The power of the British amis might scaf some of the feeble South American States, nod induce the Governments to promise any thing the fundholders might demand ; but we opine that all the bombs and bayonets in the kingdom could no more extract maney from the war-destroyed countries of South America, than they could drag " breeks off a Hielander.,' But there is one cirrums'mpe worthy of notice Neither the Chronicle nor the Timet*, in all their lamentations, denunciations and mdedictions of American credit and Am ricau faith, tell Lord Ahardeen that he ought to take m asures for enforcing the claims of the English bondholders on the repudiating acd non-paving \i-th American States. Did Lord Ashburton learn at Washington that that was no go, as the Americans phrase it I Did he learn that such a measure would he throwing away "good money for had money:" and that,though Americans refuse to pay these inlanious gambling d>bts, either in cotton or corn, vet that they ure abundantly supplied with a Galena" currency, which they are ready and willing to pav out with a promptitude and precision that would prove very unp&lateable to the monopolists, and their unfortunate instruments 1 The fundholders here, and their agents in the Slates, have for years b-en carrying out Walpiole's principle of bribery and corruption ; but when thev come to tax the American people to foot their hills, they will find it a very different affair from what they have found it in this coun'ry. Here one class of men make the laws, and receive the taxes ; while those who pay the taxes indirectly hive no more voice in laving them or spending them, than the tools which they use in tlc-ir industry. In America, the men who pay the taxes make the laws that govern their appropriation ?ind where everv man reads, thinks, and rotes, it is folly 'o supitn-e that they will hind themselves and po-t-rily as si ives lo foreign fundlwlders and a few domestic speculators. Hinr ilia lochryma This is the source of the bitlerne-s of the denunciations which flow from the pens of Oxenden and Shaw, when they enlighten the world on money und morals, through the two great organs of the money changers. But rui bono ? Will such diatribes paralyse the mind and muscle of these stur dy republicans, and induce them to mortgage themselves, posterity, and their country, and, by adopting our system of vassalage, render themselves for ever tributary to the men who have ruled and ruined Great Britain and Ireland. We think such a scheme Quixotic. They long since repudiated our sys'em of governmen'; and now. when they number eighteen millions of souls, ana in energy .enterprise and intelligence, have no equals on th?

The revolting picture of human depravity and degradation held up to the world by Lord Ashlev, as polluting the very bowe s of the earth in her Majesty's dominions, is not calculated to induce the Americans to put their necks in a similar yoke ; and the wretched moral and physical state of the population, on the top of the earth, all around the vicinity of this very same Lord Ashley's Castle, as dep cted by the correspondent of The 1'hrnniclc, will have as little attraction for these repudiati >g Americans The bestial and dt-'listing depravity of <>ur privileged robbers, as displayed in the debauches ot a late nobleman, and his foreign prostitute, Angelica Bail; the mean and loathsome debauchery of a living Lord, and Miss A ice Lowe; and the various specimens of noble bestiality and disgusting excesses, as presented in public documents and public prosecutions, may whet the a^ietites of pampered privileged orders; but every moral and well-regulated community will turn Irom them with loathing, and eschew all the causes which have led to them. The atrocious charges of Lord y.hinger.

" I remark in one of the official Parit papers, le W?tracer, an article respecting the Court Martial held at New York on the othcera of the Kxploring Expedition. The dignity ant consequence usually attached to such expeditions heighten tint surprise of the French and our mortification at such proceedings and the result*. The London Athe. n?um of the TJil inst , contains an article entitled the American Scientific Kxpeditlon, of which the ohjpct is to vindicate (iiptain Ross for a phrase which Commander Wilkes censured, and to decrr the expedition in every respect.

