various preparations in time masoamMryin near
for controlling the water under all possible con-
tingencies, i would require a long nd sien-
tific article to describe, and with that our rea-.
ders would have a very inadequate idea of ihi
works. There has been vry little rain oB the
line of the Croton f, two months past, yet no
one who looks at thepresent nuagnitume of the
stream, would doubt its capacity to supply our
city forages to come, though it should continue
to grow at the most rapid ratio of any previous
years. At distances of one mile a circular,
hollow towers erected over the aqueduct, for
the purpose of'ventilatton. These being e om-
posed of white marble, produce very pretty
effect. Every three miles is an apparatus for
drawing off the water in case any internal re-
patirs should be necessary. Just above Sing
Sing the trunk penetrates by tunnels through
several hills, and passes the ravines between
these by alternate embankments. At this point
a party of the gentlemen walked through sec-
tion of the aqueduct half a mile long, which
had been lighted for the purpose by candles
upon the wall at distances of thirty or forty
feet, The effeSiwas peculiar and beautiful.
Ti'he passage a6rded ampleI breadth for three
men to walk abreast. The most imposing
structure of the whole work is the great bridge
atSing Sing.I It is composed chiefly of one
grand arch of eighty-eight feet span, thrown
over a deep ravine, so that, from the apex of
the arch to the bottom of the ravine, must be a
hundred feet. This vast arch was so firmly
laid in its abutments, and so accurately built in
its superstructure, that sincethe uprights were
removed from beneath the arch, it has settled
but one inch. One inch in an arch of eighty-
eight feet, with an elevation of one hundred.
So little settling in such a work, we are told,
has never before occurred. The whole quan-
tity of land which the Water Commissiaoners
have ben compelled to buy on the forty miles
of the works, amounts to nine hundred acres;
and the average price has been nearly five hun-
dred dollars. The prices haveumiformly been
enormous, being fixed by the appraisement of
neighbors who in many instances had lands of
their own to be appraised in the same way.
The land still remains, a large part of it, for
the use of the former owners, and well nigh as
valuable for their use as before the aqueduct
was run through it. In addition to this, the
owners have sold rocks which were only in
their way, for large sums in cash, and sand
banks fo'r hundreds of dollars which W not
worth so many cents before;, -y a Er are
sorry to say that thesevery people who ave
made their fortunes out of this great public
work, are so exceedingly unreasonable, that
They seem well nigh combined in hostility to
extort every cent more which they can, under
any possible pretext.
But we will stop here, saying only that this
great work, which was at first set down to cost
five millions of dollars, is now put at twelve
millions; three-fourths of a million to be ex-
pended upon the absurd high bridge over Har-
laem river.

From the London Times.
SOUTH AUSTALIA.-A letter received from
a resident in South Australia, containing in
some detail a description of that country, is
worth adverting to now that thie emigration to
that locality is so much on the increase.
Hle begins with the important assertion that
the climate is not so healthy as it has been re-
ported, bearing out this general statement with
the facts that hehas seen four or five funerals
go tp the cemetery every day, and that a per-
son is rarely seen more than 50 years old. A
place where emigrants, before they can obtain
employment, are allowed to stay, which is
called "Emigration Square," is remarkable for
mortality. It is no uncommon occurrence for
seven or eight to die in the course of a week.
The weather recently had been unpleasantly
hot, the thermometer being 108 or 112 degrees
in the shade, and 135 to 140 in the sun. The
wind is exceedingly high, and the dust which
is raised by it, to a great extent, penetrates in-
to every crevice. The river Torrens is de-
scribed as having become so small that a four
inch pipe would convey more water. From
the pools which it leaves in some places, and
which are very deep, the inhabitants get their
water, but this is so full of animalculve that in
hot weatherit requires to be used immediately.
The writer of the letter procures water from a
well 150 yards off, for which a price is paid.
Fleas are found to be a grievous nuisance; they
are supposed to breed in the dust, and to be
carried into the houses, in swarms whenever
there is a gale of wind. At all events, it is
after a storm that they are most abundant. An-
other nuisance is a small fly resembling our
blue-bottles, which deposit their young alive,
and renderit necessary to cover closely all the
meat. T'he heat of the weather, it is said,
dries the bread to such a degree that it can
only be eaten new. The beef Dever gets

