Launching of the ship Pennsylvania. The ibid of july 1837, will Long be celebrated in tiie annals of this state and even of the nation. Never was such a spectacle exhibited on the Delaware As was witnessed on that Day. From an Early hour on the morning until two in the afternoon the entire country All around appeared to be pouring out its whole population into the City of Philadelphia. Even Distant As Well As neighbouring states contributed to augment the unaccountable number that assembled on the interesting occasion. The event became so All absorbing that stores were closed at mid Day and business Genii Tully suspended. It was a perfect Jubilee a onion busses were in requisition for hours carrying the citizens to the All Astruc tic scene. Steamboats were carrying thousands to the Jersey Shore opposite the Navy Yard or taking their stations in the Stream at such Points As Are Favorule for witnessing lie grand spectacle. In the neighbourhood of the Yard he roofs All kinds of buildings Wood wharf lumber Ards and All other elevations were covered with dense masses of spectators. Vessels of every de scrip on were anchored above below and in front and affording to All on Board a commanding View of the whole scene. When contemplated from such a Point he coup a Ceil was one of the most imposing we Ever witnessed. About 15 minutes past 2 o clock Ilie signal gun an ounces. The approaching event and in about ten minutes afterwards the cry was she is moving at that instant the ship was seen Gli slowly and majestically into her destined element and As the Noble Delaware received her into its Nib races shouts went up mingled with the Roar of Cannon that reverberated from Shore to Shore and were prolonged in the far Distant Echo. So gentle was the descent of this Leviathan that at no great distance from the launch the swell in the River was scarcely perceptible and not a vessel appeared to be in the least danger. It is extremely Gratifying to be Able to say at the close of such an imposing spectacle As this that although it May have been witnessed by two Hundred thousand spectators we have not heard of a single Accident connected therewith to Marthe pleasure of so Gratifying a scene. In closing this Brief notice of one of the most splendid spectacles we Ever saw forever expect to see we would express the Hope that this Noble ship will never be employed in foreign aggression but in the Protection of our rights and our s advertiser. Seat of government to be established upon sound principles and to represent faithfully and not to dictate the real policy of the administration and the True sentiment its measures and interest of the great body of its supporters Quot this fling at the Globe is followed up by the following blow aimed with equal directness at its allies the destructive. Quot the necessity also appears of the adoption of More conservative principles than the conduct of those seems to indicate who seek to remedy abuses by destroying the institutions with which they Are that there May be no misapprehension As to the intentions of or. Van Buren and Cabinet respecting Quot the madisonian Quot we Are distinctly informed that Quot Enterprise has not been undertaken without the approbation advisement and soundest minds in the ranks of the democratic Republican parly in the extreme North and in the extreme South in the East and in the West. An association of both political experience and Talent of the highest order will Render it competent to carry Forward the principles by which it will be guided and make it useful As a political Organ and interesting As a journal of news. Arrangements also have been made to fix the establishment upon a substantial and permanent basis. The subscriber therefore relies upon the Public for so much of their Confidence and enc our Agee Tonly As the Fidelity of press to their great National interests shall prove itself entitled to we believe the whole country will rejoice heartily in this change. We Are glad of it As for the removal of any other nuisance and it would give us still More pleasure if we could believe that or. Van Buren Means to keep afar from the whole of that pest Ferous Crew known As the Kitchen Cabinet who have so Long the requisites that he can be elected if he will consent to become a candidate a and no one doubts that he possesses the ability to administer the government As it should be administered or that he has the firmness and the desire to re form the abuses which have crept into our institutions under the past and present corrupt and profligate administrations and which threaten their entire overthrow. Henry Clay is Leader that will never flinch nor rest from the contest until the Lonous work of political redemption is consummated until the Arm of has fallen upon the guilty and punished their wickedness until the political atmosphere is cleansed of All its impurities and peace happiness and Prosperity shall once More smile upon and bless our beloved but now Ucli abused and afflicted country. Quot in Henry Clay the whole country May confide. His mind is not narrowed Down and