On Feminine Noses.
The subject of Nasology would not be
complete without some observations on the
Feminine nose, because sex so modifies the
indications, some of* which, though the
.agreekrble and repulsive in a man, are rather
,pleasing, fascinating, and bewitching in a
woman, and vice versa.
It is the fashion for women to aspire to
equality with the other, sex, and as long as
they will be content with an equality, in a
different orbit, they are undoubtedly entitled
to it. It should, however, be the equality
of planets-each perfect and beomiful, each
useful and beneficial in itssphere; but preg-
nant with disorder and confusion' when Ve-
nus would invade the orbit of Jupiter, or
intrude within the circuit of Mars.
No intelligent man denies to woman such
an equality; but as certainly as a good house
wife would pin a dish cloth to the coat tail
of' a husband prying into the mysteries of
the kitchen, and claiming equally with his
.wife in the household sphere, so surely will
imen cry, out against and turn with disgust
%from women who invade their province of
warriors, statesmen, merchants, &c.
Nevertheless, let us not be misunderstood,
or be accused of including in a sweeping
clause those cases which are, of right, ex-
ceptiops. A woman may be placed in such
a p.ositidn lhat active life is her legitimate
spherer, and that if she neglect or devolves
its cares upon others she is culpable. We
all feel an enthusiastic respect for the noble
Boadicea, arousing her pusilanimous coun-
trymen against the'cruel ravages of the Ro-
mans, and dwell with admiration on Eliza-
beth haranguing her army at Tilbury, and
personally engaging in affairs of State, be-
causethey were occupied in dutieswhich
became a,monarch; yet if 6 woman, who
has no call to any higher duties than those
of domestic life, were; to leave them to en-
gage in the cqtest of warriors or the turm-
oil of politics, .we should regard them
as an unfeminibe.yitago. Notwithstanding,
though the woman may in some cases be
needfully sunk in the station, those duties
which become the former will engage more,
of our love and regartd.than .those which be-
long to- the latter, and 'our own graceful
Queen has secured, by her happy union of
the duties of both, more of the love and res-
pect of her people than any of her prede-
cessors on the throne of these -realms.
The energies and tastes of women are-
generailly less intense than those of men;
hence their characters appear less develop-
ed and exhibit greater uniformity. That
their passions are stronger is undeniable,
jut these do not make character.,-nor are
exhibited in .the Nose. Their Idexesare
bthe eyes and mouth, and therefore their con-
sideration formsno part of the present sub-
jct. This uniformity of character is no-
ticed by Pope in a line which at first-sight
reads libelrlus, either because it appeared
to refer to moral conduct-which it does not -
-or because it is too sweeping and exag-
gerated. He asserts roundly,
"Most women have no charactersat all."
No characters at all is obviously false; but,
as compared to men, as near the, t'rth as
most general epigrammatic rules are.' It is
in the latter sense that Pope used it to illus-
trate the difficulty of discussing "1The
characteristics of women-' after a disserta-
tion on those of men. The line, however,
was truer in his time than it is how,, when
more general and more liberal education has
tended very much to break up the uniformi-
ty of character which existed among the
inane ladies of Pope's era.,
Nevertheless, whether repressed by art or
curtailed by Nature, women's characters
certainly appear less developed than those
of men. 1t Nature, it is a blessed provi-
sion-all Nature's providing are.' It is
thb woman's place to be in" rational subJec-
tion to, the man ; and. they do not fear -toI
acknlowledge that they have no respect for
the'man who succumbs io his wife, or ad-
miration for the, woman who aspires lo
denude her husband of his appropriate sym-
bols of masteirdooni. n,.
If this, happy infIeriorily-an infeririVy ;
whichplaces them faKabp.ve men in pr; R^
wisdom, in as much.as it consists in shr'I
practical commonsense against man's intel-
lectual blundering--if this happy inferiority
is the result cf art, ..t!'ey exhibited in 'is
adoption much sound wi.isdom. Man is an
Insolent, domineering, self sufficient animal
--let him say what he will about the eleva-
tion of',tle fernale mind, we believe no man
ever fefil. in lore witbha woman whom he felh
to be wiser than himself. e could not en-
dure.. for-anpartner for-life, sucb a perpetual
looking glass, and. reminder of his own in-
fi mities; htcould not bear the constant at-
.testation pf his own weakness. He could
~egard patiently the vaunted accomplish-
ments df, another man, but he could not
submit that his wife should be ,his acknowl-
edged superior, and to be her foil--perhaps
lool. .. ,
Hence it is that, wise men so frequently,
that it has become proverbial, marry silly
women. However: much a learned, ma
may admire female ac~cot.mplishments, he
detests a woman whostriv~es to riail himmin
his'own sphere, who is talking philosophy
when he would be whispering soft noth-


