A ever desirous to meet thie wishes of the travelling contumu-
nity, has now the pleasure of informing his friends that he hIas
added about fifty new and airy rooms to his hotel, which he trusts
will enable him to accommodate all who may patronize his house.
From the encouragement lie has received, and from a determine
tion to meet thie views (as f-ar as possible) of his friends, he flatters
himself that old friends will continue, and new ones be indtueced to
ive himn a trial. Its near approximation to the Railroad Depots
ind the several steamboats, the large, airy, and well ventilated
apartments, and healthy location, make it a desirable p ace for
Southern as well as Northern travellers. Respectfully,

It needs but slight forecast to see that your system ofbank-
ruptcy may be any thing but uniform. Ia one district the
judge may well construe your statute so as to authorize him
on the application of a creditor, to render a judgment of bank-
ruptcy upon the publication of twenty days' notice, and with.
out the personal service of any process oni the bankrupt. This
judgment is, by mere operation of law, to divest the debtor of
all his property, and yet is, at the expiration of ten days, to
become final and conclusive. In case the party resides at a
great distance, (extremely definite language this for a statute,)
he is to have, not a longer time to appeal, or take objection to

On the Bill to establish a uniform system of Bank-
ruptcy throughout the United States.

Mr. BIRDSEYE said he had desired to address the com-
mittee some remarks upon this bill, for reasons, to some ex-
ent, specially concerning himself, but not remote from the
merits of the bill. As a general rule, he preferred to act the
art of a listener, and to perform the duty of a silent voter, be-
ng satisfied with debate when he found that the arguments
n which hie would mainly repose his vote had been assigned
by others, or were so apparent that it might be presumed they
ad had their due weight upon the Hlouse. But when he
was called upon to give a vote upon a question of the import-
rnce of this bill, and felt constrained to repose his vote upon
grounds which did inot seem obvious, or to have been brought
o the notice of the committee ; when he found that he differ-
ed with many friends here, for whom he had the highest re-
pect; arid when he might seem to differ with a highly re-
pectable portion of his constituents, he desired to obviate any
misconstruction which might be put on his vote here or else-
where, should he give a silent vote, as well as to bring to the
attention of the committee reasons relating to the merits of the
question which seemed to have been overlooked by others. If
te was in error, he craved the humblest l.. ,.- of debate-
hat of stating his objections, and then 1 L'-.., convinced
of such error by the reasoning of others.
Sir, (said Mr. B.)in the deliberations preliminary tothe adop-
tion of a measure of such importance, where the supposed pop-
ular will is so much relied oni as an argument to influence the
result, I suppose it to be the duty of the Representative to re-
flect truly the opinions of his constituents. I feel bound then to
say,sir, that, :.iih,.,:l h when at home I -rn ......- i ,d|. -;,hli
ny constituents, I can now recall to mind but two conversa-
tions with any portion of my constituents when i ,,.i- t.-',
if a bankrupt law was the subject of remark. In .. .-.i i..--
convtyrsations I was strongly urged to favor the measure. In
he other conversation, which was with intelligent merchants,
the project ,, ,- ,I : .. i -,.., r.1.n- .... Id r... -. T his,
l am bound l r, , .1 .. I i r- j.t.. .,' p1"i .- ar anx-
iety for the measure among mny constituents which had been
brought to my personal notice before I left home to take my
seat ncre. Since I have been here I have received several
petitions in favor of the measure from various portions of my
constituents; also one from Utica, and one from Alton, in Il-
linois. These have all been presented to the House, with the
exception of two, which 1 have had no opportunity to present
since I received them ;, but they will be presented so soon as,
by the rules of the House, they shall be in order. I have
also received and presented to the House the proceedings of
a respectable public meeting in one of th, i ill .i.. ii, coun-
ty, adopting resolutions in favor of the i,.- ., -r. I i1,. much
1 felt bound to say, as well that those constituents as those
other friends at a distance who had made me the organ of
