Count last have already published the fact of the capture and execution of count Rains set Bourbon. Our California files give the following account of Ilia last Fig lit capt.

After organizing his Force he made n demonstration against the government whereupon the Sut ionians turned nut in Force sided by one company of germans under Captain soap Clit and one of Irish and other foreigners with two heavy cannons and one howitzer. Tho germans and Irish stuck closely to the son orians. A desperate conflict took place in the streets of Gua Ymas Between tic opposing forces. The Battery was served with terrible effect by the and Irish and numbers of the French fell at every discharge. Still by Bourbon they charged furiously up to the very Mouth of the Cannon hut were a Iii and again repulsed with great loss.

But Tho germans and Irish with their Cannon could not to dislodged while Tho mexicans taking heart Nas ailed Tho French on All sides. In Tho midst of the conflict Bourbon challenged Tho colonel of tie Sun Orian forces to single combat it was accepted and is they were approaching each other Bourbon was struck ill the neck with in Escopete Ball and fell severely wounded from his horse. Tho son orians germans and Irish set up a shout of Triumph and Tho French immediately ceased firing and surrendered.

This is the Placo where the Riali beat so Many people to death for wearing what is called a know nothing hat shall the Missouri line be re enacted a the Missouri Compromise line Lias no existence except in history. While it was in being we protested strongly against the attempts of those who sought to annul it but now that it no longer exists our relation toward it is changed and we would labor As earnestly to prevent its re enactment As we once did to hinder its repeal. It is no Difili. Cult task to prove the consistency of this course. We opposed the Nebraska Bill chiefly of our dislike to the further and especially to the needless agitation of the slavery question which had so recently been amicably and As there was reason to believe finally disposed of. Now for a similar reason we would oppose any attempt to re enact the Klis Souri line. The sooth has gained nothing and the North has in reality lost nothing by the passage or the Nebraska Bill and we consider it to be Fui better to lot things remain us they Are than to encourage the continuation of a strife which not Only cannot by any possibility result in any Good to either Section but will assuredly prove a detriment to both. We desire to Havo the subject of slavery forever banished from our legislative councils and will support Only those candidates for of lace whether state or National whom we have reason to a Clovo will conscientiously and firmly resist All attempts to revive the agitation of the subject. There was at first reason to suppose that Tho Congress Wlinich finally enacted lilo Nebraska Bill composed of such men. Unhappily the result proved the falsity of this supposition. In future to Trust Liat no candidate for any Impo runt of Lico will receive the support of Union men unless he is pledged to discourage As far As possible the introduction of any question pertaining to slavery into state or nalionnnegislatures.-.jrj1i/irror. The whig courier and enquirer in in article on Tho whig party and the Tribune a attempt to break it up says it is in egregious error to Iii ipos Liat the party of Daniel Webster and lion re Clay has fulfilled its Mission yet or to believe that its All Pitri Otsui is to dwindle into Mere sectional Spile. It knows Bow to Ebido when principle is concerned and there is no Why it should not serve the country is effectually on questions of principle hereafter As it certainly has done heretofore. We know that the whig party is in a new and anomalous position but cannot believe that the Law of its original is radically perverted and that it has degenerated into a Mere sectional fragment. The Bonds of Good Fellowship Between True whigs of the North and True whigs of Tjie South will yet Boro United and stranger events often happen in these Quick changing times than would he the nomination of that Sterling old whig statesman John Bell of Tennessee for Tho next presidency of Trio United Quot states. The Tribune May in whig itself without much of a Effort but to in whig two millions of genuine whig men to strip them of All the associations and influences of a life time is quite a different matter and Tor the present it least it will be useless for our neighbor to attempt it.

Since Tho great american Reform meeting in Vivus Lington a few weeks ago nearly forty clerks have soil i missed their Only fault being that they favored american principles. We should Call such conduct in in Dinin Istrin Tiomi Tho very extreme of malicious proscription and it will certainly tend to in Hilt tar Tho american people against it. It is strange that with the overwhelm icing sentiment of the country so plainly expressed Gen. Pierce allows this silly work to go hardly a Day pastos but a limit some capable industrious clerk Idise Harud for the reason that to is opposed to foreign influence in our country.

