mm WBB3S8 couuespondence of the express. Wasiiixotnn, April 29. Curious tlcvoloponuints arc daily coming to light, anil niion some our Loco Toco friends and follow citizens will have reasons ns plenty as blaeberries for being turned out of office. If all rumors be true, there never was more of an augoan stable than the Now York Custom House. I have just beard of the caso of the Inspector and Deputy Col lector at Albany, who lias not been called upon to settle up his account, though ho lias been in office since 1S38, nor has ho paid over a dollar of his fees or emoluments ! Mis returns, it is added, iiro regular enough and exhibit about S3000 in fees received by him, though there never has been any accounts between him and the Collector. Tho fault is mi ovcright in office in omitting quarterly settlements, which bring tho way they have been done there, yon sco the propriety now and then of changing at least some one man in office. Mr. Van Huron and his administration, it appears, kept up his and its character to tho very end. Not only were Judges and Con Fills made in the last hour of .March 3d, be fore the breath was fairly out of the body of ono whose vacancy was to bo filled, but even midshipmen and cadets were politically well attended to. Not only were all vacancies filled, but they shot beyond their term, so ns to fill up places to be, a year ahead, at least as to the cadets I This was pushing spoils with a high hand, and yet the sweet innocents of tho Globe and Post growl, be cause we won't let them keep all, as well as steal all, of the places ahead I A new I'ost Master his been made in Bos, ton, in placo of Mr. Greene, find Mr. Gor iion has taken tho place. It is an appoint ment which will give general satisfaction, for nn excellent man this Mr. Gordon is. Mr, Greene has been a good I'ost Master too but that doctrino of rotation, ho has so often preached, must turn him out, he having had tho office, some eleven years or more, am like nn honest fellow ho must admit, others should have their turns and "Equal llights Tim Secretaries and I'ost Master General havo most laborious duties, and are the har dest working-men in the country.

Mr, to the Theatre, and must Imvo tho knife.- After much parleying, he finally obtained it, went to tho Theatre, and staid till a late hour. There, it is nresuinoil. ho r?ot excited with li quor, for upon his rotuin Tie was unusually tioisiuieieis aim ugly, uu wune iu enu nuusu u, Mr. Carlton, a respectable citizen of ltichtnond street, whore ho was known, and insulted his wife by Ins gross conduct and language, hue attempted to call sonic person to her aid, when Emmons seized her round her waist, and threw her down upon the lloor. One of the children ran out, and called the first person that happened to bo near Mr. (J. Hoed, the injured uan. lie came in immediate lV( and succeeded in preventing Ijiniiions fioin effecting his fiendish purpose. Lnmions became exceedingly voilcnt and abu sive, and following Mr. Rood into the strcct,sci zed him by the shoulder, and a scuffle ensued, during which Emmons drew his Howio knife, and stabbed the unfortunate man in tho bowels, literally cutting him open, from bide to rule, so that the greater portion of his intestinos fell out ! It was but a few steps to his boarding houso (Mr. Heed's, in Ann Btreot,) and by placing his arms across his bowels, he succeeded in reach in" that place before bo fell. lie was immediately placed on a bed, and physicians called in. This was about 12 o'clock midnight, and from that time to this S o'clock, A. M be has been, as it were, in tho nirntiics of death, and no hopes whatever aro entertained ol his recovery. Emmons was arrested soon after the affray by the watchmen, and committed. Tho Bovvio knilc was found in his possession, dyed in blood, and is now m possession ol Coroner Pratt. It is one of llic most ugly looking instruments of the kind wo have seen. Mr. ftccd is a very nuict, ordcrlv, respectable young nnn, anatic of Itoston, universally cs- tcccmcu by all who knew hun, and thero is pr in inly no mm better known in tho neigh borhood where lie belong''. I his atlair has created a very painful sensation at tho Noith ISml. When we went down there, this mornimj, to obtain these particulars, wo saw several rough, iron-featured men, standing about the door of the house, where the pour follow lay, within hearing of his groans, with their eyes bathed in tears, and hearts too full for utterance a tight seldom witnessed. Emmons will no doubt be brought before the Police Court, this forenoon, for examination. When we left tho plaro where t ho all'ray occurred the officers had gone in pursuit of his companion (Iho l'rnvinrrtown man,) whom they intend to retain as a witness. He ed is sinoo dead, and Emmons has been committed to take his trial on tho twelfth in stant. nle is tho fact, that when C.'apt. Drinker left, not ono of tho packages containing Iho presents to the Sultan bad bcun opened. 71ic opening was postponed from tuna to time Jor nearly iwo monthF, and perhaps they havo not boon exam ined to this day.

