Arrival oj the Great ll'estcrn.
The Great Western arrived nt N York on Sunday af- i
ternoon, being 14 days and 12 hours on her passage? !
We are indebted to our friend, Dr. M'Cauley, now in j
London, and to Thomas Palmer, Esq , of this city, for co- j
pious files of London papers to the 2(hh, Liverpool pa- j
per? to the 2l)lh, and Bristol papers to the 21st July, in- ]
elusive. From these sources, we have made the subjoined
interesting extracts:
The Great Western, as we learn from the Courier & ;
Enquirer, sailed from Kingsroad, Bristol Channel, ol 8 I
o'clock, P. M , on the evening of the 21st of July, and
arrived on Sunday morning, at 8 o'clock, A. M ; thus
accomplishing her third voyage from Bristol to N York !
in 14 days and 12 hours, notwithstanding her having ex- j
perienced more rough weather than on any founer occa- .
sion. She brings out 130 cabin passengers, end a full ;
cargo of freight. Among the passengers we notice the
names of Mr. Power, the justly popular comedian; Mr.
nH Mn Mathews flute Madame Veatris.l and Mr. Mav
wood, the Manager of the Philadelphia Theatre.
The political newa is not of much importance, though j
it will be found that great anxiety has existed in relation '
to the course which the King of Belgium may adopt in j
regard to the twenty four articles about to be forced upon :
him by the great powers of Europe.
The affairs of the East, too, have threatened to give i
trouble to Europe, in consequence of Mehemet AH, the
enterprising and enlightened Pacha of Egypt, having re- j
fused to pay any further tribute to the .Sultan, and at the
same time given notice to the Consul of the European :
Power* of his determination to assert his independence
of the Porte. By the last accounts, however, it would ,
appear that the prompt declaration of the European ;
Powers, that they should feel themselves compelled to
enforce the authority of the Porte, had induced the Pa- ;
cha to change his determination, and pay the arrears of,
tribute due to the Sultan.
The affairs of Canada necessarily occnpy much pub j
lie attention in England, and judging from the debates j
in Parlisment ond the public press generally, the inea- !
aurea adopted by Lord Durham imntc'dialefy after as
Burning the Government, have given very general dis :
satisfaction. His reorganization of the Council has not j
only been pronounced illegal by the leading members of
the House of Lords, but even the premier and other
members of the Cabinet have admitted their astonish,
mtnt at the character of his appointments to the Coun
cil. The debates on this subject are of considerable interest*,
and we shall endeavor to make room for them.
The Irish Corporation Bill, as it is termed, continurs
. to occupy the attention of Parliament and the people ?
In the Lords the clause extending the right of suffrage
to occupant* of ?5 tenements has been rejected, and
?10 substituted. Ministers have acceded to this change,
nd it will doubtless pass the House of Commons as it
return* from the Lords, notwithstanding the declaration
of O'Connell and others, that they would refuse to receive
it with the ?10 qualification clause inserted
Ireland continue* in a most disturbed slate, and O'Connell
declare* that nothing will satisfy him and her but
the total abolishment of the tythe system.
Commercially, the following notice from the house of
Wilde* & Co., which appeared in th? London evening
paper* of lbs 20th of Joly, will be deemed of importance
"All persona having any claims against Geo. Wildes
& Co , as Bill holders or otherwise, are requested to present
the same f?r payment at their Counting house, Wo.
11), Coleman street.
In relation to this notice, our private correspondent J
writes as follows: " fly the evening papers just issued, |
" you will perceive that George Wildes & Co. Bdver"
lixe to pay off ul! their book debts and acceptances ? <
" This is so tar well. Thpy only pay a psrtof theirac- I
" Com mod at mn to the Bank, and you are consequently i
" aware that the securities still remain for the portion i
" unpaid, hut this they are to pay by instalments, for i
" which the dates are fixed "
The papers are filled with the details of a severe storm I
of rain accompanied with thunder, which occurred in <
Lancashire and Yorkshire in July, by which many lives j
were lust, and a large amount of property destroyed.?
