THE DAILY DISPATCH.
TO ADVERTlSKßS—Thecirculatloß of the Dispatch is thus times as large as that of any other Daily paper in the city «f Richmond. It Is therefore greatly superior to any other as a ■edlum of advertising. RICHMOND. TA.i Tiesiay Morning, May 18,1832, rr VN e must positively request our adver tising friends to send us their advertisements as early as they possibly can. Our advertising is very heavy, and when they are received at a late hour they impose a heavy burden on the printer. MR. THRASHER. The New York Herald contains two letters from this gentleman, both dated "Madrid, 22d March," and addiessed, the one to General Concha, and the other to Mr. Webster. The letter to Concha is o rejoinder to the communi cation of the latter, to the Spanish Minister, in which he attempted to refute the positions as sumed by Mr. T. in his appeal to his country men from the dungeon ol Punta. Mr. T. de monstrates, beyond doubt, that his trial was most unfair, that a military tribunal was not the proper court for his trial, that the law of domiciliation extended only over five years, that he had refused to acknowledge himself a subject of Spain, and that, in any event, letters of domiciliation do not make an American a Spanish subject. The letter to Mr. Webster relates to a sen tence in his communication to Mr. Barringer, in which he says, "it is much to be regretted that Mr. Thrasher made no communication whatever to this department, respecting the circumstances of his case, so as to enable us to see what are the precise grounds of his complaint." He says that he was confined in a dungeon, for sixteen days, and allowed to hold no communication with any one—that he afterwards saw the American Consul, who in formed him that he had sent a full statement of his case to Washington—and that he there upon declined making any further communi cation on the subject. He expresses great fears for the consequences to American citi zens, from the interpretation which the author ities of Cuba will be sure to put upon Mr. W. : s letter, and says that tie government of that Island were administered in accordance ■with statute and justice, if the law were re spected by its Ministers, or if the Executive, there, were guided by any fixed principles, no danger could arise from the letter. But far from this, the Executive and ministers of jus tice aw guided only by one idea, and that idea is a war of races. He deprecates the idea of turning over our citizens to the tender mercies of a tribunal influenced by such prejudices, and shows,by the example of the persecutions in 1844-5, on the occasion of the pretended slave conspiracy, that neither government nor Judges cared for the law, since in defiance of one passed by Charles 111, abolishing torture, it had, nevertheless, been applied upon a scale revoltingly large, not only to slaves, but to Englishmen and Americans. In the letter to Concha, Mr. T. says that the Spanish Courts did not attempt to sustain the position taken by that functionary, but ac knowledged that he was a citizen of the United States. Correspondence of the Dispr»tcli, ( THE VALLEY—THE CENTRAL RAIL ROAD—THE TUNNELS—COMPETI TION OF STAGE LINES—FINE TIME FOR TRAVELERS—HOTELS. Staunton, May 13. Dear Dispatch I conceive myself a for tunate man in having the opportunity to visit this beautiful anil happy spot upon the Globe we inhabit, at this season of the year, i ques tion whether the region of country, of which this village may b,e regarded the centre, can be surpassed in beauty, while I am sure it can not be in the general independence, thrift and happiness of its people. Nature, on every hand, has assumed the Spring fashion, and turn which way you may, your eyes are met by fields of living green and forests clothed in the richest and most luxuriant foliage. Abound ing in bold and natural features, which make it enchanting to all lovers of nature, the hand of man has adorned the country with well culti vated farms j and go where you may, you be hold the admirable signs of judicious tillage and the industry of the husbandman. Though the low-land furmer is greatly itnprovi ng his mode of cultivation upon the systems pur sued in his part of the country some years since, still he can derive important lessons from the customs of both his cis and transmon tane fellow citizen. A single fact speaks vol umes (or the Valley farmer. The wagons from the Valley, when they have discharged their flour, or whatever they may bring fur market, generally reload with plaister. The desire for this return load is so great, that although the flour may be conveyed by railroad from Wood ville (seven miles from Charlottesville) to Richmond for less than it costs to transport it along the Canal, as there is no plaster at Woodville, they all go to Scottsville for the return freight of this improver of the soil, so valuable to the mountain farmer. This heavy material is wagoned across the mountain, not to put on poor lands, but to prevent the lands now good and producing finely, from be ing exhausted and becoming poor. Th