the'Louisville Journal, that the estimated yield is
over SO per cent., and the , estimated cost of the

Editosul Hokhtt.—ln our paper cl 'Wed
nesday, in speakiogof Senatorial confirmation of
the President's nominations, we remarked:
“If they [Democratic Senators] show any good
reasons why any of General Taylor’s nomina
tions ought not to be ratified, foundedon tuition*
tial ftrumol orpuUie grounds, apart from colitis
cal considerations, then they will be justified in
withholding their assent, bat an opposition mere
ly reckless and ungenerous to a co-crdioila
branch of the Government, is unworthy of any
man holding the distinguished place of Senator.”
The “Morning Mercury,* of yesterday, under
takes to criticise our remarks, and paraphrases
them as follows:
So here is the morality of the Gasette—sustain
the administratlou appoiotmeats; tit f uahjiea*
twu of lit ftttont appointtd, art </ no amto*
fuenet; tne duties we owe to our party, are alto
gether superior to those which we owe to our
country.” It is a happy thing for the etfuntry that
the Gazette's morality is peculiarly Its own—were
it otherwise, In vain might Henry Clay denounce
in burning words, the blindness, the bigotry, and
the intolerance of party spirits.
The quotation marks are the Mercury's, by
which language is put into our mouths which we
not only nevar nsod, but which is diametrically
opposite to that we employed, as is seen by the
above extracts. The dishonesty of such conduct
is too palpable to require any further remark.
The great demand for Mr. Clay's speech may
be [inferred from the following, which we copy
gota the Washington Globe:—
“We have already as many orders for this
as we can Alt in two weeks; -and therefore
’we —"*<•>» receive any more subscriptions for it,
unless the snbeeribers will sgree to wail more
than two weeks. It will require about one hun

is doing wondersjsnd now, since we have got an
Agrttaltoral Society eatablisbed, and we hope in
active operator, the country is looking tow to
lend tbe wsy in many sneb movements, as the
above hinted at. If inch fairs were established,
the advantages that wonld spring oat of them c*n>
tot be properly estimated,we wonld have stock of
all kinds comlsg in from many parts of tbe coon
try, and men wonld have something to stimulate
them to prepare for aneb exhibitions. If a person
baa got a horse u> aell, at present, where does be
go to exhibit him, “ To tbe horse market ?” This
is a place I have visited, and so far as I ean speak,
1 have never seen a good bone sold in it: in gen
eral, they are lame, Hind, trrpaxtntd! Thnra is a
general idea entertained by plain country
people, when we apeak of a cauie ahow, that
no man takes a beast there, unless he is a compet
itor, although he may have a tifey good and vain
able animal, yet because be does not think he will
stand the test of examination, although he is wish
fo] to part with him, he is prevented from coming
forward and effecting a sale. Now, in establishing
thelairt I alhide to, it wooldbethevery thingwe'
require, and at the same lime,, let it be distinctly
understood, that ■ fairfer abaft still be
kept op. I should like very much to see the above
established. lam almost sure li would tom out
well. Should the above ideas be worth inserting,

