N. M. Rothschild & Son. Monument at Dade's Battle Ground.-' Tho proceedings of a number of the officers of the army in r lorida, which will be iound in this day's paper, announce to us their de termination to erect a momumcnt on the fatal spot where Dado and his companions met their untimely end. If tho Seminolo war had been happily terminated wiih the tirst campaign, so that public attention might have been withdrawn from the exciting narration of battles and skirmishes, we feel assured that this sacred duty would not have devolved upon the sur viving officers of thoso regiments whose members were thus suddenly cut off. If Congress had failed to authorise tho erec tion of a monument over their remains, public sympathy and admiration would havo supplied the deficiency. 1 he prompt move ment of tho officers themselves, has antici paled such a step, which sooner or later would havo been adopted by tho people. It is perhaps as well that officers havo taken the lead.

Army and Navy Chronicle. The way of the Sheep. Stealer is hard. A young thief named J. Alverson, died in our counjy jail yesterday morning a victim of hi3 own evil propensities. It is supposed that Alverson had stolen from dif. ferent farmers in this county, no loss than ono hundred sheep since the hrst of r euru ary. On Sunday night he visited a pasture in Hartwich, in which were a flock of about ono hundred and twenty sheep, owned b Mr. Philip Lawson. During the last wee a brother of Mr. Lawson had arrived at hi3 house on a visit and had with him a largo bull-dog, which had been well trained by him, and which he valued very highly. It appears that tho dog must havo been at tractcd to tho sheep pasture during the night, which is about half a mile distant from Mr. L. s dwelling, by tho disturbance made by tho thief. In the morning the dog being absent, Mr. Lawson felt somewhat anxious: and it was 0 o clock beforo tho faithful animal was discovered. Ho was found by a lad in Mr. L.'s employ, lying be- side tho inscnsiblo body of Alverson, and besido him also lay a fine fat weather, with his legs tied. Alverson, was so badly bit ten in his struggles with tho dog, that ho died of his wounds soon after being given into custody. The dog had bitten through his wrist, and through ono of his hands: and ho had nsevcro bite on the back of the neck, which it is supposed caused liis death. Otsego Observer. Taking Lessons. Tho Salem Land mark states that a student from ono of tho Southern States, in tho Theological Semi nary at Andover, had purchased some wood and was exceedingly emoarrassed to obtain some one to saw it for him. Ho went to professor Stewart to inquire what ho should ob in so unfortunate a predicament. The learned Professor replied that ho was in want of a job himself, and he would saw it for him. This reminds us of an anecdoto related of tho late celebrated "self made" merchant of this city, Wm. Gray, Esq. more famili. arly known as 'Billy Gray." Ho was walking ia tho market when ho met a young lawyer, who had just set up a shaving shop inquiring ior a Doy 10 carry Home a picco of meat he had purchased. Hilly offered to do the service for him, which was kind ly accepted by tho young lawyer. On or riving at tho domicil of tho litter, he ask ed Mr. Gray, what was his charge for the service. Mr. G. replied that he left it en. tircly to his generosity whereupon the lawyer gave him a " York shilling." Af ter thanking hii benefactor, Mr. G. remark ed that when he wanted another small job performed, ho need only inquire for Billy Gray, who would immediately come. . Tho lawyer was thunderstruck ! He was hard, ly worth tho clothes on his back, while the man who performed thi3 menial servicofor him, was well known to bo worth a million of dollars ! Thereafter tho man carried home his own Marketing. Boston Times. The Lawyer and Quaker. A Quaker was called into court to give his testimony in a case at law.

