The Richmond Enquirer of the second instant,
has the following authentic account (given, in all
likelihood, by learned Wig doctors,) of a nzw-boin
amalgamation infant, which has been produi-
ced, we suppose, by some unnatural corj unction
of the planets, which occurred at the moment
when modern whiggery and this creature, its em-
bryotic emblem, was conceived. The wise an-
cients were obliged to look into the entrails of ani-
mals to penetrate the latent embryo of political
events; but we are more favored, it seems. Now-
a-days creatures are born, whose external shapes,
a year in advance of the actual development,
perfectly prefigure and make obvious to the senses
of the most obtuse, the form which the deepest
laid political plots are to assume when hatched,
We ask the public to weigh attentively the accu-
rate professional description of the incarnation of
modern whiggery, to be found in the annexed arti-
From the Richmond Enquirer.
Why do Doctors Goddard and Harris sport their
Lusus Naturae at the Eagle hotel, at twenty-five
cents admittance, when the whigs have an equally
extraordinary phenomenon to ihow for nothing?
The parallel is really remarkable. The Doctors
thus describe their prodigy, which was born in
Orange county, in April, 1835:
"The head consists of two craniums, united to-
gether by the junction of the parietal, frontal,
and occipital bones, (and perhaps the malar,)
having a deep sulcus, or depression at their junc-
tion. It has two b-ains, separated by a partition
of dura mater; two noses, two mouths, two chins,
two eyes on the outside of the noses, and a double
ege between them-having two perfect eyeballs,
separated by a ligamenlous partition and covered
by eyelids which resemble the lids of two eyes united
at their angles. At the intersection ot di-tgonal
lines drawn from either mouth to the opposite
nose, is an aperture, or foramen, five-eighths of an
inch-in depth. There are two ears, one neck,
asd one body, which separates at the umbilicus
into two distinct pelves. On the anterior part of
the thorax, there are two amaaree, and two on the
posterior part. There are two spines, and two sets
of legs and arms, &c. The uimbilical cord is
large, and contains two sits of vessels. The exa-
mination of the internal organs was not permitted
by the proprietor."
Suppose our slangwhanging neighbor were to
describe his "Polycephalous party"-in what
apter terms could he couch his description ? He
migbt truly say, "To beseen at the Whig Office,
a strange Lusus Politicus, whose head consists of
two Craniums, (Harrison and White, and he might
add three, viz. Webster) united together-with
two brains, mouths, eyes, spines, and a double set
of vessels, legs and arms-the Monster put to-
gether in one body of Whiggery."
Thanks to the beneficence of nature, it seldom

permits such natural prodigies to live and disgust
the community. And we may equally add, thanks
to the wisdom of the People, they will not suffer
such an abominable Coalition as is now offered to
them in tlhe Whig electoral ticket, to thrive by
their support.
It will not be difficult for our readers now to
comprehend what the coming of these" two noses,
two mouths, two chins, two eyes on the outside of
the noses, and a double eye between them," portend-
ed in April, 1835, when the coalition was formed.
They at this moment see these double set of fea-
tures actually growing on the single body of
Wiggery. The two spines and the two sets of
legs" are also in fine keeping. It is essential
that there should be two sets of legs-one set to
travel in the north and the other in the south; and
a spine to each to hold them together, is also indis-
pensable. All this is obvious enough.
But we would have one feature in this monstrous
political embodiment particularly noted, viz:
" The double eye, between the noses," consisting of
"two perfect eye-balls," and "a lgamentous par-
tition covered with eyelids which resemble the lids
of two eyes." This medley, right in the middle
of the Janus-head of this prodigy of Wiggery,
does not require the hieroglyphic skill of an Egyp-
tian priest to decypher. The two perfect eye-
balls, put between the two noses to lead them,
evidently designate CLAY and CALHOUN, who ma-
nage the two noses, Harrison and White. And
"the ligamentous partition with eyelids, which
resemble the lids of two eyes," making a pair of
false eyes between thz two perfect eye-balls,"
is a representation of that poor blind fellow, Web-
ster, who is as insignificant in the present trium-
virate as Lepidusintligaof Rome.

wretched candidates, every one of whose tickets
will turn out a blank. If, however, against our
warning, any one should appear to back the
statements of Gales, Green, &c., it shall be duly

The following passage from Mr. Bancroft's late
admirable oration, finely illustrates the different
characters of the antagonist parties in this country:
"The very nature of a popular government re-
quires that the people shall elect their own Chief
Magistrate, but the whigs deliberately conspire to
take this election from the people and transfer it
to the House of Representatives, pleading the let-
ter of the constitution, and applying to ordinary
elections the remedy provided Jor a contingency,
which ought always, if possible, to be avoided.
Again: the very nature of society and government
require union. Concert of feeling and action is
essential to the 'continuance of free institutions.
When the people cease to have morally a unity of
character, when there is no longer a common idea
which the country represents, when the election
of public servants is no longer guided by princi-
ples and feelings pervading and uniting our widely
extended land, discordant factions will take the
place of federal union, and power will be
wrested from the people to ba surrendered
tr--a- combination of those factions. It was
a common sympathy with our sister St4es
which achieved the revolution, and which foriedl
the federal union. But the letter of the constitu-
tion permits an infinite variety of parties and an
infinite number of candidates ; and the whtg
claims his ves;ed right under the constitution of'
attempting to defeat all concert of action, to break
up a!l moral union, to destroy all sympathy be-
tween the States, by assuming a position of insu-
lated surliness, and obtaining for his candidate a
name, for which not one other State in the Union
offers one solitary vote. What scenes of confu-
sion would ensue if the democratic party-but no,
that is impossible. The democratic party is the
party of harmony. Union,' said the father of
his country, is the point of our political for-
tress, against which the batteries of internal and
external enemies will be most constantly and
actively, though often covertly and insidiously di-
rected.' Listening to the counsels of Washington,
the democracy 'frowns on the first attempt to alien,
ate one portion of our country from the rest, or to
enf,-eble the sacred ties which now link together its
various parts.' It is the whigs of the S'uth who 'eal
cu!ate the value of the Union;' it is the whigs of the
North who desire to consummate disunion, and see
Massachusetts 'blotted from the map of the States,'
rather than reconciled to the country. It is the
whigs who, under the forms of the Constitution,
but in defiance of its spirit, by the multiplicatinn
of candy dates, strive to wrest from the people the
choice of their own magistrates, at one election
getting up a special candidate fr 'solitary' South
Carolina, and at another a special candidate for
'solitary' Massachusetts."

We annex a letter from this gentleman respond-
ing to some libe's of the Louisville Journal in re-
gard to hWs speculation in the public linds. It ap-
pears that Major Moore, so far from being engaged
in defrau-ling the Indians in purchases made from
them, is but a purchaser at second hand from the
very honorable John Bell and others, who were the
immediate dealers with the Indians. The attempt
of the libeller, who figures in the Louisville Jour-
nal, to bring home to the friends of the adminis-
tration the imputation it makes, is signally unfortu-
nate. The frauds, if any have been committed on
the poor Indian, must be laid to that fraud-hating
speculator, John Bell, and other enemies of the
administration; and the profit, if any is to be made
on the future sale of the purchased land, is, for
the most part, to go to capitalists of Boston and
New York, who are also inimical to the President
and Vice President.
Why did not Mr. Bell, when so anxious to have
an investigation of the dealings in other quarters
with Indians, ask a committee to l~ok into
his own?

From the Louisville Public advertiser.
A friend has forwarded me the Louisville Jour-
nal, containing a series of numbers over the signa-
ture of "\ eritas," in which my name is occasion-
ally used in reference to the sale of Chickasaw
reservations. At a suitable time 1 may unmask
the veteran calumniator, whose hatred of the Pre-
sident extends itself to all who happen to enjoy his
confidence. This shameless slanderer says: "'The
manner in which the purchases are made of the
poor, friendless Ind'ans, deserves to be noticed:
one dollar, or perhaps a bottle of whiskey, a
blanket, or some trifle at the time the contract is
entered into; the deed is then drawn, signed,

sealed, and delivered," &c. [ have never, either
on my own account, or as one of the agents of the
Boston or New York companies, made an original
purchase of. an Indian; yet we devoted the funds
confided to us to the purchase of claims originally
purchased by men of unimpeachable character;
for example, Col. Jno. Bell, Rob't Gordon, and'
Gen. Willis Cherry, acting bfor Lapice, Wilkins,
& Co., Natchez; Col. Abner Prewet, Mr. G. M.
Brown, Armstead Barton, Jos. Matthews, and
Sackfield Maclin. To Bell and Gordon we paid
a bonus of two hundred and fifty dollars upon
each section; to Col. Barton about the same, and
to the residue a portion of the land, or the profits
resulting from the sale of it. I have now before
me a list of the sections which have been paid out
amounting to 60201 sections, costing $559,661.
It will be perceived that the average amount
paid for each section is 945 dollars, nearly all of
which is now in the Bank of Pontotoc, to the cre-
dht ofthe Indians. Has the Government ever ob-
tained a better price fo)r its Lnd, and do we merit
the abuse which has been bestowed upon us by this
anonymous scribbler? The author of Veritis'
insinuates that I am the agant of Mr. Van Buren,
and that I have been favored by the President.
Of those who compose the Boston Company, two-
thirds are temperate but decided friends to their
... .. ,iItr ,at mann Mr. V Whster. In relation

tion district, and beaten for Congress, I should
have fled from the State, and devoted my leisure
to calumniating the President, instead of encounter-
ing all the privations incident to an examination
of a new country, I should have been hailed as a
good whig, and escaped the abuse of"Veritas."
MASON county, Aug. 15, 1836.

In 1820 General Harrison was a member of the
Ohio Legislature, where a motion was introduced
in relation to the law of creditor and debtor, which
is taken from the journals as follows:
"Mr. FITHIAN then moved to strike out the 19th
section of said bill, as follows:
"Be it further enacted, That when any person
shall be imprisoned, either upon execution or
otherwise, for the non-payment of a fine, or costs,
it shall be lawful for the sheriff of the county to scll.
out such person as a servant to any person within this
State, whu will pay the amount due for the shortest pe-
riod of service, of which sale public notice sh'ill be
given of at least ten days, and upon such sale being tf
fected the sheriff shall give to the purchaser a certificate
thereof, and deliver ovtr the prisoner to him; from
which time the relation between such purchaser and
prisoner shall be that of master and servant until the
lim-e of service expires, and fur injuries done by either
remedy shall be had in the same manner as is or may
be provided by lawn the case oJ masters and appren-
tices. But nothing herein contained shall be con-
strued to prevent persons being discharged from
imprisonment according to the provisions of the
thirty seventh section of the act to which this is
supplementary, if it shall be considered expedient
to grant such discharge. Provid-. d that the court,
in pronouncing sentence upon any person or per-
soes convicted under this act or the act to v, which
this is supplementary, may direct such person or
persons to be detained in prison until the fine be
paid, or the person or persons otherwise disposed
of agreeably to the provisions of this act."
It is stated that the motion was decided in the
affirmative-yeas 20, nays 12-and that GENERAL
So General Harrison is the advocate for surrzn-
during the unfortunate debtor, as a slave, to a pur.
chaser, because he has the misfortune to be unable
to pay a debt which he had contracted, or a fine
imposed upon him.
At a time when the voice of the nation calls
loudly for the abolishment of imprisonment for
debt, an individual is before the nation as a
candidate for the Presidency, who has voted to
sell every honest unfortunate individual into
sLAvEtY who cannot liquidate a debt. What
a.pfcture is here exhibited to freemen, and those
who advocate and labor in the cause of humanity!!
Mark the consistency of the whigs; their candi-
date for the Presidency voting to sell white men
as slaves; and their candidate for the Vice Presi-
dency ready to sever the Union to abolish the
slavery of the blacks.
We ask the people of both the slave and non
slaveholding States to look at these facts.

