HUMPHREY MARSHALL, orKv. SOLOMON O. HAVEN, of N. Y.' , /. MORRISON HARRIS, of Md. JACOB BROOM, Pcnn. Wash (KOTOS City, D. C., May lftth, ISfift. We publish to-day before putting it Into pamphlet form, the excellent speech of Hon. L. M. Cox, of Kentucky, which we own mend to the perusal of our readers. This speech, and also tho able speech of Hon. H. W. Hoffman of Maryland will be for sale in pamphlet form on Monday next. Our space is so completely occupied hy the truly able speech of Hon. Mr. Cox, that we have been compelled to limit our editorial matter. ** Entire Change oI Front." The Richmond Enquirer, of yesterday, re publishes, under the above head, a letter wi it ten by the Hon. A. H. H. Stuart, on the 18th of March, 1852, in response to on invitation to be present at the celebration of the anniver sary of Saint Patrick's day, in Philadelphia, and in which letter this gentleman compliment ed the Irish Immigrants to this country as 44 adapting themselves with facility to our in stitutions, rightly entering into their scope and spirit?becoming, in a word, thoroughly Amer icanized," &c., &c.,?and thereupon the de lighted youth of th? Enquirer is in ecstacfcs, and assails Mr. Stuart as guilty of* tergiversa tion, at if a gentleman who had not seen and felt the evils of foreignism in 1852 had no right to discover them, and to change his views I upon that discovery at any subsequent period ! When our Revolutionary fathers, in 1772, 1778, and 1774, complained of the unjust legis lation of the British Parliament towards them, and appealed to the King for redress, they pro fessed the highest loyalty to their sovereign, believing that it was no fault of hi*, but ratlnr of his bad adviser*, that the Colonies were op pressed; and yet, in July, !77f>, in that Decla ration of Independence whicli has immortal ized its author, and wh-Vii exalttd our nation above all others, they pronounced the King guilty of (very crime that could "define a ty rant I" This change in their opinions was wrought by an experience of about the same space of time which elapsed from March 1 S52 to the summer of 1856. It was no longer ago thatn the winter of 1848-'9, that the Democratic Assembly of the patriotic State of Virginia, resolved, that if the Congress of the United States should, in Eo lation of good faith, disregard the principles of the Missouri Compromise, then that patri otic State would resort to the " hist extremi ty " to wit : rebellion and disunion, to avoid the dire ca'amity resulting <Vom such " disre gard,"?and now the mouth-piece of thr.t same Virginia Democracy declares, rsubstanlialiy, that the American party arc abolitionist?, be cause they, forsooth, condemn that ' sectional agitation," which was created by the disre gard of that Compromise, the penalty for which "disregard,M six year; apo, ns de nounced by the Virgin! \ Democracy, would have been civil war! A half dozen years ago, one James Buchan an, now known, and in some parts admired, as " Old Squatter Sovereign," maintained that Congress had 44 unlimited and exclusive con trol over the question of slavery in the Terri tories j" and, moreover, he maintained that the Missouri Compromise above named (and for the apprehended disregard of which blood and thunder were threatened by the Virginia De mocracy, as before stated,) was 44 as sacred as a constitutional provision," and note this same old gentlemen considers the opposite doctrines, laid down by the assembly of wise men at Cin cinnati, composed mainly of the Buflalo Free soil Van Buren Democrats of the North, as the very " perfection of human reason." W c might indefinitely multiply examples of j changes in politioal opinion, were it necessary or proper to do so, to demonstrate the right of | gentlemen, to discover those evils in foreignism and demagoguism to-day, which they had not discovered on yesterday; and were we dispos ed to do it, perhaps we might cite examples of such changes, which it would be quite difficult for parties themselves to explain to the satis faction of a discriminating public. One in stance has just occurred to us, which (4| we hope We don't intrude !") with the permission of the Richmond Enquirer we will casually mention, to-wit: Not more than one hundred years ago, the Richmond Enquirer stated, if our memory serves us, that it teas of the opinion " at first," that the Kant&s-Xebraska bill contained the odious doctrine of 44 