THE HUDDERSFIELD CHRONICLE, SATURDAY, AUGUST 10, 1850. FOREIGN INTELLIGENCE. AMERICA. By the Hibernia, which Sanday, f the interior; Bates, of n. of North Carolina, secretary of the navy Crittenden, of Kentucky, attorney-general; and of New York, postmaster-general. The New York Tribume [Tribune] says These are all men of ample political experience and eminent ability. They will compose a cabinet entitled to the public confidence, for its know ledge of the interests of tho country, its weight of per- [personal] sonal [tonal] character, and its sound whig principles. The choice of the President is open to serious criticism, on account of its bearing on the prosperity of the whig party. Discussions Im [In] Concress,-Affairs [Congress,-Affairs] in congress had exhibited few new features. On the 17th ult., an able and elaborate speech was delivered in the senate, pre- [previously] viously [obviously] to his elevation into office, by Mr. W on the slavery ti opposing the admission of New Mexico into the Union as a state at present. Subse- [Subs- Subsequently] quently [frequently] Mr. Benton's resolution, allowing a larger terri- [territory] tory to the state, was rejected; and on a later day Mr. Clay again advocated his compromise bill. The House of Representatives bad rejected the claim of the delegate of New Mexico to assume a seat in its chamber; the rejection being carried, with a majority of 11, by a coa- [Co- coalition] lition [Lotion] of the slave and democratic party. Miscellaneous proceedings in either house are uninteresting. The Hon. W. R. King had been selected to preside over the senate, vice the President of the Republic. On the 22nd ult., the President transmitted to congress a brief message on the seizure of Tigre [Tiger] Island. Tue Exprerpitiox.-The [Expressions.-The] American prisoners at Cuba have been released by the Spanish authorities, and are expected toarrive [to arrive] soon in the United States. A correspondent of the Havana Diario [Diary] de la Marino gives an account of the manner in which the authorities at Segua [Sugar] la Grande had deterinined [determined] to repel General Lopez and his army, had they reached that place. It appears that in that town there are 2,200 beehives. These were to be placed on the road, and, at the approach of the invading host, the hives were to be overturned, and the bees sallying forth would attack the advancing foe, and by their merciless stings would effectually deprive him of the power of resistance. It was calculated that in this manner 5,000 Americans could be put to flight ; while the cunning Spaniards would look on and enjoy the sport. The correspondent says the invaders little know the preparations that have been made for thei. [the] We are decidedls [decidedly] of that opinion ourselves-New Orleans Picayune, Destructive Storm at New Thursday night, the 19th ult. New York, and indeed the whole Atlantic coast, was visited by the most terrific storm of wind and rain ever experienced at this time of the year. The wind was from the south-east, and blew for twelve to fifteen hours with unabated fury. Immense destruc- [district- destruction] tion [ion] was the consequence, but singularly enough there vas [as] little loss of life. A Philadelphia ship, named the Elizabeth, from Leghorn, was wrecked near the entrance of New York harbour, and cight [eight] out of the twenty-three of the ship's company, including five passengers, lost their lives. The statue of Calhoun, just completed by Powers, for the state of South Carolina, was on board this vessel, and is destroyed. A freshet had occurred on the Schuylkill river, and seventeen persons drowned. Tue Case oF Proresson [Professor] committee zon [on] pardons, to whom was referred the petition of John W. Webster, a convict under sentence of death, praying & commutation of the punishment awarded to him, have presented their report, in which, after stating the facts of the case, they say The palliating facts and cir- [circumstances] cumstances [cum stances] set forth in the confession have not been so confirmed by other evidence and circumstances, as to form a proper and sufficient basis for executive interfer- [interfere- interference] ence. [once] To this painful conclusion the committee have unanimously come. The committee, therefore, respect- [respectfully] fuliy [fully] report, that they cannot, consistently with what they conceive their duty, recommend a commutation of the sentence, in the case of John W. Webster, as prayed for in his petition. Nothing now remains for the com- [committee] mittee, [matter] in the discharge of this painful duty, but to advise your excellency in determining upon a time for 'the execution, and they name Friday, the 30th day of August next, as the day; and recommend to your excel- [excellency] lency [ency] to decide upon that day as the time for the execu- [exec- execution] tion [ion] of John W. Webster. This report was accepted by the governor and council of the state of Massachu- [Massacre- Massachusetts] setts, Mr. Copeland, of Norfolk, being the only member who voted in the negative. The death warrant was accordingly read to Professor Webster, on the 22nd ult. when the culprit was perfectly calm, and said God's will bedone [done] I am reconciled to my fate. By later advices [advice] received ria [air] the Atlantic steamer, which arrived at Liverpool on Wednesday, we learn that the Hon. Daniel P. King, member of Congress, had died from an attack of dysentery, contracted at Wash- [Washington] The same vessel also brings intelligence from Havannah [Hannah] to the effect that the authorities had liberated many of the prisoners connected with the Lopez expe- [exe- expedition] dition. [edition] Ten persons were detained on board the Spanish 4 Soberana, [Siberian] upon the plea that they were the officers of the expeditionary vessels, and, therefore, liable to punishment. It was understood, however, that they vould [could] eventually be given up. New York, Jury 27. The cotton market continued active. 10,200 bales were sold since the departure of the last stcamer, [steamer] at c. to c. advance in price the stock in all hands was esti- [est- estimated] -mated at 70,000 bales.

