The Acadia reached 1 tost on early yesterday inon mg, bringing our fall tiles, to the 3d of July inclusive. We subjoin all the leading news in our correspon dent's letter. Tut. Ma rile re ure dull and without change. [Corrt'ipoiidcnce of thr llenitl.] North an 1 South American t.'oth<' IIou?c, l.ondou, Monday evening, Jul* 1-ti. \not her Attempt to Aunvlnntr the Utieen? Important !\iwh from India and t lilnn.? Sicklies, of Sir llobt rt Perl. \Vre fake advantage ot an Lxpress trom this to Liverpool, to send you details of all the most imporlunt and latest intelligence, and which will be conveyed by the North American Mail Steamer Acadia. 1 hiring the whole of yesterday and to-day London h is been in the utmost excited state,in consequence of the apprehension of another individual who is believed to have intended un attempt on the Qu. ",,'b life, and this within but a few hours of her .Ma sty's royal clemency having been extended to ?,ii ^ u:c mail I iautis, W1IUII1 MIC Held UUIJUM i-lived iroin the severest penalty of the law. The iik ii^ter charged with this third attempt, seems to >oiu.-' misshapen fiend, whose appearance oni\ bears comparison with the foul deed with which he - ( ins desirous to have distinguished htnisell. Jt w - on her Majesty's return from the Chapel Royal, yesterday,that the wretch seems to have intended h'ta purpose; but the whole affair seems so truly revolting and opposite to the national character, that we can scarcely bring our minds to credit the truth. We have an India Mail with dates front Bombay to the 2.'Jd of May, and submit the following as the host outline ol the intelligence conveyed We re,nice to state that, although the events which have occurred since the dates ol our lart advices are not of so striking a character as those of which the news lias communicated by the last - \ mails, the intelligence is, on the whole, highly satisfactory. i >ur new- from China is to the 4th of April. Tli p;,'orations for the defence by the Chinese of the i:\ r l>-; v. ecu Wlumpoa and Canton were still in rogress, although now nearly completed, and their olVic rs were unremitting in their exertisns to pratt i - e their urtillery-inen in the use of great guns. Xingpo had been attacked on the 18th March 1>\ a Chinese force, estimated >u from 10,000 to 12,(Kill men Tiiev were allowed to enter the town without opposition, hut on reaching the market place, were on all sides by our troops, and instantly routed. About 250 are saic to have been left dead on lie field, while on our side not a single casualty look place. This appcats to have been only part of a concerti d attack, as at the sante time fire-boats were launched and an attempt was made upon our gerrion of Chinhae, but in each case with signal ill success. Several skirmishes had taken place along the < ".-i, but with no decisive result, althouge in each the enemy had suffered considerable loss. More vigorous measures were, it is said, in contemplation, and h movement to the northward w hs intended npon the arrival of the exacted reinforcement. Trade appears to have been carried on us usual, but with the exception of cotton, not upon remunerating prices. Barter was only means of commercial intercourse. : : \ fl j hanistan we learn that General Pol loi-k huil uiTivi'd ut Jellulabad, relieving Suit* unti the heroic garrison of that fortress, on the 16th ot April. He had experienced but little opposition on his march, < xcept f rom some roving tribes,who had only succeeded in cutting oil a few camels, and huil even been able, when assured of Sale's safety, to detach a part of his forces to the assistance ot t. friendly chief. Col. Bolton's brigade also, had been unable to overtake Generul Pollock in time to accompany him through the Khyber passes, had; with the assistance of our Seikh auxiliarir: ami u reinforcement detachi d from Jellulabad, veu hed Ali Musjib without difficulty, and would probably arrive at Jellulabad about the 5lh of May Colonel Bolton had under his convoy a heavy com nus-ariat train and some artillery, all of which Inn thro a Jed the passes in safety. The system of pur chasing the aid of the Afredis and other predatory tribes appears to have worked well. The combined lorres would, it was supposed, bavi in tint lined their present powtion until about the tit of June. The intelligence of the force lately under Colonel Paltn<-r of Ghuzni is scanty, but prepared as wr were for its utter destruction, it is in some degrei satisfactory. It appears that he left the citadel 01 the Jtitli of March, and took up his quarters in a portion of the town. There, as in the case of Cabul. the i i ha zees, apparently without orders, attacker the troops, and a frightful slaughter ensued. Tin leadr r of the