CITY OF EVANSVILLE:
THURSDAY NOVEMBER 11, .8147.
(E3"The Union of a late date announces
that General Taylor has applied for leave of
absence to return home, and will reach New
Oilcans about the 1st of December.
Used up again. No man was ever oftener
"med up" in the course of a life than the Ilcv.
John Newland Maffit. We remember at
leant a dozen instances in which his unfounded
pretensions to great learning, talents, and pi
ety have been completely exposed, and he
himself whittled down to his proper insignifi
cant dimensions; but never was even he made
to appear so email and contemptible as under
thecastigations bestowed upon him by the Lou
isville Journal, and Courier, on account of the
outrageous sentiments advanced by him in his
recent lectures, in that city, in defence of the
Mexican war. This time there is not "a grease
spot" of him left. If there was anythingof the
sort left by Prentice and Haldeman he himself
has wiped it out clean byabrief response to their
strictures, which he made in the Courier of
Saturday last. One example of his inconsisten
cy and folly will give a correct idea of the
whole . In one part of his article he says that
he does not and could not, consistently with
his principles and profession, approve of the
war, and in another that he would neither be
guilty of inculcating heterodox opinions, nor
of impuning the attributes of Jehovahby insist
ing that God has cither designed or ordained
the War!!! Thus taking the position that he,
as a christian minister, does not approve of
what God himself lias ordained !
Mr. Folk proscribing the friends of Gen.
Taylor. The Baltimore Patriot of the 2nd
inst. says: We have never doubted that the
Administration were deadly hostile, personal,'
pouucai ana military, to trie Hero ol Jiuena
Vista. Heretofore their hostility has shown
itself in overslauging Gen. Taylor, depressing
him in his command; and in every possible
way shutting him out of public view. But
this negative policy lias had no other effect
than to excite indignation against Mr. Polk
and his advisersr A more decided policv has
been determined upon, and hencefourth not
tuily Gen. Taylor but his friends are to feel the
power of the administration. Proscription is
now to be the order of the day, and the work
has already commenced. The first victim is
the Postmaster atllarrisburg. A letter to the
the Philadelphia Pennsylvanian (locofoco) "an
nounces the appointment of Isaac G. McKin
ley, Esq., as Postmaster at Harrisburg, in place
of James Peacock, Esq. Mr. McKinley is
the editor of the llarrisburs Democratic Un-
8on. Thus far, says the Pennsylvanian the j trict cheapest power known and in inexhaust
Philadelphia Bulletin gives us .the cause of I ible quantities every facility of transporting
the proscription. . It says : "We have been in
formed that Mr. Peacock's removal was owim;
to his participation in the Taylor State Con
vention, recently held in Ilarrhburgh!"
So, to be a friend of Gen. Taylor is hence
forth to bring down the haired of Mr. Polk!
We shall now see, who of the many office
holders who were inclined towards Gen. Tay
lor will now back out, and protest "they nev
er liked the man."

Dignified Employment. The Legislature

on Tuesday, in debating a bill reported by a
Committee, to impose a tax on old bachelors.
An' amendment was adopted extending the

amend by exempting those bachelors who
could prove that they had offered themselves

