UlLNMKri ? i am a subscriber lo your interesting paper, and as a daily reader of it, I have been both amuaed and informed bv vour letter-writers from the di tic rent cities and towns throughout the country, and huve often wondered why you have not a correspondent in our growing and flourishing city. In u late number oi your paper, 1 notice some one has attempted to give you and your readers a description of St. Louis, its " Currency, Trade, Aco." Upon one or two subjects, he writes in a spirit of hostility, and has allowed himself to be carried aw.iy by his prejudice, possibly losses, and by so doing, has given an erroneous uccount of the insulation of our city, its currency, Ate. , Two years ago our city charter was altered- Toe city now extends in length live miles, parallel with the Mississippi river, running back (the width) two and one hilt miles, und containing a population of over lit),0U0 people, and is rapidly increasing.? Uroadway has recently been Macadamised the whole length, which extends the whole length ot (he city, and when worn smooth, will present as line an avenue us your Third; several streets running back from the river have also been Macadamized, whicli bad to be done ere the property, beyond the old limits, was subject to taxation. About a year ago, our wiseacres?the Common Council? determined upon makiiig the improvement imposed upon them by the Legislature, before they could legislate beyond the said limits. The sequel will show iheir narrow contracted views, headlong and malicious legislation. The city was in debt, j and no means to accomplish (he required improve lllt'iit. uar r diners causeu warrants iu uc i.vuru ol the denomination ol 1,2, 3, 5 and 10, upon beauliiuliy engraved paper, resembling bank notes, wlucti presented a tine appearance, and were paid to contractors tor tlie amount ttie tace called lor. The members composing the two board* were considered by themselves Hie wise men " oftlie West." I'he 's whole lime was occupied in affixing his signature to the warrauts; every tiling went on -wuniiiiugly?smiling laces were worn by them all; the members pocketed their two dollars tor each meeting, and leturued to iheir homes,dreaming,no doubt, their names would be handed down to posterity and a monument erected to their memory when the/would "shuffle otf their mortal coil." .-mon their fancied money began to depreciate. At a meeting, one of the members suggested the brokers were me cause ol its depreciation, and they ought to be punished for so doing. A bill was ottered mat tbey be taxed $ 1000 per year, which is per day, and which amouut several ot them are payiug, and pissed by a large majority, and became au ordinance by tne approval ol the Mayor. The scrip continued to depreciate until it weul down to liity cents on the dollar?it is now selling at 70. Saudi is .he sequ-1 of the legislation of our wouid-be wise men. IJad they read and studied your ably written commercial articles, they would have been told toe consequences of their unwise legislation. Nuw it does seem to me men belittle themselves when they are chosen to legislate and enact laws lor their constituents to exhibit towards any one class a malicious spirit. The brokerage business, it an evil, is a necessary one, uud is brought into existence by il>? n.,n.o.. nis in,vini* banks, and cities, counties and Slates issuing scrip witnout auy thing 111 tue treasury to redeem such issues, iu my business, as a merchant, 1 necessarily have business with thein, us my means would not allow me, were 1 disposed, to send each bill to the place ot issue. Fur-redemption. 1 can always dispose of my uncurreiii tunds on much better terms to them than i can to merchants. Your correspondent says, "we are cursed with the worst curreucy in the Stales, we have nothing but city scrip at iromten to fifty percent discount. The ii.iuk of Missouri, specie paying, is little belter than no bank at all. 1 have never seen one of its bills, it issues nothing less than ten, and few oi them." The above quotation proves conclusively to me that your correspondent knows but very Utile about the commercial business of our city. City scrip haa never been the curreucy in our cuv. That wlucti the Hank receives in payment for debts due it am. on deposit, is considered by us business men us lh< curreucy, which is its own bills, gold and silver. 1 threw out State Hank ot Illinois pai>er in 1839, am had it adhered to its determination, we should nev tiave met with the losses we have been compelled tt submit to by the depreciation of Illinois paper anc our own city scrip. Some few months ago, the Roard ?f Directors determined to have nothing to do with the issues of the banks in the other Slates, and if they will adhere rigidly to that determination,and pursue the course which they are now following, which is a legitimate banking business, buying all good exchange on the Fastern cities that is offered, ihey will soon furnish our State and the adjoining Siait s. with a currency based uiwin specie, and ready at uny moment to protect their isspes. Kentucky, Indiana and Virginia paper passes in out door siransactions. Our rivers have been very lowthi9 fall, which has injured business very much. Navigation is drawing near to a close; the upper rivers usually close about the 1st Dec. In the course of a few days our Legislature will be in session. What will be done lor the advancement of our prosperous Slate, time alone will determine. I would advise each member to procure a copy of the " Herald," and if they will peruse the commercial articles, they will be prepared to vote and consign to the "tombs of the Capnlets" the bill which is te be proposed by Ex Governor Boggs for the relief of the people of Missouri. The Mechanics' fair has just closed, and was well attended?one evening it was a perfect jam; the beauty and fashion were stowed ami packed away like so many herring ?their dear little faces bedewed with perspiration their rosy cheeks?painted, lost their color , theii ruby lips did from their color fly ; their eyes, whose bend doth charm the world, did lose their lustre, still the " observed of all observers." Miss J looked beautiful, she was the star for each one'e gaze. It fully convinced me " that beauty unadorned's, adorned the most." Quite a laughable incident occurred during the evening to Miss W. which I dare not name, as she has partially promised me to abandon the article, if I will never mention it. The season is approaching when we will be summoned to attend the winter parlies. Our ladies anticipate much pleasure in attending them. Who will betne " Belle 1 as Miss C. has left us. 1 have extended this much longer than was anticipated, .but will only say that if this meets your a[>probation and finds a place in your entertaining and interesting paper, you may hear from me again, when any thing new offers.

