ICThe Office of the Indiana State Sentinel is remored to the Three Story Building, in the centre of the city, opposite the Telegraph Office and Odd Fellows' IlalU Agents.- The following persons arc authorized to receive Sub scriptions for the " Sentinel:" Johxsov Cocstt Dr. J. F. Pxggs, Franklin.. Tin-ox Cou.vtt W. F. Brady, Tipton. All Postmasters, so disposed, will please act as our Agents. ' Indiana State Sentinel". We have been seTcral times tempted to give ex tracts from Indiana papers and others, noticing the State Sentinel under its present editor. But we de termined at the outset, not to use any of the usual means of obtaining notoriety, although, under present circumstances, it would be perfectly justifiable, if not absolute! necessary, as a self-vindication. Cer tain whig- prints have been constant in their abuse and misrepresentation for several weeks; but they have now ceased their work their cannons are spiked. Both whig and democratic papers, throughout the State, are pleased with the appearance of the Senti nel in its new dress, and the New Albany Ledger justly says "The mechanical department of the Sentinel is under the direction of Mr. Bosworth, late of this city, than whom there is no better printer in the State or out of if."" The editor and assistant editor are too old to be spoiled by compliments, but we must confess, that some things have been said of us that are rather grateful" to our feelings. As wc are now printing a paper that neither whigs nor democrats are ashamed of, we hope that uur friends will seize upon the present propitious moment to procure subscribers There is no farmer but can spare enough from his present wheat crop to procure a Sentinel for at least one year. We have endeavored to accommodate the public, by placing the Sentinel at the lowest possible rates that we can live by and- print a good paper. Three copies, it will be seen by our terms, can- be prscured for five dollars five copies for eight dollars; and ten copies for fifteen dollars, and an extra copy thrown in for procuring the ten subscribers. This will make our paper come about as low as the dollar papers of the East counting the difference v post age whose news, in these days of telegraphs, will be a week or ten days behind us, and give nothing of the local transactions of the State in which all are so much interested. We intend to make an effort to print a paper that will drive the circulation of thou sands of eastern papers, having no common sympa thy with the people of Indiana, from amongst us. AN e know we can do it in lime. It will only be rü j?:..arv for the editor of this naner to make a few stump speeches on the subject, in each county, to accomplish the work, if we do not do it before he leaves Congress. Recollect the next year or six months will cover the Convention and the Lrgislature. Clubs of three, five and ten are pouring in daily, and we want all to have the benefit of our paper. Busi ness men begin to see that it is their interest to ad vertise in the Sentinel, and with our small type wc can crowd 'a great many advertisements into our columns, without drawing much on the room neces sary for other matter. So come on. Ceremonies iü honor of General Taylor at In- Great Eastern and Southern Railroad passing dianapolis. , through Indianapolis.

We Lave received the Oregon spectator of the 16th of May, containing proceedings of tho legis lature then in session; also the Message of Governor Lane to the Legislative Assembly, delivered on the 7th of thc same month. It is a plain, business docu mentjust such a message as might be expected from the old General, brief and satisfactory on every point lt will be recollected by the readers ol the renu- nel, that several slanderous letters were published last winter in the New York Tribune, signed " Lans- dalc,,, and noticed as calumnies in the Sentinel. One of these letters purporting to be from a professed democrat in Oregon, in which, speaking of Governor Lane he said : "The associates of his Excellency appeared to be selected not from the excellent of the earth, but from tboi-e who drank very much whiskey that was not ex cellent, and who had not left the most excellent reputa tion in the States. I do not wish it to be mlerred lrom these remarks that I have ever seen our Governor drunk, nor that I find fault with him for selecting his own asso ciates. I think he had a perfect right to do it. All I mean to affirm is, that a very larre majority of our citi zens do not approve of the taste evinced by him in select ing his associates. This much I will say, however, that although I am a Locofoco, as you know, yet I would be happy to learn that be had been removed"." , This "Lansdale'i now appears without a local habitation, or a name in Oregon. At an election for member of the council to fill a vacancy for the coun ty of Yam Hill, 0. T., in the town of Lafayette, on the 4th of May, 1850, the following preamble and resolutions were unanimously adopted : Whereas. A certafn letter has this dav been rend tn thia meeting from tho " New York Weekly Tribune," oi January mt, ISoO, dated Sent, 8th, 14J. over the fictitious signature of " Lansdale," grossly abusing our esteemed citizen and chief executive officer, Gov.

