FRIDAY MORNING, JANUARYS, 1811. Washimotom, Dec. 29lh. Atiumplion of State Debts State Stocks Iaxo 'oca Economy Natal Pension SStrtlctI'rt emnlion IJitl Proceedings in the Stnatt. The Houso of Representatives has been the theatre of interest to-day, instead of the Senate Chamber, The prominent nctor upon the public stage, lias been tho venerable Ex-Prcsidcnt John Quincy Adam?, 1 he audience wasvery large, and the play one of un common interest. The first business was the clearing of the Speaker's table of the bills which had passed the Senate ami accumulated there. The next was the reference of a petion from th good citizens of Mas. tachusetts, praying for the establishment of n General Bankrupt Law, which found its way to the committee on the judiciary. Tho third movement was in dispo. sins of the unfinished business of Thursday last, the Pre-emption system in perpetua, ns proposed by a member from Illinois. The taking upon this bill ended with the session of Thursday, and the action rpon it came to-day. Mr. Clunn of Louisiana, pro posed a summary disposition of the whole question, by a motion to lay upon the table. The majority in the House were notpieparcd for so hopelcsfti decision. and negatived the motion submitted, by yeas and nays, 1 1 1 to 59. The further consideration of the bill was then postponed to Wednesday of next week. An attempt was madc-hy some of its friends to have made tho special order for that day. Tho House re fused to fix upon that day or any other. The intci eating discussion followed. The chairman of the committee on naval affairs Francis Thomas Maryland had moved that tho Houso resolve itself into a committee of the whole on the state of l!i t'nion, for the purpose of considering the Naval Pen 6ion Hill. This bill has been often referred to during t'le present session of Congress, as one necessary pass before tho first of January. The Speaker placed Mr. McKay of North Carolina m the chair, as chair man of the committee. Mr. AJams forthwith commenced an examination of the conduct of the Administration in regard to Ih Naval Pension Fund, and proceeded to make some remarks to the House, which he had designed mike as long since as last June. I have but time glance at some of his important positions. You w sec that they place tho President, his Secretary of the Treasury, and his Admiuiv.ration, in any thing but a favorable light. First then, the bill before the House proposes an appiopriation of 8151,000, to meet a deficiency in the IS aval Pension I-und necessary to meet the annual demand upon the Treasury. This sum, after due in vestigation, has been reported as necessary, both by the committee of ways and means, and the committee on naval afTairs. But m:trk ye. The Scretary of the Treasury, in his cMmatc of the necessary expenses of the Government for the year to come, makes no pro vision or mention of this deficiency. And vv liile in the annual report of the sev enth of December, he siy i lhat no money should be appropriated not ineludtd in the estimates of the Department, in the a special report dattd thefirst, he says that the appropriation will It necessary. This is Levi Woodbury over and over aj-aiti. "Appropriate nothing without an estimate," says one report, and "you must appropriate S150,000, to prcssrve the faith of the Government," says another. Another fact pointed out by Mr. Adams, was this. In June last, the President solicited at tic hands of Congress, for this very Naval Pension service, the sum S;0,000. Congress, in the hurry and bustle of its June legislation, paid no attention to the call of the President, though the appropriation was made, and this lack of expenditure for this purpose, affords the text for ona of the President's beautiful sermons upon economy, debt, &.C. etc. Had the Pre-ident's wishes been complied with, the money would have been ap propiiatcd and expended ; but not complied with, the Executive says to the country, "Behold that which I have done, in reducing the annual expenditures of the Government to between twenty-six and twenty-seven millions of dollars !" This is but an example of a com mon occurrence. Another fact brought to light by Mr. Adam-, is the important one, that in 1S37, the Naval Pension Fund had accumulated to the immense mm of twelve hundred thousand dollars I Now it is ex hausted, and it is to meet the deficiency, that the bill to-day before the House, was introduced. From 81,200,000, the fund when Mr. Van Huren came into power, we go to nothing, or lets than nothing, upon the eve of Mr. Van Buren' s retirement. Again, in 1337, the chairman of the commitlie of finance in the Senate the same then as now Silas Wuight re commended that this accumulated fund should be in vested in state Stocks. His recommendation was based upon a prior recommendation of the Secretary of the Treasury! The recommendation was complied with, and ih consequence has