At the present session of our Circuit Ojurt, three negroe slaves named Dick, IIry and Aleck, who were imprison ed sometime since, upon the charge of mur dering their master, Mr. Theophilus Pritchard, were found guilty by the jury on last Mon day. The boy Peter, who was also implica ted, was declared innocent of the crime. The case of Samuel P. Peers, charged with the murder of a negro man belonging to Ransom Sturdivant ot this county is set for Friday next. The case of the State against Wilson Tur ner, upon the charge of murdering John Con ley (both attaches of Dan Rice's Circus) is set for Saturday next. Congressional. In the Senate on the 24th inst., Mr. Benjamin presented a petition from the Legislature of Louisiana, relative to the annexation of Cuba. In presenting, he stated that it could be proven that the Afri canization of the Island was now actually progressing. A warm debate took place on the subject. The Nebraska Bill was taken up, read twice and discussed. The House were engaged in discussing the Pacific Rail Road and Deficiency Bills. Rencontre. A difficulty lately occurred in Aberdeen, in this State, between Col. Bunch late Secretary of the State Senate, and a Mr. Fannin, which, resulted in the death of the latter. The circumstances of the case show that a deadly animosity existed between the parties, and that the destruction of each other had been aautu ally determined ttpon. Birpture with Spain- From our late dispatches from Spaiw, re ceived by this government, it is- stated upon good authority tha a difficulty with that country is imminent. Mr. Soule has peremptorily demanded the recall of the Captain General of Cuba and a larjre indemnity for the seizure of the Black Warrior. t The Spanish Government has de clined to accede to Mr. Soule's demand and the conclusion now is at Washington that a collision must soon occur. The Union, in a recent article, seems to speak from authority on this subject, and its views upon the existing relations of the two countries, are believed to be those of the ad ministration. It says : " We are quite free to state and in terms so emphatic and unequivocal as to admit of no misinterpretation that if am pie satisfaction is not allowed for the pirati cal seizure of the Black Warrior, we shall advocate an immediate blockade of the is land." This is language as we think highly per tinent to the case in point, and if the admin istration will act in the manner that this re mark leads us to- suppose, no more complaint on account of unnecessary delay and empty diplomacy will be heard in our fend. Our relations with Cuba have engaged! the attention of the authorities at Washington for a long time, and have lately grown into a state of perplexity and annoyance. The avowed intention of Spain and her al lies to prevent the acquisition of that island by the United States at all hazards African ization if needs be is sufficient, and we are glad to see has had the effect to arouse our government to a sense of the impending danger, and to induce the Executive to adopt measures to defeat this corrupt policy. Spain has no longer an American conti nental interest, and it costs her so much to guard the island of Cuba, that nothing short of a sale will indemnify her for her losses. Cuba is not necessary to the maintenance of her European independence, and will be the cause of endless squabbles and outbreaks be tween the two nations. To the United State, in the interests of peace and com merce and domestic tranquility, it is indis pensable. Let us have Cuba by all mean by pur chase if possible, if not, by open invasion, and that, too, in defiance of Europe. Its ge ographical position" is such that we are bound to have it So let the crisis come, the Ad lninistration wili be sustained. The Territorial Bills. The public anxiety is at rest upon one rreat question. After months of discussion and angry debate, with an occasional perso nal collision, and a frequent use of intemper ate nnd unguarded language, this great ques tion has been brought to a successful issue. In defiance to the fanatical ravings of the abolitionists, and the praiseworthy appeals of distinguished individuals composing the op position upon different grounds; notwithstan ding the wrath which has been poured out upon the heads of the friends of the Union, and the heavy tide of denunciation which they have had to buffet from the first, Congress has refused to sanction the usurpa tion of unwarranted authority, and pronoun ced against encroachments upon State Rights Too much credit cannot be awarded to those faithful champions who so gallantly defend ed and maintained the people's rights in this late struggle. The disadvantages under which they labored were great. Petitions and re monstrances were circulated and sent up to deter them from their steady purpose.