MJ A.UES COJLLINS would respectfully
citil attention to bis Fnll Style of HATS.
They are unique, well adapted tor the season, and
essential to a gentleman'* costume. No pains has
been spared t> sustain the high reputation which
aiy Hats have attained throughout the country.
Cephalonietron.—lt i* considered one of the
greatest and most useful inventions of the age; it
would be impossible by the minutest description
to give a correct idea of its utility. Hats made by
it will fit tne most difficult heads, conformirgto
«ny protuberance aud depression of the cranium:
thua preventing the unpleasant feeling of a new
Hat, and painlul headache. No one can properly
its advantages, without having one of
my superior Hats.

In 1818, there were 290 electoral votes, making
146 necessary to a choice. At present, under th«
new apportionment, and with the addition of Cali
fornia and her 4 votes, there are 296 electoral votes,
making 149 necessary to a choice.
Our political friends have now the data for going
te work and solving the presidential enigma with
pencil and paper. The Democrats declare that they
intend to take New York, Pennsylvania, Maryland,
North Carclina, Georgia, Tennessee, and Florida )
from the Whigs at this election. And on the other
hand, the Whigs claim all these States, as well as
the others which they had in 1818, and declare that
they intenu to add to the list Ohio, ludiana, lowa,
and perhaps Virginia. Whatever may be the re.
suit—whichever party may be victorious and give
us a (-resident, we do not anticipate the ruin of the
country. No such serious result need be appre
hended from the election of either Gen. Scott or
Gen. Pierce to occupy the White House at Wash
ington for (he next four years. There is fortunate
ly no one-man power in this country. Here there
is a remedy if the King do wrong. The people and
their more immediate representatives possess ell
the supreme power. The framert of our Constitu
tion wisely provided too many checks and balances
upon the atveral departments of the Government,
to enable either to perpetrate much mischief—
These guards and the intelligence and patriotism
of the people have already carried our country
safely through many trials, and upon them we rely
for safety in future. We are aware that there Udo
small amount of ambition, corruption, demagogu.
ism, office-seeking, and aeluahness in the land, and
that with the age and growth of the country we
may anticipate its increase. But, we do not expect
to see the day when we shall 'despair of theEepub.
lie." We have no evidence that either Gen. Bcotl
or Gen. Pierce is deficient in patriotism. Both, we
are bound to believe, have at heart the interest and
wellare of their country; and whichever may sue
ceed in the approaching contest, we do not an lid
pate the happening of as many direiul calamities to
the country as some of our politicians are predict
log. Our country has flourished heretofore under
Whig and Democratic Prealdenta, and oar hopes
are strong that it will continae to prosper de»piie
cf Presidents of either party.
We are pleased to believe that thus for tbe politi
cal eampaijn has teen conducted with less exdte_
ment than has marked the several preceding eon.
tesU, and that leas asperity and more goud feeling
have been indulged between political opponents.
We are not amongst those who quarrel with osr
friends because they do not happen to agree
with us on political subjects; and we are surprised
at ibe folly of those who partus a different course-
Parties are e»cntial to the salvation ot the cosatry.