From the recklessness of the opposition, and
their entire disregard of the truth in many of their
assertions, it would seem that they are driven to
depravity, as well as desperation.
The following furnishes a sample of their mis-
statements of the most recent date.
First, comes Mr. Clay, who declared in his late
dinner harangue, that the Secretary of the Trea-
sury "was bound" to receive in payment of all
public dues bank paper, "until Congress inter-
T his we proved in Saturday's paper was not the
case. The resolution gave the Secretary the op-
tion to receive specie or notes of specie paying
banks, but did not deny him the right to reject
the latter, which it gave him the option to receive.
Besides, his assertion is opposed flatly by the re-
port of a Congress committee in 1824, and the
whole practice of the Government since 1816.
Second, comes the Albany Daily Advertiser,
which contained the following:
"We learn that either a new order or an expla-
nation of the old order has been issued from the
Treasury Department, which is playing the mis-
chief with the western banks, and the rates of
exchange between the Atlantic towns and the in-
terior. It is a direction issued to the deposit
banks to hold all the specie paid into them on ac-
count of public lands, as a special deposit of the
We are authorized to say that this statement is
without the least shadow of foundation whatever.
No such "direction" as above stated has been

given, or even thought of, by the Treasury Depart-
ment. *
Third, comes honest Zach. Poulson, of Phila-
delphia, with the following:
"By the report of the Secretary of the Trea-
sury, it appears that the surplus in the Treasury
amounted, on the first instant, to upwards of FOUR-
TY-TWO MILLIONS OF DOLLARS. It is probable that
the amount to be distributed on the 1st of January
will exceed all the calculations made at the time
of the enactment of the distribution bill."
This could have been none other than a wilful
misrepresentation, for the report of the Secretary
of the Treasury stated expressly the sum iu
the Treasury to be somewhat less than thirty-eight
millions; and the balance of the public money was
at the credit of public officers, for the purpose of
disbursement, and therefore could not be in the
Treasury. Again: What is m-ant by "the distri-
bution bill?" We have heard of no such "enact-
ment." We know of no other bill than the "de-
posite bill," which has relation to the surplus in
the Treasury, and that does not remove a single

one in Bristol. So that our next House of Repre.
sentatives will stand, politically, just as did the
last." -

Extract ef a letter to the Editor, doted
1"NEwPoaT, Sept. 1, 1836.
Gentlemen: Our semi-annual election for the
choice of representatives to the' next Legislature
of this State, was holden on Tuesday last, and the
same has shown a very respectable accession to
the ranks of democracy, bince our election in
April last. In honest truth, democracy is here
triumphant, and as I truly believe, at this time
more so than in any other State in the Union.
Whiggery, so called, hardly dares to show its
head-the floods have come upon it, and the
fountains of the great deep seem to have been
broken up. In the aristocratic city of Providence,
with its twenty banks, and, its Aic Biddfe's
agency, we have had a signal triumph. That
city has returned to the aext Legislature
four men who are thoroughly anti-bank men; one
of whom, Mr. John H. Clark, is among thle most
distinguished and able men oflis t'ate, and is
an ardent supporter of Mr. Vi i ltren for the.
Presidency. Let it be remember, that in Au-
gust, a year ago, this city gave ft aajory of six hunin-
dred against the democratic candidates for Con-
gresq, and in favor of ('ristam Burges, who thanked
Goal that lie never had been a democrat. Please
to bear in mind what I now say, that in November
next, this city will give a majority of its votes for
the Van Buren electoral ticket.
"The decisive course of this State will have its
influence upon the States adjoining ts, and you
mar, I think, rest assured that Massadiusetts will
follow th'e example which her little sister Rhode
Island wiil now set her. I am no prophet, but "nous
MOBILE, August 24.
We claim, it will be seen, a clear majority of
eleven in the House of Representatives. We are
assured by many that Mr. McHenry of Shelby,
who is one of those that voted last session for the
rescinding resolutions, is with us, as is also Mr.
Smith of Wilcox. As it is said, however, that
Mr. McHenry voted for rescinding on the ground
that the original nomination was extra-legislative
and improper, and Mr. Smith is very eagerly
claimed by the Whigs, for their comfort and to
make "assurance doubly sure," for the present,
we surrender these gentlemen into their holy
keepinie. In the Senate, all parties, we believe,
are satisfied there is a tie-learing the nett Van
Buren majority, on joint ballot, of eleven votes.
We have said nothing about tie popular vote as
exhibited by the late elections. We are told,
however, that it preponderated largely in favor of
Mr. Van Buren. Let our friends abroad then
give themselves no uneasiness about Alabama.
She will be found in November, where she over
has been, in the first rank of the democratic States
of the Union.-Commrnercial Rekister.

Information has been received at the Depart-
ment of State, from the Consil of the United
States at Vera Cruz, of the loss on the 19th ult.,
of the schooner Peter D. Vroon, of Philadelphia,
E. F. Kelly, master, bound for Vera Cruz, upon a
point of the main land called: Juan Angel, forty
miles to the north of the last mentioned port. It
is stated that there was no loss of lives, and that

for saying "lie lived in the United States of Penn-

From the Montgomery (Ala.) Advertiser.
We refer our readers to a very able defence of
the conduct of Major General Jesup, since he has
been entrusted with the rnanagnment of the Creek
war, written by Captain J. F. Lane of the United
States Army, and headed: "Remarks upon an
editorial article, headed 'the Army,' and publish-
ed in the Courier and Enqurer of 26th July,

Upon an editorial article, headed" the Army," pub-
lished in the Courier and Eruirer of the '.6th
July, 1836.

The article is offensive in the language used,
and incorrect in the statements presented, in re-
ference to the difficulties between General Scott
and General Jesup.
But for the injurious character of these mis-
statements, their Correction mitht be left to the
anticipated investigation, or to; the voluntary ac-
tion of General Scott, who will, it is hoped, in-
dignantly contradict imputation upon a brother
officer which he well knows tobe untrue.
A brief sketch of facts will at least suspend
public opinion until official inquiry shall exhibit a
conclusive exposition of the questions in issue.
While there was yet a probability of bringing
the Seminole war to a close, General Scott was
directed to give his attention to the Creek diffi-
culties. Some time after, thetisedifficulties grew
more serious, and General Scott being deemed
fully occupied by the as yet unchecked Semi-
noles, Major General Jesup was en the 19th May,
especially charged with the direction of the Creek
He met at Augusta, Major General Scott, who
had left Florida, where much certainly remained
to be done, to assume the command in the Creek
country. General Jesup willingly consented to
take the second place, proceeded with General
Scott to Columbus, and thence to Tuskegee,
Alabama, and assumed command, on the 9th June,
of the western or Alabama frontier. General Scntt

SIt is unnecessary t examine this plan in detail.
Had all the means been in readiness, and had they
been energetically and rapidly applied, it is po-si-
ble that the result might have been successful.
As it was, all felt its inapplicability.
The frequent alarms, the excited state of public
feelings, the eager restlessness of the volutiteer
troops, and, above all, the devastations daily re-
ported, called imperatively for immediate and ef-
fective action.
The mode of operations kept in view by Gen.
Jesup was, to strike the enemy at once, to check
the barbarities upon tha whites by forcing the In-
dians ts defend their own families, and instead of
forcing them from Florida, 6y sentinels posted
from Columbus to Flint river, and from Irwinton
to Montgomery, to seek them in their camps, find,
fight and capture them.
Anxious to secure the country and Gen. Scott
himself from the evil consequences of a plan
which there were neither meaus nor time to exe,
cute, Gen. Jesup determined to protect his frontier
by prompt movements upon the In-ians, in as filr
as it was possible to make them without disobey-
ing the orders of Gen. Scot.
On June 9th he assumed command of the Ala
bama troops, t.e disposable force being seven
hundred volunteers under Maj. Gen. Patteson.
The friendly Indians were ordered to rendez-
vous, the warriors to join as auxiliaries, their fam-
ilies to remain at the reiidezvous and be fed by the

started to Irwinton, TAKING IN HIS ROUTE the
camp of Eneah Mico and Eneah Mathla, where
the hostile Indians were concentrated with their
families, property, plunder, &c.

with a portion of his band, came in to a friendly

dred and fifty warriors.
The singular order from Gen. Scott "to cease
all offensive movements," was here received.-
Confident that ifGen. Scott knew his force and
position, he would desire him to improve the
sought for opportunity of striking the enemy,
Gen. Jesp despatched an express with a letter,
from which the sentence below is extracted, on
the Morning of the 28th June, pushed forward to
the enemy's camp.
General Jesup to General Scott in reply to the
first letter forbidding offensive movements:
"Five miles lfron Eieali Mathla's Camp, Ju ie 17,1836.
"I would have struck the enemy to-night but
for your let 'er; if he is not struck to-mnorrow morn-
ing he will escape for the present; but the force I
have in the field is sufficient to pursue and reduce
The answer reached General Jesup in the just
deserted camp of Eneah Mathia, when active
pursuit was alone necessary to entire 6uccess-
containing a peremptory repetition to cease in-
stantly all offensive operations.
General Jesup gave directions for large recon-
noitering parties to hold the enemy in check, and
hastened in person to Fort Mitchcll, eighteen
miles distant, to see General Scott. The latter
having lt'eft for Columbus, a second express was
sent to him, with a letter stating frankly General
Jesup's opinions, and earnestly entreating himI
(General Scott) to adopt a different and more
efficient course. The question of its publication
is referred to General Scott, who can thus satis-
factorily answer some of the offensive imputations
upon General Je-up's MOTIVES.
The memoranda of this date by the writer, re-
fute the charge attempted to be made against
-Ganeral Jesup. of taking a position in which sub-,
sistence and forage could not be procured. Be--
sides that taken from the enemy, eighty thousand
rations ordered from New Orleans by General
Jesup before he left Washington City, arrived

hausted, within eighteen miles of the camp, and a
considerable quantity of fobiage, pursuant to his
previous directions, was provuied and ready at a
point twenty miles distant.
19th June.-General Jesup returned to camp.
The reconnoitering' parties brought ira several pmrs-
oners, and certain information of the hostile par-
ties. This information removed the only serious
objection that had been made against General
Jesup's operations, viz: that he would force the
Indians across the river toward Florida. DaEcirT-
LY THE iLEVERBE had actually occurred.
The parties on the river preparing to cross, fled
inwards to the swamps, under shelter of the main
body; in a few instances leaving their families in
their flight. Some of them were brought in with
the prisoners.
20th June.-General Scott continued uishaken
in his resolution that the enemy should not be

beaten, except by the regular course of his own
"plan of campaign."
The communication earnestly urging a change
of this determination, had elicited only replies of
the most exceptionable nature.
, As the orders were well known to all, an of
fensive movement could not be made without
avowed disobedience of orders, and this in a camp
only pr, served from mutiny against the "uinac-
countable rnruMxSss" of General Scott by the
most strenuous efforts af the officers.
Even had G-neral Jesup determined to disre-
gard the repeated and peremptory order, it
would have been impossible to attack and effec-
tually conquer the enemy before an order for his
arrest could have reached him from General
Scott, (only 28 miles distant.)
Thus compelled to inaction, he sent out some of
the prisoners to summon the enemy to surrender,
and kept the troops in position to enforce the sum-
mons. The consequence was, that on the 22d three
hundred hostile warriors laid down their arms, and
one thousand of the hostile pariy surrendered
themselves unconditionally prisoners.
The position of Gen. Jesup presented no alterna-
tive. He could not remain under the command of
one who had alike disregarded the good of the pub-
lic service, and the personal feelings and profes-
sional reputation of those who had labored most
zealously and efficiently.
In three days after assuming the command Gen.

against General Scott, and rendered necessary his
immediate arrest .
Desirous of withdrawing himself from the duty
with the least prejudice to Gen. Scott and the
public service, yet without admitting that he was
in error, heperceived and determined to adopt
the oily mode that would relieve the subject from
all e'mbarrassmens, viz: expressing to the Presi-
dent, in a communication which was of no necessity
official, his desire to be relieved, This could only
be done through a mutual acquaintance-it was so
done, by letter of same date with that to Gen.
Scott just quoted.
The President thought proper to render this
letter an official document, and as such it is to be
The documents forwarded by Gen. Scott, in-
clumding his letters to Gen. Jesup, attacking him
with the severest censures, and in effect prefer-
ring thee most sft ious charges, were then before
the Guvernment, were considered by the Presi.
dent, and on Gen. Scott's own showing the de-
cisimn wahs probably wounded.
The Editor's assertion that the communication
was ''a stab in the dark," I' an attack upon Gen.
Scott," I'an attempt to procure hi-i removal," can
now be understood anid appreciated.
Cen. Scott was advised on the 20th that the ap-
pTication to be relieved would be made. As it
wa- sent through aler, hi, KNEW it was an uordri-
CIAL communication, and should have appreciated
the motive which induced ocn. Jesdp to-iciaode
chiie preferring charges against him.
Geni. Jesup's opinions of his errors and delays
were fully, emphatically and earnestly urged upon
The papers containing the whole qorrespon- i
dence were placed by Gen. Scott before the Go-
vernment; his recall was tie revulsion of his own
attack on Gen. Jesup, or rather the inevitable re-
suit of exhibiting the circumstances.
The request to bh relieved having been made,
Gen. Jesup left Camp flatcheechubbee to report t
in person to Gen. Scott, Illness, the consequence i
of excessive fatigue, stopped him at Fort Mitchell, i
and the writer, a member of his staff, was ordered
to Columbus to communicate with Gen. Scott.
In the course of the protracted official conver
satiorn with Gen. Scott, theconsiderations bearing
upon the unpleasant difference were b rotntioned t
and discussed, especially those having reference to
Gen. Jebup's request to be relieved. The occa-
sion being presented, it gave the writer great plea-
sure to bear w witness to the unvarying tenor of
Gen. Jesup's expressions and conduct towards
Gen. Scott, and still greater pleasure to hear them
gratefully acknowledged by him.
Th ie subsequent withdrawal of Gen. Scott of
what was personally offensive, reduced the differ-
ences to questions purely official, sand tohil deci-
ded upon by the Government before which Gen.
Scott had laid themn, both officers continued in the
performance of tnaueir respective duties. h

