The fifth number of this able, dignified, ami
highly interesting weekly paper was ?'e ou
Saturday last. Though a literary and J
laneous paper, the feature that pum-'P
characterizes it is its devotion to the cause
African Colonization, than which no more
benevolent, philanthropic, and patriotic scheme
Las ever been presented to the American people.
And yet this cause has few ardent and enthu
siastic supporters, who are willing and eager
to bestow of their wealth in furtherance of its
objects. Its friends arc intelligent and reflect
ing men, who look carefully to the great result
of their laborj rather than with a levcrish
anxiety to the present means of its advance
ment, and the controversies and other concom
itants attending its progress. But there is no
great class, no party, no interested persons, no
set of public journals, to whom the publishers
may look for aid. We therefore make an un
solicited uud voluntary appeal in their behalf to
OL-K BBBTUBES 0>" TUB l'RESS throughout tllO
United States, and ask them to examine the
Statesman for themeel.es, and to speak ol it
and its objects to their readers as they severally
deserve. Its editors, the Rev. R. R. Gublky
and Daniel 11. Goodloe, nre gentlemen ol the
highest character, both of them possessing in
an eminent degree the confidence, respect, and
good will of the people 01' this community, and
of the country, and both writers of acknowl
edged ability. They also entertain sound na
tional sentiments, such as will meet a response,
we r.re rejoiccd to know, in every homestead
throughout the land, save wliero the excitement
of a transitory controversy lias cast a shadow
over the clearer views by which our country
men are wont to be guided.
Read the following, which we quote from the
editorial columns of this paper. It is brief,
but illustrative of the temper of the Slatexinan
eucli an appoal, in fact, as should be made as
often as once a week to every fatni'y within the
limits of our wide-spread Republic.
The Union.?Few, if any, over-estimate the
importance to the whole race of man of the
Union of the States of this Republic. This im
portance seems too obvious to require illustra
tion and can hardly be made clearer by argu
ment The dangers to which the Union may
be exposed lie not, in our judgment, in any
opposition of interests between uny of its sec
tions, nor in the variety and contrariety of
opinions which may arise among our widespread i
population, but solely iu those prejudices and i
passions which, unduly regulated and excited,
sometimes overthrow all the bulwarks of wis- !
doin and, like a conflagration, involve our very
homes aud dearest interests in ruin. The great
object of the Union, as declared in our Constitu
tion, was to insure domestic tranquillity and
promote the general welfare; aud since it is
maintained by no armed force, but rendered
strong only by the consciences and hearts of the
people, so nothing can endanger its perpetuity
but the decay of popular affection for its princi
ples aud the high results which they are embo
died to secure. It is uot to Congress nor to State
Legislatures, not to proclamations nor public de
bates not to unity of opinion, even, on all great
questions of private or public duty, that we
must look for the stability of the Union, but to
the calm deep, virtuous motives of individuals, |
ready, even at great bacrifices, to advance great j
public ends, disposed to take counsel from the
nuiet majesty of the reason, and awe into si
lence aU the tumult aud fury of the passions.
It is to the minds of individuals who believe in
Providence, who are under law to God, who re
gard our institutions and our Union as ordained
not less by Divine than human wisdom for the
good order and peace, and enduring liberty and ,
welfare of this nation, and, through us, to shed
light upon all the nations of the world, that we |
look for that candor and forbearance, that pro- !
found reflection and all-comprehending charity, j
that love of justice and of all mankind, which. |
once prevalent among our citizens, will leave no
place within the wide circuit of the republic for
"hatred or for discord, and make our Union im
perishable. Our confidence is mainly in Him
who brought our fathers to these shores, who
has so protected them in war, increased and
prospered them in peace, so enriched and ex
alted them, and, above all, instructed so many
ol us to regard the eternal truths and laws of
Christianity as His last, clearest revelation? I
our inextinguishable light, and never-wasting

There is, probably, no public man in the
United States more popular in this city than
the able, agreeable, and gentlemanly Senator
from Illinois. He iB emphatically a man of the
people?unostentatious, practical, and intelli
gent, his intercourse with our citizens is un
restrained and familiar, yet ever dignified, and
mutually respectful. We believe, indeed, that
the first suggestions of his nomination lor the
Presidency originated here, where his public ,
and private career arc as familiar as household ?
