Scenes in London! U
It is astonishing, that if Mr. Stevenson's appearance y
it the coronation "showed a degree of vulgarity which v
ia? been the vnitersnl talk of the Unlink Metropolis," a
h* Correspondent of the JV. Y Nncs should have been b
h'* only person to give it currency. The London Cor- tj
^.' pondeot of the Charleston Courier speaks in a very d
lifferent strain. He says: w
"No wonder that the English people should be enthu- o
liastic in thrir applause at such an exciting moment, tr
vhen even Americans found themselves carried away h
>v the force of their feelings, and joining in the cheers T
vhich so enthusiastically greeted the youthful Queen w
in her way to and from the Abbey. The establishment ci
if the American Minister, if of a less gorgeous andim- a
losing appearance than those of the representatives of g
nany of the crowned heads of Europe, was nevertheless n
n perfect keeping with the unostentatious and repubican
habits of our countrymen. Mr. Stevenson and ei
lis lady, who rode in one of these carriages, were acompanied
by Mr. Van Buren, son of the President, V
vliilst his Secretaries and attaches occupied another. If w
?e might judge from the cheering of the people whilst fr
he procession was passing, we should say that the at
)uchessof Kent, the mother of the Queen, and her un- P1
le, the Duke of Sussex, were the most popular of the c<
loyal Family. if
"The illuminations on the night of the Coronation, S
vere indeed upon a splendid scale?and until a very tr
ste hour of the night, the entire population of the city P
rid its vicinity appeared to be in motion to witness P1
hem. Carriages of all descriptions were in requisition, w
md as high as ten guineas were paid for the use of one 9t

rle, grasping in its talons the olive brancli and the b
urows, and bearing the national motto, '? Plurilius 1

