Mr. Epitou : In my article to-day,
there is nn error which I hasten to correct.
In the sum of $19,492,695 21 due in
1847, was included tho irredeemable debt
then amounting to $1,519,371 78, whilst
by an inadvertional, it is not included in
tho sum of 815,218,129 40due January
lit, 1854.
This will reduce the amount of the prin
cipal of the State debt, actually paid from
84,274,765 81 to 82,755,394 03. The
interest on this sum of 81,519,371 78, is
891,102 31, winch added to the former
sum of 8134,581 85, makes the sum of
8225,744 16 increase, to be raised by
taxation in 1854, over that of 1847.

We were somewhat disappointed with

the depravity of human nature in general,
and of the falsehoods of the, Journal, in

Hag Nichta as a secret society, but, says it
is simply formed "to worry the Know;

The Collins Steamers,
We were under a misapprehention as to
the nature of the amendment relating to
the Ocian Mail Steamers incorporated into
tho naval appropriation bill on tho last
night of the Session of Congress. Wo sup
posed it contained tho vetoed provision
surrendering the power of Congress to ter
minate by notice tho extra allowance to
the Collins line. But the fact is it only
made the necessary oppropriations for the
year in conformity with existing contract?,
the necessity of doing which nobody dispu
ted. Hence the unanimity with which it
was voted.
The facts relating to the Collins line are
briefly these :
In 1 847, Collins and his associates pro
posed to build five Steamers adapted to war
purposes, subject to be taken by the Gov
ernment at any time when needed at an
appraifed value, and to transport the mails
from New York to Liverpool and back for
ten years, twenty times a year for 8385,-
000 a year, or 19,250 per round trip.
The Government accepted this offer.
Collins proceeded to build some of the
Steamers, but soon complained of want of
funds, and applied to the Government for
aid. The Government complied, and ad
vanced 835,000 per month on each of two
or throe Steamers until they were comple
ted. These advances havo yet been repaid
in very small part Some two or three
hundred thousand dollars are yet due.'
In 1850, the mail service commenced in
one of rhe Steamer's, and soon after anoth
er was completed and put into the Line,
ond finally four were completed. The
fifth Steamer has never been built.
In 1852, Collins applied to Congress
for another extra allowance, alleging that
he had lost money, Ac., &c. The Baltic
was bcought round into tho Potomac, mem
bers of Congress were feasted and other
wise plied, and tho extra ollowance was
granted to tho tune of $473,000 per an
num. The number of round trips was in
creased to twenty-six per annum, making
the aggregate compensation 8858,000 per
year, or 833,000 per trip. The act making
this allowance contained a proviso that after
the 31st of December 1854, Congress might
terminate tho extra allowance would make
good their losses.
At tho recent session, Collins applied to
CongreM to givo up the power of termina
ting the extra allowance by giving notice,
and thus virtually to subject tho whole mail
service between New York and Liverpool
to the absolute control of a gigantic mo
nopoly, free from all supervision or efloc.
tive check by Congaess.
This was consented to by the House,
Messrs. Olds and Disney of this State,
heretofore strcneuous oyponents of the mo
nopoly, now voting to surrender even the
power of terminating the extra allowanco.
In the Senate the proposed surrender was
rigorously resisted, but was finally carried
by a majority of one vote. The earnest
opponents of the monopoly, both in the
House and in the Senate, were in favor of
giving the notice immediately to terminate
thj -extra allowance, but were out numbcr
od b tho old ond new friends of it. They
were even more earnestly opposed to Sur
rendering the power to give the notice,
but were outnumbered in this also.
The Bill, embodying tho surrender, pas
sed both Houses, and was vetoed. The
amendment, incorporated in the Naval Ap
propriation Bill, simply made the necessa
ry appropriations, without any such sur
render. It was not therefore obnoxious to
the objections which justified and required
the veto.
: The Senators fr&n Ohio voted uniform
ly against tho monopoly. We hbpo the
next Congress will give the notice. Oh'
A.Two line are very covenient to till
out with.

