SI 3 amis Mhmias . From tht Boston Daily Advertiser. OGDKNSBURGH KAIL ROAD. Opposite lh termination of ihii Rail Road it Og li inburgli, weat of the 81, Lawrence, apreadi out the ncn province 01 vanaaa west, wun a (oil uniun p.nsod in richneaa by the aame eitent of territory in V nerics, With population rapidly Inerea-ina in umbers and improving in character, with a healthy i ll nate and ( atable government, thie province bids 1 1 r in a few yean to he one of the beat agricultural di.triela of the whole British empire. Ten yeara ago it contained a population of 320,000. The total amount of properly at that time waa 157,000,000, and the annual product! were orcr WO.OOO.OOO. The value of ftood imported into both provincca in 1836, aa over 913,000,000. Since that time there hae been n very great increaae of population and business. Aa the population of the Eastern province waa larger than tha Western at that time, it ia fair to supposo that aba retained a proportionate amount of the im ports, the balance being forwarded weat by the St. Lawrence and the canals. There must have been at least 15,000,000 wolth of British and Irish produce :nd manufactures and foreign and colonial merchan dise aent to Canada West through the St. Lawrence and the Canada Canals in the year 1835, and Iho amount haa probably doubled aince that time. Now if all this valuable property could, tinder our recent Act of Coneres, be forwarded through the States, it would afford to our works of internal im provement an immense business. But this whole transportation we can never get, and whoever sub scribes for rail road slock with that expectation, will find himself egregiously deceived. The eipottsfrom Canada, if not so valuaMe, are more bulky than the imporia, the principal articlea ars lumber in all its ahspca, as oars, staves, timber, boards, deals, plank, handspikes, Ate, wheat, flour, pot and pearl aahes, beef, pork, and furs. All these articlea except the last are bulky. But few, if any of them, are ready to be shipped before the summer navigation has com-jnevtoca,- nor are any of them of a character that re quire to be enrlv oreaaed into the destined market. The course of bu-iness is so well defined, that il wouM probably be an injury rather than a benefit to send them forward before the usual season, even if they were ready to proceed. The navigation, then, being good through the St. Lawrence from Quebec, when their exports are ready to be shipped, it i- per fectly evident that all of them would go by water through that channel, instead of being forwarded through the States by rail roid. There would be an immense loss by forwarding by the latter mode, and if it could be done cheaper, the British government would never allow of such an interference with their commerce. Now there arc actually employed in the summer months in carrying the exports from Que bec and Montreal, about fifteen hundred sail of mer chantmen. These vessels go out about the middle of May from England, and continue in the carrying trade until the river ia closed by ice in the autumn. Theae vessels must go to Canada to get her exports, and they may as well lake merchandise with them aa go in ballait. In practice it would be so. The great bulk of goods would be sent to Canada in the ships which go from England to bring home the productsof that country. But there would be many exceptions to this general rule. The light articles of trade, and the most valuable dry eoods, and all goods that were desired for immediate sale would be forwarded by the the quickest route, even if more expensive. Such ar ticles would come to the Statea had we rail roads to forward them without delay. Such would he the course of the Summer trade be twoen Canada and the mother country. But the Winter at Quelec and Montreal mcludea more than half the year, and after Winter has broken, floating ice obstructs the navigation. In th Wc-tern prov ince the Winter is shorter by two months than in the Ea-tern. Long before vessels arrive at Quebec, the ice disappears from the takes, and navigation ia free it Ogdensburgh. It would be greatly for the interest of the Canadians to have a communication with the Atlantic during this season of embargo. If a rail road ahould be established either from Boston or Portland to Montreal, it would be of great utility to that place by opening a daily communication with the ea board, giving them the full enjoyment of the ben efits to he derived from the Cunatd steamers, and en abling the merchants there to make early Spring im portations from England. But a rail road to Mon treal alone, would, in these respects, be of little or no use to the Western province. Toronto ia nearly 400 miles Southwest of Montreal, and Kingston is nearly 200 miles distant. No gooda imported by the mer chants of Montreal tor Spring use could be forwarded to the upper province, because both canals and roads would be impassable, the mail would be about as long in getting into the West aa it now is, and the in habitant! of that nrovince. would haVR no mnnninn whatever with the Atlantic, but be equally i-olated as at present. Whether the prospect of carrying the mail to Montreal, and forwarding Winter and Spring I I L - . I ' 1 . I i , 8uuu, biiu sucn umcr aniuies as ine aemanas 01 tne ummer trade require should be aent with expedition, and with the further nro-oeet of a aharn with roada between Boston and the rame point for the same holiness, will be sufficiently promising loinduce vaimaiisia iu cuiiiiruvi hid ii'hu irum roniann, lime will determine. It certainly is not to be expected tha t the business men of Boston will enter into any such uncertainties, while