On the 20th ult., the reporters at the Legislative withdrew in consequence of one of their nuiaber [number] being called to the bar of the house, and cen- [cent- censured] sured [cured] for requesting a member conversing near the gallery not to interrupt him. The press had resolved not to report the proceedings of the house in future. CANADA. Torosto, [Trust] July 18.-The members of the ministry propose to reduce their own official salaries to the fol- [following] lowing rates -The the two attorneys-general, 3,600 dollars each; provincial secretary, commissioner of pub- [public] lic [li] works, and receiver-general, 3,000 dollars each the twe [we] solicitors-general, 2,400 dollars each; assistant com- [Commissioners] toissioners [missioners] of public works, 2,600 dollars per annum. The whole annual cost of governing Canada, includ- [include- including] ing receiving and disbursing the revenues, is 250,000, or 3s. 4d. per head of the whole population. 'The sui [su] paid for the civil government of the pro- [province] vince [since] is 32,251. This includes the salary of the governor-general. The remaining 24,500 is distributed among some sixty or seventy officials, two of whom get 1,100 a year, four 1,000, one 750, and from 650 downward. TREMENDOUS SToRM.-The [Storm.-The] Toronto Glohe [Globe] says On Friday afternoon, the 19th ultimo, the townships of Brock, Scott, and Reach, were visited by the most terri- [terrific] fic [fi] storm ever remembered, and not inferior in fury tothe [tithe] hurricanes of the tropical climates. For the width of about a mile its course was marked by the entire over- [overthrow] throw of the forest trees-houses and barns were swept away like children's card-houses-the growing crops on whole clearings entirely destroyed-cattle carried off the ground, whirled round in the ai i i i t to the earth, in the air, and killed in their CALIFORNIA. San Francisco has been devastated fire. Three hundred houses have been bi property valued at five millions of dollars destroyed. This is the third fire which has occurred within a few months. The Pacific news of the 14th says -- Another destructive fire visited our city yesterday morning, lay- [laying] ing four entire blocks, with the exception of eicht [eight] buildings, in ashes. The destruction of property has been immense. At this moment, vast piles of lumber are biazing [blazing] furiously, although all the buildings in the neighbourhood were consumed hours ago. The fire originated in the kitchen of the Sacramento House, between Clay and Sacramento-streets. The present disaster is a most stunning blow, people pause in their operations until they thoroughly consider what is best to be done. It visited a quarter of the city which has been the main depot of commerce, and swept away far more property than on former occasions, a large propor- [proper- proportion] tion [ion] of which is on consignment, the loss of which falls heavily upon distant shippers, by another serious We scarcely know which valley, the San Joaquin or the Sacramento, has sent out the richest speck but the gold comes from both regions in sufficient quanti- [quantity- quantities] ties to prove that there was but little extravagance in found, that the ore is inexhaustible.

By way of San Francisco, California, we have intelli- [until- intelligence] gence [Gents] from New Zealand to the 27th of March. A number of whalers had been lost by the icebergs. Four vessels were lading at Auckland for San Francisco. The Euro) inhabitants were in daily expectation of a fresh breaking out of hostilities between the contending native parties. Some of the tribes were making at- [attempts] tempts to enforce a recurrence to old heathen habits, which, through the instrumentality of foreigners, were checked. 3 7 SPAIN. uk mean The Duke and Duchess of Montpensier [Mountains] left for Seville on the Ist [Its] instant. It had been resolved that the Cortes should be dissolved, but the day of dissolu- [dissolve- dissolution] tion [ion] had not been named. A postal treaty between Spain and Portugal had been duly ratified. RUSSIA. The Emperor Nicholas has issued a ukase ordering seven men in each 1,000 of the population of the western provinces of Russia, and ten in each 1,000 in some other provinces, to be raised for thearmy. [them] The population of these districts is computed at 31,000,000, whereby an addition of about 180,000 men will be made to the already formidable military force of Russia. Tue Burninc [Burning] or Cracow.-Cracow, [Crack.-Crack] the heart of Poland, is in ashes. On the 18th at mid-day, the fire broke cut almost simultaneously at five different points in the city. Episcopal Palace, of the two finest churches, the Dominician [Dominion] and the Franciscan, the mnemory [memory] alone remains. Thousands of persons, once in easy circumstances, are now enduring all the sufferings of without a roof to cover them, or a place in which to find shelter. The fire-engines of the city, twelve in number, were taken possession of, and con- [conveyed] veyed [eyed] to the citadel, and it was only late on the second day of the conflagration that the government authorities could be prevailed upon to give them up, in order to render assistance to the burning city. ee IRELAND. Douncannon [Announced] Erection. Lord Northland has been re-elected without opposition. FatuHer [Father] have been received from the apostle of temperance by his brother, dated 30th June, from the hot springs, Arkansas, in which he states his health is very much improved.-Cork Reporter. CaRRYING [Carrying] AWAY Crops By Nicut.- [Cut.- Cut] The Wezford [Waterford] Independent states that, during the past week, the cut- [cutting] ting and carrying away crops by night has actively commenced in the neighbourhood of Newtonbarry. [Newton] In one instance, the produce of six acres of oats was car- [carried] ried [red] away from the lands cof [of] Oldtown, [Old town] of which the Rev. J. N. Griffin is the landlord. Large parties of the pea- [peasantry] santry [sanitary] assemble at midnight, and soon clear the corn fields. In some cases the police interfere, but only for the purpose of taking down the names of the persons engaged in this midnight work. Protection at a Discount.-The intelligent Quaker, whose notes on the state of Ireland occasionally appear in the Northern Whig, has -ust [st] taken a tour through Ulster In all the districts, he says, through which I travelled, and among all the persons with whom I conversed, I met with none who sought for protective duties on corn as a remedy for existing distress. Most certainly the farmers and traders that I met in the north of Ireland do not wish to fall back again on the corn-laws. MURDER OF AN UNDER AGENT. A person named Pike, an under agent of Mr. Cassidy, of Monasterevan, [Monastery] was brutally murdered on Saturday, near Birr, [Burr] in the King's County. He was to have served several eject- [enactments] ments [rents] in the next week. He exchanged shots with one of the assassins; but the other shot him through the back, and struck him a violent blow on the forehead. He has left a wife and family of four children. The body was found on the high road at ten o'clock on Sa turday [Saturday] morning. The ill-fated man had respectable connections in Dublin. Mayo Evection.