'URGICAL Nt)'I'CE.-Tie fellow ine notice of some
new metlhodi of operating for strictures of the male urethra,
mind certain female infirmities, termed in medical language verico-
cagiual fistula, and ununited lacerait:one of time perireion, is ad-
tressed to the afflicted thiriugh the columns of a newspaper, be-
ieving thie information it contains will prove beneficial to them ;
tid thie writer will state that, although the information he thus
eriders is not derived fi'om his own experience and practice as a
urtgeoon, he nevertheless feels the utmost confidence that it will
,ot disappoint or prove the less valinable. Being a medical man
,iniself, he can in some degree appreciate the character of the
operations for efficacy and safety ; asd, in commending them, as
well as the able surgeon who has contrived and repeatedly per-
ii)ried them with undeviating success, to the notice of the afflict-
ed, he trusts that he may be regarded as candid and disinterested
in what lie states.
In every age and country, the treatment of strictures of the male
urethra has been regarded difficult, and extremely uncertain in
ihe amount of curative benefit following from thie plans generally
employed. Many, nay, very many cases have passed under treat-
menrot, and for a lengthened period, without being essentially ben-
efited ; and now and then instances have occurred in which no
good at all has been experienced, and the unfortunate sufferers
iius doomed to drag cut miserable lives. In veicoe-vaginal fistula,
and lacerations of the perintaeum, greater difficulties and unceim-
tainty of success have uniformly been met with, from the modes
if treating ihose terrible infirmities generally adopted by the pro-
fess.on. A very large majority, nay, it might be stated and not
incotreetly that nearly every case has proved incurable upon the
established plans of treating them. Females have been forced,
in consequence of their intractable nature, to drag nut lives of suf-
fering from these infirmities, and not unfrequently, during the
4rcater part of the time, to hide themselves from society, and
even to feel almost that they were loathsf me nuisances in their
,,wn families. When relief lhi been obtained, it has generally
afforded so little benefit as hardly to be felt as relief. And of the
large number of eases treated, the records of surgery can only
iirnish a few examples that reflect credit. Until within a few
ears, the condition of the surgical means for correcting these in-
firmities was pretty much as has been represented by the preced-
i ,tairment. New or improved plans for t. r,-. i;r. i.. ",, .tore
...'. I.1 and uffectually were then demand..t ; .i-.1 i *iT. uri the
writer infinite satisfaction in being able to state that the desiderata
live been fully supplied by our distinguished countryman, Dr.
METTANER, of Virginia. Perhaps in no department of surgery
have greater improvements been made than in contriving modes
firtreating the three inlirmitis already named. For some six
or seven yeats, Dr. METTANER has treated these affections uni-
foibrily successfully; and the writer of this notice, an early and
itimate friend of the Doctor, has taken it upon himself, without
lhis knowledge orapprobation, toannounce the fact to the afflicted,
and to commend him to their notice in the treatment of such
cases, as well as in all others requiring skill im' good judgment.
With ait view of inspiring confidence within the fliceted, and at the
same time to show that thie writer has not been led away by his
iat tialities as a friend in making the preceding communication,
he will state that hlie has very lately witnessed an exceedingly in-
teresting ease of stricture, complicated i;h numerous and exten-
sve fistula of the petritroum and seratum, successfully treated by
Dr. METTANER. This ease was seetn,an-d particularly examined,
by the writer, before it passed into the Doetor's hands and after
iis core, and he declares that a i-ore unpromising one he has nie-
ver witnessed, nor has a more gratifying opportunity ever been
uffoided him of beholding the complete triumph of -cience and
skill in this noble department uf the healing art than its cure pre-
sented. Many extremely bad eases of this disease have been
treatly equally successfully by the Doctom ; indeed, he has not
failed in a single ease since lhis present mode of tieaing stric-
tures was adopted. In a conversation with Dr. M. a short time
since, he stated that, if patients laboring under these affections
would conform to the few restraints necessary to give proper effi-
cacy to the operation, a failure could not Dossibly result; and that
his experience justified h-m in guarantying cures in every case,
oven the most unpromising. In the treatment of verico-vaginal
fistula and lacerations of the peinmeum, the writer is warranted in
satming that Dr. M.'s success is without a parallel in this country,
as he has cured perfectly three cases of the former and three
cases of the latter infirmity. These affections, the Doctor thinks,
are cirabule in nearly every case, as nine have likely ever occur-
red of more unpromising characters than some successfully treat-
t-d by him. When it is recollected that very few eases of these
umiost afflictive infirmities, out of the large number known to have
.cemrred, are ever cured, too much praise cannot be awarded Dr.
Meitaner for the valuable improvement le has comtmributed towards
their mome successful treatment In closing this notice, lhIe wri.
icr will say, if thie information lie has presented shiall be the

The Observateur of Brussels gives the following account
of the Navy of Holland:-
The navy in commission is composed of 9 frigates, of
which 3 are used as uI-l-,ii,[. 9 corvettes, 1 of which is
used as a naval-school, I-' hl.%;, 1 of which also is a naval-
school -, 25 gun-sloops, 4 armed steamers, 2 transports, and a
demonstration-ship attached to the naval institution of Me-
demblick. The vessels not in commission are 8 ships of the
line, of which 5 are finished, and 3 building; 12 frigates, of
which 5 are finished, and 7 are building ; 9 corvettes, of which
4 are finished, 2 are building, and 3 are employed as hospital
ships; 9 brigs, of' which 4 are finished, and 5 are building;
and 68 gun-sloops. The total, therefore, is 8 ships of the
line, 21 frigates, 15 corvettes, 21 brigs, and 95 gun-sloops.
The crews in active service amount to 5,000 men; the offi-
cers of the fleet are 472 in number. The number of marines
in the different ports is 383. The shipwrights and others em-
ployed in building and fitting out, at Amsterdam, Willem-
sord, Rotterdam, Helvoetsluys, and Flushing amount to
2,098. The budget of the navy is 5,250,000 Dutch florins.
The Dutch have not one three-decker, and their largest ships
of the line are of 84 guns. The officers are composed of 3
vice-admirals, 7 rear-admirals, 23 full-captains, 40 lieutenant-
captains, 8"2 full-lieutenants, 172 lieutenants of the second
class, 79 midshipmen, and 66 surgeons."
Advices from Algiers, of 8th instant, state that the Arabs
made a bold attempt on the night of the 1st and morning of
the 2d, some of them having penetrated the Sahel, avoided
the French posts, and come up to the very gates of Algiers,
where, about one in the morning, they set fire to some ricks
of hay close to the gate of El Babazoun, and an immense
pile of building-wood kept there. The conflagration was
immediately perceived, and all the authorities and troops turn-
ed out. The ricks and wood were consumed. A large sta-
ble near the gate was also burnt, but 100 horses in it were
fortunately saved. The total damage was estimated at from
150,000fr. to 200,C00fr. Some of the native inhabitants of
the environs came to look on, but would not assist in putting
the fire out. A strong guard was posted next day at the
spot ; but front that time no further accident had occurred.

