THE DAILY EXCHANGE.
UNDER die above title it is proposed to
conduct and publish in the city of Baltimore a first
class Commercial and Political MORNING NEWSPAPER.
This enterprise lias been prompted by the conviction
that the rapid growth of Baltimore in population and
wealth, its constantly augmenting trade, aud its conse
quently increased commercial and political importance,
not only justify but demand an effort to introduce into the
field of journalism that element of competition, which, in j
all other branches of business, has so materially contribu
ted to the prosperity of the city,
"THE EXCHANGE.With regard to the name, —if an
apology were needed, for thus introducing what may per
haps be deemed a novelty in the nomenclature of journal j
ism,—it has been adopted, not simply for its peculiar ap- j
propriateness in connection with those commercial inter
ests to which a paper of the character proposed must lie j
largely devoted, but in its wide and more comprehensive !
acceptation, as embracing within its scope all those topics 1
which come within the province of the public press. :
Ist, NEWS.—It will, of course, be the first aim of the i
proprietors to furnish the readers of THE EXCHANGE ,
with the most prompt, full and authentic intelligence upon i
all matters of public interest, at home and abroad ; and to
secure the accomplishment of this result, and the perfec
tion of every arrangement required to place THE EX
CHANGE in this particular on a level with the best jour
nals of the country, no necessary expense' or exertion will
2d. COMMERCE—The commercial department of the pa
per will include, not only the usual daily reports and
weekly reviews of the markets, domestic and foreign, com
piled with fulness and accuracy, but a frequent editorial j
discussion of the leading financial questions of the day,
with regard to which the mercantile community naturaliy ,
look to the public press for comment and suggestion.
3d. POLITICS.—The interests of commerce and the state
of the markets are so constantly and intimately affected
by the aspect of political affairs throughout the world, that
a journal which aspires to be any thing more than a mere 1
commercial reporter or daily price current, must necessa- ;
sarily devote a large space in its columns to the dissemi- i
nation of political intelligence, and the discussion of polit !
ieal questions. In this department of the paper, which, !
apart from its commercial importance, also possesses a
peculiar and exclusive interest of its own, it will be the
object of THE EXCHANGE to preserve a position of honest
and fearless independence, equally removed from servile
partisanship upon the one hand, and timid neutrality upon
the other. * ;
4th, LITERATURE AND ART.—Candid and impartial re
views of current literature and contemporaneous art, mu
sical and dramatical criticisms, by competent judges, and
original contributions upon subjects of literary or scientific I
interest, will always find an appropriate place in the col- !
umns of THE EXCHANGE, and it will be the constant
aiul of the proprietors to render it a valuable and interest- (
ing journal for the family as well as for the counting- !
PATAPSCO FEMALE INSTITUTE, MARYLAND
''jPIIE TRUSTEES ol the Patapsco Female
X Institute announce to the public that the additional
building, and improvements commenced by them a year ago
in accordance with the subjoined resolutions, are now com
plete These improvements have not been made with a
view to increase the school, but for the greater conveni
ence and comfort of the usual number of pupils.
The new chapel is a handsome and most appropriate
structure, for the exclusive use of the inmates of the In

is furnished with a new organ of fine construction and ex

the present has been attended with unprecedented suc

It has pre-eminence in healthfulness. The pupils avoid
ing, on the one hand, the debilitating effects of a Southern
climate, and on the other the rigors of the North, have
few of the interruptions incident to both these climates.
It is sufficiently near to the city of Baltimore to enjoy the
benefits of a city without any of its evils.
As an Institution oflearning it has the advantage of a
full organization, a resident chaplain, ami a corps of ac
comptished teachers and professors, called together from
time to time in the long experience of those having c harge
of the Institute.
