GOLDSBOROUGH or dorchester COUNTT. ' j TELEGRAPHIC, j Richmond August 8, 8 A. M. The. New Orleans papers of the 26ih ult., ?re at hand. No news whatever in them from the seal of war. The rumor of the appoint ment of negotiator# having beeo appointed j by Mexico io meet Mr. Trial ia regarded by all the New 0< leans presses as a hoax?as a ?Mexican rumor f The weather with us is pleasant and cool. You shall have the earliest intelligence that reaches here from Drouigoole's District on Thursday. The Whigs are positive that they will beat Meade. American Mail.?Thia admirable Weekly is gaiping new laurels every day. It ia a mine of literary treasure, it is for sale at Brooke, Shillington &. Co. BLAcrwpoD.? The July number of this ad mirable Monthly is at hand?thanks to the attention of the enterprising publishers, Messrs. Leonard Scott & Co. It is for tale at Adam's Depot, where persons wishing to subscribe should call. This is the beginning of a new volume, and now is the time to order it. We reserve a notice of this and other English Periodicals on our table for another occesion. To Correspondents.?The Ghost Story of "Jim T water" is received and shall have a place in due time. " A Subscriber" will please leave his name m the office. '? Vamos" ia, no go. Will C leave his name at the office. The Rus iab Bath.?We are glad to learn that Mr. Whitney's Russian Bath at the corner of 4$ street and Missouri Avenue, is the favor ite resort of the lovers of clean skins. It is certainly the most luxurious mrde of bathing that we ever tried. The New York Coriespoudent of the Boston Post d,?no other than Mr. Southworth?calls the Rev'd. Mr. MeCalla, the brother of the Learned Auditor of the Treasury, a well prac tiled liar. As all the parties concerned in the Spy business, the Boston Post, Mr. South worth, the Rev'd. Mr. MeCalla, the President, and the 2nd Auditor are Democrats, we must leave them to settle the point of veracity among themselves. OCJ- Several advertisements have been receiv ed, but too late for insertion in to-day's paper? they will appear to morrow. Major Arnold Harris has obtained the Con tract for carrying the Mails from Panama to Astoria ia Steamboats. It is said that he took the contract with great reluctance and at a tremendous saei ifice!! T?x Annapolis Riot,?The result of the investigations into this untoward affair is, that nobody was to blame! If they had been car? ried a UuLe further, we have no doubt, it would have turned out that no riot took place. The Washington Cotton Factor* This enterprize is still on the tapis. We think it is .true that it should be in loco. Pinev Point.? We learn that this celebrat ed resort is all that heart can wish for this ?eason. The t?ble gronns with good things, and the comforts and accommodations of vis iters are superior to those furnished in post* times. Now is the lime to escape from the city heat to this delightful retreat, PocrjTABt.E.?A country editor says; "We understand a man of this town boasts that he has made filieen hundred dollars by attending to his own hveines*, and five hundred dollars more by letting other people's alone." Yes, and the money he made was a trifle in com 4>arison with the vexat on he saved others by ?not meddling with whai did not concern him., L?bertt.?We like Burke's ideas of liberty. Me says : "Men are qualified for civil liberty, in exact proportion to their disposition tp put chains upon their own appetites; in proportion as their love ol justice is above their rapacity; in proportion as their soundness and sobriety of understanding is above their vanity and presumption, in propor lion as they are more disposed to listen to the counsels of the wise and good, in preference to the flattery ol knaves. -Ci/MaiRLAND Coal ?The Pittsburg Journal asserts that it was this coal which was on Wd the Mississippi steamship and that it is always subject to spontaneous combustion. The Journal is in error. It was English coal which was on board the Mississippi. Cum bertand coal not being sulphurous, is never sub 10 spontaneous ignition. We hope the Journai?vill make this correction. Pittsburg .coal does not need misrepresentation of Cum ?berland coal to .endorse its character. We learn, there is no truth in the rumor ?hat (he President has revoked the commission of Brigadier General granted to Col. Price, and conferred it upon Col. Doniphan, in conse quence ol Mr, Marcy'd having called the atten tion of the Executive to the exploits of the hero of Sacramento. On the contrary, it is said, lhat Mr. Polk expresses hia utter disbelief in Col. Doniphan's story! A Hoax.?A petaon?a Spaniard, says the New Orleans Bee, arrived at Tampico on the J7th, having left the Capitol on the morning of the 6th. He reported that up to that date