Indianapolis Journal (Newspaper) - October 8, 1846, Indianapolis, Indiana Imana state Journ Almonda a october the in Diana state journal is published weekly at the following terms 1 copy for 82,00 3 copies for 5,00 5 copies for 8,go to copies for 15,00tri-weekly, per annul 83.5oo session papers will be sent during the session of the next legislature at the following terms weekly 1 copy for 80,50 3 copies for i,00 Tri weekly 1 copy for so,75 4 copies for 82,00 payments to be made in All cases in Advance. We ask for the Quot Jou Knai Quot an Extension of its circulation in some degree commensurate with the increased expense and labor incurred to Render it worthy of the patronage of the people. Congressional and legislative proceedings will be Given with accuracy and promptness and All the latest news of the Day will be found in its columns. We ask each of those who Are now subscribers to Send us at least one additional name. Address John d. Defrees. P. S. Editors with whom we Exchange in the state inserting the above several times in their papers shall have the favor reciprocated whenever in our Power to do it. Tri weekly state journal. The present population business and rapidly growing Prosperity of Indianapolis demand the permanent publication of a Tri weekly newspaper. Confidently relying on the willingness of our citizens to give the necessary patronage to such an Enterprise we this Day enter upon it with a determination to do All that Industry and Energy can accomplish to Render the paper worthy tie patronage it May receive. A weekly paper in a City of this size looses much of its interest be Ltd a it reaches its readers because much of the news it May contain has been received in some outlier manner previous to its publication. A Tri weekly will enable us to give All the current news of the Day in a few hours after it is received. Other considerations prompted this undertaking. For More than a year our neighbors of the Sentinel Quot have published a Semi weekly by which Means they have justly secured for themselves the reputation of being enterprising in their vocation. We Are not disposed in this respect to a yield to any one. Again our rapidly increasing advertising patronage prevented our giving in the weekly As much Reading matter As we desired although we have always Given As much As any other paper in the state. Now As Many advertisements will have Only an occasional insertion in the weekly it will be hereafter More interesting to the general Reader. The completion of our rail Road which will take place Early in the Spring will bring among us business men who understand the advantages to be derived from liberally advertising and we want to be ready to accommodate them. Quot the population is now increasing and will continue to More rapidly than Ai any former period of our history and by such immigration we Hope to add largely to our subscription list. And finally we believe it will result to the Mutual advantage of publisher and patrons and therefore Are willing to make the Experiment. This and the two succeeding numbers will be sent to our City weekly subscribers instead of the weekly and such As May prefer the Tri weekly can substitute it for the weekly by informing the Carrier of their wishes or by calling at the counting room of the office. The terms at which we furnish the Tri weekly Are such As ought to induce All City subscribers to give it a preference Over the weekly. Surely there Are but few who would not rather pay three dollars a year for a paper three times a week than two dollars for a expect to place the names of Many of our citizens who do not now take the weekly upon our Tri weekly list that it May be examined this number will be left with Many persons who Are not subscribers. Should they wish it Cou Liqued they will please hand in their names. Although tile size of the Sheet on which it will be published May look Small to those who Are accustomed to larger sheets yet on comparison they will find More Reading matter in it than in Many papers of far greater dimensions. There will be one fourth More Reading in three Tri weeklies than has heretofore been Given in the weekly. New York whig convention. The whigs of new York assembled in convention at Utica on the 23d ult. Every county in the state was represented. Two informal ballots were taken for governor with the following result 1st. 2d. Nimard Fillmore. 55 61 John Young. 36 44 Ira harris21 10 William Duer,.3 3 John a. Collier,.2 1 John c. Clark,.2 1 Blank. 0 3 the adjourned to dinner reassembling at clock when a third ballot was taken with the following result John Young -.76 Millard Fillmore .45 scattering3 the informal meeting was then dissolved. The convention was then organized by the Choice of appropriate officers. Or. Babcock of Buffalo stated that the name of or. Fillmore had been used Gamst his own wishes and feel pigs and that or. Fillmore himself desired the nomination of another individual John Young a devoted and True he moved should be unanimously nominated for governor. This motion was carried by acclamation. Hamilton fish of the City of new York was afterwards nominated for Lieut governor. What do the Quot bime Yues Quot expect to accomplish by the adoption of such resolutions As the following which we clip from the published proceedings of a convention recently held at Westfield in this state ? resolved. That any Church which makes the least pretend the Church of god should peremptorily and without delay excommunicate every slave Holder and apologist for slave holding from within her pales no matter what titles office station or rank such person