The Trustees of the Patapsco Female Institute, having
been duly notified by Mrs. Lincoln Phelps of her intention
to resign her office of principal at the close of the present
school year, have elected Robert 11. Archer as her succes
sor. The eminent success of Mr. Archer in conducting for
many years a School for Young Ladies in the city of Balti
more, entitles him to our confidence as a person peculiarly
qualified to maintain the present high standing, and insure
the permanent prosperity of the Institution; and with this
view we are engaged in the erection of another building in
addition to the present extensive accommodations of the

ANNAPOLIS, March 6th, 1858.
To THE EDITORS OF THE EXCHANGE :
Gentlemen —l have read with some surprise your
comment on my communication in reply to your
correspondent C., denouncing the bill to incorporate
'•The Central African Society," now pending before
the Legislature. As to the character and motives
! of your correspondent you are, of course, better
qualified to judge than I. for you know who he is,
and Ido not. 1 accept your assertion that he
not actuated bv the motives which I imputed tohiui
—but it is apparent that he has grosslv misrepre
sented the purpose and scope of the bill, and, in do
ing so, has grossly assailed me, who am responsible
for the bill, although I am in nowise interested in
it, further than, as a citizen of the United States, I
am interested in any and all measures which will
increase our commerce, or which will aid in ridding
us of free blacks. Whether his representations be
ignorantly or maliciously made, I hold that you, as
the conductors of a free press, are bound to permit
any one who has been unjustly assailed through
your columns to use your paper to repel the assault.
This courtesy is due to any one, however humble,
and in this case it is due to the members of the Le
gislature, before whom the bill is pending, and es
pecially to the committee by whom the bill was re
ported, as well as to Mr. Bowen and myself.
You too, as well as your correspondent, denounce
the bill as a "MONOPOLY." I have too much expe
rience as an Editor, and know too well, that in the
haste of composition, we often use words without
due consideration, and therefore cannot believe that
you will seriously contend that the bill, if passed,
will create a "monopoly."
Webster defines a "monopoly" to be:
"The sole power of vending any species of goods,
obtained either by engrossing the articles in market
by purchase, or liy a license from the government,
confirming this "privilege. Thus the East India
Company in Great Britain, lias a monopoly of the
trade to the East Indies, granted to them bv char
Now if you will examine the bill, you will see that
it does not propose to give an exclusive, or "xole
potrer" to trade with Central Africa, and therefore
it will not create a monopoly. The legislature have
no power to grant such monopoly. They cannot
.prevent any one from trading with Central Africa,
and a moments reflection must convince you, that
you have done Mr. Bowenandme great injustice bv
charging that he seeks or that I advised him, to ask a
monopoly of trade. He quotes McGregor, tojshow that
the tobacco used by the English in their trade with
Western Africa, is worth $8,000,000 per annum, and
that the trade with Morocco, is worth 510.000.000
per annum. For a Company, of $10,000,000 to
monopolise such a trade is impossible.
So far from wishing to get a monopoly, Mr. Bow
en has urged in lectures, in sermons, in letters, in
essays and in his book, as well as in a memorial to
Congress, the importance of the trade to Central
Africa, as a means of aiding the cause of coloniza
tion and of christian missions, in Africa. He is a
missionary and not a trader. He does not seek to
become a trader in Africa or elsewhere. Nor do X.
But agreeing with him that the trader should go
with the missionary, and believing that under a
charter he could induce others to invest the requi
site funds to open a valuable commerce, I advised
him to ask the charter. He is now in New York,
publishing a Dictionary and Grammar of the " Yu
roba" language, and having been his adviser, I feel
called upon to take upon myself the whole respon
sibility of the measure —not only because he is un
justly assailed during his absence, but because it is
due to him, and to the cause of missions, in which
he is engaged, to denounce as 1 do, as most unjust
and unmerited, the imputation that he has for him
self any other purpose than to promote the cause of
missions in Central Africa.
I trust, gentlemen, that you will recur to his
book on Central Africa, and that you and your cor
respondent will feel it your duty to retract the im
putations contained in your strictures on the bill in
I)I FF GREEN.

