Wade, Steele & Co., Forwarding and Commission merchants and Grocers, St. Louis, in anoth er column of our paper. HENRY CLAY. This time honored statesman has again been elected to the United States Senate. His country has again called him from his retirement to a seat in her national counsels' We regard his election at this time as pe culiarly fortunate for our country. In days, that are past, it has been said that nought but the voice of Henry Clay, could have calmed the turbulent waves of faction, and by his personal influence alone, imbue the members of Congress with that spirit of compromise which admitted our own State into this glorious confederacy. The same vexed question, then as now, threatens to shake the very foundation, of our constitu tion, and again the voice of Henry Clay will be raised in defence of our Union. In announcing the determination of this gifted statesman to accept of the high station that has been assigned him; wo must congrat ulate our countrymen, on an event so aus picious of the futnre prosperity of our coun try. With General Taylor as President and Henry Clay as Senator, we have no fears, that either not them or southern fan atics, will succeed in their treacherous ef forts, to dissolve this great Union. The present Legislature of our Stale, cer tainly has done more towards untieing the silken cords of matrimony, than any pre vious one, for many years. To those who have entered this slate, and are dissatisfied, the present time affords them an opportunity of easily ridding themselves of the incum brance of an uncongenial spouse. Our rea ders, are not aware perhaps, that, the Ju diciary and Legislaliv departments of our Stale, are at issue on the subject of Divorces. It has been decided by the Supreme Court that an act of the Legislature, granting a diveree is unconstitutional, and void, conse quently, should such opinion be adhered to by our court, the rights of property may be in soma cases very seriously affected by the aet of the Legislature in granting divorces. OCT Our young friend will bear in mind that the Ball at the Randolph House, Hunts villa, comes off on next Thursday. They will find mine host Withers well prepared for their accommodation in every respect. A CHANCE FOR PRINTERS. We notice that the office of the Hanni bal Gazette is offered for sale, either in whole or part. Persons desirous of enter ing into the printing business will, no doubt find it to their interest to purchase. OCT" The Hon. W. Seward has been elec ted Senator of the United State from the late of New York. His majority on joint ballot was 01. GOLD. Nearly all of our exchange! are filled with glowing accounts of the inexhausti ble suppliei of this precious metal, in the mines of California, and we hear of very few accounts of the alloy. Many of our young men, captivated with these accounts and stimulated with the desire of amassing a great fortune, in a short time, are prepa ring to risk their all in the venture, without counting the cost. It is not our purpose in penning this article, to endeavor to de ter any one from going to California, for we are well convinced that tho desire of accumulating sudden wealth, will far out weigh in their estimation, any thing we could say to the contrary. We make all due allowance for this principle in human nature, and to those who are determined to go, will only add a word of caution. The hardship and fatiegue that will have to be undergone, does not weigh a groat with us, in the scale of difficulties to be overcome. We admire the bold, daring, determination of those who have well considered this part of the subject, and will accord to them all due praise. But to the young adventu rer, who hat acarcely passed the age of hit majority, and has never been initialed into the mysteries of vice, of him we would ask tho question, are you prepared to meet the temptation to almost every vice, of ev ery degree and grade, which stains the hu man family? Have you sufficient moral courage to Hand, where the law holds but feeble tenure, and depend on yourself alone for protection, not merely from open assaults of the vicous, but from the insidu ous influence of evil associations. You cannot hope, but that the glittering gold will attract myriads of this class of per sons, whom the law with all it potency, is unable to restrain in the States. We say therefore be cautious, and remember a good name is more valuable than gold. OCT We have received a communication signed "Randolph," it shall receive attention next week. THE TRAGEDY. We tee, says the Parit Mercury, that some of our editorial brethren have been awfully hoaxed in relation to the tragedy in Schuyler county. Now we are happy to inform the public that it is all a hoax, as the dead Sheriff was in our neighborhood recently, and earnestly denies having been killed at all. MR. CLAY ELECTED SENATOR. Louisville, Feb. 1st. Tho Hon. Henry Clay was elected to the United Slates