Projfoml to Correspond?Politics and Suriety in Berlin? Fire in Hamburg?King of Prussia ami Kmjterorof Russia?Literature atul Trade?Commercial Affairs. James Gordon Bennett, Esq :? Sir:? During a residence of several years in the United States of America, I have been a constant reader of your valuable Journal, which is allowed on all hands to contain u greater mass of information than is to be met with in any of the "respectable sixpennies" of Wall street. Knowing that your connexions are not confined to America, but extend to England and France, I conceived the idea on my return to Europe that a correspondence from this ...... ?r a.? 1,1 :~u. . i.- ? ii vi >ii- n <>iiu iiugui. iiui itr quite unacceptable, as I shotiM h ive an opportunity of communicating a variety ?f (acts anil observations,whichwould offer more novelty to your countrymen in general, than those concerning the more beaten track of continental travel. You are well aware that Berlin is the cupitol of a powerful und flourishing kingdom, and may be considered in an intellectual point of view, as the focus in which the rays of German science aud literature are concentrated. It contains a University,which,although one of the newest, is already one of the most distinguished institutions of the kind on the continent, and is frequented by students front all parts of Europe, and even by a ft w from the United States. Many of the Professors have acquired the highest reputation in their several departments. M. de Savigny, the great lawyer, has been recently appointed Minister of Justice; M. dc Raurner's historical works and travels in England, are not unknown on your side of the Atlanlicjand Dr. Schoenlein has infused new life into the medical department. The city boasts of a population nearly equal to that of New Vork, and has lately evinced a similar tendency to go out of town, although it is stopt in its vagrant prosperities by a lofty brick wall that encompasses it on all sides, including muny acres of ground not yet built upon. Most of the streets are wide, straight, and of interminable length; splendid palaces and immense barracks are the distinguishing features of Berlin, the latter being necessary to accommodate the garrison,which is said to amount to:50,(HH) men. There is also a goodly number of churches,but lliey are generally less frequented than tli- theatres; I question whether even the eloquence of your friend Mallit would be able to attract a full congregation. The public sympathy is now chiefly engrossed by the great fire at Hamburgh,the narticu'ars of which you have probably seen in the English newspapers , With the exception of the burning of Moscow it is the most distructive conflagration that has taken ymuc hi ?ui<>i>e since me lire 01 i.onaon in iM*i, nearly 2000 houses having been consumed, and upi wards of 20,000 individuals deprived of their homes l and their property. On the first arrival of these disastrous accounts, liberal contributions of provisions, i bedding and clothing, were sent down the Elbe to i Hamburgh, to relieve the distress of the unfortunate sufferers, and since then large sums of money have been collected for the same purpose. The King i set the example by a donation of 25,000 dollars, the 1 members of the Royal family, the nobility, the t bankers and merchants, in fact all classes of people i showed equal liberality, and the collections have ; consequently attained a very considerable amount. This deplorable event lias excited the greatestsym , pa thy throughout Germany, every city and town, whether lurge or small, hastened to send in its sub, scription. The Senate of Frankfort voted 100,000 florins, and the Hanoverian Chambers $100,000 dollars for the same object. As soon as the Emperor of Russia was informed of the conflagration lie ordered 50,000 silver roubles ($40,000) to be paid over to the Hamburgh authorities; 140,(KM) silver roubles are said to have been coljected in the Imperial fami lv. anil fill IKIflKv llie rwitlilifv nf Pulurskiini !,? sides the sums subscribed by the merchants, which will probably be very considerable. Will the United States do anything to assist their sister Republic1? I or have their financiering experiments put it out of their power! The princi|ial Hamburgh Insurance Company is not likely to be able to pay in full, eomo say not more than 20 per cent. This is the mare to be regretted, as it was principally the middle class ol people, retail sliopkee|>ers, mechanics. Arc., that were insured in this Company, many of them will lose the hard earnings of their whole lives, and be reduced to comparative poverty, whereas the more opulent mercantile houses were insured in London, in the Royal Exchange, Alliance, l'henix and Sun Offices, which pay ull their losses in full. Altogether the distress is infinitely greater than it was after the fire ofNew York in 1835; the heaviest losses falling on those who are least able to bear them. The King is expected to go to St. I'etersburgh i towards the end of this month, on a visit to his brother-in-law, the Emperor, who celebrates what is called in this country his silver-wedding, that is to say the twenty-fifth anniversary of his marriage with the present Empress (sister to the King of Prussia.) In the fall grand manoeuvres will take place in the Rhinish provinces, when the King will review the troops quartered near the French frontiers. In this tour he will be accompunied by the Queen, and the ' palace of Coblenee has been ordered to be put into complete repair, and newly furnished for the reception of the Royal family and their guests, who are expected to be present at the reviews. The mercantile part of this community are chiefly \ engaged in buying and selling the manufactures ol Germany, which have in many instances supplanted ' English and French goods, the latter being subject to heavy duties from the German Commercial League (Zollverein.) i Tl^e goods manufactured by steam power in vour | Eastern States are equal, in most resperts to those made here by hand?In fact 1 have seen some domestics, Arc. from the looms of Lowell, the Memmack and other companies, which are superior to i those manufactured in Germany, but could not be i imported on account of the duty on ull foreign nier[ chandise, and the heavy expenses. Business in r this country is altogether conducted on a more limited scale than in the .States, although the amount 1 of capital is <|uite sufficient to supply the means of ' engaging in extensive commetcial enterprises. But the merchants of this city are very different to those of your great emjioriuin; no grand speculations to all quarters of the globe are thought of here, nor ; could they be in the nature of things. Berlin is an inland city, situated on a small river, and many local prejudices and petty obstacles prevent the launching out into new undertakings or establishing ex\ tensive manufactures.

