fury, and keeping the engine in violent action the vessel, one of the fleetest that had ever been built, flew through the water with incred ible speed. All the passengers were gathered to the bow, the rapid flight of the vessel keep jnjr that part clear of the flames, while it car ried the fire, flames, and smoke, backward to the quarter deck, where' the pilot stood like a martyr to the stake. Everything possible was done by the master and crew to keep the place on which he stood deluded with water, but this became every moment more difficult and hopeless, for, in spite of all that could be done, the flames seized the cabin under him, and his feet were literally roasted on the deck. Still he never flinched,' for, had he done so, all might have perished. At intervals the mo tion of the wind threw aside the intervening mass of flame and smoke for a moment, and then might be heard exclamations of hope and gratitude, as the multitude on the bow got a glimpse of the brave man, standing calm and fixed on his dreadful watch. "By this time the vessel was within stone- cast of the Galloway coast, girded, as it i with perpendicular masses of rock, but every corner of which the pilot was acquainted with, and this enabled him to run her into an open space, and alongside a lede of rock upon which every person got safe on shore, all unscathed except the solf-devoted one to whom they owed their lives." " The foregoing particulars have been all ascertained to be true. Poor Maxwell, how ever, was so injured, arc! his constitution so shattered by his exeitions and sufferings on that awful occasion, that he has never been the same man since. For several years sub sequent to this occurrence, he was employed as a pilot by one of the most respectable steam companies on the Clyde, but for a long time he has not been able to do a hand's turn. He is now completely bed-ridden (in fact, in a dying state,) and laboring under severe rheumatism of the breast and legs from the effects of the ire. He has a wife and six children, the eldest only 14 years of age, and all are completely destitute." Such an act is one of the noblest instances of calm, deliberative courage, and many a boasting battle-field hero would have faltered and utterly shrunk away from the lofty, self sacrificing purpose of the Clydesdale Pilot.

Journal of Commerce. Suing an Editor. Somebody has sued editor of the New York Commercial Adverti ser, for a libeJ, laying the damages at one hun dred thousand dollars. It was well remarked by an old Philadelphia merchant, who heard some cotemporary lauded for his wealth, that " we do not know folks will cut up until they are dead." We therefore say nothing con cerning the living editors ; but if any body will find graves of three editors made rich by the profession, we will weed the third grave clean with our teeth." One hundred thousand dollars for an editor to pay ! ! ! Why, all the editors in the world scarcely raise the amount. A hundred thousand dollars would really bo a tolerably large sum for an opera dancer to pay, without much trouble. United Stales Gazette. THE NORTH CAlROJLiNIA-FT. Savon n ak Cleorsruin. Advertising. One of our merchants, who has tried hard to get along and save the expense of advertis ing, in conversation with ifs a few davs ago, told us that he had learned something in that way and should not a gain show himself a " penny wise and pound foolish." lie said that since he had begun to advertise in all the papers, his business had not merely doubled and tripled but had increased ten fold. Many of our "old fashioned merchants, who have been afraid of advertiseing, have had to give way to the new and more enterprising traders and if some of the former class have main tained their gr ii'id against the latter it has been so only under circumstances not com mon to the generality of merchants. A merchant and manufacturer told us some time s,inee that he bad sold goods enough in one year to a singlo customer whom ho knew to hare been drawn to his store by an adver tisement, to pay, from the profits cf those goods, all his advertising expenses for that year. A firm ot lumber merchants in this city not long since sold between five mui six hundred dollars woith of lumber to a poison from the country ; when the bargain had been made, the purchaser renin. ked that he was induced to call on them (the sellers) from seeing their advertisement in the Palladium and thereupon they sent us word to set them down thenceforth as yearly advertisers. If customers were generally in the habit of saying to the merchant, " I see you advertise such ami siwh articles