words to us all. His strength and popularity,
also, are well-measured by the politicians of
this city; in evidence of which, we submit the
following from the editorial columns of the
Rrpublit, of this morning:
"Senator Douglas is at the A<?tor House, in
the city of New York. He appears to be mov
ing in earnest, and we should advise his rival
Democratic aspirants for the Presidency to be
looking about them. Now we henr of him at
his birth-place in Vermont, telling the sover
eigns of the fashion in which he will carry on
Cabinet making. Next we see him at Saratoga,
the observed of all observers, hob-a-nobbing
with all creation, and winning golden opinions
from all sorts of people. Anon, he is at 1 am
manv Hall, pouring oil on the agitated waters
of Democracy. Then he turns up at the agri
cultural fair of the Empire State, and astonishes
the farmers by his talk about crops and cat
tle; and a day or two afterwards he is at
another fair in Ohio; and now dividing the ca
resses of Barnburners and Old Hunkers at the
Astor House. We should not be surprised if
the celerity of his movements, and the success
of his operations, should embarrass Mr. Bu
chanan and Mr. Cass very seriously. It looks
?cry much as if he were spreading his nets
wide; and if he does not catch as many larks
when the skies fall as most any one of his
Democratic friends, it will not be his fault."
We do not know how far Mr. Buchanan and
Mr. Cass may become embarrassed by the cele
rity of the movements of Mr. Douglas, but we
think a leap into the White House with a little
assistance from bis republican fellow-citizens
may very likely Boon prove quite embarrassing
to its present occupant and some of Lis friends,
sliould any such be found in tht day of bis ad
Mr*. Toi)ln??n.
Sixty-seven Hungarians in the city of New
York have published a card in the Tribuv \ with
their names subscribed, in which they denounce
oneDe Alma, "formerly a lieutenant in the Bava
rian army," as a willing instrument of European
tyrants, who " 1-ong obtruded himself on the
Hungarian refugees," and "never took part in
the struggle for Hungarian freedom." They
" De Ahn-i came to New York, where he 1ms
certain compai.ions entirely worthy of him,
who joined with him to obtain, by bribery of
t.'ie .Hungarians, false charges against Mrs. Ap
pollonia Tochman, (born Jagiello,) a lady who,
during the Hungarian struggle for freedom, de
served well of the cau.se. llis proposals, as
might be supposed, were rejected with indigna
tion, until at last ho found a person in a Ger
man named Koelbel, who, in point of charac
ter, was on a level with himself. De Ahna had
the means of inducing Koelbel to present an
entirely unfounded charge against the charac
ter oi* the lady above mentioned. The value of
a testimony obtained in this way can easily be
estimated, when it is known that the author
They ^peak of Mrs. Tochman ns having "ob
tained the most general esteem in Hungary as
the superintendent of the Coinorn hospital, for
her self-devotion, her skili, and her noble dis
interestedness." They pronounce the state
ments ?jf Dc Ahna " vile calumnies," and declare
that they are persuaded, from their own knoul
edye, that " Mrs. Appollooia Tochman has laid
tha Hungarian nation under the obligations
above mentioned, as well as many others, and
They conclude with the following appeal to
"the calumniated lady:"
" May you continue, xioblc Pole, as a martyr
of freedom, to discharge the lofty mission for
the relief of your fellow-sufferers in exile. In
Hungary, you have strengthened the defenders
of freedom in their zeal and devotion; you have
taken care of the wounded among them; and
now, far from your beloved fatherland, it is
your noble lot to alleviat e their sufferings/'

The Amateur Dramatic Association.?We
learn that an association bearing the above title
has been formed in this city. The object is to
improve the young men in dramatic oratory?a
laudable one. We like all associations of the
kind; lor they not only improve the members
in public speaking, teaching them the different
and pleasing positions, emphasis, and proper
gestures of the stage?impressing upon their
minds highly useful precepts anu maxims which
otherwise would not be done upon a casual
reading, or representation of a play ; bnt they
also awaken the latant ambition in them, which,
once aroused, seldom stops till it reaches the
highest pinnacle of fame. By reference to
another column it will be seen that the society
holds a meeting this (Monday) evening, to
which all persons wishing to join an association
of the kind are invited to attend. We Lope
the young men of our city will join while they
have now an opportunity, as we learn that the
number tc be admitted is limited by their con
The above has been handed to us for publi
cation, and we comply with the wishes of its
writer?under protest, however, that we regard
the fascinations of the Btnge as among the most
unfortunate with which a youth can be infatu
ated, and all the improvement derivable from
a Thespian society as dearly purchased in time
and money, and sadly detrimental to useful and
honorable progress in life. They who arc now
commencing such nn enterprise are, no doubt,
guided by the best intentions; but the best in
tentions of youth hardly afford as sure a path
way as the experience of maturer years.
