BURNING OF THE STEAMER WASH INGTON ON LAKE ERIE AND FIFTY LIVES LOST? By the Buffalo Advertiser of Saturday evening, we learn that the steamer North America had ju»t c ome in bringing the dreadful intelligence of tke destruction that morning about 3 o’clock, of tie new and elegant steamer Washington by tire off Silver Creek. The Washington had the bre part ofthe night passed the North America while the laiter lay at Erie, aud was not again seen bv the North America, till within three miles of Buffalo, when a glare of light being seen towards Silver Creek by the helmsman, the boat was itnmediateki put back, and at <5 A. M. nearer, the ihinting hulk of the \\ ashington, drifting bur miles from shore, with not a living soul on boird, and flic Waters around literally strewed vith hats, bonnets trunks, baggage,’ ami blackened fragments ofthe wreck. The tire had been dis covered at Silver Creek, but there were only three skid's there, which put out, and with these and the yawl of the Washing ton, about forty had been saved, many of them ladies. There were six dead bodies picked up by the Nor'h \inerica, four women and two chil dren. The hull and engine were towed into Sil ver Creek. The Washington was built at Ashtabula last winter. The fire caught near the boilers, and made rapid progress, and soon burnt otfthe 4steer iug ropes, which were not of iron, as they should have been, and thus the boat w as unmanageable aud could not be run on shore. One merechant on board lost 86000. Among those saved w e see u<, names of persons from this quater of the State. A woman was picked up with two children on her arm, a mile and a half from the wreck. The children w ere dead. TO THE CITIZENS OF WILMINGTON. W e the committee, on the part of a number of the passengers of the Pulaski brought to this place, tender to the citizens of Wilmington, our heartielf gratitude for tl e more than generous hos pitality with which we have been received.—lt is not m words that w e can express our feelings, but we pray to that God who has preserved us, to shower down his choicest blessings on the people w ho have received and nourished us. We think proper to correct some errors made in a previous statement relative to this accident.— The explosion took place at from 12 to 15 minutes past eleven on Thursday night, and in about 15 initiutes thereafter the boat separated, the forward part ofthe boat sunk about 10 feet when the hull left her, and her upper deck rose to the surface—lß men remaining on it. A great many having been killed or drowned hy the temporary sinking ot the forward deck. At about haif past twelve, the promenade deck fell off, leaving the stern of the boat uncovered, which, without sinking drifted oil with many people, on it, plainly visible to those on the forward deck. At this time (half past 12) the small boats left us, not remaining to pick up those in the water and place them on the wrecks. At half past twelve, Capt. Pearson came to the forward deck on a plank, having been thrown in the water by the explosion; when he reached us no boat vas in sight. On Saturday those on the for ward deck, picked up 5 persons on a small deck, and on 'J uesday at 10, A. M. those on the forward deck, were after suffering incredible hardships, picked, up by Capt. Eli Davis of the Schr. Ileurv Camerdon, of Philadclpliia, who not only aided us, but at the request of those on the forward deck, went in search of another wreck, and picked up six persons more. Os this gentleman, it is un necessary to say much or of Capt. Pearson--- our own feelings and their own speak sufficiently. Durit) / time the remains of the upper part of the forward deck, was floating, Capt. Pearson vVfts i-ifngune that if any boat reached the shore, we should have immediate relief, but unfortunately those arriving in the boat expressed themselves so confidently that the boat was sunk—that all was lost—that no inducement appeared, worthy of con sideration, to send boats to look for us. As soon however, as we arrived and a hope appeared of saving any cine, the most energetic measures were at once taken and we hope that more will be found and rescued. OSS!AN GREGORY, ) C. W.

Perhaps the question may be asked abroad, win coasting vessels and steamboats w ere not sent out immediately upon the news ofthe loss of the Pu laski, with the hope of rescuing others of the passengers and erew ? The answer is simple and satisfactory, and we feel that we, as the organ of the town of Wilmington, are morally bound to state I hat the Universal impression made here by the statement of the Ist mate, Mr. Hibberf, (who reached Wilmington 82 hours after the oc currence) was, that there was no hope that anv 1 others were, still striving. Indeed it was highly THE OEBRRIA MIRROR improbable that tempest tost and worn out beings could live ipon fragments of a wreck, through the violent gaj< of Sunday. I VUimnglon Advertiser, 22el that. Front the. Georgia Journal. WESLEY MANUEL LABOR SCHOOL. 