Also, with the particulars of the destruction by fire of
the Vaudeville Theatre ot Paris, end a great fire at Grand .
Cairo, which raped upwards of three days,and destroyed
about COO houses.
The Paris papers of the 10th are destitute of important i
news They announce the termination of the labors of j
the Chamber of Peers on the preceding day. The pro- j
rogation of the Chambers took place accordingly on !
Thursday. The Prince de Joinvilie, third son of King j
Louis Philippe, arri ved at Brest, from his long cruise, on
the JOtli inst., in excellent health.
John Van Bureri, the son of the President, is, we spe,
fclrd in common with the Duke de Nemours. Prince Es- >
tPihazy, Schwariz-riburg, the Dukes of Dalmstia, Wellington,
and others At the grand entertainment of the
Ambassadors at Guildhall by the Corporation of London,
John is set dowi among the very chosen few on the
right hand of tl?? Lord Mayor.
The Paris papers speak of the attention shown by the
Queen to the Prnce de Nemours a9 of so marked a character
as to admit of hut one construction?the desire for
a matrimonial alliance. The English papers on the
other hand ridieule the idea.
Dr. Patrick McCauley, of this city, was presentrd to
her .Majesty on the J6tli tnsl., oy t*ir ciirv?-i??u... r?? ,
the same time were presented His Excellency Mr.j
Thronp, Minister of the L1 States to Naples, and Capt. I
Perry of the .Navy of the U. States.
In the House of Lords on the 17th of July, Lord Win- j
chilsea inquired of Lord Melbourne whether any appoint- I
ment had been conferred by Lord Durham on Mr. Gib- j
bon Wakefield; whether Sir John Colbmne had resign- 1
ed the command of the troops in Canada; and whether j
Lord Durham had applied for an additional force? Lord t
Melbourne replied, that he had received no information
on the aubject of lire appointment alluded to; that it was ,
true that Sir John Colborne had resigned, but that be ;
was not aware of any alteration in the condition of Canada
that called for an increase of troops there.
Lord Londonderry asked whether any steps hac been >
taken by the Spanish Government for the immediate
payment of the arrears due to the British Leginr??
Lord Melbourne replied, that it was the great object of i
the commission which had been appointed to inquire into '
those arrears, tn have ihem settled as suepdily as possible, j
The Juvenile Offenders Bill and the International!
Copyright Bill went through committee.
Lord Wharnnliffe moved, pursuant to notice, for co- ;
piea of any petition, memorial or other communication I
made to the Lord Cnatirellur from any person or persons j
residing in Leeds or its neighborhood, respecting the i
insertion of certain names in the commission of the peace '
for tlie West Riding of Yorkshire. After a short debate i
Lord WbarnclifTe withdrew his motion on the Lord
Chancellor declaring '-that he was not aware of the e.t- 1
istence of any memorial of the kind "
Lord Melbourne, in moving tl-it the report of the ;
Irish Municipal Corporation Bill be received, lie ex !
pres-e-J his disapprobation of some of the amendments :
which had been made to the measure, on the motion of .
Lord Lyndhurat; but lie said, that he would not abari- !
don the bill on account of (heir adoption. He gave rut- '
lice, however, that, on the third reading of the bill, he
will move the addition of a certain number of towns to
schedule A ; and also the addition of another schedule, j
Containing several oilier towns, to which lie thought cor- j
poration and municipal government ought to be given j
by the bill, with a lower rate of qualification. The re- j
port having bepn received, the bill was ordered to be ;
read a thud tune on Friday week.
In the House of Lords, on the lG'.h,
Lord Brougham brought forward his motion for ,:nn ]
" humble address to Her Majesty, praying that Her Ma"
jesty would be graciously pleased to issue an Order in
" Council forthwith, to put a period, under proper pin"
visions and regulations, to negro apprenticeship in the ,
" unchartered colonies of the Crown."
