Federal and State governments to each other; and
?o true is this principle, that notwithstanding' this
movement in refereuce to Tesas, it eeeiris not to be
denied by those who are advocating the measure;
for they place the foundation of their procecdinga
in the aaeuinptlou that we have no right or title to
the territory la question.
The question of our title we will not again discuss,
as it can result in no practical good, and inched it
would be humiliating to do so, after so much has
been said in reference to it. "The argument is ex
hausied." Those who now deny our claim would
continue to do so, were it placed before them in
characters written with a sunbeam. It stands in
the way of the attainment of their darling object in
respect to slavery, and to deny it affords the only
pretext which can he found for uvoiding the stipulations
of the compact under which Texas became
a member of the Confederacy, Public faith is to
be sacrificed at the shrine of au unhallowed fanaticism,
and, in the opinions of some occupying prominent
positions in the councils of the country, the
ConatHution itself should be made to yield to a morbid
philanthrophy, originating and existing only
in the heated imaginations of partisan zealots.
Texas can never be guided by such influences. She
will never, it is hoped, debase herself in the eyes ol
her sittsr States of the South, by giving her assent to
measures so mauifrstly intended to strike a blow at
their most vital interest; and she regards the at

attributes of sovereignty for a connexion

which might seem by poesibiiity to contemplate
a collision with any of ite constituted authorlies;
while, on the other baud, a just sense of what
ta due to ouraelvea will aot permit ue to eubjnit to
outrages and wrong from any quarter. Mo long
ae we were permitted tocherieh the hope, that there
existed no bxed or premeditated design to deprive
ua of our acknowledged and essential rights, our
language waa that of entreaty and aupplicatiou?
out course that of forbearance and inoileraliou; but
with the uudeuiable evidence now before ua of a
settled determination to despoil ua, regardless ol
coinpacta and constitutional guarantees, of at least
one-third of our territory?a continuance of such
language and such a courae would be degradation
a nil shame
Difficult and einharraaaing, then, aa the question
undoubtedly is, and however fraught its contentplaliou
with painful solicitude, we have left ua no
thoice but to meet it. It must he met boldly, and
fearlessly and determinedly. Not by further supplication
or discussion with Federal authorities;
not by renewed appeals to their generosity and
sympathy; not by a longer reliance on the delusive
hope, that justice will yet be extended to us;
but by action?manly and determined action?on
our part, by a prompt assertion of our rights and a
practical maintenance of them with all the means
we can command, "at alt liazuidt and to Hit luit
Atler deeply, and I trust maturely reflecting' on
tins subject, Willi a mind guidctl by the must anxious
desire intake no step in it which would nut
cuiuiiiand the approbation of my fellow-citizens
and the reflecting portion of those ol our sister States
whose interest iu this matter is strongly ussimilaied
to ours, it is my deliberate und lirm conviction
thut there is now left us but one course consistent
with honor ami a just sense oi what is due to ourselves
as a sovereign community ; and that is, the
immediate adoption by your honorable body, with
perfect unanimity, of such measures as are necessary
for the occupation of Santa Fk, with a force
ample to quell the arrogant and rebellious spirit
now prevailing llierc, ami to enable us to extend
and lirmly establish the jurisdiction and laws ol the
Slate over it.
Should the adoption and unswerving enfurcenjent
of these uieasures lead to a conflict with
those who, by executive authority, are unlawfully
exercising the powers of a government adverse
to our interests within our detiucd and ackuowl
edged limits, there arc none who would regret
that conflict, and the consequences which would
most probably flow from it, more than myself; but
1 should be consoled in the contemplation of its
tearful results by the reflection that it was not a
ditliculty ol our seeking?that every effort on our
part, save that of craven submission to lawless outrage
and insult, bud been employed to avert it; and
confiding 111 the justice of our cause, 1 should fearlessly
meet it, trusting and feeling assured that
Texas would stand exonerated belore the world,
even should that conflict shukc, to the very centre,
the most glorious confederacy upon which the sun
has over shone.
1 am not of the numUer of those who have alteuiptcd
to estimate the value of the Union. I regard
its benefits, when tiicy are administered in
conformity with the spirit and principles of its constitution,
as unappreciable by those who are left in
their undisturbed enjoyment. Hut, when the guarantee*
ol that sacred instrument are set at naught,
or when force shall be resorted to as the legitimate
mode of their interpretation, it will then cease to
be a Union entitled to our reverence, because it
will have ceased to possess the power of extending
equal and mutual benefits to all of its members.
lu view, then, of the unpleasant and extraordinary
position in which we ure placed, and of the
absolute necessity of immediate and decisive action
on our part, 1 recommend that your honorable
body autiiorizc the Executive to raise, with as
little delay as possible, with power to sttpply, at least
two regiments of mounted volunteers tor the eon
templaicd move to and occupancy of Santa Fe.
In making this recommendation, 1 am not uriuiiiidlul
ol the heavy expenses which it will involve,
and the cmbai rassing difficulties which will be presented
in raising the necessary tunds to meet tlicm:
but 1 rely with great confidence on the w isdom of
tlie Legislature in devising some effective means
to meet llie emergency?recollecting that Texas in
a much darker and inure embarrassed period of
her pecuniary resources, prepared to encounter,
and did successfully encounter, a more appalling
It may not be improper, in connexion with this
subject, to remind your honorable body tfiat there
is now lying idle and unprofitably iu the treasury
the sum ol $>34,443 00 which lias been set apart in
accordance with a provision of the constitution as a \
school fund. It is true that this fund cannot be appropriated
to any other object than that for which
it was originally designed. Hut may not its present
shape be changed by converting it into one ol
different and more nrulii.il>!>' cliaim-nr fur tic. nlti

