Mr. JAMES SUCH, formerly of Trinity College,
Cambridge, (in England,) and'also private tutor in that
University, receives into his family six pupils. His
house is situated near Jamaica, Long Island, but little
more than half an hour's 'ide by railroad from New
York. The course of instruction is precisely that which
is pursued at the most respectable schools in England,
such-aas EtAn, Harrow, Winchester,.ntd the9 .Charter
House-the same education as given to the-sons of-'the
higher classes in England wlien they aspire to University
honors, and are designed for Parliament, the Bar, or the
Pulpit ; with the addition, however, of a thorough know
ledge of the French language, and Mathematics on the
Cambiidge plan.
The discipline isaltogether that of a private family, a
discipline whichcan only obtain where the number is
very small Religious instructions strictly attended to.
Mr. SUCH hasbeen brea to te. business of instruction.
He is wholly devoted to his pupils, and takes'no more
than he can himself do strict justice by, without trusting
to hired assistance. He is well acquainted with the
French language, having spoken it from childhood, and
decided much in France when preceptor to a young noble-
man. Afather desirousot procuring lor his son a healthy
and comfortable residence, and at the same time a souND
EDUCATION, whether for professional or commercial pur-
suits, would fiad this an opportunity not olten occurring.

NOTE.-It has been suggested that parents would per
haps prefer their sons on the Island of New York, if so,
in the event of six pupils being secured to me for one year
from 1st b.ay next, r have no objection to remove' my
school to some healthy location,mnot more than eight or ten
miles from 'he City Hall. Mr. James|Monioe, whose son
has been under my tuition during toe pastyear, has kindly
offered to attend to any communication addressed to him
in New York. I. S. 013 3td&2awtf
SOTICE -Tlie Principal ot this Institution, grateful
for the very general approbation with which his plan has
been received, begs leave again to bring it to the notice of
that portion of the public who desire for thdir sons a
sound, practical, and christianeducation.
Second Year.-The second term 'of the second year of
the Institute will commence on Thurs lay the first of No-
vembet next, and wi-h materially extended facilities in al
most every department. Essential additions have been
made, especially in the department of Modern Languages.
The instruction in Freuch particularly is the best that could
be secured.
Buildings.-The buildings for the Institute are now all
completed, and were erected for the purpose to which they
are devo:'.ed. They are new, spacious, andsightly; and are
fitted up on a convenienrce of plan, and a neatnessof style,
which are not exceeded. Theyf comprise accommodations
for fifty pupils, rooming in pairs-fot the Instruct, is-
the Principal and the family-a General SchoolRoom-Re
citationRboms-a Readingi Room-a Laboratory-and a
Location.-The location is unsurpassed for healthiness
and beauy. It is upon an eminence in the suburbs of the
city, securing, b, Its retirement and elevation, a free and
healhy atmosphere, *and commanding an extensive and
delightful view. It is such as to render it unnecessary for
the pupils to have any connection with the city, except,
when occasionally permitted by the principal, for social
interc.,urse, and purnosea of business.
,Grounds.-The Grounds connected with the establish-
ment are ample and beautiful, affording full scope for tel
creation atia amusement.
Teachers.-The Institution is carried on by the Princi
pal, and assistants of character and experience in the pro
Design.-Its design Is, to impart a thorough and prac
tical education, upon decidedly christian piinciples-
unite sound learning with pure religion.
Plan and Government.-It Is conducted upon the plan
of a well regulated Chri-tian family ; for the time, the
adopted homeofits members.
The Principal, regarding himself in the place of a pa
rent, encourages a fr-e and open intercourse between the
pupils ai.d himself, and endeavors, by winning upon the
affections, and, by the presentation of proper motives, to
induce a faithful discharge of duty. The government is
therefore strictly parental. 1
arrangement.-In agreement with the natural constlt,
tution os the pupil the school is arranged In three depart
ments, the Moral, thelntellectual, and the Physical
Moral Department.--TheMoral Department, which in-
volves the government is supplied by the Principal. It em]
braces a course of moral and religious studies, adapted to
each pupil. To the Holy Scriptures constantreferenceis
made, as the foundation on which alone may be built a
solid and enduring character, and as the only sale and pro.
per basis of Christian education. The views of scripture
tru'h, and of religious duty presented, are in strict ac
zordance with the doctrines, discipline, and worship of the
Protestant Episcoral Church. It is the constant endea
vor in this department to win over to the Saviour, and

