We do wot claim to be a prophet ; nor nre we by the distant tie of consanguinity, related to that once worthy class of men ; and conse quently cannot tell whether or not a collision will take place between this country and Mex ico. We can state the facts and let others draw their own conclusions. It seems that ono Franklin Pierce, in the plenitude of his benevolence nnd power as President of the United States of America, de puted and appointed one Wm. Carr Lank to be the Territorial Governor of New Mexico. It further aeemelh that said Governor, so appoint- ed as aforesaid, immediately on the receipt of his commission as said functionary, repaired to the scene of his labors, and entered upon the discharge of his duties. Being the chief executive officer, it became his duty to see that the laws were enforced and executed within his bailiwick, and to see ihnt all the cii:sens thereof were protected in the en joyment of their rights. This situation of nf fairs naturally gave rise to tho question as to j the territorial limit of his jurisdiction. A nar- i row strip along the side of New Mexico is claimed by Ihe Governor of Chihuahua, to which, after a careful examination of all the au- thotities within our reach, we lmve no doubt Lis titlu is frood. Governor Linn coveted this bit of land, and, without taking the proper attpt to inform himself as to tho proper ownership thereof, proceeded, by proclamation to annex il to the territory of New Mexico. As a matter of course the Mexican Govern or proieited ngainst this unusually summary manner of settling teriitorial boundaries, nnd informed his excellency. Gov. Lane, that he would not peacaMy acquiesce in nny such high handed assiunplions. The administration ni Washington, has not disavowed the net of the Gov. of New Mexico, thereby making itself a party te the fraud. This is the case in a nut shell. Whether there be nny sign of war in it, or not, wu aro not soothsayer enough to determine The event, probably, will hu that Mexicans will lako possession of it by force; Gov. Lane will or ganize a force to drive them off, nnd ihe loco foco Cngres which is lo assemble on next De cember, will declare, salemnly, that "a state of war exists by act of Mexico." One mistake may be found in the above by those acquainted with tho facts. Gov. Lnne waa appointed by Mr. Fillmore, but he has chan ged his politics since. Tlic mark!ia. As Carrolllon is henceforward to be n place of considerable importance nsa produce inni ket, we will endeavor to keep tho readers of the Free Press posted as to tho rates at which various articlea of commerce arc bought 6i sold.

M r.

How vain is tho hope of man ; even Mr. T., in the confident security of his own "strong mindedness, has been carried away by the de lusion.

Tlio Railroad Journal has nn nrtiele thai will attract attention, upon the scheme of a grand trunk line road from Detroit through Canada, via Mi;tr d, to Portland, Maine. The princi pal operators in this are Hon. Francis Hicks, on behalf of Canada, and Hon. Wm. Jackson, member of Parliament. Kuiinent English con tractors have been secured, all matters of dffer ence have been arranged, the entire route has been consolidated into one company, with pow er to purchase or lease that part of the road in Maine leading to Portland. There is to be n branch to Quebec, and the line will also, in time, be extended to Ilalifux. The distnnce from Detroit to Portland, by this line, will he about 970 miles. As a part of the grand scheme ii bridge is to be built across the St. Lawrence at Montreal, at an estimated cost of six millions of dollars. Mr. Jackhon has been spending much time on tho line, and has made a perso nal examination of the route. From the char acter, wealth, etc., of tho persons interested, we look upon this magnificent scheme as a very probable candidate for reality.

State Commishuinicr ok Common Schools.

Editor and Grand Jtnur, Singular Present ment. Tho following is a portion of the late presentment of tho Grand Jury of Marion coun ty, Georgia. As n literary production, it is something of a curiosity ; and, for its free use of plain and unguarded language, it is certain ly entitled to credit, if not lo be emulated, und is well worthy of being recorded : "We regret to be subject to the necessity of noticing in our general presentments nn editori al which appeared in llio last V&de nwum, a littlo sheet published nt Buena Vista, which says, in alluding to the' action of the Grand Jury upon special presentments for gambling, that almost every man in town is presented for playing at some game, many of them upon some simple charges ns playing whist for segars, oys ter suppers, etc. Ou ordinary occasions we would not pass by such nn insinuation wilh si lent contempt ; at least we would consieler the source from whence it came as the nigger said when tlio Jackass kicked him ; but as the ar ticle alluded lo carries falsehood so palpably on its face wu deem It necessary in exculpating ourselves from l.hu charge, lo give it the I.e. li is an oiu saying tuai me ucmi nines wi the shoe pinches, and we suspect the said edit or has been caged by tho tiger himself, and if we could get evidence of that fact, we could even condescend to present him, and consider that we were doing our duly, as we sincerely believe wo have elone in nil our presentments upon the subject alluded to by tho same suspi cious editor of the said picayune pnper. Tight Money Maiikkt.