violating any constitutional provision.'
lit my general message to you in December last,
I suggested the plan of converting it by luan or
otherwise into some profitable slock bearing interest,
until it shall be sutlicienl to authorize its uselul
employment in the way designed; being then
convinced, as 1 am now, "that it would be totally
lost if distributed amongst the various counties,
whilst the amount was too inconsiderable to effect
any benefit lal purpose." It is true that, at that
tune, 1 was, lroin the iniperlccl ntlccuon I hud
been able to give to the subject, of the opinion that
such 41 conversion was not authorized from the
terms of tbc constitution, but upon further considc
ration, and a more critical examination of the
phraseology employed, 1 am led to doubt some what
the entire corret tnrss ot the view then entertained
The expression tiial "no law shall ever be made
diverting said fund to any other use than the support
of lice public schools," would probably lie construed
to mean that the value, the essential proper J
ly ol the fund, shall never be applied to any oihci
purpose, and not that the evidences of that value
shall not be changed or converted into other evidences,
equally available and more beneficial to the
ubjects intended to be promoted by it.

I cannot |>< lieve that any ptrty rrspr. tahle lur oHumbert

had heen made founded upon her acknowledged,
right* of territory, to purchase from her that portion
ol it lying north of the thirty-fourth degree of north
latitude, and accompanied with a sufficient guar
an tee that the provisions of the Joint {(('solutions
for annexation in respect to slavery should he observed,
the most respectful consideration would
have heen given to it; and 1 risk but little in saying
that a large majority of our fellow-citizens would
have met such a proposition in the most liberal spirii,
and with a sincere desire to accord every thing reasonable
and just that might have been asked m reference
to it.
1 have deemed it my duty tq call your attention
to this subject, because it may not be inappropriate
lor you, coming directly from the people, to give
an expression of the public sentiment ill regard to
it. Such an expression may have a salutary influence
elsewhere? if not in producing more liberal
and just action towards us, at least in cutting off a
discussion which must l>e fruitless in the aitainincut
of its object. It i" true that this proposition,
so objectionable and offensive,in its terms to us, has
not, so far as we are informed, ehtuined the sanction
of either branch of Congress, and the hope is
still indulged tliut it may receive such modifications
and changes as will make it meritorious and
worthy of our consideration; but w hile we may
(latter ourselves with this reasonable expectation,
you need not be prevented Iroin an expression of
your opinion in relerencc to it, clear and unequivocal,
and it should not, in iny humble judgment,
prevent yuur decided and prompt action in regard
to the course to be pursued in sustaining, in relation
to Santa F<5. the integrity, character, and interest
of the State.
hi my message submitted to you in December
last, 1 used ilie following language: "The Stale
should unquestionably use the necessary means to
cause her laws to be obeyed and respected, icr. I
therefore recommend that the executive be authorized
to st-nd to Santa Fe, if the necessity for doing
so should continue to exist, a military force si//ficient
to enable the civil authorities to execute the
laws of the Stale in that portion of the territory,
without refereuce to any anticipated action of the
Federal Government, or regard to the militury
power of the Cnitcd States stationed at Santa Fe.
1 make this recommendation with more freedom,
because I cannot conceive that a measure of this
character will, or ought to give lise to any disturbance
