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 Steam 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 mediumof 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
Christopher street.
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 eity, 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 "tnd
terms of sale will be given in a future notice.

This volume of 'he Gift is in all respects superior
to its predecessors."-[Gentleman's Magazine.
"A most superb affair, and, with the exception of a
few of the more costly publications of the same kind,
we have no superior to it."-[Boston Post.]
The Gift for 1840, is decidedly the best and most
elegant, not only of its particular family, but of the
race to which it belongs. The binding is particularly
rich and beautiful, and all the engravings, with one ex-
ception, are remarkably beautiful. Of the literary
contents we cau also speak in terms of almost unquali-
fied praise."--[N. Y. Commercial Advertiser.]

HIS Institution was incorporated at the last Ses-
sion of the State Legislature, and is now placed upon
a more satisfactory and more permanent footing.
The Board of Instruction is full and efficient. Every
department is adequately supplied thoroughly to an-
swer its appropriate end.
The character of the Trustees and Officers is such
as to inspire confidence and merit patronage.
By the arrangements for the ensuing Term, the
Principal, the Rev. W. F. WALKER, will give tothe
School his constant superintendence.
Much has hitherto been sacrificed 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 aud private, so
as to render them perfectly comfortable in 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 presentpunc-
tually at the opening.
Charges, as heretofore.
Applications for the admission of pupils may be made
to the Principal, the Rev. W. F. WALKER, persoa-
ally orthrough the post office,or to JOHN W. MITCH-
ELL, Esq., New York.

ant, continues to give Practical Lessons in this most
necessary branch of a mercantile education. Also, to
open, close or adjust accounts, and to write up books.
The course of instruction through which the pupil
passes is thoroughly practical ; and the person of good
capacity who devotes about three weeks to the study
will be qualified to keep correctly and elegantly the ac-
counts of any business.
The student practically opens, conducts, closes and
re-opens a set of partnership accounts; has brought be.
fore him more than a hundred different business trans-
actions, each of which is a subject of remark, conver-
sation and study ; he becomes familiar with the vari-
ous account books from actual use or reference, with
trial balances, balance sheets, various Mercantile cal-
culations in Equation of Payments, Discount, and In-
terest; Exchange, Insurance, &c, &c.

T REV. J. F. SCHROEDER, D. D., Rector.
HIS SEMINARY, which was opened on the
first day of October. offers many peculiar advantages,
for establishing the health, maturing the moral and in-
tellectual discipline, and promoting the present happi-
ness and eternal welfare of such youngladies as may
be admitted members of the Institute. In all its plans
a careful reference has been had to the experience ot
the best Schools in Europe and our own country. Its
charges for board and tuition are moderate; and no
pains will be spared to render it, in all respects, what
the most affectionate and solicitous parent or guardian
can desire. An earnest wish to afford his own daugh-
ters the best opportunities to cultivate their minds and
form their characters, is a pledge to those who may
confide their children and wards to the Rector of this
Institute, that these also will partake of every benefit,
that his observation and experience may enable him to

state that the Winter Term will commence on Mon-

This Institution is exclusively a Boarding School
for young gentlemen. The number being limnite d 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 hie e .. ....--
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-

