Buchanan calling for a list of All the removals Fiora office mile since the 4th of March was discussed. The Bill for the Relief of mrs. Harrison was passed by a vote of 28 to 16. Or. Buchanan was the Only member of the opposition that voted Aye. The Bill to incorporate the subscribers to the fiscal Bank of the United states was considered and amended in several minor particulars. A motion to Amend so As to allow the Bank to Issue $5 notes As the minimum instead of $10, As proposed by the Bill was negatived by a vote of 26 to 21. In the House except the Reading of the distribution and Preemption Bill nothing else was done but discuss the Mcleod Case. Juvenile Celebration. Our citizens were on saturday entertained with to them a Nofil but highly interesting Celebration of the fourth of july. About 4 o clock in the afternoon a Hundred or More children assembled at the second presbyterian Church whence they marched to the state House under the direction of their own marshals. The spacious court room was crowded with Childr Fin and adults. The exercises commenced by an address to the throne of Grace by the Rev. Or. Beechert then followed the singing of an appropriate hymn Abhi it address the singing of another hymn to e Reading of the declaration the singing of another hymn an oration and lastly the singing of Quot Hail All the exercises were performed by the children and we May add for children in an appropriate and respectable manner. We Are no judges of vocal music but the singing to us was the very sweetest and Best we Ever listened to. The oration abounded with Fine and patriotic sentiments. The language of course was not Chaste classical and vigorous but it gave abundant evidence that the speaker possesses a mind that if properly trained and cultivated will yet Shine out among those of its age and Era. The declaration was read in a Clear and audible voice and in a manner Superior to that of Many men we have listened to on like occasions. Take the exercises altogether we do not recollect when we have spent an hour similarly with More pleasure. Job Moval of leu. Harrison s remains. We were mistaken in saying in our last that it had been found impracticable to remove the remains of general Harrison. We were led into the error by a Cincinnati paper. In conformity to a Resolution of both houses of Congress saturday the 26th ult., was set apart for the removal. At 10 o clock of that Day without pomp or display the remains were removed by Way of the Capitol to the rail Road depot. The remains Are accompanied to the West by a u. S. Marine corps. About 3 o clock p. M. The remains reached Baltimore and were appropriately received and remained until the next monday morning under a military guard of the several Volunteer companies belonging to the City. The american of monday morning says Quot the president and directors of the Baltimore and Susquehanna rail Road company with becoming liberality have tendered to the committee a special train to convey the remains to Columbia to leave at 8 o clock this morning. An invitation was also Given to such military companies As choose to accompany the Corpse As far As Columbia. The cars have been appropriately decorated with mourning emblems and the directors of the Road have resolved to accompany the committee to Columbia. At Columbia the committee will embark on the Pennsylvania canal for death of Oen. Macomb. Gen. Macomb commander in chief of the army of the United states died at Washington City on the 25th ult of apoplexy after an illness of Only a few hours. The Washington correspondent of the Cincinnati Republican gives a Brief account of his life As follows Quot he was born in Michigan on the 3d of april 1782, and was consequently in the 60th year of his age. General Macomb was appointed Cornet of dragoons on the 10th of january 1799 brigadier general on the 24th january 1814, and Bre vetted As major general on the 11th september same year Quot for distinguished and Gallant conduct in defeating the enemy at when the army was reduced in 1821, he was appointed chief Engineer on the first Day of june of that year and promoted to the distinguished station he fill Effat the hour of his decease on the 24th May 1828, As the successor of the late general Brown. As a Gallant officer. General Macomb was universally respected As a citizen he was highly esteemed by our entire Community and his decease has occasioned a vacuum in our society not easily to be for the Indiana journal. Central canal no. 2. With Quot Bac woodsman Quot i fully agree that the Only Way for the state of Indiana to become Able to pay her internal improvement debt is Quot to Complete As speedily As possible by herself or companies some of the most productive unfinished while All deplore the evils that have come upon us How few Are willing Tor take upon themselves any of the blame in producing them if Prosperity had resulted from our expenditures enough would have been willing to appropriate to themselves the honors resulting from the Conception and plans of the Enterprise. It is useless now to deplore or to censure