and wish to look at them " all doubts of the advantage of liberal advertising would soon vanish. New Haven Pal. The Island of Cuba. The following paragraph we copy from the New Oi leans Bulletin of the 5th iust. We have had repeated hints of the design of Great Britain of getting possession of the Island of Cuba. We have no douht that our govern ment keeps a watchful eye on the movements of the British government respecting that im portant I.dand. The moment that the island changes its masters, the United States will be placed in an unsafe and dangerous position. This government, without resorting to war, may, by mutual concessions, and compromise, settle all existing difficulties respecting the north-eastern boundary, the burning of the Caroline, and even the McLeod case ; but war must be waged should Great Britain at tempt to get possession of Cuba. Augusta Constitutionalist. From the BuIIrtin. Island of Cuba. commercial gentleman who has spCnt some weeks in Havana, in forms his correspondent in this city, that he has become satisfied, from information he has obtained in the best quarters, that England is negotiating with Spain for a cession of Cuba. Some of the steps he has learned the British government have taken iu the matter he states thus: "The English demand the liberation of all the negroes introduced here since the treaty of 1S20, as being called for by the spirit of that document. The govomment at Mad rid referred the question to the Governor here, who called a junto of rich people they an swered (with one exception) we cannot allow it. Now, England has said it must be done; if the Regent of Spain says to Cuba, do it, and the people of Cuba persist in saying no what will be the result? Submission, to such a demand seems to me to be out of the ques tion. A proud Spaniard asked me the other day if I thought that the United States would accept of the Island? P answered, I believe the Isftmd would be received, but you must first achieve your own independencethen she will acknowledge you, and take you in as a partner! But the grand question is, will Uucle Sam allow Bully Bull to take posses sion here, even if old Spain consents? If he does, adieu to peace our southern institu tions will at least be jeoparded, and a valua ble trade close against us." Cold comfort at home. Ex-Secretary Solitude Ewing claimed sympathy from the people on resigning, by complaining that the President treated him with neglect in not con sulting him on the veto. The people of Fair field have dealt still more hardly by him. They have clapped a thousand vetoes on him immediately on his arrival at home. They met hirri with one thousand majority at the polls, in the face of his protest against the Bank veto. His reception at Hocking, the scene of his land speculations, was something better. There he was met by only three hun dred and ninety-three vetoes! Globe. Tennessee. The legislature met on 4th inst., Mr White, the democratic candidate, was elected speaker of the senate. The house adjourned without going iuto an elec tion to allow one absent member to come in so close we presume is the vote in that body. Exclusive if tiiey could. The Whigs don't appear to relish the fact that Mr Blair, editor of the Globe, was at the ball given to the Prince de Joinville, by the President. T r: : n e s s i; t: T jEg i s l a t u j:e.

Mr Clay, at the extra session, insisted that two-thirds ofthe people demanded a National Dank. He denounced the veto on the in stitution which he and his followers in Con gress prepared as, he said, in compliance with the will of their " agonized " constitu ents, as downwnght hostility against public opinion. He said if Mr Tyler's conscience w ould no permit him to sign a Bank charter, which the Representatives in Congress de manded, in compliance with the wishes of their constituents, making a vast majority of the American people, he should have adopted the alternative of permitting the bill to become a law by default, or, by resigning, have given a new President to sanction it. What will Mr Clay now say to Mr Berrien, Mr Kenne dy, and other Representatives who made the issue of Bank or no Bank in their late ad dress to their constituents, which has been re plied to by overwhelming majorities, renounc ing a Bank. Will Mr Clay tell his Georgia friends iu Congress to resign if they cannot turn Democrats and disclaim his measures? Will he tell his Indiana, his Maine, his Pennsylvania, his Ohio, his New Jersey coad jutors, in all of which States the popular ma jorities have condemned the issues ofthe ex tra session to resign, or bend their consci