In Congress, no progress is made in organizing

BANKS AND Loco-FocOISM.--Whatever the ve-
hemence of denunciation used by Loco-Foco ora-
tors and Loco-Foco presses, about election times,
against Banks,-as "fraudulent monopolies," op-
,pressive violations of popular rights, &c. &c.-it
does somehow or other happen, tha; once snugly
seated in power, these same revilers and denoun-
cers become very tame and very reasonable about
Banks, and handle them as gingerly as though they
were quite afraid of doing them harm.
The most recent and striking illustration of this
remark, is in the case of Governor Shannon, of
Ohio, who having been elected in the full blast of
anti-bank, and anti-monopoly, and anti-every-
thing-that-stands-in-the-way-of-office, democracy-
has, nevertheless, in his Message, commended the
banks of that State to the kind consideration and
protection of the Legislature, as institutions indis-
pensable to the welfare of the country.
For this sound opinion, he is denounced publicly
and privately. At Cincinnati, a public meeting of
the purest of the democracy, headed by ex-Senator
Morris, calls upon the State Convention to assemble
at Columbus, on 8th January next, to pass him by
as a candidate, and select some more trustworthy
person for the support of the party next year.
Yet, Gov. Shannon qualified, and might seem,
one would think, to have sufficiently extenuated
the sin of believing banks useful, by a full endorse-
ment of the Sub-Treasury scheme, and entire ad-
hesion, in profession at least, to the divorce of the
people from their own money, collected by their
own agents, under the charge of the Federal Go-
In Virginia, too, where the Richmond Enquirer
publishes semi-weekly most ponderous columns
about the wickedness and mischief of banks-and
whose patriots in Congress prate in as good set
terms as even the Dr. Duncan, of Ohio, or the
roaring Vanderpoel, of Kinderhook-about the
Constitutional currency, and a hard-money govern-
ment,-Virginia makes haste, through her Legis-
lature, to legalize the suspension of her banks-
a suspension wh;ch they did not make even an ef-
fort to avoid, but fell at once.
In all this, we see new evidence of what cannot
be called any thing but the profligate insincerity,
which uses the prejudice itself creates and fosters
against banks, as a means of personal advancement
-and then having gulled the people with unmeaning
words, it acts in direct contradiction of its profes-
sions. Yet do these words not sink into oblivion,
but rather live to produce mischief and fermenta-
Ion, which those who set it on foot may be little
able, eventually, to control. So far, therefore, as
in the case of Gov. Shannon-those whom he has
helped to delude now turn upon him to rend him-
it is simple poetical justice; for
"It is the sport to see the engineer
Hoist'd by his own petard."
But, as respects the great interests of the coun-
try, it is piteous, not less than injurious, to find in-
- stxtrtfttttOB, ItttteBr- adet-the marks of party di-.
sensions and party rancor; and thus, what should
be for the aliment and benefit of the whole coun-
try, presented to popular view as a one-sided in-
etrumewt of tyranny and oppression.
The course of events, however, is helping, we
think, to enlighten the public mind, on the sound-
ness of these Loco-foco doctrines about hard mo-
ney, and against credit; and when those who, un-
der a well-ordered banking system, have been ac-
customed to receive from $1 to $1 50 per bushel for
their wheat, and from 18 to 26 cents per pound for
their butter, find sales difficult for the first at 75
cents, and for the last at 13 1-2, they will ask
themselves, why this change ?--and, then, follow-
ing effects up to their causes, they will soon learn
to place a just value upon the reasoning which
proves to them that they are much richer and hap-

pier by receiving one dollar in coin, for that which
heretofore has brought them two dollars in paper
that answered all the purposes of coin.
The experiment is now working out its legiti-
mate fruits ; and we doubt not at all the issue of
the popular verdict upon it.

SOUND WHIG DOCTRINE, without a doubt, is to
be found in the following extract from the speech
made by Mr. HUNTER, on taking the Chair of the
House of Representatives:
"You will doubtless deem it your duty, gentle-
men, as the grand inquest of the nation, to inves-
tigate all matters of which the People ought to be
informed ; to retrench expenditures which are un-
necessary or unconstitutional; to maintain the
just relations between all the great interests of
the country ; and to preserve inviolate the Con-
stitution which you will be sworn to support;
whilst it will be mine to aid you in such labors with
all the means within my power."

parties indiscriminately, shall cease in twelve
months after such notification.

to give ample protection to our citizens engaged in

Mr. Prentiss gave notice of his intention, at the
earliest period, to introduce a bill to establish a
Board of Commissioners to bear and determine
claims agaia t the United Stat9g.
Mr. Hubbard also gave notice of his intention
to introduce several private bills, which had passed
the Senate last session, but had not been acted on
in the other House for want of time.
On motion, the Senate adjourned.
The House was called to order at noon, and the
journal of yesterday having oeen read, and the
pending question being on a resolution offered by
Mr. Wise, that the commissioned members from
New Jersey are not entitled to their seats, and Mr.
Barnard, of New York, having the floor upon that

