C. IV. 4 Z. Railroad Cheering News
We learn from Mr. Woodward, who lias just
returned from Zanosville, thut a meeting of
the Board of Directors of the Cincinnati,
Wilmington and Zanrxvillu Ruilroad Com
pany, was held there on yestcrsduy. Lttst
evening:, a railroad supper wag given by the
citizens of that dry. The utmoBt enthusi
asm, and our friend of tho Scioto flu,. it,, to
I the contrary notwithstanding, the uUnost
harmony prevailed. In a very short time,
. Thursday Evcuiiitf Sopt., , thirty-four thousand dollars was subscribed
to imc capital etock of tho company and no
subscription less than one thousand dollarr.
Thirty citizens subscribed thirty thousand
dollars. It is expected that, in a few duvs.
.ti'ii 1848, complimentary dinner was given
to" Gen. Scott, and Gen. Shields was pros-
ent. Ho holds a high pomtibn in the ranks
anu wo i;umiut:nu itioiu-
cfthe opposition
marks and opinion American Patriots,
' not to men who would sender tho best aud
bravest of the sons of America. Tho fol-.
t lowing toast was given:
. (the Brigadier General of the some now pres
, ent:),: A worthy, chieftain of that heroic
tana whohAve conspicuously carried out tho
" heroic oounsol of the Spartivo mothers, to
'return cither with or upon their "Shields."
'i . . General Shields rose and said: "Mr. Pres.
ildeut, with your permisBion and the .consent
"of the company, I wish, as a subordinate of
ficerof the 'American army, to give the
, health of that distinguished commander un
" jfler whom my honorablo and gallant friend
' and myself have had the honor to serve. I
feel it due from me to Gen. Scott applause
first as one of the officers haviug returned
, from the head-quarters of the army which he
rso nobly and successfully ..commanded. I
think it still further due, returning as I do
J with a conviction that that army has been
ieommanded in such a manner by Gen. Scott
' as to call forth tho applause, and admiration,
and high regard, not only of his country
f men. but of the whole world. It would be a
"useless and foolish undertaking on my part
to.'attempt adequately to describe before
this intelligent assembly the skill and high
military knowledge displayed by Gen. Scott
in the conduct of that Army, from its land
ing at Vera Cruz until it entered the garita
(at Mexico. If I should attempt tho task I
should fail. I could not portray with just
ness the conduct of that distinguished com
mander in the hazzardous enterprise in which
he has been engaged. But I will say this,
that in the history of the world in the
annals of all military afluirs and enterprises
that I have ever read, I find no entorp'riso
comparuhlo with the capture or Vera Cruz.
One of tnc strongest positions in the world-
so strong, indeed, tlmt it was deemed olmost
impregnable by tho military minds of tho
'world, and yet on a roast the inost difficult of
jiccoxs in the work, it fell before a" army o1
. . ... - i . e ... l.. ...
twelve thousand men wun a iow u. umy i
score. (Applause.) And. the same skill
which enabled him to accomplish this under
taking, marked every myvemcntof his pro
gress until ho entered the gates of Mexico"
In the remarks of Mnj. General Jessup, rc-
. specting the bruvery and gallantry nndintel
gence of the officers of our army, I heurtly
concur. Neither England, France, or any
' other country in the world has such a body
of intelligent young officers in iiie Bold as
those who accompanied Gen. Scott into the
city of Mexico, and if ever I entertained a
thought against West Point,! now-make tho
amende honorable, and recall any thing to the
prejudice of that institution that I muy have
thomrht or uttered. (Great applause.) So,
it is with regard to Gcn; Scott. . If I ever
harbored aught against him, politically or
otherwise for a "hasty plate of soup'(laugh
iter) or slow plate ofsoup I reca.l it all, and
make the amende to him also, and soy that I
should be very unwilling to see any other
man take ail army of ten thousand men into
tho valley of Mexico, and attempt to lead
them in safety. . Such an undertaking re
quires not' only unquestionable bravery of
the soldier and gallantry of the officer, but a
great superintending military mind, that had
conquered arid mado himself master of his
profession, and thus fitted him&clf to accom
plish such an almost miraculous enterprise.
