THE HOBOKEN LAND AND IMPROVE-
MENT COMPANY, organized under an act of the
Legislature of the State, of New-Jersey, having pur-.
chased the whole of the Hoboken estate belonging to
the heirs of the late Col. John Stevens, together with
the Stfeam Ferry-boats, right of Ferriage, &c. with
the city of New'York, will soon dispose of lots at
private sale, and invite the attention of those desirous
of obtaining eligible sites for building, to an examina-
tion of these grounds.
The village of Hoboken, as a convenient, pleasant
and healthy place of residence, presents advantages,
it is believed, unrivalled by any other place in the vi-
cinity of New York. Through the medium of the seve-
ral lines of Ferry-boats belonging to the Company, a
communication is afforded with the city at three dif-
ferent points, viz: Barclay street, Canal street, and
As an inducement to those desirous, of availing
themselves of the advantages of a residence in Hobo-
ken, the most.liberal terms will be made, both in the
sale of lots and in the use of the ferries.
Aside from its value as a place of residence from
its nearness to the city, it must be obvious that the
position of Hoboken is such, from the extent of coun-
try lying to the west and north of it, and the improve-
ments which are in operation, or contemplated, having
a tendency to direct business to it, that investments
within its limits cannot be otherwise than safe and pro-
Further particulars in relation to the conditions and
terms of sale will be given in a future notice.

r HE REV. H. H. MILMAN'S EDITION OF
.L GIBBON'S ROMAN EMPIRE, illustrated with
Historical Maps. In 12 beautifully printed octavo vols,
This edition contains the unmutilated Text of Gib.
boa carefully revised, particularly in the Quotations,
It is illustrated with Notes to correct the errors of
Gibbon, and especially to put the unwary reader on
his guard against his misstatements regarding Chris-
tianity, the only blemish in a work for which the Li-
terature of Europe affords no substitute. Mr. Mil-
man has also collected all the information that has
been brought to light in recent times by M. Guizot
and other French and German Historians, and by
Documents not accessible to Gibbon: thus rendering
this the only perfect edition at the present time.

Principal, the Rev. W. F. WALKER, will give to the
School his constant superintendence.

stitution to its present State, and secure the facilities
it now offers for imparting a thorough and Christian

appreciate as to extend a continuance and increase of

oughly warming the rooms, both public and private, so
as to render them perfectly comfortable in the coldest
weather. Those interested are invited to call and

next week, previous to the opening.
The next, or Fall Term, will commence on Friday,

Applications for the admission of pupils may be made
to the Principal, the Rev. W. F. WALKER, person-
ally or through the post office, or to JOHN W. MITCH-

This Institution is excluvely 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 niorals of'the

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 perfectly healthy, and
combines every advantage requisite for such an estab-

Upon this solemn occasion it may not be unat-
tended with good, to advert to the cause which has
reduced you to this deplorable condition. This,
by your own confession, was rum. Within the
last nine years I have had eleven men arraigned
before me on indictments for murdering their
wives; ten of whom were drunkards. What
stronger proof could be afforded of the deplorable
consequences of intemperance 1
These victims were urged on by it from one de-
gree of depravity to another, till they were not
only induced to imbrue their hands in the blood of
their fellow-beings, but to sacrifice the partners of
their bosoms-those whom they rested under the
strongest obligations to love, cherish and protect.
Instead of encircling them in their warmest af-
fections, they deprived them of life, and they now
lie mouldering in their graves.
From my own experience, and the best informa-
tion I have "'obtained I am satisfied that three fourths
of the crimes committed are consequent upon intem-
perance. Drunkards crowd our penitentiaries, and
our alms houses are filled with them, or with those
who are brought* to want by the intemperance of
their natural protectors. In spite of the admolfi-
tions of wise and good men, victims of intempe-
rance daily swell the throng, and the tide of misery
consequent upon it move on, and will continue to

