ers and the manufacturers, who had a direct in-
terest in encouraging this spirit of speculation.-
there had been many schemes suggested for doing
away this evil, but it was quite clear that nothing
could be done unless a sufficient number of the
manufacturers were to unite together for the pur.
pose. Cotton belonging to Manchester men was
imported into Liverpool and there sold; but it had
been suggested that it should be brought to Man.
chester and there sold to the consumers, and that
the trade should be kept from Liverpool during
:he next three or four months, and that the Man-
chester cotton should not go into the hands of th(
Liverpool brokers, (cheers,) and the people of this
neighborhood would have the satisfaction of know-
ing that their money went into the pockets of theit
own friends, rather than into the hands of the
brokers, bankers and money lenders of London
and Liverpool. Mr. A. Buckley and Mr. S. ,L.
Behrens also spoke. Mr. G. R. Chappell denoun-
ced the present mode of paying the Liverpool
cotton brokers: which made it the interest of the
brokers to rob the manufacturers. There were
some brokers who were exceptions to the gene-
rality of their class, and were honorable men; but
such was the tendency of the present mode of
paying them for purchasing cotton. Some resolu-
tions were passed, and a committee was appoint-
ed to mature a plan of action, and report to a
meeting to be held on Friday.
LIVERPOOL, Feb. 10D
Ireland.-Our accounts from Dublin are to the
evening of the 9th ult. On the 6th and 7th and
8th, the Court of the Queen's Bench on the State
Trials was occupied in closing the defence, and
in the opening of the Solicitor General. Nothing
of any consequence occurred, on Friday, the 9th,
the twenty-third day of the trials.
The Solicitor General continued his address
this morning at ten o'clock, and concluded about
two. The Chief Justice then proceeded to charge
the jury. As far as his lordship has gone up to
post hour, his address is most favorable to the tra-
versers. He has characterized the opinions
broacitpd as to the Queen's prerogative as sedi-
tious, and has altogether agreed in the definition
of the law of conspiracy, as laid down by the
Crown. It was probable the charge would not
conclude that night.
The Dublin Corporation.-The following is
the answer to the address of the Dublin Corpora-
tion, presented on Friday by the Lord Mayor and
some of the Aldermen and Town Council. The
Queen received the deputation about half past
two o'clock, in the presence of the Duke of Wel-
lington, Sir Robert Peel, and other members of
the Cabinet-" 1 receive with satisfaction the as-
surance that sentiments of loyalty and of attach-
ment to my person and crown continue to be
cherished by you. The legal proceedings to
which you refer are now in progress, before a
competent tribunal, and k am unwilling to inter.
rupt the administration ofjustice according to law.
It is at all times my anxious desire that any grie-
vance of which my people can justly complain,
should be speedily redressed; and I confide in the
wisdom of the Parliament of the United Kingdom,
for the adoption of such legislative measures as
may be necessary for that purpose."
France.-Toulon and Marseilles advices speak
of terrific gales in the Mediterranean. Immense
quantities of snow had fallen throughout France.
Spain.-General Shelly, Political Chief of
Barcelona, has been appointed Governor of Ma-
drid.
According to the Imparcial of Barcelona, Prim
received his passport for Madrid on the 28th.-
He hhs been made Governor of the penal colony
of Ceuta, in Africa.
Accounts from Madrid to the 2d inst., report
another insurrectionary movement at Alicent,
Valencia and Santander. Sixty persons, inclu-
ding some of note, had been arrested in the cap-
ital.
State of Trade.--MANCHESERt, Feb. 9. We
are precisely in the same position in our cloth
market as for the last two or three weeks, and
without the least prospect of any change, at least
for the present. The advance on cotton has near-
ly paralysed both spinners and manufacturers, as
well as buyers-only the most trifling and urgent
orders are executed, nor will be till speculation
on the staple ceases, and prices in consequence
become steady.
BRADFORD, Feb. 8.-We have nothing new to
report this week, and a large business is still do-
ing, and higher rates asked for all descriptions of
goods. Yarns-very ready sale, and spinners re-
fuse to make contracts for future delivery. Wool
-the demand for wool continues good, and as
there is no chance of a diminished demand, no
reduction in prices is now anticipated, are very
firm.
LEEDS, Feb. 6.-The demand for all descrili
tions of woollen goods is on the increase, and pri-
ces on each piece are fully as high, in some cases
positively advanced. This arises from the low-
ness of stocks, and from the well known fact that
extensive orders are in town. On the whole the
state of business is encouraging.


