ALEXANDRIA, D. C. i
-
WEDNESDAY MORNING, MAY 24.
< · —
Mr. Webstkkn—The resignation of Mr. Web
iter as Secretary of State, and his return, for the j
present, to private life, has been the signal for .
several demonstrations on the part cf his friends, !
which we feel bound to notice.
Mr. Webster's commanding and unquestioned
talents, his situation, the influence he has acquir
ed inconsequence of his ability, and his previous
services, all combine to make his political atti
tude of great importance.
It will be seen, from an article copied in ano
ther part of to-day's paper, that some of his
friends have forthwith nominated him as a candi
date for the Presidentship. One surmise is,
and not an improbable one ! that he will ultimate
ly take ground in favor of Mr. Calhoun ! Another
is, that he will continue so to act as to advance
Mr. Tyler's prospects. And, another is, that he
will boldly throw himself again into the arn:s of
the VYhigs, and ultimately stand by their candi
date and their principles.
All these suppositions, and others that might be
mentioned, have been talked about and discussed.
But, it is lomewhat remarkable, that, however
men may differ as to theni, all s^em to ajree that
it is Mr. Webster's present intention to operate a
gainst a nomination of „Vr. Chy now, and espe
cially that his interference, to accomplish 3uch a
result, will be mad· manifest in Massachusetts,
at an early day, and through the Whig State Con
vention that is shortiy to assemble in that Com
mon wealth.

oncc, anil throughout tho country If injustice
has been done to Mr. Webster, it is time that he
should be placed rcctus in curia.
The Whigs of Massachusetts, wc hone and
trust, will remember, that much of firmness, of
decision, and of energy, is expected from them,
and that they ou^ht to permit no man, however
great a favorite, to tamper with their political in
tegrity. 1 he friends of Henry Clay—the Whigs
of the Union—who have alone, hitherto, sustained
Mr. Webster against the most violent and vindic
tive assaults of his enemies—nevertheless, do not
court his alliance, or fear his open opposition.—
All they want is for him to act as they think he
ought to act, openly, fairly, and honorably We
shall recur to this subject again, as circumstances
may seem to require.
The Superior Court of Fairfax County, com
menced its May Term yesterday—Judge Field
presiding, during the temporary absence of Judge
Scott.
We are iudebted to the New Orleans Tropic
for an extra containing the official account of the
late fight between ihe Texan and Mexican squad
rons ofT Campeachy. The Texan fleet were at
Campcachy, and it was stated that Commodore
Moore would probably attack the Mexican licet
on the night when the Octavia le!1!.
Various commercial and statistical articles of
interest will be found under the Commercial head,
in to-day's paper.
The Convention of the Protestant Episcopal
Church of Virginia, which recently assembled at
Richmond, adjourned on Saturday last. There
was a very large attendance both of clerical and
Uy-delegates, and of visitors. The next meeting
of the Convention will bo held at Lynchburg.

A brilliant ball was given on board the United
States ship Pennsylvania, at Norfolk, on Wed
nesday evening la^t, by Captain and Mrs. Zant
zioger.
JOHN Κ. rtTF.KS, jr. nus oeun appomieu uj uic
American Institute to proceed to China with mod
els of American ingenuity. He is to go under the
auspices of the American Embassy to the Celes
tial Empire.
The citizens of Washington gave the officers
of the U. S. steamer Missouri a splendid com
plimentary ball last evening, 4as a manifestation
of the sense entertained of the polite attention
paid them by the officers of the Missouri."
The "White Sulphur Springs in Frederick, Ya.,
arc now accessible by railroad, being only one
mile distant from Stephenson's Depot, on the

