tus of a weekly jotiriial willi this title has just
been issued at Ya.-diuirton. James C Picket is

ceeds arc to be applied toward) the construction of
the National Monument The first number is to
b published ou the fourth of next July.
TutxiTY Tit.nn Mr. McCorinick has kindly
taken the Double to procure for us the correct
amount of the shipments of coltoa from the Tri-
nity river for the present year.
The total amount of bales tip to the present date
u '. 7inw
The amount jet lo come is i ery Minll Lnd nlll not

Tiic amount baulcd to tlire ejKirt fmra tl.o North-
eni couiities before the opening or tiie navija-
tion is Lttimalcd at 1500
Total amount of cotton raised lit the aIIeyof the
Trinity lal year 11733
It is proper to remark that it was unusually late
ia the year before the navigation of the Trinity
o;encd. The firstboat that wentnp was the Jack
Hays and she left here oa the b'tli of December
aud was gone five weeks. Had the rise m that
river taken place as early as usual the ti. hole of the
above 'am oanTof '11;735 bales wonld have" Wen-
'shipped to tills place. This was very little over
half a crop. Hie planting force of tho Trinity
valley has been doubled by emigration during the
past ten or twelve months. Iu addition to this the
old plantations have been greatly enlarged and
planters have prepared for a larger crop of cotton
than ever before. 'From these causes we might
safely calculate that the amount of cotton for this
year vt ill double that of last year even if the sea-
son is no better. Hut with a favorable season ths
year's crop cannot be less than about three times
as much as the crop of ISoO.
The amount of shipments Af mcrchandiza up
the Trinity have greatly exceeded the downward
freight. Thisof course was-attributabb lo the.!
emigration which must reuiregood for consump-
tion before it can add to the ainoutit of our exports.
Itisouly a year or two sines the trade of the
Trinity attracted any attention. Laalyear which
was a vcryaroniblo season the shipments to this
port amounted to hut about 5000 or (1000 bales
and the year previous to but about 3000. The
great and rapid increase of this trade is now
placed beyond all doubt and some preparations arel
necessary to meet it. As yet we have heaitl of no
positive arrangements fur remavuig the bar at the
mouth of that river which constitutes one of the
most critui obstacles. There is however ano-
ther difficulty arising from the narrowness of the
river and the overhanging trees in the Upper Tri-
nity by which the larger class of boats are pre-
vented from ascending higher lha:i ?daguoIia or
Pine Dluff Prom this causa a large amount of
goods sent up as long ng- a last December and
January for Pino Bluff Taos Porter's Illufi &c
were laedtd at Magnolia aaJ Navarro where they
still remain greatly to the disappointment of alj
parties and involving a loss of thousands of dollars.
Tpmtet this serious difficulty Mr. McCorinick
has entered into arrangements with the planters
above Pine IMuff to build a new boat expressly for
the upper Trinity of light draft and carrying about
-500 bales so as to be able lo ma'tc trips as high as
PortcrU Ulufl' and perhaps as high as Dallas.
Mr. McCormick expects soon to go on to tho North
to superintend the building. All such enterprises
have our wannest wishes for their success
Tuc Sitrejii: Cou.it axd tiic Uvxi;. The
Houston Telegraph says that improper motives ar-
attrihutcd by some to the Judges of the Supreme
Court for delaying their decision on the Bank
cascso long and adds that H is indeed singular
that the decision has been delayed so long; butt
the character of oar jud res precludes tha idea that
they have been influenced by any olhsr motives
than adestre to decide fairly and impartially."
Now this is the first time that we have seen tho
slightest imputation of any improper motive foi
i me J;!jy.IIoT3ca gives ni ndujIraWa Hie;. true
tion or this adroit mada of impeaching character
and motives by a charitable cffjrt ta defend against
imputations never before made. However llu Te-
legraph goes on to forestall the decision of the
court in accordance of course with the wishes of
the editor. Should the decision be otherwise the
intimation of improper motives will probably be
relived. We copy as follows :
We understand however that the JeciMon has
been made and its soon as the Court adjourns in
the eastern district the decision may he pab!ihed.
iUe know that many are quite anxious to know
what the decision will be. We can hardly en-
tertain o doubt upon the subject as we had an op-
portunity of hearing tho opinion of two of the
Judges upon this very question when the subject
of the legality of this bank was pn wilted to the
Convention. Unless the opinion of those Judges
have undergone a change tho decision will be ad-
verse to the bank. It is scarcely probable how-
ever that any damages will he assessed as the
