GI,ASS W A R E Real Cstate. THE MINNESOTIAN. Thackeray, Parke Godwin, of the X. V. Evening Post, gives the following description of lliis famous author aud lecturer, who i, now in New York, as he saw and heard him upon a certain occa sion : -lit* was a tall, brawny man, with a full face, clumsy, abrupt manner, carelessly dressed, his head turning greyish, and with a guiet, saga cious and rather good-humored face. I should have said, without knowing him, that he was a comfortable English gentleman and scholar, and not a cynical philosopher. His voice was agreeable and distinct, hut not loud, while there (tas nothing ot the orator in his manner.

The estimate he placed on the literary abili ties of Steele was a just one, while his descrip tions of his social qualities, and of his relations to the sedate ami pure-minded Addison, rel ished of the finest humor.

On the If,th of November, the steamer Cres cent City again visited Havana, with Purser Smith on board. Tho mails ami passengers were landed, but Smith was not permitted to go on shore. On the eve of sailing. Captain Havenport. U. S. N\. who had taken the place of Captain Porter. T. S. X., received a note from Messrs. Drake >V Co., consignees of the steamer, enclosing a copy of one to them from Martin Galiana. the political Secretary of the Captain General, notifying them that the order forbidding the entry of the Crescent City into the port ot Havana, should that American steamer have Mr. Smith on hoard, will be en forced in future. Capt. Davenport wrote in re ply to the consignees that Mr. Smith would re turn in the ship, and the consequences, whatev er they may be, the Spanish authorities will be responsible for. Tims stand the warnings and the threats.— The Crescent City was injured on the trip so that the ( herokec had to take her place the last trip from New York. The ( herokee sailed for Havana on the 27th. but without the United States Mails, which were withdrawn by order of the Government by Capt. Baxter. Purser Smith was on board. The letter of President Fillmore and the comments of the Republic on the subject will be found below : IV.ISIILVGTOX, Nov. 27. Thu Intelligencer of iliis morning contains a letter from ITo-itli nf Fillmore to Hugh Mux well, Collector of Ihe Fort of New York, in an swer to a letter from Mr. Maxwell inquiring w hether Mr. George I.aw. the agent of the l r S Mail SD amer. was right in persisting in the sailing of said vessel to Havana—the Rending out of Mr. Smith. Ac. The following is the r<> ply of tlie President: “I do not admit tlie right of Mr. Law, or any other citizen, to threaten war on liis ow n ac count, for (lie purpose of seeking redress for real or imaginary injuries, and then to tall on the Government, whether it approves or disap proves of such conduct, and assumes its appro bation, unless the act is forbidden. “The Constitution of the United States has vested ini ongross alone the power of declaring war, and neither tin* Executive branch of the Government nor Mr. Law can usurp the power by commencing w ar without its authority ; and if lie attempt* it. it will he iny duty, a* it is my determination, to exert all tin* power conferred on tho Executive Government by the Constitu tion and laws to prevent it. lam resolved, at every hazard, to maintain our rights, in this controversy against Spain ; aud I am equullv resolved that no act of our own citizens shall be permitted to place this Government in the wrifng. ."-Mr. Law has an undoubted right to pursue his law ful business : but when the question is raised between this Government and a foreign power, as to whether the business he pursues is law ful <>r pursued in a law ful manner, the deci sion of that question belongs to the two Gov ernments, and not to him. If the object be to assert his right to enter the port of Havana w ith such persons as he chooses to select, in de fiance of the law and Government of Spain, he lias certainly done enough to present that ques tion for tlie decision of the Governments of the 1 nited States and Spain, ami the negotiation has already commenced, and our rights, as I understand, have been asserted, and. as I said before, will be maintained : but the acts of this Government cannot be controlled by the inter ference of any individual : and it is certain, if Mr. Law repeats these attempts for the purpose of settling this controversy, and in so doing vi olates tin* laws of a foreign nation within its own jurisdiction, anil thirdly loses or forfeits his vessel, he can expect no indemnity for such an act of folly from this Government. “IV e regulate the terms and conditions upon w hich all foreign vessels enter our ports ami fix the penalties for violating our laws, and the right to do so we shall never suffer to be ques tioned by foreigners, and we do not question theirs to do the same thing. NVe must wait the result of the negotiations between the two Gov ernments. “This is a question not to be settled by him and Cuba, nor between the United States and Cuba, but between the United States anil Spain, which alone is responsible for the conduct of the Government of Cuba. “I write in some baste. a« the mail is about closing, but you are at liberty to make known the contents of this letter to Mr. Law. and in form him that as a good citizen. 