All the scholars understand the English language, and many of ihein speak it hibitnslly and rlueutly The Principal has the eipeiTc-uce of schools in France, Germany, England, and tip* united States. His chief aim Is to jive the youth entrusted to his care a practical knowledge of those branches of a |K>ii c education, which are required in a/I active careers, and are applicable to any. The course of study, therefore, comprehends the English, French. German and Sjuiiush languages; History,Oeogrs ,?hies. Nam ml Philosophy, the practical part of Mathematics, and Draw 1 tuts of v annua kinds. Professors of divers ualiotu and acquiiemeuts reside iu the establishment; ?ud all the classes receive, in roUtiou, iustrucliou Groin the director. Such signal success has atteuded this plau of tuiiiou, that several of die pupils, uuder twelve years of aces, write and speak two foreign langu iges, in a perfectly intelligible manner, and those of riperyeors, correctly and etsitv. The acijuuitiou, not only of the Spanish, but also of other language*, is thus placed within the reach of the youth of the Uuited States, withont its being necessary for thi m to rclinqu' h the many advantages which accrue from auKnglish education. The object of the Principal in desiring to rective youths froin the United States, is to facilitate the acquirement of the Engl .th accent for his Spanish puiuls, which service would be doubly repaid them by by the latter, and to introduce here the manly spirit of the English schools. The young, cit?xeus of the Uuited States cau have nothing to fear from the climate, the house being spacious aud airy, situated in a healthful pot, it .1 abar! db bom from t ??? ^ity; and cout lining within its limits, a tine bath^ud complete gymnasiam for the preservation of the pupils' health. Two youths, lately arrived from Genna- 1 ny, have passed the summer iu the school in perfect health.

In pursuance of a notice in the late Gazette, a meeting was held at the Washington Hall to discuss the Exchequer. The great Texian hero and universal democratic chairman was appointed president, being well suited to be rated among a certain class whose character has been too faithfully l>ourtrayed by the immortal bard of Avon. " A sort of men whose visages Do cream and mantle like a standing pond; And do a wilful stillness entertain, With purpose to be dress'd in an opinion Of wisdom, gravity, profound conceit; As who should say, " I am Sir Oracle; Aad when I ope my lips, let no dog hark!" I Some difficulty was experienced in appointing a 1 secretary; but finally, after some little delay and confusion, this embarrassment was overcome; ihe meeting was then opened for the discussion of the Exchequer. Mr. Speed arose and said, that if there was any gentleman present who winhed to urge anything in favor of the Exchequer, he hoped he would do it, " otherwise," said S., "there is some probability that resolutions of rather a contrary character will he submitted." No proposition being made, Mr. Johnson offered a series of anti-Exchequer and anti-Tyler resolutions, which were di-cussed by that gentleman, Rr nald nnd Speed, b -fore the question was taken nn them. The editor of the late Gazette arose and spoke f or a long t ime in favor of the Exchequer; to use the speaker's own words, we are unable te say how successful Ins effort was in disjieliing error, or inducing investigation and a proper understanding of the subject. He spoke truth (unintentionally, however) when he said " he did an'icipatr very sudden convictions." We doubt whether he over induced unu tn ppfl.ipt iinnn fli*> rnEffor unrlor rluonco.on >? of what he even said, for never was more foolish arguments offered, or trasby sophistry used, hy any speaker, and yet he appeared so affected, and took ' such great pains to enforce upon the company what ' he said, as would make one well believe it had ' been well studied. " How his word* are suited, The fool hath planted on his memory An army of good words; and I do know As many fools, that stand in better place, Garnished line him, that for a tricksy word Defy the matter." t We would advise all good and true men not to put their trust in such as him. When a candidate J for legislation,in a late election, he declared himself a whig, a true whig, and no Tylerite. He de- ' nounced the charge of hia being a Tyler man with ' disdain, and pronounced it a false aspersion upon J his character and honor; and in the neat election , of President, he declared that he would be found in I the right place. Now what he considers the right place, would be hard to define. ' What rrscksr is this ssmo, that deafs our ears 'With this abundance of superfluous breath T" Mr. Speed rsnlied to the editor of the late Gazette, and literally used him up, to the exceeding delight of the audience. The etarnal Amos then rose to pour forth his eloouence. He spoke for some time, and might have been speaking yet, had he not been ordered to his seat. "Hespoksan infinite deal of nothing, more thin any man