General Fund.
The capital of this fund has been used up for the
ordinary support of the' government, with the ex-
ception of a few remnants of land, which were not
included in the constitutional aaprpropriations of the
public lands to the School Fund. The General
Fund has re tlized from the s.le ofea lot at Oswego,
originally reserved for military'purposes, and from
salesof a few other lots, the sum of $160,450 96,
during the fiscal year. The salt duties, and the
principal part of the auction duties, now belong to
the General Fund.
Canal Funds.
These funds consist of the c:nals themselves,
t>nd the tolls derived from them. The auction and
salt duties, which heretofore belonged to the E,-ie
aind Chumplain Canal Fund, have, by an amend-
ment to the constitution, been transferred to the
General Fund. The lands which were originally
granted to this fund, have been sold, and the bonds
obtain, d therefor have been transferred to the Com-
mon School Fund, in exchange for o:her securities.
The Oswego Canal Fund will receive ten or twelve
thousand dollars during the current year, for sales
of lands in the Salt Springs Reservation, which
were appropriated to that fund.

The expenditure on account of Indian affairs, in
punishing criminals,surveyirg railroads, and for the
new State Hall, have been considerably less than
the preceding year.
It is estimated that the General Fund will receive
$350,000 from auction and salt duties for the cur-
rent year. The revenue from salt duties, however,
m:ly be Zffected by the proposed reduction of duty
on ftreigh salt, by the general government, and the
consequent reduction of duty on Onondaga salt, by
the legislature of this sttte. The constitutional
amendment which authorises the transfer of the salt
duties to the General Fund, places the reduction o!'
he duty on salt Mn the power of the legislature.-
Whatever the treasury may lose by such reduction
Ais the action of Congr'-ss may render necessary,the
pe, ple will gain by the removal of a tax upon an ar-
ticle of universal consumption.

reason that funds have been set apart for the reim-

iUon in 1838, and to loan it out to the citiZlies bf the
respective counties, secured by a mortgage on unin-
cumbered real estate, worth double the amount of
the sum loaned, exclusive of buildings. And in as-
certaining the worth of the land to be mortgaged,
the Commission.ers of Loans might be restricted to
the value set upon it by the assessors in the assess-
ment rolls of the town, deducting ths fair value of
the buildings, if any, from the valuation thus ob-
t lined.
These loans might be made by the same commis-
sioners, who now have charge of the loans of 1792
and 1808, requiring them to give new and separate
bonds, and to keep the same distinction in all re-
spects, between the United States deposit fund and
the other moneys under their charge, which is now
r preserved between the loans of 1792 and 1808.
The act of 1792 for loaning moneys to the seve-
ral counties, authorized the county judges and su-
pervisors to appoint the loan officers, and required
all deficiencies in the payment of any of the loans
to be made up by a tax on the county. The act
of 1808 gave the appointment of commissioners to
the Governor and council, leaving all losses to fall
on the State Treasury, instead of being assessed
upon the county. In 1832, an act was passed,
(chap. 118,) requiring the "loan officers" in the
several counties, under the loans of 1786 and 1792,
to transfer their books and minutes to the "com-
missioners of loans," whowere thereafter declared to
be ex officio "loan officers," and to possess all their
powers, and are required to perform all their duties.
These commissioners are now appointed by the
Governor and Senate, and the supervisors have no
authority over them, except that they are required
annually to inspect their accounts and report there-
on to the Comptroller. If the county authorities
are not permitted to have any voice in accepting the
loan in behalf of the county, or in the appointment
of the officers who are to have charge of it, the risk
in regard to losses ought to fall upon the state Trea-
sury, and not upon the county. Losses of princi-
pal should be made up from the current interest.
The law of 1808, entitled An act authorizing a
loan of moneys to the citizens of this state," is gen-
erally applicable to the loans which may be author-
ized, and its adoption, with the addition of authori-
ty to appoint commissioners in several of the coun-
ties, organized since 1808, and suitable provisions
for calling in on reasonable notice, such sums [as
may be required by the general government will, it
is believed, establi&r a sarft ai-nrtT0taioy Ry -re
for the investment of the moneys which may be re-
ceived from the United States government.
The amount to be loaned to each individual was
limited to $750 by the act of 1792, and to $500 by
the'act of 1808; and might he made for as small a
sum as $75 by the former, and $50 by the I hitter act.
Some such limitations will be necessary to secure
a fair distribution of the money tWobe loaned'; and
strict regulations should be adopted to prevent fa-
voritism on the part of the commissioners in regard
to applicants!; or combinations to enable persons
by indirection to obtain more than the prescribed
amount.
The loans of 1786, 1792 and 1808,{haye been safe
and profitable investments, and the interest has been
punctually paid. The losses on these loans have
been less, probably, than on the same amount of
capital invested for the same length of time in any
other mode.
The deposit which is to be made by the United
States government in the treasury of this State,
will, it is understood, be made in drafts upon cer-
tain banks in this State, which now have the mo-
ney in deposit. It is not improbable that some of
these banks may desire to retain the money on
terms similar to those which are made respecting
the Canal Fund loans, Investments made by the
county commissioners will yield from one to one
and a half per cent. more than those made with the
banks, and as these institutions already have near-
ly four millions of the money belonging to the State,
it is believed that the large amount now to be in-
vested ought to be generally diffused throughout
the State, and brought within the reach of a class
of persons who can furnish security the most sat-
isfactory for permanent investments, but which
would not enable them to get bank accommoda-
tions.
It will not be desirable to draw the deposit mo-
ney from the banks which now hold it, until ar-
rangements for loaning it are matured,providedthose
banks are willing to pay a fair interest for the use
of it. In this way, it is believed that arrangements
can be made to have the money paid to the indivi.
duals making the loans, on the draft of the commis.
sioners, in such manner as to ensure the payment ol
interest from the bank, until interest commences or
the mortgage.
It is obvious that in loaning the Deposite Func
in this manner it will not be practicable to mak<
collections with such promptness as to enable th4
treasury to meet calls which may be made by thi
General Government. Provision should there-
fore be made in the law, for meeting any such calls
without delay, by special loans on state stock, or
otherwise, to be repaid as soon as collections are
made on the investment of the fund. Such amea
msure will enable the treasury to redeem tlhe pledge
which the act of congress requires to be given, anc
will afford time to make collections from those whe
have borrowed the money, without inconvenience
to them.
[The report estimates the contributions to th(
Bank Fund in January, 1835, at $123,619 70, whicl
will make the total capital paid into the Treasury
$662,481 20. It is recommended in the report
that 5 per cent interest be paid by the state for th(
amount borrowed from the Bank Fund to supper
the government, this being the rate of interest
which the banks are now paying for the principal


