A quorum has at last been assembled at Quere

question arc various and conflicting.
The following is extracted from a letter dated
Queretaro, April 27th, at 11 o'clock at night :
"The people arc becoming weary with sufrering
the oppression and sport of petty tyranny. This,
at least, is the case with the Mexicans, and by the
omnipotent exercise of will, discarding what is
called the General Government of the Nation, es.
tablished at. Queretaro, it has prostrated to the
earth its treacherous oppressors.
" At 9 o'clock on the night of this day, without
any resistance, it proclaimed the only plan which,
in the present circumstances, can save the coun
try, viz: 'war, and war without truce or quarter,
until an honorable peace is conquered.
"Such is the programme of this happy revolu.
tion, at the head of which are the distinguished
Generals Almonte, 13ustamente and Paredes., to
whose voice all who arc Mexicans rather than par.
tisane, will respond. The tocsin of liberty has
sounded at last. Sons of Hidalgo and Iturbido
awake! The invincible hand of Providence points
out to you the road by which every portion of the
globe will occupy its true place. Mexicans fulfil
your destiny !"
American deserters arc continually arriving at
Queretaro. During the last three days twenty
presented themselves to the Mexican government,
and were incorporated in the San Patricio com

89.0 men of all arms.

made public, the design to lay the corner-stone of
the National Washington Monument, on the 4th
of July next; and the undersigned have been ap.

appeals; directly to the patriotism and to the heart
of every American citizen. Throughout this wide
country, every one is, or ought to be, emulous to
unite in this lasting token of veneration ; which
is to aid in transmitting to posterity the memory
of him whose fame has spread throughout the
world, and whose name is made the watchword in
every struggle for liberty. We therefore deem it
expedient—looking to the concourse which will
assemble in this city—to learn by correspondence
as far as it is practicable, what can be done to ren

A military corps is invited from each State, so
as to form, when united, one great military and
civic procession. Washington was " first in war,
first in peace, and first in the hearts of his coun.
trymen." Combined with these, we propose to
form in the procession the masonic, odd.fellows',
firemen's, and temperance associations ; the vari
ous trades and pursuits, with proper devices and
banners. Literary and scientific associations are
invited to attend, together with the schools of the
District, under the care of their respective teachers.
The different State delegations, military corps,
societies, associations and schools are requested to
hand to the marshal a roll containing the name of
each person in attendance, to be recorded and per.
petuated as in other cases.
As the board of managers consider the fund
contributed by our liberal and patriotic fellow.eiti.

to be diverted and expended for any other object,
we can only promise the visitors on that day a
hearty welcome, good water, and beautiful grounds

Journal gives the following well.known devices in
hot climates and seasons :
The means in present use for artificial refrige.
ration are very various, some of them very into.
resting. Among these, the employment of porous
earthenware may receive an early place. The
Moors introduced into Spain this luxury, in the
shape of very elegant vases, wonderfully light and
porous. Water kept in these,' became rapidly
deliciously cool, and from some peculiarity in the
process of the manufacture of the vessels, it ac
quired, in addition, a very agreeable flavor. In
Egypt and in India, and in most sultry regions,
this expedient is at the present time a very preva
lent one. It has also for some time been eaten.
sively employed amongst ourselves—porous wine,
butter, and water coolers, of many elegant designs,
being now produced at our pottoriom. But porous
ware keeps water coolest where the clinic is hot
test, the very increment of heat being made to re.
act in the production of cold by rapid evaporation.
The Moorish names for their earthen jugs was Al
&mem, or B ucarros. The Arabs burnt up with
the eternal fire of their scorching country, make
use of goat skins for water vessels, which suffer a
little water slowly to exude, and thus keep the re.
maindcr comparatively cool. A common method
of cooling wines in India, is one which will almost
appear a paradox: the bottle is wrapped in flannel
wetted with water, and placed directly in the rays
of the sun; violent evaporation ensues, and the
wine actually becomes cold. It is a common plan,
too, for sailors, in warm latitudes to cover their
wine with cloths constantly wetted. Apartments
are cooled on a similar principle, and an abundance
of water is frequently dashed against the walls
with the most gratclut effect. In India, also the
cold, so dangerous and penetrating on a clear night,
is often applied in a peculiar manner for the par.
pose of freezing water. Near Calcutta, in an open
plain, there are large shallow excavations made in
the ground, and filled with straw; upon this many
rows of small, shallow porous pans, filled with wa.
ter, are placed atstinset. During the night ice forms
in thin cakes upon the surface of the pans ; it ix
carefully removed before sunrise, carried to a pro.
per repository, and pounded into a mass there, and
then covered over with blankets. This manacla
tore can only be pursued during the months of ' ,
December, January, and February ; and in the dia.
where the ice is formed in this manner, it is
never produced naturally. This ingenious process
must wholly disappear before the new import of
Wenham Lake ice. What a revolution has com
merce effected in India, when we remember that
early travellers in that country were looked upon as
liars and imposters for asserting the possibility of
solidifying water into ice!"
There is now no doubt that the crop both of
Maryland and Ohio, in 1848, will be less than an
average one. Since the stagnation in the Tobacco
market, caused by the political changes in Europe,
letters from different parts of the Tobacco growing
districts of Maryland have been received, express_
ing the determination of the planters to make less