On motion, a copy of these proceedings and a list of the names is directed to be sent to theT Oregon Spec tator, New York Weekly Tribune, and Washington Union, for publication. These resolutions were signed by over one hun dred persons, who participated in the meeting, which are omitted a3 unnecessary.

We are pleased to learn, that the democratic can didates for Representatives in this county have made a good impression, wherever they have gone and made speeches, and they have canvassed thc county very generally. They are all farmers, and identified with thc prosperity of the county in every particular. The whigs, in town, have abandoned the idea of electing any other of their ticket for the Lcgülature than young Coburn, and therefore, some of his friends are ready to trade off any part of the ticket to secure voles for him. We trust the voting democrats of Indianapolis, to whom this appeal has been made, will stand true to their political integrity. Wc would be glad to advance the interests of our young friend in any other way than by political promotion. He first came before the people of Marion county in rather a questionable shape for either whigs or demo crats to support him. It will be recollected that the first announcement of Ids name, in the Indiana Jour nal, was as the candidate of the Liberty party. This was cither a ruse to get abolition votei, or a reality tliat we think will not be very palatable in certain quarters. We understand that, in one of las speech es, he squinted very strongly in favor of the election of an abolition United States' Senator. He is entirely too young a man to commence ih political career Iy deception, and for Ids own good we hope he will be defeated. It will be a lesson for him to commence right in politics. Honesty is the best policy in poli tics as well as in every thing else. We hope our democratic friends will be a unit in the Representa tative ticket.

He threatens thc President distinctly, with this defection, unless he will come to hi. prescribed terms; he informs him explicitly, that himself and his tail, whom he mod estly denominates 'the rank and file of the Whig party the. men tcho make Presidents and require manifestations of sympathy in return, may be driven to Siek wore congenial associations!1 " Thus, we see, the Devil having been raised among the Democrats of New York, he is determined not to be laid until he gives the Whig party, also, a taste of 1Ü3 peculiar quality fender of their doctrines. Mr. Dunham, of Indiana. We arc gratified to notice that extracts have been taken from this gentleman's California speech and published in the eastern papers, not only on accouut of the principles he advocates, but as specimens of eloquence. The first half of Mr. Dunham's speech, in com mittee of lhe uhole, on the President's Message transmitting the Constitution of California, was pub lished in our last semi-weekly, ami will be found on the outside of this day's weekly. We had intended to complete the publication qf the speech in this number; but are compelled to postpone it until our next. We trust our readers will preserve both num bers of the paper, and give the whole speech an at tentive perusal. Mr. Dunham is an industrious and is destined to be a useful member in Congress.

" The editor of the Albany State Register, com menting on this paragraph, and the article from which CCSThe editor of the Indiana Journal is quite in dignant at thc remark of the Sentinel, in relation to the anii-American sentiments of Thomas Corwin in the Senate" of the United States, on the Mexican war; and he would gel off on a quibble, as many have attempted to do before him, that the precise language of Mr. Corwin has not always been quoted, We know, from the testimony of hundreds of brave volunteers, then in Mexico, that when this infamous speech was received, translated and published in Spanish in the Mexican papers, that it produced a spontaneous gush of indignation against its author, and he was burned in effigy, as, perhaps, might have been lhe case with the author, had he been pre sent. It is easy to pronounce tlie words "infamous falsehood," but we presume it will be hard for the Indiana Journal to prove to the people of Indiana that Thomas Corwin is a patriot. He may say, that Thomas Corwin, in a revised publication of his rV--h, modified his language; but we dare the edi tor to publish the passage from tliis Mexican speech above alluded to. . There is no wonder the editor of thc Journal feels sensitive on this subject. When Com in 's speech made its appearance, it was at a dark period in the Mexican war. Thc opposition to President Polk had been wrought up to the most hellish fury, and such was the Journal's confidence that all was lost in Mexico, that on publishing Corwin's speech the editor, as is most usually the case with lum, went off half cocked, and declared in flaming characters, "It is a fixed fact that Thomas Corwin will be the next President." "A regard for Whig principles forbids the nomination of General Taylor!" " Extract from Corwin's Mexican Speech. "The