ALEXANDRIA, D. C.
SATURDAY MORNING, JUNE 24. REPEAL MEETINGS^—Mr. Robert Tyler made a flaming speech at the Irish Repeal Meet ing in Boston last Monday, which was much ap plauded. Speeches were also made by Z. Collins Lee, district attorney of Maryland, Win. Wal lace oCNew York, and Isaac H. Wright, of Rox bury. A large sum of money was collected for the cause of repeal; and the President, J. W. James, announced that the special sum of ^73 had been contributed by the U. S. troops stationed at the Charlestown Navy Yard. In the mean time, the recent speech of Mr. O’Connell at the Re peal Meeting in Dublin, in which he denounces slavery and the slave holders in the United States, and foreshadows an effort, as soon as possible, to agitate in our country, for the liberation of our j slaves, is travelling through the land like wild » fire, and, in the South, especially, is calling forth a general expression of indignation. The sub-j stance of this speech of O'Connell’s we have a!- j ready given. The Torch-light Procession of the Boston Fire . . I Department, was a brilliant affair, and the tout ensemble from those points where a view of the whole length of the procession could be obtained, ! was a sight worth looking at. About six hun dred of the Boston department, and large delega tions from the departments of Charlestow n, Cam bridge, and Roxbui y, assembled to do honor to ; their guests from Albany ; and ofter passing! through the principal streets, from almost the ; extreme of one end of the city to the other, re- ! — i paired to the Cradle of Liberty, where a bounte ous collation, on true temperance principles, had been provided for them. RETURN of the PRESIDENT «» SUITE, j —Yestcrdav, the President with the different' members of the Cabinet, who had accompanied him on his recent visit to Boston, returned to j Washington. They arrived in Washington, yes terday. in the morning train of ears from Balti more. The sudden and melancholy death of Mr. j Legake, put a stop to al! previous arrangements that had been made, ami it was determined im mediately to return to the scat of Government.— The President ami the Members of the Cabinet j are in good health, and wii! immediate!v resume the discharge of their official duties. The articles which we copy to-day from the : Globe, Madisonian, and Pennsylvanian, wii! at- ' tract attention The indignant rejection of Mr. | Tyler and all who take or hold olfiec under him,: by the Globe, will, we presume, b * echoed and adopted by the Democratic party throughout the country. But the fiat of the Globe seems to us to be hard indeed. Mr. Wickmkfk, the Postmaster General, re-j mains a clay or two in Philadelphia, cn public j busiuess. Mr. John Greiand, formerly a clerk in the i . ! S. Bank, AVas almost ti.stanlaneor.sly kil.e l in Philadelphia on Wednesday by being thrown from his horse. He was highly esteemed. THE PRESIDENT AND TUB AB >LITIO\ ISTS.—The Boston Atlas says, that the petition ; to President Tyler, adopt* dat the meeting of Ah-; olitionists in that city, during the annive rsary week, was forwarded to him in a letter by Wen dell Phillips, Esq. chairman of the committee — The letter in which it is enclosed, requests an in-1 terview for the purpose of conferring with the President upon the object ot the memorial. The ; committee received no answer to their communi-1 cation. It was drawn up by a colored man, the clerk of Ettfo < iiey Lortng, Es |. uBoz” in his‘'Martin Chuzzlewit” h^s brought, his characters to this country. A TRULY GREAT MAX—The BostonTiin« says, one of the supernumerary police officers j went home after the celebration of the 17th, mu! solemnly nailing up his baton over the fire-place, placed it beneath the followin';inscription:—u Re spect this, my children, for it tells you that your father was, for one day, the guardian of his