part of the Canal Fund. At five per cent. the pre
sent capital of the Bank Fund would yield an an-
nual revenue of $33,000, which, after paying the
salaries of the Bank Commissioners, would afford
a dividend of 4 per cent per annum to the contribu-
ting banks, on the capital paid into the Treasury
The first dividend on the Bank Fund was made as
ofthe first of January, 1836, amounting to $10,17'
37, or 2 1-2 per cent on the capital of the fund.]
State Prisons
The State Prisons have been supported for the
year, from the earnings of the convicts; and be
sides paying all the charges for the general support
of the prisons, the transportation of convicts has
been paid for, which in former years was paid ou
of the .treasury. The payments at the Moun
Pleasant Prison, for the transportation of convicts
amount for the year to 2,559 07; and the pay-
ments at the Auburn Prison, to 5,145 42, making
a total for both prisons, of $7,704 49. This sun
is an additional charge upon the earnings of the
prisoners, and falls most heavily upon the Auburr
prison.
The earnings of the Auburn prison for the yea
ending 30th September, including a balance on
hand from previous earnings of $4,150 44, amount
to the sum of $54,458 70
Expended for support of prison, 51,389 81

Balance, $3,068 84
The prison at Mount Pleasant has furnished
stone to the amount of $15,207 80 for the new Stat
Hall, besides supporting itself from the earnings c
the convicts. The amount received during the yea
for the labor of the convicts, is $63,017 5
Add surplus of previous earnings, 27,699 5
Expenditures for general support, 62,889 8

Surplus on hand Sept. 30, 1836, $27,827 22
If to this be added the value of the
stone for the State Hall, furnished by
the prison in the last two years, 25,223 8

It shows a total surplus of $53,051 0

This tax will average a little more than one dti-
lar to each inhabitant of the State. The a'eisAge
rate of assessment is a fraction less than fiv ihlills
upon each dollar of the assessed valuation of real
and personal estate.
The whole number of acres of land,
as given in Burr's Atlas is 29,220,936
The number of acres assessed (ex-
cept in a few counties, where the
number is given from the Atlas)


is 27,650,368

Difference, 1,570,568 acres
The number of acres assessed in the state, is equal
to 43,203 7-10 square miles; the number of acres
given in Burr's Atlas shows 45,657 7-10 square
miles, which is the estimate of the late Surveyor
General, Simeon De Witt; and this estimate, as
stated in the Atlas published under his authority,
"( includes the whole surface, except the large lakes."
There is a difference between the quantity of land
assessed, and the whole area of the state, as given
by the Surveyor General, of 2,454 square miles.-
This difference is occasioned by the waters (other
than the large lakes,) which are excluded from the
assessments; also, the lands belonging to the state,
and rot assessed, say half a million of acres; the
lands occupied by the canals and other public works;
and also, the lands connected with churches, colle-
ges, academies, school houses and poor houses, all
of which are free from assessment.
The valuation in the whole state, in 1835, were
as follows, viz:
Real estate, $403,517,585
Personal do. 125,058,794
Non-resident debts, 3,842,028
1$532,418,407
In 1836, the valuations are as follows, viz:
Real estate, $539,756,874
Personal do. 127,639,486
Non-resident debts, 4,976,127
$672,372,487
Showing an increase in the valuation of
Real estate, $136,239,289
Personal do. 2,580,692
Non-resident debts, 1,134,099

Total increase, $139,954,080
[The pri'tcipal part of the increased valuation of
135 millions, is in 15 counties, a list of which is
given in u1 table annexed to the report, with a corn-
pvrian 6f t t cw.luitiona for 1835 nand 86. Over
ninety, millions of the total Increase is in the city
of New York.

REVIEW OF THE WEEK.
ESPRIELLA'S LETTERs-translated from the
Spanish. N. York: Geo. Dearborn.--This is the
title of a series of letters, purporting to be written
by a Spaniard in 1802--descriptive of England and
Englishmen-the country, its manners, peculiari-
ties, &c. Though published anonymously, and
passing for a time perhaps, as genuine translations
from a Spanish original, they were soon known to
be the production of Southey, a name now of ac-
knowledged and uncontroverted eminence, though
not heretofore unvisited with bitter censures and
revilings. As a writer of the English language, he
has no superior.
The book had a great run, and although now,
in this age of steam and railroads-antiquated-as a
mere book of travels, it has facts, learning and phi-
losophy in its pages that cannot lose their value.
As bearing upon a subject which in New Eng-
land--cool, calculating, far-seeing New England--
seems at this moment, singularly enough, to be at-
tracting attention after having been long exploded
elsewhere, we had marked, but are obliged for
want of room to omit, EsprieUa's account of Animal
Magnetism. It is contained in letter LI.-which,
and the subsequent one, we commend to the peru-
sal of believers in this theory.
THE CAUSE AND CURE OF INFIDELITY, WITH
AN ACCOUNT OF THE AUTHOR'S CONVERSION, by
Rev. DAVID NELSON, of GQuincy, Illinois. 1 vol.
N. Y.: John S. Taylor.-This volume proceeds on
the assumption, well justified, we apprehend, that
unbelief proceeds frequently from want of investi-
gation, and from inability, on that account, to an-
swer cavils and objections, which seem well found
ed, only because those to whom they are addressed
have not sought the knowledge which would dis-
prove them. It aims, therefore, to excite an interest
in such investigations, and either to furnish an-
swers, or to indicate where they may be found, to
plausible sophistries against the truth of Revela-
tion.
THE SPIRIT OF HOLINESS, by JAs. HARRING-
TON EvAN, A. M., Minister of John street Chapel,
with an Introductory Preface, by OCTAVIUS WINS-
LOW, Pastor of the 2d Baptist Church, Brooklyn.
I vol. N. Y.: J. S. Taylor.-The title explains
the design of this little volume, republished from
the English edition-which is, that while in all
things else the cause, and ministry, of religion are
prospering, there should be more effort to acquire
a "a spirit of holiness" to guide and sanctify the
common efforts.
'AMERICAN HISTORY.-We had hoped that the
controversy on this head, in our columns, was at an
end, or at any rate, that if prolonged, it would be
in a gentler spirit than had characterized, at least,
Mr. Jones' portion of it.
We are disappointed in both particulars. Mr.
Jones rejoins, and rejoins in a tone, that we must
say, atrikes us as rather belonging to personal ex-
asperation, than to literary discussion.
W e have felt constrained to omit certain passages
-and have doubts, not a few, about the propriety
of giving even what is published. It is, however,
the last-unless Prof. Tucker should see fit to reply,
which would close the controversy.

