Extract of a Is.ter, d ud
Mico, 30th May, 1841.
MiMsrs. (Jiiry t Ci. ijince the date of oar gcn
ir.il udviois events of much import. rnce have tuns
pint I, h luii f note of which may not be uuinle;el
iti4 to you.
Tiie nci'.emcnt ;.m mg the Cliiueao referred to,
i c.'iitinued to iucte ise until the 1 8th inst. When
(.'rrpi. Kliiot arrivd at Canton, it soon became
k-i I'.vn thnt he had already ordered the whole Dri
ll. h force, vcMil of war, tranrports, and troops, to
the immediate vicinity of Canton ; and his advicn
to Iih couiKrymen was to rlue their hustneu and
for removal w iih af Ii t( to delay aa possible. Up to
tho iOili iusl.tho Cuin.se oulhori:lea had avoided
holding nny communication with C;i t Elliot, and
w j e n very dubious and unsatisfactory aijct.
'I'lie local authoritioK, however, publUhod p ools
insMous, ii nil s nt messages through the Hong mer
chants and linguists, assuring all re.ident foreigners
of their perfect safety in Canton.
On the evening of ihe SJOlh. ull the English resi
dents h.id emtaiked, and only four or five Anv ri
cans, confiding in tho urance of the Chinese,
remained in tiie Factories ; the same night tho Chi.
be e e iminuiici tl hostuiics by sending a fleet of fire
boats and rsfis egtinst tie vessels of war lying
near the city, but wiihout doing them any damage.
This act was avenged by the 1'ylades and steam
cr Ncmcsrs, that attacked and de troyej a battery
near the facu r.es, and abkut fjity fue lo its and as
many Crc rafts.
On the morning of the C2J, an Americint resi
dent was scrtrd by the Chinese and taken fiom his
factory ; t the same time that a boa', belonging to
ihe American ship Morrison, with three messen
ger ond seven seamen, was cap'.ured soon after
leaving the factories for Whhnpoa, and tho petty
carried prisoners into the ci'.y.
Fiom (hi-, t'.e time was occupied by English in
ronreiilratitig their forces near the city, until the
21th, at 4 P. M. The Hyacinth, 1 3, Mo les'e 1 8,
P hides 18, Nimrod 18, Columbus 16, Cruiser 10,
and Algerine 10, having tnkeii up their position in
front of the city and suburbs, opened iluir fire
upon every ofTensive point of the Chinese, who re
turned it w ith considerable spirit at first, but were
soon compelled to doiott their guns. At 6 P. At.,
a body of soldiers, about 400, were landed el (he
fjicign factories, in the vicinity of which the A
mericans, who hd been taken prisooer two daya
before, and examined by the authorities, were re.
icstd.
Tho firing was continued until about 9 P. M.
when ii';e suburbs were on firo in several places,
and nearly tii the batteries on shore in possession
of, or dcMroyed by the English.
While this was gohfj! on in front of Canton,
Cemrl Gjugh was landing h' troops, 800 men,
at the foot of the heights, i:i the rear uf the city,
arid on the morning of tho 25. h he orumenced
operations; rticu!ars uf the day's work are not
yet known further, than that, with thu loss of som.
40 killed and wounded, fjur batteries were taken
fiom the Chinese, and great nutibe'e of their ofli
cert and soldiers killed, the heights commanding
the city taken, anJ the Biitith foicci entrenched
upnn them.
The loss of the Chinise nn this occsi n is arl
oui'y estimaiej at from 3 to 6000, and even as
high as 10,000 men; and they now find to their
cost and extreme disappointment, that they are un
able to cope with European troops on shore, as they
have before proved themselves in their encounters
with British forces afloit.
On the S6'h, the vessels of wsr were engaged in
rpiicting and destroying the few ismaiiis of oppo
sition, and in the evening, mandarins called on
the Captain with fligs of truce, to negotiate for the
preservation of the city.

Judge Chasce, of Washington city,
who is himself, a strict temperance
man, in some advice, which lie gives to
the advocates of the cause through the
National Intelligencer, tays: "Men
must be uersuaded. not driven. Hos
tility must not be unnecessarily excited.
Those who do not come in must be
treated wiih kindness and left to the
w'or tings it thf;ir own conscience;
which, if not stifled bv passion, will
generally be effectual. It is that still
small voice, whispered to the soul, that
is effecting the great reform. Let it not
be drow ned in the voice of the angry
passions. It is well to be ardent in
good cause, the ardor itself may be

from Shamokin Falls, at Sunbury, to Duncan's
Island, on the Susquehanna, a distance Of about
foity miles, it was nereary to make a dam across
ihe rier al the beforeriM-nlioned pi ice. This dam
ia about three thousand feet in leng'h, und nine
feet four inches high, with a schute on the Union
county shore, for the pis-age of sik ond raftv.
There is, after allowing sufficient w iter tofeid Ihe

in taking advantage of them. The gret watei

quarter of a mile below ihe darn. Part of iho slot k
of ihis company has been subscribed, and the canal
commenced ; but the prrtiurt uf the times has pre
vented tin prosecution of the work. The length
of the canal from the liver lo the creek is about a
half a mile, and the fall obtained upwaida of eight

forebsv, afford a pnwer eofiicirnt lo drive any a

The total cotls of the construction ol ihe canal, rea

China. i
We refer our readers to enothei column for late
and highly important newe from China, 1'ho Eng
lith have bombarded Canton, destroyed lie t ween five
and tin thousand human lives, and at the latest
dales the Chinese were offering nn enormous a
mount of money lo eivo their city from lot il de
struction. There never was a more ur justifiable
end outrageous war waged by any nation, infidel or
christian, than this of Ihe Engl ah ngninat ibe Chi
nese. The furmct import into ihe country of the
latter e poisonous drug, destructive alike of mind
and body. The aulhoihiea of Chine interfere to
savo its inhabitants from the ruinous effects of the
drug, destroy all they can find, and prohibit its fu
ture importation. But the Eenglish determined not
to suffer ihe bus nf so valuable a branch of trade, j
OKsemhle a great military force and attack ono of
their chief cities. The result we suppose will be,
thut the Chinese must rat opium, as they will find
il more digestable thn British iron. Yerily these
poor Chinese are not so fur wrong when they call
the English bnrlttriana.

The city papers are talking about a resumption

will be no resumption until the state repays the
