pecl'iilly give notice to those who may wish t*i avail tlienisclves 
of the lilierai terms and conditions now- offered by the Company-, 
to settlers in their Colony, that we now have at Hh' settlement, at 
Hie forks of thi- Trinity- River, a iN-rmanent resident .Agent, .Mr. 
Charles S. Hensley, an intelligent and com|petenl gentlemaH, who 
will al all limes lie prepared to receive and locate to their salis- 
factiuii. without delay, all who may go there to settle. 

To all emigiants who shall go on to the grant and settle in the 
Colony, on or In-foie the 1st day of July, 1846. Hie I’ouipany will 
give to each and everv lainily ; 26 acres of land, and to each and 
evtry- single man over the age of seventeen years It'jW acres of land, 
to lie selected by themselves, uimhi paying lo t.ur agent, for Hie 
cost of the surveys of the lainls upon which they- shall sellle, at 
the rate of 616 f-ir each family, and ?8 ^lr eachsiiiele inaii«and 
tiie actual e\| ense of the deeils anil the record thereof, and, if the

A im.L VETOED. j 

The Governor’s ^Message was read, the substance 1 
of which was as f/llows; Two bills, concerning the 
Louisville and Portland Canal Company, had passed j 
at the last session of the General Assembly, and i 
been presented for his approval at a date not ten • 
d.tys before the adjournment. He returned the first 
bill with the following objections: That the second 
bill accomplished the proper objects contemplated 
by the first, and even if he had no other objection to 
the first, it did not seem congruous to have two 
such acts on the statute books. But he had a more 
serious objection. The first bill ceded to the U. 
States jurisdiction for crimes committed on the pro- 
perty of the Canal Company. He doubted the pow- 
er of the Legislature to cede away this jurisdiction; 
and even if the question of power were a clear one. ' 
be deemed the cession of jurisdiction highly impol- 
itic. and would have veto^ the bill on that ground . 
alone. j 

Mr. BCTLER had examined the subjects pre- j 
Rented in the message, and believed ibe Governor 
was entirely right in his positions. The cession of i 
criminal jurisdiction must have been an inadver- 
tence in the mere wording of the bill, not perhaps 
designed by its framers; but certainly admitting the 
construction. He moved that the bill be indefinitely 
postponed. 

Mr. HELM. The question is — “Shall the bill ' 
p»ss. (tie Governor’s objections to the contrary not- ! 
withstdnding?” | 

And the question being taken — “Shall the bill 
pass, the Governor’s objections to the contrary not- 
withstanding?” by yeas and nays as the Constitu- 
tion requires, it was unanimously decided in the , 
negative. 

[Mr. HEADY, when his name was called, was 
excused from voting, on the ground that he had not 
apprehended the question.] 

So the bill was rejected. ^ 

Petitions were presented by Messrs. TODD, A. , 
BOYD, HENDERSON and GRAY, and appropri- 
ately referred.

Mr. GLENN saw no necessity for increasing the 
public expense on this account. To be sure, lie had 
occasion to dispose of .a few hundred more than his 
portion of the 2(K)t) already received by the House; 
and lie had paid for tliem out of his own pocket. 

Mr. E. SMITH. The gentleman, nerlnps, was 
wealthy. Mr. S., for his part, had not to spare for 
such expenditures: and he was not fearfiil nor care- 
ful whether his constituents might grumble to pay 
fur their own reading. 



select committee, 

Mr. M.AYHALL had leave to introduce a bill to 
amend Ihe Execution Law of 1828. Referred to a 
select committee. 

Mr. POPE, from a select committee, obtained the 
unanimous consent of the House to report a bill for 
Ihe benefit of Enoch Stout and others; which was 
read and ordered to a second reading. 

Upon his motion to dispense with the further 



readings of the bill, Mr. POPE represented, that 
. J , ■ , . , those gentlemen for whose benefit the bill was pre- 

Mr. HLGHLS had also P«|rchased a number of ,,„red, now stood infficted before the Louisville City 

copies; and he wanted a few hundred more. Ihe ( Court, for taking off .a negro woman, ns a slave af- 
ter she had instituted suit in the Louisville Chan- 
cery Court for freedom; and their trial was set for 
Monday next. 'J’he petition and papers entrusted 
lo him would show conclusively that, owing to the 
prejudice entertained in Ihe case by the Judge of 
the City Court, there was ground for apprehension 
that the accused would siifTer more than the demand 
of justice; and lie would ask that they be read from 
the clerk’s table. [Tlie petition and papers were 
iHiw read, and Mr. P. proceeded,] The effect of the 
bill was merely to change the hearing of the case 
from Ihe City Court room, which is below stairs, lo 
the Circuit Court room, before Judge Marshall, 
which is above stairs in the same building. The 
fine for the offence for which the petitioners stood in- 
dicted, was not less than ,§500 nor more than ,§1000. 
They were all poor men, and imprisonment would 
be the consequence of their conviction. And it 
should be especially understood that as soon as Mr. 
Stout learned that the supposed slave woman had 
filed her bill for freedom, — although lie was going 
out of the State at the lime, he returned with her 
to Louisville. 

