Cuba Agaiu 1
The late disastrous expedition to Cuba has
entailed upon ail who have not united in de
nouncing it as a piratical expedition all the ilia
of which a want of succett haa, throughout the
history of the world, been deemed deserving,
and the desire every where appears to be man
ifested by each virtuous and indignant repu 1
ean to prove his holy horror and sentiment* of
humanity to have been most excruciaUngly
excited by the lawless band of Americans and
others who desecrated with unhallowed foot
prints the sacred soil of Cuba.
Could any counsel of ours have influenced
these men, gladly would we have restrained
them in their perilous adventure; but, however
hopeless their cause, cither before or after, we
could never denounce them to their Spanish
captors, nor to the world. There is no room to
doubt that they believed not only that the spirit
of revolution was rife in Cuba, but that various
efforts had been made by the Creoles to effect
their desired object. Is this denied?
The National Intelligencer of this morning
quotes from the New Orleans Delta, of July
22d, (for the purpose of rebuking, and proving
fraudulent purposes upon its editors,) certain
accounts of Cuban insurrectionary movements,
wherein it was announced that the revolution
had commenced, that a battle had been fought,
that the patriots were triumphant, and more
to the same effect. Whether the Delta did or
did not credit these reports, we do not know;
but we do know that on the 28th of July, (six
days later,) the Intelligencer itself stated that its
editors had, on the preceding evening, seen and
conversed with a gentleman direct from Havana,
who, having been a passenger in the steamer
Isabel as far as Charleston, had made the trip
from Cuba to this city in leet than six days.
This gentleman stated that Havana was tilled
with rumors of a revolt against the Government
in the eastern part of the island, which many
persons supposed to bo of a serious nature.
Among these reports, it was further stated, was
one that at Puerto Principe three companies of
the regiment of Cantabria had thrown down
their arms and gone over to the Creole insur
gents ; and that the remainder of the regiment
had been publicly disbanded at Havana.
The Intelligencer, though apparently relying
upon this statement, appends an account from
the " Oaceta de la Habana," relating the same
occurrences, though greatly diminishing their
That both the journals we have named may
have been misled is possible; but that one or
both intended deception is not to us apparent.
At the present moment the statement of Lt.
Van Vechten is attracting much attention.
That this statement is inaccurate in important
facts, and that its writer ventures upon very
absurd arguments and conclusions, we think is
quite obviouB to any one who reads with atten
tion. Our first impression on perusing the let
ter was, that if the writer had received his life
and liberty on condition that he would sign and
defend as his own a certain letter, this is such
a letter as would be presented to him. The
New York Sun remarks :
" What he says regarding the character and
motives of the expedition, places him in no en
viable light before the world. He undoubtedly
feels grateful to the Captain General for his life
and liberty, but still the style in which he speaks
of the gallant Crittenden and his companions,
however pleasing it may be to the Spanish au
thorities and their friends in this'country, will
only excite contempt for the writer in every
manly American breast.
" Mr. Van Vechten alludes to the sale of
Cuban bonds in New Orleans, and of these one
paper states that Mr. Van V. purchased or ob
tained to the amount of $10,000. If this be so
he has made a bad speculation. He also speaks
of having been deceived by Mr. Sigur of New
Orleans. We rather think that Mr. S. will con
sider that be was miserably deceived in Mr.
Van Vechten ; for if we have learned to judge
correctly of Mr. Sigur's character, we feel cer
tain that he would scorn to employ the services
of such a man as Mr. Van Vechten confesses
himself to be. We do not know Mr. Sigur
otherwise than through the testimony of his
fellow-citizens of New Orleans, and according
to the general opinion there, a more high
minded and honorable man is not in New Or
" Mr. Sigur is a man who despises all mean
and deceptive conduot, and unless he should
come forward nad confess, after the style of
Mr. Van Vechten, that he is not the honorable
and proud-spirited man which he has been es
teemed, we will not believe that he has been
actuated by the mean, avaricious motives as
cribed to him. But Mr. Sigur can and will
defend his own character; and he will show,
we doubt not, that he cannot be degraded by
the statements of men over-gratcftil that they
have been allowed to return to the United
States to serve the ends and interests of Ilaynau
Concha and the hateful Government he repre
"We have reason to suspect that Mr. Van
Vechten's skill in composition would hardly
enable him to prepare a document like the
above for the press. It would interest the pub
lic to know if he had any assistance, and whose.
Since the account was published we have heard
more than one person remark that Mr. Van
V.'s statement about Gen. Lopei applying * a
red raw-hide' to the men, to make them fire
quicker, staggered their confidence in the nar
rative. Had Lopez dared to apply a raw-hide
to any American in the party, he would not i
have lived five minutes after."
Tcxas Cmpitohs.?Of the meeting yesterday
we find no regular report this morning; but
learn, in addition to what we yesterday stated,
that the debate on General Hamilton's resolu
tions continued in an exciting strain. Mr. 1
Houston, of Delaware, stated that the committee j
had presented their resolutions simply as sug
gestions for the creditors, without claiming for
for them any peculiar merit, but as a basis for
action. They however, together with mime
rous otheT propositions, were laid on the table, |
and the meeting adjourned Hit, without I
effecting any thing definite. It is understood j
that the creditors will rely upon Congress to j
adjudicate matters between them and Texas.
Tub pMswmwT awi> his Surra.?We learn
from food authority that the President of the
United SUtee and Secretaries Conrad and Stu
art are expected to return to this eity by Run
r r*# Harder.
The Philadelphia and Baltimore papers con
tain very ample a?i particular aocounta of this
air, but nearly their whole tenor appear* to
have been conveyed by the statement* we have
already giren. The death of the elder Mr.
Oorsuch, the severe wounding of his son and
injury to his other companions, are the acts
that have so intensely excited the publio mind
in Pennsylvania and Maryland. These acts
were committed by a party of negroes, (and
none others,) oombined for the purpose of pre
venting the arrest of two slaves belonging to
Mr. Oorsuch. If there was the least appear
ance of tardiness on the part of the authorities
a people ot Pennsylvania to cause the arrest
and punishment of the violators of law, we
should look upon the affair as possessing in
terest of a grave national character. But this j
is not the case. Every thing is being done
that can be toward apprehending and bringing
to punishment the offenders; and we believe
the precedent will not prove such an to give
encouragement to the future resistance of law
The Philadelphia Bulletin of yesterday even
?!u?U5?ot?mporarie8 of the daily press unite
without distinction of party, in condemning the
atrocious outrage at Christiana, on Thursday,
ine general testimony, however, is that the
whites of the neighborhood, though they unan
imously refused to assist the slave owner in any
way, did not incite the negroes to riot."
The jury of the coroner are asserted by some,
however, to be sympathizers with the negroes.
The following is the minute of their doings:
"A coroner's inquest was held by Joseph D
Powell, esq., on the body of Edward Gorsuch!
who returned a verdiot, the substance of which
is as follows:
" Upon the affirmation of Geo. Whitaon, John
Rowland, Osborne Dare, Hiram Kennard, Sam'l