squatter sovereignty and again (if Ho not en"i U intimated, in pretty plain languqp, that the Cincinnati Convention mutt disavow that doctrine, or som thing like the " last extremity " would be the result! W e do not profess to quote lan guage, but simply to express ideat. Well, the Cincinnati Convention met ? it endorsed "squatter sovereignty"?proclaimed a general filibustering crusade in the Gulf of Mexico? bid defiance to all the world and " the rest of maukicd -placud the former advocate of "un limitod and exclusive Congressional power over slavery in the Territories " and the pret erit advocate of te/iatecer the Cincinnati Con vention meant, on the Irack?and the Rich mond Enquirer ?o instanti swore, that there was nothing like "squatter sovereignty" in the Kansas bill, and that Buchanan was a marvel lously proper man for President! Xow, in view of some of these things, and of many others, which at "a more convenient season" we may refer to, we humbly hope that tue Richmond Enquirer will permit gentlemen to tool' at the manifold e\ils of foreign immi gration, and domestic demagoguism, as they now present themselves, and if they find that th?y have not duly considered- them in the pes:, they may have the permission of that journal to examine them, and if they choose, 10 Cfvnib'it them in the future. Will the kind hcft'lfd youth >4 the Knquirf-r allow this priv ilege to the native-born soiis of the Old Do minion 'i Hon. A. K. ^Marshall and H. W. Davis. The ..pooi.,, ? of these two distinguished Arner ici.n lU-'ftibo: ? o1 the present Congress, delivered in th.> liou.-t! of Bcprcs"Watives last night., were by far the most biilliant oratorical effort? we have hai the pleasure of listening to during the session of th-1 nrosent Congress. The Hon. A. K. Marshall exposed the soph in try of tike Republican war-cry?" Slavery i?* sectional, and freedom national"?compared the American and Democratic platforms and deduced from this comparison the conclusions that the American platform was national ahd conservative, and that th?) Democratic wat sectional and national. He reviewed the prospects of the Presidential candi dates, and gave it as his deliberate opinion that Millard Fillmoro would be the successful candidate. Mr. Marshall claimed to be an American Demo crat, representing the true Democratic principles. He was followed by the Hon. Henry Winter Davis, in one of the most eloquent and powerful speeches we ever heard. He arraigned the sec tional Democratic party, and exposed its evil and disunion tendencies. He said the success of our government, the perpetuity of our institutions, de manded the absolute destruction of the Democratic party, and it was that which the North sought to destroy. He reviewed the course of this party in regard to the Missouri Compromise, and quoted against its present positions the records of Polk, Monroe, Douglas, and others. Mr. Davis pronounced an eloquent eulogium upon Mr. Fillmore, and appealed to the North and South to rally around and stand by the man who had, in iu the time of its direst trouble, given peace and repose to the country, and quelled the fell spirit of disunion North and South. He denounced the disunionists, and ridiculed the idea that there could be a peaceable disuuiou. Mr. D. pledged Maryland for Fillmore by a triumphant majority. We hope these two speeches will be spread be fore the American people. Let every American paper throughout the land lay them before their readers. Mr. Clayton. The Union states that Senator Bayard, of Dela ware, in a speech which he mude at Dover, on the 24th ult., announced that his colleague, Hon. John M. Clayton, would under no circumstances support either Fillmore or Fremont for the Presidency, and that the announcement was made with the entire approval of Mr. Clayton. Mr. Clayton, It will be remembered, was one of Gen. Taylor's Calinet. When Mr. Fillmore suc ceeded to the Presidency, the members of the Cabinet, of Gen. Taylor resigned their places, and Mr. Fillmore acccptrd their resignations. For this acceptance of a voluntary offer on their part, these gentlemen have ever since cherished a decided hostility to Mr. Fillmore. We may also state, because it is a historical fact, that previous to the death of General Taylor, Mr. Fillmore, then Vice President, was treated in a very shabby manner by every member of the Cab inet <;f Gen. Tuylor, with the exception of Mr. Col lamer. Nearly ah of them were aspirants for the Pieaidency, a id Gov. Seward persuaded them that Mr. Fillmore jvas nlso an aspirant for the same of fice. Hence thay c'.