sion of the State Legislature, and is now placed upon
a more satisfactory and more permanent footing.

as to inspire confidence and merit patronage.

Principal, the Rev. W. F..WALKER, will give to the
School his constant superintendence.
" Much has hitherto been sacrifided to bring this In-
stitution to its present State, and- secure the facilities
it now offers for imparting a thorough and Christian
education, which it is hoped a Christian public will so
appreciate as. to extend a continuance and increase of
its patronage.
NeW and ample provision has been made for thor-
oughly warming the rooms, both public mid private, so
as to render them. perfectly comfortable fi the coldest
weather. Those interested are invited to -call and
look at the various apartments, in the course of the
next week, previous to the opening:
The next, or Fall Term, will commence on Friday,
Nov. 1st. The Teachers will then all be at their
posts, and the School be organized at 9 o'clock, A. M.
It is very desirable that pupils should be present punc-
tually at the opening.

aly orthrough the post office, or to JOHN W. MITCH-

This Institution is exclusively a Boarding School
for young gentlemen. The number being limited to
thirty, enables the Principal to combine in his system
every advantage of education, with a truly parental
attention to the comforts, manners, and morals of the
pupils entrusted to his care
Circumstances have drawn the attention of the
principal to a mode of tuition, which is intended to
thoroughly ground the pupil in the elementary branches
of solid practical learning, by adapting the studies to
the particular capacities of the children, and only per-
mitting them to advance, as their capabilities are de-
veloped for the higher departments of learning taught
in the School, which comprise a thorough classical and
English education, necessary to prepare the student
for college or mercantile life.
The situation of the School is perfectlyhealthy, and
combines every advantage requisite for such an estab.-

If sound learning, without pedantry, a frankavow-

often vilified, because they are misunderstood and un-

have made the standards of his church more valuable
to those who receive them, and more accessible to
those who are ignorant concerning them, and to have
furnished their history and a commentary, without the
tediousness of the one or the dulness of the ether; if
to have embodied in a few pages, and sometimes
lines, the spirit of the works of Hooker, Barrow,
Comber, Bmiham and Palmer; if to have mingled
without confusion antiquarian lere/and modern ob-
servation, theoretical *discussion and practical direc-

[From the Nationat Intelligencer.] |

PARIS, October 27,1839.
Towards the end of July last, just as 1 was about
to begin upon the ample materials which I had
collected or a regular correspondence with your
estimable journal, I experienced a dangerous fall
in the street, 'and, within a few days aftei, a se-
vere illness. As soon as I was able to bear the mo-
tion of a carriage, I undertook, as the best means
of recovery, a journey to Vichy, the principal wa-
tering-place of France, north of the Springs of the
Pyrenees. I visited several other fashionable re-
sorts of the kind, which, though very interesting in
every reseet, have never, to my knowledge, been
descrn f.t by any foreign traveller. My notes upon
them and the districts and cities through which I-
passed, are reserved for a distinct communication.
After examining leisurely the heart of this fine
country, I proceeded to the city of Tours, thence
went by the banks of the Loire, through Saumur
.and Angersi to Nantz, and returned to Tours,
where I passed a month. Once more in Paris, I
have selected a position particularly favorable for
observation and inquiry as your correspondent.-
Six weeks of almost daily journeying over several of
the Departments most gifted by Nature,and adorned
With the most remarkable cities and monuments,
have much enriched my stock of memoranda con-
cerning the interior of France. Among such scenes
and objects, in the summer and autumn the capital
was aot regretted, and might well be nearly for-
The season for Paris, however, fairly dates from
the commencement -of November, and continues
tfntil May or June. We shall soon have the char-
Sateristic bustle and overflow, all the excitements
and attractions in full power, while the country or
Sthe provinces lose much of their general charm, and
become comparatively dull and otherwise uncom-
SDuring my month of quiet sojourn at Tours, I
made myself acquainted with the romantic history,
rich statistics, and worthy people of Tourraine,
one of the most beautiful, fertile, and temperate
regions of the earth. What rides and walks,
what landscape, what fruits and flowers If the
Yankee race had inhabited the banks of the Loire
and the Cher for the fifty or twenty years past,
how they would have multiplied the products of
the soil and animated the rivers! Nantz is truly
a noble city, and, in its connection with our Revo-
lutionary history, possesses a special importance
for an American rambler. I may say emphatically
that I enjoyed there the hospitality and discourse
of James Grahame, who has so ably and fondly
treated our Colonial story in his comprehensive
work. He resides at Nantz in elegant literary
leisure; his studies and spirit are all American;
his character and habits are such as should render
us proud of his enthusiasm in our favor.
The foreign commerce of Nantz gives it an air
of real business and general activity ; but there is
no French inland town which shows a pervading
and exciting life The population of Tours
(which is the capital of a thickly-settled depart-
ment, and the seat of its Government,) does not
fall short of thirty thousand; the English resi-
dents are numbered at two thousand; it abounds
i. with domestic .and foreign luxuries; it forms an
entrepot for m toch of the trade of the broad Loire ;
it i one of the great thoroughfares of the public
and private travelling to the south-west. Yet a
month's sojourn there impressed me more than I
had ever been with the utter contrast between
p:ovincidl and metropolitan existence in France,
with the relative torpor of the first even under the
circumstances most favorable to animation. The
aspect and effect of Paris--an immense whirlpool,
ever in the liveliest or most violent motion in al-
most every part--could not be made more sensible
than by a visit to Bourges, the ancient capital of
Berni, where Don Carlos, the fugitive Pretender of
Spain, has been lodged by the French Government.
I passed a day and a half there, last month, admir-
ing the glories of the ancient cathedral, the magni-
'ficence and site of the public walks, and the dignity
Sof maniiy of the streets ; but equally struck, at the
Sarme time, with the silence and loneliness of the
est' qu .ters. Its population is about twenty thou-
sand, while 4t qould well accommodate thrice or.
queadripa thb tuarber.
Fronfpersonal observation and inquiry, and an
examination of the rovincial newspapers far and
wide, I infer that the wjpe~crop of this yusr is about
average in quaritity, asupeanr in quality. M.lch
. of it will ual thbatrf 48-ewooodthat the deal- ,
era pasdI for it all :tt, they now sell. The

