Tho editor of ilia Volin Ot nocrat, Mr. 3. T Walker,
who was a member ot the late Legislature, writes to fis
paper of last week from Richmond, and thus exposes the
“fraud and trickery" by which the Hunter men succeeded
in kii mg off Wue, and sending "packed delegations” to
Ch irleston. He says :
“TV action of the districts in our State has created sur
prijr in me minds of alino-t every one. But, if the peo
ple sere made aware of the traud and trickery prac
ti - J, they would timber be astonished or aman-i.—
E/erv element in the State i- combined agaiust Governor
Wise, and everv means resorted to for the purpose ot
encompassing his defeat. The tactics and chicanery ot
the Albany Regency Dave been transferred to Virginia,
and the voice and wishes of the people silenced and
crushed. In a number of the couuties wherever oppor
tune v afforded, the warm personal friends of Gov. Wise
hav-- been excluded from the delegations, and subjected
to other invidious discriminations. By packed delega
tions, and by mi-representing the trnoim and trpr****d
wiii of the people, hive the friends of Se’ a'or Hunter
triumphed iu Virginia. Bu- the victory will he a birreu

pick d delegation to Charleston at bis hecLs. Whenever
toe masses can speak, the question as to who is the choice
of the Democracy of this Sute will not be long iu doubt
And that time will come ,-oooer or later "
We have uo doubt, ourselves, of there haring boeu a
go h1 deal of "fraui an J trickery" practised in the recent
distri, t Conventions, and that thereby “packed delega
tions” h ire been elected to Charleston. In a word, the
friends of Wise hare been very badly used by the Hun
ter men. aad th ■ former should nse in the might of their
wrath, and set themselves and their favorite right before
the countrv. We maintain that it is in the highest de
fraud and trickery" on tho part of another set of men.
No mere dev>tioa to party—to its uniou and harmony—
should con train any man on earth to patiently and qui
etly acquiesce in the perpetration of a grievous wrong —

bvve be u p - .c i-ed. it is the solemn duty of the victims
of such "(riud and trickery,” instead of only whining
and complaining, to refuse submission to the action of
tbe "picked” Conventions and commi'tees, aud take an
appeal <il vc ly to the people, the source of all power

Why, then, do not t ie Wise men apply to the Demo

'file Proposed Telegraph to the Partflc.
T ie UU now before Congress lor the establis incut of
a line of telegraph from M ssouri to California, and pay- |
tug to the comptnv who shall construct it the sum of
$5’>.000 per annum, seems to be nothing more nor las*
ti.aa a scheme to hit the pockets of a few speculator- a.
the expense of the L nited States Government. It is wed
known that the Telegraphic Convention, lately in session
nt Washington, own or control every telegraph line In
the CiateJ^>fate*s^aud not content with the enormous
dividends, both in stock and cash, which they now re
ceive, and of which the public are never advertised, thev
• e* this large bonua from the Government, apparently
tor a work d> pendent ou it, but which we believe to be a
fixed determination, whether the Government aids them
financially or not. It is palpably clear to any inquiring
mini that a telegraph line to California will reimburse I
the constructors handsomely on the outlay—without anv
aid from the Government whatever, except the “rigut of |
wir" and the protection of the 1'uiicJ S itcs troops.—
It fallows, therefore, that tne fifty too naan 1 dollars, per
auuua, is so rnu.h surplus to be divided among the
spoilsmen, Independent ot this, there is a provision iu
tie b-.l requiring the United States Government to pa?
the Mine rates as private individuals, if the amount
0. 1arged iu auy one year is more than fifty thousand dol
lar*. If our Senators iu Congress will introduce a reso
t;oa calling on t:.e Secretary of the Treasury and other
departments for a uetailed statement of amouuts paid by
tne Government .for telegraphic dispatches for the pa.-t
four or five years—we opine they will be much astonished j
at the charge-, without a lane to California—and it is but
reasonable to suppose, wham the line it established to
Calitorcjt, they will , .icily go beyond fifty thou-ai dper
▼ear. Betide* the amount, which must necessarily be
div-ded betveea two or liiree.ditferent line*, before the
dispatch reaches the eastern terminus of the California