For What .'
C3The following communication is from
the pen of a gentleman of Louisville who has
lately written two or three very excellent ar
ticles for the Louisville Journal upon the rela
tive cost and applicability of steam power for
manufacturing purposes compared with water
power Coal Fields; &c. The author's object
is to bringjto notice the town of Cannelton, sit
uated on the river between this place and Lou
isville; but nevertheless the arguments will ap
ply as well to ihis place and we hope may have
weight with our citizens. It was addressed
to a citizen of our town.
Dear Sir: Pittsburg is a very thriving city,
although it is at the head of a very muddy
stream,"dry the summer and frozen in the win
ter," although it is in the centre of a barren re
gion. It has lost most of its commercial im
portance, but its merchants have gone into
manufactures. Why does it grow? What
gives it importance? Coal! Coal! To get
near this capitalists raise the hills togetaplace
to build upon. Now can you tell me how long
the cotton, hemp, iron and wool of the rich
plains of the South and West are to be taken
up this river eight hundred mile?, above a site
which is below all the important obstructions
of the Ohio, equally healthy with Pittsburg,
with a position perhaps unequalled on the riv
er, by which daily and weekly packets are pass
ing to and from every section of the great West,
and where coal is to be had at one cent a bush
el cheaper than at Pittsburg, and in the centre
of the richest agricultural countries in the
world?
In fifteen years Illinois and Indiana will hare
a population of three and a half million of souls.
Are these to be tributary to Fittsburg, or New
England, or Old England, for that which they
can produce far cheaper at home ? Nature gives
us in power and distance at least 25 per cent,
advantage over the cotton manufacturer of New
England, and perhaps 10 per cent, more in
cheapness of living. We have even now abun
dance of capital for any enterprise which will
yield one half of this difference. Operatives
from New and Old England are ready to come
to us in thousands if we will guaranty employ
ment. Have we not the men competent to
take hold of and prudently and energetically
carry on manufactures of every kind? The
Lawrences and Apple tons are not confined to
New England.
Nature has placed the great Illinois coal-field,
and covered it w ith the most proline soil for
some good purpose. She intended it for the
great manufacturing region of the world. In
England she has placed the coal on an average
over 500 feet under the surface; in Nova Sco
tia 300; in Belgium 700, and in veins averag-
ia& eS3 tnan three feet in thickness
In Eng-
lautl irou yields on an average only 26 per cent
On the other side of the Mountains the coal is
under Mountains two hundred miles distant
from the nearest point where it can be used for
other than iron manufacturing purposes and
the iron there yields only about 30 per cent.
over thirty-four millions of dollars has now
been expended in rail roads and canals to take
that coal to tide water. The Illinois coal field
at various positions, such as ours at Cannelton,
offers all the elements of a manufacturing dis-
man and matter proximity to the raw mate
rial iron yielding GO per cent. cotton, hemp,
wool, &C. nearness to a vast market cheap
living health good sites buildingmateriuls
of best quality, and in free States.
Where else in the wide world are all these
natural advantages found? The more you look
at the condition of manufacturing districts the
greater will our advantages appear. Take a
cotton manufactory of say 10,000 spindles, re
quiring a capital of not over $200,000, making
about 4,000,000 yards of cotton cloth; the dif
ference in cost of cotton between us and Bos
ton, and the freight, interest and insurance on
the goods brought here is rather over one per
cent, per yard 640,000 difference in one mill ! !
Steam factories are now making the b?st divi
dends in New England; ci-al costs there 22
cents per bushel. The saving of fuel in the
mill here would be 610,000 more saving in
cheapness of living still more. Now how long
are we to bear this burthen of 25 per cent.?
How much longer are we to send our raw ma
terial to a barren country, 1200 miles off, to
be manufactured send provisions to feed the
manufacturers pay the interest on rail roads
and canals to do the transportation and then
take our pay in a small quantity of the goods
made up? We are not in Roman provinces
and compelled to do the bidding of lordly mas
ters !
Thiuk a little of thee matters and see your
citizens who have the mind and the means to
act and work out our full independence. Let
us start all kinds of manufactories where God
has made the most proper place for them. Let
us make a start and wc will soon show that the
"star of empire still moves westward." If you,
and such men as you, will move, as you should,
in this matter, we can, in twenty years, drive
Old and New England fabricsout of every mar
kent in the world. Yours truly, S.
Negro Suffrage. The official vote on ne
gro suffrage at the late election in Connecticut
is published. Every county in the State gave
a majority against it, and the State a majority
of 13,7'J5 out of 25,3 !S votes cast, or nearly
four to one.
Funny Law-Suit. When Henry Campbell
Esq., now Mayor of the city of Allegheny, was
a candidate for election, a certain John Chess
took the opposite side of the question, and even
let his political feelings get so warm that he
said, "If Campbell is elected Mayor I will
leave the city!" Mr. O. S. Palmer, a friend of
Mr. Campbell, heard this threat on the part of
Mr. John Chess, and in presence of witnesses
promised to give him, the said John Chess, ten
dollars if he would keep his word and evacuate
the city. Mr. Campbell was elected Mayor,
and Mr. Chess, as good as his word, packed
up his "traps" and left the good city of Alle
gheny ,convinced that she was "joined to herpo
litical idolsand that it was best to let her alone.
In process of time he sent a bill to Mr. O. S.
Palmer for the ten dollars which he consider
ed he was entitled to for leaving the city.
Mr. Palmer did not "fork up," whereupon Mr.
Chess sued him before Esq. Ha) s for that a
mount. The Pittsburgh Iron City, from which
we gather these particulars, is of opinion that
Mr. Palmer will have to fork over the X.
THE CHOLERA.
The following article exhibiting the progress
thus far of that scourage of Nations, the Asi
atic Cholera, and forecasting the amount of
danger to be apprehended from its coming, if
come it does, will be read with interest :
The Great Scourge of humanity a scourge
more awful than Ami a and his Huns more j
terrible than the eruption of a volcano more
devastating than the throes of an earthquake
the Great Scourge of the Cholera is at this mo
ment advancing towards us with silent but in
domitable rapidity, if we may believe the in
telligence received almost daily from the fron
tiers of the Russian Empire. Its course is de
scribed as being northwesterly, and it is said to