far, politically, from auy sedition, tumult, or con-

S' Th capital is tranquil at this moment, and the
recent capture ef Blanqui, their most active and
funmidable among the contrivers and leaders of the

inerrqction in May last, is an important advantage
for the authorities ; but an incessant and ubiquitous
viglance of the police and the large military guard
(which has been doubled since May) is absolutely
retired and duly exercised for the preservation of
the public peace. The Republican writers avail
:: themselves to the utmost of every topic fitted to
iWfla r the milliono. The high price of bread is
now the most operative amongst the causes of dis-
Sffection an disorder. If this should continue, or

witnem disturbances and bloodshed. The Govern-
ment, however, Is so strong* in its large military

that it must prevail in the contest easily, and in a

Z otht ended in Spaip. The Carlist cause may
forever, but the 'elements remain of the
most serious dissension and strife. It is not at all
probable that Dof Carlos, who is in fact a prison-

I have no doubt that the five great Powers are
agreed upon the question of Turkey and Egypt,
and that whatever they determine must be done,
whether by Christian or Pagan states, in any quar-
ter of the old hemisphere.
Every day we receive from the Paris press an
exuberance of Oriental news by letters, and so
forth; the writers would seem to know all that
passes in the most secret councils of the Europe-
an Diplomatic corps, and even in the breasts of the
Turkish and Egyptian Pachas. The greater part
of all this correspondence, as well as the volumi-
nous and very circumstantial communications from
Russia, Germany, and Spain, is concocted at Pa-
ris. I might say the same of the Eastern and
Spanish correspondence of the principal London
papers. The Augsburg Gazette is the source of
copious news and anecdote from the East and the
North ; some articles distinguished by a cross to
indicate an official origin Europe cannot boast of
a more prolific and audacious laboratory of fiction.
You may note a practice of the Paris Opposi-
tion writers-not without its kin' in other countries
than France-that of assuming that the Govern-
ment means to try some particular measure, (the
most invidious which the writers can devise,) and
then expatiating upon it in terms of the bitterest
patriotic indignation. For example, we now learn
that the Ministry mean to propose to the Cham-
bers a national endowment, appanage or rotation,
for the Duke de Nemours; that Marshal Soult has
resolved to liberate at once Don Carlos; that
agents and money go from Bourges to the head-
quarters of Cabrera, with the connivance of the
French Cabinet, &c. The London editors echo
these stories, and add theiC own animadversions ;
and some of the Paris correspondents of the Ame-
rican papers are not overscrupulons in repeating as
certain or probable both the foreign and domestic
The negotiations between the French and Brit-
ish Cabinets for a commercial treaty, or rather a
more liberal scheme of tariff, are about to be re-
sumed. One of the English Commissioners
named is an able man-Mr. Gregor, of Canadian
memory. It is not probable that any important
changes will be accomplished. A keen political
and commercial jealousy still prevails between the
two Governments and countries. A clear percep-
tion, however, of common interest has united them
entirely on the Spanish, Turkish, and Russian
The recognition of the Constitutional Govern-
ment of Spain by the King of Holland is a signi-
ficative and pregnant event, because that monarch
would not have taken such a step without the as-
sent of Russia, Austria, and Prussia. These
Powers supported Don Carlos chiefly because
they dreaded democratic anarchy or institu-
tions in Spain, for which his success was to be
the surest preventive or remedy. That success
being now nearly hopeless, they have the same
motive for strengthening the Government of the
Queen. The question of legitimacy is saved in
the one as well as the other case. Cabrera, it
seems, has organized a Supreme Junta, to act in
the name and stead of Don Carlos, with an Arch-
bishop as its chief; but it is nearly impossible that
the contest should be long formally and regularly
The leading French Legitimists have made pil-
grimages to Bourges to condole with Don Carlos,
and concert with his privy council the restoration
of his fortunes. No conduct could be more im-
prudent in relation to their o.wn cause in France.
If the French Government has wished 'to get rid
of the Spanish representative of pure royalty, it is
from the apprehension that Bourges would, become
the focus of LegitimisA intrigues against the Or-
leans dynasty.
A, Bonapartean journal, entitled Le Capitole,
was established in the metropolis last spring. It
has been edited with remarkable vigor and hardi-
hood, and furnishes curious historical and bio-
graphical documents from the portfolios of mem-
bers or votaries of the' family. It strenuously ad-
vocaltes the Russian alliance for France, and would
impress upon the world the,idea that the Emper-
or Nifhoas wishe; U'e reinstatement of the Na-
poIen. dynasty. I opine that no other living man
"is the subject of so much misrepresentation a the
Autocrat. Le Capisole wages its fierce '\vrfare
upon' the present dynasty' and administration of
France by daily comparisons with, the men, mea-
sures, influences, and occurrences under the Na-'
poleon rule, as well as by positive criticism and in-
vective. You know that" Prince Napoleon Louis
Bonaparte" recently put forth a pamphlet entitled
Des Idies Napoloniennes, to concur with one part
of the Capitole's tactics-that of exalting or ca-
nonizing the Imperial rule in all its features, pur-
poses, and works. Supposing this to be really the
Prince's performance, I would give him credit for
more capacity than he is generally admitted to pos-
sess. All that Napoleon could be stated to have
conceived, suggested,'or achieved for the benefit of
France, is well digested and plausibly emblazoned
in the pamphlet. Cheap editions of it indifferent
forms have been printed'in Paris, and industri-

