1 DAILY FITTSBURCUI GAZETTE. FRIDAY Aftct-noou, 1835 U. S. Gazette. This paper, which we constd. er to be always well conducted, except when its editor travel out of the record to assail us, ia a full blooded whig paper probably we should say a quarter over. VVe toke the following extract, from a letter of Us intelligent correspondent, at Wash-ington showing his opinion as to the true policy of the Whigs of Pennsylvania: Washington, Juno 12, 183.1. "Iftho people of Pennsylvania coald hear the sneering tone and manner adopted towards them bv the friends of Mr. Van Buren, they would nc- vef permit themselves to be made instruments for the furtherance of the success of the ticket which lioars his name at his head. The Van Burcnitea in this quarter are amusing themselves with look ing on. while the two sections of the party in Penn- avlvania arc tearing each other to pieces, and seem to derive much the same gratification from the sDort. as is enioved bv the spectator at a Span ish bull fight, or, as wc presume, may have been obtained by those of bygone ages, whose taste led them to patronize gladiatorial exhibitions. Whetu er the key stone state will be contented with cx citing this kind of admiration, and will continue to act in subservience to a party which has no feel- inif in common with tier, but which insims wniie it uses her, remains to be seen. We in tint auar ter. think that we tee a ttreak of cheerful light he neath the clouds, now that the Whist of the state have come out for Uitnerat Governor. Ilia election would be a death blow to Van Burenism there, and as he is tho favorite candidate of a large nor lion of those citizens who are not always to be found in the ranks of the Whigs, there seems to be a reasonable prospect that tho union which is taking place, will secure his election. The Pcnnsyivanian wUhes to make its country readers to believe, that the friends ot lov. won are alarmed, in consequence of the Town Meeting on Wednesday last, and that they have proposed that both Mr. Wolf and Mr. Muhlenberg ihould be dropped, and a third man be nominated. There is no truth in cither of these assertions. The friend of Gov. Wolf were entirely satisfied With the strength exhibited at the Tow n Mooting; and as for dropping Gov. Wolf, such a thing was never thought of, so far as we have hoard. That such a proposition was made at the time of tho Fourth of March convention, by tho friends of the ftev. Mr. Atulilcnbcrjf is known to many persons. It was, however, promptly rejected by the friends of Gov. Wolf, who did not think they had any fight to do so, and who were convinced, that Gov. Wolf was decidedly the strongest candidate that coqlc! be named in the state. American Sentinel. A short time agO.tho democratic party in Pennsylvania was in a high state of fermentation. At present it is becoming calm and collected. The signs how indicate a "good turn out" and pure. True to herself, the republican party will unite her strength in the great work of sustaining her priii-oiulos. If victory crown the effort this time, her footing will be firm and immovable for years to come. Should she bo vanquished, time can only tell her future destiny. Let every man reflect and examine for himself; and he will see tho propriety of rallying around tho old and truo standard dur ing the approaching contest. One more victory and all will be secure. Westmoreland lirp. Mr. Webster The editor of the Washing ton Telegraph havinjr insinuated, if not said, that Daniel Webster would throw ins weigni inio me VanBuren scale, tho editor of the Boston Atlas responds with much warmth: In the course of his remarks he says "liau ivir. weusier ever shown himself capable of changing or truckling, ever before bowed the head or bent the knee, had he ever spoken a word the less or the softer, lowered hi voice or qualified a sentence to please those in power, if when young and unknown he had courted the great, or timid to suit the limes, there might have been some color of an excuse for this attack on the Telegraph. But that at this period of a life faithfully spent in laboring for his country, after having fought so long'for the good cause, through adversity and proa parity, 'midst foes outnumbering his friends, without flinching at the hardest onset, or yielding to the most tempting allurements, ever first at the fray and last at the feast; while all his honors won during a long service are yet fresh and bright, not a leaf faded in his chaplet, and just when he is elevated to be the representative of the cause of which he has so long been the defender, that now he should filter and desert! It "stands not within the com ass of belief." An Editor's Life. Reader! you know hut very little about tho lifb of