coun- ; try’s peace.” It appeal's by a despatch from Governor Rob- j erts that the government ot’ Liberia is making some ' experiments in currency. Bills of credit have been emitted on the credit of the Colonization Society. They circulate freely—says the despatch; and are received readily in exchange for foreign mer chandize. To keep these bills at par, adds Gov- i ernor Roberts, we have to be very particular to restrict our circulation to only a small amount above our ability to redeem them REVOLUTIONARY PATRIOTS*—The most interesting portion of the exercises, at the late j Bunker Hill celebration, says the Boston Courier, j was the descent of the one bundled and seven ! Revolutionary Soldiers from their carriages, and their ascent to the seats prepared for them near the Orator. Four of these gentlemen were com- ; batants at Lexington and Concord ; one also at j Banker Hill; and eleven likewise belonged to the j troops who so gallantly held the sl'ght and tem porary redoubt against the regular forces of Bri tain. The others took part in some one or more engagements during the Revolution Capt. Jo- j siah Cicaveiand, was not only at Bunker Hill, but j the battles at Hacrlem Heights, White Plains, j Trenton, Princeton, Monmouth, and Yorktown, at ] the capture of Cornwallis. He performed a ; journey of over four hundred miles to attend this celebration Cast iron is getting into use for even thing.— In England they build cast iron houses, cast iron churches, and for aught we know, employ c:»st iron clergymen with consciences of the same ma terial to preach in them; arid now we see by a Cle veiand, Ohio paper, that tlie Americans are j improving upon the European fabric; for the ma nufacturers of that region are turning out cast iron tombstones, which are described as combining j all the beautv and high finish of marble..—Aetc t'>nru r. . AMVSEMENT\EKsrs DRINKING.—A sing- ’ |nS and dancing people is certainly higher in the scale ot morality than a sotting people. The na tional ballad and the national dance open the way to every department of poetry and of music ; when people have reached this point, it is easy to U'\ gv1 ihe feeling for every kind and degree of af * * ^ hundreds who resort to a museum cannot, 'v sa*nc time be sitting at an ale-house or a j ^n-snop. Nor |s t.Lis* all; they will soon come j ee‘ the boundless disparity that exists between • !l Wnoai art raises into demigods, and animals j shape degraded by drunkenness below level of brutes. It is an error to suppose that irisUamtj forbids the education of man by the *"e influences, the conceptions of art; it tin - r 0Il*y th°se perversions and misapplies-j ns ai*t, which tho noble and the uncorrupted Greek'etpndly rejected.—R<wmn'\ ! rCr* The Committees appointed on behalf of the Citizens and the Volunteer Companies, to ar range for the celebration of the 4th of July, are requested to meet at Mr. Wish’s Hotel, this (Saturday) evening, at 8 o'clock. je 24—It SANDS' SARSAPARILLA.—JJnoastrille, Conn., March 3, 1843.—Messrs. A. B. Sands & Co.—Gentlemen: Permit me to add another to the many testimonials in favor of your Sarsapa rilla. I was about seven years ago sick for many months with a bilious fever, during which 1 took a great deal of powerful medicine. This left me a lameness and pain in my joints, which was very distressing. I was at the same time troubled with a swelling of my ankles, attended with so much inflammation as to render it impossible to bear the least clothing upon them. They would fre quently ulcerate, and discharge for a long time, when they would heal and be immediately fol lowed by a violent fever. I have also been trou bled fur a long time with a pain in my side,which is now entirely cured, and my other distresses re-! lieved.

For further information apply to the Captain on board the boat at Bradley's wharf. N. B.

