To th'. Kduor of tin National Era:
It has struck me th.it you might be interested
in hearing something ol'my life and adveutures
siucc ' that dark and doleful nightwhen you left
Boston, and all the simple pleasures and harmless
<W\ pat ions of the sea shore.
For myself, I am inclined to bclieTC in the doctrine
of compensation?for no sooner had you all
l*ft me. than I was happily surprised by a visit i
from one of my brothers, whom 1 had not seen for i
more than a year, and who came on to make his 1
adieus before netting out to seek his fortune in i
Minnesota. Shortly after his arrival, we all ran i
I *n to Gloucester, where my brother oncenpent <
a summer, and where he has many frienda. Here i
we spent three or four days more delightfully
than I can tell you. The weather was glorious. |
our hoHrta light and joyous?we were in a place i
mtiful almost beyond compare, and, what was |
more, among friends?kind, courteous, true, and |
urnest people, to whom we were, after all, chiefly j
indebted for our rare enjoyment. )
^e?er shall I forget a merry day in the woods l
ii 1'igson Cove, and the magnificent drive home, I
? nu.i me t;ape. The scent ry all along our w*y <
- most grand and peculiar and, should you |
''Vfr spend another season in this part of the I
*orld. you must, without fail, pay your respects I
1 ''ape Ann Let mo assure you, great shall be I
J?ur reward. '
One day of last week we spent in Huston eery
pleasantly. We passed about an hour of the 1
"" ruing in the studio of Mr. C. G. Thompson, iu (
'""king at his fine pictures. The portraits of |
"'is painter not only show great artistic skill, but i
a remarkable appreciation of charsoter and a
"ear spiritual insight. The portrait of Whipple (
's a more just and entire revelation of him, than ,
">e tiuest critic of character could gire, iu the !
'"""t elaborate representation We not only see, '
" 'he intense full eye, the clear, subtle, search- (
"(f Analytic faculty of the brilliant essayist, but ,
'he large and generous soul of the man The i
' row in alnsdutely illuminated with thought, and
mouth has all the firmness of an independent 1
"ritical decision. |
ln ?he deep, dark eye of llawthorne lies Ike as- ,
"ret of that wonderful mastery ?that half-bsauti- t
il, half-fearful power?that strange, weird-like fttscination,
which so enchain one in "The 8car- 1"
cr Leiteii while, in the warm falness and
aiet ecorn of the lipe, we re-rend that memorable
Preface,' wherein the play of delicate fancy and so
delicious humor alternated with oold, sharp ri
rokes of merciless satire.
Mr Hawthorne is, according to this portrait, a al
ngularly handsome man ; but his face wears an gi
ipression of unconaciousnese, or rather disdain, r?
r hie beauty. 4 > j*
Finely oontrnsting with this picture is one of
le poet Longfellow. This, taken some ten years Hi
nee, is still strikingly like the genius and the tt
entleman. Orer the face is spread the glow of a ^
ental ana narinouiuuo uuuic?>?u.D .? | ^
I cam sunnily, rather than to lighten?and his n
pa seem moulded by the gentloat human nffec- f*
Mr. Thompson has also some fiup portraits of |
he New York literati. That of Bryant ia full ^
f character?having a sort of severe earnestness, ci
grave simplicity, the depth and repose of ge- nr
ius ; and the most wonderfully life-like portruit, r
think, that 1 have ever seen is that of Hoftinttn. 1
Mr. Thompson is very successful in crayons. 11
le has lately executed one of our friend, Helen a
rving, which is much admired for its beauty and o
i certain thoughtfulness and spirituality of ex- C
Tension The very light of the soul is about the tl
ow, Grecian brow. tt
To return to our Boston visit In the evening, r
te went with a party of friends to see Charlotte !l
'ushmun as Meg Merrilies. It was a great treat C
br us nil?aside from the Richard of Hooth, the \
;randest personation I had ever seen It was ti
hroughout a magnificent display of power, and n
vrought one up to a fearful pitch of excitement, r
can hardly conceive of anything more terrible
h&n the death sceue, or more touching than the n
lying tenderness of the old Gipsey Ciueen for p
larry Bertram, her* bounie bairn" Miss Cush- h
nan in indeed a wonderful woman Her acting it
lasan almost superhuman strength, as well from n
>er great physical vigor, as from the intensity of fi
ter passion. Her voioe is the outgoing of an 2
)vermnstering power?a wave of her arm has all y
he force of fate?her glance paralyxes and sub- f
lues. If ever an eye shot lightnings. hers does, v
n the scene where, as Meg Merrilies. she, with
>ne awful look, arrests the descending Made of
he smuggler.