ously circulated throughout France. God only
knows what may not happen here; for myself, I
can discern no solid ground for the hope of a
Bonapartean restoration. A few days ago I en-
countered, and with much pleasure, Achille Murat,
who talks like a loyal citizen of our Republic, and
seeks information in order to turn it to account for
the general good.
It is believed that the present French Ministry
will soon set in motion lines of steamboats from
Havre and Bordeaux to the United States and
South America. New edifices and improvements
are without number in Paris. The Government
provides as much employment as possible to the
day-laborers, in order to avert commotions. The
Chambers make, every session, ample appropria-
tions for the same object-from the same motive.
The metropolis is constantly enlarged, cleared, and
embellished in every division.
Within the few months past, the theatres have
been enriched with and by a number of successful
pieces of the many descriptions of the French dra-
ma, and the period is signalized by several fortu-
nate debuts. Of these, the principal belongs to the
Italian Opera, where Pauline Garcia, sister of the
renowned Malibran, has appeared twice, with a
success nearly equal to what the latter ever ob-
tained. M'lle Rachel, the first of the..ragic he-
roines, has not yet returned to the boards of the
Theatre Francais. Casimir Delavigne has finished
for her a new tragedy, entitled La Fille du Cid-
the Daughter of the Cid.
Three articles on Mr. Prescott's admirable HIis-
tory of Ferdinand and Isabella have been'prepared
for the Journal des Debats by one of its ablest
contributors. The first will soon be extant. M.
de Beaumont's book on Ireland has gone to a third
edition. Count Mole is said (and I suppose truly)
to have completed Memoirs of the Napolean Times
and the Bourboi Restorations. They must prove
of the highest interest and authority, as no French
Statesmani-Talleyrand scarcely bxcepted-had
superior opportunities of knowledge in whatever
respect. But on this occasion I have not time nor
space for my proper literary report. I must re-
serve, also, my notes on the recent discoveries and

This Company are now conveying more than
one million two hundred thousand passengers per
annum on a railroad constructed by them, and kept
in order at their expense, from which it is obvious
that a great saving accrues to the City Treasury,
inasmuch as the same number of passengers con'
veyed in carriages, would subject the city to an in-'
creased expenditure to keep in repair the pave-
ments over which they would travel.

The first Session of the 26th Congress will be-
gin, according to law, to-day.
Whether the House of Representatives will suc-
ceed at once in organizing itself is very questiona-
ble. It seems certain that a systematic effort will
be made to exclude the Jersey Whig members from
their seats. The Trenton State Gazette, announ-
ces that Mr. Westcott, the Secretary of State, of
New Jersey, had left Trenton for Washington, to
aid in the intrigue of which the object is to nullify
the great seal of New Jersey."
The use to which it is supposed this pliant Se-
cretary is to be put, is, that he shall, as Secretary,
certify certain papers, purporting to be returns
from counties, which came casually into his hands,
which constitute no part of the records of his office,
and to which,, therefore, he cannot, rightfully, affix
the official seal.
The annexed extract, from the Newark Daily
Advertiser, explains this point fully :
We learn that the Secretary of State has usual-
ly, though not always, been the clerk of the Privy
Council, and that in the absence of any legal di-
rection as to the disposition which shall be made
of the returns from the several county clerks, after
they have been counted, they have been left in the
hanas of the clerk of the Privy Council. They
have thus been placed in the building occupied by
the Secretary of State, but they form no part of
the files of his office, and he has no more right or
authority to affix his official seal to them, than to
any of his private papers which he may find it con-
venient to keep there An attempt on his part to
give to copies of these returns any credit or au-
thority by attaching to them his official seal, would
be a fraud and a violation of duty, which, as it
strikes us, might well be the ground of impeach-
As clerk of the Privy Council he clearly has no
right to furnish copies of any papers in his custody,
without the direction of the Council. Its very
name (Privy Council) imports that its proceedings
and papers are not to be made public, and a clerk
who should undertake to do so, would justly sub-
ject himself to its severest censures. We are in-
formed from a source entitled to the fullest confi-
dence, that permission to give copies of these pa-
pers has neither been asked from, or granted by,
the Governor and Council, and therefore cannot
persuade ourselves that the Secretary of State who
acted as clerk last year, will take upon himself the
responsibility of giving them.
Notwithstanding the- doubt expressed by the
Newark paper, there seems too much reason to be-
lieve, that the Secretary, like the great prototype of
his party, is prepared to *" take the responsibility"
-and it remains to be seen what number of mem-
bers of the House of Representatives will under-
take to prefer,and give validity to the certificate, thus
obtained, over the regular legal commission, under
the great seal of the State, issued by the Governor
and the Council.
It is unfortunate at a juncture like this, when pre-
cedent seems to have lost all authority, that no law
exists for regulating the manner of organizing the
House of Representatives.
When the members meet on the floor of the
House, they are nobody, until organized by the
choice of a Speaker, They can enforce -no rules,
punish no contempt, nor protect their own rights
or dignity. They have no Sergeant-at-Arms, no
Doorkeeper, and so far as any lawful authority is
concerned, there is nothing to prevent any ruffians
that may choose to obtrude themselves, from occu-
pying the seats of the members themselves.
Heretofore, it is true, it has been the informal,
but unvarying, practice of the Clerk of the preced-
ing House, to take charge of the details of prepar-
ing the Hall for the reception of the Representa-
tives, employing temporary doorkeepers, &c., and
calling over the list of persons elected. The mem-
bers then elect a Speaker ; after which, both Speak-
er and members are sworn in, and then assume a
constitutional existence.

