There are some other facts worthy the notice of
On Thursday (Thanksgiving) we asked one of
',the Overseers how many of our citizens depended
upon them for support We had for an answer.
"Than are about five or six hundred who receive con
stant or occasional relief from the city. I had ten
applications today." It is a moderate estimate to
say that there were at least two thousand people
in our prosperous city, who, on Thanksgiving
night, went hungry to bed. We bare a large jail
well filled with human beings, charged with differ
ent degrees of offence, from murder down to va
grancy; and then there is that more stupendous
and magnificent structure over the river; it too, is
well tenanted. Next, think of the hospital, or,
rather, the old Water Works coal shed—it is
crowded with men and disease. Twee were sent
there=the best home the world afforded them—on
Thanksgiving day. How many drunken men
were reeling through . the streets, lanes and alleTs,
and lying in hovels, cellars and garrets, in fash
ionable boarding houses and private parlors, on this
same day 1 The reader may calculate for himself ,
—we say one thousand..
We beg to dissent from the declarations made
by our Senior, in the Post of Thursday morning, I I
that "our land has been a favored land." Compara
tively it may be; but until there is at least a chance
for the low to rise, and the high to become virtu
ous and happy, we contend, to say the least, that
there is room—there is absolute necessity—for
thorough reform. How, when, or where a change
Tor the better is to take: place, we leave for our
wise, sane arid practicable citizens to determine.
But come in some sh'ape it must, as sure as God
is just and merciful; and that quickly. [All things,

order of the Sons of Temperance. The different
Divisions met at the Hall, corner of 3d and Wood,
on the morning, and formed a procession. proceed ;
ing thence to the steamer Resort, which had been
chartered for the occasion. White's celebrated
band accompanied them. The number in proces

At about noon the Resort arrived at Elizabeth
town. The reception of the Pittsburgh brethren
by the El Dorado Division of that town was most
cordial. An excellent dinner was in readiness; it
had-been prepared by the ladies of the town. After
paytaking heartily they again - formed in procession

the Throne of Grace, and a Temperance Ode sang
by. the.. choir.
Wx. E. Amami., Esq., of this city, upon whom
the duty dovolved by previous appointment by the
ladies of Elizabeth, presented a splendid edition of
the Bible to the El Dorado Division of the Sons of
Temperance. His address is reported to have been
brief, elegant and appropriate. The Book was re
ceived on behalf of the Division by iss. G. Rasa,
Esq. His speech is well spoken of by those who
had the good fortune to hear it. We trust the ed.

cession was again formed, and to the music of the

the people on the shore.
With the exceptions of the cold weather and the,
crowded state of the little steamer, the day was
passed pleasantly, and Gov. Shunk received the
thanks of every devoted Son for the appointment
of Thursday as a Day of Thanksgiving.
Filson Festival.—On Thursday, we are pleased
to learn, the prisoners in the jail were treated to an
excellent dinner. The refreshments were furnish
ed, in part by some of our liberal citizen,, but
principally by Mr. Sheriff Forsyth. A table was
set in , the Hall, well supplied with the luxuries of
the season. The style in which it was got up was
equal in all respects to public dinners generally.;
and the poor prisoners (all except Reidel) partook
with a hearty zest. "Afterthe cloth was removed,"
the Rev. Teasdale, - a name associated with innu
merable acts of charity and benevolence, delivered
an appropriate address. We trust he did not
throw pearls before swine, but that his exhortation
may have a good influence upon those for whom it
was intended. -
-Sheriff Forsytb, though he was treated rather
roughly by excited politicians previous to the
election, has given satisfaction, thus far, and we
doubt not be will make a good officer. We greatly
commend his kindness to the prisoners; and they
must be a hardened set if they ever forget his treat
ment towards them on Thursday,
Suffrage Neeting.,—We put the proceedings of
the Suffrage Meeting, held, by our colored citizens,
in band for publication in Thursday's paper, but
it was accidentally omitted. They are now too
old for insertion.
It was resolved to hold-a county Convention in

during the past six months may not have deaden

little daughter, only ten years of age, who testified
with so much candor on the trial of her•father, ex
cited deep interest among those who heard her.
She gave evidence of intelligence not common to
children so young and raised under such unfavora

and educatillt. By kindness and charity to the
father, she may receive both.
We trust the former friends of poor Beatson