e inoun ain farmer, with a forecaste and industry which prove his fitness for his noble calling, maintains the strength and fruitfulness of his lands, knowing that if thty aie impoverished by neglect, he himself will be made poor, if not ruined, before he can restore them to their former condition. The region of beautiful farms and fine farm ing, an you journey on the route to this place, begins near Gordonsville, and fio® thence to Stauuton you have, with some short intervals, a succession of bold scenery and teeming lands that will make even the coldest and most indifferent spectator fall in love with the country. From the summit of the Rock Fish Gap, as you look down the Rock Fish Valley, in Nelson, to the South and to the Southeast, in Albemarle, you behold scenes that are lovely beyond description. It is just such a bewitch ing view as it might be supposed the devil pointed out to the Saviour, and which he said should be all bis if he would fall down and worship him. In this year of our Lord poor humanity would be hardly a proof against *uch a temptation, and would likely fall to worshiping old Nick for even a few hundred acres of the rich and beautiful lands there opened out to view! It would be cruel to aub ject our weak natures to such a trial! For one I opposed the route taken by the Central Road to Charlottesville ; but now that | it is located, and its course settled, I am as aniious to see it completed, and as sanguine about its valuable results, as any of its warm est supporters. The long lines of wagona we met on the route hither, prove the productive ness and the trade of the country, and the em ployment to be given by it to the railroad. By the time the road is completed, I predict that a double track will be demanded ! The road will, of itself, work a revolution that will mul tiply the resources of the grand country thro' which it will pass beyond the predictions of the most enthusiastic. The work of relaying the track with a heavy T rail is rapidly going forward between the Junction and Gordonsville. Some five miles are completed. It is delightful to ride over them. The work is done in the very best man ner, and Mr. Ruggles, the Chief Engineer, de serves credit for the rules he has caused to be observed in its execution, as ihey tend to pro mote the evenness and durability of the tiack. The seven miles completed and in operation, beyond Charlottesville, are not surpassed by anv road I ever travelled upon. The curves, which are necessarily numerous, are admira bly made, and the track is as even as it could be. •* The work of the great tunnel under the Blue Ridge is progressing in an encouraging man ner. Someihing more than 1200 feet are bored out, and with success, such as the laborers have had for some months past, the tunnel will be through in a little more than two years. If the Legislature could be induced to settle it self down at the tunnel —according to the ad vice of mv friend Baldwin, who considers that body the greatest bore known to modern times —the work would be done in much less time! Col. Crozet is taxing his whole energies up on the work submitted to his charge. He ev idently considers his reputation, as an Engi neer and man of science, very much involved in the great undertaking—probably the great est ofhis life. I have every confidence in his capacity. The great tunnel, he says, is per fectly submissive to his science. The rock is hard, but it can be removed, and being removed, the tunnel can be fin ished off as a tunnel should be, without more labor than usual; but the little tunnels are the greatest sources ofhis troubles. These are two which pass through spurs of the Blue Ridge in that section of the road submitted to his engineering. In these he has encountered difficulties he had no conception of, and to conquer them almost baffles his science. His line passes through masses of loose earth and rock, which fall > in so that eveiy step of the work is inconceivably difficult and dangerous- I believe in his skill and energy, however, and expect in due time to see him conquer the troubles in his way. I have nlready written rather more than I in tended, my dear Dispatch, when I took gpmy pen; but for your satisfaction I must tell you of the grand contest now waged between the com peting lines of stages from Woodville to this place. When I went to take the cars in Rich mond 1 met agents of these competing lines, who gave me an indication of the zeal of the competition, the nature and extent of which I hadfpreviously 110 knowledge of. They were very polite and gentlemanly young men, and conducted their solicitation in very proper style. Each told his story in his own way, each wait ing for the other to be heard. Upon enquiry, I found that the Central Railroad had com plained to the Ficklins and Parishes of the old line of stages about their charges from Char lottesville to Staunton and the Springs, as driving travel to otiier routes. This complaint, begun months or years since, had 110 effect, or if any, not what the company wished; and at last an opposition