him on the maintainance in power of

previous lettpr from Constantinople,
dated the 25th ult.. slates that the la

Louisiana Election. The Picayune
of the 10th inst. says: "The returns
come in slowly, but enough is already
known to render it certain that Mr.

as far as received, give Mouton, (the
Democratic candidate,) a majority of one
thousand six hundred and fifty-one.
Harvest. The harvest season has
thus far been unusually propitious, and
the happy husbandman is gathering in

that the seed time and the harvest shall

Pekjsvllss. The N.York Express
says "Up to the 17th of May, it was

But as a set offto this, we may mention
that a widow woman with three children
arrived in one of the ships, and had
$10,000 about her person."
"Come up and Sign tbe Pledge."
The Missouri Republican says that three

"Clay Pledge" in St. Louis, in one day.
We had thought the Whig party would
not be satisfied with the "Pledge" all on
one side again. They should at least re
quire one yard of Mr Clay for every
three of theirs, and even then they might
catch " a Rowland for an Oliver."

beian of the 8th inst. says, a large num
ber of the prisoners in the hands of the
Royalists of Rhode Island, have been ex
amined and many committed for trial.
They are principally farmers, mechanics,
and laborers. George Eddy, son of the
Lieut. Gov. under the People's Consti
tution, has been sent to prison to await
his trial for treason. Boys from 14 to 18
years of age have been arrested as reb
els, one lad only ten years old has been
committed to prison in Providence, for
trason. On the 4th inst- Gen. T. F.
Carpenter, who has been twice the Dem
ocratic Candidate for Governor of (ha
state was put into prison. The Norwich
News informs us, upon unquestionable
authority, that fifteen prisoners are con
fined in one cell, the size of which is
only 8 by 14 feet. For want of proper
j food, air and treatment, many of them
are sick, i he cholera morbus has bro
ken out amonjr them, and two, Gen.
Sprague and Mr. Smith of Gloster,
have died, neither of whom had takeu
up arms against the King Government.
On the 5th, martial law was declared to
be no longer in force. The Providence
Herald of the 6th says many persons
have been imprisoned without being
charged with any offence whatever. Ty
ranny reigns supreme.
Messrs. Editors: You will please
announce George T. Ashiicrn, Esq.,
of Salt River Tow nship, as a Candidate
for the office of County Justice, for Pike
County, at the ensuing August election.
In making this announcement, we beg
leave to say to those citizens of the
County who are not acquainted with
Mr. Ashburn, that he has been a resi
dent of the county for twenty years or
upwards is a substantial, industrious
farmer, a man of sund judgment, of un
wavering and undoubted integrity, and
of very respectable education and quali
fications, in every essential particular.
He has acted several years as a justice of
the peace, with satisfaction to the com
munity; and we have every assurance
that a little experience, (which all the
present candidates will requre,) will
enable him to fill the office with ability
and advantage to the public. In addition
to the above reasons, Mr. Ashburn is
the only candidate in the whole northern
and eastern portion of the county, and we
consider it essential to the various inter
ests intrusted to the County Court, that
the members thereof should, as nearly as
possible, be elected from the different
sections of the county.
To the Vnters of Pil-. Ccnntij:
Fellow Citizens: As it may not be
crencraiiy known to you that my nase
has heretofore been announced as a can
didate for the office of County Judge, I
take this occasion to have it again placed
before you as one of the candidates for
tion. I do not consider it at all necessa
ry for me, in placing my name before
you, to make any special promises in the
event cf my election. Should it be my
good fortune to be one among those who
arc selected to discharge the important
duties connected with the office, I will
only say that I shall endeavour to act im
partially and promptly, and with due re
gard to the rights and interests of all
concerned. II. G. EDWARDS.

