ALEXANDRIA, D. C.
FRIDAY MORNING, JUNE 30. j Mh. Botts has replied in a long letter to the Documents recently furnished by the President in his own vindication, which were published in this pper immediately after their appearance in the Madisonian. We cannot afford the space for a continuation of this controversy, nor indeed, is it necessary, as it has lost already much of its in terest, and is looked upon now, more in the light mere quarrel between the parties, than an} thing else. Nevertheless, it may he proper to <t ite that Mr. Botts sustains himself ably—dis . aml criticises the certificates obtained by the President—shows, that Mr. Waddt Thomp son must have been mistaken in his impressions that Mr. Tyler was very yielding to the potent arguments of that distinguished character Mr. \hrv Green, &c., &c. In short, Mr. Botts proves that the President cannot extricate him self from the dilemma into which he has been thrown by his heartless desertion of the Whig cause and Whig party. \\e must confess, with all our admiration for Mr. Webster, that we think some of his very particular and devoted friends, carry the system ef (fais&nvg to a degree which must be extremely annoying to him, and certainly is disgusting to those who simply admit that Mr. Webster is a 'ivat i >rator and Statesman—a Great Man—and j are ready on that admission, to do honor to his talents and tus services. The Globe quotes General Jackson in favor of Mr. Van Buren as next President. We always thought that that card was the strongest in the pack, and would be used at the proper time, and with effect, too. Some say it bss been played once too often already. X'imporle. There’s nothing like trying. Having referred recently to the speeches made by Z. Collins Lee, Esq., be fore.the Irish Repeal Society of Baltimore, we have been requested by several of the friends of that gentleman, to re publish the ‘■ketch of his last address, especially that as a Southern man, the grounds he has taken, may be correctly set forth. Our readers will he delighted with the beauti ful tribute paid to the memory of the late Mr. Legare, bv Mr. Justice Story, which is published in another column of to-day s Gazette. The feeling of the Locofoco party in Ohio, in favor of Mr. Cass for the Presidency, and in op- j position to Mr. Van Buren, and Mr. Calhoun, is I assuming a most decided tone. Hints are given j that a State Convention, to express the view s of: the party in the State in favor of Mr. C tee, would instantly be followed by conventions of a similar character in Pennsylvania and Indiana. Should these manifestations of revolt he continued, it will take something more than the National Con vention to silence them. The Pennsylvanian publishes, by request, the address from the New England Anti-Slavery So ciety to President Tyler. “It appears, soys the Pennsylvanian, “that it was sent to Mr. Tyler during his visit to Boston, accompanied by a let ter from Wendell Phillips, chairman of the com mittee requesting an interview for the purpose of conferring with the President upon me auuj^v. j the memorial. No answer w as returned to this request; and, while publishing the memorial as part of the history of the times, and to gratify those who desire to see it in a Philadelphia paper, it may not be amiss to say that, in our opinion, the movement was injudicious—uncivil, in short,, under all the circumstances of the case. W e ne ver could approve of this system, of badgering public men, in time and out of time, with ques tions a«d memorials, and other small artillery, j not for the purpose of accomplishing the specified , object, but to produce certain effects, and we therefore think that Mr. Tyler was right hr the j course pursued.” _ THE NAVAL COURT MARTIAL.—We j learn from*the Norfolk Beacon, that the Na>al ( Court Martial held on board the U. S. ship Penn- \ »>lvania, heard the defence of Lciut Vail on Monday, and has despatched all the cases now , before it. _ _ The negro boy Stephen, w ho recently robbed the counting room of Messrs. Lambeth & I homp j son, in New Orleans, has been arrested and $2,- j 000 of the stolen money recovered. It is thought that others implicated in the affair will be secured. At Boston, on Saturday afternoon last, a fire broke out in the steam planeing machine factory of the Messrs. Washburn, on Causeway street, which, before it was subdued, destroyed eleven buildings. ___x STEAMBOAT BUILDING in the WEST — The Cincinnati Gazette, of the 23d inst. states that there arc now on the stocks, just above that city, seventeen steamboats—most ot them are first class beats. Seven have already been com pleted since January, and negotiations arc going on for the construction of several more. A DAY’S SPORT.—A fire broke out on bun day forenoon, in the third story of a narrow building in Courtlandt street, near Broad way, New York, occupied by Mr. Rosenberg, a youug German tailor, and his wife. Every thing contained in that story, including beds, bedsteads, bedding, clothing, trunks, &c. was destroyed.