S 0ST V'A LE"1ABLE WATER H POWER s at Pri
LYJ. VIte Fnle-- fhe arbecriber is authorized to sell at pri-
vate sale the whole or any part of a very valuable unimproved
water- power, situated immediately on the Tide- water canal, about
ten miles above Havre-de Grace, in Harford county, Maryland.
This power is about three times as great as the whole of the Bran-
dywine near Wilmington, Delaware, and is 4 most desirable site
for a rolling-mill or manufactory vf say kind requiring water-
power. Its proximity to the iron and coal region of Pennsylva-
nia, and to the Chesapeake Bay, (by means of the Tide-water
canal;) the immense volume of water at all times at command;
and the small expenditure necessary for the construction of the
dam and excavation of the race., give it advantages which would
be difficult, if not impossible, to find elsewhere.
There will be sold with the above water power about forty
icres. f lind, on which are two dwelling-houses, a barnoand two
lime klre, with cranes to raise the limestone out of the boats to
the lop .:.f ithe kil.
I he eut.-finer is also authorized to sell another large and vain-
able water-power on Deer creek, in the same county, and in as
beautiful and healthy a region of country as can be found within
this Union. This power is situated About two miles from the
Tide-water canal, by the county road along the margin of the
creek, and about sever miles from Havre-de-Grace. It includes
the whole of the stream, with a fall of about fourteen feet ; a
stream said to be sufficient, with a fall of seven feet, to turn
twelve pair of six-feet burrs at the seasons of greatest drought.
With the power last mentioned will be sold fifty or one haun
dried acres of land, as the purchaser may desire,
The above very valuable powers are offered on the most advan-
tageouis terms, and for one-hundredth part of what they would
command in many neighborhoods in the Eastern States, and with-
out a single advantage more than they now possess.
For further particulars, apply to the subscriber, near Darling-
ton, Harford county, Maryland.

NATIONAL INTELLIGENCE.

FROM "OUR EUROPEAN CORRESPONDENT.

PARIS, SEPTEMBER 9, 1844.
My letter of the day before yesterday was thrown
into the post office for the packet at Havre earlier
than the arrival here of Queen VICTOaRIA'S annun-
ciation of the removal of all differences between
the Governmenls of France and Great Britain. On
the 6th the Tahiti affair was hI,-ld to be at an end.
In that lelter were mentioned the impression on
this public of the unexpected mysterious success of
the O'CONNELL appeal-the important tariff con-
vention between Prussia and Belgium-the tariff
-ordinances of ihe French Government-the vicis-
situdes and new phases of the politics of Greece-
the appointment of a military and scientific com-
mittee for the re-organization of the polytechnic
school-and some effusions of the Paris press. You
had from me last winter an account of the new ta-
riffbill which was submillc-ted to the Chamberi, but re-
mained at the end of the session,as the phrase is," in
tthe state of a report." The Minister of the Treasury
can in the recess, by a law of 1814, increase the du-
ties on foreign fabrics or prohibit them altogether, and
facilitate, restrict, or suspend the exportation of do-
mestic products; he may diminish but not increase
the duties on raw materials for French manufac-
tires. His measures are subject to the control of
the Chambers when they meet; he has little to fear,
however, according to experience, from any sponta-
neous action on their part. The present royal or-
dinances carry into effect as much of the bill above
mentioned as the law of 1814 enabled him to modi-
iy. He could not raise the tariff on oleaginous
seeds, these being used for the soap and oil manu-
factures of the south, while the agriculturists of the
north would have them excluded entirely. The
material changes in the tariff relate to steam ma-
chinery; the protection granted is equivalent to
thirty per rent., but does not still countervail the
effect of the free exportation of machinery from
Great Britain. Domestic spinning, weaving, and
printing machinery gains to the degree of twenty-
two per cent. The other ordinance provisions fa-
vor importalions under the national flag. It is ob-
served by the Journal des Debats of the modifica-
tions in general, "They have the character which
we like to see in tariff enactments; they promote
Ihe development of our manufacturing industry
and our commercial marine; they do not clash
with the interests of agriculture or of the 'Treas-
ury. Sound political economy dictates a constant
Close attention to our important home market;
this is given in the administration of our commer-
Scial matters." Heed should be extended to the
semi-official language of the Debats respecting the
encouragement of home-made machinery. Let me
translate it for you. "We were bound to shield
the precious manufacture of machinery from Bri-
Stish competition; it is entitled to what may en-
able it to ihrive suitably to its present advance-
Sment. Doubtless we should wish to get mhchin-
ery for omr industry and manufactures in general
at the cheapest possible rate ; but there is a deep-
Ser concern-for all branches of industry, for the
Whole country-that of possessing factories com-
Splete in every respect for domestic construction.
SThe art of the mechanician is one of the vital,
primary forces of society. It has been truly said
that every country should endeavor to produce
grain and iron enough for its wants. We may add
to these essential bases of the existence of nations,
machinery, and, above all, steam machinery, the
chief element now-a-days of their industrial and
political life." You will observe that the free
trade theory vanishes in practice every where in
Europe before the considerations of national inde-
pendence and security.
Three or four of the articles of the Revue des
Deux Monds, issued on the 1st instant, are at least
instructive. The number commences with a tale
of which the subjectl is trite and the execution with,
out redeeming merit. The second article-ofthir-
ty-five pages-on the manufacturing industry of
France," though diffuse and verbose, and surcharg-
ed with common-place maxims and doctrines, may
be pronounced valuable on account of the statisti-
cal details. Those of the iron and coal and the
flax and hemp products of France possess the chief
interest. The reviewer dwells on the recent exhi-
bition in the Champs Elyse6s with less elation than
his contemporaries" of the press. He questions
the utility of these exhibitions in general, even to
the manufacturing interest: while they flalter na-
tional and personal vanity, they prove, lie thinks,
really serviceable to foreign rivals in a greater de-
gree than to any class at home. He appears to mne
wrong on all grounds. He observes : However
inventive and sedulous the genius of the French,
we have reached, in a small number of articles
only, and these not all of the most important na-
ture, that industrial perfection in which we were
preceded by some other countries. We borrow
"much of foreign invention and improve upon it in
not a few instances. We are excelled by four
nations, in cutlery, arms, nails, and hardware pro-
per." He regards the French work in bronze,
gold, silver, and precious stones, and Frenclh furni-
ture, mirrors, some kinds of china and glass, as un-
rivalled. He cites Birmingham and Sheffield as
having studied the Paris exhibition with particular
attention and benefit. France exports annually in
perfumery to the amount of eight millions of francs ;
in gloves of her manufacture to the same amount;
in cards, engraved pictures, and music, and litho-
graphs, to the extent of ten millions of francs.
Within the last quarter of a century the manufac-
tore of iron has quadrupled in France, but England
exports as much iron as France now produces, and
"this* shows her general superiority." On the
whole, the reviewer underrates French manufac-
turing industry with reference to that of other na-
tions, and he complains of the backwardness of his
country in distant commercial enterprises. The
cotton manufacture occupies several of his pages.
You may be struck with his remark that cotton is
the great peace-maker; it maintains, he says, la
bonne harmonic, between the two sides of the At-
lantic. The sale of the raw material is necessary
to America; the use of it-at peace prices like-
wise-toEuurope. In the third article of thirty-two
pages on the Savings Banks (Caisses d'Epargne) of
France, there is much to reward a close perusal.
The writer traces the rise of the institution in Great
Britain and the progress of imitation on this side of
the channel. He falls into a wild strain of regret
at the extinction of lotteries, which were found-