MISERIES OF MANAGEMENT.-The father of the late Sir
Watkin Williams Wynn was a great patron of the arts, and
so fond of theatrical amusements that he built a theatre for
the diversion of himself and friends at Wynnstay, in North
Wales. On one occasion Austin, the actor, then manager
of the Chester Theatre, was requested by Sir Watkin to su-
perintend the *..- ;r., up of a favorite comedy, which was to
be acted entirely by amateurs, most of whom were noblemen
and ladies of rank. A day was fixed for the performance,
anri, as a matter of course, a rehearsal was called in the
morning. Sir Watkin and Austin were at their post mak-
ing the necessary preparations to give effect to the play.
When all was ready, Clear the stage," said Sir Watkin,

The acknowledged inferiority of the Irish fisheries to the
Scotch and English is not to be ascribed to any undue pref-
erence shown to the latter, but to the difference in the means
and facilities with which they are severally conducted. The
Irish are far behind their competitors in the size and con-
struction of their boats, in the quality and supply of the re-
quisite gear and tackle, and in the skill and training of the
persons they employ. Their exertions are also, in many
places, cramped and restricted by absurd regulations and by-
laws amongst themselves. What wonder, then, if, with
these disadvantages, they fail of success
But let these defects be remedied, and Ireland may drive

Mr. HOLTON : A speech by Mr. Stanly, of this State, on
the Expenditures of this Mint, has, by the liberality of some
of my political opponents, been printed in a pamphlet form
at this place, this week, with a view to influence the ap-
proaching election.
To the slightest observer, it is apparent that the whole of
this speech is made with bad temper; I shall show that much
of it is composed of misrepresentation, and some of its state-
ments positively false.
It is an old saying, that Falsehood travels the rounds
while Truth i1 putting on his boots." But this answer was
unavoidably delayed, to procure some official information on
the subject.
The basis of the speech is founded on a document from
the Register of the Treasury, and vouchers filed in the
Treasury Department at Washington. The document is
truly quoted by Mr. Stanly, and is as follows-(Doc. 189,
25Lh Cong. 3d Sess.:)
"Annual expenses of the Branch Mint at Charlotte, N. C.
exclusive of the buildings, machinery, enclosing grounds, appa-
ratus, tools and fixtures, agreeably to the resolution of the House
of Representatives of the 4th February, 1840 :
1837. Officers and clerks $10466 66
Wastage of gold and contingent expenses 5,600 00
Compensation to laborers 1,500 00
$17,466 66
1838. Officers and clerk ..- 7,000 00
Wantage of gold and contingent expenses 5,400 00
Compensation to laborers 3,600 00
$16,000 00
Register's Office, February 6, 1839.
T. L. SMITH, Register."
The following correspondence between the Register and
myself (which are all the letters that ever passed on the sub-
ject) will materially explain this document, and do away
much of the impression and untrue inferences of Mr.
Stanly :
Charlotte, N. C. July25, 1840.
Sin : In Doc. H. R. No. 189, 25th Cong. 3d Sess. a memoran-
dum appears, signed by you, dated July 6th, 1839, agreeably to
the resolution of the House of Representatives of 4th February,
1839, in which you Nay, 'Annual Expense of the Branch Mint at
1837. Officers and clerk $- 10,466 66
1838. Same 7,000 00
The amount appropriated in 1837 and 1838, for their salaries,
was $6,000 for each year.
I received in 1837, upon various requisitions made by me, viz.
March 9 500
June 11-t 1 500
September 30 1,600
December 30 1,.5 i0
-- $5,000

