From New Mexico,
E.lntelligence has been received from Santa Fe,
vin St. Louis to the 16th ult. The election on
the 20th Juno resulted in the choice of Dv. Henry
Connelly, for Governor, and Emanuel Alvarez,
for Lieut. Governor. Members of the Legislature
were also elected, and that body had convened at
she time appointed by the State Constitution, when
some curious scenes were enacted. The parties
are divided, one advocating a territorial, and the
other a State Government. A member of the
Senate presented his credentials and was admitted,
but it being afterwards found that he would not
tote with the majority, he was excluded from ta
king his seat, and his opponent admitted. Here
upon a number of the Senators and Representa
tives withdrew, leaving the House - without a quo
rum. The remaining members took upon them
selves the responsibility to fill the vacant seats
with men enough to form a quorum, and procee
ded with the business. Major K. H. Whitman and
Major F. A. Cunningham, both late paymasters
in the United States army, were elected United
PROFESSOR WEBSTER.--We are assured, says
the New York Tribune, upon good authority, one
who professes to know, that Professor Webster
has made another and full confession, in which he
admits the premeditated murder of Dr. Parkman,
thus falsifying his previous statements. This con
fession is in the hands of the authorities, but will
not be made public until after the execution.
A Self-acting Saw Mill.
The St. Louis Republican gives an account of a
saw mill constructed on a new and singular prin
ciple. The inventor is Mr. Amos Jackson, of Po
towatamie county, lowa. The mill derives its
power front the weight of the log to be sawed.—
The ways on which the carriage travels are fixed
on bearings that enter into the frame; the oppo
site ends are provided with large segments of a cog
wheel working into a series of cog wheels and
pinions; thus when the log is pushed forward to
the saw, its weight is brought to act with groat
force through the segments of a shaft, having sev
eral intermediate gearings to increase the speed
sufficiently for driving the crank shaft. The price
of these mills is said to be light compared with
others, and they can he attached to wheels for
travelling through the country.
A MANIFEST DESTINY MAN.—A man named
Henry Ray was arrested in New York on Monday,
for smashing the city lamps. By his own confes
sion, he had broken no fewer than twenty-eight,
before he was taken up. He said he could give no
reason for his conduct, further than "he felt some
thing within him, telling him that it was his desti
ny to break lamps ;" but the police magistrate
tho't his manifest destiny lay in quite another di
rection, and so he was sentenced to the peniten
tiary to break stone for three months.
South Carolina in Agony.
The Charleston Mercury has an article headed
"Consolidation, Abolition, and the Bayonet," a
real blood and thunder article. The President's
message on the Texas question is execrated as
atrocious and shameless. It is stifpnatized as
another Force Proclamation, and as a means, not
for maintaining a Tariff, but for securing what is
infinitely more to be abhorred, the triumph of abo
lition. "The times that try men's souls," the
Mercury says, "are fast approaching, and the South
must soon know who are the true men and who
are the traitors within her limits." No doubt of it !
FRUITFUL MornEn.—The census-taker, in the
western part of Sciota county, Ohio, informs the
editor of the Portsmouth Dispatch, that ho visited
a fluidly in which the mother hail recently given
birth to her twentieth child! He says it was a
sight worth beholding to see the youngsters run
ning about the house, ranging from small to great
like the pipes of an organ.

Senate the power of a protest, and it was rejected.

THE AMERICAN OIL.
THE celebrated American Oil has been in use
long enough to test its powers. It is rec
ommended as one of the best, if not the very
best medicine for the cure of Rheumatism, try
sipelas, Tetter, Toothache, Cramps, Spasms,
cholic, burns and scalds, bowel complaints,
quincy, croup and sore throat, inflamation, &c.
Read the following certificate
HUNTINGDON, March 11, 1830.
For the benefit of sufferers like me and oth
, era, I do freely declare the following facts
have suffered more or less for twenty years with
the most desperate Rheumatism, and also for 18
years at times with most desperate pain in the
stomach, which at times seemed to expand as if
it would burst; also for many years I was ter•
ribly troubled with cramps in my legs—indeed
I can't describe all my sufferings for so long a
time. I could do no business for the last ten
years, nor had I a single good night's sleep for
the last five years. I never could find any relief
worth mentioning, until last November, when 1
met with the Extract of American Oil, and to
my no little surprise I got relieved of all in a
short time and to this day. I respectfully in
vite all who choose to call and see me upon the
matter; such I can tell much more. I can say
it has dor,e wonders on others around me in va
rious complaints. If ever an article was put
out honestly, this is one. I know it sells rap
idly here. No family in the lend will be with
out it when they once know its use.
HurrriNom., March 11, 1850.
I do hereby certify to the following facts :
That I have suffered for live years past with
pain in my bark, spirie and kidnies, and never
received any relief but by bleeding, for a few
days only. Last November I got a bottle of
the Extract of American Oil, I used it inward
ly, and to my surprise it removed the complaint
in a short time. From what I have seen and
heard of its wondrous effects upon others in des
perate cases, I can freely recommend tr, end be
lieve it to be worth all the humbugs in the land,
and do believe it will do all for what it is so
highly recommended. C. COUTS.
Linvisrown, March 1850.
I never before gave a certificate, but this I
give with a clear conscience for the benefit of
sufferers like myself. I suffered with the Ery.
aipelas or St. Antony's Fire, mixed with Tet
ter, so pronounced by my doctor, for 12 years.
The suffering I endured is beyond description.
At times all my hair came off my head. During
this time I had no relief for more than a few
days at a time. Last October 1 got a bottle of
the Extract of American Oil, used it inwardly
and outwardly, and to my great astonishment
and my neighbors, I got clear of it in a short
time, and to this time I have noticed its won
drous effects on other desperate complaints. I
do assure my friends and the public that it is
indeed a wonderful thing for many complaints.
I invite all whochoose to visit me in Lewistown.