The committee appointed to prepare a suitable
memoir on the death of Bishop Waugh. to go on the
journal of the Conference report the following:
That whilst in common with all the conferences
we mourn the loss the church has sustained in the
death of Rev. Beverly Waugh. D.D., its senior su
perintendent, we especially feel it as the largest di
vision of the old Baltimore conference, with which
he stood so long identified, to render an humble
tribute of our regard and affection to his memory,
and to record our testimony for generations to come
to the piety which adorned his private and public
life, to the power and success that attended his min
istrations and to the wisdom that marked his coun
sels in all the various relations he sustained to our
common Zion. Therefore,
Resolved, That whilst this conference deeply de- j
plores the loss the church has sustained in the fleath
of one whose unblemished purity of life, whose zeal j
and fidelity as a minister of the gospel, and the wis- '
dom of wliose counsels as a general superintendent j
contributed so much to her strength and prosperity,
yet bows submissively to that all wise Providence j
that has removed him from labor to reward.
Resolved, That we endeavor to imitate his fidelity
as a minister of the Lord Jesus "doing the work of
an Evangelist," and that being affected and ad
monished Dy his death we will consecrate ourselves
more fully to God, and as Christian ministers "give
ourselves continually to prayer and to the ministry
of the word."
Resolved, That we tender to the bereaved widow
and family of our beloved Bishop, the expression of
our affectionate sympathy, and entreat for them the
continued care and consolation of Him who is "the
Father of Mercies and the God of alt comfort."
Resolved, That a copy of this memoir be sent to
the family of the deceased by the hand of the Secre
tary of the Conference.
(Signed) JAS. H. BROWN,
The report was accepted, and ordered to be placed
upon the journal.
The Rev. Mr. Brown, of the Board of Stewards,
then continued the call upon the members for claims
upon the funds.
The claim of the Rev. John Thomas was refused,
bv a vote of the Conference, upon the ground that
he was very well to do in the world, and was not
I The Rev. Dr. Wise, Agent of the Sunday School
j Union, and editor of the Sunday School Advocate,
was then introduced to the Conference, and spoke
! at some length.
| He referred to the character of the books publish
] ed by the Sunday School Union, and commended
I their use to the brethren, as containing all the tenets
recognised by the Methodist Episcopal Church.—
Such books should be put into the hands of the Sun
day School children, in preference to other publi
cations. He was sorry to see in the libraries or some
thriving schools, almost every volume bearing the
mark of other houses. Ilehoped the brethren would
bear his remarks in mind, lie then gave some in
| teresting statistics, in regard to Sunday Schools,
| and the Sundav School Union.
After Dr. W'ise closed his remarks, the Rev. Rob
ert Cadden moved that it be made a subject of im
peachment for any preacher to introduce into the
I Sunday Schools, other publications than those ema
nating from the Sunday School Union. The motion
was not seconded.
The Rev. Mr. Hildt said the course of the "Sun
day School Advocate" was objectionable to a great
majority of the members of this Conference, on ac
count of introducing into its columns a subject
which could very well be let alone.
The Rev. Jas. H. Brown said that a man must be
I wanting in common sense who would introduce this
j subject into such a paper, designed as it was for cir
I culation in different sections of the country,
j A gentleman called Mr. Brown to order, as being
i personal in his remarks to Dr. Wise, who is now
I upon the floor.
Mr. Brown—Very well, I modify my remark. He
I shows a great want of discretion."
The Rev. A. A. Reese wished to know how it was,
I that in several works contributed to the church lite
' rature by Dr. Wise this subject is not touched upon,
j but now, as editor of the Sunday School Advocate,
| it is his Alpha and Omega.
I Dr. Wise said it was true he had written
i several books, which were published by the
Sunday School Union. He had first given them
titles, chosen the subject and laid the outlines,
and if it had been necessary, in developing the
plots, to have expounded his views in regard to
this subject of slavery, he would have done so fear
lessly, regardless of either pecuniary benefit or loss
to himself. ~ As editor of the Sunday School Advo
cate, he desired to discuss christian themes, and
christian ethics. The subject of slavery he consid
ered under the latter head. Ho therefore intro
duced it mildly and gently, but firmly. He hadta
ken his stand, and his conscience would not allow
him to change his course, if he continued as editor
for the next four years.