On the same day General Scott moved smuth t
and commenced active operations, pursuant to his
plan of campaign, without having received the
arms and ordnance stores for which he had been
some time waiting.
On July 2d he reached Fort Mitchell, having,
by fatiguing and difficult marches swept the coun-
try, as proposed in his plan, from the south north-
waird, and captured one Cnrian and one Indian ne-
grse. d
The chief, Jim Henry, taken by the Indian war- 1
iors, in the vicinity of Gen. Patterson's camp. w
A detachment of six hundred men passed into 1
the camp where the hostile had taken refuge. All,
with the exception of Neth Mico and thirty men,r
escapedt. Leaving ascertained their routes, nine
hundrien of' them weare taken on the nintb and 10th
July. -
Twenty-seven hundred of the hostile party, in-
cluding eight hundred warriors, and including for-
ty criminals delivered to the civil authorities, have
been taken, sent west, and are now probably at
their destined homes.
Their capture closed the Creek war. The sub-
sequent difficulties have grown out of causes
connected with the removal.
The incidents of the war are mentioned without 1
any i;.tent to claim credit for any individual-es-
pecially not for Glen. Jesup, who, in his official re-
ports, has assigned the mei-it of what was done by
the army corps he commanded, to the officers and
soldiers of the Alabama troops, and to the officers
and friendly warriors of the Indian bands who com-
posed that corps.
It is doubtless true that the successful issue was

wounded. The result of this engagement is
eighteen killed and five prisoners, comprising
the whole party of the Indians, without any loss
of killed or wounded on our part. The Indians
were on foot, and had little or nothing with them
except their guns and munitions of war. We
have the prisoners with us, and are at a loss to
know what to do with them.
We wish your Excellency would inform us
what disposition to make of them.
Respectfully, your obedient servants,

on Monday night last from Micanopy, bringing in-

evening of the 20th instant-Fort Drane distant
10 miles, having been abandoned on the 6th, was
understood to be occupied by the Indians. Capt.
Childs, of the 3d Artillery, commanding at Mica- ,-
Mopy, on the arrival of Major Pierce, had-contemn-
plated a movement on the enemy. This was at
once sanctioned by Major Pierce, who marched at
2 o'clock on the morning of the 21st ult. to find
the enemy. His force was composed of Captain
Child's company of the 3d Artillery, of a detach-.
ment of the 1st Artillery, and a field piece, man-
ned by a detachment of Capt. Gall's company of
the 4th Artillery-in all 110 men.

the Indians, from the day when, to enter upon his
command, he, with an escort of one hundred and
twenty men, pushed through the heart of the ene-

there were six hundred hostile warriors, to the
time when his orders were (and a.re) obeyed by
the Indian chiefs with the punctuality and prompt-
ness of military discipline-by his measures for
raising an Indian force for separating the friendly

the inaction imposed on them by want of arms,

We received on Saturday night last the follow,-'
ng information, in an extra from the office of the
Milledgeville Standard of Unifn:
Friday, August 26, 1836. ?
1 o'clock, P. M.M
The following letter was received by express
this morning, by his Excellency, Gov. Schley.
PixsumTow', August 19, 1836.
His Excellency Gov. Schley:.
Sin: On Wednesday evening last a c.mp of
Indians was discovered by Messrs. P. R. Oliver
aitd John Guy, back, of Guy's plantation, and near
the river, six miles below this place. News of the-
same was immediately communicated to the citi-
zens of the neighborhood, and we succeeded in,
collecting a company of thirty-eight men by 10
o'clock the next morning. Wi proceeded to the
Indian camp in two detachments, each of us as-
suming the command of a detachment. Our par-
ty was so disposed as to surround the camp, after
effecting which, we discovered that'it was broken
up, and the Indians dispersed in the direction
tor Florida. The trails were very dim and
artfully scattered for the purpose of deceiving
thtir pursurers, but having some experienced
trailers with us, we succeeded in' trailing them,
and, alter a ride of twelve miles through the pine
woods and ponds, came up with them in Irwin
county, in an open piny woods country. As soon
is we came in sight, our men were ordered to
charge, which they did promptly and gallantly,
raising, at the same time, the war-whoop. The
Indians, who were drawn up ii a.!ine, were so
Frightened that they broke a 'd tunt,. t taite
time and deliberation to br ng their rifles to
a level to bear upon us. Th'-y discharged their
pieces at us when we were within about two hun-
ired yards of them; and before th y had time
t0 reload, they were overhauled by our charge
and soon despatohed. After the battle, which
lasted about twenty minutes, we went over the
ground, and found eleven men, and, we regret to
say, seven women, dead on the field. The wo-
men so resembled the men in their dress, that
wve could not discriminate between them in the
engagement. We took three women and two
children prisoners; two of the women are badly

Vz tar.As,. a correspondent of the Journal, by
Indulging in indiscriminate abuse of the adminis-
tration and its friends, and by grossly misrepre-
venting the conduct of "the President, swems to
have caused the Journal to return, lIke a dog to
his vomit, to its peculiar vocation; bence we find
men who have stood high, and still stand, high, in
the estimation of the honorable of all parties, li-
belled in the most wanton and brutal style. In
resuming the business, for which, alone, it is now
a( emitted the editor ot the Journal is qualified, he
has recently renewed, without the slightest justi-
fication, his assaults on Major T. P. Moore-a get.-
tleman in private life-a gentleman heretofore in-
jured and insulted by the eoitor of the Journal,
.and when he called for the meeting that had been
tendered-voluntarily tendered to him-his assail-
ant took shelter behind twine strings and unwor-
thy quibbles.
But we must inquire, before we proceed to de-
fend Major Moore, who is "Veritas?" He is ceri
tainly a right hand man of Prentice's-a congenial
spirit-but, he is yet unknown here, though very
notorious elsewhere. The public have seen his
bitter anathemas-his denunciations of many of
the purest men of the age, and his distortions and
misrepresentations of men at Washington and in
the South have been read, but few can conjecture
of whom they are indebted for the augmented
voluhne of filthy and loathsome vituperation that
has passed through the columns of the Journal.
To relieve public curiosity on this point, we will
etch the character of the honorable and distinguish-
ed correspondent of the very courteous and honorable
editor of the Journal. Were we, under existing
circumstances, to withhold light, when light is so
much needed-were we to keep the gazing world
in utter darkness, as to the talented and reputable
writer referred to, we would be guilty of a sin (o.
omission) of the highest magnitude.
To the task, then. -" Veritas" is a broken down
mair. His moral turpitude first placed him below
the'conmmisseration, much less the respect, of vir-
tuous and high minded men. It hurled him, not
only from power and place, but from society, and
from the ende:arments of his family and the plea-
suiires of home. His debauches converted him
into a tainted leper-and he carries-with him, to
tqis day, the evidences of his former dissoluteness
and brutality. For years, after sinking himself to
the.-depths of infamy. he was silent-immured in
painful and loathsome obscurity. For his gross
derelictions hlie endured the torments of the
damned. Hope was not quite extinguished. He
-lingered and hoped, and hoped and lingered,
through half an age of torture-the consequence
of his infamy and his crimes. At length he found
a physician, who, from long practice, in one or
more of the hospitals of the east, was capable of
imparting fresh vigor to his mercurialized system.
The aid of the physician w.'s sought-was ob-
tained-and the honorable lump of moral putrescence,
who had not walked for years, was again placed
on his feet. The cure was effected; and the
doctor's bill disputed! In early life, he fought a
duel, and was charged with foul play in it. Subse-
quently, he was in the battle of New Orleans; that
is, long enough to hear a few rounds, to run away
-and beg a negro to conceal him. After this, he be-
- came a professed Jackson man,but turned traitor to
the party which confided in his avowed repen-
tance for former misdeeds, and his declared de-
votion to the principles of democracy. Eventu-
ally, the period approached when hlie was again to
pass the ordeal of an election to the station he
had disgraced-and, instinctively, he resorted to
traduction and subornation of perjury to carry
his point. Exposure followed; he failed-and
his intended victim now occupies the exalted seat
from which "Veritas" was cast down. This is
but an outline-yet it may serve as an introduc-
tion to the honorable and distinguished correspon-
dent of the Journal. And, is he not a choice lectu.
rer on mniorality, honesty and political rectitude ?
Is he not, after descanting on land speculations,
, until he thereby designated his successor, tired of
the subject ? What credence can he expect here,.
whilst prating of peculations and frauds, when
the testimony heretofore taken at his instance, in
relation to alleged frauds of the same nature, is
known to be false-and >ot only false, but foul ?
He should remember that his bold assaults on
others, have lately been atoned for by better blood
that his own-and that the calumniator may not
always have a generous fiend to step in between
thim and punishment, or death.
But, to return to Major Moore. The Journal,
having heretofore outraged his feelings in a man-
ner which called for a description of reparation
which could only be made by an honorable and
chintd o.is ,na,, wlich was not, of course, made--
continues t- pour its abuse upon him in unmea-
sured tei-rm>, Ii al eges that Moore (though he
returned to ,he State only a few days before the
late electioni,) is the author of a handbill signed
"JUSTICE," and which was probably printed
whilst the Major was travelling on his return to
his residence. The Journal says the writer of that
handbill "mentions the names of several indivi-
duals who served in the war, and who, it is alleged,

think unfavorably of Gen. Harrison as a military
man. Some of those whose names he gives, are
among, the most unscrupulous of the Tories otf the
present day, and would not hesitate to vilify Wash-
ington or Lafayette to gain the favor of Jackson
and'Van Buren, and many others are dead," &c.
As gross abuse of Major Moore will not be consi-
dered a satisfactory reply to a plain statement of
facts, will the degraded editor of the Journal in-
form his readers how it happened that Gen. Har-
risob complimented Major Moore in his official ac-
count of the battle of Mississiniway, founded on
the report of Colonel Campbell, the command-
er on that occasion, who placed the name
of Major Moore, then a boy of eighteen,
and a private soldier, among those who
distinguished themselves! [See Niles' Regis-
ter.] How did it happen that Major Moore's
conduct at the Thames induced Governor Shelby
to urge the (Sovernment to appoint him a Captain
in the United States army at the age of nineteen?
Governor Shelby's letters are now on file at the
Wat Department-one of them addressed to Gen.
Deshat who earnestly urged the appointment, in
consequence of an incident that occurred during
the action. How did it happen, that Major
MoOre, after his return from the battle of the
Thames, mortgaged his property to equip a com-
pany, anid marched, in the fall of 1814, in the in-
vasion of Upper Canada, under that real Gene-
ral, Duncan McArthur, and in company with the
Adjutant General, P. Dudley? How did it hap-
pen that General McArthur selected the stripling,
Moore, for. hazardous service, and complimented
hin in the warmest terms, to the exclusion of
other officers of age and experience? [See the
General order of General McArthur.] Colonel
Todd of Shelby county can furnish it, and hlie is
too honest i mani to do injustice to a fellow soldier.
When the recent call tor volunteers was made,
-tai'or Moore was anxious to march to the Sabine,
and dressedd his former commander (Colonel
Dudley,) on the subject-and here is the reply:
-. FaAiKxOjT, August 4, 1836.
DEAR, IS-Your letter of the 29th ult. came to
hand, and, in answer, I regret to inform you that
T am able to rive you arny further information in