^rmlned to destroy Mr. Fill , more, If possible, as their most formidable com f pc titer. ! Bat 1 he fkstmtting angel intervened, and in one ni^htji pr?ed 1 Itt,V d.'struetfvpness in the bud. They reiiv.l to private lifi?, f;od the major portion of them to igi oble obscurity. Under tho title of "the Galphins," their memory is not particularly fragrant In the nostrils of th:> American people. I They retired, and Fillmore ascended the Presi dential chair, and .?%> administered the government a* to command the admiration of his country and the world. And now * powerful party have again presented him for tho same office, with the fullest confidence that his eminent fitness for the station must ensure his election, in spite of the opposition of the Galphin?, the Filibusters and the Abolition ista. I Tni Intklligknckr.?The Baltimore American of this morning has the following allusion to the Aiittonal Intelligencer: PearepTuruT pPP"??"fe of the ]etten of Senators . , . rati:, it has been asserted and reite . the old, coritwrvutir., WhlK In . fow days follow in the same track, bv declaring its ore noTb^n M'I nan a"d Br^''nridge. We have not been able to ascertain tho true character of tification which such an announcement would rive to the conservative Whigs of Marvlanrt the whole Union will be spared them, 'ildeed we hope to have more pleasing record* to make in the future, and the most gratifying of them would be tb^ open and able advocacy of Mr. Fill more by our old and esteemed contemporary of the Nnttonal Intelligencer. We presume the Intelligencer will wait until the decision of the National Whig Convention in Sep tember, before it takes decided ground 00 the Pres idential question. It may not be generally known that tho "leader " of the London Times Is telegraphed, every morn ing, to all the principal towns of England, and, being written out in Urge letters and affixed to a olletin board, is posted In the public Exchange. At Glasgow, Liverpool, Manchester, and scores of o bor placas of lesser magnitude, crowds of mer chant*, and other influential men may be seen ??riy in the day, thronging around these boards ?nd perusing the " leader." Lir? or Ma,i aao Fju mo?b ? On the 16th iwt, Wauaer, McKim* k Co.* of Buffalo, will publish a Life of Millard FDliu?>r*k "by W. L. Barre, of Een tucky. It will form %u octavo volume of 400 pages. Mr. Bar re, the author, is reported to be a gentleman of fine library ability, and to have had access to every document aud paper necessary to make the work authentic In facta and reliable as a record of Mr. Fillmore's public life. We therefore anticipate a valuable worlr, and one that will be in great demand in every section of the country for the next three mouths. An agent for this work will soon call upon our citizens. The Hon. James Myerrf, late Democratic Lieut. Governor of Ohio, has declared his secession from the Buchanan party. We are not informed whether 1 be has gone to the Fillmore or tt> the F remont party. The Cincinuati Commercial says, 44 his de fection, wherever he may have gone, will be a stun niug blow to the Buchauan interest in the north west, where his influence is very considerable. The Columbus (Ohio) State Journal says, that A. 8. Dickey, Esq., of Greenfield, Highland county, one of the ablest lawyers in Southern Ohio, has left the ranks of the Democracy, and has declared his intention to support Fremont and Dayton for the Presidency and Vice Presidency of the 1 nited States. Mr. Dickey will take the stump, and tell the people the reasons that have induced him to take thifl step. Kentucky Election. The Louisville Journal o( August 5th thus refers to the election in that State : 44 We are called upon to chronicle an unparal leled victory of the American party in the city and county election yesterday. The result, fo far as heard from, shows .a gain upon the American ma jority la^t year of Jive hundred and nineteen vote*. There was by no means a full American vote brought out either in the city or jn the county. Fiarly in the day it was ascertained that the Amer ican ticket wus so far ahead that our opponents would never be able to catch up, and there was no effort made to bring up a full American vote. 14 the gains in the city of Louisville a?d coujity of Jefferson are sufficient to indicate a gain of one thousand votes for F'illmore and Donelson over the American majority last year. 11 Iu all the districts heard from, wherever a party contest has been made, there have been large gains for the American ticket. In many portions of the State there was no party content. 