WEDNESDAY, APRIL 89, l■-> 10. FOR PRESIDENT. WILLIAM HENRY HARRISON. FOR VICE-PRESIDENT. JOHN TYLER. INDIAN TREATIES. There is nothing which could place the Whig can didate ill a more advantageous contrast with the present and pa:>t administrations, than the treaties made by tln m with the Indians. General Harrison has held more Indian treaties, and extinguished their title toaaore lands, than any other individual in the country. He knew ti.e wants of the Indians, and his treaties were made in good faith to them and to the United States. Possessing the unlimited confidence of his own government, and of the Indians, he repre sented both, and prevented private speculation— He could have amassed untold wealth, but never has suspicion breathed a whisper against his integrity.— Examine his treaties, and it will he found that Iris stipulations opened no door for fraud —invited no in justice to the Indians. Now mark the difference. The present condition of the country is charged to speculation. Who are the speculators? Who made treaties, and so framed them as to create fraudulent speculations 5 Major Eaton and General Toffee made a treaty with the Choctaw nation of Indians, at Dancing Rabbit Creek, -on the -27 th September, IS3O, in which the following donations of land were made : To Greenwood Lailore, Nutackachie and Musliulatubbee, four sections each, being 7,680 David Fulsom, four sections, - - 2,560 To J. Garland, Colonel Robert Cole, Tuppa- ' nahomer, John Pitchlynn, Charles Juzan, Jehokebetubbe, Enychahobia, Ofchona, 2 sections each, " " 10,240 To each ol' certain heads of fhmilies, not exceeding forty in number, ene section each, - * " " " 25,600 To other heads of families, not exceeding 460 three qua rter sections eaeh, - • 220,890 To 400 others, one half section each, 120-noo To 350, one quarter section each, - 56,000 To Picric Juzan, Peter Pitchlynn, Israel Fulsom, Louis Laffore, Benjamin James, Joel H. Nail. G. W. Harkins, Jack Pitch lynn, Hopoyn Jahubbe, OnorKubbe, Ben jamin Laffore, Michael Laffore, aud Al len Yates and wife, each two sections, 16,640 To James L.

W. Wall, Charles Scott, Molly Nail, Susan Colbert, Samuel Garland, Silas Fisher, D. McCurtain, Oaklahoma^, Polly Fillenrthey, Silas Pitchlynn, and Thomas Pitchlynn, James Madison, and Peter, sons of Mushulatubbe, Henry Groves, and John Donly, - , And to Willis Harkin, James B. Hamilton, William Juzen, Tobias Laflorc, Jo. Doke, Jacob Fulsom, T. Hayes, Samuel Worces ter, George Hunter, William Train, Rob ert Nail, and Alexander MoKee, one half section eaeh, - ... 3,8 hi To 4 Choctaw women and their children, 2,6,0 To other heads of families, - - 28,000 Total, 531,840 This treaty contains the following provision: "The several reservations secured under this arti cle, may he sold with the consent of the President of the United States !!" In a letter addressed to the President, dated 15th of February, 1832, General Cass, who understood the Indian character well, says: "The Indians are easily swayed by others, and like •children, if the immediate possession of a favorite ob ject is not obtained, it loses much of its value in their estimat ion." With this knowledge of their character, why did | Major Eaton reserve for these Indians more than half a million acres of the choice land of Mississippi?