Among the many changes which are daily pre.
senting themselves to the eye of the reader, we this
morning call their attention to another which may
be found at the head of the terms of the " Coluntbia
Spy." It will there be perceived, the mime of W.
11. Spangler has been added to that of Charrick
Westbrook (former editor and proprietor) by whom,
as a firm, tho "Spy" will continuo to be published.
This change, as is presumed, has been made, like
all other changes, with the hope that all parties
tnay be benefited. The proprietors have deter
mined to leave nothing undone to render the Spy"
not only an agreeable companion for the fireside
or family circle, but also to afford to the business
community, a medium, through which, all their
Interests, at their own discretion, can be laid before
The columns of the. Spy" will at all times be
open to communications, whose contents shall have
a tendency to the enlightenment of the mind, or the
improvement of the morals or literary taste of its
reader. Indeed we would solicit from those who
sometimes "leave the busy haunts of men," to
stray awhile in lands where "flowers of poesy
grow," their musings. To the man of science,
whose labors are for the public good, and from
whom enlightenment comes—to those whose genius
guides and whose efforts ure directed to the perfec
tion of the arts—to the roan of letters whose talent
would servo to while away the pleasant hours—to
one and all we would say, lend us your aid and as.
silt us in our endeavors to make the :Spy" a
journal sought after and subscribed for by the old
and young, the grave and gay, and the wise and
good of all classes.
The "Spy," as heretofore, shall continue to be
strictly neutral on the subject of politics and
religion, and we think this principle strongly ad
hered to, should recommend the paper to all parties
We learn that Columbia alone contains upwards
of three thousand inhabitants. The office of the
Spy" is located in its midst, and gives to its citi.
zens, weekly, all matters, local or foreign, affecting
in any manner their interests. The subscriptiun
list (considering these advantages)is comparatively
small for the number of the inhabitants, and as the
terms are so moderate, wo confidently trust, that,
with the commencement of the new year, we shall
be able to add s at least one hundred more subscribers
in Columbia. alone, to our list.
We are now about receiving a large quantity of
new type, of small size, for advertisements, which
will give additional room for select, or original mat
ter, which shall receive careful attention at the
hands of the proprietors to make it interesting.—
We arc thoroughly prepared with a splendid assort.
ment of job material to execute all kinds of bills,
labels, cattle, addresses, &c., in a style equal in
cheapness and beauty, to any furnished from the
city. With all these advantages and our united
determination to make the "Spy" useful and en.
tertaining, we cannot but again express the hope,
that from all points, new names by the dozen may

' and wo hope the matter presented instead, to the
remainder of our patrons may prove satisfactory.
' As to the message itself we have but little to say
in the way of continent. Wo gave it an attentive
perusal, and we came to the conclusion it was an
easy, well written, able document, though much of
its contents were almost identically anticipated.—
Every body expected the unpleasant war with Mex
ico, would be the burthen of the paper, and in this
they were not disappointed. We did think the
President would have endeavored to prove the exis
tence of the war by the act of Mexico, from evi•
deuce other than the niece assertion of Congress ;
then, his path would have been clear, and his
mina. ks on the subject, appropriate, patriotic, and
I worthy the position from whence they emanated.
Re clearly sets forth the object of the war, in the
accessiun of territory, as the only means within
the power of Mexico to pay uur citizens for past
indebtedness, or the present expenses of the war
On this subject the message is replete with states
manlike views, and dues credit to the author. Ile
shows the tariffof '46 to have fully realized the ex
pectations of its warmest friends, and the revenue
derived from its operation, to exceed by more than
eight millions the proceeding year, under the tariff
of '42—and recommends that with a small war
duty on tea and coffee, it should remain the settled
policy of the country. Ile also recommends the grad
uation and reduction of the prim of public lands as
a means of bringing a large quantity of unsaleable
land into market,thereby, with the duty on tea and
coffee, lessening the amount of the loan required
anually, so long as the war exists, four millions of
dollars. These are the leading topics of the mes
sage, which is concluded with a quotation from the
Farewell address of Washington, in which is an.
ticieated the danger to the Union, in characterizing
parties by geographical distinctions, and strongly
urges that the Union may be preserved by adhering
to the advice of the first President.
Rotuma CAGCO.-A man named S. IL Turner.
who has been "boarding round," ut most of the
public houses in this place, for some months past,
was arrested on Sunday last, at Lancaster, on sus
picion of having robbed the Fulton !louse on the
night previous. The circumstances of the robbery
I were these :—The boarders at the house, retired
about midnight, leaving the back door unlocked,
through which the robber entered, and ea , ricd off
all the clothing, boots, shoes, &c., that were left in
the bar, together with a large lot of bed clothing,
children's clothing, a purse which the children
stored their Christmas money in, and sundry other
articles. Mr. Boyle, the inn.keeper, started in pur.
suit of Turner, on whom, for sundry reasons, sus
picion rested, and succeeded in catching him, after
some pretty shrewd dodging, just as lie was start
ing in the fast lino for Philadelphia.
After his arrest, it was discovered that a box
containing tools, which he claimed, was marked
"A. Weaver," and that he had written directions to
Mr. llopple, with reference to the disposition of the
box, signed A. Weaver. This led to an examina
tion of the contents, which were found to be the
property of the late Mr. A. Weaver, who was buried
the sense morning that the roillaia robbed his widow
and o) pitons of their property. A package of cloth
ing, which, either in texture or style of cut, did not
suit his fastidious taste, was found on Sunday
morning, on the wharf at the foot of Locust Street,
and restored to its owners. Another portion of the
stolen goods was recovered in Philadelphia, having
been sent there by him; and another part still re
mains among the missing.

