O" The first dredga boat we have ever had in
Texas was completed last week under the direc
tion of Mr. Bradbury and left yesterday for West
Bay to commence operations on the long-talked of
canal Before Icatiug she gave our citizens a
small sample of her capacity for throwing mud
from the bottom of the baj. All who witnessed
the performance admitted th it site could throw a
bigger shovel full than any other canal dijgcr they
had uu seen. It is estimated that ihc will throw
nborsfaoi els full tcr minuteeach of which
will Jill an ordinary horse cart and make more
than a load for one horse. But her actunl per-
formances on the canal will be the best evideuce
of her adaptation to the sen ice required. We hope

Under tins head the State Gazette of Austin
has an article of two columns in length w Inch com-
mences b) stating that the " ' News' seems to la-
bor under the mistaken opinion that we (the Ga-
ziMe) are opposed to the payment of our debt
This is far from bciiij the cae We have neter
for a moment favored the idta of doing less ; hut
conceive that it will satisfy ever) obligation of jus-
tice if the State shouldulou thc prinrip'e of pa) -mg
her creditors at the rate it was available to
Now it appears from this that the onH difficul-
t) in the matter is how to determine what consti-
tutes our indebtedness; for the Gazette sa)S it
does not favor the idea cf doing Its than pa)-
mg the debt whatever it is and certain!) we arc
not in favor of doing in on. Is then the amount
of that debt to he ascertained by the literal and
express promises which the State then made and
according to thc mutual understanding both of the
State and its creditors at that tune of what was
xncas: b)tTiose promises : or must we determine
that debt by the degree of its availability i to thc
State? It would seem from the alxnc extract
that the Gazette is in fuior of the latter method
Our opinion is that this debt was really the price
of our independence and that without the dist-
ance which we procured from these promises the
revolution would have been a failure. If this Lo
so then thoe promises were certain!) available
for a much larger amount than the) call for. By
their means we procured not only the te ritory
which has been sold for the ten millions hut also
other territory of vastly larger extent and a hun-
dred times more valuable. Wc do no therefore
agree with the Gazette that wc should pay those
promises at the rate of tht ir ava ilabil t) ; because
that would make our indebtedness at least ten
tunes as much as thc amount that was actual!)
promised. The obligation of grat tude may per-
haps be just.) measured by tho benefits we re-
ceived from the id rendered us in our doubtful re-
olutionary struggle; but our pecuniary obliga-
tion wc think should be limited strictly to thc
amount which ue actual!) promised to pa). Ac-
cording to the rule of the Gazt ttc that our debt is
lobe measured by the rale it was available"
its amount would be more or less according to our
ability to make it available. Will the Gazette
point out the authority for making the amount o.
obligation of a promise depeud ou the contingency
of its availahiht) ? We do not recollect to have
seen this rule laid down by Totlner or an) of the
writers ou civil or moral obligation All the au-
thorities we hate read agree m adopting tho rule
that the exteut or amount.oC au obligation can on!)
be determined b) the agreement between the par-
ties and that thisagrcenulit is to be interpreted
and enforced m the bins by which it w is under-
stood b) both pirtim at the time. This is the on-
I) rule re have found b) which to K (ermine the debt
n Inch one part) ov es to nuother. If the agree-
ment was understood dilFtrentl) b) the parties then
the debt must be determined b) the rule of quan-
tum meruit fi quantum cahlat tyr ; but even in
this case we have seen no authority fomppljinj
the Gazette's rule of availab lit). If Texas had
been able to in ike 100000 of her debt avail ible
in securing lands .vorth a million it does not fol-
low therefore that she owes a million instead of
1000(10. In like maimer had she ulterl) failed
in securing anything with the 100000 or Ind it
been available to her for nothing it does not fallow
that she would be under obligation to pay nothu g
(as would follow from iheGazi tie's rule ) ulthough
her ability topa might have been destro)ed But
in tins case there is no occasion for referring to
the quaitum meruit quantum ra'elar or availabi-
lity to determine the debt; because that was de-
termined by the parties at thc tune the debt was
created. The only question thin is whether
there was any misunderstanding between the par-
ties as to tho nature of the obhg ition or the amount
of the debt. Did Texas and herctcditors under-
stand the agreement in thc aniecusc? for if they
did that ts thc sense m winch bolh parties are
bound to fulfil it according to all the rules of obfi-
gation wc have ever seen. If it was th- under-
standing that Texas was not t pay merely what
naspromucdin her obligation but the full aiwmut
to which she might make her creditors money
available then we roust be governed by the Ga-
zette's rule and pay over tho proceeds of all our
public domain If it was the understanding that
Texas w as to pay hut one third oiie-fourth or oue-
fiftli of what was promised (acco-dtng to the mar-
ket filue of the promise at the time) then our ac
tual indebtedness is but one-third one-fourth or
one-fifth of what was promised and we may
therefore proceed to reduce it according!). But
if it w as the understanding between I exas and her
creditors that the amount of the debt was to be
the exact sum named in thc promise aad neither
more nor le tl.eu that sum certainly constitutes
the debt. We refer to tint undtMandmg of the
parties nnd their true intent and meaning as the
only rule wo have ever heard of to determine mora'
or I -gal obligation. Tins rule it a true doot not
hold good when thc parties are not competf1 to
contract ; but we presume tint neither Texw ucr
her creditors will plead incompetency.
It now only remains to ascertain what undei-
s'anding that was in order to determine thc amount
of our indebtedness If the editor of the Gazette
can find leisure for another article on this subject
we shall be glad to learn from hi ti as an old citi-
zen of the countiy whether it wis or was not the
universal understanding at the time our debt was
contracted tint it thould be pud according to the
amount promised; or according to its availability
or according to its dtpreciation at that or any
Wc have referred to thc mutual undertinding
of the parties a"d their true intent and meaning
at the time the obligation was consummated for
we presume it will not be pretended that either
partv had aright to change the nature or the terms
of the obligation at any subsequent period without
tho conaeut of the other pirty.
Wc have thus endeiv orcd as clearly as possible
to give our views as to the true principles by which
the actirl amount of our indebtedness mut be de-
termined It apppears to us necessary to agree
upon those principles at tho verv thresho'd of this
important investigation i for we cannot ei how it
h possible for us to measure the extent of an obli-
gation without appl)ingto it wnv well-krown
and determinate rotes. If wc have been in error
as to those rules wc will thank the Gazette to point
out our error and it shall at once be corrected.
Thc Gazette has touched upon many topics
which wc have not time Bovr to discu-s