ings," and who freezes his ardent admira-
tion with a disserjtion mathematics,, or a
moral discourse oqi self-control. He can
bend, like 'any-other inan,with intense joy,
over the blushing girl who iremblingly be-
lieves that her eyes are. brighter agd more
lovely than. the. stars over her head; .but
would fling from him with disgust the wo-
man who would repress .-his harmless and
true-because .soul felt--flattery, with a
philosophical, desquisition on the:.nature,
distances, and Offices of the aforesaid stars.
And. it is because learned wornmen too o(-
tet strive by this injudicious, ill-timed wis-0
dornm, to catch learned me.n for. husbands


(and there are no more determined husband,
hunters than blue stocking iwomeni because
they are always within a year or two of4 be-
ing shelved,) that the latter are necessarily;
flung into the arms of women that they know
can't -bore them with an eletnal round of
sense, from which.;every one is glad occa-.
sionally to escape, and never more so thanu
when he is in.love.
Hence it is that blue-stocking women areD
proverbiaily avoided by m'en; not :heeauset
men despise or dislike their learning bixt
because they make such ill-timed use ofiti
They may be admired, but theyacre never ,
loved ; they may talk as wise and as learned
as is in their power, but learning and wisdom
never won a lover, much less a husband.
Ve'r. sap. my dear lady leader, and ifyoii
don't understand the abreviate, ask-ask-
anybody -ol your .htsbdind. .
Whatever the cause, it Irs almost indispu-
table that women's characters are generally
less developed :'than those'of men; andthis
fact accuiateiy accords with the -usual de-
velopement of'their noses; But for a small'
hiatus in the liros'nf), Pope's line would
read equally well thus; -
Most women have no Noses at all." '
i: Not, of course that tie nasal appendage
is wanting, any more-than :'Pope,' intended
by the original line that women's character-
istics were wholly negative; but that like
their characters, their Noses are, for the
most part, cast in a smaller arid-less develop.
ed mould than the Nose'masculine.
Injudging. of the Nose feminine,,-there,.
fore, comparison must mil bme made with the
masculine, but WJilih oih.r feminine noses.--
All the rules and classifications, apply, to th'e
one as well as the other, but allowance is to
be made for sex.
The Roman Nose largely developed in a
woman mars be-auty, and iurparts a hardnessr
and masculine energy to the face which is
uopleasing, because opposed, to, our ideas of
woman's softness and geolle temperament,
'Ini aman we admire :s.ern-energy and bold
independence, and: aitn' forgive,, for their
sakes, somewhat of coarseness; but in a wo-
man the former,are, at thlie least, Unprepo'ds-
sessing and unfeminine, and the latter -is ut-
terly,'intolerable. Women's best sustainer
is a pure mind ; man's a bold heart 1
Moreover, the exhibition of character in
woman should be different from that in men.
From the masculine Roman Nose we- may
justly look for energy in the active depart-
ments of life, but in a woman itis indications
are appropriately exhibited in firmnress and
regularity in those duties whirrh leginately
fall to her lot. We do not like: to.see a wo-
man so endowed launch out uncalled foN
into the bustle'and turmoil -of the world, or
endeavour to ta.e ilrm-. Coins C goernrmedn
from her husband, tho-ijg4i",be maybe equ-
ally well fitted for the ta.isk -'bnt we ate co-
tent to see her govern her household with
energy, and train up'hter children in a sys-
temratic and uniformn.manner. ":
She will form her;plans ofhouseiold mat-
-nagement with promptitudej and.carry iheri
out with undeviating firmness ard decision;
and her husband will.act wisely for his own
sake, not to inteillfere with her, so long as
her energy does not carry her into" his de-
partment. i
But if woman's circumstances place he'ir
in a more extended spieie, her.career will
afford an example to illustrate our bypoihei-
sis as well as that of a man. Of this we
have an example in ihle illusitiious Roman
Lady, Livia, the wife of A ngstus. "
Her, nose presents a combination of-tl
Roman and tlie Greek, and contains as 4mil'C
of the former class as is cumpawible with
female beauty. The accounts whith are
handed down concerning her are-ivery con-
tradictory. It is, however, uinleniabte tha
she was a.woman of -considerable power of
mind, which she exercised energetically and
shrewdly in procuring the. a'gg-randieineal
of her son Tiberius, on whlose.. head. sho
finally succeeded in placing thle imperial