4< We can give every assurance to our friends throughout the whole Union that Kentucky is nil right for F'illmore and Donelson. John At. Bolts in the Field. The Hon. John M. Bottu, of Virginia ia working manfully for Fillmore and Donelson. Having been Invited to attend the recent monster demonstration in Brooklyn, New York, he sent the committee of invitation the following cheering note : 44 Richmond, July 22, 1856. " Dkar Sin: Yours of the 12th arrived duting mv absence from home, and did not reach me in time even to give you a suitable reply to your in vitation to addreps the pi^s irjeetitig in Brooklvn on Thursday evening next. I received from a por tion of the people of Brooklyn, last winter, such a manifestation of respect and confidence, a? laid me under everlasting obligations to them, and it would give me unfeigned gratification to comply with any demand they might make upon my time or ser vices, where a compliance would be possible, but iu this case it would ^e entirely out of inv power I shall have as much to do at home as I fcan well attend to, for we mean to go into the fight in oam est. I think the Whig and American parties in this State are pretty thoroughly united upon Mr. Fillmore, and if we can bring the entire vote of those two parties to the polls in November, there c annot be a doubt of our carrying the State trium phantly. Whether we do carry it or not, depends in a very large degree upon what may at that time appear to be the prospects of Mr. Fillmore in the Northern Btateo. It. thorefore, becomes his friends throughout the North to exef-t all their energies to place him in a position that will lead his friends in the South to entertain strong hopes of his ulti mate success. That done, we shall make a gallant fight for him, not only in Virginia, but throughout the Southern States. 44 With every wish for the success of our cause, and what I know to be the true cause of the Union and the Constitution, I am, respectfully, your obe dient servant, "JOHN M. BOTTS." Great Fillmore Meeting in Alabama. The Montgomery (Alabama) Mail furnishes the following particulars of a grand Fillmore and Don elson demonstration, which took place in that State on the 28d ultimo: Four thousand persons assembled at the camp ground, near Salem, in Russell county, on Wed nesday, the 2Sd instant, where previous announce ments had informed them that there would bo held a Fillmore aud Donelson Mass Meeting and Barbecue, and tViat free discussion would be inri ted. At a few minutes before eleven o'clock, the meet ing was organized by calling to tho chair, on the part of the friends of Fillmore and Donelson, the Hon. James Abercrombie, and on the part of the Democrats, Thomas Ward, Esq. The object of the meeting being explained, the order of speaking vas announced as follows: A Democratic speaker to open the discussion in a speech of opo hour and a half, to be replied to in a speech of tho same length. After dinner, another speaker ou the same side as tho first, with the same time, and to be replied to, each having the same time. Jamo* L. Pugh was then introduced on the part of his friends to adroeatc the claims of Mr. Bu chanan. At the clo?e of his speech the Hon. Henry W. Hilliard ras introduced. He was greeted by the friends of F'illmoro with enthusiastic applause. At the.close of his speech dinner was announced, and a dinner it was. One hundred carcaaes had been barbecued, old ham, bread and vegetables in pro fusion, prepared in elegant style and served up on a double line of tables about eighty yards in length. The ladies contributed largely in furnishing the good things with which these tables were plenti fully supplied. They deserve the highest praise for the interest they took in the glorious cau.