Atai u* W urIatei U0o1n I
samuel McKee, Col. ikshtrd -avenport, Generi'i
JeiningS, Judg* Thoitmas .ontgomery, and Col.
Samuel Caldwell-and McKee and Montgomery
wers an honor to Kenttucky. They were mem.
ben of Congress-both voted for the war and
against an emrbargo--both were bitterly denounced
by Mr. Clay's organ, the Kentucky Reporter-
but, when the time to Iry men's souls arrived,
both buckled on their knapsacks, shouldered their
muskets,/and j ined the northwestern army as si
mmths' private soldiers. We refer to the Hon. R
P. Letcher, the Hon. George Robertson-in a
word, to all the old inhabitants of Garrard county,
to prove the opinions of Colonel McKee and Gen.
Jennings-to every respectable man in Lincoln
to prove that of Judge Montgomery-and to the
son of Colonel Samuel Caldwell, (Doctor Cald-
well,) now a resident of Washington county, to
prove the opinion of his iteather. All the old in-
habitants of Danville have heard Col. Davenport
utter the opinions ascribed to him-but, to remove
all doubts, we refer to a venerable and respecta-
ble gentleman, Mr. James Birney, who was the
intimate friend of Colonel Davenport.
All the men we have named did believe that
General Harrison was inefficient and incompetent
to lead an army; and We take the liberty to add,
that no man who acquired distinction in the late
war can now review his conduct without arriving
at the same conclusion.
The man who is niow styled the Hero of Tippe-
canoe, marched to the northwest--placed the gal-
lant regiments of Lewis, Alien, Jennings, rogue,
and BIarbee, in winter quarters--returned to the
interior and lived on the fat of the land, whilst the
best men of Kentucky were perishing for want of
food and clothing, and were finally butchered at
the river Raisin! And this is the gentleman who
is now to be converted into a hero, a chieftain, a
statesman-and for what? Truly, because he was
FORCED to pursue Proctor to the Thames, where
Colonel Johnson and his regiment achieved a de-
cisive and glorious victory.
But mark the degeneracy of the whig leaders.
They are about to celebrate the victory of the
Thames as an occurrence for which the nation
should reward General Harrison! They would
rob a Kentuckian of the laurels he really won-
divest the State of the glory she acquired in that
action-and for what? To prepare her citizens
to vote for the imbecile candidate of a neighboring

-"it was by members of that party [whig] that
every abolition memorial (with the exception of
some tour or five) was presented, and anti-slavery
speeches delivered, during the late session of Con-
gress. I have documents in my possession which
prove this beyond the power of contradiction: and
though that party has assumed the general appel-
lative of whigs, it is undeniable that they not only
do not concur with the State Rights party of the
South in any of the peculiar political tenets by
which the latter is distinguished, but that they are
thoroughly opposed (upon every thing relating
to protective tariffs, internal improvements, distribu
tion of the revenue, and the institution of domestic
servitude,) to all those principles which State Rights
men have always considered as the only true con-
struction of the kederalconstilution, and to all those
measures which,according to the State Rights creed,
are equally and vitally important to the political
existence of the South, and to the peace and perpe-
tuity of the Union itself. Upon this point, how-
ever, I shall say no more, unless compelled to do
so in my own defence."

Concessions of the Nashville Banner.-From cer-
tain indications, it is pretty plain, that some pa-
pers devoted to the cause of Judge White are try-
ing to drop him as decently as they can. They
have been convinced, for a long time past, of the
utter hopelessness of the Judge's ever filling the
Presidential Chair; and while some are for hang-
ing on to the Judge, even if he should go to the
bottom, many are for going over to the ranks of
Harrison. In Virginia White is about to be drop-
ped for Harrison, whose popularity is on the in-
crease in the ratio of the Judge's decrease. Even
the Nashville Banner appears to be flagging a lit-
tle, as will be seen by the following quotation from
that paper:
"The New York Courier and Enquirer has de-
clared for Wsa. H. HARRISON fbr the Presidency;
FRAHcIs GRaNGER for the Vice Presidency.
We did hope to have the aic-of the Courier for
WHTEi, and as 'divided we fall,' we hope it yet.
But save the country from misrule, no matter who
rules it."
- The New York Courier and Enquirer alluded
to, for services rendered, received once something
considerable from Nicholas Biddle; and no doubt,
Judge White might expect valuable aid from one
in whom Mr. Biddle could place so much confi-
dence. But to our comments upon tke 1utrtoi.
We see by it the true spirit and genius of modern
whigism. "No matter who rules the country,"
only so so it is a Whig. Only so he is a Whig, it
don't make a farthing's difference whether he be
a nullifier, abolitionist, or any thing else. No mat-

ter who rules the country, only so it is ruled. This
is true modern whig doctrine-the doctine of the
bank party and the aristocracy of the land. They
have manifested a disposition to defeat the elec-
tion of Martin Van Buren, by means fair or foul.
But it does matter to honest republicans who it is
that shall rule the country-they wish to see
the people rule it. The issue now appears to be
whether the country shall be ruled by the people,
as heretofore, or Whether by a. man foisted upon
the people, by the management of a few dema-
We do not pretend to be a prophet, and shliall
not, therefore, prophecy; but we expect to see
the Harrison flag hoisted, where now the White
flag floats. No doubt but that the chivalrous he-
ro of 'Tippecanoe, and his gallant squire Granger,
will hold on their way, and bring many of their
whig friends to submit at discretion to their prow.
ess and gallantry. There is certainly a verq friend-
ly feeling beginning to prevail, and openly mani-
fests itself towards these men, who arc recognized
by the abolitionists, as abolitionists. The paper
which we have alluded to before, (the Nashville
Banner,) speaking of Granger, says: "IHe en-
ters the lists of political warfaree with the spi-
rit and bearing of a true knight-courtesy, dig-
nity, and a refined moral taste." From this we
may see the hollow-heartedness of those, who,
while they bolster up the Judge as the champion
of the South, are opposing Van Buren on the
ground of his being a northern man, and as there-
fore unworthy of southern support They speak
of Van Buren as an abolitionist; assert-though it
is only assertion-that he is an abolitionist, and yet
they have an eulogium for Harrison and Granger
abolitionists. Let it be remembered by whom
Granger was called a truite knight. The reason
why was simply because he had been true to the
common cause. No man contributed more im-
portant service in stirring up the filth of abolition-
ism in Congress than did this true knight. This
gentleman and his adjuncts have handed in one hun-

IRDIANs iN LOWNDES.-A most respectable and
intelligent citizen of Lowndes has just visited
Milledgeville, in order to communicate to the Ex-
ecutive full information of the unhappy condition
of his fellow-citizens. For the last two months
there have been parties of Creek Indians almost
constantly in that county. Lowndes lies on the
route travelled by the Creeks in escaping from the
Alabama Creek country to Florida; and it abounds
in wide, deep, and dense swamps, forming a con-
tinuous covert and secret way bfor the passage of
the Indians. Parties of savages, or their recent
traces, are so frequently seen, that the county is i
kept is a state of continual alarm. No family can
feel safe at night, under a belief that there may be
a party of hostile and cruel savages lying hid
within a few miles of them Maiy plantations
have been plundered of every article that could
be carried away by Indians. The people of
Lowndes have acted with extraordinary alacrity
and spirit. On the discovery of Indians, or their
fresh signs, parties of citizens immediately assem-
ble and pursue them. Whenever they have over-
taken ihe Indians, they have attacked them suc-
cessfully; but most frequently the savages elude
their pursurers in the swamps. The entire mili-
tary population of Lowndes is about three hun
dred; of m hom one-third have been in constant
service lor a month past. These parties of In-
dians have killed none of the whites, except in
battle; but the squaws who have been taken in
one of thile engagements say, that when the women
and children shall have been conveyed to Florida,
the warriors, aided by the Seminoles, will return,
and carry on a different kind of war. It is be.
lived that they are now collecting provisions in a
very deep swamp lying on the border of Lowndes
and Ware; and that they intend to make a per-
manent lodgme't in this tangled, boggy, and al-
most impenetrable wilderness.
We dsubt not that the Government will do all
that is proper for the relief of this afflicted coun-
try; and that vigorous measures will immediately
be adopted for the expulsion of the Indians, and
the future security of our people.

It is stated that the services of tlhe Tennessee
brigade have been rejected by Governor Call, in
consequence of their having prescribed sume
condition in relation to the officers by whom they
were to be commanded, which he deemed incom-
patible with established military regulations. The
project of a summer campaign seems to have
been abandoned. The Floridians themselves
were extremely averse to engaging in it; and in
general they evaded the draft that had been or-
dered for the purpose of raising men for this ex-
pedition. _______
THE PoLEs-IC e have already announced that a
decree has been promulgated by the Russian Go-
vernment at Warsaw, subjecting all medals, prints,
drawings,S and objects of art, to censorship. The
Swabian Mercury contains a letter from the fron-
tiers of Poland, in which the cause of this decree
is expla ned. It appears that since the regula-
tions of the Governmenit have become so severe
that no secret correspondence can be carried on
between any of the Polish refugees and their friends
in the country, a method has been devised of
forming a kind of symbolical correspondence
Many houses in the engraving line, and dealers in
hardware, had received, almost simultaneously,
from Paris, considerable quantities of works in
bronze and marble sculpture, executed with much
taste and at a. moderate price. The police, how-
ever, found out the mystery, and the decree above
alluded to was issued in consequence.-Galigna-
ivi's Messenger.

JAMrBs SHERIDAN KxowLEs.-Being aware of
the desire of the numerous friends of tlis dis-
tinguished dramatist-(than whom no professional
person that has visited this country has, or de-
serves, more sincere ones)-to hear at all times,
respecting his welfare and circumstances, we avail
ourselves of the advantages of some private let-
ters to the editors of this paper, to say that he has
been very unsettled since his return to England,
owineg chii-fly ti.... nfA. h..-v-g- entered into an
arrangement with either of the patent theatres;
nor have his provincial speculations turned out as
well as he had a right to expect. It is strange-
and yet experience shows us that it is common-
that a man acknowledged among his cotempora-
ries to stand at the head of a noble branch of lite-

rature, and whose productions have made the
hearts of thousands vibrate wherever the English
language is spoken; it is strange, we repeat, that
such a man should pass along almost as unnoticed
and unsupported by his countrymen, as if he were
the merest tyro ii his art! In the letter before,
us, Knowles says, 1 am almost determined to re-
turn to my old trade of teaching elocution in honest,
warm-hearted Glasgow"-where he has ever
found a glorious exception to the complaint which
we have made above. He goes on further to say,
"I have not written a line in the way of compo-
sition, barring the commencement of a new drama.
Of the invitations of my many American corres.
pondents, most kind, to come and see you all
again, 1 would most gladly avail myself if I could;
but 1 fear a visit to America-and 1 say it with a
heart-pang-is very distant. That 1 shall see that
dear country of national dignity once again, at
least, before I bid good by for the great country
of all, is my most sincere wish and present inten-
tion; but, imperious circumstances, I apprehend,
will render its realization remote." In conclud-
ing his letter, Mr. Knowles alludes to a publication
made in this country respecting his private deport-
ment while in Philadelphia, and of which he says
all his correspondents recommend him to take no
notice. "As my friends are satisfied, I am satis-
fied, because I know they are quite as jealous of
my character as I myself am-and, perhaps, more
so; for where I am satisfied with ficts, I am, per-
haps, too little studious of appearances." He
expresses, in impassioned language, his feelings
toward Americans, for the kindness, cordiality and
courtesy he experienced at their hands, and men-
tions the benefit given to him at the Park Theatre
in a glowing strain of heart-felt gratitude. Poor
Knowles! there is not a man breathing more
worthy respect as an author, and affection as a
man!-New York Mirror.

