FOR PRZSIDINT, JAMES BUCHANAN, Subject to the declnhan of a National Convention 4, DAILY MORNING PUS TUW. ►e[LLI!/ it W. H. UNITE, IDITOiII &Wb raoranrroas FRIDAY,r JUNE 1, 1843 Business, ais'yet, on our public works, has experietteed no diminution• Immense quantities of produce are stored up in our ttienstportation depots, or leave daily, ([laid freight for the east is still pouring in. The tolls on the Western Division have increased thousands and even tens of thou. Bands of dollars, (as compared with for mer years,) and the sagacious and prudent policy of the Canal Commissioners, is working wonders on the improvements of Pennsylvania.. This state of things, So gratifying to the Board, and to those who have sustained them, is constantly eliciting some new fact going to prove the rottenness of the olilsystem, and the baleful effects the unno ly alliance formed last winter with the view of wresting the state works from those who have honestly controled them, to put them virtually in the bands Of the combined cats riers, and their profligate political allies.— It is known that last winter the alliance we speak• of had almost triumphed ; and would have succeeded entirely had it not been for the Governor's veto. The fear that they would succeed, and their loud boasting that they would prostrate the sys. tern of individual competition, prevented many men from building sectio n bo4t4 who otherwise would have done so. The re— ItUlt has been that there are not enough boats to carry eastward as ra;ii.lly as its owners desired, the freight that has been offered, and freights have been raised from. 6to 8 cents per hundred poundal This increase in the price of corr . % ing is perni— cious in the last degree to both the state and the carriers. A scale of prices was adopted, and circulated all over the west, with every assurance that it would he permanent. Goods were sent hither un• der that belief,and now,as a natural conse quence of the fact that the number of boats are inadequate to the wants of the trade, prices have been raised. Had the Truck System been permitted to.,have fair play; Bad no efforts been made to discourage men in building Section Boats, there would have been plenty of boats provided to trans port any amount of goods. This, however • as we have before stated, the untrlly alli— ance prevented—and it must be set down in the long arrear of injuries and outrage• they have pet petrated against the best in terevts of Penns) lvania• We indulge the hope that the increased revettuee and extended usefulness of the public works under the new system, will aid to resolve the Gtvertior as to his action upon the bill for the sale of the main line, and that he may veto that most dangerous and ill•advised measure. The Rail Road to Connellsvi Ile- It will be seen by an ordinance publish.. ed in this paper, that a vote of the citizens will be taken on the J3th inst. as to wheth er they will sanction the tax to pay the interest on the proposed $300,000 sub scription to this work. We hope - that there may be a full turn out, on . the occasion. It is a most important movement, and evm cry man should form and express an opin. ion in relation to it. A meagre attend, ance et the polls, and the adoption or re jection of the proposed tax by leas than a majority of the whole number of voters in' the city, would afford ground for cavil by The defeated party, and create no little dis satisfaction in future. We would, there fore, press upon our fellow-citizens, to examine the question well, and to come to the polls on the 13th, prepared to give a deliberate vote upon its merits. From present appearances we incline to think that the fate of the measure de pends wholly on the•amount of private sub ,scriptions. If the $200,000 to be raised frog this source, he subscribed before the day of election, the tax will be sustained by a large majority. lf, however, the monied men of our city and county hold back,—if they decline to subscribe the re quired amount, and thereby render the completion of the work uncertain—we an• ticipate a contrary rink The money subscribed by the city would be, measu rably, thrown away, if the road cannot be finished entirely. We trust, however, -that the enterprise will not fall through from this cause, and indulge the hope that before the 13th the whole $200,000 will have been subscribed. - *bile on the subject of the Rail Road, it tit,Proper to say that the Address of the Committee appointed to correspond with the Corporations of Pittsburgh and Alle. gheny, have published an able Report-- Much velo able , lnformati on is given on ev questiee that can arise relative to the Road, *ad the fecti laid down will greatly 4ee First‘Page. The 'Canal. aid area ci Zees in the insponstist bolgtb. silt* to burn mod before they vote on the subject. The Blue Nose Ticket. There are some competent and clever men on the Blue Nose ticket, and were it not for the unfortunate position they now occupy, and the suspicious company in which they are found, they would no doubt receive a respectable vote. There, for, instance is Dr Hays, the nominee for Sheriff. He is admitted, on all hands, to be an excellent fellow—kind hearted and poplar, and capable of filling the office.