ITTSBURGH, WEDNESDAY,
THE Cot ti Y CON V ENT 10S .--The
OUTSTANDING DEBTS OF THE COUNTY--We allu
ded briefly yesterday to the importance of having the
ouva,tanding debts of the county collected, and we again
call attention to it, with the hope that the people them
selves may be induced to take some decided action on
the matter, for we well know that a mere newspaper
paragraph will scarcely be sufficient to disturb the com
placency of those faithful public servants, who seem
disposed to let these accounts sleep the sleep of death.
The individual amounts due are small it is true, but
would form a very respectable aggregate, and peatly
relieve the burdens of the citizens, who arc now heav
ily taxed to pay the interest on borrowed money. They
have been, many of them, long outstanding and most
of the delinquents are abundantly able to pay, wisenev
er called upon. They should be collected if for no oth
er reason than to inculcate and preserve the principle
of integrity among public servants; for if these derelic
tions are winked at and overlooked, they will furnish
a precedent for larger and more extensive defalcations
hereafter We trust, therefore, that if a sense of do
ty is not sufficient to arouse the Commissioners to tic
' don in this matter, the potential voice of the people
, will be heard, in tones strong and loud enough to awa
ken Collectors and Commissioners to a sense of right.
WHAT THE WHIGS WANT.—The Whig party through
its orators and presses, have ever professed to be friend
ly to popular liberty, and opposed to every scheme
whereby the rights of the many should be abridged.—
Indeedthey have gone so far as to proclaim themselves
the only true friends of republican principles. Occa-
sionally, however, some one of their party possessing
more honesty, or less policy than the, rest, vrill be can
did enough to acknowledge the real end and object of
that party and the tendency of the principles it wive). ,

From the "Democratic Advocate," Warreai
The democratic Covessional Convention has pktce - u
in nomination, Dr. GALBRAITH A. Invirm, of this
county. This nomination must be highly gratifying to
the Democracy of this district.. His talents and the
purity of his principles alone make him the spontane
ous choice of the entire democratic party of the district.
He has no wealth to fo3ter him, nor any personal rela
tives to intrigue for him; but standing alone on his own
merits, he has won a popularity that we trust will se
cure his election by a triumphant majority.
SOMETHING FOR THE HATTERS. — In one of Willis's
late letters to the National Intelligencer, we find the fol
lowing description of the fall fashion for hats. To those
who wish to be in the fashion, and are now wearing
"shocking bad hats," we would advise them not to pur.
chase either for cash or on tick, until the latest New
York agony reaches our city:
"I was honored yesterday by being called in to a pri
vate view of the full fashion of hats, lying at present
perdu in tissue paper, and not to be visible to the pro
miscuous eye till the first of September. I ventured
modestly to suggest un improvement, but was told,
with the solemnity of conviction, that the hatters had
decided upon the fashion, and that the blocks were cut,
and the hats made, and there was no appeal. It is
rather a lower crown than has been worn, slightly bell,
brim a thought wider, and very much arched under
neath. The English hat that comes over now is very
small and narrow brimmed, and the Parisian is shaped
like an inverted cone truncated at the base. Of course
we have a right to a . fashion of our own; but a hat is,
more than any other article of dress, a matter of whim
sy, and any inexorable style, without reference to par
ticular physicmomy, seems to me somewhat in the line
of the bed of ° Procrustes. I recollect hearing the re
mark made abroad that Americans could always be
known by their unmitigated newness of hat. Certain it
is that the hatters in this country area richer class, and
many pegs higher in tradesman dignity, than those of
France and England. Tart mieux, of course."
The schr. St. Matthew and the U. S. steamer Gen
Taylor arrived at Savannah on the 21st, bringing news
from Florida to the 19th inst.
The troops now stationed at Pilatka were to be remo
ved to St. Augustine in the course of a week or ten
days, and the post at the former place will be abandon
ed. Sales of military articles at the different posts
had been advertised, and the retirement of the army
from the Territory was hailed by the people with much
enthusiasm; as it enabled them to "calculate on Flori
da becoming span thickly settled." The cotton crop
in the vicinity is represented as excellent and promis
ing a rich and abundant haryest. The yellow feeer,is
at Key West.
FROM ST. J AGO DI, Case.—The packet brig Emily,
Capt. Bernadou, arrived at Philadelphia on Thursday
from St. Jago. We learn from Capt. B. that that port
1 1 was as healthy as usual at this season of the year. The
' markets were completely glutted with American "pro
dace, and prices merely nominal. No freight= to be
had.
From the Herald, we extract the following:
Kay WEST —We are credibly informed that within
a short time, a British brig of war, entered the harbor
of Key West, and without communicating with the
shore proceeded to take a survey of that port. The
British Consul went onboard and was informed by the
commander that he had been ordered to survey the
harbor by order ofthe Admiral on the Halifax Station,
and that a= soon as he could make a report, there would
be a considerable force assembled there. Inquiry was
made of the Consul whether he bud heard of an insur
rection in the Island. of Cuba.
These are occurrences and are seemingly porten
tous. What the design of the British government may
be in this paraicufan remains to be seen; but her rapa
city is so well known, that we cannot doubt she has a
design epon the Island of Cubr. We hrve recently
, heard thai some regulations of the Cortez, in relation to
the Island of Cuba, favoring certain of the Pnglish fan
! atismin their peculiar views are about to be promulga
ted, and the move triads by the British Admiral may
be in contemplation of some turbulence in the Island,
of which that government knows sa well how to take
I advantage- Key West is an important position, and
should be fortified for many reasons. In the posses
sion of a hostile power !our commerce would suffer ex
ceedingly. It would be well for our government to or
: der immediately some of our naval force to that port to
counteract any encroachments upon our national rights
or domain, fur who knows what a day or hour may bring
forth.