When, after the play, the great actress, obeyng
the tumultuous call of her admirers, was led
>efore the curtain, and her pleasant, winning
anile warmed our hearts toward her, we found it '
lifticult to believe her the same Gipsey hag
whose terrific laugh had so lately frozen all the f
jlood in our reins. d
The season being about over, I, having laid by d
i good stock of health and strength, really intend y
50'mg to work seriously upon such trifles as lie v
u my line. 1 mean to " keep in the quiet,' and ?
prove myself a pattern of industry. Sometime g
text month however. I may indulge in Mrisit to d
lloston, when 1 shall stay with 6u'r fnA* m 'me ' y
Adams House Vou will not soon forget that <j
H?iet, orderly, and home-like hotel To me. it is i
draost the only public house in which 1 feel de- >
dded ly comfortable. In its neatness and simple J
legsnce, in the polite attentiveness of its pro- x
prietors and servants, it forms an agreeable con- 1
trast to some more famous, showy, and noisy ho- c
tela; for instance?if I may be allowed to give a ?
name, just by way of illustration?the celebrated t
Astor House at which 1 stopped for a short time t
[>n my way East, expecting wonderful things, and \
1 can hardly say 1 was disappointed?for I cer- i
tainly found it a great, grand building, with a f
granite front, where strangers are "taken in" j
and done for. (
As you perceive front the unredeemable dulness j
of this letter, I am living a most uneventful sort
of a life. Snch communications are really not
worth the wear of type ; but if in the future any- ,
thing of interest turns up in my rides, drives, <
rambles, or brief journeyings, I will not fail to i
faithfully report. Truly yours, I

Clarke County, Ouio, Sejd. 18,1850.
To the Editor of the National Era :
September opened upon us with nil ita characteristic
beauty. For three weeks past the weather
haa been for the moat part clear ; the air cool and
bracing; the aky a little hazy, and the intluence
of the atmosphere, niter the unusually hot summer
just passed, delightfully invigorating The
harvest has been gathered, the orchards are
loaded to the ground with delicious fruits; the
grape, the wheat, the corn and all the products
of the field, surround ua in rich abundance, and
the Laud, at all times productive, yields the fullest
measure of reward ever given in one season to the
husbandman's toil. As we passed the large waving
fields of corn in Hamilton, Warren, Greene,
and Clarke counties, we saw conclusive evidence
that the crop of this great staple of the Miami
valley, though a little backward, will be a large
one. Travellers from the West assured us that
in Indiana and the greater part of Illinois the
growth has been vigorous and the crops good.
I cannot help remarking, what I have referred
to in former letters, the extreme fertility 1
and beauty of the country through which the ^
Little Miami railroad passes. The soil in the l(
Miami valley is rich, the land near the river hilly,
but, as you proceed north, beautifully rolling, h
with every variety of scenery The Little Miami "
river winds through the valley, and you pass
ilong its side, or ever nnd anon catch glimpses of h
t through the trees, which at this time exhibit tl
ill their maturity of foliage, covering the hill- )'
tides from base to summit. No lover of nature
an pass on this route, even with the present ?
apid mode of conveyance, without being charmed
vith the tranquil beauty of the scenery. And we ^
unnot forbear the reflection that the land is J1
nvned by the hard-working farmers, whose nest j,
Iwellings nnd luxuriant fields meet the eye, and
whose toil is making them richer, and advancing ^
he real wealth ami prosperity of the State. The ((\
mile of God seems to rest upon this " free soil," j
uvl the hard-handed, industrious men who till it, C|
tnd his blessing makes it teem with "milk and t<
honey," the choicest of the w heat nnd the pure 01
juice of the grape?the cattle upon its thousand ^
hills?its wide-spread fields.