an editor; and it is not worth while to try to tell you what sort of a life he leads. Paper, ink and types cannot describe it. Pencil and paint may be essayed in vain. To know how an editor lives you must become an editor. But we say to you, as wc have said to almost every one who has ever thought it worth while to advise with as upon tho subject don't try it we be seech you. Stick to the lapstonc, tho shears, the sledge, the handsaw, tho plough, tho pestle, or even be a lawyer and whistle for a client, and you may chance to "go ahead;" but as you value quiet and consistency, as you wish to have comfort by day, and rest by night, don't be an editor. Do you ask why? Just think for a moment, what an editor must do, and what lie must not do; and your question will ho answered. lie must publish all the news; and he must not publish any thing that is not founded on fact. lie must endeavor to raise the standard of public morals, but he must not attack any vice, or error, or infirmity, to which any of his patrons or friends ace subject. lie must write, whether he ia gloomy or gladsome; sick or well; whether the mercury runs high er low; whether political prospects are fair or foul; nl ill write he must, and he must produce some, thing that is pretty or popular, or he is deemed a Stupid fellow. Ho must print wliatevor ia sent or handed to him for insertion, whether he can read it or not, let his space be little or much, at tho vry time, and in the very manner that ho is requcste'd. He must remember and daily execute all orders, verbal or written, that his kind patrons are so obliging as to promulgate. lie mus bo literally "all things to all men," and try to plcaso every body, or he must "take the responsibility" of acting upon principle; pursue an independent course, labor to uphold the rights and liberitcs, and improve the morals of his country; determined to do nonesi at tho worst of times; writo like a freeman, and toil like a ulave: wear out his press and types, and finally him- self, and leave to his children, if he can keep one, and accumulate the other a good name and a file of od papers. Westchester Herald. The Jackson papers in Virginia, are with great unanimity taking decided ground against the nomination of Col. Johnson as a candidate for tho Vice Presidency. The Winchester Virginian, a leading Van Buren paper, says: "We consider it aa a settled question that no ticket of electors favorable to theelection of Col. Johnson will bo run in this state." From the American Magazine The Frenchman's Story is one of thrilling in terest, and admirably told. It is of the Revolu tion and its honors. One passape will speak for the rest. The scene is the Place dt Grete, where the guillotine was erected in permanence, with a wagon load oi human beings about to be massacred: "Among these, the most remarkable was avene- rable old man, whose bent figure, thin white hair, high wrinkled forehead, and withered complexion, bespoke the extremity of age, yet his manner was nrm,and he never f orgot tor a moment the calm propriety of his demeanor. By his side stood a woman, now no longer young, bat retaining much of the beauty, and all the dignified elegance of earlier days, She stood erect, and supported without effort the arm of the old man, who leaned heavily on hers. The other hand rested on the necK of a fair young girl a mere child not apparently more than ten years old, whose tear swollen eyes were fixed on her mother's fuce with the sad and touching melancholy of childish grief. They spoke not much together: once, as the wagon stopped near where I stood, I heard the old man murmur some words of patience and encouragement to his companion as he spoke, she turned her eye towards the child she gazed on that fair yoong face, and all a mother's love beamed in her eye. The trial was almost too great for her; her lip quivered; her face grew more deadly pale; but, in a moment, by a strong effort, she banished from hor look every appearance of weakness. She raised her eyes to heaven; her lips moved; and then, as if her prayer for fortitude had been instantly answered, she turned a bright and smiling look on the little innocent; smoothed back the curling hair that clustered round her lovely fore head, and the mother imprinted one long kiss on the brow of her child. The wagon passed on.and I inquired the name of the victims whose appearance had so strongly interested me. It was MalloBherbcs the honest and able minister; the undaunted advocate; the kind and true friend of Louis Capet accompanied by his daughter, the Marchioness of Rocambo, and her child he was about to die on the scaffold. But the child! Sure ly they would not murder tho child? And why Hull A Ilv UIU lliUfl Dvl liiiv nan um isnv..