been that the slocks which Mr. Woodbury bought at a premium of 0 per cent., he sold, eiehtccn months after, 42 per cent, minus their par value, and at all rates from 8G2 to $105. The investment of Indian Trust Funds has been upon similar rates. The loss, of course, is the Government's, which is pledged to keep good the principal, and pay an annual m'crcst upon the amount. Mr. Adams, in his most emphatic manner, also gave the history of the Smithsonian Bequest, and in troduced his remarks upon this head with come ap propriate allusions to the facts of the Annual Report of the Secretary of the Treasuiy, and Message of the President, which refer to the subject of State Debts. It had been said, also, and by the President's party, that "British Gold" had an influence upon our elec tions. If it were true, the President, inhisown elec tion, had given tho only exemplification of the fact. The facts connected with the reception of and dispo sition of the Smithsonian Bequest were as follows: The money, which was "British Gold," real sover eigns, had not been three days in the Mint, before it was posted off to Arkansas, and used in making a Bank. The half million of foreign gold went to Ar kansas, and Arkansas gave the General Government five bonds of one hundred thousand dollars each. Arkansas had given her electoral vote to Martin Van Buren. The inference, if the "British Oo'd " hum bug was true, was plain. The Ex-Prcsidcnt -o gate the his ory of this investment ; and it seems tl at as soon as the keen-scented Representatives of the state ol Arkansas in Congress found out that the "British Gold" was in the Mint, th y had an order taken on to tho West Point Bill, authorising the S. crctary of the Treasury to inoko tho investment, which went first to Arkansas, nnd there was converted into one of those modern monsters, a Hank a Bank, too, the capital of which was bona feds "British Gold." Think of that, ye unsophisticated Locos Focos. I wish I could put upon paper all that Mr. Adams said upon the subject of a National Debt, in reply to the Mcssige, and what fell from his lips also upon the subject of the immediate question 1 cforo the House. The members of the House were interested, elec trified almost, I may say, for the subjoct had been unexpectedly brought forward, and nobody dreamel that so pungent an examination of the history of the Naval Pension Fund was to follow tho intioduction of the Bill i but the speech came, and it was even more caustic in manner and matter than what is often heard even from the tongro of Mr. Adams. For an hour and longer, the closest attention was given to the speaker, and the random shots against tho President nnd Treasurer were better timed and the more eitee five from the hap-hazard and desultory manner in which they were fired. Mr. Adams invited Mr. Thomas to the defence, but the Chairman of theNaval Committee knew his man and his subject too well to venture upon such a crusa de. Tht Bill, therefore, in Committee, on one being opposed to the appropriation, was no more debated, In the House, fter it was reported, MY. Reed, of Mass., Mr. Wise, ofVa., Mr. Mouroo, of New York Mr. Shephord, of N. C, and Mr. Anderson of Main, had something to say upon the subject, when the. Bill was engrossed and passed finally with in amendment which repeals the Naval Pension Art of March 3d. 1 337. The amendment was a contested point with the members, and was adopted only by the small majority of lOof ISO or 160 votes. More of this Bill and the Naval Pension Fund hereafter. No one sub ject over which the Administration have had control, has been worse managed. You will find in the- end that the action of the Government upon the subject fcaareen ttpivelrnt tsn irtrmr lion if Stsrs Pbr. Tho Scnato session was not of much importance. Many private bills were ordered to be engrossed during the day, and several petitions presented praying for a General Bankrupt Law. Mr. Benton also submitted resolution of inquiry in relation to tho propriety or risking an appropriation for an outfit to Commodote Porter as Resident Minister to Constantinople. To' morrow the death of Felix Grundy will probably be announced, as the waybill received to-day makes mention, I am told, of his final good night to all things here below. P. S. I have heard that there is an important case upon trial at the Circuit Court now tn session Stock' ton Sc. Stokes tern Amos Kendall. The mail con' tractors have suid the Ex-Postmaster General, in his private capacity, in the sum of 3110,000, for damages I growing out of Mr. Kendall's refusal to execute the I laws granting him his allowances prior to the mcmor able mandamus of the Circuit Court. Walter Jones, a staunch Whig, has been employed by Kendall as counsellor, and Mr. Eaton, Ex-Minister to Spain, by Stockton & Stokes. Mr Benton, from the Committee on Militarv Af fairs, reported a bill for the relief of the Missouri vol unteers. The resolution ofiered liv Mr Tnllm-ldirn VMfprrfnv. in regara to Treasury notes, was adopted. i nu omer business was not of public importance. n-.L tl J: I -. r uuui nuusi-s nujourncu 10 iwonuay. HIGHLY IMPORTANT FROM WASHINGTON THE CAROLINE OUTRAGE AVOWED BY THE BRITISH GOVERNMENT. Wasiiixodom. Dec. 31. 