From the Louisville Journal.
THE LAST INTERVIEW.
BY AMELIA. I
Here, in the lonely bower, where first I won thee, p
I come, beloved, beneath the moon's pale ray, i
To gaze once more, through straggling tears, upon [
thee,
And then to bear my broken heart away; t
I dare not linger near thee as a brother;
I feel my burning heart would still be thine ;
How couldI hope my passionate thought to smoth- C
er;
While yielding all the sweetness to another,
That should be mine i
Bad faith hath willed it; the decree is spoken; C
Now life may lengthen out its weary chain, I
For, reft of thee, its loveliest links are broken;
May we clasp them all in Heaven again.
Yes, thou wilt there be mine, in yon blue heaven;
There are sweet meetings of the pure and fond;
Of joys unspeakable to such are given,
When the sweet ties of love that here are riven
Unite beyond.
Arglorious charm from Heaven thou dost inherit!
The gift of angels unto thee belongs;
Then breathe thy love in music, that thy spirit
May whisper to me, thro' thine own sweet songs;
And though my coming life may soon resemble
The desert spots thro' which my steps will flee,
Tho' round thee then wild worshippers assemble,
My heart will triumph if thine own but tremble,
Still true to me.
Yet, not when on our bower the light reposes
In golden glory, wilt thou sigh for me,
Not when the young bee seeks the crimson roses;
And the far sunbeams tremble o'er the sea;
But when at even the tender heart grows fonder,
And the full soul with pensive love is fraught,
Then with wet lids o'er these sweet paths thou'It
wander,
And, thrilled with love upon my memory ponder
WVith tender thought;
And when at times thy bird-like voice entrances
The listening throng, with some enchanting lay,
If I am near thee, let the heavenly glances
One gentle message to my heart convey;
I ask but this--a happier one has taken
From my lone life the charm that made it dear;
I ask but this, and promise thee, unshaken,
To meet that look of love-but oh! 'twill waken
Such raptures here!
And now, farewell! I dare not lengthen
These sweet sad moments out; to gaze on thee
Is bhss indeed, yet it but serves to strengthen
The love that now amounts to agony;
This is our last farewell-our last fond meeting;
The world is wide, and we must dwell apart;
My spirit gives thee, now, its last wild greeting,
With lip to lip, while pulse to pulse is beating,
And heart to heart.
Farewell! farewell! Our dream of bliss is over;
All, save the memory of our plighted love ;
I now must yield thee to thy happier lover,
Yet, oh remember, thou art mine above!
'Tis a sweet thought, and, when by distance parted!
'Twill lie upon our hearts, a holy spell,
But the sad tears beneath thy lids have started,
And I-alas! we both are broken-hearted--
Dearest, farewell!

FOREIGN NEWS.
From the N. Y. Herald.
FROM EUROPE-FIVE DAYS LATER.
The Atlantic express packet ship Siddons,
Capt. Cobb, has arrived from Liverpool with in-
telligence to the llth ult.
The splendid packet, the Queen of the West,
arrived at Liverpool on the 9th ult. She crossed
the ocean in fifteen and a half days.
A private letter from Rome (19th ult.) states

