NEW-YORK AMERICAN.
TUESDAY EVENING, NOVEMBER 14, 1837.
Officee, 74 Cedar Street, Iwo doors from Broadway.

We presented briefly yesterday some views as
to the great moral effect of our three days' revolu-
tion in confirming faith in the durability of republi-
can institutions, and in the incorruptibility and sa-
gacity of the people. In the forty-ninth year of a
Constitution, which, it has often been predicted by
its enemies, would not hold us together for half a
century, such a triumph of the genuine principles
of Conservatism in its best and broadest sense-a '
Conservatism that looks far into the future, and
seeks to make that future both sure and prosperous,
-by adhering to the wisdom of the past, and by espe-
cially rejecting "untried expedientn"-such a tri-
umph was most opportune, and quiets the honest
fears of friends, and laughs to scorn the taunts, the
derision, and the doubts, of the adversaries of repub-
lican freedom.
But it is not more for its moral effect in this point
of view, than on the varied industry of the country,
that we rejoice in this triumph of the people.
The message of .Mr. Van Buren, on the opening
of the extra session of Congress-its doctrines of
divorce between the Government and the People-
its espousal of all the most mischievous heresies of
Locofocoism-its rejection of all experience, and its
new readings of the Constitution, which limited the
powers and the designs of that instrument to pro-
curing and paying to its officers hard money, and
the servility with which designs and doctrines so
dangerous were adopted by the Senate, and in some
instances by the House of Representatives, too,-
had created in the nation distrust, uncertainty, and
just apprehension. Hence confidence--without
which no industry can flourish, no pursuits of
agriculture, manufactures, or commerce, be pro
ductive-had fled, and the period for the resumption
of specie payments, to which all efforts had been
honestly directed, and to hasten which, so much
suffering had been endured-seemed far, far thrown
back.
W The triumph over Van Buren Lowo Focoism in
the State, makes sure that resumption, at an early
day. The Convention of Banks to be held in this
city on the 27th, will proceed with confidence, that
now-the obstacles of government experiments be-
ing removed-they can arrange their plans upon
well established financial principles, and calculate
upon their being carried out to a satisfactory issue
by the natural operations of trade, unshackled by
legislative oppression, and undisturbed by political
quackery.
The second grand result then of the Whig tri-
imph in this State, will be the early and sure re-
sumption of specie payments.
We do not hazard this assertion lightly. Our
city banks have by a steady and constant system
of curtailments, brought down their loans very
much. Their circulation has at the same time been
diminishing, while the domestic exchanges are all
in favor of the city. As it was here upon the sea-
board,that the disastrous suspension first took plase,
and spread hence throughout the country, it is here
it should first be terminated. Character and inter-
est are alike concerned in bringing about this result,
and bringing it about speedily. The tendency of
" all things is encouraging. With confidence revi-
ved, and experimental quackery at an end, com-
merce will revive too-the crops going forward,
without any thing like the ordinary orders for im-
ports from abroad, will tend to reduce the premium
upon foreign exchanges-and rather turn to, than
from, our shores, the current of specie. All these
elements examined and deliberately weighed by
the practical men who will assemble hero on the
27th, will enable them,we cannot doubt, to designate
the period when-without some unlocked for inter-
guption or catastrophe-the banks of New York
may and wiU/ resume specie payments; and when
the banks of New York do so, others must follow.
Some inconvenience and some loss will-while
things are in a state of transition-be doubtless ex-


perienced ; but no loss or inconvenience that can, or
should, be weighed an instant against the high
obligation, moral and political, of all parties, to
co-operate in restoring at the earliest practicable
moment, the only true standard of value, hard
money.
It would of course be idle in us, with our limited
knowledge and means of judging, to pretend to say,
when precisely this period will be ; but we hazard
little we apprehend, in stating, that before the Isl
of May, 1838"-and within less than a year, there-
fore, from the period of suspension--the banks oj
this city will resume specie payments.
ELECTION RETURNS.-By the steamboat this
morning, we learn that Alleghany and Cattaraugus
have elected Whig members, and that we have
carried one Whig out of the three members in Jef-
ferson.
From Steuben there are no returns yet, but the
Argus thinks it will send federal" members.
In this case the Assembly will stand 104 Whigs
24 Van Buren.

Mr. Zabriskie's name was mentioned, an error wa

THE TRItTMPH OF GooD PRINc PLES.-Among
the good effects of the late triumph of sound mora's
,ind safe principles in the city of New York, is the
assurance that is now given to all our country
friends that their property sent to market for sale,
there in that city, will be protected from agrarian
violence and destruction. We have no doubt thit
a fear has existed (and very naturally too) ever
since the Loco Foco partygave practical evidence of
their principles, last winter on Hart's flour stores,
th.it property sent from the country for sale was
not safe; and to this fear may be traced in a great
measure the high price of provisions in that city.
This new element of destruction was one that
could scarcely be guarded against in policies of in-
surance, but we trust it is now quieted, and effect-
ually suppressed by the signal rebuke developed
by the ballot boxes. We, therefore, can now, with
all confidence, say to our country friends, send
down your floar, your beet;, and your pork, and
your butter, and your cheese, and your lard, &c.,
to New York, for sound morals and good principles
prevail there ; and though the evils of bad govern-
ment will still for a period cripple industry, and de-
press prices every where : yet ofone thing you m yi
now be sure,-the spirit of destruction is laid in the
dust; and the banner and shield of protection to
property are elevated and respected.
The above remarks are from the Troy Whig,
and indicate the truth of what we have before stated,
that the fear of the disastrous triumphs and doc-
trines of Loco Focoism lies at the bottom of the late
three days revolution in this State.
Apropos of Hart's store." Will it not sur-
prise our Troy contemporary to hear that the own.
er of that store voted for the Loco Foco ticket?-
Yet it is even so.

THE NEW YORK CONSERVATIVES.-We shall
be excused, we are p-rsuaded, for re-producing this
evening, the just compliment paid by Mr. Webster,
on the memorable evening of Friday last, in Fanueil
Hall, to those of our citizens, who, in despite of
party associations, came manfully to the Polls, at
the late Election, in support of the country, and in
opposition to the unhallowed union, and more un-
hallowed doctrines of Tammany Hall and Laco-
Focoism.
There is, indeed, before the country but one
question, and that question has but two sides;"
and he that is not for us, must be against us.
Mr. Webster wou'd not detain the assembly,
except to speak a single word with relation to those
citizens of New York who had quieted the party of
the administration, and contributed to produce the
recent glorious result. He was rejoiced that they
had exhibited sufficient firmness of character and
patriotism of spirit, to prefer, even at great per-
sonal sacrifies, the interests of the country to those
of their party. In New York there were many
such, and while congratulating them on their course,
he would call on others to follow their example-
to stop short at no half-way principles of conser-
vatism. There was before the country but one
question, and that question had but two sides. The
great current of public opinion pointed to the suc-
cess of the Whig cause, and he who woald stand
with one foot on land and the other in the Whig
boat, would probably be convinced that he was
trying a disastrous and embarrassing experiment.

WHAT is THERE IN A NAME ?--While the popu-
lar favor sustained Van Burenism, it was "the de-
mocracy of numbers"-now that it has tumbled
the idol from its base, the same favor is the federal
party." Words, however, cannot alter facts, nor
all the hacknied phrases of party, mystify this
simple result of the election, thaiL the people tuuk
the matter into their own hands-and themselves
righted the wrongs they were suffering under. If
the people," and the federal party," be synoni-
mous-the Argus slang is right ; if not-not.

EXECUTIVE DICTATION.-It has-been the una-
vailing lamentation of the Whigs ever since the
fatal era of Gen: Jackson's election as Pres:dent,
that the Executive branch had virtually annihilated
and swallowed up the legislative branch of the Go-
vernment-that in fact the two Houses of Con-
gress seemed to meet only to sanction the measures
prescribed to, and prepared for, them by the Presi-
dent and his irresponsible advisers,
The habit ofslavery-for baser slavery than this
we cannot imagine-like all other habits, acquires
strengtllh by acquiescence; and Mr. Van Buren
undertakes, it seems, to send down to the chief
committee of the House of Representatives, that
of the Ways and .Means, the bills ready drawn
which he wishes to have adopted, and they are
forthwith adopted literatim et punctuatim, by
that committee-submitted to the House as the
fruit of the independent labors and investigation
of their committee, and as such adopted by the
House.
For the truth of this alarming and disgraceful
act, we have thle voucher of Mr. Fletcher, of Bos-
ton, a member of the Committee of Ways and
Means. In a recent speech to his constituents in


) Faneuil Hall, Mr. Fletcher made this statement :
During the session, the business projects, upon
which the House was called to act, came almost en.
tirely from the Committee of Ways and Means.-
There are nine members of that committee, only
Stwoof whom are understood to be opposed to the
general policy of the administration. I suppose
I you would like to know the manner in which the
business was arranged for the House. I will tell
t you the ways,-the means you will all see in due
- time. You doubtless suppose that this Committee
f of Ways and Means has some duty to do ;-
some ways to devise, some means to find out; some
plans to originate and mature for the action of the
s House. The committee, you imagine, look over
the message, see what is iccommended to be done
s for the benefit of the country; consult together as
e to the best measures; and lay the result of theii
- deliberations before the House. Is this your idea,
Mr. President? Is this what you think, fellow-
citizens? If it is, I am sorry to inform you that
e you labor under a very great mistake. I once en-
tertained the same ideas; Lut I soon found my er
g, ror. No such thing, sir-no such thing. The
chairman of the committee steps up to the Whiti
House, and there receives from the President, o
n the Secretary of the Treasury, such bills as the]
h wish to have passed by the House. The chairman
puts the bills into his pocket, takes them to the
s committee; withoutany examination, the majority
it of the committee approve them ; the minority cai


that there were only two opposition members on
the committee. The majority would do, nothing
for the people, and the minority could do nothing,
-except to report the doings of their masters in
the committee, and the House, to their masters, thd
people-and this, at least, I, for one, am resolved to
do. Very many petitions, from almost all the
States, were sent into Congress for the establishli-
mentof a National Bank. These petitions, as they
were presented, by a mutual understanding, were
referred to the Committee of Ways and Means;
and suffered to lie on the table till the whole should
come in ; when, as was supposed, they were to be
taken up and considered. So the matter stood,
when, on the last day but one on which that com-
mittee sat, the chairman, without preface or ex-
planation, introduced the above resolution. It was
opposed by one opposition member-the other be-
ing absent-and the chairman was asked what had
become of the petitions ? They yet lay on the ta-
ble, but the,majority passed the resolution, without
opening or reading one of them. The resolution
was sent in, and by the help of the previous ques-
tion was forced through the House. No doubt can
be entertained that this resolution came down from
the Executive in the precise form in which it pass-
ed. Here was a great and most manifest outrage on
the liberties of the citizens. At least, they have a
right to petition, if they have have no other ; and
yet, in a time of the greatest anxiety, when it was
of the most vital importance that the views of the
people should be communicated to their representa-
tives, here was a successful attempt on the part of
the Executive to cut off this intercourse ; to pre-
vent the voice of the people from being heard ; to
erect a barrier between the people and their con-
stituents.
At the head of 1this Committee stands C. C
CAMBRELENG--now condemned by a majority of
three thousand three hundred of his constituent s as
an unfaithful servant. Will MR. CAMBRELENG
retire ? Again we call upon him to SPEAK.