1S40. Mr. Fillmore of N. Y., asked the printing of five thousand copies of a letter and other documents from theStatc Department in reference to McLcod, charged with aiding in the burnine of the Caroline. It embra ces a correspondence between the Amciican Minister at London, tne lirinsn Minister here, and the. Secre tary of State. After the five thousand conies had been ordered to be printed, a motion to reconsider was ottered uy itir. Allord, ol ueorgia. .u r a. was anxious 10 near tne documents read, and tho reading was commenced by the Clerk. I send you n synopsis of the corrrcspondcnce. The documents were, first, a brief message from the President, transmitting the correspondence between me lunciiuuarics oi inc two uoveriimcnts. Secondly, a letter from Mr Stevenson, at London. addressed to the Secretary of Stale, saying that no answer had been received to the nuestlon submitted from the United States Government respecting the ourmng ni uic uaroriie. The third letter was from Mr Fox to Mr Forsyth, siating mai uic nriiisn uovernmcni would probably answer the questions submitted without delav. Some time intervened, when a correspondence up on the arrest of McLeod, now in prison in New York, was commenced. The first letter conccrninc the ar rest is one which will excite some attention in the country. It is addressed by the British Minister to the Secretary of State, and in it lie comnlains of the ar rest of a subject of Great Britain, nnd his imprisonment in New York. He demands the uleno of the pris oner, and proceeds to avow the principle or fact, that the ncnsiNO oniiECAnoLiNE was an act committed r.v the British AcTiionrriEs. McLcod, lie asserts, if employed in burning the Oaroline, which he very much doubts, was employed by authority. The British authorities, therefore, he proceeds to say, are responsible, and not McLcod. The ouestion. ns a ennSLnuencc. if in lm r.-tnirnvro-trtl becomes one which must be settled bv the two Gov ernments and not by the prisoner. 'This was well Known, lie thought, or certainly was more than inti mated at the time, as it has been since, and ntinn mnnv occasions. Mr. Fox enlarged upon the idea that the priso' er nctcd upon authority, and that the suhiect matier of compl lint was one fj-jthe two Governments to settle. In condition ngnin he expreses the hope I,,.,, iu ,ii?uiici viit oe specuuy mciiFCll. The mot interesting part of the correspond, nee is a reply of the Secretary ol State to tho British Minister. Mr Forsyth in courteous terms, acknowledges the relcptipn ot the letter of Mr Fox, ami reiterates the ground of complaint. Under the advice and direction of the President, he proceeds tn answer the complaints. Always desirous to prcscrvcthe amicable re lations be tween the two Governments, he professes lobe still desirous to terminate the present rontrorry in the same friendly spirit. He speaks nf the delicate ques tions which have been brouqlit before tlicGnvermiient in times pnt, and appeal to Mr Fox lo bear testimony mo iiii'iiuijr m-viuiuiun iii me rresiocnt ana the u. States towards Great Britain. It is with unfeigned rtgret hesavs, that he cannot now comply with the request submitted, but he cannot and for reasons given at length. The circumstances conncctca with the arrest of the prisoner forbid it c nn-iiiiuiKm niin iiton, commuted upon Amen i nit nun mill rage, and theprisoner was confined or arraigned under the charge of beinp one of a band of lawless marau ders.

Foronehn was ready to approve ot the letter of tin Secretary of State, and I do cheerfully finnrmf. nf it. said Mr. Alford and the more nadily since it is the first official act which I can remember which has been submitted by this Administration, which has met my approbation.

Mr. Alford, ilia tone of hieh fcelinc. nrnrceded tn comment upon the conduct of Great Britain in all her recent territorial relation' with this Government, As on American he fill humbled.

Like Ihc Con stitution, the doctrine WH8 pnnalm mm An,tn.A chose to understand it, and every man understood it ior niiiiscii. But I am glad, said Mr Holmes, for another reason. We have heard from a gentleman of influence and standing, who represents the South; something ol the policy of the new administration. I am sorrv that inc gentleman speaks in a tone bo warlike, of prospect; so belligerent. I am for peace. If there was a war, we at the South would be ruined by it. I am there. fore opposed to, and fear that it will be the policy of '""iiiaiiuii iur i presume tne memrjer irom Georgia sneaksby authoriiy. Mr. Alford replied.

