The Chiarles Ricci Bridgf. Case.-I-t has been seen
that this cae has been decided against the claim of the
plaintiffs, upon a rule of construction, by which the ex-
tent and nature of the franchise granted to them by the
act of the legislature, is explained to embrace nothing
more than the ordinary facilities of a corporation, for
the.purpose of building the bridge, and the right to re-
ceive certain rates of toll, from such persons as m;iry
choose to pass their bridge. According to this con-
struction "aill the franchises and rights of property enu-
merated in the charter, and those mentioned to have
been granted to it, remain unimpaired, at the present
time." At the same time it is admitted by the Chiet
Justice, in immediate connexion witli this statement, ol
the nature of the franchise of the bridge, that "its in-
come is destroyed by the Warren Bridge, which being
free draws off the passengers and property, which
would have gone over it, and renders their franchise
of no value."
To this result thie Court come by the "rule of construc-
tion" which they adopt,for interpreting the meaning of
the charter. By this rule, a meaning is given to the
charter, which it is remarkable no one thought of for a
period of forly years. During that period a property
grew up to the.value ofthree hundred thousai-ffofolars.
and was saleable for year at that rate or upwards, in
the market, depending solely on an opposite construc-
tion given to the charter, by the universal sentiment of
the public ; while by the new construction the property
confessedly is not worth a cent, and had the public
been wise enough to have discovered this rule of con-
struction at an earlier date, it never would have been
worth more, than a quarter part of the price at which
the shares were saleable for a long period of years.
The rule of construction under which the public had
been led to regard the franchise as of some value was,
that the legislature in authorizing'the corporation to take
certain rates of toll, for the period of seventy years, by
necessary implication engaged not to revoke that au-
thority within the period named, nor to do or authorize
to be done, any aict which would obviously and neces-
sarily deprive them of those tolls. Under the construc-
tion which has received the sanction of the Court, the
legislature has authorized the erection of the Warren
Bridge, which having been paid for, out of the proceeds
of the tolls drawn by it away from the incoine of the
Charles River Bridge, is made free, and it consequent-
ly renders the franchise of the other bridge of no value.
When the proprietors of the latter bridge complain of
this result, the.Court say, that in order "toentitle them--
selves to relief, it is necessary to show, that the legis-
lature contracted not to do the act of which they com-
plain." Now this does not seem a very natural con-
struction. The legislature grants me a certain privil-
ege, as an inducement to me to lay out a large sum of
money for the accommodation of the public. After I
have begun to enjoy the privilege, the legislature grants
an equal participation in the identical privilege to an-
other person, with authority to expend the profits re-
sulting to him therefrom,-in a way that shall extinguish
the beneficial interest which I [till enjoy'in the privil
ege-reserving to me however a mere nominal interest
in the original grant, tile value of which is deliberately
-t- onally destroyed by the act of my neighbour,
expressly aut io-rzPB-i.-,2tijsilature. I complain of
this mockery of a pretended respect for my right., w-hie
1 am deprived of its only value, and I am told by the-
tribunal to which I resort for redress, that to be entitled
to relief, I must show not only that the legislature
granted me the privilege which I claim, for the period
specified, but that they contracted not to take it away
within that period, and not to authorize any other per-
son to deprive me of it. This is a refinement in the
construction of grants, for which we know not where
to seek a parallel.
The Chief Justice goes on seriously to inquire wheth-
er the charter contains a stipulation on the part of the
State, that it would not do the acts by which the com-
plainants are deprived of the whole value of their fran-
chise. "It must be admitted," he says, "on all hands,
that there is none, no words that even relate to another
bridge, or to the diminution of their tolls, or to the line
of travel." It certainly could not be expected that any
such stipulation should be found there, though it may
be thought that such words will be necessary to the
validity of grants hereafter. It may be necessary to
stipulate, that when a privilege is granted for a specifi-
ed period, that it shall not he taken away within that
period. The Chief Justice infers, that as no such words.
are to be found in the charter, and as none can be im-

property of any private individual, or public body is an
invasion of the most sacred principles of public justice,
and such spoliation cannot be vindicated by urgent
circumstances of State necessity, or any plausible pre-
text of State-advantage whatsoever, since no necessity
can vindicate what is in' itself unjust, and no public
advantage can compensate a breach of public faith."-