ed on hope, a theological virtue and a phrenologi-
cal organ-were the poetry of chance and a means
of universal equality;" absolute nonsense in my
humble opinion. In the article, however, the ad&
vantages of the savings funds are fairly and broad-
ly set forth, at the same time that they are suppos-
ed to promote selfishness in the classes who chiefly
resort to this institution : the poorer do not exercise
as much liberality towards each other as formerly,
when they retained their money without provident
tltou.ehts or expectation of interest. Two thousand
francs is the maximum of the deposit allowed in
France; three thouudii that of accumulation by
interest. The amount of funds in Great Britain and
Ireland is six hundred and fifty millions of francs ;
in France three hundred and sixty millions. Too
many people, either rich or in eas\ circui.stance-i,
contrive to get into the caisses. The (Governmeni,
to whom all the funds are committed, allows four
per cent. in interest, deducting a third per cent. for
expenses of management. But they are not ade-
quately employed. The institution subtracts too
puch money from circulation: the stagnation of

NATIONAL INSTITUTE PAPERS.

WM. B. HODGSON'S RECENT WORK ON AFRICA-

A volume has just been presented to the National
Institute, by one of its active corresponding mem-
bers, entitled "Notes on Norihern Africa, the Sa-
hara, and Soudan, in relation to the ethnographv,
languages, history, political and social condition of
the nations of those countries, by WM. B. HODGSON,
late Consul of the United States near the Regency
of Tunis."
This work is from the press of Wiley & Putnam,
New York, and is appropriately inscribed to the
venerable ALBERT GALLATIN, as President of the
Ethnological Society of New York. It is the result
of Mr. Hodgson's personal intercourse with the na-
tives of Africa, and the following is its table of con-
tents. It will no doubt sustain and enlarge the repu-
tation of its accomplished author:

The undersigned have the honor to present an invention
which will be of utility to Commerce and to the Navy. The
objects of the invention are-
1st. Such a disposition of the sails as will ensure them
protection from projectiles of any kind, from wind, and from
the waves.
Vd. The manufacture of cordage of various sizes, posses-
sing elasticity that will enable them to resist the most violent
winds, and rendering them impervious to all variations of the
atmosphere.
3d, The construction of a cannon, to be pointed by a new
method, requiring the services of two men less than usual,
and which will not recoil on being fired, as an ordinary can-
non does; and which, after being fired twenty times, main-
tains its position.
We should wish, in case our invention is adopted, that
there should be secured to us the sum of one hundred thou-
sand francs ($20,000) previous to entering on the contract.

P!prs, AUoUsT 14, 1844.
Mr DEAR Sg ; Your letters of the Sth and 6th July last
brought me rather discouraging intelligence; for, by refusing
the trifling sum requested for the support of the Institute, it
seems that the House does not consider it as a National es-
tablishment. If such was the case, it would produce a very
painful senastio9 in Europe, where all the scientific men
and every friend of the United Stqtes saw this creation with
joy and hope, for they look at the National Institute as the
greit Intellectual medium through which rapid and perma-
nent intercourse is Pto he opened with the whole Ameiican
continent, and as the great reservoir in which all the streams
of sciences, arts, industry, and natural productions of the
two hemispheres will mlept for the best advantage of the whole
human family.
It is generally believed here, and I haveenforced this opin-
ion of mine every where, that the People of the United
States, convinced of the indispensablenes of a central scien-
tfic .oinri of action, have been anxious to lay down the foun-
dstions of a national establishment that would show the uni-
verse how highly they appreciate the mighty power of know-
ledge; and, with this belief, all our most distinguished states-
men, authors, atists, &c. have been willing to transmit,
through my hand, to this National Institute copies of their
works, as a token of their esteem and admiration for a peo-
ple we have been taught from our childhood to love as bre-
thryn; apd those wh9 have been elected members of it have
accepted this title with joy, because they have seen in it a
new pledge of friendship and the renewal of our old alliance.
The numerous letters of acknowledgment addressed to the
Institute by Ministers, Peers, Deputies, Academicians, all
the first men in every branch of science, arts, and industry,
are there to prove the truth of my assertions; and I beg of
you to remark, that such enthusiastic and almost public de-
monstrations of sympathy could not have been raised but in
favor of the whole American Union. You may then have
an idea of oqr great and general disappointment, were Con-
gress to disown the Natioal I institute by refusing pecuniary
assistance.
If the honorable members of Congress who have been op-
posed to the National Institute had been able to see the great
services it is calculated to render the country, not only at
home, but abroad-what prejudices and erroneous ideas it has
already destroyed, what a number of sincere and power-
ful friends it has already secured to the United States,
ready to advocate the cause of their new brethren-such
advantages would alone be sufficient for the National Insti-
tute to deserve the grateful acknowledgment of the whole
American nation; for we cannot have too many friends, what-
ever may be our material power. I am, therefore, confident
that the honorable and patriotic opponents of the Institute,
having had time to reflect upon its real importance, will, at
;he next session, be its best friends; for I am sure, knowing
the generosity of American character as I do, that their oppo-
sition to it was the inspiration of good and honorable feelings,
Politics having nothing to do with this affair, and that the
moment they perceive that such an establishment will be
really useful to their beloved country, they will become its
SHost powerful supporters.
I had yesterday the honor of conversing about this matter
with the Hon. Colonel KING, and his Excellency, as well as
Dr. MARTIN, your accomplished Secretary of Legation, are
af the above opinion, and both have promised to do all in
their power to show their friends in America the important
services to be expected from the existence of the National
Institute.
Enclosed you will find eleven letters of acknowledgment

