The year eighteen hundred and forty-six draws, to n
close, It* seasons have been uncom manly propitious,

its abundance to supply our cf-cesaitie* and nitnister to
our comfort*.

over torso of our Counties, ha* subsided, and internal
peace it restored to our citizen*, nr.d tranquillity to our
The most aubbxne ?p?>etac> connected with Civil Gov?
ernment is now exhibinng before ut. The Repretenta
tives of the Sovereignty ol our People, asw-mbled to take
to pieces and re-con?rmet the frame-work of the State
Government, have discharged the high trust and returned
to tbeir constituents, and to their pxiva'e duties wrthoi t
having excited passion, alarm or apprehension in the
community-, and our Freemen are examining their
labors, and preparing to pass a verdict of approbation or
rejection upon their work, with a vigilance inrpi.-ed by
a pervading patriotism, and with a calmness and confi?
dence which l-ree institutions can alone impart. Not
an individual in the State appreheards an encroachment
upon ids ju?t rigrit*. or an abridgement ??' his civil a:.-i
religious' pnviVava. from tbit peaceful and voluntary 1
revolution of his Government Stronger evidences of
high intelug.ence and sound morality in a People cannot
be afforded.
These, and innumerable other tempera, blessinrs of a
kindred character, constantly flowirg upon our State
and it* citizens, call for continued thankfulness to the
Bountiful Giver of every' blessing.
The Gift of a Saviour, and the full light of Divine
RevelaTion. are spiritual blessings which should awaken
to expressions of devout thankfulness the hearts ar.d
the voices of a Christian People.
I respectfully recommend Thursday tlie ticerjysalh
day uf Smember nert to observed as a Day 'it Pul
Thauktgiving ; that the Pi uple of the t'late. abstaining
from their ordinary bushv evocations may assemble
at their usual place* of Eeligious Worship, and. unitia
with each other, and with tin ir l< 1,'ow citizen* of many ?
of the other State?, may pay their tribute of thank* to
the Author of these and all temporal and spiritual good
gifts ; and may pour nut their hearts in prayer to Sim,
that Hit neb im&ea maybe continued to our Country
and that the signal blewnngs ol this year may be crowned
by the termination of our existing War? in an honorable
and Just Peaice.
in testimony whereof, I have caUied the privy seal oi
the State to be hereunto affixed witness n y

of October, in the year ol our Lord one thou ]

By order. iioRacit Moody, Private Secretary, j
Maror.'a Office. November 5*. 184^.
Believing that the observance ol tbe'timc-honured an
' torn of setting apart a day lor special Thanksgiving to
Almighty God for hi* bountiful Providence toward U9 as
a community during the past year, will be cordially re
ceived by my fellow-citizens.
I do in conformity with the recommendation of the
Governor of this c'tate, also reapectlully recommend
that the 26th of November, Instant, be observed for that
purpose, and that the people Hinpinil their ordinary
business, and assemble ?t llu-ir u-uai places of religious
wortbip. for the pnrpose of uuitini; wnli each other in
offering their tribute of praise and thanksgiving to the
Author of ?II spirituui .ml temporal good ; ami let those
of us who havn rrpecial eattse of gratitude to God manl
fest that gratitude, not only by the silent emotion of our '
hearts, but also by contributing of our pub?ta.-ice to the
necessities of our less lavored (eHuxN citizen?.
Given under my hand and the seal of Mayoralty uf said
city, the day nnd year first above written,
A. H. WICKLE, Mayor.
This is the day designated by the (governor ol ti?
ns well as some sixteen other States lor the Ai.ir.iui
Thanksgiving. Although iu our view the condition
and prospects of our Country cnll rather for solemn
Fatting nud Humiliation than for rejoii intr nnd ex
ultation. yet have we abundance fur which to be
thankful to the Author of all good. Gov. Colby of
Now-Hanipihire happily observed in bis Proclaim
tion that "the choicest blessings cease to l< bless
?ings when not received with gratitude tu their Al
'mighty Giver" On o calm consideration of our
Country'h attitude and bearings, we reverently re?
alise that she lias great reason tu render fervent
thanks to the Universal Father for these among
other mercies:
That, in a season of general failure anddeliciency
of the fruits of the eartb. our own Harvests have in
the average been ample, tilling our granaries ami
storc-iiousos to repletion, and enabling us to spare
largely of our abundance to check the ravages c-f
famine in tho Old World,
That internal Peace and trnnqnility have so gen?
erally been preserved to us throughout the year
now closing;
That Education, Morality. RoJigion, Arts and
Soieuces appear to be making a steady nud bone
. tic-ut progress among us ;
That the War which lias broken out beta ecu us
and the only adjacent Republic?horrible as all
War is aud execrable as is this War especially in
its origin and objects?has thus fur been wage.I
with less augmentation of misery and destruction
of human life thau might reasonably have I.n an?
ticipated i
That War haa evidently loat us fascination tor
the great mass of our people, ami is looked upou
by a large proportion of them with the uncompro?
mising abhorrence it so richly merits Tins War
does not appear to have strengthened its authors
and contrivers any where but among our ball-sav?
age borderers, while it bus powerfully contributed I
to their discomfiture throughout two thirds ol the
Union ,
That even with the war-shout sounding in their
ear*, tuid the stupidly malicious stigmaoi 1 Mexi
can' attempted to be tit?xed to all who oppose the
extension of our territory by conquest the public
mind evinoaa little and decreasing sympathy with
'the noise of the captains,' but inolinea more nnd
more daily to peaceful plans for the melioration of
Human Woes and the diffusion of Knowledge.
Christianity, a purer Civilization and the means of
general Happiness.
For these aud many kindred reasons we are glad
that a day?this day?lias been set apart as one of
Public Thanksgiving to the Fathei Mercies for
His unfailing though undeserved goodness to -ui
State and Nation. May it be generally and fitly
celebrated I