Bev. Mr. lteese said that if the course of that paper
upon the subject of slavery was continued, it would
be necessary to discontinue it altogether in his fam
ily, he would not have the minds of his children cor
rupted by reading it.
Rev. Air. Hildt said—Dr. Wise tells us he has tak
en his stand in regard to this subject, and as long as
he edits the paper he will not change his course. If
he persists in doing so, our only remedy is to abol
ish the Sunday School Advocate from our Sabbath
Schools and families, and refuse it our countenance
Rev. Mr. Torrence said he was sorry this discus
sion had sprung up in the Conference at the present
time. He did not wish it to go abroad. He thought
the papers published for circulation among all the
communities of the Methodist Church should be
confined to the discussion of strictly religious sub
jects. We should all unite upon a paper conducted
on such a plan.
r Rev. Mr. Keppler rose to a personal explanation.
Not in order.
Several gentlemen rose to make remarks. The
chair recognized the Rev. Geo. D. G'henowith, who
moved to refer the whole subject to the Sunday
School Committee. The motion was adopted.
The report of the Preachers' Aid Society was
then presented by Mr. Job Smith. It was read by
the Secretary, approved and ordered to be tiled.—
The report states the amount of funds invested bv
the Society amounts to $26,586.95.
The Rev. Mr. Furlong' asked to be excused from
the Committee on the Education of Preachers'
children. He was excused, and the llev. X. B.
Buckingham put in his place.
The Rev. Titos. B. Sargent, chairman of the com
mittee which was appointed to confer with the Rev.
Dr. Durbin, in regard to the formation of a Mis
sionary Society for the Conference, presented a re
port, and also a constitution for the government of
the same. The society will be called "The East
Baltimore Conference Missionary Society."
A motion was made to continue on trial the Rev.
George \V. Conner, who is now ill at Frederick.—
The motion was adopted.
The Rev. Robert S. McWilliams, a local preacher
eligible to Deacon's orders, not being present at the
Conference, it was moved and adopted that he be
continued on trial.
A paper was read bv the Assistant Secretary
from ISonj. F. Hawks, No". 205 W<-st Baltimore street,
offering to make Photographs ol such of the mem
bers as would call at bis establishment.
After singing and prayer by Rev. Mr. Taylor, the
Conference, at Vl} 4 o'clock, adjourned until Mon
day morning at !i o'clock.
[From the Washington Star, March 6th.]
BALTIMORE ANNUAL CONFERENCE OF THE
METHODIST EPISCOPAL CHURCH -AT
WESLEY CHAPEL, WASHINGTON, D. C.
Titian D tv— Continued.
When our report closed yesterday, Rev. Mr.
Phelps was addressing the Conference in advocacy of
the resolutions which he had introduced in a former
session, for the establishment of a weekly religious
journal, to be published in Baltimore, under tiie
direction of the two Conferences. After making a
powerful appeal in favor of the project, he sat down,
and was followed by
Rev. Jatnes Sewell, who stated that his con
troversies were always with controversy itself;
it was always conceded that religious quarrels
were the most irreligious quarrels in the world.
Rev. Mr. Wilson had to-day thought he had
found two gentlemen who were just the tnen for the
editors of this paper; for himself he thought one of
these men would not do; one of them was too fiery,
and the other was too briery—both had given in
this meeting specimens of their abilities, and he
thought it would not do to have them at the edito
rial table. If this paper should be ordered, and we
were assailed, we must defend ourselves, and there
by get up a religious argument which would lead
to quarrels. Let us try and conquer by love. It
would conquer every thing but the devil." This [ta
per might do good; hut they must getvery religious
Rev. Mr. Myers followed, saying that, when this
project was first started, he had been in favor of it;
but, from the report which had been received, it
was apparent that we have got to support the burden
alone. The East Baltimore Conference had drawn
away from the idea very decidedly. Thev had in
their deliberations very coolly laid the whole mat
ter on the table. The speaker thought it best to
defer this matter until the next General Conference.
