5=*S^~ WAiHlSOTOM ? THURSDAY AFTERNOON, SEPT. 18. ^ ooutiuue to receive by every mail u. wHj.?per. oonUluiug our little oanl "To the Pub lic," ttud asking an exchange. Our oflor iu that lia* bgen loug ?iu?? revo^eJ. U Mexican Boundary Commission.?It will be remembered that Col. MoClellan, of the U. S. Topographical Corps, wan originally associated with Col. Barilett in this commission, but that in consequence of a misunderstanding between these gentlemen the former was withdrawn. He was succeeded by Major Graham, of the same corps, whose fate was similar. >Ve now learn that Major Emery, of the same corps, has has b<B?u appointed to aid Col. Bartlett in the arduous and responsible duties devolving upon him. . California Land Claims Commission.?We, ? day or two ago, threw a doubt over the re ported appointment of Dr. Davis to the Secre taryship of this Commission. We now learn from what wc regard as credible authority, that the place has not been given to Dr. D., but to J. B. Carr, esq., of Natchitoches, Louisiana. We are assured by several Louisianians who know Mr. Carr, that the choice is an excellent one ; that he is a most estimable gentleman, a fine scholar, and fluently conversant with several modern languages. "The Bitter Blood!" How invariably the Bpirit of intolerance is prone to arise and to manifest its power ! It is seen and felt wherever hierarchies prevail, and wherever men are abject enough to crouch in terror before its haughty strides! Since we commenced the publication of the American Telegraph we have encountered a succession of shocks that might perhaps have frightened us, could we have anticipated them. We have felt the effects of the combined opposition of Demo crats, Roman Catholics, Whigs, and Methodists, and pro and anri-slavery men, in the order here named ; and the cry of " stop my paper!" has invariably accompanied the onset. This morn ing we received the following : To the Editor* of the American Telegraph. Gentlemen : In your paper of last evening there appeared a " Hymn to the Virgin," which to a Protestant sounds so much like idolatry, that, for one, I must express my surprise at its admission into your columns. Romanists have their own papers and should confine their effusions to them, that the feelings of those who believe there is "but one media tor between God and man, the man Christ JesuB," may not be outraged. Very respectfully your obedient Bervant, Washington, Sept. 17, 1851. Our explanation is, that as the hymn alluded to is to be sung at an early day (wo believe next Sabbath) at St. Matthew's Roman Catholic church in this city, its publication is doubtless gratifying to a large number of the highly re spectable people of that congregation, and therefore it should find & place in a newspaper designed for all; secondly, that if it is idola trous, Protestants will of course desire to Bee this proof of Roman Catholic idolatry, and therefore it should have publicity to meet their wishes; thirdly, it is from the pen of our friend, J. Austin, esq., whoBe effusions we always publish with pleasure ; fourthly, it was written at the request of the beautiful vecalist whose voioe is to warble its graceful refrain, and therefore merited our respectful consideration; ? and fifthly and finally, we chose to publish it, with an entire disregard, as is our custom, of anybody's will in the matter, sav? our own. So there now! The fear that many religionists have of see ing in print any thing opposed to their own views has often strengthened the conviction, in profane minds, that they all suspect themselves of being wrong!?but our experience has taught us that the most firm and best understanding Christians have the least fear of the lights re flected by their adversaries. Mr. Edwin Forrest.?Although this gentle man played Damon to perfection at New York the other night, he made a speech that plainly proved him incompetent to conduct himself in a proper manner. He should place himself under the control of a discreet friend, and then, under that friend's advice, pay close attention to his profession, make all the money he can, say nothing about his private griefs, and re strict himself to the companionship of honest people. The bestowment of a hundred dollars every few weeks in charity would neither injure his purse nor his heart, in the meantime; and j silence towards his enemies would be sure to 1 annihilate them or their enmity. Poor Forrest! he is a great actor, a powerful declaimer, and naturally a good enough fellow; but he is, except strictly in the line of his pro- | fession, an untutored man, poorly instructed in the elements of intellectual knowledge, and almost entirely blank as respects moral or reli gious culture. This is his misfortune, but it is one that obedience to the p'romptings of a good heart will enable any man to overcome. An Original Story.?We shall in a few days commence the publication of an original story ; and we here give notice that they who fail to preserve the