Decision of tuk Court of Enquiry on Commander McKknzik's Cask.?We have received lrom our special correspondent at Washington, a corract copy ol the written Opinion of the late Court ol Enquiry,Commodore Stewart, president, in the case ol Commander McKenzie, and we hasten to givo it to our readers with as little delay as possible :? U. 8. SHIP NORTH CAROLINA, ) January 20th, 1S4S. ) Present. Commodore Chari.es Stewart, Commodore Jacob Jones, Commodore Alexander J Dallas, Oodkn Hofeman, Judge Advocate. The Court after due deliberation, resolve to report the facts and circumstances of the case submitted to them, i and to deliver their opinion upon the facts as follows.- ? In execution of the order of the Hon Secretary of the Navy, the Court, with the exception of ten of the crew, who are in confinement, examined every officer, seaman, and apprentice, belonging to tbe Un ted States Brig Somers, in her late cruise, and unanimously report the following facts as proved to the satisfacticu of the Court by the testimony, the record of which they have the honor herewith to submit. That on the 27th November, 1(42, in lat. IS 24 10, and longitude 41 24 46, Commander McKenzie discovered that a mutiny had boeu organized on board the brig Somers. The Court further finds that such meeting did exist, and that Midshipman rhilip Spencer,Boatswain's Mate Samuel Cromwell, and Seaman Llisha Small, were ringleaders in it, and that others of the crew had knowledge ot its existence and participated in its guilt. That on the 27th November, Midshipman Spencer was arreted and confined in irons, that on the subs quent day Boatswain's .Mate Cromwell and Seaman Small were also confined in irons, and at the time thev were so confined, it was the intention of Commander McKenzie to bring them to the United States to be tried by the laws of their country, and that to effect this desired object, Commander McKenzie adopted every measure that a brave, prudent, and skilful officer could adopt. That during the confinement ot the prisoners, sullenness, discontent, inattention to duty, disobedience to ordeis, often as seamen know, and naval records prove, the sole precursors to oj>en acts of violence and blood, were manifested by the crew, and justly excited the belief in the Commander and the officers. that an attempt would be made to rescue the prisoners and take the brig from those to whom she had been entrusted by the Governimnt. The Court further find, that there was no place on lioard the Brig, which would have given greater assurance of protecting the prisoners from a rescue, than the quarter deck, on wmch they were confined. That Commander McKenzie in the responsible situation in which he was placed, sought as it was his duty to do, the advice and counsel of his officers, and that the unanimous advice and opinion of those officers, after an examination of some ot the crews-and careful deliberation, was that the safety of the brig Somers depended up,in the immediate execution oi Midshipman Spencer, Boatswain's Mate Cromwell and Seaman Small. 1 hat Commander McKenzie, in pursuance of the advice ot his officers, and in obedience to the dictates oi his own judgement, did execute, by hanging. Midshipman Spencer, Boatswain's Mate (Tomwell, and Seaman Small. Tnatsucli execution took place on the 1st December, 1H42 in latitude 17 deg- 34m. 2Ss., and longitude 41 deg. 24m. 46s. and that the bri; ut the time of the execution, was, by the log, distant from St. Thomas 626| miles, at which place she arrived on the 6th December, 1842. The Court further find thxt the conduct of Commander McKenzie had been kind to his crew, attentive to their wauts, and their c.cmforts, that he was studious to promote their knowledge of their profession, and that no punishments were inflicted greater than were rendered necessary bv the discordant nature of the crew, and the proper discipline of a man of war. The Court further find that the conduct of Command'r McKenzie, Lieutenant Ganspvoort and the officers ol tho brig, was, during the trying scenes througn which they passed, collected, calm, and hrave, and justified the confidence reposed in them by their country. Opinion. TheCoirt are, therefore, of opinion, That a mutiny had been organized on hoard the United States brig Somers, to murder the officers and take possession ef the brig. That Midshipman Philip Spencer, Boatswain's Mate, Samuel Cromwell, and Seaman Klitha Small, were concerned in, and guilty of such mutiny. That had not the execution taken place, an attempt would have taken place to release the prisoners, murder the officers, and take command of the brig. That such attempt, had it been made in the night, or UUIIUK -VMM, " jU..s..rem?i iucv~i?