fine effect. Not to be behind the rest, the inmates of

the one hand, supporting the British standard, with the (
Goddess of Liberty on the other, sustaining that of the
United States, and both supporting a laurel wreath, in ^
the centre of which were the letters V. R and upon a j
scroll below, the words - Peace. Plenty and Prosperity.' " j
The Editor of the New York Herald repeats the idle
story about Mr. John Van Bureri's mission?and the ^
Baltimore Chronicle repeats after the Herald. He as- ?
serts it as "an absolute fact that young Van Buren I ^
arrived here on a congratulatory mission to the young ,
Queen on her approaching coronation," A,c., Ac? I (
"It seems, however, that young John's mission, not being ^
authorized by the Laws and Constitution of the United , (
States, is kept a secret here. This matter has been ful- j
ly explained to the Queen's court, and John figures in j
the newspapers, balls. &c., principally on his own respon- j
sibility. On tlie evening of the ball, the beautiful Queen | ,
exprassed a wi?h to talk to liiin, and John, 1 ain told, ac- ; j
quitted himself very well, and made a great impression j
on her Majesty."
The Albany Argus contradicted the whole fable.some j t
time ago?and we since understand from the beet au- j
thority, that Mr John Van Buren has gone to England j
on so me professional business, connected with the claim i
of Mr. Clark, 0} New York ?But the press will conti- j r
nue to bubble and draw on the Fancy, instead of fuels, j t
The N. Y. Star gives us one of its airy speculations ,
on the South. It denies, that there has been "either di- ,
rectly or indirectly any intercourse with Mr. Van Buren, 4l
(and Mr. Calhoun,)or that there is any personal or politi- ,
r;i! iinf'erstanCinu hp! wren 1 hem " X- r Sn fur we hnve ' .
no doubt, the Star if? in the right ?It proceeds to say, that
"Mr Calhoun considers Mr. V B's case as hopeless," <V:c !
And then comes the gist of the plot: "It is probable
that Mr. Calhoun designs to take advantage of Mr. Van
Buren's forlorn position by pushing Southern interests
as they are called, and concentrating the power of the
South for the succession, joined to what Mr. V Buren's
is supposed to command in the North, taking V. B s Sub
Treasury or divorce scheme, which, not from political,
but commercial objects, is rather popular in the South " j
If such be Mr Calhoun's calculation, we agree with the j
Star, that events "will prove its utter fallacy "?But the j
Star is mistaken in supposing that Virginia, N Carolina,
die.,&c., are going for a "Southern President." As the J
sign" now are, the Republicans of the South will go again v
for Mr. V B?and that they will be convinced of the necessity
of uniting their ranks in his favor?The Star as- j c
serts, that Maine, Massachusetts, Vermont, Rhode Island, n
Connecticut, N. York, N. Jersey, Delaware, Maryland, t
Kentucky,Tennessee,Oiiio, lndianaand Mississippi will s
not vote for him, and we inay confidently add Pennsylva- nia."
This is the Wliig cant?and the only difference be- t
tween the Star and the other presses is, that itspeaks with t
more reckless audacity, than the rest of them. What they c
wish to consider ns probable, the Star affirms as certain g
They all count without their host. The last Madisoni- j
and appeals to us also in the same key. It piediotn, that
Mr V. Baren can nevercarry N. York again,nor lVnnsyl- f,
rania,&c., nor Maine,Connecticut,N Jersey, Louisiana, j,
and even ventures to include the Old Dominion. We
smile at litis last suggestion. We do not hesitate to say, r
that Mr. Van Buren will carry Virginia, against tiie |
Whig Candidate, and the N. Bank, any day?nod we r
doubt any man s sagacity or information which makes ?
Buch idle calculations. I
The Star and the Madieonian so far pull together, that 0
th<?y are both opposed to Mr. Van Buren. The apparent j
difference at present between them is, that the Star goes f
for a Whig candidate?but the Mad soiiian affects to per- j
Boade us, "to bring forward a new candidate, *ho has i 0
never committed himseif to the abominable doctrines of r
the Loco Focos," &c , &c. W ill the Madisonian be ' ?
pleased to point out the Republican candidate who is as 1 c
strong as Mr Van Buren* We know no such man?To g
call for any other candidate is. therefore, ridiculous. The v
issue is to be between Clay with the National Bank, and ' |
Van Buren without it?And upon tins issue, we are as
sure as that there is a sun in the Heavens, that the Madi- ' f
sonian will cn operate with the N Y- Times and pprhaps n
the Cincinnati Republican, in supporting Mr. C. To this ^
complexion they will probably coine at last?and how- I r
ver the Madisonian,and the Star,arid the Whig presses, j ^
may seem to differ at present; however the former may j
talk of its distinct political organization, or of its new ),
candidate, the probability is, that "however nice is the a
line which severs them" atfpresent, they will at last be c
round in the same ranks, contending for Henry Clay, as s
President of the U S. c
As for what the Madisonian says of us, we have for a r
some time "bowed in submission" to a separation between j
as"which csnnot be avoided." It has carried its opposi- v
Lion to the Sub Treasury so far, as to denounce Mr V B , d
and declare war against him We on the other hand, have (,
i^en the precipice on which the Madisonian stands, and j d
from which it is rapidly falling into the abyss of Whigisrn. 1 n
We differ vrith Mr. V. B on the Sub Treasury; but ad ; o
bere in every respect to the ground of the Special Deposi'.e I i
which we have taken from the delivery of hi* Extra Me*- i r
rags. We have opposed the Sub Treasury, (the only rn- i n
portant question on which we have differed with the ; j.
Administration ) We still go for the Special Depnsite [ g
system?-On this point, we hive nut "given in (our) ad- j b
lesion to the powers that be."?But with this exception, j v
