St. Louis County. Tho Whigs of
St. Louis have nominated the following
ticket, which, it will be seen, is com
plete, and presents an array of worth
and talent that will bo hard to
beat. We hope the Whigs of other
counties will imitate their example, and
put forth their best men for every offico
to be filled, and support and elect them.
We are decidedly opposed to all mon
grel tickets, for any office ; and we
think the Wbigs generally are from the
fact that such arrangements universally
result favorably to the locofocos. They
never make "arrangements" when they
can succeed on their own organization;
and whenever a locofoco wants to
"trade," you may set it down as a "fix
ed fact" that ho is beat. "No mixing
no coalition," is our motto.

Wilson & Co.'s grand Jubilee Pictorial
Brother Jonathan is now issuing from
their press in New York. As an illus
trated historical sheet, it is of great val
ue. The trial of Sarah Good, for
witchcraft, at Salem, 150 years ago, so
graphically described by John Neal, is
here presented (from a spirited origi
nal design by Matterson) in a large
and finely wrought picture occupying
an entire page of the Jonathan. "Rais
ing the First Liberty Pole," is another
fine large engraving the subject being
taken from Fenno Hoffman's descrip
tion of that interesting revolutionary
event in the Mohawk Valley. Beside
these grand features, the Jonathan
abounds in fun and satire for juvenile
readers; and two of the inner pages are
occupied by "Washington's Farewell
Address," printed in a beautiful script
running-hand, and with Washington's
own signature. Altogether this fa
mous Jubilee Pictorial is superior to
any we have seen in former years.

From the National Intelligencer.
We observe in several papers, of late
date, in different parts of the country,
remarks indicative of surpriso at the
silence of the National Intelligencer
touching the grave and delicate ques
tions which at present engage so anx
iously tho attention of Congress, and a
contrast between that silence and the
freedom with which other journals at
the seat of Government express their
opinions and comment on the various
legislative plans brought forward for
the settlement of the questions of the
day. Had the persons who thus regard
the course of the Intelligencer in this
particular as of sufficient consequence
for remark been long acquainted with
this paper, they could hardly fail to
have observed that its editors have ne
ver been in tho habit of volunteering
advice to Congress on matters of diffi
culty; having usually found the good
sense of the masses of the two Houses
comprising generally, as now, among
their members some of the wisest intel
lects of the age equal to tho most per
However anxious wo have, occasion
ally felt, and as we do at this time, re
specting questions of importance agita
ted in Congress, yet, conceiving that
our advice to Congress in regard to
them would be neither beneficial nor
becoming, we have abstained, with rare
exceptions, from obtruding upon the
attention of Congress our individual
views upon such questions depending
before it. We say this certainly with
out meaning to impute the slightest de
gree of impropriety to these journals,
at the seat of Government, or elsewhere,
which have thought fit, in the exercise
of their unquestionable right, to pursue
a different course.
Our forbearance from taking part in
the discussion of the questions which
have inevitably resulted from the ac
quisition of vast regions of territory
purchased most dearly by a lavish ef
fusion of the blood and treasure of the
country is, therefore, imputable to
any thing but doubt or indifference as
to the magnitude or consequence of the
questions at issue. On tho contrary,
seeing that our silence has been misin
terpreted, we take occasion .to say,
whilst placing ourselves right upon that
point, that we have no concealments
touching the various propositions before
Congress for settling the slavery contro
versy; in regard to which we are free
to avow that, eschewing ultraism on
that as on most other subjects, it ap
pears to us to be of less importance
which of the plans before Congress
shall succeed, than that some one of
them shall succeed, and that speedily,
We shall cheerfully wclcomo any mea
sure, or any series of measures, (inclu
ding the admission of California into
the Union, with the Constitution which
she has herself formed,) which shall
command majorities in the two Houses
of Congress. Preferring the plan re
commended by the President to Con
gress, in his Message of the 21st of Jan
uary, as well considered, conditional,
and just and offering fewer difficulties
to be overcome than any other that is
likely to succeed we should yet hail
with satisfaction the adoption of any
plan which would do justice to the po
litical claims of California, and at the
same time restore to the minds of the
people of this country the quiet that has
been unhappily disturbed by the peal
of discord which, during the last five or
six months, have been rung out to them
from the Halls of Congress.
Of the several plans which are before
Congress, we do not think that the fate
of the nation or the peace of the coun
try depends upon the choice which shall
be made; and we see no necessity
therefore, for advocating with undue
vehemence or tenacity any one in pre
ferenco to another.

express to the Postoffice at Colossas, ten
miles distant. The expedition entered
the town; and attacked the jail, suppo
sing it to be the barracks. The jail
was guarded by fifteen men, who stood
the fire well. At this moment, troops
were seen crossing the square. They
hailed, and were answered by firing on
the troops. After this, some soldiers
went to the Governor's house, which
was attacked and burned. The house
was well defended; finally the troops

troops being dissatisfied with the warm
reception, and having lost time in get
ting off the wounded and procuring fuel
for the steamer Creole, which was to
return for reinforcements, became dis
heartened, and insisted on going to Key
West; they were closely pursued by the
Spanish War steamer Pizarro, but hap
pily escaped. Just before the Ohio left,
the Pizarro came in with 105 prisoners,
it was said they were mostly Germans
and Irish ; it was said that they were
to be shot that day at 10 o'clock, or at
least one out of every ten, and the re
mainder to be confined in the dungeons
of the Moro Castle.

