United State* Loan.—The New York Com
mercial Advertiser, in commenting on that part of
the President’* Message, which says that the loan au
thori*ed by the kite session of Congress wa* not of
fered in Europe, says:
“It is doubtless true that ‘the foreign market has
not been resorted to,* in regard to this loan, directly;
bat we lielieve it is equally true that it lus been re
sorted to indirectly—that is to say, by some of the
holders of the scrip—and the result has been morti
fying in the extreme. For the first time in the his
tory of the republic; the credit of the Federal Gov
ernment has been blown upon both in Paris and Lon
“Attempt* to negotiate a portion of the new loan
were made in both capitals; and in both the reply
was that the bankers could do nothing with it. And
the reason of this want o( success was declared to he
pernicious doctrine of opposition here, touching the
repudiation of state liabilitses ; and the indication that
Mississippi was about to repudiate her bonds. The
capitalists of Europe, it was said, know little differ
ence if any, between our national and state obliga
tions. if tne latter repudiate their debts, they argue
that the former may do so likewise. Hence it so
happened during the last few months, that while
France, with an arbitrary government, burdened al
ready with an immense debt, has found ao difficulty
in obtaining a loan of 150,000,000 francs, nt a low
rate of interest, the Uuited States free, and compar
atively free from debt, with resources beyond them
all, have not been able to obtain a dollar.’1
The Steam Fire Engine belonging to some
of our insurance companies, was brought into Wall
street, and its capabilities tried. The experiment
appeared to us to be successful. It threw four pow
erful streams above the top of the Exchange, and
seemed to throw water enough to put out almost any
firo that could be started. At any rate, it threw a
shower into the neighborhood of our office which it
was not very comfortable to stand against. If there
is any doubt as to the full efficiency of this engine, it
is in the length of time it seems to take in getting up
steam. Tilts, however, may perhups be remedied.”

The Butchers or Paris.—Mr. Walsh states
that no butcher can carry on his trade in Paris with
out having purchased the patent or privilege of some
predecessor, aad this acquirement sometimes costs
as much as thirty thousand francs. But admitting
twenty thousand francs to be the average, and which
is believed to lie near the truth, this absorbs from the
five hundred butchers (the limited number in Paris,

The New York Express, a Whig j aper, says we

The Kastern mail this morning (ailed iroui beyond
Columbus (Geo.)
We have been requested to give as wide a notice
us possible, to the public, that some friends of the
Protestant Orphan As>luin Society will wait upon
them to-morrow, for contributions in aid of the funds
of that admirable charity. It is the regular amumj
appeal to the benevolent; on the results of which,the
operations of the society during the year, depend;
and it has been thought that this formofdirect appli
cation would be at least as productive to the fund for
the orphan, as the usual mode of Fairs, and interfere
less with the, aims of other meritorious associations.
Kncli I as its peculiar claims upon its friends, but all
have that common claim upon the heart, which knows
no distinction of sect or opinion—a claim pre
ferred without speech or utterance, by destitute in
'ants, for shelter and nurture, in a world whereon
they have been cast, in tin providence of God, with
out natural protectors.
Such an appeal cannot be without a ready response
in a community which, in the midst of its heaviest
afflictions has never lost itw sensibility for suffering
—or failed to give liberally from its means, to pur
poses of real charity.
We received a numl>cr of letters from Tuscaloosa
this morning. We have read them over carefully, fo
extract what information they contain of legislative
matters, being obliged to economise our space close!)
to-day—and wc find among copious details of motions
and movements, legislative political, little that is
of real action in UisimM^f tftc State.
