.1 see its your paper, a few mornings since, in en rtr
cis OR ems Mayoralty, you give your decided prefer

and your reasons are, that they have always made
the moat impartialand able city mo;istrates. I ask,
who dore mean? Have .you re
mean? to the able,
tiosporMil and dignified administration of the pre

a - PROTESTANT DEMOCRAT.
We have no hesitation in satisfying the doubts of a
6 'Protestant Democrat." In our article on the Mayor
alty,we referred to the administration of Dr J R M'
CusTOClit. Mr M'Ciintock was elected as a "Citi
zens' Candidate," and mon of all parties can bear
witness to the impartial manser in which he discharg
ed thecluties!cf the office, and the pro:Tel-nos condition
of the affairs of thissity while they were under his con
The present mayor, Vlll3ll first elected, was a party
candidate, and his political friends expected that ho
would be a party Mayor. We believe he has not ex
actly answared their proscriptive views, but whether
he is fully convinced of the evil consequences of having
the ofce•filled by a violent pasty man who is mere
anxious to please political partizans than the citizens
at . large, we have nut been informed. We would not
care much to what party the candidate belonged. so
thst he was liberal, honest and capably, and would not
let party canaiderations control him in the discharge of
the duties of hisoffice. If the present Mayor possess
ea these qualities, "Protestant Democrat" may apply
our remarks to hint, if he chooses.

SOUTH CARCILINA.—Governor Hammond, in his
annual message to the Legislature, sets down the ac
tual debt of the State at $3,495,164,34, to be re
deemed from 1845 to 1862. Besides this, the State
owes two millions for a guaranty to the Cincinnati and
Charleston Railroad Company. The governor, ad
dressing the Legislature, says, an expression of your
opinion en the annexation of Texas to the Union
might not be improper.
SP ZCIE.—Thc amount of specie in the Boston
Bank 3 exceeds their note! in Pirculation one half.—
The principal dopn3ite3 or specie are in the l'sl3r

DESCRIPTION OF THE. NEW MF.XICAN COUNTF.R
FEIT Colx.—The Mexican papers notice the emission
of counterfeitdallms, and state that the government is
institutinz a rigid inquiry into the matter. In the spu
tious coin the word licpublican is badly executed, the
«pace between the two first qylables being very great,
arid tho leaves of rtopal which appear to spread from
the earth on the reverse of the coin, are larger in the
counterfeit than in . the genuine specimens.

Cl. acres of timber land, situated immediately on
the Ohio river, in the State of Indiana, between Cincin
nati and Louisville, a suitable location w establish a
very profitable WOOD YARD—a great majority of
the timber being beech and poplar. It is a well known
Net that cordwood of this kind is always bought in pre
ference to any other by steam boats. There is no point
on the Ohio river where good wood will bring a better
price. In addition to this, there is no part of the west
ern rivers navigated by so many steamers—and hence
the great demand for good cordwood. It is obvious
that this land is more valuable on account of the tim
ber, as the clearing of less than onehalf will more than
pa" the original cost of the land. The poplar logs can
be very advantageously rafted to Louisville, where
they have always brought a good price, and are much
used fur building purposes. The soil is remarkably
rich—and when cleared of its valuable timber, will suit
in every respect for all kinds of farming purposes. The
produce of the farm, by water, is within a half of a
day's reach of two of the finest markets in the western
country, namely, Cincinnati and Louisville.
