apostles, they sally forth as "fishers of

to which they may be perniciously at-
tached, so far as regards the good of
their souls ; in short, they are caballeros

their honest, independent callings, in the

THE SPANISH PEASANr.-No Arab,
Wach'abree,Kirse, or any other wander-
er over the face of the earth, can be more
indifferent about his resting place, than
the Spanish peasant. He travels with
his whole paraphernalia of comforts
about him. The Manta, a various col-
ored woollen blanket, about four feet
wide by eight feet long, serve him as
cloak and bed, house and home; one
end is doubled and sewn up about a
third of the whole length, forming a bag
for the feet in cold weather on horse-
back (the peasant seldom rides with
saddles, but seated sideways on their
packs,) or for the head when on foot, or
wherein to stow provisions, a spare shirt,
a puchero, or any other little delicacy
for the road. They have a peculiar
knack of rolling themselves up in the
manta, protecting most effectually all
the more interesting portion of their
nersons from the wind or rain, while
[By the Rev. Orville Dewey ]-"We
arrived at the field of Waterloo, nine
miles from Brussels, after sunset. We
ascended the mound raised in comme-
moration of the great engagement of
June 18th, 1815. It is two hundred feet
high, and has a monument on the sum-
mit, consisting of a high pedestal, on
which reposes the British lion, a colossal
figure, and finely executed. From this
elevation every point in the position of
the armies and the field of battle, is easi-
ly comprehended. It is now a ploughed
field, with nothing remarkable about it ;
but bare and naked as it is, of every thing
but the interest which the great action
gives it, I would not but have seen it.
We descended and passed through the
very centre of the field-the road to Ge-
nappe leading in that direction ; yes,
we rode quietly through that peaceful
field, where eighteen years ago, on a
summer's night-the same moon shining
that now lighted our way-thousands
lay in the sleep of death, and thousands
more lifted up, on every side, faces mar-
ked with the death agony, and uttered
wailing that measured out the long,long
hours of that dreadful night. As if to
complete the contrast, we heard the
sound of a violin as we drove off from
the battle field, and turning aside to the
quarter from whence it came, observed
a dance before the door of one of the
At Genappe-a few miles distant-be-
neath the window of the chamber where
I slept, was the street where the retreat-
ing French raised the last barrier against
the pursuing Prussians and Brunswick-
ers. Along that street sounded the fear-
ful "hurrah !" which, as Prince Blucher's
report says, drove the panic-struck sol-
diers of Bonaparte from their post. By
the very window from which I looked,
rushed the furious Russian cavalry,
which swept away the feeble barricade
like chaff; and on every stone of that
pavement, blood-human blood had
flowed. Yet now, what but these dread
recollections themselves could be more
thrilling than the awful stillness, the
deep repose, which settled upon that
fearful spot-the moonbeams falling up-
on the silent walls, and upon pavements
which no footsteps disturbed, aind seem-
ing to consecrate all nature to prayer
and love, not to wrath and destruction."