--i w purity of character how, then, could the child cscapef The wagon was drawn up beside me guillotine, and all was soon ready for the first execution. Malleshcrbca stood nearest the steps, and he was about todescend, when a savage voice cried out, M The child first!" The old man would have remonstrated, but his daughter checked him 'Tis but a moment, my father," said she, tis but a moment" she raised the child in her arms. and herself handed it to tho executioner. I he little creature, frightened by the savage looks of the man, screamed out, "Don't leave me, mother come with me don't leave me." "I will not leave you, my child 1 teill be with you in a mo. ment.n The child was pacified, and the mother turned towards her aged parent, ond buried her (ace in his neck: he. too. bent forward till his white hair flowed over her shoulders. Thus they saw nothing yet they wore so near they must have heard the jerk of the strnig that loosed tho ponderous axe its clatter as it foil. A strong shudder nhook the frame of the mother; but when the executioner called out, "Now for the woman," she raised her placid face from her father's neck looked fondly in his face kissed his cheek "For a brief moment, farewell, my father." She stepped with a light firm tread upon the wagon mounted the scaffold and in a moment she teas with her child. Mallcsherbes came nexf; he had summoned all his energies for this last scene in his life's drama, and he played it nobly. Never in the proudest days of his power had tho minister looked or moved with a loftier dtgnily. With a wave of the hand, he repulsed the advances of one of the guard, who would have assisted his descent from the wagon. Self sustained, in body as in mind, he advanced slowly to the scaffold even the fiends who surrounded it were awed they shrunk back, and allowed the old man to place himself, almost unassisted, on the platform. They would have bound him, but he gave a forbidding look it was enough the executioner retired the plank was pushed forward, and for a moment the old man must have seen, in the basket below, the heads of his children. This addit ional pang, if it was one, was short; the executioner jerked tho 6tring, and all was over. Original Anecdote of Burns. The following anecdote, which is current in the counties of Galloway and Dumfriesshire, has never yet appeared in print, though remarkably characteristic of the temper and extraordinary powers of ready sarcasm, possessed by this illustrious bard. Whilst occupied with his duties as an exciseman, the routine of business brought Burns to the village of Newton Stewart. To this solitary place, came on a Saturday night, a commercial traveler in the button line, from Birmingham, ycleped Andrew Turner. Andrew was of that species of the genus tra-vcler, which dclightcth in the new born splendor of a horse and chaise, a whip with a handle of ivory, and a box coat, with some quarter of a ton of capes. It was about nine o'clock when this hero arrived at the inn at Newton Stewart, and not having a aingie customer in tho place, ho proceeded to discuss a good supper, with the proper quantity of the mountain dew, which falls in re-mackaWe purity in that district of Scotland. Then, in order to rest his horse, and not to overrun his customers at the next town, it became the duty of Andrew to remain the following day the grim sabbath of Scotland, at this solitary place. He foresaw that time would hang heavy on Ins hands, and so said to tho landlord, "is there nobody here that's fit company for a Christian? I shall be lost all day to morrow at this infernal hole. Tell mo of somebody that ono can invite here for a lit. tie amusement." "Ay what let mc see," said tho landlord, "there's 't exciseman, ycleped Rab- by Burns, he's a great poet, on awfu' clever fel-low, I'se a sen him in till you, he likes a drap toddy wccl." Soon was a messenger dispatched for the exciseman; and Burns, never loath for a good jollification, enters the parlour of the inn. Rising from his scat, with both hands in his pockets, and his whole front monarchical in the extreme "Oh! oh!" said Andrew, "You are the poet that the landlord has been telling me about. Now who would expect to find a poet in such a place as this? Well, come sit down, and let us see what you've got to say for yourself! A poet, are you? well, come, let us have some of your poetry something original now." "On what subject?" inquired Burns. "Oh! any subject," said Andrew, "make a poem about me." "Then I must know your name first" "Andrew Turner is my name." "Well then When first the world waa made. Some guts and hoofs were left, And these were flung into a corner; l o use them up it was assayed. When lo! of brains and soul bereft.