Correspondence of the Army and tNavy Chronicle.
F.OaRIDA, July -, 1840.
It has rained ever since, and including, the
30th of June, excepting one day; and in Florida
most truly is the saying good, "it never rains
but it pours." It is my opinion that most all
the Indians are drowned outof the everglades,-
and are now roaming about Middle Florida.
The war never can be ended until the savages
are cut off from supplies; they will be joined by
whites, and I only wonder that more do notjoin
the marauders. There never was a better
theatre for land piracy than poor Florida is now.
If I had any influence I would advise that an
appropriation be made for hemp, to hang a
squad of pale-faces, who infest the country,
much more to its detriment than a troop of red-
skins. It would have a good effectto JAmbris.
terize a few of them.
I verily believe that this war cannot possibly
be ended without at least 100,000 men in the
field at once; and not then, without the most
vigilant guard on the coast with armed steam-
ers; for even were the Indians all gone, white
men, especially Spaniards from the islands,
would continually plunge into the woods, paint
and dress as Indians, and plunder and kill,
Should the war ever be ended, Florida will be
a scene of arson, pillage, and murder, for ten
years after, unless it be put under martiallaw,
and no white or black be allowed to gointo the
interior without a passport from some compe-
tent authority.
You don't know how provoking it is to sit
down on a login the rain, while the men are
Imhauling your wagon andmules out of a swamp,
and think of the proceedings of Congress,
which you have read probably the day before:
how Mr. so-and-so spent halfa day in stating
that he had been misrepresented in some news-
paper. At such timesI think to myself, '"there
is a man who gets $8 a day for talking; and
here is a poor soldier who gets $7 a month for
working like' a beaver." They give us but
little credit at the north for our sufferings and
privations here; no one out of Florida knows
what they are.
Well, be it so. What are swamps to a
mnhmer ofC(ongress with a good comfortable
fire to warm his feet by, before he jumps into
bed? What are hammocks to a rotund alder-
man who employs four horses to haul him
homeward, What are long, dreary marches,
through torrents of rain, to an editor who wears
corks soles to avoid the dew? Let every city
sportsman who is caught out ina shower, hunt-
ing, think of as in the wet! Let every gen-
tleman, subject to tan, when he forgets his
umbrella, think of us in the pine woods under
a Florida sun! Let every visitor at Saratoga,
when he quaffs his Congress water, think of
us, drinking our solution of rotten limestone!
and I reckon they will thank their stars they
never listed. A week or a month is small po-
tatoes, but when it comes to not only a year,
but the plural, it is too much of a good thing.
If Congress were compelled to hold their
sessions in the everglades, and continue there
until the war was ended, I will bet my old
boots that they would pass a bill at one reading
to raise 100,000 men.
It is all a mistaken notion, this keeping regi-
ments in Florida one year after another. New
regiments are best: the assurance of a biennial
change would cheer us up. But now we are
worn out and disheartened; and all ourglorious
anticipations consist in being sent out with
broken down constitutions on sick leave, or
finding a grave in the wilderness. Our troops
are brave, possess fortitude, and laugh as much
as any body-between chills. How wonder-
ful is the composition of man! how amazing
the effect of discipline! that with so brilliant a
prospect ahead, they still maintain their ardor
and their spirits.
Never was a regiment more unfit for a sum-
mer in Florida than the 6th; it is a regiment of
victims. They have suffered severely from
the day they won immortality at Okechobee,
to this houar. A year or two of respite, out of
Florida, is certainly its due.

PETROLEUM OIL WELL.-About ten years
since, whilst boring forsalt water, near Burks-
ville, Ky., after penetrating through solid rock
upwards of 200 feet, a fountain of pure oil was
struck, which was thrown up more than twelve
feet above the surface of the earth. Although
in quantity somewhat abated after the die-
charge of the few minutes, during which it was
supposed to emit 75 gallons a minute, it still
continued to flow for several days successively.
The well being on the margin and near the
mouth of a small creek emptying into Cumber-
land River, the oil soon found its way thither,
and for a long time covered its surface. Some,
gentlemen below applied a torch, when the sur-
face of the river blazed, and the flames soon
climbed the most elevated cliffs, and scorched
the summit of the loftiest trees. It ignites free-
ly, and produces flames as brilliant as gas. Its
qualities were then unknown; but a quantity
was barreled, most of which soon leaked out.
It is so penetrating as to be difficult to confine
in a wooden vessel, and has so much gas as fre-
quently to burst bottles when filled and tightly
corked. Upon exposure to the air it assumes
a greenish ihue. It is extremely volatile; has
a strong, pungent and indescribable smell, and
tastes much like the heart of pitch pine.
Fora short time after the discovery, a small
quantity of the oil would flow whilst pumping
the salt water, which led to the impression that
it could always be drawn by pumping. But
all subsequent attempts to obtain it, except by
a spontaneous fio,liave entirely failed. There
'havebeen two such flows within the last two
years. The last commenced pn the 4th of July
last, and continued about six weeks, during
which time twenty barrels of oil were obtained".
The oil and the salt water, with which it is
invariably combined during these flows, are
forced up by the gas above 200 feet into the
pump, and thence through the spout into a co-
wered troughwhere the water soon becomes
disengaged and settles at the bottom, whilst
tie oil is readily skimmed from the surface.
A rumbling noise resembling distant thunder
uniformly attends thelflowing ofthe'oil, whilst
the gas which. is then visible evry 4ay at the
top of the pump, leads the passing stranger to
ignuire whether the well is on fire.---Aw Or-

S The.Boston Courier represents John Bullas
replying to Mr. Nicholas Biddle, respecting
the honor of our government in fulfilling its
contracts. We copy the greater portion of the
But I will take you on your own ground,
your assumption of the purity and honor of the
American government, in filling its oW-
tracts,and performing its promises to the letter.,
You say that it has paid off its national debt
in full, and even its three per cents at par. If
this were true, (which it is not,) I could, not-
withstanding, refer you to many still unsettled
debts, which your government has fr years,
with an overflowing treasury, refused to liqui-
date. I might mention the "Massachusetts
claim," so called, which, after more than
twenty years passed in applications for pay-
meat, yet remains unsettled. I could name
others, much more unjustifiable and oppressive
-individual claims, whichli are passed overby
your Congress, from year to year,without set-.
tlement, while the claimants are not only suf-
fering for want of the money, but,what is more
outrageous and indefensible, have expended, in
attendance at Washington, more than the
whole amount of their claims; soa6 that, if these
claimsshould ever be allowed and paid, tha
will be no surplus for the claimant. All wil
have been sunk, losht, swallowed up, by the
fault, the inexcusablenieglect of your govern-
ment alone.
But I have something more in point than
this, You say, that the British government,
in the time of Charles II. borrowed, at eight
per cent. interest, a certain sum; and after-
wards, under William I. funded it, with the
interest, and thenceforward allowed, on the
gross sum, interest, at the rate of only three per
cent., making the principal extinguishable by
paying half the sum. Well, this, if done at
all, was done centuries ago, under a different
government, different ideas of right, different
customs and different men. But look at your
own government-not half a century ago--a
government, of which your boasted Washing-
ton was the head-at a time too, when you
you had just gained your independence, and
should have felt grateful and liberal to those
who had expended their blood and trea-
sure in acquiring it--at a time, too, when the
public creditors, the soldiers who had fought
and bled for you, were alive and before your
eyes-I say, under circumstances like these,
look at your own government. It did, indeed,
fund these claimsat last; the original principal
at six per cent. interest; but the interest which
had then accrued, (probably nearly equal to
the principal itself, and as justly due) was
funded at only three per cent. interest. Here
is a case, similar, in this respect, to that of
which you accuse the English; but at a period,
and under circumstances, which render it more
inexcusable, and much more liable to censure.
But I have something more in point than
even this, bad as it is; and I have reserved itto
the last, in order to strike you dumb, and over-
whelm you with confusion. Among the claims
so funded by your American government, in
1790, was a very large sum, in "bills of credit,
issued by authority of the United States in
Congress assembled." But none of these,for
whi the faith of the United States was pledged,.
were funded at par. But at what rate were
they funded Not lees, you will say, than fif-
ty per cent., the rate you have censured in the
British government. Even this would be
worse than we were; forwe allowed interest on
the whole, while it remained unpaid; but you
did not allow interest on the whole, nor evenI
half. But what did you do! Hear it, and
shut your month forever. Your government
funded, andfSially PAID, allhis immense amount