Intellectual Department.--The Intellectual Depart
aent embraces all the ordinary English branches neces
vary to business and commercial pursuits ; additional fa|
ciliLies for instruction in the higher departments of learn-
ing, with reference to College requirements, to Teaching,
the Professions, and Civil Engineering ; also in Vocal Mu[
sic, Drawing, and the Modern Languages. It is conduct.
ed by the Principal and assistants, and by such a.. sters
as it is necessary trom time to time to emvloy,

Instruction in this department is specially directed to the
understanding. Il is the endeavor here to improve and
strengthen the thinking powers. The pupihs, therefore,
are taught the rationale of whatever comes before them ;
more attention is paid to principles than rules. Particular
regard is had to the intended future destination of the pu
pil, and his education is directed accordingly. He may
be fitted for the Counting Room, tor Engineering, for Col
lege, for Tl'eaching, or for the study of the Professions.
Physical Department.-The Physical Department is
intended for exercise and health. It is superintended al.-
ways by a master,-who has the supervision and direction
)f the pupils in all hours not taken up in the exercises of
he school, and instructs in agreeable and useful exercises,
promorive of health and happiness.
Manners and Habits.-Special attention is paid to man
ners and habits. Association with the family, and with
ocasional company, is, for their improve e n t,eneouraged.
t is the endeavor to prepare the pupil to move with pro-
priety and ease in every circle ol society:
Requirements.-The admission of pupils is restricted to
no particular age. But diligent attention to the perform.
ance of duties, an, propriety of deportment, are expected
of all who become members of the institution.
"-Record and Reports.-A daily record of the deficien
cies ot pupils in their several classes is kept by each teach
er, which is weekly submitted by the principal to each pu
Vi) ; and, at the expiration of four weeks, to the parents or
guardians of each, in the form of a report.
Pocket Money.-Pupils have but little reasonable'juse
or pocket money) They are supplied by the principal
with ail necessaries, and more than these serve only to
create and nourish artificial tastes and wants,which have
an unfavorable bearing on future character., They will,
therefore, be allowed no money, but at the pleasure of the
principal. This rule is imperative, and, enforced, saves ex
pense to the parent and character tothe pupil. The Pur
ser takes charge of all moneys intended for the use of the
pupils, and distributes only on an order from the principal.
No accounts will in any case, be made for the pupils, nor
vill aoy expenditures be incurred for them,further than the

T"i- PROHmITION or SMALL BiLs. once deemed
the shibboleth of democracy, is now renounced by
all men- Bank democrats and Loco Foco demo-
crats-.all but Mr. Young of the Senate, and one
or two of his echoes, concur in repealing the exist.
ing restrictions.
We have no doubt that the people of this State
have declared themselves in favor of this repeal
with unusual unanimity, and, therefore-as, after
all,the war against small bills was an experiment-
we do not see how the Legislature could have act.
ed otherwise than they have done. Each House,
indeed, has vied with the other in efforts to get rid
of the obnoxious law.
We do not now mean t6 make the sudden
change of front of the democracy on this question
a matter of reproach; but rather to'hold up this
case as one from which the useful caution may be
derived, not to mingle politics-party politics espe-
cially-with questions affectingg the currency and
business of the count, y.
On. the general proposition-that of restricting
bank notes to sums of and over five dollars-we
are yet, as from the beginning we have been;
among the doubters. Some advantages there may
be in such restriction, in the way of safety to the
poor man, and as rendering necessary a larger sup.
ply of small coin for daily use; on the other hand,
convenience, and especially the evil of legislating
at all in matterse.where the public are quite compe-
tent to take care of themselves, would seem op.
posed to anfy. such. regulations. But when the law
had been once made, we were content that it
should be fairly tried. This, however, the
suspension of specie payments, and the in-
flux-by reason of the prohibition on our banks
to issue small bills-of the small bills from
other places, defeated-; and- the law, there-
fore-experimental as it confessedly was-has
been abolished-not because it either failed of, or
accomplished, its anticipated efforts, but because,
-owing to other and overwhelming causes, it could
n6ot be executed without exceeding inconvenience
and loss. '
As a fact, therefore, upon which to reason in
any future discussion concerning the expediency
or inexpediency of prohibiting small notes, we do
not took upon the experiment here as deciding any
thing beyond the pliancy of the party.

