American Telegraph (Newspaper) - October 03, 1851, Washington, Washington-DCAmbo can Teleg Learh washj"1". Friday afternoon oct. 3. = we receive a great Many comm Utica Tiff from Persona whose names Are withheld or unknown to us and of course we can pay no attention to them. Growing Kuter Iye to tie 8outto�rn believing that the " direct Trade movement on the part of the South now going on will have the happiest Raulte in turning the energies an resources of the South into the legitimate Chan Nel of Commerce and manufactures we i use our Best exertions to give it every assistance in our Power. The conventions that have already met have acted with great unanimity of sentiment and spirit and the convention of planters held at Macon Georgia on the 27th.inst. Deserves the serious consideration of the South. The Cotton Rice Wool lumber manufacturing and shipping interests Are involved in it. Vir Ginia North Carolina South Carolina Florida Georgia Alabama Mississippi Arkansas ten Nessee and Louisiana will be represented and the movement originating among the planters will terminate in borne great change in Trade. And while the other districts of the country Are arousing themselves should Maryland be Idle with her tobacco interest will she have no representative at the convention is Baltimore satisfied with her partial Success ? have not foreign agents in this country for years been reaping the Benefit of her product and particularly her tobacco Are not the agents of the present system agents for the Consumers and not for the producers is such an Arrau Gomert conducive of Good to Tho farming and planting interests ? even the capital of this great coun try has not one single importing House we Hope this subject will be take up As it deserves. Let the South turn her attention to Trade and manufactures instead of politics for the redress of the grievances of which Sho com Plain. We shall hereafter discuss this subject at length and shall have it in our Power to publish n Large amount of statistical matter for the in formation of our Southern friends. Putting mild annihilation i newspaper editors have very commonly fallen into this error but nowhere More generally than in this locality. The City of Washington has always afforded so Small an amount of advertising patronage that publishers have not thought it Worth looking to As a Means of sup port but have kept their attention fixed on Public sources. The consequence is that the duties for which editors elsewhere Aro Best paid Are performed Here gratuitously. A very Large proportion of the local articles upon examination will be found the Best kind of advertisements intended to promote private interests. In charities free concerts or exhibitions benevolent enterprises or whatever the getters up choose to Call by these names every thing is paid for but the advertising and while marriages and funerals prove profitable to the Parson the confectioner the goods Man the undertaker the Sexton and every body the publisher works without recompense. Somebody says " Reform that is not so easy it is easier to observe the Wise injunction when you arc in Turkey do As the tur keys do the editor of the Charlestown free press refers to these abuses and says we Aro tired of working for , it docs not replenish the this certainly is a serious objection to the practice. The Competition Between editors to " give the news first renders them an easy prey to the knowing ones. Thus the two Best Adver Tison objects except Brand ret u s pills eve introduced into this country have been Jenny Lind and Phillips s fire annihilator and yet the work has been Donc gratuitously and editors have fancied themselves Lucky in receiving articles ready written. They have probably not repented their praises of the Beautiful Binger but some seem to doubt the vast Utility of the great extinguisher. The Philadelphia Sun for example asks is. It not a Little singular that although we hear of companies being organized and Patent. Rights disposed of for the Sale and use of Phil 1 lips s fire annihilator we have heard of no 4 one instance As yet in which it has been prac. Tidally applied to the extinction of Firce excepting such As had been purposely kindled. For the trial of the machine under the most. Favourable circumstances and the Balti More Sun has a letter from a new York correspondent who informs us that " this company is. Doing a smashing Barnum bus. In this struck upon a Gold pockets. Of which will not run out until Public disappointment shall close them. The amount of sales and contracts for the annihilator is in Mense and it has never yet put out any but a Sham fire and i fear never will. The Long deferred exhibition of the Power of Tho annihilator is again talked of. Let them apply it to the real fires of every Day occurrence. The attractive toy will soon be cnut aside for some. New plaything by the Gullible Public. Per haps however it May Lead to some improve 4 ments of substantial this May or May not be so but the press is editorially responsible for More haphazard puff ing than it has Ever had a Good motive for perpetrating. Testimonial or Rev. F. S. Evans having recently resigned his situation a chief clerk of the pension office the clerks attached to it caused to be manufactured by Lewis a Large and handsome Silver Pitcher is a testimonial of their regard for his faithful impartial and honest about forty of these gentlemen assembled at the Resi Dence of or. Evans on wednesday when major Kirby As their Organ presented the Pitcher in an appropriate address. The compliment was acknowledged in appropriate terms by the recipient. Off Public. I the number of immigrants who arrived anew York during the month of september was38,730, and the number of vessels employed infringing them Over was 339. The steamship Union sailed from new York on wednesday for new Orleans with 193 Cabin and 20 Steerage passengers. Watch House Len from the Republic that during the Paat month there were received into our City watch House coloured people 61 foreigners .69 White americans. 69 total 169 foreigners who Hare been several years in this country Are Seldom the subjects of police care. The bad among them Reform their habits or die off very soon. Though our climate is far from unhealthy there is something in it and its Vicissitudes under which the european of sloth us and dissipated habits soon sinks. Could the number of those who arrive on our shores in any one year and the portion of that number who survive at the end of five years be ascertained the truth exhibited would be truly appalling. We see these people arriving in tens of thou Sands and often the thought occurs that so great an influx must in americanism american society yet except when they unwisely continue to cling together in communities in the Lapso of the time we have Nanod death will be found to have removed a fearfully Large proportion while they who remain have acquired a practical knowledge of the habits and customs of americans. The negro however is not improving in this City but deteriorating. Idleness sloth immorality and physical suffering prevail among them to such an extent that they who do for Short periods go out to service Are unpleasant and dangerous inmates of our houses while hundreds and thousands of them Are crowded in hovels in several portions of the City in Tho midst of disease and unclean Siuess. An inspection of their houses and a knowledge of their Mode of life would astonish any Oue who has not looked into the subject. We commend it to our worthy mayor and Tho officers acting under him. It is proper however that we should add that Many honorable exceptions May to found to this description but where a negro or mulatto endeavours to perform his duty and live respectably he has to encounter the prejudices excited by the miserable habits of the masses. A charge of my admin str Tion. Llie following has been handed us for publication by a gentleman who assures us its state ments Are accurate. We do not profess to have any information in regard to it ourselves but As the writer is responsible and the subject of Public interest we do not hesitate to give place to his communication to the editors of the american Telegraph gentlemen it has been said and often re How their Aff peple have � i jul 10 know a int Titre by their ser the i a his ?ref0r by purp�8e t0 informed by the Telegraph As your paper is Tho med of Thi th7ug,h w-i0h the be i be Are Verne no of their gov Judin shall it w 11 arc numbered that j., of ? tie lat0 second comptroller hav land tie a appointment to Settle californian titles resigned his Post of second Corni James a \ of september Laht a thate Adison cute the chief clerk of that the a stroller until the Hon.