WINTER MUSINGS, NO. II.
Vision.--Reptiles.
While the press of this typographical country
has been pouring forth vast masses of light litera-
ture ; while poetry and philosophy, romance and
history, life's illusions and its realities, have been re-
vealed to us ini almost every form of creation and of
impression, the Chelonian yet sure progress ofsci-
ence has been chronicled in undying pages.
Winter is essentially the season of improvement
and meditation. The harvest is gathered in, the
cattle hybernate in undisturbed rumination, the cold
without enhances internal comforts, and the
hour which, a month since, we whiled away in the
unconscious evening stroll, is now given to a book ;
and,.be we old or be we young, our barnacles, be
they of gold, of silver, of tortoise shell, or of iron
mounting, we ever bless the light and its union
with vision-the simple yet incomprehensible link
which connects the material with the ideal world.
But if one of us should be required to describe
the phenomenon of sight and the infinitely delicate
apparatus which initiates us into the beauties and
mysteries of nature. I question if he would not start
with the shock repellant a direct interrogatory com-
municates, and then in a hurried tone of voice refer
his queror to the many volumes on vision and on
light, which have been written and little read since
the appearance of Sir Isaac Newton's optics.
Still, discoveries in Light and Vision, with a short
.Memoir containing Discoveries in the .Mental Facul-
ties, is the title of a recent work, whose appearance
and whose neatness,: do honor to the enterprise of
the Messrs. Carvills of this city ; who, we take
pleasure in stating it, have never issued any save
creditable publications.
This volume contains many bold assertions, sup-
ported by delicate and repeated experiments,
which, if received as true, by the body of scientific
men, will mark a new era in optics-a branch of
science so much talked of, so little understood, so
full of dogmas, inferences and isolated or imper-
fectly proved facts, and yet, touching the real sys-
tem and laws of which we are so ignorant, per-
chance so indifferent.
In arguing on subjects of which we are not
wel informed, we are ever apt to |be awed
by names. These, the author of the present
volume sets at defiance, and, to a certain ex-
tent, rightly. In the rigid search after truth,
we may be aided by the discoveries of those who
have trodden, before us, the steep and difficult
ascent. Yet such aids should be consulted as steps
in the ladder of reasoning,.rather than revered as
the opi sions of great and departed spirits. So great,
for example, is the importance attached to the names
of Newton, of Brewster, of Reid, of Mackenzie
and others, that the public will be slow in acknow-
ledging that objects are not inverted on the retina
that this organ itself is not the seat of vision, that
the dark angle of the eye is alike unfit to give dis-
tinct vision of the objects which fall upon it, and in-
sensible to light, that images do not pass from one
eye into the other. but are seen by both at once,
that the change of thoughts and ideas is always pro-
duced by varying the position of the eye. These,
and many other theories equally new and strange,
are advanced, as the author says, "without reluct-
ance or timidity or hesitation." If corroborated,
-:. ., --u iu eluciaatieour notions,
respecting the eye, the great beauty of whose con-
struction is, its simplicity.
It seems surely more natural to suppose that ob-

r6,viedge 6f the geography of Virginia i6 highly
reditable to your industry and to your zeal, The
iscovefr which you have made of the various
ames, under which the Staunton river is now
known was probably achieved by a reference to
he map of Virginia-but it wozld perhaps have
been more in character with the labors of a Pro-
sssor, to have declared to the world the antiquity
.nd the history of these ai-parently newly disco-
vered appellations.
But, sir, I have much more important evidence-
whereupon to convict you of blundering ignorance
.nd arrogance," than any thing exhibited in your
card. You say that you are unconscious of hav-
ng given me any provocation? And now, sir,
vere you not at Saratoga during the last summer,
.nd do you not remember to have used my name
vith some freedom of speech, to many gentlemen
of your acquaintance? To a warm personal friend
if mine, you spoke in such suspicious terms, that
ke reminded you of his feelings for me, and you
hen replied that you had no objection to my be-
ng informed of the nature of your remarks.-
Nearly every gentleman of my acquaintance, who
happened to be there simultaneously with yourself,
has kindly notified me of your impending ire, and
announced to me the certain destruction of the
character of William Hooper, and of the Mechlen-
burg Declaration-from the efforts of your vaunt-
ed pen. So completely, sir, did you play the" old
woman" at this famous watering place, that I have
been enabled to hear, not only all your sayings
about myself, but I am quite well acquainted with
,he contents of Mr. Madison's letter, in answer to
your dedication-likewise with your own epistle to
Judge Ruffin-not to mention the important rea-
sons which induced you to take no notice whatever
of "the unanswered and unanswerable book of
Major Lee."
And now, sir, after all this swaggering--all this
exhibition of" blundering ignorance and arrogance"
-you1 h-vo thQ hardchood to aasert that. you have
given me no provocation. Why did you not re-
member at Saratoga that you had not the honor of
my personal acquaintance? Where were then
your tender feelings for "my youth and inexpe-
rience" ? I will here close this address to you, by
an assurance that I have not gone into this Jeffer-
sonian controversy unprepared. I have studied
his character and his writings with as much fidelity
ai you can have done ; and as to the character of
William Hooper, I pledge myself to protect it as
sacred, and (if I am spared life enough) to send it
down as a precious inheritance for generations to
come. The charge of Mr. Jefferson against the
character of this illustrious patriot, is the most au-
dacious falsehood in the four volumes of his works;
but I shall not be surprised if you endeavor to sus-
tain it. The part which you have recently played
towards myself, convinces me that you are the very
man to write the Memoirs of Thomas Jefferson.
Jo. SEAWELL JONES, of Shocco.


