The following one, on a subject highly interesting to every cul tivator of the Pear tree on tlio sea-board, appears to he highly satisfactory in lioth resp"ct. Such of our readers as arc familiar with the Appendix to our work on Fruits, are well nwaro llta,t wo do not believe in the natural 'running out" of varieties. In other words, we arc confi dent that where a variety, once productive nnd excellent in a certain soil, fails, it is for the want of certain conditions necoss try to its success. Either it has exhausted the soil of those constit uents necessary to health and productiveness ; or, if the tree is a young one, and immediately shows signs of decay, it is crident that it has been propagated from an unhealthy and diseas ed stock.

It was very healthy, and hid tho apeirance of that of a very tine young tree.- Suffice it to saw that the tree had formed a new and haudsomu head. Next season, 1815, blossomed moderately Hut almost every blossom set and gave mo fruit. Every fruit to my great joy and satisfaction, was Urge, fair and smooth ; the growth was. clean and healthy, and the leaves dark green in color. This year, I havo had a fine crop: two bush els from one tree, four bushels from tho other. They were superb fruit genuine, old-fashioned Virgalietts ; and I cannot doubt that my trees will continue to bear such for many years. I need not say, that 1 and many others arc convinced by this experiment, that tho pear tree of many sorts in my neighborhood, have failed from the want of proper sustenance in the mil. Whether tho receipt you gave me, may bo im proved upon or not, I cannot say; but I can say, that, so far. it has answered perfectly : and it is my belief that every old and enfeebled pear tree, that bears cracked fruit, may bo restored to good health and a lino hearing condition by following the same rules.

To those of your readers, who may be desi rous of getting this manure, and testing its prop erties, I will remark that any of the packing houses in New York will lie glad todispose of it, at about twenty-live cents per barrel, unless a demand may induce them to raise the price. .Salt is a wonderful food for plants, and strange tome is it that none of tho agricultural clubs havo called the attention of fanners to the im portance of its use. Another time, 1 can give you my experience in its application to meadows, The advantages of tho salt which has been previously used in packing meat, are, I feel cer tain from my own experiments, very considera ble. As ii 'fertilizer, the anamal matter mixed with it being large, it is greatly increa-cd in value; while being considered a rufuu article, it may usually j c.bt lined at such prices as render it one of the cheapest manures.

There are counties on the river which have given positive Whig majorities such uslmg Island, and tlio river counties wherein tho question did not turn upon tho local questions atiecting the personal choice ol members, nut, throwing aside these returns for the Assembly, and all the local questions connected with them, it Is now certain that tho Whigs havo elected the Governor of New-York by 1 1 ,000 or 1 i.',000 majority. Not only is this a cry handsome majority far the Governor, but when we look at the Congressional delegation, wo find that more than two thirds cheers are ours. Cheering, Throughout the whole State wo ran for mem bers of Congress, and throughout the whole State we are far ahead. But instead of choos ing the Whigs ought to have chosen 20 mem bers. Unhappily, in tho city anil in King's coun ty, tho Whigs and tho Native Republicans were divided. Now, the Native Republicans nnd the Whigs are divided. Among tho former I must say that there are men of intelligence, and lamgludto say men of tho best character. They have all great personal and political resjicctability, and I should bo glad if all could bo chosen ; 1 should be happy, too, could, at the samo time, some others of our candidates for Congress have been elected. James Monroe, inheriting not only the name, but the virtues of his ancestor, Van Wag encn, I'hocnix. Unhappily this division among our party, and among the agents we employed, defeated all, and let in the enemy. This let in the enemy. This was unhappy. But it docs not become mo to impute blame to any body, on this account. It was one of the infirmities of human nature. Gentlemen, I shall go, on Monday, to tho meeting in the town in which I live, and there deposit my vote. Loud applause. I shall find many well-meaning men who differ from me, though they do not write 'conscience.' upon their flag. Some of my worthy neighbors will give their votes for tho candidates of tho 3d party, with tho certainty that their votes can only avail to koep the district unrepresented, or let in tho opposition candidate. I wish, that upon this sub ject, I could address myself feeble as my voice might be to every voter in the district in which I live. The evil which threatens us is not to ho over come by railing or reproach, hut by reasoning with our neighbors by representing to them the true consequences of their conduct-and by show ing them its inevitable result. It Is as clear as anything can be, that those per sons who voted the third arly ticket in 184 1, suf fered Mr. I'olk to bo elected and Texas to be an nexed. And therefore, so far as their permission extended, they suffered, what we call the .Mex ican War to be sprung upon us. Tho Mexican War ! It was proclaimed on the house-tops by the opposition, that the annexation of Texas would involve a war with -Mexico, and denied by tho other side. Anil yet those who professed to bo tho most zealous for peaceable annexation, did what they could to bring about a war. But to return to the causes which havo brought about these changes in tho .Middle States. hat has caused this change ? It is all to bo referred to the recent masures of Congress, not owing to the chain;,. ..rih'ty i,r u hundred here and there iu the State of New York, but because the reflecting men of all par ties tho masses, the troop-, havo rome over from tho opposite side and voted the Whigticket. In the most effectual manner they have signified their litter disapprobitiou of tho war, tho new tariff, the sub-treasury and the various other pro jects of the administration. Tried on this standard, New-York has gone Whig, and es pecially as to members nf Congress ha sho gone Whig out and out. Tho result here opens quite a new view it opens quite new prospects ; and if, as I trust, tho Whig will act becomingly and moderately, and discreetly, we shall hold tho majority we have gained. Gentlemen, I do not suppose that the Sub- Treasury did much for tlio Administration in ... . 1 .tcw-iorK. i nai is not yet in operation, ami its benefits arc not yet perceived. Laughter. .Much as is the influence of the Union, it cannot refer all thaso result to the Sub-Treasury, ei- ther on one side or tho other. The Tariff and tho War have had their share. But I do not propose I h ive not time to en - ter into Ihe details of either of these. Tho Mexican War i universally odious throughout thu United States; and uo havo yet to find any Semproniu who raise hi voice "for it. Here some one in tho gallery asked Mr. Webster who voted for tho War. Ho replied " Nobody at all. The Freiident made it with- out any vote whatever."

