The New Secretary of the Interior.— The Alexandria (Va.) Gazette endorses the ap pointment of Mr. Stuart, of that State as Se cretary of the Interior, as a very judicious one, ■and adds: "He is an abte man, of business habits, capable, experienced and affable-" Mr. Stuart arrived in Washington on the evening of the 14th. It was expected that lie would enter on the duties of his office on Monday, the 16th. Minerals in Arkansas .—Large bodies of lands are being located in Independence county, Ark., supposed to contain extensive depots of lead ore. The discoveries of minerals already made are attracting the attention of capitalists; bcîth at home and abroad. Large lumps of ore have been picked up on the surface of the ground, and open pockets found in ravines atid the beds of small streams.

Some of them were captured and de livered to the owners. A Noele Sentiment .--Henry A. Wise, in his late address on the subject of education; says: "Tern h your children the elements of Christian philosophy, the Bible, lessonsof love and temperance, and knowledge, and virtue, and faith nnd hope, and charity, and you may turn them out into the world without a pang of ap prehension, without a doubt, or distrust, or fear; they will never hurt each other, and never in jure the State."

The Gazette recommends, (the United States government having failed to afford protection to the citizens of western Te.ïas.) that on ade quate force of rangers be raised and kept in active service wpon the fioui ier, until the In dians shall have been driven back or extermi nated. CT The Sonora Herald of the 10th August contains the following : Another Lump .—At Carson's new diggins a chunk of gold, almost wholly free "from quartz, has been taken out, weighing foriy pounds!.' This fact, says the Pacific News, we have from Col. D. J. Woodlief, Colleeior of the foreign taxes for Calaveras county.

On this principle it fol lows that virtue are vices in embryo. Later From California. ARRIVAL OF THE STEAMSHIP FALCON The steanfship Falcon, II. J. Ilartstene, U. S. N., commanding, arrived at her wharf, loot of St. Mary street, Lafayette, yesterday about 4P. M. 23d. She left Chagreson the 12th and Havana on the 20th inst. She started from Chagres with 390 passen gers: twenty-two of whom died of cholera— eighteen on the passage, and four during tiie stay at Havana. The cholera prevails to a considerable ex tent at Chagres and on the Isthmus, but princi pally among those coining from California, who imprudently expose themselves to the weather, and cat too much fruit. The different stopping places along the Pa cific coast are reported free of cholera. The news from California is important and interesting. On the 14th of August, the day before the sailing of the two hist steamers, a dreadful riot, attended with loss of life, took place at Sacra mento City, between the squatters and the citi zens, holders of property under the Sutler titles. The affair originated in an at'empt on the part of the squatters to release two .of their companions who were confined in a prison-ship for resisting a writ of reslitAtion. A body of squatters repaired to the brig where they were met by the sheriff and mayor of the city, and a posse of men, when a terrible fight took place, in which the mayor and five men were killed and several wounded. The city had been declared martial law and every citizen required to enroll his name. From six to nine hundred "squatters" had as sembled in one of the principal streets, deter mined lo fire upon any who approached them. Lieut. Gov. McDoiigall came down to Beneeia to order up all the Government troops and mu nitions of war, with the determination locate the enemy and bring them to a speedy hnd sum mary trial. A 1 non-combatants had been ordered by the Governor to keep clear of the streets, and a cannon supplied with twenty-four rounds, or dered to be placed at the foot of one of the principal streets. The keepers of gaming hou. ses and sporting men generally sided with the real estate owners and citizens proper. The following is a copy of the original des patch furnished by a gentleman connected with the Pacific News, who came in charge of the Government Mails, and may, therefore, be reli ed upon as correct : Thursday, Avgusl 4,r. m, Very Latest— Fearful Rumor. —Just as the Mail Agent was leaving for the steamer, a gentleman called at the Pacific News office (4 p.m .) and stated that he had received a letter from Sacramento, brought by express, sta ting that the city had been burned down the night previous by the Squatters, who had sent to the mines for aid among the miners. The gentleman was well known to the editor of the News, and it was too probably the case. The news from the gold mines continues fa vorable as ever—and even more so—if all ac count»told of new discoveries be true. The two propellers, Carolinaand