From anew publication called the Alchy. mist. A son of Mr. O'Conneli having fought a duel frr his father with Lord Alvanley, Mr. D'lsraeh called upon the son to continue the "vicarious du-ty," and give him satisfaction for a scurrilous at-tack made upon him in u recent speech by O'Con-n11 Mr Mnrtran O'Conneli, the son, in reply to D'Israeli's note, denies the right to call on him, and says that he is not answerable for what his father may say. Hereupon D Israeli urr-.ii.. n abusive letter to O'Conneli, senior, ond the next day informs the son that he has done so, Kn.,, he inferred from his last note that although ni rMnonsible for insults offered by his father, he fi.U hound to resent those offered to him. "Now, ir " writes D'Israeli, "I think I have insulted him; assuredly it was my intention to do so." Morgan O ConneU, nevertheless, declines meeiing him. Daniel O'Conneli having formerly killed a man in a duel, made a Vow never to fight another TVIaraeli's letter to him. extracted at length from the London Courier and Enquirer, is very sharp and ends thus: "With regard to your taunt as to my want of success in my election contests, permit me to remind you that I had nothing to appeal to but the good sense of tho people. No threatening skeletons canvassed tor mc; a death's-head and cross, bones were not blazoned on my banners. My pecuniary resources, loo, were limited; I am not one of those public beggars that we see swarming with their obtrusive boxes in the chapels of your creed, nor am I in possession of a princely revenue wrung from a starving race of fanatical slaves. Never-thelcss, I have a deep conviction that the hour is at hand when I aliall be more successful, and take my place in that proud assembly of which Mr. O'Conneli avows his wish no longer to be a member. I expect to be a representative of the people before the repeal of the union. We shall meet at Phillippi; and rest asured that, confident in a good cause, and in some energies which have been not altogether unimproved, I will sicze the first opportunity of inflicting upon von a castigation which will make you ot the same time remember and repent the insults that you have lavished upon BENJAMIN D'ISRAELI. FROM CHINA Wc have received, by the Ship Gerard, a file of the Canton Register, to the 27th January, incfu sive. The annexed extracts, contain all matters of interest wc find in them. We are happy to announce that the first step has been taken towards establishing, in China, a Hospital for Seamen. The benevolent intention of founding this much wanted and most useful in stitution, has long been cherished by many of the foreign residents in Canton. Whether it can .be made as comprehensive in its effects as the first .'"'"''? heaman s Hospital, the IJrcadnought, in the Thames, cannot yet bo known; but we trust the day may come when the Shiouy-show jin, (i e. water-hand men,) Seamen of China shall he ad initted into its side bays on an equality with the Seamen of nil other nations: their hrmy-hands be- mar their only and best testimonial. We mention with honor the liberality of the Parsee Merchants in Canton in their subscriptions to the first foundation; and, as they arc an impor tant part of the shipping' interest of India, there is no doubt that respectable body will continue to be among the foremost of tho supporters of this ex cellent chanty, Release of IIiNG-TAE.