"How are the mighty fallen! And by"the
People's hand Low lie the proud, and smitten
by the weapons of the Poor, the blacksmith's ham-
mer and the woodman's axe Their tale is told !
And for that they were rich, and robbed the poor
-and for that they were strong, and scourged the
weak-and for that they made laws, which turned
the sweat of Labor's brow to blood.-FOR
THESE THEIR SINS, .THE NATION
CASTS THEM OUT !!

Facts are stubborn things.-[Globe.j
Ay, sir, and so are jackasses. Of course you
and your facts are equally "stubborn."- [Louisville
Journal.]

[From the Baltimore American.]
It will be seen, by the subjoined article from the
tit. Louis Bulletin of 1st instant, that difficultiesare
likely to arise in reference to a tract of country,
which the British and American authorities have
heretofore agreed to regard as a neutral ground, but
upon which it would seem the Hudson Bay Com-
pany has established hunting stations, extending
their exercise of possession to the south of the
Columbia river. As to the latter part of the alleged
aggression, there can be no doubt that it is an in-
fringement of our territory, as universally conceded,
whilst the former portion of the charge shows, in a
strong point of view, the necessity of having well
defined boundary lines. It would really seem as if
Congress had a deep rooted antipatlhy,to the estab-
lishment of boundaries. In the case of Michigan,
there was no interference on the part of the Na-
tional Legislature until matters had almost gone so
far as to create a civil war. The North Eastern
Boundary, dividing the territory of Maine from the
British possessions, has been suffered to remain un-
settled up to the present moment, c';himugh the
treaty of Ghent twenty-two years since made pro-
vision for its final adjustment, and there is every
probability that the affair will yet be the source of
serious disagreem,-nt between the two countries.
In addition we now have the case before us where
no insuperable difficulty could have existed to a
proper understanding by which the territory in
question should have been recognized as the pro-
perty of its real owner. I*not, we would ask,
such a temporising, unsatisfactory policy unworthy
of the representatives of a great people ; and does
it not show a total dereliction of duty on their part?
The inevitable consequence of doubt in such m:it-
ters is to involve the sacrifice not only of national
dignity but of individual right. It leads of neces-
sity to dissatisfaction among those who may have
expended time and labor on improvements, not to
know of what Government they are the subjects,
and where to appeal fora redress of Wvrongs. What
a spectacle have we lately seen in the case of Mr.
Greely? A public functionary discharging duties
assigned him by a sovereign State, taken up by a
foreign power and committed to jail as an aggres-
sor, when to have declined the bu-iness in which he
was engaged would have been a non-performance
of duty. We are, and have uniformly been, the
advocates of a peaceful policy, nor would we be
pleased to see force resorted to, until every other
mode of ascertaining our rights shall have failed.
With this peaceful policy, however, we wish to
see combined dignity and firmness. If territory be
worth claiming, it is certainly-worth possessing,
and we cannot understand the child's play that
eaves in a state of uncertainty, matters involving
the happiness of thousands, and the territorial in-
tegrity of the Union. Congress should at once take
such measures as will induce a full understanding


as to the points in doubt. If the debateable ground
belongs to us, we should have it, and if on the other
hand it is; the property of the British, in the name
of fairness and justice let them have full control
over it, but not otherwise.
Yesterday we took occasion to notice our Wes-
tern Territory upon the Columbia River and the
Pacific Ocean, with a view to call the attention ol
the public to the subject. It we'll be perceived by a
recurrence to the treaty between this c untry and
* Great Britain, we believe, that a large district of ter-
ritory through which the boundary line was not
settled, was to be considered by both parties as
neutral territory, on which neither of the parties
3 were to make any settlements until the boundary
r line was established. We refer to the treaty from
e recollection, not having a copy of it before us, nor
i can we obtain one readily, or we would quote it in
r terms.
This tract of country, if we recollect rightly,
- extends from 49 degress to about 54 degrees north
t to the old British line, and extending east nearly
- eight degrees of longitude. And yet the Hudson
- Bay Company have taken possession of all this.

y ers and trappers, and from which every one else
n is excluded. Nor is this all. They have pushed
e south across the Columbia River, and have estab-
y listed their settlements on the south side of tha
n stream, and have extended their occupation, by


we inquire, are our fur traders to maintain their
interests, and compete with this Company, holding
such superior advantages, and restrained by no law,
human or divine, but the promptings of interests
and power, unless our Government look at this
subject in time, and take active measures to protect
their interests and those of the United States
in this remote region of our country.
The object of the possession of this territory is
to set up a claim upon the ground of the possession,
and acquiescence in it by our Government, and
make the Columbia river ultimately the dividing
territorial line between the two countries. Nov,
it should not be forgotten, that there is not a sinse
safe harbor on the Pacific Ocean, south of t:ie
mouth of the Columbia River, and between ttat
and the Mexican line. Whereseon the North of
the Columbia River, there are several safe harbors
before you reach 49 degrees north.
In the present state of things there is now no
competition in the trade on all this western coast.
The Hudson Bay Company so far undersell all
other competitors as to monopolize the whole trade.
The exclusive possession of the country has ena-
tled the Company to push their trading parties to
the lower regions towards the sea, and entirely over
the neutral territory on the east, until they are ra-
pidly coming in contact with the American compa-
nies there. The result cannot be doubtful, under
such circumstances. Our companies will be driven
from the field, or have to fight their whole way
against the hosts of Indians in the bay and under
the influence of the Hudson Bay Company, and
the result can easily be foreseen. The value of the
Indian trade and trapping to the Hudson Bay Com-
pany, south of latitude 49, is worth annually $500,-
000-the whole of this they have monopolized, by
infringing the terms of the treaty, and encroaching
upon the rights of this country. Let it be looked to.

WAR ON THE FRONTIER OF MISSOURI.-We
learn by a gentleman direct from the upper Missou-
ri counties, some further particulars in relation to
the apprehended difficulties with Ihe Osage Indians
on our border. These Indians are settled on a
tract of land which adjoins our western State line,
and lately have moved down to the line. They nre
represented to be in a very destitute and starving
condition, and on several occasions have killed the
cows and hogs of the settlers to assuage their hun-
ger. It is alleged that they have crossed the line.
From the allegations, orders have been issued to
drive them frorn the State line, and our informant
says, that on Wednesday last, the troops under the
command of Major General Lucas and Br. Gen.
Almond, from Jackson and Saline counties, were
to set out for the section where the Indians were
encamped. It was the purpose of Gen. Lucas to
induce the Indians to remove peaceably if he could,
but forcibly if necessary.

The Annual Meeting of the .New York Young
.Men's Bible Society will be held this evening, at
seven o'clock, in the Broadway Tabernacle. The
advertisement sets forth the order of exercises.
This Society supplies Bibles to destitute families
in our city, to emigrants, among whom it has dis,
tribute some sixty-four thousand during the pre-
sent year! to all humane and charitable institutions,
to the military posts, the navy yard, and our na-
tional ships, to all Sunday schools that cannot else.
where procure them, to Sunday schools in Illinois,
in Michigan, and in Wisconsin territory, and to
all clergymen, for those whom, in their visitations
through their parishes, they find without Bibles.
To render interesting the celebration of such a
Society's anniversary, we need simply refer to
facts like these.
P. S.-We just learn this celebration is post-
poned tilr THURSDAY evpningj 1 t the came
place.
DR. STEvENS.-It was announced,pme months
since, that this distinguished Surgeor'h ad retired
from the Chair of Surgery, in the Colge of Physi-
cians and Surgeons. It appears, however, that
students of medicine will not be deprived of his
valuable services as a public teacher. The Regents
of the University of the State, at their meeting on
the 27th ult., appointed Dr. Stevens, Emeritus
Professor of Clinical Surgery in the College. He
will lecture at the Hospital; and all students of
medicine, attending the practice of that Institution,
will have the privilege of attending his Lectures
gratuitously.

JUST TRIBUTE.-The Chamber of Commerce
as will be seen in the annexed correspondence
have done an act of well-timed and well-merited
justice, in their vote of thanks to the Naval Officers
and men on this station, for their alacrity and zeal
on a recent occasion:
To Commodore Ridgely, .Navy Yard, Brooklyn.
Sir: The Chamber of Commerce of this city.
at their regular meeting on the 7th instant, passed
a Resolution unanimously, tendering you their
thanks, and those officers associated with you, for
the zeal and judgment exercised by you in pr-par-
ing for service the means within your power, on th(
occasion of the late alarm of piracy on our coast.
It gives us much pleasure to transmit the same tc
you, and through you to Capt. Sniingham, Capt
Perry, and Lieut. Sands, who so promptly co-ope-
rated with you on that occasion.


Respectfully your obedient servant,
ROBERT LENOX, President.

THE ANCIENT SPLENDOR OF ALEXANDRIA.
In describingAlexandria a few evenings since,Mr
Buckingham observed, that unlike most of the cities
of the world, ancient and modern, it had the ad-
vantage of being built on a preconceived plan, ex
tending 15 miles along the coast; its form is that o
a bow readybent for use,and the principal street run
ning from the sea, represents the arrow about t(
leave the hand of the archer. The length of thii
street is five miles, and its breadth proportional
being 1,000 feet. This harmony is preserved in al
I the works of the ancients; whether it be the votive
altar or the colossal temple, or the stately avenue
there is ever the same beautiful uniformity. The]
, possessed a great advantage over us, inasmuch a
their magnificent works of art were constructed a
the national expense, and they could command
therefore, an unlimited area of space, boundless
e wealth, and, to crown all, arbitrary and despoti
power. In modern contracts, the question asked
is not how it may be done best, but cheapest, ant
t competition helps to make economy the order c

NEW YORK, Nov. 11, 1837.
To Robert Lenox, Esq., President of the Chamber
of Commerce.
Sir : I have been honored with a comniunica-
tion from you as Vice-President of the Chamber of
Commerce of the city of New York, informing me
that the Chamber, at the regular meeting on the
7th instant, passed a Resolution, unanimously
tendering you (to myself) their thank-, and those
officers associated with you, (me,) for the zeal and
judgment exercised in preparing for service the
means within my power, on the occasion of the late
alarm of piracy on our coast," and asking of me to
trans nit the same to Capt. Stringham, Capt. Perry,
and Lieut. Sands, who so promptly co-operated
with me on that occasion.
I have, in conformity with your request, trans-
mitted to those gentlemen this flittering evidence
of respect on the part of the Chamber of Com-
merce, and am requested by them, as I do for my-
self, to offer to the Chamber, through you as its
President, our sincere regards for this voluntary
tribute of respect on their part, and to assure them
that the highest reward the officers of ourt Navy
can receive, is the favorable and respectful opin-
ions of the citizens of our Government.
I am, Sir, with great respect, your most obedient
servant, (Signed) CH. G. RIDGELY.