confined to any Section or division of the Union. As a statesman he knows no North no South no East no West a mountains nor Rivers nor imaginary lines bound patriotism he goes for whole the whole country sustain and redeem itself. Let be the country s candidate the people s candidate in opposition to their oppressors. Twice has Henry Clay when our government was on the verge of dissolution and destruction thrown himself into the breach off Quot ering himself a sacrifice if by that Means he could save country and with a mind and an Energy almost superhuman and that seemed to shape the career of destiny itself restored peace and Union and safety. Not less devoted to country is he now than then not less imminent is the peril nor is he less qualified and nerved for the performance of to e herculean task. In the present crisis he is emphatically Quot Acar a of our ced at no Distant Day to deliver it York Mirror. Disgraced and prayed upon the government. But we confess he have no More Confidence now than the Experiment in the st. Before in the present administration. It is in Louis Republican of the 21st ult. States that the reasonable to expect that the Bramble will Bear Surveyor of the Public lands for that District has grapes. The publisher of Quot the madisonian Quot declined giving any new contracts for surveying subscribes himself Quot Thomas and says he has no Money on hand in Gold Sil j ver or notes to pay for work already done. The indians and the a better currency the j effect in the gentle iian who Quot Money Grippe Quot has lately made its appearance wanted to employ a Good working Mason and among the sacs and foxes. We learn i rom Good Carpenter to go out of the City thought it Worth authority that three or four red of these in j while to advertise. He so staling that he Diane Are now on a visit to Rock Island whither i would pay $12 per month and Board and invited they have come to ascertain the state of the to applications through the Post office. On the first Ney Market with their debtor the govt raiment of Day he received live Lindred and seventy letters saving of Small change. Our political mentors Are All advising us to economise during these scanty times and the advice is Good. It is the duly of every Man and woman too to curtail All unnecessary expenses and we dont think we have heard of a More practical example than was witnessed on tuesday last by a gentleman of this office. At Fishkill a son of the Emerald Isle with companion made application to the ferry boat for passage across the River to Newburg a distance of about a mile and a half the Herriage was nine Pence a Price that Pat had no idea of standing and taking off clothes and giving them to companion he told to carry them Over in the boat while he himself would Cross on own Hook. Accordingly he plunged into the Quot lordly Hudson Quot and set a ample or View Jurg. Some humane Persona thinking it impossible for Patrick to reach port with a very Strong current Down the River followed with a Yawn boat and offered to carry across but he told them to go to the United Stales. They have heard of the bankruptcy of Uncle Sam had just called in to ascertain whether their annuity was soon to be Foith coming in the Quot Coslit National these indians Are said to be thorough going disciples of the hard Money doctrines of col. Benton and refuse to take any thing but the Quot real it is feared that no philosophy will be Able to convince them that government drafts Shin Are the real Quot mint they Are said to be nearly As stubborn noisy and unreasonable As the new York Loco focus. Gen. Streith like Liliian agent passed Down in the Steamboat Pavillion on thursday last from Prairie in Chion where he had been sent for by express. He will probably quiet them. A portion of the annuity due these indians is in consideration of the Quot Reserve Quot which i was ceded to the United states last fail. They say they must either have the Money As agreed upon or their land and threaten Quot in Case tie former is not complied with to urge Indian , and drive the Whites off from the latter. The matter will probably be compromised by Lite government agreeing to feed 1.he indians till Money can be Jadv. Making application for the situations. Jour of com. In. Y. Place we have forgotten. He was Able h said to ferry himself across the Hudson and be hanged to Rhein and accordingly he so without much difficulty. Miss Martineau could not upon More striking Economy than . Y. Gaz. A new Organ of the the signs of the times which we have had Soma by of late there is none More portentous or remarkable than the prospectus which has Joist been issued of Quot in new Organ at the seat of go or. Van Buren has at last made up mind to what had he been imbued with any real self respect or any just regard for the dignity of the government and the feelings and understanding of the people he would have done Long ago he has resolved to strike Down the Globe from its position As the government offi Cial and set up Quot the madisonian Quot in its place the new Organ of the administration s wishes and Wisdom is