The approaching State fair, to be held near g
Cincinnati, is "all the talk" among the farmers
in this region. The time, as tnaoy of your
readers are aware, has been postponed from the
mistrtl* nf this mnnth to the second third and
fourth days of October. The change was made '
on account of the prevalence of the cholera, to j,
some extent, through the State, and other reasons, |
making the change expedient. The Horticultural t
Society and Mechanic's Institute of Cincinnati, f>
and the National Poroological Convention, have ^
all appointed their exhibitions to held at the n
same time, so that a great representation of all m
the interests ooncerned may be expeoted. There
will be undoubtedly a large number of cattle (
brought to the fair; those engaged in raising the
most improved blooded stock in the Miami and
Scioto valleys and between, will be very generally 1
in attendance, to show their cattle and compete
for premiums. We shall be disappointed if there ti
is not the finest display of this kind ever wit- ii
oessed in the Western country, alike honorable s
to the State and encouraging to future effort. u
Our county agricultural societies have begun pre- o
paring the way, for eomp years their annual fairs h
have been becoming more common, and I have
now before me appointments for at least twenty- s
four county exhibitions in the uioathsof Septem- b
her and October. h
This season has been an abundant one for fruit
lo this State. We have pears and apples in ^
usual variety and plenty, and peaches in unusual
quantities. In no previous year has the peach "
baan so plentiful or so superior in sire and flavor a
is the present season. Never before were such
large (quantities taken to the Cincinnati and Co- a
Iambus markets, nor offered in such profusion
ind cheapness at every oorner, and in every fruitihop
The prices have ranged from '?<) cents to P
M M per bushel; at II 00 a very good peach c<n f<
be bought, but the finest bring much more The t]
largest and richest peaches I have ever seen in
Ik* West have been grown on the farm from
whfek I write, and have brought from wo to *'
} <(H)at Columbus The great orchard of Mr 01
I. C. Davis, near Milford, and aboutsixteen miles d
fr?tn Cincinnati, has furnished Marge portion of w
he peaohee for the Cinciaoatf^rket. This ..
>rohard consists of one hundred sores of land
ind shout fourteen thousand poach trass, of thirty
>r forty varieties The trees were brought out ft
om New Jersey, and ret out three years Ago set
at spring They hare grown finely, sod will Wi
rerage a bushel or more toaach tree The pro ietor
expect* to sell about fifteen thousand
labels of peachee the present season. The as- ttn
rtment embraces a good share of the late va- <
eties as well as the earlier, So that the selling fr<
sriod will be prolonged into October This ra
chard has a most healthy and thriving appeariice,
and with the branches bending to the
round under the loads of richly-colored fruit, is bt
presented as being most temptingly inviting to wt
ie visiter. Mr. Davis is reaping a rich reward
ir his enterprise and labor lie has two or three .
laces of deposits in thecity for his peaches, which "
?e sold, as in the Eastern cities, in baskets of *
iree pecks each ? ha
The railroad from Cincinnati to Xenia has ?ti
* * a -.1 ?n la I
pen a gOOU one. oui m-run n new nui, n in uyw
ping relaid with the T rail, and when the cars, |
ow and then, get on a section laid with it, it is U
>lt as an agreeable change by every passenger, i
rom Xenia to Columbus, the new railroad ne
vhich was put in operation last winter) is a ,U(
plendid one, equal, indeed, to any in the Union
t is laid with the most substantial T rail, has no
urves of any consequence, and the cars have a 1 re
tost unusually easy motion, taking you on at the mi
ate of from twenty-five to forty miles an hour fa
"he distance from Columbus to Xenia, fifty-four m(
ailes, has been run over repeatedly in leas than
n hour and a ^lf. Before the commencement ^
f the next sunnier season of travel, the line from '^:i
Columbus to Cleveland will be finished, when tr
tiis route will be the popular one for Kastern Wl
ravel, being more direct than that by Sandusky,
equiring less steaming on the Lake, and passing |
hrough the State capital and Cleveland ?next to I \D
Cincinnati, the most important p)aoa? I J.n
Vhetv a communication is fruit.
o Buffalo, making a continuous line from Cincin- ??
ati to New York, there can be no doubt that this
oute will take precedence of all others.
The cholera entirely disappeared from Cinciniati
a mouth since, snd has left almost every u
lace it has visited this season. The board of 11
ealth at Cincinnati made a final report, einbrncng
the time from June 1st to Angust 16th?two '
aonths and a half The deaths in June were
74; July, 1,699; August, to the 15th, 479 , total, ^
,75.'. Of these, 1,5'?0 were children under lire 0
ears of age, and 1,400 of the whole uumlier were *V
rom cholera. Of the whole amount, also, 1,891
rere of Irish and German, leaving hut 8.'<s of the ?'