-PetirTion [Election.-Petition] aGaInsT [against] THE RETURN or Mr. Hiccixs.-We [hiccups.-We] believe it is not premature to announce that it has been resolved upon by the friends of Mr. Butt to present a petition against the return of Mr. Ousley [Isle] Higgins for the county of Mayo. The grounds upon which the petition is founded leave little-indeed, if we are truly informed-no doubt of its success. We may, therefore, possibly have a new ection [action] for Mayo before five weeks are passed.-Dublin Herald. A Reapy [Ready] Bripe.-A [Ripe.-A] young female in this neighbour- [neighbourhood] hood, some time ago, in reference to a trivial mishap at a wedding, remarked that when her time came, she would have everything ready. Undoubtedly she had for when her marriage-day arrived, she gave birth to a child in the morning, was married in the afternoon, and had the child babtized [baptised] as soon as the marriage ceremony was over.-Montrose Review. ------- - - Her MaseEsty's [Majesty's] Visit To ScoTLanD. [Scotland] -It is e that, drring [during] her Majesty's progress to Scotland, in com- [company] pany [any] with his Royal Highness Prince Albert and the royal children, after the prorogation of parliament, the Queen will honour two of the cabinet ministers, Lord Carlisle and Sir George Grey, with a visit, staying a night at Castle Howard, Yorkshire, the seat of the Earl of Carlisle, and remaining a night also at Falloden, [Fallen] Ainwick, [Alnwick] Northumber- [North umber- Northumberland] land, the seat of the home secretary, Sir George Grey.- [Grey] Observer. CALIFORNIAN CoTTON.-We [Cotton.-We] have been favoured by our friend, J. H. Elliott and Cc., Gravier-street, [Grave-street] with a sample of cotton grown in Upper California, which is a great curiosity. The cotton is of a very long staple, and of excellent quality. The bolls are large, and the cotton of a fine colour. no idea that such cotton could be grown in California, and it only serves to show that the country possesses a variety of riches in her soil.-New Orleans Picayune, July 7. Lord Gough visited Edinburgh on Monday, on which occasion the Lord Provost, Magistrates, and Town Counc'l [Council'l] took the opportunity of presenting the gallant General with the freedom of the city, asa mark of respect for h's distinguished services to his country. Western Circuit, EXETER.-SECOND TRIAL OF THE Brrps.-On [Bros.-On] Monday, Robert Contrice [Countries] Bird and his wife, who were tricd [tried] at the last March assizes for the wilful murder of their servant, Mary Ann Parsons, by flogging and ill-treating her until she died, but who were acquitted under the memorable di-ections [di-sections] of Mr. Justice Talfourd, [Balfour] were again put upon their trial, charged with beating and wounding the deceased. The case was again gone into at considerable length. The verdict was adverse to the pri- [pro- prisoners] soners [Somers] who are detained in custody, sentence being deferred until after the jndges [judges] have considered a reserved point arising out of the trial. At thedinner [the dinner] given to Mr. Robert Stephenson in Newcastle last week, a letter from the Earl of Carlisle was read, stat- [stating] ing that the Queen and Prince Albert would open the Ber- [Be- Berwick] wick Railway on the 29th of August. REPRESENTATION OF LAMBETH.-The nomination for the borough of Lambeth took place on Monday morning, at 10 o'clock, on Kennington Common. About 1,200 per- [persons] sons were present during the proceedings. After a short address from Mr. Onslow, the returning officer, in favour of fair play and good humour, Mr. Harvey, draper, of Westminster-road, came forward to propose Mr. W. Wil- [Williams] liams [liam] as a fit and proper person to represent the borough of Lambeth in Parliament. Mr. Doulton [Dalton] seconded the nomi- [nomination] nation. Mr. W. Knott proposed, and Mr. Willis seconded the nomination of Mr. Paimer. [Palmer] The third candidate, Sir Charles Napier, was nominated by Mr. C. Evans, and se- [seconded] eonded [ended] by Mr. Miller. No other candidate presenting him- [himself] self, Mr. Williams addressed the electors in an effective speech, and was received with loud cheering and congratu- [congratulate- congratulatory] latory [story] remarks from the majority of the meeting, during which he said he would not have asked for their suffrages if he did not desire to do still more for the service of his country to aid the working classes. For the thirteen years he sat in parliament, he had done more in conjunction with that true friend of the people, Mr. Hume, to keep the fingers of the tax-gatherer out of the pockets of the people than any man in it and he appealed to the electors, whe- [the- whether] ther [the] they would accept him or the mere idler and pensioner who consumed those taxes The hon. gentleman, amidst great applause, criticised the claims of the other candidates, and was very severe upon the gallant admiral, Sir Charles Napier, whom he designated as a pare hunter, a pensioner, and a traitor to his country. Mr. Palmer was received with the most unmistakable disapprobation, and, amid great confusion, expressed his concurrence in Mr. Hume's motion for househcli [Limehouse] suffrage. He would give to every man who occupied a house, or portion of a house, for a certain period, a right to vote. to that, he demanded for the poor man the protection of the ballot. He also advocated economy, and would support an adjustment of taxation, so as to throw the burden on the shoulders of those best able to bear it. If they sent him to parliament he would stand up for a modification of the income-tax, and for the aboli- [able- abolition] tion [ion] of the window tax. He also thought the poor law ought to be revised. Respecting the Sunday Trading Bill, he must say that he was in favour of any measure which had for its object and result the proper observance of the Sabbath and the relief of the artisan and labourers. He was opposed to the funds of the state being granted for the maintenance of any particular faith. And in conclusion appealed to the meeting, as a fair and impartial jury. Sir Charles Napier then essayed to address the meeting, but was received with a burst of groaning and other vocal atnoyances [annoyance] which rendered it impossible for the gallant admiral to say one word which could reach their ears. After a time he obtained a hearing, and