A New Ykar. — Do not be frightened 
dear reader, we arc not about to inflict 
on you a new years* sermon, about th - 
"flight of time." The joys of the p^st 
year, the hopes for the present, and all 
that sort of thing, which you know just 
«8 much about ;»s we do. Wr could 
moralize on the old fellow th^ has just 
left us, but we consider ail such newspa- 
per lucubrations as bores, and never road 
them ourself, and have uo right to be 
lieve others wish (o. All we have to say 
about the old year is, that he was a dried 
up old concern, but he now sleeps with 
his fathers, and whatever his faults were, 
we are bound to forget them and remem- 
ber his virtues only. 

The holidays are over likewise, for 
which we trust, we are duly thankful.— 
Of all the bores that tJie old Tyrant cus- 
tom li'ts seen proper lo visit upon the 
heads of civilized beings, we regard the 
holidays as thu chiefesl among ten thou- 
sand. We can now walk the streets 
without the fear of haviuga mine sprung 
under us, — crackers bursting under our 
nose, — torpedoes circulating among our 
legs, or sky rockets exploding in our coal 
pockets. "Christmas gift!" "(.'hristmas 
gift!" will no more for a term of months, 
be rung in nur ears by all sorts, sizes, 
sexes, ages, colors and conditions of the 
human family, for which immunitr we 
hope We are duly grateful. Yen, the six 
days reign of boys and negroes has 
closed. The former have abdicated in 
favor of the schoolmaster, and the lat- 
ter hove retired tu the kitchens and 
stables. 

But enough of the old year, it is the 
new, with which w^ now have to deal, 
and of which we designed speaking. 
A. D. 1866 is before us. It will probably 
contain the usual amount of sunshine, 
showers, joys, .sorrows, hope, despair, 
love, hatred and buckwheat cakes. Ii is 
lo be a free-fight, and it behooves us all 
to pitch in and get our share of sun- 
shine, joy, hope, love and cakes; the 



Thk Great Qvestiok Settled. — The 

Louisville Journal savs: "The great 
Hungarian (Kos.sutli) in a reply under 
his own name to the strictures of the 
London Times, recognises his reported 
speed) as genuine." We hreathe again! 
The speech is genuine and the country 
is safe. How the Louisville Journal gets 
ils information, we of course don't know. 
From ihi' lime the editors have taken to 
prepare themselves, we are bound to be- 
lieve that now they have opened their 
oracular lips, that they speak by the 
card. We have no more lo say; we are 
dumb. We dare not question the au- 
thority — the editors of the Louisville 
Journal are so very testy. We dare not 
fcxpicss an opinion on the speech now it 
fs "genuine;" the editors of the Louis- 
ville Journal are so severe — so killingly 
sarcastic. They ring the changes on 
such awful words as "expected," "knew," 
"expect," "know," and "doan'l," with 
sucli fearful facility that we are terrified, 
'i'wii e have they publislied a paragraph 
containing them all, and well do we know 
that they have the ability — when excit- 
ed — to publish the same paragraph twen- 
ty — yoa, twenty-five times. 

Wf therefore acknowledge to thegen- 
uine.-.s of the "great Hungarian's" re- 
port( d speech. We never believed that 
the editors of ihe Louisville Journal were 
hoax-'d! no, not for a moment. We 
were in fun when we said so. The very 
idea of the editors of the Louisville 
Jourtial being hoaxed! Pshaw! ab- 
surd!! We were in fun when we said so, 
believing in the innocence of our heart 
that even we, might liave our "little 
joke" with the great editors of the Lou- 
isvill-' (Ky.) Journal. But we have 
learu'id better now, and trust that the 
rcspt'-.tful, severe, and extremely courte- 
ous reproof, which the editors of that 
greai organ have deigned to administer, 
may lie sanctified lo our everlasting good. 
Our trembling heart is overflowing with 
gratitude, that they did not eat us up. 

Nok-Imtervention. — Petitions are in 
circulation in various parts of the United 
State ., asking our government to inter- 
fere between the Anglo- Gallic Alliance 
and llussia, and propo.se a settlement of 
the difficulties by nibitrament. This 
niovi ment was set on foot by a set of 
meddling politician.'^ who never hav^ 
business enough of Iheii own but are 
elern illy poking their no:cs into the af- 
fairs of others. With the quarrels of 
Europe wc have nothing to do, and are 
notoiincerncd in their resuli.s. No doubt 
that the Allies would receive such a pro- 
position with favor, for they have at last 
discovered that they have uudertaken 
more than they ran perform. If they 
could back out from their present unen- 
viabh; position with any show of honor, 
they would gladly do .so. Tbey got into 
the tight without our assistance, and lei 
them fisrht out or back out as best suits 
them. Before the commencement of 
hostilities on the Crimea, they would 
have scorned the mediation of the Uni- 
ted States; and when Great Britain was 
flushed with the supposed easy victory in 
the Crimea, she even had the insolence 
lo dictate terms to us. She thought that 
the success of her armies in the East, 
would be a profitable lesson for Brother 
Jonathan, and give him a very correct 
conception of the prowess of the British 
Lion. The terrific growl of that invinci- 
ble Lion turned out lo be tlic bray of a

