The increase in the quantity of l'oni I made sugar, has occasioned a considerable reduction in that of Colonial importation, c.ii.seqiietitly in Hie receipt of the treasury. 1 he government anxious to supply the deficit is now seriously think, ing of a lox on that article. The discus siuiis in the Council bore principally on thai point. Most of the members opposed it ma-much as they did not conceive thu new industry in a sufficiently flourishing condition to support the tax, M. Mathieu df; Uombaslc. a very competent judge in those matters stated thai about one. third of the beet sugar refiners were doing well ; that i.nother third us vet mcrelv covered ctr expenses', and that the last third. having been rt cent ly established were sti.l losers, und living in the hope of doing bet ter.

I lu same Hung has already occurred in respect to llie iron quotum, it may enrisc quently be expected that thu government w ill fail in itsaltcmpt lo lax the beel sugar. Then remains the Colonial difficulty. The French West Indies exist only by the sugar they sell to the mother country, and they are rather shackled than prolccled by the present inniort duty of .J'j francs 50 cen times per 100 kilograms. That duty, which lurmerly operated as a protection has had of late quite n contrary rffect. for it bos enabled the beet root su"ar, freed as it is Irom that duty, to devclope itself freely and without any obstacle, and to enter with advantage- into competition with the enuu sugar, in me course ol last year, the great cnnsilintition of the former oeen. stoned a fall off of 15 miliums of frnncs in the duties ami l ie Colonial nriipln In 1B3G, the diminution will nrobabk- SO millions.

Albany Adv. From the Vermont Courier. As the time i i nearly arrived when Maple groves are laxed for their quota of our lux urics, will give, fur the benefit of those concerncu, a tow tacts, wiucli experience has taught me relative to making MAPLi: SUGAR. In the firt,l place, it is obvious. I he buck els' and spouts should bu perfectly clean unit sweet. 1 lien ucinrc thu sap is put into tho kettles n little lime should he put in it. in order to iiutrnlizo llm vegetable acid which it contains. A lea spoon full would he sufficient lor two barrels of sap. It sliou'il bestirred tip and then allowed to settle The object is lo preyent the acid l(oui dccompnoiiig tiiu iron which gives the sugar n black appearance. Tho kettles should also he washed while warm with thin whitewash and bo allowed lo dry before pul ling in the sap. Then ihesapshould be put in and kept boiling till it is sugared it is galled. If several kettles are used a-i it boils down, the syrup should bo dipped in to one kettle in siiffucient quantity to make from 20 to 30 lbs. This quantity can ba sugared off in about two hums, in a cum mon cauldron, after it became a pretty strong syrrup, tay, ns strong ns it is usual ly made beloru dipping out to settle. The lime makes o thin coal over the surface of the iron und helps to prevent a decomposi tion ofit. Sugar mnde in this way is whi ter than anyN. O. Sugar. The black col oring matter is all derived from th buck els, kettles, tubs. &c., as it is proved from the fact that syrrup or niolascs made from maple sap by "freezing is wholly colorless. The principle object in making nice sugar should be to prevent its be:r-- i ,i..ed with coloring matter. I have m.ido many expert merits and the above is the result.

Tho same suit ol rusty black which, for the last twenty years, has on Sundays encased Ins six feet two inches of skin and bone.1, slill hangs upon him. The long, thin face, the sinootlilv-coinbed hair, the upturned eye, the subdued look, the meek expression, and withal the proud humility ofnnnnor nfObed Parsons, while in the discharge of his tin ties as leader of the choir, aro now before me. I can see linn standing with Ins huge p-alin-bnok in Ins left hind, held at the ex tremity of hi-! out-streiehed arm, while hi? right, keeping the lime, moyes up nml down with the regularity nf the walking, beam of a steamboat every lime it sink--, touching the book. and. while it tests for a moment upon the fingers, rising and filling with a short, uneasy motion :' I can see the peculiar and ridiculou-ly-tcnder expres sion which hi-features fur a moment n4sitnii' as Ins eye glances lo the pew, at the light of llio pulpit, occupied by Deacon II , and his pretty daughter Grace ; and never shall I furget the mingled look of sadness anil despair which overspread his cuutile nance the last Sunday he appeared in church, while, partly turning Inward her. he sang the following lines oT the psalm which had been selected fnr the conclusion of the services nfihe day : 'My hem I, like I he grns3 that feels the bl.nt Of some infectious wind, Doci I uiiii.-li so wilh -ricf, that sejreo My needful food I find : By reason of my sad estate, I spend my bre.ilh in groans ; Jly llesh U worn away, my skin .Scarce hides ray stalling hones.' The two last lines, in the spirit which he appeared involuntarily lo apply them, were but too true. His flesh torts worn away In such a degree Ihal his 'skin could scarcely hide his i-tarting bones.' Poor Obcd ! iliine was indeed on unlnppy fate.