GENTLEMEN ROBnBERs.--The street we
are describing is built, as all the world.
must be aware, upon a gradually ascen.
ding ground, so that when we reach the
Custom House, we command the view
on either side, towards the Prado, or the
"Puerta del Sol." In this advantageous
position, are to be found knots of stout
fellows, rolled up in their cloaks, sonicme
emborado8 up to the eyes, others con-
tenting themselves with giving the am-
ple folds a knowing jerk under the left
arm, all differently engaged, smoking or
talking, but keeping a sharp look-out up
and down the street; to judge from their
bluff faces and flourishing whiskers, thi
conic termination of the hat, with a tuft
of black silk adorning the top and one
side of the up-turned brim, not to mention
the broad band of black velvet which
nearly covers the whole concern, and
the thick cigar stuck in the corner of the
mouth, one might fancy they were he
cendados of Andalusia, come to town on
a frolic, or chalanes (horsejockies) from
Cordova, with a string of incomparable
coursers; their gaily embroidered waist-
coato, or jaoctks, shining out from an
opening in the coeia, and the showy silk
kerchief about their necks, fastened by a
golden ring in front, might even induce
the observer to suspect they belonged
to titled fathers, and the grandeza, could
sitch athletic forms and thews and si-
news adorn that puny race. Not one
of these suppositions, however, corpes
near the truth; they are simply indus-
trious lads, of high spirit, who prefer
the trabujo and sabre to any more me-
chanical instruments. They assemble
morning and evening, at the usual hours
of departure and arrival of wayfaring
people; they note down with care their
comings in and goings out, and find
means of ascertaining pretty exactly
the sum of worldly riches they carry
about them. afterwards, like zealous
clatter of many iron-shod feet coming in
a rsh towards him, the cause being ab-
solutely concealed in an atmosphere of
white dust, rendered more mysterious
by the frequent bang of a stick on some
very good conductor of sound ? Such
sensations will not be diminished when,
like some worthies of old, emerging
from a cloud, appear from twenty to
thirty large asses, in full gallop, obser-
ving no direct line, but always selecting
the flag-way, to the great fright and dis-
comfiture of the passengers; the young
and less experienced borricoe giving
evident proofs of both by occasional so-
mersets, very cleverly executed, not in
the least impeding their speed, or bring-
ing their persons within reach of the
resounding vara of the conductor. This
despot is mounted on the most confi-
dential and easy paced of the troop, seat-
ed within two or three inches of his tail,
with a lime bagdoubled under him; he
wears a gacho (hat) with a high-colored
handkerchief tied beneath it, the corners
floating in the wind behind ; a vest of
coarse yellow flannel, with sleeves of
the same; a red sash round his waist.
His eyes peering out of their lime-
scorched sockets, as if very anxious to
leave their resting-place, he directs the
movements of the troop, sometimes by
the voice, but always when he can over-
take a loiterer, by means of a limber
long rattan, which he brandishes with a
vigorous arm. You have but a moment
to make all these remarks, he appears
and is past, fading in a cloud of lime-
i... ..,.n..o .nfrm the. drsae ndal kls. no
moment with their manta, in two or
three folds, the restidropping gracefully
to the ground. This produces a very
odd effect, as if they were so many head-
less horses with bandages to prevent
further hemorrhage. It answers the
end proposed most fully, viz. preventing
the animal from straying.
CONVEaTS IN MADRID.-One of the
most remarkable features in Madrid is
the predominance of large convents in
the best situations and best streets, often
monopolising more space than should
reasonably fall to their share. The
fronts of the "holy houses" extend them-
selves wide up or down the street, caus-
ing a dead blank, and producing a ble-
mish in the general effect, destroying
the symmetry of the calle, and putting
one strongly in mind of those stout,
selfish, and ill-natured gentlemen, often
met with in a public carriage, who, after
ascertaining that no fellow traveller is a
match for them, keep all the glasses
clown if a cold night, or up if a hot day,
merely because they choose to do so,
regardless o'f the int eaties of the pig-
mies about them. This monotonous
appearance is, however, frequently
agreeably relieved by the close shaven
polls of some of the "fathers" appearing
at the little windows of their cells, and
condescending to look upon what is
passing in the world. It is not a little
striking, after sating the sight with the
throng of well-dressed men and women,
of showy equipages, and still more
showy belles within them, to raise one's
eyes and behold the various countenan-
ces of these "anchorites" peering down
upon you-some fat ruddy, and shining,
others pale and sallow; with strong
black beards, and flashing eyes, as if in
the act of calculating the use that you
and yours should be turned to; how to
convert a greater portion of your tempo-

Or, perhaps, that earnest look may be
sent after the supple form of some pass-

afar ; for we know that holier and bet-

in the desert, and on roots and water, to
resist the instigations of Satan, and tri-
umph over the "flesh ;" and what then
must be the strivingss" of their succes-
sors, who to make victory doubly glori-

cakes, and liquors ?