— Mr. Rosenberg and his wife had left the city early in the morning with some friends on an ex cursion to Staten Island, and of course did not dream of the calamity that had befallen them until their return about seven o’clock in the af ternoon, when they found themselves without ©ven a change of clothing, a dollar of money, ex cept what they had about them, or a bed to lie upon. On the 20th inst., Mr. George Bohrer, a farmer, living near Georgetown, Ky., was murdered by a band of lawless men, in open day, while at work io his field. Five guns were fired at him, and four balls were lodged in his body, notwithstand ing which he ran some distance, crying for help, but was overtaken by his murderers, one of whom beat in his skull with a hoe. The desire to ob tain money was the cause of the act. Three per sons have been arrested, and three more, who were suspected, have fled. There was to have been on the 18tb instant, at New Orleans, an exhibition of the effects of a submarine bomb, invented by a Frofessor Grant. An old steamboat was procured to be smashed to atoxns, and an immense crowd was gathered to see dote; but, unfortunately, the galvanic battery •o ignite the preparation in the bomb did Bot ef feet its object. The bomb Jdid not explode, the vessel was not smashed, and the crowd, after swelterwg in the sun several hours', were com pelled to return homward. We have six hundred subscriber* in the city of New York, and more or less patrons and rea ders in every civilized* nation on earth.— Jtfadi soniun. IMM ENSE RAFT.—The steamboat Patapsco, Captain Sanner, arrived at this city on Tuesday afternoon, from Havre de Grace, having in tow an immense float of Lumber, containing seventy rafts, which will measure four millions feet of lumber.—Baltimore American. A correspondent of the "Charleston Mercury thus speaks of Niblo's Garden in New York: “Have you or your readers ever been to Niblo’s Garden,—the summer paradise of New York ?■— If you have not, you have yet to see the best thing in the city. Let me describe it to you. In the first place, it covers an area of some three or four hundred feet square, on Broadway and Prince streets, near the highest ground in the city. The front building embraces an extensive hot-house, for plants; a bar room fer animals; a boarding-house, for men and women; and a thea tre for good creatures of all sovts. Behind this is a building expressly devoted! to music, ice creams, and coblers. The garden; is laid out in a labyrinth of beautiful walks and groves. Th«re is a fine fountain near the centre, and excellent summer houses at the extremities. Waiters are all ticketed and5 w ell-behaved, the drinks various and good, the prices moderate, and the w’omen visiters in the largest quantities,and w'el? looking. It is indeed a delicious place. «... . . /. , n \ » _ __1 _ _ _ 1 ne citizens oi riaruora, oi. unuc »»• rang .'merits for celebrating the Fourth of July, which do them honor, and which it would do hon or to the country to follow in all future celebra tions. A meeting wa3 held on Friday evening and a resolution adopted with great unanimity and good feeling, to observe the day, regardless of the distinctions of party; and we see among the Committee of Arrangements some of the best and most distinguished men of both political par ties. This is precisely as it should be. The De citation of Independence was not made by or for the benefit of the Federalists, the Democrats, the Whigs or the Locofocoes, but by Delegates in Congress for the People ot the Luited States, and we know of no right that any mere party or parties have to consider its commemoration as their celebration. Fight as they may against each other on every other day of the year, the fourth day of July belongs to them all, and on that day they ought to lay by all other considera tions, and to'enjoy it in common—as the heirs of its common glory.—JVrir York Courier. We copy the following from a critical notice in the National Intelligencer, of Mrs. Ellis’s new work, “The Wives of England:” “A great poem, (the most difficult and the most enduring of all human productions,) an heroic drama, a sublime statue, a masterpiece of paint ing, a noble history, a pure and graceful archi tectural pile, a comedy of the highest merit, a ravishing piece of harmony, an original scienti fic discovery, a striking invention in mechanics, an able and complete treatise on any subject of difficult investigation, or, even in the lower bran ches, (prose fiction or occasional literature,) a leading performance, no woman has ever yet produced, except in the single department of epistolary composition. Madame de Sevigne and Lady Mary Worth Montague are really the on ly great names in female authorship—the only names, that is to say, standing among the fore most in their class—that of the gay and graceful letter-writing h* all the rest, take the best works of the De Staels* the Genlises, the Hannah Mores, the He mauses, or even the Joanna JIaillies, (far the best of them all,) and weighing their absolute literary merit apart from the sex of the writers, you are compelled to say that all that has ever yet been contributed to knowledge or literature by woman, / A A 1 __ A ! .A ^ \ MM U r. A 4 At\ An IIIC CAwpuun jusi. mou'')««> *'**'•*' committed to the flames, and leave a loss as little to be deplored as that of the Welsh bards whom Edward I. had the good taste to exterminate or that of the romancers and poets of whom the cu rate purged Don Quixotic'3 library. Such is the serious and direct fact; and it is w Lth fact* alone, and not fancies,or hopes, or dreaensof what might be, that people who occupy themselves with brin ging about anything great or good in letters, mor als, or politics, have to do. We dwell thus upon this matter, because this is the real question to be settled—whether women shall, according to