The second and third readings were then dis- 
pensed with, and the hill passed. 

Mr. J. S. SMITH had leave to introduce a bill 
further to reduce the price of unappropriated lands 
in Madison county. Referred to a select com- 
mittee. 

Mr. BEGLEY had leave to introduce a bill for the 
benefit of the Sheriff of Perry county. Referred to a 
select committee. 

Mr. STEVENSON had leave to introduce a bill 
for the benefit of Washington Lodge No. 3, of the 
Independent Order of Odd Fellows of Covington. 
Referred to n select committee.

certain infant heirs in Hardin county. Referred to 
a select committee.

benefit of W. T. Samuels. Referred to a select {

vide Nathan Marsh, a Justice of the Peace of Har- ]

the unanimous consent of the House to report a I 
bill extending the Constable’s District miles j 



tew 

Message was an important paper, and lie desired 
that it should be extensively circulated. 

The quesiion was then decided in the negative. 

Mr. MAYS had leave lo intreducea bill to repeal 
an act, eniillcd. An act to regulate the administra- 
tion and settlement of estates, approved February. 
18;J9. Referred lo Messrs. Mays, Dallam and 
Dudley. 

Mr. SPEED had leave to introduce a bill for the 
benefit of Thomas E. Jones. Referred to Messrs. 
Speed. Haggard and Elliott. 

Mr. HUGHES now renewed his motion lo print 
2(KH) additional copies of the Message. 

Mr. WALLER. The Message was an imporlant 
State paper, especially in respect to its clear and 
succinct representations of the financial condition of 
the Slate; and lie was also in favor of the motion, 
because it had been usual, he believed, to print a 
larger number of copies than was ordered yester- 
day. 

Mr. HARLAN moved to amend the motion by 
requiring the Printer to furnish 2-50 copies of the 
Second Auditor’s Report. That document he had 
seen during its progress through the press. It re- 
lated to the subject of oiir fin.anccs, and especially 
to the great question of taxation, in which the peo- 
ple always take the greatest interest. It might be 
that the people of Barren county did not desire to 
see the documents in connection with this great in- 
terest; but he felt assured that the report would be 
acceptable in all parts of the State. This Report 
was like liie Annual Report of the Secretary of the 
Treasury of the United States. Of that document 
some 20.000 copies were always printed, that all 
the people might look fully into this question of all 
questions, the great mailer of taxation. Certainly, 
if any public document ought to go out to the peo- 
ple, it ought to be that which may best inform them 
of the money whicli goes out of their pockets to the 
support of the public treasury. Air. H. concurred 
with the gentleman from Mason, [Mr. Waller,] 
that the Governor’s Message was an important pa- 
per; but, indeed, said he, it cannot be fully under- 
stood apart from the report of the Second Auditor; 
they ought to go together, and be placed in every 
man’s hands. The expense would be trifling, &c. 

Mr. HARDY felt that he had been unfortunate in 
anticipating a portion of the remarks of the gentle- 
man from Franklin. For, whilst it must be ad- 
mitted that the document in question is most valua- 
ble to members, and to all onr fellow-citizens, yet, 
if gentlemen will only go into their postoffices, they 
will find hundreds of their documents there, with 



the postage unpaid upon them; and there they lie as j around ihe town of Alayfield; which was read, &c., 
adead letter — wholly dead to all the advantages pro- ‘ ' - - 

posed by sending them forth. Knowing this fact, 
he had said the documents would nut reach the peu 



(the further constitutional provisions being dis- 
pensed with,) and passed. 

The SPEAKER now laid before the House the 



pie; and last year also, on the same account, lie was i annual report of the Board of Commissioners of the

Fkaxce— The United States-Oregon—Mi. 

ny of our citizens have felt anxious to hear how 
France would receive Ihecomplair.ts of interference 
which Mr. Polk, in his late Alessage._made against 

annexa- 

his fellow lalMtrers. but the editor of the Coirr'ier des 
Etafa Unis, who has recently been with these states- 
men, is of upinion that they will find cause to re- 
criminate. The New York Courier translates the 
following : — Pkiladetphia L\ S. Gazelle. 

