MISSOURI WHIG STATE CONVENTION.
The Whig State Convention of the State of
MISSOURI assembled at Jefferson on the 21st of
last month. Considering the time and occasion,
this was the largest assemblage ever held, and
combined as great an amount of the bone and
sinew, the really respectable portion of the pop-
ulation, as any meeting ever held, in the State.
Every thing went forward with the utmost har-
mony, and but one spirit and one feeling ap-
peared to animate the crowd. The following
are the nominations made for the next August
JOHN B. CLARK, Of Howard.
For Lieutenant Governor.
JOSEPH BOGY, of St. Genevieve.
THORNTON GRIMSLEY, of St. Louis.
WoODsON J. Moss, of Clay.
For Electors of President and Vice President.
SAMUEL C. OWENS, of Jackson.
PHILIP COLE, of Washington.
JOSEPH C. BROWN, of St. Louis.
STEPHEN CLEVER, of Rails.
For Delegates to the Whig National Convention.
URIEL WRIGHT, of Marion.
WM. N. CAMPBELL, of St. Charles.
LOGAN HUNTON, of Louis.
WM. H. RUSSELL, of Callaway.
WHIG NATIONAL CONVENTION.-The dele-
gates from the State of NEW HAMPSHIRE are as
George W. Nesmith,
Mark W. Peirce,
Henry S. Tudor,
A. G. Britton.
It is stated in one of the New York papers,
on the authority of gentlemen from Baltimore,
that there were Whig voters, actually register-
ed, who did not vote" at the late election in that
city, more than sufficient to have made the Whig
ticket triumphant. If this be so, all that we
have to say upon it is that those Whig gentle-
men have a great deal to reproach themselves
with. But is it true ?
Among the passengers arrived at New York
in the Great Western is the Baron de ROENNE,
Minister from PRUSSIA to the United States, who
has been on a visit to Europe, and whose return
his numerous friends in this country will be hap-
py to hear of. We notice it thus specially,
because his name was so travestied in the New
York list of passengers (copied into our last)
that it would be difficult for any one to recog-
nise it for his.
By the following paragraph, taken from one
of the late London papers, there seems to be no
reason to doubt that the Government of PRUSSIA
has consented to act as Mediator in the matters
yet in controversy between the UNITED STATES
and the Republic of MEXICO :
SMr. WHEATON, the American Minister at
Berlin, has brought to a successful termination
Sthe negotiations which have been so long pend-
ing respecting the mediation between the Uni-
ted States and the Republic of Mexico. The
King of Prussia at first hesitated to accept the
Mediation tendered to him by the two transat-
lantic republics, on account of the extreme
complexity and delicacy of the question in dis-
pute, (especially as growing out of the civil
war in Texas ;) but, some of these disputes
having been amicably adjusted between the
parties, his Majesty has at last consented to
name M. VON ROENNE, the Prussian Min-
ister in the United States, to decide as arbiter
in cases of any difference of opinion which
might arise between the members of the mixed
commission which is to examine the remaining
'claims of the two Governments or their citi-
Szens upon each other."
Sir LIONEL SMITH, late British Governor of
Jamaica, arrived at New York on Sunday in
H. B. M. brig Serpent.
The United States Gazette states the follow-
ing fact, which remarkably illustrates the in-
creased facility of communication between Eu-
rope and this country by the introduction into
use of steam-vessels as packet-ships: Capt. T.
HAYS left Philadelphia just six weeks ago, and
returned in the Great Western, having, in the in-
tervening time, visited London and spent fifteen
days with his friends in that city.
We learn that a majority of the banks of the
city and county of Philadelphia have determined
not to declare any dividends for the present, al-
though it is believed they are in as sound and
healthy a condition as any in the Union. The
desire is to conform as much as possible to

NEW YORK, NOVEMBER 6.
The rain yesterday afternoon, and during the
night, poured down in torrents, and Tammany,
for awhile, was tickled with the idea that the
Whigs would be drowned out, but to-day there
is a glorious sun, a bright sky, and whatever of
omen there is in the air is auspicious to the
The city is perfectly quiet. Party spirit is not
high, and there never was less wrangling at the
polls. There will not be so many votes polled
by nearly 5,000 as have been polled hitherto.
The new election law cuts off many illegal voters,
and there is a disposition among many on both
sides to let the Administration take the sub-
Treasury as the shortest way to a National Bank.
On Monday 15,044 votes were polled, and on
Tuesday 12,890, making in all 27,934. There is
a great falling off in the 1st Ward (the Ward on
the Battery) owing to a reckless and pertina-
cious system of challenging adopted by the Tam-
many People for the sole purpose of shutting out
the Whig voters. A system of retaliation has
been adopted up town, which makes voting very
slow and very tedious. There will be a great
many,whose right to vote is unquestionable, who
will not be able to get their votes into the bal-
The election to-day has engrossed the usual
attention given to business in Wall street.
Stocks are a little lower. Money affairs are in
statu quo. Produce is arriving from the West
in great quantities.
The election news all along the Hudson, if
reports can be depended upon, is highly favora-
ble to the Whigs. The %Whigs in Albany are
in the highest spirits. Letters from Duchess
are very encouraging. Oneida county promises
well. It is very certain that in the contested
districts the Whigs are wide awake. The suf-
fering that has benumbed the city has not thus
made the interior torpid. Enough will be known
by the rising of the sun to-morrow to settle the
question, whether or not Mr. VAN BUREN can
carry his own State.
We regiet to learn that our much-respected fellow-citi-
zen, JAMES L. EDWARDS, met with a very serious accident
on Monday last, at the depot of the Philadelphia and
Trenton Railroad, being on his way to Trenton, as we
understand. How the accident occurred, we have not
learnt; but it is understood that the fingers of his left hand
were crushed, and the flesh of one of his thighs somewhat
lacerated. Mr. E. will be remembered by our readers as filling
with high reputation the responsible office of Commission-
er of Pensions.
The Alexandria Gazette of yesterday says: We have
had, for the last two or three days, very high tides. On
Tuesday evening the tide came up in King street above
Union street, and within a few inches of running in and
flooding the lower floors of the stores on the wharves be-
tween King and Prince streets."
COUNT DUMAS'S MEMOIRS.-Messrs. Lea & Blanchard
have just published the memoirs of his own time, includ-
ing the Revolution, the Empire, and the Restoration, by
Lieut. General Count MATHIEU DUMAS. They occupy two
neat volumes, possess intense interest, and convey not a
little instruction. Those portions of the work, in which
scenes in this country are alluded to, and in which General
LAFAYETTE took a conspicuous part, will, in an especial
manner, recommend themselves to the American reader.
The details are given as a faithful narrative of events in
which the author had some share.--Pa. Inquirer.
PRINTINGBY THE YARD.-The Philadelphia North Amer-
ican of yesterday notices the receipt of a roll of printed
paper, seventy feet in length-from a printing office now
in operation at Hanover, N. J. This enormous sheet
contains eight books of 160 pages each! The register
is stated to be good, and the impression clear. The North
American says of this establishment, that the rags are
taken in at one door and stitched books delivered at an-
other, at the rate of some thousands of volumes per day.
The sheet received is printed on both sides with the Spell-
ing Book. What promise for the rising generation !
NEW YORK, Nov. 5.
SECOND DEIAVERY.-A large brown paper package
which, being directed to a passenger, had been left on
board the Great Western, but not called for, was yester-
day opened for the purpose of ascertaining what ought to
be done with the contents. Within the brown paper was
found a brown bag, and in the bag about THREE HUNDRED
LETTERS, addressed to mercantile houses here and through-
out the country. The people in London who wrote the
letters can possibly unravel the mystery. We suppose we
could guess right ourselves; but it is not exactly a subject
to try experiments upon, and so we just publish this for the
" benefit of whomever it may concern."-Jour. of Comm.
SOMNAMBULISM.-The following most extraordinary case
of somnambulism has been communicated to us by the patient
him-elf, whose credibility we have no reason to question,
though it may tax pretty severely the credulity of our
readers. On the evening of Thursday a commercial trav-
eller, having taken up his abode for the night (as he sup-
posed, though it turned otherwise) in Wallace's Inn,
Letham, about midnight, as he imagines, in a fit of som-
nambulism, leaped over a second floor window, and imme
diately took to his travels through the fields, in no more
ample garb than that in which he had gone to sleep. He
proceeded on and on, as if impelled by some overruling
power, conscious, in a considerable measure, of what was
passing around him, but totally unable to resist his fate:
The first conspicuous object he feels assured of having
passed is the Hopetoun Monument, on the top of Mount-
hill, about two miles from where he started. About two
miles further he is conscious of having forded a consider-
able stream, he thinks the Eden, near Russel-mill, where
he had been on business beforehand; and his active pow-
ers of action only returned to him as he found himself
near Melvill gates, three miles further on, just about day-
break. He here found himself covered with mud and mire,
By the table and comments, which we extract
from the New Jersey State Journal, it will be
seen that the last refuge of locofocoism in New
Jersey-the claim that, although beaten by a
large majority in both branches of the Legisla-
ture, it still has a numerical majority in the ag-
gregate vote of the State-is utterly annihilated.
More than nine thousand voters did not at-
tend the polls last month-equal to one-sixth of
the whole vote of the State-and the aggregate
majority obtained by locofocoism falls short, by
thousands, of the Whig vote of last year.
Such decisive facts as these tables and the
complexion of the State Legislature exhibit can-
not be without strong influence on the decision
in Congress respecting the contested seats.

This table shows that the whole number of votes poll-
ed in this State at the last election was nine thousand, or
about one-sixth less than the number of votes at the Con-
gressional election. It shows, also, that the Van Buren
vote in 1839, instead of outnumbering the Whig vote in
the State, actually Tell below it more than three thousand
five hundred votes.
It is evident, therefore, both that the last election is no
criterion of the strength of parties in a general election, as
a very large part of those accustomed to vote did not vote;
and that it affords no evidence whatever of a Van Buren
majority. The number of Van Buren votes polled may
have exceeded the number of Whig votes, for aught we
know; but the figures below give a very clear explanation
of the reason. If, of the nine thousand non voters, one-
half, or 4,500, had been of the Van Buren party, then the
result would have shown the strength of parties. But it
seems that the Van Buren vote only fell off 3,500, leav-
ing the number of Whig non-voters 5,500, showing at once
a difference of 2,000, and explaining, clearly, the reason
why the Van Buren men obtained, as we suppose they
did, a majority.
Before the election the Van Buren party refused to refer
to the People, although requested to do so by the Whigs.
Their presses contended that it was a mere State elec-
tion." Well, the Whigs supposed it so. They went into
it as a State election. They made no ticket in Sussex,
Warren, or Hunterdon ; and very much relaxed their ex-
ertions in Essex, Gloucester, Burlington, and Cape May.
They directed their efforts enly towards vanquishing their
opponents and carrying the State. They succeeded tri-
umphantly, and with increased success. Vain is it now
for the Van Buren party to retract their own deliberate
avowals-to eat their own words, and insist that it is not
"a mere State election ;" and attempt to break their fall,
and bolster up the claims of their Congressional claimants,
by appealing to a tribunal to which they had said, under
their own signatures, they would not appeal.
The truth is simply this: the Congressional election
proved that parties in New Jersey were nearly balanced;
the late State election was no criterion of the strength of
parties in a popular vote; and what will be the event of
the next election depends upon events yet to transpire, the
most important of which will be the determination of the
Wlig National Convention upon the nomination of a can-
didate for the Presidency.
A RACING CHALLENGE.
BOSTON AND WAGNER.-We find in the New
York Spirit of the Times the following challenge
from the owner of Boston :
Boston's challenge to Wagner, or to the United States,
from $15,000 to $30,000 a side !
NEW YORK, Nov. 1, 1839.
To the Editor of the Spirit of the Times. Sir: In the
last number of your paper I have noticed a communication
signed C," (purporting to be an extract from a Louis-
ville, Ky. paper,) in which the anonymous writer offers to
run Wagner against Grey Eagle, or any other horse in
the United States, four mile heats, for $10,000, or any
amount above that sum." I have since understood that
Mr. Campbell, the owner of Wagner, has avowed himself
the author of the communication. The proposition has,
therefore, now assumed a tangible shape.
In reply, I, the owner of BOSTON, will run him against
WAGNER, or any other horse in the United States, four
mile heats, spring of 1840, for not less than $15,000, nor
more than $30,000-one-third of the same forfeit-over any
equal middle course to be agreed on by the parties. This
proposition remains open until the first of January next, re-
serving to all parties the privileges that may arise from ac-
cidents before acceptance. By that time, if not accepted,
Boston will be advertised to stand at the stable of Colonel
Johnson, in Chesterfield county, Va.
Any acceptance to be made by letter, directed through
the Spirit of the Times," or to me, at Washington City.

