We have received from the publishers, Messrs Swaim &. Sherwood of Greensboro, a copy of the Address delivered before the two literary socie ties of Davidson College at the last commence ment, by Ralph Gorrell, Esq. Seldom have we perused a college commencement address with more satisfaction than we have this. Without making invidious comparisons between it ind other recent productions called forth on similar I occasions, we aceord to Mr Gorrell the merit of having produced an instructive, entertaining and gracefully written oration. Its theme is the in fluence of educated men on society. In the following passage the effects of educa tion and training in preparing the mind for the conflicts of life are admirably illustrated: " In the l:ite bril iant war with Mexico, con ducted with such consummate skill and bravery, and which from the smallest guerilla fiht to the storming of the strongest fortresses of the en emy, was not attended with a single reverse ; a war which has shed such lustre upon American arms; we are led to believe that the success and triumph which crowned every battle field, was mainly owing to the high military educa tion and discipline of the oflicers who led the invincible regiments of our country. It is true, the r nk and tile of the army were brave and de voted, but such was their inferiority in num bers, that their courage would have proved a snare, unless eveiv march had been guided with skill, and every combat conducted with the high est order of military sagacitj'. If in the marches, the encampments, and the conflicts of civil life, our countrymen could be led with the same skill in awakening their sleep ing energies and conducting their labors, and inspired with the s.me confidence, we might look fr victories equally as brilliant, and far more beneficial, than those which crowned our arnres in the munt.ii.i gorges and fortified cities of Mexico." We commend to the attentive consideration of our agricultural readers the following para graph. We think that older heads than the re cent graduates of Davidson may profit by the instruction it conveys. Man, though a reasoning animal, is also a creature of habit, and generally, more strongly under the influence of the latter than the former moving principle: and as the fowls of the air of every wing build habitations in the same way they did in all past time, so we may readily sup pose the' will continue to do so for all ages to come, because t hey are governed solely by in stinct, or a faculty of imitation. And so will it be with man whilst he sutlers himself to he governed hy the force of habit, instead of t he force f rensun fty the use of" the latter he learns wisdom by experience, and daily adds to tht treasures of his knowledge Under the in fluence of the other, he remains stationary, re peating old blunders, copying past errors, en during again and again the same grievances, and making hi blunders and his errors hereditary bv handing them down ;s heirlooms to his chil dren. The great misfortune attending our agri- I culture is, that the masses engaged in it, though owning the soil they cultivate, make their occn- j pntion the subject of neither thought, study nor reading ; the advantages of a systematic employ ment of t ime are lost, all the operations of t he farm are performed with a kind of stereotype routine, admitting of little variation or improve ment. The mo.lesof cultivation introduced hy 1 our fithers upon a rich and virgin soil, and simi ljr agricultural implements, though unfit for the same soil, scoured, exhausted, and impoverished as a large portion of our State now is, is still pursued with iindeviuting fidelity, though the rewards of labor are denied and sterility and barrenness, like an invading foe, are making yearly advances, and threatening a complete conquest of the soil which the cultivate. In vain knowledge unfurl to them her ample page, rich with the experience and wisdom of the past; they shut their eves upon the light kindly offered to guide them to prosperity. In vain the agricultural press weekly and monthly oilers to pour its treasures at. their feet; most of them have strong prejudices ag-unst what is called 'book farming," and look upon money spent for information as wasted. It is a matter of" comfort that this sad state of tilings is not universal, and that this gloomy picture is relieved in every county by well-cultivated firms, under the management of men of education, and others, whose vigorous intellects have broken the shack les of habit, and who are reaping the rewards of their enlightened policy, and vetting a noble example for the imitation of their countrymen." The address as a whole will we think compare favorably with the majority of similar produc tions. LATER FROM EUROPE. T U-graptaed for the Charleston Courier. The United St.ites Mail steamship Franklin from Havre