But we are now told, this practice, in so far as
calling over the names according to legal creden-
tials is concerned, is to be abandoned ; but if
abandoned in one point, it may be in all-and the
House of Representatives be thus turned into a
bear garden.
It is possible, and we earnestly desire that such
may be the result-that nothing of this sort will
occur, and that the House will be quietly organ-
ized. In that event, the message would be de-
livered tomorrow, and reach this city during the
night of the same day,-and be issued from this
office early on Wednesday morning.

THE COMING OF CoNGREss.-By yesterday af-
ternoon, out of the two hundred and forty-one
,members now composing the House of Represen-
tatives, about one hundred and seventy had arrived

But upon conversing with members of Congress
from the north, east and west, we cannot resist
the conviction that the nomination of Major Gene-

and NATHANiB'L P. TALLMADoK, of New York, for
Vice President, would be hailed with enthusiasm
by the mass of the people in those sections of coun-

of.that ticket, would secure the support of Maine,
New tork, Ohio, Illinois, and probably Virginia,
North Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, and Tennes-

Gen. Scott would make a good President. He

the storms along the Canadian frontier-HE is THE
MAN The same destiny which has made him the
chosen, the cherished defender of the Union against'
the threatening of external danger, points to him
as the hope of the people, the staff of the Repub-
lic, the defender of the Constitution, against the
fearful dangers impending within. His name is
familiar to the lips of the people-his deeds are
green in their memories-and with the stories of
is manly conduct and heroic patriotism, the old
and the middle aged have animated the evening
fireside of every hamlet in the Union, and kindled
a spirit in the hearts of American youth which
would burst into a sweeping blaze the first mo-
ment they should be called upon to shield and sup-
port a friend and benefactor of their country, so
gallant as General Scott. The young men of the
Republic will rally with enthusiasm around the
*man always victorious over the enemies of their
country-the oU and the prime know him to be a
patriot, and who shall prevent his being carried by
acclamation to the-iolm of civil government, where
one of his integrity, patriotism, and efficiency, is so
much needed ?

GoVlRNOR'S MEssAGz.-This is a dignified, sen-
sible and business-like document. The subjects
of the tariff, direct taxation, and the banking sys-
tem are debatable matters, but they are temperate-
ly treated. We would sooner adopt the minimum
of the existing tariff as a permanent- regulation,
than unsettle the question and involve the differ-
ent sections of the Union in another perilous con-
troversy. For direct taxation we have no relish-
we believe indirect taxation the only practicable
system for the support of the General Government,
and that nothing would tend more to bring it into
odium and endanger the Union, than for it to as-
sume the attitude of a general tax-gatherer. We
doubt much whether the monied evils of the times
are chargeable so much to any inherent vice of
the banking system," as to the improper tampering
with that system on the part of Government.
The removal of the deposits, the destruction of
the United States Bank, as a National Institution,
the consequent nullification of State Banks, and
the distribution of the surplus revenue, will, in a
great measure, account for our financial and com-
mercial embarrassments. The views ef his Ex-
cellency it relation to agriculture, education, the