- The author and other able vindicators of the measure were burnt in effigy, scoffed at, stigmatised, nd otherwise abused with wild savage ferocity, and a deep implacable hatred hardly of this world. Yet amidst this war of elements, this storm that so sorely vexed the waves of debate, these brave and honest representatives held out with a firm and unshaken resolution. The crises, after many terrible and dismal forebodings arrived, and the result shows how manfully they met it. The constitution has triumphed over fac tion, law has been proclaimed victorious over anarchy, the sovereignty of right is maintain ed, while factious and unprincipled disorgan izes have been driven out of the arena and u hurled with hideous ruin and combustion down." The countrv has reason to exult over this Constitution triumph. The rights that are hereby secured to the people are legitimate and just. Among which may be mentioned the removal of the Missouri Compromise re striction, by which a prerogative is given to the inhabitants of the South to carry into the Territories of Nebraska and Kansas such personal property as they may deem expedi ent without prohibition by Congress or any other power, save that invested in the people The bill provides that when these Territo ries shall seek admission into the Union as States they shall be received with or without slavery as their Constitution may prescribe at the time of their admission. The master and the slave are thus benefitted. The mas ter with a large number of slaves, cramped for land in a country where perhaps land is dear, who desires to do a good part by his slaves, between whom and himself there are mutual feelings of protection, and affection ate submission, may break up to emigrate and settle upon a better land where he can live in the better enjoyment of the comforts of fife. As the black population increases, and it is increasing very fast, this measure is of infinite advantage to them, as supplying territory which will favor a progressive im provement in their condition and circum stances. The further agitation of the coun try upon this subject, it is to be hoped will be silenced by this enactment,, which of it self will be a consummation worth the toil and trouble it cost to achieve if. The New York correspondent of the Baltimore Sun, says : u There is said to be no truth in the statement that the late J as. IIol ford, the rich London banker and merchant, had willed his large property to the Prince of Wales. The lawyer of the deceased has informed his agent here that he had left his estate to his nephews and nieces, the sons and daughters of his brother, previously de ceased, and who resided in England. A jury in the Superior Court have returned a verdict of $3,600 against the Hudson River railroad company for causing the death of a gentleman named Button, in November 1853. The case of Edwin Forrest, the American tragedian, against N. P. Willis, for libel, was on the common pleas calender posponed for a day or two. Damages were laid at $20 000. The case of James Collier, late collector of San Francisco, has been concluded by a spec ial verdict, which is to be taken, for final ac tion, to the U, S. Supreme Court. The Pennsylvania!! while treating the claims of Mr. Everett to the authorship of Mr. Webster's Hulseman letter in a pleasant and, humorous way, tells a story which it avows to be on good authority, of a more singular character than that of Mr. Everett's claim It says, soon after the letter was receiv ed by Mr. Hulseman, Mr. Webster met him at a party, where they conversed good hu moredly abut it. The Austrian Ambassador had admitted to Mr. Webster he could not reply satisfactorily to the letter, when Mr. Webster laughingly proposed to write the reply for him. the offer was accepted, and Mr. Webster actually replied to bis own let ter. Godey for June is in advance of all contemporaries. The energy of this popu lar proprietor is astonishing, and his spirit of emulation commendable, because it is with out envy. The present number contains eight full page plates, one line engraving, one colored fashion plate, 100 pages of reading, md 66 contributions, forming altogether one of the best nos. ever issued. Price 3 00 a year. The Utah BUI. The object of this Bill is to establish the office of surveyor-general in Utah, to grant donations of land to actual settlers, and for other purposes. 0 The House of Representatives was lately engaged in the discussion of the principles and merits of this Bill, and some curious tacts were elicited upon the moral condition )f some portion of the inhabitants of that territory. A proviso in the Bill designed to regulate the donations of land contained a provision to the effect that no land should be granted to those person who had evinced a disregard of the moral usage by having more than one wife. The proviso reads: "Provided, that the benefits of this act shall not extend to any person who shall now or at auy time hereafter, be the husband of more than one wife." This bill and proviso says the Wash ington Sentinel gave rise to a variegated and interesting debate, in which law, politics, morality, religion, State rights, abolitionism, single blessedness, and double and quadruple blesssedness were all touched upon. Many members participated in the debate mem bers from all sections, and of every hue and variety of opinion. A fact often