Senate to day. He re ceived 92 votes, and R. M. Johnson, for whom the Democrats voted, received, 46 votes. DC7The Frankfort Commonwealth in speaking of Mr. Clay's election to the U. S. Senate, says: "His return to the Senate will be hailed with pleasure by the hundreds of thousands of his frieuds and admirers throughout the Union. The sffectionalo regard which Kentucky entertains for ber distinguished and favorite son is not more fully evinced by the overwhelming vote cast for him, than it was in the loud and prolonged sp. plause from the crowded gallery and lobbies of ihe Representative's chamber, whiih greeted the Speaker's announcement of bis election on yes terday." U" We are requested to say, that the Sons of Temperance in Brunswick, hav ing been disappointed in securing the at tendance of Col, Doniphan and Hon. Jas. II. Birch detained by the Clinton Circuit Court will not have their celebration on the 22d inat. but postpone it to some other time, of which due notice will be given. Brunswicker. Gen. Taylor. The Illinois, which arri ved last night reports having passed the ST I I . a . steamer oaiaain at v icKSOurg, having on board the President elect, on his way East, via Nashville, Louisville and Cincinnati. A splendid ball was to come off in Vicks burg in honor of his arrival, after which he would take passage on the steamer Tenness ee for Nashville, stopping a few hours at Memphis. The Convoy, from Memphis, was met on her way down crowded will, passengers, on the way to meet and wel come the old hero. New Era. Difficulty at Tampico. Our cotempo raries, the Delta and Crescent, of yester day, speak of a difficulty that had occurred between Captain Carr, of the Quarter Mas ter' Department, and General Garay, com mandant at Tampico. The latter peremp torily ordered Capt. Carr, to quit the Mex ican territory in twenty-four hours. Our countrymen indignantly refused, alleging his being subject to no commands except those of his Government; on which Gener al Garay made a display of military force. At this juncture, the United State steamer Saralogo appeared off the port, when Mr. Chase, the American Consul, and Captain Carr, went on board to confer with her commander. The result of their delibera tion was, that the Saratoga started imme diately for Sacrifices, the readezvous of the Gulf Squadron. Thus the affair stands but out of it something unpleasant may ar rise, if cool heads do not interfere to moder- i tie Mexican impetuosity. JV. O. Times. J MISSOURI LEJGISLA TURE. Correspondence of the Times. JtrrsRSOH Citt, Feb., 10 1849. The bill which passed the Senate las week, to reform the praciice tt lew in this Sttte, and which was drafted by the Hon. R. W. Well, was taken up on Thursday, having been made the special order for that day. Most of the Lawyers in the llou.e, discussed ile provisions at length and several able speeches were made for and against, particularly the 17th section. The vote wss taken on an amendment, stri king out this section, or ratner on the motion lo reject the amendment, tnd wis decided in the negative, producing much applause. Mr. Bing ham. afi.tr tha stamping had subsided, tsked leave to change his vote, as he had voted under misapprehension. Leave being granted, Mr. B voted for the rejection of the amendment. The friends of the bill, thinking that they had good cause to eiult, commenced a furious stsmping tnd thumping of their tablet, but before the tp plause hsd subsided, another member, who had not been present when the vote was taken, ask- ed and obtained leave to vote, which being against rejection, again changed the appearance of things, and elicited further bursts of applauee This was done several times, until some one moved a reconsideration of the vote on tht mo lion to reject tha amendment, which being car ried, the vote was taken the second time on the motion to reject, and was decided in the nega tive, by a majority of three or four. Mr. Ballou then moved a further amendment, striking out that portion of the bill which it quired an affidavit to petitions and answers. This motion was under debate at the lime of adjourn ment on Thursday, together with a motion of Mr. Woodward lo refer the whole bill and amendments to the next General Assembly When the bill was first called up in the House, there was a clear majority in favor of it, but since the discussion which has taken place, this fact is not so evident. Governor King has been using bis influence to defeat the bill, and this may bs the true cause of the change whinh has lakeu place in the minds of some members with regsid lo it. I have not studied the provisions with thai ctre, which would enable ma come lo any very decided opinions as to its merits, but as it is a very important measure, making the most radical changes, I am disposed to think it would be by far the wiser plan for tht Legislature to adopt the motion of tht member from Newton, to refer the whole subject to