The annual and quarterly returns of the revenue, up to
the 10th of October, show an increase over those of 1838
of 1,441,132 upon the year, and of 240,699 upon the
quarter. The amount in 1836 was 44,460,809; that in
1839, 44,086,681. It is remarked, however, that the ex-
penditure of 1839 must greatly exceed that of 1836; and
that the financial condition of the country is more discour-
aging than at any time since the peace.

on the ground that the drain of gold is unquestionably
caused, not by the dealings in foreign securities, but by the
unavoidable importation of foreign grain.

FROM THE LONDON HERALD OF OCTOBER 4.
The money market, which was so much agitated yester-
day, in consequence of the rumors in circulation respecting
the affairs of the United States Bank and Mr. Jaudon, has
become a great deal easier to-day, and much, also, of the
anxiety which prevailed yesterday has abated, in conse-
quence of the favorable turn which the affairs of that great
establishment have now taken. For the sake of our com-
mercial and monetary community, as well as the same class-
es in the United States, we are happy to be enabled to
state, on authority that cannot be denied, that all the press-
ing difficulties which so apparently surrounded Mr. Jau-
don, the agent of the United States Bank, yesterday, and
which threatened also the stability of our money markets,
are now decidedly removed, at any rate for some time to
Mr. Jaudon has taken up all his acceptance for the
United States Bank which are due, and the post bonds of
the same bank have been paid as far as they have been pre-
sented, and the rest provided for. It appears that Mr. Jau-
don has been enabled to achieve this without at all availing
himself of the promised aid of the Bank of England. We
have also reason to know that Mr. Jaudon's advices by
way of Havre give him pretty good assurance that he will
receive a heavy remittance by the Great Western ; in that
case he will not have occasion for it.
FROM THE SAME OF OCTOBER 5.
The commercial public will be gratified to learn that all
the liabilities of'the United S:ates Bank have been met
and adjusted by Mr. Jaudon, the agent of that influential
establishment. One, therefore, of the disturbing influences
which have lately been expending their force on our mo-
ney market is suspended ; and we trust that certain othei
indications of panic and of danger will, in like manner,
pass away, without leaving fatal effects behind them. All
parties agree in ascribing to Mr. Jaudon the highest degree
of merit in reference to his conduct during the late very
trying emergency. Let us hope that our capitalists will
hereafter approve themselves somewhat less prompt than
they have recently been in exchanging their solid wealth
for all sorts of foreign securities; and let us hope, on the
other hand, that the speculators of America will exhibit a
little more prudence, and, it may be, a little more conscien-
ciousness, than to attempt, hereafter, to engross immense
masses of raw produce, for the purpose of keeping it un-
duly out of the European market!"
FROM THE LONDON TIMES OF OCTOBER 18.
It has been affirmed by parties in the city who have op-
portunities of noticing the amount of Exchequer bills afloat,
and the purpose for which they are issued, that not less
than 2,500,000 has been advanced toward the erection of
various union work-houses formed under the new poor liw
in different parts of the country. At the outset of this un-
popular and odious measure the estimate was, that not more
than 800 000 would be required from the Government in
aid of such buildings. The history of these and other ad-
vances for public works, with a list of the uncertain debts,
and of the losses actually incurred, should it ever be fairly
brought to light, will form one of the most curious and in-
structive portions of the financial admissions of the pre-
THE ARCHIMEDES STEAMER.-On Monday morning the
three-masted steam-schooner Archimedes, fitted up anew
for the purpose of demonstrating the advantages of the new
Archimedes screw as a propeller, proceeded down the river
from London bridge, on an experimental trip. The wea-
ther was most favorable, and a great number of amateurs,
scientific and practical, availed themselves of the liberal in-
and tide, the Archimedes performed the mile in nine mi-
nutes and five seconds. Turned round (which was done
with the greatest facility, and in a very small circle) and
steaming up the river, with wind and tide, the same mile
was performed in four minutes and a half. A third expe-
riment down the river, against wind and tide, required nine
minutes and fifty-two seconds. The engine was, during
these trials, making between 22 and 23 strokes per minute,
each of which produced 5J revolutions of the propelling
screw, working in the dead-wood" of the vessel, immedi-
ately in front of the stern-post. The log, thrown at the
turn of the tide, indicated a rate of nine knots. The most
unqualified satisfaction was expressed by all on board at
It is very confidently alleged that a severance of policy
has taken place between the cabinets of France and Eng-
land, with regard to the affairs of Turkey and Egypt.
It was reported in Paris that passports had been given
to Don Carlos. at his own request, for Styria, where he
intended to establish his permanent residence. Also, that
a marriage was on the tapis between the Duke of Nemours
and a sister of the Duke of Leuchtenberg, who married
the daughter of the Emperor of Russia.
Monsieur Blanqui, who was deeply implicated in the
Paris riots of May, was arrested in that city on the night
of October 14, just as he was taking his seat upon the dili-
gence. He had recently returned from London, whither
he fled after the explosion in May. It is alleged that he
was the prime mover in that affair, and the principal origi-
nator of the secret societies with which it was connected.

have been ordered to return immediately to the port of
The Duke of Orleans had arrived at Algiers, and
was making a progress of inspection through the colony.
The negotiations for a Spanish loan in Paris made but
little progress, the Rothschilds having refused to take any
part in them without guaranties, which the Spanish Go-
vernment did not seem inclined to give. Perhaps the ru-
mor of a marriage between one of the French princes and
,ueen Isabel was got up to help these negotiations.
M. Pontois is said to have been raised to the peerage on
his appointment to the embassy at Constantinople.
One of the Paris journals says that M. de Saligny, now
Secretary of Legation at Washington, has been appointed
Minister to the Republic of Texas.
The French squadron blockading the port of Buenos
Ayres was to be reinforced, and vigorous measures were
to be adopted for bringing that affair to a conclusion.
The negotiations for a treaty of commerce between
France and England had been suspended.
The Cortes had voted in favor of granting to the Bis-
cayans the fueros promised them by Espartero. This de-
termination had caused great rejoicings at Madrid, as it
was considered a pledge for the restoration of tranquillity.
At the date of the latest advices the forces of Espartero
and Cabrera had not yet come in conflict. The former ar-
rived at Saragossa on the 5th at the head of 26,000 men,
and was received with the greatest enthusiasm. Cabrera
was fortifying himself in the Sierra of Cantavieja. His force
amounted to about 20,000 men.
A report had been circulated that Don Carlos had writ-
ten to Cabrera, enjoining him to lay down his arms and
submit; but this was contradicted by a letter from the Mar-
quis of Labrador, who affirms also that Don Carlos will
never abandon his claims to the throne.
The Spanish Government had proclaimed a general
amnesty to all who have submitted or shall submit to the
Don Sebastian, the nephew of Don Carlos, had left
Bourges for Sardinia; but on his arrival at the frontier of
that kingdom the authorities would not allow him to pass
without an order from the capital.
Permission had been received at Bordeaux, from Madrid
for all Spanish officers, except generals and colonels, to re-
turn into Spain, and avail themselves of the amnesty.
TURKEY AND EGYPT.
Nothing decisive has yet taken place in the affairs of
these two Powers; and the accounts are so vague and con-
tradictory that it is impossible to arrive at any definite con-.
clusion as to their actual position. A letter from Turkey,
in one of the Paris papers, thus states the situation of the
What do the Russians want ? To invade the Ottoman
Empire. What do the English want? To hinder the in-
vasion and to overthrow the Egyptian power. The Aus-
trians are of the same opinion. And what do the French
want? To maintain the Egyptian power, to defend the
Ottoman Empire, and to prevent any collision. Now Rus-
sia tends to invade the Ottoman Empire, but France, Eng-
land, and Austria oppose this. Austria and England de-
sire the destruction of the Egyptian power; but Russia
and France oppose this plan. Hence there results such a
great divergency of conflicting interests that a collision is
impossible. What then is done? The parties make a
show of force, and try which can out-wit the other. In
the end, after having surveyed each other from head to
foot, the Powers will retire. Such will be, in the nineteenth
century, the termination of the grand affair of the Levant."
Perhaps this is about as near the truth as any thing we

The most conflicting accounts are published respecting

that he has succeeded in convincing Lord Palmerston of
the necessity of occupying Constantinople with a Russian
army; and another that his mission has failed, and that his
proposals to the British Government have been rejected.
The Pacha had been seriously ill, but had recovered.
One letter, however, says that his illness was pretended,
and that the object of the ruse was to evade giving an an-

TWELFTH ANNUAL FAIR OF THE AMERI-
FROM THE NEW YORK GAZETTE.
SWe intimated when we last referred to the subject of
this celebration that we probably should resume it again.
The addresses alone of the 12th Annual Fair, if every thing
else relating to the American Institute were obliterated,
would confer upon it durable fame. The address of Lieut.
Governor BRADISH, on behalf of the Court of Errors, when
in a body they visited this fair, was a beautiful specimen of
extemporaneous oratory. The effects, as portrayed by hii,
of similar societies established in France, afforded matter
of great encouragement for the members of this society to
persevere. The eulogium on the perseverance of the build-
ers-up of the American Institute was pointedly but deli-
cately expressed, and caused a deep sensation.
The Anniversary Address of the Honorable SAMUEL L.
SOUTHARD, a few evenings after, exceeded the expectations
of his most ardent admirers. He came forth in the fulness
of his strength. The consequences of an abandonment of
the cordial principles of protection to home industry were
traced with an accuracy, clearness, and cogency that con-
vinced many, who never before were satisfied, that we must
retrace our steps, or be subjected to never-ending embar-
rassments. His ideas have spread through our community.
The arguments used by him on that occasion we have
heard quoted over and over again. And some of our most
inveterate free-trade advocates begin to believe that per-
haps we have imparted a little too much, and they begin to
think there is some reason in those who despite a fair reci-
procity from foreign nations with whom we trade.
The address of Mr. CLARKE, late member of the Assem-
bly from Jefferson county, was full of pertinent facts and sa-
gacious and sound observations, rendered entertaining by
his many happy hits, which he every now and then brought
forth with his accustomed ease and aptitude.
But what we had particularly in'our mind when we gave
our readers to understand we should allude to this anni-
versary Fair again, was the closing address of the Presi-
dent, Gen. TALLMADGE.
The effect of increasing the amount of imported articles,
by lessening or repealing the duties on such articles, was
illustrated by reference to our Treasury reports. In 1833,
Congress passed a law, by which the list of duty-free arti-
cles was extended. It embraced some few articles of linen,
worsted goods, and silks generally. Would not this natu-
rally increase the importations of this class of articles?
And would it not be well for our merchants to endeavor to
ascertain how much ? If, for instance, they will look after
silk, they will find their importations have doubled.
When the impediment of duties which obstruct or keep
back importations is entirely taken away, these goods pour
in upon us; the balance of trade turns against us; specie
is wanted; the banks withhold discounts; merchants are
embarrassed, because their usual bank facilities are cut off;
remittances fail, because, all over the country, bank paper
(our ordinary money) has become scarce; bankruptcies en-
sue. Now we ask the merchants to reflect and see whe-
ther these consequences are not inevitable; and, although
he has received and sold more goods than usual, whether
his paying customers have not diminished, and whether
his situation has not come to this, that he owes more and
has less to pay than when he bought and sold fewer goods.
If this is so, then it surely will be wisdom for him to see
how much our imports have increased on the whole amount
of imports since the reduction referred to above, in 1833.
In order that he may have a view of the effect, we will
give the imports of each year for five years immediately
preceding 1833, and then for five years immediately follow-
ing 1833, from the Treasury reports.
The whole imports of articles free of duties into the U.
States for five years preceding 1833:
1830, -. 12,746,245
Whole amount for five years, 64,636,800
The whole imports of articles free of duties into the
United States for five years subsequent to 1833:
Whole amount for five years, 368,500,130
The difference between the first five years and the last
is three hundred and three million eight hundred and
sixty-three thousand three hundred and thirty dollars; or,
in other words, we imported so much more of duty free
articles the five years immediately following 1833 (the year
the law passed increasing the number of duty free articles)
than we did the five years before.
Those who advocate the admission of articles'from for-
eign countries free of duties may perhaps say that our fur-
eign trade generally had increased greatly the last five
years, and that the duty free articles were only in propor-
tion, or nearly so. If this should be said, the following
will show how much truth there is in the suggestion:
The whole imports, including the duty free articles
and those paying duty, amounted for the last five
years to $717,615,749
For the last five years they amounted to 498,099,848
The increase of the last five years over the first
is therefore $379,515,901
Deduc: the increase of imports of duty free arti-
cles of the last five years and the first five years,
viz. 303 863,330
And it will be found to be only $65,652,571
Unless arithmetic is a liar, the proportional increase of
imports on the duty free articles for the last five years is
nearly five to one over the increase of the imports of arti-
cles which paid duty. Cannot the merchant who is ordi-
narily keen to his own interest see that, if we had continu-
ed onil our importations of duty free articles, increasing mo-
derately, as we did before the law of 1833, viz. less than
two millions in five years, that we should have been inde-
pendent of England, and, whether the Bank of England
stopped payment or not, we should have been prosperous
We are aware of an allowance to be made in this tabular
view for the transfer of articles from the duty paying list to
the duty free list, by the law of 1838, but this can make
but a small part of three hundred and three millions of dol-
lars, and that difference would have been, as we believe,
fully balanced by our increased exports, as we think we
could show if our time would permit.
Again, the law of 1833, in its effects on other than the
duty free articles, was calculated to increase our imports,
by lessening the duties on that class of articles embraced in
the general list of articles paying duties.
What infatuation, every thinking merchant must ask,
induced our members in Congress to consent to such a
deadly act ? We answer, the preservation ot that precious
instrument-the Constitution. Assent, said the leaders of
the South, or we will blow the blast of disunion. It was
this gained unwilling assent, and it was called the com-
Our banks all around are closed or closing. Bankruptcy,
distress, and ruin are staring in the face long established
firms that have stood the commercial storms of many event-
ful years. And all classes are dismayed; and what is the
cure proposed? Abolish our paper currency-break down
our banks, and prostrate all credit-rely on metallic mo-
ney alone! Then you will have money with a vengeance.
And this fearful change is now to be made, when England
holds against us two hundred millions of our stocks, and
some forty or fifty millions of circulating commercial debts,
all of which latter debts she can draw for in a few days.
Every specie dollar, and all the parts of dollars, and every
metallic cent in this wide country, brought into one great
heap, would not liquidate one-third of this amount. Lunacy