Great excitement was produced here
last night by the arrest of General
Lopez. The Marshal of the District
made the arrest under the autho
rity of a telegraphic dispatch from
the President of the United States;
both General Lopez and his aid was ar
rested and taken before Judge Nichols
of the U. S. District Court; there being
no evidence against the parties they
were discharged at a quarter before 12
o'clock. The crowd in the court room
was immense, and the decision of the
court was received with much enthu
siasm. Gen. Lopez was escorted to his
lodgings by the crowd; be made a speech
in which he expressed his determination
to carry out bis present project at all
hazards. He is a man of pleasing ap
pcarance and intelligent he made quite
a favorable impression on our citizens.
He left, accompanied by his aid, at 7

Cuban Expedition. The Washing
ton Republic, of the 20th, thus speaks
of the action of the Exexutive in refer
ence to this expedition:
We are informed that the President
of the United States, immediately upon
the receipt of the information, direc
ied orders to be issued for the vessels
of the home squadron, as also for the
steamer Saranac.and frigate Congress,
to proceed forthwith to the island of
Cuba, for the purpose of ascertaining
whether any military force, organized
in tho United Slates, was proceeding
from thence to Cuba for the purpose
of invading that island and revolution
izing the Government; with express in
structions, in the event of such being
the case, to prevent the landing of any
such force, or the carrying out of any
such expedition or enterprise; and with
further instructions, in the event of
a landing having been effected, to pre
vent the landing of any reinforcement,
or of any arms or provisions under the
American flag, intended for such ex
pedition or enterprise. In obedience
to these orders, wo undsrsland that the
steamer Saranac proceeded to sea on
Saturday last, and will probably reach
Cuba by Thursday next, where it is
expected she will meet the German
town, the Albany, and the Vixen.
It is confidently expected that the
whole naval force ordered thither will
reach the island of Cuba before any
considerable number of those engaged
in the enterprise can possibly have ef
fected a landing, and thus prevent a
violation of our treaty obligations, of
amity and peace with Spain.

Correspondence of the St. Louis Intelligencer.1
Washington, May 18.
The compromise remains in statu quo.
Its ardent friends are sanguine; while
even its moderate opponents, predict
defeat with confidence. Future devel
opments will exercise a large, if Dot
controlling influence on the result.
The Southern Senators who have here
tofore excepted to the terms of the ad
justment, have been and will be subjec
ted to a sevcrcjnfluence. The two
from Virginia have already had their
firmness tried by the applipation of in
fluences, which mightbejicafisidered
potential under ordinary circumstance.
After the public position which they
have taken concession would seem to
imply weakness?, without an acknowl
edgment of error. It is hardly to be
supposed, that either Mr. Mason or Mr.
Hunter will make such an admisssion,
and yet it may be reasonably doubled,
whether they can be sustained, without
yielding to the force of public senti
ment, which is evidently opposed to the
extreme groundlassumed.Sby Mr. Cal
houn, and which both claim to repre
sent in a peculiar degree. They may
retreat under convenient modifications.
Indeed this much has already been
hinted, not only as affecting them, but
others of equal importance. The Vir
ginia papers, having committed the
folly of supporting the Nashville Con
vention, and finding themselves aban
doned by the people, would now will
ingly seek a locus paenitentiae, to
retrieve the mistake. Tho compromise
affords the best hope, end it is therefore
adopted. Some, and perhaps, serious
embarrassment, may proceed from the
amendment offered by Mr. Davis, of
Miss., to the pending bill, which sub
stantially asserts, and was intended to
assert, a distinct recognition of the
right to carry slavery into the new
Territories. It has been said, that this
proposition was made with a malicious
purpose to combine the south and to
drive off the non-intervention men of
the North. I shall not undertake to
decide between charges on the one
hand, and contradictions on the kother;
but it is very certain, since Mr. Davis
and other gentlemen who act with him,
have not had their full share of tlio
prominence to which they supposed
themselves entitled, that a spirit of hos
tility lias been manifested, which is
hardly consistent with their past pro
fessions. Their zeal may have assumed
new form, but il is somewhat unex.
LThe late and disastrous news
from California, says the N. Y. Herald,
has ca6t a gloom over the minds of
men, and makes them anxious to realize
their apparent profits before the explo
sion arrives. 1 he enormous enaase-
ments which have been entered int.o
here for the purpose of sending adven
turers to California, from whence little
or nothing in comparison has been re
turned, (the ridiculously exaggerated
reports to the contrary, not withstand
ing) must inevitably produco embar
rassment sooner or later. In many in
stances the loss on shipments have been
75 to 80 per cent, of the cost, and we
know of others where not onlv the
whole invoice was lost, but reclama
tions made here upon tho shippers for
ome SO per cent, over and above.
The Propose New Cent. The
great annoyance of the troublesome and
bungling cent piece is, we are happy
to learn, likely soon to be abated, by
the substitution of a neat end conven
ient littlo coin, about the sizo of a dime
and containing sufficient of the more
precious metal of silver to compensate
for the reduced size. Tho new coin, a
sample of which has been ordered a
our Mint, to be submitted to Cooresa
for approval, has a silvery-copper ap
pearance; and in order effectually to
distinguish it from the gold or silver
coins of similar size, has a hole in the
centre, about one eighth of an inch in
diameter. Tho legends are as fol
lows: Obverse: "U. S. A. One.tenth sil
ver." Reverse: "Cent. 1850."
