IXTTIUtS FROM THE METROPOLIS. No. V. Nr.w Ynnn, March 27, 1311. Several vcrv valuable publications hac boon brought out by our publishing houses during tlic past week. Tlio Applctons have just issued a work whicli will 1)0 warmly welcomed by scholars and highly prized by tlio general read cr : it is Schlegcl' Philosophy of History,' trans lated from tlio Herman by James Uusscl Robert-! son. An interesting Memoir of the Author is nrclhcd. As a philosophical work, I do not think it fully equal to many of the productions of it celebrated author : his Lectures on Dra matic Literature are distinguished by more crit ical ability and will be more generally read. Still this is a crv able work and will bo a very valuable addition to the library of the historical student. The Life and Land of Ilurns' is another ex cellent work iust published. ningham's Life of the Poet, and sketches by, Thomas Campbell, of the various places immor talized by his songs with the masterly critical cay on his Genius and Works, by Thomas Carlvle. It was announced previous to its pub lication, that it would also contain the recently ruthless proscription of 1829, from the office of Post master of this city, will ho restored tothnt Post. The Post-olllcoatUaltnnoro, it issaid also, will be fdlcil by Mr. Thomas Fmlay of that city. Washiinotov, April 1. OosTiNiTn ASDRiinioi's or Ur.NtnAi. Har rison.

That of thc last year was ten per cent greater, and that of the present year, 1811, will bo still larger. All this is cxxlusivo of our immense mineral atul oilier productions. At a fair estimate, the an nual aggregate results of industry may be sot lown at twelve hundred miliums if dullnrs, ac cording to the present prices and measures r xalue. These curious statistics must give rise to the most orignal and important reflections, fifty years ago cotton was not produced to the value of S1,(KX) a vcar now it iscnual to 8111,000, ,000, by the census, and we arc persuaded that tins is below the average. The soil and clunatc of the United States, arc1 as well adapted to raise wine, silk, coffee, sugar, and sucli like articles as Italy or India, yet with the exception of sti jar, tlio other articles are in their infancy. Why is this 1 It arises from the fact that there is no comprehensive agricultural system yet organized in the county by which every article would bo raised in proportion to tlio demand. The great prices of flour in 1830, impelled toil much capital and labor into wheat growing the same mavbc said of corn and cotton hence the ruinous low prices in consequence of ovei production beyond the demand. Had the same labor and capital been judiciously distributed on the production of every article, wo might now be drinking American wine, and wearing Ainer tcan silks, as cheap in proportion as llotir is, Our agricultural system wants adjustment and equalization as much as the currency. The first process to reach such a result is to know .the fact of want of adjustment, aim this fact is leveloped in the censue, whicli ought to be the basis of agricultural action, sib well as legislative and financial action to the whole country.'

The steamers for some reasons. have a strange habit of coming into port, in justj such times as shall enable our pestilent news boys to cry their 'Extras' through the streets on Sunday. The news of most importance ex pected from aboard is concerning tho effect on American credit produced by intelligence of our third suspension. Great excitement was caused in tlio city yes torday by tho discovery of tho forgeries and slid don decampment of a Member of Congress. The Hon. Charles F. Mitchell, from tho Niagara District in this State, passed, both in Philadel phia and in this city, drafts to the amount of some. 93,000 purporting to be drawn by tho Bank of Albion on tho State Dank at Albany which on being presented for payment wore pronounced forgeries. Ho suddenly left his lodgings at the Astor House on Tuesday, ani nothing has beent heard of him since. Ho addressed a letter jus before his doparturcdo the editor of tho Cotiror, in which ho confesses some dreadful deed though lie does not say what it is, boasts of his talents and success in life and says ho has gone to a land where there arc many as bad as himself and a thousand fold better than them he has lefl behind. It is quite generally believed that this letter was designed to produce the impression that ho had gone to Texas, but that he actually took passage in the Caledonia for England. The Police have gone to Philadelphia in pursuit. Ik has never borne a good character for honest and fair dealing ; but has been quite notorious al Washington as a gambler, and in every place where he was known, as an unprincipled pohtt cian. He was a Merchant and Miller at Lock- port, and an applicant for the Navy Agency in this city. The opposition party hold a meeting at I am many Hall on Thursday evening to respond to the nomination of Mr. Morris for Mayor. It was not remarkably well attended, and was charac, tcriscd by the noisy and tumultuous display which is always exhibited at the gatherings of the' faithful in the 'old wigwam.' I saw several there so drunk that it was with the greatest difficulty they could bo kept within the bounds of even Tammany decency and order. B. F. Butler was one of the prominent speakers. Tho 'lion' of; the evening, however, was one who called him If a carman, an Irishman and a Catholic, but it. is said uy sonic wiio Knew mm, that 11c was neither of them, but one of these vagabond party tools, of whom the wire pullers make whatever, suits their convenience. In no public speech,1 on any occasion, or in any section of the country,1 have I ever heard such open profanity and bias phemous ribaldry as honoured forth amidtholong, and loud plaudits of tho assembled christian de mocracy. The Locos arc making very violent exertions to maintain their foothold in the city,' and from the almost entire apathy manifested by the administration, I fear they will be success-' ful. With a great portion of the opposition, the fact that a man is a burglar and an infamoti Judge, weighs not feather against him. 1 have. heard several intelligent members of that party, Those who accept this doctrine, and who bigin thcirl search for truth in tho spirit of it, gcncrolly hcconitl ardent admirers of I11111 and his writings. And if nnyl one is sceptical enough to hint to tlicm that cicn their dol may bo mistaken, and that some of his teachings are pulpably absurd nnd atheistic, ho is nwt at oneel !by tire charitable and conclusive assertion that hel does not ond cannot comprehend Mr.ll'.iiicrson.'