communicating their wishes to the House might understand
that their views had been so presented as to have their due
weight in the disposition of this question. Altogether, sir,
I have probably presented in these forms the views of some
four or five hundred of the people of my county-a county
containing about 60,000 people, and casting at election about
12,000 votes.
But this might seem, however, an imperfect if not an unfair
representation of the popular opinions of my constituents. I
feel bound, then, to go further, and to express to this commit-
tee what I believe would be the opinions of that portion o
my constituents who have not spoken on thie question. It ii
obvious that t'-.ey are either not greatly agitated with the sub
ject, or that they have such reliance on our ability to dispose
of it i;.. i., that a very great proportion of them have nol
thought proper to importune us on the subject. I presume ii
has been with the great body of my constituents as it has beer
with we-that, feeling a strong desire that the unfortunate
might be relieved, I had hoped that some measure of the kind
might be so perfected as to effect the object in view, and upor
which we could agree. But when Iconie to examine the pro
ject submitted to me, to study its details, and to think oat its
actual operation upon the business of the country, I lind that
the system for a general bankrupt law now submitted to us is
liable to objections which had not before occurred to me
Knowing, as I believe I do, the general i,n. It,.. ,,:, and kind
heartedness of my constituents, I presume that, on the genera
question, as it had occurred to me-and as I believe has only
been considered by the country-a great majority of my con
stituents, if the question were propounded to them in the gen-
eral form ot tile petitions before us, would probably express
themselves, in the language of those petitions, in favor of"a
general bankrupt law for rh .i..iJ ,.,.i" unfortutnae debtors
who shall surrender all their property, andi ensuring a just
distribution of the same among their creditors." If, then, i
be deemed material to ascertain the popular opinions of tie
country on this measure, and that of my constituents be deem
id material, you may consider theirs as before you, for our
mutual consideration in f r..,i. ._ our judgment on this meas-
ure. I truit, then, that in. . i. I of this project, however ar
dently lie my have espoused it, will impute to me any design
to misrepresent ihe will of my constituency.
But of the popular (,pinions conveyed to this ,House on this
subject it may be remarked that there seemed to be a remark
able identity of thought amone the petitioners; for, whether
thie petitions came to ws from Utica, from Onoindaga, or front
Illinois, the thoughts oif the petitioners seemed to be cast ii
the same mould, for I observe that they are expressed in the
same words. This circumstance was, however, explained by
observing that the petitions were lilhographed copies from the
same block. Some will undoubtedly persuaethemselvestha
a flood of such petitions are to be regarded as the spontaneous
voice ofan intensely anxious People, while others will reganrd
them as but the answers of the echo to a prompting emanating
from one point. This was undoubtedly an innocent way o
prompting, if not of manufacturing, public opinion i but it wa
a circumstance that might be i. '-.r.l..| in estimating the
., i- *.i i., I opinion in faior it,h. measure, and which
ir.. i, 1. I., I ,! to be so earnest and importunate. Of thie
public opinion conveyed to us one thing further may be safely
said that, if not artificial and conceited, it was at least, ii
form, very safe and judicious. Like the opinion in favor ofa
judicious tariff, it seemed to be put in such anrt indefinite form
as to be very generally acceptable. To such general opinion
it would seem captious to object; but it is this general opinion
only upon which my cons'ituents or the country have ex
pressed themselves; and I fear, if not the only opinion con
sidcred in cornmitlete, it will here be allowed to supersede al
others. Other gentlemen who have addressfe.d you have made
strong appeals to your sympathies, and described in glowing
colors the scenes of misery which this law was to relieve
They have even assumed to speak as with an ascertained sta
tistical accuracy of the numbers of insolvent, of the average
numbers of their families anti defendants, and ofthe average
amount of income which their productive employment would,
annually add to the wealth of society; and, assuming tha