More of Peter Eogers.
Capt.Wood who arrived yesterday from Sabine
Pass with the schooner Uncle Bill informs us
that the notorious Peter Rogers has lately made h.s
appearance at that place. He was firt seen in
that neighborlwod on Friday lost by a person w ho
had known him while he was running a vesel be-
tween that place and this city but did not know
that he had been sent to the Penitentiary. On
Sunday night he took a large skiff belonging to the
bpirtau Mill Compan) then broke into Capt.
Hurd's house and stoic articles valued at about
one hundred dollars and put them on board thc
skiff He nlso broke into Mr. Burkftfs grocery
(Air. Burkett being from home) and took as it is
supposed another hundred dollars worth of prop-
erty. On Mouday night he was seen at a house
ou the sea cost near the month of Mud Creek
where he stopped for supper. He had his boat
and his stolen effects with him and was coasting
his way to New Orleans.
The parties who saw Rogers did no knov he
was a fugitive convict but their devnptrtti of hun
leaves no doubt whatever as to his ideidiiy. It
is well fur the public to bear in miLd that a re-
ward of $500 is offered for hint' 'Hits reward
ma) doubtless be c isily earned by a little energy
We are under obligations to aU.S Officer of
this city for the result of all the returns of the cej-
susas far as they have yet come in 'I hese re-
turns embrace all tho counties of the State except
the following uimcl) : Galveston Cameron Starr
Webb Wharton Fannin Gra)son Deulou Cook
and Colhn The total of white population of thc
counties returned is l"Jl92j and of slaves is ."i-
55C 35000 is probably a moderate estimate for
thc white population of the counties above named
and 1UU00 for the slave population. This would
make the total white population of the State in
round numbers 163000 aud the slaves G2000
B) adding three filthsoftheslaves namely 37000
to thc number IGS.000 we have 205000 as our
population entitled to representation m Congress
which will secure to us two members in the lower
house. But should tho actual population of the
State entitled to representation be les than 200-
000 still it can on I) fall &hort by a very small
uiimbt r so that we shall be quite certain to have
one of the largest fractions m thc Union h which