injury repaired; but the organ once destroyed, can-
not be reproduced.
Imnus ad imos. In crabs and lobsters, limbs are
readily restored, and in snails the entire head has
been reproduced. The head of a hydra may be
split in several places, and each subdivision will be-
come a new head." Let us remark, en passant, that
a comparison of Hercules to Gulliver, and of his
exploits to the Lilliputian feats of Dean Swift's
hero, might prove a new and interesting theme for
the aesthetic elaborations of many a German philo-
sopher.
Let us turn fromthe Hero to the Tortoise. This
locomotive union of master and house, ranks high
among reptiles. Yet in his power of self-reproduc-
tion, he may be termed inferior to the salamander.
Bonnet and Blumenbach (oh for a digression,)
removed the limbs of a water-newt, and in less than
one year they were perfectly restored; and the same
wondrous effect resulted from a renewal of this ex-
periment upon the same subject. The eye of a
salamander was extirpated, and in less than eigh-
teen months, this delicate organ, with its complica-
ted apparatus, was perfectly reproduced. (What
Would Mrs. Griffitis say to this?) Also, tlree-
fourths of a Triton's head having been removed, it
seemed to possess consciousness until it grew on
again. Do not these phenomena of reproduction
unite most distinctly th< animal to the vegetable
kingdom ?
In gazing on the extremely natural and well exe-
cuted plates which enrich this handsome volume,we
find there to our surprise, many a familiar face; and
it required little of imagination to discover in each of
the nocuous and innocuousreptiles,whose habits are

In conclusion, it strikes us that the hypotheses
put forth by this volume, while they place vision in
new light, do not reveal to our eyes defects in
ur received notions concerning light itself. We
vould suggest to Mrs. G. a remark we once heard
orom the lips of a distinguished French savant-
Monsieur, il n'y a rien de si obscur que la lunmiire."
We have employed, somewhere above, the word
Chelonian, (or Tortoise like)-we found it in a de-
cription of the reptiles inhabiting the United Slates,
by JOHN EDWARDS HOLBROOK, M. D., of which the
irst volume has been recently published in an ele-
;ant quarto form by .7. Dobson, of Philadelphia.-
[he opening of our N. Y. Lyceum, the admirable
discourse which commemorated this event, and the
appearance of the above work in our sister aity,
support the predictions as to the sure progress of
science amongst us, with which we opened this ar-
icle.
Like most new countries, America abounds in
'eptiles. Although the columns of the Washing-
on Globe, of the Richmond Enquirer and of the Al-
bany Argus, afford daily and felicitous illustrations
of the nature and habits of many individuals of this
genus peculiar to our country; yet, if you would
earn more of them, read this book, which will put
o the test your powers of admiration and of La-
tinity.

"Reptiles are vertebrated animals, with lungs, a
simple heart, low temperature, slow digestion, and
oviparous generation, having neither hair, feathers
nor mammal."

This concise formula of the component elements
of so despised a genus of creation, presents us at a
glance with a condensed expression of their capaci-
ty for life and its enjoyment.
The science which enters into the development
of their physical and intellectual organization, is
termed Herpetology, so called from the union of
the Greek words sprsrov, a reptile, and Noyo; ratio.
When we read that God made every creeping
thing after his kind, and gave it every green herb
for meat, we divine not why aught should have
b,;en created, unless for the immediate or indirect
benefit of the lord, whom He hath set over created
things.
Without being guilty of the audacity to attempt
discovering motives and reasons for the dispositions
of Omniscience, we may assert that few of the mi-
nor classes of the animal kingdom offer more of in-
terest and of variety to the student of nature than
tke legions of creeping things which cling to the
bosom of eaaOh.
Neither the highest nor yet the lowest of verte-
brated animals, they fill a space between the birds
and fishes, and without them, a vast link in the
chain of animated beings would be wanting."
Indeed we sigh w'tmrlmoking on the moon and
stars, that our vision is too imperfect to ascertain
with what beings our sister planets may 1e peopled,
and this, while beneath our.feet there crawl myri-
ads of insects, in the grass around us thousands of
reptiles, of whose names-still more their habits-
we are ignorant.
Still, if I were to tell you that these very reptiles
are physically more wonderful, and infinitely more
varied and numerous in their character and attri-
butes than is the simple biped who rules creation,
you would be, doubtless, surprised.
And if I were to say that'hundreds of philosophers,
whose names only we know, have expended count-
less hours of industry and of study, in observing
their habits and in classifying their manifold races,
you would half blush at your own ignorance, and
respect the science out of consideration for those
whose names it has immortalized.
If we graduate the living creation from man's
exquisite vitality to the unconscious vegetation of
ihe oyster, or more, the polypus, we shall find the
scale of perfection apportioned with wondrous deli-
cacy.
A blow, a pang, amd
Our limbs are chilled,
The spirit has fled,
Life hath departed,
Man is dead.
This unfortunate propensity for extinction dimin-