of America vs. Isaac Morris. This was a libel of
seizure founded on the slave trade acts ; and the
facts as proven are in substance as follows:
The schr. Butterfly is American built, and sailed
from New Orleans in May last, to Havana, regu-
larly documented as an American vessel, w;th an
American crew. In June she changed her master,
(the prisoner becoming captain,) and shipped a new
crew, entirely Spanish and Portuguese, seven in
number. The master entered into a charter party
with a Spaniard, to carry a cargo to Principe, Isl-
and, or St. Thomas, and sailed with 14 other per-
sons, denominated passengers. The cargo con-
sisted of articles adapted to the African market,
and was such as would be taken in lawful trading
voyages, and the same also as would be necessary
in trafficking for slaves-it was all on the Spanish
manifest, and all but the materials for the water-
tanks on the English copy. The vessel was ar-
rested by the British brig Dolphin, and was sent to
this port for trial
She had on board planks and timber sufficient for
laying a slave deck, and these were in a situation
for putting up immediately; also a large boiler of
50 or 55 gallons capacity, just fitted to the cop-
pers, on removing the two small ones in ordinary
use; and she had up six large water-tanks, and
staves and materials in readiness for constructing
18 more ; being thus prepared in the manner usual
to vessels employed in the slave trade.
She was about 180 tons burthen, and would carry
250 slaves. The charter party was produced, and
the charterer who went out in the vessel, was ex-
amined for the prisoner. The cargo was to be
carried to the port of destination and discharged
for $3000, and the charterer had the privilege of
-detaining the vessel not exceeding thirty days at a
demurrage of $20 per day. No provision was
made for return freight; nor does it appear that the
master had funds or credit to purchase a cargo, or
that any other employment of the vessel was con-
templated than fulfilling the charter contract. The
charterer testified that the cargo was worth $30,-
000 in Havana, and was composed of articles ex-
pressly adapted to the African trade ; that one of
the passengers was a native of the Island of Prin-
cipe, and the other was a merchant there, who went
out to go into that business, but no account is
furnished of the'other passengers, oi the cause of
their being on board.
At the close of the testimony, Mr. Alexander
Hamilton, Jr., with whom was associated Mr. F.
B. Cutting, and Mr. P. Hamilton, for the accused,
made his maiden speech, and contended that the
decision of Judge Story in the case of the brig Al-
exander, William Booth, claimant, was;untenable.
Mr. Butler, the District Attorney, argued at
length in support of the views of Judge Story, in
the case of the brig Alexander, and contended
that the offence was complete if the vessel was
shown to have set out on her voyage with the in-
tent of being employed in the slave trade, though
no slave had ever been on board.
Mr. Cutting argued in support of the position
assumed-by Mr. Hamilton.
Judge Thompson said that notwithstanding this
Court might differ in its views from Judge Story,
comity required that it should not decide different-
ly-they both being circuit courts of equal juris-
diction, and therefore, as it was important that the
construction of these laws should be universally
understood, this Court had divided in opinion, on
the point in question, and had decided to send the
case to the Supreme Court on a certificate of a
difference of opinion.
It was then agreed by the counsel that the testi-
mony of the English witnesses should be taken in
writing, to be used in the trial of the cause, in case
a further trial should become necessary on a con-
firmation of the views of Judge Story by the Su-
preme Court.
On the suggestion of Mr. P. Hamilton, the ob-
jections taken by Mr. Alexander Hamilton, Jr., at
the commencement of the case to the form and
structure of the indictment, which it has been pro-
posed to argue during the term, and which if sus-
tained by the Court, would render an examination
of the subject by the Supreme Court unnecessary.
The Jury were discharged from further considera-
tion of the case, without giving any verdict, and
the accused was remanded.

in all respects the same-the same course is to be

INDIANs.-On Saturday evening last, as Mr.
Isler, living about four miles from town, was out
driving for deer, with some of his neighbors, the
dogs suddenly took off in a new direction, appa-
rently eager in pursuit of some other game from
that which they had just been running. Mr. Isler
was attracted to follow his dogs from their extra-
ordinary movements and will conduct, and after
proceeding a short distance, discovered what he
supposed to be a runaway negro, standing behind
a- small tree, and asked him what he was doing
there. As soon as he spoke, however, he discover-
ed that it was an Indian, who raised his rifle to
shoot Isler-and did fire, his ball grazing the breast
of Isler. At this moment a white man, in company,
fired upon the Indian, and wounded him. Mr. Isler
also shot him, and the Indian was killed on the snot.

His scalp was taken off and brought to town. Eleven
Indians were seen to cross the St. Augustine road,
on Sunday. In 30 minutes from the time the news
above related reached town, the minute men were
in pursuit, and tracked the foe for several miles,
but lost their winding way in the hammock. On
this occasion, the Indians have evinced great bold-
ness, having approached nearer to the city than
ever before. Every man should be on the alert
and be prepared to defend himself.
By the brig Francis Jane, Captain Thompson, at
this port yesterday from Rio de Janeiro, we have
received a file of the Buenos Ayres British Pack-
et," to the 21st September.
Nothing definite had as yet transpired in ref-
erence to the hostile movements against Montevideo
or those in the Province of Entre Rios. The Pack-
et of the 21st has the following paragraph on the
subject :-
The present posture of affairs in this country is
one of intense interest, and we may look every day
for intelligence of importance, either as regards the
operations of the Argentine army in the Oriental
territory or the incursion of Don Juan Lavalle and
his adherents into the Province of Entre Rios. In the
mean time the most perfect tranquility reigns in
this Capital and all the districts of the Province,
and indeed there is no exception to the general un-
disturbed state of the whole republic but the incur-
sion alluded to. Our Montevidean neighbors are in
a far less enviable situation ; that town being now
as it were in a state of siege, a great proportion of
the foreign population, such as Spaniards, Basques,
&c., have been obliged to take up arms, but the
British Consul General has given notice to his
countrymen that he will resist any attempt forcibly
to enrol them under the banner of any of the con-
flicting parties, as will be seen in another part of

There were no merchant vessels in the port of
Buenos Ayres. The French vessels of war lying off
the harbor were two brigs of 18 and 20 guns. The
blockade seems to be maintained by the French
with great rigor.-[Balt. Amer. I

have heard them, agree in saying, that never bol
beautiful and powerful voices have yet been heard
on this side of the Atlantic. They intend to give
only a few more of their musical entertainments,
previous to their departure or New Orleans. t

ELEGANT PIANOs.-We would advise those of
our musical friends in want of a good Piano, to.
ook at the advertisement of Atwill. We seldom
have seen at one place so large a number of Pianos
at one time as he now has for his customers to se-
lect from. His prices are very low.