A late arrangement with the British publiilshers
of Blackwood's Magazine secures to us early
sheets .of that work, by which we shall be able:
to place the entire number in the hands of sub-
scrib~rs before any portion of it can be reprinted
in any of the American Journals.. For this and,
other advantages secured to our subscribers, we
pay so large a consideration, that we may be
compelled to raise the price of the Magazine.
Therefore we repeat subscribe early Wlhile the
price is low.' '

AN ANTEDILUVIAN REtlC.-The public
have perhaps already had. notice of some
bones lately dug up on the top of a moun-
tain in Vermont.' In passing over th(
mountain a few days since, I called to exa
mine them. Enough hias been found to
enable an anatomist to make out the shape
and size of the animal and his habits of life
One of the tusks measures six feel seven
inches in length, and weighs ihirty-six
pounds. The material, its color and tex-
ture, seem likehorn, but its shape is more
like a tusk. One tooth weighs seven pounds
These remains were scattered about in miry
earth, -eight or ten feet under the surface-
The'pair of tusks or horns were one hun-
dred feet apart. That it is an aintediluvian
animal, there is probably nodoubt. The
men at work on the Railroad, who found
him,.thought he came down to drink, and
sunk in the mire. But it may not be im
probable that he perished when thewindows
of heaven were opened; when the fountains
of the great deep were broken up; when
the swelling floods- of the sea rolled up the
mountain side.-Partland Mirror.

CALIFORNIA ITEMS.--L'etters ,have beth
received at New York from Chagres ald
Panama to the 1st inst., which is a monih
later than previous dates. The passengers
by the Falcon, 201 in number, and those by
the John Benson, about 50, all reached Pa-
nama in safety. The eager first few paid
enormous prices for the passage over to'the
Pacific,' but those who took matters more
quietly went over at the regularprices. The
natives about Chagres were much astonish-
ed at the irruption of these Northern Argo-
nauts, and more especially at the quantity
of luggage they carried, there being among
Ihe party 2,700 trunks and 100 tons of other
baggage. No passenger was sick, at Cha-

COMMERCIAL AOTVERTISER.