Mr. Stanly's assertion is, that in 1837 there was paid 1i6
salaries to officers and clerk $10,466 66. He knew that
this was not true, for he had before him the receipts of those
officers and clerk for that very year, in amount less than five
thousand dollars.
In regard to the item of" wastage of gold," much was said.
The assayer, melter, and refiner, have published a statement
which must satisfy the most captious and fault-findirg. This
article I never saw until in the public prints. It shows the
fact, which I knew to be true, that there was no wastage of
gold in 1837, because there was no coinage; that the whole
wastage for 1838 and 1839 was very inconsiderable, and that
this matter is legally placed beyond my control; and as the
article states, any charge of unnecessary waste falls directly
upon the melter, refiner, ahd coiner."
But the chief burden of complaint is some trees purchased
with the Government funds. In decorating the grounds and
edifice, which was located in a barren oldfield, I ih.u.liit that
I but faithfully discharged my duty. The ..uldD._-j and
grounds cost the United States large sums of money. It
is visited as a part and parcel of the national property, by
not only our own citizens, but by Europeans of science and
character. I pity any man's heart who does not wish that his
nation, through her public institutions, should appear respect-
able and dignified. But the expenditure is made; no similar
is or will ever be necessary. If I erred, I hope that it is not
an unpardonable error, and in the idea of Burke, I trust
"something may be pardoned to the spirit of patriotism."
The speech quotes a bill for paper, inkstands, and pen-
knives purchased for the use of the Mint."
These, in Mr. Stanly's opinion, are large items, for with
them he occupied the attention of the congregated wisdom of
the nation. Can the public correspondence and accounts be
kept without these essentials I There were three penknives
in the bill named, and they were given out to tile three offi-
cers of the mint for their respective desks. These large items
will be considered very little things by the I, jlr,-,.s portion
of the community; but they should recollect I hat Mr. Stanly
is a very little man, and Goldsmith has beautifully told us that
These little things are great to little men."
Did this scrupulous little member of Congress refuse the
knife given to him and piid for by the United States 7 Hvs
he refused the various other perquisites, such as "satin post
gilt-edge paper," fancy sealingwax, books, &c., which Dr.
Petrikin, of Pennsylvania, asserted on the floor of Congress
last session exceeded in value the pay of a member I If he
did receive these perquisites, what a consistent little jewel he
is! Brother," cast the beam out of thine own eye."
But the speech further complains of some purchases for
fixtures and furniture, and states that it never was designed
by Congress to attach a dwelling house to the establishment,
and adduces the act of Congress of 1835to prove the position.
Now I here take issue with the gentleman, and will show his
error. Not only the act of 1835, as quoted, establishing the
mint, was passed, but by the act of 1837 there were seven
thousand dollars specially appropriated for enclosing the
grounds of this Mint, for repairing a building on the lot, and
for outhouses." This was specifically appropriated on the
estimate that it was for the outhouses to be established to the
Superintendent's dwelling. See act of Congress of 1837,
page 55 Why did not Mr. Stanly quote al-o this latter
law'I Why suppress a material part I Congress as much
intended one as the other to be the law. Then if Congress
did appropriate money for a dwelling and outhouses for thj
Superintendent, certainly such furniture and fixtures as are
necessary and proper for the building was a proper and judi-
cious expenditure. The above amount expended, as shown
in the bills, does not exceed $500. It is public property, and
while in my care shall be safely preserved and faithfully trans-
mitted whenever the Government shall desire it. The arti-
cles which are in the house, and of private use and comfort,
are paid for by myself. If they are extravagant, neither Mr.
Stanly nor the Government has ever paid one cent for them,
although he untruly intimates otherwise. For, in a letter to
the Raleigh Register of the 2d of June last, he states that
even my table selt was paid for by the United States." It
is true that, in the accounts, there is salt paid for, but every
one acquainted with science knows that salt is an essential
ingredient in the separation of .1d1 Ind silver, and is much
used by the melter and refiner .r ihi. purpose. It can satis-
factorily be proved that not one particle of salt ever charged
to the United States was ever even carried to my apartmenUt,
much less used for my personal benefit. Had Mr. Stanly
looked at the account of the other minis, he would have seen
similar charges; and had he known of what he was talking,
or had he ever known me personally, he never would have
said that this salt was for my private benefit. I commend to
him in future the remarks of Fielding, that a man generally
talks better when he knows what he is talking about."
Mr. Stanly is pleased to say, but little skill is required
to conduct all the coinage done at Charlotte." Had he been
as careful to examine all the documents of the nation as lie
is anxious to misrepresent some of them, he would have dis-
covered that this Branch of the Mint has already coined
more than three hundred thousand dollars, ($300,000,) all of
the produce of North Carolina, and that the annual expense
is less than $12,000. This Mint has already gone through
its probationary state in the heavy outfits incident to its es-
tablishment ; the officers and men are all at their posts ; the
machinery is in perfect order ; and materials laid in for the
year in advance. It indisputably acts as a direct encourage.
ment to the mining interests of our State, and while it thus
tends to expand her resources, it adds to the amount of pre-
cious metals in the commercial world. But, if Mr. Stanly
wishes with a parricidal hand to destroy this the almost only
institution that shows that our native State belongs to the
Federal Family of the Union, I do not envy his feelings.
I do not complain of Mr. Stanly. As a member of Con-
gress he had a right diligently to inquire and true present-
ment make" of all public officers. As one of the r- ,,..l in-
quest of the nation, he has presented his bill: i, i- .r my
countrymen as jurors to say whether his charges are proved
or just. How far party malevolence or personal spleen has
led him, his own conscience must decide. I shall not con-
descend to bandy the persona- epithets which he has indulg-
ed in. I shall be content to place myself right in this behalf.
I have tried to discharge my duty, and I believe I have suc-
ceeded. I have no other claim to confidence or support, nor
have I any line of parentage to depend on for fame, fortune,
or character. To me, then, good name is "the immediate
jewel of the soul." This is my apology for presenting the
truth to the Public, and truth will always prevail: Ilt
greatest friend is time; its greatest enemy, prejudice; and
its constant companion, humility."

This document was the basis of Mr. Stanly's statement in the
House of Representatives, that the officers and clerk received
more money in 1837, though the Mint was in operation but one
month of the year, than they did for the whole of 1838.'
This is not true. If the amount, as you state, was drawn in
1837, it was not drawn by me, nor was it appropriated to the pay-

"SIR : Enclosed is a list* of the warrants drawn on the Trea-
sury of the United States and recorded in the books of this Office,
under the head of salaries, and of the officers and clerk of the
Branch Mint at Charlotte, during the years 1837 and 1838. The
warrant for $466 66 was issued in favor of Robert M. Patterson,
on an account settled at the Treasury, for expenses incurred by
him for the Branch Mint at Charlotte. That for $5,000 was issued
on your letter of the 4th October, 1837, requesting that amount
'for the purpose of paying tie incidental ex,enses of this Branch
Mint,' and was charged, as also the warrant in favor of Mr. Pat-
terson, to the appropriation of $15,000, under the act of3d March,
1835, entitled 'An act to establish Branch Minis of the United
States,' for the SALARIES, wages, allowances, and incidental ex
penses of said Branch Mints.
I am respectfully, sir, your obedient servant,
It is here seen that in the year 1837, instead of ($10,466
66) ten thousand four hundred and sixty-six dollars and sixty-
six cents, there was spent actually less than half that sum,
and that the Director of the Mint spent at Philadelphia a
portion of it for this Mint, and the balance was appropriated
" to the incidental expenses of this Branch Mint." What
these incidental expenses were is shown in the vouchers;
and were for the transportation of heavy machinery and erec-
tion thereof, the hire of artisans to erect the melting furnaces,
the purchase of material, and other necessary expenses. But
This list is as set forth in the foregoing letter, with the excep-
tion ofa warrant issued 1837, July 14, No. 6016, in favor ofR. M.

