An Answer to fanaticism* On our first page will be found h comprehensive epitom ? of the masterly letters of Governor Ham mond of South Carolina, on slavery. These letters were written in reply to Thomas Clurkson, the no torious English Abolitionist, whose latter years, to (!<?; number of twenty-five or thirty, have been de voted to affortt against slavery, in every shape, hut above all as it exists in the United States. A greater t in t*ie does not exist than Clarkson ; he was' that al ways. hut in recentdays he appears to be more rabid th in ever, which perhaps may be owing to thestimulu. >rdedby the abolition of slavery in the W. Indies. That measure was hailed as a mighty triumph for h ? cause and it-s advocates ; anJ like most men of i small cal : bre, they became inebriate with success, and parted with all discretion in their excess of vain glory. Nothing would satisfy them but the over throw ot slavery here, and accordingly the mos' 'lutrageous system of libelling, taunting und ma ligning th hs country on account ot one of her social institutions, has become, not only common, hut uni * ersitl in Great Britain. V person who visits England, for the first time, i on any country of civilized man, is forcibly struck niih the narrow prejudices that i>ervade the mind* of all, from the highest to die lowest. Jt is this; troug and blind admiration for everything English, j a il hatred of all that is not, that makes the charac- j t> . ot the country a subject o. mockery abroad, and | iddieathome. Gre at is th" surprise of an Ame rican, who immediately after landing is introduced j to society, to tin ! that he and his country are j wronged, misunderstood, and perseveringly misre- j presented. In vain his republican candour strives to [ ' orrect errors; his habitual plainness of speech, and ! directness of thought, are poor matches for the j tw iddle of those who will not think. It is a ; hopeless t isk to remove the impressions implant- ! ed on an Lnelish mind, if they at all relate ! to subjects of national vanity, or, what is as much a part of the selves ? depreciation of the Uni- ! 'ed .States. ( ?ne everlasting theme is present with : them ; ehuse them f rom all other fastnpss^s and ! they tike tin ir stand upon slavery. On this they ! erect th ? batteries of their wrath, and were it not I that they are bad marksmen, and that truth is invul- ! nerable, th.-re would be little safety within the Ame- i i ican line . O.i ? of : 1 1 :? most complete answers to English bra- j idocio that has ever been published are the letters j of Judge Hammond. To say nothing of the style, their fuun tness. calmness, and manly tone, at once ; -triki1 the reader of ta- te. He does not come for- : Ward gratuitously to enter into a squabble with id!e r.iers, nor for sak'* of attracting notice ; but lie ifts his >en and write.- a vindication of his country rom th - reproaches of the malicious and the igtio- j i nt, and such an one too, lis Clarkson and his con- 1 ???derate- will he slow to digest. The * ^dividual ,iust named had gratiiied his pen ? lant by writing a series of malignant letters on I erican slavery, and when we consider the .vidity with which such aliment is devoured by ? eaders on the other side of the Atlantic, who ? ever drf*am that there arc two sides to a story, and who test th>* truth of what they are told by the ^ndard of their foregone conclusions? it was desiiable that a triumphant answer should go torth, *uen as is furnished by these letters. ? The pamphlet is small, and altera perusal, the reader is struck with the universality and relevancy of the topics i; embraces. It is truly argumentative. ? Those who make out slavery a sin on script ura] grounds are met by an appeal to God's word. So complaint can he mad<* by those who bring all the r* tions ? iit ? to the test of revelation, of the ques t ion bcinv iiift solely upon other grounds : for in the very outset ot his arguments he concedes that i/ slavery can be proved to be without the sanction ot cri|>t'.ire. he will admit its sinfulness, and urge th?