Waite, arrived on Saturday from Liverpool, and tho Chahlemagne, Capt. Richards, yesterday from Havre. We havo received by these vessels accounts from London to the 2d, and Liverpool to tho 3d ultimo, and from Paris and Havro to the 3 1st of the preced ing month. The increased rato of interest demanded by the Bank of England appears to havo excited considerable attention, and strange indeed are the speculations made in Lon. don on tho causes of this occurrence. It docs not appear to havo occurred to any one, that tho high price which circumstan- ces here justify us m paying for tho use of money, has also had an euect on tho price in England and yet this is evidently the principal, if no tho only cause ; but thus it always will be, when poople attempt to re. gulato by fixed rules, the value of any ar. tide of general application. Tho largest fire that there has been in London for thirty years, broke out on the 30th of August on tho Southwark side of London Bridge, the loss estimated at 400, 000 sterling. The French Cabinot is not reorganized, and tho Parisian Journals aro full of dis cussions on tho subject. Tho cause of the dissolution of the last, is admitted to be the question of French intervention in tho af fairs of Spain. The indirect assistanco of England af forded to the constitutional causo in that country docs not appear to havo been pro ductivo of much good and it i3 probable tho whole of tho British legion has erenow returned. Wo give the latest accounts from Madrid. All Spain except tho basquo Provinces and Navarre appear to have pro claimed tho Constitution of 1812. Cour. and Enq. FRANCE. London, Sept. 2, 1833. Wo havo re. ceived the Paris papers of Wednesday, and accounts Irom Madrid of tho date of tho 23d ult. From tho contents of the former it docs not appear that any Ministerial appointment has yet been made by tho King of tho French. M. Duchatel, M. Guizot, M. Mole, and M. do Montalivet, havo all had interviews with his Majesty, but it seems to bo a matter of very great difficulty to make arrangement which shall include all the abovo mentioned individuals in one Cabinet. As for M. Thiers it is said, that ho intends to quit Franco for Germany, or for Italy, unless Louis Phillipo speedily decides to ro- m Mixii iitui io puwer. Tiio Garde National of Marseilles of tho 20th ult. contains tho following : " Our news from Tangiers is of tho 11th inst. iM. do la Jlue has succeeded m his mission to tho Emperor of Morocco, and has obtain ed from him all tho compensation and guarantees that can bo expected. M. de la Kuc hopes that tho best results will ac cruo to tho relations of the two countries from his interview with the Emperor.

M. do Ia Rue was expected at languera on tho 15th or lutli, to embark on board tho Suflrcn. SPAIN. The Sentinel des Pvrenes of the 2rtth ult., gives the following.

The battalion whir.li broke tho windows of tho French Consul at Vaicnica, has been confined to its bar racks for two davs.'.' j A letter to tho 20th ult. from Bayonne, says "Hi. do lorene has, it is said.arnv. ed at Santander, whence ho will probably proceed to England or France, and wait till tho present storm has blown owr. Tl command of tho army had devolved upon ispanero, dui mo position ot the Uencral, who has defeated Gomez five or six times within tho last fortnight, if his bulletins toll truth, is at present unknown. It is. how. ever, certain that tho Carlists aro routed." Tho Bayonno papers state that General Cordova arrived at St. Jean Pied.d 1W on tho 2Cth ulf. from Spain. Along tho wholo course of his route ho was exposed to considerable personal danger, owing to tho ill feeling of the population towards him. Later accounts tnenUon his arrival at Ba yonno, whero Castanos, . Amarillas, and (Ia2on. members of tho Rerrcncv estjih. lishod by Ferdinand, aro also expected. Tho engagement in which General Soria "M imyiy conccrncu, ana wnicn was an nounced by tho Monitftnr to hftvfl Inrmlnn. cd disastrously for tho Carlists, is described in somo of the letters from Bayonne as hav ing boon a comploto triumph to them. It is of course impossible to decido which story is correct uotilmorc detailed accounts shnll bo received. According to intelligence from Barcc. lona, General Mini has resigned his com ma ad in Cutalor.ia on account of ill health. The accounts from Madrid state that no serious disturbance has occurred there since tho 18th ult. but they describe tho inhabi. tants of that city as being in a state of groat alarm. Letters and papers from Madrid to tho 22d ult. have been received. By a royal decree, dated the 21st, tho Queen-Regent has restored to their respective appoint, ments tho seventeen cx-deputies and other persons removed by Isturia, in consequence of their adherence to the Mendixabel Ad ministration. A second royal decrco an. nounces tho re-appointment of Gen. Rodil to be commander-in-chief of the army of tho north ; General San Miguel, who first proclaimed the constitution of 1812 at Sara, gossa, to tho chief command of tho army of tho centre, and to remain captain-general of Arragon; tho Marquis of Monsalud, captain-gcneral of Estremadura ; Don An. tonia Qui-Marcilla, military governor of Bodajos. 