[Cries of No, no! Barnard has the floor! or-
der !"]
Mr. Johnson said that it was a resolution ap-
prizing the Senate that the House was organized and
prepared to go to business.
Mr. Lewis Williams. I object. The House is
not yet organized; we have chosen no Clerk; and
the gentleman from New York is entitled to the

Mr. Craig said that it had been the universal
custom of the last Congress to indulge a gentle-
man in reading any paper he desired to offer, for
the information of the House.
The Chair. The offering of the resolution
being objected to, the question will be on its re-
ception ; it may be read for the information of the

out, of order, because the gentleman from Tennes-

floor to offer it, since the floor was already in pos-

The Chair. If the gentleman from New York
insists upon his right, he is entitled to the floor.
Mr. Barnard thereupon proceeded to address the
House in a speech of about two hours, insisting
upon the constitutional obligation of the House to
permit the New Jersey members to be sworn, and
replying to the argument heretofore made on the
other side by Mr. Pickens, and those made yester-
day by Mr. Dromgoole and Mr. Rhett.
The debate was continued by Mr. Rayner, of
North Carolina, who addressed the House at some
length on the same side.
Mr. R. having concluded-
Mr. Vanderpoel rose and said that this debate
had now been continued for two days pretty much
upon one side, and he thought gentlemen could
not complain of any want of opportunity to make
an exposition of their views. If he thought that
by protracting the debate one convert would be
made, he would be willing to sit there for a week;

but he was satisfied that every gentleman had
made up his mind, and that, if they spoke until
doomsday, every man would retain his opinion.
Under this conviction, he moved to lay the resolu-
tion on the tablt.
Mr. Charles Shepard appealed to Mr. Vander-
poel to withdraw the motion.
Two questions of order here arose : the first of
which involved no essential point, and fell through,
after a brief conversation, sustained by Messrs.
Wise, Vanderpoel, and W. C. Johnson.
After which, Mr. Vanderpoel insisting en his
motion, and a question arising whether it was a
debateable motion, and debate arising on that ques-
tion of order-
Mr. Wise inquired of the Speaker what would
be the effect of a decision to lay the resolution on
the table.
The Speaker stated that, inasmuch as the reso-
lution contained a negative proposition, he should
regard a decision to lay it upon the table as a de-
cision affirming the reverse of that proposition, and
as intending that the members claiming seats from
New Jersey should be sworn.
Whereupon, after some further explanations, Mr.
Vanderpoel, with this explanation of the Speaker's
view of the subject, withdrew his motion to lay Mr,
Wise's resolution upon the table.
Mr. Shepard, of North Carolina, addressed the
House at considerable length in explanation and
vindication of the course he had pursued in refer-
ence to the members elect from the State of New
The debate was further continued by Mr. Thomp-
son, of South Carolina, and Mr. Shepard, of North
Carolina, in speeches of considerable length.
Mr. Turney then moved that the credentials, pa-
pers, and every thing relating to the contested
election of New Jersey, be referred to the Com-
mittee of Elections.
Mr. Stanley, amidst much confusion and noise,
was understood to raise a question of order as to
the motion which had been made, whether it could
be entertained when no such committee was m ex-
istence to which it was proposed to refer the pa-
pers, &c.
Pending which question of order, the House, on
motion, adjourned till 12 o'clock to-morrow.

