One of our Yorkshire p.fsengcrs uai a plain milter tif fact unit, a cloth inniufjcturer, who was thoroughly versed in all tho mysteries of his calling, but who cared neither for literature, metaphysics, nor politics, savo and except that he was a gootl lory by inheriteiico. Uis man. tiers were so unpretending, Mr. Rindolpli sought occasions to converse with him, and he entered into all the uiinulite of his business, just as if bo had some inkling himself after the woolen trado. One day I was pretending to read, out was actually listening to the conver sation which pisred between these two, and I was quite amused by tho animation with ii hich Randolph carried tin the conversation. I should mention here, that Randolph's English ances. tors ucro from Yorkshire, and lie was giving tiiirl pi'r of information to Mr. D. for the first time. Ho the;, exclaimed, in a familiar, onto. neal style I' Well, sir, I say the 'West Riding' forever ! being Yorkshire on one side. I go tho York, shiro weavers agiinsttha world. TVi bo suro, sir, your poor operatives aro not half to well tiff as our Virginia slices ; but they aro ic.iiVf, sir, aivl bonce your p'tihnlhrnpists tin not feel bound in cnriRctonro lo Inol: into their misery ; hut that's oWr affair, not mine, sir.

In my ruth, er's family, sir, tho whole household was call- ed together; first mv mother ( God bless her ! put down aitstot tno article shu wanted from London: next, the children, according to their ages ; then the overseer, and finally tho do. inestic slaves ; our mammy at the head of them down to tne young ones who lived about the house not a singlo individual was omitted, sir. T'ton, after tho ship was gpnc, the weeks and days, and finally tho hour?, woro counted until sho returned, and tho joyful signal of bet arrival iu James river was celebrated as a jubi lee, sir.

In tho course of conversation, bo told mo that, in early life, ho had been influenced by tl.o infidelity which prcvaueu a noug many oi llio leading pohti cians in Washington ; an(J ua bfcruticism COn tiliued, with occasional doubtiugs. un to 1810. In that year, ho said, during a severe fit of sickness, tie nan a rcmariiatiio vision, which completely dispelled tho delusion under which lie Ind previously surrendered ins Milli, andev Last year it was 1G to 14 -showing a Whig gain of ten in our majority in that body. In tlm Houso tho whig strength is 120 to 90 Loco Fucos, so far ns heard from. The remaining towns will not cliango the result. Our majority will not bo less than forty in joint ballot. Last year it was but thirty- one. This result is much more favorable than wo anticipated from the general apa thy our friends on the east sido of the moun tain.

HON. HORACE EVERETT. Our readers will perceive, by referring td tho list of members elect of our next Gener al Assembly ,that llio Hon. HottAct! Everett is relumed from (ho town of Windsor. This is parlictilaily gratifying to us ns wt have no doubt it will bo to our political friends throughout tlio State. For the last fourteen ycnrs,ns our readers well recoiled, Mr. Evi:iiF.TT has been ;i member of tha lower House of Congress, and, by his faith ful devotion to the interests of his constitu ents and tho State, by his conspicuous abili ties in debate, and the accuracy of his infor mation on every subject which lie undertook' to discuss, ns well as by the moderation and courtesy with which ho treated his political opponents, nnd by the unsullied purity of his life, ho had acquired an influence in that body, towards the closo of his congressional career, which is seldom enjoyed by any ono of its members. Wo havo often heard Mr. Eveuctt named, by citizens of other states, as ono of tho safest and most useful mem-' bers of ihu House, nnd it should bo a subject" of just pride to Vermont that sho has fur nished a representative who has comman ded, in such an eminent degree, tho respect and codfnlence of his countrymen. During tho Tariff discussion of 1842, while tho" leading Loco Foco members from New York, Pennsylvania, and Virgtnni were do ing all in their power to tho inter ests of the Wool-gi oner, Mr. Evehett wat one of their most conspicuous and able de fenders. Wo wen! nn eye witness to his faithful services on that occasion. Wo saw him will) pridu and pleasure standing tip; at tlio head of our delegation, to repel the fran tic assaults of the Loco Fucos upon the in terests of tlio producing classes. Our col umns nt the time boro abundant testimony to tho zenl and efficiency of his labors, and it is gratifying to us to have another opportu nity to express our sense of their valuo and importance.

Tho dwelling house of Hon William A. Griswold was discovered to bo on fire about ten o'clock on nionday evening last. Hut by tho prompt interferanco of tho Boxer Engine Company, llio flames wero speedily extinguished. Tins Engine has been particularly successful 111 protecting our buildings from lire since its purchase last summer. At tlio time Howards Hotel took fire,it unquestionably saved property to tnoro than ten fold its value. The building was old and dry, nnd, at tho time of the fire, tho wind was blowing strongly from the South? west, so that tho entire block, from ihe Bank on St. Paul street, to I'.ugar tfc Arthur's on Chin cli slrec', miis in tin- most imminent danger. But though the flaincs had broken through tho roof antl iveiti raging with great fury at the time the Boxer came up, they wero completely extinguished, lilterally drownrd out, in fifteen minutes time, by the immense torrents of water poured on them by this poweiful Engine. It is certainly tho most successful " fire quencher" we havo over seen. It was constructed by W. C.. Huntieman & Co. of Boston a new principle, nnd it certainly works with admir able ease, efficiency, and power. 07 George P.

Y. gavo two concerts in this place on Monday and Tuesday evenings of litis week. They were both well attended, andtll who were present wero charmed with iho un surpassed excellence of the performances. Wo were intending to writo a more exten ded notice of them but haveboon antici pated by the author of tlio following Communication. Mn. Editor : On Monday and Tuesday evenings last, we attended with ihu greatest pleasure, two concerts given in this town by Mr. J. C. Andrews, and his daughters, th Misses Juno A. and Harriet S. Aud.rews, of Troy, N. V, Wo claim Mr. Editor to have somo littla knowledgo of Music, having as wo believe. learnt otir 'ganimet mid our alphabet on tho same day!! Also, having had at various times, the good fortune to hear tho first ar tists, that wiihin (ho last fow years have graced our country by'their presence,weCon--slder "ourselves in some measuro competent pass ota opinion as lo tho merits of the An drews', which may go with thoso who heard lliein for what it is worth. To begin then with Mr. Androws. His violin fairly, completely, rivetted our atten tion lu tho music, and had Cleopatra, queen of Egypt, been at our sido in all her histor ic charms, ready fur one moments attention to bestow them upon us, wo could not have granted it! His performance upon a single string, of ono of Signor Nagel's pieces, wa remarkably fine, nnd in another, his harmo nics were, what is rarely llio caso, perfectly clear and true. Of course flaicrv llntT la not our object, and wo can only say to Mr. Andrews, go on until you rival that great Master, than whom, thero is now living but few superior to him. Miss Harriet next camo upon tho boards, and sang a very pretty song. IJor voice is good and her whole air, and manner, charm ing. But it shows sho is still very young, und also that in a fuiv years, under the ex cellent tuition of her father, an important change for tlio better will lake place. Yet o-en now it is a groat treat to hear her. More particularly il is our object to speak 01 tno eiuesi iiungnter, IMissJano A. Now that I'cnitilo singing, fur beyond any otrnti i
