ADVERTISING SHERIFF;!' SALES OF LAND.
Our country colemporaries are again urging the
propriety nf re-cnacling the old law requiring slier
itfis lo ad'ortie in newspapers all sales of land
under execution. So far as our paper is concerned
we el little interest in the mater. We have so
larg.? sfi-aiiioutit of more valuable advertising that
the advcitisenienls of that class which would come
to in wciv the law re-enacted is a matter of almost
entire iiidittumice. Still, the propriety of the
nhangfe i, in our opinion, unquestionable. Tho
present -system, were it intended expressly to pro
vide for the advertising of bud in such a'nianner
that-nobody should ever hear of it, could not be bet
ter devised. The cost of advertising is a mere trifle,
Which vriiW, on an average, be repaid a hundred
fold in the increased price of lands sold. The Leg
islature which repea'ed the law in question seems
to have been influenced by a paltry spite against
printer., and, lo prevent them from earning a few
dollars, onnniil-id an act of gross injustice towards
debtors. It is due to non-residept land owners es
pecially that the old law be restored.
The Clarksville Jeflersonian says :
iii:rFk's Aiivkrtisemkxts". While Merchants,
Mt chanie-j mid others, are endeavoring to bettPr
their temporal condition through legislative onact
iiietit, we would politely suggest to those members
f tlie legislature who, during the recent canvass
hid tlie interest of the "dear people" so much at
l.esiit. that there is another class of individuals who
i-w.juire u small quantity" of legislative action.
YW :dlud" to Printer?, and wc will briefly explain
our meaning. At present there is a law in our
.'Stale, which provides that publishers shall receive so
Mtvii. and so mork. Now, w o gut but -ypry little
nf this kind of adertising to do, and cannot there
fore hv. aci-nsed of selfishness iu the demands we
mnVe Mill, when we do get it we want ocn price
lor if, and .ivde?ire to see justice accorded to whom
iusfv is due induces us to urge the immediate re
jmu! of ytii-li a law. In our humble opinion, the
IrgiidHtiirc has ju?t as much right to establish our
K&Urity, or snv hw much we bhall pay per Uiou

One more Miggestion and we hto dojje with our

W done by mnking the fict generally known that
the. property to be sold and this fart cannot be
tiKiritAU.v known except through tho advertising
eohiMiis of the ne upapers. The present law only
authorize the Sheriil'to stick up. in public places,
two or three writtex notices. When this in done
he Las pcrfonued his duty and complied with the
provisions of thi contemptible law. We consider
thn system a perfect swindle a baitto Kpetuilators,
who can slyly tear the said notices down, aud have
Juit liltle ."melion on the day of sale.
The written notices cost kotiiiko, and aro liable
n destniction within ten minutes after they are
posted. The insertion of the same notice in a news
paper, will cost, perhap", two or three dollars. In
mie instance, two notices, baplv wnirrr.v, are cir
culatedin the other, six or seven hundred, or a
thousand copies of the same notice aro rmsTEn for
vveral wvak in succession, and tlie result is, a
force attendance at the sale, and a probability that
the property will fell at an advance of from ten to
twenty p?r cent. Any man who enjoys the pos