line of stages has been es tablished by Messrs. John H. Timbeklake & Co., and the Railroad Company has bound it self to give a through ticket in connectiion with this line for four years, Messrs. T. & Co. bind ing themselves to continue their line in opera tion that long. Bv this conjunction the fare was greatly reduced, and the old line hazing its ".ambition" aroused, still further reduced it; whereas they could not drop a button hole of their charges before, as soon as a competitor was in the field they came clear down to al most nothing. So that, in those elegantt Fick tin and Farish coaches in which you had for merly to pay §2 50 from Charlottesville to Staunton, you may now ride for twenty-five cents! " What a fall was there my country men !" I don't mean to be a partizan of any man ; I am the partizan of the public—and that public has some recollections of extra baggage charges, and how Snap, with his scales in Staunton, used to weigh the trunks* and possess charges for extra weight with an in exorable rigoi—and how appeals were useless, for there was no other line, and this Snap knew, and so did the passenger. This interest ing ceremony was a prelude to getting in the coach—it made thousands of dollars for Farish, Ficklin,&c., and made many a sinner curse, and many a saint swear a few prayers. For these reasons the public is deeply interested in the opposition—in its establishment—in its con tinuation. 1 would not have Ficklin. &c., dri ven from the track. lam sure both lines would ' have enough to do at reasonable rates. I should be afraid if the new comers were to get a monopoly of the line, they would have a Snip weighing baggage, and charging by the ounce! I will say of the new line, that its stages are superb, its teams excellent, and dri vers as good as any. The head of the con cern, Mr. John H. Tt MBERI.AKE, is a man of great and practical energy. He had been, lor a long time, one of the Directors of the Cen tral Road, in which capacity he did much va luable service. The competition is carried on with great spirit, and it is really animating to see the teams, with their little flags and plumes waving from their head stalls, dashing away at a fine pace over the admirable mountain roads. Some of those little flags have mottoes, on one we observed •' Victory or Death!" The new line gives a hundred pound« of baggage and we suppose the old, which formerly charg ed for all over fifty, w ill now do the same Competition coerces great concessions from very firm men! The fare from Richmond to Staunton is now only $4; it was formerly fix. By the Canal and ScotUville Turnpike jou may go foreven a little less than this. Suc ceeeto competition say I! It ia about to enable poor folkt in lower Virginia to see the Virginia valley, one of the most beautiful parts of the earth. Thai privilege ia a great one, and ita extension ia a fit subject for rejoicing. There fore, we say, hurrah for John H. Timberlake 8f Co > Hold your hfeld Ficklin, and be con tent with reasonable rates! I must not forget my friend McClukg, of the Vireinia Hotel, whose house I find to be in its wonted good order, and whose table groana with the delicious productions of this favored region, prepared in the very best manner. It is a place for a man to be comfortable, and U be entirely satisfied—if good living and polite and obliging attentions con make him so. A new hotel is just opened, though not ex actly completed, at Charlottesville, immediate ly upon the Railroad. It was begun last year, and is rather slow in building. I found the table a very good one, and the sleeping rooms ppacious and well finished. If Mr- OiwoHim dro, its proprietor, will hurry it on, and syste matize the waiting of the servants a little, he will have a very capital hotel of it. For fear, dear Dispatch, that you will take me for a bore, and desire to send me to the Tunnel, I bid you good morning. C. The Gardiner and I Jar go us Claims. The New York Herald, speaking of these claims, says : "It is calculated that lees to the airtoam of at least 3 millions of dollars, over and above the million of the whole amount of claims, have been paid aw ay to agents, lobby-members, ex- Senators and ex-Congressmen, tor their imagi nary services and influence in having these claims confirmed. We think it is time for Congress to take up the matter, and have a fair examination of the whole subject." "The Farmville Journal." —The last numberofthis paper announces the retirement of Mr. R. L. Saunders, who has been for some time its Editor, and the passage of the paper into the hands of Messrs. A. M. Cowan and S.D. Brown. Mi. Saunders has conduc ted the Journal in a manner highly creditable to him, as a gentleman and Editor, and we wish him success in his future enterprizes. The new Editors make a graceful bow to the public, and promise to use their best efforts to promote the public good and make their paper accep table. The Journal takes no part in politics. Death of Mrs. Adams.—The venerable Mrs. John Quincy Adams died at Washington on Friday. E3pßev. John VV.

