The following is an extract from a work, entitled "Three Tears in New Mexico and anion j lhe Cama riches and other Italians West of the Mississippi? 'by Thomas James, of Illinois. A 'company of eleven men, with the author, in 1S21 were on the route to Santa Fe, and on a small branch of Salt river, one ol the most westerly tributaries of the Arkansas, had fallen in Avith near two thousand Camanche warriors. The Americans were posted at the foot of a mound, with the Camanche village or en campment between them and the river. . . . . , - .1 They had been detained as prisoners inree days, after being robbed of most of their "oods, when the following incidents occur red: ' ' ' Dtnin the ninht we were stoned by a party of boys from the mound in our rear. Thev were at lenrrth disioazea Dy me ex ertions of a chief, and we lett to our repose. But of.rest there was none to us, though this was the third night which had been sleepless to me and most of the men. Un: certain of our fate and exhausted vith fa tigue, watching and anxiety, we waited the issue of events. The sun "rose to my mind with a gloomy aspect, and " every thing seemed to portend an evil fate to our little band. Six of my horses had been taken in thft nirrht. and I ordered my men out to find and brim? them back: The friendly chief now came to me with crreat concern and deiection in his countenance, and begged of me not to .leave ray station or auow me men to o out. Keep toirether," said lie, "or you will all be killed. '-The- men that go out will; be murdered. Don't try to get back your hordes.' I saw thai the whole army were preparing to decamp and pulling down their lodges. Some time after sunrise, I per 1 n hont fiftv of the chiefs and older In dians going into the mound above us, in our rear, followed by a multitude ol young warriors arid boys. An old man turned and drove them back; the two! friendly chiefs did not go up. Arrived at the top, this company formed a circle, sat down and smoked. Then one of their number com menced what seemed to us, from his ges tures, to be a violent harangue, designed to inflame their passions. A told my company that this council would decide our fate. Thev asked how I knew this. If they come down, .said I, friendly, we shall have no thing to fear; but if sulky, and out ot humor, we have nothing to hope. Put your guns in good order and be prepared for the worst. We must sell, our lives asdeany as possiuie. In this sentimenf they, all agreed with me, and we prepared to meet our, fate, whatever it should be, like men. : During this time, the lodgas, with the women and children, were fast disappearing, and the men as sembling before us on horseback and foot, armed with guns, bows and lances.'- The council on thg hill, after an hour's consul tation, dascended, and we soon learned that our deaths Were determined upon. Those Tmh'nn Uvho before' were sociable, .were now distant and sulky.: AVhen spoken to by any of us they made no answer. ti. frisndlv. 'chief, and Bis Star, who had taken no part in the council, now came and shook hands, and bade .us farewell. 1 hftsniirrKt. them to', stay with us; -shaking their heiuU sorrowfully, they went away. V' "PROTECTION" TO ALL HOLLY SPRINGS, The press in front now greatl v increase. I Near two thousand warriors stood above and around us,, with the evident intention of making an attack, and appeared, to be waiting the signal for the onslaught. We stood in a circle with our backs to the goods and f addles heaped up above all our headl and with our rilles raised to our breasts, and our fingers on the triggers. We were also armed with knives and tomahawks. Old Jimmy Wilson seized an .axe, having no gun, and swore he would hew his way as far as he could. Thns we stood," eleven against two thousand, wilh death staring us in the face. All seemed unwilling to com mence the bloody work. The suspense was awful. I stood between John Mc- Knight and my brother, and noticed their countenances. Mclvmght s iacJ Was wnite and his chin and lips were. quivering. My brother, as brave a man as- ever lived, look ed despcrae and determined. Not a man but seemed determined to die in arms and fighting, and none, were overcome by fear. , "Thus we stood near half an hour in deathly silence; at length the White Bear warrior, a chief dressed in a whole bear skin with the claws hanging over his hands, rode swiftly towards us, through the crowd, wilh his lance in his hand, as if to annihi late us at once; but- seeing the dangerous position he was in, he stopped short, about live paces from us, and glared upon me with the most deadly malignity. Finding that he could not reach me with his lance, he took out the pistol,, examined the priming, tossed out the powder from ' the pan, re primed, and again" fixed his devilish eyes upon me. But he saw that I could fire first, and kept his pistol down'. Here McKnight broke the dreadful silence, saying, "let us commence, James; you will be the first man killed; this suspense is worse than death. The blaek chief is my mark." I said no, McKnight, let us forbear, as long as they do; for us to begin, is folly in the extreme; but