-- But then he is an incorrigible Anti-ma. son—a blue nose of the straitest sect—as his nomination on the first ballot will suffi ciently show. The candidate for Prothonotary, too Mr Jaynes, is deserving of a better fate than that to which he is devoted. We like Jaynes—be is one of the few Antima sons whobad enrage and firmness enough to resist the transfer of his party to the Whigs-i t 1833 ind he manfully refused to It t his paper, the "Times," he agoon ed int • the support of Tippecanoe. His conduct on that o . c.:lsion will procure him some sympathy fro n D:mocrats, who, if they should have no candidate of their own, might lor:k with some favor upon him, However, his conduct in 1836 entitles him to a share of their commiseration; their uniform enemies they will defeat without remorse. We have no dollbt that (alt ho' Mr J. ii now a good blue nose) the opposi tion to his nomination arose from the fact that he voted for Van Buren in 1836. Visi€ers in Cincinnati. —Th e Times says: Our city has not been so fu 1 of strangers since the string timers of 1840. Most of the Hotels are crowded, and the Broad way and Henrie Houses, at least, have had to turn off many applicants within a few days. It is one striking feature in the c ise,that seven- eir.4hts of the strangers are from t he interior of the State of Ohio and the adjoining States. Not one in forty hails from a place east of Whirrs , ing. A very large proportion are Country Mer_ chants, now in the City making their sum mer purchases. A pleasant wedding party from the country and river towns ocra sionly diversifies the character of our visi tors in an agreeable manner. The Texian Sgaadron. —The New Orleans Tropic of the 20th instant, says:- 4'We learned last evening, that the British frigate Spartan, 10 guns, left Galvesto n Bevels! days ago, the commander having in his possession the late proclamation 01 President Houston. Captain Elliot, the Briiish Minister to Texas, sailed from this port on the steamer Alabama, on her last trip for Havanna, and no doubt is enter— tained that he had Houston's proclamation in his possession. These movements clearly indicate a determination on the p irt of the agents of the British Govern ment in this guar ter, to aid the President of Texas in his mad crusade against the Navy of the Republic. We shall not be in the slightest degree surf., ised to hear in the course of the next few days, that the naval power of Great Britian, under the sanction of that infamous scoundrel, Sun Houston, has driven the . Lorie Star' from . the Gulf of Mexico. Twelve Millions released from Slavery. —A writer in the Journal of Commerce says that recent intelligen ce has been te ceived in London that the British Govern ment have officially informed the British and Foreign Anti Slavery Society, that every has been entirely abolished at Mal lacca, Singapore and Penang, including twelve millions of peop'e lately in bondage Trent over the FallB.—O n la..t Priddy a man went over the cataract on the Canada side of the Niagara. lie drove a cart in— to the river opposite Navy Island, to get a load of sand, when he was borne off by the current.

The Lord Svdenharn is, of course, in a much more favorable position, and Capt. Armstrong is of opinion that he will have her in port in the course of eight or ten days. Some of the passengers on board the Queen had a most provident escape from death. One lady was f.r half an hour with the water to within a few inches of her mouth, expecting every moment to be suffocated. Another female, a servant girl in the em ploy of Henry Pemberton, Esq., of Ques bee, saved two of her master's children by placing them on her shouldars, and keep.

In a Hurry. —The two crack steam boats,t he Empire and Curtis Peck,were so busily engaged raring down the river from Albany, on Thursday last, that they could not stop at West Point and take on board a party of upwards of forty ladies and gen.. tlemen, who went up in the morning on an excursion. The Captains of these two boats should he blown op by the bursting of heir boilers. —N. Y paper. In that case they will be crack steam boats in •the true sense of the word. DI Errors erthe Presr.—A late German paper gives the "following as examples of conscientiousness on the part of a certain class of newspapers thereabouts: "We stated lately that an Englishman. named Hodges had invented a new ce ment, by which peices of iron could be joined together, so be as strong as one aol id piece. Our statement was not exactly correct; the inventor's name was Jeffrey, not Hodges, and the cement is not for iron, but joins wood so firmly that there is no necessity for nails." Another case: "We mentioned lately that the town of Messina, in Sicily, had been destroyed by an earthquake. We feel called upon to correct this account by stating, that the town is not is Sicily, but on the Danube, and it is not called Messina, but Belgrade, and that it was not destroyed by an earth. quake, but that a dreadful conflagration had occurred in it." We re.nember a story which is a match for these:--A woman being about to be come a mother, a servant was despacthed in great haste for a midwife, named Schweizer, living in Frederick street.— The servant was gone the whole day, and by the time he returned the affair was safely over. 