Senator for Indiana,and Capt. Duncan, his brother-in-law, living in the same house at Covington, Indiana, on the most friendly terms, had a personal misunderstanding on the 7th inst. It appears that on the day and eve ning previous, thev had been drinking, and that on the morning of the sad occurrence, Capt. Duncan went up stairs to Mr. Hanne gan's room, and an altercation ensued be tween the parties, when Capt. Duncan gave Mr. Hannegan a slap in the face. Mr. Hanne gan, upon the indignity he felt, and the im pulse of the moment, struck Capt. Duncan with a knife in the lower part of the stomach, in flicting a severe, and what is thought, a dan gerous wound. Mr. Hannegan, recovering from his passions, aroused by the supposed indignity, suffers the most excrutiating tor tures in the reflection that he has, perhaps, struck down as kind a friend as he has on earth. A rumor reached Cincinnati in the early p »rt of the week that Duncan had died of his wound. The commerce passing throuerh the Gulf of Mexico amounts to over $200,000,000 per an num. The U.

Tm KmnwAttsm KICK** -For serer.l days past this momentous question has been in the mouths of our cltiaeas generally, "who kicked Mr. McDonald ?" On yesterday.the Mayor communicat ed to his admiring oonrt an an»werto that qu«ry. The scene, at the time of ita enunciation, was moet thrilling. Upon stating that he should reveal the importait secret, a tremendous rush of three re porters, two lawyers, the police en masse, and a guji 11 dog, was made to the bar. Then and there the horror-struck auditory were inlormed that Mc- Donald had been kicked in the shoulder—the length of the leg that gave the kick was not known. Fur. ihermore, the kicking took place at night fall—the time when deeds of darkest dye are ever commit tod. At this particular juncture, when Billy Patter son's ghost would have spread jollity through the listeners, so absorbing was their terror, a fearful pause ensued. There was a solemn interruption. The police had heard of it They had been inde fatigable. They had repaired to the scene of the commission of the atrocious deed. They had ex amiued the field of conflict. The kickers were not there, neither was the kicked. All had vanished, jeaving behind only a strong sc-int of tobacco and bad punch. And who, finally, were the kickers? Somebody had seen somebody else, who had eeen one of a number of jolly and rollicking university students "who had been dining late," walk delib erately up to Mr McC, and kick mm. And here the breathless auditory were relieved oi their anx iety. A tear dropped from the eye of an awe struck listener—the atmosphere grew more bright and peaceful, and we departed. Assault —RichardOrrill, a youth about 12 years of age, and his mother, Mrs. Martha Ann Orrill, a very respectable looking matron, were tried on yes terday before his Honor, upon a warrant issued at the instance of Gray R. McCullock, charging them with making a perscnal assau't on Thursday last. From the evidence it appeared that Mr. McCul lock had been requested by Mr. Tyler, who owns a lot in the "Old Field," to try and arrest some boys who were in the habit of entering said lot, breaking down the fences ani pulling up the clover. Mc- Cullock caughtyoungßichard, on Thursday,snug ly ensconced in a cherry tree, located on the Tyler domain. He immediately, through the medium ef some stonea, persuaded Richard to "come to earth,"and we believe administered to him a slight flagellation. Mrs. 0., who lived close at hand, hear ing the cries of her son, came to his aid, and seiz ing a brush-wood threatened to punish McC for his conduct. McCullock protested against Mrs. O.'s interference, and in a very ungallant manner shook a whip over her head, cursed her and endea vored to take from her hands the stick whi.h was flourishing in very close prosimity to his facri Thereupon, young Richard became himself again, and picking up a rock, laid Mr. McC .out a meet reward for his cowardly conduct in attacking a weak female. Mr. McC. feeling indigent at this striking proof of the force of filial affection, there upon brought a charge of persona! assault against Mrs. O. and Master O. The Mayor dismissed the complaint so far as the charge of assault was con cerned, but in order to keep young Richard from trespassing upon Mr. Tyler's premises in future, bound him over in the sum of $100. Complaints have frequently been made by the citizens living in the suburbs, of the wanton destruction of their lences and flower-gardens, by mischievous and un ruly boys, and it was necessary that the Mayor should take some measures for checking their dep redations. He accordingly made an example of Richard. McCullock, on account of his unjustifi' able conduct towards Mrs. 0-, was required to give 850 security for his future good behavior. A Black Rogue.