of our commission merchants to their friends in

President decides that there was an unintentional
error of a material fact in the finding of the Court .

Pillow deserves censure, and. concurs with the
Court and Gen. Scott that there is nothing in the
case which requires further military proceedings.

Assured by several judicious friends that our
community is not apprized of the efforts of the
American Colonization Society, to extend the boon
of freedom to a multitude of slaves proffered grat
uitously to its care, we feel it en imperative duty
to state that no less than four expeditions are now
afloat, bearing nearly 500 emancipated emigrants
to Liberia. An equal number anxiously await our
ability to send them. To secure at once their free.
slum and settlement in the new Republic, we soli
cit the means of meeting the generous overtures
of some masters, and the bequests of others. This
may be effected at the small outlay of $5O for each
emigrant, the estimated expense of the voyage to,
and settlement in Liberia. Neatly two hundred of
the slaves to be liberated, are on one estate and must
be sent speedily to prevent the forfeiture of their
freedom. Collections in the several churches aro
therefore respectfully suggested. All other contri
butions will be gratefully received at the office, or

LAKE SUPARIOR IRO:..—The steamer Champion
arrived at Detroit, from Sant Saint Marie, on Satur
day week, bringing several bars of Lake Superior
Iron, manufactured at the Jackson Iron Company's
Works. The iron is pronounced by competent
judges to be of a very superior quality. 'rho bars
are hammered from the rough ore, and what is ex
traordinary, is so pure that it is ready fur use with
out further process. The agent who came down,
states that the texture of the iron is unusually fine,
and with a slight process can easily be converted
to the best article of cast steel. The present facili
ties for manufacturing arc two forges, capable of
turning out half a ton a day, but several companies
are erecting works on different locations for exten
sive operations the present season. The works arc
located eight miles from the Lake, on Carp river;
and the ore is found four miles above, ita inexhausti
ble quantities. The surface of the country is un
dulating and covered with heavy pine timber. The
ore is found in fragments on the surface and in
perpendicular cliffs from one to two hundred feet
in height.
St. Joseph's, Mo., is crowded with emigrants on
their route to California and Oregon. Two hun
dred and ten wagons had crossed the river at that
place. and forty or fifty at the ferry above St. Jo
seph's. The emigration this year will not be so
large as that of last year—probably not numbering
more than five hundred men. The Mormons arc
said to be crossing in large numbers at Council
Bluffs, and from 1500 to 2000 wagons aro expected
to leave in a few weeks for the Great Salt Lake.
Major Harris recently arrived at St. Joseph from
the front camp of the emigrants. They were all
getting on well, except the last. some 35 miles
from the town—this party was without a leader, at
a place distant from water, and nearly all of their
cattle lost—either driven off by Indians, or strayed
away in search of water. Major Harris is to go
out to California, iii company with Col. Fremont,
who was expected at St. Joseph by the 15th of
this month.