There are, li m^lr, dcvelopemeiits there, which
make us fear for the success of any measure at this
session, which will improve the Banks, or strengthen
the financial system of the State. The Tax Bill in
troduced by Mr. James of Clarke, (and not as we
stated the other day, liv Mr. Jcmison of Tuscaloosa)
has little chance for passing, arising from the ultraisin
of u large party in the Legislature. The immediate
destruction of the whole Slate Banking system is
made, wo leaiu,an indispensable condition,!)) nearly
all the \\ higs, to the voting of any tax Air the sup
port of the State, and the relief of the Bank* Irom
that burden; and the Democrats have not strength and
union among themselves, to dispose of such questions
on their own responsibility. They are—though ma
ny of them are opposed to the system, and nearly all
profess to be anxious to get rid of its glaring evils—
unprepared with a substitute; unwilling to abolish it
without one—and, with few exceptions, opposed to
rearing up private stock Banks to lake its place.—
They have determined, we understand, to try the ex
periment of altemping some more changes and im
provements in the system, and let it Work a while
longer. Some of them continue to doubt whether any
efleclual restraints can be placed on the management
—and whether it would not l>c better to meet the im
portant question of a radical change of system, now.
We do not,|for ourselves believe in the expediency
of any further faltering or delaying, or in the likelihood
that this legislature can be induced to unite on any
valuable improvements, and we think it not uuiikciy
that the whole matter will be postponed to another
year, when it will become necessary for the people
themselves to talk strongly at the elections. Still it
is hut right to add that some of our friends at Tusca
loosa believe that the suspended debt will be put into
commission, the Banks limited to dealing in exchange
and business :p;i|>er jonly, state tax passed for slate
expenses and £tlic two^liundred thousand dollars an
nual appropriation to the school fund repealed. We
are not so sanguine, and we fear especially for the
determination evinced by the leading Whigs to do
nothing to relieve the system.
We are told that the prospect of altering the crimi
nal code in any material respect is not favorable.
It is said also to be unlikely that the chancery sys
tem will be abolished. A third district may be cre
ated and the system modified ia some respects.
'Pile day of adjournment is unsettled.
We shall publish in our next, several letters frem
mu friends, containing views that differ as much from
■-^nb olll£L- «*“•
Our readers will not have failed to perceive thai
there have been one or two significant changes in the 1
constitution of the standing committees in the House
of Representatives. The two important committees
of Ways and Means, and Foreign Relations, have been
re-organized so ns to give the (flay Whigs full con
trol. Mr. Cushing, who was chairman of the Foreign
Relations at the Extra session, has been displaced,
and John Quincy Adams takes his place. The plac
ing of Mr. Adams, with his peculiar notions, on the !
committee, is a sign of the disposition of the dominant
party against Southern interests. After having plac
ed Mr. Everett in England, to support, officially,
against that arrogant propagandist of abolitionism,
the rights of slaveholders, which he is committed in his
own person, to deny—it is but fitting that the same
party should make one of kindred opinions, the legis
lative organ oi intercom se at home, on the same sub
jects. With Adams to speak the voice of Congress,
in respect to slavery, and Everett to discuss it with
the authors in England, of that abolition whose ex
ample he tells us, worked his own conversion to the
practicability of immediate emcncipation—the rights
of die South in die pending controversies with Eng
land, which relate to those interests, are likely to
have but scanty protection. There is hardly a phrase
of odium w hich Lord Aberdeen might apply to the
| institutions of the southern United States, which
he could not justify, hy quoting the published opinions
of the American ambassador, and the official foreign
organ of the American Legislature.
From the committee of Ways and Means, Mr.
Rcnclier, a States-Riglu Whig, who retains a few of
his ancient States right notions, has been removed
because,at the extra session, lie was supposed to be
unwilling to repeal the sub treasury,although opposed
to it, until a substitute was agreed upon. He did
not approve of Mr. Clay’s forcing game, to tear
away all the safeguards of the public money, and
leave the country without any system at all, in order
to compel the executive to take an imperfect plan;
and therefore he was put out of the way of troubling
Mr. Clay any more by such scruples. The committee
is now constituted so as to give no chance for a “Fis
cality” except on the old Biddle plan, unless it pleases
Mr. Clay to “ swop” it off, as Thus. F. Marshall
says he did the Bank bills at the Extra session.