pintoa. ao tloai a healthful competition may be carried ou,

Charleston Compliments
The Democrats of Charleston havq a refreshing way
of exhibiting their distinguished regard for their brother
Democrat* of other regions. For instance, .one ot the
Charleston paper* (all the Chirleston papers are Demo
cratic) sneaks of the coming Convention as a “horde of
camp-followers and office-seeker*;” and another even
goes so far as to advise the citiiem of the city to "ligh%
ihtlanJ c-irffu'.lv gnitrdtheir private doors, during the
Convention, and to “bestow more teatcMng than hatpi
talltg on the camp-follower* who.shall come to swarm at
the assembling of the Convention."
Here are compliments for you 1 The elegant Charles
tomans are willing enough to accept the sturdy party
-•rvLvs of the Democratic barbarians of the North and
Northwest, but will uot allow the unwashed “horde” to
strike hand nor break bread with them, uor even to
touch the hem of tiirir garments, when they go to the
convention; nay, they w.ll “watffi” then. “shut their
doors” against them, and “carefully guard their proper
ty, during th.'sitting of the National Dsmooratio Con
vention, as though that body were a “swarm of pick
pockets. pdfervr*, and blacklegs, more d-serving of cells
in the Penitentiary than offices in the Government. And
v>“we are all Democrats," only the Charlestonians are
a little more “stuck up” than other folks.
llow do the corn-fed Democrats of Illinois and other
North Western States like the idea of being “watched
during their stay in Charleston ?
Outraged Insoeeicfc
The following to an extract from Pre*ident Buchanan s
iudignaut protest against tho resolutions of inquiry into
ni- Eiecuiive career, recently adopted by the House O'
“I can declare before God and my country that no
human being ^with an exception scarcely worthy of no
tice) has at any period of my life dared to approach me
with a corrupt or dishonorable proposition; aud, until
recent development*, it bad never entered into my im
agination that any person, even in the storm ot exasper
ated political excitement, would charge me, in the most
remote degree, with having made such a proposition to
any human being."
Geo. Jack sou, notwithstanding, did make that very
“charge.” Old Buck's nnmory must be failing him, if
lie ha* so soon forgotten a fact proclaimed from every
stump in the canvass that made him President. 0:
course we refer to the proposition that Gen J understood
Mr. Buchanan to prescut on the part of Mr. Clay and bro
friends, and which he denounced so vehemently.
At'VxRTtstxo.—Abetter appreciation exist* at the pres
ent time than h i- bitberio eiistcd amoug the merchiuts
of this city of the benefits to be derived from a judicious
evstera of advertising; and we believe this appreciation
will grow still stronger as the subject of advertising is
more inquired into and becomes more perfectly under
stood. That it is an aid to business, in a large majority
of its branches, is a fact which can easily be demonstra
ted. People look to the newspapers of the day a3 much |
for information as to wbat is going on in the business j
worlJ, a* they do to know what is transpiring in politics
and - >.ial life. No sagacious merchant undertakes to con
duct bis affair* without a studious perusal of all articles ]

commerce in which he is interested, aad so no prudent
dealer will make purchases without having first consulted
the advertising columns of the newspapers. Established
houses may think they can rely upon their reputation,
but this is a delusion from which many have been aroused
hv finding themselves outstripped and overshadowed by
firms more energetic and liberal. There is no better in
dex to a man’s character as a merchant, than the papers
of his eitv afford—nor is there auy staudard by which the
public more generally form their estimate of a merchants
enterprise and pnblie-spiritedness. Old business firms
wad II to b ar this in mind. No pre.-ent pro-; cr
tv should induce th*m to forget, that it Ls as nece-s.ry
to employ all legitimate agencies to preserve, as it is to
acquire, tride. They must no: only get before the public,
but they must ke*p before th• public—and the latter, in
the competition ot tneae fail limes, is scarcely easier ihau
ihe former.

Since the death of Judge Clopton, I have been ap*

And mv attention has beeu cull J to a communication
to the same affect over the siguatute of "Many Voters,”

In response to the latter, it is proper that I should an

many friends, my desire not to be a candidate for the

which I would be subjected by accepting it—a loss which,
1 hope 1 may be excused tor saying, would be a very great
one, and to which I cannot be wholly indifferent; there
are other considerations of a privare character, contrail

