COLUMBUS mgs, WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBi- R 1. Our Daily. We discontinue, to day, our Tri-Weekly, and commence tho issuing of a daily paper. Ths step, ihe .u'j-jct of deliberation, perhaps ot resolve under the pr. ceding admini-tration, wasdefniitely determined upon who i the paper passed into the hands of its present proprietors. The change has fen induced by a due regard to our own iri te o-ts, the requirements ot tho times and the sug g. stions of friendly counsel. With a serri-daily nn i front the great cen res of trade and commeice i: was rarely our privilege, under the tri-weekly system, to turi.Lli our readers witn news . With the same means of inf< r naiiun, and others in ad din >n, which a daily issue warrants, our active and viglint cotemporary of the Su/t generally antic paler) u-tin information respecting the con dt i .n of the markets and other matters of general intelligence. We net and haid y to ar'd that the imi ulse given to iuq iy on those sul jects, by the recent anu greatest triumph of science aggravates the nee >s ity of the course we have adopted. We shall eudeavor to make the Times more accep table io the merchant and general reader—in a w otd, more of a neio.sp.iper, than it has ever been. Having already ihj benefit of a large list of ex changes, we thill cheerfully submit to whatever e*pen?B may be necessary to iurr.i h its readers will the latest telegraphic intelligence. Whilst this is onr promise, w e will s‘rive to make it to the i nerest of the merchant and the public who may win’an advertising medium, to supply u^withthe mtans of performance. Our circula im, now large in the scope of country which trades in ihi ci y, we are making strenuous efforts to increaie. Tne result already reached has < ustrippeJ cm mo.-t sanguine caicula ions, and azures usofu'ti mate success. To the subscribers and patrons of rur Tri W.ekly, we led sincerely thankful for the r support, and we hope, by increased effort, to ne i a still larger measure ot favor* The Daily will be sent to all who are on the Tii Week y subscription list, and the fir-t issue to mauy who are not aid never weresu! scribers tothe limes 65 Sentinel, ii the hope hit su h of cur fiiends wi 1 respond to the suggestion thus conveyed. For the sake of convenierci and better appeararce, we have a??umed to change cur name which was adopiel upon the union of the “Times” and “Sen'iael,” and will be known hereafter, by the title of our illustrious sire, the “Columbus Times.’’ The Weekly will be foujd on Tuesday as here tofore ; the Daily will be distributed early every morning. News every day from Europe. The new.-papersare now fl.led with daily com munications from Europe To enquire of the health of the Q ;een to-day or who has the floor in the British Parliament, wiil be questions which the newß-carriers can answer with perfect certain ty. ind td the effect of thus annihilating time and ovi rooming distance between Europe and America will have a tendency to draw together, as with “hooks of steel,” the bond of friendship and union between these great nations of the earth. 1 he old declaration ol 1776 is almost forgotten in the joyousness of the present and we feel like one people—a people living under the laws rf * U '- U , ut; and speaking the Janguage..f <f in R S - m ?* r *Tjired Milton. The ? well ws>i', rihakespeare aud rm- J >^.P rot i l ?u , iiYean kisses the countrie and Statesmen ar and the crowned heads of Europe converse, as ’he Philosophers ol Rome in the same forum, it is an august conception ! Be.-ide? the additional interest it will give to com merce—besides the glory wi i h attends so bril liant an achievement as the success of the Atlantic cable—the friendly and daily interchange of thought and sentiment will link together in the clw i 1 of brotherly love, England and America.— Tne memories ot *75 are forgotten—the voices ot Chatham and Buike, vind eating our cause, are hushed -the right ot search is abandoned and En g and and America strike hands on their march t > the fulfilment ol their own separate destiny.