said that whilst he was in favour of legitimate retrenchment, he was not pre- [prepared] pared to rob the creditor, by a wholesale reduction of expenditure. He was in favour of a repeal of the win- [window] dow [down] tax. The gallant admiral, after referring to his efforts in support of an efficient naval establishment, expressed his approval of vote by ballot but, he did not think the le were In a position to enjoy universal suffrage. But Bei [Be] ieved [grieved] that, with a sound and good education, they would soon be fit for it. Sir Charles then spoke on other subjects of general political interest, and said that he thought religion s not be a bar to a seat in parliament. And in conclusion, after stating that he was opposed to the tion [ion] of church and state, expressed his determination to go to the poll. Onthe [Other] show of hands being taken, it was declared in favour of Sir Charles Napier, and a poll was demanded by Mr. Williams and Mr. Palmer. The polling took place on Tuesday, and at its close the numbers were Williams, 3,834 Nee 1,182; Palmer, 585. Majority for Mr. Williams, 2,652. Mr. Williams addressed a few words of thanks to The other candidates did not present themselves. bo ake [ale] in a farm-house inthis [in this] county, Ww recei' [receive] years insisted on returning per cont,-Eddoue's [cont,-Doubled's] Journal, THE NEW CABINET AT WASHINGTON. (From the New York Herald. ) Saturday last, and confirmed by the Senate in Executive Session - THE CABINET. State-Daniel Webster, Massachusetts, T -Thomas Corwin, [Crown] Ohio. Interior-James A. Pearce, Maryland. Navy-William A. Graham, North Carolina. War-Edward Bates, Missouri. Attorney-General-J. J. Crittenden, Kentucky. Postmaster-General-Nathan K. Hall, New York. The nomination of each member of the same havin [having] been confirmed by the Senate, a brief notice of the dic [Dick] tinguished [distinguished] individuals composing it, from such mate- [materials] rials as are now at our hands, will, doubtless, be accept- [acceptable] able to our readers. Of the Secretary of State, Daniel Webster, of Massa- [Massachusetts] chusetts, [chests] his world-wide fame and reputation as a states- [statesman] man render it unnecessary to say much. He is well known as a native of New Hampshire, born in 1782, and consequently is now sixty-eight years of age. Mr. Webster entered Congress asa member of the house from his native state in 1813, and represented the state four years; after which he removed to Boston. In 1823 he was chosen representative in Congress from that district of Massachusetts, continuing in that capa- [cap- capacity] city four years. In 1827 he was transferred to the Senate of the United States, and continued in that body fourteen years-viz., until 1841, when he was appointed Secretary of State by President Harrison. Mr. Critten- [Written- Crittenden] den, of Kentucky, being also a member of that cabinet, is again a colleague of Mr. Webster in the new cabinet, After the quarrel of President Tyler with the whig party in August, 1841, Mr. Webster refused to join his colleagues in the Harrison Cabinet in resigning, but continued in Tyler's Cabinet until 1843, when he re- [resigned] signed. His most important act while Secretary of State was the negotiation with Lord Ashburton, on the part of Great Britain, of the treaty of Washington, in August, 1842, by which the long controverted question of the north-eastern boundary was settled. Notwith- [Not with- Notwithstanding] standing the dissatisfaction of some of the whigs [whig] with his course in remaining in the Tyler Cabinet, Mr. Web- [Webster] ster [ste] was, in 1845, again elected United States senator by the legislature of Massachusetts, in which position he has continued until the present time-his term of ser- [se- service] vice expiring in March next. It will thus be seen that Mr. Webster has served in both houses of Co about twenty-six years-viz., eight years in the House of Representatives and eighteen years in the Senate. The Secretary of the Treasury, Thomas Corwin, [Crown] of Ohio, is, we believe about 50 years of age. Rising from humble life, he became distinguished as a lawyer, and was elected a representative to Congress from the Warren district, in 1831; he continued a member of the house until 1840, when he was chosen Governor of Ohio in October of that year by a majority so large as to settle all doubts that Harrison would receive the vote of the State for President the following month. Mr. Corwin [Crown] continued Governor but two years, Wilson Shannon, his democratic predecessor, then succeeding him, in 1842. The whigs [whig] having a majority in the Legislature of Ohio in 1845, elected Mr. Corwin [Crown] United States' Senator to succeed Benjamin Tappan, [Tapping] democrat. His term as Senator therefore expires in March next. Mr. Corwin [Crown] has been long known in Congress as am able debater and an advocate of the whig measures of policy. In Ohio he is considered the most able and eloquent stump orator in the state. His speeches in Congress, although showing traits of eloquence and talent of a high order, have been considered as wanting in arrangement and condensation of point and ideas. What his peculiar talents as a financier may be remains to be seen, but he has always been an advocate of the protective system as applied to a tariff on imports. James A. Pearce, of Maryland, the Secretary of the Interior, is also about 50 years of age. He is a native of Kent county, in that state, and was elected a repre- [prepare- representative] sentative [sensitive] in Congress in 1835, again in 1837 and 1841, thus serving as a member of the house six years. In 1843 he was transferred to the Senate of the United States, and was re-elected at the expiration of his term in 1849; consequently, his present term does not expire until 1855. Mr. Pearce is a ready and eloquent debater, and second to but few of the whig senators in point of talent. Edward Bates, of Missouri, the Secretary of War, is a prominent member of the bar at St. Louis. He is, we believe, a native of Virginia, and during the Adminis- [Admin- Administration] tration [ration] of John Quincy Adams he was brought forward by the Hon. David Barton, then a colleague of Mr. Ben- [Benton] ton in the United States' Senate, and other friends of Adams, as a candidate for representative in Congress to succeed John Scott. There was much in Missouri at the time with Scott- [Scott] who was a friend of Mr. Clay-in consequence of his having given the vote of Missouri to Mr. Adams, in the election of President by the House, in 1825; and thus the singular result