L \ TEST FROM EUROPE. j Pv the packet ships South America, and Penn- | sylvan is, at New York, the editors of the Com- , mercial Advertiser have received their files of English papers and commercial letters to the latent dates [Aug, 24.] The lateness of the i hour at whit h they came to hand compels us to ! be very brief w ith our extracts for this morning-* The newspaper stamp duties bill was amend- j ed in the house of lords by the rejection of the clauses requiring the names of proprietors to be j registered. On its being returned, thus mutila- j ted, to the commons, the chancellor of the ex-1 chequer moved that the bili be laid aside, which was agreed to. 11c then introduced another bill precisely similar to the first except that the registration clauses were omitted, which was j lead on the JO August, and on the lbh read twice and passed. It was then sent up, and pass i ; m the house of lords on the 12th. A free conference was agreed to and held on the 11th, up >n the municipal-corporation act amendment bill, the object being to advise the commons of their lordships’reasons for insisting ! on amendments twice rejected by the commons; : but nothing of importance seems to have result ed from i*. The corporate-property bill, for Ireland, was read tw ice in the upper house on the 15th. Lord Lyndhurst gave notice that in committee lie should “re-model” several of the clauses, and this was considered equivalent to “death to the bill." in one hou^e or the other. The Jewish civil-disabilities bill was read a third time and passed in the House of Commons on the 16th. | The registration of voters bill was thrown ont j in t.ie upper House. •* * • • •• * t t i_1 i’ne church temporalities bill for ireiand was passed in the house of Lords on the 16th. On toe same day, in the Commons. Mr. Hume j called up a petition from the House of Assem- j blvof Upper Canada, and moved a lesolution j fetter some severe stiictures upon the conduct of Sir Francis Head) that “the government of that province ought to be conducted by H. M. i lieutenant governor, by and with the advice and assistance of an executive council, compos- j < \ of men possessing the public confidence, and v hose opinions and policy should be in harmo i v with those of the people, as declared by a majority of their representatives in their House c| Assembly,*' &c. &c. Sir George Grey warm iv defended the conduct of Sir Francis, and Mr. Hume withdrew his resolution. The newspaper stamp duties biil received the loyal assent on the 13th of August. Parliament was pron gued cn the 20fh by his majesty in person. A superb speaking-trumpet of silver, with gold mouth piece and sounding edge, has been presented by his passengers to captain Allen, of the Sheffield. The passage was made between the S;ci and 24th of June. Mr. N. M. llothschild’s will gives £20,000 per annum to his widow, with his House in Picca dilly and that purchased by him from the prin cess Amelia, and ail the furniture, plate and j.-wels;£ 120,000 to each of his daughters; £1000 t > each of his wife’s brothers, and £500 to each of her sisters. £10.000 to Mr. Cohen, one of the executors; some charitable donations; and the residue to be equally divided between his four s nvs, who are to continue the business exactly ns heretofore, in conjunction with the houses in \ i^nna, Frankfort and Paris. The lord mayor ot London was nneu pounds, by one ot the police magistrates, for al lowing two casks to encumber the foot-path in front of his house for a short time. Some of the London papers report the death of the celebrated professor Schlegel, at Copen hagen,on July 22, but the Times thinks the report unfounded. Mr. Ilackett played at Liverpool (Nimrod Wildfire) on the night of the 22d. with great success. The masters, mate* and crews of all the American vessels in port formed no small portion of the closely-packed audience. The immense chimney of the vitrol works of Messrs. Dobb. of Wigan, fell to the ground on the 17Ifi of August, ft was 330 fet high. No body was huit. Car,\r Fhe at Liverpool — We regret to learn that the extensive warehouse of Messrs. Sands, Hodgson & Co. has been destroyed by fire, hut at the same time, it gives us pleasure to state that these gentlemen were fully insured. About tf.no bales of cotton were burnt, The Crops.— Report speaks favorably of the wheat crop in England and Ireland, and in the south eastern counties a very considerable por tion has already been secured in excellent con dition. The prospects of the harvest in bcotiana were very fine. Liverpool, Aug. 20.— The Harvest.—Several fields of wheat and oats in this neighborhood were cut on Saturday last, apparently so far as wg .are judges of such matters, in the finest condition. The week of glorious sunshine which yq^have since had, has, no doubt, mate rially assisted and expedited the labors of the husbandman, and should the present weather continue we have no doubt that by this time next week not an ear of grain will have escap ed the sickle hereabouts, and the greater portion ot the harvest will be safely housed. 1 The important intelligence had been received from Spain, that the constitution of 1812 was proclaimed at Madrid on the 3d of August, and that on the 5th a royal decree was Usued, dis solving the National Quard of Madrid. This must have been occasioned by tear or proof of disaffection among^ the citizens composing that: body. This disaffection, however, is thought to be directed only against the existing govern ment for its inactivity or want of success in putting down Don Carlos, and not to indicate \ any disposition in his favor. 