>. from the number ?nd ehsrscter of the crew, the mall ire of the brig, and the daily decreasing phy lical strength ol the officers, occasioned by almost constant watching nnd broken ?lnmt>era, hare been successful. That Commander Mr.Ken7.1e, under these circumstances, was not bound ta risk the safety of his vessel, and jeopard the lives of the young officers, and the loyal of his crew, in order to secure to the guilty the formi of trial, and that the immediate execution of the prisoners was demanded by duty and justifled by necessity The Court are further of oplmon.that throughout all these painful occurrences, so well calculated to disturb the j udgment, an ) try the energy of the bravest and most experienced officer, the conduct of Commander McKenzie and his officers, was prudent, calm, and firm, and that he and they honorably performed their duty to fhn service and their country. (Signed) CHARLES STEWART, President of the Court. (Signed) OODEN HOFFMAN, Judge AdvocLte. This opinion is a very curious and a very remarkable one. The Court does not enter into a minnte investigation of the evidence, in reference to the three individuals executed, hut simply states the general convict ion or judgment of their own minds, without giving any reason, or connected analysis of the evidence, for coining to rucli a conclusion. This, probably, was the best way to treat this most singular and anomalous case. The justification ol Commander McKen7.ie, to have any weight with the government, the navy, or intelligent pubhc opinion, must be placed on othtr grounds than on its ;exact legal merits. In strict tioint of law, there was no evidence to convict Cromwell?and very little against Small. There was a conspiracy, but no mutiny. Yet we doubi not but Captain McKcnzie believed he did hit duty, when he ordered these awful executions stioh an act could present no attractions in its owr nature to a man of any humanity or religion, ant we doubt not the recollection of that awful day wil embitter ihe poor Captain's life as long as be lives Ga what Rround, then, should hie justification b< openly placed! The deed itsell has l>ern executed, and cannot recalled. What, then, is to he done! How is ii to be juatified! There is only one way, and lha' way is to be found in tin existence of a moral neces mty to pr> ?rve the discipline ot the navy and thr commercial service II'' iptain Mch? conduct were to be adjudged by strict rules of ihe civil law, he would be convicted - i( convicted, lie liuist Hlllrl the tonally of a violation of this law. Hut would not thia legal, technical conviction and punishment, tend to demoralise the naval and commercial service1? This is the only point of view in which he can be justified. Of its sufficiency, every person of common sense can decide. With all naval officers?with all shippin ? merchants?with nil j**r one connected with tli. commercial service, such a justification is generally admitted and allowed. With the great bulk ol tlit c<>mmuuity,unact]uuiiited with nava'.affairs, it is not ad mitted?or admitted in a very limited degree. They think. that human lite should not be so taken on .web grounds. (>urov ii opinion is not yet made up. We would not like 10 condemn |?oor McKer.zie without the strongest evidence?neither would we justify any man wiihajiy degree of authority, in hanging up at the yard arm three human beijigs without full evidence ot their g*uilt. It is a m?wt difficult and dtlicate affair?which the new evidence to be taken before the court martial may yet elucidate. We shall wait for the result of that trial?a trial of great and vital importance not only to Captain McKenzic, but to the navy?to the me/chant servise?and to the characterof the country. Captain McKenzie's case, thus tar, has been most injured by his very ridiculous and far-fetched narrative?aud this want of judgment has been aggravated by the melancholy and inaane course of the "CourierA: Enquirer' as his special advocate and organ. The tone of arrogance, tolly, brutality, and presumption, which that vapid journal has thrown over Mr. McKenzie's case, has created a prejudice throughout the country against him of no common order. This tone is still continued?for we find no longer ago than yesterday, that, in speaking of the two eminent counsel, Messrs. Butler and O'Connor, who made an application to assist the Judge Advocate, that journal calls tbem "would-be associate counsel," and basely insinuates that "no pettifogging pleas or speeches are ever required by a court composed of honest and honorable men." The brutality of these insinuations against Ben. F. Butler and Charles O'Connor, are not more disgusting to every fair and candid mind, than the gross impudence of insinuating and accusing the amiable and honorable Judge Advocate, of " ignorance," " lacking independence"?or " feeling that he is not qualified to discharge the duties of his station, and should at once resign his appointment." SsttnK lantrtiatrM?Qttplt i ncinup 1 mnQ? Itrnf nltfu O O ..v.. coming from any resectable press, indicates at once that their source has neither the feelings, the manners, nor the language ot a gentleman or an honorable man?that the editor must be some brutal creature, half made up by permission of the Almighty, for some inscrutable purpose, from the remains of some of those gross animal existences, which have disappeared from the earth in one of the geological periods of past ages. With the Liberal feelings?the