.He- desribed California.as.one thousand

greater patt of the-country between the
Sierta Nevada and the Rocky moun

be most valuable far. the purposes of

He.belieyed this tract to be etually
rich in. gold with the West of the sierra
Nevada, wheie they were now diggi-uyg;
nay he bel it-ve-gold would be found and
worked- with. equal success -east of the
Rocky -Moun tin's. - Thirtv thousaid

By die last-. accounts it appeared that1
they had discovered gold near. the- lake,
still- lhors ablindant than Aspon- the banks
of the Sacramento, at adistance of from
fdr hdndred to eight hindred miles ip
:1:at rit-r. . He -elietved that the thrde
mountain ltains 'of.th Sidrra Nevada,
the ltodky Mountains and the Alleglia

The fire originated, no.doubt, by friction

duced into. pol'iical. sticuce, should also
be the first -to carry the docrine of Free

the wake of English Iegislation, and erase
the.law we had copied .as soon as British
legisiators had found it convenient to gpt
rid ofthe laws which they. so Jong and so
jealqusly .mainai'ned. As the British Par.

the .work of abulishing tkiese laws, we
hope that thie American governmaent will
yet be able to take the initiative and lead,
as she bad heretofore so.ofien led, 'in the
career of progress and the amelioration of

its happiness and well being, we rejnee
superlatively when our own country men
are the agents in effecting ends so desira

by the news tbat Mr. Labotcher's bill has

TuE VALU1E or LAND iN FREE AiI7
SL.vIC Sr E:s.-In our. last nnmber we
made some -rectsarlis tnpoti Mr. Clay's as
ertion that the landholder of Kentuicky
would be remujnerated for tito emancipa.
6on of-his slaves .in the increased value of
us lands, in - hich we showed that it) ihe
neighborhood of the Ohio River, Kentcky
ltids ate three and a half tines-as valna
be, as lands equially as favorably situael
and well. improved on the Indiana side;
and also that Kentueky lands are murh
mirre valuable. than -the lands of Ohio, tie
mohdel State of the- emanacipators;
We have since conversed witlr a higily
respectable far'ier. of -Jefferson county,
a Pennsylvanian by birth, who informed
as that a sale .ofa well -improved tract of
anid; near Uica Indiana, (five miles abwe
Louisville, and two miles fromn the Ohio.)
was made not long since at twenty del
lars per acre. - An etitrally well improved
ad.situated tract, cannot be purchased on
the Kettneky bide of the River, for less
than from forty dollars to seventy-dlollars
The same genticinan has lately been
spending some time in Ohtio, andl assures
us that the value of .good lands in Ken
tacky..is from -ten. dollars to fifteen dollars
above' those-of Ohio, location, improve
menti. &c., being equal.
.The farmer who gave us these facts, is,
as we Slave before stated, a Pennsylvzanianl
by birth,- and-is .by no.niensthat may
be termed an extreme man on the subject
of slavery. He informed us of what he
kunisi io be-fatt, and leaves to others to
dae their own deductions fronm them.
