OCT The U. S. exploring expedition seems
to hare penetrated as far south as 70 degrees
oflatitude, during the past season when large
masses of ice appearing in every direction,
and the winter approaching, it was deemed
imprudent to prosecute the voyage further at
that time, and the expedition returned to
Valparaiso and Callao, for the purpose of re
fitting; after which it proceeded to the sand
wich Island, whence on the return of spring it
was expected to go south again, intending to
push into as high Southern latitude as the
state of ice would allow. The spring being
now far advanced in that region, it is sup
posed that the expedition has been sometime
on the voyage South, which it is intended to
prosecute with vigor, until forced by the re
turn of the fall season, which will be our
spring,) to return towards the milder latitudes.
when itis intended to visit the Columbia Kiv
er, the Oregon Territory, and the neighbor
ing coasts and islands, anil return to the Uni
ted States by the way of the Cape of Good
Hope; which it is not expected can be ac
compliahed, in less than two years from this

Cr Work on the Georgia central Rail
road, seems to be progressing rapidly. Eigh
ty miles are completed and in use, and it is
confidently asserted that not less than one
hundred miles, will be finished by the first of
icrrromthe Jeuerson citv papers we
learn that the lead mines of that (Cole,) coun
ty, and the adjoining county of Miller, are
enlisting a considerable share of attention
many discoveries have been made, and those
engaged in digging for mineral, aie said to be
prosecuting their labors with great success
and advancing their fortunes rapidly.
considerable proportion of the land in that
quarter has already been purchased, and from
the stir which is made it is thought that the
period is not distant when not a foot of Gov
' eminent land will remain, in all the mineral
region, "round about? which on account of i
the sterility of soil, has hitherto been looked
upon as worthless. The JeiTersonian Re
publican says that these mines "promise to
surpass in richness even those of Galena.

Kr The Bank of the State of Missouri,
having resolved to receive nothing in pay
ment oi debts, but her own notes, or gold
and sil ver, bas produced perhaps a greater
sensation in St. Louis than was ever expe
rienced mere betore. 1 be citizens have call
ed meetings, which have been nnmeronslv
attended by the business men of that city,
and resolutions have been adopted, by them,
expressive of the opinion, "that it is a poor
rule" mat wont work both ways, and that
as the bank has been mainly instrumental in
circulating the paper of other banks in Mis
souri, she having commenced business, upon
the borrowed notes of other banks, and hav
ing loaned out upon discount, a large amount
in ine paper oi oiner state banks, she ought
in justice still to receive such paper as she
has paid out. Many of the merchants it is
said have withdrawn their deposites; while
others have suffered their notes to be protes
ted, determined not to pay them in other
kinds of money, than that which they receiv
ed from the bank; unless compelled by law.
(r At Quincy Massachusetts, was lately
celebrated the 200th anniversary of the estab

appeared to have been an occasion of great
interest; although, as it fell upon the sabbath,
few ceremonies were observed. An appro
priate discourse was delivered by the Pastor
of the church,' and among other interesting
exercises, the following hymn, (written for
the occasion by the Hon. John Quincy A
dams.) was sung.

TO THE PUBLIC.
TXHEREAS reports and suspicions, inju
" rious to the christian conduct of Elder
John H. Hughes, Lave been afloat in the
church of Christ on Ramsey s creek; and
whereas some brethren were aggrieved & dis
tressed on account of such reports and sus
picions; it was unanimously agreed by Elder
Hughes and the congregation that twelve
referees, chosen from other churches, should
be called; and that the whole matter should
be laid before them for investigation and de
cision, and that by that decision each party
The referees were called, and a quorum
met on the 15th of November 1 839 in Paynes
ville. They retired with Elder Barton W.
Stone, a short time to arrange the business of
the day. - It "was concluded by them, from
communications made, that the whole mat
ter could be more satisfactorily settled by the
parties, Hughes, and the aggrieved part of the
congregation, by mutual acknowledgments
and concessions to each other, than by the
referees as judges. It was suggested to them
that Elder Hughes would pubtickly acknowl
edge that his conduct had been improper, and
that it might be sufficient to excite suspicion,
as it in tact did in the minds of some that
he now could, and did cordially forgive those
wno had indulged those suspicions it was
also suggested to the referees that the congre
gation would acknowledge that sucb of their
members as had heard of these reports, and
had spread them to the injury of Elder
Hughes, and had kept them concealed from
him, had done wrong that the aggrieved in
the church, would also acknowledge, that on
due reflection, they considered that the
grounds of their suspicion of Elder Hughes
were insumcieni to prove mm gumy and
mat tney were wining to abandon an suspi
cions, and torgive and lorget those things for
ever; and give Elder Hughes the right hand
as full confirmation of their peace and har
mony. The referees returned into the house, and
proposed their plan of reconciliation. It was
adopted by the congregation unanimously.
tilder Hughes then rose, and said, he wished
an investigation, but submitted to the plan
proposed; then he made the acknowledg
ment above stated, but solemnlv protested
before God that he was not guilty of the
crime alleged. The congregation also made
the acknowledgments above stated, and a-
greed unanimously to meet Elder Hughes,
and join with him their right hands in token
of their reconciliation; and thai neither par
ty were ever again to name those things af
terwards. Elder Hughes stepped forward,
and every member of the congregation cor
dially advanced and gave him their hand, and
love, and thanksgiving to uod concluded the
meeting. Signed by Elder Barton, W.
Stone, and Enoch Martin Robert Burbridge,
