, Mr. lanouousan„Golonial „Minister offing ,
'land, has addressed a significant circular to
'the Governor of every BritiskColOPY, strongly.
urging each as not to neglect, .that reasonabffi,
amount of warlike preparation dnrinc`peacep!
which it is desirable WA,' triery*ter4
maintained," and addintwhitkis true
that the state of defence in which each co
lony is maintained must have a great influence
upon the general resources of the empire du
ridg war. c=They will," he says, "be a source
of weakneakin so far as tale noceadary for the
land and sea farces t Of the - mother country to
dead theiti againacjiggresilidt, and'it source
of strength if, while they are able to repel any
ordinary Wells of, an enemy's squadron, they
will afford shelter and support to Our own
forces." He desires; also, that as the defence
of the colonies, from whattiver source main
tained, form part of the defences of the em
pire, the British Minister of War should have
on record exact ini:ormation as to the state of
defence in which' each colony is kept. Of
course, it is known', in London, what amount
of regular soldiers garrisons each colony, what
they.want to know, is the amount and efficiency
of the local troOpi, and the, condition of the
artillery, and other munitions of war entrusted
to the colonies by, the Home Government.
Thislooking after the defenbes thus exactly
is precisely. what ;Might to have been done
years ago; and would' have been done if the
Duke of Wm.irprorox's advice .had been fol
lowed. But when ho said «in time of peace
.provide for war,". he was sneered at, people
shrugged their 'shoulders and sail that, like
Miwirmenomm, he,was falling into dotage, and
that, as far as Europe went, Waterloo.had put
a quietus upon warfare for the next half cen
tury. The Duke died, but his words remain.
War did break out and' found England linable
to conquer, except With a:111 trout` France, and
tip present condition of affairs•ls anchlhat she
i 0 pledged to carryon a war with China, has
to reconquer India, and may be in, the middle
of air European war befbre the ides of March
crime round again. She does very well to in- ,
qnire into the state of her colonial defetMeg, as
her colonies aro very assailable points. In
the event of a war with this country—which
would ben vontjugency to 'be deplored—we
suspect that some of the Brittih West India
islands would change masters.
What England contributes to the military
charges of the Colonies we know not, but a
recent Parliamentary return shows that she
does not contribute one shilling to the civil
government in Australia, (New South \V.ales,
Victoria, South Australia, Tasmania, and New
Zealand,) Nova Scotia, New Brunawick, New
foundland, and,Vancouver's .Island. Each of
these dependencies supports itself, and the
vastest of all—Auitraliais so thoroughly im
bued with Democracy, that We should not be
snrprided, any slay, to hear of her having de
.elared her Independence, and becorte a -Re
public. In fulness of tithe, perhaps, BritiSh
North America may do the same, unless, in
deed, it be elevated• to a Kingdom, with
tine of the royal princes at its head. •

[For The Pres4.l
A valuable suggestion, originally made in a
communication to your paper, has been reiter
ated in a letter to Councils, from a citizen who
.pledges• himself to a donation of $l,OOO Maid
of the plan indicated. It is so well-timed, so
judicious, and feasible, that yon will do the
community no ordinary service by forwarding
it by your influence. It is to open subscrip
tion books, so that out citizens may contribute,
in amounts large or, small—the money to be
devoted to the prosecution of .public works,
say the grading and laying out of the. Park,
above Fairmount, and of the Hunting Park.
Wealthy and public-spirited men wore found
willing'to • contribute largely lo the purchase of
these grounds, and many equally public-spirited
and less wealthy citizens will cheerfully con
tribute smaller sums for their improftment ;
especially with the additional object now in
view, of, providing work for those who need it.
Such d subsCription once set on foot, and kept
before the public by the daily publication of
the amounts contributed, would soon roach a
large amount:
In no way can money be bestowed with so
great a certainty of its reaching proper subjects
of benevolence. Daily subscriptions aro now
making, to be dispensed as a mere gratuity,
iltrOugh the machinery of ward committees,
who will have difficulty in discriminating be
tween the suffer& from the times and the vol
untary and habitual mendicant. By the scheme
suggested, the real touchstone of desert—the
willingness to work—will be applied to the
able-bodied; it will be found whether any
"prefer to starve rattier than -take lower
wages:" and the benevolent societies will re
• nerve their gratuitous aid for the sick and help
less. Perhaps this mode of raising Money for

