Includino- Cape ijalnias, Liberia has a popu lation of two thousand five hundred colonists, all told. The town and settlements of Mills bur, Caldwell, and New Georgia, Monrovia, Marshall, Edina, Bassa Cove, Be.xley, and Sinou; the wholft having about two thousand colonist inhabitants, and the Maryland Colo ny at Cape lalmas, with five hundred set tlers. At and in the vicinity of those towns, the various christian denominations spend annu ally not less ihau sixty thousand dollars iu missionary operations; supporting twenty or more foreign missionaries, and a great num ber of colonists as preachers, teachers, and as sistants. The education of youth, is princi pally if not wholly in the hands of the mis sionary societies, as also the supplying the des titute and needy. Methodist E. Mission. The mission ary society of the Methodist Episcopal Church, has mission houses, school houses, and church es in nearly every town in the Colonies, aud several houses and churches in native towns: in all twelve or thirteen churches, five school houses, eight mission houses, several rented dwellings and school rooms, eleven schools, one seminary and twenty or more persons, the most of whom are heads of families, in its employ. Membership, nearly one thousand. Baptist Church. The Missionaries of the Baptist denomination have concentrated their efforts in and around Edina, where they have a fair, membership, mission houses,' schools aud a press for publishing the Scrip tures in the Bassa language, which they have already translated. They have a flourishing school of native youths. The Baptists have a church at Millsburgh, Caldwell, New Georgia, Monrovia, Edina, Bassa Cove, a missionary at Bexley, and we think a small society at Cape Palmas. The Baptist churches above named, except at Edina, and Bassa Cove, support themselves with a praiseworthy zeaL without foreign aid. Membership, three hundred. Presbyterian Mission. The Presbyte rians have a flourishing mission at Fair Hope, Cape Palmas, under the superintendence of the Kev. J. Leighton Wilson. The mission buildings at Fair Hope, include dwelliugs, school houses, churches and other houses for the press, resideuce of the pupils, &c. At that place there is a school with nearly thirty boys aud twenty girls, all natives; many of whom have made great proficiency, and a num ber have &om time to time left the establish ment with a fair education. Mr Wilson with the assistance of the Protestant Episcopal mis sionaries, has published several elementary school books, also a dictionary, and is now engaged getting a part of the Holy Scriptures through the press; all the above having been translated into the Grey bo language. They have mission stations at the native towns, Rocktown and Fishtoivrf, and prospering schools at each. These stations are near Cup-3 Palmas. The Presbyterians have a church at Mon rovia, Edina and Fair Hope: the two former supported by colonists. Membership, about fifty. Protestant Episcopal Mission. This mission is located at Mount Vaughaii, Cape Pol mas, and having two native stations at some distance, called - Graway, aud Cavally. The mission buildings are said to be (for we" have never visited Cape Palmas) commodi ous aud elegant. They are comprised iu dwellings, church, school houses, &c. &c The schools at Mount Yaughan, Cavally, and Graway, are flourishing. The mission gene rally is prosperous and 'greatly prized by the citizens. The Episcopalians have no churches or schools in the colony except those above men tioned. Their operations are quite exten sive,and all concentrated around Cape Palmas. Membership not known say thirty. JLfrictfs Luminary. The Niger Expedition. The object of the expedition is to proceed up the Niger, with a view to obtain accurate geographical knowledge and surveys, and to form treaties with the various chiefs in its route, for the suppression of the traffic in slaves, & the establishment of a legitimate commerce. The immediate objects of the Society are, 1st, to make the Africans acquainted with the inexhaustible riches of their own soil, and to sedulously divert their attention to its cultiva tion, on a system of free labor. To convince them, moveover, of the uumeasurable superi ority of agriculture and innocent commerce, even in point of profit over the slave trade, which excludes them. 2. To instruct the natives in agriculture and practical science, by cultivating small portions of land as models fcr their imitation, to distribute agricultural implements, seeds, plants, &c, to introduce local and other im provements, aud to suggest and facilitate the means of beneficially exchanging the produce of Africa for the manufactures of Europe. , 3. To examine the principal languages of Africa, and reduce them, when possible, to a written form. 4. To investigate the diseases of the cli mate, and loeal peculiarities of Africa, for the benefit as well of natives as of foreign resi dents and travellers, to send out medicines and practitioners, and thus to separate , the practice of medicine from the horrid supersti tions now connected with it. 5. To co-operate by every means in its power with the Government expedition to the Niger, to report the progress, assist its opera tions, calculate the valuable information it may communicate, and generally to keep a!ive the interest of Great Britain in the suppres sion of the slave trade, and the welfare of Af rica. Liberia Herald. Every one who has written a paragraph for publication is aware that it is exceedingly difficult to come the sentimental. " He of she who attempts it runs altogether too many risks. On oue hand, there is danger that he or she may be drawn into the whirlpool of silliness; on the other, he or she may go to' pieces upon the rock of stupidity, it is so very difficult to preseive a happy medium. See how successful the editor of the Buffalo Free Press has been in escaping both Scylla and Charibdis. We have rarely seen a purer specimen of sentimentalism: "The wheels of time go swiftly round, arcd the way the dirt flies is a caution. Another summer is gone dog days are nearly used up, and ere long the bleak winds will,, be whistling at our windows. Harvest hath passed, and now is seed time: the late rains are replenishing the famished eaith, and punkius are in excellent order. We love a big, yellow,- wide-ribbed clever-looking pump kin !

