ARRIVAL OP THE CALHOUN.
The United States mail steamship Calhoun,
Capt. Bathbone, from Vera Cruz, arrived
here last evening. She left Vera Cruz on
the 22d inst.
We have received bj this arrival full files
of Vera Cruz papers to the 22d, and of the
capital to the 19th inst. The news is of
interest in its general character, as it in-
dicates the continued growth of discontent
Against the present government; although
from the Mexican papers we learn these
facts, not so much by the announcement of
new bands of insurgents as from the in-
creased number of reported victories ob-
picked up and some were dangerously
A party of " facciosos" entered the town
of San Juan del Rio, Queretaro. and from
there they marched to the city of Queretaro,
of which they took possession. In the
attack Gen. Magaña, commanding the
government troops, was killed. The insur-
gents are commanded by Gen. Mejia, who
took a part in the rebellion of Gen. Uraga,
at Puebla, and who, through the clemency
of the Government, escaped from death.
The standard of the rebels is the well known
" Religion y Fueros," and besides th'ev
promi.-e to d.v.de the land proper ty among3t
the Indians. The number of the invade; s,
it is said, does not exceed five hundred.

where we had not before been made aware
that there was any resistance to the present
authorities. We presum* that this suppres-
sion of facts as to the real state of the
country is the result of the policy of the
Government, which exercises a censorship
over the press, rather than of a desire on
the part of the press to falsify tiie truth.
In this partisan and one-sided character of
the Mexican papers wo find no exceptions;
and even theEuglish paper published in the
capital, the Mexican Extraordinary, is as
devoted to private interest as the rest of its
compeers in that country. From our liles
we extract the following items of news :
The Extraordinary says:
Rumors of the defeat of reactionary
movements come from every quarter. They
have now amounted to almost daily occur-
rences. An attempt at revolution was
promptly quelled at Colima on the 15th
ult., and we learn by private advices from
Vera Cruz that Senor Don Pedro Cueto was
lately arrested and incommunicated on a
charge of conspiracy. He was found
associated with a number of malcontents.
Another attempt has been made at revolu-
tion by a party of men hended by a man
named Calderón, at Chalchicomuiu, in the
State of Puebla. He has been routed and
his forces completely put to flight by the
forces of the Republic. Several persons
were taken prisoners; Don Jose Gusto
Goffre, Don Manuel Tjigle, Don Francisco
Arnota, Don Vicente Calderón, and one
other person. The plan of Calderón was
to proclaim the Basis Orgánicos, and Don
Roinulo de la Vega President. This is the
sixth failure of the reactionists to create a
revolution in the State of Puebla.
A pronunciamiento has been suppressed
at Maravatio, in the State of Michoacan. It

in the capital that he is to take charge of

American Farmer . ontains an advertise-
ment from the State Inspector of Guano in
Maryland, urging farmers to destroy or
erase the marks on Guano bags after
emptying them. There is little doubt but
that imposition is effected through the use
of second hand bags, and although there is
a heavy penalty for this offence, it is diffi-
cult to obtain such "legal" evidence as
troops to their destinatien.
Advance in Liquors.—The Charleston
Courier has a letter from Bordeaux, dated
August 5th, which says that the grape crop
will be very shott this year, not exceeding
one-fifth the usual quantities. Wines and
brandies have advanced enormously and
reached the highest point attained wi'hiu
a few years past.
Vicksburg, Shreveport and Texas Bail-
road.—The iron horse has already been put
upon the track of this road, as appears by
the following paragraph, copied from the

On Thursday morning our ears were
greeted by the first snort of the iron horse

called up visions of teeming wealth, which,
in the future, will pour from that quarter
into the lap of our flourishing and growing
Energy.—"The longer I live," says a
great writer, " the more certain I am that
the great difference between men, the great
and the insignificant, is energy—invincible
determination—an honest purpose once
fixed, and then death or victory. That
quality will do anything that can be done
in the worldand no talent, no circum-
stances, no opportunity, will make a two-
legged creature a man without it."
Death of a Manufacturer.—Mr. Alfred
Victor Du Pont, the head of the great
powder manufacturing compauyat Wilming-
ton, Del., died at Nemours on the 4th iust,
aged 5S. He was the eldest son of Itene
Du Pont, who founded the gunpowder,
wool and cotton manufactories of Delaware.
A St, Louis dispatch says that the grass-
hoppers have eaten up tlie entire tobacco
crop of Frank'in county, and the last that
was heard from them, they were sitting on
the corners of the fence, begging every man
that passedfor a chew.
Resignation Withdrawn.—We learn from
a Washington dispateh that the Commis-
sioner of Patents has been induced to with-
draw his resignation of that office, lately
tendered, and will leave at an early date on
a temporary visit to Iowa.
The art of performing.—Promise little,

Open your hearts to sympathy, but close
it to despoudency. The flower which op-

Laziness begins in cobwebs and ends in
iron chaius. It creeps over a man so slow-

before he knows it.
Tell a miser he's rich, and a woman she's

kindness of the other.
