Millard Fillmore.
[LTIt will be seen by reference to a notice in
another column, that a call is made npon the Tay
lor men, to meet on the loth inst. at Mr. Herbert s
ball room on the Island. Col. R. S. Stewart, R.
I,. Watson, Duncan Kenner and R. Upton, will
address the meeting.
The Weather .—The rains in this section of
Louisiana, appear to increase rather than diminish
in their violence. On last Friday and Tuesday
evenings it rained excessively, accompanied with
much wind wid severe thunder and lightning. We
do not recollect evei to have seen such frequent and
heavy showers, in so short a space of time, as we
have witnessed here within the last month, and, al
though we have heard no complaints, damage cer
tainly must have accrued to the planters.
OTT' Gen. Lane has announced thathe will accept
the Governorship of Oregon, and that he will pro
ceed, in a short time, with his fomily, to that coun
try. So says the St. Louis Republican.
Louisville .—According to the most recent esti
mates, the population of Louisville, Ky., is now
36,500; the number of buildings, 7900; and the va
lue of property, real and personal, $13,047,514.
ß* Charles A. Meigs, hiiherto a respectable
merchant of Edgefield Court House, S. C., has
been detected in robbing the post-office of that place
of $14. He confesses other depredations.
The Excitement at Cincinnati.—A telegraph
ic despatch dated Pittsburg, Aug. 25 m . says:
"The excitement at Cincinnati, growing out of the
outrage perpetrated upon ayouQg girl there, is still
great. The jail is under military guard. Three
of the rioters have been killed, and seveu others are
badly woîinded. The Sheriff has a large military
force under his command."
An Example .—Summary justice, in lhe shape
of tar and feathers, (says the Columbia, S. C.,
Telegraph,) was inflicted last week by the citizens
ofOrangebnrg District, on an interesting stranger,
caught tampering with slaves i n t|iat neighborhood.
O* Several years ago, Mr. Eilet, the successful
engineer of the Niagara Suspension Bridge, pro
posed to the citizens of Si. Louis to construct a
similar bridge across the Mississippi river at that
place. The possibility of achieving such an un
dertaking lyas then doubted, and the mattet was
dropped; but now that the Niagara Bridge has
been completed, attention is seriously directed to
Mr. diet's proposition by the people of St. Louis.
Origin or the Albany Fire .—This fire (says
the Albany Knickerbocker) originated in a very
singular vanner. It appears that while a woman
was washing, a spark set fire to her snnbonnet ;
without a moment's thought, she jerked it from her
head and threw it she knew not wheie ; unfortu
nately it lighted in the stable of William Johnson,
which in & moment almost was enveloped in
New Mexic ».—The Santa Fé Republican of
the 16th July, having received the message of Gov.
Wood, of Texas, in which he sets up a paper claim
to the best portion of New Mexico, ridicules the
pretension with great severity. It says that Texas
might as well have legislated a claim to Louisiana
as to any portion of New Mexico ; that if Texan au
thorities attempt to govern that country, they will
find themselves awfully taken in ; and that Mexico
has a population competent to elect their own offi
cers, and make their own laws, and never will con
senttothis unexpected and unjust claim.
Pkihuïlvahw .— The Whigs hare nominated as
tioveraor Wm. F. Johnson, and the Democrats
Morris Longstreth—so says a despatch to the Bnlle
Pear of Public Opinion.
We are as well convinced of the truth, aj il we
had the divine power of reading the thoughts of
individuals, that in this parish as elsewheie, there
are a number of persons and voters, who are posi
tive of the fact that outrageous falsehoods are pro
pagated by the opponents of Taylor and Fillmore
and equally convinced in iheir minds that lhe oppo
silo tickct is dangerous, lliat it is impure, that (here
is too much shuffling and trickery evident in the
character of him who stands at the head of that
ticket, and that it does not adcord with their honest
and patriotic views ; but, because they have hither
to been considered as Democrats, they have not the
independence or courage to expie^s their convic
tions openly and aboveboard, and therefore the mo
ral influence of such an act upon less enlightened
minds, is lost to the country and to the age.