— So mote it be! Captured Africans,—-300 at Castle linckney. It will be seen fnm the telegraphic dispatches, that the hr g “Echo” was captured off the Coast < f Cuba, bv the U. S. man of-war, Dolphin, and is now at Charleston harbor. The Africans have been transferred from the Echo to Castle Pinck ney, where a command of U red Sta'es troop? are p'aced over them. 1h y wore taken from the Gtiiea Cost, and number thee hundred—two hundred and sixty males, and forty females, {fix teen seamen we e captured and are lodged in jail in Chitleston. liis said, they will eariy the Cap tain, tor trial to Boston—a pretty place by the way, where it cost the U.ii.ed Sta'es $53,000 to the fugi ive slave law, and remand the slave Burns to his owner in Virginia. ‘I ha crew were Half Americans and hilf Span iarda. The negroes are rep refuted as preferring to live io the United States than return to Africa— th it the/ will lie taken agiin—placid in the bar ra 100ns and sent ag. i.i to Cuba. We presums the officers of the brig Echo will he tried fora viola im of the laws of ih 3 United Stale?. Be i wi ie it to b? himaoiy to bring :hs negroes from Africa—believ ng that history proves that the Atiiean, when left to his owi resource s , will not advance ia c vi'ization—that h ; s fatu'ii-*s are imi tat ve, not it.ve itive, and *e will advance only when hr night ii contact wi;h or h >!d in subjection to a superior race, we would prefer having the cap u ed Africans remain in the Uu ei f tate.-, ihin return* dto Air ca. At ihe sami time we are oppo e i to ihi re-opening of the slave tiade, as a ques inn of politics. Illinois Crops—Politics &c. Frcm a private leiter recently iectived from Illinois, we are permitted to make a few extracts concerning polities and the crops. Speaking of Judge Douglas, the writer says, “he is canvassing the State for re-election to the Senate, and mod estly entertains the opinion that his qualifications are ol the highest order, and his claims second to none. His defeat would be hailed with great joy, and I would be p'eased to see him rewarded for his pa it treachery, but, as a Inst alternative, would vote for him in pref-rencs to Lincoln. We feel that the Lecomptoo Constitution reflected the voice of the voting people of Kansas—that all the f rms of law— ab ov > usque ad malum —iro n be ginning to end-had been complied with prior to the presentation ot the Leeompton Constitution to Cos gress and that Mr. Douglas was too hasty in opposing its acceptance and attacking the Presi dent's Message. Still, if the Administration men do not run a ihird candidate—Mr. Breese or Fitch— they wid support Mr. Douglas rather than elect the Black Republican ticket. They hope by this very eonci iatory c< urse, to smooth the last rip piings of the hitherto ruffled waves of party har mony. There are good, true, and staunch demo* j crats however, who have lost confidence in Judge Douglas’ fide’ity to his party, and who will not vote for him under any circumstances. The Le gislature will probably have a Republican majori ty, and Judge Douglas will be defeated. Farmers are busy thrashing out their Wheat. Various estimates are made as to the probable 1 yield. In some sections, we have glowing ac counts, but in this part of the State (Southern,) we will not make more than half a crop. The aver age crop will be about fifteen bu-hels to the acre. ‘I he rust has destroyed the wheat in some places. The Corn crop is very fine, considering the back wardness of the season. Not a grain was put in the earth before the Ist of June. It is now in tas st 1 and looks well and flourishing. Even-that planted as late as the Ist h of July looks healthy, and will make corn without bad luck. We have a few fields with roasting ears. The Oat crop is well near an entire failure. The The rust, seldom known to attack the oats, has destroyed the prospect of a crop. Few fields will be harvested. The Spring Wheat too,is a failure. The wet weather and rust ruined it. Fortunately there was not a heavy crop plantod. Hay promis es an unprecedentedly large yield. Irish potatoes in abundance and apples in large quantities- Soma of the farmers plant Hungarian Grass. It maiures early and resembles Millet. They think it wiil be valuable.” Fungi the Prouucerof Yet.i.ow Pever—A writer in a New Orleans paper says there can be no doubi that the poison producing yellow fever is fungi diffused through the atmo pbeie, just as the odorifeious panicles of arose or other frag rant flowers are diffused through it, and are known by their saluting our olfactoiiee on approaching them early in the morning. These of the night, irt this ease, have exerted a solvent power over the flower, the atmosphere for some distance around being filled with them in fev r time. But neither chemical analysis nor the microscope ia able fo detect such an agreeable impression on the senses ; neither have they been able to detect the subtle poison that produces yellow fever. Whatever, then, may be the cause producing the lever, one thing is believed to be certain, viz: that it is diffused through the atmosphere, and that whoever breathes a sufficient quantity of that at mosphere to imbibe a certain amount ol the poison, will have the disease. Periodicals. Leonard Scott & Co.’s, republieation of Black wood’s Edinburg Magazine for August, and the London Quarterly Review for July, are on our table. These periodicals haye a deservedly widß circulation within the intelligent circles of both continents. Their reputation isco-extentive with the means of inter communication and the taste for polite literature, and the numbers before us are filled with ingenious criticisms and other re sult of great intellectual effort, well calculated to sustain that high reputation. Commander of Grazil Squadron, Washington, Aug- 29. - Commodore Shub rick has been appointed to relieve Commodore Forrest as commander of the Bravi! squadron. Yet Sow Fever in Charleston, A&?.,?,9.