The New Orleans papers of Saturday last, contain
Com. Mariu'a protest against the capture of his vessels.
The following are the essential portions of it:
The undersigned, according to instructions from his
Government, was bound to, and ou the 6th ot March,
arrived at the port of Anton Lixardo, which is a port ol
the Republic ot Mexico, and there anchored his steamers.
Ou the night of the same day, at the hour of half-past
eleven, he was approached by three vessels, two steamers
and a three-masted ship, to wit: the steamer ave,
whom the undersigned knew to be iu the service of Dou
Benito Juarez, the President of Vera Cruz, the steamer
Iudianola, a merchant vessel known also as being in the
interest and at the service of said Don Benito Juarez,
and what turned out afterwards to be the Saratoga, a war
vessel ol the United States.
The undersigned, believing the said steamers Wave
and ladi tnola to be iu tbe service and under the orders
of the Vera Cruz Government, aud supposing that they
were towing up armed launches of Saul Government, to
attack huu, ordered the anchors to be laised, aud press
ed tue tires at the engine. At this very motneut, and at
a short interval from each other, he received two ball
shots from the approaching vessels, which were immedi
ately returned by the Mirawou. Presently the mists of
the ship became more apparent, aud the undersigned,
taking his spy-glass, soon discovered that the alortsaid
s.eauicts were not towiog armed lauu.besot the Govern
ment ol Veia Cruz, as he had supposed, but a frigate,
wntch, it struck him, might bo ot tue Uuited Stales,
tuough she had no liag at her mast any more than the
Wave aud the Iudianola ; aud at once ho ordered Lis
men to ceieo tiring, as Lis Government, not buiug at war
with the United State*, Lad instructed hiui sedulously to
avoid ali complications with that nation. But the fire
from the attacking vessels was resumed with increased
vigor, both with cauuon aud musketry. The steamers
Miraiuou and Maiquis de la Habaua were boarded and
captured, and the undersigned,with his officers aud crew,
reduced to rigorous captivity.
The uudersigued would state in addition, that among
the persons promiueut ou board ot the attacking vessels,
aud clea.ly engaged in the expidi iou,were Seuur Goicou
ria. Col. Jose uropeza aud the well kuown Senor LaLlave
oue of the generals of Dou Benito Juarez.
For all wuicu, and in view of the claim for redresss
.vud satisfaction which his goverumout may have to urge,
ou account of the outrage committed by Cupt. Turner,
of tbe Saratoga, without the Icilst color Ol right,pretence
or excuse, upon vessels aud men belonging to tue Mexi
can Republic, in the waters of Mexico, and within cannon
suot troni the coast, the uudersigued hereby pubhely, and
in the most solemn manner, protests.

Colonel Brown writes to tbe War Department from
Brownsville that reports the most false nud exaggerated
are put in circulation by persons interested in fermenting
trouble on the Rio Grande borders, immediately before
th > leaving of the New Orleans steamers, for the evident
purpose of exercising an intlueuce on public opinion iu
ihe Uuited States. Hence such reports should bo receiv
ed with the greatest caution. He a Ids that Cortinas’
movement was a mere raid, and the accounts have been
largely magnified.
The .State Department has written a letter to our con