that the negotiations for settling the difference
between the Court of the Holy See and the Cabin-
et of St. Petersburgh do not make any progress.
The balance sheet of the public income and
expenditure forl the year 1843, has been publish-
ed by order of the House of Commons. It exhib-
its for the past year an income of 52,582,817;
an expenditure of 51,139,515.
The radicals have lately been busy circulating
a report that her Majesty is considerably in debt.
Mr. Blewitt, M. P,, for Monmouthshire, had the
delicacy to ask the question in the House of Com-
mons on Monday, when Sir Robert Peel denied
that there was any truth in the rumor.
Letters received from Varna, mention the total
destruction of that city, by which a loss of four
millions of piastres has been caused.
The Glasgow Chronicle says it is probable that
the cotton spinners of that city and neighborhood,
will turn out for an advance of wages.
The fine packet ship Yorkshire, Capt. Baily,
arrived at Liverpool on the 7th ult.
British Parliament.-In the House of Com-
mons on the 5th ult., to questions put by Lord
Monteagle, the Duke of Wellington stated that
the government did not intend to propose any
committee of inquiry relating to the Bank of
England, because there was sufficient information
to legislate upon already before the House; and
that they did intend to adopt measures, during the
present session, for the renewal of the charter of
the Bank of Ireland upon principles similar to
those of the Bank of England. His grace further
remarked that the renewal of the Bank of Ireland
charter depended on circumstances entirely differ-
ent from those on which the renewal of the Bank
of England charter rests.


Conspiracy of the AManchester Cotton Spin-
ners against the Livepool Cotton Brokers.-The
recent advance in the price of cotton at Liver-
pool, has excited considerable apprehension a-
mong the cotton spinners of Manchester and the
neighborhood, not withstanding the advance that
has taken place in the price of manufactured
cloths. A meeting on the subject was held at
Manchester, on Saturday, when not less than five
hundred individuals were present. Mr. Robert
Gardner, who called them together, took the
chair. He suggested the working of only five days
per week, and not to light up the mills from the
19th or 20th of this mouth, and that those Man-
chester men who had large stocks of cotton, should
sell, at the present prices, to those who were
without, in order to prevent the latter going into
the Liverpool market, and giving higher prices.
Mr. Edmund Ashworth said, that the present
speculation was owing to some of the London
bankers and money lenders, whose circulars they
had seen, offering to advance money for invest-
ment in cotton, if they could only find responsible
parties willing to make purchases; and the pay-
ments were made through orders upon Liverpool
bankers. There was a class of men called brok-
ers, in Liverpoo'l, who stood between the impor-

FROM HAYTI.-Capt. Smith, of brig Republic,
from Port au Prince, informs us that there had,
been a serious disturbance at a town called Petit
Hevera, a few miles from St. Marks, between
the civil authorities and military, which ended
in the death of one General and six Government'
officers. The north part of the Island being dis-
satisfied with the Constitution formed at Port au
Prince, the government party attempted to force it
upon the people, and hence the disturbance.-
The Blacks were so exasperated at the Mulattos
of St. Marks, that the latter were advised by the
General in Command, to go away. In conse-
quence, several hundred had arrived at Port au
Prince-leaving every thing behind. What is the
fate of St. Marks we shall hear by the next arrival.

Hoaxing a Clergyman.--A. shocking" hoax
was played off lately on a clergyman in New Or-:
leans. Just as.he was about to pray, the sexti
handed him a note; as it was written in the us '
manner, he read aloud:---"The prayers ofthia
congregation are requested for a young man gone
to sea-his sweetheart." The worshippers were
astounded, the minister indignant.

d- ALABAMA CADETS.-Our city' has been
enlivened for several days, by the visit of this ju-
venile corps, who arrived here on Tuesday last,
in the steamer Charleston. They are well drilled
and disciplined, and their soldier-like appearance,
and genteel demeanor are alike creditable to their
talented commander.-The school is situated at
Eufaula, under the charge of Major CHARLES
GOLDSBOROUGH and assistants; who, beside the
usual military instruction, teach all the various
branches of an English education, mathematics,
civil and military engineering, &c., &e. We are
much pleased to see a school of this character so
well patronized, and feel confident that, under
the instruction of such gentlemen as Maj. Golds-
borough and Mr. Bullock, it will have full pros-
perity.
Military pride should, at all times, be encour-
aged, as well by state as by national governments ;
and we have no knowledge of a better mode of
imparting it than by teaching it to the rising
generation, as one of the elementary branches of
their education. In the event of war, or inva-
sion, it is to those who have studied the art and
science of war that we must look to organize our
militia, and lead them to victory.
On Thursday, the Cadets partook of a collation
at the Mansion House Hotel, where they were
greeted by his honor the Mayor, and other citi-
zens, and regaled with fruits, ices, and other
delicacies of the season.