Errata.-In the last paragraph of the article on the Charles
River Bridge, in Friday's paper, the two following sentences
were rendered unintelligible by slight typographical errors.
We are not disposed to contest this principle, under the lim-
itations here stated, yet there may be a difference in thie principle
of construction. by which the purpose of abandoning the right to
interfere is to be inferred, in one case, and ion the other. That the
right ot taxing a property created under a franchise might be re-
linquished in express terms by the legislature, is admitted by the
court," &c.
Maine Legislature.-The bill which was introduced
into the legislature of Maine, authorizing the appoint-
ment of an additional Judge of the Supreme Judicial
Court, has been rejected on the third reading in the
House by a vote of18 Sto 40.- A bill to prohibit the
sale of rum, brandy and other spiritous liquors, in.less
quantities than 28 gallons, except by physicians and
apothecaries, and declaring all contracts relating to
such liquors null and void, has been referred to the
next session of the Legislature, and ordered to be pub-
lished in all the newspapers in the State.
Court of Inquiry.-The revised opinion of the Court
of Inquiry on the cases of Generals Scott and Gaines
is published in the Globe with the approval of Presi-
dent Van Buren. It not only acquits Gen. Scott of all

that all the cases of thlis sort, which have occurred in
this State, and as fai as our knowledge extenids,in other
States, in which compensation has not been provided
for the parties injured, are wanting in the grand dis.
tinctive feature ofthe VWarren Bridge case. They have
none of them been granted or carried into operation for
the sole or chief purpose of evading the toll authorized
by thie previously existing grant, nor without some well
founded allegation of public accommodation aifd utility,
not afforded by the previously existing improvement.
These circumstances create a clear distinction between
the several cases, and they are sufficient to obviate any
alarm which might have been felt, for the fate of other
public improvements, from their liability to embarrass-
ment from this cause. It is not unlikely that other
cases exist which might have been brought within the
principles which were relied on for redress, by the pro-
prietors of the Charles Ri('er Bridge; but there would
have been little ground for apprehension,had those prin-
ciples been recognized by the court, that the adventur-
ers, as they are called, in these improvements, would
have been too strongly guarded in the enjoyment of
their rights, for the true interest of the cause of public
So far indeed is the principle contended for, by -he
comnplainantAin this case, front being at variance with
the unifurni practice in this State, and we believe in
other States, lhat their claim was founded on a prin-
ciple engrafted into thle constitution of this State, and
which forms the basis ofall our legislation for public
improvements, viz: that private property shall not be
taken for public uses, witlihoutJ cs!npenfation. J .-a-ll
our ji-aLrTor"r the construction of turnpikes, canals,
and railroads, it will be found that provision is made
for affording compensation fur private property taken or
Tlie consequential injury, ari;sig from tile compe-
tition of new improvements, dema-nded for the public
convenience, it is true, it is not the practice oftthe coun-
try to provide compensation for, and it ought not to be.
The proprietors of a work of public improvement must
take their chance of its being superseded by a work of
different character and higher degree of utility, called
'for by the public exigencies. The proprietors of a turn-
pike for example, have no right to complain that the
travel upon their road is diverted, by the superior im-,
provement of a canal, a steam boat, or a rail road.-
But the proprietors of a turnpike, a canal, or a rail road,
would have a right to complain, if another turnpike,
canal, or rail road were authorized, designed to accom-
modate the same travel, and affording no additional fa-
cilities, but established solely for the purpose of depriv-
ing the graritees'of the first, of their right of taking toll.
This is precisely the case of the Warren Bridge. It
was established, not because the public. conveniences
required another bridge, but because the public reluct-
ed at paying the toll exacted by the old bridge. In other
words the public demanded a free brige ; and a free-
bridge they certainly had a right to have,provided they
would pay for it. But to establish a free bridge during
the existence of a contract made by the legislature for
the establishment of a toll bridge, it is evident-was an
interference with that contract. It destroyed the prop-
erty created by the contract. It destroyed the value of
the shares in the bridge stock, which individuals, plac-
ing faith in the public grant, had purchased for large
sums of money. Still the public had an undoubted
right to establish a free bridge-to take the property
vested'in the toll 'bridge for a public use-upon the
simple condition of making compensation therefore.
We have made these remarks upon the decision of
our highest legal tribunal, not for the purpose of find-
ing fault with the individuals of whom it is composed,
or of endeavouring to diminish the confidence of any
one a i F i rit _of that tribunal, but to
show that the question has beentffl o i this case,
by a rule of construction, which does noteet ,"
stantial merits of the case, and that notwithstanding"
this decision, the proprietors of the original bridge
have an equitable claim for compensation tor the loo,. f
their property. It is apparent to the common semse of
every one, that their property has been taken away
from them for a public use, and the question still re-
mains for the consideration of the legislature, whether
they will continue to withhold it from them without
compensation. To do so would be to persist in an act
at variance with the uniform character of the legislation
of our State. It would shake the confidence which
has hitherto been placed in the promises of the legisla-
ture, and would fix a stain on the character of the
Commonwealth. It would be an act upon which all
reflecting men, wherever they may be found, would
have but one opinion. We cannot make a better close
of these remarks than by citing the following appropri-
ate passage, from the most popular writer of the pres-
ent age.

