As soon as the fire broke -lit, the Governor ordered the W atorport gate to be opened, and n roc ceded himself, to the wharf, from whence ho despatched two engines undercharge of tlio artillery and sappers; but in spilo of tlio united efforts of the crow ol tho .Missouri and her trie')!.' ly auxiliaries, the piMgrut of i.'iu Ihmes, which At one tune appeared to ho got under, was sucn, that at length Capt.

The order was then given by Capt. Newton for all to quit the ship, which was done immedi ately by the crow taking the water, and iccciv ing the assistance of the boats sent, in anticipa tion of the exigency, from the Malabar, and from the vessels in the harbor. Such was Iho state of tho shin, when the officers and crow left her, that they saved nothing but wh it they had on Capt.

Nothing can bo truer than the doctrine in culcated in the above paragraph. Every Agriculturist knows that tho more mechan ics and manufacturers he has in his neighbor hood, the more customers has ho fur tho surplus productions of his farm ; and tho beauty of the rulo is, tlitit it works both ways. While the farmers find good ensto mors for what produce ihey may luivo to sell, tho mechanics and manufacturers find in the farmers, purchasers for the fabrications of their respective trades and arts. But should thr. loco focos prevail in getting a majority in both branchss of our national legislature, the tariff toill be so remodelled as to take away every feature which ensures protection to American labor ; the workshops which now adorn our country, add to its wealth, givo employment to our peoplo, and the means of subsistence to themselves and families, will bo broken up, and those work shops toill be transferred from America to England. Wo say this, becausn it is obvi ous to us, that tho well-fed nnd well-paid American workmen cannot, without protec tion from government, compete with the ill- fed and ill-paid workmen of Europe. Let it bo recollected - by Amemcan Mn- ciianics, Laborers, and Manufacturers, 'that in tho debate in tlio Senate nf the Uni ted Slates, in 1839, Mr. Buchanan, who is now a loco foco candidate for the Presiden cy, contended that American labor was too high ; that it must be reduced, and that 10 cents a day was enough for a laborer.

It becomes our painful duty to record the death of another soldier of the Revolution, in tho dcniiso of David Ki'ssct.i., Esq., ol this town, who died at tho residence of his son, Dr. J. P. Russell, Army Surgeon, wlulo on a visit at Governors Island N. Y. on tho 3d Inst. Tho final attack of the des troying messenger, tho' sudden nnd unex pected found him not unprepared, ho sig nified a pious resignation to ihe will of Heav en, and expressed in his last hours n firm belief in the religion he had fur years open ly professed. A few rommsconccs of hii useful life may not bo improper in giving this obituary notice. Mr. Russell after leaving (ho nrmy of tho Revolution in which he had been early en g.igud, came to this State, previous to its be ing admitted into tlio Union. In 1783, lie engaged with and entered into tho Printing business nl Bennington, with Antiionv Has well, Esq., under whose auspices during that year iho Vermont Gazelle (u paper still published by the dependents of Mr, 1 1 as well) was established, strongly advora ling thu claims of Vermont previous to her admission into the Union. In 1784 the Legislature of this State established five Post Offices, one at Bennington, one at Jiiitlann, one at Brattlcborro , one at Windsor, and one at Newbury. Mr. Has well, the seiner partner in the concern was uppointed Post Muster General, Mr. Russell discharging its duties; upon iho admission of Vermont into the Union in 1791, Ihe Post Offices in this Statu became a part of Iho Post Office establishment under the con Irol of the General Government, and Mr, Russell was appointed Post Master at Bun uiiigton he continued in that office until he was appointed Collector of Customs fur tho Distiict of Vermont, when in 1797 here moved to Burlington, anil entered upon the duties of his office nnd continued therein until superseded by Dr. Jiibez Pennimiiii.- Mr. Russell was at an cuily day appointed agent for the erection of the fiist College average majority of 1H0 votes lliis year thru Whigs, hy an average of 58, making a Whig ain of 194 votes. The votes polled was 1417, it being tho largest votes ever given in Chatham County.

He was defeated in 1840 by Loa; Cabins, Coon Skins, nnd Cider Barrels! Surely a man who could bo overthrown by such competitors must be very strong in the nostrils of the People, at least. Such

John Jones is indulging in a scries of ve ry learned and elaborate essays upon tho " Designs of llio British Government." Ono of the essays contains a piece of in formation which will be received by our readers with a feeling very near akin to amazement. Hero it is : " Great Rriliin rarely ntlaclis nn enemy openly and boldly. Il was only at the closing scene of the ca reer of Napoleon, lhat liritisb troops marched upon Ihe sod of I'ninee; and yet no nation contributed more 10 produce ihe I-'inperor's overthrow. Tha I Itriiisb navy swept iho French flaj from the ocean. and Ihc lirilish Oibinel enlisted Iho mercenaries of Kurope lo wage an interminable war bv land. Al though Napoleon scarcely ever siw nu F.nghsh sol dier in any of bis great ba'tlU, exi-eplini the last, yet it is notorious that ilin in.' bis w bole hie, in all hia cainpaiuns, he never ceased to regard Great Britain as his most impheable foe, nnd t.) attribute all hia dia asters 10 the inilign.int operations of that power." We should have thought that the occupa tion of Toulon, early in the French Revo lution, llio victory of 1st June, 1794, and tho invasion of Holland and Egypt werr things not iluno in a corner, to say notion- ol tho landing of 11 large English force et tho Co itiuent in 1805, the expedition under Lord .Chatham nnd tho wars of the Penin sula, which look place at a later period. The British Navy, it seems, " swept ihe French flag from the ocean," but this of course was not done " openly and boldly." It must have been done, in a clandestine and cowardly manner. The fact is, that Pitt's policy of fighting Franco by means of mercenaries, was n false, and very nearly a fatal policy ; but there was nothing of con cealment in it. It seems, though, that Brit ish troops did not march upon the soil of Franco until near the close of Napoleon! reign ! Will John bu good enough lo let ui know what other troops besides the British dull Wc had always thought that Franc was not invaded until the reverses in Russia, brought the whole Alliance upon her, and that Wellington entered the South of Franc at the same lime that llio Sovereigns enter ed tho North. We suppose, however, John, like his young master, " abhors British Hi- 1 lorv." Richmond Whig.