was informed this morning by Mr. Dufrenny that the fa-
mous ueolngical Map of France, with the 41o volume de-
scriptive of the said Map, was ready, and at my dis-
posal; another volume, in tolio, of the celebrated Orien-
tal collection, of which you have received the four first,
will soon he ready. My apartments will continue to be en-
cumbered with presents for the National Institute, unless
news should reach Paris that your Congress had ultimately
decided not to sanction and sustain this noble and interesting
esalablishment. A. V.

Mr DzAti 8lt: I hasten to inform you that the Minister
of Justice has, with the advice ofat Mr. Lxinau,, Peer of
France, Director of the Royal Printing Office, and with a view
of giving a token of his esteem and sy npathy to the National
Institute, resolved that a perpetual subscription to the
Journal des Savants should be presented to the Institute;
and not only that, but has besides ordered that the wh,:.le
collection of this most important and precious publication,
printed since 1816, should be delivered to me to have it trans-
mitted to the National Institute.
Enclosed you will find a letter of acknowledgment from
Count de Rombuteau, Prefect of the Seine, Member of the
Institute of France, and first Magistrate of the city of Paris.
From Mr. Geofroy de St. Hillaire, Professor and Adminis-
trator of the Museum of Natural History.
From Mr. Eduard Alletz, Consul Gendral de France a
Genes, a distinguished historian and poet.
From Mr. Antoine Bovy, Medal Engraver.
That you may succeed in your great undertaking for the
welfare and glory of your, I may almost say our, beloved
country, is the most ardent prayer o, my dear sir, your de-
voted friend, A. VATTEMARE.
I have got now a good number of very interesting works
for the National Institute, but I keep them until I shall receive
le Journal des Savants, and other objects of arts, and will
send all together to save the expense.

BROOKLYN, (L. I.) OCTORZt 1, 1844.
Sixa : The change which the present season of the year
causes in the coloring of the trees, and in vegetation gener-
ally, together with the haziness by which the landscape is
enveloped at sunrise and sunset, and also the warm coloring
of the skies, in consequence of the suns more southern de-
clination, are circumstances which invite the Artist abroad to
study Nature in her happiest moods, in order to record on
the canvass those sublime appearances which, when faith-
fully delineated with all the power of Ihe art, chain the eye,
improve the taste, and elevate the mind.
The causes of such lovely instances of aerial effect, with
the rich purple hue of distant woods and mountains-the
warm and varied coloring of the middle ground, with its
transparent lights and shadows-the rich and glowing reflec-
tions of all foreground objects i. the water, arising from their
varied hues, together with the prismatic tints of the clouds,
the loveliness of the azure, and the gorgeous glow of sunset,
and the blushing hue of sunrise, are not, however, generally
adverted to, or, if investigated, not sttlficiently known ; and
it therefore becomes the duty of the philosopher to eluci-
date the subject, and develop the causes which conspire to
produce in Nature such a harmony of circumstances to de-
light the eye, and, after the sultry heats of summer, to please
and gratify ;be senses, before being called upon to bear the
bleak and steaij aspects oF winter,
Permit me, therefore, respectfully Io lay before the Insti-
tute what I conceive to be the causes to which I refer. In
the first place, the withdrawal of a portion of the sap from
the sap vessels of trees and plants, prevents their absorption
of so much of the areen ray ps had previously been exhibit-
ed, and permit s them to absorb, according to the chemical
corrmposition of their lIgneous structure, the yellow, the
orange, or the red ray, and develop them accordingly : in the
the second place, the comparative coldness of the upper strata
of the atmosphere, in the morning and evening, owing to theL
sun's increasing southern declination, especially if the wind
happens to be from the northward, produces a condensation
of vapor from the warmer surface of the earth which results
in that softened outline of distant landscape, anP4 those rich
aerial tints, and that perspective, which are so pleasing : in
the third place, by the sun's altitude, at the September period
of his southern declination, about one or two hours after sun-
rise, and before sunset, the rays are thrown through the
masses of vapor floating in the atmosphere, or upon the at-
mosphere itself, at or near the prismatic angle, and, by re-
fraction, produce in the sky that rich variety of warm and
harmonious coloring which it has beet the study of the great
masters in their works to copy, while they produce upon
vegetation that freshness and transparency which have been
so justly and beautifully delineated by Both, Cuyp, Claude
Lorraine, and other celebrated painters of landscape scenery.
Perhaps in no part of the world are there produced more
brilliant, transparent, or rich and harmonious instanees of
these combinations than in the United States ; and it would
no doubt add greatly to thp riches of the fine arts, and to the
glory of our Republic, if these should be seized upon by our
artists, and their efforts to give them immortality be pat-
ronized by those patriotic citizens who have It in their power
to do so.
I remain, sir, very respectfully, yours,
JOS. T. DUTTON.

COMMUNICATIONS.