—Thi-*) ‘ ,f P ye r ’ de yr“/ 1 deaths by yellow v n. in this city, last week, including Saturday, were thirty-nine. Tlie Cargo of Afx’ieaus Charleston, Aug, 29.—The cargo of 300 Afri can negroes from the slave brig Echo, were re* ceived this morning on hoard the steamer Gen.

Major General— Mr Samuel Hardaway is elected Maior General of the Montgomery Dis trict, Alabama Militia. Opinions of the Press. From the opinions expressed by the Press thiougliotr the country, far and wide, it seems that the character of our friends, Samuel Swan & Cos., and the reiialiliiv of their Lottery institution, is ty no means problematical. Facts are smbborn things, and it is impossible to get over the mass of evidence m their favor, touching the whole bu6i ness management of their concern. It their ene mies cou and single out ihe first questionable act it would eratify them, no doibt, but they cannot do it. The Mes-rs. Swan & Cos. know their position, deal hoooratdy. pay promptly, and have gained a teputation which places them altogether beyond the reach of the most vindictive loe. La Grange Female College.—Declen sion of Rev. J. M. Bonnell. —We regret to learn that the Rev. J. M Bonnell has de clined to accept the Presidency of the La Grange Female College. We do not know his reasons for declining. The College course will commence on the 24th proximo; and we suppose suitable and satisfactory arrangements will be made by that time for the complete organization ol the Faculty. —La Grange Reporter. Among the visitors at the Old Sweet Springs in Virginia are Justice Campbell, of the Supreme Court; Judge Hopkins, ol Ala.; ex-Goverimr Henry Stuart Foote; Judge Withers,of South Caralina ;ex Gov ernor 8011, of Texas ; Professor Holcombe, of the Uni vet sty of Virginia; Hon. Win. C. Preston, and Judge Grattan, of Vir ginia. To the Editor of the Rome Courier 6j Statesman : “Where ignorance is bliss ’tis folly to be wise.” The editorial article in your paper of the 25th August, was written by seme person, who was unfortunately unacquainted with the law and de cisions of the Supreme Court —or more unfortu nately not disposed to state them correctly. it has been long the well settled law ot Eng land and the United States and Georgia, that up on the dissolution of the corporation, all the debts due to and from it, are extinguished. See Judge Lumpkin in Moultrie vs. irmilie et a!. If this will not satisfy you, permit me to refer you to the piece signed “Fiat Justitia,” published in the Times fij Sentinel of Columbus of t 24th August, 1858, and beg you to look at the authori ties therein cited. You have been almost as unfortunate in your notice of the decisions of the Supreme Court. It has been four times decided by that Court, nor is the decision at the last Term ol the Supreme Court, the first one in which such decisiou was made. It has not been in all the cases recognized by the Supreme Court, that at Common Law, tho debts due to aDd from the corporation, are extinguished by the dissolution of the charter, and this ia not confined to Bank charters ; but to all private cor porations ; Judges Warner, Nesbit, Lumpkin, and Starns’s, holding that this principle does not ex tend to the stockholders. This was held iu Lane vs. Morris, 8 Ga. Rep’s. 4f,8 The samd was held in Thornton vs. Lane, 8 Ga. Rep’s, when after elaborate arguments of morß than eight days continuance which closed on | Saturday night the Judges (Nesbit having left the j Court on Sunday morning) delivered their opinion on Monday mornirg If the argument was long and elaborate, the consultation of the Court is cer tainly free from that charge. In Moultrie vs. Stnilie et al., Judge Lumpkin and Starnes, no doubt, with the same mature de liberation o:i the principle of “ stare decisis’’ did decide (Benniog dissenting,) that the directors were liable. Here your decisions end. In Robison vs. Lane, 19 Ga- P p’s, the Court did not decide that up<>e a dissolution f the char ter, the stockholders were liable. Judge Lump kin did, Judge McDonald admired the old common law principle, (indeed no Judge has denied it,) but decides that the judgment of forfeiture was not complete because no execution had been sued out on the