In a moral point of view, the seizing upon the

sc~uire~rarrp- izar~sl--~,~~L~OII~B~6~W~((~7P~rplru~lr -s~s~-~Cu~IIOI~IBP-~~~ ---IP~LLI~

which have not yet been proved,) the Armenians, Ar-
menian catholics, and Franks, have certainly suffered
much less ; so that my estimate may be very near the
truth, which is the thing I seek. I remember in 1819,
when little was said on the subject, seeing much more
activity in the grave-digging department, though every
body else says we have had no such plague since the
great one of 1812. We have an American here, named
Charles Brown, formerly in business at Boston, and
now just arrived from Egypt, who says he has a spe-
cific which disarms the plague completely of its sting.
Under its protection he offers to put on the clothes of
plague subjects, to lie-down in their feverish beds, and
to expose himself in all manner of ways; but, as lie
expects to be paid for making known his discovery, I
fear he stands but a poor chance of- being called upon
to favour the eastern public with it. A regularly or-
ganized quarantine in this country is totally out of the
question, and were it attempted we should have its evils
without its benefits ; but there could be no harm in es-
tablishingl hospitals to receive the sick, and lazarets for
the purification of those who have been exposed to in-
fection ; these would cost little, and the disorder, by
proper attention at first, might thus be prevented from
spreading without impeding trade in the slightest de-
gree. For purification, perhaps, Mr. Brown's specific
might be turned to account Every man who labours
to mitigate the ravages of this horrid disorder is entitled
to praise and public encouragement. The minister oil
the interior has so far recovered from his late attack, as
to appear almost daily at the Porte ; but he looks more
like a spectre than a man, and cannot apply himself to.
the most trifling occupation without showing weakness
and lassitude.
On the 14th a Tartar arrived from Persia, bringing

and it was feared that all persons on board perished, as
no news of their escape had been received. There is
room to hope however, that they had been taken off
the wreck by some vessel.
There was a slight improvement in the Cotton mar-

some little relief in the money market at Liverpool and
LoSDON, Feb. 22.--We stated in the Times of Mon-
day, that so severe had been the pressure of money in
Liverpool at the close of the preceding week, the com-
mercial classes in that town had been discussing the
proprki ty of applying to the Governuient for pecuniary
assi'nct'e.. T'he meeting, to which allusior is made
in our previous statement, was held on Monday last.-
We are not fully informed of what took place at the
meeting; we are informed, however, that while the

trades to those quarters to avoid ruinous--s7l.sJl
property to meet their engagements, the American As-

was either desirable or necessary.. As in any applica-
tion of the kind commercial men should be united, and
as union could not be obtained in the present case, it
was understood in the course of the afternoon that all
intention of applying to the government for pecuniary
assistance was, at least for the present abandoned.-
The favorable accounts from the United States, and
particularly the rise in the price of cotton on Monday,
had re-inspired their confidence, and sanguine hopes
were entertained that the dificulties which seemed so

The Fire at .'aplcs.-A letter of the 9th inst. from
Naples, published ini the Augsburg Gazette, contains
the following :--"Tle fire at the Royal Palace, which
was momentarily subdued,aganin burst outin the after-
noon, and continued to burn with great violence -until
late at night. In order to preveoit it; cr'umirunicating
to the Theatre Son Oarlus, and to the front of the Pal-
ace, a wall of eight feet in thickness was raised. This
expedient succeeded. The cause of the fire is not
known. At five o'clock in the morning the flames
reached lhe roof, and made such rapid progress that the
Queen Mother had scarcely time to escape. The libra-
rv and the ma-nificent collection of paintings belong-
ing to his Majesty, have been destroyed. Thie Prince
of Syracuse narrowly escaped. The minoke had- filled
his apartments when assistance reached him.--He
was taken from his bed in a state- of insensihilitv.

