The question is frequently asked when Are we going to have better times ? the answer is when Vve cease to buy foreign merchandise on credit and save the fees that Are paid for the collection of debts. A Liat has been the state of things among us for sometime past our country has been flooded wit ii foreign merchandise a much of it articles of Noces sity and use but a vast amount of which have been crowded upon the people for inc w promises to pay. These promises have not been performed in thy of the Liole nation in which the people of this Commonwealth with one Accord unite.

The collision at sea. A collision of the packet ship Susquehanna with some other Large vessel off the Banks of Newfoundland took place on the 8th Ultimo at four o clock a. M. The injury to the Susquehanna is said to be very great. The Philadelphia North american says that she had literally been rescued from the jaws of the great deep. The morning the collision occurred was not dark but the sea was running High and the vessels did not discover each other until the moment of the collision. The Susquehanna s Bowsprit is taken off clean and the Cut water torn and wrenched from the ship in a Way which shows the encounter must have been tremendous. She was running at the rate of nine knots and shipping seas constantly at the time. The impression on Board the Susquehanna is that the blow was so hard and so near the Centre of the other ship that she must have been totally disabled if not stove in causing her to sink immediately. After the collision she slowed round and grated past the Susquehanna with such rapidity that no Opportunity was Given to discover who she was or the extent of her injuries. The impression on Board is that she was an East indiaman or some ship of the largest class and As the Cut water of the Susquehanna is taken off Low Down she was upon the top of the sea at the moment of the consequently the other ship must have suffered the More severely. New York custom House. Messes. Poindexter and Kelly have commenced their investigations being a majority of the committee. Or. Russell has probably declined serving. The following is copied from the new York express of the 19lh inst. Quot we intended to have continued the custom House disclosures which have excited so much interest Here and in the neighbouring cities. The material so far from being exhausted we were informed multiplied upon the hands of Liose we 0 gave us the important information we have p aced before tie we should have continued our investigation if an investigation Iliad not been ordered by the proper department at Washington and we May do so scime future Day and carry the War from new York to Piisila Delphia. Our attention to Day is called to Philadel phia from seeing the interest manifested in that City in regard to the exposures made Here. The United states Gazette of yesterday publishes the first number which appeared in the express signed Quot a custom House officer Quot and intends to continue the publication of All the numbers. A responsible Philadelphia importer the publication in the Gazette states in a note to the editor that his consignor in new York was obliged to Fay to Jesse Loyt. In consequence of the system mentioned in the first letter the slim o/$25,000, a order to get from out of his which were then in the custom House to the amount of two to four Hundred Ihn usand dollars hut which was done because there Ivas no other Way to avoid a greater loss through the detention and consequent deterioration of goods and likewise to avoid the expanses of a vexatious the ships Oregon Mary Kingsland and Quebec All arrived at new York from England since wednesday morning last brought out an aggregate of 748 Steerage passengers. The Mary Kingsland brought 310. M Leod hearing before the supreme court of new York of this Case was brought to a close on wednesday the 19th the report in the express states that the decision Quot will probably not be Given until the last Day of the term if so soon Quot which it was understood would be on the 29th. The Rio Janerio papers mention that on the 24th of March Commodore Ridgely received official intelligence of the death of Commodore Stevens at Washington and on the following Day All the american vessels had their colors at half Mast and minute guns were fired by the vessels of War. The brazilian English and French vessels of War also set their colors at half Mast. National intelligencer in copying an article in reference to the age and continued Good health of judge Duvall says a judge Duvall s father lived to the age of 90, and his grand father 93 cultivators of the same estate on which the venerable judge resides. The judge is now in his 89th year. Or. Webster. The Louisville journal in reply to a Loco Foco editor who affected astonishment that the whip a press should attempt to defend the defender of the Constitution says Quot we Hope you Don t forget that Daniel Webster defended the administration of Gen. Jackson in an exigency when it needed All the Powers of his unconquerable Arm and that he was rewarded by Gen. Jackson with a profusion of commendations and at least a show of gratitude. And docs it become the friends of an administration which owed so much to or. Webster s defence to talk of Quot impudence Quot when the whigs think proper to defend him Quot we