1 presume he will not attempt any violation of our neutrality laws by attacking Cuba. MILLARD FILLMORE.’’ The Republic, commenting upon this letter, says that Mr. Law. on lieing apprised of the contents of this letter, replied that his intention in relation to making war on Cuba, was a mis understanding. It also announces that Daven port has been removed—that no other officer of the navy will Ik* permitted to enter the service of the Company so long as the managers adhere to the present practices, converting visits of vessels into sources of annoyance to Spanish authorities. With a view to preventing a rep etition of injuries which the failure to deliver Havana maiU will inflict on mercantile classes. the P. M. General has directed that mails shall not again be despatched in the Crescent City or any other Company steamer, which may have Purser Smith on board, tint will be sent by ihe steamer Isabella. Therefore, if Law chooses to retain Purser Smith, the steamer will be strip ped of her official character and patronage.— Government is resolved to fulfil the obligations which it owes to citizens of the United States and Spain to the extent of its powers, to cruru every attempt to compromise the peace exist ing between the two countries, whether bv a Lopez expedition, or disguised under pretence of lawful business, us in the case of the Crescent Citv. From the Pittsburgh Gazette. Value ot Railroads to Farmers. Some farmers have u strange and most un reasonable prejudice against Railroads, where as there is no class of the community more lienefitted by them. Tlie cereal products of a farm at a considerable distance from a market are almost valueless, when ordinary roads have to be depended upon, and the value of the land is therefore comparatively small; but let a railroad be constructed near by, and it brings the farmer to his market, enhances the price of his productions, and increases the value of his land. A late number of the American Railroad Journal has illustrated this by a table showing the value of a ton of w heat and corn at given points from from market, as affected by the cost of Railroad transportation, which’ will convince any intelligent farmer of the vast lienefils to him of Railroad improvements. I It is well known, says the Railroad Journal, that upon the ordinary highways the economi cal limit to transportation is confined within a comparatively few miles, depending of course upon the kind of freight and character of tie roads. Upon the average ot such ways, cost of transportation is not far from fifteen cents per mile, which may be considered as a sufficiently correct estimate for an average of the country. Estimating at the same time the value of wheat at SI fit) per bushel, and corn at 7."> cents, and that fill bushels of each are equal to a ton, the value of the former would he equal to its cost of transportation for 330 miles, and the latter 105 miles. At these respective distances from market, neither of the above articles would have any commercial value, w ith only a com mon earth road as an avenue to market. Rut we find that wo can move property upon Railroads at the rate of 1.. j cents per ton per mile, or for one-teuth tlie cost upon tho ordina ry road. These works therefore extend the economic limit or the cost of transportation of the above articles to 3,300, and 1,0.50 miles res pectively. At the limit of the economical movement of these articles upon tlie common highway, by the use of Railroads, wheat would be worth 5M4 .50. and corn $22 27. which sum respectively would represent the actual increase of value created by the interposition of such a work. The following table will show tho amount saved per ton by transportation by Railroad, over tin* ordinary highways of the country.

The same calculation may of course be applied with equal force to any kind aud species of property. The following story lias been well told before, but it is good enough to tell again : It is well known that Mr. Webster was a keen sportsman. When he went out gunning it was his frequent practice to wander alone in search of birds to a considerable distance from home, anil to places where he was quite unknown.— On one of these occasions, as he was shooting on a piece of ground covered with swamps, ami with many creeks ruening through it. two dan dy sportsmen thus accosted him : “Here, old chap, we can't get over this creek ; if you'll carry us over on your back, we'll give you a quarter apiece.” “Done,” said tbe person thus accosted : and forthwith he carried them across, one after the other. “There's your money,” said one of them ; “ you seem like a smart old feller, w hat's your name ?” “Daniel Webster,” was tbe reply. The youths looked at him, saw such was the case, and apologized. “Never mind," remarked Daniel, “you're not the first fools I've got out of difficulty, hut I'll keep your quarters as a curiosity.” And it is said they form a portion of tho private cabinet of curiosities at Marshfield. The extent of Parson Drown low's influence in Knoxville, Tenn.. may Ik* inferred from the fact that his ticket—the Webster ticket—re ceived precisely one vote. It cannot be hard to say who gave it.