We inserted, from the Albany Journal, some
five or six weeks ago, as an interesting Revolu-
tionary relic, a copy of the declaration and arti-
cles of association adopted and signed by the
members of the several Revolutionary Commit-
tees in the city and county of Albany, on the
24th of [January on the face of the copy, but it
should be] June, 1774. The publication of that
document induced our worthy fellow-townsman,
PETER FORCE, Esq. to furnish us, from his great
collection of Revolutionary and ante-Revolu-
tionary manuscripts, with copies of the subjoin-
ed documents, relating to the same period, the-
atre, and movements to which the Albany docu-
ment belongs, and which are interesting as ex-
hibiting the temper of the time and the incipi-
ent steps taken by the colonists of New York
to resist the encroachments of the mother coun-
try on their rights and liberties.

The Committee having taken into consideration the com-
motions occasioned by the sanguinary measures pursued
by the British Ministry, and that the powers with which
this Committee is invested respect only the Association, [of
the Continental Congress,] are unanimously of opinion,
That a new committee be elected by the freeholders and
freemen of this city and county, for the present unhappy
exigency of affairs, as well as observing the conduct of all
persons touching the Association; that the said committee
consist of one hundred persons; that thirty-three be a quo-
rum, and that they dissolve themselves within a fortnight
next after the end of the next session of the Continental Con-
gress. And, that the sense of the freemen and freeholders of
this city and county may be better procured and ascertained,
the Committee are further unanimously of opinion that the
polls be taken, on Friday morning next, at 9 o'clock, at
the usual places of election in each ward, under the in-
spection of the two vestry-men of each ward and two ol
this Committee, or any two of the four; and that, at the
said elections, the votes of the freemen and freeholders be
taken on the following questions, viz. Whether such new
committee shall be constituted and, if yea, of whom it
And this Committee is further unanimously of opinion,
That, at the present alarming juncture, it is highly advi-
sable that a Provincial Congress be immediately summon-
ed; and that it be recommended to the-freeholders and free-
men of this city and county to choose, at the same time
that they vote for the new committee aforesaid, twenty
deputies to represent them at the said Congress; and that
a letter be forthwith prepared and dispatched to all th,
counties, requesting them to unite with us in forming a
Provincial Congress, and to appoint their deputies without
delay, to meet at New York on Monday, the 22d of May
By order of the Committee.
ISAAC LOW, Chairman.
[There was no election on Friday. Some of the causes
which tended to prevent an election are referred to in the
following address, which was adopted by the Committee on
To the Freeholders and Freemen of the City and County of
We regret, gentlemen, the necessity we are under of ad-
dressing you upon this occasion, and perceive with anxiety
the disorder and confusion into which this city has been
From cool and temperate counsels only good conse-
quences may be expected; nor can union (so essential to
the success of our cause) be preserved, unless every mem-
ber of society will consent to be governed by the sense of
the majority, and join in having that sense fairly and can-
Conscious that the powers you conferred upon us were
not adequate to the present exigency of affairs, we were
unanimously of opinion that another committee should be
appointed ; and, well knowing that questions of the high-
est moment and the last importance would come under their
consideration, and call for their determination, we thought
it most advisable that it should consist of a large number,
in order that, by enlisting many of weight and conse-
quence in all public measures, they might meet with the
more advocates, receive less opposition, and be attended
with more certain results.
The names of one hundred persons were mentioned by
this Committee; you were left at liberty to approve or re-
ject them, and appoint others in their room; and, that your
sense might be the better taken, polls in each ward were
directed to be opened. What could be more fair 1
By all means, gentlemen, let us avoid divisions, and, in-
stead of cherishing a spirit of animosity against one an-
other, let us join in forwarding a reconciliation of all par-
ties, and thereby strengthen the general cause.
Many, no doubt, have become objects of distrust and
suspicion, and perhaps not without reason. You have
now an opportunity of trying them. It surely never can
be good policy to put it out of their power to join us heart-
ily. It is time enough to reject them when they refuse us
their aid. In short, gentlemen, consider that our contest is
for liberty, and therefore we should be extremely cautious
how we permit our struggles to hurry us into acts of vio-
lence and extravagance inconsistent with freedom.
Permit us to entreat you to consider these matters seri-
ously, and act with temper as well as firmness; and by all
means join in the appointment of some committee to whom
you may resort for counsel, and who may rescue you from
tumult, anarchy, and confusion.
We take the liberty, therefore, of recommending it to
you, to go to the usual places of election in each of your
wards, on Monday next, at 9 o'clock in the morning, and
then and there give your votes for a committee of one hun-
hundred, to consist of such persons as you may consider
the most worthy of confidence. and most canahbl of the nr-

COMMITTEE CHAMBER, NEW YORK,
Friday, April 28, 1775.
GENTLEMEN: The distressed and alarming situation of
our country, occasioned by the sanguinary measures adopt-
ed by the British Ministry, (to enforce which the sword
has been actually drawn against our brethren in the Mas-
sachusetts,) threatening to involve this continent in all the
horrors of a civil war, obliges us to call for the united aid
and council of the Colony at this dangerous crisis.
Most of the deputies who composed the late Provincial
Congress, held in this city, (on the 20th, 21st and 22d of
this month,) were only vested with powers to choose dele-
gates to represent the Province at the next Continental
Congress, and the Convention having executed that trust
dissolved themselves. It is therefore thought advisable by
this Committee that a Provincial Congress be immediately
summoned to deliberate upon, and, from time to time, to
direct, such measures as may be expedient for our common
We persuade ourselves that no arguments can now be
wanting to evince the necessity of a perfect union; and
we know of no method in which the united sense of the
People of the Province can be collected but by the one
proposed. We, therefore, entreat your county heartily to
unite in the choice of proper persons to represent them at
a Provincial Congress, to be held in this city on the 22d
of May next. Twenty deputies are proposed for this city,
and in order to give the greater weight and influence to the
councils of the Congress, we could wish the number of
deputies from the counties may be considerable.
We can assure you that the appointment of a Provincial
Congress, approved of by the inhabitants of this city in
general, is the most proper and salutary measure that can
be adopted in the present melancholy state of this Conti-
nent; and we shall be happy to find that our brethren in
the different counties concur with us in opinion.
By order of the Committee.
ISAAC LOW, Chairman.
NEW YORK, MONDAY, MAY 1, 1775.
The following ASSOCIATION was set on foot here last
Saturday, (April 29th,) and on that day it was signed by
above one thousand of our principal inhabitants. It is to
be transmitted to all the counties in the Province, where,
we make no doubt, it will be signed by all ranks of people:
Persuaded that the salvation of the rights and liberties
of America depends, under God, on the firm union of its
inhabitants, in a vigorous prosecution of the measures ne-
cessary for its safety, and convinced of the necessity of
preventing the anarchy and confusion which attend a dis-
solution of the powers of Government: We, the freemen,
freeholders, and inhabitants of the city and county of New
York, being greatly alarmed at the avowed design of the
Ministry to raise a revenue in America, and shocked at
the bloody scene now acting in the Massachusetts bay, do,
in the most solemn manner, resolve never to become slaves;
and do associate under all the ties of religion, honor, and
love to our country, to adopt, and endeavor to carry into
execution, whatever measures may be recommended by the
Continental Congress, or resolved upon by our Provincial
Convention, for the purpose of preserving our Constitu-
tion, and opposing the execution of the several arbitrary
and oppressive acts of the British Parliament, until a re-
conciliation between Great Britain and America, qn con-
stitutional principles, (which we most ardently desire,)
can be obtained; and that we will, in all things, follow the
advice of our General Committee, respecting the purposes
aforesaid, the preservation of peace and good order, and
the safety of individuals and private property.
Dated in New York, April and May, 1775.
NEW YORK, MONDAY, MAY 1, 1775.

vation of the 26th of April, 1775, polls were opened in the

ported by the committee appointed for that purpose, recom-
mending the choosing of the committees and sub-commit-

was approved, agreed to, and resolved, and is in the follow-
ing words, to wit:
Resolved, That it be recommended, and it is accordingly
hereby recommended, to all the counties in this Colony
(who have not already done it) to appoint county commit-
tees, and also sub-committ'ees, for their respective town-
ships, precincts, and districts, without delay, in order to
carry into execution the resolutions of the Continental and
this Provincial Congress. And that it is also recommend-
ed to every inhabitant of this Colony who has hitherto ne-
glected to sign the General Association to do it with all con-
venient speed. And, for these purposes, that the commit-
tees in the respective counties in which committees have
been formed, do tender the said Association to every inhab-
itant within the several districts in each county; and that
such persons, in those counties or districts who have
not appointed committees, as shall be appointed by the
members of this Congress representing such counties
and districts respectively, do make such tender as aforesaid
in such counties and districts respectively; and that the
said committees and persons respectively do return the said
ASSOCIATtON, and the names of those who shall neglect or re-
fuse to sign the same, to this Congress, by the fifteenth day
of July next, or sooner, if possible.
The draught of a letter to attend the said resolution, and
recommending to carry the measures therein mentioned in-
to execution was also read, amended, and approved of, and
is the words following, to wit:
NEW YORK, MAY 24, 1775.
GENTLEMEN: You will see by the enclosed resolution of
this Congress, that it is recommended to such of the coun-
ties as have not already formed committees to do it with-
out delay; and such of the inhabitants of this Colony
as have hitherto neglected to sign the General Association
to do it, so as to enable you to make a return within the time
limited in the resolution.
As the execution of this resolve is committed to your
care, we request you to use your best endeavors to see that
this recommendation be complied with. It may neverthe-
less be proper to inform you that it is the sense of this
Congress that no coercive steps ought to be used to induce
any person to sign the Association. The propriety of the
measure, the example of the other counties, and the neces-
sity of maintain a perfect union in every part of this Col-
ony, it is presumed, are sufficient reasons to induce the in-
habitants of your county to comply with this requisition.
Ordered, That five hundred copies of the said resolve
and of the said letter be printed, and that as many copies
of the said letter as may be necessary be signed by the
President, and delivered, with the copies of the said resolve,
to the members of this Congress to be by them directed.
In compliance with the order of the Provincial Congress
of the 26th of May the ASSOCIATION was signed by the fol-
lowing members :

