FINE STOcK-A WORD To AMATEURS For many years much has been said through the public presses, concernig the improved stock of various individuals. These notices have been concluded in terms of bighest praise, and purchasers who had not .a correct knowledge of the I value, and risk to'boencountered in breed ing such animals. have been gulled to the tune of extremely high prices. So far as the bestowal of such encomiums has a tendency to direct the public mind to the pioper crosses, and to the general dissem ination of value breeds, they have our most approving sanction, but the too fre quent practice of incompetent judges co operating in this and other deceptions with the intention of humbuging our peo ple for the direct benefit of themselves or their personal friends,-we most earnestly deprecate. At the North, great imposition in these particulars, has and continues to be prac ticed. In some instances, men known in the south by high reputations through the Agricultural and others Journals, as bree ders offine Stock,, are stigmatised at home as impositers. We know something of these things, and of the prevalence ofthis "Yankee ntncouvring," but fell gratified in making some honorable and distin guished exceptions amongst the Northern Stock breeders; but to the cost of our ex periments few of these honest persons have been engaged in disposing of Stock flor the South. With such facts, ivell au:henticated by the cost and mortifications of many Sou thern amatetrs, Editors should be ex tremely cautious in disseminating such notices, as they have frequently been made the instruments of deteriorating the good stock already in the country, as well as of retarding that consummation of per fection so much desired in our domestic animals. We have visited a great many of the finest stock farms in all parts of the United States as well as a few in Canada, and have without friends introduced and im ported a good deal of stock from various sections-whilst other in all parts of the State have also been liberal in such in vesitnents, In some instances -rent ben eficDy-wa / of im av pIiin*E v - - ee ventures ; and our own has been in the main flatterini ; in others. there have been sianal failures, attributa ble in great measure, to the causes above mentioned. All this should naturally in duce our Agriculturkts, to look about them at home for stock animals from which to breed and improve their herds. A great inducement also is that a native bred ani mal has not to undergo the horrors of ac climation, which adds at least one hund red per cent to its value. We have suffered ourselves from this courage, and a friend told us the latmetntable fact. that out of twenty-four head of Kentucky bred cows, selected and brought out for him with great care last winter, he has already lost elevetn, and the remainder are rendered useless for the present. The greatest perfection should not only be attained in a breeding animal, but should be carefully preserved, and the animal system should be kept in the highest state of activity. In an itnported aninal from the difference of the temperature and the change of food-our own always roving inferior to that on which the animal ha's been raised-it is next to an impossibility, to preserve all these essentials to future success in breeding. We have been led to these remarks, partly from our own experince, but in the maitn, from a correct knowledge of thte admiraly matnaged stock establishment of Col. Wade Hampton, near Columabia, S. C. WVhen wye made incidental mention of the amount of wool produced by hissheep, in was considered incredible at a distance. So with his cattle,- which have been most carefully and succesdfully bred- They are pure bred Dur-hams, abd by great care anid attention to the miatter lie has obitaitn ed and stamped the whole herd, with the beautiful red color so much prized by all who understand the requisites to a sound, firm, and thrifty conshitution in neat cat tle. TIhese cattle have been distributed to a great extent over the State, and their blessings can be pointed otit amongst all the herds originating from theta. We desire to see themt more common in our State, atnd as one of the principles of our creeds would advise persotis who wish to improve iheir breeds to stick to horne and thus add encouragemnent to Col. Ham ton's laudable energy, instead of rustmgs to men abroad whom they have never seen, and who have no interest in a sale, save the filling of their own pockets. Let those wiho in any wise dotubt the superiority of the animals which we heve from time' to time mnentiotned, as' having been bred by him, only turtn to the awards aof our State, and District Agricultural Societies, and as loug as he was a cotm petitor they will find he wsas the recipient of a large proportioni of the premiums. His New Liecester Sheep yield perhaps -more mutton and a greater amount of rwool to their numbers tuan any flock in -America, and that is saying no little for Carolina Wool growving. Fillies and Stallions as fashionably bred as any where else in our country, can be procured from him at about half the prices demanded in other States- We speak of tIhese facts ini order to showv what avenues and facili ties our agriculturists have at their corn mna 5bonid they desire to eurk it new branches and pursuits-and we tire happy in being able to state that this fine stock has worked its way before the pub lie and is becoming rapidly appreciated abroad, which we learn from the number of orders lately received lby their spirited owner.