Tax Island or Cuba?Reported Proposal* of
Sale to the United State* by the Spanish Oovern
ment.? The followiug is extracted from the
London Leader, of the 6th instant, an able and
highly respectable journal of the liberal school:
Terms for the Sale of Cuba.?On authority
which we believe to be quite trustworthy, we
learn the terms of the negotiation now going
on, in London, for the sale of Cuba to the Ame
rican Government. It is anticipated that Qen.
Lopez will be repulsed ; but after the Spauish
governmeut has thus cleared its honor, the isl
and will be sold to the United States for a
round sum of money. More t)mn one douceur
will be given?among others, an immense sum
to the Queen-mother of 8pain. But the most
remarkable bonus is the allotment of half the
purchase money to the English holders of Span
ish bonds.
It is said that Lord Palmerston dislikes these
terms. Credat Juditus.
We do not know how far the late explosion
in Luba and New York will effect this negotia
tion ; but, acoording to our authority, it will
make no difference?Gen. Lopez, the English
bondholders, and other influential parties, hav
ing been engaged in the negotiation before the
nntoward event, recounted elsewhere, occurred
at Havana.
The Boston Celebration.
The accouut of the doings, feastings, military
reviews and marching?, welcomo speeches and
replies which took place on the occasion of the
great Railroad Jubilee at Boston, on the 17th
instant, has come to hand, with all the speeches
made by President Fillmore, Mr. Webster, Mr.
Stuart, and Mr. Conrad, on the occasion, as
well as the speeches of welcome made to the
President by Governors, Mayors, and other dis
tinguished persons selected to do so.
The speeches of the President and his Cabi
net Ministers are made stale by their sameness,
in the matter of fulsome lip-praise, and by their
repetition. We have no room for them. But
we have room for the neatest, most chaste, ap
propriate and patriotic speech which wo find in
the whole batch published. It is the address
of his honor Mayor Bigelow, of Boston, and
does high credit to bis uncommon head and
heart. Read it, everybody, as follows:
Sib : The people of Boston now crowd her
gates to receive with tokens of honor the great
head of the republic, and in their name I bid
you welcome to this metropolis. We regard it
as a happy omen that we receive you on the spot
where our fathers gathered to hail the comin*
of Washington, in the first year of his Presi
dency. The contrast exhibited between that I
period and this is striking and instructive. The
salutations extended to the first President were
the offering of only eighteen thousand inhab
itants, while the welcome proffered to his suc
cessor this day is the voice of a population of
one hundred and forty thousand. ? The ruler
who was then received administered the affairs
of less than four millions of people, who had
lately emerged from the smoke of battle, and
were but beginning, under the influences of
liberty and union, to take rank among the na
tions of the earth. You, sir, we receive as the
Executive Chief of a population of twenty-four
millions, living in the enjoyment of an amount
Of prosperity and happiness almost unparalleled
in the history of the world.
By a remarkable coincidence, which doubt- I
less has occurred to yourself, you visit us on
the anniversary ef the completion of the Fede
ral Constitution. It is a day peculiarly fitting
for the reception of him whose authority as the
* ederal Chief Magistrate is derived from that
great compact. The day has also a special in
terest for this city, for it is the anniversary of
its settlement. While the occasion thus calls
to mind the Philadelphia conclave, and the Pil
grim colony, I trust that you will recognise in
the character of our people and their institu
tions the happily blended influences of the pu
ritan and the patriot.
You have recently, sir, visited Virginia, and
now stand upon the soil of Massachusetts. The
names of those States recall the story of the
Revolution, and the noble part sustained by
each in that drama. Your reception in the Old
Dominion indicates her fealty to the Union, and
her attachment to the principles of other times.
This day will furnish evidence of the regard of
the Bay State, also, for that Union and those
principles, by the manner in which her people
will testify their respect for the faithful admin
istrator of the Constitution and the Laws.
It has been the oustom of war, sir, for the
inhabitants of captured cities to bring forth
the keys and lay them at the victor's feet. A !
nobler offering is tendered to you than was ever
surrendered to the conqueror: The hearts of
our people are here to greet you with grateful
and affectionate salutations, and bid you wel
* come to our homes.