American population. Yours, P. ^
InDKI'KNDENCE, Mf>., Sept. 3, 1850. O
fo ihi' Eilitor of the National Era :
DkarSir: Here 1 am at last, in what but a
ew years since was "the Far West." How truly
lo all things give indication of the westward ten- ji
lency of the " path of empire.'' But a very few
ears since, and a trip to St. Louis was associated
rith all the border tales of bold adventure, with t|
1 Wy*g?? to faditt, u.'rtie circuninavigatioa of tfct
;lobe Then, if a mother's son conceived so bold a \
lesion, while her heart secretly swelled with
iride at this manifestation of a spirit of toft,
luring, she wept as she parted from him, and in
maginatiou saw the dreadful perils of his path- u
ray passing in solemn procession before her. 1
Vote, as the majestic steamer dashes in its path- j,
rsy of foam through the rapid current of " the
'ather of Waters,nearing this whilom outpost v
>f civilization, you discover spread out before you
i vast city?vast in its rapidly increasing populaion?vast
in its resources?vast in its future desinies
? a mighty commercial heart, throbbing
vith healthful vitality, and apparently receiving
nto itself the life-blood of all the arteries that
lormeate the vast organic system. Tltm. the
dace where I now write was the wild, unbroken 1
lomain of Nature, where the untutored Red Man I
oamed in his savage and primitive sovereignty,
?? " monarch of all he snrvey'd, ,
Whole right* there wae none to dispute."
Now, 1 find myself in a flourishing young city, f
containing anout two inousana innamtanus, in- | j
jtinct with life and business, the eastern outpost of j
the Tast " Far West," through which population
is continually pouring itself into the plains and
mountains and gorges of New Mexico, Utah, and '
California All this westward flow of these vast I t
life-streams of population, and industry, and en- 0
terpriae, marks the occidental path of empire.
Yesterday morning, about two o'clock, the I c
peaceful slumbers of the inhabitants of this place
were broken by the cry of fire?a cry always E
jtartling in a Tillage or country town, where such c
incidents are of rare occurrence, but the more | C
terrible in the present instance from its contigui- , F
y to a still more dreadful element. The build- ; a
ng discoTered to he on fire contained a consider
ible lot of gunpowder, which ignited and explo- 1
led with a most terrific concussion, shaking the I
earth for several miles round, like the ground- ; h
swell of an earth<iuaK*, and startling tunny from I
their beds in the greatest consternation. The a
building itself was blown to atoms, scarcely leav- j
ing"a wreck behind." Many others In the vi- E
einity were seriously damaged in their walls, and
% brick church, belonging to the new school Presbyterians,
was so shattered that it will have to be
taken down. One poor unfortunate, a Mr. Keen, T
who imprudently weut upon the roof, thinking he , r
;ould arrest the flames, was blown up with the
building and, though shockingly mangled, sur- 0
rived till about sunrise. Fortunately, the powler
was in the upper storyof the house.and hence
lid not meet with any great resistance in explo- n
ling itself; yet, even as it was, three or four
buildings were almost totally demolished, a num- '
ber of others seriously damaged, and almost the C
rhole city bears some marks of the terrible wrath
if the destroyer. Fortunately, too, at the time of j,
he explosion there were but few persons upon
he ground, so that there was no other loss of life "
tut that of Mr Keen.
The Santa Fe mail arrived last Tuesday. The tl
ollowing summary of news I abstract from the
Occidental M-sxetiger" of this place .
A company of the United States dragoons had n'
ad a skirmish with the Apache Indians, at Kinn, ?i
it which one dragoon and seven of the Indians <(i
ret# killed. The Indians had had frequent .1(
kirinishes with the Mexican hunters, but no
loodshed. The Pueblo Indians report that
bey have seen the child of Mr. and Mrs White,
i the hands of the Apaches Tbey have been th
istructed by the authorities and citizens of Santa ju
'e to trole for it, at any price that may be de- re
From recent developments, it is believed that
lessrs Flournoy, Shaw, and others, who were to
lurdered a few months ago, were murdered by a
and of Mexicans and Pueblo Indians. The proof
i said to he ?|uite conclusive.
The August mail was met at the crossing of the v"
rkansas river, a company of soldiers at Council hz
Irove, Auhry's train I'.'miles beyond the lower pT
'imerone springs, Colonel I lavy's r> miles beyond tj(
.os Vegos. and Dr. Conelly's 12 miles from Saud
reek. Buffaloes cjuite numerous from Fort Mann M,(
i Pawnee Fork. The weather had been dry, and K
ri many parts of the road a scarcity of water and it
rass, not so great, however, us to produce much

"o the E//if or of the National Era :
DkarSir: News of the most startling charac- 'J1
r arrived in our city at an early hour this rnorn- tl(
ig. and San Francisco is in a state of excitement
itch as I have never before witnessed. Kiot, T0
mrder, and anarchy, reign among our brethren
f Sacramento City' and bands are mustering ,e
ere to proceed to quell the disturbances. 10
It seems that, in the early part of this week, a
uit was brought against two squatters who had ID'
uilt upon, and taken possession of, a piece of
tnd claimed by another under a title from Butter. Wl
in order of ejectment was issued, and in the fullmcnt
of it the authorities were opposed and reisted
by the two squatters They were arrested
nd confined on board the prison brig. B<
Yesterday afternoon, about one o'clock, nn O,
ruied body of about forty squatters paraded the J?
