JJA report has been circulated in different
parts of this State, that "Judge Barbour has late
ly written to a gentleman of Oxford, in which he,
in substance, expressed the wish that his friends
would not continue his name as a candidate for
I he Vice Presidency." The Oxford Examiner,
of the 20th ull. makes no mention of this report,
but gives an article from which we extract as
The Examiner says: We have just
learned that Mr. Harbour has promptly
responded to the call uf the Shoceo meet
ing, giving his opinion upon the great
questions which agitate the nation. This
reply, in justice to Mr. Barbour and his
friends, ought to be published forthwith.

Unfortunate Raleigh. The Raleigh
Star of last Friday says: We stop the
press to announce that our city has been
visited by another distressing calamity.
At 1 o'clock yesterday morning, a fire
broke out at the store of Mr. Richard
Smith, which destroyed every building on
that square, fronting Fnyettevillc street,
with the exception of the Bank of New
born, which was preserved with great
difficulty. Nearly all the houses burnt
were occupied as stores. Most of the
dry goods, except those in the store of
Mr. Richard Smith, were saved; but a
large portion of the groceries were des
troyed. The books and records of the
office of the County Register were con
sumed. Further particulars next week.
The Register states that the building
in which the fire originated was owned
by Richard Smith, Esq. and occupied by
himself as a merchant, and by Mr. M.
IJardford, tailor that it is not certainly
ascertained in which division of the house
it originated, but the belief is general that
it was the result of accident and that
the individual loss is very. great, though
by far the greatest sufierer is Mr. Smith;
his loss in money, bonds, goods and hou
ses, cannot be less than 30,000.

On the evening of that day, one of the
mounted rangers of Capt. Ford's com
mand, who was for a short time in Fort
Dearborn, (Chicago,) on the 10th was
received into Fort Armstrong, sick, as
afterwards appeared, with the Cholera.
Between the 26th ult. and the 1st inst.
there were 146 cases; 26 died, 22 were
recovering, and 6 were perfectly cured.
Of the 92 remaining cases, 60 were of a
mild type. Gen. Scott expressed the
opinion, founded on a personal inspec
tion of every individual who has been in
hospital, that the disease is evidently
checked and mitigated. Among the vic

Lieut. Gale, and Surgeon Coleman

few deaths since the morning of the 3d.

Black Hawk taken. The Washing

this morning from Maj. Gen. Scott, con

"Of the prisoners confined at Fort
Armstrong, all the old men, the women,

gray hair on the crown of his head, the
rest is bare, has a high forehead, a Roman
nose, a full mouth, which generally in
clines to be a little open, has a sharp
chin, no eye brows, but a very fine eye;
his head is frequently thrown back on his
shoulders; he is about 5 feet 4 or 5 inch

Texas. The American Adventurers
into the Mexican province of Texas have,
tor some tune past, shown a disposition
to take the government of that country
into their own hands. We have been
informed (says the Frontier Reporter of
the 4th Aug.) by a gentleman who arriv
ed here yesterday from Ayish Bayou,
Texas, that a force of about 500 men,
principally Americans and settlers in that
country, were encamped about five miles
from Nacogdoches; that their object was
to take the fort at that town, which they
determined to put in execution yesterday.
It is stated that Col. Piedras, the Com
mander of that post, was determined,
with a force of about 400 Spaniards and
200 Indians, under his command, to re
sist any attempt that may be made by the
Americans to reduce the place.
The Nachitc;ches Frontier Reporter of
the 17th Aug. mentions the receipt ot a
letter written on the evening of the 9th,
by a gentleman residing in the Sabine,
Road, who says that news had reached
him from Texas, at the moment of wri
ting, that the Mexicans and American
settlers had had an engagement, and that
Col. Piedras was taken with his men,
who fled with him twenty miles from Na
cogdoches. The Colonel held out to the
last, and did not surrender until his se
nior captain presented a pistol to his
breast, and demanded his sword; the
captain at the same time accusing him of
stubbornness and a determination to
have his troops sacrificed; they accord
ingly surrendered, and returned to Na
cogdoches. The loss of the Americans,
three killed and one wounded; that of the
Mexicans, 30 killed and 100 wounded.
The Lousiana Advertiser says: The
news published above from Texas, has
been confirmed by a gentleman who ar
rived in town this morning. An engage
ment took place at Nacogdoches, on the
2d inst. between the Americans and
Mexicans the former were victorious.
The number of killed and wounded falls
short of the number in the foregoing let
ter, not over 10 or 15 being killed. "The
flag of St. Anna now waves over Nacog
doches, and all is tranquil. Private pro
perly is respected. Col. Piedras will be
sent on immediately to the interior, to be
given up to St. Anna.

For publishing weekly in the City of Raleigh
an Agricultural Neivspaper, under Ihe name,
and style of ihe
Farmer's and Planter's Half Sheet.
Our motto is, "Agriculture is the great art which
everr proprietor ot land ought to practise; everv
statesman to patronise, and every individual of the
human family to consider as the chief employment of
his snieces." Dr. Johnson.
fMHS Agricultural paper, will be modelled af
ter one conducted in France with eminent
success, by the Count Lasieyrie, (Lafayette's
son-in-law) and another in England by an asso
ciation of gentlemen, styled "The Farmer's
Weekly Visitor.'' They are both Half Sheets.
The object of so curtailing the dimensions, is to
prevent that ennui and fatigue, always produced
by too great a bulk ot intellectual matter. We
will not say a word in regard to the ffreat ne
cessity of improving our agriculture, that is ad
milted; but it is of great importance, that im
provements now confined to particular neighbor
hoods, should be more generally known, and wo
propose, as it were through a speaking trump, to
proclaim them through all lhe land. In addition
we hope to publish a paper into the columns off
which, the agricultural citizen, heated and vex
ed in the dust and whirlwind of the great high
road of "general politics," may turn as to a par
terre, gay with flowers and adorned with refresh
ing fountains. Not one word of politics shall
enter the columns of our exclusively agricul
There are a few other papers of an Agricultural
type, published in the United States, but they
are too local in their nature and do not sufficient
ly discuss those "matters and things," which ap
pertain to our farming and planting interests.
The Editor himself, has been a practical cultiva
tor of all the staples of the South, and he has the
promised co-operation of many of the most weal
thy and extensive Planters and Farmers of the
South. From them he will receive communica
tions of great value, detailing the "modus ope
randi" of jjieir management.
The "Half Sheet" will be issued as soon as a
specified number of subscribers are obtained.
Postmasters and others to whom suubsc ipt oa
lists are, and will be sent, will be allowed he
usual commissions upon collections.
The terms of the "Half Sheet" will be ONE
DOLLAR ALWAYS in advance.
The Editor at present reside in an adj cent.
State, but will be in Raleigh about he fi st of