Loco-Focos-sneer at Gen. Harrison as a poor man.
It remains to be seen whether this will injure him
with the people. A letter from Washington to the
Philadelphia U. S. Gazette, says : It has been a
favorite topic with our opponents, to decry the
'Whigs as the rich, and the" oco-Focos as thepoor.
The rich agomnst the poor, has been the signal cry
to raise the poor against the rich. Now, the Whigs,
(the rich if you please) have given a proof of their
disregard of these artificial distinctions, of their con-
tempt of the prejudices attributed to them, by nomi-
nating a poor man for President. It is well known
that Gen. Harrison is, in a pecuniary condition, poor.
Yet this poor man has been taken up by those who
are called the rich and heartless aristocrats, and
will be supported at the polls by the ranks of the
wealthy, shoulder to shoulder, elbowing thei-r way
to the ballot box, through the crowd of office-hol-
ders and office-seekers, who, with the cry of the
rich against the poor," on their tongues, shrink
from the touch of poverty, as wholesome health
shrinks from the touch of a leper. The POOR MAN'S
PRESIDENT is the motto on the flag under which we
hope to fight down the panders of corruption, the
violators of law, and the foes of order.-[Baltimore
The people have now the opportunity of electing
a plain, honest farmer-a deserving old soldier-
to the highest office in their gift. After gloriously
fighting their battles, and filling various civil sta-
tions in which he could have amassed, perhaps,
millions by dishonor-he stands before his country-
men with a pure heart, clean hands and upright
conscience-poor in purse, it is true, but of spot-
less integrity. He asks at their hands nothing but
their confidence ; and can it, will it be withheld 1
Will the people suffer the charge of ingratitude to
be imputed to them 1 Will they reject the claims
of a man, who has devoted the prime of his life to
promote their interest and happiness, and let ob-
scurity and poverty be his only reward in the de-
cline of life 1 No-the impulse has been given,
and tl-e public voice will bear, as on the four winds
of Heaven, the name of William Henry Harrison,
from one extremity of the Union to the other.-

We are pleased to see, that even the rankest
of the Administration prints have nothing to say
against the nomination of Mr. Tyler as Vice Presi-
dent. The fact is, that if Colonel Johnson and Mr.
Tyler are the only candidates, who even of party
men, can hesitate. Mr. T. is an honorable, virtu-
ous, high-minded, intelligent, and dignified gentle-
man. He would make an excellent President of
the Senate.-[Alex. Gaz.]
Speaking of the nomination of HARRISON and
TYLER, the Wheeling Times says-" The pull will
be a long pull, a strong pull, and a pull altogether."
We have before had long pulls and strong pulls,
but never had a pull altogether. Let this be re-
membered. A pull altogether, and this tottering
Administration must come down.-[Balt. Chron.]

A rumor prevails that Mr. Calhoun does not re-
gard unfavorably the nomination of Gen Harrison.
It is also rumored that the feud between Mr. Cal-

the political chess-board, so as to have the game in
his own hands.-[Alexandria Gazette.]

The recently discovered fraud at Philadelphia
caused quite a panic here yesterday, respecting

TAMPA BAY, Nov. 28, 1839.
The sickness here has abated considerably
There has not been a death here for the last three
days, and only one or two new cases, and the wea-
ther begins to grow cool and agreeable; all this
tends to make me believe that we shall not have
much more sickness here this winter.
Since writing the above there have two deaths
occurred, one of whom was Major Frazer's nephew,
and the other a soldier, I believe he was the last
case in the Hospital.
[From the St. Augutstine Herald, Dec. 5th.]
The negro Damon, mentioned in our last as
taken off by the Indians returned to this city on
Sunday morning. He states that as he was riding

through Long Swamp at a brisk pace, he came
suddenly upon Mr. Weadman's wagon, and think-
ing all was not right was turning his horse when
two Indians sprung into the road, seized his bridle,
and forced him off. They took him to the wagon,
where one of them struck the boy Bartolo, with
the butt end ef his rifle until he appeared dead.
The volunteers were now heard coming, ,when the
Indians gathered up the plunder and retired with
the horses about one hundred yards into the swamp,
where they remained, until the volunteers had gone
off with the bodies. They then loaded the horses
and went north about a mile, thence west, to a
point where they had some dried meat, and turning
south came again upon the Picolatta road, and
crossed it. They soon struck upon another swamp
where they stopped, tore up the letters and made
pouches and straps of the mail bag. Resuming
their journey south about 9 miles from this, they
came to the Tomoka road where two other Indians
joined them, and continued on to Tomnoka river,
upon an Island in which they had tarpaulin tents,
two squaws and a child,
On Saturday there was rain. One of the In-
dians went south to bring in their friends, intending
to return before long. Soon after another Indian
fell asleep and Damon on pretence of getting
aorrns strayed off from their fire, swam the river
and escaped, Tomvuka river is about 50 miles
south of this,

