Our Rates of Advertising.
We annonnced some weeks since our intention to ttn.uee
the rate: of advertising in the Crescent to the cash standard,
on the first of October. We will civs to the public our re
duced rates to-morrow.
Tlii? Tariff of Charges has been arranged with great cor.side
ration, and upon a mathematical calculation of the value of
ever/inch of space in our columns. We wiih it distinctly
unrier*it»j«! ihn» wo du not make thin large redaction in our
rate of charges for the purpose of undercutting our neighbors
We sho-ild scorn to get patronage by any *nch means. Hut
we do ii on philosophical business principles. We are satis,
fied that it will open our columns to thousands who have
never heretofore thought themselves able to advertise, and
induce a general and almost universal system of advertising
in NewOrleans, such as prevails in many other large cities.
Heretofore the nominal rate of charges ha* been $ 1 for the
first, and 50 cents tor every subsequent insertion. Bnt it is a
notorious facr that an irregular system of discounts, on these
high ra'es, has grown up in this city, which opens the door
to the worst and most disreputable sys'em of underbidding
ever carried on in any business. The large and rapidly in
creasing circulation of our paper places It in a position, as
medium of communication with the public, to command it
full share of advertising patronage. It is no part of our pni
pose, therefore, to deprive our brethern and friends of tJi
NewOrleans press of any portion of their patronage, but it
to get many hundreds to advertise who have never dons s
heretofore. We adopt that principle, so fully proved by prat
tical experience, that the man who runt a line of Omnibuse»
through our Btreets makes more money by fixing the rat
fare at one dime than he would if he charged two dimes.
Tnis system has many advantages Miich we have not si
very low rates are offered as a premium to our advertising
patrons to pay cash in advance, by which we shall save,
nearly if not quite, the amount ot the reduction in expenses,
if they brought no increase of advertising. But that they
will quadruple the amount of profitable patronage hardly ad
mits of a moment*' doubt. No principle in business is better
established than that advertising in a paper of large circula
tion at fair and reasonable rates, pays a better profit than any
other equal amount invested in trade or business of any kind.
How can a person engaged in trade expect to get patronage
unless the public are made acquainted with his place of busi
ness and his ability to serve them ? We offer a tariff of chan
ges which appeals to the interest of every man and woman
engaged in business in this city, however small, to advertise
in the Crescent, and let every body know their locality anil
the inducements they have to offer to those who may call.
We place ourselves fearlessly and confidently on this demo
cratic republican platform. These rates are for the million.
They will be inviolably adhered to, and all onr patrons will
be placed on an equal footing. Our inside pages will be mado
highly valuable to advertisers, by the introduction of reading
matter calculated to a'tract attention to them ; and in conclu
sion we present our claims to the patronage of the public, on
terms of perfect reciprocity. Those who favor ns with adver
tisements will do themselves and us a service j»s nearly equal
ai it is possible t j imagine.

The New Cuban Movement. —The rumor of
new expedition against Cuba, (says the Baltimo
Sun of the 21st,) derives some additional for
from the fact thai the Washington Republic copies
an article from the Courrier des Etats Unis, of the
17th, which asserts that the reports of anew e*pe
dition against Cuba have assumed such a degree « f
consistency that, unfortunately, it in no longer pos
sible to regard them as a mere fanciful rumor
The Courrier says that preparations are going o:>
secretly, with the greatest activity, since it is de.
sired to act at once before the reinforcements ex
pected from Europe shall have placed the island in
a too formidable slate of defence, and more esjv
cially before the organization of a line of steamers
between Cadiz and Havana shall have put Spain
within a few days' reach of her colony. What iB
the most lingular part of the story is, that this lib
erating plot is being prepared under the auspices
of Gen Lopez, a man who already stands indict-d
for violation of the laws of this country, in fitting
out the former exped it ion.
In this State the following new post-office» have
been established—St. Cloud, East Feliciana, J. S
Peacoclte, postmaster ; Isle Breville, Natchitoches

