f the 9th inst. contains the followiogextract
m a letter received in that city, dated Fort
ashita, A. T., 7th January.
"The Seminole Chief, Wild Cat, came up
ere on a hunting excursion witli-about 30of
his party. He expressed himself dissatisfied
ith the manner he and his tribe has been trea
ted by the Government He said that they
were promised good land, but that he had not
.yet found that goed land. He looked like a
demon when speaking, of his wrongs, and
boasted of his attrocities and the blood he had
ahed in Florida."
Loss -y Fire.-The Savannah Georgian of
the 12th inst., states, that on the night of the
6th inst., a fire broke out on the estate of Col
James Dunwoody, in McIntosh Co. Georgia,
'which 'destroyed a large three story barn, 50 by
-40 feet, which contained the balance of this,
and a part oflast year's crop of Rice, provisions
for plantation use. &c., the entire eto. k of seed
Rice, with one of Darkens' improved thrashers.
The conflagration was so great, that every ex
ertion to save the Sugar Mill of Mr. James
.Smith, which was in the vicinity of the barn,
proved unavailing, and that establishment,
.consisting of a Mill for grinding Cane, and all
the apparatus for making Sugar were destroy
ed. The loss bythe burning of the mill and
-contents is estimated at $4,000.
Beware of Counterfeits.-In our last we pub.
lished a paragraph from the Charleston Patriot,
relative to counterfeit Ten Dollar notes of the
planters' and Mechanics' Bank of South Caro.
lina, being in circulation in that city. We find
from the Columbia Chronicle or the 13th inst.
that they have also made their appearance in
that vicinity; the editor of the Chronicle, who
examined one of the notes, state, that "It ii
well calculated to deceive the unwary, differing
only from the genuine bill in color. and a cer
tain stiffness in tho signatures. The counter.
feit is much paler, and the heads on each side
of the vignette are rather more indistinct than
those of the genuine. We think it evident that
the counterfeit is a lithograph of the genuine."
Since the above was tn type, we have re.
ceived the Charleston Courier of the 14th inst.
which contains the following paragraph, re a
tive to the circulation of the above notes:
-'From a letter shewn us yesterday, we learn
that an individual, calling himself Stone, de
sired that a bill of this description should be
changed at a-store at Chester Cour t House, on
Saturday last, which was acceded to, and
change given, but the proprietor of the store,
(hiving read the paragraph, and noticing that
the bill answered the description given of the
counterfeit) called Stone back, and inquired if
he had more money of the same description,
which he denied. A search of his person was
demanded, and refused. when Stone made a
vigorous attempt to elude the personal exami
nation. The hue and cry was raised-the
crowd followed and the culprit caught, and on
inspection, it was discovered that air. Stone had
a plentiful supply of ammunition in the shape
ofseveral rolls of counterfeit money, the de
nomination of which is not mentioned in the
letter communicating the information. The
individual was committed for trial."
The N. Y. Journal of Commerce, says: "A
lithographic counterfeit of a five on the Ameri
can Exchange Batik of that city, so exactly
resembles the original that it can with difficul
ty be detected."
Mr. Calhoux.-The Joumnals of both parties
appear to be well pleased writh the appointment
of this able statesman to the office of Secretary
of State. For ourself, we must acknowledge,
we were much astonished at the time we re
eived the news, (although rumor had prece
ded it,) that President Tyler had been so fortu
nate as to make such a aelection; as, in our
humble opinion. Mr. Calhoun is the only per
son, calculated to make the last part ol this ad
ministration oh great and lasting benefit to the
sountry. Should he accelet the appointment,
which we hope he may, he will set all things
strait, and eable the President, by his valuable
advice, to settle the Texas and Oregon qtues
tions, to the satisfaction or the citizens of the
Umnted States, and all others cozncerned.
Annexed we give the opinions of the press
of all parties,(so far as we have received them,)
relative to the appointment:
The South-Carolinian says: "The nom
ination has taken every one by surprise,
yet the press seemns as unanimous itn favor
of it, as the Senate ; and we sincerely hope
Mr. Calhoun may decide to accept it; for
if he does so, desirdus as he is for retire
ment, and without any perceivable per
sonal motive to desire the office, it can only
be with a strong, disinterested, self-sacri
ficing hope of being of service to the coun
try, in the settlement of the great ques
tions at issue. Elevated as is his character
and fame, the office can add nothing to
either, and the remaining portion of the
term is too short to enable him to effect
anything in it of the Government reform so
desirable to himself & his political friends.
The negotiations to be opened with Great
Britain, are beset with too many serious
difficulties, and involve too much of per
sonal responsibility, to reader the manage
meet of them desiralple to any one. This,
however, will not deter Mr. Calhoun from
undertakinj; them, if he believes he can be
of service ; and if he does undertake them,
the very act itself, evidently free from any
sel6sh motive, combined with his great ex
perience and wisdom, and thorough under
etanding of the questions at issue, will at
once give to the country great hope of suc
cess. May the Almighty Disposer of
Events. in whom he h~as ever trusted, and
'who has ever strengthened and sustained
him in doubt or difficulty, guide and direct
him now, both as to the appointment itself,
and its great duties, if he acceptisit."
The Charleston Mercury says: "The
Dews of Mr. Calhoun's appointment is re
ceived every where with lively approba
tion. Political friends and opponents
agree that a better could not be made.
There is a general and deep conviction that
the country at this time calls for pre-emi
jnent ability, firmness, experience and in
teerity, in the direction of the State De
partment. and the universal approva( of
Mr. Calhoun's appointment idi such a cr1
s, is a tribute to his wisdom and charac
ter, much as has been bestowed on few
statesmen. Believing that he can do sub
staptialseryice to the country, we hope he
will acept the appointment. We believe
t, ;,isth ..ne.al ...:s of s. friends. her
that he should do so. We have not heard
an opinion against-it." .

