to be in a great - rage with the contending factions
of Locofocoismin this county. In his last paper,
after administering a thoroughhcastigation to both
Morivons and Befinetites, he thus speaks in re:
dation to the probability of each of the fragments
'of the party sending confer:ace to the Congres.
"Should this be the case, as it is thought it
•will, it will devolve on the conferees from Perry
and Franklin to be the judges to decide the gees

• them both out, and send them home to settle there
• disputes there, and prodded to make the'nomina.

How this dose will lie on the stomaphs of those
champions who covered themselves with glory at
Cart's Orchard and Wunderlicl✓s Grcrie, we are
unable to opine: ' But, if we mistake not, Captain
Sanderson and Lieutenant Hamilton will cast

"The Volunteer side still retains the ancient.

and hang their hopes of being recognized by the
democrats of Perryand Franklin upon their name.
A good name is a very good thing, but unless
they can produce actions with the name, we can
' hot see he* they can expect it alone to avail them
'much in being received into favor with.the 'De.

, After salting the editor of the Volunteer and
las friends,—whom he stigniatizea as the ad-
Iterente of "that arch traitors David R. Porter"-1%
the writer turns round and under the term of l
radiation, pays hie respects to the Anti-Tax men
in a very eloquent and exquisite manner.
On the other hand, the Statesman, as we before
*aid, is the organ of the "Anti-Tax" divislont—
We know not whit it was that caused this split,
or how it came 'to pass, or what were the motives
of those who seceded from the ancient name of
Democrats, and now style themselves 'Anti-Tax
democrats.' Aro they governed by motives of'
.'principle, ambition, or a restless spirit that would
rather " rule in Hell than serve in Heaven" ?

appears to indicate, that they are opposed to Tax

following iamarks relative to a Protective Tariff:
A protective Tariff,. which at ono time was u
niversally received by large majorities in the
Eastern and Middle States, is now 'wink.

and is , viewed as pernicious in its consequences,
and an a source of wealth' and ,prosperity to the
few, at the expense of poierty and oppression to
It requires not the spirit of prophecy to tell
how such radical and suicidal doctrine will suit
the protective Tariff democrats of our county;
and we would kindly inform the editor of the
Times—who, we understand,- is the factotum of
Mr. McClanahan, that such ultraism is entirely
too strong for the manufacturing and farming in

this result might ossify enough have been avert

The writer properly deems the future prospect
highly important, in considering our 'relations
with other -nations, and in determinit our na
tional policy, and this it was which induced ,him
to enter upon a "strict examination of the natural
capabilities of our country." The investigation,
has evidently been made with much care, and we
feel no hesitation in presenting to our readers, in
a condensed shape, some of his deductions.
The surface of the United States comprehends
a apace of about' two million two hundred and
fifty thousand square miles, and is about one.
twentieth partof the land surface of tha Birth.
More than one-half ot this surface lies between
the 35th and 45th degrees of latitude, in the very
heathafthe_TsinperttteZone where nature brie
men and fruits to the very highest measure, of
comparative excellence. Of the whole two mil.
lion two hundred and fifty thousand. square miles
of surface, only about two hundred.and fifty thou.
sand lie in the Atlantic alone, and two.thirde of
the whole lie in the Valley of the Mississippi.
To estimate rightly the population, which, under
the natural laws of increase, will arise and he
readily maintained on this surface, it is proper to
consider the arability and fertility of the great
American basin, ae the Valley of the Mirisissippi
has been styled. In this vast region there 'every
little space occupied by mountain marshes, or
lakes, incapable of production. Almost the Whole . ,
surface is arable. * lts rivers aro remarkably long.
The main stream of the Mississippi rises near
latitude 48 degrees, and joins the Gulf of Mexico
about 29 degrees,—thus running through about
20 degrees of latitude. The Rid River of
Lana is ono thousand miles' in length: the Ohio,
ascending to the beads of the Monongahela and
Allegheny, is also one thousand miles long: The
rains and melted snows, which occasion the an
nual floods, full on distant mountains, and raise
these streams to great height pouring fourth vol.
times of water, which irrigate and fertilize their
banks. These great faCts, taken in connection
with'its locality in the Midst of the Temperate
Zone, determine the conclusion that the, great
Basin is capable of producing more grain, and
consequently maintaining more people, than any
other equal space on the face of the globe. It is
gratifying to. know, too, that eo far as cultivation
has extended, the practical result corresponds
with the theory deduced from geographical facts.
The circumference or border line of the United
States is about nine thousand five hundred miles
in length. It may be divided thus': Boundary
in common with British North America, 3,700
miles; boundary in common With Mexico, 2,300;
coast of the Pacific / 700; coast of the Gulf of
Mexico, 1000; and coast of the Atlantic, 1,800
miles. The territory thus en'tlosed includes also
nearly ten thousand miles of River and Lake na
vigation, of whlch two thirds are in the Valley
of the Mississippi. Geographers of foreign coun.
tries have admitted that this extensive country
has the most varied soil, climate and productions
of any country on the face of the earth. The in
evitable consequences of this is; that its capabi
lities for population and wealth are correspond.
A number Of estimates of the progress of Ame.
rican population have been made. Tho writer is
of the opinion that two of these—the one by
Darby, the other by Professor Tucker, are par.
titularly worthy of notice. Comparing the esti
mates of these gentlemen, and taking the mean,
it may be considered certain, continues the wri.
ter, that, without Divine interposition to the con.
trary, ono century will increase the population of
the United States to three hundred millions. We
must confess, that to our mind, the mean estimate
here given appears to be far too great.
Estimates have been made which render it cer
tain that the United States" have an ultimate ea.
pacity of containing eight. huhdred millions of
people, which la more than , the entire population
of he globe. .

The Trouble In Illinois.
We recently alluded to a rebellion in Coles co.,
Illinois, in which a number of persons avowed a
determination to resist the decision of the Su.
promo Court. A friend informs the Cincinnati
Gazette, that the statement is true, and that the
men talk of resorting to violence to carry out their
purpose. They act openly in the matter; talk
strongly ; at least, so lar as regards, the prelimi•
nary steps, the 'mouthing part.' The Gazette re.
"It is the first instance we have had, of what
may be termed, the incipient steps of rebellion in
these North Western States. Mobs. outbreaks,
lawlessness, in various forms, when the passions
of men have been roused, have disturbed us fur a
season: They have, however, been put down, and
the spirit which gave them birth quelled. But
nowhere before, so far as we are informed, have
hundreds of citizens, banded together, and pledg.
ed their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred hon.
or, as these men have done, to annihilate the set
tled law of the land. This honor is theirs.—
Whatever of glory Is attached to this stop, be.
longs to them, Now as this is a matter which
concerns the whole country, we think the names
of these parties should be published in full. They
should be known, and well knoWn. Cannot our
brothers of the Republican, or Era, at St. Louis,
get hold of the articles of. he association, the res.
cautions passed, with the signers to them, in
Coles county, and spread the whole proceedings
betore the country? We trust they will do it."