an opportunity ia offered al home of advancing their own interest and promoting the public good, without hazard to either. Aa tha lake waters are open much earlier than the St. Lawrence below Ogdeiisburgh, goods sent to that point could be immediately forwarded to all the nrin- cioal towns in Canada Weat. and would be received hv the traders in all parts of that province sixty day's earner man ai present. Ann it ia clear mat tne trans portation would be very great, and of much more va. ua than the transDortatton to Montreal onlv. A rail road direct to Montreal would not get the Western Canada trade, for goods destined for that country would, if the Ogdensburgh mad was not made, be shipned by the Oswego Canal which is open three weens earner man tnose in uanada. uut tne Ug densburgh road, when completed, would take every pound of merchandise forwarded from England through the Slates to Canada West. This is not all. Montreal and the Eastern province is connected with Burlington, In Vermont, by Lake Champlain and the La Prairie nil road. While that lake ia open Boston would have a steam communication direct with both Drovincea. and when the lake ia rloim!. tha ir rr. nishes the best of sleighing over the short distance that separates Burlington from St. Johns, where the La Prairie rail road commences. The business of the Ogdensburgh rail road cannot but be immense. No road has ever been proposed to our citizens that presented a fairer prospect of com plete auccess and usefulness. lis business will be de rived from various sources, and if one should fail, the others will be sufficient to insure its prosperity. The nets statea prove mat it would 1st, Have a large local buainess. 2d, Obtain fair prooortion of Western trade. 3d, Be the avenue for travellers bound to the Lakes, to Canada and to the Western country. 4th Have a very large carrying trade to Canada Weal. 5th, Be an essential benefit to the country between noston ana i.aKe unampiain, especially to Lowell, Mancheater.

The Editor of the Portland Daily Advertiser in a lornr article in his naner of Friday, amines himipir hv quoting from the writer's first article and applying the argument to their proposed road to Montreal. The writer ia aomewhat at a loss to understand whether that editorial waa intended aa a ridicule of the Port laud project, or aa an argument in its favor. Il con tains one objection to the O.'densburgh road, howev er, wnicn aeserves notice, lie says " There is ihe natural and insuperable difficulty not auuoea iooy ine wrner neiore us. mat am design tn volves Ihe crotsine of Lake Chamnlatn. bv a navl cation of not less than twenty miltt distance. Now to talk of a Rail Ruad 320 miles long, with a lake twenty mites wide lying across it, while it can never cross the Ihe lake, and that lake in latitude 44 and consequently frozen in winter, is to talk of a Rail Koaa wun a great a serious gap in Ihe midtlle ol it, and one which the on? travel and especially thuloni transportation, requiring an extra transhipment will not very pleasantly nor very cheaply get over. We ball make amooih work in the Duville Natch, long before Boston will obliterate Lake Champlain." Between Burlington and Plattabnreh there isalarge island containing! township of land. Thisislsndis connected with the Burlington side of the lake bv a solid aand bsr, over which horses and carriages pass ami repass during the summer, the water being but a few inches deep. The Burlington Rail Boad will he continued over this sand bar and across Ihe island to iik West aide to a print opposite Cumberland Head, a projection of Isnd from Pittsburgh. The distance front the termination of Ihe Burlington Rail Road to Cumberland Head ia three milea only. The channel ia deep, and the water smooth, being protected from lh' winds on three sides by land. In the summer these three miles must ft ferried, and in the winter be crossed on the ice. There are not three daya in the year all together, when this point cannot be conveni ently passed in one mode or theolher. It ia about Ihe same distance aa the ferry at Havre de Orace on the route to Baltimore, but as there is no current in the lake it will be easier passed. There will be less ob struction here than on the Western Rail Road at Al hanv. aa the Hudson is rapid, ia affected by the floods. and obstructed by floating ice. It will not be a more troublesome ferry than that of the Eastern Rail Road at East Boston, or Ihe one connecting the Providence road with the Stonington. Having tbua "obliterated" steenfsen miles of Lake Champlain, we propose to leave the remaining three until the editor of Ihe Portland Advertiser hss made some progreu in smoothing Oixville Notch." We cannot, boweyer, refrain from mentioning to that ed itor that the proposed Rail Road from Portland to Mentreal terminates on the south bank of Ihe St. Lawrence, which ii crossed by a ferry "ins milea wide, and la probably ihe very worat on ihe American .continent, lh channel being narrow ind crooked, the river being very rapid, ana navigation Being so dan gerous that the present ferry boats never run after Hark, while in tie winter, owing 10 the rapids and rocks, the river is. never smooth, and tha floating iee coinc uowu in great mawes, ana pucs up in mag ntflccnt mountains. We leave this ferry to be " ob literated" byouf friend of tha Portland Advertiser. If my of the people in Portland suppose that this road ia destined to take the Weslern produce to the Atlantic, perhaps the following will dispel tuch delu- Coat of trinsportation of I barrel of flour from Cleveland to Portland, via proposed Rail Road ftom Montreal to Portland.