That is, at ninety-nine per cent. discount lonly
one cent on the dollar! Say no more, I pray
you, Nicholas Biddle, about the honesty, and
the pnor, and the purity of the United States
and its government, and the want of these vir-
tues in the government and people of Great
Britain. You should have kept quiet, for you
live in a house of glass. The less you say in
disparagement of "our good friends the Eng-
lish," the better; and the less you awaken at-
tention to your own history will also be the
'better. Your old friend, JOHN BUILL.

From the Apalachicola (Fla.) Advertier of Aug. 29th.
At the close of another month we deem it
proper to review the past, and speak of our
city historically and socially. Since our
last article, under the title prefixed to this,
many changes have occurred. Some of our
associates have departed for their long home-
aye, and one of them our warmest and noblest
friend-others have travelled away to obtain
partners for life, each a most important event.
The insidious hand of disease has taken some
away, Ilttle by little, until the last stretch of
"Death's attenuate finger" was scarcely seen,
so gentle was the step from the earth to the
deeper earth. Others have been taken sudden-
ly and unexpectedly. One, nay two, three,
four and five, at-morning's dawn were full of
busy life, and devising plans for many future
years, looking through imagination's magic
glass at the unknown but hoped for future,
and the next sunset heard the "dust to dust,
and ashes to ashes," wailed over the coffin.
These things are teachings-they nerve the
soul to the path of duty-they are time's les-a.
sons on the uncertainty of time-and well
knowing that life at best is precarious, no igno-
ble sacrifices should be made to snatch a few
hours of disgraceful breath. But enough of
this-let us each learn tie lesson, and profit by
The weather has continued unsettled, mak-
ing more than fifty successive days of showers.
The earth jn this region is absolutely saturat-
ed with water. Still for the last three or four
days it has been very close and sultry. The
air has been heavy and humid, and the conse-
quent plague of insects has already set in. In
the low ground of several of our principal
streets are millions of small toads and their
usual companions, tadpoles. Perennial vege-
tation is almost drowned out. But what to us
has been the most uncommon sight, were flocks
of snipes and curlew peacefully feeding within
a few yards of our door.
Commerce has been more brisk, if the term
brisk can be comparatively applied to a sum-
mer business, than in the last month. Several
vessels have arrived, and some northern pro-
duce been sent up the river. We have even
had a few bales of cotton brought down. Our
general health has been good. Considering
the population, but few deaths have occurred.
It is also gratifying to inform our absent
friends that a disposition t, preserve good
order is general. Sensual excesses are few-
and a spirit ofamenity prevails. Wearewill-

ing to compare morals with any community in
the world, similarly constituted. No robbery
has been committed by an adult-that we have
heard of. We do not believe one individual
in town lives by stealing-nor have we heard
of any professional gaming. In a few words,
we volunteer our testimony to ourabsentfriends,
that we live in a civil an civilized society.
Our city friends will pardon us in this ar-
ticle, in speaking of these things, for it is
written for people abroad. Many persons who
have property here, feel an interest in its se-
curity, and it is proper to communicate freely
to them. Security adds one half to the value
of possession.
One more feature we will notice, and we
have done with the state of society. In many
parts of this Territory it is absolutely proper
for individuals to wear arms. Here no such
necessity exists. Brave men walk without
fear. None but the fearful carry arms on or-
dinary occasions. A man who sternly does
his duty, publicly and privately, feels a securi-
ty in his own rectitude.-In the path of duty,
no one in thib city has any cause to fear -per-
soal violence from any citizen of this *ce,
and only in the path of duty can any man pro-
perly elim proptetion Sogeneral is this
Bfeelingthat we knfiow ofno one who carries

THi ROYAL GEORGo.-Since our last notice
of the operations the removal of the wreck has
been going on gularly; usually three times
a-day, with little interruption from weather.
Three divers haie been constantly employed,
and they have nrover failed -to sling some part
of the wreck at uich descent; but about one-
half of the large beams or floor-timbers and
ceiling-planks hare generally broke in tearing
them out of the nud. All the divers report
that the tides are continually washing the mud
away to a level, it proportion as fragments are
got up. The chief curiosities brought up have
been a number of broken squares of glass, a
widow-frame, two posts of a large bedstead,
and a number of spare locks from the carpen-
ter's store-room, the brass-work of which is
perfect, but the iron parts are either gone or
much decayed; ato a large telescope, with
the wooden tube much bruised on one side, and
the object or field glass gone, but with the
brass and the small glasses perfect; the slider
which covered the eye-glass only being want-
ing. The words "Dollond, London," mark
the celebrated maker, and the workmanship
is excellent, the parts of the small brass tubes
unscrewing and screwing up again in as per-
fect a manner as if it had been made yester-
day. A sword was also got up from thesame
spot, The proportion of wreck brought up
now is much less than it was last year, or at
the commencement of this season, because
most of the large pieces have been removed,
so that little more than the contents ef the hld
remain, with the flo3r-timbers, kelson, andI
keel; and until the hold is cleared the latter is
not vry accessible, except at the extreme ends,
and nw the former position of the main-hatch-
way, which the last great explosion cleared
event thefloor-timbers. Colonel Pasley has
decided on firinganother great charge, the cra-
ter of which being half-way between that of
the last charge and the remaining part of the
bow, will clear the whole part of the wreck
from mud. This explosion will take place on
the 5th August. Should a gale of wind render
it inexpedient to fire it on that day, it will be
put off till 6th or 7th August.-English paper.