to be published weekly and Semi weekly from the first of August next and daily from the commencement of the next session of Congress. The prospectus clearly indicates change in the policy of the present administration and the very first paragraph shows that the most persuasive counsellor in inducing this alternation has been fear. After a statement of the disorders which now inflict the country the follow ing sentence occurs Quot in the midst of All there difficulties and embarrassments it is feared that Many of the less firm of the friends of the administration and supporters of democratic Prin Ples Are wavering in to Weir Confidence and beginning without cause to View with distrust those men to whom they have so Long been attached and. Whose Elevation they have Laboured to prone note from honest and patriotic there Are several sentences written in the same spirit and tending to show that Quot the idea of or. Van Buren s friends As a National party Are verging to dissolution Quot with which this prospectus says Quot the opposition Are ,&Quot by no Means confined to the opposition but is held by originators and patrons of the madisonian. Thea comes the important declaration that there is now necessity for a new Organ at the the presidency. Although we Are not in favor of pushing any particular candidate Forward at this Early Day to the exclusion of others and though we Are convinced of the truth of the declaration made by our late convention that Gen. Harrison is the favorite candidate of Ohio and indeed of several other states yet we cannot but deem it our duty occasionally to Lay before our readers whom it is not our object to influence but to inform the opinions expressed by the whig press of other parts of this Union. It is particularly our duty to look to the sentiments and feelings of the whigs of the South on this occasion we cannot expect to succeed without them. It is therefore proper that we should occasionally listen to their suggestions and give them whatever weight they Are entitled to. We therefore insert the following extract from the Charleston A Mercury. The writer addressing the whigs of the North says a Ohio state journal. Quot if we cannot have a Southern state rights Man a if John c. Calhoun by going upon the forlorn Hope of truth is politically dead upon the ramparts Quot like a Gallant Steed fallen in front rank borne Down and trampled by the base rear Quot and can Only Hope for to those who shall look upon these disjointed times with the eyes of posterity. If for a disinterestedness above and a political sagacity beyond the age he is to be sacrificed As a Martyr to principle at least Call upon us to support some one worthy of an enthusiastic Trust. Give us a Man of some Noble traits a bold Brave Gallant High minded Man of Genius who though we see political errors we can yet assure ourselves will do nothing mean. Give us such a Man for instance As Henry Clay. He would have our respect our admiration and we would be sure that this government would always be dignified and respectable there is something heroic in . Not military chieftain heroism a of no but of a kind not at All related to the Humbug family. We Tell the Northern whigs he is the Only Man on whom they can rally a conquering party unless the peo 3le come More suddenly to their senses than we Lavea right to expect and at once do themselves the Honor of rendering to the first Man of the we have lately met with paragraphs similar to the above in several talented and influential Southern papers and must confess we were gratified to find a disposition on Tho part of the South to accept a candidate who would not Only be acceptable to the North and West but who has always held the highest place in their affections and would command their most enthusiastic support were he8.candidate. We give another extract from the Lexington by intelligencer should go for the Man who can save the country. This should be our motto and it should not b9 departed from. That Man we by Lieve to be Henry Clay. We believe that he United the missing tribes. Curiosity which has been on tiptoe to hear the lecture of or. Noah on the missing tribes was gratified at length on tuesday the 14tli ult., when he delivered it before a very crowded audience at Clifton Hall. The subject which is one of history and Reli Giovi was deeply interesting. Every thing relative to Ute jewish nation to that people preserved in a manner so singular the Parent we May say of All religions so venerable for its Auli qui Tyr so Fri Illus of great events which has survived so Many revolutions and Vicissitudes and which even now retains so much of the original fair lib a religion concerning which we hear so much from the pulpit and which is so identified with the origin of Chi Sianily partakes of double interest coming Isom one Olio is so familiar with Ila history and character As or. Noah and who has Ever Laboured to elevate the reputation of people and allay those prejudices which happily have retreated before the March of science and civil nation. J he theory that the american flying artillery