' Dear Bennett :? ] In the absence of your Lexington correspondent, ( * hose business has called him from the city for a I slmrt time, I have undertaken the task of keeping the j public inlormed, as to the manner of doing up things ( in our neighborhood. < Our election, which has just come otf, was not 1 canvassed upon any question of national |*>lilics,but the diversity of sentiment u|>oii local i|Ucstions, sucti us relief laws, &<*., gave great animation to the contest. Ainongsl the measures projiosed for the relief of the country from its deplorable condition, was the establishment of a Commonwealth Bank. This was one of the most prominent measures upon which Mr. Wendover, one of our most clear headed financiers, rested his claims to our votes; and for some days previous to the election, hissuccess was ao evident as to alarm our money lenders. They saw, in hissuccess, the inevitable and speedy end of their golden harvest, and forthwith took the stump against him and his bank. Rev.Dr. ??, who, it isthought, never before dreamed of charging less than 10 per cent per unnum for his money, intimated that in future his demands would be lowered to 5. Similar intimations were made by Messrs. H , B , C , and others; and so great was the influence of these gentlemen, or rather of their money, that Mr. Wendover was defeated. In religion, as well as in science, our progress is onward. Animal Magnetism is accomplishing wonders in our city. A young stranger, who recently came amongst us from parts unknown, and, who is giving leatures to our citizens almost every night, has explored this science so far as to be satisfied it was not wholly unknown in the days of the prophets. And Dr. C.. who is by no means an enthusiast, fancies that he sees, very distinctly, the traces of its footsteps in the miracles wrought in the days of the Apostles. The Clergymen are giving way to the lorce ot its truth, and some of them have succeeded in putting a large portion of their congregations to sleep in thirty minutes. Brother , a few days since, had great difficulty in arousing Ins in time to be regularly dismissed. Our Metnodist friends are doing well in their beautiful new church. Brothers C and D , are engaged, with laudable zeal, in striving to get up u revival before the meeting of the annual conference, which comes off in Lexington next month. My no- [ tice of the Methodist Church would be incomplete, j were I to omit a well merited castigation which they received at the hands of Mr Dearing the other day, on the subject of going in debt beyond their ' ability to pay. Oar Cumpnellite friends are always wide awake, and occasionally make inroads upon the other I churches, by robbing tliem of of a member?indeed I tliey seem to be fighting a little too much under the . banner of king numbers Their ranks have been , thrown into some little confusion by an aspersion cast by some one, upon the charactnr of one who it seems, is in the habit of walking inhiH sleep, and in one of his excursions in the dark,got into the wrong box. It is thought he may have been under the influence of Animal Magnetism. It wus announced last week that the Rev. Alex Campbell, was in the neighborhood, Hiid would preach in Lexington on Sabbath lust. At an early ] hour lhe College Chapel was crammed with ladies i Shortly after the service commenced, the stir about 1 the door indicated! be arrival of some distinguish ed 1 character. The aisle was at once cleared, and sign made to Mr. Campbell to stop, and presently Mr. Clay walked in. As lie approached the foot of the pulpit a scuffle commerced, in which the principal membereof the church took n part, for the honor of giving him a seat. The mosi sanguine hopes are entertained by the brethren, that ne may yet become a member of their church; and the day is anxiously looked for. when they will have the pleasing ceremony to perform of giving him the hand of fellowship. The object olMr. Campbell's visit .mongst us was to collect money for the support of a College he is building up. His stay was short, and his behavior to the pastors of our other churches was so conciliatory that they looked at each other as they passed in the streets like misehevious school hoys who had just been reprieved from a whipping Yours, Arc. Sa.m JVrcif, Jr. Hempstead. [Correipondenre of the Herald.] Hempstead, Aug. 10,1842. Pleasures of Hempstead?Ladies' Fair?Religion, #* James Cordon Bennett, Esq.? Hear Sir? Wishing to get rid of the noise and heat of the city, I wended my way to the Long Island Bail- i road cars at Brooklyn, which conveyed me to this delightful village, a distance of 21 miles in about < two hours, having passed through the young nianu- I facturing village of Eart New York, Jamaica, Brushville and Clowsville. ' Immense numbers of our citizens have resorted to various parts of Long Island this season ; and no 1 where in the vicinity of New York can there be J found a more pleasant place than this. Being situ- \ ated within a few miles of the ocean, the air is sa- ! lubrious, and at all times ten degrees colder than in "Gotham." Daily parties are made up for fishing and hunting excursions in the bay, which abounds in game of every description. In this village, which contains about 15<I0 inhabitants, there are three churches and five public houses, the best of which is owned and occupied by Boberf Anderson, and is decidedly the best hotel on the Island, as his numerous guests will testify. At this Hotel splendid balls are given every Thursday evening, which are attended by the elite of the place. Before quietly settling down in your magnificent establishment in Fulton street, (to make us a visit. I shall remain here until about 10th September, and will guarantee you such a reception, and such sport as you will have cause to remember all the days ot your lite, which, for your own happiness and ihe best interest of society, 1 pray God may be extended until "life ! shall cease to charrn." i This day a Fair is being held at Anderson's by 1 the members ot St George's Episcopal Church, the \ proceeds to be applied to the relief of the poor of the congregation. J he most active in get'ing up this charitable affair is Mrs. G n, the lady of an eminent lawyer in our city, who is now absent in Europe?Misses O k, and the fascinating Mrs. i L g and her amiable sister from New York, and ? Miss T n, daughter of the historian of Long [ Island. A spirit of rivalry has for a long time exist- , ed between the Presbyterian and Episcopal churches i of this place, which has called forth all the eloquence and power of the contending parties. There c has been quite a flare up between one of the ministersof this place and his congregation. There being one of the most lovely women of this place concerned in the affair, I must retain the particulars for your n private ear, or wait for further developments, which 1 will probably occur, and which will be rerherrhr. There is much that I would like to write, hut not knowing how this will be received, I will await the f result of this. So adieu. Lorenzo. h My kind regards to Mrs. B. and la jeunr Edxteur. Portland.