occurred of electing a friend of Mr. Adams to punish Mr. Scott, for having voted for the former as President, no Jackson or opposition candidate being in the field. Mr. Bates, as a member of Congress, supported the ad- [administration] ministration of Mr. Adams, during the two years he was in the House of Representatives but as the Adams' party were in the minority he had but few opportuni- [opportunity- opportunities] ties of distinguishing himself. On questions of national policy he was always found among the advocates of in- [internal] ternal [eternal] improvement and the protective system. Retir- [Retire- Retiring] ing to private life in 1829 Mr. Bates has continued to enjoy a high reputation in Missouri, but his political friends having been ever since ina minority in that state he had been comparatively unknown to the nation until the meeting of the Western Internal Improvement Con- [Convention] vention, [mention] at Chicago, in July, 1847, of which body Mr. Bates was chosen president. In a speech which he deli- [delivered] vered [vere] on taking the chair on that occasion he exhibited talents of a high order, and a comprehensive knowledge of the wants and capacities of the country, particularly with regard to works of internal improvement, which attracted much attention at the time, and in the opi- [pi- opinion] nion [noon] of the numerous members of the Convention at once stamped him as a statesman whose services would day be called for by the nation. Mr. Bates is, pro- [pro] i bably, [ably] over 55 years of age. ; William A. Graham, Secretary of the Navy, is a native of North Carolina; may be set down at fifty years of age or under, and represented that state in the United States' Senate two years, viz., from 1841 to 1843. In August, 1844, he was selected Governor of the State, for which office he was re-elected in 1846, retiring at the expiration of his second term, in January, 1849, His administration as Governor was popular, and he is con- [considered] sidered [resided] in North Carolina as one of the most talented. of the Whig leaders in that state. John J. Crittenden, of Kentucky, the Attorney- [Attorney general] General, is well known to the people of the United States as a statesman who has been long in public life. He is now, we should think, about sixty years old, and entered Congress as a member of the Senate in. 1847, serving them but two years, with Isham Talbot; for his colleague. From 1819 to 1835 he continued in the practice of his profession, as one of the first lawyers in Kentucky, residing principally at Frankfort, and. oeca- [ec- occasionally] sionally [finally] representing his county in the State Legisla- [legislate- Legislature] ture. [true] In 1835 he was again elected to the United States' Senate, and continued to serve in that. body until March, 1841, when he was appointed Attorney-General by President Harrison. On the outbreak of the whigs [whig] with John Tyler, in September, 1841, Mr Crittenden resigned, with the other members of the Cabinet, ex- [except] cept [Sept] Mr. Webster, and retired to prixate [private] life, from which, however, he was soon called by the legislature, to again take his seat in the United States' Senate in 1842. He was also elected senator for another term of six years, from March, 1843; but in 1848, having re- [received] ceived [received] the whig nomination for Governor of Kentucky, he retired from the Senate, and was elected by a large majority to the executive office he now holds, the term expiring in September, 1852. In conse- [cone- consequence] quence [Queen] of the understanding that Mr. Clay was not to be a candidate for President at the election of 1848, Mr. Crittenden, with other leading whigs [whig] of Kentucky and other states, became early committed to the support of General Taylor, and took measures to effect the nomi- [nomination] nation of the latter at the Whig National Convention Mr. Clay having subsequently changed his mind, and concluding to be a candidate before the convention, 2 bitter feud ensued between Mr. Clay and Mr. Critten- [Written- Crittenden] den and his friends; but Mr. Clay did not refuse to vote for Mr. Crittenden as governor, nor did the gover- [over- governor] nor interpose his influence to prevent the election of Mr. Clay to the United States' Senate. Still, we have never heard that the feelings of coldness and jealousy of Mr. Clay towards Mr. Crittenden have ever been removed since their rupture in 1848. But the whig party generally throughout the Union consider Mr. Crittenden as one of their strongest and most talented men, whose ability and skill as a statesmen, and pru- [pr- prudence] dence [dene] as a counsellor, have often been proved. Had not his duties to Kentucky forbidden him to accept, he would doubtless have formed one of General cabinet, as he was his most confidential friend and adviser. Nathan K. Hall, of New York, is the new Postmas- [Postmaster- Postmaster] ter-General. [te-General. -General] His age is about 43, and he was formerly the law partner of Mr. Fillmore, who, of course, knows him well, and doubtless is confident of his capacity to perform the onerous duties of Postmaster-General ac- [acceptably] ceptably, [acceptable] and that he will be a good man to keep his eye upon the Seward clique. Mr. Hall was, several years since, recorder of the city of Buffalo, and repre- [prepare- represented] sented [scented] that congressional district in the 30th congress- [Congress] 1847 to 1849. It may be remarked, by the way, that Buffalo is peculiarly honoured at this time, having from her citizens the President of the United States, a mem- [men- member] ber [be] of his cabinet, the minister to New Granada (Dr. Foote), and several other public officers appointed by the general government. The formation of this cabinet causes three vacancies in the senate, viz.