Art Experiment. A Frenchman in the texan army a scheming inventive half crazy soul lately made an Experiment of what he a flying artillery which in the sequel Well nigh Cost life. In the first place the Frenchman purchased a mule on Back he placed a six Pound Cannon heavily loaded. The muzzle of the Cannon was pointed in an opposite direction from the head of the mule whether that the mule would prove Mullish refractory and in idling to Advance head first toward an enemy or whether the Gaul thought he could do better by backing up towards some Quot deadly imminent breach Quot we know not. It might have been intended As a kind of Stern Chaser for aught we know. Having fully equipped himself our hero started for a place where he understood some hostile Cuman Chea were lying in ambush. Planting Force consisting of himself Cannon and mule on the Summit of a Hill which commanded a Thicket where the indians were supposed to be lurking he assumed a hostile position by turning the Tail of mule in that direction from Whent a he expected and was anxiously waiting an assault. There he kept ground for a Long time without any manifestations of an attack. At length Small Slock of patience was entirely exhausted and finding that no attack was to be made upon by animate he determined upon giving inanimate creation a Small Sample of flying artillery Usi by Way Ofa flyer. He pointed six Pounder in the direction of the Thicket took bearings made calculations and blazed away balls slugs fee. Went Down one Side of the Hill with the greatest velocity Frenchman mule and six Pounder just As fast Down the other the recoil of the Cannon being so great that it sent the mule Down the Hill with a swiftness of lightning whether he would or not. On finally bringing up after having ran entirely Down the first Hill and half Avay up another the fre Heinan began to collect scattered senses. Finding himself alive he broke out with Quot Sacre i Mondare How Many dam Ingen i kill.

The bridal veil and wedding ring were bought and the wedding cake was actually in the House. At this crisis it was that i had Ione my face full of condolence if it any jul Sucre to my heart which was full of sympathy to pass the vening at her father I not find Helen is Home but there were several persons there casual visitors friends of the family like my . A Preli fusion sadness or dismay sat on every countenance. The controversy naturally to turned upon the All absorbing topic of the Day. Each one had melancholy tale to relate for a Ach one had Hopes. One told of one failure and one an there one gave a list of disasters abroad and another produced an actual record of bankruptcies at Home. It was prophesied that All who had not failed would fail. Quot there is nothing left to fail Quot exclaimed or. J. Striking hands with vehement impatience Quot the Banks have failed and the government has on what article in this country does Iho peo failed every body and every thing has Pailett Quot 7.---- Quot not every thing my dear father Quot exclaimed pie generally pay the highest tax ton courier. On the article of Jackio nismo frentice. North amp Helen who just then entered with her Loyer Hafek face Radiant with an expression that indicated that j her happiness was secured from failure by Bond and mortgage not every thing sir the Moxim has not failed Quot this Happy turn of my Friend gave an impulse to my mind and set me to observing who and what had not failed. I give you the result of my observations in the Hope Attiat wetting following excellent hints Are from the new York Sun Quot few people except builders Are aware of the advantage of Welling bricks before laying them. A Wall 12 inches thick built of Good in Arlar with bricks Well soaked is stronger in every respect than one 16 h May Lead others to look beyond the Shadow of inches thick built up dry. The reason of this is that if the bricks were saturated with water they will not abstract from the mortar to moisture which is necessary to its Crysta Bizalion and on ,., it the contrary they will unite chemically with the indians have descended from the ten tribes of is a and Rael captured by the assyrians is by no Means a novel one. All the missionaries and travellers among the various nations from the time of the Spanish Conquest were of this opinion. There were Many Indian festivals and ceremonies strikingly analogue to those of the jews but it was still continued a vague and indefinite ideas More As a dream singular yet unaccountable. Or. Noah however carries out the theory in bold Relief amounting almost to conviction. He maintains according to Esdras that the tribes apprehensive of falling into idolatry left Samaria to travel into a country wherein Mankind had never dwelt that they passed Thi Ough Persia tartary and China and reached the Behring Straits which being less than thirty Miles wide and frequently Frozen presented no impediment and spread themselves to Cape Horn the More Hardy keeping towards Labrador and Hudson s Bay and the More civilized and refined to Mexico and Peru. He contends that the indians have All the elements