Improvements bt the General Gov- 
ernment. — The President's veto of the 
River and Harbor bill, passed at the close 
of the last session of (Jhn!,frcss, vras the 
subject of quite an animated debate in 
the Lower House a few ilays since. It 
will be recollected that ll,r' President re- 
turned the bill lo (longrc.Hs wilh a brief 
message, and jiromised lo present .it this 
session of Congress a more full exiilaiia- 
lion of his views upon the subjfcl of in- 
ternal improvements. An allusion lo .lie 
same topic w.is also made in his annual 
message, and the promise repeated. — 
The promi.sc not yet having been fulfill- 
ed, the patience of Mr. Haven, of X(.tv 
York, and Mr. Camjjbell, of Ohio, hate 
been exhausted. Tluy coiis«queiiliy 
-seized upon the first opportunity to give 
Voice to their dissatisfaction. Mr. Ha- 
ven was ferociously indignant and c.x 
cruciatingly severe upon the President. 
He went so far as to intimate in the most 
tiunling and cruel manner that the re.'i- 
Bon the President had not communicated 
histicwslo Congress, was thai he had 
no views. If Mr. CampbeJl_|j» Jl-*een^ 
making an anti-slavery speech lo a select 
body of his abolition con.stiluenls, he 
could not have abused the present adniiii- 
istralion wilh greater gusto than upon 
this occasion. The silly trade of lhe e 
two Abolition foes of [\n: Democratic 
jiarty was very efl'ectually responded to 
by Mr. Bayly, of Virginia, and Mr. Orr, 
of ISonth Carolina. They were very 
summarily silenced by the querv as to 
what they wanted wilh the views of the 
President, and what influence those views 
could exercise upon their opinions. 

The fact was that Messrs. Haven and 
Campbell were extemporizing a small 
amount of demagoguery at the exnensc 
of the lime and patience of the House, 
and the trick was very promptly exposed 



TiioMAB Jefferson's Opinion of Sk- 
CBET Political Associations. — The fol- 
lowing letter of Thomas Jefferson lo 
Jedediah Morse, (Cors. Vol. 4lh, page 
.'^'t.'') imlicales vrrv clenrly in what li!;ht 
that chief of American republicans and 
statesmen regarded "private associations 
whose irjagnitnde may rivalise and jeop- 
ardise the mnrcli of regular goveinincni." 
W ' commend it to the careful perusal and 
senous consideration of every honest man 
in the Know-Nolliing ranks, and to all 
citizens of every political ]iarly who have 
at heart the welfare of the Republic. 

The society in reference lo which this 
letter was written, was one of very hum- 
ble and modest pretensions compared 
with the Know-Nothing organization of 
the present day. The principal reasons 
Wiat induced the sagacious author to di?- 
approve of and discountenance the for- 
mer lie with tenfold weight against the 
hitter. The one was to be simply a phi- 
lanthropic association, open and public in 
its deliberations and movements, and lim- ( 
iled to the single purpose of elevating die 
• hura' ter and bettering the condition if 
the Indian tribes — one on which citizens 
of the United ."States, of all countries, 
religions, professions and parties were 
inviud to unite and co-operate harmoni- 
ously for a common object. The other 
IS one of a secret politico-religious char- 
acler, the most unfortunate" of all possi- 
hle combinations, of an intolerant and 
belligerent spirit, making distinctions, 
broad and odious, between ditlerenl re- 
ligions and dillerenl classes of our people, 
and arabiiious of monopolizing all polit- 
ical power, and of directing permanently 
the whole machinery of our governments, 
Mato and Federal. No man can possibly 
read this letter of the most illustrioui; of 
all the "compatriots of Washington," 
and by no means the least among the 
"Sire.s of Sevenly .Six," and believe, for 
one moment, that he, if alive and in hi^i

cijile. 

The writer for the Journal under the 
I'l.'vernfa bridge lakes occasion to nd" 
\ ocate the Nashville Road and disparage 
I lie Memphis Air-Line Road. We have 
itot the slightest objection to the Nash- 
\ ilie Koad, and should like lo see it con- 
.•-tnicted; but when tho question comes 
up between that iind the Memphis Road, 
Wi- are decidedly for the latter. 

