DAVID M. CAMP, of Dciby.
Til P. ENEMY ALARMED.
The cfRci.il journal contains a grand
Manifesto of the party, in (lie shape of a
1'rospcctus fur the Extra Globe. It is in
miny respects on extraordinary document.
Its immediate cause is Ui'. result of the
Virginia election!, and the stale of nffairs
in Pennsylvania. The faithful are alarmed
nl the signs of I ho Old Dominion. They
fear that the sceptre intended for Mr Van
Burcn will prove a barren sceptre, and that
even now il is in the gripe of an ' unlincal
hand.' No one can read this document
without being convinced that the parly
trcir.hlc fur the fate of their candidate ; and
noono ran rend the orguninnls and com
ments nf the Globe, without feeling that
they have much reason for their apprehen
sions. The turning point of the whole
matter U the cleition in the House. The
Globe i convinced that if the election goes
to Ihe House, Mr Van Burcn will be de
feated: and il predicates this result on the
corruptibility of hit oicn parti. General
Jack-on raid that tlio Dunk would have
bought Jackson men enough in Congress,
to have procured its rccharter, had it not
been for the removal of tlio Depositee.
His organ says now that if Ihe Presidential
election goes to the House, the Bank will
buy over enough Win Burcn men to elect
an opposition candidate. Wc will not dis
pule this. We will yield to tho superior
knowledge of the parties interested in the
subject. We lillle doubt that the Globe
and Mr Van Burcn know tho price of all
the purchasable members of the House ;
and if they arc apprehensive that the Bank
can outbid them, their alarm is unqueslion
nbly founded on good reasons. The fol
lowing is tin calculation uf the Globe :
"In I lie llotife the KeJer.il patty lime a control

thirds against ilia Bank and ils parly, lo n maj irily
ofluo thirds in ils favor in defiance of llie coiulii
uenl will, and the innsi devout parly commitments
previously on the part of the Bpoaiates.
In the above paragraph tho Globe pays an
unintentional compliment to tho integrity
and firmness of Ihe Whiz members of
the election thusdcvolvcs on the House, Its
decWnn depends on the members from
Mnoifsippi and Missouri, who are pledged
lo give their ballots according to tho elec
toral votes of their Slates, which the Globe
knows well are lost to Mr Van Burcn. The
opposition electoral ticket is to be carried,
i.i but two Slates out of tho eight, which
cannot but bo admitted as doubtful New
Jersey, Pennsylvania, Virginia, Georgia,
Indiana, Illinois, Mississippi, and Missouri
and the representatives of those States in
Congress will be obliged to give effect I o
the popular will, or give the he to all their
promises, pledges, and professions.
Ii any. one surprised that the friends of
Mr Van Buren am alarmed ? That they
have dropped their lone of swaggering
confidence, and appeal to the ear of the
parly? That they proclaim the corrupts
bility of their members in Congress ? That
they discard the Pennsylvania Legislature
as Bank men and traitors and are appre
hensive that their evil example will spread
yet more widely ? And 'can we find no en.
coiiragcment in their distnav ? Will not

been neutral. We have noticed of late

This augurs well. It shows that the old
Jackson party is not altogether transferable,

will net admit of misconstruction that the
"surrender of principle" ifihero is any--will

It knows too that in tho struggle of the

admit of no compromise or surrender ; that

opposition in the evenl of the election going

Now the Globe knows very well that N.
Carolina must be ranged by their side ;
leaving the candidates 1 1 to II, with two
doubtful Slates. But suppose that the
electoral vote of Pennsylvania, Virginia.
New Jersey or Indiana is given to an op.
position candidate will the Democratic
representatives ofany of those Slates fail
lo rive, effect to the popular will? Will
the iiisttuclion-loving gentlemen of Virgin