1! A French ship of the line and corvette sailed , from Brest on the 11 th of August for the coast Spain. A powerful intervention by France is still asserted and denied with great pertinacity. Orders had been transmitted to Toulon, to have all the ships in that harbor ready to sail in an hour's notice. j Gen. Evans is not dead after all. A letter dated St. Sebastian, Aug. 10, says that he is ve ry unwell, from which it may be inferred, we think, that he is still alive. The British legion was fast losing by desertion, owing to difficul ties about pay, but a large reinforcement to the French legion was expected. From the London Sun, Aug. 22. We have advices from Bayonrtfe to the 1/th inst. On the 14th Gen. Evans proceeded to Bay onne for the purpose of having an interview °"th 'Gen Harispo; but the latter was absent, and tne gallant member for Westminster, re turned to San Sebastian. The condition of the legion is deplorable. . Another change has taken place in the Span ish ministry. . The Madrid Gazette of the 15th contains the following decrees: “The constitution of 1812 is proclaimed till^ tne reassembling of the Cortes, which w ill pro nounce relative to the institutions that ought to be given to Spain. 4 M. Calatrava is appointed president of the council of ministers. “M. Ferres, minister of Finance. “M. La Cuadra, minister of the interior. “Gen. Seoane replaces Gen. Quesada. 1 “Gen. Rodil is appointed to the command ol; the Guard, charged with the general inspection ; ot militia. , , ., . . . ^r “The decree proclaiming Madrid m a state ot | siege has been recalled, and the National Guard of Madrid is reorganized. "The constitution of 1S12 lias been proclaim-. cd at Santander and St. Sebastian.” _— ■ — — COAL. 1 Many^years have not elapsed since the use of\ coal as a common fuel in this country was al* ( most entirelv confined to the families of natives ; of Great Britain, who preferred in a foreign; land the description of fuel with which their ear liest recollections were associated. At the time . of which we speak, bituminous coal was the on- ! Iv kind made use of. and gained but little favor j with Americans, owing to the sulphurous smed i and the dust which it caused to he deposited on j the furniture and throughout the apartments where it was burned. Thus the coal imported ; from England was universally preferred, and it j was only in the houses of a few that fires made j of American coal were to be seen. Gradually j the product of our own country came to be ; made use of, more on account of its cheapness than any other cause, and although here and , there one might find a crate in a breakfasting room or an office, the hickory and oak of our forests were preferred for parlors and drawing rooms. Within a few years past, the discovery of anthracite has altered the whole face of things. The cleanliness of this article, its free dom from smoke and dust, and its steady, in tense heat, have caused it to be intioduced not only into ordinary sitting rooms, but into those apartments which are appropriated to fashion ; and display, and at present we behold grates of the most costly finish and workmanship glitter ing in the drawingrooms of the most wealthy. Whilst the bituminous formation has in a mea- | sure retained its stand for manufacturing pio cesscs, for all other purposes it has been super seded by its more cleanly rival, and even the lightsome blaze of our native hickory has dis appeared from many of our hearths. ; Of the rapidity with which amnraciie nas gained upon popular favor it is almost impossi ble to form an adequate conception, particularly in the northern sections ot our country, where the pinching cold winter requires the most pow erful agents in counteracting its influence. It is ; believed that the best coal of this description is j to be found in those parts of Pennsylvania tnat border on the upper branches of the Susquehan | na, the Lehigh and the Schuylkill, where it c n I stitutes an inexhaustible source of wealth to its | possessors. So great has become the trade in | this article that thousands of persons earn a live j lihood by mining and transporting it to market, ! whilst hundreds of boats and larger vessels are I required to carry it to distant parts of the coun ! try. Our readers will be surprised to learn that from the opening of the present season to the 1 15th of August, the number of vessels that have cleared from the Schuylkill laden with anthra cite coal, has been, according to the statement of the Philadelphia Commercial List, fourteen hundred and sixty, of w hicl) fifty-five were brigs, one thousand and thirty five schooners, fourteen barges, and two hundred and eighty-one sloops. The average quantity carried by these vessels was one hundred tons, making a total of 146.000. From the commencement of the season up to the 1st of the present month, the quantity of an thracite coal which passed Fairmount locks ex ceeded two hundred and fifty-two thousand tons, worth, 85 per ton, one million tiro hundred and sixty thousand dollars. j With such facts as these before us who w ill at- j tempt to fix a limit to the new trade that will he j brought into operation through the instrumental ity of the Extension Canal