* j immediate emancipation of the slaves. As to the expediency of the abolition of American slavery, Judge H., after settling the religious ques tion, shows it is an entire delusion. In this connec tion he contends that the grund experiment of West India einanci|> .tion has proved a failure. Tliere^ twenty millions of money were filched out of the i>ockets of a starving domestic population of white paupers, to try what would be the eliect of its b 'stowai on a lithe of the number of black slaves. Koinantic rogues have been read of, who used to rob Peter in order to pay Paul, but the exaction of twenty million!* pounds sterling from the .-tarvini: operatives of i Ireat Britain, to carry out the vision- . ary projects of pretended friends of the negro, is ; 'vithout parallel tor niori.1 obliquity and folly, as the 1 i -suits have proved. But again, it is properly argued j tha' its success in the West Indies would be no ground for urging it here, until a similarity between *iie two cases could be shown. Differences broad a id insuperable are seen at a glance. In the West India Islands the question as to the disposal of slaves .Iter emancipation doep not obtrude itself with the ?>rce it assumes in the c ise of the United States. ? o abolitionist can get over that difficulty. Let him 'MM.n on abstract i < tions of right and wrong, and may have some coherence, but when ? vrr tne inquiry turnr iqwrn practical, real objects, lie is confounded. Another very interesting portion of the letters nn ?r consideration, i? that wherein the writer consi >i-rs the social eiieei* of slavery, ??r ratlier those at tributed to it in the I'uited States by foreign aboli tionists. He very conclusively shows thet theit -tateinentti as to the moral turpitude of the slave holding regions arc falsehoods that the morality of England, on the authority ol parliamentary evi dence, will not bear a comparison with that of the Southern Stated ; that far lean crime js committed in proportion to the population ; that those which are , erprtrated Hre not of the flagitious enormity of '.ivrli-h crime. He shows there is less misery mon<: -lave- a rid slaveholders ? more of the enjoy ments of existence and contentment, than is found With those who turn up their eyes in pious horror of lavery, r.nd like the Pharisee of old, exclaim lyord, 1 thank thee 1 am not as other men are." ? il is not entinl to his cause to prove that instance? of ih" ibuserf power do not occur among slave holders ; abuse- of the best gift* of the creator are unfortunately too abundant over all his domain. ? It were vain to s|>end time m proving the fu tility of at lacking institutions because of thtit "buses, and it seem* alni'-t as unpromisim to argu<* with the fanatics called abolitionists, whether foreign or native, who would mak' the exceptionable conduct of a few grace! ens slave holders the ground for an indiscriminate attack oi the south. In the north we are told by Garrison ant Phillips ? in the west by Cnssiu* M. (May, and thei lollowers,that the south is guilty of sin, violence, op ressioH and trnmpling under foot the Constitution ( 'l oss the Atlantic and we bear 'hat all this is done m America, not by the southern Elates or any set ol ?>u*s. but by the whole United States of America. ? i; ;i c f iheuortii I'ft-l .my thins lik* ini-j- ? i ?? , in being invi lvd in this iudiscriniin ?.? cens'in Whether they do or nor. what can they do but p< up with it so long a? they do the same thin?, in P rl tr.iiing outrageous libels on the whole sou li tor t c cruelty of a few slaveowners- Moreov er, it i? n memorable fact tint those who most abuse their =?1 tves, who treat them most harshly, art a most ex clusively from other s ctions of the Union, 111 the , majority of instances from the north. , A perusal ol these able letters will convey an accurate j impression of the merits of the issue between slave- , holders and their opponents. In what a diflerent light tne institution wiilappearto the eyes ot a candid ; umn who reads them. In it he can bee nothing thft' , deserves the tierce denunciations made against it; j instead of that, he perceivos various reasons tor be coming its defender instead of itsfou ; he will learn j from the state of other nations, that bating the name, ! there can be ureater abuses than American slavery; he will cease to pursue excellence in the form ol an abstraction, and be niore than ever content with the abundant blessings tint are copious^ and continu ously poured out on this tavored country, one ol I whose institutions is negro slavery. Mock Auction Stokes. ? Can no law be introdu ced to