Njosen of the abovr-nramed gifted women
'were Greco-Cogitative.
But the power of expression, though es-
sential to a poet, is not necessary to a poetic
mind. It may exist as strongly in one who
;has no word% of fire to give its creations ut-
'tennce as in one who pours forth in lavish
self-abandonment the riches of his soul.
Neither is the Greek Nose a necessarylin-
des of poetic faculty. That f;,rn may adoru
the face, but no rapturous fervor exiah lire
mind; although it will frequently accom-
pany a poetic temperament, because it indii-
cates relinement, hnd purity of taste. These
are its invariaiblije indicatisms, and in these
eCery woman so gifted will excel ; for to ex-
del in'these is almost her peculiar province.
,1o the minor and domestic departments of
life, where woman's influence is -so pecu-
liarly blessed, t4he refinement of (lithe Greek
Nose wMi appear in those household ;tr-
faogements-which make home the happiest
and most beloved spot on earth. It wil
'exhibit -itself it her needle-work by an ar-
'listic arraBgement of colors and a poetic
,ehboice of subjects; in a neat and elegant
attire, io the decorat-ion of her drawing-
Toom, or in thim paraphernalia of her bou-
doir. Nor need it be confined to tlihose ele-
gaocies which-st-im to belong exclusively to
'the -hilgher rVhsses-a cup of flowers in a
-collatge window, ilie well-ielecied trimmings
of a Sunday cpl or a pretty ornaimtent on
the mantelnhtIelf, will equally bear an evi-
dieee of a refined taste Iand be found to ac-
-company a Greek Nose.
Thle Cogit.tive Nose des n -quently 'appear among uw(ornen as among
mnen. Women ratlerfeel than thliink. Their
perceltions w.r+e inltuiltive. 'inslinctive ; men's
Cogitative. They are shrewvder and inore
instantaneous in eliina;ting clharacier, or in
deciding on action thaiRn men. Men minust
think, and fume, antd fret, before they can
decide; must, in crtnmnon parlance, set 1the
head, (reason) against thlie heart (instinct ;o)
while women rely more on the latter, and
eare consequently, in judging of character or
in deciding on a course of inoral conduct,
inore frequently right than Mrani,
Our advice to a tnan would he tlis, iT
.you are at a loss after long cogitation-as
ten IQto one you will be-to know wheilher an
intended act is morally right, ask a sensible
woman, and she will guide you with perfect
wisdom in a minute.
So again; if you would know any one's
moral character, let a sensible woman con-
verse wiih him for five minutes and she will
tell you without fail whether he may be
trusted. Only be careful and accept lier
first dictum; -don't argue the point with her
(or give her time to think; have her in-
stinctive decision. If she thinks she wi41 ,be
ten times more at fault than a man; and if
you argue the niatter with her,she will lead
you a dance through as fine a quagmire of
absurdities as can be conceived, antl there
leave you, up to your neck in the slough,
without the power-if not without the will
-to help you out. And this needfully so.
Instinct must ever be a better guide than
Reason ; for,
In this (Instinct) 'is God that acts, in
that (Reason) 'tis man?'"
11 The perception of wom-n," says Sher-
lock, "is as quick as lightning., Her pene-
tration is intuition, almost instinct. By a
glance she will draw a quick and just con)-
-. tlusion;:t ,Ask her how she for,,,ed- it, and
She cninot ;,ntr('he question. While
ahe trusts her instinct she is scarcely ever
deceived, but she is generally lost whei she
begins to reason." A more accurate pic-
tute of the female mind was never drawn;
yet some modern writers have fiercely con-
troverted it. Under a mistaken notion ol
equalizing women with men, they seek to
destroy the individualism of their character.
One witty popular writer has ventured tc
assert, that if half a dozen -boys were brought
up as girls, and half a dozen gitls as boys
the latter would be to all intents psycho
logically men, and the fiWrmer pisycblogi
cally women.
Sorely a more preposierous absurdily
nevep-won the assent ol the unthinking par
of the community ; nevertheless, it has beer
warmly applauded and often repeated, as i
it were an ascertained fact instead of a ridi
culous fancy.
The Jewish Nose is not very frequen
among women." Neither are its indication:
material to the perfection of the femnlh
character. It is the duty of men to relieve
women from the caresofl commercial life
and to stand between them and th,,se whi
i would impose upon their credulity. More
over, womau's natural penetration supplie
the want of the thoughtful sagacity whicl
protects men in the commercial relations.
The remarks which we made on the Snul
Nose and" the Celestial Nose, in men, re
quire to be eonsiderably modified whep w,