Knott, Johni Ellis, Wm. Millhouse, Joseph Rich

the said deceased came to his death, do sav

of the 11th inst., the neighborhood was thrown
into an excitement by the above deceased, and
some five or six persons in company with him

sons living in said Gap, W the brick mill,
about 4 o clock in the morning, for the purpose of
arresting some fugitive slaves, as they alleged

Appointment.?We see it stated that the
California Land Commissioners have conferred
the position of Secretary to the Board on Dr.
Charles W. Davis, a gentleman who served with
great credit to himself on General Wool's staff
in Mexico. Dr. Davis is a ripe Spanish scholar
and it is remarked that the Board will doubt
less be greatly benefitted by the acquisition of
so competent an officcr. He was for a short
. period before its close the Secretary of the late
J Board on Mexican Claims.
P. S.?We have reason to doubt that this
appointment has yet been determined on.
Thkrmomktrical.?Even in our changeful
climate we have seldom experienced bo sudden
a transition of summer into winter as the past'
few days have shown us. The last week was
quite as oppressive as the severest weather of
July or August; while the present week re
quires closed doors, fires, and cloth apparel.
A writer in this morning's Inulliymcer, who
resides in an elevated position on Capitol Hill,
furnishes a memorandum of the state of a ther

The Manchester market is quiet, supposed to
be caused by increased caution which recent
heavy failures inspired. Merchants and bank