Lord Glenelg entered upon a long statement of the in- [
telligence winch he had received Iroin various colonies, I
and expressed his belief, that '-the work was complete?
that the power of these colonies was pprfect, and further, ,
that it was more than possible, that all these Crown co- :
looies had accomplished the same acls which the char- |
tered colonies had already accomplished In fact, when
the House met again, he had no doubt that tile complete ,
and unqualified termination of opprenliceship would lake ,
The great city entertainment, in honor of the coronation
of Queen Victoria, took place on the 13th ull. Jtis ;
said to have lipen the moat magnificent affair known in j
the city since the memorable era of Iel3. when so many
of lilt* crowned heads of Europe partook of a banquet :
under the same roof All the foreign and most of the
domestic nobility in London, the foreign ministers and
ambassadors, (among whom was seated Mr. John Van j
Buren, son of the President) were present. Borne idea ,
of the inugniScrnce of the entertainment may be formed .
from the splendor of llie illuminating arrangements ? j
There weie no leas than 14,lVll jets of gas burning, each '
jet being equal to about tlirea? wax candles, producing a
llood of light equal to about 45.000 wax candles.
A splendid military spectacle took place on the Pih i
u!t in Hyde I'ark, wheie about 6,000 troops were review-j
cd by the Queen, in presence of the members of the j
royal family, nearly ail lier Mnjeaty's Ministers, and all .
the Ambassadors Extraordinary, which exceeded any i
oilier that had assembled on the same ground since the !
visit of the allied sovereigns. At eleven, the time epe- I
citied for the comr?*nceiiipnt of the manoeuvres, there ;
were more than 100.000 persons on the ground. The
troops took nn>re than two hours in arriving.
Sully's picture ol Queen Victoria is very highly commended
in Ihe London papers, who give the best evi- |
deuce that the paragraph was British inaiieby their mis
takes. It is said to be ordered lor the "Town IJall ' in
i'hilodeiplua. It was ordered for the St George's tjnei
cty of our sister city. Lngravinga are in prepaiation j
from it.
fLYMocTti, July 1G.?Arrived the Sirius steamer, in
Jo days from New York. She has hud a very pleasant
passage, and but for the bad quality of the oai shipped ;
in America would have been much quicker. Twenty
chief cabin and six fore cabin passengers caine home
in her.
Mr. Rush, formerly Minister from the U. S to this
country, who has been recently staying here,empowered
by his Government to superintend the suit of the
' United States rs Drummond," in the Court of Chancery,
under the will of the la'p Jas Sinilhsoti (by which ,
?li)H0t)t) were left to the U S to found a literary insli- j
tuiion at Washington), sailed on Wednesday, in the |
packet ship Mediator, for New lotk, having succeeded ;
in the object of his mission.
( Frmn Felix Farley's Bristol Journal, July 21) I
The Great Western steam ship will leave Kingsroad
this evening about 7 o'clock. She takes out wilh her 113 '
passengers,among whom are Col Webb.and Mr and Mrs.
C. Mathews, (Lie Madame Vestris,) who are about making
a professional tour to the U. S. Tile Directors have
made a request to Col Maberley, that the letters from
Liverpool should not leave before 7, on Friday evening,
instead of the regular hour, as she w ill then take out the j
cotton report of the week, an object of the greatest com- I
mercial importance to the U. S.
