VOLUME II. NO. 835. NE W-
The mountains of billows threatening every instant
to swallow up the frail bark tossed at their mercy-
each crested with a silver foam upon a head of most
matchless green-and these a(ll breaking and dying
away, and giving place to others in constant and mul-
tiplied nsucession- leaping, darting, tearing, howling
along, as if in maniac spQrt, must be seen to be cre-
dited-felt to be appreciated; or, in other'words, to
leave on the mind an undying reminiscence of awful
and otherwise inconceivable stupendousness.
I know not how it was, but in this tempest, the
steward had the temerity to set the table for dinner,
and here a scene ensued thatbeggars description.
We seated gurselves-the plates and dishes dan-
cing very little to Qurtsatisfction--and a potato, or
so, every instant popping over, and rolling from one.
side of the cabin lto the other.
We now waited for the soup, and our eyes were
gladdened with a sight of a large tureen. We were
all very cold, and hailed its appearance with plea-
Thg steward found, however, that he had got a
very ticklish job in conveying it safe to table. A
sudden lurch caused him to catch hold of the Cap-
tain, and slip into a chair by his side.
The Captain, an irrascible man, resented the 'n-
pardonable liberty, and exclaimed, What do you
mean, you infernal nigger 1"
Another lurch came before the steward could reply,
and not letting go his. hold, he brought the Captain
to the ground at once, and falling upon him, poured
over his devoted head and necko the whole contents
of the heated liqui4d- *.
The same lurch ment every particle of the dinner-
plates, dishes, knives, forks, &e. into the laps of those
to the leeward side of the table.. One had a chicken
in his arns-anotherwas cu4dling aham in his lap-
all were in confusion and'disorder.
The passengers o the windward saw with asto-
nishment every: aarsel[ of their promised fare, gl-
loping to the other side, and the tables in an instant.

CORK, MONDAY, DECEMBER 12, 1836. WHOLE NO. 400.
NEW-YORK, MONDAY, DEC. 12, 1836.
121 We received nothing new by the Express Mail
last evening from Washington. Great anxiety perva-
ded the city to know the state of General Jackson's
health. By a slip from Mobile, we learn that the Tal-
lahasse, said to have been wrecked, arrived at New
Orleans, all safe, on the 30th ult. The following is
from the Augusta Chronicle, of Dec. 6.
THE GREAT RACE, this day, for $10,000, between
Hickory John and Miss Medley, was won by the for-
imer with ease, in two heats, coming out about forty
feet ahead each time, and beating her almost every
stretch. Time-first heat, 7m. 55s.-allowing for the
length of the track over a mile, 7 55-second heat,
Bm. 4s.-allowing for the additional 36 feet, 8m. 3s.-
The Turf was wet and heavy, in consequence of the
3ain, which fell considerably before and during the
LATEST FROM FLORIDA.-Col. Randall, late Adju-
tant and Inspector of the Army in Florida, arrived in
Charleston on the 5th inst. by the steam packet Dol-
phin, from St. Augustine. He has furnished the par-
ticulars of a succession of gallant engagements with
the Indians in the very heart of their morasses and
strong holds, which do our gallant troops immortal
On the 11th ult. the army marched from Fort
Drane; on the 12th it arrived within three miles of
the Wythlacoechee. On the 13th the Tcnnessee~vo-
lunteers applied for the honor of crossing the river, it
being at the point they had been before baffled.
On the forces-Creeks and regulars-commanded
by Col. Pierce, crossing, four of the regular troops
were drowned. No opposition from the enemy.
From an old infirm [Indian found at the deserted
Cove, it was learned that the Indians had retreated to
Waho's Swamp, and that in the recent prior engage-
ments they had lost in the first 13, and in the last 33
Dispositions were now made to capture the enemy,
and on the 17th, at noon, from 150 to 200 of them
were found in the line of march of the main army en-
camped in a hammock. Upon being charged, they
fled, leaving 20 dead on the feld, and all their bag-
gage and horses. Our loss was one killed and ten
On the 18th, the commander in chief marched at
the head of 550 Tennesseans and others into Wahor's
Swamp. Here a desperate engagement ensued,
which lasted nearly half an hour. The enemy, from
600 to 700 strong, acted with great skill and bravery,
charging the troops both in front and rear. They
-were, however, vanquished, and obliged to retreat,
leaving 25 dead, and others doubtless carried off. The
lose of the troops was three killed and fifteen wound-
ed. On the 19th the army effected ajunction to make
Renewed attack on the swamp. On the 21st they
s mrcehed in three columns into thqe amp. They

They w re opsued to yprpss awmp, where an-
ethM desperate engagement ensud, in which our loss
wazmuch more considerable than in any other en-
counter. TII loss of the enemy was ten in the field,
from which they were 'routed-on the other aidq of
the stream it is supposed they must have lost 50.
The'pass was not taken. The officer in command
of the troops decided that, at so late an hour of the
day, with an entire ignorance of the country behind,
the attempt should not be made; and they accord-
ingly withdrew their men, carrying away their ead