charter having been grauled previous to the forma-
tion of the Constitution and the question whether
it contravened its provisions never having been de-
cided by a competent tribunal the parties could not
be subjected to a penalty until this questitTn h'td
been settled. The decision of the Supreme Court
must operate iu the m'attcr as a law and take ef-
fect only from the date of its pub'ication.
Our neighbor of the Civilian seems to have made
a dead set upon Gov. Bel!. Almost every number
of his paper of late contains some attack upon
the Governor wrought up invariably out of the
same threadbare materials. Iu this terrible on
slaught cur neiglibcr has been left pretty much to
himself. Solitary and alone he is rolling that ball-
Hut he has the consolation lo anticipate that in
the event of a victory he will have nil the glory
to himself. Tlic-serioiis charge i that the ( over-
nurs memory was at ftult In making a quotation.
Tliis was undoubtedly a grievous offence and grie
vously should he be made to answer it. The of-
fence was no doubt the greater from the fict that
thecrrorcould have been so easily cotrectcd by re-
ference to a' book that is we hope in almost every
But tlfC-qnestion i w?t i ibiintureof this of
fence J -Is this act of haste or-carelessness evi
dence of business in capacity or a want of pitriot-
ism? Or shall it be brought under the head of
treason aud be construed as an offence again the
peace the dignity and the sovereignty of the State?
It is admitted that Gov. Hell has given some fifteen
years of his life to tho service of Texas: having
been almost constantly engaged in repelling the
enemies of the country. Uut all this cannot ex-
cuse him for offendi&g 'against our neighbor's re-
fined taste in criticism. By an erroneous quota-
tion he has occasioned some amusement lo editors
and this has iutlicted a very deep wound on the
sensitive feelings of the Civilian. Such a wouud
as this cannot be atoned for by all the Mexicans
and Indians be has ever killed in defence of his
country. Gen. Scott's hasty plate of soup' is
another instance of carelessness offending against
good taste and in I'ke manner gave occasion for
much laughter aud ridicule all over the country ;
but then Gen. Scott was not a Texan and our
neighbor did not therefore take it so much to heart.
AH the world and the rest of mankind" laughed
at this expression of Gen. Taylors; and we sup-
pose Gen. Taylor's reputation must have suffered
seriously with that clos3 of critics to which our
neighbor belongs who attach so much importance
to slight verbal inaccuracies. We do not refer to
these illustrious examples for the purpose of exten-
uating much less of justify iug Gov. Delfs offence
which is of course very flagrant. Tho last number
of the Civilian rc-asscrts its previous charge and
proclaims in the most positive terms that Gov.
Dell did actually commit an error of memory in
quoting a passage of'Scripture ! I This is also de
nounced as sacrilegious."
Now as our neighbor expressly informs us that
lie considers It "neither pleasant nor profitable to
be laughed at" we hope his charges against our
Governor will be read with all due seriousness.
Texas Deaf and Dumb I.sTiTtnio From a
letter received from a friend residing in Moutgom-
TeTy-COam7i-Te-team ibai Mgre T T: A- KyVl
Harris have at their own private expense- erected
a building there in which they have opened a
school with a view lo making it a permanent In-
stitution for the education of deaf mutes. Such a
humane and laudable enterprise cannot fail to re-
ceive the approbation and encouragement of every
friend of humanity iu our State ; and wc trust it
may receive the attention of our ensuing State
Legislature in the tangible shnps of an ample ap-
propriation for its maintenance.
The Messrs. Harris' are themselves deaf mules.
They are natives of Mississippi and sons of the
late Col. Guwen Harris of Drazoria Texas.
Thcircducatiou is represented as thorough hav-
ing been received at the famous Deaf and Dumb
Institution in the city of IVdadelphh "where
they remained between seven and eight years ex-
clusively devoted to the studies pursued at thu In-
stitution." TheirTecommcnlations and references are of
tho highest and most respectable character; and
from the evidence before ast we do not hesitate to
give it as our opinion that tli'y are gentlemen well
qualified in every wiy to successfully conduct
such au Institution.
33" About twenty five English emigrants ar.
rived by the " 31 aria Burl" on the Clli Inst. on
their way to Milam county. They came to New
Orleans by tho "John Garrow" aud have been
met here by Capt. McKenzIc superintendant of
the Emigration and Colonization Society who ar-
rived on the 7th by tho " Farmer." They are
to leave to-day by way of Houston accompanied
by Capt. MclCcnzie who is to conduct them to
their new homes.

