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.

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.

Unfortunate Affair Between two Re

U. S. 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

wound.

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

ol an incendiary.

Excubsion Tickets.—We concur heartily in
the suggestion of a subscriber, and trust that our
different railroad companies will hold out the in
ducement of low fares to excursionists:
Messrs Editors Do you not think it would be a
good idea »nd a profitable one, for our different
railroad companies, during the warm weather, to
issue round-trip tickets to some of the many beau
tiful and retired grcves within a couple ot hour*
ride of Richmond? This ia done by the compa
nies North of us, and thty find that they lose no
thine by this acc.mmodation to the public.
Very truly, &c • A Scbscbiber.