— The object of the treaty was to extinguish their title ) •and to remove them west of the Mississippi. Why •did he give them a better title, by permitting them to sell, by consent of tin President, the land thus re served? If to speculate was wrong, why did he open , so wide a iicld for speculation? The answer is giv en in the fact that Major Eaton's confidential friends were the first to embark in the speculation; that they formed companies, borrotoed money ffom the banks, andfrom individuals , and went largely into the pur. chase of Indian lands. .Such was the inducement, however, that other parties entered into competition with them, and the collision brought to light nume rous frauds, some of which are referred to in a docu ment-before us, from which wc submit a few c.v ' traits to-morrow . This is a fruitful field, and wo will explore it- VIRGINIA.— The result of the election in Virgi nia shows the onward march of puhlic opinion. It shows that the prejudice which bad been created against General Harrison is giving way, and that there is a steady and fixed determination to oust the present administration. But it shows also how great the influence of the power and patronage of the gov ernment is, when, in the face of sueli exert ions, so laigc a vote should be east for the Destructives. It shows the necessity* of union, concert, conciliation and energy on the part of the people. WANTED.—Several competent persons to act as agents for this paper. None need apply unless they are well recommended. WANTED. —FIFTY BOYS to sell the Tippeca noe Text Book and Pilot Apply at this office, No. 11, Water street. The election for Mayor and Councilmcn of Cnlnm hns Ohio, was held on the 13th inst, and resulted in the entire sncocss of the Whig ticket, by a majority •of 314. VIRGINIA ELECTION. The returns come in strongly from Mrginia, and probably several days will elapse before we shall know the exact state of parties in the but enough is already known, to satisfy us that the State is against the administration on the popular vote, as well as in the Legislature. The reports from the western part of the State, speak of diminished majorities in every county j for instance in Monongalia Co., when they had in 1836 372 majority, they now have about 100—in Harrison, their majority it is reported has been reduced two hundred. We have aimed at accuracy in making up our ta ble 5 and we believe they contain all the authentic intelligence in Baltimore. 1836. 1839. 18-10. 5? o © % 1 I* s f'l f r. * r. d i P f Albemarle, 676 524 2il 423 000 maj. 200 Brooke, 413 181 359 188 392 315 luckimjham, 408 296 402 480 502 513 < 'aroliuc, 317 219 000 IKK) 000 2 Campbell, 477 478 415 530 510 237 Cumberland* 216 241 000 000 000 33 Charlotte, 332 245 325 356 337 343 Clarke, 138 102 150 119 8 000 Flizubeth citv &c. 38 79 70 164 102 243 Fauquier, 363 429 380 437 000 246 Fairfax. 176 230 272 2.2 9 000 Fluvanna, 300 50 000 000 58 249 Frederic, 518 281 600 550 6.">8 593 Hanover, 386 268 4.54 373 000 30 Hampshire. 407 396 495 486 537 600 Henrico, 246 287 4-14 472 329 503 James City, 4 109 000 . 000 000 000 Jefle rsoii," 269 400 350 .*197 355 519 King & Queen?, 275 199 000 000 29 000 Kins George, 152 14 s1 168 168 139 169 Louisa, " 488 116 308 308 338 363 Lunenburg, 202 132 253 210 290 210 Matthews, 131 64 126 68 21 000 Marshall, 297 229 314 308 395 426 Mecklenburg, 420 206 470 180 420 293 Morgan, " 100 46 169 139 000 54 Nansmuond, 76 185 280 294 294 386 Nelson, 249 118 203 346 000 100 Norfolk borough, 98 234 298 430 233 436 Norfolk countv, 163 320 473 514 439 629 Nottoway, 174 70 000 34 207 209 Northampton, 6 284 no opposition to the Whigs.