^p of Fillmore, the Constitution, and the rights of the South. We must not omit to state that not less than 1,500 pounds of cake had been produced by them and spread on the tables from one end to the other. One of these cakes weighed 170 pounds, and an other 110 pounds. These had beautiful flags sus pended to a staff whieh was settled in esoh cake. There were not less than 1,500 ladies in attendance to grace the occasion with their presence. Dinner over, the stand was again occupied by David Clopton, In a pretty speech of one hour and a half, after which the Hon.W. P. Chilton enchain ed the audience during the time allowed him, and shout upon shout went up ever and anon as he proceeded, for Fillmore and Donelson. This, perhaps, is not the place to speak at length on the speeches delivered by these four gentlemen. We will, therefore, only say that Mr. Hilliard nnd Judge Chilton fully met and vanquished the posi j tions assumed by the two other speakers, and vin dicated Mr Fillmore from all the slanders with which he was assailed. They made excellent and effective speeches, the fruits of which will be felt and seen for many days to come. At the close of Judge Chilton's speech the meet ing adjourned to meet again on the public square, in the village, at night At the appointed time a large concourse again assembled?fires were raised at different points in the streets for the conveni ence of the speakers and the crowd. Everything being ready, Col. Thos. A. W?tt* commenced and made ooe of bis happiest efforts. He wss a little interrupted at one time by a sham fight which some Buchananites got up for the purpose of dis tracting the meeting. The Fillmorlans, however, were posted, and the sham fight proved a brilliant failure At the conclusion of Colonel Wstt's speech, B. II. Baker was loudly callwd for# He appeared and made a speech, which was received with great applause. The meeting then dispersed. Thus passed oflF a day the like of which we hare never witnessed in this section of the State before, and will be jovfulljr remembered by the friendB of Fillmore and Donelaou in this region. We have omitted to mention at the proper place that a splendid band of music was brought up from Columbus by our friends there, and enlivened the day and night with their splendid performance. Erastus Ilrooks In Faneuil Hall. We copy from the Boston Ledger the following sketch of the remarks of Erastus Brooks, at the Great American meeting in Faneuil Hall, on Mou day last: Hon. Erastus Brooks was next introduced, as the intimate personal friend of Millard Fillmore, fCheers were given for Mr. Brooks and for the New York Express.] Mr. Brooks said that he was in Faneuil Hall for the first time, and was there to defend his honored friend, who, accord ing to the customs of the canvass, could not appear t? speak for himself. He was proud to say that ho was a native of what was Massachusetts, but now is Maine. He was proud to call himself a New Englander. The great grandfather of Millard ' Fillmore was born in Boston, and now sleeps in New England. He was a man who possessed what we used to call gumption. Mr. Fillmore's lather was bom in Vermont, and tho bones of his great grandmother lie in the State of Connecticut. Now, who is Millard Fillmore? He is a man who, in early life, was a pioneer, for, in New York, where he located in youth, the country was almost a wilderness. Mr. Brooks then reviewed the early career of Mr. Fillmoic, proving that he in a self-made man and patriot. 1 wo years ago, said Mr. Brooks, tlio Americans were called tho dark-lantern party, and the party of u 8am. Sam is here to-night, and has grown up from boyhood to age, strong and vigorous. (.The Roxbury H Dunne Club, ncmboring several hundreds, entered the hall at tliis time, bearing flags and banners. They were received with great cheering.] Mr. Brooks then proceeded to give his reasons for supporting Fillmore, whom he expected to see inaugurated as President on the 4th oi March next. Fiist, he said he had been told in New Y ork that Massachusetts was nowhere for Fill more. They would not think so, he said, if they were present to-night, lie did not believe that Massachusetts would ever prove recreant to the Union and the Constitution. He had learned his politics in the school of Webster and Clay, and they were lor 44 the country and nothing but the country.' The men of Massachusetts had been taught in the same school, und never would forget their lessons. He quoted from a speech of Daniel Webster's his entire endorsement of the political acts of Mr. Fillmore ; also from Mr. Clay, who said that Mr. Fillmore had been tried and never fo^nt} wanting. He had yet to learn whpre aught has or can be s&id against Millard Fillmore, and he