via Southampton, arrived at New York on Sunday. She lett Havre on the 23d ult. Since the departure of the Europa, on the ISth ult., Cotton in Liverpool had been depressed, and prices in favor of buyers in consequence ot holders continuing to press on the market. On the 20th ult., five thousand bales were sold, of which exporters took one thousand. There was no demand by speculators. On the twenty first ult., the sales only reached four thousand bales. Trade in the manufacturing districts was dull, and prices were declining. Eschsd. Kossuth had not arrived at South ampton when the Franklin left that port. Pub lic enthusiasm in regard to him was cooling off". It is asserted that he will not, and never intend ed to come to the United States on board the Mis sissippi. He manifests a determination to revo lutionize Hungary, and should he at a future .day visit America, it will be only for the purpose ,of raising funds for that object. Advices re- cei4'-ed in London state that the British Troops fcad -experienced another severe repulse at the Cape iof Good Hope, and that ten thousand more Slave been asked for. Great excitement was pre valent relative to the recent discovery of Gold in Australia- The U. S. Steamship Baltic had larrkv-e a Liverpool. FjEf.K. The French cabinet had undergone no change. Th country was quiet. HAwsyj. I i believed that King Earnest is THE NEW CONSTITUTION OF VIRGINIA. At the recent election for members of Con gress in Virginia, the question of the acceptance or rejection of the new Constitution proposed by the Convention which assembled at Richmond in October 1850, was submitted to the people. They have decided by overwhelming majorities in its favor, and on the 2d Monday in December ensuing it becomes the law of the State. Thus will be consummated a magnificent exhibition of the practical workings of the principle of the Sovereignty of the People. The history of the Anglo-Saxon race is a history of the progress of human liberty. The first blow in that cause was struck at Running Mea d more than six cen turies ago, when the Barons of the English Realm wrung from King John the Magna Charta the great charter of English liberty. And ever since the Anglo Saxon mind hss been struggling with the trammels of monarchical and aristocratic in stitutions. In Dast uses it was found that the stubborn fabric of the British Constitution, in volving a combination ot the rich, the noble, and the kingly, to keep the people in subjection to a system of government in which they had no agency, opposed a barrier to the progress of free I principles which would be insurmountable for I many generations. The Genius of Liberty began I to look elsewhere for a field on which to fight j its battles. The discovery of America a short j time previous afforded an asylum, though not a ' very inviting one, to those bold champions who ! chose religious and civil liberty in a " howling wilderness" in preference to ease and comfort in a land of tyranny. The landing of the Pilgrim Fathers on Plymouth Rock in the year 1G20 was indeed an epoch in the history of human free dom. From that period up to the present the principle of the political equality of all men has been undergoing a rapid developement. In the old Constitutions of the different States we find manyol the land m irks of aristocracy, indicating society to be in a state of transition from the condition of allegiance to the "King, Lords and Commons," to that of perfect political freedom and equality. This is not to be wondered at. A feeling of reverence for the past is inherent in the constitution of man. Political changes are therefore gradual. But as men acquire more experience of the benefits of democratic institu tions they exhibit less timidity in making those changes in their organic law by which these benefits are the better to be secured. Hence those numerous amendments which have been made to the constitutions of the different States of the Union. These remarks are made with reference more particularly to that article of the new Constitu tion of Virginia by w hich Free and Equal Suf frage is guarantied to every citizen. The fol lowing is the clause in reference to the qualifi cation of voters : "Every white male citizen of the Common wealth, of the age of 21 years, who has been a resident of t he State for two years, and of the county, citv or town where he offers to vote for twelve months next preceding an election, and no other person, shall be qualified to vote for members of the General Assembly and all officers elective by the people." By the old Constitution, a man to be a voter must have been a freeholder or housekeeper. We think experience will realize in the Old Dominion that the people generally, without re ference to the accidents of fortune, are as capa ble of self-government as the class of fieehold- ers. fhe following