cnmuUtlng an immense supply of gold- We
are no louder obliged to depend upon other
aatlousfor this valuable article. The only
problem is. how we can best retain a fair pro
portfop' oj’ that 'dug gpitilMm our own soil.
Kethods to effect thb) end are constantly being
i suggested- They are naturally as divorsifled
i in their character bs the l political : training of
i those who originate , them. \ artous nations
I have- at different times, prohibited,’ by direct
I -legislation, under heavy penalties, the expor
! tattoo of the precious metals : but vvitli coni
i mercial countries this experiment has always
proved an utter ihllure. no matter how absolute
i and despotic the Governments which attempted,
it. nor how arbitrary the measures devised to
secure ltd success. The laws of trade will in
evitably, above such legal enactments, and
the master passion-of avarice boldly drive font
horse coaches , through such barriers. High’
protectionists point to their favorite. tariff sys
tem ■* a safeguard against the exportation bf
gold. . In their, eagerness to develop, manufac
turing interests, whether adapted to the na
tional gepius and: taste or not. they would not
hesitate to impose enormous burdens upon the
American pe6pie: t 0 fetter, and in » great
measure tonestroy. a commercial interest which
now nearly equals. aud soon will far exceed,
that :of any i'nation :on the globe,f and to
dam up the outlet of the agricultural pro-,
dnctlons of the great granary of the world. 1 Wo

sepm* clear that the. only legitimate policy
Which the Goremtoent can pursue to

against ourconunerclal and agricultural inte-.

diminishing the exportation of gold, jf we.
-could- combine our present large exportation,
Of’other articles with more limited 'importa
tions: . Some. of. our heaviest articles
port. liowever. we neither produce at all, or,
evidently cannot supply in sufficientquantitles
, the existing demand, and a protective 1
tariff woidd be of no avail in checking their*
importation: Our imports for of coffee
and tea, were very large: of sugar. $21,295,161;
of .woolens: $80,705,181: of linen fabrics,
$11009797 of silk fabres $30,836,998.
’Against ail these, and thousands of other ar
ticle^/./swelling: our aggregate imports to
$311,689,913. ;■ oar.:, excess of exportation
over: importation of gold was $11,537,858.
The: value of the finer materials, of ouf ap
parel .imported. therefore, fhr . exceeded our
exportation of gold, The value of our silks
Md linens equalled it., Our broad cloth coats
ffld otherwolleus added to the cost of segars,
brandies, wines, anda few other etcitcraa of
luxurious consumption equalled it. .The value
i of our importation of sugar was one half as
great as onr exportation of gold, and if to the
‘fermer are added our Importations of tea and
coffee the amount would no’doubt far exceed
the latter. :
.'•Ho nation in the world is so deeply inter
ested In the cultiraijon.of commerce 'as our
own. Our extensive sea board-constantly in
vites us to this pursuit, and the redundance, of
our agricultural productions compels us to
seek a market abroad, it we prosecute the
operations for which so extended a theatre is
afforded us witfl any degree of vigor whatever,
The value of our exports from 1821 to 1850,
inclusive, of breadstuff's and provisions was
I $796,022,257: .of cotton. $1,958,680,098; of
tobacco.' $280,528,946 : of rice. $78,918,08]].
A nation: capable of such productions cannot
wisely, entertain for a moment the -idea of fet
tering her commerce.
How then axe we to retoin our
do not believe that »»r
gitimate method home by pil
ing in ifdiitinwnVfrT'iiil bank notes of small de
nominations. and thus rendering it necessary
that smsU gold coins should pass into universal
use. This is the true and only remedy. Our gold
goes abroad because other hations.which do hot
issne small notes, require it for their ordinary
circulating medium, and are eager to minister
to . our extravagance to obtain the precious
metals. We make no serious effort to obtain
a metallic currency for -onr small business
transactions. We are satisfied ■ with bask
notes. We are still willing to ran the gaunt
let of counterfeiting,:.defaulting, and bank
breaking dangers. We authorize our legisla
tors to bestow banking privileges to an im
mense number of corporations., and to allow
them to issue notes of small denominations of
$5. and. even $3. $2 and $l. , The worst cur
rency always attains the . greatest circulation.
In the presence of small notes gold vanishes,
or is left to accumulate in the hands of brokers
and bankers, readyio.ahswer the call of any
merchants: who desire to obtain it in large
quantities - for foreign ‘ goods. Reverse this
system., and a marked and , speedy ' change
would aeon, occur. .Drive out small, notes
from circulation, and when a California ate imer
arrives ahundred channels in our own cbiiratry
would ■ eagerly. seek its goldon- height to fill
tho vacuum; and this counter-demand would,
without serious inconvenience or detriment to
tho general business of the-countiy, keep our
gold at borne, at least. until all onr legitimate
wants were supplied, and our Circulating me