FRIDAY EVENING, DECEMBER 6, 1839.
Office, No. 114 Wall street, corner of Broad street.
FROM HARRISBURG, nothing at all definitive Ls to
the orgarization or proceedings of the Convention
is yet known. A very large number of persons,
delegates, and others had arrived there-and it is
believed all the seats but four, South Carolina,
Georgia, Tennessee and Arkansas, would be repre-
seLnted by delegates.
To-morrow we may have something more defini-
tive, and meanwhile abstain from speculation.
Since the above, we have the following letter
"We have organized, and learned something
of the aspect of things.
The second choice of Kentucky and Virginia is
Scott. But Harrison is very strong. Mr. Clay
is now, I think, out of the question. The pros-
pects look nearly as bright as the day-but do
not hope too much."
[Correspondence of the New York American.]
WASHINGTON, Dec. 4.
The discussion is still going on, as to the recep-
tion of the New Jersey members, without any ac-
tual approximation to results. But the appear-
ance to-day is decidedly favorable. Mr. Wise
withdrew his resolution at the request of Mr.
Stanley, of North Carolina. This, I think, was
greatly owing to the quick perception of Mr. Hoff-
man, who instantly arose, and opposed the reso-
lution with much force. In fact, he showed the
tact which he so eminently possesses; for, in my
opinion, Mr. Wise's resolution yielded the prin-
Mr. Barnard, of Albany, made a capital effort
to-day. It was calm, dignified, persuasive, and
parliamentary, and had, I thought, a very good
Mr. Cooper, of Georgia, (an Administration
member,) argued the question powerfully and
closely, and contended, that the certificate was
the only evidence of the rights or inchoate mem-
I cannot go into all these arguments-my letter
is only to tell you of the state of things.
By the way, I heard Mr. Pickens, of South Ca-
rolina, to-day, for the first time. I had imbibed
a favorable impression of him, but I was sadly
disappointed. He was violent, and said he was
"born insensible to fear." I wished he had been
ao clear of the party trammels as not to contend
that the State sovereignty was not in a Govern-
or .,nd Privy Council! Miserable and wretched
issue as if the State had not determined and in-
dicated by the statute, the means by which its
high and sovereign pleasure was to be manifested.
I was infinitely dissatisfied with Mr. Pickens' view
of constitutional and parliamentary law.
Mr. Graves made a most impassioned argument,
for it was an argument, though he was highly ex-
cited. He launched his thunders into a Mr. Wel-
ler, of Ohioi who had declared Gov. Pennington to
have made a false return; and that he was for the
people, and would sit with no member not endorsed
by the people. He spoke of the declaration with
a proud scorn and indignation, and characterized
it as base party slang, and a vile slander.
Altogether, the cause of constitutional law
stands better to-day; and, if our Whig friends
present ,a aridivpided front, the day may yet be
ours. I -t us that the true Whigs may stand yet
by the ark of the Constitution and the Laws.
HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES.
The close of the third day found the House no
further advanced in tie work of organization than
the first, except that a calmer feeling seemed to
pervade both parties, the first excitement of dis-
cussion being somewhat mollified. On Wednes-
day the House was called to order by the Clerk
at noon, and the floor given to Mr. Duncan, of
Ohio. He gave way, however, to Mr. Wise, who
rose to propose the following resolution :
Resolved, That the Representatives of the Con-
ress of the United States now assembled, to re-
lieve themselves from the embarrassment and diffi-
culties which at present obstruct the organization
of the House, will proceed, by the acting Clerk,
to call the names of gentlemen whose rights to
seats are not disputed or contested ; and after the
names of such members are all called, and be-
fore they proceed to elect a Speaker, or other offi-
cer, or to organize in any manner, they shall, pro-
vided there be a quorum of such present, hear and
decide upon all credentials, certificates, or com-
missions of persons claiming seats in the House of
Representatives, under the Constitution of the
United States and the laws of the respective
After some discussion, Mr. Hunt, of New York,
presented another resolution, as a substitute for
that of Mr. Wise, in these words :
Resolved, That this House will now proceed to
elect a temporary Speaker, allowing the member
from New Jersey (producing the evidence given ac-
cording to the law of that State) to vote on the
question. That the Speaker thus chosen shall ap-
point none of the Committees of the House. That
the Committee of Elections shall be chosen by bal-
Int And that. after the question on the disputed
existed, and called upon the Clerk to accept the'
only legal commissions from New Jersey any one
pretended to know any thing about. After further
debate, Mr. Wise withdrew his resolution, when
Mr. Hunt pressed his substitute, upon which no
action was had before the House adjourned.
PROVIDENCE BANKS.-Out of the twenty-one
Banks in Providence, (says the Commercial,) the
following seven redeem their notes in specie :-
Arcade, Blackstone Canal, Merchants', Mechan-
ics' and Manufacturers', Providence, Roger Wil-
liams, and Traders'. The currency of the place,
however, continues in the notes of non-specie pay-
ing Banks. It is still quite doubtful when a total
resumption will take place. A meeting of dele-
gates from the several Banks convened on Monday
for the purpose of considering the subject, and only
eight Banks were favorable to an early resump-
tion. The law passed at the late session of the
Legislature sanctions the suspension until the 1st
of February ; meanwhile the Legislature meet
again, and possibly their sanction may be farther
extended, as it is understood to be the opinion of
many that the Banks of Rhode Island should not
resume before those of Pennsylvania.
THE BANK OF CHARLESTON S. C., this morning
put Exchange on New York down to 1 per cent.

