Telegraph to Evassvtlle. Wc were in
formed several days ago by a gentleman from
Leavenworth, that the workmen were very bu
sy on the Telegraph line to St. Louis, and that
it was contemplated it would pass through this
city and an agency be established here. This
morning we have received a communication
from one of our citizens, which induces us to
believe that an effort will be made to secure to
our citizens the benefits of telegraphic com
munication with the East and West, and we
hope our citizens will not permit the opportu
nity to pass by. The amount of stock neces
sary to secure an agency here will be trifling in
comparison to the benefits to be derived, and
wc are sutjsfied will be subscribed at once.
We must strike while we have the opportu
nity.' ;
To the Editor of the Evansville Journal:
Sir I have this morning received a commu
nication stating that Mr. Ilenry O'Reilly would
visit our Town about the 28th of this month
for the purpose of making an examination of a
Telegraphic line from this place to St. Louis,
with an agency here.
The importance of the undertaking to every
Merchant and Farmer of our country cannot
for a moment be questioned, and I trust that
they will not, for lack of energy, permit this
great work to fall through.
Yours, &c. C.
CO" 1 h Ohio State Journal has received a
telegraphic notice from Pittsburgh, dated 17th
inst. Hi o'clock, A. M., which states that
. "A copy of the New Orleans Delta has been
received, containing flic news that ARTICLES
OF TEACE have been signed by Mr. Trist and
the Mexican Commissioners! This cannot
be correct. We have New Orleans papers as
.late as the 10th and Louisville papers of ,the
2lst, and no mention of a peace is made in
meetings to take into consideration the terms
proffered by our Government through Mr.
Trist. Nothing had transpired in relation to
what was done. The next intelligence from
Mexico will be awaited with anxiety, as it
will probably bring us the result of the delib
erations of the commissioners.
CCf The Diario del Gobicrno, a paper pub
lished inthe City of Mexico, of the dateof 27th
August, admits that result of the lute battles
was most unfortunate for the nation, but as
cribes the defeat of the Mexicans entirely to
the marked disobedience of Gen. Valencia.
The Diario estimates our loss at one thousand
and seventy, and that of the Mexicans at Five
Thoubasd in killed, wounded and prisoners.
The correspondent of the N. O. Delta learns
from intercepted letters in possession of our
army, written on the evening of the battle
the Mexican loss to be 5,000 in killed and
wounded; and by them also learns that out of
JU.U00 men they had but between 6 and S.000
men left and they in confusion, without lead
ersthe balance killed, wounded, prisoners,
or totally dispersed.
(XTs-Thc Louisville Journal says that Cap
tain Thilip Kearney, who had his left arm shot
ofT in the recent battles, is one of the most en
thusiastic of soldiers. He raised a company
of cavalry, in doing which he expended of his
own private means over three thousand dol
lars, and marched them to Mexico." His men
and his horses were picked the former being
true blue, and the latter gray This company
was raised in this State, at Indianapolis, and
the horses procured in the neighborhood of
Terre-IIaute.
Vermont Election. The returns from the
whole State are not yet received. There has
been no choice of Governor, the constitution
requiring a majority of all the votes given.
The Legislature will be Whig by a decreased
majority. The New York Tribune says: ''Ruin
find Locofecoism formed an alliance in many
towns with a view to repeal the license law,
while the liberty party and some exciting local
questions had the effect to divert some Whig
votes into the wrong channel."
OCT A correspondent of the New York Her
ald writes from Washington that the President
intends recommending extensive sales of the
U. S. copper lands for cash for war expeuses.
Between this and some other expedient the ta
riff bill of "46 infly be paved another year. But
nothing will save it beyond the prr'-ent Con
re. h will have to bo modified.
BUSINESS PROSPECTS.
The jobbers and retail dealers of our city are
now opening their fall and winter stocks of
goods, and we are rather below the truth than
otherwise, in stating the amount of goods in
our market to be three times greater this year
than at any former season. This is obvious to
all who visit the stores, or even take a glimps
at the crowded side walks, fdled with boxes
and packages, and the counters and shelves
stored with admirable and most attractive as
sortments. Besides our old merchants there
are many new comers, with entire new stocks,
preparing for a brisk competition with those
before thein as well as those yet to come. All
this gives token of a largo and prosperous fall
business. There is no longer any reason
why country merchants and traders should con
tinue to visir Louisville and Cincinnati to re
plenish their stocks, when they can do so here
at abetter advantage and at the cost of less time
and risk. The amount of goods brought to
this market this season, as we are assured by
the merchants themsel ves.is sufficient to supply
a very large portion of the interior, and the ad
vantages winch our merchants possess over
those of larger cities in cheapness of livin;
rents, and expenses generally, will enable them
to sell lower than the same goods can be pur
chased in those cities. These are facts which
every one visiting this market for the purpose
of purchasing will be compelled to admit, and
when we add the justice of keeping the money
at home which has heretofore gone to en
rich the cities of other States, to say nothing
of the benefit to be derived by the building up
of a home market for the surplus products of
the country, we think we may safely claim a
larger share of trade than has heretofore fallen
to us.
CQ We received on yesterday from our
young friends Messrs. E. & W. L-ewis, a pres
ent of a most splendid and costly vest patern
with trimmings to match. It is the most beau
tiful article of the kind we ever eaw, and we
think it will become us well.
By the way, we may as well mention the fact
that the Messrs. Lewis are opening not only
one of the largest but one of richest assort
ments ever offered in our city, and they are
not afraid to say so. See their advertisements.
CT Messrs. J. II. Machee & Co., have re
tired from the retail trade and will hereafter
confine themselves entirely to the jobbing bu
siness. Their stock 13 unusually lare and se
lected with great care expressly for this section.
We call the attention of purchasers to their
advertisement.