WONDERFUL MACHINE.-A great degree of
interest has recently been excited in Pmesburg
by the invention ot a machine which promises
to effect a wonderful revolution in the art of
printing. The inventor is a person named
Joseph Von Kliegel, andthe machine is said
to possess the twofold power of superseding
the operation of the hands in composing and
sortingor distributing types. Only the model
has, as yet, been produced; but a committee
has been formed at Presburg, under the super-
intendence of Count Ludwig Bathyany, for
the purpose or raising the funds necessary for
the construction of the machine. Von Kliegel
has given to his invention the name of Typo-
graphische Schnellsez-und-Sorter machine.
Though capable of conjoint operation in tlhe
process of composing and distributing types,
yet the two powers of the machine, being quite
distinct and independent of each other, are ca-
pable of acting separately. Herr Von Kliegel
has pledged himself first to complete that por-
tion of the machine applicable to type-sorting.
A sheet of Cicero type may, it is said, be
broken up and distributed within the duration
of an hour and a half by an operation which
requires no manual aid, and may be made to
act day and night like clock work. In the
course ofa day ten sheets may be broken up
and distributed. The composing machine is
with the distributing machine, so that the type
boxes may be instantaneously transferred from
the latter to the former. The distributing ma-
chine is worked by means of a handle, turned
like that of a mangle. The composing ma-
chine acts by means of a key-board, like that
of a piano forte, which musthe touched by the
compositor. It is expected that by the aid of
this invention, words may be composed as ra-
pidly as they are spelt. Even a slow, unprac-
tised compositor, may compose a sheet of Ci-
cero type in an hour and a 'half; and he requires
no other help than that of a boy to lift from
the machine each page as it is completed.

IUTEMPERANCE IN RussIA.-Nearly a fourth
part of the revenue of Russia is derived from
the sale of spirits. This sale is kept entirely
in the hanlst% the imperial government. The
outspread wings of the Russian eagle are over

only spirit of which travellers make mention.
Mr. Pinkerton calculates, that "the enormous
quantity of eighty-two millions of gallons of
brandy alone are drunk every year by the pea-
santry of that empire." The population being
over sixty millions, it amounts to one gallon
and a third for each person. 'In Scotland, how-
ever, it must be remembered, that parliamenta-
ry returns give three gallons of spirits as the
average quota of every man, woman and child