Z°' There is an impression abroad that Mrs.
Reidel was to be raised by order of court. There
was no foundation for this rumor. The Court has
no power to issue any such order.
—Reidel was visited yesterday by Mr. Alden,
his attorney, and others. He most earnestly as
serts his innocence, and says that to his la.stbreath
he will assert it. lie appears still anxious that
his wife should b,l taken up and her scull exami
ned by surgeons. He believes if this was done it
would be found to be unbroken. It is still the in
tention of his lawyers to make a motion for a new
trial; and (we are told) should they fail in thiaand
sentence of death be pronounced upon him, they
will, as alast resort, apply to the legislature for a
ecy. We understand that-the Thanksgiving ser
mon delivered by Dr. Rinntz, will be published.
We are glad to hear it. Every effort of this 'rev

Gone to Baltimore.—Officer Fox started yester
day with Haag, the burglar, to Baltimore. Haag
was ironed. He will there have justice done him.
It is expected that an officer from Baltimore will
be in town today for the prisoner. The object of the
authorities in that city sending for him, (our city
constables think,) is to avoid paying the reward.
Fox will deliver him up to the Warden of the Bal
timore Jail, and claim the UN offered, but wheth
er he can get it or not we have no idea, though we
are well satisfied he ought to have it. To Richards
and himself the reward belongs.

Mexican Piratical Letters of Marque.
Information has been receivi'd at New Orleans,
says the Picayune, that the steamship Flag, on its
last trip from Vera Cruz to Havana, took out 300
letters of marque, with naturalization papers, con
firming the rights and privileges. of Mexican citi
zens on all who would sail under them. This in
formation comes in an authentic form. It was
dated at Mexico on the 30th ult , and reached Vera
Cruz on the evening that the letters bythe Flag
were mailed, and from thence reached here by way.
A letter frem Havana has also been received
here, announcing the arrival of letters of marque.

PIONTZRICT, Mexicorant. /BdB
. Dear Brothir:—l am happy to tell you that
am alive and enjoying good health. We have had
many hardships to contend with since I wrote
you last; which you know araconsiderable in time
of vrar. :We lett Carnargo, the gist of August for
Monterey doubting that we rild have a - battle
there, but before we got within three Miles of the
city; we heard the big guns roan firing at some of
our Texan Rangers, which Were reconnoitering.
We lay here two days; and after finding out the
enemy's position, we were divided into three divis•
ions,either to attack or to be attacked. I was in
the second division under command of ten. Worth.
We were to attack. them in the rear, smiths other
two divisions in the front of the city: After •let. ,
ting in their rear without any injury, 'we lay on
our mire a half day, to find out their position.--
The sth and 7th Regiments advanced : to' storm
their batteries, under a fire of grape - and Musketry,
and soon Was in possession of one; and ten minutes
more, another; and by daylight 'twit morning; the
third. On this mountain, which was four hundred
feet high, we carried one of our big guns
soon routed them out of their Cistle, which was
turned into a fort. We took, four batteries in'
twelve hours time. This last last:mound is four]
hundred feet high and itirElOit psrpenfficular. Oori,
next attack was npon,the city. E very : house was',
a fort. This caused ns to have soll3Bhant fighting,l

ed at last, and then they gladly eturendered. The i
houses are one story high, with* breastwork on
the top three feet high. The Other two divisions!
took three forts in front of the tower, one of them;
after they got inside. They have turned over pret.
pertYto the amount of three-011itins:112-big
and a beautiful lety. Taking of these forts and
the city look as impossible as Bonaparte crossing
the Alps. Mexican army fifteen thousand strong;
Americans eight thousand five hundred. Yankees
killed, missing and wounded, six hundred; did not
ascertain the loss of Mexicans. This part of-Mex
ico is the beginning of their good country. It is
surrounded by mountain every thing yields. two
crops a year, with very little attendance; oranges
we gather here, y the bushel; great place for a
.Gen. Worth, after the battle Was over, returned
his thanks to the troops 'under his command say
ing:---"On the plains, on the mountain; in the
streets, and the houses, I was not deceived in my
brave soldiers; and I think the Mexicans know by
this time whether they were deceived or not, for
they might as well meet Tigers as us Yankees."