capassos (panniers) made of esparto,
hanging on each side of the horse, with
the jockey perched between them, pull-
ing up at the door of his customers.-
This expeditious mode of distribution
has nothing disgusting or filthy about
it, the panniers being very deep, almost
touching the ground, and prevented by
a short stick passed under the horse's
belly from striking together, or impe-
ding his march. The contentsare suffi-
ciently protected from wet and dust.-

IOUISIANA-VAN BUREN TRIUMPH!
From news received last evening by the Southern
Mail, it appears that the opposition in Louisiana
are 'floored' by the recent election in that State.--
Eight new members are elected to the Senate,
White 5, Van Buren 3. In the House of Repre-
sentatives, the returns shew White 14, Van Buren.
The information is gathered from a list of the re-
turns published in the New Orleans Bee of the 19th,
which after congratulating the State on this truly
democratic result, adds:-"The opposition papers
from the country appear to be considerably chafed
at the results of the election; some fume at a round
rate, particularly the 'Olive Branch'-others take
their defeat more coolly. But what astonished us
the most was, to hear the leading opposition papers
of the State, 'halloo before they were out of the
woods.' It it quite a pity they did not 'delay' a
little longer, and then their 'hasty glee' would have
sounded less ridiculous."
This r .sult is highly important in many respects.
In addition to the new force, we have three of the
old me.nbers of the Senate for Van Buren, making
on jrint ballot an overwhelming majority, and Judge
Porter's place in the U. S. Senate is to be supplied
at the coining session. If, therefore,the news is to
be relied on and there is no reason to doubt it, he
must give place to a sound democrat; and Louisiana
in the great Presidential contest, will be found ar-
rayed in support of the national nominees. Judge
White is powerless in the Southwest, as he is every
where else. iHe and Harrison are doomed to a
On Monday last we copied from the Cincinnati
Republican, a statement signed by R. O'B. recent-
ly of Philadelphia, giving his unfavorable impres-
sions of General Harrison, received during a visit
to the whig nominee, for the purpose of forming an
opinion of his character, and, as nearly as possible,
of his fitness for the station to which the opposition
are desirous of calling him. R. O'B. was, up to th-
moment of his visit, a zealous Harrisonite, having
been very active and prominent in his behalf in
Philadelphia, and he was accompanied by a number
of gentleman of the same way of thinking, from
this city nnd elsewhere. With but one exception,
they came to the same conclusion that Harrison
was grossly unfit to fill the Presidential chair, and
that they would withdraw from the ranks of his
supporters. That his fellow citizens might no lon-
ger be deceived, R. O'B. communicated his impres-
sions to the Cincinnati Republican, and for this act
we observe that he is not only coarsely censured,
but bitterly abused, by some of the whig presses,
which seem to have a marvellous dread of suffering
General Harrison to be understandingly canvassed.
'The Inquirer, for instance, denounces the writer of
the communication in theCincinnaii Republican as a
'traitor' to be 'despised;' but our contemporary forgot
to shew the treason. Is it treachery for a private
citizen to give his impressions to the public of the
Jitness of a candidate for the Presidency? Does he
expose himself to such a charge by endeavoring fa
shew that the whig party are supporting a man,who,
if elected, would discredit them and their country?.
If so, the expression of any honest opinion is trea-
son, and all who, speaking from personal knowledge
of Harrison's incapacity, fulfil their duty to the re-
public by opposing him, are traitors.
The Inquirer likewise omits to mention that R.
Q'B. did not volunteer his statement in the public
prints. The result of the visit of himself and his
friends to General Harrison had been bruited about
the streets of Cincinnati, and was a topic of con-
versation. It -was denied by a whig paper in that
place, called the Echo, the editor of which was
rash enough to defy the friends of Van Buren to
the proof, asserting that they were cornered and
could not escape, as the gentleman referred to was
at hand. They were denounced as self-convicted
slanderers if they could not make out the case; and
it was made out, the proof being elicited, not by
the solicitations of Van Buren men, but by the
taunting and bragging defiance of a Harrison press.
The Inquirer and ourselves differ widely as to
what constitutes treason. We regard the private
citizen, who, on abandoning the support of a can-
didate, gives sufficient reasons to his countrymen
for the act, as one deserving of applause for his mo-
ral courage; and were he to support that candidate
against the conviction of his judgment, we should
then look upon him as the worst of traitors to his
country. The Inquirer, however, reverses the case.
With it the private citizen who refuses to be chain-
ed to the car of an incompetent nominee is a trai-
tor, while Senators who violate their pledges, aban-
don their party, and first betray and then abuse
their constituents, are men to be honored and che-
rished. But if, however, the Inquirer's denuncia-
tion of R. O'B. is a mere rhetorical flourish, be-
cause it could find nothing else to say, and it and
its friends iti reality agreewith us as to the compo-
nents of treason, their capabilities for despising must
be called into constant requisition for the benefit of
individuals now standing in their own ranks.
Valedictory.-Dr. Draper gives the valedictory
lecture to his courseon Reformed Medicine,this even-
ing,atthe Halrofthe Franklin institute,commencing
at half past 8 o'clock. The previous lectures will
be reviewed, with additional remarks on fevers.-
These lectures have been well attended, and have
given much satisfaction to those who were anxious
to understand the rationale of the system. Dr.
Draper is well qualified for the task of lucid expla-
nation. His scientific acquirements, as well as his
experience, are extensive; he speaks well, illustrates
forcibly, and has great advantages as a popular lec-
turer. We understand that he will shortly give a
course of lectures on the same subjects in New
York, previous to his autumnal series in this city.