I From the .National Gazette.]
By the arrival of the brig Finance, from Port au
Prince, the National Enquirer has received Haytian
papers and letters from which it appears there are
apprehensions of difficulties between Hayti and
France. President Boyer had issued, on the 22d
October, a proclamation about sundry unsatisfacto-
ry negotiations with France. It concludes thus, in
the translation with which we have been favored :
Does the commissioner whose approaching arri-
val is announced, come in a spirit of reconciliation,
to settle the propositions which we have made to
his government ?
If such is his mission, he will find in the Haytien
Government the sincere desire ofconforming to any
possible arrangements, which must, above all, be
compatible with the national honor.
If, on the contrary, as wide-spread rumor ap-
pears to render probable he comes surrounded with
the accoutrements of war, with the design of impo-

OPENING OF THE NEW YORK, PROVIDENCE AND
BOSTON RAII.ROAD.-Unable to join in this inter-
erting scene ourselves, we avail ourselves of the
following brief description furnished by a gentle-
man who was of the party from this city, and who
will accept our thanks for the favor. The passage
through the Sound was exceedingly pleasant, the
civilities extended by the company and by the citi
zens of Stonington, Providence, and the vilil.ge:
along the railroad route, rendered the excursion de-
lightful, and the gentleman to whose kindness we
are indebted for the particulars, is warm in his en-
comiums on the new Hotel at Stonington. lHe sayw
too much cannot be said in favor of that fine establish
ment. We congratulate the company and the citi
zens on the route through which this line of comr
munication passes, on the completion of this mos
important work.-[Gazette.]
Excursion to Stonington on the opening of tie ..Neu
York, Providence and Boston Railroad.-About onc
hundred guests of the company left the city o0
Thursday evening in the splendid steamer Narra-
gansett, Captain Thayer, among whom we notice
Gov. Edwards, of Conn., Captains Perry, Kearney
and Sloat and Lieut. Gedney, of the U. S. Navy
Alderman M. C. Paterson, Hon. C. L. Livingston
Messrs. Andnrews and Lewis, of Philadelphia. WV
landed at Stonington about 7 in the morning under
a salute, ringing of bells, &c., formed procession
preceded by a fine band, (taken from the city,) ant
proceeded to the very extensive and elegant hote
erected by the Company. Here the guests break-
fasted, and at 9 o'clock left Stonington in two train
(16 cars and 2 locomotives) for Providence. WV

ADVERTISEMENTS EXTRAORDINARY.-The follow-
ing advertisements appear in a Western paper:
To the Public.-I the undersigned, declare hav-
ing given my consent to Mr. Francois Vallet, for his
union with my daughter, Melanie Young, and that
she herself had given him her faith, but that by her
having received some bad advice, she has changed
her notions and refused the hand of Mr. Valley
without any legitimate cause. It is for this reason
that I submit this notice to the public, as a repara-
tion for any mischief that mitht happen to Mr. Val-
let,and to let. him know that I regret very much the
alliance did not take place. JAMES YOUNG.
Bayou Mallet, Sept. 18&h 1837.
There can be no dependence put in the marks of
affectionate love, that may hereafter be shown to
any one by Mibs Melanie Young, because she has
swore love to me more than one thousand timers
in a month, but as the time for her to unite herself
with me approached, she recalled all her promises,
and would not realize them. I give this notice to
the public, so as to keep in future any honest man
from being duped by the perfidy of Miss Melanie
Young. FRANCOIS VALLEY.
Point Noire, 18th Sept. 1837.
ITEM S.
LONG ISLAND RAILROAD.-The decision of Chief
Justice Nelson, of the Supreme Court, in the case
of the Election for Directors of this Company in
June last, has been received. The Election-is set
aside, on several grounds of illegal proceeding on
the part of the old Directors.-[Evening Star.]
A premium of $200 is offered by the commission-
ers for erecting a Custom House at Boston, for the
best architectural plan, and another of $100 for the
second best plan : to be submitted by the 1st Janu-
ary next.
FRIGHTFUL MORTALITY.-A letter from the
Captain of the ship Nestor, hence at New Orleans,
states that of 212 passengers who went out in that
ship, 162 died previous to October 4th, chiefly of
Yellow Fever, and that on the 19th ONLY TEN out
qf the whole number SURVIVED. Thnt Nestor left
New York on the 23d of August.--Jour. Com.]
The Richmond Whig states that the 6 per cent.
Stock ($50,000) sold for the use of the Richmond
and Petersburg Railroad Company, commanded a
premium of two and three-fourths.
The bridge which the Company is throwing
across the James River is a most imposing struc-
ture, and will form a curious ornament of the city.
It springs from the hill on the Manchester side, at
an elevation of 80 feet, and will extend across the
river to the opposite side, about 1200 yards from
one abutment to another. It rests upon lattice-
work-reposing on granite piers in the bed of the
river.
DUELr.--W have heard that an affair of this cha-
racter, which has been for some time in agitation
between Mr. Dromgoole of Congress, and Mr.
Dugger of Brunswick County, Va. was decided a
few days since about six miles from Gaston, N. C.
Mr. Dugger received the ball of his antagonist in
his side, about three inches beneath the arm-pit.
He is said to have been alive the next morning af-
ter the meeting, which, it seems, took place in the
afternoon.-- Petersburg (Va.) Intel.J
NEW CHARLESTON PACKET.-A remarkably fine
vessel arrived here yesterday from an E stern port,
where she was built, which is intended to form one
of the Conmercial Line of Charleston Packets.-
She is called the Perry, is to be commanded by
Capt. Hamilton, late of the ship Saluda, and now
lies at the foot of Maiden lane.--[Courier.]
TRENTON RACES.-On Wednesday next the
races will commence over the E igle Course. Pre-
parations are making for an unusual brilliant meet-
ing. We are authorised to state that the stables of
Cil. Wm. R. Johnson, Col. J. M. Selden, Col. W.
Wynn, Capt. Stockton, Gen. Irvine, Mr. Kendal,
Mr. Joseph H. Van Mater, Mr. Laird, and of
several others, are now at the, course, and that the
stables of Mr. Stevens are hourly expected.
For the four mile race there will probably be Pic-
ton,j Boston, Mingo, Lady Clifden, Fanny Wyatt,
and Camsidel.
An accident of a very singular and distressing
nature occurred in this city on Tuesday morning
last. Mr. Joel Hall, a very industrious and sober
maui, while carting a load of wood, placed his little
child, about four years of age, in the back part of
the cart behind the wood. After arriving at the
place where it was to be delivered, he met with an
acquaintance, and engaging in conversation, cap-
sized the wood upon the child, entirely forgetting
that he had placed it in such a dangerous situation
The child was so much injured as to occasion its
death in a few minutes after it was conveyed home.
-[Pennsylvanian.]
ACCIDENT.-A drunken fellow who had beer
discharged from the steamer Massachusetts'or
Thursday, but who was permitted to remain or
bonrd until her return to Providence, fell overboart
in the Sound on Thursday night, and was lost. H(
was sitting in the window of the boiler room, for-
Sward of the wheel, conversing with the fireman wh(
was employed in feeding the fire at the time he i;
supposed to have fallen overboard. Several minute;
elapsed before he was missed, and as he mus
have fallen immediately under the wheel, it war
deemed a hopeless task to attempt to recover him

The following lines, by Mrs. Opie, are from the
English Amulet, or Christian and Literary Re-
membrancer:" ..
A LAMENT.
There was an eye whose partial glance
Could ne'er my numerous failings see ;
There was an ear that still untired
Could listen to kind praise of me.
There was a heart Time only made
For me with fonder feelings burn ;
And which, whenever, alas, I roved,
Still longed and pined for my return.
There was a lip which always breathed
E'en short farewells with tones of sadness;
There was a voice whose eager sound
My.welcome spoke with heartfelt gladness.
: There was a mind, whose vigorous powers
On mine its fostering influence threw ;,
And called my humble talents forth,
Till thence its dearest joys it drew.
There was a love that oft for me
With anxiousfear. would overflow;
And wept and prayed for me, and sought
From future ills to guard-but now
That eye is closed, and deaf that ear,
That lip and voice are mute for ever !
And cold that heart of faithful love,
Which death alone from mine could sever !
And lost to me that ardent mind,
Which loved my varied tasks to see;
And, Oh of all the praise I gained,
This was the dearestfar to me !
Now I, unloved, uncheered, aione,
Life's dreary wilderness must tread,
Till He who loyes the broken heart a
In mercy bids me join the dead.
But, Father of the fatherless,'
0 Thou that hear'st the orphan's cry,
And 'dwellest with the contrite heart,'
As well as in' Thy place on high'-
0 Lord! though like a faded leaf,
That's severed from its parent tree,
I struggle down life's stormy tide,
That awful tide which leads to Thee:-
Still, Lord to thee the voice of praise
Shall spring triumphant from my breast:
Since, though I tread a weary way,
I trust that he I mourn is BLEST .

Some errors having occurred in a former state-

To this we have the pleasure of adding that the
tolls for motive power on the Philadelphia and Co-
lumbia and Portage railroads, under the wise and
economical management of the present active and
vigilant superintendents, Messrs. Mehaffy and
Patton, have exceeded all the expenditures for mo-
iive and stationary power, about $30,000. The ex-
cess on the Philadelphia and Columbia road is about
$20,000, and that on the Portage road about $10,-
000.
We also take pleasure in being able to state that
the tolls on the Columbia and Philadelphia and
Portage railroads will, the present year, nett 5 per
cent. upon the amount expended In their construc-
tion, notwithstanding the immense sums of money
squandered by incompetent or dishonest engineers,
and bestowed upon personal and political favorites.
The same may be said of the main line of canal
from Columbia to Pittsburg, and of the Delaware
division. These, the present ye r, will each pay
about 5 per cent. upon their original cost.
This change in the revenue of the State is gratify-
ing. It gives assurance that under the system of
reform and economy, the immense state debt, which
had been piled upon the people, and for which the
farmers and mechanics were taxed, will now become
a source of revenue, after paying the annual inter-
est.

BANKS OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK.-A com-
parison of the monthly return of the banks in this
State, for the lst of November, (which we publish
to-day,) with preceding reports, will show the fol-
lowing results:


arises from a too generous confidence in those to
whom they have onee given their affections.-
What a lesson to those who abuse power What
a warning to those who preach and practise the in-
famous doctrine of the spoils !
It is the work, I rejoice to repeat, not of party,
but of the People. They have done it. Let them
have the honor-as they certainly will have the
profit.
But what say the leaders of the fallen host ? It
is all a conspiracy of banks, bank officers, bank
stockholders. They have carried the day by di-
rect corruption, or by a base desire to find a
refuge in the power of the Whigs, and in a coali.
tion for the protection of their odious monopolies.
The character of this statement is a fresh evi-
dence of the respect of these men for the intelligence
of the people, and, moreover, for their moral worth.
It is doubtless true that there are persons who were
influenced by fears of a sordid character, but the
prevailing apprehension was not for property-it
was for the rights upon which property is founded,
and the securities by which it is protected.
Let me now inquire what the occasion demands
of those who are opposed to Van Buren Loco Foco-
ism ?
It is not necessary te go into details, All we
have to do is to live up to the teachings of this great
event. Let us not forget that power and office are
sacred trusts held solely for the good of the people
-that it is an infamous perversion to make them
the spoils of party.
In regard to the Banks, it must be understood
that they have no favors to expect-but that they
shall have justice. Moreover, we must bear in
mind that the great end in view is the public good
-that the great change which we require must not
be a forced and violent one.
In defiance of taunts and clamor, let us steadily
keep in mind these great objects-justice, and the
Public good. We will not be deterred from fuil-

IlISH ADOPTED CITIZENS.
We are assured that a considerable portion of
our Irish adopted citizens, who heretofore had voted
the Jackson ticket, have, at the late election, come
over to the Whig side. They are fully convinced
hat they have been duped by the party, and that the
present distress which they experience, in common
with their native fellow citizens, is wholly owing to
the mismanagement of the government. Under
this conviction, they are determined in future to
support the Whig cause. It is, therefore, no more
than justice to give them due credit for the aid they
have already given in producing the triumphant
victory just achieved, as well as their intention to
pursue the same course in future.
FOURTH WARD.