recommend to the attention of every Reader who feels within him any lurking affection for what we cannot at present otherwise describe than As the Calhoun school of politics the subjoined pregnant remarks on the doctrines successively broach cd by that school. Those remarks Are entitled to the More regard As coming from a source heretofore rather Friendly than otherwise to the party which i. Calhoun and his friends have lately acted with not influenced in its present views by any party feeling but speaking the language of a sober judgment Nat. these Uhern Patriot Charleston s. A South Carolina paradoxes. South Carolina is certainly the Parent of Paradox is. Liere is no division on the habitable Globe of the same extent that can rival her in this particular. First we had the Paradox that All duties whatever on importations fall on the producer. Next that to a Bolish the custom houses and sub Stille for Covi Mercial i posts a direct assessment on lands houses and slaves Lould he the least burdensome if not the most equitable of fiscal impositions. And then Shiuh Carolina had the enviable paternity of originating commercial contentions to change the currents of Trade and convocations of planters to regulate the Price of Cotton and the course of exchanges South Carolina May then be called most emphatically the nursing Parent if not the Mother of paradoxes. Whether Liis is owing to a certain idiosyncrasy or mental organization of tier sons we cannot determine. But the fact must have struck All observers and has become part of her history. We have lately encountered another illustration of its truth in the essay of a writer who figures in the Columbia carolinian and who makes Battle most chivalrous by against tic scieme of distributing the proceeds of the Public lands by contending that it would Lead to a considerable increase of tie duties and a that the people pay a lax of two millions of dollars for every million collected in duties on ii ported now this is the Paradox of paradoxes. If such were the Case it would be an Irre Fragalle argument in favor of abolishing forthwith All our Customhouse. But the writer makes out his proposition by a certain duplication and re duplication of figures tha. Look More like a geometrical progression than an arithmetical process. Thus he assumes the duty of an imported article to be $1, after adding the mercantile profit in per cent making 16. This is called increasing the Price on account of the duty Quot but we would term it an increase of Price on account of duty and mercantile profit together. Here any rational person would conclude ended the mercantile profit. But the Columbia writer assumes that there is a mercantile profit of 16 per cent on this increase which being 18 cents on 16, augments the Price to $1 34. This increase to contends takes place before the article leaves the hands of the wholesale dealer. He next assumes that the average Advance in the hands of the retail trader of imported goods is fifty tier cent. Which being g7 cents on 34, makes ,<��2 01 for the increase of Price on account of a duty of �$1 on an imported article. Thus it is most ingeniously made to appear by a new arithmetical a demonstration that for one million of dollars paid through the Customhouse on imported commodities the people pay a tax i two millions. It is quite edifying therefore to be instructed in this new doctrine of taxation to Witt at because the wholesale merchant and retail trader add their customary profit to the Price of their goods therefore the duty is duplicated in its amount and the people for every Dollar in duty pay a tax of two dollars in value increased Quot on account of the duty Quot perhaps the Columbia writer has discovered some a a Listi Tisins Rtin Star. The Quebec Gazette of monday the 19ih insi., contains the following account of an occurrence in that City by which eight houses were destroyed and Many lives lost. A most distressing Accident occurred morning at about eleven o clock a Large mass of Cape Diamond with the Wall from the governor s Garden to the base of the Citadel gave Way and buried under masses of Stone and Earth the houses in Champlain Street opposite the custom House. A 1.,i Quot . Iii about 8 build a great proportion of cases and the Legal a tits be a a destroyed. Part of the inmates were tween buyer and seller have been employed to collect the debts and for their services the buyer has to pay in addition to tie first Cost on the goods and which May be considered As a tax upon the people for the privilege of running in debt. Not it a what in the a mount of this tax Jjon the people of Indiana i will exorcise the privilege of guessing and use a few figures in Ciferino it out. Marion county contains 16,11s inhabitants and the fees paid to justices and constables together with the losses sustained on property sold under execution during the past year i will suppose amounts in the aggregate to one Dollar for each inhabitant which will make 10,118. Assuming the same estimate for the state and we have $6s3,ii4, paid for justices and constables fees amp a. In addition to this i will set Down for costs in circuit and other courts lawyers fees loss on property and extra interest $316,-836 More which will make the round sum of one a million of dollars paid by the people of Indiana in one year for the