'Well,' said his master, 'did vou find the midwife at last?"Oh! yes; but she does not live in Frederick street, but Yager street, and her name's not Schweizer, but Hausmann, and she's not a midwife either, but a police officer.' The w.ay it happened was this:—Mrs Schwei• zer had moved from her lodgings, and the neighbors had directed the servant to a' nother of the same profession, named I Hausmann, living in Yager street, and he had there stumbled upon a police officer I of the same name." Later from Yuert/art.7--There were two arrivals at New Orleans on the 19th inst., from Yuca . an, bringing dates five days la' tvr. A letter received by the Tropic states that Com. Moore 'had another skir.. mish with the Mexican steamers on the 3 I inst. But a few shots were exchanged be fore the steamers played their old game of crawling off, and there was not wind enough to follow them. From the confu sion on board one of the steamers, it was thought that one of the Texan balls did considerable 'damage. All Coin. Moore wanted was a stiff breeze. A hard fight was anticipated at Cam peachy, as Gen. Ampudia had been rein forced by 2,000 men. The Campeacha nos, however, were expecting aid from Merida, and were determined to give the Mexicans battle to the death. The men wounded on board the Whar ton, and among them midshipman Fays. sous, were all doing well. The Mexican division, whirl) had capit ulated at Texpsnal, and retired t:r Telchac for the purpo s e of embarking for Tampi- I co, had not been able t leave, having no means of conveyance. They demaiided a delay of five days. ‘vbi c h nut being grant ed, they were obliged to SO rretider them selves prisoners of war. Many attempted to escape, hut were soon I fl-lake-n.— Among the prisoners are Gees. Barrage and Lemos. erious Steamboat Collsion.—Th e Mon real papers state that on Tuesday morning last a seri.m s c dliaion took p'ace a little below Machiche, between the Queen and Lord Sydenham steamer 4, whikt petforlit ing their usual trips between Quebec and Montteal. The atmosphere was dense with fog, and the boats Here alm , st on board of one another bef ire the dancer was seen by either. The Lord Sydenham struck the Qoeen un th e hrboa, d side, with such vi :dories that she) alm.ist immediately went down in 17 feet water, her promenade deck being just left visible; and the com mander of the Sydenhain, who had turned to render assistance, finding that his vessel was also sinking, was obliged to make fur the shore and run aground, where she now lies in 12 feet water. it is known from the books of the Queen. I which have been saved, that no cabin pas ' sengers are missing. There were about 50 in :he steerage, and of these it is hoped that all will yet be accounted for. The situation of the passengers in the Queen, many of whom were below immer sed i t water, w,is frigh•ful in t he extreme; and some considet elle time elapto d be fore they were relieved by the Lumber Merchant which was on her way down, and the Lady Colborne, coming up with the mail. It was then found nocessary to break open the deck in order to get them out. 111xtracil from the Mose/ Atticlo of the Y. Herald. h eleCarlaeCticut Legislature, on the 23d inst., the bill to constitute the Danbury branch of ths Fairfield County Bank, an independent ban,k bet, fog under discussion, Mr Hubbard offered the fol lowing amendment: "And et is hereby provided, That the private and individual. property of each and all of said stockholders be held liable for the payment of any and all the notes, bills, liabilities, and demands whatsoever, of the president, directors, and corn piny of the said Danbury Bank." This was carried by a vote of 92 to 73. Efforts will yet be made to nullity this salutary provision, which is looked upon as killing the bill. West stronget argument can possibly be given against the expediency of bankinz, than for its friends to avow that individual liability will prevent them front embarking in it? If those who project and get up banks are so thoroughly convinced of their gambling nature that they will risk no more than the amount of stuck they subscribe, like the game ster who stakes his specific sum at a a faro bank, why should the people suffer them to exist? There is very little alteration in internal bills this week. The rates are as Inflows: Rates of Domestic exchanges in Neat , York, June, 1841 and May 20,1813. June,lB4l. May 23, 1843.

Too uniform currency of this coun try as regulated by the Constitution, renders ex change operations the simplest that can be. Nu passible derangement can take place until the constitutional COM is supplanted by the myriads of paper currencies furnished by a thousand is. , string banks. When that takes place, exchange, from being simply the cost of sending 1,000 silver dollars from one point to another, becomes coin. plieated with the comparative v due of paper, cred it of the batiks that issue it, and the supply which they furnish al. When the several Legislatures have cleated this confusion. they seek to remedy it by granting a monop..ly o: Lire business to some large hank. The exchanges of Europe are conducted with the greatest regularity, precision, and cheapness, in the hands of private bank,rs, altirouat the ripe rations extend over many different nations, the currencies of which arc entirely diff.rent.

Capture of Stewart, the Murderer.— We learn, that Richard Stewart, the wretch who some time ago, at Washington - county, (Ark) shot a pour wood—chopper and gave his body to be devoured by his dogs. was taken a few a days since on the Ouachita river, near the Bartholemew, by Ia party of Louisianians. He was cot cap tured without desperate resistance, and was wounded several times in the limbs and body in the course of the Liht which terminated in his capture. He had a large amount of gold, some 82,500 on his person. From his ',mien: resistance and lang,unge, it would appear that he greatly dreaded being taken to Arkansas, as he would probably be Lynched—a punishment to which he declares death infinitely pr e f era _ ble.—N 0 Bee. 8 a 8 a 8 7 a 7 a -- 1,500 00 francs 1,435 75 .?.