Charge or Attempting to Enter tiik Qceen's '
Apaktmf.nts ?Yesterday an unfortunate man named 1
Thomas Flower, who has been charged upon two seve- !
ra! occasions at the Queen square police office with hav- 1
ing bees found in ihe precincts of Buckingham palace, !
in order to demand the hand of Her Majesty in mar- ;
ringe, was brought before Messrs Gregorie and Wlntp, j
charged at the instance of the Hon Chas Murray with !
having attempted to intrude himself into the apartments !
of the Queen at the palace. Mr. Randall, one of the
Queen's pages, deposed that on Monday night, about
10 minutes before 12 o'clock, he was passing through
the picture gallery, and found the defendant, who was
attired in the meanest manner, seated upon a chair,
within seven yards of the Royal bed room It appeared
that her Majesty had only tetired to rest about 10 minutes
previously, and that the defendant had obtained
entrance by mixing with the servants of the foreign ambassadors,
who had been invited to an entertainment
after the review in Hyde Park Police sergeant Cook,
of the B. division, stated, that the man, who slyled himself
('apt. Flower, of the 13th Light Dragoons, was most
obstreperous upon being taken into custody. It required
the aid of two policemen and two of the Rifle Brigade
to convey him to the station house, and even then
it was necessary to strap his legs and arms He said that
his intentions towards the Queen were highly honorable.
Dt-lendanl?And so they are. It was entirely by mistake
that I wandpred into the picture gallery, nor did
I know that her Majesty's bed room was so closely nd |
jtcent. J came fo speak to Lady Mary Siopl'ord. Mr j
Randall stated that the man had tried several gales of |
the Palace before he managed to gain access to the pic- j
ture gallery. Had he enterpd ten minutes sooner, the
Queen would have been passing to hpr bed room. De
fendant, who is evidently a lunatic, was orderpd to find
sureties to keep the peace for the future; in default, he
was eent to the Totlnll fields House of Correction. The
man is of a respectable family, and has for many years
been connected in the jewellery line with one of the
first firms in London. [We received this from the reporter
who usually furnished the accounts of what takes
place at the Queen square Police office. If it be true,
we question whether there is another lady in the country
so negligently served as the Quern ; and certainly
no time should be lost in providing Her Majesty with
attendants whose watchfulness will guard her against
the possibility of similar visits from madmen, who may
be as mischievous as this poor creature seems to be harm
less ]
Marshal Soclt's Visit to Vauxiiall ?Ypsterday
Marshal Soult honored Vauxhall gardens with his
presence to witness the ascent of the great Nassau Eal
loon. The announcement, in the advertisements and
the placards that the Marshal would be present caused
a great influx to the gardens of very genteel company.
Jt waB said that nearly 10,01)0 persons were present.?
Within the enclosure was a number of lashionable and
scientific persons; the fire-work gallery was filled pr ncipally
with ladies, and the whole assembly presented a
pleasing and animated appearance. Ihe balloon, which
was inflated within the new building erected ul the back
of the enclosure, on the site of the fire work tower, when
filled was brought out into the middle of the enclosure?
and every preparation made for the ascent with extraordinary
despatch and facility, fahortly before G Marshal
Soult arrived in the gardens. Me did not oppear
to be generally known, and it wns not until he
reached the enclosure that the spectators were aware
of the presence of the illustrious visiter. Me was then
greeted with cheers. The Marshal was taken by the
proprietors into the inner circle, immediately enclos
ing the balloon, and appeared to tnke great interrest
in every thing connected with it, and the ascent ?
Within a few minutes alter his arrival the ascent took
place. In the car were Mr. Green,a son of Mr. Hughes
of Vauxliall, and five other persons. The ascent was
very fine, the sky being clear, and the wind blowing tolerably
Iresh. The balloon took a direction almost similar
to its course at the last ascent, viz : towards the county
of Kssex. Marshal tsoult, alter surveying tlie aerial
monster lor soon? minutes during its course, retired by a
private way from the enclosure. Me was again cheered
by the spectators. The gardens on this occasion were
decorated with tri colored flags arid appropriate devices,
and flre-worlts with devices in honour of the illustrious
warrior were exhibited in the evening.
We have lately passed through a considerable pnrt of
the country, atid the crops are so improved hy the hte
weather, that the change is hardly to be conceived ?
