Southern Mail, during, the interesting period of
the Session of Congress, must justify an appro
priation of public money, or other measures for
the accomplishment of the object.
The Editor of the Arena may well doubt the
truth of his own observations, when he charges
me jealousy of the projected Rail Road to
Potomac Creek, which is at this moment closed
to navigation by the freeze of a single night. As
to the location of the road through Dumfries, it
is altogether unimportant; as that place, like its
neighbor, Fredericksburg, has long since ceased
to rank in the geographical enumeration of the
flourishing towns of our country.
If a Rail Road could be obtained on the said
route, with depots at convenient distances, how
easy would it be for the farmers and merchants
from Culpeper, Fauquier, and other adjacent
counties, to choose their market. It is well
known that Flour, Wheat, and Tobacco, are al
ways lower in Fredericksburg than in the Dis
trict of Columbia; and even the little town of
Occoquan usually bids higher for Wheat. The
transmission of the Mail would admit of compe
tition for the contract, which has been, for many
years, the monopoly of the Steamboat Compa
ny __no one caring to invest capital in an uncer
tain opposition. The Mail would be carried
from Fredericksburg to Washington, with ease,
in five hours, and, if necessary, in less time.—
Thousands have been appropriated by the Gov
ernment on objects ofless utility; and I do verily
believe, if active exertions were used by the
Congressional Representation from the South
ern States, including Virginia, that an appropri
ation would be granted, on a footing with that of
< the Cumberland Road, which, although deemed
unconstitutional, has ever been considered a
measure of absolute necessity, in the regular
transportation of the United States’ Mail.

Dumfries, January 4, 1834.
The Weather—At the Museum on Friday, the
Thermometer ranged from 26 to 28; on Satur
day, from 14 to 26; on Sunday, from 20 to 23,
throughout each day; and on Monday, at 8 A.
M., 10; at 12, M., 26. It is, therefore, presumed
that Winter has made a commencement in ear
nest. . __
items and remarks.
Cobbett complains that, in return for the mild
and forbearing manner In which he has always
conducted himself towards others, he is now
cruelly used. The world are not, perhaps,
aware of the degree in which he possesses the
milk of human kindness. When a man’s lite
has been so remarkably void ot otfences, it may
De thought hard that he should be requitted by
unrelenting persecution.
The population of the Spanish monarchy may
be estimated at 14,159,000; its revenue is about
£5,850,000, and its expenditure about £6,300,000
this last item embraces a sum ot §660,000 for
ihe royal household and family, of £1,960,000
for interest ot floatng and other debts, sinking
fund, &c., and of £2,800,000 for the War De
partment.
Dr. Tytler, a gentleman long resident in In
dia, alleges, upon the ground of long experience
and a most active investigation of fact connect
ed with the progress of the disease in that coun
try that cholera was produced in its awful vio
lence, in 1817, by the consumption of the rice the
growth of that year, which had become delete
rious from being harvested before it was ripe, &
from a prevailing scarcity having caused the
worst kinds to he consumed.
A party of Quaker gentlemen, are about to
go a pleasure voyage, from London to tne So
ciety Islands!!!
It seems that in Paris, the ladies have a par
ticular part of the Exchange appropriated to
their use, and frequent it daily to deal in stocks.
This practice very naturally disgusted the e
mtimate sovereigns of the Change; and the
President of the Tribunal of Gommerce has
recently issued an order depriving tfte laaies or
iheir places; and commending them to the nioie
appropriate duties of their sex.
The Russians are using large blocks of wood
set up endways, for their street pavements.
Lord Brougham’s general despatch of busi
ness has been highly commended by his admi
rers—and is often set in odious contrast witn
the dilatoriness of Lord Eldon, who is known
io have had some cases before him from his ap
pointment as Chancellor, till he had retired—a
period upwards of29 years. But Broughams
adversaries give him credit for despatch also
of another kind: A late English periodical as
serts that it wTas rumored he once wTote three
letters, made three curates, read three newspa
pers, and D3~drank three bottles of wine “ in
Three Quarters of an Hour.”«£lS Credat Ju

A young couple in the west of Scotland, after
the usual term of courtship, fixed a day for the
wedding. In the meantime, the lady thought
proper to change her mind, and drew up with
another man. The disappointed lover, enraged
at this conduct, prosecuted the lady for dama
ges—an account of which, publicly pioduce ,
there appeared not only the expenses of furms -
mg a house, but a charge for the loss of tune
sustained by him in this manner—" To so ma

A Pleasant Alternative.—A correspondent of
the National Intelligencer, addressing the mem
bers of Congress on the want of accommmJa
tions at the capitol for spectators, says—** 1 ne
Hall of the Senate is much smaller than the Hall
of the House. The galleries are much smaller
—but ladies are not inaccessible.” It must be
•’juite comforting to know that if one cannot get
into a gallery he can have access to a lady.
Mrs. b-desired Doctor Johnson to give
his opinion of a new w'ork she had just writ
ten; adding, that if it would not do, she begged
him to tell her, for she had other irons in the
fire and in case of its not being likely to suc
ked, she could bring out something else.—
‘Then,’said the Doctor, after having turned
over a few of the leaves, ‘I advise you madam,
to put it where your other irons are.*
D3* The Citizens of Loudoun, of all political
parties, are invited to meet at the Court House

There have been very few parcels
at market, but notwithstanding the extreme
scantiness of the supply, there has been a fur
ther material reduction in prices, in consequence
of the continued scarcity of money. A parcel
• of very handsome red was in market some
days ago, but no offer above $1, could be ob
tained, for it, and it was placed in store. This
morning a sale of prime red received by the
Rail Road, was sold at $1, being the best and
the only offer made for it. We quote fair good
to prime reds to-day at 90 to 100 cents. W e
know of no transactions in white wheats, and
