The Aspect of Things in Philadelphia.
The Philadelphia correspondent of the
New York Morning News, a leading Lo
cofoco paper, holds the following lan
guage in regard to the political pros
pects in the former place :
" As for the political world—there is,
beyond a question, an undercurrent in
tne Democracy here that goes the
" whole hog" for the protection of its
iron and coal interests, as identified
. with the Tariff of J 42. The State of
Pennsylvania owes a debt of $40,000,-
000, the interest of which they stagger
under, and they reason in this manner:
that in order to pay their obligations,
. their great interests must be fostered
and protected. Should Nova Scotia coal
be introduced, as they agree it will be,
in a ratio of forty bushels to Pennsyl
vania's, twenty-eight, it will virtually
shut them ont of the , market, and the
canal tolls must be in a corresponding
degree affected, and with it the revenue,
lee., that pays the aforesaid interest. I
really had no idea of the vast interests
that are involved in speaking of coal
alone—in a conversation with Gen. Jo
seph Hall, he enlightened me in regard
to some points, that I must confess I
should before this have taken some pains
to acquaint myself with. He tells me
that in the Lehigh region they send to
market one million tons of coal per an
num, and over thirty million feet of
lumber, and that Schuylkill county alone
was interested ten millions per annum
in its coal trade. Acting under these
strong and powerful interests, the De
mocracy are divided in sentiment in re
gard to the policies of the Tariff of '46,
and have, in order to . further their inte
ress and opinions, met in convention
last evening, and nominated a separate
and distinct ticket, rallying as the Ta
riff Democrats. They nominated Gen.
Joseph Hall as their candidate for She
riff, together with a full county ticket—
the effect of which, I greatly fear, will
be, to throw the county into the hands
I , f the Natives."

HIGHLY IMPORTANT NEWS,
Through the politeness of an eminent
tommercial house, we have just been
placed in possession of the following
most important intelligence from Mex
ico. The news was received by a Brit
ish man of war, which touched at the
Balize with despatches from the British
Minister at Mexico for his government.
The purport of these despatches is,
that the United States have taken pos
session of the Californias, and that the
revolution in favor of Santa Anna is
complete. We publish the following
letters, from which it will be perceived
that the steamer Arab, Santa Anna on
board, Was in sight of Vera Cruz on the
VEitit Cuut Aug, 10, 1846.
Availing ourselves of the opportunity
by a British man of war, we have just
time to state that Mexico and Puebla
have just pronounced in favor of fed
eration and Santa Anna. Gen. Bravo's
government had hardly been established
when it was overthrown, and General
Salez has put himself at the head of the
Government until the arrival of Santa
Anna. tranquility was soon restored.
Gomea Farms sided the partisans of
Santa Anna to bring abbut the revolu
tion. His sons have come down to give
welcome to Santa Anna, who left the
Havana on the Bth inst., in a British
steamer called the Arab, accompanied
by Almonte, Lanariz, Rejon, and Beeves,
and they ought to be here every day.—
Gen. Paredes was taken prisoner, and
is kept in the citadel of Mexico. Gen.
Salez has issued already a letter of con
vocation of Congress on the principles
of 1824, and the members are to assem
ble in Mexitto on the 6th of December
next. The present conveyance carries
the news of the annexation of Califor
nia to the United States, received last
night by express.
VERA CRUZ, Aug. 16, 1846.
Advices have been received by express
of the formal annexation of California
to the United States, and this vessel of
war takes the British Minister's des
patches to New Orleans and to England.
The whole country has declared in
favor of Santa Anna, who left Havana
for this city in the steamer Arab, but
has not yet arrived, which makes his
friends rather anxious for his safety.
P. S. The Arab is just in sight. The
New Orleans Picayune of the 24th Au
, gust says, that the British brig of war
Daring arrived off the Balize last even
ing, from Vera Cruz, and two of her
officers came up to town this morning
with a mail and despatches.
The steamer arrived off Vera Cruz
on the 16th August with Santa Anna on
board. He immediately placed himself
at the head of the movement in that
Department. The Departments of Pu
ebla and Mexico have declared for San
ta Anna, and Paredes has already been
taken prisoner. The revolt at the Cap

into execution the orders dictated for
that purpose by Gen. Taylor. The Cap

Batita and Mutat-nom.
The town of China, on the Rio San
Juan, 65 or 70 miles from Camargo,
was taken on the sth inst., by Captain
McCulloch, of the Texan Rangers,
without opposition. Col. Seguin, with
100 Mexicans were in town, but on the
approach of the Americans they re
treated. Another Mexican depot of
Arms has been found at Matamoros and
a quantity of stores and ammunition.
The Regiment of Rangers, under Col.
Jack Hays and Lt. Col. Walker, left
Matamoras about the 10th inst., on an
incursion into the interior. The precise
route to be taken by them is not known,
and will depend, probably, upon circum
stances. We hope to be kept fully ap
prised of the movements of this corps,
to which great importance is attached
in the Army.

