The Journal of Commerce took no active part
either for or against tho election or Preaiaeni
Pierce, liut the unmeasured abuse mai naa
been heaped upon him by hi9 political oppo.
nents. and eten by some of hia pretended polit
ical friends, of the abolition stripe, raises a
strong presumption in his favor, it never having
been surpassed, within our recollection, in the
case of any President except Madison and
Jackson, two of the greatest men next to
Washington, who have adorned our history,
All the traitors the country over are found
amomr his bitter opponents. Other opponents
he has. not a few, and many of them worthy of
respect and commence, uui sun n is a iaci, ana
a significant one, that all the traitors and scini
traitors throughout the country, and all the re
sistants and instigators of resistance to the na
tion's authority nnd law, are among the most
malignant foes of President Tierce. This sin
cle fact speaks volumes in his favor.
There is another witness whom we propose
to call to the stand and ho will not be object-
cd to as either prejudiced, or unworthy of res
pect. In his recent address to the Free Church
of Scotland, giving an account of his visit to
the United States, the Rev. Dr. Duff makes the
following allusion to President Pierce:
" With regard to the civil head of that great
Republic, I must speak of him as I found him
I was utterly astonished, after being accustom
ed to the unapproachable distance of their high
mightinesses and other royalties in the old world
to find the President of this great country
America, with a commerce nearly equal to our
own, and resources which in time will prove
vastly superior, coming down stairs like a pri
vate gentleman, plainly dressed, without fuss,
or show, or parade ; and demeaning himself with
a benign kindliness of manner, as well as the
greatest simplicity, calmness and dignity, such
as became the head of such a great country.
Here there was no footman, or others arrayed
in scarlet or golden drapery, or parti-colored rai
ment no tinsel, no pomp, no display whatev
er. I have no wish to gratify a sickly taste, by
making any reference to the style of western
life, the household economy, or the private con
versation ; but 1 must say that the inquiries
which this exalted personago made about sun
dry affairs, the knowledge which ho possessed
of what was going on everywhere, and the de
sire to know about the existing state of things,
more particularly in British India, were of a na
ture to indicate that he was a man of grasping
and reaching intelligence; and, whatever might
be the opinion of mere partizans, that he was
one not unworthy to fill the high otlice which
ho holds as the head of the greatest Republic
tho world has ever seen (Cheers). His lady, I
rejoice to say, appeared to be a Christian out
and out ; and right glad was I to find such a la
dy associated in the more private duties of the
position now occupied by the successor of the
immortal Washington. While here, 1 bad of
fers of service in every conceivable way eve
ry thing was done by Senators and Members of
the House of Representatives, ten thousand
times more than could be looked for, and I could
not help Baying to it all, it is the Lord's doing.
But I must hurry on the time nt my disposal
Gerritt Smith. Tho Abolitionists seem de
termined to throw Gerritt Smith overboard.
They cannot tolerate his association on terms
of friendly intercourse with Southern members
of Congress. The New York Tribune in al
luding to the fact of his having resigned his seat
in Congress, makes the following remarks upon
his Congressional career :
'It is not to bo denied that the Southrons
have found Gerritt moro hoofless than they ex
pected, nnd he, on tho other hand, has been
somewhat smitten with them. They have free
ly dined with him, and dined well; they would
have wined also, but for tho unlucky circum
stance of his being a teetotaller. They like
him, even with that drawback, and though he
tells them that he won't help catch fugitive
slaves, but will help them get away whenever
he can. With all his ultraism, they find him
not half so effective an opponent of their pro
jects and policy as many others more moderate
who confront them in the Capitol, and who at
home are steadily voted ogainst as pro slavery!
by zealots who ought to know over so much
better. Mr. Smith has made two or three good
speeches this session ; but as a practical legisla
tor or adversary of Slave Power, he has not
been weighty. His ideas are too transcendent
al for this gross, material planet, and his acts
seem often deficient in common sense."
But Mr. Smith has had the audacity to ex
press his opinions upon tho subject of " Mani
fest Destiny," and avowed himself in favor of
tho ultimate absorption of Mexico and Cuba.
In regard to the latter he is reported to have
said, " he would havo Cuba come to us. He
would not consent to wait for Spain. If this is
filibustering, make the most of it. With him
it was a question of human rights and philan
thropy." A Washington correspondent of the
New York Times makes tho following comment
upon this speech :
" Gerritt Smith's remarkable speech of to-day
excites mingled emotions of surprise, mortifica
tion and distrust among Northern men. It was
not expected that the extra radical Abolitionist
would advocato the acquisition of all of Mexi
co and of Cuba with slavery ; nor was it sup
posed that he could mako a speech on such a
subject, which would draw upon him the con
gratulations of prominent Southern men. But
Mr. Smith is determined to make a sensation
the only practical end ho seems likely to ac
complish in political life."