leading from the Pennsylvania State works at Columbia to the tide waters of the Chesapeake Bay. The im mense coal regions of the North and \\ est branches of the Susquehanna, now' unworked and comparative! v valueless foi want of a suita ble outlet to market, will team with industry and wealth as this short and easy channel to the ; Chesapeake is opened to them, and furnish from their inexaustible sources the means of a more extensive trade than that which Philadelphia now receives from the Schuylkill and the Lehigh united. The head of the noble Bay which wa- j ters our State will be the seat of this new and , valuable commerce, from w hence it will be dis- j trihuted to Baltimore, Philadelphia, and other cities, in proportion as their enterprise is nut* forth to secure it. The Canal to tide, we are happy to state, will be commenced this fail.— Two-thirds of the whole line will be offered to contractors in a few days.— Balt. Am. Mr Benton in his late detour among the moun tains, made a practice of paying his fare where ever he went, in gold. Having paid a stage dri ver a considerable sum in yellow boys, a Whig wag persuaded the driver that the money was spurious, who thereupon went in pursuit of Ben ton, and made him take it back at point of fox, and pay him in bank notes. Compliance or a thrashing was the alternative put before him. Benton had no notes, but was under the neces sity of getting them. “In vain (exclaims our venerable cotempora- j ry) has P. P. Barbour spoken,” &c. To have clutched 5000 a year we take it, he considers no such very “vain” matter. A Dutch member of the Pennsylvania Legislature being asked what they had done for the common weal, replied I don’t know—I make too hundred dollar.” The j States Right parly of Virginia believe P P. • works the “vanities” of life by the same golden rule.—Rich. Whig-_ An Englishman by the name of James Judd, j committe'd suicide at one of the Cincinnati ho- j tels last week. The Cincinnati Whig gives the j following particulars: “Judd committed the act | standing before the looking glass, and then j walked to the bed, laid down and covered him- j self up. He lived nearly half an hour after the ; act was committed, and desired a physician to be sent for, saying he was not conscious of what he was doing, at the moment of using the razor. He had been quite unwell with a billious fever | for two or three days, and was then under the ! care of a physician. i TO THE PUBLIC. The undersigned deem it an act of justice, not to themselves alone, but to the community of which they are members, more especially to those whose generous sympathies w et o so deep ly enlisted in the cause of Texas, to make known the causes w*hich have induced them to abandon an enterprise, in which they embarked with so many fond and flattering hopes. They would have been glad to have been spared this painful task They take no pleasure in the performance of an act which may tend to check the universal current of kindness and sympathy which has been manifested by the people of Kentucky to wards the people of Texas, from the beginning <»f their revolution down to the present time* Thev have too distinct a recollection of then own’feelings when they quitted their homes, to aid the cause, as then they thought, ot cuil and religious freedom, not to know' thattbeii lctum, and this brief expose of the motives .which in duced it, will cause a pang of mortification in many bosoms which now throb with pxultution in the hope of Texan treedom. Nothing hut a sense of duty—of the obligation w oich i ests upon them to justify themselves to the world, could now impel them to expose the unhappy civil and political condition of Texas, to declare, as they now do, their solemn convictions of her to tal unworthiness of aid and sympathy. \\ e might perhaps be content with this declaiation of our opinions, but we will proceed briefly to fortify those opinions by a detail of facts. \Ve now state that our personal uusei v«n.ui. and undoubted information enabled us fully to perceive, 1st. That the present population of Texas seemed wholly incapable of a just idea of civil ar.d political liberty, and that, so far as the extension of liberal principles is concerned, it is but little moment whether Mexico 01 Texas succeed in the struggle. 2d. That the mass of the people from the high est functionary of their pretended Government to the humblest citizen, (will) but few exceptions.) are animated a’one by a desire of plunder, and appear totally indifferent whom they plunder, friends or foes. 3. That even now there is really no organiz ed Government in the country, no laws admin istered, no judiciary, a perpetual struggle going on between the civil and military departments, and neither having the confidence of the Peo ple, or being worthy ol it. We will here state one or two facts, which may tend to show the estimation in which they are respectively held by each other, and their capacity to enforce their orders. The Secretary of \\ ar came dow n with a quartermaster, and a steamboat to carry his loading, consisting of provisions, clothing, iSic. to tilt* main army. Captain Switzer, vol unteer emigrant from Ohio, who had lately ar rived, wanted some clothing for his men,, and determined that unless ho was Jirst supplied wall sucli articles as he desired, the erpeditiorushuuhl not proceed. He took possession of thefoit no der the command of