reir.s ks upon this subjvet si. - ' The bounday line of Texas is tlie great sub ject bow oecupyiag the attention of the eoun- try. The peace and harmony of the Union art deeply involved in its satisfactory settle ment The claim of Texas upon ihe" territo ry of New Mexico, though perhaps oot wlto guthef without show of reason, can not be maintained by that State without at once pro v.king serious collision, not only with the J-wal government of New Mexico, but with the " United States. The necessity of quieting tJ.ese claims, and removing nil occasion for fu ture difficulty, has been generally acknowl taged at Washington, and several measures . have been suggested in order to accomplish , this end. It has been proposed to refer the termination of the real boundary to the su preme court, and again refer it to scientific board of commissioners, but either of these steps would involve delay, and most unhappi ly, if not dangerously, prolong the existing agi tiaia of the country. Direct legislative action ha. been recommended by the President, and ha met the most decided approbation of at 1 tst one branch of Congress. The extent of t rotary ia dispute is so large that neither party in interest could be prevailed npon, ev en by any pecuniary indemnity, to concede in j io to the other, and consequently the only expedient has been to divide and give a por tion to each. . Different lines have been attack ed and defended with great spirit and vigor. Co give our readers a clear view of the geo- .... jjraphical features of the controversy, we have r eat pleasure in presenting them to-day. with . a map of the region in dispute It will be found in the main quite accurate, though there tod some localities upon it of doubtful eorrect-fi-ss. particularly the town of El Pas concern '"; the exact position of which even the best a ihoriiies disagree. - --.--.'''- Texas claims from the month to the head y atars of the Rio Grande, and thence north to . north latitude 42 degrees, where the line cor- tiers with Oregon and JJeseret New Mexico Claims, with about as little reason apparently, . XiOwn as fir sonth Humbodlt's line, designated on the map. . The line near El Paso laid down n the map as the "line of the new Constitu tion," is more probably, her real southern : bounuary than any other. i' Thedividing line, as proposed bv Mr. Cby's Compromise bill, commenced at .1 Paso and run twenty miles dirgcily north, then proceeded t tiia;onally in a nrijl-westerly direction to the south western sngleof the Indian terrritory. , Xtis line, it' will be perceived,, cut of ait im portant portion of Mew Mexico and abruptly severed aome of the rivers of Texas ; and at iie south-western extremity,' r.ot perfectly represented on the map, it took a small trian- ; tie, compristna orazito. and two or three otn .ther small settlement from New Mexico and attached them to Texas. The bill of Senator Pearce, which has just passed the Senate, ; Starts the lioe of Texas -on the north at the point at which the nurredian of 100 deg. ts in tersected by tha parallel of 38 deg. 30 mio, end runs due west to the merediah of 103 deg. 2? west, thence due south to the 32d deg. of uarth latitude, thence along this parallel to the -io urande, and down the channel ot thenv - r to ija'mcxith. "By adopting this line, four -or five thousand square miles are saved to Sew Mexico; the valleys -anti waters ot the Upper Puerto are reserved, and the 'small ' setUements above El Paso are-retained, which jmosld. have been surrendered to. Texas by M Clay's proposition. "At ther north and west, Texas acquires much more territory by this bill, than by the compromise; bat the whole : rerioti is wild and. barren, and will never serve say other purpose than as a' bunting ground for the Indians. Texas surrenders to New Mexico 124,000 square miles of her now jUrm- ed territory, and New Mexico surrenders to Texas 70,000 square miles of the territory she claims. 1 be cession from iexas includes all Nw Mexico east of - the Kio del Norte from twenty-five miles above El Pasco to the head of the river, comprising some twenty or thirty towns and villages and seventy thousand New Ui-xicari people, who now admit ni allegiance to iexas. Mr. Benton proposed to mane me raered'.an of 102 the western boundary of lex as, beginning at the. Del Norte just below the mouth of the Puerco, and about 300 miles in s straight line below El Paso.- An amendment to this effect was defeated in the Senate by a great majority. - A Urge section of the south ern members in both Houses are strongly, and come, perhaps, uncompromisingly, in favor of the extension of the Missouri line of 36 SO - through New Mexico and California to the Pa cific, regarding it as the only admissible line of cemarkauon between slavery ana no sia -Tery. .. ... Deatn of a Forger. Astounding Disclosure The Madison Jtobbery.&e. Under the above head ing, the Louisville Courier of Wednesday pub Iisie the following statement: "Among the victims of the cholera on Mon day night last, was . a convict in the Indiana penitentiary, at Jeffersonviile, named Boot He was sentenced to the penitentiary for six years, under a charge of having robbed the bank at Madison, la, of some $28,000, his sentence woald have expired next month.