The great natural energy of General JACKSON, combined
with his ignorance of the great interests of the country, pe-
culiarly exposed him to the selfish arts and impudent in-
fluence of the demagogues who surrounded him.
I am disposed to think that his mind is naturally honest,
sincere, and candid. But I do not believe that he ever seri-
ously looked into the solemn duties of his station as Pre'i-
dent of the United States. I think, too, he possesses a cer-
tain generosity of character and great ardor of a certain kind
of friendship. But he has not enlargement of soul. I do
not say he has not energy of soul, or warmth of soul ; but he
has not enlargement of soul. HIe has narrow and bitter
personal and political prejudices, which, whilst he does more
than justice to his friends, lead him to be wholly destitute of
justice to his enemies or opponents, both in private and pub-
lic life. With all his warmth of soul, he has great coldness
of soul-that is, he lacks, totally, that distinguishing charac-
teristic of true greatness of soul- magnanimity.
But the prime and principal ground of the corrupt elec-
tion, and the reckless Administration of General JACKSON,
was that vile crew of DEMAGOGUES who were continually
about him, and who flattered his ignorance and his energy,
of which latter quality he was extremely vain, until they
brought him fully into their service and into the furtherance
of their views. They paid him in sycophancy, and he allow-
ed them to carry on their system of PROScRIPTION" and
"sPOILS."-It was theirs.
Yes; this was primarily and mainly their work. General
JACKSON himself sought no spoils." His disposition was
too lofty for this-he left this for the dregs of human nature-
for that selfish and unfeeling SPOILS PARTY," who were
ready to "proscribe" every virtuous and patriotic citizen
from office-to turn them and their wives and their little
ones into the streets, whilst they, treading in the wine-press
of a loathsome surfeit, celebrated the orgies of as false a liber-
ty as was ever mouthed by an agrarian loafer. With all the
penetration and energy of character of General JACKSON,
the SPOILs PARTY" made a TOOL of him, and battened on
his influence until the liberties of the country became soiled,
and many of the principal interests of the Public exhibited
the aspect of blight and decay.


We copy the following interesting article from
the St. Louis Gazette of the 21st ult. :
The two cities of the United States which are progressing
most rapidly in population and wealth, at the present time, in
proportion to their size, are undoubtedly Boston and St.
ouis, one in the Eastern, the other in the Western section
of the Union. Far many years-from 1800 to 1830-Boston
was lo-ing ground, in the race for greatness with New York,
Philadelphia, and Baltimore; but about the year 1830 a new
era dawned on that city, through the instrumentality of its
enterprising capitalists, which has turned the tide strongly in
its favor. At that time, the first railroad was constructed on
one side of the city, and the first steam-power loom establish-
ment erected on the other. From that time to the present,
Lowell has increased in population from 200 to 20,000, and in
wealth from $100,000 to 20,000,000. The cotton manufac-
tures of Lowell, and the hundred other manufacturing vil-
lages in New England, have given a stability to the trade of
Boston unknown to any other city in the Union.
Massachusetts, formerly exporting, it was said, nothing but
granite and ice, now produces manufactures valued at ninety
millions of dollars per annual, a large part of which centres
at Boston, as a place of distribution to all parts of the Union.
At a later period than that first mentioned, her far-seeing
citizens became convinced that, although she had no river
likethe Hudson, the Delaware, or the Susquehanna, tobring
to her wharves the products of the boundless and fertile West,
yet that an iron pathway might be laid along her mountain
gorges, over which a steam-engine with a train of cars could
move at the rate of thirty miles per hour, taking the produce
of the lakes at the outlet of the New York Canal, and land-
ing it at Boston in less time than it can be delivered at New
York. About one-half of this road is completed, and the
while will be finished within twelve months from this time.
This road will cost not far from seven millions of dollars.
It is calculated to support an engine of fourteen tons weight,
and to carry 1,000 barrels of flour in a single train of cars ten
miles an hour. It is estimated that when finished, flour can
be transported from Albany to Boston, 201 miles, for 30 cents
per barrel. Two thousand men are now at work on this road,
in some sections, both night and day. The capitalists of Bos-
ton have also contributed largely to the funds required for
laying down railways fromAlbany to Buffalo, betweenwhich
places there will soon be a continuous line completed. The
same enterprise and capital will, ere many years shall have
elapsed, continue the same line across Ohio, Indiana, and Illi-
nois, to St. Louis, in case the funds required for the work are
not furnished by the States on the route;
St. Louis owes its present prosperity to neither manufacto-
ries nor railroads, for it has scarce a dollar expended in
Its progress has been accelerated mainly by the hundreds
of thousands of immigrants who have overspread the prai-
ries of Missouri, Illinois, Wiskonsin, and Iowa-who have
come here for the sale of their agricultural and mining pro-
ductions, and for the purchase of merchandise. The increase
of this city in wealth and population, within the past ten
years, is scarcely paralleled. In 1831 the population of the
city and suburbs was estimated at 6,000. It is now not far
from 30,000, and rapidly increasing. The number of build-
ings recently commenced is very great, and the value of those
in course of completion will exceed a million and a half of
The trade between this city and Boston is greater, and the
connexion more intimate, than is generally imagined. The
various staple articles of export from Boston, including do-
mestic goods, boots and shoes, oil, candles, &c. required for
this market, and which are forwarded from here for the up-
per country, cannot fall short of two millions of dollars.
We shall close these remarks with a comparative state-
ment of the value of Western productions shipped from New
Orleans to New York and Boston.

