Thirty-sixth Anniversary of the Defence of the Fui tthe Daythe Ceremonies the Outpouring of the People I From the Terra Haute Express, of Sep tember 6. We have just finished participating in the ceremonies of this great day. the 36th anniversary of Taylor's defence of Foil Harrison, and will endeavor to give a brief description of some of the scenes which will be Ions remembered in this purl of Indiana, on this, the proudest day ol our State. On tlio evening of the 4th, streams of people from all points of the compass were found wending their way to this place, and at nightfall our town was literally full, and although the private houses were thrown open, they could not contain the multitudes of human beings which were seen in all quarters, and many passed the night in their wagons in town or on the way-side near bv. After supper the Court House was illuminated, and was instamly filled with an audience of freemen the very bone and sinew of the country, who hail left their simps, farms and daily occupa tions, to spend a day or two in honor of Zachnry Taylor the people's candidate for the" Presidency. As soon as oil were seated and silence was observed, Usher F. I.indcr, Esq., Presidential Elector of the Illinois District, was called to the stand, and in a very excellent speech, though la boring under severe hoarseness, he delight ed his audience, and often brought shouts and huzzas fiom the assembly. After a few momenis of intermission, and the evening being very sultry, a mo tion was mode lo retire to the open air in front of the building, vthen that gallant whig champion and eh quent orator of our own State, Henry S. Lane, of Monigome i y, wns called for, and mounting a lable at the door, he pouted forth a flood of politi nl truth, which el cited shouts of applause. The old Whig fire seemed to be re kindled anew upon every altar, and not until a late hour whs he pn milted to leave the stand. E. W. McGauhey, Whig elector in thip, the 7th District, was then colled for, and after much importunity on his part to be then excused, he was permuted to Keep himself in reserve for the following day on the ground of the celebration. Ceremo nies in town then ceased, and all retired for the evening. At 8 o'clock on the morning of the 5th, at the firing of a signal gun on the prairie, an attempt was made to foim the multi tude inio one common procession, to march up to the Fort, two and a half miles north, but it wns impossible to do so, for it seemed we had not ground enough in town for them all to stand upon. A procession, however, was formed, covering all the streets from the Court House, east to the Prairie House, but lhse out of the proces sion were more than those in, and each on his own hook" made his way by all acces sible rnmls to the ground intended for 1 lie celebration. At this lime, we left town in a Imgny. as we thought by u by-way, but we fiiii'nd hryund and behind us, a constant stream of people; n horse back, in enrrin es anil on fool, a II going to tho ' Old Furl" the attractive point ! the day. At about ten oYhuk in the morning, the Inst end of the innin profession arrived on the ground, and the public ceremonies of the day commenced, by Col. Bloke in troducing Gov. Letcher, of Ky., to the as sembled thousands, male and f'emnlc, as the President of the day. The old Kentucky Governor responded to the call in a short address, and very soon gave all to under stand that he had, perhaps for the last time, volunteered lo battle for his country, and although he had grown gray in her service, he could not be an idle spectator when Old Zatk was in the field. When the President took his seat, letters from Gen. Tuylor, Milliard Fillmore, Andrew Stewart and Wm. I. Dayton, were read, and the Vice Presidents and Secretaries of the meeting were announced, consisting of some fifteen of ihe former (among whom we noticed Col. John D. White, of Kipley, and other gentlemen from distant parts of the country) and perhaps a half dozen of the latter, i lie puoiio speahinji oi iiie day then commenced under ihe direction of the Vice Presidents. The central stand was occupied by It. W. Thompson, tho southern by E. W. McGauhey, and the northern by Henry S. Lane, all speaking at the same time, until the signal gun for dinner. After dinner was over. Hie central stand was occupied by Gov. Letcher, and John II. Thompson, of Indianapolis, and the southern stand by John Ewing, the northern being without a speaker at the timo. . . . ... . . . , It is impossible now to give a sKetcn oi any of the fine speeches to which we lis tened, and where all were excellent, h would perhaps be improper lo attempt na mina the superior; from our Kentucky pre oilcctians, however, others will excuse us for saying that Governor L. certainly made a most elluciive address ono ihat not oniy confirmed every Tavlor man of ihe nssem lily, but which will likely draw largely to his strength from those who may have de termined to vole fur General Cass. The old man was truly eloquent, persuasive and effective, as also were those to whm we have alluded, and we Ihtnk from thrs day until ihe election, we shall have a doily ac cession of friends to the cause of Gen. Toy lor in Indiana. The numbers present were variously es timated et from fifteen lo thirty thousand those who did not wish lo have seen a large assemblage taking ihe smaller figure some a little less, while Ihe other side invanauiy claimed the latter amount. We are nol judge of such things, nnd can only say tlia t about twenty acres ot a grove seemed lit terally jammed, while the adjoining prairio and living beings of both sexes, horses, wag ons, carriages, &c, 'scattered pretty much all over it. .We will never agree thai there was one being less in this vast assembly than was the nnmber of the veteran army tinder Sania Anna, which attacked General Taylor at Buena Vista. . Persons at a dis tance may form some estimate of the mem bers present, when we stale thai Terre Hnutewns full ihe evening previous, and that by sun-rise next morning, all ihu ave nues to the place were crowded. Our del egation alone, took two hours lo piss over the Wabash bridge, and the common excla mation on ihe ground was, "this ts the lar gest assembly I ever savi." Un returning lo 1 erte llaute in the even ing, the court-house was lightened up and filled to overflowing, with gentlemen, anx ious lo hear the orators talk about Old Zack and until 11 o'clock, at which lima we left, ihe "slated preaching of the word" was el oquenilv dispensed from truthful lips, bv Messrs.'!'. II. Nelson, of Park; G. S. Orlh. of Tippncanoe, I'. F. Linder, of Illinois, nnd Capl. Osborn, of ('lay. This, indeed, wns an inleresting meeting a refreshing time with the friends of Gen. Taylor. After Captain O. concluded his remarks, we un derstand Cnpt, Rosseau was sent fur, and taken nut of his bed, to speak to the multi tude, about his late commander. We were nol then present, but were in hearing of the court house, and we thought it would have been beaten down such enthusiastic huz zas we have seldom ever heard. We think the signs of the limes hereabout, since this tremendous outpouring at Fort Harrison, ate unmistakeable on the side of the peo ple, and in favor of their candidate for the Presidency. A "little more grape" ond the "lnir.l is tip." We have not time now to sny more we intend this only as an outline, hut we hope next week to give a more precise account and allude pariicuhu ly to the tniiny burning eloquent addresses which were made upon lhi never to be forgotten ocrasion. The day was very fine, cool and agreea ble, and but for the dust in the roads, was just such as any one might have chosen to appropriate honors to the brave old soldier of ihe Rio Grande. Every thing passed off finely and agreeably dinner cooked well and all cat up good music bands from Paris, Danville and Salem good speaking handsome ladies clean chrildren, &, all of w hich, taken in the aggregate, made the day one of the most remarkable ever passed in Vigo. In the name of General Taylor we lander the thanks of the Whigs of Indiana to every one present at the the atre of his earliest victory on the banks of ihe Wabash. MISSOURI ELECTION. SENATORS ELECT.