the reasoning attempted, the premises assumtnd, and the con
clusions arrived at, are obviously but the productions of air
ardent imagination, and entirely too extravagant to be relic,
on as a safe guide in the ycave business of legislation.
I shall content myself with taking a more humble view o
this measure; shall examine its details, and ascertain, if
can, how far its provisions are calculated to work well.
It is to be observed that all jurisdiction which you can con
fer upon the subject of bankruptcies, must, of necessity, be
vested in the courts of the General-Government. By thi
constructions which have been put on the Constitution, w.
cannot vest any jurisdiction in the courts of a State in ac
cordance with this constitutional principle, you propose to ves
the jurisdiction only in the courts of the United Stales, an,
I suppose you cannot do otherwise. To the great mass o
the community, the district or circuit court of the Unite,
States is distant, a f.,re i-n !i!,t ,i,.al, and accessible, with cin
venience, only to *..1. i. .. ,,1- of lhe immediate vicinity
where the terms of the court are held or the United States
iudge resides. For this reason, then, those living remote
from the courts would not, as petitioners, be apt to seek the
relief you propose to afford them, while the inconvenience ti
those whose rights might be adlversely affected, and whose
interest might lead them ta contest the proceedings, would be
oppressive and intolerable.
Again : the kind of jurisdiction you propose to confer ot
these courts, as the mode of proceeding which is to be adopted
to carry the act into effect, is te be according to summary pro
ceedings in equity. This mode of administering justice, front
the multiplicity of regulation and the extent to which thi
proceedings may lie spun out and the expense multiplied, is
extremely vexatious and oppressive, and of course obnoxious
to the citizen. The weight of this objection may be estimate
ed from a fact which 1 will relate. Not long since, a project
was started in my own State for amending the Constitutior
as to the judiciary : it appeared on taking thevote that a ma
jority of the Senate were for abolishing entirely the court o
chancery. Now, the Senate of that State are a staid, sober

rnments, at the same time, over the same People, was Bhy
many rather hoped for than exp cted.
I do wish. that the members of this committee, and those to
whom the high powers (f this Government may in all time be
committed, wowld suitably appreciate the profound wisdom of
hose great and good men who, in Ithe early days of the Con-
titution, so shaped ard moulded the laws, and called into
action the powers of this Government, as entirely to avoid
interference in the domestic concerns oh the People; and I
apprehend that wh(n the powers conferred upon this Govern-
nent are of a character to lead to such interference, and come
n collision with the laws of the States, the part of true wis-
lom will be found in abstaining from their exercise, unless
ipon the most pressing necessity.
The power vested in this Government to pass uniform
bankrupt laws, construed as it has been to leave such power
n the States until the national powers be exercised, was pro-
bably intended as a power of supervision and control, in order
o prevent gross abuse on the part of h'be States. There is
no pretence that such abuse has been attempted. The States
were prohibited from passing laws to impair the obligation of
contracts; but, under the bankrupt power, they might elude
such restriction but for this power in the General Govern-
ment of supervision and control.
About the year 18-27 the Supreme Court of the United
States decided that a State insolvent or bankrupt law, dis-
charging from the contract, would te constitutional as to all
contracts made in the States between the citizens thereof after
the passage of such law. Since that time, at least, it has been
understood to be fairly within the constitutional powers of
the States to provide prospectively for the absolute discharge
ofdbtors on terms as easy as provided by this bill. The fact
is, I believe, that, with this ascertained right in the States to
give the option to every debtor to be discharged from his debts
whenever his convenience or caprice shall dictate, on pi,,,|iy
assigning his property as you provide in this bill, r.. S.a,,
has gone to such an extravagant length towards abolishing
probity and good faith; and that no State has done so, should
be some evidence that the sober sense ofthe country does not
require such legislation. The fact is, that probity and good
faith are things so convenient, so useful, in the transaction
of private affairs, that the temptation to disregard them held
out even by li .iiceI ..ih..i-rl i 4 ,,r,.. remain long in vogue.
l have been ...-.. t i', .1" i,, .,.-1- ., r n, in my tinre, of theebbs
and flows of public feeling in favor of this propensity for relief
anm stop laws, and legislating men out of debt. In the year
1811 the Legislature of New York were overwhelmed with
petitions and other demonstrations of popular opinion in favor
of such a relief law. The embarrassments of business men
consequent on thie embargo, non-intercourse, and other com-
mercial troubles from 1808, had occasioned, as was supposed,
a peculiar necessity for a relief law of a veiy liberal character.
Well, under that impulse they passed the act of 3d April,
1811, commonly called the jubilee act, very much in principle
like the voluntary part of this bill. It was passed at the clpse
of the session, and its repeal was almost the first public act
of the very next session. That act was passed, as this will
be, not from any belief that the establishment of the principle
of such easy discharge from pecuniary obligation, to operate
on future transactions only, was essential to the welfare of
the People, but solely for its retroactive effects-solely from
sympathy for those embarrassed '.i i:. r h in, iinmg nd. tW. d F,
ln that case the alleged suffering was undoubtedly g.mnait
exaggerated. And in this case, the fact that the State insol.
vent laws will apply and afford relief to the extent that an en-
;-.(n,T.l public sentiment in the different States has sustain.-
.I h.-i' Legislaturesin going, will show to what a very limited
amoutint the number of cases will be reduced where a necessity
can be claimed for this law from any deficiency of power to
provide for them by the State systems. The cases where con-
tracts were made before the passage ofthe State insolvent or
bankrupt laws, and where the debts have not been contracted
in and due to the citizens of the same State, under whose laws
the discharge may be obtained, are the only cases where tne
State insolvent laws may not be or may be made entirely suf-
ficient to such discharge of unfortunate or dishonest debtors
as may best suit the policy and public sentiment in the diffe-
rent States. To provide firthis very restricted number of
cases-existing rarely but at large commercial points, and
there only in a limited proportion of those involved in debt-
I confess myself unwilling to impose upon the great mass ef
the nation a system coming in collision with the laws of the
States in the most odious and oppressive ferms, and bringing
great vexations into the private affairs, and subverting by
wholesale the rights, of individuals. I cannot believe that
such a system will be long sustained by the public opinion of
the country. Among other amendments which I have pre-
pared, and hope tlo see adopted if this bill is to pass, is one lim-
iting its duration to two years, and the end o f the then next
session of Congress. Public opinion will thea have tested it,
and, if found to work well, it may be easily re-enacted ; but
if it is found odious and oppressive, I do not wish to see it is
the power of a bare majority of either branch of the Legisla-
ture or the Executive to prevent its repeal. I wish to avoid
my necessity for getting up indignation meetings for its repeal.

