European Negotiation* concerning
The Intelligencer of this morning says: "The
telegraphic despatches sent from London to
Liverpool, on the eve of departure of the Amer
ican mail steamer Baltic, just arrived at New
York, announce somewhat confidently that ne
gotiations have been opened between Spain,
England, and France, which arc likely to result
in a treaty, the object of which will be to pre
serve Cuba to Spain, with Bome such modifica
tions of her government as were mentioned in
a paragraph published in this paper last week.
A few days will solve the question."
This is a very grave subject, and worthy the
serious attention of our Government. We were
very unfortunate in having a representative at
Cuba unsuited for his station; and although we
entertain no unkind feelings towards Mr. liar
ringer, our Minister at Madrid, we are con
strained to say that we do not think diplomacy
is his forte, but that we feel assured he is en
tirely unsuited to the duties now devolving
upon him. Would it were otherwise.
Tint Union Academy.?We refer to the pros
perity of this school with pleasure. It has
opened under encouraging circumstances. Sev
enty scholars were received the first day, and
the number has increased to upwards of ninety.
Mr. Richards has been obliged to send to Bos

seats for Oue hundred scholars. By reference

engaged Mr. ChaBe, froiJ Dartmouth College,
and Mr. McNeil, from Yale College. The phi
losophical and chemical apparatus is complete.
The school is open for visitation from 9 a. m.
to 8 p. m. The plan of the building, its loca
tion, its furniture, and its apparatus, give uni
versal satisfaction.
An End !?The story of " The Witch of Gold
ing Gorge," ai)d "The President's Progress"
done into rhyme, are both completed in to-day's
Telegraph. The cry for back numbers haB been
vociferous within the past few days, but could
not always be satisfactorily responded to.
Accident.?A boy, ten or twelve years old,
was this morning run over by a buggy, in the
First Ward. The wheels passed over both
thighs. Wo could not learn his name, nor the
extent of his injuries.
A Washington Inventor Abroad. ? The
Maysville Pott Boy, of the 26th ultimo, says:
"Mr. Edward I>. Tippett, of Washington city,
the inventor of several machines of great nov
elty and scientific skill, is ia this place with his
inventions, consisting of a balloon to be pro
pelled through the air, and serve as a means of
rapid transportation or machine of war?an
engine of the simplest construction, driven by
steam generated by instantaneous process from
cold water, obviating the necessity of boilers as
now used, and preventing explosions; a wash
ing machine, hominy mill, and centrifugal
churn?all of the highest utility, and curiosi
ties from their new and simple construction.
"Mr. Tippett seems quite enthusiastic in ref
erence to the practicability of navigating the
air by balloons, and intends lecturing on the
subject, when he will explain his views at
Fractious.?A horse ran off with an empty
cart at noon to-day, on Louisiana avenue.
When opposite Copp's, in consequence of a fat
old gcntlcman'B being engaged in drinking a

turned over, and the horse fell on his back.
The animal jumped up when relieved of bis
harness; but the vehiele laid still. Cause why? ,
It waa smashed.

Approaching Elections in Virginia.?On
tho 23d of this month, (October,) members of
Congress and of the State Legislature are to be
elected, and a vote will be taken for and against
the new constitution. Voters under the new I
constitution are entitled to oast their votes upon 1
its adoption, but not for the officers to be
chosen. If the constitution bo adopted, an
election will take place on the 8th of December
next, for a governor, a lieutenant-governor, an
attorney general, and senators and members of
the House of Delegates?the seats of the mem
bers of the Legislature elected in October being
vacated by tho adoption of the new constitu
tion. At the December election, every white
male citizcn of the Commonwealth, of the age
of twenty-one years, who has resided in the
Btate for two years, will be entitled to vote.
Quick Work.?Aa ftn instance of tlie facility
with which large masses of stone are elevated 1