[From the .National Gazette of Saturday']
Within a few days past we noticed certain reso-
lutions.passed by the L-gislature of North Caro-
lina, declaratory of the opinions of the people of
that State upon the principles and course of the
National Administration. They concisely and
lucidly set forth the errors and corrupt measures
of the President and his predecessor, and concluded
with this resolution, which the Governor was di-
rected to transmit to Senators-Brown and Strange.
S "Resolved, That odr Senators in Congress will
represent the wishes of a majority of the people of
this State by voting to carry out the foregoing
These gentlemen, both Van Buren men, becom-
Sing alarmed at the operation of the instructive
doctrine, upoa their tenure of office, addressed

WASHINGTON CITY, Dec. 31, 1838.
To the Hon. the General .suembly of .N. C.
Gentlemen-Having learned, from unofficial
sources, which, howiever,-- cave no doubt upon
our minds of thecrrectneat of their informa-
tion, that certain resolutions- have passed your
honorable bodies expressive 'of the opinions of
a majority of each.of them upon political mat-
ters, some of which have hben1-and others still are,
pending before the country, we'have been induced
to a nticipate their coming to hand, and *respectful-
ly address you concerning them. .
.n tus anticipaling the reception of a copy of
theesol uitons through an official channel, we trust
that an apology will be tound in the information
we hive received of the intention of the Legisla-
tureto adjourn at an early day.
The resolutions do not expressly instruct us to
carry into effect the opinions expressed therein;
nor are we able to perceive in them impitedly, any
authoritative command, such as instructions, con-
We -are- therefore, left to infer that it was the
intention of the General Assembly not to assert or
exercise the right of instruction, from the absence
of the mandatory terms hbeetofore used when the
General Assembly of North Carolina has thought
p' opera, to resort to it.
The ground heretofore occupied by us is wholly
unchanged, and scarcely needs recapitulation. We
have publiclyaeclared that whenever instructions
are.given us by the Legislature, we wil! either obey

therm or resign.
We therefore respectfully ask of your honora-
ble bodies if we err in our construction of the re.-
solutions, that we may be set right in time to act
as becomes the position in which we stand. With
a view to prevent any misrepresentation of our moe.
tives, we disclaim any intention of disrespect to
the Legislature, considering it not only a duty to
ourselves thus respectfully to make this request,
but that we owe it to the people of the State of
North Carolina, whose interests have been confided
to us in the Serte of the United States.
We have the honor to be, with respect, your
obedient servants, BSDFORD BRowN,
Upon the receipt of this communication the Sen-
ate and House of Commons of North Carolina pass-
Aed.this resolution:
"Resolved, That the Resolutions passed by this
General Assembly, and transmitted to our Sena-
tors in Congress, are sufficiently plain and intelli-
gible to be comprehended by any one desirous of
understanding them ; that we believe this commu-
nication, anticipating the reception of said resolu-
tions, and making inquiry as to their meaning, is
not in good faith ; a'nct that it would be inconsis-
tent with the self-respect of this General Assem-
bly to make any reply to it."
We have always believed the doctrine of Sena-
torial instruction, whether direct or indirect, as
wholly unwarranted by the spirit of the Constitu-
tion, and generally pernicious in practice. Let
thove, however, who .acknowledge the right of
State Legislatures' to control the United States
Senate, take the consequence of its exercise.