1 lie committee who was appointed to prepare an address to the public, in reference to this insti tution, beg leave to offer the following statement of facts, which they hope will afford convincing evidence to the public, that this seminary of lear ning will soon be in successful operation. i his institution is located in Houston county, Georgia, near Fort Valley, in a healthy section of country, the growth ot which is Pine, intersper sed with Oak and Hickory, sod is of the most fer tile kind. Five hundred acres of land have been purchased, upon which the trustees design to commence operation. A portion of this land has been uni otl into lots, fourteen of which have been sold, f our houses for tiie Institution are nearly completed, convenient size, situated upon an area ol acies, and surrounded by a street one hundred and twenty feet wide. Preparations are still ma king to put up the requisite number of buildings, sufficient to accomodate a large number of pu pils, and to carry the school into speedy and suc cessful operation. I his institution was conceived less than twelve months ago, by a endowment of twen ty-five thousand dollars, given by Mr. James A. Everett, and fifteen thousand, raised by subscrip tion from the citizens of the county, making forty thousand dollars. Arrangements are now making to raise by subscription, fifteen thousand dollars, addition to what has been already subscribed, and which will, no doubt, be promptly responded to. riiis will enable the Trusteesto found an institu tion upon such basis, as will give to the poor an opportunity, at little expense, to obtain a liberal education. At a late meeting of the Board, a Superinten dantand Teacher were elected, of whose qualifi cations it is not necessary at this time to speak.-- I he school will go into operation on the first Mon day in January next. The number of pupils to be received will be limited at present, to sixty; thirty-two of whom will board at the Steward’s Hall, and twenty-eight in private families. The discretion of the school will be of such a rliavac ter, as will tend to promote, not only science, but morality and religion. The ruleV board is fixed at eight dollars per month, and tuition at twenty-five dollars per an num. No pupil will be received under twelve veais, of ago, each pupil will be required to labor a certain portion of each day, for which he shall be paid. At the close of thetirmor year, what ever may be due the pupil for labor, will be deduc ted from the charges made against him for board and tuition. J he committee, in conclusion, deem it almost unnecessary to say any thing in reference to the advantages to be derived from schools established upon the principle of connecting manual labor with mental culture. The age upon this sub ject is not involved in darkness. The experiment lias been made with success, not only m Europe and the Northern part of our own country, but in the South. In the State of Geoigia too, manual labor schools do flourish, and promise to be a blessing to the community. The committee confidently believe, the’ friends ot industry, science, morality, and religion, will give to the Wesley Manual Labor School, that support w hich its location, and promise of useful ness deserve. WM. ARNOLD, C. W. KEY, ELIJAH SINCLAIR, Committee. Fivm the j\ew York Gazette. The Methodist Conference now holding its annual session it this city has done an act that en titles it to the gratitude of the country, and one that might well he imitated hy all other ecclesias tical bodies. Some of the clergymen of that church have been innoculated with the abolition virtue, and joined to zealots of other sects in itin erating the country for tin: purpose of producing trouble and disquietude in the land, by agitating this hist and worst devise of Satan. The Confer ence has taken up the case with a spirit that does it honor, and disciplined some of them who have but partially engaged in the mischief. Others who have been more active and open in departing from the legitimate Christian duties assigned to them, to bleed ill-blood and disturbance in society, have been suspended. It is an example that should be to 'owed by every church in the United States— lhe Methodist church we venture to say from personal knowledge, is better acquainted with the state of the slave population in the Southern States than any other body of Christians, for its ministers have mixed more with that population, and done more for its melioration than those of any other denomination. They know very well what mountains of falsehood have been piled up by the abolitionists in relation to the condition of the Southern negroes. They know the utter falsi ty of the declaration in the mouth of every braw ling abolitionist in the land, that the slaves are de prived of the ordinances of religion. They know that every facility is afforded for re ligions instruction to those people, and how much religious men are encouraged by the mas ters, m their holv labors among the slaves. So do we know the same thing, and it is with a feeling little short of abhorrence, that we have seen and heard tne scandalous falsehoods uttered on this subject. Avery considerable portion of the Southern slaves are Christian communicants, and not onlv allowed but encouraged to attend the worship o’s the.rGod upon the Sabbath. Probably two-thirds of the number are indebted for their religious in struction to the Methodist, and dare sav that pro portion, who are religious at all, belong to that church. I hey belong to it because its ministers have been more indefatigable in dischargin'* their <• towards them. \\ r e are far from intendin'* by these remarks to speak disparinglv, even by implication, of other denominations, for we are aware how much they have all done in many in stances, but, it