Mr Cushinr snokeinrenlv toMr ITnlme r.1 s n also and in approval of the patriotic sentiments which hndfallen from the lipsof the member from Oponrin. Ha was delighted to near them, and believed lhat upon reflection ihey would find approval even in lite heart oi tne member rrom South Carolina. It was singular enough. Mr Cushine thought, that while the members nf this Congress had from their seats here and from the hustings, proclaimed that tho great Whig parly were alliesof the British, they were now acccsingthat very party of being anxious to rush into a war with Great Britain. Mr Duncan of Ohio, rose to offer some remarks, but oemg oi n pariy nature, ne was callol to order. The whole subject was brought to a close by the wiiiiuibwiiui me motion to reconsiaer, FRAUDS ON THE REVENUE. We observe that the consideration of Mr, Adams' bill for the suppression of frauds upon tho revenue has been fixed for a day certain and wo shall in a few days have the result. It is a well understood maxim of English policy, that there is no wrong in evading or violating tho revenue laws of other countries ; and it is well understood by English exporters that any facili. liw hr tuth ttishn ct vjejttjon that tk En- glish Custom House can afford are never with held, and that false invoices and false valuations may pass with impunity, when tho object is to nflcct the revenue of other countries. Hence the- monstrous frauds which have been imposed upon our revenue by English importers, to check which the bill of Mr. Adams has been introduced. We arc at a loss to account for tho course of some Southern Whigs upon Mr. Adams' Rev. cnue Dill. The very name of tariff appears to have such a fearful power that it is only ncces sary to speak it in order to bring down the most violent opposition. In what way a bill for the honest collection of the duties can be construed into a measure for increasing them we do not see, yet such is the view .which Mr. iso and some others have taken of it. Now these gen tle'tncil need not feci any alarm upon the bug. bear subject of tariff. That an increased tariff for revenue will be demanded very speedily is uidoubtcdly true, for the revenue of the gov emment has fallen behind its expenditure at the rrte of $7,000,000 annually, until we have con. traded a pretty respectable national debt, and the new administration will not go upon the p'inciplc of contracting a new debt to pay an old one ; and it is probable that the reduction o! dlties already provided for will balance the in cicascil economy of tho Treasury. There is tm re fore little question that the duties will havi to be increased in order to meet the expenses of the government ; but any increase for protection will not be asked for ; at all events, not by those engaged in manufacturing. Tho compromise bill faithfully and honestly executed is all that they want. Tho next time a tariff for protcc tion is demanded, the call will come from the south of the Potomac. Interest is a wonderful argument even upon constitutional question and the sound of the spindle and the shuttle, already beginning to be heard in Alabama, Georgia and Norih Carolina, will carry convic tion to the car, compared to which the logic of Webster or the eloquence of Clay are faint. Tho measures of England for the introduction of Indian cotton are tending to the same end, and will soon awaken the advocates of free trade to the necessity of the policy adopted by the whole civilized world. From the Boston Atlas. SYMPTOMS OF TROUBLE IN THE TORY RANKS, It is not a little amusing to witness the great anxiety which the would-bc-candidatcs for the Presidency among the leaders manifest to trum- pet abroad their great regard for Mr. Van Buren. The "man of Kinderhook" has been so badly beaten that lie is not only defeated but forever disgraced. Tho Loco Foco party, we think, can never again be brought to rally to his support. Aware of this we see tho Rontons, tho Calhouns, the Buchanans, et id omne aenut, of aspirants for the honor of a defeat four years hence, each striving to outdo the other in their expressions of devotion to their prostrate chief. By so doing they pass with tho party for a vast deal of credit and regard on the score of self denial devotion to the cause, while they have nothing to apprehend from one who has utterly ruined their party, and can therefore extol him without fear. Their praise of Martin Van Buren costs them nothing while they hope to benefit by it. But they will find that their efforts will be as unsuccessful as their professions of love to ccrc. I here arc too many aspirants not to jostle one another, and the road by which Benton Calhoun, etc. are striving to reach the goal, is open to all. Already are the travellers therein crossing the path of ono another. Benton, on his Vr.'iy to Washington, Tritl.uul t-UllbUllilllOll with his party, announces in Cincinnati his de sire that Van Buren may be the candidate four years hence. But Mr. Calhoun docs this on his way from Charleston, and Mr. Buchanan, from Pennsylvania. Each wishes to forestall public opinion, and, each by uniting in a pretended desire to promote what they are most anxious to prevent, may, in the end, bring about the very result they are most anxious to avoid. Mean while Calhoun manifests symptoms of an inten tion to desert in case he is not the candidate -Benton denounces him, while Buchanan, King of Alabama, Nicholas, and others, are doing all they can to checkmate the movements of both. In reference to this matter the Washington correspondent of the Philadelphia North Ameri can says : "Mr Calhoun has disconnected his friends bv avowing a determination to give a qualified sun, Po" to General Harrison. He waits for hi. his measures, for the full disclosure of his policy, before he will commence an opposition ; and he promises him a heavy support in case his mea sures should suit his views. Tho next gentle man is Mr. Buchanan, but lie is viewed with great jealousy. Mr. Benton has no strength in the Senate, whatever he may have with the radi. cal interests of the countrv. The measures which he brings forward and advocates are Gen erally spurned by his own political friends in that body." The following letter of Col. Benton to the Cincinnati Advertiser, will be read with interest in reference to this subject. While it shows tho pompous and inflated arrogance of the writer, it also contains internal evidence of his in sin cerity in his pretended anxiety to have.any other person than himself a candidate for tho Presi dency four years hence. It is a matter, however, of interest only. It is wholly wanting in importance. For what mat. tcrs it who is the candidate of a party 60 hope, lessly in the minority as the Loco Focos. It will make precious little difference whom the Tories may tet up as the candidate to be over, thrown. Senate Chamdeb, Dec. 16, 1840.