Railroad Accidents.?The following analy
sis of the accidents occurring on railroads from
causes which may be avoided by proper care on
the part of the passengers, is taken from a
work recently published in London, entitled
j " Lardner'a Railway Economy." Its publica
tion ought to have a good effect in this country.

The (steamship Prometheus arrived at New
York on Saturday last, from San Juan, whence
she left on the 2Gth ultimo. She brings intelli
gence from California to New York in twenty
eight (lays?the shortest time on record. The
Nicuragua route being now proved to be the
shortest, as well as the safest and most heulthy,
will unquestionably be the route f&r the great
travelling public, and also for the United States
mail, in a very short time.
The Prometheus brings four hundred pas
sengers and one million of dollars in gold on
The advices from San Francisco are to the
Gth ultimo. The Stato and Congressional elec
tions had taken placo, but returns enough to
make the cxact result known had not been re
ceived. In San Francisco the Whigs carried
every ward of the city but one. The Whig
majority in San Francisco was about one thou
sand votes. The Democratic majority in Sac
ramento city and county was four hundred.
We select from tho account of the election
which we find in tho New York Herald, of yes
terday, the following summary:
"The election seems to have absorbed every
thing else. The returns, as far as received,
though in the main imperfect, from the coun
j ties of San Francisco, Sacramento, Yolo, Ne
vada, El Dorado, Solano, Marin, Tuolumne,
San Joaquin, Calaveras, and Santa Clara, give
I l'earse JJ. Heading (Whig) a majority over John
Bigler (Dem.) of about 1,000, and tho balance
of the State ticket from GOO to 800. The
counties of Mendocino, Napa, Klamath, Trinity,
Shasta, Los Angeles, San Luis Obispo, Santa
Barbara, and Santa Cruz will give Heading at
least 5,000 majority. This puts his election
beyond the possibility of a doubt; and the
same vote will elect, the most of the State
In the same summary, there is a conjecturc
that the Democrats have carried the Legisla
ture ; but if the foregoing summary be.correct,
we should presume that the Whigs had carried
the Legislature, and one, at least, of the two
Representatives to Congress. This, in our
opinion, would be a legitimate inference. The
actual result, however, will be known iu some
two or three weeks?possibly by the next arri
val from Chagres.
The mining news is favorable. A destructive
i tire occurred at Marysville on August 30th,
| consuming eighty buildings in the business part
of the city. The loss is stated at $500,000.
The Indians were very troublesome. Be
tween Sacramento and Salt Lake several emi
grants had been killed, and the mail riders had
also been attacked.
Two men, McKenzie and Whittaker, had been
executed at San Francisco, and two executions
had taken place rt Sacramento. In other re
spects, matters had been comparatively quiet.
Itobinson, who was reprieved by the Governor,
had been hung by the people.
The markets geneially were quiet. A brisk
trade was anticipated in a few days, it being
the season for minors to lay in their winter
stores. Flour was active at $10 50 @ $12 00;
corn $3 @ $3 50; corn meal $7 50; mess
pork $15; elcar do. $17; hams $20; lard $14;
butter 25 40 cents; cheese 10 @ 15 cents.
Boots and shoes were abundant, and clothing
generally dull.
The steamer Tennessee left San Francisco on
the 1st for Panama with $1,700,000 in gold,
and the Constitution with $100,000. The for
| mer had two hundred and fifty, and the latter
| one hundred and twenty passengers.
The above advices were brought to San Juan
by the steamer Pacific, which arrived at that
place on tho 20th ultimo, with two hundred and
twenty-five passengers and $100,000 in gold.
Tho North American left San Juan for San
Francisco on the 20th, with two hundred and
lifty passengers. Tho General Hunter left for
the same place on the21st. It is reported that
the propeller Lafayette was entirely destroyed j
by fire in the harbor of Chagres on the 11th. !
Iler cargo was partially saved.
The DeAuna Case.?The parlies in tins case '
appeared before Justices Morsell and Goddard
at noon to-day, to hear the final decision re
specting the amount of security to be given for
the appearance of De Ahna before the Criminal
Court, to answer to the second charge of slander
made by Major Tochman, on behalf of himself
and lady. The bond was fixed at one thousand
dollars, five hundred having been given on the
former charge. Dr. Magruder entered on the
bond as 6urety.
W^ter D. Davidge, esq., for the prosecution,
moved that he might bo permitted to file with
the affidavit of Major Tochmnn certain other
affidavits. This motion was opposed by E. C.
