The cotton trade keeps steady, and pri
ces this week have hardened, indeed in
some instances, there is a slight advance
on American descriptions. The sales for
the week amount to 28,180 bales, of which
there was sold the following American des
criptions : 2.320 bales N. O. at 3 to 3 3-4d
0,140 bales Upland at 3 1-8 to 3 l-4d.i
3,080 bales Mobile and Alabama at 3 to
3 l-4d.; and 020 boles Sea Island at 7 to
11 l-2d. per lb. The market, yesterday
evening closed with steadiness, and on re
ferring to our price current to-day, it will
bo observed that we moke liltlefer no change
in our quotations of last week. The com-
mittce of cotton brokers have declared
the following to bo (he quotations for fair
cotton, viz: Upland 3 l-8d; Mobile, 3 7-8d;
New Oilcans, 4 l-8d per pound.
The market for cured provisions hascen
firm since our previous notice. Pork has
been freely taken, and bacon has advanced
2. to 3s. per cwt. Lard is in fair request.
and although lower in the early part of
last week, has since recovered. Cheese is
in less active demand. During the week
the imports comprise 138 boxes of bacon;
132 bbls. and 80 kegs of lard; 123 casks
of butter; and 1,048 boxes of cheese.
The itnporls of foreign grain and grains
produce, in Liverpool, London and other
leading ports in the United Kingdom, ate
increasing; and this, combined with a pret
ty fair quantity of home grown, keeps mnr-
kets on the whole well supplied. In the ab
sence of speculation, the trade exhibits a
total want of animation buyers only pur
chase for the supply of immediate or pres
sing wants. At Mark Lane, on Monday
last, wheat sold at 51 to 57s for red, and 55
to 60s per quarter for best English while.
Indian corn brought 37 to 38s per quarter
for red and while. The sale of American
flour was dull, but the prices quoted varied
from 28 to 32s per bbl. for United States
brands, and 27 to 30s per bbl. for Canadian.
The market was rather dull, and in some
instances the price of English wheat rece
ded ono penny per 70 lbs. The following
rates were paid for American descriptions
of wheat; Canadian, free, red, 7s 6d to 7s
8d per bushel; white 7s 10 to 8s 2d; U. S.
red at 7s 10 to 8s Id; white 8s 2d to 8s 4d.
Both United Stales and Canadian flour had
dull sale, but prices were maintained
the former being quoted at 30s to 31s, and
Canadian sweet at 28s Gd to 29s Cd per

Vienna has at length surrendered to the
Imperial troops after an eight days seige.
Until the 28th ull., six days were consumed
in endeavoring to bring iho Viennese into
submission, during which time several at
tempts were made by the inhabitants to ob
tain belter terms of surrender from the
commander of the Imperial forces, tut all
to no purpose.
On the 20lh, therefore, Windischgratz,
the commander of the Imperial forces,
commenced arr attack on the suburbs of
the city. On the 28th, the engagement
was chiefly confined to the southern and
eastern sides, while on tho western, batter
ies were heard at intervals. In the eve
ning, bombs were fired on tho city. Jella

mean time, taken complete possession of the

suburbs of Weiden. Many of the Nation
al Guards threw down their arm?, and a
great many weapons were found in iho ca
nst. The workmen, on the contrary, dis
played great valor. No students were ob
served at t tits lime as being openly engaged
in defence of tho city, and it was, there
fore, conjectured, that they had laid aside
their peculiar distinctive marks, for the
purpose of remaining incog.
It does not appear that many bombs
were thrown into the city. Between thir
ty and forty houses were burned down.
At II o'clock nt night, nothing was yet de
cided upon. Behind the victorious advance
of the troops, the inhabitants of tho city
tiscil were said to have raised white flags
of truce, as early as the previous evening;
which, however, were torn- down by the
operators. Onjy a few shells were thrown
into the city on the evening of the 28th.
As a means of inspiring terror, these
bombs were directed asainst the Univcrsi-
ly, but a great number of rockets and scrap-
nels were thrown on the following day.
On the 29th, at mid-dav. the troons were
already on (he glacis, at a distance of only
200 to 400 steps from tho wall of the Uni
versity. But on this day a truce was
agreed upon, which extended to the follow-
ing day at noon. Then the Hungarians
who had crossed the frontier, made an at-
tack on the Imperial troops, assisted by a
sortie of Hie Viennese, but they were com

Un the 31st, the accounts slate that the
Hungarians, 18,000 strong, attacked the
left wing of the force commanded by Jel

ed by Messenhauser, and mode a sally from
a gate in the vicinity of the Red Tower.
They were completely routed and diven
into (lie Danube.