We find in the Savannah Georgian, the follow-

ry, Jan. 5.
By the Tampa Express, which came in last
night, we learn that there aie upwards of 200 In-
dians at Fort Brooke. As soon as Captain Aber.
crombie arrives, the emigration will commence.
His arrival is shortly expected. Report says that
there is a large body of Indians in the Ocklowaha
Sswamp,' full of fight.' Col. Twiggs and staff leave
to day for Silver Spring, twelve miles from Fort
Butler, and if favored, may hope to indulge in the

due to the functions and responsibility of the Minis-
ters. It is fortunate for any cabinet to have such
aid. The dynasty and government being so often
at stake, he may be excused if he does not yield
his convictions on points of policy and proprosi-
tions of enterprise, which have an aspect of pri-
mary importance.
The Tiers party proclaimed that he was elect .
ed, not because but although he was a Bourbon; all
the present tOpposition, except the Royalists, exult.
ed in the idea that legitimacy was.excluded. Ha was
chosen as an efficient head for the state, whose
Royal blood and connexions, and whose abilities,
and moderate, yet resolute spirit, might reconcile,
more or less, the foreign monarchical powers to the
Revolution of July, and secure external and gen-
eral tranquillity for France. A cypher on the new
throne may have betn desired by some of the fac.-
tions; but it was the ,very reverse that the majo-
rity of the deputies and the nation looked to in his
person. And the character in which he was eager-
ly preferred at the outset, has been ever since as
necessary for the original ends.
The frequentchanges in the French ministry are
not ascribable to Louis Philippe; dissensions
among the Ministers or difficulties with the Cham-
ber of Deputies occasioned them. In one instance,
certainly, he did resist the President of his Council,
Thierv; and then his resistance was moat saluta-
ry. I refer the question of armed intervention
in the Spanish civil war. Whatever may be states
in the London papers to the contrary, all enlight.
ended opinion here continues to approve his policy
of abstinence. In Chateaubriand's book on the
Congress of Verona, is a letter dated January 27Lh
1823, from Mr. Canning to the Viscount, then o
the French cabinet, containing these sentences-
"Letve the Spanish Revolution to burn itself ou
within its own crater. You have nothing to ap.
prehend from the eruption, if you do not open
channel for the lava through the Pyrenees." Bet
ter would it have been for Spain and France, i
the French Government had then followed th
counsel of the British statesman.
The expediency, for France and the Govern
ment of July, of leaving the new Spanish civil wa
to exhaust itself, has become stronger and mor
manifest. The present monarchy of France ha
no armies and treasures, nor chances, to cast away
nor any th;ng to fear from any issue in Spain
The more that is seen or any way known of th
character and tendencies of the war, the plainer i
becomes that no ultimate good could be achieved
by going to fight for either party. We may smir
at a remark so sapient as that of orator Shiel
made in the British House of Commons, last win
ter. Louis Philippe should not forget that whei
Don Carlos shall enter the Escurial, he himself mus
make his exit through aback door of the Tuile
ries." Those who have better opportunities of un-
derstanding the situation of Louis Philippe, believe
that he would be, in that event, stronger at home
If the Legitimists in France, with or without for.
eign succor, should make a movement or demon
station against him, he could rally at once tc
himself the great mass of the national force, anc
triumph with double advantage.
At this time, very few of the French heed the
details of Spanish politics and battles. There is
s,,rft nf mutiiual massacre. and rnthlea.a s .suhali.;,