papers containing it and the long, ) long poem by Tlutarch Puffer, esq., will have occasion to regret their negligence. Now is the time for all persons to commence taking the Telegraph, as we can make no promises of back numbers when called for. How is it ??The despatches have announced the arrival of the Europa, at Boston, with fifty thousand dollars in specie. Is England sending it back to us T There is some mistake about this. Thn Christiana Affair.?A murder has been committed, and the murderer has been arrested, and will be tried and punished; while the ministers of the law and the people have been prompt and faithful to act. What more is required t Publio meetings in Philadelphia, Baltimore, and elsewhere, will do no good, but may do harm. It would be better if both par ties would dispense with the capital they hope to make out of this matter. " The Amerimn Phrenological Journal, and Repository of Science, Ht*r*ture, and General Intelligent*," (published monthly at $1 a year, by Fowlers A Wells, N. T.,) possesses interest for every reader, and should find a weloome to every family. Homicide.-?William Wells, a marine, belong ing to the Washington Nary-yard, and said to be from Baltimore, was last evening committed to jail by Justice Crandell. for further exarni uation, charged with the murder of Samuel Muudell, aged thirteen or fourteen years, a son of the orderly sergeant at the navy-yard. A coroner's iuquest was this morning held on the body of the boy, but we have not learned its verdict. The particulars of the case appear to be, that Wells aud another marine, and three lads, all belonging to the barracks, went on a gunning excursion, beyond the Eastern Branch, yester: day afternoon; that when on their return home, having made a halt at a branch on Mr. Atchiuson's grounds, a little distance beyond the bridge, Wells wished to hurry home, previ ous to the "retreat;" that words passed be tween him and young Mundell on this subject; that Mundell struck him; that he struck back; that just then some one else struck him on the shoulder aud diverted his attention; that on looking toward Mundell again he perceived he was making towards him to strike him with his gun ; that he pulled the gun from the boy, stepped back two paces, leveled it at him, and fired, shooting him in the breast and killing him instantly ; that he then attempted to run off, but was seized by the other marine and the boys, and brought before Justice Crandell. Delaware College.?We refer to the adver tisement of this institution, which will be found in our columns. It is a school of rare excel lence, and we are urged to commend it by parents whose sons are in the enjoyment of its efficient instruction, its salutary discipline, and the agreeable and profitable associations by which its pupils are surrounded. We sometime since alluded to the appoint ment of a new professor to this College, of whom we are pleased to observe, in the North American, the following complimentary notice : "Daniel Kirkwood.?We learn with great pleasure that Mr. Daniel Kirkwood, A. M., of Pottsville, the well-known discoverer of the great law of planetary relations, known as " Kirkwood's Law," has been tendered and has accepted the Professorship of Mathematics and Astronomy in Delaware College. The high reputation Mr. Kirkwood has acquired in these departments of science, both in this country and Europe, furnishes a sufficient guarantee of talents and abilities which are of no common order; while the name he bears?an illustrious Delaware name, to which he has given addi tional celebrity?is a happy augury for the in stitution with which he will henceforth be con nected." A Caution.?In attempting to raise a heavy piece of marble at Todd's new building this morning, the derrick gave way and fell with a fearful crash. No one was injured, but a lady who was passing narrowly escaped being crushed to death. The snapping of one of the guys was the occasion of the mishap. We would recommend greater caution than is prac tised in these matters. Roman Catholic Abchbisuop of Baltimore. The Baltimore Sun of this morning says: It was rumored yesterday in the city, and pretty gen erally credited, that the Right Rev. BiBhop Francis Patrick Kcnrick, of Philadelphia, has been appointed by the Pope to the vacancy in the Archbishoprick of Baltimore. The most Rev. P. Cullum, Primate of Ireland, it is said, is deputed by the Pope to bring over the pal lium and superintend the ordination. On in quiry, we ascertained that such was said to be the case, but that it was not sufficiently authen ticated for an official announcement. Reduction of Fare.?On and after the 1st of October next, the fare on the Baltimore and Ohio railroad will be reduced from $7 to $'5, from this place to Baltimore, and at all inter mediate points in the same proportion. [Cumberland Unionut. Is there to be no reduction between Baltimore and Washington, and all intermediate points ? We are preparing a little history for