'HFE TARIFF, FOREIGN EXCHANGES, EXPORT
OF SPECIE, &c.
Whilst the Jackson Van Buren Locofocos (I do not in-
clude ald.faslioned Democrats like Commodore STEWART
Bnd Colonel JosNos, the nomination of either of whom
might have prevented M. CL.AY from merely galloping round
the course) are straining every muscle to prostrate our thir-
ty-two per cent. tariff, facts and figures demonstrate that such
a low duty is not competent to prevent the reflux of coin.
Daring the last three months our imports far exceed our sex-
ports, and, by consequence, exchange on England has ad.
vanced above par, and the precious meiala are now flowing
outward, and the current must continue to set that way in
probably larger quantities, tightening the money market and
raising the rate of interest, till we may have another terrible
commercial revulsion, unless some remedy be applied. What
that remedy shall be I leave to older and wiser heads; but
one thing is as clear as the sunbeams in the heavens, that if
adch a thing were possible as the reduction of the tariff from
thirty-two to twenty per cent., in less than twelve months
thereafter nearly all the specie in the country would be
a wept from our shores, and all the banks, from New Vosk ia
New Orleans, would stop specie payments, as they did in
1837. The people of this country appear to lose sight of
the fact that if our own manufacturers, whether at Lowell,
Virginia, or North Carolina, sell as they are now doing, at
low prices, cotton fabrics, they are willing to take nego-
tiable note', payable at the residences of the purchasers in
current bank note ; hut when foreigners throw their sue-
pltu goods into this country-and half the time it is done to
find a vent for them, and of course 'hey pay the duty-they
require the specie or what is equivalent to it. So long as
sterling bills be at or under par value, foreigners prefer re-
mittances in that form; but wAi'n sterling advances above
par, (nine per cent. premium,) they show no accommoda-
tion to us and our banks, but demand the specie. Whilst
pqr exports exceed our imports sterling will be below par,
and under suih a state of things we shall have nothing to
fear; on the contrary, we must gradually become rich, indi-
vidually and nationally. But so long as we import more
than we ex poit, as we are now doing, exchange on Europe
will continue above par, and, as a matter of course, the pre-
cious metals will be taken out of the country, which ie emi-
penily calculated to cripple every branch of work, trade, or
business, from him who follows the plough up to him who
wields millions.
When I Was a neophyte, (as CoL BEZSTXor would say,)
i a counting-house in Virginia, I was wont to reqd ooks
pa commerce, trade, f' Wgalth of Nations," 4e., such as
lhe works of Adam Smith, Ricardo, and others, and I then
thought I was well "posted up ;" but tempera mutantur.
It is true, the world has ever since stood still, (with the excep-
tion of an occasional earthquake ;) but the business of the
world has very much changed, and practical men of course
a tapt themselves to the circumstances of the times ; and if
the old writers on trade, political economy, &c. were now
alive they wFould *uange aso, .
Il is the common remark among ai that the Yankees are
the most calculating peopip on the face of the globe; but
from my personal observation there are innumerable En-
gfliahbmen, Frenchmen, and Germane, both in this country
and Europe, that are more than equal matches to the gene-
rally honest, industrious, intelligent, thriving sons of New
England. Educated and property holding foreigners, wheth-
er resident among us or in their own countries, are almost all
in opposition to a protective tariff; a National Bank, &c.
Sy is this'! Simply because they know, from close calcu-
lation, that out of confusionn worse onfounded! they can
make money out of nus Ampricans i but if the true American
policy be adopted they must seek employment of their capi-
tal In some other quarter of the world. It is right that we
offer to all foieigners an asylum, and they should be treated
as brothers so long as they be willing to be governed by out
institutions and laws and American interests; but when they
turn against these in any form, I think, instead of inviting
them by the operation of most liberal naturalization laws to
come among u., we should invite them to go back But re-
cently I received a letter from an old and eminent merchant
of London, who, knowing as be does that the American ta.
riff operates favorably for us and unfavorably for his house,
which has large business with our country, condemns in se
rare terms the tariff of 1842, which is gradually rendering
u prosperous at the expense of England. If this fine old
aEnglish gentleman," who has been much among us, and oh
,srved with an eagle eye men end things, had not closed hi,
letter by a complimentary remark to Mr. 'CrAT, I should no
have excused his attack upon the tariff; but, anti-tariff though
4e be, he yet thinks Mr. CLAY is the man fo; the times. Hi
pays : really do hope, however, that yog will have Mr
CIlr for president, for, although no particular friend o
SEngland, he, to my mind, has always been one of you
First men, and you may, indeed will require a man of hi
sound and enlarged views to keep you right, not only
' among yourselves, if such a thing be possible, but witl
Your foreign interests far and near." And, in my humbi
opinion, hbe might 'hqve ae4ded, thgt, f circustauned as w
are," Mr. C&AT is the only man among us to save the Unio
from dissolution.

SHIP CANAL ACROSS THE PENINSULA OF
FLORIDA.

The revival of this important project must be attended wit
ihe development of facts highly interesting, both in their con
perciol and political character. The trading portions of tt
country are, I am very glad to see, awakening to a sense i
the necessity of calling the attention of the Government t
this communication between the Atlantic and the Gulf
Mexico, and no one can doubt the constitutionality of prove
sion being made for this object, in the event of its practice
ability. In 1827 and j8 8 surveys were made under the 4
rection of General BxINAann, then at the head qf the bogi
of internal improvement, who made a very interesting repo
in relation to the project, embracing all the details that wei
necesary to show conclusvely that its practicability depem
ed upon the supply of water for the prism of the summ
level. Harveya and experiments were recommended by Get
BXaB,.zn to be made to determine this important inquiry;
Lieut. PeziCiL was directed by- the War Department to pri
ceed to Florida under a special appropriation of Congresi
and make the surveys, &c., and report upon the feasibility
of a ship canal across the peninsula. His report was sul
roitted to Congress, but was, if J recollect aright, adverse !
the project. Since then nothing was farther done. Feelir
a deep interest in the matter, I trust the subject will not I
abandoned without another effort. Lieut. PxcKELxa' su
veys and experiments are highly interesting, and may I
availed of in future examinations at points more southerli
where more favorable ground may perhaps be found.