-South Carolinian. EXERCISE. Dr. G. W. Bethune, of Philadelphia, has recently prenounced an oration before the Literary Societies of Yale College. We have not seen it to judge of it its mer its, but doubt not that it is worthy of the eloquent divine. From the Pennsylvanian we extract the following, "The address was to students; we give an extract that may be use to those who study, and had not the gratification of hearing it. After speaking of what motives should govern study-of its uses and abuses, and of its ends, the orator touches on a too much neglected point, and in regard to which, .every word stated is abundantly proven in the lire of American students." - "A serious error is the neglect or pis ical exercise in a proper degree and kind. A shrew- observer of his countrymen has remarked, that Americans work hard only rheir own brains and their stomachs, by which fact lie accounts for the attenuation and angularity of farm so frequent among tts. It is diffieult for the student to turn away from his books, when life is short 'and science so vast; but i; is poor econo tny to save a few hours by unfitting our selves for future exertions. leany imag ine that they do take pains in this respect, though. very often, after the consequen ces of former neglect have been fastened upon them; but, even then, the method of exercise is not adopted to the purpose. Sawing wood in a cellar, swinging heavy weights in a room, or dragging themselves threugh long aimless walks seems rather to fatigue the limbs than agitate the whole system. Besides. the train of thought stills goes on; there is nothing in such employment to relieve the mind, and the studeni returns unrefreshed, even tired; leps disposed than before to the task of' "takingr exercise." Exercise. to be a service, must be enjoyed, must have some im, no matter what, so that it be inno cent, which will occupy our thonghts pleasantly There is a most perniciously falso publc. opinion among us, which Di~or ite feet unit' men, ant itniost wicked lfar clergymeti. People would I be shock ed to see graye black-coated personages engaged, like school-boys. in a game of ball or contenting with each other tt pitching quoites ; yet an occasional, even frequet exercise of some such sort, would save many a promising young mar from an early tomb, and prolong the usefulluess of many prematurely old, "All work and no play." is as poor a maxim for the adult as the child; it makes the one dull as it does the other; for we are out "children of a larger growth." Constant sedentariness impairs the ;.ction of mind. Our thoughts become too abstract. unnatural, and often gloo)my. The brain takes the tone of the stomn.ch. Some starve it, thereby to ob viate the necessity of' exercise, and grow lightheaded or visionary. others overload it, and grow confised, melancholic. or iht-tempeaed. It has been observed, that wars involving lasting misebeif to great nations, have arketi from a ministerial despatch having been written during a fit of indigestion. Dryden's favorite inspi ration, when wishing to do beter than usual. was a strong saline drought; and a very eminent English statesman resorted to a simlar mode of clearing his head. It is more than probable that hurtful theories are often promulged in books, t:ose authors labor under similar difficulties without taking means to remaove them, which pileasant outdoor exercise mnight do. If so, to abstain from it is a sin agains ourselves and theo world."-Georgian. The American Consul at Tangier. We have 'just seen a letter froma Mir. Thomas N.

Althog the contemplated treaty was-to be signe in Washington, it was to be arrange entirely in London, and solely by Mi McLane on the part of the United State For reasous not very diflicult to imagini the signing was to be done in Washingto whither Mr McLane would nave forwal ded the best terms to be procured, in th shape of instructions to Mr. Packenham.

The instructions will nr be sent. The President will shelter him self under resolutioons, to be introduce and passed by the war party in the Hous of Representatives, and the Minister wi return. Such is the tenor of our advices fror the seat of government; and the characte and position of onr author leaves us in n doubt as to their correctness. Correspondence of the Chas. Courier WASHINGTON, Oct. 24. The importance to the Southern State of our future relations with the West In dia Islands cannot be over estimated. The condition of Cuba and of St. Do mingo is such that they cannot long re main as they are. The Spanish Govern inent cannot much longer hold dominio over Cuba in opposition to the designs a Great Britain, and Haytien affairs are he coming so much confused that the strone arm of some naval power can alone setti them. The United States cannot be pas ive spectators of the acquisition of thes Islands by Great Britain or France. Al of the West India islands are naturall' dependent on this continent. and our trad with them ought not to be subject to the caprices of European Governments. Mr. Wright psi been nominated by hi friends in New York for the next Presi dency. This is an important movement and one upon which the democracy n the Ennii-Sg -1,ir- r close of thie next Presidential campaign Its influence will be seen and felt in th measures of Congress at the coming ses siont. The expenditures of the present fisca year are estimated by Mr. Walker a thirty millious, and twenty one million of this sum have been expended upon th navy and army. Is there tnay prospec that the expenditures for the next yea will be less ? The revenue is estimatec at twenty seven millions from customs the exact amount estimated in 1842 by th Iriends of the tariff of that year. Th balance which estumated as remaining il the Treasury ott the first of January nex is seven millions. It follows that a con siderable redtction of the rate of dutie ott