U. S. CIRCUIT COURT-Yesterday.
Judges Thompson and Betts presiding.
Samuel R. Weeod, for perjury, which has occupied
the Court for several days past, terminated yester-
day, without being passed on by the jury.
The prisoner was indicted for perjury, alleged to
have been committed by swearing falsely in rela-
tion to the cost of goods which he imported last
April in the ship Sheridan. The proofs given in
support of the indictment were entirely documenta-
ry, consisting in part of letters, which the prisoner
had written to his father, in which he desired him
to invoice whatever goods he sent him at two thirds
of their real cost. The account books of the pri-
soner's father were also adduced, and the entries in
them corroborated the evidence contained in the
letters. There were also other written documents
produced in evidence, which, taken in connection
with all the circumstances which transpired, made
out a strong inferential case of perjury against the
Counsel for the prisoner quoted the law, in rela-
tion to prosecutions for perjury, which provides that
in order to convict persons of perjury, there must
be two viva wvce witnesses, or one witnesses cor-
roborated by circumstantial evidence. And as in
the present case the public prosecutor could not
produce a viva voce witness to prove perjury against
the prisoner, his counsel contended that the case
must fall to the ground.
The District Attorney denied his position, and con-
tended that the testimony of both of the viva voce
witnesses might be supplied by circumstantial evi-
Judge Thompson coincided in the opinion of
counsel for the prisoner, and said he considered it
necessary that there should be at least one viva
voce witness to prove the falsity of the oath. This
he considered to be a settled technical rule of law,
the application of which no doubt might be ex-
tremely inconvenient, and appear unreasonable in
particular cases, but it was not for the Court to
legislate upon the subject. It was his duty only
to inquire what the law actually was, and so ap-
ply it.
Judge Betts differed in opinion with Judge
As the Court thus differed in opinion, the case
must go up to the Supreme Court, and until they
have adjudicated on it, the matter must rest as
it is.
DEATH FROM A LocOMOTIVEE.-Yesterday after-
noon, about half past 4 o'clock, as an extra loco-
motive was running from Jersey City to New
Brunswick, to take her station there in case of ac-
cident occurring to the regular engine, the engi-
neer, when two miles beyond Elizabethtown, per-
ceived a man walking on the track. As the grade
was descending, he immediately rang his bell, not
doubting that, as happens continually, the man
would, on the approach of the locomotive, step
aside. When, however, it was perceived that the
pedestrian gave no indications of stepping aside,
the motion of the engine was constantly reversed,
and the brake was applied to the wheels, but it
was too late. The hapless man, who, it seems,
was totally deaf, was struck down. The engine
and tender passed over him, breaking one arm, his
back, and nearly severing one leg from the body,
He lingered, insensible and without apparent suf-
fering, till half past 7, when he expired. A Coro-
ner's jury was summoned, but adjourned till this
morning, to have the evidence of the Engineer.
The name of the deceased was Smith Britton, a
watch-maker of Rahway, who had been to Eliza-
bethtown, and was returning on foot to his home.
He had, it seems, beerrfrequently cautioned, owing
to his deafness, to avoid the railroad; but relying
upon his knowledge of the hours at which the reg-
ular trains pass, he ventured on the road, and-by
an extra running at an unusual hour, perished.
This seems to us to be making very nice calcula-
tions on life.
ter Democrat of Monday states, that on the pre-
ceding Thursday night, some unknown ruffian
broke into the house of th Rev. Barnard O'Reil-
ly, Catholic clergyman of that place, and proceed-
ing to his bed-room, struck him, in his sleep, vio-
lent blows on the head, apparently with a heavy
bludgeon. He was found in his bed insensible,
and bleeding profusely ; bit it is believed his in-

juries are not dangerous.
The only motive conjectured is robbery, as Mr.
O'Reilly was believed to hare received some funds
for a Catholic College.