for what is past but let it be a lesson of such deep experience As to produce More Wisdom and Economy in our future operations. It is indeed time that party strife and sectional jealousies were buried in oblivion in regard to matters of such vast and general importance and i am heartily glad to see such favourable evidence thereof As is Manifest in the articles of Quot Bac woodsman Quot and much desire that All Quot whigs Quot As Well As Quot democrats Quot will be As candid in the expression of their sentiments and As ardent in their Zeal for the Prosperity of the state. Although advocating the necessity and proposing a plan for the completion of the Northern portion of the Central canal it is not because i consider the claims of that portion Paramount to All other unfinished parts of our Public works but because i am the More immediately interested in the completion of this portion and As the plan proposed to Complete it will not affect injuriously any other portions of the state of course none can complain but rather All May adopt the same course for their own Benefit. As Quot Bac woodsman Quot proposes to Point out a future course of operations i will now merely refer to some of the Many benefits that will result from the completion of our canal. A family having a Good Spring from fifty to one Hundred Yards from the door feel Well Content with their Supply of water. But should their Spring dry up and necessity compel them to go half a mile for All the water required for family use they would soon learn the great value of water and would ask for nothing More than a full Supply again in their own Spring. With this they would feel Content hardly dreaming or wishing to be better accommodated. But should a Man come along and persuade them of its importance and for a few dollars place a pump in a Well of endless Supply and pure water within a few feet of their door they would for the first time learn How great a loss they had yearly sustained in time labor and shoe leather in trudging Back and Forth to the Spring. Although every member of the family May have often seen pumps and used them yet the thought May have hardly occurred that they might be just As Well accommodated at Home. The reason is nature had provided them with a Spring and the dwelling had been placed As near it As the nature of the ground would admit with the expectation of always depending on it for a Supply of water and perhaps they never would have thought of digging a Well and placing a pump in it if some one had not have pointed out to them its advantages and the manner of effecting it. Hundreds and thousands of persons who would be greatly benefited by the completion of the canal Are not sufficiently aware of the fact to feel much interested about it. Although they May have seen canals and heard much of their benefits yet they have he no experience for nature has provided them with a Good soil and Good water. They Are Content with wearing out the first As fast As annual cropping will do it and to partake of the benefits of the second from the spot Only where nature causes it to Spring from the ground. As the pump maker would wish to convince All of the importance of having a Well and a Good pump in it near the door so i wish to convince All such of the benefits that a canal would bring them because our interests would be equally promoted and i conceive it to be the duty of every individual not Only to Endeavor to promote his own interest but the interest of the Community in which he lives. Those who have not themselves received the Benefit of any improvement must judge by comparison of the benefits that others similarly situated May have Reee ired. We must refer to other works and see How far their situation and circumstances correspond with our own and apply the results to our own Case. Let us look at the Erie canal the great Pioneer of the United states. All it to Are conversant with the history of its Progress Are aware of the powerful opposition its friends had to contend against. Sectional feelings and jealousies were strongly arrayed against it and its magnitude was such As to stagger the credulity of Many who if they did not openly oppose it much weakened the efforts of its projectors by their sarcasm and ridicule. Some thought it presumptuous in Man to engage in so vast an Enterprise and Many have been heard to say that they did not wish to live longer than to the time when it would be finished yet some of these Are yet living to enjoy its benefits. But through the perseverance and Energy of a fir Fly the work was finally accomplished and i have years ago travelled on it the whole distance from Albany to Buffalo. Most of the sectional interests that were arrayed against it have been benefited rather than injured. The residents along the Hudson were mostly opposed to it believing it would bring such an immense amount of produce to Market As to reduce the Price and thus injure them. But the demand equalled the increased Supply and instead of being ruined As Many of the Farmers along the River thought they would be their farms As