is a fact not to be controverted, that the Methodist have done more than all the rest losiether, in the discharge of this benevolent duty R is plain, therefore, that this denomination, know more, and can judge more correctly of the real situation of the .South, than any of tlieir Christian bieihren, and it is tins circumstance that ejves great value to the steps just taken by the hi Mi est nuthonty ot church. Its venerable Bishops, its ministers and its delegates, never did cn net in stricter accordance with their duty as good chris tians and good citizens. Fashion ■ The voluntary slavery which leads us to think, act and dress according to the judg ment of fools ami caprice of coxcombs. & Committee. UA’X, Ft am. the. Southern Recorder. The letters published in our last paper, show that all the efforts of Governor Gilmer were exert ed to procure the removal of the Cherokees prior to the expiririon of the treaty, iu the only tray which that important object could be accomplish ed, by urging John Ross to go home, and to be come the agent in their removal; which he. and lie alone, could effect before the period arrived when tiie treaty would be executed by the power of the country. That he could do so, was the o pinion of a number of the most respectable citi zens of the Cherokee country of both parties, whose correspondence with the Executive we have read, and whose opinions on this subject, of course were entitled to the highest confidence. The propriety, nay the imperious duty of the Chief Magistrate of the State, usin<* everv effort to put our citizens in possession of their property at as early a day as possible, is indisputable. Even the bitterest political opponent of the Governor, will hardly venture to say that he did not faithfully perform his duty in this respect; and the impor tance of the effort was greatly heightened by the consideration that on this early possession in a creat measure depended the crop of the year of the entire territory. But the Secretary of War and Mr. Senator Lumpkin, have the hardihood to say, that their proposition ° ranting two years longer to the Indi ans to remain in Georgia to liarrass our citizens, and entail the greatest injury on themselves, was hut carrying out the plainly expressed views ofthe G« Tcrnorof Georgia on this subject. Oh shame w here is thy blush! We would here, by the way, take occasion to expose the trickery exercised in this matter. It w ill be remembered, that Mr. Lumpkin in the Se nate, in substantiation of liis charge, read an ex tract from the letter of Governor Gilmer to the Secretary of War, which we published in our last. The charge to be established was, that Governor Gilmer recommended two years further procrasti nation in the removal ofthe Indians. Mr. Lump kin, with singular fairness, commenced his extract in the middle of a paragraph, actually beginning at a comma or semicolon ; so garbling matters as to give him every advantage to make it read as he pleased ; very much in the same way that the garb lev can prove from the Bible, the creed of the A thiest, by extracting the words, "there is no God” —but which, when joined to what went before them, entirely changes the case, by making it read “The fool hath said in his heart, there is no God.” Let us peruse the whole paragraph referred to, pla cing in parenthesis, the part omitted by Lumpkin, in his garbled reading: (''.Sow that Ross and the Chcerelece Delegation must have lostall hope oj pi eventing the. execution of the treaty , is it not possible to induce them to re turn home, convince their people that their inter est aud safety require them to join their friends in the \V est, and themselves undertake to effect their voluntary removal in their own way?) The best informed persons residing among the Cherokees, express the opinion, that Ross can, if he will, re move liis people al once. To avoid the great ex pense to the Government, and preserve the lives and property of our citizens and the Indians, which may be sacrificed if the treaty is executed by force, the Government can well afford to pay a very lib eral price for the voluntary and immkdiete remov al of the Indians. To enable Ross and the chiefs to effect this object Arc. Does this look like procrastination? Docs the expression of the Governor, which Mr. Lumpkin did not read, “Now that Ross and the Cherokee Delegation must have lost all hope of preventin'* the execution of the treaty”—does this look like delaying its execution for two years? Does the Governor's expression in continuation, “To ena ble Ross and the Chiefs to effect this object?”— what object?