CONCLUSION OF NICHOLAS NICKLEBY.
We find in the Philadelphia National Gazette
of yesterday an article, copied from a late Eng-
lish paper, giving an extract from the conclud-
ing chapters of NIC iLAS NICKLEBY." We
copy it below, and may safely adopt the com-
mendation of the English paper that it is one
of the most powerful passages to be found in the
writings of Mr. DICKENS. The concluding
numbers of Nicholas Nickleby have not yet
been published in this country, and the extracts
we give below will serve to gratify in part the
curiosity of those who have perused the num-
bers already published.-Balt. Pat.
FROM TIE NATIONAL GAZETTE.
The pleasant and prosperous career of Nicholas Nickle-
by is here brought to a close. We reserve for our next
number a view of the entire story, and of its claims to
take rank among our lasting works of English fiction ; but
we cannot meanwhile refuse ourselves the gratification
of transferring to our pages the following extract, for
which we shall not then have space, and than which we
have never quoted any thing finer from the writings of
Mr. Dickens. It is the consummation of a series of mis-
eries and failures that, through the latter chapters, fall
heavily on the head of the usurer, Ralph Nickleby. He
has at length discovered that Smike, tortured to death by his
relentless persecution, is his own son. Beyond this he
will endure no more. He makes one last appointment, and
Creeping from the house, and slinking off like a thief;
groping with his hands, when first he got into thestreet, as
if he were a blind man, and looking often over his shoulJer
while he hurried away as though he were followed in im-
agination or reality by some one anxious to question or de-
tain him, Ralph Nickleby left the city behind him, and took
the road to his own home.
The night was dark, and a cold wind blew, driving
the clouds furiously arid fast before it. There was one
black, gloomy mass, that seemed to follow him ; not hurry-
ing in the wild chase with the others, but lingering sullen-
ly behind, and gliding darkly and stealthily on. He often
looked back at this, and more than once stopped to let it
pass over, but somehow, when he went forward again, it
was still behind him, coming mournfully and slowly up like
a shadowy funeral train.
He had to pass a poor, mean burial ground-a dismal
place, raised a few feet above e level of the street, and
parted from it by a low parapet-wall and an iron railing -
a rank, unwholesome, rotten spot, where the very grass
and weeds seemed, in their frowsy growth, to tell that
they had sprung from paupers' bodies, and struck their
roots in the graves of men sodden i:k steaming courts and
drunken hungry dens. And here, in truth, they lay-part-
ed from the living by a little earth and a board or two-lay
thick and close-corrupting in body as they had been in mind
-a dense and squalid crow d. Here they lay cheek by jowl
with life, no deeper down than the feet of the throng that
passed there every day, and piled high as their throats.
Here they lay, a gristly family, all those dear departed bro-
thers and sisters of the ruddy clergyman, who did his task
so speedily when they were hidden in the ground !
"As he passed here, Ralph called to mind that he had
been one of a jury long before on the body of a man who
hatd cut his throat, and that he was buried in this place.
He could not tell how he came to recollect it now, when
he had so often passed and never thought about him, or
how it was that he felt an interest in the circumstance ; but
he did both, and stopping, and clasping the iron railings
with his hands, looked eagerly in, wondering which might
be his grave.
While he was thus engaged, there came towards him,
with noise of shouts and singing, some fellows full of
drink, followed by others, who were remonstrating with
them, and urging them to go home in quiet. They were
in high good humor, and one of them, a little, weazen,
hump-backed man, began to dance. He was a grotesque,
fantastic figure, and the few by-standers laughed. Ralph
himself was moved to mirth, and echoed the laugh of one
who stood near, and who looked round in his face. When
they had passed on and he was left alone again, he resum-
ed his speculation with a new kind of interest, for he re-
collected that the last person who had seen the suicide
alive had left him very merry, and he remembered how
strange he and the other jurors had thought that at the
He could not fix upon the spot among such a heap of
graves, but he conjectured up a strong and vivid idea of
the man himself, and how he looked, and what had led
him to do it; all of which he recollected with ease. By
dint of dwelling upon this theme, he carried the impression
with him when he went away, as he remembered when a
child to have had frequently before him the figure of some
goblin he had once seen chalked upon a door. But, as he
drew nearer and nearer home, he forgot it again, and be-
gan to think how very dull and solitary the house would
This feeling became so strong at last, that, when he
reached his own door, he could hardly make up his mind
to turn the key aiid open it; when he had done that and
gone into the passage, he felt as though to shut it again
would be to shut out the world. But he let it go, and it
closed with a loud noise. There was no light. How very
dreary, cold, and still it was!
Shivering from head to foot, he made his way up stairs
into the room where hlie had beenii last disturbed. He had
made a kind of compact with himself that he would not
think of what had happened until he got home. He was
at home now, and suffered himself, for the first time, to
His own child-his own child He never doubted
the tale; he felt it was true; knew it as well now as if he
had been privy to it all along. His own child And
dead too! Dying beside Nicholas; loving him, and look-
ing upon him as something like an angel! This was the
They had all turned from him and deserted him in his
very first need-even money could not buy them now;
every thing must come out, and every body must know
all. Here was the young lord dead, his companion abroad
and beyond his reach, ten thousand pounds gone at one
blow, his plot with Gride overset at the very moment of
triumph, his alter schemes discovered, himself in danger,
the object of his persecution and Nicholas's love, his own
wretched boy; every thing crumbled and fallen upon him,
and he beaten down beneath the ruins, and grovelling in
If he had known his child to be alive; if no deceit had
been ever practised, and he had grown up beneath his eye,
he might have been a careless, indifferent, rough, harsh
father-like enough he felt that-but the thought would
come that he might have been otherwise, and that his son
might have been a comfort to him, and they two happy to-
gether. He began to think now, that his supposed death
and his wife's flight had had some share in making him
the morose, hard man he was. He seemed to remember a
time when he was not quite so rough and obdurate; and
almost thought that he had first hated Nicholas because he
was young and gallant, and perhaps like the stripling who
had brought dishonor and loss of fortune on his head.
But one tender thought, or one of natural regret in
that whirlwind of passion and remorse, was a diop of calm
water in a stormy maddened sea. His hatred of Nicholas
had been fed upon his own defeat, nourished on his inter-
ference with his schemes, fattened upon his bold defiance
and success. There were reasons for its increase; it had
grown and strengthened gradually. Now it attained a
height which was sheer wild lunacy. That his of all others
should have been the hands to rescue his miserable child;
that he should have been his protector and faithful friend
that he should have shown him that love and tenderness
which from the wretched moment of his birth he had nevei
known; that he should have taught him to hale hiis ow
parent and execrate his very name; that he should now
know and feel all this, and triumph in the recollection, was
gall and madness to the usurer's heart. The dead boy's
love for Nicholas, and the attachment of Nicholas to him
was insupportable agony. The picture of his death-bed
with Nicholas at his side tending and supporting him, alit
one motion of its hand had let out the life and made this
stir among them.
i-e spoke no more, but after a pause softly groped his
way out of the room, and up the echoing stairs-up to the
top-to the front garret-where he closed the door behind
him, and remained.
It was a mere lnhmber-room now, but it yet contained
an old dismantled bedstead; the one on which his son had
slept, for no other had ever been there. He avoided it has-
tily, and sat down as tar from it as he could.
The weakened glare of the lights in the street below,
shining through the window, which had no blind or cur-
tain to intercept it, was enough to show the character of
the room, though not sufficient fully to reveal the various
articles of lumber, old corded trunks, and broken furni-
ture, which were scattered about. It had a shelving roof,
high in one part, and at another descending almost to the
floor. It was towards the highest part that Ralph direct-
ed his eyes, and upon it he kept them fixed steadily for
some minutes, when he rose, and dragging thither an old
chest upon which he had been seated, mounted upon it,
and felt along the wall above his head with both hands.
At length they touched a large iron hook firmly driven in-
to one of the beams.
At that moment he was interrupted by a loud knocking
at the door below. After a little hesitation, he opened the
window and demanded who it was.
I want Mr. Nickleby,' replied a voice.
What with him ?'
That's not Mr. Nickleby's voice, surely,' was the re-
It was not like it; but it was Ralph who spoke, and so
The voice made answer that the twin brothers wished
to know whether the man whom he had seen that night
was to be detained, and that, although it was now midnight,
they had sent in their anxiety to do right.
Yes,' cried Ralph, detain him till to-morrow ; then
let them bring him here-him and my nephew-and come
themselves, and be sure that I will be ready to receive
At what hour ?' asked the voice.
"' At any hour,' replied Ralph fiercely. In the after-
noon, tell them. At any hour-at any minute-all times
will he alike to me.'
He listened to the man's retreating footsteps until the
sound had passed, and then gazig p into the sky saw, or
thought he saw, the same black cloud that had seemed to
follow him home, and which now appeared to hover direct-
ly over the house.
'' I know its meaning now,' he muttered, and the iest-
less nights, the dreams, and why I have quailed of late,
all pointed to this. Oh if men by selling their own souls
could ride rampant for a term, for how short a term would
I barter mine to-night!'
"The sound of a deep bell came along the wind, one.
"'Lie on!' cried the usurer, with your iron tongue: ring
merrily for births that make expectants writhe, and mar-
riages that are made in hell, and toll ruefully for the dead
whose shoes are worn already. Call men to prayers who
are godly because not found out, and ring chimes for the
coming in of every year that brings this cursed world nearer
to its end. No bell or book for me; throw me on a dung-
hill, and let me rot there to infect the air !'
With a wild look around, in which frenzy, hatred, and
despair were horribly mingled, he shook his clenched hand
at the sky above him, which was still dark and threatening,
and closed the window.
The rain and hail pattered against the glass, the chim-
neys quaked and rocked; the crazy casement rattled with
the wind as though an impatient hand inside were striving
to burst it open. But no hand was there, and it opened no
"' How's this cried one, the gentlemen say they
can't make any body hear, and have been trying these two
And yet he came home last night,' said another, for
he spoke to somebody out of that window up stairs.'
They were a little knot of men, and, the window being
mentioned, they went out in the road to look up at it. This
occasioned their observing that the house was still close shut,
as the housekeeper had said she had left it on the previous
night, and led to a great many suggestions, which termi-
nated in two or three of the boldest getting round to the
back, and so entering by a window, while the others re-
mainrd outside in impatient expectation.
They looked into all the rooms below, opening the
shutters as they went to admit the fading light, and, still find-
ing nobody, and every thing quiet and in its place, doubted
whether they should go further. One man, however, re-
marking that they had not been into the garret, and that
it was there he had been last seen, they agreed to look
there too, and went up softly, for the mystery and silence
made them timid.
After they had stood for an instant on the landing
eyeing each other, he who had proposed their carrying the
search so far turned the handle of the door, and, pushing
it open, looked through the chink, and fell back directly.
It's very odd,' he whispered, he's hiding behind the
door! Look !'
They pressed forward to see, but one among them,
thrusting the others aside with a loud exclamation, drew a
clasp knife from his pocket, and rushing into the room cut
down the body.
He had torn a rope from one of the old trunks, and
hung himself on an iron hook immediately below the trap-
door in the ceiling, in the very place to which the eyes of
his son, a lonely, desolate, little creature, had so often been
directed in childish terror fourteen years before."
The work is dedicated to Mr. Macready as a slight
token of admiration and regard," and in a pleasant preface
public attention is claimed to two statements connected
with the contents of the story. These are, to the pictures
of Mr. Squeers and his school, which seem to have provok-
ed in various parts of Yorkshire all manner of ludicrous
denunciations of the author, but which, we are here as-
sured, are faint and feeble pictures of an existing reality,
purposely subdued and kept down lest they should be
deemed impossible ;" and to the likenesses of the Cheeryble
Brothers, which are drawn, we are told, from life. It is
remarkable," observes Mr. Dickens, that what we call
the world, which is so very credulous in what professes to
be true, is most incredulous in what professes to be imagi-
nary; and that while in every day life it will allow in one
man no blemishes, and in another no virtues, it will seldom
admit a very strongly marked character, either good or bad,
in a fictitious narrative, to be within the limits of probabi-
lity. For this reason, they have been very slightly and