is an abstract of tne other ( important provisions of the new Constitution: The House of Delegates is to consist of 152 members instead of 131 as under the old consti tution. The Senate consists of 50 members before it was composed of 32. The Governor is chosen for four years by popular vote. Judges are elected by the people the Circuit Judges for eight jears the Judges of the Court of Ap Deals tor twelve years. Taxation to be ad I valorem , except on sla ves. Slaves not twelve years old not to be taxed, those over that age to b taxed an amount not exceeding th;it levied on land of the value of '300. White male inhabi tants twenty-one years old to be tnxed an amount equal to that assessed on land of the value of $200. One half the capitation tax on white males to be appropriated to purposes of educa tion in the tree schools. The liability to the State of any incorporated Company for any loan made to it by the State is not to be released, and the General Assembly shall not pledge the faith of the State for the debts of any corporation. Provision to be made by the General Assembly for t lie registration of voters, and for the regis tration of marriages, births and deaths. A cen sus is to be taken every five years after the de cennial censuses of the United States. Slaves hereafter emancipated forfeit their freedom by remaining in the Commonwealth more than 12 months. The General Assembly may pass laws for the gradual removal of the free negroes from the State. This is of course a very imperfect abstract of the provisions of the new Constitution of Vir ginia. Those who take an interest in this mat ter are referred for further and more particular information to the document itself upon which these remarks are founded. LATE FROM HAVANA. irrival of the Isabel JWr Thrasher imprisoned. The steamer Isabel arrived at Charleston on the 1st inst. There was much excitement among the American residents, and many rumors afloat on account of the harsh and apparently unfound ed treatment of Mr J. S. Thrasher, late editor and publisher of the Faro Industrial. He had been made a prisoner in his own house, his paper seized, and he not allowed to have any intercourse with his friends or family. Thus matters con tinued until the morning of the 29th ult, when he was brought to the Punta Fort and placed in a damp and unhealthy dungeon, in solitary con finement, charged with receiving letters in ci pher from parties in the U. States, "supposed to have a bearing on the revolutionary movements of Lopez. He, however, denies all knowledge of them or their contents. On the SOth it was rumored, and generally believed, that Mr Thrasher had been tried, condemned, and was forthwith to be sent to the mines. A letter to the Charleston Courier ascribes Mr Thrasher's arrest to his kindness and friendly attention to the American prisoners. The American Consul, Mr Owen, was still at his post, and the American residents charged him also with grossly neglecting Mr Thrasher, in not demanding for him his rights as an Amer ican citizen, as stipulated by treaty obligations with Spain. The feeling against Owen was in tense, -w. DIVISION OF CALIFORNIA. In California a movement is on foot which has for its object to remedy a wrong which a whig ad ministration encouraged, and by the aid of north ern yotes together with those of timid and un faithful men from the south, finally consummat ed. We allude to the admission of California with its immense territory, its great extent of sea coast, and its various geographical character, into the Union as a single State. The people of the southern part of California, sensible that their connexion with the northern portion under the same State government, diverse as the inter ests of the two sections are, is an unnatural and disadvantageous one, are mo ing to obtain a di vorce from it. This movement is opposed in the northern section because it is asserted that if the State is divided slavery will find its way into the southern State. This is just such an argument as might be expected from the advocates of free soilism. They are unwilling that slavery should be allowed an introduction into a sovereign State even though that State in its sovereign capacity should enact it. We hope, however, that this argument will not prevail. The question ought to be decided on altogether different grounds from any contemplated action by the new State on a subject legitimately within the scope of its jurisdiction. The subjoined extracts in relation to the movement are from the Alta California of October 1st : "Ir. another column will be found an extended account of a meetinjj held at Los Angeles in favor of a division of the State, together with the resolutions and address adopted thereat. The meeting appears to have been large in numbers, and among the names of its various officers and com mittees we