It travelling up the MisuMippi, not many years ago, I was induced to visit a little island that dots that river, trom a motive of curiosity, which, in the end, was ahuadanily oratififd- Here T found a set of people, worthy, in tinny respects, of being classed aa a ffth race ; and who. menredlv, would not have escaped the physiological nomenclature of lilurnei.bich. had he ever visited the region iu qui atioa These tieopli?(who, by the wav, were e*trein-!y hospitable)??poke a peculiar dialect? ?Inch, though not to broad as that prevailing in some parts of Knglaad. w is nevertheler# of a char acter totally di?" vet fioin that of their cor? neghbors: a:id, indeed, offered a mark by which, any one who may have conversed with them for ten minutes at u time, would as readily recognise them in ivamsuhatka aa on the sands of their own little island. They we re, moreover, as "distinguishable iu member, joint, and limb,"aa they were in other and mor- important particulars, from the reFt of the inhibitants of that vast region?where every thing seems to partake of the mmensum infimlumque of Cicero. In features these people resemble each other ao much, that at a distance it was no easy matter to distinguish them ; and, even when near, unless you were well acquainted with them, it often puzzles you to know Paul from Peter, or James from John, tor " each seemed either." This singular resemblance t xtended even to the tones of the voice, and expression of the countenance, which were precisely the same in them all, or with such slight shades of difference, that a person, meeting them severally or in different places, or hearing them speak at the sime time iu difierent rooms, would believe either that his senses grossly deceived him, or that these people were possessed of the power of ubiquity?of being here and there and every where, at one and the same moment. There was, in fact, a sort of family likeness running through the whole race?so much so, and extending so completely to alt their persoual attributes, that I often wondered how they managed to distinguish themselves, one from another, and that " the faculty of seeing thing* oiu oj rigni, as lt- juaonon vui ma lour 10 me Hebrides) gravely dtfiaes the superstition north of the Tweed, called "second eight," should not belong, of all people in the world, to these Little Inlanders, and occasion among them more terror and confusion than ever did the new step, introduced by the Empress Josephine among the ladies of Paris. A very amusing and original character was pointed oat to me among these people at the time of my visit, a sketch of whom I shall reserve for another occasion.

In glanci ig over the harbor from one of the surrounding heights, I hate been delighted with the proapeet which it present*. Our vessels of war forma prominent feature in the riew. The apleadid ahip Delaware, which arrived three days a ioce, i the 8ium, which came in yesterday, the Potomac, the Concord, the Decatur, and the Marion, which have been upon this station for some time, constitute a fleet which may well excite feelinga of national pride. 1 queat,on whether an equal namber of vasaela of the same grade could be telectrd from any other naval power, which" would preient ?s handsome a diaplay. They are all of them in fine order, and do'credit to their commanders. The Delaware brought out Commodore Morris and the Secretary of Legation. The feeling which has been produced upon her arrival is likely to have a very favorable influence npon government here, and to restore that friendlyintercourse which I no. ticed in one of my previons numbers hud been somewhat disturbed by the unusual course pursued by the former i Commodore. Immediately upon the arrival of the Delaware she paid the usual compliineatof saluting the fortress'and eaeh of the foreign national.vessels in port, which were promptly returned, and soon afterjtheir commanders called upon Commodore'Morris,-and expressed the highest admiration of the appearance of his ship I was gratified to see the good feeling and spirit which waa shown upon the occasion, and particularly with the courteous bearing of our Commodore, who nmi tod no attention to convince his visiles ol the gratification he experienced in their eourtesy. The next day lie retu-ned their visits respectively, and I question if another officer in onr navy could have been received with more hearty uood feeling, or produced a more favorable impression. It is but justice to Capt.

I hare been omewhat amused to see the rapidity with which whiskers, raoustaehes, imperials, &c. hare disap peered, aud oar officers hare began to assume the appearance ef ciriiized beings. Some wry faces have been mde upon parting with their favorite and highly cherished ornaments, but the order being peremptory there was no alternative. Thtre is some talk of addressing a letter of remonstrance to the Department, insisting that the officers hare a right to look like babboons and savages if they choose?the opinion of the Secretary of the Navy to the contrary notwithstanding.