The crops of hay are superabundant, and wheat looks
at least ns fine as anv we remember. Upon the whole,
we are quite satisfied, no less by inquiry than observation.
that the crop of Norfolk will bo fully an overage,
and probably mote ihan an average ?.Yurtrie/i paper.
In the neighborhood of Lewes, hay-making is progressing
briskly, both in seeds and meadow. 'I'he former
ore generally good, but the latter on the high lands
are short, in ihe brooks and low lands they are better ?
In the vicinity o( Chailev the good effect of using the
drum plough 14 inches deep arid a rod apart is particularly
striking; where this machine has been employed the
crop is good, but otherwise it is indifferent. At Hurtshorns,
the property of Lord Abinger, the drains have i
stood fourteen years and seem to be in an excellent state, I
the drams wanting occasionally to be open at the ends !
The last favorable rains huve brought forward the wheat !
crops, which appear strong nnd healthy in the Weald i
on the Down farms they are generally thin, but the bar- j
ley and oat crops are good ?Sussex Express.
The weather during the past week has been splendid i
in the highest degree for the operations of the landed '
interests From every quarter we hear of the fields !
being filled with plenty; and that on every side " the
little hills nie shouting aloud for j"y." Although some
weeks must yet elapse ere we can shout the "harvest '
home," still there is much room for thankfulness to :
linn who ts author of sped time and harvest; for having !
favored iisso lar, considering that we had or.e of the most ;
inclement nnd unprnpiiious winters and springs ever re- !
inembered. and which naturally engendered doubts as to
the realization of anything like average crop. ]n n,?8i >
of the southern counties we find that the wheat is in 1
full ear, and looks much inoro promising linn it did
three weeks ago?it is said " beyond all expectation '
in Kent. There is every prospect of nn average crop j
'I'he same rprnark applies to oats and barley. Turnips, !
beans, and pens are looking beautiful and growing at a '
rapid rate. Of the hay crop we can confidently state 1
it is generally abundant, and that, if the weather con- I
tinue favorable, it will be secured in excellent condition.
The clover crops are especially heavy. Sotilli
of Nottingham a great deal of hay is now cut, and this j
week's weather has enabled the farmers of the South- i
ern and midland cminti-s to lead an immense quantity
ot' hay in good condition, and llmne north of Trent to !
cut the grass and put it in a ?latc of forwardness.
[I.e.fds jtnpcr. j
Frrrot.K?Never did the crops of wheat, barley, oats,
beans, or pens, appear in a more flourishing condition I
than in most parts of this county at the present time. )
The apple crops throughout this and the adjoining
county will be a complete fniluie this year, the orchards
looking as if struck by lightning. Cider is rising rapidly ;
in price, and the rnalsters arc consequently looking forward
to an advance of price ?H'oietsler Journal.
(From the London Times. July Id j
The Smyrna Journal of the 30th ult.brings intelligence i
from Alexandria to the J7ih inst. incisive. The projects
of the Viceroy still gave rise to rnuiy conjectures. j
It appeared, however, positive that lie wss determined ,
on striking a decisive blow, and had only been deterred j
from his purp<>s? by the remonstrances o'. the foreign j
Consuls. He hnpes that the Cabinets of Europe, to |
whom he lias notified Ins intentions, will approve bis j
conduct, and, under that impression, lie continued his !
warlike preparations with as much activity as if he were I
to take Hie field in a fortnight. Those, who know iiis
haughty disposition cannot believe that lie has willingly j
consented to renounce his design and to relinquish his ;
ambitious projects They think that he will contrive to
elude his engagements by some artful evasion, relying
on success to appease afterwards the foreign powers.?
With this object he has had frequent interviews with the j
European Consuls. On the arrival of she last English
packet from Syria, the Consuls of England and Austria ;
icpaired to the palace, and remained cb'-setted ivuh him
a long time.