As it will co-t 72 cents to forward a bar rel of flour by Ogdensburgh to Boston, and 1 via Montreal to Portland, it is not eery probable that the trade will go that wav. The difference of expense between sending 500,000 barrels of flour by Ogdens burgh to Boston, and by Montreal to Portland, would be one hundrtd and tttenty thousand dollars in favor of the Ogdcneburgh route, and a great patt of Ihe flour in Portland must be shipped to Boston or to aome other market. T, P. C. FOURTEEN DAYS LATER FROM EUROPE. By the arrival of the steamship Caledonia, at Boston, we have papcra from Liverpool to the 4th of June, and London dates tn the 3d. The bill fur the grant to the Roman Catholic College ol Maynnoth, received ita final passage in the House of Commons, after a renewed de bate of three daya on the night of May 21. On taking the question, after the final debate, in which Sir Robert IVel made a long speech, the amendment was rejected by a vote of 184 to 317, being a majority for the hill of 133 votea. The bill waa then read tne third time and passed. t ho bill cams on tor aenate in tne House ol Lords on the second reading, Juno 3. The Duke of Wellington made a long speech in fa vor of it on the ground of the necessity and pro priety of promoting the education of the Catho lic Clergy, ami of the expediency of pacifying Ireland. It was opposed by the Earl of Rodcn. and the Uishnp of London. I he debate was then adjourned. The bill for the endowment of Academical In stitutions in Ireland, was debated on several nights in the House of Commons, and June 2, it was ordered to a second reading by a vote of mi to 4U. Mr. Power's statue of Ihe Greek Slave had been exhibited for some days in London and had attracted much notice. The papers speak of the work with reluctant praise, and they de scribe the artist as an American " who studied under Thortvaldsen." This mistake was cor rccted in the Times, by a fellow countrymen who slates that rower never saw I liorwald sen, until tbe latter visited him at his studio at Florence, where he formed so high an opinion of him that he remarked of him, according to Mrs. Trollop?, that "his birth would form an era in the art." Wo learn from a private cor respondent that the success of this work of rowers has been most triumphant. It lias been visited by every body, from the Prince down. and the most enthusiastic compliments were continually paid tn the artist. Spain.

We copy the treaty at length. It will be observed that its leading features resemble those of the article on this subject in the lale treaty with this cuun'ry. Ihe arrival of tha llihernia, put at reat the uneasiness which had prevailed for some tiiiie past relative to ihe relations with America. All apprehension of a hostile collision arising out of the Oregon question had disappeared. This is mainly attributed tn what the Times is gracious ly pleased to call the unproved tone ot the American press. Il pave a high compliment to the peace voice of the Union.

