ALEXANDRIA: j
TUESDAY MORNING, NOV. I. 1836.
■ -r
Ohio.—The majority for Vance as Governor
of Ohio is 6,109. The Whig majority for mem
bers of Congress is about 800 more than for
Governor; and the aggregate Whig majority for .
members of the Legislature more than 3,000 j
more. And yet, owing to the “infamous” ap- i
portionment law passed at the last session of the ;
Legislature «ith special intent to prevent the j
election of Mr. Ewing as Senator, the Van Bu
renites will muster a majority of five or six on
joint ballot. The Cincinnati Gazette shows
how this minority majority could be non plueeed j
by a resort to the Democratic Republican process j
-la la mode Maryland. But as true Republi-;
eans never wish to violate the letter or sprit of j
the Constitution the “apportioned” majority will
be allowed to have its own way. J
Maryland.—The way things are now going in
Maryland, it is probable, by exertion, a very
large Anti-Van Buren majority will he given at
the election this month for Presidential electors.
By the by, what is Gov. Veazey doing? Is he
not about to take some steps in the present crisis,
as the Chief Executive officer of the State? We
‘ think it is high time for him to be up and doing.
Vermont.—Hon. Samuel Prentiss (Whig) has
been elected by the Legislature of \ ermont, Se
nator of the U. S. from that state, for six years
from the 4th of March next._
The opposition say that they can and certain
ly will succeed in Pennsylvania and Georgia at
the Presidential Election. Let them at least try
to make good their words. We have, ourselves,
no faith in Pennsylvania,but feel astiong assu
rance that Georgia is lost to Mr. Van Buren.
All that we see on the subject confirms our opin
ion.
Money Market in New York.—The New
York Express of Saturday gives a lamentable
account of the pressure in the Money Market in
that city.. It says: “The past week has been one of
severe pressure upon almost every business man
in the community. Encouraged by the hope
that the secretary of the Treasury would do
something to relieve or lessen the pressure
stocks on Monday and Tuesday advanced a
little. The hope, however, of relief from the
Treasury Department was soon found to be false
and every thing if possible, is worse than it was
a week since. The rates of interest are very
high, and confidence materially impaired.— j
Some of our heaviest firms unable to con-1
tend with the storm, have been compelled to
yield to it notwithstanding their means were j
abundant to meet all their demands. Our,
Banks have been compelled to be more rigid ,
than usual in their demands—it having become
necessary to square up their accounts and cur
tail most of their business. Wall street for the
w hole week has been flooded with the best notes
in the city at 2. 2J and in some cases 3percent
a month.”
Attorney General Butler and the Press —
In reply to an inquiry made in this paper rela
tive to the signing of a circular by Attorney
General Butler, in which reference was made
‘to the present condition of the American press’
we are informed by the New York Commercial
that a number of philanthropic gentlemen ol
that city and elsewhere, in view of the painful
moral condition of the country, have tor months
past been engaged in farming a society for the
promotion of useful knowledge, on the plan of
Lord Brougham’s association for the same ob
ject in England. Among other measures adopt
ed was the issuing of a circular, setting forth j
tire design and requesting information and ad
vice upon various subjects. The low condition j
ot a large portion of the American press was |
adverted to in the circular, and it was from that!
portion of it that the quotation now used against j
Mr. Butler, was derived. The work is one of !
enlightened philanthropy, and we hope good
will follow the effort.
Interesting Trial.—A case involving matters
of great interest to the creditors of the Bank of j
Maryland, and the community, who have been j
so alive to all inquiries relative to the failure of;
that institution, is now under trial in Baltimore j
County Court. It is a suit instituted by Messrs. J
Morris and R. W. Gill, two of the trustees, a- j
gainst an agent of the bank, for the recovery of,
one or two hundred thousand dollars.
Fuel —Much complaint exists in this Districtj
at the high price of Wood and Goal. We notice ;
that in Washington calls are made for both arli- j
cles. _____________
Pictures in the Capitol.— The committee ap- ;
pointed at the last session of Congress to select j
artists for painting the pictures designed for the j
vacant panels in the Rotunda of the capitolj
have designated certain artists, the most emi
nent in the country, and required them to fur
nish designs for the large pictures, which are to ;
be submitted to the committee, and from an in- j
spection of these designs the committee propose
to select a sufficient number of artists to fill allr
the panels but two, giving one panel to each ar
tist.
