After passing the turnpike gate, the head of
Ilie procession wheeled to the left, and proceeded
lor about a quarter of a mile to the field in which
“the stone’* was to he placed—the road on
leaving the turnpike descended gradually to a
broad and beautiful field, in the centre of which
a spur of a range of low hills abruptly termi
nates. Upon the poiut of the spur or ridge, a
handsome canopy w.is erected for the reception
ol Air. Carroll, the Rail Koad Directors,the Mayor,
and City Council, and invited Gue«t*. From this
point a broad anil level plain extended on three
side-, while on the fourth, the ridge continued for
some distance to the Southwest. Immediately
heloiv the canopy to the South, and on the side of
the hill liirthcst from the entrance into the field,
the usual preparations for laying the corner stoue
were made. On reaching the tic-id, the cavalry
formed in line across the ridge, and about two
hundred yards ;o the right ot the corner ston--.—
I'he barouche containing Air. Carroll, drawn by
four horses, with postillions, in light blue and
white, with round hats, and followed by several
other equipages ol the same description, drove at
once to the canopy. Among thus.- equipages, we
observed a veiy beautiful barouche, drawn by
four splendid grey horses,with postillions in blue
white, both with jockey caps, which was built and
got up for the occasion, by our enterprising fellow
citizen, Mr. Eaverson. Tlio leading tiles of the
f reemasons turning to the right on cnteiiug the
field, marched to the summit in Irontof the horse,
ami opening their ranks permitted the rear, con
sisting ol the Grand ami Junior Lodges, to pass
thiough them, until the whole had countermarch
ed, proceeding along the ridge, past the canopy,
and then tiling to the right formed a very large
hollow square around the corner stone.
On reaching the entrance to the held, the trades
marching ,n order ol eight deep, wheeled to the
W—file stages and cars turned off to the light
Irom the line, and drew up in line to the North
ol the lidge, and homing the South; while the
pi occasion with its banners pjssing round the
Las eru end, formed in the rear^of the Masons in
a solid mass in front of the canopy. The view
from the trout ot the ridge, as the piocession came
down ilie opposite hill, was beaut.ful in the ex
treme. 'Ilie Freemasons, in their double hies,
the sun shining on their ornaments, glinted back
from the points ol their wands, and glancing bright
ly on the heraldic blazonry ol their ban*, rs, led
the van, preceded ny the numerous and splendid
tioup ol hiiFsc which ictcd a> lie e.-cort on tne
occasion, i hen e unc the tra les with their gay
and beautiful eauopies, ami their proud platoons
moving with military pre tsion. Then hc.<. ing in
-ight, her topsails set, and drawing bravely,came
the shi]i Union, iho lead going all the while, and
•he sails changing their direction at cvciy turning
ci the roail, and hacked ..t every stoppage of the
car. As the cars wheeled into line, the ship was
regularly anchored, her topsails clewed up and a
gun tired, amt then leaving their iavoiitc, ‘he sail
ors moved with the rest of tlio procession round
the hill to join the dciw mass already assembled
before the canopy. Ai th ■ sound of the bugle the
immense audience uncovered, and the He.. Mi
ff v at r offered an appropriate prayer to the
I'hrone of Grace. Mr. Heath then read the
Declaration of independence, prctacingit by a lew
eloquent remarks. The Carrollton Alanli was
then performed by the hand; alter wuieh, Mr.
Muiuti.s delivered the following address from the
President and Directors ol the Company:
Fellow-citizens: I h » occasion which has as
sembled us, is one of great and momentous intcr
est—V< e have met to celebrate the laying of the
first stone of the Baltimore and Ohio Kail Koad,and
if there be ary thing which could rcndei tii day
we have chosen more interesting in our eyes than
it already seems, it is, that wc now commence
the construction of a work, which is to raise our
native city, to that rank which t: c a.jvanta«-ts ol
her situation, ami the enterprise ot her citizens,
entitle her to hold. The result of our labors will be
felt, not only by ourselves but also by posterity_
not only by Baltimore, but also, by Maryland, and
by the U. States. Wo arc about opening the clian
nel through which the commerce of the mighty
country beyond the. Allegany, must seek the O
ccun. Wa are about affording facilities of inter
course between tlio East am! the West, which will
bind the one more closely to the other beyond the
power of an increased population, or sectional dif
ferences to disunite. Vf e are, in lact, commencing
a new era in om history ; for there are none present
who ran doubt the great anil beneficial intiuenco
which tlm intended road will have in promotiii0
i'k agriculture, maiiiilactures, and inland tone
inerco of our country. It i-. but a few years since
the introduction of Steam Boats effected powerful
changes, and made those neighbors, who were
b fore far distant from each other. Of a similar and
equally important eff-ct, will be the Baltimore and
Ohio Kail Koad —while the one will have stemmed
die torrent ol the Mississippi, the other will havo
sin mounted and reduced the height of ihc t> !le
gliany, end these obstacles, before considered in*
supei.ible, will have ceased to he so, as the inge
nuity fc industry o! man shall havo been excite*!
to overcome them.
Fully impressed with the magnitude of the under
i .king committed to their charge, the Board of Di
rectors have used every means to ensure success.
I lie bust talent ol the country is employed in their
service; the General Government lias lent its offi
cers to assist, in M b it is justly condde.ed H work
ol national impoi tance; mucli valuable information
has been acquired; and with abundant resources
at their command, the Board of Directors find
themselves, within little more than a year after
the incorporation of the Company, fully prcpined
to cornu.cnco the construction of the GREAT
ROAD.
’Tis not in mortals to command success; but if a
determination to yield to no obstacle which human
exoition* can overeouic—an enthusiastic devotion
(o the cause—a firm belief that the completion ol
the magnificent work will confer the most import
ant benefits upon our country, and a thorough con
viction (hat it is prartic ihie—if all these, urging to
action, can ensure success— success will be ours.
This day 62 years -nice, two millions ol People,
the population of the provinces ol (.real Britain,
proclaimed themselves independent .State*, and
commenced llic task of .self-government. Our na
tive city was then au inconsiderable village, with
few and difficult means ot communication \yith t|,e

