The bounday line of Texas is tlie great sub
ject bow oecupyiag the attention of the eoun-
try. The peace and harmony of the Union
art deeply involved in its satisfactory settle
ment The claim of Texas upon ihe" territo
ry of New Mexico, though perhaps oot wlto
guthef without show of reason, can not be
maintained by that State without at once pro
v.king serious collision, not only with the
J-wal government of New Mexico, but with the
" United States. The necessity of quieting
tJ.ese claims, and removing nil occasion for fu
ture difficulty, has been generally acknowl
taged at Washington, and several measures
. have been suggested in order to accomplish
, this end. It has been proposed to refer the
termination of the real boundary to the su
preme court, and again refer it to scientific
board of commissioners, but either of these
steps would involve delay, and most unhappi
ly, if not dangerously, prolong the existing agi
tiaia of the country. Direct legislative action
ha. been recommended by the President, and
ha met the most decided approbation of at
1 tst one branch of Congress. The extent of
t rotary ia dispute is so large that neither
party in interest could be prevailed npon, ev
en by any pecuniary indemnity, to concede in
j io to the other, and consequently the only
expedient has been to divide and give a por
tion to each. . Different lines have been attack
ed and defended with great spirit and vigor.
Co give our readers a clear view of the geo-
.... jjraphical features of the controversy, we have
r eat pleasure in presenting them to-day. with

found in the main quite accurate, though there

Texas claims from the month to the head
y atars of the Rio Grande, and thence north to
. north latitude 42 degrees, where the line cor-
tiers with Oregon and JJeseret New Mexico
Claims, with about as little reason apparently,
. XiOwn as fir sonth Humbodlt's line, designated
on the map. . The line near El Paso laid down
n the map as the "line of the new Constitu
tion," is more probably, her real southern
: bounuary than any other.
i' Thedividing line, as proposed bv Mr. Cby's
Compromise bill, commenced at .1 Paso and
run twenty miles dirgcily north, then proceeded
t tiia;onally in a nrijl-westerly direction to the
south western sngleof the Indian terrritory.
, Xtis line, it' will be perceived,, cut of ait im
portant portion of Mew Mexico and abruptly
severed aome of the rivers of Texas ; and at
iie south-western extremity,' r.ot perfectly
represented on the map, it took a small trian-
; tie, compristna orazito. and two or three otn
.ther small settlement from New Mexico and
attached them to Texas. The bill of Senator
Pearce, which has just passed the Senate,
; Starts the lioe of Texas -on the north at the
point at which the nurredian of 100 deg. ts in
tersected by tha parallel of 38 deg. 30 mio,
end runs due west to the merediah of 103 deg.
2? west, thence due south to the 32d deg. of
uarth latitude, thence along this parallel to the
-io urande, and down the channel ot thenv
- r to ija'mcxith. "By adopting this line, four
-or five thousand square miles are saved to
Sew Mexico; the valleys -anti waters ot the
Upper Puerto are reserved, and the 'small
' setUements above El Paso are-retained, which
jmosld. have been surrendered to. Texas by M
Clay's proposition. "At ther north and west,
Texas acquires much more territory by this
bill, than by the compromise; bat the whole
: rerioti is wild and. barren, and will never serve
say other purpose than as a' bunting ground
for the Indians. Texas surrenders to New
Mexico 124,000 square miles of her now jUrm-
ed territory, and New Mexico surrenders to
Texas 70,000 square miles of the territory she
claims. 1 be cession from iexas includes all
Nw Mexico east of - the Kio del Norte from
twenty-five miles above El Pasco to the head
of the river, comprising some twenty or thirty
towns and villages and seventy thousand New
Ui-xicari people, who now admit ni allegiance
to iexas. Mr. Benton proposed to mane me
raered'.an of 102 the western boundary of lex
as, beginning at the. Del Norte just below the
mouth of the Puerco, and about 300 miles in
s straight line below El Paso.- An amendment
to this effect was defeated in the Senate by a
great majority. - A Urge section of the south
ern members in both Houses are strongly, and
come, perhaps, uncompromisingly, in favor of
the extension of the Missouri line of 36 SO
- through New Mexico and California to the Pa
cific, regarding it as the only admissible line