the election for delegates to take place on the 23d
day of November next, and the Covention to meet
at Milledgeville on the lüih of December.
Métairie Track. —Do not forget the pacing race
to-day ; it is mile heats, best three in live, under
the saddle, between St. Charles and Silver Heels,
to come off precisely at 4 o'clock. Those who
wish to see the first head had better be there at that
time.
The Steamer Montgomery. —The Montgomery
makes her appearance in this port, prepared to take
her place immediately in the Princeton and Vicks
burg trade. She is a splendid boat—one of the
largest, fastest, safest, best finished and furnished
in the Southern trade, or on the Western waters.
U nder the command of the courteous and accom
plished Capt. J. II. Estes, and with so competent
an officer un Mr. Joseph Case in the clerk's depart
ment, she cannot be otherwise than a favorite with
shippers and the traveling public. The Mont

five o'clock ; and will, during the whole season, be
a regular Monday evening packet.

Rejection or S. J. Peter« by the
We learn from a telegraphic dispatch, which will (
be found in another column, that our feMöw-citi
zen, Samuel J. Peters, E«q , who was nominated
by President Taylor to the office of Collector of this
Port, has been rejected by the U. S. Senate. We
are also informed by a private dispatch from a re
liable source, that it was carried by a strict party
vote. One of the senators from this State, we un
derstand, after causing the report on the nomination
to be postponed by the Committee on Commerce
till a late period of the session, without assigning
any reason whatever, made the charge against Mr.
Peters that he was an importer of foreign merchan
dise, and pledged his word as a senator that he
knew the charge to be true This charge was no
sooner made known to Mr. Peters than it was
proved to be false and without the shadow of
foundation, by the oaths of gentlemen of unim
peachable character, who have been in a position
to know positively for years past. No other charge
objection was urged, so far as we know and be
lieve. It is therefore evident that he haa been re
jected on purely party grounds.
Regarding it in this light, it may be fairly and
properly considered by the parly lo which he be
longs, rather as a mark of honorable, and enviable
distinction, than a9 reflecting upon him the slight
est discredit or disparagement. He alone, among
all the men nominated by the lamented Taylor to
important offices of trust in our country, has been
thought worthy to be immolated on the altar of
party malignity in the Senate of this great nation.
as we remember, the case is without pre
cedent, and certainly it is without excuse. It may be
erted, without the fear of contradiction, that nc
Collector in the Union has given greater satisfac
I on. Transcendent abilities, unswerving integri
ty, and the highest excellence of moral charaner,
• re conceded to him by his most bitter enemies ;
md no man will be bold enough to deny the fart
that he has devoted himself indtfatigably and un
ceasingly to the performance of his official duties.
We venture also to assert that he has removed a
mailer number of democrats from office, in pro
lortion to the number he lound in the Customhouse,
han any Collector in the United States has done,
inder any administration, in the last twenty years,
In this, however, we have understood he has dis
pleased the democratic party very much, and
have' very little doubt if he had made a clean
sweep of every democrat in office, he would have
>een confirmed.