INDIAN MURDERS.-A slip from the Charleston
Courier office gives the particulars of sundry at-
tacks and murders by the Indians, within a few
miles of St. Augustine.
On 25th ult. Capt. Searle, Assistant Quarter
Master, was shot while in the mail wagon running
to Pocalata. His wound is dangerous. A young
Pole in company, named Posenantzky, was killed.
A Mr. Philo Weadmaa, with his son of 14 years of

THu DAGUERROTyPB.-We availed ourselves
of the politeness of Mr. Gouraud, to examine
some most beautiful specimens of this astonish-
ing invention ofM. Daguerre, which Mr. G. brought
out with him in the British Queen. It is impossi-
ble to describe intelligibly the effect produced by
this art. Human vision, unaided, can grasp but a
small portion of the objects around us ; and those
are obscured as the distance increases. They ex-
ist, but we do not see them. Even the minutest
touch of the burin fails to convey all the details
of Nature, But in this art, whose productions we
would notice, every object which can be reached
by a single ray of light, is faithfully delineated by
that pervading and subtle agent. Our readers are
familiar with the general effects produced by the
discovery of M. Daguerre, as well as with the his-
tory of the invention, brought by him to its pre-
sent state of perfection by a course of twelve
thousand experiments, the whole series of which
was destroyed by the accidental burning of his
house not many months ago. The effect is pro-
duced by an instrument resembling the camera ob-
scura, the objects being reflected by a proper lens,
upon a metallic plate, chemically prepared to re-
ceive the action of the light, which corrodes its
surface more or less, according to the intensity of
the rays of light.
Mr. Gouraud has brought out a number of
plates representing views in Paris, and several in-
teriors, with statues, pictures, and other objects of
art, grouped with much taste. Some of these were
prepared by Daguerre himself. The most aston-
ishing part of the invention is the inconceivable
fidelity with which the most minute details of these
objects are given. The largest engravings are re-
flected in less than a square inch, with every line
and shade faithfully rendered. The distances in
the architectural views are also marvellous. But
every one will see for himself, and all will be as
tonished, after never-so-labored an attempt to con-
vey a notion of the results.
[From the National Gazette.]
We find the following paragraph in yesterday's
evening edition of the New York Express :
Professor Espy said in our office half an hour
ago, 'a storm has been raging at the South West
for the last thirty-six hours, and is still raging.'
Yesterday it was clear here nearly the whole day-
today there is a Northeast storm of wind."
The Norfolk Herald of Monday says, "The
weather was very boisterous and wet during the
last three days. Yesterday the wind blew quite a
gale from N.N.E., arnd the weather was so very
thick that the steamboat Jewess did not venture
out this morning on her regular trip to Balti-
The Savannah Reporter states, as a confirmation
of another of Mr. Espy's meteorological theories,
that the fires raging in the fields near Savannah
were immediately followed by copious showers of

The London Times treats the whole matter as
an act of positive bankruptcy on the part of the
Bank of the United States, in which it had involved
other banks dependent on it, and at the same time
denounces all American securities. It also assert-
ed that Mr. Jaudon had been obliged to renew, at
most exorbitant interest, some of the Bills of Ex-
change on him, which had matured. This, how-
ever, is thus contradicted by that gentleman:
To the Editor of the Times.
Sir,-Under the head of Money-market and
City Intelligence' in your paper of this morning, it
is stated that bills of exchange to a large amount
have been presented, it is said, to the London agent
(of the Bank of the United States,) who declined
payment, but has been able to make an arrange-
ment with the holders under which the bills are re-
newed, and the loss prevented which would have
ensued, had they been returned under protest to
To this assertion it is necessary that I should
give the most unqualified contradiction. I never
have declined payment of any bills of exchange
drawn upon me by the Bank of the United States,
nor have I made or attempted to make any arrange-
ment for the renewal of such bills. On the con-
trary, every bill of exchange bearing my signature
has been regularly and promptly paid at Messrs.
Denison and Co.'s banking-house, where all my ac-
ceptances are made payable.
As the paragraph above quoted is calculated to
do very great injury to the shareholders in the Bank
of the United States, as well as to all holders of its
obligations, I have to request that, as the slightest
possible reparation that can be made, you will insert
this letter in your paper of to-morrow, under the
same head of' Money Market and City Intelligence.'
Your obedient humble servant,
Agent of the Bank of the United States.