Notwithstanding these preparations for war upon
Mr. Tyler, it is rumored in the politicalcirclcs at the
North, that the Whigs may yet take the President’s
plan; and that their caucusses at Washington, are
not yet determined whether to fight the President on
that issue, or to give him a virtual triumph there, and
gef up something else upon which to mount their
chief for the Presidential race. Some of the “organs”
will be sadly out of tune, if it should happen that the
“orthodox” Whigs at Washington, give in to the
President’s “Government Bank.”

The United Whig Party.—The following
communication has been suit to us by one who was
present at the singular exhibition ol.Mr. Marshall at
Brown’s, and is vouched lor as to its truth; indeed,
it hears on its facq such strong marks of versimili
t'lde that none can (doubt who arc familiar w ith the
speaker's manner and feelings.—It exhibits the char
acter of Mr. Clay in such a strong and beautiful light
that all will understand from it the movements of the
whole Whig machinery of the extra session.—[Bal
timore Republican.
Sketch of the Hon. 1 liomus 1' • Marshall, of Ky. at
Brown's Hotel, made on the evenin'; of Wednes
day the 8lh instant, in presence of forty or fifty
gentlemen, all of whom can verify the following
remarks and particularly the Hon. Mr. Mangum,
of North Carolina, to whom they were chiefly ad
Mr. Marshall remarked in substance as follows:
“I came to Congress with the purest feelings and
must patriotic motives, thinking alone of my country
ami her welfare, but I had the misfortune to come
from a district formerly represented by Mr. Clay, and
I soon saw it was expected that I should be nothing
but a Clay-fixing— there never was a greater mistake
—I was not the man to become a thing of Mr. Clay**
fixing or any l> »dy else s fixing. 1 had been the best
triend he ever had, and came here with the same
feelings of friendship for him. Well, I went into
caucus with my party, and bukU firings na I saw there
astonished me;—not a man i a caucus thought of his
country or patriotism, but at it they went tor Presi
dent making. Mr. Clay proposed that the Whig party
in Congress should begin by calling on the Executive
Department for its plan of a Bank. 1 opposed this
because I thought it wrong to ask Department to
originate a measure which it was the duty of Congress
to originate. But the thing was determined on, unJ
when the Executive measure came, Mr. Clay woull
not take it, but brought forward his own measure,
and being the leader of his party, lie would not suflur
any body else to speak in the {Senate, but for si:
weeks he daily held forth and harangued on the Bind
bill. All tliis time the House of Representatives lay
low-—they had the gag upon their mouths, and nut a
man dnred say ** Barit** mice. At last Mr. Clay, find
ing that he could not pass his bill and might make
himself President by a compromise, came out nuJ
! surrendered every principle that was dear to his pai ty,
lie swapped Ins principles for his chance of the Presi
dency—he agreed that the general government after
passing its laws, was to be sent round bowin'and
i scraping, cap in hand, to each of the Slates for their
consent. Gracious (Jod! what a compromise!—what
a swapping was that! lie would swamp any thing
on earth for the Presidency. He damned old John
Q. Adams one day, and praised him the next, for the
purpose of reaching the Presidency, but it won’t do—
the American people won’t touch Henry Clay with a
forty foot pole—he can never be President during my
natural life. Here Mr. Mangum interrupted Mr.
Marshall, by saying—“d ** all true, whatever you say
about that compromise, but the subject is too painful,
and don’t let us talk about it.” Mr. Marshall replied
“But I will talk about-1 like to talk about it.
Well, sir, Mr. Clay got Tyler into what I call a fix
ing, and then he thought his game safe. You might
suppose Mr. (’lay by his looks to say—“Have not l
done the pretty thing, ami kicked up u dust?” ,
Why, sir, lie reminded me of the inflated Indian, who
strutteil about saying—“Whoop, Captain John, big
man me.” (It is* impossible to give any idea of the
irresistably droll and comic manner of Mr. Marshall
as he represented Henry Clay in the swaggering of
the conceited Indian. L is enough to say, that the
room. ‘“7. mS:
.v.. Jpl^^^WIIH^HWiead of every Kentuckian,
but I have done wi th^WrnTtappers and compromisers
as he. And in snyiug this, I may be putting a period
to my own political rxisieuce, for when I go home 1
expect to find such of my constituents as Mr. Clay
can influence rearing up against me. I can’t kelp it.