It was ad dressed by Mrs. Judson to the childron of Dr. Judson, now residing in Worcester, Mass., and was written on the effective occasion of his late embarkation for the isle of Bourbon, w ith- a view of regaining his health. The letter af fords a touching example of .affection, and of true missionary devotion: Maclmain, April 11, 1850. Mr victor dear Children I have painful news to till you news that I am sure will make your young hearts ache; but 1 hope your heavenly Father will help you to bear it Your dear papa is very, very ill indeed ; so much so that the best judges fear that he will never be any better. He began to fail about five months ago, and has declined so gradualy that we were not fully aware of his danger until lately, but within a few weeks those who love In in have become very much alarmed. In January we went down to Mergui by the steamer, and we returned thougut he was a little better, but he soon failed again. We spent a month at Amherst, but he received little if any benefit. Next.the doctors pronounced our house (the one you used to live in) unhealthy, and we moved to another. But all was of no use. Your papa continued to fail, till suddenly, one evening, his muscular strength gave way, and he was prostrated on the bed, unable to help himself. This occurred about two weeks ago. The doctor now became alarmed, and said tin only hope for him was a long voyage. It was very hard to think of such a thing in his redu ced state, particularly as I out I not go with him ; but after we had wept and prayed over it one day and night, we concluded that it was our duty to use the only means which God had left us, however painful. ;We immediately engaged his passage on board a French barque bound for the island of Bourbon; but before it sailed he had become so very low that no one thought it right for him to go alone. They theiefore called a meeting of the mission and appointed Mr. Ran ney. It was a great relief to me, for he is a very kind man, and loves your dear papa very much; and he will do every thing that can be done for his comfort The officers of the ves sel too, seemed greatly interested for him, as did every one else. He waB carried on board a week ago yesterday, in a litter, and placed on a nice cot made purposely for him. I star ed with him all dav, and at dark came home to stay with the children. The next day 1 found that the ship had mlv dropped down a little distance, and so I took a boat and followed. I expected this certainly would be the last day with him, but it was not On Friday I went again, and though he did not appear as on the previous days, 1 was forced to take as I then supposed, a final leave of him. But when morning came, I felt as though I could not live through the day with out knowing how he was. So I took a boat again, and reached the vessel about 2 o'clock P. M. He could only speak in whispers, but seemed very glad that 1 came. The natives I bad sent to fan him till he should get oat of the river, came to me and begged to have him taken on shore again ; and so small was mv hope of his recovery that my heart pleaded on their sioe, though I still thought it a duty to do as the doctor had said, I came'away at dark, and though his lips moved to say some wind of farewel, they made no sound. ! I hope that you, dear boys, will never have cause to know what a Iieavy heart I bore back t ny desolate home that night The ljaeaael got out to sea about 4 o'cl x-k on Monday, and last night the natives returned, bringing a letter from Mr. Kanney. Your precious papa has revived again spoke alound took a little tea and toast said there was something animating in the touch ot the sea breeze, and directed Mr. Kanney ti write to me that he had a stong belief that it was the will of God to restore him again to health. I feel somewhat encouraged, but dare not hope too much. And now, my dear boys, it will be three perhaps four long months beftire we can hear from our loved one again, and we shall all he err anxious. All we can do is to commit hi m to the care of our heavenly Father and if we never see him again in this world, pray that we may be prepared to meet him in hea ven. Your most affectionate mother, EMILY C. JUDSON. The Sandusky Mirror thinks the Norwalk editors manifest a "bad spirit" in this Rail-road matter. JNo bad spirit" is entertained by us. friend Mirror, far from it. If you can secure your ends by legitimate and fair means, were certainly shall not complain. In speaking of the location of the Junction road, the Mirror says:. "After a warmly contested controversy we 1 aandusky succeeded. I I Controversy, indeed ! ! A few days before the Directors of that road met, to make public a conclusion that had been agreed upon weeks before, they invited the citizens at different p lints upon our route to be present with the evidence of what we could do towards constructing a road up on this line, well knowing that our surreys and estimates were not and could not be got ready for the occassion. and, even had they been complete, and a lair comparison of routes had shown that our road could be built at one MflYie cost of the lake shore road, it would have made no sort of difference in the decision if the directors, because the location was a fixed fact, determined upon before we were invited to be present! lnen, where the con troversy ? One other