WRIGS WILL YOU WAKE UP ?-By activity, vi-
gilance, united and vigorous effort, you last year
elected your President, your Governor, and the
only branch of the Legislature (of the State) with-
in the control of the ballot-box at that time, by
triumphant majorities. But the Locofocos held
the majority in the State Senate, and by their de-
structive course defeated all efforts to provide a
sound currency, and to stimulate industry and en-
terprise again to engage in active business. A
wily opponent was severely scotched, but not
killed. He is now again on the alert, with a well-
organized corps acting as one man to regain
power, that it may be exerted not only for your
destruction, but to the destruction of the best in-
terests of the country. The battle was but half
won. One more rally will complete the victory,
and secure some hope of prosperity for years to
come! Will you wake up? Come once more
to the rescue, and secure for years your principles
and your prosperity Recall the effects of the
blighting experiments of Locofocoism upon your
business, your individual prosperity, and let a voice
go up from the ballot-boxes which shall make the
ears of our adversaries tingle. Remember, when
you have heretofore failed in your duty, how reck-
less has been the course of the demagogues!
You have the power. In this, our cily of Cincin-
nati, you have a majority, if called out as it should
be, not only to make your success certain in this
county, but in all probability to determine the po-
litical complexion of the next Legislature and of
the State, and to settle its policy for the next year,
if not for years to come. The responsibility rests
upon you, Whigs of Cincinnati, individually and
collectively! Will you rally, organize, and do
your duty ? By apathy and inattention the Whigs
have lost ground in Iadiana, in Vermont, and in
Maine. These advantages of our opponents are
plainly attributable to our apathy, not to any
change in public opinion upon political affairs.
When we rouse up, and do what we can do, what
men ought to do, victory crowns our efforts-as
in the Congressional elections in Tennessee,
Georgia, North Carolina, and Indiana. But when
we sit quietly down, fold our arms, and cry peace,
peace, when there is no peace, but an active and
ever-tigilant enemy exerting his whole strength
in direct and insidious effort for your overthrow,
then we should look for defeat. "COME WHAT
Some are disheartened at the aspect of affairs at
Washington, and disposed to give up. To give
up when danger threatens has not hitherto been the
course of American freemen. There is no occasion
for dismay, though there is much for firmness. Is
the Whig party to be thrown into confusion by
the recent difficulties at Washington? True
Whigs will emphatically answer NO. Let us do
our duty with more firmness, and in greater unanim-
ity. There is much ground for hope in the future
prospect-none for despair. In the language ol
the Boston Atlas, let us say in reference to our
national affairs: We have repealed the odious
sub-Treasury; we have carried the Fortification
bill, the Home Squadron bill, the Loan bill, the
Revenue bill, the Bankrupt bill, and lastly, and
most happily, the Land Distribution bill. If we
could have been assured, at the commencement
of this session, that all these important Whig
measures would be carried through within the
limits of one short session, would not every Whig
heart have leaped for joy ? With such a glorious
array of consummated measures before us, what room
is therefore despondency ? Let us act like men and
like patriots. Let us yield to the President's de-
sire for further time for reflection. More than all,
and above all, let all sound and true Whigs through-
out the Union stand firmly together, shoulder to shoul-
der, until they have carried our beloved country to
that point of prosperity and happiness which it
was the primary object of their union to restore."