The Cincinnati commercial Neutral speaking of the sweeping revolution of parties and popular sentiment in that state says looking at the returns of the election in Olio and elsewhere the Moat remarkable feature in the result is the Force of its revolutionary character overtopping with the triumphant sweep of a dwelling torrent All the boundaries of Larty old and new and marking out for the time being a deep Channel of its own. It is evident now if it was not so before that All the Ordinary party instrumental ties speeches from the stump newspaper declamation and vituperation and that which politicians Call organization have gone fur nothing and that the movement has been purely of and from the people taken up and carried Forward at their own suggestion. I to total ignorance on the part of politicians that such a change was impending a proof that the moving a firings were individual and not collective that it was Tho effect of personal convictions and resolutions rather than of concert or calculation. Judging from Tho returns that have been received it is scarcely probable that a single Iii Ember of Congress of the administration Stripe has Lieen elected in Ohio. This will he a severe blow to Gen. Fierce coming from what has for years been considered one of the surest Nind most fortresses of democracy. Its exam ii will to powerful in other Svitos and we should not be surprised to Sec that executive which came into Power with the control of every stale in the Union go out in a despicable minority. For this to have no regrets to express but there Are some Imong us upon whom the blow will full . Thomao who have made of politics and have fatted on government under the contract to preserve the state in its old subservience to the interests of the administration have for once reckoned without their Host and some of our timid politicians who have been carrying themselves with a High hand under the belief that they were gifted with exhaust Cas stores of talents and popularity will to deprived of h portion of their wind and reduced More nearly to the Ordinary dimensions of humanity. The new York Herald has a scathing article upon the diplomatic career of Sotile remarking meanwhile that his has not been worse than that of Borland. But How instructive a commentary upon the judgment of fierce and Marcy it observes does the conduct of both pc Cut. How can our other ambassadors hold up their Heads when nil the world sees one representative of Tho american people disgraced himself by shielding a malefactor from Justice and instigating the destruction of in innocent and do Fencless town and another has behaved himself so shamefully that a sense of self preservation obliged him to Fly Tho country to which he was sent it concludes what a picture in sober truth do our foreign ministers present at Tho present moment Soule flying Post haste from Spain so As to his dismissal by Espartero Borland hiding somewhere in Arkansas his diminished from popular indignation Belmont the jew setting up an Exchange shop at the Hague others making themselves ridiculous by rating of Universal Liberty and crowned despots and seeking to regulate the destinies of the world in Democrat , reeking with the fumes of Beer and pixies those Only free from contempt or shame who have found safety in sloth and oblivion.

We arc great on the right principles great in and of ourselves.

The splendor of America arises altogether from the Conquest the american people have made Over their soil their circumstances and themselves triumphing thus there a no enemy too at orig for them they Are capable of any Conquest. Self Conquest too has been a double one with us fur achieving greatness within ourselves we have sent the influence of example and ideas abroad to work silently and mightily for us in All the world.

Amolat All the terrible incidents attendant upon the destruction of the Arctic which we have been receiving these two Days past there a one that impresses be with a feeling of Awe and admiration and shows All the world that uie age of heroes is not yet altogether gone by. We refer to the Young Man whose Post of duty throughout All that trying scene was the firing Oft a signal gun at intervals in the Hope of attracting the attention of Vescia from a distance to the scene of the disaster. While All around him were death and despair in bold Relief there he stood like Hope herself with the Calm determination of a True hero discharging gun after inn until the Gallant Alp went Down beneath the Waves. Here was a courage Aud a Manlin Eael a Defi Anco of death and on adhesion to duty we might walk Over the Moe Faedona Batt Enielda in history to look for and not find. The Soldier who braves the King of terrors at the Canon a Morith is animated by a Apeci a of courage improvised for the occasion by the a pomp and circumstances around him. There can be properly no cowards when men Are drawn up in array with drams beating colors flying and Trio Glits of Reward and promotion flitting through the brain if n Victory is won. Bastards dare anything then under such stimulants. But the bravery of Tho Battle Field is not Tho bravery which was shown by our Young hero of Tho wreck. The former is a species of unnatural courage it is of in animal nature but the latter was moral courage of Llie highest and noblest wit i Hia i glitch to seemed to stand on the Quarter of that devoted ship hurling Defiance is it were in the very jaws of death itself.

Importance of the onion is worthy of notice As in extensive article of Enn sumption in this country. It is largely cultivate Oil it Home and is imported to the extent of seven or eight Hundred tons a year from Spain and Portugal. But it rises in Niport Niikoe when we consider that in Ali so Latt ter do untried it forms Ono of the common and Universal supports of life. It is interesting therefore to know that.