By the arrival of the steamship McKIm, Can- tain Phillips, we have Galveston datea to the 28th and Houston to the 37th May, inclusive. We give the more importent intelligence. The united States squadron naa sanea irom Galveston. The new sloop-of-war St. Marys, reported to be one of the fastest eailera nthe American navv, waa dispatched on the evening of the 24th May for Vera Cruz, by Com. Stocks ton. The other vessels comprising the squad ron the Princeton, Saratoga and brig Porpoise, sailed on a cruise down the Gulf on the 27th, three dava after ; and we believe it if Com. Stockton's intention to look in at Carpus Chris tl, Brazos Santiago, and perhaps other points on the coast. The Hon. C. A. Wickliffe, late U. 8. Postmaster General, tailed on board the Princeton, and the fleet was expected to return to Galveston in the courso of 10 days. rhe following extract we copy from the Hous ton Star, of the 24th May. The editor, after mentioning a previous rumor that Mexican troops were concentrating at San Luis Potosi, goes on to say : " Within a few days we have received intel ligence from a respectable Bourse that these troops have approached the Rio Grande, and that it is now currently reported in Mexico that they are to be stationed cast of that river. It is said that the Mexican Government is determin ed to take possession ol the country west of the Neuces, and when the measuro of Annexation is consummated, she will appeal to the world and declare that aa the territory west of the Neucea ism possession of her troops, the claim of Texas to it is void. Information has recently been received at Corpus Christ! that indicates that Mexico is playing a deep scheme of treach ery.' From Texas. It appears that an Indian war is now raging along the whole line of the Rio Grande from its mouth to its source. On the South the Camanchcsare devastating ihe country irom niaiamoran to the rasso del Norte, above this town the Apaches and Klo- waya are extending their depredations near to Albuquerque, and above this position the Yuta Indians are desolating the country through the whole valley of Taos. The war with theso Indian tribes will proba bly become more and more formidable to the Mexican settlements until these Indians arc checked by the United States. The weak settlements of Chithunhua and Santa Fo will be scarcely able to withstand the terrible inroads of these savages aided by the In dian allies from Arkansas and Missouri, who have battled with success even with the vete ran troops of the United States. Indeed, it is not improbable that the whole province of Calihuahua and Santa Fe may be in possession of Indian tribes in the course of five or ten years, unless the Government of the United States interposes its authority to keep these tribes in check. For this reason Mexico would derive an immense advantage from an ncxation. Houston 'telegraph. "The people (ol Mexico,) are madly in favor of war, and the adoption of any course by the existing government having a peaceful tenden cy, will more than probably result in is over throw. ' The friends of Santa Anna and the opposi tion generally, stimulates this warlike spirit to the utmost, and one of two things is rendered almost certain, either that tho existing govern ment declare war against the United States, or that a new revolution will speedily break out and aweep it from existence.' FIRE IN THE WOODS. The township of Moriah, in the State of new York, lias been scourged by one of tho most destructive fires we have ever known in a wilderness region. The extent of ter ritory burnt is about 8 miles in length and 2 in breadth, on which wus located quite a number of sawmills, dwelling houses, barns, and a large quantity of vnluaLIn lumber, cV.c ; nothing now remains but a mass of ruins. The fire spread with such rapidity, that the inhabitants had barely time to escape with their lives. The los is estimated at something over three hundred thousand dollars. A corres pondent of the Essex County Times gives (lie following account of it. The fire originated in West Moriah on the farm of Col. Harnea. It was first seen in a little bit of tun, nd water was turned on lo put it out. but whi loCol. Barnes' men were at dinner ihe wind blew il un and spread il until it was unconquerable. At It o'clock, A. M. June 10th, it waa on Ihe ro-id leading from East lo West Moriah. Two hours after Barnes and Travis mills lay in ashes. By 3 o'clock, P. M. it had traveled about 8 miles, when it reached ihe stream on which were the mills of Judge Storrs, En-ign, and Spencer. Before 4 o'clock, P. M-,four mills, f-c, as above stated, lay a heap of burning ru ins. Such was Ihe rapidity with which the fire trav eled, (hat the smoke in ihe distance was hardly dis covered before I lie fire waa upon the spot. The la mi nes no uvea at tnose saw mills had barely got thro surmising what and where ihe fire could be. when Ihey were obliged lo flee, to save themselves and little ones, taking only lhe;r cow, with such things as Ihe coui-i carry unaer ineir arms, une lainiiv leu in sue hasle that the father lost even his hat.

Thus, these families who were hastening out of the woous, wouia ouen discover nre ahead ol them, when Ihey would hasten on again, but only to paas through ore ana sinoKe. Ten or twelve men were intensely engaged at what s called "Ensign's unoer mill." and in a few momenta the Are had passed them, surrounding them on all aides, ao thai I'.iev could net leave. Many had left mem, anu some oi tne "ten" would have been glad to leave, but being hemmed in, "they fought like brave men, long ana wen, anu ino at times ready to Jinn irons fatigue the mill and lumlr were finally saved. During tbe hottest of the fire, vounir Sloreaand Wm Foster left from what waa called "Ensign'a lower mill," lo cross the hills to Ihe other milts belonging to Judge Storrs.

In Ihe vicinity of the fire the wind blew a nerfert hurricane, while oui in the cleared land it was as calm and quiet as a lamb.

Tlio following is, perhaps, tho last written statement mado by the departed patriot Jackson : "I havo carefully examined the within declaration of General Robert Armstrong for a pension, and do hereby certify that il it true in all its parts) and I do further certify that in the battle of the 23d of January, 1814, called and known by thenameof Enotochopco, the shameful flight of myrear guard produced panic and confusion in mv whole armv, thai it was the un-flinchino- bravery nf then Lieutenant Armstrong.. act ing as captain of the volunteer artillery guards, that saved my who'e army from a total and shameful de feat, and nil my wountler! from horrid massacre.

