Charleston Mercury. Latb Fad TiAS.--Th Texiari steam ship-of-war Zavala1, Capt. Ileritac, arrived at New Orleans on the 18th front Galves tn, bringing papers from thnt place to the 21nd March. The New Orleans Bul letin of the 29th inst., in alluding to the news brought by this arrival, says: "Emigration is on the increase; and those who come, aro not the vicious, the idle, the rapacious speculator, but mostly men who wish to. settle permanently in the country; and while they seek their own, contribute to advance the general pros perity. In Galveston, a hundred build ings were going upj embracing hotels; academies and private dwellings. One or two cotton presses were in contemplation: and any estimate of the probable improve ment of the approaching summer might ex cite ridicule from persons abroad. Such an animated appearance as its harbor pre sented, would not do discredit to some of the important seaports of the U. States.

FROM THE FRONTIER. It ncems that there has been a. great excitement in New Brunswick and Nova Scotia in consequence of the course of Maine. The Provincial Assembly of the latter have voted eight thousand med,aod one hundred thousand pounds, to aid New Brunswick in maintaining exclusive juris diction over the disputed territory. The New York correspondent of the National Intelligencer imputes this excessive zeal io the expectation, on the part of the Pro vincials, that it will produce a vast expen diture of money on the part of Great Brit ain, in lbt aectien of her dominions.

A QUAKER WOMAN'S SERMON. Dear, Friends. There are three things I very much wonder at; the first is, that childred should be so foolish as to throw up stones, brickbats, and clubs into fruit trees to knock down fruit if they would let it alone it would fall itself. Tho second is that men should be so foolish and even so wicked as to go to wat and to kill one another; if they would only let one anoth er alone, they would die of themselves: and the third and last thing which I won der ot is, that young men should be so un wise as to go after the young women, if they would only stay at homo the young womeh would come nfter them.

Harmony or feeling. The motly aelf-etyied Whigs! whether Maaonic or Anti-MaBonie, Abo. lition or Anti-Abolition, Conservative or Feder al, are all opposed to each other on the funda mental principlea of national policy.

Having no-great princi ple round which they revolve, and to which they are attached, they are tossed about by ev ery wind of doctrine.

