We congratulate our readers on the Gratis. Flying intelligence that the Bills for settling the Boundary of Texas for establishing a territorial government a new Mexico for the same in Utah an1 for the admission of Coli. Forma into the Union have passed both a houses of Congress and Are Bow Law of the land. The senators and representatives from California have taken their seats. The fugitive slave Bill still remains to be acted upon by the House. Thus is the exciting and agitating question of slavery virtually settled we Hope for Many years if not for Ever. The rumblings of. Discontent Are still heard from the Ultra lists of the South and is Orth but the great Maess of sober Minde d moderate men of All parties will Hail this consummation with Joy and this glorious Union will now press Forward to the fulfil Lent of its grand Mission. It is True that in alienation of feeling has been engendered a which nothing but time will obliterate but the wound will in the end be healed with As Little serious injury As under the Circum stances we could have a right to expect. P. S. Since the above was put in Type we learn by Telegraph that the House passed the fugitive slave Bill on thursday last ,1hu completing the settlement of the ques hons above alluded to. The Bill now awaits pit president s signature to become a Law. The True ground. An Able writer in a series of articles on the Bank question published in the states Man is taking the True ground on the subject. He shows what is really the True platform of the democracy. They do not War against r the legitimate business of tanking or any thing that tends to facilitate the transaction of our multiplied and complicated business flairs. But it is against the present Privi sgt d system against the Legal authorization of paper promises not based upon the Legal currency against giving to a favored Lew the Power of circulating their credit is Money against the legislative Power of wealing these favored institutions or of treating or authorizing any institutions with pedal Powers a the Money business. They wish to take from the legislature All control Over the subject More than it has Over All other kinds of business and that is to re Strain it within such Bounds As to prevent fraud and injury. They desire to see the constitutional currency of Gold and Silver the Only currency although Bills of Exchange certificates of Deposit or even prom Tsor y Bills might As the wants of business required circulate As the representatives of Money or of Gold and Silver somewhere de posited to redeem them. Were the present system done away and All Power taken from the legislature to establish another the legitimate business of banking which in the present Day cannot and will not be dispensed with would grow up rapidly on a secure and stable a foundation. The present rag currency would be consigned to the flames Large amount of Gold and Silver would be infused into the general circulation so Large As to prevent any More of the terrible revulsion we have before experienced a Small amount of paper would circulate for the convenience of business of a kind Al ways redeemable and in quantities never to exceed by any. Appreciable amount the True wants of Community. Competition would always keep it . Such we believe is the True democratic ground on this subject and on this ground Success must inevitably Crown our efforts for it is a ground in favor of Liberty and fluidity against tyranny and privilege. Whig doings. A very pretty Little piece of adroit Man Geinert was played off a few Days since among the whigs of this Region. The county treasurer died recently leaving about 18 months of an unexpired term to be filled by appointment of tie commissioners. Some of tar in wit Saoi rants to the honors and r emoluments of the station and some too with no mean claims upon the party. But their cake was All dough. The present Sher Iff whose place is soon to be filled by another not being quite ready to give the Pep Spoo n into other bands played a card that Euc Breed his competitors and obtained him the appointment. The democrats having no hand in the game Are pot troubled by any disappointments Andas Charley is a very lever fellow we. Would As soon see him taking to it m anybody else. But using whig spectacles a can t help exclaiming Tiow it looks Cut both houses of Congress have agreed Jeo Rawi the 8th last ? the Havre de Bank swindle. If anything could open the Eye of Community to the evils growing out of privileged banking we should suppose the late swindling transactions of this chartered institution would do so. It is an instance of downright robbery Many degrees worse than hundreds for which the perpetrators Are doomed to inf Ceable disgrace and imprisonment. The Means used by this rag concern to effect its fraudulent designs was to push out Large quantities of its. Worthless trash at a great distance from Home. The ame course is pursued by almost Alt Banks. In the one Case it was done with an express intention to cheat. Ordinarily the intention is Only to keep the notes of the Bank out to put off the Day of redemption to draw a Large interest on Mere Eredio what enables this to be done in either Case t Sim ply because of the authority of Law be cause Competition is prohibited in favor of a inv pledged class thus legalizing not Only the legitimate business of these institutions but All the frauds which their exemption and privileges tempt them to commit. At the door of untaran table legislation lies the guilt of All the Rasca Lity and robbery committed by Banks. Take away their Legal immunities and the people would soon learn to keep them within Bounds. We Hope the Day is not far Distant when. Ohio and Many of her sister states will cease to be cursed with these legalized plunderers. " " California Bui has at last become a state the Bill admitting Ber into the Union having passed the House on the 7th inst. Now that the Bill is passed what will the South do. She has threatened disunion in Case califor Nia was admitted but will she attempt such thing doubtful. Trickery has been re sorted to lans concocted the people of the United states threatened with internal War and everything which could tend to defeat the will of the majority has been done by the South but it has All been work in vain. As yet none of the dire Ful consequences foretold by Dis unionists have come to pass. The Sun of our Prosperity continues to Shine As Bright As Ever and not even a Cloud dark ens the horizon of our glorious Union those who grasped for Power who hoped to raise themselves by crushing the Union Hare been or will be disappointed. We Trust to the Good sense of the people and have Faith that they will act and decide rightly As to whether they will sever the Union and Loose " their nationality their Freedom their All or stand by the Union and let the Union .1 stand messes. Fremont and 6 win senator from California have been sworn in taken their seats and have gone to work in Earnest for their constituents. Much is to be done for them in a Short space of Lime for Congress will soon adjourn. Upon the admission of California much might be written. What a subject for re Flection there is a state now upon the Western confines of our land and emigration must soon begin to flow say soon because it seems but yesterday since the american Republic consisted of but thirteen states while now the stripes and stars wave Over thirty ont. Talk of Ohio As a Western state she is now a Middle and s Century hence will be an Eastern state. California has 1,000 Miles of sea coast and extends 300 Miles Back to the mountains containing perhaps 300,000 Square Miles or enough territory to make six states As Large As Ohio. Utah embraces a territory of about 200,000 Square Miles and new Mexico probably 100,000 Square Miles. These immense districts were brought under the benign influence of our institutions by the Wise policy of our government and the bravery of our soldiers. Never since the formation of the Union has there been a More eventful period in our history than the last five years. Texas has been annexed Mexico Bumble four states have been admitted into the Union and another is wait ing patiently for admission and our Bounds Ries extended around vast territories. " Hon or to whom Honor is department of the Interior. This department it would seem must Stilt go a begging for a head or Jenkins of Georgia having declined. The Washington correspondent of the new York evening Post gives the follow ing As the secret of or. Mcennan s Resig nation. Or. Mckennan was dissatisfied Nith the chief clerk or. Goddard son in la w to or. Vinton of Ohio who is said to have assumed to make or Promise appointments even after or. Mckennan s arrival without consulting his Superior. He found As the Story goes that Nis i Reedom of action was Bam Perea Ana Tram Meriea it the proceed Ines of the late secretory to such a degree that he bad merely stepped into the position of an executor with the will annexed. He repudiates the will and declines the Trust As some of his friends state change of air and business likewise have bad a deleterious effect upon his health. The state of confusion and embarrassment in which he finds the department multiplies the labors which none Rev belons to its administration and or. Mckennan prefers Leisure to hard Jackson Union. We Are sorry to learn that the above paper has been discontinued. Is it possible that Jackson county in which the democrats have a majority of some hundreds will not support a paper. We say will not because Bev can if they will. If this be the Case it is truly s lamentable one. The editors their valedictory i the democracy Are now without a a n in this county. How Long this will continue to be so May depend on the Coue which May be penned by the whig Organ in. Place. But so far is we Are concerned. We Hare not any curiosity in again engaging in the business of Audi issuing a up Iulai is the Hon. J. L. Tat lob will accept our thanks for a valuable document on the be zoloft of Uke Superior and its Vic Juicy big one of the document message. Brick Makin g Portsmouth. We have taken some trouble to the number of Brick which have been and Are to to made in Portsmouth during the present year. Some May consider our figures Loo High but we have the beet authority for them having seen the proprietors of All the Yards except or. Merril. The information in regard to his Yards we obtained from his workmen who perhaps gave As Correct but not to full no account As or. M. Hii Roolf. We cautioned our informants not to give us a larger number of Brick than they thought could be made yet this stated that the number which remains to be made depended a great Deal upon the weather. We have there fore in estimating that number counted upon reasonably favourable weather and we think our. Calculation a tolerably fait one v at eight Yards in and about town there have been and will be made respectively or. Sherer has made 150,000 intends miking 180,000 or. Merril Lover Yard Basmad 540,000 intends to make 300,000 upper Yard has made 600,000 intends making or.