ANUKKW JACKSON." FRIDAV MORNING, JUNE27, 1845. CORRECTION. We have been furnished with the procend ings of the meeting called to consider the ubject of President Jackson's decease, at too late a moment to allow us tho comment they are calculated to call forth. We can not omit, howevct, to express our regret that it should have been deemed expedient to be daub tliu fame of Gen. Jackson with such a rigmarole of windy wordy fustian and false hood. There wcro enough prominent nr.d good points in his character to havo given full play to truthful and generous common dation, without claiming for him sentiments he never entertained, or attributing to him qualities ho in no degree possessed. But idolatry and man worship are besetting sins ot the nineteenth century. Among the mis takes our neighbors havo fallen into there is one which demands immediate correction. The first clause of the preamble asserts : " Whereas it hath pleased Divine Provi dence, to remove from the shores of time, all that was perishable of Andrew Jackson,' &c. From this it is quite evident that they are laboring under the impression that Gen- Jackson did not die, like other men, but that he was translated like Elijah, and '' all that was perishable removed," &c. This is a mistake. We have seen a particular ac count of the funeral, and are well assured that tho " perishable " remains of Gen. Jack son, still linger upon the " shores of time." The preamble was probably drawn up by a Millerite. fJTThe following extract from a commu nication signed " Navy-Ysrder " in the U. S. Journal, is certainly commendable for its simple hearted exposition of the motives which incite the " Yruinfi Democracy " to labor for the " safety of our Republican in stitutions ": No one thin? nossiblv tended morn la the defeitt e,r ine uemocrauc party, under air. Van Uuren, in IBtu, lhan the exercise of ihis unwise clemency patron izing enemies, and discoursing friends. The evil ef fects of il were fell severely in the late contest, when many quoted the course of Mr. Van Buren in his ap pointments aa a cause of their apathy! for they ar gued mat il waa useless for then to labor in a cause which resulted, in any event, to the benefit of the op posite parly. Certainly, and that is tha way they always argue. 1 hey showed some gumption in Ihis matter, for they well knew, and were honest enough to avow, that the only " benefit " which wus ever apparent tu their optics, as connected willi Loco politics, was the bene fit of tho spoils. Tlioy were right in saying it was useless for them to labor in such a cause, but they were very naughty in embar rassing Mr. Polk's election by quoting Van Buren's clemency to Whigs as a reason for " apathy J If ever a Loco put pen tp paper to write such transparently truthful confession of the motives ofLocofocoism, it hss unluckily escsped our notice. Here is no pretence of rear lor the " great cause of Democracy " no lore for the equal rights of Ihe " hard handed Republican," no terrors at the suc cess of " Federal measures," but simply an avowal that "it was useUssto labor in cause, which resulted in "toy event lo the benefit or the opposite party." Hero, Democrats ; " pure," "unadultcra- ted," iterllnB," "hard handed," "tin bought," 11 indomitable," as your toadies are alwayi calling you, here are your principlci set forth in one of your Washington organs : 11 it is USELESS to labor in a cause " un less the laborers get their hire in the shape of fat cuts from the government carcase I This Is another proof that what is revolv ing in a million of minds, wilt at least burst out of one, and it throws light on the noble indifference to honors and emoluments, which has been boastfully paraded as the crowning glory of Locofoco enthusiasm. NEW MUSIC. It will be seen by reference to our adver tising columns that the " Campanologian Brothers" piopose to treat us with some new music new in this region, at any rale. Every body has heard of the " Swiss Bell Ringers," though few, wo imagine, conceive of tho Gno musical effect produced by a chime of some ten or dozen simple bells, covering a single octavo. But this is quite another affair. It is a company of Ameri can Amateurs mostly respectable citizens of Albany who took the matter up a few months since, and, if we may credit common fame, havo already thrown the Swiss per formers into the back-ground. Instead of ten, they uso forty bells, covering three and half octavos, and touching every tone, semi-tone, and modulation within the range. The most difficult pieces are performed with greul accuracy, and the effect is said to be fine. There are but seven persons to play theso forty bells, and as each bell represents but one tone, the frequent changes called for involve great skill and dexterity in the exe cution. They have performed in many of the principal towns and cities, and wo havo hardly opened an exchange paper for six weeks past, without meeting a complimcn taiy notice of their performance, and wo cannot doubt that those who have " music in their