The Galveston News, of the 16th, has an
account of the excitement at Austin in rela
tion to the arrest of the parties implicated in
the heavy frauds iu the Adjutant General's of
fice, of which we had intelligence on the arri
val of the ateaimhii) Louisiana. The News
learn that Blatikeoship and Lewi, the per
son implicated, are ia custody in Anstin,
awaiting trial. . No Austin pier have come
to hind by this arrival, and coDtu-queotly the
above is ail the information we have on the
puhject. The New n informed that Gen.
Cliambers' charter for a company to operate
liU terraqueous machine, wa granted by the
yisl:iture, but that the hind bonus afked for
was wiUih&ld.
The greatest snow etorm that ever occurred
at Oawejro, New York, npon Lake Ontario, a
region anions for sach storms, occurred on
Friday the 11 inst The railroads stopped
running, the window shatters of the stores
were not taken down, the newspapers were
not published for three days. The streets in
many parts of the city were impassable, the
now ranging fiom four to ten and twenty feet
deep. Many of the residences were banked
np with snow to the second story. Snow now
lies to a depth on a level of from six to eight
feet in the woods. s
By a census just completed, it appears the
population of St. Louis is 122,252. Of these
119,05 nre white, 8,080 black, and 1,539
slaves. 5tf,769 are males, 'and 55,868 are fe
males. The increase of population since 1850
baa been about 30,000. The number of man
ufacturing establishments is 601, and the capi
tal invented therein amounts to $6,558,700.
Totrtl number of houses 14,311.
It is said that Mr. Buchanan is very desirous
of availing himself of the present opportunity
to visit I'aris and Home neither of which
cities be lias ever been. He will, after the ar
rival of hi successor, Mr. Dallas, spend two
months on the continent before returning
bonm. Therefore, he will not return to t tie
Uuited States long lefore the time fixed fur
the Convention at Cincinnati.
The St. Louis Intelligencer, of the 8th inst.,
aayj: Plum Point Bend, familiarly known
among steamboat men as the Devil s Bone
Yard, is And always baa been the worst point
on the whole river for navigation. At all sea
sons of the year, wheu boata approach it, they
do so with caution. It, is always tilled with
uags and sand-bars, and a larger nnmber of
boats have stink J here than at any other "i:it
on the river. The water is lower there than
at any other point, and the channel is said to
be narrow and crooked, besides being (illed np
with the wrecks of more than a dozt-u eteam
liouts that, have sunk there during the past ten
years. Jat now PJnm Point Bend U a place
of interest, more particularly on account of
there being no less than fourteen boats aground
there, and none of them likely to yet off until
the river rises.
The Fayettevillo (N. C ) OWrter, of the
14th' intL, announces the oiseovery of a seam
oi" exceedingly rich bituminous coal on Deep
river, a branch of the Cape Fear. The vein is
four und a half feet thick, and of beautiful
ijtiality, and lies about four hundred feet below
tbe surface of the earth. The company to
which the Mines belong have extensive build
ings and machinery ready to be put up, and
expect to be prepared to ship 300 tons per day
in less than two months from this date, if
means of transportation are afforded. Iu the
mean time efforts are making to raie money
to build a railroad from Fayetteville to the '
mines, a distance of not over forty-two miles,
and proposals are issued for a loan of $100,000
on the bonds of the town of Fayetteville. The
coal region contains about 300 Failure, milts.
The development of this c.ih) !ej o ite, which

The N. O. Cresrent of the 11th inst., gives
the report ot the commissioners of the Mc
Donough estate, with accompanying docu
ments. From it we learn the whole valuation
i.f property to be $2,272,406 05. The receipts
for lhoo are set down at $107,826 13; thuex-
p'-nditures ut $32,128 5t). The rent roll is
$01,010 33. The rent notes and leases on
hand of property leased for a longer period
than one year, and falling due annually to
I860, amount to $66,957. Litigation concern
ing the estate is not yet entirely ended. There
are four actions now pending, the parties cou
cerned ail claiming various legacies and sums
which, in the aggregate, seriously ulTect the
value of the property.
The St. Louis Republican learns that the

The Amrrieao Plalferm.
An erroneous edition of the American
Platform, adopted on the 21st inst., by the
National Council, has, (we learn by spe
cial despatch from Philadelphia,) been pub
lished. It would be well for OHr brethren
of the American press to avoid publishing
any but the certified official copy. There
appears to be a general disposition on the
part of the enemies of the American Party
to falsify all the proceedings of the Na
tional Council.