enlightened sentiments?the generous temper of the present age?or the present race of mankind, such a creature is as utterly unacquainted as the Mephistopheles of Goethe, or the "devilupon twosticks"of the Spanish romancer was supposed to be when the Salamanca student released him from his bottle prison, for the purpose of insulting humanity by its counterfeit presentment. Faust and the poor Spanish scholar has reason to regret the aid and friendship of these devils. We hope that Captain McKenzie may have;better luck with their brutal descendant, and heir-at-law, the "devil upon two sticks" in Wall street. City Finances.?The ordinary taxes of the city have become very burdensome, and are still further increased by the interest on the Croton Aqueduct debt The present system of taxation, so far atconcerns personal property, is very imperfect. According to the present arrangement, the assessor's books are open during the summer season, and the assessments which they are authorized to make unlimited to that period, which is the very time when a large portion of our most wealthy citizens are absent from the city, rusticating. Thus a large amount of personal property eludes taxation. But a far greater evil is the escope from taxation of a vast amount of merchandize and other property owned by non-residents. By the present law, every person must be assessed on his personal property in the county where he resides. To elude taxation, therelore, persons doing business in the city have only to reside out of it. And this is ore reason why so many villages in this vicinity are honored and built up by New York citizens By the act of the Legislature, passed at the last session in relation to Common Schools, "The Board of Supervisor* ii required *o raiae, by tax a sum equal to the amount derived Irom the School Fund of the State, amounting, as is estimated, to about thirty-six thousand dollars; a further sum of one twieutieth of one per cent., upon all the taxable property in the city, estimated at aboat oae hundred and twenty thousand dollars; and such other sum as may be necessary, in the judgment ot the Board ot Supervisors, to he railed lor tHe support of common schools. In addition ta thia, they are required to raise auch surrs as may be incurred by the commissioners and inspectors of schools for the different wards, for the purchase or hire ef buildings therefor, and the establishment and organization of schools therein. The amount which is peremptorily required to be raised, exclusive of that whicn the Board of Supervisors may in their discretion raise, greatly exceeds, probably by sixty thousand dollars, the amount required for the contemplated oh. ject." A most extraordinary feature of this law is the unlimited power conferred upon the commissioners and inspectors of schools, to go to any extent they please, be it millions of dollars, in purchasing lots, building school houses at any expense, or hiring them at their discretion, lor the. use of schools. Tne Finance Committte of the Corporation has prepared a very able report on these subjects, and Counsellor Graham has just prepared several drafts of acts remedying and regulating these matters, to be forthwith presented to the Legislature for their action. Cask or Bkown ? This man, who has been imprisoned as an accomplice of Charles F. Miller in abducting Mrs. Miller, was brought up yesterday before Judge Kent on a writ of hatxa* corpm His counsel moved either for his discharge, or that he be admitted to bail. The pajiers were given to Judge Kent, who will examine them, and hear the case argued tlii- morning at 9 o'clock. Brown was remanded.

At the beginning of another year we again beg to rail your attention to a few remark!. Business hai, we fear, for the iatt six month*, not been very profitable, owingto embarrassments, to which we hope we shall herealter be Ion ivnnul C Vr% .1....>. nt il Pulu I The war in Florida having come to an end, the country in general hat remained tranquil. The boundary quer. tion with England liaa been fettled upon, [but not your bill at Cafe Tortoni] but tha question aa to the right of search was not fully decided upon, owing, we presume, to the diplomatic ingenuity of the former American Minister at Tana, General Cass. Since our last, of July 1st, a Tariff has been passed, which was in favor of manufactures and home inaustry, by raising the duty on foreign importations; the come, quencewas, that all foreign articles raised in price without an} increase of the demand for American produce, and consequently, the agriculturists of this country, who are the actual consumers of our foreign importations, received less for their produce. Another inconvenience in the late Tariff, is, the payment of the import duties in hard cash, which very naturally will (prevent consignments on speculation. [No doubt of it.] It is, however, hoped that this latter incommodity will be got over by the establishing of warehouses on the London principle, a most laudable enterprize. [Oh ! oh ! oh !] It is generally believed that Congress, now in session, will repeal the