LETTER FROg AtEXICO.
Wo have been furnished with the following let
ter from P. Morris, a volunteer from this place, by
Mr. J. 1). Wright, to whom it was addressed.
It appears the writer was in Puebla. during the
besiegement of that city, which lasted 33 days, and

to maintain their post or die, endured, Its ho says,

PLIELMA, MEXICO, Oct. 31, 1817
I should have written you long ere this, but there
has not been an opportunity of sending a letter, as
we have been closely besieged in this place for the
last two months. A train will leave here fur Vera
Cruz in a few days by which I send these lines, and
give you a short detail of our sufferings and pri
vations in this place. Gcn. Scott left here on the
7th of August, leaving behind, to garrison this
place, about 2200 men, 1500 of whom were in
mates of the hospital. Not more than two or three
weeks elapsed before we began to see signs of
trouble in the horizon. Our men visiting the city
ware insulted, and some of them assassinated in
the open streets. We were every day told that the
guerillas under Gen. Urrea were coming in force to
make us evacuate the town, nor were we tong disap
pointed in their appearance. About 3to 4000 of
them encamped outside the town, in fair view of
us. They commenced their infernal design of
starving us out by cutting off all supplies of beef
and other provisions coming in from the country.
They robbed their own countrymen with as little
scruple as they would us. They made an attack on
our wagons and mules in the night time and suc
ceeded in driving in our small guard and capturing
over •100 mules. Every day their number increas
ed, and they because more bold; while, in the mean
time, we fortified ourselves as strongly us we pos
sibly could. They made several charges into the
town but never adventured a fair attack on us.—
The siege was now fairly coin meneed : we were
penned up closely in our quarters, they firing on us
daily and nightly from the house-tops, which we
returned with hearty good will, though surrounded
by numbers three to one, and by robbers, too, front
whom we expected no mercy. No thought of fear
could find a harbor in our breasts; every man
was determined to maintain hie post, or, in
the event of being overpowered, to fall with it,
fighting to the lust. Never was there a garrison
of poor devils heated in before, that were more de
termined on victory or death; and I am more than
proud when I remember they were our own boys
El om the old Keystone state, with hearts es strong
and firm as the iron she nurses in her own bosom.
The garrison was composed of Capt. limey;
Co. C., Capt. Small ; Co. K., Capt. Heron ; Co. 3.,
Capt. Dana; Co. A., 4th artillery, Capt. Miller,
Regulars,tive of the mountain llowitzer and Rocket
battery, under Lt. Ladley; also five of the ordnance
men with four howitzers, which proved the salva
tion of the place. As the Mexicans had no artil
lery they could not stem the tide of iron rain our
little pieces showered on them, at every charge
dispersing them like leaves scattered by the
autumn blast. There are numerous instances of
personal gallantry and bravery during•this siege,
that would entitle the actors to be placed in unison
with the daring of the brave Murat. One charge
I must find room for,—the one in which the brave
William Eurick fell. The Mexicans had thrown
up a breast work of cotton across the street, com
manding the entrance to the general hospital, and
only one hundred yards from it, so that all who
entered or came out were exposed to their fire
crossing the street. Their intention was to starve
us, and they came pretty near succeeding in their
inlet nal design, when our brave adjutant, Lieut. J.
Welder, of Wilkesbarre, Pa., charged their battery
in the night. with only 15 men, and actually drove
200 of the enemy from it, killing 12 or 15 of them,
This charge, though made through a misunder.
standing of orders, was nobly executed, and is con
sidered by all, one of the most brilliant exploits of
daring bravery, that has occurred during this war.
The young men from York who joined Captain
Small's company, were engaged in this affair, and
proved themselves worthy sons of the old Keystone.
They also cut their way through houses, over a
square, from one room to another, fighting as they
went, as every wall was defended by the Mexicans;
they succeeded in driving them before them and
blowing up a hoese occupied by the enemy, which
was the object of the attack. In this as in many
other instances, the gallant Capt. Small and his
command behaved with the greatest bravery. The
Captain is beloved and respected by his men, and
is well worthy of them.
Our own company is in Mexico, they were in
the hard fight there, and suffered severely. NVe
lost our Ist Lieut. Callender, and about 15 of the
I men. Suydam, who is with them, is safe yet. I
will here add a list of us who were obliged to be
left here sick, but have seen the hardest kind of fare
and fighting :—Sgt. Page, Curp. Morris, Engineer
Croniniller, Private Weaver, Adjutants Mouse and
Slade—three of whom are in the land of spirits.—
Weaver is an old trump; they can neither sicken
or kill hint. I must wind up now, and should
Providence ever restore me to my friends I will
talk you a dozen sheets full of incidents that have
occurred here. GIVC my best respects to all inqui