Wc are indebted tb the politeness of the agent, for the four first numbers of the 12th vol of tins beautiful periodical, and take great pleasure in commending it to the especial attention of our fair readers. The February number is particularly in teresting, as it al>ounds with delightful matter, both of prose and poetry, all which is original, and from some of the finest writers our country can boast of.— The work is Edited by two ladies and two gentle men, all well known in the literary world*, ahd is em bellished with engravings, Music, Embroidery, and the quarterly fashions. i Mr. Nathaniel Hickman, Baltimore street, is the | agent for tliis city. THE SOUTH. —It is pleasant in looking over our ex change papers, to see so many names once familiar to us, rallying in support of Gen. Harrison. Our letters from Georgia, Alabama and North Carolina speak with confidence; and if we form an opinion by the character and numbers who are brought out at the preliminary meetings, we may well hope that these states will all be opposed to the re-election of Mr. Van Buren, although it would be more than we have anticipated. PARTY NAMES. —There is much in a name, and to be appropriate, it should convey a defi nite idea of the character of the party to which it is attached. The administration have assumed to be the Democratic party, and as the opposition have rallied under the Whig banner, many of them have gradually conceded the name, whilst they have denied the identity of their principles. Democracy, is a government of the people, and ma ny are disposed to rally under the democratic banner, because they expect there to find the freest exercise of the popular will. Although names are important, they do not change the nature of things; and a mon archist is no less a monarchist, because, to court pop ular favor, he may have assumed the name of demo crat. Parties should bear names having reference to their measures and principles. When we apply this principle to the administration, we find no name so appropriate as Destructives. They wage a war up on credit, public and private; they have arrested Im provements by the Federal as well as the -state Gov - ernraents; they have reduced the value of property, and of wages; they have paralyzed industry; they have destroyed commerce; they have impoverished the country. The name, therefore, is the most ap propriate one. It is a name that will speak home to every one. It is a name that will keep the ruinous measures of this administration constantly before the eyes of the people. It will come home into every family, in their diminished comforts; in their sym pathies and necessities. It will accustom the labor ing man —the hungry and the naked, to look to a change of rulers for a change of measures. The Pennsylvania Inquirer of yesterday morning, states that arrangements have been made to tow ve:| sels and boats laden with produce, from Delaware citv to Philadelphia. This produce will come through the Tide water Canal, and be conveyed through the canal from the Chescpeakc city to Dela ware city CONFERENCE OF THE METHODIST E PISCOPAL CHURCH. The General Conference of this numerous and respectable denomination of christians, will meet in this city, on Friday next, the Ist of May. We learn from the New York papers, that the Rev. Robert Newton, a very distinguished Minister, and represen tative of the British conference of Wcslcyan Metho dist, has arrived at that city, in the packet ship Unit ed States. He preached at the M. E. church in Greene street, New York, on Monday Evening, on the occasion of the 21st Anniversary of the Metho dist Missionary Society, and was to preach again en Tuesday Evening in the Wcsleyan chapel, Yestry street. The New' York Commercial Advertiser, in speak ing of this eminent divine, says: "We understand that Mr. Newton will leave the city on Wednesday morning, for the General Confer ence at Baltimore, which convenes on the Ist of May. He is expected to preach 011 his way at Philadelphia, on the evening of Wednesday. After the General Conference, Air. N. will return to New York for a short time. East evening we had the happiness to hear from this distirguithed stranger a most fervent and eloquent sermon in Vestty street 30 that he has entered upon his sacred vocation with in afew hours after leaving the ship, just four weeks after he left his own pulpit in Leeds. The passage over has been of the most pleasant kind; religious services were held every day, and Mr. Newton preached once or twice each of the three sabbaths he spent upon the ocean.'? THEATRE, Hoi.lidav Street.—Mrs. Fitzwil. liams made her first appearance this season, on Mon day evening, to a fashionable audience, and as this evening will be the last of her engagement, we would advise the theatre-going portion of the community to avail themselves of this opportunity to enjoy a rich treat, by visiting Old Holliday street House to-night. The part which Mrs. Fitzwilliams sustains in the pieec for this evening, (as will be seen by reference to the advertisement in another column,) is very at tractive, and her well known abilities in her line of acting, cannot fail to draw a crowded house. Mr. J. Wallack, Jr. a favorite, also sustains one of the leading characters of the piece. Governor Porter has appointed Joseph B. Anthony, of Lycoming, to be judge of the new court, created to settle the claims on the estates of Nicholson and Baynton. (OIOIKHr lIL BECOID. PILOT Orrtci, Tuesday, April, 28th, 1840. THE MARKETS.