Impobtixt Resolutions I5kfoi:e the Sfissis
hpji Legi?mtci:e. lion P. B. Starke, so well
known throughout the South, and now a mem
ber of the Mississippi State Senate, a few days
since in session, called np his resola' ions touch
ing the President ial election of 1856. These
resolutions declare, that if neither of the Na
tional Conventions soon to assemble do not
nominate Presidential candidates, sound on
the slavery question, that it is proper for the
people of the State, irrespective of party, to
meet in primary assemblies and send delegates
to a State Convention to nominate an electoral
ticket, pledged to vote for men who recognize
the constitutional rights of the South. They
also invite other Southern States to unite in a
similar movement.
A day was fixed for their consideration.
Gxs. Tierce's "Handwriting." Among
some old State papers about the New Hamp
shire State Capitol'the original draft of the
following resolutions, in the handwriting of
Gen. Pierce, have been discovered. They were
reported by the Democratic Representative
from Hillsborough, the native town of Gen.
Pierce, and passed the Democratic Legislature
of 1847 unanimously:
Jiwhed by the ft nate and IToum of Eepre
Mhtatitet in General Avembly Convened, That
we regard the institution of slavery as a mor
al, social, and political evil, and, as such, we
deeply regret its existence, and are willing to
concur iu all reasonable and const itutioual
measures that may tend to its removal.
rutolrcd, That all territory which may here
after be added or acquired by the United States,
where slavery does not exist at the time of
such addition or ncqiiremenf, neither slavery
nor involuntary servitude, except for the pun
ishment of crime, whereof the party has been
duly convicted, 'ought ever to exist, but the
Same should ever remain free; and we are op
posed to the extension of slavery over any
such territory, and that we also approve of
the vote of our Senators and Representatives
in Congress in favor of the Wilinot Proviso.
lienolcel, That our Senators in Congress be
instructed, and our Representatives be reques
ted, by all expedient and constitutional means
and measures, to sustain the principles herein
set forth. Mi 6K8 Xoukh, Jn.

Bisnnp Piehce at the Nohtu. A Metho
dist congregation of Newark, N. J., have erec
ted a splendid church edifice which is to be
dedicated on the 4th Sabbath in February.
The Rtv. Bishops James and Simpson, of the
Methodist Church North, and Pierce, of Geor
gia, are to officiate. The Sparta Georgian says:
"So anxious were they to secure the services
of the latter gentleman that, after failing to
effect it by several epistles, the church sent
out the Rev. Mr. Cox, their pator, with in
structions to remain with the Bishop until los
consent was obtained. This be gave rehic
tantly, as we nnders and, entirely npon the
principle of biinging about a better feeling, if
possible, between the two great branches of
the church. The movement wc regard as an
important one, and pregnant with good re
sults, materially as well as ecclesiastically.
That the same people who, in effect, deposed
a Bishop for his connection with slavery
twelve years ago, should now send hundred of
miles to get another Bishop, equally implica
ted with the other to perform an act of holy
consecration for them, looks very like a relent
ing for the past, and that a conservative Fpirit
yet lingers among the laity of the North, de
spite the acts of their Conferences, or their
representatives in Congress."
Correrpoiidt-nct of the N. Y. Ilcrald
Dinner to the lion. Henry fuller.
Wn.KK-nAKitE, Feb. 19, 1850.
Tha friends and neighbors of the lion. Hen
ry M. Fuller gave him a public dinner yester
day, which was participated in by whigs.
Americarts and democrats. Mr. Fuller being q
called out, made a speech of some length, vin
dicating the course of himself and fruends du
ring the struggle for Speakership, and arguing
that his position on the slavery question was
sound, national aud conservative. He depre
cated the agitation on the question, in and out
of Congress, as calculated to inflame the public
sectional divisions. He de-ired that the men
of the North and the men of the South should
live aud act as brethren. He also showed that
the Hon. Chester Butler, former whig repre
sentative from this district, advocated in Con
gress the doctrine that States should be admit
ted, recognizing or excluding slavery, as the
people might determine. He thought the peo
ple of the Territories should be kit to act, un
molested, for themselves, and that attempts to
coerce their action were improper, and to be
discountenanced. His remarks were received
with manifestations of much pleasure, eliciting
great applause. He returns to Washington
with an assurance of good will aud the up
ort of all who have met him on this visit.