DESCRIPTION OF FATHER MATHEW
Thatin which the attraction of the procession cen
tred, was the carriage on which ,stood erect, with un
covered head, tne great Apostle of Temperance, Fa
ther Matthew—the object of ten thousand greetings
from the vast nu tuber of spectators who thronged the
windows and every spot of vantage ground in the streets
through which the Procession moved. He was dress
ed in a plain suit of black, with a white handkerchief
adjusted round his neck in the form of a cravat. His
upper garment, enveloping nearly his whole person
was a long frock coat reaching below his knees, and
partly hiding from view his bright "exterior" black
boots. He is a man of middle stature, inclined to
corpulency, possesses an extremely mild and some
what ruddy countenance, and has a prominent nose.
His hair, which was formerly dark, is now becoming
grey, hangs in irregular locks, and constitutes the only
feature of person indicative of advanced years, his
physical energies still retaining all the elasticity and
vigor of rising manhood. His appearance, altogether,
is humble and prepossessing. His visage is intellec
tual; his forehead rather high and capacious. In all
his movements he manifests the enjoyment of the most
benevolent disposition. His manners are simple and
unassuming; and the kind and hearty reception which
he pies to all who approach him, (whether brought
i Ito his presence through curiosity or respect) is such
as strikingly manifests him to be a true philanthropist,
whose love and affection for his fellow men overstep
the narrow sphe ofilfenevolence in which moves the
mere kindred party, or sectarian benefactor. Hitherto
his least recognized excellence by Englislitnen,has been
as a public speaker, but his addresses at Leeds, York,
and other parts of England, prove that in this capacity
his merits had not been duly understood or appreciated. '
His voice is mostly shrill and feeble, and his speeches

short, pointed and harmonious—often clothed in inter

jects, and invariably appropriate and well selected.
His addresses, however, arc never distinguished by
the gaudy ornaments of rhetoric, their elegance and
force are more consistent with the language natural to
an enlarged, fervid and virtuous heart, than with a
studied nicety of arrangement, or a lofty figurative
style. Many public speakers are more eloquent,- . - - -
most more tedious; yet few are more sincere, pleasing
amid efteetive, and fewer in all things more charitable.