FIVE DAYS I.ATF.R FROM ENGLAND. The packet ship United States, Captain Rritton, arrived yesterday from Liverpool, bringing dates to the Ist inst. There lias been a reduction on the wheat duty of two shillings per quarter. Ministers are indirectly revising the Corn Laws. In tea nothing was doing, and the cotton market was dull. The ministry had sustained another defeat on the Irish Reform Act. The' Queen is likely to perpetuate the Brunswick line, and until that interesting event takes place, no court favors of any consequence may occur, as these favors are to be reserved for the grand occasion. The most important intelligence from France is the success of Thiers on the secret service money ques tion, which was to bo considered a test of liis ad ministration. His majority was S6, which created great surprise, and every way strengthens the gov ernment. The steam ships President and United States are in dock ready to receive their engines, and may be expected out in July next. There is every reason to believe that there will be a Congress of European monarch®, the ensuing sum mer to decide upon the affairs of the East. This will be an important proceeding, and may derange the plans of Egypt and France, and also Russia and Per sia. 'Dm Schah of Persia lias quitted Teheran with a large army, to tranqiiilize outbreaks in some of the provinces. The Russians have met with reverses in the mountains of Cliiva; and the Emporor will fiual ly tread in the footsteps of .Napoleon, and encounter the same disasters in sending his troops so far from their homes. It will be necessary to have another Congress of Vienna before the atlairs of the East are settled, and we doubt whether their decrees can be as easily enforced in Asia as they have been in F.u rope. Turkey has negotiated a loan with the Rothschild's secured on the customs and the copper-mines. The following paragraph appears in a Hamburgh paper, an which not the least reliance is to be placed. The Rabbis' never tronble themselves with such sub jects, and never move in reform:: Tec Jews. —A Haiulnjjgli paper, the Dorpzeitung, says: "The Jews of Constantinople have, with their Rabbi, declared that they will not wait any longer than another year for their Messiah. If within that time he does not appear, they will conclude that he has already come, and then they will try to discover by what religion he is already recognized. The Rab bi is entirely of this opinion, and has even proposed to his congregation to embrace Christianity forth with." The penny postage works well and is greatly on the increase in England. It is reported, but with what truth we are un able to discover, that France will take part with Turkey against Egypt. It was also rumored that the Bey of Tunis would join Abder Ivadir, with a heavy force, against the French, and that a French fleet would bombard Tangiers in Mo rocco. Affairs in Spain and their finances continue very unsettled. Fanny Essler, it is said, is really coming to this country; can we pay her as much as she earns in Europe! The King of Hollaud will not marry his mis tress, in consequence of the fall in the Dutch l'tlrtds. Up to the close of business on the Stock Ex change, no confirmation was received of the re ported failure of the Russian expedition to Khiva, and it was found difficult to trace the minor to to its source. We were without .any arrivals from abroad throughout the day, except letters brought by a party said to have "arrived overland from Bom bay," dated 16 days later from Canton, and an nouncing the probability of an amicable adjust ment of the. dispute between the Chinese and British, in consequence of the arrival of the new ComMissioner. The news from Syria was that the army,which is compossed of 32 regiments, was well stocked with provisions and ammunition. It had, how erer, suffered much from the severity of the win ter, and one third is said to have perished. It is calculated that each regiment is composed of 2,000 men. A Spanish Capuchin, named Tom maso, who had introduced vaccination at Damas, and who was the only person who practised it, disappeared suddenly as well as his servant. He had been at the house of a Jew, and the Rabbins were imprisoned by the government on suspi picion, though an assassin had not been discover ed. It is surmised that he may have fallen a victim to the fanaticism df the Greek orthodox, who are most violent against the Latins. So it will turn out. The Jews of Damascus are a re spectable body of men, who have been cruelly tortured without any evidence of guilt. A poor bather was dreadfully toitured. The accusations which have been made by the barber, under the most excruciating extremities of corporal suffering, which may be judged from this single specimen—thai on a compressing in strument being applied to his head and temples, his eye balls started from their sockets, and his heard turned white from the agony he sndured. All, however, that he could say waa, that he had seen Father Thomaso walking in one of the streets of the Jew's quarter with 10 of the prin cipal inhabitants. Some curious details are given respecting Sir Moses Montefiore's visit to the Holy Land some time back. On his pilgrimage he gave a talaris to every one of the Isralitcs. He made careful inquiries respecting the several biblical antiqui of the place, and ascertained the amount of duty which the sacred places and villages paid to the Egyptian government, which was 64,000 purses. On coming to Alexandria he offered the Viceroy to pay this sum out of his own pocket, provided the Viceroy would allow him to colonise the places particularised with Israelites, to which proposal the Viceroy assented, provided the colo ny should be considered as national, and not un der European protection.