possible for any communication from him

that the appointment -will be accepted-by
"Tha there are many and great difficul
ties with-foreign nations, no one can doubt.
1f:Mr. Calhoun believes that his agency is
necessary toladjust them, and' hopes that
they can be adjusted by him, we believe he
will accept the office-for such a time, at
least,, as shall be necessary to test his abil
ity to settle them. But, if on the contrary,
that either they are not of any pressing
emergency, or that his services are not ne
cessary for their right adjuatment, he will
not leave his retirement. The position
itself at this time of life, with the distin-'
guished stations he' has already occupied,
can give no honor; and nothing but a stern
sense gf public duty will induce him to
assume it The Oregon question we can
not believe to be capable of any settlement
by treaty ; and, therefore, neither honor nor
usefulness will probably accompany any
efforts for this purpose. The feeling of the
West, as developed in Congress, will have
the whole of that Territory or none., and
of-course there is no room for treaty, which
always implies conflicting rights. To sat-'
isfy those chiefly interested-the West
we do not deem possible, unless Great
Britain will surrender all her pretensions ;
of course, therefore, any treaty 'concluded
concerning Oregon, will, with the West,
damn any statesman who makes it. We
think our title pretty clear, thatn accord
ing to European notions of the right of
civilized nations to take possession of more
barbarous nations and. appropriate them,
men and territory, to their special benefit.
Admitting that because a nation is civil
ized and christianized, it has a right to
send a ship or a dozen men, and claim an
empire inhabited by weaker and more bar
barous nations, not only against these na
tions, but also against all other civilized
nations-why, we have a capital title.
"We shall be very glad if Mr. Calhoun,
or any body else, can adjust this question
to our entire satisfaction,. But we are a
land-bitten people, and we fear we love
excitement, perhaps war, more than-peace.

The Globe remarks upon the unusual

The New York Herald of the 5th, be
fore the nomination was known, says;
"We believe Mr. Webster might be able
to settle peaceably the Oregon gue~tion,
so as to satisfy the east; but whether he
could settle it or the Texas question on
terms to satisfy the south and west, we
are disposed to doubt. In this aspect of
te case, it is probable that Mr. Calhoun
woa~ dgive more satisfaction to the con

other mDet that could be namned. And,
looking ahnwck . selection in 'every point