FAUNTLF.ItOV WHO WAS HANGED FOR FORGERY ALIVE. It may seem strange, but no less true, that there are strongopinions abroad that Fauntlcroy, the banker who was several years ago convicted of and hanged for forgery, is how living with his sou in America. So strung arc the opinions on that point, that about nine months past his exec utors, in an answer to a bill of equity, filed against them respecting his property, put in an affidavit praying time to inquire after him, as from report and hearsay, they believed he was yet alive. It appears tint the proprietor ot a largo hotel in iviarylubonc, whose name was I'carsc, mod child less, bequeathing his properly to his nephews, and appointing Fauntleroy his executor. The nephews, who were wild young men, wero at tl.o period of their uncle's death, either in tho army or navy. The friends of the nephews, mis trusting Fa'untlcrov, insisted upon his vesting the money loft by tho uncle in the funds. This Fauntleroy did : but afterwards sold it out with the exception of XMO. After his suppcd exe cution one of the nephews returned, anJ having been informed that a legacy had been bequeath him instituted proceedings against Fauntleroy's oxecutnrsto account for that property. A bill was consequently filed agi.inst them in the Vice Chancellor's Court, and tho executors in rcply,statcd their belief that Fauntleroy was not hinged to death but that he was alive, living with his son in America. Having an affidavit to that effect, the Court granted nino months to make the necessary inquiries. Tho nine months will terminate next term. It is said most confidently that F.iuntlory had a protection around his neck against the rope , that he was suspended but for a very short pe riod, and that as soon as ho was cut down he was immediately conveyed to a house in West Smi'.hiield, whore tho necessary restoratives were immediately and successfully applied. All this, it is supposed, was done with the privily of the Government and tho officers of justice. Ho the report well-founded or not, tho affidavit was made, and the time alluded to was granted for instituting tho necessary inquiries respecting the existence or non-existence of a vvratched man, around whoso neck, it is said, tho rope virtually was for 1 1 years previous to his con viction," as ho was a forger for that period. fl'Ins is a hlrange storv. Fauntleroy may bo alic, but we saw him executed, and saw him hanging for some time. If the answer to the bill bo not put in till Pauntlcrov bo found alive, we fear tho delay will bo longer than even a Chancery suit.J .Morning paper.J JEWISH PASSOVER.

Ono would suppose, in those times, that our Locofoco brethren of the typo had their organs of benevolence greatly excited. Contrary to their formerly professed doctrine, that to tho victors belong the spoils they insist that the vanquished should retain them. " Lamentations hero and elsewhere" daily bewail the cruelty and inhumanity of divesting Mr. Van Huron's partiziiH of thoiie places which they have so long monopolized. That sanguinary spirit which once tolerated no want of conformity in opinion with the party, is now tamed down. Tho Globe and its affiliated satellites, which once exulted in the cries of a siilibnng people, and responded to their complaints, "there is no pressure which an honest man ought to regret," are now thud ding tears over tho fato of those men who have been tho instruments by which a wicked admin istration tormented and oppres-ed the people. They who have aided to inflict wretchedness and poveity on thousands to snatch bread from the mouths of the industrious and enterprising they whoso efforts have assisted to bring grief ami misery to the firesides of the merchant, tho manufacturer and tho mechanic who asked nothingof government but to be let alone they these heartless parasites of tyranny, now say to these very beggared and ruined men, upon whose calamities they hao coldly smiled, that thev must stand aside, that it will ho jtrnscrii'tiim for them to take the places of the authors of their dislres-e11. For oui selves wo say, that wo are gratified by the misfortunes of no man misery and des titution excite our sympathy whoeu'r they af tbet among our fellow-creatures. Hut bad gov ernmen', the premeditated wickedness of bad men in tioer, lias filled the counliy with mour ning and misery. Thousands hac felt the cruel pinch of poverty, who never dreamed of want, before th'.- destructive reign of locofoco;m. Thousands of such worthy, honest, patriotic men, who wo ild but a few years since, have spurned the gift of office, aro huw compelled by dire necetsity to ask the boon of being permit ted to enter the service of tho country. These meniaieAe',n the victims, but never the vassals nf power. Let it bo granted, then, that Mr. Van Huron's partisans now in office aro equally ncedv w hoslnll bo preferred ! The poor man who haw upheld tho guilty rule of our opponents defended their pernicious measures, and used the patronage of their offices to retain in power the wrong doer 1 Or should we not rather pre fer that poor man made porr by tho evil coun cils of Van IJurenism struck down by the blow which has prostrated the whole country that poor man, who, although prostrated, had the hon cstv and tho courage to icsist the oppressor, and whoso bold front and unbought vote have assist cd to free the countrv from the misrule of our opponents. Certainly, justice, as well anaihs criminating humanity, would both ,p-cfor tho poor and honest whig to the iioor but guilty loco- loco.