1Jr TO THE PUBLIC.-My attention has been directed to
an address by the State Central Committee of Maryland to the
Whigs of the Union," purporting to be signed hy the members of
that con.mieue, in which it is charged on their belief that full
I,300 -,ieas were falsely and surreptitiously introduced into the
ballot box; and that they have been the product of a skilful and
diligently perpetrated fraud upon the rights of the real voters of
Baltimore."
Hviring long since retired to private life, I have borne no part
in be pnlticl acoeats ofthe day beyond the free and unreserved
expression of my opinions and views sas a private citizen ; and in
the maintenance of these, I have on this occasion caat my vote
with the Democratic party, claiming and reserving to myself the
privilege, often denied to the mere partisan, ofapproving or con
demnaing as my own judgment may dictate, and following the lead
of no I arty except in accordance vith its dictates. But, although
not enrolled as an active member in the ranks of the Democratic
party, I have yet, from community of views and opinions, been
neceesarilyv thrown into free and frequent communion, during the
pasacontest, with many of the active and influential members of
that party, and have bad, as I believe, freely and unreservedly
disclosed to me every thing relative to their prospects, progress,
and probable vote. During the whole of that intercourse, so far
from observing @nv 'hing like a design, intention, or wish to in
troduce illegal vote, i. ti the balloting at the past election, I deem
it due to them to say, that they have, on -he : ,iir%, ..tii l times,
manifested and expressed the most sicr rL ind ar .ar, desire
and hope that all illegal voles might b.i ea.-:lu J.; th. utmost
anxiety to adopt any ticasures which would'ensure *ht result;
the utma3t det'mination to preventit at ail hassrdsndil thi tncs<
thorough conviction that if prevented att alt! si d *, ,irint vic-
tory awaited them In this city. Il"m it dueto, em li."o d,
that soi far frou the a .l-,ars of votes cast so greatly exceeolng the
tP'"3+ ofai| it;was, on the contrary, is 1 thought, general
ly supposed, and certainly by myself believed, and that belief ex
pressed before the sleptiun, thltl ie numiltor cast would exceed
t6,00p votes l and it is vitthip my knowledge that one of the gen.
aemen, whode oneat is appended to that address, and who, I
feel confident, could not have seen it before it was issued, has
himself estimated the probable vote of this city at about 17,000
la conclusion, then, I deem it due to all the members of ihe De-
mocrtic party, with whom I hve been in association during the
plot content, (and they have been many and influential,) to ex
press my sincere and thorough conviction that the above charge
ii, as far as they are concerned, ut'erly unfounded; and my be-
ilef, founded on all the means of observation of the course of the
r Democratic party which have enjoyed, that it is equally so with
regad to the action ofthat party ai a pa 'ty

NOTO, BY THE EDITORS.
t Unwilling to close our columns against the pub-
lication desired by the gentlemen whose names are
signed to the above, (among whom is the writer of
the introductory letter to us ) we insert their state-
ments without making any charge therefore ; it not
being our custom to receive pay for the insertion
Sof any matter pertaining to the politics of the coun-
try whico we think fit to publish.
In giving place to the preceding articles, we will
only remark that ihey prove nothing but that the
writers haye' had no agency in procuring or counte-
.nancing the illegal votes which were cast at the late
Selection. That, to a certain extent, there was illegal
Sand fraudulent voting at that election, is certainly
S not disproved by the testimony of the respectable
V gentlemen whose names are signed to the above
9 papers that they were not privy to it. That A. or
0 B. had no knowledge of C. D. or E. committing
any particular crime, is no evidence that C. D. and
E., or the rest of the alphabet, are innocent of any
crime charged upon them, especially when there is
positive proof, as in the case of the numerous ar-
rests and commitments for corrupt voting at the
late election in the city of Baltimore, that illegal
g votes were given at that election.

C04RaIBSTowW, OCTOBEs 8, 1844.
DEAR S it : In the "Spirit of Jefferson" of last week, I
find certain "propositions," offered, as says the editor, by
Mr. J. C. Rives, which I will take up. They are as follows:
"1s lt, I will give $100 to any responsible person, who
will agree to return to me $10 for every electoral vote that
Col. Polk beats Henry Clay." Good! I will take up that
proposition.
2d. I will give $50 to any responsible person, who
will agree to return to m" i,50 vor every electoral vote that
Col. Polk leats Henry Clay v .'. t 50." Good | I will take
up that proposition.
"1d. I will give $100 to any responsible person, who
will agree to return to me $100 for every electoral vote
Col. Polk beats Henry Clay more than 100." Good! I
will take up that proposition.
"4th. I will give $100 to any responsible person, who
will agree to return to me $100 for every 10,000 popular
votes Col. Polk beats Henry Clay ; the popular votes not to
be counted in those States where the electors shall have been
chosen by the legislature." First-rate I will take up that
proposition.
"65th. I will give $100 to any responsible person, who
will agree to return to me one mill, and double it for every
electoral vote Col. Polk beats Henry Clay above 60."
Now, I do not know what the gentleman means by "Te-
sponsible," but I will agree to let his money be deposited in
bank to the credit of any gentleman, not to be touched by me
or any one for me until the matter is decided, and with it I
will deposit any sort of a bond with ample security for my
compliance if I should lose, that the gentleman may require.
Will you do me the favor to pall on the gentleman and in-
form him I am ready to take up his challenge, and inform
me per mail immediately what he has to say ? And oblige
Yours, very respectfully.

NOTE BY THE EDITORS.
Preferring not to have any thing to do with wa-
gers upon the election, we take this mode, as the
most convenient, so far to comply with the request
of the writer of the above as to make his purpose
known to whomever it may concern. The name
will be made known on application at this office.

CONNECTICUT.-THE PROSPECT.
The New York Tribune, speaking of the Town
Elections which took place in a good part of the
State of Connecticut on Monday last, says: "The
result, so far as we have heard, is glorious, en- t
during at least three thousand majority for Mr.
Clay in November."