It seens a little curious to us, that we 
eruinot be a friend of the Nashville Road 
v. ithiiiit disparaging and ridiculing the 
Air-Line Road. But we have never yet 
■ ••ad a communication in favor of the 
lir-l-named project, that did not t.xhibit 
ih'j bitterest hostility towards the last. — 
K.i! one single argument can be adduced 
ill favor of the Nashville Road, that does 
i.ut apply with three-fold force in favor of 
tho Memphis route.

Trodblk in the C.^Mr. — From the 
ijcxington StHtesman we learn that the 
ISunllinitcs had a llare-up, at their meet- 
ing in Lexington on the night of the 
fourth. S(;veral members becoming dis- 
gusted with the sellisli and narrow-mind- 
ed policy of this disgraceful band of 
"Americans"( !) withdrew from the or- 
der. 

We wonder how a high-minded gen- 
tleman, must feel to he skulkinu; around 
the corners after dark to meet his broth- 
er braves and with them — protected by 
outside sentinels — devise ways lo save 
the country from the alarming influence 
of the Pope's toe or th 3 startling en- 
croachments of a jioor Irishman ? — 
Beautiful, brave, pairiotic, midnight 
conclave ! They arrog:ite to themselves 
the little of "Americans," but they re- 
semble Americans only in shape; their 
acts, arc more like the midnight delibera- 
tions of ho'ise-breakers and assassins. 



;;;;:;:::;::;JANUARY U, i iocidental power is explained in a clear 
and lucid manner. He holds that the 
particular improvements must be neces- 
sary to the execution of the express pow- 
ers, or they do not come within the juris- 
dictiun of Congress. 

The extent of the power of Congress 
to make river and harbor improvements, 
for the purpose of facilitating navigation, 
is very elaborately discussed in the Mes- 
sage. The difficulty of fixing upon any 
rule, by which the question as to the na- 
tional or local character of an improve- 
ment could be infariably determined, is 
acknowledged, but the diflficulty does 
not beem lu u^^ so insui niounlable as lo 
warrant the concession to Congress of as 
large an amount of discretion as is ad- 
mitted by the President in his Message. 
If the power cannot be limited, it would 
be wiser lo avoid the exercise of it alto- 
gether. The President thinks that the 
danger of abusing this discretion would 
be greatly lessened if Congress would 
require the States to surrender their ju- 
risdiction over the sites of permanent 
works, and also abandon the practice of 
includinj^ more than one object of im- 
provement in the same bill. The last of 
these suggestions would unquestionably 
be very beneficial in its results. 

There is one suggestion in the Mes- 
sage which we should rejoice to see ac- 
cepted by Congress, for the reason that 
we believe it would remove from Con- 
gress a most vexatious and dangerous 
Subject of legislation — the passage of an 
act permitting the States lo levy tonnage 
duties for the improvement of their re- 
spective harbors. The advantage of ihis 
system is thus succinctly stated in the 
Message — 

" Harbor impmvenients thus constructed and 
maintained, the expenditures upon them being 
defrayed by the very facilities they aftbrd, are a

At the last session of Congress, a few 
days before the adjournment, an "in- 
ternal improvement" bill, containing a 
sufficient number of appropriations to 
secure the support of a majority of the 
members, was passed, and returned by 
the President with his veto. That Con- 
gress might have an opportunity of act- 
ing upon the veto before the adjourn- 
ment, the President was compelled lo 
return the bill with a very brief state- 
ment of his objection, but promised to 
communicate during the present session 
the reasons for his dissent. 

Considerable impatience has beci 



nation a double injury to places equally requiring 
improvement, but not equally favored by appro- 
priations."

yet come when the people of the United 
States are prepared to appreciate the 
great abilities and lofty virtues which 
formed the character of Andrew Jack- 
son. Although many of the calumnies, 
that pursued him while living, were en- 
tombed with him, enough of partisan 
hate and prejudice is yet left lo defile his 
memo-y, He was the chief of a great 
party in the fiercest political struggle 
through which the Republic haseverpass- 
ed; and animosities engcidered in such 
a strife must exist until those, in whose 
bosoms they rankle, have descended into 
their graves. 

iOrThe editor of the Journal desires 
to know what will be the proper time 
for the President to communicate his 
views lo Congress on Internal Improve 
menls. Unlil Congress passes anolli- 
er bill the President cannot, of course, 
communicate his views in the form of a 
veto message. Whenever il is the opin- 
ion of the Pretiideiil that the public in- 
terests require thai he should recommend 
Mime measure of intei-nal iinprovenienl, 
it will be the proper lime for him to com- 
municate his opinion as lo what improve- 
ments are warianied by his views of the 
constitution and the true policy of the 
country.