Obed Parsons was one of tlme charac ters marked from the cradle for a particu lar vocation. Born m Italy, he would have been a Ravn"liu. but bum as ho was in the eastern part of Connecticut, he lived ami died a Yankee singing master. Must truly could Obed Parsons have been said to have been a psalm singer by nature. The pro pensity (as I bolievu crarnulogists call il) was deve'opci in him during Ins tnot ten der vears. not where thev rind it. on Hie head, but through ' is mouth. Ilia infant enca wero metre, and while he yet lay up on his mother's breaot. Instead of crowing, jovful sound by which babes first manifest their sense of enjoyment, the notes of ' Old Hundred' drooled from Ills hps. The gojd old Presbyterian psalms with winch ln venerable grand-mother every evening sang him to sleep, in the morning were recog nised in Ins first waking cries. As he grew in years, ho grew in musical power. (In his' first attendance at meeting, tho music of tho choir affected him as sensibly as it did the Kttrick Shepherd's dog. and like that susceptible animal, he instinctively raised Ins voice, and added Insinlanl notes to the song of prniso ihat went forth thro out the congregation. He soon nfler be- camo conspicuous in the neigh uorlioou lur Ins skill in psalmody; nnd before he was thirteen venra old, he taught a singing- schoul in his native town. His life, for the next ensuing fifteen years, would preccrft little of interest to the reader, and I shall thereforo tuko the liberty of passing ever it with tho single remark, that it was char acterised by the usual spiri' of change and enterprise to ho fuund in thnse migratory sons of New-Kiiglund, whu. from Hie earli est tunes, havo devoted themselves to the duties of public instruction. After making

Byron extend the remark to Viimen. and observes thai there is also ' a ' ido" in their affairs, nnd I doubt not that he was correct in the ob-servation. Fur my mvn part, I have observed, thai in tiiojiveaof both sexes, there are periods which seem mirked by events that exorcise p. contrullinn influence over Iheir niter ox istciiee.

