"Arrival from Brext's Fort.—Mr. St-
Vrain has arrived in this city from Brent's
Fort, which he left on the 21st of M ay .
At the crossing of the Arkansas, he met
CaSeively and 160 Texans, awaiting the
approach of the Santa Fe Traders, who,
left this state about the Ist of last month.
"Col. Snkely manifested no disposition
to interfere with Mr St. Vrain's Company
and expresses his determination not to mo

made common cause with the Mexican
Traders. The Texans are well armed and
prepared for a conflict. It was supposed,
that if they learned the change of the
Traders' route, they would follow them up
to the Fort, but would not atterp s t an at.
tack on the United States' side of the line.
A very large portion of the goods taken
out by the Traders this spring, probably
the largest portion belongs to the Mexican
merchants, and would be a profitable haul
to the Texans, if they could succeed in

in a destitute condition on the Arkansas.
Warfield and his party set out to attack a

in capturing their own horses and the tor- 1

The Public Works/
It is with no litttle satisfaction that we
refer our readers to the commercial column
for another notice of the tremendous in•
crease of the tolls on our public
year over those 011842. We take pride in
being among the first (if not the very first)
to break ground in favor of the Truck sys
tem, which, superadded to the economical
and prudent policy of the,Canal Board, has
produced these gratifying results. From
the hour the pernicious combination of the
opulent transporters was exposed, we have
resisted their well-concerted and deSperate
attempts to seizs the public welds into
their own hands, and now enjoy the deep
gratification of having seen the last of their
encts f‘il, and of hearing many of th tse l
who set out with them in their war against
the intere is of the State, bear testimony
to the superior policy of the Canal Board,
to whose constancy of purpose, fore
thought and sagacity, the present triumph•
act results are chiefly owing. We hope the
demonstration Aey have given that our
public works can, through the Truck sys
tern, be made profitable to the State, will
forever quell those pernicious plojectore
who would abandon that system and sell
the Main Line to a mammoth company— .
and we have an abiding conviction that the
people, with all the facts 'oef we them, will
not send a single man to the next Legisla
ture who is opposed to the present policy
on the State works, or who would think for
a moment of selling them.
Rho V. S. Loan.
The capacity of Mr Spencer, the present
head of the Treasury Department, and his
devotion to his official duties, are admitted
by his most determined enemies. An in
dubitable pi oof of his superior financial
skill, was given in negotiating the late gov.
I ernrnent loan. There is no doubt but the
jock easing prosperity of the country —the
returning "better tines" was the principal
reason why money which, a few months
since, could not be had at all, was obtain
ed with so much facility. But still, your
stock jobbers are the shrewdest of bargain.
ers; and the facts given below, prove that,
from some cause or other, they were in
duced to forego their exorbitant demands,
and loan their money at a reasonable rate
of interest. It is conceded on all hands,
we believe, that much of the credit of this
result should be awarded tt the Secretary
of the Treasury. In regard to this bust
ne-s, the N. Y. Aurora says
'Mr Spencer's recent operation for a loan
ofseven millions has induced me to prepare
a hasty sketch of its extent and bearing on
the country. It will be recollected he has
redeemed Treasury notes bearing six per
cent. interest, and issued stock in lieu
thereof at five per cent. interest. The loan
by the law runs ten years, and the follow,
ing is the result of this financial movement
in round numbers:
'57,000,000 negotiated at 8101,01 is $7,
By which we gain $70,700 of premium,
which, with the interest added fot the du
ration of the loan, gives a clear profit of
$11.6,162 33, in the matter of negotiation
'But the great advantage accruing to the
country is seen in the result of this amount
of money being borrowed at five per cent.

uAccording to the unvarying custom
of the neutral press, which refers every
movement of an editor to a pecuniary mo
tive—and seems to recognize no other rule
of action—the Age insinuates that we cen
sured the conduct of Mr Smith towards
Rooney,because we published Mr McKen•
na's cards as advertisements ! To enter
into any argument to convince the public
of the utter want of charity and truth evin
ced by the author of this charge, is use
less. It is hardly necessary to meet it with
an indignant and scornful denial.
But as we despair of making the Age
admit the injustice ofits allegation, we will
use its own arguments in showing how
weak and stale is its accusation. And we
ask the Age if, in censuring both Mr M'

of mad dogs and hogs ranging in the city

ing the existence of strong suspicions that
anjmala are mad, they are permitted to tun
at lug' or are insecurely confincd,and soon
punish the carelessness of their owners by
breaking loose and biting at every thing in
their way. Such trifling with the lives of our
people,is extremely culpable. Na hog nor
dogshould be permitted to live after a sus
picion that it is attacked with hydrophobia.
We hope that the mayor and police will not
forget their duty on this subject.

Duel Extraorrary.—Accordin g to the
Worcester (English) Chronicle, an affair of
honor took place, a short time since, near
Worcester. Two young men, a butcher
and a.tailor, quarrelled in a public house,
high words were exchanged, and a portion
of the company suggested that, after what
had passed, a duel was inevitable. The
butcher,who was in the secret, immediate
ly agreed to this proposition, and the tai.
lor was at last bantered into acquiescence.
In the absence of duelling pistols, two
guns were procured; the one given to the
butcher had merely a charge of powder
whilst that of his opponent was loaded
with —currant jam. The parties adjourn
ad to the green in front of the house; the
pieces were discharged. when the butehet
fell bespattered with jam, and was borne
off the ground an "awful spectacle." The
horrified homicide was taken into custody,
when, after having been tormented for an
hour with reports of the condition of the
"dying man" the hoax was explained