LtiGH, who lias just arrived from the eastern
cities with a large and splendid stock of dry
I goods, &c. He is one of our most accommo
j dating merchants, takes great pleasure in show-
rug his goods and will sell as low as can be pur
chased in the market.
CCTAn Iowa paper comes out in favor of a
railroad from Keokuk to DuBuque to "ail in
carrying of the interior of that State." Only
! the "interior" The Iowa chap don't go quite
i as far as some of our papers. The Vinccnucs,

we could mention, have came out for a railroad

Another Movement. The NewYork Com
mercial says that a scheme is projected by some
Texas politicians to effect a sale of the Texas
public landstothcUnitedSlates irt'fA the bur
den of her delta attached, of course, inasmuch
as, if we buy the lands, wc must take them
under the encumbrance upon them they be
ing pledged for the payment of the public debt:
while no good would result from the sale, to
any body, save the "greedy speculators"' whom
it would enrich.
C3" A Vera Cruz correspondent of the New
Orleans Delta, speaking of Coin. Terry, says:
I received news here a few days ago, that on
Com. Perry's return to the squadron at Alvar
ado, he found that two sailors belonging to the
squadron had been killed on shore by some
Mexicans; without, however, waiting to enter
into any explanation with tha authorities on
the subject, the commodore immediately went
to work, had the alcalde arrested, and inform
ed him that he would bo held responsible for
all such acts in future; but, in the present in
stance, he wo-dd merely require the payment
of S2.000, for the use of the widows of the
two'men who were murdered. It is needless
to add that the money vas immediately pai l
over, and will be forwarded at once to its des
tination. Com. P., being informed that the
jail had been 'broken into and a quantity of
cotton some 50 bales which was seized at,
or a short time previous to the time of the
bombardment of this port, was taken out of
the stores belonging to the United States Gov
ernment, immediately sent word to the author

The cotton wnsoon produced and shipped for' of the certify . which was given to Mr. Jatk
Vfa Cn,z- sou. L. F.
fX3S. of T. Grand Division. We find;
the following in the Quiucy Whig. We hope
for the good of the cause there is some mistake
in this matter, and that the charges here made
will prove to oe without foundation: .
A writer in the Philadelphia Bee, over the
signature of "X." is writing numbers for that
paper, in which he professes to be acquainted
with certain iniquities practised in the Nation
al Division of the Sons of Temperance in ap
propriating something like 610 to 818,000 an
nually, for purposes with which the subordinate
Divisions of the country are not acquainted.
A portion of the fund is stated to have been
squandered in salaries for officers of the Grand
Division, contrary to the objects and intention
of Order. The writer alleges that "corruption
exists iu the. Order that there is a deficiency
iii the treasury, not accounted for by the lame
reports of the officers." That the Division i3
"governed by a clique, so well contrived that
thev can operate in andcontroll the whole Or
der throughout the United States," and pro
mises in a future number to reveal the names
of this clique. He says he is one of the oldest
members of the Order has never ceased to la
bor for its good and advancement has been
present at almost every nieeeting of the Grand
Division and has "witnessed the extravagant
waste of money; and the frauds practised upon
the Order, with pain and regret" and one ob
ject in writing the numbers, he says, is to "cau
tion brothers of the danger that a canker worm
is in our midst, praying upon our vital parts."
If there is no foundation for these charges,
the Grand Division owes it to its own charac
ter to the subordinate Divisions and partic
ularly to the cause of Temperance to make it
manifest at once, There should be ho myste
ry or secrecy among brethren in relation totlie
disposal of any fund in which the whole Order
is interested all should be as open as the day
lest doubts arise, and thus impediments
thrown in the way of the onward progress of
the Order and the Temperance Cause with
which it is connected.
CC5"Thc following brutal attack upon Ilenry
Clay, is from a vile fcheet published at Fort
Madison, Iowa. We publish it to show the
extent to which political malice can Je car
ried by the mercenary starveling:; that hang
upon the skirts of the locofoco partv. Ilenry
Clay is now a private citizen in .'vpctation
of no office and is certainly beyond the reach
of such creatures as this Iowa libeller who,
with all his sanctimonious professions of puri
ty and morality, is undoubtedly one of the most
depraved of his class,. and who if. he had his
deserts would long since have been an inmate
of the Slate Ihuac located in his neighboi
hood. "And then might Ilenry Clay, well exclaim,
"My soul is wearied of life." Then let birn
know let him be assured that they are no
other than the just judgements of God overta
king him for his vices and iniquities. His com-
bauched by luxury and corruption. He is.
therefore, the author ol his own misery, bv hav
ing thrown away upon the vices and follies of
the world, that power of mind which God bad
bestowed upon him for nobler pufpo.-es.:'