BiNrcnv-Th irrt fecr cfthe Lrvrn has spoken. Thomas Haiit Benton has de clared that ho means to support Mr. Van Bu- nr.N ngainst the world for tho next President, and his liege friends in the West Imvo obeyed s commands. Wtiorefore this move 1 Why has a leading portion of this party thus violated solemn custom of the country, in bringing for- ward an ex-President, that will be,as a candidate for re-election 1 Why, more especially, has it disregarded its great principle that no man ought to serve more than one term 1 The reason is plain. Thomas Haiit Benton knows that Martin Van Buren never can be President again, uut he intends through this shallow policy to keep the political coast clear, by un ving off tho political aspirants of his own party, and he docs this in order to secure eventually his own success. Poor man. He will mire in his own pool. He has not strength enough to place any man in power, nor character enough to gain a higher station than he now fills. But his letter is below : and we beg our readers to po ruse it.' We only remark, in conclusion, that it is quite farcial in the Senator, to talk of the matter being settlrd at Washington, when he hid arranged the wholo business before he left. the West. However, this is in full keeping with his general conduct. REMOVAL OF SIR JOHN HARVEY, Lord Sydenham appears determined to remove, in a quiet way that will cause no inconvenient results to the government, all the torics in command in the nritisn I'rovinces in America. I ot long since, we an nounced tho appointment of Sir Colin Campbell to the command of Ceylon, as n quiet way to remove him from the govcrnaicnt of Nova Scotia. Sir John Harvey, it nppcars, is to be disposed of in a similar manner. The London Globe announces that Maior General Sir Thomas Pearson, now in command of tne worth ot Ireland, is toprocced toINcw Wunswick in the room of Major General Sir John Harvey, or dered to India.

"We understand that His Excellency, the Governor General, has most emphatically declared that ho will not remove any of the troons rccintlv sent by his or- ders to the Madawaska territory, and that ho consi ders Sir John Harvey too councous by a great deal, in notifying the braggadocio Governor of Maine that ueiueiiiiiciii oi iriu:n iruupsunu inKcuup a position.

This detach ment of troops has been sent for the purposeof aiding inc uivh .Magistrates in ine execution oi ine laws oi Province, nnd protecting the rights of Her Majesty's subjects. Sir John stated to Governor Fairfield, that he had not any thing to do with the matter, and that he had advised the Governor General to order the withdrawal of the troops, and substitute an armed civil posse, as amply sufficient for all the purposes for which the troop was intended. This, as we said above, His Excellency has declared his determination not to do. and when once he says he will or will not do so and so, our readers may rest assured he will stick to it." The Mysterious Mermen at Brooklyn. We learn through the indefatigable exertions of the Mayor and Police of Brooklyn, Hint n full discovery of the cause, and perpetrators of the dreadful murder of Mr. Phclp's son, which occurcd about four weeks since, has been effected. It appears that a gang of some halfadozcn young men had associated themselves nnd had eflecttd several most daring burglaries. The robbcrrv of Mr Phclns house was resolved noon, and the deceased was applied to, to aid in the nefarious project, i ins nc rciusca to ao, nna inrnatencu to dis close the wholo plot, if it was persisted in. The gang of burglars became alarmed, and to prevent disclos ure, the horid act of murder was committed. The leader of the gang is n lad not more than IS years of age, nnd is son of a highly respectable mem ber of tho New York Bar, resident at Brooklyn. Ho has confessed the whole facts, and efforts are now makinc to procure his admission as State's evidence against his accomplices, of whom three out of five have been arrested, and are now in prison. We, for obvious reason-, supprc s the names of ti e parties under arrest though the whole matter will he doubt less developed in a day or two at farthest.