espendeaee o* the Pituburzh gazette.
Haaazssuxsß, Feb. 11, 1850.
In the House, to day, a yesolution vu passed
instructing the Committee oa Banka, to Inquire
whether *any of the Beaks in the Stale have ex*
tended branches of issue and discount to any
other county than that in which they arc located,
in violation of their charters. Nothing else of in*
terest waa done in this body.
In the Senate, the only milter of interest was a
report from Ur. Daraio, Grom the Committee ap
pointed oa the subject, in reference to the Wheel*
isg Bridge, and the obstruction that it
to the navigation oflha Ohio river. The report is
very able;and commanded the.serious attention
of the Senate throughout its entire reading. As
it will no doubt bo looked for with great interest
by the people of your city, I will endeavor to
procure a copy tor yonr paper to morrow.
The argument of this report ia perfectly conclu*
site oflhe right of Pennsylvania to the tree and
unobstructed navigation of the Ohio from its
source to i*s mouth; and many of the ablest legal
authorities of the country are cited, sustaining this
The report was accompanied by the resolutions
below, which were taken up and promptly passed,
unanimously, thtoogh all their several readings:
Whereas, The navigation of the Ohio river haa
been and 1a now obstructed by bridges erected a*
cross its channel between Zane's Island and the
main Virginia and Ohio shores, so that steam
boats and other water craft, hitherto accustomed
to navigate said river, are hindered in their pas
sage to sad Grom the port of Pittsburgh and other
ports la the Staloof Pennsylvania, and the trade,
commerce, and business, of citisess of this Oom
moaweallh interrupted, the revenue of her pub*
Uo works diminished and Impaired, and steam
boats owned and navigated by citizens of this
Btite bound to and from her ports, are subjected
to labor, expense, and delay, with hazard to life
and property, by reason whereof the said bridges
are a common and poNic nuisance, injurious to
the State of Pennsylvania and her citizens.
Therefore, be Unsolved, &c.
1. That the free and uninterrupted navigationof
the Ohio river, as a common highway, as a right
belonging to the citizens of Pennsylvania, which
being essential to the prosperity of tie State ia
the duty of the Commonwealth to arrest and dc*
2. That the proceedings in behalf of said Bute,
instituted by her Attorney General, in the 8u»
preme Court of the Uoited States, and now pen
ding therein, against the Wheeling and Belmont
Bridge Comptny, to abate the nuisance occasion*
ed by their bridge, lately erected across said riv
er, be prosecuted to final judgment, decree and
abatement of said noisanoe.
3. That U such proceedings shall fail to abate
said nuisance, the Governor of this state is au
thorized and directed to cause such other-- and
farther proceedings to be taken as may be neces
rarv ana proper to procure the abatement thereof
by due course oflaw.
4. That the sum oftwo thousand dollars be and
the same ia hereby appropriated toward carrying
on said proceedings, the said sum, or so much
thereof be necessary, to be expended under
the direction of the Governor, and the account
thereof to be settled in the usual manner.
California—San wonder
of thi og«l
A late letter of Bayard Taylor, received by the
lest steamer, end published in the New York Tribe
one, fives the following description ofthe wonders
'exhibited by Ban Emnciaoo:
“Of all the marvelous phases of the history of
he present, the frowtb of San Francisco is the one
which will most tax the belief of the Fntnre. its
parallel was never known, and shall never be
mheld again. I speak only what I have seen
with my own eyes. When 1 landed here, not
qrnte font Booths ago, I found a scattering town
of tents and canvas houses, with a show of frame
buildings on one or two streets, and a population
ofabout aix thousand. Now,l see around me an
actual metropolis, displaying street after street of
well built edifices, filled with an active and enter
prising people end exhibiting overv mark of per*
manent commercial prosperity. Then, the town
was United to the carve of the bey fronting the
anchorage and the bottoms of the bills. Now, it
stretehea to the topmost heights, follows the ahore
mronnd point after point, and eendiag back a long
arm through a gap in the hOls, takes hold of the
Golden Gate and builds its warehonaea on the open
strsit and almost fronting the blue horiion of the
Pacific. Then, the gold ecekiog sojourner lodged -
in mnslin rooms and canvas garrets, with a philo
sophic lack of furniture, and ate his simple tboogb
PjCt, mUI fire from pise boards. Now, lofty ho
tels, with gaudy varendahe and balconies, are met