Coiling us, arrived at Panama on the 4th, bringing one in'llion four hundred dollars worth of gold,and 275 passengers. The Columbus brought 200 passengers, and about one-ha'fthe gold dust. Tne Falcon brings.to New Oceans 160 pas sengers, 45 of whom are from New York, 8 from Havana, and the rest from Chagres, She brings no dust on freight for New Orleans— the whole amount brough om Chagres, 0200, 000, went to New York by the Ohio. Many passengers by the Ohio have large amounts of gold. The Ohio and Georgia had arrived at Ha vana and sailed, when the Falcon left, the for mer for New York, and the latter for Chagres. The steamer Rafael Rivas was running on the Chagres river. She bad gone up as high as Palanquilla. The Falcon at Havana transferred to the Ohio two hundred and seventy passengers. On the morning of the 18th several cases of cholera occurred on the Ohio. The cholera on the Fal con was confined to the steerage passengers ; not one of the officers of the crew having been affected with it. Several male passengers, for New Orleans, protested against coming on the Falcon, on account of her alledged condition. They took passage in the brig Adams Gray. The ladies all came on board without hesita tion. Nota case of cholera has occurred on the Falcon since the nhrlit of the 18th. Jenny Lino's Generosity .—The munificence of Jenny Lind, in bestowing ten thousand dol lars on the public charities of New-York, is a proof of her truly generous and noble charac ter, so different from that of public singers generally. We think we are safe in assert iug that this sum exceeds, in amount, all that has ever been given by all the artists who hav£ preceded her to our shores. Others have expended vast sums on venal editor, on their own pleasures, on pomp, and luxury, and dis play; but to Jenny Lind belongs the merit of giving to Ihc support of the poor, to the widow and the orphan. Nor has this donation been merely to purchase popularity. The frequency of similar gifts abroad, where popularity is not to be bought in this way, is a proof that this act was not one dictated by selfish interest, but was the spontaneous burst of a grateful heart. Indeed it is the character of Jenny Lind as a woman, more than her vocal powers, which endears her to all who know her. She evi dently regards herself as bound to employ her voice for the benefit of the suffering, as well as" for her own pecuniary advancement; and as Heaven has endowed her with unusual gifts, 6he shows her gratitude to Heaven by the mu nificence of her charities. Would that there were more like her.— Philadelphia Bulletin. T he D uty ofthe S out «.—The Richmond Republican, in an article based on an idea that the slavery question will be settled for the pres ent, but that it can remain so only a few years, "owing to the hold which abolition opinions have upon the Northern people,says that in view of the facts the duly of the South "is to seize these few years of respite, and employ ev ery moment of them in building up southern commerce, southern railroads, southern colle ges and Bchools, southern industry in every de partment of human enterprise. This should be considered a duty second only in importance to the most sacred duties of religion. We should like to see home associations formed witntnese objects, and the whole force of south ern sentiment concentrated, organized and brought to bear in a solid column in their be half." We agree entirely in this opinion, and shall rejoice to see it adopted with energy and effi ciency. Nor have we any doubt the dcvelope liient of the immense natnral resources of the South, and especially the establishment of a good system of popular education, will prove more a bond to unite the whole country than a préparai : on for it« divisor • -N. Y. Tribune. What Next ! If the following, which we take from the Charleston Mercury, of the 21st ult., is not the true, unadulterated, and real American protec tive system, then we are no judges. It is a most sensibly expressed article and contains, in a nut shell, the whole doctrine in faver of home in dustry. We shall soon expect to see South Carolina throw up her hat, and shout for a ta riff of protection. "Encourage y tut own Mechanics.— Do not send abroad for help if you have work to do, when it can be done in your own neighborhood —perhaps at your next door. Encourage your own honest, industrious, faithful mechanics. They need all the work they can get. By such a course, you keep money at home, assist the worthy, and have just as good work performed. It is the only way to make a town prosperous —to support your schdols and churches.— Where there is a disposition to send a hundred miles for articles that, to say the least, could be manufactured as well at your own door, there wiM always belittle or no business done in the place—the churches will be thinly attended, and all kinds of labor extremely dull.