The New Y,,,k American says, there
are but two ltun Wroks int the United
States that make Railroad Iron. Ihe
first was made - at the Great Westero
Iron \Yolks, ned in New Yot k and
Roston,) on the Allegheny river, 40 miles
above Pittsburg. 'rids company made
QOO tons in 1845, for Madison, Intl. and
continued to make it till about two months
since, when the COIN/ally failed, and the
winks were bought by Mr. Pray, of Bos
ton, who ouw.carries them on. The next
company that made Railroad Iron, was
the Mount Savage iron Company, 9 miles
from Cumberland in Maryland. Th ,, se
works Nett into operation in 1514. It is
this compaity which had contracted to
supply the lron for the Fall River and
Taunton Railroad—But has failed to do
so, and (Its delayed the completion of
dint road.
It was a specimen of the Mount Sat
age Iron which extorted a boast on the
flour of the House the other day, from
one of the Pennsylvania.; Locofocos, that
as good an article could be manulactured
here lot- $24 a tun. as coul d be procured
from Englund ; and a res:tonse from Mr.
Grinnell that he would take several thou
sand tons at that price. These (the
Mount Savage ) were built with capital
but owed in London by S. et wariwout
who is a considerable stockholder.
The Great Westara, or Brady's Bend
Iron Works are now completing contracts
for Railroad Iron. The last account
from the furtii.ce, which has just been
nut in blast, was most favorable. They

cc, taiu the result of a (uel between Mr.
Clinginan of North Carlina, and Mr.
Yancey, of Alabama, members of the U.
S. House of Representatives, originating
in some remarks applied to the former by
the latter in a speech made by hint week
before last on the Texas quesion. The
Baltimore American Repo)lican gives
the following result of the matter. it
says, two gentlemen with their seconds
and other friends, were in this city
sotne days adjustidg the preliminas
ries ; and yesterday morning having
brought their courage to the, " sticking
point," started off for Beltsville, Ott the
Washington railroad" the principals in
hacks, and the seconds and others in a
sprint railroad car, chartered at as ex
pense of $5O. Arrived there, all the
necessary " fixins" for a duel were made,
with due and imposing ceremony, accor
ding to the " code of honor"—the princi
pals were assigned their stations, the se
conds took theirs—and we presume also
the surgeons—when the word to fire was
given and immediately obeyed, fortunate
ly without either being shot or at all inju
red. The friends of the parties then
interfered, and a reconciliation was ea,ils
elircted--both thegentlemen shook hands,
made friends, and left the field of battle
covered all over with honor and glory.

the public ft Ming against Santa Anna,
that his portraits which hung on the walls
of the town house were taken down and
dragged through the streets--they also
threw down his statue, and proceeding to
the Pantheon of St. Fernando, where the
leg which Santa Anna lost in the battle
with the French, was buried, they des
troyed the monument which contained it,
and the leg was dragged forth and kicked

Santa Anna was at Queretaro, at the head

Fatal Steaniboat Accident.
OR Saturday night, the 28th ult., about
eleven o'clock, the steamboat Capitol,
bound from Pittsburg to St. Louis, was
destroyed by fire at St. Mary's Landing,
about seventy miles below St. Louis.— •
The fire originated about midway of the
boilers, probably from some defect in the
furnaces, and spread with astonishing
The alarm was instantly given, and
the passengers, most of whom were asleep,
%,ith the exception of three, succeeded in
making their escape. The flames spread
upwards and through the cabin, so swiftly
that several of those in the cabin effected
their escape by letting themselves down
on the after guards. The wind was blow
ing a strono ' breeze from the buW to the
stern, which drove the flames aft.

(Master Joseph 1).) a daughter, a young
lady, were passengers on board. The

in the gentlematis' cabin-•-the mother
and daughter a room in the ladies' cabin.
From the best accounts we can gather, it
is must probable Mr. DALRYMPLE and his
son, perished in the state room. They
loot been awakened by the Captain, and
this iti the fast that is Certainly known of
them. Mrs. D. and her daughter reached
the cabin, when the toothier fainted and

herself down on the after guard. Thus,

a territorial government, and establishing
a military post for the protection of set
tlers. Two or three NVliiAs in the Senate
will go fur the measure; and nearly all the

whether it end or not. The British Go' -

The matter should be brought before

Alter all, this is but another illustration of
the evils of departure from first princi

'Sears' Furnify. Magazine' is a periodical whose ob
ject in to collect, condense and systematize the great
mass of standing general knowledg e , contained hi
works so nuni'etous and voluminous as to he alto
gether beyond the reach of mankind ifl general
and thus collected and prepared, to place it, by its
cheapne.m and comprehensiveness, within the ac
quisition of ALL.
%A . s3 , shall aim to give the Magazine a character
' decidedly American, and to make it to this country
what the Penny Magazine is to 'Great Britaitt.—
Hence we shall introduce, as far as practicable, des
criptions of American History, Manners, Scenery,
and Natural Productions. In furtherance of this
object, we invite our friends abroad to aid us, by
communications and sketches of any thing remark ü
ble, rare, orsiniqua that may come under their ob
servation ; and we trust they will find ample remu
neration for their labor, in the consciousness of
having added a quota to. the sum total of intelligence) .
which is so widely disseminated through the medi
um of Sears' Family Magazine.
From this brief outline of the -a.cuaivs. •
Monthly Magazine,
it'd pabulum for schools, and a treasury
of knowledge for families. the leading object of the
Family Magaime is utility. It in intended that its
morale shall be pure, its information authentic, and
its arrangements in good taste. And while it is the
sincere desire of all Who are ...aed in its publics ,
lion, that it may carry the elmht:liens of ktivdedge
and the light of truth wherever it is received, they.
indulge the hope, that the countenance of the com
munity will look favorably upon them, and that its
arm of support will be extended in their behalf.
