and the entry of other lands in lieu thereof, in quar-
ter asetiwnsand in any part of the respective States,
Wae pas,.d by the following vote; the yeas and
ihys having been ordered on the call of Mr. Ew-

States; which motion, aftera~brief discussion, was

4deddedin the negative.
.* -The PubiUc Lands.
POnmotion of Mr. Walker, the previous Orders
wero postponed, and the Senate proceeded to the
farther consideration ,of the bill prohibiting the sales
of the public lands, except to actual settlers, and in
limited qamnities.. The question being on a motion
- of M. Cay to reconsider Mr. Morris's amendment,
reuirig thtat land which had been ten yearsin the
' rket should W 1 sold a 76 cents;'less than ten,
and more than five years, at $1; and all other lands

.., Th motion to reconsider was carried in the affir-
. ative: Ayes 19, Oes 14.
Mr. Moris, on the suggestion of Mr. Benton,
added to his amendment the proviso, that no person
ahold nter more than a quarter section at a re-
ducd price. .
-.The question was then taken on the amendment
of Mr. Morris, and decided as follows:

and also that the resolution offered by Mr. Benton,
and referred to the committee on Public Lands, be
referred to the committee on Finance.
Mr. Benton thought this a singular movement af-
ter the committee on Public Lands had rep ,rted a
bill, three or four days before. It appeared to him
to be a joke which he did not understand. He ho-
ped the subject would not be taken from the Public
Lands and sent to a committee of which he was a
On motion of Mr. Walker, the resolution of Mr.
SBenton was read. It requires the committee to
send for persons and papers, and examine witnesses
by commission or otherwise.
Mr. Walker then said that to have acted on this
resolution would have prevented any legislation on
the subject of the public lands. He had voted
With the greatest reluctance for the reference of the *
resolution to the Committee on the Public Lands,
and he hoped they would now bedischarged from it.
SMr. Benton complained of the lapse of time since
the resolution was adopted. It was adopted on the
11th, and this was the 21st. Time had not gone
backwards. He thought it strange that the com-
mit:ee should desire to send this to a committee of
which he was a member. How would this tell in
. the newspapers?
SMr. King of Ala. said, had he been present he
would have opposed this resolution. He was not
desirous to press the sending of this to the Comm.t-
tee on Finance, but was willing that the committee

preceding .or' present session, from their per diem
compensation, when absent in attendance. on the
Supreme Court of the United States, or the courts
in adjacent States or elsewhere, on their own pri-
vate business.
To which amendment Mr. Yell offered the fbl-
lowing amendment: .
S"And that said committee be instructed to in-
quire into the expediency of providing by law for
reducing the compensation allowed to members of
Congress to six dollars per diem ; and also into the
expediency of providing by law for the removal of
the Seat of Government of the United States to
some point on the Ohio or Mississippi river, on or
before the first day ofjanuary, 1840."
'The subject was debated, when, the-hour having-
elapsed, the Chair announced the private Orders of
the Day.

House adjourned. o p

of Wertburgh, praying that Papists may not be ad.

Roman creed, and praying for a committee to ex-

Mr. Clay stated that Congress had no power to
act on parts of the petition, but as there was power
to act on the naturalization laws, he moved the re-
ference to the Committee on the Judiciary.
Mr. Benton, in reference to the memorial referred
to by the Senator from Ohio, said if that memorial
had been presented, he would not have thrown any
obstacle in the way of the parliamentary course.-
He intended to move that the memorial be referred
to the Committee on the Judiciary, with insiruc-
tions to send for persons, and that the expenses be
paid out of the contingent fund ofthe Senate.
Mr. Waoker moved that the committee on Public
Lands be discharged from the consideration of the

Mr. Ewing then submitted his project and-moved
to- amend the Bill by inserting it after the second
section. The project prohibi led any one from pur-
chasing more than -- number of acres, the pur-
chaser to live on the land two out of three years,'on
pain of forfeiture of land and purchase money/and
making other provisions, by Way of securing the in-
teresta of the settlers.
Some amendments were offered by Mr. Walker,
of minor importance, and were agreed to without
discussion, and one or-two others were laid on the
table-and ordered to- be printed.I
SThe bill as amended, was ordered to be printed,

Mr. Ely Moore asked the House, by general

of taking up the bill No, 427, being a bill to explaii
and amend the act for the relief of sufferers by the

The bill merely provided for the correction of an er-

were sincere in proposilg a truce ?
Aa0woer--I ,btive they were per&lW4y sincere.
I will iaraikjin -reference to that question thai
there Was nothing .ie mahnnaer or matter of the
interview which I bhad with the Indians on the
Ouithlatooehpe, tojyie me the n_.es suspicion
of their sincerity. There seemed to' b a ec uliai
sadness over them,a -.if thoughtful of the inisfor-
tunesof their tibe, indicating that farther hostilities
on their part.was hopeless. I thought them sincere
and all who were present entirely concurred with
me, and I am the more inclined to continue in that;
belief from SeveraL considerations.
SAlthough wars among Indian tribes are some-
timesof very long duration, it is seldom that active
warlike movements-among them continue for any
length of time. With tribes at war there may be
years of cessation of hostilities, wh. n a war party,
s it is called, isgot up with considerable form lity,
with a feagt and a war d.Lnce. The p.irty will the,
make what they call-a-trike at the enemy-return
from the expedition, and if successful, colebrntd
their success with a scalp dance. But this kind oi
warcannot be carried on against the whites, as in
a war wiVth them the Indians are compelled to cm *
body themselves, -which makes it difficult far tht:mn
to obtain -supplies'of ammuniiion, provisions and
clothing. In Florida the enemy had been so etn.
bodied for a*ekgthf time. They had seine spe-
cial cause. forthie war which had at this time, in
part, been removed, especially by the conduct o01
Asstla (or Powell) near to Fortt King; and the
language used by him in council-" L am satified"
-referred to the removal of one those causes.
I have heard f other similar instances. The ni-
dians had been -successful in destroying Major
D ide and his command, and theyhad kill -d mftny
more than they had lost. Gen. Gaines having
taken a position in their neighborhood which they
had found it impossible to move, .they must hav-
seen that they could not in futue procure from
above a supply of -provisions consisting of caule,
which they had before drawn from thence. The
opinion among them that this position was likely
to be perrhmanent,'was calculated to break diwnr
their spirit. I have always believed, also, that the
Indians were informed of the movement of Getn.
Clinch from Fort Drane, on-the 5Sh of March, and
they therefore saw additional reasons to suppose
that they could not maintain themselves i -the
country under the circumstances, and in taking
council on the evening of the 5th, they concluded-to
make overtures ,of peace. I have never doubted
that they would have acceptedfermns,such as would
have been worthy of this great nation to dictatetu
them, had there been authority there-tn c.nncludI a

