" The Colored Convention, which met at To
ronto recently, matured plana for the eucour
agemtuit of the concentration of the free colored
people iu the British provinces."
We ma/ err, but we think that these colored
people would carry out as wise a purpose in
" maturing plana" for transporting the orange
trees, the rice and the cotton of the South to
the British provinces. Whether (as some per
sona assert, and as we do not believe) the
negro was originally created a negro, or bccante
such in the lapse of many centuries, we do not
care to inquire. We regard as certain the fact
that ho cannot prosper in a northern climate,
and the statistics of our country abundantly
prove this fast. To enjoy life he must dwell iu
that climate to which his physical characteris
tics so well adapt him--in the sunny South;
and it is to war against nature to remove hint
from it. In oar opinion the widest field ol
benevolent enterprise, now open to the people of
the tlave State*, is the improvement of the moral,
intellectual, aud physical oondition of the Af
rican race in their condition of slavery. Iu
tho angry contest that has arisen, this bus
been lost sight of by too many, and abuses exist
that call for reform. If ever emancipation is
to take place, it muat be after the preparation
for it of the slaves to be liberated. While,
therefore, the slave owners are directly inter
ested in such a reform, the abolitionists should
hail it as an essential, or indeed the only means
of bringing about the object at which they ulti
mately aim. The reforms we would suggest
are such as can only be effected by the slave
owners themselves, and therefore cannot prove
a source of strife or dissatisfaction. If the
bondage of the African race be the necessary
means of redeeming them from savage barbar
ism, and introducing them into the light of
civilization aud Christianity, then these ends
should never for a moment be lost to view.
That the discussion of this subject, and the
adoption of State regulations for promoting the i
intellectual, moral, and religioxu welfare of the
i la vet, would cohtribute equally to their happi
ness and to the prosperity of their owners, we
firmly believe?nay, we know, for we have seen
the practical exemplification of the measure.
We have been upon plantations where severity
and immorality prevailed, and upon others
where kiudness, judicious instruction, good or
der, and correct morality were exhibited; and i
we have seen the effects of both systems of
governing, and the triumphant success of the
Much as slavery is discussed in public jour
nals, in pv,T1ultr assemblies, and in the halls of
legislation, is it u?' strange that a word is never
uttered haviug for its phject the promotion of
the present happiness of the poor slave ? Are
there not men in every Stale of the South who
can find time to turn aside from the discussion
of the abstract right of Blavery, to do great
good, and make smooth the way for any future
course of action upon which they may see fit to
determine ? We can assure such that there are
many in the middle and northern Stales who
would, without the least desire of dictation, do
all in their power to promote so good a cause.
Let the spirit of reform but assume this shape,
and while the welfare of the slave will be im
mediately promoted, the bond of good feeling
between the people of the North and the South
will be reunited forever.
Mr. i". de Gournat, who was for some time the
agent of Lopez in Cuba, declares that Lopez
had the most ample testimony ef the readiness
of a strong party in that island to revolt, und
says : " But lew Cubans joined him, it is true;
but how many tried to join him ? The jailors
of Havana may answer that question by stating
how mauy arrests were made on the roads since
the 12th of August; they can answer it by
telling what is the crime committed by over
2,000 wretches now in Spanish dungeons or
trausported to Spain. The soldiers, also, can
answer by saying how many have been executed
behind the bushes of the Agpacate and the j
Pena Blanca."
Back to Ireland.?We tee it stated that
two hundred Irish emigrants, who recently ar
med at New York from Ireland, started to re- j
tarn home by the ship Constitution for Liver
pool, from New York, on Monday. What a
pity, when each family could procure a farm '
for a hundred dollars, upon which an indepen
dent livelihood could be earned, and good ser
vice rendered our country by the improvement
of unoccupied lands! But it is the misfortune
of many immigrants to prefer squalid wretch
edness in the tLronged streets to abundance
and tranquillity in the open field and the wide
When these people leave home, they should
be impresaed with the conviction that the Far
West is their goal I As it is, however, they
aim for New York, and there finding tens of
thousands who, like themselves, have brought
poverty, laiiness, dissipation, and wretched
ness with A em, the/ conclude that America is
not an Eden after all, and relapse into their
original sloth to perish, or return to the hope
lees scenes of their native home*.

paper; but on perusing it carefully, we find
that it contains nothing directly to the poiut in