SWe confess a lurking penchant, a sort c

rather lovable. It is a wo-in'in's place to b

From the Califl'ornia Stalr.
The City of San Francisco.
Yerba Buena, (San Francisco) the name
of oar town, which means good herb," is
situated on the south-west side of the prin-
cipal arm of San Francisco Bay, about five
miles from the ocean, on a narrow neck of
land, varying from four to ten miles in width
--the narrowest place being sixteen miles
south west of the town. It is in lat.3745
N. This narrow strip.of land is about sixty
miles in length, extending from the point
formed by tihe bay and tIlie ocean, to the
valley of San Jose. The site of the town
is handsome and commanding-being an in-
clined plain of about a mile in extent from
the water's-edge, to the hills in the rear.-
Two points of land-one on each side, 1x-
tending into the bay, form a crescent, or
small bay, in the shape of a crescent, in front,
which tears the name of the town. These
points afford a fine view of the surrounding
country--the snow capped mountains-the
green valleys beneath them-the beautiful
smooth and unruffled bay in front and on
either side, at once burst upon thfA eye.-
Thiere is in front of the town a'small island,
rising high above the syrlace of the bay,
about two miles long and one wide, which is
covered the gremer part of the year with
the most exuberant herbage of untrodden
freshness. This little island is about three
miles from fhe shore. Between it and the
town is the principal anchorage. Here'ves-
sels of all nations rest in safety anti peace,
and their flags are displayed by the aromatic
breeze. Two hundred yards from the shore
tliere is twenty-four feet water, and a short
distance beyond that a6 tnany fatho'mrs. The
beach intnedia'tely in front of the now busi-
'nesa part of the town is shelving, but it Will
no doubt in a sAhoit time be'filled upand be-
come the most valuable part of the place.
The climate'here is, in the winter, which
is the rainy season, damp and chilly. Dur-
ing the balance of the year it is dry, but
chilly, in consequence of the continual
strong winds from the north and northwest.
There is but little variation in the atmosphere
throughout the year; the thermometer rang-
ing from fifty-five to seventy degrees Fahren-
heit. Yerba Buena is one of the most
healthy places on the whole coast of the
Pacific. Sickness of any kind is rarely
known aminong us. The salubrity of the
site of the town-its con'tiguity to the mouth
of the bay-the finest harbor on the whole
coast in front-the rich and beautiful country
around it, all conspire to render it one of
the best commercial points in the world.-
The town is new, having been laid off in
1839, by Capt. John Voigeit: and notwith-
standing all the troubles in the country, haoe
gradually increased in size and importance.
It now contains a population of aboh five
hundred permanent citizens. Two years
ago there were but about two hundred.-
Three miles south is the Mission Dolores
on Mission creek, surrounded by a small
valley of rich and beautiful land. The
water from this creek can easily be brought
by means of aqueducts to any point to sup-
ply vessels. For the supply of the citizens
the best of well water is obtained in every
part of the town, by boring the distance of
forty feet. In going south from Yerba
Buse:a, the iravell.r passes over this narrow
neck of land ; a most delightful region, in-
terspersed with hills, valleys and mountains
S--the valleys rich and beautiful--he hills
covered with tall pines, rvdwoodl and cedar,
that have withstood the tempests and whlirl-
Swinds of a century, and the mountains rising
in majestic grandeurto the clouds. In pass-
ing out, the valley of San Jose opens to tie
view in all the loveliness of the climate of
Italy and beauty of the tropics.
f This Valley is about 60 miles in length, and
ten in width, The Pueblo, which means
an incorporated town, is the principal place
Sof business for the valley, and is about five
t miles fromrn San Clara, the landing on the
bay, or as it is termed hero, the embarca-
daro.'" Passing on from here northeast, the
traveller in a few hours' ride reaches the
Strait, Which separates t-he Suslun bay.
formed by the confluence of the Sacramen-
Y to and San Joaquin rivers, from that of San
t Paplo. Here it-seems that the accumula-
nf ted waters of a thousand years had suddenly
rent the opposing mountains asunder, and
flowed with tremendous force to the great
besom of the deep. On the north side of
t the bay, from the straits to Soasilito, is one
s of the finest districts of country in all. p-
e per California. Next to Yerba Buena, So-
e asilito is the best point on the whole bay for
, commercial town. It is seven miles a lit-
o tie east of north from this place, on the op-
" posits side of the bay, and has long been a
s watering point for vessels. An attempt has
h recently been made to lay offandbuild up a
town at the straits, to supersede the two last
b mentioned places. \It will +no doubt, how-
- ever, be an entire failure.
e 'S.an Francisco bay being the safest and
mobl commodious harboron the entire coast
if of ihe Pacific, some point on it must be the
t, great mart of the western world. We be-
e' lieve Yerba Buena is the point, commanding
t as'it does now, all the trade of the surround-
n ing country, and there being already a large
h amount of capital concentrated here. The
o town of Yerba Buena is called in some of
r- the old maps of the country San Francisco.
!. It is not known by that name here, however.