A letter of Gen. Scott dated at Cehinmbus, Ge&,
addressed to the Secretary of WVar. In speaking
of the (then) contemplated summer campaign 01,
Gen. Cafl, Gtn. S. says he wishes him the most ,
hearty success, but fears that-sicknebu and disease,
together with the absence of the proper supplies
will prevent' him operating with effi.ct. The Se-
minoles are not formidable in number; I do not be-.
lieve the whole force an the 'nation, including In-'
diansand negroes, exceeds 1200, and I do not
hinil that more than 500 have been embodied at
many one time. He says that the strength of
the nation lies in the extent and frightful character
of their country which abounds with hammock*
and swamps that are pre-occupied by the enemy
from wheiice they operate much to our disadvan.
tage. Not Wnayne, or any other of the greatest In-
dians fighters that ever lived in our- country could
undertake to say that he would conquer those Indi-
ans in a single season.
TheGineial says that every soldierwhogoes
into Flo. ida should be entitled to at least I160O acres
of land ('not Florida lands for that would be a
fraud f') an4d ench officer to at least three months,
pay in advance, gratuitous; as there is but little
honor or glory to be gained by sacrificing health,
comfort, &c. in a wilden.-,ss like that dtof Florida. -
Two letters from the Secritary of War toAGene-
ral Scott, in reference to the Seminole War were
read ; and one from Captain Harding to Governor
Clay, in reference toihe Arms, &c. in the -Arsenal
SIt Mount "Vernon,-(Ala.) stating that theie wete
10,000 fist rate muskets and Iffpieces of ordnance-
compiete, which, said Ge.n-'ral Scott, "will show"
how tihe 0'iabnaa Wtoerw were supplied with arms
and accoutrements, and ready for the field by the
6th of June."" _
The deposition of Governor Schley, of Georgia,
was then read. TheGovernotr remarks uponp the
coincidence of General Scott at Savannah, Jesup
at Augusta, and himself at Miledgeville--haviig-
no previo 's communications upon the subjeet,in
suggesting the same plan of campaign. His viewa
of General Jesup's treatment towards Genemeal
-Scott are clearly defined, and places the conduct of
the Quarter Master General in a very unenviable
light. Governor Schley is of opinion that fewer
murders would have been committed, and a 4qes
number of'the hostile Creeks escaped into Florida,
had Jesup adhered to the original plan of campaign,
by which both Generais were to operate simultase-
ously; but Jesup-wai restless lest all-the:hoior
of closing the War would be General Scott's,-amid
as he (Jesup) had -the Indians in his immediate
neighborhood, he thought by striking an immediate
blow at them he could run away with the honbr,
himselt,-he did act, the friendly Creek lhdians
captured the most formidable band of the hostiles,
and the War was closed. General'Scott Was re-.
called to atone for hisi delay in operating earlier,
and Mr. Quarter Master Generali T. -S. Jesup,
comiahder of the Southern Amy,4is :*
SA letter from General Jesup to" GoVernor-bhiley,
Was then read to the Court: This letter cOrr-
plained of Governor Sehley's having written ;tothe
President of the Uilited States, in cQtisequenoe of
his (Sehley,) not hearing from JewuD in reply. to a
.leltdir- Cted by the Go-ernor to-iiiaskitg for-cer-
tain information. The President directs comnmuf-
catio4 toJesup upow the subject- whereat iJesup
takes fire-looks at his file-and lo t there beholds
the. letter which he had forgot to selgj. reply to
G^>v. Sheey's, and xbue-Wa. f Mijm.
other, and then, when it could be of no use, sends
itto him. -
' General Sc6tt said that he should argue, at the-
proper time, this peculiar faihlgof Gen. Jsup,
and would prove that: he is habituated to writing
letters and placing "hemn on -te -as though copies
bad acttllly -bern 'sent to tihofebr whom t dy
were intended. -
The Judge Advocate continued -the reading of
the deposition and when finished, General Scott
presented a letter from. Gen. Woodward which
contained evidence of the determination of Gen.
Jesup to disregard the pledge to co-operate'with
Gen. Scott, and of his having acted in disobedience
to orders. '
A letter from the Hon. W. C.'Dawaon, M. C.
who commanded a detachment of volunteers and
artillery on board of the steamboat which was eta-
tioned on the Outhracoochee, enclosing his deposi-
tion, was read. His answers are confirmatory ot
what has preceded, viz: the exoneration of Gen.
'Scott fromkunnecessary delay in preparing to ope-
rate against the Creek Indians, and which the pub,
lie will remember was the only charge against Ge-
neral Scott connected with the Creek matter.
G'.n. Scott then offered to the Court another pa- -
per signed by Col. Lane (then Lfeiutenant,) forawer-
ly, and at that time anm aid to Gen. Jesup, which
was evidently the handy work of both, pretending
to be an abstract of the correspondence between
Gen. Jesup and others in reference to the Creek
war. Gen. Scott Said he woald offer it in evidence

(Capt. AteCall's testimny continued.)
Question by the Court.-What was the number
of Indians that invested Camp Izard on the 29th of
Feb'uaryand bow many attacks were made onsaid
Camp ?I
Answer.-T-he number on the morning of the
29th was in my opinion between 1200 and 1500, in-
cluding negroes, jutjging from the extent of ground
covered-their fire and war whoop. On the morn-
ing of the 3d their number, al tho' apparently not so
numerous as on the 29t.h, were greater than at any-
subsequent period. The Indians made five or
six attacks, and occasionally, both during day and
night, a few shots were fired into the camp by strag-
By the Court-No sortie was made upon the en-
emy ; what reason did Gen. Gaines assign for not
making a sortie ?
Answer.-He did not explain to me his reasons,
but my impression is that it would not have result-
cd in any important advantage to cur side.
By the Court.-Did no officer during the siege
suggest the propriety of a sortie ?'
Answer.-I did not hear any officer suggest a
sortie; nor do I know that any officer differed with
the General upon that point.
By the Court.-Whiat is your opinion ofthe forces
being able to driveithe Indians if a sortie had been
Answer.--I hawve not the smallest doubt they
could have driven them off, but the nature of the
ground was such--the hammocks being very dense
and extremely di'lcult of access to troops, the In-
-dians who were' l)ing concealed would have been
e enabled deliver their fire, and owing to their sw-
perior celerity and knowledge of the ground, pass-
cd through the hammock and crossed the river be-
fore our troops could have come up with them.
Their facilities for crossing being great, and the
troops without thq means of following them.
General Gtintas ht.re aroseand said that be would
submit a question in reference to a subject which
hadbeen agitated in the public journals throughout
'.he North, ahd bethought it was due to himself, at
this time, to allude to it. He said he had been
charged[withimeeting the enemy only behind breast-
works, and by this witness he would show that he
h>d f-,ught them for two days upon theriver banks,
nad compelled them to retire from the conflict.
He saia that suffiipnt evidence had already been
adduced to the Court to prove the impropriety ot
his m-rking a soltie from Camp Izird after the
pledge' heIh ,d mnde to Gereral Clinch, or the corm-
manding officer at Fort Drane, that he would not.
do so.
By Ger. Gaines-What part of the force of Gen.
Gaines was out of the limits of Camp Izird on the
29th of February, and % ere not several, companies
occasionally on lthe river engaged with the enemy
prior to the 6th of March?
Answer-There. was one company out pf the
limits of the breast work on the 29bLh of Februa-
ryv, and several companies were ei gaged in firing
't the Indians across the river prior to the 6th of
March. -
Gen. Gaines preceded the next question with a
few remarks in reference to the opportunities which
had been enjyWsd by Capt. McCall during a long
residence in the Indian countries, in making himself
acquainted with the topography of those parts and
the habits and cUstoms ofthe Indians while engaged
in travel, or Nith an enemy. Hesaid that theoffi-
eer who was deputed to relieve him in the command
in Florida, had stated in an officiall communication
that he did notbelieve that more tham 500 Indians
had at any time been embodied since the opening
of the war. That officer acknowledges thai he had
met no O irtiescor.sisting of more than 50or 60, and
he pretends to judge of the number who had attack-
ed the commar.d'at Camp Iz.rd from the appear.
ance of the neighboring ground. Gen., Gaines
said' that-it wft-well known tosome of the mem-
bees ofthe court, that large bodies of Indians have
travelled in tit war from one post to another
witlirontIeviif-tg nd 'them any evidence of their
strength-this be said wtas done by the Indians
treading in the print-which had been made by their
leader, and the only way the enemy could judge
of the opposing force was by the depth of the
print. ,
By Gen.'taines.-What is your opinion as to
the practicability of ascertaining a week or two
weeks after a' batte, the number of Indians engag-
ed in it ; or the number encamped at any one point;
and do the Indians leave as much evidence of their
numbers in canip as the whites ?
Answer.-I think it would be impossible a week
Or two weeks after a battle to ascertain by th' signs
commonly left by Indians, what number had been
on the battle ground. The principal object in In-
dians encampint in times of war being to conceal
their numbers, it would be extremely difficult, per.
haps impossible, to make even a tolerable guess of
the numbers which occupied an encampment unless