Fbiqhtful Scene.?On Thursday afternoon,
Mr. S. A. King made his first attempt to asccnd
in a balloon fVoiu the Zoological Garden, Fair
mount, Philadelphia. Jle was unable to obtain
a sufficient quantity of gas, but not relishing
the idea of a failure, and desirous of preventing
j disappointment to the spectators, he undertook
to risk an ascent with a partial inflation, and in
doing so came near losing his life. His balloon
dashed against the enclosure, then came in con
tact with the Wire Bridge, and next struck the
telegraph wires?the car all the while swaying
to and fro in the wind. Finally it descended
into the Schuylkill. Tho balloon, after bounc
ing up and down in the water, and half drown
ing the intrepid voyager, at length rose to the
western bank of the river, where the teronaut
struck terra firm#. The scene was a most
thrilling one. Mr. King was not much hurt.
His escape was truly miraculous. The specta
tors bore the delay and disappointment patiently,
and a majority of them were opposed to Mr. K.
risking the danger he encountered. When in
the water, boats promptly put out to his assist
ance. The excitement was intense.
Nearly all the Cabinet are now in Washing
ton. Give praise!
Gubernatorial Candidates In Virginia.
The Whig State Convention met at Charlottes
ville on Thursday, and organized by electing
Col. Bondurant chairman. Mr. Segar nomina
ted George W. Summers, of Kanawha county,
for Governor, which was carried by acclama
tions Mr. Sheffey, of Augusta, stated that
Mr. Summers Would accept the nomination,
which announcement was received with cheers.'
The attendance of delegates was large, and the
utmost harmony and enthusiasm are said to
have prevailed. Speeches were made by a
number of distinguished gentlemen. The con
vention, after appointing Committees on Reso
lutions and State Organization, adjourned till
the next day, when an Attorney General and
Lieutenant Governor were to be nominated.
The Democratic State Convention met at
Staunton on Thursday, and it was believed, from
indications, that Green B. Samuels, of Shenan
doah county, would be nominated for Governor.
Considerable rivalry exists among the friends
of the different candidates. In the first ballot
Johnston received 14,000 votes; Samuels'
19,800; Floyd, 9,300; Wise, 800. The coun
j ties represented were entitled, respectively, to
I the Democratic vote polled at the last Presid'en
i tial election.

A Revival or Religion.?We learn from the
I.eesburg Chronicle that a revival of religion is
going on in the Methodist Episcopal church, in
Waterford, Loudoun county, under the minis
try of Messrs. Chenowith and Coombs. Madj
converts have been made, and, on Sunday last,
seventeen members were added to the church.

Oirard from the place of their repose for the

at the Oirard College. Joseph E. Chandler is
the orator of the occasion.
Asothbr Tom Thumb.?The "Eco Jt Villa
Clara," (Cuba,) mentions the existence at Han
Juan de los Remedios of a new wonder in the
shape of a small man ; the subject is Don Anto
nio de Jesus Oonzales, who is 28 years old, and
about thirty-eight inches high. Excepting his
arms and leg*, he is perfectly formed, and is
quite handsome. From the right shoulder to
the end of the front finger of his right hand is
only seven inches. The left arm, from the
shoulder to the point of the first finger, is
twelve inches long. His left leg is eighteen
inches, and his right sixteen inches long; his
hands haTe only four fingers each, but the feet
are perfect and well formed. He walks quickly,
but with a slight limp. It is said that this
prodigy will visit the United States. Where's

There is a smaller man than that at Havana,
a man by the name of Owen, and of some de

