BALTIMORE CLIPPER.
SATURDAY MORNING. SBFT. 5, 1846.
DOCTORS WILL DISAGREE. Sir John Herschel,
at a lato meeting ot'tho British Association, fur
the advancement of science, is said to have ex
pressed the opinion, that the tcinperaturo of the
moon's climate must be very high, "far above
that of boiling water." The reason assignod is,
"that its surface is exposed for fourteen days at
a time, to the unmitigated and continual heat
of the sun." Doctor Lardner taught that the
moon has neither atmosphere nor water, and is
in fact, nothing but a mass of uninhabitable
rocks. If he be correct, then Sir John flerschel
is wrong; for we apprehond that there can bo
no temperature of climate, hot or cold, upon a
planet where neither air nor water exists. But
we have no faith in Dr. Lardner's theory, and
as little in that of Sir John Herschel, as stated
above. We believe that "sun, moon and
stars," were all created as the abodes of ration
al creatures, and that the Deity has givon to
each the elements necessary to the existence
and happiness of the beings which inhabit it.
The great orror with most astronomers, is, in
supposing that the sun is a hot body, casting
out fiery and luminous particles in every direc
tion —when a calm examination of facts will
demonstrate the absurdity of such a theory.
Wo would as soon believe, with Dr. Lardner,
that the meteoric stones which occasionally fall
upon the earth, are cast from volcanoes in the
moon, as that the sun is a ball of fire, or sur
rounded by the olements of heat and light—
elements which exist only in imagination, and
cannot be exhibited by any chemical or other
process. _ _
RAILWAY TO OREGON. We have had in
our possession for some weeks past, the report
made by Mr. Breese, from tho committee on
public lands of the Senate, "to whom were re
ferred a memorial of sundry citizens of Indiana,
praying tho con-truction of a national rail-road
from the Mississippi to the Columbia River,
and the memorial of Asa Whitney, suggesting
the means, and submitting a proposition, for
tho construction of such road from Lake Michi
gan to the Pacific Ocean."
The report is entirely favorable to the pro
position of Mr. Whitney—demonstrates its
practicability—its effect in enhancing tho value
of public lands—and its immense importance to
the country in a commercial point of view.—
The repert contains an elaborate argument on
the subject, and a variety of statistical informa
tion shewing the vast increase which would
probably be produced in the commerce of the
nation, by the construction of the proposed
rail-road. On this head there can be no doubt,
for the road would become the great thorough
faro of commerce between the East Indies and
Europe. The only doubt we had was, as to
the practicability of making the road: and this
is entirely removed by the facts submitted in
this report. Amitting, then, that there is no
natural impediment to the construction of the
road, it becomes necessary to enquiro whether
the means proposed by Mr. Whitney, will be
adequate to the object. This being an all-im
portant point, it has been examined with great
care by the committee, who say:
"Those means are to be derived from the
sale of the public lands already acquired, and
to be acquired by the extinguishment of the
Indian title, to the breadth of thirty miles on
each side of the road, extending from Lake
Michigan to the shores of the Pacific."
"Through a considerable extent of the route
the land is said to be unsuitable for settlement
and cultivation, and could not, therefore, be ex
pected to sell. But for about 700 miles from
tho eastern terminus, the lands are said to be
of good quality, though for tho most part desti
tute of timber, and would readily sell at §1 25
per acre, if the road be made; which, estimating
that there would be 26,800,000 acres, would
produce the sum of $33,600,000. Calculating
that in the 1,483 miles from the Sohth Pass to
the mouth of the Columbia, 1,000 miles of that
distance would be found of sufficient value, in
consequence of tho construction of the road, to
command the same price, (and it is believed
that the value of agricultural productions, con
nected witii the water-power to be found there
for manufacturing purposes, Fully justifies this
estimate,) there would be 38,400,000 acres,
which would amount to §18,000,000: and to
gether these sums would amount to §31,500,-
000, without considering of any value the in
termediate distance of 1,113 miles, forming an
area of 32,739,200 acres of land; but which,
taking it at the worst, must have at least some
verdant and valuable spots, which would be
como desirable for small settlements, and as
depots for the use of the road and for commodi
ties and productions f intersecting veins or
latoral channels of trade and commerce. The
length of the proposed road being 2,630 miles,
and the estimate for its construction, according
to Colonel Abert, being §20,000 per mile, the
prbbuble cost would be §52,600,000, leaving
an estimated surplus for tepairs, and to keep
tho parts in operation until the whole is com
pleted, of §28,900,000. This would appear,
on full reflection, to bo a moderate and safe cal
culation; and, moreover, the commilleo have
reason to believe that., from the exciting inter
est which would not fail to surround tilts un
dertaking, when once begun, tho pressure for
acquisition and investments in the fertile part
of these lands, and in the vicinity of so oxten
sivo a work, would place their value at least a'
tho minimum price of the public lands. The
committee, therefore, incline to believe tha
the means proposed are abundantly sufficicu
for the end in view."