This pretty town, though cursed with hard times, and the hardest sort of shinplaster currency, is as merry as a New York Christmas day, at this moment. There is nearly a foot of snow carpeting the earth, and every body that can afford it?old and young, manhood and beauty?that can aflord an expenditure of one (round Pennsylvania Relief, at no discount, is enjoying the happy moment of " first snow," in rides, dances, and deer killing. The sen on of gaiety and life has commenced?cotillons are all in vogue among the fashionables, and waltzes are whirled off nightly in |*iblic and pnvate parties Our good citizens have, of late, introduced anew kind of social parties, which are not expensive, and, atthcaame time, very pleasant and agreeable. A number of young people agree to get up an " occidental," and drop in on a certain evening, to visit a certain lady, who is taken all by surprize?though previously informed of the affair? and of course she is put to no expense in preparing an entertainment. All are, of course, perfectly " at home," having taken entire possession of the house? and the evening is passed in dancing, singing, and playing at cards. The Circuit Court, now in session here, disposed of a very extraordinary case of infanticide last week, which had excited the court-loungers for a number of days, and created quite a sensation in community A preity, modest looking country girl was under arrest for killing her own natural child, but a few weeks old, by throwing it into the i'axton creek, a few roda above the suburbs of the town, where it was found, without even a teni-enny tunic to cover its delicate proportions. She was perfectly cool while on trial, and occasionally looked around at the young bachelors and newly married men of the jury, with such lovely liquid eyes, that that sensible body of the aforementioned young bachelors LD. f*rtc? Two Cent*. and newly married men, returned a verdict of not guilty, on Sunday morning. It a|yeured that the poor girt had overlaid and smothered her offspring during some visions of the night, and having nothing to enable her to bury it, laid it in the water near the margin of the brook. A lraine book-bindery, belonging to a Mr. Sprig man, wax destroyed by tire on ruesuay, ana conscleral) e loss was sustained. There was a composition for rockets in the garret, and it is supposed it took tire from spontaneous combustion. Harrisburglt is now the theatre ot one of the greatest political movements that was ever known in the old Keystone. In every place of public resort nothing is heard hut debates and speculations in regard to the all-absorbing question of the Presidency. The late meeting of the friends of General Cass has commenced a new era in politics, and the general favor with which his nomination is received by the people, is astonishing. There appears to be a magic in the very uaine of that brave, talented, and honest man, and all look upon him as the only man living who can raise the country trom its present difficulties, and the nation from its disgrace. There is a determination among the jieople to break loone from tli yokes of pocket parttzans, and, by a united popular movement, to raise up a man to the chief magistracy who is above tne narrow political schemes of the day, and who, looking to the honor and fame of the country, and the good of ike maae. will re-tore us again to our former greatness and prosperity. The paltry schemes of designing politicians, to trade ott' with each other, and for their own personal aggrandizement,the votes ofthe people of the States, inust be stopped, and that speedily. We have no security against the dishonest and intriguing detna- , gogues of the country until it is done; and we hn lieve the only course left the people, is to rise in their majesty, and shake of!' these lepers front the body politic. The tuna has gone by when a few prominent men can control the votes or opinions of the mass, mid the sooner the people throw oH ihese demagogues the belter. We want at the head of the uation a man of tried honesty and courage?a man of high moral and political character, wno, like Rome s last tribune, will raise the character of the nation, and the staiiuiog and houor of the |>eople?the Atlas who can lift the Union ujion his strong shoulders, and place it again belore the world?a beacon tor the oppressed ot all nations, and the giory ot Republican ins itulions. Thai man is Gen. Lewis Cass, and the nnghty voice of th<* yeomanry have already said it shall be bo! Tbe uppcarauce ot the New York Herald, con