Ho proposed that, as the minds of all had been made
up, they now take the sense of the Conference at
once, upon the subject. This proposition was after
ward withdrawn and the subject left open for fur
ther discussion, and thereupon the Conference was
Rev. John L. Gilbert, who took very decided
ground in favor of the project of starting a paper
at once. He did not like the idea of a controversial
paper: he did not so understand this project. In
the midst of this controversial warfare, if we had
such a paper as is now proposed, we could, through
its columns, let our true position be known to those
who were in a state of doubt as to it.
Rev. George Brooks stated it as his opinion, that
it was our duty to our people and to our God to fur- i
nish the church with this paper. It would be heart
ily sustained, and would effect just the work requir- |
ed. He should vote for this paper, hoping it would ;
meet the requirements of the Conference.
Rev.X. J. B. Morgan also, in a somewhat length\
and very able manner, advocated the proposed
"Christian Advocate." Their people wanted in
formation, and l>y its means could bo informed of
their position. There was a general dearth in the
bounds of this Conference of religious literature. |
Let the work go on, and at once. The establish
ment of this paper would directly tend to the
increased circulation of their books. There were
but few books adapted to the wants of the people in
circulation, and the reason was they did not know
of them. Jf this paper were to be established it
would inform those in want of the proper books
of light on religious subjects and of consequence
increase the circulation of religious books an hun
Itev. Mr. Clemm stated that, as one of the com
mittee who had reported on the pending resolutions,
he felt it his duty to speak. As to the proposed
character of the paper, the committee did not pro
pose to give it a controversial character. It was
not the committee's purpose to provoke controver
sy ; the controversy was already provoked, and it
was with a view to its allayment that the proposed
paper was to be established". They would send out
their paper, in order that good-toned religious read
ing may pervade the minds of their people ; they
must purify the moral atmosphere, and their pro
ject must and would prevail. Of all the religious
papers now published in the country, which one was
a proper exponent of the platform on which they
stood? Xot one. This paper was intended strictly
as a religious paper, for family distribution; and
the speaker believed the Conferences had the ability
and energy to conduct it successfully.
The speaker here suspended his 'remarks for a
motion for adjournment.

fairs of the Metropolitan Church, as follows :
Rev. E. It. Veecli, ltev. E. X. Brown, and Rev.

that no less than three male paupers and live bovs
perished in the conflagration.
LONDON, Saturday, Feb. 13, 1858.
The Tunes says the India bill merely embodies, in
a few and obvious changes, the conclusions to
which all men have been rapidly approaching as
often as they have had occasion to deplore the
cumbrous machinery and tardy operations of our
Indian government and the want of any real re
sponsibility; it will remove useless agencies, in
terventions and delays. There is not a shadow of
wrong—not a man, woman or child is the worse tor
The London Neirs was prepared to find the bill
entirely subvert all those constitutional principles
on which the safety of that empire has been hitherto
believed to depend; but it was not prepared to learn
the utter incapacity of Government to make out
even a prima facie case for destroying the double
Government at any time, and much* less for destroy
ing it at a period of great popular excitement.
I\ bile the country itself is still rent by internal con
vulsions, the most important measure" ever fallen to
Parliament in our time has been incubated in haste,
in ignorance, in confusion; and, instead of solid and
substantial facts and weighty arguments, the pro
pounder of this dangerous and destructive scheme
throws out a couple of flatulent claptraps, and
thinks that he has convinced the nation of the wis
dom of his perilous design.
The Chronicle says there is every prospect of a
protracted discussion, but at present there are no
indications as to its probable political or party lean
ings. Monday will supply this deficiency by dis
closing the line to be adopted by the opposition
The Herald thinks, if any charge be needed, it
should be a much less violent one. The blow aimed
by Government at the East India Company will pro
bably recoil on themselves.
The second leader ofYAe London Times is on the
Government of India and Lord Canning's letter,
which The Times considers as a valid defence to the
most popular charges against him.