asserted before, and as often denied, was brought to light. That fact is, that the Mormons are Turks in all save the matter of wearing turbans and eating opium. Their respect for the softer sex betrays them into the error of having more wives than the laws of civilized nations allow. They are polvgamists. The practice of having a plurality of wives was denounced in language of the strongest sort. Several serious questions are involved in the bill. One is : as polygamy is a part of the religion of the Mormons in Utah, and as the Constitution allows religious freedom, has Congress the right or power t interfere in the premises? In our opinion if Congress wishes to refrain from extending to these po lygamists the benefits of the bill ii question, it would be safer to abandon the scheme al together, for it would certainly be against the spirit of the Constitution to make such in vidious distinctions as the proviso contem plates. It is opposed to the doctrine of non intervention for Congress to essay to correct and regulate the conduct of the people in regard to morality and religion. The enact ment of provisions of this kind properly be longs to domestic legislation. If Congress can say that a man shall not receive land be cause he has two wives, may aot Congress say that a man shall not receive land because he is guilty of any other domestic immoral ity or abhors the Maine liquor law ? May not Cowrress discriminate bet ween classes ? and is not class legislation unconstitutional ? The War. We gather the following news of the eas tern war from N. O. Picayune : "The Turks, in engagements which have taken place near Kalafat, have captured three important points. The Russians are reported to have attack ed Silistria, but to have been repulsed with great loss. BOMBARDMENT OF ODESSA. The bombardment of Odessa is reported to have taken place on the morning of the 23d trlt. The accounts of the attack are given given with great particularity in the papers brought by Atlantic Nine steamers, it appears, belonging to the allied fleets, took up a' position before' the forts commanding the entrance to the har bor, and immediately commenced throwing bombs and rockets on the forts and the city at the same time. The English and French Admirals had previously demanded the surrender of the Russian ships in the harbor, and it was upon the refusal of this demand that the bombard ment commenced. An attempt was made to land 18,000 men, but it failed. Prince HologroflTs Palace was entirely de stroyed daring the bombardment. Four English frigates weresJiadly damaged during the attack. The fleets, after this, were to cruise off Se bastopol, for the purpose of preventing the egress of the Russian fleet. The city of Odessa is entirely in ruins, and nine Russian vessels were destroyed. The announcement of the bombardment has been officially made. At latest accounts it was rumored that the Russian fleets had sailed out of Sebastopol to meet the allied fleets. Another account says the the Russian and allied fleets met near Sebastopol, but the British fleet showing fight, the Russian squadron retreated. The Black Sea is said to be covered with vessels belonging to the allied fleets. At the same time the coasts are strictly watched. The Russian communications by sea, as far as Odessa, are reported completely cut off. Thecomjbined fleets left Odessa on the 26th, after the bombardment of the place. The battery was completely destroyed. One of the nine hips destroyed, reported as Russian, subsequently proved to have been an Austrian. They were burnt. The effect of the rockets and shells used in the bombardment, and the precision with which they were thrown is said to have been terrible. The bombardment was continued for ten hours. Mr. Everett has resigned his seat in the United States Senate from Massachusetts. Anti'Slavery Publications. We observe from the proceeding of the General Conference at Columbus, that the Methodist Church South contemplates the establishment of a Book Concern. Tho de bate on this measure was conducted with ability, and with an anxious solicitude for the distinctive interests of the Church. The prevalence of an active and zealous southern spirit among the Ministry of this powerful christian community, affords an auspicious indication of the unity of southern sentiment. The particular measure bv which they propose to give practical effect to their patriotic zeal, commends itself to our own judgment by its propriety and efficiency. Tho people of the South have not beeu sufficiently awake to the evil influence of a corrupt literature in perverting and vitiating public sentiment in respect to slavery. Many of tho most eminent British writers, yielding to the impulses of a fictitious phil anthropy, have condemned Southern slavery, with but little effect, however; for they ad dress their writings to minds that are too mature and reflecting to be fettered by the dictum of a great name. Neither is tho sen timent of the South at all corrupted by books of an avowed abolition tendency. A wri ter of great ability recently undertook to produce a work which