Gentlemen—1 received to-day your printed

and not only, not satisfied with this denuncia
tory proceeding, you assume to yourselves tbe
right to dictate to the country what shall.be tbe

essential interests. Least silence might becan-
strued into acquiescence in tbe propriety of the
arrogant, defiant and dictatorial position in whfch
you have placed yourselves, I will very briefly

after by a By-law requiring " CotUyr, to be in

an arbitrary deduction of one per cent there-
from. The weigher has the right, and it is
made bis duty by the law, to determine the con-
dition of the cotton weighed by him, and the de-
duction, if any, to l e made in consideration of
its not being in proper condition. As' #,-<11 then,
and infinitely more just, would it be, that a
tribute of one per cent of the capital employed
by you, in speculation in the productions of our
labor, should be paid to the advancement of the
general interests of tbe country, and to the en-
forcement of a faithful administration of its
lawt, than that any part of the honest earnings
of our citizens should be sacrificed to the cu-
pidity of a speculative desire. You refer, in

toms and usages of distant commercial marts-
notorious and proverbial for their dishonest and
nefarious practices upon the producing classes,
perpetrated under the sanction of commercial
regulations, for which are claimed the dignity
and authority of law. It is to avoid these gross
impositions that the planters and merchants of

sequence of the detection of bis peculations and

The all absorbing topic on the London Stock
Exchange was the fraud on the Union Bank, by
the bite cashier:
A subordinate cashier, named Edward J. Lyt-
tleton, had also been arrested, a deficiency of
£1,240 having been discovered in his accounts,
He attributed the deficiency to Pullinger.
Humors of other discoveries of a serious na-
ture had also been current, but they were pro-
nounced without a. shadow of foundation- The
forged pass-book, by which the great fraud was
effected, is not in Pullinger's writing, and every
effbrt was being made to detect the person who
assisted him on that point.
It is asserted that tbe misappropriations, by
Pullinger extended over the entire five years
during which he was chief cashier. There is
Httle doubt that the greater part of tbe money
must have gone in stock exchange speculations,
although a number of other channels are re-
ported. The Stock Exchange Committee had
commenced an inquiry into the affair, as it affec-
ted the members of the Exchange. Two or three
of the brokers who transacted bussiness with
. Jlinger.had surrendered securities and also
money, tbe proceeds of stocks and shares sold,
which were considered the property of Pullin-

Sfxcial Newspaper T«un Socih
New York Herald of the 9th says;
To-day, tbe same arrangement by which the
metropolitan newspapers are delivered North
by a special express train in advance of tbe
mail, will be carried into operation in connection
with Philadelphia and all parts of the South on
the line of the railroads. The papers will be
delivered to the dealers at Norfolk at three
cents, and at Mobile and New Orleans at three
and a quarter, thus enabling the dealer to retail
them at those remote points at a price which
is not to exceed six cents. The time occupied
in. tba transmission of newspapers from New
Vork to New Orleans will not at the ortside be
more than eighiv-six hours, and a corresponding
time for less distances. As soon as the New
Jersey and Camden and Amboy railroads make
up their differences, and fall into the scheme, a
further economy of several hours will be
effected. The inhabitants will then receive
the New York morning papers at their breakfast
table, whilst in Washington instead of getting
them at seven in the erening, will receive
hem at two.
How the Slave Trade ts Encocraod.
The proceedings in the United States Circuit
Court on Saturday, and published in the Son of
yesterday, throw some light upon the manner in
which parties engaged in the African Slave
Trade can, in defiance of our laws, fit out their
vessels in this port, and dispatch them upon
their nefsrious mission. The " Storm King "
may not be aslaver.but she was suspected, and
it was the duty of the officers charged with the
maintenance of the law to secure her detention
until an investigation had established her true
It is a notorious fact, that slavers are fitted
eut at this port, and we hare heard the ftate-
mant made by parties professing to be well-in-
formed, that not a month passes, in which one
or more vessels do not sail for the coast of Africa
to procure slave cargoes. We think that in view
of tbe recent developments, President Buchadan
should inquire how the business of the United
States Marshal's office, in this district, has been
conducted. When Federal officers abandon
their posts, and leave untrustworthy persons to
attend to their duties, they ought to be called to
It cannot be a pleasing incident to Marshal
Rynders to find on his return from his Charles-