An Ixtellxgext View of Mexican Affairs.
A correspondent of the London Morning
Chronicle, who writes from the citv of Mexico
under date of June 2Sth, remarks as fallows:
According to my eninion. we have no pros
pect of a speedy prace. The whol- length an I
breadth of the lend is, and will be, overrun with
baud. ; fhalf soldiers, half robbers, and the Amer
icans will yet have to make many heavy sacrifi
ces before they can attain dominion here, or even
an appearance of having their power acknowl
edged by the Mexicans. This retistence, the vis
inelricD, is the only ono of which the Mexican
is capable, but it is" a powerful one, and in it, he
is great. Not oiie of them has been induced to
join the Americans. They do not look upon the
Yankees with rage, but they keep entirely aloof
from them, theyevenadmire the courage of the
enemy in niarchingboldly into the very heart of
ujeir country, cut tney regard them as savages,
entirely devoid of all liner feelings. In fact, the
Mexicans consider that courage isquite excluded
to civilized minds, and is merely an ani
mal, and, therefore, an objectionable disposi
tion. A very clever caricature has boon published
and sold here during the last few tlnys, repre
senting Santa Anna laid upon a table of the
anatomical theatre, an enormous Yankee am
putating his second leg, while Polk applies
the ether apparatus; but instead of the sjongcs
containing the ether, you see a number of mon
ey begs marked three million of pecos.

