beauty must strike every one who sees it : and
it is no less happy in its likeness to the Father
of his country. It was my good fortune to have
seen hiin in the days of my boyhood, and his
whole appearace is yet strongly impressed on
my memory. The portrait you have issued ap
1 ears to me to be an exact likeness, representing
perfectly the expression as well as the form and
features of the face." And says Senator Cass,
if is a life-like representation of the great original.
President Fillmore says, "the work appears to
ine to have been admirably executed and emi
inun! worthy of the patronage of the public."
avs'.Marchaut the eminent portrait painter, and
the pupil of Stuart, "your print to my mind is
laore remarkable than any other I have seen,

Stcpheb B. Ross arrived at Independence on
the 17th inst., from Utah. He reports that at
Salt Lake City great activity pervaded every de
partment of trade. Emigrants were arriving
freely generally in good health and gave a
great impetus to business. ' The crops were ve
ry abundant, and promised a large surplus.
Governor Young's administration of the territo
ry was giving great satisfaction to the people,
and in local politics there was a dead calm.
Vast numbers of Indians were still collected
about Fort Laramie, awaiting the arrival of Ma
jor Fitzpatrick, whose unaccountable delay gave
great dissatisfaction to them. The goods for
distribution among them reached the fort seve
ral weeks ago. The Nez-Perces Flat head tribe
were assembled at Fort Bridges. They vrere
also expecting presents from the United States
government. The Snake Indians made a treaty
with the Yampones, and afterwards, while on a
buffalo tnint, fell in with a band of Cheyennes,
and haa-aekifmish, during which some of the
latter.;verekilled. ,
" The fenakes and other tribes had sent an am
bassador to the Chiefs of the Utahs, expressing
a desire to make a treaty of peace. Mr. Rose
and his party experienced no molestation from
the Indians during their trip. Phelps's train
with the Secretary cf the Treasury of Utah ter
ritory, was getting aiv&g well.
The Mormon's are building up a dense city
at Salt Lake, and extending their settlements in
all directions in the valley. The Tabernacle is

Mr. Ross learned at Fort Kearney, that a war
party of Pawnees was out against the Sioux.
The .Late Duke or Wellington.
The Duke of "Wellington is by this time
buried. The soul of the late body is Grod
knows where. The vollies fired above his
jrrave. and the flatteries so crosslv uttered,
not alone to the dead Duke, but to the
living Empire, that worshipped him as its
own image and likeness, begin now to clear
away.. We nave stooa uy pauemiy at, it
all, but even beside L.ake .brie, in tue name
of History and Heroism, in the name of
India, Ireland, and the century we live in,
we must raise our protest against this in
famous conspiracy to cheat posterity.
The Duke of Wellington a Hero ! a lib
erator! a sage! a christian! "a perfect
man !" Do they who assert these things,
imagine that they can keep history under
a Hobbs lock, which no expert can pick ?
Do they suppose our own days so deluded
with words, that all memory of essential
facts, has passed away ? It seems so, but
here, as elsewhere, seeminy is not leiny.
The Duke of Wellington's character had
two parts, and only two. He was for thir
tv vears a soldier, for thirty more a states
man. In 1798 he won his first battle; in
1818 liis lnsr,. From the ppaop till thft last
session of the Westminster Parliament, he
was constantly engaged in what he meant
to be, the government of the Empire of
which he was the first subject.
That two exhibitions of power, such as
his in peace and war, constitute the highest
greatness, we deny. Even material great
ness requires a pre-eminence over others,
in meeting the special requirements of the
cotemporary age. Moral greatness the
only true requires service of a more fun
damental and ethical character. To the
last, we presume, the eulogists of the Duke
do not advance any claims on his account.
He was neither Apostle, Doctor, nor Or
ganizer ; neither was he Discoverer, Inven
tor, or Founder of anything which exists
in the material order if we except Apsley
house, and a Ducal posterity. To origin
ality, the greatness which Columbus, Mi
chael Angelo, and Napoleon had, the late
Duke can advance no claim.
His place, then, is in the second rank of
mnfpriallv jrreat men. There his own ac
tions for sixty years of public life, have
bound him, and all the special pleaders in
Britain cannot undo the chain of facts by
which he is held there.
Let us remember that he was by birth
an Irishman ! His youth, his first tnends,
st. him. were Irishmen ; his
very outfit for India, was advanced by a
Dublin tradesman. In Ireland the tombs
of his ancestors invited him. Yet in near-
iv f.-n-tir vAnrs nf neane. livinjr within a day s
journey of it, he never once visited the
land ot his birth I
He was left fatherless, and his education
was solely conducted by his mother. That
mother lived to see him one of the richest
and most famous men in Europe. Yet he
- rv 1 1
suffered her to die in debt sunerea ner
personal effects, her very wardrobe, to be
seized and sold to pay off the debts of the
mother of Wellington.
