1:1 - The Friends of Education in the United
States, are to hold their Convention in Philadel
phia, on the fourth Wednesday in August next,
pursuant to adjournment in October last. An
address by Horace Mann, urging the attendance
of the delegates and the importance of the ob
ject designed by it, has just been published in a
No Pleasing Thad,
Some time since the Locofoco presses found
fault with Gen. Taylor because he avowed no
Opinions on questions of public policy. Since
us California message, however, in which he
laid down the plan of non-action in reference to
the territories, these same consistent papers as
iiert that he is forcing his plan of settlement
upon Congress How are they to be satisfied!
Troqbble with Spain.
The Cuban affair is likely to result in trouble
with Spain. The President has issued orders de
banding the American prisoners taken on the
Mexican Island of Contey. It is said that the
Governor General of Cuba not only refuses to
listen to those demands, but that same of the
prisoners taken have already been shot. War
vessels have been sent by our Government to aid
our Consul and to enforce the demand of our Gov
Slave Trade AbWished.
Gov. Roberts, of Liberia, has written a letter
to Anson G. Phelps, of New York, containing
the gratifying intelligence of an important ac
quisition of territory by that Republic, by which
the slave trade will be effectually rooted out
from the whole Windward Coast of Africa.—
The Liberian Republic appears to be in quite a
flourishing condition,. and may be considered as
the initial point of African civilization.
The Cheap Postage Bill.
It is stated that Mr. Potter, of Ohio, chairman
..31 . the House Committee on the Post Office, has
nearly perfected the cheap postage bill. Its
leading provisions are understood to be—for a
letter weighing lees than a quarter of an ounce,
conveyed any distance this side the Rio Grande,
three cents if paid in advance, otherwise five
cents. If conveyed to California or Oregi,n,
probably the present rates—not settled. Cu cu
lars the same as letters. Stamps of prepaid pos
tage to be sold in quantities of not less than fif
ty dollars' worth, at a reduction of ten per cent.
Newspapers of less than 1,000 square inches, i f
delivered within the State where printed, half a
vent per copy; out of the State, one cent.
Impudence Without a Blush.
The late Locoloco State Convention had the
audacity to try to fasten upon the Whig party
the sin of “fixing upon the Commonwealth an
odious system of corporate and irresponsible mo
nopolies." This beats anything for impudence
that we have ever seen. The last Legislature,
which was largely Locofoco, passed more incor
poration bills than any previous Legislature ever
acted un, and yet these Locofocos seem to think
the people gullible enough to believe that they
are opposed to corporations I Such is the dis
honesty and hypocrisy of Locofocoism.
Excitement in New Mexico.
A special despatch in theN. Y. Tribune, states
that Governor Washington, of New Mexico, has
recently arrived at Washington city, from Santa
Fe, bringing the rather startling intelligence,
that the Texans and New Mexicans had . got into
an actual fight over the boundary question. The
despatch says :
It seems from this, that not long before he
left, a public meeting was held to consider the
boundary question and the claim of Texas, when
a hot dispute arose between a number of citi
zens and Texans. The meeting resulted in a
Tearful riot, which would have ended in a gener
al fight, had not the officer commanding the gar
ison ordered the troops to interfere and prevent
bloodshed, which was done, though not without
difficulty. A great excitement prevails in the
city, the people of which declare that they will
oppose to the utmost the attempt to force upon
them the authority and laws or Texas.
War with Portugal.
A well informed Washington correspondent
writes as follows :
Mr. Clay our Charge des Affaires at Lisbon
is look.d fir in this country before a great while.
So coons as he arrives, the President will trans
mit a special message to Congress, upon the sub
ject of our present relations with the Portugese
Dominions, that will smell considerably strong
'of gunpowder. 'rhe difficulties that exist, grow
out of the continued refusal of the Portugese
Government to pay the indemnities to American
citizens, without pretending to give an excuse,
for such injustice. Things have been brought
now to such a crisis, that there is no alternative
but payment of war.
SUBTYRRANEAN LARK AT LANCASTER.-The
Lancaster (Pa.) Gazette gives an account of an
under-ground body of water, which it says lies
beneath the highest point of the city, 27 feet un
der the surface, and 20 feet above Centre Square.
It was first discovered by a workman digging a
well, ar.d is thought to be 50 feet wide and 10
*deep. It flows in a southwestern direction.—
The Gazette proposes that the water be used to
supply the city.
GRAIN AND CALICO.—It is stated on the most
reliable authority that the entire exports of
breadstuf f ' from the United States, to England
in 1849, will not be sufficient to pay for over
ono-half the Calicos imported from that country
during the same period In the year 1840 we
imported from Great Britain alone over 12,000.
900 dollars worth of Calico ! Meantime the
heaviest calico manufacturers in the United
States have failed.
D7-Rumors from Cuba represent that the
troubles commenced by Lorzz are by no means
ended. The authorities are hanging such of the
invaders as they have laid their hands on.

