It is Well known to fho plihlic, that lliia amia- I
Wo and accomplished young lady, whoso recent |
successful debut at the National created an ex- ,
traordinary sensation among the theatre going
people, has, for anmo days past, liecn residing at
the house of Mr. Thomas S. Hamblin, by thn
advice, and under the direction of her chosen and
legally appointed guardian, John M. Bloodgood,
The circumstances which led to the adoption
of this young. lieautiful, and talented creature by
Mr. Bloodgood, are as extraordinary as they are
painful. Hho, poor girl—innocent and virtuous
an she has always been—wav, unfortunately, the
offspring of a vile and polluted woman.
A sister of the lieautiful Josephine Clifton,
whose fame as an actress is universal, she, when
yet a child, tmbided a strong passion for the stage;
and well fitted by education and genius for asau
ming the histronic profession, she became the pu
pil of Mr. Hamblin, undri whoso tuition her aia
ter Ixjcamo so proficient and successful an artist.
Her studies being finished, she, though but lit
tle over sixteen years of age, made a first and
most successful appearance on (hostage as Alice,
in the now drama of Ernest Maltrsyers, written
by Louisa Medina, now the wife of Mr. Ham
blin. The popularity and prospect of gain,
which her extraordinary auccess occasioned, mo
ved the mercenary disposition of her debased re
latives, and at once excited a desire to roh Hr.
Hamblin of llio benefits which he legitimately
■expected to derive from the early career of his
fortunate and fascinating pupil.
Unable, either by throats 01 persuasions, lo in
duce the "young candidate’’ to act dishonorably
'with her tutor, and deprive him as the advantages
which, agreeably to a treaty made with her, her
’mother, m conjunction with her paramours and
friends, sought every opportunity to htrrase and
annoy the poor girl, and at length rendered her
■toy at home intolerable, and the selection of
another abode imperatively necessary.
At first, she made choice of a respectable boar
ding house in Houston street; hut here she was
so haunted by her cruel and inhuman persecu -
tors, (hat her then chosen guardian, Mr. Blood
good, consigned her to the carool Mr. Hamblin
und his lady, where, until her dissolution yester
day, she remained, having every attention that
could possibly oonduco to her comfort and render
her happy under the circumstances which sur
But, unfortunately, the meddlers and busy-ho
‘dies in her mother’s family, obtained the vilo get,
vices of some vagabond scribblers to harass her
mind, and disseminate, among kindred spirit!,
stories well calculated to excite n mind naturally

filthy outpourings of a still more filthy tind vil

Subjoined, i- ft detail of the proceedings before
the coronet s inquest, which was convened at the
urgent solicitation of Mr. Hamblin, against whom
a great excitement existed, in consequence ol the
fabulous reports which had been circulated us to
the cause ol the unhappy girl’s death. The pro
ceedings in the investigation will show that every
aspersion which has been uttered against either
Mr. Illoedgood or Alt. Hamblin, in connection
with this unfortunate business is utterly without

was made known, her brother, Nelson H. Miller,

premature dissolution is without doubt mainly
attributable, entered Hamblin's house, und in the
presence ol several gentlemen who were there,
threatened that he should die within twenty four
hours, 110 left the house, and shortly alter re- I t