N'..v. 4, was fixed by the French monarch for tlie assembling of the’Senate, whose proceedings, ratified by a popular vote, which in its turn will be canvassed by the Legislative Body, will convert the quondam Republic into a legitimate Empire and its master into the an nointed Cesar of that peculiar people whose boast is to lead civilization and thought of the world. It is usually supposed that the procla mation of this change in names and titles will take either on the 2d of December, the anniversary of the day when the National As -1 stmbly was overthrown, or on the 10th of that month, the anniversary of Napoleon’s first elec tion to ihe Presidency. But our well informed London Correspondent states that (he ceremo iiv w ill be postponed almost till New Year. This is well. A day unique iu history cun afford to scorn all association with other epochs. Let it I stand by itself. i Tbe parade of a journey through tbe South ; ern Provinces, and a reception at Paris prece ding this last leap of Napoleonic ambition, has certainly revealed a deluge of fiunkeyism lit to adorn that glorious period of French history when gentlemen, whose pedigree dated long I«*tore Charlemagne, could write fo solicit for their young and lovely daughters the honor of a place in the seraglio of a crowned aud conse crated debauchee; but it lias also had its indica tions of nunly indignation and honest popular j imhtlcrence and dislike. The pageant, whose I enthusiasm rolled through the pompous paru i graphs of th.* official journals, was often tint the forced creation of the Police; the groups of white robed maidens that at city gates, w ith flowers and singing, welcomed this patent savior of order , and society, were compelled to that service as : conscripts are driven into tlie army, and the ; banners and decorations flaunting with hvpocri tical expressions of joy and gratitude, were in many though not in all eases, but the tribute of Tear extorted by the omnipotent commissaries of the Government. For the expenses of the Paris show, we learn that a tax was imposed even on poor huckster women in the markets, who sadly paid their twenty or forty cents under pain of being expelled from their stalls! A signiticant augury for the permanence of the new empire is the fact that it is thus based ou'a system of universal intimidation and terror. Such compression must in time have its counter spring. The power which dares not face public opinion must look some day fo perish by its ex ’ plosion. Hypocrisy, corruption and violence : may endure for a time, but they bear on their front the date of their own demise. Reared from such beginings. with no purpose and no in spiration but that of personal ambition and base and dishonest selfishness, w ith no glory but tlie exhalations from a grave that entombs the direst disasters and the greatest downfall of modern times, where is the fresh made Emperor to lay for his throne and his dynasty a foundation sol id enough to resist even for u day, the rushing currents of popular necessity, the withering blast of popular scorn ? There is one way in which he may do this, one way in which lie may redeem his name from the awful clouds of shame and of crime that threaten to bury it in infamy eternal. Let him use the power of which In* has swindled France for France's benefit. Let him reduee the army and take off the mountain of taxation thnt depresses the masses into slavish poverty. Let him uliol- I isli the unnatural legislation which governs the ■ inheritance and transfer of land. Let him re form the mortgage system and obliterate the thousand monopolies, great and little, like that | of banking for instance, which fetter the indus : try and hinder the natural development of the country. In a word, let hin emancipate the internal trade and make the beginningof a nat ural system of government, and he may yet lie bailed a benefactor of bis country, and establish his successors as the holders of its Executive pow< r for long years to come. Rut there is not the slightest reason to antici pate from him unykind of measures such as these. His object hereafter, as it lias been hitherto, will be himself and his family as a part of him self. Four years’incessant intrigue and agita tion. general massacres and faeticious ovations have made him Emperor. A pitiful fool! after so long pursuing th** phantom of a low and mean son led ambition, it is impossible that he should now devote himself to noble ends. His next delusion will be the settling ofliis dynasty and eternizing of his title and his race. In that work lie will perish nsliis uncle and Louis Phil ippe perished before him. Such men can never learn the lesson of true greatness. Wo presume tiic majority for the Empire will bo greater even than either of those which the French people have already recorded in favor of the same individual. There is no good rea son to vote against him in defiance of official hos tility and persecution. The best that the French democrats can w isely do in the case* would seem to In* to obstaiu from voting at all, aud let the act Ik* done without them. The change is, after all, of Little; consequence. The laws will lie no severer, nor tlie interference of the authorities in private affairs more intolerable, nor personal liberty subjected to any new curtailments; for, indeed, these tilings cannot tic made worse than they are. Napoleon will be addressed as‘*Sire” and “Your Majesty" instead of “l’rincc” and “Monseignenr his Court will lie more splen did,and tlie Paris shop-keeper better patronized; there will he a new crop of princes and other nobility: but that will be all. It is a mere play, this putting on of titles and of gew-gaws; the reality it stands for has existed long,—nay, in France, under one form or another, it has never ccascil to exist. Let us hope that it may now be effectually and definitely acted out and done for. Before the advent of this man, there was one name which yet w ore a prestige and exercised a great influence in France. The Bourbons of both younger and elder branches, hail destroyed themselves, hut the name ofNAfotAiox still sway ed the imagination of tbe people. And it did this because it represented a great man. the hero of a mighty career. It had become a politcal Hiipcrsition. The modern Napoleon,—a small man, the hero of a career mean even in itscrimes and its adventures, —is destroying it. That ser vice he will certainly render to his country. At the same time he is a terror to the legitimate monarch* of the continent. In their eyes he is but a democratic upstart and bodes them ill. In shaking aud overturning their power he may, perhaps, also render a service. .... A striking illustration of historic justice is seen in the elevation of the new Emperor. Na poleon divorced Josephine that lie might have a son of his own to wear his crown after him. That divorce was bis ruin, and his child sleeps in an Austrian grave. And now this grandson of Josephine, hut liastard Bonaparte—in whose veins there runs notoriously no drop of Bona irortc blood —sits upon the throne from which she was repudiated. Thus does Time pour con tempt upon the name and the fame of the Con queror. and bitterly aveuge the wrongs of the Woman. It is a fact to which those who specu late on the symliolic meaning of events may easily attach a universal signiliernce. A female, in male attire, attempted to vote in New York at the Presidential election. Her smooth face suggested a glaace -beneath her hat, when unfortunately the TcitiiMay of the ringlets rebutted that the trowsers. The receipt* at Australian Gold in England were very large.
