When I commenced my present seiics of lettei 1 had no expectation that my strictures would ha caused as much excitement here as they have dor Th? rental lis which 1 have made 'respecting t United States squadron upon this station,'and t independent style in which my essays have be written, have occasioned considerable exciteme e among those who are unwilling their actions shoe !" be brought before the public, and their authors!] has been attribnted to more than one individu i under the hope of frowning " Cincinnati!*" in , silence, while I have "peeped through the lo r holes of retreat," and enjoyed their anxiety. T HeralJ, which circulates extensively even in tl 0 remote land, is eagerly sought after, uot so nau ' on account ol what has been written, at iu expec tion of what may appearin the succeeding numbei j Those who are in official stations, under a repub can j^vernmcnt, should remember the old Sjot ballad > " It there's a hole in a' your coats, j I'd rede ye tent it, A chich'.'a among ye takin' notes,] And faith he'll prent it." ( In all mr communications strictly adhering truth, I shall pursue the even tenor of my way i gardlcss of the violence ofnpp sition, and with t fearlessness becoming aman and the independem oi a repuoitcan. so aiucn tor your corrcspenaei personally, I hare yet a few more words to say in relation the navy Why is it that upon so important a at tion a* this, where thousands of dollars are annual expanded for supplies for our national resse; J there is no regularly accredited uavy agent of r i snousibility, but that the purchases and the suppli 1 should ba in the hands of the same individual, ai J the American merchants be debarred a fair comp tition in their attempts to furnish stores for tl United States squadron! The answer is to f found in the powerful motives of personal interei j Some of our supplying officers would receive bundsomt remuneration through return fees ai commissions, even if no per ccntage was allowi f upon their disbursements. This is not a mere mi tcr of speculation Documentary proof, 1 undt * s anl, has been forwarded to the department Washington, establishing biyend question that i turn commissions have been received to a lar amount by some of our officers, from the indit dual from whem they procure their supplies, re dering the perquisites so important an object, tb t it is their interast to eontinue the very objection ble course which has been pursued here for soc years past, while the poor seamen, rdying up ^he protection of their government against isopo r tion, are compelled to pay exorbitant prices for i their necessary articles of consumption to cov ' this enhanced expense. So long as the pursers the navy are allowed a per centage upon the cc prices of the articles tliey furnish, just so long becomes their interest to enhance tne cost, and r they can realize as much profit on the sale of oi pound of tea, or one yard of cloth under the pt sent system, as they would upon two if the bin i ncss was conducted upon proper principles, thi will be opposed to reform. 1 he seamen engagi in the service of the r country have a right to d mand relief from this crying evil, and f have i doubt that when the subject becomes properly u derstood, it will be remedied. This can easily I effected by making them salaried officers, ai placing it ont of their reach from interested motiv to impose upon those who are dependent upon the for their supplies. Were I to natrste one-half of tl impositions which have been praciised in the pa chase of articles for our squadron here with a lew yean past, it would surprise my reader*, could tell them of cordage to a large aam>unt chargt * at twice it* value in thi* maiket, wWn it could I piocared in abundance at a fair valuation, ol oth article* for ship use under the same circumstance of Immense quantities of stores of bad quality, at which in a few weeks were condemned as unfit f I. use, and all done to encourage some favorite, w!

I could do more?I eould show tfa thousands of dollars have been expended for t navy, and the disbursing officer allowed private a return commission of five percent, indirect vi lation oflaw, and the goods charged at en enhane , price to government,^o as to cover this expen ' to the furnisher- This is net idle declamation. is so much a ma ter of known truth that gorernme I has been placed iu possession of the facts and p roi to sustain thsm. 1 have so much confidence in t integrity of the head of the department as r feel assured that this stain upoa our national cl ractcr will be speedily erased by the substitute of such an arrangement as will guard against t! evil in future.

Where is the man who elaims the title an American citizen, who does not sometimes rec to the sceaes of the late war, and feel as if the was a gldt*y radiating from the very name of tl American navy, and that it constitutes cue of tl most important features in his country's fame!