We do not billevc the annals of crime can furnish an instance of the kind more shocking in Us details one which was perpetrated with such brutality and cool premeditation The bare recital is sufficient to sicken the heart of the most abandoned nnd brutal. The particulars, as we gather them from the lips of tne murderer, and irom inc proceedings nclore ine coroner (Giles M.

On the 20th inst., Ilardenbereh left his residence in the town of Rockland, with the intention he says, of brincina Hasbrouc; to a settlement, and with the firm determination of murderim? him if he could not. He armed himself with n rifle and pistol, the latter of wmcn ncnau oougiii inc uay previously, ana proceca

ed to the village of Liberty, where he purchased some percussion caps. When asked what he was going to do with them, he said he intended to snoot a hear. He next attended Divine Service in Liberty, from which nlare ho proceeded to tho residence of Mr. Has brouck, in Woodbourse. He says that before entering the house he tell upon nis Knees and prayed lervently "(hat the cup might pass from him" that he mignt not be under the necessity of killing Hasbrouck ; out that thclalter would adjust the matter in dispute ami cably. He then' entered Hasbrouck's house, leaving his weapons at the door. Hasbrouck. his wife and the aunt of Hardenhergh, an elderly lady residing wiiii iiusuruucK, were eaimg supper wneii uc rcacneu there, aud invited him to partake with them, to stay all night, ntc, which lie refused to dot After supper he commenced talking of the matter in dispute, and urged Hasbrouck very strenuously to accede to his proposition. Hasbrouck said ho would or could not. The murderer then threatened to be revenged, and after a few more words left, bidding the deceased and his family good evening. In a few moments he re turned with his rifle and aiming it at Hasbrouck, told him that unless he agreed to his proposal " he was a dead man." Tho latter iuinped no instantly, seized hold of the rifle, and turned the muzzle aside. At this moment the rifle was discharccd accident!', the con tents passing through tho floor a few feet from Has- nrouck, anu into the cellar. nasnroucK sun neiu fast the rifle, while the other drew his pistol and fired. The ball took effect, entering the abdomen near the naval in a transverse direction, cutting open the abdomen, and rupturing tho intestines, which protru ded from the wound. He then struck Hasbrouck twice with the pistol, when it dropped from his hand. The blows brought Habroucl on his hands and knees. Hasbrouck says that for a moment he was at a loss what to do, as he was not satisfied that the de ceased had received a mortal wound. He however thouchtof hispocket knife, which hcinstantly made, use of by attempting to stab Hasbrouck in the throat. Hasbrouck's wife, however, (who was in the room during the whole transaction ) sprang forward and placed her hand unon her husband a neck, exclaiminm " You have kited him already I For God s sake don't cut his throat I" Regardless of her entreaties, he per sisted in his diabolical attack upon the wounded man cut her hand severely stabbed her husband in the icinpie, ana, in ms mriner aiiemjus iu cut ms.iuiuai, inflicted a number of ghastly wounds upon his face, one of which extended from his mouth to his shoulder blade, nassinc throueh his check, under his car, aud across the back of Ins neck, and cvcring. the jugular vein. He continued to cut and stab him in a manner too brutal for drscription till the knife was cither wrested from him bv Hasbouck or fell from his hand accidentally. Hisbrouck rcized the knife, and, as is supposed stabbed his assailant in the breast, inflic ting a severe, though not mortal wound. The latter then seized a chair and struck the other with it once or twice ; but findine lhat ho could not accomplish his nendisn purpose with it, he threw it asiae, went out andobteined a billet of wood. In the interim Has brouck, mangled as he was, and bleeding at every pore, srent into an adjoining room, assisted by his wife, who locked the door. Hardenhergh atlempled to burst open the boor, but l. : , . . ... .. , ... n . n j uc-mij miorujicu uy ine arrival oi iiir, o. i. nroaa head and Mr. J. S. Wells of Woodbourne, who had been alarmed by the cries ofone of the family for as sistance, he desisted, and left the house with his rifle and pistol. Being followed by the above named gen tlemen, he threatened ihem with death, which caused ihem to mm back. He wandered about a short time in the fields, bleeding profiisely from the wound in the breast, with the intention, he says, of ascertaing whether he had sufficient strength left lo reach this village, when he meant to deliver himtelf up i but finding lhat he had not, he proceeded to the residence ff Irs kinsman. Thomas JL Hardenhergh, eq, and fe!d h.m Mhithehvl don lit Taftlly committed by Es-,u'.re Divine, and is now in prison awaiting his Mr Hasbrouck expired a few moments after Har lenbcrgh left the house, having barely time to coll his tamuy nrounu mm, anu uw uicin nuieu. nu . 63 years of age connected with 'he mcst rcspcctablo nnd influential families of this and uisier couriiy, nun has held many offices or trust and honor, lie repre sented this" county n few years since, in the legisla ture or this state ana was tne ncmocrauc cmiuiunii: for congress In this district two yeats ago, in opposi tion to the Hon.