in our relations with the Federal Government.
The right of Texas to enforce her jurisdiction is
not more perfect in the county of Travis than it is
in the county ol Santa Fe; and ll the employment
ol trie necessary lorce to enable ncr to exercise (bat
right over a refractory |>opulation should produce
a collision with the b1 dcral authorities, the fault
will uot he hers. She will stand exonerated in the
judgment ol just men from nil the fearful consequences
which may result from such a conflict.
In suggesting to the Legislature the propriety of
authorizing the Executive to send a military force
to Santa be, 1 am not unmindful of the increased
pecuniary burdens which the exercise of the authority
will impose upon our present tax-paying
citizens. 1 trust, however, that the necessity of
carrying into e flee I a measure of this sort may y< t
be averted. If the diflicultics encountered in our
efforts to extend the jurisdiction of the State over
thai portion ol her territory have resulted from the
tardiness of action 011 the part of the Federal authorities,
rather thau from a deliberate design to
do us a wrong, (and it may be ascribed to that
cau?c,j wc may stilt encourage tlie hope that a
sense of magnanimity and justice may induce her,
upon being ad\ ised of the course wc have resolved
to pursue, if driven to it, to adopt such measures
as will supersede the necessity of incurring thl-i
expense; but the indulgence of this hope should not
prevent your action upon tin subject? such action
may accelerate, it cannot retard, the issue and adjustment
of tlie question."
1 inust be permitted to express iny regret that
the honorable Legislature did not accord in tinpropriety
of this recommendation, sinec every cir
umslancc which has transpired in connexion with
this matter establishes the tact, that by their concur- j
retire in the views then expressed, and by placing
at the disposal of the Executive a comparatively '
small military force, the difficulties and embarrassmcnts
now surrounding this subject wnul 1 tuv?
terminated, our jurisdiction formally established in
that c ounty; the State saved from a iicavy expense, ;
and the Executive from the unpleasant necessity ol
assembling you at this unfavorable season ol tin

prophetic spirit to foresee, that, hail we then or at

Prussia and Austria.
Wc learn from a telegraphic despatch, date.)
Berlin, August 17th, iu the A'ohwr /.ntung, that
the Austrian invitation for another Diet (Bundestag)
reached Berlin on that day, and that Prussia
la resolved to decline accepting any proposal
in this or in a similar sense.
Berlin letters of theTdlh August statu that it is
now continued by the setni otlnial organs of the
Prussiau government, that the ditferences between
Prussia and Austria, respecting the interpretation
ot the regulations on the subject of the federal fortresses,
(cliirerences which resulted from the refusal
of Austria to allow the Baden troops to pass the
federal Idrtress of Menlz,) are about to he submit'
led to a court of arbitration. Austria has appoint'
ed Bavaria. Nothing is known of the power which
Prucsia is about to appoint.
The Pope is in sad perplexity in consequenrs of
the conviction of six murderers, to whose sentence
oi decapitation he is called upon to alhx his name.
No execution has yet taken place under tiie reign of
Pius IX., owing to his invincible reluctance to sign
a death warrant, lie wishes the miscreants to he
sent to the galleys for the rest of their lives; hut
the gov er nment and the judges are nut inclined to
give way.
According to Intelligence from Athens, of the
7Lit lost., the King is on the eve of taking a journey,
and has appointed a regency, consisting of
the ministers, presided over by the t^ueen. The
Ministers of Justice and the Ulterior have resigned.
Dcliana lias accepted the latter deparunent, with
the interims of Finance and Ecclesiastical AlUns

