Organization of the City Government for 1813. ?The itew Common Council for 1843, meet lor ihe purpose of organization, this day at 12o'clock?and immediately thereafter proceed to remove all the present office-holders, and to appoint new ones. The aggregate amount of officials of all kinds that will be removed and appointed, are probably about one thoxisand,with gross salaries equal to a million of dollars per annum. This is the largest quantity of "spoils" that any single Corporation, either Stale or City, has the control of in any part of the country. The number ol applicants for these offices are probably 5000 persons. If we include the wives and families ol these applicants, the number of men, women and children, waiting in anxious expectation ot the action of the Corporation, will swell to 20,000 living beings, besides much cattle, embracing horses, dogs, cats and rats. There will be a terrible excitement and commotion throughout the city, and especially in the Park, around the City Hall, among at least 100,000 human beings, which includes those unfortunates that will be turned out?those that will be turned in?and those that will be disappointed. The greater portion ol the appointments have already been prepared and agreed upon in caucus, but their names have only been guessed at as yet, except Jem Grant, No. 1 Ann street, who is certain lor barber, and those revealed by Dr. Vache's Newfoundland dogThun derer. What a singular scene is here presented this day in New York! how mournful an exhibition of erring human nature! how melancholy and ludicrous it presents the conduct of immortal beings! Because one set of men think oftener and better of a certain person called Henry Clay, who mends fences in Kentucky, than of another certain person called Martin Van Buren, who raises cabbages in Kinder- | hook, the former are deprived ol their pittance oi bread and cheese, and the latter receive it with open and hungry mouths. It is a complete and radical revolution in a peaceable way, for the complexion of one's opinion. After the division shul! have been made, what a wailing and weeping!?what cursing and swearing there will be among the disappointed ! Heaven forgive them, for they know not what they do. Xota Bene.?Tht evening edition of the Hrrald will contain a list ol those appointed, up to the hour of publication, at 3 o'clock. So look out. Presidential Movements?Mr. Van Btren's Position.?A very important movement has recently been made by the general committee of Tammany Hall, declaring itsell in favor of Mr. Van Buren for the next Presidency, and defining his position in the approaching convention, to be held in November, 1*43, or May, 1844. Here are the resolutions:? DEMOCRATIC REPUBLICAN GENERAL COMMITTEE. ? At a regular meeting of the Democratic Republican General Committee, held at Tammany Hall on Thursday evening, the 4th May, 1843, it was Kesolrad, That this committee cordially respond to the sentiments contained in the recent address of the Demo rratic members ol the Legislature, and that they regard the same as a true and faithful exnosition of the nrinr.i pit** anil preference* of the democratic party of thi* State Resolved, That thi* committee, while they will cheerfull) hup]>ortiuch individual a* ahall be designated by the National Convention lor the office of President of the United States, do hereby distinctly and unequivocally express their preference for Mabtin Van Beats, a* the candiilate to be supported for that station ; anJ they have lull confidence that in the National Convention to be cal* led lor the selection of candidates, the distinguished claims of our illustrious fellow-citizen to be again elevated to that position so recently filled by him, with honor to himself and uselulnesa to his countiy, will be acknowledged and acquiesced in. Resolved, That this committee deem it a proper subject to be left to the discretion of the State Convention as well to ilesienate the time el holding the National Convention for the nomination of candidates for the offices of President and Vice President of the United States, as to prescribe the made of selecting delegates thereto, this committee fully believing that that tiody will possess the dlsj>osition and ability to determine the matter in such a manner as shall be most conducive to the harmony of the democratic party, and the triumph of its principle*. Resolved, That we recognise Free Trade as constitut- ' ing one of the cardinal principles of Democracy, and be. lievs that a tariff for protection conflicts with the interests and rights of the people. ABRAHAM H ATFIELD, Chsirman. Dam'L E. Dklatah, J Gao. H. Pcasaa, \ 8ect?*?"e? It will be perceived from this declaration that the friends ot Mr. Van Buren have abandoned all their own ground, and taken up a secure position on the platform of Mr. Calhoun. The recognition ol "free trade" as a " principle of democracy," or in other words, " a revenue tariff," is precisely the point insisted upon by South Carolina. So also in regard to the mode and time of holding the National Con vention. By this movement, Mr. Van Buren intends to give Mr. Calhoun no ground of complaint?no exclusive topic of agnation. The whole contest will now be reduced to a question of persons between Van Buren and Calhoun?for there is no difference in principle. It is true there are three other candidates?Buchanan, Cass, and Johnson ; but these latter are nominal, unless there should be such a division between Calhoun and Van Buren as to produce a union on some third man. In that case, General Cass has the best chance?for as to Captain Tyler, we do not see that he is thought of at all. I asmm4rk Cooeea rrrsui Watson Wkiib?We learn that Wataon Webb has gone again to Otsego, or thereabouts, to be tried on the old indictment, brought against him by Fennimore Cooper. If ever an editor libelled an auihor, Webb libelled Cooper?yet we never thought that Cooper was inlured by the ribaldry of Webb- and we would think more highly of Fennimore, it lie bad trust* d to the moral eminence of his name and character than to the small business of building it up out of indictments, libel suits?and legal prosecutions. Cooper can gain no honor by such a contest?he only places bimaell on a level with his antagonist. Unmerited Maimer is dcbi treated wim conte mpi.