In laying before our readers the results of the
Presidential Election, as they successively reach
us from the more distant States, it has become
little else than the announcement of successive
triumphs of the Whig cause. We give below
some samples of the manner in which the Re-
publican Candidates have swept over the great
States of the West. Surely never before in the
history of nations were the rulers of any free
State so signally rebuked and repudiated by their
countrymen, as are the miserable men to whose
hands, in an evil hour, were entrusted the desti-
nies of this Republic. God grant that it may
prove a lesson and a warning to their successors
in all time to come !

Nothing yet definitive from this State.

SILK IN TEXAs.-A correspondent of a New
Orleans paper mentions that multicaulis trees
enough have been imported into Galveston to
stock the whole country. Some were sold, some
given away, and some died away.

ARMY AND NAVY CHRONICLE.-We are requested to state
that the suspension of this paper for a few weeks past has
been occasioned by disappointment in the receipt of remnittan-
ces long since expected, and the difficulty of procuring money
in Washington. It is hoped that the friends of the work will
continue to give it their aid, and that those who are indebted
will be made sensible of the importance of prompt remit-
An early resumption being anticipated, papers that exchange
with the Chronicle are solicited to continue the favor.

THE BUNKER HILL MONUMENT.-We have the pleasure
of announcing, says the Boston Courier, that contracts for
completing the Monument of Bunker Hill were yesterday
signed by the contractor, Mr. JAMES S. SAVAGE, on the one
part, and by the President of the Monument Association on
the other. It is specified that the monument shall be com-
pleted agreeably to the original design by the first of October,
1843, for the sum of $43,000. Mr. SAVAGE will commence
operations at the quarry immediately, and will begin to lay
the stone as early as possible in the ensuing spring.

A REBUKE INDEED.-New York has put her veto upon the
re-election of MARTIN VAN BuREN. Four years ago, she
gave him a majority of 28,000 ; and now, after a taste of his
quality as the Chief Magistrate of a nation, this same New
York has decided against him by more than ten thousand
votes. This reversal of judgment is worthy of special re-
mark and notice. It is an eloquent lesson to public men, and
comes as a powerful voice of warning to all who would sac-
rifice right for expediency, or sink the character of the en-
lightened statesman in that of the grovelling partisan striving
for the spoils. For fifty years, during which the present form
of Government has existed, this is the first instance in which
a candidate for the Presidency, much less an actual Presi-
dent, has failed to obtain the vote of his own State In a
judgment upon his measures, such as this, there can be no
mistake. From such a condemnation there can be no appeal.
As it is the first instance of such condemnation-reluctant,
but decisive-let us hope it may be the last which evil coun-
sels and bad government may render necessary. Let us hope
that a parent State will never again be constrained to render
judgment upon a recreant son, and that the case of Mr. VAN
BUREN, the head of the spoils Administiation of 18410, will
live in the memory of aspiring politicians as an example to

A very large and delighted number of Whigs was gather-
ed at the Log Cabin on Monday evening last, and never
have we witnessed such joy and enthusiasm. Mr. LEE, a
distinguished Whig of Baltimore, and once one of our cher-
ished f low-townsmen, was called to the stand, and for up-
wards of an hour enchained the meeting with a strain of im-
passioned eloquence, which could not be surpassed. He
dwelt on the extent and brilliancy of our victory, and most
justly rebuked and denounced the principles and practices of
the present defeated Administration. His reference to the
part borne by CLAY, WEBSTER, RIVES, and others, in the late
glorious contest, was beautiful arid touching; while the alter-
nate wit and sarcasm of his admirable address called forth re-
peated cheers; and the appeal he made to the People of this
long-suffering District was responded to with heart and soul
by all.
On the whole, the feelings and pleasure of the meeting were
at the highest point of enjoyment; and it is doing but slight
justice to Mr. LEE to say that his speech inspired the warm-
est sentiments of patriotism, and placed him high among the
most eloquent of the land. t

FtIRE.-About four o'clock yesterday morning the alarm of
fire was given, which proved to be in the steamboat Empress,
bound for St. Louis, and ready to start. She was lying at
the foot of Gravier street-the steamboats Rienzi, Oceans,
&c. lying in the same tier. It was thought advisable to cut
the Empress adrift, which was accordingly done. She then
drifted with the current, and was urged by the wind towards
the opposite side of the river, and unfortunately brought up
alongside of the steamboat Monarch, (recently launched, af-
ter having undergone thorough repairs,) and we regret to
state that in a few minutes the Monarch caught fire, and
burned to the water's edge. The fire then communicated to
the hulk of the Boonslick, which was also consumed ; and,
by the greatest dint of exertion, the Huma, lying on the stocks
at the yard of Messrs. Harroll & Co. was saved, with but lit-
tle damage to the after-cabin. During the confusion on board
the Monarch, an explosion of gunpowder took place on board
the Empress, from the forward hatch, which materially deter-
red the efforts to save a portion of her cargo. However, we
are happy to state that no injury was sustained by the per-
sons in the immediate vicinity. The hulks were towed down
by the ferry-boat to the flats opposite Slaughter House Point,
and we learn an attempt will be made to save the engines.
We have not learnt how the fire originated.

