community that Teter Dombey sells the

must be equally advantageous to extend the in
formation to the other nine-tenths, since the
increased expense of Mr. D. for rent, clerk hire,
&c, &c, will bear no proportion to the in
crease of business which constrains it. The
time is not far distant when the city merchant
whose rent costs him more than his advertis

CO" A boy was bitten by a mad dog about
two months ago, and last week died. At the
time the boy was bitten, our Common Council
passed, an order authorizing the City Marshal
to kill all the dogs running at large, and we be
lieve six or eight, out of as many hundred, were
actually knocked in the head. On Sunday
last, we learnej that another rabbid dog was
seen in our streets, and that it had bitten two
or three children and several dogs. Our citi
zens at once took the law into theirown hands,
and, Sunday though it was, more than sixty of
the canine race" were destroyed.
Counterfeit Eagles. A Frenchman giv

with passing a number of counterfeit gold ea
gles, and committed to the county jail. The
counterfeit is said to have been executed w ith
much skill, and the pieces are so heavily coat
ed with gold, that aqua fortis produced no ef
fect upon them. They are so well coined as to
deceive the best judges.
THE PRICE OF A LEUT. COLONELCY.
In the late canvass between Judge Embree
and Mr. Owen we had occasion to show to our
readers what, in the estimation of the latter
gentleman and the President, was the market
value, at Washington, in February last, of a
Captain's commission in the army. The fol
lowing extract from an article of the National
Whig will demonstrate that a Leutenant Col
onelcy had also its price and what that price
was. Indeed, Mr. Folk seems to have adopted
and applied, (to his own party of course,) with
uniform success, the Machiavelian maxim of a
corrupt British Minister that "every man has
The statement referred to by the Whig is said
to be rife of late in the political circles of Wash
ington, anditis conjectured that this hotariety
of the transaction has more or less todo with
the dispostion evinced by the Administration,
in the Fremont trial and otherwise, to throw
Mr. Benton overboard the Administration
finding itself in the exact position of the pos
sessor of contraband goods, when the hue and
cry is made, anxiously looking round for a
chance to rid itself of the suspected commo
dity. When the bill legalizing the monstrous false
hood, that war existed between the United
States and Mexico, by the act of the latter pow
er, went to the Senate for its concurrence, a
movement was made and carried, to refer so

It will be remembered that this understand

of the Military Committee, who of his own

Senate, and thus precipitated the question of
absolute and unconditional war into the midst

The Necessity for the Wilmot Proviso
Superseded. A Columbus, Ohio, Letter Wri-
ter sneakins of JuW McT.ean's chances for iho
IH3 view is understood to be this : Slavery-
being a local and municipal institution, inca-
pable of being established or continued with
it follows that slavery cannot constitutionally
be introduced into any territory of the United
States where it does not exist at the time of
the acquisition, either by the Government di
rectly, or by the Territorial Legislature, with
the sanction of the Government; and that a
resolution of Congress declaring this rule is all
that is needed to secure the new territory against
its introduction. In other words, the Wilmot
Proviso, so far as new territory already free is
concerned, is in the Constitution, anil conse
quently law from the moment of acquisition ;
and the only effect of a resolution of Congress
affirming the principle, is to declare that law.
Steamboat Accidents. As the steamboat
ing season opens we are called on to chronicle
the loss of life aud destruction of property by
boat3 running into each other, by running on
snags and sinking, bursting, blowing up,
and bv destruction by fire; and scarcely a pa
per is issued now-a-days but contains a deplor
able account of some such disaster, in ninety
nine cases in an hundred the result of careless
ness and neglect. The latest news under this
head is the burning of the Phoenix on the lakes
and the loss of nearly 200 lives, mostly ger
man emigrants from Holland. When near
Shebozagcn, she took fire below decks, and all
efforts to extinguish the flames were unavail
ing. There w ere on board at the time of this
accident two hundred passengers, thirty only
of whom took to the small boats and pushed
off from the burning boat these were picked
up by the Delaware, which soon hove in sight.
The Delaware arrived only in time to be a
mournful spectator of this terrible calamity,
and to hear the agonizing shrieks of those who
perished on board the Phoenix. Had her ar
rival been a few minutes earliershe would pro
bably have been able to save all on board the

The spiritof '-damned innovatioir thus satir

never more rife than in "these dastard new

to Beersheba in less than no time, voyages to
the moon, volant and clairvoyant, bridges un

may almost be said to be among the common
realities of the day. Beside these thousands of
other projects and theories scarcely more wild

a ten years' nap now is likely enough to wake
up without a land-mark by which to recognize
the once familiar face of good old Tellus. Un