Mr. Irving has in press a new work, with the
title of "ASTORIA, or Anecdotes of an Enterprise t
beyond the Rocky Mountains." It appears to be
a narrative of the events of some commercial un-
dertaking, collected by the author from the con /
versation and papers of the persons who were er-
gaged in it. The National Gazette furnishes the I
following extract from the work: t
"In the course of occasional visits to Canada, <
many years since, I became intimately acquainted t
with some of the principal partners of the great 1
Northwest Fur Company, who, at that tme, lived
in genial style at Montreal, and kept almost open s
house for thestranger. At their hospitable boards,
I occasionally met with partners, and clerks, and
hardy fur traders from the intei ion posts; men who
had passed years remote from civilized society, 1
among distant and savage tribes, and who had
wonders to recount of their wide and wild pere-
grinations, their hunting exploits, and their peril
ous adventures aind hair-breadth escapes among
thie Indians. I was at an age when the imagina-
tion lends its coloring to every thing, and the
stories of these Sinbads of the wilderness made the i
life of a trapper and fur-trader perfect romance i
to me. I even meditated at one time a visit to t
the remote posts of the company in the boats
which annually ascended the lakes and rivers, be-
ing thereto invited ly one of the partners; and I t
have ever since regretted that I was prevented by t
circumstances from carrying my intention into
effect." *
"About two yeats ago, not long after my re-
turn from a tour upoh the prairies of the fir West,
1 had a conversation with my friend, Mr. John
Jacob Astor, relative to that portion of outr coun-
try, and to the adventurous traders to Santa F6
and the Columbia. This led him to advert to a I
great enterprise set on foot and conducted by t
him, between twenty and thirty years since, hav-
inmg for its object to carry the fur trade across the
Rocky Mountains, and to sweep the shores of the
Pacific. i
"Finding that I took an interest in the subject,
he expressed a regret that the true nature and ex-
tent of his enterprise, and its national character
and importance, had never been understood, and a
wish that I would undertake to give an account of
it. The suggestion struck upon the chord of
early associations already vibrating in my mind
It occurred to me that a work of this kind might
comprise a variety of those details, so interesting
to me, illustrative of the fur trade, of its remote
and adventurous enterprises, and of the various
people, and tribes, and castes, and characters,
civilized and savage, affected by its operations.
The journal's, and letters also, of the adventurers,
by sea and land, employed, by Mr. Astor, in
his comprehensive project, miht" thrw i;&it upon
tironons or our country q lite out of the track of
ordinary travel, and as yet but little known. I
therefore felt disposed to undertake the task,
provided documents of sufficient extent and mi
nutteness could be furnished to me." *
"Time work I here present to the public is ne-
cessarily of a rambling and somewhat disjointed
nature, comprising various expeditions and adven-
tures by land and sea. The facts, however, will

prove to be linked and banded together by one
grand scheme, devised and conducted by a master
spirit; one set of characters, also, continues
throughout, appearing occasionally, though some-
times at long intervals, and the whole enterprise
winds up by a regular catastrophe; so that the
work, without any labored attempt at artificial
construction,actually possesses much of that unity
so much sought after in works of fiction, and con-
sidered so important to the interest of every his-
fromn thi Salem Gazette.
The last arrivals from Europe bring intelligence
of the death of JOHN a CHEVERUS, formerly Roman
Catholic Bishop of Boston, and at the time of his
decease a Cardinal cf the Romish Church. M.
Cheverus was born at Mayence, in the province of
the same name, on the 28th of January, 1768. His
family were highly respectable. At an early age
he entered into the ecclesiastical state, and in two
or three years afterwards, when thiteen or four-
teen years of age, ws preferred to a benefice by
Louis XVIII., then Monsieur.
M. Chlieverus was odained December 18th,1790,
at the last public ordination in Paris, before the
revolution. Soon after entering into priest's or-
ders he was appointOd pastor of the church in his
native parish, and ficear-general of the Diocass.
These early distinctions gave him a celebrity nriot
acquired by many, venerable for their age and
virtues, among the ecclesiastics at that time. He
had. not long resided at Mayence, when the perse-
cutions of the clergy commenced, and M. Uliheve-
rus repaired to Pans, where hlie was concealed on
the second and third of September, the memora-
ble days of the massacre of the clergy. In a few
days after this bloody scene hlie left Paris, disguis-
ed in a military dress, and succeeded in escaping to
Englnd. On his arrival at Dover lie could not
speak a word of English, but in January, 1793,
he took up his residence in the house of a protes-
tant clergyman, who, in addition to his pastored
duties, had five or six young menwith him, prepar-
ing, for the university. M. Cheverus was employ-

uttntry, a Minister frornm the Court ofPranee, the -
tate of the B ihop's health wat represented to
[ouis 18th, and his talents being well known, he ]
wa; nominated by an ordinance, dated January 13,
823, to the Bishopric of Montauban. He left In
loston in September, 1823, (or New York, C
'hence he emb irked for Havre on board the Pa. o
is, and on the 21st of October suffered shipwreck tl
i % violent tempest on the coast of France. Thus, s8
after an absence of mortthan thirty years, he was I
thrown upon his native shores, where the highest a
honors awaited him. He was soon raised to the tl
dignity of Archbishop of Bordeaux, and a few J
nontlis since was appointed a Cardinal. It is not b
improbable that he would have been called to fill tl
he pontifical chair, if he had survived the present e
incumbent. d
Sir George Head, in his tour through the Munu.
acturing Districts, gives the following account of W
new trade carried on at Dewsbury; literally tear-
ng in pieces fusty old rags, collected from Scot-
and, Ireland, and the Continent, by a machine
called a "devil," till a substance very like the ori-
ginal wool is produced. This, by the help of a small 7
addition of new wool, is respun and manufactured
nto sundry useful coarse articles, such as the wad-
ling which Messrs. Stulze and Co. introduce with- t
n the collars of their fashionable coats, and varin- a
us descriptions of drugget, horse-sheeting, &c.
The trade or occupation of the owner, his life and
habits, or the filthiness and antiquity of the gar.
ment itself, oppose no bar to this wonderful pro-
gress of regeneration; whether from the scarecrow f
or the gibbet, it makes no difference; so that, ac-
cording to the transmutation of human affairs, it
no doubt frequently does happen, without fi,,ure
if speech or metaphor, that the identical garment
to day exposed to the sun and rain in a Kentish
elitrr)-orchard, or saturated with tobacco smoke
on the "back of a beggar in a pothouse," is doom-
cd in its turn, "perfusus liquidis odoribus," to
grace the swelling collar, or add dignified pro-
portion to the chest of the dandy.-[London paper.

We have been politely furnished by Gen. ELUsTIS
with the following letter for publication, contain
ng an account of the recent battle with the Indians
n Florida, of which we gave the particulars yes-
ST. AUGusT NE, (E. F.) Aug. 24.
"'SIR: Our troops have had another battle with
the Indians, and I have the satisfaction to state,
that they conducted themselves on this occasion
with their accustomed intrepidity and energy. It
seems that Major Pierce, commanding at Micano-
py, suspected that there were Indians luring t
about Camp Drane, he therefore determined to
undertake an expedition against them. For this
purpose hlie marched at 2 o'clock on the morning
of the 21st, with 110 mounted men and a field
piece, fifty men commanded by Captain Childs of
Lhe 3d Artillery, and Lieutenant Spaulding of the
Dragoons-fifty men by Lieutenants Irwin and
Herbert of the 1st Artillery. He arrived at Fort
Drane about sunrise-attacked the Indians, who r
proved to be numerous, say 300 Miccasucky Indi-
a)s, haded by Powell. Lieutenants Irwin and
Herb rt on the right, Captain Childs and Lieuten-
ant Spauldidg on the left, the Artillery in the cen-
tre, comm.'neted by Lieutenant Pickell. Surgeons
Tripler-and Berry accompanied the expedition.
All attacked them with great vigor and spirit. It
is evident that Powell was either taken by surprise
or outgeneral ed, as he lost five men before a rifle-
was fired on his side. The Indians were driven
into a dense and extensive hammock, three quar-
ters of a mile, and the troops in a hurried passage
over the field counted ten dead.
"Tilis was a well contested engagement, the
Indians fighting with the most determined bravery
for upwards of an hour. The recesses into which
the Indians retired could not be penetrated by
Major Pierce's exhausted and inferior force. He
therefore marched his detachment back to Mica-
nopy, leaving no killed or wounded on the field.
Our loss in killed and wounded is as follows:
Killed, 1-Sykes of 'G' company, 1st Aitil-
Wounded, 1 6-oF whom Lieut. Betts (Adjutant)
is one, being slightly wounded in the thigh.
i he offic>.rs and men all justified the most

sanguine expectations entertained of them, and
merit the highest praise- for their gallantry and
"Jackson, a wagon master, well acquainted
with tihe localities of Fort Drane, volunteered his
services as a guide on the march, and, as a sol-
dier in the engagement, behaved with distinguish-
ed bravery, was twice severely wounded, and lust
a valuable horse. It is hoped he wilt be liberally
rewarded, as he deserves to be.
"I ought to observe that none of the wounds
are considered dangerous.
The Indians, it appears, had erected a village
at Fort Drane, and werteliving with their families.
"I have collected the foregoing facts from the
official reports, and if they appear worthy being
made known to the public, I have no objection to
their insertion in one of the journals.

of the high Court of Chancery of the State of Ma-

bidder, on Monday, the 10th day of October next,

This land abounds in wood and timber, having a
great excess above a supply for the demands of the

is well watered, and remarkably healthy. A con-
siderable timothy meadow can be made on it, at a
small expense. The soil, originally fertile, has
suffered from bad and excessive cultivation; but
its aptitude to the growth of red clover, and hap-

and facilitate its restoration to fe i utility in a short
time, and at little expense. "I-s

We give below the returns for Baltimore of the
vote of that city, in the State election held
throughout Maryland on Monday last. The re-
sult, when received from all the counties, and the
-popular vote in all, summed up together, will fur-
nish a criterion which may be considered almost
decisive of the vote on the Presidency. The
parties are everywhere arrayed upon the county
candidates. There is not, as far as we have heard,
a split ticket in the State.
It mnay however happen that the federal party
obtain a majority of members of the House, and
electors for Senators, and still be in the minority of
ithe popular vote, which decides the Presidential
'eledti6n. The small counties have as many re.
presentatives as the large -ones, and double as
many as Baltimore, which polls nearly ten thou-
sand .votes. But as the law is altered in regard to
the Presidential election, and the general ticket
prevails, every vote in Baltimore and the other
republican strong hplds will count. The vote be-
low is ani auspicious sign.
From the Baltimore Republican.
We lay before our readers the result of the elec-
tion held in this city yesterday for elector of Senate
for the city, from which it will be seen that we
have achieved a most glorious victory. Our oppo-
nents may now see the result of their slanders upon
Van Bureii and Johnson, our candidates for the
Presidency and Vice Presidency, and their con-
duct in the management of our State affairs.
Never before, since Jackson was elected to the
Presidency, has our majority amounted to 800.
Now it is above 1,600.-

SpRIGo HARwooD, (Van Buren,) 162
NICHOLAS BnEWER, (Whig,) - 143

P. S.-Returns received late yesterday from pri-
vate sources, to be relied on.

The National Intelligencer gives the following
piece of news from Alton, Illinois:
"A Harrison meeting took place at Alton last
week. The present White electors were nomi.
nated to be supported by the friends of Gen. Har-
rison in that State; and a committee was appoint-
ed to correspond with the gentlemen who com-
pose the White electoral ticket, on the subject.
An excellent move!"
Since the late election in Illinois, at which all
the White candidates for Congress were doubly
distanced, this "excellent move," announced by the
Intelligence, has been hastily consummated.
Our Damon and Pythias, WHITZ and HARRISON,
are such close friends, that they use the electoral
ticket of each other as they would a common hob-
by, on which they had engaged to pursue a jour-
ney together. Judge White, it seems, has had
his-turn in Illinois; so he dismounts and ties, and
pursues his way afoot in other States. Harrison,
in the meantime, comes up, takes his place in the
saddle, and follows after. When Harrison over-
takes his companion in Tennessee, it is probable
the Judge will not require him to dismount, but
make the State carry double, like Virginia. This,
being hopeless, he will do out of complaisance
in the South, though the rule is the reverse at the
North, as this item, which we take from a west-
ern paper, indicates:
"The Columbia Patriot has, since the election,
hauled down its motto, 'Go ahead.' We would
suggest 'Go behind,' as a good substitute, to grace
the White electoral ticket of this State."

If any thing were wanting to show the perfect
identification of White and his party as the old op.
position to the President, it would be found in the
i following passage, from the address of White's
Central -Committee at Richmond, (Virginia.) It
will be observed, that the Committee consider
-White so absolutely at enmity with General Jack-
son, s to be willing that his election should turn
upon the condemnation of thosevery acts in which,
as a leading friend of the President, lie fully par-
ticipated. 1st, Judge White signalized himself as
asupporter and adviser of the President in his

her by what ev ett and 6t yet apla6d& artd,, ati.
Anosity against the second officer in the Govern.-
ment was kindled in the mind of the President,
and fanned until it broke forth into a blaze
by which his own honor was scotched and
blackened. During all this time, Mr Van Bu.
ren stood behind the President, daily rising in
his favor. You may conjecture by what arts
he flourished, while all whose crime it was
to be obnoxious to him, fell. You may deem
it not uncharitable to imagine that he was
not wholly unconcerned in fabricating the plots
and in stimulating the resentments which never
failed to take the direction most favorable to
his interests. It seems to have occurred to
his own mind, (the only mind conscious of
his motives) witnessing the route and over-
throw of all who stood in his way, that he might
at last be suspected of having helped to raise the
storms which brought him such advantages, and
before the public opinion had time to darken over
him, he retired from your eyes and your suspi-
cions, to the English court.
He was not permitted to remain there. The
representatives of the States in Congress, with a
noble self-devotion which posterity will requite if
this generation shall not, refused their consent to
his appointment as a Minister to a Court, before
which, as Secretary of State, he had disgraced
himself, and degraded his country, by exposing
our domestic divisions, disavowing former acts of
our Government, seeking to conciliate the favor
of a foreign Prince to his party, tbfor its party ends,
and exhibiting the novel and humiliating specta-
cle of an American Statesman begging as an act
of grace to his party what was either due to his
country and should so have been demanded, or
what was not due at all, and he should therefore
have scorned to ask even in his country's name."