I it now becomes the people to inquire if it Wasby authority of Law this Money was paid 1?has been thought heretofore that it required a written appointment from the president or Sec 1 f �1ge before Tho Pete s Money could be drawn from the Treasury to pay for near thlt�e8 of incumbent but it would a in a ,8uc Wurmst is required for clerk sin the second comptroller s office and that it is Thi rrc78a.ryu� actually fil1 the office to entitle Cim Lith ? t0 the 8alary and More especially that some one in that office has the Power ? appoint Uleta id promotions.

Another Point is established to wit that gentlemen who desire to serve their country m offic should apply in the proper Quarter Here after and not harass the Secretary with a narrative of their patriotic services to induce their appointment.

Gentl Kmon will you please Call the Atten Tion of the proper officer if such there be for there has been several notified to no effect to the neighbourhood of e Street Corner of 15th. Not Only do the people occupying the houses on the Avenue have to endure the nuisance of a stable but for the purpose of securing the greater Comfort for its inmates they arc obliged to submit to an embankment so that when it Rains the whole neighbourhood is flooded. For a week past there has been no Way of approach ing one House on 15th Street but by a Bridge. I know i shall get the ill will of the boys for this interference for they Are now sailing about on planks at a rate that puts the hard earned Fame of Collins steamers in jeopardy.

Cott Maun Independent whig. The administration Organ on and the Captain general. The Republic of this morning Bays it is not True that we have Ever defended or apologized for or. Owen we his conduct feeble and reprehensible and we have said that Mere humanity independently of his official position would have dictated the most prompt and Active intercession for Tho unfortunate men who were shot by command of the Captain general. Still further to say that the attempt to excuse or palliate his inaction by pleading the president s proclamation if it is True that he did so was altogether unjustifiable. A jury Man or a judge might As Well re-1 fuse to recommend a convict to mercy or the executive refuse to exercise his prerogative of Pardon because the subject in whose behalf i had been invoked and been called by a Good Many hard names in the indictment. Language that is not Only proper but indispensable to warn men of the nature of a crime and to de Ter against its commission May Well enough find its Way into a proclamation without furnishing the Law of the Case after the Procla mation has discharged its office and in a spite of it have rushed into the crimes and subjected themselves to the penalties it denounced. So with regard to Tho Captain general con aha we think his spire in the butchery of fifty tit wins was Bloodthirsty and inhuman and entirely at War with the spirit of modern civilisation. But for All that we do not propose to Stu Latify ourselves by seeking to represent this As an infraction of our treaty which would justify our government in carrying fire and sword into Cuba to avenge the wrong. It is much easier to create than to Calm in just apprehension or dangerous enthusiasm.