MORRIS CANAL AND BANKING COMPANI.-We
learn from the proper authority that the Directors
of the Morris Canal and Banking Company have
recently concluded an important arrangement with
an incorporated company of two million dollars
capital and undoubted resources, whereby they
have obtained a satisfactory guarantee of a nett in-
come clear of all expenses, for the next ensuing five
years, and provisionally for ten, from (he canal and
its appurtenances, of six per centum per annum, upon
the entire expenditure of about three million of dol-
lars, in the construction of the canal and all the
works connected with it.
Henceforth, the advantages of these important
works, now completed to the very door of the city
of New York, will be even better secured to the
people of New Jersey and of those other fertile
regions, which will pour their mineral and agricul-
tural treasures to market through this channel.
The large investment in the canal and i-s works
during the last twelve years, will, by this arrange-
ment, be rendered an immediate source of profit.
The money capital of the Company devoted to
the important objects authorized by the charter,
will now be relieved from any burthen which might
at any time have been apprehended from the ex-
penditure upon the canal and its works.
The stock of the Morris Canal and Banking Co.
now receives a stable value, and this respectable in-
stitution must take rank with those of the hiehest

A ADDRESS AT THE PUBLIC MEETING IN BE-
HALF OF THE TAILOrtESSES AND SEa4M-
STRESSES -At a meeting of the Committee in behalf of
the Tailoresses and Seamstresses of the city, held on Tues-
day evening last, at the Astor House, (where the use of a
room was offered to them gratuitously by Mr. Boyden) it
was voted, that the Address of the Committee made at the
late public meeting be published, with a view to obviate any
wrong impressions that may exist as to the course pursued
by the Committee in relation to the MPLOTr.as ol that class
of females; this address having contained an expression of
the sentiments and views of the Committee, for which alone
they hold themselves responsible.
ADDRESS.
This meeting has been called by a Committee of citizens
appointed at the close of a public meeting of the Tailoress-
es and Seamstsesses' Benevolent Society, held at Euterpe-
ian Hall, on Thanksgiving evening, the 15th instant. Af-
ter listening to an earnest and irresistible appeal from the
laay who presided on that occasion, it was deemed advisa
ble by a number of gentlemen present, to take Immediate
measures for aiding the Society in the promotion of its hu-
mane objects.
Dr. THOMAS W. HENRY was called to the chair, and
a committee raised forthwith, consisting of thirteen gentle-
men, who subsequently met by invitation at the house of
Dr. Bostwick, for the purpose of devising some mode of
operation. It was then resolved to call a meeting of the
eitiz-'ns as a first step toward bringing the subj-ct distinct.
ly before public. A special committee was chosen to make
the necessary arrangements for that purpose; and we need
not say with what success they have appealed to some of
our most eminent citizens, and to the public generally, for
their countenance and co-operation in this benevolent
cause. The presence of this immense auditory, and of
the respected gentlemen around us, show clearly enough
that the call has been met by a heart-felt response from all
quarters.
That it may not be supposed the Committee have acted
wholly under the impulse of first Impressions, produced by
the effecting appeal to their sensibilities on the occasion a-
bove referred to, we think it proper to state likewise that
diligent inquiry has been instituted into the circumstances
attending the formation of the Benevolent Society in whose
behalf we are assembled, and that means have been used
to ascertain the general condition of the numerous class re-
presented by i', In the course of these inq:.iries, our own
minds have been entirely satisfied in regard to the urgent
necessities of those who ask for relief ; indeed, many ex-
treme cases ofindivdual suffering and distress have actual-
ly come under our notice, in different parts of the city,
which could not fail to excite the deepest commiseration
in every humane and benevolent heart.


The Society ot the Tailoresses and Seamstresses was
formed early in the present year. It appears from an
article in its Constitution, that the object ot the association
was to regulate and establish the prices of their labor,
and to ameliorate the suffering condition of |thousands
of females in this city, to which they have been reduced in
consequence of the small consideration afforded them by
their employers." It cannot be (enied that the Society
owed its origin, not so much to the want of employment,
for there was no deficiency at that time, as to the alleged
inadequacy of the prices of work established by their em-
ployersjwhich are said to have been barely sufficient to
enable the most industrious to drag out a miserable exis-
tence, from day to day,lin the garrets and cellars of old and
comfortless tenemert;s, without a toWerable supply of the
necessaries of life. It is not the intention of the Committee
to express any opinion in regard to the justice of these
complaints, but simply to state a few facts in connexion
with this part of the subject, from which some opinion
may be formed of their general correctness.
For the purpose of securing a uniformity, as well as in-
creased rate in the prices of their work, the Society, es-
tablished certain rates applicable to the various articles on
which they were accustomed to be employed, and to these
all who become members agree to conform. On a compa-
rison of this scale pricescs with those usually changed to
customers for work at the shops of our merchant tailors,
much of which is actually performed by females, one
cannot but be surprised at their moderation. If a cormbi-
nation was deemed necessary in self defence to establish
such humble rates, it is not strange that these helpless fe-
males should have sometimes complained, with apparent
cause, ofthe "oppression" of their employers. Indeed, it
is not easy to see how with a less return of their labor it
would be possible for them to obtain a bare subsistence, to
say nothing of the ordinary comforts of life. If this view
be correct, it must he regarded as a plain case of labor em-
inently productive to the employer, but without a reasona-
ble equivalent to the poor operative; incessant toil de.
prived of those grateful returns which alonecould render
it tolerable under any circumstances, andespecially to the
delicate females who have, perhaps, seen better days.
It appears from information furnished to the Committee
that the small sum of two or three shillings only had been
paid for making up articles of clothing, each of which
would occupy a person sixteen or eighteen hours. Several
cases of this description have come to our knowledge. One
is that of a poor widow who is accustomed to work from 7
in the morning till lLat night to earn two shillings, which
is all her employer is willing to allow her. Another earns
20 shillings a week, with which she pays a rent of seventy
dollars per annum, or eleven shillings weekly. With the
balance of nine shillings, she has to provide food, clothing
and fuel for herself and four small children Others have
declared that thay worked from 7 in the morning till past
midnight, and were stiil scarcely able to gain. a tolerable
livelihood. The effectof such unremitted and ill-paid la-
bor upon the health, is described as often truly appalling.
And when sickness cuts off even the scanty pittance on
which they depend for support, where are the.-e wretched
beings to look for relief? They have not been enabled to
provide for such an exigency by laying aside a portion of
hpir h.nail e.arnings. insulffRlient as they were for their im-