judgment of forfeiture, and on that ground decided against Robisou (the stockholder.) In Moultrie vs. Hoge, 21 Ga. Reps. 513, Judges McDonald and Benning,(Judge Lumpkin dissent ing) decided that upon the expiration of the char ter of the Commercial Bank of Macon, the debts due to and Lorn it were extinguished;, and that the directors were no longer liable. This case was decided at January Term, 1857, of the Supreme Court at Macon, one year, and eight months before the decision was made by the same Judges at Macon in 1858. Why was no censure or clamor raised about this decision ? Because it was not in one of Col. Dougherty’s cases. But for him and lis associates, j who have purchased the bills at an immense dis count (indeed for little or nothing) Heaven and.. r* -d, . • -. la . | - I'nw* ijZfra?uiuaf TJe tuovcii, tne Judges censured and held up to public reproach and the Court itself abolished—and for what? To aid reckless spe culators upon the misfortunes of ihe unfortunate stockholders and help Col. Dougherty to make a fortune by the violation ol the laws and the commission of an offence that subjects him to pro secution and fine and imprisonment at the discre tion of the Court* For Judge Benning, he and his friends have no fear. Truth ia mighty and will prevail. The people of Georgia are honest and generous, and when they know the truth* will protect an upright man and an honest and fearless officer. C. The Captured Africans. The Key of the Gulf\ (Key West .) pub lishing an extra, giving an account of this capture, says: The prize had on her stern “Echo,” and painted out was “Putnam of New Orleans” The crew consisted of twenty men—half Ameiican and half Spanish. No one would acknowledge the command ; the supposed and probable captain—who is evidently an American —upon the question being ask ed, “Who is captain ?*’ replied, with the utmost coolness and dignity, “All are cap* taius.” The vessel’s papers, colors, and : everything calculated to identify her, or i those connected with her, were destroyed immediately upon the conviction that es cape was impossible. Cap. Maffitt put Lieutenants J. M. Brad ford and C. C. Carpentei, with twen y men on board, confined the brig’s crew in double irons—except the supposed captain, who, was taken on board the Dolphin, where he now is in double irons—and ordered the vessel to Charleston for adjudication, for which port all sail was then nmde, and the two vessels parted company. Two sick passengers— against whom there was no proof of complicity—were ta ken on board the Dolphin and put ashore at this place. This is the first slaver captured by an American man-of-war, and the prize with slaves sent to a United States port ; and it cannot fail to create com-iderable excite ment at Washington, aud indeed through out the country. The prize had on board when taken, about tfree hundred and thirty Africans, mostly young—none of whom were over thirty-five years of age; and there was evi dently several births on the voyage. More than seven-eighths of the slaves, male and female, were iu a nude state. They were confined to the deck in a fitting posture— “spoon fashion.” Originally, there were 470 taken on board, ot which number 140 had died. Among the incidents of the capture, we learn, that the night before that event, the; vessel being within about eighty miles of j the port of destination , a grand champagne “blow out” was had on board in anticipa tion of soon successlul'y completing the voyage and fingering the proceeds—of which we are informed each of the crew were to receive §9OO, and the owners ex pected to clear §130.000; but before they had had lime to sleep off the effects of their j potations, the* Dolphin hove in sight at daylight, much to their surprise aud cha grin. Also, during the chase, when it was thought by the slavers that their vessel was distancing the Dolphin, thev again indulg ed in champagne, drinking confusion to the pursuers, leaning over the rail and howling and tossing off a bumper in the most approved and “don’t-you-wish-you •ould-catch-us” style. But when the last shot was fired, going betw-een her masts, heir self-assurance and hopes of escape turned to fear aod excitement, and after the capture, they expressed great astonish ment as to the accutacy of the shot, and asked “what kind of a gun sent a ball that distance.” . A Slaver in our Port. A slave brig, called the Echo, arr ved ! at this por. yesterday afternoon, in charge jof Lieut. Bradford, L T . S. N. Lieut. Brad ford is a citizen of Alabama, and Ist. Lieu tenant on board the U. S. brig Dolphin, Lieutenant J. N. Maffitt commanding.