REAL WHIGs.-An instance of extraordinary zeal in favor
of Harrison and Tyler on the part of two Whig voters of
our city has been communicated to us. John Sinclair and
John Parrot were at work on Tilghman's Island, about 30
miles from Baltimore, for some days previous to the election,
and were prevented from leaving in consequence of having
no means of conveyance to the city. On the morning previ-
ous to the election a sail boat from Baltimore touched at the
Island, and took on board two Locofocos, the boat having, it
is said, been sent down especially f'or them. The two Whigs
solicited a passage on board the boat, but the Locofoco com-
mander positively refused them, notwithstanding five dollars
were offered by each of them for a seat. Determined not to
be prevented, if possible, from depositing their votes, they
procured, on the morning of the election, a small canoe, bare-
ly sufficient to contain the two, and, stepping into their frail
and tender bark, paddled across the bay to Sandy Point, a
distance of seven or eight miles, at the imminent peril of their
lives-from thence they footed it all the way to Baltimore, a
distance of about 35 miles, :, i..:_ ,t 1i, First Ward polls
at half past 5 o'clock, precis.Ij ;,.1 t.... . before the close,
covered with sweat andti dust, when their votes were triumph-
antly deposited for Tippecanoe and Tyler too." Such dle-
votion to correct principles has no parallel in the history of
elections. Mr. Parrot had only arrived at age in October
last, and the vote which hegave on Monday wasconsequent-
ly the first noble act of a grateful and zealous freeman to-
waids one of his country's noblest benefactors.-Balt. Pat.
Extract of a letter froc., P,'i., dated 16th October,
1840: Mr. WHEATON, \lii.-.r ...I the United States in
Berlin, has been in our city for some days ; he is travelling
t,.rough the States of the Germanic Conf-deration, to obtain
a more perfect knowledge of its industry, commerce, arid pub-
lie institutions. Mr. Wheaton is already known as one of
the most distinguished statesmen of his own country, andt has
greatly benefited biv his negotiations with the German Com-
mercial Union. His continued exertiontis to increase com-
merce and friendly relations between the United States of
North America and Germany merit the acknowledgments of
the latter country."
The DUKE OF NEWCASTLE has recently purchased the
estate of Worksop for $1,824,000 ; in consequence of which
he has now a demesne of nearly twenty miles in length.
The old castle of Worksop is to be removed, and to facilitate
this, his lordship proposes to construct a railroad, about half
a mile in length, to the canal which crosses the estate. The
old castle is a fine building, a finished specimen of the pure
Corinthian order. The roof, which was renewed twelve
years since, cost $144,000; and the lead put upon it weighed
about 250 tons. The stone for the t.l.tir,' cost $144,000,
and the oak timber $75,0004). The chimney pieces are esti-
mated to have cost $72,000. There are 200 plate glass win-
dows, and about the same number of solid mahogany doors,

PEDESTRIAN FEAT.-On Monday evening John Townsend,
the celebrated pedestrian who recently accomplished an
arduous six days' task on the Present road, undertook to per-
form, for a benefit, on the bowling green of the High Park
Coffee House, the following feat: To pick up 100 stones, each
a yard apart, with his mouth, and deposit them in a basket
without touching them with his hands; to run a mile; to walk
3 miles forward, andl 3 miles backward ; and finally to run a
hoop two miles; the whole to be accomplished in three suc-
cessive hours. He commenced operations soon after 5 o'clock,
and accomplished the feat with great ease within sixteen
minutes of the prescribed time. He afterwards, by way of
afierpiece, picked up 40 stones in the same manner as before,
in almost 11 minutes. This extraordinary pedestrian is up-
wards of 50 years of age. A vast number of persons wit-
nessed the feat.-London Paper.

Extract of a Letter to the Editors of the Savannah Republican,
received from an Officer of the Florida Army.
By last night's express I am enabled to give you the result
of the conference of the Indians with Gen. ARMISTEAD at
Tampa Bay.
Halleck Tustenugge, Tiger-Tail, and six others, came in
at the appointed time, and, among other things, agreed to meet
the General with 300 of their people at Fort King on the 7th
instant, for the purpose of further negotiations. It is expect-
ed that the two chiefs named will proceed to Washington,
and visit the President in propria persona.
If they should deem it their interest to come in in good
faith, it may end the war, as they probably have it in their
power to dictate terms of peace; but I opine that if the war
is ended only upon the good faith of the Indians, it will last
forever and a day. They are like England on the boundary
question; they will appoint commissioners and negotiate until
doomsday, and until doomsday hold on to the country.
Colonel WORTH, the gallant commander of the Republic's
Own," with two companies, left here a few days since for
Fort King, where he will meet the balance (8 companies) of
his regiment.
On Wednesday afternoon last, from sixteen to twenty In-
dians made their appearance on Colonel HANSON'S plantation,
about two miles from this city, robbing the negroes of all their
blankets and winter clothing. Their intention was to fire the
buildings, and make prize ef the negroes; but some of them
having escaped, and making their way to town, were fallen
in with by one or two gentlemen who had been hunting, and
they pushed on with the intelligence. The quick appearance
of a few persons from town tended to hasten them away with
their plunder, and enabled the negroes whom they had with
them to fall back in the sugar-cane field, and thus escape
them. One Indtian, without luggage, was fired upon, sup-
posed to be Wild Cat, as he left the enclosure without any of
the plundered property. They fired one rifle into the dwell-
ing-house, which nearly wounded the overseer. The pro-
perty taken amounts to a considerable sum. No other da-
Lieutenant BROWN, 3d Artillery, was very promptly on the
spot with eleven men, and remained during the night on
guard, and yesterday morning proceeded, in command of
Lieutenant GRAHAM'S detachmnient of dragoons and his own
command, with Lieutenant WESTCOTT of the Infantry, in
An unfortunate and truly melancholy occurrence took place
at Colonel HIANSON'S plantation at half past two o'clock on
Thursday morning. The sentinels having dliscovered,in two
places, persons approaching, retreated to the house, within
which the small force on the plantation were, and gave the
alarm. Immediately Lieutenant BiOWN, with his men, pro-
ceeded to reconnoitre, as well as the four or five friends who
had offered to remain on the place; and, having been on the
watch for upwards of 30 minutes, they discovered persons
moving quickly up; the sergeant fired, i..,,...!., Lieutenant
GoAI4Ui, of the dragoons, in the arm, oii i-ulh.,g Sergeant
WOLCOTT, of his company. Lieutenant GiRAHAM, it seems,
was approaching with great caution, (he ,,' u.-, at Picolata,
received an express ',f..riri,. him that Indians had been at
the plantation ;) anc i. I'.. i ofthe alarm having taken place
some time previous brought him in collision with the troops
in charge, who were anticipating the approach of the enemy.
At the moment preceding the fire they were heard to spring
their bayonets, which sounded much like the click of cocking
a gun, and it was under these circumstances that the accident
occurred. Fortunately, Dr. BARNUM was one of the gentle-
men who had remained for the protection of the place in con-
nexion with Lieutenant BROWN and 11 men of his company,
and his services were very promptly and beneficially rendered
Lieutenant GRAHAM. Sergeant WOLCOTTr was brought into
the house immediately, but he was dead. Lieut. G.'s wound,
though severe, is by no means of a dangerous character; and
hlie wilt, in a very short time, rejoin his company.
A detachment of Captains MtCKER'S and PELLICER'S
mn)u.nted volunteer force proceeded, on Tuesday last, at day-
light, to Musquito beach. The Indian signs were fresh in
that neighborhood ; and a small party of gentlemen, bunting
at Mala-Compra, discovered such evidences of their proximity
to the enemy that they left for this city.