The Habeas Corpus Case.-His Honor Judtge
WARDLAW yesterday disposed of the application
for the release of Mr. M'ARTIN, 'late' President
of the Phoenix Bank of Columbus, Ga. by sending
that gentleman back to prison to await the, ap-
plication of the Executive of Georgia.-Charles-
ton Courier.
The release was refused on the ground that the
alleged offence, although but a misdemeanor, was
a very grave one under the laws of Georgia, and
sufficient to warrant the detention of the prisoner.
2. That the absence of the prisoner from the State,
at the time.of the consummation of the offence
was not sufficient to exempt him from arrest, es-
pecially as an affidavit had been submitted, stat-
ing that the causes of the bank failure had existed
anterior to the departure of the prisoner from the
State.
. We learn by report that Mr. Martin was expec.
ted at Columbus yesterday, with the agents sent
for him to take his trial for misdemeanor.

Wp- The Charleston Mercury, of the 22d, says
that Mr. CALHOUN has certainly accepted the
appointment of Secretary of State, and would
pass through that city in a few days, on his way
to the seat of government.

LINES TO DELIA.
BY WILLIAM SIDNEY.
Ah cruel, cruel fair one, turn,
And listen to my sigh;
How can you thus my friendship spurn,
Nor tell the reason why ?
If I should speak a word of love,
To wound your gentle heart,
Swift, swift my melting thoughts would move,
And burning tears would start.
A tear for thee-it falls from eyes
Bedew'd with kindness yet;
For thee my noblest wishes rise
That glow'd when last we met.
0, ever thus, it is my fate
To be the fair one's sport--
The subject of the gossip's prate,
And theme of false report.
Ye cruel guardians of my fair,
Why rend her tender breast?
Relax your stern and watchful care,
And time shall bring us rest.
Ah dearest, dearest fair one-turn,
And listen to my sigh t
How can you thus my friendship spurn,
Nor tell the reason why t
Apalachicola, March, 1844,

The Oregon.-The accounts of this section of
the country differ very essentially. Some describe
it as a terrestrial paradise, others as little better
than an arid desert. Of the latter class is the fol-
lowing, published in the National Intelligencer,i
as an extract of a letter dated Topic, Dec. 18th,


1843."
r This letter will be taken to the United States
by Mr. Hastings, who is on his way home from
the Oregon Territory. He gives a very ba4 de-
scription of that country; in fact, he says that it is
a county that can never be settled by an agricul-
tural people. I see that a considerable uproar is
constantly made in the United States about that
country; but I have seen a great many persons
who have been to that section, and they all coin-
cide in opinion with Mr. Hastings. This gentle-
man, induced to believe that it was a complete
paradise, took out one hundred and forty settlers
from Missouri; but they all found their way to
California. Some of the missionaries have given
a very false account of that country."

JVot a Pennsylvanian.--A merchant, says the
Boston Post, who was unfortunate in business in
1823, settled with his creditors, paying them 40.
per cent., has since, by industry and perseverance,-
prospered in business on Central Wharf, and has
recently called on those who were his creditors,
and paid them the other sixty per cent. Such
examples are an honor to good old Boston.

The musical circles of New York are soon to be
delighted with the appearance of a new star in
the constellation of song in the person of Madame
Unbuk Heiberg, from Sweden, a lady said to pos-
sess a voice of the extraordinary compass of three
octaves, and in its tones very much resembling
those of Madame Malibran.

"-Powerful Gas Light.-A magnificent gas
light was exhibited in Philadelphia, some eve-
nings since, intended for the Wilmington Light
House. It was so brilliant that it pained the eye
to look on it. The gas is manufactured of rosin.
It is just the thing for light-houses, and is cheap.