— Lieut. Maffitt, very kindly writes us, that the Dolphin captured this vessel, which he terms an American slaver, after a long chase, on the evening of the 21st inst., off the North Coast of Cuba, lat. 23“ 30, long 80° 20 ; . When first discovered the slaver was sailing under Enhlish colors, but per ceiving the Dolphin, whom he took to be an English vessel-of-war, he hoisted Ameri can colors. When he discovered his egre gious and fatal error, he made the most strenuous efforts to escape ; but a tew well directed shots from the Dolphin, brought him to reason, and he surrendered at dis cretion. The slaver, still deeming the Dolphin an Englishman, did not anticipate a search or visitation while he displayed American colors. Lieut. Maffit writes thet their cruise has been anything but pleasant, as they find the yellow fever prevailing wherever duty calls. Tne following is a list of the officers of the U. St lit s brig Dolphin : J. N. Maffit, Lieutenant Commanding. J. M. Bradford, Ist Lieutenant. E. P. Williams, 2d Lieutenant. C. C. Carpenter, 3d Lieutenant. J. M. B'xwne, Passed Assistant Surgeon. A. F. Crosman, Acting Master. From Lieut: Bradford we learn that the Echo had 318 Africans on boarl when cap tured—twelve have since died, and the ba lance are suffering somewhat from dysen tery. Suspicions were ti:st excited by the Echo’s suddenly hauling off from the coast, and upon the firing of blank cartridges, hoisting the American flag. The Dolphin then gave chase, and proving herself the better saiier brought the Echo to. Lieut. Bradford, with a force of sixteen men, boaided the Echo, and found her in the hands of a crew of nineteen men, Ameri cans, English and Spaniards, neither of whom would acknowledge themselves in command. A portion of this crew were transhipped to tiie Dolphin, who took them to Key West, whence they will be sent to this port by steamer. Lieut. Bradford, with Lieut. Carpenter, six marines and ten seamen, constitute the prize crew in charge of the Echo, and are now at quarantine in our harbor. The cargo, generally speaking furnishes good specimens of negroes. Our thank? are tendered to Lieut. Maffit and Lieut. Bradford for their kind courte sies. So far as Lieut. Maffit is concerned, who has heretofore brilliamly identified himself with this port, his, friends \yi l deem this ex al gea ag entirely re tuting the °y/miou which the Naval Board AVJnV.Ju' 1 of him, that as an officer of the Coast Survey he was unfit for duty at sea. The event has caused as much excite ment in our community as the success ot the Cable, and speculation, as to the result of the capture, the fate of the cargo, and the general bearing ot the affair, is great. Much curiosity is also excited, and many are anxious for an opportunity to observe the African in his native state. It is fortu nate for'the comfort of the officers in charge that, the rigidity of the quarantine laws will spare them much importunity and annoy ance.— Chariest on Mercury. Beviere on the Carpet Again. , A lecent letter of the illu.-irious ‘Zouave, Ri viere, to the New York Express, denying that he wore armour in his duel with Capt. | Maury, of Mobile, is the most superb piece of insolence that we have ever read. In ter alia , he speaks of his disciination to re fer to matters with which are connected “the ladies of my [his] future lamdy.”— Cool, isn’t it? And then he denies that Maury is entitled to be called “Captain!” Think of that! A thieving adventurer, cashiered in his own country, raising a question about the position of a citizen of a place which the said adventurer dare not visit. We can imagine how Maury itches to get hold of him, with a stout cowhide in his hand. But the chevalier will never give him the opportunity to score him— Mobile has seen the last of the gallant Zouave in his top-boots, red cap and monk ey coat. He is lost to our “commercial emporium” forever. En passant , when Riviere was in Sav annah, it was expected that he would pur sue Mr. Blount through Columbus and Mon’gomery to Mobile; at least people that did not know the vaporing scamp, thought he might do so. S—as we have heard—the young men of Columbus got ieady for the bullet-proof scamp, by plac ing a keg oftar and a bag of feathers, at the Muscogee Rail Road Depot: but alas! the bavaimah train brought no Rtxiere/ The Captain prefer: ed to return to the “Napoleon Hotel.” lie had better remain there, for if he ever defiles the soil of Columbus, Mont gomery or Mobile, he will be lynched as certainly as he is a low impostor and thief It wiil be well for him to remain away— even should he escape lynching<>n such a visit, Maury would flay him with a whip and probably takeoff both his ears. But— we are assured that when Capt. Maury fights him with the cowskin, he intends to be perfectly assured that all is right under his shirt. — Molgomery Mail . Personal Intelligence.