Undeniably, there is vory good human material
- in Spain : no region is more favored by nature
r not a few of her prominent politicians are qualified
and patriotic, such as the De Rosas, Torrenos
e Galianos, Arguelles. But every valuable posses-
s sion, every natural advantage, every lesson of ex-
; p ri nee, seems to be irremediably $parred. Ou
now celebrated countryman, Mr. Prescott, in th
Preface to his excellent Histoiy of the Reign o
e Ferdinand and Isabella, breathes confident antici
t p nations of happy results to the present gloomy
d ea isisinSpdn. "Clouds and darkness," he ob

t guided her reign to so prosperous a termination
- may carry the nation safe through its present perils

abandon his atrocious system of shooting all the
Christino prisoners that fall into his power, and
treate i.An.bhy-.way of reprisals:tao adopt-aaimilar
system towards the Cailiat prisoners taken by the
Christinos. (See the curious letter in the Journal
des Debats of this day.) Why, the system has
been always the same : inexorable vengeance, as
well as insatiable rapine-indiscriminate havoc
every where. The Carlists style Cabrera, the
great General of the age." Espartero addresses
his troops as "companions of glory." Neither
possesses qualities beyond those of a skilful and
popular partisan leader. No General of a superior
cast has yet appeared,-otherwise the end of the
struggle could be foreseen. Van Halen, lately
appointed" Commander.in-Chief of the Armies of
the Centre," is deemed the ablest. The share
which he had in the Belgian revolution, and his
publications respecting himself, may be remem.
bered in the United States. His present elevation
by the widow of Ferdinand forms a marvellous
contrast with his treatment under tha t monarch,
as described in his Narrative of Don Juan Van
Halen's Imprisonment in the dungeons of Madrid,
and his Escape in 1817 and 1818." He is of Bel-
gic origin, but born in Spain, in the isle of Leon,
in 1790. His life abounds with interesting adven-
tures and extraordinary "turns of fate below."
He resided for some time in New York, and his
wife, a sister of the celebrated General Quiroga, in
Philadelphia, is in extreme poverty.
The Trias Cabinet just made up at Madrid, is
an absolute caput mortuum. The Duke de Ti ias
has never been distinguished by talents. It is not
long since he was compelled to return to his own
country, on account of his debts in Paris. We
have here specimens of the Spanish Bourbons, in
the younger brother of Don Carlos,-Don Fran-
cisco de Paulo and his wile and children. The pa-
rents are as little noble and intelligent in their fa.
ces and port as possible ; the children be ir ;hem a
most faithful resemblance. "The Dukes of Cadiz
and Seville,"sons of Francisco, have been placed
in the College of Henry 4th, in Paris, to pursue
their studies with the two sons of Louis Philippe.
Some good may accrue to Spain from this educa-
tion. At the University of Bonn, Professor Schle-
gel mentioned to me that, in his class, w re then
six Princes, sons of-reigning sovereigns, who fared
in the institution just as the rest of the students.
A few days ago an eminent Spaniard begged
me to remark, that Don Francisco had "the fea-
tures of a monkey with the expression of a hog."
I have made inquiries concerning Don Carlos, of
Spaniards who know him personally and thorough-
ly. They depict him as a man of ordinary intel-
lect and information ;. without vices or malignant
dispositions; bigoted in his notions of religion
and legitimacy, and extremely pertinacious in his
opinions and aims. If he should be crowned at
Madrid, Spain will b. scarcely nearer to pacifica
lion. Were French armies t-, enter Madrid and
determine the triumph of the Christinos, they must
remain, in order to prevent what would speedily
happen-a renewal of the desperate struggle.-
The parties hate and distrust each other so much,
that either would abuse power and opportunity to
the utmost, in the treatment of the other.
The British have experienced such a return, and
rendered so little real service, as auxiliaries of the
Christinos, that it seems doubly bold and selfish in
the Whig politicians to rail against the circumspect
policy of-Louis Philippe, and still urge the mission
of a French army across the Pyrenees. The fate
of the British L',gion, under Sir Lacy Evans, the
miserable remnant of whom are now begging in
the streets of London, is too notorious to ne, d from
me more than an indication. How another band
of foreign combatants for the cause of the Q.ueen
has been requited, may be learnt from the follow-
ing authentic paragraph:
"A letter of the 1st Oct. from Valencia repre-
sents the situation of the foreign corps, called the
Chasseurs of Oporto, commanded by General Bor-
so, and- consisting pri-incipally of Belgians and Ital-
ians,as most deplorable. The regiment had fought
most gallantly in a variety of engagements, par-
ticularly at the siege of Morella, and had been re-
duced from 1,600 to 800 men, 300 of whom were
invalided in consequence of wounds received in
the service of Spain. Notwithstanding their zeal
and the privations they had undergone, the men of
the corps were left in a state of utter destitution,
and allowed literally to beg in the streets of Mur-
viedro, for they had been expelled the city of
Valencia. During two months of their campaign
the soldiers had received but ten days' pay, and
the officers none at all."
I must be permitted to quote in illustation of this
historical topic, some passages of a debate which
occurred in the British House of Commons in
March last. r
Lord Elliot said, If a country could not assert
its own independence, or regain its own liberty, it
was not worthy of liberty."
Mr. Cutler Fergusson said, The great object
of the treaty had been to secure the stability of
the Spanish Monarchy, by establishing Qlueen Isa-
bella upon the throne of that country."
Lord JMahon said, We had given arms and
ammunition to the Spanish Government to the
amount of' 537,0001, besides stores from the ships
, themselves in commission. This expense could be