them all, that rmust soon find expression, and will ieAd to
efficient measures for their relief. Individual cases ofop.
press ve conduct will become generally known, and be as
generally condemned. Public sentiment, when the subject
Is once generally understood, will come to the aid of the
weaker party, and exert a salutary influence on both.
In the opinion of the Committee, the most conclusive ar
gument in behalfofthese friendless beings remains to be
urged. It is the startlingfact, that of the twenty thousand
females employed until recently by the clothing establish-
ments in this city,more than one half are now thrown out of
employment, in consequence of the diminished demand for
their labor, produced bythe embarrassments of business
operations.
Several large commercial houses, each of which employ-
ed more than a thousand persons, have found it necessary
to reduce the number in various proportions. One concern
has discharged a thousand, or two-thirds of the number to
which they have heretofore given constant employment.
Another has dismissed seven hundred out of eight hun-
dred ; and another that till lately employed a thousand,
now employs none Indeed, aniong the principal houses
engaged in this business, two only could be found, on dill-
gent inquiry. that have not been cont elled to discharge the
greater part from their service, owing to the almost unex-
ampled pressure of the times.
It is fair to supposes then, that from twelve to fifteen
thousand of these females have been turned out to seek
other means of support, at a season when they are least
likely to obtain it, and when all the expenses of living are
greatly enhanced. The excessive prices of the necessa-
ries of life-increasing with the wants of the community,
and bearing, as it were, an inverse ratio to the means of
the consumer-together with the incidental evils caused by
privation and exposure, render the condition of this large
number of destitute females intensely wretched and uuly
deplorable, in whatever light it may be viewed.
Many of them are the mothers of families, whose pros-
pects in life were once fair and bright, but who have been
reduced to poverty and distress by the misconduct of those
from whom they had a right to claim and expect protec-
tion and support, intemperance, perhaps, has dashed
their cup with sorrow, and transformed the gods of their
youthful idolatry into base examples of human degrada-
tion. Others are lonely and friendless orphan, left at an
early age to buffet the storms of life, and ever in momen-
tary danger of falling victims to the wicked and licentious
who prowl around their paths. The hghwayman who
despoils the traveller of his purse, sometimes pleads a
desperate p verty in mitigation of his crime Extreme
want produces a similar obmu-eness of moral feeling in
other cases. Indeed, there is no greater obstacle to a re-
solute adherence to a virtuous and unblemished course of
conduct. Poverty fills our prisons and penitentiaries, as
well as our alms -houses, and causes guilt to spring up in
hearts which, under other circumstances, would have been
the consecrated abodes of innocence and joy. It is not
physical suffering alone, then, that calls "loud:y for relief.
It is the prevention of crime, the security of moarl excel-
lence, that demands the a merciful interjiosition.
The remedy to be effectual must be immediate. Hun-
dreds are at this moment subjected to all the miseries of
their condition, aggravated by the severities of the season,
who once possessed the comtortsof life, and many of whom
even enjoyed its luxurie,. Many are now lying on beds of
sickness, without a friend to watch over them, indebted to
the benevolent physician for all the attention they receive.
An immediate application of an enlarged and liberal chari-
ty is imperiously required. There is no time for delibera-
tion. Action, efficient, instant action is demanded. The
innocent si-fferer may perish before relief comes, if iime
is- lost in cold deliberation. Hunger and cold may have
done their work ; the fon' 2-.-ther may have consingned her
famished child to its last a .-p for rhe want of those cheap
comforts which slie is unah. .-i procure.
This is noi fancy; we would it were no more. An instance
that has recently come to our knowledge, may be taken as
one of many similar cases that require no aid from the ima-
gination to render them iffcting exhibitions of human
woe. A respectable taiPoress, who supported her little fa-
Inily by her industry, was compelled to work early and
late for a consideration too small to enable her to supply all
their wants and to pay the rent of the room she occupied.
Her youngest child was iaken sick, and required so much
ol'her attent on that she was obliged to relinquish her
work. Atthe end of a week her means wete so utterly ex-
hausted that she was unable to purchase medicine for her
sick chiid. The child died, and the sorrowing mother was
indebted to the charity of her neighbors for enabling her to
bury it with decency. How grateful to that mother's heart
would have been the seasonable application of a little char-
ity. "Had you come," she may well say, -'had you come,
mychild might not have died !", There should then be no
delay in this good work; we are to make amends fui our
past neglect as well as to fulfil a present duty. No time
should be lost. Another innocent may perish before the
hand of reliefreaches it!
We are not asked on the present occasion to scatter our
alms to the four winds ot heaven ; it is not a distant objec
to which our benevolent feelings are directed. Oh no, the
evil is in the midst of us ; in our own city-" the great me-
tropolis of the nation"-in the language of another, the
mistressoi the arts-the seat of science--the asylum of the
oppressed-the centre of influence-the fountain of taste
and sentiment, an i the liberal patron of benevolent institiu.
tions, whose proud sons boast of their c ivalrous and phi-
lanthropic doings, and would feel the stain of meanness
like a wound.', Here it is, that WOMAN, in her weakness
and helplessness, oppressed with sorrow andi suffering,
implores our aid. It is not for man to turn a deaf ear to
the call. Woman has been the benefactress ot'f his life. A
mother's care and tenderness protected and biessed his
early days ; a sister's love animated and encouraged his
youthful aspirations ; a wife's fondness may soothe his
riper years, and gild many a dark cloud that lowers over
his prospects.
But we need not pronounce her eulogy ; it is already
written in our hearts. The following passage, however,
from the journal of Ledyard, the celebrated American tra-
veller,whose adventurous fbotsteps were familiar with eve-
ry clime, and whose ashes now repose on theebanks of the
Nile, may not be an Inappropriate conclusion to our ad-
dress:
I have observed among all nations that the women,
wherever found, are the same kind,civil, obliging, humane,
tender beings; that they are ever inclined to be gay and
cheerful, timorous and moderate. They do not hesitate
like man, to perform a hospitable or generous action: not
haughty, nor arrogant, nor supercilious, but full of courte-
sy and fond of society; mdustri;,us,economical, ingenuous;
more liable in general to err than man, but inr, general also
more virtuous, and performing more good actions than he.
I never addressed myself in the language of decency and
friendship to a women i,wlthehr civilized or savage,without
receiving a decent and friendly answer. With man it has
often been otherwise. In wandering overthe barren plains
ofinhospitab!e Denmark, through honest Sweden, frozen
Lapland, rude and churlish Finland, unprincipled Russia,
and the wide spread regions of the wandering Tartar, if
hungry,dry, cold, wet or sick woman has ever been friend
lyto me, and uniformly so; and to add to this virtue, to
worthy of the appellation of benevolence, these actions have
been performetl in so flee and so kind a manner, that if I
was dry, I drank the sweet draueht. and if hungry, ate tIhe
coarse morsel, with a doublerelish." i ,