AFFAIRS IN FLORIDA.
Our intelligence from Florida is, that Governor
Call, who has the command of the entire force to be
engaged against the Seminoles, only delays the
commencement of another campaign until the arri-
val of 1,000 volunteers from Tennessee, which are
daily expected. He hopes, with the Tennesseans,
the Florida militia, and the United States troops in
the territory, to commence the campaign by the 1st
of August. Amongst the other objects of the pre-
sent measures, is that of destroying the crops of the
We very much fear that the climate of Florida
will prove the worst foe these troops will meet with.
We cannot accede to the propriety of carrying
troops froin Tennessee into the malarious swamps
of Florida in the month of August. It will, we
doubt not, be attended with a waste of human life
which the object to be attained will by no means
sanction. In regard to the health of the troops al-
ready there, we may judge from the following facts.
At Fort Drane, at our last accounts,out of the com-
paratively small force stationed there, there are re-
ported 146 on the sick-list, among whom are five
out of seven officers. From Black Creek' the ac-
counts are truly deploracle-and 52 have died there
in 40 days.
The Indians are still in small parties, committing
depredations. The only question is, can they, in
the succeeding sickly months, be followed into the
swamps, and routed from them ?

Montgomery, July 20.-Fifteen hundred Ten-
nessee mounted men arrived here on Saturday last,
and are now encamped upon the borders of our
town. We understand that Yoholo and Jim Boy
the two friendly chiefs who rendered such impor-
tant service in the Creek war, are becoming dis-
satisfied with the whites and with Gen. Jesup par-
ticularly. It is said they petitioned Jesup for leave
to keep their relatives, who were hostile prisoners,
with them, and that they might not be carried west-
ward, with the other hostiles, nor be sent to Geor-
gia for trial. This request Jesup refused, which is
said to have rendered Yoholo and Jim Boy very
much dissatisfied. In consequence of it Gen. Jesup
intends keeping a large force in the nation until the
result of the chief's resentment is more fully ascer-
tained. Some danger is apprehended also from the
deportment of the friendly Indians upon their h -
ing informed that they were to be sent off to the
west immediately with the hostiles. They can
raise 3,000 fighting men at least, and some say
more. They had lately 1100 under arms who are
all still in the nation; and there are a large number
besides residing in Taledega, Chambers and other
upper counties who took no part in the campaign.