Helm t been closed to them. This, in an especial manner. wa the case in the instance, of my friend Obed The singing pcIio jI in the city was an epoch in his life, from which ho could datu a changed existence. Let me here remark, that it very frequently happens, thai inci dents which at first appear so trivial end insignificant at hardly to ba worth our at tention, arc subsequently found to have been the moving causes of the greatest changes in our elnracler atid circumstan ce.'. The life nfObed Parsuns most happr ly illustrates tins cbiervatmn. Among the pupils in hi? singi.ig school was a cherub looking little creature, of the name of Grace, the only daughter of one of the principal deacum ofthe street church. Although possessing n person of almost perfect lovelines.i. her only attraction in the eyes of Obcd was her voice. Il was.indoed, ofthe most clear, soft, and bird-like tone; and from tho moment it first struck the eir of her teacher, he was so enamoured of Us swectnc:S, that ho at once determined In employ much of his tune in its cultna Hon. lie did so. and the hours he devoted to the instruction of Graud, soon became the happiest of his existence. His delight seemed for some timu to be without earthly alloy, and In coniist entirely in trjiuing to the more perfect praise of Ins Maker, a vjicoofsuch peculiar melody. It was a rare nnd singular contrast Ilia! of the misttr and scholar, while engaged in ilieir exercises : he bending Ins long.thin, bony form, and gathering up Ins rambling limb', to get his lace down to hers she wilh her p-.lite figure, and compact and delicate proportions, standing by Ins side, they looked like a willow switch and a vine forming ti vegetable alliance. After tho lapse of a few months.a change was ob'crtnd to have taken place in the cl'iimeier of Obed. The self-complacency whicn had heretofore been observable in his every look and motion, particularly while engaged in the performance of his official services, appeared to have given place to an air of frelfulness and un'uappi ness. He would occasionally sing out of tune, and by leading the congregation astray, cause the must fearful dicurd in the exercises. On one occasion, 1 particularly remember, he named ' Kingsbridgo' as the tune wo should sing, and just as the con gregation had commenced industriously nu that, he himself struck up on ' Denu ark.' At length this wandering from his duties became so frequent his manner 6n absent and flighty, and his mistakes so ludicrous, and occasionally so annoying 'hat it was found necessary to suspend him from office. Ho was soon afterward taken ill. nnd nt lnt was confined to his bed, from which he never arose. Itwasnt this period, that my intimacy with Obed Parsons commenced. From Ins peculiar appearance and manner, together with the singular traits of character I had ubsorve.1 in htm, he had early become an object of interest to me. On learning Ins serious indisposition, I called to sec him ; and finding that I could hi of service to Iiiiii. continued my visits. They ended on ly with his life; nnd I have the satlslaction of knowing thai I contributed to soften the last moments of one of the most singular and eccentric, and vet the most harmlesspf human beings. A lev; days before ha died, he confirmed my suspicions, and acknowl edged that his unfortunate and unrecip rocated attachment had been the cou-e of his unliappincss, nnd finally of his death. Ho informed me that I would find the pro gress of his feelings detailed in the latter part of a journal he had kept, and which he de-urcd to leave in my lianus. Tins journal, which I examined nfier his lent Ii, I found to he voluminous, and for the most part filled with memoranda relating to Ins early life. From that portion of it which was written during his residence in New York, nnd more particularly from those entries which have reference tu Ins feelings for Grace , I shall, as they better illus tratc some of tho peculiar features of hi character, make a few extracts. His nmo Hons, it will bo seen, frequently find vent in sacred verse, slightly amended, nt times, in suit his peculiar condition. His psalm book was his vnile-mcrum. and all his ideas of heaven-born inspiration, in the matter o pnelry. wure gathered from its pages. The first passage which I shall present from tuy friend s journal, runs as follows .- 'October 21, 10--. At length my school is established, nud 1 nm, alter a long and weary wardering, fixed, ns I hope, fur life It is a umol comfortable feeling that per inaueul settlement produces. 1 was fearful that there would never be an end of my journeying, nnd that, 'l.ike Noah's weary dove, soar'd llie e.iril, ainiinJ, Dal nol a leslin; pl-ire alxni 'I he chceilcfs ualeis lound,' I should travel over the wide world, and never find tho rcsl that is granted unto oth ers. 'October 30, IB . Mcthinks I never heard so sweet n voice as that possessed by Grace , It u n ploasiiro for tne lo leach her lo sing. It cannot he but that to God nil sounds of worslnn arc erinal ; hut it nlwnvs feemed to me, tint 'he voice of childhood raised in prayer, and that the song of praise breathed in the sweet, musi' cal voice and soft.accents of a pure and lovely girl like Grace, must be more accep table lo him than that which is poured forth in the rough and coarse voices of men. ' '.Yovcmber II. 18 I fear my mind is dwelling too much on Grace . And yet it is but natural. I hay; always loved to contemplate tin beautiful, whether of tho animate- or inanimate of Nature's works; ami of a surety. Grace is must lovely. Her name, even, is melody. What saith the Psalmist.? firncu ! 'lis a clurnimj sound ! Harmonious in tho eir, lle.ucn iviili the echo sh ill resound, And nil the earth shall hear.' 'Decembers, 10 . I love her ! Yes! (talis) tho feeling which has made rnt so uncomfortable nf lata t nnd evening, while I wns teaching her the difficult parts of 'Heading,' she smiled so sweetly and kindly upon mo, that I could almost believe that I, even I, homely and lowly ns I nm. might find favor in her sight. O that it miy ba so ! Could she but look into my heart, and see the purity, the intensity, the almost idolatry of my affection, she iniglit forgot my nwkward m inner, my unsightly figure, and my ur.gnceful gait. But this cannot be, and yot I will hope ; Mv soul, wait lliou with pitlcnce For Graec, and Grace nlnne ; On her ilcpeni.'elh all my hopes. And expectation.' Deccm'w 27, 13. I think people be gin to observe trie state of my leelings to ward Grace. It is quite likely ; fur I can not nlways control myelf. And why should I care if all the world know that my affec tions flow oul unlo one who is all loveli ness .' I do not : 'My tongue chill he qjiek Her praises In indite, As is llie p'n of any scribe That u.-eth fast lo write.' Let it pass from mouth to mouth, from tea table to lea table, that Obd Parsons In hid llie folly, if lliey will call it so, to love one far above him, 'in every goo.! and per fect gift.' But as for thee, dear Grace, 'O keep me in thy perfect way, And bid leinplnlion (lee J And let me never, neiei- stray, Krom luppiness and thee.' 'Janwtrt 25, 13 . Tho people laugh at me, nnd ilu youth of our congregation, on whom God has showered blessings of every kind beauty, wealth, and all the comforts of life think it a matter of 6port and laughter that one ns poor, lowly, nnd noblest as 1 am, should posses tho same feelings, tho s tuie tenderness, and suscepti bility, a themselves, i ney jeer nl me, and tell all manner of lies, to mike me ap pear ridiculous. I am n subject of mirth and merriment with them, and not unfre- quently nn object ofscorn and contemptuous treatment. OHeii, too, 'Tors iok by all nm I, As dead and out of min 1 ; And like a shaiieied tp'sel lie, Whose parts can ne'er be joined.' I am sorely tried, and sometimes, I think overmuch. My life, I hope, has not been a sinful one.nnr my thoughts such as should call down such a punishment as tins : '() I. or. I !

