Manufacturing Districts or Eng- j
hwd.—The London correspondent of the N.
Y. Courier wriies,—"The state of the manu
factoring districts remains much depressed;
but not worse than at the time of y our last ac- !
counts. The failures have been numerous and
extensive, particularly at Manchester and at
Paisley, in Scotland, which is principally 'n
the shawl trade, and where scarcely a solvent
house is said to remain. There are, however,
some reasons for supposing that mercantile
•flairs may be about to revive in this country, j
for the foreign exchanges have become more
favorable, and the bullion is increasing at the
Bank of England."
The cultivation of cotton in the East
Indies, on the American system, it is said is
proceeding most satisfactorily. One of the
euperintendents says, "It only requires the
means, constant application, decision, indus· j
try, and perseverence, to make this beautiful
and productive country the largest producer of j
cotton in the world.1'
The Britannia brought about 25,000
letters, the postage on which amounts lo a
bout $7000. The number of letters for New
York was S000, on which the postage a
mounted to $2700 ; Philadelphia 1800, post
age $550; Baltimore 600, postage $175 ; Al
bany 273, postage $65;Charleston 503, postage
1137; Mobile 320, postage $123; New O-leans
500, postage $439.
The losses sustained by the American
Steam Navigation Company, to whom the
President and British Queen belonged,amount
to about 60/. or 70/. per share, on the whole
amount of the paid up capital.
The Louisville, Ky.· Journal of the 20the
: gives the following account of a mail robbery
**in that region. It says—
The mail stage, which left Louisville at three
oYlock on Tuesday morni,ig, foi Frank fort, was
robbed about twelve miles from this city; two
trunks and one box, belonging to passengers,
being cut from the hoot. The hox and trunks
were subsequently found in a hemp field, near
the roan, broker, open and rifled. About $50
in money were taken, and nearly $500 worth
of clothes and other articlts A $600 draft
jn one of the trunks wns recoverd by its owner,
not having been found by the villains
Medical College in China.—A writer
in the United Stales Gaze' te asks leave of
the editor to offer a few sober questions and
objections as follows :
Have'lit we enough misery and sickness at
home to attend to, and Hospitals and alms
houses to support, without takmy upon us that
enormous load of disgusting disease of the
Empire of China. The limes are hard—the
people are distressed — the States and Nation
are embarrassed and perplexed, and in re
spect to pecuniary matters tin* present may,
with iiο small degree of propriety, he called
our dark hour of commercial despondency.—
Besides, how do we know that any ol our
young graduates in medicine will he so mis
sionary in their spirit as to go on such an en
terprise ; and if they did, where is the evi
deuce that Chinese prejudice and superstition,
&c., wilt permit the application of our doubt
less better plan of medical practice beyond
ihe scattered poor outside of tiie gates and
walls of China.
fCr*There is another question touching
this matter, which, it seems to us, may he
taken into consideration, viz. Why should
we, Americans, be at the trouble and expense
of establishing a medical coilege, hospital,
&c In a British Colony ?—Tor, ii China be not
a British colony now, she will be in a few
jr^ars, beyond all doubt.
The Louisville Journal furnishes the follow -
ing sketch of rather a daring movement of a
young lady. Doubtless she has become the
••lion" oi the place ere this lime.
Λ Louisville Belle.—Λ lew nights ago, one
of the most accomplished Mies of this city,
whilst sleeping in the same apartment with
Mrs, Charles VV. Thrnston, wit ο is in feeble
hea'th, was suddenly roused by a slight noise.
Looking around her, she saw a ruffian, evi
dently a robber, at a window, in the act of
raising it. Leaping up, she bade him depart.
He hesitated a moment; but, seeing that the
two ladies were alone in the loom, he pro
ceeded with a terrific frown in effecting his
entrance. Thereupon the young !ady instant
ly seized a large pistol that chanced to be in
the apartment; cocked it, presented it at him,
and declared her determination to blow his
brains out if he did not instantly ffy.: He
knew from her.conntetwanee that she would
be as good as her word, and, snatching some
• small articles of dress from a chair within
'ftth1* length :he window, he fled 'with pre
cipitation. We are told that the young hero
ine would have fired if she had known that
the pistol was certainly loaded; but she had
feared that it was empty, and that a snap
would betray her defeticelessness.
Honolulu, July 10.—The Fourth of
July, the anniversary of the Independence of
the United States of North America, coming
on Sunday, the succeeding day was celebrat
ed in its stead, and with almost as much noise
and quite a* much enjoyment, as it would
have been at home. Drums and trumpets,
flies and horns, fidJIes and triangles, noisy
boys, the popping off of muskets, ami such
other extempore sounc's as could be got up for
the occasion, all lent their aid long before ear
\y dawn, to arouse our worthy citizens to the
tact that *%lheday we célébra te'' had arrived.