altogether little short of one million sterling, which
would have been quite enough to keep up the yeo-
manry corps of England,.a corps which his side of
s the House deemed of the highest importance; It
. wasclear that England h would now put the question, as to what benefit
' Srain had derived from the course itursu' d ?"

The North River is open to Verplanck's Point,

city at 8 o'clock, A. M.

THa WEATHER.-The weather for the past few
days has been delightful, and Saturday reminded
us of early spring. The thermometer on that day
ranged as high as 70. Chesnut street was alive
with all 'hat was gay and beautiful. The river
from Arch street down, thanks to the weather and
the Ice-boat, is open, and many vessels have ar-
rived. We must anticipate more severe weather
before the winter closes, but such relaxations as
this render a fresh starring. point from which to set
out till we are again benumbed.-[Philad. Star ]

THE CoRSAIR.-This is the name of a new week-
ly, which Mr. .V'. P. Willis and Mr. Porter are
about to issue here.
The Prospectus, which is certainly not in the ac-
customed style, and none the worse for that- will
speak for itself.

The Lectures on Chemistry, at the New York
Lyceum, commence this evening. A gratuitous
introductory Lecture will be delivered by Doctor
Torrey, whose well known ability, and familiarity
with this subject, as well as his talent as a lecturer,
offer great inducements both to the regular student
and to the general reader. The experiments will
be numerous and interesting.

FINE STOREs.-Among.the improve ments of the
times, those made in Stores deserve a passing no-
tice. We have frequently observed the fipe row
recently erected in the vicinity of our office, on the
ground formerly occupied by the Scotch Presby-
terian Church, in Cedar, near Nassau street. They
appear particularly well built and finished, with
iron doors and shutters, front and rear, in which are
small squares of glass, to show any light within, (a
precaution we have not before observed, and which
is worthy of the attention of the Fire Department.)
Situated as these Stores are, so near the public
offices and centre of business, and being large and
well lighted, they must be very eligible and de-
sirable for Dry Goods Jobbers, or Importers, or in-
deed for any mercantile business. Arches are
sprung on every floor, and they can all be thrown
into one.
UPPER CANADA.-The Court Martial at Kings.
ton has been adjourned until the 26th of February,
on account of the condition of the wounded prison-
ers, nine of whom were in the hospital, unfit to be
removed. The two prisoners who were to have
been executed on the 4th, have been respited.
The Chronicle gives the following account of the
prisoners taken into Kingston and Fort Henry :-