they had occupied it for a great length of time. Af-
ter leaving an encampment the Indians do not leave
-my thing like as much evidence of their numbers
as the whites usually leave.
General Gaines here referred to a portion of the
testimony of Captain Thistlet It will be remem-
bered by your readers that the Captain stated to
the court that he had never heard of General Gaines
until he saw him in Florida; and never knew dfany
dissatisfaction expressed by the Volunteers when
it was rendered uncertain whether Generhl Gaines
could accompany them to the scene of action in
Florida. Theb-General said he was in hopes that
Captain Thistle for his own sake would reflect again
upon the subject and correct that part of his terti-
mony, inasmuch as the Captain had gene to Florida
from New Orletis in the same steamboat, and on the
passage thither had frequently conversed with the
same General $aines, of whom "he had never
heard until he stw him in Florida." In order how-
ever to settle tie matter, General (Saines said he
would propose alquestion teCaptain McCall, which
would be satisftory to the court upon that point.
By General (aines.-What were the sentiments
and feelings :of the Louisiana Volunteers as ex-
pressed by them: on board the steamer Watchman,
at Pehsacola, relative to General Gaines continuing
in command ?
Answer..-Ornhe arrival of the steamboat Watch-
man at Pensacola, on the i6th of Febru ry, it was
ascetained thatthe steamer Merchant, with a bat-
talion of Louisiana Volunteers, under the immedi-
ate command eoColonel Smith, had sailed the day
before for Tampa Bay. On landing at Pensacola,
General Gaines received the letter of the Adjutant
General, notifying him that General Scott had been
ordered to Flori4a, and directing General Gaines to
await for further orders at New Orleans. On re-
ceiviig this letter;General Gaines remarked to me
that he would go with great readiness wherever his
services might e moit useful to his: country, and
said he thought he should return to New Orleans.
I left him immediately to attend to some duties.-
When the troops learned the purport of the letter,
many of the volunteers collected around me, and
inquired if theGeneral intended -to proceed or re-
turn-I replied thAt I believed he would return.-
They expressed in strong terms treir regret at this
infr-rmation, and the general opinion, s ,far as 1

ie ground to detetrmnine len. Gaities to go to Ptir
King? ,0: .
Answer--W bile the party who had been detailed
for the purpose were collecting the bodiesfor burial,
Gent. Gainus expressed to me his anxiety to know
where the enemy was, not having met him as we
expected on our mirch to that point, and his desire
te know of the situation of Gen. Clinch. He stated
to me that the surest means of acquiring this infor
mation was to proceed to Fort King, but he ex-
pressed an unwillingness to draw any supplies from
that post, which perhaps might he slender. I then
remarked, that I was informed that morning by the
Senior Quarter-Master, Capt. Shannon, he had
been notified that large supplies had been ordered
to Fort.King.' The'General. expressed satisfaction
at this, and immediately sent for the Quarter-
Mus e., who produced a leUer from the Quarter-
Master-General's office, datedl 19th January, stating
that a l.:rge supply of provisions had been ordered
from New Yorkl to Fort King, and 30,000 rations
to St. Augustine. On receiving this information
Gen.' Gaines expressed his determination to pro,
ceed forthwith to Fort King, and the order fora
march was given the moment the funeral rites were
By Gen. Gaines-On his arrival at Fort King,
not finding the provisions and troops he expected,
what plan of operations did Gen. Gaines adopt?
Anawer.-Oo arriving at Port King and finding
the garrison consisted of only one company of ar-
tilery and a small supply of provisions, which
would only -afford him two days' rations, he told me
in tWe course of conversation that it was his deter-
mination to return to ForC Prooke, where he had
supplies, and should he not find the enemy on the
route thiher, he would then operate in the direction
of Tolopchopko, on Pease's Creek, to intercept the
retreatofthe Indians towards the Everglades, should
he be driven in that direction by the troops opera-
ting above.
SBy Gen. Gaines.-Was it the intention of Gen.
Gaines to make v. sortie in the event of hearing Gen.
Clinch's or Col Lindsay'sguns?
Answer.-The General observed several times
at Camp Izard that he should not be surprised to
hear Col. Lindsay's guns from the other side of the
river, and if he did he would c:oss the river and
march to his aid, or if the Indians engaged Genera!
Clinch on his advance he would march out and app-
port him.