Well As their produce have continued to increase in value until $100. Per acre is no uncommon Price even in these hard times. It was supposed that towns and villages situated on the Turnpike roads from 8 to 16 Miles Back from the canal would be impeded in their growth if not ruined but their increase has been much More rapid since although a rival opposite Earh one has grown up on the canal and some of which has of far surpassed their older neighbors in size and business yet the general increase of business has caused them All to flourish. The owners of stages running on routes parallel with the canal Tere alarmed fearing the splendid packets would ruin their business but with the increased accommodation the increase of travel was so Large As soon to require double the amp number of stages that were needed before. And the inhabitants of the Southern tier of counties so Remote from the canal As to be debarred the privilege of transporting Grain and heavy articles thought they were surely ruined As their More fortunate neighbors would enjoy the whole Market but their butter cheese and Wool for producing which their land was Well adapted soon found its Way in vast quantities to the canal and the returns afforded a fair profit. Thus while nearly All were benefited the cases were very rare where any were injured. Produce and farms within a reasonable distance soon increased fifty to one Hundred per cent in Valire improvements and inhabitants rapidly increased and new York soon became the Quot Empire i have thus glanced at the benefits resulting from the construction of the Erie canal and alluded to the Strong and sectional jealousies that were arrayed against it for the purpose of showing that they originated and were perpetuated in selfishness and also to show that the benefits of a canal Are much More extensive than Many would at first suppose. Even at distances so Remote that Grain would not pay the expense of the land Carriage butter cheese Wool and some other articles would afford a profit. Lot our canal be opened and our Farmers would soon arrange their business to their situation and circumstances and All within a reasonable distance would be More or less benefited. Towns and villages would Spring up emigrants would flock in and make a Market for land and produce until they could raise for themselves and if the canal itself would not be As profitable As the Erie canal yet the Benefit to individuals would be As great. Instead of land advancing one Dollar an acre it would soon Advance fifty to one Hundred per cent and produce in proportion and All after having become fully aware of its benefits would be As loth to part with the canal As would the family with the pump and again trudge Back and Forth to the Spring for water.

Remains of the Riate president. The following is the correspondence communicated to Congress by the president of the United states on tuesday. It was referred to the committee appointed upon the subject of the death of the late president. Washington june 16, 1841. To the president of the United states dear sir the undersigned were appointed by the citizens and the City Council of the City of Cincinnati and by Many of the surviving soldiers of the late War to apply to the widow and family of our distinguished fellow citizen the late president of the United states for permission to remove his remains from the City of Washington to the slate of Ohio for interment. They have made the application directed and have received permission to perform the sacred Trust. They have now the Honor of reporting to you their arrival in this City and of asking your approbation of the measures contemplated and your co operation in carrying it into effect. We Are fully aware of the High estimate you placed on the talents and Virtues of our lamented Friend and fellow citizen the late chief magistrate of the Union whose Friendship and Confidence you possessed Many years. We saw the tear fall from your Eye and min Quot with the tears of the nation when the inscrutable will of heaven removed him from us. Knowing these things we approach you with Confidence Well assured that you will justly appreciate our motive for undertaking the Mournful duty we have been deputed to perform and that the same kind feeling which has marked your course through life will prompt you on this occasion to afford your countenance and if necessary your co operation. If it meet your approbation the committee will do themselves the Honor of wailing upon you at the president s House at any hour you May please to designate. With High respect we arc your friends and fellow citizens. J. Burnet. J. C. Wright. The. . Chas. S. Clarkson. Edw d Woodruff. Rufus Hodges. L. White Man. A. Dudley. D. A. Powell. A. Mcalpin. John Reeves. Washington june 17, 1841. letter of the 16th was duly handed me and i lose no time in responding to the feelings and sentiments which you have expressed for yourselves and those you represent and which you have correctly ascribed to to in regard to the lamented death of the late president. As a citizen i respected him As a