Astounding Disclosure The Madison
Jtobbery.&e. Under the above head
ing, the Louisville Courier of Wednesday pub
Iisie the following statement:
"Among the victims of the cholera on Mon
day night last, was . a convict in the Indiana
penitentiary, at Jeffersonviile, named Boot
He was sentenced to the penitentiary for six
years, under a charge of having robbed the
bank at Madison, la, of some $28,000, his
sentence woald have expired next month.
Our readers will recollect that this robbery

was cast upon some men occupying high pla
ces. iThe money was never found, and to this
day, as has been ascertained memoranda kept
by the bank not a dollar of the stolen notes has :
. ever been put in circulation. !
Root was a man of bad character, and as
ha was at Madison at the time of the robbery,
he was pursued, arrested and on trial was con
victed of the crime, although nothing positvely
was proven against him, and notwithstanding
he almost porveJ positively an a'ihi.
Oa his death bed Monday night, he freely
confessed to a number of forgeries and crimes,
and implicated as being connected with him
in hia forgery transactions, m person 4a i at
present a resident of tnix city, and who u now

tar!! He, however, most earnesly and sol
emnly denied having ever had anything to-do
with the MJion bank robbery, or of know
ing anything about it, eiiher directly or indi
rectly. As we have already said, he freely
acknowledged to many other crimes, but with
a full knowledge lb at death would soon claim
him as a victim, he asseverated to tiie last
that he was suffering for a crime of which he
was entirely innocent The confessions were
made to bis physician, Dr. W. F. Cullum, and
from all the attending circumstances his state
ments are believed to be true. .

Maclmain, April 11, 1850.
Mr victor dear Children I have painful
news to till you news that I am sure will
make your young hearts ache; but 1 hope
your heavenly Father will help you to bear it
Your dear papa is very, very ill indeed ; so
much so that the best judges fear that he will
never be any better. He began to fail about
five months ago, and has declined so gradualy
that we were not fully aware of his danger
until lately, but within a few weeks those who
love In in have become very much alarmed.
In January we went down to Mergui by the
steamer, and we returned thougut he was a
little better, but he soon failed again. We
spent a month at Amherst, but he received
little if any benefit.
Next.the doctors pronounced our house (the
one you used to live in) unhealthy, and we
moved to another. But all was of no use.
Your papa continued to fail, till suddenly, one
evening, his muscular strength gave way, and
he was prostrated on the bed, unable to help
himself. This occurred about two weeks ago.
The doctor now became alarmed, and said tin
only hope for him was a long voyage. It was
very hard to think of such a thing in his redu
ced state, particularly as I out I not go with
him ; but after we had wept and prayed over
it one day and night, we concluded that it was
our duty to use the only means which God
had left us, however painful.
;We immediately engaged his passage on
board a French barque bound for the island of
Bourbon; but before it sailed he had become
so very low that no one thought it right for
him to go alone. They theiefore called a
meeting of the mission and appointed Mr. Ran
ney. It was a great relief to me, for he is a
very kind man, and loves your dear papa very
much; and he will do every thing that can be
done for his comfort The officers of the ves
sel too, seemed greatly interested for him, as
did every one else. He waB carried on board
a week ago yesterday, in a litter, and placed
on a nice cot made purposely for him. I star
ed with him all dav, and at dark came home to
stay with the children.
The next day 1 found that the ship had mlv
dropped down a little distance, and so I took
a boat and followed. I expected this certainly
would be the last day with him, but it was
not On Friday I went again, and though he
did not appear as on the previous days, 1 was
forced to take as I then supposed, a final leave
of him. But when morning came, I felt as
though I could not live through the day with
out knowing how he was. So I took a boat
again, and reached the vessel about 2 o'clock
P. M. He could only speak in whispers, but
seemed very glad that 1 came. The natives
I bad sent to fan him till he should get oat of
the river, came to me and begged to have him
taken on shore again ; and so small was mv
hope of his recovery that my heart pleaded
on their sioe, though I still thought it a duty
to do as the doctor had said, I came'away at
dark, and though his lips moved to say some
wind of farewel, they made no sound.
! I hope that you, dear boys, will never have
cause to know what a Iieavy heart I bore
back t ny desolate home that night The
ljaeaael got out to sea about 4 o'cl x-k on Monday,
and last night the natives returned, bringing a
letter from Mr. Kanney.
Your precious papa has revived again
spoke alound took a little tea and toast said
there was something animating in the touch ot
the sea breeze, and directed Mr. Kanney ti
write to me that he had a stong belief that it
was the will of God to restore him again to
health. I feel somewhat encouraged, but dare
not hope too much.
And now, my dear boys, it will be three
perhaps four long months beftire we can hear
from our loved one again, and we shall all he
err anxious. All we can do is to commit
hi m to the care of our heavenly Father and
if we never see him again in this world, pray
that we may be prepared to meet him in hea
ven. Your most affectionate mother,