The females who were with her. ware very
suddenly called out of the house to look for
a small child, who had secretly left tha
premises, and when they returned Mrs. D.
was absent, which circumstance excited
suspicion thai she meditated violence to

an old uninhabited house adjoining the on

astonishment, found his wile suspended by

Texas. There is reason, we fear, lo
apprehend serious difficulties between the
United States and Mexico is consequence
of the revolt of Texas, and the encourage
mcnt given thereto by citizens of the U.
Stale. So far as the struggle between
Texas and Mexico is concerned, it miy be
deemed finished for tho present, extin
guished in blood; but the impulse given
by tho Mexicans, to the Indian tribes
within and around our borders, and the
forward movement which General Gainet
is reported to have made upon the Sabine,
may lead lo a direct conflict between the
I loops of the United Stales and the Mex
icans, nr some of their Indian allies. It
would really seem as if too much prosper
ily and mo long continued peace had ren
dercd our people weary of suuilune and
tranquil enjoyment ; for there is in certain
quarters a proclivity to every thing promis
ing excitement and change, which, ol
though no', shared in by the great mass,
may yet have the effect of involving them
in all the consequences of rash and unprin
cipled advent ore. American.
Gen. Gaiivks, as appears by a letter

as many of them as possible mounted
men, in order to keep in check tho Indians
on the frontier of Texas, and to enforce
neutrality between Mexico and the Unite'
Slate. Gen. Gaines eccms lo apprehend

NEW FASHIONED NEUTRALITY.
The Globe, in reply to an article in the
National Intelligencer, has announced that
tho government, so far from countenancing
the attempts now making to raise men and
mnncv for the Texians, is determined to
observe an exact and impartial neutrality,
and ns regards the Tcxian war, to give the
world a sinking specimen or us solemn re
gard for treaties, ond for the rights of for
If such be really the intentions of the
iTovcriimcnt. they have certainly been very
unlucky in selecting una. uamca to carry
them into execution.
This ccntlcman is last from Florida
whither he went in contempt of the orders
of the government! and where he was sur
rounded by tne inuians anu wouiu nave
been cut to pieces with all his lrnnp, but
for the sensonaulo assistance oi uenerni
Clinch. It is true he published a bulletin
in which ha claimed to have defeate'd the
Indians and tu have brought the war to a
close, and had even the modest assurance
to accept a dinner at Tallahassu in honor
of his victory !
lie is now. or was at tlio last accounts,
at Nnchitoches. on Red River, about forty
miles from the Mexican frontier, wiih one
regiment of the regular army, some five
hundred stiong, and with express orders,
as he himsclfsays, to preserve our neutral
ity from violation, nt all hazards, "pcacca-