OF A NEW PAPER, TO BE PUBLISHED SRMI-WEEKLY IN TIIE
CITY OF WASHINGTON, CALLED
THE WASHINGTON IWHIG.
IT'he undersigned proposes to publish, in the city ol o 'Washing-
S ton, a new paper, founded upon the W'hig principles ol '76.
The condition of the country and the deplorable mnistnanage-
ment of the present and preceding Adminiistrations of the I(o-
vernment make it the imperative duty of very good citizen to
exert all his energies and to apply his means to oveitbrow a
dynasty whose whole career has been marked by a reckless
disregard of the public intcres's, a sacrifice of the national wel-
fare to party aggrandizement, open violations of the sacred
charter of our liberties, and a determination, at all hazards, to
perpetuate in their own hands the power they have acquired,
by means which have never before been resorted to, anni which
are alike discreditableto toe character of the Goverimeut and
to those who tolerate such abuses.
It will be the effort of this press, by every fair and honora-
ble means, to destroy the party infatuation which now prevails
among a respectable portion of the American people, and, by
diffusing light and truth, in conjunction with its brethren of ihe
Opposition pres, to arrest the march of profligacy and folly
which have brought the country to the verge of bankruptcy and
ruin. It is time that the people should be roused from their
apparent apathy to vigorous exertion, and be made set.sible of
the perilous condition in which they now stand. Th-.y \vant
but light, and the press is the best vehicle for the successful
diffusion of that light. As the danger to the republic increases,
the battery of the public press should increase in fbtce and
power, till the darkness in which it has been shrouded shall be
dispelled, and delusion and error shall no longer exist.
The undersigned believes that, though a Whig paper be, and
has long been, established in Washington, which is conducted
with great dignity and ability, it does not supersede the neces-
sity of another co-laborer in the same field of usefulne-s. There
never was a more interesting and important crisis in the histo-
ry of our country than the present ; and it becomes the duty of
every citizen who desires to perpetuate its free institutions and
liberties to give every aid in his power to the ino,t efficient
means of correcting the evils and dangers which now hang over
the republic, from the folly and corruption orits rulers. The
position which the undersinced has chosen is, he thinks, pecu-
liarly suited to the accomplishment of such an object. The
fountain of corruption is at the seat of Government; its streams
from thi. source flow over the land, and a proximity to that.
source will afford greater facilities for the discovery and expo-
sure of the profligacy and mismanagement of those who have
been placed in the seat of power.
Animated by an ardent love of country, the undersigned will
endeavor to maintain, boldly and fearlessly, lie cause lie has
espoused, and the Whig principles upon which he sincerely
believes the stability and prosperity of the Government depend.
He will naught extenuate, and set down naught in malice."
The Whig party and its members, of both Houses, shiall always
find in his press an advocate willing and prepare d to defend
them when unjustly assailed and wantonly aspersed, as they
too often have been, by the venal prints of the Ad;iinistra;ion
party. No exertion shall be spared to make the W'ASHINGTON
WHIG a vehicle of correct political intelligence, and a support-
er of the true principles oi' republicanism, so essential to the
purity and perfection of all free Governments. It will be his
endeavor, as a faithful sentinel, to guard the citadel of the Con-
stitution against the dangerous inroads of Locotocoismn, and its
offspring, Agrarianism, as well as the daring assumptiois of
iower on the part of the Executive Government wlich have,
for the last ten years, been carried to an extent calcnl.ted to
rouse the fears and beget the most serious apprehensions in
all who love their country and desire the durability of ts free
With a view to render the Whig interesting, not only to the
politician and man of business, but to the literary reader, it is
the intention of the proprietor to bend, occasionally, when its
columns are not otherwise occupied, the heaver matter of poli-
tics with the lighter, and perhaps more agreeable, pro auctions
of literature. Critical notices will be given, from liiLe to time,
of such works of merit as may issue from the press of this coun-
try, that the reader may be kept apprized of what is doing in
the literary as well as in the political world.
The undersigned has engaged the services of Mr. GEORGE
WATTERSTON to conduct the Editorial department of this pa-
per, who is a gentleman of education, of matured judgment,
of much experience as a public writer, and possessing an
intimate acquaintance with the political and party history of the
The WASHINGTON WHIG will be printed twice a week, on
a double royal sheet, with new type, at $5 per annum, payable
on receipt of the first number.
Should sufficient encouragement be afforded, it is proposed to
commence the publication of the WHIG about the middle of De-
cember next; previous to which time it is desirable that the
names of subscribers should be forwarded to the publisher.

SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 9, 1839.
The election, under the Governor's Procla-
mation, for a Representative to Congress from
the State of MISSOURI, to fill the vacancy occa-
sioned by the decease of Mr. HARRISON, was
held on Monday, the 28th ultimo. Returns of
the election in the city of St. Louis, and part of
the county, have reached us. In St. Louis city
the votes were, for GRIMSLEY (Whig) 928, JA-
MIESON (Adm.) 572-being a gain to the Whigs
since the last election. It is probable, however,
that the Administration candidate will have suc-
ceeded in the whole State, especially as the
Whig candidate was brought out so short a time
before the election.
In the Legislature of TENNESSEE, a proposi-
tion having been made, in conformity with the
new Governor's suggestion, to instruct the Bank
of Tennessee and branches to resume specie
payments, it came up for consideration in the
Senate on the 29th ult. and was rejected,
by 14 votes to 9. Among the Yeas were two
Whigs, and among the Nays were six Van Bu-

THE FLORIDA WAR.
From the quarter from which the following
article comes, we presume that entire reliance
may be placed upon its statements :
FROM THE ARMY AND NAVY CHRONICLE, OCT 31.
FLORIDA WAR.-The season for active operations hav-
ing returned, and the public mind, in the Army as well as
out of it, being somewhat agitated by the contradictory na-
ture of the reports in circulation, we have made inquiry that
we might inform our readers what measures were contem-
plated in the approaching campaign.
Gen. TAYLOR, by the zealous and intelligent discharge
of his duties, having given satisfaction to the Department,
will continue in command.
The troops now in Florida are the third regiment of artil-
lery, a portion of the second dragoons, and the first, second,
sixth and seventh regiments of infantry. The third artil-
lery, having been much reduced, will be sent to the north,
and be relieved* by the first artillery, which has been re-
cruited, and is now full. The companies of the second
dragoons that arrived at New York in the spring being
now full also, will return to Florida; and the regiments of
infantry now there will remain.
It is intended to drive the enemy out of the settlements
by occupying the country within and north of a line drawn
from Pilatka to the mouth of the Withlacoochee, including
Fort King; thence, along the western coast, to the Appa-
lachicola; and by maintaining posts as low down as the
mouth of the Withlacooche. The inhabitants will be arm-
ed, and the defence of their firesides and neighborhoods
confided to them, with such assistance from the regulars as
occasion may call for. ,The posts on the Atlantic coast
and at Tampa Bay will be continued, with such others as
the Commanding General may find expedient.
Experience having mournfully proved the impracticabil-
ity of forcing the Indians from their swamps and ham-
mocks, so familiar to them, but inaccessible to us, no fur-
ther attempts will at present be made; leaving to time and
the gradual spread of the settlements the accomplishment
of an object unattainable by arms.
The report so extensively circulated of conferences be-
tween the SECRETARY OF WAR and Major Generals MA-
COMB and SCOTT are entirely without foundation; no such
conferences have been held. Equally unfounded is that
of sending seven thousand troops to Florida; if all our re-
gulars now out of the territory were taken from their pre-
sent stations, they would not amount to the number nam-
ed. The Northern, Northwestern and Southwestern fron-
tiers are quite as much exposed, and stand as much in
need of defence as does the Territory of Florida. There
has been no design entertained heretofore of sending the
eighth infantry into Florida, its presence being considered
essential to the maintenance of neutrality on the borders of
Canada. The fourth artillery will be stationed between
Cleveland, Ohio, and Fort Gratiot; and the second artille-
ry will be divided between Fort Niagara and Buffalo.
It is believed that some additional small vessels will be
built or purchased, and sent to the coast of Florida, to pre-
vent depredations by the Indians upon wrecked vessels and
Connected with the foregoing remarks, a retrospect of
recent events in Florida will not be inappropriate.
During the last session of Congress an appropriation of
$5,000 was made for the purpose of holding a treaty with
the Seminole Indians." In virtue of this appropriation,
General MACOMB was sent to Florida; and, being the
General-in-chief of the Army, it was thought that his rank
would have more weight and influence with the Imnians
than a civilian could have. General MACOMB held confer-
ences with some of the chiefs, and finally entered into an
agreement (there was no written treaty) with Chitto Tus-
tenuggee, the acknowledged successor of Ar-pi-ucki, or
Sam Jones ; (the latter, it is understood, has never held or
exercised any military command, but stands in the light of
a counsellor among his tribe.) One of the stipulations of
this agreement was the establishment of a trading post near
the mouth of Synabel river. The mission of Col. HARNEY
to carry into effect this stipulation, the surprise of his party,
the massacre of a portion, and the escape of the rest, are
familiar to all. Sam Jones and his tribe were at the time
in the vicinity of Fort Lauderdale, distant about 100 miles,
and have not only denied all participation in, or knowledge
of, the massacre, but up to the latest advices continue to
manifest a neutral disposition and an intention to abide by
the agreement made with General MACOMB.
The approaching campaign, then, will partake more of a
defensive than offensive character, as it will be confined to
driving the Indians from the settled portions of Florida,
where they have committed depredations almost without
check. It having been found impossible to force the In-
dians from their fastnesses, any further attempt to effect

According to the advertisement, which has
probably attracted the notice of our readers, the
delivery of the Introductory Lectures to the
course of Medical instruction in the Columbian

followed on successive days by Dr. THOMAS, Dr.

The only one of the Introductory Lectures of
which we have had an opportunity to form an
opinion is the first, being that delivered by the
Anatomical Professor, (Dr. MAY.) Without
arrogating to ourselves any particular qualifica-
tion for judging of its professional merits, we
feel free to express our admiration of the plain
and impressive character of the composition of
this Lecture, to which the greatest effect was
given by the manner of its delivery. It was con-
fined, in its scope, of course, very much to the
peculiar province of the Lecturer. What ap-
peared most remarkable in his discourse, was
the importance which he attaches to the study
of Pathological Anatomy. The forcible and
conclusive manner in which he demonstrates its
utility highly accords with the philosophy of
the age, which he appears to have studied to
great advantage, and which must give great va-
lue to his professional labors and lectures.
We repeat our gratification at the re-opening
of this School of Medical Science, which we
hope will not again be allowed to be suspended

By the barque Ann Eliza, Captain BIscoE, at
New York from Vera Ciuz, we learn that the
French brig Naiade had just received on board
the last instalment of the $600,000 agreed to
be paid to France by the Mexican Government.
The conduct conveying the above money to
Vera Cruz from the capital not having arrived
the day previous to that appointed for its pay-
ment, the French Consul called on the Com-
mandant of Vera Cruz and threatened to pro-
test the following day. He was answered that
there was no occasion for such proceedings, as
the money was ready for him. The commer-
cial houses at Vera Cruz subscribed the amount
immediately, and lent it to Government until
the conduct should arrive, which was then on
the road, about 30 leagues distant from Vera
Cruz. The money was paid to the French
Consul on the day it became due.
No news from the capital. The Republic
was in a state of tranquillity. The Federalists
having been completely put down, the Central
Government were more firmly established than
ever. The Congress were proceeding to reform
the Constitution, agreeably to the expressed
wish of the ex-President, SANTA ANA.
We are pleased to see that most of the Whig
journals are disposed to grant every facility for
a full discussion of the great questions of the
day-banks and currency. We think it the
duty of every editor, on questions of such im-
portance, to show what are the views of every
class of persons. They ought not to be consi-
dered as party questions.-Political Arena.
BORDER TROUBLES-MISSOURI AND IOWA.
A postscript in the Burlington (Iowa) Ga-
zette of the 19th ult. says:
A communication was received last evening by the
Governor, from Van Buren county, stating that on Mon-
day last the sheriff of Clark county, Mo. with some two or
three others, made his appearance on the disputed ground,
for the purpose of collecting the taxes; and on the refusal
of the citizens to pay, he departed, giving notice that he
would return on the following Monday, with a force suffi.
cient to compel payment. It is further added, that a ren-
dezvous of the military was to have taken place at Water-
loo some time during the present week, and that on next
Monday the ground in dispute will be invaded by an armed
force. We await further intelligence with no little anx-
A meeting of the settlers took place at Morgan's Mill,
Van Buren county, Iowa, on the preceding day, at which
the following resolution was adopted :
"Resolved, That the citizens of the townships whose
lands are not to be sold at the next sale be invited to at-
tend at the land sales which commence on Monday next,

thus given in the Paris (Missouri) Sentinel of
the 19th ult.

