Sullivan, and wti one of the best paper in the State." Mr. Babtlett died last Thursday week, after a short illness, of bilious fever. Col. Crittenden, one of the unfortunate vic- timt shot at Havana, was a ton of the Hon. Henry Crittenden, late of Shelby county Ky., and a nephew of the Hon. John J. Crittenden, Attorney General of the United States. p.,. A tremendous Cuba meeting was held at Memphis, Tenn., on the night of the 81st ult. We have received an extra Daily Washington Globe, containing a list of all thi appropriations of money made during the last session of Con gress; also a'statement of the office created, and the salaries of each; and also, a statement of the offices the salaries of which have been increas ed, and the amount of such increase : published in pursuance of an act of Congress passed the 4th of July, 1836. Eoi!boboh Review. iThe July number of this Review is on our table. From a criticism on "Johnson's Notet on North America," it is evident that considerable solicitude is felt in England about the discussion in Canada, on the -subject of "annexation" to the United States. Those "loudest in its favor are the Roman Catholics and the old party of the Fam ily Compact." Navigating the Air. The 1'ans corres pondent of the Republican says Mr. Petin will soon prove to the world that the problem of nav igating the air has at last been resolved. Aoti.tk' JoiiMii. I Ins is the title ot a new monthly newspaper started at Cincinnati, of which we have just received the fourth num ber. It is distributed gratuitously to subscribers to the "Artists' Union," of Cincinnati; a dollar 'only is charged for subscriptions to the paper. it i a beautiful naner. and the varied interest B. ... . of its'contents, make it well yorth a dollar. The Bottom Falling out. or a Riveh The Mt. Pleasant, (Iowa) Observer learns that on Skunk river, near Mr. Jamesr Britton s rest ili-nne. about four miles from Mt. Pleasant, a Strength of Cuba. We clip the following from remarks by a cor respondent of the St. Louis Republican i Another fundamental lie, started and kept a float to deceive and mislead our youth, is the constant repetition of the weakness of Cuba. This every reader of history knows to be gross ly false, and its propagation is infamous, as it sends our young men there wholly unprepared to meet what these advisers know they have to encounter. They are thereby surprised and the more easily sacrificed. If they must be duped to go, for God's take tell them the truth at to what they have to meet. ' Instead of Cuba being weak, she is, perhaps, the strongest power on the globe of equal population. She has more ) defensible fortifications and military and naval resources than any nation of her size on the globe. Her wealth to her population is unpar alleled, except in the great commercial cities of the world. Her port duties are more than ten millions of dollars, and her other resources from taxes, tome fix or seven millions, and that in a population of a million and a half of people. Havana, her capital, was once taken by the Eng. lish, when Cuba wasjiot half what she is now in population or strength, and their preparation for the expedition may give tome clue to what British statesmen thought of her resources ninety years ago. The expedition was fitted out se cretly at Spithead, andisailed March 5th, 1762. When it was all collected at Cape St. Nicholas, in the island of St. Domingo, to make its secret descent on Havana, it consisted of two hundred vessels of all classes. Nineteen of them were ships of the line, a large number of frigates, and other vessels, including thirty four store ships." I he better to conceal their approach, which was wholly unknown at Havana, the whole fleet passed down the Bahama channel, and were un discovered until within a few leagues of the city. The troops, fourteen thousand, were Caitile or St Domingo. Tmm tin N.r Tors. Ermine Fort, (abolition). At toon at the war it diverted from itt origi nal object of throwing off the yoke of Sivam. and becomet a struggle to reduce the blacks to bondage, it will of course draw into the quarrel all the whites of the Island on one tide, and all the blacks on the other. . The moneUroi, who have no liking for the negroes, will range them selves on the tide of planters. The free color ed people, of whom there are more than a hun dred and fifty thousand on the island, tame of whom have all the intelligence of the whites, and who have their own wrongs to avenge, will nat urally become the leaders of emancipated slaves. Of the slaves many are natives of Africa, men of herculean proportion! and great strength. who remember the horrors of a passage across the ocean in slave ships, and are ready to take terrible vengeance on the white race, as toon as the opportunity is given them. The civil wars of the Spaniards are always accompanied by acts of barbarity, and with this infusion of the ferocity of the African savage, the strife in Cu ba will become frightfully bloody and cruel. The plantations will be ravaged, the earth will be no longer tilled, the country will become a waste, the commerce of the island will cease. Suppose, however, that Uris fearful struggle should be ended in a year or two by the subju gation of the blacks a fate which we think would be inevitable and by their return to ser vitude, wnat shall then be done wtih Cuba, which, after to terrible an experience of the calamities of Spanish rule, the whole' civilized world will agree ought never come under -the yoke of Spain ? An application, we suppose, would be made to annex the Island to the Uni ted States. This would revive in all its heat the agitation of the slavery question, and, beget a more violent strife than ever between the North and boulh.

One reason is, that at South Carolina is preparing to fight her way out of the Union, she will make no special cf- ;fnrt tn draw other States into it. The article of the Mercury concludes as follows. We do not, therefore, fear the annexation of Cuba, because of any fatal drain in our slave nnmilation. But because its Union with the United States even if it could be effected with out the process of war, and the imminent risk of an entire disorganization 01 us soci.11 aim m Himtrial svstem. would be incongruous and tin. natural because it is for the interest of the South, that there should be other slave xnnntries than our own. and because our has latterly afforded a most imprcs sive demonstration of the time-honored theory nf nhilosoDhers. that a wide extent of dominion i incomDatible with the preservation of repub lican institutions. We are already feeling that the laws and the constitution are not in the way of the central government. Give ug Cuba, used to the control of an army, and from its insular 'position requiring a strong force to protect it. and how long before our central government would become an uncontrollable despotism !

The Charleston .Mercury call the United States Troops garrisoning fne forts of tliat har bor 'the Army of Occupation," and strives in every way to excite odium against the officers and men, and to stir up bad blood between them and the citizens. We presume the United States have a right to occupy their own forts, and no harm done' either. Do the Disunionists intend to seize and occupy the points in question them selves ? If so, we rfCrtoit others will have a say in the matter. There are other States to be consulted besides South Carolina. If the South Carolina disunion aristocrats go on much longer there will be a deeper feeling excited against them in Virginia ana the South generally than in any other quarter of the Union. Alex.

In au article with this heading, the Charleston Mercury enu merates various circumstances (such as the landing, a few days ago, of the two companies of United States Soldiers at that post, and the refusal of the commandant of Fort Moultrie to allow the Charlestonians to celebrate the 27th of June, according to custom, within the limits of that post) which it considers as furnishing in disputable evidence thr.t preparations have been steadily and systematically miule lor some lime past to place the United Suites in military possa tion of South Carolina. The Mercury winds up by saying : "We have hero stated the train of events on which we founded the conclusion that Charles ton is surrounded by an extraordinary force for the purpose, if not of making war upon, at least of bullying the State, and preventing the exer cise of its sovereign rights.