We are indebted to a friend from Tennessee
for the correction of a mistake in yesterday's
Globe. The Col. John Bell," alluded to by
Major Moore in his letter, as the person from
whom lie purchased Indian lands for the Boston
company, is not Col. John Bell of the House of
Representatives, as we supposed. We had no
doubt that the Ex-Speaker was meant by Major
Moore, because we knew that he had been a pur-
chaser, in conjunction with a brother-in-law, of
Misssissippi lands; and it was generally understood
at Washington that he was a purchaser of negroes
in this quarter, to give value to his land acquisi-
tions below, aboat the time of his heavy commit.
ments to the Bank of the United States. Besides
this, another of his brothers-in-law, Mr. Erwing,
(the son-in-law of Mr. Clay,) is notoriously a spe.
culator in lands, on a scale of such magnitude as
would be sufficient to embrace the capital of the
wh:le family. These circumstances left no doubt
that the "Col. John Bell," to whom M'.jor Moore
refers as the person from whom he bought the
lands for the Boston company, was Col. John
Bell of the House of Representatives. We made
a mistake on this point.

The article from the Louisville Advertiser suffi.
ciently explains the excessive turpitude which has
recently distinguished the columns of the Louis-
ville Journal. Mr. Prentiss, of the Journal, has
lately been blessed with an adjunct, who is really
a master of the science of the blackguard, as well
as the black leg. The individual need not be
named. The picture drawn of him by the Adver-
tiser will make him known everywhere, just as
well as if his monstrous face were presented to
the public.

"As far back as 1830, it was distinctly foreseen
that under the then existing tariff" there would
soon be an accumulation of money in the Treasu-
ry, far beyond the ordinary wants or legitimate
expenditures of Government. The national debt
was then nearly extinguished, and in a year or
two more it would be finally gone. This state of
things, with all its anticipated consequences, was
repeatedly brought to the view of Congress by
the President, who recommended that, if the
tariff could not be so adjusted as to bring down
the income of the Government to the revenue
standard, the surplus should be divided among the
States, and that, for that purpose, application
should be made to theo Btateo for thx= r-quasite aU- -
thority. Every one must remember the general
and unqualified denunciation with which this pro-
ject was received by the State Rights Party. It
was adverted to by Mr. Calhoun, in his speech
upon the Force bill, in which he said: 'Under
existing duties, a large annual surplus of many
millions must come into the Treasury. It is im-
possible to look at this state of things, without
seeing the most mischievous consequences; and
among others, if not corrected, it would inter.

pose powerful, and almost insuperable obstacles,
to throwing off the burden under which the South
has been so long laboring.' Seeing, then, that
the occurrence of a surplus was not only fore-
seen, but frequently discussed-in both branches of
Congress, it might be a matter of curiosity to in-
quire why the party that had the final arrange-
ment of the tariff, did not so adjust it as to avoid
this evil. But it is not my province to solve this
problem."-Mr. Pinckney's Address.
Messrs. Calhoun and Clay have solved the
problem. They have united again in support of
the American System, which they originated as
an electioneering hobby, and afterwards quarrel-
led about; Clay getting in the saddle. On coming
together again, these worthies provided by their
compromise, a tariff yielding an immense surplus,
by distributing which among the States, they
hoped they might resume their scheme of pur-
chasing influence by feeding the States out of the
federal Treasury. Calhoun has, in a late letter to
the Athens Committee, turned the eyes of Georgia
and the whole South to its share of the surplus,
as a fund for making a railroad from Cincinnati.
Is not this in effect maintaining the tariff, and re-
newing the internal improvement system?

The following observations upon the plan for a
new bank in the District, published in the Globe
some weeks since, are taken from the Alexandria
They serve to show, that the subject is attract-
ing the attention of those interested. There can-
not be a doubt but nine.tenths of the population
of the whole District will be in favor of the new
bank, founded upon the principles proposed:
_61Yo will r>bl>Hcr a subscriber oind r P>,I- a--

Agent gCeftll-y; d, that the dJSbtite. ng iceres
Sat Washington would also make it their place of
deposit, and disburse its notes in their pay
Scents. The sum of deposites of the latter clas,
may certainly be put down at from one half to
Sone million of dollars The use by the Govei nmi rnt
of such a bank as a fiscal agent, in the transmis-
sion of funds from one quart-r of the Union to
another, would furnish it with means of doing an
extensive business in internal exchanges, a'd
w ,uld give a credit to its notes to an extent far
beyond the credit of the combined capital of all
the present local banks. This business would also
place within the means of this bank a constant
and ready supply of northern funds to meet the
return of its circulation, a great desideratum, and
which is now a source of great inconvenience,
and often of great oppression to the present
local banks. What the general deposit of the
Government might be I have no means of ascer-
taining, but it would certainly be equal to, if not
double the amount, of the deposit of officers, as
alluded to above; say one million of dollars.
These two sources of deposit, without reference
to individual depositors, would furnish tle bank
with means equal to its whole capital by charters,
and I have understood that the Branch Bank could
always find business fully commensurate with
the means at its disposal. Tue business of the
District Bank might therefore be fairly set down
at equal to the whole means at its disposal, in-
cluding capital and deposits. I feel assured, too,
that with a bank in our town, of large capital,
with credit for its notes to insure circulation and
means to meet that circulation when it returns,
without apprehension of a sudden call upon its
customers, the banking business of the town
might be doubled. We have now some seven or
eight ships of the first class,owned by a few wealthy
individuals, who, besides their individual wealth,
as directors of the present banks, can command
the resources of'these banks, to meet any exi-
gency ; and 1 have no doubt, indeed 1 know ,n-
dividuals, who, could they oe assured of the
steady use of borrowed capital to the extent
their means and citedit ought to entitle them to,
would willingly join and build other ships and
employ them. Again, 1 am exceedingly gratified
to find the public mind il oLI. town awakening to
the importance of a vigorous effort to establish
manufactories, for which our town is so well adapt-
ed. As one, I would most cheerfully join in push-
ing forward manufactures, could I obtain a credit
upon which I could rely for an investment, sepa-
rate from the credit necessary to the business I
am now pursuing. This credit the branch for our
town could readily afford from the capital assigned
to it-with the reserve it would have in the abun-
dant resources of the mother bank in Washington,
in its deposits, or a share of the deposits from the
government direct into our branch. That we
might reasonably expect a share of the public
deposites in our branch is quite certain. I
believe there is, on the part of the Executive, and
on the part of Congress, a disposition to assist the
District, and our portion of it: indeed, it has been
evinced by the relief granted last session; and I
have no doubt that an indirect or incidental ad-
vantage, such as a share of the deposites, would
be conferred with alacrity.
"With these meatis at our disposal, with a cer-
tainty now that our great work, the Chesapeake
and Oihio canal, has within its control the means
of completion to the coal mines of the Alleghany,
the District would offer to the enterprising of the
northern States, inducements to settle among us
as manufacturers and traders, and we should then
be able to say to them, 'bring your enterprise and
skill among us, and we will furnish employment
for them. We are here under the eye of the Gene-
ral Government-members of Congress from all
quarters of the Union will be able to see and ap-
preciate the efforts of your skill and ingenuity.' I
hope the day will yet dawn when the ten miles
square will be, what it was intended to be by its
founders, the great centre and focus, the heart of
the republic-tt4e pride of sixteen millions of free-
men. I have thus, Mr. Editor, thrown may ideas
before you. 1 am aware they are crude; but if
they shall produce reflection among my fellow-
citizens, or induce some other hand to discuss this
interesting subject, and exhibit what I believe are
the advantages to be expected from it, more in de-
tail, I shall be well content with the effect of my
humble effort. A NATIVE."

honchatanee ari th part of the aent, that we
could not realize that the danger (and some. there
evidently was, though we could not iifigine
what,) was serious, jeoparding our lim'-s and
lives. We should otherwise have left the car.
Two minutes' delay would have saved us, for
the trains came in contact withi, half a mile
of this point, about o ie minute's rn of the engine.
I am fortunately uninjured, except a slight bruise
from the fall; but is it nothing to be exposed, by
th: cupidity of railroad owners, to the probability
of death, broken limbs, at any moment? Iminedi-
ately on starting, one of the party in our apart-
ment (the first one) was deputed to look out for
the counter train. On ac 6unt of the abrupt
curve, nothing was to be seen; but in a few se-
conds, looking again, he cried'out, "it is corning!"
but made no movement to escape.. I thrust my
head out of the window, and you may imagine
my sensations on seeing, within a few rods, this
huge machine, dragon like, spouting fire, bearing
down upon us with frightful rapidity! Both driver
and horses, being indisposed to run so unequal a
tilt, hadl quite reduced bur speed, so that I was
able to jump out and run up on the side bank in
time to see the concussion. My great wonder now
is, that I could have accomplished it. The
body of the baggage car, which I was not
before aware was in the advance of us, was
crushed instantly, like an egg-shell, and the pas-
senger-car a good deal broken, while the passengers
who remained in, wtre thrown violently together
and bruised. Mr. M. S. Lincoln, of Boston, had
his leg broken in leaping out, The driver, leap-
ing also, is much bruised. One gentleman had
his nose completely broken, while many com-
plained of bruises, to some. of which blood bore
witness. ,I ask, is there any remedy? Will the
Legislature protect our lives? If not, I am half
disposed to coincide with a southern gentleman
hero, who proposes Lynch law. Thus, in all fu-
ture cases, the sufferers to resolve themselves into
a court, to pass judgment, and execute it too, in-
stanter', first on the culpable agent; if hle cannot
be seized, then on one or more of the directors;
and for want of said officials, upon the first share-
holder within reach. Let some one represent the
responsibility, and take the punishment for the
public goow.l. This may seem absurd, but why
not make free with their lives, as they do with
ours ?
Is there no preventive? or, is this new mode of
death merely to be added to the catalogue of "ills

SIR: I send enclosed some propositions for
wagers on the approaching Presidential elec-'
tion, which you will please to have published int
the Globe as an advertisement; three times a week
until the 1st of November. Should any person
call to take up any of the wagers, please send for
me. Respectfully, J. M.

I perceive that the editors of the federal papers
are now making tables, based upon their lies
about the recent elections, to show the probability
of their defeating Mr. VAx BUREN for the Presi-
dency. O0e editor gives Mr. VAN BUrtEN 17
electoral votes out of 294; another gives him 22.
But Duff Green, thinking (I suppose) these "ta-
bles" too barefaced, published in the Telegraph
of yesterday a table prepared by himself, on in.
troducing which, he says: "In presenting the fol-
lowing estimate, we do it with the utmst confi-
dence that the result given will be realized. It is
formed upon a thorough and impartial examination
of the state of parties at the present.time." This
table gives HARRISON 100, WHITE 93, VArs BUREN
74, and WEBSTER 14, electoral votes, and puts
down the remainder, 13, as doubtful.
Now I propose to prove conclusively that
nobody believes these editors; and, further, that
they do not believe themselves. I will eo it with one
of their own argumnents-a wager; and the best
one they use, too, for they are oiten sincere when
they offer it.
They have claimed all the States where- the
elections have recently taken place; -they have
claimed every section of the Union; and they have'
claimed a majority of the United States, for their
1 now offer them the following wagers, some of
which they must accept, if they believe any part of
of what they have said.
1st. I will bet $100 on each of the eight south-
ern and western States, where elections have re-
cently taken place, namely, Kentucky, Indiana,
Illinois, Missouri, North Carolina, Alabama, Lou-
isiana, and Arkansas, that VAN Bu#EN. receives
the electoral vote of the State. -
2d. I will bet $250 that IlAIUnsoN, WITE, and
WEBSTER, will not get more electoral votes in the-
New England States than Mr. VAN BUREN: $250
that they will not get more in the middle States,
namely, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania,
Delaware, and Maryland, than Mr. VAN BuEaX:'
$250 that they will not get more in the western
States, namely, Kentucky, Ohio, Michigan, In-
diana, Ilinois, and Missouri, than Mr. VAN BUREIN:
and $250 that they will not get more in the south-
ern States, including all the States of the Union
that have not been named herein, than Mr. VAN
3d. I will bet $1,000 that Mr. VAt BuRnENr will
be elected President of the United States at the
ensuing election: $250 that he gets double as
many electoral votes as HARRISON: $250 that lie
gets three times as many as WHITE: $250 thattle
gets four times as many as WEBSTER: and $250 that
he gets twenty-five electoral votes more than all
three of them.
The money to be deposited in the Bank of
the Metropolis in this City..
Those who are prepared to take any of the
above wagers, will please inquire at this office for
the advertiser. Sept 5-3tawtNl

