This news is of great importance to the mer
cantile community, ipatmuch as it indicates
an improvement in the markets both for cotton
and breadstuff, and imports that money is more
plentiful than it has been for many years.— j
Consols have gone up nearly to par, a thing
that has not happened for many years.
The London Times, of the 16th ult., passes
a high encomium upon the New York clipper
abip Witch of the Wave, which had made the
run from Canton to the Downs in ninety days,
■with a cargo of great value. She lay in the
East India Docks, at London, where she was
daily visited by great numbers of persons.—
Her performance had created most intense
excitement, on excitement which was indeed
almost national. This affords another proof,
if another were wanting, of the deep interest
which the English take iq the progress of our
marine,commercial as wfll as war.
The political news is of little interest, save
in so far as it is said that the Emperor of Rus
sia has proclaimed the Due de Chambord the
successor of Louis Napoleon, under the title
of King Henry V. He may proclaim until
doomsday, but it is not in his power to fasten
upon France, the most powerful military na
tion on earth—a nation fully competent to
meet all Europe in arms, provided only she
■toy at borne—the detested and all-detestable
family of Bourbon ; that family, of whom Na
poleon said, on their restoration, "lis n'ont rien
appris, rien oublie,'' "they have learned noth
ing, and forgotten nothing." A race so utterly
incapable of profiting by experience, as they
have shown themselves to be, cannot be sus
tained upon the throne of France by all the
bayonets of all the despots in Europe. In the
mean time, it makes the blood of a republican
boil, to hear a despot at one end of Europe,
prescribing to forty million of human beings,
over whom he has no 6ort of control, at the
other, the manner in which it pleases him that
they shall be governed.
The New York Herald publishes a statisti
cal article from a gentleman connected with the
Treasury Department, with respect to the sup
ply of the precious metals afforded to the world,
since the discovery of America in 1492. From
that document, we learn that Humboldt, Ja
cobs, McCullock and others, have made the
following estimate:
Ist—Humboldt's estimate, $5,447,900,000
McCullock's do. . 350,000,000
Jacob's do. . 403,603,800
McCullock's do. . t76,330,000
Total (America) . $6,877,833,800
2d—Humboldt's estimate of the
annual production (1803) of
Hungary, Saxony and North
ern Asia, is $5,000,000; and
without any means of ascer
taining the productions of pre
vious years, let that be taken
as the average from 1492 to
1802, inclusive, say . $1,555,000,000
To which add the estimates of
the same mines by McCullock
for 50 years . . . 200,000,000
Total (Europe and Asia) $1,755,000,000
3d—The product of the gold
mines of Russia, according to
McCullock, was, up to 1852, 191,581,000
And of the silver by the same
author to 1852 . . . 22,000,000
Total (Russia alone) . $213,581,000
4th—The product of the United
States other than California, '
being, by the mint returns,
$15,855,000, add $1,145,000
for an estimate of the amounts
not brought to the Mint, and
the result iS . . . $17,000,000
To which add the actual and
estimated produie of Califor
nia , 150,000,000-
Total (United States) . $167,000,000
General Total . . . $9,013,414,800
Humboldt's estimate extended to 1803.
Mighty as these sums appear to be, they are
but trifles compared to those whith may be ex
pected to pour in upen the commercial world
for an indefinite period, if we are to judge from
the returns every week received from Califor
nia and Australia. The revolution which this
all powerful talisman has wrought in both
these countries, within the last few years, ap
pears like a dream. But five years ago, Cali
fornia was comparatively a desert, inhabited
by a few miserable, half-starved savages, or by
white men whose condition wag not a great
deal better. Now it has large towns, teems
with population, is all alive with, industry,
and by means of its wealth, in some sort,
✓■controls the operations of the whole world.—
The developments in Australia are still more
wonderful. But one year ago, it was known to
us as a great penal colony, the receptacle of all
the villainy of all the large towns of Great
Britain. It was known that a better class of
emigrants were gradually filling up the island,
and developing its resources; but it was be
lieved that it would require ages to bring it to
maturity. The discovery of immense fields of
gold has wrought a change as sudden, and as
brilliant, as is produced by the wizard Macal
lister, when merely by firing a pistol, he lights
up his magic hall, and makes it glow in all the
splendor of an enchanted castle. Gold is car
ried from Australia, not by ounces, or by
pounds, but by tons. The estimate for the en
suing year, made from the present average
weekly produce, and taking all obstructions
into consideration, is not less than $66 to $80,-
000,000. The returns from California indicate
that the gold crop in that quarter will uot fall
bshind,if it does not exceed, tbe estimate for
Australia. It is generally believed that the
Czar, from the Ural mountains, and from Sibe
ria. is raising nearly as much as is aflorded by
either of these two countries: and when we
take into the estimate tbe gold and silver of
Old and New Mexico, Central and South Ame
ses and Africa, wa cannot but think that tbe
new York Herald (alls far short of tbe mark,