On Thursday evening, 11th August, in the year of our Lord, 1842, just eight months, two days and J four hours before the final end of all tilings, the streets, lanes, lots and avenues, were thronged with travellers, all bound to the big tent at the head of ' Third street, isoint were oil foot and some in wa gons and cube; old men tottering from age urul in- i firmity, young men with their intended fair ones 1 hanging on their amis; women with children in their ' arms and out of their arms ; some very respectable, j beautilul women, and some not respectable; crowds < of canawlers ; a good many dock loufers ; a fuir sprinkling ol black-legs and pick|)ockets; every grade i of color?the black, the brown, the fair, the ex- ' quisitely beautilul?all. all wending their way to hear the liev. Mr. Fitch expound and demonstrate i that the 23d April, 1S43, and not the 4th of April, as has been set forth by Miller, is to be the very last day that the Ikrctors of Divinity, the Mormons, the i Fourierites, the Squashiteg, the Wall st. editors, and the Wall street brokers, shall have an existence, i From and after that day, they, together with the United States Dank Directors, Nick Diddle, and all the other workers of iniquity, shall be burned up and i utterly consumed. The ground selected is a piece of tlat table land, about u mile north of the Capitol, i on land adjoining the country mansion of the celebrated Doctor Cooke, late ol this city- It is easy of access, and a better location could not have been | selected. The glorious prospect for miles around, reminds one forcibly of tlie "temple not made with hands." The first object that meets yourr view is the great tent or" markee." 110 feet in diameter, covering an area of nearly nail an acre; it is supported in the centre by a pole 100 feet high, and round the sides by stakes or uprights. It is open all round the bottom to let the air circulate freely within, and can be closed all round so as to make it tight should the weather be unfavorable; it cost $700, and is said to he the best specimen in the tent making line in the U. Slates ; every part of the work about it i^really beautiful. The interior is fitted up with rude benches or seats without backs. The ground is covered with straw to protect the feet from damp. It is said that some 3000 people can be comfortably seated, but that 3,500 cau?be, and have been, accommodated under its roof. A rostrum ?r pulpit for the orator, is erected at one side, so that all of the immense audience can see and heur him. The ladies are ranged on the one side, and the men on the other. Desides the big tent there are three others for the ! use of the brethren and sistere who officiate in the temple, where prayer meetings, bible classes, and other night meetings are held. They are all neatly and tastelully arranged. fn addition to these, there are fifteen booths, where cakes, rum, candies, gin cock tails, ice cream, mint juleps, and oysters, can be had in great abundance, together with other luxuries in great plenty. All the houses in the immediate vicinity are turned into shops for the sale of creuture coinforts, and all uppear to be driving a lucrative business. The interior of the large tent is dimly lighted up with canal boat lamps suspended from posts scattered over the building. Every seat was filled. Some young ladies could not get seats and had to set on the beaux knees. Mr. Fitch preached nearly two hours, in an atmosphere of ninety degrees. The (lowers of human endurance were nut to the severest lest to sustain the heat and effluvia of so niuny breaths; some flavored with tobacco, some with gin. and some with decayed teeth?still the orator held on. He commenced with the birth of our Saviour, the star in the east, the wise men, Jacob's ladder, Moses in the bullrushes,Lot and his daughters,Da via and lfathsheba, Joseph and the wife of Potiphar, Daniel's vision, the seventy weeks, the horrible iniquity that now abounds, how the world is lost for want of the pure gospel,how the D. D.'s and all other Reverencesure serving inamnion, how our finances are all going to the devil, how the wliigs want to head Captain Tyler, [a sure sign the world is drawing to a close;'] from ilieee strong and irrefrigable shadowing forths of the very age and body of the time in which we live, the reverend orator deduced the fact in connection with the fall of the great mammon, the United States Hank andidl its Jj*.>2,Ut)(> borrowers, that on the 2:fd of April, 1H13 at 12 P.

