It is a revenue law, in full Ibroe, and unaffected
by the Penal Code passed at %e ra session, The
repealing olauae of the Cods, afta enumerating a
great number of Acts, concludes, " together with

law relating to crimes and punishments, but a rev-

from a student in this institution, written at the
commencement on the first of March, saying—
" The scenery around Independence is beautiful
In the extreme. For two or three weeks alter en-
tering the University I was rather home-siok, as
most of the students were; but the disease has
now disappeared, and all are bappy as the happiest,
there hardly ever being a harsh word among them.
Most, if not all, of the young men show a kind
feeling toward each other and the teaohers, wbioh
must make the institution thrive beyond doubt-
one proof of which is, tí>at the sohool has now up-
wards of one hundred and fifty students, more than
ever before and still increasing."

The Huntsville Recorder says tluit Gen. Houston
will.suppórt Mr. Buchanan's administration as long
as the latter adheres to the principles of'his inau-
gural address. This' may be regarded as a pretty
clear endorsement of the present administration by
the old hero of San Jacinto. We have heard him
expresa himself to the fuíl extent set down by, the
Recorder, and have reason to believe that not only
the President, but the Cabinet, command his res-
and confidence, and will meet with no cap-
ous opposition at his hands. We bare it fh>m
hie authority that, during the late canvass,
. Houston always spoke of Mr. Buchanan in
ia of high respect and confidence.
Shipping.—From the report of the Secretary of
the Treasury, it appears that in the course of the
fiscal year ending June 30, 1866, 21,682 vessels
entered the ports of the U. S., measuring 6,872,258
tons—an increase of 926,911 in tonnage over the
previous year. The total tonnage of tbe country,
June 80th, was 4,871,668 of which 678,018 was
in steam vessels. The vessels built during the
year were 221 steam vessela, 80 ships and barks,
697jtrigs and schooners, 479 sloops, making in all
1,708 vessels, measuring 159,896 tons. The av-
erage amount of tonnage owned in. the United
States was, in 1830,1,191,776; in 1840,2,180,784;
in 1860, 8,686,464; and in 1866. 4,871,668.

ters concur m ib/ —
Peteraburgh is at
ures for a decisive _ d
popnlation of tbe Cauñuiú, in tho
ing once for all, with the independent tribes wl
have kept her power in oheck, and arrested the ao-
oomplisbmsnt of her designs in Ada. With that
object great preparations are on foot, and orders
have been sent to the troops who were echeloned
on the shores of the Caspian and on the banks of
the Araxes, to aot in case intervention shonld be
required by Persia. Thsy are estimated at not less
than one hundred thonaand men.
But, independently of that tone, Buasia is said
to have secured the aotive cooperation of several of
the ohiefs of tribes who reoognize her authority.
In Kussian Daghestan, to the North and South, the
Khans of Derbend, Tarkon, Kuba, Cliirvaa, Kara-
bagh, and others lesB known, are expeoted to fhr-
nish two bodies of horse and one of infantiy. The
chiefs have already received Bussian decorations
and high ranks in the Bussian'army.
The force whioh is thns abont to take the field ia
divided into five oorpe, whioh are to operate simul-
taneously on the north line, on thst of the Blaqk
Sea, on the centre, on the line of the Cespain, and
on uie south. Gen. Prince Bariatinski is the per-
son who is designated for the command in chief,
and with him will be associstsd a staff, composad
of officers seleoted from among the ablest and most
experienced of the Bussian ar y. It is even ex-
ioted that one of the Char's brothers ^ili proceed
ths scene of operation. *
I must say a word abont tbe preparations of ths
mountain tribes for war. The news of the Bussian
armaments appear to have excited great agitation
among them. The ohiefs who inhabit the northern
slope, Oil rather the whole valley of the Kuban,
have met together in order to deoide upon a plan
of common defense. Several oonferences have been
held, and the neoessity of a single authority, with
a view to the-unlty of operations, has been admit-
ted. To obviate jealousies among the cheifs it was
agreed to confer on a stranger the chief command ;
and a Hungarian wh has taken an active paH in
the wars of his own country and who hassinoe
became a Mnsselman, was selected. He accepted
the oommand, which was ofiéred to him by a depu-
tation, and some time< sinos left Constantinople
with about four hundred Poles, who are to form
the neoleua ofa Polish legion, u der the immediate
orders «f their own country men.
Two English vessels were freighted by fcim—4
brig and a steamer—and, besides tbe expeditionary
corps, oarried' out two field batterlse, some thou-
sand Minie rifles, rockets and ammunition,, fhf-
chased, it is said, in England and secretly sent to
the Bosphorns. '