Senator from Michigan savs, we will be two hundred millions in a few vears, and we want room. If I were a Mexican I would tell yoo, "Hare imu not room in your own country to bury ijour drad tuen? If ytu come into mine ire irill greet you triA bloody hands, un l welcome you to hoxpitanle graves:' 1 nomas Corwin's speech ; de livered in the U. S. Senate Feb. 11, 1847 copied from ureelv s Wins Almanac ol 145. Tliis is from thc revbed edition of Mr. Corwin's speech, and precisely the same from which it was translated into Spanish and published in the Mexican papers, copies of which were found with our effptur- cd enemies; and this is lhe language that the cdi tor of the Journal believed would make Tom Cor win President of the United States. Who has told the "infamous falsehood," the editor of the Journal or the editor of the Sentinel? Which paper should acknowledge itself an infamous libeller?" The Epectiojt. Here it is. onlv a littl more than a week until the election, and the " local " of the ' Sen tinel," alter pulling and blowing, and begging and scrib bling, for four weeks, has lccn unable to raise any excite ment about it. People tcUl vote just as they please, and that he don't like. Pity that every body did not look through his spectacles. " They would do exactly right, then, certain: Indiana Journal. If wc had the courtciy and politeness of thc editor of the Journal, or of his fat assistant, we woulJ pro nounce the above a " contemptible falsehood." As it is, it i3 only necessary to publish the above lo show that these gentlemen have been dreaming. They, or at least one of them, attended a whig cau cus last winter and thought their triggers were all so well set that the Democrats would be caught nap ping, and that they would be sure of carrying the Legislature, if not the Convention. The Journal editor would have the people believe that he is no partisan that he would as soon vole for a Democrat as a Whig. We hate a hypocrite above all tilings, and knowing that the editor would do anything to gain a whig vote, we have only been- free to express our opinions. The very thing we want is for the people to vote as they please not that they should be either wheedled or threatened out of their votes. Democracy has nothing to fear when the people vote their true sentiments, and such we think will be the case in the coming e:ections in Indiana. ' MrAxxiiss. The editor of thc Journal, with his cliaractcristic regard for trutli, says, that the expenses of General Taylor's funeral is published in the Sen tinel to make political capital! We published an article from tl.c New York Tribune censuring the expenditure, and. wc think Greely will be sustained bv a v 11 as dejuot it.!'. Southern Press and the Compromise. From the lone of the Washington Southern Press, there is little prospect of the ultra men of the South yielding their support to any compromise that can be adopted. From thc following article, published on the morning of the 20th inst., we may gather the views of southern politicians in a condensed form on several subjects. They are altogether too unyield ing, we believe, for their own good. Thc Southern Press says: We announced several weeks ago tho probable failure of thc Compromise plan of tho Committee ot thirteen Another paper in tins city has wasted many columns ol predictions that it would succeed, and of arguments in its favor. But now thc impending failure ol tho bill is admitted. . 1 Those who have hitherto supported it will now choose between a division of tho acquired territory, between the orth and bouth, or a total denial in word, as wel as in deed, of all Southern right whatever to that terri tory. The alternatives are very plain they are diamet rically opposed and their consequences respectively are very obvions. liy one tue Union can be preserved by the other it cannot. - By the attempt to exclude the South from all share in the territory acquired, the country has already been brought into a revolutionary condition. The functions of Congress have been paralized for seven months. J he Lxecutive has been brought to tho verge of conflict with a soveieign State. A vast extent of territory has been left without government. And an inflammatory sectional contest has been excited. Wo are now to see how much real love of Union remains. We shall now ascertain how much of the professed love of it is a mere lust of the power and spoils to be won by an abuse of its authority. ' (7It is reported, that the Senators of Uie Western States have held a caucus, in Convention w ith the friends of the Compromise, and it was agreed to re fer the question of the boundary of Texas to Com missioners for settlement. If this be true, it is re garded as securing the passage of a Compromise P.Ul. - ' ; They Jump Jim Crow! The Springfield Illino'u Register of thc 2olh in it. contains the following paragraph, which shows that the whig prints of that Stale, as well as of Indiana, are pursuing the true instincts of their nature, wliich is to follow the dispensers of patronage. It appears that there is a Springfield