Railroad Cheering News We learn from Mr. Woodward, who lias just returned from Zanosville, thut a meeting of the Board of Directors of the Cincinnati, Wilmington and Zanrxvillu Ruilroad Com pany, was held there on yestcrsduy. Lttst evening:, a railroad supper wag given by the citizens of that dry. The utmoBt enthusi asm, and our friend of tho Scioto flu,. it,, to I the contrary notwithstanding, the uUnost harmony prevailed. In a very short time, . Thursday Evcuiiitf Sopt., , thirty-four thousand dollars was subscribed to imc capital etock of tho company and no subscription less than one thousand dollarr. Thirty citizens subscribed thirty thousand dollars. It is expected that, in a few duvs. .ti'ii 1848, complimentary dinner was given to" Gen. Scott, and Gen. Shields was pros- ent. Ho holds a high pomtibn in the ranks anu wo i;umiut:nu itioiu- cfthe opposition marks and opinion American Patriots, ' not to men who would sender tho best aud bravest of the sons of America. Tho fol-. t lowing toast was given: ' fc-vTBE VoLUBTffEBS OF THE . UNITED STATES, . (the Brigadier General of the some now pres , ent:),: A worthy, chieftain of that heroic tana whohAve conspicuously carried out tho " heroic oounsol of the Spartivo mothers, to 'return cither with or upon their "Shields." 'i . . General Shields rose and said: "Mr. Pres. ildeut, with your permisBion and the .consent "of the company, I wish, as a subordinate of ficerof the 'American army, to give the , health of that distinguished commander un " jfler whom my honorablo and gallant friend ' and myself have had the honor to serve. I feel it due from me to Gen. Scott applause first as one of the officers haviug returned , from the head-quarters of the army which he rso nobly and successfully ..commanded. I think it still further due, returning as I do J with a conviction that that army has been ieommanded in such a manner by Gen. Scott ' as to call forth tho applause, and admiration, and high regard, not only of his country f men. but of the whole world. It would be a "useless and foolish undertaking on my part to.'attempt adequately to describe before this intelligent assembly the skill and high military knowledge displayed by Gen. Scott in the conduct of that Army, from its land ing at Vera Cruz until it entered the garita (at Mexico. If I should attempt tho task I should fail. I could not portray with just ness the conduct of that distinguished com mander in the hazzardous enterprise in which he has been engaged. But I will say this, that in the history of the world in the annals of all military afluirs and enterprises that I have ever read, I find no entorp'riso comparuhlo with the capture or Vera Cruz. One of tnc strongest positions in the world- so strong, indeed, tlmt it was deemed olmost impregnable by tho military minds of tho 'world, and yet on a roast the inost difficult of jiccoxs in the work, it fell before a" army o1 . . ... - i . e ... l.. ... twelve thousand men wun a iow u. umy i score. (Applause.) And. the same skill which enabled him to accomplish this under taking, marked every myvemcntof his pro gress until ho entered the gates of Mexico" In the remarks of Mnj. General Jessup, rc- . specting the bruvery and gallantry nndintel gence of the officers of our army, I heurtly concur. Neither England, France, or any ' other country in the world has such a body of intelligent young officers in iiie Bold as those who accompanied Gen. Scott into the city of Mexico, and if ever I entertained a thought against West Point,! now-make tho amende honorable, and recall any thing to the prejudice of that institution that I muy have thomrht or uttered. (Great applause.) So, it is with regard to Gcn; Scott. . If I ever harbored aught against him, politically or otherwise for a "hasty plate of soup'(laugh iter) or slow plate ofsoup I reca.l it all, and make the amende to him also, and soy that I should be very unwilling to see any other man take ail army of ten thousand men into tho valley of Mexico, and attempt to lead them in safety. . Such an undertaking re quires not' only unquestionable bravery of the soldier and gallantry of the officer, but a great superintending military mind, that had conquered arid mado himself master of his profession, and thus fitted him&clf to accom plish such an almost miraculous enterprise. With yoffr permission, Mr. President, and that of the company, Igiveyou tho health of - Major General .Winfiuld .Scott."

We nnnounoed yesterday thutthe ex ecutive committee of tho Union party of Ga. had withdrawn the Pierce electoral ticket, nominated ut Milleilccville, and declared the party dissolved. The address of the com'; mittce has since come to hum!, and we learn from it that this step hus been taken in con sequence of the fact that all piirtiesin Geor gia now advocate the compromise, und that the Union whifs, to a considerable extent, have shown a determination nut to adhere to tho ticket, but to support either Webster or Scott. The committee was composed of seven, and five of them have published t n address 'o tho Union Democrats and Whigr, who muy be for Pierce and Kinp, urging theur to meet at Atlautu, on the 18th of Sept., to determine on their future course, They uvow their readiness to support tho regular Pierce and King electors, provided the original friends of the hitter ticket are willing to conciliate and compromise with them. There are still three electoral tick ets in tho field in Georgia one for Scott and Graham, the second for Webster and Jenkins, and tho third for Pierce and Kinf. Tho law requires the successful ticket to have a clear majority of all the votes cast. The Sacs and 1 ox Indians, now on a visit to Washington, visited the Department of the Commissoners of Indians all'nirs, on Thursday, when Major Mix, the chief clerk, in the uhseeuce of Col. Leu, asrtirod them that their Great Father would give luc-m a form a I interview ufter the adjournment of congress, and in the meantime every atten tion would be paid to their comfort and pleasure. The Indians expressed them selves highly gratified at Major Mix's re marks. Among tl o delegation, consisting of eight, is a son of the celebrated Keokuk, who visited Washington in 1S37. Ihe Sacs miiiib?r lit this time about thirteen hundred souls: the Poxes about seveii hund red. The tribe still retains its love of sav age life and manners beyond almost all oth ers of the removed Indians on our borders. They dislike schools, missionaries, und even dwellings and many of thein yearn to go further West, that they may be still more distant from civilization, as well as nearer the buffalo und other garni?. Their efforts at cultivation have been very feeble, though they inhabit a line oountry, well adapted to successful agriculture. The tribe has a fund ot thirty thousand dollars. The Henry Clay Disaster. An appli cation for a discharge of tho writ of habeas corpus, in tho case of tho parties implicated in the Ilenrv Clay disaster, was ' made in tho Supreme Court of New York, on Thurs day, and Tuesday next set apart tor its Hear ing. The .principal points of tho applica tion are, that tho case does not come with in tho meaning of the State law defining murder, there having been no intention to take life, and the nurties not in the perpe tration of, any felony or misdemeanor, at the time, from which death ensued; Uiat tne boiler was not overcharged so as to burst, as it did not burst, and tho allegation that an undue heat had been caused for an unlawful purpose not being sufficient; they also claim that the United States nave exclusive con trol, whore a law of Congress exiwts, over all transactions connected with navigation, m tide-waters, as well as at sea, and that they are already under arrest on process from the U.