Col. Morgan, loaded the cannon, and prepared to fire on them it they attempted to move without his permission. n<* then sent a file (if men on board, and^ took the vessel int«» bis ow n possession, and sent the ho norable Secretary, with his quartermaster and steamboat, back to Velasco! Auain. the Presi dent and Cabinet appointed General Lamar to the chief command of the army: the army promptly refused to leteive him, and the power and authority of the Cabinet were contemptuous ly disregarded. The army then, doubtlessly after due deliberation, resolved that the Cabinet uas either corrupt or imbecile, (probably both.) and it being necessary, in their opinion, to get rid of them, determined to do so by a summary pro cess. They theiefore sent on an officer with in structions forthwith to arrest them, and bring them on to Head Quarters, to be tried according to military usage. This order, however, was not executed, simply because the officer charg ed with its execution, had not the physical force requisite. These facts and others sufficiently demon strate to us that the Cabinet was deficient in all the requisites of a good Government, and that no one in his senses would trust himself, his re putation, or his fortunes, to their charge or con trol. Charged with treason, bribery and usur pation, weak in their councils, and still weaker in their power to enforce their orders, we per ceived at once that we must look lor safety and proper inducements elsewhere. We then turn ed our eyes to the army, and a scene still more disheartening presented itself; undisciplined, and without an effort to become so; not a roll calied, nor a drill; no regular encampment; no authority nor obedience; with plundering par ties for self emolument, robbing private indivi duals of their property. We could see nothing to induce us to embark our fortunes and desti nies with them. With these views and facts, we could but sicken and wonder at the vile decep tions which had been practised upon us; yet we are told that this people had risen up in their might to vindicate the cause of civil and reli gious liberty. It is a mockery of the very name of liberty! They are stimulated by that motive which such men can only appreciate—the hope | of plunder. They are careless of the form of; Government under which they live, if that Go- j vernment will tolerate licentiousness and disor- | der. Such is a brief, but, we sincerely believe, j a faithful picture of a country to which we were invited with so much assiduity, and such the manner in which we were received and treated. We might multiply facts in support of each ; proposition here laid down, to show the misera- j ble condition of things in Texas, and the utter impossibility that a man of honor could embark in such a cause with such men. Should it be rendered necessary,jpe may yet do so; but for the present we will pause with this remark, that if there be any, now, in Kentucky, whose hearts are animated with the desire of an honorable fame, or to secure a competent settlement for themselves or families, they must look to some other theatre than the plains of Texas. We would say to them, Listen not to the deceitful and hypocritical allurements of land specula tors, who wish you to fight for their benefit, and who are as liberal of their promises as they are faithless in performance. We are aware of the responsibility which we incur by this course.— We are aware that we subject ourselves to the misrepresentations of hired agents arid unprin cipled landmongers. But we are willing to meet it all, relying upon the integrity of our mo tives and the correctness of our course. We left our native land, our peaceful firesides, with a solemn resolution to devote our undivided en ergies to stop the course of Mexican desolation, and build up a free and flourishing common wealth. The very fact of our going sufficiently indicates the depth and sincerity of our devo tion to the cause. Our return, and the circum stances which caused it, equally proclaim cur infatuation. That others may not be alike de luded, is an additional motive with us to make this publication. Edward J. Wilson, G. L. Postletiiwaite. Lexington, Ky. Sept. 10, 1836. THE ALEXANDRIA MUSEUM.

The worst has come to pass—the spirit of Van Burenism has prostrated the Constitution of Maryland! Annapolis, Sep?. 21, 1°36. ) ] l o'clock, A. M. > At the time of my writing nothing has been done towards electing n Senate, farther than von are already advised of. The Van I uren electors have given out that they intend to leave here to-day, certainly in the steamboat lor Bal timore— whether they will or not a few houis will determine. I had hardly finished wiiting thus far, when Messrs Ellicott of Baltimore county and George of Q,ueen Anne’s, w alked into the Senate Cham ber and requested to see the manuscript book containing the record of the ; roceedings of the Electoral colleges and are now examining it.— Mr. Bell of Baltimore county has also come in. There are now twenty-four electors in the Se nate chamber. The Whigs who were m the committee room having all come out. The three Van Boren members having satis- ‘ fied themselves in their examination of the te rord, withdrew. The impression gains ground that a Senate will be elected to day—an impres , sion f am sure founded more on conjecture than ’ any thing else, and I am afraid without a suffi ! cient foundation to warrant it. \ to 12 oclock.

