FRIDAY M O Ft N I N G, OCTOBER 11. From the Albany Argus, of Tuesday, Ocl. 8. Wo discharge a melancholy oflico in an nouncing tho death of another of our most respected and valuablo citizens. Judge JESSE RUEL expired at Danbury, Ct.. nt 3 o'clock on Sunday afternoon, in tho 63d year of his age. In consonance with tho general torrow, and as a tribute to tho character of tho first proprietor of this journal, our columns appear in tho habilia ments of mourning. Having accepted invitations to deliver anniversary nddrcfcscs before the Horticul tural and Agricultural Socicticsof Norwich and New Haven, Conn., on the 25lh and 27th ultf., he left homo about n fortnight eince, with that view. At Donbury, ho was Boized on Sunday een'night with bilious cholic, of which he was relieved in the course ol the iwnnly.four hours ; but bilious fever supervened, and he sank under it after on illness of more than a week receiving, during tho time, every attention, and unre mitted medical attendance, from the bands of strangers. It was not until Friday last, however, soon after his son had left him on his return to Albany to request the attendance of his family physician, that the disorder assumed an alarming aspect. He was accompanied on his journey by his only daughter, of whom he took on affecting and final leave, in the full possession of his mental faculties, a few moments before he calmly breathed his last. Intelligence was brought yestcrdoy morn ing by express, announcing the expected fatal termination of his illness. It was a melancholy surprise to his anxious family on reaching tho 6team boat wharf in tho afternoon, on their route to his place of illness, to be among the first to learn that his remains had been brought up by the Columbus, the day boat from New York, which arrived before the departure of the afternoon boat. Tho body had been bro't from Danbury to Poughkcepsie, and thence to this city. For i he lost thirty years, Judge Buel has occupied a wide spaco in the political and agricultural world. In If! 13, he re moved to this city from Ulstci county, and established the Albany Argus. In the following year, he was appointed Printer J to the State, and discharged the duties of that station, and of the editorship of the paper, until 1821, when ho retired to the farm in the suburbs of the city, Eince so widely ond favorably known ostho 'Albany Nursery.1 After Ins retirement from his editorial labors, ho represented the city for successive years in tho popular branch of the legislature, und at the period of his death was a Regent of the University. His last appearance in political lite, was as the gubernatoriol candidate of the opponents of the national administration in 1030. But it is as an Agriculturist, in tho great and broad sense of the word, pracii. cally and scientifically, that he has built his fame as a public benefactor. As such, he was known throughout this continent and in tho old world ; ondno man has con tributed more as a writer and in practical life, to elevate, inform and improve the Agriculture of his age. Nearly six years ago, as an auxiliary in his plan fur the dif fusion of knowledge on this subject, Judge B. established "The Cultivator," a monthly publication, of tho highest value, and of great ond varied information, ond which has aitninod a vast circulation thrn'oul the American continent. His labors however were not confined to his monthly publico, f ion, onple as were its pages. His pen was in constant requisition upon nearly every subject connected with the culiivou tion cf the soil, and his correspondence, throughout the Union, and obroad, wos extensive. In exumple, not less than in precept, ho may be said to have conferred blessings upon the times in which he lived blessings that will continue to fructify, nnd lipen into fruit, long nfter his body shall have mingled with his favorite earth. A6 a neighbor and a citizen. and in all the relations of domestic life ho was with, out reproach. He was esteemed not less for his integrity than his intelligence and worth for tha unaffected affability ond simplicity of manner in his intercourse with his fellow men. Ho may bo said to havo lived for utility; and to have died in the prosecution of his favorite employment. II is denth is a public bereavement, which nil will mourn, as irreparable. MARYLAND ELECTION. From tho Baltimore Chronicle wo learn that the congressional election has resulted in the choico of tho following candidates: 1st District, John Dennis, (W.) , 2d do P. F. Thomas, iL. F ) 3d 4i b 5th 6th 7th do do j do do do J. T. Worthingtnn,(L. F.) j. Carroll, i. ' S. Ilillon, (L. V.) Win. Cost Jnhnsnn (W.) Francis J'honiot., (L. r,) David Jenifer, (W) As far as beard from, 44 locofocos and 22 whirrs had been elected to tho house, of I delegates; 42 mnkes a majority of tho house, and that number has already been claimed by the Incofocns. At the last Congressional election in Maryland, which took place in October 1037, the Whigs elected 1 members, nnd the Administration 4. During tho session of 1033, Mr. McKim, (h. F.) died, and soon nfter a special election wos held, when Mr. Kennedy, (whig) wos elected to fill the vacancy. In tho next Congress tho delegation of Maryland will stand Whigs 3; Loco 5. Turnips and Potatoes.