The third article is on recruiting for the army.—
For the last five months the recruits attested have
averaged very little short of 4,000 a month for the
infantry of the line alone, and 6,000 for all arms of
the service together. These numbers would repre
sent, within a fraction, a total levy of 70,000 troops
a year—a rate amply sufficient, if maintained, to
answer all demands upon us. Our machinery may
be somewhat defective. It would probably be of
material service if persons of iutiuence, in our coun
ties would again bestir themselves, and let the la
boring classes know, from authority above 'suspic
ion, that really good treatment, and in many cases
a vastly improved condition, awaits a lad on enter
ing the*army. The machinery would be more effec
tive, too, if it were permanent, and if some species
of organization were preserved, which might be
exerted with more or less activity, according to the
nature of the demand.
The News thinks our Government ought to take
a stand against the Neapolitan Government in the
affair of the Cagliari steamer.
The Herald says the accusations and criticisms of
Mr. Roebuck last night, afford a painful contrast to
the temperate, yet dignified, language of Lord
Accounts, received in Paris, state that more troops
are required in China, to carry out the intended
No more addresses from the army are to be pub
lished in the Moniteur, or any other paper publish
ed in France.
One of the Paris correspondents of Le Nord says
that the military addresses in the Moniteur have not
been the only manifestations of feeling against Eng
land on the part of the French colonels; some of
those honored with the Order of Bath having ex
pressed a desire to return their decorations. The
Minister of War, according to Le Nord, speedily put
a stop to these demonstrations.
It is stated by the Paris correspondence of the
Indepcndance that, at the interview between the
new Minister of the Interior and the principal offi
cers in his department, he announces that his ap
pointment was not provisional, but that it was mane
to carry into effect the plans of the Emperor, and
that those who could not give their entire support
to the new policy of the government had better re
sign their posts.
The Journal de Frankfort states that the commer
cial crisis in St. Petersburg caused several failures,
with liabilities ranging from 50,000 to '200,000 silver
rubies. Stieglitz & Co. are reported to have lost
largely, and byway of compensation it is said the
Emperor has permitted them to export one million
gold imperials, the ten per cent, export duty being
suspended in their favor. It seems propable that
these particulars involved great exaggeration.
The correspondent of The Times states that, ac
cording to letters from Odessa, the number of Rus
sian sailors in the Black Sea is not to bediminished,
as the vessels of war are not to exceed a certain
number. The Grand Duke Constantine has given
orders that all sailors who were in the service of
the Government shall be sent on board merchant
men, and he suqject to the same discipline as before,
and have the same pay ; and inder that thev may
not forget any part of their duties, mercantile ves
sels are to carry guns. When Russia has completed
her fleet of mercantile steamers in the Black Sea,
its neutrality will exist onlv in name,
It is again stated that Schamvt had submitted to
Russia, but Le Nord, which retrained at the time
from publishing the above news, states that the last
intelligence from Circassia does not confirm the
submission of Schatnyl. The result of the last ope
rations of the Russian troops was the occupation ol
the plateau of Tehechtna, where they had driven
out the Circassians. Schamyi, with a small number
of his band who remained faithful, had found a re
fuge in the remote gorges of the central chain ot
CONSTANTINOPLE, Feb. 6, 1858.
Fuad Pasha will be the Turkish Plenipotentiary
at the Paris Conferences.
The Commissioner of the Porte has sent in an ul
timatum to Prince Danilo oi* Montenegro.
A Vienna letter states that the petition brought
by the Rajahs of Herzegovina to the Turkish Am
bassador at Vienna, is signed by about one hundred
communes. The petition asks for the suppression
of the present tax of one-third, and the re-estab
lishment of the former tax of a ninth. The tax of
p. third is said to be the cause of the discontent
which prevails among the population.
The Porte has sent two Commissioners to make
such inquiries in the state of affairs in Herzegovina
and Bosnia, as will lead to a radical reform of the
causes complained of. The Commissioners are also
ordered to collect all the information which may