The Markets. Liverpool, Sept. 6.?Cotton
assumed a dull aspect. Buyers find the feeling
much in their favor. The most current quali
ties of America have declined nearly Id. during
the week. The authorized quotations are: Fair
Mobile 6|d; fair Orleans 6d; Uplands 6id.
The sales of the week are 36,500 bales, of which
speculators took 3,000; exporters 5,000 bales
The sales of Friday were 6,000 bales, 1,500 to
speculators and exporters; market closed quiet.
Breadstuff's.?Grain is in demand and brisk
at previous prices. A good steady business in
wheat and Hour at full rates current at the
sailing of the Pacific. There is less disposition
to press sales.
Provisions.?There is nothing new to report
beyonu the extreme dullness. Lard continues i
active. Tallow quiet, but no lower in prices.
Groceries.?A larger business is doing in su

Arrival or Dr. Gardiner.?The well-known
" X." of the Baltimore Sun wrote from this city
to that paper yesterday evening :
"Dr. Gardiner has returned in the Pacific,
and will arrive here to night or to-morrow
morning early. I have seen and talked with
him in New York. He is ready to meet and
confound all his accusers."
We have to add that Dr. Gardiner has ar
rived in this city, and that already he has been
h? the custody of the Marshal and bailed out,
giving security in the sum of $40,000. Dr.
Thomas Miller and Mr. Riggs (late a partner
of Mr. Corcoran) entered on his bond. Dr.
Miller was the security of the brother of Dr.
Gardiner in the sum of $8,000. It is reported
in this city, however, that a deposite of $70,000
has been made to indemnify Dr. M.
So then, issue will be joined, and the " great
Gardiner Claim" will be settled at last.
The younger Gardiner has gone to Mexico,
it is said, to procure testimony to establish the j
validity of this claim.
California Land Commissioner.?Among
the distinguished strangers now in the city is
the Hon. Harry I. Thornton, of the California
Land Commission. Judge Thornton is a native
of Virginia, but has been a citizen of the State
of Alabama for upwards of twenty years. He
is a gentleman of elegant scholastic attain
ments, an eminent lawyer, and "graced the
ermine" on the bench of the supreme court of
the State of Alabama for several years. The
Judge married the sister of the Hon. J. J. Crit
No man in Alabama is more esteemed than

Grand Lodge or the United States, I. O.
O. F.?The annual meeting of the Grand Lodge
of the United States commenced its session at
Baltimore yesterday morning. The Sun states
that a very large delegation, numbering about
one hundred, was present, nearly every State
in the Union being represented. (Among the
rest is a visiting delegate from Honolulu, Sand
wich Islands, P. G. Webster.) The Grand
Lodge proceeded to the installation of officers,
as follows, with appropriate ceremonies :
Grand Sire?W. W. Moore, D. C.
Deputy Grand Sire?H. L. Page, Wisconsin.
Grand Secretary?James L. Kidgely, Md.
Grand Treasurer?A. E. Warner, Md.
Grand Chaplain?J. M. Willey, Conn.
Grand Warden?John Sessford, jr., D. C.
Grand Messenger?J. E. Chamberlain, Md.
Grand Guardian?J. L. Lewyt, Md.
Political Capital.??Governor Johnston, of
Pennsylvania, has been considered by some not
"sound on the slavery question." The recent
lamentable occurrence in Chester county has
called for a test of his official good faith, and
he has stood up to the line of duty. The affair
for political uses has proved opportune, and the
most will be made of it. We hope, however,
too much attention may not thus be given to
the subject. Let enough be done to allay the
apprehensions of the dissatisfied?nothing to
provoke excitement. Arrest the violators of
the law, aud give them adequate punishment;
and there let the matter end.
Police.?It is worthy of remark that, on the
12th of September, a sort of half-holiday in
Washington, and a military parade day to boot,
there was not a singlo arrest made.
To-day we hear of nothing, except a poor
little lost boy, who found refuge at Justice
Death of J. Fenimore Cooper. ?We learn with
regret, by a telegraphio despatch of yosterday'i
date, from New York, that James Fenimore
I Cooper, the distinguished novelist, died on
Sunday at his residence in Cooperstown. He
had long been in feeble health, and a fatal ter