.• .While: we have ample opportunities of se
curing the best, we really, have the worst, cur
rency In the world: We make no serious ef
fort to retain our gold and apply, it toils proper
use as .a. measure of value. If frequently hap
pens that those who clamor roost about' the ex
portation of ,it are closely. wedded* to a paper
currency of small denominations, and large

continue to flood them wltit small notes and
leave onr gold lie idle in the great cities until
Its .very-abundance tempts the. cupidity of
these engaged in foreign trade, and urges them
on to extensive importations, we cannot expect
. to retain much of it; but it will continue to flow
out to those who more justly estimate its
value, and ..who apply it to.its legitimate pur
poses of general circulation.
There. Is little rosson to doubt that tho
framers of. the, Constitution of tbe United
i States keenly appreciated the importance of a
i metallic currency, and.earnestly desired that it
might form the.princtpa! portion of the circu
lating medium of the couniry. They hod
been subjected to the .most tlrigblfol evils of a
depreciated paper currency during the revolu
tion. - They had, seen $lOO ,of these « pro
mises to pBy-: scarcely,sn equivalent for a
single meal, and $l,OOO of them necessary
to buy an articlhof apparel. They had learned
how dangerous it was, to pnt their trust in notes
issued even by the different States of the Union,
With tbeir whole resources impliedly pledged
lor their redemption., Hence the Constitution
declares, that no State shall “ emit bills of
credit." nor “make anything but gold and
silver coin, a tender In payment of debts,”
Tbe fundamental law of-the -land thus empha
tically recognises tbe right of the creditor to
exact from the debtor not merely a paper re
presentative of money, bat money itself--
“gold and Silver coin"—possessing intrinsic
vaine proportioned to .the amount of hls ciaim.

THE PiUdaV, AUGUST. 14, 18«.
[Correspondence o t The pres*,] , ,
WAsaiKoion, August 12, 1857.
Next to the outbreak in India, in importance, ia
the condition of the ootton-growlng interest to the
people of Great Britain, and to the manufacturing
world* In Bngland the cotton an*
suaUy ia 900,000,000 pounds, 700,000 work-people
arO engaged inthe trade, and a"population of from'
8,000,000 to 4,000,000 are Indirectly dependent upon
It. At of 1857 there was on hand a
stock of zflr material equal to about twelve weeks’
consumption. Cotton has risen 36 per cent, within
the last two ' years, and the corresponding rise in
the manufactured artiole Is not more than from 20
to 25 per cent. The supply is not equal to the de
maud. A few yean ago & movement was started
for the culture of cotton in Algesia, and with wbat
success will be seen by a statAhii just received
from John J. Mahoriy, Colßil of the. United
States atAlglors, He sjtys that the Sea Island,
lopg-stapled, and Nankin or yellow species of cot*
ton, are, cultivated in Algeria. They are all an*
nuals. In the summer of 1854 the planters were
to try to make these varieties perennial,
by lotting the plants stand fbr the ensuing season.
With a few isolated exceptions, however, they were
killed by the winter rains. Tbo long-stapled va
riety is cultivated to the best advantage*, as; being
firot to mature, it Is less exposed to the autumnal,
rains than the other shrta.
The cotton-plant biid been grown With varying
'success in the'Botanical Nurseries since 1847,
when, three years Ago, the Emperor offered a
bounty to encourage Its cultivation in Algeria, and
the Government agreed to purchase, at several
times ita market, value, all that might bp grown
here. /The seed came from the United States,
through the French Consul at Charleston. But one
good specimen had been produced, wbloh was
grown in the province of Oran. The deterioration,
in every Sense of the term, is so rapid that im*
ported seed is Required almost every year.
Tho product of 1854 amounted to 180,652 pounds!*
There are no manufactories of ootton In Algeria;
the entire crop is exported to Havre, where it is
sold on account of the Frenoh Government. !
It,is impossible to ascertain the cost of producing
cation in. Algeria, but something may be
fTom the fact that, notwithstanding the high prjeea
paid by the Government, its cultivation U for the '
most partabandoned because of its unprofitableness.
The soil is doubtless well adapted to Us production,
but the ollmato is unfavorable, in oousequenoe of
tbe lack'of rain, the very light dews, the heat of
stunmer, and the almost incessant rains of autumn*
The experiment in Algeria has failed, and munu
faotnrers cannot look there for an inorease of the
B “PPIy- „
The 250,000,000 pounds raised annually by Wes
tern India will bo affected, without doubt, by the
Indian revolt.
The Xlnlteil'Stitea'has Great Britain bound to
keep tka poace towftrd them, with fetters stronger
than." steel.” -Even daring the lest
yoMywhen the British sujiply from India was
128,000,000 pounds—wa furnished her with 1
fOUr-llfths of the quantity she Consumed. .
This ootton was sieve growh,-and afforded us
the' means,-with tobacco, to itak'h somo show of
keeping up a balance of trade with foreign coun
tries. Ido not think, then, under all Uw etroua
etances, that the cotton manuteoturpn on tlte
other side of tho water will look with anyuomplal
sanoe upon the new echeme to do away with the
only produotive laborers of tbe cotton fields of the
South, the only quarter of they World to which the
ootton mannfaoturersof Manohener and IdMl can'
look with any certainty for a continuous supply of