his book of travels, gives as the' following method
of courtship 'among the Pawnees :
When the lover wishes to break the ice, he
comes to her father's tent uninvited, and sits on a
corner of the mat for a considerable length of time,
and then goes away without speaking. This is the
preliminary step, answering, perhaps, to the first
grasp of the hand the first mutual glance of under-
standing. After a few days the young man returns,
wearing his buffalo robe with the hair outward, and
again sits down silent in the corner of his tent; this
is a proposal, a regular 'popping of the question.'
If the father is determined to reject him, nothing is
placed for him to sit on, and no meat is offered him ;
but if he approves of the match, these rights of
hospitality are observed. Feasts are then given
by the respective parties in order to obtain the con-
sent of their relatives. If both parties terminate
favorably in this respect, the young man presents
himself once more before the bride at the door of
the tent, and then turns round and walks slowly off
towards his, she rises and follows him-the mar-
riage is then complete; (if she remains sitting, it
is a sign that her family declines the match.) All
this iq done without a word passing between the
bride an4 her husband that i to be, u3t the most
e.traordjnary part of the affair is, that having m.r-
ried an elder sister, he has a right to all the younger
ones as they successively attain the age of puber-
ty. The author adds, I have seen several chiefs
who have in this manner married a whole family ;
the eldest wife being the greatest drudge, and the
youngest being generally the favorite Sultana,
and consequently doing the least work."
ANCIENT Cus'rTOMs.-A writer, early in the 17th
century, in giving an account of the manners and
customs of the Danes, says-"When bride and
bridegroom marry, both run to a goal, where a bun-
dle of straw has' been set up. Whichever arrives
first, obtains thie command at home ; the man some-
times becomes the wife, the woman the husband.

vacuity of the soul, and -was discontented with
every thing in this lower world. Dr. Schlegel, in
his wrath against the French metropolis, where
such an association could e.xist, calls it a suffocat-
ing, boiling caldron, in which, as the stew of Mac-
beth's witches, they simmer, with a modicum of
virtue, all kinds of passions, vices, and crimes."
Amongst the numerous improvements proposed
in the Daguerr6otype is the following, by M. Jo-
bard, of Brussels, for taking portraits a l'hilio-
graphe :--" Paint in dead white the face of the pa-
tient ; powder his hair, and fix the back of his
head between two or three planks solidly attached
to the back of an arm-chair, and wound up with
sctews The color of the flesh, not reflecting
sufficiently the rays of light, would require a pow-
erful sun, whereas a whitened face will be repro-
duced as well as plaster figures by diffused light."

WHITTLI oG.-Marryat, in his diary, gives the
Yankees the character of being famous whittlers.
To see that art practised in perfection, he should
have visited Arkansas, where we out-whittle the
Yankees all to pieces,-and sometimes, for want
of softer material, whittle each other. A year or
two ago, during a trial which was going on in one
of our meeting houses, a lawyer, one of our most
experienced whittlers, after proving the ruin of the
bench on which he had been sitting, was proceed-
ing to demolish the table, when he was called to
order by the Judge, and requested to desist ; but
he demurred, as the table was his own, having been
lent for the occasion ; after this explanation he was
allowed to proceed with his argument and his whit-
tling, and by the time he had got through with the
one, he was out of material for the other.-[Ar-
kansas State Gazette.]

A letter from Cadiz details the following singular
murder as having been committed in that city, on the
18th October :
Two women met on the Plaza de San Juan de
Dois ; the one hated the other with an implacable
hatred, and after some threats she drew from un-
der her mantilla a long knife ; the other fled and
sought refuge in the church. The mass was just
begun, and the wretched woman flying up the
naive, threw herself at the feet of the priest who
was officiating. Notwithstanding the sanctity of
the spot, her enemy pursued her into this holy asy-
lum and poignarded her in the presence of the as-
sembled congregation. It may be easily imagined
with what horror the spectators of this shocking
sacrilege were struck, which proves to what a pitch
of madness revenge can be carried in the heart of a
Spaniard. The service was immediately stopped,
and the door closed. The murderer was arrested,
and will no doubt soon be brought to trial.