FIRE.-On Saturday night, between 9 and 10
o'clock, a dense smoke was seen issuing from the
first story of the four story brick building, No. 70
Beaver street. On forcing the doors the fire burst
out, which, before it was arrested, the contents of
the building were entirely destroyed, and the build-
ing much damaged.
The building was owned by Mr. Robert Smith,
and occupied on the first floor by Mr. Robert Tay-
lor as a fancy dry goods store, and in the upper
part by Mr. Isaac Moses, Jr., dealer in India goods.
We understand that Messrs. Moses and Taylor
were insured.-[Jour. of Com.]
CORONER'S INQUESTs.-On Saturday, at the
City Hospital, on the body of John Colvin, a sea-
man, who died of a complication of diseases. Al-
so, at the corner of Forsyth and Rivington streets,
on the body of Johan Gotleeintz, a German, who
died suddenly from some cause unknown. Also, at
479 Cherry street, on the body of Catherine Nu-
gent, a native of Ireland, whose habits were ex-
tremely intemperate, and was so badly burned by
her clothes catching fire, a few day's back, that it
caused her death on Saturday.
HARLEM RAILROAD.-We learn that some part
of the' embankment, at or near the tunnel, gave
way Saturday, and blocked up the road with the
ruins. No person was injured.
CONNECTICUT RIVER.-The Charter Oak came
down this morning. There is a good deal of ice in
the river.
FIRE AT EAGLE HARBOR.-The almost new and
valuable flouring mill of Gen. E. S. Beach, of this
city, situated near the Erie Canal at Eagle Harbor,
in Orleans county, was entirely destroyed by fire on
Saturday last, about 2 o'clock P. M.
The mill cost the builders about 20,000. There
were about 6000 bushels of shorts, middlings, bran
and screenings, destroyed, worth $800, and 12 or
1400 bushels of wheat. The latter belonged to
Col. James Mather, of Gaines, and had been left
for flouring. All the flour, as well as the books
and papers, was saved. No insurance.-[Roches-
ter Democrat.]
FLOUR.-At Zanesville, Ohio, says the Republi-
can of Saturday last, one thousand barrels of Flour
were offered at $2,75 per bbl. and no purchaser
locomotive came up from New Haven to the town
line, in West Hartford, yesterday. We are also
informed that the' road will probably be completed
up to the city line, to-morrow afternoon. The re-
maining section, to the depot, foot of Mulberry
street, will be completed, it is hoped, by the 7th
of December.-[Hartford Courier, Nov. 29.]
The Portland (Maine) Courier mentions that a
fire occurred at Mrlltown, Me., on Friday, which
consumed two saw mills, a lath machine, and a
quantity of lumber. Estimated loss, about $2,500
-no insurance.
PoRK.-Sales of pork have been made at Rip-
ley, Ohio, at $3,50 per 100 lbs. Many of the far-
mers in the vicinity of Ripley design packing on
their own account.
THE NAVIGATION.--The river navigation con-
tinues without interruption, and with little ice. The
mild weather of the last twenty-four hours is a fa-
vorable indication, and we are not without hopes of
an open navigation until after the organization of
Congre ss.
The canal navigation may be regarded as closed
for the season. We are assured, however, that'
the number of boats, and the amount of flour said
t3 have been caught along the line of the canal,
has been much exaggerated; that west of Utica
there are few boats ; and that at Utica, and between
that place and this the number is less than. it.--
[Albany Argus, Nov. 30.]
MAIL ROBBER CoNvICTBD.-At the late term. rif
the United States District Court, held at Richmond,
Va. William W. Turner was convicted of robbing
the steamboat mail between Norfolk and Richmond.
Va. last fall, and sentenced to two. years imprison-
ment in the penitentiary.
FIRE.-A fire occurred in this village yesterday
morning, which destroyed the following buildings,
situate on Main, below Bristol street, viz :
The gunsmith shop of Mr. Robert Antis, with all
his tools, several guns, stock. &c : nothing saved.
Loss about $800; insured for $400. The fire ori-
ginated in this building.
One small dwelling on the south, adjoining the
shop owned by Wm. Antis, Jr., occupied by a poor
family. Insured for 9$400.

Another small dwelling adjoining the above,
owned by S. Lyon; no insurance.
A two story building between the shop and Wm.
Antis, Jr.'s store, lower part occupied by mechan-
ics, and uppper part as dwellings, by three fami-
lies. Loss $1000; no insurancee ; the policy hav-
ing expired.-[Canandaigua Repository.]
FIRE.-About 4 o'clock yesterday morning, a
fire broke out in the St. John street bakery, be-
tween Perdidoand Poydras streets, owned by Mr.
Rodriguez & Co. It originated in some boards
placed over the kiln, which becoming heated from
the oven, took fire and communicated to the rest
of the building. The bakery was entirely destroy-
ed, together with a number of barrels of flour, im-
plements for baking, &c. The bakery was insured
at about half its value.-[N. 0. Bee, 20th ult.]
A shocking outrage occurred in Davidson coun-
ty, N. C. on the 16th. Nathan Lambeth was taken
out of his own bed, at a late hour of the night, by a
parcel of men, and whipped and beaten with hick-
ories and clubs until he was nearly lifeless. They
left him lying in the woods. He came to, and was
able to get back to his house, and lived until the
next night, and then died; and he, on his diving de-
claration, said that John Goss and Lee Wharton,
of the State of Missouri, were of the company.
Mr. Goss emigrated from Davidson county a year
or two ago,and is of a respectable family. He came
back recently on business to North Carolina, and
had collected $800 in gold and silver, partly for
himself and partly for others, and had made a de-
posit of the specie with John Lee, of Davidson
county, for safe deeping, on which robbery had
been committed and the money stolen. A negro of
Lee's was suspected, taken up and whipped;
whereupon he confessed the robbery, but said that
Lambeth (the deceased) hired him to do it.
Shortly thereafter, the assault was made upon
Laminbeth. The,.deceased persisted in declaring
his innocence to the last.-[Alex. Gazette.]

