States interests, and forthwith set about
yoverin'f the nature of the mystery. Tiiis

vernments—binding himself to send com

MOST VALUABLE INVENTION.—The ed-
*ho Albany Argus in speaking of
the Fair of the American Institute, lately
held in the city of New York, makes men
tion of a Portable Grist Mill, which was
exhibited there, by the inventor, (a gen
tleman of Bridgeport, Conn It embra*
ces one run of stone, and is turned by
horse power, and the inventor will war
rant that it will make as good flour as the
best mills of Rochester. One of these
portable mills, the cost of which is only
$110, with the use of two horses will
turn off 27 barrels of flour per day. An
other the cost of which is the trifle of $60,
with one horse, will turn off 13 barrel
per day. The constrnciion is simple, and
the machinery easily kept in order. A
mill of this description would be of almost
incalculable value in this extensive prairie
country of ours—particularly where water
privileges are scarce. The trifling ex
pense of such a mill, together with the
great and many conveniences which it af
fords, will, we hope, convince our farming
population of its vast usefulness, and in
duce them to provide themselves with it
without delay. Its weight is from five
hundred to one thousand pounds. We
heard it stated that a -gentleman of this
city intends to bring one out in the course
of next summer.—Miners' Express.
AMENDE HONORABLE.—The Paris corres
pondent of the National Intelligencer gives
the following incident as having occurred at a
large temperance meeting in the city of Nor
wich, England.
It is long sinco I have been more struck
with an amend honorable for inconsiderate cen
sure than that of the Bishop of Norwich to
Father Matthew, at the recent immense tem
perance gathering in the city of Norwich. The
prelate delivered a very earnest address in be
half of ihe cause. Let me quote the rest:
"And now, reverend sir, and friend from'
another island, allow me to greet you—(ad
dressing Father Matthew, who roue amidst en
thusiastic applause.) 1 meet yon not here as
a Roman Gatholic priest. PdifTer from your
creed, and I candidly and openly avow in your
presence, and before this great assembly, that
I am hostile to it. But, reverend sir, I meet
you herein a more noble and comprehensive
character—1 meet you here not as a priest,
but as a Christian brother. £The right rever
end prulate here crossed before the chairman,
and extended his hand to Father Matthew,
which was cordially grasped and shaken by
the latter, amidst the must deafening cheers.]
I meet yon, I repeat it, as a Christian brother,
upon neutral ground, where ul-l-denominations
of Christians may delight to visit and unitr
together in a commou and holy cause. [Hear
near.] I have watched your conduct, sir, for
many a year. Yes, sir, long since, as you may
remember, when I censured you in public—
nay, may I nit add, abused you 1 have
watched your proceedings. Those public re
ports, upon which I founded these proceedings,
1 subsequently discovered to be founded in
malignancy and falsehood. [Hear] There
suit was, sir, that I appealed to you as a Chris
tian anil as a man of lienor t-o l»* mo know re
ally bow the case stood. You answered me
most nobly anil honorably, and I believed you.
I abused you, sir, no more. 1 felt, sir, lhat
some apology was due from tne for the wrong
1 done vou, and here I am to receive you.
[Hear.]
THB TEXAS QUESTION.—The following
an extract of a letter from Washington to the
New Hampshire Patriot:
"The Texas question bids fair to agitate
the country soon, more than ever the Missou
ri question did. It is lo involve in its consid
eration not only our relations with ourselves
as individuals or States, but our relations wi
foreign powers. The discussion of the sub
ject at the coming session of Congress will be
warm, tf not angry—and it is more than prob
able that this great question will give rise to
new combinations of parlies. One thing may
be relied upon ihe administration is deter
mined to counteract the ridiculous designs of
England, and firevent their accomplishment—
and to effectually succeed, there is now said to
be but one course of policy advisable that is,
the annexation of Texas to this country."
POLAND AGAIN STRUGGLING FOK FREE­
DOM.—Poland
At least her people still hope. A London
letter writer remarks, llut the state of
Poland, however apparently helpless and
hopeless, has of late called forth an addi
tional feeling of sympathy. Her nation
ality appears to slumber ohly for a well
organized conspiracy has been discoved at
Warsaw, consisting of 3,000 persons,
whose object was to effect a revolution.—
About 300 have been arrested. May God
preserve them.

friends and customers, and the public in gene
ral, lhat he has refitted and repaired at much ex
pense and trouble, his large and commodious'Hotel

and all others who may favor him with a call. His
rooms are well furnished and warm and he has pro
cured servants who he guarantees shall be attentive

with the best the market will afford, and his terms
such as will be satisfactory to any gentleman who

warm stable, which will be fttrnished with horses,
carriages, sleighs, &e. &c.
This Hotel is situated convenieht to the Capitol,
with a good pavement connecting the two—and
but one door from the Post Office—and he flatters
himself that he will be able to accommodate his
friends and the public in a style of convenience and
comfort, equal if not superior to any hotlel in the
far west. He therefore, respectfull solicits a share
of Dublic patronage in his line of business.