FREDERICK, Md. Jan. 18, 1837.
The court went into session at the usual huur,
and continued for a length of time tlhis morning in
taking down the ttuimony of Cap-. Thistle ; in
the course of which he stated that he never thought
the Indians were sincere in their proposition for
peace. Gen. Gaines then submitted the following
r The witness has stated that he did not believe
that the Indiai.s were sincere in thpir professions on
the 5 h and 6th of March, 1836, in suteing for peace,
aind yet, after the conference he asked, and obtain-
ed permission to go out ot theec amp with six of his
men: the witness will now state whether hlie would
have considered it prudent or safe in going from the
Camp with six men, unless lie hAid'pldced confidence
in the sincerity of the Indian's overtures.
Answer-I am ready to answer that.-I did
consider it safe. I consider myself a first rate
woodsnman, and I have spent much time with the
Indians, and I have done a great deal of trading
with them, and know them as well as any man,
and I think I am capAble of keeping myself con-
cealed, if I did not wish to come in contact with
Gen. Gaines observed that he was perfectly sat-'
isfi-d with the answer of witn, ss anu had no fur-
therinterrogtitories to suggest to ai. The court
adjourned at one o'clock, having directed the Judge
Advocate to furnish replies to certain interrogato-
ries propounded by Gen. GAines, which would su-
persede the nectssity of the General's searching the
chaotic mass of evidence or accusations, which, he
s tid, was "like looking for the tiniest insect in a
ha3 stack. -Some of the letters are so excessively
long-I wont say they a'e as long as from here to
Michilimackinaw-but'I should think them entire-
Ly too long for any officer to write, who was so ex-
tremely anxious to hasten to the theatre of hostili-
ties without losing a moment.
The General said that he would show to the
court from the evidence placed before thenaby Ge-
neral Scott himself, that his plans and mode.of ope-
ration in Florida, were precisely likehis own, up-
til he (Gen. Scott) discovered that anothe-r officer
to whom; he was bearing the most violent personal
hatred, was in the field, and then he cried aloud to
the department that his plans were all upset, and
-his operations much retarded. I shall alT'e.n-
vince the court that if my movement, did at all, em-
barrass or dalay Gen. Scott's, it was not more than
two days.
The President answered to Gen. Gaines, that
his case would be laid aside unt0tMonday next, in
order to afford Gen. Scott an opportunity to read
his defence, which he proposed to commence to de-
liver tomorrow, but being somewhat enfeebled, he
has deferred it until Friday.
The defence 9f Gen. Scott is of great length, and
you may be sure, the General wil! put forth all his
energes. He handles Blair of the Globe, and his
correspondent, Gen. Jesup, without gloves.-
Among other things, he says-"My instructions
directed me to exact from the Seminoles uncondi-

tional submission-there was to be no peace-no
truce. Removal, unqualified removal, west of the
Mississippi, was to be the basis of any negotiation
with these Indians."
In another place he says--" It is my misfortune
sir, not to possess the confidence of the Constitu-
tional Commander-in-Chief of the Army and Navy
of the United States."!'
EDUCATION is a companion which no misfortune
can depress-no crime destroy-no enemy can alie-
nate or enslave. At home afriend-in company an
introduce ion-in solitude a consolatioi-and in so-
ciety an ornament.
Howard street Flour.-The transactions from
stores are confined to hmitcd lots. Prics have ad-
vanced. We quote the store price at $10,50 a 10

Ci'y Mills Flour.-Sales of standard at $10,25,
and of extra at $10,50..
Wheat.-Notwithistanding the heavy sales re-
ported last week, the market has not only maintain-

Now look at the names of the Expungers-or as,
in contempt of their proceeding, they were called
by Mr. C lay, the "Black Knights"--black with
their own infamy.

48.-an absolute majonty of/four.
The expunging process was voted by 24 Sena-

position standing until the 4th Ma ch next, when
the dishonored Senate will cease to sit.

FROM MEXICO AND TEXAS the accounts are such.
as tdarrest the attrndfion of Americans.
The ieturn from thas country of the late Mexican
Minister, Gorostiza, seems to hare been the occasion
for a like return of our Minister, Mr. Ellis, from
Mexico-and so far asthis may be a mere diploma-
tic form, it would not be very important-but from
the spirit in which Mr. Gorostiza left, this country,
and the fermentation existing in Mexico, the matter
becomes more significant.
If in this juncture, contrary to the wise, just, and
cautious policy inculcated in the late message of the
President of the United States on the subject of
Texas, Congress should take any steps towards
recognizing, or indirectly aiding, the independence
of that revolted country, the inevitable consequence,
as it seems to us, would be a war with Mexico-
and of the nature of that war, -and its certainly dis-
astrous results to our commerce, by means of the
freebooters of world at peace, who under the
Mexican flag and commissions would capture,-
sink, burn, and destroy,-- we have on former oc-
'casions express. d our opinion.
According to a letter from New Orleans, of the
16th inst., published in'the Courier & Enquirer,
Gen. Bravo had resumed the command of the forces
destined to act against Texas, on the condition of
their being adequately supplied. His actual num-.
hers Were estimated at 4,000.

over which he had no coni rol."
DEATH O JUDOGE HorFMaN.-This eminent
lawyer died yesterday, in his 71st year. On the
fact of his death being announced tothp only Courts
setting, the Special Sessions, and the Court of Com -'
mon Pleas-bot'were immediately adjourned, in
token of respect for a deceased brother. The fol-
lowing is the order made in the Court of Sessions.
The District Attorney, T. Phenix, Esq. having
announced to this Court the death of the Honora-
ble Josiah Ogden Hoffman-it is ordered by this
Court, as a tribute of respect to his great law
learning-to the able and distinguiekhed abilities,
with which he discharged his official duties as At-
torney General of this State, aii Retordei of the
city of New Yofk, and as an Associate. Judge of
the Superior Court, and to his personal worth, that

ther directs that this order be published in the pub-

.'he Court then adjourned till Friday.
A very numerous meeting of the Bar was held at
the City Hall this morning, at which resolutions of
respect for the memory, and regret at the death, of
Judge Hoffman, were passed. Chief Justice Jones,
assisted by the Judges of all the other courts, pre,

Aa& to all practical effects, they are the same.
there any man in this House who does not
kno* that the President elect could not have been
chosen bultby the direct influence and interference
of the President ? Lt no man say there is no proof
of this interference. Iuidependent of the facts sta-
led by my friend from Tennessee, (Mr. Peyton) and
the published letters, toasts, &c., of the President
' hilqet1, l will now call the attention of this House
m iad of'this country, to some facts, upon which I
wsu4defyany worn jury of freemen on earth to
bring in a- verdict of" not goil.y." 1 will introduce -
a witness against whom hirelings have poured out
their miligz.ity and calumwy, but whose veracity
Saind private integrity no mar dare impeach. I will
S.give the language of the distinguished Senator from
Tennesee. (Judge -. white ) as at is published in his

speech at Inoxville last summer. WhenthePresi-
dent-*as on a visit toTen., in the summer of 1834,
and "and after the rise of the State convention, ma-
ny members wished to nominate me for the Presi-
dency, but abandoned the.attempt after they un-
derstood that. it would incur the PreSident's displea-
sure. On Mis jowrne to Washington the President
conversed freefy with some of my friends, ano re-
monstrated against any attempt to nominate me;-
said there must be a national convention, and Mr.
Van Buren ought to be nominated for the Presiden-
cy, and Ifob the Vice Presidency, mad, when his
eight yearswere expired, that I was young enough
then to be taken up as President.". *
"After I gave my consent to thu People to run, and
before the meeting of the Bflhimore Convention, I
was repeatedly forewarnmed what I night expect if
my name was not withdrawn,' &c.
Such are the unvarnished facts of the case. And
who is there,bold enotsgh to deny that the President
has interfered'! Sir! the facts are beyond the pos-
sibility of derial,thathe has openly interfered, and
used his power and authority to noahinate his suc-
cessor, and o do-it by barg. ia and arrangement.-
Every paltry intrigue and profligate proposition
have been used and employed toeffect this purpose.
The chief offices of the Republic have been bartered
away, and the President, through the tremendous,
power and patronage of his position, has called upa
betrayed country to receive its rulers from the hands
of a master. ,

