For Provident, J ZACHARY TAYLOR, OF Louisiana, Subject to the decinioo of the Whig National Convention. 11. J. DRAYJON, ESQ. We copy from the Paris Correspondence ol the Boston Alias the following notice of the progress made by Mr. Ii. J. Drayton, formerly of this city, in the study of vooalizalion at the French Conservatorie. The French Musical Journal announces that not the slightest foreign accent was distinguishable in his enunciation of the French language. "At the expiration of the first two hours, however, I had become nearly surfeited by the most incredible and eccentric flights of the human voice that ever pitched upon my imagination?evolutions that seemed to take in impossibilities as nothing, completely upsetting all manner of bounds to astonishment, and really (spreading such wild and general consternation among, the loose crotchets that my enthusiasm already'began to settle down into a kind ol ethargic indifference to anything that might feel disposed to follow. From tbis state ol --oyster-use ecsiacy," i was sud'lenly aroused by one of those clear full bursts of vocal power, which, for the moment, can never fail to thrill the stoutest audience to a mute inaction. The pupil now upon the scene was none other than Mr. H. J. Drayton, of Philadelphia, of whom the American press has so often spoken in high terms of praise, and though 1 was no less surprised than proud at his success, it was with difficulty I could realize that so brief a space as some few months back could have accomplished that degree of proficiency which marked i his success. The piece selected for his execution was, however, too tame in character to , admit of fexhibiting any great lours of vocal force, in which Mr. D. (whom I have heard , since in private), particularly excels ; and, but ' for the deep, rich volumes of melody that continued to pour out, from the mellowest to the i full, proud vibrations of his most wonderful , basso cantantc, filling the theatre until its cuurse ' was broken by a ringing round of "bravos," I i could almost have smiled at the boldness with ' which he had taken so formidable a stand ' amongst contendents whose strength had been the result of years of unremitted study. Added to this natural confience, the fine stature and person of Mr. Drayton, and above all his spirited conception and appreciation of the part he is performing, are such as would render his talents as au artiste of a most high and valuable order." Old Zach and the Illinois Democracy. The Morgan, Illinois, Journal assures us that a | caucus of the Democratic members of the late Illinois Constitution Convention decided to no Iminate the old Hero lor the Presidency, that they were of opinion that any opposition to him in Illinois would be disastrous to itself.? Huzza lor old Rough and Ready I rr>- Cell. Tavlnr hl? rereiweit fmir Si?i? ' nominations for the Presidency?Iowa, Illinois, Maryland, and Georgia: The Albany Atlas, now that Mr. Wrignt is out of the way, advocates the selection by the Democratic party of Mr. Benton for the Presidency. He will do as well as any other man to be distanced by old Buena Vista. YtrfcATAtt. We have dates front this doom ed peninsula to the 17th of August. The war of the races was not at an end. It raged in all : its violence. The Indians only needed arms and ammunition to extirpate the whites. CO- Tbe Yellow Fever killed 576 persons in New Orleans the week ending the 5th instant, 9 a. m. This is worse than any of our battles with the Mexicans, and yet the people of New Orleans deny the contagiousness of this fell disease! <Tj* The Charleston Courier publishes a list * of all the graduates of the South Carolina Col lege from its foundation to the present year. It i occupies nearly three columns of closly printed 1 matter. Great names are among them. The first graduate is Judge Crenshaw, whose death is announced in another paragraph. 09- Mr. Marcy has asked Captain Little, of AJton, Illinois, to come on with his mounted company, but it is too late. They are disbanded, though tbe captain is trying to get them together again. Mr. Dillon had a very cool reception in Pitts, bvrg. The people remembered his desertion of Pennsylvania laboring interests. He may as well go home, for the Pennaylvanians will never again believe in Polk, Dallas, and Buchanan. The Democrats of Union county, Pa., have declared in favor of old Zach for President.? Good?if they will stick to it! On the opening of the criminal court in N. Orleans on the 3d instant, informations were iled against fifty-six persons for assault and lattery, and nineteen for larceny. High times, h-se, in the midst of the epidemic! An orphan girl aged 1G years, ran away on he 2d insl. in N. O.from the house of her grandnother, because the latter wished to marry a nan she didn't like. The girl was right. Our opponents say, we have no principles. ,s principles in their vocabulary are synonylous with rffiru, they are right! The New Orleans Delta says that the plan f the war has changed, that Gen. Taylor is ike left upon his camp stool, and his troops at to open the road from Vera Cruz to Mexil\e Whigs of Missouri are resolved to reem their State from Benton and they intend do it in the only way that it can be done? tder the flag of old Rough and Ready. Mr. Ellsworth, our late Commissioner of tents, is rousing up the people of Indiana d Illinois to build a railroad from Lafayette, , to Springfield, HI. They are moving in t matter as become men of energy. V TWENTY-FIVE DAYS LATER FROM SANTA FE. t Later from Chihuahua?Murder of Mr. Jan Jlull?Robbery?Col. tVillock'i Battalion Prog rat of the U. 8.