Two of the panels have been positively assign
ed to an artist of high reputation, whose name
is not given. This information we gather from
the New York Commercial. We had thought
that there were, in all, only/oar panels to be fill
ed. __ i
•The Poor Rica Man and the Rich Poor Man.*
—The above is the quaint title of a book of sto
ries, written by the author of “Hope Leslie.” It
is dedicated to the Rev. Joseph Tuckerman, the
poor man’s friend. The stories illustrate the
character of the rich who do not give, and those
who are poor and do not withhold.
#
JEJ-We request our friends in the neighbor* j
ing counties to transmit us, by mail, at the ear-,
jicst possible opportunity, returns of the votes
taken in their respective counties on Monday
next.___
METEoa.—The Boston Gazette informs us that
a brilliant meteor was seen at Greenfield, Mass,
on Sunday evening beforelast,between seven and
eight o’clock. It crossed tho horizon in a direc
tion from North West, and disappeared in the
South West. It had the appearance of a ball of
fire nearly as large as »he sun, and left a lumi
nous trail behind it. T wo or three minutes alter
it disappeared, n loud explosion was lmard,
which shook the buildings in the village. About
11 o’clock, the same night there was another
similar appearance and explosion.
A meteor was also seen the same evening at
Albany, which is represented to have appeared
as large as the moon, and to have made a noise
trsembling distant thunder.
The William Gibbons.—According to a state
ment given to the editor of the Elizabeth City
Herald, and published in that paper, the con
duct of the crew of the Wm. Gibbons to the
passengers was worse than that which might
have been expee'ed of highway robbers. 1 he
I passengers were not. it seems, permitted to
lake their baggage on shore when they left the
j boat; but “some of the crew, the firemen par
ticularly, got drunk, armed themselves with
knives, and went to work, cutting open the
trunks and other baggage, which they robbed
of money, jewelry, clothing, and every thing
1 else valuable, and then sank the trunks in ihe
' bottom of the boat. Even the dressing and
other boxes belonging to the ladies did not es
cape them; which were also broken open and
rifled of their content*. Such w as the destitute
condition of some of the passengers (says the
Herald) on their arrival here, that they were
obliged to made a loan to defray their expenses
to Charleston; while these pirates (for they are
| no bettr r) are gone off w ith their plunder.”
| One of the lady passengers begged these ruf
1 fians to let her have even a cloak bag. which
| contained some clothing for her infant, but it
| was refused! It is supposed that their plunder
I in money, jewelry, and clothing amounted to
at least 4.000 or $5,000.
-
Dreadful ruit and Explosion at oea. — by an
1 arrival at New York, we icarn that the br:g
Ariel from that port, bound to Carthagena. with
600 barrels of flour and half a ton of gunpowder
on board, took fire at mid: iszht on the 31st of
August. The captain, crew, and nine passen
gers were aroused from their sleep by thedread
ful cry of “ship on fire!” They escaped, most
ly in their night clothes, by means of ti e long
boat. In about twenty minutes, and when they
were not more than half a mile from the brig,
ishe blew v>p w\th a terrific explosion, which
seemed to shake and rend the very elements.—
| They landed on the island of St. Domingo, on
the 4th of Sept, and ariivcd in New York on
Thursday. The Ariel and her cargo were in
jsured in the sum of §30.000.
Twenty-five Lives Lo>t in the St. Lawrence.
— During the late gale there w as a great deal of
damage done to the rafts that were pos ing
down the St. Lawrence to Quebec. Lake St.
Peter’s is some fifty miles bclow^ Montreal, and
its navigation very dangerous in bad weather.
In addition to The loss of property, twenty-five
persons have been drowned.
One raft of red and white pine, belonging to
Messrs. Poupard and Raymond, totally wreck
ed, from which twelve men were lost, among
whom were two brothers of Mr. Raymond.—
Another raft, the property of Messrs Rogers &
Thompson, of Perth, was found scattered upon
the beach, and all of the crew, thirteen in num
ber, have perished. Eight of the latter crew
were found upon the shore in an awful state of
mutilation, amongst whom w’as the pilot Jere
miah Campbell, one of the oldest and most ex
perienced pilots on the river.