THE ELECTION OF 1837 IN THE STATE OF
NEW YORK.
This is not a mere change of outs and ins-a
success of a party in a contested election. It is a
great epoch in the history of the Republic. It is a
monument of the saving power inherent in free in-
stitutions.
It may be of use to gather up, and to state in a
succinct form, some of the great truths which this
event teaches. I shall inquire, first, what cause
have produced this result-second, what course of
duty or action it points out to those who now
wield the power of the State.
First. We have seen as the work of three days,
without confusAioorrdisorder,and in perfect peace
and quiet, a transfer of the whole power of the
State-for such it must be regarded. Every Whig
anticipated good. All felt that great principles
were at work which must produce a salutary result.
-But where is the sage or the seer who will not con-
tess that the powers which were in motion, were
more mighty and irresistible than he had supposed.
No one who studies the nature of these princi.
ples can fail to perceive, that if their motion resem-
bles a tornado, it is only in its power, and not in its
duration or extent; and that the tide which is now
in motion must sweep to the Rocky Rountains.
Let us not regard all this with the narrow vision
of mere partizins. This movement must not be
characterized as the work of a party. It is the
rising of the People. It is a glorious expression of
the true sovereignty of the people. I unite under
that great and honored, but most abused name, not
this or that class or clique only, but all classes, and
all as having equal rights, those who possess pro-
perty, and those who do not, those who live by the
work of their hands, or that of their minds, or by
both-in short, the whole people-not those bands
of selfish politicians who usurp their name and oc-
cupy their place.
The mind of this mighty mass has been roused.
We now see what comes from such collision, when
the peoptecome out instead of leaving politics to
trained, factioua, self-seeking partizans and hire-
lings. There has been no coalition of party lead-
ers, or parties, except among the Loco-focos
proper and the Tammany men in general-or the
Loco-focos in the first degree, and the Loco-focos
in the second degree.' On our side it is not pre-
tended that there has been anything resembling
party-coalition. It being indisputable that such is
the nature of this movement, can any rational man
doubt as to what has produced it 7
Experiment after experiment has been made,
first by Gen. Jackson and then by Van Buren, his
instigators, and services, upon the prosperity and
business of the country, until all patience is exhaust-
ed. In addition to all this, we had within this
State a band of desperate adventurers, who, while
they stood alone, were of little account; but when
they acquired the mastery of the Van Buren party,
and had in fact become identified with their chief,
the friends oforder, of law, of virtuous freedom,
felt, and were every where roused as they felt, and
saw, that we were threatened with universal inse-
curity of property, and with the overthrow of what
our fathers had bled to establish.
Such were .he causes, and such there-action,
which led this great and glqrious riQmph. Long
will irte birore we shall rime 'o an adequate con-
ceptior, of tJe magnitude of this triumphant rindi.
cation ,q republican Institutions. This election
has don&jl! that was necessary, and much more
than wa ,cessary, to confirm the'timid in that first
article of our political faith, without which all other
articles are unhvailing,--faith in the People, in their
virtue and their intelligence. In all future times, tihe
patriot who looks back to this period will learn that
the republic is never to be despaired of-that even
the longest adherence of the people to those who
abuse power has its basis in their virtues-that it


gors of a dungeon, although such was the wish of
his Imperial Majesty. The Emperor by no means
considered this act as a grant of pardon, but as a
mere commutation of punishment on such condi-
tions, as from their civil results render it almost as
severe as imprisonment itself. It is a fact, that no
promise was either asked or given when the Italian
exiles accepted these terms of banishment. They
only submitted to the condition of being again im-
mured in the dungeons of Spielberg, in case of
.heir being arrested in Europe by the Austrian
authorities.
Having long since, and for ever, withdrawn my-
self from allfconnection with political affairs, I have
only determined to take up my pen in order to re-
move the unfavorable impression which certain
articles may have left on the mind of the public.-
I have thought it a duty towards my fellow exiles,
and particularly towards Confalonieri, of whose
friendship and esteem I am justly proud.
Believe me, dear sir, with the greatest esteem,
your ob'L serv't, L. TINELL.

CROTON WATER WoRKs.-GOn Friday last we
made a visit to tie Croton Water Works, and
passed along the line north of this place, to its junc-
tion with the Croton. The contract tor building
the dam has been taken ; much of the foundation
will be built this fall, and the materials collected
during the winter for its completion the next sea-
son. Several sections that we visited are already
far advanced, and parts of some entirely completed,
with the exception of the outside embankment.
Several extensive tunnels are now under way, in
some of which the blasters are already nearly two
hundred feet beyond day-light.
It is surprising to observe how beauty and soli-
dity are blended in the construction of this stupen.
dous work. Having had much acquaintance with
the business of brick, and stone masonry, we can
say that better or finer cannot be found in the
United States, than that now being done on the
Croton works.
The contractors, like their overseers, agents and
master-workmen, are all men experienced in the
business, and there appears to be a rivalry among
them, to see which shall excel in the perfection of
his work.

ONE OF THE PEOPLE.

COUNT CONFALONIERI.-We publish with plea-
sure the following letter relative to this distinguish-
ed exile.
New York, Nov. 10th, 1837.
To the Editor of the ..N Y. Amnerican :
Some of the French ministerial papers have as-
serted, in justification of the expulsion of Count
Confalonieri, that the punishment to which that
illustrious exile had been condemned by Austria,
was twice commuted at the urgent solicitation,
first of the DukeofOrleans, and afterwards, of the
King of the French. They have also endeavored
to make it appear, that the prisoners liberated from
Spielberg, and sent out to America, pledged their
word of honor never to return to Europe. How far
the ministerial press deserves the confidence of the
public, the following facts will, it is hoped, serve
to show.
That the Duke of Orleans interposed his good
offices in favor of Count Confalonieri, at the time
of his condemnation to death in 1823, and that the
King of the French, on the accession of Ferdinand
1st to the throne of his ancestors, employed the
most earnest solicitations to obtain his liberation
from the new Emperor, were certainly striking in-
stances of generosity on the part of L ouis Philippe,
and deserve to be acknowledged as such. But
that the entreaties of the Duke of Orleans were
listened to by Francis I., and that the solicitations
of the King of the French obtained any thing from
Ferdinand I., may well be doubted by all who
may become acquainted with the following circum-
stances.
Every one who takes an interest in the fate of
Confalonieri, and of his companions in misfortune,
must have already read in Maroncelli's additions
to Silvio Pellico's book, ths heart-rending scene
which took place in the imperial apartments at
Vienna, between the Empress, wife of Francis I.,
and the noble and deservedly lamented Countess
Confalonieri. The Emperor had obstinately re-
sisted the entreaties of his august consort in behalf
of the illustrious prisoner, the death-warrant had
already received the royal signature, and had been
despatched by post to Milan, with the order of exe-
cution. The Countess Confalonieri, a prey to the
severest anguish, hastened with all possible speed
from Vienna to Milan. Her heart foreboding
death, and the scaffold before her eyes, she almost
despaired of arriving in time to bid a last adieu
to her unhappy Lord. Meanwhile, the conscience
of Francis I., which, to his praise be it spoken, had
never been stained with the bloQd of his subjects.,
was disturbed at the thought of the execution of
Confalonieri. At midnight the Emperor sent for
the Aulic Councillor Martini,and enjoined him to re-
vise the proceedings in the trial of Confalonieri, and
to make his report the following morning. At six
in the morning the report of the Aulic Councillor
was of such a nature as to raise doubts with regard
io the justice of the sentence of death pronounced
against Cont'falonieri. An express was instantly
despatched from his Majesty's private cabinet with
orders to ride at full speed, and to use every possi-
ble exertion to anticipate the regular post, gone out
twelve hours before. It was the will of Providence,
by whose finger the noble Couni's death-war.
rant had been blotted out, that the courier should
reach Milan and present himself before the tribunal
two hours previous to the arrival of the regular
post: he brought the commutation of the sentence
of death for perpetual imprisonment.
Ferdinand I., while only prince imperial, had at
different times taken active measures to procure
some relief for the prisoners of spielberg. On the
4ih nf March, 135i, trwo days after his father's
deati, and before the news of that event had reached
Paris, one of the first acts of his reign was the
Sovereign resolution by which he offered to such of
the prisoners of state, as were condemned to more
than five years imprisonment, the commutation
of their sentence for perpetual banishment to
America.
Important considerations, which it is not to the
present purpose to state,; prevented the Emperor
from granting a full amnesty, and restoring to their
families subjects who had so long endured the ri-

Extract from an article in the October No. of the
Southern Agriculturist:
COLUMBIA, S. C., Sept. 9, 1837.
By way of encouragement, I must tell you that I
have this very day terminated my vintage, except
a few odd grapes, which I shall gather next week,
which will add 50 or 60 gallons of wine to that al-
ready made. I made at my farm 750 gallons, and
in my garden 528 gallons. This last is a most enor-
mous crop ; for the vines that produced that quan-
tity are on one sixth part of an acre. This is, there-
fore, at the rate of 3168 gallons to the acre, which
is perhaps a greater crop than ever was made any
where else; at least I never have seen any account
of any one more than 2000 gallons, and that is ex-
ceedingly rare. I have, moreover, reasons to believe
that the wine will be of a very good quality. The
produce of two of the vines in my garden is so great,
that if I had not the most respectable witnesses of
the fact, I should hesitate to name it. They pro-
duced one hundred and thirty gallons of wine, and
even more. Very respectfully,
N. HERBEMONT.