Tin- WOT of the British \i-?sjta|M'r Press un the m<irnl?, Lllvratiire aim! Politics of the American Newspaper Press. We give our readers to-day a series of the most remarkable articles that ever appeared in hngUnd on the American |?eop!e, literature Hud institutions. M consists lit extracts I ruin the -London it men,' the "London Star," and the "Liverpt ol Mad." These are all leading organsof the powerful parties which divide public opinion in Engluud, during her prenent crisis in the progress of a great revolution. The "Times" and "Mail" are both high tory, high church, and anti-republican in their views and principles?and the leading organs of those doctrines in Europe. The "Star" is the |>owerful organ of republican opinions and doctrines in England, and concentrates about its atmosphere all that is original, moral aud hopeful in the march oi civilization, and the ultimate triumph ol papular principles and politics, morals and literature. It will be perceived from these extraordinary extracts,that the famous article in the "Foreign Quar ly Ueview," was only the first gun in the war that is now g'ing on in Europe, ngainst American morals, literature, finance, and politics. That article.supposed at first by many to have been written by Dickens, but recently attributed, we believe, to a person bv the name of Donald M'Leod, formerly a let'er writer in Washington, in conjunction with Dickens, is now known to have been only the commencement of a long newspaper war, which the privileged aris! tocracy ol England have started as a locus /lenitenlia, to hide the weakness of Lord Aslibur.on in his political, and Charles Dickens in his literary negotiations. The whole British newspaper press, (and very soon the whole French press will also,) is now engaged in discussing, or rather in abusing the morals, literature, philosophy, politics, and institutions of the United States, and in a most especial manner is the "New York Herald" assailed with a virulence, a falsehood, a bitterness that is truly no less interesting than it is amusing. In fact the "New York Herald" and its proprietor-editor, appear to occupy the public attention of the whole civilized world from the banks of the Mississippi and Ohio, to the shores ol the Thames, Seine and Danube. This is a distinction for a newspaper editor without a parallel and indicates that ? ureal revolution is in nrn. gross throughout all the avenues ol society. Amidst this mass of accusation, vituperation, praise and complaint, the greatest truth they utter about the "Herald," is the ex'entof itscirculation and influence?a circulation of THIRTY THOUSAND, and frequently more, reaching the utmost limits of ' the world, and an influence that touches every leading point of America and of Europe. It is this circulation that causes the moth-eaten aristocracy of Europe to tremble ; it is this influence which such a journal begins to exercise upon Europe, in iavorof republican institutions, republican principles, and republican literature, that makes the privileged classes across the water dread us, as Belshazzar did the hand-writing of light on the walls of Babylon. It is unnecessary for us to expose the motives of these men in this new moral war ; it is most ell'ectually done by the " London Evening Star," and with an intensity and truthfulness that will cause it to be read and believed. One thing is amus'ng?to see the slender foundation on which the London tories and their associates, build up their theories of the state of society, religion, and literature of this country. Look at the importance they give to the ridiculous indictment got up against us by M. M. Noah, who took offence at a mere jew in the shape of a police report, and made an egregious iool of himself in that business from beginning to end. That indictment, and all the subsequent proceedings, were brought about by the rivalry of the newspaper press of this city towards the "Herald," and their various efforts to work on juries and judges to our prejudice Noah himself admitted in court that he had committed the greatest amount of libels, and the whole thing'was considered a matter of no moment?a m^re exaggeration of the day?a laughable fanfaroiuitic?until personal malevolence blew it up like a bladder, when it exploded of itself, without leaving a trace behind. It is well known now that all the imputations thrown upon Aldermen Purdy and Lee, having served their purpose, have Jong since been consigned to oblivion ' and contempt. So