as soon as a gun is lired we must fire, ru.li in and sell our lives as dearly as possi ble. Here Kisher walked out with his gun over his head, gave it up, and passed into the crowd unmolested. In a minute after wards, we heard the cry from a distance, approaching nearer and nearer, of Tabba hon, Tabbahon. . This 1 suppose was on ac count of Kisher's surrender. The cry in creased and spread throughout the crowd. Looking towards the South-West, whence the cry arose, while the White Bear's at tention was withdrawn. I saw six horse men riding : at full speed, and as they came nearer, we heard the words in Spanish, save them ! save them ! In a moment a Spanish olficer rushed into our arms, exclaiming, thank God we are in time; are you all safe and unhurt? He said that he had heard of our danger by accident, that morning, and had ridden twenty miles to save us. AH the circumstances of our rescue, we learned the next day. With joyous and thankful hearts for our escape from a death, that five minutes before, seemed inevitable, we pre pared to depart with our preservers. I had bidden farewell, as I thought forever, to wife,. child, home and all its endearments, and the thoughts of them were now . over powering to me. ' The Spaniards asked the Indians why they were going to kill us.- They answered, that the Spanish Governor at Santa Fe had commanded them not. to let any Americans pass, but that we were determined to go in spite of them, so that to stop us and keep their promise to the Spanish Governor, they thought they were compelled to take our lives.' The Spaniards told them that this was under the the Gov ernment of Spain, but that they were now independent and free, and brothers to the Americans. . This vas the first news I had heard of the Mexican revolution. The Camanches alFwent down the river, offer ing no further violence to us, and we start ed for the Spanish camp the same day. ' The London ; News is severe upon the British Premier. " It .will be remembered that this' high tory came into power on a sort of free-trade panic; his friends made the protectionists believe that the whigs were ruining their interests, and that a res toration of the tories was necessary to - sus tain theni." Hence the News says of Peel -"The advocates of protection made him their chief, and he is striking the deepest blows ever a minister struck, at the verv roots of the protective system. They called him in to do , their will, and he has done nearly, the reverse.", -4 ,-'.- " It is a little strange that while the minis ter himse lf repudiates the theory of protec tion vhile the minister's former protection friends denounce him because he ha3 proved false to them and "while the free-traders are congratulating themselves that he has dared to do what he lias done, and accept ing his labors as a partial triumph" of their principles it is strange; we say, that the whigs here view things sc upside down as to see in the late alterations in the British tariff only a trtngthening of th protective system! Why, the Premier is killing "the very-roots of the protective7 system. Boston Post., v - .- -r :r? ' rjGThe people of Pi ttsburgh are drown- ing their trouble by making themselves r !

There has been 'of late,, as our business readers generally know, an unusnal activity ill this and other markets in the leading ar ticles of Coffee, Sugar and 3Iolasses. - We find in the Boston Atlas of Tuesday a pulili- cation on the subject, communicated : by some one who has evidently driven it his close attention. Whether the imiwessiom ot the writer ana the views which he ad vances are presented from motives of self interest, our readers must determine for themselves; but be this as it may, the arti cle will, we have no doubt, be read with at tention. After some remarks, touching breadstuffs, tea,&a, he proceeds: We w ill next consider coffee. This arti cle has been at n low jtoint, for several years and its cultivation, in some -arts of the world, has been gradually abandoned; while at the same time, in Brazil and the Island of Java, owing to their prolific soil and low price of labor, the production has increased, until recently the extreme low price seems to have checked any. increase, even in those countries. F6r the last three years, , there has been no perceptible augmentation of stocks showing that consumption has a Ixyut kept pace with production for the last 12 months. . Taking a view of Europe and this country, it is probable, that the con sumption has been beyond the production; Let ji3 now examine its present jwsition. With moderate stocks, and diminished pro duction, from various causes, a considerable advance may, we think, with confidence, be looked for. The hurricane, and severe drought, the last year, on the Island of Cu ba, has nearly destroyed the coffee crop on the north side of the Island, and djminihed it more than one half on the south; " and, in place of an average crop of fifty millions of pounds, not over hiteen millions will be ex ported in IS 15. In Brazil, the great coffee country of the present day, the crop is, from the best data we can get full 150,000 bags short of the