The negro race in the United.States is a great
nation, not like the Jews, kept aloof from the
rest of the world by their own pride, but by the
cdhtempt which their useful qualities can never
obliterate. To them the greatest misfortune
would be to shut them out of Texas. It would
result in their speedy redundancy in States in
which the white population now presses heavily
on them. This, Mr. Walker thinks, would not
result in emancipation, for slavery would continue
even after the value of slave labor had ceased;
because so immense a multitude dare not be set
at large. The danger would be too great, and if,
in spite of the danger, they were still set at large,
they would be forced into the states now free
from them, and become a common nuisance and
heavy charge on the country. On the contrary,
leave the matter to time an the regular operation
of our social and civil institutions, and the slave
finds his way to. Texas, and thence to Mexico,
where he will meet with a race who form no ob-
jection to his color, or his smell; and where there
is a climate genial to his constitution, and a soil
and country ample for the wants of his whole race.
Bancroft, our eloquent historian, says that the
negro race had no hope of a home and a residence
in the new world, except through the operation of
slavery. They have in this way obtained pos-
session of the fine island of Hayti, and are acqui-
ring further rights in the tropical regions of this
continent. Through the operation of the domes-
tic slave trade, the negro race is rapidly tending
to the South. There his harbor is of most value,
and there his constitutional adaptation to the cli-
mate gives him a firmer and a surer hold on the
country he may be made instrumental in subdu-
ing. Indeed, it does not seem unreasonable to
regard the sickly shores of Mexico, and the deep
and secluded vallies of South America, as the
final home of these descendants of Africa. With
this door open to them, and the free operation of
the internal slave trade, they can retire before
the white race, when from their numbers there
is no longer room enough in our midst for them.
Thus a peaceful and bloodless revolution is hap-
pening; so gradual 4s to leave private interest to
adjdst itself to circumstances as they arise, and
the slave owner as secure in his property as any
other citizen. It is demonstrable that in this
way alone can the value of slave property be ren-
dered uniform, and our experience has shown
that its fluctuations in value are less than any
other. These views, our readers are apprised,
are not new to us; we'have again and again ex-
pressed them, and have therefore read the essay
of Mr. Walker with the greatest satisfaction. It
was time a man of his acknowledged talents
should speak out on this important subject. It
was time our citizens should see and know the
operation of the slave trade, and have opinions
anchored on calculations worth relying on. It
was time the slave himself who, in spite of his
degraded relation to his master, is a being of a
much higher order than the imported African,
from whom he has sprung, should have some
idea that time and the course of events is work-
ing for-him aw-sow but sure deliverance. It is
time also that the benighted abolitionist should
be reasoned with, and shown that the measures
he urges are fatal to his objects, and that his hu-
manity, misguided and corrupted by the contact
of crime and violence, is doing more harm to the
negro than every other cause.
Slavery is older than history. Even that re-
finement of bondage, a division into castes, is
older than history. The Christian religion did
not indicate a desire for its mitigation till the free
spirits of the north had overrun the south of'Eu-
rope. Gradually the idea was enforced on a
brother or a child-next it was restricted to ene-
mies taken in battle-next to heathens and Ma-
hommedans, and last of all to the negro race.
These maxims, enforced by the authority of the
Popes, and by the eloquence of Christian minis-
ters in all countries, would have made but little
progress, but for the discovery that labor bought
when it is wanted, and paid for from day to day
or year to year, is cheaper than that wrung from
slaves, whose labor is bought for life. Time has
not yet been allowed to settlethe question wheth-
er the world is a gainer by this new discovery,
We are not certain that the two millions of ope-
ratives working in the factories, fields or mines
of England, are as happy as our slaves. That
they are not as well provided for, is certain.
But the spirit of the emancipator is abroad in
our land. Its effects are seen with us, by our in-
creased jealousy and intolerance of the remotest
interference with our rights, and especially in
our exclusion of free blacks from among us. Its
most painful effect is in thrusting these unhappy
men into regions too cold for their constitutional
temperament, where they have to contend for a
living with those whose superiority in all res-
pects render the effort unavailing. The conse-
quences are visible to the eye of a southern man,
the moment he sees a negro at the north. The
industry of Mr. W. has drawn forth prOofs :of
their insane, deaf, dumb and blind, who are of
necessity a charge on the community. The com-
parative exemption from these calamities among
the slaves of the south, shows how much better
is the fate of a degraded caste, under these cir-
cumstances, Yet the people of the south oa'nnot
allow these free blacks to emigrate to their shores.
They are already instructed by the abolitionist of
the north, that it is their duty to commence with-