((?larth the Arttat, and Latham tha
We believe in luck, and especially in Latham's
nek. Fortune never showers her gifts but the
choicest fall on Latham. He was born to good
luck, and has never disposed of his birthright.
We have to-day seen a Walking-Stick, cut
from the old iron-braced mulberry tree at the
Hogarth House, Chiswick, England, and sent
?a a present to " R. W. Latham, esq., the libe
ral and successful Banker of Washington,"
Whose fame, we are proud to know, has reached
the opposite shores of the broad Atlantic.
The mansion in which the immortal Hooartii
lived and died is at the ancient town of Chis
wick, on the Thames, about six miles west of
tha Crystdl Palace. It was formerly the resi
dence of Sir James Thornhill, with whose
daughter Hogarth fall in love; and it was from
the window shaded by the boughs of this glori
ous old tree that " the great painter of man
kind" stole his future wife!
Hogarth's subsequent fame induced Sir James
to invite the young couple to the homestead,
and it became their home until they saw " the
laat of earth." Under the venerable branches
of this gigantic mulberry it was Hogarth's wont
to imbibe his beer and inspiration, and amuse
himeelf with his faithful dog Pompey, and bird
Dick. 'Here, too, Hogarth reached the noblest
point of art, and conceived those moral pictures
whioh oharm the mind, and through the eye
comet the heart.
We admire this present. No man deserves
theee tokens of appreciation more than Mr.
Latham; for who ia blessed with a kinder
haari, * generosity more active, or whose every
4ay lift more practically illustrates the sublime
idea of doiag " the greatest good to the greatest
number t"
Episcopal Church i* New York.?The an
nual Convention of the Diocese of New York
will be held on Wednesday next, in St John a
church, in the city of New York. The election
of a Bishop, we are informed by the papers of
that city, will be the chief topic of interest.
Last year, it will be recollected, there was a
division between the clergy and the laity?the
former being in favor of Dr. Seabury, the lat
ter of Dr. Williams. The friends of Dr. Onder
donk, comprising a majority of the clergy, cast
their votes for Dr. Seabury?the opponents of
the ex-Bishop, mainly of the laity, voted for
Dr. Williams. It being necessary that both
branches should agree upon one candidate,
there was no election. Since that time Dr.
Williams has been chosen Assistant Bishop of
Connecticut, and of course cannot be a candi
date. His party of last year, it is said, have
resolved to nominate Dr. Kip, of Albany. An
other prominent member of the New \ ork city
clergy, Dr. Whitehouse, has been elected As
sistant Bishop of Illinois, the venerable Bishop
Chase having become so infirm as to be unable
to fulfil his Office. ^

Crime vs. Education.?The whole number
of persons convioted of crime in the State of
New York, from 1840 to 1848, inclusive, was
27,949. Of these 1,182 were returned as hav
ing received a common eduoation ; 441 as hav
ing a tolerably good education, and 128 only as
well educated. Of the remaining 26,226, about
one-half were able merely to read and write;
| the residue were destitute of any education
whatever. , ' ,
j Thk Richmond Daily Dispatch.?This lit
tle one-center is published by James A. Cowardin,
.ind edited by Hugh R. Pleasants. It says of
itself that it is " nearly a year old, and a more
> healthy and thrifty yearling we know not of.
i * It is very surprising to some people that it has
4 lived so long. As popular as it is, it is grow
? ing in popular favor daily. 'Young Richmond'
' has taken to the Dispatch?your go-ahead en
' terprising men nearly all seek its columns to
' advance their interests. They know a thing
? or two." We trust that all the laggards may
yet have their eyes opened to the wisdom of
cheering it on to the highest point of success.
Diath of a Missionary.?The New York
Tribune announces the death of the Rev. Wm.
T. Biddle, which occurred in that city on
Wednesday, at the house of Rev. John Dowling,
D. D., where he was awaiting his departure for
Burmah in a few weeks. Mr. Biddle was a
young man of groat promise, of whom high
hopes had been formed ; his personal worth was
not inferior to that unassuming merit which
made him a bright example of unobtrusive but
efficient usefulness. Circumstances of a pecu
liar and affecting nature make his death an
occurrence of unusual interest to the public.
