Smith: In case the Judiciary bill now before Congress should pass, the friends of this distinguished gentleman intend to urge the President to appoint him to the Circuit Court Bench in this State. JT The Washington Union of the 10th inst., states thnt our difficulties with Spain re main unadjusted, and that all rumors ns to any change in the policy of the Administra lion are fabulous. The Black Warrior case w hether amicably adjusted or not, will have no effect upon the intentions of the government in regard to the acquisition of Cuba. The refusal of Spain to vest sufficient power in the Colonial Govern ment as to enable it to adjust all difficulties with the United States, independent of the home government, together with the manifes ted intention of applying the Afrn-inization scheme to the aland, and which is a! ledge d to be in actual process of execution, constitute the casus belli. JSP" The J une number of the American Cotton rianter, being the first of the second volume of a monthly journal published at Montgomery, Ala., devoted to improved plan tation economy, manufactures, mechanic arts &c.j has been received. Although recently established, the real worth and merit of this periodical is sufficiently attested by the de gree of excellence and popularity to which it has already attained. Terms, l per year.

The people of this mina ture State are in much tribulation at this time. They consider that the passage of the territorial bills was a grievous sin and that they are somewhat culpable for allowing Con gress to pass them. Accordingly it has bepn resolved that the colony of Providence Plan tations shall not enjoy their accustomed re creations on the 4th of July next, but shall instead thereof hear the bells of the city of Providence tolled during that day, and that shackcloth and ashes, penance, humiliation and low diet are to be added to this infliction. The Washington National Monument has reached the height of 154 feet, costing about $230,000. W The Washington Star, which is be lieved to be generally reliable, says it has Reason now to believe that the special com mission to tho Court of Madrid, will be ap pointed, and that the 'distinguished gentlemen named in connection with it, will be tendered the appointment of commissioners." The gentlemen alluded to are the Hon. Geo. M. Dallas, of Penn., and Hon. Howell Cobb, of Ga. An application to Congress for provis ion for the appointment of these commission erg will be made at an early day it is thought. The President in anticipation of a rupture, will very soon ask for provisional me?ns to meet any emergency that may arise during a recess. When this "application is made, i will occasion much discussion, as it will be a question of more than ordinary importance. Such bellicose demonstrations as these may induce Spaiu to sell out, rather than to be come involved in an unprofitable war; and the business of the Commissioners will be to close the bargain: At all events, Cuba is ours and at no distant day, and since the slave ry question has been settled on the basis of the Constitution, she will come into the Un ion as the "bright particular star of the South.'' The Boston Courier says, on the re ception of the news of the passage of the Nebraska bill at Keene, N. H., the Democrats fired a salute, which the whigs answered by tolling the church bells. Every peal from the cannon was followed by a lugubrious chiiue from the three steeples. The Homestead Bill. The disposition of the public lands by Con- gross has ever been a fruitful source of con troversy. An equal distribution of this im mense property of the Union, so as no cause of complaint among its recipients may occur, is a duty which never can be discharged by the government without occasioning dissatis faction among somo classes of the people. I though the lato bill which passed both Houses of Congress making a grant of land to the several States for the benefit of the in- ligent insane, contained humane, lenevolent aud christian features, and sought only to ben efit that class of individuals who of all others most excite the pity and protestion of man kind, yet President Pierce in his unswerving devotion aad fidelity to the constitution and in resistence to the deep sympathies of his own heart in favor of all human purposes, was forced to fix his veto upon it, and he did well. This act of the President is considered by some whose opinions are entitled to the high est respect, as a certain indication of the courso he will pursue when the Homestead bill, now before Congress, shall be submitted to him for consideration. The object of this bill is to offer so much of certain p&rtions tf the public domain as will constitute a com fortable homestead to the enterprising emi grant, and that too in such a favorable man ner as may tend to encourage emmigration. The vast expanse of unoccupied territory would thus be settled, and the Government lands increased in value and brought into de mand. Such a