To the Voters of Vikn County:
Having been frequently solicited to
become a candidate to represent, in part,
this County in the next Legislature, I
have uniformly told my friends that I did
not wish to be elected, that I had no po
litical aspirations whatever to gratify,
nevertheless, if the people of the county
thought proper to elect me, I should feel
it my duty to serve them to the utmost
of my abilities. This I say now, but at
the same time I desire and ask of my
friends, not to vote for me, but to cast
your votes for the candidates now before
you, soliciting your suffrages. This
much seems due from me to the gentle
men who are now canvassing the county.
JOHN W. DAVIS.
Houston papers to the 4th inst.
furnish the tollowing intelligence:
"Agreeably to the proclamation of
President Houston, Congress has con
vened at Houston. Oa the 20ih ulti
mo the President delivered his Mes
sage to that body. It is a plain docu
ment, written with perspicuity, and
is principally confined to a statement
ol the embarrassed state of the na
tional treasury. The President is
for disposing of the public lands as
the most prompt way of meeting the
financial exigency. After briefly re
viewing the incursions of the Mexi
cans, and his own course relative to
the preparations for an offensive war,
he submits the whole matter to the
discretion of Congress, recommend
ing especially to ttieir favorable no
tice the national navy.
The Galveston Civilian makes the
"Nations as well as individuals are
at times transported by anger or en
thusiasm, and do things which in their
cooler moods condemn as useless or
injurious. President Houston has
been censured by many for neglect
ing to avail himself of the late excite
ment to invade Mexico, and thus
commit the country,too far to recede,
to a war in which, ia its more com
posed and thinking hours it is not dis
posed to engage. War, it is true, de
pends much lor its success upon the
feeling with which it is waged; but
leeung aione can do nothing. On the
field of battle it may be well to forget
every other consideration in the de
sire for victory; hut prudence is said
to be thp better part of valor, and it
is the part of u skillful General to
ihink for those entrusted to his care,
and restrain their impetuosity when
it is likely to involve them in ruin or
needless danger. It is the part of
iHiy to enter into an enterprise with
out considering the means and chan
ces of success, or the consequences
in case oi failure; the part ot wis
dom to weigh contingencies well, and,
by foreseeing, to avoid disasters.
Rashness leads men into unnecessary
danger or destruction, while true
courage incurs no foolish hazard, and
only sacrifices its possessor when
some great gond is to be attained.
But the President has no right to
dedai e or prosecute a war of inva
sion. The Constitution has given
that power to Congress, nnd that
body has now met to consider the
propriety of uing it. It is necessary
for the piihlic tranqui'ity that the
question should be promptly settled
hy the tribunal having control of it.
The people desire to know wlm:they
have to depend upon, in order that
they may act accordingly, and that
the feverish uncertainty which has
for sfiiue time prevailed may be re
moved. Several small parties of Indians
have recently committed depreda
tions on the northern frontier. In the
conflicts that ensued between them
and the chizf-ns, lives have been lost
on both sides. Colonel Patton was
lately murdered near his plantation in
ihe vicinity of Bexar. It is suppos
ed that the murderers were some ol
the disaffected Mexicans. The son
of Mr. Antor.iit Navarro was recent
ly very dangerously wounded near
Sejuin by Indians. Heavy rains
have la kn in the viucinitv of Victo
ria, and the planters are j rrparin:' to
plant corn again for a summer crop.

Again we have a very dull market to
notice. The stock of Western produce
is much reduced as is usual at this pe
riod of the year; this added to the ex
treme scarcity of money, confines tran
sactions within a very limited space.
The prices we eive below are very near
ly the same as published in our notice of
Saturday last, they are only nominal.
Flour. The receipts of this article for
the past few days, exceeding the demand
for city consumption, and in the absence
of any export demand, the price has de
clined, and holders are willing to accept
of lower rates than they insisted on last
week or even the early part of this. We
now quote superfine $42. and for large
lots taken from the levee, we have no
doubt $4 3-8 would be accepted.
Bacon. There appears to be very lit
tle done in this article. The sales are
all of a retail character, and at former
quotations, viz: lie for shoulders, 3c for
sides, 31 a 4c for hams, canvassed 5 a 6c
as in quality.
Pork. We have nothing encouraging
to state in relation to this article. The
same dullness which has existed for.
months past still prevails. We quote
clear $8, mess $7, prime $41, P O $3 a
31, M O $5l a oj.
Lard, The receipts of this article
during the present week have increased
the stock somewhat. There is nothing
above a retail demand, yet former prices
are fully sustained. We place our quo
tations at 7 a 8, to embrace all qualities.
Grain. There is 6till an active de
mand for corn in the ear and in sacks.
The former sells for 44 a 50c per bbl,
the latter 36 to 38c per bushel in sack.
We hear of no sales of oats. The price
is from 32 to 34 by the quantity; retail
price front store 37i.
Whiskey. The demand is very limit
ed and nrices are much reduced. We
nnlc aalpa marta vesterdav at 16c. The
stock is light.
The rate or discount on me notes oi
the suspended banks varies from hour to
hour. The closing rates at 3 o'clock
yesterday, (Brokers selling prices,)
were nearly as follows: Lmon 17 dis;
Mechanics' and Traders' 11 to 121 dis;
City, 19; State, 17; Consolidated, 33 to
33 1-2; Citizens, 34; Carrollton 15; Ca-