An affray took placo in Richmond-street, in tluK ritv.last uight.w hich resulted in the stabbing and probable death of a young man, named CiMtiLCs Ucnn, a hack-driver in tho employment of Mr. John Wright, in Ann-street, iiio cir cumstances of the caso are these : a Southern bully named William Emvo.vs, came to this city several w eeks sinctvin compa ny with a native of l'rovincelown, Ms., bringing among other emblems of Southern life, a large Howie knife, with a broad, sharp-pointed blade, more than one foot in length. This ho llourish. cd about, extensively, boasted much nf his feats M vnlnrnerforincdat the South, and Ihiealened to exercise his deadly instrument upon soiuo of our cool-bloodeu iNortiieriiers, suouiu occasion present. I lii friend and companion from Province mvn. induced him to give up tho knife, and for omo timo succeeded in keeping it out of h.s way, although ropeatcuiy buiiouuu m iu f.irri ! Jist I'vcntng, Emmons taid he was going l'uhl, slept with .Mr. Haker, and on entering the store at another door, probably at a different hour, was shot through the head, and shocking ly mangled with a Itovviu knife. Tho robbers then apparently rilled the store and set Ihc to it. On bursting open the door, the bleeding corpse of Mr. Weaver was found, but the body of .1r. Haker was totally consumed. His hat and handkerchief were found, covered with blood, from which it is presumed ho too was shot. The store was a valuable building, estimated to bo worth from thirty to forty thousand dollars, with a stock of groceiics worth forty thousand dollar and Collier &. l'ottis had fitly thousand dollars in their iron safe this was still red hot, when the Hrazil left.and it could not be ascertain ed if tho money had been stolen. The City Council promptly mot, and offered live thousand dollars rovvaul "for the murderers, and Mr. Collier has also olleicd to give the lot on which the si, r stood, worth 'JO t'lousand dol lars, for the same purpose. Cincinnati Hejntb. lican, CIRCL'MSTATIAL EVIDENCE. A melancholy instance of the uncertainty of circumstantial evidence occurred at Gibraltar, last February. A wealthy English merchant of that place, na mcd .lamca Jinx well, was convicted, upon that kind of testimony, of the murder of his own daughter. On proceeding to the placo of exe cution, he recognized an Englishman named John Keats, who had been active in procuring ins conviction, whom he lorgave tor his hostility as he desired tod.o in peace with all the world. Koals seemed much aflected by this, and just as the .sentence nf the law was about to be execu ted, cried out, " It is I that am guilty, and not the convict." A great sensation was produtod by this oxclauiatku, when Keats came forward aiid fully confessed his guilt. Tho rojio was im mediately taken Irom tho neck of Ins victim, ami the cap from his face, but it was all to late. I he wretched lather was a corpse having d.ed' of grief and terror ! Keats was taken to jail amidst the evecrations of the multitude, who weic Willi dithculty restrained from tearing him to pieces:. I'rom the New Voik Courier nnd Enquirer. ARIUVALOUT OFTIIE SULTANEE.

Drinker on the poop deck, and otlermg to show him all the lions on the Island in return for his attention in America, when Iho Captain was called below. In a few moments Jima walked to tho side of the ship, gave a groan, then fell over the ships' sido and was never seen torise It was supposed that ho was seized with a lit. Ho was a very intelligent young man, studious, shrewd, and obtcrvin", and one of the mot ambitious and promising officers in the Sultan's sorvico. Ho acquired the English language to a considerable extent whilo in this country, anil kept a journal into which ho copied all tho articles that appeared in the newspapers in rotation to the ship or to any sub. jectof interest, as well as his own observations on men and manners. Tho crew of the Sul. taneo was mado up of common slaves purchased ata fewdollara per head. Capt. Drinker is of opinion that the Sultan will not at present send another ship to this country, as the result of this voyage has in a commercial point of view pioved unfortunate, and such is the want of energy among tho Arabs, that three years claps, edbclorc the Sultanoe was ready for sea aftci the project of the first voyage was broached A pruiifoi tho apathetic ind.flvruiice of these poo. This festival in the Hebrew church com menced on tho -4 lit inst. corresponding to the 14lh of the ancient mouth Nisan, when tho Jewish I'assovor or feast of unleavened bread began. During tho period of ono week the synagogues in tins city were opened, and this least, which is regularly and rigidly ob served bv tho Jews thro 'out the world, was celebrated. 1 he unleavened bread is made of tho finest wheat and is baked in thin cakes. In taste and appearanco they very much resemble common crackers. Tho exercises in the Synagogues nro usually conducted in Hebrew. Every member has a light sash thrown over his shoulders, and responses from the audience are constantly mado as in the Episcopal churjlt. They sit covered, and no particular order is observed about en tering or leaving the room whenever the au ditor chooses. The exercises are recited in a chauntiiig tone, while the audience sit or stand as suits their fancy. The sexes are separated, the females occupying tho galle ries, and tho males thu lower portion of the Synagogue. The peculiar features and comnlexioii which mark tho decondants of Abraham the world over, and which tend to I luo": keep up the distinctive characteristics of the race, are visiblu to the most .superficial ob server.