Dates from the Cai>e u! Good Hope to the
16th of November were received here yes
terday. They are not commercially impor
tant; hut furnish satisfactory intelligence to
the friends of humanity by advising that the
British Government has recently, through us
naval force on the West Coast ol Alrica,
done much lo suppress the slave irode. The
British sloop o! war Fantuma had returned to
Cape Town, alter a cruise of sixteen months, !
and reported that she had captured 33 slavers, !
and had liberated three thousand four hun* !
dred and twenty-seven staves who tcere in· j
carcerated on board of them. In no instance j
had any of the slavers been found under the
American flag.—Letter from New York.
Now, there was a little fact which had j
come to his knowledge, and which he wanted
to state on this matter. He was told that the
leading man among the signers of that trea
sonable petition was himself a modern Loco- :
foco, a Van Buren man, who ran on the Lo- I
cofoco ticket as a candidate for the Senate ;
of Massachusetts. The man was a disunion
isi, and that very fact probably had consti
tuted One of the reasons why the Whigs re
fused to receive him. This fact showed the
viilany of the farce which it was here at
tempted to play. Who Were the men that
were thirsting for the blood of the gentleman
from Massachusetts, and crying out ••Crucify,
crucify?* They were the political associates
of the very man who ha 3 headed this pétition.

G. W. Kendall.—We regret to discover
that many of our exchange papers, in copying
or alluding to the details of the capture of the
^anta Fee expedition, state that it is altogether
probable that Mr. Kendall has perished, and
that no hope of his return can be entertained.
Such is not the fact. In all the circumstances
of the case as we understand them, there is
ample encouragement. We entertain a reli
gious belief that Kendall will be in this city.

Virginia and thr Navy.—If any State has
especial cause to be proud of our Navy κ would
seem to be Virginia. The President of the
United States, who is, ex-oificio, Comma n
der-in-Chief of the Army and N»vy, is a Vir
ginian; the Secretary of the Navv, ici a Vir
ginian; the President ol the Navy Board is a
Virginian; the First Clerk of ;he Navy De
partment is a Virginian; the Commodore of
the West India squadron is a Virginian ; and
the Commander of the frigate Columbia, one
of ihe Home squadron, (socalled, we believe,
from its staying at home) is a Virginian. A
noble !is· this, truly. Glory enough lor one

A novel Case of Difficulty.—We are in
formed of a novel case which has recently
transpired in Washington co. in this Stale.—
Some years a^o a man and woman were mar
ried, and continued to reside together as man
and wife. Recently they discovered thai the
person before whom the ceremony was
performed was not authorized by law to
tie the marriage knot, and that their mar
riage was a nullity. When this discovery
was made, the woman insisted upon having
theceremony gone over again before a legal
ly constituted otficer, but the husband refu
sed; subsequently, the husband having reflect
ed that the principal part of the proper! y which
he held had been derived from his wife chang
ed his resolution and became desirous to have
the knot legally lied; but at this period the
woman had altered her purposes, and there
lore refused. Following up her resolution to
remain free, she evicted the husband from his
possession of the property, and our informant
says that the last he heard oi the case, wasthe
application of the husband to a justice of the
peace for some process to restore him to what
he had once supposed to be his own. Can
any of the St, Louis lawyers find out a suit
able process lor the exigencies of the disap
pointed husband.—St. Louis Repuh.