ences to the Democratic creed? Wo think not. Mr Clay will tell them to hold fast to him, and give up their constituents. Globe. From the Kcw York Evening Pos A grave charge is brought against the De mocratic party by the National Intelligencer. Whenever that party has the misfortune to ob tain the ascendency, it immediately becomes diflicult to pass the notes of broken banks; the people grow hard to be humbugged, and man ifest a most unreasonable preference for specie and notes of par value. Hear the complaint of the Intelligencer, as contained in the se cond and last paragraph of its leading article of yesterday morning. ""It is remarkable what depression of the business pursuits ofthe country, the curren cy, monetary exchanges of trade, &c. every where attends the success of that party which had possession of the Government during the last twelve years, and under whose as cendency the prosperity of the couutry was checked and almost ruined. In Georgia, for instance, we see it stated in the Augusta Chronicle, that, no sooner was it ascertained that tl-3 Eoco Foco candidate was elected Governor, and the same party had a majority in the Legislature, than such was the effect upon the currency as to make it impossible to sell bills of Hie Central Bank at any discount and no one would uudertake to say whal the state bonds were worth, such was the antici pated depreciation." When the police of a city is remarkably vigilant, rogues cry "hard times," and with good reason. Since the new police has been introduced into London, the meetings of the thieves, we understand, have been remarka bly melancholy ; there is much talk of modern degeneiacy and the stagnation of business; and the disconsolate sharpey, with a deep drawn sigh and a significant shake of the head, observes to his compauion, that he fears the world will never again see the good times it has seen. What must be the condition of that com munity in which the notes of an insolvent bank, like the Central Bank of Georgia, "will not," to use the words of the National Intelligencer, sell at any discount?" De plorable enough, to be sure. Such a com munity can neither be the swindler's delight, nor the speculator's Paradise. Business pursuits," as the Intelligencer . calls them, must languish for want of gulls and dupes to work upon ; the "currency" must be lamenta bly bad, inasmuch as it must consist of specie or its equivalent, which are notoriously the worst currency in the world, and the " mone tary exchanges" must be in a most alarming depression when men will not, for the tempta tion of any discount, exchange gold and sil ver for the notes of a corporation which refu ses payment. In such a country, .how can the credit system be carried to its " maturity and -perfection?" People, when they make promises, will be required to perform them ; when they set their signature to notes, they will be expected to pay them; and few there are who have not learned, by experience, how inconvenient it is to do this. When you hamper the large and liberal enterprise of the bankers and traders by such scurvy restraints, you check, if not ruin, what the Intelligencer calls "prosperity of the nation." Labor Saving Machine. The Banjor Whig; says : "A Yankee in Boston has set up a one horse thrasing machine for the con venience of parents and guardians having un ruly boys. He'll lick an urchin like thunder for four-pence. Small lickings done for two cents only, and the most entire satisfaction warranted." Somebody will" be starting a penny opposition, and "lick" all creation. A civs hy flails. Commonwealth vs. Semmes. Senimcs was indicted for the murder of Professor Davis. The prisoner in this cauo who had been liberated on his giving bail in the sum of $25,000, failing to appear, in discharge of his recognizance, at the present term of the Superior Court of Albermarle now in -session, his default was entered on record and a rule enteied against him and the securities retur nable at the next term to show cause why the recognizance of bail should not be-persecuted to a judgment. Char. Adv. Fever in New Orleans. The deaths in New Orleans, during the 7ih, Sth, and Olh inst., amounted to 89 of these 59 were by the yellow fever; during the week ending on the 9th, there were, 1-4 deaths ty yellow fever. The papers say the fever was increas ing in malignity, and advised strangers and absentees to stay away. The acquittal of McLeod has given some spring to business in New York. " Most of the vessels, and particularly the jackets, were dressed on Thursday, with colors flying," on the occasion. Wheat was selling on the