HOME MARKET.
Since our last business has assumed a somewhat brisk
appearance. -The Cotton market has felt a slight anima-
tion, and some sales liave been effected at prices varying
from 8 to 91 cents. There are some prime lots in mar-
ket held above the latter quotation.
There have been a number of arrivals from foreign.
ports, ind our merchants' are filling their ware houses
with fine stocks of goods. The River continues low, but
some of the lightest drift steamrboats, make their trips to

S-WE are authorized to announce
GEORGE T. WARD, Esq. of Leon coun-
ty, as a candidate for Delegate to Congress,
at the election in May next.- Dec 23

In announcing Major Ward, as a candidate for Con-
gress, it would seem necessary that we should say one
word in explanation. When we commenced this Jour-
nal we took ground in favor of a Convention, and, we
still advocate that Convention. But in the last St. Jo-
seph Times, we notice the regular nomination of Col.
Downing, as we fairly presume by some one of his polit-
ical friends; therefore we consider ourselves at perfect
liberty to put up the name of Major Ward, which we do
with the expectation still, that the Convention will be
held, and if not, that lie will run the race through, hav.
ing taken the track. ,

To. Our Patrons.
When we took possession Qf this establishment, we
gave notice, that our terms would be cash in advance
for all subscriptions-and wye are determined to adhere
tothat-rule. The Printer is more imposed upon, and by
his own consent too, than any other man, of any other


profession in the world. His business,-thlc out-going session of Congress : the application will unquestionably

public seem to expect that lie shall furnish them with a
good Newspaper, handsomely printed, and regularly and
safely delivered at their door every week, upon twelve
months credit, and the number is not a few, who get
mad, whenever a printer's bill is presented. Now to
avoid all that is disagreeable in this business, we give no-

No GO-IoOULD'NT KU.1 IT--O. P. H.-For several
weeks past we have heard naught exciting save the talk
of a tradi between Apalachicola and St. Joseph, where-
'by the latter was to become the property of time former,
upon a certain consideration to be paid. The steamboat
bells rang out their merry peals-the barge horns blew
their loudest blast-the cocks crowed, and the Guinea
fowls screamed their sweetest notes;-all nature animate
and inanimate seemed to be enlivened, and to-partake
of the joyous feeling in expectancy. The waters of
Lethe were to go over all past unpleasant feeling between
the two rival cities, and they were to stand forth robed
in bridal garments, and in tho presence of congratulated
individuals, (very much interested) they twain were to
be made-not one flesh-but one bustin town. All very
well. Accordingly, their Agent of the Apalachicola
Land Company-a committee on behalf of this city,
and certain representatives of the Columbus interest
held in this city, met by appointment in the city of St.
Joseph on Monday, the 14th inst. On their arrival
St. Joseph, as we are told became all interest-all excite-
ment. The good citizens left their avocations and met
at the corners of streets-at the Shakspeare, Byron,
and Pickwick Houses, at the Favillion, and everywhere
else; wild looks were exchanged-blank countenances
exhibited. In the midst of this thrilling and awful scene,
a portion of the committee from 'our town,' inspired to
almost frenzy, by tihe fond hope of gaining so fair a con-
quest as St. Joseph, appeared in front of the Pavilion sing.
ing with stentorian voices, a song somewhat after this sort,
"What has caused this great commotion, motion, mo-
tion,
This town all through?
-It is the trade a.going on.
Apalache wants you and your Railroad too-you and
your Railroad too,
For St. Joseph's a used-up town, town,
St. .oseph's-a used-up town-
Then sell us your dear little town." -
But the St. Josephl boys were not to be wheedled and
sung out of their pleasant place of abode-there's some


