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public attention might have been withdrawn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.
It is soothing to the soldier, when he goes

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

The French Cabinot is not reorganized,

Tho Bayonno papers state that General
Cordova arrived at St. Jean Pied.d 1W
on tho 2Cth ulf. from Spain. Along tho

According to intelligence from Barcc.

The accounts from Madrid state that no
serious disturbance has occurred there since
tho 18th ult. but they describe tho inhabi.

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

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

environs. All the three divisions are rats

that tho Carlist Brigadier Don Castor An.

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.