MELANCHOLY SHIPWRECK AND Loss Or LIFE.-

GREAT PRODUCT OF WINE.-Mr.Munroe: The
fallowing, extracted from the Southern Agricultur-
ist for October, ought to be generally disseminated.
It shows what can be done, and may induce others
to try to do likewise. Mr. Herbemont has been
making wine for many years--i15 or 20 probably;
and the writer of this has frequently had the plea-
sure of tasting itsgood qualities. I will not say it


As the steamboat Daniel Webster was coming
into the river about I o'clock this morning, a young,
man, a steerage passenger, frightened at imagined
danger, leaped upon the end of the western pier.
He ran up the pier, over which the waves were
breaking, till he came to the gap, which he could
not cross. He shouted for help. As it was exces-
sively daik, and the wind blowing a gale, it was
wome time before the boat reached the part of the
pier to which the poor fellow had sprung for safety.
He was not there, having been washed off no
doubt by the waves.-[Ib.]

looking at him. He had a handkerchief tied to a
board, which he waved to them: he also hailed
her, but to no purpose. She was so near that
ho could see the hoops on the buckets a man
was painting on the round house. He took her
to be a British bark, with little or no cargo in.
Saw nothing on the 6th ; that day he found a lit-:
tie hay which he ate, it being the first food since
1Ie was on the wreck. On the 7th day, at 2 P.f
M. was taken off by Capt. Davis, who treated K0"'

The American Fire Insurance Company has de- 1
dared a dividend of six per cent. for the last six,
months, payable on and after the 1st day of Decem-
ber next.
BusiNEss ON THE RlvER.-The piers on the river
occupied by the Transportation Lines are now ex-
cessiv ly crowded, so much so that it is almost in,-
possible to pass. Hay, Flour, and all the necessa-
ries of life, are now hurried down the river. Emi-
grants and others are hastening up. There are the
most rapid preparations for winter. Every touch
of a cid day quickens the springs of life amazingly.
The snow of Tuesday reminded all of the necessi-
ty of preparing forthwith for ice and cold. The
Coal Dealers are active. Potatoes are in good de-
mand. Now, in fact, is the time to hasten forward
every thing with the greatest speed.--[Express.]
FiRa.-Between 10 and 11 o'clock last night a
fire was discovered in the lower part of the 2- s '
wood building, No. 195 Greenwich street, occupied
by W. & R. Cunningham as a stove and tin store,
which by the prompt arrival of the engines was ex-
tinguished without doing any material damage.-

MORTALITY AT NATCHE.--The Mississippi
Free Trader contains an account of the ravages of
yellow fever in Natchez, with the number of deaths
is the months of September and October. Those
in the former month amounted to 76, in the latter to
168-total for the two months, 244. From the 27th
to the 30th of October, 27 deaths resulted from it.
Advices from New Orleans to the 8,h inst. state
that the Yellow Fever was making dreadful rava-
ges at Opelousas.
New ORLEANS, Nov. 8th.
The planters along our coasts have been for some
time back, busily engaged in cutting down their
cane-the first cut down is generally preserved for
planting in spring, some sugar has, however, been
made, though the boiling m.iy be said to be now
only properly commencing. Froxthe trials that
have hitherto been made, we understand good cane
yields about a hhd to the acre, but the longer the
cane is without being cut down the better it proves.
In the West Indies where it is 15 months (the first
crop,) sometimes without being cut down, it yields
about four or five times that quantity. The frosts
of winter, however, in this climate, oblige our
planters to cut down their crops without giving the
same length to ripen.-[Lou. Adv.]
ONE, Two, AND THREE DOLLAR NOTES.-W
have always believed that the withdrawal of tLh.
one, two and three dollar notes from circulation,-
order of the Legislature, was the primary cause of
the stoppage of specie payments, and from the
origin of the clamor against this description of bank
issues, we have pronounced it unwise and unsafe,
-[Evening Star.]
The Ann Arbor "Michigan Argus"'contains th4
following caution :
We ate informed by travellers, that bills pur-
porting to be of the Bank of Ann Arbor, are still ii
circulation in some parts of Ohio and New York.
There is no such bank in existence, as the public
has before been apprised. All the editors of news-
papers in the northern States, and in Canada,,
would confer a favor on the community by no-
tieing this."
CLEVELAND, (Ohio) Nov. 7.
SHIPwszcK.-The schooner Utica, as we learn
from yesterday's Advertiser, was driven ashore
about 10 miles west of Presque Isle, on Lake Hu-
ron, on the 25th ult., and became a total wreck.-!
No lives were lost but the passengers and crew
suffered much, being upon the shore48 hours with-
out shelter and exposed to the inclement weather.
The Utica was owned by Mr. C. M. Gildings, of
this city, and was insured, partially at least, at
Oswego.-[ Herald.]

'-Of the fire places for parlors, designed for the com-
bustion of coal,Pierpont's Doric Fire Place and Minerva
Grate, No. 247, is the best."
The American Institute, and the Mechanics' Institute,
of New York, have each awarded the silver medal of their
respective societies, to this superior article.
Extract from a communication in the Commercial Ad-
vertiser of Oct. 21st, 1837:
"Seeing yoir remarks last fall upon the subject of warm-
ing rooms, and your opinion of the Doric you had used, I
purchased one, which was placed in a room 18 by 20 feet.
In this I kept a perpetual fire, and burned less than three
tons of coal in seven months, having a regular warmth,
good ventilation, and greater comfort than I have ever
before experienced from any fire in my house. I have this
fall put two of these into my bed rooms, and my belief is,
that in two years I shall save in fuel the expense of my
Dorics. Signed, S. T."

rT HE STUDY OF BOOK-KEEPING, No. 74 Cedar
street, near Broadway.
During the course ofinstruction,the student has brought
before him more than a hundred different business trans-
actions, each of which is a subject of remark, conversation
and study. The transactions are not unconnected and
improbable, but regularly connected incidents, such as
would be produced by the natural routine of business.
Thus the course of instruction becomes a course ofprac.-
tice, preparing the pupil for almost ary emergency, by
anticipating the difficulties thit belong to the subject.
Years must pass in a mercantile house before the tdiversi
fled business which is introduced to the pupil in weeks,
could come under his notice.
The course also includes various calculations in Mer-
cantile Arithmetic, such as useful cases in Equation of
Payments, Discount and Interest, Insurance, Exchange,
&c. Certificates are given after due attention. Rooms
open day and evening.
Prospectuses vi th terms, &c. may be had at the Rooms.

BOOK-KEEPING,

PENMANSHIP, AND ARITHMETIC
ARE TAUGHT AT
Foster't Establishnment, 183 Broadway,
upon an original and Improved plan, by which a compe-
tent knowledge of these branches may be obtained in one
third of the time usually devoted to that object.
The design of this institution is to furnish YourNG MEN
an opportunity of acquiring, in a speedy and effectual
manner, a free, rapid HAND-wRITING, expertness in
YIGURES, and a practical knowledge of noox-KEEPING.
The course of study comprehends such information as is
indispensable to the man of business, and combines the
advantages of private lessons with the daily routine of the
Well-regulated Counting-house.
BOOK-KEEPING, as applied to retail and wholesale
trade, Is particularly attended to. The principles and
practice of DOUBLE ENTRY, and the most modern
and improved forms of arranging MERCHANTS' AC-
COUNTS, are clearly exemplified.
FOSTER'S SYSTEM OF PENMANSHIP is capable of
speedily and effectually changing the most scrawling and
imperfect hand-writing, and of substituting in its place an
elegant and masterly use of the pen To clerks, with whnm
tie attainment of a superior business-hand Is an object of
the first importance, and to adults, whose penmanship has
been neglected or imperfectly acquired, this system wiii
be found highly useful. It will counteract the most con-
firmed bad habits, and impart, in a very short time, a
BEAUTIFUL, FREE, BUSINESS-LIKE STYLE OF
WRITING.
[From the Evening Gazette.]
The manner in which Bo^K-K~E~ING is frequently
taught, conveys a very imperfect idea of the practice of
merchants. The great difference between theory and
practice--between the study of an art and its application
to practical use-is too well known to need reniirk ; and
we think Mr. Foster's plan possesses advantages worthy
the consideration of all who wish to acquire the forms
and modes of business in a thorough and effectual manner.
[From the Republican.]
We are personally acquainted with Mr. Foster, and
take great pleasure in recommending his establishment to
the notice of our fellow-citizens. We have examined Iris
system in detail, have observed his mode of instruction
in ti are full operation, a re f impressed with the practi-
cability and utility f his plan. It facilitates, beyond all
other methods, the attainment of a free, elegant and rapid
bilsiness-Land. ,

SPECIE PAYMENTS, THE CURRENCY, &c.-In re-
lation to the effect-of the recent political revolution
upon these great interests-upon the credit, and
upon the general industry of the country,-we haz-
arded some remarks yesterday, which it is our pur-
pose to follow up.
Proceeding always upon the assumption, that
duty and interest alike require the earliest practi-
&cable return to specie payments, it would seem that
the only remaining question is as to the period of
doing so. This is mainly a practical question, to
be determined by a view of all the circumstances of
the case, aud of the country, by practical men of
business-than whom, it cannot be too strongly
enforced, there is no class more directly interested
in the restoration and preservation of a sound con-
vertible p iper currency.
We have already said that, in our judgment, the
banks of this city may be in a condition to resume
specie payments early in the Spring-and before
the time expires during which the suspension act
applies to them. In no event that we at present
conceive of, should that act be renewed or prolong.
ed-and the very fact, that on this head public feel-
ing is, as we suppose it to be, unanimous, will add
a strongmotive to the many others that should in-
.fi/ce the banks and the community, to co-operate
with and aid each other in getting back to the spe-
cie basis. But fears are expressed that although
the city banks may be prepared by the time indi-
cated to resume payment, those of the interior of
the State would not be. So far as we can gather
information, these fears are unfounded. The coun-
try banks, for the most part, have funds now in
New York, with which to redeem the mass of their
notes--and when it shall once be settled that the
city banks will, on a given day, pay specie, the
country banks will be compelled,alike by the force of
public opinion and the necessity of the case, tedo
likewise. Hence the importance of fixing in advance
that day, to the end that in the interim all parties,
l'anks,and creditors, and debtors, and the community
generally, may prepare themselves for that event.
But, again, it is said that the foreign exchanges are
against us, and that until gold and silver shall cease
to be articles of export, the banks cannot safely re-
sume. Doubtless this is true-but the best mode
of reducing the foreign exchanges to' the par value,
arid of preventing the exportation of metal, is steadi-
ly to persevere in the diminution of paper loans
and paper circulation, a-nd thus keep down prices,
and restrain new adventures. A pledge from the
banks to resume by a day named, is a pledge to
persevere intheir curtailments-gradual, but con-
stant-and then, by the naturaloperation of trade,
the crops going forward to Europe will furnish an
amount of funds there, that, with a limited market
at home for foreign bills, will certainly turn the ex-
changes in our favor. On the other hand, should
the banks now relax their hands, and instead'of
calling in, increase their loans, the effect would be
to postpone indefinitely the desired return to specie
payments, and to provoke anew the wild spirit of
speculation. Another objection is, that the South-
West is largely indebted to us-that the banks in
that region are;so much exterided that they cannot
resume as soon as we desire to do-and that, if we
precede them; it will have the effect of making the
exchange uponl this place, now unfavorable to them,
still more unfavoaWa; and that our debtors there
would be less able thaitintr, n, iaond _ass wijl-
ing, to make remniittances here, seeing that it could *
'rnly be done at a greatly enhanced premium.
In reply to this objection, it is obvious to say
that the first duty of our banks is to fulfil at any
rate their own obligations; that at no time can a
return from an irredeemable to a redeemable cur-
rcncy be effected, without some sacrifice in some
quarters; and, therefore, even if it were certain that
the apprehension were well founded, that, by rea-
son of our resumption of specie payments, the
South West would be less able or less willing to
pay its debts here, it would still be the paramount
duty of the banks to resume. But it may be well
doubled, whether the consequences here indicated
would in fact flow from such a course on our part.