privilege of running in debt. An alarming amount indeed but As i am not very expert at figures i Hope the people will calculate for themselves to see whether i have exceeded the Mark. In addition to Liis the prices paid for goods is much More than if purchases had been made for Cash in hand and the amount of goods purchased is much greater fur when a Man pays for goods at the time he buys them he is More economical in his purchases than when pay Day is a great Way off. The vast amount thus unnecessarily expended May be considered As one of the primary causes of the continuance of Quot hard our Legal and necessary taxes Are High enough but when we Are annually paying such a Large amount of unnecessary tax in addition it is time to Quot bestir with a continuation of this state of things we May Quot wish and Hope for better times Quot in vain. But Franklin says Quot what signify the wishing and hoping for better times we can make the times better if we bestir let us reverse the picture and suppose we have bes tired ourselves and brought up even with the world and for the coming year we should expend our million of dollars in something like the i blow ing manner. For improvements on farms buildings &c., $300,000 Quot machinery and for manufacturing purposes 200,000 Quot improved Stock of All kinds 300,000 Quot improved implements of agriculture seeds fruit Trees &c., 40,000 Quot agricultural papers and books 25,000 Quot school houses and purposes of education 11.5,000 Quot books for libraries amp a. 20,000 Titis would show a very different state of things among us and when we can realize this picture then indeed shall we have bettor times. To a realization of this state of things May be looked upon As the visionary dream Intro of enthusiasm. But it is As easy to realize it As it is to dream about it if every one would set about in Earnest to effect it. Let every neighbourhood of Farmers meet together and pass resolutions like the Ful lowing and carry them out strictly in practice and the thing is accomplished. 1st. Resolved that from this time Forward we will not pay one cent As fees for the collection of debts. 2nd. Resolved that hereafter we will contract no debts for articles of consumption further than necessity absolutely requires. 3d. Resolved that to will mutually Aid and assist each other in the payment of debts already contracted and what we May be necessarily compelled hereafter to contract. 4th. Resolved that hereafter we will buy nothing let for consumption that we can make or procure at Home. 5th. Resolved that we will hereafter expend in the improvement of our farms in the Purchase of improved Stock implements seeds agricultural papers books and for the purposes of education an annual amount equal to what we have heretofore paid in the aggregate for costs in the collection of debts. And wide ideas by carrying out in full the objects of these resolutions some of our fellow citizens Viz a portion of the justices constables lawyers and merchants will be left without employment therefore. 6th. Resolved that we respectfully invite them to Settle Down on Good farms among us and become producers instead of Consumers and unite their Means and energies with us in the promotion of the Best interests of the people and state of Indiana.

Great robbery of the Frederick county last mails from Frederick bring us the distressing intelligence that the Frederick county Bank located in Frederick City was entered sometime Between saturday evening and monday morning and robbed of the following funds As reported after a Hasty examination in Gold in notes and Bills of other Banks and checks in notes of the Frederick county Bank state 6 per cent. Bonds slate 6 percent. Certificates 5 per cent. Sterling Bonds $10,049 33 8,733 16 134,907 00 6,000 00 14.000 00 12,222 00 making an aggregate of $185,976 54 the Entrance to the Bank and vaults was effected by false keys and the proceedings of the robbers seem to have been conducted in the most confident and deliberate manner. There was a Large amount of Silver in the Bank which was untouched. There was no watch to the Bank and no other Means of Security adopted but what was afforded by locks. It is said that the key of one of the doors of the Bank was found yesterday in a Creek about a Hundred Yards from the building and a dark lantern was found upon a Bridge in the Vicinity. The directors at a meeting yesterday resolved to offer the Large Reward of $19,000 for the recovery of the Money and detection of the thieves or $5,000 for the recovery of the Money or in Prapor Tion for whatever part of the whole sum May to recovered. The capital of the Frederick county Bank is $175,-000, and it. Did a Large business and was in High credit. The following suggestion in relation to the notes of the Frederick county Bank in the hands of Hona fide holders is made by the president of one of our Banks or. Editor a As the whole Community Are deeply interested in the detection of the robbery of the Frederick county Bank i would suggest As a Means tending this end that the newspapers generally throughout the country recommend to the Bona fide hulders of the notes of that Bank to give immediate notice to the institution of the amounts severally held by them. The aggregate amount in the hands of fair holders May thus a located and the Bank he enabled