Char. Cour. The Cholera in the West. The St. ' Louis papers state lliut the cholera is raging with learful mortality at Liberty, nnd other points on the Missouri river. The small pox is also quite prevalent, and is carrying ofT its victims daily, A colony of Belgians, recently located near the town of Kanses, on the Missouri river, have nearly all died of cholera. The surgeon in attendacce died from the same disease. The St. Louis Republican has a letter from the Plains, which gives a sad account of the ravages of cholera among the Cali fornia emigrants. It is believed that at least two hundred and fifty deaths occurred during the first two weeks of June. One hundred and fifty graves were counted by one person who was traveling from Fort Kearney to the Westwardi A letter from Kaskaskia, III., dated July 13, says that four deaths by cholera had occuned at that place during the four pre vious days. At St. Louis on the 17th there were 100 deaths, of which 90 were by cholera. There is no cholera at Pittsburgh. The papers say the general health of the city is as good as usual at this season. There was ono death by cholera at Co lumbus, Ohio, on the 23d. At Cincinnati, from the 1st to the 23d Inst, inclusive, the deaths by cholera were G59. The number of deaths from all dis. eases, during the same period, including cholera, Was 13C3. ' A Step Forward in the Old Domin ion.

FROM WASHINGTON. Washington, July 27. The past week, in Congress, has been remarkable not fur what has been done, but not dune. The House was to take up the California ajinissinn bill, but (lie mo tion was defeated by a large majority, and the appropriation bill were taken up, but no progress made in (hem. In the Senate, the original compromisebill of Jho Commit tee of Thirteen was abandoned, because it could not bo passed in its present form, Amendments, deemed essential to its sue cess, were framed and brought forwird un dcr flattering auspice, but nothing has been done, save to continue the discussion, Tho Northern me.-nberfr, with majority of fifty in the House, were, at the com. mericcmcnt of the session, bent upon pas sing the Wilmot proviso, and admitting California. Both measures were attempted, and signally failed. The reason given for thoir failure, is that, tho Free Soil faction had taken them in hand, as their special property, and that the o'd lino Whigs and Democrats would not follow their lead. Ev ery demonstration, made by the Northern extremists, like Seward and Horace Mann, lias counteracted their own movements. Sumo of tho movements of the South bavo also boen inn do use of with great effect, in favour of conciliation, as will bo seen by the presses here, and by the last speeches of Mr. Webster and Mr. Clay. Mr. Jefl'erson Danis said that thern was n order in existence, at prescn', for the interference of the United States military with tho authority of Texas, if she under took to enforce it. 1 ho oners wcro to pre serve a neutrality. The original order from Mr. Marcy was to aid Texas. Tiierc is some disagreement as to the character of existing orders to Col, Monroe. Tho fact is that Gen. Taylor had come to a decision to resist Texas, but had given no orders to that, effect. The question is now before Mr. Fillmore, and has not been decided. Mr. Butler objected entirely to llie Com, mission proposed. Its object was to buy n pnrt of Texas to moke a Free Slate on the Western border. The whole community was ;o pay for the purchoec of territory to moke a Free Slate. We not only gove up slaveholding territory, but we established a Free State on I lie border as a refuge for fugitive slaves. That was the effect ol the proposition, as he warned his friends. A new turn was given to the discussion by a Very absurd movement on the pari ol Mr. Seward. lie moved mi amendment, providing the President be authorized to de clare New Mexico a Stale of the Union, on on equol footing with the original Slates, provided tho Constitution adopted by her wasrepublicon. Upon this he made a long speech. Mr. Praltsaid no other mnn would have made so impious a proposition; no man who did not avow that he was a traitor tii hi oath, and was governed by a law higher than the Constitution. The Senator might to bo expelled for that avowal. Mr. Seward denied the doctrine imputed to him, and undertook to explain it away, and Mes srs. Hale. Baldwin, and Chaso came to his aid with some Jesuitical disquisitions con tending that it was nothing but the admisi sion ol the existence of Gud, for which they were willing to be expelled also. Sew ard's amendment was rejected Ayes( Sew. ard. Nays, 42 not ono Senator voting with him, and verifying the remark of Mr. Pratt, that he was the only persnn who would have offered it. The difficulty between this Government and that f Portugal, is slated to be settled. The death of Mr. D. P. King, of Massachu setts, member of the House, will be an nounced to-day. Washington, July 28. 