Suchn iccieme as this, of course could not be r•ffee

see S/.ll.llousios sell the whole concern to Great
Britain, if she . isMixiorts to buy. We cannot perceive
that Texas is at all a desirable possession for the Uni

under any circumstances. The population is made up

Instead.of desiring to acquire either Texas or Cana

tribes on our borders. The increase of population and
enlargement of ten itoty produced by this means would

The public works of the State am now mere pro.

Sciency to pay the interest. amounting to about one

A t ix of one half of one mill on the dollar un this

assessment made for the purpose of levying a State
tax would bring in, but allow a reduction of 59 per

At all events it is a good way of getting a puff through

General Washington in a letter to Mr. Stone, of
Maryland, says: "I do not scruple to declare that, if I
had a vote in your Legislature, it would be given de
cidedly igninst a paper emission, upon the general
principle of its utility as a representative of coin, or
the necessity of it as a medium."
In another letter, to Thomas Washi
ton calls the paper s ystem,"lo‘dish and wicked." In
another letter he says: •'1 have never heard, and hope
I shall never hear, any serious in •noun 111 a paper
currency in the State. I d.i verily believe tint the
greatest foes we haVe in -the world could not devise a
more effectual plan f:r the ruin of Virginia."
Mr. Jefferson was, if posslute, still more hostile to
paper money than General Washington; and he avows
it in his writings, "that his hostility was strengthened
by every year's reflection and experience."
• Mr. Madison, in the 44th number of the Federalist,
ono of his acknowledged productiens , in a long article
on this subject of the currency, has this passag•e:
'•ln addition to all these persuasive considerations,
it may be observed, that the reasons which show the
necessity of denying to the States the power of re
gulating coin, prove with equal force that they ought
" l not to he at liberty to substitute a paper medium in tho

D.'. Witherspoon was a powerful mmonent to the
paper-money system, and ridiculed the idea that a bank
made money more plentiful. Ile compared all such
attempts to increase the currency "to pouring water in
to a jar of oil: - when he said, the oil would run away
and the water remain.
Luther Martin, of Maryland, says that the majority
of the convention that formed the Constitution of
the 'United States "were SO smitten with the paper
money dread. that they negatived every proposition
to porm, either the States or the Government to emit
bills of credit, by a vote of nine States to two."
Daniel Webster, the god-like, whose authority the
Whigs cannot, and the Conservatives dare not ho
peach, says: "The most effectual of all contrivances
for cheadug the laboring, classes of mankind, and for
fertilizing the rich man's fields by the sweat of the poor
man's brow, is the State -banking system."
Henry Clay "the available," who is its high authori
ty will the Whig and Conservative forces rts the "god
like" himself, said, in the year 1811, when opposing the
bank charter:
"\Vhat is a corporation, such as the bill contem
plates? It is a splendid association of favored indi
viduals from the mass of society, and vested with OX
elusive privileges, Where ha the limitation upon this
power to set up corporations? You establish one in
the heart of a State, the basis of whose capital Shall
consist of land, slaves, personal estate; and thus the
whole' property within the jorineliction of a State
might he absorbed by these political bodies. The ex

the State to tax it; and; if this pretension be well
founded, it is in the powin. of Congress, by chartering .

ken to conceal their atria:louts act, that on the family
of the deceased going early on the morning after the
day of interment to visit the grave, they discovered it
untenanted; the coffin and winding sheet thrown aside;
and marks of hair and blood on the high wall that the
body had been dragged over. The late Sergeant
Campbell was a fine old soldier who had served many
years-in the 15th Regiment, and on that corps leas.
ing Canada, be was transferred to the 85th Regiment
to complete his set vice; having thine so, he retired with
a handsome pension of one shilling and tenpence
day, and was state after appointed to the Barrack Ser
geantry of the Cavalry Barrack, Chambly. Ho was
personally respected, and has left a large family to de
plore his loss—chiefly girls. Their mtther has, for
some years, been confined an l heft less. During Tues
day, every Minn was nettle to discover the stolen re
mains, and if possible to trace the midnight mar:mars
to their haunts. Satpicion, at last. pointed to an old
desolate lookint , house, which was formerly the Seig,-
niary haute, and' which. in truth. had the general ap
pearance of a "Bucking house."
Tha officers of the garrison consequently applied to
the magistrates for a search warrant, which wan im
mediately panted. The cave door was forced open,
an I aset of dark, damp slimy dungeons were exposed
to view; lights being procured a sort of meat safe was
discovered in the corner of the vault, (which was not
more than three feet high), and in this corner were
heaped the maneled remains of the old Soldier. A
rope was round the neck of the corpse, with which it
had been dragged from the grave. Tee sight was
shacking and degrading beyond belief. It being, dark
when the remains were (113COVCred , it was decided that
they should not be re•interred before the following
day—and a couple of sentries were furnished from the
garrison to protect the mangled corpse from further in
sult. The following day being tame day, no workmen
could be found to make n fresh coffin; and it was late
in the day before a shell colBn was brought to the spot,
when the garrison, a funeral party, the music, and all
the offigers, were waiting to escort the veteran's re
mains once more to the grave. The whole of the Eng
lish inhabitant:, and also a few of the respectable
French ones, who had heard of the atrocity, were al
so in waiting to escort the remains to the grave, evince
Mg, at once, the respect in which the memory of the
deceased was held, and the horror in which they held
the authors of this diabolical sacrilege. The body
was carried by the ram-commissioned officers of the
71st Regiment. A little before dark the party reach
ed the old mil itat y burying, grilled, where a good deep
grave had been dig. This old cemetery is close to the
fort sad under the surveillance of a sentry. The
mortal remains of Sergeant Campbell were once more