of them his own brother—have been dismissed

transaction is not confined to tbem. It foils
also upon the country, and the Government
should take steps to prevent its recurrence.
The New York journals have just inaugu-
rated a scheme for the transmission of their pa-
pers south by express, on the plan lately adopted
along the line of tbe Hudson River Railroad.
It is said that tbe time occupied in tbe trans-
mission of newspapers from. New York to New
Orleans will not at the ontaide be more than
eighty-six hours. Should the system prove a
success it will reduce very materially the labor
and expenditure of the Postoffice Department,

Movement or Ranubbs.—Captains Ford and
Littleton's Ranging companies passed through
tbis county the present week on their way to
Goliad, to await further orders from the Gov-
ernor—most likely to be disbanded. Lieut. Mat
Nolan, of Ford's company, stopped two days at
his home in this city. It was reliably reported
when he left Brownsville, that Cortina was con-
centrating his forces at La Mesa, on the Mex-
ican side of the Rio Grande, and the day after
the Rangers left, they received news by some
of the men that remained a day behind and had
overtaken them, that a marauding band of Cor-
tina's men crossed to this* side the river, and
after killing one Mexican citizen, and wounding
another, retreated back. The prospects are that
the Regulars will have a busy time of it in
keeping armed bands of Mexicans on thefr own
soil. Cannot a stop.be put to such high-handed
Death op an -Sbonaitt.—A New York dis-
patch of the 11th gives the following:
Mr?Conner was advertised to make a second
balloon asoension yesterday from the Palace
Garden. Despite the violent gusts of -find
which now and then sprung up, and the remon-
strance of his friends, he persisted in attempt-
ing the ascension; but no sooner had the bal-
loon left the ground than it was dashed with
great force against the Concert Salooi. which
foces the garden. The basket caught for a mo-
ment under the projecting eaves of thebnilding,
then was hurled against a skv-light With great
force. The balloon instantly collapsed.; Mr.
Conner was found on the reof of the building,
and the physicians, who were immediately sum-
moned, ascertained that his injuries were prin-
cipally internal. During the evening he re-
mained insensible, and expired at 11 o'clock, v-
m. His wife witnessed the casualty, and womd
probably have shared her husband's fate, had
the ascension power of the balloon been found
sufficient to carry up two persons, as it w« her
intention to attempt a voyage. ■ .

