Mr. Benton s Address- The following is Mr. Benton's appeal to the people of Missouri, against the frantic legislators of that State. It will be read with interest, and with a feeling of unmitigated contempt for the small demagogues and would-be traitors upon whom the great Missouriao plants the crashing foot, as1 the elephantof Oriental courts does when performing the part of an executioner. To the People of Missouri: The General Assembly of our State, at its late session adopted certain resolutions on the subject of slavery, and gave me instructions to obey them. From this command I appeal to the people of Missoa*i«»»«he whole body of the people—and if they conform the instruction " , fshall give them an opportunity to find a Senator to carry their will into effect, as I cannot do anything to dissolve this Union, or to array one half of it against the other. I do not admit a dissolution of ihe Union to be a remedy, lo be prescribed by statesmen, foi the diseases of the body p...

"Neutral in Politics." Dear readers 1 those of you who live at a distance when you come lo town, do not fail to enquire.for the noted scribbler J. D. He is the greatest curiosity lhat has ever escaped from the hands of a keeper, but he will not hurt anybody. — If y ou see a little foam streakTrom his lips, do not believe him mail; it is of no more account than the effervescence of a glass of soda. He walks the streets, we believe, tho same as any other person without a master; and his venom is more harmless than the sling of a honey bee. In his 7 by 9 battery of last . week, he left its traces on more than a half column, but how fortunate ! do you ihink anybody isdcadl No ! not even wounded by a spent ball. We indeed candidly admit that we descended from our pedestal of dignity, in noticing his luminous thunderbolt that appsared the week previous; nor would we condescend now, to say aught further on the subject, had we not already committed ourselves, so that we feel bound to ...

The Great Fire in St. Lonis. It appears thnt the fire broke out on board the steamer St. Cloud, which Was almost in* stonily communicated to the adjoining steamers: The burning boats Were cut from their moorings and floated down the levee set* ting fire to such boats as were unable to get out. A strong Wind prevailing, the boats al* most the entire length of the leven soon pre* sented 11 solid sheet of flame. By this lirrie nearly the whole city became aroused, and the utmost consternation prevailed.. The heat from the burning boats set the buildings fronting on the levee on fire, the flames communicfltinr/ at the lowest street, the very heart of the business portion of the city—and extending from Locust street fof three quarters of a mile down the leveei reaching back as far as Second street.

The Flood at New Orleans- The Cresent of the I lth has Ihe following in reference to the excitfng state of affairs in New Orleans: The water, night before last and yesterday, continued lo rise steadily in the back portion of the upper part of the Second Municipality. The rise during lhat time we should take, to be about twenty-two inches. The flood has now advanced as fat as Bacchus street, and threatens to extend further. The Dryades street market is completely surrounded. In order to protect the lower portion of the Municipality from inundation, a levee had been constructed along the New Canal. The people above were exasperattd at this, thinking it tended to raise the water in their part of the city. At one lime, night before last, it was thought there would be some disturbance, resulting from the excited feeling of the people ; watchmen were placed to guard the levee, but in spite of iheir precautions several openings were made, thus letting Ihe water Ihrough into the lower...

Our Pilgrimage to Cedar Creek. We rose from bed; wo ate our breakfast; we started on our journey ; with stall in hand we bent our steps westward ; we were bound for Cellar creek: we reached our destination ; we found that Cedar creek was still Cedar creek. Each sentence in our first paragraph we consider of such lasting importance, that we have used no more words than were absolutely necessary to express each of them. Yes, we found that Cedar creek was still Cedar creek, and lhat in our estimation expresses an infinity of meaning; for Cedar creek is unique; it is the pearl of creeks, Ilio jewel of jewels, the prima donna of beauties. We sat ourselves upon the old wealher-beaten stone which so often used to receive our profane mortal body, before old goaty, crabbed winter raised bis crutch at us and threatened to make us suffer, if we approached our favorite stream while he was stalking about. It was the first time we ventured after his frigid denunciation. According to our custom ...

Newspaper Credit System. The correspondent of the Baltimore Patriot, speaking of the National Intelligencer, says that the outstanding debts due to thnt establishment, are estimated at $100,000.— [Atlas. This shows the folly of the credit system in the newspapers business. The Nnlional Intelligencer is one of the oldest, as well as one of the best, newspapers in the country; and we believe that its list of subscribers is, in the score of respectability, wealth and mind, equal if not superior to that ofnny other newspaper establishment in the country. There is hardly a whig planter in the Southern slates but is a subscriber to the Intelligencer. There are hundreds of persons, men of wealth too, who have for years been receiving and rending thnt paper without contributing a cent to the support of its proprietors, two of the most generous hearted men in the printing business in the United States. We doubt not that there arc other subscription papers the proprietors of which can...