WE1ISTKR AND RoiUtBT TVLKH ?John JoBfS of the Madisonian, on the authority ol Mr. Robert Tyler, contradict* a statement relative to Mr. Webster which appeared in our journal of last week, as follows:? The New Tore Heealk?We are authorised to Contradict, in tha atruDRcEt termi, the declaration made liy the alitor ef the^Herald, that Mr. Robert Tyler has writ ini a iciin >u aiuci uinu ivwir, IU Willi U lie CA^Iv:marm gratification that "wo have gotten I id ot Webater at laat." No one but a more unfeigned respect for the groat talent* and eminent services ol Mr. Webster than the son of the President; und if the Secretary of State retires from the Cabinet, no one will regret the necessity of bis official separation from the Government more than this gentleman. Notwithstanding this denial, we re assert the substantial accuracy ol the statement. Perhaiw the exact words may not have been used by Robert Tyler, but that he stated the fact ol Mr. Webster's withdrawal is positive. Indeed"? the very terms of the denial admits the general accuracy of the statement. John says " it the Secretary retireafrom the cabinet no one regrets the necessity of his official separation more than Mr. Robert Tyler." What " necessity 7* What "necessity " was there for a separation 1 The " necessily" exists in the belief entertained by Captain Tyler that Mr. Webster's continuance in the cabinet was an obstacle between him and the " democracie." This curious idea had been impressed upon the President and his son, by the office seekers here and elsewhere for the last year. Major Hopkins, Major Noah, nnd whole lots of democrats, have been preaching up the idea. We know that Capt. Tyler did not want Mr. Webster to remain so long?but the difficulty was to get him out in some decent way. Hence, when Mr. Webster made up his mind to retire. Captain Bob writes letters announcing the fact exultingly, but coupled with regrets for the " necessity." Yet we do not conceive it to be a matter of much importance either way?but it may be as well to understand the facts as not. We are afraid, however, that the sequel will show that the separation of Mr. Webster from the Cabinet will not unite Captain Tyler and the democracy very lovingly together. Yet there is no harm in trying?and if he be deceived, it will not be the first time the amiable, believing Captain has been most egregiously duped by those who call tnemseives nis friends par excellence. One word of advice before we part. If Captain Tyler and his friends, Bob included, would confine their attention to the great interests of the country ?to foreign negotiations?to public affairs?and to pay less heed to these silly coquettings after the " democracie"?or attempt to get a nomination by any convention, he would do himself much more honor in the end?and have his claims more cordially cx&minedby the country. These weak and vascillating efforts to create a party, or to catch the democracy, by establishing newspaper organs on for ced contributions, or using the patronage of the government to that effect, will end most disastrously for his reputation and his popularity. Take caretime is yet. Wedr's Bonnett Trade.?The Amazone bonnet trade so vigorously plunged into recently by Mr. Webb, begins to make a great noise in the world? almost as much as his duel. We find the following curious passages respecting this trade in our cotemporaries round about the country:? gg- Those desirous of adorning themselves with Amazone bonnets ran seethe best specimens on the pave any evening after ten o'clock. Col. Webb tried to make them ! exclusively fashionable; but the demoiselles of pleasure (!) would not be deprived of an old established right?to wear an article out of fashion ere the other ladies touch a finger to it. This practice tends to keep out of respectable society many anbecoming articles of wearing apparel, and we are glad that the ladies du pave insist upon retaining their ancient privileges?AT. V*. Timet. Amaionc Boisiscts.?This new fashioned bonnet, about which so much has been said, is made of a species of Manilla hemp, and at Manilla is manufactured iuto hats and bonnets, and worn by the poorest people. They are kicking up tin thiniy extraordinaire?as Placide used to say? in New York about them. By the wey, the American Amazone fonnet i? ma'o of American hemp, and quite equal it i* said to the foreign. They will wear for years; they can be washed, bleached, or altered in shapo at the will of the owner, and they can be made of any hue or color? Phil*. Timtt. The new fashion Amazona bonneti are of American manufacture, and are made of common American hemp. They are so beautifully made up that they equal the choicest foreign fabric. It is said they will wear for years; they can be washed, bleached, or altered in shape at the will of the owner, and they can be made of any hue or color?Baliimort Sun. In all this there is some truth mixed with error. The Amazone bonnet, so warmly patronized by Webb, is only the common Manilla bonnet, manu. iactured of Manilla hemp,J or grass. They are not made of American hemp. John Burton, 92fc