By the schooner Henry Clay we have received
Tampico papers of the 8th and 12th of last month,
ane make such translations as time will permit.
There is published a correspondence between
the federal General, Urrea, and the Government
chief, Canalizo, from which it appears that both
parties in Mexico are equally resolved to resist ag-
gression or invasion from France.
It appears that General Urrea and his federal
adherents remained undisturbed masters of Tam-
TAMPICO, December 12.
We learn by a private conduct, that the cities
of Tula and Rio Verde have declared in favor of
the re-establishment of the federal Constitution ol
It is reported here that the city of Guadelaxara
has also declared for the federal system.
It is further asserted that Ganeral Canalizo has
abandoned his army in this vicinity in the greatest
distress, and gone to join Gen. Filosolo, who was
also flying from Matamoras, his troops having de.
cleared for the federal system.
P. S.-A letter from Victoria, received at Tam.

A foe we do not see-
Go roll the drum, and wind the horn,
And tell him here are we.
In Idle strength we watch a prey
That lurkasby marsh and fen:
But should he strike our lines to day
SOh let us die like men.
Tie not to right a kinsman's wrongs
With bristling ranks we come ;-
Our sister's ring their evening songs
Far in a peaceful home.
f We battle at our country's call
The savage in his den:
If in such struggle we must fa!l,
Oh! let us die like men.
Remember, boys, that mercy's dower
IS life to-him who yields
Remember, that the hand of power
Is strongest when it shields.
Keep honor like your sabres, bright;
Shame coward fear-and then,
If we MUST perish in the fight,
Oh let us die like men.

particulars of a case of mutiny, which took place on
board the brig New York, of Harpswell, (Maine,)
Abel Goodrich, master. Said vessel was from
Boston, bound to Wilmington, N. C. On Satur-

down by one of the men named Joseph, and so
much injured that he is supposed to be mortally
wounded. Said Joseph also attacked the man at
the helm; but the latter crying out murder," the
mate and residue of the crew came to his assistance,
and succeeded in securing Joseph, by putting him
under hatches and barring them down. The brig
arrived at Ocracoke on Monday, 31st December.

NARROW E cApE.-The mail stage left Catskill
for Albany at 8 o'clock yesterday morning upon
the river,.contrary to the adv ce and express wish
of the passengers. The driver was repeatedly
warned of its insecurity, but persisted in driving on
until within eight miles of this city, when the ice
gave way, and the stage, horses and ten passenger s
were precipitated into the river.. By the timely aid
of persons from the shore, and the courageous zeal
of one or two passengers, who secured an early
footing upon the ice, they were all saved. The es-
cape appears little short of a miracle to those pres-
ent. The ice was only between two and, three
inches in thickness, and very rotten. An hour
previous, Mr. Taylor of this city lost a team with-
in thirty feet of the place, and our driver was warn-
ed by the inhabitants not to proceed a step further.
So confident were they of our breaking in, that they
followed along to watch and assist us.

i Literature, Dramatic News and Criticism, Fashion
and Novelty.
N. P. WILLIS and T. 0. PORTER propose to issue
weekly in the city of New-York, a paper of the above
designation and character. It Is their design to present as
amusing'a periodical as can be made from the current wit,
humor, and literature of the time: to collect the spirit not
only of English, but of French and German belles Icttres :
Sto give dramatic criticisms with vigilant impartiality and
care: in short to picture the age in its literature and
fashion, its eccentricities and'amusemei.ts.
As the piraticallaw of copy-right secures to them, free
of expense, the labors of Bulwer and Boz, Scribe and
*Balzac, with the whole army of foreign writers, they
cannot at present.(consistently with the pocket wisdom so
well understood by American Publishers) offer any thing
for American productions. Their critical department, how.
ever, will be always on the alert for native literature, and
to the best of their ability they will keep a running gauge
Sof the merits of compatriot authors.
They see their way very clear Jythont crowding upon
the track of any weekly peiodical, and abstaining from
.. more particular professions, they take leave to assure
their friends, that itf the harvest of event, wit, genius and
poetry, fail not over the world, they can hardly fail to fur-
nlsh.them with an agreeablepaper.

many instances, remodelled, re-wiitten, and condensed