may we dispose of the misrepre- 1 sentntions made against the Rev. Mr. Bellows by ' the "Liverpool Mail," all of which is equally absurd 1 and ridiculous. ' But the great?the solemn truth is now revealed. ' i litre is a clique 01 amau oroKers, siocK-joooers and literateure in this country, who are secretly leagued 1 with the privileged aristocracy, stock-jobbers and 1 literateurs of England, and who furnish these foreign \ foes with the materials of falsehood, misrepresents- 1 tion and reproach, to destroy the character of this country in all itsrelations, and through all its popular 1 elements. It is now perfectly evident, that, in England, a newspaper war against New York and the United States is declared, similar to that made against Paris and France in the times of the republic and the empire. This war is began immediately on the return to England of Lord Ashburton and Dickens?both of whom had either failed or been outgeneralled in their several negotiations. The literary, financial and political systems of England ' are in danger, from the influence, the example, and the energy of those in the United States. Hence < the present outbreak in all their violent tory jour- \ nals. i But what care we on this side of the water 1 The | luck?the movement ts with us. We have the/>mtiet and the spirit of the age on the side of the Uni- j ted States. These violent assaults will only stimu- < late the indomitable energies ot this land. New j York will become the central city of freedom for 1 the |>eople ?f the whole earth?the great fountain of ' hbety and genius to supply all tongues and all peo. , i'l". The aristocrats, stock-jobbers, literateurs and I brokers of Europe, with their secret agents here, will be met with an enthusiasm and an energy that I nothing can conquer. These very falsehoods of i travellers, reviewers, and newspiper writers, will I only make us mend what is wrong?improve the | unimproved?and carry out the civilization of the I world. As one of the leading instruments of that t civilization,the "Ncv York Herald,"with increasing ' circulation and influence in both hemispheres, will i carry on the war with the European confederacy, i in n way mm iney nine understand, in amnl ! < Tiik Ashbcrton Dinner.?Mr. Walsh, the cor- i respondent ot the " National Intelligencer " wri- < ting from Paris, says, " When the accounts < the | Ashburton dinner at New York appeared in the Pa- i ris newspapers, they were curious to know who the I Major lack Downing was that applauded so etento- t riallv " The Major Jack Downing of that d;nner (who was only spoken of in the Ilerald) is a very amiable and worthy merchant ol this city, who possesses considerable talent, much smartness, and hue written several clever things under the cognomen ol " Major Jack Downing " Our numerous readers in Paris are informed that he did applaud vociferously at the Ashburton dinner ; whether he did so judiciously or not, we leave others to say. From Havana.?By the arrival of the Hellespont, Capt Ellis, we have received Havana papers to the 9th inst, several days later than previous advices. They contain no news of importance. Freights to Europe were a shade better, but none whatever offering for the United States?the Hellespont being compelled to return in ballast. The prices of American and other produce will be found in another column. The U. 9. steam frigate Missouri sailed for Vera Cruz on the 8th in-t.; officers and crew all well. Is it Tru* 1?John Gregory, a pious clergyman ofQUitey, Mass., has been arrested and held to bail in that town charged with the crime of (?o| lygatny j Highly Important from W?Mclutt?r?Urwt Excitement In White Plains. Oar express last evening brought us rome extraordinary intelligence from White Plains. We refer to our re|>ort of this day for the details, as furnished by our reporter. It appears that Mil ward Spragne made an assault upon o^e of the reporters of the Herald, for some statement made in the paper of yesterday. This affair has created quite a stir in White Plains. Last evening Mr. Pprague called at our office and assured ti9 solemnly that he hud no set-to wnh Sullivan in prison?and that, in the excitemcut of the moment, he committed the assault in question. Our invariable instructions to all our rejairters are, to state nothing but well authenticated facts, without bad feelings or unjustifiable motives. If Sprague has h en misrepresented, it has surely been unintentional, while the mode he took to set it right was altogether illegal and hasty. We trust that no extreme measures maybe pursued. Col. Webb?Hts Condition ok Mind in Pkison.? We are afraid that our old friend and fellow sufferer, Col. Webb, of the regular army, is hardly in the right frame of mind to receive acts of kindness, mercy or pardon. The Rev. Dr. Anthon should by all means visit him, for since his confinement he lis? exhibited some strange aberrations ol tem|>cr. Let us unfold our budget. As soon as the Colonel was imprisoned, notwithstanding all he has said and done against us, I felr softened to the heart at his melancholy conditionwounded and in prison on such an affair. 