we have supported Mr. Van Buren?and will not fall ?
nto the arms of the Whigs, Clay and the National i o
Bank?but avoiding all further di.-sension, which may j d
irise from the starling of a "A'tie Candidate," will at j ii
empt to keep our party together, that we may contribute i r;
Lo defeat Mr. Clay and the monstrous Institution, of j,
which he has become the champion. j n
The Madisonian pursues ostensibly a different policy. tl
[f it runs a third candidate, it will nltimately join the 1
Whig Party, which wedeem the most probable; or by tak- a
ng votes enough from Mr V. Buren, indirectly assist to c
?l?r? Mr CIpiv?nr. if it does select a third candidate 1 u
md should adhere to him, and he should obtain a few d
Electoral votes, throw the election into the H of R , to n
which the friends of Mr. Clay are "no'hing loath " ti
The Alexandria Gazette does not display its usual jus- c
ice or liberality, when it speaks of our mystifying mat- ; M
:ers?and still less when it says, we are "on the side of j q
('nicer." What would the Gazette have us to do? It ! |Y
lays we will go for the Administration, Sub Treasury or tt
aot?and that we ought to let our former "Conservative ! v
Tiends see (otir) hands and know (our) game " Where j ft
a the mystification we have practised? We tell the a
uonservativpji?we have told tliera so from the begin- I p
ling of the chapter?we are against the Sub-Treasury? j
iut we will not go for a third Candidate: that we op- j
joae this measure of Mr. Van Buren only; and that we !
will not raise an opposition, which, by defeating him, tl
Kill secure the election of a Whig, and the establish- j1
nent of a National Bank?What mystery is there in all ''
his? Would the Gazette have us to join it, in running j n
n Mr. Clay ? in establishing a National Bank? Is this | Cl
vhat the Gazette would call Refojjn? We say over and j tf
iver again, that if the issue be between Mr. Clay and \ e:
he Bank?and Mr. V. B and the Sub-Treasury, we go 31
inhesilatingly for the latter?not because we wish to be P
'on the 6ide of Power;" but because upon ourownprin- *'
tiplea, we can never swallow Mr. Clay or the Bank? s<
nuch lesa Mr. Clay asn the Bank. Would the Gazette v
>n its part, abandon Mr. Clay, because it happened to P
lifier in one respect from him? b
"We heard it intimated thiitthey (the President's manners) were
itht-r eo/d when ".Mr. V. B." received the Enquirer. Possibly,"tlie | ,
weet little fi-llow" had beard that the best in.thod of making a dog r
t> come to you is to throw a stone at hiin, and he was perhaps acting tc
n the same principle on ibul occasion."?Rtthmond M kig. ^ g
The ^hig is true to its vocation?But the intimation, tI
vhich it circulates, is not correct. We never found Mr.
f. B. more cordial. The possible inference, therefore, ||
vhich it drawa, is as true as its premises?The Presilent
"cordial" to the Enquirer? Ah ! then he intended ri
eduction. This is possibly the next ground the Whig 3l
nay aeaume.?But who cares for such commentators? w
The Drought?and the Corn Crop. |
Papers in different parts of the country continue to ''
;ive gloomy descriptions of the Corn Crop ?The "Char- w
ottesville Republican" of Wednesday last stales, that "
hey had been lately vhited by a copious shower in A I- '3
ernarle, but adds, "we have had since a second edition P
f the hot weather, that preceded the shower-?Monday u
?sl was, we believe as hot a day as we have had thlu I
ear; it being court day, we had an opportunity of con- h
ersing with the Farmers from all parts of the county, o
nd the complaint is general with th'-in that there will w
e but a small crop of corn made this year in this vicini- a
f. Several informed us that there had not been such a ll
rought since the year ISOG; that year, like the present,
'as distinguished for its intense heat and drought, hut p
ne shower of rain fell in the couse of the whole sum- w
ler. This year rain fell the first week in June, and we w
ave since had none of any consequence until Inst week. bi
here is every appearance thai the dry arid arid weather T
ill continue, and all of us in this region despair of the n
>rn crop. A bountiful Providence has supplied us with bi
rich and an abundant harvest of wheal, and other small n
rain, which will prevent lite people from wanting the
ecesaaries of life."
The Cenlreville (Md ) Tillies statea, that "ourexperi- h
ace o ten years' farming, gives us no parallel to the pre- ai
nt season, either as regards its dryness, or great heat. w
fitltin the past or present week, we have conversed n
ith persons from various parts of the Eastern Shore, I*
um Delaware, and Irom Pennsylvania, and it has been hi
i dry iri those places as it Ins been with us. Our pa- P'
frs from Washington, Frederick, Kent nnd Talbot j 1
sunties, Maryland, complain of the dryness of the wea- s'
ler, and the failing of the corn crop. Worcester and
omerset counties, on the Eastern Slmre, and the dis- "
ict along Magothy.on the Western Shore, are the only P
laces in the State, it is probable, that have not been Cl
arched up. We had some rain on Tuesday night, f
hich will assist the latter corn should it continue sea- nahle?
all foiwardcorn has been irretrievably injured. "
lot little corn will be told front litis shore next year." "
The Kent Bugle says, that " a very large portion of ?
lis crop is past all benefit, let the present month he as "
'asonable as it possibly could be, under the most favor- 11
le circumstances " "
The Charleston Courier publishes a letter from Aiken, 11
f the 1st inst, which says, thai "The country between h
Charleston and Aiken, along the line of rail-road, is suf- J'
'ring greatly from drought?lite growing corn in many J1
laces is almost parched up. Cotton, of course, looks "
etler, ns it loves sunshine more than shower or shade. "
"he drought has also extended to this place, where it has P
lot rained for several weeks." j ^