The N. Y. Express sees deterioration in
store for the Anglo Saxon Race if we
presume to incorporate Cuba and Central
America and the Sandwich Islands into
the Union and an amalgamation of races
should ensue. The editor says:
It is impossible to look at a Kanaka, or
a Chinaman, or even nt a Creole, of mixed
negro and Indian blood. and to feel a
disposition to share with him, iu making
and obeyinij laws. Hitherto we havo
preserved the purity of our race and it
is the preservation of that purity which has
I lYinrln ila na n n 1 ci 1ml mi
the high descended Caballeros and Hidal
gos that at first settled Mexico, Peru, and
other Spanish American States. That
purity is sadly to bo jeoparded, if we go
on, and absorb, and incorporate with us,
the Spanish, Negro-Indian races of Mexi
co, or if we go on over among the Kana
kJs, and stretch ourselves among the Ja
panese and Chinese. Indeed, already in
California, in consequence of the immense
outpourings of Chinese there, it is no lon
ger a dream, but a question of practical im
portance, what is to be done with these
Cbinose, who, under our naturalization
laws, have as much right to be naturali
zed, and to vote, as have the Irishman or
German, who come here? The whole
nature of the Anglo Saxon man revolts
from a political and social amalgamation
with the Eastern breeds and races of men,
as much as from the negro, but if
that amalgamation could take place, as in
theory some advise, the experiment would
ond with us; just as it has with the Span
iards in our utter degrcdation.
To Young; Men at School.
Those to whom we refer is a class of
young men, who attend the winter schools,
and are so disorderly, and in somo cases
determined not to obey the teacher, that
things are rendered trying and disagreea
ble; and the usefulness of the school is
much prevented. They are from 12 to
14 years of ago, up to 20. It is not com
mon to find female pupils of these ages
that make trouble. There is generally too
much pliancy, delicacy and refinement in
them for this. Man baa roughness in his
nature, and unless he exercises sslf-control,
he will go far astray.
In few observations for the benefit of
this class, lot it bo said that your teacher
may not be right in every course he takes,
nor ia everything ho docs; but then it is
not for you to correct him or to be reveng
ed on him for any acts that are not just
what they should be, by disorder at school.
He is to be approached and advised by the
committee, or by your parents, or it may
be by yourselves in a private manner if
he judges you wrongfully, or does not help
you in your studies as you have need
But it is often the case that it is the de
termination on the part of a few on the
first day or week of tho school, and some.
timoRovcn before it commences, not to like,
and to bo disorderly. This is unfair and
unjust. ., . .. ., 1
Now what can be gained by disrespect
to the teacher, and by ungoverned couduct
at school Is it any valuo to you to pre'
vent the peace and quietness of the school.
and thereby havo many that attend, bin
dered in their studies, and time and mon
ey lost? ' Do you wish to lose tho preciotiH
; oppnrt unit tcs aflrjrdod you of getting that
knowledge that will be more valuable than
gold? Have you not self-respect enough
to conduct with propriety and decorum?
Do you not wish to act the part of gentle
men? We appeal It all that is honorable
in you not to let yourselves down by op
position to the teacher, and to the disgrace
that attends the trouble you may make io
the school. Be kind and respectful towards
the one that has charge. Be orderly and
polite, instead of being wayward, coarse
and vulgar. It is the direct way to raise
to places of usefulness, fame and peace.
Etccter Newt-Letter.
SQrSrEctLATlOK. Many years ago a
man, named W m. Bennett entered a half
quarter section of land iu South Chicago.
He was afterwards compelled to leave the
State for some crime. Rumor said he was
in the Missouri Penitentiary, and many
efforts have been made to find him by those,
who desired to purchase the land. Mean
time it has been improved and has passed
through' various hands, and is now worth
a million and a half of dollars. The Chi
cago Press says a well known gentleman
of that city has been down South some
where, has found Bennett, and has ob
tained a deed for the entire tract. He
will commenco actions of ejectment against
those who are on the land. O. S. Jour