May hold or what apparent Virtues or talents he May possess or develop. To All these specious pleas this anti Christian White washing there is one concise significant and irrefutable reply he is a Mot stealer. O to Morrow week the Otilio elections will take we must confess we Are not so confident in the election of Webb As Many of our friends seem to be the Issue which he has made in relation to a repeal of the Black Laws will we fear deprive him of Many votes and he will gain nothing by it we think judge Vance Loco will beat or. Fisher in the Butler congressional District although there is a whig majority. When the whigs of that District failed to nominate the Gallant Campbell who had battled for the cause when there existed no Hope they prepared the Way for their defeat. It we notice that Hon. C. B. Smith has been addressing his constituency in different portions of his District since his return from Washington. We need not say what is admitted by those who have heard him that Ivor. Smith has few superiors As a popular orator. He has acquired the reputation and deservedly too of being one of the most ready Oft hand and eloquent debaters of Congress. This much wag accorded to him a few Days since in our presence by one of his Pem Coralic colleagues. Singular see it stated by a correspondent of that excellent Little paper the Baltimore Clipper that a or. Hugh Kinney died several years ago leaving an annuity of about eight handled dollars per year to a Church in Hagerstown my on the condition that the congregation sing Jio thing but the psalms of David the Rev or Tustin recently chaplain to the Senate has been called to that Church As its pastor.

Dwight preached his famous discourses is now the roof of a heu Lio use in Allingtown Connecticut news by this morning s mail. The great Western arrived at new York on the 30tii ult. At 1 o clock p. M. We give the following summary of news condensed from the Baltimore Sun of the first inst. The markets for All descriptions of american produce were advancing in Price. The news from India is of unexpected interest. There is a Prospect of a renewal of the War on the Subtle go. The failure of the potato crop is Universal. The reports from every part of the United kingdom Are appealing whilst letter after letter from the continent details the ravages this strange and unaccountable disease has made in France Belgium Holland and Prussia. The Grain crops in the United kingdom Are not More Tolian an average either in Quantity or Quality. They must Liere fore look to other countries for a Supply sufficient for the Large and increasing consumption that is now going Forward. Again the accounts from France As to the Harvest in that countr a Are most distressing. A very Large Quantity of wheat will therefore be required for immediate want All Over the North of Europe for the Staple article of consumption has yielded miserably Short. Speculative purchases were made of barrel flour both free and bonded from the 4th to the 8th inst. In Indian Corn there has been an extensive inquiry and the Stock being much reduced prices have advanced 3s. To 4s. Per or. On the 8th instant Large operations were renewed. Wheat sold readily at an Advance of fully 6d per Bushel on tie rates of that Day week. Free four May be quoted at an Advance of 3s to 4s per barrel Clear and bonded nearly As much. The total Advance on Indian Corn from the 1st to the 8th inst was 6s. Per Quarter and of meal 2 to 3s. Per Load at yesterday s Market a few thousand bushels of foreign wheat was taken for Irish account but having a slender attendance of town and country Millers the demand for consumption was limited. The general run of Irish flour although in slow request maintain late prices and prime Marks of new were held on rather higher terms whilst Canadian and states duty paid moved less freely than before but nearly sustained their previous value. From the Baltimore Clipet r. The Home Market. The Effort is being made to convince the Farmers of this country that the Home Market for their produce is of Little importance and that it is their True policy to favor free Trade so that they can obtain the Supply of England with bread i stuff a &c., advanced Price in flour and Grain is urged As an evidence of the advantages which Are to result from Low duties but a Little consideration will Shew tie utter fallacy of this position. The present demand for american produce in England is attributable not to the increased liberality of Liat country in her commercial principles nor yet to the passage of our new Tariff Quot act but to necessity. The failure of the potato crop in Europe has rendered if indispensable that food shall be procured and As it can be obtained for , cheaper from the United states owing to defective har est3 in Europe than elsewhere we have the Supply. This we should have had without the passage of our Tariff Quot act but that this advantage will be hereafter continued cannot be expected As other nations can produce cheaper than we can and Are nearer to the English Market. Our main Reliance must be upon the Home Market and if we permit that to be destroyed by ruining our manufactures we shall find that we have committed a suicidal act. As connected with this subject and containing facts of great interest to the agriculturist of Liis country we copy the following tables and comments from a communication which appears in the Philadelphia chronicle. The following table from Quot parliamentary reports Quot will show the prices of wheat per Bushel in the in Cipal marts of Trade on the continent of Europe from 1830 to 1643, inclusive years.