reels, and proceeded to the prison brig for the
urpose of rescuing the two prisoners. They were 81
>1 lowed by a portion of the citixens and the au- n*
lorities, and were driven from the levee. When 'e<
short distance from the levee, the squatters,
mailed on by the populace, turned and fired iudieriminately
into the crowd The oily waa imme- '
lately aroused to arms, an I in all portions of it
as heard the sound -of musketry. Ilardin

mileage for each session."
A fter some debate, the first clatise of the proviso
was stricken out, by 21 to 23. The second
Wits stricken out, by .'I* to 10.
Mr Badger moved to amend the bill by striking
out the following part of the bill as it came from

41 Nor shall any member of the Senate receive
mileage for any session of that body which may
be called within thirty days after the adjournment
of both Mouses of Congress, unless the
travel for which such mileage is charged has been

The House resolved itself info a Committee of

i the chair, and proceeded to the consideration
f the hill making appropriations for the expen
es 01 me navy ror me year enuing .1 uue ??, i-> >1. j
Mr. Stanton of Tennessee said that the entire I
uui to he appropriated hy thin hill amounts with- |
n a friction to nine and a half millions of dollar* 1
n a time of profound peace the expense* of the 1
iavy have grown to this enormous figure.
When our navy was established, the ships emdoyed
in it were e?|ual in all respects to the hest
easels engaged in the commerce of the country,
iince that period, the commerce of the country
ias made immense strides and advancement in all
ts instruments and agencies, but the uavy has not
tept pace with it.
His object was to show how and where it was
possible to reform the system, and make a reduc- '
Lion in 1h? appropriations in this tall without in- *
terfering, in any degree, with the value of the {
service iUr"
There should be no redix^oh, he said, in the k
appropriation for the Nationul Observatory, and
spoke of the important operations of that establishment.
He would not reduce the appropriation
tor the publication of the American Nautical
Almanac, nor for the Naval School at Annapolis.
The whole amount for these objects amounted
to but a little over $70,000.
One item, among the largest in the bill, was
$1,2.10,000, for dry docks, appropriated under a!
contract, which cannot be disregarded, and.
therefore, thin amount cannot he diminished. I lie
next is an appropriation of $7S."),000 and a fraction,
for nary yards, this cannot be reduced during
the present year, hut can and ought to be
during the ensuing. The next is $S74.()t?0 fur
mail steamers, under a contract which cannot he j
disregarded, making, together, $2,921,00(1, leaving
$6,.">10,000 and a fraction, on which he
thought a reduction of one-third could he properly
and successfully mode.
After the expiration of the present fiscal year,
the number of petty officers, seamen, landsmen,
and boys, he proposed, shall not exceed five thousand.
From this, the chief reduction is to tlow.
It is estimated, hy an eminent officer of the navy,
that the oost of the naval establishment is one
thousand dollars per tnsn. Therefore, the reduction
of the jrrsonnel from seven thousand five
hundred to five, would be saving of two and a half
millions. Establish a retired list for the wornout
officers, in accordance with a hill which he
had reported ; reduce the number of midshipmen
(now four hundred and siity-four) at leist onehalf,
that there may not he more than one for every
Congressional district, and ut least one-third of
the pay of oflicers and men ran be saved
Mr. Stanton sent to the Clerk an amendment,
whic.h he intended to offer, in miWUikw to divide
the navy into two squadrons; one to lie as
signed to the Pacific, the other to the Atlantic.
Twenty or twenty-four efficient vessels, kept in
commission under this arrangement, would do
more good and perform more service than the
whole of the six squadrons as at present existing,
composed of thirty-eight vessels
It was the part of wisdom to slough olf the old
effete pai ls of theayatoui, and substitute a better
mode of defence. A single efficient ship moored
within sight of this Capitol, ready to go to sea in
a moment, would he of more service than the home
s<|(iadrun, so far as it is composed of sailing vessels.

vessels one-third, and substitute steamships, lie
