By the arrival here yesterday of the
steamship Galveston, Captain Crane
from Galveston, the sth instant, we
have received the Civilian and the News
df that port, and other papers from the
interior of the State.
The Civilian of the 30th ult., states
that a company is about to be started in
Galveston and Brazos Navigation Com
pany, for the purpose of cutting a canal
from San Luis or West Galveston Bay
to the Brazos river, with the privilege
also of connecting by canal the waters
of the Brazos river with the San Bernard
Peach Creek add Colorado. It is mten-
Aed to apply to the Legislature for a
canal charter. The capital stock will
de $150,000, with the privilege of in-
Creasing it to $300,000, to be divided
into shares of $lO each.
We take the following from the Vit
toria Advocate of the 2d inst.
The editor of the Western Texan has
been a letter to Major Babbitt from an
bfficer of the army, dated at el Pasodel
Norte, dated September 16, The wri
ter states that the government train had
hrrived there on the Sth ult., having
been fifty-three days on the march. The
writer adds :
6 , Report says that Americans in the
employ of the State authorities of Chi
huahua have entered our territory, at
tacked, killed and scalped peaceful In
dians, near Presidio del Norte. This
will produce among the various tribes
hostility towards all white men. Chi
huahua is now literally besieged by the
Indians because of this outrage."
News from El Paso dated the 16th
September had been received by Major
Babbitt, Assistant Quartermaster Gener
al. The Got ernment train had arrived
after being out 110 days, but only fifty
;hide were occupied in marching. Corn
is Worth $3 a bushel there, and beef is
not to be hadt Fifty dollars per yoke
had been offered for the tender footed
attic belonging to the train.
A fight had taken place between a
detachment tjf American troops coin
mended by Major Stein, and a party of
Apache Indians; about ninety miles from
Dona Ann, in the direction of the Gila.
COrpdfill NorwoOd and Sergeant Snyder
Were killed. Major stein was slightly
woundbd. The loss of the Indians was
not ascertained, but forty horses and
mules were retaken. The Americans
were from forty to fifty; the Indians
fifty to sixty, but the latter wets strong.
ly posted in almost impervious thick
The San Antonio Western Texan of
the 20th ult., says.
A train of about 175 carts is now be•
ing fitted out from this place for the
pass by the way of Las Moran, and will
probably leave in ten days.--.7r. 0. Pic

Pia PEN NvisAncas.—The law against
treating or maintaining nuisances of
this character was clearly laid down in
the Philadelphia Court of Quarter Ses
sions on Saturday last, by Parsons. In
charging the jury empannelled in the
case of a man who was on trial for keep
ing a pig pen—
The Judge took the broad ground that
no man has a right so to occupy his prop
erty as to incommode or annoy his neigh
bor. It had been decided, he said, in
the Supreme Court of this State, by
Judge Sergeant, that the keeping of one
pig In a pen in a thickly populated neigh
borhood, was per se (of itself) a nuisqe
ce. Fornfty, it was supposed, trial.
it must be proven detrimental to the
health of a neighborhood to make it a
nuisance; but within the last 25 years
a more liberal construction had been giv
en to tl►e law in relation to nuisances,
and it was now sufficient that the busi
ness complained eshould be annoying to
the citizens residing in its locality or
who were in the habit of passing along
the high road near which it established.
of Quarter Sessions of !Jerks county,
last Week Catherine Eisenbise was con
victed of being a common scold. This
offence was formerly punished with duck
ing and as late as 1824 the Court of
Quarter Sessions of Philadelphia, seri.
tenced a certain Nancy James "to be
placed in a certain engine of correction
ailed a ducking stool on Wednesday,
the third day of November, then next
ensuing, between the hours of 10 and
12 o'clock in the morning, and so being
placed therein to be plunged three times
into the water ; to pay the costs of pros
ecution, and to stand committed until
the sentence is complied with." The
Supreme Court decided, however, that
this punishment, so far from being cal
culated to reform the offender, would
only make her scold to the end of her
life—and that the only punishment was
fine, or fine and imprisonment, at the
discretion of the Court.
tional Intelligencer of Monday learns
from an official source that in the amount
of revenue which will be requisite to
meet the expenditures of the Govern
ment for the fiscal years ending the 30th
of June, 1850, and the 30th June, 1851,
there will be a deficit of between fifteen
and twenty millions of dollars. This
deficit. it says, will not have been occa
sioned by any insufficiency of the cur
rent revenue to meet the ordinary expen
ditures of the Government, but by the
extraordinary expenditures growing out
of the Mexican War and the late Treaty
of Peace With that country.
IRELAND.—Letters, from this dhhappy
country state, that ttlseS of general suf
fering were never runre severe than at
present. The absent land proprietors,
(that class of absentees who have deri
ved their Main Suriport from Ireland, and
spend little or nothing in the country,)
have been called together by the Govern
ment, under t h e pressure ,of events to
see What could be done. The result is,
after visiting their landed estates and
seeing for themselves, a general surren
der of the rents due; and in addition', a
reduction of relit equal to, q 0 per cent.
Quite one eighth part of the populrition
of Ireland are now living upon charity.