Merrit s upper Yard which to will say is 158,000, making the number at the close of the season amount to four millions and a half i of this number of Brick six buildings now up or in course of construction re nearly two millions namely t Iron Row 600.000 Conway s were House 300,000 new school House 350,000 presbyterian Church 350,000 Baptist Church 210,000 episcopal Church 175,000 1,085,000 those Are the largest buildings that i be erected this Jear and after deducting. 1 in l i .1 t 1uie no much of ditch Stoa in Mem irom int number made there will still be left 2,357,i 000 for other buildings. Al we presume however that All i Henrici made will not be Luid Liia Semaon As w understand that several of our citizen have by spoken a Large number into Din to use them Early next Spring. But May be considered not far from Correct t say Piui in m eau of me Hon there will have been put up three Mil Lions and a half of Brick i 1 the value of the Brick made this year suppose the Price per thousand rt4,00, would be $18,000. The number of hands employed in the various Yards is about 00. Altogether to May consider thut ports Mouth bus flattering prospects ahead that he has taken n Start in growth which nothing that is Likely to occur Enn Stop. Let rival towns and railroads be located where they May Portsmouth will continue to grow. 1 he Rich Mineral Region around her with the Railroad communication she will have with it will build her up. The moment the first shovel full of dirt is thrown upon the Railroad Grade a new Era in her history will commence and the Speed of her growth will be doubled truly there s Good time coming.1" Fittra telegraphic dispatch states that on the receipt of the news at Charleston s. A that Tho California Bill bad passed the Puoplo acc Limo furious. A Public Demon stration was gotten up and the Flag of the Union trodden under we Hope for the Honor of South Carolina there maj be some mistake in this. Still the sent meals which have been uttered by some of the chivalry of the South lately allow us scarcely a Hope that the statement is in True. The Caze Novins or such of them As were engaged in thu. Late demonstrations at those places Are fit subjects for the mad hous the for mor recommend the slaves of tits South to Rob their masters of their Money and run away. The Char estonians trample the glorious stripes and stars under their feet because a state which has adopted a Freo Constitution has been admitted into the Union both seem to forget that we have a Constitution and Laws.

