Iy a letter to Messrs. Scott, White & Co., wo learn thnt a keel-boat, upon which the Arkansas No. 4' was putting a por tion of her freight in order to lighten herself off the bar upon which she was aground, sur.k on the 23J inst. She' was struck by the current of the river and before she could be straightened sunk nearly to the top of her cargo box, ' after drifting to a bar about fifty yards below, where it stuck. Some packages of goods were entirely lost and others damaged. The accident was unavoidable. The 'Arkansas No. 4' was aground fore and aft and was in great danger of being entirely lost, and hence she was obliged to put pari of her freight on to a keel in order to save herself. Since, the river has risen and sho will probably bo here to-night or to-morrow. , OCT We invite attention to our correspondence of this week; it will be found interesting. The anecdotes of 4 A,' which he gleaned from thoscenos of the lute Creek Grand Council, are very amus ing. Lc.ok them over Mr. Spirit, nnd see if York's tall son' cluimsany affinity with the Caddo Chief. . QSrTlio 'Clarksville Standard' (Texas) is risen ogam : altera nine wocks siumuer n r pwirod in a respectnblo imperial slieot, as u io put that lust foolscap edition to the blush. lour sleep, contemporary, has beon of great refreshment to enable you to wuke up and reappear so vigorousond comely dressed. Succoss to you. They are making a great pother in tho country about some name by which to designate these Urn- tod States. Some would have ' Aleghania.' others Frodonia.' others again 'Appalachiano. Tho mania for those Anias seems to have spread like Greek fire among certuin quidnuncs, nnd even men of learning and sense. For our part to change the Constitution in any whit is against our creed and would be esteemed by us an offeuce second to sacrilege. In, that sacred instrument these States are known as the 'United States of America,' and 'lis an honored name. Let then the name America never be given up, for 'tis a groat and proud one. OCT The 'London Times' comes out in a grnvo article and endeavors to demonstrate to its reuders that the United Stales is not uble to make and wage, war with Mexico actually unable ! Umph I but this is an astonishing declaration, nnd needs only the one comment, that either the 'Timos' regards its world-orowded ren Jers all as the most gullable of fools, or it is endeavoring, as the organ of the British ministry, to delude Mexico into war with us, under the lying pretext that wo are not able to cope with her, because, forsooth, our 'standing army' is limited to tho small number of 'JUUU men Do ye hear that, men of the Mississippi Valley Where are the thousands and tens of thousands ready, so soon as tho tocsin of war is sounded, to take up their march 'westward, ho for the rich- lands of California and tho 'halls of Montezuma? Let the war-cry but once ring from tho walls of tho United Slates Capitol, and the danger would be in too groat a numher rushing on to the strife upon the Mexican plains, a strife that would most nure'y result in our victory were even1 the debt laded England to 'lend a hand.' Some of tho Northern Journals are abusing our gallant state for the part it took in expressing its disapprobation of the conduct of Massachusetts towards South Carolina, and which it expressed in a series of resolutions despatched to tho former slate, wherein was declared that any agent coin-in" to this state to interfere with our laws in re gard to slaves and freo negroes, ho should be instantly and summarily driven out. These resolutions form an occasion for theso Journals to harp considerably upon the 4 repudiation ' as they already designate it of Arkansas. We would like to know if these Journals do not live in glass houses! We would like also to know if the Boston Atlas ' thinks its dictum can 4 disgrace ' Arkansas? It speaks of the 4 disgrace ' which a ' notice-'of these resolutions would bring upon the 4 authorities ' of Massachusetts, but does not the ' Atlas ' sometimes lie? We ask its cotempora ry, the 4 Boston Post, ' if that is not the fact oc casionally. 03 Gov. Butler has left the Creek Council and is again at his Agency. The National annual session of tho Council of Creeks commenced Monday last. 03" Wo loam that Gov." Yell with Maj. Don-elson arrived recently . in New Orleans from Texas, to which country tho Governor went with despatches." The information was accompanied with a report that they had descried a British 74 in tlm Gulf of Mexico. CCrNew Goods are pouring inour Merchants ' get quantities of excellent character each time tho river rises. Call and buy, you'll find good bargains. 