General Tai for Irith tin ire thou Ioil my on Chr myrrh fur scr Alroy Shpur Tiric of the Halti Inore battalion Kirk unix ital Ltd Atli i no ii i re Clemul Wnm urn. Liiri try . The Stea Nishii Telos Fra arrived it new Orleans on the i8lh sept. With acl Virci from i tie Tali matai Noras o the Loti a Iii i Alveston to the Lily inst. The news is highly inti rest Iii. A e copy from the Dilta on the Goth inst., general Taylor crossed that sail Juan and then on the 7th took up the line of ii Barcli for Serivo where Gen. Worth Willii his rom Maitil has halted. Hays regiment was to have left China for the same Desdia Tiomi intending to reach there with Kim. Taylor in his March is prepared for any emergency either in Advance or a Retreat. He permitted no Soldier or Olicer to take More baggage with him than he can carry on his Back. A Numier of steamers had reached Alata moras with the a Gage ail Tui i Cartel of the Zaha Lores was converted into a Deriot for it. All the Sui plies for the advancing army so far have been sent on by pack mules and the ii feral exp Iscis to have 30 Days provisions for 12,000 men at Seralvo when he reaches it. The general impression is that he will Liere make a halt and not Advance further till he has advices from Quot Washington. ing the reports of the Advance of a a mexican Force Between san Luis Potosi and Satillo the general believes lie can enter Monterey and even Saltillo without encountering any . The troops now on tie Road Between Camargo and Monterey number near 12,0 10 Nono were suffered to go but such is were Able and willing to stand the fatigues of a Long March. This had the elect of reducing considerably the Volunteer regiments few of them exceeded 50 1 Strong a Many of them non shered even less. These regiments Are one from Tennessee one frown Mississipp i one from Kentucky one from Ohio and one from Texas Hay the Baltimore battalion and a a a Art of the texan infantry reorganized and Mcculloch s and Lille Ujiie s rangers. The Telegraph had 011 Board at the time of her departure from the Brazos over100 sick and discharged soldiers. She landed at Lacaba a company of germans disc aimed from the texan infantry Aud also a company at Galveston from the same command and brought up to this place Over 200, most of whom have been a prostrated by disease. On tie evening of the 16th, a Soldier from Nashville tenn., named James i off Quot Man jumped overboard and was drowned and another by the name of Benjamin Hartwell died a few hours after. The Brig a impresario arrived at Tabacca Bay on the 10th, having experienced a heavy Gale in which she was forced to throw overboard her deck Load of mules numbering 28. The Brig Henry arrived the Day after encountered the same Gale and had thrown overboard 23 mules. In the same Gale the Schr. Edward Tillotson bound to this port from Bazos St. Jago with 68 discharged Volin ticks was wrecked at the Mouth of the Sabine but All hands were saved. During the passage and previous to the wreck six soldiers died of fever. There were near 600 sick volunteers in the Hospit is at Camargo and they were dying very fast. So Many were sick that it required near a whole regiment to attend to them. Those whom the tennesseans left behind seemed to be Par tic ulary unfortunate for they had to Call for the Ala Bainian to attend to the living and Bury their dead. As fast As men get Able to leave the hos intal they Are discharged and sent Home. In fact. Gen. T. Shows a disposition to discharge All volunteers who Are discontented and wish to return to their Homes. Though the number of patients in the Hospital at Matamoras is larger than at Camargo the mortality is greater at the latter place near 3 to 1 those who Are unaccustomed to a Southern climate when once prostrated by the fever Seldom regain their former strength on the Rio Grande without a change of atmosphere they die off quickly else become so enfeebled that they Are unable to help themselves. A person who has visited the hospitals at the different posts has said that if one half of the Northern and Western volunteers who went to the Rio Grande Are effective men on the 15th october it is More than he looks for. Gen. Patterson has been left in command of All the country from Camargo to the Mouth of the River ant has been instructed by Gen. Taylor to Issue an order prohibiting the Entrance of strangers into the River and at . This order was brought Down to capt. Ogden by the officers of the Lii Neville. Llie Refore any person who has not already an established business in the country will it rather difficult to land there at least such is the opinion now. A different interpretation of the order May however be Given. Gen. Butler was the Man Gen. Tay Ord signed leaving command