JUDOG DANA'S SPzcH.--The. folloUwing is the
speech,or part of the speech of Mr.SenatorDana, on
.the expunging resolution: .
6 Andrew Jacksos has no equal; his whole life
isa miracl-. See him in youth, a fatherlesso, riend.-
less, petty less -boy, the son of a foreigner, a stran-
ger in a strange land. Examine him in every stage
of his existence, and we are impelled toexclaim,
wanderfl man! reared by Providence to guide the
destinies of his country, and to exhibit the persec-
tion atid moral grandeur of human naatre. I am'
not- clear, sir, but it wad necessary to the perfection
of his character that he was thus violently assailed
and condem red by this resolution."
'nI said, sir, that Andrew Jpoxksun sood alone.

sovereigns of the earth. Look where you will, and
you look in vain. Go to the records of the rutighte

As a fitting conclusion, take the close of Sensator
pBenton's latest speech op "Expunction,"
Sir," said Mr. Benton, "I think it right, in ap-
proaching the termination of this great question, to

his civil administration, replete with scenes which
have called into action o t t so many and such variwo
passions of the human heart, and which has given
to native sagacity so many victories -over praoctised
politicians, will require the profound, lumieous and
philosophical-conoep ions of a Livy, a Plutarch, or
a Sallust. This history is not to be written in our
d'ly. The cotemi oraures of sueh events are -not the
hands to describe them. Timne must first do its of-
fice, developenfsequenrces, and canonize ill that
is sacred to honor, patriotism arnd glory. In after
ages the historic genius of our America shall pro-I
duce the writers which the subject demands,-men
tar removed from the contests of this who will
know how to estimate this great epoch, and hiow to
acquire mW, immortality for their own names by
painting, with a master's hand, the immotal events
of the Patriot President's life."1

CONGRESS.--In the Senate, on Xonday, Mr.
Wright, front the Committee on Finance, reported
against the petition from the Board of Trade in
New York, in favor of a U. S. Bank.
On motion of Mr. Benton, the Fortification bill,
the Arnmory bill, and the bill to increase thie Army,
were made the orders of the dtay for Thursday
The Senate then proceeded to the special Order of
the D aty, which was the bill to confine the sale of the,
public lands toactual settlersonly.
Mr. Walker, chairman of the Committee on the
Public Lands, who has charge of the bill expressed
his approbatioSf an amendment offered on Satur- h
day by Mr. Ewing.
Mr.- Tipton then moved an amendment, introdu-
cing the principle of graduation, and providing that
land remaining unsold for ten years should be sold
for one dollar an acre ; -and if remaining for fifteen
years, at seventy-five cents the aere, with a proviso
that, not more than t60 acres be sold to any one 1
man ; on which hp asked the yeas and nays ; and
they were ordered by the Seabte.
Mr. Ewing, thinking this a fit opportunity to go
into the general prineipit 5 of the bill, and the sub-
ject of the public hands generally, adda-essed the
Senate in a speech which, with his consent, was
interrupted by a motion (or adjournment. The
motion, having been suspended for some previous
motion for the printing of documents, prevailed.
The Senate then adjourned.
g In the House of Representatwes the petitions hay.
ing been got through, the Speaker announced that
-the memorial presented by Ma. Cuslhing, respecting
the quarantine and the Sound dues at Elsin-eur, was
in order. -Mr. Adams claimed that the unfinished
business respecting petitions (for abolition of alve-

ry in the District of Columbia) was the proper or-
der. The Speaker decided against him, a debate
ensued. and an anneal from the Chair. The House.

question in another form, and therefore out of-

In my former number I endeavored to impart to
the aspirant after culinary happiness, some idea of
the more striking and ostensible characteristics of
theJndividual Black Fish : the soft, deep, mazy
eye ; the luxurious-and pouting lips; the peculiar
thickness across the. lower dorsal fin; the pomegra-
nate gillsand the blackness of the skin, which should
designate-theobject of his choice.
The scene is in one of our own markets: the con-
tract is closed,; the fish found to weigh four pounds
and a half; scaled; op. ned in front about three
inches; drawn; and cleansed by one, andsee that
it is not more than one, rapid immersion in pure wa,.
ter; and Mr. Fishmonger, not being one of the A[-
derman's Long Island friends, takes me Up incon-
tinently a clumsy sail-needle, and is upon thepoint
of ruining all our hopes, by inserting a tarred string
through the lower j iw. Had he accomplished this,
vain were all our subsequent exertions I Not all the
waters of the multitudinous seas, nor all the spicy
perfumes of Araby the blest," could have remor-
ed, however they might possibly overwhelm, the
effects ofhis incaution. Latterly indeed some of our
marketmen have provided themselves with white
strings purposely for this fish, which is a great ina-
provement upon past usage, but far better is it if
your fi-h can be brought-home without any string,
in a nice napkin, and laid folded in the covering u n-
bruised, tupon your white dresser table, in the light
and cheerful kitchen, where I will now suppose it
to be.