Rev. Thomas Brainerd of this city delivered
a lecture on the nature andotendency if theatri-
eal amusements, in the Third Presbyterian
Church, on Sunday evening, Sept. '. The
discourse was reported for the Public Ledger,
from which we copy it. The views which it
presents will commend themselves to theappro-
bation of every reader.
TEXT, I Cor., chap. xv., ver. 33:-"Be not
deceived, evil communications corrupt good
If any apology be deemed necessary for the
present effort to set before this audience the
real nature and effects of the Stage-the true
character and tendency of theatrical amuse-
ments-consider, flrst, that six theatres are now
opened, or are about to be opened, the present
season, in this city and Liberties. As every
evening is occupied, and as full audiences must
be secured in order to defray the expenses of
these large establishments, it will be seen that
a great number of our citizens are destined to
come under their influence for good orevil.
Secondly-Reflect that if ministers of the
gospel be silent, the public press, with afew
honorable exceptions, is daily occupied in com-
mending theatres to the patronage ofthis com-
munity. The tipldndor of the'edic methe
beauty of the decorations, the sweetness of
their music, and the skill and fascination of the
actors, are daily described and applauded.
These journals, inviting and urging allto the
theatre, find the way to the shop of the artisan,
the store of the merchant, and the study of the
clergyman, and, like the frogs of Egypt, they
obtrude themselves into every dwelling.
Though these fulsome and perpetual com-
mendations of the stage appear often as edito-
rial, yet we are not hence to infer that they are
all written by the respectable editors of our
daily papers. I understand they are generally
furnished by those having a pecuniary interest
in theatres, and inserted as the price of a sea-
son ticket for the editor and his family.
But the effect on the public mind is not les-
sened by the fact that the editors, instead of
writing themselves, lend their columns to
others. To our children and youth, these daily
adulations of theatres, plays and actors come
sustained by all that respect and confidence
which they cherish for the able and worthy
conductors of the press in this city.
Add to this daily commendation of the press,
the fact that theatre bills are found in every
public room, on the corners of our streets, and
even attached to the walls of our churches, and
you see the confidence with which the stage
obtrudes itself upon the notice of the commu-
nity, and the ubiquity of its temptations.
Thus we are gravely assured that one thea-
trical establishment is so pure in its arrange-
ments that it is proper for all persons, includ-
ing clergymen, of course, to attend. And in
regard to the actors in this concern, a public
journal, which comes daily into my family,
says one is "capital and graceful," another is
"glorious," and a third, al actress, is a "fixed
We see how these establishments force
themselves upon ournotice. We see how they
are commended to our families. Shall we put
away the prejudices of education, and go with
our children to share in the amusements of the
theatre? I am no enemy to necessary recrea-
tion and safe amusements.
Theatres areeither safe or pernicious-either
moral or immoral-in their tendency. If they
be moral and instructive, as they claim to be,
then it is my duty to urge you to go, and my
duty to lead the way. Jf, on the other hand,
they be wasteful of time and money, and most
pernicious in their moral bearing, then I am
under a solenw obligaftion to warn this audi-
ence against their influence. If theatres be
necessary and safe, it is not enough that the
pulpit is silent it must mingle its voice with
the daily press in chanting their praises. But
if these establishments be always pernicious-
if from their very nature they are fountains of
moral corruption and the pests of society-then
the more embellished and attractive, and the
more commended by the daily press, by so
much the more is every preacher of the gospel
under obligations to strip off their false cover-
ingand raise a salutary note of alarm.
You see that 1 am compelled to adopt one
of these alternatives, and you have anticipated
which I shall adopt. These are public insti.
tutions dailyforced on your attention and mine.
Believing them to be most mischievous in
their moral tendency, most ruinous to the hap-
piness of families, and most fatal to the pros-
pects, temporal and eternal, of our youth, who
has a right to complain if I express concerning
them my deliberate convictions?
I was never in a theatre in this city; I never
in my life, to my knowledge, exchanged a
word with a theatre .proprietor or actor; and,
of course, have no pique to gratify and no
temptation to indulge in personalities.
In speaking of the impurity of the theatres,
I may be compelled to use very plain language.
This I know the friends of truth and of virtue
will approve; and I am certainly under no ap-
prehension of offending the modesty of such
ladies as can listen to the plays of Shakspeare
and Fielding without a blush.
The first objection which I shall urge against
theatrical amusements, is their waste of time.
This is an argument better estimated at the
close of life than in its progress. However
anxious some may be to kill time in the days
of health and prosperity, they learn to appre-
ciate its value as its last hours plume their
wings for flight.
It is the practice in theatres to open at 7 or 8
o'clock, P. M.,and to close at 11 or 12 o'clock.
Here are four hours occupied at evening in the
excitements of play.
It is the nature of theatrical amusements to
create a desire for repetition. The thrilling
excitement which they create and sustain, ori-
ginates a disrelish for more sober recreations;
and hence when one has become accustomed
to such amusements at the theatre, he is dis-
satisfied with an evening spent out of the
theatre. The variety of entertainment pro-
vided, and the puffs of the presstend to fix the
habit of constant attendance. Our youth,
then, are invited and urged to occupy four
hours of each day-one-fourth part of their
waking hours-in mere amusement.
I speak not now of the lessons of immorality
which they acquire, or of the baleful associa-
tions which they form; it is enough to con-
demn these amusements that they rob, without
compensation, our youth of that time which
constitutes their day of probation.
Four hours of the evening devoted to laugh-
ing at comic buffoonery or weeping luxurious-
ly at catastrophes of mock tragedy I
Employ this time in business, and with the
blessing of God it is transmuted into the means
of present competence and future wealth.
Employ it in useful reading or in attendance
at Lyceums and public lectures, and it accu-
mulates a treasure of useful knowledge to be
the oheerer of solitude-.the means of resnect-

ability and usefulness-the ornament of wealth
and the refuge of adversity.
Occupy these wasted hours in the family
circle in cheerful converse, and in united ef-
forts to promote social felicity, and they would
render home a spot verdant and beautiful in
the desert of the world.
Occupy these hours in seeking out and re-
lieving the sorrows of the poor, the sick, the
homeless stranger, and in binding up the heart
crushed under life's woes, and you light up
many a gloomy dwelling with renewed hope
and peace; you rekindle warmth on the cold
hearth of the orphan and make the heart of the
widow sitting desolate and solitary to sing for
Use these hours for tiheservice of Goad in the
closet-the social meeting and the sanctuary,
or in active efforts to restore the prodigal ex-
iled and starving, to the bread of his father's
house, and you open, by thegraceeofGod, over
your own undying spirit, a window through
which the light and peace of a better world
dawns upon your hopes, and you prepare your-
self as one who has turned many'to.righteous-
ness to shine as a star, undimmed even hy the
brightness of Heaven's firmament, forever and
ever. With the possibility, the necessity,the
privilege-nay, the aolemn duty of using time

and found guilty by ci antial and p-
tive testimony, but as the law of heStae
does not recognize slave testimony against a
white, they could not, by a legal tribunal, be
found guilty to suffer death, as they would
have been, had the testimony been admissible.
They were, however, sentenced by Judge
Lynch to a severe flogging. with orders to leave
the State at the peril of theiies.

THE AM'ISTAD AFRICArs.-A the Circuit
Court held at Hartford on the 17h instant,
(the case of the Amislad Africans having been
continued from the last term o the Court, to
enable the counsel to agree on a statement
the facts preparatory to the appeal to the Su-
preme Court.) a motion was made by R. S.
Baldwin, Eqq. to dismiss the appeal, from the
District Court, on the groundht it appeared
from the record of the District Court that the
allegations in the libels of Ruiz and nte
that the Afticans were their property, were
found not to be true;-and that no appeal hav-
ing been taken by them from the decree of that
Court. the question of property as conclu-
sively settled; that the nted States had no
t interest to authorise an appeal in their name
and that it appeared fromhe publihedcor-

PENNY PosTAGEu IN ENOLAND.-From the of- Te
ficial tables published in the Londn Morning
Chronicle, it appears that under the old rates

74.923,836. and the revenue2,374923. -
der the uniform rate of fourpence in 1839 the
number of such letters was ,05 1.2,andthe
revenue 1,610,160, thus exhibit an o
crease of letters of 35 percent, and a aling in
the revenue of 38 per cent.aking five months

expenditure of the Post Office i about 600,a
000 a year, and as the present revenue may b
estimated as above, there is a clear profitrofn
'599,7,23 per annum. The aatee antic- a
pates that by the end of the year the revenue d
will be, in round numbers, 100,000, or 0
per cent neil profit. It is quite evident from 0
the experiment now made, that the uniform
charge of one half penny would cover the ex-
penses of the post office, and eve realize a
profile; but as the Briih pst office is an
important branch of revenue, no uther re-
duction can be anticipated, though private
individuals have offered to pay a large sum
annually to the government for the privilege
of so doing.-N. Y. Sun