No disturbance. No riot. Over 4000, soma say five thousand dis|*?rsed, most of them to their res|>ective places of abode, some of them to stroll over the neighboring fields, the night being delightful and the "moon having hid her face."

There is no paper received at this place, that is so eagerly sought, and read with so much avidity, as the New York Herald; and, for the simple reason, that it contains the latest intelligence from all part* of the country, tells the truth, and fears neither man, the devil, nor all Wall street combined. Presuming you would like to hear from the head quarters of the beau motulr, this grand resort of the fashion, folly, piety, pride and flummery of the whole country, I devote a few minutes this morning for your especial benefit. The village yet continues full of visitors, dog days being in full operation ; a scorching sun and pelting shower succeeding each other in rapid succession. La?t week it rained here more or less, everyday but on?. Union Hall has now about :#*) boarders?as fine a lot of Presbyterianisnt, and all other isms, as can be found in the country. This hotel has got to be for the pious, sedate, steady sort of people, the crack house.

En />assant, if the latest fashions of the ladies dresses, continues to increase in rotundity and size for ano ther year, as much us it has the past year, the demand for cotton wool and curled hair, will be so great that the price must inevitably rise without even a " tariff forprotection, or a tariff for revenue." The number of arrivals in town per railroad, for the eight days previous to the 12th in-tant, was I37!>; and about 2o<)0 persons have arrived hy railroad in the last two weeks, besides those who came by stages and private conveyances. Among the recent arrivals are Rev. Silas Aiken, Pastor of the Purk street Church, Boston ; Professor Muzzy, (or anti-tobacco Muzzy, as he is sometimes called) formerly of Dartmouth College, but now of Cincinnati, Ohio; Professor Proudfit, and Hon. Stephen Allen, of your city ; Mr. Van Buren, ex-sub-treasurer. We have also at the Union, lots of D. D.'s, Reverends, Gea'ls, Col's, Ksr|rs., <tec "too numerous too mention." Rev. Drs. Spring and Cox, are still rusticating at the springs, in order, I suppose, to gain strength'to grapple with the power of darkness in your great city of Gotham. Miss Sedgwick, of Lenox, Mass., so extensively and popularly known as a writer of novels and tales for the young, is at Congress Hall. But few females, or males either,have done as much as shefhas l?y her writings to benefit the masses, and to elevate the condition and increase the happiness of the many.

In ten minutes you could laugh out more than 50 cents worth at Hill's wit and drollery; and the Rainers' singing was most admirable. Among the on dits of the town is a report that a man who has a wife in Schenectady, having procured a beautiful young lady of seventeen, belonging to this village to tend a shop for him, seduced her to run away with hiin. iter father pursued them as far as Utica, where lie found them in a very delicate and improper situation. He caused the inan to be arrested and brought back into this county, where he was held to bail in the sum of #1200, to appear at the next Court to answer to the crime of seduction.

Captain Tyler's fourth veto was received here on riiursday lust. It is a most able and admirable locument, combining the Qualities of the statesman tnd the honest man. It has generally liwi condeeded thut General Jackson suiieraboundeiuii firm less; but certainly President Tyler has more. For ook at the circumstances with which he was surrounded. Never was a man placed in such a trying situation. Never before lias a President displayed such Roman lirniness, united with so much discretion, and a conscientious regard for principle. Although the disappointed and miserable i*>litieians of the present day may condemn him, yet still, when this generation shall have passed away, the impartial historian will do ample justice to the administration of John Tyler. The wliigs here scold, and curse, and rave at the President; und as the "down-easter" said of his thermometer, " if it had been longer, the weather would have been colder so.il they could find or invent stronger and more bitter language they would apply it to their own President. The democrats generally are much pleased with the veto, and will sustuin it. They are everyday more and more pleased with President Tyler ; and they are glad to see a whig pursue such a noble and democratic course, lie must look to the democracy for support ; and let him adhere to the principles of his vetoes, and he will most surely have it.

