ALEXANDRIA, D. C.
_ THURSDAY MORNING, March 9. The remarkable light seen in the south-west, for the last two or three nights, has attracted a great deal of attention. Hundreds and hundreds look out to gaze upon the phenomenon. We have received from the publishers, the Harpers, of New-York, Forest Days, by James, and Adam Brown, by Smith—both new and pop ular novels—on the cheap plan. We have also received from the publisher in New-York, the February number of the republication of the London Christian Observer. These works are for sale by Messrs Bell & Entwisle. It seems to be understood in \Y ashington, that Judge Porter, of Pennsylvania, will take his seat in the Cabinet, as Secretary of \Y ar, on tomor row. __ The Williamsport (Md.) Banner, in noticing the statement made in the Georgetown Ad\o cate a few days since that water had been let into the Chesapeake and Ohio Canal, along the line from Hancock to Georgetown, says that it is incorrect so far as it relates to the navigation of the Canal at and above Williamsport. I he water has not been admitted owing to cold and unfavorable weather having retarded the necessary repairs, which will be completed in a few days. The Richmond Enquirer thus announces the “fixed fact “We arc authorised by Henry A. Wise, Esq., to announce, that he is again a can didate for Congress, lie means to‘appeal to tne People unhesitatingly.’ ” The Philadelphia Pennsylvanian says the Loco Foco members of Congress from Pennsylvania, recommended George M. Keim, oi Berks county, for the collectorship of Philadelphia. The appoint ment of Mr. Bis the does not go down as smooth ly as might be be expected—the Pennsylvanian contenting itself with saying: “Should Mr. Blythe pursue as satisfactory a course as when holding the office under a former administration, the public will have cause to rejoice in the change which has restored him to the collectorship.” The expression of the Legislature of Michigan is fery strong and decided against any repudia tion. They corridor the State pledged for the payment of the principal and interest on all Bonds in the hands of innocent holders, and any, and all others for which the State has received consider ation, and for which they can, under any legiti mate view, be held as in any way equally bound. Pennsvlv w'ia.—Both Houses ot the Pennsyl vania Legislature have passed a resolution to pro vide for the payment of the interest of the State debt falling due last month and in the month of August next. The resolution directs the Govern or to issue certificate* bearing six per cent, inter est, payable yearly, to all persons to whom inter est is due in a sum larger than twenty dollars. Sums under twenty dollars are to be paid in mo. ney. ___ U. S. Senator from Maine.—The Portland Advertiser states that Gov. Fairfield has been nominated by a caucus of Loco Foco members of .A • • • . v ^ t « ?*1 aV - ine legislature. Jjrornam rants, r*sq. wa» uio other Loco Foco candidate thought of. Retrenchment.—In a recent speech in the House of Representatives, Hon. 1). D Barnard stated the fact, that exclusive of the public debt, the appropriations for this yeary irouUl not exceed eigh teen, and might not be more than seventeenand a half millions of dollars; while during Mr. Van Buren's Mministration they averaged thirty-seven MILLIONS OF DOLLARS FF.R ANNUM. They WCI*e now, less than one half what they were under Mr. Buren. This it w ill be seen that the Whigs have more than fulfilled all the promises of retrench ment they made, despite the hostility they have been forced to encounter. As a fact illustrative of the abundance of iimv ncy in New York, the Express states that one bank in Wall street, has one million six hundred thousand dollars in specie on hand, and is a creditor bank to the amount of four hundred thousand dollars. The same Bank has a circula tion of only a little over three hundred thousand dollars. This bank could extend its line of dis count, if it could fin<f the securities, to two mil lions of dollars. Impeachment Cask.—We leatn from the Louis Republican, that the trial of the Hon. J. 1). Leland, one of the Judges of the State of Missou ri, has at length closed. Four charges were brought against him, and the Senate and House only agreed upon the second specification of the first charge, viz: ‘‘He is deficient in legal knowledge.” The resolution to address the Governor for his remov al, upon the specification concurred in, passed both Houses by a two thirds vote. If they fail in this, all that has been done goes for nothing, un- I less it shall have the effect of causing the Judge to resign. We perceive that (Jen. George V. Morris, of New-York, will commence in the course of a few weeks, the publication of a new series of the New York Mirror, in octavo form, and upon an entire ly novel and original plan, with a steel engraving m every number, and at the reduced price of three dollars a year, thus furnishing the subscriber with fifty-two engravings a year, besides two splendid volumes of literary matter, contributed by many of the ablest writers of the day. That distinguish ed paiuter, Mr. J. G. Chapman, is engaged ex pressly for these illustrations. The Report of the transactions of the Apollo Association of New York fur the year 15-12— established for the encouragement of the Art of 1 ainting—has been published. We learn from the New \ork American that the receipts of the h_‘a:_r . < Awiiaiiuuwr me past year were very nearly ! six thousand dollars, which sum was expended in the publication of a beautitui line engraving, and in the purchase ot thirty-five works of art, which were distributed at the annual meeting of Decem ber among the subscribers. The engraving for the subscribers for the year 1843, promises to be one of the most popular works ever got up in this country. It is entitled “The Farmers Nooning.'1! - The Case of the Somers.—We learn from New York that the Grand Jury of the United States District Court, now in session in that city, \ have refused to find a bill against Commander • kanzie. It is further stated that the examination of witnesses in this ease before the Naval Court inertial is fast drawing to a close, and that the! trial may be expected to terminate in a few days, j National Intelligencer* ' [FOR THE ALEXANDRIA GAZETTE* 1 l The lovers of Astronomy have been greeted by an unexpected visiter. For the last two even- i ings an appearance in the West has been noticed, which bears undoubted evidence of being of a Cometary character. At about seven in the' evening of the 6th instant, it was first observed, and was conceived to be of Electric origin. The j heavens were therefore narrowly watched during | the remainder of the evening and part of the ; night, but no confirmation of this hypothesis j | appearing, there were grounds for the belief j i that it was not of the nature supposed. Its ; ! reappearance, therefore, last evening was watch- j ed for with interest, and accordingly, at about the same hour,it became visible. It presented the : appearance of a body of light extending in a di- j rection parallel to the celestial equator, the wes- j tern extremity being in the horizon; the entire ; length of the luminous appearance was nearly 30 t ! degrees: the right ascension of its centre at 40 minutes past seven was 39 degrees, and its decli nation 15 degrees south. Comets have frequently been observed, consist i ing entirely of vapour, but from observations that have recently been made in the Northern ’ States, it is probable that this is only the tuilf ■ while the nucleus or bodv of the Comet is so near 1 ’ the Sun as to be at present invisible. Should this j be the case, it will in all probability, be again seen after passing its perihelion, j The appearance of a Comet at any time, but particularly when unlooked for, is calculated to ; j give rise to feelings in the minds of all observers 1 which can scarcely he portrayed in language ; a kind of awe commingled with the natural gratifi- 1 cation, consequent upon the contemplation of so j magnificent a spectacle. i The nature of Comets is very imperfectly un 1 derstood, and there are but few upon which sufli- j | cient observations have been made to enable As-j ▲ ___ -4..

