met in Baltimore on Monday last.
REJECTION OF THE BRITISH
It will be recollected the locofocos of the
House of Representatives voted to take up
the anti-tariff bill on the eve of the Virgin
ia elections, and the loco presses made a
great noise about it, asserting that it would
pass a triumphant majority. We then
were satisfied that this noise was all for
''buncombe," and that so soon as the Vir
ginia elections were over and the business
packed for the Baltimore Convention, the
bill would be killed by its own friends.
Such has been the case. We subjoin be
low the yeas and nays on the rejection of
the bill. The vote was on laying the bill on
the table, and resulted as follows, Ayes 105

CCT'The democrats hold meetings to-day
in the different townships in tho county,
for the purpose of nominating candidates.
They proceed as at an election, and the per
sons receiving the highest number of votes
will be tho candidates. A candidate for
Senator, Representatives and Clerk, are to
be chosen all to It leatcn in August ntut.
rO3 Wo give tins w .. the material pa ,s
of Mr. Van Buren's letter on tho subject
of Texas and annexation. Mr. Clay's and
Mr. Benton's letters, on the same subject
havo been published in previous numbers.
They all view the subject in pretty much
the same light and express their views in
a manner peculiar to themselves: Mr. Clay
in bold, common sense, straight-forward
language Mr. Benton in equally as bold a
manner, but rendered disgusting nnd sick.
cning, by tho egotistical vein mat is me
prominent characteristic in all his writings
while Mr. Van Burcn clothes his ideas with
such a profundity of words as to render it
somewhat difficult to get at his true mean
ing, if, indeed he meant to be understood at
all. His letter on this subject, however, is
clearer than some pnpers which have eman
ated from the same source. It is so clear
that the southern democracy, with "Ritchie''
of the "Richmond Enquirer" at its head,
have declared they cannot support him for
the Presidency, nnd have given notice to
that cfloct. The Globe and Col. Benton,
arc still lor V an, and a pretty warm dis
cussion has for some timo been going on
between the two factions while various
members of Congress have taken sides, and
addressed their constituents, severally
charging each other with under-handed
meanness to defeat the party. The Con
vention for the nomination of a candidate
for President and Vice President met in
Baltimore on Monday last, and the matter
was doubtless disposed of. We will most
probably give the action of the Concn
tion in our next.