years struggle with an unconquered foe, whose ravages
have been confined to no particular portion of the coun-
try. 'Who then is he, who calling Florida his home,
would not in all his public conduct, take for his motto,
"Respublica."
As to the question of State Government, there are a
diversity of opinions on that subject; some are of opinion,
that we are in a suitable condition to assume the cares
and responsibilities of self 'government; and believing
that the Constitution framed at St. Joseph, is as good an
instrument as could be made, are eager to enter the Un-
ion without delay; whilst others more timid, are fearful
lest our resources should prove inadequate to the burthens
and expenses of state government: and urge,-not with-
out force we admit-the inconsistency of becoming. a
state, whilst an Indian war is raging in our midst. But
if those of the latter class, will show us how, and when,
the Indian war will be brought to a close in oui present
condition as a Territory, then we will postpone all our
notions of state government until we see the close of that
disgraceful affair. It may be urged, that our taxes, al-
ready too high; would necessarily become onerous, were
we thrown entirely upon ourselves for support, to which
we reply, 'those who dance must pay the piper.' If the
condition of Territorial Government be so obnoxious,
degrading and irksome as some think it, why then those
to whom it appears so, should certainly be willing to al-
low a reasonable compensation for deliverance from a
condition thus disagreeable and humiliating.
We will not pretend to say, whether it will be the part
of wisdom or not, to apply for admission.at the coming


Having visited this establishment occasionally, I beg
leave to make a few remarks upon the performers and
their performances. .r
On Wednesday evening I witnessed the Hunchback.,

old coons there. There was a bonus of thirty thousand
dollars, to beplanked down upon the board by Apalache,
the moment the trade should be made; and some of the
older coons who nest in St. Joseph asked of our commit-
tee, "in what sort of funds do you expect to pay us this
amount ?" The answer was, "in your own script, gen-
tlemen," "a hem !"-said one-"N. G."-cried another
-"d'ye see any thing green," softly interrogated a
third, as he put his'thumb to his nose, and gently moved
his fingers. Here there was a scatteration. The Saints
betook themselves to their respective employment, ut-
tering 'curses loud and deep,' while 'our folks,' turned in
to hard drink for ought we know. The Times of the
16th, says: "after a conference and interchange of
views, the negotiation was finally broken off, so that we
trust in future to hear no more of the sale of St. Joseph."
"Alas! by what slight means, are great affairs brought
to destruction."

ORATORIO.-We are desired to say. that an Oratorio of
Sacred Music will be given by Baron. De Fleuir, at the
Epise6opal Church, on Friday (Christmas) night, com.
menacing at 7 o'clock.
The Baron is a highly finished performed on the Or-
gan aud Piano Forte; and the public journals in Charles-
ton, S. C., Athens and Columbus, Geo., in all of which
places lie ha given Oratorios, speak of his musical en-
tertainments in high terms of praise.
The price of admission will be one dollar, and the pro-
ceeds are to be appropriated for the benefitof the Church.
Nothing further need be said, to insure a general atten-
dance.

I9j Our correspondent Talma, has brushed over the
Theatre this week, and therefore we play mum ;" fur-
ther than to remark, that Mrs. Hart's benefit ,on Mon-
day night was a crowded house, and the Deep, deep
Sea," went off with much eclat.

"How coLn IT iS !"'-'Ah,-said Bogman-'step hith-

Gilbert, while 1 perform a warming operation upon you

ST. AprUsTizxE AND PXksAcoLA.--These two ancient
cities situated at the extreme points:of Florida,. arc a-
like in many respects-such as health of climate, bca.u-
tifol women, and pleasantrefined society. But in rcja-
lion.to some other matters, they differ, materially; and
mostly, with regard to political excitemrient. In St. Au-
gustine, party spirit in politics, runs as high perhaps, as
in any other portion of the Territory, not excepting, even
Tallahassec, the very hit-bed of political ahnd' 11,0thlcF
sorts of excitement. But quite different with Pensacola;
There an eternal u,,br:..en q.ii l hnc., over- the people,

phia Banks will positively resume on the 15th of Jan..
Sight Checks on New York, were selling in Colum-
bus, on the 17th inst. at 5 per cent, and falling daily.