SHERMITAGE, Sept. 4, 1836. a
Sir-I have the. honor to acknowledge the re- C
ceipt ofyour letter of the 4th of July last, which r
has been forwarded to me by Gen. Samuel .Houston,
under cover of one from him, transmitted by an ex-
pressfrom Gen. Gaines, who is in command of the m
U. States forces on the Texan frAntier. Thegreat t
effect of these communications appears to be to put
an end to thediiasters which necessarily attend the c
civil war now raging in Texas, and askingthe inter- P
position of the United States in furthering so hu -
mane and desirable a purpose. That "any well-in- c
tended effort of yours in aid of this object should i
have been defeated, is calculated to excite the regret
of all wo justly appreciate, the blessings of peace, b
and who take an.ihterest-in the causes which con-,
tribute to the prosperity of Mexico in her domestic
-r well as her foreign relations. .
The Government of the United States is ever
-anxiousto culivate peace and friendship with all I
nations." But it proceeds on the principle that all
nLtions have the right to alter, amend, or change c
their'own Government, as the sovereign power, the |
People, may direct. In this respect, it never inter- i
tfa with the policy of other Powers, nor can it
permit any on the,,part of others with its internal
policy. Consistently with this principle, whatever
we c.1 do to restore peace between contending na- ,
tions, or remove the causes of misunderstanding, is
cheerfully at the service of those who are willing
to rely upon our good offices as a friend or media-
In reference, however, to the agreementwhich
you, as the representstiveof-M xico, have made
1 with Texas, and which invites the interposition of
the United States, you 41ll at once see that we are
forbidden, by the character of the communications
made to us through the Mexican Minister, trom con-
sidering it, That Government has notified us that,
as long as you -ore a prisoner, no aoct of yours will
be regarded as binding by the Mexican authorities.
Under thesecircumstances, it will bel manifest to
Syou that good faith to Mexico, as well as the gene-
ral principle to which I have adverted, as forming
:the basis of our intercourse with all foreign Powers,
make it impossible for me -to take any step like
that you have anticipated. If, however, Mexico
should signify her willingness to avail herself of our
good offices ip bringing about the desirable result
you have described, nothing could give me more
pleasure than to devote my best services to it. To
be instrumental in terminating the evils ot civil war,
and in substituting in their stead the blessings of
Space, is a divine privilege. Every Government,
and the people of alt countries, should feel it their
Highest happiness to enjoy an opportunity of thus
manifesting their love for each other, and their in-
terest in the general principles which apply to them
all as members of the common family of man.
Your letter and that of General H.ouston, Corn-
mand4r-in-.Obief 6f the Texan army, will be made
* the basis of an early interview with the Mexican
Minister, at Washington. They will hasten my
return to Washington, to which place I will set out
in a few days, expecting to reach it by the 1st of
October., In the mean time, I hope Mexico and
STexas, feeling that war is the greatest of calamities,
' will pause before another campaign is undertaken,
and can add to the number of those scenes of blood-
shedl which have already marked the progress of
their contest, and have given so much pain to their
Christian friends throughout the world.
This is sentunder cover to General Houston, who
d will give it a safe conveyance to you.-,

Yet, to a disinterested observer, there are facts
that-after all allowance for. visionary schemes,

Among these facts may be quoted some now be-
fore us in the Toledo Gazette, of 7th January. But
first of Toledo. It is a frontier town of Michigan,
on the .Itfawtee, vhich, in 1834, was a wilderness,
and now numbers a population of 2,000 souls,
with extensive warehouses, forty.one stores, and
six hotels, besides, dwelling houses. The inhabi-
tants o tlhis new place have mainly, from their own
means, constructed a railroad 33 miles in length, to
Adrian, which is now ready for travel. The Chi-
cago American having'pit fohh a statement of the
prosperous commerce of that thriving place, and of
the rapid ratio of its increase, challenged the Union
forta parallel. The substance of the Chicagostate-
ment is contained in the table annexed.

The Toedo Gazette takes up the chAllenge,,and
thus replies to it:,
Toledo dates its birth as a town in June, 1834:
At that period,: the spaee occupied by its present
site, with the exception of one or two small clear-
ings, was a dense forest. Its population scarcely
amouttinted 3to 50. Not a, steamboat of the larger
class entered the Maumee river that year, except
the Daniel Websfer, which came in on her last trip
in November.- But few steamboats or schooners

That militia as a force in tl]e field, the most ex-
pensive in money, most wasteful of human life, and

nearly german to dur own. .
[From the Ontario Repository 49 Freeman.)
TH SERvICEZ-IN FLORIDA.-In another column
vill be found some interesting passagess relating to
he nature of the military service in Florida.
SEvery thing connected with the military service
of the country, from the Revolution down to the
present day, and especially our Indian wars, seems
o us to demonstrate beyond all pretence of denial
or doubt, that tH-ue economy and true humanity, the
interest and honor of the government, as well as the
Safety, comfort and happiness of the people, all corw
bine to recommend an increase of the regular force of
the country.
The passages to which we referand all that has
been communicated respecting the Seminole War,
through any channel, official or private, speak a
language on this subject, which, emphatic as it is,
does but coincide *ith the whole experience of the
country. Every where, on all occasions, the regu-
lar troops have been ajar more economical force than
the militia, and they have suffered far less from the
various unforeseen incidents and hardships of a cam-
paign. .
The objections, in our mind, to the employment
of militia for the usual emergencies of military ser-
vice, arise from considerations of humanity and e-
conomy. Our countrymen are brave enough, as
all our history shows, and our militia have been rea-
dy enough both to fight and to suffer. The diffi-
culty with them is the want of these habits of sub-
ordination, implicit obedience, and perfect method,
which nose but regular troops can acquire, and
which are more important for efficiency, in the du-
ties of a camp, in the labors of a campaign, in pre-
serving comfort, health and moral force, and in trans-
ferring force from one point to another, than they
are in the comparatively simple movements of the
battle field and in fighting. "War," says Johnson,
in his "Falkland Islands," an admirable political
pamphlet, written some seventy years ago-" war
has means of destruction more formidable than the
cannon and the sword. Ot the thousands and tens
of thousands that perished in our late contests with
France and Spain, a very small part ever felt the
stroke of an enemy; the rest languished in tents
and ships, amidst damps and putrefaction; pale,
spiritless, and helpless; gasping and groaning; un-
pitied by men made obdurate by long continuance
of hopeless misery; and were at last whelmed in
pits, or heaved into the ocean, without notice and
without remembrance." Think of the misery, the
waste of life, and the inroads from such causes, in
Florida! Itis only'regular discipline, and the care,
and circumspection, and system, which result from
it, that can afford any reasonable safeguard against
disease, as well as hostile arms.

thne pilntstlwai aderki n the otoe of Ma rgan &
Butler) in Courtlandtfl'teet, and the defendant
was a dlerk or partne1..'Mr. Berg, in the same
street ... .
On the day in quest' "flue defendant went into
the store of Morgan & oler, to borrow some pa-
per, and brought his tw# bull-dogs along with him.
Theplaintiff was in :heSt of getting-the paper for
the defendant, when he-setone of the dogs on him,
which immediately seized hpld of the paper and
tore it to pieces. Little who was much frightened,
begged of the defendant to take off the dog, but in-
stead of doing so, he took hold of Little and conti-
nued to set on the dog until Little made an effort to
climb up on a.desk, in order to escape ; but whilst
he wasinw the actof doing so, the dog seized him by
the fleshy part of the leg, and bit it through until
the animal's tusks met in the wound;and with the
ferocity natural to thib kind of dog, it held hold of
the leg for several minutes before it could be made
to let go. Besides this wound, the dog inflicted sev-
eral others on the plaintiff's leg, and mangled it iz~a
shocking manner. The plaintiff's health was'i n
consequence very seriously impaired, and he was
unable to attend to his business for several weeks ;
besides which, although the wound has healed and
the plaintiff now enjoys good health, ulterior and
fatal consequences mayyet arise from it.
It did not appear thav the defendant was actua-
ted by malice towards the plaintiff in setting the
dog at him, but that he, did it through mere sport,
either recklessly, or not anticipating the consequen-
ces that ensued. I
The Court charged thO Jury that this was a most
aggravated case, and one in which the Jury would
he justified in giving, not only such damages as they
considered the plainfitiff .was entitled to, but also
something more, by wa- of punishing the defen-
dant. Verdict for the plaintiff, $460 damages and

morrhage from the lungs, which threatened a
speedy end to my existence; but with sincere

to acknowledge thle, receipt of yours, and to offer
up to Him who made us, my most sincere and
hearty thanks for his kindness to you, in restoring
you to health again, and with my prayers for your
perfect recovery, and t4at you may long be spared
to superintend the bringing up and educating of
your dear children, and be a comfort to your dear
husband, who has a great solicitude about you, and
great anxiety to speedily return to you, but my
sudden attack has detained him.
I rejoice, my dear "Emily, to find your spirits