of the lower country but is Patterson did not reach Camargo As soon As was expect Ely the order of thugs was changed. Gen. P. Is represented As being very much mortified at not being allowed to accompany the and Vaidic. Ampudia has issued another extraordinary proclaim a warning the citizens on pain of death not to barter with the americans and the Alcalde of Camargo had also put a Quot Bando Quot prohibiting the irom working on our steamboats. Some of the deck hands accordingly ceased their labor but an intimation from some of their employers that the functionaries might be brought in close proximity with a Lazo he relented and the men resumed their labor. Extract of a letter dated Steamer col. Cross sept. Amp the 1846 Gen. Taylor left for Monterey on the 5th. The whole of the staff and other invited guests took dinner on the col. Cross Twenty two in All being invited by the whole souled capt. J. A. Pratt. When dinner was Over they commenced their March to join the army. Next Day Lieut. French returned for More ammunition a report having reached the general that Santa Anna was on his March for Monterey with 15,000 men and that All their forces were of the March to concentrate at Monterey to give the general a warm reception. Major Gen. Patterson is in command of the whole troops. Our Friend Britton is stationed at Camargo As commissary. The whole of Gen. To s Force has gone about 6,000 in All. Col. Baler will get Well. Nothing new. Julian. Isabel sept 11th, 1846. Editors of the Delia gentlemen i have just time to Send you the latest news. Taylor left Camargo for Monterey with 6,000 men on the 5th. Ampudia has arrived at Monterey with a Large Force reports say from 4000 to 10,000 men and 10 pieces of artillery. He has completely fortified the place. His proclamation has been received in which he threatens to shoot any mexican who shall hold communications with the americans. I remain yours d. P. S. At the last accounts Taylor s head quarters were at Seralvo half Way Between Camargo and Monterey. Letters received from above anticipate a desperate resistance at the latter place. The Campaign has commenced in Earnest. This intelligence arrived by the Camargo mail last night. I have barely time to write this much As the Telegraph leaves in three minutes. Arrest of col. learn from a passenger on the Telegraph who left Camargo on the 7th instant that just As he was on the Point of starting Down the River an express arrived at that town with the intelligence that col. Harney had been arrested when four Days on his March from san Antonio toward Monterey. It appears that general Taylor and Wool having been apprised of his Advance immediately after it took place Fortl with dispatched an officer in Pursuit of him by whom he was soon overtaken and placed in arrest on the charge of disobedience of orders. Colonel Harney and his command were marched Back to san Antonio where he remains in custody. The worst part of the Story is that on his return to san Antonio a portion of his baggage train was surprised and Cut off by the mexicans. We can find no Good authority for this Story although we have heard it from several distinct sources. We set it Down As a Quot Camp new establishment. called in a few Days ago at the tobacco and Cigar establishment of r. Irwin amp co. Opposite Brownings. Every thing about it looks right. We cannot speak of our on knowledge As to tiie Quality of their cigars and tobacco As we neither Chew nor smoke but a Friend of ours who is a judge assures us that they Are of the very bests much better than any Ever before brought to this place. In 1830, in 1831, in 1832, in 1833, in 1834, in 1835, in 1836, $1,15 1,18 1,15 1,13 1,08 1,19 1,4-1 in 1837, in 1838, in 18.39, in 1840, in 1841, in 1842, in 1843, $1,83 1,54 1,42 1,10 1,03 1,16 ,00 the general average of the Afore named prices is $1,25, being 27 cents More than the average per Bushel at the aforementioned parts in Europe. These show demonstratively that in the first Cost of the Grain we Are not Able to come into fair Competition with our transatlantic wheat growers. And the disadvantages would be still greater for us if the relative distances of the great wheat markets from London were brought into the account for instance Dantzic is 1,500 Miles from London. Hamburg is 500 do do Amsterdam is 400 do Antwerp is 300 do Odessa is 3,800 do new York is 3,600 do Philadelphia is 3,800 do Baltimore is 4,000 do these tables Are indisputable and self evident and demonstrate to the Farmer that his Home Market is his Best Market and therefore should be protected by a protective Tariff Quot do do do do do do one of those very hard eases which occasionally occur under system of imprisoning witnesses is noticed in the