60" Tho ablo and veteran Ritchie, so long known as editor of the 'Richmond Enquirer,' and so long the famous chnmpion of Democratic principles, measures and men, has commenced his labors as editor of tho 4 Semi-weekly Union' the old 'Clobu' of which we have received two numbers. It is ns much like the'Globe'nsit can be, and promises ft ir to mnintain its great nnd deserved farno. Blair's 4 Vale to his readers, who long liuve, week by week, chatted of d ings at Washington with him, or mingled in the fiVrce political affray, is a very feeling one. Wo tru t his days may pass in peace under the shade of his Jaurels, ' (KrThe Democratic Review for May is before us, nnd forms a gem of a literary constollntion unsurpassed by any Magazine either on this or the other siclo of tho Atlantic. We extract this week the 'Young American' by A. II. Everett, Esq., nnd purpose setting before our readeisim interesting paper upon the 'Mexican Question.' 03r Joseo E. Dow, Esq., has taker, tho 4Madi-soman' nrxl changed its name to tin' 'United Statos Journal.' Hi paper, tho first number of which we have received, contains an unuatml quantum of interesting matter. OCrBy informants directly from Texas we learn that the 'Annexation meetings' are enthusiastically attended; the proportion in favor of Annexation throughout Texas siands about forty to one. The only effect President Jones, and the 'National Register's opposition was to collect the people in favor en masse and cnll the session of the Texan Congress three we-ks earli r, to receive the 'Resolutions.' Tho Congress commenced its deliberations last Monday. Another gentleman informod us that he hnd heard Gen. Mercer of Va., say that Cupt. Elliot, of Her Majesty's Navy,-would submit propositions from Moxico to Texas, that she wr uld guaronteo to tho latter her unconditional recognition of Texan independence provided Texas would reject the Annexation Resolutions, and if that should fail, Gen. Mercer understood from re port which was current at Galveston, that the British Government would offer to Texas douceur of $500,000 to be paid in 15 years, if the Texa.ns would maintain n separato independence and form-irg an alliance of commerce with England, should reject the Resolutions of tho United Statos Congress. But to this temptation, if indeed it can be called such, the Texans give no heed. The universal and ardent desire with them is Annexation. So the instructed British schemer, Capt. Elliot, will fail in his negotiations with Texas, and will not have the consolation of knowing that, like the Chinese, if they choose to scorn his propositions ho can force them to do so with Her Majesty's men-of-war. Col. George VV, Clarke, former editor of tho Arkansas Intelligencer, haf disposed of it to Messrs. Washbourne &i l ryor. If they make it as interesting a newspapoi as did Col. Clarke, they richly deserve success. Pic. Thank you, sir. We'll do thnt same. A correspondent of the 'Arkansas Banner,' holds the following just opinion of Col. Ashlev: "It is well known that Col. Ashley, has taken a position in the Senate, second to no new mombor, from any State in the Unoin. In fact his talents and ability, have enabled him to take that rank, the first session of his attendance upon his duties in thatnugust ho ly, that others have acquired, by long and laborious etlorts. It isgenorally conceded that his sM'eeh on the T xis question, was equal to any made on that subject in the Senate chamber, and he has done himsrlf and constituents justico in fully realizing tho high expectations of the Democratic party, in tMilocting him as thn successor of the lamented Fulton, and ho will no doubt sustain the high character, acquired for our Stato, by iIiosh whom wo have horetofore had the good for tune to select as public servants, in tho national councils. Corresponded e of the Arkansas Intelligencer- GRAND COUNCIL GROUND. Cheek Nation, May 15th, 1845. Messrs. Editors: The Council is in full blast, every thing is in full tide of motion. Tho following tribes are represented ns follows i Muscogeos 730 in number, Seminoles 52, Chick-nsaws 13iCh()ctaws 11, Shawnoes 6. nela wares 1. Piankishawsl, Osage 12, Kickapoos 4, Quapaws n. Portias 3. Caddoes 8. : . ' Gov.. Butler and Col. Logan, U. S. Agents for theX'horokces and Creeks, are in attendance, with Lietit. Flint, U. S. A. A number of spectators from the surrounding country are also proscnt. Speaking, smoking, slumbering and embracing, is tlio order. 