This announcement, as may well be imagined
by our friends at a distance, has produced a deep
sensation throughout the city. It has been received
by our whole community of all parties, with the
reption of a few Ishmaelites, whose " hands
against any man," such as are to be found every
where, with the deepest displeasure and disgust
It is generally regarded, so far as we have heard
ein expression, as an instance of the most acrimo
nious and unrelenting persecution for party revenge
to be found in the annals of political warfare.
Many very sagacious men have predicted
presence, that it would be the means of elevating
Mr. Peters to a position worthy of his high charac
'.er and great abilities. We repeat that no public
officer has given greater satisfaction than has M
Peters, and that it must be apparent to all that by
means of falsehood and detraction or
certain Honorable Senators (?) who ai
enemies, he has been made the victi
and assassin-like revenge. But he
vote of eve*y Senator of his own party, and that
fact will go far to reconcile him with the result;
painful as it must be to the feelings of an honorable
lid high minded man to be rejected by the
American Senate, under any circumstances.
It is well known here, that the appointment
tendered to Mr. Peters by General Taylor, with
• >ut solicitation on his part, either directly
:ectly, and that he accepted it "much more
enoe to the wishes and urgent solicitatior
friends, than from his own inclination.
We have had, all our life, greater respect for the
American Senate, than for any body of men on the
ace of the earth ; but it must be frankly confesssed
hat such an act as the one uuder consideratio >, is
alculated to bring it into disgrace and contempt in
the eyes of all good men.
How we are amazed to behold such men as Cass,
Dickinson, Douglass, Houston, Foote and Downs,
•oming down from their transcendently exalted
positions, and lending themselves to dirty dema
gogues and party scavengers, to do an act that
would disgrace a pettifogger! But still perhaps
such an occurrence affords us a useful lesson. It
^ives u n u juHt conception of human frailty and the
depravity of our nature. We aie reminded that the
greatest ot our race are but men, and are thu
guarded against a very common species of idolatry

lower our ideas of human greatness, and check oi

iiighest summit of man's ambition, and commanding
the admiration, applause and gratitude of a whole
nation, for their patriotic course in saving their
country from disunion and civil war, and the next day
degrading themselves to a level with the meanest
demagogues and party hacks, and voting to reject
one of- the best men, and one of the most capable
and faithful officers in the Government, merely to
gratify the cowardly revenge of these political vam

The Congressional CanvnsR,
The Congressional CanvnsR,
Judge Hullard has returned from his visit to
Lafourche country. He addressed tho people at
rinbodaux in English and French. Should i
uecessary, his acquaintance with the modern lan
guages enables him to converse with his constitu
«nts in Itulian, Spanish, and German. The
Lafayette Statesman is so polite as to say that
Judge Bullard is a parlor gentleman, capable of
writing tolerable album verses and delivering
eloquent eulogies, but he is not fit to enter into the
stormy debates of the House. The twenty-cne
volumes ot Louisiana Reports fortunately remain
■is monuments of his late juridical labors. While
we cheerfully concede to the editor of the States
man, the most exquisite taste in matters of Belief
Lettres, wc must prefer the opinion of Senator
Downs on a question of a legal nature.
Downs, in the Senate, at the last session, clumsy
rhetorician as he is, pronounced the high*
eulogium on the judicial character of the Judge,
between whom and himself, though political oppo
nents, the highest mutual respect is entertained.
It was on a subject deeply involving the pros
perity of Lafayette, the intrusion into our simple
rules of practice of the cumbersome, antiquated,
tedious and interminable pleadings of the Chancery
Courts. The Supreme Court of the United State:
several years ago decided that the Federal Courti
must adopt the prolixity, tediousness and expen
siveness of a patched up system, itself engrafted
secretly on the barbarian code by the intelligent
Priesthood of the dark ages. It was forcing on
the litigant* a miserable copy, made by stealth, in
place of one fitted for our people by its brevity,
simplicity, economy and rapidity. At once a num
ber of Chancery lawyers moved to NewOrleans,
to accumulate fortunes by their superior knowledgt
ill the mechanical department of Chancery Plead
ing. But they found our lawyers were m
smatterers in the principles of the civil law. It was
under this system they have been educated, and
the mere quibbles to surprise the unwary lawy
out ot a just cause, were soon mastered. Several
Chancery suits, involving large amounts, and hang
ing like an incubus on Lafaye.te and other parts
of the State, have been for years in the Courts.
Most of the lawyers originally employed, are dead,
and the suits hang like ftiueral palls over their
memories. The last argument of the imaginative,
eloquent, logical Prentiss, occupied hours, in
the discussion of a single technical point, in nc
manner atfecting the merits of the Poultney claim
At a meeting of the bar held in this city, in Nov
1847, a committee was appointed to memoralize
Congress on the grievance which bore so heavily
°n the country. The paper, prepared by Judge
Bollard, was adopted by Mr. Downs, as presenting
in the clearest terms the merits of the controversy.
I hat measure has not yet been acted on by
Congress. It is one of vital importance to <
citizens ; and in the hands of Judge Bullard,
perfectly master of the subject, we may reasonably
expect prompt and favorable action. Those who
live within the valley of the shadow of death, the
Poultney limits, may weil afford, in a contest
between two whig«, to vote for the man who under
stands their interests, lie gave the decision of
the Supreme Court against the Poultney claim.
The last opinion rendered by the old Court,
whom it is now so much the fashion to deride, was
rendered by Judge Bullard : it was an opinion in
which he dissented from the iniyority of the Court,
in support of the inviolability of the verdict of a
jury on an action for damages. His closing para
graph is better fitted for the arena of a popular
mbly, than the elegant insipidity of a lady's