On Tuesday last he was in Wall street, and through some of his acquain- tauccs who coulidcu too much in his honor and honesty, obtained an introduction to several of tho Wall litrcet brokers. Tho object of this in troduction appeared to ho business-, anil very. soon we are told he passed upon his new acquain tances sundry drafts, purporting, as the Albany Evening Journal of last evening says, to have been drawn by Alexis Ward, President of the Hank of Orleans, on the New York Stato Jlank ,of Albany, for SPioO. On being prcr-cntcd there they were found to be forged, and to have been negociatcel bv New York brokers. The Irafts were all endorsed and made payable to the Hon. Charles F. Mitchell. They came back yesterday morning marked fnrg'rirs, and the 'guilt of .Mr. Mitchell was known almost as soon as he had made his escape from the city. This,1 however, is but one of the guilty transactions of the forger. Philadelphia as well as New Vork had been the scene of his criminality, and the same hour which brought to light evidence of his guilt in the one instance developed a bolder ex hibition of vilainy in tho other. Sundry other checks of the It mk of Orleans, drawn on the Mechanics Hank of this city, and endorsed by Mitchell, were also on being presented to the Bank yesterday morning marked forgeries. The amount of the several checks were for S2500. They had been sold in Philadelphia on Wed- ncsday to several of the city brokers, and there asnere, every tiling sccmcu to ue none in so plain and fair a manner that there was no room for suspicion. So well digested were these high handed transactions that they were carried on without exciting the suspicious of any one of the lofrauded parties. In regard to the checks on the Mechanics Bank, we are told that thev were signed by the Cashier, Mr. Edmonds, and endorsed as good. Mr. Edmonds, however is now in Europe. j ne loiiowing icier we ueneve was icit in tho chamber of the forger.

Chronic!?, Kill DAY MORNING, APRIL 9, I B 1 I.I THE PRESIDENT'S HEALTH. There is great anxiety pervading the public mind relative to the serious and continued ill ness of our venerable Chief Magistrate, ficneral HARRISON. The disease is said to bo a hi-1 lious pleurisy, caused by a severe cold, and con-! staut occupation and excitement. There was a! consultation of Physicians on the 1st instant, who pronounced his illness serious, but vet in- liilged in strong hopes of his recovery. The National Intelligencer of Friday, April '-'ml, Eays that on the evening previous, there was an evident improvement in the President's health. A letter published in the New York Times and Star of Saturday evening, dated at Washington, fl o'clock, A. M. of tho tid inst. says "The President is decidedly better." The letter was written bv a gentleman who left the Presidents House half an hour previous to writing. From the N. Y. Commercial of .Saturday. POSTSCRIPT. Klevev O'Cloik. Paim ci.