CREEK INDIANS.-About two thousand of these
Indians, who were either captured or surrendered
themselves to the government forces, arrived here
in barges yesterday, on their way to the far-far

they will, we understand, remain until such time as
steamboats can be procured to forward them to the
place of their destination.
CINCINNATI AT THE CLOSE OF. 1835, is the title
of a paper in a late number of the Western Monthly
Mazagine, giving a statistical view of that most
flourishing city, the leading features of which we
shall extract as being of general interest. We, of
Baltin'more, too, look with some selfish gratification
upon the rapid growth of this great western mart,
seeing that we are several scores of miles nearer to
it Ehan any of our Atlantic rivals. Dr. Drake, of
Cincinnati, is the author of this interesting paper,
which he has prepared with care, Hle gives the
distance from Cincinnati to a number of cities, the
principal of which are as follows. From N. York,
by way of Lake Erie, 900 miles: from New Or-
leans, 860 miles: from Philadelphia 617; from
Charleston 600: and from Baltimore 518. That
city, which is built on an elevated plain, surround-
ed by a noble amphitheatre of hills, is situated near-
ly midway down the Ohio river, being 455 miles
from Pittsburg, where by the junction of the Alle.,
gany and Monongahela rivers the Ohio is formed,
and 504 from the junction of the Ohio with the
In 1810 the population amounted to between two
and three thousand; in 1820 to ten thousand; in
1826 to sixteen thousand, and in 1836 to thirty-one
thousand, to which ought to be added the suburbs
opposite on Kentucky shore containing four thou-
sand. Dr. Drake estimates that in 1850 Cincinnati
and suburbs will number one hundred thousand in-
habitants. Nor is this expectation at all extrava-
gant, for its unparalleled growth thus far has taken
place without the aid of any work of internal im-
provement but the Miami Canal and two Macadam
turnpikes, one of twelve and the other of sixteen
miles. An enumeration is then made of the vari-
ous works projected and in progress which when
completed will feed the commerce of Cincinnati.-
Ten are there described, most of them extensive,
and designed to be finished within six years.
The region inseparably connected with and de-
pendent upon Cincinnati as its great commercial and
manufacturing mart, is described as being that im-

itself, the eastern portion of Indiana, and a part of
Kentucky, a surface containing about ten millions

the 1st inst., William J. YoONm was at 8 o'clock,
called to the Chair, and Messrs. Montgomery P.
Young and Wm. A. Story were appointed Secreta-
ries. After the meeting was organized, the Chair-
man stated hie object of it was to elect three Dele-
gates to represent the ward in the Democratic
County Convehtion, for the purpose of nominating
suitable candidates to be supported at the ensuing
October election, and also candidates for delegates
to the State Convention, to amend the present State
Constitution at the Presidential Election in No-
On motion it was Resolved, that the meeting
proceed to nominate persons as candidates for dele-
gates, and out of those nominated to determine by
ballot the three delegates, and that the poll be kept
open at least half an hour, and until all shall have
voted, the Secretaries to act as tellers, and Mr.
Wm. Myers and George Giles as Judges. Where-
upon the nomination was made, the poll was open-
ed, and continued open until a quarter of 9 o'clock,

