I Alton Telegragh inllict.s on its readers no.ii ly two mortal columns lo prove that the (io xeruor has nt the power to comply with the oili condition ol 'tho bondholders who promsn to ad vance the money to complete our canal. Thai condition, il will bo recollected, reipiircs tho go vernor lo roh use all conditions contained in the canal art, (in section 11) for lott'citing the sums advanced or determining the trusts, before tho full pay rr cut to tun bondholders of their udvanccs and interest. And how does tho Telegraph prove its position 1 lSy ipioting tho first and second arti cles of our romtilutioii and showing, what nobo dy controverts, that by these the ;overnor has no power lo ubrogute a law, or part of n law of the legislature. .N'ow, is this fair I Dors not the Te legraph know that the power of the governor to comply with thn condition in ijuestion is given him in tho 21st section of the can d law, and that ho is therefore nowhere asked to uhrogatc a single wotd of any law ol tho legislature ' Vet tho Tc legrnph lias not even alluded to the 21st section of the canal law. Is the omission by design or through ignorance ! Tho Telegraph nl; falls into the nine blunder with the Sangamo Jourtisl, nml nsscrd that the bondholders come in possession of lite w hole ol the canal properly upon the inlvsnee of but a por tion of the c.iniil loan, whereas the law requires that the wholo of the loan shall first bo sub scribed. Wo last week pointed out lo tho Jour nal its error, and without repeating it here, xve hope that explanation may also stillico for the TvlegtHph. So far thn objections that harp brrn raised to tho arrangement inado by our commissioners for the completion of the r nml have been easily mi awercd, since they have all beeu founded on n misconception or misrepresentation of the terms of that arrangement, or of tho provisions of the ca nal law. And we would here say to tho Sanga mo Journal, Alton Telegraph, and other pipers (if any then) are) opposed to tho ennui, that, il they will cute fully examine tho terms of the ar rangement of tho commissioners, nml the provi sions of tho caiinl law, and learn to understand them thoroughly, and then raise fair objections, wo will discuss tho lunlter with them with plea sure, and where wu cannot answer them vn xvill yield the point. Hut we protest against this uys tem of orguili from false premises with which they have commenced. If, as wo believe, the pre. scut niruugeiiu'tit is such us will complete the ca nal and relievo the state from her disunities, it would bo criiniiuil to ihwait it by inisiepresenla tion i but if it is not calculated lo attain those ends, then that will appear only by representing itiu its (rue light.

Pork. The Cincinnati Chronicle, which annually gives a view of the pork trade rind market, at its commencement nnd elosoef ench year, thus con cludes an nrlielc on tho subject for this season : Dunttnd anil SupjJij. There are two great sources of what may be called ex traneous demand, in the I'uited States, for pork. One is the naval and commer cial marine ; and the other it for the West Indies and other foreign ports. The U. S. eonirrcts for navy pnrk at tho principal navy yards, include abom 8.000 barrels. Wo may infer, then, that the entire commercial and naval marine of the United States requires not far from 100,000 barrels of pork, and wo should think tho demand for all foreign ports nearly erpial to that. I'xtraneously, then, to the domestic consumption in families, there is an outward demand of about two hundred thousand barrels of pmk, xxhich demand in a great degree regulates the market. We do not seo from any evidence wc have, that the demand will bo materially changed from what it was last year. As to thn suppli), there are txvo circumstan ces only to be noticed. The first is that taken in the aggregate there, is, perhaps, a little lighter crop of corn, which may di minish the general feeding of hogs. Sec ondly, there is a larger stock of pork on hand at New Orleans and other ports, than iliern was last year. TIicm; tw farts will just about balance each oilier, and proiiueo no considerable, ellect on price. In respect lo the number of hogs like ly to be driven to market, xve see no ei dence that there is likely to be a deficien cy. J'he conclusion therefore is, that though the general state of tho cotintrv may auth- otizeasmall rise in price, there arc ,10 important influences to chango the rela- lions of the pork market from what they were last year. A market may rise or fall, from speculative considerations, but from real causes it seldom changes very rapidly. Education in Indiana. Hy a recent law in the state of Indiana, the board of each county, whose duty it is to transact the county businefs, is privileged to send to the Staie University, at Hloom ington, two students, free of all charges of tuition. This provision will enable about ono hundred and eighty young men, selected every four yetirs, on an average, "to obtain an etluciiiioiv eqnad to any which tho valley of tho Mississippi affords, at an expence which almost every parent, possessed