to the nomination bv the" Liberty Party National
Convention at Buffalo, of JAMES G. BI RNEY,

AliH S ITEMS,
Late trom Hayti. The fast sailing brig Wil
liam Neilson, Capt. Robinson, arrived here yes
terday from Port an Prince after a short passage
of nine days. The country was tranquil, as will
be seen by our correspondent's letter. The mar
kets were well supplied with American produce.
The U. S. Frigate Potomac had touched off the
port. The French fleet consisted of the Nereide
frigate, Geni and Papillon brigs, and the steamer
Styx. The latter sailed on the 12ih instant from
him the power from the Haytien Government to
recognize them as a free and independent State.
He only remained at St. Domingo 24 hours, and
returned on board the French steamer Styx.
Remarkable Incident. A young girl, about
12 or 14 years of uge, daughter of Mr. Fsber, in
Fourth street, above Master," for near two years
had been unable to walk and to speak. During
the time of the riots, the dwelling of her father, in
Cadwaller street, was destroyed by fire, and the
family, with the greatest precipitation and fright,
took refuge in the woods, in the suburbs of the
country. This g'nl was among those helped to
this retreat, her case exciting the strongest sympa
thies of those who knew the circumstances of her
condition. Her alarm on the occasion was of the
most excruciating character, but what is the sin
gular feature of the whole affair is the fact that
she has recovered her speech und her powers to
walk, and is now in possession of her natural fac
ulties. There is but little doubt in the minds of
those conversant with the circumstances, that to
the fright occasioned by the destruction of her
home and the precipitate flight made by the fami
ly, may be attributed her wonderful restoration.'
Free trade triads are spreading over the surface
of the entire country, charging for transportation
of letters one fourth the amount charged by Gov
ernment, and the result will ho that the revenue
will fall off to a greater amount than if the reduced
rates of postage had been passed, and finally ap
plication must be made to Congress to make up
the deficiency. It is useless for the Government
to bring suits against the free tiade mail agents,
because, after the decision of Judie Stnrv and
Judge Sprague.'it is impossible to conviet them of
any violation of the law. The Constitution gives
Congress the power to 'establish post offices and
post roads,' and under this clause to transport the
mails, but the Constitution does not prohibit any
one from doing the same thing it is not by any
construction a monopoly given to Congress, con
sequently it is open to the enterprise of any indi
vidual. Weekly Sun.

The Mormon Schism. We copy the following
from the Alton Telegraph of last Saturday week :
In our paper of the 18th ult. we briefly noticed
a report, which had reached from various quar
ters, that an open rupture had taken place between
Joseph Smith and some of the most intelligent of
his former adherents; and that the latter had ac
tually renounced their allegiance to the prophet,
ami set up for themselves. Later accounts indi-
ate that these seceders are in earnest. 1 hey

The Liberty Star,
A Parody By Joshua M. Dana,
Tune American Star.
Come strike now for Liberty! Tyrants are railing,
They seek to enslnve us, and make us their prey,

While Liberty mourns, and flies weeping away.

In view of the shackles and chains they must

Arouse in your might, fear no threat'.iingor toil;
No more should the Freeman with doublings be

Shall mothers, wives, daughter and sisters, now

Rejoicing to see us contending as one.
Come, come, Freemen, up with your new ban
The oppressed sons of Liberty call from afar;
Three millions invite us, in servitude sighing,
To conquer the foe of the Liberty Star.
Come, join us brave friends, and around Liberty's
United we'll swear by the truth or the grave,
Not one from this strong resolution shall falter,
For truth, being mighty, is able to save.
Shall the minions of slavery ever affright us,
With threats of dis-union, or menace of war?
No, never! all Nature is crying before us,

Resignation. Senator McDuflie, it is said, has
resigned his seat in the Senate, not on account of
ill health, hut it rumor is to be credited, to go into
the South Carolina Legislature, to carry through
a law to tax all northern manufactures brought into
South Carolina. We are sorry to have so much
time and good talent thrown away on such eutopi
an projects. McDuflie's reply to Benton's speech
against annexation, points out the Senate as the
proper sphere of action. The tax that South Car
olina will get on northern manufactures will scarce
ly pay the consequent loss on South Carolina cot
ton. When the game of cross purposes is to be
played, it requires two clever players.

TIT FOR TAT.
The Green Mountain Freeman has once con
fessed that Mr. Clay has repented of his duels and
voted for the law of Congress to punish duelling
as a crimp; still it insists that Henry Clay is a du
elist. We rotort this: J. G. Birney was a slave
holder lie did, indeed, repent of it, and his
repentance produced good fruit, just like Mr. Clay
on duelling; lint, according to the logic ot the
Freeman, J. G. Birney is a slaoehduer. Vt.
So far from acknowledging that Mr. Clay has
repented of his duels which took pi ice 16 years a
go, as the Watchman would make us believe he
had, we contended that there was evidence he had
not repented of his ducling''mri the fact that he
accepted n challenge from Mr .'Xing only about
three years ago, iince the law against duelling was
made, for which he is now under bonds of $5000.
He also declared at that time, March 1841, that he
" was ready at all times promptly to repair an in
jury, as I hope I ever shall be to repel an indigni
ty." And yet the Watchman says that "the
Freeman has acknowledged that Mr. Cluy has re
pented of his duels." We should be surprised at
this, if the Watchman was not so much in the hab
it of uttering senseless falsehoods.

The island is perfectly tranquil once more, un-,
less some few disorders which were committed at
Aux Cayes, may be considered an exception.
There, the soldiers, who were exasperated at not
receiving their pay, as they had been led to hope
they would on a certain Sunday, but in which they
were disappointed, owing to the non arrival of
funds from the Capital, had pillaged some shops,
but not to any great extent. It is confidently ex
pected, however, that all would be umiciibly ar
ranged in a very short time.

Lynch, residing in 13th street, below Shippcn,
which resulted in the death of his daughter, Cath

pears that the brother of the girl is or is about to
become a member of a volunteer company, and
on Monday evening he brought homo a musket
Irom the armory for the purpose of cleansing it,
preparatory to the fourth of July parade. The
piece was lying on the table ns the family were
going to dinner the next day, when the young man
took hold ot it and commenced examining the cock
when it exploded. This was the first intimation
he had hail that it was charged, as it had laid in

being known to any one, and when the family re

The shells were fired from an eight inch sea
