UNITED STATES MAIL S 1" E A M SHIP COMPANY?THROUGH PASSAGE TO j CALIFORNIA. i TPH E public will be gratified to learn that the I United States Mail Steamship Company are enabled to announce that their arrangements are now complete for sending passengers through from New York to Sun Francisco and back. In the first attempts of this Company to meet the wants of travel to California, by providing ships on the Pacific, in connection with their shins from New York to Chagres, they were prevailed upon, at the urgent solicitation of the great number then desirous to go out, to sell tickets fqr tlirough passages from Panama in advance, for their ships then going round. This was done from a desire to accommodate those who could procure passages in no other quarter, and by which, whatever might be the detention, they would reach San Francisco sooner than by any I other line. Unforeseen difficulties, attd the preva lence of fever at Rio de Janeiro nt the time, prevented their ships from reaching Panama as soon as anticipated, and caused detention at the isthmus, which was increto-ed by the impatience of passengers in going forward, against the udiice of the Company, at an earlier day than the ship could possibly reach Panama. These interruptions are now nil removed. Three of the four ships of the Company, intended for the Pacific service, have arrived n't Panama, and several of them have performed trips to San Francisco and back.' So that the Company arc now aide to give the public the assurance that the voyage through from New York to San Francisco, will be performed with regularity and despatch. Their Pacific Line, from Panama to San Fran- j cisco, consists of the i REPUBLIC, Capt. Hudson. [ ITHMUS. Capt. Hitchcock. COLUMBUS, Capt. Peck. ANTELOPE, Capt. Acki.et.

[ * ' From the flarl/ord (Conn.) Republican. Yale Phi Beta Kappa Society and Hon. Wm. H. Sewaiid.?A certain W. T. Gould, who writes from Litchfield to the Hartford Courant, says he is "a Mr. Gould of Georgia," hut that he was not present at the meeting where objection was made to Hon. Win. II. Seward. Mr. W. T. Gould in correct, and the Southern ] ' Press must revise its laudation of the " spirited [Georgian." Our informant was mistaken as to ; the name of the Chivalrtc Southron, who threatened down the proposition to elect Mr. Seward ! Orator for 1851. This individual wns a stranger I to our informant, who was told that he wns "a ! Mr. Gould of Georgia." He wus a stranger to 1 manv others at the meeting, it seem*. We learn I that he was a South Carolinian,?a certain " Judge j Cone." I Let his name bo what it will, the fact, (exceptI ing the name) is as we stated it.1 The Southern Press quotes this fuel, prefacing it as follows:? "A very significant indication of the sentiment throughout New England was recently given at Yale College, and an appeal to the ' pocket nerve' ! from a spirited Georgian alone prevented the sei lection of this man as the Anniversary Orator of j that Institution." The Press here quotes what we stated conceru! ing the balloting for Mr. Seward, and concludes ' thus: ! "It is a favorite maxim of a sagacious politicinn, "that one fact is worth a thousand arguments;" and the simple statement of such facts ?itweights any quantity of blarney. Let our Northern brethren be judged by their acts, not their professions." Now it is a pity to disturb this hopeful ntood j of the Southern Press, which appears to assume t that the Chivalry have their "Northern brethren" \ under bonds to behave well. But we must not ' suffer it to feed its hope on a delusion. ! In the first place, the Phi Beta Kappn Society | is not Yale College; neither does it represent "the | :;entiment throughout New England." It is a soj ciety of College graduates, old and young, who reside in all parts of the country, j In the second place, that Phi Beta Kuppu SociI ety, after allowing that impertinent Southron to i prevent the election of Mr. Seward, hnd a "sober i second thought" and become mindful that thpre : are some other people in the country besides the slaveholders. The result was that it elected Rev. I John Pierpont its poet for 1851. We were not | aware of this, when we gave our renders that first .it iitemerif we received it. from our informant. ' Neither wan he aware of it at the time. Mr. Pierpont's opinions on the slavery question are not only "extreme"' in the same direction as Mr. Seward's; hut they are considerably "more no." We hope the editor of the Southern Preen will keep cool over this fact, and not allow himself to dissolve the Union until the Phi Beta Kappa Society has a chance to apologize for this ' I encouragement to the horrible sift of anti-slavery. J ' Please delay the dissolution; Hiid if meanwhile , you keep lip a terrible pitch pine blaze and talk ferociously, it may be that "our Xoithern bretli- ; i ren" will be bo scared as to behave better. Bt'll Fight iv Maprid.?The last bull light I here was extremely fertile in incidents. Besides , the ordinary number of horses killed, and pica- ' dores bruised, a municipal guard was gored to I death, and the celebrated bull fighter, named Ha-! ' banero, hud his skull cleft. The municipal guard 1 was on duty outside the barrier, when a bull, one j ; of the famous breed belonging to the Duke ofVeragua (the lineal descendant of Christopher Columbus,) rushed against the barrier, Lroke it down, and tossed the unfortunate soldier into the 1 air twice, each time goring him in a manner that would have let out twenty lives if he had them. ti - ir.i Tl,? i x rie nwjnncro is unc vi mc p.v?wwiw, ??iv hor?e tliat he mounted was raised from the earth i witli him upon it, by the same bull, and thrown against the narrier with fearful violence.