souls'' will avail themselves of this op portunity of hearing the harsh and grating tones of a wide-mouthed brawling dinner bell melted down and modulated to the softest notes of " Home, sweet Home." ZOOLOGICAL EXHIBITION. It will be observed by reference to tho ad vertisement, that an imposing retinue of wild animals from Ihe Philadelphia Institute, will make a grand entree at this place on the morning of the 4th, and be exhibited for two days. This will afford our juvenile friends a fine opportunity of observing our national holiday in a less objectionable way than sometimes occurs. Exhibitions of this kind have changed very much within a few years. We believe that one company now owns every animal kept for exhibition in the Uni ted States. This company is composed of menof wealth and character, who manage tho concern with due regard to the higher and more important public interests involved in matters of this character. Hence studious regard is had to the character of the persons connected with it all of whom nre teeto tallers, wc hear and exhibitions of the kind, are now measurably divested of the profani ty, vice and dissipation, which formerly con stituted so serious an objection to them. Seventy such horses as they drive is enough to call up Buceplielas himself; and, a four cattle team of elephants, caparisoned and driven in state, is surely a novelty that will challenge competition with any thing since '40. But connected with amusement, there is substantial instruction and benefit in it. While the study of natural history is regard ed as one of tho important departments of education, that parent does well with hit money who affords his children the opportu nity of realizing the truthful existence of so many of the wonders of creation of which lie reads. N. Y. COLLECTOR. The resignation or removal of Mr. Van Ness from the Collector's office at N. York, has been a fruitful topic of conversation for some days in certain quarters, and wo havo heard very contradictory statements made as to the real character of this transaction. The following article seems to throw some light on the subject ; and as il has been some days before the public without contradiction, we are at liberty to presume that it is essen tially correct. New Yobk Collectoi. Extract of a letter dated vvasningion, June is. . Il has been represented Ihst Gov. Van Ness resign ed his office as Collector, and parted Irom it in har mony with Ihe administration. How far ihia may be irue, you will judge from the following facia. Governor Tan Ness waa assured hv Mr P.lli thai he would nol be removed unless for cause, nor unless charges ahould be preferred against him, whiih, after oue nonce io mm ana a lair hearing, should he f ud atantiated. The Collector learning, however, that Mr. Polk was embarrassed and bored by those who wished to oust mm, wrote a jirirars letter lo Mr Secretary Waller, saying that he waa ready lo resign whenever it should do lounu necessary lor ine convenience ol the Presi dent. Subsequently, the Secretary informed the Col lector lhal his offer had bc.m considered bv ihe Presi dent and was accepted, and that the President would expect lo receive the resiunalion. The Collector aent ine resignation io nis proiner, nenerai, van mess, of inia city, wun uireciiuna 10 present ii or noi, as ne might deem proper. The General would nol present il, and il was soon countermanded by ihe Collector himself. Mr. Walker, ihe Secretary of the Treasury, teaming that the letter of resignation had been sent, applied lo General Van Ness for it. and insisted unon its being offered. He claimed it on the ground of the irnuer mane or ine collector in his private letter to him, upon which ground the President hsd acted. The General maintained, on ihe other hand, that the tender waa unofficial and not binding, and thai Ihe teller of reaig nation had been withdrawn. At thia stage of the business, a friend of ihe Collec tors leu tnis city for New York and immediately re turned with Ihe resignation. Tha Collm-inr. sultaiion with his friends, waa advised to resign, after what had taken place. General Van Ness had an interview with Ihe Presi dent and remonstrated rlroncly againal the treatment of his brother. He subsequently addressed a letter, wnn copies in eaen head or uepsrlment, lo the pres ident, -n Ihe subject, u hich ia aaid lo be very severe. The appointment of Mr. Lawrence is nol well rel ished by the Democrats. Mr Lawrence was a con servative alwaya opposed lo the sub-Treasury and refused lo lend any aid for ihe promotion of Mr Polk's election, i. . torn. Aat. Hon. Louis M'Lane has accepted the appointment of Minister to England. It has been supposed that this appointment was made with reference to transferlng Ihe Ore gon negotiation to London. But the official paper at Washington disavows any such in tcntion on the part of our government. DEATH OF GEN. JACKSON. ' Pursuant to previous notice, a large number of the citizens of Burlington, convened at Ihe Court House, on Wednesday evening the 25th Inst., for