provision as this would seem to contain a prudent principle of domestic poMcy. Whether Congress can give ateay the pub lic lands, says the Baltimore Sun, is an in quiry that is frequently made. This is a very inexplicit form of tho question, however, be cause Congress only represents tho eople to tthom they belong, and amongst whom they are to be distributed. Tho question is, can the people distribute the public lands amongst themselves, instead of selling them! Beyond doubt it is in their power to do so, subject to such restraint as pending obliga tions may impose ; such instance, as that in cluded in the act of January, 1847, by which the public lands are pledged for the payment of a certain stock. The constitution says "Congress shall have power to dispose of and make all needful rules and regulations respecting the territory or other property belonging to the United States," te. The cession of Virginia lands stipulates, that the "shall be considered a common fund for the use and benefit of such of the United States as have become,or shall become members of the confederation,"' &c. This latter stipulation only implies the gener al1 principle which should govern Congress in the disposal of lands since acquired. This general principle should be observed. Under present "rules and regulations" the public lands are disposed of aX one dollar and a quarter per acre. That price may, by tke same authority, be reduced to a quarter of a dollar per acre. The object to be kept in view is, solely the use and benefit of all the United States, without "prejudice to any claim of .the United States, or of any partic ular State." It is only for the people, there fore, to elect a Congress, with instructions to distribute the public lands under "needful rules regulations," and the thing could be constitutionally effected. If the prescut Con gress choose to enact a homestead bill, it is, of course, precisely the same thing. It would be a manifest absurdity for Con gress to pass a law distributing the public lands at once, and arbitrarily requiring every citizen to take his acre and hoe it. But, for " the general use and benefit of the States," it is proposed that every man shall receive a certain portion of the public lands, who xvill cultivate and occupy it. Those who are otherwise engaged, by such an act surrender, for the time being, their claim to the portion which they may at their own convenience secure. And should they never be disposed' to take a portion of the public lands in this war, they will at least share the use and benefit thereof in the general welfare, as it is promoted by the cultivation of territory, the increase of the wealth of the country, and the augmented revenues to be derived there from. Gr The result of the municipal election held in Philadelphia on the 6th inst., shows a com plete triumph of the coalition ticket. A combi nation of Whigs, Know Nothings, Temperance men and abolitionists achieved this victory. It cannot, therefore, be claimed legitimately by the Whig party. The Pennsylvanian thinks that this incongru ous mass cannot hive together very long. A general bursting up may be naturally expected; and then a reaction of public feelings operating fauorably upon the democratic organization will follow, promoting its ascendency, and insuring its success in the approaching State election. The M. E. Conference, South previ ous to its adjournment, elected Dr. L. M. Lee editor of the Richmond Christian Advo cate; E. H. Myers, editor of the Southern Christian Advocate; J. E. Cobb, editor of the Memphis Christian Advocate; Dr. J. B. McFerrin, editor of the Nashville Christian Advocate; L. D. Huston, editor of the Lady's Companion ; Dr. D. S. Doggett, editor of the Quarterly Review; and Dr. T. O. Summers, editor of the Sunday School Books and Tracts. The President's Proclamations The proclamation of President Pierce, pub lished in our last number, relative to the arm ed oxpiditions which are said to be fitting out for the purpose of invading Cuba, has been read with pleasure and satisfaction by all who feel an honest solicitude for t he -success of the present administration. In reference to this document the Union newspaper goes on to say thnt the government of the United States is founded uon strict obedience to law, faith ful observance of the constitutional guaran tees of our citizens, strict adherence to treaty obligations, and a patriotic public opinion. The present Executive, realizing Ins duties in the premises, and resolute alike against tho forekm and the domestic foe, has already proved to the world liis earnest desire to main tain a good understanding with other nations so long as that disposition can be honorably manifested. On a recent occasion, when the territory of our sister republic, Mexico, was invaded by an irresponsible combination of men, starting from our possessions on the Pa cific borders, President Pierce issuid his pro clamation, interposed the authority placed in his hnndarby