1 hus the appointment of General Saarsfield to the chief command of the army of operations is cancelled almost as soon as it is signed. Somo disturbances took place at Madrid on the night of tho 18th, in consequence of a quarrel between the National Guards, the ciuzens, and a portion of Quesada's troops, but happily it was quelled without tho effusion of much blood. Tho constitution of 1812 has been pro claimed throughout the wholo of the King dom of Arragon. On tho 16th it, was solemnly proclaimed and sworn to in Bar celona, by command of General Mina. Calatrava had appointed the 21st for com pleting his Ministry. It is supposed that Mendizabel would decline accepting office beforo the meeting of the Cortes, when he i3 to defend himself against tie charges pre ferred against him by Isturie. Of Isturiz and his colleagues nothing positive is known, but that they keep themselves concealed. Since their arrival in Madrid, tho Queen Regent has appeared well reconciled with tho new state of things. Tho Council of Ministers has decided that tho Cortes shall bo convoked for October 24, and that tho proclamation of the constitution of 1812 having been effectually annulled the late elections of new deputies are to be chosen, according to tho system of tho constitution of 1812, but tho number for the Peninsula and tho adjoining islands is to bo increased to 208. A letter from Bayonne, dated the 23d ult. states that an engagement took place at Ladosa on tho 18th, between the ConsUtu tionalists under Irribarra, and tho Carlists under General Ituralda. It lasted for somo hours, and terminated in the total rout of the Carlists, who suffered considerably in killed and wounded, and lost 000 prisoners, of whom 37 were officers. Tho constitution has been proclaimed at rampclona, Bilboa, and several other places, with great rejoicings. Another letter of tho samo date, evident ly written by a partisan of Don Carlos, has tne following: "Gen. Gomez has divided his army inio throa corps ; the fir3t, under tho command ot tho Marquw do Bjbcda, and composed or 5,000 mnn, is in tint oc cupation of Mondonedo, in Galicia, and tho surrounding country ; the second, under Brigadier Arroyo, which n 0,400 strong, is in I ho Asturias ; and tho third, tho effective force of which ia 7,000 infantry and COO cavalry, commanded by General Gomez in person, threatens the town of Leon and its environs. All the three divisions are rats ing recruits in tho country. It is announced that tho Carlist Brigadier Don Castor An. dechaga has completely defeated the Chris tino Chief, Don K Iriarte, in die Incartac iones, and forced him to retire in disorder to Santander." A Ccntennarian. Moses Brown of Pro videnco is 99 years old, and is in the enjoy, ment of good health. A letter written by him a fow days ago, exhibits a stylo of pen manship very far removed from tho care less scrawl of ordinary old men. The great secret of all the health of the body and mind, so fully enjoyed by this venerable man can bo traced to his constant temper ance, continual exercise of thought, and a bovc all, to conscience void of offence.

The brig Gamboia, Ccpt Fbench, from Buenos Ayrcs, has brought us a file of The British Packet, published there to the 13th August. . We learn from these that a seri ous insurrection in the Republic of Ureguay had taken place headed by the late Pres. idont, of which the following are somo of the particulars. ' Accounts were received from Montevie do, by tho Ross, to 27th inst. The capital was in much confusion. A militia corps had been formed there, and the Govern, ment was taking every measure of precau tion. General Ignacio Orbo had been ap-' pointed Commandant General of the coun. ty districts. Tho President of tho Repub he, Don Manuel Oribe, had issued a procla. ma, stating that rebellion had raised its head in the bosom of the Republic. Tho lead ers of tho sedition knowing well that they would not find support amongst the natives, had had recourse to foreigners ; and that tho Government have the satisfaction to state that thoso in arms against the legal au thority are chiefly foreign emigrant officers, who, abusing the hospitality afforded them, wero endeavoring to involve tho country in anarchy; but that tho rebellion would be soon suppresssd. A decree from Montevideo, 23d inst., calls upon all military officers of tho Re public, absent on leave or otherwise, to return again to tho service. A