We had five minutes’ conversation, yesterday,
with an intelligent Scottish gentleman, who left
Glasgow on tbe 29th ult. He mentions that the
general feeling Jn Scotland was tn favor of Mxdx
leikb Smith. It was generally considered that :
sho was more sinned against than sinning, and U
was not supposed that sbo really had~ committed
murder. The trial took place at Edinburgh, usd
not in Glasgow, (where she lived, and whore the
alleged crimo was said to have been committed,)
because so much excitement prevailed in Glas
gow, that tbo proceedings oould soateoly hare
been carried on there with necessary decorum,.
It is true that a very large fund was raised by
subscription to defend her. She bore up with ap

fully up to hti Income. Madeleine Smith, wo
learn, had no idea of visiting the United States.
Hor purpose, the execution of which was delayed
by her mother's dangerous illness, is to go to India,
where she has rich relatives. L’Anqklier, we
learn, was a flirting, frivolous young follow,
danced well, and though his intellect was low, was
a general favorite with the steady “ bonny lassies”
of Scotland. He Is very much unlamented, and It
was believed that his attention to Miss Smith was
on acoounnt of her reported wealth.

' The Good wood Cup.
The Goodwood Cup for this year is really what
It professes to be—a cup, and not a palm tree, a
group of pugnaoious warriors, or flying steeds. It Is
a noble vase of exodlced silver in the ornamented
or renaissance style of the sixteenth century, and
is, beyond all doubt, one of tho most effeotive and
artistic imitations of the medimv&l silver work
which has yet been produced. The uppor part is
subdued And simple in style, being only ornamented
with flat engraving of ivy loaves and berrios upon
a bright matted ground. The handles form an al
together novel and striking combination, and are
wlntorlaeed in the quaint elaborate style of the
renaissance period ns to nresont the .effect of-four
winged figures of Famo rising from their hose.—
The body is adorned with a finely executed bas re
lief at Queen Elizabeth reviewing the English for
eosnesr Tilbury. The figures are beautifully chaßod
and grouped with excellent-taste, and thooostumes
of the soldiery are taken from tho best authorities;
tho features and dress of tho Queen from the coins
of her reign. The opposite side has an ornamental
tabtyt foy Tnseript[on, ourlched with bosses, wreaths
and sunken damascene-Work. Tho foot Is formed
by crowned tritons supporting chased medallion
portraits after Uolbrin, of Lora Burleigh and Sir
Francis Drake, The general effect oftbe whole
piece is unusually striking and attractive, and the
Imitations of the steeled damascene being perfect,
gives the vase the'aspect of an antique piece of
Family plate rather Qian a work fresh from -the
jeweller. The design modeling is by Mr. Armstead
—the workmanship such, as only oomes from Han
IhdUh Hostilities— The California Express
is Informed that an outbreak.oeourred on Sunday
last, About eight mile* abovevßidweU’s Bar, be
tweek the Indians and whites. lt appears that an
Indian was killed during the latter part of lost
week. In that neighborhood, and some one informed
them that a Mr. Newcomb,who lived iu tho vicinity,
was tho aggressor, and tho Indians thereupon sent
word to Nuwoomb to remove his women and chil
dren, as they intended to visit and kill him And
bum his house. On this information being re
ceived, Newcomb sent his family to BidwOU’s Bar,
and informed the sheriff of Butte county of their
threats, when he immediately proceeded to the
plaoe, with about fifty men. It is rumored that
the Indians mutter five hundred strong.
4 Sad Sight*—W o saw yesterday afternoon,;
at the Central Polloe Station, a young man of very
respectable family, who was arrested on the charge
of larceny. A few years ago he was an Industrious
student at college, and for a little youthful India*
clretion he was expelled—sent into busy life with'
thU disgrace hanging about him. Away from home
and friends, he formed the acquaintance of evil
companions, and a love of atrongdriok was at once
acquired. Lost to all parental restraint, he re
linquished his books, and to-day, though ho has
just reaobed man’s estate, he is in our prison walls,
a confirmed drunkard, charged with crime! We
thought, as we gated on the young man, after he
had been committed by Alderman Ernie, of the in
sididOfcrogresa of intemperance, and its Influence
upon m still early days. How vainly its viotima
strive to break asunder .its unyielding fetters, and,
while contending, are struck down by its iron
hand, and hastened, rapidly hastened, to the dark
gloom of destruction! Sad, sad indeed, is tho tale
of woe, of sleepless night 9, bitter tears, and broken