the rage now prevailing, be fuublc imitators of the masculine pursuits—au thors-, and artisans, and savans, destined never to advance any true excellence in the arts which they practise? Or whether they shall content themselves with blessing a husband, with being the guardian angel of a family, and with being the grace and the ornament of all that is purest and best and gladdest in domestic life? Is it worth while to cease to be the perfectly-modest woman, shrinking from even the public talk of things that become her, in order to dabble in va pid verse or pert prose, turn adept in child science, and add the shame of writing inanely to that of writing at all? In politics those who know history know that women have never taken any important part in public affairs,except in the midst of the extremest licentiousness and effeminacy. And as>to litera ture, it is equally obvious that it must be far on the decline to an era of mere scribbling, wheu the mania of writing rages among both sexes alike, and when the modes of composition most in favor arc such that at last, (everything being feeble, effetet affected, and imitated,) God sends a flood of female literature to puuish the abominations and the follies of the male. We know full well that wc are preaching truth disagreeable enough to merit a stoning from the shc-scribes and their admirers. Lapidation is, perhaps, quite good enough, too, for the folly of wasting truth when there ie so little of it afloai to spare. We have, however, one hope—not in the strong things we have already said, but in the fi nal argument, which will move at least a part of the sex: (the young and the widows,) if anything can. It is this: 4 II _ft r, f»•<"» m f Vl fft /HI rraov/llaUiv/ iin.li jhi «* v... — - idea of a blue-stocking wife, as from a predesti nate scratched face. With the idea of one, be sides the minor domestic discomforts of detesta ble dinners and a slatternly household, come the inseparable associations oi a grim and not scru pulously neat person, disarrayed dress, affected manners, and (especially it she be a writer of sentimental love-tales,) a termagant temper. No man, then, would, for a wife, think of a woman who had committed, before marriage, a lapse of this sort, anv more than any other. If it could possibly be otherwise, the lady herself would be bound to despise and reject lum for making so ill a choice. - As, then, marriage presupposes that the lady has not published a book, so it must be held to be a strictly implied contract that she never will. So that, in publishing before mamige she vio lates all her duties towards herself; and in pub lishing after it, she dissolves the nuptial con tract. A woman should have d* Apollo but her husband; and her children should be Muses enough for her, even though she should not have quite nine. JUDICIARY OF CUBA.—A correspondent of the New Orleans Picayune, gives the following account of the bench, the bar, and the business in the Courts of Cuba. The judiciary of Havana and of the Island in generaf, cannot be considered, nor is it regarded, as an independent department of the government. It is a mere adjunct of the administration; and in questions of law, whether civil or criminal, as in almost every thing else, the will of the Captain General is all but absolute, and this power he de putes te the Lieutenant Governors under him, who rule in the other departments of the Island not within his immediate surveillance. Trial by jury, which in this country—and indeed in ail j countries wher6 men know and appreciate their civil rights—is regarded as the very palladium of our liberty, is there unknown, and the mereipw dixiit'of the Captain' General consigns his victim to the ganot, to the chain-gang, or to the dungeon, as it pleaseth him. That this unchecked and irresponsible power has led to corruption the most gross, tyranny the most cruel, and punish ment the most unjust, is a consequence inevitable, and a matter of publifc and indisputable notoriety. Such an engine in the hands of a1 good man is fo be dreaded—wielded by a bad' one, there is no barrier strong enough to ward off its oppressions. Anec dotes innumerable are told of the acts of gross fraud and rank injustice,perpetrated under this sys tem by the predecessors and deputies of the inflexi ble Tacon,and how he with characteristic magna nimity opened the prison gates of many who were unjustly held captive, and put their persecutors in their place. Radically bad a*-is the system, he by both precept and example, has much meliorat ed its ministration. . . . The Captain General is assisted in Ins judicial duties by one learned in Spanish colonial law, who is called an assessor. There is besides the Au diencia, or supreme court, to which an appeal lies in certain cases, both civil and criminal. The pro ceedings in this court are chiefly conducted in writ ing, all bilft and answers being respectively and successively drawn up by the advocates and lodged with the notary of his client, through which medi um the decrees of the court are also made known. When we saw this court in session there were but three judges on the bench—the maximum number is five. Over their heads was a painting of a round faced girl, not yet in her teens, with a plaid scarf over her shoulder, and this was surmounted by a canopy of purple silk. The court room is a small one r there is a railing across the centre,, inside of which no persons pass but the judges, lawyers, and two tipstatfe or 1 ... I _ A.Jax rrllO IQU. consiaDies, who - vers address the court sitting, but never pass in or out without paying obeisance to the bench. They have all, judges, lawyers and constables, . a professional dress. The* lawyers and judges wear shoes w’ith golden buckles, stockings, knee-breeches, and cloak or gown, all of black silk. Projecting over their stock, and falling down round their shoulders, they wear a white, worked muslin collar and cutfs to match.