--Mr. C.Good rich has sent us a btipcrb English turnip, weighing nine lbs. It wnsrnised on worn out pine plain land, manured with swamp muck only. Mr. G. has also raised a bushel of Ilohan potatoes from a single tuber, and we have now belore us a specimen of their sire, weighing about two lbs. Our neighbor Pcasleo also informs us that ho has roised threo bushels from three po tatoes planting. Whether this extra yield is the result of superior productiveness in tins variety of tho "Murphy" tribo or not. wo ore not quite sure ; uur is it material. Tho Rohan is doubtless n very excellent pototoc, and lika most its kindred, pays well foroorf cultivation. Squashes. Howatd of the "cheap cash store," line got his windows decorated with the finest specimen we hove seen in this line, They are not, to bo sure, quite os large as the Vcrgcnne3 Fquash, but they exceed in beauty, we venture to 6ny, any thing that can bo produced- They aro worth looking nt, to every man who can appreciate tho substantial reality of a dish of corned mutton nnd its appropriate ac companimenK GRIEVANCE.; It is indeed mortifying to ask on indi dual that would resent the insinuation that he was not a gcntlcmun,o refrain from petty misdemeanors which would subject a common loafer to the penitentiary. But we are under this necessity. We allude to tho individual wtio is in the habit of purloining from our reading room the N. Y. Herald, and other papers. The griev ancc is too great to be longer endured, ond if the personage in question would avoid o public exposure, he must mend his ways in this particular. To prevent oil misapprehension, we could here repeat that no person is ot liberty to take a poper from the room, under any circumstances what ever. And for tho information of another class it may not be amiss to remark, that the establishment, is designed exclusively for tulscribcrs nnd such persons from abroad as they may introduce. Fiom llic Albany Daily Advertiser, October 7. The Do Witt Clinton arrived about 4 o'clock this morning. We are indebted to Mr. Kcmpton of the De Witt for a copy of the Sunday Morning News, from which we extract the particulars of another dis.. osirous conflagration which occurred at N. York early on the morning of yesterday. After giving an account of a lire in Eld. ridge st. by which two buildings ond number of small tenements were destroyed, "the News" proceeds: TERRIBLE CONFLAGRATION! ! Another ! While tho above firo wn in progress, the bells and illumination announced n second in Water sirect, bn. I ween Fulton street nnd Burling slip.

Wo must reluctantly go to press; what tho full result maybe, we shudder to conjecturo! GREAT FIRE IN PHILADELPHIA. Tho Philadelphia papers of Saturday morning bring the intelligence of a most destructive firo which occurred in that city on Friday night. It broke out about half past 11 o'clock in Mr. Prcscotl'a large provision stores, on South wharves, be tween Market nnd Chcsnut 6trcets, and burnt for several hours. Tho adjoining stores in tho same block, (says the Philadelphia Inquirer,) all three story brick buildings, were soon on lire nnd the worn house of Messrs. Si roup, Prcscott, Hording, nnd (we believe) Chccscborough, burnt with incredible fury -nnd wero nil either much injured, or reduced to a heap of ruins. From the same paper wo copy the on nnxed postscripts, announcing the further progress of the flames, 2 o'clock, A. M Thcjlames still rasing The conflagra tion has increased. Up to this time, from 32 to 35 buildings have cither been de stroyed or are now burning. They cm hroco threo stores on tho wharf above Chcsnut street, and south of the building occupied by Gront & Stone; 9 houses on the eatl side of Water st., 12 on the west, G on the east side of Front 6t., and 4 or 5 on tho west. 3 o'clock. The firo has crossed Chcsnut st. and nvernl buildings on the south side arc in flames. Ten minutes later. The flames on the west sido of Front st. aro subdued. The wind more northerly. The Sunday Morning News of yesterday totes "that moro than 40 houses have been destroyed. Tho loss is estimated at sUOOOOO to $500,000 insuranco about ii-250,000. Several individuals wero uu- luuhtcdly killed by various mischances, and several wounded." THE NEW GOVERNOR or CANADA Tlic most loyal of the Canadian papers continue to abuse the new Governor, Mr. riiomson, They seem to fear his coming, and arc doing all in their power to preju dice the public mind against him, even before plans of'operation nre known. The appointment is but little more solisfacloty to tho Reformers. and MacKenzio in his Inst Gazette, sends out the following chapter embodying his opinion of the man appointed, the Government appointing, and tho colony over which Mr. Thomson, is to preside. Tho communication between Gov. Thomson and General MacKcnzie is The oppoin'ment of Mr. Charles Poulett Thomson (probably with a peerage) to Ihe elevated niuation successively lield by Kempt, Aylmer, Gosford, Durham and Colborne, indicates n peculiarly critical stntoof affairs in Canada. Some poisons think tho appointment a liberal one, and the tory presses already denounce it ts proof of ministerial enmity to Canadian interests. When it is considered that England is overwhelmed with debt, Ecarce nf cash, cmbarrnsscd with chartism on one side nnd the precursors on another, bur- thencd with tins care of regulating Turkey and preserving lntha in the east. ond deeply engaged in colonizing New South Wales, it might be surmised that she would bo compelled to rid herself of the Oregon and North Last