to Trace Back such portions of the stolen Issue As May be presented for . decision. Tie Augusta states that judge Andrews of the Northern circuit Georgia held at the late term of the Superior court of Oglethorpe county in a capital Case a that a person could not to sworn As 0 witness in a court of Justice Wiio did not believe in the existence of god the obligations of an oath and a future state of rewards and Runi stimets. He maintained with the supreme court of new York that Quot pet Ligion is a subject in which every Man has a right to think according to the dictates of his understanding. It is a solemn concern Between his conscience and his god with which no human tribunal has a right to meddle. But in the developments of facts and the ascertainment of truth human tribunals have a right to interfere. They Are Botvid to see that no Man s rights Are impaired or taken away but through the medium of testimony entitled to belief and no testimony is entitled to credit unless delivered Emder the solemnity of an oath which comes Home to the conscience of the witness and will treat a lie arising from his belief that false swearing Vav Ould expose him to punishment in the life to come. On this great principle rest All our institutions and especially the distribution of Justice Between of Early times. The following extract from m Afee s article has much of interest for All persons who would know the truth in respect to the Early history of this country. By the statement in respect to the Mouth of the Sciota it would seem that opposite Portsmouth was really the first place settled by the Whites on the Ohio River below Wheeling but the settlement was not permanent. It will be seen that it was the shawnees and delawares who were in Possession of Chillicothe in 1773 in the years 1709, 70, and 71, Daniel Boon his brother. Squire Boon and John Stewart came to Kentucky As Hunters the former re Naining in the country part of the two last years. But no attempt was made by Daniel Boon or any other person to make permanent settlements in Kentucky until the month of May and june 1773. Tiie statement made by some writers that Boon attempted to move his family to Kentucky in september 1771, is incorrect As to the Date it was in the year 1773, and failed As i will hereafter show. In the months of May and june 1773, cats. Bullitt Douglass and Hancock Taylor three surveyors descended the Kanawha with a number of men who bad served against the French provinces previous to the peace of 1753, for the purpose of surveying what was called proclamation right for the officers and soldiers engaged in that War. The m Afee company consisting of James George and Robert m Afee and James m cown and Samuel Adams who had left their Homes in Bott Tourt county Virginia for the same purpose United with these surveyors and their companies about Twenty Miles above the Mooth of the Kanawha on the 29th of May and proceeded with them to the Ohio River in five canoes and one Bat teau where they found five Delaware indians with their families going Down to the Falls for the purpose of Hunting. The company remained at the Mouth of the Kanawha until the 1st of june when capt. Bullitt with three of l is own men and those of the Delaware indians crossed the Ohio to go to Chillicothe on the Sciota in order to have a Good understanding with the Shawnee and Delaware Indiana a the balance of the company proceeded Down the Ohio examining the land and creeks from the Mouth of big Sandy Down to the Mouth of the Sciota where they arrived on the 11th of june and were joined by capt. Bullitt and his men on the 13th, they having come Down the Sciota in a Canoe. The capt. Reached Chillicothe on the 6th of june and was received with great pomp and apparent hospitality. Being detained several Days in a wigwam m in the suburbs of the town he was at length marched up to the Council ii Hise by about 115 warriors and made his speech on the 9ih of june and on the next Day received a Friendly answer. The Ini inns had no objection to the Whites settling and cultivating the land but reserved to themselves the right of Hunting on it. I have copies of these papers and a letter from Richard Butler a White Man who Veu a me indians explaining to Captain bullitt the views and feelings of tie indians at that Tia a which will explain the causes of future hostility. James m Afee and m Afee in their journal say Quot at the South of the siota on our Side of the Olio Kentucky Side there is a Small town of Nineteen or Twenty houses completely built some of Square logs hewed and clapboard roofs with Pood doors windows and chimneys and some cleared ground which appear to have been built by the French during the last War. After capt. Bullitt rejoined the company they proceeded Down the Ohio to the Mouth of Licking which was explored by to Bert m Afee thirty or forty Miles up. Here or. Douglass remained behind to make s Mic surveys and cats. Bullitt and Taylor and their companies went on to the big Bone lick where a Delaware Indian apparently upwards of 70 years old in answer to a question put by a tics m Afee observed that the Bones were Quot just so Quot when he was a boy and that he knew nothing of the animal to which they belonged. Isaac Hite another Surveyor who had embarked at Pittsburgh or fort Pitt As it was then called overtook bullitt