bankrupt law ; as also, in some way establish a national currency, both of which movements, will, we hope, greatly tend to re-establish the American credit abroad, not only of individuals, but also of the general government, whose credit is at present to much impaired and on a level with the individual credit, that it has been entirely impossible for it, within the la<t six months, to contract a trifling loan with any of the European banking houses. [Alas, poor Pete ] We Irowever now have to revert more particularly lo our own market. Ashcs. The demand through the year has been steady. The exports of Pot since our last, of July 1st, amounting to barrels A00 more than last year. We now quoted] cents. Stock on hand -J,640 barrels. Cost.. The inquiry for foreign is but little. Prices per chaldron, Newcastle, $6 60, Liverpool, $7 75. Csvfkic. We do not know, that for thirty years, the price ol Coffee has been so low as it is now. The European market being abundantly supplied from Brazil and the West Indies direct, produce having been preferred from these quarters to bills, on account of the high rate of exchange*, the demand for exportation from this port is none. Our last advices from Rio Janeiro and La Guayra, as to the probable result of the new crop are very favora ble. Brazil, 8$ cents ; Laguayra, 7) SJ ; St. DomiDgo, 5J 8 Cottoh. The demand has been very steady throughout the year, and the exportations lnrgerthan could have been expected. An increase in prices was loeked for in Octoher, on account of the fire in Liverpool, by which 40,000 bales were consumed, but it had no influence of any consequence upon our market. The amount of export from 1st September till 1st January is bales 349.843. Accord ing to advices as to tbe new crop, the quantity this vear is larger than any year before, amounting probably to two millions bales. Stock on hand 10,u0o bales. We now quote Upland, ft} B cents ; Mobile, 6 H} ; New Orleans 6 S}. Dvewoods. Sales are not extensive, and orders Irom the North ol Europe have been comparatively small this year. Flour a*i> Qraii*. The usual exportation to the West Imlies and South America have taken place. The consumption of foreign grain in France having this year been greater than ever, our corn speculators lound a new field this year, as mostly all the grain from the North of Europe'goesto the English market. Still, we cannot deny, that although this new market was o|>ened, the prices have been surprisingly low, and consequently trade in general been decreasing, as agriculturists, the actual consumers in the United States, cannot encourage trade unless they receive high prices for their produce. We now quote, Baltimore $4 00, Richmond, $4 00. Hides. The supplv and demand has been steady. Several shipments are continually making to the East and North. Hors. The unfavorable accounts ifrom Munsterberg, Silesia, as also from Bohemia and Bavaria, received here in September, caused a great demand at increased prlfces, 14 1 ftcts.being willingly paid. Irox. The inquiry is but little and holders are firm. Svoars. The stock on hand is very great and the demand being confined to low priced sugar, of which there is but a small quantity in market is not very great. The prices have been remarkably low. According to our last advices lrom Porto Rico and St. Croix the new crop will fall short one half of the usual quajtity, which circumstance probably will raisu tbe price of the remaining quantity of the old crop, of this denomination. We now quote, St. Croix, 6 fi} cts., Cuba 6 cts., New Orleans. 4 } ft cts. Tobacco. The demand has, as was anticipated, been very limited. Shipments on speculation, from here have BOtbeen quite as many as last year, awing we presume to the remarkably bad returns which always are made more particularly, of shipments to the Baltic. The stock on hand is large enough for the demand made. The new crop, particularly the Virginia, is not prime quality.? Trices are nominal. Wool. The market remains dull. Nothing doing in foreign. Exchange was influenced by circumstances, as there is no public institution devoted to this branch of business. The rate of exchange in July, August and September, were as follows; Jaly, 1st. Auirost, 6th. Bert., llth' Londcn 7 7% 6% fi% 7% 7% Fiance 6 37% 5 38 5 37% 612% 5 2>% Amsterdam, 38% 39 3t>% 39 39% lUmbort, 31% 3ft 31% 35 35% Bremen 75% 75% 75% 7? 75% 76. In the latter part of September, and in October, a large ?|iiantity of Bills came into market, from the South and rom Canada, drawn by the provincial government there, and consequently exchange fell. The greater part of these latter bills were taken by individuals at rates lower than what the Banks would take them, which circumstance |provad the abundance of specie, as also, the wil lingness to invest money wherever the party investing was secured. We now quote aa follows : London Aj a I OS, Paris 5 43 a A 45, Amsterdam 33) a 3?f, Hamburg 34} a 34}, Bremen 7ft}. Immkiratios. According to the last returns, the number af immigrants are for this year .51,800, of which 9,5:11 immediately returned.