1550. Yesterday the death of tho Hon. Daniel P. King, a member of t lio House from Mas. sachusettsi, was announced in both Houses, and an adjournment took place. This is the only death that has occurred among the members of tha House al this session. Mr. King left this city, unwell, and died at home, Mr. Ewing. late Secretary of tho Interipr, look his scat as Senator from Ohio, in the place of Mr. Corwin. Mr. Ewing is a man of talents and great energy, a very strong Whig, and like most of the Ohio people, very much prejudiced against Slavery. He was, in the lata Cabinet, a supporter of the 'President's plan," and came into collision with Mr. Clay, in privato conversations, on that subject. He is the Cabinet member, alluded to by Mr. Fo.te, as having used his influence among members of Congress, sgainst the Compromise Bill. Of course he may bo regarded as sn opponent of the measure, and one not content to give a si. lent vote upon it. . Il is rather doubtful whether a final vole ever will be obtained- Mr. Douglas yes. terday brought forward proposition to in troduce in the Senate the previous question, with view to put some limit to debate. Dut I doubt very much whether the bill ATHENS, TENN., FRIDAY, AUGUST 9, 1850. can bo put in such a shape as to secure a majority of votes even in the Senate. The proposition to submit the Texan question to a Commission will lose as many votes a it will gain. It wiil alienate the support of tho Texan Senators. But, again, tho Sill cannot pass, without a reduction of the boundaries f California, and such an amendment will nlienato same Northern support. It appears to mo Ihnt the project is dead, and no new schema is likely to arise from its nslies. It remains only for Congress to pnss the Appropriation Hills, and adjourn, giving a truce to the territori al questions. We must give up Congress, or Congress must give up slavery agitation. The Northern people seem now to bo fully aware of tho dangers that threaten the Union, nnd yet, nre slow to lake any steps to save it. The danger that was to arise from tho acquisition of new territory was foreseen, but not provided against. The parly that got us into the difficulty has not strength to gel us out of it. Cor. Char. Cour. SC7 Mr. Walsh, the Paris correspond ent of the New York Journal of Com merce, writing on the 11th ult., says: "Dismal accounts ol the social nnd politi cal condition of Guadaloupe and Martin ique, are reported by the French Ministry to the Assembly. Martial law is to be de clared ovsr the whole of Guadaloupe.- Abolition has rendered it impossible for the whiles to retain long any footing in the Antilles." At the last dates, tho American fleet was off the port of Lisbon. Tho popers furnish no intelligence rcsprciinrr iho difficulty be tween Portugal and this Government. Hostilities, it is believed, hivo actually commenced between Pcnmork n ltd the Duelios. There? was o large Russian fleet nil' llie coast, which was supposed to hove: Ven sent there lor the purpose ol Inking action in reference to the dillietillies. A Remarkable Freak of a Manoic is noticed by I lie Trenton True American as occiirrins at Bordenlown yesterday morning-. The locomotive, winch was to bring the morning train from Bordenlown to Trenton was missed, and the engineer pro cured another when they reached Trenton they -discovered the missing one fast in the switches, blowing ofl steam al great rate. "When they came U it they found a man trying to rebuild the fire, and the water and cinders splashing over him and the engine. It seems that a crazy man, hailing from New- Hope, Pa., had come here from Bordenlown on Monday evening, and re turned in the same train. Some time dur ina the night, or early in the morning, this madman had gone to the engine, kindled a fire, put on one of the pumps, which had been taken off, and lot finding the oil had melted tallow, with which he greased all the apparatus and, putiing on steam, came up to this city like a streak of ""rcaeed lightning." The engine had been managed very well, as it was not at all injured; but it is supposed he did not know how to back il when it got in the switches here, which were locked. We understand he must have passed one or two switch.es before reaching this station He said he look the engine to see how fast it could be made to go. He was taken back to Bordentown, and sent thence to his hiends. His escape from destruction was very lucky for him." Tt'pENNT Frugalitv. Some industri ous muck-worm is busily employed in hunting up the items of cost of President Taylor's funeral, and he sets them down, including the powder burnt at the United Slates military and naval stations, at a hun dred thousand dollars. He even counts the number of yards of crape used, and adds the retail price. Proper public frugality is highly commendable, but it is iib-r a con templible exhibition of miserly meanness. to see one sitting down to measure the loss to a nation of one of its purest patriots by the cost of his funeral expenses. The living virtues of the illustrious dead are worth more in examples lo generations coming after than all the pecuniary wealth ol tbe whole public treasury. Cirt. Gas. Last Survivor of the Concord Fight. We learn from the Bunker Hill Aurora. that Mr. Amos Biker of Lincoln, Mass., died on Tuesday last, ltiih. He was the last survivor of the Concord Fight, and the only man living who bore arms on the 19ih of April, "75. He was present al the late celebration at Concord, and was 91 years of sge an the 0th of April last. A man's nature is indicated by his dress. The open hearted man wears his clothe loose and corafurtaUi, while narrow-con. tractsd men sport neatness, and white choakers, lied very tight. Your moneyed gentlemen, on the contrary, are close shaved, and look gl"y and crisp, like a new bank note. As Dobbt very justly re marks, never ask a favor of a man who weara his cravat tight. DANIEL WEBSTER. In the foreground tho new Cabinet which President Fillmore is colling about li t in. stands ilifl colossal fijrurn of Daniel Webster. There he is, one of tho giants, his