put a check to the wholesale plunder that is daily taken from the unsuspecting traveller, who may be gulled, into these inlatnous dens ol extor tion and peculation. Tlie barefaced robberies that daily take place before our eyes in these stores, should forthwith attract the attention ol the Police; and call forth their most active energies. It the Police of our city could but succeed in putting down these vile traps for the plunder of the innocen* aid unsuspecting sojourners,1 ?who may chance to visit our city ? and the poor Kmigrant, who, with his 'ast dollar may in his blindness be lured into the dens of these land-sharks ? they would do an act of public service ? nay, charity ? which the fiitire community would be grateful for. If a police ollicer, or some subordinate, were directed to re main stationed, opposite each door, where these hirpies carry oil operations every day, having a printed placard with the words, " Beware of the Muck Auction Dens," printed thereon, it would soon have the eflect to route them away, and the 1 iw would uphold the police in this praiseworthy act. We have just heard of a case where a poor emigrant has Ln'en fleeced, yesterday, in Chatham street, out of $6."? in the twinkling of an eye, with out receiving five dollars worth in return. Really, the Chief of Police, Mr. Matsell, ought forthwith to try his hand to route these harpies, who infest not lone the purlieus of our city, but carry on their efarious Derations even in Broadway. We ear nestlv invite the attention ol the Chief of Police to this vile system of peculation, that would seem to defy the law, carried on in our very leading public streets and thoroughfares. The Stage*? Common Council. ? Amongst the many abuses that exist in the omnibus system, '.here is none more dangerous, at the present season, than that of allowing the stages to get largely crcwdcd, from an over-allov.ance of passengers, as to render it a difficult task to venture into one of them. We have seen repeated instances of this kind, where passengers are so pressed upon as to resemble so many skewered turkeys in an eating house, broiling j near the kitchen fire. The manifest danger that must result from such a system, calls (or the imme diate action of the Board of Common Council, who -hould pass an ordinance restricting, nay, lessening the ordinary amount of passengers prescribed by the (?resent law, for the regulation of the stages. The cruel treatment which horses receive from drivers ? the utt?r disregard of the owners as to consequences provided they can keep their lines in oi?eration, has led to much loss ot life, within the last few weeks, amongst these poor animnU, who have sunk down and expired from over fatigue and cruel treatment, upon the very pavements. The Common Council owe :t solemn duty to the public in relation to the numerous abuses that have existed in the omnibus i system; and, as they will meet on Monday. \>erhups for the last time, until after the recss, a short bill prohibiting an excess .1 lowance of pas^ngcrs in the omnibuse: . for the balance of the present month, and, 1 also, for the month of August, would be a irreat boon j to our citizens. Tkhkiblk Fires.? The recent Jire in Matanzas swells the list of the great conflagration of 1*43. They began 111 lUrbndoes, destroying property to j the value of ?"2, OUO.OOO ; then Pittsburg suilered to the amount of Sf ,000.000 : then Quebec was nearly ?-wept tiorn the face ot the earth, throwing 20,000 houseless 011 to the world : and new Mutanzas has h id her share of trouble by a devastating tire, de 1 straying $1,000,000 or more in property of various | kinds. Surely misfortunes never come singly. Texan Affairs. ? We give in another column several extracts from lute Texas |m|iers, received at thisotlice, exhibiting the condition of things in that Republic. They ure interesting, esjiecially now, wh'-n it is so certain that Texas is to be one of the United States. And they contain some curious de velopments well worth a t-itrht in this age. Steam Ship Acadia ? This steamer left Hoston on Wednesday for Liverpool with one hundred and 1 seven passengers. Among tli ? number are the Hon. Louis McLane, the new Minister to England, and Mr. McHenry Boyd, attach^* to the legation. Croton Water.? The How of water from the hy ; dr.ints is to be stopped for one week.