in the whole house. His reasons and arguments were as two grains of wheat hid in two bushels of chaff; you l IERA 842. shall 9eek all day ere you find them, and when you have them they are not worth theBearch." The question on the resolution was again ahout to be put, when the great Texian warrior rose from his chair, lay ing his hand impressively on his heart, uttered the following "a/< imo jttrinrr?"Gentlemen, can I, consistently wiih my views, consistently with mv well known principles, consistently with my dignity, consistently with tlie ledums ot my heart, (here he placed both hand*upon the seat ol his tender passions,) I sty. gentlemen, can I, consistently with all these tin nits, pin such resolutions to the meeting 1 No, 1 cannot. J must withdraw from the chair." The oracle thus having spoke, took his leave.? rionie little rmbarrasment was experienced to obtain anotherchairman. Aftersome difficulty, Mr. ripeed took the seat The question on Mr. Johnson's resolutions was then taken and passed, by a majonty of tour to one. My leper does not aHbrd room for the resolutions, or else they should be sent. When will the editor of the late Gazette get up another Tyler exchequer meeting 1 lu attending the introductory lecture delivered by the Professor of the Medical College, I could not help observing the unmannerly conduct of the students in general. Should one judge from their behavior on that occasion, he must come to the conclusi >n that they were totally devoid of refinement or decorous bearing, rk'nt should become them for the station tor which are intended ihey are both uncouth and rude in their carriage und manners. At the lecture of Dr. Y , delivered in the chemistry room,(being a lecture upon organic chemistrv,) lie students occupied, prii cipally. the two wings of the arena, Some sat on the back of the pew and extended their dirty boots over the back of the o|>positeseat?others would seal themselves lengthwise with the railing, and lean against the wall, supporting their lazy heads with a Cane, by putting it under their proboscis?quite a great number would retain uieir nuts upon uieir crumu ins, some cocked 10 one side, giving the wearer quite a quizzical or knowing look; others again would draw them close down upon their brows, assuming a grave look ol determination, such as blacklegs put on whilst playing puker at a bit ante. This should be In ked to, and the abuse corrected, as a large number of ladies are in the habit of attending, ?nd it must appear very disgusting to them ; besides, strangers would be apt to form bad opinions of the medical class, and not wiihout good reason. The weather h*B again moderated, being as warm and genial as the months of spring and summer.? Not a vest ge of ice can be seen in the river or creeks, which, but two or three days ago, were lull of large cakes ol Homing ice. Navigation has again o|>ened between this place and Pittsburgh, ihe impediment hitherto offered being removed. Little or 110 revival has taken place 111 business since niy last. Tue new theatre is still progressing, but will not be completed before spring. Yours A:c., Hawkeye. Philadelphia. [ Comxpoudeoce of the Herald.] Philadelphia, Dec. 10, 1842. James (Jorden Bknnktt, Esq:? Dear Sir:? Our goodly city has, at present, the peculiar happiness of containing several extraordinary lions, which, if they do nothing else, have the effect of keeping the mouths of the citizens extended with wonder, and their ears erect with astonishment.? There are the Seguins and Shrival at the The aire, and Milton J. Alexander at the Court-house?equal objects of attraction, and they draw equally crowded houses; the latter is the subject of operation during the day, while the former operate upon their subjects during the night?thus occupying between them both, the attention of our sober city, for about twelve, out of the twenty four h<?urs. It is a singular fact that the Seguins draw more crowded houses now than ever, and yet they are not so much admired as they formerly were. When I say that they are not so much admired, I do not speak of them individually, but as a rorpt, as which, of course, they include Mr. Shrival, who is not looked upon as equal to either Wood or Manvers. Another gap in the carp*, is the substitution ot Miss Coad (who is well enough lor an untutored child ol sixteen) for little Miss Poole, or Mrs. Daily, who were great favorites with us. The Manager is the only one who rears any advantage from this deficiency, for he is under lee* expense, and is in the receipt ol increased profits. The trial of Alexander for the murder of Lottfee. is drawing fast towards its close ; the senior counsel for the defendant, the Hon. Geo. M. Dallas concluded his most able and eloquent address to the jury this afternoon at 6 o'clock, and at 4 o'clock Ovid ! '. Johnson, Esq. (the Attorney General) commenced his lemarks on behalf of the commonwealth This gentleman is not so much distinguished for the brilliancy of his speeches as for the common sense view he takes of any subject, antl the forcible manner in which he explains and brings it home to the nttnd of every one of his hearers; he is seldom long in making his remarks, but he is always iKjwerful and explicit. He spoke until seven o'clock, when he concluded. He told the jury that in the conscientious discharge of his duty he whs compelled to ask at their hands, Hgainst the defendant a verdict of murder in the lirst degree. If the jury perform their duty, they will grant the request of the Attorney General, but that they will is very doubtful. , i On Monday morning Judge Barton in to churge the jury, and it is probable that on that day, or on Tuesday the prisoner's fate will be determined. The subject which has excited most asfoni.