If the Distribution Bill had become a law it)
1832, when it passed by large majorities in both
Houses of Congress, but retained by General Jack-
son, who thus defeated the measure without allow-
ing Congress to pass upon it with his objections,
the State of Maryland would have received up to
this time from that source upwards of TWO MIL-
LIONS OF DOLLARS. The following table will show
the aggregate amount which each county in the
State would have received from 1.-3'-! to I';--
period of six years-supposing the sum to which
the State would have been entitled had been dis-
tributed among the counties:

Baltimore county

158 500
71, 000

Prince George's
(lueen Anne's
St. Mary's

79 000
48 000


The share of Maryland, it thus appears, for the pe
tod above named, would have been nearly $300,000
per annum. For the three years from 18-38 to 1841,
the average amount of annual sales of the pub-
lic lands has fallen short of the average for the
preceding six years. The financial difficulties
which have afflicted the country, to the depression
of most interests, and to the great discouragement
of enterprise, have operated no doubt to diminish
the extent of land sales in the West. But, under
all the disadvantages of the times, the amount of
sales since 1838, added to the sales of the prece-
ding six years, would raise the share of Maryland
from 1832 to the present time, supposing the
distribution had gone into effect in 183-2, consid-
erably over two millions of dollars.
One of the first results of tIle ascendancy of the
Whigs has been to secure the adoption of the
Distribution policy. Henceforth the States will
reap the benefits of it. It was not the fault oh
the Whigs that they did not enjoy these benefits