the people, and, for the first lime in our modern history, succeeded in having arrested, and in bringing to trial, and to con viction, sentence and punishment, according to the severest penalties of the statute, the leaden of an expedition who had flattered themselves that they could use the name and the flag of the country to inflict injury upon our common neighbor and friend. And it is remarkable that while, at one ex treme of the Uuion an open orfroization is now set on foot against laws growing out of the constitution, aud intended fefr the protec tion of the rights of a large portion of our own citizens, the same strong and patriotic will that declares to Boston fanaticism, in the name of the republic, "thus fcir shalt thou go, and no farther,"is now lifted in solemn ad monition against an illegal combination in another extreme, founded upon entirely differ ent principles, and looking to entirely differ cut results. In the one case President Pierce exercises his high functions to preserve the rights of his fellow-countrymen; in the other he exercises the same high functions to fore warn his fellow-countrymen against infringing upon the rights of those to whom we arc bound by existing treaty obligations. To fail in either event to temporize with an organization, lawless, and yet stimulated by the belief that it will be justified by the world in setting Cuba free; and, on the other hand, to fear to grapple with the traitorous designs of north ern fanaticism would be to show that our laws were left, "like antique swords to rust iu their scabbards," or t'lat our Executive lack ed the will and the mettle to face a great pub lic crisis. Our present relations with Spain, growing out of existing and long-continued troubles between her authorities in Cuba, our consular representatives there, and our citizens, are not of a character to render volunteer and irre sponsible interference either reasonable or necessary-. That is a subject eminently belong ing to the people, through their representa tives and the Executive. Fully apprized of the w hole merits of the case, and no less sen sitive to the honor of the country than to the observance of public faith, as well in regard to cur own citizens, the question at issue be tween Spain and the United States may be safely intrusted to the "constituted authori ties." The President has given, and is giving, the closest and most earnest attention to that subject. lie will pursue no uncertain or changing course in reference to it. The long list of vexatious disturbances which have been endured by the people of the United States at the hands of Cuban authorities will, it is hoped, be speedily and amicably conceded. The termination of such a state of thi1rs is demanded alike by the best interests of Spain and the United States; and" whate. or steps the present administration may take to lutstgtt, by a firm, just, and decisive action, a consumma tion so devoutly to be desired, they will be sustained by the patriotic and intelligent judg ment of our own people, and by the approval of the civilized world. fc3FThe Senate has adopted a resolution of inquiry, proposed by Hon. Stephen Adams of this state in regard to a pension for the widow and children of James Batch, elder, killed at Boston by the mob last week while in tho discharge of his duty in the service of the United States marshal, in connection with the Rurns fugitive slave case. A simi lar resolution by Mr. Faulkner, of Ya. instruct ing the committee on the judiciary to inquire into the facts connected with Batehelder s flrnth with a view rt m.iL-incr h ipr.nl nrnvi- sions for his widow and children, was not effectual. It is said the Senate's Pension Committee hare agreed to report a bill gran ting $3,000 to the widow. Destructive Inventions. The war be tween tho powers of Europe will be of the most destructive character. Invention has been busy during the long peace Europe has enjoyed, in devising means for bringing hos tilities to a rapid termination, by making the catastrophe terrible and complete in the be- ginning. &team win oe introduced tor tne Mil , 1 - first time as an element of warfare, and its . . . mi rr a ! gigantic energies will effect as great a revolu iton in the science of war, as gunpowder pro duced on its first introduction into the battle field. The arsenals of England, it is said, have been closed for a long time, even to members of Parliament, while experiments have been making in new and terrible machines, which: are now to be brought into use. One of these is ( ailed the "Wagner Floating Gun," which glides along the water in a straight line till it strikes the vessel at which it is directed, when it thrusts into its sides its iron head, containing two pounds of fulminating powd er of mercury, w hich, by exploding, blows a hole in the vessel ten or twelve feet in diam eter, which it is impossible to close as tin round holes made by cannon balls. Subma rine boats are so perfected that they can reach aud attain a burner to an enemy's ship with out running the least danger. Experiments are also made with an asphyxiating ball, to paralyse crews, and in explosive balls, to set fire to ships as soon as they strike, with other engines of destruction equally as terrible and annihilating. 