some runaway negroes in the Jordan settle

lodged some seven or eight runaways, well
provided with the good things of life- -such as
homs, bacon, and a general assortment of gtO'
ceries. 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

Later From California.
The steanfship Falcon, II. J. Ilartstene, U.

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
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
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
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

If the following, which we take from the
Charleston Mercury, of the 21st ult., is not the
true, unadulterated, and real American protec

"Encourage y tut own Mechanics.— Do not
send abroad for help if you have work to do,

a course, you keep money at home, assist the

look amongyour neighbors, before you under

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

^ 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
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

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 !

The Tariff.— Whig Caucus*. —A Washing

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

as an amendment to the appropriation bill

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

made known his willingness to accept com
panions in his serial voyages at the rate of six

days. Among them are noticed the names of
many distinguished political characters, literary
inenj artists,and savans of the capital.

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