liability to the publisher.
Wc" doubt whether six men could be found in

We visited, ou AVednesday, tho scene oflie
burning of said mail, and obtained the following
particulars. It is well known tliat the I'ost Ollici!
Department is entirely dependent upon IJailnwil
Gouipanies for the transmission of its principal
mails through the country; aud it is also equally
well known that the ItailroaJ Uompan es have not
as yet fully adapted their transportation System to
this kind of service, preferring first to accommodate
passengers as their principal business, and, second
ly, the mails. The consequence is, that cars ex
pressly adapted to the mail service, -have not been
provided; and the mails, especially tlie through
mails, have had to be treated as ordinary freigut,
or a species of Government baggage, and stowed
away with express goods, passenger baggage, or
any other luggage that might happen to accompany
a passenger train.
This system will, of course, be improved as fast
as Railroad Conipauies can find it fur tltetr intertvt
to do so, and the Department is using its utmosi
endeavors to have them adopt the improvements
speedily. The plan of a model mail car has been
got up by tlie Post Master General, aud introduced
wherever by contract a Uailroad Company could be
induced to adopt it, which provides a place for
through a3 well as way mails, both in charge of
Post Office routeagents, in every case where practi
cable. Tjie car on which the late mail was burned was
a common frcightcar, open only at the sides. When
it was found to be on fire, it being in the night, and
tho train in rapid motion, there was no way of
communicating the. fact lo tho conductor, or the
engineer, except by tlie cry of " lire," and the noise
of the cars aud machinery in this case rendered
that mode ineffectual, l-or miles tlie train sped ou
its fiery way amid the solitude and darkuess of
night, until the flames bursting out. lit up tho scene
around, and the discover' was made by the brake
men. It did not want but a few minutes, with a
fire kindled in such combustibles, (there were sev
eral sacKs ot leathers in tlic car.) tanned by such a
breeze as the speed of a train wciuld naturally make,
to ignite the whole contents to a glowing heat.
When tlic train waslinally stopped, the flames from
tho burning car were some twenty feet liigh, light
ing up the country for miles around. Tne flames
occupied the side apertures, and there wa no in
gress except through tlie ends, which were battered
m as soon as they could be; and what was left un
consumed, was taken out and extinguished as soon
as possible of the baggage, out of some sixty
trunks, scarcely a whole one was found. The mail
shared a similar fate. Not a mail bag, either lock
or canvas, was found worth repairing. Of their
contents, some eight or ten bushels of the burned
remnants have been saved, and now await, in the
Cleveland post office, the orders of the Department.
It is most of it due at Cincinnati, Louisville, St.
Louis, and other southern offices. It came mostly
from New York city, and included a very heavy
foreign mail brought by tho Atlantic. A very large
portion of tho New York matter consists of bills
of goods, invoices, notes, drafts, acceptances, &c,
the usual business paper of that large commercial
city, which, at this season of the year, compose the
larger portion of its mails West,
The Post Master at Greenwich, where, the con
flagration took place, immediately gathered and
filled a couple of dry goods boxes of this rubbish,
and sent it to the Cleveland office. We have since
picked up auother box, aud all of any interest or
yaltie Jell, which wo expect orders to-morrow to
forward to their places of destination; so far as the
same can be ascertained. Cleveland Plaindealer.

The Asia's news, looked for with so much anxie
ty, did not become known, until some fifteen minutes
past 3, P. M., when it was read aloud during high
chauge. She had been telegraphed in the offing
some hours before, which, as soon as it became
known, put a stop to all transactions in produce, of
moment; anq no saies oi consequence weru re
ported after the news transpired. It was, iu a ik-
iitical and financial point of view, hailed as decid
edly more favorable, though it exhibited some heav
iness and falling off in breadstuffs. The prospects
of re-establishing peaceable relations, were believed
to ho dwidedly more favorable,
The celebrated war dispatch had proved to be
erroneous, at loast so far as tho statement was con
cerned that the Fultan had signed the declaration
of war, and that hostilities had commenced. It
was believed that before the Sultan, backed as he
waa by the naval forces of France and England,
would, in violation of their counsel and advice, sign
tho declaration of war, the peace movement of 01
mutz and Vienna would reach Constantinople and
open a door for the reconciliation of pending diffi
culties A private letter of the 7th inst., from Liv
erpool to a house in this city, slates that there is so
little dependence to be placed upon the successive
minors on the question of peace or war, that it is
most advisable toawait the solution by facts. Again,
speaking of the war dispatch previously referred
to, it says that later advices, since received, have
proved that it was either a hoax or premature. It
was believed to have been sent on by the agents of
corn speculators, lo enable large holders in London
to spll out under the Panic such a message would
necessarily create, ana to counteract the news of
the peace movements of Oimutz, which had de
pressed prices. And it appeared from the letter re
ferred to, that on the publication of the dispatch,
the demand improved, and prices recovered within
2d. on wheat, and lid. on flour, of former quota
tions. After the contradiction, by later advices, of the
dispatch, the decline, compared to the previous
market dav on which it was received, was 3d to
4d per bushel on wheat, and nearly Is per barrel on
flour. It was stated that the dispatch referred to
liad inflicted a vast deal of mischief, both in Eng
land and in the United StaU 8. It hail caused large
amounts of property, in public stocks and other se
curities, to be sacrificed under the panic it had cre
ated. The effect in this country was more protract
ed than in England, because the contradiction more
speedily followed the fraud there than here.