WpOIVBII.'S PIettPLIMITY.—A disturbance of
a somewhat unmet character took place yesterday
Morning, at the dwelling of Mr. Thomas Pother
gill, a fine old gentle Man of dirty-five, who has
beeo a widower for eighteen months. Mr. Pother
gill, having become tired of. his solitary condition,
advertised for a, wife, stating, wording to mis
took, the qualifications which applioante for the
situation were required to possess. The advertise—
Mont could not have boob more than an hour before
thepublie, when a brisk widow, Mrs. Rachel Mor
rison by name, might have been Beeraseending the
steps of Mr. Pother - gill's residence, in Eighth street
This lady, remembering the proverb that " the
early bird catches the worm," presented herself
for lho advertiser's inspection almost as soon as
there was daylight enough'to answer the purpose;
and, to reward her business-like alacrity, she
proved to be the Bret competitor for the prize.
Mr. Fothergill, being a man of mercantile
habits, is very prompt at making a bargain, and,
moreover, is not very hard to please., Raving ex
amined Mrs. Morrison's credentials, ho seemed to
decide that she would suit him exactly, and the
whole affair was about to be ooneluded, to the sat
isfaction of all parties, when a hard pull at the
door-bell announced another arrival. Almost im
mediately, a second lady entered the room and
glanced around apprehensively, as if afraid that
she had come too late. She was a thin, elderly
female, whose name afterwards proved to be Miss
Noama Price. "Are you the gentleman who
advertised for a wife ? " said Miss• nice, 'as
soon as she entered. Before Mr. Pothorgill
could reply, Mrs. Morrison answered for him;
"Yes, madam, he advertised; but I reckon he's
supplied." "I spoke. to the gentleman him
self, madam," answered Mies Price, sharply," and
I suppose ho knows hie own mind." "lie madea
declaration of his intentions before you came,"
said Mrs. Morrison. " I think you must have mis.
understood him, madam; persons at your time of
life are apt to bear imperfectly," answered Miss
Price. "You appear to be very anxious to change
your condition, madam," said Mrs. Morrison.
" You seem to bo much in want of a husband, too,"
said Miss Price, " I never found it difficult to got
ono," exclaimed Mrs. Morrison; "and I wish yell
to know that I have had two already." •'
cried Miss Price, "I see your husbands were much
to be .pitied, and I don't wonder that their lives
were of short duration."
While thbi altercation was going on baleen tile
ladies, Mr. Fothergill looked and listeneewith ex
treme embariassmont. Possibly he could have
been happy with either, "were the other door
'charmer away"—and he seemed totally unable to
decide whiCh deserved his 'preference. The coli
•test between Ike rival candlditcs was carried on
with increasing bitterness, until the hand of Miss
Price, while performing an energetic gesture, hap
.pened to touch the somewhat prothberant nose of
Mrs: Morrison,. What followed we would gladly
4appreas, bat, for the sake of making an accurate
report, it is necessary to say that the bonnets of
both ladies were demolished, and their faces rather
badly scratched. Mrs. MorrisOn made a charge of
assault and battery against, Miss Price. That the
scene wo have described made some impression on
the mind of Mr. Fothergill rutty be Judged from
the circumstance that when giving in his evidence
at the Mayor's office, be signified his determina
tion to remain single for at least eta months longer.

on their journey to Salt Lake City, we are able to

women and children—having in their possession
,710 head of live stook, consisting principally of
horses, tonics, and oxen, and 149 wagons, the
estimated value of which, together with goods
and money, amounts to $193,100, 'of which $23;-
000 is cash, in the hands of ithe
The train is divided into three divisions, of fifties,
commanded by Judge Loveland, Capt. Lytle and
Capt. , which divisions are subdivided into
tens, each having a captain or commander. It is
the intention to travel in separate divisions, to
;Bora guff:Mont feed for the stock, until they reach
the seat of Indian difficulties, on the Humboldt,
when they will move together en maw, to insure
protection from attacks by the hostile Indians, who
have boon so troublesome to the emigration during
the present season.
The train left camp, in Eagle Valley, about ten
o'clock on Saturday, the 25th ult., and travelled
to the Carson river, a few tulles below the mouth
of Gold Calion, whoro orders wore given by the
'leaders not to move until satisfactory settlements .