n. Tribune a Youngve Oman was confined in the City prison for three months As a witness in a Case where the defendants were on bail and when the Day for trial came round it was dismissed. Of Quot it is said by a Washington correspondent of the u. S. Gazette that at a Cabinet meeting recently held it was determined to order Commodore Connerty attack Tampico immediate la the judicial us system in new state convention which has been for some time in session for the amendment of the of new York has completed its modification of the judiciary system. According to the new arrangement there is to be a court of appeals composed of eight judges four of whom Are to be elected by the people of the state and four selected from the justices of the supreme court having the shortest time to serve. The term of the elected judges is eight years. The supreme court is to be of thirty two justices. For the organization of this court the state is to to divided into eight judicial districts in each of which four of Toliese justices Are to be elected to hold their offices for eight years. Each of these justices is to preside at circuit and sit in Banc to hear the argument of causes on review. The county court is to be composed of one judge cd cited by the people of the county for four years. Impeachments Are to be tried before a court composed of the president of the Senate a majority of the Senate and a majority of the court of appeals. The legislature is authorized to establish tribunals of conciliation but such tribunals Are to have no Power to Render judgment to be binding unless the parties voluntarily submit their matters of difference and agree to abide the judgment. I he new York evening Post objects to some of the features of this system not indeed to the plan of organization in any of its parts but to the District Mode of electing the judges. It would have the District judges elected by the general vote of the whole state under tie system As it is now devised that portion of the judiciary which is to be elected in whig districts will be entirely in whig hands. This is the grievance. Quot those who suppose Quot says the Post Quot that a judicial election will differ from any other political election that it will not be managed in the same Way be contested in the same Way and decided in the same Way Are endowed with a degree of option ism that we Admire More than we can imitate they Are in fact Ripe for that political millennium when the democratic lion and the whig Lamb Are to lie Down together and the anti rent Wolf and the abolition kid shall browse Side by Side on the same salary. The supposition that in some of the anti rent districts Thunder might be put upon the Bench where he lately stood at the bar is met by the new York Globe with the observation that if any District should see fit to elect big Thunder As a judge Trio fact of election would prove him to be the Best Man for the place in said District. Hit Spencer has been acquitted by a jury q the plea of in sanity from Chr Laporte Tocsin. North Indiana my Joti Odist episcopal con furl Sci. This body closed its session at this place on tuesday the 22nd sept. The session was an interesting Cue and Bibisi Luss of considerable Imp Ortance transacted. No report having been furnished us of its proceedings we Are not Able to so Peak As fully As we could wish of doings. The conference icon curved by a vote of 60 to 2. On a Resolution of the Akron a Orth Ohio conference calling for such an to the discipline As would exclude from Church membership All slave holding citizens of any state j territory or District whose Laws permit the emancipation of slaves. It Wii also decided by a Large majority to establish a Quot female College Quot at fort Wayne an agent to collect funds and a Coni Mitt e to obtain a charter were appointed. That plan is to be similar to that of the Asbury University at Greencastle. No debt for its construction is allowed to be incurred. The Large vote by which it was determined to locate this institution is a Gratifying evidence that the methodist denomination Are determined to do their full share in the education of youth. For our own part we would prefer that the state should make provisions for the thorough education of every child in it and in this manner a preclude the necessity of institutions depending mostly for their support upon Charity and religious denominations. It is to the credit of fort Wayne that she has contributed so toward the erection of the institution. The sum of $10.500 was subscribed by her citizens. The Hon. Am. Rockhill state senator and w. G. Ewing Esq. Were present As delegates from that place and addressed the conference ably upon the subject we heartily wish the project the Amide Success.