MACAO, China, July 27, 1843.
1 h -re enclose the geom al regulations under which
the British trade is to Inc cteubteted at the five Chinese
ports named in the treaty, t ogether with a tariff of du
ties on articles lil . cvoort and import. This ittrii' ap

The regulations may answer well for the English.
but I cannot see how they are to suit our trade; for
cannot imagine that Congress will grant, or that our
merchants will submit tn, so mach power as is given to
the consuls in articles Nos. 3, 6 and 8. The English
consuls will be expressly a ppointed to the office. with
suiTllent salary for support, without the necessity of
nppliem ion to business, and will no doubt be debarred
loan all such rights and privileges; whereas the Amer
ican consuls will be without salary, dependent on the
fees of the other and its influence to him in trade. You
will readily see the improper, yea, ruinous influence it
will give him over all his impetitors in trade; and how
completely seftject will he all their business to his in
terest and will. Si. if we are to trade nudet the same
regulations, justice to our merchants demands the same
restrictions upon tier consuls us are upon the English.
This is a su'ijeet rerviring, the immediate attention of
our merchants at hoine interested in this trade, and
the immediate a tomtion ef caw Governmeut.
It will be seen that the consul and his government
are made directly responsible for the trade of his coun
try with the Chinese—fore melee--fur the good con
duct of ships' crews—and, in fact, for the prevention
of smeggding; by which, indiercdige fatal blow is had
at the opium trade, excluding it entirely from all the
ports at which the English are allowed to trade, anti
separating it entirely from all regular legal trade. The
dealers in it are now outlaws; their government disown
and will not protect them; their trade. or rather smeg
ling. mast be carried oa outside. The English nu
therities will leave it outside. fur the Chinese to deal
with as they may have power to see fit.
By these regulations the English me bound to con
form to the. Chinese laws, and are also responsible for
their fulfilment by all English subjects trading at the
five ports. The opium stnugglers have for a long time
looked for this tevult, and in a great measure prepared
for it, by putting theirillegul trade under the American
flag. Hence was found the ready sale for so many
fast sailing American schooners. The course was, a
bone flute sale for the vessel to some English smug
gling house, who paid the maney to the seller, when
papers would he given in the name of some ficticioua
owner, the acting consul readily end willingly certify
ing them; when away she sails, loaded with opium,
manned and armed, readylo resist to the death all who
oppose her illegal trade, and with the star-spangled
harmer waving over all these iniquities of a British
s ubject—subjecting our country to a rupture with the
Chinese jeoparding all our trade, and hazarding the
wealth and lives of out countrymen engaged in a law
ful honest trade. But, fortunately, the hopes of the
smuggler have been checked, and the star-spangled
banner refuses to father so much iniquity. Commo
dore Kearney captured one of these scflormerts, and
sent her to port, where she rendered up ber stolen pro
tection, and hoisted that flag which has been the shield
for this unlawful—yea, I may say, piratical trade.—
Commodore Kearney has put a stop to that which
meet have thrown all the opium smuggling under the
American flag. and ended in a war with China; or, at
least, n stop of t rade. It is very unfortunate that Com
modore Kearny is not still on this coast: his presence
has never been more needed. As this trade will not
be permitted under the English flag, or by English
subjects at the free ports, it is understood that the
American flog and. consulate are to be made use of for
this trade, calculating on great advantages from
being able to go where the English are shut out. And
what must be the resultl Perfectly aleir. lithe Chi
nese are disposed, they will shut out all our trade from
these five ports. Hence the great importance of hav
ing a consul here disconnected with business in any
form and natures
It is our melancholy duty to record the death of the