from him by the officers in attendance, and ho ‘

he now remains, s
In compliance with the request of Mr. Ham- c
Min. tho coroner, Ira 11. Wheeler, Esq., summon- h
ed a jury, and made u must full, thorough, and |
searching investigation of the causes of the death I,
«f this young lady. t
The (allowing facts came out in evidence:— t
*Mis» Missouri’s astonishing success alarmed her ,
sister, Josephine Chiton, and she wrote to re. |
quest that Miss M. might be taken from the stage |
for a short lime, orjfor ever. The) wretched old ,
mother determined to do this; Miss Missouri re
monstrated, and the mother (as sworn lo in the
evidence) said she would make Miss Missouri 1
undergo “the tortures of the dimmed,” if she re
fused to comply. I
From this tunc, according to Miss Missouri's i
statements before death to witiiiessoa under a '
solemn oatU, the treatment of llio depraved .
und desperate old woman toward her was ot a
•nest violent character. She threatened lo
'Tallin her up in u convent or to send her some
•where into seclusion. Slin locked up all her
clothes —forbade her real friends to see her;
placed nothing but negroes from Iter own bro
thel around her; and, in short virtually sub
jected her to a temporary conlinouianl m
house No. 31 Harrison st.
Miss Missouri’s servant, thou by her own di
rection went lo one of the editors of tho city, and
‘fold her story, with a view to have her case
brought before the public. That gentleman pro
perly and promptly laid tho matter before the re
corder, Robert. L. Morris, Esq. He immediate
ly issued a writ of habeas corpus, and sent u letter
lo justice liloodgood, directing him to take the
necessary steps to bring Miss Missouri before him
Justice liloodgood promptly complied with
’this, and saw Alias Missouti that Might. Next
morning the young lady went voluntarily before
the Recorder, at his ollice in the City Hall, and
begged (hat his honor would choose a legal guar
dian for her.
Mr. Charles O’Conner was requested to act as
her legal adviser, which ho did. Mr. Bloodgood
was sent for at her request, he came, and after
much solicitations, be consented lo become bar
guardian. The letters of guardianship Were le
gally drawn out, and signed before the surrogate.
Mr. Bloodgood then placed her at the lai‘s«
and respectable boarding house of Mr. Warner,
corner of Croaby and Houston streets. Hithef
her mother and a haft-negro, and two or three nth*
•er wretches, pursued the loVely but unfortunate
young lady, and threatened violence. They said
she should die by their hands rather thin act
Mr. Warner, alarmed for tho quiet of his heuse
told Miss Missouri when she came home that she
must leave the house, or that she conld nut re
main there. Driven to despair Miss Missouri,
who was very nervous and seiuuttive, rushed out
of the hoaae and soon reached Mr. Hamblin’s res
idence, ho having been her tutor, and Mrs Ham
blin having been extremely kind to her.
She was soon after taken very HI, and contin

her with a virulence that was truly appalling.—
They eoucocted a virulent and venomous article 1

articli' wav’kept from her tight lor a long lime ; at
last vhe mw it, and before the had read it half

She never recovered from that hour. Accord

The jury, during the examination couid scarce
ly restrain their indignation at the brutal conduct
of Mrs. Miller and her myrmidons; and after de
liberating a few minutes gave as their unanimous
verdict the following, vtr.:
“That the deceased, Miss Missouri,'came to her
death by inflamation of the brain caused by great
mental excitement, induced jointly by the violent
conduct of her mother and the publication of an

which produces gum clastic oT caoutchouc.—
Tho same writer states that in thO vicinity of

has been discovered of such excellence' and
abundance of water that it is thought sufficient
to supply the whole republic. Mineral coa).

Irom the same prairie; and iron ore, the most
valuable of all minerals, is abundant near the

“Is he rich I" —Many a bi»h is heaved,

parents often manifest in choosing a life com

two principles eo diametrica'ly opposed to
eacli other in every point as virtue is to vice !
And yet how often is wealth considered abet

Is he rich? —ls he rick? Yes, he abounds in
wealth; but docs that afford any evidence that
he will make a kind and affectionate husband?
Is he rich ? Yes ! “his clothing is purple and
fine linen, and he fares Miimptoously every day"
but can you infer from tins he is virtuous? Is
he rich ? Yes, he has thousands floating on

“take to themselves wings and fly away ?” and

brought its labors to a close on Saturday

i plished, save the good feeling which it has gc

of the banking capital, and the vigorous pro
secution ot the various important lines of in
ternal improvement now in progress, as cssen
! tial to the attainment of the great end in view.
They also recommend another State Conven
tion to assemble in Norfolk in November
next, and the appointment of Delegates to
the Augusta Convention.