Great Fire in Newark.—It is with extreme
regret that we have to announce a very destruc
tive fire in Newark. New Jersey, which has des
troyed property estimated at two hundred thou
sand dollars, about one-half of which, we un
derstand, w*as insured. Of this sum. 825,000 is
insured in the Mutual; 810,000 in the New Jer
sey, and $2000 in the Mechanics’ Company of
Newark; about $10,000 in the Hartford Compa
ny, and about $30,000 in the N. York and Phi
ladelphia companies.
The fire commenced about twenty minutes
past three on Friday afternoon in Ward’schand
lery store, on the south side of Market street
near the corner of Broad street, and owing to
the difficulty of procuring a sufficientsupply of
water, it spread with fearful rapidity, east and
west of Ward’s premises, and by 8 o’clock in
the evening two thirds of the block, including
all the buildings in Broad street, between Mar
ketand Mechanic street, about twenty buildings
on Market street, and nearly as many more on
the north side of Mechanic street, were razed
to the ground—as were also about a dozen
small wooden buildings, principally occupied by
poor families, on the south side of the last men
tioned street._
Charleston and Cincinnati Rail Road.—The
books for subscription to the Stock of the Rail
Road Company, have in Charleston, closed.—
When the result was declared, that Charleston
had subscribed a million and a half of dollars,
a large body of citizens assembled in the Ex
change, at the time, greeted the announcement
with three hearty cheers; and for some hours
afterwards groups of persons might be seen
congratulating each other with an earnestness
of manner that evinced the deep interest they
felt in the success of this gigantic enterprize,
and the confidence they had in its speedy com
pletion.
Horrible Case of Murder —We learn fromi
the N. York Courier and Enquirer, that a quar- \
rel lately took place on board the steamboat
Cygnet, on her passage from New Orleans to
St. Louis.. The Captain got into a quarrel with
one of his hands, and in the course of the fracas
the Captain pushed the man into the engine
while in full operation, and the poor fellow was
crushed into a thousand pieces. The Captain
was held to bail in the sum of ten thousand do!-.
jars. If the act were done purposely, why was !
he held to bail at ah? i
Richmond and Frcdgricksbphg Railroad —An* ;
1 other section of the road has been finished, and
the cars now come to Downer’s Bridge, fifteen
and a half mites from Fred’g. The remainder of
the work is rapidly hastening to completion; and
there is no doubt that the entire line from Rich
mond to Fredericksburg will be in use by Christ-'
mas.
I
! We learn, says the Buffalo Journal, from a
gentleman from Erie, Pa. that the stock of the
Erie railroad, (connected at the state line with
the C'assadag.t and Erie railroad, and thus with
the New Y«»rk and Erie railroad.) has been tak
on up.
1 Tire American and Atlantic Insurance Com
panies of N. Yoik, have presented Capt. Cox,
of the brig Mary Ann, with a chronometer, of
the value of $.300. as a testimonial ol their appro
bation of his conduct in saving his vessel when
ashore on the coast ol Florida, and in opposing
the wreckers in their endeavors to take his ves
sel and cargo to Key Weet.
I The Grand Jury ol Pittsylvania county after
a patient examination of witnesses for the pros
ecution, refused to find a ‘True Bill’, in the case
of the Com ns on wealth vs. Janies M. Smith and
Marcellas B’II, charged with an assault on Mr.
Terry, the junior editor of the Danville Repor
ter, the particulars of which have heretofore ap
peared in our columns.
; The sporting characters of Boston are taking
and offering heavy bets on the completion
of the Thames tunnel and the Bunker-hill moiiu
| ment—that is to say, on the question which will
be completed first. Odds at present are in favor
of the tunnel.
Marshall College, Pa.—This institution is lo
cated at Merer rsburg, in Franklin county, Pa.
and has commenced under very flattering pros
: pects. Rev. F. A. Rauch is President. The ex
penses at this College are comparatively small,
and the studies such as are pursued at the first
institutions of learning in the country. We
hope to see it thrive and prosper.
The Dutch galliot arrived here a few days
i ago, was loaded with wheat. We understand
' that additional arrivals from foreign ports, with
grain, are expected.
We have received within the last few days
several notices of deaths and marriages which
cannot be inserted, because they are sent to us
( anonymously, and may, therefore, not be cor
1 reef. A responsible name is r< quired with tin se
notices, as we have before remarked twenty
times, at least.
j We hear nothing more of the rumored remo*
; vals we spoke ol some few day’s ago. Has “the
attempt and not the deed, confounded” the
party executioners? This is not in character;
and we, therefore, only suppose that the axe is
! held in suspense over the heads of the victims
to add as much additional terror to the -punish
ment as possible.