Gerritt will probably very soon find himself
in the positition of Mr. Webster, when ho in
quired " Where am I to goj"

THE GRAND RIVER TIMES.
GRAND HAVEN, MICHIGAN
WEDNESDAY EVENING. JULY, 12, 185-1.
News or the Week. Tho time of closing
tho session has been discussed with considera
ble spirit in both branches of Congress. Final,
ly the joint committee of conference from tho
House and Senate havo agreed upon the 4th of
August as tho day of adjournment. It is prob
able that the committee's recommendation will
be accoded to.
The last mails bring intelligence of another
collision at sea between the clipper ship Trade
Wind and the ship Olympia, off Cape Sable,
which occasioned the immediate sinking of both
vessels, and the loss, as is supposed, of about
twenty lives; aUo of a frightful railroad col
lision, on the 4th, near Baltimore, resulting in
the death of about forty persons and the wound
ing of one hundred others. It occurred be
tween the regular passenger train and a return
ing excursion train, containing nearly two thou
sand persons, and is represented to havo been
the result of a most culpable negligence.
On tho 5th, the steamer America arrived at
Halifax bringing from Europe important news
to many interested in the markets, breadstuffs
having submitted to a large decline in conse
quence of favorable weather for growing crops.
From the seat of war there is nothing that
is really exciting. For some time past atten
tion has been principally directed to Sillistria,
a Turkish fortress on the Danube which has
been invested by a largo force of Russians. Tho
latest report says that the Turks have driven
back their assailants and compelled them to
abandon the siege. Aside from this but little
has occurred that possesses much interest. In
such actions as have taken placo the Russians
seem, for the most part, to havo had the worst
of it, but none of these have been such as to
have any decisive bearing upon the result of the
contest. Although much has been said as well
as done to excite public expectation, and altlio'
it was anticipated that great events would have
been announced before this, still but little com
paratively has thus far been done. Not
withstanding his lofty pretensions Sir Charles
Napier has not yet made the promised capture
of Cronstadt, or accomplished any other re
nowned achievement. Both the fleet under his
command and that under Dundas are taking
things quietly and the war generally seems to
progress in a very easy manner.
Tho Hollander is still blazing away on
the subject of the Swamp Lands. An article
in the State Journal advocating an entire ap
propriation of the proceeds of these lands by
the State, without regard to the condition of
drainage, has become a target at which it has just
pointed a shot with good precision and we pre
sume with some effect. The Hollander has
from the first spiritedly opposed the sales that
are soon to take place, and has at times been
rather severe upon Commissioner Kibbee for
the course he has pursued in relation to the
same, it has become our conviction that the
legislation had by our State, regarding the
swamp lands is at fault, and that the plan which
is now being pursued, and which finds numerous
advocates among members of the press, is not
the one which will best subserve the interests
of the State, or the one which good faith to
wards the United States seems to demand ; still
wo do not discover that tho Commissioner has
done any more than to comply with tho require
ments of the law, and wo are not disposed to
complain of him or impugn his motives, simply
because he does not choose to act in direct op
position to the obvious intention of tho legisla
ture. We have no idea that it is.intended to apply
any portion of the proceeds of these lands for
the purposo of drainage or that those desiring
to purchase will bo governed in their bids by
any such expectation. Yet nothing is more cer
tain than tho fact that tho swamp lands were
ceded to tho States not as a gratuitous act of
iberality on tho part of Congress, but as a
consideration for undertaking to drain the same,
and thus promoting the healthfulness of tho
country, and enhancing tho value of such gov
ernment lands as were remaining in their vicini
ty. The proper object of the grant is one of
very great importance to the people of our
State, and one which could, probably, bo ac
complished under good management with such
a portion of the lands as to leavo a large re
mainder to the State, the proceeds of which
could in good faith be applied to some or all of
tho laudable objects that have in connection
with this subject found their advocates before
the public. Only the lands situated in the more
thickly inhabited portions of the State have yet
been sold or advertised. The remainder, com-
prising much the largest part, will not, wo pre
sume, bo offered before another session of the
legislature. Should that be tho case wo shall
hope for the passage of an act that will provide
for a disposal of the land not sold in a manner
calculated to secure the most effectual and
speedy accomplishment of the true object of the
EST" The work of building the new steamer
designed to ply on the river is now going for
ward. Tho Ottawa brought up a quantity of
material which is to be used in her construction.
Unless some drawback should occur the new
boat will bo out in time to see considerable ser
vice this year.
v The Grand Haven and Chicago Route..