I C. S. H. 1 Alexandria Bxirdiug School, 3d mo. 8th, 1813.! [com u unicated. 1 I At a meeting of the Whigs of the upper end of j I Fauquier County, Va., held in the town of Salem, j on the 4th of March, inst., for the purpose of no- j minuting their candidate to the next Legislature, | | Dr. R. E. Peyton, was called to the chair, and j Andrew Chuxn was appointed Secretary. On motion of Dr. Newman, it was Resolved, That this meeting do nominate JOHN I MARSHALL, Esq , of Oak Hill, to be the can j didate of the upper end of the County, in the en suing election. A count being demanded, the vote stood: Ayes 66, Noes 3. On motion of Henry Dixon, it was unanimously Resolved, That it is the earnest request of this meeting that Samuel Chilton, Esq., shall be the nominee of the Whig meeting to to held at War renton; and that the members of this meeting Will most heartily co-operate with the Whigs below, in support of his election. Some objection was made to this resolution, as evincing a spirit of dictation to our brethren be low; but such spirit, or intention, being entirely denied, the objections were withdrawn. On motion of Dr. Newinan, Resolved, That this meeting recommend James W. Foster, Esq., as a lit candidate of the Whigs of this District for the Senate of the State. On motion of Dr. Hitt, it was Resolved, That the proceedings of this meeting ! be published in the Alexandria Gazeette. Resolved, That this meeting do now adjourn. ROBERT E.

I Mr. Upshur is to be transferred from the Navy to the State Department. Mr. Cushing is to be appointed Secretary at ' War. Judge J. M. Porter of Pennsylvania is to have the Navy Department.

Church Property.—On Monday, the 20th ul timo, Judge M wi riN delivere 1 the opinion of the Supreme Court of Louisiana, in the cu>e of Martin rs. The Wardens of tiie Church of Saint Francis, pi Pointe Coupee. The plaintiff was the curate of the parish, hav ing been appointed by the bishop of the diocese. The wardens became dissatisfied with their pas tor. and gave him notice to quit, and that they would not pay him after a certain time. He re fused to leave, and the bishop declined with drawing him until his demands were paid. The court decided that the wardens were, under the charter, the legal owners of the church property, and its temporal administrators, free from any control from the clergy. That the wardens were j responsible to the congregation only, and neither I the pope nor his bishops have any legal authority : in Louisiana, ckher to manage the property dedi- j cated to ecclesiastical purposes, or to impose i priests upon the congregation contrary to their j consent. The power of the clergy is spiritual j alone, and can only operate upon the moral sense j and consciences of the people. The law considers them as citizens only, atfording them its protection ] as such, and the canon law is not to be consider- j ed in the enforcement of contracts.—Bee. — I Naval.—The LT.