At first indeed the premium on drafts payable in
New York, would rise by all the difference between
the price of specie and of paper- but then the re-
mrittance would be just so much more valuable here
-and the very fact that, in order to keep up inter-
course with this city at all, a specie standard was I
indispensable, would hasten the period, and stimu-
late the efforts in behalf, of a general resumption
in the South West. The crops now going to mar-
ket would assist in the good work-and these con-
siderations,combined with the daily increasing pres.
sure of public opinion, would force it to a consum-
mation..
Our conclusion, then, is, that not only is it right,
but highly expedient, that the Banks of this city
should be encouraged and required to resume spe-
cie payments early in the spring ; and that a Whig
Legislature should, and will, do nothing that may
tend to postpone so desirable an event.
We had intended to add some remarks on the
question of small notes, but find ourselves circurn-
scribed for space to-day.

THE RESULT IN THE STATE.
The Whig majority in the Empire State is about
TWENTY THOUSAND. The majority for
Van Buren at the lslt election was TWENTY-
EIGHT THOUSAND. The Whig gain in one
year, therefore, is FORTY-EIGHT THOUS-
AND, or nearly one sixth of the entire vote of the
State i
It is undoubtedly true that Silas. Wright, when
in this city, on his return from Washington, left
orders for the instruction" of his Senatorial col-
league. The question now occurs, shall the poi-
soned chalice be commended to his own lips ?" How
truly do '" bloody instructions return to plague the
inventor.!" If Mr. Wright has not a face of brass,
he will blush crimson deep when he reflects upon
this attempt to destroy his colleague And if he
is true to any of his professions, 4e will not wait to
be instructed.: Wkthh ,a majority of twenty thou- ,

GREAT PUBLIC MEETING IN PHILA-
DELPHIA.-NEW YORK TRIUMPH.
One of the greatest public meetings that we ever
remember, was held in this city last evening. The
object was to take measures for celebrating in a
proper and appropriate manner, the glorious
triumph of principle and the people, at the recent
contest in New York. The call was before the
public but a few hours; yet long before the time
d, signated, the Court Room was crowded in every
part; hundreds, nay, thousands, being unable to
press their way into it. It was a glorious turnout
of the freemen of the city and county, worthy alike
ihe cause, the occasion, and the temper of our peo-
ple. All was life, fire and enthusiasm; but it was
the enthusiasm of reason and patriotism, rather than
of passion and bigotry. The speakers were elo-
quent and spirit-stirring in no ordinary degree; but
they nevertheless spoke like American citizens, who
felt that the welfare of their country, the regenera-
tion of the popular mind, were far more important
than any mere party triumph.
The meeting was organized by the appointment
of the following gentlemen as officers:
JOHN SWIFT, Mayor of Philadelphia, President.
Vice Presidents:
First District.
Alderman Wm. F. Hughes,
Dr. David Rutter,
Thomas F. Femington.
Second District.
Fredorick Fraley,
John C. Montgomeiy,
Caleb Cope,
The Hon. Geo. W. Toland.
Third District.
The Hon. Charles Naylor,
Daniel Fitler,
William G. Conbow,
John Conrad,Mayor of the Northern Liberties.
Secretaries.
William P. Hacker,
W. Hart Carr,
Joseph Plankinton,
George B. Hall.
During the absence of the Committee, the meet-
inm was addressed in an eloquent, powerful and
effective speech by the Hon. Charles Naylor. He
adverted in becoming terms to the ereat struggle
which has just taken place in the Emp;re State,
and to the glorious victory there achieved. He
was frequently interrupted by the most enthusiastic
,laudits, and when, turning from New York to
Pennsylvania, he confidently predicted the trium-
phant re-election of the "OLD FARMER"--the
vast concourse present broke in one spontaneous
and long continued burst of applause. The speech
throughout was able and spirit-stirring, and re-
flected the highest credit upon the Representative
of the Third Congressional District. On taking
his seat, the meeting gave him three hearty rounds
of acclamation.
John C. Montgomery, Esq. followed, and was
listened to with the liveliest interest. He detailed
some pleasant anecdotes, aed only gave way when
the resolutions made their appearance. Through
their Chairman, William B. Reed, Esq. they re-
ported the following, which, as will be perceived,
are highly appropriate. They were adopted by
acclamation.
"Resolved, That the citizens of Philadclphia,deep-
ly impressed with the importance of the late strug-
gle in the State of New York, lose no time in tes-
tifying their admiration of the gallantry with which
it was conducted by the friends of sound princi-
ples of government, and the glorious triumph which
has crowned their efforts.
Resolved, That we tender to our friends in New
York, the expression of sincere gratitude for what
they have done, and thank them for the example
they have set the opposition throughout the Union
-never to despair of the Republic-and never to
despair of the efficacy of energy and resolution in
a good cause.
Resolved, That we regard with proud exulta-
tion, the signal defeat which the partisans of abus-
ed power have met in our sister State, and recog-
nize in it the best illustration, that principles of de-
struction to the dearest rights of the citizen, cannot,
in our intelligent country, be made to triumph.
Resolved, That we see in the defeat of Martin
Van Buren in the State of New York, the break-
ing of the magic wand within the magic circle; and
the final judgment of an indignant people on the
corrupt acts of an impotent Executive.
Resolved, That we regard this spontaneous
movement of the people, as indicating their unal-
terable determination to bear no more experiments
on their prosperity, or rights: and hail it as the assu-
rance of the divorce of confidence from abused power.
Resolved, That we commend to the Paesident
and his expunging partisans, the spectacle of the
Black Lines which the Demnoeracy of New York.
ht.,oraw, uvei ar an m rlttni-r pobicy,antd t-heir -
principles, and the sure prognostic, that the "BALL
IS IN MOTION" which must overthrow the ill-secured
fabric of their power.
Resolved, That a Committee of 100 be now ap-
pointed for devising means for celebrating this un-
paralleled victory.
Resolved, That a committee cf "76" be ap-
pointed to proceed to New York on the 22d of this
month, at which time we understand our "Whig"
brethren of that city intend holding a celebration-
said committee to tender to them our unfeigned
thanks for theirglorious exertions in the cause of
Liberty. The officer of this meeting to appoint
said committee."
Mr. Montgomery then finished his remarks;
when, at the unanimous call of the meeting, Mr.
Reed came forward and enchained the attention of


the vast multitude for the space of half an hour in
one ,of the most polished, skilful and admirable
addresses that we ever listened to. His points and
figures were of the happiest description. His allu-
sions to past history and recent events, apt and to
the purpose ; the whole clothed in language at once
chaste, dignified and energetic. He also stepped
aside, to allude to the career of the Chief Magis-
trate of Pennsylvania, and again elicited a thrilling
shout of approbation.
Mr. ThomasConner, a working man of the Third
District, was the next speaker. We have heard
him frequently. He always speaks with energy
and effect; but his effort of last night was far su-
perior for wit, as well as argument, to any we ever
heard from his lips.
Colonel M'Kinney was then called upon, and
responded to the call with some agreeable anec-
dotes and felicitous applications.
Colonel Swift closed the proceedings of the eve-
ning. His remarks were worthy the head and the
near of the chief magistrate of Philadelphia; and
all who know John Swift., know that he has abun-
dance of both. It was fully equal to any of- the
preceding efforts-warm from the heart, and faith-
ful to its fires; full of pith and point; sound, search-
ing and manly.
The meeting throughout was a brilliant and thril-
ling affair. Had our New York friends themselves
been present, they must have been satisfied that we
deeply appreciate the character and effects of their
victory. Ii is a great and glorious triumph, and, as
such, should be heralded to all aftei-times.

[From the Courier and Enquirer of yesterday.l
On Thursday last, we accompanied IMtessrs.
HOFFMAN and CURTIS on an excursion to Boston,
to be present, by invitation, at a meeting of the
WHIGS of that "Cradle of Liberty," in honor ot
the presence there of the Hon. JOHN BELL, of
Tennessee, and Messrs. GRAVES and UNDERWOOD,
of Kentucky, all of the present House of Represen-
tatives. The meeting had been fixed for Friday
evening, in the hope that the gentlemen invited
from this city would bring with them the gratify-
ing intelligence of the success of the Whig cause
here, and thereby add to the enthusiasm which the
occasion, without such extraneous aid, was calcu-
lated to inspire.
We left here on Thursday afternoon, on board
the magnificent steamer Massachusetts, Capt. Corn-
Lnrck --the mno at einn 1 *- hi *L i -. th-


ners to be huhg out from every railroad ear, pro-
claiming the downfall of Toryism, and the utter
prostration of VanBurenism, on the very soil which
nad nourished it, and the restoration of the people
to their long lost rights.
At a quarter before 6, A. M. the boat arrived at
Providence, a distance of two hundred and twelve
miles, but o,% ing to the very short time in which she
had accomplished the trip, the cars of the Boston
and Pi-ovidence Railroad Company were not in
readiness for their departure. Our Captain, how-
ever, was not inactive, and the glorious news of
which he was the bearer prompted all to unprece-
dented exertion. In less than twenty minutes we
were again advancing, and at a few minutes after
eight, three times three from the front of thie .lltas
Office, and all along State street, proclaimed to a
city of Freemen that their long benighted and op-
pressed sister city had burst the shackles which
bound her to the car of the demagogue, and taken
a stand among the regenerated portions of our com-
mon country. Soon the loud mouthed cannon-
old fashioned long eighteens-thundered forth the
note of triumph ; and it was not only reverberated
from Breed's and Bunker's Hill, but every Patriot
heart responded to the grateful music, and every
little urchin in the city forgot his school and his
play to unite in the vivifyirg shouts of Huzza for
New York"-" Huzza for the Whigs"-" Huzza
for the Constitution"-" The country is safe !" All
business was apparently suspended, and the whole
population were occupied in the most enthusiastic
congratulations, and the most animated expressions
of happiness, in the conviction that by the triumph
of the Whigs here, in the very hotbed of Toryism,
the reign of terror was past, and the golden days of
our commercial and national prosperity about to be
restored.
But we will not dwell upon this grateful theme-
grateful to everyfreeman in the United States, but
especially grateful to the hearts of every New
Yorker. At six o'clock we found ourself in
FANEUIL HALL, surrounded by at least SEVEN
THOUSAND freemen-descendants of those who first
gave motion to that Ball of Revolution which se-
vered from the parent country the fairest portion of
her wide domain, and from the Queen of the ocean,
and the Mistress of the world, the brightest jewel
of her crown. FANEUIL HALL! What sensations,
what reflections, whut emotions does, not its very
name call forth No Patriot, no American, alive to
the honor and the historical events of his country,
could find himself there on such an occasion, with-
out f eling that he was indeed on hallowed ground;
that he was surrounded by the very walls dedicated
and consecrated to the patriotism of 1776 ; that he
was in the Temple of Liberty itself-in the very
holy of holies of the cradle of the Revolution ; and
that the shades of WARREN and HANCOCK, and
their glorious compeers, were hovering over and
about it. And when we saw DANIEL WEBSTER
take the chair, and heard the three times three"
with which he was greeted-when we saw who it
was that sent forth those never-to-be-forgotten
shouts of respect, of confidence, and of hope--we
could not but feel that the Spirits of the Mighty
Dead had not only been hovering about this sacred
edifice, but smiling upon and approving the patriotic ,
purposes of the assembled multitude.
The meeting was opened by an address from the
Chairman. We have long been familiar with Mr.
Webster's manner in the Senate and at public as-
semblages of his fellow-citizens, but never have we
seen him so excited-never have we heard him so
eloquent-never was he so really great as on this
occasion, when he briefly reviewed the sufferings
under which the country was laboring from mis-
government, pointed out the duty of every citizen
to come to the rescue-descanted upon the glorious
triumph in this city and State, and the incalculably
great and certain benefits to result from it. Mir.
Bell of Tennessee, and Mr. Graves and Mr, Under-
wood of Kentucky, then addressed the meeting in
able and animated addresses, which were received
with loud and long continued applause; but when
Mr. Hoffman was announced-one of the victors in
the late struggle, fresh from the scene of conflict-
and took his place upon the stand, all the sympathies
of Bostonians for New Yorkers--of Freemen for
their oppressed brethren-and all the long-smother-
ed feelings of triumph and of congratulation at once
burst forth, and even the walls of that consecrated
temple appeared to re-echo the loud hozinnas of
that thrilling plaudit from the most excited and ex-
citable audience that we ever saw congregated to-
gethcr. His speech was worthy of New York-
worthy of himself-and when Mr. Curtis followed,
the same grateful and affectionate reception await-
ed him.
This great meeting-the greatest, the most ex-
cited, and the most enthusiastic that has ever con-
vened in our country-adjourned at half past nine
o'clock, and at ten P. M. two hundred and twenty 4
of the most distinguished freemen of Boston, and
Iheir gtl-asts frsmn ..*< ..r XWV...and Mia tiyt Byu e
down to a splendid supper served at the Tremont,
in the best style of that justly celebrated hotel.
Alderman Paterson of this city, who had been pre-
vented from coming in time for the opening of the
great Meeting at Faneuil Hall. now swelled the
number of the guests from New Yoik to four; and
never were four of our citizens more highly ho-
nored, and never had any of them greater cause to
be proud of their fellow-citizens, and of their efforts
in support of the great cause of the Constitution.
Mr. Webster again presided, assisted by the Go-
vernor of the State, the Hen. Edward Everett;
and now we had the pleasure of witnessing tne
versatility of talent, as well as the universal know-
ledge and research, of this truly great man. Here,
presiding at the social board, he was as great as
when acting as Chairman of one of the greatest