Congres had not assembled, and the prepara tions were going on to fortify and defend the Capital. General Scott's forces had not moved from Puebla on the 5th. It is the opinion of the Editors of La Patria that the report of Commiaaionera' having been appointed to meet Mr. Trist at San Martin Teamulcan, is a hoax. Their correspondent states that no such cora mittea had been appointed. The Maxicaus had * considerable force at the Capital, and ware preparing for a battle, which they deemed iaaritabie. GEN. TAYLOR AT MONTEREY. Hie Speeche* on the 4th qf July. The New Orleans Picayune hu t detailed account of the celebration of the 4ih of'J?ly at Monterey It took place at' the camp of General Taylor, in the wood of 8an Domingo. General Cusbing opened the ball by a beauti ful and appropriate speech, (too long for our columns,) in which he alluded Very happily to General Taylor* The old Hero responded in the following felicitous strain : oek. Taylor's reply. ? General: In reply to your eloquent and com plimentary allusions to the services of the army under my command, I can only briefly express my thanks aud those of the brave men or my command, to whose exertions and gallantry, alone our successes are due. For myself I can elaim no merit.Ikjtiad that of sharing and en countering danger with them You have traced up and depicted in most faithful colors the rSpid progress of our country from the commence ment to its present condition of greatness and prosperity?occupying the front rank in the nations of the world. The existing war may show the world that in great national enterpri ses and interests we are firm and united?and that the flower of our country, without dig Unction of party, is always readv to vindicate the national honor on the ba>tie field. Should it be our lot to resume offensive operations on this line, I shall move with evelry confi.ieuct* in tbe gallantry and success of the forces. I have but little doubt that those who have hut i recently come into the field, and have not been I able to participate m active service as yet, will distinguish themselves as greatly as tUose'who have gone before. That thousands ol volun teers who hav?, many of them, been brought up in affluence, have left their pursuits and comfortable homes, to encounter the hardships ol an active campaign, is a sufficient guaranty that the rights and honor of our country will always be maintained. A general shaking of .hands ensued, and (he company partook of a substantial lunch, pro vided by the h< 'able chief. He had a smile and a pleasan 1 for all. In the even dinner was given at Arista's house. On this occasion Lieutenant Puller, of the Massachusetts regiment, gave the follow ing toast: General Taylor.?We hail Ijim as the npxt President; may his civil be as brilliant as his military career. (This sentiment was druuk with three times three.) Gen. Taylor rose and tesponJed to this sen timent in tlje following admirable mariner: Mr. President and Gentlemen i 1 have never had the vanity to aspire to or look for that ele vated situation which has just been alluded to, but if my fellow countrymen think proper to elevate me to so distinguished and honorahle a position, I certainly shall do my I est to dis charge the duties of that responsible position faithfully. But if any other candidate is pre (erred and offered who may be more competent than myself, I need not sfly that I shall acqui esce most cheerfully in their decision, and shall rejoice that theie is one more worthy to repre sent them in the highest office in their gift. He then gaye an a toast: The State of Massachusetts and the City of Boston?The place where our liberties were cradled ; whose sons have home so conspicu ous a part in the establishment and maintenance of the principles of our independence and the constitution, and have gallantly maintained the same by sea and land. Scene in Taylor's Tent.?Maj Bliss had, says the New Orleans National, travelled thro' an immen^ number of pjjjjtary titles, and reading aloud, had got into the jist of the offi cial looking letter, when he stumbled on the following: " Send me also Bragg's and Wash ington's batteries." Hereupon old Zac wheeled round on his C3mp 9lopl suddenly, and as rapidly as he could articulate, he exclaimed, "Ah, what is that?" Now, Major Bliss was taken all aback by the order he had read , so he recovered from hjs surprise, and began reading again the sen teope that had created so much excitement in the old hero?" Send me also Bragg's and Washington'# batteries.1' This was too much?all the old veterans of the 8ih and 9th gone, aud most of the voluu teers (hat had served at Monterey?and to or der off ihe small remnant of artillery left wiih him, made old Zac perfectly terrible. His eye brows elevated themselves until (hey displayed a pair of glowing eyes ihat seemed to be burn ing within their sockets j even the old brown coat for a moment assumed a sort of indignaut air, and the nap of it, where there was any left, turned up with indignation. " S-a-y to h-i-ni, not aiwthcr gun," articu lated Ihe General with difficulty. The storm was parsed, the eyebrows fell into their places, the dark eye twinkled with philosophic resig nation, and the mouth grew into a good natyred smile, and not anoiher word was ever said about ijje older so summarily answered, so positively disobeyed. The battle ol Buena Vista in lime followed, j and the part look in it by the light anillery has become immortal fame j and the prompt reply of ?' not auotlier gun," was consequently lb! lowed by if A little more grape, Citpi. Bragg." THE UNION AND GEN. TAYLOR. The Union ol the H'b, has a thiee column article saya the New Orleans Bulletin, on the subject of General Taylor and the Whigs, from which we take the following, which we suppose may be considered as the Union's 'confession of faith,' as regards the old veteran. It will be seen that General Taylor will, in no way suit the Uni n, for it will give no support to him or any other candidate, unless 1st. Tb?t he is fully imbued with tbe princ ples of the party, and aounu 'upon the leading points which constitute the Democratic platform of principle.' 2d. That he shall previoualy avow his sentiments and promise before band to carry out the party creed, and 8. That he should he npproved of and nominated by a Democratic Convention. Here, then, are three important points, and we speak sdviaedly when we say that in no case, nor 'under any circumatances,' will Gen. Taylor agree to or aubmit to any ?*a of them. He weald be torn asander by wild' horses, before be would agree to any such conditions. The Union need make no further avowela of stand ing 'uncommitted,' or that it has not 'formed any de cision in regard to Gen. Tayler. We think that it m very comfortably 'committed,' and that both it and the party are effeeteally fixed for 'slow travelling,'if they will only adhere to the text now promulgated. It ie said that Fanny ElMer is going to revisit this oountry. The Knickerbocker says, that instead of oar citiaana giving a dollar a piece to aee her stand on one lag; they had better g.va the money to thoee poor devils who have bat one leg to stand up OCT* Neither the New Orleans Delta nor the Pica ynn* papen thoroughly poated in Mexican new*? halievee a word of the peaos nuaor from Pnebla. DARKNESS VISIBLE. Other cities may have peculiar characteris tics in which they surpass their neighbors, but | we defy them to begin to .rival Washington in | the pitchy- darkness of its streets in general, j and ou Sunday nights ?the shops being shut in particular.' To put. the lull force of our remark, let some wayfarer, when it is "moon light by ordinance," attempt to wend his way ?long Pennsylvania avenue, to say noihiug of the more retired streets, and he will find him self bothered in a way past finding out. Hisi! pit pat, pit pat, there comes a footstep?hut where??in front or "in the rear?" as Gen. Scott would say?"Devil take that puddle!" Splash?splash?splash, and a groan. Ah you're into it, are you, my friend V* Into it, | yes; but where am 1 and where are you ?"? "Here 1 am, are you hurt?" "No?but my clothes are mud from lop to toe." "Oh is that all??that's a mere circumstance in Washing ton?good night." "Good uight; take care you don't get into the same fix. My visit's | spoiled for to-night." Now wc hold that when the poet sang in praise of city life and what he calls "the sweet | serenity of streets" he included a fair supply ofliyht to walk by when the "lady moon" is away. To the "geutle" who ride in carriages with fine lamps-it is a matter of moonshine \ whether the streets are lighted 01 not, but to th<? "simple" who hare to foot it, it's quite a different affair. These people nevertheless, pay their share of the taxes and expect in re turn to be able to visit a friend at night without running the risk of being smothered in mud or knocked down by a post. We mean no disre spect, but it would be well to make the mem bers of Congress walk a few miles every night while they are here, to let them understand the darkness by which "the seat of the National Government" is infested. It is "positively shocking," and if the corporation cannot afford to keep the lumps lighted, Congress should.? Should Mr. Crutcheit's plan succeed he may help us out of the scrape, in some degree at least?"a consummation devoutly to he wish ed." .Geh. Wo??.? We have direct information, says the Louisville Journal, from many sources that Gen. Worth is a Whig. We have that direct information