Wxathxbt and Crops in Eastkbn Texas.— The
Naoogdoohes Chronicle, of 7th inst., says:
We were visited by a severe n'drthsr on Sunday,
and had a hard freeze on Sunday,night. Eviry
young green thing ont was killed, and some that
wasn't out. The growing oorn crop was nearly all
Suoax Cans was first introduced into Louisiana
by the Jesuits in 1761, A number of transports
with troops from France for tbe Colony of Louisir
ana, on the 17th April, of that year, touching at
St. Domingo, when tbe Jesn ta of Leogane, irfthe
bay of Port-au Prinoe, obtained leave to send on
board for their branoh establishment in New Or-
leans, a supply of oane and a few negroes used to
itsoúltívstion and the manufacture of sugar. These
canes were planted in tbe gardens of the Beverend
Fathers, at New Orleans, and their propogation by
the people zealously enoouTaged, but, from the great
difficulty experienced in making sugar from them,
b'nt 'little progress Was made in thair cultivation
nntil 1764, up to whioh time little or nothing was
known ófthe use of lime in the manufacture of sugar.
Although canes will grow as far north as 84 deg. it
is said that the syrap will not granulate. -
The Sdgar Crop of L ouisiana, last year, accord-
ing to Mr. Champotnier, was 78,976 hogsheads,
estimated at 81,878,000 lbs. This was the pro-
duct of 981 sugar houses and" nearly 400 bouses
produced nothing. The molasses produced was a
little under five millions of gallons. The crop of
Texas, last year, Mr. C. estimates, correctly, at not
over 150 hhds. Tbe crop of Louisiana has always
been subject to fluctuations. In 1828 it had reach
ed 86,000 hhds. The next year it fell off to 48,000,
It -had risen to 100,000 in 18Í84; but was only 80,-
OCÍO #1835, It rose to 115,000 in 1839, and 140,-
000¿in 1842. In 1848 it was 100,000 and in 1844
it rose to 200,000. The crop'of 1847 exceeded that
011846 by 100,000 bbds. The largest crop ever
made was 449,824 hhds in 1868. Mr* Champonier
attributes the short crop of the past year mainly
to the frost ot October, 1865, and tbe hurricane of
August, 1856. He does not attach much import,
ance to the idea that tbe cane bad become diseased,
fti, deteriorated by continued propogation from the
same seed. He anticipates a revival of the pros-
perity of the sugar interest; but (being 68 years of
age) scarcely expects to lire until another crop
equal to thatof 1868 is produced.
Snow to the depth of an inch fell at Liberty, on
the night of the 11th. A severe frost haa visited
all that region, and it is feared that great injury
has again been done to the yonng crops, which
were just recovering from the efleots of the frost on
The Slavs Tbase.—It is calculated that the
profits realized yearly from the African slave trade
amount to abont eleven million of doilare, while
the capital invested does not perhaps exceed fonr
millions: tiat there is a fleet of forty Vessels
manned by a thousand-men, and that by means of
the fleet some thirty thousand slaves are exported
yearly from the coast of Africa. •
Liberty.—The Gazette thus reports the progress
of our neighboring town:
In tbe town of Liberty there are now fourteen
stores, whsre almost any artiole called for may be
had. There is one hotel, and three private bouses,
where permanent and transient board can be ob-
tained. In the mechanical line, we have a saddler,
a tailor, a watchmaker, two blacksmith shops, a
'gunsmith, a wagon maker, a ehoemak-r that occa-
sionally works at his trade, a briok mason, two brick
yarda m operation, several carpenters; enongh law-
yers to do the legal business of the plaoe, doctors
enough to visit the few who -get sick here, and
schools where tbe yonng idea istaught to shoot.—
Also a drinking saloon, where cooling (1) d inks will
be served np in the hot monthB. Veri y, the town