tning connected with this Junc tion road operation. Their surveys and esti mates were just a.s incomplete as ours, henre nothing definite was or could have been known at that time in regard to the cost of either road. The Directors went it blind, agreeably to previous arrangement with Judge Lane, President and agent of the Md River road. Again, the directors of the Junction road were selected by those in the interest of the Mad River rsad, with special reference to the location made, as a continuance of that road to Cleveland,-Columbus and Cincinnati road, which is rapidly being completed. We state these facts to show that the Junction road, if ever built, will constitute a mere side-cut, and can by no possibility conflict with the interest of our road, w l.ieh is to form a link in the great I Eastern and Western thoroughfare. Norwalk Experiment More Trouble fsrthe Jencffoa. We observe, by the Tribune, that- ihe Mi lan people nre getting their eyes open to the shameless manner in which they were diddled by the Saoduskiansin reference to the Junc tion road. After tolling them on, to prevent their uniting with us, they turned their back upon the in. without even so much as a formal apology. In consequence of, the shnppr treatment received, the Milanese express a fix ed determination to oppose the passage of the Junction road over the Milan Canal, whose charter extends to to the mouth of tlie Huron river. An injunction will doubtless be 'the first step, which will hang the thing np for two or three years, at least, if it does not fi nally defeat the road. Go ahead, Mr. Junc tionif you can - Norwalk Experiment The American Arctic expedition in search of Sir John Franklin, which sailed from New York some months since under the atipsices of Mr. Grinnell, nf that city, has been heard from by an arrival in England.' The littje squadron was pretty well on its voyage. Ev ery thing was going on pleasantly, but nothing had been heard of the lost navigatoa,. The. New York Herald of Saturday contains a letter from one of the officers of the U. S. brig Advance. We give it, with some unim portant omissions: U. S.

On our arrival hers we found an English barque at anchor; she is a store ship, having brought stores and oo;l out for the squadron, which by the way, sailed from here yesterday, consisting of two barques of 300 tons each, carrying sixty men, and steamers of about 100 tons each, with from forty to fifty men ; they are all bound in siarch of Sir John Franklin. The baique sails in a week for England, which will gvee us all a fine chance to write, the only one I am afraid we shall have for some time to rome. We have been very f.irtunete in sending letters thus far. for I boarded a ves sel off Newfoundland .bound into St. Johns, about the 1st of this month. We have all sent letters by her. They were from St Johns, by steamer to Halifax, and from there to the United States. After leavinar N. Y, we kept company with the Roseoe, by keeping under short sail until the 19th ult- when, finding it impossible for her to keep up, we made sail and lost sight of her in a few hours. The days,afler we left New York, tjraduillv trrcw hmtrer until the 16th of this month, (in lat 60 50 a.) when we could really say we had constant day, so much so, that we were able to steer without lighting the binnacle lamp, a thing 1 never saw before but now we have sun shine the whole 24 hours; we hav'nt got use to it yet, and hardly know when turning in time comes. You have no idea how stranse it appears to come on deek at midnisrht (or rather what ouyht to be midnk'hl) and find it broad day light We still discriminate one twelve hours from anoth er, and appropriate the part we call night for sleeping, or rather a portion of it - AW leaving the coast of Newfoundland we fell in with no ire until we were about to make the coast of Greenland, whe" we found the ieeherijs in great numbers. We made Oeenlxnd on the 21st. It certainly is the most dismal.rocky.barren cnuntry.l ever Paw or expect to see Thin morning we met so many and 6uch tarot bergs, that we had to keep strict natch to steer clear of them; however, we manasred successfully, and came into the harbor of Whnlefish Island, with a fine breeze, and anchored at 2 o'clock. I expected to find something of a town, and when we came in I asked where it was, and was shown two shan ties and half a dozen Esquimaux mud huts. In one of the shanties the governor lives; he is a Dane, sent ont by the government, as a kind of missionary, &c. ; he came on board this afternoon. - , The Esquimaux are nsrly and grensy. Men, women and children; all dress alike, in Seal skins. Their dress is a short jumper, with a hood for- cap, pnntalonns coming down to the calves of their leg. with boots to meet : nil made of sealskins, with the hair on: we ax each troing to have a suit before we leave. I bought a pair of sealskin stockings, which are very nice and warm : the only objection to them is, they are not properly cured. I o morrow the doctor and I nre aroing to Luiely a small town on the Island i-f Diseoe, about 25 miles from here, to see what information we can pick no. 27th. I arrived a few hours since from Lui ely, after a pasnaire of six hours. On our ar rival. I found the Rescue had arrived, and that we sail to-morrow. At Lniely we found rather more of a town than at these islands. About 