our possession, excepting only the schooner Amado,
whicn vessel, arterr.pi.sg t.> escape up the river, was
pursued by Lieut. Commandant Benham in the Lonita.
and captured.
Desirous of renehing Tabasco before they would have
time tor increasing their delenres.the detachment under
Captain Forrest was placed on board the largest of tie
csptured steamers, the Petrita, and she, with tic Nona?
ta, the Forward. And the barges in tow. and tbe.Vixen,

incidents ar.-ing trom the rapidity of the current and
i the circuitous course of The stream, we arrived at i! the
j next morning in sight ot Fort Acenchappa. intended to
command a niort difficult pass of the river. On our
. approach, the men employed in preparing the guns tor
: service tied, and we pas?cd it unmolested, but I was
I careful to cause the guns to be spiked.
Anticipating s?-rious resistance at this place, arrange?
ment' had been made for landing C<ipt. Ferres with his
; detachment a mile below the fort, to march up and car
I ry it by storm.
At noon, all the vessels anchored in line of battle in
. front of the city at half musket range, when I immmii
I aiely summoned it to surrender, the boats meanwhile
being employed .n securing five merchant vessels lound
' at anchor in the port.
To my summons sent by a flag with Captain Forrest,
a refusal to capitulate was returned, with an invitation
t.. me to tire as toon as I pleased. Suspecting, as 1 did,
that this answer was given more in bravado man in ear?
nest, and bring extrr rnely n iuctant to destroy the place.
I entertained the hope that a tew 'hots tired over the
buildings would have caused a surrender. Accordingly.
I ,1.rested the nun? ni the Vixen alone to be tired, and
at the Mac start, sending an order to all the vessels to
av.ed. ?o tar as pos-i'ile, in cii.-e "! a .???rvral tire, injury

learn whether it hail been cut down by our shot, or
purposely struck . the reply was that it had been shot
away, and the city would not be surrendered.
1 now directed CapL Forrest with the force under his
, command, to land and Luke ? position in the city, com?
manded by our gup*. Tiiis movement brought on a
scatlwiin : tire of musketry from various parts ot the city,
j which was returned by the flotilla.
Perceiving toward evening that the enemy did us but
I little injury, though openly exposed on the decks of the

In tnis position the vessels remainedsssJl night, the

the artillery ol the enemy, which it was supposed they
would have had the courage to have brought down un?
der cover of the night to the openings of the streets op
I pnsite to our ve?sels. but they left us undisturbed.
Learning that the merchants, and other ciruens of the
city, were desirous that a capitulation should he made
but were overruled by the Governor, w ho. regardless ol
canscqueuces, and secure himself against attnrk. whs
content thst the city should be destroyed rather than

not to tire again, but to pass down to Frontera with my
In the. morning, howt ver. the tire was recommenced

renewed orders to regard the consular houses so far as

j As an assurance of my sincerity. I now hoisted a

stream, intending to follow with the flotilla ; but. in vio
: latinu of the understanding implied in the before ruen
1 tioned correspondence, the enemy, on discovering that
j one of the prizes had drifted ashore in front of the cite.
I collected a large force within and behind the houses in
! the vicinity, and commenced a furious tire upon her._
Lieut. Parker, of this ship, in command of the prize.de
I fended her in the most gallant manner, and uicinately
succeed- d in getting her again sfl?at, having one of her
men killed and two wounded.
It was in carrying an order to Lieut Parker that Lieut

I to me from the fume we left l.izardn. and. conducting
himself during the bombard merit with remarkable le

throat. No one can deplore the late of this very valua?
ble young officer more than myself. His loss is Irrepar

