We ihink the latter has, therefore, sailed for Kogland. It i6 our firm opinion still, that the Caledonia put back to England, or into some port in the Western Islands. We shall continue of this opinion till the Acadia arrives, or till we have intelligence from Loyal to the same date, thence that the Acadia will bring from England, namely, to the 4th init.

Tonlaleiiirea Tniw Minis fnll II f* 11 . It is really painful to every lover of his country to nee the conduct of the members of Congress, the S'ate Legitlatures, end our City Council, during the past winter. With an empty treasury, the nation baukrupt, several:? tales bankrupt,and almost every city in debt, they seem one and all determined to do nothing to benefit the country at iarge, without respect to party. They appear to be all alike; there really seems to be very little difference between the whigs and locofocos; they are all quarreling, and fighting like children, calling each other all sorts of names, criminating and recriminating, passing a law to day, repealing it to-morrow, and apparently doing all they can todtrange and destroy the business of every honest man. Congress has been in session three months What has it done for the benefit of the merchant or mechan:ct What has the Pennsylvania Legislature alone 1 Made a law one day and unmade it the next. What has our Legislature done T Gone on a junketing' party to Boston, to congratulate the people there for having taken away the trade from New York. What has our Common Council done 1 Quarreling like school boys, and leaving their seats in a passion and the board without a quorum, and so stopping all public business. now, we am an seneiuie ana inarpenaesi men, whether it is not time for them to pause?cut loose From all parties?turnover a new leaf, and select for our city, 6tate. and national legislators, pure, honest, s nsible men, who will legislate solely for the common welfare of all?the greatest good of the greatest number?without respect to any party whatever. Or. Nelson end the Stnyvesant Inatliue? Medical School? 'Take Care of Number One." The most fashionable maxim of the present enlightened day is?"Take care ol number one!" This must be a good principle or else it would not be so universally adopted as a rule of human action. Kotten banks "take care of number one," regardless of the interests of their ill-fated victims?political quack-doctors "take care of nurber one,'" and care not how many thonsaads they roll up in bloody winding-sheets. Colleges of venerable grey-beards can also "take care of number one." The learned Faculty over which the illustrious traveller,-before whom Lemuel Gulliver and Thomas Thumb, make themselves scarce and vanish, presides with such urbane dignity, have considerable reverence for this profound and philosophical principle. We wifh to givH every one his due, and we therefore do not h? si.ate to say that the venerable Professor* of the Stuyvesant School ol Medicine, have a very decent re* opect for the important duty of seIf-preservation. Jn fact, we begin to entertain considerable respect for the sagacity of Dr. Mott and his coadjutors ? They're not silly. No! They are not, and we can natidactorily prove our confident assertion. How? do let ua hear 1 Well, some months since one Dr Nelso*?a name somewhat known in the annals ot the Canadian straggles? arrived in this city. He had tor many years attended to a very extensive practice in Montreal, and his humanity, skill, and benevolence had gained for him the veneration and love of all classes. But with many other excellent jnea Dr. Nelson was driven from his country, and obliged to seek shelter here. The reception with which, he met from his professional brethren, was marked by all that warm affection and disinterested kindness which so remarkably characterixe the enlightened physician? of New York. A number of Dr. Nelson's friends requested him 10 deliver a series of lectures on nhvainWv?? mi,, t interesting sod important science, which the dry arses of the Stuyvesant establishment very considerately deal out in homopoMhic dosej to their students. Dr. Nelson applied to Dr. Mott As Co. for the use of a room, in which to deliver his lectures, and was politely refused. Why ? The learned Fa culty " didn't wish to create any dissatisfaction amongst their students!" Kind and sagacious Faculty ! ordinary men?weak mortals, ignorant of the value of that glorious maxim, " take care rf number one," wou'd have granted Dr. Nelson'* request. But the gentlemen of the new school have arrived at the years of ditcreiion?in the expressive language of the vulgate, " they have cut their ye teeth " They knew that " comparisons are odiou.V' and with paternal regard for the mental rapose of their pupil*, they exclaimed in tones of heartfelt emotion, "We guess as how we won't let rival lecturers come here!" Are not the members of this Faculty wise in their generation 1 Have not they the nse of their faculties 1 But after all, we would like to have Dr. Nelson's lectures. The attention ol the nuSlie isstlaa beginning to We directed to medical science, the in- ' terest of which cornea home to " the bosom and bu- i ainesa" of every individual; physiology is a moat important branch of that science ; it ought to form a part of the education of all young masters and misses; and a more competent expounder of it, than Dr. Nelaon, cannot be found Come, Doctor, we're glad to find that the Slnyvesanl savans are all alive to their own interests, and that althsugh age has somewhat dimmed their physical vision, they have yet a clear apprehension of " numb) r one;" bat we want your lec'ures, and there is the editor of the Lancet ready to report them, and give them to every one of his three thousand subscribers!

