the Cotton: Crops of the World.

the Southern states should refuse us cotton upon
corms as fair as it may be sold to :7.l.tropean mer

it elsewhere; and here, in Africa, there are invi

in the South constantly fluctuate, and what is the
crop of 800,000,000 pounds this year, may be the

Which, if produced in a single year, instead of
at stated periods, would be sufficient, exclusive of
the United States, to supply the world; for the
consumption is only about 600,000,000 pounds.—
Well, it 599,000,000 of pounds could be produced
any year, why not again? and if in the countries
named, why not again there? Africa is capable

• ttempted Escape of Smith O'Brien.
The following account is taken from one of the
Van I)iemen's Land papers
" On Sunday and Monday, the Victoria cutter,
commanded by a man named Ellis, was observed
hovering round the island, the wind being light,
till evening, when it fell calm. Shortly before
sundown, Mr. S. O'Brien, who, notwithstanding
his avowed intention of escaping, should an oppor
tunity offer, has considerable liberty allowed him,
went down to a sandy cove, one of the few places
where boats generally land, and just as he reached
the shore, a boat with men put in, and he rushed
up to his middle to meet it. A constable on duty
who was witness to the act, covered him with his
piece, and called to him to forbear, seconding this
by rushing at the boat and knocking a hole in her
bottom with his combine. Be then pointed out to
all four the folly of resistance, and required them
to submit quietly, which they did. The officer in
charge, meantime, having missed his prisoner,
came rushing down the bench, and secured him
while still in the water. Ile was then conducted
to his house, and the three men confined, fur trans
mission to Hobart Town. A whale boat, with six
bands, was sent on board the cutter, seized her,
and brought her in. She, too, with the parties on
board, will he sent up immediately. It has not been
thought necessary to impose any further restraint
on Mt. S. O'Brien, greater than that to which he
was previously cqeeted.
'Judge Andrews of the Supreme Court, sit
ting at Cleveland, Ohio, a few days ago, set aside
• verdict on the sole ground that one of the parties
had held a conversation with one of the jurors
touching the matter then in issue. In giving his
opinion, the Judge took occasion to say that "lie
was not dissatisfied with the verdict, nor did it ap
pear that the jury had been in the least influenced
by the conversation; but he put it on the distinct
and sole ground, that public policy and a proper
administration ofjustice required that jurors should
never in any manner be approached by parties to
suits." And in this Judge Andrews was exem

opinion that gold exists in considerabl quantities
at that place or near it.

MONUMENT TO COMMODORE DECATUR.-An
elegant monument has, within a short time, been
erected in St. Peter's Church yard, Philadelphia,
over the remains of the late Commodore Stephen
Decatur. The remains were deposited in the
elturch yard on the 29th of October, 1846, and the
monument was erected during the present year.—
The monument, with its surmounting eagle, stands
24 feet 7 inches high. The material is granite,
except the eagle and the block on which the in
scriptions are carved.
Srssx COMMUNICATIOI( WITII CIMA.—The
initiatory step in the movement for a regular
steam communication between San Francisco and
Canton is shout being taken by an enterpising
Inerehant of the former city, who has purchased
the well known steam propeller McKim and in
tends running her regularly between San Francis
co and the Sandwich Islands. This is the first
link in the chain of steam communicatios which is
to connect the points named and it will require
but an additional vessel to ply between the Islands

Benton on Ad Valorem'.
In a speech in the Senate, the other day, Mr.
Benton held the following langtiage in regard to
ad valorem duties. It will be remembered that
the ad valorem principle of levying duties is the
distinguishing feature of the present tariff. We
Commend his remarks to the attention of caw loco
"I concur with the Secretary (Corwin) in his
premises in toto, and with a port of his recommen
dations, I concur with him in his opinion that im
portations will diminish, carrying with it a dimi
nution of revenue from customs; that the ad valo
rem system is the parent of frauds and ought to be
abandoned and recourse again had to specific du
ties in all cases in which they are applicable. On
this point I have nothing to confess as gained from
experience. I need no experience to inform me
that universal ad valorems were the most unequal
of duties, and the most fruitful of frauds. I knew
that always, and said it always.
I condemned the same dogma when it was in
troduced in the tariff of 1846; and now, after a
brief experiment of four years, experience con
demns it. I voted for that act; but only to get
rid of the act of 1842, and with the declared be
lief that experience would soon produce a condem
nation of the universal ad valorem dogma, and
force a return to the old system; and such is now
about the fact.
The following paragraph we copy from the Sun•
bury American, a Locofoco paper:
"The Wilkesharre Rolling Mill has recently
been sold by the Sheriff, for $9,000. The mill
cost the owners $45,000 to erect. Like many of
the iron works, it sunk under the ad valorem Tar
iff of 1840. With all these evidences surrounding
us, Dr. Sturgeon, our enlightened Senator, decla
red that our Iron Masters were in a most flour
condition, and some of his equally enlight
ened coadjutors of the Press, re-echoed this spas
modic effort of our brilliant Senator. We trust
our legislature will never again send to Washing
ton a Senator, who could thus be made to stul
tify himself to please a few demagogOes, free tra
ders and foreign importers. Pennsylvania de
mands something to protect her great Staple in
terests—her cold and iron, and should never suf
fer a free trader to represent her in Congress."