Somethin must start up shortly to keep u* in a motion ol som ort bkattie Trial of Commander McKensle. Fifth Day?Feb. 6. The Court met according to adjournment. All the members were present. After the Court had remained in secret session for upwards of an hour, we were admitted. Midshipman Hays was called, and on his appearance was sworn. The JtJDaK Advocate then read to the witness the first charge and first specification, and was proceeding to examine him, when? Mr Dijer rose and objected. The course which tic Judge Advocate intended to pursue was in his opinion w holly unprecedented, and unjust to the accused. He intends, it appears, to examine his witness in the first instance, only on the first specification under each of the first three charges. If he (Mr. D.) was in order? President?If you have any argument, it must be presented in writing. Mr n*Tfi>D ? T hrtVft nn nrff'impnt cir tn 1 have only to say that the Judge Advocate is bound to submit evidence in support of all the charges before the accused can be called on for his defence. The investigation is not to be divided into three separate trials. Judge Advocate.?I have not yet announced my intended course. When 1 stop going on with the evidence, the objections will then properly come

up Mr. Duer.?I suppose it arises now. He intends to examine the witness only on the first specification If otherwise, he would have read all the charges and specifications. President?It is no mere than right that they should know your course They are now in the dark. I think it would be well for the Judge Advocate to read his pa|>er, so as to inform the accused of the course he intends to pursue The Judge Advocate then read a paper, in which he signified his intention of presenting all the evidence on each specification s*;xir<ife/y,aadslated (hat that was the only proper and legal way of conducting ihe case. It was true that the charges and specifications arose out of one transaction and the main instance* but the object of inquiry was, whether Commander McKenzie rightly put to death the three men, and testimony with respect to one might not have any thing to do with the others. Mr Duer?This course isen'irely unprecedented. I never heard of separating the charges in this way?the course of a public prosecutor always is? President-Your objection must be in writing Mr. Duer?If so, I must request a copy of the Judge Advocate's paper. The accused is not called on to give any defence, till all the evidence against him has been adduced. This has been the invariable usage. The Judge Advocate may separate his evidence as he pleases, but until the prosecution lias terminated its evidence, we cannot be called on for the defence. President?It is not intended that we should come to any decisipn on any charge, till the whole be gone through with. Mr. Duer?1 know that, sir, but if it is intended to examine witnesses on the first specification, and that then we are to answer on that, and then go on with the second in the same way, I say that would be wholly unprecedented. Wc are not to be called on to give our evidence until he is entirely through. He may separate his evidence as he pleases, but he cannot compel us to sej arate our defence. President?Do you require time to answer this pat**r 1 Mr Duer?I require a copy, in order to reply in writing. The Court was then cleared, and on its re-opening, in lilleen minutes, Fhe Jirooi Advocate stated that the Court had decided they should go on on all the specifications in their order, (as if one indictment ) Midshipman HaY3 was then examined. Afterdeposing that Midshipman Philip Spencer was arrest, ed, confined and executed by order of Commander McKenzie, at the dates mentioned in his former examination ; the witness was asked? Q.?From the time of his arrest till the time ol his execution was Philip Spencer furnished with any charges and specifications of crime 1 A.?No, sir. Q.?From his arrest until the time of his execution was there any investigation into Philip Spencer's guilt, or any crime against the laws of the navy made by Commauder McKenzie or any of the of. ficers of the brig Somers, in the presence of said Philip Spencer, so that he might know the charges against him, confront the witnesses, cross-examine them, and present proof of his innocence 1 A.?None iu his presence, sir. [The same questions were put under the specifications relative to Small and Cromwell, and the same answers given ] The Judge Advocate then said?After conversation with the counsel for the accused, I have determined to reserve charge 4th until I nave received the opinion of the Attorney General on the subject. In relation to charge 5th, I understand that it was put in in order to furnish Commander McKenzie with an opportunity of vindicating himself it he thinks proper. I thave seen no evidence to sustain the charge (of cruelty and maltreatment of the crew) and 1 must therefore abandon it. The case for the government is closed. Catt. Smith.?Should not some course be adopted by the Court in relation to this charge! Mr. Duer.?I considered that it had been abandoned by the Judge Advocate. Judge Advocate ?I have been precipitate, for the witness is still before the Court. Capt. Smith.?The Court may not concur with the Judge Advocate in throwing out that charge. For my own part I do not, and as the witness is on the stand 1 wish to put a question to him. But, it the charge be withdrawn by the government? Judge Advocate.?Oh! no, it is not. I said I was not famished with any evidence, but the Court may perha|>8 elicit some. The term " abandon," was u loose exoression. which I employed tor the iiiirnrnu of indicating that I had no testimony on the charge. Cait. Read.?Of course the charge is still open, and subject to our investigation. Capt. Smith.?I wish the log book brought in, and placed in the hands of the Judge Advocate The log book of the Somers was then brought into court. Jcdqe Advocate.?(To Captain Smith.) Do you wish it in evidence at present! Gait. Smith ?I wish it for the general purposes of the investigation. Capt. Boi.ton thought the charge objectionable on account of its vagueness. jttdfie Advocate.?1 believe the government was not furnished with any specific complaints. The charge was as I have already remarked, put in for the purpose of allowing Commander McKenzte an opportunity of vindicating his character relative to the treatment of the crew. Capt. Boi.ton?That ought to be left to himself. . The charge seems to me so vague that it ought not be entertained. Mr. Diter?Commander McKenzie of course wishes the charge retained. Capt. Boi.ton had intended to make a motion on i the subject and have it discussed, but he would now t refrain. The Court wus, however, cleared, and the members deliberated in secret for twenty minutes. On i our re admission, the following question was put to t Midshipman Hays:?Did Commander MrKenzie maltreat, or cruelly use,or punish unnecessarily, any of the crew of the brig Somers during her last * cruize! A.?No, sir. By no means. The testimony of Midshipman Hayswas then read ' over to him. ' Jtidob Advocate?I shall call no oiher witnesses, i The Court was again cleared, and so remained for ten or fifteen minutes. On the doors being again opened.