From the Arkansas Gaiettt. Interesting Letter from Lieu. Cue. We give place, with pleasure, to the following correspondence: Washington, Aug. 24th, ltL'iO. Messrs. Editors: I heard a few days since of the denth of Levin H. One. Many knew him, his line mind, his una. Ifish and intrepid nature. 11 in loss ik incalculable,his death 1 heard announced with a depth of pain 1 had not expected to experience for one no much a stranger to myself. In turning over my papers this evening, I lay my hand upon a letter of his which 1 now enclose. It is not inappropriate that it should lie given to the public. It is n voice, a patriotic and a manly voice, as it were from the tomb. It is the answer of the noble and the single hearti d, to the ninny letters published with such pains to break down the spirits of the South, [ through opinions of broken down politicians and hungry expectants, grasping at every invitation or permission to cast themselves at any cost, once i more into the broad and corrupt, but to thent enI vied politicul arena. If all men had spoken as he speaks, who supposes the North would have refused us equal rights | in our common territory ? As it is, we are almost I certain to he excluded. Who supposes California I would have been admitted with our territory, I South of 3t>30 embraced in it? And that all our | territory would have been left subject to Mexican emancipation laws, and to the intrigues of government officials and army officers ? But as it is, our doom is sealed in my opinion on all these point*. We have thanks to give for it to many; but none such nit Levin H. Coe, are in that rank. Posterity will reap the fruit, and in twenty-five years their verdict will he legible in the insignificance of Southern power and the loss of Southern rights, and the insecurity of Southern property. Compromise indeed ! Mr. Clay himself declured in my hearing, mid at his sent in open Senate, that it gurr all to the North, and the compromise to the South, was, as lie expressed it, that it alloircd the South to save her honor ! Honor is something to nakedness, but nakedness is not honorable. By Mr. Clay's own written declaration, he is for emancipation in Kentucky (a slave Stute) and by his own emnbatie, sneech this session, no enri.hlv j power can force his consent to any step which shall extend slavery over a foot of new territory So he is against the extension of slavery, where it is not r.ow ; and he is for its abrogation where it now is. Could an abolitionist go further than goes Mr. Clay? And yet wt* shout out for Mr. Cluy's Compromise. Your friend, It. W. JOHNSON. Memphis, Feb. 12, 1850.

I should do injustice to my own feelings if I were not [ promptly to advise you that I fully and cordially I approve all your views and sentiments contained therein. The subject you speak of is one I have i watched long and anxiously. Would to God every son of the South would speak promptly and speak as you have done. Much us I desire the continued union of the States, 1 am no blind devotee. I cannot buy its continuance at the cost of degradation to us, and ruin to our children. It is better to crush the hydra of abolition before it grows strong enough to destroy us. The Misf . :< ,?i.i c. oimiii viMii|?umiioc,?n u in wimciy uuihi, iuiu irai fully against die South. It Was a stab that sunk deep into our vitals. The old political fornicator who was the author of it, and whose face is still to the North for the presidency, has, I see, introduced what he calls a new compromise project. There is nothing of compromise in it; to say there is, is a base fraud. ' It is a plain oiler to deliver us, bound hand and foot, upon the altar of Northern fanaticism, our necks bared for the knife. You deal justly with those who cast opprobrium upon us by disclaiming against African slavery as an evil in the abstract. It is no business of the people of the North whether this be right or wrong. White slavery exists nt the North?black at the South. We might, with truth, retort that ours is far the more mild. The doctrine of non intervention as shadowed forth by Mr. Clay don't suit the I times or the emergency. It might have answered before Missouri was udmitted, not since. That compromise forced upon us, as an interpolation upon the Constitution produced effects that must be looked to. It ordered that slavery should not go North of SIP 3(1*. The statesmen of that day who submitted to this,must render u fearful reckoning to posterity. But to blame them now will not I remedy the evil. Our object is self-preservation j for the future, nnd, in attempting this, we have as i best we can to remedy the blundering of the past. The South should demand in absolute terms: j 1st. Efficientand sure means for the recovery of I our fugitive slaves. 2d. No further agitation of | slavery on the slave trade in the District or between I the Stutes. 3d. Thutull territory south of 36? 30' shall be slave territory and slave .Stales. This, of course involves t lie rejection of the pretended constitution of California. If these be not conceded to us, we have but one course to pursue?meet the crisis as becomes men. We act the part of fools to let the chains forging for us, be fastened upon us link by link. We are better able now to maintain S uthern rights and Southern honor, than our children will be 20 years i hence, when borne to earth by the accumulated j wrongs we may have submitted to. A confiscation of nil debts owing the North by southern States and people, and free trade to us with the world,would soOn cause even the fanatics to confess thnt the Union with the South which their aggressions had broken, was of value to the North. Very respectfully, L. II. COE. An Eccewtr'c aim Bachelor.?We find in the <trl?,.no r. ? ..CO,,. III. I. .. dated Woodbridge, N. J., July 5th, 111 which we find the following singular account of an eccentric [ old bachelor :? An old bachelor has lately died in this place, I leaving a fortune of $80,000. From what we learn of , him he must be one of the most eccentric and euriI ous chaps that ever lived. His clot' eirupon being ; taken off were separately folded in paper and were j never a.lowed the sight of the brush, a silk kandj kerchief answering every purpose. Should he be in the road and spy a wagon in the distance, he would run for his life, for fear that i that a speck of dust should chance to fiy upon j him. The village belles have enjoyed many a | laugh at him when returning from church to see him take to his heels and run at the sight of a car-; riage or a cloud of dust, and although he would take no notice of them at the time, yet they were not fogotten. He always endeavored to keep as clear of the ladies as possible and particularly the i widows, whom he looked upon as something very j dreadful, and was never caught walking in the j road with one ifhe knew it. With all hin oddities, he was miserly to a cent, j and would often be seen at the stores exchanging a quarter of a dollar for twenty-five pennies,there-' hy saving n copper on every twenty-five. These he would not take either without examining every , one to see whether it woe not bad, rusty, or something else. Many of the articles he bought was by the penny's worth, and hence his great use for ! that .particular coin, when he came to the last nennv of his bundle it was wrunned in two nieces of paper find laid away. Thus lived this curious old man, and when he approached death 'a door he wm aa odd aa ever. | He could not bear the idea of any oneaeeing him, ' or entering his clothes, aiep on his shoes, or do some other damage, and in this state he died, "unwept, unpilied and uncurcd for," although worth a fortune of $80,000, The Washington telegraph reports announce the calling ot'a disunion convention InGot*. Towns of Georgia, giving nil the particulars, as though it Was really an important affair. Silence i* the best way to treat the matter, and pity is tho only proper fooling to indulge towards the poor blind deluded mortals engaged in gettingun tho Convention.