near the Mouth of the big Miami. During �4fh and 5th Days of july they remained at the big Bone lick. At the Mouth of the Kentucky or Levisa As what ten in the m Afee journal River a it. Bullitt and his company parted with the m Afee company and Hancock Taylor on the 8lh of july capt. Bullitt intending to go on to the Falls ail Hancock Taylor and the m Afee company to ascend the Kentucky River into the Interior. On the 9th of july they arrived at Drennon s lick where they found John Dren non and Martin Bracken who had anticipated them two Days by crossing the country the Day before they reached the Mouth of the Kentucky. This was Ever afterwards considered in no favourable Light by the balance of the company. At Drennon s lick there were thousands of Buffalo Deer and Elk and Many bears wolves eagles and other Birds of prey for Miles round the land was swept of grass and the Buffalo roads were described by James m affect to be As Lar Quot quote As the Road leading to a Williamsburgh Virginia. Here James m Afee and Samuel Adams encountered a perilous adventure in passing to ibid the outskirts of the lick. A gang of nearly five Hundred buffaloes became alarmed and commenced running towards where they stood there was no turning them. Adams had barely time to scamper up a leaning Mulberry and m Afee behind a tree about two feet in diameter and there by close pressing sideways the horns of the Buffalo scraping the bark on each Side he stood until the storm was Over while Adams Hung on the Mulberry like a Coon closely eyeing his Friend to whom he could afford no Relief. This incident furnished Many an evening s amusement to them and their friends. From Drennon s lick they pursued a Southeast course along the Buffalo Road and crossed the Kentucky River l Low where Frankfort now stands at the place where the dam and lock Are now built and proceeded us the Branch to a Fine Spring where they hid a fish gig and Tomahawk at the Root of a gum tree the same Spang i expect from which the town of Frankfort is now watered thence passing Down the Valley leading to the present Penitentiary Robert m Afee Hud six Hundred acres of land surveyed including the whole town of Frankfort and All the Marsh land which was afterwards Overl de into a valuable Meadow by the Hon. John Brown. This was on the Lois of july 1773, and was the first Survey Ever made on the Kentucky River. From the Ciuc Annali Gazette. Foreign news. Arrival of the Mahdi Mia at Bostons thirteen Days later. The steam slip Caledonia arrived at Boston on the 19th inst. Having sailed from Liverpool on the 4lh. The news brought by her is interesting and somewhat important. The British Queen arrived out on the 28h april Havi Tik been sixteen Days and a half on the passage. By her the news of president Harrison s death was received in England and by the Acadia which i arrived at Liverpool on the 2d of May that of the accession of or. .

Runor after Rumor was set afloat Day Ai Ler Day but each new one contradicted the last and the most lingering Hopes were giving a Ilace to despair. The British parliament was enga Rcd in a preliminary talk about the Corn Laws. The ministry had been Defeated twice on the Irish registration question and it was for a time supposed they would resign. On the 3d May however a disposition to do no such thing was very plainly manifested. In the House of commons lord John Russell contemptuously refused an answer to a question of colonel Sicili Worpe whether they intended to resign. In the House of lords the Earl of Ripon on the same Day in the course of debate said Quot one Tun Ltd he knew wich was that Bis Noble Friend Viscount Melbourne would not be Able to carry on the the announced Aliou of the parliament upon the Corn Laws was to be to the extent of establish ii a fixed duty on the importation of foreign Grain. Viscount Melbourne of attired the Iii asure and lord John Russell bad Given notice that he should introduce it into the House of commons on the 7th Moy. The proposed modification was the Universal topic of conversation and gave Rise every where to exciting discussions.

The new York commercial advertiser to i hich we Are indebted for the Nevis brought by the Columbia presents the following summary of proceedings in the British parliament. The Plouse of commons resumed its session after the easter recess on the 20th of april. Or. Hume brought up the outrage committed by the Earl of Cardigan in causing the sentence of flogging to be carried into execution on sunday immediately after service and in the very place occupied As a the War Secretary or. Macauley attempted a sort of vindication or rather apology for the Earl but admitted that the proceeding Vas one which he could not countenance there was precedent for it indeed but it was nevertheless highly Cen curable. Such notice has been taken of it in the proper Quarter As would prevent a recurrence. This notice subsequently appeared in the form of an official reproof from the commander in Saief the other business of tie evening was of no interest the members not being in a humor for work so soon after their Holyday. The next evening their was no quorum. On the 22d the lords met but did nothing of importance. In the commons great numbers of petitions Wera presented for the abolition of Church rates and the repeal of the Corn Laws. ,.