CoCRAN'a s PATENT oMB C o.-By in-
vitalion of Mr. Poehran, we attended the -
hibition of his patent bomb cannon at te Cs
tle Carden, and saw with astonishment the
incalculable advantages which this gun p-
sesses over those of the old construction. For
throwing hollow shot or shells from fortresses
or ships, its superiority is very obvious. There
is no recoil from the piece, it can always be
kept steady at the port hole, and gunner
may be keeping it point blanc on his object,
L during the time it is loading-may discharge
it instanter, almost with the same precion

Sme!nd Thus a stream of or shells ne
* kept perpetually pouring from this terrible
* weapon; and it is demonstrable that one stesm-
er with two sixty-four pounder could cope

* danger from explosion is so entirely done
n away, that the gun may be charged with a

P bers, of which there are three, never etu-
s ciently heated to explode powder, aniey are
charged in perpendicular position. After every
fire, a draft of cool air passes through the bar-
rel and the chambers, which are of small depth
o and great thickness of metal.

MR, O'CONNELL commenced his repeal agi-

on the 27th of August. It was attended, of
course, by almost the whole Irish population,
who displayed their usual enthusiasm. Mr.
O'Connell was the only speaker. In the
course of his remarks he glorified the Queen,
as one who would be sure to render "justice to
Ireland," and exclaimed with true Milesian
fervor, "May she live long and be glorious-
may her husband love her better than the
husband of any otlfer woman in the British
empire, and may they have more children than
my grand-mother, who had two and twenty."

evening the following accident occurred on the
Blackwall railway:--A man named HenIry
Tanner, in the employ of the Company, was
standing on the line about a mile andi a half
from the terminus, when, perceiving a train of
carriages coming in each direction, he imme-
diately jumped out of the way, and stood clear
of the rails. On the trains passing each other
the gust of wind occasioned by the swift mo-
tion of the vehicles was so great that Tanner
was dashed with considerable force against one
of the carriages, having a most narrow escape
of falling under the wheels. The violence with
which he struck the carriage, however, caused
him to rebound against the wall. One of the
guards picked up the man, who was found to
be quite insensible, and with the assistance of
two of the railway police he was immediately
conveyed to the London Hospital, Mile-end
road; where on examination it was ascertain-
ed that he had received a severe concussion of
the brain, and of so dangerous a nature as to
leave no hopes of his recovery.-Londonpaper.

iTHe Jews.-The charges against the Jews
at Rhodes have been investigated and disprov-
ed, and the Pacha of Rhodes has been dismiss-
ed from his post. A similar investigation of
the affair of the murder of Father Thomas at
Damascus, and of the dreadful tortures inflict-
ed on the Jews of that city, is going forward
with every probability of the total innocence of
the Jews being made apparent.

wrong course and went to Cyprus, then to Da-

DCLIUNE Or DESPOTiSM.--''he London trea-
ty between the five powers, and its possible
consequences in ease France should let loose
the dogs of war, and scatter the firebrands of
revolution over the continent, seem to have had
a good effect in bringing some of the despotic
sovereigns to their reason. The tyrant King
of Hanover has thought it most prudent to
yield to his states the right of rejecting laws
submitted to them, a right of which his majes-
ty did infamously deprive them until now-
and it is not unlikely that he will be compell-
ed to make other concessions. The King of
Prussia has conciliated his Catholic subjects
on the question of mixed marriages, and has
proclaimed a general amnesty.
AFFAIRS OF SvaIA.-Accounts in the Prus-
sian State Gazette affirm that the revolt in Sy-
ria is not so completely pacified as is generally
supposed. Numerous emissaries are said to
be at the present moment dispersed through the
Heraz, and doubtless the determination of the
powers to wrest Syria from the tyranny of Me-
hemet will strengthen the numbers of the dis-
affected. The Druses acting in unison with
other tribes have declared the Prince of Leba-
non to be suspended from his government, and
have proclaimed as his successor the young
Emir Faur of the family of the Sheadi. The
troops of Mehenmet in Syria are reported at
90,000 men, and a considerable force is sta-
tioned in the Delta. The Frenclh consider this
force sufficient to repel aggression on the part
of the allied powers, who would have some
difficulty in transporting fo Egypt or Syria so
large a number of troops.

francs a day for their support! They refuse to
serve in the army of Algeria,.n the plea tha .
their principles will not permit them to identi-

government offers to brigade them on public
works. They do not like labor, and the point
now to be determined is, how to starve them
into work, or to procure an amnesty which will
permit them to return to Spain.
ALGIERS.-A letter of the 7th August, from
Qran, speaks of the great dearth of provisions
in consequence of the continual ravages of the
harvests by fire. Abdel Kader is preparingto
attack the French with vigor. A new impulse
lhas been given to the Arab population. The
west, which had endeavored to shake off the
yoke of the tyrant, is agalh tranquil, and has
been compelled to pay heavy contributions.
The heat of the climates complained of as ex-
cessive. The victualling of the French camps
is carried on with great difficulty, and requires
the escort of an entire column, which is a
source of harrassing fatigue to the troops. In
order to avoid attack the marches are long and
rapid, which, in a climate of burning winds,
destroy great numbers. The men on the road
fall by dozens at a time, from a sort of apo-
pletic stroke. Bleeding is resorted to in such
cases, but often to no purpose. The last con-
voy brought back six dead bodies.
The plain of the Metidga, near Algiers, is
again in the power of the Arabs, whosetfire to