The married ladies, however outshone the single deities. Mrs. O'D. from Baltimore, Mrs. C. from N.*Y., Mrs. S. from New York, and Mrs. J., a bride, were adornblu. Some persons object to married women being belles. This is a great error. On the continent women are in their prime at 35, and married women universally have the greatest attraction. The ball was the most splendid of the season, and kept up till daylight. Among the lions are Colonel While of the Hussars. Captains Hush, Cununings and Pcnkenson, and others of Her Majesty's service, a nephew of John Jacob Astor, and a German Huron.

Tired of the insipidities of ton, and the treadmill of fashion, after a delightful drive of tour hours, and a delicious dinner at Glen's Falls, we reined up at the Lake House on the quiet shore of the Horican. A heavy shower had justpnssed over the mountains, and the " live thunder leaping front peak to peak" in the amphitheatre of hills which surround theclassic water, mingled with the hues of sunret, was indeed a glorious treat. To our great surprise, only three or tour more jiersons were enjoying the beauties of Lake George ; one of them, a disciple of Isaac Walton, was the best specimen of an angler this side of the Atlantic. His philosophy and tact are always sure to fill his hamper with the finest trout, when others strive in vain for a nibble. The old gentleman had just returned from the mouth of a creek that opens to the Lake by the fortress so conspicuous informer days, with his rod in hand. When examining his tackle. we discovered the secret of his success:?he used the fly when others were idling their hours with a worm bait. The discovery annoyed the old man very much, and there is not the least doubt, when this meets his eye, he will desert the lake for a more inland water. Passing down the lake in the William Caldwell steamer, tnrough a magnificent panorama of enchanting scenery, with onlv two passengers, after a ride of an hour from the Horican, we loitered at Ticonderoga. Here the hotel was deserted, formerly the mansion of Mr. Pell; the view and grounds are beautiful. In the garden we found a grove, the entrance to which informed us was the " Elssler Grove." Late in the afternoon we strolled to the ruins of the fort, picking up bullets, pieces of human bones, and other mementos of many a deathful .itrife. The fort of Ticonderoga was the keystone of the counrty in the revolution. How great the contrast from that period when Jthan Allen, in the " name of the Continental Coi^ress, and the great Jehovah," summoned the Governor to surrender, which he did, to his handful of troops, when l!urgoynesealed tlieoverhangiiig hill, and dislodged 'he Americans who fancied tliey were out of the range ofhis guns.

By stage we tame to Troy, from thence to Lebanon, at which place there are about 30 visitors. The Shakers have concluded not to have any public exhibitions of their religion, which was the principal object of attraction. We saw several files of the Herald amongst the Shakers. The hotel, however, is well kept, and the scenery nround picturesque and charming From Lebanon we proceed to Niagara, from which placa you may hoar from Tin Partt. f Special Sessions.

The course of the majority is not vet determined upon, and the result is just as doiihtlul us ever There is to be another caucus to-night, hut the expectation seems to he that nothing will be agreed upon. There are obstacles to uny salutary action which threaten to be insuperable. The bill which the President vetoed was found to conciliate certain interests not favorable to a protective tunfl, utid it may be doubted whether any hill can he earned through the present Congress which shall not embrace distribution. We shall know the result in a day or two. At present all is incertitude and anxiety. # It is not to be questioned that in the present condition of the public finances, revenue should be the primary object in all legislative action. Protection must be a subordinate consideration. In the lull vetoed by the President, protection was the nut n feature and object. The honest men in Congress who look at this question calmly and wiihout prejudice, will not consent to go above the revenue point in a tariff bill, so an adjournment without any thing being done is highly probable. Well, this will be better than the adoption of restrictive measures. We can vet more revenue under the exist ing lawa than would bo produced by the bill jum vetoed, even with the land fund restored to tin* Treasury. Several of tlie palters in your city have, through mistake, probably, attached undue importance to Mr. S. M. Stillwell's trip to Europe. The Tribune announced that he was the bearer ot despatches from the Treasury Department, and .m ine other paper Htuted that he had been commissioned to negotiate a loan in our behalf. These stories are nil without foundation. Mr. Stillwell ip charged with no business whatever by the Government, llis private a Hairs required his presence in England, and lie came to Washington and obtained leave of absence for a few weeks. Mr. Forward and some oilier of the high functionariesheregavehimletters ot introduction to gentlemen abroad?among them was one to Mr. Robinson, the person sent by the Treasury Department to borrow some money. These letters, such as every gentleman takes to Europe, have been magnified into "despatches," and much nonsense has been uttered pro and con, both written and oral. This short statement tells the whole stoty. If any friend or enemy of the administration can make capital out of it, he must be very ingenious indeed. City Intelligence.