Tho mere mention of the abovo facts must satisfy any .sane man that the useless withdraw al of such an amount of money necessarily cre ates distress. It is a wilful embnrassment of the business faculties of tho country to lock up such a treasure by the government. The Whigs, however have the satisfaction of know ing they are not responsible for it. How truthful, )md being truthful, what a fearful lesson is contained in the following lit tle paragraph ! Bead it and think of it, 0 ye who cast the hrst Btones at the sinning ! and learn that Heaven in its mercy has pity for the Fallen, while a ventrcauce is in store for the I heartless nnd the deceiver, whom your false I forgiveness would excuse : When a rakish youth goes astray, friends gather around him in order to restore him to a path of virtue. Gentleness and kindness are lavished upon him to win him back again to in nocence and peace. No one would suspect that he had ever sinned. But when a poor, confi ding girl is betrayed, she receives the brand of society, and is driven from the path of virtue. Tho betrayer is honored, respected, esteemed ; but his heart broken victim knows that there is no peace this side of tho grave. Society has no helping hand for her, no smile of peace, no voice of forgivness. There are earthly moral ities unknown to Heaven. There is a deep wrong in them, and very fearful are the conse quences.

Smith, of the Mansfield ( Ohio) Stales man, has evidence that the Brotherhood of Thieves, the existence of which was proven on a recent trial for burglary, in Lorain eounty Ohio, extends over every State in the Union. He says : 'We are aware of the existence of said society by the confession of one of its members who hud loo much conscience for such a brotherhood. He stated that they were to gether for robbery, theft, counlerfiting and mur der, and to protect each other from the fangs of ihe law by being witnesses for each other, and iriKmL' on tunes when the.v eoulel. Ueatn ne said was) the penalty of any betrayal of their secrets or plans, or any o! Mcir Droiueruooa, or of any infidelity to their secret obligations He farther -tales that this society is extended to every Slate in the Union has brauchec and j high officers in all the Slates that its menbers were respectable and numerous many ot them occupying important stations ; and having a wide influence, some are members of churches and church officers, and attend to the forms of religion, such as asking a blessing and attend ing to family worship. These statements were made in confidence, under circumstances calcu - m " l0 ,eftVe ,iu,e or no do(lbt of their trulh Tne name of this humble penilent conftssor dare not be given, as he would certaiuly be put t to death if his confession should come to the , knowledge of his broJierhood. There can be no doubt of the existence of this society, and it is n fearful state of things, and shows to what use secrecy can be put. To have secret oalh ! bound and banded robers, thieves and murder ers mixed up with the community, and enter ing into our families, and spying out all our pre cious things and at the same time praying wilh us and going to the sacred communion is truly a horrible state of society. But so it is ; we know not the danger to which this alarm may expose us, but ihe community ought to be ap prised of these things, and we have concluded lo sound the alarm. A similar society was formed in Europe in 1 777, by Weishaupt, Zwack and Kniggee, which continued ten years' and was then brokcu up by the discovery of their papers in the hand writing of wack. They had receipts for pro ducing abortion, filling rooms with stupyfying odor and divers like hellish thing", scores of counterfeiting seals. We shall rejoice to hear of the like destruction and disruption of the one that has made its home with us. CJrcul Sale of Wool iu New York.