EGYPT.-Advices from Cairo of the 28th of

to be most actively engaged in preparations for
war. A letter from the Viceroy, received on
the 29th, ordered all the laborers employed in
the manufactories to be incorporated in the na-

PERsIA.-Advices from Tabriz, dated July
16th, intimate the probability. of war between
Turkey and Persia, on the disputed frontier
question. The Shah was concentrating his
forces and marching on Hamadan.
The Paris correspondent of the N. Y. Com-
mercial Advertiser writes:
The accounts from Beyrout concurin stating
that the excesses of the Egyptians in putting
down the revolt surpassed every thing hitherto
known. After pardon had been granted to se-
veral of the revolted districts, and to the local
chiefs, an indiscriminate massacre and pillage
of the inhabitants and villages commenced.
Almost every inhabitant was burnt, and a con-
siderable number of convents were included in
the conflagration. The Druses, who had been
the first to rise and encourage the rest, were
the first to yield in consequence of their having
been bribed by Mehemet. The treatment ;of
the women and children was terrible beyond
description. The sons of Emir Becher and
Emir Haydar were treacherous in the extreme.
One instance deserves to be signalized. Some
villages on the coast of Seydowere reduced to
ashes, and twenty-four of their aged inhabit-
ants were forced by the soldiers to carry two
hundred weight of silver, besides other valua-
bles, to the Egyptian camp. On their deposit-
ing their loads they were immediately shot.
These atrocities have induced the Syrians
again to takeup arms in various parts. Near
Tripoli the remaining insurgents are numbered
at five thousand, but on the first outbreak they
numbered twenty thousand.
Affecting diplomatic letters have been ad-
dressed to the ambassadors of France and Eng-
land by the chiefs of the oppressed Syrians,
detailing the horrible acts of the tyranny of
Mehemet, and supplicating France to lend a
hand for their deliverance. ,

SIaiPATMOSpsEiatc RAuwAv,-aThe .xri-
meats on the line of railroad which runs omm
the Uxbridge road, near Shepherd's-bish,
across Wormwood Scrubs, to the line of the
Great Western Railroad, and on which car-
riages are propelled by means of the atmos-
phere forcing its way into an exhausted tube
or pipe laid down between the rails, on the
principle for which Messrs. Clegg and Samuda
have obtained patents, have attracted conside-
rable attention. The experiments were a few
days ago attended by the Government Comn-
missioners, Sir Frederick Smith and Professor
Barlow, who examined every part with the
most minute attention, and witnessed the
transit of the carriage along the line. Several
of the most eminent engineers and practit-
men were also present, and expressed thm-
selves perfectly satisfied with the result.
The carriages travel at the rate of 30 milesan
hour, apparently by magic. Those who have
been accustomed to see the cumbrous locogo-
tive engines roaring and smoking along *te
lines of railroad, will be astonished to see a
train moving with the rapidity of 30 miles an
hour, without any perceptible power to put it
in motion, and it is difficult to persuade many
persons of the fact that trains can be impelled
by means so simple as those employed.-

RAILWAY SUPERVISiON.-The bill establish-
ing a system of supervision over the railway
companies has passed the House of Lords,
and become the law of the land,precisely as
it was sent up by the House of Commons.
It ia in the first instance provided that true
copies of all bye-laws, rules and regulations
already made by the railway companies, shall
be furnished to the Board 'of Trade within two
calendar months after the passing of the act,
otherwise they cease to have any legal force.
Secondly, no future bye-laws shall, without
special permission, be valid or have force un-
til two months after they have been submitted
to the Board of Trade. Thirdly, the Board of
Trade have a general power of disallowing all
bye-laws at their discretion, and by their cer-
tificate to authorise the prosecution of the com-
parties by the Attorney General of England
and Ireland, and the Lord Advocate of Scot-
land, to enforce the provisions of the act, or
any of the railway acts, any breach of which
they may consider injurious to the public in-
From the Paris Consttuttoannl.
The importance of the insurrection of the
mountaineers has been exaggerated. Ibralhim
Pacha, surprised in 1833 by ai almost general
rising of tho people of Syria and Palestine, al-
though at the first onset ie was obliged to shut
himself op in Jerusalem, ultimately defeated
the insurgents with great ease. He is now
more powerful tban he was in 1833, his troops
are more practised in war, and the rebellion
does not extend beyond the chain of Lebanon,
the population of which does not exceed
400,000 souls, and is composed of three races
-the Ansarias, the Druses, and the Maronites.
The Ansarias, who reckon 60,000 souls and
occupy the northern part of the chain inthe en-
virons of Tripoli, are idolators, mixing, how-
ever, in their worship, sometimes Mahometan
and sometimes Christian rites. The impor-
tance of this tribe is comparatively very tri-
fling. The Druses and Maronites, although
following different creeds, have mutual politi-
cal relations. The Maronites are Catholics,
who, having in the sixth century been persecu-
ted by the Greeks, took refuge in the Lebanon.
The Druses are a sect of Mahometans, whom
their co-believe'rs drove from their country.
Common safety drove the Druses and Mar@-
nites to combine in the defence- of their new
country. It was not till the reign of Auirath
III. >tlWiey we'r brought unde-ifte domnion
of the Turks; but they were allowed to have a
chief taken from among themselves. The

race of this chief becoming extinct, the au-
thority was transferredto an Arab, fiom whom
Emir Bechir, the present chief of the Dr uses,
is descended. He was a powerful Prince
when the French army entered Syria, and he
has ruled the Druses and Maropites for 45
years. He is commander of all the forces of
the country, and it is by his order alone that
the people can take up arms; he is the only
medium for the execution of the directions of
the government; he raises the taxes, which are
levied according to the number of mulberry-
trees or acres of land possessed by each in-
habitant, and out of whieh;be ays the tribute.