Mr- IticniRDso: Accompanj In thu I send you such
items from the Ceiius Returns of Galveston county as I
suppose "A ill be inot interesting to ) our readers and the
people generally. If any other information pertaining to
tho census should be desired it ia embraced la the six
schedules of the original and can bo learned by ri fercr.ee
to them now on fde In tho Clerlts office of this counly.
3Iy opinion is that in the enumeration made I hao
embraced every individual In the cocity liable to be
numbered; and sVrald any one suppose himself It ft out
that fact can be learned by referenco to a Jioofc alphabeti-
cally arranged and Ion with tho Deputy Marshal Mr. Dan-
iel Marston Jr.
I thlafc that this clfy never contained a trrcater number
of permanent residents than there are now in lis limits.
and I com j to this conclusion from tho fntt in my Imita-
tion around it I found only four houses siitable for per-
sona to live In but what wero occupied nsdw-llimjs ; and
the number of famillea exceeds that of tiki dwellings by
.s before stated I have little doubt but tint if the enu-
meration bad been mado up to this time it 4)utd amount
to 500 More ; nnd having kept a memorandum of those
livtii.; here not subject to be numbered I will as soon as
Igetmoro leisure make out nliat and give itlo you so
that tho precise number will bo known.

Later from the Kio Gramlo
Tae steamer Yacht Capt. Wilson arrived here
yesterday direct from Craztis Santiago.
Tiie following is an extract from a letter re-
ceived from Brownsville dated April 2Sth :
"There has been another difficulty between tho
people of Iloma and tho Mexican guard opposite
in relation 10 the exportiug of some hides from
Mexico. Some few shots were fired tnd a red
flaj hoisted on both sides of tho river nnd a war
of extermination declared by both parties; but I
imagine it will not (although some of the steam-
boat captains thinks it may) slop up thn Rio
Grande by throwing in their dead. One man was
killed by the Mexicans before the troops of the
Republic of Rami made any resistance but then
at the smell of blood liko the caged Hon turned
loose did they rush to the charge and with a few
rounds from their artillery and small arms scatter-
ing to thj four winds the forces of their enemy
without IrJliiig or wounding a vtan.
Hut seriously the Mexicans are fast forgetting
their late thrashings and a feeling of envy and
malice is growing up in tho breast of every low
peon or highwayman which hy the better class
is not at "all partaken of which will soon have to
be rooted out of them and the sooner it is done the
better 'lite Rio Grande cannot remain the boun-
dary and jieace be preserved. Geographically and
politically it Is the wrong boundary which I could
plainly show if I had time to discuss ihc subject.
I tell you now that ere long it will be changed.
The tiling must take place and will."
In addition to the foregoing letter we have been
permitted to copy tho fo!b whig from a merchant
of llama to a gentleman of this city :
Uoai. April 23d 1851.
"A little war occurred the other day between
this and the other side of the river. A few of our
citizens started lo cross the river to a dance a few
nights Since and when they got half way across
tho "river they were fired upon by the Mexican
soldiers without cause cr rovicatiou (wo of our
citizens being wou uded f We then commenced
.firing 011 ihem with ours rillcs nnd six-shooters
Iro.n this side or the riTer and j drove them from
the bank -and then" wo "opened upon them with
our six pound cannon loaded with buckshot. After
that all was quiet asthe-Mcxicans all ran oil.
On day before yesterday they received a strong
reinforcement and commenced cutrenchiiig. Wo
wrote over to them to attack it they wMied and
their reply was that it was 'n matter to be settled
between the tno Governments ; und thu. euded
the battle of Uoma.
There has been a vistodor (inspector of the cu--tcm
In usLOdSststing the cret m houses on t"ie other
side and he has been examining the books of nil
the collectors and recovering from them or the
parties interested the amounts due as you know
goods were admitted at 3d per cent and the Mex-
ican taritTTs-Tii per cent so he deducts the 30
from 75 and strikes a balance; in consequence he
finds all in arrears who passed goods. And those
merchants who live on the other sido have been
the sufi'erers. For in3ianco lUpheal Aldcrette oT
the firm of Milchel Aldcrette fc Co had hi
property confiscated; and Bruno Losanno was
brought iu debt 10000 in consequence of winch
the latter has left for his residence in G.vderittaso
they canuot catch him. Aldcrette lias left lo settle
a stock farm in Tcxus.
There is a very disordered state of affairs on the
0 t!ier side. AU is despotic mid the ciiit is sub-
servient to the military. Teople are starving for
the want of corn as iu many places it is worth four
dallarsper bushel. Towns have become deserted
33 if by magic; and peoplo hare taken to the
woods to live on the maguay roots. If they don't
raise any crop this year there w ill be no goods
sold for years to come as there will be no money
left in the country. Mexico is in a worse condi-
tion than ever Ireland was in her darkest days."
It is said that thesteamcr Atlantic had on

