to a Convention to be held .at St. Louis to
take steps to separate, the Methodist

A week from Land to Land.-The reap
id passages of steam ships are equivalenst
in a degree to the annihilation of so munch
of the ocean itself. The Bunker Hill Au
rora notes the following remarkable inci-.
dents of the voyage of the Britannia: .
"The Britannia left Liverpool on Weds
nesday, Sept. 4th, and lost sight of land,
off Cape Clear, on Friday following; and
on the next Friday, Captain Hewitt made
the coast of Newfoundland-thou having
made the run from land to land, across the
Atlantic in one week."

will hold, and wash the hands with it, al
lowing it dry without wiping. If repeated
a few times, the snrls will entirely disap
pear, and never return."
To Female Aliens-T here is a very
prevalent error extent that the naturaliza
tion of a father naturalizes the children
under age. Nothing can naturalize a per
son born abroad excepting complying in
person with laws, and taking the necessary
oaths of intention and allegiance. Many
female chil Iren and widows, as well as
'nles,- have lost the inheritance of their
parents by this error. .Females as well as
males mast be naturalized before they can
bold real estate, and we wold advise all
who wish to secure property to take' the
the necessary steps at once.-Neto York

Cotton.-Our. market has been dull since

was a considerable quantity of Cotton arrived,
nearly all of which was taken up at our former

will continue low, intil we have advices from

was 6 cents, and that for a prime article. Prin

Our river, which during the last three weeks,
had again become very low, rose yesterday about
three inches, and from the. appearance of the

and which -ill beat this time a great advantage.
Bagging.-The demand for this article thro'
the past week was but limited, owing to the
absence of the planters' trade, which was but
light since our last, which will be seen by our

Cotton.-Our market has exhibited mote

steady demand has prevailed throughout, which
has been frealy met by holders. The low state
of our river,.however, continues to some ex

general aspect as at the close of last week. A