which this immense influx o
the precioJa metals will have upoo price* all
over the world. They are probably correct,
b)M arc feel at ifeia twoe no inclination to follow
him. Our attention ia ratber directed to the
immense influence which these discoveries
must exercise o»er caramerce, over emigration,
over industry of every deecriptioti, over civili
sation, and, most important of all, over reli
gion. The hundreds of millions of human be
ings who swarm in the vast Archipelago of the
Pacific and Indian Oceans, and in China and
Eastern Aria, already stimulated by the desire
wealth, have broken through
the sleep of centuries, und are pouring their
thousands and tens of thousands upon our
shores; and if such already be the result of
the gold discoveries, what will it be in the
course of the next twenty years to come? when
we shall have steam lines plying from Califor
nia to Japan and China, when the Pacific shall
have beome white with the sails of our merchant
sb ips, when the cotton of the United States
shall furnish the four hundred millions of Eas
tern Asia with clothing, and when Panama and
Tehuantepec shall have become the loute for
all those products of the boundless East, which
pass t? our Eastern port and to Europe, as
they must of necessity become. Already tens
of thousands of Chinese are saving all they
can to pay their passage to the land of gold,
while we are informed that five hundred of
them landed but a month since, and brought
the intelligence thot a ihousand more were on
the way. With surprising facility they fall into
our habits, adopt our manners, and learn our
language. There cannot be a doubt that thou
sands of them will adopt the christian religion,
for that follows next, and that they will return
to China to spread the glad tidings of the gos
pel among their own countrymen, at the same
time that they introduce a civilization, the su
perior advantages of which, though despised
in the person of Europeans, whom they are
accustomed to regard as barbarians, will not
be overlooked when they are seen in the
improved condition of their countrymen. Of
more importance, even to Eastern Asia, than
California will Australia prove to be. That
vast Island, if it may not more properly be
called a continent, situated on the shores
of Southern Asia, with the inducements which
its mines hold out, will be rapidly filled up
from this country, from England, and from all
Europe. It cannot long remain a dependent
colony, and when it shall once have become in
dependent, we shall have three mighty Anglo-
Saxon nations, spreading their language, their
commerce, their civilization, their arts, and
their religion all over the habitable globe.
We expressed, a few days since, the opin
ion that the correspondent of the New York
Herald labored under some mistake with re
gard to the behavior of this man in the omni
bus at the Petersburg depot. We now learn,
from undoubted authority, that his statement
was entirely correct. The occurrence took
place exactly as he stated.
The Minnesota Pioneer gives an account of
a man named John Stean, who was recently
found dead on his feet, near St. Paul's. He
was an Englishman, between 60 and 70 years
of age; had served throughout the Mexican war.
and had, last fall, built himself a cabin in the
woods, and shut himself up to winter. His
neighbors not having seen him far some time,
two of them went to his cabin, which they
found locked, and on openiug it, Stean was dis
covered standine at the foot of his bed, dead,
and frozen solid, lie had on seven pair of
pantaloons, and in a belt about his waist $270
in gold. He had evidently been dead some

and coffee of the Hawaiian kingdom into all
United States ports on the sarjie terms.
An Execution in California.—The fol
lowing thrilling account of" an execution in
California was related to a recent traveller bv !
a ruffian who took part in it:
'•It was just about daylight. They carried !
him to the horsemarket, set him on the table
and tied the rope round one of the lowerbranch
es of a big elm tree. All the time I kept by his
side, and when he was getting on the table, he
asked me to lend him my revolver to shoot one
of the jurymen who had spoken violently
against him. When I refused, he asked me to
1 tie the knot so as it would'nt slip. "It ain't no
account," said I "to talk in that way, Jim, old
fellow,you're bound to die; and if they didn't
hang you I'd shoot you myself." "Well then,"
said he, "give me hold of "the rope, and I will
show you now little 1 care for death." He seiz
ed the cord, pulled niinselfin an instant out of
the crowd, and set cross-legged on the bough.
Half-a-dozen rifles were raised to bring him
down, but reflecting that he could not escape,
they forbore to fire. Ho tied a noose in the rope,
put it round his neck, slipped it up till it was
pretty tight, and then stood up and addressed
the mob.' He didn't say much, except that he
hated them ull. He cursed the man he =hot;
he then cursed the world; and last of all cursed
himself, and with a terrible oath he jumped in
to the air, ucd with a jerk that shook the tree,
swung backwards and forwards over the heads

On motion of Mr. Griffin, the Committee on
County Organization was instructed to enquire
into the expediency o.f so amending the 72d
section of the act passed at the present session
of the Legislature, for districting the counties,
as to establish the house of John Hughes, in
Henrico county, on the Williamsburg road,

hours, in a speech of great ability, in opposi
tion to the proposed increase. He estimated
the true public debt of Virginia at twelve mil
lions instead of twenty two millions, as estima
ted by Mr. Goode, of the Finance Committee,