Butler Theani Mitrof thu Bond holders will return in the Steamer of the 19th inst. How Long will the War last the War in which we Are now engaged we unnecessarily and wrongfully brought upon the country by the act of one whom parly madness placed in a position far above his capacity to occur Jim with any credit to himself or to the country. The great majority of the people begin to see and know this to be True and the question Quot How Long will the War last Quot is More and More frequently asked every Day. It is a dial cult question to answer. An attempt to do so is at Best but conjecture. Judging from present appearances we Don t believe it will end for years. Our government has been informed that our proposition to renew negotiation will be referred to tie mexican Congress which will assemble next december. In the meantime our army is to be marched into the Interior. What will this Avail ? it will not meet a hostile enemy. It cannot murder an unresisting people in cold blood it cannot Burn their houses and Rob them of their property without justly calling Down upon us the execration of Lii whole civilized world. What is to be done under such circumstances March our army to the City of Mexico. Will that Quot conquer a peace Quot suppose we take Possession of every town in the Republic. To keep them in our Possession we must Call into service an additional number of troops. They must be supplied with provisions. That cannot be done from this country because of a want of the Means of transportation. We will be compelled to Purchase of the mexicans at whatever Price they May demand. In this Way the War will be to them a matter of an immense debt will thus be created which must be paid by the labor of the people. Let them reflect that the condition in which we now find ourselves has been produced by those now in Power. The California ship Susan Drew cleared at new York on tuesday morning for Oregon. She had on Board 250 men of col. Stevenson s command. The n. Express says that the whole regiment is in a state of Mutiny and expire uses the opinion that the ships in which they Are to go will never Eracli their destination. The n. Tribune has the following account of what occurred in the regiment on Friday last it seems that the men were All drawn up on Friday for the purpose of receiving their Bounty Money. Company c was first marched out and duly paid $84 per Man by the paymaster. They found however that Liis was not exactly the end of the fun and that the remainder of the entertainment was by no Means so agreeable. From the paymaster s table they were conducted into an adjoining room where a Bill of $42 for clothing was presented to each Man. This clothing or some of it had not been even seen by the men but they Wert told that it was All nicely packed away for them on Board the ship that was to Bear them to the scene of their glorious achievements. Twenty five of the men refused Point Blank to pay the Bill offering to pay for that which they had worn and for any other thai the Law should decide they were bound to take. The clothes they had already received were so badly got up so poorly made and of such miserable material that the Hay tie n government would have rejected it coarse red flannel cuffs and All. About forty of the company however paid and the others were sent to the guard House for disobedience of orders company a was then marched up and refused to a Man to pay the $42 clothing Bill and were sent Back to their tents and a guard placed Over them. Company k also unanimously refused but instead of putting them under guard he told them that they were disbanded a thing which col. Stevenson has probably no right to make True. The outstanding men have offered to have a single Case tried by a jury and that the decision whatever it May be All the others will accept and abide by. This however has been declined. The St. Louis new Era remarks that Quot ten times As much property has been destroyed by snags As would put the Western Rivers in Fine order Quot and gives a list of forty one steamboats snagged and sunk in the Missouri River alone As evidence of the truth of the statement. Many of these boats were new and valuable and when sunk Many of them were filled with Rich and costly goods or valuable produce. Many other boats have been sunk in the Missouri which Are not now recollected by the St. Louis editor and a Large number have been sunk and subsequently raised in a damaged condition with the loss of their cargoes. Sickness in the sickness in the army particularly among the volunteers is said to be very severe. The n. O. Picayune of the 20th, says Quot we have conversed with an officer of Kentucky volunteers direct from Camargo. He says that it is reasonable to estimate the number of the sick at Twenty men to each company of volunteers that the disease from which they seller most is Diarrah which seems to baffle the skill of the surgeons and that there Are no fevers prevailing unless of a very mild tiie caught a is now pretty Well understood that or. Polk has been Over reached by Santa Anna. Instead of his advancement to the head of affairs producing an immediate peace it is More than probable the War will be prolonged by it. How ridiculous How disgraceful has the administration rendered itself by the manner in which our mexican affairs have been conducted. It most wickedly involved the country in the War and then most cowardly after being fur wished with ample Means to prosecute it attempted to bribe a peace. For this purpose it entered into negotiation with the perfidious Santa Anna and to carry out the stipulations with him two millions of dollars were asked of the american Congress it is now admitted by the Quot Union Quot or. Polk s Quot Organ Quot that Santa Anna Quot will employ All the Means he can command in carrying on the War against