were selected by those in the interest of the

We arrived here this morning at 9 o'clock,
after a passage of 32 days from New York,
vhieh was rather long, owing to unfavorable
winds we had.
On our arrival hers we found an English
barque at anchor; she is a store ship, having
brought stores and oo;l out for the squadron,
which by the way, sailed from here yesterday,
consisting of two barques of 300 tons each,
carrying sixty men, and steamers of about 100
tons each, with from forty to fifty men ; they
are all bound in siarch of Sir John Franklin.
The baique sails in a week for England, which
will gvee us all a fine chance to write, the
only one I am afraid we shall have for some
time to rome. We have been very f.irtunete
in sending letters thus far. for I boarded a ves
sel off Newfoundland .bound into St. Johns,
about the 1st of this month. We have all
sent letters by her. They were from St
Johns, by steamer to Halifax, and from there
to the United States.
After leavinar N. Y, we kept company with
the Roseoe, by keeping under short sail until
the 19th ult- when, finding it impossible for
her to keep up, we made sail and lost sight of
her in a few hours. The days,afler we left New
York, tjraduillv trrcw hmtrer until the 16th of
this month, (in lat 60 50 a.) when we could
really say we had constant day, so much so,
that we were able to steer without lighting
the binnacle lamp, a thing 1 never saw before
but now we have sun shine the whole 24
hours; we hav'nt got use to it yet, and hardly
know when turning in time comes. You have
no idea how stranse it appears to come on

and 6uch tarot bergs, that we had to keep
strict natch to steer clear of them; however,
we manasred successfully, and came into the
harbor of Whnlefish Island, with a fine breeze,
and anchored at 2 o'clock. I expected to find
something of a town, and when we came in I
asked where it was, and was shown two shan
ties and half a dozen Esquimaux mud huts.
In one of the shanties the governor lives; he
is a Dane, sent ont by the government, as a
kind of missionary, &c. ; he came on board this
afternoon. - ,
The Esquimaux are nsrly and grensy. Men,
women and children; all dress alike, in Seal
skins. Their dress is a short jumper, with a
hood for- cap, pnntalonns coming down to
the calves of their leg. with boots to meet : nil

very nice and warm : the only objection to

that we sail to-morrow. At Lniely we found
rather more of a town than at these islands.
About 14 Danes live there, 100 Esquimaux.
We wer treated with the greatest kindness
by the inspector nt Lmelv, who is kind of a
ffovernor-sreneral of all these islands.

succeeded in wetting; about $50 worth or ahout
12 suits. I have a fin ront made of yntinir

otoetcmrrs of the same, and large boots made ot
Esquimaux dogskin. My chances for keeping
warm are pretiy good.