-the seats of Mr. Webster, of Massa- [Massachusetts] chusetts; [chests] Mr. Pearce, of Maryland; Mr. Corwin, [Crown] of The governors of States have the power of appointing senators until the legislatures meet. The executives of Massachusetts and Ohio being whigs, [whig] will fill the vacan- [vacant- vacancies] cies [ties] from their own party of course. The governor of Maryland is a democrat, and thus the whigs [whig] lose 4 sena- [sea- Senate] We give below the names of the members of the new Cabinet they were sent in by President Fillmore on THE WAR IN SCHLESWIG-HOLSTELN. [SCHEDULES-HOLSTEIN] There is a report to-day that the Hanovorian [Hungarian] govern- [government] 'ment [men] has decided on sending troops to the assistance of the army of the Duchies, and that a great number, 'ag many as 2,000 are mentioned, are already on their way northward. The statement is much exaggerated as to the number, but it is evident, from the appearance here to-day of parties of men in the uniform of the 4th and 5th Hanoverian regiments, that the government is in some degree yielding to the pressure of popular agi- [ag- agitation] tation [station] on which the Duchies rely, and has already granted leave of absence to the private soldiers to an unusual extent. Of some of them, indeed, the term of service has expired, and they are free agents; but the fact that they bring their uniforms with them on quit- [quitting] ting their own regiments to enter those of Holstein sufficiently proves that their purpose is connived at by the government. The men state themselves that 500 will have passed through here by this evening on their way to Rendsburg. [Rends burg] They belong to the regiments gene- [generally] rally stationed in Stade, [State] Luneburg, [Lung] and Harburg. [Hamburg] They have mixed freely with the soldiers of the Prussian gar- [garrison] rison [risen] here, and in their conversation appear inclined to reproach the Prussians with not exhibiting an equal degree of zeal for the German cause. Withouta [Without] flagrant breach of military duty the Prussians cannot pursue such a course, and it remains to be seen whether, in face of the treaty of which the ink is searcely [scarcely] dry, Prussia will, directly or indirectly authorise a violation of it. Hanover, not having ratified it, is not so strictly bound to non-inter- [interference] ference, [France] though it is concluded in the name of the whole German Confederation. But it is one of the man confusions consequent on the shattered and divided state of that body, that Germany as a whole does not know whether it is at war or at peace with Denmark, and Denmark cannot foresee with how many or how few of the German States it may have to contend in this now bloody conflict. Except a report of another collision between two of the outposts, yesterday, at Brekendorf, [Broken] on the high road between Rendsburg [Rends burg] and Schleswig, [Schedules] in which it is stated three Danish prisoners were taken, there is no intelligence of any interest this morning from the seat of war. The armies retain their respective positions. (From the German papers. ) Kier, [Keir] August 2. The first thing that strikes a stranger on entering Holstein is the perfect tranquility [tranquillity] of the population. The telegraphic intelligence, which arrived here yester- [yesterday] day, of the audience which Heinrich Von Gagern [Garner] has had with the King at Berlin, upon his journey hither (he has not yet arrived) has not induced among these pru- [pr- prudent] dent people the smallest illusion. They know that even should a glittering beam of hope have sprung from this audience, as matters stand at Berlin the beam may warm for a moment but can never kindle a blaze. Scarcely any curiosity is, therefore, expressed as to what may have passed in this interview. The feeling that their cause must stand by itself has produced a singular effect upon these people. There is nothing like rage, fanaticism, presumption, or anything akin to swagger among them-nothing but an appearance of phlegmatic indifference, beneath which lurks the calm reflec [reflect] tiom [Tom] that things must take their course. I cannot describe by any other expression than chssic [chic] tranquillity the state of feeling which was apparezat [apparent] on my road from Altona [National] here. One would imagine that after the loss of a battle, such as that fought at Idstedt, [Institute] the whole coun- [con- country] try, which had just escaped conquest, would be thrown into a state of alarm, that old and youmg [young] would be seen either under arms or preparing for immediate flight, determined to stake all in the struggle or to proclaim a general saure [sure] qui [quin] peut. [put] At the kast [last] ene would Lave expected to find restless groups at every corner discuss- [discussing] ing the events of the day and imparting their hopes and apprehensions. Nothing of the sort was visible. What had happened they had already discussed, and what was expected to happen was sufficiently intelligible to all. The and the would do ali that was necessary to be done, and the fullesĂ© [fullest] confidence is placed in their patriotism and their discernment. With their pipes and eigars [Cigars] in their mouths they stand about the railway stations watching the trains, or waiting for the wounded who were shipped to Altona [National] ; but they ask for nonews. [News] The loss was great, but the dead are buried and blessed, and the wounded will be well cared for, and many ef them will perbaps [perhaps] be re- [restored] stored and return again to the field. The soldiers who are out on a short furlough, the railway junction.allow- [allowing] ing the surviving combatants of Idstedt [Institute] to visit their families, are seen amusing themselves, promenading, drinking, or joyfully returning to their quarters.. The Danes have beaten us, and we must of course return the compliment, seems to be written on every visage. There is nothing like tragical expression, foreboding looks, or the anxiety of doubt visible anywhere. Smok- [Smoke- Smoking] ing, singing, and joking are going on in all divections. [directions] The utmost that is to be seen.is the tearful eye and af- [afflicted] flicted. [inflicted] attitude of some wemen [women] taking leave of a son, a brother, or a sweetheart;,such grief is intelligible enough. We are involuntarily reminded that. among the ancestors of these people sprang up the fable of the Walhalla [Valuable] and its immortal. batile-loving [battle-loving] warriors. At first the patriots took the matter lightly, they called upon. Germany, Prussia, to. defend their cause for them -remained at their ease, and treated the Danes with contempt. Matters took a different turn, however. Germany abandoned them Austria sold or betrayed them Prussia trembling y. withdrew, faintly faliermg [Fleming] forth a wish that it might.go well with them and. the Holsteiners [Holstein] have learnt that the Danes are brave not merely from the proclamatiors [proclamation] of General Willisen, [Wilson] but by experience in the open field of battle.. The contempt in which the Danes were held is now inherited by the diplomacy of Europe. They stand alene, [alone] and hence the development cf their inward resources, their spirit of sacrifice, their endurance, and thcir [their] steadfast confidence in an honoursble [honourable] issue. Had this been a