On the evening of the 31st ull, the Imne-
rial troops made their first entry into the
inner town after having taken nil the fau

lions, upon which white flags had been rais
ed, they were suddenly received by a shower
oi Dans. &hells and rockets were thrown
into ihe town, and the imperial library and
a portion of the palace, were soon in flames.
The town submitted; and the Burgh, the
Karuthner gales and the Stephen's sauare
were occupied by the military. Still, a
busk fire was kept upon them from the
windows. 1 he Karuthner gales were then
stormed andbatiercd in by the troops, and
Ihe burgh corned by assault.
The students fought like madmen; and

lAYIAlH CELEBRATION IN LIN-
At a mass meeting of the Rough and
Ready Whigs of Linn county, held at the
court house in tlie town of Linneus, on
lucsdaythe 21st, ull., the following ofTi-
cers were called upon to preside: W. E.
MOBERLY, President, L. Stea RNES, W.
L. Reynolds, W. Saunuer9, David Pntw

After the President had briefly explained
tho object of the meeting, the following
gentlemen addressed the meeting in a man
ner suitable to the occasion : C. Boardman,
J. Smith, Mr. Jacobs, Edward Hoyle, and
W. E. Moberly.
An elderly gentleman, Mr. Edwards, who
had fought under old Zack, next addressed
the meeting, expressing his admiration for
the old hero, both as a soldier and as a man.
There were several cheers proposed for
Gen. Taylor, Milliard Fillmore, and Henry
Clay, all of which were enthusiastically
Mr. Edward Hoyle presented the fol
lowing resolutions :
Resolved, That we, the whigs of Linn
county, congratulate our brethren in the
good cause, on the election of that pure
and distinguished patriot, Gen. Zachary
Taylor to the Presidency, and his compat
riot, Milliard Fillmore, to the Vice Presi
dency of the United Slates.
Resolved, That we believe the interests
of our country will be safe in their hands;
that the government will be faithfully ad
ministered by them, and that they will pre
side over and consider the interests of the
whole people of our glorious Union, and
not of any particular section.
Resolved, That we hope and believe, that
during the next four years, our long neg
lected Rivers and Harbors will receive
that attention, which they so imperatively
demand, thereby increasing our commer
cial facilities, and rendering the lives and
properly of our citizens comparatively
Resolucd, That we sincerely believe, that
during the administration of Gen. Zachary
Taylor, the will of the people of tho LTni
ted States, as expressed through their rep
resentatives will be respected and faiihfully
carried out, and that hereafter the One
Man Power will be numbered with the
things that were.
The resolutions were unanimously adopt