Plain Thoughts on the Tariff-Question.
14R. EDITOU :••••1 purpose to send you a few
brief articles on the subject or the Tariff; and al
though my views will differ somewhat from those
expressed in several of your own editorials, I trust
you will nor deny them a place"in your dernocratic
columns-dedicated as they are to the cause of
equal rights and free discussion. -
The fertility and ingenuity of invention dis
playedlor furnishing excutexfor our late defeat in
Pennsylvania reminds me Of story that lirinsley
Sheridan tell; of a. shooting expedition on which
he once went, accompanied by an Irish game
keeper. The witty orator was better at aiming a
jest than a fowling-piece, and more likely to make
hits on the floor of Parliament than in the game
premises. On this oceasionlie WOO came upon a
flock of birds, and banged awayebut they all flew
"Alt, your Honor," said his companion, uthat
was an tlegant shot, and came within an inch of
destroying the-whole of them."
Sheridan followed up the birds and fired again
with the same success.
" Upon me soul, your. -Honor frightened them
well that time," said the gamekeeper.
Sheridan followed on and Cued &third time-with
out ruffling a feather.
" Well done again, your honor," said his com
forter, "11l warrant your honor they'll remember
you for that shot as long as they. live."
And so they kept on, Sheridan Aring and missing
and the gamekeeper congratulating him on his ex
cellent skill as a marksman. In like manner we
see it stated that in one District we abrimr beat the
Whigs. In another their gains were not so great
"as might have been, expected under the circum•
stances." In a third, our party did not make an
effort. And in general, the nun is said to account
for the whole disaster. „, •
But these flimsy excuses , do not deceive our
selves, and can not deceive our opponents. Better
put them all aside, and confess what we all know
to be the truth. The people of Pionsylvania cast
their votes for Polk 'a el Dallas in the full confi
dence that the principle 'of protection would not
be disturbed. They ware deceived and betrayed
and they haVe risen in their majesty and rebuked
their unfaithful servants.
The Washington Union relies 'upon the "sober
second thoughts" of the people: an if the people of
Pennsylvania had never rhoughr on the result of
the tariff before this fall! If there is any subject
'upon which they have king add deeply meditated;
upon which their minds are fullY made up; and
which is deeply tooted in their affections; it is a
tariff for protection. They hire spoken in the
recent and they mean what they say. •_
' And . who are they who accuse_ the people: of
Pennsylvania of ignorance or infidelity to their
own inteiesta Democrats par excellence, forsooth!
itly understanding of Demecmcy is that it consists
in the free independent action of the , people—a
people ever zealous to support those who serve
them faithfully prompt to-reject those who betray
them. They who think it necessary to follow
their, leaders WhithenioeVer they go, may now

The Revenue cutter McLean struck - while at-

getting over until after the affair at Tobasco, and
the return of the vessels. Her marines, under Lieut
Brown, were on board the Bonita during the 25th
and 20th. All the prizes were duly dispatched,
and arrived at Anton Lizardo.
The Petria, on her return, under command of
Lieut. Best, captured the. American brig Plymoutli,
Capt. Parkerson, engaged ire landing cotton at Al
varado bar. Lieut. Irlorris died on the 4th, on
board' the Cumberland, and was buried with the
honors of war at Lizardo.
It will be seen by reading the cursors , report.
that the Comm.:Aim spares the , city out of feelings
of humanity. The inhabitants could not leave, as
the Governor would not permit'them; hence they
sought refuge in cellars during the cannonading;
and thus escaped destruction. Had it not been that
we were necessarily obliged to kill many innocent
persons before taking the city, Tobacco, at this
moment, would be ours., As it is, we have - paid
them dearly for, the shut that deprived. US of Lieat.
Morris. Long will they remember and dread the
return of the Americans.
The Mexican force was 350 regulartroops, with
four pieces of cannon, besides an unknoweaumber
of armed perrhants, all of whom were posted on