In Madison county nothing has been done of late, utid what wus done previously was on private terms. The new crop is represented, according to all ccuutits received, as very short in quantity and of very iniliir.-reut quality, and the aine will apply to that of Ohio, Maryland and Vir. 'ioia. GRAIN The New York Sun of the I4th inst.says: A spirit of speculation in breadstuff is be t'nmiiig rilu in Wall street, wilh some indicu lions of an alarming tendency. We say ularming, bcciuso no speculation could be in ore injurious lo this country at this lime than one which would induce American capitalists to in vest all tht-ir available funds in breadstuff.-, u ilh a viow of waiting six mouths for higher prices. No more effectual means eould be uilopted to cripple the resources f this country, and to deprive us of the pn fits we are likely lo !nin in i-upplying ihe English markets. High prices, us we have said hulure, can nut he ex pected in England under the depressed Condi tion ol manufactures ana commercu in thai coiintrv. and unless we con supply Iter wants at prices within her means, she will be driven to other and rival granaries. To gain that same position in ihe corn ttaJeof ihe woild thai wh now occupy in ihe cotton trade, we have only to obey the laws of lade. Lei those who want our supplies come and pay for thnni, and we shall gam more ill the end by this course, than if we attempt to force prices. Lo.nuon. August 14, 1048. Tho two principal suiu'C's of domestic occu pation nnd conversation are the pota'oe and ih-t grain crops and the cholera. As respects the potato crop, there is a growing conviction that a will be aluiosv a complete failure. I lately traveled through a rich country, nearly forty miles in extent, in which I did not see a single field of potatoes untouched with blight, and the sane reports are made of almost every oilier dts'rict, and very seiiuus apprehensions exist as to the late of the entire crop, though it is loo early yel to form any decided opinion upon the suhjecl. It is impossible, however, to deny tiiui the continued wet und cold weather threat lis in fe very prejudicial, not only lo the pota toes, but also to the grutn crops. With respect to ihis latter, no general opinion cm be formed excepting as to ihe broud tact that, so fur as wheal is concerned, we can not look for a large, most probably lor an average crop. On the one hand, if (contrary to ull appear ances) ihe potato crop should prove good, then wo might look for moderate prices of grain, wi'.huut any veiy large imuortaiions: bat if, on the other hand, theie should be. as is now to be apprehended, a considerable destruction ol the potato crop, in addition, lo at best, an indtf- lerent wheat crop, then it is evident that we must have recourse to very extensive impor tations of foreign giain. t turn the.