agreed, that the proceedings of this meet

brilliantly illuminated, giving our demo

TIIE TEACHINGS OF NATURE.
" No harsh transitions Nature knows,
No dreary spaces intervene,
Her work in silence forward gi'es.
And nther felt than seen."
When the soul is dark and dreary
when the sun-light of Hope is all obscured
by the dark clouds of disappointment, and
her attempts to become nobler, purer, bet
ter, seem to have failed, then let her come
to Nature the all bountiful Teacher, and
learn a lesson; let her drink at this foun
tain of knowledge, and then refreshed and
strengthened, gird herself for new exer
tions and new trials.
Let her go forth in the dead of winter
and view ihe ice-bound earth, wrapped in
her shroud of snow. All life and warmth
stem to have fled; the trees stretch out
their skeleton limbs, bare and dreary, and
the streams are held fast by an icy hand;
but let not the desponding soul turn away
discouraged, for soon there shall be a
change. Gradually the snow disappears
from the face of Nature, for a warm breath
has reached it, and the ice and snow, like
the heart of man, though they resist the
grasp of coldness and severity, are sub
dued by the touch of kindness. Gently
and gradually Spring now approaches, and
upon tint fields a tinge of the lightest green
may be seen. By degrees the buds swell
upon the trees, and slowly enlarge until
the delicate green leaves appear; but not
in the full luxuriance of foliage are the
forest trees. Patiently they wait till the
rain and sunshine, drop by drop and ray by
ray, clothe them in their garb of richest
green. Desponding and repining one, thou
whose hopes have been disappointed in at
taining some cherished object, and whose
bosom swells with bitterness at thy lot, the
TV' - Jeuso
flowers of mid summer and the fruits ol
oulumn may teach thee a lesson, may teach
thee to wait patiently, and finally thou shall
attain the object of thy desires.

O3 The Hon. Henry Clay, in a recent
address to tho Ladies of Philadelphia, thus
truly and beautifuly describes the Trie
Sphere of Woman.
The constitution and laws of society, said
he, had drawn marked lines of distinction
between the sphere of action of tho two
sexes. Women were not permitted to min
gle in the public aflais of government. To
men belong the sterner duties of life the
cultivation of ihe earth the prosecution of
war, when the calamity of war unhappily
afflicted the country the conduct of the
public affairs of the nation. To women
belonged the domestic duties. It was their
duty to rear the young to instil into their
infant minds principles of morality and re
ligion, and feelings of patriotism, and above
all, to prepare ihe children of the country
for future usefulness and honor.
Women should have no regrets for this
exclusion from the duties assigned by soci
ety to men. If ihey knew their labors,
their cares, and their responsibilities, they
would have no wish to participate in them.
Notwithstanding the seeming separation in
the duties of the two sexes, there was none
in reality. Both were designed for the
same end, and both should strive for the at
tainment of the same object tho making
of our country great and glorious. Lei
both labor together, and then would our
country be great and glorious, our children
ornaments to society, and our peoplcaecept
able in the sight of God.
There were 150 deaths in Philadelphia
asl week 50 adults, and 02 children.
IIUTOKS jfc PROPRIETORS.
From the Prairie h'arnw
A New Fence. A young gentleman
from New York city has shown us a model
of a fence designed lo take Ihe place of
wire for lhat use. It consists of strips of
sheet iron, one and a half inches wide, fast
ened like boards to posts at suitable distan
ces. The main claim of superiority over
wire is, that the flat iron will bo of such
width that the cattle can sco it. ami ;it
thus avoid running against it. It is ihr.,,nt,
also, that it can be built cheaper, butof ihis
we doubt much. The iron it is said canrr,
bo manufactured in this country; which
win oe a great drawback lo the achemfi in
its competition with wire; which is now
plenty and easy to be obtained.
It would be advisable to make Irial of it
and test in lhat manner its claims. It is im
possible lo pronounce off hand upon the
value of a scheme like this. It is claimed
that it will stop swine.but we should as soon
think of catching lightning in a calender, as
to stop swine with a wire, or a sheet iron
fence, unless it were made into a sieve or
a close iron wall.
Sowing Sleds in Autumn Cobbctt in
his "American Gardener," recommends tho
sowing of several kinds of seed in Autumn
such, for instance, os carrots, beets, on
ion?, parsnip?, dnd many other kinds. Ha
remarks, in illustration of the truth of this
theory, that "the seeds of all plants will re
main jafe in this way all winter, though tho
frost penetrate to the depth of three feet
below them, except the seeds of such plants
as a slight frost will cut down." A writer
of some distinction, in one of our agricul
tural exchanges, strenuously advocates the
same plan, and remarks that this is the natu
ral system pursued by Dame Nature, who
casts all her seeds upon ihe soil in autumn,
and never fails of a crop. Onions w e havo
long practised sowing in ihe Fall, and the
same method is adopted by many especial
ly by those who wish to have them early
for ma i ketjng.