An Unfounded C lia rye Refuted
We do not conceive that it is any departure from
ir independent position to defend a personal friend
when unjustly charged, and to urge his claims to
the support of the people, when there is no candi
date of the opposite party in the field.
The opponents of Judge Bullard have urged
against him the objection that he is not sufficiently
progressive in his political creed, and in proof of
the charge, have asserted that he was opposed
new Constitution of this State. This is a great
take, and those who make it ought to have
known better. We cannot say whether they
wilfully ignorant or not, but one thing we can state
positively, and that is, that we have known in the
»Urse of our life many men who would make any
•rt of statements at random, for political effect,
ithout knowing or caring whether they were true
false, so they answered their purpose. They
im their pay and live on it, and are satisfied.
Judge Bullard may not be sufficiently progres
ve in his political views to suit some persons in
the District, and of course, if such can suit them
selves better, it is their right to do so ; but the
assertion that he was opposed to the new Consti
tution, is entirely without foundation. He was not
ly in favor of it, but gave it the whole might of
s influence, and wrote a series of able papers,
urging its adoption by the people, over the signa
ture of " Hampden," which were published in 1
Bulletin. We refer those who wish to know t
truth in regard to Judge Bullard's views of the n
Constitution to the files of that paper.
Governor Johnson has been put on the field
the competitor of Judge Bullard, without his ci
sent, and we verily believe he will not serve, under
the circumstances, if elected. We can only i
this movement, got up by men who have
war upon him through life, until it suits th
make an instrument of him to deride and weaken
that political party which has stood by him foi
thirty-five years, as a most gross and unwaranta
ble attack on his reputation. That he will sc
regard it himself we have not the shadow of a doubt.
But it is urged that Governor Johi
acceptable to the democratic party than Judge Bul
laid, because he voted for the annexrtion of Texas.
We deny that the annexation of Texas was a party
question. The whigs were as much in favor of it
as the democrats. We remember distinctly that
the whigs urged the election of Clay over Polk, on
the ground that he would secure Texas by peacea
ble measures, while Polk, if elected, would secure
it at the expense of a war with Mexico.
But if the same test be applied to Governor
Johnson that is applied to Judge Bullard, it will be
proved that he is not sufficiently progressive. He
was, in fact, opposed to the whole movement in
reference to the new Constitution. He was opposed
to the call of a Convention, and strongly opposed to
the new Constitution after it was formed. We do not
make this statement by way of finding fault with
>r Johnson. We entertain the highest res
pect and warmest friendship for him. But we
rely do so to show what inconsistencies men
1 sometimes run themselves into. He was a
mber of the Convention of 1S12, and had a large
share in the formation of the old Constitution, ft
modeled on that of the State of Kentucky,
from which he came, and it was quite natural that
he should have been warmly attached to the instru
ment which he had so materially aided in framing.
He perhaps thought it might be amended in some
respects, but, upon the whole, that there would be
as much danger of making it worse, as there would
be hope of improving it ; and, therefore, that it was
better to let it be. But still, if it be a political sin to
have opposed the new Constitution, it is very clear
that it does not lie at the door of Judge Bullard.