“The French Government will be deeply wound- 
ed by the acciis.ation «if treason and inlrigue, (the 
word IS there at full lengih,)openly cast upon it 
from Ihe Presidential chair. And. let ns say h. ihe 
French Cabinet will not be wounded without rea- 
son. Wbetlier Ihe ptjlicy it adopted on the Texan 
question were good ur bad. it owes no account of it 
other than to its own country and to its own con- 
science, and it lielongs not lo .any foreign govern- 
ment to constitute itself the judge thereof. The 
accusation preferred by Mr. Polk against the policy 
of Al. Guizot, will so much the more irritate the lat- 
ter, as it will be in the hands .»f the opposition in 
France a sharp weapon; the Irft of the Chamber will 
scourge unmercifully with the policy of the minis- 
try. But Al. Guizot is not a patient victim, and 
when he turns upon his adversaries, his return blow 
iisiinlly leaves one or more of them on the ground. 
We are much deceived— or Air. Polk will have his 
share in these vigorous reprisals.’’ 

On the subject of Oregon, Mr. Galliardet sars: 
“Recently the opinions of the French were strongly 
against the American claim, owing lo a work pub- 
lished by Al. De Alofras; but later information has 
changed public opinion in favor of the Americans, 
anil this change of opinion is operating in England.” 
Air. (lalliardet thus closes his remarks; — “The 
necessity of a compromise, more extensive than any 
nltima’iim yet presented, will be tacitly, if not pub- 
licly admitted, and diplomacy will vet be allowed to 
cm the apple of discord. The United States, how- 
ever. will get the largest part. Such will we 
hope, the result of this political embroilment, which 
will cease to be a melodrama, when the public shall 
be fully enlightened upon its merits.” 

A Brief Report. — A committee on the state of 
religion in one of the New England Associations, 
deviating from the usually prolix style of documents 
on that subject, preser.teil the fullowing : 

“That the slate of religion in the churches com- 
posing this Association is lamentably low. needs no 
argument lo prove ; but to prescribe a remedy is a 
task more difficult, yet your committae make an at- 
tempt ; Therefore, 

''Resolved, That the shepherds of the several 
lltvks repent of their lukewarmness, bumble them- 
selves at the foot of the cross, seek forgiveness of 
God. and return wholly to bis service. 

"Resolved, That tlie Hocks follow tlieir shepherds.” 

New HAMPstitRE. — Both sections of the Democ- 
racy have called Conventions to be held at Concord 
on the 8th of J,innary. Both sides of the parly are 
‘ PA'ideiitly taking the fiehl for a struggle of the most 
i 5 ! 488 ;m )0 j character — one which is 
to decide not only their own fate, but the piilitical 
character of the State for many years. The Whig 
party, we trust, will not be backwaard in defending 
their side of the fortress — their own principles, and 
their own men . — Dover Inquirer.

Religious De.nomi.nations in the U. S.— The 
American Almamac for next year, conluins the fol- 
lowing statement of the numbers, &.C., of the va- 
rious religious denominations in theU. States; 



It is said that the Duke of Wellington — who is 
just about as furious for war. in England, as Gen. 
Cass is, in this country — openly de  lalcs that, if 
there is a war with America, it shall be ashorl Kar. 
If His Grace will Imik back into the archievcs of 
the (lovermneiit, of which he is a member, he will 
find that a person somewhat celebrated in Engli-h 
history, by the name of "Lord \»rl/i." made a very 
similar declaration some seventy years .ago. 

It might nut be a bad plan, if the American and 
British Government would so agree, to submit the 
Oregon question to the arbitrament uf personal com- 
bat — and let the Duke of Wellington and Gen. Cass 
go out and do battle, as the Representatives of their 
respective nations. Such a fight, to us. would be 
much like that of the bear and rattle-snake. We 
should not feel very solicitous as to the result of 
such a contest, eitheir in regard to combatants en- 
gaged, or the stake at issue. — Boslon Allas. 

South Carolina. — The South Carolina Legisla- 
ture adjourned on Alouday week. The H“u«e adopt- 
ed, by a vole of two to one. the report in favor of 
transferring the election of President and Vice Pres- 
ident of llie United Stales from the people, “and 
that the election by the people ought tu be upon the 
principle of the general ticket, the said ticket to be 
composed of one elector from each Congressional 
district, and of one from the upper, and one frotn 
the lower division of the Slate.”

The question recurred on the proposition to print i Washington. 



If we add to this 1.5,000 churches for the differ- 
ent Alelhodisl denominations above, the whole num- 
ber of Ihe churches will be about 45.000, employing 
about 32,000 ministers. Of these denominations, 
the Roman Calholics have increased the most rapid- 
ly, their churches and priests having doubled since 
1834. They have twenty ecclesiastical seminaries, 
fifteen colleges and tweniy-six bishops. The Epis- 
copal Alelhodist, however, are still the largest 
branch of the Church in this country, and next to 
these the Baptist. 