the next General Assembly, by that time, men's minds would be belter informed in regard to It, than they can possiblp be at present. The people loo will have had an opportunity of passing dpon it, and as Mr. Price, the talented representative from Dade, urged in the speech which ha commenced just before adjournment, they ought to btve this opportunity, as the bill makes chsnges, not only in the practice, but in the law also. A number of bills have passed both Houses, but the majority of them are local in their char- acter, 1 presume your readers care nothing about them. The bill to authorize James Newton Trot ler, of Carroll, lo peddle without license, was ta ken up, on motion of Mr. Compton, the "High Bird of Liberty," who made a speech in its sup port. He said "if he could say anything that would shine like apples of gold in pewter plates, he would do so. A bill had passed allowing man to keep a dram shop without license, end that case was pronounced number 1; his case was a number 1 case also, for James was deaf and dumb, but not blind, as (he reporters had said, for he had two beautiful eyes, that went right to the hearts of the girls of Carroll, whenever thsre was a quilling, for be was' a fin looking man every way, and any girl might do well lo gel him, barring the deafness, for as to the dumb psit, the woman would have no objection to that, as they always liked to do ell tht talking themselves. Now lie was not going lo say any thing against the women, for that disposition lo use iheir tongues, although they made a fellow feel a little uncomfortable, when they look it into their beads to give him a lashing. He had beard it said, thai there were fewer women than men dumb, and be supposed the reason of it was, that they never lei their little tongues, (bless the crealurea,) get rusty from want of use; they always kept them well ground, and it was tick, tick, tick, all the lime, lika the well oiled wheels of a clock: the only difference was, the tick, tick, of the clock would stop, if it was not wound up, but there was no running down of a woman's tongue, when il once got a fair start. But Mr. Speaker, talking about perpetual mo lion, wonl pass Mr. Trotter's bill; he is, as I said, t fine looking man and a great fellow amongst the youngsters, as well as the women, aim ns tuuiu icotii ine aumo cniluren. Here Mr. Compton went through a variety of motions with his fingers, in imitation of Mr. Trotter's manner of leaching, which amused '.he House very much. The bill panned, ayes, 41, noes 36. Tho Senate passed on Friday, the bill to in corporate the Missouri and Mississippi Railroad Company. This is tht Lexington and New Madrid Railway. Tha following bills have also passed the Sen ate: An set to incorporate ihe Fayette Masonic Lodge. An act lo pay John C, Burch and W. B. Starke for services rendered as military Secrete ry's, when the last regiments from this stale were called out for (be Mexican war. An act lo incorporate iba While River navi' gation company. A bill to amend the charter of the Horn Mu tual insursnce company. This bill contained several important provisions, one of wnich is, tbal in tvery county in which property to ihe amount of 125,000 is insured by the company ther shall be a director, who. besides ctstinc the votes of those having intuunctin tht company living in ttid county, htt a general supervision snd control of ilia company affairs in tht county. Ther will be about 15 counties I learn lhat will be entitled lo a director among which la Howard. Tht Senate hat tlao passed tht amendment to the constitution making tht offices of Secre- teiy of Slate, Treasurer, Register, Auditor tnd Attorney General elective by the people. There was some opposition to tht clause in relation lo the Secretary of Sttte, some of the members argu ing lhat in consequence of the close tnd confi dential intercourse between tht Governor tnd this officer, tha Executive ought to be allowed the appointing power in tha case. In the House tht amendment making the judges of ihe Circuit Court eleciivt by ibt people, past ed almost unanimously but tbrtt members vo ling in lha negative. , If I recollect aright, I mentioned in my lest lhat tha apportionment bill had passed the Senate. I wes so informed but it was a mistake; tbt bil has not been acted on. The house has adopted no resolution yel fixing t day of adjournment. Tht weather hat been mild and pleasant for the last two or three days, but there is this evening some prospect of falling weather, lha steamer Haydee has been aground on the bar below since Tuesday last, and there is no prospect of getting off until there is a rise in the river. Tht Amelit liel tt tbt landing here waiting for a rite. CASSIUS. CONGRESSIONAL. Thirtieth Congress 3d. session, Washington, Jan. 24, 1849, Mr. Douglass, substitute for his original bill for the admission of California as an independent Slate into the Union, ceme up to day in the Sen ate, and produced a very happy impression. Th bill provides: 1st. Tbst Congress give its assent to ths com ing in of California as a State of this Union, from and after the 4th of July next. 2d. That the acting Governor of tha territory in the meantime call a convention for the pur peae of framing a constitution and establishing a Stale government. 