this place, bearing information to the Governor of this
State that an armed force from Iowa had sized upon and
forcibly attempted to imprison the sheriff of Clark county,
who was, as usual, engaged in the legal discharge of his

We are sorry that it has come to this, but Missouri must
and will stand by her rights.
The New York correspondent of the United
States Gazette, under date of Tuesday, writes :
Our merchants have had hard times and terrible diffi-
culties to encounter. They have had an up-hill business,
and once for a long time. Some have, unfortunately, fail-
ed; others may meet similar misfortunes. Heavy pay-
ments are to be made between this and the 15th instant,
and, in the mean time, some excellent houses may be forced
to close, or procure extensions. The banks are doing, and
willing to do, all they reasonably can. They would do
more if all things were right in other quarters. If our
merchants can go beyond the middle of the month, there is
but little to fear after that. They have now good encour-
agement. and will strain every nerve to sustain themselves.
THE UNITED STATES BANK AND THE MESSRS.
HOTTINGUER AND ROTHSCHILD.
On the 24th of October the Philadelphia U.
S. Gazette published a communication in which
it was said: We have taken some trouble to
'inquire, and are authorized to assert, that not
' only were all the bills of the Bank of the Uni-
' ted States accepted by the Messrs. Rothschild,
Sbut, moreover, that the funds of the bank in
France previously, together with the remit-
' tances since, place in that country to the cre-
* dit of the bank at least ONE MILLION OF FRANCS
' beyond all the liabilities of the institution there, includ-
' ing the bills accepted by the Messrs. Rothschild."
In republishing it yesterday, the United States Gazette
says: We were then contradicted by the Journal of
Commerce and other papers of New York. We have
'now the opportunity of stating, with undeniable certain-
ty, that our allegations were literally true, and have per-
mission to copy the following letter, received in this city
yesterday, why or how kept back we know not, being
post-marked New York, November 4th. The letter of
Sthe Messrs. Rothschild's agent in New York, announcing
'the acceptance by them, is dated October 10, 1839, per
'the Liverpool. The amount, 5,500,000 francs, is more
'than the entire amount of bills refused by the Messrs.
SHottinguer, and full remittances for the whole went for-
ward regularly for their payment, the receipt of several
of which have been acknowledged and handed over by
'them. The conspiracy against the Bank of the United
'States, at home and abroad, is rapidly approaching to a
Full development. When the commercial world is put in
possession of the astounding facts connected with this
Malevolent and nefarious attempt, the credit of this great
institution will stand forth in renewed lustre, and those
Swho have allowed themselves to be duped into needless
sacrifices of its stock or its securities, will only have to
Sdeplore their own folly and credulity."
The following is the letter addressed to THOMAS DUN-
LAP, Esq. President of the Bank of the United States:
PARIS, SEPTEMBER 23, 1839.
MR. PRESIDENT: We have the honor to inform you that
we have arranged with Mr. Jaudon to accept for your ac-
count the amount of 5,500,000 francs, your drafts on the
Messrs. Hottinguer, which remained in suspense. We
take it for granted that Mr. Jaudon will have informed
you of the arrangements entered into by us with him for
this purpose, and consequently consider it unnecessary to
recapitulate them here, limiting ourselves to furnishing
you, on the other side, a memorandum of such of your
drafts as have been left in our hands to-day to be clothed
with our acceptance.
We are happy, Mr. President, to have found an oppor-
tunity to give you a proof of our high consideration for
the establishment over which you preside, and to have been
able, at the s.ime time, to arrest the disastrous effects which
this refusal of acceptance on the part of Messrs. Hottin-
guers was beginning to produce in our place, as well as in
Lyons, by many holders of your bills, who, pressed by
their necessities to an immediate realization of their funds,
were offering to part with these securities at a loss over the
We shall correspond with Mr. Jaudon in every thing
concerning our acceptance on your account, in conformity
to his request made to us, so that we shall not be obliged
to trouble you with details relative to this operation, ex-
cept in case of new instructions on your part.
We present to you, Mr. President, assurances of our
most distinguished consideration.

THE COTTON CROP OF THE U. STATES.
FROM THE PENNSYLVANIA INQUIRER.
As the period is rapidly approaching when
we shall be able to form something like a defi-
nite idea as to the actual state of the cotton
crop of the United States for 1839, as compared
with former years, the present information with-
in our reach upon the subject will, no doubt, be
looked upon with interest. The crop of the
year ending September 30, 1838, was 1,801,497
bales. The total crop this year is now estimat-
ed at 1,365,698 bales. Decrease, 435,799.

It will be observed, by the above statement,
that there is a decrease in the crop compared
with the preceding year of 435,799 bales; but
if we deduct 150,000 bales included in that year,
which were believed to have belonged to the
previous year, the actual difference of this year
compared with the last will be 285,799 bales.
The estimate of the quantity taken for consump-
tion does not include any cotton manufactured in
the States south and west of Virginia, nor any
in that State, except in the vicinity of Peters-

REPORTED FOR THE NATIONAL INTELLIGENCE.
CRIMINAL COURT, FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 8, 1839.
The United States vs. Dennis G. Orme.
The trial of the late bank-teller of the Bank of the Me-
tropolis for grand larceny, which has excited so much inte-
rest in our community, and lasted nearly a week, was
brought to a close to-day about half past two o'clock. At
the opening of the Court this morning the District Attor-
ney continued his closing address to the jury, and did not
conclude until half past 1 o'clock. In the opinion of most
persons who heard it, including the members of the bar,
and those who were best able to appreciate its merits, the
speech of the learned District Attorney was one of his
most powerful efforts. The defence of the accused by the
Messrs. BRENT & BRENT was conducted with more than
usual zeal and ability.
The jury retired after the Court had given them certain
instructions, and or their return into the Court-room, in
about ten minutes after they left the box, gave in a verdict
of NOT GUILTY.

NEW YORK, NOVEMBER 7.
New York city has again surrendered to the
Locofocos, with a majority of from 1,500 to
1,800. About 38,000 votes have been thrown-
a decrease of about 1,500 since last Fall. The
apathy of the mercantile community, and the
disposition to try the worst as the shortest way
to the end, have led to this, result in the city.
The peculiar character of the currency at this
moment, and the severe contraction of the banks,
have unmanned many of their old defenders just
at this moment. The bank officers of the old
clique, such as PRESERVED FISH, C. W. LAW-
RENCE, et al. voted the whole Locofoco ticket,
and when thus wealth will take such nostrums,
numbers will follow.
FROM THE COUNTRY, however, the reports are
to this hour as favorable as they were last year.
Duchess Ulster, Albany, and Rensselaer give
cheering news. The Whigs in Albany have
strong hopes that they have carried the Third
District-the battle-ground of the State. Rich-
mond (one member) has gone over to VAN Bu-
REN. Kings is as it was. Queens is doubtful.
Letters from the interior speak with great confi-
dence of the ability of the country to take care
of the State without the city. The Van Bu-
ren party have now to gain five members over
last year in order to take the State. Anxiety.to
hear from the interior is intense, but curiosity
cannot be gratified till to-morrow.
A most important decision of the Supreme
Court of this State threatens to annihilate our
whole system of Free Banking under the new
law. The Judges have decided that they are
corporations; that to create them required the
two-thirds' vote of the State Constitution ; and
that the act, if passed by two-thirds, is consti-
tutional. The effects of this decision it is im-
possible to foresee.
From VERA CRUZ we have, by an arrival last
night, news in forty days. The French brig
Naiade had just received on board the last instal-
ment of the $600,000 agreed to be paid to
France by the Mexican Government. The Re-
public was tranquil. The Central Government
is firmly established. By this arrival here
$100,000 in specie was brought.
From CANADA we learn that Sir GEORGE AR-
THUR contemplates the dis-olution of the Pro-
vincial Parliament, and the submission of the
political questions now in debate to the electors.
The reformers have urged this, and there is a
fair probability that they will slip into power.
Money affairs show nothing striking. U. S.
Bank is now down to 65. Bank of Commerce
90. Stocks generally falling to-day.
In consequence of the Collector's refusing to
receive Treasury notes for bonds but on restrict-
ed and embarrassing conditions, these notes are
on the fall, and now below par; What these
conditions are, I wish to inquire into before I
state them. The Government, however, seems
to be throwing discredit, by its course, upon its

state that no order for the National Intelligen-
cer," for the session of Congress, or for any other