TlirntrlrnU, Thk Pakk. ? Lost night, the French company gave Lt* Petiu* Mine res del i vit hwnmnt, a very comi c?l pi 'y, and Lt La pi tame Charlotte, another one lull ot' very amusing incidents, and ot a very fasci natin ; character. Mons Muthieu, who acted in b )th, wa?, what he always is, much applauded by 1 the audience. M'lle Eugenie also played in both ; P'-ays, and was much admired for the naiveti of her acting. M'lle Eugenie is a very young artist, but i though young, she is a very talented one. She had I already been much applauded in " Im graet dt D ft*,'' which the company represented at their for ! mer visit, and very lately in " Lcs Premieres I armes de Richelieu.'" But last night was the first time we had s-^en |her in two different vaudevilles on tin* same night, and she went through both to the j entire satisfaction of all. Mad. Richer acted also in hot 1 plays, but all praises have been so well ex hausted in her favor, that we can only say that shf went through her imrts with the same tact Hnd talent, which have made her so great a favorite with the amateurs of vaudevilles. M'me Cciiuriot, who acted the part " J >u Cupitaine Charlotte," in the play of i that n mie, was perfectly successful in the delinea tion of that eccentric character. This, however, did nut surprise us Jin the least, we had seen M'me Cceuiiot in '? I as Premieres armes dt Richelieu,'' and we were pretty well satisfied that she was no less a good comedian than a delightful singer. ? Dessonville heli>ed much by his great comical and highly intelligent acting, to increase the mirth'of I the spectators, and Mr. Montassier, who was much applauded a few nights ago as " Don Cesar de Ba | /.an," and in " Les Premieres armes de Richelieu," was no less dans icn rfilf in this play. Mr. Ber nard, a comedian of great merit, who has been much admired in many operas, among others, "Le Domino Noir," " Les Diamans dc la Couronne," <kc. Sec., acted in the first piece only, but there, as ever, proved himself a perfect master of his art In addition to these plays, two overtures were played? the overture ^to " Le Ch?val de Bronze," and that to " Stmirumide." Mr. Baptiste, who led the orchestra, and all the musicians who compose it, deserve a great deal of praise for the skilful man" ner in which they went through their arduous task. At last we shall have, this evening, La Fille du Regiment, the {celebrated Operm Comiqut, by Donizetti, so well known amongst us and so admired every where. M'lle Calve will ap pear as the Suttler Marie, and we shall have the pleasure of hearing again the Sulut a la France, one of the most popular and exciting songs ever written. The other artists of the company will aid the favor ite prima donna, and the performance will begin with a delicious vaudeville, l.< Roman d'une Heurt, (a romantic position for one hour,) one of the most exquisite plays of the Thtatrc Francais, which will be performed by Mme Richer the gem of the com pany : M'lle Maria, the dramatic actress, and Mr. Montassier. Ija Juive will be played cn Monday night, as Mr. Cieuriot is getting better every day. Mks. Mowatt ? The Honey Moon at Nibi.o's. ? The first appearance of Mrs. Mowatt in Comedy, drew crowds to the Garden Theatre last evening; and our young American actress achieved a new histrionic triumph. Her Juliana was a most charm ing and original performance, evincing great versa tility of talent, and disarming criticism by its effec tiveness and truth to nature. She trod the stage with the samejgrai'eful self-possession which she displayed in Pauline, and seeme-i to lose herself en tirely in her assumed character. The piece was well cast. Chippendale's Lopez wni capital. Nothing could he more uniusing than his dance with Juliana Crisp played with more than his wonted spirit; and Miss Taylor, T. Placide, Sefton, and the other per formers, all acquitted themselves effectively. Mrs. Mowatt has elevated herself greatly in the estimation j of the best critics by this performance. She repeats the part to-night. Cactus Gakoek. ? l-ast night there was a great treat ut this fine place of resort; the house as ever was very well attended, and by their numerous aj - plauses, the audience proved how delighted they were with the performance. This is a place we re commend to the lovers of fun and comfort, it being the coolest and a very delightful place of amuse ment in these sultry days. Vai:xhai.l. ? This garden was pretty well attend ' ed, and all who had resorted there expressed them selves very highly pleased with the performance Fhis being a very agreeable place to spend a sum mer evening, we call the attention of our friends to it. und we doubt not but they will feel delighted after having paid it a visit. Continued Hot Weather ? We are still suffer ing from inti-nae heat. Our dead house is full of the victims of ice water and a rotip de tnlitl. The Coroner has more than he can attend to in holding inquests, and the prospect for cooler weather is afar off. All the deaths and disasters resulting from the weather are given under the city intelligence head in each day's paper, and the list is a sad one. I would b<- well for out-door laborers to leave ofi work f rom fl to 4 o'clock each day so long as this great heat continues. The mercury yesterday noon was up to 92? J and 93? nt 3 o'clock in the afternoon. Other places continue to suffer ulike with us. We annex the latest particulars : ?

