Dr. Moore, of Maryland, who has written a

more followed and less understood, than any

point out to us a production more disgujting

sad and dismal falling off ; we lament more
for the sake of Ireland, than of Mr. Phillips.

What will the Irish Bar say to thi.s motely

sayings that if our tears could obliterate this
disgraceful record from the life of Charles
Phillips, we should give them freely, not
more for the sake of an old friend, than for
the honor of our common country.
, GtwxI Western CclebvtvUon.
We have not yet received all the details of
tne great western commemoration ot our
National Independence on the bonders of the
Grand Canal ; we have, however, through the
kindness of our correspondents, been able to
collect the following interesting facts.
Agreeably to previous arrangements, ayast

of Salina,on the morning of the anniversary.

pbtnTs ba the line, assembled at the stations

Tlie passengers here disembarked from the
different boats, and the collection of people
becamelriimeijse. At the discharge of sig
nal guns, a procession was formed ; and, es
corted by detachments of militia, procjeeded
ticipated in their performance, orders, were
given by the rv.rshaU of the day, to proceed
to Sallua, the plaoe selected for refreshment.

called out oa the occasion, formed on the bor
ders of the channel, and the towing path was
actually crowded with mtn, women andchi!''
dren. Groups of people yere scattered
through the helds which overlooked th; tran
quil .botcmf the waters, and the read to Sa
Una exhibited nothing but life and animation.
The whole company moved on from the bash,
at the junction of the great western and the
Salina canals, to the Salina basin, under the
discharge", of cannon, with the strains of mu
sic, and the cherring shouts of thousands.
As the ijoats entered the basin, they gave
three cheers, and were answered from the
shore by theroaring of cannon, and the accla
mations of pride and triumph. It is probable
that from eight to ten thousand people were
now assembled, and on which ever side the
eye was turned, every thing was joyful, grand
and magnificent. Standards were flying in
every direction, music was heard from the
different boats, the troops were drawn up in
martial- arrayy - and delightand animatioTr
beamed on every countenance. The company
here formed in order, under the marshals of
the dy, and proceeded to the bower, erected
for the occasion, on the high grounds which
command a view of the Onondaga Lake, and
partook of the great National Festival in a
manner that comported with the nature of the
institution, and the character of a free people
His excellency Governor Clixtos, had
been expressly invited to visit the great west
ern canal on this occasion, aud had accord
ingly "proceeded from Utica to Salina in the
new and' beautiful baik called the Oneida
Chief y in company with a number of distin
guished citizens It is needless to say that he
was received with every demonstration of
enthusiasm and respect.
The return of our national anniversary was
indeed a proud day to the western district.
No one who witnessed the numerous meet
ing at S:ilina, but called to mind. , the enter
prising character of the state, and the, rapid
inarch of power and refinement in the western
world. Twenty-five years ago, the fairest
portion of the. country bordering oh the great
lakes in our own state, , were covered .with
dark forestst and remained the retreats of
barbarism. On the very spot where the eel
ebration took place where thousands of tit?
i2ens had assembled where the genius of
civilization had wrought her wonders, and
planted her monuments--nav, where the wa
ters of the great western canal, now gliding
along in silent majesty, and almost induced
a belief that every thing wan the illusion of
enchantment but a few short vcar since,
not a settlement could be found. This coun
try is now the seat of mcrol and physical
strength, the field of enterprise, the nursery,
of statesmen and jurists, and the, bites of cit
ies and villages. The late commemoration,
which drew together many of our most dis
tinguished citizens from various, quarters of
the state, was a deserved tribute oi respect to
the western district, and was a design well
calculated to prove the'benign tendency of our
ft eiZgyjtejrlsItjflgQ y
people great and happy. Since this method
menced, we anxiously hope that it will long
be adopted and cherished. We would be
happy to see the people of the west assemble
every year on- the border of the gre&t west
ern canal, and while they pel form those devo
tions jhat are calculated to perpetuate the re
publican TnsiTrutToTs'established by our fath
ers, also recollect the importance "of prbsec"0
ting those public improvements that serve to
cement the union of tlie states, create, circu
late, and retain wealth in the nation, and give
our republic a more enviable rank on the
theatre of empires. '. ,'
Finally f although we had not the pleasure
of joiuing in a celebration which, in our opin

tlie following interesting remarks from one of

14 Among other things whi.h
caught mv attention, was the number of Indians
who attended the celebration. I should think
rht there were between one and two hundred
prevent some of them dressed in the gaudy
costume of their trijrcs. They Mood gszing in
mute admiral ion at the new scenes continually
burning upon their astonished sight. Here they
saw thousands of people, crowding in like a tor
rent from every quarter. The great western
canal- or in other words, a river of one hundred
miles in length, opened in a few months by the
hands or the white ini-n, and us far their eyes
could reach, covered with bouts and skiffs; the
standards and banners of the military waving in
(iiuiuph,and glistening in the sun ; the musieof
several bjnd filled the fields with melody ; the
K'rcat guns shaking the hills with thunder ; and
(lie shout and chcerings of many thousands
rcncHng thc heavens all these things were In
deed calculated to astonish the poor Indians, and
induce them to think that a ki-id of supernatural
spirit w as changing the face of that country which
was lately a wilderness. I must confess, that thej
sight of the poor Indians cast a cloud over myv
mind, and for a moment darkened the splendii
scenery that imparted so much pleasure. Here,
said I to myself, are the remnants of powerful
tribes and nations who once winged the ariow,
pursued the monsters of the wilderness, and sung
the songs of war over these very lands ! Here
they once met the foe, and trampled on their,
enemies, in the pride und exultation of victory !
Here they once heard the thunders of the great
spirit in his wrath, and shrunk from the light
nings of hi eye I Here they once indulged in
the bold and rapid eloouence of nature, as they
met in their councils of war, end alone forgot tho
majesty of their species, as they fell down to wor
ship the Cod of their fathers ! But here, alas!
are all that remains. What a comment on the
changes of the moral universe what a picture
of human instability. Their power is withered,
as God m his anger withers the verdure of the
fields j and their numbers are scattered, as the
winds of heaven dissipate the seeds in harvest
timje. Here they come ; poor, weak, humbled,
and despised, to behold the rejoicings of the white
men, in the bosoni of their own country, whero
the marriage feast of their grandfathers may have
been celebrated. All this may be right. The
tide of civilization rolls on from the east to the
west with ccaleless power, and civilized nations
and savage tribes must stand in silence and help
lessness, and behold its progress. No arm can
be lifted to arrest it no barrier interposed to
stop its course. A few more years,, und even
these vestiges of foi-mer tribes will be extinct, as
iheir footsteps will be followed by the pressing
pursuit of civilization, to the' rocky tnounlnins
and over the extended spine of the Aiuu, to tho
shore of the great western ocean. None will be
left to wail over the desolations of revolution;
and the very cabins in which they sharpened their
hatchets, or smoked thc'caluTTiut.wiJI be examined
as the remains of tmtKjUity, by the searching cyc
of the philosopher.