No War with Mexioo.—The Washington cor-

on the part of Spain against Mexioo will not pro-
ceed to its destination, as it is believed that tbe de-
mands of Spain against Mexico will be complied

A Man in a Thousand.—We saw at the Interior
Department, yesterday, Mr. Benjamin F- Bobln-
son, the Government'agent for the Delaware In-
dians, a stalwart speoimen of the genus " Pro-
slavery Border Buffian." When the sales ofthe
Delaware trust lands took place not long since, the
money was paid daily as it came into his hands. At
the oonolnsion Of the sales he placed the whole
sum realized (in specie) $467,000, in two horse
wagons, and with a guard of some ten Delawares
and white men journeyed through " bleeding Kan-
sas" and the innmerable terrible Border Bnffians
looated in his path, crossing all the rivers on the
ice by the w;ay. nntil be reaobed St. Louis, where
he.deposited the whole sum without the loss of a
dollar, in the Sub-Treasury. This is an official
feat that should, injustice, be made known; for,
indeed, it is worthy of all praise.—Washington

The cane cuttings introduced into Louisiana by
the United State store ship Belease, from Dem ara-
ra, have proved almost an entire failure. Owing
to want of experience or proper care on the part of
the agent sent ont for them, in the seleotion, pack-
ing or Blowing of the " cuttings," they arrived for
the most part in a state of decay, and were almost
entirely worthless. They are said not to have
yielded enough to plant seven acres of ground in
all, while .the quality is in no way superior to that
grown in Louisiana.
George W. Smyth, of Jasper, haa reoeived