RIOT AND MURDERS IN HULA-
There has been a dreadful outbreak be
wcen the Native Americans nnd foreign
ers of Philadelphia. The Riot began thus:
The Natives held a meeting in Kensington
to rejoico as some of the papers state over
their lato victory in New York. This was
attacked and dispersed by foreigners. On
Monday the Cth mst., another meeting was
eM which was attacked and dispersed.
the Natives retreating and defending them
sches with stones and pistols. Eater ac
counts stato that tho fust reports of the
nfl'nir were greatly cxngerated but from
all wo can learn wo have stated tho origin
of the riot correctly. Several men were
killed in this ulfray and a number wounded.
I ho uccounts arc so disconnected tliat we
aro not ablo to distinguish the party by
which tho damage to tho houses in Ken
sington was caused. They evidently seem
to have been written under great excite
ment. Several houses were spoiled and
heir furniture broken up. The Irish fired
on the Natives from the windows.
The Natives held a meeting on Tuesday
the 7th and adjourned to tho corner of
Second and Master Sts., when they pro
ceeded with their flag and occupied the
market place, Several guns were lired at
them lrom tho windows opposite, one man
killed and several wounded. The houses
were then attacked, and the firing com
menced briskly and four or five men were
killed and a number wounded. A great
deal of property was also destroyed. In
the afternoon the houses on Ladwaiiader
St. were burned down. No engines were
allowed to approach them. The military
force under Gen. Ladwallader were or
dered out, and reached the spot about dark.
Quiet followed; all the firing ceased. Sev
eral men were arrested, John Talari was
taken up as the murderer of one of the
slain and while being conveyed to prison
was almost killed by tho mob. The Na
tives held another meeting and passed reso
lutions against the murderers. They then
proceeded to the scene of riot. Here an
Inshman who had shot an American was
caught. Two pistols were fired at him;
ho wa9 then seized, a rope was put around
his neck, but he was not executed as had
been proposed. He was committed to jail
to answer for the muider of Rhincdollar
one of thoso killed in the morning. The
Hibcrnia Hose House from which shots
were fired, was burned down. A square
of hou-es in Market St. was also burned!
Three men were killed and a number
wounded, and the city in a scene of tre
Wednesday morning, the excitement was
st'll very great, and rumors of great num
bcrs killed and wounded were flying over
the city. The Irish were said to be arm
ing themselves, and pouring into the city
from the surrounding country, St. Michael's
church was occupied bv them. A mass
meeting of the Natives was held on Wed
ncsday, and addressed by a number of
speakers. Resolutions were also passed.
Ihe Catholic Bishop issued a card, calling
upon all to avoid occasions of excitement,
and shun public assemblies. The military
were stationed to suppress the riots, and
largo crowds ot persons assembled to wit
ness the devastation that had been commit
ted. A number were engaged in search
ing the houses of tho Irish for fire arms,
A number of the tenants of the houses are
thought to have perished in the flames.
number of fires broko out near the places
where the fires took place the day before.
As the day advanced, the excitement in
creased. At twelve the Irish in the vicinity
of tho late liofs for squares around were
moving out ot their houses in great trcpr
dation, the military affording them protec
tion. Several rows of buildings were set
on fire and burned. At half past two St.
Michael's church and the adjoining resi
dence of the Priest was set on fire, and
with some frame buildings near were nil
destroyed. The Priest escaped with diffi
culty through the aid of the military.
At four, the Fpmalc Seminary at the
corner of Second and Phoenix St. was
burned. Alarming repoits of the Irish
aiming themselves and concentrating at
Richmond were in circulation. A great
many families were turned out of house
and home. During the burning of the
church the mob continued to shout, and
when the cross at tho peak of tho roof fell
they gave three cheers. A temperance
store opposite the Seminary, was attacked
by the mob and completely riddled. The
volley by which a Mr. Wright was killed
on the day before was said to have been
fired from this house. The first brigade
under the command of Major Gen. Patter
son, who was accompanied by Sheriff
McMichnel, arrived on the ground. Pre
vious to the junction of tho military, the
mob made a rush on the bayonets of Page's
troops and defied them to fire with loud
threats. The moment was critical, when
the Col. appealed to them as Americans
when they gave hint three cheers and re
tired. At G o'clock tho rioters proceeded
to the house of Alderman Clark and gutted
his house, demolished his windows and
threw his furniture out of doors; all his
papers were destroyed. At half past eight
another outbreak occurred. A house in
Master St. was stoned. Harmony court
consisting of C or 8 houses was destroyed.
About half past 0 Mayor Scott was in
formed that St. Augustine's church would
bo attacked. Ho immediately repaired with
the city police to the spot, and addressed
the crowd. He also issued a proclamation
calling upon nil good citizens to resist nil
attempts to disturb the public peace. The
crowd still continued to incrcaso, and a
little before ten fire was communicated
to the church by a boy about 11 years old.
The fire increased rapidly and in a few
moments burst from tho windows. At
twenty minutes past ten the cross on the
stecplo fell with a loud crash. The steeple
fell in a few minutes afterwards scattering
fire and cinders upon the surrounding build
ings. Great excitement now prevailed
throughout the city. On Thursday the
riots were not renewed, and quiet and
order was preserved throughout the city as
well us Kensington The house adjoin-
ng St. Augustine's church were partially ;
destroyed. A few demonstrations were
mnde in front of one or two churches but
tho positive assurance by the military olli
ccrs that they would shoot down any man
who would attempt to renew the crimes
of the previous evening served to preserve
order. Ihe demagogues who iinye cone
so much to excite foreigners against the
native citizens havo much to nnswer for.
Wc are perfectly willing under wholesome
restrictions to grant to foreign emigrants
a homo on our shores with nil the privileges
of citizens, but it cannot bo supposed that
they willl bo permitted to interfere with
our rights, or disturb others in tho enjoy
mcnt of their privileges.
lho Philadelphia bcntincl ot the I4in
says: At present there is little or no ex
citement. The pcoplo seem to have settled
down into solemn reflection; reason has
resumed her throne. Wc can snfely say
that the scenes of riot which havo dis
graced our city, are over, and not likely to
occur again, from tho fact that the uni
versal voice of tho people has been raised
in condemnation against those engaged in
them, and their instigators.
tO'Gcn. Jackson has written another
letter on the subject of annexation. Wc
have not room for the entire letter, but give
the concluding paragraphs. Wc fear
things have gone too far for Van Burcn to
profit by tho intimation in the last para
graph of Jacksons letter, Hut as circum
stances alter cases, and as Van Burcn al
ways writes in a manner that will bear any
construction, we should not be at all sur
prised if he has not already written anoth