NEW OtRLEANS, OCT. 28, 1840.
The steam-ship Savannah arrived yesterday, bringing Tex-
as papers to the 22d instant. They contain nothing of parti-
cular interest. General Houston's plan of organizing the mi-
litia, like Mr. Van Buren's, has proved unpopular, and will
riot succeed. Congress assembles on the first Monday in
November. A letter front Houston confirms the intelligence
ofthecapture ofArista, the Central general in Mexico,though
its statements differ somewhat, asto particulars, from accounts
previously received. The settlements on the frontier were
free from Indian depredations.
The papers generally strongly urge upon the Government
the necessity of immediately sending the Navy to sea with
fighting orders. They consider that Mexico will only be
brought to acknowledge the independence of Texas by direct
offensive measures. The Federalists of Campeachy and Yu-
catan are anxious to co-operate with the Texian fleet.

CRIMINAL COURT.-In consequence of the indisposition of
the Hon. Judge DUNLOP, who was unable to preside in our
Criminal Court on Monday and yesterday, the Court was
further adjourned until Tuesday, the 17th instant, whenall
jurors and witnesses are ordered to attend.

ing of this Society, holden at the City Hall last Saturday,
pursuant to public notice, Colonel HENDERSON exhibited some
Mammoth Rohan Potatoes of immense size.

ALARMS OF FIRE.-There have been several alarms of fire,
during the last and present week, originating either in wanton-
ness or the desire to call out the Fire Companies unnecessari-
ly, or from blazing chimneys, which, however alarming in ap-
pearance, were soon extinguished without any serious injury.

Friday night, afire was discovered in the building situated
between Ninth and Tenth streets, on the margin of the Wash-
ington Canal, and occupied by Mr. S. W. Handy as a hat
manufactory. Through timely exertions of the citizens and
fire companies, the flames were soon arrested, and, we are
glad to learn, without much injury to Mr. Handy. Suspicion
having fallen upon a person named John Smith, a journey-
man hatter lately in the employment of Mr. Handy, and
who had been discharged that evening, and had been heard
to make some threats towards Mr. H., Smith was immediate-
ly arrested by T. C. Wilson, constable, and taken before
Justice Morsell, by whom the prisoner, after a proper exami-
nation, was fully committed for trial at the Criminal Court
now in session. We forbear to state the circumstances which
appeared in evidence before the magistrate to criminate the
prisoner, seeing that his trial will take place in a few days,
when we shall again advert to the case.

NEW YORK, NOVzMBEt 9, 1840.
The returns from the interior but swell the
HARRISON majorities, who probably has the State
by nearly 12,000 majority. SEWARD will run be-
hind about 3,000. The victory is complete-Se-
nate, Assembly, and a majority of the members of'
Congress, it is probable, though one district is
unsettled yet. What a disappointment for the
people of the Globe, who so flattered themselves
with hope when they got the first returns !
Gen. HARRISON run ahead of the Whig ticket
in nearly all parts of the State. His majority will
be larger than the real Whig strength.
The steam-packet President, which sailed hence
for Liverpool on the 2d instant with between
sixty and seventy passengers, returned to-day, on
account of a want of coal. Since leaving port
she has experienced a continued gale of wind,
and was compelled to lie to for four days, at the
expiration of which the amount of coal on hand
not being thought sufficient for the voyage, she
put away for New York.
The return of the President will be a serious
disappointment not only to passengers, but to
those who made remittances by her, as the amount
of bills on board for Europe is very large.
A large business has been done at the stock
exchange to-day at a slight advance on Saturday's
prices. Flour is a shade lower to-day; sales have
been made of Michigan at $4 87, and Western at
The British war steamer, commenced some
time since at Chippewa, Upper Canada, for the
Lakes, is nearly completed. She rates, it is said,
eight 18 pound carronades, is 148 feet on deck,
about 400 tons admeasurement, and is fitted with
two 45 horse power low pressure steam engines.
The grates and boilers are arranged expressly for
burning Ohio coal.


NEw YORK, Nov. 9,1840.
A great sensation was created in this city this morning be-
tween 8 and 9 o'clock, by the announcement of the telegraph
that a steam-ship was seen in the offing. The announce-
ment on the telegraph ran thus:
9 o'clock-In the offing a large British steamer, with three
masts, coming in slowly under steam."
The public anxiety was intense to know what steam-ship
it was, as none was due or expected about this time. The
Queen had only been out eight days, and therefore it could
not be her; and some supposed it was the new ship Colum-
bia, whose place was taken by the Britannia. At 10 o'clock
the telegraph had this announcement:
Outside the Hook, the steam-ship President, put back
apparently in distress."
All the mercantile men were running hither and thither to
inquire the cause of her return, and alarm sat on the faces of
all who had friends on board of her. And it was not until
half past eleven that the cause was ascertained from the tele-
graph bulletin, which ran thus :
"Half past 11-President steam.ship, three miles off the
West Bank; returned, with her starboard wheel disabled;
coming up slowly under steam."
What has caused this accident we are yet unable to learn;
although from the recent high tides and heavy gales on the
coast, we have no doubt that she experienced a tremendous
storm, or perhaps a succession of gales and heavy seas.
The President sailed from this city last Monday, with 85
passengers, and $150,000 in specie. Among the passengers
were Mr. Jaudon, Mr. Brown, and Mr. Alsop, all of the U. S.
Bank, who were going out to London to make the final ar-
trangements for the resumption of specie payments by that
bank; andt had made all their calculations relative to mone-
tary matters, based on the belief that the President would ar-
rive out on or about the 16th of the month. This delay will
be productive of sad inconvenience in this respect alone, and
overthrow all the arrangements made in England. Bills will
become due and be protested, and quite a small explosion will
succeed. Many of our most eminent merchants have also
made similar calculations in regard to money matters, all of
which will be overthrown, to thesurprise and derangement of
the mercantile world in England.
Added to all this will be the intense and agonizing excite-
ment produced in other quarters in England by her non-arri-
val. The Acadia left Boston on Sunday, the 1st instant, and
will reach Liverpool next Saturday, with the positive intelli-.
gence that the steamnship President was to follow her next
day, and carrying out the names of many who were to leave
in her. The President will be due in Liverpool next Mon-
day. Bat that d y will pass over, and the day after that, and
the whole week will run by, and yet there will be no trace of
the President. And eyes will grow dim with watching, and
cheeks look pale with fear, and fond hearts ache with agony
fur the supposed loss of all they hlve. For when ten, twelve,
and perhaps fourteen days roll by after she is due, and no
tidings of her reach the shores of England, (for none can
reach until the Patrick Henry arrives on or about the 26th
instant,) the conclusion of a majority will be, that she has
gone to the bottom, with all on board. There will be four-
teen days of intense suspense, and fourteen days is an age in
money matters, commerce, or love.-Herald.
Two o'clock.-All that we can learn is, that she has re-
turned to port for a supply of coal, having encountered tre-
mendous ales from the time she left.
From Monday, the day of sailing, till Saturday at3 P. M.
we understand that she made only three hundred miles.-