— Times. The sulphur monopoly was at an end in Naples. The Carlists have seized a Spanish vessel at the mouth of the Douro, having on board 880 bales of cotton. The Russians find the themometer at Khiva 17 1-2 degrees below zero. Charles Kembie has been performing at Covent Garden with success. The Moniteur Parisian publishes the follow ing contradiction of the alleged declaration of war by the Emperor of Morocco against France: "Several days since the Government became acquainted with a rumor, which had been in cir culation, respecting a pretended declarationof war of the Emperor of Morocco against France. Dispatches dated Tangiers the 7th of March, and Malaga the 15th, have been received, and make no mention of it. It is therefore, probably incorrect. The booksellers of Paris have united to recom mend to the Ministry to adopt a measure ac knowledging the copyright of foreign authors, and forbidding foreign or clandestine editions. Out of a population of 53,000 who inhabit the 12th nrrondissement of Paris, 14,358 are suppor ted by public charity. Lord Brougham, by special invitation, will vis it the King and Queen of the French, at the Ttiileries, en route to England. Female Insurrection. —There lias been an in surrection of the female inhabitants of Roches de Condrieu, in the Isere, in opposition to the for mation of anew eemetry, supposed to be injuri ous to the interests of several individuals. Two hundred of these Amazons declared their reso lution to die on the spot rather than give up their point, but en the appearance of a detachment of troops order was restored. Letters from Valencia, published bytheEco del Aragon, affirm tbat Cabrera has departed.— It is not known whether he means to enter France, or to embark, Though he should still remain in Aragon—say these letters —he could no longer resist the constitutional cause, because he has lost his influence. It is affirmed that Forcadell, in assembling the greater part of the- troops, intended to conclude a convention like that of Bergara. Though the Biseayan provinces are tranquil some arrests have been made. LIVERPOOL COTTON MARKET. Saturday, March 28.—T0-day there has been a fair demand for cotton, 3500 bags have been disposed of. The trade linvr been the chief buy ers, but 500 American and 100 Bengal have been taken for export. The common qualities of A merican are still offered freely, but prices are without alteration. Monday, March* o.—-To-day there has been an active demand tor cotton, au.l 5000 bags, chiefly Ameiican, and all to the trade, with the excep tion ol 300 bales for export, have in en disposed of. The market is well supplied and the com mon and middling qualities of American have been tolerably saleable at last week's prices. gy THK EAKTKKir MAIL. Correspondence oj the Pilot. NEW YORK, April 27th, 1840. The papers of to-day will give you full ac counts of the news from England, by the packet ship U. States, arrived yesterday in 25 days from Liverpool. The bill which has been.pending in our legis lature, making further appropriations for the construction of the public works in this State, has finally passed both branches, aid wants but the signature of the Governor, to become a law. Every effort of the administration party has been used to defeat the passage of this bill, but the friends of the interests of the State have triumph ed over the destructives. The bill grants lur ther appropriations for the Gettessee valley and Black River Canal, and provides for the com pletion of the enlarged Erie-Canal to Utica, and through the cities and large villages west of Uti oa; it also suspends the work on the long levels between Syracuse and Utica, and between Roch ester and Lockpert, until the financial conditio! of lift State will authorize an entire completion of the whole line. The batik note redemption bill, as is called, has also passed both branches of the Legislature. This bill requires all the banks in the State to redeem their notes either in New York or Al bany, atone half of one per cent discount. There is a great scarcity of general news, the sole absorbing topic, with which every mind is filled, and every heart is throbbing, is the elec tion in Virginia. The collector on Saturday hd received a letter from the South, containing glowing accomuts of the success of the Federal ists, but lo! Sunday come- with its bright face and cheering smiles, and as the harbinger of peace and joy and hope to the christian; so it was the messenger of glad, tidings to the politi cian and lover of freedom.