Goods that were brought by the Caledonia,were
celling in Boston at retail at 2\ o'clock on Satur
day afternoon. These same goods ^ere in Glas
gow, Scotland, on the 2d inst Î The Caledonia
arrived at East Boston at about G o'clock in the
morning.
The Caledonia brought out a large amount cf
speeic, $959,561 of which ha\e been entered at the
Boston Custom House.
We learn from the Boston .Mercantile Journal
that a number of the friends of Mr. Webster in
that city, are to hold a meeting on Friday eve
ning, "for the purpose of adopting measures to
extend to him a welcome on his return, and to
express their appreciation of his charact ?r and
services."
The Boston papers contain a list ot the t- es
pies elected to represent that city in the gran
Whig Convention at Worcester. It consi>ts <>
one hundred and sixty names, embracing some
the old Bay Stated best and most distinguish^
meu. Nathan Appleton, James T· Austin, Thos.
C. Amor?, Jonathan Chapman, Rufus Choatc,
Abbott Lawrence, and indeed ever) name in t îe
catalogue affords sufficient guaranty of the *n*e ι
ligence, virtue, and patriotism which Boston wi ^
carry into the Convention, and of the spirit whic ι
will characterize its proceedings.
An American fishing schr., the Washington, j
was seized on the 10th instant, oif Annapolis, N.
S., for an alleged violation of the treaty in re
gard to the right of fishing vessels.
Business atCincissati.— The li ^et ot t.ie
17th instant says:—"The protracted Spii^g wea .
ther, with the frequent recurrence of hca\ > rains, (
has kept up the River, and ailords a prospect of ;
continued navigation throughout the season. The ,
steamboat business has been unusually brisk, and ,
the shipments of producc largo. An active busi
ness is also doing in.the way of sales ol goods to
country merchants, who purchu.se for cash or
short cred it." _
Mission· to China.—The Washington certes- j
jondeut of the Philadelphia Mercury says : k*Mr.
Cushing, whatever may be said by some ol the
papers, w\\l take the overland route to Singapore,
which will enable hira to pass several months in
Europe, before the arrival of the squadron, so as >
to become thoroughly acquainted with the dispo-},
•ition of Franee and the other powers of the Con- ·
tinent with regard to the Celestial Empire.—
France has already despatched a Commisioner to
Canton, or is on the point of sending one, and it is
pr<, per that Mr. Cushing should know what de- ι
mands will be made upon the Emperor, in order
to obtain at least as much, if not more, than is
granted to other nations."
Tus Mackenzie Case.—This is a case, says
the Philadelphia Chronicle, in which a commis
sion was issued from the Supreme Court of New
Vork, to take the testimony of Captain Gwynn,
and Commodore Read, of this city, who eat on
the late Court Martial on Commander Macken
zie, in relation to the vote of the Court Martial.
These gentlemen refused to testify, upon which ;
the matter was brought before the Court of Com
mon Pleas, and a full argument heard on it.
On Saturday morn ing, Judge King delivered
his opinion upon the matter, and stated, that
the answers ought to be made, but that the case
should lay over for one week, for the purpose of
giving the parties interested, time to have the Com
mission vacated, if, as it is alleged, the commission
j is irregular or illegal. If not vacated, 111© an
swers to the letters interrogatory must be given.
The (J. S. schooner Grampus left Hampton
Roads for a southern cruise about two months
since, and lias bsen heard of but once.
i Tho New Vork Journal of Commerce sayi
that the story of the sinking of the Grand Cay
man Island by an earthquake is without founda

The Maison Rouge Property, La.—A new
1 ·
and most dangerous competitor for this immense
estate has recently been urging her claims in the
courts of Louisiana. This is the estate unsuc
cessfully claimed by Major General Gaines. The
present claimant is Margaret Maison Rouue, as
daughter and heiress to the late Marquis, and as
yet the preliminary portion of the case has only
been reached by the Court. The Ouachita Cou
rier says : "The question determined by the
Court at this time does not go the length of es
tablishing the right of the plaintiff to the proper
ty of the late Marquis, but clearly establishes
her ri^ht to be considered as the legitimate daugh
ter and heiress at law cf the deceased, leaving j
for future investigation all the various questions
of title to particular estates, whether by purchase,
inheritance, or prescription."