,A telegraphic despatch to the Statr Journal
gives the following important intelligence from
Carson Valley :
PLACERVILLE, October 4-4 P. M.
By special express from Carson Valley, we are
in receipt of important news. Tho murder of two
more of the citizens 'of Carson Valley by the
Washo Indians has caused the moat intense ex
citement. A public Meeting line been held, and
petitions drawn tip and signed, imploring Governor
Johnson ler aid in men, arms, and ammunition,
The Pah Utah chiefs had.pledgod their assistance
to help Angli) the Washos.
John J. Walker, from Arkansas, arOvetl. gotnizer
.2d, attlenea, reports that Messrs. Abbott apd Kir
by, members of his company, wege killnirby In
dians near Goose Crook. Two Abliotts were wound
ed, and they lost twenty Need of stook at the same
time. They visaed the Mormons' train jutt going
on the four•mile desert, getting along !Indy. A
large number of horse and mules have been miss•
ing since the exit of the Mormons. Parties have
gone in chase, on the drunk ofi the Mormons. A
trading post at Gold Canon, kept Atottinson, was
burned, with its oontants, andbut for .the timely
aid of some Pinto Ihdians, die aork whuldliave
been burnt up, beinglisleep, when the Indiana dis
covered the house intatnes, and rescaed•tdin .
The Los Angeles Star gives the following addi
tional details with' referehoe to the horrible mas
sacre of an emigrant train .on the plains by the
Indians, of which werecently gave the substance :
" The soone of tho massacre is differently desig
nated as the Santa Clara carton, the Mountain
Springs . , and the Mottptain * Meadows. But all
agree in locating it near the rim of tho Great
Basin, about fifty riffles from Cedar City, the most
southern of the Mormon settlements, and three
hundred miles from Salt Lake City. Of a party
of about ono hundred and thirty porsbns, only fif
teen infant children were saved. The amount
was given by the Indians themselves to the Mor
mons at Cedar City, to which place they brought
the children, who were purchased from them by
the people of that
2'he Star prefaces the letter of J. W. Christian,
giving an account of the massacre; with the fol
lowing remarks:
" The wrilerseems to intimate that the Mormons
will be hold responsible for the murder, and in this
respect he is fully borne out by present indica
tions' for a general belief pervades the public
mind hero, that the Indians were instigated to
this crime by the 'Destroying Angels' of the
church, and that the blow fell on these emigrants
from Arkansas, In retribution of the death of ?Ar
ley Pratt, which took plane in that State, The
truth of the matter wtH not he known until the
Government male an investigation of the affair.
This should be done. to place the bigamist tba.
right, quarter, as well as to inflict chastisement op
the numoditillis actors in the fearful tragedy, who
are reported to be the Santa Clara tribe of In

On the 18th of September, the day of the
anniversary of Chilean Independence, an amnesty
decree wan issued for oil offences connected with

The affair of the Sportsman is still pending
The French consul in Cobija. the United States
agents and a Chilean Company have presented
their claims to Government, but nothing can he
resolved until the new cabinet takes cognizance
of the affair. In these circumstances, Mr. Bigler,
the United States new r/iargt d'offa ids near this
republic, has arrived
Our advices from the south state that the Ham

hundred and thirty German families forourcolony.
ran on a sand-bank in the island of Calbuco, and
this news being known to Anoud, the national
brig-of-war Janequoe was sent to succor them ; it
is hoped she arrived in time to save the unfortu
nate passengers' lives. We anxiously await
further notice of this event.
Dates are to I.4eptember 23th. The revolutionary
movements in this Republic have assumed a more
general charaotor, and eDt. Linares has assumed
the title of Proviiienal .President, and taken the
field against the Constitutional President, General
Cordova. The cities of La Paz. Orura, Coeabamba.
and Chuquisaca had pronounced against the Go
vernment. General Cordova was marching against
the first-named City with. 1,500 veterans. La Paz
bad a garrison of only 1,500 recruits.
In La Paz, the residence of the American minis

ties who had sought, refuge under the United
States flag of Mr. Dana, Were taken therefrom.
In Cobija the Prefect nominated by Linares had
not been received. Cordova, it is' said, is badly
off for troops, having no cavalry or artillery, and
it is probable that he will be obliged to yield to a

floating debt of the company, and such an applica