Tin: Cow Titax.—There is a tree in Paraguay
called the pale de root, or cow tree, which yields an
abundance of glutinous milk of an agreeable and balmy
smell, of pleasant taste, and highly nourishing proper
ties. Humboldt and his company were curious to
know whether such a tree actually existed, and satis
fied themselves by ocular demonstration. It is a
handsome tree, resembling the broad leaved star
apple. The milk flows most abundantly at the ris
ing of the sun, and the natives hasten from all quar
ters with bowls to collect it for use.
The schooner Susanna arrived at New Orleans on
the 15th inst in five days from Campeachy. The edi

some weeks since on board a small canoe, accompanied
by two of his officers. He stated that he had ben
betrayed by the remainder of his officers to the Mexi

trusted with the defence of Tobasco, had snerendered

fifty or sixty men, fought the Mexicans fur some time

TOMATO Fros.—The following is a receipt for pre
paring tomato figs:—Take six pounds of sugar to one
peck (or 16 pounds) of the fruit. Scald and remove
the skin of the fruit in the usual way. Cook them over
afire, their own juice being sufficient, without the ad
dition of water, until the sugar penetrates, and they
are clarified. They are then taken out, spread on dish
es, flattened and dried in the sun. A small quantity
of the syrup should be occasionally sprinkled over them
whilst drying, after which pack them down in boxes,
treating each layer with powdered sugar. The syrup
is afterwards concentrated and bottled for use. They
keep well from year to year, and retain surprisingly
their flavor, which is nearly that of the best quality of

BEER-DRINKING tADIES.-Mr. Weed, of the Alba
ny Evening Journal, in one of his interesting and fami
liarletters from England, writes:
"Every body drinks beer in England. I have aston
ished waiters, in two or three instances, by asking for
water. When you seat yourself at table in a "Coffee
Room" or "Steak-House," for dinner, and have order
ed your "joint," or "steak," or "chop," the waiter in
quires, "Hale, porter, or stout, sir?" If in place of ei
ther of these national beverages, you reply "water,"
he either laughs in your face, or turns away, wondering
where such a wild chap could have been caught. Now,
that I have seen something of English habits, l am as
tonished that Miss Martineau should have deemed the
circumstance that two or three American women, with
Whom she met, were "not all for love, but a little for
the bottle," worthy of remark. The drinking of hale,
porter and stout, is universal here with the females of
the poorer classes, when they can get it; and with those
of the better classes of mechanics, females, people,
a*l shop-keepers. While at dinner at Birmingham, it
wks observed by all of us, that the ladies (a dozen) at
table drank porter as if they were thirsty, and as if it
did them good. The lady opposite to me, who was
well dressed and well educated, disposed of nearly an
entire bottle. You meet ladies at every turn of the
streets in London, "the rubie of whose faces shows the
shrine at which they kneel.' I have met ladies at ex
hibition rooms, whose fiery faces entitled them to the
distinction of being classed with Shakspeare's "knights
of the burning lamp." And you find every side-walk
I
blocked up with lusty ladies, who are indebted for their
rubicund faces and rotund persons to habitual beer
drinking. I yesterday sat in an omnibus with an old
lady and gentleman, evidently of the wealthy class,the
latter of whom was a victim to gout, while the former
displayed a face and nose, the maintenance of which
bad cost as much as Falstaff paid fur "sack" to keep

Messrs. Editors: We presume it will be in point,
on the eve of the meeting of the Democratic Convention, i
to malie a few remarks with references to the candi
dates for Congress. Without any desire to disparage
the merits of the candidates older in experience than
Dr. E. D. Gazzam, we would ask the Democracy of
Allelieny county, if in them centre as much as in the
latter gentleman the most essential requisites for that
high post. If ever man was brought forward as the
exponent of principles that should ever be recognized
by a free people, that man is E. D. G327.A.M, and f , ,r
why! Because he is not of those politicians to wit , ;:w
growth. power and place, and a connection with pow
erful cliques are ever indispensably necessary to suc
cess. A few years ago and he was comparatively un
known, and it is from having passed through the ordeal
of trial unscathed that the people of this county regard
hint with so much respect; they have tried him and he
has not been found wanting; inexperience cannot with
justice be urged against him by a people who cannot re
cognize perpetuity in office without violating one of the
cardinal principles of Democracy. Experience being
the qualification, every democrat at a glance must be
enabled to see that perpetuity in office is the result. Is
he honest? is he capable? These and these alone are
the necessary requisites, that E. D. Gazzam is rich in
port of pittsburgl).
