In a few minutes the a Lek will be completely id. Right. Five Hundred negroes according to the confession or rather the boast of the captian were taken on Board. Of these 158 perished in 53 Days 40 died in one Day. Such is. The state of things on Hoard of a slaver at the present time and we need not explain that the horrors Whiteb await the negro Are much More terrible than in the Days of the legalized slave Trade when the Middle passage the theme of so much indignant eloquence was not rendered More insufferable by the necessity of carrying Large numbers in Small Craft built especially for Speed and with proper arrangements for clean Ineza to health. We Are told that those who survived in this particular cargo nearly All were in the last stage of emaciation and diseases " their thighs about the Sircum Fereole of a Large walking stick Mere skin and Bone eaten up with scurvy and the itch " now what is the inducement for a trader to risk the loss of ship and cargo not to speak of Good name and to become the perpetrator and Spectator of such atrocities the answer is simple enough the Captain states that he has run nine successful cargoes and Ben captured six times and that he has lost �6,000 by this trip but he does not mind it As if he had succeeded in Landing the cargo he would have received �87,000 for the adventure. This is the end of All our exertions. For this it is that we have quarrelled with ther nations or coaxing them compromised our position or rendered our names odious. For this a Squadron is kept on the coast of Africa at a Cost of several thousand pounds annually and a family or two in almost every one s acquaintance has had its victim to fever or aunt Toke. For this we keep settlements Over 40 degrees of latitude sending Cut governors and Bishops to perish amid the malaria of. Festering swamps. For this we have societies and subscriptions at Home and sermons about the Grain of Mustard Send Aud speeches in parliament about Brit Ian s 83gis thrown Over the slave. Brazil and Spain cure As title about our principles As the naked barbarians who Bell their prisoners or subjects to the Skippers. The foregoing sounds pretty Well for the great thunderer he is evidently on the " anxious seat " but that will not do Only As a beginning. He must read his Bible More see what St. Paul St. James and other great lights in the Good Book say on the eur beet he must toll up his sleeves and come to the Mourner s Bench seeking " More Tibt whereby his country May be saved from revolution. Halfway repentance will not fill the Bill. The Good Book enacts that of the Heathen shall be made slaves a Tot an inheritance and Possession for them and their children experience tells us that to buy a poor brutalized idolatrous negro in Africa the naked debased slave of a naked debased negro tyrant holding his life by the tenure of his master s Caprice and emigrate him to a Southern Plantation in the United states where he becomes a Well fed Well clot Chod fat sleek docile and contented being vastly improving his own condition and enabling him to contribute materially to the production Commerce and Well being of the civilized world is i of Only doing a direct Good tothe poor fellow but some people Are Blind enough to believe and the writer is one of that ilk that it is t Ull Fillingane of the great edicts of the almighty wherein Man is commanded to do Good into his fellow. Of course we Are not in favor of opening the slave Trade by no Means 1 that is piracy punishable with death i and is abhorrent to the pious feelings of All Good men especially to the Blear eyed exceedingly pions Law abiding Union Loving slavery hating abolitionists of Boston and regions near by. The lowest most degraded being on Earth if a wild half Baboon negro in Africa is infinitely a thousand times better to do in the world and actually a More respectable individual and a better Christian than it is possible for a negro Ever to become As a slave to White folks Down South i Snow is the Only deduction to be drawn from the Brilliant harangues of Sumner and his abolition coadjutor. The Southern people May condole themselves with the reflection that it were better for them to be responsible for slavery As it is than it is for the new englander to be accountable for the Peaky ratings and mischievous ravings of so Many Learned fools among fiem. But to to serious. The London times admits that the Pertina Cious efforts of great Britain to break up the slave Trade a a failure and that it has Only increased its hocror6, by causing increased caution to avoid detection. It admits that the wants of the civilized world demand More slave labor in the tropics to produce great Staples of life which White men cannot produce. The whole continent South of Texas is going to waste for the want of White intellects and negro labourers. Why does not the times go the whole truth and admit that the Bible justifies slavery that the negro can never be better off than under a mild system of slavery that he this does most Good for himself his Superior fellow the White Man add that Only in this condition can he end his posterity rely upon being taught the truths of christianity and of living permanently in a Christian land Why not admit these facts with another of vast importance to Mankind Viz that the products of slave labor directly Ood indirectly sustain the Commerce of the world and thereby become the pioneers of civilization first and secondly if christianity in its remotest Parte ? when the thunderer becomes total.,$80,816 88 expenses for same time have Beer running expenses 8,294 67 repairs on rolling Stock. 1.667 00 do do track. 2,566 05 office expenses. 