July 10 ] The drough' continues in this quarter of the State, and we presume through the greater part of it, with un rela\cd intensity, accompanied by excessive heat. ? There has been no ruin now for more than a fortnight, when it was too slight to be of much servico. The air is scorching hot and parching dry. Serious and well grounded alarm begins to lie entertained in various quar ters of the country lor the corn. The highland corn in tassle is firing at the bottom, and rapidly approaching an irrecoverable state. The gardens are burnt up, and the pastures almost dry stubble. In a short time, if the drought continues, it will be necessary to fodder the cattle. fFrom Baltimore Clipper, July 16.] The heat was ngain oppressive y esleiday? and the scorching rays of the sun beyond endurance.

During the whole day quite n pleasant breeze was blowing, but it appeared to have little effect on the I heated atmosphere. We repeat our caution in regard to drinking cold water while in a heated state, duiing the | present weather.

The consequence was that many vessels ac cotni anied the squadron, who showed themselves equal sailors, although carrying a greater amount ol tonnage, but at the same time an equal amount o' sail in proportion to their size. The morning was most beautiful, a light, gentle breeze from the S.S.W. prevailed when the boats were at anchor oti' the Klysian Fields, Hoboken. At about twenty five minutes before uine o'clock, the steamboat "Wave" was in readiness, and started from the foot of Barclay street for the* na tion, having on board some ten or a dozen ladies, and iiliout double the number of gentlemen, together with an editor and his assistant, and a reporter from another paper; the former was afforded every information, while the latter, having some know ledge of such uflairs previously, could judge lor himself, and consequently felt |>erfectly at ease. Matters would have been entirely different in this res|>ect if the worthy Commodore or Secretary had been on board the steamer, but they were required elsewhere, and consequently the will must betaken for th? deed. About nine o'clock the "Wave" reached the sta tion, and after some brief preliminary arrangements, the diri'erent vessels were placed in their proper sta tions. according to the following programme: ?

At the Quarantine a boat with a (tag will be stationed, ! which the yachts must pass to the north and west, leav : ing it on the larboard hand. After passing this boat, ! they must haul over to the eastern side of tho Bay, to round another boat with a blue flag, which they must pass to the north and cast; leaving it on the starboard hand, they will run down for the S. W. Spit Buoy, which they must pass to the north and oast, leaving that on the starboard hand. In returning, the same rules are to be observed, ex cepting that the western boat is to bo nassed to the south and west, leaving it on the starboard hand, and the east em boat to the south and cast leaving it on the larboard hand. Kvery yacht will he required to hoist her distinguish ing flag in passing the starting boat on her return, pass ing the station boat to westward. They nil kept in this relative position to reaching the shore near Jersey City, where the sloop ?'Vin cent Uirkelow" went to the windward and took t!i" wind out of the sails of the " Minna"' and "Lan cet" in succesion. They maintained their course thus, accompanied by several vessels? tacked to wards the battery, running close under Bedlow's Island, beitur a good course for the channel.

Then came the "Spray." Tliey made a most bcnutiful run for the flag-boat on the eastern shore, which they rounded much in the same manner, and bore away for the S.