A PRIVATE MAIL CASE DECIDED.-Judge RAN- ti
DALL, of the United States District Court of Penn- p
sylvania, oft Monday delivered his opinion in the el
case of Mr. J. W. Hale, against whom a verdict p
was rendered a short time since for forty penalties Jk
of $50 each, for carrying letters out of the regular
ua
mail on a post route for profit. Judge Randall de-

4 LAIGE POLITICAL GATHERING.
A mass meeting of Whigs was held on the 27th
and 28th ultimo on the boundary line of Ohio
and Indiana. The numbers present," says the
Cincinnati Atlas, were variously estimated by
good judges at ninety thousand to one hundred
thousand. The tents extended for a distance of
nearly a nitle in length by half a mile in breadth,
one of which was one hundred and sixty feet long,
and another one hundred and forty feet ; the bands
of music had a tent especially devoted to their use
which was ope hundred feet long, and there were
many others from fifty to one hundred feet in length."
Addresses were delivered from five different stands
at the same time, so great was the throng, by Gov.
METCALFE, GOV. POINDEXTER, Gen. BELL, WM.
CRITTENDEN, Hon. 0. H. SMITH, and others.
The number of ladies present was estimated at ten
thousand!
ANOTHER.-Ten thousand persons, it is said, were
present at the Whig mass meeting held in York,
Pennsylvania, on Friday. Gen. MARKLE, the Whig
candidate for Governor of Pennsylvania was in at-
tendance. Addresses were made by TiHADDEUS
STEVENS, Esq. of pennsylvania, THOMAS YATES
WALSH, Esq. of Baltimore, and other distinguished
friends of the Whig cause.

HIRAM KETCHUM, Esq. was on Tuesday nomi-
nated for State Senator by the Whigs of the dis-
trict which includes the city of New York. Mr.
KETCHiM has few superiors at our bar, or in the
discussion of national politics, and has earned the
confidence of the Whigs of New York by years of
ardent, effective, unselfish devotion to their cause,
constantly declining nominations, and acting with a
view to public good alone, We trust he will accept
the present nomination, and, if so, we are sure he
will receive an enthusiastic and ardent support.

OUTRAGE ON THE AMERICAN FLAG.-The pa-
pers contain an account of a most vexatious affair
on the Coast of Africa-the Captain of a British
armed brig having boarded an American brig from
New Orleans, trampled on the American flag, bro-
ken open the Captain's trunk, and taken forcible
possession of the brig's papers; on account of
which he, with his officers and crew, abandoned his
vessel. The British Captain left her immediately
after, and she fell into the hands of the Portuguese,
who filled her with a cargo, of slaves. The British
vessel was the Alert, Captain Bosanquet, and the
subject of his outrageous conduct was Captain P.
C. Dumas, of the brig Cyrus, The affair will un-
doubtedly furnish food for a good deal of specula-
tion, if not for some powder. It is to be hoped
that the British Government will promptly punish
their insolent agent, remunerate the owners and
Captain of the abandoned vessel, and take all other
steps proper to prevent any agitation in the market
for salipetre and brimstone.

JAMES O. LAW, Esq. (the present Mayor) was
nominated by acclamation, by the Baltimore Whig
Convention on Wednesday evening, as their candi-
date for re-election to the office of Mayor of that city.

AMERICAN INSTITUTE.
The Seventeenth Annual Fair of the American Institute
commenced at Niblo's Garden, in New York, on Monday.
The number of persons in attendance during the day and
evening was larger, it ia stated, than on any previous open
ing day. The number of specimens exhibited on Monday
amounted to upwards of 2,500, and the display of articles
promises to be unusually rich, both in variety and elegance.
In the evening the annual address was delivered by the Hon.
LuTHnEB BAnDIsa, late Lieutenant Governor of New York.
During its delivery the audience occasionally expressed the
approbatios of those portions in which he compared the pros-
perity which must accrue to the country under a system of
protection, with the unavoidable dependence incident to a
system of free trade, by loud and enthusiastic applause.
Late in the evening there was a splendid display of fire-
works,


TIE PENNSYLVANIA ELECTION.

As it will be perhaps some days before we shall
receive the entire returns of the election held on
tuesday last for Governor of the State of Penn-
ylvania, it may not be amiss to place before our
leaders the following caution against exaggerated
expectations concerning the general resullh.

FROM THE NORTH AMERICAN 0oF wnDSDAn.
THE RESULT IN THE STATE.
We write at a moment when no return indicates the result
f our State Election. It is proper, however, to let our dis-
tant readers know what are the anticipations of well inform-
id men of all parties.
These anticipations are favorable to the election of Mr.
HCsK, and on these grounds. It must be remembered that
he election of a Whig Governor is without precedent in
'ennsylvania. Even when Harrison gained the State, the
election of the previous mouth was favorable to the Locofoco
arty. At the last gubernatorial election Mr. Porter's ma-
iorily was upwards of twenty thousand. To elect General
IARXKL, this majority must be neutralized-a possible, but
doubtful event. Another fact to be considered is, that Mr.
hunk, though properly identified as a Locofoco with the
'ree Trade party, is not, as an individual, regarded in that
onnexion. Hence he is certainly supported by many of his
political brethren, who, as Tariff men, will not vote for Polk.
'eking these considerations together, our friends must not
e surprised if Locofocoism so far triumphs in Pennsylvania
as to give a majority for Mr. Shunk. The Whigs, however,
under any circumstances, know this for a truth: that if the
leaders and organs of the Polk party had the common hones-
y to exhibit their true colors in Pennsylvania, the overthrow
f Locofocoism, and all who have any sympathy with it,
rould be'l inevitable. They know that if Free Trade had
een allied, as truly and fairly it should be, with the Shtuna
cket, it must hayve been defeated by a majority of #.Iouands
,pon thousands. If the people are blio enough not to see
tro.gh theudepicableodsee
trough thedespicable d.-cty of the Locofoco managers, d
who afl ".,iendship for the Tariff in the North while they I
oreaten in the South to dissolve the Union unless the Tariff
f 1842 be repealed, then the Whigs have lost Pennsylvania. i
We earnestly hope that such may not be the case. (
For the credit of the Republican name as well as the sub-
tantive interests of the country, we trust that we shall be
saved the record of the folly and ignorance of Pennsylvania,
which must be found in her support of men who aim at power
through falsehood and deception, and who would use that
power to cut off her resources anddestroy her enterprise. t
But if Mr. Shunk should have a majority, even a large
majority in thie State, we shall by no means consider the
satme secure I..r Mr. Polk. We know, on the contrary, that
here are many men of the Locofoco party, who, like Judge
Hollenback, may vote for Shank, but who will never consent
to vote for Polk, who they well know would make the de-
struction of the Tariff the first act of his administration.
Therefore let not the Whigs of Pennsylvania consider the
lay lost, whatever be the result of the Gubernatorial elec-
tion. If they have triumphed now, the State is theirs on the 1
first of November without a struggle. If they are defeated
now, so much the more reason for them to prepare with fresh
courage and devotion for the general contest. If it be true
that truth Is mighty and will prevail, they will prevail. Their
cause is truth, and while their party lives, they must hope
and labor for the cause.