822 95 damage for goods lost a. 607 s3 total.818,457 99 leaving us a total earned profit for eight months of $17,858 89. Hon. Charlest. Cleave land. We learn from the Gazette that this gentleman made a speech " Denning Bis political position in Liberty a few Days since. Or. Cleaveland was emphatically a Leader of the american party in the last legislature. We have on several occasions frankly awarded to him Theo Redit of honesty Superior Talent and very sound Southern views on the great Issue. We regretted that he blood opposed to our views on the position of the Only two parties in the South. It seems however that the late presidential contest Sod the developments of the times have caused or. Cleaveland like Many other Cool headed dispassionate but patriotic men to grasp at facts As they exist and to Beo orae convinced that within the folds of the democratic party is the Only place for a Southern Man or a constitutional Northern Man to stand. He regards the american party As powerless for Good and reduced in principle to a single idea the Extension of the period for naturalizing foreigners and assumes that no party Ever Hab or Ever can sustain itself upon one single idea or Point. He feels compelled As a Southern Patriot to shake off All suck lob and to enrol himself As a " High private among the democracy of Texas. He asks no office refuses to run for the legislature but will do All in his Power to Aid that organization which he regards As the Only one capable of guiding the government through the perils ahead. He declares his intention to vote for the entire democratic ticket in August from a firm conviction of duty to his country. He Hopes to seem Sny of his late political Brethren do the same. We do not Welcome or. Cleaveland merely because he has become a Democrat not at All. But we do so because we have As we said whet party spirit ran High and he web in the opposite ranks entire Confidence in the integrity of his purpose and the Independence of his character to say nothing of his acknowledged ability. He sustains the High opinion we had formed of his character by refusing to become a candidate when his reelection of we Are informed would have been certain. so Tom of rcia�--.1-Eotbpearly the morning.

John Caldwell was probably announced As a candidate r lieutenant governor without his own consent though we have seen nothing from himself declining the nomination. Thos. F. M Kinney is a candidate for the legislature in Travis county. The statement that or. M Kinney a a whig is erroneous. He came to Texas before the organization of the old whig party and in this country has always claimed to be Independent of All party organizations. Last year he run in opposition to the k. Nominee and he is now out in opposition to the democrats or rather we suppose he runs without regard to either party. There appears to be some disaffection in the democratic ranks in Travis regarding the election of representative. Of Edward b. Hord Jack r. Everitt John f.

Sufficiently strengthened in mind and body to imbibe the whole truth he May despite the uplifted hands and horrified countenance of the great Lodi rubber headed Sumner conclude that in so far As the wants of civilized White men demand the labor of those wild slaves in Africa on the tropical soil of America it were bettor to regulate their importation by Wise and humane Laws to require them to be brought in clean airy vessels Well fed and not crowded like rats in a bold 2 feet six inches High where they smother to death like sheep with the rot. He May also conclude that a slave in Africa is no Mere a slave in America nay might possibly be persuaded that it were Wise humane and worthy of a Christian to Rescue a fellow being though he be Black from the horrors of wild african slavery and give him the advantages the patriarchal Protection and to him at least blessings of Ameri Eon african slavery. But then it is awful 1 terrific 1 and unpardonable blasphemous 1 to think that the slave Trade in ant form is not the shortest and most direct Road to the eternal Lake of fire and Brimstone. It is of course it most be a great Leal More wicked now. Since Sumner was Boru than it was when the new England puritans were engaged in Tho business and coining Money by it 1 it is wicked to think of it i the celebrated staked Plain is an almost uninterrupted table extending 8u0 Miles South from the Paralle of 35dcg. 11 min. North latitude with an extreme breadth near its Middle of 180 Miles. It is bounded entirely on the West by the Rio Pecos and from the Eastern and South Eastern edges Issue innumerable Springs and rivulets. It a the Fountain head of the red River of the Mississippi the Brazos the Concho and the Colo Rado of Texas. The northernmost part is represented to be 4,000 feet above the level of the sea but the highest Elevation observed by col. Gray in crossing it was 2,995 feet. This shows a gradual slope towards the parallel of s2deg. Under the government of old Spain a Trail Over it from n. W. To s. E. Connected the military posts and missions of new Mexico with Liose of san Saba and san Antonio in Texas. Long stretches slightly undulating without land Marks caused the mexi cans to Plant stakes fur the purpose of indicating the approaches to water and thus originated the name Llano Estacada or " staked Plain " it is by no Means a desert or Barren waste for with exceptions of narrow belts less repossessing there Are vast Fields of Fine grazing lands where Antelope dear and other game Are Seldom out of sight it is True that no Timber is Reen except Here and there a stunted me quit and no Stit Jauts flow Over it but in the Sand Hills inexhaustible quantities of the purest water a found.