The last intelligence that we have from Eng

terly point it has reached, and from which it
expends in a line S. S. E.. through Kieff. fKewl '
to Trebizond, on the Black Sea, and further
South through Asiatic Turkey into Persia. It
made its first appearance in Trebizond on the
8th of September, and in Riga on or before the
12th. Thirty cases were reported in Trebizond
on the 11th, described as being not very viru
lent. About the same number of cases daily,
are reported at Erzeroum, (near Trebizond)
where one-third of the cisea were fatal. The
mortality in the Russian towns is 6tated at i
two-third the number of cases. The disease existing circumstances, as well upon princi

It is impossible to divest the mind of awe,
and even terror, while brooding over the antic- 5th from Fort Leavenworth, bringing passen
ipated advent of a dreadful epidemic, in which ' gers Commodore Stocktcn and Lt. Thompson,

But the ignorant suffer with the wise, and Stockton; Mr. Samuel J. Henoley, and forty-
the wise are called upon and permittep to les-1
sen the affliction which would otherwise fall
upon the massess with unequal weight. Ex
perience has already proved that the resources
of science in Europe and the United States are ! dent on the way. While encamped on Truck
competent to the successful resistance of the j ey's river, the party was attacked at night by
East Indian plague, whose ravages were les
sened, and in many instances, prevented, du
ring its former visitation, fifteen years ago;
and now, with a better knowledge, of it than
was then enjoyed, we have every reason to be
lieve that, should it visit us again, it will pre
sent few of its former terrors.
Nor is there, perhaps, any occasion to ex
pect that its passage to the New World will be
a speedy one. Looking back to the rocordsof
its former occurrence, (from which we may
compute its rate of travel,) we find that it
made its appearance m Eastern Kussia in tne
fall of 1830: at Moscow, for example, on the
2Sth of September.
It was not until thirteen months afterwards
that it reached England, (it broke out at Sun
derland, on the 28th of October, 1831.) and it
was not until the 8th of June, 1832, that it ap
peared at Quebec, upwards of twenty months
after its appearance at Moscow. Anticipating
for it a similar rate of progression now, (and
experience shows a remarkable uniformity,
generally speaking, in its advance,) there
would seemlittle occasion to expect its appear
ance in England before next October, or in A-
merica before the summer of 1849
Science and benevolence, however, aTe new
busily enaazed in watching its steps. Gov
ernments and municipalities stand in readiness
to prepare, at a moments warning for its ap
proach ; and we may expect its coming here
after, should it come, assured that it cannot
take us by surprise ,and equally assured that all
the resources of knowledge and humanity will
be in requisition to deprive it of its dangers.
Immigrants. 13,600 immigrants arrived at
the port of New York during the month of Oc
tober. CC-Tlt is stated that the number of emi
grants to Canada who have died in three
months on shipboard, or after they were lauded,
is erren thousand one hundred and forty.
Kendall ofJthe Picayune, and "Mustang,"
of the Delta. "Mustang," the army corres
pondent of the New Orleans Delta, thus hu-.
morously explains the manner in which him
self and Kendall were "horribly wounded."
"Among others of the unfortunate wounded
who are doing remarkably well, is Mr. Ken
dall, of the Picayune, volunteer aid-de-camp
to Gen. Worth, and your modest but humble
servant. Mr. Kendell you will findin the.list
of wounded slightly. I do not think his wound
was considered dangerous from the first, as the
ball struck him "right plump in his horse's
ear!" and at the. present time he looks to be
in as fine health and spirits as Ijhave ever teen
him, and as well as a "war-worn soldier"
might expect to be. I was so unfortunate my
self as to be struck right in my horse's saddle:
but the ball was spent and did not go through
the saddle-skirt; therefore, as yet," have not
suffered any inconvenience from it." I also
happened to be caught in bad company at the
garita, and, with several others, was knocked
head-over-heels by the explosion of a shell, but
being in a hurry to pick myself up, I trod up
on an officer, who pettishly said I had "no bus
iness there anyhow!" therefore I don't count
that as any thing, as I hurt somebody else
worse than I was hurt myself; now, having
"taken a bath, brushed off the smoke and dust
of battle," and between good liquor, good ci
gars, and a moderate share of the balance of
the good things of this world, "am as comfort
able as might be expected under the existing
circumstances." Having neglected to have
my name put down on the list of wounded un
til after it had been made out, that all the
world, and "my numerous frieuds in particu
lar," might kuow that "I, too, wa3 hurt," will
excuse this paragraph from your modest cor-
graph:
Scarcely ever has the essential welfare of

