much so as to cut off all prospect of liberal gain

exceedingly, especially during the past winter, as
many of your own citizens can bear me testimony,

The Louisville Journal of the '25th publishes a ,
correspondence between Colonel Munroe, the
ciwil and military Governor of New Mexico, and
Lieutenant Governor Alvarex, one of the officers
under the recent State organization. The Journal
says:
" The intelligence was brought by Major
Weightman, U. 8. Senator elect from the State
of New Mexico, who arrived at St. Louis on
Thursday, en route for Washington, where he will
present and press the claims of the new State
for admission into the Union.
" The violence of the contest between the par- 1
ties for and against a State Government was very
great. The friends of the State Government
carpi*.! everv county^ save one." ^ t
Col Munroe sends to~Lieuteu:mt Governor Al-*
vare* an extract from an order which he received I
from the War Department in May last, which is
in substance the principle laid dow n by the U. S.
Supreme Court on the transfer of the ceded territory
The following, in reference to the inhabit- !
ants of New Mexico, is the gist of it
" They do not, however, participate in political j
power ; they do not share in the Government till
|New Mexico] shall become a State. In the
mem time [New Mexioo] continues to be a Territory
of the United States, governed by that
clause of the Constitution which empowers Congress
to make all needful rules and regulations
respecting the territory and other property belonging
to the Unitad States."
Col. Munroe then asks attention to the following
passsge in his proclamation calling an election
for an Executive and Legislature to constitute
a State Government:
" All action by the Governor, the Lieutenant
Governor, and of the Legislature, shall remain
inoperative until New Mexico be admitted as n
State, under said Constitution, except such acts
as may be necessary for the primary steps of organization
and the presentation of said Constitution
properly before the Congress of the United
States.
"'The present Government shall remain in
full force until, by the action of Congress, another
shall be constituted.' "
In view of these things, Col Munroe says
" I now declare that the nomination of officers,
aud their confirmation, to asaume the exercise of
functions which, by superseding the officers now
in commission, will affect the laws of this Tcrri- j
tory, as at present const ituted, will be deemed and ,
aann act, on the partof all concerned, in
direct violation of their duties as citizens of the
United States.
" Mjr official obligations imperatively require
that the present Government be stistuined until
superseded by another legally constituted, and
this duty I will fulfil with all the means at my
disposal"
Here follows a reply from Alvarez, in which
occurs the following paragraph
" He assured that no collision wilt succeed, nor
any embarrassment interrupt the quiet action of
the Legislature and the people, unless it be provoked
and be brought about by military interference.
The people are peaceably disused, fully
aw ire of the pacific remedy that exists for the
G >verninent grievances they have long endured,
and will not readily consent to surrender their
dearest rights, and the hope, long deferred, of
ameliorating their social and political condition."
FAKITTION OK PROFESSOR WEBSTEI.
Boston, August SO, 1850.
Professor Webster, after his family left him last
evening?in happy unconsciousness, as he believed
an 1 declared, t hat the neriod of his execution was
bo near at hand?was searched, and then conveyed
to a d fferent oell fVom that he had occupied, to
p event any possibility of suicide, in case he had
meditated such purpose. Dp. Putnam remained
with him until nine o'clock, and from that hour
until twelve, he passed the time in conversation
on devotional subjects with his watchers. At
twelve, he fell into a done, and though not sleeping
for any long period, his slumbers were light
and apparently easy. During the intervals of
waiting he conversed freely with his oompanions.
speaking of his impending fate with fortitude and
resignation, and expressing special gratification
that his family had been kept in ignorance of the
time fixed for his death. As the day began to
break, and the various sounds peculiar to the
diwn reached his cell, he exhibited some agitation?probably
at the reflection that he had heard
them for the last time?but he soon regained his
composure. ?
Hy advice, he made a light breakfast, taking
only tea and bread, and invited the officers to partake,
offering them the bread himself, and exhibiting
great courtesy as well as self-possession in his
manner lie subsequently made the necessary
preparations for ascending the scaffold, with ooolness
and deliberation. About nine this morning
the final religious ceremonies were commenced by
Dr Putnam He engaged in a fervent prayer, in
which he iuvoked the presenoe, spirit, and graoe
of God for the unhappy man so soon to die. He
prayel that his repentance, which he trusted and
L believed was sincere, might be accepted, and that
be might be prepared, through mercy, to meet the
awtul doom which awaited him He prayed alao
for the pri-oner's family, that when their time of
dea'h should oome, they might meet the prisoner
in heaven, where there would he no sundering
the tics of affection, lie prayed also for the
murdered man's family, and for the sheriff, his
assistant*, the witnesses of the execution, and
generally for all persons
After the prayer, the prisoner's arms were pini
ncd.and about twenty minutes after nine he was
brought forth to die. He was scoompanied to
'he gallows hy Dr Putnam, and on hie way thith
<r bm step was ffrn>, though hia feee wu of a
deadly pallor His look was that of one who had
committed deadly sin, which he vu shout to eipiste
with hie life.
On striving at the eceffold. the sheriff read
lit-death-warrant, during which Prof Webster
? in enraged in earnest conversation with Dr. Putnam
At its conclusion, his lege wers pinioned,
atid the rope was placed shout h(a neck- This
oauetd him to hlush, and there were evident signs
| of * suppressed powerful feeling The Mark cap
* n then placed on hia head, and the sheriff proI
?1 'lined with s loud voice that he was ab"ul to do
I ttWUlH on the body of John W Wehater, for