Messrs. GALES & SEATON : Believing the above named ad-
mirable labor-saving anti ventilating apparatus to be the most
valuable invention for that purpose that has been made since
this noble insect was first domesticated, I should deem myself
guilty of inexcusable neglect if I failed to urge its adoption
on American silk culturists. Before I describe the paper nets,
the method of making them, and the manner of using them,
I will quote a passage from a letter of Dr. J. S. BELt,, (Journal
of the American Silk Society, Volume II. page 290,) which
will show the opinion entertained of their value by intel-
ligent silk culturists in France. 1 am now using two hurtn-
dred and fifty paper nets; and, after several weeks' close
observation, I believe them to ble worthy of all the praise that
has been bestowed on them in France. Persons unacquaint-
ed with the habits of silk worms are incompetent judges of
the value of fixtures designed for their accommodation ; hence
thousands of dollars have been expended by inexperienced
theorists in the United States for the purchase of fixtures
that have -ui-..,I ',,iilv been thrown away. The capital ex-
pended in this way, since 1835, would furnish an ample
bounty for the establishment of this valuable culture in three
or four States of the Union. Speculators are still at work,
and there is reason to fear that larger sums will yet be thrown
away for unsuitable fixtures.
"It is well known that a speedy and effectual method of clear-
ing away the litter from the worms, during the feeding process,
has long been a desideratum. The network hurdles were re-
commended for this purpose ; but their '.. C,-n. is now, I be-
lieve, universally acknowledged. It '1, i. ,.r .-1 the pages of
the Propagateur,' that the operation of cleaning the worms is
now performed, in all the principal French colonies, by meons of
whatare termed paper nets, (papiers-filets.) Itaappeats that nets
made of twine were first used; but they are now universally su-
perseded by these paper nets, which are much cheaper, and are
said to be better adapted to the purpose. I regret that I have not
been able to find any description of these nets in the 'Propaga-
teur ;' iall the communications take it for granted that the reader
is already acquainted with their construction. As tar as I can dis-
cover, however, fioan the different articles on the subject, I think
they are made by punching a great number of small holes in a
sheet of n'. paper, with an instrument constructed for the pur-
pose. I. i. this paper is laid upon the worms to be cleaned,
mulberry leaves having been previously sprinkled over it, the
worms ascend through the holes as they are said to ascend through
the mfeshes of the network hurdles, and the paper underneath
containing thie litter can of course be removed. The inventor of
ihis apparatus is M. Eugene Robert. In a letter to the editor of
the Propagateur' lie remarks: The use of the paper nets in
i.. .. ..., .-"f i,.t Tulle, and in a great numb r of large and
.1, ,I :*i 1 il.. .,,., in the neighborhood, h s bbeesn attended with
sumh entire success that i will hereafiter confine myself toa, sim-
ple presentation of the testimony of those culturists who have
made use of them, in order to recommend the adoption of my
economical net.' He then cites, ar..... ii,, i i. i,,, ii, it of
a distinguished culturist of Brest in i.. ,- wi,,,. r, t i ., M.
Pain,. de Laforet, who, after staying that his succe's that year
(1839) had been greater than in any former season, adds : 1 owe
this result to your paper nets, which l have used continually up to
the time of mounting, to the number of 1,500, 2 feet wide and 4
feet long, (.rr ..'. '',1 .1 .,I lie size of my shelves, have had
a greatnmau.u ..,w'. ,i t, 6 myself have made use ofthe paper
nets this year. Pierced according to the pattern of yours, my
nets have worn very well; fur I have uhad but 10 or 12 of then
injured. I have no doubt that by sian-ther year the paper nets will
be brought into general use throughout the country.' "
I will now furnish directions for making and using nets
similar to mine, which I have found to accomplish well what
is ascribed to the French nets.
These nets are made by providing a framework of light
laths, 3 feet long and 2 feet wide, (this being the size most
convenienrt,)-the two pieces of laths 3 feet long being united
by three pieces 2 feet long, one at each end and one in the
middle. The holes (five-eighths of an inch in diameter) are
punched in sheets of strong brown paper, 3 feet long and 2
feet wide, to suit the frames on which they are pasted. Th,
space between the holes may be about an inch. With an in-
strument called a wad-cutter, twenty sheets of paper may be
punched at once. Double sets of these nets will cost but lit-
tle more than shelves of rough plank; and if the frames are
well put together with wrought nails, they will last more than
twenty years. This paper will require renewing in every pe-
riod of six or seven years. After the silkworms have accom-
plished thile third moulting, the nets may he laid over the
worms daily, if the culturist desires it, up to the time of mount-
ring, and the worms will be kept as clean as the most careful
could desire, and with comparatively little labor.
The nets must not be laid over the worms when they are
torpid; but, after the third and fourth moultings, when nearly
all the worms are roused, they may be laid over them daily;
o.nd when the leaves are scattered over the paper, they will
speedily extricate themselves from the litter, ascend through
the holes, and commence eating. The nets may be used with
>r without shelves under them; if without shelves, they can
he supported by parallel slips of timber, about 20 inches apart;
if placed on shelves, they must be raised about two inches by
placing blocks of timber under each end. When these nets
are used, disease cannot be produced by the accumulation of
litter without gross r, li:,.'- ,i no claim to infallibility is
set up for them. L;-' i i to,.., try them. They will be
found simple, (a child can apply and use them,) economical,
and very efficient. LAYTON Y. ATKINS.

The SECRETARY OF STATE left this city yester-
day morning on a visit to his country residence
in Massachusetts.

Mr. EwiNG, the late Secretary of the Treasury,
having returned to this city from his visit to Bos-
ton, left here again yesterday morning on his way
to rejoin his family in Ohio.