1 no nnuiior me ivmscogees ia immune hands; of the Osnges to grasp as high as the elbow; of the Caddoes to embrace with an old fashioned country hug. Quite an amusing scene took place to-dav while the ceremony of embracing was go- inn on bntwixt the Osasres and Caddoes. One of the Osage who is a " doctor " and is said to be invulnerablo to all poisonous animals or insects, (ho at least showed himself indifferent to thorn.) iad besides thn usual ornamental emuemsnmenis nf naintincr etc.. n aited in his hair a linns snake about one foot long, fastened by the middle of its body leaving tho extremities to move at will This man s head was the cynosure ot the crowd .. . . ..I ,-!. who gazed with curious eyes at tno snaho in us plays fust about tho man's forehead nnd then his' neck, to tho entire Indifference of the Osage doctor. At length tho ceremony of 'hugging commonced, but the Osage was so much tailor than most of his embracers, that the snake did not interfere with the ceremony until tho ''doctor' encountered a 'tall son of York' a stalwart Cad do Chief; as their heads came in contact, Mr Snako presented tho graceful bow of his neck It the astonishment dnd utter confusion of his co- hugger, who drew back exclaiming Booh! and has, I fear, for a season put an end to this, timo-honored custom of his race. Now, Mr. Editors, I almost hear you say "quit your snake story and proceed" (wo say no such thing ol all. EDS.) Weill will do so. I uck-a-baichio-mico is the detailed speaker ol tho Muscogees. tho .War Chief who 44 talks ' by "authority e is a sensible speaker, but neither graceful as an orator nof line locking as a war rior. At the ris' of boilig thought light upon a grave subject, I give an anecdoto of this Chief which I cannot withhold, lie is a great favorite of the fair sex, has. 'lis said, no less than four wives; it is moreover said to be one of the retained traditions of tho females of his tribe, that whoever of tho wives can dash unobsorved the last pail of cold water upon her husband, he will suivly love her last and best. 'Ti e conse quence is this fortunate husband is kept in a constant nttitude of dodging ; four wives upon the lookout all the time to dolugtf him ; laughing he generally retires from their exertions unwot. This spokesman Chief repeatfd to the Council the "talks" sent by thoir three Northern brothers through the wampum the "Chipeways," the "Minomenees' and "Ottaways" which was exceedingly interesting. The " Great Spirit " has blessed these people with a memory which is almost incredibly retentive. The Chief of each tribo, 'tis said, will give a "talk" before they depart. This will be looked for with great interest. Of nil the tribes present the Seminoles are tho finest and t!io most striking and handsome men. Thepsnges are the most natural, and, if you will excuse mo, the most democratic. The grand levee of the season came off Monday night; the Osoges opened the ball with great eclat ; the Creeks ai d Del a wares followed, dancing round the fire with moderato lifo ; nt length the " terrapin shells" were heard to commingle their music in the ring. These sh- lls are worn only by the women, and their effect was electric; the dance revived quickly, unobserved tho dancers "just dropped in" one by one, producing an effect thnt was felt upon tho by -slanders. To a late hour this favorite amusement was kept up. For the present adieu, A. wu a pi onlv eot in tho day' of adjourn- ment; ho was very quiet, and has boeii for woeks very ill It is feared by many of tho friend of the Sam-inoles, that so soon ns tho Crooks rocoivo official infoi motion that the I no tro.ily has boon ratified, lhat they will have exton ljJ to tliom thn Anaconda Embrace, in which case many of them, will be for boating a retreat. All have departed and tho camp is quiet. v i.v- A 4 , Yours Etc., Creek Nation, May 17th, 1815. Messrs. Editors: The show is over all nd-joumed yesterday evening and are this morning departing in a hurry. Tho change and manner of these people re apparent in and out of council. While thero the) arc grave and dignified when out easy and facetious. They were observed during tho sitting of this council no noiso or drinking while in solemn conclavo. Bui the momont after adjournment the sceno shifts; then commences tho'all night whooping, hallooin", full and bottles empty I All the "heads or departments ' (each tribe) made spoechos through their chief, to bo reported iu detail would you like n copy 1 (We would relish a copy of these speeches very much. eds.) all concurring in the object of this council; to clear the paih and mako all white where it had been spotted and darkened with blood, and lo extend tho " whito path " fir away over tho wido stretch of the prairies to the very doors of th' ir brothers, the " Comanches " and "Pawnor Ma-haws," a blessing of light tlmy IkkI nover yet enjoyed an exertion of friendship which would gieatly cement their amity, etc. The usual "token" a plug of tobacco was preparod, attached to which wore while beads: A dojiutation of the Caddoes bore t'io first and of Psages tho latter. Should a favorable answer bo returned to thes friendly manifest itioris of the Crooks by tho Comanches and Pawnee Mahaws, it is contemplated by the King of iho Muscogees to call another much more grand and extensive affair, at