He gave us the foregoing particulars with ns much sangfroid as if he had been describing a conflict with a wild boast. Being asked if Has brouck appeared to bo fiightcned during the struggle, he said, ''No. He foughtliko a hero t" and seemed to admire his bravcrv. He will relate to any one who questions him, nil the circumstances respecting this shockingafTair in an offhand, semi-modest way, with out showing tho least feeling, or appearing torcgrct having committed tho awful deed. The only indica tion he evinces of a spark of humanity being. tn his bosom, is when questioned conccrnine his wife and family. While with him, we askel whether he wished to see them. He answered with considerable emo tion. "TVnnntvet. Thov nrn not nrenared for the interview." He is about 43 years of age, and has not the appearance of being the demon he is having a somewhat mild, though determined and fearless as pect. His education is apparently goon, ana no is connected with many very respectable families resi ding in this county. . , Tho reason heassiens for this infamous net, is the insufficiency of the law to reach his controversy with the deceased, and he had therefore concluded to lane the law into his own hands. LATER FROM CANTON. By the Lion, at Newport, from Canton for New York, advices from Macao to July 11, and from Whampoa to tho 8th, have been received. Much excitement had been caused at Canton, by the capture at Bogue, by tho British block ading squadron, of eight or ten junks with salt from Cochin China; and every foreigner was to leave for Macoa within a week. We are indebted to a friendfor a Canton paper of July 11. It is dated at Macao, and contains a variety of intelligence of events which had occurred in the vicinity, The British blockade was entrusted exclusively to Tour ships-of-war, vix. the sloops-of-war Vofage and Hyacinth, at the Bogue, the sloop-of-war Iarne at the Ma cao roads, and the frigate Druid at Cap-sing Moon. All the other slups-of-war and trans, ports had proceeded to the northward, and had not been heard from since their departure. The paper expresses the opinion that tho force re maining is altogether inadequate to the object of so effectually stopping the trades to produce any effect upon the Chinese people. It is 6tated that Uanton is accessible by ight cralt through river channels at the westwa-d, which are not obstructed by the blockade, ind that supplies may be obtained, and merchandise exportea through these channels. When Gov. Lina heard of the seizure of the first salt junk, the Hong mer:hants.vero ordered into the city, and on their return they appeared much frightened. On the 4th, the few remain ing foreign residents wercsummoncdtothccity but they declined going, ard their visit was not insisted on. Since the issuing of the proclama tion offering rewards for Englishmen, the com mon people have appeared inimical and insolent to foreigners in Canton. On complaint to the Hong merchants for insults received by tho foreigners, 20 coolies of each Hong were sta tioned as guards in the streets as a watch upon the populace. Tho proclamation offering re wards for the destruction of English vessels and Englishmen had been published in all the vil lages in the neighborhood of Macoa and Canton. Gov. Lina had rennired that 5000 men should be enlisted, 2000 at the expense of tho Hong mer chants, 2000 at that of the salt monopolists, and and 1000 at that of the Chinchcw merchants, for the defence of the country. They were to be sent outside the Bogue in fishing boats to attack the blockading ships. Junks were fitted out in great numbers for this service. The men were promised 8100 for every white man's head thev should bring home, and S200 were to bo paid to the families of such as should lose their lives. The Chinese appear to attribute it to weakness on tho part of the English that no at tack had been made on Uic runs. A proclamation was issued dated July 2, by Heanirshanhien, or Chief Magistrate of the dis trict of Heangshan, to which the authorities of Macao are subordinate. Ihc proclamation calls upon the people to unite heart and hand with the government, in opposing the barbarian?, anil orders that no Chinese vessels be allowed to proceed to see, except such as are laden with combustibles for the destruction of the British ships. The people are offered rewards for kill ing Englishmen, hut they are cautioned not to mistake for them Portuguese or other foreigners, as in such case they will be punished under the laws for murder. The proof of having killed an Englishman with his head, the delivery of which to a district magistrate will entitle the bearer to tho reward. The proclamation concludes with an earnest appeal to the people to distinguish themselves, for tho relief of their country and their own benefit. "Why," it exclaims, "will you continue poor and servile, when by one effort yon can become rich and honored !" Tho Canton Press publishes the following statement of the quantities of tea and raw silk exported annually, including what had been shipped in American and other bottoms, by way of Singapore and Rio.