Journal, as well as, an In diana Journal, and that they are of the same kidney. The Register says: The Journal of yesterday is out in a Fignificant para graph in favor of tho compromise a measure which' the Journal opposed up to the day of the death of thc Prcsi dt?at. This is as we predicted on the happening of that event. We believe that at that time not a whig paper except the Alton Telegraph was in favor of the compro mise bill. On the contrary, they were violently opposed to it. Nov we find them all rallying for it. Such is the flexibility of whig principles. A Hit at the Times. The New York Day Book is the author of the fol lowing: - ' " SVDVZS ANP U-VACCOCNTABLE DtSSAPrEARAXCE OF more than oxE THOUSAND Citizens. Between the hours of ten o'clock on Tuesday night and sunrise Wed nesday morning, there suddenly disappeared from our midst one thousand able bodied citizens, heretofore. known as the peculiar friends of Wra. H. Seward, and their places were irstnntancouMy tilled with the warm est and -most devoted friends of a gentleman by tho name of Millard Fillmore, formerly a resident of Buff 1I0 in this State, but more recently Vice-President of the United States, Most of those who disappeared so mys teriously, hold situations in the Custom House: and strange to say, those who appeared the next morning as friends of Mr. Fillmore went directly to tho desks of the absentees-without as mueli as saying bv your leave." We are not informed whether the Collector's chair was filled by one of them or not, hut ve presume from the nature ol things that it was. Washington Correspondence. Washixctos City, July 22, 1850. The members of the new Cabinet have been ap pointed and confirmed by the Senate. They are as follows : " - - Daniel Webster, of Massachusetts, Secretary of State. Thomas Corwin, of Ohio, Secretary of thc Trea sury. ' . James A. Pearcc, of Maryland, Secretary of the Interior. Edward Rales, of Missouri, Secretary of War. William A. Graham, of North Carolina, Secretary of the Naw. Nathan K. Hall, of New York, Post Master Gen eral. N ' John J. Crittenden, of Kentucky, Attorney Gen eral. As I predicted in my last, tliis is an old-fashioned Whig Cabinet. Daniel Webster is well known to Uie country. He entered Congress in 1813 as a Representative from the Portsmouth District, New Hampshire. He was a federalist, and a violent opponent of the war. . From that day to this he has been an open and fearless ad vocate of his principles. First a Federalist, then a National Republican, now a Whig; and although party names have changed, his principles have al ways been the same. His appointment was most strenuously opposed by the New England Free Soil Whigs, on account of his desertion of the Wilmot proviso and his advocacy of the Compromi?e. It is said that no whig north of Pennsylvania favored his appointment, and his final success proves the firm ness of President Fillmore and his opposition to the " Wilmot." He is a gentleman of great experience and undoubted talents. Thomas Corwin, of Ohio, the man of bloody hand and hospitable graves memory, is the Secretary of the Treasury. Corwin is an orator, a gentleman of some talents, but I predict his administration of the Treasury will be a signal failure. He is not a man of industrious habits unaccustomed to the severe details of a strictly administrative office. Nineteen democrats voted against his confirmation. It was, however, urged by Mr. Clay, on the ground that al though Corwin was nominally for the Proviso, bis heart was for the Compromise, and he had had the discretion and good sense to say nothing on this or any other subject during this talking session. Be this as it may, Thomas Corwin Was the sugar plum thrown to the abolitionists to soothe their angry feel ings, occasioned by the appointment of Webster. James A. Pearce is a gentleman and a scholar, a whig, a partizan, and an antiquarian. But I have just learned that he declines the honor intended thinking that five years in the Senate is better than two years in the Cabinet. Sensible. m . - n. w Ldward Bates is a lawyer ot bt. lxtuis. lie was a federal member of Congress from Missouri during the administration of Mr. Adams. He has a high reputation as a lawyer, but ha3 never distinguished himself as a politician or a statesman. His last con troversv was with Col. Benton, and was of a most bitter and personal character. He has had no expe rience of an administrative character. William A. Graham was once a member of the United States Senate, and afterwards Governor of North Carolina. He is an amiable gentleman, of respectable talents, conservative in his views, and, with the southern whigs, is a popular appointment. Nathan K. Hall is emphatically a New York poli tician, but unknown to fame. He was formerly the law partner of Mr. Fillmore, was a member of the 30th Corfgress from the City of Buffalo, but was de feated in the nomination for the 31 st Congress by the influence of the Sewardites. He then desired the appointment of Governor of MInesota; but Seward again defeated him; his enemies were appointed