Dear Sir,-I am in the receipt ot your

of the distitiguished body over which you
presided, of the part I performed tovards
the conaumation of this great measure,
with sincere pleasure and gratitude.
rebas it-is one of the most
memorable .*vents of our history ; and I
am proud to have my nanie associated
with it. One of the most striking circumn
stances is the unanimity and enthbusiasm
with which the people of Texas returned
into our great andi glorious Union, in spite
of every obstacle thrown in their way,
. nd every seduction presented to influs
enee their decision. in speaks a volume
in favor of their intelligence and patriot

est eulogy ever pronounced in favor of
our free, popular intstitutionis; and will he

I avail myself of the occasion to tetnder
to you n y cocngratulaitionls at the high

me, a gratifying coincideunce, that an old

it was consumated.

- President of the Convention.
- Professor Thzornwell.-lt appears cow
to be rendered almost certain that South
Caroltina will loose one of her itost dis
tingnished sons, in the person of the Rev.
J. g.Thornwell. Professor of the Evi
dences of Chrirstianity in our College. It
will be remembered that during the last
summer a unaaimoutts call wxas given him
bythe Second Presbyteriani Churcht of
Baltimore (formerly uatider the (charge of
the Rev. R. J. Breckinridg~e) to accep~t of
thispastoral eharge of that Church. In
c onformity with the usages of the 'resby
-teriani Chuirch, in view of this call, a mecet
ing of the Presbytery of Charleston, to
which ecclesialtical organization Prof. T.
belongs, assembled in thi'i place last even
ihgto take the 'matter into consideration.
At thlis mnfeeting a request from several in
fluential cliizens of Charlestun for Mr.
T's services in that city wvas presented,
-hut after some discussion, and consulting.
-Mr. Thornwell's impressions as to his
sense of duty, the Presbytery, we learn,
yielded to the raquiest of the Church in
.altimnore, and released him from his
present ecclesialtical connection. Mr.
T'hornwell, however, being a member -of
she-Faculty of the South Carolina~ Col
-oge will also have to obtain a release from
be Tr~atees: of that Institution. This
will d bt, be gratnted, however un
wvilliog thEy may be to part frotm him,
when it is understood that he desires it.

character of his native State. He is de

of our country. Much as we, personally
regret its loss, we think we discover a field
of extensive usefulness and fame before
him, in the prominent position he will oc

HBON. P. M..BUTL ER
This gentleman. whom many of us whe
served as volunteers in the Florida Cam
paign of '36, will ever remember with ad
itiration as one of its most distinguisbed
and gallant officers, and at. a subsequeni
period, as.the popular and efficient G-v
ernor of our.State, has recently returned
to the bosom of his family and friends in
this place. Col. Butler, as is doubtless
known to most of our readers, has been
for some time acting as the United State!
Agent among the Cherokees, and perhapi
other tribesorindians west of 'the Missis
sippi. in which capacity he performed the
most arduous, important, and responsible
services, with the most entire acceptance
to the Government, aid to the Iudian
themselves. We- leatn that the Depart
ment at Washington expressed the mos
unqualified approbation of Col Butler'
administration, and that the Itdiani
themselves unanimously petitioned that
he might be re-appointed-and yet, thit
gentleman has been 'superseded to make
% ay for some Presidential pet, or school.

An A dvertisintg Firm.-T he Worces.
Cr .Egntis states that Messrs. Hardin,
Hunt & Co., a firm doing an extensive
business in that ttwn, during the pasl
year paid about one thousand dollars for
advertiing- their goods, and are satitied
tat by this outlay, they have received a
rich harvest in retturn.
We have no doubt of it. There nevet
yet was as instance where advertising wa!
liberally resorted to, that did not result tc
the advantage of the advertiser. Some
folks appear to think that because the~
cannot see the money expended for thiu
purpose actually running back into theiu
pockets, it is like. givinig it away. We
pity such rarrow mitded views These
people should krnow that the secret of ad
vertisinig consists in letting the public
know your whereabouts, what you have
to sell or wish to buy, &c. Of course
this will not make that public patronize
you. but it will draw their attention to
wards your establishment, end if they call
as most probably they will, some of them
at least, and find you accommodating and
your goods desirable. they will, in nine
cases out of ten, make purchases ; where
as if you had not advertised, these same
people would not have known that there
was such a person as yourself in the wvorld
Titne was when the antediluvian notiot
that advertising was not beneficial had
some apology in it, but times have changes
and-hle who now expects to mount the
ladder .of prosperity anid independence
must change with them or be content tc
remain at the bot tom.- The surest wa~
in this world to get rich is to'advertise.
The "turn out'' by the female opera
tives in the Pittsburg factories for the tot
hour system, lies- led to violent outbreaki
on the part of? some of the girls. A por:
tion of thboss who had struck returned te
their work on Moniday morning,~anc) thiu
gave great dissatisfactieo. to a number ei
te agitators, who have been counaeancc

speeches from' several men. Thelg deter
mined it appears, to prevent the peaceably
disposed from working, and secceeded in
doing so. The factories of Mr. Black
stock and Moorehend were entered' forci
bly, and the hands driven out. 'On Mon.
day evening a meeting of the-operatives
and their friends was held, at-which ies
olutions were passed in fav.r ofdstanding
out, and calling upon the citizes'o sup
port the girls during the"stri e.The
Pittsbu.'g Gazette: says-.
The consequence, we presue, wl be,
that the Factories will renisin closed 'for
the present, aud probably all the -winter.
This must produce great want and -mis
ery..and have a most disastrous effec
upon the.welfare of.the city.
The N. 0. Courier of the-,27th uh
says:-We learn that the PostlMaster of
this place has received from the Philadel
phia Mint, -three casks of cents. We
learn also that !he Mint in this city has
struck f- thirty thousand dollars in dimes
and half dimes, by order of the Secretary
of the Treasury, for the special uses of
our.Post Office and those in the neighbor
The Postmaster here will supply the
country officeo with cents, dimes and hall
dimes to any reasonable amount.'
The object of the Government is to
drive all light foreign coins from circula
tion. The Spanish quarter;.dollars, for
instance, seldom weigh morethan th
value of 23 cents, and many of them do
not exceed the value of 20 cents.'
The Post Master has instructed his
Clerka to receive no foreign coin of less
denomination than a five frank piece.
The extensive circulation of dimes and
halfdimes will be a great cnvenience
and advantage to the public. -

to his aid, and with a stone succeeded as
they thiottght in killing the dog. He re
coved, however, and ran six miles before
he was finally despatched, biting severan
dogs, hogs, &c. on his way. From wha'
has been heard, it is thought that the dog

and in some instances, after filling theis