Stench, a Polish, or a Reman [Remain] movement, its enthusiasm would long since have exhausted itself. But it will be long yet ere the internal resources of these people are exhausted. Therefore-onght [Therefore-ought] we not to look om blindly rand stupidly it is a duty to our brethren, nay, more, 'itis [its] a duty to ourselves that we should assist them. The check sustained st Tdstedt [Tested] would long since have been repaired, had our losses-not in men but in. mate- [materiel] riel [Riel] been made up. AI this is now done, and. they have acquired since a cheerful spirit and a steadfast confidence in their cause aad [and] in their leaders-had they but those officers of which, even in the last battle, they were in want. On y about fifty qualified officers have there is no lack. But they will not accept them they are perhaps in the wrong, but they sare- [are- determined] determined that the battle. for their ancient rights and their ancient freedom, shali' [shall] be maintained pure With one hundred and fifty officers the army would now enter into the next contest stronger, more powerful, and more confident than at Idstedt, [Institute] and, were it to. tose that, it woukE [work] not be the last battle, or I am mistaken in the peop'p. [Pope'p] But if they delay longer-I allude to those who are summoned to become the leaders of a brave and noble army-diplomacy will render a victory impossible The Danes and the Schleswig-Holsteiners [Schedules-Holstein] have learnt to esteem each other. #f this esteem should lead to e and union, we know not which side would be the toser; [tose] but certainly Germany would. Therefore, people of Germany, it is for you to mend what your goveraments [Government] have Yours, and yours only, is now the task of binding to yourselves these approved and tzied [tried] brethren. CopENEsGEN, [Copenhagen] August 1, Noon. The last intelligence from the army was, that on the 28th of July, at twelve oclock, [clock] Eckernforde [Oxford] was taken possession of by our troops. In that part of the conntry [country] occupied by the army all was quict. [quiet] The Fadrelandet [Fatherland] is loud in censure of the tardiness and incompleteness of the official reports. Thus it appears that the goverr- [govern- govern] ment [men] have chosen to be silent about the cavalry engage- [engagement] ment [men] at Jagel, [Gargle] in which the Danish were victorious, and made eight prisoners, and, further, that no particulars have been given since the first general accounts of the dead, wounded, and missing. Twelve officers only were reported as dead in the above-mentioned report, whereas it appears that as many as were buried in Flensburg [Ginsburg] on Sunday. Less still is known with respect to the names of the 462 (instead of 104) [W] privates who were buried on Sunday evening in- [instead] stead of 2,000 there were only 800 insurgents made prisoners in Schleswig, [Schedules] and among these were General Baudissin [Basin] and Captain Jess. The day before yesterday in the evening, and during the night, several ships again arrived, bringing the wounded. The king again visited several of the hospitals. Sixteen surgeons of the Schleswig-Holstein [Schedules-Holstein] army having desired to leave the town, have been ordered by the Commander-in-Chief to remain and attend upon the wounded of their own party. It is said that Tscherning [discerning] has addressed a letter of feli- [fell- felicitation] citation to General Krogh, [Rough] offering his services. It is known here that a Russian arder [order] has been awarded to General Krogh. [Rough] The Ribe [Rise] Aris [Ares] states that among the pieces of cannon taken there are several which had formerly been sold to Prussia by Denmark. The Flyveposten [Galveston] reports that 17 insurgents, who were made prisoners at Gamellund, [Garland] carried arms upon which were stamped the initials F. W. surmounted by a crown; oan [on] maintain We have heard nothing yet of the arrival of the 1,000 to 1, i taken at Indstedt. [Invested] - - - VISIT OF PaRIsIaN [Parisian] EXcuRSIONISTS.-On [Excursionists.-On] Sunday a mon- [monster] ster [ste] train, conveying no less than 1,400 Parisians, on an ex- [excursion] cursion [caution] to the metropolis, arrived at the London -bridge terminus of the South-Eastern Railway. Every cab and means of conveyance in the station and vicinity proved in- [inadequate] adequate, and a number of omnibuses were engaged to carry them to their destination in Leicester-square. The lengthy cavalcade, and the unusual appearance of the excursionists, the majority being of the working class, wearing beards, attracted i0si [is] sufficient accommodation, and ing-houses had not numbers had to be quartered in the Strand and vicini [vicinity] ity. [it] tor from this session, Grisi, [Grist] it is stated, will not, for a family reason, be able to 4,000 uae [use] engagement, for which she was to receive presented themse xes [these es] and are accepted. That so small a number should haye [hay] come forward, especially among the younger officers, for such a duty and with such a prospect, is a subject of astonishment to all here. Of foreigners, adventurers, heroes in the cause of radicalism, ' OFFICIAL SALARIES. ire into official The select committee appointed to enquire salaries have published their report. onthe [other] first subject of consideration is the salaries of offices held during the pleasure of the crown, which are os by hay bers [bees] of either house of par ent, [end] vo vot [not] those of the ret [re] chequer, e TIES 2 re Lord of the Admiralty-considering that pew site that they should be filled by persons of the highes [higher] f talent and the greatest experience, the committee are o opinion that the amount of their present Pe e lowest consistently with the re of he the ; nt salaries e ree. [ere] ey an 'of the Chancellor of the Exchequer are 5,000 a-year each, with a residence; those of the other officers above-mentioned being the same, but a residence. The salary of the Junior Lords of the reasury [Treasury] is proposed to be reduced from 1,200 to 1,000, and thai [that] of the two Secretaries to the Treasury from 2,500 to 2,000. The salaries of the Under-Secretaries of Sta were reduced by the committee of 1830-31 [W-31] from 2,000 te 1,500, and it is not considered advisable that they sho [so] be further reduced. The President of the Council receives 2,000, which the committee consider should be retained, the duties of the office having recently inqzoonedt [questioned] son siderably. [considerably] With t to the Board of Trade, i A is recommended that the duties of the Railway