THE CONTESTED ELECTION IN THIS DISTRICT.—We noticed, yesterday, the com mencement of the deposition-taking in relation to this controversy. We recur to the matter again to correct what we understand is a prevailing rumor in the District, and which appears to have been circulated with groat industry; and that is, that Mr. Jones was anxious to refer the contro versy to the arbitrament of the People, and that Mr. Botts would not consent. The reverse of this is the truth. Mr. Botts, to save himself trouble, and both the public and himself great cost, has been and is anxious to submit the question again to the people, and he has challenged Mr. Jones to join him in the is sue. Mr. Jones professes to be willing to do so himself; but his friends will not consent that he shall pursue that course.—Rich. Whig. We learn that on lower James River and in Goochland county, the prospects of the wheat crop were never liner. Should the weather con tinue in its present condition for fifteen days, the fondest hopes of Old Virginia will be realized.— Richmond Enquirer. LARD OIL.—We understand that Powers &. Co., of this city have manufactured 8000 gallons of this oil since January, and they have shipped 4000 gallons to the East within the last thirty days.—Louisviile Jouenal. LATE FROM MATANZAS —The schooner Caroline, Capt. Swazey, arrived yesterday in four days from Matanzas. We have been favored by a commercial house with the subjoined extract of a letter, and in,addition, we learn from Capt. S. that the news reached Matanzas the day he sailed, that an insurrection had broken out in the Island of Jamaica, but he did not learn the extent or any particulars in relation to it. An English brig was totally lost on tire east end of the Island of Cuba, w hile going in to load. Capt. S. did not recollect her name.—Savannah Georgian. We learn that our Odd Fellow friends will hold a Celebration on the 11th of July, next month, with appropriate ceremonies, in honor of the founding of tire Grand Lodge of Virginia. There will be a Procession, an Oration and a Collation, and a very happy time of it all around. The In stitution is increasing in strength and influence We shall get together some facts i:i a few days to show the practical effects of the Order—for al though no member, wc can admire its charitable spirit, and the zeal of ns members.

Tro I * EMIGRATION TO VIRGINIA.-In a speech delivered last year, by Senator Rives, before the Agricultural Society of Albemarle, it was sta ted that a considerable number of farmers from Duchess county, New York, had purchased and settled on lands in Fairfax county in this State.— . The New York Express says that these end-! granU have dune so w».li that many more intend following their example. We Jearn from the Norfolk Herald that same of these fanners have been making ( bscrvatlong and enquiries in that sicti-m of the State with a view to emigration and settlement; and it adds: “Many large tracts of land might be cited, which, from want of energy, or of a practical knowledge of Agriculture on I the part of the proprietors, or flora other causes, ! have been sullered to deteriorate in value until they might ha purchased almost dirt cheap.— j 1 hose require only a little time and attention to : bring them back to a high state of improvement;1 and under the management of industrious, hard-! working farmers, would very soon present an as pen t far different from tiiat which they exhibit.r ! We learn that there is also a steady tide of end* ; gration to tiic Northwestern counties of Virginia, which are rnni.llv fillin'.** nn with an indnslrinns «• %> U a -I and energetic population from other States. We rejoice to see tho Old Dominion, which has pco- ; pled so many other Commonwealths with her j best sons, thus attracting from other States valu-. able citizens to fill up Iter ‘waste places,1 and to j convert her wilderness into a garden.—Lynch-, Lu'-'g Virginian. Til id LOt.b’S i\>.— \t this time last year we compiled a very learned disquisition upon Lo custs, having heard their noise, like “the voice of ! rnanv waters,11 through the woods south and : east; hut we did not observe the circumstance j that there were none of those extraordinary in- ! sects north of (Jrecnshoro1. Such was the fact; and now, while there are none south and east, myriads have appeared north and west. So far as wc have information, they have uniformly | “come it V' immediately on the northwest side of the line which bounded them last year. An in telligent acquaintance says lh.it he has observed j their habits, and that they heretofore periodically appeared on the southeast side of a line running I through this county parallel with the sea coast 1 —and the following year on the northwest of ( the same line. So far as the present appear-. a nee of the Locusts is concerned, v.e can con firm his observation. This boundary appears | to pass, in the direction named by our friend through the southern part of the Town. Of a hot forenoon, when the insect host is in full cry as far down as the Institute,—pass on a hundred yard' along the Ashboro1 road, and the woods are silent as the morning cf creation.— Grcensborcugh f.V.