out delay the work of violence and bloodshed.
They are taught not to rely on Providence, or on
the slow operation of the causes we have advert-
ed to. They are, to a man, supporters of a system
which excludes them from the only country they
ought to wish to reside in, and confines them to
a region unfriendly to their constitutions, and
where they are sinking, like the pyramid of the
Meotis, to be seen no more forever.
We have extended our remarks beyond our in-
tended limits. We have not confined ourselves to
the essay so often mentioned; because we deem
the subject of paramount importance and worthy
of being studied. We are not very liable to fore-
bode evil and in this case, are free to confess we
feel no great apprehension. Even in the States
tolerating slavery, the white population are two
for one of the black. We&are consequently abun-
dantly able to put down any insurrection which
can happen. But it is our duty to be ready for the
worst. England, although no enemy to slavery,
is our enemy. Her starving population are mis-
led on this subject and are ready to justify a war
with us on this question. The hope of getting
Texas, may tempt her to urge against us the third
war. Such a war would open a game for British
power and glory. But it would cost us dear.

(l- Claims against Texas.-The President
of Texas has issued a proclamation, calling upon
all persons in the United States having claims
upon the Texan government, for supplies to pub-
lic ships of that Republic, to present the same
within sixty days from the 17th of February.

03- John L. Brown-the young man sentenced
to death in April next, for running away with a
quadroon slave of whom he was enamored, has
been pardoned by the Governor of South Caro-
lina. He is, however, to be publicly whipped.

TEXAS.
Shall this fine country become a part ,of the
United States?
By the politeness of A. H. Chappell, Esq. we
have been favored with a copy of a letter of Mr,
Walker, of Mississippi, on this important topic.
This document has been drawn forth by the call
of the people of Carroll county, Kentucky,"
who requested the views of Mr. Walker on this
subject. We regret that the length of this essay
excludes it from our columns; it is an able and
conclusive argument on several questions import-
ant to the United States, and more particularly to
the South.
If the system of government which has been
adopted by the United States is to be sustained
in the great family of nations, it becomes import-
ant that the field on which it is planted should
have a commensurate extent. The extent of
modern nations is becoming greater every day,
and our readers will not contemplate the vast dis-
proportion in the dimensions of despotic and free
governments without being sensible that the
United States is small enough to maintain her
ground in this fraternity. The conquests of oth-
er great nations are .constantly extending over
people of every hue, and their systems look to
governing tribes and states the most dissimilar in
every particular. Our system looks to the growth
and extension of our own kindred and the raising
up of citizens and brothers, and not subjects and
slaves. Since the United States was acknowl-
edged an independent nation, the territories she
has acquired do not possess a population which
will, in time to come, present an exception to the
homogenous character of our population. The
conquests of England and Russia cover regions
whose population and languages will not give
way to the relations they are placed under. 'Our
conquests open a new region to our laws, our
rights and our liberties; theirs bring them sub-
jects who must obey their laws and pay the tax-
es imposed on them. But we will return to the
path of our author.
The British empire has an area of 8,100,000
square miles, with a population of 200,000,000 of
souls; Russia, 7,500,000 sq. miles, with 75,000,-
000 subjects; the Chinese Empire, 5,500,000 sq.
miles, with a population of 250,000,000; Brazil,
3,000,000 sq. miles, with a population of 6,000,-
000, and the United States, 2,318,000 sq. miles,
with a population of about 19,000,000, including
Texas and the Oregon territory; and yet leaves
us by far the smallest of the five great empires of
the earth. About one-eighth part of this terr.ito-
ry is the present Texas, unquestionably a part of
that Louisiana which was purchased .om France
by the United States, during the administration
of Thomas Jefferson, whortived to see and regret
its being allowed to relapse to Spain, under the
diplomatic management of John Quincy Adams.
Mr. Walker shows that this large territory was
given up to Spain without an equivalent, and un-
der circumstances which many- ofouxr ablest poli-
ticians considered not binding on our government,
and that, in fact, a good and valid title to it yet
remains in the United States. But since we
have acknowledged the independence of Texas,
we may well waive this claim and accompany
our able guide in the contemplation of other
views of the subject.
We do not think it necessary to follow Mr.
Walker in his description of the several modes
by which Texas might become a part of the Uni-
ted States. We think it enough that both Govw
ernments are independent powers and have an
unquestionable right to do, in friendship and for
mutual benefit, what other nations are doing ev-
ery day, in spite of the protests or resistance of
the weaker power. We think, after the acqui-
sition of Louisiana and Florida, and the acquies.
cence of the world in these measures, it is too
late to discuss our right to re-acquire Texas,
which once unquestionably belonged to us. It is
sufficient that it has been shown that the only
party to this question, on the side of Texas, has
already spoken. The people of that country al-
most unanimously desire to be re-annexed to the
United States. It has been proven that, in taking
into our arms this young Republic, we do not ac-
quire subjects who are to be compelled to abide
by our laws, but citizens ready and willing to
plant our banner on the soil, and defend and up-
hold our laws to the last extremity. The ques-
tion is, therefore, fairly before us, and is to be
considered in regard to its policy alone. It is to
the interest of the United States-and we may
well say it is to the interest of, the South-that
Texas should become a part of our great confed-
eracy. These questions Mr. Walker discusses
with great ability; and here we purpose bearing
him company. We will remark, that the ques-
tion of foreign interference he has not discussed,
except in relation to Mexico, the only power
which can set up the shadow of a claim to inter-
fere. The people of Texas have achieved their
independence from Mexico and the whole world.
The United States have once acknowledged this,
and England, as well as France, have followed
her example. But the question of annexation
cannot be properly discussed without a special
regard to the views and objects of England. This
grasping power aims also to acquire Texas; and,
unless we take charge of the country immediate-
ly, she will unquestionably succeed.