There is more real charity in the world ofNew York

spectable in their profession-but the continued quar-
rels by our physicians here, would destroy the utility
and character of any institution.
The attempt now made by spies, informers, and
every species of abominable misrepresentation, in a
miserable penny paper, to destroy the usefulness of the
College is a matter not very creditable to Dr. Rogers
and his friends-if we are not mistaken it comes very
near to that species of conduct which we might call
"disgraceful." Its character throughout has been a
series of acts, more congenial to the lowest state of
barbarism than the age-of science, elegance, and civi-
lization. First comes, not a dignified controversy, but
violent attacks through papers, pamphlets and speech-
es-then the disreputable personal assault in the street
made by Dr. Bedford upon Dr. Beck-an assault nat-
ural enough among loafers in the Five points, butnot
particularly shining in a doctor-then follows the
union of this fighting clique with the Mirror clique in
establishing a penny paper for their mutual purposes,
in the manufacture of general abuse and calumny-
then to wind up comes the underhand attempt of Dr.
Rogers to subvert the discipline of the College and
create disturbances among them, by sending spies to
corrupt and lead away the students.
In the whole history of science, there is not an ex-
ample on record of such a course of conduct, adopted,
persisted in,encouraged, and sanctioned by men calling
themselves gentlemen, learned too, and claiming to be
true friends of knowledge. Rival quacks, of the low-
est order, living in the Five Points, and selling pills at
a penny a piece, would have considered themselves
disgraced by such conduct.
THE SEAMSTRESSES.-We are hippy to observe,
by their advertisement, that the Seamstresses intend
to have a meeting at Euterpean Hall, Broadway, and
that they have invited Ogden Hoffman, Hugh Max-
well, the Rev. Mr. Schreeder, and IR. B. Blatchford,
to address the meeting.
With such an array of high names, the Hall will
be crowded by all the talent, taste, fashion and be-
nevolence of the city. Such a crowd will be brought
that we rather think it will be necessary to issue
tickets of admission; and if they do so, why not
charge for them a shilling a piece ? Not a lady of
talent and'beauty in the city that will not attend.
From the lips of such orators, it will be the greatest
intellectual entertainment ever furnished in New
York. The subject is new-the topics thrilling-the
object heavenly-the recipients, the gentler, fairer,
lovelier, weaker sex.
Tickets at a shilling did we say? Nonsense.
Put the tickets at fifty cents, and you will fill the
house, besides raising a subscription. Better still-
why not make it a splendid ORATORICAL FES-
TIVAL 1 Would it not outshine any Dramatic Fes-
tival on record ? Is not the silvery, thrilling elo-
quence of Hoffman superior to the mouthing of any
vagabond player Is, not the magnificence and
power-the splendour and tumult of Hugh Max-
well's oratory, far beyond the ranting of the highest
acor of any drama 1 .

SA MonLrLIsT.-Rabbi Walsh, the prig~ who edit
the Philadelphia National Gazette, says asustantially,
that for the course we took against the disgraceful
Hamblin Benefit, we richly deserved to be knocked
down, robbed, plundered, &c. &c.
Who is this Walsh '? What is his character?
What his talents? What his position in Philadel-
phia society ? Whathis morals? What his religion?
What his philosophy ?
We shall inquire in a day or two, and set some
matters in a strong light to the people of Philadel-

NATIONAL THEaTRE, Saturday-Mr. Jones is de-
termined to make the public know what a bold mur-
derer he is. He tore Hamlet limb from limb last
week, and butchered Shylock on Saturday. Portia
was prettily played, and Jessica was too fascinating
for a Jew's daughter, both in person, manners and per-
formance. Flynn set the house into convulsions.
Mitchell made every side burst with laughter, and the
Ravel family astonished all with their inimitable per-
ACCIDRNT.-The Hon. George Poindexter, in pass-
ing out of his room, in the Mansion House, Natchez,
on the 15th ult, mistaking his way, fell from the lob-
by to the ground. His right leg and left thigh were
broken, and his life is despaired of. 0
Row WITH THE WATCHMEN.-A party of four or five
young men were walking by the Park in rather a dis-
orderly manner, when a watchman went up to them
and wished them to be quiet. One of the young men
told him they were not disturbing either the public or
him. The watchman immediately took hold of the
man and collared him-upon which one of his com-
panions flew to his assistance, and cried out I'll res-
cue him." Poor Charley was floored in an instant,
and although he knocked loudly on the pavement, none
of his brethren came up in time to render him any as-
sistance, for the young men were bounding away like
deer, at the distance of twelve blocks from the place
where the disturbance began.
SHAKSPEaE.-At Philadelphia, the unfashionable
Theatres, the American and Pennsylvanian, are gi-
ving Shakspeare's plays to their delighted unfashion-
