The Jackson Siatuc lis Origin To the Editors of the Sun : Gentlemen Your correpon.luni "Ion" who is generally correct, has cotnmittedran error in paying "it is 'to be remem bered that we -are indebted for this monument," (the Jacks n monument) "to the public spirit and liberality of the Jackson Association of this- city, though Congress has contributed to it so much aid as to give it a national character." Let honor be given to those to whom honor is due. While-James K. Polk was President of the United States, a meeting of his Cabinet officers, with the Secretary of the Senate and Clerk of the House of Representatives, was called, and assem bled at the President's house, for the purpose of making. an organization for the erection of an Equestrian Statue of Gen. Andrew Jackson. . The matter was fully discussed, and a committee was then and there organized, consisting of the follow ing gentlemen: Cave Johnson, Amos Kendall, John P. Vau Ness. James Uoban, John W. Maury, Chas. K. Gardner, James E. Dow, Wm. A. Harris; Chas. P. Sengstack, Prancis P. B'.air, John C. Rives, Tho. Ritchie and Benj. B. French. This committee proceeded at once, earnestly to collect contributions for the work, and as soon as a sufficient fund was collected, they employed Mr. Clark Mills to execute the same in bronze. Between that time and the present Messrs. Van" Ness, Hoban.and Dow have deceased, and Mr. Harris, on leaving the country, resigned, and their places were filled by Messrs. John M. McCalla, Geo. W. Hughes, Andrew J. Donelson and Geo. Parker. To the exertions of this committee (done, is all the credit due of giving to the world the magnifi cent statue which was inaugurated on Saturday last. To the wonderful intellect, and ingenuity of Clark Mills, a young American, do we owe tho de signing and forming of the statue. The committee have never yet received.a single dollar from Congress towards making the statue, but the ndest'il on which itwas placed was erected by the Government. , Tue committee have advanced to this artist seve ral thousand dollars over and, above the sum sub scribed for the work, which thoy hope and trust either Congress or the people will reimburse to thorn, in consideration of the splendid monument they have given to the nation. -- ' That you may have a responslble'-name for the entire truth of this statement) I subscribe niyfelf your ob't sorv't. B. B. FRENCH. Tkxas 'Items. By the arrival of the steamship Texas, the New Orleans editors have received Gal veston papers to the 31st ult, one day later than those brought by the Mexico. The following is from the News : On Tuesday evening last, Dr. Grant, whose resi dence is near Washington, on the Bra:os, was shot in Houston by Mr. Anselem Hudson, who was act ing as bar-keepar in the Houston House. Dr. Grant died instantly after receiving the second shot in his body. The particulars arc thus related to us by a gentleman who was there at the lime. A dif ficulty had existed between the parties for some time j)ru"VTOU3, and Dr. Grant is reported to have threatened to cowhide Mr. Hudson, which, having come to his knowledge, Mr. H., ou hearing of Dr. Grant's arrival, went to see him, and they met' in the Old' 'Capitol After1 some words, Dr. Grant drew a pistol and shot at Hudson, the ball passing through the skirt of his coat Hudson immediate ly turned and ran some distance till he had timo to draw his pistol, when he turned and snot Dr. Grant in the le, Dr. G. making a second slot about the same time, without effect Dr. Grant then shot the third time, the ball striking Hudson's finger, but Hudson's second shot was then made, the ball passing through Dr. Grant's body, causing death al most instantly. Hudson forthwith surrendered himself to the "Sheriff, by whom he was taken into custodv. . Our'iiiformation is that Hudson is a-oung man of respectable family, and came into Texas but a few months since. SjTThe Cincinnati Enquirer has the following, relating to the arrest of Capt Gummings, implicated in the Martha Washington affair: Cummings was arrested without tiny difficulty; but his wife on learning of his arrest.and confine ment, rushed in with a double-barreled gun, and would have resisted, but her husband did not de sire any difficulty with the officers Mrs. Cum mings is a sister of the Chapina, and came along with her husband to this city, where she now is. During the trip officer Buren took from her pos seesion a number of files, which had been put into her hands to secure his release. We learn that the Captain was iroued during the night, the marshal offering to have his own arm in the shackles coupled with the prisoner, but the wife preferred that part nership herself, and at night her arm was inserted in one pf the bracelets and her husband in the other. This was entirely her own wish, and ac tually preferred: by ;her. .: t. 'v JF $5--. 5j '. - r asp ; 7Z. Xft tr". NASHVILLE, TENN. .