While ihe "lloi(an affair" was under examination in that place, it was suddenly discovered that the Komua Catholic Pastor of Lockpnrt (the Rev. Mr Costello) hud actually been married secretly last September! contrary to the canons of the church. The lady wluse marriage with the clergyman oc casiuned the difficulty, is aaid to have been a Mies Mary A Jeffries. The knowledge of their union seems to have been suddenly made known or suspected on the 3d inst. The fact ol the secret marriage, we are informed, was not denied when charged on the reverend gentleman. On Friday morning, as we hear farther, a large number of persons belonging to hia church surrounded the dwelling of we Rev. Mr. Costello, and de* nianded the money in hia possession, which was alleged to belong to the society. Mr. Costello then sent for the Sheriff, and delivered the funds (said to l>e about ? 1,000) for depoaite in BankAfter deposiiiHg the money, the Sheriff returned to the houae of Mr. Costello, and remained in it to protect person and property against any violence that might be offcrsd by any of the indignant throng. For this information we are indebted to Pnmeroy & Co's Cxpress?by which we are frequently laid under obligation for late news from east and west. | w?r. ?? tnes, cunauciur 01 mat express on ttiia cccasion, informs us that the feeling which prevailed when he left Lockport rendered it not improbable (as some said) that the sheriff might be compelled to call out a force to guard agaimt breaches of the peace, either in this matrimonial matter, or oh the llogan atlair which threatens to bring thi8 country and Englaud once more at loggerheads,as in the case of McLeod. The story, so tar as the $4000 are concerned, is doubtless exaggerated by ramors. Aid it is to be hoped that further investigation will show that the charges are oiheiwise unfoundedSir Allan McNab.?This somewhat notorious individual spent three dsys concealed in the neighborhood of Brooklyn, last week ; and Irft for England in tht parktt ship Oxford, la?i Thursday, under the assumed name of Captain Johnstone. He had a narrow escape, and no mistake. Dr. Rolph, of Canada, was with him, and sailed with him. jnaciukod the seco>d, iielbased.?n appears that the Judge at Lock port, before whom Hogan was brought on a writ of habeas corpus, released him on the ground of informality in the warrant. But we cannot find out whether the populace committed any violence on Hogan, after his releaseThere is no doubt he was one of the Caroline gang. A Strasoe Stohv.? Sepahatiow or a Maw awd his Wire ?We glean the following details from the Westchester papers and our private correspondence, relative to the strange separation of the parties named, and about which we can make neither head nor tail. It appears that Mr. Miller, son of the rich old gentleman who owns the saw mills at the foot of Laight street, in this city, about seven or eight years ago married a niece of Mr. Wells, the rich old gentleman who owned the large granite buildings corner of Wall and Pearl streets, and owned 300 acres of land at Yonkers, and nearly all that village. MrWells, determined to do something handsome for his niece, it is said, gave her and her husband, two years ago, a note of hand for #20,000, payable three years afte* date. About four weeks ago he died. Mr. Miller and his wife (the niece) came on from New Jersey, where ihey lived, and attended the funeralShe remained behind a few days at Yonkeif, and he reiurned home. Soon after he reached hom?, news reached him that acme one waa circulating a slander about him that he had forged this note for $20,000 lie immediately returned to Yonkers, demanded the author, and demanded hia wife. She either refused to return with him or her friends refused to let her. He sued out a writ of habeas corpus to get the body of his wife, and the judge decided she was free to go with him. lie then took her up gently in his arms in the Court House,earned her out and put her in the wagoa ; her friends interfered, and he knocked one of them down- Finally they got her away from him. In connection with this part of the story we have the following proceedings of a meeting at Sing Sing:At a numerous and respectable meeting >t the inhabit tauts of the village of Sing Sing, held at tba Eagle Ho- < tel, on the i veiling of tlie third of March, to expreaa their opinion of the events in the cafe of Mr. Charles K.

Smith was called to the Chair, | H. B.Todd and J W Worth, were chosen Secretariea. On inition, it was resolved, that Mr. John Barlow, Russell Newell, and Joakin Urmy, bo appointed a committee to draft resolutiona txpreasivo of the sense of the ' meeting. I At the reqtif st of those present, Mr George W. Crofut I gave recital of the affair ai it took place, and according i to bis observation.