BANK OF PESSACOLA.-It seems that the interest on
the Bonds issued by the Bank of Pensacola, and guaran-
tied by'the Territorial Government, has been paid. The
PensacolajGazette of the 28th of Nov., says:-We 'are
gratified to learn, and not less gratified at the opportuni-
ty to do justice by recording the fact, that the interest
was duly paid.by Jaudun up to July 1st, 1840, before his
departure from England, where, it seems, these bonds
are held.
'Wheie's the use of sighing'-as the steamboat said
when she lost her 'scape pipe.'
OorTRAGE.-George Everhart a man in the employ of
Win. Worriker, near the seven mile post, on the road to
St. Joseph, on Monday last inflicted a severe blow on
said Warrikcr, with the breech of his gun, causing a
dangerous wound in the temple of said Warrikcr.
Everhart has been lodged in Jail for safe keeping,
where he awaits his trial.

Tuesday, 2 mile heats, $1,000 entrance, $250 forfeit,

We are gratified to notice from the above, that our
old friend Col. Crowell, was successful at Augusta. He
is the Napoleon of the Turf in Georgia .the owner of
Robin Hood,-Bascombe, Lady Nashville, Bolivia, and a
string-of 'young uns,' that promise to rival their prede.
cessors. We hope the Colonel will show himself and
horses at our races in February.

superior, equal to any I ever witnessed, except Miss VF,
Kemble ;-but in the scene where Clifford as tie secre,
tary of the new Lord, failed in two particular points,
but, in a great measure, it may be attfribtcd to an- in,
avoidable accident which occurred at the opening of the
scene. Mr. FIEmL as Master Walter, does, in many i'
stances forget himself, by attempting to imitate. If Mr.
F. would cast this aside, aid give his rearesentations
more in correspondence with his own natural coneep,

of Theresc, should reduce his donations at least one

readings generally, are of an elevated order; he only,
wants study and experience.
Miss WILLIAMS is a little in fault; she& should ended.

acquired by carelessness.) As Countess De Morville in
Therese, she was excellent; one word more to the ladv:
a little-less gesteculation, less tossing of the jieai, &e.
Mrs. HAaT as Mariette, would have done credit'to'i