They al! rounded the buoy in most beautiful style, running so close that some on board the steamer thought it would have been run down. Keti rn. ? They proceeded thus with little or no alteration, with the exception of the "Gimcrack" taking the lead from the "Coquille." It appeared as if the Commodore had thought he had been lone enough behind, and was determined to go ahead The three first kept well together with the lead across the west shoal, running close into the land below the telegraph ; the Commodore and the ' Minna," bore rather more to the eastward, evi dently losing ground considerably, which they found out ere they reached the point, for they were driven upwards of n mile and a half to the leeward, during which the " Minna" struck on u shoal. In the meanwhile, the " Addy" lost too much ground, tacked round and stood down the channel, evident ly giving up the contest. The others stood on their onward course, and from the point below the tele graph ran across to pass the lhig boat on the eastern shore ? a mistake which lost them considerable space. The steamer with the committee on board, was too far astern to make them aware of this fact in time to prevent it. hi the meanwhile, the "Gimcrack" came to the windward considerably, and bore down for the western flag boat, which she just reached as the three others crossed from the eastern to pass it, nnd every one on board the steamer thought that in consequence she would take the lead and reach home in advance; but not so, just as she came within about three lengths ot the boat, and was preparing to tack, she missed stays or something else, and the "Cygnette," and the others went round before her, keeping the lead, thus per forming near upon two miles more than their followers. Now the contest was most beautiful ? the "Cygnetfe" taking the lend ? "Sybil" second ? "Gimcrack" third ; "Syren" fourth ; "Spray" hfth. A pood breeze here sprung up and bore away most valiantly, in such a style us never before has been seen in this locality. This was continued from Staren Island homeward in most beautiful style; the "Gimcrack" gaining con siderably on those in front of him as they proceeded i )n approaching the east river, the three foremo.-t ippeared not a half a dozen lengths apart. The New burgh tar to the leeward, and appeared as if in irons, making little or no way. The steamer Wave hav ing come in front of them, moored off the flag-boat, it the home station, opposite the Club Station House. Klysian Fields. Shortly after the "Cygnette" made her appearance round the bluff, neiir the Sybil's Cave, and w. s greeted with cheers. She was closely followed by the Sybil, in whose wake was she Gimcrack, little more iliaa a length in her wake. A little bit of u breeze from the Highlands it this moment, sprung up, and the "Commodore" ! made h brush for it and (rimed about a length on the Sybil, but shortly alter fell back to his original position, and the Cygnette came round the flag :>oat in beautiful style, which was announced by a piece of ordnance on board the steamer, amid cheer frcm those on board numerous vessels near the station, and which were echoed by those on the shore. The Sybil followed, succeeded bytheGim I crack, the others much in the same position as be fore in >ntioned. I The following is a summary of the arrival i? o'clk. m. ?.

The whole uflair throughout was extremely we'l ; managed, particularly when it is taken into consi lerution ill it only two days had been taken to pet the wiiole affair up. The club must be pirticululy indebted to Geo. W Blunt, Eso., its principal of the committee, and Col.

[From the Houston Telejj^q^ July J ] We (liil uot receive a copf ofTIm fTupositious made by our Secretary of State to the Mexican government, un til Thursday morning last. We bitterly regret to say that they are more disgraceful and dishonorable to Tex as than we had anticipated. Although they are dated at Washington on the Brazos, we still hope, for the credit of our government, that they were concluded at Galves ton, and that the Executive and his Cabinet knew noth ing of them until a cony was sei.t hy Dr. Smith to Wash ington. Better would it have been if the hand that sign edthem had been paralyzed, ere the diigraceful act was consummated. We learn from the Norlktm Standard, that a large number of emigrants have settled in the Red Itiver coun ties within the last two months. We learn from the La Grange Intelligencer, that a par ty of fifteen or twenty persons have recently gone on an expedition to the Coneho, a small tributary ot the Colo rado hear thi San Saba, to examine the minerals in that section. It is believed that many valuable mineral* are situated upon the headwaters of the Colorado. The first returns of the election in Montgomery county that we published were incorrect. Ail the piecincts have at last been heard from, and it appears that the members elected to the Convention are lien. Houston, Judge J. Scott, Mr. McNeil, and A. M. Lewis. This is the only county in the Republic that is entitled to four delegates ; but by a singular train of circumstances it is now utmost certain that it will bo repro^nted by only three delegates Gen. Houston is absent on a visit to the Hermitage ; and we have learned within a few days thai a letter was received from him by the last boat, in which he stbted that it would be impossible for him to return in season to attend the