14 Danes live there, 100 Esquimaux. We wer treated with the greatest kindness by the inspector nt Lmelv, who is kind of a ffovernor-sreneral of all these islands. The principal thin" we went after na seal skin rloathinsr for the ofieers and men. We succeeded in wetting; about $50 worth or ahout 12 suits. I have a fin ront made of yntinir deerkin, a pair of sealskin piintaloons andJ otoetcmrrs of the same, and large boots made ot Esquimaux dogskin. My chances for keeping warm are pretiy good. 1 he inspector of Lmelv, who has been out here 4 years, told us thai we would not P el the cold as mnch nt 20 deg. below zro here ns we would at 5 or 6 deg. at home. The i n- spertor. Mr. Olriek, is going home to Denmark to remain this snmmer, and when we came away he ffve us every pair of pantaloons he had of sealskin, except th" pair he had on, and most of his coats, saying he could get more when he retnred. We expect to go to a place called Upper- mnrik. about two hundred miles from here; from there we go to Mellville Bay, thence across Lan-as!er Sfun !. to Cape Walker; from there we shall try to get up to Mellville Island, and as much farther as we ran. We "expect to winter at Mellville Isle ; but that of course will depend very much on circumstan ces. This is the last opportunity we shall have of writing for a long time, unless we have the good luck to fall in with a whaler bound either for home or England. Your affectionate brother, W. S. LOVEL. Tomato Catsup. Mrs. Swiss-helm, in the Pittsburg Saturday Visitor gives the f -Mowing: Our plan of making tatstip into have the tomatoes title and Irish oil Ihe vines, -wash them clean in cold water, and put them right into the kettle, crushing each one in the hand as it dropped in; hang them over the fire and stir them occasionally until they boil about live minutes; then strain, first through a cullender and next through a seive. Get the liquid over the tire again as soon as possible, boil, skim, and stir while jour patience will last, or until it is reduced one halt if two-thirds, all the better. When boiled enough, add to every gallon of this condensed liquor two tcaspoonfuls of salt an ounce of cayenne pepper, the same of black pepper and cloves, a pint of good cider vinegar, with any other spice the taste may dictate. We like it best with an ounce of mace and four of cinnamon to the gallon. Catsup prepared in tiiis way tastes of the to mato and will keep a number of years. We seldom take the troube even to bottle our cat sup, but just put it in ; large i-tone jug, sev eral gallons together, and when we want a bottle just shake up and pour one out, and no matter bow it was fixed, we never could tempt any of it to spoil. In a Western city, two men were bnsily en gaged in popping pistol shots at each other.

He came to this place to reside in 1825 or 1828, and contin ued his residence here till his death. Foremost is every public enterprise, we are much indebted to him for our public improve ments, nnd his liberal aid in contributing to the Settlement, improvement and development of the resources of the country. Th first Memher of Congress from this county, he died at Washington, in the discharge of that pub lic trust. His most prominent traits of character, were, great foresight and sagacity ; and this uniform good sensp and sound judgment he applied to every subject that arose in the practical af fairs of life. These marked traits in the char acter of his mind, made him successful in ev err thing he undertook- He wa-t the kind husband and father and the neighbor and friend of us all. Stricken down in the prime of life, in the midst of. his usefulness to his family and kindred, and to us as a community, his loss is great indeed. Let us then, here, over his grave, resolve to cherish his memory, emulate his virtues, for give and forget his faults. And in conclusion, remember, that as our deceased friend has gone to thp tomb, so we, must all in quick succession, follow him.

The "Booby" Candidate. Let all those who heard Judge Johnston at Oberlin, remember that he is the man whom the locofocog have sought in their characteris tic style of blackguard, to prejudice the peo ple against, by representing him as a great "booby," and applying sundry other approbri- ous epithets to injure him. Let it be remembered too, that the Lorain Argus not only published those contemptible articles from the Statesman and Plain Dealer, but put forth the following qaaint proposition fir the consideration of the voters of Lorain: Remember there is two candidates. The one the people's candidate, the well known 'old Chief of Cuyahoga' the Hon. Reuben Wood, the other 'booby Johnston, known in the North since his nomination by the name of Wm. Johnston. The question for you to decide is whether you will vote for Rueben Wood or "Booby Johnston, alias Wm. Johnston." We yvere uhtd to see Mr. Vincent, the Ar gus Editor, present at the meeting, and, we shall now see whether he will dare repeat this fish-market slang about "Booby Johnston," since the people have heard him. Such pusil lanimous nltacks might pass unnoticed once, but will now only overwhelm their author in confusion and shame, Those puny efforts by the locofocos, to sneer down a citizen, because he once labored for a living, comports very well with the general character of their lead ing politicians.

