Martinique.-The account of the loss of

According to an official account, it is said
that the persons killed amount to 250.
Observing aa anecdote in a late num
ber of your paper, of one of our summer
emigrating gentry to a fashionable water
ing place, reminds me of one that occur
red at Saratoga, some years since, when
it was so much the resoi t of Southern vis
itors. A South Carolinian, from the
assumption of consequence, caused an en
quiry of his servant, how many negroes
his mastei had? He answered, " Me, and
Fatimore," (the name of the other negro.)
".Ah ! You and forty more !-He is rich."
This established the Gentleman's right
of importance, and the greatest atten
tion was paid him, until a neighbor
arrived, who barely recognized him: this
appeared strange to the company, who
were paying coutt to him. Another en
quiry was made of the new comer, and
when the matter was explained, a precip
itate retreat was made.
An election was held in the Town of
Hamburg. S. C. for an Intendant and six

Ma. EDrIo.- have told you that I
had won a victory of eigh teen years war.
What signifies the conquest of war unless
the Generai koows how to reap the bene
fit or his victory? What signifies the build
ing of a town if the builder does not know
how to enjoy the results of his success? I
have told you that I have accomplished
great designs and others were fattening
upon the fruits of them, and that an over
hauling might be indispensable. Many
years experience has given me full proof
that I can plan and execute great works
but not enjoy the benefits of them myself,
because while I am planning and execu
ting with both body anti mindezealously, I
cannot guard myselfagainst the ingenuity
of others from dispossessing me of the same
when accomplished. The world will have
it. that were I to live fifty more years, the
course of my pursuits would be tho same
the world will find itself mistaken.
The first rule of nature tells us that we
must labor for our existence and be useful
to mankind. I feel satisfied that I have
done my part, and believe the same is ac
knowledged by the world. I shall now
begin to sell off and square off.
I am now wanted to help to build a
Turnpike from Hamburg to the mountains.
I deem that enterprize a practicable one,
and the importance it would give to Ham
burg cannot be told, yet I decline enjoy
ing the honor conferred on me as one of
the Commissioners. I may, however, do
one thing. Intending to visit Europe next
spring, I might bring a number of my
coontrymen as laborers to serve in that en
terprise. The object of that visit is in
part to put in operation that direct trade
between this country and Europe which
seems so-natural, for we have the same
seas and use the same ships as those o: the
North. For that pturpose several conven
tions were held in the Union, among them
two or three held in. Augusta, at which
many speeches were made, fine dinners
eaten, anti the silver cup given to William
Dearing, but nothing more has been done
to my knowledge: I suppose the golden
cup is very properly reserved for me. I
presume it will not be denied that South
Carolina was the first State and I the firat
man that brought this great enterprize to
the view of the Southern people; for on the
19th day of December, 1835, the Legisla
ture granted me an act of incorporation to
carry on this important object. anti here
are tne words; "Be it enacted by the Senate
and House of Representatives now met in
general assembly, and by the authority
of the same, that Henry Shultz, Charles
Lamar, and Edward Delius. in behalf of
themselves, and such others as now or
hereafter may be associated with them, for
the purpose of establishing a direct trade,
between the town of Hamburg in South
Carolina, and the Kingdoms of Prussia,
Sweden, Denmark, Holland, and thefree
republic of Hamburg, Germany, by the
way of Charleston, S. C. are hereby con
stituted a body corporate.. and politic, by
the name and title of "the American and
German Trading and Insurance Compa
ny," with a capital of five hundred thou
sand dollars each," and this enterprise
was followed up by Mir. Dearing, and oth
ers, which brought about the first Conven
tion, which was held in Augusta, 17th
October 1837, after the lapse of two years,
from the time I received my charter, for

South- Westrn Rail Road Bank Bill.
The following paragraph. from thc Lex
ington Observer, of the .5th inst. revives
once more some small hope -of the final
success of this measute:
"The Legislatur.-We regret to state
that the bill to confer Bankitng potw era up.
on the Charleston, Louisville andI Citncin

Kentucky Legislature, by a vote of ayee
48, noes 52-every member present.
Since the vote was taken o Tuesday, we
learn that t wo gentlemen who voted against
the bill, have received instructions from
their constitutents to vote for it. an~d we
presume the question will again come u
upon a reconsideration next week, when
wve are not wvithbout a hope of its passage.
The bill was defeated upon its third read
ing, and a letter fronm Frankrort to the
Louisville Journal states that -it is knowtn
that at least three members voted for the
third reading of the bill who woutld have
voted against it upon its final passage.'
The question of its passage we are never
theless still inclined to regard as at leaus
Judging by what we can learn of the
tenor of the constitution made by the con
vention which lately met at St. Josephs,
the people of Florida are abuout as friendly
to Banks as their Red waet are to the
Whites. Look at what they have put in
to-the constitution under which they are
to be governed in future. To pass or altet