The Cane Crop. —The result of our inquiries
specling the cane, crop of this parish,
isfartory as we would wish. Plantei
ent sections entertain opposite opini
differ
to the
„ doubt,
however, that the location materially affects the
cane hero. Those who have plantations contigu
ous to the sen-shore sfieak very favorably of their
prospects, whilst those more distant have less con
fidence in the result. Many of the former expect
to turn out nearly, if not quite, as much sugar as
last year ; but tho latter ray their crops will be
fully one-third short of last year's produce. One
thing, however, is very certain—that iu the aggre
gate it must fall short, for the cane in some sections
sj -aks for itself—it has not the quantity of juice it
should have. Although some planters have been
more fortunate than others, yet none of them pre
tend to a greater yield than that of last year, and
all agree as to a late season. In the parish of St.
Marlin, by all we can learn, there in not that great
inequality which prevails hern, and in many places
the cane looks quite promising. Daily showers
would be of great service just now, and would con
siderably brighten the prot-p'cts of some, who at
present scarcely expect to pay expense*.— Planter8*

(steamboat Explosion ! -- Fourteen Per
sons Killed and Scalded!
The St. Louis Republican, of the 22d inst., fur
shes us with the following particulars of the ex
plosion of the steamer Kate Kearney—attended, as
usual, with fatal consequences :
We have no later information respecting the
accident on this boat, than that received on Friday
evening by telegraph. The steamer Monongahela
arrived yesterday morning. Her officers confirm
the report of the explosion, and when they passed
she was lying to shore, a short distance below
Canton, where the accident took place. The Mon
ongahela rounded to, ran alongside, and Captain
Ball proffered any assistance in his power, but the
dead and wounded had been taken from the boat,
and her officers had concluded to remain where
they were until the steamer Die Vernon could take
them in tow to this city.
The particulars of the accident as stated to the
officers and passengers of the Monongahela, are as
follows : Tlie Monongahela passed Canton on her
upward trip between ten and eleven o'clock on
Thursday morning, and in less than an hour after
ward the Kate Kearney came up, and landed just
long enough to put a passenger or a few packages
of freight ashore. Alter a few minutes' detention,
not to exceed five, she backed out from the landing,
and at the second or third revolution the starboard
flue of her larboard boiler collapsed, and blowing
forward killed and scalded fourteen or fifteen
ot the crew assembled on the bow of the boat.
Five are known to have been killed almost in
stantly—four white men and one negro—and nine
others were more or less injured, one or two dan
gerously. The exact number had not been ascer
tained when the Monongahela left, and the proba
bi ity is thaL is never will be. The injured, as
well as the dying and the dead, had been removed
to the town, and up to the hour of leaving, but
eighteen out of a crew of thirty-two could be
bled ; the remainder were eitheV killed, mis
scalded.
Ay reported by telegraph, the accident happïned
jti .1 a-- tlie boat was ba< king out from the landing.
Had the explosion happened while lying at the
wharf, tiie loss of life would have been very great,
■ s the shore was lined wi it persons to see her t
Several were drenched with mud and steam,
>»ne or two knocked down, but no one on sbon
riously hurt. A pile of lumber on the wharf,
immediately in range with the collapsed boiler, is
sa:d to have preserved the lives of many, as i:
deadened the force of the shock, and acted as t
shield to a croud of persons immediately beyond.
The starboard flue of the larbi ard boiler alone
?ave way, and ull the steam and scalding water
iilew out forward. Many of the injured, and nuni
'itrs who were unhurt, instantly jumped overboard,
ii d at one lima there were more than thirty p
Jons in the wafer, some of whom swam to i
d ore, but tie.- larger portion were picked up by
.vain of skitR The shock subsided, and even be
fo.e the steam cleared away, boat< wore procured
and manned by the citizens of Cantuu ; in less
than twenty minutes every person visible had been
Raken from the water. The scalded were taken
directly into ihe town, where every attention was
bestowed, aid every tint, g done to relieve their suf
ferings. l our unfortunate beings were already be
y< nd the reach of human aid, and one poor fellow
wis found in the scuttle with one leg mashed lo
atoms ; his sufTjiings, it wa* thought, could not
Ir d long. Five, as we have before stated, are cer
i: inly dead, and nine others more or less hurt ; but
of this number we have as yet been unable to as
c< riain a solitary name. The loss and injury is
confined entirely to the crew, and, as on similar
oi casions, these poor follows have no names. The
b >at has not sustained material injury.
The New Era, of the evening of the 21st, gives
the following additional particulars: The exact
number killed, blown overboard, and lost by
the explosion, is not, and.'probably never will be
known. Capt Morrison, of the Kat.^,sets down
tl e number of killed at four or five and the wounded
a nine, three or four of whom canno*. survive their
injuries. Six of the boat's crew, however, at
I Nsing, which raises the presumption that the lo:
oi life is underrated. All of the killed and injured
v. ;re deck hands and firemen, who were standing
ou the forecastle.

