Mr. Davis looks younger than he did

enjoying excellent health, and his appear
$uce ia the parlor of the Gait House last
night confirmed the report. He is in the
sixty-fifth year of his age. yet his step is
aa firm aa thaCof a young man, and bis
eye as bright. He had a cane in his
band, bat it did not seem to be carried in
the least degree for support. Uis hair is
considerably grayed a medium iron gray
in color aud his beard is also tolerably
white, though that on his jtemples is still
dark, and apparently but little touched
by time- He sears a full beard, with a
clo8ely 4rimed moustache, anJ this possi
bly aided to make his face, appear round
er and fuller than we have seen it in i
long time. He is not quite six feet in
height, of slender build, and his carriage
is erect and graceful, his manner kind
and grave, his countenance placid, and
his tone clear and round and resonant
His brow is broad aud deep, with the
phrenological location of the powers of
observation fairly developed, and hia
whole appearance, while not impressing
the casual ob.erver with the idea that he
is a man of extraordinary powers, still
bears the stamp of "Intellect and force of

not ask for demonstration when told that

many hundred tunes in a second ? or
that there exist j animated and regularly
organized beings many thousands of whose
bodies laid together would not extend an

have disclosed, which ttachts that every

of periodical movemeuts ; regularly recur

currence which affect us with the sense of
the diversity of colors? That, for in

We cannot allude too often to the nec
essity of a thorough organization iu this

defeated, nxt only iu November, but in

The following sensible remarks on this
suhject,' although addressed to the Con
servative Executive Commit tee of Catawba
county, apply with equal force to every
one who has expressed hia own righteoua
indignation in the prediction that ''after.
the 4ih of March next their iniquity shall
be gainful and iusoleut no longer."
Of the encouragement given to official
knavery and theiving throughout the
country, Governor Bkovx thus spoke :
How cau the public service bs reformed
when every inducement to knavery and
thievery is thus held out by the head of
the government itself by converting the
whole officering into a retinue of partisans,
intent only on retailing place and curry
ing political favor That there will still
be found houest men in place whom no
inducement can tempt to be wrong, is
readily conceded ; but it cannot be denied
that the system is utterly demoralizing,
and that the demoralization has been
openly, as well as elaborately, encouraged
by the present Administration. To such
an extent has it gone that these creatures
who fatten on the spoils assume an air of
mastery over the people, threaten them in
their business, anuoy tbem with malicious
prosccuiious, disciiarflate in the service

testimony could only be gotten-by a com
mittee of Congress, when sitting with
closed doors, and under a quasi secrecy,
to secure the merchants who might give
evidence from ruiu and vexatious delays

Custom-house ring. Iu Texas large uum
bers of citizens are said to have been sum

charges, to defeat them of casting a vote.
Bills are lobbied in Congress with direct
reference to the political character of the
parties interested. No man of opposing
thought feels safe from the hostility of
the Government if it can touch him any

some of the hill farms of Masiachusetts.
August was more chterles s, if possible,
than the summer months already passed.
Ice was formed half an inch thick. Indian
corn was so frozen that the great part was
cut down and dried for fodder. Almost
every green thing was destroyed both in
this country and in Europe. Papers re
ceived from England state "that it would
be remembered by the present generation
that the year 181C was a year in which
there was no summer." Very little corn
ripened iu the New England and Middle
States. Farmers supplied themselves
from the corn produced in 1S15 for the
seed of the spring of 1817. It sold at from
$4 to 6' 5 per bushel.
September furnished about two weeks
of the mildest weather of the season.
Soon after the middle it became very cold
and frosty ; ice formed a quarter of an
October produced more than its share
of cold weather, frost and ice in common.
November was cold and blustering.
Snow fell so as to make good sleighing.
December was mild and comfortable.
The above is a brief nummary of "the
cold summer of 1816," as it was called in
order to distinguish it from the cold sea
son. The winter was mild. Frost and
ice were common in every month f f 'he
year. Very little vegetation matured in
Eastern and Middle States. The eun's

NO WAR WITH ENGLAND.
The details of tho award of the Geneva
Commission bave been made through tho
enterprise of the New York journals. We
have those details in a special dispatch to
the New York Herald, from which wo
condense the following particulars : Tbe
aggregate award is fifteen and one-half
millions of dollars, of which the amount
awarded to individuals ia $11,500,000,
and to the United States about $4,000,000
for expenses incurred in the pursuit of
the Alabama, Shenandoah and Florada.
On all questions of international impor
tance the arbitrators were a unit. On tbe
money award Sir Alexander Cockburu
thought $15,000,000 too big a sum for
John Bull tn pay to allay the fiery patri
otism of the United States claimants; and,
therefore, did not sign the award, and