impotts mnay be made, provided tha our expenditures be essentially reduced. Correspondence of the Jonr. of Coin. WAsHINoToN Oct. 20th. Mr. Calhoun. towards the close of th lame administration, despatched an agen to the island of St. Dotmingo,-for wh particular purpose, it was tint known. H1 was p-id out of the secret servie fund. This agent, Mr. Hogan, has re turned, and made a voluminous, and, understand, an interesting report, wvhic will, probably, at some time, see the ligh1 It is conjectured that it relates chieflyt the condition of the Spanish portion the Island, and the situation and prospect of the Dominicans; their wvar with th Haytiens: the policy of the English ant French Governments in regard to ther and so (he slave holding portion of th WVest India lslandifgenerally, &c. It hi bsen supposed that the British governmen and perhapithe government o'' Franc also, will talie such a course as will ai the entire abolition of slavery in the th island, and indeed, in all the Spanish an French Islands. Thse subjec't is one some utmportance to the slaveholding'po tion of the United States.. The situuation ofl Cuba is critical, .and regarded with deep interest. Should. pass from the possession of Spain, it wi talso becotme a governme~nt of free black under the prostection of Great Britain. It w as lonsg ago intimated hy'our govers nment to that of Great* Britain, that th wouls d not he tolerated by the Unin States. .The Spanish inhabitants of Cuba ai readly and desirous of placing themselv under the orotection of the Unsited St ate and in fact, of fortming a part of their pt litical system. in case they should cea to be -suliject to Old Spain. There has been a conjecture th France had some views upon Cuba at St. Domingo,.and even Yucatan. It h. been whispered that a project is, or wa -on foot to unite the Dominicans. ti French We~st Indies, and the people Yucatan, ~under one government, wi a Prince of he Bourhon house for King. 1 ~A Government, under protection e Prance, would then. proce to annex to i elfiHayti and Cuba. fort in2 a powerf and successful empire thie 'enefir ooyoutng France." The object.bn to Ihis projeet is, tI since ibe deuonstrations of France onl I African coaqt bavo-excited so muchbje D ousBy on the part of Great Britain, it i not probable that Great Britain would al low her this new acquisition without ; r struggle. Nor am I quite sure that on u young - democracy" would approve of it for they want Cuba -themselves.. Y Pennsylvania and the Tarif.-If th, h language of the official paper at Wash d ington means any thing on the subject a d the Tariff and if it truly represents thi determined purpose of the Administratio - in reference to its reduction, there is eve , ry probability of a conflict whicl wil shake the party allegiance of a portion a least of Mr. Polk's supporters. The Har e risburg Union, which is the organ of th party in Pennsylvania, reaffirms the 6xec 3 resolve of that State to stand by the Tar iff and the protective principle. It says, Free traude may suit the abstractionist f the theorizer, or if you please the cottot t plauter, but it will never advance the in terests of any section of country - wher manufactures and manufacturing advanta. e ges exist. Protection is absolutely indis. pensable to the existence of our manufac tures. The amount of protection is s matter which we wish to see considered r by a convention called expressly for thai ) purpose, and composed of friends-of the Taritl'of every political hue. 'Such a measure is of great importance .now, in. asmuch as the advocates of free tsade from other sections of the Union are: preparing ; to make a vigorous attack upon the tariff, at the next session of Congress,- where they would stop, if allowed to sack -and pillage unrestrained, it is not difficult to tell. These hostile demonstrations must he promptly resisted, both by. our repre sentatives and by loud and emphatic ex pressions of popular sentiment. Pernsylvania, heretofore, has not been silent in the matter of the Tariff. The journals of her Legislature exhibit frequent instances in which she his spe ken loudly and with effect, and where the votes of her representatives were given without regard to party distinctions. 'The different rebolutions touching this subject are fruitful topics for discussion in a. Tar iff Convention and we shall; advert to them in aetail at some con.venient season. Our senators in Congress are bound to support the Tariff, and there is no doubt that thev will vj6 &jp# t@ thr tne action of thet body upon this measure. We have no faars that they will prove re creant to the true interost of the Key stone. As Pennsylvania has spoken in times past, so let her speak now. It is neces sary thai her position should be thorough ly understood by the whole Union, and a determination manifested not to shrink from it, whatever may be the clamors raised against it from any quarter. It is onlby the independent ione and action of such a State that a measure can final ly be adopted which will best promote-the iaterests of every section of the Union." t Circuit Court.-The Circuit Court is . now in session-present Justices Cranch, a Morsell, and Dunlop, Oi Tuesday the t Court was eugaged in. hearing an argu ment on a motion to dissolve an injunctiob granted by Jadge MorselI to - restrain -the owners of a colored woman from removing her out of the District-the said colored yoman having petitioned for her freedom.

A majority of the Court, Justices * Crach and Morsell concurring, initiated their intention to dissolve the injunction, I but should require the owner of the slave to give security that she shall .not be re -moved beyond the jurisdiction of the ' Court.
