The Protests of England and France. Tl
New York Express learns from a person said to I
in close communion with those w ho know ".what
going on at the Capital that the statement in re gard
to the remonstrances of France and England,
touching C apt. Ingrahain and K oszta, is true. Tl
Express savs :
Mr. Crampton, the British Minister, was the fir
to call on Mr. Mare-y. 'Mr. Sartiges had his it.
structions .Mjine time since to call on the Seen tft
of 'State. These instructions were very specific an
pointed, but their delivery in person was delavc
until Thursday, the 22d fast., owing to the a!enc
of the French Minister at Newport until Wednef .
day evening, when he returned to the Capital. Th .
Governme.it knew that these 'instructions were t
come from France, and had been so informed sp
c:ficallv some time since. The remonstrance is i
terms that Opt. Ingraham's conduct was a violatio
of the law of nations.
Mr. Marcy has bad liis reply ready for some tira .
but it has to undergo some modifications. Austri:
he says, having appealed, to the world to justify it
conduct, the United Slates will also make an aj
pealjto the world itibehalfof jCapt. Ingrahain"
conduct in saving Koszta.
It would 6eem, tlierefore, that each of the fiv
European powers had concluded Iq take grouii
agaiust the United States in regard to Koszta. lit

Mining, as an Investment of Money". The e

tal to invest the same in the business of min ing
in this country, through organized companies. It
has extended to the. Lead Mines, and we hear ot
several companies that have been formedj with
large capital, as reported. '
To insure confidence in mining enterprises, it is
absolutely necessary that all parties concerned
should be well kuown as men of probity, and that
all reports from the mines, whether gooel or bad,
sneiuld be cl aracterized bv a strict adhereuc 10
truth. This last caution ean'tmt be too striet y re
gnrded. not only because the ttudi is right and
profitable- in all-cases, but bi-cause n euteipiises of

lay within the rauge of the ols -i vation of ttn se
who report. them. Mining is no fancy work. It
should be placed and pursued on a legitimate ba
sis, by real men, n t for the purpose of mere spec
ulation, but fr profit Tuis we hope to see done
iu the best way. Tnere is mineral ground enough
here for generations of meu to work on for some

a solitary instance of such excessive increase, but the camp into the city bv a magnificent pageant.
every consideration concurs in the belief that the
increase has been general.
The causes of this are various. There are many
from the States of Alabama a; l Mississippi, who
have been i the habit of receiv.ng a portion of their
fall supply from Xew Oilean-; they are thrown upon
Charleston; there are-others who were in the habit
of purchasing in Ne.v Yrk for sliipment by way of
New Orleans. The channel through' New Orleans
being closed, they have b rii compiled to come to j
Charleston. A Ido ' to this, there is nlore money I
in the country than there has ever been at any j
time before, and the fact that through the extens

become tributary to this road, that Charleston ha

We seldom recommend a maniifactured medi '
cine, believing that, in most cases, nature herself
perfects a cure more rapidly and effectually than
can be accomplished by the vegetablesand miner
als ct medical science. Buj in the matter of dys
pepsia, there are chronic feature about it, which,
very often, defy all the efforts of L-ature to create a
hea.thy action of the digestive organs, it not un
frequently happens that thousands suffer for years,
diseased both in body and in mind, from indiges
tion and its kindred ills. To such, Ho&Ws Ger-
man jitters, prepared by Dr. C. M. Jackson, are
tru.y a in-t valuable preparation. It is a tonic
medicine, giving a healthy action to the stomach,
and will be found highly serviceable at all seasons,
but especially during the spring. Dyspepsia can
only be cured by a patient perseverance in one
course of treatment; and to all those suffering un
der this sad malady we would recommend an ap
plication to the depot of Holland's German Bit
ters, 120 Arch street, Philadelphia. Philadelphia
We have frequently hearJ the celebrated Ger
man Bitters, sold by Dr. C. M. Jackson, 120 Arch
street Philadelphia, spoken of in terms of the high
est commendation, and we honestly believe that it
is one ofthe best medicines adveitised for the com
plaints for which it is recommended. They are
pleasant to the taste, and can je takenr under any
circumstances by the most delicate stomach. The
press, far and wide, have united in commending
this invaluable remedy for dyspepsia, debility, efce. ;
and such are the healing effects of this panacea,
that we hope it may be introeluced into every family
where dyspepsia lias, or is likelv to have a victiir.