" Mirscci.ous FsfArr?As the half past five o'clock a

tumbled and threw the boy on the middle of the track

I ask a brief apace, in a column of the Enquirer, for a
?? observation* in connection with those I made in the
inquirer of the 31st of July. j ,
In that note of the writer.it will be perceived that he , (
egsrris the question of choice between a United H'aUg '
lank and the Sub-Treasury scheme, as being one which r
solves itself into the comparative dinners of the sooner f
retting rid of the one or the othei of them, in case of v
he adoption of either; and, of course, that he is strenu- t
iusly opposed to the adoption of either. ' s
Exclude a U S Bank and the Sub Treasury scheme *
rotn the range of selecting a fit scheme for the conduct
ng of the Federal finances, and the question arises, irhal (
rt the su mettled eiltcrneit/res lift, from which to make a
lioicer They are ''the Special Deposit* system," and j
the (icncrul Deposite system," and in either, a using of j
tale banks Choosing between these, which, if liiP ^
igns of the times be consulted, are the alternatives of
vhich one must be elected, the writer would prefer the a
atter. ; a
I have no disposition to find fiult,or to magnify the j
bulls found, with the suggested scheme ofspecial deposites
f the national revenue, in selected State banks. Hut 1 j(
ipg leave to make a single reflection on it. Of all the j
nanv forms in which this special scheme has been f
irought forth, there is but one in which it could be made
o work at nil. much less work well That is this: Col- ,
pet the Federal revenues in convertible State hank notes, c
nd at short periods, say of CO days, con vert the amount of j
ollected notes into specie, and place it on special drpoite
with the selected Slate hanks This manner of ape- f
lal deposites.it is true, would he practicable, if. indeed,
esncc'.able State hanks would tinder'ake the service ?
f so, it would yet he objectionable in three respects, to '
vit: 1st. It has for its foundation a want of confi- ^

ie converted into specie, and this be put on special
lepnsite, the commercial community will be deprived
f the use of the revpnue raised from commerce; and ^
;.-d In the event of a suspension of specie payments,
Ins manner of special deposileg would enable the Kede- '
al Government to fare betipr than the State Govern- j
rients, being depositors of the State funds in the same
nstitutions; and le-lter than the citizens of any given
itate or of other Slates, who may be the holder* of th* ^
arik's notes, at the time of its suspending, iiefore I
rould adopt any system, which, in any event, would !
ive an exclusive advantage to the Federal Government j
ver the States, all using the same institutions, I wou'd , 1
ispute every inch of ground, and if forced at last tore- j (|
real, the last intrtnchment of S'nte Rights and of the j
ights of the citizen, should he the assailed and (otter |
ng citadel, from which, till I found in it a grave, I would |
lake war on the unequal system, giving advantage to ^
lie Federal Government. r'
A word as to the general deposite system. Has it had ; |7
fair trial ? No intelligent man will say it has. who re- |
ollects, as all do, that a vigorous and unrelenting war ; ?
as waged on it, from the time of ''the removal of the j c
eposites." till the banks suspended in May, Jcl37, by i *"
ie whole Whig party. And notwithstanding the ex- j
aordinary difficulties this genpral deposite system en- \
ountered, preventing a fair trial, even those of the De- j ?
tocratic Republican party, who now support the Sub- ' *
'reasury scheme, did, till the Prrsidenl delivered his i
lessage at the extra session, proclaim from the house I "
>ps, that the Stale bank dpposite system had not only |
rorked well, but had done wonders. The most clearjoted
horse will sometimes stumble in a stumpy road; j
nd if he be a good one, his owner would he ;oolish to ; P

Extraordinary Electrical Phenomena?A most i
ngular appearance in the heavens is described in the
tarrollton, (Miss ,) Enquirer, as having been witnessed
i that neighborhood on the night of the 20th ult. For i
tme time previous there had been an excessive drought. |
In that night about S o'clock, the air became clouded, |
ie clouds running generally South, and for two hours
lere was a conlinuui discharge of electricity all around (
ie horizon. "During this incessant corruscalion," says
ie Enquirer, "there shot from the pointed clouds a brilant
voilev of sparks.exceedingly bright. Some falling
rwards thp earth; others running in a zigzag course,
rossing nearly the whole finniment. These luminous
narks shot forth sometimes largely and singly, and at
lber6 branching out in every direction in the most splenid
arborescent manner. W'e are told, for we did not
witness it, that the scene was one of the most gorgeot is
and beautiful ever witnessed. The whole atmovphpr e
appeared uncommonly charged with the electric fluid-the
radiant flashes assumed s'linelirnea the form of wave s
of light, rolling with velocity athwart the heavens, an d
are said to have been painful to the eye from their fre quency.
These sparks, which were vividly brilliant,
resembled larwe balls of tire, suddenly struck with a
hammer, and flying about in the most fantastic manner.
Others have compared them to the sparks sometimes
produced by the blow pipe on metal heated to intensity."