AN is SAM—The saltness of the
ocean has usually been regarded as a special pro.
vision of nature to guard against certain incon
veniences which might otherwise have resulted.—
The pretence of so much salt water in solution,
depresses the freezing point of the water many de.
green, thereby dimiithhing the dangerous facility
with which fields of ice are produced in the polar
regions. It has been said also, that the salt is use.
ful in checking evaporation, and also that it aids
in preventing the corruption of the water by the
accumul.tion of animal and vegetable remains.
Without for a moment questioning the incidental
benefits resulting from the circumstances under
discussion, and which, in one case ut least, are
quite obvious, it may be suggested that the saltness
of the sea may be considered an inevitable result
of the present disposition of things. than a special
arrangement expressly intended to fulfil certain
The rain that falls upon the earth is due to the
condensation of aqueous vapor previously existing
in the atmosphere, and which is supplied in a great
part by evaporation from the surface of the sca—
the air of the latter, compared with that of the
land, being very ;peat, necessarily so perhaps, to
furnish this requisite extent of evaporating surface.
This water, us it is well known, is perfectly fresh
and pure, the saline constituents of the ocean hay.
ing no sensible degree of volubility at that tempera.
lure at which the vapor had been raised. No
sooner, however, does it reach the earth, than It
becomes contaminated with the soluable substances
which it meets while flowing on the surface of the
ground, or percolating beneath. It is thus that the
waters of springs and rivers invariably contain a
greater or less amount of alkaline and earthly salts,
which all eventually find their way into the sea,
and there remain, since there is no channel for
their return. The same condition of sea water is
but an exaggeration of that of ordinary lakes,
rivers and springs ; the material.; arc the same, and
of necessity so; the ocean being in fact the great
repository of all soluble substances which, during
innumerable ages, have been separated by a process
of washing from the land. The ease of the sea is
but a magnified representation of what occurs in
every lake into which rivers flow, and from which
there is no outlet except by evaporation. Such a
lake is invariably a salt lake. It is impossible that
it can be otherwise; and it is curious to observe
that this condition disappears when an artificial
outlet is provided for the waters. It will be re.
membered that the saltness of the ocean is very far
exceeded by that of several inland lakes of the
kind described. That of And near the Caspian,
and the Dead Sea in Judea, are remarkable exam.
Tun BANK OF ENULANIL—Francis Child started
the first bank in London : his shop was on the site
of the present bankinghousc of Child & Co., near
Temple-bar ; the books of the firm go back to 16:20,
and refer to prior documents. Hoare's books date
from 163 U, and Snow's from 1685. The career of
William Patterson, "who founded the Bank of Eng.
land, and died in poverty and neglect," is told in
touching terms, particularly that part which re
lates to the unlbrtuuatc expedition to Darien in
1798. The Bank of England was chartered in
1694; it met with great opposition from the gold
smiths, the previous bankers of London, whose
monopoly of business it intended to destroy; but
it triumphed over all difficulties. It wos, however,
very nearly prostrated during the Rebellion in 1745,
when Sir 11.11oare, a London banker and gold.
smith, collected XlOO,OOO of its notes and unforced
payment, and Sir Francis Child of the sang pro.
fession, collected a great sum in the notes of the
bank. But the bank stood out against all opposi
tion, and maintained its credit. The first forgery
upon the bank was perpetrated sixty-four years
after it establishment, by Richard Wm. Vaughn,
a linendraper, of Stafford. The bank first circu
lated notes of ten, fifteen, and twenty pounds, in
17.59; notes for five pounds were not issued until
1795, and those of ono and two pounds value in

two men could be got to go to law with each other,