ral treasures of Missouri are but partially disclosed
That State has long been known to possess im-
mense deposits of lead ; recent examinations go
to show that copper, iron and coal also abound.
The St Louis Republican gives some account of
Dr. King's late survey of the Valley of the Osage
river, from the mouth of that stream up to the
American Fur Company's establishment beyond
the State line. Lead, copper and iron ores were
found on both sides of the river, similar to those
abounding in the southern parts of the State. From
Oceola on the south side of the river, and from
Warsaw on the north, as far as the State line, a
coal region extends. The coal is represented as
being very abundant, and in many places so near the
water's edge that mines might be opened and the
coal thrown into a boat on t&e river. The veins of
iron and of coal are in many places contiguous. It
is stated that in the coal district salt springs abound
-but none are discovered where the primitive for-
mation of limestone exists.
A geological survey of the whole State, it is
thought, would discover vast mineral resources in
other parts of Missouri. These are the treasures
which, to an industrious people, are more valuable
than mines of gold or silver. They furnish means
of employment to the active faculties of man;
they require labor to be made available; and the
uses to which they are applied presupposes a
flourishing state of the practical arts.-[Baltimore

Now York, December 20, 1839.
To the Editor of the Evening Post:
My attention has been called to the two following
paragraphs in a morning paper of this city :
We presume that it is pretty generally known that
the present Collector of the port of New 'ork, like his
predecessor Mr. Swartwout, and his late colleague, Mr.
Price, is a defaulter to the General Government, and
such will ever be the case as long as such offices are
filled by men who are responsible to those cliques
only, and not to the people at large."
"It is reported that the United States Attorney of
this district has been instructed by the Secretary of
the Treasury to sue the COLLECTOR for this amount.
and this is precisely what the people would naturally
expect from such a man as Mr. Woodbury."

As to the first, I pronounce it to be unqualifiedly
false, so far as it relates to me ; and as to the second
paragraph, the annexed correspondence will speak
for itself. J. HOYT, Collector.

Both were done very ingeniously, and without mu-

that the re-printed word is blacker and more pro-

ROBBERY AND FIRE.-The cabin of the ship
Serene, now loading at the Point for the Pacific,
was entered by two rogues on Tuesday night for
the purpose of plunder. Some time afterwards,
when the mate came on board, he found the cabin
in flames, and immediately gave the alarm, which
was so promptly responded to by the firemen with
their engines, that the fire was soon extinguished-
the damage being confined to the cabin. One of
the rogues was arrested yesterday morning, and
the police officers are on the track of the other.-

FIRE -A fire was discovered yesterday morning
at about four o'clock, in the building in the rear of
Nos. 28 and 30 Cherry street. The house has four
stories, and is of brick, and the fire originated in
the third story and extended to the fourth. It was
owned by J. Vanderpool, Jr., and insured. His
loss will probably not exceed $500. The third
story was occupied by Mr. Hynard, carpenter, and
J. Atherden, turner, neither insured-the loss of
the former is about $500, of the latter $250. The
fourth story was occupied by L. Kellogg, chair
maker, whose loss will probably amount to $450,
and by John & James Montgomery, brush-makers,
who will probably lose $1200. The whole amount
of loss is computed at $2900. No damage was
done to any of the mahogany or other lumber on
hand. The fire was probably the work of design,
the hoisting rope was found cut. Had there been
a hook and ladder truck on the ground, the da-
mage would have been very trifling; but there
was none, and therefore no means to carry the
water up to that part of the building which was on