IMPORTANT PUBLIC DOCUMENTS.. .
The Armistice Official Corrcspondence-
To the proper elucidation of the spirit with
which the recent armistice was entered into
between Gen. Scott and Santa Anna, we an
nex several important documents.
The following was the letter addressed by Gen.
Scott to Santa Anna' tendering an armistice:
Headquarters oe the Army U. S. America, ?
Coyoacan, August 21, 1847. )
To Hi3 Excellency the President nnd General-in-Chief
of the Republic of Mexico.
Sir Too much blood has already been shed
in this unnatural war between the two great
Republics of this continent. It is time that
the differences between them should be amica
bly and honorably settled, and it is known to
your Excellency that a commissioner on the
part of the the United States, clothed with full
powers to that end, is with this army. To en
able the two Republics to enter on negotia
tion, 1 am willing to sign, on reasonable terms,
a sliort armistice.
I shall wait with impatience until to
morrow morning for a direct answer to
this communication; but shall in the mean
time sieze and occupy such positions out
side of the capital as 1 may deem necessary to
the shelter and comfort of this army.
I have the honor to remain, with high consid
eration and respect, your Excellency's most
obedient Servant, Wisfjelb cott.
To this letter a reply was returned by the
Mexican Secretary of War, of which the fol
lowing is a hasty version :
Ministry of Wae and Marine, )
, Mexico, August 21, 1847.. J
To His Excellency Gen. Winfield Scott, Commander
- iii-Chiet" of the Army of the U. S. America.
Sir The undersigned, Minister of War and
Marine of the Government of the U. States of
Mexico, is instructed by his Excellency the
President, commander-in-chief, to reply to
your communication in which you propose to
enter into an armistice, with a view to avoid
the further shedding of blood between the two
great Republics of this continent, for the pur
pose of hearing the propositions which may be
made for this purpose by the commissioner of
his Excellency the President of the United
States of America, who is at the headquarters
of the American army.
It is certainly lamentable, that in conse
quence of the disregard of the rights of the
Mexican It public, the. fchedding of blood has
become inevitable between the first republics
of the American continent; and your Excellen
cy with great propriety qualifies this war as
unnatural, as well on account of its origin as
the antecedentsof two people identified by their
relations and their interests. The proposition
of an armistice to terminate this scanilal has
been received with pleasure by his Excellency
the President, commander-in.-cb.ief, as it will
enable the propositions tobe entertained which
the commissioner of the President of the Uni
ted States may make for the honorable termi
nation of the war. '
Accordingly, the President, commander-in-
chief, directs me to pay to your Excellency that
he accepts ths proposition to enter into an ar
mistice, and for tins object he has appointed
cnt at trie time and place which may be desig
nated.
His Excellency al so instructs me to commit
nicate lus satisfaction that the army of the U-
mted Mates should occupy convenient and fit
ting quarters, trusting nnd honing that they
vi in oe out oi reacii ot the hrc ot the Mexican
loruiications.
1 have the honor to be with high considera
tion and respect, your Excellency's most obe-
tueni sen ant, Alcohta
The same day Sonor.Pacheco, the Secretary
of State, issued the following summons for the
assembling of Congress: ;
Ministry of Internal and Foreios Rela
tions,
Mexico, August 21, 1847.
Mord Ercdlent Sir: All Mexicans, but es.
pcciallv the inhabitants of this capital, have
been witnesses to the. extraordinary exertions
which have been made by his Excellency the
Provisional President to collect au army capa
ble of meeting that of the United States, and
restoring the lustre of the arms of the Repub
lic. They are witnesses also that he has fought
uii iiurepuiuy, exposing nis own lite, until
the moment when the victory was lost and the
enemy was at the girtes of the capital.
In these circumstances, and when the nu
merous inhabitants of Mexico have made evprv
kind of sacrifice to carry on the war, it is one of
ttie most imperious duties of the First Magis
trate to prevent the calamities inseparable from
an assault, and to avoid all the consequences
of a violent occupation of the city. To this
end, and in the exercise of his constitutional
powers, and in conformity with the wishes of
Congress communicated tolumon the ICth Ju
ly last, he has determined to hear the nrooosi
tions which Mr. Nicholas Trist has to make on
the part of the United States, and to consent
that in the meantime there shall be a suspen
sion of hostiiitieg.
As this question is of the utmost interest to
the Republic, his Excellency desires that the
National Congress should take their annroD.i-
aie pari, ana accoraingiy ne directs me to no
tify your fcxrellencv that you may take meas-
ures mngenuy to summon tne jjeputies to as
semble at 12 o clock to-elay.
1 reiterate the assurances of my distinguished
consideration. . iiou and ijioerty.
Jofe Ramos Pacheco,
CT" An officer, writing from , Tacubaya,
slates that Gen. Scott did not ask a surrender
of the city of Mexico, as it was virtually under
his control; and to have taken the army into it,
would have been productive of some trouble,
as it would be next to. impossible to control
the troops. 1 '

What Next? A. man in Cincinnati has
lately discovered a plan by which he says he
can send a person from that place to New York,
let him transact business and get him back
again in less than 2 hours and a half. He can
by the same discovery transact four hundred
tons of merchandise from Cincinnati to New
York, at a cost not exceeding the usual rate,
and all in 10 hours! The plan is to stretch 4
wires, two for a platform for a vehicle to run
over, and two overhead to steady thelightning
vehicle, and then propel by electricity. If this
can be done, railroads vill be at least one age
behind the times! On'- think of travelling
with the speed of lightning instead of the old
fashioned and rediculously slow way of rail
roads'. " "
The Thiko is a Nutshell. Mr. D. Tratt of
Alabama, thus briefly illustrates the way in
which manufactories make cities: -f
"Cotton is certainly the article with which
we ought to commence manufacturing that will
bring all the other branches along in regular
train. Should $1,000,000 capital be invested
in a village in manufacturing cotton, it would
employ only about 1,600 operatives; those be
longing to their families who did not labor in
the factories, would make ther number amount
to 2,000. This would bring in 1,500 more in
other small branches, , such as merchants, ma
chinists, boot and shoe makers, tanners, sad
dlers and harness makers, silversmiths, tinners,
paper makers, &c. In fact, almost every branch
of manufacturing would follow. Thus it ap
pears that fcl, 000,000 capital invested in cot
ton manufacturing would give employment to
3,500 persons; but this is not all. The vil
lage of 3,500 would create a market for all the
provisions made to spare from 10 to 20 miles
around, encouragingand enriching all our small,
industrious farmers. In would give a healthy
aspect to business through the whole neighbor
hood. Money would circulate freely during
the whole year; whereas now we think we are
doing pretty well if we get a sight of or handle
a little, once during the year, or at most a small
portion of the year."