BURNING Ol’ THE WASHINGTON.

Judd, of Garretsville, U., tile accuracy of
which may bo relied upon.

arly unfortunate. It is thought the boat might

and by this tunc the steering ropes had been
Tho Washington left Cleveland, on her
down passage from Detroit, on June 14tli, at
8 A.M. Slie proceeded on her way safely
until Saturday, 3 o’clock, A. M., when she
hud arrived in the vicinity at Silver Creek,
about 33 miles from Buffalo.
The boat was now discovered to be on fire,
which proceeded from beneath tho boilers.
Tho passengers were alarmed, and aroused
from their slumbers. Such a scene of cont u
sion and distress ensued as those only of my
readers can imagine who have been in similar
Despair did not, however, completely pos
sess the mass until it became evident that the
progress of the flames could not be arrested.
From that moment the scene beggars all de
scription. Suffice it to say, that numbers pre
cipitated themselves from the burning mass
into the water; some ot them with a shriek of
despair, and others silently sunk beneath the
waves; others, momentarily more fortunate,
swam a short distance and drowned, others
still, on pieces of boards and wood, arrived on
the beach—yet some even of these sank into
a watery grave.
Tho small boat had by this time put off,
loaded with about 25 souls, for the siiore.
These arrived safe, picking up one or two by
the way. Tho writer of this article was one
of tho number. Other small boats came to
our assis ance, which, together with the Wash
ington’s boat, saved perhaps a majority of the
persons on board.
It is supposed that forty perished. It is
impossible to compute tho precise number.
Many remained oh the boat until it was wrap
ped m one sheet of flame, Os these there is
reason to believe that numbers perished in the
conflagration; while others, half burned, pre
cipitated themselves into the watery element;
thus suffering tho double agony of death, by
tiro and water.
The utmost exertion was used to run her on
shore, until it became necessary to stop the
engine in order to let down the small boat,
which having been done, the fire had progres
sed so far as to render it impossible again to
start the machinery.
I will give a few particulars of the losses
of the passengers.
Mr. Shudds is the onfy survivor of his family,
consisting of seven. A lady passenger lost three
children, a sister and a mother. Mr. Michael
Parker lost his wife and parents, sister and her
It is proper to say, that while the writer alone
is responsible for the foregoing statements, all the
survivors to whom the paper has been submitted
concur in the parts set forth.
R. J- JUDD, of Garretsville, O.
Many weie tho heart rending scenes that occur
red in this terrible catastrophe. An English fa
mily, consisting of a man, his wife and two chili
dren, came on board the boat at Toledo. While
the tiro was raging, '.he man worked by the side
of our informant till they coukl stay on board no
longer. Then, he and his wife, threw their chil
dren overboard and jumped in after them. The
father and two children were drowned—the mo
ther was saved.
Several passengers went into convulsions with
terror, on the deck, at the outset, and perished in

Money Market and city Intelligence.
. Stocks were little, if any better than yesterday.
Nobody will embark in enterprises of any sort