.. . rge as the Great
Eastern, it could be made of iron plates. He
quoted from Mr. Green's experiments on the
great Eastern current, published 20 yeare ago,
proving its existence beyond all donbt. Mr.
Wise then explained the natural theory of the
winds according to the Ecolesiastes: " The
wind goeth towards the north and turneth about
towards the south; it whirleth continually, and
the wind returneth again according to its cir-
cuito." He illustrated tbis with a diagram.—
He had always found the great Eastern current
at an altitude of less tha 10,000 feet, except
last summer, when he ascended from Lafayette,
Ind., at which time he found it at- aa- elevation
of 12,000 feet. He thought it practicable to sail
round the world in a balloon. To cross the
ocean would require a balloon 80 to 100 feet in
diameter, to make which, 3,500 yards of silk
would be needed. This, half filled with hydro-
gen gas, would raise 16,000 pounds, or eight
tons. To go round the world would require a
balloon 150 feet in diameter, made of 14,000
yards of silk, and capable of lifting 135,000
pounds. With this, a seaworthy sloop could be
carried, to be used on an emergency. The
smaller balloon would carry a life-boat with
several persons and all necessary apparatus.
Mr. Wise explained the operation of the drag-
rope. He noticed the remarkable fact that in a
balloon there wis nothing of the sensation of
vertigo or giddiness. The question of circum-
seronauting the globe was merely a question of
time. Mr. Wise alluded to the use of the bal-
loon at the battle of Fleerus, and last year at
the battle of Solfernio. He had found the great
Eastern current flowing at rates from 50 to 100
miles per hour. At an elevation of three miles,
a velocity of 100 miles per hour could always
be attained, which would require only 30 hours
to cross the oceau, or 12 days to circum-aero-
naut tbe globe. Traveling about by means of
looal current he thought much more pleasant
than driving a fast horse. Mr. Wise concluded
by dwelling upon the importance of ballooning
in a therapeutial point of view, as a means of
offense in war, and aa furnishing a point of ob-
servation for military and road surveys. He
regretted that ballooning bad folien into such
disrepute that it was hardly possible to get a
good audience to witness a balloon ascension.
Modentnq Customs.—A French writer gives
a summary of the different observances among
mankind relative to mourning aq£ funeral cere-
monies, which we think will interest our read-
ers. All the world, says he, are acquainted with
the grandeur of the Roman obsequies and fo-
neral games. The Greeks also buftit the corpses
jof the distinguished men with funeral feasts and
lamentations of hired weepers, though they
irally displayed a less sumptuous grief and
jr regulated piety. The Persians bu-
ried the bodies of tbe dead: Tbe I
them; the Indians enveloped them
tion sake, in a sort of locker; the ,
lalmed and dried them, exhibited them on
the festal days, placed tbem at the tables
among their guest, guard tbem as their most
precious jxw sessions, and loaned and borrowed
money on fhesr- strange pledges. In our timé,
the custom of dancing at funerals is only prac-
ticed in India, and among savage nations; but
fosera] entertainments still prevail in many
European óonntries. Among others, the ceremo-
ny of interment is solemn and silent, which
nevertheless does not interfere with the wish that
all'may be forgotten as speedily as possible.
We observe more ostentations rites for persons
of consequence. Their carriages follow them to
the graves and sometimes their horses par-
aded, nhich having been made to fast, seAn
to partake of the afflictions of the occa-
sion.—Tbe Orientals, from whom we borrow
Ids customs, went further, they made tbe horses
in the fornerat proocession weep by blowing a
particular kind of powder up their nostrils.
In Italy, the mourning was formerly white
for women, and brown for men. In China it is
white—in Ethiopia gray. Each of these col-
ore had originally, its mystical signification.
White is the emblem of purity; cellestialblue
Indicates the spaco where the soul ranges after
death ¡yellow or the tinge of dead leaves, ex-
hibits death as the end of all human hopes, and
man falling like the leaf of autumn; gray re-
present the color of the earth, onr common
mother; and, the funeral costume now adopted
throughout Europe and America, is an illusion
to tbe eternal light.
In England the sovereign never wears black:
he is clothed in dark pnrple as mourning. Tili
the reign of Chares YllL, white was the funeral
garfa of France. The Emperor Leopold, who
died in 1704, used to sufifer bis beard to grow in
disorder during the whole period of mourning.
In this he imitated the Jews. Tbe dowager Em-
press never left the weeds, and their apartments
—we hung with black until their déath.
The chancellor of Erance is the only person
tfho never wears mourning. The brothers,
nephews, and cousins of Pepes never wear it; the
happiness of having a Pope in thefomily is too
grnt to allow them to be affected even by his
But the most remarkable of all these usages,
is that of the people ofthose ancient nations who
dressed themselves as Wunen when they lost
their relatives, in order, it is said, that the ridi-
cule attached to Ibeir vestments might make
tbem ashamed of their grief.-r^ '
Bank Swindles Caituh v at Last.—Tbe Sa-
vanah Republican, of the title says :
We stated, some two weeks ago, that an in-
dividual bad been arrested in Richmond, Texas,
with a large amount of State Bank bills in his
possession, and there were reasons for believ-
ing that he was Ae identical person who perpe-
trated the heavy forgery upon the bank a short
time since; and further, that Mr. Wallace Cum-
ming, the assistant cashier, bad proceeded to
Texas to look into the matter. Mr. C. returned
to the city Wednesday night, and we are grati-
fied to bear that,his trip was successful, and
that the forger and money are likely both to be
recovered. The individual answers in every
.respect to the forger Brown, though he gras
passing under tbe assumed name of Greea.
Those who know him out there say his real name
is Lawson; that he is a Methodist preacher,
and was for many years a resident of Mobile.
Tbe package of money was found to be the
same as was fraudulently obtained from the
bank, no part of it having been dimoaed of.
The slip of paper containing the ostentations of
the discount clerk was also in ths package,
which was still wrapped in the identical news-
paptr taken from the bank. Brown, alias
Green, alias Lawson, is now in jail of Colorado
eounrhr, and the money in the possession of the
sheriff. A requisition upon (he Governor of
Texas will be sent out «mediately.^
Death of Peter Pabiet.—The telegraph
announces the death in New York of Samuel
Griswold Goodrich, who, under the nseadonym
of Peter Parley, is very widely known. Mr
Goodrich was born in Ridgefiefd Conaectiout
August 19,1703. Early in life he was engaged
in the publishing business in HartfordT He
visited Europe in 1824, and on his return settled
in Boston, where be commenced the publication
of his Peter Parley series of junivile books
From these, and from other books and periodicals
which he wrote or edited, he derived not only a'
wide popularity, but a considerable income.
It ia the merit of his juvenile works that they
are reliable sources- of knowledge as well as
funds of entertainment. • They please our read
era and at the same time instruct.
Much of what is seally valuable in these works
is undoubtedly due to the breadth and accuracy
of the learning of the late M. Xittell, at the time
of his death editor of the Boston Courier. Mr
K. did the work and Mr. G. received the honor
and emolument in more than one instance.