It will . seen, that he brings intelligence of the murd of one of the best citizens of our Slate. V 1 annex his letter: iKDircaoxncc, Sept. 1, 1847 The arrival of Mr. Aubry, direct from Sac Fe, puts into my bands some news that w be interesting to your readers, and which hasten to communicate. Mr. Aubry left Sac Fe on the 28th of July, accompanied by hf | Barnum, of Baltimore, (direct from Chihc bus.) Capt. McKinney'a company of volu leers from Monroe county, and a train of sixi five United States wagons, under the char of Mr. King. Through Mr. Barnum, Mr. Aubry has ne1 from Chihuahua to the 3d of July. On I 23d of June, Mr. James Aull, the partner . the late Colonel S. C. Owens, in an extensi mercantile business, was killed by four Me: . caus. They entered his store at Chihuaht: killed him, and took away $5,000. The a thorilies of the city, and the friends of t deceased, immediately had three of the mi derers arrested, and put in prison, to aw their trial. Mr. Aull's death was not occ sioned by any rising of the mob, but chiel for plunder. Mr. Aull is a gentleman w known in this community, and highly respe ed. His death has spread gloom and consti nation over every one, anu more parliculai at this crisis, in the midst of large commerc transactions, and so soon after the death Colonel Owens. ,JThe persons and properly of American ci zens generally, were respected at Chihuahc though none were permitted to leave the cit except neutrals, who could briDg away thi means by paying a duty of 6 per cent. W. Barnum obtained his nasstiort hv nreiemtii to be an Irishman. Gov. Annijo, on his way to Albuquerqt to visit his family, was arrested at Chihuahu and kept within the limits of that city. He said to have expressed great satisfaction at tl result of the battle of Sacramento. No merchandise of any description w suffered to come into New Mexico by t southern route. In New Mexico, the territorial election w to have taken place on the 1st or 2d Mond of August. Consul Alvarez, Capt. Angnt and Mr. Kirkland, of St. Louis, were can dates for the Legislature. The murderers ol Brown and others, wt on trial, and seven of them would certainly convicted. Colonel Willock's battalion of volumes their lime having expired, were ordered leave Taos and return to Santa Fe. Tweni five citizens remained, and were determin to erect fortifications for their defence. A lar number of the women of Taos had determin to follow our army, and not to return to thi homes until their husbands would consent become friendly to the United States. An insurrection had, a short time previot commenced, but it was nipped in the bu and the leuders, terrified at the numbers se out in opposition to them, fled precipitately the mountains.

Meiers. Editob :?In your paper of the 12th ins'1 n editorial paragraph, noticing the recent grot, iletion of our soil by a British armed party from e Red riser settlement, who proceeded to apprehend u deserters, who ha I taken refuge at one of the tra.

Thia Com ny claim for themselves a right, under a grant from ) British government, to trade for furs as high up the Grand Forks of Red river, some forty or fifty inflict summiry punuhment upon any American, 10 purchase skins of any kilM within their territoI limits. It is for an allodged offence of this kind it the American citizen referred to in your paper having been held to bail, ia still in a liond of?100 tling to make his appearance before the Hudson iy Company's court in November next.

The Sioux Indiana in this vicinity are suffering udfully from sickness, brought on, in a great meare, by a want of proper food. The government lered their annuities to be stopped, because a fow their number wera engaged in the late Winnabsgo issacre, and no provisions having been issued to se poor creature#, they have been obliged to subt on root* and green corn. Tbe consequence is, it cholera morbus has carried off sixty or seventy ihin a month past, and many more are still tick nto death." How magnanimous in the rulers of s great nation, to visit upon the whole bands ol lians such punishments, simply because a few ung men have been guilty of crimes! What a iking illustration of the wisdom and beautiful workis of our present system of Indian government! If )roper person held tho office of Commissioner of dian Affairs in lieu of tbe present incumbent, who at best, but a brawling politician, and utterly igrant of the duties of his office, think you that such earful smount of suffering would have been heapupon innocent beads!

They have buili also, a town, called " If inter Quarteri," wbicl already contains a population of some sevei thousand souls. This town is entirely picket* in. It is represented, that the Mormons ar on friendly terms with the Indians, and rare! molest them, although they are accused c occasionally stealing cattle. Immense herds of Buffalo were seen on th plains, and crossing the Missouri, at the moutl of a stream called Stillwater. The Union of Saturday night admits- tha the "No Mexican Territory" is not Whig poli cy, is not the policy of the Whig parly. Thi is all we care about.

Careless Driving. We hive often recorde< instances in which persons have barely escapet front being run over by the carelessness o driving various vehicles. This rooming, as ; lady was passing along on the stone walk a Gadsby's corner, she came within an ace o being run over by the carelessness of the drive of & milk carl. The lady would undottbledlj have been much injured had not a gentlemat rescutd her. Certainly something ought to hi done to these "careless drivers." Attention Authorities. We have though that it is a violation of law, to build frame o wood tenements within twenty feet of an; brick building. Now if we have thought righ we hare several complaints to make. Wi have been told that, near the corner of 4J st. and l'a. avenue, in the rear of Delany's Druj Store, is an old rickety wooden stable, recentl] built, the loft of which is filled with hay ; also there nre several old concerns, which, wen they to take fire, would be the cause of the losi of much valuable properly, being within tei feet of brick buildings. The alley in this vi cinitv is also much comrtlained of. their beint stench enough arising therefrom to giro per sons the yellow ferer. We do hope that ou authorities will look to the health of our eiti zeos, and the safety of their property.