feat has no influence on Martin Van Burcn.—
, That he will not change is evident to the most
, ordinary observer. What then? We must en
[ dure the ills of a mal administration of the Go.
vernment till 1841. The agitation of thccurrcn
-1 cy question is still looked to as the means of re
electing the present incumbent, and we are assu
red that it will be continued with redoubled vio
lence. We are blamed by some for mixing up
politics with our money notices, but how can wo
avoid it. The Government lives by its agitation
of the monetary elements, and if our rulers will
mingle politics with the vital question of currency,
is it not encumbent On us to show where rests
the evil under which the country is now laboring?
Every attempt to avoid the discussion of money
politics is but leading the public mind astiay from
the true sources of our difficulties. Wo must
return to the bank credit policy of 1796 and 181 G,
before we can get smoothly on in the work of in
dustry and national enterprise, before the Union
can enjoy the benefits of a uniform currency.—
Mr. Van Buren will not return to this beaten
track. Ho is endeavoring to force the nation
along another road, a road that inevitably loads to
the destruction of democracy and the erection of
an elective monarchy on the ruins of our insti
tutions. Tho people’s representatives, to save
the country from such an issue, must crush the
Sub Treasury Scheme. If they do not, the peo>
pie themselves must rise in their might, return a
new Congress and repeal tho measure which is
more than probable is a law, while we are writing.
If they return a new Congress ready to do their
will and the President interposes his veto, the
Congress of 1841 will settle tho question whether
we are to continue a republic or not. Tho Sub
Treasury Scheme is the key to an elective mo
narchy, and the people should know this fact.
Tho intention of our rulers is to overturn our in
stitutions, and their infernal machine” is fully
adequate to tho task.
But, if the bill of abominations passes, will the
people rise in their strength and demand its re
peal? We think they will, for we have, studied
the American character to no purpose. Arc tho
people of those States ready to sacrifice their pro
perly at specie prices to pay their debts contrac.
ted under tho credit system?—ls the farmer pre
pared to sell his bushel of wheat at 30 cents, and
to pay a direct tax for the support of the Govern
ment of ten cents out of this? Is ho going to
submit to an additional tax of five cents more on
this pittance, to support the State Government?
Will the enterprising, industrious and moral elec
tor without money see himself unable to procure
credit lor the work of his hands, because he can
not furnish to the avaricious capitalist fast securi
ty for the loan of some two or three hundred
dollars? Are our merchants craven enough to
sec their earnings swept from their hands by the
establishment of a specie and highly appreciated
currency, while that of Groat Britain is made up
of credit paper suitable to tho spirit of the age?
Is there an American with a drop of blood in
his veins willing to sec the President of the Uni
ted States hold the key of the National Treasury
in one hand, while he brandishes the sword in
tho other?—The answers to these questions can
bo nothing short of—NO, NO, NO! Then let
the Sub Treasury bill pass. Marlin Van Buren
will have such a storm around his head as repub
lican servant never had before. Crusar like, he
will quail, when the crown is offered to him by
his vassals. The voice of tho people will be the
daggers of a Brutus and Cassius to his bare and
anti republican heart. Let us lake all things easy
then. The country cannot endure the reign of
misrule much longer. The fate of Mr. Van Ba
ron is sealed. Quem dens, &c.
We hear that the Railroad Bank of Vicksburg
is issuing post notes at nine months, payable at
the Girard Bank in Philadelphia, in redemption
of its old post notes. If this should become a
genral thing with the Mississippi banks,exchange
on that State must appreciate. Mississippi paper
was quoted today at 15 to 16 per cent. Some
step is necessary with Mississippi to enhance its
scoutitics: abroad. Some eighteen months ago,
its principal stocks commanded a premium of
six per cent in London. Now it is even below
par, and the reason is to be found in tho extract
dmary depreciation of its bank paper and in the
ruinous rale of exchange with New York. On
the other had, something must bo done hy those
banks to save them from the operation of the poli.
cy of Government, should it be carried out. That ,
a large quantity of their paper has already been i
bought up in’thc northern cities is evident from '
the appreciation of its price*, if we were not privy
lh £ f ?® t ’ Governm,:n t give up its policy,
Mr. Biddle will resume instantly, and we should
not find Mississippi a whit behind her sister
Southern States, even though the balance of foreign
debt against her is some seven millions of dollars.