an appro priate cxpresfion of public scnliments, in view of the death of Gen. Jackson, and the meeting being called to order, John Her rick Esq. was appointed chair man, and John B. Hollenbeck, Esq. Secretary. On motion of A. B. Bishop, fcsq, the chair appoin ted the following gentlemen aa a committee to draft resolutions, expressive of the sense of the meeting t C. D. Kassox, L. E. Chittindcm, Isaac Nve, A. II. Bishop, S. HVHTI.IOTOK, W, R. VILA", N. B. Haswill, Bostwick Towbliy, John W. Patriooc, Hcniv Whit.nii and Samuel Niciiolls, Esqrs. In the absenco of the committee, the meeting waa forcibly addressed by Mr. Eaton, who having con cluded his remarka, Mr. Chittenden, from tho com mittee on reaolutiona reported the following t Whereas, it hath pleased Divine Providence, to re move from the shores of time, all that was perishable ol Andrew Jackson, and as we deem it becoming in every patriot to mourn over the greivous dispensation, which has deprived ourcounlry of one, who hod ina peculiar manner, endeared himself to tho heart nf hi people, and as in his death, America has lost a great conservator ofher liberties the world a man, mighty in war, strong in council, and gentle in peace, wc, as a manifestation of our sincere respect, for the memo ry of the illustrious dead, adopt tho following resolu tions. Ilesolted, That, in the demise of Andrew Jockson, Ihe Union has lost its early and untiring friend; ardent supporter) successful defender; watcltful guardian and paternal cuidc; and mankind, thenfore through out Ihe world, a public benefactor, philanthropic statesman, and christian man, Ilesolted, That hia unrivalled sagacity as a states man) his unuMvcringcourage as a general) hia firm deportment as a judge; nnd bis unassuming modesty as a private citizen, entitled him to Ihe admiration of ine worm, anu the emulation orevery patriotic Ameri can. Itesolved, That, while the nation mourna the lo'S ofher hero, her legislator and her patriot, she haa abundant reason to rejoice that ho has gone to his grave) with the work of hia life pcrfecled ; his mea sure of glory full j cheered with Ihe gtatitudc of his countrymen) and consoled with the hope of a blessed immortality. Ilesolted, That when the memory of the good man shall fail lo bo cherished, tho councils of him, who has identified himself with the very existence of lib erty, cease to influence the lover of his country in flexible integrity and purity of purpose, no more be worthy of esteem, then, nnd not till then, can it with Irutn be said, that the spirit, which warmed the breast oi Anurcw Jackson has departed. Ilesolted. That drpartinz aa ho did. Icavinc "neilh er Kith or Kin" we his countrymen, of right may mourn asms cnnaren. Itesolved, That, the unaffected simplicity of his na lure, and his mind deeply imbued with Republican sentiments, could not but prefer making his pleasant grate in ine aitcctionsni his t-elnved people lo being georeeouslv entombed in a roval Sarconhaeus. Ilesolted, That to such spirits as was his, do we owe that character, which makes us honored as Americans that happiness, which is the fruit of a true social progress, that sentiment of human equality of rights, which makes us respect each other, and though we have Ihe brishtest hooe for our country. and mourn, deeply mourn, that Andrew Jackson is no more, we also neve that there are no more An drew Jacksons. Wyllre Lyman, Esq. moved the adoption of the re solutions, and accompanied his motion with a forcible and elegant speech. Mr. Chittenden, also, addressed the meeting, enforcing the adoption of ihe resolutions; which being submitted were unanimously adopted. On motion of Mr. l.owry it was ordered that the proceedings of the meeting, signed by the chairman and secretary, should be presented to the publishers of the villago papers, with a request that they would publish the same. The meeting then adjourned. JOHN HKimiCK, Cnafrmun, J. B. H01.LI:NDECK, 6Vy. NEW INVENTION. Mr. Ezra Colman of Saratoga I'ns recent ly invented what is termed an 'endless screw,' which is to be attached to railroad locomo lives, and will enable them to ascend and descend inclined planes of the steepest grades, and drag along after them any amount of loading. Those who have seen it pro nounco it one ofthe most important improve ments of the age, and the numerous experi merits which have burn made to test its vul ue and feasibility li.ivu hrcn attended with the most satisfactory results. The editor of tho Saratoga Whig lias witnessed experi ments with a niini-il tire Locomotive, which is so small that il can he put in a peck mcas use, and says that it " easily carried up a gentleman of two hundred weight, on a tem porary inclined plane twice us steep as any actually in uso in the country." The fol lowing description which wc copy from tho Whig will give uu idea of its operation! "The "attachment" or endless screw can he nnnli. ed to any locomotive, nt an expense not exceeding 3500. I'pon the shaft nf the driving wheel of the loco motive is placed a cog