— The dress of the constables is an imitation, ui black serge, of the same. The business is con ducted with great quiet and decorum—no less than four or five of those tipstaves, with white woods in their hands, moving mysteriously about, like so many necromancers, or posted at the doors, to check interruption. We under stood that the law’s delay, which is a question of complaint in all countries that arc so far ad vanced in civilization as to have laws, is one which the people of Cuba have just and peculiar cause to cry out against. A chancery suit is the very embodiment of brevity, compared with an ordinary case brought before the Havana tribu nals. If the manner in which* the pleadings are con ducted be not conducive to eloquence or oratory, it at least brings tax to the treasury, for they aie all written on stamped paper. Three bluim looking castles (the arms of Spain) are stamped on the corner of every sheet, tor which a sum lai beyond the mere value of the paper is paid.— People may call the Spanish Government mibe ei!e, lazy, bigotted, or what they will, but let them not attempt to deprive it of the attribute of ingenuity. In the ten thousand inodes which it has devised to tax indirectly the people of Cuba, it has evinced a perfection in the science of nanciering, it has reached a* degree of State Jer emy Didlerism w hich would'put to the blush* the schemes of old Nick hirnscll—that is it' N*ck or his schemes* ever blushed.

Yesterday a refreshing shower took place; and this day, we have a brisk wind from the South, attended with a delightful atmosphere. The weather to the Northward, this summer, has been much w armer, than with us. The great est degree of heat here, was ou the 2<th instant, when the thermometer, in the shade and open air, stood at 93°. To the North of this city, it has been from 9G°to 100°, being a degree of beat which very seldom takes place in the U. States. The Aborigines of America possessed’ a knowl edge of the healing art, w'hich in many cases far surpassed that of civilized man. By studying they became initiated in her secrets. a?.d the way she pointed out was invariably followed'. Their remedies were obtained from- the vegetable crea* tion, and acting in such perfect harmony with na- ( tural laws, were powerful in the removing and controlling of disease. It is thus Sands1 Sarsaparil la, a purely vegetable preparation, operates on the system. It harmonises and unites with the vis medicatrix natura or life preserving principle, bv its use diseased action is subdued, and the vi tal powers enabled to perforin their functions. Indigestion or dyspepsia, obstinate diseases of the skinf such as salt rheum, ringworm, scald head, and other similar diseases, scrofula or King’s evil, rheumatism, enlargement of the glands, and other affections, are safely and certainly cured by its use*. _ „ .

FLOUR.—There is no demand for Howard street Flour, and the transactions are very small. Holders generally ask $5,75 for fresh ground of good mixed brands, while parcels not so recently manufactured, are offered at $5,50. The only transaction that has come to our knowledge to day is the sale of 100 bbls. of fresh ground at $5,874- 1° tbe present state of the market, we are unable to name a definite receipt price. Wo hear of no transactions in City Mills Flour. It could be bought at $5,75; the stock is extreme ly light. A small sale of Susquehanna Flour was made to-day at $5,75. GRAIN.—The receipts of Pennsylvania Wheat yesterday and to-day were light, being only a bout 1000 bushels. We note a sale of a pareel, not prime, at 117 cts., and another at 120 cts. A parcel of strictly prime was sold at 122 cts. The demand for Wheat to-day is less animated. We hear of no receipts of Md. Wheat. Sales of Md.

On the Pst July a very large amount will be paid out here and elsewhere in the shape of dividends, besides the redemption of $7,000,000 Treasury Notes, which will doubtless be replaced by a fo reign loan. The position of the country has changed very much within a short period. We manufacture more, and import less, than former ly—while our exports ace greatly increased, by the addition* of provisions and; cotton fabrics, ff this state of things continues, aud we see no rea son to apprehend a change, the tide of bullion must continue to flow into the country, and the rates of interest become a3 low, if not lower, than those of London and Amsterdam* The New-Yorfc correspondent of the Philadel phia North American writes as follows: The sto ry going the rounds about the great exportation of goods is all moonshine, It is merely a single case of many where goods have been brought here and transhipped to Europe. Those in ques tion are going on board a Sicilian vessel, to save the heavy duties on foreign bottoms. The case of a vessel with sugar, which you all remember was seized on account of illegal packages, was a branch of the same business. Correspondence of the United States Gazette.