Convention. The remarkably low stage of water in the Ohio and Cumberland rivers will prevent him from making the journey to Nashviile in as brief a period as he at first exacted. It is a singu lar fact that accideutal circumstances prevented him from attending the former Convention when the Consti tion was framed. Although his name is attached to that instrument, he never signed it : for at the time that it was adopted (if it ever was adopted) by the Convention, he was with the army near Gonzales. It is not a little amusing to note in his messages aud other public docu* ments the reverence that he professes to entertain for the Constitution : though in convivial parties he has re peatedly declared that this instrument was a selemn lor gery, for the clerks put his name to it without his know ledge or consent, and he doubted whether the members of the Convention ever saw the Constitution until it ap peared in the New Orleans papers. Certain it is that no engrossed or enrolled copy of this instrument signed by the Trosident aud members of the Convention has been on file in the State Department, and the onlv instrument that deserves the name of Constitution is the printed copy that was adopted by the people at the election in September, 1836. A quorum was formed in each House of Congress on the ltith inst , and the Message was delivered on the suc ceeding day. The only local question that has yet been proposed with any prospect that it will bo entertained, relates to the German Colony in the West. The Count of Castel and Prince of Leiningen have petitioned Congress for alprolongation of the period allotted to the colonists to bring emigrants to Texas. They state, that as " the resolutions tauen by the Congress of the United States concerning the annexation of Texas, have some wnat alarmed tho association, it is to be apprehended that the uneasiness created by this measure in Kurope, will lor the momont prevent many from emigrating to Texas, and render it (thereforo impossible, or at least difficult, for the association to fulfil its engagements." We learn that many of the members of Congress are not disposed to grant the prolongation of the period desired by the petitioners. They consider that the annexation ot Texas to the United States will prove beneficial to the colonists, nnd that it ought to encourage rather than re tard any emigration of that description that would be likely to benefit the State, and they do not wish to afford facilities to emigrants who would not as readily identify their fortunes with the United States as with trie Repub 'lie of Texas. Othors, however, are willing to grant all tho terms that the petitioners desire, believing that the introduction of emigrants of any description, by increas ing tho number of old laborers in the country, will pro portionately increase the national wealth. It is to bo feared that this bill will therefore lead to a protracted de bate, and will prevent the Congress from adjourning at ?n early day. As many of the members of the present Congress, however, are also delegates to the Convention, it is possible that the session will close by the 30th inst. in order that the delegates may attend the Convention at Austin on the -Hli of July. The planters of several of the interior couutiei of Tevas have been steadily extending th* culture of wheat during the last five years ; especially in ttie un dulating regions of Texas, where tho limestone rocks abound. The crops this year are probably five-fold greater thnn they have ever been before ; and in some actions the peotilo have raised sufficient of this valuable grain for the domestic consumption. In Washington county, it is estimated that at least 3,04)0 bushels of wheat have been raised, and 10 or 12 000 bushels have been raised iu Fayette, Travis and Bastrop counties. In die Ited River counties, probably li or 20,000 bushels will be raised. Several flouring mills have been erect ed in different parts of the Republic, and the Hoar manu factured from this wheat is in many instances preferred to the imported llour. The amount of cotton received at Houston during the !>ast year exceeded fourteen tiiousuud bales ; and we have neon informed by the proprietor of the cotton pres? in this city, that the whole amount of the old crop that M ill be leceived, will amount to about fifteen thousand hale*. He has made diligent enquiries of the planter* as they arrived relative to the quantity of new ground that they are cultivating this year, and the increased pro duct that tliey expect ; and ho estimates that the cotton crop in this vicinity, this year, will be more than a third larger than it was last year. lie believes that at least J.1) ,000 bales of cotton Will bo shipped from this city du ring the year ending in July, 1840. Five years ago, the cotton shipped from this city scarcely amounted to 1,000 bales. Two vessels, tho Ferdinand and Johann Dcthard, late ly arrived at Galveston, from Germany, with 18/i Ger man emigrants. It is reported that eighty or ninety of these emigiants intend to proceed immediately to the colony near Seguin, and the remainder will settle in dif ferent parts of the country. This is rather an unfavora ble season for them to remove to a climate so much warmer than their own : hut if they avoid undue expo sure to the sun at noon day and am careful in their diet, they may pass the summer without suffering much in convenience from disease.