meetings of Freemen that the New World ever
witnessed. Every toast he introduced was pre-
faced with remarks, nay, speeches, each of which
would have done him honor in the Senate. Of
course the toasts all had reference to the spirit-
stirring events of the day ; and never did the Free-
men of this city and State, the Merchants of the
United States, the Great West, the Whig Press,
receive such just encomiums. All these and many
other toasts were drank, and in every instance the
subject received at his hands additional importance
from the manner in which he treated it. His his-
tory of the Commerce of the country-of the early
connexion of the Government with, and dependence
upon, it-of the importance of our Merchants to the
prosperity of the country-of their enterprise and
patriotism-were worthy of the man, and could
have emanated from no other source.
Among the toasts drank was the Common-
wealth of Massachusetts," to which Governor Ev-
erett replied in a manner which has rarely
been equalled. His manner and his matter was
beyond all description most felicitons; and his pic-
ture of the consequence of the Whig triumph in
this State was most cheering and just. Among
other beautiful and appropriate figures which he
used complimentary to our State, he likened it to a
magnificent three-decker, that, after laying long dis- i
masted at the docks, had suddenly broke from her
fasts, put forth her whole panoply of glorious arms,
and bellying sails, and with ports uplifted and guns
run out, and matches lighted, was bearing down;in
sweeping majesty upon what-"- a long, low, black,
raking piratical schooner,"-the rest of the figure
was lost amid the instant and enthusiastic cheer-
ings of the company.
Our City and State--our citizens and our vie-
tory-were duly honored, and those who repre-
sented her replied to the high compliments so pro-
perly bestowed upon us. At a late hour the party
dispersed,-and as New York, her sufferings, her
struggle, and her success,were the first words upon
the lips of all, so were they the last. The follow-
ing paragraph from the Boston Mercantile Adver-
tiser," of Saturday evening, tells the sequel:
"' itZI Messrs. HOFFMAN, CURTIS, and WEBB,
"'were attended to the cars at noon this day, by a
"large committee of the Whigs, and left town for
"their re-exalted and powerful city. Henceforth

CONVENTION OF MERCHANTS.
"Hang on the pot to make the swings,
For we're going to haye grand doings."--[Dido.]
Yes! we'le going to have grand doings! Mer-
chant McDuffie and Merchant Hayne of South
Carolina, and Merchant Cumming and Merchant
Jones of Georjia,with some dozen other merchants,
bold esquites every one," have met, and reported,
and resolved, that the great staple States shall ma-
nage their business in their own way-grow their
own corn, pound their own hominy, breed their
own porkers, steeds, asses, and mules-build their
own ships, and rear up, from the first seeding, Cad-
mus like, shipwrights and sailors-export their own
cotton, and import, for their own consumption, all
the fine things and good things of foreign lands ;-
that they will have no banks but their own banks,
no monopolies but their own monopolies ;-that
they will have snug incorporated companies of their
own contrivance, neither broader nor longer than
ihey approve, and from which the "democracy of
numbers" shall be excluded ; and-and-that
their banks, like Monster Biddle's Bank, shall have
bank agencies in Europe, and establish a credit
with foreign banks; and-but they have resolved
on such a grand scale, that no one period can be
lengthened out to enumerate all their resolves.
Now, it is easy to resolve all tnis, and a great
deal more. General Merchant McDuffie and Gen-
eral Merchant Hayne have been resolving about
staples, and tariffs, and tribute, these dozen years.
And all the while the staple cultivators kept cult;-
vating tht cotton staple, and neglected the growing
of porkers and other four-booted animals. In a
most unpatriotic spirit they have persevered in the
notion th:' the North and the South, and the East
and the West, were one family, whose different in-
terests should be, and most conveniently could be,
blended in:o one common interest of general advan-
taRe to ihe whole. They have preferred to let the
West send them bread and bacon-to let the North
and the East do their exporting, importing and
manufacturing-that is, to act for them the part of
hewers of wood and carriers of water, whilst they
themselves stuck to their staple cultivation, which
they well understood, rather than adventure upon
divers cultivations, of which they understood noth-
ing. In pursuing this course they have got rich a
little too fast, and these rapidly accumulated riches
have a little turned their heads, whereby they have
been thrown back a few steps. But they are still bet-
ter.advanced than the daily drudge that feeds porkers
or treads out wheat in the West, or the toiling
manufacturer, of twelve or fourteen hours' daily
labor, of the East.
Ail this the real staple cultivators understand,
and there is nothing in the report and resolves to
move them to betake themselves to new directions
of their capital and industry. They contain noth-
ing new, except the conceit of getting an Enropean
agency, like Monster Biddle. All the rest is but a
hash of the cold meats of former feasts, when these
same merchant-cooks served up dishes of non-inter-
course with the Western States, and of nullification
with the Union ;-which dishes, when fresh and
warm, were not of the most savory odor or deli-
cious taste ; and, moreover, were apt, when eaten,
to occasion vye tigos and cholics to the consumers.-
Wherefore it may well be concluded, that the great
harsh report and resolves just now cooked up and
served up to theStapleStales must meet the fate ofall
the attempts of the English kitchen scullions of bon-
nie King James, to produce the real national Scotch
dish. At every new effort, until Richard Mono-
pleies got among them,the king exclaimed, when the
dish cai-e to the table, its itae a singet sheep's
head yet." So will the great body of the staple cul-
tivators instinctively discern, that this is no national
dish, but one prepared for the scullion purpose of
recommending the cooks.
But, to be serious, for it seems unseemly to treat
with levity the earnest movements of really talent-
ed men, and yet their doings are.not suited for
grave discussion ;-soberly and respectfully then,
what is proposed by this Convention, that the well-
informed merchant, the national patltot, or the
practical cultivator can approve? The misdirected
efforts of the National Administration to obtain
control over the mercantile business, the mercantile
capital, and the mercantile men of the country,
have involved all in deep embarrassments. Mea-
sures taken to secure predominance have only pro-
duced destruction ; and these conventionists clutch
at the occasion, as giving them an opportunity to
build up a separate advantage for themselves Not
content to be cherished as the great staple produc-
ers of the country, they would grasp, also, the di-
rection and profits of its foreign commerce. They
avow a gnawing rivalry, that their fellow-citizens,
in other parts of the Union, partake of the profits
of their productions, by employing labor and
capital in their service. rCan men, avowing
such feelings, ever become successful merchants?
c-arr tney'tJa-iA the coitidence of those who
are deeply conversant wim every spring and mo-
tive of action that enters i o the great concerns o'
commerce? Can faith a trust grow up, where
the soil, in its principal ] ponent, is arid selfish-
ness ? Gan that immens] body of men, in Europe
and in America, whose mnteligence, whose indus-
try, whose enterprise, whose public spirit, has laid
the deep foundations and erected the stupendous
fabrics of prosperity and true glory that are spread
throughout the nation, accept associations proffered
by drivellers, who, at this day, proclaim as a dis
eovery of their own, that "the avocation of the
merchant requires as much character and talent,and
is of as much dignity and usefulness, as any other
pursuit or profession; and the senseless prejudice
which would assign to it an inferior rank, has been


blindly borrowed from those ancient republics and
modern despotisms, whose policy it was to regard
war as the only honorable pursuit," and who as-
sumimg, as upon this discovery, the position of in-
dulgent parents, deliver as a new dogma, that
" the pursuit of commerce must be liberalized, the
commercial class must be elevated in public opinion to
the rank in society which properly belongs to it."-
They cannot but laugh to scorn the imagination,
and those who conceive it. Pit are they, in truth,
to rank, as merchants, with the solemn Dutchmen,
who burned one half of their tea to make the other
half more valuable.
INDIAN WAa.-We are indebted to a correspon-
dent in Florida, says the Savannah Republican of
the 7th inst., and on whom we can rely, for the fol-
lowing information in relation to the further move-
ment of the Army in that quarter:
FORT HEILEMAN, Nov. 5, 1837.
"Gen. Jesup is siill here, as also Gen. Eustis and
Col. Twiggs. The whole of the forces are at this
time in readiness to move, and I suppose will in two
or three days, though tomorrow was the appointed
day; however, every person has been using their
utmost to be ready. I f expect, should Col, Twiggs
get near enough to the enemy, he will give a large
account of them. All appear anxious for the ap-
proaching conflict. I say conflict, for Sam Jones
has with him six hundred warriors, and he is raging
on occount of his crutches, Powell and the two
Hicks being taken, and probably will be easily led
into a fight. We here suppose that Micanopy and
some few of the peace party may be easily taken,
can we find out where they are. Indian trails have
just been reported fourteen miles from here, and a
c mpany ordered after them immediately, though
it is at this moment a quarter past twelve at night.
The steamer Santee has just returned an half hour
ago from Volusia, whither she went to take Major
Gardiner's command. They found the old pickets
had been destroyed sometime ago, and grass grown
up, which shows they are not very friendly."