The Tariff.— Extract from the Wa.shington cor- 
respondent of the United States Gazette: 

The Sub-Treasury bill, which has occupied the 
Committee of Ways and Means for a week or more, 
having been reported to the House, it is probable 
the subject of the tariff will next claim ihe altenlion 
and employ the lime of Ihe commitlee. What sort 
of a tariff bill we shall have, I cannot foretell ex- 
actly, but surmise that it will be still more Demo- 
cratic, that is, more free tradish, than Mr. McKay s 
bill, reported two years ago. We shall see. I con- 
gratulate those who shouted for “Polk, Dallas, and 
the Tariff of ,42,” on the fine prospect before them. 



Southern Opinion of the Message. — The 
Charleston .Mercury says the only subject* of inter- 
est in the President’s Message are Oregon and the 
Tariff. 

In respect of the former, it says the object of the 
President’s recommendations is the jtossession of 
tlie whole of Oregon by the United Slates, and that, 
if they be carried out. the result will be urar. The 
Mercury trusts there is wisdom enough in Congress 
to save the coiintiy from “the desolation and demor- 
alization of a long and bloody war — a war in which 
we are morally certain not to win the object for 
^^214 ! which it shall be waged;” and is warmly in favor of 
that peaceful progress which has already made us 
the great nation of the New World, and which 
demands only that its own grand and rapid inarch 
be unchecked, to make us in another half century 
the fuiemost people uf the whole earth.” 

View from the Pyramids. — Tlie recent work of 
the Rev. Dr. Durbin, published by the Harpers, en- 
titled “Observations iq the East,” abounds with fine 
hie descriptions. The following outline of the 



with singular beauty: 

“ What a sight is that from the top of Cheops! 
The world has nothing like it. To the east is the 
Arabian desert, boundless and desolate, like a sea; 
while westward stretches that of Libya, without a 
greet spot, far away to Ihe horizon’s verge; in tlie 
south appears the valley of the Nile, like a thread 
of green earth lying on an ocean of sand, and the 
pyramids of Abuukir, Sakliara, and Darfour, tow- 
ering up in succession to the skies; turning north- 
ward, your eye rests upon the wide-spread Delta in 
the distance, and nearer, in the north-east, upon the 
lone obelisk of Heliopolis. Immediately before you 
rise the precipitous heights of Alount Alokattam, 
crowned with the citadel of Cairo, under which lies 
the ancient city, enveloped in a thin vapur, which 
just suffices to hide the deformities of the place, 
while a thousand domes and minarets, of graceful 
proportions, their gilded crescents glittering in the 
sunbeams, rise up to complete the vision of beauty. 
I turned from gazing on it to look upon the rocky 
plain immediately aroiid the pyramid. There, 
deeply buried in the rock, now covered with sand 
and rubbish, lie the dead of four thousand years 
ago. It is, indeed, a vast necropolis, ll seemed as 
though 1 were among the earliest born of meo- 
From the plains be had gone forth the elements of 
science, art, and wisdom, to Greece, lo Europe, to 
America. I felt as a child, born after unnumbered 
generations, returned to the home of bis ancestors, 
and behold ! it was all desolate ! ”

Thou of the stalwart frame and fearless eye! 

Lift proudly now thine iron hand on high! 

Firm and undaunted stand I 

No need hast thou of gem.* 

To deck the glorious temple of thy thought; 

Thou hast the jewels which tliy mind bath wrought 
Richer than diadems ! 

Thou art God’s high-priest, 

Standing before great Nature’s mighty shrine; 

For the whole world the glorious task is thine 
To spread the eternal feast ! 

Even like the Hebrew Chief, 

Striketh thou on the rock, and from its deep 
Mysterious heart tlie waters leap. 

To give the earth relief! 

Mighty among thy kind, 

Standeth thou, man of iron toil, midway 
Between the earth and heaven, all things to sway 
By thy high-working mind ! 

Thou canst delve in the earth. 

And from i.s mighty dejdlis bring forth pure gold; 

Thou canst unwrap the clouds in heaven rolled, j 

.'ud give the lightning birth ! j 

Thou hast the stormy seas 

Chained to thy chariot wheels, and the wild winds I 

Obey the o’emiling intellect that binds f 

Their rushing wings to tliee ! J 

Thou canst new bends create, | 

Where the wild rolling waves no mastery owns ; i 

And the vast distance of opposing zones 

Canst thou annihilate ! | 

Lift, then, thy hand to Heaven ! | 

Spread thy toil-sceptre o’er the sea and land | 

Thou hast the world entrusted to thy hand. 

Earth to thy charge is given ! i