John Lambert vs. John Denning, Otietr .luni eomery and Daniel Wemarando. ? This was an action for ao assault and battery alleged to have been committed by the defendants, who are the captain and the first and se cond mates of the ship Mexican, on her last voyage from Valparaiso, via New Orleans, to this port. The assault, it was alleged, was committed on the 26th of June, be tween tho two latter ports, whilo the vessel was at sea ? The captain laying it on rather thick and heavy with ? rope, aided by the two mates. The defence set up was that Lambert refused to perform certain duties coming within tho scope of his business, and the captain and his aids therefore considered themself justified in compell ing him to " keep an eyi out in the oltlng." Verdict this forenoon. An Abolition Moil ? Great Chy and Littl* Wool. ? A very ludicrous performance hasjustcorne off in our city, which has gainod imperishable laurels to some of the distinguished philanthropists of the liberty party. John Munn, Esq., formerly a resident of this place, but now residing in Mississippi, a few days since arrived here with his family, on u visit. He brought with him an old negro woman, "a slave, for a nurse to his children. Intelligence of the fact was quickly dissemi nated among the brave and liberal spirits who sympathise with the "noor African" ? at a safe distance. On Monday Wm. M. Allen, Esq , who has been tho leading spirit of the abolitionists since Mr. Alvan Stewart went to estab lish the liberty party in New York, obtained a wi it of habeas corpus, returnable before Judge Root. Mr. Munn is visiting at tho house of Mr. Eli F. Benjamin, who has also with him on a visit his son, Or Samuel Benjamin, of North ( arolina. The writ was, through a mistake, is sued against this latter gentleman, who. happening to have left all his slaves at home, had no difficulty in clear ing himself from the process. We understand, however, ttiat he was so much struck with the courage and ad dress of the gentleman who had the prinoipal charge of the proceedings, that lie invited hiin to visit him in N. C. offering to pay his expenses and give him free access to his slaves, to take away as many as ho could persuade to leave, by his cloquenre and the confidence which his appearance inspired. Tho writ having been corrected', a mob of white, black ami mixed, of all ages and sexes, accompanied the officer to Mr. Benjamin's residence. ? Tne poor object of thoir sympathy wai so much terrified at the appearance and actions of these "angels of light," 'hat it was feared she would die of flight. She is some 57 years of ago and suffering under tho dropsy. Mr. Munii assured the zealous philanthropists that he was perfect ly willing they should take the woman if they would give security for her maintenance and sho would con sent, ami informod them that he had told her on first coming into a free State that she was at liberty to leave i. im whenever she pleased un giving a few day's notice. But the liberators were far too elevated iu their con ceptions to take pecuniary matters into consideration. ? ludgo Root, at the request of the Mayor, who had visi icd the scene of the disturbance, postponed the ictiirn of the writ till Tuesday morning at 8 o'clock. The old woman, in the meantime. was in continual terror left her loving friends should liherate her by foice. To allay her Tears and the apprehensions of the family, deputy sheriff Johnson passed the night at the house, anil a body of watchmen were stationed in its vicinity. The morning came, and at the appointed hour Mr. Munn was at Jud^o Root's oflice with the slave, and the sheriff with the writ, to which he returned that tho defendant did not detain the woman Judge Root explained to the woman that she* was at liberty to go where tho pleased. She, not withstanding the arguments and entreaties of her new fiicnds. insisted upon remaining with her master, and i* now abiding wi'.h him, though .till laboring tinder much apprehension lest she should be abducted and left to the tenlor mercies of tho bnsj -bodies who have given them selves so much unnecessary trouble on her account. ?