As your journal seems to be the mirror which reflects to the most distant parts of this country and the world, the maw c. intelligence collected from individual parti, mortification seizes upon me at not witnessing the moving events of our bright village chronicled therein. If you will allow one to inform you concerning the frolics of fortune, and the cabinet secrets of this place and its environs, I am the one that will do it. I will direct your gaze upon thore in the broad path oi honesty, upon those whs glide about with noiseless step to gain unholy ends, and upon the stumbling of some impatient, ambitious fools, who in a tempest are thrown to the 8uriace, bask in the sunbeam while the tempest lasts, and sink to dregs when it subsides; who, like i an exhalation, rise aud vanish. < There are some queer fish in " them digeins," J with some queer anecdotes hanging to their tails, as ever laughed dull care away, or brushed the cobweb from the brain. I can relate but one event at present, which relates to Morraonism. This is no laughing matter, as it touches upon religion, but it is our decided lion at present. Shortly after Christmas, a " latter day saint" was invited by a Camelite to lecture in the church for the purpose of giving or receiving a straitening After a dozen exhibitions of his strength, they thought he became unruly, and on motion of Thomas Jenkins, one of the co-operatiog disciples, he was " axed to quit " As is usual, persecution by a few is followed by the sympathy of many, and hit lectures afterwards were attended by crowds. f*l?a* 'til i torn to man MY. iTonpn"' i? a u[irotu/4 one, and possesses considerable knowledge of sacred hUtory, and though some were confounded, and othera were convinced, he labored some lime without inducing any to adopt his creed publicly: but a few days ago the ice was broken by the'moral courage of John H. Bunting, Esq , who openly acknowledged conviction, waa baptised before a crowd of 2000, and in coming up out of the waters poured forth an impromptu like one inspired, which shot a thrill through the bosom of all whose felicity it was to hear him.and had a tremendous effect upon the Camelites Mr. Jones has bee* for some weeks previous speakiag at the court-house. The Camelites have again lifted their mace against him, and on Saturday night, before a dense crowd, occupied the Mormons temporary pulpit; and, from docu- ( meats obtained from our " Extra Billy" in Congress, i attempted to denounce his creed. But never did a I warrior sell his life more recklessly, never did a i bull calculate so rashly when butting against a lo- < comotive, than did the Camelites in this instance j against the Mormon*. Mr. Jones did not attend, but hanJed the castle key .0 Mr. B. The mis- I take of the Camelites was, that though they were j aware of the giant intellect possessed by Mr. Reil, ; still thought they, he must tail upon such short ac- J quaintance of so defenceless a cause ; hut most la- ( minousty and ably did he defend it, and in reply to i some charge* made upon him of having denied his religion, such butpts of eloquence, boldand melting 1 rippled from his hps, aa drove some scoffers out of , the bouse ; and better would it have been for those , who made the charges to have had upen their fore- ( head a coal of fire, than to have endured his scath- | ing words, whea they tnemselves had denied the re- | ligion of their fathers, and been turn-coats of every , grade in organizing theCemelite church ( Last week, Mr. J. preached in the Universa- | list church iin Falmouth, and canard great excitement. Falmouth is a mile up the river, and is better known her# aa Hog-town, from K'a exhibi- < tion of the different breeds of hog# at Scott's corner. J It is a small village, with only one church, and ex- | cepting the various breeds of hogs, always kept on j hand by Mr. K., has little attraction. , There is no telling to what extent this Mormon J excitement will go ; if a humbug, then are we most egrrgiously humbugged, but if truth, then you must ' rejoice to see the cause prevailing.

Col. Roumfort, a member from the county, has introduced a illy project, eeeking a resumption through the indirect mode of prohibiting the banks from collecting their debts while inji state of suspension,unless they acknowledge themselres insolvent and make an assignment. I am one who think that legisla tares are the last bodies of men who should seek to an end in any other way, than a trank, open, direet one It should nut be afraid of speaking as openly to the banks as to individual?; and if it means that they sha'l resume it should say so. This mode of accomplishing an object?of curing one eril by creating another, is undignified,and shows a want of confidence in the justness of the object sought, wbiah should not be entertained in a great deliberative body. If pains and penalties are to be indicted, let them be applied to violations of laws which may be enacted, not to those that are past- Banks should be punished for not resuming in so many words, and not for loaning money, which under the laws they had the right to. The pursier of our Navy Yard is busily trying to negotiate a large amount of six per cest Treasury notes at par, with which to pay the workmen their wages, which hie been neglected for several weeks.

It is amusing to notice the great suspicion and jealousy that is evinced hy the country membera of the Assembly,, towards every thing coming from the New York delegation. The New Yorkers, it must be confessed are, somewhat prove to dictation, and assumption of superiority, especially where democratic principles are considered as being involved, and are rather apt occasionally to imagine that the city of New York is the whele State. Their locefocoism is too nltra, too rabid, if you like,for the timid notioas of men who hare passed it may be the greater part of their existence, in some quiet country town, fsr removed from the sweep of the violent snJ giddy eddies of the political whirlpool. Thus it is that we often seta them astounded and even shocked at some nltra proposition from the New York delegation.