The First Fugitive Slave Law.
The Boston Post has the following bit of politi•
cal history :
"The Fugitive Slave Bill of 1793 was drafted
by George Cabot, of Massachusetts, in November,
it was passed by the Senate on the 18th ofJanua
ry unanimously, fourteen from free and thirteen
from slave States voting for it. The House com
mittee, Theodore Scdgwiek and Sheerjashub
Bourne, of Massachusetts, and Alexander White,
of Virginia, reported the bill to the body, by
which it was passed on the sth of February with
out discussion. Eight Free States were represen
ted by thirty-one votes, six slave States by twen
ty-four votes; tree States majority, seven. The

Massachusetts gave six yeas to one nay. This
record shows that the free States passed the first

of the Journal of Commerce says that there is a
certainty now of a collision between Gov. Quit

The Marshal of Mississippi is a brave, tearless
man, and will, at all hazards, arrest Gov. Quit
man. The Covenor is surrounded at every place,
where he may he, with confidential friends, who

More Free Trade Tariff Fruits.
At the last Court in Clarion county, three Blast
Furnaces were sold at Sheriff's Sales, at about
fifty-one, eight hundred and fifty, and live thou
sand dollars—(the last having been hid off at
sl,s(x, but pot up again under an arrangement
between creditors,) and sold to them. After sac
rificing some $20,000 worth of property, the cred
itors will suffer in the aggregate a loss of about
60,000, and leave the former owners hopelessly
insolvent. The lost claims bear heavily upon the
laborers, and farmers in the vicinity, whose want
of acquaintance with the danger, left them second
to the sagacious merchant creditor.
During the same week another Furnace in that
county failed, the proprietors of another confessed
judgments sufficient to subject it in a short time
to the Sheriff's services.

Immigration to the U. S. in 1850.
The Secretary of State has furnishsd to Con
gress a statement of the number of immigrants
which have arrived at the ports of the United
States for the year ending 30th of September,
1850, the general aggregate of which is 315,333,
opposed to 299,610 lust year. This shows an in
crease of 15,723, notwithstanding New York has
fallen off nearly 14,000. The increase in Cali
fornia has been between 70 and 80,000; but omit
ting this new State, the decrease has been pro
portionate with New York throughout the Union.
At the rate of 315,000 per annum, the immigra
tion to occur from 1851 to 1861—ten years—
would amount to three millions and one-eighth—
or equivalent to the white population of the whole
South in 1840. It is remarkable too, that of the
numbers last year nearly one-fourth come here
prepared to engage in useful branches of industry,
with means at hand, and but a moity of that pop
ulation denominated paupers.
Thirty veare ago, on the 224 of December,
Daniel Webster delivered the Second Centennial
oration at Plymouth, in which, with that wise
forecast which has ofteu distinguished him as a
far-seeing statesman, he said—"lt may be safely
asserted that there are now more than a million of
people, decendants of New England ancestry, liv
ing free and happy in regions whirls hardly sixty
years ago, were tracts of unpenetrated forest.—
'or do rivers, or mountains, or seas, resist the
progress of industry or enterprise. Ero long the
sons of the Pilgrims will be on the shores of the
Pacific." The sons of the Pilgrims are on the
shores of the Pacific already. They are there
with their brethren of other States, and there they
have founded an American colony, created an
' American form of Government, established an
American State, and, under the stars and stripes
of the Republic, they are represented in the Amer
Americans in Athens.
Spirit of American Women abroad—Their Refit
sal to be Presented to the Queen.
Advices from Athens announce that a party of
American ladies, desirous of being presented to
the Queen, the United States' consul, M. Dioma
tari, sought an interview with M. Grivas, marshal
of the palace, by whom he was directed to address
a note from his office, stating the wish and names
of the parties desirous of being presented. This
was done, and an hour fixed for the interview, the
consul being invited to present the gentlemen,
whilst court etiquette required the ladies should
he introduced by the grand Maitresse. This was
of course satisfactory; but just as the party was
ready to depart, an under servant from the palace
appeared at the consulate, bringing a message
from the Marshal, to the effect, that the Ameri
can party would he received according to appoint
ment, but that the Consul was not to accompany
them. This message was delivered to the Ameri
cans as they were stepping into their carriage.—
A moment sufficed for determination—the car
riage was discharged, court dresses cast aside, and
her Majesty of Greece was left to the undisturb
ed enjoyment of her own state chamber for that
evening. Later in the evening a messenger ar
rived from the palace to inquire at the consulate
why the American party had not presented them
selves, and stating that the Queen had waited
nearly an hour for them; but the absence of
the consul prevented an answer being giv
en. The next day, M. Diomatari addressed a
note to the marshal, stating the reason why the
Americans had not presented themselves. It was
*possible for them to have done so, in the face
such an insult offered to their representative.