Trade and r,? Commerce. ve la my present communication I shall take a brief le* notice, oi,as Maflit says, a bird's eye Tictv" of 116 the exhibition of the blind, which took place in our ,le city a few nights since, its cbject being to solicit | eu interest and feeling among aur citizens in behalf of :nt this helpless branch of the human race !jd The school is to be established in this city for klP the instruction of the blind, and to prove the appli*'? cabilitv of their beinar instructed. Mr. Howe, from 1,0 Boiton, has given public exhibition ef his mode 1 ?P and manner of teaching; and that the citizens of Louisville take a deep and vital interest in this 1,8 most philanthropic cause. The large and crowded audience each evening deeply testify that they will la" use the utmost means to place it upon a basis eq'tal, r'- if not superior, to any in the west, cannot for a moli meut be denied. One of the pupils is from Boston, ch and was a Sophomore in Cambridge University; others were from Columbus, Ohio. '1 hey were examined in mental and practical arithmetic, in reading and writing, geography and astronomy,in Greek and Latin. Several of the most respectable citizens conducted the examination; the answers on te all and every branch were most satisfactory. A re- small boy or about eight years read in the B'ble he with excetding rapidity; four folds of a silk handce kerchief were placed en the printed page; this it scarcely made any perceptible difference in the rapidity of his reading, to Another boy more advanced in years was now a called, and requested te translate from the Latin, ly "Viri Romae" was placed in his hands, with a rets, quest that he would read. When tho book was e- opened, the chapter proved to be one concerning es ? Scipio Africanus " He translated with ease and ad great accuracy. He was next called upon to transre late Greek, it being first read to him; in this he lie seemed to be perfectly at home. Geography was be the next branch?the kind of map used was shown it. the audience, its Convenience and peculiar adaptaa tion to the use of the blind explained; the young nd min appeared a proffieieut in this. Music was oced casionally introduced to enliven the audience, and it- prove to them how easily the blind could be taught ir- this most cheering art, which wouid not only serve at to enliven them in their lonely situation, but be the *c- mean- of procuring for themselves an honu.-t and ge respectable livelihood " Twilight dews arc falling ri- fact,"" The Mountain Brow," " The Sea, the Sea," n- and " The Country Schoolmaster," ivete among the at many songs which these pretty blind warbieisao ia- sweetly sang. Several very beautifal pieces from ne eminent arliatea wete finely executed by them, on Beside the very satisfactory proofs which these si unfortunate ycuths gave, that tne blind were suaall ceptible of the highest grades of mental culture and er improvement, there were other proceedings which in deserve some slight notice. st C. M Thurston arose and addressed the auit dience in a speech of thrilling eloquence. He if fpoke in merited praise of Dr. Howe, who has dene voted many years of his life in the amelioration of e- ihe condition of the blind?spoke of the gratifying ii- evidence that had b e.r given, that the condition of ey the blind could be rendered comparatively hanpy; ed that unfortunate class of society restored to usee fulness. In contrasting the condition of the nninno itructed blind, with the high attainments and quan lifications of tho pupils then before him, he used be the well k nown lines of Grey:? " Fall many a gem of purest ray serene, eg The dark untathom'd caves of ocean bear; m Full many a flower ia bcrn to blush unseen, lie And waste its fragrance on the desert air.'' f" The impressive manner with whieh these lines "J were quoted, and their striking applicability to the I blind, touched a chord in every heart, and called forth applause from the whole audience. In eon? elusion, ne expressed his entire confidence that the er citizens would contribute generously for iheesta'*> bliabinent of an asylum for the blind in this city. The following resolution was proposed and uuani"r mously adopted:? ? Rttolvrd, That we, the citizens of Louisville, who "? have had the pleasure of witnessing the exhibition of lat ko. n .U,.),!.!