First, then, let us consider the danger of a
British government in Texas. We waive the
consideration of that ultimate and final danger, a
population of hostile English emigrants-who
would instantly be forwarded on-and refer to
:the' impossibility of enforcing our revenue laws
on a frontier so long, so crooked, and so easily
passed. England has already nearly monopolized
all the trade of Texas. Even now, we have rea-
son to think, they are beginning a system of smug-
gling through that country, that will swell to
enormous dimensions immediately. If we refuse
the offer of Texas, what but a feeling hostile to
us are we to expect from her citizens? It is
manifest that this interesting country is incapa-
ble of acquiring any rank among the nations of
the earth, except through the accession of emi-
grants from other nations. Vf these go from the
United States, our influence will be paramount;
if she remains as she is, our citizens will avoid
her shores and Europe furnish the germ of a na-
tion hostile to us. These are some of the dan-
gers pointed out by Mr. Walker; but what will
be the benefits of annexation ?
By obtaining possession of the coast of the
Gulf of Mexico to the Rio del Norte, our defences
against the invasion of the valley of the Missis,
sippi might be made complete. The United,
States would then occupy the whole of the most
noble.valley upon the surface of the globe. At
present, Texas owns a very important part of this
valley and of this sea coast. We cannot follow
Mr. Walker in the swelling picture he draws of
the teeming products of Texas, or rather of the
estates which would arise there; and of the vast
commerce she would carry on with the upper
part or the great valley and our great cities at
the North. We must forbear to indulge in these
views, that in the remainder of what we say, we
may notice his great argument to the abolitionists.