I will be completely restored to your health. You

Snot to take cold this winter, and as soon as Dr.

you to pursue it. The digitalis, I fear, is too ex-
citing to the pulse. W
The Doctor tells me I lost from the lungs, and
by the lancet and cupping, upwards of 60 ounces
of blood, which stopped the hemorrhage, without

We have great pleasure in announcing the safe
return to earth o? Mr. Green and his intrepid com-
panions, after a journey of 18 hours. T!is au-
thentic intelligence has been communimcateto us
by a letter from the proprietors of Vauxhall-
gardens, which we cannot do better than sub-
join- .
"141 Fleet street, Monday morning, Nov. 14.-
"The proprietors of Vauxhall beg to btate that
they have received letter fromni Mr. Monck Ma-
son, giving them the ple.ag intelligence that the
balloon landed in perfct efsy at a village called
Weilburg, close tb Coblentz, in Nassau, after- a
most prosperous voyage of 18 hours, having tra-
versed a space of about 480 English miles."
The followingis from a source whichcan be fully
relied on, and affords every particular of this in-
teresting trip yet known in England:-
The ascent took placc at half-past one P. M.,
on Monday. The balloon took at first, as nearly as
possible, the direction of Maidstone, and crossed
the Medway seven miles south of Rochester, at
twelve minutes to three o'clock. At four the aeio-
nauts were two miles south of Canterbury, and
caught the first gIimpse of the sea within a quarter
of an hourafterwards. Theyquitted England pre-
cisely at twelve minutes before five; being then
one mile east of Dover Castle. The passage from
London to Dover was therefore effected in three
hours'and 18 minutes.
At ten minutes to 6,the balloon made the French
coast, about one mile to the east of Calais. The
transit across the water, occupying one hour and
two minutes, appears to have been the quickest
part of the passage. It appears to have passed
close by Cassel, and,withi n'a few miles of Lille,and
by the south of Waterloo and Brussels, and thence
over Namur, where.it arrived at half'past eleven.-
Hitherto the course taken had been east-south-east-
erly ; but at this period a diA'ection due east must
have been taken. This, however, could not be ac-
cuyately ascertained, as at midnight they were in
almost total darkness; nor did the daylight begin
to break till toward 5 o'clock.
At ten minutes past five, the greater altitude
during the whole trip was attained ; measuring 20
inches on the barometer, giving an elevation of two
The balloon crossed the Rhine to the north of
Coblentz at about six o'clock, and effected a per-
fectly easy and safe descent a mile or two beyond
Weilburg, in Nassau, on an estate of the Grand
Duke, who has, it is said (but for this part of the
story we do not vouch,> lent his palace to the ero-
nautic party for the accommodation of themselves
and their balloon.
The exact extent of flthe distance traversed it is
difficult to calculate with nicety, on account of the
different currents which may have occasioned a de-
viation from the direct line, which, supposing it tc
have been precisely kept, would be as nearly 341
miles as possible.
Weilburg is situated equi-distantly from Cob-
lentz, Wisbaden, and Frankfort, at about thirty
miles from each, nearly due north of Wisbaden.
Blanchard being a Frenchman, and Jeffries ar
American, to Messrs. Green, Holland, and Masor
is reserved-the fame of being the first Englishmer
who have crossed the-channel in a balloon ; whilst
they have undoubtedly .the honor of being unri-
valled in the accomplishment of an aeronautic trir
from the Thames to the Rhine, performed in the
space of eighteen hours.
S For this novel experiment in the art of balloon
Stravelling, and for any results important, either tc
* science or locomotion which ma accrue from it
the public are indebted to Mr. Robert Holland,
gentleman who has turned much attention to -the
Subject, and at hose sole expense this enterprise(
t has been carried into effect.
) To Mr. Green, for the adaptation of his practice
s experience and'unrivalled skill to the personal man
f agement.of the balloon,and likewise to the many
I ingeniouslappliances whereby success has been in
I sured, and the perils of this great undertaking ef
r factually overcome, it is impossible to award too
large a measure of applause. J. S."
r We have been favored with- the following lette
, from Mr. Green to a friend in London:
Weilburg, Nov. 8.
Dear Sir,-After a pleasant (but excessively cold
i voyage of 18 hours~we effected our descent near the
i above town which is in the duchy ofNassau, ii
SGermany, distant from London 480 miles. We let
i the English shore about one mile cost of Dover a
I 10 minutes before five on Monday, and after cross
ing the channel to France we passed over about onI
mile to the west of Calais at 10 minutes before siu
the same evening.-In haste forthe post. I remain
dear sir, yours very truly, CHARLES GREEN.
Ta Mr. Edward Spencer."
The following are extracts from Mr. Holland'
letter, dated Weilburg, in Nassau, not many mile
from Frankfort, Wisbaden, and Coblentz :
"Extracts from my .leriel Log Book.
Ascended at half past one from Vauxhall.
Crossed the Medway, seven miles south of Ro
chester, twelve minutes to three.
Two miles south of Canterbury at four.
Saw the sea at a quarter past four.
Left England, one mile east of Dover Castle, 4]
minutesbefore five.
Over France, 10 minutes to six, one mile wes
of Calais. Half past six, drank the health of thb
Masonic brethren assembled at St. John's Lodge

London time. extremely dark.