0 Discovery of a Diamond. A verv valu able diamond, weighing nineteen carets, the largest ever discovered in North America, and" which was found to be a gem of the pur est water, was dug up among a quantity of earth by a laborer in the employ of Mr. Jas Fisher, jr., at Manchester, near Richmond, Va. Senator DoiisJals. This distinguished statesman visited Ne v York city recently, aud whilst there vvaocompli meuted with a serenade. His speech in acknowl edgment of this mark of esteem, contained a clear and conclusive exposition of the principles contained in the Nebraska bill. Senator Doug lass said, "As much as the Nsbraska bill hus been assail ed and misrepresented, and as little as it was correctly understood in the outset, I have never for a moment doubted that it would receive the approval of the American pe ple, when its prin ciples were thoroughly known and appreciated. So long as we may exist under a popular gov ernment, so long as we shall recognize the prin ciple that the people are capable of self-government, so long is it right to carry that principle into effect throughout the length end breadth of the Union (Applause.) I need not remind you that the great feature of the Nehraska bill is sim ple the admission of the right of itr? people of a territory to decide for themselves what kind of laws and institutions they will live umler. If that principle is wise in New York, is it not wise and just in Nebraska? If it be right and proper in Illinois, w hy should it not beextendeJ to Kansas'? Tne right of the people to govern themselves, and to determine the character of their local institu tions according to their own judgment, and the dictates of their own consciences, is the great principle for which our fathers fought. Thi is sue then was whether a British Parliament should be allowed to regulate and interfere with our local affairs in die colonies; and because that principle was violate l eas revolulirmary fathers separated fnm tyranny that threatened to oppress t'lem. Shall we now ermit that principle, to the successful vindication of which we owe our liberties the principle that stands at the foundation of the Nebnska bill, against which all this excitement has been raised, and in support of which I put forth all my energy sftall we permit ibis principle to be violated? This is tjie issue upon which I -intend tostand before the American people, and to meet either approvol or disapproval. When this principle shall be carried into effect you will hear of no further excitement upon the qu estion ol slavery. Once in New York you had slavery, it is true, but you abolished it yourselves; you didn't ask an act of Congress, neither did you look for a3 sistan :e from others, but you acted independent of all outside influence. Now, if New York had a right to do that for herself, why should not Nebraska, California, New Mexico. Utah, and all the territories and states, be allowed the exer cise of the same right. During the delivery of these remarks Mr. D. received enthusiastic cheers. The Boston Mob k the Nehraska Bill. 0 We perceive that certain journals that professedly contend for the supremacy of the law are making an effort to connect the late abolition outrage at Boston with the recent passage of the Nebraska bill, and are disposed to palliate Its occurrence on the ground of the alleged injustice done by the passage of that measure to the non-slaveholding States In taking this false position, the enemies of the Nebraska measure seem determined to keep out of sight the well-known fact that the passage of the compromise acts of 1850 was followed by similar occurrences in Bos ton. The fugitive slave "Shadrach," from Norfolk, was arrested in Boston, and taken beforo Commissioner Curtis, and after the commissioner had adjourned the hearing to a subsequent day, a mob of armed negroes and wdiites, between the hours of one and two o'clock, in open day, violently burst through the doors of the United States court-room, where the fugitive was confined, under guard of the United States marshal and about a dozen aids, and bore him away in triumph, in spite of any resistance made by the mar shal and his deputies. But a few months afterwards, Sims anoth- I it: t A n i ( I l-n irf"Tl S Ul'ntllinti AMM rx MMM rtl I o s rested in Boston and taken before the com missioner, on which occasion the United States marshal resorted to extraordinary measures to paevent another outrage upon the laws; but such was the effect of the in flamatory appeals of Phillips, Parker, and other abolitionists, and the articles of the "Boston Commonwealth," and the circula tion of handbills in every part of the city up on the bad passions of the