Gold Dollar. 1 lie newspapers state thai gold dollars have certainly been coined at the Philadelphia Mint, and have been put into circulation —an event upon which we congratulate our subscribers and the country, holding this measure to be a decided improvement in our circulating medium. We are no enemies to the banks— of such as are honestly and ably managed, nor of a judicious issue of bank paper; but for the judicious denominations of our currency, we vastly prefer the metals to the paper, for reasons as plenty as blackberries in blackberry season. new Postmasters.—Jacob F.

Anthony E. Roberts. The appointment of Mr. Roberts, as Marshal of ihe Kaslem District of Pennsylvania, reached us so shortly, says the Lancaster Republican, before Ihe issue of our Saturday's last paper, that we had neither time nor spice to make any comments upon it. which we consider a sufficient reason for recuring to it again to-day, and to perform that duty now, whieh, in justice to both President Taylor and Marshal Roberts, we should- have performed, bad circumstances permitted; a" week ago. Mr. Roberts is so well and favorably known throughout our county, as also in some of Ihe adjoining counties, that it is almost needless 10 say anything in commendation of either his character or qualifications to fill the station to which he has so deservedly been appointed. A more accommodating and obliging person, and a more active, prompt and industrious business man could not have been found. All, who have the pleasure of being acquainted with Mr. Roberts, feel confident, lhat he...

If any such are in ihese diggins lot them speak out immediately, if limy do not they may be loo late ; fur if the great rush continues, we might, perhaps, soon be' compelled lo close our books, and thereby exclude some of our most particular friends from our list , which wo 6hall be very sorry lo do. But this stale of things can be avoided by giving the matter your attention at once; so tumble up lo the 'captain's office,' without any further delay, and we will endeavor to find room for your names.

The Easton Argus, In answer to our remark of the 10th instant , says:—"We have neither the lime nor inclination to enter in a lengthy contest." We perfectly agree with our lriend Butter, but as to "the tariff and miscalled protection to American Industry," we disagree. Wo contend lhat a tariff, no mailer bow low it maybe U in some measure a protection lo "Ameriran Industry," n thing so apparently hateful in the eyes of Ibo Jrgus man. The high lariffdoctrine advocated by his wonhy Democratic Ancestors, may now have exploded, but what ivas then good doctrine , and found the approval of both political parlies, we are inclined opine, is still. What the editor says in reference to sending our paper to some subscribers for less than to others, is a wanton and cowardly falsehood, destitute of the remotest «hadow of truth, and we defy him or any other person to substantiate the same.

Mauoh Chunk Boatman. The difficulty existing between the Boatmen and the Company is not yet settled. Some three or four hundred boats remain tied up between Easton and Freemansburg. The strike of the boatmen as they allege, is, thai they cannot live at ihe prices now paid by the company, which they say, is live centsaton less than last year, and that Ihe coal this year is sold for twenty-five cents a ton more than last. On the contrary, it is contended that coal does not sell at a higer price than last year, and lhat the prices ' compared wilh those of last, are as follows: Along the line of the Lehigh the rate is the same, to Bristol two cents, and to Philadelphia three cents This state of things is to bo regretted, and we hope a compromise will be entered into. This would disperse the Boatmen and set them to work again.

Later from California. Fifty to one hundred dollars per day is nothing extraordinary for miners to make. There is, buwever, some danger from Indians and our countrymen, prowling about the country, committing murder and theft. Gold is very abundant, and goods extravagantly high, and an immense population coining forward, who all resort lo the mines, and return, merely to throw away the proceeds of their labor. In fact, I can hnrdly give you an idea of the slate of the. country-Those who have been here a year, with common industry and prudence are worth from twenty thousand to two hundred thousand dollars. Wages of servants $150 to S200 per month, and in the course of two or three Weeks, when it Will be seasonable weather to goto the mines, none will be had at any price.- You may judge what a state ol things exist when common laborers can go to the mines and return in a month or six weelcs wilh from one to three thousand dollars in gold.
