TELEGRAPH._ Speaking in Season.—One of the dele gates (Parker JlcCobb,) chosen by the Tories to attend their Convention at Au gusta, is.a decided friend of llcnry Clay, and openly avows his preference for him, declaring that h’c will give him his vote for the Presidency. The Van Burenites here begin to think, that with all their hurraing for little Matty, they have after nil been bar king up the wrung tree. \Jl(l. “A Mother.—There is something in sickness that breaks down the pride of manhood; that softens the heart and brings it back to feelingSjOf infancy. Who that has suffered even in advanced life, in sickness and despondency,who that has been pinned in a weary bed in the neglect and loneli ness of a foreign land, but thought of the mother ‘that looked on his childhood,’ that smoothed his pillow and administered to his helplessness? O there is an endearing tenderness in the love of a mother to her sdn that transcends all other affections of the heart. It is neither to be chilled by danger, nor weakened by worthlessness, or stilled by ingratitude. She will sacri fice every comfort to his convenience, she will surrender every pleasure to his en joyment; she will glory in his tamo, and exult in his prosperity, and, if adversity overtake him, he will be dearer to her by misfortune ; and if disgrace settle upon his najae, she will love and cherish him, and ifall the world cast him off she will be all the world to him. The Prince de Joinville.—A circum stance occurred on the Prince’s arrival at Washington, which must have furnished him and his suite with some merriment, lie had arrived in the city perfectly incog. and in a dress “marvellously ill-favored.” With his friends in a similar costume, he . called at Gadsby’s for “bed and board.”— The person to whom tho party applied, af ter surveying them from head to foot and not conceiving a very exalted opinion of their pccuniousiltj, told them tlieto was no room in the Hotel. They next went to Brown’s Hotel, where they were similarly scrutinized, but were informed there were only two rooms, in the garret unoccupied. As the travelers were tired, they accep ted of this elevated dormitory, rather than go farther. The bar keeper presented the book as usual, for the names of the vistors, and when the Prince signed with all his ti tles kc. kc. kc. the man in a great flurry rang the bell, called Mr B. ordered the best chamber to be immediately prepared for the! Royal traveler!—This must have recalled to the mind of the Prince a similar one in the amusing adventures of Guzman il'Alfarncho, in which the hero stops at a fashionable hotel where he had been very badly received some time before on ac count of his shabby appearance: but when he called in an elegant carriage and step ped in habited in brilliant style, there was no end to the fatiguing splendor of his re ception.

"Extraordinary instance of gambling.— It is well known upon the western waters, that firemen and other hands employed up on the boats spend much of their idle time in playing cards. Of the passion for gam ing, thus excited, an instance has been narrated to us upon the most credible au thority, which compasses the highest wrought fictions of the gambler’s fate. A colored fireman, on board a steam boat running between this and New Orleans, had lost all his money at poker with his companions. lie then staked his clothing, and being still unfortunate, pledged his own freedom for a small amount, losing this the bets were doubled, and- lie finally, at one desperate hazard, ventured his full value ns a sluve, and laid down his free papers to represent the slave. lie lost, suffered his certificates to be destroyed,and was actually sold by the winner to a slave dealer, who hesitated not to tako him at a small discount upon his assessed value.— When last heard of by one who knows-him, and who informed us of the fact, that lie was still paying in servitude tho penalty of his criminal folly.— [Cincinnati Express. ‘No other Journal has the News.’— A. country paper says under this head, ‘YV« stop the press to announce the important intelligence that we have no more paper, and that our ink is all out.

THE NEW LAND LAW. This new law which originated from the suggestion ofGov. Kent in his message to the legislature, was always a favorite plan of his ior developing the resources of our State. As long ago as 1830, when lie was a member oftlie Legislature ho advo cated this policy, in opposition to the views of the then dominant Jackson party. They considered these unsettled lands, merely as a source ot revenue, and wished to sell them out to any one, who would give the most money for them ; in this way permit ting them to fall into the hands of specula tors who would demand exhorbant prices of actual settlers. Mr. Kent opposed this, and used the following language: “When, Sir, as a legislator of the State of Maine, I cast my eye over these unfelled forests, ready for the axe of the pioneer Jof civilization. I cannot bring myself to the cool calculation of their market value, and rest contented if they sell well. In my opinion, sir, the first great object which we should have in view in all our legisla tion, is the settlement of those lands. The great point to which all our acts should tend, to present inducements to the hardy yeomanry of our land to migrate to these sections—so that in a few years the desert may become a fruitful field—and where now stands the native unsubdued forest, our eyes may be blessed with the sight of a free, enterprising industrious, ynnkec popu lation, with their churches and school hous es. 1 deprecate tlio policy, sir, which re gards these lauds as_an appendage to the Treasury department—which views them only as a source of revenue—which, is willing to sell them in largo tracts to indi vidual' speculators, if a few dollars can thereby be placed in our coders, although by these very sacrifices (I will not call them sales) the settlement will be retarded for years, and the suffering tenants may mourn in dust and ashes the hard hearted policy which has placed not merely themselves but their towns, under the control of an ab sent landlord.” The settlement of the Aroostook would have advanced much more rapidly, had the appropriation for the Road been made, which the Wh igs proposed. The Loco Focosofthe Senate who were in a majori ty voted it down, hut for this they will meet their reward, if any of them present themselves as candidates for the suffrages of the people, at the next September elec tion.