Why is this? It is because men are afraid of the
taunts and jibes of those, less honest, less patriotic,
and with less brains, who belong to the same party.
If there is'a curse inflicted by the Almighty upon
lhe nature of an individual, it is a disposition to act
contrary to a just conception of what is right
through tho fear of public opinion, and this is ]*ir- j
ticularlv applicable in reference to public altairs,
where the welfare of a nation is dependent upon
the correct judgment and unbiassed actions of its
A man, whose whole career upon political sub
jects, shows llul he is governed by the wand of par
ty and of power, prostituting his reason, his scif
respecl and his liberties, will often be found to be
the most unrelenting stickler for correct principles,
for truth and honor, in his own personal affairs, or
among his own family. The idolized daughter, be
coming enoingled in the wily and insiduous snare
of lhe gay and artful seducer, is blasted and withers
in her beauty and iter youth- she is spurned by lhe
father who had so often embraced ner with affection
and admiration, and wanders forth, a lost but
penitent one, to die in misery and in want; the
wife is false to the bosom of her husband, and obey
ing the natural impulse of insulted honor, he thrusts
her fiom him with scorn and indignation; a son
or brother strays from the path of virtue, in
temperance has prostrated his energies and hischa
acter, and he is shunned and discarded ; all these
associations of home and warm affections of the
heart are prostrated at the shrine of right, justice
and honor, in defiance of feeling and regardless of
the world. But let the principles of a party or its
leaders degenerate—(selfishness and not the wel
fare of the nation lhe governing principle)—and
if the mind is fully convinced that it is acting im
properly iti longer upholding such a party and such
principles, fear restrains the tongue from assert
ing these convictions—feai that weakness may be
impute i or selfishness attributed. And thus men
will act, who in their private affairs seem lo be the
quintcscenco of honor itself.
It is an exalted virtue to leave a party when we
consider that its spirit and its actions have become
impure, or when an acknowledged leader is pre
sented whose character is undoubtedly that of a
selfish and ambitious trickster. The loftiest princi
ple which a father can infuse in the breast of his
son is a determination to be governed through life
by the precepts which education inculcates, and the
inflexibility of a sound and unwavering judgment.
Democsats, very many of you have determined to
vote for Taylor and Fillmore; and many of you,
like that staunch and illustrious Democrat who fell
at the seige of the Alamo, the immortal Crockett,
are conscious that your party has changed, and you
will not support it, but yet, unlike the first noble
spirits, you have hithertc tefrained from proclaim
ing the change of your sentiments. Come out
boldly, and transmit lo posterity the honor of hav
ing assisted to place Old Zach in the Presidential
chair; and remember that the noblest of sentiments,
though uncouth and rough-hewn like its great au
thor, and whether in reference to ethics or politics,
is to "be sure you're right, then go ahead !"
Gen. Wm. O. Butler and the Creoles of
"But there was still a third class, who neither
owed nor professed any allegiance to this nation.—
The city and country were filled with foreigners
and strangers from every clime and zone, of every
tribe and tongue, whose sole business was to better
their condition—having more or less interest staked
on the result of the coming contest. Who would
pretend to vouch that these "lookers on in Vienna"
„were all good men and true, and ready to "do or
die" in a cause not their own? Or who would even
vouch that they would not join the enemy, who
seemed to Jiave victory already written on his ban
ner? Sir, had one-half of the population of this
country [Louisiana] pledged themselves for the pa
triotism of the othfr, it could not have been expected
that a man as deeply read in that intricaie volume
the human heart—and as well acquainted with all its
springs of action, as General Javkson is hnown to
be, would have given it a moment's credence. But
General Jackson was not left to speculate upon
this general knowledge of men and things. He was
warned and forewarned previous lo reaching Lou
isiana—and that, too, from the very highest author
ity m (he land—that it was filled with spies and
» * * » * * *
"The city troops, who should have been the last,
were the first to manifest a spirit of insubordination.
Many claimed leave to return to the city; and it is
contended that they were entitled to this indul
gence, as their families or friends resided there.