-hment ' amongst us, and which will be more than a nine 1 days wonder, is the rumored appointment (nnd I 1 have ascertained by authority only next to the Go- 1 vernor's, that the rumor is true) of the Governor's son, William A. Porter to the office of Sheriff of the county of Philadelphia, in the place of Henry Morris, lately deceased. This appointment has come like a thunderbolt amongst us, and astonish- | ed hoth parties, as well whigs as democrats; many aged an 'lioaiits. who thought thev ha J some richt to I ! expect the office, were disappointed ; and the whole community has been struck with the Corruption,and utter disregard of the public interest, and the public will, which has characterized the action of their chief executive officer. We have all witnessed with regret, the predeliction which Governor Porter has had to foist his relatives into lucrative offices, to perform the duties ol which they are entirely incompetent; he appointed his brother to a judgeship, which the latter resigned, lie apfiointed his nephew (a young man of about three and twenty,) prosecuting officer of Lan^a-ter county, and the present sheriff, (God save the murk) as soon as he attained the age of twenty-one, (which was not more than four months ago) was made deputy attorney general of this countv, and his talents were by no means equal to this office; vet, notwithstanding'his universally admitted fact, the Governor, ori the first opportunity elevates him to the important office of Sheriff, and puts him in possession of a salary, estimated at $10,000 per annum. This is certainly against every principle of delicacy and propriety, with a vengeance, and it makes the unsophisticated iliink that Porter is rather worse than hard cider ! thorns wise citizens propose us a remedy to this up [ ointment, to veto the further growth of any of the citizens of the community ; for they say if we are to have hoys for our chief officers, society in generaj should r.e composed only of children, f^ince this appointment hasbeen spoken of, and it has been ositively asserted that if Governor has no male relative, who can be appointed to the vacant judgeship of the court of General Sessions, it is his intention to send his wife to this city, and we shall be lonored by Mrs. Porter, assuming the mantle of our Prt sidpnt Judge ; land we have no doubt she would lo her duty belter and honester than many of the old women in breeches who now fill such situations.?Ed.

I |>erceive by your paper of the 9th, that you hare stationed, or intend to station, Mr. W. H. Attree ?t Washington. This, 1 think, will give general satisfaction to the readers of the Herald. Washington, during the sea-ion of Congress, is the scene ( many ot the most amusing and entertaining affairs. as well un matters pertaining to state, that transpire anywhere in the Union; and 1 think it is highly proper that you should have there a letter writer capable of reporting matters and things, in that graphic, philosophical, racy, original, and conuc style, lor which the " Herald" stands pre-eminent. The past week has been one of considerable incident in Baltimore. Signor Nagel has given two concerts, and gives a third one to night. Last night there was a mass lempcrancv meeting at Washington H ll,andagreat many signed the pledge. Oa Wednesday night the Independent Fire Com|>any had a grand hall at Washington Hall, which was numerously attended. Mr. Woodbury lectured on Thursday n ght before the Murray Institute; and Brother Moffit, who is still here, had a lot of line women to hear him last nigh' hi the Wesley Chapel. So you perceive there is some little stir here, tint we want a grand smash?something to write about. It is easy enough to write about nothing, but folks get tired of it. Business continues very flat here; several sales of flour have been m de through the week at $4 37J ; Guy Mills and Howard st. at #4 l'2J; the inspection for the last week amounts to 11,600 barrels, and 960 hall barrels. Next Wednesday is set apBrt for a day of thanksgiving; the morning is to be appropriated to praying, the middle of the day to eating, and the afternoon and evening according t? iltc fancy ot different persons. There will be a ball iu the evening, at which I tiuve no doubt " your most obedient" will be lound.