The .SpfcciAL Messaok of the Prksi- 
DK.NT. — The special message Of Presiil(;nt 



The Lexington .Statesman gives an 
aci-ounl of a niw amongst them in that city: and 
we leaiii that in Covington some days since a 
tremendous muss was kicked up in one ol their 
Lodges, by an attempt to expel Col. R. B. Carpen- 
ter fi-oin the Order. When the motion was made 
in iiis Lixige, some tweniy five of the most in- 
Ihieiitia! members took their hats, and declared 
they would quit the concern, if Ihc motion was 
per^isU'd in. Afia.'r a good deal of heat and 



they will come to the conclusion, that 
they could have very well all'orded lo 
have been vaslly more patient upDn the 
occasion, and would doubtless consent, 
if the matter could be reconsidered, lo 
entirely dispense with ihe performance 
of the promise. 

Distinguished as Mr. Pierce is for his 
scholarship and talents, his reputation 
cannot fail to be very greatly added to 
by this Message. No intelligent reader 
can rise from the pjrusal of it, without 
till thorough conviction thai its author 
is one of the most vigorous and profound 
thinkers in the Union. As soon as the 
press of matter upon our columns will 
permit, we propose lo publish the Mes- 
sage in full, but must content ourselves 
for the present with slating it'; mo t]irom- 
inent features. 

The Message commences with a refer

delightful island, to send in their iiaiiies forth- 
with. 

Wc trust the jitnla will have no difficul- 
ty in finding the requisite number of 
emigrants. As we understand there are 
a thousand or more Kentuckians, who 
have been talking about settling in Cuba, 
we give the advertisement the benefit of

O" It has long been a practiee of the British 
goveinment to engage foreigners to advocate its 
views abroad. Thus the Chevalier WikolT re- 
ceived jL'SOO from Lord Palmerston, for influenc- 
ing the public mind iu the United States. The 
Herald suggests that, inasmuch as Jas. W. Webb, 
of the Courier, w.is so intimate with Lord Clar- 
eiiilen during his absence, and on his return is so 
changed in lii« opinions of Bi ilish diplomacy, per- 
haps he bus smelt somcwh'ii of British gold also. 

I New York Herald. 

If all the Whig papers that are British 

in their opinions and sympathies had 

been subsidised by British gold, there 

would noi be figures enough to ex- 

encc to the great federal scheme of John [ P""''^'' '""'^""^ "'^

the season. 

Hull, Hunt & Co., on Sunday killed, scraped 
and hung up .'1122 hogs, in the apace of aj-j 
hours. This it is said has never been equalled. — 
The same house yesterday killed 2'JUO head — 



Upon this the President very pertinent- 
ly remarks. 

"That, if there be any constitutional power 
which authorizes the constnjction of 'railroads and 
canals' by Congress, the same power must com- 
prehend turnpikes and ordinary carriage roads; — 
nay, it must extend to the construction of bridges, 
to the driining of marshes, to the erection of 
levees, to the construction of canals of irrigation.

that "public education" could be inclu- 
ded in the same class of powers, and a 
like system of reasoning, in the opinion 
of the President, would include "not on- 
ly public instruction, but hospitals, estab- 
lishments of science and art, libraries, 
and indeed everything appertaining to 
the internal welfare of the country." It 
is impossible that any man can read this 
portion of the message and escape the 
conviction that the opinions held by the 
politicians of the "Slates-rights" school, 
are the only safe opinions; and when- 
ever we undertake lo view the Fed- 
eral Government in any other light than 
as one of limited powers, we launch Ihe 
"ship of State" upon a tempestuous sea, 
with no pilot lo direct its course. In 
such an event, the only question unde- 
termined would be how long before the 
noble craft would be broken to pieces bv 
the waves beating against it. 

The President very emphatically dis- 
senu*! from the doctrine that any general 
power over the subject of internal im- 
provement is conferred by the Constitu- 
tion upon the Federal Government. — 
There is no specific grant of any such 
power in Ihe Constitution, and no geiiei- 
al provision broad enough to cover any 
such indefinite object. To obviate this 
difficulty, the friends of a system of in- 
ternal improvement are driven lo th e ne- 
Cebsitv of claiming the j'ower as incident- 
al to other powers expressly granted to 
Congress, but as is aptly said in the nies- 
saire— 



understand they will wind up lh*ir operations for 
the season by killing from 2500 to :t000 head. 

Jai vis & Co. killed 500 head yesterday . which 
will about close their operations. They sold 180 
bis. of mess Pork yesterday, at $12, equal te 
cash. 

The number killed up to l.ast evening, was 
ai;*^,.'' 77. 

The total number killed alCincinnati up to lost 
week, was 27'1,'J65; the same date last season 
320,341. 