Wo hail received her as a State, and had assumed her Ism ndary the Nueces. Why should wo not treat, with Mexico for that ? Why, when all new territory of the United States was hounded by the Nueces, and every thing beyond that was claimed by Mexico, and iu the actual poss-ssion of Mexico why, then, 1 say, should the l'resi dent of the United States have ordered the army south of Nueces, to take possession of tho Mexi can land ? That was tho origin of tho war, and that was against the spirit of the Constitution of tlio United States. Vehement applause. Con gress alone has tho poworto declare war, and yet it is obvious, under the present construction, that if tho l'resident is resolved to involve tho country in a war, ho may do it. This, I say, is a great misjiidgmcnt on tho part of tho Presi dent ; it i a clear violation of hi duty ; in my judgment it is an imjieachablo offence. Great cheering. Tho great objection to this war is tint it is il legal In it character. There has been a great violation nf duty on the urt of tho President. Ilu has plunged thu country into war, whereas, unless In case of invasion of our actual limits, he bus no right so todo. lu that case of such in vasion, Ihe power does exist ill thu l'resident to take mcsuresto repel aggression. But to go out of our limits, and declare war for a foreign n-rupation of what does not belong to us, i no part of tho power invested iu our President by our Constitution. So much for tho origin of the war. Mr. Chairman, I wish to speak with all so berness in this respect, and I would say nothing, liero, to-night, which I would not say in my placo in Cougross, or beforo tho whole world, Tho question now is, for what purHise, and for what ends, is tlio present war to bo prosecuted. And in sneaking of this let mo, in tho first nlare. nut myself right beforo tho peoplo. Indi vidually I havo no respect for tno Government of .. . Mexico. The peoplo of that country aro 111" worst gevcrned on the face of the earth. They was "reat I '"'tween .viexico aim me uuueu ouues. i nu ine interesis 01 j.iuor. . ueering.j i iwiu u.n. j.nwt,,nu ,.i-.uiu-ii'u uie siorius wo iiau iu arc subject wholly to military despotism, nnd it m ilters not whether I'aredcs, Almonte, Santa Anna, Ampudia, or any one else wields the su premo power. They are all, and only, military chiefs. And I say, also, that Mexico should have come to terms with us before. Tho United States havo wellfounded claims against Mexico. There is no doubt of that. And I havo as little doubt, and as little hesitation, ill saying that .Mexico Ins behaved most wrongfully toward us. Sho has acteil ruinously for her own inter ests, and injuriously for her own character in all respects. Alexicoisa Republic professedly formed on our own model. I could wish wo nil wish that she could find among her sons another Washington. But the truth must be told. And the truth is, that all the Republics made out of the Spanish dominions in America, havo been most miserable failures. Mexico, especially, has no principle of free government about her at all. But to Indulge theso considerations is not to discharge our own duty of inquiry into tho ob jects and ends of this war. Who knows any thing about the war, except that our armies have reached to Monterey, and will reach to Mexico, if they can ? Applause. And what then ? Is tho whole country to bo fortified taken possession ol as American territory equal to the formation of forty now States ? These are questions which it is time frr lis to put with so briety nnd seriousness. It i time .'or us to know what arc the objects and designs of our Govern ment. The natural justice of a war, it i, perhaps, not an American habit to consider. But it is an American habit to count tie cost, audi may be indulged a moment while I look at that. 1 have been at some pains to ascertain tho f.icts in this respect, and I submit to your consideration tho results to which I have arrived.

So that the result is that tho Government, for the 1 ist five month, has been pivinrr at the rato of;o inllliiiMH iKjrntmnin tr twice the amount of me revenue. And this does not include the out standing claims. All this is to bo met. And how is it to be met .' Congress has given authority to tho Secretary of tho Treasury to issue Treasury notes, and to cflectaloan. The note have been issued, and the loan has been applied for at a high rato of interest, o per cent but as the existing Oelit is not above par, it U doubtful whether the new issue can be obtained on favorable terms. And here appears the absurdity of the Sub Treasury scheme. And 1 inu-t av, that if Government were to set it-elf to word mo-t ef fectually to thwart its own financial measures itcould not contrive a better means than the Sub Treasury for the propose. Government, for in stance, asivs iu stance, a-k lor a loan now, and outains u irom ' ,ie capitalists. In January next, it requires ',10t,cr loan of say teti million, all to be paid ;n specie.

Mr. Dombey had remained in his own apart ment since the death of hi wife, absorln'd in visions of the youth, education, nnd d jstinitiou ' of hi baby son. Something lay at the bottom of his cool heart, colder and heavier than its or- I din try load ; but it was more a sense of tho child s loss than his own, awnltening within him an almost angry sorrow. That tho life nnd progress on which he built such hopes, should he endangered in tho outset by so mean a want ; that Diiinb-y and Sou should lie tottering for a nur-o, wa a sore humiliation. And yet iu his prido and jealousy, bo viewed with so much bit terness the thought of being dependent for thn very lir.-t -tep toward the accomplishment of bis snul's desire, on a hired serving-unman who would be to the child, for the time, all that even is alliance could hive made his own wife, that in every new rejection of a candidate he felt a secret pleasure.