past two years, or forty four millions of pounds. In the Island of Ja va, the next great producing country, the crop of which is put down at an average of 900,000 piculs, ol l.i-5 pounds each, accord ing to all statements for the past few months, the crop had suffered so much from drought, that only two-thirds of a crop was anticipa ted. We will' suppose the deficiency one quarter, or 1225,000 piculs, of 133 pounds each; or, in round numbers,- thirty millions of pounds . r In St, Domingo, and the Brit ish Colonies, a constant diminution of pro duction has been felt for several years and, as there is no source Irom whence to de rive an increased supply, or where produc tion can be increased, we must put down the diminution of the production of IS 15, as compared with the average, at 109,000,000 pounds, say Cuba Jj, Brazil 11, and Java 30 a formidable item; truly, and. which will doubtless cause a material alteration in the value of the article ere long, although, it is evident the deficiency is already felt, to some extent, from the actual advance expe rienced within the post few weeks. We next consider the important article of sugar, in which even more important chan ges in value seem likely to occur than in a ny which have occupied our attention. It has now become a matter settled, that Cu ba, the great sugar country of the 'world, will not make 'over about one third of an average crop that is, tle crop of ISM was, estimating hhds. with boxes,, equal to one million boxes, of 17 arrobas, or 423 pounds, each equal to 425,000,000 pounds. ' In stead of calling the present crop two thirds short we will estimate it 40 per ct. only, or r- ' 273,600,0110 lb.

A We have thus the enormous deficiency of three hundred and thirty-eight millions of production in the three principal sugar pro ducing countries of the world. On the oth er hand, let us see where we are to' look ' for the increase in the production of this staple. In this country, Louisiana has given the lar gest crop ever known now estimated at 175,000 hhds. of 1000 lbs. each, net weignt against 103,000 hhds. last year thus giv ing an excess of 72,000 hhds, or equal to 72 millions lbs. The mapleug ir crop, an im portant item in this country, is probably not, by' many millions, as large as the test year, which was the largest yet known: star ' - . .

An amount e pial to the, whole stock on hand in Europe and the "United Slates, on the first of the present year. When we take into viewthe fact, w hicli can e well authenticated, that for 3 successive years, it has been apparent that consumption has, in the aggregate, gained upon production, from "the circumstance that storks on hand, each successive year, have shown' invaria bly a slight diminution upon the existence of the preceding one, wo must at once, see that this great deficiency of production the present year will create a new feature in the article. "And every one who reflects upon the matter, must see at n glance, that a material advance in the price of the arti cle will be the inevitable consequence. In conclusion, we -wish to consider one other article of . merchandize, which is of trilling consequence in Europe, yet of con siderable magnitude and importance to this country, viz: Molasses. As nearns can be ascertained the produc tion of this article, in 1811, was equal to 2S4,000 hhds; whereas, we .-can tuily make cut, the present year, 207,000 hhds. And, in order that others may judge of this mat ter, we w ill furnish the following data: i i l'rodurlion li LMl. I ill.

It will be noticed that the produc tion of Louisiana, this year, as com pa led to thelast, does not compare correctly with the quantity given in the two years. This arise irom the tact that, usually, a una oi Sugar has given 50 gallons of Molasses; but this year, owing to lhe superior growth of cane, and its greater maturity, it nas not av eraged over 30 gallons per hhd. b rom the preceding it is ev ident that although this article has advanced considerably, so great a scarcity must ensue as will probably cause it to rule much above present rates, lor the residue ot tins year. Tub repose of tub Grave. We shrink from the scorching heat of the fun, or we shiver beneath the blasts that wither .us as they pass. The noise of the world is weary ing the noise and din of life. The low ers we gather have thenis that pierce us; and the tree, under whose boutrhs we turn for shelter, falls to crash us. -We take our way along crowded streets, nlecting nothing but strange laces that stare coldly as we pass no smiles, 'no welcome. We wander through greener paths, and perchance some are with us that we love or think we love; buteven in green jiaths there are briers to wound the loot, or the serpent's shining track crosses the road we go, or thoo with us fall away, and , utter loneliness is ill to bear. This is life but the dead have rest! Where ends our. path?. Taken through dreary crowded streets, or through desolate byways, where is our bed at last I Lor we cannot always wander, striving, struggling, hoping, tearing lor we scarce know what there must lie some place of solace, where shall we find it?