At the meeting held in Faneuil Hall, Boston,
on Friday the llth, Mr. Webster presided,
and on taking the chair made a short speech
which is reported as follows in the Boston
Gentlemen: The particular purpose of our
meeting this morning, is to pay our respects to
those Officers and Soldiers of the Revolutionary
Army who honor this occasion with their pre-
sence. It is now my most welcome duty to
tender to them, in your names, your felicita-
tions and salutations.
Officers and Soldiers of the Revolutionary
Army! The vast assemblage of the free citi-
zens of New England here present, the great
numberof ourfellow-citizens from other States,
who met yesteTday at Bunker Hill to express
their opinions upon political topics, have in-
structed me to tell you of the pleasure they
felt at seeing you among them. They bear
your name. They came together yesterday as
Whigs, and as Whigs you fought amid the
fire and blood of the Revolution. Venerable
Fathers! they will not dishonor that name upon
which you have conferred renown so imper-
ishable. If we understand your principles,
they are our principles. We inherit them; we
cherish them; and we will transmit them as
our best legacy to our children. There is no
man who can remain unmoved, if, in any as-
sembly, he meets with even a small remnant
of that gallant band who fought where we only
discuss, and who poured out their blood in
defence of that spot where we meet to confer.
And I undertake to say that the Whigs of this
generation, both in public and in private, and
in all things upon which they are called to act
-if they have not been before others, ethers
at least have not been before them in the re-
pect and gratitude they pay to the Whigs of
the Revolution. I call upon the records of our
public councils.-upon the traditionary history
of the land-upon the general recollection of
the whole country to bear me witness in this
respect. Soldiers, your sons are not deficient
in filial duty to you, nor in gratitude for your
revolutionary efforts.
It is now fifteen years since, when, in the
presence of that great man, the early and firm
friend of America-LAFAYETTz-we assem-
bled on Bunker Hill to lay the foundation of
that monument which has since made some
progress, and which is destined to perpetuate
to thle latest posterity the achievements of the
men who fought, and some of whom fell, in
the contest of the 17th of June, 1775. Your
number then was larger. Time has had his
operation upon you, and to-day you are few.
Yet I have the high pleasure of announcing to
my fellow-citizens that there are here soldiers
who took part in the contest on Bunker Hill.
They have lived to see this day, to partake in
the deliberations of this convention; and, hav-
ing already said that the Whigs of the present
time are not behindhand in gratitude to them,
I will now say, that in my judgment, taking
the whole country through, nine-tenths of the
revolutionary soldiers are with us. It is no
new banner we carry. It is no new name we
bear. Our fathers are with us-and their
generation, and our generation, and that genera-
tion which is rising up, are moving forward
with united strength, in an effort for the im-
provement of our government. Wethank you
for coming among us. Your venerable pre-
sence cheers us. The grasp of your hand
encourages us. We feel that we are right-
that our cause is good-or else your hearts
would not go with us. And we pledge our
Wtb our character, our honor, in the presence
of you, our tatrerqtnat we will o nuo t tat
cause and those principles which led you on to
meet the shock of a foreign foe-true to that
moral honesty, that love of country, which led
you patriotically to the field-and through
which, thanks to Almighty God, you have
lived to see so rich a harvest secured to your
Gentlemen, there are others around me who
are nearer to you in age. I leave it with them
to finish what I have so imperfectly begun, as
I shall have the honor to introduce them.

IM ENoLAsn.-Taking the British form of gov-
ernment, as it is, with all the imperfections
that appear to us Americans so odious in mon-
archies of whatever shape they may be, it is
undeniable that the English whigs now in
power have conducted or administered it so
far with more directness and purity in relation
to the wide spread interests of the great mass
of the Bntish people, than any Tory or pseudo-
Whig administration that ever preceded that
of Lord Melbourne. Whatever sneers may be
thrown on the very moderate intellectual pow-
ers of this Premier, he is confessedly a man of
good, plain, sound sense, of chastened ambi-
tion, unassuming deportment; and to his
young Queen so mild and courteous, and per-
suasive, that he has won on her approbation
far beyond what the most vaulting, towering
mind of a Pitt, or a Canning, and the sombre
and imposing pretensions of a Wellington or
a Peel, could ever have achieved. For the
same reason Melbourne has touched the right
key with the people, and has studied to please
the great industrial masses-the middling
classes, as the Morning Chronicle truly as-
serts--eschewingon buit sides the ultra-ex-
tremes of Cartism and Car/lim; in other words,
an intolerant priesthood and aristocracy, or
oligarchy of nobles, co-acting, incongruously
with the lowest species of desperadoes and
agrarians. So in our country, no party can at-
tain to or maintain power that, like the En-
glish stories, would look only to themselves
and their own lacquies and hounds, (not blood-
hounds if you please,) and would create a
horde of office holders and a gendarmerie of
infidels to carry their behests into execution at
the point of the bayonet. It is the middling
classes, the great living ocean of population,
whose wishes and 'interests are to be consult-
ed, and whose concurrence is indispensable to
Stht existence of any government. .Te taleBt
of thS press, therefore, is basely prostitutedi,
however high-toned and ably conducted may
be some of the tory journals, when it allies it-

self to principles which are false, in fact, and
as oppressive and tyrannical as they are im-
practicable and disgraceful in this enlightened
age of science and truth. The wheels of re-
volution are propelled forward to the glorious
emancipatiton and amelioration of the human
race with a velocity corresponding to the mi-
raculous progress of mechanical invention, of
the press and of free institutions, which we
have been witnesses to in thia age of steam
power and utilitarianism in which we liveand
the dominant and master feature in which is
the aggrandizement of th e great republiean
family of mankind, at the just acrliice of the
aristocratic few, who would appropriate the
gds and cehattels of this planet to themselvess,
T .heWhiSnprsses in Great Britain exult with:
