amount of freight; The number and amount cannot
be calculated..with any precision before hand, but the
circumstances referred to are such, as justify the strong-
est antioipations.of a large amount. We cannot doubt
That the business, on the road. will be such as to afford a
fair and even- liberal income on ,the whole capital, from
the moment the road is opened. The experience of
other roads not more favorably situated justifies such
an expectation." If such should be the result, the loan
now proposed, or rather the guaranty asked for, would
be rmost amply secured. If the interest on' the stock
loaned should be fixed at 5 per cent, the interest on
- the whole loan annually, would amount to something
less than one and a half per cent. on the whole stock.
To suppose therefore that the State would not be am-
ply indemnified, by the security offered, we must sup-
pose that the whole road may not give a net income of
one and a half per cent. per annum-a supposition al-
together improbable. Such a result would be a total-
failure, without a parallel in the history of rail roads.
Even in such an unlocked for event, the State would

The, Yorwich and Worcester Rail Road:-The Nor- i
which and Worcester Rail Company has made an appli-
cation to the Legislature of this State, for a loan from
the State, to the amount of $400,000 on a pledge of the j
whole property of the company, amounting to $1,400,-
000. This road when completed, will lead from Nor-
wich in Connecticut, to Worcester in this State, a dis-
tance of fifty-nine miles, and with the Boston and Wor-
cester road, will form a communication between Nor-
wich and its vicinity, one of the most wealthy and
flourishing parts of the State of Connecticut, and ,.os- ]
ton, passing through, in its whole extent, a dense and j
busy population, in both States. It is e-vient, there-
fore, that this road promises to be one of great utility,
in fostering a profitable commerce between not only
5his city, but the whole interior ofthis State, and a rich
and enterprising sect ion of a neighboring State. It is t
equally evident that tmhe improvement promises to be
quite as useful to the population at this end of the line
ofcommuication,and at the centre, asto those'at the
'other end of the line-that it will be quite as beneficial
tb the people, of Mtlsehtweets' 9'to those. of Connecti- ,
Cut. .
It is therefore with perfect propriety, that this enter- f
uprising Company, residing in the State of Connecticut,
who have already raised a capital of a million ofdollars
from their own resources-an amount sufficient to build
the part of the road which lies within their own State- c
have applied to the Legislature of this State, for aid in i
building that part of the road which lies within our own
jurisdiction. They do not propose tb apply any part of
the money which they: shall obtain by the aid of this
State, except to that portion of the line which lies with-
in the State. and not even this, any faster than they
shall proceed, with their own funds, in the greater por-,
tiohn of the work, which lies within their own State.-
But this is not their whole proposition-they ask for a ,
loan of $400,000 to build two sevenths of the road lyivg ,
in our own State, on a pledge of the whole road, lying
in both States, in which $1,400,000 shall be expended.
We conceive, therefore, thai they not only make a most
reasonable request, but that they make it accompanied ,
witli the most reasonable and satisfactory conditions, so
far s the State is concerned. ]
They ask for a loan, not of money, but of the credit
ofthe State, or public stock payable at a future day, ]
with' interest periodically, on the sale of which the
Company may obtain .the money-the Company en- t
gaging to pay both interest and principal, when due, so i
as-to render the payment of any money by the State,
either now or at a future day unnecessary; and for the
faithful performance ofthis engagement, they propose
to pledge their whole capital of $1,400,000. In other
words, to enable them to borrow the money on favour-t
able terms, they wish the State of Massachusetts to f
guarantee the performance of their engagement, by be-
coming responsible for the regular payment of the in-
terest, and the final payment of the principal, in case
the Company should fail to do so, and as an indemnity
against the hazards of such a guaranty, to take the
pledge oftheir whole property in the road),.
SIt must be very apparent, we think to any one at
all acquainted with the nature of this enterprise, that
the hazard of the guarantee, is very triflng. The rail road
is to be built through a route which we presume is .the
most favorade without exception, in regard to the facili-
ty 4f construction, of any oneof the samen'extent in the
New England States. It general course is direct,--it haib
no objectionable "curves,-it kas no inclinations ex-
cedin 0. -feet i ak mnile,-'and frorma the summit near
Wore.ater,.to. Borwic.h, it hias no.ascent whatever-the
oftly imclnatiod being the'gradual rise of the'country
frbm the seaboard 6to the interior, in following the chan-
n of a straight and beauifal-river to'its source. It is
a rote re"embling strongly.that of the Schenectady
and Utlterail road, which was- opened on the first day
of6A "tt last, and which -has already paid a-dividend
of seven'per cent.' from'the profits of the first six
ipontnfi-. Jthas in on- respect the advantage of the
Utiimoute, in" passing through a denser population,
and a region more amply supplied with Water power,
and more 'thickly planted wi lshiments. It is ascertained that between Norwich -
and Worcester, and .within five miles of the line of
"thisrtil road, there are now more than 140 manfaetur-
ing establishments. of different kinds, and about the
oame number of stores scattered through a great num-
ber of. populous and flourishing villages. J To all these
establishments and to the "population along the route,
' exceedirg ahirdred thousand souls, a direct commu-
nication wil1.b bepened by' the road, either to Boston or
to New-York, and the same avenue will invite a con-
fsiderajBi portion of the vast daily travel between Boston -
and New 'ork; and between the whole interior of the -
State and the latter city'. A population' so large, of
surqh a character, and so occupied, as those along the
line of this road, and near its extremities must bring
upon it aslarge number of passengers, and a large

improvement, of decided advantage to the people of
this State ? If so, it is worth securing at some cost,
or at least at some hazard. Is it worth the'Whole cost i
We think it is, and that if these gentlemen- of Connec-
ticut had not undertaken to build it, it would have been
sound policy in the State of Massachusetts to have
built it at her own cost, or at least to have taken the
whole hazard of its success, if persons had been found
ready to build it. But it is not requested that the'
State should take the whole risk of the fourteen hun-
dred thousand dollars, which i. will cost. It is not
even requested that it should take the risk of the four
hundred thousand dollars, which the part of the work
within this State will cost. The gentlemen in Con-
necticut have alreadyput at risk their million of dollars,
and they are willing to take the risk of the four hun-
dred thousand, so far as to pledge both it, and the mil-
ton, for the repayment of the debt. The only risk we
are asked to take, is the risk that a capital of fourteen
hundred thousand dollars, invested in 'this work, prom--
ising so many advantages, shall be insufficient to pay
a debt of four hundred thousand. If there is any truth/
in' the universal belief that such works, as that which
is Here undertaken, are public improvements,,there
can be no sacrifice of the public interest, in purchasing
this improvement on the terms now proposed.
We are happy to learn, from the 'petition, that the
work has already made so satisfactory progress. -'It is
so far advanced as to secure its completion sooner or
dAer, and the Southern portion of it at a very early p0-
riod. Nine mites of the most difficult part are nearly
graded and ready for the rails, and seventeen miles
farther are under contract, and in a state of forward-
ness. These portions of the road are oT course in the
State of Connecticut. We deem it desirable that the
portion in this State should be completed and put in
operation nearly at the same period as the part which is
in Connecticut. Let-us have a fair chance of securing
to this State a due proportion of the business, with es-
tablishments along the line, before relations are formed,
which shall permanently carry that business to'ilie
other end of the line.
We have heard but one objection made to a cempli-
ance by the legislature, with this 'application' of this
company. It is that it will be setting a precedent for
yielding to similar applications from other companies.
We do not consider this any objection. If another
company should apply, setting forth a claim on equally
good grounds-showing an equal amount of private
expenditure, for an object which promises in an equal
degree to promote the welfare and prosperity of the
State, and offering eqnally valid security for the aid so-
licited, we see no good reason why it should not be
grranted. There is in fact a case almost exactly paral-
lel. It is the case of the Eastern rail road, the stock of
which is in the hands of persons chiefly engaged in ac-
tive business, and who have a use for their own capital
in their own business, and consequently are desirous of
obtaining,,either a subscription to the stock on the part
of the State, or a loan to the amount of perhaps a third
of their capital in the road, on a pledge of -the whole
property. We know of no other analogous case likely
to occur. These two cases afford very strong grounds
for the interference of the legislature, to expedite the
completion of works of improvement which will. be of
great public benefit. The aid asked for will be of es-
sential service to the applicants; it will ensure an im-
mediate, instead of probably a dilatory completion of
the works, and it will effect this object, in the cheapest
manner possible-that is probably without the expense
of a cent. '
Maine.-In the late election in Lincoln Congressihn-
al District, Mr. Bailey has 2178 votes in 25 towniis, and

Mr. President, (said- Mr. -*.) my *Sin. pina w 4 o0
this subject have long been .knql.wn ad he 'rem n
now a& they always havi bee6. "The stit, fiApna
power of Congress to create a ank is made Mnp
parent by the acknowledged necessity which the .i-
ernment is under to ue somne soii of banW&'is14
agents. The argument stated the other day by. the
member from Ohio, opposite, to me, (Mr.' Morris)'4 and
which I have suggested often, heretofvore,'app'ars 0o
me unanswerable; and that is, that, if lh' Guveriment
hias the power to use corporations in the fiscal.ooncerns
of the country, it must have the powe',o create suph '
corporation's. I have oalwaoys thought th&t, whenb,
law, both Houses of Congress declared' the us 6f
State banks necessary to the ad(Iinlutratioi of the.reY-
enue, every argument against the constitutional powt
of Congress to create a Bank of the U1 i ed Statel w.s
thereby surrendered ; that it is plain that, if Conkrmia
has the powv'r to adopt bans for the particular. u.f
Lhe Government, it has the power tb create such insti-
Lutions also, if it deem' that mode the betL No Got-
ernment creates corporations for the" mere purpose of
giving capacity to an artificial body. It is the end de-
signed, the use to which it is to be applied', iiat decides
Lhe question, in general, whether the power exists to
create such bodies. If such a corporation asa bank be
necessary to the Government, if its use be indispensa-
ble, and if, on that ground, Congress may* take into its
service banks created by 'States, over whih it has no
control, and which are but poorly fitted for its pui poses,
how cani it be maintained that Congress may not create
a bank, by its own. authority, responsible to itself, aed
well suited to promote the ends designed by it? ?
Mi. President, when the' subject was Jast before ithe
Senate, f expressed my o.Q1 eso'ution& not to make
any movement towards the; establisbrnent of a National
Bank, till public opinion should call for it. In'that
resolution I still remain. But it gives me pleasure to
have the opportunity of presenting this petition, out of
respect to the signers ; and I have no objection cer-
ta'inly to meet with a proper opportunity bf-renewiag
the expression of my opinions on "the subjett, although
I know that so general has become the'impression hos-
Lile to such a4 institution, that any movbment hefe
would be vain till there is a change in public opiioin.
That there will be such a' changcre fully Teieve ; it
will be brought about, [ fthinkli, by experin.,,and.sp-
her reflection among fhe People; and' w'ken itsha6 l
come, thep-will be the proper time for a movement gn
the subject in the public councils. Not enour in eiv
york, but from here to Maine, 1 believe it is.now. t$e
opinion of five-sixths of the whole meicantileeom'rni-
nity, that a national bank is indispensahle to th' steady
regulation of the currency, and'the facility and chenp-
nesq of exchanges.: The board of trqde at, ew Yofk

j oruted that they had performed that duty -and receiVed
fobmnswer that he was deeply sensible of the impor-
nce of the trust reposd in dim, and would endeavor
so to6fulfil it to promote the best interests of the
country. :'
Mr. Ja)vis moved to postpone the pending orders for
Sthe purpose of taking up a bill to test by experiment an
invention to prevent the explosion of steamrn-boilers.-
The motion being agreed to, the bill was considered as
in Conmitte of the Whole, the blank left far the
a nmouut of the appropriation was filled with' the sum of
$6000 ; iad by filling the blank for the services of
members of the Board with $300.
Mr. Hendricks moved to amend by adding a new
section, appropriating $5000 for experiments with a
-,view to increase the security of the western steamers,
which, with the concurrence of the chairman of the
Committee on Commerce, was agreed to. The bill
was then ordered to a third reading.
On motion of Mr Webster, the &Senate reconsidered
the vote of the Senate rejecting the bill for anticipating
the payment of certain indemnities, and the bill was
recommitted to the Committee on Finance.
The bill making appropriations for the collection of
materials, the purchase of sites, and to commence the
constractiun of certain fortifications, and for other pur-
Sposes, being the next in order,
The bill was then reported without amendments,
and ordered to a third reading.
SATtURAY, FEll. 1-Mr. Grundy, from the Joint
Committee appointed to wait on Richard M. Johnson,
to notify him of his election to be Vice President of the
United Statea, reported a letter from Richard M.
Johnson, in which he expresses his gratitude, height-
ened by the fact that the decision ot the Senate has
been in conformity with the votes of a majority of the
States, and a moiety of the electoral*ollege. He then
apologizes for his inexperience as a presiding officer,
having never even temporarily presided over a legis-
lative body, solicits indulgence, aad promises impar-
tiality. ;,
Mr. Davis from the Committee on Commerce re-
ported a Bill to authorize the President of the U. S. to
cause a public vessel to cruise on the cost in the win-
ter season, for the relief of distressed navigators, which
was read and ordered to a second reading, and the re-
port was ordered to be printed.
The bill to cede to the new states the public lands
within their limits, on certain conditions, being taken
up on the question of its second reading,
Mr. Hubbard expressed a hope that the second read-
ing would not be pressed at this time, and asked for the
yeas and nays, which were ordered.
Mr. Webster then made a few remarks on the sub-
ject of this bill. He had been opposed to the land hill
which had passed, because of its form. He considered
that bill, as it had passed the Senate, to be a bill not to
arrest, but to establish monopoly. He considered the
final passage of that bill as doubtful; and even if it
passed, it was limited in its operation. It ought not,
therefore, to i considered of so much importance as to
'justify such an extraordinary and objectionable' a bill
as the present. He disputed the authority of Con-
gress to give away the public lands, any more than-to
give away the revenues from the custom houses, and
the houses therpaelves. 'The public domain is a com-
S mon property, to be sold to individual owners. Con-
gress had a right to improve this property by ,making
roads and eCanals. When disposed ot it should be sold
in the simplest form, so as qot to embarrass "the titles
'or interfere with the legislation of the states over the
lands within their limits. He then went into an ar-
gument on copflicting jurisdictions, which should be
avoided as much as possible by transferring the title of
.the United SLates to individuals.
In reference to the expediency of this bill he thought
it more full of prospective mischief and future trouble
than any bill he could remember. The states would be
annually counting for a change of the conditions ; and if
the one third ot the proceeds were not to be paid to the
United States as conditioned, what a new condition of
things would be introduced. He thought we were
going on too rapidly. He did not think this bill would
be advantageous to the new States, but that it would
be inconvenient, injurious and perplexing in its opera-
tion. He thought every attempt of Congress to limit
the sales of the lands produced a conflicting legislation
in the States. and he had doubts whether the United
States could affect the titles of lands after they had
olAd these lands ; looking at the inequality or the value
oflanduand the quantity of bad lands, which would
not sell while good lands are in the market, he had
never had objection to some graduation. Neither" did
he object to give the right of taxing the lands of the
States, if they wold, not abuse the power by exacting
enormous taxes from non residents, which he believed
voin-e could not constitutionally do, and the residue
would not be disposed .to-do. He reviewed the history
iOf pie-empdions, considered the effect they produced
out of Cungress as Weil within its wall. He would
htve no objection to .gJe prospective pre-emptions, or
rather to give donatioia of ha lqurarter section toany

offered in the case of Mr. Adams, had been adopted;

ot denunciation,and not because they differed with those
who voted in favor of its passage and who affirmed that
slaves hadito right to petition Congress. Both gentle-

Thursday, as follows:
WASHINGTON, Feb. 7th, 1837.
SIR In the Globe of the 6th inst. I find the report of
a speech made by you on the 4th upon the land bill,
which contains the following passages, viz:
"Was it not notorious that the President of the
United States himself had been connected with the
purchase of the public lands ? Yes, the "experiment"
(Mr. Calhoun delighted in the word) was the cause of
speculation in public lands, and if this bill should not
be passed, speculations could -not go on, and the price
of the public lands must consequently -be reduced.-
He contended that every man could .not hut see that it
would be utter ruin to those who had borrowed money
to speculate in lands, if the system was not to go on."
In a former part of your speech, as reported, you say,
"The speculation which a particular state of things
had given rise to, had been produced by those in
power. They had profited by that state of things;-
and should this bill be passed, it would only consulate
their wishes," &c. &c. &c. .
Knowing the liabilities of reporters to ,err in taking
down and writing out the speeches -of members of
SCongress, 1 have made inquiry in relation to the ac-
I ourracy of this report, and have been furnished with
certificates of gentlemen who heard you, affirming
that it is substantially correct.
You cannot but be aware, sir, that 'the imputations
which your language conveys are calculated, if believ-
ed, to destroy my character as a man, and that the
charge is one, which, if true, ought-to -produce my im-
peachment and punishment as a public officer. If 1
caused the removal of the deposites~for the base purpose
of enriching myself or my friends by any of the results
which might grow out of that measure, there is no
term ot reproach which I do not deserve, and no pun-
ishment known to the laws which ought not to be in-
flicted upon me. On the contrary, ifthe whole imps-
tation, both as to motive and fact,-be a fabrication and
a calumny, the punishment which belongs to me, if
guilty, is too mild for him who wilfully makes it.
I I am aware, sir, of the constitutional privilege under
which ihis imputation is east forth, and the immtvnity
which it Beeties. That pivilege it is la no degabbe my
purpose to violate, however g6sa and wicked may have
been the abwse of it. but I exercise only the common
right of every citizen, when I inform you, thoatthe im-
putations you have cast upon me are false in every par-
ticular, not having for the last ten years purchased any
public land, or had any ihtErest in suAh purchase. The
-whole charge, unless explained, must be considered
the offspriug.of a morbid iinagination or of sleepless
inalice. : ., : .

JUVENILE VAGRANCY.
In Boston are several hundred boys, from 6 to 16, who
Sare not in school, or any regular employment. Some
of them work occasionally in printing offices, or law-
yers' offices, sell penny papers, act as porters about
Srail road depots and taverns, or are employed in nine-
pin alleys and other places of immorality-others loiter
- about the wharves, lanes and streets, annoying descent
people, impudently hanging themselves on every pass-
ing vehicle (while those who cannot reach the carriage
themselves cry.out cut, cut behind," that their associ-
ates may receive the lash)-some are mostly employed
at picking chipsand gathering the half burnt coal that is
thrown into the streets-others are sent by their pa-
rents to beg cold victuals, &c. for half starved families.
None of these boys are idle. If not doing good, the
are learning evil.- If not preparing for a life of useful-
ness, they are fitting generally for a life of crime or de-
pendence. And who is in fault? Not the government
that has provided schools, (free to all,) and a House of
Reformation for juvenile offenders. Not the philan-
thropists and benevolent founders of the Farm School
and various Asylums.
The vagranit children that infest the city have pa-
rents-parents who are too wicked or too weak and in-
dulgent to exercise any proper restraint over their off-
spring. Many of these fathers and mothers are ex-
tremely ignorant themselves-they know nothing of
rational and intellectual enjoyment; they seek gratifi-
e4thion only in the indulgence of the animal appetites;
aid they hhve no thought that their children can have
any higher, nobler aim. :There are' opportunities
enough to place these poor children in good families,
under a kind and benign influence, and proper train-
ing ; mechanics qind t armQer Qf the beat character want
. them as apprentices. But their' 'parents 'will not let
them go. The parents have tome naturalaffection for
their offspring, but this afection is not guided by ju4g-
ment or discretion. It does not look at permanent ze-
sults-it looks` mot to the future well-being 6f the child.
Such parents are improvident 'in relation to every do-
mestic arrangement; in summer they spend all and
think not ot the coming winter ; in health they do not
care to lay; by for sickness ;-they five pom m" hand to
mouth'*-and are careless to their own and their chii-
dren's best good in future. In most cases the parents
are intemperate, and a great proportion are foreigners.
I have sild that the government is not in fault, that
it has done nobly by estaibishing4&ee schools and insti-
tutions for the benefit of all classes of children. But
knowing as 1-do that parents in many instances are to-
tally unfit to msm e their own children or even them-
selves, 1 would -ask can.: the government do nothing
; more ? JtI- true that individuals may.complain to he
police court of vagrant boys, but 'there are very ;few
thet are willing to incur the odiumth'of complainers and
informers. -Our respectable citizens do notlikhe to have'
their _names associated with the proceedings of the po-

cure the evil. .Let it be enaetedohat all ckildre, of health

deepest attention of a large and Orilliant audience. His
course, from opinions expressed thus far, will command
an unusual share, of popular favor.-Essex Register.

From the Arkansas State Gazette of the 3d ult. we
learn that the condition of the Indians now being trans-
ported to the west, is:really distressing. Thousands of
them are represented as wholly destitute of shoes or
any other covering for the feet, while very many are in
want of the necessary clothing for the protection of the
body. Leaving a Warm climate at a pleasant season of
the year, very little prepaxratiom was made by them for
withstanding the extreme cold to which they are now
exposed in a more northern latitude, and in this desti-
tute condition they have been hurried along over miery
or frozen roads until many have had their fieet frost bit-
ten, and others have been so, far worn down and ex-
hausted by constant marching as to be left behind in a
dying condition. They are moreover very poorly pro-
vided with the means of subsistence, and are often com-
pelled from -necessity to commit depredations among
the plantations along which they travel. From the gen-
eral scarcity of provisions and from the great numbers
of Indians passing .through the country, (there being
nearly 14 thousand removing westward) prices have
risen very high, and great difficulty is experienced in
procuring for them the most -necessary articles of food
at any .price. Corn is sold at $i and $1,50 per bafrr.
The supply is thought to be inadequate to the coasumR-
tion, anTd wonderful distress is anticipated among them
before the winter season is over. ,Mu6h of the suffering

the Government.- Thie method was to farm out the
removal of the Indians by contract, to individuals for so
muth per head, and the persons accepting the contracts
having no other object than to hasten them alofi as
rapidly as. possible in order that the job may be the more
profitable, are now hurrying the poor. uniorttiatex'ber
ings to their own destruction. When the Choctaws were
removed some year or so back, officers of the army were
appointedto-superintend their pd6sage,wbo hivingno in-
ducementto basten their movements adv&ncedwith-*em
.by easy and- gentle stages as rapidly as their condition
would permit. This is the plan which shoul4i have beeg
adopted now, insteadof intrusting the lives of a whole
nation to the, mercenary feelings and views of a few
rapacious government speculators, whose sole concern
is to complete the task as speedily as possible. th they
may reap the reward- of their labors. d,,.
Can any one wonderthat the wretched-lndians shouAld
be dissatisfied, or -that they should harbor feelings of
hatred and deadlyireveage against the white, when
such crueltieo re experienced at their.had4s They are
forced to forsake their homes, are cruelly .daggethc4 t-
sands of miles through regions thinly plated and
unprovided with the ncessary mream tffsubsistance,
and made to endure every har1dsip *nd privatibn that
it.s possible for man pto suffer, without the b e#:ofre-
4ress or satisfaction. They would be destitute of all the
feelings common to the race were they to bear with:
resignation and indifference all these afflictions. '"

attack, and if possible, capture them. Powell, it was
reported, was flying with his family, nd not more than,

posN to return immediately to Fort Armstrong, and
after sending expeditions into the country towards Vo-
liS, to proceed himself against Micanopy at the head
oft-he Ocklawaha. A part of his army had erected two
frets, and bridges over both branches of the Withlacoo-
thee. ""
Under date ofJan. 21, Gen. Jesup announces that
on the following morning lie should march for Hepapka,
near the -head of tihe Ocklewaha, where it was said Mi-
canopy, Junaper, Aligator and other chiefs had concen-
trated their forces. Lt. Col. Foster had overtaken a
pary of hostile 4ndians anddnegroes, of whom he had
killed two and captured eleven Indians and nine ne.
groes. The Indians were-represented as desirous o^
peace, and Lt. -ol. Foster nha" been directed to send
one of the prisoners tr invite them to come in.
The Jacksonville Courier of Jan 26, and an extra oi'
the 28th relates a number of details of Indian warfare
in the neighborhood of that place. .An Indian had
been captured by the Alabama troops, who said that lihe
belonged to a town of 100 indians, who wished to give
themselves up, and would have done so some time ago,
had they not feared the whites would kill them.
Important JfOm -Florida.-The Mobile Mercantile
Advertiser of February'2,says:
The steam boat Champion, Capt. Murray,'brings the
following intelligence, derived from passengers on board
the cutter Jefferson, atPersacola,fthreedays from Tampa
Bay. The intelligence is, that the celebrated Indian,
called Jumper, and the negro Abraham, have been cap-
tured.; and that Oseeola himilf barely made his escape,
with only five followers, in the direction of the south.
General Jesup' was making every effort for the capture
of the bold and persevering chief.
The sloop ofvsrWConcord, with Cowmodore Dallas
On board, was expected at'Pensacola in about a week.
The Vandalia had taken the place of the Concord at
Tampa.
'General -Bravo at Matamnoras.-The New Orleans
Echo of February 1st, says: by an arrival yesterday

Matamoras on the 8th ultimo, in advance of the troops
under his -comman!. When the vessel sailed, which
was the 22d, several detachments oftroops had come in,
and others to the number of 3,000 are expected. Quan-
tities of military stores had also been brought in, among
which weregmseen portable batteaux for crossing rivers,
&c. In fact; the material preparations for invasion seem
far morecomplete than beforeebutstill the great materiel
of all is said to be wanting, as- complaints were not sup-
pressed of no pay having been for some time received.
Thus the note of preparation for the invasion of Texas
is nmorthan sounded.

To the Honorabls Justices of the Court of Common Pleas, begun
and holden at Cambridge, in and for the CLunty of Middlesex,
on the second Monday of December, A.D. 1836.
r1 HE subscribers would respectfully represent, that there, is a
1 large and extensire tract of Swamp meadow and low lands
containing by estimation five hundred acres, lying and situated
partly in the town of Cambridge and partly in the towns of West
Cambridge and Watertown, in said county o(if Middlesex, com-
monly known as the Fresh Pond Meadows." That said swamp
meadows and low lands are wet and overflowed by the waters
running from Fresh Pond, Spy Pond and other small streams, and
by the flowing of the tide up Aylwife nrook, so called, to such an
extent and for such proportion of every year,as to render them soft
and miry, and almost wholly unproductive and worthless to the
owners thereof-that it is necessary and would be useful and ad-
vaittageous to the proprietors to drain said lands, as they might
thereby be easily converted into peat and grass meadows, and
rendered profitable and valuable to the owners, and evidently
beneficial to the public. That said lands may be drained at a
small expense by clearing out and removing obstructions in the
brooks and streams running through and from said lands, by cut-
ting artificial ditches, and by erecting one or more dams and gates
across said Aylwife. brook, so as to prevent the reflow of the tide
waters over said meadows. That the principal causes of faid
lands being overflowed and wet are the obstructions, natural and
artificial, existing in and along the brooks and streams passing
through and from the same, and the setting back of the tide as
aforesaid, and the proprietors have not been able to agree upon
the expediency or the mode and manner of draining and improving
said lands, nor have they the power to do so eflectually, as it will
be necessary to create dams and gates across said Aylwite brook,
on lands not belonging to said proprietors. Wherefore, the sub-
scribers, being the greater part in interest of the proprietors of said
swamp meadow and low lands, respectfully pray that this Honor-
ablT-Court will appoint three or more suitable persons, Commis-
sioners to cause said lands to be drained and improved as afore-
said. .AMOS HILL,and31 others.

manp.
This comprehensive and very copious Manual has been before
the public but a few months, and is already in use in tmnot of the
Colleges and Academies in New-England, and has been highly
approved wherever it has been examined.
The deimitims in this work are given with iiingi.lar precision
and learnadss, and.*iht be found to li pure Englisah, hiclh i itself
is no small reconmuiendation-they will also be tound to bj philo-
sophically arranged.
The length of everf vdwel is marked in tnrh word ; so that the
oubtble and expense ofa Oi-aatus are dispensed with.
The Oreek Sj noym is affixed to the most important 'words;
t1ls facilitating by comparison thecritical acquisition of both ilaa-
guages. A Zalin defnitiom is also often adjoined", which h adds
much to its value fur the mature schoiar.
I the matter of typography, it is believed to be the most accu-
rate work of its sine tiattras ever issued from th6r iAmerican pros,
and to be in every -respect worthy the patronage of the public.'-