Pbnsacola, Florida, Alio 24,1850. To General Samuel F. Cary and others:? Gentlemen?1 am honored by the receipt of your letter of the 4th ulL,in which you tender to me a sword as an evidence of your appreciation of my services as an officer of the United States, in several wars with the Indians and with the Republic of Mexico. The appropriation of his countrymen, is justly esteeiyed the highest reward, which a public servant enn receive for his services, and such a reward is richly enhanced when bestowed, unbidden, by that portion of my fellow-citizens, who have known him longer and best, and whose names are Hasoetaieu witu ins earliest una lumpiest recollections. It is with unfeigned fl deep emotion, that 1 recognize among tire donors of this token of yoi.r regard and approbation, the names of playmates of my ehiluhoAd, schoolmates, of my boyhood, of those who cherished and directed with their christian wisdom, tlie vague aspiration of my youth, and of those who encouraged me to advance, when pausing on the slippery threshhold of active life ; a host of friends whose good opinion alone, is a reward far above my humble merits, and to retain whose esteem, will be the highest ii-.cent.ive, to the continued discharge of the arduous duties of my profession. Re aasimd then, gentlemen, that the sword you have presented me, is received and valued above price, as a token of your approval of my past career. It shall bo kept, unsullied, through I my future life, and often will I look upon it to encourage mo in the aim to continue to the end such a course as to deserve your generous esteem. With nty whole heart T thank yon and am j gratefully and verv respectful I v, your obedient servant, HUBERT C. CALDWELL. | Rotntv Land Bill.?The passage of the bill granting bounty land to officers and soldiers of the lust war with Great Britain, and the several Indian wars, is giving rise to an unprecedented number of applicants to the Third Auditor's Otliue for information. It is deemed advisable to state that copies of the. army rolls cannot be furnished from this office, for various reasons; one of which is sufficient, namely, the utter impracticability of doing so. If one agent has a right to copies of the rolls.! j so would twenty thousand ; and all the clerks I I in the employ of the Government could not] j lumish such copies. Resides, there is no nuthoj ritv for doing so. All applications must pas^ ! through the Pension Office, (under the direction i J of the Secretary of the Interior.) and regular! certificates of service will he furnished to the | Commissioner of Pensions, hy the Third AtnliI tor, as is now the practice in regard to all claims I for pensions or bounty land.

TKf.kuitai'ine Verbosity,?We hear frequent complaints of the brief, incomplete and unsatisfactory accounts whicli the. telegraph furnishes of events and proceedings in different parts of the country. It is said to furnish just enough to spoil the details wnen they come to hand. Much of truth as there is in this charge, we imagine the telegraph or those more properly, who cater to its lightning usee, are equally open to an opposite complaint. Certainly,a great part of the matter published under the head of telegraphic despatches is the most useless and unimportant stuff imaginable which would not be noticed if received by due course of mail in the papers, but which as it is |uiid for at the rati- of a cent a word or so, editors think they must spread Out in their most prominent type.