Dr. Lyman Beecher, we Belect tlio following i cliar(lcJte.i8tic nnecJote . One night Mr. Beecher was awakened yy a sound nt his window, as if some one were draw ! ing cloth through a broken pane of glass ; ! Bpringingup, he dimly saw his clothes disapear- ing through a broken window a thiet having taken a fancy to them, Waiting for no cere monies of toilet, he dashed out through the door after him. The rascal dropped the clothes nt once, and put himself to his best speed. But Lyman was not the man to be rascally outrun snecialv when thusstrinned to the race. After dodging a few times, and turning several cor ners, the caitiff was seised nnd marched back by the eager student. He ushered him into his room compelled him to lie down on the floor by the side of his bed, while he more comforta bly ensconced in the bed, lay tho night long watching him ; the silence being broken only by an occasional 'Lie still, sir.' In tho morn ing (he culprit was taken before a magistrate, who was evidently a lineal descendant of Jus tice Shallow. ' The magistrate, after hearing the particulars asked Mr. Beecher, 'whether in turning the corners he lost sight of the man at all.' He re plied that he was out of sight but a second, for he was close upon him. 'Ah, well, if you lost sight of him at all. you cannot swear tohis iden tify,' and so tho fellow was discharged. Mr. B. met tho fellow several times afterwards, but could never catch his eye. Early Tomatoes. There is probably no fruit which is at pres ent more generally nnd deservedly esteemed, than the Tomato. Its medicinal virtues aro more universally recognised by the practitioners, and very few gardens are destitute of it, though owing to various causes not necessary to men tion, Success in cultivating it is raerly attained. The soil best adapted to this fruit, where it is required early in the season, is a fine dry sand. A shovel full of old, well rotted manure in each hill, will be sufficient, apd the plants after they come up, require ouly to be hoed and weeded, to insure an abundant crop. Sticks lo keep ihe fruit from coming in contact with the dirt, may be supplied, or a few bushes placed around the plants, will be a good protection. On very rich land, the vines possess great vigor, but the maturation of the fruit is retarded, and less sap id and healthful. For sauce, pies and pickles, as well as for a variety of other uses, the tomato is unsurpassed by any vegetable wilh which we are acquainted. The yield is very large, con sequently -a full supply for domestic purposes and uses may be obtained from a few hints. The yellow Tomato is generally prefered to the red, though both are good. Preference is perhaps, in this, a matter of mere taste, after all. In the vicinity of large markets, as much clear profit is frequently realised from a few rods of land, cultivated in early tomatoes, as from many a hundred acre farm, which produces only the ordinary kinds of vegetables and grains. 6er mantown Telegraph. "'.mill lis viol . This young man is fast making for himself a solid and bnlliant reputation as a traveler and. writer. He is now in Asia, on his war to pen etrate if possible the inner provinces of Japan. The following touching and Uauiifnl incident in his life is not generally known. It is copied from a biographical sketch of him by R. H. Stoddard. Taylor was born at Kennel's Square, Pennsylvania, on the llih January, I8t6, and is now only 28 years of age. After speaking of his tour to California, his biographer says : "On his return to the United States. Taylor resunnel i.u desk and duties in Ike Inbuue aft J lice where he remained till the summer of 1851. But in the meantime,' a chantre e me over the j up rit of his dream : the "friend" of his early poem, the "Lillian" of his Rhymes of Travel jdied. Years before, they had betrothed ihem- selves in sincerity and truth ; it was their only wish in life to call each other by the endearing names of "wife" and "husband," two of the I sweetest and roost holy words ever altered oa earih. For years the marriage was deferred, perhaps," says Dr. Griswold, in an affection' ale allusion to the circumstance, "for the poet 1 to make his way in the world ; and when he came back from California there was perceived another cause for deferring it she was in ill health, nnd all that could be done for her was of no avail ; nod the suggestion came, the doubt, and finally the terrible conviction, that she had the consumption and was dying. He watched her, suffering day by day, nnd when hope was quite dead, that he might make little journeys with her, nnd minister to her gently as none could but one whose light came from her eyes, he married her; while her sun was setting he placed his hand in her's, that hu might go wilh her down into the night. There are not many such marriages; there were Bcver any holier since the Father of mankind looked up into the face of our mother. She lived a few days, a few weeks perhaps, sad then he came back to his occupations, and it was never mentioned that there had been any such events in his life." Could the sanctity of privnte letters be exposed to the public eye, hi grief and manliness on the occasion would shed a new lu -tint; upon his character ; but why al- ' lude lo these things ? It is ihe old, sad story; Ike beloved have been dying, and the bereav ed have been weeping for them ever since timet began. One Look. Amontr the suffering panics a , hf late accident .were an Illinois farmer, Mr. iwombly, his wife and infant, and two of their connections rssiding in Vermont, Mr. Grey and Mr. Meserve, who had made them a visit, and hereon their return home to brine out thciir families and live near their Illinois relatives,. Mr. Twombly and his family were returning with them to make n visit until harvest time. At the time of the accident Mr. Tombly held) in his hand35J, liavingjustqassedover6t)lo Mr. Meservc, who was to net as treasurer to the company. The latter sura was just safely de posited in Mr. Meservc's pocket but the 35t has not been found. The collision threw Mr. Meserve up through the car into the water. Mr. Twombly found himself and a stranger confined together under the cRr, and were in that position for an hour, Mr. Grey's lifeless body lying near him. He could hear the cries of hi wife and child, bul he could do nothing for them. Mrs. Twombly was also buried under the car, her child underneath her and the lifeless body of another woman lying across her. Strange to say she escaped wilh only one bone broken and the child not n year old was appa rently uninjured. Thus aro human purposes thwarted. The mother lies bed ridden under the cam of a physician. Mr. Meserve has ta ken tho body of Mr. Grey to his Vermont home where the mourning of his wife and children j8 already I heard. Such is the experience of one entire company on board those fatal trains. How many such, and more melancholy ones, could be sketched. Ono child, we are told, that was found dead, still lies in charge of the coroner, unclaimed by any one. Where is its mother, father, friends ? Chicago Tribune. A Dani;eroi!8 Counterfeit. The Cashier of Franklin Bank showed us a three dollar bill on the Mahoning County Bank, which had ! been presented at the Franklin Bank. Tho plate is genuine, but the names of the officers ill. W. Taylor, Cashier, and Wm. Ilayan Pres ident, are forged. The officers of the Bank of Mahoning know nothing of the means by which these notes were brought into circulation. It may be that they were stolen from the en graver, or some one else through whose hands tlu;y had to pass before being signed by the proper officers.