He was a husband, and one who claimed
great self-control. Yet his intrigues, un
til a comparatively recent day, were noto
rious. His silly letters to Madame lleca
niier, are but a small part of the indict
ment against him, as a husband and father.
As a captain he was great, rather by
prudence and labor, than by genius or in
vention. His intense tenacity of purpose
was certainly heroic. In that quality, he
may compare with the most famous sol
diers of antiquity. The Peninsular war is
the true theatre of his glory, because it was
there he displayed his best quality to most
advantage.
But to talk of him as the conqueror of
Napoleon, is simply absurd. Europeaud
the Pope conquered Napoleon. The Keys
nf Russia, the walls of
Leipsic, the exile of Elba, had prepared the
French army to be beaten. But even then
it was not England, but all Europe that
dUThe conqueror of Napoleon should not
only have beaten him in arms, but also in
magnanimity. Did Wellington this ? Did
he attempt to save the wounded feelings
of a gallant people. No! he triumphed
over France with the insensibility of a Cos
sack. He danced and dined in Paris, like
a Calmuck. He might have called in
clemency to minister to victory that an
gel whose presence will purify even camps
but he did the very reverse. Ney, La
boydere, and the other victims of his victo
ry, were sacrificed to the peculiar British
God, Expediency. For saving Lavalette,
he plucked the epaulettes from the shoul
ders of young Hutchinson, at the head of
his regiment.
Conqueror of Napoleon indeed ! The
shadow of the Emperor has more real pow
er to-day, than all the works and house of
Wellinton !
As a statesman we cannot assign him a
high place. His forte was in resisting
charges in their first stages, and in know
ing when he was beat. With such a ruler
successful demagogueism was sure to con
quer. Hence the merit of the very meas
ures he conceded was given to others of
Emancipation to O'Connell, of Keforni to
Brougham, of Free Trade to Cobden. He
was a disciple of Peel's school in politics
a school, which is explained, by the single
word Ezjjedhmcy. No honest student of
history can, for a moment, mention him be
side Kichalieu or Ximenes, or cither of the
Pitts, as a minister of state.
European Murders.
A Parisian correspondent, writing under
date of Sept. 6, says : The Vienna papers
give an account of a horrible affair thus :
A peasant sold at a fair a pair of oxen ; and
on his return, having been drinking rather
too much, he placed the money he had re
ceived, in a girdle which he fastened round
his daughter, who accompanied him. On
passing through a wood, a man stopped
then and demanded the money. The peas
ant denied having any. The man know
ing fiat he had sold the oxen, seized him
by the h-"r and dragged him a little way
iuto the wood. There two other men join
ed the first, and the three murdered the
peasant. The daughter distinctly saw the
crime perpetrated. She took flight, reach
ed a cottage, told the inmate, a woman, of
what had occurred, and said she had the
mony on her. This money the woman
took and fastened in a drawer, and, in com
pliance with the prayer of the girl, secreted
her in an adjoining bed-chamber.
The three men then came, told of their
crime, and one, it seems, was the woman's
husband. Thereupon she, with a loud
laugh, said the daughter was in the next
room, aud she produced the belt, to their
great joy. The men recollecting that the
girl could betray them, resolved at once to
destroy her, and the plan they agreed on
was to burn her to death in the oven, and
soon the girl heard the flames crackling.
Desperately she sought the means of es
cape, and finding the wall was of clay, she
was able to make a hole large enough to
creep through. Escaping, and meeting
gens d'armes, the whole party of wretches
were captured.
A Belgian trial for murder is not less
singular ; A brutal character, whose wife
had been forced to leave him owing to hi
bad conduct, strangled her slowly in a wood,
and then cooly went to the Mayor and re
ported that his wife's body had been dis
covered. But it so happened that a lad on
the look out for bird nests, was aloft and
saw the transaction, though afraid to make
a noise. This witness was decisive, and
the murderer was condemned to death.
Crimes of murder youug men killing
their mistresses for jealousy are not of
rare occurrence in France ; and the philoso
phy of murder here shows less regard for
woman than with us, always saving the
wholesale murder of travellers.
Whence, then, was his greatness? It
conststed in his self-control, his tenacity,
and his love of labor. He was something
of the mastiff and bull-dog breed mixed.
He was a fine sample of the material
sublime." Fortune was not his mistress,
but rather his waiting woman ; as such he
commanded and she obeyed. Though their
relation was neither romantic nor cordial, it
lasted for the Duke's lifetime. She kept
him abundantly supplied, from Assaye to
Waterloo, and these supplies, delivered
with, counting house precision, were one
cause of his Peninsular success. Still un
doubtedly he had that within him, which
commanded success, and without which ev
ery material aid would have failed him
Half a century from the day of his burial,
the verdict of history will, we doubt not,
be, that he stands among the first, in the
second class, of materially great men in
.ithpr words " men ot the world."