at a height of one hundred feet, in three mi
Hard Lahocaob.?Men. who will not fight
?bould try to use that kind of speech that
" turnoth away wrath but the editor of the
New York Tribunt does not think this. In con
tradicting the Exprut, yesterday, he says:
*' Neighbor I yon are addicted to falsehood on
T?ry alight temptations, but this is so scanda
lous, baseless, abominable a lie, that we cannot
suffer it to pass unrcproTed. Remember that
we brand it on your forehead as a base, black,
wanton, calumnious falsehood, and charge you
with knowing it to be such when you uttered
it Will you attempt to justify it ?"
A Nobli B?qtj?st.?Fifty thousand dollars'
worth of property has been bequeathed to the
Pittsburg and Alleghany Orphan Asylum, by
th? late Dr. Thomas Hartford. He also left
property to the poor of Canton, Ohio, worth
ten thousand dollars.
Ihmu 1?The Louisville Courier, a very de
cided Whig paper, alludes to the nomination of
Messrs. Tyler and Preston for Governor of
V irginia, by some of their respective friends,
and says that the Whigs in Virginia will be aa
oareful of being Uaiphinized as their opponents
seem determined to avoid b eing Tylerued.
We have to remark that the odium of Gal
phinism will prove but a lit clo mote in the sun
beam, compared with Uardinerism, if the latter
prove an itm at aU; and aa for Tylerism, we
believe the desertion of the friends who ele
vated him by that gentleman, and his taking
up with those who came to him in the day of his
prosperity, constitute a oaso not wholly unpre
cedented in modern history. The honorable
Secretury of the Interior, "Mr. Stuart, hus
avowed substantially the suane rule of conduct.
We of course do not object to it, and simply
state the fact for the saka of historical accu
Ma. Fillmore.?The New York Herald says:
"According to appearances, the Whigs of Vir
ginia are in favor of Mr. Fillmore as their can
didate for the Presidency at the next election,
lhere is no doubt that the present incumbent
of the national executive chair will be a promi
nent candidate for the same office, in the elec
tion of 1852."
tal amount of contributions received at the
office during the month of September was
?$3,019 73.
Democrats or New York City.?The Herald,
of yesterday, states that on Monday evening
the Democrats held a meeting in Tammany Hall
lor the purpose of endorsing the resolutions
adopted, and the candidates nominated, by the
Democratic State Convention at Syracuse. It
was very harmonious and; enthusiastic. The
factions, which heretofore were so hostile to
each other, met together on the same platform,
and were as friendly as if they never had any
Names.?Would that it were possible to give
to every city, county, town, and village in our
country some good original name?some signifi
cant Indian name as a general thing. The re
vival of old classio names, or the selection of
names elsewhere appropriated, is inconvenient,
and not unfrequently suggestive of a ludicrous
comparison. We have just rqad in the Mayes
ville l'ost Boy as follows:
tl.JfV0? "Citize.n" of yesterday furnishes
the following synopsis of the Rev. Mr. Robin
son s address before the Bourbon Agricultural
Thuik of this, away off" by tho side of the
O-HI-O, (The Bright and Beautiful !) Where
such a name is given to a river, ought not
names for towns and counties to be sought in
the same poetical language ? By such a course
the word nete, that has assumed the office of a
diminutive in our vocabulary, might be wholly
dispensed with. We remember on one day di
recting letters to four poBt offices in the South
ern States, viz : Rome, Athens, Panhandle,
and Polecat Village. Tho latter two had the
merit of originality, but the former were by
association rendered the more ridiculous!
Return ot a United States Diplomatic
Aoent.?We notice in the New York papers of
yesterday an announcement of the arrival in
the Baltic of Mr. Joseph Balestier, who was
sent by tien. Taylor's government in 1849 to
effeet friendly and commercial relations with I
Cochin China, Siam, Borneo, and the Malayan
A Nuisance.?We lmve been requested by a
number of persons, doing business in the
Northern Liberty Market, to call attention to
the disorderly conduct of a number of boys, from
fifteen to eighteen years of age, who are in the
habit of assembling there during the night mar
ket, insulting ladies, and stealing harness from
the horses, &c.
Excursion!?To-morrow the excursion of the
William Selden will take place. This is a most
delightful season for Buch a trip, and the W. S.
is just such a boat as every one will delight to
sail in. There will be a goodly company and a
pleasant lira*. Look to it?read the advertise

General ftcott'a Letter.
The New York Timet states that some few
months since a gentleman of Pennsylvania, at
the request of eight members of the State Sen
ate, wrote a letter to Gen. Wihfiield Scott,
addressing him as the undoubted Whig candi
date for the Presidency, and requesting his
opinions upon the various political questions
1 which have agitated the country.
j General Scott wrote the following quaint re
Sin: I have received your letter, (marked
" confidential,") in which, after committing the
j error of supposing me to be " fully before the
i country as the Whig candidate for the Presi
| dency," you proceed to interrogate me on many
points of grave public interest.
Permit me to say that, considering wc shall
probably only have a Whig candidate for the
Presidency through a National Convention, and
that I cannot be its nominee except by the force
of the unsolicited partiality of large masses of
my countrymen:
Considering, also, that if my character or
principles be not already known, it would now |
be idle to attempt to supply the deficient infor
mation by mere paper professions of wisdom
and virtue, made for the occasion:
And considering that, if I answer your que
ries, I must go on and answer others already
before me, as well as the long series that would
inevitably follow, to the disgust of the public?
1 will beg permission to close this acknowl
edgment of your letter by subscribing myself,
With great respect, your obedient servant,
Winfikld Scott.

thing, on public subjects, which 1 am unwilling
to see published. W. S.