DIVIDENxS OF TiIEUr-viT .STAYiES BASEx.-A most
mistaken idea prevails, that the Directors of the Batik
of the-United States, are prohibited from making a
dividend ofthe profits of the Bank"uiatil rhe capital stock
is whole. .
This woul.d. a difficult matter t deeid. One Di-
rector might set rine value uipon its. assets, anI another-
Director another value. : t -
The charter of the Bank' declares that Dividends of-
so muchl of the -prfits as tli' )ireetorh may deem ad--
visabTi-, shill be declared twiceea year,. &-. Bnt such
dividend ,shall in no caso exceed tlhen aiomunt of the iteti
prq-lts actually -icquired lih lich Bank,. so that the-
capital stock of the said bank, shall even thereby he-
impaired.'
It will be seen, therefore, that the Direetors are only
prohibited by law from dividing tile eaital,. unar tho-.
name of profits .
But they are actually instructed-by the elh.ter, to-d-
vide the nett profits, whenever they dcumit advisabIe. ?
STEAM TO INDIA.-The first steamer fronl Bomblay to-
Suez on the Red Sea, was the Vitoiria-1She.was built.
of teak wood at Bombay, and cost .$25Q,000--..Shmo-
started on her first trip from Bombayon the 1st ef Aprii.
arrived at Suez on the 2Ist, and anchored in the harbor
of Bombay on tile i5th of May--haviug made lte trip.
both ways in 3 (clays. Slihe wits detained at Aden;, at
the straiis of Babel Mandeb, over .30 hours. It is be.
lived that she can accomplish the whole in 30 -lays.,
By thell Victoria, news ywas received from London,.via..
Malta and Alexandria, in thirt, -two days! Formerly,
on-shipboard, round the Cape of Good HIoge,it took.four.
nionths.-Baltimore Clipper,.
RAILr ROADS.-Muchi misapprehension exists and has,
exited on the subject of Iranspartatiun on Rail Roads..
While tie Savannah and Hlacon road was bringing down'j
thousands of bags ofcottoa, persons were -to be found
i. 1-i v. .ild gravely question t le ability of Rail Roads to
transport heavy articles of mLichandize.
In truth, the Liverpool and Manchester, and the Bos-
ton and Lowel Railways, had fairly solved the problems
of transportation, while the opinion seemed to be ahmnot
universal, that the utility of these Roads would be limit-
ed Mainly to the transportation of passengers and light
freight.
From the journal l Commerce.
The opinion that Rail Roadsare of little or no value.
for tIhe purpose of transporting goods, althoirgh "very-
common, is entirely erroneous.
Experience has already shown, and is daily tendering
it more and more apparent, that in the busy and densely-
populated parts ofT the country a very large portiu ot the
receipts may be derived from this source,
A statement of a few facts in relation to.some, ofi ltoh
principal New England RaiLRoads, taken from the An-
nual Reports in January last, beforQ the Legislatutre of"
Massachusetts, wll ow thoim ertane of this kind ot'
b u s in e s s "
The receipts, on the Lowell RHuil Road from the trans.
portation of freight and passengers, were ..$240,219 94 ;
of which $105,182 5.9 were for. transportation of amcr-
'chanrise; ;exceeding by more than $t 13,000 the entire-
expenses of the Corporation of every kind during the
year, and this although the road is a very short one (211
miles,) and the Mi.ddlesex Cana is in operations between
the sa mne points. "
The propemtio, of the merchandise receipts qn the
Boston and Providence Rail Road is less; but the amount
is by no means inconsiderable, being $72;93,9 11 dirling
the same year.
On the Boston and Worcester Rail Road the receipts
for passengers were $122,495 92. The freight, mail,
&o. $|100,251 16. Leaving about $100,000 from freight
alone.
It is also stated that similar results are shown by the.
business on the Norwich and Worcester Rail Road,
which commenced its operations only in the SprihgC of
the present ear. .


The principal expense on the Rail Roads of moderate'
inclinations, is the loading and unloading of the goods ;
and it is thus apparent that if by one continuous Raif
Road, or the union of a number of distinct Rail Roads, a.
long unbroken line is obtained, the expense of Rail Rogf"
transportation is essentiall7 diminished. .

the following little ballad, it is from the pen of a young
Irishman who will be happy to contribute some original
matter of a light value to your columns.

SHE'S BEAUTIFUL.
1Ballad-tBy S. LE M -.
she's beautiful, as thro' the dance her footsteps move
along-:
'There's beauty in 'her every glance, and music in her
song,
sAnd she is smiled upon by all, but their smiling answers
only
To make hler; mid'st that festive scene, feel yet more cold
and lonely,
'For tho' upon her snowy brow, bright flowers with gems
are weaving,
She weeps in silence for the home and early friends she's
leaving.
She's beautiful, she's beautiful, e'en loyalty might bow,
Before the light of loveliness that rests upon her brow;
And still she walks the brightest star beneath that costly
-dome,
But her heart, her heart is pining for its own lov'd cot.
tage home;
For tho' upon her snowy brow, bright flowers with gems
are weaving, -
She weelis in silence for the home and early friends she's
leaving.

very. elegant in her proportions, and -formed to cut thr0p'

used by-other steamers, in -heing single bla-des of iron,
only oise blade on emeh side of the vessel, and not a sc-
ries of blades brought into the water by the revolution
of th* wheels. Each blade is very.broad and large, and

ENTRANCE 1re OFFICE, IN CHESNUT.STREET.

all case in advance.

E WE are authorized to announce
GEORGE T. WARD, Esq. of Leon coun-
ty, as a candidate for Delegate to Congress,
at the election in May next.- Dec 23

In announcing Major Ward, as a candidate for Con-
gress, it would seem necessary that we should say one
word in explanation. When we commenced this Jour-
nal we took ground in favor of a Convention, and, we
still advocate that Convention. But in the last St. Jo-
seph Times, we notice the regular nomination of Col.
Downing, as we fairly presume by some one of his polit-
ical friends; therefore we consider ourselves at perfect
liberty to put up the name of Major Ward, which we do
with the expectation still, that the Convention will be
held, and if not, that he will run the race through, hav-
ing taken the track.