Mississippi, at Quincy, 111., on. the 1st inst. at 56 cts. a bushel. "Belleville." a beautiful seat near Rich mond, Ya., owned by Mrs. Mayo, the widow of Col. John Mayo, and mother-in-law of Gen Winfield Scott, was destroyed by fire on Fri day night last, with most of its contents. The fire is supposed to have been the work of incendiaries. Runaway Slaves. The Montreal Cou rier states that the number of runaway slaves from the Southern States, who have escaped into Canada, is about 20,000. An attempt, it is said, has been made to induce them to emigrate to Jamaica. Recovering. The Baltimore Clipper says, the health of Mr Paulding, late Secretary ofthe Navy, is improving and his recovery is anticipated to be complete in a very short time. 3" About 70 Mormons recently passed through Montreal, towards Nauvoo, Illinois. They were from Gloucester, England. J. Washington Tyson has been appointed Commissary General for the army supply at Philadelphia, iu place of Gen. Cailender Ir vine, deceased. Slave Insurrection. It is stated in the Savannah Republican that a plan was recent ly laid iu South Carolina, near Purysburg, among a parcel of negroes, to murder their masters. It was, however, discovered, and nine of the principle ones arrested, lour of whom it was thought would be hung. Ball. Sun. The Professions. It is calculated that there are in the United States 14,01-2 Law yers, 14,CS0 Clergymen, and i 0,322 Physicians. More Defaulting. The New York Sun of Saturday, says : " We are pained to learn that a report prevailed last evening, touching the financial course of a prominent officer of the Commercial Bank, and one who had hitherto been considered above suspiciou or reproach. He is said to be a defaulter to a large amount." Money is said to be very plenty in New York, notwithstanding that the Banks pay specie. Suspensions seem in the end to make money scarcer than it would if specie payments were adhered to, for they produce a want ot confidence aud check importations of specie from other parts, and increase of paper brings no relief, for it falls in value in proportion to its abundance, and capital is no plentier than it was before. The trial of John C. Colt, for the. murder of Mr Adams, in New York, it is supposed would have commenced of Mouday last, but a motiou to postpone, made by his counsel, was successful, aud the trial was set down for Monday, the 25lh inst. Sun. llayti. Accounts from Jamaica state that it is pro bable a revolution will soon take place with a view to overthrow the despotism which exists under President Boyer of Hayti. A gentleman who has visited the latter is land informs us that the government, though nominally a republic, is in reality military and despotic. There is a senate chosen for six years, we think, by general suffrage. But the people must choose the Senators out of a list of dou ble the number, which list is selected by the President who holds his own office for life. Notwithstanding this advantage possessed by the President, the Senate has shown a somewhat refractory disposition towards him, in which feeling a great majority ofthe people participate. President Boyer has become enormously wealthy, by his salary his trade and his exer tions. His chief adviser is lnginae, Secre tary of State, who came near being assassinat ed some three years since. Boyer and Ingi nae are both mulattocs, as are a majority of the public officers, while a majority ofthe peo ple are blacks The blacks are the most dis contented with the government. When In ginae appears on horseback, in public, he has two black men accompanying him one on each side, either so as to appear to favor the blacks with his confidence, or so as to deter that class from shooting at him lest thev should kill one of their own complexion, instead of the object of their hate. Daring Murder. It becomes our duty to add to the " Horrid Murders," now going the rounds of the papers, another one com mitted within the borders of our own peaceful county. On Friday night last, about 8 o' clock, Richard Bullock, Esq., one of the Magistrates of this county, was shot and in stantly killed, in his own house. His daugh ter and son-in-law who reside at Chapel Hill were then on a visit at his house, and while he was standing near the piano, on which his daughter was playing, he was fired at through the window. It is supposed that the mouth of the gun could not have been more than two or three feet from his body, as all the shot entered his back within a small space of each other. He died in a few seconds after wards. A Coroner's inquest was held over the body next day, and