insurgents, Hiumshoodeen, interfeared, anil took the officers under his protection, anr they are described as now living as prisoners in th< citadel. About IUO only of the seapoys are suppose) to have escaped. < ?eiK-r*l Knglund had, it was believed, succeedet in relieving General Nott, at Candahar. At llykul /ie. the scene of his former rebuff, he had attackei the enemy's position, and carried it withoutlose of; single mail. .M nor Reid had reached lUdur with a valuable covoy of treasure and 800 camels, with which In was to ascend tli" Bolun paw on ..the 3d or 1th o; May. The news from Cabul corroborates what we hat before respecting the death of Shah Soojah. although nothing certain was known of. the natun ot the authority by which his rule, such as it was, succeeded. With respect to the survivors of the C'ahttl loro who are prisoners in the hands of the Affghans, the most satisfactory intelligence had been received? i apt. M'Ken/ie, one of their number, had been per mitted by Akhbar Khan to visit the camp at Jellula Iihi on parole, as the bearer of a dispatch from Ma ior I'ottinger, and to treat for the ransom of his com panions. He brought news of the death of <>enerul lilpliiuatone on llie 23<l of April. The other prisont r- were doing well, and had been treated with considerable kindness. It is said that nn enormon- ] sum had been demanded for their ransom, but the 1 terms were not known, although Captain M'Kenzie had returned to the Affghan camp with the answei t to the proposals with which he hed been intra? ted. i The Commercial Intelligence from India is o! very unfavourable character. Freights for shippint 1 are in the most depressed state, und, indeed, even J thing seems at n stand still. In reg.ird to the articl t of Cotton, in which America is so deeply intero; 1 ed, the following are the latest particulars Corrov.?Soon after the departure of the last mai| the cotton market became firmer, and an advanc of 2 and 3 rupees per candy took place in the prtcof most varities, Suraf and Hroach being purchase at 94 rupee*, Oomrawuttee at 85 rupees to 9f>4 rupee and Itollera and Cogo at HI ru|?'es to 85 rupee Prices have continued to rise, and those now cut rent are a- followst?Hroach and Surat, 90 to 111 rim ;es; Oomrawuttee, 80 to 90 rupees; Dolleri 8J to 9 rupees ; Barsee, 75 to 77 rupees; ComptH 70 to 75 rupees; and Porachee, 75 to 80 rupees Tin* advance in prices has been in a great measur caused by the detention of the cotton hoaisexpeci ed from Hroach, See., bv the prevalance of tinlavoi nhle winds. terest, if we except the publication of a royal ord nance in France, itrt|>osing an -d valorem duty of'iii l?er cent on all linen yarn imported into the kingdom. As m ty be expected, such a revolutionary measure has produced great stir with English manufacturers, but it is expected the French government will submit to an amelioration. Throughout England, we rejoice to say, there i; an increasing disposition to maintain the inert 'm ..:' v re.' tnuiship with the United Sluteaof America, ai I ii" i ''Iter etidenceof this can be neede haii ihe iiiretiu^ ot the British Association of Science at .Manehe; t< This society numbers all tinlending characters ol tin- country in its li.-t of mcmhers; and we i lance the cordial exhibition el good feeling towards America, so strongly marked in its reception of Mr. Everett, as the highest compliment that coul l possibly have been paid. All seemed to vie with each other in rendering honor to the American Ambassador. In England, the greatest manufacturing and commercial distress continues to exist, hut most well disposed parties seem inclined to trace this to the over creative power of machinery, than to any other cause. There has been extreme depression of late, owing to all parties having withheld from busi ness operations until the passing of the tariff bill enables them to see clearly what steps to take in their matters of regular business and speculation. The taritV being now settled, of course such causes are removed. The proceedings in Parliament have possessed no very especial interest, business having been devoted to the income tax and the new tariff questions, both of which arc now pursed. It is expected that the businc: s of the session will be brought to a close about the 2<Uh of this month. The long-expected ordinance for an increase on the importation of linen and linen-threads has at length been published by the French Government. A new ministry lias bet n formed in Spain. In Portu. gal the electors have gone against the Government. AxoTinn: Attempt to Assassinate the Qt ekn ?The convict Francis, who tired at tire Queen, has been reprieved. There docs exist a doubt that the pistol was loaded with a destructive substance. lie still asserts that he had