It seemed to be the general belief that none of
these bills would come back, notwithstanding the
failure, as matter of course after the news by the
Liverpool, of the negotiation with Hope & Co.
There were so many parties interested in pre-
venting these bills from returning, that a new loan
to the amount of 280,000 sterling was forthcom-
ing to honor them all. The annexed statement of
the affairs of the Bank had been circulated in Lon-
don from the Agency.

The London Money Market was upon the whole
easier, and as a consequence, the speculative de-
mand, as well as trade, for Cotton was better.-
American Cotton had advanced about 1-4 per lb.,
with an active demand.
In bread stuffs there had teen some fall ; Ameri-
can Flour had declined 2 a 3 shillings stg. per brl.,
and wheat about 3d per bushel of 70 lbs.
The facts thnt no bills would return, and that
cotton had advanced, must be considered as favor-
able news here.

From America the intelligence is even more un.
favorable than it was expected to be. The United
States Bank struggled against the difficulties thick-
ening around it, till the 9th of last month-the day
before the Liverpool arrived with the accounts of
the dishonor of the Bank's drafts in Paris-and
then suspended payment. The other Philadelphia
banks took the same course. Their example was
followed in Baltimore, Richmond, Charleston, and,
with unimportant exceptions, in every town south
of Philadelphia, to New Orleans, where it was
supposed specie payments would be continued.

Of political news, the matter of most immediate
interest was a serious Chartist revolt in South
Wales. The London Spectator thus condenses
the whole story :
In South Wales, disturbances, to which the term
insurrection may, without exaggeration, be applied,
have broken out. Many thousands of the working
class were collected, and marched at the command
of a chosen leader, to seize, if not to sack, a con-
siderable town in Monmouthshire ; whence, as
from head-quarters, they hoped to extend their au-
thority, and produce a general rebellion. It is al-
most incredible that such a mad design should
have been entertained in any part of England.
Within a few years there have been riotous assem-
blages in various places-Bristol, Nottingham, in
the neighborhood of Canterbury, Sheffield, Roch-
dale, and Birmingham; but all with a local or
limited object. There is reason to believe that
larger views were entertained by the Welsh insur-
gents. Their leader was the noted John Frost,
who exhibited considerable cleverness in his cor-
respondence with Lord John Russell, and who
seems to have impressed multitudes with the be-
lief that he and they together could overturn the
Government and establish the Charter." There
must have been a strong predisposition among the
Welshmen to a similar opinion-a vehement de-
sire for the possession of political privileges, com-
bined with some of the qualities essential to realize
their projects. For it is remarkable, that although
many thousands were enrolled and ready to take
the field against the constituted authorities, with
such secrecy had their proceedings been managed,
that it was only on Sunday last the Magistrates of
Newport became aware that, on the following day,
the entire district would be in a state of open in-
surrection, and the defence of their lives and pro-
perty committed to the small garrison, fortunately
at hand in Newport for their protection. The in-
surgents, with thewes and sinews such as miners
and workmen in iron-furnaces possess, could plot
in secret, and lull the local Magistracy into a false
security. But the events of Monday exhibited
these hardy inhabitants of mines and mountains
powerless against disciplined soldiers. Headed by
Frost and his son. a mere boy, they entered New-
port about ten o'clock in the forenson, and replied
to the Mayor's orders to disperse, with bullets and
sabre-cuts. They fired into the windows of an inn
where the Magistrates ,had stationed themselves,
guarded by thirty foot soldiers. This handful of
troops, favorably placed under cover, fired deliber-
ately on the assailants, killed and wounded them
by scores, and speedily put to flight a body of eight
or ten thousand; who have not again ventured to
renew the attack, although it does not appear that
the Newport garrison, with reinforcements- since
sent, exceeds three hundred. Only two of the
military were wounded; and though the Mayor
and a few other citizens were severely hurt, none
were killed. These are the leading facts of the
Welsh insurrection, as hitherto reported.
This was.nrot a "rebellion of the belly." The
wag's paid in the iron-works of South Wales are
liberal-an able-bodied workman earning 22s. a
week; and it is stated that the prisoners taken
were well clothed and of decent appearance. One
of them was a master gardener, who paid wages to
others. Their views were political : discontent
with the civil position assigned to them in the Eng-
lish community made them what is called Chartists,
and ready disciples of the wild man Frost. That
their notions were vague in the extreme, is most
likely: they had probably heard how the workmen
of Paris had effected a revolution and routed regu-
lar troops : why should not they follow the glorious
example with equal success? But there was no
parallel either in the occasions or the agencies.
Monmouthshire miners are not Parisian artisans and
students; and John Frost and his confederates
were far inferior spirits to those who erected bar-
ricades in the streets of the Bourbon capital and
took the H6tel de Ville by a coup de main. They
exposed themselves to sure slaughter, and fled be-
fore half a company of "regulars," ensconced be-
hind walls and firing from windows. Many old
soldiers were in the ranks at Paris during the Three
Days of July ; whereas, with the exception of one
deserter, it would seem that the Monmouthshire
men had never learned to handle weapons of war,
and were utterly ignorant of military discipline.
Whatever the immediate motive of action, it is
certain that political discontent was at the bottom
of the outbreak. Equally true is it that the law,
so recently enforced, had not terrified but exaspe-
rated the Welsh Chartists. They vowed revenge
for Vincent, together with the liberation of that
popular victim. The Attorney-General lately
boasted to his constituents at Edinburgh, that
Chartism had vanished-that the law had put it
down without spilling one drop of blood. This
was spoken in forgetfulness of the fact that at Bir-
mingham and elsewhere, bayonets had performed
what the law was unequal to ; and the events at
Monmouth show that if Chartism is to be extermi-
nated, fines and imprisonments will not effect its
suppression. Neither, it may safely be predicted,
will the slaughter in Monmouthshire, or the sacrifi-
ces on the scaffold which may be at hand, quell the
insurrectionary spirit. Good may have been ac-
complished by demonstrating to the working men
the folly of attempting a revolution by arms and
violence; but the tragedy will embitter, rather
than allay, what we lately designated the worst
feature of Chartism"-a deplorable dislike and
jealousy of the middle classes, not common, we
hope, to the whole mass of English workmen, but
certainly not limited to the miners in Wales.

