year, by persons from Texas, for the purpose of
knowing whether the Government were preparing
to acknowledge the independence of Texas. The
answer given to the application was, that the gene
ral principle of the Government was to acknow
ledge every State that was de facta independent,
but under the circumstances at present existing
with respect to Texas, they were not prepared to
t ; ssiid that 1 100 horses belonging to a Spanish
Regiment which had been quartered at Funen, an adopt that course with respect to it. As it was
islaDd of Denmark in the Baltic feea, could not be
rot off by the Spanish Commander when compelled

to take off the bridles and let them go free. So soon
as this was don,e, they charged each other in squad
rons often or twenty together, striking with their
fore feet, and biting and tearing each jother with
most ferocious rage, and trampling those that were
beaten down, till the shore in the course of a quar
ter of an hour, was strewn with the dead and disa
bled ; after the last boats quit the beach, the few
horses that remained were seen still engaged in the
dreadful work of mutual destruction.
A pamphlet Almanac, issued in the city of New
York, by the anti-slavery society, is in circulation.
A copy of this work was sent to this Office, under
the guise of a newspaper wrapper, and we have no
doubt attempts will be made to circulate them in
the Southern States. We give this notice to put
Postmasters and others on their guard. It has a
yellow cover, and is filled with devices and reading
matter, calculated to produce infinite mischief.
We shall retain the copy for a few days, that those
of our citizens who desire, to do ,$0,. may inspect
this specimen of Abolition Fanaticism and misrep
resentation. . - -

The chamber of Deputies, of France, were pro
ceeding in the trial of the persons engaged in the
late insurrectionary movements in Paris. It was
repeated that two had been sentenced to death.
A Paris paper says : "On the 6th of December
1815, towards 7 o'clock in the morning, the body of
Marshal Nevy, who was judicially murdered at the
eate of the Luxemburg, was removed from the
place of execution. Workmen were employed in

They are an insult to the common sense of the
most illiterate, and justly merit the sovereign con
tempt of an intelligent people. A Bank "establish
two separate and distinct currencies" "gold and
silver" for one class of the community, and "Bank
notes" for the other!!- Its absurdity is too plain
for comment. s
For the present, let us admit, for argument sake,
that the Sub-Treasury will become a Bank. Will
it not pay its notes, like other Banks, to all indivi
duals without distinction, the office-holders as well
as the people in general? But this objection
comes with a very ill grace from the Whigs, who
have exerted all their might and main, during the
last nine years, to establish a great Bank. One
would suppose that this Sub-Treasury Bank was
the very thing the Whigs wish for.
But not so ; the officers would be too responsible ;
they would be liable to corporal punishment, and to
forfeit their private property. Besides, this Bank
would be, in general, too much under the restraint
of the Laws and Constitution, to meet the approba
tion of the Whigs. Thev are making a violent
gold and silver only as a legal tender in the pay
ment of debts ; hut if the States' choose to establish
other circulating mediums, it is. discretionary with
the people whether or not they will use them. Nq
law can compel them to use them: and to make
the SubjTreasury "establish" ."Bank notes for the
people," is perfectly" absurd, for ' this Tfvould make
the supporters of the Sub-Treasury do that which
they hold the Constitution does not empower them
to do, viz: to establish a Bank.
Mr. Editor: That any one may from a correct
opinion of the fitness or unfitness of a plan, it is
necessary that the arguments both for and against
it shall be placed before him. - .
All that can recommend the adoption of the com
mon School system has been said to the people,
andl therefore wish you to insert this communica
tion, which is an humble attempt to show the un
fitness and impracticability of the plan. 1 am op
posed to the system proposed, not because I disap
prove of common schools, but because l am a true
friend to the cause. .
The same reasons compel me to rejec,the plan
proposed, as ousht to have induced the;fneads of
internal improvement to "have rejected the wild
and impracticable schemes of improvement, adopt
ed Bv "the Legislature of this State In the.Seisi&ri
of 1818. Those schemes were splendid, and im
posing, when seen on paper, and all congratulated
themselves that soon every river in the State would
be opened and rendered daily, navigable n a But
practice, the great test of theories, proved bat not
a single scheme could be carried into operation.
Thus the projectors and supporters of the plan, af
ter spending'much money in the vain attempt of
execution, were compelled at last, withf much cha
grin and mortification, to witness its total failure.
But this was not all the miurv done, . u he con
fidence of the people was lost, which has placed
this State fifteen years behind the spirit of the age
in internal Improvement and won for her the unen
viable name of " Old Rip Van Winkle."
Is it lot, then, the part of wisdom, does , not our
own sal experience warn us, not to attempt any
public knprovement unless it is undoubtedly practi
cable ? The friends of common schools should be
ware lest their plans miscarry ; for the people are
a conspiracy a3 was ever attempted upon the pub
lic. If such be not the fact, let the "Register" give
up its informant, let him, .whoever he may be, -be j
branded as the libeller, and be held up for the fin
ger of scorn to point at. J Let us be informed as to
this foul attempt at fraud and Injustice. r
We find in a recent number of the National
Gazette, the following anecdote of the celebrated
New-Hampshire veteran:
'In 1777. ihe Legislature of New Hampshire unan-1
imooslv voted to Brigadier General Stark, "a complete
suit of clothes, becoming his rank,' etc. Certain friends
ol the gallant officer regretted that the compliment had
been paid in this shape, as it seemed to prove either that
the General was star natea or me legislature siarK
mad." - .
Were the old hero now living be would proba
bly be "stark mad" at such a "stark naked" story.
The anecdote, we suppose.' has no other founda
tion, than a proposition to make him a present
of a "suit ol clotnes becoming nis Tanic," wnicn
was rejected by his friends in the New-Hamp
shire Assembly. It was the fortune of Stark,
during the early part of the revolutionary strug
gle to be perpetually subject to an espionage of
the Legislature and ol Congress, that very much
annoyed him. His experience lii the French

could little brook the supervision of tfien whom he

never tooic any pains to conceal ms uispieusurtr.
The very hour in which the news of the
battle of Lexington rebched Starkl then at work
in his sawmill on the falls near the site where
the manufacturing" city of Amoskeag is now
building up he shut down the gates of his mill,
shouldered his musket, took three dollars in sil

The Foreign Monthly Review mentions that
a type founder. ot Clermont,; named Colson, baa
obtained a patent for .a new material. for print

composition of lead and nntjmony. -It is well
known that types cast from the latter soon becoma
worn, especially since the introduction .of steam
printing. CoUon asserts that the material is so
hard that types themselves will serve for punches
in striking matrices, and that it will last ten years