Another new Silver Mine. One of the richest veins of mineral yet discovered, we are (old, has been lotind in the valley ol San Jose. This delightlul region piomiaes not only to yield profusely the fruiis of hus bandry,but to be of the first importance as another and extensive field ol mineral. A citizen ol the Town of Sin Jose has furnish ed us, relative to (he discovery of the new mine, the following particulars: Pukdlo pe San Josk, M irr.h 23, '48. Some lew weeks since, Mr. J. F. Reed, of this place, left on a prospecting expedi tion, and four miles distant on the side of large hip, near the edge ol the p'ain, discov ered a vein of slver ore, which is without doubt, the richest ever discovered in the Mexican Republic. The vein is three and a half feel thick, having an uninierrupti d run east (or three miles, Ihe depth yet un known. With a few hours Inbor, there ha been uncovered several tons of ore. Jt is fine ore and requires but little expense in smelting. Viewing ii throughout, locution, thickness of tho vein, and richness of the mineral, it will prove to be a magnificent concern. Messrs. Ruckler and Reed have submit ted us specimens of their new discover) , to geiher with a most perlect specimen ol the lamous quicksilver ore from the mines ot New Almadin the richest we have ever seen. Mr. Alexander Forbes recently sailed from Monterey, with a cargit of quicksilver. 20,000 dollars in value, the products ol the mines of New Almadin, nenr the valley ol Sin Jose, and extracted within the short space of three months AFTER THE BALL: A DREAM OF ERLY LOVE.

So far from the Lady Agnes being of fended by this presumption, she treated it as a pleasent jest; and when her lover appeared most serious, she was most mirthful upon the subject. Al length came ihe ball at Hartley house. Arun. dal was compelled to leave town suddenly, in consequence of the illness of a beloved parent; and he intimated his wish that Agnes would fore, go the pleasure of the ball on thai account. She declined acceding to his request. He redoubled his entreaties, hut in vain. "Besides," he added, "Lady Hartley is Colonel Floringlon's sister, and your appearance there without me wovld give a color to the represents lions which that peison has so unwarrantably made." 0!' exclaimed the Lady Agnes, -I row per. celve your inoiiveof wishing to deprive me of ihe ball.

'Be under no apprehension my dear Edgir, upon that point,' said Lady Agnes with a fiown; 'I trust I have sufficient dlscietlon to take caie of it myself.' One unkind ward provoked another, until this lovers' quarrel terminated in the expressed deter inination of the lady io attend the ball at any risk, and dance with Colonel Floiington. 'You will think better of it! sa'd Edgar. 'No!' responded Lady Agnes: and tht y parted. "And ihus can woman barter all That makes and gules her gentle thrall! Thus she can fling her wealth aside.

The ball was over; and the Lady Agnes, fa. ligued wilh the rich employment, sat in her dress ng room, gazing upon the minor that rthVcieU her beauties, ond recalling in her mind the glo ries of the scene iul ended, when sudden'y her eyes fell upon a small note before her.

"Wo have not heard the result from the Buffalo Convention, but takes it for granted that Van 15 ii re n will be the nominee. If so, he will greatly injure Cass, whose prospects were at best, nut good. For instance, in New York, upon the old issues, Whigs and Democrats stands about 200,000 votes each. All agree that Van Buren will divide the Democrats about equal, while ho cannot get more than 40,000 ultra Abolition Whigs thus leaving Taylor a large majority; but Taylor will get, even in New York, a num ber of Democrats. In this State there ore about 4000 Abolition whigs who will go fur the Fiec Soil candidate while at least double that number of Democrats will go for Taylor Col.