is composed now of only four companies,
with 375 men, has abandoned its en

FIRES IN PITTSBURG—DESPERATE RIOT,
AND Loss OF LIFE.—.The saw mill of John
Patterson, Esq., at Pittsburg, Pa., was
totally destroyed by fire on Saturday
night, 29th ultimo. Loss, about $4OOO.
On Sunday afternoon, following, another
fire broke out in Pittsburg, in a stable
belonging to the tavern of Mr. A. Mor
ton, on • Liberty street, which was soon
A most disgraceful riot, attended with
murder, occurred among the firemen af
ter this fire. It appears that the re had
been some difficulty between the Alle
gheny and Niagara fire companies aid
on returning from the fire they met
and a street fight was the result.
The Advertiser says :
At it they went, pell-mell ; spanners,
horns, clubs and stones were used as the
crowd rushed toward Wood street.—
One man had all his front teeth knoek
ed loose, another had a piece cut out of
his upper lip by a blow from a horn,
another was badly cut above the eye
with a spanner ; heads were cut, and
eyes blackened, &c., in profusion. In
dividuals were repeatedly knocked
down. The worst of it occurred just
opposite the Iron City Hotel, kept by
Mr. Matthew Patrick. Here a young
man, named Edward Lawson, in the
general fight, Was mortally stabbed in
the left temple with a sntall Bowie knife,
to the depth of two inches—.-was cut on
the chin, and also on the back. The
wound in the temple, however, was the
fatal one. There is a dispute as to the
person who stabbed him. It was one or
the other of the two brothers, James
Paul Braddock, and Thoranes. It is gen
erally supposed to have been the first.
Lawson immediately fell, and was car
ried to a hydrant for water. Here he
bled, and looked horrible, apparently
dying; and was immediately after car
ried into Mr. Patrick's Hotel, where he
lay speechless until ten minutes to 7
- o'clock, when he expired. The widow
ed mother was sent for, only to see her
son die, to her indescribable grief.
Braddock has been arrested.
SAD OCCURRINCE.—The Miner's Jour
nal, of Pottsville, gives an account of
an explosion of fire damp on Wednesday
before last, at the colliery worked by
Mr. George Rich, on the West branch
of the Mount Carbon road, known as
Lewis' Vein, which was most disastrous
in its results. It Was followed by what
is known to miners as choke damp, and
black or after damp, by which eight men
were overpowered. So violent was it,
that for a long time no assistance could
be extended to them successfully, and
Mr. Rich, the owner, who entered for
this purpose, was near falling a victim
to his philanthropy. At last they were
extricated, six of them perfectly insen
sible ; one, named John Tiley dead, and
long after, yet another, who, though in
longer than any of the rest, was yet re
covered. Mr. Rich himself was, for a
long time in a state of unconsciousness
and delirium, but is, we learn, recover

The Hollidaysburg Register says that
a most terrible accident occurred on the
Portage Railroad on last Monday week.
The persons injured were on the loco
motive and its tender, and were on their
way to a camp-meeting in the neighbor
hood. The accident occurred about a
mile cast of the Half Way House, in
turning a curve. The locomotive by
some means, hot satisfactorily account
ed for, was thrown from the track, and
upset against the embankment of the
cut through which they were passing,
when a section boat, which was attach
ed.to it, was thrown forward by its im
petus, crushing the engine, and instant
ly killing Col. Thomas D. McGough, a
gentleman connected with the road, and
so severely injuring another man, nam
ed James Bighlan, as to leave no hopes
of his recovery, besides less severely
injuring some four or five others. One
young lady had her hip dislocated—
another lost two of her fingers, &c. &c.
No blame is laid upon the engineer.
The engine was running quite slow at
the time. Drs. James Christy and Le