Now ono would imagine mat llie nrst
step towards preserving our neutrality.
would bo lo put a slop to ino pasinge oi
armed men from the United Slates into
Texas, with tho intention of assisting the
insurgents. There is tho Hon. Jolin Q.
Quitman, with his troop of forty men, lato
ly set out from Natchez; there is the Hon.
Felix Houston, about to follow with anoth
cr company : there arc rccrinii collecting
at Louisville, Mobile, New Orleans and in
divers other places, with the open, known
nnd expressed tnleiilion of marching l the
mil of the Texians. This, Gen. Gaines
seems to consider no breach of neutrality;
and wc hear of no measures taken by turn
to ntnp ihem. But the General has learned
thai one Manuel I; lores is intriguing with
the Caddo Indians, and otl'cr tribes near
tho Red River, ond is holding out induce
ments lo Ihem to cm.grato to I exas ana
put themselves under tho protection and
pay of the Mexican government. This in
formation has convinced him that our neu
trality is in the utmost danger; and without
wailing to communicate witn vne war uc
narltnent. for having once begun to oc
upon his own responsibility, he teems de
termined to Keep it up,--ne nas ent on i
requisition In the tiovernor ot Ijouisiana
for a brigade of mounted men. to assist
him in his intended operations.
There is a clause in our treaty with
Mexico, by which it is provided that both
govcrnmcntsshall prevent the Indians with
in their respective limits from making hot
tile incursiont into the territory of the olh
cr. This provision Gen. domes quotes in
his letter to the Governor of Louisiana; but
if tho Mexican government hove rcaMy in
tilled the Indians into Texas, that is a case
with which tne above ouutcd provision ha
r.othins ot all to do. II is just as il we
should invito a parly of the Texas Indian
to assist us in our war with thcSemmnles
would that be within the treaty? and would
the Mexicans be bound by that treaty to
prevent the Tcxian Indiana from accepting
mi. Invitfttinn ?
However, Gen. Games in his great anx
ielv to preserve our neutrality, and to fulfil
all our treat ystiptilat ions, talks of marching
into Texas ;--that is invading the territory
of our ally with an armed force, and com-
ncllin? such of the Indians as may have
joined the Mexican forces to return to their
homes! It realty io ue nopcu, lur (tic
sake of consistency, that he will take Gen.
Houston scamp in his way and bring home,
along will) the Indians, the volunteers who
compose something like four-fifths of Hous
ton's force !
Instead of preserving an impartial neu
trality, as he pretends, one would imagine
from the conduct of ucn. Games that he
had been seat to the Mexican frontier for
the very purpose of picking n quarrel.
Texian agents and commissioners ara al
lowed to range the country from ono end
lo the other, to hold public meetings in all
our cities, collect contributions, and enttst
recruits. It is a notorious tact, that ol the
troops who have 'lccn.and now arc in arms
in favor ol llie Texian insurrection, llirrc-
four I lis are volunteers from the United
States. While all this enlistment and vol
unteering is going on, the government look
cn in silence, and if they .do pot favor it,
Ihey certainly On nntliing to prevent it.
Hut when ono Manncl Flnres goes among
the Caddo Indians to enlist recruits for the
Mexican amy, Gen. Gaines tokes the alarm
t once, and calls loudly for mililiato ai-sisl
lino in preserving our i-iidniigered neutral
ity ! Il is even said that he has sent n
special messenger lo hsnln Anna camp
to innmrc if llm said Manuel acts by his
authority. We shall sec what answer the
Mexican returns to thi-i insolent mersae,
Wr considered tho country io great dan
ger oft war befort; hut since Gen. Games
has arrived on the frontier, with full pow
ers and special orders to cause our neutral
ity to be impartially preserved, we look
upon a war with Mexico as quite inevita
ble. Since writing the above, the following
confirmatory paragraph has met our eye in
the Globe of Wednesday :
The information from Tcxaa is calcula
ted to excite aprchensions (hat the forces
ol the United States on the frontiers may
be involved in thn contest. General Gaines
states tint his orders from the President
require him 'lo remain entirely neutral, and
to cause that neutrality la be respected.
But if. to effect this object he deems it a
duty lo oppose the employment of ihe In
dians within our fiontiers, and has marched
to the Sabine, to arrest tho progress of the
Indians in that quarter, there is great like
lyhood that a war in our western border
haabcen already commenced, the cloto of
which, cannot dp certainty uivincu.
Faom Florida. At length we have
heard frnm Major Gen Scott's command
in Florida. He wa, at thn date of des
patches which have been received from
him, at Tampa Bay, with the whole force
under his command, amounting, now that
all the detachments arc united, to between
five aed six thousand men. There had
been no regular battle with the Indians.
The General met wiih them on tho Wylh
lacoochce, and had skirmishes with them
(supposed to be the same body as attacked
Gen. Gaines) for several days, without
being able to bring them tn battle. They
were followed and charged upon repeat
edly in the hammocks; but the nature of
the ground is such (being all deep marsh
except the hammocks, or clumps and thick
ets ot trees and undcrgrowib) that it was
impossible to prevent their escape. Some
lndias,n however, were killed, nnu a lew
of the troops were killed ond wounded
The General was about again to lako the

places where Ihe Indians might be expect

The merchant overheard the remark,
and immediately wrote to the father of the
young man, to come and lako him home ;
"for," said ho, "he wilt neuer make a mer

Tub buhied alive. A gentleman from
Vermont related lo us a lew days since, a
case of remarkable preservation which has
not vet been published.
In tho town of Washington, Vt. about
the last of February, Mr. Peter Woodman,
accompanied bv another man, commenced
making a path under the edge nf a hill,
where Ihe Miow was very deep. They had
progressed a considerable distance in I hi1
path, when a son of Mr. W. a young Ud,
entered Ihe palh with a yoke nf oxen. The
father saw his son approaching linn afier
giving his attention tu his work fur awhile,
lie looked back again the path was filled
with a slide of snow, and neither oxen nor
bnv weie visible. With peedy and anx
ions labor, Ihey opened the place where
ihey were last seen, but nothing was tu be
found. The distressed father now about
hastening away to obtain the assistance of
his neighbours, saw, some rods from the
palh, a motion for a moment in the snow
l'hey commenced digging and snon found
the head uf one of the oxen. Life was ex
tinct in both Ihe nxen ; it was probably
the last convulsive throe that indicated on
the outer surface where they were. The
boy was found with his legs across ihe neck
of one of tho oxen, exhibiting scarcely any
signs ol lite, it waa not long betore he
began to revive, and waa received by his
iovl'til parent as from Ihe jaws cf death
lie wrs probably uurieu in the snow twenty
or thirty minutes. I'ortsmouth Jour.