ber of original leading articles, on a variety of important
political subjects, besides reviews, dramatic criticisms, di
gets of the proceedings of Congress and the Legislature,
kc. Among the original articles will be the following:
THE POLITICAL PLAINDEALER.
I. Strictures on thie Late Message-showing the imbe-
cility of its general tone, and the inaccuracy of several ol


its principal views.
II Progress of Fanaticism-showing that notwithstand-
ing Governor Marcy's statement to the contrary, the
fanatics and incendiaries" are rapidly increasing in num.
bers and influence, and the people generally are becoming
so unreasonable as to claim the freedom of speech.
III. Reform it Altogether-being a statement of what is
deemed the true course to pursue in regard to piloting.
IV. Mutilating Books-being a short essay on certain
malp.-actices of the New % ork publishers, arising out of
their unwillingness to reprint unpleasant truths; with saome
references to the literary timidity of Washington Irving.
V. In the Lowest Depth a Lower Deep-being a very
wild commentary on a very irritating subject, and showing
that the proposed repeal of the restraining law is a remedy
worse than the disease.
LITERARY PLAINDEALER.
VI. Mellichampe
VII. Jeremy Bentham's Defence of Usury.
THEATRICAL PLAINDEALER.
VIII. Power and Placide.
Together with a variety of paragraphs on general sub-
iects under the New York head, a view of the financial
condition of Europe, and summaries of political, personal
and miscellaneous news, accidents and offences, law re-
ports, &c. &c
The ) publication office of the Plaindealer is at the cor-
ner of Pine street and Broadway, basement rooms.

FO S Ett'S CABINET MISCELLANY.-The Cabi-
a net Miscellany having now reached the conclusion
ot the third volume, the Publisher thinks it due to the work
to exhibit to its patrons a .few of the testinionials which
have been given in its favor.
Of all the various reprir.ts with which the press of this
country teems, we know of none at once so universally in-
teresting and useful, as Foster's Cabinet Miscellany. We
consider it in the light of a public benrjit to this country.
Its form, matter, and manner is such as to recommend it
to the notice, and place it within the reach of the youth of
both sexes, more especially the male poTtion; antl its pe.
rusal will have the double effect of storing their minds
with a mass of invaluable knowledge, and weaning them
from those wild out of door hauat, "which, more than any
other cause tend to bring them in ,,?,tn i-ij '. "'

their children, an endeavor to excite an interest in their
minds for owning and reading them, a vast, radical, and
important step would be taken towards producing a better
state of public mnrals.--[Brooklyn Auvocate.1

The prompt and favorable reception which has ever
been given to Mr. Bristow B System, by the Citizens and
Ladiesof New York, and the very general success that has
always attended his efforts, induce him to anticipate that
his present visit here, will be distinguished as not less
brilhant and successful.
It is, then, with the most unlimited confidence in his

himself to impart, with the joint efforts of his Pupils, in
12 easy Lessons of one hour each !

MENT, 183 Broadway, (over the Druggist Store.)
The object of this Institution is to improve the imperfect
had writing of adults, and to qualify your men for the
Counting house, in'a superior and expeditious manner
Penmanship and Double Entry Book-keeping, are taught
on an improved plan, by which a competent knowledge ,l
these branches may be attained in one third of the time
usually devoted to that purpose.
Hours of instruction at the convenience of the pupil.-
Evening Classes 7 to9. Ladies' Select Classes from 11 to

MERCANTILE BOOK-KEEPINIG.-The manner in which this
art 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 re-
miiark; and we think Mr. Foster's plan-by connecting
systematic book-keeping with actual transactions-pos-
sesses advantages worthy the consideration of all % ho wish
to acquire the forms and modes of business in a thorough
and effectual manner.
His long experience in the counting houses, and skill as
a penman, are circumstances which qualify Mr Foster in
a peculiar manner for the duties of his profession
[From the Evening Journal.]
The system generally adopted is such, that when the
scholar arrives at manhood he still retains the school boy
hand--cramped, stiff and inelegant ; in that practised by
Mr. Faster, the reverse is the case. There is a freedom
and elegance, wh:ch at once qualify the learner for any
situat on in which writing is essential. Experience has
abundantly proved, that a-free and quick hand-writing can
be acquired bv this process in a very few lessons : an ad.
vantage wlich the old system does not offer at the end of
two year's application.
[ From the Boston Republican.]
We are personally acquainted with Mr. F.)ster, and take
great pleasure in recommending his establishment to the
'Hlfa *and are fully impressedi wih the practicability
and utility of his plan. It facilitates beyond all other
methods the attainment of a free, elegant anid rapid busi-
ness hand.
[From the Moral Reformer.]
Mr. Foster is unquestionably the first writing-master in
this city-if not in this country ; and bo far as much obser-
vation, and an acquaintance with him and his system au-
thorize us to speak, utterly free from humbug and quack-
ery.
[From the .Albany .Argus.]
Mr. Foster's system produces a-remarkably neat, flow-
ing, and uniform hand, and in a period so short, as to bear
no proportion to the years of labor and application under
the old methods.
[From the Boston .advertiser.1