M. | Nothing done yet—1 have just heard that the | elector from your city says that he and his poli i ticril friends will leave here for Baltimore. He ! states further that "An address to the. people oj ! Maryland'' has been decided upon and will be j issued as soon as they arrive in Baltimore. In the address they will recommend a conven i tion of delegates front each county and the city i of Baltimore, to meet in this city early in Decem ber, to form a new constitution, and to set the present aside. I If this be trite. the rernlutn n has commenced. \Tjjr Where Kill it end] Ask the reflecting? They cantv’t tell. Ask the peaceable and order lov jng people of the State. No answer can be given. In vain may the wild and vi-innary en thusiastic, in search of some poli ical dogma 1 congenial to hris own crude notions ol govern ; merit, tell us, that this scheme for overturning | the government of the state is peaceable that ! all is now quiet, and. the present portentous | signs are the heralds of a better day. It cannot 'be so! Tae quiet that now prevails is but the i cairn that precedes the storm. Bet the scheme— i | may say vile trick—be carried our, and the ( j scene changes. The storm <>f strip* will then j r a tie—t lie bitterest animosities be generated a niong the people of Marv land. Many of tis niJ) live to see the commencement—how many may i witness its end? Happy for the honor of the | state, if the curtain ol oblivion could be drawn over the events of the last three day-! One of the incidents of to-day’s proceedings deserves to be recorded. Messrs. Macgiil, ol ; Washington.and Vansant, of Baltimore, stalked ! into the chamber to day, when Mr. Brawner of • Charles, called the attention of the members to the fact, and moved that I hey be requested to qualify. Mr. Vansant ran! and Mr. Macgiil said he could not do it! They have affected to com plain of a want of courtesy on the part of the Whigs, and Mr. Brawner, was determined that they'should not have the excuse that they had not been invited to perform their duly. Nothing has been done to-day, up to the hour , of sending this, and it is my firm conviction that, ! uo election of Senate will be made, with the con - j I sent of the Van Buren electors. S. The Van Rnren electors hare bjt here in the steamboat, awl no Senate is elected. As a sign of the times, I find that the collector of the port, Mr. Sands, has raised the National flag of our country, and has ordered a salute so 1 be fired, in honor, I supose, of one of the oldest states being blotted out of the Inion. As the | boat moves off—the drums are beating and the : guns firing. From the Annapolis Republican L.itra. Wednesday, 11 o'clock. A. M. To the fearful anticipations v.ith which we penned the announcement, that the minority of Electors had apparently formed a conspiracy to destroy the State Government, by refusing to perform the duty for which they had offered themselves as candidates, and to perform which duty they had been unquestionably elected by the people, we have now to add the melancholy an nouncement that such is understood at the hour at which we put this handbill to press, to tie their , deliberate purpose. They have neglected to! a>semble with their associate Electors to form the College—neglected to qualify as the Con- | stitution requires—and neglected to provide a Senate for Maryland, as they were bound to do. j Further—it is apprehended, that with a view of preventing any of their party from listening to or obeying the instructions of their immedi-, ate constituents in case such instructions wen I to be given, they have all agreed either to take S an oath on the holy Evangelists, not to return to the College in any event—or, what is more probable, have concluded one and .nil to resign, so as to prevent the possibility of retracting an erroneous step. We do not announce this as fact, because their proceedings being conduct ed in secret, \vc have no means of ascertaining, but such is the general report at this time in this city. Twenty-one of the E ectors are still in session waiting for the attendance of the others. The other nineteen, it is said by some of themselves, will leave the seat of Government this day. From the Baltimore. Chronicle. Latest fkom Annapolis.—The steamboat from Annapolis arrived last night, about half after eight o’clock, having on board eighteen of the Electors of Senate, who in defiance of the wish of their constituents, the plain injunction of the j Constitution, and their manifest duty, have per- | sisted in their reckless design of destroying the ' Government and Constitution of Maryland.— | All of these Electors are u hat are denominated Van Buren men A deep and indignant excite ment pervades all ranks of the population of this city, at whose most cherished i%terests this act of partisan folly and madness aims a blow which can only be averted by the immediate and ener getic action of the people of the State.—The ' lateness of the hour at which this startling r, ligencc was received prevents us from ind ; in those comments which the occasion nat v ly suggests.