1 accordingly got up a petition on Sunday last, and by Monday night had it signed bv nearly 500 as respectable names as there are in New York. I sent it up to the Governor, as fast as possible so as to throw my little rnite of symimthy into his case, and aid his pardon and liberation, as much as possible. i In addition to all this, I sent a note to Mr. Gilbert Davis, corner of William and Pine streets,who keeps a famous wine cellar there?ordering half a dozen of Chamiwgne to be sent to Webb's apartments in the Tombs?also a similar order to Henrtques, 51 William street, an equally famous segar store, to send a box of his best Regalias. The following contains the order for the latter:? OBDEB. Deih sin A man called on us and requested us to send up to Col. 1 Webb, 100 good Regalias. Do you mean it 1 If so, please 1 acquaint the bearer, and it shall be promptly done?say so in u/rif inir 1 Hfi trnrvl Roirnlioo a -??J article for $3 the 100. Your obedient servant. HENRIQUES, 51 William it. Monday afternoon. answer. Send the beat. J. O. BENNETT. By some mistake the wine .was not sent?but on Monday afternoon the segars reached Webb's apartments. On the young man entering, he found Webb attended by four friends, a black servant waiting behind. He presented the box of segars, and stated the message. What was Webb's reply 1 Any tiling but what we expected. Col. Webb looked at him like an old-fashioned thunder cloud,saying:-"! have nothing to say to you, but tell Henriques that it he had brought them himself, and dared to offer them, I would have kicked him out." The messenger astonished at such treatment on a mission of kindness, retreated precipitately, while the four persons present laughed outright. He returned to 51 William street,segars, reply, and all in one genera! box of astonishment. A further correspondence, verbal and written, has passed between Col. Webb and Mr. Henriques, in relation to this unnecessary insult, but what is its tenor we do not yet know. Henriques has spunk, and will hardly brook it. Now, really this affair seems strange, and positively indicates that Col. Webb wants advice and prayers of no ordinary kind. Here we have been getting up petitions, aiding him in his difficulties, and doing every thing we could with propriety and delicacy to increase his comfort in prison, till the pardon is procured?till the veto on the sentence is certain. Acting on such motives, and in such a way, the Colonel certainly behaved very unhand Bomely to Henriquos, who had nothing further to do in the matter than what we have related. Instead < of wine and segars, our old friend seems to require, j in a greater degree, the pious prayers of sortie f clergyman. We shall, therefore, endeavor to procure the Rev. Mr. Miller, or the Prophet, Joe Smith, or some j, other eminent and pious person to call upon him? o (the Rev. Mr. Anthon has hardly power enough)? J :o put him, by prayers and other devotions, into a t! iglit frame of mind, while we follow out the peti- J ion till he gets released. The wine and segars, we fi relieve, we shall send to the poor prize-fighters at ? W hite Plains, who are in pretty much the same pre- p ficament with the gallant Colonel, and who will t soon be in as much need of a pardon. Will r ihey refuse them, and insult the messenger]! We d hope not. 'H In the meantime we call upon every humane person in New Kork, within the reach of our words, r who have not signed the petition in favor of poor ilod-forsaken Webb, to come to the Herald Office, corner of Nassau and Fulton street, and toput down 1 their names forthwith. Come in?come in?come ^ in! We have now well on to a thousand, and we i mean to make it five thousand, if we can, before Friday next, the last day of gTace. On Saturday [ the Colonel receives his sentence. Although he be- r haves badly, we shall not.