and principles of the jewish persuasion Liat their four festivals their sacrifices their following the mosaic Al Laws in regard to eating and abstaining from eating certain things their nume Rous hebrew words their belief in one god and finally their participation in the great covenant commanded by god to Abraham clearly and undoubtedly prove their origin from the missing tribes. These proofs following each other in rapid succession required no ingenuity on the part of or. Noah to sustain position. They were All Strong and emphatic in themselves and were corroborated by numerous missionaries particularly or. Adair who resided Many years among our North Western indians. He evidently proved that the indians were of Asiatic origin and must have from the hebrews the Tarr tars or the malays and of the three nations he offered Strong evidence of their hebrew descent. On the antiquities in Mexico and Central Africa he advanced a most startling theory and contended that the pyramids at Cholula and the great Temple at Palenque near Guatemala were founded by the phoenicians who crossed from the Mediterranean after building Tyre and Carthage and founded an immense Empire in this country. Of the Ophine worship and that a thousand year3 afterwards the tribes passed through Asia to this continent and fell upon the canaanites a second time and destroyed the nation and levelled their cities. Several travellers among them lord As a Rock. On the other hand if the bricks Are put up dry they immediately take All the moisture from the mortar and leave it too dry to Harden and the consequence is that when a building of this description is taken Down or i thimbles Down of its own Accord the Marlar Falls from it like Sand. The Lay a react has looked upon human frailty with a heart to feel without a sigh. Life is fed by a thousand streams yet it is lost j if one be dried up. Its Silver cords Are twisted together with innumerable strings that part asunder if Only one be Brokett. Man in the majesty of strength is frail in the plenty guide of Wisdom and discretion he is weak and thoughtless. In the midst of greatest Security he is surrounded by innumerable dangers. However Long he each ipes yet All suddenly and surely perish at last. Vve Are encompassed by accidents each ready to crush us and our mouldering tenements tremble with every breath. The hand of nature plants the seeds of disease in our constitutions and with the first breath of life they germinate. They grow with our grow tii and strengthen with oar the Earth on which we lean for support is a Volcano the atmosphere we breath is pregnant with death. Health works its own do Cay strength and vigor their own destruction. The food that nourishes the body contains the Poison that effects its solution. The Oul Tiit animates the fire of intellect and of Genius that brightens it wears it out by its own action and consumes with its own brightness. Death walks around us at every step lurks in ambush along our path revels in our Joys mingles in the feast kneels at our devotions and steals upon our slumbers. When is the moment in which we arc Safe the spot in which no danger threatens us from infancy to age from the Cradle to the grave one destiny pursues a one catastrophe reaches us All. Death May linger he overtakes us touch May be gentle but its effect is sure and fatal. Kingsborough Are firm in their behalf that those great antiquities Are the work of the phoenicians but or. Noah is the first who has advanced the belief that those temples and cities were raised by the irruption of the missing tribes from the North West coast. It is singular but by no Means improbable. Our cot try is full of evidence that it was inhabited Many Ages before the disc Yery by Columbus. The lecture throughout was listened to with intense interest by a very enlightened audience and such Hass been the desire to he rep sated that we learn or. Noah May be i defence of discussion i the Calcutta papers on the subject of polygamy has brought Lorth the following defence of it by a native. Quot you English gentleman Are very fond of complaining against the natives of this country because they marry Many wives. If your re Ligion and the customs of tie co Witry Don t allow you to have More than one woman for a wife Why should we be guided by you it rho Are of another nation and Lelia in it is a True using which every body acquainted with Asia knows that there re More women than men in this a i pose More females Are born or because you Entwish m in kill the males in Battle magicians Only can Tell. Then in this Case what is to bet iome of some destined by it he this eclipse. While returning Home i echoed my friends works Quot indeed the has not failed Quot she with her glorious train of stars was looking Down serenely on our troubled City bearing a message of love to the disquieted spirit an Assurance that there is a better Joy awaiting those Quot who have ceased to rejoice Bec Aisic their wealth is great and because their hand has gotten on my Way i met a Friend returning from the theatre Quot Ellen tree succeed Quot asked.