signed to the agents .of the Rothschild. It is

Letter from Xassathusctts
Rostu.y Mass. April 20 1831-
Vricnd Richardson : I have been in this ancient
and interesting city for several day and have had
time to look about me aud make myself some-
what acquainted with the many spots that his-
torical association nud reminiscence have endeared
to tho American people. Also to ascertain some-
Ihing of the feeling 111 the State upan slavery and
the fugitive slave lav..
The late excitement caused by the trial and
surrender of the fugitnc slave Sims has pased
its maximum. The law and order party of the
city arc in the majority (although Mr. Webster
was refused Faneuil Hall by the Mayor and Al-
derman) while the citizeus of all classes and oc-
cupations are opposed to slavery and think it a
political social and moral evil repugnant to the
American doctrines of .freedom and equality. Yet
they look upon the fugitive slave law as the law
of the land and because it t the law they arc
disposed to see it prevail. The majority of the peo-
ple of the towns and country of this State regard
the law as uuconatitutionaratid oppressive. And
where It can be succesfully resisted they think it
right to resist it. And they arc determined upon
Most of the merchants and mechanics of Bos
ton and part of the manufacturers arc opposed to
this slavery agitation ; they are disposed lo let us
alone to manage onr domestic 'affairs at home as
we please ; because interest has enlightened
them. "They knew full will thettheSouth afibrds
them a market for their shoes hats woollen and
cotton goods etc.; besides furnishing them with
the raw cotton rice tobacco etc.; thereby giving
employment to their shipping and labor to a large
and meritorious part of their population who would
without this aid of the South bo thrown out of
employment possibly to starve. The loss to Bos-
ton by the withdrawal of sourthern trade in con-
sequence of the slavery agitation has been t stima-
led by some as high as 3000(100 within tho last
twelve months. They feel this.
When the Southerner crosses Mason and Dix-
on's Line he is met with many warm assurances
cf affection for the South from the merchants and
tradesmen cf the cities. As soon as you are discov-
ered lo be a Southerner yon arc approached with
the declarations: that the slavery agitation is at an
cnJ and that the constitution will ha sustained ;
that Seward John Van Buren and others cannot
survive the storm of indignation that is rising up
against them. To all tlm I reply to you that
they may be Fiuccrc in what they say ; but I fear
that they are sadly mistaken ; and that opr-osi-tion
lo slavery in the North has become with the
mass of the people a religous and moral senti-
ment and that it is the growing disposition of the
people of the North to rid our government "of
the plague spot of slavery" as soon as it can be
done in a legal way without violence. There are
many very many good men at the North n ho
respect the position of the South and would
help us if they could but as often as they throw
themselves into the breach just so often arc they
snapping tnccrdi-of tbcjr piht'cnt rtj'enoc.
Moderate even .as has been Webster's course
nothing but his past services his towering intellect
and his admission that Congress had the right (bul
it was inexpedient to use it) to legislate upon sla-
very iu the territories saved him fioin repudiation
by his Stale of Massachusetts.
Rusk our noble Senator has given Seward " a
dig" that the higher-law men do not relish. No
man stands higher in the Senate than Gen. Rusk
as a man without fear and without reproach.
Houston has friends in tho North and West. I
think his location may operate against him for
the Presidency. lie is rathet too far South for
tho North and West aud ho is not fully trusted by
the Son l!i on the slavery question. Buchanan
Dallas Cass and Douglass are also spoken of for
the Presidency. Should the West not succeed in
getting Cass they will go in their might for Doug-
lass. And " the mighty West" will bj heard this
time when she speaks. Scott is growing fast so
is Crittenden. The contest iu the Whig ranks for
the Presidency will be between tlieso lo great
men and Mr. Fillmore ; and posjibly Mr. Clay
and Mr. Webster. Mr. Webster is here. You
will hear from me again shortly before I return to
Richmond May 3 1851.

present session in reference to agricultural interests;
and inveighed against their conduct for refusing to
relieve the distress which they ackuowUdged lo
exist disappointing the hopes which the farmers
had been led lo expect by tho expressions of the
Royal speech. He intimated a ll-position to a
repeal of the wmdowjnx ; and avowed his determi-
