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
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.

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.

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

expecting every moment to be suffocated.

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

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-
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.

Lord Sydenham steamer 4, whikt petforlit

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

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?

The exchanges have regulated tliemse:ves in a
remarkable manner, in the lace of all the predic
tions to the contrary which have emanated from
politicians. 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. ,

from being simply the cost of sending 1,000 silver
dollars from one point to another, becomes coin.

The exchanges of Europe are conducted with
the greatest regularity, precision, and cheapness,

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 _