negro population and other enemies of the fugitive-slave law, that matters m JJoston assumed an aspect threatening great destruction to life and prop- erty. It was then, as now, boldly asserted . . that the fugitive should not be taken away The United States commissioner and other officers of the law, and all good citizens who declared for the supremacy of law and order, were subjected to violent and bitter invective and abuse. The mob gathered in such crowds, and approached the court-house in so threatening a manner, and assumed such arrogance and insolence towards the officers personally, that it was deemed necessary to barricade the hall of the court-house, and to encircle it with a chain fence. The mayor of the city ordered the military under arms, and pui the watch and police force under military discipline for extra duty. For sev eral days and nights these circumstances re quired that this unusual protective force should be in constant requisition; and by these means only a large ond rlototialv-dis-posed crowd, armed with pistols, km vet, t lung-shots, and other deadly weapons, was restrained from deeds which must have ended in bloodshed. Many negroes were arrested in the vicinity of the court-house, and pun ished in the municipal courts, for carrying pistols, dirk-knives, and other weapons. the law ot the United States had its course. Sims was, by ordar of the commis sioner, remanded back to his owner, and at four o'clock on the following morniug was placed in a hollow square formed by a suffi cient body of men, find marched on bjard the brig "Acorn," which took him to Savan nab. An immense throng of abolitionists followed the- gaurd duwu the streets, sneering at the officials, but attempting no overt act at violence. Several military companies at the time were at their respective armories, prepared for action at a minute's notice. It was then, while Sims w?.s being borne over waters of Boston bay, that these abolitionists reiterated their detestation of the law and of its executive officers, and emphatically de clared that never again, while they had life and strength, should a fugitive slave be de livered up to his master in Boston. Their vigilance committees thenceforth kept up a lively organization, aud day and night were the movements of the United States marshal, his deputies, and all suspected of hating the least official relations with them, so closely watched, that the abolitionists boasted of having made their permanent plans so perfect and complete that it was imjKssible for the marshal to cause even the arrest of another fugitive. From that day to the present this purpose of the abolitionists has been persisted in; and whether the Nebraska bill had passed or not . . i the excitement in Boston, growing out of the case now before the commissioner, would have taken place. It is reasonable enough, how ever, that the abuse and falsehood of the al- alitionists in Congress, which have distininiish ed their speeches against the Nebraska I ill is well enough that it is so. The country can now see exactly how far the abolitionists would go had they power to execute what they threaten. The Uniondoving citizens of the North, who have heard the blasphemies and denunciations of these wicked men, and have regarded them as the ravines of insani ty, will perceive the reckless extremes to which these men would go if opportunity were offered to them. In this respect the violence of tho Boston negroes, and their white associates, teaches the country a useful lesson. Union. Facts in IIcman Life. The number of languages spoken in the world amounts to 8074; 587 in Europe, 896 in Asia, 276 in Africa, and 1274 in America. The inhabi tants of the globe profess more than 1000 different religions. The number of men is about equal to the number of women. The average of human life is about 28 years One quarter die previous to the age of 7 years; one half before reaching 17; and those who pass this age enjoy a facility refused to one half the human species. To every 1000 persons, only one reaches 100 years of life; to every one hundred, only six reach the age of 65 ; and not more than one in five hun dred lives to see 80 years of age. There are on earth 1,000,000,000 inhabitants; and of these 33,333,333 die every year, 91,334 eve ry day, 3780 every hour, and 60 every min ute, or one every second. These losses are about balanced by an equal number of births The married are longer lived than the single, and, above all, those who observe a sober and industrious conduct. Tall men live longer than short ones. "Women liave more chan ces of life in their favor previous to being 50 years of age than men have, but fewer after wards. The number of marriages is in pro portion of 75 to every 1000 individuals. Mariiages are more frequent after the equi noxes; thj is, during the months of June and December. Those born in the spring are generally more robust than others. Births and deaths are more frequent by night than by day.