FROM MEXICO.
■ ■
! The arrival of the schooner Greole at New
Orleans from Tampico, on the 16th ult.. brings
news from Mexico of some interest. We coin-1
pile from the New Orleans papers the annexed j
items of intelligence:
It seems that the Mexicans are commencing !
operations in good earnest. Captain Cormier i
states that, previous to his departure, news had j
reached Tampico (on the 2d instant,) that 6.000 j
men were on their march from the city of Mexi- j
co for San Louis de Potosi; I he 1.500 men, who j
have been under training ai Tampico, were at- j
so to march for the same place, and form a'
junction with them. He also relates that, be- |
sides these troops, numerous volunteer compa
nies were said to be marching from different
parts of the country, so that, when united, they
will make a very formidable force. He con
firms the recent statement made by Capt. Ar
naux,of tne Emperor, “that whatever dissen
sions or parry feelings may exist among the
Mexicans, in other respects, they appear to be
unanimous in the prosecution of this object.”—
Captain C. represents Tampico as perfectly
tranquil. The approaching campaign against
Texas was the engrossing topic of the day, al
most to the entire exclusion of every other.
voluntary suuscripuons were uemg made ,
throng!) all the principal cities of the Republic,
for the purpose of aiding the Government in
putting an end to the war in Texas. The conti i- j
butions continued to be small.
A convoy left Mexico on the 22d August, un
der the conducta of Col. Francisco Gnzay,
transporting the munitions, the linen and milita
ry stores of the army against Texas.
The message of the President of the United i
States, relative to the question of the acknow- j
ledgment of the independence of Texas, seem- !
ed to have made great impression in Mexico. )
There came passengers in the Creole, Capt. !
Greene, officers and crew of the United States
cutter Dallas, which was lost in the Bay of Tam
pico on the 2ifh ult. She struck in attempting
to go over, and drifted to the north side of the '
Bay, where she was abandoned. Happily, no
lives were lost.
The Texan army is encamped on the Labaca
river, in two brigades of 2.200 men. under Gene-:
rals Rusk and Green. All the men are volun
teers from the United States—the Texans hav
ing retired to their farms, reported to be in high
cultivation with good crops. A Texan armed
vessel lately cruised along the coast of Mexico
without meeting a Mexican vessel. The Tex
ans are now equipping two armed vessels at :
Galveston—the schooner De Kalb, to carry IS
guns, and the 6chr. Viper, lately the Passaic, of 1
New Orleans. ’ |
FROM FLORIDA. I
The following private letter, containing some
highly interesting particulars concerning the
present state of the Florida war, has been kind
ly furnished us for publication.
Fort Brooks, Florida, 8th Oct. 1836.
By the last boat t wrote you, l mentioned that
Echo Hajo, one of the friendly Indians, had
gone out with a white flag to otter peace to our
red brethren. Two days ago he returned, and
gave the following account of his mission. Al
ter travelling three days in an east southeast di
rection, they saw two women in a hammock,
who told them that their husbands were out
hunting, but that an old man lived fifteen miles
off, who would show them the camp of the hos
tiies. On reaching the hut of the old man. they
were informed that the camp was about fifteen
miles off, and he accompanied the party to give
notice of their approach and peaceable inten
tions. The minister plenipotentiary and his
suite were halted in the vicinity or the spot, and
their conductor proceeded on to give notice.—
Presently a party approached and told them to
advance. The band was on an island, and a
path through the water was the only mode of
access without sw imming, and this of course,
coul l only be followed with a good guide. \\ hen
the mission reached the immediae neighbor
hood of the camp, it was again halted. Two
principal characters attended from the hostile
camp. The negotiation began by the question
from the hostile chief—‘'What have ye come
here for?” To w hieh Echo Hajo replied — “Y\ e
have com*' to offer you peace.” Chief. “YY hat
have vou to do with the business? ’ Echo Ilajo
“We have entered into the service of the United
States for the purpose of persuading you to
make peace.”
Chief. ‘-YY’e have had a great many fights—
in all o! which we have been successful. Seve
ral parties of white men have intruded into our
country, we have kilied them, and shall serve
you in the same way. The whites caused the
war—they made their own bed, and now they
must lie on it. We are ready to fight u great
deal more. It is said that you Creeks have come
down here to get negroes. YY'e have plenty of
them.”