Echango on London yesterday was heavy at 9+
to 91; but we should nat be surprised to sec it go
up to 112 in time for the steamers. It j g not p n
the power of the banks here to keep it down if the
Sub Treasury bill pass before the Great Western
and Sirius start.
Cotton Trade r~~
The season is drawing fast to a close. A1 ready
have the large cotton boats on the Western and
Southern wateis gone into ordinary and exporta
tion to market is confined to flats and smaller ves 1
sets. At New Orleans and Mobile the supply .
must ba very light till the rivers go up in the au !
tumn. The rise in the North Alabama and Ten- i
ncssee waters has let out a great portion of the <
crop of that region. It is calculated that the re- 1
mams cannot exceed 20,000 bales, and that
amount is so scattered over the country in such j
small parcels, (hat it will probably bo consumed L
at home The reskluo of the crop in South Ala- (r
ljunn and Mississippi is comparatively light. In
the Charleston ami Savannah markets tho supply
depends a gooJ deal on the state of those of Now
Orleans and Mobile. A decicasing stock in tho
latter places will bo sure to produce one in the
former towns. The stock had decreased at New
Orleans up to the evening of the 7th of June to
00,50-1 bales against 49,100 last year, and 77,124
the season before. The condition of this marl is
not, therefore, unpromising. But the great diffi
culty lies in the total breaking up of the buyers,
whose relations and credit had been tho work of
years to establish. Nothing can prevent a fall
of prices even now, short of a constant demand
for the staple arising from the liberal policy of tha
U. S. Bank. However, the sources of supply
being partially cut off, as we have shewn abovo
and the lightness of the stocks being taken into
consideration, it is not probable that rates will
remain for any length of lime at a depressed fig
ure, even if Mr. Biddle should stop discounting at
the south. But great losses may be experienced
if he does withdraw from tho market at this junc
ture. We have been creditably informed that the
news of his withdrawal, as stated in the New Or»
leans Transcript, is not true. The probability is,
therefore, in the upward tendency of tho Liver
pool market on the Ist of June, that the balance
of the crop will be taken at fair and remunera
ting rates to the planter.
In relation to the condition of the stocks, re*
ccipts, &c., of the late crop, Levy’s juries Cur
rent informs us that the increase of receipts in
the United States porta this season over those of
last is 398,144 bags, of exports 361838 do., and
of stocks on hand, 72,003 bales. This increase
was to be expected from the impulse which had
been given to the cotton raising. The total re
ceipts at all the marts of the Union up to June
7th, are 1,652,124 bags against 1.253 900 last
season. The exports are 1,522,207 bales against
1,160,160,169 same time last year. The exports, it
will be seen, are thus nearly equal to the receipts.
By the Ist of August the stock of cotton will be
very short in this country. This is known abroad,
and it is known too that Mr. Biddle can control
the market if he so pleases. This being the case
rales must advance. On the other hand a fresh
activity in tho manufacturing districts of Eng
land, will he sure to throw up prices, though we
cannot hope for a continuance of such orders as
| those which went out by tho steam ships, while
government is so hostile to banks .
It lias been repeatedly asked, where has Eng
land found a market for 928,813 hales of cotton,
sent to her from this country since the Ist ofOc-’
tober, 1837 1 The crisis broke up our import
trade. How has England consumed so much l
raw material at such high prices? The solution
of these questions is to be found in the groat ex- *
portation of cotton twist from Groat Britain to '
the continent. The corn law policy of England
has driven Switzerland, Belgium, Russia and
Germany to improve their manufactures. Tho
British masters exported of cotton twist—
In 1831 58,846,308 pounds
Here we sec where our cottons have gone. Our
exports to G. Britain this season, allowing 400
pounds to the hale, are 391,525,200 pounds. It
will very nearly require the half of this to pro
duce the weight of twist exported in 1837. Those
facts must have been well known to Mr. Biddle
when he argreed to loan the southern buyers mo
ney to purchase cotton.
Much has been said against Mr. Biddle’s gd
ing into the cotton trade, even indirectly. Ho
has saved to the southern planter on the exports
of this season not less than #21,491,512, taking
the amount of exports given above. In May and
Juno 1837, wo saw fair to good fair cotton soil in
New Orleans, at 5 a cents per pound. Mr.
Biddle entered tho market in July, and prices
went up to 104 to 13 cents. Had ho not med
dled with tho subject, prices could never have ri
sen, for all the great buyers had been broken up.
The planters would fallen a prey to little specula