Board, for- [formerly] merly [merely] discharged by that establishment, should be hal [al] sumed [sued] by it, with a view to saving the salary of the Railway Commissioner. The salary of the President is proposed to be left unaltered, but that of the Vice-Pre- [President] sidont, [siding] who also discharges the duties of Pa ter- [te- general] General, to be reduced from 2,000 to 1,500 for both offices. The duties of Lord Privy Seal it is recommended should be transferred to some other department, and the salary discontinued. The Judge-Advocate's salary is at present 2,000, the committee propose its reduction on the next appointment to 1,500, and that the future holder of this office shall not be debarred from the practice of his profession. The salaries of the Junior Lords of the Admi- [Admit- Admiralty] ralty, [Raley] of whom two receive 1,200, and the rest 1,000, with a residence, are recommended to be fixed equally at 1,000, and residences allowed only to the First Lord, Senior Naval Lord, and the Secretary. The office of Master of the Mint is recommended to be discontinued as a ony [on] office, and its duties performed by a responsible officer, under the direction of the Treasury. With regard to the Chief Secre- [Secure- Secretary] tary [Tar] for Ireland, the committee recommend that in case the contemplated changes in the local government are not made, the salary of this office should be reduced from 5,500 to 3,000 the reduction to take effect at the next vaeancy, [vacancy] or, in case of no vacancy, at the close of the present par- [parliament] liament. [Parliament] In the department of the Poor Law Board, the Chief Ccmmissione- [Commission- Commissioners] of which receives 2,000, and the two Secretaries 1,500 each, the latter only are proposed to be reduced to 1,000, but it is suggested that, considering the circumstances under which one of the presen' [present] secretaries accepted the office, that of the Parliamentary Secretary alone should be imamediately [immediately] reduced. . The next group of official salaries brought under consi- [cons- consideration] deration [duration] are those of judicial officers. The committee re- [recommend] commend the adoption of the following scale of remunera- [remainder- remuneration] tion -Lord [ion -Lord -Lord] Chancellor, 8,000; Master of the Rolls, 6,000; Vice-Chancellor of England, 5,000; seeond [second] Vice- [Chancellor] Chancellor, 5,000; Masters in Chancery, each 2000 ;. Ac- [Accountant] countant-General, [accountant-General, -General] 2,000; Chief Justice of Queen's Bench, 7,000; ditto Common Pleas, 6,000; Chief Baren of Ex- [Exchequer] chequer, 6,000 twelve Puisne [Pausing] Judges, each 5,900. It understood that the office of the Vice-Chancellor is to be abolished on the first vacaney. [vacant] The retiring allowanees [allowance] of the judges, it is propoced, [proposed] should be adjusted in propertion [proportion] to the above scale. In reference to the large emolumenis [emoluments] of the law advisers of the crewn, [crew] only a general recommen- [recommend- recommendation] dation [nation] for their reduction made, and it is suggested that the Attorney and Solicitor-General micht [might] be paid, without detriment and with a saving to the public, by a fixeds. [fixed] instead of fecs. [fees] On the subjeet [subject] of fees and patronage, in ad- [auditors] dities [duties] to the salaries of j and other of justiee; [justice] appointed to subordinate offiees [offices] in courts of law and equity should receive reasonable and moderate salaries, and invariably execute the duties of those offices in persen [person] The whole system of the office of Accountant- [Accountant general] General is referred to as requiring general revision, and the delays prevailing in the offices. cf Masters in Chancery are pointed to as easy of removal. These reforms would lead toeconomy, [to economy] and give equity suitors. The vigilant at- [attention] tention [mention] eftthe [ether] Board of Treasury is recommended to be drawn towards the enormous expenses of legal proceedings in behalf of the public, with a view to their reduction. All fees on appointment to office are recommended to be abolished. For Scotland, the scale of judges' salaries re- [recommended] commendad [commended] is as follows -Lord Presideat [President] of the Court of Session, 4,300 Lord Justice-Clerk. and President of the Second Division of the Court of Session, 4,000; Lords of Session, Justiciary, and Exchequer, each 3,000. No change is recommended as regards the offices of Lord- [Lord advocate] Advocate and Solicitor-General. The committe [committee] observe, that the number of judges in Scotland is considered larger than the business of the Scotch courts require, and the at- [attention] tention [mention] efgovernment [Government] is drawn to this subject as worthy of consideration in the case of any future vacancy. For the Irish courts the following scale of salaries is recom- [com- recommended] mended Lord Chancellor, 6,000 [6,W] Master of the Rolls, 4,000 Chief Justice of Queen's Bench, 4,200 ; ditto, Common Pleas, 4,000; Chief Baron of the Excheqvar,. [Exchequer] 4,000 Puisne [Pausing] Judges, each 3,000; Mas- [Masters] ters [tees] in Chancery, each 2,000. With respect to the last brazch [branch] of the subject, namely, diplomatic salaries, the committee. recommend that it should be proposed to the Governments of France and Turkey to convert the pre- [present] sent embassies exchanged with. those countries into first- [Fistulas] class missions;.that a single mission at some central point in Germany should be substituted for the several missions now existing at Hanover, Dresden, Stuttgard, [Stuttard] Munich, and Frankfort; that the mission at Florence should be united with one of the Italian missions; that no diplomatic salary should exceed 5,000 per annum, exclusive of allow- [allowance] -ance [once] for residence; that the salaries of the whole diplomatic service sould [should] be revised with reference to-this proposed maximen, [maxim] and the relative importance of the various mis- [is- missions] sions, [Sons] the latter being united when possible, and in some cases consuls or consular agents substituted. Lastly, with regard to the diplomatic pension-list, it is observed that the . amount of pensions bears a very large proportion 'to the sm paid for actual service, and it is recommended that regulations ke made for granting futsre [future] pensions in accordance with the present enactments on-civil pensions, so far-as the peculiar circumstances connected wiih [with] diplo- [diploma- diplomatic] matic [magic] services will allow..