Corresjyomlence of AWjot Lawrence on the CtayUm-Buhcer lroJShr(m.lness of Lord Palmtrslon Ooerhaulimj thereto ftnd Army Col. innq not able to Leave Tile SniullAToUJdl,6:c. Washington, Jan. 12, 1853. Senator Davis has called for the correspondence between Mr Abbot Lawrence, our late Minister to Great Britain, and Lord Palmerston on the subject of the Chvyton-Bulwcr treaty a correspondence which, when it shall be made public, will, I predict, astonish the country, in that correspondence, I should' not be tho least surprised to find a well written, able letter from the Atnerican Minister to t i t..i i : i.. jKtn.i.-n. 'J little Cupidon," as Princess Lieven used to call the British secretary for foreign affairs, has completely circumvented Mr. Clayton, and had, in fact, shown himself a filibuster in diplomacy, of the first water. Mr. Clayton, not having been "up to snuff," (all European diplomatists take snuff; hence the habit of presenting them with snuff-boxes.) never had the courage to avow his blunders; hence tho muss we are now in. I refer particularly to Mr Lawrence's letter, to show the importance of appointing able men as secretaries of legation. While the foreign relations of our eounUy are thus being thoroughly overhauled, it would, to say the least of it, be prudent also to overhaul our army and navy. Both branches of 'the service are capa ble of great improvement, and Commodore Stock ton's report on reforms in the navy, and General Shields' report on reforms in the navy, cannot too soon receive the attention of both houses. In what state, too, are the military defences of our country, especially those of California! Col. King, I am sorry to sa3r, was not able to day, as was agreed upoiu, to leave here for Norfolk, and Avill consequently miss the regular mail steamer for Havana. This is very much to be regretted; but the weather is too unpropitious. The small note bill has made some progress in the House. With moderation, it may bo carried through. Senator Mason, it is believed, will soon call up his resolutions about Tehuantepec, and Senator Gwinn will speak on the Pacific Railroad, so im portant to the whole country. As far as I can as certain, a majority of both Houses are in favor of the work being doue by the Government x. Washington, Jan. 11. The Clayton and Bui icer Treaty. The Intelligencer contains a statement from J. Bragg, member of Congress, showing that Senator King labored under a misapprehension re garding Mr. Clayton's Bulwer treaty when he made the statement to Mr. Cass. The treaty was ratified by the American Senate, and sent to England, and returned again to the United States with the proposition that it be con sidered as ratified on the part of England with the condition annexed to recognize the title of England to a certain portion of Honduras. Mr. Kin" never saw the proposed provision, but .understood was inserted by Lord Palmerston. 'With such condition, Mr. King said the treaty would not get a single vote in the Senate. Mr. Clayton subsequently said that the provisions had been abandoned, and' he considered the treaty rat ified. Pittsburo, Jun. 18, M- River Geet in the chan- ncl and falling. "Jf.ia now snowing. NEWS ITEMS &.G. A Miraculous Escape froji Death. We learn from the Elkton (Md.) Whig that a shoyt time since, a calathumpian band undertook to annoy a wedding party at the hotel of Mr. Bouchell in that county, and among other things they used an old broken cannon, which was brought in front of the hotel, charged with two pounds of powder, to which a slow match-was attached. The result was the bursting of the piece, and but for the intervening of -a.column supporting the roof "of lKe porch in front of the building, the breech of the gun would have gone directly into the palor window, where some forty or fifty peraons were at the time, a large part of whom were females. The escape was a most miracu Jous one; scarcely a whole window pane was left in the lower- part of the building, the roof in one place was completely lifted from its bed, while several portions of the front porch was much shattered and torn. 25?Thc matter of the pension to the widow of the gallant Gen. Worth wa3. disposed of in the House of Representatives on Wednesday, by aeon currence in the Senate's propositibngranting"$50 a month for life, instead of the original pittance of 530 a month for five years.- 5r"The -Albany Green Street theatre was the scene of much excitement on Monday morning of last week. It appears that a dispute as to the title has arisen between Mr. Preston, the former pro prietor, and Madame De Marquerrittes, the present lessee. Mr. Preston, with a large body of men, took posession of the theatre, blockading the doors, windows, fcc, and arming themselves with the "properties," such as lockless muskets, rusty sabres, and the like. The aid of the police was invoked by the Madame, and she eventually ousted tho occu pants and regained possession. ggT" Advices one day later have been received from Mexico. No determination had been arrived at in regard to the Tehauntepec question. No Minister of Foreign Affairs has been appointed in -place of Scnor Yanez. The Senate has passed the bill of amnesty to the parties who were implicated in the revolutionary movement of Rebolledo. The benefits of the amnesty are extended to ixllpronun ciados who shall lay down their arms in a certain time. ' - New York, Jan. 12. The Astor Opera House has been purchased for the New York Mercantile library association. New York, Jan. 12, p. m.