-TIing-tac, the hong mer chant, who was seized and imprisoned by the lo cal authorities in August last, was released on the 21st instant. On this cruel net of shameful op prcssion. Lord Napier remarked in the following words: "And I will also report to his (the Em peror, Taou-K wang) justice and indignation, the false and treacherous conduct ol Governor Lcc and that of the present Kwang-ehow-foo, who has tortured the linguists, and eru II y imprisoned respectable individual, rvinslnng (lling-tae) a sc curily merchant, for not having acquiesced in a base lie, purporting that I arrived in Canton river in n Merchant Ship, whereas, they are both aware that I made my passage nnd arrived in one of the Ships of War, now at nnohor in the river." (Vide Lord Napier's letter lo the Secretary of tho Mer chants' Meeting, Sept. 8th, 1831, Register No. 37 Vol. 7.) Tho foregoing extract is, nt once, the condem nation of the Local Government and the eulogium oflling-tnc: he would not acquiesce in a base lie! and he was deemed contumacious and im prisoned! How ho has lecn treated, and what ef forts have been made to terrify him, wc have not heard; but we may probably sav more on this sub ject in a future number. N. I. Com. Adv. "The Devil can't draw it." Wlinn Irvin was at Abbotsford. Scott spoke of the Scottis character. Ho evidenced the quiet, orderly, and peaceable conduct of his neighbors, but thought this might ho regarded as rather singular in those who had descended from borderer and troopers lamed in olden time lor their quarrels nnd section al difficulties. But this spirit, he said waa not en tirefy deml it was lulled to sloep, and could b easily aroused. Sometimes, indeed, it woul break forth, from some temporary cause shak its mane, and become again hashed in its slum bers. He gave an anecdote in point. A brother of Mungn Park went into a wild neighborhood o the Highlands, and took up his abode; it was not lonjr before the conduct of the people about him plainly indicated (lint they looked upon him as a intruder in the Highlands. They took every oc oasion to fling at him nnd taunt him.' He bore their jests and jeers patiently, for a long time. At length, presuming upon his forbearance, one of them drew a dirk, ami brandishing it in the front of Park, asked him if they had any weapons of that sort in tho country he came from? Park, who was a Hercules in frame, seized tha dirk and drove it with a mighty blow through an oaken table "Yes," said he, "and tell yoar friends, that a man from the lowland drove it where the devil himself cannot draw it out again." Those who witnessed the foal and listened to the words that accompanied it, were delighted with both they drank with Park to better acquaintance, and drew no more dirks afterwards. 9. From Cochrane's Foreign Quarterly Review the editor of Littell's Museum extracts an interesting notico of the celebrated German Physiologist Wolff celebrated for his startling theory as lo the Homeric Poems, supported by such a vast array of learning, such acutenoss of reasoning and wit as to have, created and preserved to this day, a strong1 party in its favor among classical scholars. His great countryman, Goethe, apostrophizes him in one of his finest poems as the man who 'at last boldly frecingus from the namo of Homer summons us too to a fuller career.' The leading propositions which he attempts to establish, by arguments drawn from internal as well as external sources, are, 1. That writing was utterly unknown to tho Greeks at the time, and that the poems of Homer were merely preserved by memory and tradition; Q. That tho Iliad and Odyssey are not the work of one author, hut that thn (nrmir ia at lvot n Mnlnrn nMnr lli.n the latter; and, 3. that neither the one nor the other is the work of a single poet, but that both I miioim ui a oci iu in i uapuuictl, llic ui tin- ferent poets, which, at a later period, not earlier than the time of the Fisistratidoe' were devotailed, as it were, into each other and formed into a whole. The announcement of course of these views maintained as they were by extensive and pro-found erudition, brought tho bear with great in- genaity, set the learned world alt agog, and start- cd a controversy which is noi yn ...u probably, to the comfort of the polemical, never; will he.