Patriot i honoured him As a Friend he was near and dear Tome that the people of Cincinnati should desire to keep watch Over his remains by in bombing them near their City is both natural and becoming that the entire West where so Many evidences of his Public usefulness Are to be found should unite in the same wish was to have been expected and that the surviving soldiers of his Many Battles led on by him to Victory and to glory should sigh to perform the last melancholy duties to the remains of their Ohl commander is fully in consonance with the promptings of a Noble and generous sympathy. I could not if i was authorized to do so oppose myself to their wishes. I might find something to urge on behalf of his native state in my knowledge of his continued attachment to her through the whole period of his useful life in the claims of his relatives there whose desire it would be that the mortal remains of the illustrious son should sleep under the same turf with those of his distinguished father one of the signers of the declaration of Independence in the wish of the citizens of his native county to claim All that is now of him for whom they so lately cast their almost unanimous suffrage to say nothing of my own feelings Allied As i am my blood to Manj of his near relatives and with our names so closely associated in and so much connected Vith the late exciting political contest these considerations might present some reasonable ground for opposing you wishes. But the assent which has been Given by his respected widow and nearest relative to the request of the people of Cincinnati admits of no opposition on my part neither in my individual nor official character. I shall find it to to my duty however to submit our correspondence to the two houses of Congress now in session but anticipating no Effort from that ii Arter to thwart the wishes expressed by yourselves in consonance with those of the widow and nearest relatives of the late president i readily Promise Ycu my co operation towards enabling you to fulfil the sacred Trust which brought you to this City. I tender to each of you gentlemen my cordial salutations. John Tyler. To j. Burnet j. C. Weight and others of the committee. Declining to be Defeated. Or. Benton has been requested to become a candidate for the presidency by some of the opposition party in Philadelphia. The following is a reply in part to the intended nomination a list tar from or. Benton. Washington City june 8.1841. Your kind letter of the 4th inst. In relation to the democratic meeting at Spring Garden on the evening of the 3d, and the resolve there adopted to hold a meeting of the democracy of the City and county of Philadelphia to form an association to promote my nomination and election to the presidency of the United states in the year 1844, has been received and while i am duly sensible of the Honor done me by these proceedings and extremely grateful for the kind motives which induced them i must hasten to do every thing in my Power to arrest at the commencement a proceeding which however honorable to me cannot in my opinion be beneficial to the cause of contentions for the first place have in All Ages and in All countries been the Bane of elective governments and i have been fully Ilet Ermilich Over since i Nave been on the stage of Public Ait airs to have nothing to do with such contentions. I have always seen and now see in the ranks of the democratic party Many eminent citizens who Are worthy to fill the place of president and it is my purpose now As it has been heretofore to promote the election and to support the administration if elected of some one of these citizens. Private letters to this effect i have written to Many friends in different parts of tha Union in answer to their inquiries and what i now write to you is nothing but a repetition of what i have already said and a Ritten to Many others. Sunday. Of the time however the comi hitter will make a Public announcement. I ?.hall expect to see a Large number of the citizens of Warren county present on the occasion for it is presumed that every whig and Many of the opposition party will be Dpi Rous to pay the last tribute of respect to the departed hero Patriot and Sage. With scarcely an exception wherever a Democrat was found in of a the axe of the executive has been Maysville Monitor. The above would make the father of lies himself Blush. Of All the democrats that hold office in Kentucky but three that we have heard of have been removed. The marshal the District attorney and the numerous Post masters Are All yet in office. The Post master at Maysville who was constantly running about neglecting his office to make democratic speeches at Slick away and elsewhere the Post master at Covington ky., who never ought to have been appointed having not a solitary qualification for the office and Quot Var. William Tanner who had been appointed special agent for the Post office department an office of about As much necessity to the department As a fifth wheel would be to a Wagon have been removed. These Are All the removals we have heard