—“the voluntary and immediate re moval of the Indians,” says Governor Gilmer—do these words bear out Mr. Lumpkin’s interpreta tion of Governor Gilmer’s “plainly expressed views,” for a two year’s delay ? Shame, shame upon such unblushing effrontery—such reckless abuse of the truth. Let it be remembered, that upon the letter which we have just quoted, and that to John Ross, urging him to remove his peo ple between the first of March, when it was w rit ten, and the period when the treaty expired, we say let it be remembered, that upon these two’let ters alone, from which, by no force of construc tion can even the least hint of a proposed delay be wrested, on these two letters alone are founded the whole charge of Mr. Lumpkin and Secretary Poinsett, that the two years’ delay is the move of the Governor of Georgia— all subsequent corres pondence in connexion with the subject, being Confined to the suggestion of proper preparations for the execution of the treaty, when the period of its expiration arrived. \\ e will now give a summary quietus to the pre tence ol the honorable Secretary of War, upon his own showing; and we think before we are done with this gentleman, he will consider it a serious misfortune that there are such things as pen and ink—and more unfortunate still, that he Ins ever learnt to use them. The pretence of the honora ble Secretary is, that the proposition for delay, of fered and assured by him to the Indians, was done in deference to the views of the Governor of Geor gia. Now, Governor Gilmer's letter to the Secre tary, upon which he alone attempts to base this pretence, that which we have laid before our roa ders, and to which the honorable Secretary never even deigned an answer, we beg the reader to re member, is dated about the Ist of March. But a month and a half after this time, we find the honor able Secretary assuring the chiefs at Washington, that there could be no modification of the treaty’ hut that it should be decidedly carried into effect’ This assurance is made to the Cherokee delega tion on the 17th of April—a month and a halfoif ter the date of Governor Gilmer’s letter to him upon which he pretends to found the reason of his proposed modification of the treaty. It is evi dent therefore that at this time the Administration were decided in their determination to execute the treaty at all events. It is likewise as evident, that the after-thought ofthe two year's modification and delay, must have been brought about bv other influences than Governor Gilmer’s letter'of the Ist ot Mty ch. \\ e give an extract from the Sec retary’s letter to the Cherokee delegation, to which we allude, and which is dated the 17th of April one month and a half after Governor Gilmer’s let ter so often alluded to: “The Department does not see the practicabili ty of being more clear and explicit than it was in the last lettedaddressed to the Cherokee dele<*a t.on It meant to convey the impression of the decided determination of the President to execute he laws of the land, and to carry into effect the treaty with the Cherokees; and a hope was in (.ulged that the delegation, seeing that the Presi dent had no alternative, would zealously rate in preserving the peace of the country. Ti officer who has been sent to carry into effect ti treaty stipulations with the Cherokee nation u do all in liis pow er to accomplish that object u'ea * ably.” . J Evate llere the pretence of tiie Secretary of War • regard to Governor Gilmer’s iuilucnce upon him is fairly put hors du combat. No such l. tiuenr' was felt by the Secretary in all bis move : the af ter thought ofdelay for two years, must Lave been adopted through other and after influences; and those influences are too obvious to be mistaken u misconceived even by the most stupid. The short and the long of the whole matter is, that Mr. V an Buren was frightened from his position by tj ie flood of petitions in favor of the Cherokees, which inundated the halls of Congress, lie feared he' had already too little popularity to spare, to haz ard the little left by opposing the popular tide which so strongly set in from the North in favor’ as they called it, of t'uc poor Cherokees. This is the key to the whole affair. The Administration hoped to conciliate ti.e North, and perhaps turn the popular tide in their favor, by their procrasti noting show of humanity to the poor Chorokees and at the same time to take off the odium of the trick in Georgia, by saddling it on the shoulders of the Chief Magistiate ofthe State; thus killing two birds with one stone—conciliating the North on the one hand, and putting down an opposition Governor at »he South on the other. And f or these praiseworthy ends Mr. Senator Lumpkin has played into the hands of his well-beloved \d ministration, or lias been made its dupe and its tool. I he scheme has signally failed; the Governor of Georgia indignantly denies alt pwrtiemati**, ,- x „ pressly or impliedly, in the procrastinatim* policy and denounces the whole affair. Mr. SetiatoJ Lumpkin acknowledges himself the adviser of the Administration in regard to the measure, and he is charged specifically with making propositions personally to John Ross, delaying the period o! their removal beyond the limit of the treaty; and it behooves him, at his earliest convenience, to ex plain, if lie can, his conduct to his State and to her people. As to Mr. V r an Buren and liis admi rable Administration, they are sunk already too low in Georgia to sink any lower, if they were to try; aud it would be even more hopeless for them to attempt to rise. From the following despatches it will be seen with unmiugled gratification, by every Georgian, that our Indian difficulties have been brought* to a happy conclusion, and that most of the Georgia troops are about to be honorably discharged from service, having performed the duty for w hich they weie organized—giving possession of the country to our citizens. We have only space to renew our hearty congratulations to the citizens ofthe State, that our Indian troubles are at last closed, we may hope forever.— ib. 1 Head Quarters, Middle Military District, ( New F.chota, 18th Juno, 1838.