the peru sal of the public in general, and this railroad :ompany in particular. Georgetown, D. C.?The Rockville Journal is very much pleased to see that ita Georgetown friends are in earnest about retrocession to Maryland. " In our humble judgment," Bays the editor, " nothing would contribute so much to a revival of the prosperity and growth of Georgetown as the accomplishment of this step. We cannot doubt that her intelligent and enter prising citizens will push the matter vigorously on, and accomplish it as speedily as possible." Public ScnooLs.?A meeting of the Board of Trustees was held yesterday afternoon; pre sent : the Mayor, and Messrs. Randolph, Walsh, Abbot, Donoho, Haliday, Harbaugh, and Bacon, and C. A. Davis, Secretary to the Board. Miss Adeline K. Lowe was elected assistant teacher in primary school No. 2, first district; and Mrs. Margaret Freeman assistant teacher in primary school No. 2, third district; and Mr. Rexin Beck assistant teacher in the male department of the second district school. An annual report was adopted, to be sub mitted to the City Councils. In this they state that for the present " they forego the pleasure of establishing a high school," but recommend the erection of suitable school-houses where they do not now exist, and ask for the appoint ment of a general superintendent of public schools. Mr. Webster. ? Charles Lanmah. ? The Baltimore Sun of this morning says: " A despatch announces that Hon. Daniel Webster arrived at Boston yesterday morning. We learn from Mr. Charles Lanman, the ang ling and artistic author, who passod through this city yesterday on his return to Washington from Marshfield, that the health of Mr. Webster has very much improved within the last few days, and that he now considers himself safe beyond the reach of his annual catarrh. He has gone to Boston merely to meet the Presi dent on business, and not to participate in the Railroad celebration. He has invited Mr. Lan man to the head of the copyright bureau in his department, so that the latter will have to re sign his present position as Librarian of the War Department." The Carnoross Family, at Odd-Fellows' Hall, had a full audience last night, and the applause and laughter were deafening.

The Republic of yesterday and the Intelligen cer of to-day git? to the public the report of the proceedings, at "Judge's Chambers," on Tuesday last, in the matter of admitting to bail Dr. George A. Gardiner, agaiuut whom the grand jury of the county and city of Wash ington had rendered a true bill for peijury. The report of said proceedings being thus admitted to be true, the proceedings them selves are not a little curious. I am not going to proclaim the guilt of Dr. Gardiner: that point should not be prejudged. But when a person has been presented by a grate, sober, and intelligent body of grand ju rors, acting under the solemnity of an oath, as guilty of perjury, it has been customary for the public to look upon such a person with some degreo of suspicion. But in the case in hand we find a parade of bankers, lawyers, and other professional gentlemen of high character, re pairing in state to "Judge's Chambers," as if to carry matters by storm, and giving bail for the accused in the sum of $40,000, by trans-1 ferring, by and with the written consent of the President of the United States, that amount of the caveated or attached funds, which the person thus bailed is charged with having fraudulently obtained from the United States Treasury, to the credit and custody of the persons consent ing to be bail upon such terms. In this way the recognisance of Dr. Gardiner was obtained. Mr. Counsellor Bradley, on the occasion, called the act of the President a " humane agreement," as it transferred a por tion of the Gardiner award from the caveat to the recognisance, aud thereby furnished the accused with the means of obtaining bail. Certainly it was a moBt " humane agreement" on the part of the President, and if the naked truth must be told, it seems as if all the officers of the Government?well paid to look after the interests of the United States, from the Presi dent down to the prosecuting attorneys?could not appear more frenzied to get Dr. Gardiner acquitted than they would be if they fully be lieved and had the proof of his entire innocence. And now for a peep into the actual state of the case. The report of the proceedings on Tuesday does not give the public all that it is naturally curious to know in the matter. It represents that unincumbered stocks, deposited by Dr. Gardiner with Corcoran & Riggs, were declared in evidence to be worth $40,000?and so, with the consent of the President of the United States, those stocks were used to pro cure bail for the accused. It further appeared ! that the whole amount of stocks deposited by i Dr. Gardiner with Corcoran & Riggs did no reach $80,000. On the strength of thif} deposit, Corcoran & Riggs had given two letters of credit, for $10,000 each, to Dr. Gardiner. The remainder