I cannot bear the sight of my fellow creatures. I do not like lo go to oliurclt tiny inure, and my duties as leader of the choir, once my pride nnd delight, have become hateful to me : 'I'm like a pelican become, 'I'll it ibes in drscits mourn, Or liko nn uwl siis all day, On liinen tree loilorn ; In wavcliings or iuiestless moan, The night by me is spent.

The Most lTEt.r.iOET Citu.n that ever was seen hvry man s own child., Our readers will remember that some limi ago a Mrs. Hunt adver tised her riin-i-wiiy husband, with a request that F.ditors throughout the world" wuuld do justice to her ease. Forthwith they opened upon the delinquent like n pack ot hounds in full cry, nml epithet followed epithet u,i lo the twenty firstor second r d'ti in of the original anathema ofthe N.Y. Courier. Toe Northan Banner, republish ing the whole 1st of Editorial curses on Mr. Hunt, for Ins ttngallant conduct, observes "we Avion" something about this business. Mr. Hunt, it is true, left home under Ihe following circumstances; he had been mar ried a few month, lived wilh his better half until the subject of "ways and means" compelled him to "make a shift;" he did so and returned after a few weeks absence to the embraces ofa"'tender-hearted" wife, and fur aught we know is enjoying all the blessings of double felicity. In justice to Mr Hunt, therefore, we publish this note; and send it on after the other, in hope that in turning some short corner it may ove tjk' and stop itscouise.1' lu compliance ihereiurc with the request ofthe B inner, we give it a further shove ahead, hoping tint Mr. Hunt will in future su conduct himself that Airs. Laura Hunt will find it unncci'ssary ever ngain lo advertise for the restoration of her stray dear. TuNNcr. kndeii Tilt: Hudson River, The bill to incorporate the Albany Tunnel Company has become.a law. i he bill pro vides that Hie Tunnel, fur a distance of 300 .-et from J ml east of the pier, shall be twelve feet below the lowest low water mark, os defined by the U. S. survoy ; and that the crown of tho arch shall be eighteen inches below Hie bad of the river. Il will of course pass by a gradual elevat ion, from the place of the greatest depth, to the shore at either termination. The clear innci width of tho Tunnoll will bo about 21 feet, and the height 12 feet. The site is of course not yet decided ; but the gen eral impression seems to be that its entrance, into Alarkcl-street will bo through Maiden lane, which, having been recently widened, is admirably adapted to the purpose. The directors named hi the bill arc Joel B Nott, Stephen Van Rensselaer, jr.. James Stevenson, James Vanderpoel and John Townsend.