Mr. Looms introduced a bill in relation to th< publication of law reports. Mr. Weir introduced a bill in relation to the so ciety for the punishment of juveniles and delir. rjuentsin the city of New York, which was laid ot the table on motion of Mr. Humphrey. Mr. H gave notice of his intention to introduce a bill ir relation to the assessment of taxes on personal pro p?tty. The consideration of the General Election Law was then reaumed. Mr. Smith, of Genesee, moved to strike out th< clause allowing the naturalization of foreigners or election days. Mr. Dix hoped this would not prevail, as it had L.MJWU iiiiv a Kriinni uajgc iui cnrub iu uidAr lliril declarations of intention to become citizens on thai day. By the act oi Congress, they were required to renew that on the second year, and for the nexl iwo years at any rate, if this clause was stricken out, it would therefore be very onerous. Mr Starr thought the right of citizenship should not be granted to those who considered it ol so little value, as to put it off until election day, and thus oblige our courts to be kept open for that purpose ilone The debate was continued to the same purporl ay Messrs McMuRhav, Simmoxs, Stroma, Powtti and others- It am <unted to talk, and the occupation oi an hour and a half of the time of the House. Mr- Starr, said that his maiu objection to this dause, was, that he did not wish to place the reason "or availing theimelvea of this glorious rigtn, solely jn the ebuliiion of election excitement, when every nie was pulling and hauling the foreigner to get his rote for one party or the other. It was on higher ind more holier grounds; reasons that should govern hpm every day, that he wished to place it, and he ;ei;erated what he had said, thai a person who deerred to avail him-elf of this privilege until the lection day, was no' worthy of being a citizen. Mr. Swackiiammf.k replied in a speech, which, ilihougha would draw a rout ing and hearty three imes three from a meeting in the Sixth Ward, yet lid not appear to be appropriate to the legislative mils. In the cour-e of his remarks, Mr. S made mine allusion to Mayor Clark's treating emigrants ike animals, previnting them from landing, and 'loving them from our 9horis with a long pole. Mr Smith replied, and made the remark that he lad no doubt, that gentleman found it necessary rerytfien teetir up the animals with a long pole, a order that they might be enabled to show their latures. Mr. Sw tcKHAMMER arose, and in a very warm and inimated manner, declared that the nature of the least would show itself. Wherever a federal bank whig can be provoked to express his opinion, it was tlways to be found against the foreigners. He stignatizes them now as animals?amimals to be stirred ip with a long pole. That gentleman had once apiliedto him a very ungmtlemanly epithet?he called lim an ass The gentleman was welcome to all the idvantages he could obtain trom his association with long-eared animals. To him and his party, he [Mr. S.) would apply the term by which that vile tmalgamation, that was neither an at* ?r a horse, was known?the mule. To him particularly would le apply it, as the leader, or would-be leader of the imalgamated federal whig party. The name of ederalist was too good for him and his party?they ihould, and they will hereafter be known as the ' pipelayiog" party. Here the Speaker called Mr. iIwackhammer to order for personality, and he ac:ordingly took his seat. Mr. Smith hoped the gentleman would have been tllewed te proceed. As to the expression, the gentlenan had charged him with applying to him (an i8a) he ownea he had unwittingly done so, and perectly was he now convinced, 'that he deserved it. Is to the cognomen of " pipe-layers," he sppretended that the party which now embraced in its old such men as Jonathan D. Stevenson, and James 1. Glentworth, would come in for at least a share of be opprobrium. Mr. McMurray, in a most eloquent manner, de ended Jonathan l>. Stevrunon, and his character, iad denied that Glenfworth was a member of the lemocratic party Mr. McM reviewed the course he whig leaders had pursued towards this degraded man, their dup|. Mr. Smith demanded the names of those leadersMr. McM. said they were known throughout the and, and he should not pollute his lips with their tames. Mr. Gecut called the attention of th? house, and ed the course of the debate back to the subject unler consideration. The debate on striking out was lgniu resumed, when the question on striking out was lost. The section as adopted, places the elec:ion day,so far as judicial proceediogsflare concerned with the exception of naturalization, on precisely the same footing as the Sabbath. Mr. Humphrey offered another amendment, which he said would more effectually coverall th a ground. It proposed to strike out the whole of {he fourth and fifth section, and extend the exemption 10 as to aliow prisoners on jail limits to vote, and prevent the possibility of a man's bring arrested while on his way to vote, in passing through another own. It was laid on the table, to be introduced when the bill should come up in the House. The rommittee then rose and reported progrrss. In the Senate to day, Mr Hockee presented the rrjeeedinus of a meeting of the citizens of Dutchess rounty, in relation to the New York and Erie Hail toad. The principal part of the day wasoccupied u the debate of the repudiation resolutions. Mr. made another long speech on the subject, tome private and local bills were also passed over.

During thirty-five years' absence from Er.gind, being the period elapsed aince I was comIcting my education there, I found almost a new irdicfne had sprung up, a net-tun negation, under the ex nding and wholesome conquests oi the Baconian philo>phy, which holds, it may he said, the juilt wiilitu or jnipoise or inductive reasening;between the tlnc-spun [( tractions of theory and an undue multiplication of mhairasting details.

I visited the Irish capital, Dublin, and found there her schools wel!-ordi-red, her hospitals maple, and her prc1 fcssors maintaining that high rank for which they have ever been so celebrated. Here I was welcomed not only with the courtesies which 1 had elsewhere received,but w ith all that warmth ' an 1 fullness of Irish heart and Irish hospitality which must be seen and felt to bo enjoy ed. 1 can never erase from my memory the homi-likc cordiality, the touching I attentions, the almost brotherly aifection and endearments which with pridigal generosity were opened to ! mo at every dear.