tauiiug Hit-proceedings ol me tiarrisutirg lyoiiveiiiion, was hailed wall enthusiastic demons!radons ot pleasure here. Five hundred copies could have been sold in un hour, ii the agent could have procured them. As it was, every copy wus immediately snatched up, at any price. The publication ol the proceedings in New York, New Jersey, and several of ihe eastern States, is hailed as a sign ol the tunes that cunuot be mistaken. Already have more than a dozen newspapers in Pennsylvania published them, and numerous others promise them. Three or lour have given notice that they will raise the Cass (lag. Sio goes the great Cass movement, and so it will go, uutd the whole Union echoes the voice of Pennsylvania There is an incident connected with the Cass meeting here which deserves notice. The resolution recommending Mr. Uuchanan for the Senate was ottered by one ot that gentleman's own paiticular friends, who intruded liiniselt upon the convention to offer it. This may be considered as virtually dropping him for the Presidency. He probably thinks half a loaf better than none, and, no doubt, this matter was undrrstooi betore the resolution was ottered. If it was not, well may he txclaim, " save me from my tnends!" Great credit is awarded to Governor Parter for the high stand he ha- taken in not interfering with the presidential question. It is a rare matter in this corrupt age to find a tnan possessed ol the influence and popularity ot David R Porter, who has ihe k ?,n/l .nounantmitu In clunil ulnnf fmm til** political movements ot tlie people ; and he who does is entitled to the wishes of the democracy, and he will receive them. Mr. Buchanan, finding that he will no be sustained in hia plan to Wave delegates elected at the 8lh of January convention?called by his dictation? has ordered it to be changed to a mass meeting, merely to recommend htm for the presidency. This i matter, however, is rather late, tor in several couni ties meetings hate been held and delegates appointI cd, and they have gone so tar they won't hack out. ; The Van Uuren meeting lately held in Phdadelt pbia, has killed him?it he was not alreudy dead? j in Pennsylvania. No man of any inHuence had r anything lodo with it, and there was no response in , the country. There is no doubt but that Gen. Csss I is the choice of Pennsylvania, and of the Union; and he will be nominated and elected by the same potent power that placed in the presidential chair GenJackson and Gen Harrison. Thine particularly, Bgyro. Baltimore. fCorrespomlence of the Herald.] Bai.ti.mors, Dec. 2, 1842. Dear Bennett The streets of Baltimore are at present musical with the jingling of sleigh bells. For the last two days we have had very excellent sleighing, arid our citizens appear determined to enjoy it. Last night. Bob Ramsay, of Govanstown, gave a ball and supper. Govanstown is a small village about lour miles from Baltimore,on the York road, and a great resort while there is any snow on the ground. Bob opened rich last night; his room warm and well lighted; his music was pretty fair; his company was select; the whifclcpv nnnrh wur hot* thp tnrkipM wcrp fpniJpr the ducks juicy; and Bob himself polite in the exi treme, living an old bachelor. On entering the I room I was rather taken aback by the presence of ; so many lovely women, bnt after swallowing a glaa or two of hot whiskey punch, I felt like going to work and tripping it on the light fantastic toe in good earnest. I had the plensure of dancing with the i prettiest lass in the room, the lovely Mies Maria M , of Eautaw street, i nlso enjoyed the company of a handsome lady of Fells Point, in the Spanish dance. Fells Point is celebrated for pretty girls, and ihey all delight indancing. The ball broke up about one o'clock, and the fun in coming to Baltimore surpassed the ball Several sleighs,freighted wiih nature's most beautiful plants, were capai/.ed in the snow; it was quite a sin to look at the pretty ones shake the snow off them, and langh, bnt they looked so irresistibly comic, I could not help it A lady and child, in walking in Baltimore street this morning, came very near being buried by an immense body of snow falling from the roof of a I _ II. ; .

This is the house where Daniel Weha er always takea his meal when he |>asses through. The Preaident'e message begins to excite a good deal of conversation. Next week we shall see and judge for ourselves. Until then, Zitii, xlttl, riano, plans. Signor John Nagrl is here, and intends to give a concert next week; he will be a.auoted by Mona.