not intended to injure herMajestv, but did it with 11 view to get provided with 11 home lor life similar to that of Oxford, lie will be transported for life to a penal settlement. The announcement of his reprieve had scarcely been made known when the public were alarmed by a report that another and exactly similar attempt had been make upon her Majesty's life. Thedeiaib ure almost too farcical for notice. It appears that as the royiil cortege was returning on Sunday from the Chapel lloyal, in St. James's, to Bucking hunt Palace, u deformed youth presented and sua|>ped an old rusty pistol at the carriage in which her majesty was seated. He wu seized by another youth, who wrested the weapon from his hand, but the policeman in attendance refused to take him in charge, believinti it to be a houx, on which he was permitted to escape, lie was npprcliended in the course of the day, when it was discovered that h had recently and repeatedly been heard to say that he admired the conduct of Francis, and regretted that lie had not succeeded in the attempt; that Francis was a brave fellow, and that lie wished he had been iu Francis's place, for he would do for tho Queen; thet he had a prime air-gun and pistol, and he would use them in the same cause. The pistol had an old flint, lock with screw and rifle barrel.? lTpon detaching the barrel, which was done wit, some difficulty, from the screw having become exceedingly nifty, owing to its long disuse, there were found in it a portion of very toarse powder, n piece of tobacco pipe, and some paper wadding. His motive is supposed to be thd same as that of Fran cis. The Weather and the Crops?I'rom all part.of England, Ireland,rnd Scotland we hear of copious falls of rain, accompanied with thunder and lightning, after a lang continuance of warm weather J The crops are said to be forward and promising,ant! i through them, in some places, rapidly improving,and giving fair reason to expect, if not an abundant harvest, at least an average one of corn, potatoes, and hay. A London paper, the Lritifh (Juccn, states that during the last few weeks the Premier's health ha become materially impaired, and that his indisposition is making alarming strides. 1>eaths.?Old Coke of Norfolk, Sismondi th historian, Justice Littledale, and Fir Wm. Ale.\ ander, are dead. Fred. Yates,the aetor, died in London, June21st. Sir Robert Peel is said to be dangerously ill. British TAittFr.?Thebill incorporating the tarili has passed its third reading in the Ilonse ol Com mons, and as it will probably not be delayed in it, passage through the House of Lords, it wii it will soon take its place among the statute laws ol the land, along with the Income Tax Act. Oppenheimer \* Co. of Hamburg have failed. Considerable inconvensence has arisen amongst die trading community by the government having issued their proclamation for cutting and defacin; light gold, as the greater part of the sovereigns it circulation and all the half sovereigns have Ic weight by friction. The indisposition of the people to render themselues lfable to the loss, occasioned or some time a scarcity of silver; but the currenaj is gradually recovering itself. Orcnt Britain and Texas. The ratifications of die long-pending treaties he tween Great Britain and Texas were exchanged at two o'clock on Tuesday the 38th inst., by the Ear 01 Aui-rai'irn. plenipotentiary 01 ' >rt'ai itruain, an the lion. Aslibel Smith, plenipotentiary of the Rel>uhhc of Texas. These treaties are three in number:?a treaty Oj amity, navigation, and commerce? a treaty undertaking mediation by < ">reat Britain between the Re public? of Mexico and Texa ?and a treaty granting reciprocal right of search for the suppression of the African slave trade. Tljey were negotiated in IS |0, and concluded i 1 November of that year by Viscount Palmerston and (ieneral James Hamilton. The powers to rat if) the two first have been a considerable time in Kngland, but their completion has been delayed unti lie ratifications of the treaty granting the righto earch could be simultaneously exchanged. Art. 1 The Republic of Texas agrees that if, bv means of the mediation of her Britannic Majestv,an unlimited truee shall he established between Mexi un:l Tex ts within thirty days alter this present convention shall have been communicated to tin Mexican government b.v lmr Britannic Majesty'r mission at Mexico, and it within six months from tin day on which that communication shall have been so made, Mexico shall have concluded a treaty of peace with Texas, then and in such case the Republic of Texas will take upon itself a portion, amounting t ? one million pounds sterling, of the capital of the foreign debt contracted by the Rcpublii of Mexico before the 1st of February, 183.r>.