would ask those Fremont men pr. sent, who had found fault with the remarks of the speakers preceding him, if they could find anything against Mr. Fill more. At the North, Mr, Fillmore is called a pro-sin ve ry man, and he had read, to-day, in a Southern pupcr, that Fillmore is an Abolitionist. Some of those people who have faces of brass, have called him a doughface, but where is the proof? He is an American, and such a man does not suit these people. [Cheers.] Mr. Fillmpre has bepa in ail things a just man to the North) he has been just to the whole country. When he was first called to preside over the Senate, it was believed that the Senators had a right to call each other to order. This was the opinion of Mr. Calhoun; but Mr. Fillmore said it was a custom 44 more honored in the breach than in tho observance," and he an nounced that in the futyre he should, a^ the Bre eding ofycer, rusurve that right to himself. If'he had been the presiding officer of the Senate during the past six months, he believed that we should not have had the disgraceful scenes which have been enacted there. This was a single act of his, and this, and other acts, showed that he was not a vncillafi"g man, but would enforce the laws of the country. It was him that signed the Compro? miso act, after he had consulted t?ie highest au thorities?the living and the dead?Judge Storv Judge McLean, and others, and had found the act constitutional. He enforced this law. [Hisses I He would say to those gentlemen who hiss that they are but hissing a decision of the United States Supreme Court and the Constitution of the country from which he quoted. They wpro hissing the great men of Massachusetts and the patriots of the Revolution. Where do I get my free speech? I get In the constitution, from whence wc sret rights of a free press, but wh*rfe <}0 my lHeQds on the right oi the hall get the right to buy Sharpe s rifles to send to Kansas? [Great cheer ing, villi cries of i4 They are afraid to use them."] Ho did n<^t wish to create any mirth, but these men did remind him of the "King of France "&c To return to the acts of Mr. Fillmore, he enforced the law when a gang of counterfeiters located on Beaver Island, and defied the laws of the United States, lie enforced the law when a distinguished General, who acted heroically in Mexico, got up a filibustering expedition. He had that General ar rested and tried before a tribunal of his peers. Other acts, of a similar character, were quoted in support of Mr Fillmore's enforcement or constitu tional law. He had acted with patriotism and hu man,ty, knowing no North and nY> South, and he defied tho Republicans or Democrats to show good a record for their candidates. Mr. Fillmore did sign the fugitive slave law, aud he enforced it but it was not fair to leave his record there All the foreign territory that came into the Union undec his administration came in as free crri'orv Immediately after his accession to the Presidency^ the whole frontier of the West and Southwest wm in an inflammable s*te, and he, on the instant, summoned Gen. Scott to find out what numbei of troops were necessary to save Mexico from the strong aim of Texas. Troops were sent, and by this means the country was saved from a civil war. Had Mr. Fillmore been President, we should not have J,ad the Kansas difficulties nor the repeal of the Missouri ( ompromise. The latter act was done over the graves of Daniel Webster and HenrvClay. He would not charge the South with having caused the repeal of the Missouri Compromise. It origi nated among New England men, such as Stephen A. Douglas and Franklin Pioroc. Many of the best men at the South opposed the repeal of this Com promise. Mr. Fillmore signed a law which was much more lenient in its effects as regards slaves than the law of 1798, which was supported by the Revolutionary patriots of New England. Mr. Brooks said that he was afraid that ho was wearying the audbnee. [Cries of "Go on."l Vel, if I must go on, I will come to the gist of it, and would ask, what are the qualifications of John C. Fremont for President? He did not know of any, except that he is called an anti-slavery man. He was nominated by a Convention where Mary land, one of whose sons devised the 41 stars and ?tripes, the flag of our country, was not repre sented. ' - f convention, where Virginia, Kentucky, North and South Carolina, and fifteen of our sovereign . tates *erc not represented. He belonged to no party that put sixteen stars upon its flag and blot ted out the other fifteen. He belonged to a party that would not see a single star polluted, but every one bright and honored. The convention that nominated Fremont was a sectional one, and he would not support its nominations. The con vention in New York, which adopted Fremont, was a fraud. But Fremont is called an anti-sla very man. Do we get anti-slavery men from South Carolina ? Fremont's record does not prove that we do. He had heard a clergyman recommend * remont for stealthily creeping into a house and "teahng sway a child who was the pride of her parents, and then getting a Catholic priest to msr rv him to this young child. Mr. Fremont has >een called the Pathfinder, because he had cross ed the Rocky Mountains. Scores of men had done the same thing before Fremont was born, and these men ought to be made Presidents as much as Fremont. Fremont had been found guilty on thirty charges of attempting to create mutiny in the army of the United States, and for these acts, perhaps, the Republicans, think him worthy of being made President, but he never would be until the skies fell. Id regard to Fremont's reoord as ananti-elav. ry rnaii, Mr. Brooks quoted Uis acts while lie held a scat in the Senate, lie fouud, bv the record* of the Senate, that Fremont had always voted with the ultra pro-slavery Senators of the South, mid in opposition to the anti-slavery sentiments of the North. Before the canvass is closed, you will get vour eyes open li regard to the anti-slavery record of Fremont. (A voice. "I'll bet you will. ) [Cheers.] There has been a time when the sky looked portentous and gloomy, but the clouds are passing away. Our cause is just, and will be tri umphant, and he believed that Masaach isetts would be found right when the time comes to vote. Between Buchanan and Fremont, (8cylla and Cha ry bdis,) the Americans would steer, and he could see the ship of State sailing in a clear ocean be yond. Mr. Brooks closed by repeating Longfel low's poem, "Sail on, thou Ship of State." When he eat down, the audience gave him sev eral successive rounds of cheers. Miss Saykh'b Marriage.?The following de scription of Doctress Sayer's marriage was written by an eye witness: "We were among the few assembled at the resi dence of the bridv'i father, in Warwick, Orange county, July 27th, to witness the marriage of Mr. John W. Hasbrouck, editor of the Whig Press, Middletown, New York, with Drs. Lydia Sayer, editor of the Sybil, of the same place. The bride was dressed in the reform coetume: skirt of white India book, with pants of white satin, a basque of brocade silk, (color ashes of roses,) trimmed with deep lace. No ornaments except a simple breast pin. The ceremony was performed by themselves. The bride ignored that part of the accustomed marriage ceremony which demands of woman un due subjection and obedience, yet promised equally with the groom to stand true to his side in all the duties of lif;; each appealing to the other for their approval, and each consenting to the terras adopt ed by themselves. A short and, very appropriate prayer was offered by the elder brother of the bride. The beauty and simplicity of the ceremony made a favorable impression on all present, and each felt that the bride had added a new laurel in favor of truth and reform." A letter from Tampa Bay, Florida, dated July 21, says: " The yellow fever is raging very bad at Key West, so all intercourse with that place is for bidden. We have heard of eight deaths, and tho fever was of a very malignant description. It was taken to Key Weat in a tVuit boat from Havana, and spread with great rapidity, every case proving fatal. It is called the African fever, being even wow than the yellow fever." Grkat Salk or Mules.?R,. B. Groom, Esq., of Clarke county, sold R fcw days ago 109 head of two-year o\d mules, at fl75 eaoh. This is the best sale of mules, the number considered, that was ever made In the United StateB.?Lou. Jour. A New Kind o* Wheat.?The Detroit (Mich.) Tribune of the 24th ultimo says : " Jonathan Dayton, of Grand Blanc, has grown this year some Pitliusian wheat, from seed pro cured by the Patent Office from the Island of Ivaca, in tho M editerranean Sea, east of the coast of Spain. The berry is large, weighing seventy pounds to the bushel. The spikes are large, bearing an enor mous iieard.