- Wher ever mechanics arc the best employed, prosper ity is seen—the social virtues predominate, travelling mountebanks and pedlars retire in disgust, and a kindly, brotherly feeling is expe rienced, which is the source of unspeakable happiness. "Whatever you have to be done, look around and see if your neighbors cannot do it. If you have a house to build or a siioe to tap, a har ness to be made or a pump to be bored, a pack of cards to be printed or a well to be dug, just look amongyour neighbors, before you under take to send abroad ; and if you have none around you capable of the task, it will be time enough to look elsewhere. It is a wrong idea, to suppose nothing is serviceable that is made at home. We know of many Instances where men have refused to purchase work made by their neighbors, and sent to a distant city for the articles they needed, and paid a third more for them, when behold ! they had been manu factured and sent away to sell bv the very neighbors of whom they refused to purchase. "Let it be the motto of all—I will encourage my own neighbors. In turn you will be en couraged also. A mutual feeling of goodwill and kindness wll spring up in your midst, and prosperity will be observable in every street and in every dwelling." as a (4 ting the fa ac us, 8 ; ^ Letter from Washington. [Spociul Correspondent of the Picayune.] Washington, September 17,1850. We had quite an exhibition of egotism in the Senate yesterday. Mr. Benton took occa sion on the final passage of the bill abolishing ilave trade in the District of Columbia, to the - - , remark that the whole slavery question might have been disposed of four months ago but for the unreasonable construction of the Omnibus a that he, (Thomas Hart Benton,) had fbrseen the difficulties which were to surrender an om nibus, and that if others had seen as clearly as he saw, we should not have encountered half the difficulties in settling the question. No man but Mr. Benton could make such a speech— there is not anther person in Congress that cou : d muster sufficient brass for it. Mr. Clay rose, and in his usual dignified manner, rebuked the grent humbugger by stating he rejoiced at the passage of the bill, and eared very little whether they passed singly or in omnibus fash ion, so the country enjo yed the benefits of the settlement. He tj^Éto credit to iiituseli mort than any other Set^ror for having contributed his share towards the adjustment Mr. Foote made a few very pertinent and happy remarks, which cauaed quite a storm of applause in 'the galleries, and discomfitted Benton. Mr. Foote said that the omnibus rallied public sentiment all over the country, so that when it was defea ted the voice of the people from every part of the Union demanded fresh action in the premi ses and overruled the individual objections of Senators and members. This is undoubtedly true. The probability is, that if seperate bills had first been introduced, they would have been defeated, and an omnibus would have been con structed to convey them in a body to their res pective places of destination. The Omnibus being tried first, reversed the issue, and brought in the seperate bill-. No bill introduced at the commencement of the session could have been got through. It was the effect of the loss o| the bill, on the public mind, which aided the passage of the next best measure that could be brought forward. Mr. Foote very properly, I think, alluded to Benton in a favorite, quota tion: "The tyrant is laid in the dust—Rome is free;" which caused the clapping of hands in the ladies galleries as aforsaid, and the some what boisterous token of approval in the repor ters'gallery. The fact is, Mr. Benton has fin ished his career as a national man; and Foote has commenced his under the most glorious aus pices. Col. Jefferson Davis said something a bout Mr. Foote not being supported in his State; but I rallier think Col. Davis is mistaken, and that Gen. Foote's patriotic statesmanship will go quite as far in Mississippi as Col. Jeff. Da vis's. Suum cuique. With the exception of half a dozen madcaps, ! I must say that the ultras, North and South, j are reconciled to their fate; though it is but jus tice to the South to say that they have set the best example of forbearance under the circum stances. Hale, who is the wit and jester of the Free Soil faction, observed yesterday, laughing ly, to a gentleman known to be an ardent lover of the compromise, "Things are going on well: we shall get rid of the fanatics before the end of the session." Seward doesyiot bear his rever-» ses quite as well; though, as a shrewd gambler in politics, ho endeavors to conceal his mortifi cation and his hand. The news of the harmonious action of the New York Democratic Convention, at Syracuse and of the fraternization of Barnburners and Hunkers in the