This novel and useful invention ensures ani instantaneous
Supply of Clear Filtered Ink, in the cup of the filter, which can
be returned into the inkstand at any moment, where it is secured
from injury, and not affected by the atmosphere. The ink, thus
protected, never thickens or molds, and remains good for any
length of time, in any climate. The process of filtration causes
the coloring matter to be held in suspension; hence the trouble
and incoavenience occasioned by unsuitable ink, generally found
in ordinary inkstands, are completely obviated by the use of the
Filter Inkstand. One of moderate size will contain sufficient ink
for six or twelve mouths' writing.

OVEL INKSTAND.--Aim Englishmian nomed Perry
L- has invented an inkstand which prevents the ink becoming
mouldy or evaporating. He has applied the principle of thie air
pumnp in such a way, that by turning a screw the cup of the ink
stand is instantly supplied wilh pure filtered ink from a reservoir
below, into which reservoir lhe ink iu thie cup descends again
when a reverse turn is given to the screw. On its journey up-
ward it passes through a small sieve of fine silver wire, by which
all impuriuies are excluded. Thie contrivance is ingenious and
works admirably ; giving to thie filter inkstands a manifest supe-
riority over any other kind in existence.-Baltimore Clipper.

many respectable and unsolicited testimonials ci i it.-.:, as a
medicine have been elicited. With all the pleasing qualities of
a glass of soda water, it possesses the active medicinal properties

mendalion for unlicensed quackeries, but we do know of a nos-
trum, approved too by theo Faculty, that cannot be recommended
too highly to the attention of every family during the present
warm weather. It is denominated Butler's Effervescent Mag-
nesian Aperient,' and its medicinal properties are admirably
adapted to the alleviation and removal of the numerous bodily
complaints incidental to thIe summer season. We doubt whether
the whole Pharmuacopcia offers a more innocent and effeciivere-
mredy, or a more pleasant and palatable preventive. Having
seen its virtues tested in cases of severe headache and threatened
cholera morbus, we can conscientiously testify concerning its uti-
lity."-Ed. New York Even. Jour.

l official report of its merits is founded upon twenty years'
experience by Dr. Cuminms, Inspector of Army Hospitals, commu-
nicuted to the discoverer, Sir James Murray :
Tihe Sutiun of Magnesia is found particularly beneficial as a
pleasing sedative and aperient, in all cases of irritation or Acid-
ityof the Stomach, particularly during pregnancy, febrile com-
plaints, infantile disorders, or sea-sickness.
An ounce or two of the Solution speedily removes heartburn,
acid eructations, sourness, or irregular digestions of females andti
In tihe Armiy and Navy, it has been found tocompose the stom-
,ch in a few minutes, after any excess or hard drinking.
The Soluti n is of itself an agreeable aperient, but its laxative
properties can hbe much augmented by taking with it, or directly
ifrer it, a little lemnton juice mixed with sugar and water, or even
Cream of Tartar Tea; in this manner a very agreeable effervescent
draught can be safely taken at any time during fever or lthiiist.
The antiseptic qualities of this Solution, owing to the presence
of so much caibmnic acid, have been funid very valuable in putrid
and other fevers. As a lotion for the mouth, itsweetens the breath,
and tihe Magnesia clears the teeth from tartar.
; For preventing the evolution or deposition of Uric Acid, in
gout or gravel, tho efficacy of the dissolved Magnesia was long
since amuhemuticated by Drs. M'Donnell and Richaildson, and Sir
James Murray.
The Solution has almost invariably succeeded in removing
the fit, spasms, headaches, and gastric coughs to which deli-
cate persons are subject from acids and cruelties oi the stomach
and bowels."

Extract from the Medico-Chirurgical Review for April, 1829,
edited by Dr. JAMEs JOHNSON, Fhysician-extraordinary to the late
King, &c. &e. :
Pellucid Solution of Magnesia.-This veryuseful and ele-
gant preparation we have beett trying for some months, as an Ape-
rient ant acid in dyspeptic complaints, attended with acidity and
constipation, and within very great benefit. It his the advantage
over common Magnesia in being dissolved, and therefore not liable

Potash, on account of its aperient quality, and of its having no ten-

They possess great advantages over the balsams and all liquid
medicines, by being entirely free from smell, and consequently do
notaffect the breath in the least, therebypreventing the possibili-
ty of discovery while using them.
Besides this important advantage, they never cause a sickness
ofthe stomach, and in the early stages ofthe disease they usually
effect a cure in a few days with little regard to diet or exposure.
in the most obstinate stages of the disease, they are equally cer-