Finises?BAROS Lakrit. We have purposely deferred until this place, noticing | the most extraordinary man, pet haps, of all the great J men of our profession congregated within the walls of 1 Paris. We mean the celebrated Baron Lurrey, the conj slant fiiend and companion of the Kmperor Napoleon I diiring;fcll his memorable campaigns, from that time when iortune set mid forever to perch en his eagles, till, i in the revolution of events, the glories of that great 1 commander set forevor on the field of Waterloo. At tl e age of almost fourscore, this veteran in sur; gery, having survived a hundred campaigns, reposes I upon hit laurels in his favorite capital. Did ever any 1 ' man, in ancient or moJern,times, witness the one-tenth i or one-hundred .h part oi the bloody scenes of battle that < ; he has participated in ! What surgeen has ever looked ; upon, and been in the midst of such awful carnage ! 1 i From the burr ing sands of Egypt, to the frozen snows of ' Russia, and the final close ofthe drama at Waterloo, he ' was ever by the side of bit beloved chieftain. He told me on one occasion?for 1 may with pride say ' that 1 erj >yi d the intimacy of this great surgeon, whom 1 Napoleon,in hit will and elsewhere, often spokeof as r ' the best of men"?that for twenty years of hit life he ' slept,itmay be said, on thesamestraw, and was wrapped ' in the same cloak with hit great master. 1 I very much question whether any man since the days 1 of Ambrose Pare, ever enjoyed the confidence and 1 esteem of the whole army as much as Larrey. This I myself have witnessed again and again in his walks through the hospital of the celebrated lnvalidesat Paris, of which he was surgeon in-chief. It was delightful to ] behold the almost religious veneratiou with which his old companioasjin arms receivi d and welcomed him as lie passed from bed to bed. The eyes of these decrepit warriors would glisten with joy at his approach} and, if ad from suffering, he would cheer their drooping rpiri'.s * by reoounting to them some memorable victory in which d they had both participated. I have heard him sound in J! their ears the magic words, Lodi! Marengo ! and Aut- 1 terlitz ! and Mont Tabor ! and the effect was electric and wonderful. It was like the neighingof the warhorse at the sound of the trumpet. Can this be wondered at, when they saw in the person of Larrey the I very form and figure?" the counterfeit presentment"? I of their great Captain 1 and when they saw and knewtoo, that the favorite tri-cornered chnpeau which Larrey wore on his head as he walked from ward to ward, was that identical hat, made for and worn by Napoleon ] himself, and by him presented to Larrey, because, ] as Napoleon delicately remarked, it teemed to fit him i best. This incident of the present of the hat was related to < me by Baron Larrey on oneoceasioo, when I was accompanying him thtough tho Inv slides, when he pleasantly transferred the hat from bis own head to mine,and addi d that that hat Napoleou had worn. As an illustration oi hit immense experience, he told me that he amputated fourteen arms at the shoulder jiint the morning after the battle of tVagram, and that he pel formed more than two hundred amputations after the battle of Austerlitz ; and persevering in his iffbrts to [ relieve the wounded soldiers, hit kxife fell powerless from his exhausted hand. Nothing shall 1 ever cherish nearer to my feelings in my reminiscences of ran*, than the many an<l delightiulcimversatious which I enjoyed with this trujy virtuous and most estimable man. I tocollcctcn one occasion at his house, while speaking on the subject of the wealth of professional men generally, he stated to me with great frankness that be was comfortable, hut that his means were not ample. He said with much energy and emphasis, "1 have often had it in my power, had I i availed mysell of the opportunities that offered, to have amassed as princely a fortune as Dnpuytren, who left more than three millions of francs " He said that, after the conquest of Germany, Napoleon told him to go to the great capitals of that country, then subjugated to his imperial sway,and takefrom the museums.cabinets and , collections, every object that he desired that in|any way pertained to his profession. Larrey replied that nothing there belonged to him, and that he could take nothing ; showing an ingenuousness and delicate aense of honor, and a acrupulous honesty, which have ever marked and (till characterize thia great man. Hia invaluable surgical memoirs of the varioua campaigns af the Emperor are too familiarly known to require particular eucomiums. I asked him whether we should not have the last volume brought down to the memorable events of Waterloo. He replied with much feeling, '' I could not do that." Remarking of that fatal battle, he laid that oa the night of the third day, when all was over, and while absorbed in attendance upon the wounded, in the confusion and darkness of the night, alike assiduous as he was to fiiends or enemies, two English soldiers espied him by the glimmering light ol the night-lamps, and cried out, ' Here's Napoleon !" They seized him immediately, believing that tney had captured the Emperor. They treated him roughly and , dragged him over the ground, by which he was wounded in the forehead anil bled much, his long black locks. I as he always wears them (so peculiar and well-known,) 1 matting in dishevelled masses over hia face. Thobru- < tal soldiers, intoxicated with their supposed prize, and j maddened with victory, declared they would kill him. j An English officer,passing hy at this moment,accosted thim, and hearing their story that they had taken NaI>oli on, instantly recognized the person of Baron Lirrey and directed them to release him immediately. But for this, the Baron told me, hi* life would hare been sacrl 1 iced.