With yoffr permission, Mr. President, and
that of the company, Igiveyou tho health
of - Major General .Winfiuld .Scott." (Ap
plause.) ,

, Dissolution or the Union Party i s G pji
gja. We nnnounoed yesterday thutthe ex
ecutive committee of tho Union party of Ga.
had withdrawn the Pierce electoral ticket,
nominated ut Milleilccville, and declared the
party dissolved. The address of the com';
mittce has since come to hum!, and we learn
from it that this step hus been taken in con
sequence of the fact that all piirtiesin Geor
gia now advocate the compromise, und that
the Union whifs, to a considerable extent,
have shown a determination nut to adhere to
tho ticket, but to support either Webster or
Scott. The committee was composed of
seven, and five of them have published t n
address 'o tho Union Democrats and Whigr,
who muy be for Pierce and Kinp, urging
theur to meet at Atlautu, on the 18th of
Sept., to determine on their future course,
They uvow their readiness to support tho
regular Pierce and King electors, provided
the original friends of the hitter ticket are
willing to conciliate and compromise with
them. There are still three electoral tick
ets in tho field in Georgia one for Scott
and Graham, the second for Webster and
Jenkins, and tho third for Pierce and Kinf.
Tho law requires the successful ticket to
have a clear majority of all the votes cast.
The Sacs and 1 ox Indians, now on a
visit to Washington, visited the Department
of the Commissoners of Indians all'nirs, on
Thursday, when Major Mix, the chief clerk,
in the uhseeuce of Col. Leu, asrtirod them
that their Great Father would give luc-m a
form a I interview ufter the adjournment of
congress, and in the meantime every atten
tion would be paid to their comfort and
pleasure. The Indians expressed them
selves highly gratified at Major Mix's re
marks. Among tl o delegation, consisting
of eight, is a son of the celebrated Keokuk,
who visited Washington in 1S37. Ihe
Sacs miiiib?r lit this time about thirteen
hundred souls: the Poxes about seveii hund
red. The tribe still retains its love of sav
age life and manners beyond almost all oth
ers of the removed Indians on our borders.
They dislike schools, missionaries, und even
dwellings and many of thein yearn to go
further West, that they may be still more
distant from civilization, as well as nearer
the buffalo und other garni?. Their efforts
at cultivation have been very feeble, though
they inhabit a line oountry, well adapted to
successful agriculture. The tribe has a
fund ot thirty thousand dollars.
The Henry Clay Disaster. An appli
cation for a discharge of tho writ of habeas
corpus, in tho case of tho parties implicated
in the Ilenrv Clay disaster, was ' made in
tho Supreme Court of New York, on Thurs
day, and Tuesday next set apart tor its Hear
ing. The .principal points of tho applica
tion are, that tho case does not come with
in tho meaning of the State law defining
murder, there having been no intention to
take life, and the nurties not in the perpe
tration of, any felony or misdemeanor, at the
time, from which death ensued; Uiat tne
boiler was not overcharged so as to burst, as
it did not burst, and tho allegation that an
undue heat had been caused for an unlawful
purpose not being sufficient; they also claim
that the United States nave exclusive con
trol, whore a law of Congress exiwts, over all
transactions connected with navigation, m
tide-waters, as well as at sea, and that they
are already under arrest on process from the
U. S. court.

A Startling PBKDiCA.MEsT.--On Satur
day ono of our citizens was on a visit to
Canada, and about the time the storm . of
that evening was coming on, started in a car
riage lo rctnrn to the American side. When
about mid-way of the "suspension bridge"
the storm struck them with appalling fury.
The wind blow a perfect tornado, while the
air was densely filled with bail and rain,
and so potent was the wind that the bridge
swayed laterally to and fro, ten or a dozen ,
feel,makingone giddy witn its-vibrations. Ho .
appalling was the commotion that the hors-f '
es stopped and fiaally fell upon their sides .
on the bridge, while the driver in the extrem-,
ity of bis terror, seemed incapable ol making
the least effort to move from tbe perilous
spot. The inmates of the carriage could
with difficulty keep their 'seats, and for a-
short time expected nothing else but to be. '