which were subject to the most cnrelul chemical analy

been pronounced ov blur free from aiseuic. On the ot ti

The Supreme Court of the Tinted States are now en
caged with the argument ot the famous San Francisco
laud ease. The subject in dispute is the title to the tract
ot laud on which the greater part of the city ot San
Francisco now stands. It exceeds ten thousand acres
in exteut, reaching to the Pacific ocean on the west, the
bay ot San Francisco on the east, and extending about
six mill 9 South. Lai go and valuable stores und residen
ces have been erected upon this land by persons having
a squatter title only. The assessed value of the laud in
dispute is $15,000,000. The parties to the dispute are
the United States Government on the oue side, aud the
San Fi ancis.-o Land Association really on the other side,
although Mr. Bolton nominally appears on the record.
The tjau Francisco Laud Association is composed of many
hundreds of the mo-t prominent c tizens of Pennsylvai in,
aud is located ut Philadelphia. That Association have
p iid several millions dollars for the claim on which they
now rely, which was a grant made by the Mexican gov
ernment in California prior to the late Mexican war, to
one J. P. Santillon, under date of February 10th, 1840.
The gold discovery in California was not made until May,
1848. At the time of the grant to Santillon, Sun Frau
cisco contained but few inhabitants, aud the tract in
questiou was a sandy and barren waste. The tract was
offered for sale at public auction in January, 1810, aud
no bid could be obtained for it.
The dispute between the United States and the Land
Association turns chiefly upon the question whether the
grant to Santillon, under which they claim,was really ex
ecuted at the date it purports to bear—February 10th,
1840. The Cuitcd States now insist that the alleged
grant was either a forgery ora fraudulent antedating,and
that, in fact, the signature and the seal of the Mexican
Secretary of State were fabricated in 184'J—after the
treaty of peace between Mexico ai d the United States,of
May, 1848, bv which treaty all the unoccupied laud in
California was vested in the United States Government.
The decision of the board of Land Commissioners of
California was in favor of the Santillon grant—both the
Circuit aud District Judges of the United States concur
red in affirming this decision. The luited States will be
represented in the Supremo Court by Attorney General
Black aud lion. Wm. B. Reed, and the San Francisco
Lind Association by Hon. R. J. Walker,J. Mason Camp
bell aud St. Geo ge T. Campbell.
Letter fbou Gkx. HorsTOJt.—A letter from Genera!
Houston, of Texas, to the Secretary of War, dated Mar. h
14, has been published, detailing the late troubles on the
Rio Gra do. He denies that he ever proposed cro-. icg
over into Mexico with an armed force, although such a
step was in accordance with the wi-he.s and impulses of
the people of Texas. He has also, since 1857, been
w ritten to from various parts of the United States, urging
hnn to invade Mexico, with a view to tho establishment
of a protectorate, and assuring him that men, money and
iritis would be placed at his disposal if ho would engage
in the enterprize.
To these overtures he never made any favorable re
sponse. His recent action, theretore, in calling out vol
unteers, lie avers bas been grossly misrepresented. Tex
as, uot only on the froutier, but in some of the interior
counties, lias lately suffered severely from Indian depre
dations, and he took the best means at bis command to
stop the evil. In *o doing be consulted with the United
States i (Beers, and deferred in al' things to the Federal
requirements. He trusts the Department will call out a
regiment ot rani*-*, and attempt tJ negotiate wj.h tbs
Our readers probably remember that, some mouth*
ago, a Miss Carstang, of tjt. Louis, sued Mr. Shaw, a
wealthy citizen of the same place, for having broken his
promise to make her his wile. The jury gave her the
munificent verdict of $100,tt00 damages. She was con
tented, but Mr. Shaw was not: so he moved for another
trial, and obtained it. It has just been brought to a
close, and Miss Carstang gets - just nothing at all. It will
be her turn now to apply for a new trial, though the ex
perience of this last one vrill probably not inspire her
with auv very ardent desire for its repitition.
Miss Carstang, it seems, kept a boarding house in St.
Louis, aud after casually making Mr. Shaw’s acquaintance
cultivated it by borrowing money of him, on several oc
casions. He became quite a frequent visitor at her house,
and, she asserts, promised to marry her. Of this prom
ise her sister was the principal witness. Upon this sec
ond trial her whole life has been subjected to a merciless
scrutiny, the result of which was a conviction on the part
of the jury that her record was not sufficiently spotless
to entitle her to damag -g. She leaves the court, there
fore, not only without any pecuniary solace to her woun
ded affections, but with the reflection that her whole life
has been scrutinized and sifted aud analyzed—every in
nocent flirtation, every gracious smile bestowed upon a
former admirer, every act of thoughtlessness and imprn
ileuce weighed in the nicest balance of legal criticism;
thit she herself has been subjected to the mollification
ot sitting day after day and hearing the unfavorable
comments ol the opposing oouosel upon her character,
and to all sorta of insinuations and inuendocs, it not the
direct charges, that she was a female adventuress, that,
she had ensnared the defendant in her toils with the pur
pose of despoiling him of his wealth, and that a painful
uotoriety will henceforth attach to her name.
The experience of the law which Miss Carstang has
had will not be without its moral, and It will afford no
encouragement to others of her sex, whose affections
may have been trifled with, to carry their griefs into
court, unless they feel confident that there is no act of
this past life upon which an injurious construction can In
put, arid that they have been patterns of propriety and
miracles of prudence; aud unless also they can divest
themselves of all sensitiveness of feeliug, and are willing
to sacrifice the delicacy of the sex for a doubtful pecuni
ary compensation of an injury which loses all us hold
upon our sympathies when offset by dollars and cents.
It was quite time that such a lesson was given, for
these breach of promise suits have become disgustingly
common throughout the country. Half a dozen heavy
ve. diets seem to have stimulated scores of women, more
or leas young, iu vm ious quarters,to similar prosecutions.
It was becoming absolutely dangerous for a mau of
wealth to be civil to an unmarried lady. We trust they
will now breathe somewhat more freely.—.V. Y.Timet.
Tits Growi.no IVhsat.—A abort trip through the
country, within the last week, has afforded us an oppor
tunity of forming a pretty correct idea of the present
prospects ol the crop. Wo have, however, not learned
to take the appearance of the wheat at this early period
of the season, ns any sure indication of a good or bad
crop. Wo would all, doubtless, prefer, however, a good
early growth, to the backward state which is now uni
versally presented by the growing crop. In our travel
through the country of Hanover, Louisia, Oruuge, Cul
peper and Fauquier, we did not see a forward, thrifty
looking field of wheat. Along Jones’ river where the
wheat at this season is genentily several incites high, and
completely covering the ground, we did not see a siugle
field where the ground was covered—the growth is back
ward aud stands thin upon tilt- land. The complaint is
univers.il, that tho wheat at this season never printed
a more unfavorable appearance.—Farmvillt Journal.
Tiik Whkat Croi-.—The reports of the condition of
| the growing wheat, says the Parkersburg Gazette, from
nearly all parts of the country are favorable. Iu no
quarters have we noticed other than flattering account
thus far, unless we except the late sown wheat in a part
I of Kentucky.
Tiik Whkat.—Wo arc sorry to learn that the grow
! ing wheat is still looking very tadly, owing to the cold
and dry weather, yet from present appearances! no one
I oau tell how it will be at harvest time.—Orange County
Providence, April 4.—The general election for Gover
nor, and other State officers, took place in this Stale, to
day, after a most exciting canvass. The returns show
that William Sprague, the “conservative Whig” candi
date for Governor, supported by Democrat, Whigs,
Americans «ud moderate Republicans, is elected In a
large majority over ill. Padellord, the nominee of the
Republican party.
Mr. e prague is quite a young man. not thirty years of
age, a manufacturer, and the wealthiest man in the State
He is a partner in a leading N. w York mercantile house
Ills wealth Is estimated at several millions of dollars.—
Although not a politician, he is said to entertain national
sentiments. Walter 9. Burgess, on the ticket with him
for Attorney General, is a Democrat; and S. A. Parker,
the State Treasurer, is a member of the American party
T.:e candidates for Lt. Governor Hnd Secretary of State
were voted for by all parties.
The Republican majority tn the State in 1854 for Pres
ident was 4,7S7, and in 1859 foi Governor it was 5,.-!29.
Wasuisoton, April 4 —A very roluumious document
wa* sent to the Senate to-day embracing correspondence
, relative to the administration of justice iu Utah. The
j I'fges defended themselves at great length from the
ensures of the Attoniey General, as contained in a let
t-r which ha-- been published, and the di-trict attorney
likewise defends himself f rom charges of the judges as to
f i- alleged inefficiency. Ttie Attorney General’s opinion
of the judges may be inferred from the fact that he urges
tlie district attorney to realat their usurpation of his pro
per functions, and that their insisting upon doing the du
ties of attorney and marshal will destroy the peace of the
T> rritory.
The F.ye ov iiik Nkkulk.—The Scriptural simile, that
it 0 harder lor a rich tn.in to inter into the kingdom of
ill aveti, than fora Camel to go through the eye of a
needle, which has puzzled niauy u learned and unlearned
uc id, is clearly explained by n modern traveller.
in tin E 1st, all walled cities hare a small gate along
side of tfie great gales, which is called, in the figurative
language of that region, "the eye of the needle,” When
it is understood that the large gale* are closed at eight,
and that u traveller arrived afterwards, must enter
through the “eye of the needle," through which lie can
take las camel, if he desires to do co, only bv divesting
him of his burden, and causing him to kneel down; the
metaphor is iu> clear as it is simple and beautiful.
Wasiiinoion, April 4tii.—Tlie House select committee