Mr. Dckh then suggested that whenever a long answer was given to any question it should be read over to the witness before his examination was proceeded with, in order that any error might he instantly corrected. He thought that courte would be more satisfactory. The Court acquiesced in this suggestion. The testimony of Mr. Wales was then read ovei 0 to him and approved. Capf.

Among them are the following ii stinguished chiefs and squaws:? Nah-pouce-push.e to, or Buffalo King?a famous Sac chief, sixty years old, covered with scars and honors of war. This noble old chief has killed with his own hand 1(10 Osages, 3 Mohawks, 3 Kas; 3 Sioux and 1 Pawnee. He speaks nine Indian dialecta, has visited nearly every tribe, and is one of the most noted chieltaius living. No-chee, or Man ot Fire, a Fox war chief; was distin. guished in the last war. Wa-con.to-kitch cr, an Iowa chief; one who communes with the Great Spirit?the Prophet. He is held in much veneration, and has visions, which lie communieatts to his tribe, and instructs them in spiritual affairs. Louie-te-un-ka, the Rihs, son of the Buffalo King; To. con-nee, brave in battle, quiet in pence, an Iowa, and Cow. hick-ko, sou of the principal chief of the Iowas, are three brave young war chieis.

Cho-tum Pe, on Iowa chief, and a squaw, Nonnos see, the She Wolf, a niece of Black Hawk, very ami' able, and proud of her uncle, belong to the party. Never have wi been visited by so large and so distinguished a party, and however high curiosity may be raised, the anticipation cannot come up to the reality These are no miserable,digraded half breds, but the wild warriors of the far west, terrible in war, in peace lull of kindness and hospitality. ft?-TO THE EDITOR OF THE HERALD.?We, the undersigned, Seamen boarding at the " Sailors' Home," having read the proceedings of a meeting held at the Shakspearc Hotel, on Friday evening, 3d instant, do hereby declare, that most of the statements, particularly the report read by Mr. G. B. Overs, are false and malicious misrepresentations. We do positively assert, that there is no clothing or any other store, that has any connection with the Home, hut a man is left entirely free to purchase wherever he rhooses. The assertion that the Sailor's washing is done in the house, is entirely false in evry particular. But on the contrary, there are several widow women, all 01 them having families to 'upport, hat come to the house every morning, who take what dirty clothes we have, bring them back when washed, and we pay them. The statement that the Home has the ?ir.-ct 01 reducing wages is so far untrue, that we will state a lew lacts in inference to the wages last summer. It is well known, that owing to the general stagnation of business, the greater part ol the transient ships were laid up, throwing a great many sailors out of employment, the wages consequently fell ; hut the landlords forgot to state at their meeting, who shipped the first man under wages, nor did they mention thot the wages in New York were higher last summer than in any port in the United States from Maine to Georgia. And we firmly believe, that it was nothing but the inlluence of the men boarding at the Home, that Kept the wages unto twelve dollars per month in the New York packets, when in every ether port they were down to eight, nine and ten dollars per month. In conclusion, we do cordially invite all who feel interested in the welfare of seamen, to visit us at the Horn", and we can explain to them the cause of the unrighteous opposition by some of the landlords of this city.