Granadlan Difficulty. ] ,
Herald of the 8d inst., has the foU
nee to (his matter: | *
Our readers will not be surprised to learn that
Mr. BowIji, the U. S. Minister, and Mr. Morse, the
. Special Commissioner, jointly deputed to lay before
the Executive ot Bogota the prop osition of the II. S.
Government, relative to the 16th of April, hare
been unsuccessful; that negotiations have been
suspended, and that now all further action in the
matter rests with Mr. Buchanan and his Cabinet at
Notonlyhaslhe demand of the United Statea
Government been refused, but according to our
private advices, the refusal haa been «9 insultingly
col rayed that there remains but one of two oour -
sea for the United States to adopt, namely, either to
submit to be insulted and brow beaten by New
Granatia, and quietly to withdraw her claim, or to
adopt that principle ot "self-preservation" ot which
tbe new President's inaugural spoke, and take by
force the indemnities and guarantees that have
been denied to her demands for redress.
Mr. Morse, it is stated, left Bogota on the 8th of
this month, but did not arrive at Carthagena in
time to meet the British steamer for Aspinwall.
Mr. Bowlin, we understand, will leave the capital
so as to reach here in May or June.
There remains nothing now but to await intelli-
gence from tbe United States as to how tbe matter
will be looked upon by the new President and his
Padre Vigil, of Nicaragua notoriety has been
appointed Curate of Mompos by the Bishop of
Dr. Scott b Churoh, at San Franoiaqo, was sat
on fire by an inoendiary and greatly'injured, a
short time sinoe. The loss is at $15,000.
Goons in Bond.—There has been a good deal of
doubt as to whether goods in publio store when
the new Tariff goes into e|feot receive the benefit of
tbe reduotion in duties. The National Intelligen-
cer published a copy of the law containing a olause
which limited tbe application of the new rates to
goods imported after the pattag* of the act. This
it appears, waa the reading of the original bill;
but the words in italio, it is now stated, were
stricken out hy Mr. Hunter, after he presented it to
the Senate, and before it passed to final action.
The 4th section of the law, as adopted, reads as
follows : " That all goods, wares and merchandize
whiob' shall be in the publio stores on the first day
of July aforesaid, shall be subjeot on entry thereof
for consumption to no other duty than if tbe same
bad been imported, respectively, after that day."
The Authority of Counoií.—A ungular legal
question has recently been deoided in the English
Court of Common Pleas, regarding the authority
of a lawyer to enter into a compromise of his
client's oase without bis consent. One of the moBt
eminent English council held the opinio^ that he
was not only justified in doing this, but that he
'it even so aot in spite of his client's objection.
Justice Crowder, who gave judgment in the
case, deoided that, within the oompaBS of his ordi-
nary functions, namely, the general management
of a oause, the ohoice of argumenta and the line of
Conduct to be pursued, the lawyer is vested by bis
client wiih an absolute discretion, of which he can
' nly be deprived by dismissing him from the case.
But compromises and settlements, though matters
of frequent occurrence in lawsuits, do not, in the
opinion of the court, come within the ordinary
function of counsel, but are, on the contrary, trans-
actions requiring a special authority.
Adulteration or Lard.—A singular communi-
cation was some time ago made to the London
Pharmaceutical Society bya Mr. Whipple, in which
be stated that having had reason, to suspect the
purity of commercial lard, he made experiments
which led to the detection of large quantities of
some farinaceous substance in it. In a quantity
weighing 105£ pounds, he found as much ¿É 22J
pounds of this foreign matter; and in another lot,
weighing 48$ pounds he found 12$ of a «¡miliar
substance. Mr. W. points out the pernicious ef-
fects which this adulteration would be likely to
produce in the employment of such lards for some
pharmaceutical purposes, and the danger which
might ensue from its application to machinery.
Another communication on tbia subject give® the
result of an analysis of some .American lard, via: 10
to lfiper qpt of wa'er, 2 to 8percentof al<in
About 1 per cent of 'quieklime. The alum, it
posed, is added for the purpose of facilitating
rising and increasing the whiteness of the con-
fectioner's paste, in which it is largely employed.
Flour in MissouRi.-The Legislature of Missouri,
at its recent session, passed a law requiring a 1
manufacturers of flour to place upon the barrels
containing it, "the name of the person or the_firm
who manufactured the same; also the State aUii
twon or place, and the mill or mills where manu-
factured, and also the grade of the quality and
weight thereto," under tbe penalty of twice the
value of tbe flour from which such particulars are
Omitted. .It also prohibits the defacing or altering
of any such brand under a like pénalty.
Tbe Printer and tbe Dutchman.
A Dutchman sitting at the door of his tavern in
the far West, is approached by a tall, tbin Yankee,
who is emigrating Westward, on foot, with a bun-
d le on Hcane over hia shoulder.
, "Veil, Mr. Yalking Shtick, vat you vant!" in
quired the Dutchman.
" Best and refreshment," replied the traveler.
W We notice with regret that the Hon. Guy
M. Bryan has been on an electioneering tour
through the interior. We should prefer to see tbe
people of the pounties in their primary meetings,
left free to canvass and determine upon their
choioe for Congress, without any effort to infiuenoe
tbeir action by the presenoe of any one of those
spoken of for nomination: oertainly muoh oan be
said to show that while perhaps all the other gen-
tleman remain quietly at home, leaving the peo-
ple unembarrassed by their presenoe, a proper sense
of propriety would have suggested the same course
to Mr Bryan, who has been a member of the Leg-
islature for ten years, partly reared in the State,
and ought to be willing to trust hir name in the
hands of the convention at Waoo. When a man is
nominated by a convention upon his merits and
oharaoter, without any connivance or extraordi-
nary solioitude on his own part, tbe people beoome
enthusiastic in his snpport. But when his nomi-
nation is secured by his own industry, he may rest
assured that there will be no enthusiasm among
the masses in his support. For our part we are
gratified to state that the man of our choice in thiB
matter, Mr. Potter, haa not left his home, nor taken
a single step to influence the action of a single man
or county. He does not desire the nomination
unless he is the free and willing ohoice of his party.
And such is the course of Col. Wiley and Judge
Paschal. These are plain faots, and we state them
from a sense of duty. Fully pledged to support the
norüinee, we do not desire to see any man nomina-
ted by previous log-rolling