No sooner w.is this doue, than two boys dressed
as Mercuries, advanced to tlie canopy, and prayed
•hat tlie printers might be furnished with a copy of
the remarks and address just delivered, that they
might lie printed and distributed to the peoplo on

By (he politeness of Captain Soule, of the brig
Allred, arrived yesterday from Havre, we are fa
vored with Havre papers to the 30th May, inclu

A letter received at Havre from Lisbon, dated
May 5iii says: —
* ou doubtless heard that the registers intended
to receive the subscription of all the partisans of
absolute power had been left with the municipal
authorities. t his plan did not succeed to the
expectations ot the |>olite courtiers about Don
Miguel, it lias been observed that person* who
were sup|X>sed to be jv,irmly attached 10 the
scheme ol usurpation, instead ol giving their sim
I pie signature to the registers, have on the con
| irary written upon them the strong expression of
their opposition to (he absolute system. Many of
ilic street orators iullucnti.il wnh the populace,
1 wero unable to express their assent any other way
j than by making a cross ; others wrote, instead of
: what was expected ol them, Down with Don
-Migxict! or I 'irc Don Pedro and the conslitu
flon'1 Opinion* of this sort did not at all suit the
faction ; accordingly they decided that honcclor
waru 110 one shall subscribe the register except
under the oversight ol a guard selected for the pur
pose. 1 he soldiers inscribe their names several
limes over, without being allowed to add their re
sidence or the name ot their regiment. All that is
wanted is many names, no Mattel of what kind,
provided tiie number they want is gained.
1 be Regent presided at the Council of State
which was tic-ld ihe 2d of May. Every member
who intended to express a bold opinion received,
the evening before, an order uol to be present.—