The court assembled again at noon, when officer Bruen brought into the court room Captain Cummings who had been arrested some 300 miles up Red river. Judge Walker said that Captain Cummings would abide by the result of the examination just closed. The commissioner, Mr. Wilcox, then pronounced his opinion; he did not go into detail on the evi dence, but said his opinion was that there was prob ably cause for believing that the-offens.e charged had betn committed; he therefore decided that the de fondants be held to bail Judge Walker then spoke in favor of the court reducing the bonds. The court then announced that the bpnds Arould be graduated. Mr. Cole and Mr. Kissane were required to give bonds of $10,000 each; the two Chapins and Capt Cummings, $G,000 each; and Mr. Holland $5,000, with two responsible freehold securities, for their appearance at the next term of the United States Court It is thought that the defendants will probably give the security required. IggT'Later dates from- Tampico have been re ceived at New Orleans by the schooner J. Trumap. The Picayune gives the following summary of news: A party of Califomians, who were at Tampico, had taken passage on the schooner, and were go ing on board, when they were seized by the Mexi can authorities, and their money ($5,000) confis cated for non-payment of duties. The revolution appears to be spreading with un exampled rapidity over Tamaiilipas and the adjoin ing States. The infection has reaohed the regular army, and the leading officers had pronounced in favor of the revolutionists. Among these are Col Casanova, at Victoria, Col Cruz, at Camargo, and Col. Teuorio, at Sierra Gorda. The papera are filled with accounts of these and other prouuncia mentos, and the El Tamaulipeco confidently pro .nounced the government of Senor Arista as cioomed. v . Juan Jose de la Garza7Provincial Governor of the State of Tamaulipas, publishes aiialldressTo his fellow-citizens, in which he justifies the revolution and recommends Don Ramon Prieto as the proper person to assume the duties and responsibilities of Governor. Prieto is the "person who ran against and defeated Cardenas in the' gubernatorial contest. The latter set aside the election, seized upon the reins of Government, and caused the present move ment in the State. We see nothing in the papers confirmatory of the reported seizure of the person of Cardenas, and his being taken prisoner to Tampico. The Tamaulipeco, of the 22d, says that the com manding general was organizing a force to march upon Matamoras, and that in a few days they would be upon the road. The editor adds that this is the only point of consequence in the State of Tamaulipas that had not seconded the plan of Tam pico. On the 21st the ayuntamiento of Tuxpam, in tho State of Vera Cruz, pronounced against the exist ing Government. Col. Mejia and Vega had joined the revolution ists, and the Tamaulipeco says it is assured that within a few days a force of 1,500 men would be organized under tho command of these distin guished chiefs, which would march to occupy San Luis and the other States of the interior. : 3gpWe find the following extraordinary state ment in the New Orleans Delta of the Gth in stant : The St. James Explosion. In the prosecution against the second engineer of the St James, in the United States Circuit Court, one feature of tho defence raised is entirely new, and has not been made known to the public. The pilot, in his ex amination, expressed the opinidh that there had been no actual explosion of the boilers, but that some thing foul had been done by persons interested in driving the St James off the lake. The account, to which this part of the evidence, and the testi mony of the watchman, give a coloring, and on which the defence relies although no positive tes timony supports it is, that logs of wood were filled with powder, and well stopped up, so as to escape attention; that, as soon as the logs came in contact with the fire, they exploded and displaced the boil el's, causing the crash above. This is one version; the defence would, at all events, urge that the ac cident was caused by the agency of gunpowder. New York, Jan. 18. Flour 9000 bbls State at $5,50; Oh?6 $5 G2a5 65.

Our neighbor likens Mr. Clayton to a hawk, and democratic Senators to un lucky jays, whose ungodly teasing had annoyed hi3 chicken majesty. The article is not political It is entirely ornithological. As an argument, it has no pretensions whatever. As a description of the habits, traits, plumage, &c, of hawks and jay birds, it is, however, entitled to notice Our neigh bor is decidedly a versatile genius. He gives a pre fect poulterers description of the jay-bird feathers, tail, size, age, habits and fate. We are not aston ished afcthisjdevelopment. Our neighbor is now I up Salt River, antln the absence of other employ ments, it is quite natural that he should amuse his leisure with ornithological mvastigations. He tried last summer and fall to catch votes for SeoU. We wish him better hick in -catching' iay-birds on the The likeningtjSr a whig Sec retary of State to a hawk is not inappropriate. 33y reference to Webster's 'enforced dictionary it will be seen that a hawk is a bird wiiich' bag a "cloven tongue," is "rapacious" and "feeds onbitcb and small animals." Whig secretaries liave pretty generally a "cloven tongue." The history of the Galphin cabinet of which ilr. Clayton wa..i mem ber shows that they -nre "rapacious," and no one can doubt that they "feed on" the public crib. Will our neighbor not try his hand at similes again ? The Banner also contains a call upon C. Bim ick, Esq., of tliia city, to become a candidate for the legislature. The call assures the public and Mr. Diraick that,-if a candidate, he will receive the sup port of "many voters." This "many voters" is a very busybody. He seems to be the general saperin tendant and chief manager of the whig pari-. He calls out governors by the half dozen. It was but the other day that he called out ilr. McEvQjn for Congress. And yet no one has yet found out who this important personage is. Lika Junius liis por trait is covered with a veil, or as our etessia friend of the Gazette would express it, "iktt nommis umbra." We are inclined to think that "many voters" is some dcviliali locofoco, who is always quizzing the whig party, and "poking fan" at them. Iknh XIc luwen and Diuiick have one recommendation. They go it "blind" for Jones, aiid are unykrWing, uncom promising, inveterate, hardened partisans. They have about as" much conc;ption of a denVociatic idea as a snail has of the world., outatde. .of lm nr row shell. Wu should not be surprised if they were candidates. Ami as they realljhe taiunt, and nevfr failud to hte the mark for whjggery, right or wrong, they perhaps deserve it. The Gazette contains a compfinteni&ry . notka of non. E. II.