Five weeks previous to his death he was or
dained, the day following he waa married, three
weeks ago he graduated with honor at Hamilton,
and in a short time was expected to leave his
I native land for his field of labor as a missionary
in Burmah. His labors are ended here. On
I Friday laBt he was attacked with a complaint
I in the throat, which assumed a malignant type
on Tuesday, and he closed his eyes in peace
and hope on Wednesday morning.
Murder or a Youno Ladt.?The Warsaw
(III.) Journal relates a case of aggravated mur
der in McDonough county, a few days since.
A young man was paying his addresses to a
young lady, and had been engaged to her, but
was discarded. He went to her residence to
effect a reconciliation, but was unsuccessful,
and he stabbed her to the heart. The miscreant |
was pursued to within six miles of Warsaw, but j
Improbable.?The editor of a Western paper j
gays that he has three times put on a clean j
shirt for the purpose of calling on the Governor
of his 8tate, but did not see him. No Western
Governor expects such etiquette?no Western
editor practises it?and it is the custom for
Governors to wait on editor*, and oourt their
favor. The story has no probability in it.
Remarkable.?A friend, says a New York j
paper, a short time since met two individuals |
at Utica, Clarke county, Iowa, having the same !
name*?John Prather?whose fathers were bro- j
there, whose mothers were sisters, and whose
wives are sisters. ,
Terrknce Bellew McManus.?This gentle
man, one of the martyrs in the recent efforts of
| the Irish to achieve religious and political lib
erty, has opened a commission house in San
I Francisco.
' Iron.?The Wheeling Gazette remarks that
immense quantities of iron are arriving daily
from Europe, although one-half of our own iron
workers are lying idle.
N. P. Willis.?This gentleman, whose family
have been passing the summer in New Bedford,
has been confined to his bed for two or three
weeks, with a severe attack of pleurisy.
Annexation or the Sandwich Islands to
the United States.?Rev. J. C. Holbrook, one
of the correspondents of the Independent, in a
letter to that journal upon the Home Mission
ftry prospects in the West, makes the following
"Even the foreign missionary field at the
Sandwich Islands may become home missionary
ground, Bhould our Government accede to the
proposition now before it for the annexation of
those islands. A friend of mine, the United
States Consul for Hawaii, I learn by a letter
just received, is now in this country, the bearor
of such a proposition."
Fatal Aocwent.?Exra Robbins was acci
; dentally shot dead with a rifle, by his son-in
law, John Roberts, in Clarentont., N. H., on
Sunday. The parties were in the woods gun
We have never before heard of so many ac
cidents of this kind as have occurred throughout

The Baltimore Sun, of thi? morning, pnb
lishes the following letter from the ttev. Mr.
Gorsuch to Go*. Johnston, in which he replies
to the letter of the Governor:
Wabhimqtoh, Sept. 18, 1861.
Hon. Win. F. Johnston, Oovtmd^f Pennsylvania.
The undersigned, a son of the late Edward
G01 such, the victim of abolitionist enthusiasm
aud high-handed rebellion, is sorry that so
painful a duty is imposed upon him as that to
which he now addresses himself. He writes to
you, sir, with no vindictive feelings, but ouly
to assure you, what be desires every one to
know, that be thinks tbe lock of <^oial prompt
ness on your part has resulted in the escape,
hitherto, of tbe slaves, and some of the princi
pal murderers of bis father. It would have
tended in some degree to relieve th?canxiety of
the family and friends of the deceased, to have
known that the Governor of the State in which
this foul murder wus committed had acted as
promptly and efficiently as the circumstances
1 know that you passed within a few yards of
where the body of my father lay, the afternoon
of the same day on which he was murdered.
Tbe cars stopped at the door of the house.
Some of tbe passengers went in to look at tbe
ghastly spectacle. But, sir, you did not. You
who ought because of your responsible station
to have been most interested, showed the least
concern. And this is not tb be wondered at. It
would seem natural that then you should have
been rejoicing at this, the first fruits of your
official and personal hostility to the rendition
of fugitive slaves. Did we not well know what
you have doue to render inoperative the law
under whose protection my father entered your
State to secure hiB property, in a mauner
Btrictly legal, some excuse might be found in
our minds lor your strange inactivity. But we
knew your course. We had watched it with
pain, and we did not expect you would be in
duced to change it even at this extraordinary
Allow me to call your attention to a fact
which, perhaps, you will remember. Those
slaves, for whom my father was searching,
were to be free at the ago of twenty-eight.