s The town takes its name from an herb to be
a found all around it, which is said to make
d good tea ; and possessing excellent medicin-
e al qualities, it is called good herb, or Yer-
I- ba Buena.


gres. The letters from Panama do not
speak of any crowd of persons there waiting
conveyance to the North. The California
had not arrived, but was expected about the
10th inst. We understand that Lieutenant
Frisby, of the Albany Company attached to
the New York Regiment, has written to his
family that he-has accumulated $200,000
worth of gold dust. It will be remembered
that the while ship Washington, of New
London, which put into Montere'y at'the
first breaking out of the gold fever, was de-
serted by all her crew. A letter has been
recently received at -New L Oten, from one
of these runaway gold-seeings, stating that
"the shabbiest sheep of ithe old Washing-
ton's crew 'has got_$150,000.worth 'h'f gold,

MR. VEDITbR: +
-J have shown alte 'that tbose soliciting I
a change of laws affecting the colored crews
of'"vessels in tiae..rt of Apalachicola, are
not i .Jenified. ffthe interests a'nd'the for-
Wnes d'l o re-that the attera'tion does
ia[ect 9iage of policy in this regard--
and I n6wwill undertake the 'other task of -'
shoiying that the present law is fraught with
evibs inmrinsic to itself.
', lre- law provides tMiat such'Cefews tMay
renigip-on board without beingkconfined in
jai, provided that no master, captain, or
other person having charge of such vessel,
sh11l ailow- such vessel to and'hor nearer"
than Aive miles o" the city of Apalacbicola,
or allow such negro crews to have cdofin'm-
nication with any other vessel, or shall land
upon the shores of such bay or port."
It was proposed, in altering the law, thatits
provisions should be more stringent even
than they were before, but upon inspecting
the -abover it will Appear that such persons
may visit other vessels, and, mix with our
negroes upon shore-, subject only to be im-
prisoned if they are found but, which in a
community so little Vigilant as ours& will
never be, and if they are, they incur only
the same punishment imposed by the former
law, upon their coming to the port. I am
at a loss to see i'rwhal respect "its provi-
sions are more stringent.'" But it is cer-
tainly the privilege of the master to imprison
thern on shipboard so long as it is their in-
terest to do so, and as thus he will always
have an efficient crew to store his cargo, as
thus he may indulge an instinct o'f "tyranny
without the possibility of punishment, and
thus will have a crew caged for his passage
home-it is to be presumed that he will hot
only do this, but tasting the sweets of pow-
er, will bring that class of persons aut with
him wrien he comes again, of which the
natural tendence most surely is, to induce a
throng bf negro sailors to our port. Inde-
-i^endentbof- d-anger to -our .rtitinbs, tlie
which gentlemen will not permit.my appre-
hending, the evils of this state of things'are
most apparent; for vested thus with a tem-
porary despotism over his crew, the master
is in his acts restrained by no considerations
of interest, for they are not his property-
no Fear of censure, for his acts are never
known--ot criminal punishment, for, here
he cannot be informed upon, and elsewhere
he cannot be tried for offences done within
this State ; and although we may feel some
assurance in that-solicitude for the race
and in those principles of puritanical piety
'in which those residing at the North, and
who will Chiefly execute this trust, do so
preeminently transcend us, still it is impro-
pei for the State pt Florida to vest in any
class of persons power so extraordinary.
Again, if it be true that the tendency of this
lay is to bring amongst us those only upon
wYottt this power may be exercised, in effect
it becomes the same as though the State of
Florida had passed a law that no sailors
coming to this port shall be allowed 10 land,
ob shall visit any other Vessel, and that upon
al, capiarbs inay exercise acts of unques-
tione~d sovereignty. I think it exceedingly.
probable that hose who advocated the above
alteration would have no great b'bjection to
this :provision also, for thus we would have-
fewer brawls in the streets, certain sailor
boarding houses would be abandoned.-
Frejd from annoyances incident to these,
" they could in sedurtiiy and comfort prose-
cute the purposes of their temporary resi-
:deuce, and in the egotism natural to man,