from Locofoco as well as from Whig officers?for instance, from Major S., a very warm Democrat and one of Gen. Worth's most intimate personal friends, who, after bestowing the most exalted praises upon Gen. W., assured us that he was a thorough Whig, and about the only Whig in the nation whom he would be willing to support fur the Presidency. Gen. Worth is a N w Yorker, and you will not find any New ik paper expressing a doubt of his Wlw^ism. There may be a good deal of merit among the Demo cratic officers and soldiers of the army, but there is no IVorth among them?no general Worth, and, so far as we know, no private Worth. European Letter Postage.?We learn, that the British Government refused to make any arrangement with Mr. Hobbie in relatiou 10 the postage of letters destined for Great Britain and sent by the Americau steamships, but that it charged on all letters which went by the Washington Steamer the same postage as id paid by the Cunard line. Mr. Bancroft has remonstrated in strong terms at this discourte ous treatment of his government. We trust, if the Queen's Government does not come to a speedy arrangement, that our Executive will retaliate and that too severely. If Mr. Polk has not the power .by law, he can hssume it from the "law of nations." Great Britain must not be allowed to have the monopoly of the transmission of intelligence. OfiE OP TOO MANY. Froin the Brooklyn Advertiser. Passing along [Icmy street on Saturday eve ning, we were accosted by a little girl, clothed in rags and patches, with ' please, sir, to give me a lew coppers. I am hungry and mother is hungry and my two brothers and one sister are sick : do give me a few coppers, sir." She was about eight years of age, and her sunken follow cheeks aud tattered dress showed plain ly that she was the child of poverty ' Is your lather home?' we asked. ' Father died sud denly and was buried last Monday,' said the little girl, as the tears flowed down her cheeks. ' Please give me a few coppers,' she continued, ' we are so hungry.' It was evideut that the little girl spoke the truth, and we asked her il she would shew us to the place where she liv ed. ' It's a long way,' she replied, ' and its dark all the way up-stairs to the room where mother is. We took her hand; lor many a block S^e led us on, and as she spoke of her fa ther's death she wepf. ' When father di< d' she said, ? my brother cried all day and all night too, until it made him sick, and I'm afraid he will die. But he don't cry uow; he is too sick and weak and mother has no money to pay a doctor, and uo medicine, nor nothing nice to give him to eat. O, sir, make haste,' she. said, as she ran ahead, ' mother will want the pennies I have got, and and wif! be so glad to see you, lor no body has been in the room since father died.' Kor many a block we were led by the ragged but now gladsome little cbaterrer, aud at length shestvpped before the door of a house nearly in the centre of a block of buildings, and trip ping lightly up the steps of the stoop, said, ' mother lives here; the plane is dark, but I'll lead you up there." Up one, two, three pair of stairs, we followed our little guide in utter darkness. ' 1 his way,'she said, as she seized our hand. She led us on until she arrived at a door, which she opened and we entered. " Mother,* said our guide, "this gentleman, j when 1 asked him for some cents fur you, wan tad to come to see you ; I have brought him, mother, and now he'll know that I didn't tell him a story." The mother was leaning over a boy of about fourteen, lying on a straw inat tra?s pla-ed upon a chest on one side of the room. The tears were streaming Irotn her eyes and from the.boy's eyes too. There was a cot in another corner of the room, on which , lay two sick children. They moaued?O how painful it was to hear them t There was nei-! ther chair nor table in the room; two large boxes Were there on one of which we took our seat. " Och, sir,!' she said, releasing her arms from the neck of her sick son, " au it's hard to have to send me little girl to beg, but it's harder still to starve wid three childer sick with the ship fever in one room, and not a thing to, give 'em." It was a wretched place; the woman had neither bit nor sup in her room, nor means wherewith to obtain ihem, save the few cents our little guide brought in. They had not tast. ed food that day. A visit to the market and the appearance of a batcher boy with a basket of various kinds of eatables caused the poor mother to weep for joy. And our little guide, God blesaher?clung??but never mind what she did ; she had a good supper that night and plenty nexfday. And, as the ladies have ta ken the caw in hand, we believe the poor fam ily will be placed beyond want. NEWS Sec. BY THE MAILS.