That thia meeting are of opinion, that Mr. Charle* K.

In accordance with the rrqurat, Mr. Miller entered the meeting and waa received with mnch warmth. It waa morrd and ctirried that the above reaolutiona be read again in the preaence of Mr. C F.

Soma ten or twelve t young men, who had been partaking of a dinner, ? with its accompaniments, or the accompaniments 1 without the dinner, while parading dewn Leonard 1 street, attacked and beat, in an unmerciful manner, i a poor, decrepid, colored woed-sawyer, who was t engaged in earning his small pittance by his hard f labor. They then passed to the house of defamation 1 kept by Julia Brown, and, on being refused admit- | tance, crossed the street, and attacked a cordwain- 1 er, who was standing en his own step, for the crime c of being in his shirt sleeves. The leader of the gang J received quite a strapping from the shoemaker, and ( for the purpose of defence drew a sword cane, which was knocked from his hand by a by-stander- A conflict then ensued, during which a colored man was stabbed through tne wrist, and an attempt made ' to stab a woman that w as accidentally brought into '' the aflray. Assistant Alderman Adams, of the Fifth i Ward, was then called, and, with the aid of officer j Cockefair, the two leaders, who were the principal ictors in the scene, were arrested, taken ?o the police office, and placed in the Tombs for a night's F lodging The persons arrested are sons of one of r the Professors ol the Medical University, whose ?, aaroes we omit nntil the examination and commitmeat has terminated. a Strongly SvsrwrrxD.?A man named David ^ Cochran was stopped in the street on Monday p night, by watchman Baily, with a coil of rope, p which it is suspected has been stolen.

Proceedings In (he Senate?Romors and Office-bolder s. In the Senate, this morning, Hon. Leonard Wilc x, Senator elect from the State of New Hampshire, in the place of Mr. Pierce, was then qualified ai J t.x>k his seat. Alter the presentation of petitions, reports were present* ii Itom commit ess, and several advorse ken from the table, and concurred in by the Senate. Mr. Skvieh introduced a joint resolution to pro- j vide for die op.K'intmtnt of a board of three commissioner*, to adjudicate the claims oi the Cherokeea east of the Mississippi river, under the treaty of lt?15and 1-56. which was read twice,and referred to the Committee on Indian Affairs. On motion of Mr Woonsuay, it waa resolved, that the Secretary of the Treasury be directed to lay before the b^nate a schedule of the expenditures for the fourth quarter of the year 1841, in a form similar to that adopted in the statement annexed to hie last annua! report for the first three quarters. The bill for the establishment of a Board of Eqchequrr came up as the special order for this day. Mr. Tal s remarked that he did nst wish that this bill should interfere with the resolutions of Mr. Ct.*r, and had therefore risen for the purpose, and made the motion to postpone the consideration of the bill till this day two weeke. [<he 21st of March,] which mot'on was agreed to. The District Basks. The bill to revive the provision of the act allowing the banks in the District of Columbia to receive and pay out the uotes of non-specie paying banks, came upasths order of the day. A dmnwisinn arose, which whs continued UDtoths hour of adjournment, without disposing of the question. Daring the last week two or three paragraphs were published in the Madisoniau containing some pretty distinct intimations to certain men high in office, that they were suspected of perfidy tswards the administration, and warning them cf the consequences. These paragraph excited some curiaaity here, and the speculations were various and contradictory as to the individuals aimed at. The conversation, on the subject, at the capitol and in the streets, was amusing and occasionally instructive, as indicating the wishes and expectations of men of different parties. For a day or two the general impression seemed to be that the admonition was directed to a couple of members of the Cabinet; hut reflection and a more carefnl perusal of the paragraph excluded that supposition. Then it was thought that the assistant post master general, who in the appointment office, and two or three heads of bureaus, who ought to have been removed a year am kiiH hppn Amt+o1ot\ inonm^ of f h f?i r mishnndur.t: dut there wu nothing definite or precise in the language of the Madisonian, and the conclusion finally arrived at was, that it was merely blowing up in the abstract, without intending to alarm any body in particular. What the facts are, however, is not known, but it is currently rumored that there are to be sevenl changes, and shortly too, among the heads of bureaus. That the public interest require such changes can hardly be doubted, and when the Pre side ut becomes apprised of the fact, he will need no prompting from any quarter. But his multifarious and most onerous duties so engage his attention that matters of this sort cannot at once be investigated. The character and conduct of the officers and the condition of the branches of the departments over which they preside, can only be ascertained after much care and scrutiny. (During the ast administration, flagrant and monstrous abuses were practised in the Indian departmenr, the whole :ountry rang with the accusations?every species if fraud and corruption was charged and proved ipenthe agents of the government in this branch if. he nublic service, and thus far but little has been lone to punish the guilty. What portion of the touae attaches to the Commissioner is not yet mown, bat it is hardly possible that he can be kept n office after the affairs of the department shall be horoughly investigated. One thing is certain?no ederal officer, no matter what may be his station, lis talents, his reputation or his services, will be >ermitted to hold a place under the government, to ong as John Tyler is at its head, after the slightest legree of malversation shall be proven against him. ^delinquents of every grade may as well be premring for removal. Honse of Representatives. The business of the House to-day has been disinguished by the characteristics of past days?soemn trifling; it was small in amoant, and small in mportance. Amongst other things, Mr. Everett ntroduced an amendment to the apportionment bill, vhich was ordered to be printed. Tee amendment irrpases to strike out 68,000, and insert 60,391 as the atio of representation, which will give 305 mem>ers, and no State lose a representative. The plan cecmpanying the amendment proposes 70,680 as tie ratio, which will give 217 members. The pro oauioR to remove me aeons irom me nuusc 01 ivcretentatives, was thrice made and thrice rejected; sme other important business papers were presentd, and the repert of the committee en the contiat nt expenses of the House was taken up. The first question was on the appointment of a lommittee on Printing, who shall determine what apers and documents shall be printed, on which nd some singularly inappropriate amendments, inch time was consumed. The resolution was ul* mately negatived. Many other motions were lade, and either negatived or declared to be out of rder. At length the House went into committee of tie whole on the state of the union, and resumed tie consideration of the Civil and Diplomatic Apirepristion Dill. The residue of the day's seseion i'aa consumed on an appeal and points of order, nd the House adjourned without having transacted ny positive business besides receiving and ordering o be printed- Mr- Everett's amendment to the Aportionment Bill, reserving a report from the Rerenchmeni Committee Respecting extra allowances o the officers of the Army, and a memorial proptinga plan to prevent the explosion of steam boilers.