The Slave Trade. STOCKHOLM, Feb. 3.-The King
has instructed the minister for foreign affairs, fbr time
execution of the treaty between Franice and Sweden,
for the abolition of the slave trade, to give, for such
French ships as the French government should declare
to be employed as cruisers against the slave trade, li-
censes to search, in the seas agreed upon in the treaty,
such Swedish and Norwegian ships as may be suspect-
ed of being engaged in that trade, or to be fitted out
for thie purpose of carrying it on.
IBATAVIA.-By accounts from Batavita we are fur-
nished with some melancholy particulars of the fate of
the crew and passengers of the Charles Eaton. Capt.
Lewis of the ship Isabella, in search of'. them, entered
the barrier reefs at Cumberland's entrance, and brought
up at Murcnimy's Island, where he found William D'O-
ley, youngest son of Captain D'Oyley, of the, Bengal
army, and John Ireland, a boy belonging, to the Charies
Eaton, about 17 years old, both quite naked. He bought
them with axes of the natives, who had been kind to
them, having taken them from a small Island called
Boydang, where all the rest of the crew and pai3sengers
had been murdered by the natives of an island called
Aureed. It appears that those on board had left the
ship on two rafts. The Captain, Captain and Mrs. D'-

the same Island. The boy Ireland was on the second
raft, and he states that on landing at Boydang, lie saw
the eldest son of captain D'Oyley, who told hini that
his father, mother, and the whole of the people on the
first raft, had been nmurdered--alad named John Sex-
ton and himself onlyexcepted. Ireland further stated
that they murdered these two also, and all that were
with him on the second raft, only leaving hini and the
child, Wm D'Oyley, alive. On Captain Lewis's

CONSTANTINOPLE, Jan. 18.-The plague has now
positively diminished so sensibly as to be of little fur-
ther interest in a public point of view. The miortality
has been great, but those who have adopted the exag.-
gerated idea that it amounts to 100,000 and 150,000,
are certainly very far from the true mark, which I
should not take to be beyond 25,000; neither do I form
tils estimate without some data. By order of the Greek
patriarch a list has been drawn up of all the Greek bu-
rials, from the commencement of the malady up to the
5th inst. (and very few indeed have died since,) and,
according to this document, which is official, the deaths
in Constantinople, its environs and all the villages,
even up to the mouth of the Black Sea, amount to
4,303. Now, as far as I have ever been able to ascer-
tain, the Greek inhabitants form upwards-of a fifth o0
of the whole population, and if the Turks and Jews
have suffered more in proportion than they (points

The Cabinet.-The Washington Metropolitan, which
it is said, is the organ of the Administration, gives the
following version of the story of Mr. Forsyth's resigna.-
tion :
We have reason to believe that the following will be
found the true state of the case, as embraced in the
leading facts~
The proposition to undertake, ithe new mission to
Austria, -originated with Mr. Forylth himself, and not
with the President. Austria,in national rank holds, and
has held, fbr many centuries, the precedence in diplo-
matic etiquette among all the countries ot Europe, and
the honor of representing the Republic of the United
States at' such a court,' as well as opening and estab-
lishing, in the person of the first minister, official and
permanent national relations with it, was rightly deem-
ed by Mr. Forsvth an employment of the highest hon-
or and dignity'for an American statesman ; while it
would have been not less complimentary and gratifying
to the court of Austria to have perceived in the inew
ambassador, a cabinet minister, and a gentleman who
was known, throughout Europe as the able head of the
State Department,' during the administration'of Gen-
eral Jackson. There waa.-therefore, a peculiar fitness

plied, the same answer must be given as was given to
the Providence Bank, when it was decided that an ex-
emption from taxation could not be implied, in a grant
which'contained no reference to taxation-the right of
taxing property held under a charter, and the, right of
doing an act which entirely destroys property held un-
der a charter, being placed in the same category.
He proceeds to argue further in support of this con-
struction, from the language of the act of 1792, by which
West Boston Bridge was established and the charter of
Charles River Bridge was extended. After stating'the
facts, and citing a part of the act, he says "it appears
then, that by the same act that extended this charter, the
legislature established another bridge, which they knew
would lessen its profits; and this too before the expira-
tion of the first charter, and only seven years after it
was granted, thereby shewing, that the State did not
suppose, that by the terms it had used in the first law,
it had deprived itself of the power of making such pub-
lic improvements as might impair the profits of Charles
River Bridge.". It is an obvious answer to this reason-
ing, that the erection of West Boston Bridge, although
it might diminish the amount of profits of Charles River
Bridge, is justified on grounds entirely different from
any which apply to the Warren Bridge. The public
convenience, and the accommodation of a different line
of travel evidently required the erection of West Bos-
ton Bridge,but no such considerations called for the e-
rection of Warren Bridge; that being promoted solely