spertor. Mr. Olriek, is going home to Denmark
to remain this snmmer, and when we came
away he ffve us every pair of pantaloons he
had of sealskin, except th" pair he had on, and
most of his coats, saying he could get more
when he retnred.
We expect to go to a place called Upper-
mnrik. about two hundred miles from here;
from there we go to Mellville Bay, thence
across Lan-as!er Sfun !. to Cape Walker;
from there we shall try to get up to Mellville
Island, and as much farther as we ran. We
"expect to winter at Mellville Isle ; but that of

good luck to fall in with a whaler bound either

Fbllow-Citizbns We are assembled here
for the purpose of paying the last sad tribute
of respect to our friend and neighbor. -
It is exceedingly fit and proper upon this
occasion, briefly to call to mind the character
and virtnes of our deceased friend : .
He was a native of the state of Massachu
setts a lineal descendant of the Old Puritan
Stock, a race of people celebrated through the
world for their iutelligt nee, enterprise, and
great energy of character. Inheriting; many
of their eterliny; qualities of mind Mr. Dickin
son was first known in the west as a young
man, in the year 1821, at Columbus, Ohis as
a School muster and Law Stu lent. ' Having
completed his studies at that place, lie located
at Fort Ball, in Seneca county, in 1824, and
was Ihe first Prosecuting Attorney, of that
county, and the first Attorney at Law that
settled within its limits. He came to this
place to reside in 1825 or 1828, and contin
ued his residence here till his death.
Foremost is every public enterprise, we are
much indebted to him for our public improve
ments, nnd his liberal aid in contributing to
the Settlement, improvement and development
of the resources of the country. Th first
Memher of Congress from this county, he died
at Washington, in the discharge of that pub
His most prominent traits of character, were,
great foresight and sagacity ; and this uniform
good sensp and sound judgment he applied to
every subject that arose in the practical af
fairs of life. These marked traits in the char
acter of his mind, made him successful in ev
err thing he undertook-
He wa-t the kind husband and father and
the neighbor and friend of us all. Stricken
down in the prime of life, in the midst of. his
usefulness to his family and kindred, and to
us as a community, his loss is great indeed.
Let us then, here, over his grave, resolve to
cherish his memory, emulate his virtues, for
give and forget his faults. And in conclusion,
remember, that as our deceased friend has
gone to thp tomb, so we, must all in quick
succession, follow him.

same order to the Episcopal Church, where a
funeral discourse was preached by Rev. H. P.
Powers, from the 1st Epistle of John, iii cbnp

The "Booby" Candidate.
Let all those who heard Judge Johnston at
Oberlin, remember that he is the man whom
the locofocog have sought in their characteris
tic style of blackguard, to prejudice the peo
ple against, by representing him as a great
"booby," and applying sundry other approbri-
ous epithets to injure him.
Let it be remembered too, that the Lorain
Argus not only published those contemptible
articles from the Statesman and Plain Dealer,
but put forth the following qaaint proposition
fir the consideration of the voters of Lorain:
Remember there is two candidates. The
one the people's candidate, the well known
'old Chief of Cuyahoga' the Hon. Reuben
Wood, the other 'booby Johnston, known in

The question for you to decide is whether
you will vote for Rueben Wood or "Booby
Johnston, alias Wm. Johnston."
We yvere uhtd to see Mr. Vincent, the Ar
gus Editor, present at the meeting, and, we
shall now see whether he will dare repeat this
fish-market slang about "Booby Johnston,"
since the people have heard him. Such pusil
lanimous nltacks might pass unnoticed once,
but will now only overwhelm their author in
confusion and shame, Those puny efforts by
the locofocos, to sneer down a citizen, because
he once labored for a living, comports very
well with the general character of their lead