An opinion of no small impor tance, if correct, was stated by Dr. Gregory, be fore the London College of Physicians, on Mon day, the 27th of April, in the course ot an essay which he then read, on the mutual relation Be tween the vaccine and small pox virus. He con- sidcred the vaccine lymph to have lost much of its ,-irtue from havinff passed through the systems ot . - . . .. too many persons, thirty five years having elapsed since matter was obtained direct from the cow, for lb nor nose of vaccination He was led to this conclusion by the prevalence of small pox at this time in England, and the number of established cases in which tho disease had been taken by per sons who had been vaccinated. He thought it in dispensable, to ensure the proper effect to this pre- ventative process, that fresh matter should bo ob tained from its original source. Virginia Gold Mines. The following account of the principal gold mines in Virginia, is publish- "The United States mine, the Milbank, Union, and Rappahannock, constitute- the most noted mines in the State. Up to the autli ot April, lo-tJ, no regular business has been attempted al these " . a a t . mines, nor has there been any expenditure be yond what prudene.e would dictate for ascertain- inr their value. The result of which expenditure ..... a a a . has established confidence, and at all the mines above named, measures have been taken to erect machinery for permanent mining operations. The Rappahannock mine, under the superinten dence of Professor John Milliniton. was the first put in operation the present season. The ma chine (by steam power) was erected during a most rigorous winter and spring, and commenced bu- . r-.a s a i wvt a siness about tne zuui ot yprn. uign expecta tions were entertained of the product of this mine, as well as of the machinery recommended and adopted by Mr. Millington. As the first object at this mine was to test tho value of theorc and machinery, the operations have been conducted, we understand, by a limited supply of water, obtained from a shaft, by which the machinery is frequently retarded in its progress. The result of the operations, however, has been of the most'satisfac- torv kind. The mill has finished at the rate of 1;0 bushels of ore per day, of21 hours; producing an ounce of gold, per hour as an average of alt its work. The machinery at the United Stales mine (by water power) is being completed upon a much lar- ger scale of operation than at the Rappahannock mine; and is expected to Ikj in full operation in ten days. At the Union mine, it is said that more than 100 hands have been for some time engaged, at which mine British capital is principally employ, ed. Three large steam engines, we are informed, arc to constitute the power at this mine. The Milbank Company, though not so forward in their operations, arc making preparations for business. Thus, instead of the mines having been abandoned, the prospect brightens in their favor beyond any thing that has heretofore existed. The New York Herald, a paper which is so small that wo ore constantly afraid of losing it among its huge "cotcmporaries," and so good thai we should much regret tho loss, gives some statistical details of the City of New York, "carefully collected from tho best and most occurate au-thorities." The population of the city in 1C!)7, wns only. 4,302: one hundred years later, it was 35,000: in 1816, it was 100,000: and in 1830, it was 200,000, having doubled in fourteen years. The city, with all its suburbs, in which are most arrogantly included Patcrson ond Newark, contains now, it is believed, nearly 300,000 persons. We shall be able to make an exhibit, some of these days, of Baltimore population statistics, that will beat the ubovc u figure or two. Halt. Amer. Columbia, Pa. June 13. We yesterday saw in front of our office a beautiful lot of liar Iron, which was manufactured nt Victoria Iron Works, Dauphin County, by Franklin E. Wright, & Co. from ore found near this place. Th t ore wns taken from the mine and transported sixteen miles above llarrisbu:g and returned here in eight days time. In mentioning this fact, wo wish also to state, that previous to the completion of the public works, there was no inducement to dig the ore in this township, of which there is an inexhaustible supply. Now, we understand, six furnaces are supplied with it, and not less than fifty tons are daily weighed in our sight. In this can be seen a striking benefit derived from internal improvements, and. as wat remarked to us, an illustration of the fact, that "canals make their work." The ore is of superior quality, yielding above C5 per cent.- Spy.

It was a large vessel, under a press of canvas, apparently sailing in the air at an elevation of not less than a hundred feet from the water, directly across the mouth of our harbor. Knowing, however, how to account for it on natural principles, it filled our mind only with delight. The sun was shining very brightly at the time the image of the vessel reflected in the mist ubovc her, was perfect, and as she passed swiftly by, coursing through the air "like a thing of life," we thought it one of the moHt beautiful "pictures" we ever beheld.