of and yet every Federal office in the state Worth having is held by a mis called , ky., intelligencer. Aggravated Clarksville Tenn chronicle of the 17th inst. Says a most atrocious murder was committed on the body of a Man whose name we have not Learned near Dover on sunday night week by we. King and two Brothers named Manning. The unhappy tie Timi says report wag held fast by the mannings while King first cutoff his army and then literally butchered him with a knife. The villains red bit a efe Takouj some three Days after by capt. Cherry and col. Wallace at a or. Wimberly a in Kentucky. Quot they were brought Back to Dover and bound Over for trial at the approaching term of circuit court for Stewart county. Of the circumstances of the provocation which led to this horrible outrage we have Only Learned that it was a Mere personal and social pique. The Cincinnati correspondent of the Louisville Quot Quot pal writing under Date of june 2�z. Says a correspondent Xor tire of the x8th, from upper Sandusky writes that John w. Bear known As the Buckeye Bucl Tsmith has positively been removed from an Indian Agency tit that place. This appointment it seems has Given Gene ral dissatisfaction throughout our state his unfitness for the station being sufficient grounds for complaint. A foul murder was committed about forty Miles Back of Covington on the Public Road in open Day Light on Friday last. A Man by the name of in inert Back a drover came to the City a Day or two previous with some Stock which he sold and received the proceeds about one thousand dollars he left the City on Friday morning but not until he had sent his Money Home. Soon after he left Covington a couple of notorious scoundrels. Smith Mays and one Gouch who have been on the Chain gang time after time were seen to leave the Plade and take the same Road with a horse and buggy and shooting apparatus for the ostensible purpose of a shooting excursion in the country. On the afternoon of the same Day the body of Utterback was found in the Public High Vay with his Throat Cut and his pockets rifled and All they got to satisfy their consciences for killing a human being was the sum of two dollars and a half. It is Suppo sed they have fled to your City so Tell your Marshall to be on the look out for them the death of Willis Gaylord Clark Esq. Editor of the Philadelphia Gazette is announced in the papers of that City in terms which prove the High estimation in which he was held in that we copy the annexed paragraph on the subject from the american Sentinel Quot it is our sad task to announce to our readers the death of our Friend and late contemporary Willis Gay lord Clark Esq. Editor of the Philadelphia Gazette. He expired on saturday night a victim to pulmonary consumption at the Early age of 32. His death is a Public loss and will be especially lamented by his editorial Brethren by whom he Vas greatly a respected and beloved. Or. Clark was a scholar a poet and a gentleman. Quot none knew him but to love his health had for a Long time been failing. The death of his accomplished and Lovely wife several years ago upon whom he dated with a passionate and rapturous fondness had shaken his Constitution and eaten his strength. None but his intimate friends knew the influence of that sad affliction upon his physical Frame. To the last his heart yearned Over the dust of that Lovely woman. In his death chamber her portrait stood always before him on the table and his Loving Eye turned to it even in the extremes pain As though it was his living and Only Friend. The verses to her memory by her smitten husband written soon after her death we consider one of the richest poetical gems in the language though very inadequately expressive of the i tenseness of the author s Cochran s bomb Cannon. Oft repeated experiments have proved that it can be discharged five times in sixteen seconds thus firing sixteen shot in the time required for two of an Ordinary Cannon that it will save labor in the ratio of seventy five per cent and that it is More Safe has less recoil mud is in every respect More serviceable than the guns in general use. From the rapidity and certain execution of its discharges it must be especially serviceable in gunboats galleys and other vessels used in boarding in All cases too where boats Are engaged As likewise in covering the Landing of troops and in defence against sudden attacks its superiority Over the Ordinary Cannon is so evident As to require no special note. It has been said by those Well qualified to judge that a single Steamer with two sixty four on Cochran s plan might destroy any line of Battle ship. While the forty two Pounders of the former were loading an unbroken Stream of fire would be pouring in upon her with unchecked Power that nothing could preserve her from instant . Y. Tribune. The Monument. It is with Lively satisfaction that we Are enabled to announce the rapid Progress of the building of the Monument on Bunker Hill. Or. Savage the contractor commenced his operations on the Hill about the first of May and has Laid eight course bring two