obliged to pay a duty of $48,000, instead of ob-
taining a free permit, wbicb is so much clear
gam to the revenue. Two of the three cargoes
entered here are still held by tbe suthonties
under advisement. One of these came from Lon-
don, and the Government claim that it was
there bought at a public sale at a price higher
than the invoice on which the importers
sought to enter it here. This is held to await
further evidence from the port of exportation.
The second bas been advanced by the apprais-
ers (part of it) more than ten per cent. <n the
invoiced value, and now abides the descision of
the revenue officers. The third, being ad-
vanced by the appraisers less than ten per
cent, has been admitted to entry on payment of
a duty of 24 percent. The value oi the last
named cargo was about $70,000; so that the
duty amounts to a snug little sum for the U. S.
Treasury., This last is the cargo to which we

A Cordial for ladies, Aged Eereont, d r.
Of theae two varieties of Bitters, the ñrst ia to be
taken mixed with any agreeable fluid, while the second
may be taken pure, or both may be mlnglgd together,
forming a bitter of great or less Intensity, so as to pine
every taste. The arotua and delicious flavor then Ut-
ters possess have induced the finest judges to pro-
nounce them auperior to any hitherto manufactured.
They are particularly efficacious In restoring health,
and estahllahltigitnpsiitd digestion, that fruitful source
of dtsnaes, such as Dyspepsia, Nervoul aad Liver Af-
fections, General Weakness, Ac., all of wbicb render
-lifea burden. In any fever followed by protracted
convalescence, and consequent weakness, no remedy Is
better adapted to restore strength aad hasten the com-
plete return of health.
IT*? N. B. The American Bitters may likewise be
taken pure. They do not contain much spirits. The
strong flavor they possesa arises from the aroma, the
predominance of a bitter principle, both of which are,
however, highly agreeable. Said bitters have been in-
troduced Into general uae in the principal coffeehouses,