of the deposit was deemed good for $40,000, the amount of bail required. Now, what becomes of tho grave statement published in the National Intelligencer some time ago, and in the New York Courier and Enquirer, and repeated by many hired or inter ested writers, that Dr. Gardiner had on deposit with Corcoran & Riggs the sum of $100,000 ? The whole available sum deposited there available for Dr. Gardiner's bail?turns out to be $40,0001 But where has the award of $428,750, made on Dr. Gardiner's claim, gone 1 Where is it ? We have learned the whereabouts of $40,000 of it. Now for another slice. The official re port of Tuesday's proceedings at "Judge's j Chambers," says: "It appeared from the evi dence that the bulk of Dr. Gardiner's award ' (between two and three hundred thousand dol lars) had been left by him in New York, and had been caveated by the President, and was held subject to the verdict." This statement, I doubt not, will prove to be a very erroneous one. The Reporter must have labored under some misapprehension. The writer of this has conversed with one of the learned counsel employed by Dr. Gardiner, and been informed by him that there was no evi dence submitted at " Judge's Chambers" that Dr. Gardiner had on deposite in New York be tween two and three hundred dollars ; nor did ; said learned counsel know of any such evidence. ' The Treasury official statement, which was I published in the Courier and Enquirer, on the j subject, having been sent from this city, repre sented, most emphatically, that Dr. Gardiner had on deposite with Corcoran & Riggs $100,000, and with Mr. Thompson, President of the Life and Trust Insurance Company of New York, $130,000?making in all $230,000 of his award. Now we have seen the $100,000, with Coreo- j ran & Riggs, dwindling down to $40,000. At this rate, how much ought the $130,000 with | the Life and Insurance Company to stand for? 1 The fact is, there has been a vast amount of i mystery about this whole business. A great j pile of money has been taken out of the peo pie's Treasury, and very influential, and pom- I pous, and consequential men have been inte rested and engaged in it. Indeed, two large piles have been taken out of the Treasury, in this connexion?the Gardinor award of $428 - 760, and the Mears award of upwards of $153,000, for which latter award Dr. Gardiner was agent. Mr. Corcoran, the Banker, memo rialized the Board of Commissioners that he had purchased one-quarter of the Gardiner Claim, and asked to have one-quarter of the award set off to him. The Gardiners and Mears had to swear to the memorials they respectively signed, but the consequential Banker was made an exception of. He was not required to swear to his memorial. Supposing he had sworn to it, and afterwards had given, as he did, tes timony before the Criminal Court, at the time J. Carlos Gardiner was bailed, that he had neither purchased nor owned any interest in the Gardiner Claim, what sort of a category would he have been in ? Why simply this, that he was the purchaser in law and not in fact! He has not yet told who was the real bona fide purchaser of that quarter of the Gardiner claim, nor whether he advanced for it more than $18,000 ? He is not going to tell until he chooses to do ?o. A man who with his money power wields Administrations, Presidents, and Cabinet Ministers, and makes fortunes for some of them, but a greater fortune for himself \ as he has been In the habit of doing with the late Polk administration, and with " the present powers that be," will be very apt to take his own time to do what he pleases. The facts in regard to the manner in which he moulded and wielded, in a certain matter, three members of the Polk Cabinet, until he accomplished his object, hare been communicated by a responsi ble voucher to this writer, and may be, as they richly deserve to be, given to the public in some fature number of these epistles. It may be well to state why Dr. Gardiner came back from Europe to stand his trial. His counsel here applied to President Fillmore, in July last, to yield his oonsent that enough of Dr. Gardiner's award on deposit, and caveated to cover his bail, should be set apart for that purpose. The President, in a letter to Mr. Carlisle, consented to the proposition. Tliis fact Mr. Carlisle communicated to Dr. Gar diner in Europe, and, on the strength of it, ad vised him to return to this country and stand his trial. He returned accordingly. A question arises, How are Dr. Gardiner's sworn vouchers to be proved spurious, or forge ries, if the witnesses who swore to them cannot be found ? Congress, and not Mr. J. Carlos Gardiner, nor Mr. Secretary Corwin's devoted friend Slacum, must ferret out the whole truth in this business, and expose it to the world, that the guilty may be punished, if any are guilty, and the innocent may escape. And Congrcti will do it. Commentator. Yibby Sl Millkr are prepared to meet the demands of the public, and desire the public to know it.