THE EMIGRATING INDIANs.-The annexed ac-
count ds some details, but gives no satisfactory
explanation, of the catastrophe that resulted in the
destruction of near 300 Indians on board the steam-
boat Monmouth.
[From the N'. 0. Commercial Bulletin.]
There have been divers contradictory rumors in
regard the circumstances attending the recent dis-


spoken, and tendered every possible assistance in
saving the lives and property of the Indians.
The Yazoo and John Nelson steamers, which
were also laden with Indians, were soon on the spot,
rendering all the aid in their power. Mr. E. in-
forms us that the night of the accident was dark
with a drizzling rain, and that neither the ship nor
the steamboat that had her in tow,were discovered
by any person on the Monmouth, until the moment
before the vessels came in contact. It having been
stated in some of the published accounts, that the
accident occurred through the negligence and mis-
management of the officers of the Monmouth, and
further, that she was an old boat, not well manned,
&c. Such we are informed by Mr. E. is not the
fact.
The boat was but a little over 12 months old,
was well manned, all her officers were of experi-
ence, and knowing their duty did not neglect it, and
in fine, she ranked among the best boats on the
river,
For ourselves, we cannot but deem it carelessness

of no ordinary degree, to tow a ship on a dark
night without lights on the river, and such we are
informed was the fact.
There were on board the Monmouth 490 Indians,
out of which number 234 were killed or drowned.
Many of the survivors were badly injured ; sever-
al physicians, actuated by the best ft elings of hu-
manity, came from Bayou Sara, and administered
to the poor unfortunate Indians.

METEORS OF THE 12th AND 13th NOV., 1837.
The fact of the annual re-appearance of Meteors
on th:s date has excited so much attention, and so
much has been said on the subject, that many have
been led to expect a repetition of the far famed
"shower of stars" of 1833.
To such, if on Sunday evening they hastily
glanced at the Heavens, and as hastily retreated,
disappointment was inevitable. To those who de-
sired to establish as many facts as possible, in rela-
tion to these phenomena, and who were willing to
keep a continual watch during the whole of the
night, satisfaction was as certain as gratifying.
The evening was beautiful, and the moon so
brilliant that only the brightest stars were visible.
Towards morning the thermometer fell to 32, and
the roofs were covered with hoar frost.
It was not to be expected that any but the most
brilliant meteors could be seen. The writer saw
none until about 2 o'clock, from which time until
sunrise about 70 were seen-most of them in bril-
liancy equal or superior to the brightest fixed stars
-and many left trains of considerable length. It
was found that the point of radiation was very
nearly, if not quite, in the same place as in Novem-
ber last. The number of meteors visible was of
course less than on that occasion-when there was
no moon-and commencing so late at night, many
undoubtedly were lost in the day: and as several
were observed even in the clear light of dawn, it is
not unlikely that such was the case.
Though the number seen was small, and not suf-
ficient to gratify the curiosity of a casual observer,
yet the information gained is of the highest import-
ance in the solution of the question as to the origin
and nature of these bodies. It is desirable that all
who have seen anything worthy of note on Sunday
night or Monday morning, should record their ob-
servations with care, and preserve them for future
reference. G. C. S.
We should be glad to hear from any other quar-
ter whether, and under what circumstances, these
meteors were observed.-[ED. N. Y. Am.]

U. S. CIRCUIT COURT, November 13th.
Judge THOMPSON presiding.
Lewis Crawford, Henry Carson, Mark Carr,
Edmund C. Finch, and John Kerney, were put on
their trials for attempting to make a revolt on board
the ship Clifford Wayne on the 14th of May last.
Charles Dowvnes examined for the prosecution;
was master of the ship Clifford Wayne; she sailed
on the 29th of December last, from Fairhaven; her
crew were 25 in number; her voyage was to have
been a whaling one, On the 14th of May, while
she was on the -northwest coast of New Holland,
the first officer told witness that Lewis Crawford
rpfused to do dnty ; witness sent for him, butt Cra--
ford refused to come, and said witness should go to
him if he wanted him. W witness then went forwlid
and asked Crawford what he meant, and Crawford
replied that he would not do duty any longer, and
that there were several others of the crew of ihe
same mind ; witness desired such of them as were
so inclined to separate themselves from the rest, and
go over to the other side of the deck, and eleven of
them did so. Amongst those eleven were the pris-
oners at the bar.
Four of the revolters were since sent to Boston
for trial. When the prisoners separated from the
rest of the crew, they all said they would do noth-
ing more than work the ship into a port, and refus-
ed todoany duty on a whaling voyage. The next
day witness called them aft, each of them separate-
ly, and urged them to return to their duty; Ker-
ney did so, but the others refused. At the time
they refused duty, the ship had taken two whales.
The third day witness called Crawford and Holmes


into the cabin, and again urged them to return to
their duty even for a month, but they peremptorily
refused. At the expiration of four days, finding
them still obstinate and determined not to return to
their duty, witness bore away for the Isle of France,
a distance of nearly 3500 miles. When at the
isle of France they refused duty altogether, and
witness gave them up to the AmericA'n Counsul.
Cross-examined-The prisoners gave no reason
for their conduct except that they wished to return
to their families. Witness believes that they ob-
jected to the mate, whom they did not consider a
good whaleman; believes all the crew knew that
Wm. Studson was to be the mate when they sailed.
He came on board the 29th, just as witness was
going to sea; did not hear any complaints made
against him prior to going to sea. After the ship
got to the Isle of France, Crawford, Carson, and
Kerney offered to return to their duty if witness
would put the mate ashore; but the remainder of
the crew refused to stay if the mutineers were al-
lowed to remain on board. When out four months
they had taken two whales Four of the prison-
ers, Carson, Holmes, Finch, and Carr, were green
hands, the other two had been at sea before. There
were no objections made against the mate until the
vessel had been four months on her voyage.
Henry Holmes-one of the prisoners who had
been indicted for the same offence, but had not been
put on his trial, was now called and examined.
Witness thinks that the difficulty occurred on the
14th of May. On the evening of the 13th he
came on deck and heard two or three of the crew
talking about knocking off duty. and asked wit-
ness what he thought about it. Witness was then
very homesick, and understood it was no crime to
knock off duty, and therefore agreed to join them.
Next day the man at the mast head was not reliev-
ed in time, and the mate then asked Crawford,
whose turn it then was,why he did not go to the mast
head, and Crawford refused to do so; the mate told
the captain, who called Crawford forward, but he
refused to go, and the captain came to him and asked
his reasons for not doing his duty; witness thinks
that Crawford said it was on account of bad usage
by the mate; they told witness that the reason why
they intended to abandon their duty was because
the mate was no whaleman, and stove his boats.
They had about sixty barrels of oil when this oc-
currence took place. Some of the men complained

shis that made some of the most fortunate voyages.
Captain Downec recalled.-Was altogether a-
verse to breaking up the voyage, as he was part
owner, and the breaking up of the voyage injured
him seriously; was in the latitude of 17 1-2 south
when the revolt took place.
This was the case foofle prosecution. No evi-
dence was called for the defence which was ground-
ed almost solely on legal technicalities. The Jury
found all the prisoners guilty.

The affairs of Lower Canada are beginning to ex-
cite a more lively interest in Upper Canada, proba-
bly occasioned by the removal of the troops. The
requisition to the High Sheriff for a meeting at
Kingston on the 2d inst. is inserted in the Gazette.
Other meetings were to be held at Brookville and
Prescott. A private letter from Toronto, of the 31st
ult.states that the last of the troops were then march-
ing down to the steamer, to embark for Kingston,
amidst the cheers of the population. Two offers had
been made by the citizens and the Rifle Corps, to
do military duty, but His Excellency declined, sta-
ting that the civil authority was sufficient. Six thou-
sand stand of arms had been delivered into the

Hall, where they were guarded by Constables.-

Hopes are entertained of getting the wrecked
steamers at Port Pontchartrain again on water.
We learn from the Courier of last evening, that the
Merchant has been sold for $12,500, and the pur-
chaser is sanguine of succeeding in his attempt to
get her afloat. The underwriters of the Pontchar-
train have agreed to pay $16,000 for the repair
and launching of that boat. If the workmen are
successful with the Merchant and Pontchartrain, we
trust the Mobile and Columbia, two excellent
boats, may again find their proper element.-[Pi-

MAIL ROBBER CAUGHT.-By a letter received
from Detroit, Michigan, we learn such facts as leave
no doubt of the apprehension of one of the robbers
of the mail between Columbus and Springfield,
Ohio. The circumstances are about as follows :
A man calling himself John J. 1 ngalls, attempted
on 7th ult. to pass to Mr. Norton, cashier State
Bank ofMichigan, a post note for $1000, drawn by
the Morris Canal Co. ofN. J. In conversation as
to the manner, place and time of obtaining it, he ex-
citedthe suspicions of Mir. N,, who caused him to be
taken before one of the city Justices, who commit-
ted him for further examination. The note as de-
scribed was made payable to J. F. D. Denie, by
him endorsed to the order of E. D. Johns, Cashier,
and by him to H. Shurlds, Cashier, and by him to

TO EDWARD.
And wouldst thou know the Spirit's flight ?
Ask not the stars, though e'er so bright,
They have not pow'r nor will to tell
Where soul may rest or spirit dwell.
'Tis not in human ken to see
The wonders of Eternity.
Expect not then the crumbling mould
The hidden knowledge to unfold;
Enough for man to know that Love
Hath fashioned all that live and move;
Think not thyself from him estranged,
By whom the wondrous plan 's arranged
Forever, though thou may'st not see
His Spirit watcheth over thee ;
And when Death's gathering shades in gloom,
Shall veil thy sight from Nature's bloom,
Thou shalt awake to ask no more,
Where soul may rest or spirit soar.
Whate'er in Nature thou may'at see,
Of flowering shrub and blossom'd tree,
Whatever of lovely and of put e
May charm thy heart and sight allure,
Thou yet shalt find but intervenes,
To veil the view from future scenes,
To shade it from that world, too bright
To dawn at once on hrman sight-
A world, whose lustre would defy
The vision of a mortal eye,
Which to the Earth would backward turn;
So pure those kindling glories burn.
How kindly e'en in this dim light,
Which man has learned to fancy bright,
Our eyes are shaded from the glare
Which Summer's mid-day heavens wear,
How long before the infant's eye
Can learn to scan the arching sky;
How long before it learns to feel,
The treasures which its powers reveal;
When in the garner of the miod,
It deems a world is too confin'd-
To satisfy its quenchless thirst
It would the bonds of Nature burst,
And soar away to realms unknown,
Where boldest wing hath never flown.
Thou hast, my child, at thy command,
The treasures of that promised land,
Thou hast within thy youthful breast,
The image of that world of rest.
The boundless wish that fills thy soul
Attests the nature of its goal ;
'T is not in mortal pow'r to give
The blessing which thou would'st receive,
It therefore asks another sphere
For joys it cannot gather here,
It therefore asks a hard Divine
To lead it to its holy shrine.


Oh think not then that He who spread
The canopy above our head,
And scattered wide on ev'ry land
The blessings of his bounteous hand,
With all that's lovely, good and fair,
That walk the earth or sport in air,
Will not provide a fitting home
For us, beyond the vale of gloom.