yet Liis Man the most capable mexican general was permitted by com. Connor to his Fleet in order that he might place himself at the head of the mexican army i this is the statesman ship of a a Young Advance in produce 1 the advices per the great Western received at new York on the 1st inst., created great excitement in that Market causing a material Advance in the Price of flour Grain and other produce. Flour had advanced fully fifty cents per barrel. Holders firm at $5,50 for Western canal Southern brands $5,37i to $5,50. Letters received from Europe Are favourable to an Advance in flour and Grain. There is an Active demand for Grain. Wheat has advanced from seven to eight cents per Bushel prime red Selling at 106 to 112c. Yellow Corn 75 to 78c., an Advance of about 5cts. Prime Northern do. 80 cts. Corn meal $3,87a. Whiskey 26 to 27 cts and tending upwards. The Cotton Market continues firm at the advanced rates before noted. The stick Market is less Active and a slight decline is noticed in some of the leading securities. Provisions Are in Active request and prices tending upward. The Kennebec journal seems to have condensed the argument pro and con on the alleged tendency of Protection to enrich particular classes into a very Small Compass in the following paragraph which is Best a the most common and most popular argument against the Tariff of 1842 is that it enables the Quot Midi a factoring capitalists Quot to make Large profits. Very Tell if it be desirable of reducing these profits there were two ways of doing it and the Polk party have taken the worst Way. The better Way was to let the Law remain and under it a free Competition would have rapidly multiplied new works in All branches of mechanical and manufacturing business making great demand for labor. This Competition would have equalized profits in business generally. The other Way was adopted of reducing duties and inviting importations. This not Only stops All Progress All in Domestic manufactures but stops the works altogether in Many places and reduces wages every where. Which is the Best policy for the Labouring Man the Quot do Ioc Rac Quot of the Noether liberties Philadelphia held a meeting in the 26th ult at which the following Resolution was adopted resolved that the democratic party Are the special defenders of civil and religious Liberty such As depriving the catholics in new Hampshire of the right to hold office of the social and political Equality of Man and of the right of All men we suppose negroes Are not men according to progressive Quot democracy Quot to participate in the government under which they live principles which eminently distinguish our political system from those of Europe repudiated by the founders of the Republic and we firmly believe that when we cease to be governed by those american principles All difference Between us and the Down trodden masses of the old world will cease also. Of Quot a correspondent of the journal of Commerce Whoso letter bears Date at Oswego n. Y., sept. 25th, says the Mills at this place Are turning out 2500 to 3000 bbl. Superfine flour per Day from 4j bushels of wheat this you will say is close grinding but they do it and some steam Mills Range at 4 bushels 15 lbs. The barrel. The making a barrel of superfine flour of 256 lbs. Out of 225 lbs. Of wheat will be news to most of your readers. The Mills and bolting establishments Here Are very Superior. This promises to be the great Avenue for Indian Corn Trade. For regiment numbering Over eight Hundred men and officers intended for the Conquest and settlement of California left new York in three ships on the 28th ult. A few Days previous a civil process was issued against the commander. Col. J. D. Stevenson. Its execution was resisted by the officer of the Day on Board the ship on which the colonel had his quarters. A criminal process was then issued but before it could be executed the vessels put to sea. Maine full returns of the election in this state show that Dana Loco lacks 4,424 of being it is quite probable that the Locos will have a Small majority in the legislature thus securing his election. Maine gave Polk 12,341 majority at the last presidential election. Another year and it will be whig. Lej Quot a letter in the n. Evangelist from Rev. Or. Baird states that the number of persons who attended As members the sitting of the Christian Alliance in London which closed its deliberations on the i9th of aug., was upwards of 1000, of whom about 150 were from foreign lands including about 70 americans. News from the give in this morning s paper All the news from the army received. It is the opinion of the new Orleans papers of the 24th september that the next arrival will bring news of a Battle. It May be so Tho we Are inclined to to link the mexicans would rather sell us provisions at High prices than to fight us. O the u. S. Frigate Constitution after an absence of two years during which Lime she has circumnavigated the Globe arrived at Boston on the 27th ult. The officers and Crew were in Good health. Of Quot miss Fuller tic literary Eitress of Tho n. Tribune is now travelling in England. Two letters from her have already appeared in that paper which we have read wit i much interest. Mail gatherings. Gales on the last Gale on Lake Erie has made great havoc wit i the shipping. Some Twenty vessels incl using several steamboats had to take Refuge among the islands. Some lost their masts others their sails and Tho h Clay lost two of her hands by being washed overboard. Portland Ltd daily advertiser says that As far As heard from the whigs have elected .39 representatives the democrats 36, and the abolitionists 1. The whigs thus far have made a net gain of 8 members. The House is composed of 159 members. Last year it stood whigs 59, democrats 86, abolitionists 5. Democratic majority 22.