tho Great Salt Plains during the Summer or Fall. No other material event look placo not noticed. Some of theso sons of tho forost aie slrikin" in their appearance, manner and demeanor fine specimens of native men. Gen. Mcintosh, Chief of tho Muscogees, is tho best of inon; plain, dignified nnd just in an eminent degreo. Tho ("at'do Chief is a man of remarkable beau-ty, his features evincing a high degree of intolloct and an ardent spirit, lie made a very sensible speech. ' Black Dog, the Osngo Chlof, "is some Punkins," a man of groat stature uboul sovuii foot powerful frame, with a voice attractivo nnd commanding. Ho spoko about fivo and a half minutos to this rfleet: "Broihors, your talk is gooJ, but your beef is better " He and each of his p,uty consumed the first four days twelve nounds of boof, failing then to eight which rato they maintained throughout tho time they reniaitiod. IIunt9V1lU, Madison County Ark., ) May 12. 1815. $ Messrs. Editors: havo now been travel-in in vour upner counties forming tho rich back country, about which tho "Arkansas Intelligen cer," once made so groat a parade, several weeis. 1 have been a pretty strict observer and 1 now scarcoly know whether to praiso or condemn to speak encouragingly or discourngmgly to those who desiroa healthful region forn location. The natives made short crops last year, and corn for travelers isscarco, bearing tho high price of forty cents por pushol I This is considered a ereat hardship by those who havo to buy, not withstanding many of thorn may have given a dollar per bushel in thoir dear "nativo lands." Bacon is also unusually scarce so much so that a good farmer in this neighborhood considers it a trreat hardship to find about half his supply ab stracted in ono night. The whole neighborhood sympathised with him, and the poor devil who bor rowed it from sheer necessity is now a candidato for the vacancy from this county caused by tho Executive clemency of Gov. Adams, A good deal may be said in favor of the morals of these "upper diggings," only about seventy-fivo indictments having been prcfered at tho present riding in the counties of Newton, Marion and Carroll. 1 Ins is a hue held lor criminal Law-yors of rare talents, and it is only oocupiod by few. The inhabitants also show a high value for character, as every calendar iscrowdod with slander suits. 1 do not rolato these things by way of disparagement, but ns an evidence that grand jurors do thoir Quty nnd tho community set a high value upon reputation. Much has been done by tho revival preachers, and in many neighborhoods you will find one half the inhabitants holonging to somo of the churches. Tho reformations in somo instances have been of those who had bocnTnny thing but promising christians. There also appears to be more evidence of in dustry and perseverance among the farmers than could bo found some years ngo. Still there is no concentration upon any article of export any thing which can promise pcrmanenco and wealth The whole back country is susceptible of grow ing wheat, cotton or tobacco; but until thero is a concentration upon the one or the other of those as a staple tho inhabitants here cannot promise themselves wealth nor can your merchants hopo to build up n city. This back country is capable of supporting a population, which would very soon make Van Huron a great commercial point. But the whole country is yet in its infancy and laboring under great disadvantages. Good schools are very scarce nnd tho settlements often loo sparco and the inhabitants too poor to employ a teacher. Tho intercommunication by mail is wretchedly deficient, nnd the circulation of newspapers is small indeod. Somo neighborhoods, it is true, are overcoming every difficulty nnd have established excellent schools in some of tho counties but theso are few and far betwoen. Now in order to secure the permanent prosperity of the country you men of the press have a great task to porform. You havo first lo obtain n very general circulation for jour papers; to do which desirablo thing two requisites nro necessary, begot a genoral lasto for roading, nnd morn extensive mail fncilit s. Then unfold the advantages of the more profitable production, nnd inspirean universal spirit of industry. Unfold the many inducements to capitalists to coiio to these rogions and engage in ngriculturo and mnnulactuios nnd last, though not least, level ono half the mountains nnd thus fill up half tho valloys. All this you will any tan Herculean task but recollect that yon aro young and full of energy, and application it is sail can remove mountains. Those who really desire tho prosperity of Van Bured will no doubt join you in tho noble enterprise, and North Western Arkansas may yet become a great country. I havo already run out theso remarks to too gnat length. VERITAS.