in Cincinnati by steam.
Supreme Court Decisions.
The following is the decision of the Supreme
Court, in the case of Hileman vs. Bauslaugh,
taken up from this county :
Opinion delivered by Gibson C. J. The rule
in Shelley's ease though of feudal origin is not
a relic of barbarism. It is part of a system,
and a complete one, and of value at the present
day; and cannot be torn from it, without dis
turbing the foundations of properly. In devises
the words are controlled by the intent of the
testator, but in deeds cannot be qualified by im
plication or the context, or controlled by any
thing whatever. The word “heirs" is a term of
art in a deed, and of settled meaning.
In this case the limitations were to Esther du
ring her natural life; and after her decease to
the heirs of her body; and to then, and their
heirs and assigns forever. Held, that by the rule
in Shelly's case Esther took but an estate for
life, and the fee vested in her children then in

teal. They thought that as the rule is not under
stood by the great body of the people, and even
by some lawyers, that it is time for it to pass
The following is the decision In the case of
Jackson vs. Summerville Heirs, taken up from
Blair county :
Opinion by Coulter J. Fraud vitiates all con
tracts into which it enters; and cannot be affir
med by the party defrauded. Such contracts are
essentially non-entities, and even legal proceed
ings and judgments founded upon them are avoi
dable ; and evidence to prove that the title of
defendants wasp idured by actual fraud, first
upon plaintiffs anMgen upon the Court was ad
missible. Deeds procured by covin and false
hood, as between the :males, are as dead as for
ged deeds. So of a decree of Court in ease of
imposition ; and it may be inquired into an issue
not decided by the decree or judgment itself upon
allegation of the imposition. Such decrees are
as it were coram non j udice. The true rule is,
that where the parties have been heard, or due
notice given, the judgment or decree of a Court
of competent jurisdiction upon the point in issue
cannot be overpowered in a collateral proceed
ing upon an allegation of mistake or error. But
where fraud entered into the procurement of the
decree, the rule is not so.
The declarations of one of the parties guilty
of the fraud, may be given in evidence, as in
conspiracy, after the concert has been proved.
Judgment affirmed. Miles for plaintiff in error;
Stevens, S. S. Blair, contra.
The Galphin Claim.
The Galphin claim continues to trouble the
minds of Locofoco editors, who affect to see in
it all that is corrupt and reprehensible; but
some of them torture the facts in order to assail
the present Administration. For instance one
of these Locofoco papers, says
“Some insist that the payment of the princi
pal of the Galphin claim, by General Taylor's
Cabinet, was just," &c.
This is news indeed, to those who have given
any attention to the subject. Will the editor of
that paper treat its readers so fairly as to infmm
them that the principal of this Galphin claim
was not paid by Gets. Taylor's Cabinet, but
was paid by Robert J. IValter, Secretary of the
Treasury under James K. Polk I And when
Mr. Walker paid the principal, he had all the
information before him that was necessary in the
1 premises. The law of Congress directed him
to examine and adjust the claim, which he slid,
leaving the matter of interest an open question.
We express no opinion in the premises further
than this, that if it was right in the Polk Admin
istration to pay the principal, it was wrong to
refuse payment of interest from the time of ma
king demand. We remark further, that if the
heirs and representatives of Galphin had made a
Pacheco affair of it, and based their claims upon
alleged loss of slave property, "Democracy"
would have gone principal and interest with "a
perfect rush," clamoring down all opposition.
Great Drought at the West.
The Ohio, Michigan and Wisconsin papers are
making sad complaints of the effect of a drought
on the prospects for a good grain crop in that
region. The Cleveland Herald says that the
wheat is lilting, but here and there a kernel.—
The Detroit Advertiser thinks that the wheat
looks worse than it has since 1842, and is of
opinion that even with copious and seasonable
rains hereafter, that not mare than a two-third
average crop will be realized. In Canada West
the ground is parched for want of rain. In some
districts not a shower has fallen for a month.
07140 R ACE UItEELEY, while at Washington a
few days since, writing to the Tribune, exclaims
—"When will this desolating flood of talk allow
justice to be done 1 The country languishes
under it—lndustry droops—Elope yields to des
pair. Men in Congress !—stop this deluge of
worthless talk, and give us one week of action !
Only one faithful week!"
07 - Beauty, without modesty, fails to charm.
Many a lady with a handsome face, fails to re
ceive the homage of admiration, because she ei
ther does not "act the lady," or overacts it,
while a plain face and becoming manners, prove
infinitely more attractive.
Eig"'The editor of the N. Y. Tribune writes,
from Washington, thus: “1 count the Senate off
27 for the Compromise and 32 against it. Mr.
Clay should know the Senate far better, and he
conlidently believes it will pass."
Ct7The Sevens of Berlin, it seems, were
quite excited at hearing the account of Dr. Park
mans's murder, but they have not yet been able
to settle the question, whether the murderer is
Daniel Webster, or the Lexicographer.

More British iron
. Immense quantities of foreign iron are said to
be coming into New York, and the Express
notices six thousands tons imported byone New
York house to meet home orders; thus, the
freight excepted (and much of it comes in for
eign bottoms) taking a quarter of a million of
dollars to Great Britain for an article as easy of
manufacture, and as natural to our land or min
erals, as flour or corn. This is the operation of
the Tariff of 2846, which was approved and en
dorsed by the Locofoco State Convention, and
which called forth the letter of the British Min
ister, Mr. BULWER, protesting against any al
teration in said Tariff.
Death in the Pulpit.
Rev. Wm. D. Allen, of the M. E. Church,
died suddenly on Sunday, at Wood's church, in
Chesterfield county, Va.
He conducted the early part of the eterclses
of worship, concluded his sermon, and commen
ced the .last prayer," (as it is termed) but had
only uttered one or two sentences, when he fell
backwards in the pulpit and instantly ceased to
breathe. It is said that he had ruptured a blood
vessel. Mr. Allen was an unmarried man.