W. RlCIIlPDSON EQ.
Dear Sir. On my arrival at San Frannsco I
was amazed to see a city of only two years exist-
ence containing nt least 40000 inhabitants The
many most magnificent and costly fitted np saloons
appeared thc work of magic rather thun thc result
of human ingenuity and mechanical labor. The
improvements of the whole countiy are beyond
description The population of this city is about
20000. There aro "about twenty steamboats tra-
ding to th s point; the large class below and the
smaller ones in the upper rivers Also about 400
wagons and as many pack mules are daily coin-
ing and going. It is supposed that 2000 persons
daily visit this city which makes it a great point
fortnde. Stores with a front of 20 feel by 100
feet m depth rent at the" rate of 6000 per an-
num and a year ago they rented for $12000. I
believe it will decline pnc-half in another) ear; and
then rents will be five times greater than m any
other country m the woild.
The gold placer no doubt w ill yield to those ac-
customed to hard labor $9 per day for many a year
to come; which alone is sufficient to causo many
other great improvements m this golden country
and continue a greater amount of travel between
this country and thc Atlantic States than has ever
been over any other route known m thc world.
The climate is really delightful; it is' but ery lit-
tle colder than at Galveston during the day lime
but much colder t night.
It has ramed but very seldom here this winter
and for the want of rain many rauches recently
started in this country will produce but little. The
market is at present well supplied with vegetables
fish en ison antelopes birds veal pork mutton
geese ducks ic The price of board at private
house j is J per day; and at hotels from 3 to 4
I suppose there arc about a hundred hotels and
boarding houses in this city

by a very largo majority of the Louer House for
the enl lrgementof the Erie Canal by an expendi-
ture ol about nine millions winch money was to bo
paid out of the Fiirplui revenues of the canal as
they accrue from year to year. It was oppostdou
account of its supposed unconstitutionality; the
0 position being con Sued chiefly to Democrats
ihe opponents found they could not prevent it
from pasmj thc benate ; and therefore thirteen
Democrats resigned in a body thereby depriving
thc Senate of a constitutional quorum and of the
power to act. 'I he Legislature was consequently
obliged to adjourn sine die
Gov. limit has ordered a new election and call-

37 Thc Brazos is now fait falling and is
entirely within its banks. Many plantations
have been overflowed but we hope no very se-
rious injury has been done to the crops. The
cane crop is said to be fast recovering from the
injur) of the fro&t and cold weather.
J5" We Inv e been show n a sample of China
cotton with the seed. It was sent to Mr. II.
B. Gwathmey of New Orleans by a frknd
visiting J3h tnghai China by whom it was sent
to Messrs. Doswell Hill & Co of tliiscity.
The staple of this cotton is remarkably fine
and Ttiy sttong though shorter than the Ame-
rican upland. It adheres to the seed w 1U1 such
tenacity that it is doubttu! whether it could be
sep tratcd by our gin. The seed has been giv en
to several planters with a view to ascertain
what chinge it woutd undergo from our soil
and climate. The seed resembles our upland
thou 'It smaller.
The Crops. From every qu trier of our
State we have account cf the most cheering
diameter relative to the present promising as-
pect of tre corn aud cotton crops. In some
sections it is said the appearances of the
stands are decidedly more favorable than they
have been for several years indicating abun-
dant yields of both corn and cotton. If no
unfivorable change should intervene between
this and the proper gathering season to over-
shadow the present bright prospects of our far-
mers the amount vvhichwill bo realized from
the profits ofthis year's crop will be immense.