LADY HESTER STANHOPE,
A TERRIBLE STORY.
FROM THE EXETER NEWS LETTER.
It was just before the storming of Callao when we were
cruising off the coast of Peru, one clear afternoon we saw
just in with the land a beautiful Spanish sloop of war ly-
ing to, under cover ot a small fort, but at a long distance
from the rest of the fleet. Our Commodore marked it out
at once for a prize ; the boats were manned and held in
readiness, but how they were to act with effect was a mys-
tery to all, until, about seven bells of the afternoon watch,
there came up so dense a fog that you could not see the
length of the ship; we knew the bearings of the enemy,
and, as soon as the fog came on, pulled quietly towards
them with muffled oars. It was a fearful enterprise, and
many mysterious and direful forebodings passed through
my mind as we approached the bark, which was the thea-
tre of one of the bloodiest butcheries ever witnessed in the
Peruvian waters. 1 knew well what the valor of their
men would do when driven to desperation; I knew that
every inch of deck would be disputed, hilt to hilt, by the
despairing Spaniards, till there was not one left to lilt a
cutlass or a boarding pike. And under such circumstances
I would have given very little for my life. I thought of all
the battles I had been in, and was yet alive ; but that
thought could not protect me now: my heart began to fail
me, and for the first time I thought seriously of dying.
Of a sudden there was a slight murmuring among our
men, and looking upwards the masts and yards of the ves-
sel could be seen distinctly looming up though the fog,
seemingly to an enormous height. In an instant every
misgiving left me, in the dreadful excitement which car-
ries man away from his reason, and makes him thiist for
the blood of his brother worse than ever did the most fero-
cious tiger of the East for the prey which Nature gives him.
And I who, but a few moments before, would have given
worlds to be any where else, was now eager to rush upon
the decks of strangers, and bathe my sword in the life-
blood of those men who had never done me the least inju-
ry. At this moment not a sound was heard, except the
shortened breathing of our men, who were seen with their
lips compressed, intently watching the foe, examining their
weapons, tightening their belts, and preparing for the des-
perate encounter, which was to be the struggle of so many
brave men. The enemy had not yet perceived us, and,
under cover of the fog, we dropped quietly under the ship's
stern, and were upon her quarters before the alarm was
given. The surprise was complete-and such a scene of
uproar and confusion followed upon her decks as would
defy all efforts at description. Most of the men were at
that time unprovided with arms, and, in the rush from all
quarters to get at them, all order and discipline was lost. No
one heard the voice of the commander in the terror of the
moment; our men were now fast leaping on the decks, and
commencing the slaughter. Order, however, was soon
restored among them-they made a desperate stand, and
fairly drove back the first boat's crew, but they were con-
tinually crowding upon them from all quarters, and the at-
tempt to repel them was in vain-many of the men who
were unarmed now began to see the hopelessness of their
condition, and leaped into the sea by scores, to avoid fall-
ing into our hands.
But a voluntary death is no trifling matter, and these
ill-fated men found too late that drowning is not so very
pleasant after all. It was heart-rending to hear their shrieks
and howlings as they caught hold of their boats to save
themselves, and had their hands cut off in the attempt.
Poor fellows! it was a hard thing for me, but we were
under the necessity of doing it, or else, from their num-
bers, we had all been buried in the ocean together.
You may form some idea of the number of men who
perished in this way from the fact that after the engage-
ment was over, from the single boat to which I belonged
I took up my tarpaulin hat five times full of human fingers,
and threw them into the sea. Our boat was prevented fi-r
a while from coming alongside by the others, which occu-
pied every accessible point, and I began to fear I should
not participate in the honor of capturing the prize. How
ever, we soon crowded ourselves up under the main chains,
and began to climb the side; the third lieutenant, who
was in our boat, had nearly reached the top of the nettings,
and I was standing on the forward thwart of the boat, when
one of our men, who was in the act of throwing a hand-
grenade, was horribly mutilated by its explosion ; he gave
a leap into the air, and fell heavily into the boat a torn and
mangled corpse. I looked for a moment at the disgusting
remains of my comrade till my blood froze in my veins,
and crept with icy coldness to the extremities of my fin-
gers, then leaping upwards I caught the lanyard of a back-
stay. By this time our lieutenant stood on the summit of
the hammock settings; he raised himself proudly to his
vtmost height, stood in an attitude that would have done
honor to any celebrated actor of tragedy, and, flourishing
his sword over his head, was on the point of springing
down on the foe, shouting with all his might, Now, my
brave fellows, now"-when half a dozen boarding pikes
were thrust at him with a will and a precision of aim that
must have proved fatal, had he not avoided the bristly dan-
ger by springing backward into the rigging; but, instead
of catching, as he intended, in the shrouds, he came lum-
bering down the ship's side, bringing three or four men
with him, and taking me in their course: all went pell-mell
into the boat together. It was in this break-neck tumble
that I received the wound in my breast which left this scar.
Though I did not perceive it at the time, it must have been
done by a back-handed blow from the lieutenant's sword.
For the love of mercy, get off my head,"cried I, as loud
as I could articulate, with my mouth and throat filled with
blood. Oh are you alive, then," said the lubberly offi-
cer, and he raised his foot. I expect I am, sir, though
all the same as dead here." You may judge what were
my feelings on rising, to find I had been literally trodden
into the mangled body of our dead shipmate, and was drip-
ping from head to foot with the blood of my friend. I know
not how to describe the complexity of my feeling at that
moment; I was fairly beside myself; and washing my face
hastily in the sea, with the fury of a maniac I dashed up
the side of the ship, and plunged into the thickest of the
fight. By this time, our men had made a most terrible
slaughter there; dead bodi s were lying in heaps upon
heaps, in all directions; and these, with the blood which
was pouring from the scuppers like water in a heavy show-
er of rain, rendered it extremely difficult to walk about or
even to stand on the slippery decks; still these desperate
men maintained their ground with a firmness that was
truly astonishing considering their numbers. Every man
seemed resolved not to be taken alive, and fought with a
determination to sell his life as dearly as possible. Such
was the stage of the battle when I rushed into the midst.
I made the most extraordinary exertions for a few minutes,
but soon found my maniac rage began to cool, and thought
of acting on the defensive. To retreat wasimpossible, for
such is the strict order and discipline of a se t fight, that
you will meet the same fate from your friend if you at-
tempt to turn and fly alone, that you are likely to meet
from the enemy by facing them manfully. The Spaniards
were soon so much reduced that they were fairly surround-
ed and overpowered by numbers. I had just parried a
most scientific thrust made at me by a lung-limbed skele-
ton of a Portuguese, and gave him his own with interest,
when they threw down their arms for quarter. I now
loaded my pistol, which I had discharged but once during
the engagement, and was about returning it to my belt.
when a Spanish boy, a mere stripling, sprung towards me
with a bound, clapped the muzzle of his pistol to my breast,
and I came within an ace of losing my life, when I thought
the fighting all over. Making a sweep with the Lutt-end
of my long boarding-pistol, I laid him on the deck just in
time to avoid the messenger of death. I was a little start-
led at the moment, and discharged the contents of my wea-
pon into his prostrate body. Shipmates, if ever I was sor-
ry fur any thing in my life, it was for that deed ; the poor
boy raised his head, and gave me such a look Oh, hea-
ven I can see it now! So innocent and wistful-so full
of expressive helplessness, it seemed to implore me to spare
him, at the same time that it upbraided me for my cruelty;
it was like the last look of a wounded pigeon, fluttering
and expiring at your feet. I took him up in my arms, in
the hope-that the wound was not mortal, and that he might
yet recover; but it was too late-the death-rattle was in
his throat-and I carried him aft to the capstan, and laid
him down with as much care as if he had been my own
son, in a spot where he would not be trodden upon by the
crowd. I watched there beside him, gazing upon hissweet
face, and mourning that I had deprived so bright a being
of existence, until [ was ordered aloft to shift the main top-
mast staysail halliards over to leeward, for they were mak-
ing sail on the ship to get her out of the reach of the fort
[FROM A LATE AUSTRIAN PAPER ]
It was at Djouni, in Syria, that Lady Hester has died,
after a long illness, at the age of sixty-four. That reader
must be indifferent who reverts not with interest to his re-
collections of a woman who has expired on the borders of
the Desert, amidst the Druses and Turkomans, over whom
that noble daughter of the infidels once exercised so strange
and so marvellous a sway! The destiny of Lady Stan-
hope presents one of those features of which not another
instance could perhaps be found in the annals of the East.
Only imagine forty thousand Arabs suddenly assembled
upon the ruins of Palmyra, and these wandering, savage,
and indomitable tribes surrounding, in silent astonishment
and admiration, a foreign wonan, and proclaiming her So-
vereign of the Desert and Queen of Palmyra Convey
your:-elfin thought to the scene of this incredible triumph,
and you will then conceive what woman that must have
been who imposed silence on Mussulman fanaticism, and
created for herself, as it were, by magic, a Sovereignty in
the domains of Mohammed !
Lady Hester Stanhope," says M. de Lamartine, in his
admirable work, was a niece of Mr. Pitt. On the death
of her uncle she left England, and visited various parts of
Europe. Young, handsome, and rich, she was every-
where received with the attention and interest due to her
rank, fortune, mind, and beauty; but she constantly re-
fused to unite her fate to that of her worthiest admirers,
and, after spending some years in the principal capitals of
Europe, embarked with a numerous suite for Constantino-
ple. The real cause of this expatriation has never been
known; some have ascribed it to the death of a young
English officer, who was killed at that period in Spain, and
whom an eternal regret must render forever present in Lady
Hester Stanhope's heart; others have imputed her volun-
tary banishment to a mere love of adventure in a young
person of an enterprising and courageous character. How-
ever this might be, she departed, spent some years at Con-
stantinople, and then sailed for Syria in an English vessel,
which carried also the larger part of her fortune, as well as
jewelry, trinkets, and presents of all sorts, of very consider-
The vessel encountered a storm in the Gulf of Maori,
on the road to Caramania; the ship was wrecked, Lady
Hester Stanhope's property was all lost, and it was as
much as she could do to save her own life. Nothing, how-
ever, could shake her resolution. She returned to England,
gathered the remainder of her fortune, sailed again for
Syria, and landed at Latakia, the ancient Laodicea. She
had at first thought of fixing her abode at Broussa, at the
foot of Olympus ; but Broussa is a commercial city, situate
on the avenues to the Ottoman capital, and reckoning not
less than sixty thousand inhabitants; and Lady Hester
Stanhope sought the independence and solitude of the De-
sert. She therefore selected the wilderness of Mount Le-
banon, whose extreme ramifications lose themselves in the
sands. Ruined Palmyra-Zenobia's ancient capital-suit-
el her fancy. The noble exile took up her residence at
Diouni, prepared for every vicissitude. Europe," said
she, is a monotonous residence; its nations are unworthy
of free fom, and endless revolutions are unworthy of free-
dom." She applied herself to the study of the Arabic lan-
guage, and strove to obtain a thorough acquaintance with
the character and manners of the Syrian people. One
day, dressed in the costume of the Osmanlis, she set out
for Jerusalem, Damascus, Aleppo, and the Desert; she
advanced amidst a caravan loaded with wealth, tents,
and presents for the Scheiks, and was soon surrounded by
all the tribes, who knelt to her, and submitted to her su-
It was not solely by her magnificence that Lady Hester
had excited the ad'iiration of the Arabs; her courage had
been proved on more than one occasion, and she had al-
ways faced peril with a boldness and energy which the
tribes well remembered. Lady Hester Stanhope knew,
also, how to flatter the Mahommedan prejudices. She held
no intercourse with Christians and Jews; she spent whole
days in the grotto of a santon, who explained the Koran to
her; and never appeared in public without that mien of
majestic and grave inspiration which was always unto
Oriental nations the characteristic of prophets. With her,
however, this conduct was not so much the result of design
as of a decided proneness to every species of excitement and
Lady Hester Stanhope's first abode was but a monaste..
ry. It was soon transformed into an Oriental palace, with
pavilions, orange gardens, and myrtles, over which spread
the foliage of the cedar, such as it grows in the mountains
of Lebanon. The traveller to whom Lady Hester opened
this sanctuary would behold her clad in Oriental garments.
Her head was covered with a turban made of a red and
white cassimere. She wore a long tunic, with open loose
sleeves; large Turkish trousers, the folds of which hung
over yellow morocco boots embroidered with silk. Her
shoulders were covered with a sort of burnous, and a yata-
ghan hung at her waist. Lady Hester Stanhope had a se-
rious and imposing countenance; her noble and mild fea-
tures had a majestic expression, which her high stature and
the dignity of her movements enhanced.
The day came when all this prestige, so expensively
kept up, suddenly vanished. Lady Hester's fortune rapid-
ly declined ; her income yearly decreased ; in short, the sub-
stantial resources which had at one time sustained the
magic of her extraordinary domination were daily forsaking
her. The Queen of Palmyra then fell back into the rank
of mere mortals; and she who had signed absolute firmans
enabling the traveller to visit in security the regions of Pal-
myra-she whose authority the Sublime Porte had tacitly
acknowledged-soon saw her people disown her omni-
potency; she was left the title of Queen, but it was but an
empty name, a mere recollection; and again the monaste-
ry's silence ruled over the solitude of Djouni. A Q.ueen,
stripped of her glory of a day, Lady Hester Stanhope has
expired, the sport ot fate, at the moment the East is con-
vulsed. She has expired in obscurity and loneliness, with-
out even mingling her name with the great events of which
it is now the theatre.
BYRON'S SUPERSTITION.--When Lord BYRON resided at
Pisa, in 1821, he expressed a desire to become acquainted
with Doctor Todd, and requested their mutual friend, Mr.
May, to bring the doctor to call upon him, which he accord-
ingly did. After walking in the garden until fatigued and
wearied, waiting for his lordship's appearance, Mr. Hay
requested the domestic to remind Lord Byron that they
were waiting an audience. The domestic returned imme-
diately with a note from his lordship, addressed to Mr.
Hay, requesting that gentleman to make his apology to Dr.
Todd for not receiving him that morning, but with the hope
of having the pleasure at a future period, as he could not
prevail on himself to make a new acquaintance upon a
Friday; at the same time requesting Hay to show the
note to the doctor.-Metropolitan Magazine.
MORALiTY OF A COUNTRY TowN.-Not long since, a
young man, by the name of Cogen, was killed in Berwick,
Pennsylvania, by being thrown from a horse against a tree
while riding a race. The occurrence called the people of
the town together in public meeting, to take measures for
the suppression of vice and immorality of every kind. One
of the resolutions of the meeting declares that there are in
the town of Berwick but two sors, three occasional drunk-
ards, and four or five moderate dram drinkers.
FALLEN GRANDEUR -The interior of that venerable pile
of feudal grandeur, Newark Castle, (England,) which has
resisted the storms of war and the fury of the tempest for
more than 700 years, is now cleared away, and the site of
the ground where the death-stricken and licentious John,
the pedantic James, the equivocal Henrietta, and the irre-
solute and vacillating Charles, bore so conspicuous a part,
is shortly to be opened as a cattle market! The ground is
the property of W. F. Handley, Esq. who purchased it at
the late sale of the Crown lands, and it is agreed to be let at a
yearly rent to the town council. The Duke of Newcastle
has granted a lease of the tolls and profits arising from the
cattle market for the like period. On this spot more than a
hundred skeletons have been dug up. It is conjectured
that these bodies were buried during the different sieges,
and at the time of -a destructive pestilence, in 1646, which
carried off many of the garrison previous to its surrender.