with in all quarters, furnished with home loxory,
and aristocratic restaurants, present daily their
long bills of fare, rich with the choicest technicali
ties ofthe Parisian cuisine. Then, vessels were
coming in day after day, to lie deserted and use-.
* less at their anchorage. Now, scarce ad ty pa«e*,
butaome cl osier of sails, bound outward through
the Go’den Gale, take ibeir way to all the corners
of the Pacific. like the magic seed ofthe Indian
1 iogtl* r « which grew, bloesomed, and bore fruit be*
, fore the eyes of his spectators, Ban Francisco
teere* to have acompliahed la a day the growth
of halfa century.
When I first landed here, bewildered and twa
xed by what seemed an unnatural standard of
pricer, I expressed the opinion that there would
be before topg • great crash In speculation.—
Thing*, it a peered than, had reached Ibctr crisis,
end it was pronounced impossible that they could -
remain stationary. This might have been a very
natural idea at the time, but Use subsequent courts
of sffeirs iu shown it to be incorrect. Land,
rents, goods subsistence, haro continued .
steadtlv to advance tu cost, and as the credit sys
tem has been meanwhile prudently contracted,
the character ofthe basinets now done Is (be more
real god substantial. Two or three years will
pass, in all probability, before there is a positive
abatement of the standard of prices. Thpre will
bs flactustions la the meantime, oceosjonigg great
gates and losses, but the foil in reals sad real es
tate, when it comes, as it inevitably msg in the
coarse of two or three yen*, will Dot be to crash*
tng as tsi first imagined. I doubt whether it wtH
aerioualv injure the pommereial activity of the
Prioea will a tret fall to the same stand
ard as in the Atlantic Statu. Fortunes will al
ways be made here by the sober, intelligent, in
daslrieps,and energetic; but no one who la either
too careless, too spiritless or too Ignorant to suc
ceeds! home, need trouble hlmse'f about emigts*
ting. The same general rule holds good, as well
as elsewhere, sod if la all the better for human
nature that it does.
Not only is the heaviest part of lha bosiness
here conducted on cosh principles, bot all rents,
even to-lodgings in hotels, am paid in advance.
A single bowliof alley, In the basement story of
the word Houre—a new Hotel on Portsmouth
square—prepays 15,000 monthly. The firm of
Findley, Johnson fa Co., recently sold their rest
estate, purchased a year ego for $20,000 at $300,-
000; $23,000 down, and the rest In monthly in*
stalmentg of $18,500. The pjrcbaser, Mr. Stein
berger, has since been offered $12,500 monthly,
in advance, for the rant atone, which would thus
pay at once,-tbe first cost of the property. This
U a fair specimen cl the speculations daily made
here. Those on a leaser scale are frequently of a
very amusing character, but the claims on one’s
astonishment are so eon tost, that the faculty soon
wears out, and the most onboard of operations
are looked upon as matters of ooarst. Tbe great
est gems are still madeby tbe gambling tables and
tbe eating bouses. Every device that art can sug
gest is used to swell Iho custom of the former.
The tori— find abundant support In the necessi
ties of a large dotting population, in addition to
the swarm of permanent residents. Rowe's Circus,
which is still here, does an Immense business, and
a large and handsome theatre is about to be erect
ed oa the upper aide of Portsmouth square. If
conducted wtiJt becoming order and decency tho
latter establishment will have a decidedly moral
effect, by diminishing tbe influence of a much
greater evil.
Tbe great want of Baa Francisco is society.
Think of a city of So£oo inhabitants, peopled by
men atone! The like of this was never eeen be
fore. Every man is his own housekeeper, doing,
in many instances, bis own sweeping, cooking,
washing, and mending. A company of
are at the Fresh doing a
driving business in the laundry line. Many borne
arts, learned rather by obaervation this experi
ence, here oome conveniently into play. He who
eksnot make a bed, cook a beefsteak, or sow up
bis own rips and rents, is unfit to be a cltlxen of
Californio. Nevertheless, since the town has be*
gun to assume a permanent shape, very man; of
the comforts of life in the esst are attaioable. A
fondly may now live here without suffering any
material privations; and if every married man,
who Intends spending some time in California,
would bring his family with him, a social inlloeoce
would soon bo created to which we might look for
the happiest remits.
Souths** Divorton to thx Union.—Tbe Norib
Slate Whig, pubUbed at Washington, N. 0., says
that “ while here and there a Southern paper can
be found thirsting for disunion, the great body of