W ; think that it is thus pretty clearly demon
strated, that this invaluable public work can be
constructed without tho advance of a dollar by
the genera! government; and, in fact, with groat
benefit to tho rovenua of tho country, as it must
necessarily bring into the market at an enhanc
ed value, large quantities of tho public land,
which would otherwise remain unsaleable and
useless. 1
It is supposed that, should the road be made,
Teas carl be transported from China to London
iuforty-fivedays—and such will no doubt prove
to be the fact, especially as improvements are
constantly being made in steam-machinery.
The committee urge many and strong reasons
why the road should be made; and we hope
that they will have their due weight with Con
gress. But, should prejudice, or other cause,
frustrate the design at thiß time, tiie work will,
unquestionably, be hereafter constructed; for, it
is impossible that the numerous advantages
which would arise from it to the nation, can be
long overlooked. It may bo, that the terminus]
of the road on the Pacific, will bo changed; and
that, instead of the Columbia river, it will take
the direction of the bay of San Francisco, in
California. Hut, even if this be designed, it
should not retard the commencement of the
work.
We presume that the subject will be again
brought before Congress at the next session, and
that the bill which accompanied the report of
the committee, will be called up iu tho Senate
for consideration. As we are a "go-ahead"
nation in most things, (and in some things a
slower motion, would, perhaps, he preferable,)
we trust that ivu shall proceed with as little
delay as possible with this great and magnifi
cent work, which will inako our country the
great thoroughfare of all nations.
STOPPING THE PERFORMANCE. At Buffalo,
the most interesting part of a rather slim per
formance at the circus of Howes ft Co., on
Wednisday evening, was an attempt made by
a constable Pierce to arrest the clown, Mr.
Rico. As the story runs, one of the band had
discoveid during the day that the clown was
rather too familiar with his wife, and made a
demonstration upon him with whips, pistols,
&c., but had not been able to chastise him to
his satisfaction. Ho therefore sworo out a war
rant, which was placed in the hands of the of
ficer. An attempt was made to arrest him in
the evening, while performing in the ring, but
he shewed fight, and succeeded in gaining the
dress ng-room, whore he quickly slipped off his
"Merry Andrew" dress, which was transferred
to a friend, who appeared in the ring, while the
clown escaped in another.
MORALS OK BOSTON. A writer in the Courier
gives a dark picture of the retrograde of virtue
in Boston. In Ward 2, ho says, the overseer
and assessor told me, there were over 200 drink
ing places, many of them kept by low and
worthless characters- It is computed that from
600 to 800 rum bowling alleys are in operation,
to the ruin of many youth, to say nothing of
the boys educating there for the House of Cor
rection. As to the billurd rooms and gambling
places, they occupy the upper rooms of the chief
corners of many principal streets, and have their
bars, as tho usual appendages of such vile places.
And last, though not least, licentiousness
abounds as a common accompaniment of the
foregoing. Boston is advancing backwards
certainly.
PREVENTION OF RAILROAD ACCIDENTS. The
New York True Sun says, that an invention,
by which its author proposes to do away with
railroad accidents in futuie, is in that city. Its
object is the arresting of the speed of locomo
tives and trains by a mere touch of the engi
neer's hand, whenever this is rendered expe
dient by an obstruction on tho track, appre
hended collision, removal of a rail, wrong turn
of a switch, danger of running off, or any tiling
of the sort. Tho purpose is effected by clamp
ing the rail, not merely under the locomotive,
but under all the cars in tho train, so as to
bring the whole from the swiftest speed to a
dead stand still in tho course of a few seconds.