At Madison, Indi.ina, the i". i ipts arc 70,000 
hogs, which is an excess ove, l.i season. At 
Lafayette, Indiana, upwards of 211,11(10 hogs have 
been killed at Hanna &. Semple's, which is about 
4,000 more than were killed by this house during 
the whole of last season. 

It is cstimated^that 1^,000 hogs will be slaugh- 
tered at Keokuk ihis season, against 9.000 last 
year. At (Juincy it is thought an excess of al 
least 8,000 to 10,000 will be obtained over last 
season's operations. 

The Alton Illinois Telegraph, of the 30 ult., 

ssys: ¥ 

The packing of pork is progressing with much 
activity. We are informed that the number of 
hogs cut up at this point thus far, exceeds, by one 
ihirJ, what is usual. No change in prices — the 
ranee being from $3 to $:i 10 owl. Thei« are 
still a great many to be driven iu, and the busi 
ness will probably occupy another month. 

The Cincinnati Commercial of yosicrday 
says: 

Provisions — The market continues very dull; 
and the only sale heard of to day was 1200 Greeo 
Hams from Railroad at J'^C- 

Hou" — The weather is agim unfavorable for 
packing, and llogsbeing plenty and Provisions al- 
most unsaleable, the market is extremely dull. — 
We do not hear of a sa9 to day, aud prices must 
be rcgartlcd as nominal. 

The St. Louis Intelligencer of Wednesday 
says: 

Wc have nothing; to report in Hogs. Th* mar- 
ket is well supplied aud prices will not probably 
vary much, if any from last figures. Packers

Dr. Acbllli. 

Mmsb!. Editor-;— lu these times of progress 
RiiJeuligliteunRul, one ualurally fceU a desire lo 
km.iv somitbing respecting those who may present 
themselves lor either instrucliiig or entertaining 
the public. AutuateU by lliis motive, I IVlt curi 
oils to know the history of Achilli, who, as the 
papers intornied us, is engaged to give a course of 
lectures before a most ler.pcetable a.ssociatioii in 
our city; au.l having read in the Morning Courier 
a day or to ago a mere uiilline of his history, it 
only created a desire to learn more aliout him. In 
my'eagernessuijon this subject, 1 chanced to stum- 
ble upon the Dublin liuarterly R?view for March, 
1853, in which I found a somewhat lengthy notice 
of the trial aliudcil I ) in llu; Cmin. r briel ai ti 
cic, namely: I'rosecution of Kev. Dr. Newman 
by Rev. Dr. Achilli for alleged slander; which 
took place in London in 1!^52. It is not my in- 
tention to give a sketch ol that trial, nor of the 
facts cliciud by it. Uul there are foine tliiiiK  
there found which apiiear to me of so much f;ei. 
oral importaace concerning one who comes fi-oni a 
distant land asa champion of knowledge and reli 
gioua fretdom, that I am induced to ask permis- 
sion to lay a few of them before the public, tend- 
ing as tliev do to ^ive us a notion of the distiii 
gushed stringer, and enabling us better to prolit 
by his teaching), sh"u'd wc have the curiosity to 
go to hear him. The Iteview gives Si.nie extracts 
from his lite, written by himself, in which he dis 
covers not a whit too little self-cstoeiu. in ta.'t, this 
trait is BO especially pi-omiiient, that it would e.xcitc 
anv one phreuologically inclined to a strong de- 
sire to test the acciincy of the science, as there 
can be no doubt that the corrcsi oudi[i;; bump in 
his cranium would be found wondi rfally develo[ cd. 
At the age of sixteen he was exceedingly learned, 
and the Dominicans were rather proud of him.— 
Atthirty. he was maestro, to which high rank no 
one had ever attained so early. About this time 
smnethin i ilis'- ■ ' ■ ii place, and at the 

closeof 'l»33 ...i:.-i^  . to surrender his pro- 
fessorship and leave Viterbo Ue speaks ol evil 
report being circulated about him, he was calum 
inated, &c. He say3"l am a sworn enemy to hv- 

pocrisv I had c'c;i8ed to believe in the Mass." 

"I continued to celebrate Mass with a .--how of di 
votiOD. I was perfectly pursuaded of ius impos 
tare. ■ \\'lu5 adiniralile consistency! what an ah 
horreoce for hviwcrisy! While "teaching with 
great zeal the liomish doctrine 1 was no long- 
er a Papist 1 had cea.sed M believe many doc- 
trines w hich are matters of faith in the R.uiiish 
Church." What an emljodiment of siiicerily.— 
A'Miut ihislime, "spiritual light" began to beam 
upon him, that is to suv, he began to tind itttio irk- 
some to live a life of sell denial, and to a.S30Ciatc 
with the good and pious Monks, of one of whom he 
says, "the good old man Wiis always at his prayers. 
He praved even during the night. He was a firm 
upholder of the doctrine cif St. I'aul, that we are 
justified by grace thi-ough laith. He read the |5i 
ble often, and lecominended others to read it.' — 
J)r. Achilli found such a life as this quite too dry! 
and accordingly we find him some yc.\rs attc:- 
wards, sccurlari/.ed, living at Naples "occupyinga 
handsome house; enjoving a little world of Ins 
own, and /irinv sotelij inr himself, "m his own words. 
It appears, however,' that his little world of happi- 
ness was not destined to last, for he is next found 
under an est. The Heview says — 