3d. That the laws of ihe United States be ex tended over il, and iht Sttte be allowed one Reps resentative in Congrss, (of course independent of two Senators.) Tha bill in the present tspect it tht only na lional compromise lhat can be agreed on between tht north and south during this session. The ques. lion oi slavery in trie new territories will never be settled by caucusses experts decisions of con- vsntions, and abstract declaration of (ailh or paradoxies; it can only be settled by wise and practical legislation, which shall admit of an his torical solution of the problem in the course of time, and as the result of ths peculiar circumstan ces of the esse. States ann empires have, likt individuals, an historical generation, birth, growth and decline, which it is the business of statesmen to consider, if they would ley claim lo mora than mere doctrinal professionships on abstract ques tions. Mr. Douglass' bill endesvored to eliminate the question of slavery from Congress; snd in this, I think, consists the chief merit of the bill. Let the question be settled by the people of the territory, and give them at onca tht privilege of doing so, as, in the view of the fact lhat emigre lion is pouring in from all quarters of the Union it is evident lhat they will bavt t right to demand it in less than a year. The reference of the bill to a select committee of seven, to be appointed by the President of the Senate was very oppropot and felicitous. Mr Dallas's devotion to the whole country, his free dom from all sectional prejudices, and hie sound judgment, ere well known, and have at no time been belter appreciated than now, so thai tht ap poinlmenlof the committee come with particular grace from the Vic President of the Union. The views of tha members of the committee tre well balanced, and a belter constellation of sensible men could scarcely have been selected. The state of Mr. Calhoun's health required that he should not be taxed with fresh labor. The Tehuanlepeo canal or railroad is gain ing ground, tnd it gradually eclipsing the Pan ama scheme. Ths Tehusntepec road is nearer to us, it runs through a neighbors territory, who in ell probability, will make us his heir, and the projectors of the road have no idea of demanding five millions of dollars contribution from our Government. The Mexicsn Governmeut itself has endowed the road with such liberal donations in a moil felicitous climate, lhat very little aid will be required from our treasury, snd the Met can Government is equally ready to grant us the right of wsy acroas the isthmus. Enterprises of such great moment deserve well lhat we should reflect on them, before we decide in favor of this or lhat project. At all events, as long as our steamboats do not depart from and arrive regularly at Panama, it is hardly worth while to engage the faith of the Govern ment lo the amount of so many millions, to save a few hours in ths transit across the isthmus. It would be far better to travel on mules back from Chagres lo Panama, and there to find ves. sals ready to sail north, than to start all "whiz whiz, tchoo, tchoo," by ateam from Chagres to Panama, and, then to remain there a month before meeting with an opportunity to go to San Francisco. yli Hunt up the Scamp !

A Rich Bill of Lading! In the first vessel from port, bound for the gold region, California, a young adventurer with a small capitol, has selected about the most availa ble stock that, in our view of human affairs, man could possibly conceive, as bound not only to sell, but realize a stupendous per centage on the capitol invested. He has en gaged freight for five barrels, and passage for himself; and what do you think these five barrels contain? None but those of a philosophical turn would readily imagine, Well, three barrels containrj rate Jersey lightning, alias New England rum! One barrel of American playing cards, assorted brands, with all, more or less, of the private marka and aigns, as supposed to be set forth in Hoyle's and Green' treaties on Poker, Loo, Eucre, Old Sledge, &c. The fifth bar rel is filled to utter suffocation with all sorts sizes, and known specimens of dice, from the loaded article to the double sixes, fresh from the bone yard. In scanning Ihe bill of ihis bold, enterprising Christian adven turer, none will hesitate to say that his ele gant atockof assorted and useful impliments of civilization, art and refinement, is desti ned to rake down the gold dust, and add no little to the progress of scientific resear ches in the newly broached El Dorado, whereto all eyes strain, and all hearts yearn.