THE DURLIGTON FEMALE SEMINARY. It gives us pleasure to inform the public that the Burlington Female Seminary will open its spring term under new and favorable auspicep. Of all the places in tho union there is perhaps none better fitted for a similar establishment than Burlington. The climate is heathy and do- ligthful, tho opportunities for learning aro equal to the best in the United States, and the situation of the village is unrivalled by nny other in the natural beauty of its situation. This seems to have been long felt by the people near and abroad, since from its firit opening until now the institution has met with so much oncouragement that the size of the Seminary building has but poorly corresponded with the number of appli cations ; on this point everything is right now : the largo and magnificent building till now oc cupied by the Rt. Rev'd. Bishop Hopkins and pursposoly constructed by that gentleman for tho purposes of education, is now leased to the Se minary and ready for the reception and accom modation of hundreds of ladies. bile we sincerely regret the loss of Miss Green, who for a number of years his so t.bly conducted tho government of the Seminary, wo fool never theloss compensated for her departure, in as much as her successor (.Miss Lee) is the person of her own choice, and wo are therefore confident that she possesses all the qualifications requisite forsuch an important post. Miss Lee has been one of the leading Instructresses in the Troy Seminary for tho last fifteen years, and has ac quired tho peculiar tact which mikes tho gov ernment and discipline of a Female Seminary useful and agreeable. W'o aro happy to hear that Mr. Molt continues to bo engaged in the musical department, and we feel therefore con fident in saying that this important branch of female education will be conducted on a plan in ferior to none in the country. Mr. Moll has re ceiveda regular musical education in Germany, and has since his residence in Burlington esta blished a bight and undisputed reputation anion; the first artists of tho United States. Beside these advantages, when it is taken into consi deration that -Mr. Braman is to remain in tl.e bourdmg establishment, we may well assure tl c young Ladies that nothing will be wanting on his part to make them comfortable. The next term of the above Institution w ill commence on Monday, -May 51 lth. The Semina ry will be conducted, in the main, upon the system, which has rendered it so respectable and useful, while under the care of the late accom plished superintendant. Additional instructors and increased facilities for the acquisition of tho vearious branches of solid &. elegant knowledge, will be furnished, and the friends of the institu tion confidently believe, that its general advan tages will not be inferior to those of any Female Seminary in New England. Nhxv'-YohK, May 1st. Hll. The past week with us has been as dull as a Dutch commentary on Shakespeare. I am enal led therefore to present you a rare treat, viz : a snort letter. In po'itics, to speak in tho language of the market, notb ing is doing. 0.,r citizens aro anxiously awaiting tin approaching sesssion of Congress, and but little of general intirestis expected until then.

Ilia Inaujural Address wa so explicit, so direct, and to republican, that even party malice can discover no astoundini hercsv in it, and their favorito cry of abo- ilion, is most effectually silenced. They have no resource but to vent their malice by nbus of ihe dead, and by battling windmills of their uwncieanon.

This was their argument then to justify removals. There was no plausible pretence at that time that the men in office, under the General Government, had prostituted their places to partizan purposes, or improperly interfered with tho freedom of elec tions. 7b be cure Gen. Jackson darkly alluded to abuses of this kind, but tho whole country knew that no such abuses existed. At lcat no man bad thou been appointed, as most officers hive been since, by him and Mr. Van Huron, chiefly for their qualifications in electioneering. 7'he men in office, when tlen. Jackson came in, were men who had been appointed by Jefferson and Madison. Monroe made nn removals but to fill vacancies, or for official misdemeanor, neith er did J. Q. Adams. The partisans of Jackson therefore uphold the doctrine of "rotation in office," to justify them in turning out the officers appointed by the old Republican administrations of Jefferson, Madison, &c. 7'hey asked if men were to hold office as a life estate ; if wo were to have a privileged class ; and they urged the necessity of occasional changes, not only to pre The I'residmt and hi f.imilyKcrcption of the Diplomatic Cjrps Order of business at the H'Aife Ihusc'Vhe I'roscriptire Clatror The Sicrita rtts.
