-1:J-tension :of the Revenue Laws of the United
States over that•Vountry. ,
W•SIIINGTOPt. Sept. lot. 1846.
I wrote you a week ago that onr squadron in
the Pacitic would not long remain idle, having
rece i v ed positive instruction to be up and doing.
1 nowhave the pleasure of communicating the
following important news .
Commodores Sloat entered the harbor of Mon
terey, and on the 6th of July-issued his procla
mation to the inhabitants of California, calling
on them to remain peaceful, assuring them that
he did not come as the enemy of Californir, but
a s their friends—that they are destined to form
part and parcel - of the great federal union of the
United States, enjoying the same rights and
. v ileoes as the citizens of those States. They
should select their own civil officers and magi
strates, and enjoy all other privileges of freemen
o f which they are now in part or wholly de
prived. The same revenue laws should be in
force in California as in the United States, by
which means they would, as Californians and
members of the American Union, obtain provi
sions and manufactures of the United States
duty free, while all other imports would pay a
duty at least twenty-five per cent. less than is
t,ow levied on the same articles by the laws of
Mexico ; those who will not become citizens of
d ie great American confederacy, to depart in
peace with all their property, provided they lay
down their arms and remain in other respects
neutral. Ile enjoins them to retain their Alcades
and other magistrates till they should have bet
ter digested the particular form of government ,
they wish to adopt, and have had time to, elect
oilier officers in their places. All property of
private citizens, and particularly that of the
hutches, should be respected ; all supplies and
provisions paid for, on reasonable terms, and no
private prflperty, used for public purposes with
out proper compensation.
The proclamation is dated Savannan, harbor
of Monterey, and signed John B. Stoat, com
roinder-in-chicf of the U. S. forces in the Pa-
Captain Montgomery, of the - U. S. ship

and issued his summons to the inhabitants of
the country, in virtue of instructions from the
Commodore. The summons bears date July
In addition to the above news information
has reached here that Col. Fremont's advanced
pats have reached Sonoma, to the north of
San Francisco. Gen. Castro, Governor of
the Prov.nce, advanced at the head of his
troops to repulse them ; but the gallant Col.

headed by Governor PiCo, proclaiming Cali
fornia an hulepentlent Republic. Hereupon
the Mexican Governor. Castro, declared the
pro ice under martial law.
Goobs.—The opening sale of the sea
hibit prices greatly reduced from those
et fact year. Printing cloths, which last year
r 7, cents, have recently been sold at .1
,rots, and yet we are told that the new mills
ri afford to make them. Calicoes have fallen
,:itictlitng like the same proprotion. The
times are now quite as low here as in England
for common goods. Woollens too are very
c'leap, and our manufacturers hate acquired
such skill that they make, a beautiful casstmere
by 55 to 75 cents, and.yet save sometliing.—
There is nu fear of England, France or Germa
ny. nt such a market. Whether these prices
are !hr consequence of the excessive action tin
der a high tariff, or the apprehended influence
of a lower one, we cannot say. The low pri
ces which both Protectionists and Free Pra
yers have predicted as the consequence of high
proiertion, have come about and are present
with us. —Journal of commerce,
This is a very importaw matter to every con
sumer in the country—a reduction in the price
•of articles they extensively use of more than
/oily per cent. We do not bear that the wa
ges of the work f men employed in these factor
ies haven been reduced in the least. The re
duction in the prices of the articles must there
care come from the manufactureres profits.—
still, ills said, that they can afford to make
goods at these prices. This shows that the
cotton manufacturers of this country are fiXed
upon s tirm basis, and may now defy the com
petition of any one.

has given to every man an inalienable right by nature.
Resolved, That the fundamental principle upon

struction .of natural tights, and the extension of the
area of slavery.

COMPLIMENT TO AN AMERICAN SEA CAPTAIN.
—The British Government has sent a gold
medal to Captain Daniel P. Upton, of the ship
Governor Davis, belonging to Train & Co's
line of Liverpool packets, for his noble and hu
mane conduct in saving the lives of the crew of
the British ship Glenview, on a passage from

FROM SANTA FR.—Several Santa Fe traders
arrived at St. Louis last week, They brought
between fifty and sixty thousand dollars in spe
cie. They represent the travelling on the prai
ries as good, and the grass in excellent condition.
The news is not later than previous adt ices:—

SINGULAR DEATH AT NIAGARA FALLS.—Mn
Smart, of our city, on Monday. went with a
friend into the "cave of the winds." He at
tempted to climb a rock near the mouth of the
cave, but slipped, and was seen lying on his
back. Assistance was procured, lint he was
dead. It is thought that he was suffucare'd by
the rush at wind. •
JAYNE'S HAIR TONIC
We have heretofore 'numbered ourselves among those
who believed that the '• Hotr Tonic" prepared by Dr.
Jayne, was one of the many quark nostrums whose vir
tues are never seen beyond the fukonie pulTs of their au
thors. We arc willing, at length, to make public ac
knowledgments of the error of our belief. An intimate
friend, some two or three months since, all the top of
whose rraninm was as bald as a piece of polished marble,
maugre all our jesting and ridicule of the idea of attempt
ing to cuit;rafe so barren a spot, purchased a bottle or
two of the Ilair Tonic from Dr. Jayne, and, according
to his directions, applied it. During the present week
the same friend ushered himself into our presence, and
uncovering his hitherto naked bead, astonished us with
a thin, tho' luxuriant growth of hair, from one to two
Mae% in length—upon the very premises we had be
lieved as unyielding to cultivation as the trackless sand
thavalcirts the Atlantic. This is no puff, but is religious
ly true, and to those who doubt, the gentleman eats be
pointed out. What is more in favor of this "Tonic,"
the cash here cited was not one of temporary baldness—
no sudden loss of the hair—but was one of years stand
ing. though the gentleman is but forty-five years of age.