The Grand Jury of the Court ol Oyer and Terminer, now in session, relumed into Court last evening about dusk, with anew bill ot indictment containing twelve counts, charging the following per cmjiib wiui mansiaugnier, ior mrir uurnuaiici ?... prize fight at Hastings, on the 13ih of September, ai which Thomas McCoy was killed:?Christopher Lilly, William Ford, John McClees'.rr, James San- j lord, Henry Shanfroid, James Sullivan, John Winchester, George Kensett, Richard Pagan, John Aus tin, John McGep, John Harris,Charles Riley, Sawyer Kyniis, Samuel Beasley, Joseph Murphy, Jmcoh Somerdyke and Hugh Caldwell. This indictment, we understand, has been prepared lor the purpose of covering all informalities that may have been pointed out in the one found before the Court ol Sessions at Hastings, and liaspassed the revision of Attorney General Barker, who is here in order to aid District Attorney Nelson in the prosecution ol these causes. Win. M. Price, counsel for Murphy and Sullivan, arrived last evening, and also David Graham, Esq., counsel lor McCleester, and A. L Jordan, Esq. Samuel Lyon, Esq., of this village, has also been engaged lor several of the persons indicted. At the opening of the Court this morning a verdict ol #1707 94 was rend-red in favor of Anderson and Ward, coal merchants of your city against John, James, and Abraham Burley, manufacturers ol iron wire, on the Croton, for coal furnished their works. The trial of the colored man, Watson Simmons, lor a rape on a little girl named Margaret Ann Magery, aged only nine years, was continued thismorning. and the prisoner ably and eloquently defended by W. Tompkins, Esq. The jury, after an absence of about two hours, returned a vetdict ol assault and battery, with intent to commit a rape. He was ihen remanded for sentence. Ii is now 11 o'clock, and the District Attorney has called up the case of Timothy B. Beiger, Esq., Justice ol the Peace ot Port Chester, in thiscouniy, who has been indicted for misdemeanor, in refusing to |>erform the duties ol his office, as laid down in tlie statute, in a suit ofassau't and battery brought before him against Alexander H. Wells, Surrogate of this county. Justice Berger formerly resided in New York city, and was a lawyer by profession. It is charged that he refused to allow defendant the privilege of presenting certain evidence in his favor, before he ordered him to be bound over. At the adjournment of the court, at 1 o'clock P M., as I was descending the Court House steps, I was met by Ned Sprague, who was arrested week before last as one of the most active |>artieipanf8 at ihe prize light at Hastings where McCoy was killed, and who was recently before Mayor Morris on the charge of beating and abusing Washington Low He said he wished to speak to me a few moments i walked ucross the street opposite Lewis' Hotel, when he drew the Herald of Tuesday from his pocket and asked me if I had written the letter in it from White Plains, in which his name was introduced in the description of a friendly setto between him and BolUvM 'bat took place in their cell in the prison I answered yes, when the big lubberly blackguard drew off, while my back was towards him, and struck me on the right cheek bone. I turned round, without injury, and as he followed up his advantage thus taken, parried several other blows that he made at me, when several gentlemen interfered and the difficulty was ended. I immediately stepped into the Court House for a warrant for his arrest, when le m-.unted a sorrel horse that had been probably stationed near by for the occasion, and rod'; ofl at full speed. The Grand Jury of the Over and Terminer have just indicted him for the offence, and a oench warrant will be issued for his apprehension. The officere of New York are hereby requested to apprehend him if seen in that city, as a liberal reward will be paid for his arrest. The lio'els and private houses here are filled to overflowing and the court room is crowded to excess each day. Nothing will be done relative to .the prize fight rials before the express rider leaves at 4 o'clock. The trial of Sullivan or McCleester will positively commence to-morrow morning and my despatches orThursday morning's paper will be full of interest. liie whole corps are 111 good condition and have aken quarters at the house of Mr. Dick, whose 'amily extend every comfort that the well known lospitality and kindness of the substantial citizens af Westchester are wont to deal out to New Yorksrs. 