Empire State, has created quite a sensation here. The wise ones believe that the union is not yet so complete but that it may be severed again on a presidential canvass; but that, I think, rather doubtful. Some of the leaders may become dissatisfied, but the masses cannot be moved without an issue. The prob ability is that the Whigs of New York, by the movements of Gov. Seward, will find them selves in the same perdicament in which the Democrats found themselves in 1848. Chaque d son tour. It is doubtful whether the Bounty Land bill will pass the Senate. le diable boiteux. CP From the cradle to the grave, we are the victims of taxation. The rich men has his prop erty tax, the sailor his ship tacks, the wig-wear er his poll-tax, and even the boy, "trudging like a snail, unwillingly, to school," has his syntax. CP Clarke's Ferry Bridge, which crosses the Susquehannah river seventeen miles above Har risburg, was destroyed by fire on the 10th inst It is supposed to have been the work of an in cendiary. It was an elegant structure, half a mile long, and cost $120,000. The Fate of Genius .—There is in this city, says the Boston Mail, an old man of sixty, who graduated at the University of Dublin, Ire land, at the age of twenty-two, was admitted as a surgeon in the British army, and in that ca pacity visited this country with the English; was present at the destruction of the public buildings, stores, &c., at Washington city; has been in India with the British army; has been present, during his service as a surgeon, ut over four thousand amputations, and fifteen severe balt 'es; was shot twice, performed surgical operations on three wounded generals, seven colonels, twenty captains, and over eleven thou sand officers of smaller grade, &c., has dined with two kings, one Empress, one Emperor, the Sultan, a Pope, innumerable great generals, &c. Has held in his hand the largest diamond in the world except one. Has had the British crown in his hand. Has been married three times, a father of eleven children, all of whom he has survived. Broken down by disease, too poor to live without employment, and too proud to become a pauper, he sailed in an eml grant vessel to this country three years ago: and this man of remarkable adventures, classic education, master of four languages, sixty years of age, poor, old, decaying, is now ped dling oranges and apples in the streets in this city ! We know what we are—verily we know not what we may be ! (EF Four men were recently taken from a raft at sea, who state that they were part of the crew of the English barque Messenger, from St. John, N. B., bouud to Liverpool. They al lege that the vessel capsized, and that ten of the crew, including officers, were drowned. O" A venerable looking old man, upwards of 70 years of age, was convicted of forgery in the Philidelphia Court of Quarter sessions on Fri day. The accused was formerly a teacher of writing and the forgery was committed on one of his pupils. The Tariff.— Whig Caucus*. —A Washing ton dispatch of the 12th, says: There was a whig caucus held last night up on the tariff question. It was resolved to move the substitution of a home valuation specific duty clause for the present ad valorem system as an amendment to the appropriation bill when it comes from the Senate. CP The Paris correspondent of the National Intelligencer mentions the following: Balloon ascensions a ,- e still the favorite amusement here. Hardly a day passes but we have an entertainment, of the sort. Lieutenant Gale, of the English Navv, is in Paris with a re markabl y fine balloon. He has made many as censions' of extraordinary da.iing. Having made known his willingness to accept com panions in his serial voyages at the rate of six w ty dollars per seat, one hundred and fifty appli cations were made to him in the course of four days. Among them are noticed the names of many distinguished political characters, literary inenj artists,and savans of the capital. CPThe last article in the code of etiquette at the watering places, as laid down by nor; hern usage, is that the people who are engaged to be married, walk to the table together. CP Edwin Forrest, the tragedian, was arres ted at the Astor House, New-York, on Wednes day, on the complaint of Catherine Forrest, bis wife, and held to bail in the sum of $10,000 to keep the peace so far as Mrs. F. is concerned she being fearful of an assault from him. An. injunction has also been granted to restrain Mr. Forrest from conveying away his property to the injury of the right which Mrs. F. has there in. Mrs. F. has also, within a few days, com menced a snit in the courts of that State for divorce against Mr. Forrest. CPThe following, which we find in an ex change, has a pretty good smack to it: Why is a good sermon like a kiss? do you give it up? Because it only requires two heads and an appli cation?