I am honest, and have no personal ambition, though 1
take no creilit to myself for saying so, because there
is not a dog iu Congress who does not continually say
the same thing, Now look at Dank of Webster—
poor fellow—Clay had him taken out the Senate where
liis magnificent qualities shone in splendor for the last
twenty years. Webster lias not dared to look at
Henry Clay and say his soul was his own.** Look at
that man, the greatest that ever the Almighty^created
with all those intellectual gifts which nature lias so
profusely lavished upon him—look at him—see him
degraded and abused ; his character blasted and his
hopes crushed, liecause lie wants the one great prin
ciple of personal courage to say, “here I am.** As for
John Tyler, 1 can only say, that we have made but
little progress as a republic if, after a career of more
than fifty years, we have descended from George
Washington as President to John Tyler. If we go
on in that ratio where will we be fifty years henceT”
Out of the numerous auditory who listened to those
public and eloquent remarks of Mr. Marshall, there
could not be one who for a moment doubted the hon
esty of the man. Wild and reckless as he may be,
and indeed as he acknowledged himself to be, there
gleams forth in all that lie says, the highest lustre of
a true chivalry, and the unquenchable fire, of a mind
the truest, the boldest, the clearest, in its reasonings.
It is plain that his spirit is too lofty and honest to fol
low the crooked ways of wily politicians.
“The reeil in storms may bow and quiver,
“Then rise again—the tree must shiver.”
Upon the subject of the finances, the President has
furnished the most satisfactory evidence, that there
was no occasion for calling an Extra Session, in May
last, to replenish the public Treasury, and that if the
extra session had not been called, there would.have I
been a balance of some two millions of dollars iu the I
Treasury, on the first Monday iu January next.
He makes the estimated receipts on the Treasury,
for the whole year, with the balance on hand, on the
first of January last, to be $13,397,512 80, and the
estimated disbursements for the same period, to a
mount to $32,025,070 80, leaving a deficit, on the
first of next January, of $627,557 90.
Of the National Debt of twelve millions, created at
the extra session, the sum of $5,432,726 88, has l>een
raised, which is included in the amount of receipts
into the Treasury, as above stated, and the question
arises as to the amount of expenditures .made at the
extra session, which inay he set down as nearly suffi
cient to {absorb this amount raised upon the twelve i
million loan; and selling off, one against the other,
and throwing back the proceeds of the public lands
into the Treasury, it follows, that if there had been no
extra session, thcie would have been no deficiency in
the Treasury, on the first of January next, because
(here would have been no expenditures during the
year to reader a public debt necessary, or to absorb
its avails, and tbe proceeds of the public lands would
not have been withdrawn from their proper channel.
It was the extra session which brought the Treasu
ry to its present condition, and which affords to the
tariff party a plea to increase our burdens.—Standard
of Union.
New Machinery for obtaining fresh
Water by Distillation.—A French paper men
tions the making of some interesting experiments at
the Jardin dm Plantes, by order of the Minister of the
Marine and the Colonies, for testing anew the merits
of the apparatus of Messrs. Fey re & Rocher, of
Nantes, for distilling sea water, which ha* been in
troduced into use on board the corvette, the Aube,
and on board twenty-seven merchant vessels. From
the results of these experiments it was satisfactorily
ascertained that the largest ships may be supplied
with fresh water, by the use of this apparatus.
The new Paper.—The first nuinlier of the “In
dependent,” the new' paper to lie published at Wash
ington, by Mr. Pleasants, late of the Richmond
Whig, is daily exacted. It is understood in the po

Antharcite Iron Cannon.—A large ctiiiioii
was recently cast at the foundry of Messrs, Fatsinger
and Salkeld, at Mauclt Chunk, Pa. which is said to
be as smooth and strong as if it had been cast of char
coal iron. It has been tested, says the Mauch Chunk
Courier, with a double charge of powde.1, and ever)
means to prove it effectually. We lielieve this is the
first cannon cast in the United States with Antharcite
Iron, and have no doubt but in u short time Anthar
cite will supersede cliarcoarl irou for almost every

The Cotiqtlclt nnJ possession of f n*’i:t by British
enterprise, after n vast expea liture of blood of trea
sure, opened a wide am! extensive field of employ
ment for British subject'.