4 o'clock P. M. The case ol Justice Bergen is still belore the court tnd w;ll probably occupy its time lor the remainder at the afternoon. The Herald is all the go here, as it is every where >lse, and an agency at this time would be good busitess forany industrious young man of White Plains. Look out for to-morrow. The Colt Excitememt.?It appears that the excitement in relation to this matter was as great in Boston almost, as it was here. The following is "rom the "Boston Bulletin" of Monday:? " Thi Eicirmeir Veitfrnaf.?Probably for many aonth" there ha* not been a greater excitement in State treet thau we witnessed yesterday. Early in the mornng a large number of persons assembled near the nostmce, anxious to learn the real end of the New York Tra;edy ; their disappointment may be imagined when they aw Messrs. Redding 8t Co.'s large placard announcing hat no mail had arrived from New York. This only inraased their curiosity, and at twelve o,clock the whole pace around the City Hall was densely crowded. In a sw minutes it was Known that the Norwich mail had eached this city, and the rush of the crowd into Messrs. tedding St Co-'a was unparalleled. They had a large lackage of New York papers, which they distributed to h?eager multitude immediately. We regret to say that n the rush and confusion.glasses were broken, and many lapers were lost or stolen. Extras were soon afterwards listributed all over the city, and we are informed that nany thousands were disposed of by the news boys. Such in excitement is of rare occurrence in Boston." The " large package of New York papers" refered to were New York Heralds. Of the same [flair the " Boston Times" thus speaks:? " The interest felt in the iate of this unfortunate man, ncreaied to such a degree, as the term of his life was rawing to a close, that the whole city of New York, on 'riday afternoon, was a scene of unparalleled excitement, n the immediate vicinity of the prison, the crowd was mmense, while curiosity, agita'ion and anxiety were deleted in every countenance. The closing scene of the ragic drama wound the general excitement to the highest litch?the vast tbroug assembled to learn the fate of the oomed man, gave utterance to confused sounds, that eemed like the noise of a troubled sea, while the confla[ration that broke out in the upper part of the prison, Jded to the wild and dramatic effect of the scene. " in this city, so great was the anxiety to learn the paricularsof the tragedy, that we were compelled to put an xtra to press, and issued an edition of 10,000 copies,which ran purchased with the greatest avidity . All the intelli;ence we have been able to collect, is given below. Our iaper of to-day is literally filled with horrors, but we ervently hope that it may be a long time before we shall ie again called upon to perform the painful duty of rscoring so many scenes of violence and distress. There is a riorol lesson in the fate of John C. Colt, which ought to ink deed in every bosom. I" It seems clenr that since Sunday last, when he felt hat he had no hope of escape?notwithstanding all his irotestations of faith and repentance, and his solemn disaowal of any attempt to commit suicide, this wretched san has steadily cherished the purpose to escape the gal* ows by killing himself. " The dread tragedy hai closed, and his soul has met lis victim at the bar of their common Ood." In addition to the above, the " Boston Courier" tas a very bitter articl on those concerned in this natter. Here it is:? Notwithstanding the very positive testimony before the 'oroner'a Jury, we do not believe that the public will ever ?satisfied that there was not a groia and pilpable conniance with the friends of Colt and himself, on the part of ome oi tne punnc.omcers. i ne uoranera examination ias a mere mockery, and an if to make it appear ao more ally, he atatea that whoever abetted in the suicide is liaile to indictment lor manslaughter, and then doses the aae without calling any further witnesses. tVhy was lot every man and woman who visited the cell -hat day ailed upon to testify what he or she knew of the matter? dany people think that the whole of the visiters, Dr. tnthon, the sheriff, and all, ought to be indicted as acessories The fire, too, is a suspicious circumstance, It is said in ome of the papers that it took place in consequence of omedefect in the stove pipe. Is it not possible ; Bay, is t not, under the circumstances, prohahle, that this fire was ntentionally caused for the purpose of creating confuion at the moment of the execution, and thus affording he friendsot Colt an opportunity of rescuing him, or to lelav the eiecution beyond the time set, by which a law [tiestion might be raised, whether, having lived beyond hat time, he could legally be hanged at ell ? In one point, the "Courier" is right; the Coroler's examination was a miserable mockery, about vhich we shall have more to say hereafter. The ' U. S. Gazette" has the following about the mariage:? The acenea exhibited (it a faw day* before the death of *olt)and the lait day of hii life, in particular, in the New fork Prison, are of a kind that would be regarded aa too xtravagant for Action. And " Ainaworth, whoae gloo ny imagination haa been ao fruitfully active of late, ha* lothing, in any of hit works, which can compare with the eeming repentance, the sealed letter, the marriage, the uicide, and the Are in the New York Prison on Friday af. ernoon.