Later from Erope.-The packet ship Havre,.arriw-
ed at New York, on Tuesday'rom Havre, in the short
passage of 21 days, bringing 1Parispaplers to the 2d inst.
The papers contain very little' news. The English
dates are to Feb. 27, on which day consols opened at
9 1-8d., closed at 90. Money was in great demand,
to supply the manufacturing districts, and to meet the
engagements of the week. The following extracts are
furnished by the New York Gazette-:-
Marshal Clauzel had refused an invitation to dine at
the Truileries with several of his colleagues in the Chainm-
ber, in spite of the solicitations made to him on the sub-
ject. This refusal was founded on the reasons which
obliged himin to clear up belfoje the-Chamnber, the ques-
tion of his government& at Algiers, before appearing at
Court. His conduct was approved-by Marshals Soult
and Gerard.
According to a recent act of the French government,
the naval peace establishment is to consist of two hun-
dred and ninety sail of'vessels, viz: 40 vessels of the
first ciass; 50 frigates, and 200 vessels of smaller force.
The Chatnber of Peers was about to sit as a Court

order of the legislature. These reports embrace such
facts of general interest as have been discovered, in the
prosecution of the surveys thus far, but not the minute
details which will be given in the final -report. Strong
expectations have been entertained that coal mines
would be discovered within the limits of the state.-
These expectations, we learn frore the Albany Argus.
have not been realized by the investigations which have
been made thus far in this survey. The district of
country embraced in the southern tier of coun-
ties bordering on the state of Pennsylvania, where
there was supposed to be the greatest probability of dis-
covery of coal, has been found to consist of sand stones

and shales, which support the coal strata only,and it is
ascertained that the coal region does not extend beyond
the Pennsylvania line. The statement which was made
a short time since of the discovery of coal at Haver-
straw is contradicted. A large quantity of a material
which was dug out of the earth for coal, proved to be
nothing but a mass of black shining slate. Frequent
mistakes of'this kind, it is stated, have been made, large
quantities of this material having been discovered at
Troy, -at Van Wie's Point, and along various parts of
the Hudson, ,which possesses none of the properties oi
coal but *its black and shining colour.
Expectations appear to be -entertained of the discov.
ery of rock salt. This material has not yet been dis.
covered. Salt springs only are discovered, from which
salt in great quantities is manufactured, but at the ex
pense of a great'consumption of fuel. Numerous beds
of marl have been found in various parts of the State
which are useful for manure, and also of plaster in th(
canal district, which is considered as- valuable as th(
article brought from Nova Scotia.
Masters Commandant.-On the last day of the lat
session of Congress a bill was passed, and approved by
the President, providing that all Masters Commandan
in the Navy should thenceforward be called by the tith
of Commander. Four or five days afterwards the nev
President, with the advice and consent of the Senate
as we were infornied by the Globe, appointed nineteen
new Masters Commandant, a title which it was supposed
that Congress intendedto abrogate.
Ohio.-The Legislature of Ohio at the present ses
sion, his authorized the establishment of a number o
new banks There are already thirty-two banks existing
in the State, the aggregate capital of which paid ii
amounts to $9,247,296. The circulation of these banks
on the 1st of January -last amounted to $8,326,974, th
private deposits $3,463,450, and the deposits of the
government of the United States $4,126,483. The
amount, of specie was $3,153,334, of which abou1
$1,3000000 wore :in -the six deposit banks. The whole
amount, of notes ,discounted was .$18,178,699.
X -fr..Madison's Papers.---Congress lately appropriated
$30,000 for the purchase of Mr. Madison's manuscript
reports of the proceedings of the old- Congress, and ol
the Federal Convention for forming the Constitution.
We learn from the Richmond Enquirer, that the family
are preparing for the ,press five or-six volumes of man-
uscripts, independent of those purchased by the gov-
ernment, including a volume devoted to Constitutional
Doctrines, and four or five of:Correspondence.

In the Senate of New York on Friday last, a bill be-
ing under consideration for making appropriations oi
the State's share of the Surplus Revenue, Mr. Beards-

that he had voted inmfavor of thie appropriation, but an

"Correspondence of the Journal of Commerce. -
-WASHINGTON, March 25fh, 1837.
GCbinet meetings have been held every day this
week, upon the subject of the Treasury order. The
discussions have, it is said, been rather warm, and it is
believed that majority of the Cabinet are decidedly in
favor of revoking the order, forthwith. The matter is
unsettled; but-those who have had, within the last two
days, the best opportunities to know the views and dis-
position of the President on the question, say that he is
afraid to repeal the order, and will not do-it. Further,
they say that he will not shut up the land offices, nor,
in any other way, evade or relax, or do away with the
measure,-except by delaying the regular land sales by
auction' till Congress shall have an opportunity to act
on the whole subject. The lands subject to entry can,
in the mean time, be entered, as usual,-and the amount
of entries, at present, is not on the decrease.
The Judiciary.-The Senate, on Thursday, passed
the resolutions for so amending the constitution as to
provide for -the appointment of two additional justices
of the supreme court; and yesterday rejected those
which proposed to confer on the legislature power to re-
organize the court of chancery, reduce the number of
circuit judges, appoint additional vice-chancellors, and
regulate the right of appeal. Some of the powers
enumerated in tie latter resolutions, it is conceded that
.the legislature already possess, and others a majority
of the $Senate deemed it inexpedient to grant.
The Senate -have also passed a bill authorizing the