THE STORM AT MOBILE.—FURTHER
PARTICULARS. ]
We take the following further particulars
of the flood at Mobile from the Tribune of Sa
turday :
The water subsided entirely on Thursday
night, and yesterday morning the day dawned
bright and cheerful, but looking upon a scene
of destruction which brought milmh | Q the
hearts of many of our citizens.
In the lower pan of the city all along the
margin of the river, including Water street,
the scene is singularly impressive. Every
wharf there is completely broken up, and tim
bers, old roots, boards and firewood fill up
the ways and render them totally impassable.
From Government street down to the extremi
ty of the city, this scene of devastation is most
marked. Houscb are in ruins; wbsnres com*
pletely removed from their superstructures or
broken into pieces; boats driven far up on
land; limbers which no force can hardly re
fliore to the river lying in the streets—every,
thing is a melancholy wreck, and a striking
evidence of the power of the wind and the an
gry element which was its instrument. \
The walls of Marston'a warehouse are bro
ken in and the building rendered untenantable.
The pilot boats Liberty and Clara, and the
schooner Elizabeth, are lying close up against
the warehouse?. The Elizabeth is of consid
erable size and lies where there is nut a parti
cle of water, right in the middle of the street.
The water boat Ray is sunk in the slisp near
the same place. The schooners Handy, and
a-.iother Elizabeth, and the Liura are just
above Hitchcock's press, high and dry on Wa
ter street. The pilot boat Margaret lies back
of Hitchcock's press on Water street, as dry
as the day she was launched.
The upper part of the city presents the same
general features. But there the loss is not so
obvious. All the floors of the large stores
were covered, and the damage is done to arti
cles of merchandise. The wharves there, as
below, are so broken and injured as to require
entirely new constructions. The losa by this
cause is estimated at $100,000
The damage to the railroad is much lesa
than was generully expected. It was thought
that the embankments in several places would
be entirely swept away. We are glad t« hear,
however, that such damage as was done may
be repaired within a week.
Apprehensions are entertained that the foun
dations of some of the stores, particularly those
in course of erection, are so much injured a* to
require reconstruction, hut this, we presume,
is imaginary. The chief general injury is in
the destruction of the wharves, and it is feared
that unless extraordinary efforts be made to
clear the streets, sickness will inevitably fol
low. The first object should be to effect this
purpose. The floors of the submerged stores
should alao be immediately raised and drained
and limed. With such precautions as these
we think there will be no danger.
Below Choctaw Point the whole coast is
swept clear of its drift wood—as clear as the
beach in the neighborhood of Pensacola. In
some places the bay road has been torn up and
made entirely impassable. Trees in that re
gion ofgiganth growth have been thrown
down, including magnolias, pines, china trees
and vast numbera of valuable fruit trees.
A most singular and almost indeed miracu
lous event, occurred below. Washington F.
and John L. Grant, sons of Capt. Grant, were
out on Tuesday night on a pile driving ma
chine lying at the Pass. The storm increased,
and they were carried out to sea. On Wed
nesday the wind and current changed, and
they were driven back to Biloxi. Thence they
were again carried out, and finally brought up
near Pascagoula. where they were rescued.—
They were on this perilous voyage thirty six
hours without food. We think they ought to
be üble to graduate as full educated naviga
tors. _
The Mobile Tribune says that half a million
of dollurs will be more than sufficient to
cover the whole damage in that city.
The Victim of a Dukl.—A young man be
longing to one of our most respectable Creole
families, Mr. Ernest Le Blanc, fell in a duel
yesterday, with Washington Baldwin. Mr. Le
Blanc was a young uian of twenty-four, and
leaves parents and numerous relatives to mourn
over the unfortunate occurrence which has taa
ken hire from than, its the prime of youtn.—
The cause of the difficulty, we are told, waa
an insignificant quarrel in a coffee-house. Tbe
parties fooght with double barrel shotguns,
and Le Blanc received the ball of his adversary
in his chest; the wound caused immediate
death. An inquest was held on tbe body yes
terday, and a verdict, iu accordance with the
facts waa rendered. The verdict of tbe coro*
ner's jury, we are assured, will lend to judi
cal proceedings.—New Orlcant Delia, Au
gust 31. ,
Other Ddiu>— a duel between
two young Creoles, on Saturday, in which the
two parties escaped unhurt, we have beard
mention made of another, which took place at
Biloli, between two Spaniards. They fought
with broad swords, and, if the report wt hear be
correct, one of the combatants, almost severed
the bead from the body ui his adversary •—!*>•
Schoolmaster Wanted.—A provincial pa
per i n France publishes the following certifi
cate : . , .
We, the undersigned, mayor of the commune
of J. ,certify that Mit-iiel , farmer and
profeaaorol the art of destroying noxious ani
mals, and an inhabitant of this village, did
avow and declare to ux that be had killed new

he happened to meet. We immediately trans
ported ourselves to the said paws, accompa