It was a part of the " blow" that was ao vio lent in this vicinity last Friday and Saturday. That gale spread over no less than six States. rCorrripondeiice of thr Herald.] Buffalo, Nov. 19, 1S12. So far as information has been received, our worst appiehensions have been realized of the dis istrous effects of the g?le. Since the publication ot the Commercial this afternoon, the following additional vessels are reported as wrecks:? Schooner Indiana, loaded with salt for Chicago ? total wreck. Schooner Mississippi, Captain Raymond, for Kingston, loaded with flour and pork?total wreck. Schooner Ohio, Cnpt. Robertson?light. Schooner M. Kingman, freight not known, lies high and drv, and is supposed will begot off without much damage. The above ves*ls are all on Gravelly Bay. Schooner Florida, loaded with flour, pork and whiskey for this port,is ashore a little above "Point Abinw"? to'al wreck. Schr. Henry Roop, Capt. Fiak, 2000 bushels corn, at Silver Creek. Of the vessels heard from, eleven in number, ull have been wrecked, in distance of some twenty miles from this port, which is the extent of the coast heard from, what has been the effect beyond is unknown, but it is apprehended will prove most fearful. 1 will write you again to-morrow, P. M. In great haste, yours, E. R. J. In addion we would add that the steamboats Great Western arul Wisconsin, from the Upper Lakes, and due ut Buffalo on Thursday, had not arrived. The Western when last heard from, was seen coming out of the Detroit river. The Canals is closed at Rochester and Westward. P. tfc Co. [From the Buffalo Advertiser, Nov. 19.] The gale blew itself pretty much out this morning. The wind is yet high, and an occasional sough may still be heard, but the tempest is over. It was dreadful while it lasted. The wind blew a perfect hurricane, and the air was so filled with snow, ihat one could scarcely see twenty yards. The temperature was very low, and altogether it was about the worst gale we ever experienced in Buffalo. Although the damage here has been slight, there must httvs oecn much personal suffering in many families poorly prepared for such a fierce advent of the inpIprnpnmpQ ni wtnfpr TIip niprmnff wind InnnH an entrance through every crevice, and we doubt not in hundreds of tenements might be seen a household cowering over a fire, the heat of which the blast would snatch away with a howl, that mingled with the wail of children crying with cold. The sharp, clear air this morning, the frozen ground and snow, look like mid-winter, and should remind those blessed with cheerlul homes and all the comforts of life, of the distress and suffering that must be the lot oi many of their less fortunate neighbors. \Ve fear that the gale has been very destructive along the lake coast. The water in the harbor rose some five feet, hut has done little injury other than to inundate the flats, and obstruct navigation on the canal. There are rumors of vessels beached upon the lake shore and of fatal eflects therefrom, but as yet no positive information has been obtained. The schooner Jefferson, Capt. Dougall, went ashore at 6 o'clock last night, about three miles above Buffalo light nouse, and is a total wreck, attended with a melancholy loss of life?one entire family, husband, wife and five children, together with a young woman, and one of the men belonging to the vessel, having perished! The Captain says that about two hours after his vessel beached, the companion way was washed off, and the children and young woman drowned in the cabin and forecastle. A portion of the crew had got ashore, in quest of help, and were endeavoring to rescue the family. The mate wraoped his overcoat around ihe woman, and tried to keep her warm by walking her to and fro on the beach, but she soon became exhausted and i ncapable of motion, and was placed in the boat, which had washed up, where she died in a short time. Her husband was delirious on reaching shore, and attempted to escape into the swamp near by, but perished within a short distance. One of the hands belonging to the vessel, named James