He dices like and much resembles the celebrated " Box," and cultivates an extensive und irresistible goattt. Though young, lie is married, und has a wile living up in Spring < iarden?the daughter of a highly res|<ectatile citizen, Charles Pearson, late of thePenn Township Bank. Mrs. Blackstone, every body knows is a splendid looking woman, voluptuous in fmure, form, taste and inclinations. Her husband is not quite the loveliest being, nor the youngest in the human creation. Mrs. B. has lour children, and was never suspected of being one of the Vestales. The lady and her husband discovered that their habits were uncongenial, nnd the two recently " agreed to disagree," and make a separation. The proi>erty was equally divided between them, but the iadv, taking a notion to el"pe with Mr. M'Dowell, with whom she had first picked up an acquaintance in the streets, nnd who had thus been made intimate with all the tumily, not only carried off her own share, but appropriated the larger |>orticn of her husband's. Mrs B. seems, indeed, to have been the principal offender throughont the whole matter. She acted with hold recklessness She not only made her mantua-maker, a Mrs. Porter, in Chester street, her lull confidante, hut bribed all her servants to secrecy, and thus practised the most flagrant improprieties with Mr. M'Dowell constantly in the very lace of day. She had the means to do this. Mr- Mc imwen was (wiiniless. rue was eomtorianiy ncn. Her mother, the celebrated Mrs. Yc?he, left ai her $1500 a y**^T? $>500 a year to Mrs B. in her right, and $1000 a year to Mr. ttnd Mrs. B conjointly. This $500 a year Mrs. B. lavished on McDowell, and paid out in various ways to conceal her liaiton. She even got money from her hunhand to buy linen, then took that linen and paid Mrs. Porter to make it up into shirts for McDowell! The guilty couple left this city together in the latterpart of last October- The day before, Mr. McDowell hi'ed a furniture car had it backed up in front of Mrs. Blacks'one's nouse, No. 168 north Eleventh street, (or rather he had it backed up against the adjoining house,) and had put in it five packages of clothing, bedding and linen tied up in sheets, which the carman removed from the garret. Mrs. IV superintending the whole mancnuvre. All this time her husband, Captain B., was absent from the city. A trunk containing jewelry, plate, female apparel, fcc.., wasalsonut in the car The servan'a of Captain B. stood looking on. Mi Dowell gave the carman orders to drive rapidly down to the corner of Eighth and Walnut street?the lady looking very excited. At the corner alluded to, McDowell overtook the carman, and directed the things to be taken to his office in Eighth street, a few doors below Walnut. The same day McDowell sold out all his office furniture to the kee|>er of a second hand store at Sixth and Race street. The next day the loving couple eloped, carrying all the goods with them, leaving this city early in the morning for Baltimore. Thence they proceeded to Cincinnati, where they arrived, and took board within two squares of the Mayor's office. As soon as Captain R. returned and discovered his less, he had warrants issued for the arrest of McDowell. Officers Woodruff' and Russell soon got on the track of the fugitives, and compelled them to flv from Cincinnati, where they were ex;>nsed, and turned out of their boarding house. They represented that they were going to Louisville, int m fact returned to this city, by way of Ualtirnore. The cause of this detour, was the receipt of a ctter by Mrs. B. from her confidnnte. the Mrs Por or. It sfcms, the Intrer had confided the whole ecret to a girl that had served her time with her, ind still worked for her. This girl, while working n the family of A. De Kalb Tarr, Esq , betrayed the ecret to Mrs. Tarr The latter told her husband; re told Oa|?'ain Blackstone,and apian was arranged o entrap the runaways. It succeeded, and they returned to this city. When the fugitives arrived at Chester, on their way herr from Baltimore, suspecting mischief, they nit up at Price's hotel, under the names of Mr. and Mrs ,T A. Smith, and Mrs. B. started alone forthia ity to reconnoitre. When arrived, she went to he office of her husband's attorney, B. H. Brews, er, Esq , to afcertam if there was a process out igainst her lover, but ostensibly to get the deed of reparation between her and her husband. Mr. Ir'-w-trr, having an eye to business, directed her to turn next evening, and in the interim communi ated with the captain The next evening she died, and was confronted by her husband Here he represented that she had abandoned Mr Mcdowell at Cincinnati. The Captain pretended infifference, and assured her that he should give litnself no further trouble m the premises, &c dec. She had taken board at Mrs. Emma Nugent's, Mo. 165 Race street, as Mrs. J. Smith. She sent word to Mr. McDowell that all was right, and he :ame up last Wednesday. When they met in the wrlorsnch a scene of hugging and kissing! "My lear husband!" and " My dear wife'" as well as ;very other term of endearment, were used s<> pro'usely as to excite suspicion. Folks really united ire rarely so affectionate I They employed a notorious person named Wright o go to Chester for their baggage. The order for it was signed by McDowell. Wbenhegol there, officer Fisher, who had been dodging the parties from laltimore, was on the spot, and discovered the bagMge by the ladies' full length portrait. He arrested IVright, took lutn before Squire Barfram. who offered him commuted in default of $1500 bail.? Wright gTew alarmed, confeawd all, and agreed to nd hi the arrest of McDowell. They returned to tins city, and at an eurly hour in Saturday morning, went to Mre. Nugent V and up to the chamber door of the parties Wright knocked, and assured them that all was safe. The -four was opened, officer Fisher pushed his way in, Mrs H rushed out of the rooin almost in pnrunnaurahbu* Hnd ran shrieking up the garret stairs. HcDowell was airested in bed. He dressed, went iver to Dohnert's, swallowed a tumbler of brandy, nd accomiwnied the constable to the police office, t here in default of #4000 bail, (#1600 on a charge f adultery, and #2600 to answer to the bill of inictment found against him for larceny,} he was ommitted to prison.