Morgan and T. Barton Key, esqs., counsel for
the prisoner, who alleged that they would only
agree to opening the case for this purpose on
condition that a like privilege bo extended to
all parties, of introducing new matter at dis
cretion. Tho sitting magistrates overruled the
motion of Mr. Davidge.
A Villain.?We yesterday saw one of the
most unprincipled scamps that ever disgraced
this city walking through the streets with two
apparently respectable young ladies.?Boston j
Thus the Bee commences its denunciation of
a bad man; but we quote the above lines in
honor of tho women of America. It is a just
matter of surprise that the "apparently re
spectable young ladies" should be found in the
company of a dishonest and unprincipled man.
Women are our true reformers; they have it in
their power to fix the standards of honor and
morality, below which men dare not venture.

reading in Washington would prove attractive.

In the midst of the uncertainties of this
world, these conclusive indications must be very
gratifying to our most worthy President. A
condition of doubt on so important a matter is
always annoying, and often leads to vacilla
tion of purposo and general irresolution. Mr.
Fillmore, now that he knows he is right, has
nothing to do but "go ahead." He hath

Steamboat* and Hating.
VTKS8B8. EDITORS: A statement appeared in t)i?
-KatiotuU InUUiyencer of tliu 3d iiiat., signed Job
Corson, (which said Corson knew at the time to be false,)
that the Washington beat Capt. Page's brag boat, the Wil
liam golden, one wile in twenty-six minutes running,
on the preceding day, and can beat her at any time, Per
haps X do not understand his mode of trying the speed of
| l>oalij, as 1 am not an old boat-builder, or an experienced
| captain. lie may liavo some new way of heating that 1
Jo not know of. If he means that he beat tho Selden on
j last Thursday, while making an excursion trip to A quia
Creek, ho is ccrtaiuly mistaken, as ho knew that the ad
vertisement stated that there would not be auy steamboat
racing. IJ0 (Corson) did know that tho Selden was not
trying for speed, (if ho counted her revolutions, which he
says he did;) she was ouly making eighteen to twenty
revolutions while he was passing, and wo had only twenty
eight to thirty inches steam, which 1 can prove. lie knew
that the Selden could make twenty-oight to thirty revolu
tions with ease; ho knew that there would be no racing
on that occasion on the part of the Selden; ho took tho op
portunity to run his brag New York boat by the Seidell,
as it would be the only opportunity, and then cry
out " beat!" This will not do, Air. Corson; you might as
well claim a boat of tho Seidell when she is tied to tho
wharf, and you then run by her. The distance you run
in your twenty-six minutes, from the rope walk to the
I'ort, can be run by the old Pheenix iu twenty-six min
I utes. The Selden can and has run it in less than fourteen
I minutes the Champion in sixteen minutes. You must
have been mistaken iu looking at your watch; you must
have got along a littlo faster, Mr. Corson, for tho Selden
was not over fifteen minutes in running from where you
started to where you turned your boat round, by the re
quest of your engineer, as he states that he feared she
would break down or burst her boiler with eighty pounds
stsain on her, and God only knows how much more
than eighty pounds there was, as he had turned tho cock
that connects the steam with tho steam-gauge, and thus no
one knew how muoh steam there was on her. 1 think peo
ple ought to be careful how they risk their lives with such
reckless steamiDg. 1 certainly shall not carry more than
forty-five pounds of steam, if the Selden is beat. TJie
engineer, Mr. Ubon, said her engine was jumping off her
kelsons, which was the reason of their turning about. I
supposed that wo should have had thom at the creek, ac
cording to their advertisement in the Baltimore Sun the
>day before, which was circulated on the morning of the
1 excursion, just in time to prevent the people knowingany
l etter than that there would be a race that day. It was
too late for mo to contradict what you had published, and
I tlit consequence was wo had a very small company,
j Notwithstanding the advertisement for tho excursion
j stated there would be no race, this part of the|transaetion
j beats all tho rascality I have seen practised for many a
I day, as it not only deprived many a person from enjoying
| .i pleasant excursion, but put tho company to consider
? "W'' expense without accomplishing their object. It also
j put me to considerable expense and trouble, without bon
! efiting either Corson or the company,
j Now, Mr. Job, wo will start fair, if you will have a little
patience, (which you ought to have.) I will, as soon a*
my boat is finishtd and put in good running order,
give you another chance for repairs, (or I will have one
myself,) and beat you more than I did when tho New
York maiden was ushered into the waters of tho Poto
mac from the upjier ten thousand, which it seems you
cannot forget or swallow. It is a bitter pill, but you must
take it; and I must go further to prove what I have said :
If you or your ownor liavo a few thousand dollars to spare,
it will be covered on tho issue.