The drayman and omnibus Drivers Are Allia a pleasant mood in Nti Cipallono of a Rich Harvest from hauling articles and persons out to the show grounds about two Miles from the City.

English pauperism. V the annual report of Tho poor Law Board of England for Tho Yea 1849, has just made its appearance. It gives a Large amount of statistics relating to the causes and cure of pauperism in great Britain where by the Way the n. A Post says there Ore More paupers Tymn in any other country in Europe except Belgium. During the year 1849, the sum expended for the Relief of the poor in England and Wales was 5,702,963. In 1848, the sum similarly expended was 6,180,-76 5, showing a decrease in Tho expenditure of the More recent year of 367,802. It seems that one put of every 10 of the British population is receiving alms.

We see a so by the Jackson Standard that the peo ple of that county Are notified to vote on the question of a subscription of 9100,000 to our Rood at the october election and from what we ran learn there is Little doubt that the vote will be a Large one in favor of such subscription.

The Brownsville Tex As Sentinel of the 21st, hits the follow ing notice of this indomitable frontiersman w e were crammed on saturday evening last to witness the arrival in this City of that distinguished frontiersman Harry love after an absence of Over six months upon an exploring expedition up the Rio Brando. Six months ago this adventurous Man left Here with a Small keel boat manned with twelve hands with orders from Mii Jor Chapman to ascend the River As far As to could find it practicable. He ascended the Rio Aurande to the immense distance of 1,400 Miles from its Mouth being As at present computed 1,000 Miles above us present head of navigation and again descended the Stream in safety. Lie reports the River practicable for navigation with steamboats after the removal of some few obstructions for 1,000 Miles. Copt. Love has brought Back with him several specimens of Coal and Mineral Oro which he gathered upon the Banks of the River. One act of this daring Man we cannot refrain from noticing Here. After having at great labor and mental trouble carried his frail bark far up into the mountains through which our Noble River holds its Way and having come to obstructions which it was beyond the Power of Man to overcome and at which his ascent by water must Stop he planted fast in the solid Rock a staff bearing proudly to the winds the stars and stripes of his country s ban Ner fit memento of the gut ant daring of himself and his Brave Little band.

The Kalida venture has an account of the operations of the agents of this swindling institution in the North Wester n part of Obio. It appears that Large sums were paid out to the Farmers for cattle and the cattle driven off to the East n after some Days it was ascertained that the paper of the Bank was of no value when the far mers who had been swindled out of their cattle went in Pursuit of the rascals who Hart cheated them. They overtook the Rob Bers in Wyandot county and commenced the work of driving Back their cattle. The robbers got out a warrant and had the far mers arrested for Highway robbery where upon the Farmers arrested the robbers for a passing counterfeit Money. At latest accounts both parties were in limbo in upper j Sanau sity Ana waiting the tender mercies of the Law. In the meantime the cat lie have gone to grass the Way sooner or later of All risen Wentner of came or Numan kind. The venture closes its account of this transaction with the following remarks in this is of a piece of the entire system of Bank plunder but is decidedly from be a ginning Tonu one of the coolest acts of the kind that we have known.

And this too at a time when there Are fifty is x of the Safe sound and easy swindling shops of whig Crea Tion in the state. This Money was put in circulation in this state by the Banks of this state and yet one purpose for which those Banks were created was to shut out foreign spurious currency at least the whigs said so.