Mr Dear Sir T most respeetfiilly tender
to you my resin-nation of the Department of the
Interior, to which you did me the honor of enll-
:ng me. This determination has not been
reached without the most serious nnd anxious
deliberation. . - i -
A cociousness of my peculiar temperament,
which too readily responds to causes -f excite
ment and depression, would have - prompted
me in the first place to decline the offer, but
the kind manner of the appointment, accompa
nied by the good wishes of the Cabinet and
hacked by the pressing urgencies of friends,
made so strong an impression on me as to
leave no alternative but an acceptance.
A brief experience of the arduous labors
and onerous responsibilities, however, in con
nection with considerations of a private and
domestic nature which press with great force,
have brought me to the conclusion that a due
regard for the interest of. my family and mv
self, require my withdrawal. In thus dissolv
ing my brief official association' with you, per
mit me to say that I cherish a confident reli
ance upon the patriotism, capability and Worth
of every member of the administration, nnd a
hopeful assurance of its success.
- To this end, no effort of mine in 'my retire
ment fhall at any time be wanting.

appreciation of the kindness extended to me
by you and your o3i--ii! associntes?

Mr. Loudon, a prominent democrat from

said : : - . ,
-.-i.;will say here in - my place what-1 have
before intimated, that I am ashamed of tlie
conduct of this convention. We have been
here sixty days, and we have 3TN0T YET
SETTLED THE FIRST PRINCIPLE for

made a book, which may be read of some
thousand pages, when the indexes and titles

Mr. Loudon was followed by Mr. Leadbet

I would like to say a Word in relation to
what the convention has done ; I am unwill
ing that it should go out from the mouth of
as good a d.'inoerat as the gentleman from

been in session, sixty days -ntiJ do le .nothing.
There has never come "under my observation
any deliberative body that evinced a better
working spirit than this convention, nnd if we
have not accomplished as much as we might
have done, it has been because of 3TTHE
CONFLICT OF OPINION; for we have
been in session hours enough to have done a
great deal of work."

had done nothing, I meant only to say that

g We are sorry that Senator C. N. Olds
has felt it his duty to resign his seat in the
senate. No one was more beloved, was more
respected, or whose absence will be more re
gretted by all parties. A gentleman in the
highest and best acceptance of the term, his
place will be difficult to fill.
Resignation of Hon. C. N. Olds. By a
communication from this gentleman in another
column in will be seen that he has forwarded
to the government his resignation as a senator
in the Ohio legislature.
We regret that illness in the family of Mr.
Olds has compelled him to take this course.
During the recent stormy proceedings of the
legislature, Mr. Olds rendered efficient service
and proved a reliable advocate of law and or
der. Had he been permitted to have taken his
seat in the senate, th ensuing winter, we
would doubtless have found him discharging
failhfullv his duties and Wking with an eye
sinole to the interests of his constituents, and
the state o-enerallv. We trust the health ofi
his family may be fully reinstated and he be
prepared to enter upon the duties of either
private or public life, as occasion may demand.

Superlatively Ridiculous. - -
The most superlatively ridiculous thing late
ly witnessed in these parts, is the action of the
Directors of the Junction Rail-road company,
in making Toledo a point in their road, when
their charter only extends to Fremont!
Again, by the express letter of their charter,
Fremont is not only made a point but the ter
minus of their road I Notwithstand all this,
the arrogant Junction Directors have refused
to make Fremont a point, except upon certain
conditions! This, however, is only of a piece
with their hot hast in pretending to let con
tracts from Elyria to Sandusky, before their
estimates and surveys are made.orat least com
pleted, clearly and evidently witti me view i
frighten us from pushing on onr road. They
understand full well the superior feasibility of
our route over theirs, and the imminent dan
ger in which they are placed, which sufficient
ly explains and accounts for the desperaiiota
of our Sandusky neighbors. If the lake shore
route is really so much more feasible than ours,
as some of its friends so boasfully pretend,
why such precipitation? Why not complete
their surveys and estimates, and exhibit
them to the public ? For the very best reas
on in the world, they would look shockingly
bad in contrast with ours. We are reliably
informed, upon the very best evidence now to
be attained, that the lake shore road will cost
at least $200,000 more than ours 1