They were detected in selling stolen wheat to a
free negro. Before the writ which was gotten
out against him could be served he escaped to
Pennsylvania. This brother of mine, now so
near to death, was sent to you with a requisi
tion from the Governor of Maryland for that
free negro, "Abe Johnson." But you would
not deliver him up, and sent my brother home,
convinced that further effort in that respect
was unnecessary. That " Abe Johnson," it is
said, was present among tbe rebels on last
Thursday morning.
I have read some letters whioh you wrote to
some gentlemen of Philadelphia, who were
urging you to action. 1 marked the strong
contrast between your words and actions. Now, |
sir, if you were so anxious to vindicate the |
honor of your State?so proud to have these
offenders arrested, why did you not imitate the
noble example of the Executive of the United
States ? Why did you not issue your proclama
tion as soon as you reached Philadelphia ? If
it ought to have been done at all, were there
not stronger reasonB to have it done on the,/?nrt
day, when tbe murderers were at band, than on
tbe fifth, when most of them had escaped ? 1 ou
cannot plead ignorance of the riot, for it was
well known to you. You will not pretend to
say that it was more necessary when several
prominent actors in that tragedy were ar
rested, and the whole neighborhood scoured
by vigorous young gentlemen from Maryland,
I by a host of your own citizens and United
States military, than when every one that
desired tbe punishment of these murderers and
traitors was afraid to move; when the rioters?
still wet with the blood of innocent aud peace
able men?were triumphing in their victory, and
their confederates congratulating themselves
upon successful treason! Why, sir, did you not
show your promptness then? You applaud the
decision, energy, and promptness of the Lancas
ter county officers, and in this I most heartily
concur; but in proportion as you praise them
you condemn yourself. You knew of the insur
rectionary movement before they did. It they
had waited, as you did, until the fifth day, to
do what ought to have been done on the first,
you could not have applauded them. You must,
therefore, sir, be self-condemned.
Do you know that thirty-six houra passed
before one writ was taken out against these
men? Do you know that Mr. Thompson, tbe J'
State's attorney, and Mr. Keigart, to protect
their own lives and to quell the spirit of resist
ance which fortified the traitors and terrified I
the loyal, had to collect a posse of men from
iron-works and diggings on the railroad ? Do i
you know that not a magistrate or constable
would act uutil compelled ; that the sheriff re
fused to act; that j our attorney general, true
' to bis superior, would not aid these men whose
I activity you now bo zealously commend ?
J With these facts, Bir, before us, we cannot j
be charged with calumny in saying, that We do |
honestly believe that your proclamation would ;
never have seen the light, bad you not feared
that the activity of others would censure your
own indifference.
We believe that the majority of l'ennsylva- (
nians are right. We have been pleased at the
zeal, and gratified with the sympathies of many
we have met. But, sir, if the laws shall now
be sustained; if the couutry shall be satisfied
that Pennsylvania is right; if the South is to ;
find that this law will not be inefficient; be as- j
sured that not one particle of the honor will be
given to the Governor. We will not say that
lie has acted traitorously ; that by his previous
course he has been the indirect occasion of this
outrage; that the blood of Edward Gorsuch is
on bis skirts; but we must say that be has not
been " clear in his great office," but recreant
to the truBt imposed in him.
Much more in Borrow than in anger, 1 Bub- I
scribe myself your much injured friend,
J. S. Gokbcch.
California.?In the news just received there
is nothing of much importance. Business was
brisk at San Francisco; the mining operations
were very successful; society was improving
the preparations for the elections were actively
going on. The steamers have probably brought
a million and a half of gold.
A DivobciCabk m Connecticut.?Mr. Chan
cellor S. Barber petitioned the Superior Court
of New London county, Conn., at the August
term, for divorce from his wife, Phrebe A., on
the ground that she iB guilty of habitual intem
perance and tbe excessive use of morphine,
which, under the Connecticut statute of 1849,
furnish good cause of divorce. Judge Church
has denied the petition, for the reason that the
practices complained of were encouraged by the
petitioner himself, and the result of his own
fault and negligence.