IV hat Becomes ! the MlTer?
Since the discovery of gold In California,
the amount of silver coin in circulation has
steadily decreased, and more than oDe ingeni
ous theory been broached " to aecbflnt for
its disappearance from, ita accustomed chan
nels. Among. tbesjm that offered ly the Phila
delphia American is the most satisfactory.
That paper-La dug up, from. the British. Par
liamentary statistics, the amount of silver ship
pedato the East Indies and China from Great
Britain; and froji ita figures we learn that the
enorinons snm of $31,000,000 took that direc
tion in 1852, and that during the last 5 years,
over 90,0U0,000 of silver have been swallow;
ed up by the demands of the China and Asiat
ic trade, in addition to the enormous amounts
that have been required for the same trade
which is carried on tbe Atlantic pirtain the
Uuited States. Xat. Intel.
"We pay silver and little else for the teas,
India silka, npices, indigo, kc, that we bring
from abroad; and, inasmuch as the supply of
tbe metal does not increase in proportion to
the increase of the Eastern trade, the demand
grows every succeeding year more and more
brisk,' and the amount in circulation less 'and
less. We do not see w hen or where this drain
is to be stopped. The Chinese' and Hindoos
demand little that England or America can
spare. Their civilization, their habits, ens
toms, wants, sre widely different from ours.
Our fabrics, whether of cotton or wool, are of
little value to people who prefer nakedness to
the most sumptuous apparel. Onr breadstuff,
and salted Krk are not highly esteemed by
men to wliora a dab of boiled rice is a dinner,
and to whom poik is an abomination. Oar
steam engines and locomotives, telegraphs and
reapers, our labor-saving machinery of all
kinds, which conduce so much to the pros
perity and happiness of the Western world,
are powerless in breaking down the caste sys
tem of the Eastern world, that is older than
our civilization. A long as we continue to
indulge in the decoction that is now the daily
comfort of the oorest, as well as the valued
luxury of the rich; as long as we will stimu
late our palates, and impair the national diges
tion with ppiccs that the East only can fur
nish; and as long as our wives and daughters
will wear silks, which, for brilliancyof dye,
shame the birds of the most brilliant plumage,
there is no escar we must pay! The Chi
nese, wiser than the English, will have noth
ing to do with our bonds. In the "Flowery
Land," the most skillful negotiator would fail
to wring a dollar from the incredulous Manda
rins. They demand the silver, aud to them it
goes."
Got. Jokks and Internal Impbotimekts. A
writer in yesterd.ij's Appeal renders uo more than
justice to the influence which Gov. Jones' services
in the cause of Internal Improvements have exert
ed in Tennessee. He was one of the piuneers who
Grsl let in tbe light upon the Popular Mind, in this
regard, as the stalwart backwoodsman lets iu the
light upon the bosom of mother earth. In both
cases, tliere ia an immensity of work to be done,
before the genial sun has lair play for its fructify
ing energies. What a world of primeval forest
in ancient aud hereditary habitudes, in deep set
prejudices, in tangled incredulities and scepticisms,
in miry selfishness must the Thinker belt, and
grub, and cut in pieces, and bridge over, before the
seeds of Progress can bring forth their increase!
And a weary and toilsome work it ia in ita very
nature a nUitary and a cheerless drudgery. By
and by there come others, vigorous and hardy set
tlers and co-workers, and presently there is a good
ly eompanv, and the earth tughs with tbe growing
corn, and the air is jocund with the sound of human
voices. The daikness is passed, and the light of
mind has revealed a new creation. WTe rejoice
therein, and wonder how we could have rested con
tent with the old order of things.
Among those who have thus blazed out the way
for the Railroads whieh are now beginning to shed
such bleseings upon our Slate and people, and
which will confer them hereafter to an extent we of
the present day do not even inmgiue, Gov. Jones is
undoubtedly entitled to hold a conspicuous place.
He has the hiph honor of converting into a practical
reality, the Idea put forth a quarter of a century
ago by one of the first minds of his age, of a Rail
road from Memphis to Charleston. Upon his shoul
ders fell the mantle of Edmund Pendleton Gaines,
and it is glory enough to say that he wore it intelli
gently aud worthily. It is the firmest foundation
stone of his enduring renown; for when, in the mu
table fortunes of the politician amidst the shifting
prejudices, the changing likes and dislikes of politi
cal party that period of his life is passed in re
view, malice itself will be constrained to admit, he
was in this a public benefactor.