to the most important offices at Buffalo. N. K. Hall's recommendation was death to a New York ofiice- secker. j What a change! The rejected stone Is now a con-! spicuous one in the Whig arch. He will be the " con fidence man" of President Fillmore. His manage ment secured his nomination at Philadelphia. He has much political sagacity, and will not only sweep the country clean of Democratic Postmasters, but will cleanse the Augean stable of Sewardism and abolitionism, and every other ism, but true and una dulterated whlggery. He is a gentleman of popular manners, and will make a good Post Master General, except in the business of appointments. " John J. Crittenden, the Attorney General, is too well known to your readers to need any remaks from me. It is not certain that he will accept. He has some pretensions to the Presidency, and a position in the Cabinet of a Whig President is generally a bourne from whence no traveler returns. The late Galphin Cabinet stands out as a warning beacon, and, in my opinion, such places will now only be taken as the shroud of a departed whig politician. The Cabinet is Clay all over. The old fellow walks with the elasticity of a boy. A smile plays upon his face. If he can pass the Compromise bill he will have conquered Ids last earthly enemy, and will be ready to say " let thy servant depart in peace." Webster, Pearce, Bates, Graham, Hall, and Critten den are for lhe Compromise. As Pearce has de clined, another gentleman of the same stamp from the South will be selected. . XAVIER.

But blighted all! delusive spell and flowers, Back to yonr prison in my joyless heart! There to remain, 'till fond, recalling powers, Shall bid thee forth to life and beauty start.

Washington Citt, July 1, 1350. V. R. F. A letter from an Aunt in Ireland to her Nephew The following letter mu.t have been written by the Great Grand Mother of Mrs. Partington : Jixe2J, 1799. Dear Nephew: I have not written to you since my last before now, lieeausc as we had moved from our former place of living, I did not know where a letter would find you; but I now, with pleasure, take; my pen to in form you of the melancholy news of the death of your own living ancle Kilpatriek, who died very suddenly last week after a lingering illness of five months. The poor man was in violent convulsions the whole time of bis sickness, laying perfectly quiet and speechless, all the while talking incoherent, and calling for water. I had no opportunity of informing you of his death sooner, ex cept I wrote vou by last post, which went off two day before be diet!, and then you would have had postage to pay. I am at a loss to tell what bis death was occasion ed bv, but I fear it was brought on by Lis last sickness, for he never was well ten days top-ether darin? the whole of bis confinement, and I believe bis sickness was occasioned by Lis eating too much of rabbits stuffed with peas and pravy. or peas and graw stuffed with rabbits, I can't teil which; hot le that as it will as soon as ho breathed his last the doctors gave over all hopes of his recovery. I need not tell you anything about' bis aire, for yon well knw that in December next, he would have been twenty-five years old lacking ten months, and had hex lived till then, be would then Lave been just six menti s dead. His property now devolves on his next of kin who all died some time ago, so that I expect it will be di vided between us; and yon know bis property was something very considerable, for he had a floe estate which was sold to pay his debts, and the remainder he lost in a horse race; but it was the opinion of everybody at the time, that he would have won the race, if the horse he run against had not been too fast for him. I never saw a man, and the doctors all say so, that ob served directions and took medicine better than he Md. He said he had as leave dnnk gruel as M ine if it hnf onlv the same tnste, and would as soon take jalap as eat beef-steak, if it had the same relish. But poor soal! he will never eat or drink more, and you have not a living relation in the world, except myself and your two eoa. ins, who were killed in the last war. I can't dwell on this mournful subject, and shall seal my letter with black sealing-wax, and put on it your nude's coot of arms, so I beg von not to break the seal when yorropen the letter, and don't open it till three or four days nftr vou receive rt, br which time yon will be prepared for the sorrowful tidings.- When you come to this place, ston and do not read any more till next. P.S. Don't write me again till yon receive this. Governor of MaFachn$ctt and Prof, Webster, The Boston Traveler of the 19ih inst, publishes a long Address of Gov.

The following are his closing remaiks: If the circumstances disclosed on the trial are relied on to support his statement, the reply is that those cir cumstances were urged in bis favor before the jury, and they have decided against Lira; The facts of the ap palling case aic iiefore the world j they will hereafter fill one of the gloomiest pages in the record of crime amongst cixilized men.
