Wo deem it important also to advert to the fact, that, when a piece of wrought iron is broken by any sudden force, the fracture exhibits a coarse nranul.itioti resembling that nf cast iron, and wo would caution all against undertaking to pronounce opinions from tlio appearance of the fracture of the exploded gun. As lo the alleged want of specific gravity in the metal, we would stale that tlio specific grav- ity of wrought iron in such large pieces as the Stockton guns is not known ; and that therefore the known density of bar iron furnishes no crt terinn in the present instance.

It is known to most people In tills vicini ty tbat the keel of a new sttiam boat was put upon tlio slocks, at Whitehall, tbo foro part of last season ; but tbo real owner, nnd ulti mate destination of it, tiro us yet, unknown to the public. It was at f.rst supposed to be long to the "new company" afierwards charged lo iho "old company," as a back fire; nnd more recently, madam rumour has associated Peter Comstock with it. IS tit wo shall see what wo shall see. Tlio follow ing from tbo Whitehall Chronicle, is tlio only public notice of it wu have soon. Whitehall.

The boat is of the most approvi d model, nnd her mechanical execution, so far, is of the best order, extra care bavins been taken to secure Ihe most strength with the lea-t quantity of limber. We were informed, by Mr Collyir, tbat tlio scllhng of most boals, near iho macbineiy, Is Irmn the want of proper timbers in that quarter. This lioat is construc ted with thrco lines of limbers, running foro nnd nft, the whole length, and firmly lolled with nuts nnd screws to thebotloni and upright timbers. Tbo wilts nre matched into the upright pari", so that there is no possibility of sett'ing in (ho center. Tim length ol the Boat is 200 feel j breadth of beam 21 ft. nnd wheel 23 feel in diameter. The engine is being con structed in New Vorlt, with nil die recent improve ments, nnd is calculated to be one of the finest sncc'i- mensof work, extant. Ilercvhndcr is 37 inches nnd the stroke 10 feet. We wero permitted through the poli, cress of Mr Collver. lo examine the modtla beau tiful minaluroboat, nbout 9 feet long. Should she be nnistied. n near the model, as she is thus far, -he will be one of the finest boats in tbo American waters. The draft of water, with everything on board will not exceed 1 feet 10 inch. Who the Prnpiirtnrs nre, wc do not know, ncr do we care; but one thine is certain that she is n most beautiful specimen of architecture. It is not yet decided how she will run but the proba- uiuiy is inai sne win run lo riausuurgn ana uacn every day. t-nromcle. THE TARIFF THE TARIFF IN DANGER.

And when the ques tion arises "who shall we havens nn exponent of these principles V IlENnv Clay, of Kentucky, is Ihe spontaneous response which comes from the heart of every true Whiij. lie who served his country long nnd well, in her legislative- Halls, nnd has stood by her in limes of trial and of prosperity, ana hit been nn open nnd fearless ndvocato of the principles which influence the Whig party, is, truly, n fit expo nent of those principles. Although bis election, may not, like Gen. Harrison's, bo cl1.araclcri7.rd by that unbounded enthusiasm, which sometimes manifests it-clf in n good cause, nnd wlnck like a swollen moun tain torrent sweeps every ibina before it 1 yet I can not regard it ns less sure, (hough It may, perhaps, be more li ly likened to the no less irrcsislable but slower movement of the broad nnd deep stream. The reasons contained above nre 1 he reasons why I am a Whig. Simply, because I regard the Wing party as seeking the best interests of the country while the "Democratic" party is fctkingits emolu ments, nnd fur this purpose, is encouraging a spirit of libertinism, and a I reakingaway from all established usages nnd institutions, nnd might .villi much mora justness bo termed the Demagogue parly. I do nol pretend to say that every member of the Whig pertjr is nn honest mnn, nor that every member of the op posite parly is a dishonest man. Very far from it. Still, the motives and principles which distingui-h the two partus are prominent, nnd I consider it the duty of every christian nnd lover of his country to take a firm stand on tlio side of principle in opposition to Dctnagogucism nnd anarchy.