Who, among all our public men, will thus render
his name immortal, by making good his title to be
regarded by after generations as tbe Founder snd
Father of the Railroad mom the M ssissirn to
the PACiricT MemplU Bulletin.
Sadolixo the Wrong Horse. We have
rarely seen a stronger predilection for the "eo
hesive power," or a greater attachment for
party to the .sacrifice of the interests of the
country, than was exhibited during ihe late
contest for Speaker of the House of Repre
sentatives. And now that the result has ter
minated as we at first feared it would termi
nate, in the election of a freesoiler, we find the
democratic press of tbe South railing against
the American party in Congress for permitting
that to bo done, which the democrats them
selves, if they those, could have prevented.
The last Georgia Citizen makes out the case as
clear as noon-day, in the following paragraph.
We say, then, let the responsibility rest where
it belongs.
From a list of the final vote before u, we
perceive that Hickman, Packer and Barclay,
three Democrat from Pennsylvania, did not
vote for Aiken. Also, that Grain, of North
Carolina, Taj lor of Louisiana, Richardson of
Illinois, and James L. Srtrard of Georgia, all
Democrats, did not record their votes at nil in
favor of Aiken. Here, then, nre peven Dem
ocrats whose votes for Aiken would have elect
ed him by a majority of four, allowing tbe K.
N. vote of the six Fuller men to stand as it
d'd. The query arises why were not these
seven Democrats in their places, and why did
they not vote for Aiken ?
Now let these partisan editors who are so
keen in detecting the errors of their oppoueuts,
account for the movements of these men, or,
before they again bring a charge agaiust the
Americans, see to it that their own eyes are
not clogixed with political motes. Columbus

Texas Western Bailroad. .'
The Galveston Xewt of the 16th inst., gives
the annexed iaorrnationia relation to tbeprb
gress of the Texas Western Railroad, contin
uation of the Vicksburg, Shrgveport and Texas
Eiaroadr '' i p s 'jy
" Col. Wm. P. Hill Informs as'that the railroad
spirit in Lis (the eastern) part of the State, is
now very active, that it has passed from mere
words to works, and that one hundred and
forty hands are now employed on the Texas
Western Railroad, or what is perhaps better
known as the Vicksburg and 1 Paso Railroad.
These hands are now at work grading the sec
tion from Marshall to the State boundary line,
a distance of twenty miles. This section is ex
pect ed to be completed ready for iron, duriug
the ensuing summer. Most of the hands have
been furnished by stockholders to work out
the amount of their subscription, or' at least a
portion, of it. The nnmber of bands is increas
ing almost daily, and Mr. Brown, aueut for the
contractors, is supplied with an abundance of
all the necessary i-oplements on the ot, to
gether with some labor-saving machines for
grading, which, in that light soil, are found to
work very successfully. The contractors ap
pear to be prepared with ample means to pros
ecute the work without interruption or delay.
The Vicksburg and Shreveport Company are
also prosecuting their road nnder the mot fa
vorable auspices. These two,roads are to con
nect at the State line, and are, therefore, mu
tually dependent npon each other. The Vicks
burg company have engaged to complete the
section of their road between Shreveport and
the State line, (also about twenty miles) by
the time the Texas Company, shall have com
pleted their section from Marshall to the same
line, su that the whole road from Shreveport
to Marshall may be in operation at once and
at tbe earliest period. .When the grading is
completed, the iron will be shipped to Shreve-.
port, and by completing that end of the road
first, the iron and other materials can be car
ried on the road itself, to the points where
they are wanted. We may now therefore say,
that there are tour railroads iu progress, in
this State, terminating respectively at Harris
burg, Houston, Galveston and Shreveport, the
first of which is iu successful operation &s fur
as Richmond.
Irish iTIifrration.