should inflame the passions of the literary class against slavery. With this view the resources of the imagina tion were drawn upon to complete and inten sify the picture of slavery, and what was wanting in fact to convict the South of the atrocities of a barbarous despotism, fiction undertook to supply in a tale of pathetic suffering and inhuman guilt. Uncle Tom's Cabin was the wonder and the talk of the hour. It was read with an avidity of which the history even of fiction affords no other example. Very few intelligent persons in the South can be found who have not smiled at its fanaticism and its exaggerated state ments, at the same time that they admired the dramatic skill and iterest of its story. But the book made no permanent impression even in the North, while at the South it was never regarded as of any higher character than a clever novel. The conservative reac tion of public opinion at the North was not arrested by the eloquence of Mrs. Stqwe. The Missouri restriction will be repealed, and fugitive Elizas will be recovered by the effi cacy of the law for therecapture of runaw ay slaves. The passage of the Nebraska bill at tests the effect of Uncle Tom's Cabin on the popular mind of the North. The class of writings from which the South has most to apprehend, are school- books and works of relierious instruction. The poison of abolition is dangerous only when administered insidiously and to feeble intellects. The relations between the North and the South are very analogous to those which subsisted between Greece and the Roman Empire after the subjugation of Achaia bv the consul Mummius. The dignity and en ergy of the Roman character, conspicuous in war and in politics, were not easily tamed and adjusted to the arts of industry and lite rature. The degenerate and pliant Greeks, on the contrary, excelled in the handicraft and polite professions. We learn from the vigorous invective of Juvenal, that they were useful and capable of servants, whether as pimps or professors of rhetoric. Obsequious, dexterous and ready, the versatile Greeks monopolized the business of teaching, pub lishing and manufacturing in the Roman Em pfre allowing their masters ample leisure for the service of the State, in the Senate or in the field. The people of the Northern States of this Confederacy exhibit the same aptitude for the arts of industry. They ex cel as clerks, mechanics, and tradesmen, and they have monopolized the business of teach ing, publishing and peddling. The school-books whicli northern teachers compile, are frequently filled with abolition sentiments, and they exert a potent influence on the weak and impressible mind of youth. A few Southern teachers, having at heart the interests of the South, have proposed a convention of the members of their profes sion in Virginia, with a view to the selection and publication of books proper for Southern schools. The enterprise is laudable, and we do not see why energetic Southern men may not carry it out. Some of the religious societies whose hou ses of publication are located in Northern cities have been converted into instruments of anti-slavery propagandism. In tracts of a purely religious character, abolition senti ments are interpolated, and diffused through the South. This characteristic achievement of Yankee cunning, has suggested to the General Conference of the Methodist Church South the necessity of the establishment of a Book Concern, which being under -the con trol of Southern men, will be made an in- strument for the diffusion of a sound South- ern sentiment. The administrative talent of Smith, Early and Ralston, affords a sufficient guarantee that the scheme, if undertaken w ouwcsseiuijy carried out. une in stance of triumphant experiment would in-1 ?0R tlie recovery of a mule nitation, and ultimately all the tJtf!P thie(- duce mutation, and ultimatelv elirr v ious communities of the South would be-! come the efficient champions of Southern interests. Richmond Enquirer, The difficulty between Messrs. Hunt and Craig is now understood to have blown over. The New York Tribune the leading abolition journal of the Union, uius spew. Thomas H. Benton, the " Nestor ot ireeooin. During the thirty-six hours session, this any voted on questions of the most frivolous im port, solely with the purpose to retard, ana possible, ultimately defeat the passage of the territorial bills, but he did not seem to carry along with him that influence which the Tri bune supposes him to possess. LiKe uuu dreds of others, who have abandoned the democratic party, he could accomplish much when within the pale of the party, but out side of it, ho is utterly powerless and harm less : "There is one man in Congress who, as we believe, has it in his power to defeat the Ne braska bill. That man is Thomas H. Benton. What is wanted in the House is an idomita ble leader of the minority. There are enough to follow a resolute man of the standing and prestige of Mr. Benton. He might save the county the inevitable convulsions which will follow this insensate measure, would he but rise to the moral grandeur of interposing