The Egyptian army in Syria, under the orders of Solitnan

Morr. Indian .Murdrrs?On Wednrsduy morning last,
two more of our citizens fell victims to savage barba- 1
ritv. A Mr. Lasley, residing about firtern or twenty ! '
miles from Tallaliassee, on the Uclockuee river, when j 1
returning to his work from breakfast, discovered a nurn- j
her of Indians on Iris plantation. Hp, with his son. re- > 1
treated to the house, followed by the Indiana, but sue- I '
eroded in defending his dwelling till about one o'clock, j
when the savages retired a short distance in the woods, j
Supposing it safe to retreat, the family left the house, I
but had proceeded only a short distance, when they were
overtaken by the Indiana. Mr. Lnsley and his daughter
shot down, and the son received a ball through the hand.
Two young men sneceeded in making their escape ?
The number of Indians was stated at fifty or sixty. We j
think the nunibpr exaggerated.
Governor Call has taken such measures as are in his
power to give defence to the frontier of Leon and Gads
den counties, and if possible, prevent the Creeks from
effecting their escape to lhp Seminnles, as is no doubt
their intention. Cnpt. Walker's company at Shell Point,
lias been ordered to scout the country on tlie line from
llic point to Mr AllijJbod's plantation, about six miles
from Ibis city.? He has also called lorn force from Gads*
tieii. and it is probable that Major Taylor's battalion now
stationed on the Uscilla frontier will clso "o in pursuit
of the Creeks.
The Governor received, by express, early yesterday
morning, information from Major Taylor, that Ins coin*
matid would be discharged from the service by Major
Dearborn; in which event they have hern ordered by the
Governor to report to him at this place, when they will \
he employed against the Creeks Jt is probable that
Col Green of the sixth Regiment, rcc nlly arrived from
Green Ray, will receive the troops into the service of
the United Slates. Col. Green is charged with the command
of the defence of Middle Florida, ond is a highly
eliicient olfrer. At nil events we are assured that the |
frontier will lie defended, "bod protection given our cili- j
z-ns?ifnot by the United Slates authorities, at least by ;
me territorial.
On Friday last, a scout from Captain Mutter's com- !
mnncJ, then at thp innutli of the Oclockner, discovered j
three canoes of Indians, principally women and children, j
making ihrir way down the river. Captain II imme- i
diutely ordered a company to a point where the passage j
of the boats could be intercepted; but on approaching j
the bank nf the river, the troops were fired upon by In- i
dians secreted on the opposite hank. The fire was j '
promptly returned, nnd the Indians fled. The command j
having no boats, were compelled to retire about thirty :
miles, and again return nearly the smnc distance?Pur- !
suit was not given until Saturday. Capt. Mutter was '
in hopes of overtaking Iho fugitives when last heard
from.? Floridi'in.

Indians near Home ?\\e have received the following
letter from our old.giog correspondent, the Editor of
the Brunswick Advocate:
Dear Sir?I have just learned from an authentic source,
of the murder nf two families, in Ware county, by the I
Indians. Mr. Wilde anil family were murdered on the
]7lh inst ,and Mr John Davis nnd family, on the tMtli,
not more than it) or i."> miles from Waynesville.
Mr. Davis is, I believp, well known, having formerly
hren a member of the Legislature.
These murders were perpetrated by five Indians,
whose trail was followed by the neighbors into the Oke
fenokee swamp, where they found the trails so large, I
and indicating the vicinity of so many Indians, t hat they
were obliged to return They estimate that tlieie are |
as many as four or live hundred in the swamp. Great [
excitement prevails in Ware and Camden on the sub j
jer.l of these murders,and-from Waynesville an express
has been despatched to obtain particular information ;
and a meeting of llie citizens is to be held to morrow,
to take such measures as lire urgency of the case may

.Military Changes?An order of the Chief Engineer,
Brigadier-General Gratiot, of' the 1st uf August, relieves
Mnj'>r Delafield, of the Corps of Engineers, from the
superintendence of the works now under Ins charge, and
assigns him to the command and superintendence of the
Military Academy at West Point.