?ar it has not been properly appreciated. Notwithstandir r,
ire doubt his plan of ditches at every 400 yards being suited
a the present condition of the depressed surface of the oulti
ated lands on the Coast ; yet we feel a stronger doub t
whether it is not the very plan that should have been adopted,
say some fitly or more years ago, when the Levees were first
built on those lands. We view McLionogh as one of the
links by which we yet communicate with the past.
We wish every man would read and re-read his paper
There is to us a mournful pleasure in reviewing the sentit
ments, and of understanding the feelings of an intelligent and
good old man ; especially, of those whom we have known in
their most buoyant days of manhood. We love to contem
plate the character of a good old man, who passing dowu ths
broad River of life, overflows its banks, with his intellectua
stores, and leavesthtm a deposit there for the benefit of those
who remain on shore. How different from him who encloses
his way by Levees, and artificial embankments, and carrie a
all his wealth out to the bottom of that Sea whence no
voyager has ever returned.
In the able communication of the venei.tble Dr. Brashear,

The reverse is the fact. Proof: Take any quantity of the
water holding the sediment in suspension, in any shaped ves
sel ; a few day's rest will precipitate it all to the bottom,
leaving the water transparent. Agitation alone keeps it in
suspension—not the pressure of the weight of water. Many
other eiperiments perhaps more decidedly will prove the same

We have seen Boulders of live hundred tons twenty miles

a new theory to say that such boulders ate swimming about
in the dc >p sea, becausa the pre sure of water has overcome
dieir gravitation. The law pertitent to the case >s *' every
particle ot'a fluid in equilibria, is pressed equally in every
direction." This law was dbcoverrd by Arch nnedci. The
doctrine is fully elucidated in his book entitled " Periakon
inenon, de insidentibus m fluido." We hope we have made
oun 'Iv^' intelligible to the Doctor.
We nest propose to look into the communication of our
friend Professor Forshey. ft is a rich trat to follow in the
path of a mind highly cultivated, we might say adorned,
by the all the floweu of literature, and strengthened by
standing on the solid masonry of philo jphic ir earch. But
we hasten to question the accuracy of his conclusions rs ex
prt seil on the 28th page of the Report :

These conclusions clearly evolve the proposition that tin
bed of the River does not e'evate ; but he appeals to no hydro
dynamic law commanding sucli a result. The doctrine
catcd and the law» reaching tho ca?? are the same with those
of Doctor Brashear, and the same arguments aupei'incnt
either for or against.
Bnt we stop to admire how a mind which has demonstrated
its ability to successfully comprehend all things either in
Morals, Physics or Philosophy, from the scar'? perceptible
nebula of the moit distant space, down tu the Cotton Worm
auil Coco, could have ever thus stopped in a crevasse. But

But his doctrine btill remained unexplained by its dark rolling

The conclusion was that the unknown causes of action were