A convict in a bad box. A desperado named James C. Cole, who had before graduated in the state prison, was on the 3d of August, 1S40 sentenced to the state prison for 15 years, for an aggravated case of robbery in the 1st degree, (called high way robbery) in presenting a loaded pistol to the breast of 9 broker in Greenwich street, and crying out "your money or your life." In the state prison he was employed in box making, and planed off and fitted up an old sugar box, driving nails through the edge of the top and breaking off the points and also putting wooden buttons under the lid so as to turn into small furrows in the sides and made small holes to let in the air. Having secured the aid of two convicts, on Friday after dinner he marked the box, directing it to J. Line, corner of Pike and Madison streets, and getting into it and doubling himself Up, secured the lid, and was carried to the wharf to be put on board the sloop Fanny, for New York, the convicts by mistake putting the box on the end with his head downwards. In this state he continued for half an hour, when he was canied on board the sloop and she set sail with Mr Lent, one of :iie prison keepers, on board, who knew nothing of the convict in the box. The sloop, when a few miles on her voyage, was injured iu her sails by a squall, aud had to putback to Sing Sing lo rent, wnere inc Keeper leu ner, ana me re pairs completed, the sloop resumed her voy age towards the cilv. On the passage, the box was placed iu the cabin near the stove, aud used as a seat by those on board, and became so tremendously hot that Cole fainted twice with the heat and confined air, and came near suffocating. Meanwhile, the keeper, who lauded from the sloop at Sing -Sing, hearing of the escape of Cede, aud having seen the box on board, right ly supposed he bad stowed himself in it, aud taking the first steamboat, arrived in the city before the sloop, which he boarded as soon as it touched the wharf, and knocking off the lid of the box, there found Cole, doubled up, nearly dead, and so stiffened by his position that when hauled out he was unable to stand lie was carried to the City prison, aud there locked up until Saturday afternoon, when he was put on board a steamer iu irons, and ta ken by the keeper back to Sing Sing, to serve out the remaining long years of his term of imprisonment, and to taste the bitterness of a terrible flagellatiou for his unsuccessful attempt to escape. .V.

It is the current, and it is difficult to doubt that it is the correct, impression that the elec tions in many of the States last fall Were' ma terially affected by extensive' pipe laying frauds on the part of our opponents. It is firmly believed that in a number of instances the hard cider victories were achieved solely by such base means, and many are satisfied that the election of Qen. Harrison was se cured by this species of treason to the catrsef of republicanism. It is now evident that a flood of light is likely to be poured upon the subject: The Glentworth exposures in re ference to-previous elections, are known to the people, and have satisfied them as to' tho nature of the enemy - they have to deal with, but more is coming which bears directly on the point at issue. It was positively charged at the time that most atrocious frauds were committed in the west, and the Cincinnati Enquirer, in speaking of a late democratic meeting in that city has the foHoVving impor tant testimony :' , "Mr Wilkins, of Butler county was the principal speaker and his developemehts of the system of pipe laying and fraud, by which the Democracy of this county were defeated, were listened to with great attention. Of the " colonizing " in this county, from the south ern portiou of Warren, Mr W. said ho spoke upon the information of ethers, in which' ike most implicit confidence might be placed. Of the same system in Butler, carried into effect to defeat Air Weller, he spoke from his own personal knowledge.' Mr Wilkins gave this fraud upou the elective franchise, and the deceptions practised by the federal leaders upon the people, in relation to measures of great national policy, a his reasons for de serting the federalists, and joining in rho sup port of democracy. They form the justifica tion of hundreds, who are adopting the same course. Mr Wilkins was" warmly applauded during tho course,- and at the close of his re marks." On this the Ohio- Slatesfrnalr remarks "Mr Wilkins was an active committee man of Butler county, is a lawyer of leading talents, and his statements are worthy of alt confidence. " Awhig who took an active part in these elections, said iu this city, that he knew of an arrangement to make a difference ol seven hundred votes in Hamilton county, and that Dr. Duncan was as fairly elected to Congress as ever any one could be. The fact is, we have never doubted that the Democrats of Ohio were defrauded out of the election last fall, by the most monstrous system of frautT and villany ever concocted by the most aban doned race of men on earth. " A whig of this city says he knows of pipe-laying from this county rate Pickaway last year, and hints pretty strongly that he could tell of worse acts than that. Is it any wonder, then, that thousand of whigs, on sober reflection, are deserting such a party aud uniting with us, to save our histitutkms from ruin and disgrace. Pennsylcanian. Cost of a Whig President for one year. Three month's salary was drawn by Genl. Harrison as soon as he entered upou the du ties of his office, $6,250 Besides which he ree'da years salary, 25,000 His funeral expenses' amounted to 3,0S3 The ajrpropriatiou" for new furniture 6,000 Making the neat lillle sum of $40,333 This is the sum expended on Harrison for one month1 services as President. f We add to it, Tyler's salary for 11 months, viz. $22, 916 53, the cost to the country of the first year of a Whig President amounts to the enor mous sum" of SIXTY-THREE THOU SAND TWO HUNDRED AND FIFTY FOUR DOLLARS AND SEVENY-TWO CENTS! This is economy 'with ven geance! Tennessee Sentinel. The Wbigs seem to be puzzling themselves with attempts to define " Webster's position," Clay's position," and their own " position." This remines us of a dialogue between the captain and mate of a pinky, when they were beating about in the bay in a thick fog, and fearful of goiug ashore.