Lieut. Col. DeRttssy, at his own request, is relieved
from the superintendence of the Militaiy Academy, and i
is assigned to the superintendence of the works on the |
Delaware, now under Major Delafield, viz: The Dela- j
ware Breakwater. Forts Delaware and Mil'Iin, the Mar !
bor of New Castle. Chester, Marcus /look, and Port i
Penn, and the improvement of the Christiana'River. i
Capt Dulton relieves Major Delafield of the works ro- j
maining to complete the Cumberland Road east of Die j
Ohio, being the cast iron bridge over Dunlap's creek at
Brownsville; and Capt. Fied. A. Smith relieves him of j
the superintendence of Fort McHenry, and works of \

Tiie Akmv?West Point ?The annexed General
Orders announce several important changes and appoint- i
nienls. We are curious to learn what the rank and arm
nf "Lieut. Col. It. A". Fierce. Major of first Artillery,"
really are, now that he has declined the promotion into
the Stli Regiment of Infantry. Is it to be understood
that the designation used in this order is the true one, ,
and that Lieut. Col Pierce is still Major of the 1st Re- i
giment ot Artillery? If so, what becomes of the newly
promoted Major who has accepted?
Lieut. Col. Dp Russv is. it will be aeon, relieved from
duty at bia own request at West Point, and Major Dela- >
field is appointed in his place. We confess our disappointment
in this matter, not because of doubt, as to
Major Delafield'a general capacity?for hp is a well educated
and intelligent officer?hut because Col Thayer
possesses, in our judgment, in a remarkable degree, those 1
peculiar qualities of mind and temperament that fit a
man for Ilie very difficult and responsible station of Su- j
prrintendent of the West Point Academy- Greatsteadi |
ners, great self-possession, great firmness, unquesliona- <
hie impartiality, and inexorable justice, united to scien- i
title acquirements of a high order, go to make up his rare j
character?and it is just such a character that such a
school requires It was, too, the general understanding, '
that Col. Thayer would resume that station. We know
not what has brought about the rbange, but we are sure |
it is to be regretted.?A" V. American.

Tiir Supreme Court.?It is probably not known to
most of our readers?for until yesterday it was not
known to us?that there is a Rule Term of the Supreme
Court held, according to law, at the Court Room in the
Capitol annually on the first Monday in August. At this
Court it is made the business of the Circuit Judge for
the Fourth Judicial District to attend. For msny years
past, the business of this Court lias been entirely pro forma.
requiring neither argument by counsel, nor decision
by ihe Court; and the attendance of the Judge has not always
been deemed necessary. We understand, however,
that Chief Justice Taney. now Judge of the 4th Circuit,
will be on the Bench on Monday next, the term day; and
that the highly interesting case of the removal from office,
avowedly without cause, of the Clerk of flic Circuit
Court for the District of Louisiana, will come before
him. upon a motion to show cause why a writ oi vianiUthus
should not issue to ihat Court to restore the oid
Clerk to the discharge of the duties of his ollice.

Supreme Court ok the U States?The lion, R.
15. '1 aiiev, Chief Justice, opened the August term of the
Supreme Court, in pursuance of the law. An application
was marie on behalf of Duncan .V li-nneii for a
writ of Mandamus, to be directed to the Judge of the
District Court of the United Slates for the Eastern District
of Louisiana, commanding the said Judge tu regime
the petitioner to the office of Clerk of said Court.
A similar application was made for a mandamus, to be
riirpctrdto the Judges of the Circuit Courtofthe United
Stales for the Eastern District of Louisiana, commanding
them to restore the same gentleman to the ollice of Clerk
of the Circuit Court. The petition was read by Rtchaid
S. Coxe, Esq , counsel for petitioner.
This petition having been read, upon motion by Mr.
Coxe, the Court granted rules in both cases, relurnab'e
to the ensuing term of the Supreme Court, to be held in
January next, upon the parties, to show cause why the
wrils as applied for should not be awaided?reserving to
the parties the right to move for a rescinding of the rules.