The North Carolinian tells the following anec
dote of an old former, of that region. Who had
tried the planks roads:
He was at first much opposed to the plank road,
and thought it wonld be a waste of money to build
it. Bat be came to Fayetteville With his wsgon
and produce,- end drove on it some miles. Wben
he got back to Chatham; oar merchant friend asked
him if be had seen tbe plank road? “Yes,” he said,
“he bad seen it,” "Well, did you drive on it?”
“Yes.” ••Weil, don’t yoo think you cany four
time* as much weight on it with a four bone team,
is on a common road?” “Oh yes,” says be, “it’s
Ant rate; and ft’i a fact that when the wagon tot
to the end ofthe planks tod struck the heavy dirt
road, every horse stepped and looked around.”
«I wish yon had Eve,” said an urchin to
an old maid who bad been proverbial for her mean
ness. “Why sof” “Because,” asid he, “yon
wonld have eaten all the apple, tntteed of divi

tier ms broag bi iota Court in custody of officers
Wm. Esterbrook end David .Patterson.’ At the
epenißg oftbe court, the Attorney General, Hon.
John- H. Clifford, tddressed the court as fol*
"May it please your Honor—ibe Grand Jary at
this county, presented an indictment at Uie list
term of the Municipal Court, against John W.
Webster, the prisoner at the bar, for the crime of
murder, and by a provision oftbe revised statues,
that indictment bos been certified op to this court.
1 now move your Honor, that the prisoner may
be arraigned upon that indictment.”
Tbe Clerk then called upon (ibe prisoner to
up, and bold up bis right bond, and hearken
to tbe indictment Tbe prisoner, daring tbe read
ing cf tbe first part of the indictment, manifested
considerable emotion, evidently making an effort
to stand perfectly firm. In reading the first count
ot tbe indictment, where it describes tbe manner
of inflicting tbe mortal wounds, just as the clerk
pronounced tbe wards “with s certain knife,
which be then and there in' bis right hand had
and held,” dec., the prisoner let bis right bind fall,
and rest upon the railing in from of him, where it
remained nntil the reading was finished.
At tbe close oftbe reading of the indictment,
tbe Clerk asked “John W. Webster, what tty yen
to Ibis Indictment—are you guilty or notguillvt”
To’which the prisoner replied in a clear and els
tiakvoice, “I sm not guilty, slit” Tbe Court
theirinquired of the prisoner had any conn'
sel engaged to assist him in bis defence, to which
the prisoner responded, “I have, your honor—Mr.
Sobier and Judge Merrick.”
The Court then inquired cf Mr. Sobier. and of
the Attorney General, if they had any particular
wish as to the time for tbe trial. Both tbe eoun*
sel stated that it would be desirable to have the
time of trial fixed for ts early i day as possible,
and that they would be ready at such timo as tbe
ooart might direct.
Judge Fletcher then stated that he was directed
by the court, if no objection was made by the do*
tendon t, to assign Tuesday, tbe nineteenth day of
March next, aa the day for tbe trial of this case.
To this the counsel for the defendant replied that
they wonld be ready at that lime The prisoner
was then remanded- 80 that day was assigned
forthe commencement of the trial of this import*
ant esse. The general appearance oftbe prison
er was mueh the ssmo as before his arrest. Hoe-
ing the arraignment the Grand Jury, many mem*
ben cf the bar, friends of the prisoner, and sever*
si physicians and gentlemen of other professions,
were present. —BoAon Journal.

Peach trees are the better for a great deal of shor

trees in May or June. They need little or no pru

young. Cloverwed-should be sown as early in
the spring as possible, whealber town with small
grain or alone. Iris frequently sown upon wheat
during the scows of February, without passing a
roller or drgg over it. When sowed with oats,
miter the ground in which the oats ere sowed is
thoroughly harrowed, sow the clover seed and
pass a drag board or a bushy tree top over it. A
drag board is a platform of boards, to which tbe
bones are attached, the driver standing en the