B ADEAU'S CELEBRATED S'TREN THEN
ING PLA STER, prepared for pain orweakness
in the breast, side, back or limbs ; also for gout, rheu-
matism, liver complaint, and dyspepsia; for coughs,
colds, asthmas, difficulty of breathing, oppression of
the stomach, &c., they will give iinmedihte and sooth-
ing relief; and for pleasantness, safety, ease, and cer-
tainty, are decidedly superior to most of other reme
dies. Such persons whose business or avocation re!
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 plasters 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 not probably
an intelligent physician in the United States or
Europe, that would hesitate to sartction them with his
name or influence, when made acquainted with their
Printed directions accompany each Plaster, signed
by me, in my own hand writing, to counterfeit which
will be punished as forgery. Persons about having
them will remember to ask for Badeau's Strengthening
Plaster, and see that they get the direction thus signed.
They are put up in boxes with attractive show bills-
will keep without injury in any climate-and will be
forwarded to any part of the United States or British
Provinces, as per order, and a liberal discount made to
those who buy to sell'again; In conclusion, I have only
to add, that instances are 'so numerous in which the
most salutary effects have been produced by using
them, that they are recommended with the most entire
confidence to all who are thus afflicted.
They are sold in'thiscity at the Bowery Medicine
Store, 260 'Bowery.

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 Facult
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 :-Ltpes V e-
neria Scorbutus, Scrofula, Elephantiasis, and, in
short, all diseases arising from a vitiated state of the
blood. His experience is very great. His success as-
tonishing. In many thousands of cases committed to
his care, of all grades and every degree of malignancy,
he has speedily restored his patients to health and a
He cautions the unfortunate against the abuse o
mercury. 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 particularly cautious of thosc afflictions.
What a dreadful inheritance to transmit to posterity. I
Persons afflicted with protracted and deplorable cases
need not despair of a complete recovery, by applying
to 1)r. 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 money,
(where they vainly hope to save ) and ruin for ever
Persons who may have contracted disease, or sus
pect latent poison, are invited to make application to

residence of thirty-two years in New-York city, has