The first expedition to India was undertaken in the
year 1601, uadar Copt. Lancaster, who returned to
England in 1603, after a successful voyage, with
valuable corgi*** of India produce. The East India
Company afterwards monopolized the trade of the
vast Indian Empire, great accessions having been
made to th«ir possessions, under the Governor
Generalships of Lord Clive, Warren Hastings, and
Lord Cornwallis.
Lord Cornwallis was appointed Governor General !
of India after the surrender ut York Town, that dis- !
aster to British arms not having lost him influence
at Court, nor materially impaired the strength of his
aristocratic connections. Warren Hastings as is
well known, was impeached in 17S8 for hit'll crimes
and misdemeanors committed during his administra
tion in India.
The East India Company, originally* incorporated
for purposes of trade, terminated its commercial
character in 1834. By the act of William the 4tli
for continuing its charter till 1834, its functions are
wholly political, and they arc to govern under the
supervision of the Board of Control, 100,000,001) of
British subjects. They have at their command an
army of 200,000 men, and an annual territorial
revenue of #0,000,000, which is equal to that of some
of the most powerful monarchies of Europe.
The progress of the Cotton culture in India, and
the steps now being taken for its improved and ex
tended cultivation in that great empire are calculated
to arrest the attention of the Cotton growing regions
of the South- The statauients on this subject in the
annexed extracts from foreign journals, contain grave
matter for the South.
[From ills Bombay Time*, June 23, 1841.]
Production of Cotton in India.—On examining into
the supplies of Cotton brought to this maikct during
the twelve months ending the 31st of May, we find
that the result is well calculated lo astonish those
who have not been marking the progressive increase
of ibis product, but lias been dwelling with fancied
security on the recollections of what used to constitute
a large supply for us, viz: 200 to 250,000 Inles. It
appears, then, that from the first of June 1840, to the
first of June 18 41, the imports of Cotton into Bombay
have amounted to 174,212,755 pounds; or on tlio
previous average, of 3^ cu t., to the bales, 473,606
bales, little short of half a million of screwed bales.
This is a larger quantity than America produced up
to the year 1826, and more than was consumed in
England during the same year. In 1825, the entire
product of the United States amounted to only 169,
806,000 pounds, though twelve years after it had
reached 44,214,537 pounds—Vi le McC’a Diet.
As a further encouragement to the cultivators, we
may state that the consumption of East India Cotton
in Great Britain has increased in u greater ratio than
that of any quality whatever. In 1816, at which pe
riod the average of American Upland was lS^d, and
Surat at 15jd, all the consumption of American was
1,036 hales, and East Indian 207 bales per week. In
1839, whan the average price of Upland was 7£ and
Surat at 5jd,the consumption of American was 15,
644 bales, and East Indian 2112 bales per week ; the
increase, in 23 years of the last mentioned, being in
the ratio of 1 to 18. In the same period, the con
sumption of Egyptian, Brazil, and West India varie
ties has not doubled.
I From the London Literary Gazette. Sept. 14, 1841.]
Indian Products and Manufactures.—
Co Aliened with this subject, we rejoice to see that
measures are being successfully taken to form a na
tional intercommunication of valuable products and
manufactures between England and her mighty east
ern empire. This lias been long and most strangely
neglected; and it would have been well worth while
to establish a board of commission, with government
influence and authority, ta direct and superintend so
important a concern. As it is, the stimulus appends
to have been given by the committee 011 trade, &c.
j emanating from the Boy a I Asiatic Society, whose
proceeding has had a most I1e11elici.nl effect both ut
home and in India. We now learn that experiments
on tin cultivation of rollon are promising the greatest
re-mik; nnd that other branches of industry are all
being!improved and promoted by European skill and
eneoirugement. 'Pile Himalayan fine has been accli
mate., and found extensively useful; anil the “pro
digious” lucerne, and other nutritious grasses, of
which travellers have spoken in such high terms of
pruisi, are also introduced w ith every prospect of
adding much to our agricultural prosperity. Teas,
coffees, silks, and hundreds of fruits, gums, dyes,
medcine.*, and other precious articles of commerce
reins in yet lo he cultivated, and iuterchunetd in abun
dance, to the incalculable advantage of both countries.