Liverpool Corn Market, July 4.?Having very few buyers at our Corn Exchange to-day, and no impulse from other markets to enliven the trade, the transactions in w heat, being confined chiefly to serve the w ants of our local millers, were very modi-rate in amount; prime qualities, hours er, w hich are much less plentiful than other descriptions, were held at prices little short of our Inst quotations, w hilst the general runs of free foreign, which Inrm till-hulk nt the diiinlv were ,Wide.IIv -3,1 et.esne. T11r Tka Tannic.?The China news has not had any particular el lee t on the London tea market, though it serves to conlirm the steadiness that has characterised it for some time past. The business done lately solely by private contract has been to a very fair extent, and the deliveries last month were highly satisfactory. The letters from China will not reach till next week. On the 30th nit. the stock of tea in London wrs 32,187,796 lbs. and at the corresponding date of last year 27,048, 221 lbs. The deliveries this year have been 17,615,837 lbs, or an int rense over those to the correi|>onding period in 1841, of nearls 600,000 lbs. The imports have greatly increase)!. The Operations ol* the French Government In Steam Navigation. The arrival of the French steamer of war, Gomer, in ottr harbor, looking at the results that will emanate therefrom, may be considered one of the most important movements that has taken place for many years, so far as the trade and commerce ol this city is concerned; as it is also one of the most imj.ortant measures connected with maritime and commercial affairs, ever set on foot by the French government. Some few months since, it will be remembered, that we gave first intimation of this movement, together with all its leading features and details. We have it from authentic sources, that ever since the establishment by < Ireat Britain of their various lines of steamers to this continent, and its adjacent islands, the French government, jealous of the ascendancy and advantages which such a movement gives to Great Britain in this part of the world, and watchful of the true interests of her own commercial and maritime interests, turned their earnest attention to a careful investigation of the whole subject, and after a great deal of deliberation in th" cabinet, this steam ship of war has been sent out by the French government as the pioneer in the great and valuable enterprise they intend to carry out. The several lines of British steamers to and from the southern parts of this continent and the West India islands, are in the greatest possible confusion ; and this result is utterly unavoida oie, owing io ine complicated nature 01 meir arrangements made by the British government in relation to their lines of steam vessels of war. And the best way for France to act in thi< undertaking is to avoid the errors of their great ri val, establish a few lines of steamers direct front some principal [tori at home to some principal (>oit here, and run them with regularity, certainty an ! all necessary dispatch. Thus they may avoid lh<* confusion and great loss sustained by the British lines of steamers to this country; as the more com plicated the parts of a machine are, the more babbit is to work wrong, or get out of repair; and vire verm the more simple its construction,the more like, ly it is to work with regularity, ease and cer tainty. Let the French Government, then, simplify their arrangements for navigating the Atlantic by warm other steamers. And as a matter of course, let them make New York one of the principal ports of destination for those vessels on this side the Atlantic.? We have in this city the greatest facilities for fostering and perfecting such an enterprise; and if an\ nfthp nfliL?pr? nnnnpntfil u/iflt tlila ovnorltf'iAn wont any information on commercial affairs, we shall, ourselves, he very lmppy to furnish them with it, in asintich as we have more valuable information, sta tistics, and details connected with this subject, us well as every branch of commercial affairs, that any other establishment in the country. The Administration of JrsricK.?We are sti' daily hearing numerous and heavy complaints in relation to the administration of justice in this city, which complaints we have good reason to know arc hut too well founded. How longthis state of thingis to continue, or whether we are ever to have a radical change therein, or otherwise, becomes a matter of great moment to every good citizfn and lover of order, justice, and n perfectly pure administration of the laws. We know that great efforts have been made in ertain quarters of late to improve the morale of th idministration of justice in New York, andtogiv to it a proper degme of dignity, integrity and intelligence in all its departments. And so far, the effort >f those thus acting, are highly commendable and iraiseworthy. Rut all concerned must pull togethe 1 this matter, or nothing permanent or beneficial m be accomplished. It will not do for one branch >f the administration of justice in this city to pull >ne way and one nnoth r ; for one to be taken u; wi:h this or that speculation or folly, and another t< he intensely occupied with this or that business, bubble, political manoeuvre or juggle. The efforts of un honest Grnnd Jury?may do much to improve the administration of justice. The well-regulated exertions of our Common Council may do more. And ifthem nothing to check or counterbalance their exertions, we should have hopesofa thorough and wholesome reformation ii this matter. But when we see judges of high court.?senselessly forgetting or ruthlessly regardleas o; he respect due to the station they may occupy foi ne time being, and of a decent regard to public ipinion?coming down from their .