Five o'clock, symptoms of day-break.
Ten minutes past five, greatest altitude, barome
Ster at 20 inches.
n Descended at half past seven at Weilburg, above
mentioned." -

The above is extracted from a letter from Mr.
Holland to his friend, Mr. Prideaux, of Goldsmith's
Hall, which was sent off immediately on the descent
of the balloon.
We are informed that Mt. Holland has made four
ascents before the. present. He ascended twice
from Cambridge, while an under-graduate there, in
1829, and he accompanied Mr. Green in two of his
previous excursions during this year. Mr. Holland
has been called to the bar; but possessing an ample
fortune hedoes not practise his profession.
The following is a letter from Mr. Monck Mason
to his friend Mr- Gye, Jr., who is staying at Bou-
logne., It is Mr. Gye's opinion, we understand,
that his adventurous friends will make the best of
their way through France to Dover, on their return
to London;
Weilburg, in Nassau.
"My dear Sir,-I have scarcely time to do more
than announce our safe arrival at theabove village,
after a prosperous and magnificent voyage of about
17 hours, during which time we traversed a portion
of Europe equal to about 480 English miles. Im-
mediately on quitting the gardens, we took a direct
tion of about one point to the southward of east, a
course from which we never sensibly deviated. -
The balloon reached Dover about five o'clock,
which place we passed at a vertical distance of
about half mile to the sastward,crossingthe Chan-
nel from thence to Calais in two minutes within the
hour. Unfortunately for the complete enjoyment
of the prospect, thq night set in just as we reached
the sea-a misfortune which, however, was more
loan compensated,-in my opinion, by the interest,
amounting almost to intensity, occasioned by the
obscurity of the scene, and the uncertainty as to our
actual progress, removed and confirmed by turns,aw"
we occasionally obtained glimpses of the sea be-
neath us, or the coastswe were leaving or approach-
ing. You wil readily perceive, by observation of
the map, what cities and other remarkable places

Charlottesville Advocate contains the followingac-
count of a man near that place, whode life, habits
and death, corresponded with the accounts we have
of Elwes the famous English miser and others of
his stamp.
The neighbors of this eccentric recluse, not .hay-
ing seen or heard any thing of him for several days,.
on Saturday evening last, became apprehensive
that he was very sick or'dead. After repeatedly
knpckingat his door, a window was forced open,
and he was found dead, with his face in the middle

of the fire place. He had evidently just extin-
guished the fire, and was about to retire for the
night, when he was probably attacked by apo-
plexy, and fell dead in the position he was found.
Hisface and head were considerably burned, but
not enough to cause his death. As there were none
of his relations here to take possession of his-
effects, several of the magistrates immediately pro-
-ceeded to an examination of his premises, in order to
secure his money and other property. Only a
few hundred dollars were found above ground, but
after diligently digging up the whole of his cellar,
four or five pots have been discovered in different
places, snugly buried under the walls-of hishouse,
containing in all about $5;950 in silver. Among
his papers were various detached memoranda, of
the amount of his funds at different periods, from
which many are induced to believe he had about
$11,000-but % etlave examined them, and are of
opinion that all his mdney enumerated in these
memoranda had been found, with the exception of
one pot cofit;iining $1,300. The pots found, cor-
respond in amount, and size of coin, with the me-
moranda. 'he interior of his house corresponded
with the character and habits of its owner. It
abounded with every species of lumber and filth,
' and did not appear to have been swept for twenty
f years-presenting the most loathsome and disgus-
ting spectacle we have ever beht-ld.
We understand he came to this place about 1793
or '94, a mere boy, from some of the lower counties
of this State; he served an apprenticeship to the
" saddler's business, which he afterwards carried on
Sfor several years-but abandoned it, and com-
i menaced the disgusting traffic of sBlling whiskey in
small quantities, principally to negroes, which be
Continued till a short time previous to his death.
I Whilst a youth he is said to have been remarkably
gay anffd cheerful, and extremely fond of dancing;
but being naturally of a penurious and suspicious
I disposition, owing to some trivial circumstances, he
became disgusted With the world, and by degrees
" abandoned all intercourse with his fellow beings-
coming out of doors only during the night, to get
water, while t6e coarse and scanty provisions ne-
coessary to sustain life, were supplied, as it is sup-
Sposed, by negroes. 'His dress was of the most
I simple arid antiquated style, consisting of buckskin
t small clothes, and coat ot the same material, which
" he had covered with grease and filth. He lived en-
Stirely alone, and for many years has seldom or ever
D opened his door, which he kept-Mained so as to
admit only the size of a bottle, which he filled and
D returned after receiving the cash through the same
, With the exception of the demoralizing and
t illicit traffic which he carried on with negroes in the
e night, frequently buying from them acres which
e he could not help knowing were stolen, and paying
Them with at commodity of the most injurious ten-
dency-his life was quiet and inoffensive. He
Sometimes conversed freely and had an astonishing
Y acquaintance with the newsof the day, which must
" have been acquired from negroes in the night, who
Probably supplied him with newspapers,-as he
0 subscribed fot none, and obtained none from his
neighbors-nor was he scarcely ever known to ask
r questions relative to passing events.

Every animal has his enemies. The land tor-
toise has two enemies--man and the boa constric-
tor. The natural defence of the tortoise is to draw
himself up in his shell, and remain quiet. In this
state, the tiger, however famished, can do nothing
with him, for the shell is too strong for the stroke
of his paw. Man, however, *les him home and
roasts him; and the boa constrictor swallows him
whole, shell and all, and consumes him slowly in*
the interior, as the court of chancery does a great
estate.-[Edinburg Review.] :

BURIED. ALIvE.--Astonishing Escape.--A labor-
ing man, Daniel Carsner, was on Wednesday last
(Jan. 18) buried alive, in a xell he was cleaning on
' Mill Hill. While at work at the bottom of the well,
which was six feet below an old curb made ofplank
and boards placed perpendicularly, the loose sand
began to cave in around Chim. He called to the men
at the windlass to draw him up immediately. He
sprang into the bucket and had been drawn but a
few feet above the bottom of the od curb when it
was crushed ia at the foot, until the timbers coming
against the bucket were prevented closing entirely.
The earth above, loosened by the slide, gave way
the entire depth of the curbane pressed it in at the
top, making a kind of pent house, in which the bu-
ried man had no room to turn, but space enough to
breathe. The'e was an aperture ftromi the cavity
in which he was enclosed seven feet in length,
formed-by the falling timbers to the surface of the
caved earth which fortunately served for ventilation
and passing down nourishment. Above the. caved
earth to the surface of the ground it was-about 12
feet; this space was protecLed by a curb of timber
placed in a square horizontally.
Inside of the enclosure,operations were com-
menced for liberating the suffering man who could
be heard praying through the aperture. Square
frames, of the height of ordinary boards, were
formed inside of the top curb, and placed to pro-
tect the cavity made by the workmen. Every suc-
ceeding frame having' to' be made smaller and
dropped inside of the one above, the workmen
soon became so much cramped that it was im-
possible to dig any further. This plan had to be
abandoned wen they were about four feet from
the man's- head. Having become more composed
in his mind, the buried man began togive directions
to his friends above how to proceed in theirwork.
He told them to begin the surface, of, the ground
six feet distant from the first curb, and take out all
the earth from the space, that enclosed it to the bot-
tom; then to sink that curb around the timbers
that enclosed him, after the common fashion of
digging wells; he said the caved sand and .ravel
couldthen be removed carefully, and that he might
be liberated-but not before the noon of the next
day. This was about ten o'clock at nightL Those
upon the ground did not shrink from the undertak.
ing ifipracticable as itappeared.c The ground was
frozen to the depth of 2 1-2 feet. As many men
i were-placed as could work, and for the first hour
nothing seemed to be done. It was like working
with stone, A circle of little holes, not much larg-
er than a hat, was all that most active picking had
effected. .,