Civilization is fatal to heathen nations. Any
one who reads tbe reports of the various mission-
ary and government agents, who have been en-
gaged in attempts to oivilize and convert the
American Indians, is led to believe that the abo-
rigines are rapidly becoming enlightened and
Christian people. We approve and applaud all the
benevolent labor whlob is expended for tbe im-
provement of their'condition, physioal, moral, and
social; but we do not believe that any elibrt oan
save them from rapid extinotion. Tne Westminis-
ter Beview says that in 1776, Captain Cook found
200,000 people inhabiting Tahiti. A census taken
just before the American Exploring Expedition
was there, showed tbe indigenous population to be
9,000. Tbe missionaries callr it 8,000. We are
told by the early navigators of the Paciflo, that
there were onoe human abodee, wherever there was
good soil and water, and that the population of
this group waa not less than S00,000. Twenty five
years ago within the period of strenuous missionary
effort it was double this. The Beview anticipates
the extinotion of these people as muoh more'Certain
than their oonvertion to oivilization and Chris-
tianiaty. A melancholy conolusion.
_ ¡F~ The idea that a man receives some new
dignity on ¿is accession to office, is repugnant to
our idea of republican equality. All plaoes of
publio trdst are and should be posts of honor, but
the incumbent shonld be as worthy of respect be-
fore, as after, he receives his position. Theoffloe
itself should carry along with it a certain respeot;
but this constitutes no part Of the private oharacter
of (he individual who fills it. A good citizen is as
muoh entitled to respeot in one position aa another.
"Pigmies are pigmies still, though perehed on Alps:
And pyramids are pyramids in valea ;

Among tbe advantages to accrue from the con-
struction ofthe Southern Paciflo Bailroad, with its
eastern terminus at New Orleans, the Picayune
enumeratea the following. [That paper begins to
grew eloquent on the subjeot.]
-The tide of population will flow along thia ohan-
nel of commerce. Tbe arta of peace will aooompa-
ny the exodus of civilized' hordes, the oontrivancea
of industry will supplant tbe barbaroua implements
of savage life. The song ofjoy,the voiceof prayer,
the hum of thrift, will be there; and the spire of
the honse of worship will point to the throne of
Heaven tbe hopea and supplioations of tribes who

The Rochester Times says: "We could never
understand the reason why tbe man who sells a
yard of cloth, or a hoe, or an axe, or a pair of
shoes, is regarded by the community aa better or
more respectable than he who made it—nor be
who sells a barrel of flour, or ships it off to another
coontry, than he who raised tbe wheat from which
it was manufactured."
The only reason why such ia the case, is tobo
found in a false public opinion—in a disposition to
judge men by their clothes and exterior appearance
rather than by ths only true bads, merit The

From the Aspinwall .Courier extra of tbo 4th
inst., we extract the following news from Greytown,
On ihe 28d or 24th of the past month, CoL
Lockridge destroyed the defences end abandoned
the poaitions at Serapiqui and San Carlos Ialand,
and with all his forces on board tbe steamers Rea-
eue and Scott, went up the river to attack the fort
Two deserters arrived here on Sunday last.
They stated that they left on the Friday night pre-,
vious—that Col. Lockridge was then at Machuca
Rapids, and that he had bee? engaged up to that
time in getting his provisions, ammunition, ete^
over the Rapids—that it was his intention to at-
tack Castillo the next morning (Saturday.)
Col. Geo. B. Hall, Capt. J. E. Farnham, and
Lieut. James Smith, have been dismissed from tbe
command for intemperance, and for conduct un-
becoming officers and gentlemen; and charges have
been preferred against them and forwarded to
Headquarters ot the Army.
Also, Dr. Anderson and Richardson of the 2d
Battalion, are dismissed for absence without leave.
The latest date from Walker's recruits up the
San Juan uiver, is to the 27.th ulL, at which time
the whole force, about 6U0 men, including sick
and wounded, bad been taken above Machuca Ra-
pids, ten miles below Castillo, aud were there en-
camped. Everything valuable had been removed
from Serapiqui and San Carlos island, and tbe for
(¡fications destroyed. All the men, ammunition,
provisions and boats were above tbe Machuca Ra
pids and preparations were being made to attack
Castillo at the earliest possible day.
The Oirzaba brought down twenty men for
Walker. The ste-mer coaled at Manzanillo on
the 18th of March, and obtained accounts of tbe
battle of the 16th, fully confirming the former ac-
counts. President Walker and his forces were in
good health. .

have intelligence that a rumor reached Greytown
on tbenU htot tbe 2d inst., that Col. Lookridge
took Castillo on the 80th ult., and that his entire
force amounted to 400 men, the Costa Bicsn force
being about the same number.
It is stated that Lookridge experienoed a loss of
twenty seven men, and that his force killed over
120 of th; enemy and roated the remainder.