It is an unpleasant task, but on that we are of ten called ori to perform, to expose the ahame ful conduct of, and course pursued by tbeae or gans of federalism. The present falleri condi tion of the federal proa i ao Well known that it ia now scarcely necessary te ay a word on the subject. Call that party, compoeed of federal ism, abolitionism andapoatatee from democracy, expect to convince the people that they are de serving confidence, w hen they describe each oth er in the following manner7 If their leatimo ny ia good for any thing, they are fii aubjecta for the Penitentiary or the gallows. The fede ral editors know, and eaa describe each other, and those acquainted with their eharactors must own that they are drawn to the life. In proof of thia wa submit the subjoined sketch, by thcineclve. The American 'by the Evening Star. "The American 'never fights for pay Probably not. Some soldiers are Hot worth pay; but tha American strikes for higher nnd more daneerous object; and seeks to influence tho proceedings of the whig le gislnture and the action of tho common council, tor the benefit or a very large concern in this city, which is of more con- sequence) to the American than the mere possesion ot omce. (CT ne sate tnit in the war made on the banks by the last whig legislature, in tho uncalled tor attacks on the Bank of the United States and its agency in London, in the studied coldness and ill-will of the common council towards old Democrats, which last year nearly lost us the city ; and in saddling the whig party with the curse of abolition. These are the influences ofa oblige, of which the New York American is the head a gras ping at power and influence, nut the ap plication for a solitary office." That's the way one Whig editor talks to a nother! And again: mericanby the Madisoniani "Tit New York Amikicax.Now thnt the election has terminated in New York in the success f the anti-sub-Treas-uary party, the paper, which professes to be opposed to the administration, has un dertaken to prescibeMr. Tallmadge, to whom the opposition are mainly indebted for their overwhelming majorities. We are not surprised at this, nor do we regret it. It is the natural ebullition of its ma lignat fanaticism, ultra federalism, aboti tionism,tnd its organic disease of imprac ticability. We do not regret it, because it will hasten the termination of what lit. tlo remnant of political influence that pa per Wore possessed. It will bring it to its proper level of political contempt." &c. MWbi! on the subject of remini scenses of the past, it might as well have extended ita recollection to the Dartmoor prison massacre, and rafresh itself with a home eiample of the pertinency arid pro priety of reminicences. If it has discor- ered one inianjc of 'iniHfortune, synony mous with cairns,' It would then have dis covered auother synonymous with inhu manity and treason. But we leave it to the mercy and justice, of its city cotcmpo-raries-" How these pinke of modern Wbiggery lash each otbea! It is well tbat there it no decent person concerned. We care little which whipa sa honeat man would have ao chance with any of them. The Cburier and Epquirer is thus raped by the Madisonian. "We look for some other cause for this sudden exubriance of venom, beyond tho ostensible defence of the American: Else why doea the voice break forth at this lato hour, like the psalm from the long nose of the countrv chorister after the choir had ceased? The truth ia the Conservative platform will as little accommodate loco foco whigs ai loco foeo lories, but is broad enough, as tne Evening sstar justly, re marks, to sustain every republican o'98, and the people of the Union art beginning so to understand it." The Madisonian by the Courier and Enq. "The forgoing extracts from the Madi sonian. havo been lying ori our table for some davs: end while we experience no other feeling than contempt for the folly which could prompt the editor of that pa- iier to assume the tone and bearing ol a eador and dictator ol the Whig party and Whig presses, we have entertained doubts whether the article in question was wor thy of a passing remark. Upon reflection however, tre cannot took npon the Madi sonian except As the mere puirpet of those who tstabtishtd it, and by whose purses and countenance tt hres, speaks; and has its being!" "The arrogance of tlie for years past, is equally proverbial; arid how be hold the Madisonian the offspring of charily, and dependent from day to day upon the bountu of tts parti) impudently impugn the motives of whig presses on subjects' with which it has no concern and which are in fact, beyond its ability properly lo understand, or appreciate Wheh a Printer was to be elected to the present Congress; we wero in Washing ton, add the editor of the Madisonian knows how much or how little we had to do with Mi success. Tbat contest isttill fresh in the minds of our readers: hut appears that the Madisonian editor has managed to forget that although he re ceived the Whig Vote arid thereby the ap pointment, not one out of twenty ot those who supported himj knew who hn was, or took even the trouble to enquire whether ha had svsr isndand any eervKO (' the party or country, or whether he wns enpa hie or not of penning as editorial."

Their consort of ac tion ia aatoniahing indeed!!! Dikalca.nions. With a view of prejudicing the people against the President of their choice, and those officer nominated by him and placed in offioe by and with the advice and consent of the Senate) the federal papers are with more spunk than prudence more feeling than philo ophyj (for it acema they have forgot Bond's Speech on thie eubject, aad ita effect generally oo the last tall election, eapecially in kia own State,) building their hopes of .auccess, a they alwaya do, on the ignorance cf the people. In proof of tbia poaition, we refer to the mis-named Whig print, in nearly all of them can bo found the exaggerated and false statements of the fe deral bullies in Congreaa. To prove the base natality and deceit thua attempted to be played off on public credulitythe uafounded false hoods thua charged it ie only nocesearv to refer to the speech of B. S. Prcnties, the coiripcer of Wise, add abetter ia the murder of Cilley. Prentiss succeeded in making out a few hours of abuaive harangue on the defalcation of Col. Spencer. But Spencer, it appear, from a letter aigncd by Levi Woodbury, IS NOT and NEVER WAS a defaulter on the Government book. Will those minion of federal Whiggery, who, to gratify tha malice of their hearts by traduc ing the officers of the government, gave curren cy to thia falsehood of Prentiaa', contradict it? As lovera of truth they are in duty bennd ao to do. But a lie well atuck to with that party ia a good aa truth. e allude to the caae of Spencer aa on in point, and could ehow many otbere. How lonir will the people allow auch men aa Prentiae and Wiae to waate the public treasure in anch a man ner? Do they aend men te Congreaa to atate talaebooda and make false charge againat in no. cent and honest men? We purpose giring Woodburv's letter and further remarks in our next, and will conclude thia by the annexed from one of oar exchange papers: MORE FACTS FOR THE PEOPLE ON DEFAULTS.