"As a Christian, the less said of him the
better. No one ever heard a religious sen

matter of course. He regarded the Church,
like the Arm v. as a branch of the national
defences, nothing more. Though hanging
two days between life and death, no cler-

Mankind Originally Savages.
The opinion that mankind were original
ly savages is unsupported by either reason
or history. Had they been created sava
ges, they would probably have remained
savages forever. They could have foriied
no idea of civilization which had never ex
isted, nor have desired comforts the wint
of which they did not feel. History does
not record a single instance of a savage na
tion having become civilized by its own un
assisted exertions Civilization has never
sprung up spontaneously from the soil : it
has always been imported from abroad.
The Greeks derived their civilization from
the Egyptians the Bonians theirs from
the Greeks; tho nations conquered by
Home became civilized from their inter
course with the llomnns. But, if we at
tempt to trace the origin of civilisation in
Egypt and Babylon, we are at a loss ; for
neither history, nor even tradition, men
tions any period at which they were not
civilized. The researches of Layard and
llawlinson, in the ruins of Niuevah, may
throw some faint beams oh this hitherto
unapproachable myrtery.
Fears of a. Revolution la Australia..
The intelligence, the wealth, and respectabil
ity which is now emigrating to Australia, will
never endure contact with that foul stream of
emigration which government is sending by a
different channel to meet and mingle with it
there. It is not merely that the express from
Van Iriernen's Land cross over the narrow strait
that separates them from Australia. Govern
ment admits that C84 prisoners under sentence
has escaped to the gold fields ; an admission,
considering the quarter from which it comes,
may well be most liberally construed. AVe can
look to nothing else Irom' the infatuated perseve
rance in the present system than earlier, a more
disgraceful, and a more disastrous trpara
tion between this country and her Australian than
between her and her American colonies. Its not t6
be forgotten that while America was valuable
only through her trade, Australia has a peculiar
value of her own. If we people that vast conti
nent with a people of our own race, and then
make that nation our enemy, in losing one em
pire we endanger the possession of another.
With a powerful Anglo Saxon country 60 close
to her coasts, who shall insure to us the perma
nent dominion of India ? We may hope to hold
it against Europe and America, because their
distance from it is as remote as our own ; but
against another America in the Southern seas,
animated as we seem determined it shall be, by
a yet bitter spirit of animosity, our hold upon
India will be feeble indeed. We are planting
a great nation ; its geographical position will
render it a great ally, or a most dangerous ene
my, and our statesmen seem determined that it
shall be the latter. London Time. Oct. 1.
Tlie Republic of Liberia.
The Republic of Liberia is progressing 6lowly
but surely. The enterprise is a great one ; but
for some cause or other we are unable to explain
it has not met with its due share of public at
tention. A prejudice exists in tue mtnis or our
colored population in relation to the colony, aud
hence the difficulty. Within a year or two,
however, this has materially softened, and hence
the prospects of Liberia are beginning to bright
en. Sixty emigrants recently sailod from New
York under the management of the 8tate Colo
nization Society, and as w learn, five hundred
are about to depart from Norfolk arid two hun
dred from New Orleans. It should beremembcr-
ered that the existence of the Republic ef Libe
ria as a nation, has been formally acknowledge!
bv some of the great European powers. The
native chiefs in the neighborhood have abandon
ed all hostility, the arts of peaco are prospering
and an active trade is springing up. . May we
not hope that the corner stone of a great em
pire of the colored race has been laid in Liberia,
A Scene at Marseille.
A Paris correspondent of the New York Cou
rier says "Among the incidents of the Prince's
visit to Marseilles was particularly remarked
the presence upon the Place St. Ferreol, on tho
line of the princely procession of one hundred
and twenty American seamen in uniform. They
were clustered beneath the expanded Stars and
Stripes. . ,
At their head were the Captains of thevarioas
American merchant ships now in that port. As
Louis Napoleon passed in frout of them, they
greeted hira with three hearty hurrahs, to which
the Trlnce responded, say the accounts, with
'affectionate salutations." At a public dinner,
the same evening, the Prince stopped in front cf
the American Consul and graciously said to
him, "I recognized your sailors on my route
and was pleased to see them, (fai ek tre satk
fait de lea voir") The Nouvelliste of Marseilles
adds "The four stories of the house of the
Consul were brilliantly illuminated at night, and
the portrait f the Emperor was exhibited be
side that of Waehingtotu"