—On the 12th of last month a negro, named Alexander, slave to Mr/Tunstall, en tered the house of Mr Gildersleeve and stole out the hall a book, cane and umbrella. He was ssen leaving the house and pursued, but dropping his plunder he succeeded in making his escape. A young negro who was with him at the time was arrested—as already recorded in our paper—but subsequently was discharged, there being no testi mony to prove his participation in the theft. On the same day, Wm F. Gray had a coat and umbrel la stolen Irons his store, and Alexander having been seen to enter the store, officer Pearce suspected that Alexander was also concerned in that robbery. The negro, however, had succeeded in obtaining a forged pass, and proceeded up the Central Rail road. During the past month the police have been on the lookout for Alexander, and last week he was arrested by one of the constables of Caroline county—at the instance of officer Pearce—and on Saturday brou s ht to the city. He was duly ar raigned before his Honor yesterday, and his guilt being clearly n ade out in the case of the arti cles stolen from Mr. Gildersleeve, he was ordered .19 lashes well laid on. He was then remanded to jail to await ex: minaticn this morning on the charge of stea.ing a coat and umbrella from Mr. Gray. We understand that it is the inteution of Mr. Tur.stall to sell Alexander out of the State; the Ccramonwea;th will certainly have cause to re joice when he departs from its borders. Peter Ball, a negro slave, who was employed in the fame factory with Alexander, wrote the pass with which thief succeeded in getting out of the ci.y. To prove to Peter that it is dangerous to meudle with an edged tool in the shape of a quill, the Mayor ordered him to be marked on the back with ' thirty nine" in the most legible manner. Pabodi.—We take pleasure in announcing to our citizens that this great voca'ist. accompanied by Madame Strakoscli, (late Signora Amalia Patti) will give a conceit in this city oa Thursday even in.' next. They will be accompanied, as before, by Strakosch and by Haueer. Of all the vocalists, who, in our day, has appeared before the Richmond public, S'arodi has best sustained her reputation.— Though she hts sung here at least a dozen times there has been, from first to last, no abatement in the desire to hear her. Indeed, those who have al ready listened to her, are, in general, the most anxious to hear her again. We feel assured that she will command, on the approaching occasion, fully as much attention as she has ever received - The other artistes are fully as well known as she. y are ai! ' ai the reader is well aware, of the first water. The Wcbks of ViHoiL.-We have received from Harrold <fc Murray, Book-sellers, Broad street, a copy of the woi ks ot Virgil, iuterlineated. The translation to each line is given below. It would be of great va!ue to persons studying Latin without a teacher, or to any one who wished to brush up his acquaintance with the Classics Both the Latin and the Engliih, in this edition,are prose; the rythin of the former being destroyed to make the words read consecutively as they do in English. Of course, it is not intended for a sjholar, for to such an one the rush of Virgil's magnificent poetry is everything. But it is well adapted to learners, who ought first to fcnaw the literal meaning of their author, before they undertake to scan his beauties further. Fire.—The fire on Friday mght, between 11 and 12 o'clock was occasioned by the burriing of Dr R. T. Hundley's stable, situated about a mile and a half from the city. Several valuable cow*, horses, wagons, carts, 4c., were consumed Lo»< e*ti mated to be between SfOO it j f iOOO; no insjr ance; and the fire supposed to have been the work ol an incendiary.