You cannot conceive the de- J light with which I lounge along the shady Rtreets on j a sunshiny day,eveing askance the grou e of beauti- , ful gills that float nlong them Hut aside from con- j struetion and the ladies, Portland has very extensive claims to our attention in lhe magnitude of its commerce and in its beautiful bay. It is the pnnci?al seaport of the I'nited States, norlh of Bo-ton? lore vessels oi all sizes and descriptions are built and sailed to every port of earth. r The society is wealthy and fashionable in tlieex- tremc. Last evening (Aug 5,) a snlendid party was j" given by the collector of the port (Mr. Cummings,) ? and assembled in his magnificent rooms were all * the beauty and the fashion of lhe city, t >h ! it was w a perfect iam ; no possibility of moving out of the g, general current that set from room to room in one |f dense stream. The beautiful dresses?the beautiful .j'.'j women?the inspiring music the well dressed gen- w, LD. Prlee Two Cent*, lemen, nil combined to form a scene that dazzled md delighted I'uon entering the room 1 recognized he gentlemanly host, and shortly after, by ami ot ;reat perseverance, made my way up to the lady ot liu - rwt U'ttfl n-Pfi Veil hv Mm. t\ Willi alt lie matronly kindness and dignity of manner, that endere bar the idol of bercircTe. On looking about, nv eve at once discovered the belle of the evening, Mi?s l)***e, of Staten Island,who splendidly attired; surrounded by a group of admirers, was dispensing ler smiles in a manner that made many a heart iche. Seated near, was her friend, the charming widow l)**?**g, all light, and life and lovelinessihe worshipped centre of another shere. These lathes were decidedly the belles, in vivacity, in beauty, in the tasefulelegance of their dresses, they held the undisputed palm. At this moment the music struck up, the partiesmoved off, the quadrilles lorrned, and all was floating in light and grace. At a turn of the dnnce, 1 discovered tfie two Misses (' p sisters, and both magnitieent beauties in the florid style, large, languishing and superb; they moved through the ligures with the voluptuous grace of oriental beauty. Among other distinguished beauties, 1 noticed Mrs. L****?, MissD*w,MissR.. Miss \V., and a host of bright and joyous faces unknown to me. Among the gentlemen were ihe officers of the I'nited States brig Consort, of the Kevenue Cutter Morris, and of the First Regiment Artillery, together with the gentlemen composing the commission for the Light House Survey, in whose honor I understand the fete was chiefly given. Now that the subject is started, one word in relation to the Light House survey; it is one oi those iniet, unostentatious measures of President Tyler, hat conceived in wisdom and executed with ability, confers, without noise, great good upon tliu country, ana strongly contrast with the paltry die>lay for political effect, that basso long disgraced lie opposing parties for power. The fact is notoious that our Light House system for some time nist has been a mere farce in its management; no ittention has been paid to the rupidiy increasing wants of our fare at marine, and the stations have ? iren chietly selected where most convenient to furuish some political partizan with a contract, and some stninp orator with a desirable birth. It is really astonishing that such wretched constructions and execrable lighting apparatus should disgrace the coast ot a great commercial nation; there ib some consolation, however, in knowing that the evil is in a fair way tor reform. Mr. J. w. P. Lewis, un engineer of great experience and capa city, and who has long given the subject undivided attention, has been appointed to survey and thoroughly investigate the notorious deficiencies.