bed, by an Indian arrow. four horses belong
ing to the attacked party were badly woun
ded. As soon as the alarm was given, the
Indians retreated, without doing further mis
cewf. There was some snow in the California
mountains, but on this side the mountains and
plains were barren, and for the rest of the jour
ney the rivers were found low, and the weath
er continued dry.
Many emigrants were met on the way, both
for Oregon and California. They all seemed
getting along very well.
A number of bands of Indians, Siox, Paw
nees, Cheyennes, &c, were found encamped
along the Flatte. They uniformity sent out
deputations to "talk" with Commodore S., and
expressed very friendly feelings. They desir
ed the Commodore to say to their Father at
Washington, that they were anxious to enjoy
the benefits of civilization, like, their brethren
of the Lower Missouri. They wanted an gent
seut to them; also implements of husbandry,
&c. Thev were tired of war and hunting, and
had at last become convinced of the greater
importance of civilization.
New Jerset Election. The New York Ex

TilMW4SinANA ISSUE.
The State Bank of Indiana has just had en
graved by Rawdon, Wright, Hatch & Edson,
of this city, new plates of its issues of Fives,
Tens and Twenties. It is the intention of the
Directory to call in their old issue, as soon as
possible, and replace them with these. Only a
small amount of the new notes are yet ia cir
culation. The mechanical execution of these notes, done
under the superintendence of Mr. Jones, who
has charge of Messrs. Rawdon, Wright, Hatch
& Edson's office in this city, has never been sur
passed in the United States. The designs are
beautiful, and in exceedingly good taste. The
vignette is the same on each denomination
the State arms in front, witha farmer seated on
the right, grasping in his right hand the handle
of an axe, with the axe itself resting by his side
on the ground; his left hand gracefully thrown
back, and extended toward another farmer gath
ering corn in the back ground. On the left is
the figure of Justice, with her sword and bal
ances, and still further to the left, in the back
ground, the capital of the State. Surmounting
the entire vignette is a spread eagle, his wings
extend from the centre of the headof the farmer
to the same point over the head of justice.
On the upper corners of the fives are larga
figures indicating the denomination, with chil
dren holding bunches of wheat, encircle the fig
ures. On the right lower corner is the Goddess
of Liberty, standing, her left arm reclining on
the top of a figure live, and holding the olive
branch in her right hand, with the usual atten
dants in the back ground. On the correspond
ing corner, at the left, is one of the most pleas
ant and beautiful female faces we ever looked
upon. Centrally at the lower edge of the note,
between the President's and Cashier's signature,
is another large figure five.
On the tens at the right lower corner is the
full length figure of an Indian girl, her leftarm
elevated, holding an ear of corn, while the left
arm falls on her side, the hand resting on the
letter X. On the upper corner is the denomi
nation in figures. On the left end at the low
er corner is a buffalo, in the centre a fancy 10,
and at the upper corner a stag. Faintly printed
10s are stamped through the right and left cen
tre, below the main letter line.
The twenties have a fail statue female figure
on the centre of the right end, with the word
"twenty" at the comers above and below.
Figures "20" are placed at the right of the vig
nette above, and at the lower left corner of
the note. At the bottom of both tens and
twenties are the Roman characters which mark
the denominations, corresponding in position
with numeral of the fives.
The engraving throughout is bold, distinct,
and in every respect finally executed. The
drawing is also beautifully done. The entire
work reflects the highest credit upon the au
thor; and must convince all impartial minds
that it is not worth while to go farther east
than Cincinnati to find some of the most skill
ful workers in this line to be met with any
where. We predict there will be few suc
cessful counterfeits of these notes. Ci'ncinna

From the round at the top he has stepped to the sky!