Pursuant to previous notice, a meeting of a
)ortion of the citizen* of Linn county, lowi, was |
i**1r| ni Ml Vernon in said county, the 4th July, |
l^.iO, to express their views of the questions now f
igitafing the public mind in Iowa. |
The meeting was organized hy calling A.I I
Willits to the Chair
I. H Julian, after some prefatory remarks. of- i
*ered the following resolutions, which were unan- |
miously adopted. I
JUsoh'd, That as freemen assembled on this |
;he birth day of our liberties, we declare our con- |
linued attachment to the political principles of |
he Declaration of independence and the Cousti- i
lution of the United States, as exemplified by |
ihe Trainers of those instruments, the founders |
?f our Government. I
K sulvrl, That we adhere with unabated devotion
to the Wilmot Proviso, or the principle, coeval
with the Government, by whatever name it
10 iy be called, of restricting slavery, by act of |
Congress, to the States where only it legally ex- j
ists; and we believe that nothing short of an en- |
netment of this aort can "Hay tk?, ?<e*sat a^ii*. i
v+r~Ux*,i Tut w* in favor of the imninii- j
ate p isssge of a bill for the admission of Califor- i
nia, unconnected with any other matter whatever;
that the attempt to connect her admission wtth <
other measures, not only totally irrelevant, but *
intrinsically disgrsoeful. io order to to propitiate
the slave power, is an insult to all freemen; ,
and that Thomas if Benton, for his noble efforts
to thwArt this attempt, deserves the thanks and
plaudits of every patriot.
Rtsohtd, That, as citizens of Iowa, we feel
deeply her humiliating position, with reference to
the great question of the day ; more especially as
contrasted with that of her younger sister, Wisconsin
; and that we will use our best efforts for
her political regeneration.
Rrsoheil, That, in the opinion of this meeting,
our Drmocratic Senators and Representatives in
Congress have done themselves no credit by flooding
this country as they have done, to the neglect
of everything on the other side, with the
recent speeches of Messrs. Clay und Webster?
speeches disgraceful to their authors and to the
American Congress

office of political responsibility and influence,
who will not unequivocally declare himself in favor
of restricting slavery by act of Congress ;
and we hoi>{ it to be the tlatf of <'?ic friotKht of
that doctrine, fo organiie with reference to it, as
the paramount political question Jlf,the day.
Therefore.
Hnolrtd, That we will cast our votes for the
Free Soil State ticket, and also for the nominees
of Free Soil county and district conventions,
should such be held.
N. W. labell offered the following additional
resolution, which was unanimously adopted
R'fohrd, That the concessiona attempted to be
obtained from the North by the (so called) "compromise
bill," are the sacrificesof moral right and
civil liberty to cupidity and avarice?a sacrifice
which we cannot make without feeling ourselves
recreant to to our consciences and our God.
On motion, copies of the foregoing resolutions
were directed to he forwarded for publication to
the Ion-a True Democrat and the Notional Era.
Arrangements were made for holding, at an
early day, conventions to nortiinate a county Free
Soil ticket and a candidate for Representative to
Congress. The meeting was very well attended,
and the utmost harmony prevailed.