In the course of the talk the young warriors
seized their rifles, and were about to put the
minister and his suite to death, hut the chief pre
vented them. After talking some lime about
tiieir former battles and present prospects—both
of which they considered glorious—the chief
told them that the celebrated negro Abram and
i many others had been prophesying. These
learned gentlemen informed them that Cod was
in their favcw; that he had aided their cause, as
i they had only hM twenty warriors during the
j whole war, .and that he \\ ould continue to aid
! them. They mentioned as an evidence of the
power of the prophets, that te fore the death of
i General Thompson, Abram had prophesb d that
he would he killed by Indians while walking a
; bout his place, and that such had subsequently
| been the fact.
The women offered them food. Echo Hajo
asked them if they had any dressed buckskins
to sell They replied m the affirmative, and he
i bought fifteen of them. Money, said they, would
be proper pay, though tftey would rather have
preferred some clo h stuffs, if t ey had brought
any such, things with them,
i On departing the minister was informed that
he had narrowly escaped death; ami that should
(such another visit be made to them, they would
! hear w hat they had to sav and then kill them
— So that peace has not yet returned to ties
I region, and we may expect a sevei e ami difficult
! campaign. Col. Lane, with seven or eight hun
dred (’reek volunteers, is here; and Gen. Jestip
1 is expected soon with the regulars from tIn*

WATERFORD POST OFFCE.
Watekfoiuj, (Va.) 25th Oct. IS30.
| Mr. Editor: The circumstances which gave
i rise to the subjoined proceedings by the citizens
1 of this (own are briefly these:
I The Postmaster of Waterford having defer
1 mined to resign bis place, inlonn- d the Post*
| master General of his intentions. and at the
»aine :i.ne nominated a worthy . nd respectable
[ citizen as his successor. That person being so
unfortunate as to belong to the \\ hig party, hi*>
nomination was disregarded by the Department
and instructions were forwarded by the Post
master General to a distinguished member <f
the Van Huron party, living at a considerable
distance from this place, and having no inteie>t
in ihe office, to designate some suitable individ- i
ual of the party t<» fill I lie vacant office.
Enquiries were made as to the standing and
capacity of ihe different Van Huron men ol the
town, and one was selected, whose recommen
dation was sent to the Department before the
citiz ns of the place were appiized tiiat a
scheme was in operation by a combination I e
tween the Postmaster General and ids political
friends by which they were to be indecently
stripped of the humblest rights of freemen, in
formation having reached them of the attempt
that was making to confer the office without any
regard to the wishes of the people, upon one of
their own party, a meeting of the citizens w as
called, at which Dr. Thomas M. Bond presided
as Chairman, and J. T. Griffith acted as Secre
tary, w hen :he following resolutions were adopt
ed. The gentleman recommended by the Van
Huron party was subsequently appointed to the
office, and though he entered upon its duties
with the unanimous consent of thecitizens. (ha
ving been nominated without his knowledge.)
they cannot refrain from publicly expressing
their abhorrence of the principles upon which
the offices of the country are distributed, as
well as the means by which those in power se
cure them as ‘ spoils” for the u^e of their ow n
party.
Resolved, That the Post Offices of this Coun
try nre established for the convenience of the
people, and are not intended to be used as the
‘‘spoils of a party” lor rewarding political ser
vices, or purchasing political friends.
Resolved, That the people of this town and ,
neighborhood are competent to select a suitable
person for their Postmaster, and that they will
not submit to dictation from any quarter, es
pecially when the object of that dictation is to
bestow’ the office upon any individual as a re
ward for polilical opinions.
Resolved. That, in the opinion of this meet
ing, it was the du'y of ihe Postmaster General,
upon the vacal ion of the Office, to ha ve afforded
the citizens interested an opportunity of making
a selection from amongst themselves, of a suita
ble person to fill the office, and that, in neglect
ing to do so, he has failed to discharge his duty
as a faithful and impartial public officer.
Resolved, That the measures which have
:>een used by persons who do not reside amongst
ns. for the purpose of procuring the office lor
iorne individual of the Van Buren party, have
Deen officious and intrusive, and, as such '
ieserve and receive our indignant reprehension! j1
Resolved, That the proceedings of this meet- !
ling be signed bvtha Chairman and Secret*
and printed in the Leesburg papers.