The Cholera. A Disinfectant. In a letter
to the Times, Mr. Hera path, of Bristol, says:
"The object of the present communication is
merely to give the public opinion a right di
rection, so as to help the future boards of health
to combat this insidious and powerful enemy.
I must at once state that the two most popular
disinfectants of the day the chloride of zinc
and the nitrate of lead, known as Sir W.
Burnet's and Ledoyen's will be of no avail,
although they will promptly remove ordinary
putrid effluvia. The only chemical preventive
I depended upon, in my numerous exposures
to the virus, was chlorine gas; and this 1 be
lieve to be a perfect one, if the fumigation is
complete. I invariably passed through an at
mosphere of it on my return home, and kept
it escaping in my residence during the contin
uance of the disease in the city. I also placed
large quantities of the substance necessary for
evolution of this gas in the hands ofa Bristol
druggist, who was kind enough to distribute 1,
292 quantities of it gratuitously to applicants
during tbiee days, with instructions for the
use; and am happy to say, that during that tim ;
the deaths fell from ten to one per day; and I
have but very little doubt, that if every ship ar
riving in England from an infected place
should be exposed to a perfect fumigation with
chlorine, we shall be preserved from the infec
tion." (X3The Alexandria Gazette has received,
from a respectable source in Washington, a
communication in regard to the proposition to
sell Mount Vernon, in which it is stated that:
"Thirty years ago, five thousand dollars were
collected for the purpose of erecting a monu
ment to Washington in Virginia. This sum
has been so judiciously managed as to amount
now to more than thirty-six thousand dollars.
The writer says, that on a recent visit to Rich
mond he suggested to several influential citi
sens there the idea of purchasing; with this
sum and additions, Mount Vernon, and pres
erving it as a monument. The State of Virgin
ia he thinks, ought to own Mount Vernon."
If the United States will not purchase the es
tate, we hope Virginia will. It ought no lon
ger to remain a private property, as it cannot
be used and enjoyed as such. It should belong

Q3We find thefollowing'in the Louisville
Journal of Thursday last. We know nothing
of the matter ourselves, but we have no doubt
that some friend in New Harmony will be able
to inform the public concerning it. It is a
matter that concerns deeply the working class
es audany information throwing light upon it
will be thankfully recieved by us and published.
The Journal says:
Wm. Maclure, Esq., formerly a citizen of
New Harmony, Indiana, who died in the city of
Mexico in 1840, possessed of property in Spain
and the United States, estimated at from
6250,000 to 6300,000, made in his last will
very generous provisions for the diffusion of
useful knowledge in this country among the
working classes; but we learn from the St. Louis
Republ lean that the wishes of the testator
have not been complied with. That Journal re
marks "The estate, we fear, has been squandered,
at least to a very considerable extent. It is
hard to tell what became of the property in
Spain: the splendid libraries which he possess
ed there, were scattered, by an agent sent there,
&s was supposed, to take care of them. The
property in the French funds, some 620,000;
is said to have found its way to the Academy
of Natural Sciences in Philadelphia; and a
most wanton disposition is said to have been
made of the real and personal estate in Indiana
until at the present time, only a fractional
part of the testator's devise remains. The de
vise of William Maclure was calculated to
benefit a numerous class of citizens, and an ef
fort should at least be made to compel the
proper appropriations of his wealth. If it has
been alienated by illegal means, or squandered
by unfaithful hands, it ought to be made
There can be no doubt that the benevolent
designs of the testator have been frustrated by
flagrant dishonesty somewhere. We have in
our possession a copy of the will, and its pro
visions are too clear to be misunderstood. We
hope that the fraud may be exposed to public
Generous. We learn from the Pittsburg pa
pers, that the officers of the 4th regiment of Ar
tillery, to which Capt. Drum was attached at
the time he fell, have made a contribution to
his wife and family of 62000, which has been
forwarded to them.

England Astonished. The New York Her

Grntlemen: With deep sensibility, I res

the time. Most candidates say they are for a
"rigorous prosecution;" I go further than that.
Iam forgiving the Mexicans the very devil.
The war is unjust and infernal on the part of
Mexico, who began it, and President Polk's
only mis'.ake was, in not understanding, a year
sooner than he did, the circumvention of John
Bull and the diabolical collusion of the Mexi
cans. 2d. Now, I am not for disturbing that tariff

whom, Mr. B. tishee, assisted in the office at

Resfo.vsk of the People. The New York Tri

atory to extracts from several papers in praise warm
and glowing and eloquent praise, of the speech and
resolutions of Mr. Clay:
As the hasty and imperfect synopsis of Mr. Clay'a

are thrilled with patriotic and ioyous enthusiasm.
Those who hoped are confirmed; those who doubted
lhat Mr. Cay would take broad, comprehensive, and
truly national ground in opposition to the whole dra

V an liureu was tlieiirsi and he the second victim, con
fess their disappointment. Mr. Clay has added one
more to the many proofs of his exalted statesmanship
and lofty devotion to rii;ht. It is poss ible that he has
again proved himself a better man than this people
deserve or will select as a rultr, but we do not believe
it. However, let the future speak for itself enough
for to day that he haa done his countrv urvlrn t?r

From the Syracuse Journal.
Mr. Clay, if we may judge by the abstract of his
speech, has met the great issues with his characteris
tic frankness, and with a boldness that shows the firm
ness of those principles upon which he acts as a states
man. The truthful and unanswerable distinction between
granting supplies aud voting a lie, as was the case,
is worthy the high source whence it emanates. The
unjust and oppressive demands of our Government
in asking indemnity indeed every question growing
out of the war has been met, and we have no doubt
satisfactorily answered in the speech.
We can see no reason why the entire North should
not rally around the standard so nobly raised by Hen
ry Clay at Lexington.
From the Utica Gazette.
The bold and decided stand taken by Mr Clay will
do much good. Congress has a right to know for
w hat this war is prosecuted. More than this, it Las
the sole authority to prescribe the object for wiiieh it
shall in (uture be waged, whether it agree with Mr.
I oik's original purposes or not. When Congress haa
done its duty ol thus defining the object of the war
we shall liegin to know something about tho proba
bility of its termination.
If, as we fervently hope. Congress takes the wise
and prudent position of Mr. Clay lhat the acquisition
of Mexican territory is no object, we may with him '
look for peace within sixty hours. This single stroke
severs the (iordian knot solves the whole dilhcuhy
ot this Mexican war.
From the Troy Whig.