Suppose the State a gainer by the relief
which they experience,' B-at are theirs thie
Only interests to be conqmlted ? The sailor
who comes to our shores affected-by no
qualities to disturb the health or institutions
of our country, sh~oeld be free to come-
the landlord who receives and entertainshim,
the shopkeeper who sells him goods, and
the men on shore who thus may find em-
ployment by supplying his place, n ship:-
board, areas proper subjects of care and.
consideration to the State, as any whose
wealth and energies expand under her free
Institutions. For trade may leave our city,
and our merchants follow it,-the State
must still reinain, and even an humble pop-
ulation would be better than to be left de-
serted. But if no change occur, still their
residence is important. The humble of to-
day are not necessarily the abadoned of
to-morrow. In the race to greatness, the
start is just as good from the shanty as from
the mansion. So speak our marts of com-
merce-so speak the Halis of Congress-
and no Stafe can be truly great whose bu-


a native debt of allegiance to the soil. Such
are the men whose residence the law in
question has a direct tendency to discour-
age, and though I wish them no legislative i
encouragement, I still claim for them a free
field of competition:for the business incident !
to the shipping in our ;port; and so much
do I object to partial legislation, that as,
great as are'the evils that 'wouldresult from
an unobstructed intercourse of'free negroes
with our salves, even that Would be'better
than the operation of the law in question.
I do not say that the law, as it stood, was r
the only thing that saved us from servile in- (
surrections ; but I do say that certain per- !
sons in 'the 'fre6 Sttes have evinced more 4
eal than discretion in 'i e case of Free-
dom-that they have scrupled at 'no mea-
sures to imfrom our negroes and ourselves 't
upon the subject-that the coming of'r.ee
negroes among us was regarded as a means
the most efficient by which influences un-
friendly to our institutions could be extend- r
ed-that in vteit ofthis the State of Florida I
prohibited theirdcoming-that that prdohibi- /
lion 'was never more necessary than a-t ihe ,
present time, and that the alteration effected (
is a virtual repeal of the law upon the sub- 't
ject. In oppbsirion to the'present law, 1 d6 o
not say that negro sailors will entirely su-
persede white sailors in our port, and that N
if:they do that any lower class of our popu- i
latioh will be entirely divested of ei'mpl6y-
ment and be driven away ; but I do say, that
the extraordinary power 'conferred upon 1
masters, has a direct tendency to t'he '66e I
effect from which as necessarily reSu'ris the '4
other; and believing both" the repeal :and
substitute in opposition to the'true interests I
of the Stat'i, harve oppobged the'ti both. In 4"
these positto'ns 1 ai5 said it trand alone. IT
I am alone in opinion, t regrei it hur'ch, buft
if, while others think with me, I am aton'e
in opposition only to the moveinent~sof those
whom I might 'ee1m W0s't solicitous 'to
please, 1 am proUed 'of t'at posYtion. For Vi
am of those who believe that patrIo tismis s
not merely a name, that he who professes it
it may not-be a knave, who' practices it, not
necessarily a simpleton; and that to be
welded-to the soil we stand upon-to feel
her interests pulsate through our veins-to
share her trials and her triumphs-to have
no hope but for her success, n'ojoy but in
her gladness, and to rise through her so-
ciety to aims and purposes more elevated
than prdlecution of a selfish intrust is a
state of being worthy of a man's ambition,
and it will be comfort in my loneliness to
have exhibited one feature even of a stake so
glorious.