He recommends the adoption of the general banking law of New York, and also the suspension of the law suppressing small hills. He touches on the abolition and temperance subjects with a moderate and conciliatory tone, and throws out some hints which are well worthy the attention of both the .friends and the foes of these movements. He exults considerably al his re-election, under ‘the general state ol things, andjthe great national (juestions be fore the people.’ Isaac Ilill states iri his annual message that ho shall not be a candidate for Govern or of New Hampshire next year.

The diffi culties on the Canadian frontier, will not tend to hasten an amicable adjustment ol this long-standing quarrel. It ought to have been, and might have been settled years ago. The [following article from the Portland Advertiser, goes to show that we may find it difficult to make as good terms with John Bull as has been anticipated: “We see by extracts from the London Journals, the Times and other British pa pers, that all the movements of this State jw,.j^ m~r m rii mi iml mmiMim i upon the Boundary question are closely watched. Our resolves, the message ol our Governor, the correspondence on this subject are all published at great lengtli in the metropolitan papers. Indeed the Brit ish people are giving this subject an atten tion they never before gave it, and it seems to be made in England, as much a matter of importance, as if the Eastern empire was at stake. In connection with this awakened atten tion to the N. E. Boundary, wo cannot but remark upon the large standing army the British are notv placing in the Canadas, u number it is said, 15,000 strong among whom are the Coldstream and Household Guards, said to be the picked troops ol tlio world. McKenzie’s (N. \.) Gazette says, though we have not seen the state ment elsewhere, that the British are de barking their large pieces of ordnance at Quebec to lake to Mndawaska, for the pm pose of throwing up a strong fortifica tion in the wilderness there. Whatever may he the purposes of Gicat Britain in thus increasing its standing ar my upon this continent, it becomes us to do our duty to ourselves, and to demand justico and protection from the Federal Government. This slate has been horribly neglected upon this matter, and since the days of Gov. Lincoln till this time, ns now set forth by Gov. Kent, her interests have not been urged with that singleness and discretion that they ought.—Let us keep our eyes fixed upon the movements of England. Let us make plain our case. Let us point out to the Federal Govern ment its doty, and demand the execution of it. We feel assured that under the present vigorous pilot at the helm of State, Maine will not lie forgotten or betrayed.” ---- r roni me iiociiesier Jii'inocrnt, Monday. There were gatherings of men, with ap parently hostile intentions on Wcdn. and End. night, near Lewiston. Their threat ened object was the burning of the Niaga ra and Quccnston.

H s Excellency tho Earl of Durham lias ordered instructions to be issued for tho present, that the improvements in the houses which he has engaged in town, shall be discontinued. Various minors are in circulation in consequence but none that are general aretruc. Lord Durham has de manded tho delivery to tho British authori ties of the prisoners concerned in the bur ning of Sir Robert Peel, and if not com plied with by the American Government, he will take upon himself the responsibili ty, as ho lias the power of declaring war between Great Britain and tbe United States, and will proceed at once to Eng land in a ship of war.—[Herald. J he tono ol the hah Durham s replies I to the two congratulatory addresses, one from the French Canadians hi this city and the other from the Wesleyan clergy, are remarkable for (heir appropriate lan guage to persons ditleririg so much from each other. “Justice towards the guilty and mercy towards the misguided,” will result in the restoration of internal trail qnility, and tlie blessing of peace,while an indiscriminate gaol delivery would have led to far other consequences. We understand one of French deputation interceded tor pardon for 1)is son, at present confined for High Treason, and that His Lordship said that if the young man was innocent, lie would be liberated, hut if he was found guilty, he would certainly be punished. The idea of punishment is revolting, but is necessary that it be inflicted as a warn ing to evil doers, and'as an encourage ment to those that do well. “He that sparoth the rod hateth the child,” is as true in politics as in the rearing of chil dren.

A blockading force was olf Tampico and tho Bras ses do St. Jago, when tho Natchez sailed from those places.

Mr W. rc-m.irked that it was not his intention to make an argument, but to Ftate the American side of the questimi. In giving the details, he occupied nearly two hours.— llis statements throughout, were fortified by official docu ments and maps. It was a most lucid view of the whole question, lie expressed his opinion that Maine would not be satisfied with any reference which was not based upon the treaty of 1783, end his regret at observing that there was a disposition on the part of the Executive, to vary from the stipulations contained in that treaty. At the request of Mr. Buchanan, the subject was laid on tlu? table till Friday or Saturday, when, it was pre sumed. he would reply to Mr. \\ i bstcr.

The measures taken are therefore calm and deliberate, and the debates are likewise free from heat and ill-temper. Another Steamboat Burnt.—The steam boat Conqueror [ was burnt at the Maysville wharf,fifteen days since,at about one o’clock in the morning.