The Y'ouiche Zrtlurif gives the lollowing account
of the Russian naval force on the9th of August:
The Russian fleet consists, according: to official
reports, of 1 to sail of ships of all sorts and sizes, and
are as follows: lour lincof buttle ships of 120; six of
100 to 110; twenty-six tf 80 to90; eighteen of 70
to 80 guns; thirty frigates; fifty corvettes, brigs,
and ai hooifcrs; and thirty-four steamers. This
naval force is divided into five squadrons; the baltic
squadron consists of about 40,000 tnen, includ
iug artillery; but the paper stutcs that the crews arc
not the very best quality of men, and amongst tlicui
are many Jews from Roland.
Letters from Constantinople, dated the 1st instant,
Btate that the accounts of the insurrection in
.Bulgaria have been much exaggerated, and have
had their chief source in the weak mind of Zi?,
I'uchit of Widdin. It seems that the shepherds of
the district of Lclocozza, in the province of Belgradgik,
had been accustomed to pay their taxes in
money JUCII.OI ui iu nuiu, uui n waa rciuat u uu iiir
last occasion by the Pacha, who caused their sheep
to be seized for their taxes. The enraged shepherds
attacked tlie collectors, and killed eoine of them.
Alarmed at the illegality of tlnir own conduct,
they marched off in a laxly of three hundred to lay
their case before the Pacha, but that functionary,
terrified at their numbers, caused the gates tu be
shut against them.
The Pa'-ha then ordered his troops to charge
them, and many of them were slain. The savage
Boldicry then proceeded to the surrounding villages,
Killing the people and destroying their property,
nud they committed such excesses that the
Pacha was forced to send other troop* against them,
who put a stop to their cruellies. A second deputation
from the shepherds waited upon the Pacha to
represent their sad state to him, but he seized them,
put them in irons, and sent them olf to Constantinople
as chiefs of the insurgents, and represented
thut his province was up In arms. But the real
facts have been laid b fore the Divan, and it is hoped
that the Pacha will not escape punishment for his
gross inisgovcrnxnent, violence, and extortion.
Liverpool Cotton Market.?Tuesday evening,
August 20.?The excitement of a 30,000 bale day in
cotton, (10,000 Ixiught by one house,) has produced
its natural result?a collapse. There is now little |
doing in the staple, and prices have declined a full j
Jd. per 11>.; yet this begets nu life or animation. I
Some say it is puly the commencement of a second j
decline,and others,mure firm, laugh at the chickenlieartcd
policy of sonic holders wlio cry out belorc ,
they are hurt. We think quietness should be the |
course of tilings, for, as we have latterly written, j
until the season is inure advanced, all calculations
of crops are lutile; but it cannot be overwhelming, |
and may be unda^an average. Hales yesterday of j