among the sand hills round and in the vicinity of
Fish Lake. It is reported to be about four feet
high, and covered with a light coat of chesnut-col-
ored hair. It runs with great velocity, and when
p-irsued, as has often been the case, it sets up the
most frightful and hideous yells, and seems to
make efforts at speaking. It has been seen during
the summer months running along the lake shore,
apparently in search of fish and frogs, and appears
to be very fond of the water, for it will plunge into
Fish Lake and swim with great velocity, all the
time whining most piteously.
How this creature has come here, or what its
history may be, we leave to conjecture ; but may
it not be probable that it may have strayed away
from some emigrating party, when encatnped for
the night, and wandered off in the woods, where it
has grown up an associate with the animals of the
forest ? We think this may he the case. If so,
what must have been the anguish of its parents
and friends on learning that they were compelled to
pursue their journey without their tender care ? It
is also supposed that it may have been stolen by
th- Indians, and left in the forest to perish ; but we
can hardly believe such to be the case.
It would be nothing but an act of humanity on
the part of our young men to turn out and help to
capture it.-[Gaz.]
It commernced snowing slightly at Baltimore
early on Wednesday morning, and continued at in-
tervals throughout the day; the snow however
melting as soon as it fell.
THE SNOW.-A train on the Long Island Rail-
road, which left Hicksville for New York on Mon-
day morning, did not arrive at Jamaicoa ( iatcnr
miles) until Wednesday. Passengers say the drifts
are six and seven feet deep. The Stonington
Railroad was cleared with great labor. Three lo-
comotives were put together to drag the train.
The passengers who left here Saturday, P. M., did
not arrive at Boston until Tuesday at 1 o'clock.
The cars from Philadelphia, with the eastern
mail, did not reach Baltimore on Monday afternoon
until near six o'clock. It seems from the Patriot,
that the delay was occasioned, in the first instance
by the breaking of the bolt which connected the
locomotive to the cars; and when this was repaii-
ed, it was found that the water was exhausted in
the engine. A further delay was occasioned by
the very low water at the mouth of the Susque-
hanna, caused by the prevalence, for a few days, of
a strong northwest wind. Owing to these circum-

stances the great eastern mails for the West and
South could not be forwarded on Monday.-[Phi-
ladelphia Gazette.]
neighborhood of Sycamore and Elm streets, was
greatly excited yesterday morning, by the appear-
ance of the mutilated remains of a newly born female
child, which was brought to the house of Mr. Bon-
ner, by his mastiff. Immediately after discovering
the body, inquiry was instituted where it was found.
By traces on the ground, aided by the sagacity of
the dog, the persons in search were led to an un-
used well on a vacant lot in the neighborhood, the
water of which was within a foot of the surface.
The bloody appearance of the well, and the mani-
festations of the mastiff, with other symptoms, con-
firmed, the opinion that here the body had been left
by its inhuman mother.-[Buffalo Com.]
EARTHQUAKEs.-Thealmost usual annual earth-
quakes in Perthshire, recently visited the town of
Crief and Strathearn. Fortunately they were not
so violent as to do mischief. On the 29th of Au-
gust, Irkutsk, Siberia, suffered severely from a
phenomenon of the same kind. Some houses were
thrown down and several lives lost.-[English pa-
An Arkansas paper wishes to know what the

F'IE.--We regret to learn that the grist mill
and clover mill of Mr. Samuel Low, of Harbor-
creek, were destroyed by fire on the morning of
Thursday last-evidently caused by spontaneous
combustion of a heap of chaff from the clover seed.
The clover mill was the only one in this region of
the country, and is therefore a great loss to the
community. A quantity of grain and cloverseed
were also consumed. The whole loss is estimated
at over $2,000. No insurance.-[Erie Gaz.]

R. HULL has improved his mode of curing hernia
so far within the last few months as to be willing to
warrant entire success in all children's cases,
and in a majority of adults. Patients calling at
Dr. Hull's are assured that they will meet a surgical
gentleman of good rank in his profession, and espe-
cially that no other business but the cure of Ruptures
is allowed in his establishment.
For the correctness of these statements. Dr. Hull
refers to any regular member of the profession in the
city. d12
FOR CONSUMPTION.-Dr. Taylor: I feel une
quivocal pleasure in expressing my opinion of
your Balsam of Liverwort-I have used it in upwards
of sixty cases of real consumption, and have invaria-
bly seen it yield immediate relief. I cheerfully recom-
mend it to all persons who are consumptive ; and for
chronic coughs, pain in the breast, raisingof5blood, &c.,
I believe your vegetable medicine to be a certain and
speedy cure-I am glad to find it used by most of our
medical men, who prize it highly. Yours, with esteem,
Member of the College of Surgeons. Edinburgh.