TAfE LATE VINTAGE IN FRANCE;-Dur-
ing the year 1848 there were 5,000,060
acresof land in France planted with vines,
which produced 919,580,575 gallons of wine
and 37,220,050 gallons of brandy; estimated
at the enormous sum of 478,088,302 francs,
(.f19,120,000.) The average vioane of each
acre of vines may- be taken at '530 francs
(921.) The annual consumption by each
individual in France is calculated at seven-
teen gallons of wine and ihree gallons ot
brandy.

Panama 'Rail Roacd.
We are indebted to the 'Hon. TiOMAS,
BuT.LER KINa for a copy of his report on
the contemplated appropriation to aid in the
construction of the above named road.-
The Repcort is marked with 'that distin-
guiahed aSbility which has attained for M
King the reputation of a wise and pracrica'la
statesmtnan. He manifests a great khowv-
ledge of the commercial relations of this
country with China, and the countries bor6
de'ring on the Pacific, and demonstrates
clearly the immense advantages I which are
to flow 'from the possession by our citizens
of the contemplated road. The arguments
are well sustained by figures, and are of a
character to dispel all doubt as to the bene-
fits which will redound to the commerce of
the count-ry from the completion of the road.
We see it-stated that the Whig Delega
lion in Congress from Pennsylvania are pre-
pared to urge the appointment of a Secre-
tary of the Treasury from that State. In
several of the Western States,the Whigs
have heMd meetings, and passed resolutions,
requesting General TIaylorto select a mem -
ber of his Cabinet from the North West.
As such proceedings are the order of the
day, we should like to see the Southern
members join in preferring the request that
the Navy Department shall be conferred on
a Southern man. That Mr. King would
receive the unanimous support of the
Southern Delegation in Congress for' that
office, there can be no doubt. His past
Congressional career is marked by devotion
to the interests of the navy, and characteri-
zed by intelligent efforts to promote the
prosperity of that branch of the public ser-
vice.
Correspondence of the Baltimore Spn.
WASIINGTkON, Jan. 21,1849.
The Slavfry Question-Public Sentimentat
the Souih-The Territorial Questaon-
Washington Slave Pens.
We learn from the South, !har grPal e.
citement prevails, almost universally, on ihe
slavery question. The proceedings of the
Southern meeting, are the subject of deep
feeling and interest. Dissolution of the Un-
ion is every where famil:arly talked of, and
its advantages to the South dveltllpon. :
This stale of feeling will be much en-
couraged by the adoption of Mr. Calhounr's
report. That report will, in all probability,
soon receive the signatures of all the demo-
cratic and even some of the whig Mhembers
who are now hesitating or reluctant to coun
penance it. Popular sentiment at the South
may compel them to du it. Thus, the
southern meeting acts on public sentiment,1
and public sentiment acts on the meeting.
It is vain to say that, under such circum
stances, tile Union 4s not in danger. Any
one can see from the tone of the -remarks
even of grave Senators, in the debate on
Monday, that there exists a settled hostility
Sagaifnst the Union, which is not easily to be
appeased, and which might, if a little ag-
gravated by imprudent legislation on the part,
of Congress, soon end in an organization of
the Sojuthern Stares into a separate coi-
federacy.
The statement in' the above letter that
"great excitement prevails at the South on
the slavery question," is, sofar as our in-
formation extend%, not true. Great efforts
are made by the Democratic press to get up
an excitement on the subject, for political
Sprposes, but they have been rewarded with
t but slight success. 'It was no doubt hoped
by those who called the Southern Meet-
Sing," that it would "1act nn public senti-
ment'--that is, manufacture an excitement
s which but for the movement in Washington
f would never have pretrailed. It was alsb
expected that-such excitement would reaQt
Son Southern members of Congress, and
e trive them to take part in the udltr mve-
e sures proposed,
If action ever becomes necessary, ";rx-
citement' would go far to weaken the coun-
sels of the South, and defeat measure in
e tended to avert disaster. Cool reflecrion
ending in firm determination, is more be-
i coming, the South, and safer for her inte
rests. .

A FARciCAL DUEL.-A duel laielY batfi

was discovered to be the star Arcturus.-a
Like Canopus, Arciurus is a red star, and
it is to be remarked, that this character
of stars are, more affected in their apper-