Mr. Jlemt: I have rrnii a number of your a r tic Irs
about youths, and, while I approve of them, 1 can- I
not help regretting' that so few of our citizens take
an interest in the things you promise. I am yet 1
an apprentice, and have good reason to know that
you arc right in tile descriptions you give of the ;
disadvantages under which apprentice boys latior.
I board in the family of iny master, and 1 have j
great respect for him and thcin. All of tbcin treat j
mc well, and there is g?<Kl (eettas between us. :
Itnt 1 am riot so blind as not to know that my
presence in the house is often an embarrassment.
There arc many things to be talked orer that 1 :
do nut wish to bear, tind that they do not wish mc ,
to hear. The house is not so large as to afford sn i
apartment for each of us, and the kitchen is not a
pleasant place to me. tso what still to do? Why,
simply walk out w hen supper is over. Hut where
am I to walk to? It it true, I am not unac quainted
iu the city, but it is equally true that I do not feel
disjiosed to loiter in the bouses of my friends and
make a com cniencc of them. In the summer time
1 get along pretty well in the streets, in the promiscuous
company I meet with; hut in the wiuter
time 1 have generally kept out of the taverns only
by going into the engine-houses; and, to confess
the truth, I have passed several years pretty much
in this way. 1 have steered pretty clear of scrapes
of all kinds, and so have a good many of the lads I
keep company wim; uui i nave seen me ruin
of a pou t many who would have done well if they
could. They couldn't resist temptation, and I
could; that was the difference between us. Our
chance* were alike. I have many a time thought
tli.il n little care, such a* ytiu recommend, would |
nat e many a youth Irom the downward road. Now,
air, I advise you to go ahead in this matter. In a
little w hile 1 will ? hangc the position of an apprentice
for that of a journeyman, when 1 will he able
to pay for my board in a good boarding-house,
where I shall enjoy the accommodations of a sit- ,
ting-room, fire, lights, and all other thing* I have j
in my youth desired in vain; but there are many j
behind me who have a critical road lo pass, and I ;
wish you to help them over it. It is astonishing
bow soon men can forget the wants ofboyhuod.and
how little llay seem to care whether toys grow up
to become good mcnit>cre of society, or convicts in
the penitentiary. I believe the wishes of most of
our Imys would lend ihetn to do ri?'it, and that
your plan will enable them to act out their withe*.
So go abend. Yours, 4lc.,
We would say to "One of the Boys" that w-e shall '
be proud to greet him as nns of the men to engage J
tit the reform we nre urging our citiiens to adopt. |
lie says truly that men soon forget the wants of I
boyhood, and its trials and temptation*. Tho eve- '
ning reading rooms of which we advise the cwtablishmcnt
arc in our opinion i -oientisl to the welfare
of our youth and the peace of our city; and yet,
strange to te||, but lew have tunc lo think of Ihetn.
Tliey will, however, be yet established, and those
who participate in the work will soon be honored
by the thousands rescued by then, from lives of degradation
and infamy.
If the business iro n of cur city, the merchants
riiiil inrrhnnii * arc u aWintv fur tlnur finfinrrl
wealthy and rcapectable lo take the had in thia
matter, they will wait in vain. We know of none
aufliciently rrapeclal'le to effect it but mich a* are
active huaincaa men, and wc would urge them to
begin at once.
'I'm wav or thi k i* a little dog,
yet big enough to know what r?"d behaviour ia. In
fact, we doubt that lie will ever grow any larger
than he ia, for Jack ia not very young. He ia a
good-looking dog too, and baa a eober, ecdatc, aelfpnaaraaed
countenance, lie naually aita upright,
nenr the curb-atone, beneath the aliadc of an old
>>y( mnorr, and em vrya with recmingly olnervant
eyea every paa*< r-hy. The other day Jack looked
out upon all who paaaed, and when a big brown
dog appeared dlapoaed to make hia acquaintance,
Jo< k nobbed him off; and then a little boy put
hi* hoop around Jack'* neck, and he leaped out of
it, and *<rmrd to wonder why people would trifle
ao, a* he pee* iahly rrauined hia place ; and th' n
(here came by meti ami t?. y* of all eolora, and atill
Jack aat in philosophic ailcncc, wondering why
jieople would lie troubled and excited In a world
that would apin round juat aa faat aud aa well if they
would all keep cool and quirt. Hot In the mtdat ot
these reflections there rame lrefore .lai k an apparition
that around all hia irr a poor, dirty, ragged,
neglected-looking t>oy. Jark wag itvenrcd to
fury, and apraug forlii with yelling rage, and
only refrained from tearing the boy to piecea
through fear of a queer-looking club ha bore, The
boy passed on, and Jack returned to hit accustomed
cat, but with a shake of the head which seemed to
ay, "I'd like to see any more of that aort of folks
about here!" W e were some what astonished at Jack;
but when we remembered through how many centuries
he aud his ancestry had livud in close communion
with the human family, we thought we
could And it in our heart to forgive him,
Pl-blic Schools.?We observe that at a late meeting
of the Trustees of Public Schools, a motion was
made to elevate the school taught by Mr. Kills, on
bth street, to a higher grade, and to increase the
compensation of the teacher. We know of no proposition
that would accord more fully with the