wheel, which when the wheel is not in motion plays loosely upon the shaft. Beneath the locomotive ih placed, horizontally, tho endless screw; the cog wheel upon the driving shaft working into iho cog wheel upon the shaft of the endless screw thus produces motion. To correspond w ith the screw, is n central track, upon which friction circular rollers -ire placed, and when the locomotive approiclies an inclined plane, ii is iiiruwn mui sear nnu me Fcrew rcolves, the uliolo forco of the locomotive operating exclusively upon Ihe shall ol the driving wheel. The locomotive witi ascend or oescend the steepest places without detention or dancer, it being entirely under control of iho engineer, with ennrmous capacities for taking up heavy loads, without reference to their in clination. This lmnrovement. douM ess. is one of the most important which has ever been conceived in connex ion with rail roads. Had its merits been known and appreciated, hundreds of thousands of dollars might have been saved in the construciion ot Ihe Hailaem rail road, and the Schenectaday and Albany road would not have found it ncoesairy to do away iili the inclined planes at either end of that route. Penn sylvania mtsiit abandon her expensive stationary power, and the Brooklyn tunnel would hae been ren dered utterly unnecessary. The screw under the loco motive in no woy inteiferas with Ihe regular opera tions of the engine, but the moment it logins to as cend Ihe inclined plane it is throw n into gear and does its work without the slightest lal-or or detention. "Mr. Colman tails for Europe in the next Uoston steam ship, leaving in the hands of an agent Ihe right to dispose ol it to companies in this country. Il will enable rail roads lo be carried in direct lines, shorten distances, save deep cuts ihrough vast quantities of stone, render stationary engines unnecessary, end re duce imr.iensely the expense reconstructing roads. The expense ofthe improvement is merely the screw on the locomotives and the additional track of a few roda wherever an inclined plane occurrs. Mr. Colman proposos to visit England, France, Germany, Austria I ande-pecially Rusiia, where hcexpecls extensive con-' tracts with eath government. He is fortified with letters from Mr. Packenham, the Driti&h Minister, Mr i Buchanan, Secretary of State, from the French, tic , gian, Austrian and Russian ministers, each lo eminent ' engineers, or direct to the tiovernment whom ihey I represent, we look forward to ine career oi our young townsman as one which will give him honor and profit and add distinction lo the ingenious character of Americans in the old world." ARREST. Marshall Burnham ofWilliamstown Vt.has just been arrested, and is now in jail at Chel sea, under suspicion ol being tho murdered of Mr. Parker, who was murdered a short lime since at Manchester, N. H. There are strong circumstantial evidences against Mr. B. We have not yet ascertained the partic ulars. Protector. We should bo very slow lo bolievo, from what we havo formerly known of the indi vidual mentioned above, that he would be engaged in a deed of that most horrid charac ter. Indued 'o cannot think thai he is any sch person. Wti will wait, however, and learn the "particulars" beforo venturing fur ther opinions in tho case. B. Falls Gat.

This city waa visited thia morning about 8 o'clock with a ehower of rain, accompanied with some of Ihe sharpest thunder and lightning wo have ever aeen. The Salem Stage waa standing at the office near the Merrimack House, resdy to atari, when a flash of lightning, immediately followed by a heavy peal of thunder, startled Ihe horses. Mr. N. II. O. Welton, stage agent, and one of our most res pectable citizens, ran out of theofficcand caught ons of Ihe horses ; he was thrown down, and Ihe wheels of the atage passed over his body. He was picked up and taken lo the sidewalk ) lie walked but a few steps, when he immediately expired. Mr. Welton has left a wife, and a son who is at sea I he waa about forty five years of age. The driver, Mr. Shackley, was on the stage at the time of the accident, and was thrown oil', but was not seriously injured. Thore was one lady inside at the time. The horses ran up Merri mack street at lull speed, and in turning a corner near the Western canal the coach upset. The lady esca ped uninjured. Two men who were ot work at the time in the Ma chine shop Lumber yard, were knocked down and stunned by the lightning, but they soon recovered. The one stunned ihe worst was Mr. Nathan Carroll; he was very faint for a lime, and had to be carried home. Lowell Courier. A Novelty im Matrimony. A few davs since there arrived at Soulhport, Wisconsin, "in mo steamer empire, a lot ol emigrants to the West, among whom were two pair of twins. Those twins were born of different parents but under tho same roof and at the same house. Each pair comprised a boy and girl ; they lived near neighbors from infancy, and the same day before starting West, they were united in mar.1 riage tlio male and female of the different nairs.