Boundary Questions, tho Can ada Timber bounty, and tho expensive and unpromising job of Canadian government, by abandoning l ho colonies, but wo do not think that as yet she has nny such internum. It may be said that because Mr. rlHimsiiu previous lo 1030 wos n merchant of Lon don. engaged in Ihe Baltic trade, reputed to bo friendly to unshackled commerce, and an ndvocolo of a removal of tho extra duties on Bnltic in favor of Canadian Mm her, ho will now act on his former opinions. Wo doubt it. Ho is, wo think, n younger son of a family ol rank was ini reduced inin parliament for Dover, through the influence of Mr. Humu, as a indicnl, nnd took office under Lord Gray, in December, 1!!30, n Vice President of ihe hoard of trnib'. of which the President, was Lord Auckland. On Lord Melbourne's advent to the premiership he became President of tho Hoard of Commerce nnd n Cabinet Miniver. In 1032, ho was returned by l he manufacturers of Manchester, with Mr. Mark Phillips, as their representative, in opposition In n Scotch tory called IIopi anil the celebrated Win Cohbett, who was run at the snuie lime lor Oldhnui and Man Chester, n nil had universal sullrugo pre. I vailed would have left Thomson fnr behind him. Governor Thomson has been the advocate of Irish and Cnnndinn coercion- waived Iho timber questionpocketed his old freo trndo opinions and steadily up hold Ihe whig government in nil its meas ures during the last 8 or 9 years. lie is a man of business and business habits, prac tical in his views ; but will stand by his order, as Enil Grey said, lo tho last. When tho Editor of this Gnzelto was in London, in 1032, ho had long conversations with Mr. Thomson at his office in White, hall, on tho questions of trade and currency involved in the memorials from Canada to the Kmg and Parliament, of which ho had been tho bearer lo England. Ono object I had in view was to put an end to Iho one, two, threo and four dollar bills, ond allow no bank to issue paper for less than five dollars to oblige tho rliar tered bonks, if they established 30 or 40 lii tie shaving shops or loan offices called branches, lo redeem their notes where they issued them lo prevent juggling by compelling tho bonks lo pay up their cupt lal and oihcrwiso to render these nuisan ces moro lolernblo by cheeking their ex travagant issues, Mr. Thomson agreed withmcin nil this, except as lo Iho one dollar hills, which ho was in favor of, if duly secured. Mr. Edward Ellico agreed with mo on that point nlsn. Tho ministry enva Sir John Colborno instructions in stiict conformity with my demands and tho tory legislature of 1031 all but rebelled in consequence. Tho reform parliament that followed was equally worthless on questions ot curroncy Banks, with liberty to cheat their neighbors wholesale, were their nods and thov cot enough of them Governor Thomson at ono time advocated tho indenendonco of tho Canadas -eo did Sir Henrv Parnoll in his "Financial Ro form." Governor T. asked me once and again whether the Canadas wero not now fit to govern themselves, and frankly ex pressed a wish that they had the power, I was quite careful of my answers, and wo changed the subject. Mr. Spring Rico put tho question to me, but in n more guar ded wny. Governor Thomson borrowed my copy oT tho Revised Statutes of Now York for tho purpose of examining the Inws regulating Montctl Corporations, on which he asked me mony questions. He was thoroughly in favor of Ihe joint stock bank scheme which tins added so much to the financial difficulties of England ; nnd will bo anxious on this sido the sen lo exert

himelf to Ihe utmost for tho benefit of the manufacturing classes of England. Mr. Sin nicy, Mr. Labnuchero nnd Mr. Shiol were grcot friends of Canada formerly, but it was nil talk. Tho two former have recently been Canada's most envenomed foes, and the latter has joined them. Sir J. Colbnrno will, wo presume, make way in a military capacity lor hir James Mocdoncll, the now catspaw of Scotland's enemies, whose ancestors liko mine had nt least an opinion of their own at the Sheriff muir, Killicrankic, Culiodcn, Preston Pans and Glcncnc. LowBit Canada, The Montreal Herald of Friday inform us that on Thursday fifty eight of tho Canadians under sentence of death, were shipped on board the steamer British America, to be ro-shipped on board the transport Buffalo, in which they will bo transported to Botany Bay for life. They wero chained in couples, and cscortou lo the steamer by a guard of tho 24th regment. "Thn Upper Canada rebels and brigands," tho Herald says, "whose sentences of death were commuted to transportation for life, arrived on Thursday evening by tho La. chine Canal, ond were shipped on board tho Steamer Saint George, and are destined to shore tho fate of tho other rebels, Both steamboats sailed oi soon as they had re ceived their cargoes." The editor was told that tho parting scene between tho convicts ond their relations was distressing in the extreme, ond caused tears to flow from all eyes which witnessed it. Albeit they wero "unused to the melting mood Twenty-five prisoners nre lo be released on giving satisfactory security that they will leave tho Province in forty-eight hours after their liberation, nnd never return lo it again. Two others, named Lcvesque and Pricur, ore to enter into n similar nr rangement, with this difference, that they nre to remove six hundred miles from the Province.