Disagreemcnl between the Judg(i of the General Sessions ?Reception of Box. Dear Bewwett? Still are we without auj definite knowledge on the subject of the Bank Resumption Bill. Yesterday the majority of the Court of General Sessions held Willis H- Blaney, late one of the officers of that Court, to bail, in the sum of one thousand dollars, as an accessory after the fact, in certain extensive burglaries committed by the notorious Williamson, alias Webb. This judgment was delivered by Judge Doran, having been concurred in by Judge Conrad. After its delivery,the Fresideut, Judge Barton, said he dissented, and further stated that be had not been consulted by his colleagues. This is a queer state of things, and would seem to confirm the rumors in circulation of inveterate hosiility said to exist between the members (f the Coust. A sort cf fatality has aeemed to attend the personal harmony of the members of thisCourtfrom its creation. For some time personal hostilities were kept up by Barton and Conrad against Doran, and vice versa. This belligerent relation of the parties was maintained for some months, and frequently exhibited to the amusement not only of lh? bar, but of the spectators. Since the death of Judge Hopkinson, Conrad has deserted Barton for the camp of the common enemy, er else been surrounded and captured. Judge Doran is an Irishman, and capable of doing that aamo. However, voluntarily er otherwise, , Judge Conrad is now doing service in the ranks of ( his former opponent against his old associates, i There are many stories out in relation to this mat- | tor of difference. Among others, that both Barton aad Conrad aspired to the post vacated by the , death of Judge Hopkinson, (amusing idea) and hence a rivalry, that has apparently disturbed t their personal relations. There are some very | funny anecdotes in circulation in reference to the Court, some of which 1 may communicate. Boa to day received the young men " with hearts * in their hands," who requested, some days since, ' the honor of shaking hands with hi n. The scene came off at the United S ates Hotel, Col. Florence j doing the honors; and althoogh not costly, can , be said not to have been ridiculous. The idea of a t hundred or two men parading in front of a man, giving him a pump-handle shake, and then darting out el the room without saying a word, was rather ' broad humor, and Boz must have so considered it. i The Girard Bank officers, it is nndersiond, have t given np the hope of ever retusci atiog that col- , ?ern, and are about to leave the present costly ] building for a cheaper one on Walnut street. Peace te its ashes. Cast night the beautiful Mrs. Shaw, of your city, was announced to appear as "Constance," in the " LiOve Chair," but at the rising of the curtain, she was not forthcoming, and Mrs Sefton was snbstitu- ( ted, without any lo.-g, I have no doubt, to the audi- , ence in the performance of the part. , .