pT Hf r li 4*clS~fi OF T'HE SOCIETY FOUt
SMALL CHILDREN.--n the year 1797, Mrs.
Graham, a heavenly minded follower of the Saviour.
presented the claims of the widow and the fatherless
to a small number of her female friends, and urged them,
in dependence upon Gon, to aid her in laying the foun-
dation of the Society, whose 42d Report is now pre-
sented to you, and which was the first charitable in-
corporated institution in the United States, conducted
by ladies. Its founder and most of her associates
have long since finished their career, but the sapling
which they planted in faith, believing, still lives as a
memento oftheirpiety and love. The dews of heaven
have ever descended upon it; it has been watered by the
tears, and strengthened by the prayer of the widow and
the orphan, until its firmly fixed roots give promise of
stability, and its wide-spreading branches offer shelter
to thousands from the wind and the storm, and protec-
tion from the heartlessness of the world.
As managers of this Society we now come before
you, to express our gratitude for the many instances in
which our anxieties have been removed, and our hearts
brightened, by the readiness with which you have ans-
wered ourcalls, and granted our petitions. And here
we would particularly mention the small number
among our patrons, who, on each succeeding season,
enrich our treasury by the munificent donation of $100
or $50. May no chankeof fortune deprive them of the
elevating pleasure derived from relieving the wants of
To our mercantile friends, who, when donations and
subscriptions were exhausted, have so often united,
with one heart and mind, to aid us in our extremity,
we cannot express our gratitude; but we will raise the
fervent supplication, that their offerings may be made
through faith in Jesus, and come up as an acceptable
sacrifice before the Lord, to remove the dark cloud
which now obscures their future prospects. ,
While we tender our thanks to the Corporation for
favors hitherto conferred, we must express our disap-
pointment for the discontinuance of these favors. We
had hoped that by supplying the urgent wants of 400
widows and 1010 children, we had in some degree light-
ened their labors, and trusted that by a repetition of
their kindness, they would still acknowledge us as
co-workers with them in ministering to the necessities
of the poor.
The account rendered by your managers of their
beneficiaries is generally encouraging; they are occa-
sionally deceived by unworthy objects; but deception
cannot be carried to any extent when every member of
the Board is required to obtain all possible information
of each applicant, before she is taken on the books,
after which she is to be visited at least once a month.
One of your managers in her report says: In the
early part of last winter I received a note from a
friend of the Society, requesting me to call upon Mrs.
C- who had lately become a widow. I hastened
to comply with the request, and found the object of my
search in a small but neat apartment, surrounded by
three little children, the two youngest under two years
of age. After a few questions, she gave me the follow-
ing account of her situation: 'During my married
life, I never knew what it was to want. My husband
was kind, and made us all comfortable. I tied to keep
my children and my rooms clean, and to be ready for
him when he returned from his work. But when he
was taken sick, I soon spent all he had earned, and
was obliged to bind shoes whenever I could find time,
to buy him medicine and food. He died, and I was
left alone with my little babies. The shoemaker
brought my work but I sat with my arms folded, and
wondered why it was lying there, and when he came
to take it, he found I had done nothing but he was
sorry for me, for he knew I had no friends, and my
mind was gene. I am better now, and do all I can, but-
it will not find bread for my children.' I gave her an
order for some groceries, and promised to remain with
her little ones while she went to procure them. She
too& a nice cloak from a nail on the wall, and before
putting it en said, with a tear in her eye, he was so
proud when lie was able to give me this, and liked so
to see me wear it-but it must ba sold now.' I have
often visited Mrs. C--: a stove, with every neces-
sary appendage makes her room quite comfortable;
her children are clothed-and, with a grateful heart
she acknowledges that shoe binding finds bread
enough now, wince the Widow's Society furnishes all
the rest."
The successwhich has attended their labors, and the
interest excited in their behalf have induced your ma-
nagers (as mentioned in their last report) to enlarge
their boundaries, but when they look at the great num-
ber still excluded from their bounty,they naturally ask,
Are not these also worthy ? Why must they be sent
away ? In accordance with this view, a resolution
was passed at the last meeting of the Board (which
took place in April) that an effort should be made again
to extend their borders or form an auxiliary beyond
their limits. The present state of the commercial
world, together with the decision of the Common Coun-
cil, has of course destroyed all hope on this subject.
But your managers desire to lay this resolution
before the public, that it may be clearly understood
by those whose pensioners are beyond our reach,
and who have sometimes censured us for not ex-
tending our charities-that we are ready to go forth
in the strength of our God, into every part of the
city, to watch over the barrel of meal that it waste
not, and the crmse of oil, lest it fail; but to THEM is
committed qportionofthat with which were toperform
our task, and we earnestly entreat them, while sur-
rounded by the luxuries of li fe, to examine our claims,
and their responsibilities,and come and help u ere the
widow and her child die.