ET The New York Hemld is a good newspa
per, aud on this account, as well a. ou account of
its money and commercial articles, has a very large
circulation. Perhaps, too, it owes some ol its cir
culation to the slap-dash, bowie-knife styles of its
articles. But whoever undertakes to follow its po
litical lead will follow a most venal and reckless
guide. In politics that paper is without principle
and without character. Its assaults upon Presi
dent Pierce's cabinet are as vindictive as they are
unjust. And the reasons assigned for these us
sjults are false and deceptive. If any one were to
undertake to review the political history of the Her
ald it would be shown that it lias always acted
without principle, and been actuated alone by sel
fish and sordid motives.
Nor is any reliance to be placed in its statements
of the past history of previous administrations. For
instance, it asserts as a historical fact that the dis
tribution of the surplus revenue among the States,
ordered by Congress in 1S30, tookJplace under the
Yan Buren administration; when it is a notorious
fact that in the first ycarof thatadministration there
was a called session of Congress to put a stop to
that distribution, which' was effected. Of a like
character is the Heralds statement of six millions
being lost under that administration by defalcations,
forty millions by the Florida war, and public plun
der generally. All the statements arc unmitigated
falsehoods, and the Herald knows it.
Its assaults upon the Sacretary of the Treasury
are as impotent as the statements we have noticed
are "false, lauisettte Time-

greatest rat-killing scrapes that ever came off west
of the mountains, or any where else, probably, was

but was six minutes in slaying thirty rats, and was
then withdrawn. Now, the fastest work ever done
by dog, on rats, in this country heretofore, was by

, . -A hinall Hotel experience,
Which filled my heart with grief.
Lant summer at the C!arcndont
1 stopped a week or more,
And marked two. "boot-iea," every nionw
ltefore my neighbor's door;
Two boots with patent leather tips '
Two boots which seemed to say, "
r :
"Au uDgel trots around in us"
They stole myheartaway. ' """"
1 saw the servant take 'em, offjr . -Willi
those ot other brntes;
Ills soul was all on sixpences, - -
Hut mine uaiin the boots.
And often in my nightly dreams ,
They swept before my tace, , ,
A lady growing out of them, -.
As flowers grow from a vase.
Hut all! one mom I saw a sight
Which struck me like a atone.
Home other name was on tlie book,
Tkoe hoolt tvtre nut ahue!
A great tall pair of other boots
Were standing by Iheir side, J
And off Ihey walked that afternoon.
And with them walked a bride!
Enough, enough my song U sung,
Love a tree bears bitter fruits;
Beware of beauty, reader mine,
But oh! bewaie of boota!
EST" This sweet little song from tlie Boston Pos t
is worthy of an echo in music. Who will give it in'
song?
Go where the water glidelh gently ever,
Glideth by meidows that the greenest be;
Go listen tu our beloved rirer,
And thick of me!
- - Wanderin forest, wheietl.esuiall tt iwerlarelh
Its fairy gem beside the giant tree;
Listen the dim brook pining while it playcth,
Andihink of mo!
Watch when the sky is silver pale at e ren.
And the wind grieveth in the lonely tree;
Go out beneath the solitary heaven.
And think of me!
And when the moon riseth, as she were dreaming;
And treadetli with while feet ihe lulled sea;
Go, silent s a star beneath her beaming.
And think of me !
This world isa prison in every respect,
"Whose walls are the heavens in common,
The gouler sin and the prisoners men,
And the fetters are nothing but women.