'We barely piuse to point outa curiou.s roiiici 
deuce — that as he was forced to leave Vileibo soon 
after the e.ises of Valente and Rosa de Alesaii 
drisare alleged to have occurred, so he is arrested 
at Naples just after the case of Principe, most 
certainly, upon his ownadmission.came before the 
Neapolitan )iolice." 

After beiiijj liberated, sajs the Kevicw, he es 
capes to Corlu, and thence to Malta. Here, .il 
though it appeai-s he was claimed by the Papal 
Consul as guilty of crimes, he seems at once to 
have come into favor with certain I'lotcstiiiits. and 
it may be fairly presumed that the scales then fell 
completely from his eye.-;, and his npirilual rryene- 
ro/ion was no longer doubtful. ( If course it was 
quite a useless thing for his new friends to inquire 
what were his antecedents; he wao one just es- 
caped from thed irkiiess of oupeistition, and wlml 
more could be needed! He is "soon installed as 
President of the Prote.^tant College at MalUi." 

Achi Ill's new patrons may now give his charac- 
ter. The Review savs; "They dismissed him 



until it amounted, in the lau- 
to a "public delirium." 
not allowed to put in authen- 
ticated testimony, and as most III the cases had 
occurred in distant countries, it was next lo im- 
possible to procure the aitenilanee of witues-scsin 
person; one imiwrtant witness could not come, be- 
ing in a slate of health not to permit; and of those 
that did come, some were obliged to depart belore 
the trial, which was. it is believed purposely delay- 
ed, came on. During the interval the prosecution 
were employed in trying to induce some of the 
witnesses to withdraw and several of tbeiii did 
disappear. The court ruled that unless all the al- 
leged charges were sustained, no one of them 
should beheld as madeout.butall inu.st lalltogetli 
er. In this way was justice clearly defeated, eith- 
er by unfairness or by legal technicalities. And 
by the self same means was a new trial rcfu.sed. 
The liOndon Times speaks thus of the decision: 

" Time was, when amidst the cheers of a bru- 
tal multitude — on the faith of the impossible and 
self eniitr-:idictorv evidence of dates, lledhje and 
Dangerfield — Kiiglish juries consigned iniiuceut 
men to death, and received from the .ludge the 
shanielul oonimcndatinii that they had acted like 
good Protestants. Has the la|ise of one hundred 
and seventy years lemoved us from those nanow 
prejudices and cruel persecutions, which, in the 
days of the I'upish plot, |ioisoned the pure foun- 
tains of justice, and aitixed an imlelible stigma 
on th"' cli.iraeter of a nation not habitually unfair ' 
or iiihuuiaii ! Will the opinion of the educated j 
classes in this country, and of the great Kuropean [ 
conininuity. ratify tlu- vi iilict whieli has absolved ; 
Achilii ' The witne.'i.ses diJ not break down — 
were not involved in any material contradiction — 
and "tated nothing in which (here was any strong 
Inheri iit improbability. They are simply set 
aside and ili.-lielieved. Who can hope to be be 
lieved when such a mass ol testimony is thrown 
aside IS niirthlc.»3 ' The principle Ufiou which 
this case was decided would put an end to all 
proof by human testimony. 

" V u euu-iider that a great blow has been given 
t'l the jdin'.idstration ot justicv in this country, 
?ind Rijiuan Catholics will have henceforward only 
too g.'od reason for asserting that there is no jus- 
lice I'T them, in cases tending to rouse the Pro- 
testant feelings of Judges and Juries." 
^ Th' Dublin Review also informs us that Achilli, 
alter il.i publication of his character in l»6d. went 
over 1) I'Vanco ; but immediately AI.de Corcelle.;, 
nieml'cr of the National Assembly, published an 
artici" exposing his true character. Hut far from 
seekiei; redrcf-s, or disproving the charges, he be 
took liim.self again to England. 

The Review .says : "We have heard, Irom pri 
vate . 'lurces, (hat Dr. Achilli was called upon by 
his patrons to disprove these charges, but that he 
decliiped lo do more than deny them, which was 
a very different thing indeed, as nothing is more 
e;isy liian denial, especially of what is alledged 
to have occurred abroad. Heliad,or il his conduct 
had been correct, ought to have had friends at 
Capuii. Naple^.and Corfu, and eertjiinly had rela- 
tives it \'itcrbo. and could surely have adduced 
some . ort of 'evidence cif character," as it is called. 
iSo,w e nuderalood, thought the more honorable of 
his pairoiis, who were not at all .satisfied under 
such circumstances with a bare denial." 