The gay carnival season, tao, was drawing to a close;
and titeir national love of pleasure (for they were
mostly of French origin) was too strong for their
patriotism . Not having succeeded in their appli
cation to Gen. Jackson, many, who weie known to
be American citizens, applied to and received pro
tection of, the French consul, who invariably certi
fied them to be citizens of France. Armed with
these certificates, they demanded their discharge,
leaving their brother soldiers from distant States to
defend the very firesides which they were so eager
to enjoy.''— Extracts of a speech delivered by Gen.
IPm. O. Butler in the House of Representatives, Jan
wiry, 1843.
We have every respect for the high character of
Gen. Wm. O. Butler. His name is associatedwith
some of the brightest events of our history. But,
i however much lie may be esteemed in Louisiana |
j f ur |,j 9 talents and his services, he cannot expect to
I be supported by the free and patriotic citizens of
litis State after such general and sweeping denuncia
tion. According to (Jen. Butler's statement—made,
too, before the assembled representatives of the peo
ple, where disgrace would fall heaviest—the name
j ofcreole during the last war with Great Bntain, was
; synonymous with that of traitor, and therefore, ac
cording lo Iiis testimony, the present citizens of
Louisiana are the sons of traitors ! Why was lie
thus incensed against the whole .population? Be»
cause, forsooth, a few dastardly spirits, tobe found
in every army upon the eve of battle—men whose
habits of vice had lost them to every sense of honor
—proved recreant in the hour of danger. And be
cause they were of 'French origin,' an antipathy
against all, without discrimination, takes possession
of Gen. Butler's breast; but not satisfied with its
.lankling there, he must stamp the stigma lipon lhe
page of history, by proclaiming his belief upon the
lloor of Congress,
Had one half of you, ot your fathers, asserts
(ïen. Butler, pledged yourselves for the patriotism
of the other half, it would not have been given a
moment's credence." Thus, after denouncing all |
the Creoles as renegades, lie endeavors to mitigate I
the severity of his language a little, by saying in
unvarnished terms, that although one hall of the
State in 1814 would have sworn that the other half j
would light when called on, they were such liars
they could not he believed. This is his meaning,
rendered into a plain style; and a precious popula*
tion you are, hv his account. But further, he says
the Creoles of Louisiana are so fond of p!easuie,so
regardless of the endearments of their firesides, that,
like Nero, who fiddled while Rome was burning,
you could laugh and be merry white the enemy was
upon the point of desecrating your altars, laying
waste your homesteads, and shouting their watch
word of "booty and beauty." So, after asserting
that you were not patriotic etiough to defend your
firesides, and that your pledges were valueless, he
goes farther, and intimates that yon are worse than
savages, for they have the common feelings of hu
And these are the people, traduced by General
Butler—the Creoles of Louisiana! a name synon
ymous with honor and valor—who first rushed to
the aid of the gallant Taylor upon the sered plains
of Mexico, leaving behind them all that was dear
and sacred, and whose sterling worth and intrepid
ity in the hour of conflict, the old Chief has testified
with so much pride on various occasions where he
has spoken of the Creoles of Louisiana.
No, Gen. Butler, however much the Creoles of
Louisiana may have been disposed lo favor your high
pretensions, they would consider themselves base
indeed, now that your sentiments towards them are
known, lo "lick the hand that has branded them
vvidi infamy." They will tell you on the 7th of
next November, that those of the "French origin"
know well how lo reward their traducers.
Mr. Webster against Free Soil and is fa
vor of Tatlor .—We received last evening, says!
the Picayune of yesterday, a telegraphic despatch !
dated Charleston, Monday the 4th inst. It informs I
us that Mr. Webster had made his expected speech 1
in favor of Gen. Taylor for the Presidency, and j
against lhe Free Soil movement.
There was no change in lhe New York cotton
market. Flour has advanced eighteen cents, corn
six cents, and wheat five cents.