"oin the head waters of the St. Francis to the
Merimac river, a distance of about seventy miles
in length, and from the Mississippi in a south-
westerly direction, a distance of about fifty miles
in breadth, and abounds with minerals of various
descriptions, but is particularly characterized by
the abundance and richness of its lead or : iron,
manganese, zinc, antimony, arsenic, plumbago,
and other minerals of minor importance, are also
to be found in this district.
The townships above designated embrace a
portion of this district, and include some of the

most productive mines in the State, yielding from
two to three millions of pounds of mineral annual-
ly; and, among others, the rich ones of mine Ish-
mael, Turkey-hill, Strawberry, and Madden's dig-
gings, Pigeon-roost and Flint-hill. The ore is of
the finest quality, and yields from 60 to 65 per
cent.; labor is abundant and reasonable. Shot
factories are established, and situations are offer-
ed, by the high rock bluffs on the Mississippi, for
erecting others at an expense of about $1,50(C.
Steamboats pass the lead depots, daily, to and
from New Orleans, the towns on the Ohio, Cum-
berland and Tennessee rivers, and Saint Louis;
and freight to New Orleans may be obtained for
about thirty-seven and a half cents per hundred
The country is remarkably healthy, is well wa-
tered and timbered with pine, scyamore, hack-
berry, cotton-wood, sugar-maple, &c., and con-
tains many farms now under cultivation; good
farming land being interspersed throughout the
district. The predominating rock is limestone of
several varieties, and a beautiful pure white sand
stone, admirably adapted to glass manufacture, is
abundant, as is also the very best clay. The
farthest of these mineral lands are not more than
fifty miles from the bluffs on the Mississippi, from
whence the expense of transporting the lead is
from 20 to 50 cents per 100 pounds. Good roads
extend through the country; saw and grist mills
have been erected, and water power being com-
mon in all parts of the district, facilities are there
by afforded for the establishment or moniumtries
for rolling lead, and for other purposes.
The townships will be offered in the order
above designated, beginningwith the lowest sec-
tional number in each; the lands reserved by law
for the use of schools, or lants reserved for mill.

There was never such a game of deception
practised any where, as that which the instruments
of Clay and Calhoun are playing off upon the peo-
pie of Tennessee at this moment. Clay and, Cal.
houn, hopeless in every thing else, look to obtain
a secret revenge, in a vote of Tennessee support-
ing White and Bell in their bitter hostility to the
President, during the two last years, in Congress.
White' vote maintaining Clay'a recorded insult
on the journals of the Senate-the offspring of
,the Aeanest rmalic--will, in case hlie is supported
by,a majority in Tennessee, be construed as a ver-
dict of the President's own State against hiin; and it
will be exitnded to embrace and sanction all the
chargesof corruption, dictation, abuse of patron-
age, and abandonment of principle, which John
Bell, in his various speeches, has laid to the ac-
count of the President. This perfidious man,
(who, like White, never was a friend to the
President, but dissembled friendship for a time
to bring to himself political influence) after
intermarrying with a family of Gtneral Jack-
son's old and bitter personal enemies at Nash-
ville, closely allied with Mr. Clay, thus drawing
closer by family ties the political connection be-
tween them, has now openly taken the 'eld in
Tennessee, to- break down the character of the
administration, and to raise a party in the State to
arrest the current of public measures to wvh;ich
it has given impulse. The attempt, then,
- -to tarnish, by degrees, the policy which
has restored the democratic party-its princi-
ples, men, and measures-to the conduct of
public affairs; and the constant cry of Bell and all
his associates in Tennessee is against the party,
and for no party!- and yet in Washington, Bell and
his confederates are notorious as the most violent
Party men in Congress-laboring with the most
untiring and bitterest zeal with the opposition in
every great struggle-making a guerrilla war
against every leading friend of the administration
in both Houses, and allied by ties of closest per-
sonal intimacy with every prominent opposition
man, from Clay, Calhoun, and Webster, down to
Granger, Slade, Everett, and Gabriel Moore, the
most vindictive of the abolitionists and nullifiers.
And why do these violent partisans exclaim so
loudly against party in Tennessee? The simple
reason is, that they may avail themselves of local
influence and State pride in support of Judge
White in Tennessee, to sever it from its connexion
with its sister republican States in support of the
candidate preferred by them to carry out the prin-
ciples of Gen. Jackson's administration. If the
pervading feeling which would interest Tennes-
see in the success of the great party which has
supported Gen. Jackson against his enemies, was
suffered to prevail, the Tennessee managers for
the oppositionare assured that they must suffer
defeat at home. They, therefore, insist that
Tennessee must not go for any party,
but for Judge White. The people, they think,
wotld revolt at voting in favor of Calhoun's nulli-
fying party, or Clay's national republican party;
but they are to be induced to vote for both, un-
der pretence of voting against all parties in the
name of Judge White.
There never was a more artful plot to work
the natural bias of the State in favor of one of its
own citizens, to the overthrow of the principles
they have hitherto sustained, and the building up
the factions they have hitherto opposed. If every
electoral ticket, nominated for White through-
out the Uu.on, from first to last, was caoc',n, -ht
could not be elected. So absolutely hopeless
are his pret n,,ions, that if he were to get the
vote of ev-r., State where his friends have
ventured to propose to run a ticket for him,
he would not get but about one-third of the
electoral college. -The late elections in Mis-
souri and Illinois have shown so completely the
utter desperation of his tickets in those States,
that his friends have recommended the substitu-
tion of Harrison tickets in their stead, and repeated

defeats in Virginia have compelled the White
Central Committee to acquiesce in the proposition
to run the White ticket on joint account with Har-
rison, and to vote for him in case he should get
the vote claimed for him in the north. If Harri-
son does not get them, Mr. Van Buren must be
elected, as there is no White ticket north of the
Potomac and Ohio. This makes it clear, that
White is the mere factor of Harrison in the
south, to take up votes for his use; and
even Duff Green, who was the first to bring
out White, admits that the only prospect of
the election of either by the electorAl college,is
the transfer of Virginia, South Carolina, Georgia,
and Massachusetts,. which, he says, he has "little
doubt will eventually cast their votes for General
Harrison." What then is the prospect of White,
without electoral candidates before the people suf-
ficient to give him more than one-third of the
electoral college, and with the understanding of
his Central Committee in Virginia, for that State;
and Green's admission for the nullifiers generally,
that they are to vote for Harrison, if it will suffice
o lect him? Every friend White has in Tennes-
see.canno--oV -t perceive that White is now usec
for the sole purpose of dividing the Republican
party of the youth, for the benefit of the northern
opposition ;to General Jackson's- administration,
which has rallied'on Harrison.
The ,posture which Judge White now takes,
4is precisely the reverse of that which the letter,
signed by the caucus consisting of STAWDEFER
Jt-.o^rfltB&J~ua^rSCa, BELL, FonHsTEa, Ly.KA
and DicKiNrsoN, announced. They held that Mr
Van Buren and Judge White would be-c the only
candidates; that both being friends to the Admin

that place on the 23d ult., on a visit to Mrs. Coffee,
the widow of General Coffee, and a near relative of
MHA. Jackson. We have understood that General
Coffee confided some of his dispositions concern-
ing his affairs and family to the care of his relative
and friend, the President, who has not, until his
present visit to Tennessee, had an opportunity
since the death of General Coffee, of giving his
personal attention to a trust which he holds in the
light of a religious duty.

f We have no additional returns of much impor-
tance, and shall, therefore, omit the publication
of them until next week, when we hope to be able
Sto present a complete return from all the counties.
SEnough has been received to place the election of

Stenant Goveroonry a large majority; Gen. JouHN

fluence of Clay in Kentucky, and Webster in Mas-
sachusat tts, in the support of Harrison!!
And it is to accomplish these ends of enmi-
ty to General Jackson, that White is press.
ed upon the people of Tennessee. To di-
vide that State from its republican brethren is es-
ser.tial to the plot of the opposition, and this is to
be accomplished by the dictation of White and
Bell, while they pretend that the President has
undertaken to dictatls to the State, and com-
pel it to maintain its republican principles.
The truth is, Bell's and White's dictation is artfully
accomplished, by inculcating the belief that the
President dictates. The President would be hap-
py, doubtless, to see his State support the princi-
ples and party which have supported him and
Tennessee heretofore; but the force which would
drive the State from its old political moorings, and
divide it from its old political friends, proceeds
from the local influence of Bell and White, and
the political leaders and presses which they have
arrayed in the State in support of the objects of
the opposition.

We have hailed this new regulation in the sale
of public lands with exceeding pleasure, and have
noticed with astonishment the railing of the oppo-
sition presses against so righteous a measure.
Nothing but the most reckless malice could sug-
gest a word against the Government for an act
So imperiously demanded for the good of the
country. We who are on the ground can vouch
for the outrageous speculations in the public do-
mainsi by monopolies and banks The great money-
ed associations of the east have been sending out
their agents amongst us like a legion of evil spir-
its, and their coming has every where brought a
curse. They -will seize a tract of miles in extent
and refuse to sell an acre of it until time may so
enhance the value that a section will be equivalent
to thousands of dollars. What benefit are such
settlers to a young State' None. The President
of a bank lately came to our village with quires
of unsigned bank notes of his own bank, and
plunged deeply into speculations on public lands.
His capital was boundless, for he filled up his own
notes as he wanted t'ern! Did not such a system
of oppression on the people call loudly for redress?
And has not our glorious old President redressed
it?-Kcdamazoo Statesman.
No-rE BYr Ti GLOBE.-The above extract from
a paper printed in Michigan, is another excellent
commentary on the wisdom of the specie circu-
lar, and on the folly of Mr. Clay's rag bank speech
at WoodforJ.t against the circular.
What a misearablewant of sound law and states-
manship the hired advocate of the mrnamxoth
monopoly exhibits, in arguing that the reso-
lution of 1816, which is only permissive on its
face, is therefore mandatory. How ridiculous
he appears, also, in arguing this, when in the
same year, the charter to the Bank made the
duty imperative or mandatory to receive its bills;
and theri before they have been taken, and not all
others; though on Mr. Clay's reasoning now,
that charter conferred no exclusive privilege on
the United States Bank, and the Treasury without
finding it out till now, has always been obliged
in law, ever since 1816, to take all the notes of
specie paying banks, as well as the notes of the
United States Bank. What a discovery! One
which neither he, nor the Bank, nor Mr. Webster,
made, or ever thought of making, til the Bank
died! On the contrary, the Bank held and acted
otherwise : so did the Treasury : and so, in express
terms, did a committee of Congress in 1826, of
which Mr. Webster himself was a-member. But
now, forsooth, when the rags of the Bank have
lost the exclusive privilege by its death and an
act of the last session of Congress, Mr. Clay for

absurd doctrine, that the same exclusive" privi-
lege belongs to every petty corporation in the
country-however small, remote, and inconve-
nient-however unwise its charter-provided it is
nominally a specie paying bank.
The motive of all this is apparent. It is to
tempt these State banks to over issues, improvi-
dent speculations, and consequent ruin, to bank-
rupt the Treasury, by having in its vaults mere
"white linen" money, or vile rags, instead of spe-
cie-and then to cry out fir the necessity of
another mammoth United States Bank, to ride
rough shod over the people, as well as Congress

Fellow-Citizens: This day may be regarded
as the political sabbath of our country. It has its
duties as well as its pleasures. We do not gather
around this table only to rejoice in the festivities
of the day, but to lift up our hearts in gratitude
for the freedom we enjoy-to revert with hallow-
ed and lofty exultat on to the ennobling recollec-
tions of the day we celebrate, and above all,
solemnly to inquire whether the heritage of liberty
transmitted to us by our sires as wholly untouched
by decay, unimpaired by corruption; as free, stain-
less, and glorious as when it came into our posses,
Fellow-Citizens.' I congratulate you that you
are enabled to respond to that inquiry in a tone
of proud and conscious rectitude; that you can
stand and look upon the watch tower of freedom,
and looking at the present and the future, say, all's
well, all's well.
Fellow-Citizens.' we have done our duty. Li-
berty requires that its votaries should be vigilant.
We have been vigilant. It requires that they
should be determined. We have been resolute.
We too have had our struggle, and we have come
out of it without shame. We can look our chil-
dren in the face, and say we have acted towards
you as our sires have acted towards us. We found

were told, that if we dared to oppose it we would
bring poverty upon the country and ruin upon
ourselves. We preferred poverty to ruin and
bondage, and we dared thr contest. It is un-
necessary to say that we triumphed. But
where are the deadly consequences? Is our
country stricken with poverty? Does the wail of
a ruined people rise up to heaven in accusation
ag-ainst u,? Are our ships rotting at our wharves,
and the shuttle resting on the loom, the plough
rusting in the furrow? Are our canals a solitude,
our cities a, wilderness? Say, fellow-citizens, has
the horror of desolation swept over our land, and
are our people stricken to the dust, bewailing the
blow that struck the MONSTER BANK to the
earth? On the contrary, the sun in his wide
course from east to west, does not shine upon a
land so prosperous, so happy, so blest with all
that can exalt and enrich a people. Let these
faltering predictions be no more believed, and
let us trust that God made men to be free, and
that neither duty nor policy demands that we
should be slaves.' Resistance to tyrants is obedi-
ence to God, and never can be followed by aught
other than auspicious and prosperous results.