The new propeller Ottawa, commanded by that
veteran of the lakes, Capt. Harry Miller, ar.
rived from below on Wednesday of last week.
Saturday evening she started out on her first
trip to Chicago, well loaded with freight and
passengers. The Ottawa is , a good looking
craft, and though constructed more especially
for the purpose of carrying freight, she is, nev.
ertheless, admirably arranged for the comfort of
passengers, and is everything that could be ex
pected or desired in this last respect.
The Fourth. According to previous notice
the propeller Foss garo a free ride from Mus
kegon to. this place and back. This was made
the occasion for a general turn out on the part
of our Muskegon neighbors, and the arrival of
the Foss was the most marked event of tho day.
This, together with a short visit from a pleas
ure party who came by one of the river boats,
and an almost constant explosion of fire-crack,
era, was about all that occurred out of the or
dinary course of events until evening, when the
boys gave a display of fire-works which was
well managed and went off with admirable ef
fect. The New Steamers of the Michigan Cen
tral Line. We learn from the Buffalo Ex.
press, of the 3d inst., that the now steamer,
Western World, had just been completed, and
that her mate, the Plymouth Rock, would also
bo out in the course of tho same week. Both
boats havo probably already commenced run
ning between Buffalo and Detroit, and they are
beyond question a proud addition to the lake
marine. The dimensions of each aro as fol
lows: length 346 feet, breadth of beam 42 J
feet, depth of hold 15J- feet, tonnage 2,002,
Custom-IIouso measurement. The two nro
built exactly alike, and are represented as being
elegant, Bafe, comfortable, well officered, and
furnished also in a most princely manner.
The Weather. During the greatest part of
the last two weeks the weather has been exceed
ingly hot. At this placo tho thermometor ha3
stood as (ligh as 06 deg. in the shade. In oth
er localities, some of them near and some of
them remote, there has been a still greater de
gree of heat. At Holland, as we learn from
the Hollander, tho thermometer stood at 102
deg. in tho shade, on tho 3d inst.

The Detroit Advertiser, of the 3d inst., con
tains a list of 51 names purporting to be citi
zens of Grand Rapids, attached to the call for
tho Free Soil and Whig Mass Meeting to be
held at Jackson, to-morrow. We have looked
over the list and find not n single name that we
recognize as a cititzen of this county ; our Post
master says tho same. Who furnished the
names? It is a matter of no consequence,
however, for the call itself is a barefaced, unmit
igated lie! and every man of ordinary intelli
gence who has signed it with a knowledge of
its contonts, has put his name to as barefaced a
falsehood as ever was written. They can't make
much political capital by such means. It is too
early in the campaign to commence that game ;
there is time for the truth to operate. Go ahead ;
nominate your speckled ticket, trot out your
best nags, and when the November races come
off wo will leave them " on the other fcido of
Jordan" where they will be glad to stay.
Grand Rapids Enquirer, 5th inst.
The Gadsden Treaty. The following are
the leading points in tho new treaty with Mex
ico for the carrying into effect of which an ap
propriation of $10,000,000, has just been voted
by both Houses of Congress :
1st. Mexico cedes to the United States a strip
of territory, known as the Mesilla Valley, which
is supposed to be rich in precious minerals, and
possessing a fertile soil.
2d. The United States Government is releas
ed from the duty, enjoined upon it by the Guad
alupe Hidalgo treaty, of protecting the Mexican
frontier against tho Apache, Camanche, and
3d. Gives the United States the privilege of
transporting mails and the property of the Uni
ted States across the Isthmus Tehuanlepec free
of imposts. It also provides that no higher
charge shall be made upon the transit of citi
zens of the United States and their property
than upon the persons and property of other
nations. , Passports are not required of pass
engers. 4th. The free navigation of tho California
Gulf is accorded to vessels of the United States.
This clause not only opens Mazatlan and Sono
ra to the traffic of our people, but admits them
to the pearl fisheries, for which that Gulf has
A Traitor and Infidel. Windill Phillips,
one of the prominent leaders of the anti-slavery
fiarty in New England, recently spoke as fol
ows before a meeting of his brethren:
M It was tho Infidel society whose anniversary
was now being held it was the treasonable so
ciety; and though there were several anti-slavery
debating societies in the country, this was
the infidel society, and tho society cling to this
appellation, and hoped that it would be carried
down to posterity. It is a disunion society, and
he was glad to be able to profess his creed at
such a time and to such an audience. The
Union sentiment is tho great vortex which swal
lows tip the great minds, and they have power
enough for the time being, to influence the peo
ple. The only remedy for the slave is tho des
truction of the Government. I challenge any
man to tell mo what the Union has done for us."