observe many of the oldest, most intelligent, influential and respecta ble citizens of that portion of the State. The sentiment in fjvor of division, for the purpose of forming a territory of the southern country, appears to be quite gen eral; indeed, it is confidently asserted that it is unanimous. Hut there seems to be jjreat difficulty in agreeing: upon a time and place for holiiing the proposed Con vention for the adoption of a systematic plan of operations, and for the embodi ment of the public voice. It was at first proposed to hold the Convention at Mon terey, on the 15th of September, and no tice was generally given to that effect. Later, a committee of citizens ot San Diego issued an address recommending that the Convention should assemble at Santa Barbara on the third Monday in October. And now, the citizens of Los Angeles advise that it should meet at that city on the socond Monday fthe 1 0th J of November! This, to say the least, don't evince much concert of action or purpose among those engaged in so important a work as the division of a State. It is certainly to be wished that this Convention will assemble. There is ev ery reason to believe that such a body will be enabled to lay before their fellow-citizens, in a plain, practical light, the evils which are sought to be remedied. If this be done in a wise and proper spirit, and with a laudable desire to promote the true interests of the State and the nation there is no danger but that the Legislature soon t assemble will be enabled to adopt such measures as win protect, am. and d iutk tice to every section of our widely extend ed and diversified commonwealth." THE SCALPEL. We have received the Novemher number of the above periodical. It professes to be a " journal of health, adapted to professional and popular reading, and the ex posure of quackery." It is neatly printed on good paper, contains 64 octavo pages, and is edited by Edward H. Dickson, M. D. We have not had time to examine its contents as jet. But if they redeem the pledge given on the title page, the work is devoted to a good cause and ought to be encouraged. LATER AND IMPORTANT FROM MEXICO AND TEXAS. New Orleans, Nov. 1. Later advices state that the attack of the invaders on Matamoras on the i23d was by about 500 troops, mostly Texans. Thev were driven back, as before stated the .-teauierNeptune not being able to land the reinforcements up to the 24th. Cara vajal was hourly in expectation of reinforce ments from Camargo. A letter received here from good authori ty says the insurrection is movement. a smuggling Late advices from Texas state that the miners on the Sierra river are highly suc cessful. The Indians were committing great depredations thieving, murdering, &c in the neighborhood of El Paso. ESCAPE OF A FUGITIVE. MORE EX CITEMENT AT SYRACUSE. Syracuse, (N. Y..Oct. 3I A fugitive slave, the wife of a tree colored man residing in this city, vester day received warning that the United States marshal had a wariant for her air rest, when she immediately fled towards Canada. It has caused great excitement among the colored population and the white aiders and abetters in the resistance of the fugitive-slave law. A large placard has been posted on the principal corners of the streets, warning all fugitives to be on the look-out for kidnappers. The mar shal has issued orders to have them re moved. The grand jury have indicted James Lear, of Missouri, and Marshal Allen, for attempting to kidnap the slave Jerry, who was forcibly rescued from the possession of the marshal. Special Terms. Gov.

NEW CURE FOR CONSUMPTION We find the following statements in the Mobile Herald and Tribune, and if sus tained, the discovery will be invaluable. The quantity of the medicine to be given at a dose is not stated : In the first number of the New Orleans Monthly Medical Register we find an article bv Professor Stone on the vir tues of Pnosphate of Lime in Scrofula and other depraved states of the System," which isot some moment. It was suggest ed by an essay in the London Lancet on the ''physiology and pathology of the oxa late and phosphate of lime, and their rela tion to the formation of cells." ' The conclusions of the author (say Professor Stone) are based upon careful chemical research and results from the use of the remedy. His researches show that in man, as well as in vegetables and inferior animals, phosphate of lime as well as albumen and fat is absolutely essential foi the formation of cells, and he considers that manv of the pathological states of the system depends upon a deficiency of this salt 1 he affections in which it is advised are ulcerations dependant upon a general dyscrasia, and not a mere local affection ; infantile atrophy : in those suffering from rickets and consequent diarrhoea and tuberculous diseases, particularly of the lungs in the early stages.