The Karl ul Shaftesbury stated : " 'The reasons 
(bat ;uveined the Committee, in dismiiising 
Achil I from the Malta College, were these : We 
lelttli.it if the whole matter were to become pub- 
lic, so great a scandal would be brought upon the 
Colle; e. that we felt, for the sake of fhe iustitu- 
tPon il a ll. lijr the s.ake of morality, and for the 
8.4ke c f llie I'lotestanl religion, there was nothing 
left l  r us but to break upthe coneein, get rid of 
the w hole tran.sactioii, and w.ish our hands of so 
tool a business.' " Thif» statement was made ujion 
the tri il in liOudou. Comment is unnecessary ! 
Itut there must have been conduct behind the 
screen 'if fearful de| ravity, indeed! if these words 
have any aieaniug. 

In .'Vciiilli's Irjok it is implied that he was sus- 
pendcil tioiii the priesthood, and from other sources 
it is known that he was, yet in liisaltidavit to pro- 
cure t:ie prosecution, he says, "he hath never been 
proh.biled from preachingand hearing confession." 

In one of his letters to the coniinittee (of Malta 
College] he speaks of sending Saccares away to 
Sicily . yet in Ids aflidavit he says, ''he hath always 
denied, and it is not true, that he sent away Sac- 
cares; but that he left voluntarily. " 

On the trial his .statements are clearly contra- 
dicted by witnesses, and in such a way and about 
such iiiiittei-s, as to show coiicluMvely that his 
charaeter for truth could not be depeniled upon. 

One can gather from Achilli's own admissions 
that he fell into aposuicy by degrees, as is indeed 
the n;iy with all a| o.states. He says confession

would not allow it; and actually had the impu-

zeal in the cause ol Italian evangelization. — 
This was too much far the charily of the Com 
mittee of the College, and in their own defense 
thev put forward these .statements —

The Review quotes further from the reports of

ILf*We co[iy the following from the Cincinnati 
(iazetteof yestciday: 

The General markets continue quite dull. Hogs 
are in inodei.ite demand only, the short receipts 
failing to in.spire confidence, or impart activity to 
the trade. This is attributable partly to the dull- 
ness of (he ni irket for hog products. There is no 
demand (or the latter, and sales can only be made 
when t'lrced. ami the prices obtainable are much 
lower rel.itively than the current rates for hogs. — 
Flour is steady, with a demand equal to the sup 
ply. Whisky IS rapidly giving way. Freightaare 
scarce, ami declining. 'The coiiditiou of the sea 
board markets, the impossibilily of selling bills, 
ami the uneei iaiii condition of mercantile affairs 
generally check shipment, and a small portion only 
of the produce on hand is being sent forward. 

ttjr.V young lady

Co;.oatiss — In the House of Rcpiesentalivef , 
on Wedncsd:iy, Mr. Keitt, of 3. C, made a 
speec'i against the Kaon Nothings. He cousid. 
crediithe embodiment of all that was evil, and 
coucUided by i^ayiiig : 

" Il (hey suceeeil, they will be mute in the fu-

viidcf. the (haracterof the American people, and 
di fluibs the ■jaiicity of the sociel relation. It was

After Mr. Keitt finished, Mr. Clingman, of 
North Ca-oiina, maile a speech in favor of this 
conntrv becoming mediator between Russia and 
the allieil powers, to bring about a peace. He 
w-as in favor ol leaving the details of the pro 
posed mediation with the President. Mr. Baylcy, 
of Virginia, sahl : 

He had reason to believe and couhl say, with 
entire confidence, from reliable sources of iiifor- 
malien. that from certoiii quarters overtures were 
luide on the part of thif G ivernment, with re- 
spect to this matter, bht on the whole it was not 
thought udvi.sabic for us to iiittrferc with it. —

Pkohibitiox in China. — The most curious item 
of the Cliiiic.ic news, recently received, relates to 
to a proclamation by Yang, the eastern prince, on 
the .subject of temperance. In this he proclaims 
God's aijiioirencc of drunkenness, and .says He has 
sent down his holy comni'iiid, forbidding men to 
drink wine. Yang, theiefore. proceeds to forbid 
all princes and nobles, ministers of .State and peo- 
ple, bictheiii and sisteiv, lo indulge in the use of 
wine, e\en privately, under penalty of being im- 
mediately beheaded. This is even stronger than 
the M iine liquor law.