the power of the minority in its most stringent form. Let him but exhibit, on this occasion, those rare qualities of resistance possessed by him over every other public man of our time and def vit this measure, and he will insure to himself the highest honors of a grateful people, and fitly erown his long political ca reer with an act of high historical grandeur and enduring fame." Mas. Hayks. The trial of this woman for the murder of Dr. Lurener in New York, has l.rniHrht. to a close, and the iury have o ' returned a verdict of acquittal. Tho N -w York Mirror, says that the jury balieved the deceased was murdered, but that in their opinion, there was no evidence to fix the guilt on Mrs. Hayes. It seems to be what they would call in Scotland, a case "not proven.' The Stomach prepares the elements of the bileand the blood ; and if it does the work feebly and in perfectly, liver disease 13 the certain re sult. As soon, therefore, as any affection of the liver is perceived, we may be sure that the de gestive organs are out of order. The first thing to be done, is to administer a specific which will act directly upou the stomach the main spring of the animal machinery. For this pur pose we can recomnviud Hooflano's German Bitters, prepared by Dr. C. M. Jackson, Phila delphia. Acting as an alterative and atonic, it strengthens the digestion, changes the con dition of the blood and thereby gives regulari ty Jo the bowels. WORMS! WORMS! CCF A great many learned treatises have been written, explaining the origin of, and classifying the worms generated in the human system. Scarcely any topic of medical science has elici ted more acute observation and profound re search ; and yet physicians are very much divi ded in opinion on the subject. It must be ad mitted, however, that, after all, a mode of ex pelling these worms, and puryfying the body from their presence, is of more Value than the wisest disquisitions as to the origin. The expel ling agent has at length been found Dr. Mc- Lane's Vermifuge is the much sought after spe cific, and has already superceded all o'her worm medicines, its efficacy being universally ac- iinowlciied by medical practitioners. fcPurchasers will please be careful tn 8sk for Da Mc LANES CELEBRATED VERMIFUGE and take none else.

When it attacKi, its rapiu prujjrew of a few hour la often the loss of life ; in num berless cases, by the tlie time a physician can reach the patient, his skill will be unavailing. These considerations have induced the preparer of the SOUTHERN ANTIDOTE to give it thia publicity ; he is well satisfied of its efficacy as a remedy against Cholera, snd the numerous and influential testimonials which he ha received from persons of known respectability, warrants him iu pronouncing it the moat valuable medi cine for the cure of Cholera, Diarrhrea, Cholera Morbus, Dysentery, snd summer complaint of children, that lias yet been presented4to the pub lic. It is not deemed necessary to publish more than the following testimonials, the number and respectability of the names being consider ed ample to satisfy all that the Southern Anti dote is a tried remedy ; and fcas proved itself eminently successful iu the most dangerous and varied forms of bowel affection common to the Southern country, from Cholera down to the ordinary summer complaint of cnildrrn. HiD8 Co., Miss., June 30, 1652. Dr. M. Emanuel, Dear Sir. In reply to yours, inquiring under date of June 22l. as to what effect (compared with other remedies,) I used your Southern An tidote for Cholera, when that disease lately pre vailed on my plantation on Deer Creek, I take pleasure in assuring you that I consider it in comparably superior to any other. On the breaking out ol Cholera, I was but scantily sup plied ; and feel assured that with an abundant supply, and more confidence in its t fficaey than 1 then had, I should have arrested several cases which afterwards proved fatal. 1 have the mote confidence in its virtues, as I used it in my own case with the most satisfactory results. If my experience be worth anything to the public, I most heartily recommend your Southern Anti dote to the notice of all persons having negro property iu the valley. Verv respectfully, C. B. HARRISON. Vicksbckg, July G, 1852. Dr. M. Emaxuel, Dear Sir: I have used your Southern Anti dote on my plantation with great success for several years, not only when Cholera was pre vailing, but in bowel complaints generally at tended with tormina, griping, 6cc. In travel ing to mv plantation on Deer Creek and back, I have found great relief from the use of it my self. 1 always keep it on hand and attribute the surcesson my plantation to the early use of it in affections of the bowels of adults or in fants. The Cholera has prevailed twice in my neighborhood, that is year before last and about one month ago: in all the time 1 have only lost one case, and after the precaution of using cis tern water. I regard the timet v use ot the south ern Antidote as one great reason of my success Yours very respect! u I ly, H. R. WEST. Q3 Testimonial in favor of the Southern An tidote.