ii:ossive brow locking (is if modo to bear the wciil.'t of empire, and tho light of -oge tempering with calm serenity that grand anil thoughtful countenance, ns the rays of Ihe setting sun linger upon and beautify the stern nnd ruined mountain side. There ho is, a man and on American, whom wo are proud to present to tho nation as a repre sentative of our country o statesman vho commands ihe admiration of iho Old World ani tho JSew.nnd whoso name in ony tJtibi' net mid any eV.lerprisu is a lower of strength and of tnojosiy, against which tho waves of faction and of section bent in vain, Daniel Webster has before filled the ollice of Secretary of State. It wns not known, when he entered it, whether he could add i.ew laurels to his fame in other fields. At tho bar, he had long stood prominent, in tiio realms of law, of logic and of eloquence; as a scholar and &n orator, ho had no rival among the public men of America; as a Senatorial debater, ho stood wi'hout a peer, wielding in his sinewy arm a battle oxo of argument, hrnvy as tho ponderous w eapon ol Cuair le Leon, yet bright nnd keen ns the scimetar of Saladin. Und?r the renown of such a reputation, ho camo to the Depart ment of Stale; yet. instead of disappointing expectation so highly raised, he inure than realized the most ardent hopes. He proved himself, in his management, of our foreign affairs, us re'iinrktihle for powers in diplo macy ns for eloquence in debate. Wise, colm, fhr-sihted, firm, yet liberal, ho set tled advantageously nun of I he most nncirnt and oinino'is ol'our dillicnll jes with England, and elevated the character of our country by the dignified spirit, as well ns masterly skill with winch hn conducted its affairs, Wero there no innuoiiipiitH of Daniel Wcln ster but his correspondency ns Secretary of Slttlo, he might well rest upon them his immortality. Even considered only as models of pur,', clear, vigorous English composition, they are not to he surpassed by any similar productions upon the public records of England and America. Yet, it was possible r;von for Ihis man, clothed nr.d i"uniJ with all these laurels, and advancing ; H tho bnrdor of old age, to wiii4iow trophies, which should outshine nil tho achievements of his younger duys. While there was no longer n vice, lo ques tion the supremacy ol his intellectual pow, ers, and his genuine American Moling, dis played so tirmly and so not) y during Ins administration ol'our foreign nffairs. il was asserted that he wns a ninii of section, and that the powerful structure of his intellec tual organization wns accompanied by an absence ol moral curngo which destroyed llie harmonious syminelry of this character, It bus been reserved lo Inter events lo (row tho lal fang from the serpent tooth of mal ice nnd to vinilieine Daniel Wensler, as a Iruo man und ti great genius, as a pn'rioi and a slatc-iii'iti. .The most bitter of his democratic i pponents have hailed his recent efforts with o loud hurst of npplause, cchced even from nil South Carolina, a' the manly nnd noble stand tnken by Daniel Webster in Iho Senate of tho United States, nnd tho heroic and sublime ground assumed by this great moral hero, when in the very front of Boston 1'ar.nticism, ho thundered forth, ' tread no slip backwards." The true char, acter of Daniel Webster is now understood. He is seen as tho great American, to whom North and South are a coirinou coun try, who is rendy to sacrifice in a moment admiration of hi own section, rather than do injustice to a section which has not alwoys rendered jusiice to him; but uho could not, even if ho would, prevent poster ity of nil sections nnd of nil lands from proclaiming him ihe gfent sl intellect of llie nineteenth century, and a patriot nliovo fear nil above reproach. Such is the man whom Preside tit Fillmore has (.elected as Secretory uf Siote. We hail that appointment ns a most evident token that (he new President will pla.it his administration upon t lie broad, just, liberal national grounds uf which Mr. Webster lias been the exponent in tho United States Senate. In that appointment, uo seo the heal of power crushing, as it ought, the serpen' head of fanaticism. Richmond lie publican.

Low. Jour. i in 1 1 Extraordinary I'am.oon AscessioS. A Paris letter ol Sth instant, published in Ihe New York Courier, says: . "Yesterday I was witness, as was all Paris, of a balloon sscension, which wns perhaps unique in the history of arostation. Margol ascended in IS20, mounted upon a stag, but both he and stag were in an ordi nary cnr. Yesterday, M. Poitevin ascend ed on horseback, and without a cnr. The horse, a line nnd spirited young while onii mnl, was suspended beneath the balloon, in the place usually occupied by the car. Bands passed beneath the belly and well secured, left the animal in an easy position, with the legs free. Mr. Poitevin, 'clothed as a jockey, mounted the horse, which was saddled and bridled in the ordinary manner, bihI gave orders to ett loose. The horse seemed loth to quit his mother earth, and remonstrated a little when he found that he was being taken off of his feet. But once in air he became ns motionless as though he had been struck with paralysis. He must, in (act, have been not a little astonished, and it was probably that aston ishment which struck him dumb and mo tionless. They moved off and up rapidly, now hid, now seen amid the clouds in noith-east direction. We hnve not yet had accounts of the descent, nnd do not know whether it was hnppily and safely effected."