Art thou, cold? ask the close sepulchre to take thee to its narrow chamber,' thou wilt shiver in the winter wind no more. Doth thy brow ache with all this feverish excite ment this wirldwind of sound and motion? Press it to the cool mantle of the tomb; let the air, grown damp and chill from passing over graves, fan thy burning cheek it will woo thee to stillness and to calm, thou wilt forget the hot, turmoil of existence, thy new borne shall be so. quiet. v . Cow Pea. There is no doubt, iii the minds of many practical farmers, that the cow pea is the best renovator of worn out, or tired land, thatcah be' used in" the South. Plant early in Majv between, hills of corn, the produce for hogs alone will doubly pay all cost; it will in reality almost equal the corn crop. The vine and foliage will not only shade the land, but protect Irom the washing, and a do rd a fine quantity vsf veget able matter to turn under, the reports! ur nished by experienced farmers, in various parts of our country, particularly in South ern countries; prove this beyond a doubt.

Cunc von Disti:mieh in Cattle.- Tho Earl of Essex says, that this first showed itself in one of my cattle by its discharging abundant saliva from the month, with son ami inflamed tongue and gums, very dull, no appetite, confined bowels, nnd very hot horns. 1 then desired the bailiff to give the animal one-half pint of the spirits of turpen tinewith one pint linseed oil: repeating the oil in twenty-four hours, nnd again re peating it according to the statu of the evac uations. At the end of tweutydbur hours iiiore the bowels not having been well moicd, I repeated, I Kth turpentine and oil. In two days the beast showed svmptoms of amendment, and in three or four took to liH feed again, and did perfectly well. All the yard beasts, nnd two ol the fattening beasts, have had it, (five others 1 had sent to London before the diseaso appeared,) and all have been treated in the same manner with perfect success. Haifa pint of tur pentine is the smallest, and one pint the largest, dose during three or four days. Little food, besides oatmeal gruel, w as giv en. Am.Agr. Yeast from Potatoes. As it is some times convenient lo know more than one method of making potatoe yeast, which we have somewhere met with. Boil potatoes, of the best ami most mealy sort, (lor poor, heavy, waxy potatoes are good for nothing for this business,) till they are thoroughly done and their kins liegin to peel oil Strip oil" the tdvins, and mash them up very smooth and put as much hot water to them as w ill make the mash of trie consistency of com mon thick cream. Then add to every pound of potatoes two ounces tf coarse brow n ci gar, or molasses will . "liswer, nnd when blood warm; stir in for every pound of pd-i-toes, two spoonsful of old or common ycad. Let this ferment for twenty-four hours. A pound bf potatoes will make in this way nearly a quart of yeast, and which will keep for three months so the cook says. She also says you must lay your bread eight hours before you bako it.' Albany Cultiva tor. " ' Hemp. The cultivation of hemp has, till the last few years, been neglected in most of our States, except Kentucky; and vast quantities of this article required for Amer ican consumption, have, been procured prin cipally from Iluisia. The .Russian hemp, like all other Lurojcan commodities, was considered superior to our own, and conse quently claimed a preference in our mar- kets. But upon a proper examination, A merican hemp is found to equal the Hussian article, when managed with proper rare, nnd hence has within the last few years. received more encouragement than former- ly. , The consequence is, that culture has extended into Illinois and Missouri, which States now supply the market with a very largo portion. l he following facts w ill ex hibit the rapid increase in Uiehcrnp cultiva tion. In li3D, our imrortations of hemn a- mounted to $C07,77C; in I S 10, to $S0,777; in 18Il,toSG0D0I;in IS12, to $207,819. This presents a diminution in our imports which has been wholly supplied from homo cultivation. But few entertained the opin ion, a few years tiuce, that American hemp would find a market in Lurope at so early a day as the present;. yet it h true that w e am now shipping hemp to -western Europe. The receipts of hemp at New Orleans in 1841 and 1812, were 1,211 bales; in IS 13 and 184 1, they were 15,000, principally from Kentucky, lllmoii and Missouri, ,thu increase being principally from the latter two. Such encouragement should be af forded hemp-growers, as will at any rate se cure 'a sufficient supply for our own con sumption, by giving our own article tho preference. The western country w nU greatly diminish tjieir expense of consump tion, by commencing the manufacture of hemp goods, of which a very small portion are produced in this country, notwithstand ing the vast consumption.