Some curious bat earnest attempts seem to be
making to induce a wholesale migration of a portion
of the Irish population either to Canada or to one
of the distant territories of the Uuion. The move
ment was first made at Toronto, Canada, where a
meeting was held with the purpose of inducing the
Irish Catholic population to emigrate to Canada.-
The meeting was noisy, riotous, and divided in sen
timent, and finally broke up without effecting the
purpose for which it was called, owing to the inter
ference of opponents of the migration. Subsequent
Iv another meeting of Irish Protestants was held at
Toronto. According to the report of the Toronto
Colonist, several thousand persons participated in
this demonstration, and the greatest unanimity pre
vailed. The preamble to the resolutions adopted as
serts that the Irish Catholic citizens of the United
States are principally those who were the disturbers
of their nutive country, and not satisfied with the
mildness and liberty of the British Constitution, for
feited their right to the designation of British sub
jects by emigrating to a foreign State, and that their
turbuluucy and intertncddliug, their active subser
viency and blind obedience to their priesthood,
have rendered them obnoxious to their fellow re
publicans. Alter these very serious charges, the
resolutions proceed to deprecate and disapprove in
the strongest manner of the coutemplated wholesale
transmission of Irish Catholics to Canada.
These resolutions were adopted with great ap
plause. Their spirit shows that even if the exodus
should be towards Canada, the emigrants would
find no n ore favorable condition of things there
than tl.e one they complain of in the United States.
There can be but little doubt that the English,
Scotch and Irish Protectants in Canada are less
tolerant to the Irish Catholics than the Protestants
of the United States.
The next feature of the movement has been the
assembling of an Irish Conventiou at BufT.tlo, New
York, on Wednesday, to concert a general scheme
of migration either to Canada or one of the West
em States. Much preparation was made for this
Conventiou, aud delegates were appointed from
different parts of Canada as well as the United
States. Some of the Roman Catholic clergy have
taken a prominent part in the preliminary meetings.
At a meeting held in Brantford, Cana ia, Rev. Mr.
Ryou stated that the Convention was originally
proposed by the Very Rev. Dean Kirwan, and ex
pressed a hope that the Catholic clergy would give
their influence iu favor of the work.
"lie also suggested that the delegates should be
reminded of the necessity of impressing on the mem
bers of the Conventiou that the colonization should
be made sure and permanent that a given number
of iuteuding settlers should be accompanied with a
clergyman and a schoolmaster that they should
possess means to enable them to erect a church and
a schoolhouse iu a central locality, lemarking that
it would be a strong inducement to intending set
tlers, and be a means of drawing off the surplus
population of our countrymen from the railroads,
tbe canals, the over crowded cities and towns,
where, too often, they are tempted to commit ex
cesses, when their religion and their country arc
aasailed, which colonization would have the effect
of removing. "
At a meeting at Hamilton, C. W., Rev. Mr. Cara
gon advised that information should be obtained as
to the most suitable tri.ct of country, and that soci
eties should be formed throughout North America,
every member of which should contiibute a speci
fied sum for a certain number of years, to purchase
said territory, and assist indigent settlers. A meet
ing of the Irish adopted citizens of Columbus, (U.,)
approved of the ot ject in view, but were of opinion
that the Catholics of Ohio would never remove be
yond the limits of the United States. The idea
seems to be, to establish an independent communi
ty, beyond the reach of Protestant influences, and
where their religion will be respected. A meeting
of the Irish residents of Buffalo was held on Tbure
cay evening List, aod resolutions passed highly
condemnatory of the movement. .fiar. A hut.
Romance and Reautt. The Sandusky Reg
ister narrates the following affecting story:
''In the Lunatic-Asylum at Columbus is a
pair of insane lovers. Mental anxiety of a pe
dlar character is supposed to have derai ged
the intellect of the young man, who waa sent
to the asylum some time ago, cured, it was
hoped, permanently, and sent home. While
at home be fell deeply in love with a young
girl, who returned his devotion, aud they be
came tenderly attached toeenh other; but un
happily, the malady returned non the young
man; tie was separated from the object of his
love, and sent back to the Asylum. Left to
herself to mus upon her bereavement, and the
sad destiny of her lover, the mind ot tbe girl
became also affected almost, as it might seem,
from sympathy; and it waa not long before
she, too, was immured within the walls which
sheltered him. They are both there now.
Occasionally they seem to have recovered their
reason, and are permitted to hold interviews
with one another. In one of these, the poor
girl tagged her lover to marry her, but be re
plied, with a melancholy, real enough to bring
tears from the listeners : 'You know that we
canuot be married, Ellen ; we are unfit for
that happiuess poor, unfortunate creatures
that we are."'