To Our Patrons.
When we took possession Qf this establishment, we
gave notice, that our terms would be cash in advance
for all subscriptions-and we are determined to adhere
to thatT-rule. The Printer is more imposed upon, and by
his own consent too, than any other man, of any other
profession in the world. His business,-thle out-going
part-is all cash. To his workmen he must pay cash
weekly,--and for his paper and ink cash; and yet the
public seem to expect that lie shall furnish them with a
good Newspaper, handsomely printed, and regularly and
safely delivered at their door every week, upon twelve
months credit, and the number is hot a few, who get
mad, whenever a printer's bill is presented. Now to
avoid all that disagreeable in this business, we give no-
tice, that we shall, in a few days, send our bills for one
year's subscription in advance from the 15th November,
1840,' when those who do noi like that mode of collect-
ing, can desire the individual presenting the bill to have
their paper di-'co'liii'. -, and then we shall save our pa.
per, ink, and labor. -
We are pkaled to know that the Press of Florida is
generally in favor of cstal.lishing the cash system;, al-
ready ile Star, and Quincy Sentinel, have taken a stand
in r,'lation to the matter, and the last ft. Joseph Times
S tha.' its bills will ble immediately forwarded, and
"after a interval, the papers of those who neglect
to pay, mu ,t b diL"ontinued." Our neighbor of the Ap-
alachicoian we feei pon. nt wil adpt ,. same rule.
Printrs and Editor, a. guerally deriominated bad
payandso they are-buthog -inhe name of all that
ishonest, can we pay, when nobdo' pay s ? .Ti't itell

Thli lamon'T.d J..-I lI| M.WRhite, once-said, 'divide the
Tcrritury, anJ you.will-not have a-State in fifty years.',
ITl: sp-ke as 'in.- lorig knowledge, and almost prophlet-
ic vision. If it be desirable, that we should become a
state, then is it necessary, that the East, West, and the
Middle, should be linked together as with hooks of steel;
for the population- contained in the Territory, taken /in
the aggregate, isbarelysinffieient to gain -us admission;
and to -strike oft' the East, the Middle and the West
would lack population-'at the present time, and most
likely forever: and further,' divide at .the Suwannee, and
the West may call for another division at the Ap,.laclii-
cola; for even now, Escambia, and if we mistake not,
Washingten and Walton counties would have no objec-
tion to being united to Alabama, and in such event, who
does not see that the declaration of White, would come
true. A Territory in the East, with only here and there
an inhabitant, and a gloomy prospect of any considera-
ble increase in point of population; the West joined to
Alabama, and-the Middle, although a rich, fertile coun-
try, yet near y equal in population already5 to whatit wilh1
ever reach/ in all probability-and where is even the
shadow of hope for a State Government? Not only
would "fifty years" clapsc, ere the important object of
forming a state could be accomplished,but all time, we
venture to say, would fail to bring about such an event.
The thing could not be done; neither Middle, nor East
Florida, would ever grow to the ratio of representation.
Those therefore, who are anxious for Florida to be
admitted into the Union,'and who long to sec her stand
proudly amongst time states now composing that Union,
must gather themselves for the opposition of division,
and bend all their energies to the uprooting, and over-
throw of that doctrine. If we go into thie Union at all,
it must be, as 'Florida, one and indivisible.' It were
madness to talk of division. -Through evil, and through
good report we have cleaved together. Have we not
been one common people, for years and year gone by ?
True the East, is far removed from the Wesn, a.d even
distant from the centre; and in days past, i'htl course of
legislation it siay have been said that there could be no
concert of action, no sympathy of feeling between a peo-
ples6 widely separated; but time has proven that such
opinions could only have been given for effect by cant-
ing politicians.
Upon that bloody and relentless war which has spread