despatch from Colonel Manuel Brit03, to tho Government at Montevideo, states that on tho 17lh inst., Gen. r ructuoso Ri vera presented himself w ith 100 men about two leagues Irom tho town ot ban b ructuo so, and opened a correspondence with him (Col. Britos,) endeavoring to persuade him to join in tho rebellion, which he indignant ly refused, and attacked Rivera, wlro in. stantly fled and was pursued until sun-set, leaving bcliind him an officer and six sol diers who were made prisoners, a number of saddled horses &c. &c. On the 18th Gen Rivera passed tho Sauce with only 40 men, somo of them wounded : tho rest had dispersed during the night. Colonel Brito3 says that he has under his command 300 well disposed men, and that ho is to march towards l'uisandu, to protect that town and pursue tho anarchists. Further accounts say that insurrectiona ry movements had broken out in other parts of tho Republic, headed by partizans of Rivera. 1 ho uaceta Mercantil of Buenos Ayrcs contains sundry official reports of successful attacks made on the Indians who had harrassed some of the frontier settle ments, and adds "that the government of Bueno3 Ayres, m conjunction with thoso of Santa Fe, Cordova, and tho other Irontier provinces, has combined a series of mihta ry operations, which had gono fur to anni hilate tho Indians, who had escaped the tri umphant campaigns of tho expeditionary army made to tha southward in tho years 1833 and 34; and tho equally glorious ono of General Ivsianislao Lopez, gover nor of Santa Fe. That tho Indians, in oth er times eo powerful and who by their fe rocious incursions threatened to destroy ev cry vestige of civilization wero nearly e radicated ; moro than twenty thousand of these warlike savages having fallen beneath the swords of tho bravo federal troops, who under tho same patriotic direction were continuing tho work of exterminating a power once so colossal and terrible. That tho insignificant groups of Indians now wandering about, cannot long escape tho constant and well combined pursuit to which they aro exposed, and witli their destruc tion tho scourge to which tho Argentine people have been subjected from tho rcmo. test period of tho conquest will disappear for ever. That at tho present moment these errant Indians arc expatiating tho crimes and atrocities which in other days filled the inhabitants of this country with consternation; and that tho enterprise which must ever confer honor upon tho pa. ges of Argentine History, and which the friends of civilization in all countries will applaud, will soon bo completed." Cour. 4 Enq. - v. BRAZIL. r Rio Janeiro papers of the 14th August have been received by us, brought by tho bark Eunomcs, Capt. Endicott, from that place. They contain intelligence of tho restoration of tranquility in the city and provinco of Para, and of the re-establish, ment of the authority of the imperial gov. ernment of Brazil. On the 11th April, the new President as sumed the reins of government at Tautoca, an island in tho nvcr A" zon. On the 18th he caused some vessel u 'sr tho com mand of Captain Maryatt, to reconnoiture tho island of Carnapijo, whero tho rebels had constructed a small fortress which was destroyed. From thence ho proceeded with all his squadron to tho island of Uara. pcranga, enrrying with him his prisoners, and establishing there a military station. Expeditions wero then sent to different points in possession of tho rebels, from all of which they were consecutively driven, and afterwards notwithstanding considerable resistance, the Brazilian squadron succeed ed in blockading tho town of Para. On the 12th May indications were perceived from the vessels of an intention on the part of tho rebels to abandon the place, ana at 3 o'clock on tho afternoon of tho following day they left tho port in 13 small armed vessels which wero pursued by the light, ships belonging to tho squadron and some destroyed. Oh the same day the President landed at Para with 400 men, and on the day following he disembarked all his for ces, and estrblishcd himself in full posses. I ion of tho capital. Many of the rebels dispersed, and the rest fled to the Up. per Amazons, hotly pursued by the Brazil, lans. . . 1 ' .

O" We find, on farther investigation, that we were altogether correct in our opinion of tho viows of the dissenters from the proposition of congress, on tho admission question, given in our last. It remains, with them, after all the procrastination and anxiety of a whole year, and after tha absolute rejection of the only condition ofljrcd at the end of a long session of congress, but tho easiest thing in nature to hush all per. plexities to a quiotus, at a einglo step, and bring1 upon Michigan at once, cro the chill frosts of winter come, tho halcyon and qubt days of a smiling sister in tho Union.