of a good farm, industri ous habits, can defray; or even which a spirited young man, determined on im provement, can lay by during a few years of hired labor." Chitlic. Intelligencer. Henry Henufort, cardinal of Winchester, who xvas extremely rich, cried out upon his death-bed : 'Will not death bo hired ? must I tlic that havo such great riches ? If the whole realm of England would save my life, I am able, either by policy to get il, or hy riches to buy it.' l'rom the Journal of Commerce. The ti nla of Specie. The protectionists are to fixed to their stereotyped arguments, that thr y continue to insist upon the rmistanl iluia nf peeie froiaijlio country by our foreign trade. The fact thai our foreign trade baa brought into nnr ronntry almost all tho specie xve have ever hail, anil ihat within tht) last twtlve months it has brough in some twenty millions nf dollars which uoxv lie Inn ifd am! locked up in the vaults of the banks ; makes no diilerence with them. They still go nn vociferating that foreign trade drains thn country of spe cie. On tlie last evening nf the fair, the president cf iho American Institute deliv ered an address of nn hour and a half, in which he said 'one tliinl of our foreign commerce was with Kngland and her co lonies. The balance of her trade has been against us fur many years past, and has vatied in different years, from live mil lions even lo "is millions a year. The inij.r.riatioiis of her manufactures have been received by ns upon little more than nominal duties, while duties oppressive and prohibitory have been exacted on our produce exported to hei.' 'Willi Franco our commerce has been equally disas trous. We have taken her wines, silks, and gew gaxvs, dutv free, and swelling i ' b'llsinoc of trade against us to a great n 3 amount, to be paid in specie.' All these falsehoods, and many moro like litem, were staled in the face of an American audience ; and so gravely ilia', we dare say, many of ihe bearers supposed them iriltlis. Tlir nnu'cnnnord li'irp Iwrn lcr.ll(lilVT ,lf i,,;ini, amount to one quarter of tlic sum paid on tho proceeds of those imports when brought back lo this country ; besides iho fact, that a great portion of our duties are entirely prohibitory. The average of I'ritish duties is noi one fourth as great ns tho average of Anicrigan duties. This same enliohtener of the age ; in the course ot bis remarks, stated of Kngland, 'that to cripple our whale fishery, her duty imposed on American oil is 2(5 C 12? per ton ;' and that 'American whale bono is subject to a duty of :? per ton.' -Tho duty in Iii".land on train oil-blubber, &c., from the United Slates and all foreign fisheries, is C per ton, nnd on whale bone 2 OX per ton. The demand in I'.nrj land it is which has carried up whale bono to double its price six months ago, to tho almost unprecedented price of 50 cents a pound. And the same market has con liibutcd freely to carry up whale oil to iH present extremely high price of '10 cents per gallon. It is by such barefaced impudence as this, that Americans are im posed upon ,' the foreign antipathies arou sed, and the selfish objects of men who make Congress a machine to tax the coun try for their own private emoluments, ac complished. Not only are the statements of the pres ident of this poii'iic-fll institution untrue, but iho exact opposite of them is (rue. Uugland has placed very moderate duties on all the products of our agriculture, with the exception of tobacco, which is every-- j wliere counled a vicious luxuty, and dear ly taxed for revenue. Thousands of tons of butter, lard, cheese, beef, hams, oil, whalebone, anhes, flour, ami grain, have been exported to Ureal liritain during tho past year. That market it is, above all others, which has saved our farmers from being entirely overwhelmed by low pri ces. Hut for that market, we do not be- 1,cvc l,ial an' of 1,10 V' of the dairy, or of swine, would be at much morn than hM 'eir present prices. A perfect aval- ancut; oi inese prolines lias einue upon iho market; and llie liberal, sound policy of England modified her tai iff just in time to save our agriculture from utter prostra tion. To shut up this market, is ihe anx ious desire of a set of men, who, as un xvtsely for themselves as for the rest of us, desire to monopolize the country, for the sake of selling their own manufactures at high prices. Liberty is the home of an Amcricrn. The market of the world is the home, market for him. Principle. An army of principles will pencttate where soldiers cannot. Principle will in tho end succeed where management1 fails. It is neither tho Uhinc nor the Ocean that will arrest its progress. It marches on the horizon of the world and finally conquers all oppa-sition.- Absence, of Mind.S. Kevcrend gen tleman, in one of our country villages, in reading to his congregation the passage of Scripture "I m that I am" after read in?; tho "I am," in a fit of absenco of mind turned over two pares and went ou 'an ass and a colt the foal of nn ass" . when discovering his mistake, ho rather haslilv turned back, and exclaimed, 'that I am."