NEW YORK DEMOCRATS. A groat meeting
of the Democracy of New York was held at
Tammany Hall on Wednesday evening, to
congratulate each other and the country at
large upon the success of the measures passed
by Congress at its last session. In the midst
of the proceedings a flare-up occurred between
Mike Walsh and Capt. Rynders, which pro
duced any thing but peace and harmony among
the "unterrified." After this was quieted, re
solutions were passed approving of the leading
measures of the administration.
CHEAPEST. The Newburyport Heiald states
that, the cheapest printing cloth we have ever
seen cost about 1 7 Sc. for the cotton, and the
same for labor, while the incidental charges a
mounted to full 3-4 c. more, making 4 l-2c. a
yard. We doubt whether any can be made for
less than this, which does not include any in
terest on the capital employed.
MR BIDDLE'S PLACE. Andalusia, formerly
the country seat of Nicholas Biddlo, has been
rented by John Sherwood, a gardoner of Phila
delphia, who intends to devote himself largely
to the cultivation of the grape, of which there
are many splendid varieties growing there
already.
SOME DIFFERENCE. The first regular mail
in this country commenced its journey from
New York oil New Year's day, 1673, by a
sworn messenger, and "sealed bag," once a
month, to and from "Boston, Hartford, Con
necticut, and places along the road." Now we
transmit intelligence in less than a second.
SI'DPEN AND AWFUL DEATHS Two colored
men, Benjamin Dayton and Loinucl Cropper,
wore employed by Rev. Mr. Prettyrnan, at
Wilmington, Del., to make a sink on his pre
mises near an old one. About 5 o'clock on
Tuesday afternoon they were almost instan
taneously suffocated by the Haul air from the
old sink rushing in upon them.
HORRIBLE. J din Belts, of R Chester, ran
off Irom his wife list week, with his wife's sis
tor. Ha cut the w res of the telegraph so that
tho news should not travel before liiin. This
is sovcring three connections at once—himself
from his wife, his .vile from her sister, and the
train of the lightning line.
MORTALITV AMONG HORSES. The We-t
Jersey Telegraph says that quite a number of
horses liavo died in the neighborhood of Green
wich, within I lie past foitnight, of a discaso, as
we bolieve, usually called Blind Staggers.
LIBERAL DONATION. Tho corner stone of
a new Protestant Episcopal Church, was laid
at Norwich, (Ct.,) on Monday last: Bishop
Lee, of the Diocese of Delaware, officiated.—
The church will be a beautiful edifice, and one
gentleman has given $lO,OOO toward tha cost ]
of it. '
WYATT, THE MURDERER. The Sheriff ol
Cayuga county, N. Y., in a letter to the Toc
sin, says, in relation to VVyalt:—"The life of
Wyatt, taken down by his counsel as I under
stand, discloses the career of one of the most
abandoned robbers and murderers, from the
age of fifteen, without change, except in the
degree of ferocity, down to the scaffold, that
any man has read or imagined. Ho went to
the rope with vengeance breathing from his
lips, and died without a show of contrition for
his numerous confessed robberies and murders."
ECCLESIASTICAL VS. CIVIL LAW. Mr. WM.
Row, of Groton, Connecticut, some time since
obtained a divorce from his wife, she having a
dislike to his mother, and insisting on her not
living in the family, or a separation. Mr.
Row, a short time ago, married a member of
his Church. An Ecclesiastical Council was
called to investigate the case, who, although
they admitted that by the laws of the land, Mr.
Row was justifiable, yet gave as a verdict that
Mr. and Mrs. Row, by the law of the Bible,
are living in open adultery, and they recom
mend that they be excommunicated.
GONE OVER. The Philadelphia Spirit ol
the Times has joined the "unholy alliance,"
who have a monopoly of the telegraph. The
Times, which recently very bitterly denounced
the free trade tariff law, now gives it its support.
Is that the price of admission, or has the mot
ley crew found it necessary to call for aid from
thoso it at first vainly attempted to crush.