Hoe. WILLIS GREEN, OF KENTUCKY.

This gentleman, (says the Richmond Whig,) from i
his position, is probably the best qualified of any to
judge correctly of coining events. On Friday even-
ing, in a brief address to the Whigs of Washington,
hlie thus expressed himself:
"Hon. WILLIs GREENz, of Kentucky, (who was also
lodging at Mrs. Potter's,) being loudly called for, appeared
at the window, and in a few appropriate remarks returned
his warm acknowledgments to the Whigs of Washington
for their uniform kindness, and stated that as he purposed to
remain in the city some days longer, he should avail himself
of another occasion to address them at length. Mr. Green
then alluded to the glorious triumph of the Maryland line,
notwithstanding the outrageous over-trampling, by fraud, of
a clearly established Whig majority in Baltimore-evincing,
as it did, the fact that Maryland was as ever steadfast in the
Whig faith. Mr. G. concluded by stating that the victory
in Maryland was but the commencement of the Whig tri-
umphs which would speedily come in-brilliant as it was,
carrying the Governor by the people for the first time, and
two-thirds of both branches of the Legislature, he felt con-
fident that the returns from Pennsylvania, Ohio, Georgia,
and New Jersey would be, if possible, more gladdening.
Anxious as he was to return to his family, yet, with such a
leader as Henry Clay-such a cause as that of the Whigs-
and such a people as those of Washington, he felt bound to
remain until the smoke of the October skirmish was over..
determined, however, at the grand battle in November to be
found in the ranks in Kentucky, charging home with her
gallant hunters upon the ranks of Locofocoiam."
Mr, Green then withdrew amid the loudest plaudits, and
the multitude gave nine hearty cheers for Clay, Frelinghuy-
sen, and Pratt, and six more for Kentucky's representatives,
Messrs Davis anid Green.

ROM THE PCRT GIBSON (Mrss.) HERAI4II OF SEPT. 19.
THE CRY IS STILL THEY COME."
With deep and heartfelt pleasure we announce to our read-
era that the paper lately established in the village of Gallatin,
Copiah county, under the title of the "Radical Democrat,"
has changed its politics and name, and now, under the title
of the Southern .rgus," makes battle in the cause of "the
Union, Clay, and Frelinghauysen."
We also, announce, on the authority of a friend, that Dr.
CARTWBionT, heretofore the leader of the Locofoco party of
Adams county, did, last week, at a Waig meeting, renounce
the falling faction of Locofocoism, and offer on the altar of
his country the use of his name, talents, and voice to the
cause of Clay and Freliraghuysen."
And we do further announce that the "Planter's Free
Press," published at Homesville, Pike county, has dropped
its neutrality, and hoists the glorious names of Clay and
Frelinghuysen."'
I-ROot Tax sAMn.
It will be remembered by some of our readers that the
Washington Globe recently announced that Colonel DAvID
SUORMAoER, lately a representative from Copiah county a!
our State Legislature, had left the Whig ranks and gone over
to Polk and Texas. We were disinclined to believe the story
at the time, and now, to expose the base falsehood of which
the Globe's correspondent was guilty, we insert the following
letter from the Colonel himself:
SepTvxncss 18, 1844.
Mr. JACOBS : I have been informed that a correspondent of
the Globe at Washington, writing from Copiah county, in
this State, had put my name among the changes in that
county from Whig to Locofoco. What authority that cor-


respondent had for making such a statement I know not, for
I have always been a Whig and am still one, and if alihve and
able to get to the polls in November next, will certainly vote
for Olay and Frelinghuysen.

As a train of cars was passing over the Harlem river, on

bridge, and plunged into the river. The coupling attached

damaged, but fortunately no person was injured.

WonDERF iL ESCAPE AND PnovIDENTIAL Rsscui.-One
of the most thrilling incidents we have ever noticed, showing
a wonderful escape from an awful death, occurred at Tusca-
oosa, Alabama, a few days since.
On the evening of the 17th ultimo, Mr. Thomas S. Tal-
ord, a respectable citizen of Tuscaloosa county, while in
mrsuit of his horse, fell into a well between seventy and
eighty feet deep. He remained there that night and the next
lay, crushed by the fall on bricks at the bottom. No person
heard his cries for help until a little boy, between sunset and
lark, threw a dead pig into the well. Mr. Talford then spoke,
and the news soon spread. Ropes were brought, and Mr.
loseph T. Pearce, a worthy me.chanit, descended the well
with a rope tastened to his body, and, fixing another rope
round the chest of Mr. Talford, both were drawn up. The
Monitor states that Mr. Talford was almost in the last stage
of exhaustion and suffering. He had been in the well about
twenty-three hours, doubled up as he fell, unable to move
his limbs. He was unable to stand or to move his legs; the
concussion of the spinal nerves had paralyzed him. He was
taken to a dwelling, where he received the attention of seve-
ral medical gentlemen, and the prospect of his recovery is
fair, though his extremities were still torpid. Mr. T. is fifty-
mone years of age, and the father of six children. His prefer.
ration from a dreadful and lingering death was truly provi-
lential, and had he not been discovered, his disappearance
would have been a painful mystery.
The well is near the site of the old Eagle Hotel, which
was burnt nine years ago, and was known only to a very few
individuals, being surrounded by tall weeds, with no post or
frame to mark the spot.-Picayune.