-eat on the bench ntering tiip dirty arenu'of polities,and mixing them selves up in the small business of peddling out penn\ newspapers, we certainly (begin to despnir of ever seeing any improvement in relation to this most imi.>rtaiit matter?th- administration of justice in this city. Pitch a movement as thin is certainly one of the Urangest and most pitiable spectacles that ran poe<ihly he conceived. Here we have, for the last si* years, se.-n the most miserable and impotent rreaures imaginable engaged in this same business? tailing pwr after paper?sometimes a dozen in a /ear?the average life of each not being three n inths ? rising to-day and setting to-morrow, full of Vppid, otisc.'ne, disgusting trash?eondncted In reaturea without mind, without talent, fact, intelligence or pidgment of any kind, saving only to in ivase crime, create confusion in the community, md setting all decency, order, and law at utter defiance. AH tins is too notorious tobe questioned ; and too lisgraceful not to be deplored. And when, in addition to all this, and in pretty much the same categoy, a high and responsible judge, forgetting all self esnect, all the respect due to those laws he is sworn mu entrusted to administer?throwing off the ernine?rushing into this polluted arena, rolling ii| ns sleeves,as it were,and going to work with all the jnsto of an old prize fighter, publishing the same decriptioo of garbage, the same nonsense?the same niseiable twnddle?full of egotism, had grammai ml worse morality?talking of his early fights?hi* lisgraceful broils?hi? "first duels"?bis disgusting lolitical squabbles. tricks and juggles?it makes us rrieve fui the weakness of poor humanity?for the intastic tricks of old dotards in their second childoo I, and gives us but sorry, sorry hopes of any fieetual r Tcrmation in rair a'Jmini->trafion of ju? ice. This siihjeet is so important to the morals and vell-h< ing of thr community, and we possess so isny facts throwing light on th? subject, that we | lml! continue it at ? future day. stand that the Rev. Mr. Swan, one of the mo j pious, eloquent, and fashionable preachers of lh. t ue respectable, wealthy, and numerous class of our f< ,le low citizen*, called Baptists, has arrived in thtscii ' 0 from JMonington, where he has been doing a vei th extensive business in the way of salvation, 1 which in due time he will doubtless reap his rewar q, ' " if he faint not." w Last Sunday, Irom a beautiful green ban! lh ' which formed the e '.gepf a picturesque grave yan Ju which was itself on tho edge of the eversoundin qn sea, ^lr. Swan baptized oviM" BO souls and bodb' '* some of whom were over 60 years ol age in hi. H< inanity, and 100 years old in iniquity. The seen ' was in itself truly sublime, and it wasequully health; i ^ and refreshing for the body as well us the soul. 1' ev was a pleasant, cool day, the sun was shining si w,

renely, and wending his majestic way through th w| heavens, smiling on, and cheering all beneath il Ai influence; vast numbers had assembled to witnes 16 this wholesale immersion of humanity, and aseacli w soul, or rather body, was dipped in the wave, and came out again, the whole multitude simultaneous m ly burst forth in one loud choral hymn of praise to "j the Supreme, to Ilim who had washed them, urn' made them white through the blood of the Lamb- q< all sung to one of those magnificent old church tune th that sounded sweetly upon the sea shore. ai I On that day thirty had their sins and their panta oi loons washed, making in all about 160that hail bee tf washed inside Hnd outside during the stay of th " Rev. Mr Swan, in the briny waves at Stonington e' I harbor. Jj This Mr. Swan belongs to that peculiar class of clerical orators that have sprung up of late yearn. jn and who are ?o c learly personified by Elder Knapp [a and his school. p< At the same time, however, the llev. Mr. Swan n< 1 has more strength, more fire, more elegance, more c< coarseness, more wit, more drollery, more inches, s. more bone and muscle, and less fat, than Elder ri Knapp. Satan could bury Elder Knappin his own 1" fat on the great gridiron, in five minutes; but this 1 man he couldn't touch, for his grissle is too hard. We hope sincerely that the Rev. Mr. Swan may p do a great deal of good here, nnd convert many fo souls "from the error of their ways to the wisdom se of the mat." He is much wanted here in Wall 0? street and other places.