The democracy of Pennsylvania cannot be in

Mr. BSa tAM, in his Carthage speech, notices the
nomination of the Hon. John McLean, for the
Presidency, by the same persons who, shortly af-
ter, figured (ridiculously enough) in the nomina-
tion of Gen. Harrison; but he did not tell us why
they so suddenly deserted the jurist for the chief
tain. It was not because they believed Harrison
was the best qualified, else why did they not no-
minate him in the tlirst instance? Nor was it be-
cause they believed him the most popular. What,
then, was the reason of this somerset among the
pinks of conaistenc) ? We will tell you. They
found John McLean a patriot-an incorrupti1l.
patriot-the friend of the people and of popular
suffrage-one who regarded the t election of Presi-
dent by the House of Representatives as danger-
ous as it is aristocratical. With such a man, they
could not drive the corrupt bargain of three pluck-
ene. They therefore instantly abandoned him;
and the venal prints, which before lauded him to
the skies, have, ever since, endeavored to tarnish
his well-earned fame, In Gen. Ha-rison they
found a more pliant instrument; they flattered the
old man's vanity until he consented to make a
trio; and he is now weak and vain enough to be-
lieve that if they can defeat an election by the
people, he will be elected by the House. He is
even so credulous as to believe that Old Kentuclky,

of her brave so ns, who teu wvctims to s blunders

Agreeably to previous notice, the PreSident 6f
the United States was inet by the Citizens' and
Young Men's Committees of Arrangements, and
ny an immense concourse of his friends and fel-
low-citizens, at the residence ef Col. Charles I.
Love. After the company had partaken of a cold
collation, sufficient for five hundred persons, serv-
ed under arbors, prepared by the hospitality of
Col, Love, a procession was formed in the follow-
ing order:
Presidents of the Day
President of the United States
Revolutionary Soldiers
Governor of the State and Officers
Members of Congress
Band of Music
Mayor and Aldermen of Nashville
Judge of the State
Strangers and Visitors
Citizens' Committee
Young Men's Committee
Citizens Generally
In this order, the procession proceeded to the
public square, where a short halt was made in or-
der'to enable the Marshals of the day to arrange
into order the crowds of citizens and visitors who
were in waiting ready to join the procession. Af-
ter the arrangements were completed, the preccts-
sion moved down Market street to a beautiful
grove, near the head of the island, where a plen.
tiful dinner was served to all who chose to par-
take, arranged on parallel tables.
The honorable GEORGE W. CAMPBELL,
and Dr. FELIX ROBERTSON presided, assist-
ed by Colonel C. I. Love, the honorable J. Cation,
Major D. Graham, Colonel R. Weaklhy, Dr. J.
Hadley, Dr. J. Young, Captain T. P. Minor,

Smiley, Esquires, acted as Marshals of the day.
We are confident, from eery estimate which
cou d be made, by those who have had the most
experience in such affairs, and from thuse who
took the greatest pains to ascertain the numbers
accurately, that there must have been five tlhou-
sand persons present. The company was coni-
posed of the bone and sinew of the land-the
real people. Large timibers of citizens, men of
the fii- t consideration, attended from all the
neighboring counties, and numbers from the States
of Alabama, Kentucky and Mississippi. It w 's a
proucd day for Tennessee. The lively, enthusi-
astic arid cordial gre ting which the President re-
ceived from all quarters, shows the inviolability of
the almost universal, love and esteem in which he
is held by his republican friends of this State.

Some attempt has been made lately to get up a
panic in regard to the supplies of the present year;
but the xvriter in the Commercial List assures us
that it is without foundation. To the same effect
is the testimony of the Miner's Journal at Potts-
vi.lle, which states that a greater quantity by at
least 75,000 tons, has been or will be forwarded
from that vicinity to Philadelphia this year than
last. Nevertheless, the price of the article is un-
commonly high, resulting partly from the increas-
ed price of labor, and partly, perhaps, from other
circumstances. It is, however, some consolation
to know that we are not likely to be fr.:ze out, as
well as starved out, the coming winter-though
in truth, at the prices which almost all articles re-
lating to the sustenance and comfort of the body
command, we do not well see how people in mo-
derate circumstances will be able to make the two
enos of the year meet.-NX.w York Journal ofj' Cantm.

astonishment than a calm and dispassionate con-
sideration of the materials employed, and the
means used, for the purpose of promoting the
election of Judge White, in this State. That
consideration, I propose, briefly to bestow upon
the subject. The first act in this drama of hum-
bug and political chicanery, was the nomination
of Judge White by tihe Legislature-a body
having no more constitutional power or legitimate
authority, to interfere in the election of President
of the United States, than the May or and Alder-
men of the city of Mobile. It was a deliberate
anid deep laid scheme, to compromit the vote of
the State, without the authority, and contrary to
the :will of the people. This act of usurpation
was promnptly disclaimed and repelled by public

They looked through the whule e pane Ot thd
State, and seized upon names of great weight,
and have unblushingly attempted to appropriate
them to their unprincipled party purposes Hence
we see the names of Mairphy and McClung,lBridges
and Mardis, figuring on the "people's ticket."
It is impossible, however, that Mr. Murphy or Mr.
Bridges can ever, voluntarily, be instrumental in
the election of Judge White, or of his co-federate,
John Tyler. They both belong to the Republi.
can party, and have, through a long course of
years, merited and received the support of that
party,-and they cannot and will not unite or co-
operate with a party compound of all political
sects, kindred and tongues, on account of a slight
preference for Judge WVhite; more especially when
that preference is not founded on any idea of the
superiority of Judge White's qualifications, but
'his locality alone. They will remember that they
are American citizens,'and they will be governed
by American feelings, rather than by a narrow and
illiberal prejudice, which confines political and
public merit within certain prescribed geogr-aphi-
cal limits. But to return to the conduct of those
who framed "the people's ticket." Having in the
formation of an electoral ticket consummated the
plan that they thought most likely to concentrate,
and to embody the discordant materials of thle op-
position,-their next attempt Was to draw into that
plan, by every alurement they could contrive, all
the ends of the opposition. The persons in the
South most opposed to thie election of Mr. Van
Buren, are the friends of Mr. Clay, the friends of
the late Mr. Crawford and the nullifiers. To the
friends of Mr. Clay and the late Mr. Crawford,
they held up that system of policy, by which both
their favorites had been subjected to mortification,
disappointment ariA defeat; and to the nullifiers
they held up in all their terrors, the Proclamation
and the Force Bill. This was all very well. But
let us examine for a moment how all these things
are to be remedied, WLo is it that is to pour the
balmn of relief into the wounded feelings of the
friends of Mr. Clay? Judge White, who has been
uniformly opposed to that gr, at man, through
the whole course of his illustrious life,-who is
to carry out the principles of that wounded and
persecuted patriot, Win. II. Crawford? Mr.
Van Buren was his personal and political
friend. His claimrns must give way; Judge
White is the m:nn. Who is to remove that dark
cloud which the nullifiers say the proclamation
and the force bill threw around the destinies of
the Republic? Judge White-the very man who
advocated the one and voted for the other. How
can any honest advocate of thle doctrine of nullifi-
cation, promote the election of a man aiho has
openly and publicly, in a high public capacity, ex-
pres.ed his approbation o'f the proclamation, and
recorded his vote in favor of the fore bill? Let
the nullifiers come out boLly and honestly at
once, and adniit the truth, that they prefer Judge
White only on account of his political apostacy,
and that although they love the treason, they hate
the traitor. I appeal to any honest nullifier to
say what he would think of a prominent mr- nber
of his own party, who had been true to the faith
for thirty years, and who, in the downhill of life,
at the advanced age of three score years, had
abandoned the principles by which hie had been
* previously governed, and attach himself to a par-
ty professing and acting upon principles diamnetri-
cally opposite to his own Would ha not think
that the magician had waved his wand over him,
or that he had been moved and seduced by the in-
stigation of the devil, or the hope of reward? But
Sit is not to the friends of disappointed aspirants,
no matter how distinguished, nor to the nuilifiers,
that I appeal to detect and expose anid defeat the
machinations of these arch framiers of "the peo-
ple's ticket." Every man capable of the least re-
flection must know and admit, that at least sewvn
out of ten of Judge White's supporters in this
r State are nullifiers; and it is an admitted principle
in the politics of this country, that every man
Selected to office is bound to obe-y the will, and
carry into effect the principles o' a majority of his
constituents. If then it be true that the nullifiers
constitute the power of Judge Whitt'i strength in
5 the South, and that he will be bound, in the event
Sof his election, to obey their will, and to adminis.
s ter the Government upon their principles; I ap-
peal to the great body of the democracy of the
country; I ask the fri-nds of the Union and the
* guardians of the liberties of the present and of fu-
ture ages, if they intend to slumber over thci:
rights ard duties, until the serpent's hiss of nullifi.
cation is again heard ringing in their ears, and its
fangs are fastened upon the vitals of the constitu-
- tios? I'UBLIUS.

SatutiMay and yesterday, tome recent information
is received, A battle was fought at Etla, (Mexico,,
between the Federal and Government troops,i n
which the latter came off victorious. The officers
taken were principally shot. There are strong
signs of a general revolution throughout Mexico,
which will probably result in the overthrow of the
Central Government.
The minister or agent from the United States
to Texas, returned in the schooner Flora, with
despatches for the seat of Government.
Several armed Mexican schooners were at Vera
Cruz, preparing for a cruize against Texas.
By the arrival yesterday of the schooner Flora,
from Velasco, Texas, the Collector of this port
received a letter from a gentleman at that place,
dated the 13th inst., in which he states:
"The President, with the advice and consent of
his cabinet, has rescinded so much of the decree
of the 21st of July last, declaring Matamoras in a
state of blockade, as relates to American vessels
not carrying provisions or articles contraband of
war to the enemy.

The schooner George & Mary, Capt. WILLY,
arrived at this port Saturday afternoon We are
indebted to Capt. W. for the following informa.
tion, obtained by him from the Express Rider,
who arrived at Black Creek 22d instant. A de-
tachment of 110 men, under command of Major
PIEfCE, having information that the Indians were
in their vicinity, went in pursuit of them; on ar-
riving at General CLINCH'S plantation they found
300 Indians, with about 100 horses hobbled, and
300 head of cattle: the Indians were immediately
attacked and repulsed, after a battle of one hour,
the whites having one killed, owing to his horse
taking fright and running in the midst of the Ii-
dians, and 16 wounded. The Indian loss was 10
left (lead on the field, their wounded they carried
off. The Indians retreated to a hammock am usual:
they immediately rallied and pursued the whites
to ithiin two miles of Micanopy, when they loft.
The Express Rider states that Lient. IElawE'-r
had again distinguished himself, and that Major
P. was making preparations to attack them on the
fbilowing day.-Charleton Courier, Yug. 28.

among a mass of trash, similar to that which the

that our friends do not become more confident thai

Madness and Civilization.-It is a curious fact
but impossible to be controverted, that madness i
one of the attendants upon civilization and intel
lectual cultivation. According to many well au
thenticated accounts, it is comparatively unknown
among savages: although we should consider th,
statement very questionable, we can easily imagine
that in a state of barbarism its virulent activity i
rarely excited. It is easily conceivable that th
mere animal in the shape of man, who eats, drink
and sleeps, giving no thought for the morrow, i
less liable to become deranged than he of a mor
f polished and meditative character. Von Humbold