LKTTKRS FROM THF. METROPOLIS. NO. VII. New Yobk, April 3, 1611 For a fortnight past, with brief and occasional! exceptions, wc have been luxuriating in all the bright beauty and inspiriting freshness of the sweet Spring time. Our sky has become clear, the air balmy and refreshing, and the warm sun shine streams through the openings of the stone walls of this thick and heelged-up city, lighting the darkest alleys and most murky prison-holes and making the heart uf even the ragged, house less, friendless beggar beat with a quicker life and a feeling at least akin to happiness. Tl grass upon the Park and other public places has becomo green, the trees are building forth, and the very sight of them awakens in tho heart ol the pent. up, toil-worn laborer in this confined city.longing for the pure hcalth-brcating airs and Iho pleasant s'ghts of the country. Ono accus turned to its beauty and its glory, is half inclined to wish himself beside the bright lake and bo neath tho noble (Jrcen Mountains of your own Vekjiont: and yet, I doubt not, icy fetters still hold tho waters in thrall and vou arc tdiiverin in tempests and snowy whirlwinds which would do infinilo credit to the last days of midwinter, c havo riven up expecting tlie llritisli Queen immediately and aro looking for Euto- poan intelligence by way of Hoston, Tho Aca. umwasseivcrtiseii to leave Liverpool on the illtli intt., nnd she will prolnbly reach IJojton to-day! that they could not support him for any promin cut station. Hon. Daniel cbsler was in tho city on Wednesday, in consequence of the sickness of Mrs. Webster's father, Woman Lo Roy, Esq, lie remained, however, onlv a few hours, being imperatively called back to the seat of Govern ment by the pressing duties of his olliee. Mr. Le Hoy died on Thursd.iv. Ho has long been1 known as one of our prominent merchants- man of lino abilities, most gentlemanly inanncri-j and of the hiirhest integrity. Ho died at the good old age of eigliiy-four. The senseless, factious cries nf tho dcina gogucs in this state that New-York is bankrupt,' have been most efl'octually silenced by an able, lucid report made in the Senate by Mr. Ycr- tilanck. lie shews the actual debt ot the State to be -Sl l,f 0-"i,;i70 : and to balance this, she has, beside an amount of SWIO.OOO.OOO in real and personal estate, V. S. Depeisitc, school and lite rature Funds, to the amount of S(i,.-i:i,:il7: a canal revenue of nearly a million and a half. sufficient to pay an interest on a debt of 8- 000,000, and an income.' from salt works, auction duties, Stc. of 8:100,000. Ho proves that the talc may appropriate 81,000,000 annually to the prosecution of her works now in progress te tlieir completion, with a certainty of paying all accriiinir interest promptly out of the annual revenue. The committee in our Legislature appointed to consider the question, has reported against bridging the Hudson. The matter, however, hos been recommitted to the same committee. President I larrison has for somo elays past, as we learn from Washington, been seriously ill. flic letter writers in the morning papers of to day, represent him as still in a very critical situ atiou. It is hoped, however, that through the efforts of his physicians, and the excellent sound. nessof his constitution, he may be recovered. The prospectus uf a new daily paper lias been is sued. It is to bo callid the 'New Yobk Tmih'ne,' ,t,. voted to Publics, I.iierniure and General Intelligence, and and will be edited by Horace (irecley, of the New Yorker. The Hook trade was considerably revived within n few days. Resides ihc works I iiieuliuiti-d in my last several other very valuable and important publica tions have been issued. Among them is the 'History if .Society,' by W. Cooke Taylor, an English author if consideiahlc ability and reputation. It is a very tscful work, though in many respects superficial and mistaken in its view s, A now edition of Mrs. Austin's 'Characteristic of fioetho' has iust been brnnnln i in riiuauclphia. This is well known to llie literary public, having first been published in England as ear ly as 1B33. It consists of translations by Mrs. All un, of Memoir- and Recollections uf the illustrious German, by Folk, Van Mullen, an dsevcral other inti male friends and distinguislu-el scholars. I beleive this is the first American edition ever published. In my last letter I believe I cominilte-d the very stupid blunder of ascribing to Freelerick Van .Seblegel, the eclebnted work of bis brother Augustus, 'Lectures on Dramatic Literature.' Let this confession atone therefor. A volume of 'Essays' by Ralph Waldo Emerson, lias just been publshed in lloslon. Tins gentleman has made himself somewhat celebrateel by tho singu larity of bis writings, and lias ohtainej many enthu siastic and credulous followers. 1 hose who wnrslui him most devoutly, aro generally Ihoso who sic m his teachings sullicient ground lo conclude that there is no necessity for any religious he-hef, for litis seems to bo the sum and substance of bis doctrine. II makes all religion consist in a certain vague state uf thc feelings, abjures the necessity uf any creed what 'ever, no where recognizes the existence uf n personal God, and speaks of our .Savior with a patronising air which, lo a reverent mind, ebflers in nothing from blasphemous contempt.

The recent elections for tho new Parliament have furnished these impartial chroniclcrsvith an abundance of material of this kind without crossing the border for it. Tho elections for this new Parliament have caused morn riots and blood-shed than the elections in the United States for twenty years.

He grew witluts growth: acquiring wealth and distinction, until, yet in green old age, he voluntarily relircd from busurM with weabli and n spulless character, both of his own attainment. He has smec in the midst of his numer ous family soiiieiuups here1, sometimes at Marthficld with his daughter, Mr. Webster and lias at last paid ibe great debt here, vtherc Ins useful and honored life was passed, and where few, very few, of those who started with him in his career, remain to honor his grave. Their children, hnweter, and Iheir children's children, will fulfil that piniu. duty. The nn-i-nev nf public nfi'iirs compelled Mr. Webster to return, yes terday, to vv asliingtuu. A. J. Auirrireiii.

We elo not know with what motives the late Post -Vaster (lencral discontinued .Sunday .Mails, but vvo hope the same policy will be pur sued where it can be done without iniurv nr inconvenience tn the public interests. Tho Sabbath is a blessed institution. Its influences arc as important iu their bearings upon our polit ical ami social vveliare, as they arc in relicion and morals. Where Mails can be discontinued on Sunday w ithout injury to the public it should be done. Hut this object can only bo effected by reason and argument. Denunciation will accomplish nothing. Should ultraists again require the discontinuance of all .Mails on .Sun nay, they will arrest the work which has com. menced so auspiciously. Uvcning Journal.