it is said that the private mission to London, ol

tlijt !.u sc states have actually offered to pay an

ivow, let every reflecting reader look steadfastly
at this paper, and dispassionately ask himself, whe
ther it was possible lor any man, however well
qualified in body, language aud intellect, to per
form these complicated, laborious and intricato du
•ie< in less lime than several years? With tho
most indefatigable industry could the best qualified
anems pr-rloi in those called lor, in Nos. 1, 2 and in
the beginning ol 3 alone, in less than several years?
Could'any man, labouring in the last stage of pul
i inonary consumption,without any knowledge what
; ever ot' the Spanish language, perforin them, in all
j ,,m<: ? Vet such was the precise condition of Mr.
. t ook, “on the close of the 19lh Congress,” when
“designated” to this mission—“ it being ascer
tained that he would accept.”—Is il possible to
belli.ve, that when “.designated,” Mr. Clay did
think Cook was qualified' to pertonn the duties
calle.i for by bis instructions ? If not, why desig
nate Cook in preference 10 all others, “on thecloso >
ol ihe 19th Congress”—and for what other object
could Cook have been designated ? There could
be but one—to reward him tor the vote of Illinois,
given to Mr. Adams. The evidence in relation to
i the 9th result will be seen in Mr. Hamillon’s com
j munications, to the Retrenchment Committee,
| which states in substance : That the disclosure
I Crew out ol a conversation with a citizen of tho
| District—until which disclosure the mission itself
j had been kept profoundly secret, except so far as
* I ook bail biuiscil disclosed it to a lew friend?,
whose names were given io the Chairman, by his
informant; and from whose evidence, with Air.
Clay’s statement, tiie sectet mission was, in part,
biougiit bclore the Committee. In tho application
ol the evidence to the 10th lesult, respecting the
consternation produced upon Messrs. Adams and
Clay, and Messrs. Everett and Sergeant, it
will only be necessary, in the case of Messrs.
Everett aud Sergeant to recur to the minutes
. ot tlie proceedings ol the Kutrencliiueut Com
| mittee—and in case of Messrs. Adams and Clay
I —to the call of tile Chairman upon Mr. Clay
for information, and his reply, and to the e.\pki
j nations ol the C'ulu mission by Mr. Clay to Mr.
. Adams of the 3d June last. Upon the first blush
] of the annunciation ot Cook’s mission to Cuba,
, made by the Chairman, Mr. Everett states tlm
j subject to be “ important ’—o much so, as to justi
fy him, in asking time ’till next day, medidium; to
,“ confer” with his associate partisan, Mr. Sar
. Ijcaut, then atoeiit from iudisposilion.—Granted,
I “cm. con. Wliat could have given the character
of peculiar importance to the disclosure of Cook’s
■ -ecrot mission ? It could not have been from the
I amount of tlm reward claimed by him—$5,000.—
That-um could not be deemed by Mr. Everett
more than dust in tho balance, as it would seem,
from the ingenious devices of the Report of tlm
minority Retrenchment Committee, in various at
t -inpts to disguise tiie pi ofligacy of the Administra
tion, in rewarding its lavuuritcs to any amounts
whatever, and for services performed, or lor pre
• tended services no performed.— It could not have
I *>eun» from the mere circumstance, that it was a
j '!?cfct mission. There had been many instances of
j similar missions before, without having any alarm
I ing iiiiportance attached to them Tho alarmiug
importance then,In this particular caso, must have
arisen from its own particular character. It could
only have arisen from the conviction, that this se
.vet mission was intended as a compensation ibr
C oox’s vote in favor of Mr. Adams to the Presiden
cy* b* this view it must have beeu conceived by
Mr. Everett to be alarmingly important. In this
view, it must bo considered as full evidence of the
corrupt means by which Mr. Adams was elected to
the presidency, and still Imiils that office.—In this
j view, to-he-suro, it would account for all the a
i (arms subsequently displayed by Messrs. Adams
and ( lay, Everett and Sergeant. Inno other view
whatever, could it have been maguitied into im
’poi tjuce, or have justified the consternation and
alarms produced try it.—in tins view—tho only
view—it is surety important enough—alter havin'*
ascertained, by a note from the Register, Mr.
Nourse, that it did not appoar from the Treasury