POSTSCRIPT.
Messrs. BoTTdfew Jones.—This contest is in
regular course, am the results of scrutiny are e
ren more favorable to Mr. Botts than he had an
ticipated. Mr. Botts yesterday served Mr. Jones
with notice of contest, and & list of270 odd names
objected to.—Rich. Whig.
The Episcopax Convention.—The Convention
terminated its labors on Sunday night. The
great multitude of strangers is dispersed, and our
streets have already resumed their still life and
their listless tranquility. Tgbe five days of the
Convention pi«senied a mosïanimated spectacle.
The exercises of the Church commenced every
morning at 6 o'clock, and continued in most of
the Churches in the forenoon, evening and night
—bringing out several of the strongest men and
best preachers of the Episcopal Convention. On
Sunday morning, at 6. A. M., the solemn rite of
Confirmation waa admjnistered by Bishop Meade
to about 25 persons, and notwithstanding the
early hour, the Church was crowded in every
quarter with an at attentive audience. The con
couse in the same Church in the midday service
was very imposing. Mr. Slaughter commenced
an eloquent address, but before he had completed
one-third, he was forced by a severe attack of in
disposition to desist. It was, however, conclud- i
ed at St. Jarae's the same afternoon. The num- !
ber of communicants (several hundreds) was so i
great, as to require more than two hours to ad
minister the sacrement.
In the course of the Sabbath, the four Episco
pal Churches were opened, and sermons were de
livered in the forenoon and night. It is delight-. !
(ul to see the courtesy and liberality which ani
mated the Presbyterians, Baptists and Methodists,
in throwing open their churches to the Episcopa- j
lians, who freely availed themselves of their of- |
ftrs, to fill their pulpits. In some cases the ofli- i
ciating ministers would wait on their Episcopal
substitutes, to conduct them to their churches and
introduce them into their pulpits. This is a spec- !
tacle of christian feeling, which reflects great
honor upon the religious institutions of our coun- j
try.
The final scene approached, nnd the Monu- '
mental Church is crowded, for the last time, on
Sunday nignt, by a aenseanu anxious muuuuue. n
was the most crowded congregation we have ever j
seen in the Church. Some have estimated the 1
number at near 2,000. So many voices joined in
the music, that the noise of the organ was drown
ed in the melody. The evening service was well
read by the Rev. Mr. Beall of Norfolk, and the
valedictory discourse was pionounced by Bishop
Johns, without a MS. or note before him. It was
an extraordinary effort, and it had all the clear
ness, tiuency, elegance,and condensation of a writ
ten composition, with all the force and eloquence
of a spoken speech. The text was those remarka- j
ble and appropriate words, from the latter clause
of the 4th verse, and 17th chapter of St. John's :
"I have finished the work which thou gavest me
to do." He sustained his distinguished reputation
as a pulpit orator, and all went away filled with
admiration for his talents, and love for h's vir- ,
tucs. He left the final appeal to be made by
Bishop Meade, who delivered himself with great
feeling, and calling the Ministers around him,
gave them his last charge, and bid them an af
fectionate farewell. Yesterday morning the
different lines of communications carried off a
large proportion ol" strangers, and this morning
our streets are trodden by but few pilgrims to
the Convention.—Richmond Enquirer.
A public meeting of the Democratic party will
be held at June Court next, in the Courthouse at
Warrenton, to take into consideration the propri
ety of holding a National Convention to nominate
candidates for the Presidency and Vice Presiden
cy ; and of proposing the time when the Convention
shall assemble, and the best mode of selecting Dele
gates to the Convention. Other matters connec
ted with tUh important subjcct will be brought
before the meeting, and full a attendance of mem
hen of the party is earnestly requested.— Warren

SEVENTY FIVE J> jLLARS RUW4RD.—
Ran oil' fro m the subscriber, on Sunday the
10th of April, negro WELLINGTON. He is
very likely, about six and twenty yean of age,
and of the darkest shade of mulatoci. His cars
η re bored, and they atlurd the only distinguishing
mark about his person. He is about five feet
nine inches in height, hi? figure is remarkably
fine, as also his address. lie is an accomplished
house-servant, and wears a very full suit of hair.
It i> the third time he has run ο if, and from the
eircumstancc of his having free relations living iti
Washington, I am inclined to think he has taUerç
that route. He was caught last summer iu the
neighborhood of Baltimore. Also, absconded on
Thursday last, MARIA, a s^ter of said Welling
ton, a very lively girl, about IG years of age, with
a fuii huit of hair, and also very likely. She was
seen on the following day on her road to the
District. Her dress was of blue striped cotton,
and his was of gray easinet. The above reward
will be pai l for the two, if secured so that I get
them, and all reasonable expenses paid.