The Washington Union, in noticing the arrival ofone of Fulton' steam pump at Richmond, on its way to the cold mines of Major Heis and Stockton says: "We mel a friend a day or two since, who told us he bad seen a certificate from lha mint, of nine thousand dollars' worth of gold deposited ss the result of five or sis days work, with about es many hands, at tha Whitehall mine in Virginia of Messrs.

GOLD! GOLD! NOTHING BUT GOLD. Virginia i t settling up fierce competition with California in the matter of yellow ore. The Washington Union, of the 24th, state upon the authority of a gentleman who had seen the documents, lhat nine thousand dol lar worth of gold was deposilcd at the mint a few day previously, "as the result of five or six days work, with about as many hands, at the Whitehall mine in Virginia, of Messrs. Heiss, Stockton, & Co. Six ne groes, we learn from another entirely re liable source, obtained thirty-five pound of gold from the 1st lo the 6th or 7th of this month." "Tho last day' working of three ncgroe was worth 81,549." "This," says our friend, "throw California com pletely in the shade." But ho had not then aeen the last accounts from the fairy land which seems to have endured the touch of Midas, leaving single specimens weighing twenty-five ponds of gold. The same number of the Umion contain a brief notice of some of these last account from fairy Innd, which had endured tha touch of Midas. Thu ' " . We are permitted to make an extract from a letter from a highly intelligent source, which gives increased interest to the gold region in California. The letter left Tipic on the 1 9ih oi December last, and is the latest intelligence received from the west coast: "There is a Iato arrival from California, bringing intelligence that a region of gold richer than any yet known, has Icon dis covered north of the former placer. Tha United States store-shi p Lexington was to leave for the United States. When ihii vessel sailed she already had on board 9500, 000 in gold dust for the United Slates." We understand lhat the gold duBt was put on board Ihe ship as the property of in dividual citizena for safe transportation here. And the New York Tribune, also, of the 24th, contains ihe following: A Monto Later from tiie Pacific Discovery of a new Placer. The following letter, which has reached ua from a source worthy of entire confidence, add another marvel to the list of discoveries in Califor nia. It will be seen lhat its date is nearly a month later than that of previous advice. We have no doubt that the extraordinary new it contains will be fully confirmed by future dispatches from the Gold Realm. Mazatlan, Dec. 19, 1848. There is a later arrival from California, bringing intelligence that a region of gold richer than any yet known lias been discover ed, north of the former placer. The Lexington, storeship, was to leave for the U. S., when the vessel left, she had on board about $500,000 in gold dust for the United Stales. I have accidentally met here to-day a young man very recently from Sam Fran cisco, where he is engaged in business, hav ing been a year or two in California, and been over the Gold Region, though not as a laborer. He confirms even the most ex travagant of the accounts we have recently had of tho extraordinary richness of the placer, particularly as to the new Gold Re gion. , Clime of California. Dan Marble, who has a peculiarity unknown even to newspaper editors, of getting hold of the latest news, has the very last that it is possi ble lo gel from the new El Dorrdo, and which of course tends still further toenhanca the attraction of that wonderful region: Marble was in Boston the other day, and stroll ing along the wharves, when he mel a tall, gaunt looking figure, whose sun-burnt countenance and tattered partially colored garment originally of the most outlandish fashion had the pictur esqsness about them derived only from ihe long continued exposure to the atmosphere, which fancy sketchers delight to present on canvass. Dan who never permits the lack of in intro duction lo interfere when he desires to form sn eiquaintance, ha led tht tlranger "Hallo! my friend, where are you from?'' "Jes from Californy, stranger." "Ah indeed! and you can tell us then whether us true about that gold?" somewhat-anxiously interrogated Dan in reply. "True as you live! end a darnd sight mora for no man out of Californy really does live." 'Then why did you come back?" "Back? why to get my family. Fact is tlranger a man there gets so powerful rich that be becomes covetous of himself and if he aiotvery keerful, will cut his own throat to rob himself. Tha root of all evil, you know there' a leelle too much of it, and I left for a while partly on that account." "Oh, did you, eh?" "Yes and between you and me that's the only way a man can die in thai blessed land." "Healthy climate, I suppose?" "Healthy! it ain'i any thing else.