The Supercargo of the barque Florida (Mr.
Bush) reports that, just as the Florida hurried
away from Macao, news was received from Canton
of an outbreak there, the Chinese having com-
menced hostilities. The Florida passed Captain
ELLIOT in the steamer Nemesis, on the 18th,
bound to Canton. It is probable, therefore, the
bloody war has been commenced in good earnest,
the British fleet offCanton, under Capt. HERBERT,
having received orders, in case the least hostility
was manifested, to bombard the city, and not
cease until it was reduced to ashes. They were
enjoined, at the same time, to afford all possible
protection to foreigners. The city was filled with
Tartar soldiers, above sixty thousand having al-
ready arrived. They were daily coming in in
great numbers from the adjacent country.
The following extracts from letters were writ-
ten a few days previous to the sailing of the Flo-
rida, and are therefore not so late as the above
verbal reports:
CANTON, MAY 11, 1841.
With reference to political matters, since the commence-
ment of the present month, the native population has been
gradually becoming more and more alarmed by secret prepa-
ra'ions made by the Mandarins for renewal of hostilities with
the English; a request has been sent to Capt. Eliot that the
forts on the river and at the Bogue be surrendered to the
Chinese, to which Capt. E. replies that every thing must
remain as now ,,-..irlijig and that as long as the Chinese
preserve faith I.... ao ..., hostility will be committed by the
English forces. A large number oftroops, said toamount to
some 60,000 men, have arrived here from the northern and
western provinces, and certain movements of bodies of these
men have brought two or three British vessels of war within
cannon shot of Canton. Capt. Elliot arrived here this morn-
ing, and has had an interview with the authorities, but to
what purpose we have not been at.lo to learn; the excitement
of the people is, however, increasing, and we shall not be
surprised to find ourselves within ten days either outside the
Bogue, or prisoners in the factories at Canton, or perhaps
residing in Canton as we now are, but with a substitution of
British for the present Chinese rulers.
Commodore Sir GORDON BREMER is expected to return
here from Calcutta by about the end of June, at the latest.
The Peking Gazettes have of late obtained a great number
of memorials to the Emperor from young men of good fami
ies, who, anxious to signalize their valor and patriotism, re-
quest to be permitted to join the imperial army to fight against
the red bristled race. At Peking, so very distant at present
from the seat ot war, the spirit evinced by the Government,
so hostile to every peaceable arrangement, seems to he very
popular, and threats to exterminate the insolent barbarians
findl great favor.
We are sorry to state that a good deal of sickness prevail-
ed at Canton, as well among the merchant community as on
board the ships of war anchored in the river. The weather
latterly has been very unfavorable.
Her Majesty's brig Columbine had returned to Macao
from a trip to Chusan, with M. Gntslaff as interpreter, but
the hostility of the natives prevented a landing. M. Gutslaff
ascertained, however, by a brief interview, that Captain
Stead had been killed by the Mandarins and soldiers, who
beat him to death with stones.
The reception the Columbine met with at Chusan abund-
antly manifests the spirit of hostility entertained by the Chi-
nese against the Engliah, and it likewise shows that what has
hitherto been done by the latter has entirely failed of making
them feared or respected; in fact, the haughtiness of the Chi-
nese towards outer barbarians seems rather to have increased
than otherwise since the evacuation of Chusan, which in im
aerial edicts is ascribed to the fear of Tartar armies.
We annex a characteristic proclamation from
the Celestials :
Pacilicator of the rebels and Generalisstimo, with theassistant
Great Minsters, LUNG and YANS, issue this proclamation for
the clear urndiertaniling of affairs.
It is known that the fiun nationss of the empire are the peo.
ple, and that the safety of the people is the army; and, there-
fore, as they arc mutually dependent on, they should regard
each other with mutual good feeling.
The Province of Canton has always been reported as a
rich and extensive department, a district famous for learned
and wealthy men.
Our dynasty has fed anti nourished the black-haired people
fior more than two hundred years, and has kept the empire in
peace and tranquillity for a long period, and the people have
never seen a redcoat ; and so, it one person a.'. -i-e. f.,iI.$

'lifficutlLies, orders his officers to lead forth their troops.
When 1 (Yilsban) first seated myself in my chariot, I
heard that, since the rebellious barbarians first bolted into the
river of the city, great numbers of the trading community
have removed themselves. Now that troops are assembling
from all quarters, the strength of our forces cannot he said to
bie slender; nor can the city and the surrounding land be said

JOHN MENOUOH, an engineer on the Columbia railroad, in
jumping front the locomotive while coming down the road near
Fairmouni, last week, broke both his legs belowthe knees;
and so shockingly were they shattered by coming'in contact
with tt.e ground, that it is apprehended one or both of them
will have to be amputated. Of all men engineers should be
supposed the most careful about jumping from a railroad train
when in motion, seeing as they do so many accidents from
that imprudence.

comprising all the new varieties. Mr. BuimsT, Mr. CAMMACKand

ged his own name in letters formed of dahlias.