It may well be supposed that on perceiving the attack
upon the prize. 1 reopened upon the city, which agair.
1 silenced their tire. I now proceeded with the rlou.h? and
? prizes down the river. One of the prizes, a small
; schooner, of little value, having grounded in a dangerous
pass, and knowing that it would be difficult to extricate
j tier without causing inconvenient delay, I ordered her
to be burned.
We arrived safely at Frcntera on the evening of the
i 36th the Vixen having towed down the river ri>e vessels
and several barges.
From Frontera I dispatched my prizes to th s place ;

Sivotu.?We hope those who think our praise of
this man extravagant will rend the following picturo oi
tin? impression his music ha' made upon the mind and
heart of a student, a poet, an enthusiast?B man with an
almost angelic intelligence and a heart quite childlike?
who sees and bears with the spirit, nor is fretted nor
exercised by the rude jangling of the untuned world ? ?
man whoso life is in harmony with his aspirations?
whose whole being floats in a softly undulating sea of
music :
What we could praise before as faultless, now seemed
great. The unalloyed delight whicb we could not re
tus?' to perfect beauty, was now deepened by a true
soul thrill. Wo owned the human.:v ol bis music . the
workings of a treat heart were in it, modestly veiling
metnselvcsin the very purity and perfeetness of their
own utterance. More and more we warmed toward
the ssoa, thanking him lor that melodious magic by
which he bridged over the distance between us. tltir
hearts said within us. M It is good to be with him ;" and
to he with him is to hear his violin. With what a joy
we satisfied ourselves beyond a doubt, that wo wen' in
the presence, not inert ly ol n wonderful performer, but
of a great artist?of one who by successful heroism of
stu ly has proved bis genuine location to a character
than which scarce any higher ran be borne by man. * ' *
Sivon has clearly proved himself the greatest violin?
ist who has visited this country. Not ouly is bo perfect
in all the det ills and in his separate passages . but there
.- perfect unity la his performance as a whole. He has
not of course, the wild Northern imagination of an Ok)
Bui!: but he has all the warmth and delicacy and di pfh
oi the sua ny poesy ol the South. and whereas the Nor?
wegian dissipates ins mind in musie, revelling in rest
less fantasies, vague and unconnected by any other logic
than thst "f their mere moodiness, in Sivori's music I
there is symmetry und progress and completeness. Nor
do we fee! that he lacks nny of the Strength, or any of .
the crystal clearness and detcrminntrness of outline so |
remarkable in VTeuxtemps; while be adds far more of :
passi.hi. chastened ulways and subdued.
Then. too. be has the modesty of a true Artist. We
could not detect the slightest affectation or pretence ?
He lives too deeply and -ineerely in his music: his look '
n:id manners are thus" of an innoernt and beautiful
child, trustingly and wonderingly following the guiding
band of Art through a boundless world of miracle and
beauty. He is pleased and inspired by your applause, 1
because he seems to want your sympathy in his deep
sen-e of beauty and in every little triumph which re?
ward* Ilia i'altlllul pursuit of it.
Then came the ? Prayer from Moses, 'executed on the
fourth String, it bud a body of tone nearly equal to the ;
v. Icncello; a:.ii there was a depth and earnestness of
expression in that prayer of which the human voice it
?elf is hardly capable. If Rossini hud conceived no other j
melody but that, it would have stamped him for a gen?
ius ; and to have heard tniit melody *,> brought out and |
transfigured as :t was in this performance, i. a memora- '
ablo thing in one s experience. The martial theme
which followed was in the extreme of contrast, full of
every frolicksome conceit. the melody was as it were
bewitched, and Blocked Itself in imitations of all sorts of
Instruments, especially a saury little pipe or whistle,
which made- you question the identity of the violin ?
Being tumultuously en< ored, the artist returned and to
our unspeakable delight, commenced the Adagio lirli^i
OSO of Urnst. This was the great thing of the evening,
and displayed his abundant capacity to appreciate and to
execute the deeper and le?s dazzling styles of music._
This was the music ol the soul and not ol mere . 'leer -
II.s performance of it was truly sublime ; be seemed to
feel it and be nlled with it, ami to address hirnsel to the
task as b> a religious act. The stillness of a deep emo?
tion pervaded the whole audience, and with souls thus
retreshed we could yield ourselves up all the mom
trustingly to the laughter-mo vfnggeiriu* of the " Carni?
val,' which be has to throwb^Msmatter of course at
the end of every Concert, before they will let him of.
i beie is tnis to bo ja.d about all the marvelous teat*
of Sivori's performance: that they do not weary you, ?
like the same sort of thing in others. This is partly be?
cause they ?rc .? pertectly done ; but partly also and1
m ich more, because there is a living genius in whatever
be does; tha feeling oi the dream is always fresh, like
the memory of bright green rrendows in childhood's
spring?tresh and marvelous as the story of Cndino ?
Every one felt netter and ir?s letter, we doubt not. from
his piaying. May blessings follow the pure young artist,