- For since the departure c f Elder Knapp, that old sinner, Satan, has been in- ui creasing his energies, his exertions, and the number p> of his converts, to a most alarming extent,notwith a' standing the efforts of the Temperance Society; and tv we want some good muscular raw-bone specimen of t>' piety, like the Rev. Mr. Swan, to take hold of thp f old scoundrel, shake him heartily over one of hi* , own fires, and then send him to some fashionable re watering place to mend his manners. rv We therefore trust that the Rev. Mr. Swan may C< be announced in a day or two to preach at soxnc of w our most fashionable and celebrated places of wor- ci ship. His sermons will be full of flowers and fury, gc beauty and brimstone, saltpetre and sound sense, nitric acid and nonsense. Mr. Swan, we are happy to say, shaves at Jim ii . ...?l ?- ?> ...... i?.-i? j V'lOIll c, UHU OJUH I11IO llll|>V|iai|l 11 (IB lanni i place, it is? a most singular fact in the march of aniI mal magnetism, that the mere circumstance of his 1 shaving in that shop has had a most wonderful effi ct | on Jim Grant himself; it has made him a more st) i quiet, more finished, polished specimen of a shaver, and more pious and pleasant than ever he was, with pr out his ever knowing the reason why or caring | wherefore. And as he has made this shaving sho; his head quarters, we advise all to call and patroniz ? the same place ; for Jim Grant excels as much in Bi j shaving as Mr. Swan does in preaching?he shave * ! so quick, so smooth, so easy, and with so littte talk ih ing or egotism, that even Satan himself might b 'h well lathered and shaved here, and get his whisker y, or his tail cut to great advantage, and in a mucl more fashionable style thnn he could in any portio ')! of his own dominions " down below." ,1, ? ,0 Return of Mb. Van Bi kes-?Hts Prospects.? th We learn from Albany that Mr. Van Buren has re turned to Kinderhook, with a perfect convictio that he will receive the nomination of the democr; ni tic party for the next Presidency. JJj lie and his friends believe that neither Genera ju Cass, nor Mr. Calhoun, nor Mr. Buchanan, whntc Jo ver may be done at Washington or Paris, can hav te the slightest chance against Van Buren. I: Tennessee it was arranged to run Mr. Polk as Vic> ijj with Van, and Mr. P. was in this city a few week la ago, to complete the arrangements. The democru C{ tic leaders here laugh at the idea of taking up "Cuj tain Tyler," and we must confess, after what ha ?li been seen, there is little chance of such an event. *u The recent result of the elections in Louisiana j< has given great force and strength to these views ? That was considered a pioneer election for the fall. (tj| and the sweeping*majority gained by the locofoco w has given them great spirits. The revolution it ha that State may be justly attributed to the folly anabsurdity of the whigs in Washington, whocnnnoi so keep power, or manage public uffairs. The next Presidential race will, therefore, he probably nar ns rowed down to Clay and Van Buren. The first ia capital fellow, but represents sotnc bad principle.and measures?the latter is a very small pattern of n of man, but represents some good measures. In such I>c a dilemma, we think it 11s wise to forget both, and }v, smoke a good cigar. *h 1>r M ctt and Dr. Houston.?The following card R containing Dr. Houston's reproof of the assaults 'J' made upon him by Dr. Mott and his colleagues. v< has appeared in several of the city papers:?

Dut as there have recently been e.xhi- L bited evidences of a concerted movement on the j part of the Faculty of the Stuyvesant Instituti t?< School in this city, to crush the humble writer of w this notice, I am led to appear thus prominently be- n fore my brethren. Among the accusations preferred h< against me by the body to whom I have just refer- "v red .is the charge that I have not been regularly ed ucnted as a medical man, and that I am an imposter. In order to refute this charge, I submit the fol , lowing:? r " I hereby ftate that I have inspected the credentials o Alexander Houston, and coitifv that hehasrr gularly studied medicine and surgery at the University c: Olasgow.

Thinking he would prefer a city life ke came up to Vork with a "considerable smart" pocket full of money , and begun to look about him. He espied in the papers that a young man " of good address," Sec. having $M)0 to deposit for security, could obtain a situation at $U00 a year, as agent in " the passenger and forwarding business," and that he might repay himself, if he pleased, out of the profits as he went along, or wait till the end of the year, when it would be refunded. Apply to Robert Griffith Si Co. No. 100 West street, and 55 l'earl. He went to Mr. Griffith's forthwith, immediately struck a bargain, and emptied the contents of his own pockets into that of his new employer. He was short of the $500 something like $160, and w ent to Trotter (who was tne late Mayorof Brooklvn, and a friend of Mr. C.'s father,) and got him to lend kts check for $143, w hich he gave to Griffith, the bargain being " dirt cheap' at that.