A destructive fire occurred at Cleveland Ohio on the 23d inst., in the evening. The canal collector s office and the Range of stores extending along Mervin Street to the Mer chants hotel were destroyed. The roof and furniture of the hotel were damaged. A Justice of the peace in Montreal lately committed a Vermont lawyer to prison for words spoken in debate he having called the said Justice Quot old High Cocka Lorum Quot in open court. Quot the upper ten late census of Boston has developed some curious facts. There is no Quot upper ten thousand Quot in that City not if to keep servants be necessary to the distinction. Only three Hundred and forty families in Boston keep More than ii Ijo domestics and but four thousand four Hundred and one families keep them at All while fifteen thousand seven Hundred and seventy four families live in household Independence doing their own work entirely capt. Rynders who has obtained such a wide spread notoriety partly As president of the Empire club and partly from other causes has been deposed. It appears that on the 23d ult. The club had a meeting and in consideration of an alleged improper Assumption of authority in taking and papers from their Secretary resolved Isaiah out of tie presidency and John l. Austin into the succession. It is said that a mine of Silver Ore has been discovered in Dubois county in this state and that a company of gentlemen Are erecting a Furnace and a preparing to work the mine. Correspondence of the letter from Lieut. Wallace. Camp Rio Grande sept. 4,184g. Dear sir a after a months location at Barrita we have at length removed pitched our tents and taken Post at the Mouth of the Rio Grande. Backward marches like retreats Are always unpleasant. This March was particularly some consider it a disgrace others hailing it As our first one homeward View it with silent pleasure while not a few us Aff Quot dec Teddy cheer and Quot Viva Quot it because provisions will be plenty. With the latter i entertain no sympathy with the second i feel no pleasure but viewing it in the Light of a Dishonour with the first class i wish that there May be a necessity for our assistance and presence. If however destiny has written that a City is to be founded Here and has crowned our colonel the Eneas of tie Rio Grande a Why then Quot so Mote it tis said and generally believed that Monterey is but As the report May be Quot Camp news Quot merely we must pause to reason Ere we consent to believe. Gen. Worth s brigade and col. Harney s mounted regiment Haye marched against it and of its eventual capture there is but Little Mexic if Force can be assembled in twelve months space sufficient to stay Gen. Taylor s Onward March but at the same time so contradictory Are the stories As to the strength of the City s fortifications and the number of its soldiery that it is impossible either to assert it As in our Possession at present or that it will be taken with or without bloodshed and Battle. Troops Are still moving up to Camargo. The yellow fever month has just opened and some of us Are looking Forward with no Little anxiety to its conclusion. By prudence care and cleanliness escape is possible As the mexicans inform us that it but Seldom if Ever appears on this portion of the Taum Lipan coast a slow wasting fatal fever is now prevalent among the volunteers occasioned by unnecessary exposure to the Sun and imprudence in therefore god knows there be sufficient cause for fear in Camp without a visitation so terrible As the three weeks More however and All will be Safe. It would be amusing to some of you to behold the change which scarce two months have wrought in our the Bright Gaudy uniform in which to started has become faded and tarnished. Our Caps once so decidedly military in their cast entirely worn out have been cast aside and their places supplied by Dingy shapeless Quot Palo Alto Quot fur hats whose slouching rims make us look More like Spanish by Gauss than citizen volunteers. Some Are shoeless Bootlegs others coat less and not a few Breech less. Our faces have been browned by Sun and heat and whiskers mustaches amp a. Are allowed As much countenance with us As among the fashionable of new York. In a word stand fifty paces from the line on a regimental Parade glance Over our Sun Burnt features and my word for it you would scarcely recognise the most familiar acquaintance amid the dark desperate Quot Mexicano Quot looking Fellows so sternly arrayed before &c.,Lewis Wallace.

Byington an Engineer on the Cincinnati and Louisville packet Ben Franklin was killed Between 11 and 12 o clock sunday night near the Corner of main and third streets by Theodore Church a Journeyman tailor in the employ of or. Elijah Smith. Quot the weapon used was a Bowie knife and Byington was shockingly Cut Early in the morning there was a Good Deal of excitement in the streets about it and during the Day a dozen different versions of the dead were in circulation. We shall give none of them nor any account of the affray until after an investigation by the proper authorities. Either with or without cause the act is a dreadful one and furnishes another to the Many and forcible illustrations of the Folly and the lamentable consequences of carrying such weapons. Two parties out at night very naturally met at one of the angles of a Square. Without knowledge of each other they came in contacts words passed then blows and now one of them is lifeless and another under arrest As his murderer Church was taken yesterday morning near Tho scene of aft Quot Ray while consulting with his employer the proper course of r him to pursue and when just about starting to give himself up to the officer of .