JACKSONVILLE, March 16 -Col. Warren informs us
that he has just'heard that two Indian rafts had crossed
from the west to the-east side of the Suwanee River,
eight miles feelow Charles Ferry, supposed to have been
used by Oseola and 'his men, coming into Gen; Jesupjs
camp. The rafts were discovered on the 12th inst.
Maj. Hart, who arrived from Newinansville on Tues-
day last, gave us the following information which he
obtained fromn Mr. Harris, bearing despatches from
Gem. Jesup to the Governmenrt.

Jumper and Little Cloud, Abraham and some other
chiefs, were in. On the 9th inst. the day Mr. Harris
left Gen. Jesup's head quarters, Tigertail came in, and
reported that he had brought with him 16 Indians-
men, women and children. He drew rations for them.
Little Cloud commanded at the battle of the Wahoo.
Micanopy had sent for.a horse to bring him. General
Jesup sent the horse requested. The horse fell down
with Micanopy ,on him, and hurt the chief so much
that he could -not come in. Micanopy has since asked
of Gen. Jesup to forward to him padk horses to bring
in his women, children, &c. The horses were sent.-

False Alarm.-A paper of this morning informs the
public, that seven hundred and thirty-five thousand
dollars in Bank Stock, and twenty thousand dollars of
City Stock, are to be sold at auction on Saturday next,
by order of the Directors of the Savings Bank. it is
added, that curiosity is active ito know the cause ofsach
an immense sale, at a time when Stocks of almost all
descriptions are sold at a sacrifice.
For raising wantonly the cry of fire, a penalty is pro-
vided by law ; but our community is so accustomed to
idle reports in the newspapers,that little agitation is pro-
duced by them. The probable object of the paragraph re--
ferred to, may fail in consequence.of the very attention
that will be drawn ito it. Two important deficiencies
in the elements of alarm must be at once discovered.
One is, that the City Stock is offered not by the Sav-
ings Bank, which is not guilty of owning half so much,
and probably would not sell a dollar; had it tn times
the amount. The other error, apparent from the adver-
tisement, is, that the Stock offered is seventy thousand
two hundred dollars, instead of seven hundred and
thirty-five thousand.
If the desire to know the -catr-e of this sale be reas-
onable,it may easily be gratified. The stock must be sold,
ascertain the precise value of the residue, only one
tenth being offered. To make the division of profits!
among the depositors, required in the coming season by
the Bye-laws of the Institution, it should be known to -
a single cent, what all the property is worth ; and lihe
would be a bold man, that should resolve to a fraction
the market price of shares in twenty-five Banks, when
no quotations have been possible for many months. 1
suppose there can be no doubt, that some profit will
arise from the investment of the Institution in Bank
Stocks, and the depositors, who have more concern than
any body else in the result, will know it, when their
dividend is declared. S.
MR. EDITOR-1I am happy'to see announced in your
paper, that Mr. Upham's Lecture on Col. Pickering, is,
to be repeated this evening. This gentleman's course'
of seven lectures, delivered before the Society for the
Diffusion of Useful Knowledge gave such general
pleasure and valuable instruction to all who had the
good fortune to hear them, and so widely established
his reputation as a popular, interesting and really use-
ful lecturer, that I deem it superfluous to say any thiing
Sin his commenndation. I merely wish to remind his
friends aud the public of what the advertisement states,:
that the Lecture of this evening is an independent one, i
not delivered before any of the regular literary'societies!
of the city, and that therefore the audience will depend
upon the general interest felt in the Lecturer and his
subject. This interest will be manifested I trust, by a
large and overflowing assembly at the Temple. The
lecture, as is well known to those who have heard it, is
chiefly a deli-ieation of the private character, and an,
account of the private life of Col. Pickering, in which
were some incidents of thrilling interest, particularly
his violent seizure in Pennsylvania, by a band of ruffians
in disguise, who kept him bound to:a tree 'for twenty
days. It contains nothing that need give oflbnce tq the
most morbid political sensibility, and will be enriched
I have understood, by some valuable facts and interest-
ing anecdotes,'communicated to Mr. "Upham, since he
delivered it a few weeks ago, before the Mass. Histori-
cal Society. Its entertaining narrative and instructive
lessons, will amply repay all, who devote an hour to
attend it.