great. His successs astonishing. In many thousands o
cases committed to his care, of all grades and every degree
of malignancy, he has speedily restored his pauientsto
health and a sound constitution.
He cautions the unfortunate againstthe abuse of mer-
cury. Thousands are annually mercurialized out of life.
See that your case is eradicated, not patched up. The
learned Dr. Buchan emphatically observes -" Married
persons, and persons about to be married should be par
ticularly cautiousof those afflictions. What a dreadful in-
heritance to transmit to posterity.," Persons afflicted.with
protracted and deplorable cases need not despair of a
complete recovery, by applying to Dr. Home. Recent
affections, when local, are, without mercury, extinguish
ed in a few days. What grieves the Dr. is, that many
afflicted, instead of taking his salutary advice, have re.
course to advertised nostrums, where there is no responsive
I'ility, and the compounders unknown ; by such means,
throwing away their money, (where they vainly hope t,
save,) and ruin forever their constitution.
Persons who may have contracted disease, or suspecI
latent poison, are invited to make application to Dr.
HORNE, at his Establishment, No. 268 Greenwichj
street, next the corner of Warren. A residence of thirty
two years in New York city, has radically established
Dr. Horne'scharacter for sterling honor; and based on rea

M OHAMbMED'S TURKISH DYE, for changing
light, grey or red hair, to a beautiful blace or brown,
s universally acknowledged to be the beat article for the
purpose ever presented to the public. So great has been its
success. that numrnerus imitations, under new names, have
been made both in England and this country, and palmed
upon the public.
The TURKISH DYE has been made and sold these
twenty years, by Mr. Atkinson, in London, and its reputa-
tion there, is greater than ever.
In this country it is well known, and is daily supersed
ing the use of other preparations for the purpose, composed
of deleterious materials, aind must eventually take the
place ot every other composition ol the same nature. Ito
operation is almost magical, being applied to the head at
night before going to bed, and on rising in the morningthe
transformation is complete, Iront gray to brown, orfrom
red to black. The skin meantime suffers nochange, either
trm tliscolorment, eruption, roughness, or other cause.
Its use is attended with little inconvenience and no ill con-
sequences. Sold wholesale and retail by

established, (as the satest and best remedy for common
colds: iniiucnza, coughIs, ashxna, whooping cough,spitting

stand on its own merits. The proprietors have received
from allquarters where this remedy has been introduced,
numerous testimonials of its surprising efficacy and value.

VEGETABLE PULMONARY BALSAM.-This truly
valuable remedy has now been before the public for
four years, and has proved itself the most valuable remedy
discovered for Coughs, Colds, Asthma, or Phthisic, Con
rsumption, Whooping Cough and Pulmonary affections o
every kind. Its sale is studily increasing, and the proi
prietors are constantly receiving the most favorable ac
counts of its effects.
COUNTERFEITS !-BEWARE OF IMPOSITION.-
The great celebrity of the Genuine Vegetable Pulmonary
Balsam Alas been the cause of atten,pts to introduce spuri-
ous articles, which, by partially asstiming the name of the
genuine, were calculated to mislead and deceive the pub-
lic. Among these mixtures are the "American Pulmonary
Balsam," "''Vegetable Pulmonary Balsamic Syrup,,,
"Pulmonary Balsam" and others.
Purchasers should inquire for the true article byits whole
name, the Vegetable Pulmonary Balsam, and see that it
has the marks and signature of the Genuine.
Each genuine bottle is enclosed in a blue wrapper, on
which is a yellow label signed Sampson Reid.
Each bottle and seal is stamped Vegetable Pulmonary
Balsam

.HE GENUINE HYGEIAN VEGETABLE
UNIVERSAL MEDICINES, of the British College of
Health.
"Hypocrisy is the tribute which vice has ever paid to vir-
tue."
The excellence and efficacy of these medicines in reliev-
ing and removing all the maladies of mankind, and the
beauty and value of the simple theory on which they are
founded, could not perhaps be more strongly proved than
by the unexampled effrontery, and bold but unfounded as-
sumptions of those who so perseveringly and at a vast ex-
pense endeavor to impose on the public feeble and unwor.
thy imitations.
Since the legal decisions which have established the claim
of the Genuine Hygeian Medicines to protection from direct
counterfeiters, numberless are the schemes of unprincipled
innovators to evade the just penalties of the law, and
scarcely a newspaper can be taken up that does not teem
with whole columns of garbled extracts from Mr. Mori-
son's publications, and by thus unblushingly assuming his
ideas and even his very words, vainly strive to rob him of
his original discovery, by which he rescued himself from a
series of suffering ot' 35 years continuance, and led to the
foundation of the sound but simple system of-the hygeian
physiology; whereas, had not Mr. Mnorion propounded
this system to the English community, and hau not its
lovely truths spread with a rapidity commensurate with
its Importance, through Great Britain. the continent ofEu.
iope, the nations of the East, and the United States ofAme-
rica, and, in fact, having agencies and advocates establish-
ed it. every civilized nation of the earth, neither their names
nor their ignorant pretensions would ever have been heard
of.
The publications of Mr. Morison and his coadjutors are
comprised in sixteen volumes, a reference to which will
readily satisfy any inquirer of the correctness of this state-
ment.
At the urgent request of many friends, it has been deter.
mined to su,,ply the genuine hygeian medicines in lower
priced boxes than heretofore, that the wants and wishes of
that class of the community may be met, who, while die-
liking to make applications for g atuitous relief to our die-
pensaly, yet do not wish, or have not the means of laying
out a larger sum at once. The pills, therefore, may now
be obtained of the various agents established in every town
in the United States, in boxes at 25 and 50 cents each, as
well as in packets of l. 2, and 3 dollars.