Bruce, got into the swamp and likewise lost. The family were from Hartford, Ct.?names un known?tne children aged from8 years downwards The Jefferson was owned by J. W. Hansom, of Chicago, with a cargo of 500bbls. salt. 40 tons of iron, and some merchandise, which will be mostly lost? shipped by J. Murray & Co., ol this city. Tne crew succeeded, about midnight, in getting on board the brig Olive Richmond, beached below them, in a greatly exhausted state. When our reporter reached the vessel thjp fore* noon, ine ngure 01 ine young women aDove men tioned was discovered standing in an upright posture, in the forecastle companion-way, frozen stark and stiff, with hands partly raised in an imploring posture, and her eyes fixed with a cold and stony gaze upon the shore. The brig Olive Richmond, Capt. Dorchester, went ashore about a mile below the Jefferson, early yesterday afternoon. She was bound up in ballast,and will be got off without damage. The schooner Walter Joy, Capt. Lacy, went ashore about the same time, near the Olive Richmond, with a deck load of flour, which will be partly lost, but the vessel will be got off with trifling injury. The brig Frances Mills, Capt. Langley, went ashore on the Canada side, three miles below Point Abino, at 2 o'clock, P. M. yesterday. She lies partly tilled with water, by which the lower tier of her cargo, consisting of merchandise, will be injured. She was bound for Chicago and St. Josephs?will probably be got off. The schooner Edwin Jenny, Capt. Davison, dragged heranchors and went ashore below Point Abino, a little above the Frances Mills. She was loading with stons for some port up the lake. Correction. I'.

Max Bohrek.?The concert of Max Bohrkr, at the Apollo Rooms on Monday evening, was truly splendid in point of science, skill, beauty and pathos, exhibited by that artist on the violoncello.

Dear Bennett:? Yesterday was one ol the finest days that we have had for a long time ; and it was duly taken advantage of by persons of all classes, sizes and sexes, thronging our principal streets. The news of the euicide of John C. Colt reached here on Saturday evening and produced a startling effect upon the minds of all, and was the chiel topic of yesterday's conversation. Forrest closed his engagement at the Front Street on Saturd iy night (being for his benefit,) to a good house ; the performances were received with strong marks of approbation To night Hackett appears. There was considerable of a "breeze'Mn the neighborhood of Spears' wharf to-dav, in which fists and canes were brought in fierce collision, seasoned with "liar," "scoundrel," "puppy," and other "gentlemanly epithets." It was between a Mr. S., of the firm of W. W.

General Jackson and Pease's Candy.?We would call the attention of our readers to the following letter from ex-President Jackson, in which he descants largely upon the virtue of Pease's Horehound Candy. We have seen the original letter, and as for the candy made by Messrs. Pease <te Son, we know from our own experience it is not to be exceeded in the cure of coughs, and colds, having our selves been the recipients of their bounty whilst laboring under a severe cough; thus testing its qualities :? Hermitage, Nov. 12th, 1842. Messrs John Pease & Son? Gentlemen,? Your kind letter of the 30th of August last, with the greatly esteemed present of Iiorehound Candy, of your own invention, reached me in due course of mail, and found me on its arrival, incapable of wielding my pen; I immediately began to try the effects of your candy, and have Deen using it ever since with great benefit, and intend to make a fair experiment to see whether it will remove my cough entirely. I find it in the apothecary shops in Nashville. We have been using it in whooping coughs in our family with much benefit, and 1 consider it a valuable medicine for the lungs. I tender you my kind thinks for this present, and receive it with grateful feeling, as an evidence of your solicitude for my health and welfare, and tender to you my best wishes for your long and useful life, and happy immortality.