We have now in tho Mediterranean,” gays the
Globe, (of Paris) “ 13 sail of the line; six more have
! gone Loin Toulon to Cherbourg; 14 other armed ves
sels, irinc.ipally frigates, are at sea; and we have
| besides, all ready for sea, 20 corvettes of thirty to
1 sixteen guns, 32 brigs of twenty to ten guns, 30 ilolilla.
boats, 28 transports, and 30 war steamers.”

Extraordinary Phenomena.—We are not
much given to the marvellous, and wo will not be much
surprised if some of our readers doubt the truth of the
following, but we can assure them that it is true, ev
ery word of it. There is a Miss in this city, n resi
dent of an adjoining comity, about 13 years of age,
from whose thumb there has appeared, for some
weeks past, divers hairs, bristles, &c. tome of them
as long as twenty-six inches, and others shorter.
This was the story we heard a day or two since, and
we laughed at the wonderful credulity of our infor
mant. It is, however, true—for we have seen the
young lady and have witnessed the growth of hair.
There is nothing extraordinary in the appearance of
the thumb, am' she says the growing of the hair gives
her no uneasiness w hatever. The hair comes out of
the inner side of the thumb, sometimes from under the
nail, generally, however, from the ball. Some of the
hair is as soil as the hair of the head, and some as
tough as bristles, varying in color, sue and length.
The growth is very rapid, and when it is removed
from the thumb, it leaves no impression whatever in
the part from which it springs, we are informed by
Dr. Gibney, who resides in the same town with this
young lady, that on 8unriuy last thirty appeared dur
ing the day. A nmni>er of scientific gentlemen have
examined the thumb and the hair, but are all utterly
at a loss to account for the phenomena.—Lixington

ALABAMA, FOR SALE.—The subscriber,
administrator of the estate of William Smith, de
ceased, oilers for sale two large and valuable Planta
tions, on the A al uma river, about 12 miles above
Selina, und 23 miles below Montgomery. One of
them is in the county of Autauga, containing eigh
teen hundred acres,of which from seven to eight hun
dred acres are in cultivating, bountifully supplied
with water foi plantation purposes, and for stock, by
a never failing stream, running entirely through the
plantation. That portion of the tract which, is not
under cultivation, is well timbered and principally
cotton land, of the very best quality for the culture of
cotton nnd corn.
The other tract is situated in the county of Dallas,
in the bend of the Alabama river, generally known
by Durand’s Bend—containing about fourteen hun
dred acres, nine hundred of which are in cultivation. J
This tract is also well supplied with timber and wa
ter, and is of the best quality of coiton land. . . /
Both these plantations are bounded, and divided
from each other, by the Alabama liver; they are now
in a state ofhigli cultivation, with comfortable dwel
lings, gin-houses and other necessary bnildings on
each, lit for immediate use. The quality of the soil,
the easy access to market by the Alabama river,
the southern latitude, and the character of the popul
ation in the two counties of Dallas und Autauga, af
ford great inducements to capitalists desirous of en
gaging m the culture of the great staple of the south
The crops this year, it is supposed, will produce 450
to 500 bales of 500 poueds each, cultivated by sixty
three hands.
The stock of corn, fodder nnd oats, now on the
plantations, the hogs and cattle, bucksmitli's tools
and farming utensils, are aise offered lor sale. Pos
session given at the end of the year.
• Persons wishing to purchase, can apply to Mr. R.
H. Gaston, at the landing on the river, adjoining the
Autauga plantation, who will show the premises; or
to me at my residence in Huntsville during the sum- ^
mer, nnd at New Orleans during the winter. The
terms, for either or both of the plantations, will bo
quiurfadvantageous. MEREDITH CALIIOUN.