RtrcAWAT Negho Caught. The Tevas
Hanger of the 23d inst. states that two negro
men were a few days previously caught in
the Brazos bottom opposite the town of Wash-
ington. uThey were on a log completely sur-
rounded with water nnd could not get to the
high land they had not eaten any food for
four d i) s." Mr. B ildridge nUo caught a run-
away negro on the 2 1st inst near the ferry at

Teas Banger of the 23d inst that a "Mr. Neat
Bon en while in a grocery with two ather gentle-
men was shot down with a rifle by some un
known hand" This occurred at the town of
Brenham Washington county on Saturday the
19th inst aud the wounded man died on the fol-
lowing morning. In relation to tins melancholy
affair the Ranger says :

Additional Warnings for the South.
Willing as wo have always been to subott to
thc late compromise or almost any comprom
that would gire the South a quiet and undisturbed
enjoyment of their cojatitutiona! rights we never-
theless feel it our duty to show our readers tha
they are deceiving themselves if they anticipate
any such enjoyment under thc so called peac
measures." With thc exception of one all those
measures were only for the benefit of the North
and that one has been rendered inoperative and
its benefits to the South defeated in ninety-nino
cases out of every hundred by the violent opposi-
tion which is manifested to it at the North. Bat
will the fugitive slave law such as it is be permit-
ted to continue in force ? In answer to this ques-
tion we copy the following passages from the Ohio
State Journal z. leading Whig paper of that State
simply remarking that the same sentiments are
advanced by a very largo number of northern jour-
nals. Those journals may be divided into tw
classes one of which representing the AbolitiomsU
and ultra Free Soilers advocatis an active opposi-
tion to the law by mobs and outbreaks such aa
we have witnessed in Boston and some other pla-
ces and by counter State legislation like that of
Vermont iIassaehtUr'OJiio fS:c- The other-
class piofesscs also to be opposed to the law but
not bysttch lawless means. Those journals repre-
sent the law abiding portions cf the North Twfc 00
object it is to repeal the objectionable law by an
act of Congress. We do not beliero that tn
journals can be named throughout all the frte
States which do not belong to one or the other of
these classes. Tho journal from which these ex-
tracts are copied belongs to the more moderate and
law abiding class :
"The Legislative Department has the power to
make aud unmake laws and it 13 the duty of all
rood citizens to submit to the legally expressed will
of a majority of the nation so hu as that will re
mains in the form of a constitutional law- It is
however just as clearly tlw right of thc people to
change or abolish this law as it is their duty to
obey it while it is on the statute book. Tho power
that creates a law may change or repeal it rio
one has the right to charge a breach of devotion to
thc constitution and the Union upon others who
may desire that change."
"It is almost a self-evident proposition that if a
majority of Congress see fit to alter or abolish any
law upon our statute books wc are ai good alliens
bound to submit"
"Suppose it is ascertained that the liberty of th
free black is not sufficiently protected thereby ; that
it contains provisions that need some modification;
and that a majority of the people of the North
seeing its practical effects a.k to have the law so
far changed as to obviate thesa objections whuo
it still gives the South the substantial benefits of
that clause of die nonstitntion to carry out which
the law was passed. Suppose a majority of tho
members of Congress should see the subject in
this light and determine to make the modification
by changing the obnoxious parts of tins law. By
what s)stem of reasoning have tho South th
slave States a right to complain ?
We say to the South ifthmnibntyof thc peo
ple of the North and a majority of the Rcpresan-
tames ol me people in congress see ni to moony
the Fugitive Slave Law you must submit to it."