TEXAS.
We refer our readers to an able article in to-
dar's paper on the subject of the annexation of
Texas. This country is every day becoming more
interesting to the people of the United States, and
particularly those of the South. There have been
'various rumors in the papers that a proposition
had been made by the Texan Minister at Wash-
ngkton, to be admitted into the Union. Several of
the letter writers at the Federal,city have declared
it to be true that a treaty, which was to have been
signed by Mr. Upshur, will now be approved by
Mr. Nelson, to receive Texas into the Union ; and
that it was already understood that 38 Senators
"would vote for it. Senator Woodbury has written
.a letter to a committee in Kentucky on the sub-
ject, in which he says:-" That no constitutional
objection exists to the admission of Texas, which
:has not beeri overcome in the case of Louisiana;
and that the reasons for her connection with us
are stronger than for her connection with any
other power; her territory being within the lim-
its of Louisiana as purchased by us from France,
and her population being mostly educated under
our form of government, and their manners, pur-
suits and institutions more nearly resembling ours
than those of.any other nation. But as Texas is
now an independent government, not likely to be
again united to any foreign nation, and as no ap-
plication appears to be pending from her to be an-
nexed to this or any other government, there is no
good ground, for an interference or action on the
part of the United States, unless new facts should
occur; in which case he would be governed by
these facts, and the general principles alluded to
above."
The subject has been lately introduced into Con-
gress by Mr. Winthrop, who moved to suspend the
rules to enable him to offer resolutions disapprov-
ing of any proposition for the annexation of Texas,
which waskobjected to by a vote of 122 to 40.
The Washington papers are discussing the sub-
ject atsome length. The Madisonian assumes to
know nothing of the negotiation, but affirms from
authentic sources and documents that both houses
of Congress,and nine-tenths of the people of Texas
are. in favor of the measure; and .likewise that
they have certain intelligence that if Texas be not
immediately annexed to the United States, it will
become a dependency of England.
' The Boston Post states that the resolutions
brought into the Massachusetts Legislature against
the annexation of Texas, have not been adopted.
The Committee of Conference agreed to strike
out the third resolve. Neither Senator nor Rep-
resentative in Congress, adds the Post, are cen-

CONGRESSIONAL.
The Oregon question is still discussed in the
Senate, at great length, and with some warmth,
by both parties. Mr. Ingersoll has made a speech
in the House on the subject, and urged the adop-
tion of the resolution to give the British govern-
ment notice to abrogate the article in the conven-
tion for joint occupancy.
Mr. A. V. Brown, chairman of the Committee
on Territories, has reported a bill extending the
civil and criminal jurisdiction of the Courts of
Iowa, south and west of the Territory, to the Pa-
cific; which was referred to the committee of the
whole on the state of the union, and ordered to
to be printed.
The bill extends the jurisdiction west of the
Rocky Mountains, from lat. 42 south to 54 degrees
40 minutes, north latitude, and grants 640 acres of
land to any inhabitant of the states or territories,
who may remove to and cultivate the same for
five years. It further provides for the appoint-
ment of another judge, and makes an appropria-
tionof $100,000 for building forts on the main
pass to and within the territory of Oregon.
ImAprovements in Florida.-The Secretary of
War has made a report to the Senate (in confor-
mity with a requisition from that body some time
since, which has been printed, together with


soine maps showing the face of the country about
the Mosquito Lagoon, Matanzas and Indian riv-
ers,.and referred to the committee on Military
affairs.
Mr. King called the attention of the Senate to
the importance of ihe information contained in
thesb documents, the principal part of which
were from that gallant officer, Gen. Worth; ex-
hibiting the necessity of fortifying the Keys, for
protection in case of war. They also contain
valuable information as to the advantages of Key
West, as a military station and a harbor of ren-
dezvous, with a depot of stores. Mr. K. urged
the consideration of the subject with a view of
having something done this session, and said that
the works were such as would subserve the inter-
ests of the whole country, and there would be
no one, after examining the information from the
department, unconvinced of the fact. The ap-
propriations required to construct a canal or road
b *"* to connect the waters alluded to, and thereby su-
" persede the necessity of navigation around Cape
Florida, would be very small indeed, if the plan
suggested in the report were adopted-to employ
1" 'the U. S..troops to do the work, at a small ad-
L ditional compensation above the regular pay;
which service, it appeared from the report, the
t' i .p would willingly engage in.