Misaas. Kmwwta: Mr. SmmUt/ Stuart Mid
some #f hia " dependant# " ae?m to b? getting
famoue for rendering "aid and comfort" to
Democratic oandidate# for Congreaa, and hop
ing to eleot them. The oaae of the South Bend
(Indiana) district, in which Dr. Fitoh, the Dem
ocratic candidate, wu handaomely helped, while
Mr. Colfax, the Whig candidate, was aeverely
damaged, has already been brought to the no
tice of your readers.
Mr. Secretary Stuart, while the campaign
was sharply going on in the South Bend dis
trict, sends to the Democratic candidate an ap
pointment worth eight dollars per day.
In the Whig portion of the district, Mr. Col
fax addresses the people, and asks for their
votes. He tells them that he and President
Fillmore and his Cabinet are Whigs, and that it
' they will send him to Congress, the Whig Ad
ministration will ask what his constituents
want, and will co-operate with him in obtain
ing what they want.
Dr. Fitch now speaks: Gentlemen Whigs,
you need not trouble yourselves to send Mr.
Colfax to Congress. 1 have been there once,
and I know all the ropes. Why, /, and not
Mr. Colfax, have the confidence of the Whig
Administration at Washington. Just look at
this important and responsible appointment
sent to me by Mr. Secretary Stuart! Is not
(hat evidence, strong as proof of Holy Writ,
that I am in favor with the Administration, and
can better get its co-operatiou than my com
petitor ?
And besides, has not the Postmaster General,
the intimate, confidential friend aud adviser of
President Fillmore, dismissed from office, as
mail agent, the stepfather of Mr. Colfax ?
Would my competitor be thuB damaged and
paralyzed in his campaign by the Administra
tion, if said Administration desired him to be
elected to Congress? The thing is preposter
How could Mr. Colfax make headway before
his Whig audience against such a knock-down
argument on the part of his opponent 1
In the Democratic portion of the district, Dr.
Fitch used another kind of argument. He
pounced down upon the Federal Whig Admin
istration as being every thing unworthy of
Democratic support?as being, in fine, no bet
ter than it should be.
A distinguished Tennessee Democrat, now in
this city, states another instance in which the
Secretary of the Interior, or some one of his
?? dependants," has rendered " aid and com
fort" to a hard-pushed Democratic candidate
for Congress. , , , .
Colonel Andrew Johnson, who has long been
a radical Democratic member of Congress, was
opposed, at the recent election, by Colonel
At Jonesborough, court-day, the fourth W ed
nesday in June last past, Colonel Haynes elo
quently rebuked Colonel Johnson for his con
stant neglect, while at Washington, to exert
himself to get the Government to issue land
warrrants to the East Tennessee volunteers, for
the Florida war, in 1836, who, although they were
not ordered to Florida, did good service in the
Cherokee Nation, in capturing runaway Creeks,
Seminoles, &c. The Government still refuses
land-warrants to those East Tennessee volun
But Colonel Johnson was pressed so hard in
the matter by Colonel Haynes at Jonesborough,
as aforesaid, that he posted off a letter to Wash
ington, declaring that he must have a land
warrant upon some one of the applications of
the East Tennessee volunteers aforesaid, which
were then on file in the proper bureau. His
request was immediately complied with. A
land-warrant for one hundred and Bixty acres ;
of land was made out in favor of Alphonso
Williams, of Captain Powell's company of the
| aforesaid volunteers, bearing date the 10th of
' July last, and sent under cover to the Hon. j
Andrew Johnson, M. C., Greenville, East Ten- j
nessee, and by Colonel Johnson, on the 19th of j
i the same month, held up to the crowd and read
at a public meeting. Colonel Johnson was thus
enabled to show that he had obtained at least
one land-warrant of the class which the Gov- :
ernment had condemned, and was greatly ben- ;
efited thereby in obtaining his re-election.
So ice go. j
Mr. Postmaster General Hall has decided in
favor of the proposals of Mr. Jones of Newark,
New Jersey, for supplying the Department with
mail locks. The first order will probably be
for twenty thousand locks.
Now for Mr. Hall's practical judgment as to
the safety and security of those selected locks.
After the decision had been made, one of the
competitors for the contract who resides at
Perth Amboy, New Jersey, in the presence of
the Postmaster General, picked the selected
Jones' lock with a shoemaker's awl four times
in about one minute.

How thet Preserve Order is Austria.?
The Vienna correspondent of the London \eic?
describes the following shocking affair as having
taken place at Sxent Maria, near Gross-Wardien,
lately. It is no wonder that such narratives
should excite incredulity in this country:
" At a peasant's wedding, when the proces
sion of the betrothed was moving towards the
church, tho gend'arme approached tha bride,
and summoned her immediately to divest her
self of the red, white, and green ribbona which
she had in her dress, according to the custom
1 of the country girls, saying that these colors
' were revolutionary. The bridegroom objected,
saying that after the ceremony the bride would
comply with the desire of the gend'arme, but
' that now they could not keep the priest waiting
at the altar. The gend'arme retired, the pro
cession proceeded to the church; but, at the
moment when the bride was kneeling at tho
steps of the altar to receive the benediction, the
gend'arme rushed forward and cut her tresses
and ribbons with scissors from her head. In
Hungary it is considered a great insult to a
fetnnle to cut her hair; it conveys a notion of
infamy. Naturally an affray took place; the
gend'arme was assailed by the bridegroom; other
gend'armes arrived in aid of their fellow-official;
the people, though without arms, rushed upon
them, und the result was the slaughter of seven
men, three gend'armes and four peasants, among
them the bridegroom and the brutal assailant
of the bride." _