views of all of our citizens who have taken the trouble
to inquire into the subject. A better conducted
school wo are sure we have never seen, nor a teacher
of higher skill or industry.
The Puintihs or Wsshisoto!*.?A meeting of
the journeymen wai held in Washington on Saturday
evening lut, at which it was recommended
to increase the wages now received about 20 per
cent.; and that this measureb? effected deliberately,
and with due reference to the interests of all peraona
now engaged in thia buaineaa, either aa journeymen
or employera. The action was only adviaory,
and will be further considered by the Typographical
A committee waa appointed to draft a memorial
to Congreas, to be signed by the printers, asking
the abolition of the contract system.
Kelativc to this subject, we have only to auy that
we desire to see the highest practicable rate of
wages paid for labor, and that it is our experience
thai the interests of the employers and the employed
lie together in the matter. The only fear with us
ever is, that asking too much, or proceeding too
precipitately in the prosecution of novel measure*,
inny do injury rather than good. From the character
of the printers of our city, antl from the temper
now evinced by them, we hope for better things,
however; uud in this hope we wish them success.
Canal Navigation.?A miniature Btcaml>oat,
forty-four inches long, was exhibited on the ca,nal,
near 7th street, yesterday afternoon, it has been
patented by the inventor, Mr. Alexander Bord, of
Philadelphia. Ho far aa an experiment upon so
small a scale can test the principle, we should pronounce
this invention successful. The boat is propelled
by a scui! most ingeniously contrived beneath
the stern, and from which no wash is apparent.
This last item is important, as the invention
has been made with reference to canal navigation.
We arc informed (hut a boat forty feet long, made
after this model, is in use upon the Delaware, and
inn I. one .iai; |?V ion* ID .IU? innng uimc id. udc
upon the Rappahannock. On the latter the machinery
will occupy twenty feet, leaving forty feet
clear ; yet the draft will he but twenty-four inches
well loaded.
It was asserted yesterday that this little model
could run five miles an hour, anil that larger ones
would greatly exceed this rate.
As we believe steam power has not heretofore been
successfully applied to canal navigation, wc look
with hope to each etlbrt that is made.
Mb. Smith.?A gentleman who,from his appearance,
wc should take to be from the country, was
yesterday making inquiry along the streets for the
residence] of Mr. John Smith, and appeared to be
much contused by the queer responses made to his
inquiry. Polite people smiled, aud didn't know;
rough folks asked which 'on em; the darkie.f
grinned their ivories hare; and practical jokers
sent the gentleman to the wrong house. We do
not know, however, whether the veritable John has
been discovered or not.
Th* National Monc.mknt.?This noble structure
is progrcsi-ing slowly but well. A number of
the stones presented have been inserted in their
places, and appeared to great advantage. That offered
by the mechanics of Philadelphia, which is,
in our opinion, the moat beautiful of them all, 1ms
just been elevated to its prominent position.
Wc regret to have to announce an act of vandalism
that has excited to a high degree tbc indignation
of the people of our city. It was perpetrated
on Sunday last. We allude to the defacing of the
beautifully sculptured stone picscuteil by tli? bt??o
of South Carolina. This stone is adorned by the
coat of arms of that State. The beads are broken
off the male and female figures, and the trump of
fame, hold by an angel above these figures, is also
Orders were yesterday given for the restoration
of this work, by deepening the engraving, and the
original appearance will be made perfect, and the
stone soon elevated to the place it is designed to occupy;
but the bate and watilou act of the miscreant
who thus gratified the vilest impulse of his nature
cannot so rasily be obliterated. W c yet hope tliat
he may be discovered, and made to suffer the utmost
rigor of the law; and, if he be capable of feeling
it, the execration and contcmplof every honorable

that the I'nilcd Slate* Mail SteamcXEStfHHl

that their arrangeinents arc now complete
ir sending passengers through from New York to
lan Franc if eo and back.
In the first attempts of this company to meet the
cants ol travel to California, by providing ship* on
be Pacific, in connexion with their ships from New
Vork to Chagres, they were prevailed upon, at the
argent solicitation ot the great number tben desiraua
to go out, to sell tickets fir through passages
from Panama in advance, for their ships then going
round. This was done froui a desire to accom
uiodatc those who could procure passages in no
other quarter, Bin! by which, whatever might be
iVv- .l.ifniim-, tUev would reach San Francisco
Sooner than tiy any Olliei nnC. vsivircu
cullies, and the prevalence of fever at Rio .lan<-iro
at the time, prevented their ships from reaching
Panama as soon as was anticipated, and caused sictr
lit ion at (he Isthmus, which was increas. d l"* the
iinpalirncc of the pass, ngers in going forward,
against the adticcof the company, at an earlier
ila v than the ships could possibly i eu< h Panama.
These interruption# art-now all removed Three
if the four *liip* of lire company, intended for the
P.t. di, eervii c, have arrived at Panama, and seve
-al of them have performed trips to Sau Francisco