FIRE AF CARLISLE. On Tuesday night, the
building occupied by James H. Graham, Esq.,
in South Hanover street, Carlisle, was destroy
ed by fire. The store of Mr. Charles Barnitz,
in an adjoining building, was literally gutted,
under the impression that the building could
not be saved; and the Volunteer office was un
fortunately "knocked into pi," under the same
erroneous impression.
GOOD ENOUGH FOR BOARDERS. A landlady,
a few days ago, went into a grocery store to
purchase tea, but found it all too dear. The
clerk told her at last that he had some old tea
he could soli at twenty-five cents a pound, and
produced some that had been thrown aside for
a year or two—she examined it and exclaimed
"oh! that is good enough for boarders, weigh me
out ten pounds!"
STEAMBOAT RACE. We learn from the New
York True Sun, that the captain of the fam
ous steamboat Oregon has challenged the own
ers of the new steamboat Atlantic to run a race
of 90 miles, on a wager of $lO,OOO. Look out
for a blow up.
CITY INTELLIGENCE.
Escort to the Old Defenders. We understand
the officers of the sth Regiment will hold a
mooting this evening for the purpose of making
arrangements to escort the "Old Defenders" to
Mount Clare Depot, on the approaching anni
versary of the battle of North Point. °There
are only four companies now in existence who
wore ongaged in the memorable defence of our
city, and all these companies are attached to
the sth Regiment. This makes it highiy ap
propriate that the escort should come fiom
them.
Discharged. Officers Hays and Snyder, on
Wednesday, made a descent upon the house
No. 48 East Lombard St., occupied by Horsnh
Rose, and obtained a number of coats, and sil
ver spoons, on the supposition of their being
stolen. On Thursday, one of the spoons was
identified by a lady, and one of the coats by
Mr. Edward Moon, as their property, stolen
some months since. An examination of Ruse
was had yesterday before Samuel Manning,
Esq , and there being no proof ol his having
obtained the articles, knowing thorn to bo sto
len, he was discharged. All the goods, with
the exception of the spoons and coat identified,
were delivered up to him.fj
Savings Bank. It will be seen by an adver
tisement in this day's American that the offieo
of the Savings Bank of Baltimore has been re
moved fiom the Exchang Buildings to the house
at the north-west corner of Gay and Second
streets, lately purchased by the Bank. The
business of this Bank, which for many years
has been extensive, and which has been con
stantly on the increase, will now be conducted
in more suitable and convenient apartments
than heretofore, and its books and papers will
have the protection of fire-proof vaults, which
have been built and secured in the best maimer.!
The vaults, in order to provide against any f'u-j
turo contingency, have been rendered thiefj
proof as well as fire proof, but we learn that it
is not the intention of the Board of Directors to
depart from their past mode of transacting their
business, and keeping the funds.— American.
U. S. District Court. The Grand Jury hav
ing transacted all the business brought before
them, were finally discharged yesterday, with
the thanks of the Court. No business being
ready for trial, the Court adjourned until tins
morning.
Warm Weather. For several days past, the
heat of the weather has been almost insuffera
ble. Yesterday at 2 o'clock, P. M , the Ther
mometer in our office was up to 92 degrees,
and but fcr a breeze which flittered by at tunes,
it would have been more oppressive than it
was. In these times of war, excitement, and
heat, our only advice is to keep cool if you
can.
Arrivals. Maj. General Edmund P. G lines,
and Gen. Brooke, arrived in this city on Thurs
day evening, from Washington, and took lodg
ings at Barnum's City Hotel. 'I hey left yes

Thursday afternoon lust to the shores of the
Spring Gardens Co: the purpose of taiget tiring.
The prize, a M.il cse cross, was won try Mr.
Emanuel Stockett, one of the City police, a
number of the corps.
Otvner Wanted. A small boy was artested
yesterday and taken to the office of C G
Ridgley, Esq , on the charge of having in his
pos-ossion several bundles of Hose Rivets,
which it is supposed he oame not honestly by.
He stated that ho found thain in Creamer's
Lumber Yard. They liavo been left at the of
fice of the Justice f r identification.
To Arms! Sergeant Twist witli his "spirit
stirring drum and oar-piercing fife" passed our
office yesterday beating up recruits. A great