After transacting some other business, the Court adjourned
to the next term.
A New Question?Application was made to the late
Circuit Court of the IJ S for the District of Ohio, for
an injunction to restrain the Stale of Ohio from throwing
a dnin across the Maumre river, which, it seems, is
necessary in cairyingout her system of canals. The
ground of the application is, that the Ordinance of 17c7
' declares the Maumeetnbea navigable river," and that
the proposed dam is lilcly to destroy or injure its navirrnfmn

At the Convention of the Banks of Ohio, held hi this

to fix the day, and give information to caeh of

of Philadelphia and Ballimoie have resumed, after said

Believing that the Banks of Massachusetts, Rhode
Island. Connecticut, Pennsylvania, Virginia. Kentucky,
and Baltimore, will, under a resolution adopted at a
Convention of Banks held at Philadelphia on the 23d
ultimo, resume the payment of their bills in specie on
the 13th of August instant: and believing that sound
policy requires of the Ohio Banks to resume simultaneously
with them, the undersigned, by virtue of the au

Louisiana Ei.rcTinjr ?The New Orleans Courier of
July 25th, mentions that notwithsianding the result of
the recent election in the State of Louisiana, the vote of
that State will be given to the Democratic candidate for
Presiuent. Louisiana always supported the Democratic
candidate for that office, although she often elects a Governor
of the opposite parly. In regard to the returns
this print says:
"The election, so far as the official returns have been
received, give Roman a majority of five hundred and
ninety two votes over Prieur?two parishes to be heard
r NT _ . _ i . _ _i i P.JJ. 1.: _ I. :j t _ 1
rrnnij iiaicmionics unu v/nuuu, winch are ?iu 10 nave
given Roman 223 majority. If this be tbe case, Roman's
majority is c?IT>?a small majority indeed, if it be
taken inln consideration that the democracy had against
Ihern bank intlnencp and tl)p purchased votes of vagabonds.
Hut notwithstanding all this, if our candidate
had not been taken sick at the very moment when his
presence was most nppded in the country, his election
would have been cer'ain.
"As to the assertion that Louisiana is a Whig State because
she has elected a governorand a majority of Whig
renresenlativps, it is preposterous. It is to be regretted
lhatshe has done so; hut, considering the means resorted
to, our defeat may be considered as an earnest of our
success hereafter."
The Confdtntitil Letter?Our readers will recollect
that Mr Adams, in the course of his long speech in the
House of Representatives on ihe Texas question, read a
letter addressed by Gen. Jackson, when President, to
Win. Fulton, Esq, then Secretary of the Treasury of
A rkansas
This tetter was dated Dec 20, 1820. It was on the
subject of the expected insurrection in Tpxas, and advised
the adoption of measures to prevent the fitting out
of expediiions in the 11. S. in aid of the insurrection.
As the letter was marked 'strictly confidential,' and
contained expressions indicating that the sending of it
was a "private and not an official act," considerable cu
riosity was excited to know how it came into the possession
of Mr. Adams.
An inquiry was proposed by Mr. Howard to ascertain
the fact, hut by some misunderstanding of a rule of the
House, the inquiry was not made. From the N. Intelligencer
of this rooming, however, we learn that the
letter was communicated to Mr. Adams by Mr. Robert
Mayo, a cletk in one of the bureaus of the War Department.
The letter, (the original draft of the one sent)
fell into Mr. Mayo's hands accidentally?having been
sent to him, inadvertently, along with other document*
from the Piesidenl's house.
Mr. Mayo's ideas of propriety did not dictate the re
turn of it, and accordingly he retained it to use as circumstartces
might require, influenced in this, he says, by his
regard for the "national interest." He was yesterday
discharged from his place in the bureau, by order of the
Secretary of Yin.?Baltimore Transcript.