UTICA, March 21.-A cold blooded attempt was made
last Friday evening, to murder Mr. John Schuyler of
New Hartford. He was met, as we learn, at Mr.
Ha.mblin's tavern, about'two miles'from this city, by
Samuel Bennet and Lyman Smith who had an old
grudge against him, and had threatened vengeance
whenever an opportunity should offer. One of these
men advanced upon Mr. Schuyler and grasped him to
prevent resistance, while the other inflicted upon him
ten or twelve, wounds in tihe breast, side, and neck,
with a Spanish dirk. Mr. Hamblin, the only person
present, stood in his bar, and saw the men scufflEhng.
He supposed that the stabs were mere feints, and no
harm was intended, until he saw a jet of blood issue
from one of the -wounds, towards-the ceiling. He,ush-
ed out anti caught hold of the man who had the dirk
but immediately received a blvw in the face which
struck him down senseless. On recovering, he found
tile wounded man lying on the floor, respiring through
the wound in his neck. The ruffians had left the.
house. Pursuit was -immediately made, and they were
taken in a few hours, by our police officers, at a hpmuse
of ill fame in this city. Mr. Schuyler's recovery is

The petition ofthe President and Directors of the Quincy Canal,
to thie Hon. the Senate and the House of Representatives of the
State of Massachusetts, in GeneralCourt assembled :
r OUIR Petitioners respectfully represent, that on the 26th day
of February, 1825, an act was passed by your Hlon. bodies,
incorporating certain persons in Q.uincy, under the title of the
Proprietors of the Quincy Canal, with power to dig a Canal, and
make the necessary Locki and Gates, for the greater accommo-
dation of vessels drawing not more than 9 feet water, and for ihe
facilitation of the transfer of Stone from the quarries in Quincy
to the Water-reference to which act in the laws of Massachu-
setts, for the year 18-25, is respectfully requested. According to
the terms ot said Act, the property of the Company was divided
into 60 shares, upon each of which a sum of not exceeding 125
dollars, was assessed and actually paid in, making in all $7500-
but the said sum having proved insufficient to complete thepro-
posed undertaking, and it being deemed inexpedient at that time
to require a further sum trom the proprietors, resort was had to a
voluntary loan, on the pledge of the rents and profits accruing
from the privileges of .the Canal, no part of which could be real-
ized by the Stockholders uitm 1I-aWi loan was paid off. Eleven
years have passed away, and onlyr'itre -a3000 have yet
been paid, leaving $200W yet to be paid, before t -if ders
can receive any thing on the stock. Wherefore, by the concTir-
rence fall the Pioprietors, excepting two hares, we the Presi-
dent and Directors of the Quincy Canal, are authorized to pray
forsuch an amendment of the seventh section of their Act of In-
corporation already alluded to, as will enable them to assess a
fuirt hr suin not exceeding $30, L pon each share of the stock, thus
making a sufficient sumto pay 6ff all the burden of debt now due,
and enabling the Proprietors t0 foresee within a reasonable time.
some prospect of a small compensation for the labor and risk of
the undertaking, which has proved eminently serviceable to the
public in Q(uincy, though not yet to themselves, as well as for the
loss of interest for 11 years, already incurred.
All which is respectfully submitted.

In Senate, --, 1837.
On the petition aforesaid-Ordered, That the Petitioners cause
an attested copy of their petition, with this order thereon, to be
published in the Quincy Patriot, a newspaper printed in Quincy,
and three times in the Daily Advertiser, a newspaper printed in
Boston,- the last publication to be three days at least, before the
fourth day of April next, that all-persons interested, may then
appear, and shew cause, if any they have, why the prayer of said
petition should not be granted.
Sent down for concurrence.

We discharge, a painful duty in announcing the death
of the Hon. Joseph C. Yates, late Governor of this
State. /-te expired on Sunday, at his residence in the
city of' Schenectady, to whichli he has been confined
several .months by illness. Gov. Yates has been for
many years associated with lhe judicial and political
history of this State; although since his retirement in
1824, he has not been in public lile, excepting as a pre-
sidential elector in 1828. The event of'his death was
communicated by message from Gov. Marcy to both
Houses of the Legislature.--.lbani! .rgus.