A VALUABLE LOUISIANA COTTON PLAN-
STATION, with more than ltO acclimated
Slaves and stock, for -ale.-Wishing to change my pur-
suits, I will sell my Plantation in this parish, together with more
than 100 Slaves, stock of Horses, Mules, Cattle, Sheep, and
Hoes, Farming Implements, Provender, &c.
The plantation tract is situated on Bayou Boeuff, twelve to
fourteen miles from this place, and contains near 1,00o arpents
of rich bottom land, arable and tree from overflow, the most of
which is cleared for the plough and in cultivation, and is within
a day of boating distance of Red river, with which there is na-
vigable water intercourse the most of the year.
'he Pinewoods tract is four miles from my plantation, and
contains about 200 arpents, a new and spacious two-story wood-
en Dwelling-house, all necessary out-houses, and a fountain of
good and never-failing water very convenient.
To a suitable purchaser, who will, on taking possession, pay
uie one-tenth of the entire price, I will sell on one to ten years'
credit, and at what I conceive a fair price and moderate rate of
interest. For a more minute description, price, &c. apply to
Messrs. Lambeth & Thompson, of New Orleans, or the under-

VALUABLE ESTATE ALE.-The subscriber,
S wishing to remove South, offers for sale the estate he now
resides on, iq King George county, Virginia, situatedimminedi-
ately on the Potomac, sixty miles from Washington city. This
place, well known by the name of Waterloo, contains between
eight hundred and one thousand acres. The soil, in point of
fertility, is not inferior to any in the county, and the timber on
the estate is of great value. A small family seine has been used
on the shore, and a great abundance of fish caught, and if more
extended means were used, there is no doubt a fishery would
be profitable. There have been continual applications for the
use of the shore as a fishery. The dwelling house is a spacious
brick building, and not inferior in workmanship to any in the
State ; the other improvements are all extensive and costly.
Persons disposed to purchase are invited to examine the pre-
mises, when the subscriber can mak. known the terms of sale.
Possession will be given at the expiration of the present year.
All letters addressed to the subscriber, at Hampstead Post Of-

This property is beautifully situated in a pleasant valley, at
the junction of the Patuxent and Cattail rivers, in one of the
most healthy districts in Maryland, being 25 miles from Balti-
more, and 10 from the Baltimore and Ohio railroad.
The water-power is unusually permanent, and embraces the
whole Patuxent and Cattail rivers, with a fall of about twenty
The improvements consist, in part, of a substantial Stone
Factory, seventy-five by twenty-nine feet, and three stories
high, with which is included tile Cotton Machinery therein,
consisting of 1,128 thostle spindles, and all the necessary pre-
paration for making coarse yarns of a superior quality. The
building and water-power, it is believed, are amply sufficient
to contain and propel double the quantity of machinery now
Also, a Stone Gristand Merchant Mill, with two run of stones,
which has ground 12,000 bushels of grist per year.
A Saw Mill, fifty-six feet long, in good running order.
Also, twelve Dwelling-houses, including the proprietor's,
which is of brick, conveniently arranged, with a store attached,
also of brick. Each dwelling (two of which are stone) has an
ample garden convenient to tiie house.
A sufficiency of land will be included with the above proper-
ty amply to secure the water-right to the purchaser, and afford
a portion to cultivate and a sufficiency of fuel for his use.
The machinery and premises, generally, have recently un-
dergone a thorough repair, under the subscriber's inspection,
at the expense of several thousand dollars.
The expense of delivering manufactured goods in Baltimore
is less than one-quarter cent per pound.
Taking into consideration the healthy location of this proper-
ty, permanency of the. water-power, and facility of obtaining
factory hands, in connexion with the great advantage to be de-
rived from making payment to the hands almost exclusively in
store goods, it may justly be considered one of the most eligi-
ble for manufacturing purposes in the State.
Persons disposed to view the premises can do so by calling
on the subscriber, at Triadelphia-post office Unity, Montgom
ery county, Md.
The property may be had a great bargain, as the proprietor
is determined to dispose of it.
Terms of sale One-fourth cash, the balance in four equal
instalments at one, two, three, and four years, with interest
from the day of sale; the credit payments being satisfactorily
In connexion with the above property is a valuable Farm--
the entire tract, including the mill seat, being about 280 acres.
About 100 acres of the above tract is woodland, the whole be-
ing well watered, and fencing in good order. The soil of this
farm is extensively fertile, and well adapted to the application
of lime and plaster. From four thousand to five thousand bush-
els of lime have been applied with admirable effect. Inex-
haustible quarries of limestone being within four miles of the
farm, a lime kiln on the premises, and an abundance of fuel at
hand, the facilities of obtaining !ime are such that it can he ap-

This estate lies in Phillips coonly, in the State of Arkansas,
and issituated in Walnut bond, on i!'e Mississipoi vei, twen
ty-five miles above the 'owi of He!ena-said to b1)he highest
river land in that region ofcountry. It was voon this land that
the neighbors around drove their cattle to get foo', and to save
them from tbe high waters of the yee 1828. There are six
hundred acres cleared, and a portion of i, has been cultivated
in corn two years, which hae put it' i excellent condition for
cotton the present year; for the growth of which the soil is
peculiarly well adapted. The improvements are, an Overseer's
house, a first-rate Horse Mill, and filieen good quarters for ser-
vants. The clearing on the rest of the 'ard is far easier, (the
worst having been gone through,) being !ess timbered, and most
ofthet Ash, which is rendered v y vaouable for its ready sale
at a well-located wood-yard, where several thousand cords may
be sold during the year. The Negroes were settled on the land
in the autumn of 1836, and are now considered acclimated.
Out of the hundred, there are seventy-six working hands,
young, strong, and healthy, nearly equally divided as re-
gards sexes. Among them are carpenters, shoemakers, and
several good house servants. They are said, by judges, to com-
pare with any lot of Negroes that have ever been sent to the
Southern country. They have one great advantage over most
Negroes, a desideratum seldom to be met with in so large a
number, viz. that they have not been collected from various
places, but are in families, andhave been raised together.
A FINE ESTATE IN PRINCE GEORGE'S
FOR SALE.-I will sell, at private sale, my Brooke-
field farm, formerly owned by John Duvall, Esq, of Prince
George's county, containing rather upwards of 600 acres.
This estate is unquestionably one of the best ol its size in the
county It lies about three miles from the Patuxent river, At
Nottindham, is in an excellent state of cultvation, and capable
of producing from 80 to 100 hogsheads of tobacco annually, with
corn and other smail grain in proportion. The fields cultivated
this yeal have been seeded this fall with white wheat and rye,
and there is nothing to prevent the purchaser from making a
full crop the first year he takes possession, which may be as
soon after the first of next January as he pleases. It is under
good enclosures, is well watered, has abundance of timber, and
a large growth ofyoung chestnut.
Between four and five miles from this estate, I have upwards
of 400 acres of thickly wooded lanl, on which there is the
greatest abundance of firewood. log stuff, and timber. One-
half of this land will be given to the purchaser of Brookefield
without charge. The road to it is almost level, and my teams
go from the farm twice a day in the winter time, and return
There is a large and handsome dwelling-house on the estate,
which has never been quite finished, and otlier buildings ne-
cessary for the use of the farm.
If this estate is not sold before Monday, the 16th of Decem-
ber next, I will, on that day, offer it at pu lic sale, on the pre-
mises, if fair, if not, the next fair day ; where, on the same day,
if the land be sold, will be also offered to persons residing in
the neighborhood or adjoining counties 8 or 10 likely young
Negroes, and the stock and farming utensils on the place. Per-
sons wishing to examine the land, or to know the terms of sale,
can be gratified by application to me, at my residence.

CHOICE MISSISSIPPI ALLUVIAL LANDS
No. 1. 5,500 acres on Deer creek, in three different tracts,
commencing in township 19 and ending in township 16, on the
bank of the creek, and running back so as to include the high
and dry cane lands. These lands lie from 6 to 10 miles from
the Mississippi river, 3 miles from a stream which will soon be
made navigable for steamboats throughout the year, and are
chiefly cane prairie.
No. 2. 1,650 acres on Swan river, or Steele's Bayou, a stream
entering the Yazoo near its mouth. This tract lies on both sides
ofthe river, which, with a small expense, can be made naviga-
ble at all seasons of the year, and about four miles from the Mis-
sissippi river. About three-fourths of this land is entirely cane
prairie, and the balance timbered with the best wood in the
No. 3. One other tract on Swan Lake, lying on the bank
thereof, containing 2,500 acres, and within 41 miles of a landing
on the Mississippi river, called Kentucky Bend. This is chiefly
cane land, well timbered.
No. 4. t containing 1,800 acres, situated 4J miles from the
river Mississippi, in the rear of what is called the American
bend, a thickly populated neighborhood. Two thirds of this
land is cine prairie.
No. 5. One other tract on Sunflower river, a stream naviga-
ble for steamboats at all seasons of the- year, containing 1,000
acres, situated in township 16, range 5. It is chiefly cane
No. 6. One other tract on Sunflower river, in township 19,
range 3, containing 1,310 acres, partly cane prairie, and partly
heavily timbered; making in all 13,760 acres.
These lands are situated between latitudes 32 and 33 north,
are all alluvial soil, very nearly of equal fertility and evenness
of surface, and are entirely exempt from the floods of the Mis-
sissippi, and will be sold under that guaranty. The titles are
derived from the United States by patent. Some of these lands
lie immediately on navigable streams, and the most distant not
more than 5 miles from steamboat navigation. The subscriber
has selected these tracts of land, and now offers them upon the
terms hereinafter mentioned, because they constitute a body of
land not surpassed by any in the known world, either in point
of fertility, beauty of surface, or convenience to navigation.
Much the largest portion of them is cane prairie, and thinly tim-
bered, so that a force of 20 hands will be able to open a planta-
tion of 1,000 acres in the fall of the year, by cutting down and
burning the cane so as to have a plantation in the spring to ope-
Being desirous of having these lands put in cultivation as soon
as practicable, the subscriber offers them to slave-owners, desi-
rous of opening cotton plantations, upon the following terms and
1st. He will give the use of a tract, not exceeding 2,000
acres, for the term of three years, gratis, to any slave-owner
who will work thereon not less than 20 hands, not restricting
the tenant to any quantity of land to be put under cultivation.
At the end of three years, if the occupant desires to purchase,
he may have the option to do so at a fair cash valuation of the
land; if not, the subscriber will pay for a cotton gin, should one
be erected on the place, at a fair cash valuation.
2d. The subscriber will furnish, without sale, to any slave-
owner, 3,000 acres of the land hereinbefore described, who will
put thereon not less thlian sixty working hands; and he will
pay in cash one-half of the value of these hands, and will cul-
tivate a cotton plantation on equal shares for the period of six
years, without charge for the use and occupation of the land,
and at tIhe end of the six years the land to be delivered up to
the subscriber, with the improvements thereon; but the whole
estate, as well real as personal, to he subject to purchase by
either of the occupants, at a fair cash valuation, according to
the interest which he may have therein.
3d. The subscriber will furnish plantations, or tracts of land,
from that heretofore described, including any number of acres
that may be desired, to slave-owners, such slave-owners plac-
ingon the lands any number of hands necessary for their culti-
vation, and the subscriber will pay one half of the cash valua-
tion for said slaves, and receive from the owner of such slaves
one-half of the cash valuation fo, the lands so employed; and,
in case the value of the slaves shall amount to more than the
value of the lands, he will pay the difference in cash; and if
the value of the lands shall amount to more th n the value of

The College Infirmary, attached to the College Building,
has been in successful operation for the last eight months, and
furnishes constantly a number of interesting Medical and Sur-
giaal cases, to which the Student has access at all hours.
The College Infirmary, together with the Alms House, Peni-
tentiary, and Armory, (which are all under the charge of two of
the Professors,) will afford the student an opportunity of wit-
nessing the various diseases incident to a Southern climate.
The abundance of materials for Anatomical purposes, and the
reduced price at which they are furnished, will enable the stu-
dent to acquire an intimate knowledge of the anatomy of the
human body, and the use of Surgical instruments.
During the last Winter Course of Lectures, from the number
of Surgical cases admitted into the Infirmary, the Professor of
Su,-gery was enabled to exhibit before the class nearly all the
important Surgical operations upon the living subject; and,
from the growing popularity of the I.firmary, there is reason to
believe that hereafter the Surgical cases in the house will greatly

SORUS MULTICAULIS.-The subscriber, on the
part of the Columbian Silk Association, offers for sale

thousand Morus Multicaulis Trees from the roots of four years
old, five thousand from the roots of two years, and ten thousand

high, and those from cuttings are three and a half and upwards.
They can be seen at any time on the farm, about three miles
north of the C.,pitol, and within the limits of the District.
As the trees are cultivated in poor soil, the ligneous fibres
have become more matured, and can with much greater safety
be relied on than if they were grown in richer soil. The sub-