CCTDr. Penn, of Saline, has declined the
office of Elector fur that district. Gen
Shields, of Pettis, takes his place.
L7A great many tu enquiries bc-
ngmado daily of tho whereabouts of our
fellow townsman, Major Josiah Fisk, we
make the following extract from tho Han
nibal Journal in order that his friends may
know that ho is still in the field, pouring
thunder into the corrupt clique, of this vi
cinity, whenever occasion offers.
'When we reached tho ground, Mr. Josiah
Fisk, of Howard county, was alroady on the
stand, holding forth upon the propriety of dis
tricting the Stato. He showed the district system
to be tho only doinocralio mtthort oi electing
members to Congress, and on the other hand
that the general ticket plan was fraught with
tyranny, that under it mon were chosen by cau
. i .i i.i i ..i i
cuses, and electee witouier Known to me uopie
or not; thnt under this system it is impossible for
tho people to beconio acquainted with their rep
resentatives, or for the latter to foci a proper re-
ponsibility to tho former. Mr. r . said the op
posers ol llio district system, now wncn nicy
find tho current of popular opinion setting so
strong against them, profess to be in favor of it,
and this reminded himol n certain tellow wliosa
name was Joe, who attempted to jump from the
top of n church stoeplo. Having placed a largo
quantity of cotton on the ground whore he ox-
fiected to alight, he ascended the steeple and
eaped off. When he had got about half way
down, a fiiend below informed him, that some
mischiovious person had thrown broken glass
among tho cotton, and if ho came down then:,
ho would fret his shins cut to pieces. "And
what," says he, "do you think Joe did?" "Why
ho turned right about and went back again to
the top of steeple!" So tho "Hards" finding
they have avowed opinions which will not meet
tho approval of the pcoplo, are very willing to
change their ground; but they will find out it is
too late, and that there is no possibility of thoir
getting off without broken shins. The speaker
illustrated many of his positions with anecdotes
of a very emusing character, which we havo not
space to insert, nor are we able to give o full
report of all tho positions taken in his address.
At the close of his remarks, he adverted to the
fact that candidates for office are accustomed to
speak of the great deeds they had dono or in
tended to do. As lor lnmselt lie said mat lie
could not boast of much that he had accom
plished; but as for what he should do, he prom.
iscd to effect as much as those who had been
sent to Congress from Missouri, lie said it had
often been said by the Whigs, that when they
inquired what great deeds Martin Van Huron had
done, it was answered them that Gen. Jackson
gained tho battle of N. 0. Upon the same prin
ciple he might say for himsclf.lhat his father helped
Lien. Jackson hglit tho battle ol JN. Urleans, lo
the v higs he said, that if they were not disposed
to assist tho "bulla, to retrain at least lrom giv
ing succor to the "Hards," and stand off and
see that there should be a fair fight. But if they
were inclined out of two evils to choose the least,
ho asked them to help tho "Softs, and above
all, to vote for him particularly, as ho was the
least man in statute among the candidates and
consequently the least evil."
The transcendant merits of Mr. Clay are
constantly extorting compliments from his
most determined opponents. At a late lo
cofoco meeting in Monument Square, Bal

spoke of the Whig candidate for tho Pres

Tobacco The active demand and brisk
competition, noticed in our last Wednes-
lav s review, continues unabated; and in
the operations of the week, prices have
been steadily maintained. Fine leaf to
bacco, of which there is very little arriving,
is most inquired for by manufacturers and
shippers, and if properly handled and cured,
would bring from $i to 4 50 per 100 lbs.
A considerable portion of the receipts con

quoted say for damaged, inferior and trashy H
a lc; common 2a 8; fair to good 3 a 3J; fair to
20pd 3 a 3J; fiiie to choice 4 a 5c. These quota
tions do not embrace tho Mason county and other
descriptions suitable for cigars, tho finer grades of
which are worth 6 a 8c.