a verdict of ''Mur dered by an unknown hand " returned. Sus picion as yet rests on no one. IVarrington Reporter. uCol. Monroe Edwards, the great forger, is now snugly lodged in New York. He ap pears to have gone his length, and has now a very certain prospect of a long job of stone cutting before him. It seems that, while re cently in KnglanJ, he did Eur I Spencer out of 01200 by means of a forged letter of in troduction purporting to be from Mr Webster. An Attempt at Suicide. A young girl agecl 16, named Mary Wright, whose mother is intemperate and unfeeling, attemp ted on Tuesday last, to commit suicide by drowning herself in the Hudson. She was rescued from the water by a humane person, name unknown. G-Silk continues to be cultivated with success, by a number of farmers and others iu Massachusetts. The Steamship Caledonia, Capt. McKel lar, which left Boston on Saturday, 2d inst., at 2 ox-lock, P. M., arrived at Halifax at G 3-4 o'clock P. M., on the 7th, after a most tremendous rough passage, with some damage to the paddle boxes, and loss of her life boat. The third officer and carpenter had their legs broken, and nine seamen were badly injured. She lay to fifty-two hours. It was doubtful whether the third officer would survive his wounds. The Caledonia's arrival at Ifalifax was looked for with great anxiety, and when she was announced below crowds of people covered the wharf to inquire into the cause of her delay, The passengers never expected to see Halifax, nor any other port. The number of deaths from Yellow Fever in New Orleans on the 6th, was 15. Fatal Accident. We regret to learn that Mr William Smith, of this county, met with an accident on Thursday last week, which caused his death on Saturday. He was carrying a stick of timber with several others, and gave the word to throw, which was doue by the others, but he stumbling, the stick fell across him, crushed him in such a manner as to occasion his death. The de ceased was in the prime of life, was a useful member of society, and his death is much la mented. He has left a wife and three or four small children to mourn their sudden and dis tressing bereavement. Tarborouzrh Press. Astounding Disclosure.

Dear Sir A party of from twelve to twen ty Indians, some ten days siuce, passed near the encampment of Captain'Fulton, 2d Dra goons, who was iu charge of a train of wag ons, his company's baggage, &c, and attack ed the captain's camp about 7 o'clock in the evening, tiring a volley and making a rush into the encampment. The surprise was complete, so far as astonishment was concern ed, for the soldiers felt perfect security, no Indians ever having attacked a party of sol diers for a long time since. - Capt. Fulton soon rallied his men, aud with the assistance of Assistant Surgeon Hammond, who was with him, returned the varmints'- fire and charged them with great braverv and determi nation. His course appeared to be as unex pected to the Indians, as their fire was in the first place to the soldiers. The Indians re treated and gave Capt. Fulton lime to break open an arm chest and arm the teamsters with caibiues. He hardly did this, before the Indians fired a vollay from the other side of his camp, and rushed m, even to his wagous. The captain faced his men about, and this time gave them a quietus, for the teamsters being armed with a pistol and carbine gave good assistance ; and drove the infernal ras cals out of sight and hearing for that night. There was one soldier wounded by the In dians, and several horses. The News from Tampa Bay is not . en couraging as all expected. Hospitarki's peo ple have not all come in, to the number pro mised nor probably will surrender at all. There is at that post about 300 Indians, in cluding 90 warriors. It is believed they will be shipped in a few days fo the West. Secrets of Whig Legislation. It is said, about the time John M. Botts wrote his famous letter to the coffee-house at Rich mond, he made a bet of 15,000 that he would "head Capt. Tyler ;" that is, frame some measure that would ruin him with the country, whether he signed or vetoed it. No wonder he abused the President. JeJJ"' Whigs and Abolitionists. A friend in forms us that at least three of the individuals who have signed the proceedings of Mr Clay's anti-Tyler Caucus, are men icho have avowed themselves m Javor of abolishing slavery in the District of Columbia, and stopping the slave trade between the Stales. He is under the impression that six of those individuals, have under their own signatures, avowed such sentiments, but is positive as to three of them. We publish all the names. J.