Baltimore and Ohio Rail Road.-We learn from the

from 100 to 1- 2 f.et above that river, and havinga steep
descent to its banks, the interventig land buing at
pretseti covered with forest trees. Thins hlocality is in-
e.x'hatiLst, le and the slate is uf an excellent quality,
cuntatninfa no p.rites and is capable porresisting, as mnay
s-e seetn on i'o s ef.xp.ised surface, the action of air and ,
w.-iter Ibr ages, without undergoing decomposition.
The shepts of r lati weie )observ'ed to run E. by N. and
\V. by S., and they dip N. W. 70'. Slates, from one to,
six luet square, nity be. s'iht with great ease from this
rock, and in antiy quantity desired. A great natural ad-
vantage is presented at these localities, by the nearly ver-
tical position of thie strata, while they uoccu'pv elevated
ground, and may ibe transiportedto the river by a regular
slope of the land, rail way bci ng made for the dis-lance.
which is only 2010 rods.. :o valuable '& locality shouldi
not be allowed to0remnain unf\ brought, and I am happy *
to learn that it is in contemplation to begin operations
at this place early next summer. While at this locali-
ty, some calculations were made respecting ig the cost of,
Iransporting the, slate; and from data furnished by
,ent.ientmt.i well acquainted with the navigation of the
'e nobscit, it appeared that it could be landed in Boston,
at the cost of $8 per ton. Now the Welsh imperial
slates sell for $27 per ton, and this locality will furnish
an equally good article. 1 feel no hesitation in saying,
that, in my opinion, Maine is capable of supplying alI
the United States with good roofingslates. The whole
section from Williamsburg to Bafigor, appears to be
composed of argillaceous slate; 1' have observed it on
either side of the river below that city. Doubtless
other quarries will be found, equally valuable with those
of Williarnsburg, but I have not yet visited any which
can be wrought so advantageously."

In CommoN COUNCIL, on Thursday, the petition of
the Primary School Committee, that a committee of the
City Council may be appointed to examine several lo-
cations selected by the Primary School Committee
whereon to erect School houses, was referred to the
committee on Public Lands, in concurrence.
SThe Council concurred with the Board of Aldermen
in the adoption of the orders establishing the bounda-
ries between the City and Roxbury.
Messrs. Waters, Williams and Austin. were appoint-
ed a committee, to be joined, to consider what measures
may be requisite for the City Council to take in rela-
tion to the surplus revenue now about to be divided
among the several cities and towns of this Common-
wealth, with liberty to report by ordinance or other-
wise ; and to this.committee was referred an order from
the other board, authorizing the. Treasurer to receive
the City's portion of said revenue ; sent up for concur-
The report of the- Committee on the subject of re-
moving the jail to South Boston, accompanied by or-
ders for the sale of the land and buildings in Leverett
street, and for the erection of a jail, and jailor's house,
at an expense not exceeding $45,000, which came from
the other board, for concurrence, were under discussion
for some time, when the Council adjourned.

Pennsylvania.-The Pennsylvania House of Repre-
sentatives,, aftermuch discussion, has passed a bill mak-
ing appropriation for internal improvements. The whole
sdm appropriated for the present year is $2,833,000, of
which $1.400,000 is to be expended on various works
which are the property of the State, and $1,433,000 in

and bridges, belonging to several corporations.

The following is copied from the Obituary of the
London Society of Friends, fbr the year ending 1.836:-
" In our last number, we noticed as a remarkable fea-
ture of the obituary, that of those whose deaths were
recorded in it, an unusual proportion had attained to ad-
vanced age ; but in the present obituary that propor-
tion of this class is still greater. Out of rather more
than 200 adults, there are 90 persons trom the age of
70 to 98, presenting an average of full 80 years: of
these, one-fourth are from 78 to-98, presenting an aver-
age of full 85 years, and 10 are from 90 to 98, present-
ing an average of full 94 years.

Geology of Maine.-Among the-numerous imp^)ve-

Happy to notice the "First Report on the Geolog of
Maine." published by*the order of the Legislatu of
SAthat State, by Dr. C. T. Jackson, of this city: Fhe
work is replete with information of the most val -ble
kind, and is accompanied with an Atlas, illustration the
Rock forimation and scenery of the localities over w ich
he passed,executed by Mr. Graeter, who was em -oy-
et as draftsman to the survey. .I
Geological surveys have- recently -been undertaken
by most of the states in the Union, and thus fur hove
been productive of the most auspicious results. Agri-
culture has been improved, quarries opened, and .mast
treasures ofmifieral wealth have beAen discovered,w ich
will eventually prove a never failing source ofprospEritv
to our nation. Although Dr. Jackson's researihe's
have yet extended over but a small section of the Sate,
there is abundant evidence that the money alreadyrl iid
South for the survey, has been advantageously expended,
and his-future labors will, we truet, 'be attended witli
like favorable results. '.

say nothing of the immense quantities of marble, gyp-