Tampico .— By a letter from a creditable source,
dated 2d inst., says the Crescent of the 14th, we
learn that ihn fatal ideas of annexation are develop
ing themselves in that unfortunate section of Mexi.
co,and thesadestpartofthe business is, that some
evil disposed Mexicans have taken part in it. We
are assured that there have returned to Tampico
many officers, non-commissioned officers and sol
diers of the American army. The plan of the con
spirators is yet in embryo, and it ij uccessary that
the Government should lake whatever measures
the exigencies of the case may demand, in order to
discover the authors of this treason, and punish
them with a strong hand, and in such manner as
may be a warning and example. Again : A person
just arrived from Tampico informss us of the ad
vanced state of the projects of annexation and as
sures us that if a respectable force is not imme
diately sent the result will be disastrous.
The Louisiana volunteers are already returning
in accordance with a contract with an officer and
other persons of the country, who are bound to fur
nish assistance.
El Monitor, of a later date, says that the Govern,
ment has ordered a large force to Tampico, and
predicts the speedy disappearance of all disaffection
ICT A Washington correspondent of the Balti
more Sun writes : " Gen Lane—I have the liberty
to state authentically—has accepted the appoint
ment of Governor of Oregon, and will take his de
parture for that distant Territory of the United
Slates within the next two weeks. Mr. Prichett,
the newly appointed Secretary of the Territory, I
saw here last evening, and he also will leave im
mediately. California, however, I repeat, is to be
jhe next theatre of action and stirring events."
Military Land Warrants.—The Washington
News of the 26th ult. has the following : '
We quoted land warrants last week at $106, and
spoke of their tendency to rise. They are now sel
ling at $108 with few in the market. A decided
preference is given to those warrants which art as
signed by persons acting under powers of attorney
attached. War bounty scrip brings $95 to $96.
Ice .—We are beginning to suffer for want of
ice, says the Pic. The supply has become so short
that the principal dealers decline selling, having
quite'as much as they can do to supply standing
contracts. Exception is made in favor of the sick.
As Incident .—The following comes to us from
a highly respectable source, and we lay it before our
At Pascagotila, a distinguished Democrat was
present while a crowd of persons were paying their
respects to Gen. Taylor, and receiving from him
that cordial reception which is characteristic of the
old man. Hoping lo make a little capital, doubt
less, but certainly displaying a great want of sense,
the friend of General Cass remarked lo the wife
of lhe General, if it was not very repulsive to her
feelings, and her ideas of propriety, to see her hus
band mingling so unceremoniously with the rabble
of the country. She turned towards him, saysotir
correspondent, and gave him the most withering
look that ever the mild eye of woman sen! forth.
"Oh. sir, said she "we differ as lo j cha is the 4 rab- j
ble of the country.' If you mean lhe honest ine. \
chanics and laboring gentlemen of the land, I am i
proud to say that I look upon these as the bulwark i
of the Republic— ils pride and-wealth—and the
best guarantee of the perpetuity of our indepen
dence; it is to these noble spirits that my husband
is indebted for what he is. May God multiply and
bless our country with many such citizens, although
they may be looked upon as 'the rabble' by some."
It is needless to add that the gentleman looked as
small as lhe Hero of Hull's surrender must have
looked, when he was delivering his sword and the
American flag with 300 picked men into the hands
of a British officer.
O' Gen. Wool had a very gratifying reception,
at Troy on his arrival there on tlie 19th ult At
dinner, on tbe way up, in reply to a complimentary
toast, Gen. Wool made some remarks, of which we
find in the N. Y, Evening Post the following nol
tice :
Some allusion having been made to Gen. Woo
as the hero ofBuèna Vista, he replied by disclaim
ing his right to lay claim to that honor. He remark
ed that (ren. Taylor was the commanding ofiicer
on that occasion: and as such he was entitled to the
credit of the victory; as, had the battle terminated
differently Gen. Taylor must have certainly borne
the responsibility of defeat. He was happy to say,
that upon that occasion, as upon all others, there had
been the most peifect understanding between him
selfand Gen. Taylor. They had acted in conceit,
and their opinions happily corresponded on all im
portant particulars.