An official report to the Legislature of Kentucky give*
the weight of tobacco raised In 1S52, according to the country as
sessors. The quantity, as compared with that reported by the
United Stales census of 1840and 1850, Is as follows:

It appears that the receipt* of tobacco at New Orleans from *11
sources of the Mississippi Valley exceoled, la 1859, the Kentucky
crop only 5,189 hbds., while it the previous dates the excess was
much greater :
The total receipts at New Orleans for a period of ten years,
ending Sept. 1,1859, foot up.665,496
Total exports for the same period, coastwise and to all fo
reign ports .648,88*
Excess of imports. 16,662
Takiog, says the report, the crop of Kentucky for (he year 1859,
as returned to the Slate Auditor by the county as lessors, and the
crop of 1M9, as returned by the mu shale for the United Elate*
census of 1851, and striking the mean is showing the annual pro
duct of Goi Plato, we have 55,924 hhda as our yearly crop, which,
multiplied by 10 gins 559,230 hhd* as the aggregate product of this
State for the period of ten years ending with 1859 :

We copy the following from the last circular of Mown.
T. A II. Messenger, New York :
‘•The enquiry for Tobacco has been on a moderate scale, and
the transactions for March scarcely reach the usual average. The

unfavorable change In prleee except for medium and common
grades, which are otherwise than firm ; choice Leaf continue* to

quantities to warrant a reliaoie opinion of its general character.