The following Resolutions were. offered to the
meeting,and adopted with but one dissenting voice.
Resolved, That we approve of the nomination of
Martin Van Buren for the Presidency, and Richard
M. Johnson for the Vice-Presidency of the United
States, as we are satisfied that if elected they will
carry out the principles which have distinguished
the administration of the patriotic hero of New
Orleans, General Andrew Jackson.
Resolved, That we hold in utter contempt the
political traitors, Jesse R. Burden and George N.
Baker, and believe them unworthy of holding their
seats as Senators of Pennsylvania County, as they
have betrayed their constituents in voting for the
charter of the Bank of the United States and for the
Resolved, That we condemn the attempt to bring
forward Joel B. Sutherland as a candidate for Con-
gress, after he declined in the American Sentinel
being a candidate, and now refuses to disavow his
connection with Jesse R. Burden and the Bank of
the United States, and that we now instruct our de-
legates and those who may be substituted in their
places, to support in the delegation no candidate,
for any office, Congressional or otherwise, unless
such candidate shall unequivocally, in writing, con-
demn the political conduct of Jesse R. Burden.
Resolved, That it is wrong to go into the city of
Philadelphia for a candidate for Congress for the
First District, when he have so many staunch De-
mocrats residing in Southwark, who are able to re-
present us in the National Council, and we instruct
the delegates elected this evening to see that our
wishes on this subject be carried into execution.
Resolved that the delegates elected this evening
shall have power to fill any vacancies that may oc-
cur in their body, and the substituted delegate or
delegates shall be equally bound with the former,
to obey and execute our expressed instructions.
The following Letter from Messrs. Doran and
English was read, and on motion was unanimously
ordered to be incorporated with the proceedings and
To the Democratic Citizens of the First Con-
Whereas some persons,intending no doubt to in-
jure us in the opinion of the Democratic delegates,
and thereby to secure in opposition to the wishes of
the Democratic party of the County,the nomination
for Congress of a man residing out of the first Con-
gressional District, who will not, or cannot, disavow
his political connection with Jesse R. Burden, and
his friendship for the Bank of the United States,
have asserted that in 'case either of us should be
nominated for Congress by the Democratic Delega-
tion, the other would not abide by the nomination,
beg ltave therefore to say that such assertion is en-
tirely without foundation,and, in our opinion,calcu-
lated to distract the party, as we are determined to
abide by the nomination of the Delegation, and to
use our best exertions to promote the election of
the Candidate who may be regularly nominated.
JOSEPH M. DORAN,
Southwark, July 30th 1836.
On motion, it was Resolved, That the tickets
given this evening at the election for delegates, to-
gether with the tally papers and certificate of the
tellers and judges, be carefully collected, sealed up
by them, and deposited with the Secretaries to be
Kept by them, to answer any cavil that may be rais-
ed in the County Delegation touching the said elec-
tion, which resolution was carried into effect in the
presence of the meeting.
At 20 minutes past 9 o'clock the meeting ad-
journed, having previously ordered the publication
of the proceedings.

Mouitt, Jtuly IA.-On gaturdiy, the first
achment of the emigrating Creeks arrived here
rom Montgomery, on their way to Arkansas. They
were brought down the river in four barges, towed
by the steamboats Lewis Cass and Meridan. The
nearest estimate we can get at from authentic sour-
ces, of the number of men, women and children,
nakes it a little more than 2400 They are under
the charge of Licut. Barry of the U. S. Army, and
were escorted by the Alabama Artillery, Capt. Mil-
ton, one of the Mobile volunteer companies.
The Indians were landed below the city, to give
them an opportunity for preparing their food, and
arranging their little bundles for the long, tedious
and gloomy journey that is before them. They
were then re-embarked in the afternoon, and start-
ed onward towards the Mississippi.
This party is composed of the hostile Indians
and their families, except those identified as having
been concerned in the murders and outrages;ofthese,
a considerable number have been delivered over to
the civil authorities of this state and Georgia were
demanded of the military.
Among those who were here, we saw the aged
chief Nea-Mathla-the warrior of nearly ninety
years-the same lofty, heroic old man, more bowed
in years, but still unsubdued in spirit, who fought
against General Jackson in the old Seminole cam-
paign, and would not deliver himself to any but the
General himself, the Great Chief of the Whites,"
He is a noble specimen of the savage; and after
warring for nearly one hundred yearswith undying
courage against that destiny which has been de-
stroying his race, he goes with a head whitened by
so many winters, but still erect, and an eye dimmed
indeed, but still piercing and commanding, to lead
the remnants of his scattered people in the depths of
