The public will probably be surprUed to learnj
. that the famous Springfield Ox, known by the
name of "Maxiraus," must give place in the
calcto another, heavier and nobler than he. Vc
!l tide to the ox raided, fatted, and now owned,
by Col. Asa Stcbbins, of Dccrficld. This ox is
but six years old, and it is said by good judges
will now weigh thirty-three hundred pound ; and
is as remarkable for symmetry of form an he is
for his surprising fatness and "weight. Maxtmus,
if we recollect right, weighed (live wrightj but
2700. The Dccrficld ox is, probably, the heav
iest ever raised, fatted, or exhibited in this coun
try, and is well worth the attention of the curious.
Col. S. is now on the way with him to Uoston,
where, we understand, he will be exhibited.
Cjrraw. -The Legislature of South-Carolina
have passed an Act incorporating this Village,
which has been heretofore known by the name of
Chatham, and given it the name of C1IEKAW.
This is the ancient Indian name of the place
,Whatmodvej,.if anyv operated to effect this
change of name, is unknown here : no British
. name could have been less exceptionable than
that' of Chatham f that name was worn, adorned,
and rendered sacred to freedom, by one of the
greatest and best of Englishmen, and cannot be
reiinouished bv those who know and feel its char
acter in the history of civil liberty, without re
gret. But the powers that be have enacted, that the
j lace shall be known as Cherdiv let us with
cheerfulness adopt the name : as Chrratv let it
rise and prosper ; there is no magic in a name ;
it is the local and geographical advantages winch
nature has given to the place, and the civic vir
tues of its inhabitants, that must render the name
" which it bears, august and respectable.

In our last paper, on information derived from
a eentleman who had lately been at the Indian
Springs', we stated, there was little probability of
a treaty being conpluded with the Creek Indians.

propitious than was anticipated. Runners hav-

The citizens of Salisbury have so long enjoyed
fortune's lovors, as it respects fire, having never
been severely visited by that di-tiessing calami
ty, which has made such dreadful havoc and
which has been attended with such fatal conse
quences in all parts of the United States, that
they appear disposed to fold their aims in ap
parent safety, and trust to heaven for the result.
It is true we have an engine ; but not one third
of hc citizens would know where to find it. We
have no such tilings as buckets, fire-hooka, lad
ders, 8cc. whicB arc essentially necessary In
case of fire.
These reflections were suggested on witness
ing the fire which broke out on last Wednesday
night, which, at its commencement, bid fair to
have involved the greater part of Salisbury in
one wretched scene of cor.lbration ; and it is
owing entirely to the heavy fall of rain, which
enabled us more conveniently to supply the en
gine with water, that its progress was arrested.
It is time for us to arouse from our lethargy.
Experience i sometimes a sad lesion, but it is
universally acknowledged to be the best teacher ;
and I fear nothing else will awaken us to our
state of danger. We have seen some of the ci
ties of the north almost entirely consumed by
fire ; wc have seen Wilmington and Faycttcviile
fall victims to this devouring clement we hae
hud warnings time afcr time at our own doors ;
stiil we neglect to provide against such an emer
gency. It imperiously demands the attention
of the commissioners. Something should be
done. Let them levy a tax for the purpose of
procuring buckets, fire-hooks, ladders, kc. There
should be a house built in the'strcct for the,pur
pose of keeping the engine secure, and where
it may be bad conveniently, and a company
formed for keepiug it in order. Unless some-,
thing of the kind is attended to, we must ere
longexpect to sec Salisbury in flames. It is
hoped the commissioned
side ration, and that we shall be enabled, for the
future, more effectually to arrest the progress
of fire-

The proceeding! which occupied the House of
Hepresentativrs this day were of an unusual na
ture, and the sitting was protected beyond the
uiual Itour. - It is not practicable to give, at no
late an hour, any intelligible itccouut. cfv,what
passed atnlr Iivdted, were the proceeding accu
rately reported, they were so complicated, that
few bu veteran legislator! would under it and

this time with t he-following plaiu account of hc

and Kayt being called several timei." ,
Orf )' Journal of the preceding day being
read, wlijdt ii always preliminary to proceeding
to butioeii, a mcmlcr remarked on the phrase
ology of a part of it. That part atates the pre
sentations of three memorial. -from 4ha. legUl
tureof Missouri, revpectmg public lands' and
other masters. It was rcmarhed, that it .had
been heretofore, the uniform practice, in an
nouncing a Memorial from n State Legislature,
to state it on the Journal us being from the l.e
gislature cf the Slu'te of Maryland, VlrKiMTfcT.
and, such being the caption of these Memorials
from the Legislature of Missouri, it was sugges
ted that the Journal ought to have conformed t
it ; and a motion was made to insert the words
the State of" Iniforc the word Missouri. And
out of this motion grew the Debate and subse
quent proceedings which consumed the day . .
The reader will be able to comprehend, that
this motion allow ed of allusions to the present
condition of Missouri, and for the display of the
feelings of members on that subject, which gave
to the business an interest whith does not belong
to mere questions of order.
It is necessary to stale another circumstance
which had a bearing on the whole day's business.
It appeared that the Clerk, who makes up the
Journal, had originally written in the Journal
the words now proposed to be inserted. Ily the
rules of the house it is made the duty of the
Speaker to revise and correct the Journal of each
day's proceedings, previously to its being read in
the House. In the performance cf that duty, the
Speaker had erased the words now proposed to
be inserted, with a view, as he stated from the
chair, to prevent the entry on the Journal from
being such as to be capable of being construed us
either assuming for granted, or denying, what
has been the subject of great difference of opin
ion in the House, that Missouri is now a state.
The Journal, however, as he added, was subject
to the pleasure of the House, und open to any al
teration it should think proper to nuke.
1 he question on the motion lor amending the
Journal, as above stated, was taken by Yeas and
Nays 1 and there were Yeas 76, Nays 76. The
Hou being equally divided, the Speaker voted
in the negative j and the motion to amend the
Journal was thus rejected.
Another motion was made to amend the Jour
nal, by inserting, before the word " Missouri,"
rthe words "the territory of." This motion was
negatived, by Yeas and Nays, 150 votes to 4.
Other motions succeeded, and numerous ques
tions; of order ; motions to adjourn were repeat
edly negatived ; but, at length, the contention re
specting the journal was ended by an adjourn
ment, which, it is understood, prevents a renewal
of the controversy, as the Journal can only be
amended on the duy on which it is read, unless a
proposition for its amendment shall lc actually
under consideration at the time of adjournment
on that day, which was not the case when the
House adjourned this day. it).
From official documents elicited by a call from
the House of Representatives, it appears, that

army no fewer than 161 leaving one .hundred

The tax on Old Bachelors, that has been pro

more alarm tlun we can readily account for. What
measitirn it would be the most advisable to irdpt
as a substitute, we arc not at present fully prepar
ed to say. Those parties inclinable to matrimo
ny, are compelled to take out a license for that
purpose. We would barely suggest, whether it
might not be proper for those disposed to live a
life oi celibacy, to take out a license for that pm
pose likewise. Another plan may be proposed,
