Ir. Cualhoumi's S peech n the amemded Sub

able objections to the Wretced iabortion of the

tablishing safemvaults, Receivers Generil, SRI

Sale of Lots.-The third sale of Lots by
the Apalachicola Ltand Company was held
during the last week. The result has veri
licd our predictiou that "there would be no
depreciation in the value of Lots." Not
withstanding the general embarrassment of
the country, the great pressure of the money
market, yet the prices of 1836 and '37 have
been sustained. In the improved parts of
the city, and on streets which have been
graded, lots sold for nearly double what
contiguous lots were purchased for last year
And generally in the neighborhood of im
provements, a iery considerable advance
has been experienced, while remote lots
have fully held their own.
The amount of sales has been $42,615,

contemplating early improvements, but few
business lots were offered.
Among the improvements soon to be
commenced, is an Episcopal Church. The
funds for a beautiful edifice have already
been raised. A lot also for a Roman Cath

rangements are making for erecting a suit
able building. Measures have also been
taken for the erection of a Baptist Church.
A lot was aipropriated two years ago for a

We give below time official account of at
outrage on our flag, which calls for tn
promptest and severest retribution. Whik
the steamer Columbia. Capt. Wright, wan
on her Way hither from Velasco, with It
"stripes and stars" flying at her mast head,
she was intercepted by two Mexicaii ships ol
,war, who fired upon her repentedly, and, hui
for the decided conduct of Uipt. Wright,
would have compelled her to stop, if not
submit. Before we give the official account,
we will state some information we have from
a well informed and intelligent friond, wh
was on board the Columbia. Sonic six
,veeks ago, a schooner put into Galveston
island apparently in distress. She had a
large number of passengers, prienipally Mex
scans ,and Spamaiirds, who were permitted
to visit the naval station at the Island.
Some of these parties, it is pretty well
known, communicated the particulars to tie
Mexican Government; and there is a moral
conviction arising from the flacts already
known. and from the very large number of
men on board the two attacking ves-sels. that
it is the intention to land a force on the
asland, and burn up the Navy Yard and
other establishments there. The brig spo
ken of in the annexed report, was the new
sloop of war, "Igula," said to be one of the
fiest vessels that ever sailed out of Balti
more. She was commanded by Commo
dore Lopez, carried from M2 to 36 gns, and
is believed to have had over 200 men on
board. The other vessel was the 'Iturbide,'
commnauded by a renegade American nasmed
Davis; and though carrying only 18 guns,
had on board an immense number of men,
supposed . to be troops intended for the de
scent on Galveston. Atlie time the Colum
bia stopped her engme, she had on a heavy
head of steam, with all her hose manned for
the purpose of using the boiling water for
defence or attack, and could easily have run
down the " Igunla:" which Capt. Wright
was strongly disposed to do, but hesitated
from the recommendation of sonic of his
officers. hlis conduact tlroughioutis spoken
of by all as worthy of every recomnmenda
tion and while we re-echo the call on our
naval commnanders in the Gulf to do prompt
justice for the insult oifered our flag, we pre
sent the name of Capt. Wright to outr citi
zeis as one deserving their warmest estecum.