UThe New Vork Times of Wednesday gives I 
the following epitome of a maguilicenl swindle: j 

The recent suspension of business by the Em- 
pire City Bank has resulted rather seriously to a I 
majority of the Direc'.ors, in consequence of one j 
of llieii number having pieviously become in- 
dcbtcd lo the Institution in the sum ol $ltiO,000. \ 
It seems a gentleniau i f high standing in the 
community, Mr. Samuel l.' ggett, w.is aleadiii" 
member of the Bank direction, and being reported 
to p'lssess wealth, it was deemed no risk to loan 
him large amounts. Since the Bank closed, an 
investigation into the affairs imve taken plf.ce, and 
yeslei-dav itwas discovered that Mr. I.e^^ettoweiJ 
the Bank $100,0011. It was thou-hl his indebted 
ness would not exceed -'0.000, but on fooling up 
accounts, the Directors ascertained tlieir mistake.. 
It is understood that the onerations of Mr. Leg- | 
gett have involved Elijah r. Purdy. Esq.. to the 1 
amount of some 340.000 or J. 50 ,000, by Mr ; 
Purdy 's endorsing a portion of his paper dis 
counted in the lOmpne City Bank. 

.K lew days ago Mr. Purdy was surpri^:ed by the | 
receipt of a letter from Mr. Leggett, in which he , 
stated to Mr. Puidy, that he 'Mr. Pindy,; had I 
Been his bestfrieiid, not excepting his fLeggett's) 1 
father He was exceedingly sorry to say that all 
he owed Mr. Punly he could not piiy him. and he 
inusl look 10 the world Ibr il. ;is before (  o'clock 
than veiling, he i Mr. Leggett,} would be no more! 

Eft Ills were imni"!iately made by Sir. Purdy ; 
and iithers inteieslcd in the Empire City Bank, to 
tind Mr. Leggell, but the efforts were unsuccessful, 
as they were iiiforeied he had not lieen seen since

all the air of an offeiidMl queen.

riie sequel ttiis related to me by the lady her-

My friend kept his promise, called the next

as he was about lo speak to li' r, hei two friends 
stepped forwHi J, each witli a hoi-se-whip in his

"I expected this, geiitleii.cn, but I am prepar-

ivhicii is injurious tu a community and to individ- 
uals There is au intemperance of temperance 
it=clf which is worse than thc iuiemperance of the 
li'(uid— at least, it is a yuiV/ pro yuo. Reason, and 
ri;;ht, and pi-udenre, are limits beyond which the 
pi-olessed reformer should not go, and when he 
C1OS6CS this boundaiy. he becomes fanatical and a 
merciless tyrant, ami a (le.^t anda curse to society. 
CoiDpulsiou and force have swallowed up the first 
and c-T^recl piinciplc on which tlie primeval efforts 
w ' le built to diuinish intemperance. Thc tem- 
perance reformers ihioughout thc country have 
b' come fanatics, and formed themselves into a 
junto of iwliticiil de.sperajoes ot temperance, and 
a-i you say, are btaded by uuscrupulous p ilitician3 
yilio are willing to ride my iiorse, no matter how 
vicious, if they ore i.nlv l.inded at the d'or of 
P'livei-. The opposition to this temperance movi-- 
nii lit is founded on just principles of civil free- 
d on and constitutional riyht. If they have t'neir 
w in . these reformers will not only disregard public 
u.'-.iiioii, but will enctoach on private right.i. and 
ti.impic on that sentiment of ptrsonal liberty 
K hicii is the si roiigesl passion of our people; and 
Civil lights will become a mere moonshine that 
ni.i\ be extinguished by every cloud of mad fan-

says: "The next most prominent topic of conver 
gation here is an impending iiersonal declaration 
of waragainst (ien. Sam. Houston. It is an affair 
which has been held in suspense for n good many 
year-i, but which a certain speech, within the last 
year, of Houston's, ha.s brought to a crisis. Some 
of the old founders of the Texas Hepublie arc im- 
plicated. With ilio arrival of Houston, Gen. 



milc!. fnim Waldren, has exploded three times : he did not seem to be Ihiiiking of himself,l)ul ex 
luring the last week. The explosions were very j claimed 
loud and terrific, causing the earth around to 



and smoke, and hurling red hot stones into the 
 ilmospherf . and filling the valllrs aronnd with 
melted lava.

We have no iJiange to note in the .Money market.— 
Kxchani^e is very firm at 1 IPcl and scarce. The bulk 
of Ihe January payments are not due until the 4lli, but 
BO far such as has become due have been very jiroinpt- 
ly met. There is some demand for money, bul leillo 
half sogreat an extent as lu the besrinningof Dceeiii-

crisis is over, and that business and money matters will 
be much easier from Ihls liiiio forward.