INSURANCE.-The Mutual Safety Insurance Com-
pany. chartered by the Legislature of this State, sub-
mit the following statement in relation to the Institu
tion and its advantages.
The premiums charged, terms of credit, conditions
of insurance and general mode of transacting business,
are precisely similar to those of the most approved of-
fices m this city.
The net profits of .the company, (consisting of the
premiums on all the risks terminated during the previ-
ous twelve months, less the losses and expenses of the
same period,) will be divided annually among those
who have paid said premiums, and in proportion to the
several amounts paid by each. The dividends will be
made in scnp certificates, bearing such interest as
shall anse from the investment of the net profits in
bonds and mortgages, and public stocks.
The premiums accruing upon risks taken since the
issue of the first policy on the 18th of December, 1838,
amount, at the present time, to more than FOUR HUN
from which, it is to be presumed, that the premiums of
each year will not only pay all the losses and expenses
of that year, but will enable the company to divide a
surplus among the insured.
The quarter expressly provides that the insured
cannot in any case incur a loss beyond the amount of
his premiums.

between Greenwich street and Brawiy, con
tinues to be ccnsulted as usual.
Strangers aie respectfully apprizedthat Dr. HORNE
was bred to the Medical Profession in the city of Lon-
don, and has been a practical member of,said Faculty
of Physic 42 years; for the last 32 in the city of New
York. His practice from being formerly general, he
has long confined to a particular branch of Medicine,
which engages his profound attention, viz:-Lues Ve-
neria Scorbutus, Scrofula, Elephantiasis, and, in
short, all diseases arising from a vitiated state of the
blood. His experience is very great. His sucoes as-
tonishing. In many thousands of Case committed to
his care, of all grades and every degree of malignancy,
he has speedily restored his patients to health and a
sound constitution.
He cautions the unfortunate against the abuse o
mercury. Thousands are annually mercurialized out
of life. See that your case is eradicated, notpatched
up. The learned Dr. Buchan emphatically observes--
"Married persons, and persons about to hbe married,
should be particularly cautious of those &4lctions.
What a dreadful inheritance 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, extinguished in a few days. What
grieves the Dr. is, that many afflicted, instead of taking
his salutary advice, have recourse to advised nostrums,
where there is no responsibility, and the compounders
unknown ; by such means, throwing away their roney,
(where they vainly hope to save) and ruin for ever
heir constitution.
Persons who may have contracted disease, or sus
pect latent poison, are invited to make application to.
Dr. HORNE, at his Establishment, No, 204 Fulton
street, between Greenwich street and Broadway. A
residence of thirty-two years in New-York city, has
radically established Dr. Home's character for sterling
honor; and based on real respectability and skill. Dr
Home offers to his patrons a sure guarantee
Offices for separate consultations. Patients can
never come in contact.
Attendance until half past 9 in the evening.
No Letters taken in unless post paid. All city let
ters must be handed in.

P. S.-As long as Dr. Home desires to benefit the
public, it is proper he should continue his advertise
ment for the good of strangers, as it is well known'people
are extremely shy in speaking of eases of a delicate
nature, even where a physician is pre-eminently sue
eessful. j14

J CONCENTRATED.-For purifying the blood,
removing eruptions, &c., from the skin, and all imj
purities from the system, this pleasant and healthy
Syrup has no equal. Perhaps there is no more certain
way of promoting general health during the Summer
than by using this Syrup in the Spring. The medical
profession give it a decided preference over all the
most celebrated Panaceas, Syrups, &c., and nursing
mothers, whose infants are afflicted with Scald Head;
Sore Ears, or Weak Eyes, are particularly recom.
mended to use it. It is perfectly harmless, nd when
combined with Seidlitz or Soda Water, frmns a cool
ing and agreeable beverage. Used with oild water
it makes a very pleasant Summer drink, and may be
used with advantage by most persons at any time. It
is prepared from the best Honduras Sarsapa*ilta, aol
cording to the most approved formulas, raafi, ca'

V' --Although Dr. Taylor's Balsam of Liverwort
has found hundreds of advocates, and has produced so
large a number of testimonials in its favor, 1 cannot
withhold my small meedof praise. Beingpredisposed
to consumption, both from peculiar formation and he-
reditary transmission, I tried every means to check
this disease and strengthen a naturally weak eonstitu-
tion. I spent two years at Pisa, one in Rome, two im
Florence, and another in the South of France, seeking,
meantime, the advice of the best physicians. Two
years since I returned to this country, in abut the
same situation as when I reft. I had seen in the read-
ing rooms in Europe much said in favor of Dr. Tav-

lor's Balsam of Liverwort, and is soon as I arrived in
this city I used it, and in three months I was so well I
concluded I could pass the winter here safely, and did
so. I have used an occasional bottle now and then du-
ring the time, but am now in as good health as is pos.
sible. My cough has wholly ceased, and my' lungs
have every feeling of health. Dr. G. Smith, and Dr.
Post of this city were my physicians, and now uy
they did believe me incurable.

quires that they stand or sit much, or those of sedent-
ary habits general y, who may be troubled with pains
in the breast or side, are advised to try one of these
beautiful plasters,as they are essentially different from
all others, and are free from those objections which are
so reasonably made against plasteps generally. The
proprietor has had the pleasure of selling them daily
for a number of years in this city. and of the many
thousands who have used them, he has not heard of a
solitary complaint. They are patronized extensively
by the medical profession; and there is riot probably
an intelligent physician in the United States or
Europe, that would hesitate to station them with his
name or influence, when made acquainted with their