This letter will put a quietus upon the thous- and rumors and surmises which liave hpen put afloat in relation to this matter, nnd con- most friendly terms, towards the Prpsidpnt and the remaining members of the Cabinet, which precludes all idea of any variance hav ing occurred in nv quarter. Of thisfact, how ever we were previously advised, and were aware that the attempt to poison the public mind with the idea that the new Cabinet had so far disagreed, as to render the retirement of one of its members eithpr necessary or de sirable, was a 'trick of the enprhv. Wo sin cerely regret the resignation of Mr. McKen nan. He brought to Ilia Department a hisrh national reputation as a Jtound, conservative statesman, enjoying unbounded popularity in bis own state, and with the Whig party of the whole country. The following is his h-tter to the Prpsidpnt: f Buffalo Commercial. Mr Dear Sir T most respeetfiilly tender to you my resin-nation of the Department of the Interior, to which you did me the honor of enll- :ng me. This determination has not been reached without the most serious nnd anxious deliberation. . - i - A cociousness of my peculiar temperament, which too readily responds to causes -f excite ment and depression, would have - prompted me in the first place to decline the offer, but the kind manner of the appointment, accompa nied by the good wishes of the Cabinet and hacked by the pressing urgencies of friends, made so strong an impression on me as to leave no alternative but an acceptance. A brief experience of the arduous labors and onerous responsibilities, however, in con nection with considerations of a private and domestic nature which press with great force, have brought me to the conclusion that a due regard for the interest of. my family and mv self, require my withdrawal. In thus dissolv ing my brief official association' with you, per mit me to say that I cherish a confident reli ance upon the patriotism, capability and Worth of every member of the administration, nnd a hopeful assurance of its success. - To this end, no effort of mine in 'my retire ment fhall at any time be wanting. M iy I not also assure yon of my grateful appreciation of the kindness extended to me by you and your o3i--ii! associntes? With respect, and sincere regard. I am Yours faithfully, THOMAS M.

We have been here sixty days, and we have 3TN0T YET SETTLED THE FIRST PRINCIPLE for the New constitution. It is true, we hare made a book, which may be read of some thousand pages, when the indexes and titles shall be attached. Mr. Loudon was followed by Mr. Leadbet ter, who during his remarks said I would like to say a Word in relation to what the convention has done ; I am unwill ing that it should go out from the mouth of as good a d.'inoerat as the gentleman from Brown, Mr. Loudon that this convention has been in session, sixty days -ntiJ do le .nothing. There has never come "under my observation any deliberative body that evinced a better working spirit than this convention, nnd if we have not accomplished as much as we might have done, it has been because of 3TTHE CONFLICT OF OPINION; for we have been in session hours enough to have done a great deal of work." Mr. Loudon interposing, and Mr. L. yielding. said : 'In the declaration that the convention had done nothing, I meant only to say that WE HAVE SETTLED NO PRINCI PLE. I admit frankly tliat we have done a great deal we have made a book of a thous and pages, nnd settled, as far as we could, in committee of the whole, very many important mutters; but we have3TSETTLED NOTH ING DEFINITELY.

No one was more beloved, was more respected, or whose absence will be more re gretted by all parties. A gentleman in the highest and best acceptance of the term, his place will be difficult to fill. Resignation of Hon. C. N. Olds. By a communication from this gentleman in another column in will be seen that he has forwarded to the government his resignation as a senator in the Ohio legislature. We regret that illness in the family of Mr. Olds has compelled him to take this course. During the recent stormy proceedings of the legislature, Mr. Olds rendered efficient service and proved a reliable advocate of law and or der. Had he been permitted to have taken his seat in the senate, th ensuing winter, we would doubtless have found him discharging failhfullv his duties and Wking with an eye sinole to the interests of his constituents, and the state o-enerallv. We trust the health ofi his family may be fully reinstated and he be prepared to enter upon the duties of either private or public life, as occasion may demand. ivjiry-ievuiv ucioiu.

Again, by the express letter of their charter, Fremont is not only made a point but the ter minus of their road I Notwithstand all this, the arrogant Junction Directors have refused to make Fremont a point, except upon certain conditions! This, however, is only of a piece with their hot hast in pretending to let con tracts from Elyria to Sandusky, before their estimates and surveys are made.orat least com pleted, clearly and evidently witti me view i frighten us from pushing on onr road. They understand full well the superior feasibility of our route over theirs, and the imminent dan ger in which they are placed, which sufficient ly explains and accounts for the desperaiiota of our Sandusky neighbors. If the lake shore route is really so much more feasible than ours, as some of its friends so boasfully pretend, why such precipitation? Why not complete their surveys and estimates, and exhibit them to the public ? For the very best reas on in the world, they would look shockingly bad in contrast with ours.