hearts, that comes to ns like tho low wail of a men
dicant on a cold winter’s night, and causes ns to
weep over the sorrowful fate of those near and dear
to ns—our co-heirs to immortality, who have been
wrecked on the ocean.of life.
Under these baneful influences of intemperance,
how many a home has been deserted that might have
been a perpetual scene of domestic joy! How many
hearts have been left without One solitary ray of
comfort to cheer them, that might have beat in
unison with the warm impulses of its fellows! and
how many an intelleot, oppressed with the inoubus
of deadly thoughts, has been racked and ruined,
that might have the'literary coronet of a
nation, or swayed its council halls ! Many thore
have been who are now forever crushed under the
potent energies of the demon of intemporance,
that might have played a useful and important
part in the drama of existence, or under the sway of
religious Ihfluonoes, trodden the peaceful walk's of
private life In the dispensation of joy and charity
to multitudes around them. But what is the reality
of to-day? Ask the widowed mother’s heart—ask
the orphan—the policeman’s role—the judge’s sen
tence—the gibbet and the scaffold.
“Ask death-beds—they can tell.”
The records at the Mayor’s office fully sustain
the assertion that our own city is the daily 'scene
of debauchery, and every metropolis, moroorless,
contains those who, through constant-strong drink,
have become flnMliar with crime, and whose career
Is characterized by destructive dissipation. This
vice is not confined to one circle, *bufc s{breads to
thousands who are eventually sacrificed at its
shrine. Ono dram is the initiatory step till an ac
cumulation breeds a fiery Gehenna within them,
till from their mind and body
11 Life and thought have gone, -
Aide by side.”
and there is loft a' progeny that will perhaps date
thoir earthly ruin, from their father’s fate, and a
wori’d that will either speak in pity or in scorn of
the drunkard’s end.
Put in motion or irritation one organ of tho
body, and there Is given an impetus to a violent
dUtemper; raok the brain and a deadly fire con
sumes, and madness takes the place where, under
better self-disoipline, might have existed healthy
vigor: thus, like the action of wave on wave, intem
perance is tho cause whioh sets in motion the un
healthy currents of disease which continue to the
end of time. 60 by it in the moral world are Tice
and orime disseminated; and so, whether physical
ly morally, or mentally, the nation of to-day fore
shadows that of to-morrow, and tells ns, by the
character and energies of our people, whether we
shall be a race of weaklings, ora nation of kings.
Ever following the wheel of progress, the still
shadowy past, like a ghostly seer, points to the
future, and bids us shun the evils that havo besot
and ruined those who have lived before os, and
specks in warning tones of the enervation and
downfall of etder and trans-Atlantia nations.
Aa with them, so 1 Uis with individuals, and the
little realm whioh we have within us, by a disre
gard of wholesome precepts, becomes as total a
wreck as a dismembered empire. Happy, Indeed,
would it be if all would live like the elder Roman
' rather than the Bacchanalian; like the old Con
sul, who, in his narrow* toga, felt that he was en
shrouded In a mantle of virtue, alike invulnerable
to indolent luxury or immoderate excess.

Warden of the City Prison, to which she had been
formally committed by the warrant of Justice Da

Upon the reoeipt of the above letter thlfr morning,
Mr. Hail despatched Officer Smith, of the First Dis

ments to remove Mrs. Cunningham to the Tombs as
quiokly and quietly at possible. Officer Smith and
Cant. Dilks proceeded to the house,about 0 o’clock,
ana informed Mrs. Cunningham of their errand.
Her daughters were with her, and as 'soon as the
subject was broached. Augusta, the eldest, who has
for some tinjo.been ill of • a nervous disorder, fell in
a fainting fit. She was revived with eomedifficUlty,
only to relapse into another. • Medical attendance

Mrs. Cunningham rode away from No. 31 Bond

Not above fifty persons were assembled in the
street when the carriage drove away, The crowd
consisted of servants from the neighboring house*,
a fewtahance foot panongert, and two reporters.
Silence prevailed wnUe’hfrs, Cunningham was be

Capt. Duke if one of the bundles he brought out
contained the baby. As the carriage disappeared,
however, various'remarks wore Indulged In.
The carriage drove through Broadway and
Leonard streets, and reached the Tombs, at fifteen
minutes before twelve o’clock. Here a crowd of
fifty persons collected, curious to catch a glimpse
of the notorious woman, bat she was burned