its sad desolations all over the lovely garden of the East,
have not the other portions of, the Territory steadily
looked with whatever of sympathy belongs to human
nature 1? Yea more, have they not cheerfully marched
to their deliverance and left their blood and bones as


faithful witnesses of.their friendship ? From Peisaco.
la to St. Augustine, the entire Territory, is knpwn as
one upon the map of history, identified as one by common
feelings and interests, and consecrated as one, by five
years struggle with an unconquered foe, whose ravages
have been confined to no particular portion of the coun-
try. VWho then is he, who calling Florida his home,
would not in all his public conduct, take for his motto,
"Respublica."
As to.the question of State Government, there are a
diversity of opinions on that subject; some are of opinion,
that we are in a suitable condition to assume the cares
and responsibilities of self 'government; and believing
that the Constitution framed at St. Joseph, is as good an
instrument as could be made, are eager to enter the Un-
ion without delay; whilst others more timid, are fearful
lest our resources should prove inadequate to the burthens
and expenses of state government: and urge,-not with:
out force we admit-the inconsistency of becoming, a
state, whilst an Indian war is raging in our midst. But
if those of the latter class, will show us how, and when,
the Indian war will be brought to a close in our present
condition as a Territory, then we will postpone all our
notions of state government until we see the close of that
disgraceful affair. It may be urged, that our taxes, al-
ready too high; would necessarily become onerous, were
we thrown entirely upon ourselves for support, to which
we reply, 'those who dance must pay the piper.' If the
condition of Territorial Government be so obnoxious,
degrading and irksome as some think it, why then those
to whom it appears so, should certainly be willing to al-
low a reasonable compensation for deliverance from a
condition thus disagreeable and humiliating.
We will not pretend to say, whether it ivill be the part
of wisdom or not, to apply for admission.at the coming
session of Congress : the application will unquestionably
be made, and it will go up strong and earnest, from all
portions of the West and Middle. But-at the same time,
petition on petition, will go from the East, and be laid
before the same body, praying for a division of the Ter-
ritory; Here then, will be a perfect contradiction, and
one that must strike Congress as altogether singular and
inconsistent. The Middle and the West, asking that the
Territory may be admitted whole and entire as she is,
and the East pleading for a division Of course Con-
gress will throw aside both. Nor will Congress, we think,
pass any such bill as that introduced by Mr. Downing,
at the last session authorizing the division, and suffering
the East to remain as a Territory, while the Middle and
the West must. lookout, and become a' state when and

No cGO-KOLDn'N T KUx IT--O. P. H.-For several
weeks past we have heard naught exciting save the talk
of a tradp between Apalachicola and St. Joseph, where-
-by tIhe latter was to become the property of the former,
upon a certain consideration to be paid. The steamboat
bells rang out their merry peals-the barge horns blew
their loudest blast-the cocks crowed, and the Guinea
fowls screamed their sweetest notes;-all nature animate
and inanimate seemed to be enlivened, and to-partake
of the joyous feeling in expectancy. The waters of
Lethe were to go over all past unpleasant feeling between
the two rival cities, and they were to stand forth robed
in bridal garments, and in the presence of congratulated
individuals, (very much interested) they twain were to
be made-not one flesh-but one bustin town. All very
well. Accordingly, thIe Agent of the Apalachicola
Land Company-a committee on behalf of this city,
and certain representatives of the Columbus interest
held in this city, met by appointment in the city of St.
Joseph on Monday, the 14th inst. On their arrival
St. Joseph, as we are told became all interest-all excite.
ment. The good citizens left their avocations and met
at thIe corners of streets--at the Shakspcare, Byron,
and Pickwick Houses, at tIme Pavillion, and everywhere
else; wild looks were exchanged-blank countenances
exhibited. In the midst of this thrilling and awful scene,
a portion of the committee from 'our town,' inspired to
almost frenzy, by tlie fond hope of gaining so fair a con-
quest as St. Joseph, appeared in front of the Pavilion sing.