A Bogus Press for making counterfeit money was dug up
near Lyme, Huron county, Ohio, on Monday last. A fel-
low by the name of Gay, sentenced to the penitentiary for
burglary, made confessions that put the people in possession
of the Bogus mint.

The Whigs of the County of Loudoun, in Virginia, pro-
pose holding a Grand Mass Meeting in a beautiful grove
about half a mile southwest of Leesburg, to commence on
the 15th instant and to continue for two days; to which they
cordially invite the citizens and Glee Club of Washington
city and county. We promise them a reception in every
way worthy of the Whig county of the Old Dominion.
Ample provision will be made on the ground for dining the
company, and at night the string of the latch of every Whig
house in Leesburg and neighborhood will he found on the
outside.

NAVAL GE sERAL CouRT MARTrIA.-This Court met at
the National Hotel yesterday, when Captain NEWTON made
his defence. We understand that the case is now left for the
decision of the Court. There was a large number of persons
in attendance yesterday, to hear Captain Newton's defence.

CENTRAL FEMALE FREE SCHOOL.
We understand that the ladies who had a Tea Party in
the School-room attached to the Fourth Presbyterian Church
on Wednesday evening intend to have another this evening,
to which they invite the friends of education. It is hoped
that a numerous company will be in attendance; as this free
school is open to children of all denominations, is well con-
ducted, and has been beneficial to a great number of indi-
gent female children. We understand that the scholars will
be in attendance this evening, and sing several appropriate
hymns and pieces of music.

SIXTH WARD ALDERMAN'S ELECTION.
We are glad to learn that Mr. A. H. LAwazxcz has con-

confidently expect the election of Mr. Lawrence by a large

The ladies of the "tea party" recently given at the Navy
Yard for the benefit of the poor, in tendering the expression
of their sincerest thanks to the many kind friends who so
generously assisted them in their humble undertaking, can-
not refrain from acknowledging, in an especial manner, the
debt of gratitude due by them to the Marine Band for the
. Concordd of sweet sounds" with which the company was
nightly favored, and which imparted so much hilarity to the
pleasures of each successive evening. May he who is the
Father of the poor lavish his choicest gifts upon all who
have thus diffused their charities among his children.

We have reported majorities from three counties

follows: Guernsey 200, Harrison 224, Belmont
200. They look quite favorable.

PENNSYLVANIA.

We give below the corrected returns, including
reports of every description, which reached us last
night in relation to the election for Governor of the
State of Pennsylvania. They show that in many
of the counties the Whigs did -not put forth. their
strength, as they ought to have done. In Lan-
caster county alone, the Examiner informs us, the
Whigs can easily poll one thousand more votes than
were polled on Tuesday, and they promise 1to do
this at the November election. The other coun-
ties, it is believed, will also next month increase
their votes for Mr. CLAY, as they did for General
HARRISON in 1840.

are elected to Congress: Lewis C. Levin and

FATAL AccrIDRT.-On Sunday afternoon last, four boys,
of twelve to fifteen, were playing with an earth.-car, which
they had placed on the track of the Harlem Railroad, above
Tuckahoe, which is the present terminus of the running of
the road. They would draw the car up a pretty steep grade,
and then ride down upon it. At last one of them, a lad of
fourteen, named Strong, was running down before the car,
throwing stones, -&c. on the track to jolt those inf the car,
when it caught him, threw him down, ran upon him, and
a wheel stopped across his neck, killing him instantly. His
companions drew the car off him, but he was entirely deed.
They then ran off and hid, supposing that they should be
hung if caught, and remained in hiding till the body was
found, when one of them ventured out of the woods, and
finally brought out his comrades. They were examined se-
parately before a coroner's jury, and their testimony agreed
so perfectly as to leave no doubt of the truth of their story.

will state that, with one I sold, I have been assured by the purcha-
ser that he cut in five months with it, with a four-horse power;
200,000 feet of lumber, and that it did not get materially out ow

Mr. George Page has constructed for oe a small water wheel
and forcing-pump, by which Che water, from a very small branch,
is forced through a lead pipe about seven hundred feet, overcom-
ing a perpendicular elevation of eighty feet, The water thus
supplies my farm-yard, my gardens, bath houses, dwellings, &e.
and hap given me great satisfaictien. It has been in operation for
eighteen monthly, and is very easily and with little trouble kef I
in order. He has also constructed for me a corno-mill and cot -
crusher, moved by horse power, which give me entire satisfac-
tion. JOHN GLENN.

Psaa-rgera will observe that nor, time is losi in Lynchburg, and
that there is ni- night or earl) morning travel in stages by this
route ; the pre,-eti arrsijernenrn on the cnnal is better than the
former one, as by leavit.g t inn vhe i'r, a duy is eave. S, and, the
nights being much cooler than the days, end the accommodations
for sleeping good, time passes more rapidly and agreeably.
Passengers from Baltimore, Washington, and Fredericksburg
reach the White Sulphur in the same time and at the same hour
with those by Louisa Railroad and Staunton route, and with more
comfort to themselves, as by that route it is necessary to rise
early and travel late; their first day's ride, as advertised by them,
brings them into Staunton by 11 o'clock at night.
Returning from Lynchburg the boats leave every day (Sundays
excepted) at 6 A. M. and arrive in Richmond next day at 1 P.

commtaiinded the admiration of the profession throughout th.' world
could not have left a more valuable legacy to mankind than the
recipe for making his INFALLIBLE HEATrlH PILLS, which
is now possessed by a physician in New York, who was once i
student with Dr. Rush, and who has manufactured and sold a very
large quantity of them, and they have been so successful as to be
known as the Poor Man's Friend.
They are perfectly safe for all ages and cexes, and are a sore

the common diseases to which the human system is subject.