Clarke Mills' Statue of Jackson. The
Charleston Mercury, in announcing that the
equestrian statue of General Jackson is rapidly
approaching completion, and will probably be
ready for elevation-on its pedestal by the first
of January next, says:
"Although not born in this city, Mr. Mills
has resided among us since his childhood, and
looks upon it as his home, as his amiable lady
and four interesting children still contiuue to
live among us. Charleston may, therefore, be
excused in feeling a lively gratification at the
success of his labors, which have plaoed him
in the front rank of sculptors, and given him
at the early age of thirty-eight, a reputation
usually attained, even by the most fortunate
only after a long life of toil and application.
Ihe statue of Jackson is of colossal dimen
sions, and is remarkeble in its being self-poised
on the hind feet of the horse, differing in this
respect from all the equestrian statues of for
mer artists, which have been made to keep their
P^8'tl,?? by acce8aories that> in some degree,
j offend the eye of the spectator.
" The statue of Jackson, though tho most re
markable, is far from being the only proof Mr 1
Mills has given of high and original genius!
and a long future of fame and fortune seems !
now to have opened before him, which it will'
be hie own fault if he does not realix?.'*
The Whkelino Bridge.?The importance of
the long-contested " Wheeling Bridge Case " is
but little understood throughout tho country.
1 A writer in the Philadelphia Ledger thus ex
plains it :
" Four railroads are in progress through the
State of Ohio, which, in the course of two
years, or less, will meet together on the west!
bank of the Ohio river, at Wheeling. The first
and most important of these four roads is the
Central Road of Ohio, which forms part of the
great line from 8t Louis to Philadelphia. The
second, in commercial value, is the Cincinnati
and Marietta road, which is intended to draw
the trade of southern Ohio and Kentucky to
Wheeling, to pass thence by the Hempfield road
to 1 hiladelphia. The third is the Clevelaud and
Hellsville road?a line running in a direct
course from Cleveland, on Lake Erie, to the
Ohio river, five miles below Wcllsville?which
will shortly be continued on thirty-six miles
further to Wheeling. The fourth is the Steu
benville and Indiana road, which will pass
through Coshocton, and strike the Ohio river
between Wheoling and Steubenville.
" The trade of these four lines of railroads
| will thus be concentrated at Wheeling. The
Iiempfield railroad, starring at Wheeling, where 1
these four western lines come together will I
bring forward the trade and travel which they
bear, to the Pennsylvania railroad at Greens
burg. All this trade and travel must cross the
Ohto on the Wheeling bridge, which was originally
constructed with a view to its adaptation to this I
great duty. Now, it will he recollected that !
tor the purpose of preventing the trade of Phil- j
adelphia from crossing the Ohio at Wheeling
and forcing all the western business of this citv :
through Pittsburg, a suit has been instituted in
the name of the State of Pennsylvania, under
the sanction of the Legislature, for the over- ;
throw of that bridge, if this suit should pre- !
vail, then Philadelphia must rely on ferries to
get her trade and travel over the Ohio or, as
an alternative, go round the great northern bend
of the Ohio, through Pittsburg. She must sus
tain this bridge, or get all the trade of the West
and Southwest which she can then command,
through Pittsburg, and Pittsburg only."
Tns New J braky Hank Excitement.?A let
ter in the Herald states that the failure of the
"People's llank" in New Jersey, which has of
course swindled a given number of operatives
in the neighborhood of Paterson, has produced
considerable excitement in that community.
About three thousand persons assembled on the
2ttth inst. in front of the bank, and passed a reso
lution requesting the Chancellor to appoint two
receivers whom the people had confidence in.
They then adjourned to the residence of the
Cashier, and burnt him in effigy. From thence
they went to the residence of the President, and
paid him a like compliment; thence to Mr. James
Jackson's, a director, and honored him likewise
with the same compliment, and then adjourned
quietly to their homes. The account Bays:
"The President, David llurnett, is an elder of
the 1st Presbyterian Church; the Cashier, H. C.
Stimson, is head man in the Second Presbyte
rian Church, and Director Jackson is a class
leader of the Methodist Church."
In giving the religions character of these
men, the writer omits to say whether it is for
the purpose of explaining why they failed, or
making it app?ar wonderful that they should
fail. Perhaps, as a religious man, he submits
the fact as a curious one.