As Old Maw.
Miss Riitis Tiik Limbless Ladv. This most ac
complished person, having been born with neither
arm or legs, contrived to paint miniature's and cut
watch jiaper with her nose.
Miss Rilliu, before her marriage, was taken to
Covent Garden Theatre, early in the evening, before
tlie performance began, by tlie gentleman to whom
she was afterwards united. He having some other
engagement, deposited his fair charge iu the corner
of the back seat of one of the upper front boxes,
"where, aided by a long drapery, sueh,a3 children in
arms wear, and a large sluavl, she satas unmoved as
immoveable, enjoying the play and farce not, per
haps, applauding in the ordinary style by clapping,
or expressing her impatience at any needless delay
by stamping on the floor.
The engagement, however, of the beau proved
longer than the performance of the theatre. The
audience retired, and lights were extinguished, and
still Miss Hilli ii remained: The box keeper ven
tured to assert that as all the company were out, and
most of the lights were out too, it was necessary she
should retire. Unwilling to discover her misfortune,
and not at all knowing how far she might trust tlie
box keeper, she expressed great uneasiness that
her friend had not arrived as he had promised.
"We can't wait here for your friend, Miss. You
really must go," was the only reply she obtained
from the obdurate janitor.
At length Mr. Brandon, then box-book and house
keeper, hearing the discussion, came to thespot, and
insinuated the absolute necessity of Miss Billiu's de
parture, hinting something extremely ungallant
about a constable.
"Sir," said Miss Biflin, "I would give the world
to go, but I cannot without my friend."
'You cannot have any friend here to-night,
ma'am, said Mr. Brandon, for the doors are shut"
'What shall I do sir?" said the lady:
"If you will give mcyourarm, ma'am," said Bran
don, '-I'll see you down to the stage door, when you
can send for a ccach."
"Arm, sir? '-said the lady, "I wish I could, sir;
but I have got no arms."
"Dear me, ma'am," said the box-keeper, "how
very odd! However, ma'am, if you get upon your
legs, I will take every care of you."
I have not cot any lees, sir." said Miss Ttif-
fin.
This entirely puzzled Mr. Brandon, who professed
himself much astonished at the intelligence; and had
not Miss Biffin's faithful friend arrived just at that
moment via the coach door, it is impossible to im
agine what would have happened.
Her intended, who was perfectly alive to all the
peculiarities of his beloved, ended the affair in a mo
ment, by bundling her up, lifting her from her seat,
as C:usar did, "with decency," and carrying her off
upon his shoulder, as a butcher's hoy would tratis
jiort a fillit of veal in his stay.
From Willmer Smith's l.i rerjiool Timet of October 3.
Dkeapfui. SnirwuECK Thee Hundred Lives
Lost. We regret to have to record some scanty
particulars of one of the most disastrous shipwrecks
caused by the late gale. We refer to the total loss
of the ship Annie Jane, Capt Mason, bound from
Liverpool to Quebec with goods and passengers.
This really fine ship left the Mersey on the 9th of
bepleinoer, and, about thirty hours after bcr de
parture, was spoken offthe northwest coast of Ire
land. During the prevailing violent gales, how
ever, she was dismasted, and was totally I6st on the
night of September 28th on Barra Island. Upwards
of 300 of the passengers and crew have perished.
From a letter received by the ownei-s from the
captain, we learn that during the succession of
heavy gales he was drifted as far north as kit 00,
and that on the above night, with a strong wester
ly gale, he was not able to clear the land on either
tack. In five minutes after she struck, the ship
was dashed to atoms, and only 102 of the whole
complement of crew and passengers saved.
1 tie captain had sent by another conveyance a
list of those rescued, which has not yet come to
hand. About six hours after the melancholy cati
strophe, the captain was washed ashore on a part
of the poop deck, very much bruised, but fortunate
ly he is at present, to a crreat extent, recovered.
and has made arrangements for fending the sur
vivors to the main land.
The islanders have been exceedingly kind to
them all, and are doing their best to save what por
tion of the wreck and cargo was washed ashore.
We find that this vessel was on her first voyage,
having been built at Quebec during the present
year. She was of 1204 tons register, had just been
classed at Lloyds for the highest grade for colonial
ships, and was in every respect a very superior
vessel. She had on board an exceedingly valuable
cargo,
JSP" Among tlie bills pas3cd on first reading in
the House, is one proposed by Mr. Thompson,
which sets tho first Thursday in April next, as the
day for election of Judges and Attorney Generals
by the people. The bill has yet to pass the Senate,
but we have but little fears of its final passage. As
we view this quostion, we believe they are doing
their duty. Paris Republic,