Winthrop of Massachusetts in Hia address at the musical festival in Boston last week alludes to the contemplated submarine Telegraph in these words of Christmas eve in Tho your 1814, the treaty of peace Between England Aud the United states was signed at Ghent a worthy commemoration of that blessed event when the Herald Angels were heard singing to the shepherds on the Plains of bet Lehem peace on Earth Good will towards but that treaty was not known on this Side the Ocean for six or Sev a weeks after its Date. The great Battle of new Orleans As you Well know was fought at least two weeks after that treaty of peace was signed. Our modern system of railroads steamers and telegraphs might have saved that effusion of fraternal blood might have deprived individual heroes might have deprived our country and its history of All the glory which belonged to that really great Victory. If the Gigantic Ocean Harp which in at this moment in process of being Strung whose deep Diapason is destined to produce b More magical Musio on Tho sea than mythology or modern fable Ever ascribed to fire Mermaid or Arion if Tho mysterious Gamut of that profound sub Marine chord had been in successful operation then As we Hope it soon will be Between St. John s and Valentia Bay those Cotton Bug ramparts at new Orleans might never been celebrated in in Story while of those who so Galan Tlly defended them Many would not have been Laid so Low and some perhaps would hardly have risen to High. Singular effects or singular occurrence says the Detroit free press look place a Short time since at the locomotive works illustrating the powerful effects of electricity. A locomotive was being moved from the manufactory to the Central depot and had arrived in the Middle of the Street when suddenly All hands dropped the bars with which they were moving the machine and fell Baik in amazement. Resuming them at the order of the Man in charge they applied them again to the wheels and again fell Back paralysed the instant they touched the Iron. The director of the Job caught up one of la e bars and making a Savage thrust planted it under a wheel preparatory to giving a huge lift. No sooner had it touched however than he saw it a All from h grasp to the ground As it had done in every Case before. Such singular occurrences excited attention and an examination was made As to the cause when it was found that the locomotive in passing under the Telegraph line had come in Contact with a broken wire that Hung sufficiently Low to reach it. The whole mass of Iron composing the locomotive had thus become charged with electricity which bad communicated itself to the bars that the men held in their hands and caused the effect above described. The wire was then removed and the difficulty obviated in a moment. Extensive journals give account of a Gigantic course of operations Viz that of casting a Mountain into the sea of Holyhead to form a breakwater 120,000 tons of Rock were recently thrown Down by one blast making 6,000,000 Toos which have thus been dislodged. In the mining operations which take place for this purpose the Quantity of Gunpowder used annually exceeds 500,000 pounds or More than 250 tuns and uie store deposited in the sea for the formation of the rumble foundations and embankment exceeds yearly 1,000,000 tons. In addition to Tho Agency which Gunpowder affords for the construction of this breakwater there Are employed upwards of 1200 men a Large number of locomotive engines stationary engines travelling cranes with steam Power and every modern appliance which mechanical skill can bring to Bear. This great work is the complement of the tubular Iron Bridge which spans the Menal Straits Holyhead being the Point of departure for Rel old. 3f the new volume entitled " Liberty and slavery from Tho logical and gifted pen of professor Bledsoe of the a Diversi y of Virginia. In a work that should be carefully read and pondered by every Southern , who would be really informed As to the political moral and religious foundation upon which Tho institution of slavery rests. We have read its 400 pages with great interest and Arote from the pleasant task if possible More firmly convinced than Ever of the utter fallacy and rottenness of the anti slavery dogmas which have brought distraction to our Iree and otherwise Happy country. Could the Northern agitators be induced to become sane for one week and read Bledsoe or some other orthodox author on the subject All among them who Are nutcase hardened and Given Over to evil would cease wrangling and become Loyal and no doubt  respectable " citizens of the a Outry. But Many southerners who Are Strong pro slavery men and keen to own the sons of Ham do not fully understand the question or the Points upon which slavery May be successfully defended in every enlightened country and hence it is that All should read at least some one of the Able unanswered and unanswerable works on the subject. Bledsoe s is one of them a handsome volume a few copies of which May be had of j. M. Jones strand at $1 per copy. Bledsoe scatters the arguments of Wayland Channing Chase Sumner and All such to the four winds and yet he leaves a vist Deal unsaid. 1 could t realize i was my eyes Felt glue ish.