A resolution has passed tho Congress of Texas, authorizing the President to accept the services of 5000 volunteers for the invasion of Mexico, the soldiers to have what they can get from the enemy, and a league each of the conquered territory.

On Saturday last, just before night, the daughter of George Tooker, of Hog neck, aged 8 years, ran out to slide on the ice, which covered a mud hole, not far from the house, when Ihc ice gave way and she sunk in the mud, her head and hands only being above the ice, where she was found the next morning.

EniTon Whenever wo notice tho prevalence of n public evil, wo naturnlly look to tho press ns ono or the readiest methods of removing it. If unahlo in this manner to correct il, wocanot least expose it, nnd wnrn others of their danger. Permit me, through iho medium of your paper, to call the attention of the public to nn evil which must bo regarded ns n se rious one, nnd ought to bo considered u disgrace to tho village. I mean tho danger incurred by thoso who walk the streets, from the furious teams, and the no less furious or heedless drivers. Whether fiom a wish to display the horse to good advantage, or his own skill, by driving ns near ns possible, without act ually running over one, or an entire disregard to tho safety and convenience of all but self, it is rendered absolutely unsafe for any one to appear in the streets on foot, unless a stout man, and he armed and con stantly on the look out. It is almost at the hazard of life that one undertakes to walk to church on tho Sabbath t and it would ap pear ludicrous, were not the occasion too serious, to see ladies and gentlemen who walk, twisting their necks, and turning their faces behind them, to watch. ready to doJgc, if possible, the next sleigh. But this seems their only security. We might expect at least a show of gallantry or common politeness would be observed towards tho ladies but they, too, are often obhgeJ to step into the snow, nnd doubtless think themselves fortunate, if they escape so, But tho danger is not confined to church-going. In fact one can never feel sure that ho is safe any day or nt any time of day. A few evenings since, a gen tUman was walking down Pearl street, quito on one side of tho road, when a sleigh behind came so close upon him before he was aware, that he could not avoid it, before ho was knocked overt the shaft caught his clothes, by which he was dtngged nt Ihc imminent haz7ard of life, near the horse's heels, till his cloak was stnpt from him, nnd his coat torn off, when ho was fortunately left. The gentleman driver (for he had the exterior of a gentleman) then reigned up bis horse long enough to have him freed from tho cloak, still hanging to the harness, and to find that the per son knocked over was not so seriously injured but ho could rise and walk and speak, but without wailing to ascertain the extent of tho injury done, drove oft". Nor is this the only accident of the kind that has oc curred in our streets from a similar cause. I would not impute it to design on the part of the driver, but certainly no better reason can be assigned than sheer carelessness. If gentlemen wish to display their horsemanship, (and some, it must be confessed, can drive extremely near a mark and not hit il,) don't let them make us poor bodies who walk, Iho subject of their experiments. In a city, where royalty is displayed, and titlcsof no bility recognized, and carriages constantly passing, emblazoned with the family coat of arms, wo might perhaps beawed to a safe distance ; yet even dure we might claim a humble path where we could walk se curely. But in this land nf equal right", where we call no man master or lord, (even if he does ride while we walk) and where the privilege is conceded to none, of trampling on his fellows with impunity, it is too bad to be thus exposed. If the lots of a coat were all, the evil would be less ; but to endanger life and limb is a serious matter. And why cannot we have the side walks open, at least one on a street 1 If gentlemen w ho are fond of displaying their teams, would attach them to a small scraper, after a fall of snow, and ilriie through the side-walks where it can be done, they surely could not display the horse or driver to better effect. But if it cannot bo done without, we had better haea contribution taken, and some one employed to shovel them out, rather than be so much exposed. Either this or carefulness and accommodation on the part of all drivers, would oblige many I am sure, at least. Onk who walks to Cucntii. MoNTrELir.it, Jan. 5. The trial of Benj. F.