feet eight inches in depth and eighteen feet eight inches have been added to the height which is now something More than a Hundred feet. On an average one week is consumed in laying a single course. The stones Are hoisted by steam Power the engine being some distance from the base of the Monument and no part of the moving Power being visible. The operation is performed rapidly and to see it is Worth a walk to Charleston in. This Sublime Monument when finished will extend to the Altitude of 220 feet above the surface of the ground. The base 13 1-2 feet is entirely below the surface. The room at the head of the stairs will have a ceiling of grained Arches. On each Side will be a window furnished with an Iron shutter so constructed that when closed there will be no perceptible difference Between them and the solid Granite the two upper courses forming the Apex will consist each of a single Block of Granite the upper one will weigh Between three and four co Wierl electric Buffalo journal of a late Date contains the Foll Viring Quot As this is the season when All Are More or less liable to experience a Shock from nature s Battery we would remark that any person struck Down by lightning no matter if apparently dead ought to be Laid immediately extended on the Damp ground and if it do not rain upon him water should be thrown on freely which in most cases will conduct off the electric fluid without serious injury.

Quot who Readeth let him Quot Jonathan Homespun having purchased an extensive farm and provided himself with every thing requisite to prosperous husbandry proposes to furnish subscribers with one quart of a heat weekly for one year at the Low rate of one Dollar and fifty cents if not paid till the close of the Quot the facilities afforded by the government for tha transportation of wheat to every Section of the Union and adjacent provinces Are such As must prove satisfactory to every subscriber and the proprietor of the granary assures All who May patronize him that he will exert himself to Supply an article of the Best Quality. A b. Agents will be allowed a generous per Cen Tage. Address Post paid proprietor of the granary Hopeville. Such was the prospectus issued by my Friend or. Homespun. Peeling a Lively interest in his welfare i visited his farm although it was a Long journey from my Home and was pleased to find every thing in Nice order. He informed me that he had contracted a Large debt in the Purchase of the premises Stock and implements of husbandry but that he had no doubt of his ability to discharge every obligation in a few years he also stated that he had already received Many Hundred subscribers and that in four or five weeks he would commence the delivery of the wheat according to his proposals. The scheme appeared plausible and my Friend was so confident of his Success that 1 had not the slightest doubt of his Prosperity. I entered my name As a subscriber it and when i left him he was preparing Many thousand quart sacks. Every week for the space of two years t received my quart of wheat and concluded in a its excellent Quality and prompt delivery that every thing was prosperous with Jonathan Homespun and his farm. So i gave myself no concern about my indebtedness to him for said i to a Farmer so extensively patronized As he is the Small pittance of two years arrearage would be but As a drop in the it is True there was occasionally printed on the sacks a general notice to delinquents but i never expected that this was intended for his friends. The notice however became More frequent and having Leisure i concluded i would visit my Friend the proprietor of the granary. A greeted me cordially but i saw that there was trouble. He was evidently worn with toil and anxiety and in the conversation of the Evring he entered into particulars. Quot Here Quot said be Quot i have been Labouring Day and almost night for two years and 1 am More in debt now than when i began. My creditors ate pressing me for payment i am conscious of my inability to meet their demands and can perceive no result but bankruptcy Aud y Quot but have you not a Large list of subscribers Quot said i. Quot yes n very Large list Quot was his reply Quot but too Many of them Are like you Quot Quot i a Quot i quickly rejoined in amazement Quot too Many like me Quot Quot Purdon me Quot said my Friend in a melancholy Lone a Quot Pardon to for oppression will make even a Wise Man mad. You have had a quart of wheat weekly for two years and i have not had a cent of payment i have a Large list of the same kind of patrons scattered Here and there Over thousands of Miles. If they would pay me the trifles they severally owe me i should be directly freed from embarrassment and go of my Way rejoicing. But they reasoned As you reasoned and among you 1 am Brou it to the door of poverty and i Felt the full Force of the rebuke and promptly paying arrearage at the increased Price named in the prospectus and also a year in Advance i Short Lar bade Adieu to the worthy and won cd Farmer resolving to do every thing in my Power to repair the injury which.
