The search in these hallowed spots is of deep interest to the historical an d scientific world. The Creek War. By the steam packet from Charleston which brings our Southern files up to saturday last we Leatz additional particulars of the movements in the Creek country. Major Lomax with five companies of United states and a Large Quantity of ammunition provisions amp a. Passed through Milledgeville 10th inst. On their Way to fort Mitchell. On the 13th two other companies a a. S. Troops went thro for the same destination. Two companies of artillery and four Hundred marines were expected there on the 14th. The troops collected at Columbus have been removed three Miles from that place in consequence of. The rumoured prevalence there of the Small pox. The escort that conducted Gen. Jessup to the to Scag a Jiva ving been intercepted by be a Micco and his party made a Detour by Chambers court House. The hostile indians Are embodied in two Large parties within Twenty or thirty Miles of Columbus. By a postscript to a letter from Augusta dated june 16, we learn that there was a report that two thousand indians had crossed the Chattahoochee and escaped into Florida committing great depredations. This al Irving intelligence is confirmed by a despatch from major Gen. Irwin to Gen. Wilcox dated fort Irwin june 10. He states that the indians will doubtless make their Way Down the East Side of Flint River or Cross that Stream above the Border of ber county and go through Lee Irwin Lowndes and Ware to the swamps of Florida.

In the late affair of the Gwinette troop of fifty or sixty men with the indians on the East Side of the Chattahoochee near Roanoke our men were dreadfully Cut up Twenty five or thirty Young men being missing. Quot Apt. E. Shackleford commandant of to so reports to gov. Clay of Alabama us ate of Tuskegee May 21st, that or. I. Alexander arrived that morning from Tallahassee having left there for song Ohatchee in in company with Hypoth Rohola and three Hundred Friendly indians sixty of whom belonged to Tallahassee the balance being Tucka hatches.

The advertiser of the 9th, says about eight Hundred volunteers were at Greenville Alabama the 5th and 9th, All in Good spirits. Capt. Walter Smith had been Elee ted colonel of the regiment. N. Y. Star. Whom eve Reliance is to be placed that a it Delaware Indian by the name of Cohon who had just returned from an excursion to the South states that he was at a Council held by he creeks and cherokees to take into consideration a proposition which had been made to them by the mexican general Santa Anna who was pushing his Conquest with unparalleled Success in Texas which country he would soon subdue when it was his intention to attack Louisiana and continue his Conquest As far As st. Louis As he considered the country South of that place As belonging to his government. He told the creeks and cherokees i hat he had a very Large foot and that he did not wish to press any of his red Brethren under it and that if they would join his Standard be would give them As much land As they wanted in Texas so soon eis he had exterminated the ungrateful intruders from that Cohon also states that the creeks and Chero Iees treated the proposition of the mexican general with great contempt that they tramped his letter under foot and sent word to him that they had a country of their own which they were Able and willing to defend and As o his big foot they care not to get under thirty do the i Jud heart is the first to sink before contempt it feels the wound More keenly than any other can. Of there is nothing in language that can express the deep humiliation of being received with coldness when kindness is expected of seeing the look but half concealed of Strong disapprobation from such As we have cause to feel beneath us not alone in Vigour of find and spirit but even in virtue and truth. The weak the base the hypocrite Are the first to turn with indignation from their fellow mortals in disgrace and whilst the really Chaste and pure suspect with caution and censure with mildness these traffickers in Petty sins to plume themselves upon their immaculate conduct sound the alarm Bell at the approach of guilt and clamor their anathema upon their Mower and cowering prey. From Florida. By the Charlo ston steam packet arrived yesterday we learn that an express had reached st. Augustine the evening of the loth inst bringing intelligence from Gen.

The growth of Cotton. The immense importance of the Cotton Trade of the United states and the great influence it exerts upon the wealth and Prosperity of the country is a subject of Gre it interest to every american. When we reflect upon the fact that before 1780 hot a single Pound of Cotton was exported from the United states and compare it with its gradual increase from that period until the present Day we cannot but be surprised at the immense extent and importance of that Branch of Trade. In 1789 there were raised in the United states one Milhon of pounds. In 1799, Twenty millions. In 1809, eighty two in 1819, one Hundred and sixty seven millions. In 1829, three Hundred and sixty five millions and in 1834, four Hundred and sixty millions showing an increase of Over four Hundred and fifty millions in a Little More than forty years. The whole crop of the world now equals nine Hundred millions of pounds per annul. It is estimated that two pounds per head Are now consumed throughout the world and that the consumption is greater than the crop or the demand greater than the Supply. From this fact we May in Ier that the Price of Cotton will be gradually advancing proving thereby that the production of Cotton will continue to enrich our country and ultimately bring the balance of Trade in favor of the United states. The immense amount of capital employed in the raising of Cotton in the United states exceeds belief. It is estimated by the Secretary of the Treasury to be about seven bundled and forty millions of dollars exclusive of thirty millions temporally invested or circulating. When we consider the great increase of the consumption o the article the growing demands for it occasioned by the commercial Enterprise of the country the general favor for the manufactured material its warmth durability and cheapness compared with All other kinds of manufactured cloth and the facilities of producing it in its finished state by the every Day improve ments in machinery we cannot but perceive its importance to the wealth and Enterprise o the country. The u. States never need be afraid of Competition in the production of the raw material the superiority of the article grown in this country will always place american Cotton above All other and for this reason it will always find a ready Sale in foreign markets. What then Are the inferences to quot be drawn from these facts that the Prosperity of the country depends Vbry much upon the production of Cotton. That investments in Cotton lands will always be Safe and will be sure to yield Large profits that the Commerce of the country must go on increasing and thai it is the duty of the government to extend to it every facility in its Power. Philadelphia the third commercial City in the Union mus continue to increase in wealth and resources and it depends very much on the Enterprise intelligence and sagacity of its Nie chants whether their City is to reap the Benefit of this state of things. The Prosperity a the City of quot Philadelphia is air the hands a its capitalists and merchants and upon them depends its fun to re greatness. The stars. There is a prettiness in the following article that commends the whole to the Eye and ear of one accustomed to feel. It is what those who cannot write and Are too stupid to comprehend usually denominated the mind of an educated Man seeks condiments to its grosser aliments and he who has not a relish for Chaste tasteful composition is Only making an affectation of an appetite for the solid productions of the mind. He is like the Juggler who swallows penknives and scissors hot for the Sake of nourishment but to excite astonishment. He who is always wrinkling us brow Over extracts from Smith say and Lichardi with a View of puzzling others with what he does not understand himself is like the Bibber who gets intoxicated with a of whiskey and abuses those who May sneer at his appetite. The Man of True taste studies varieties in his entertainments cultivates and gratified a refined appetite and rises rom his meal with his guests a Wiser and a bet or Man.

There is no such thing As Independence in the world nor will there be As Long As Man and the Earth exist. Men May stalk the streets and amid the stare of acquaintances and the idea of being covered with dress imagine themselves in want of nothing More but when their Independence comes to the test they will find they depend in a direct line upon the meanest of mortals.

He advertises his houses and lands for Sale. The tide of speculation being at the Low fist ebb of course there is no Sale then he begins to acknowledge his dependence and affirms that he mistook the meaning of the word that it meant no More than to be continually dependent. He regrets that he Ever sought Fortune yet nevertheless determines to profit by experience.