Bowery, sells them from 92 or $2 50 to 94 or 95, and has been doing a good business. Webbjit appears, entered into the speculation?called them Amazone bonnets?puffed them outrageously?charges 96 for them, and announced that he would buy all the cheap ones at the office of the " Courier & Enquirer." It was a very funny thing all through. To see Webb, on his last legB, trying to get up a " con ner" in the bonnet trade, as lie once did in Morris Canal stock, is one of the most ludicrous things of the day. The best joke is the attempt to pass them off for something'superlative upon the fashionable world, under the name of "Amazonea." Ha ! ha ha! Chamber of Commerce.?There is to be another election for the officers of the New York Chamber of Commerce?and it promises to be a warm contest?a sort of tempest in a boiling tea-i>ot?in which either the mighty principles of a revenue tariff, or those of a protective tarift, nre to predominate.? i wo parties are already in tne neid, tne " drab-gai ters," or Yorkshires," who are in favor of free trade, or the " eel-akins," or " pure Yankees," in favor of a high tariff- It will be a funny contest, I and promises to convulse all Wall street, and a bit of Maiden lane. Chatham Theatre.?If there be any theatrical manager in this city more deserving of support than another, that man is Thome, of the Chatham. He la ever on the alert to Becure the first talent, and also to present to the public the latest and most popular works of modem dramatists?not forgetting at intervals to give us a taste of the more finished, phiosophical, and witty, old-school writers. To-night Mr. Fonest and Miss Clifton, who have been engaged for a few nights, appear in Payne's tragedy of "Brutus, or the Fall of Tarfpnn," supported by Messrs. Thorne and Marshall The entertainments conclude with an admirable melo-drama entitled the "Gambler's Fate"?more than sufficient to ensure a full house. From ftoi'th America.?Oapt.

The great and truly aublime religious drama that i* annually performed in this truly great and glorious city of New York, commenced in eameat last night at the Tabernacle. The occasion wu the Annireraary of the Seamen's Friend Society ; one of the very best and worthiest societies to be found in the country, of which this is the Fifteenth Anniveraary. The spacious building wu crowded with the intelligence, honesty, beauty auid beat feelings to he found in the city ; and it wai a most delightful and heart-thrilling sight to witness the large assemblage of truly beautiful young women present, not from mere idle curiosity, but from a sincere dosiro to hear and learn how they could best advance the comforts, happiness, temporal and starnal prosperity of those who " go down to the sea in ships !"?the temporary monarch* of the mighty deep? the sailon ! The officers of this Society, we regret to say, were in one particular excessively stupid; they did not make the (tightest effort or arrangement for the accommodation of the reporters. This was a most miserable oversight; inasmuch as this as well as 'every other society in this and every other country, mainly depsndafor its support increase, and usefulness,upon the press. Another evil has to oe complained of; the place was most miserably lighted;indecd after the re|>orters had with much difficulty luggad a table, and one chair, from an adjoining room, atidhorrowed an inkstand from a neighboring store, it was with much difficulty that they could see to write at their table, although it was placed close to the platform. Among other interesting sights, there wu a largo procession of sailors, who took their seats in the gallery, and displayed three banners of blue water silk, on which were inscribed:? oooooooooooooooooooe0 ?

" o 1837' e WWWWWW00000900Q003 www The exercises of the evening were opened with a very short, but very beautiful and appropriate prayer by the Rev. Mr. Teck; we believe that wan the name, but the man who gave it out mumbled so miserably thnt it was next to impoiaible to underatand him. The Annual Report was then read; the substance of which was aa follows j On most of our steamboats no intoxicating liquors are used. In 03 vessels from the port of Cleveland, no intoxicating liquors are used. In many of our men of war there is no piping for grog. Vessels that used to carry novels enough to load down a camel, aod darken the mind of a heathen, now carry nothing but bibles. Of 163 Sailor Boarding Houses in this city, 10 of them are Temperance Houses. The Report went on to say that it believed the keepers of the remaining 147 to be honest, and that they would not willingly rob a sailor. The Sailor's Home in New York during the last year had received '2978 boarders; this being 186 more than the London Sailor's Home had received during the Arst three years after its establishment. There were 134 sailors in the Sailor's Home on the 1st of May, many of whom are unable to pay their bills. Many have been wrecked at sea, but more have been wrecked on shore One of them, within three days alter he landed, was robbed of $100 by women. Owing to the distress in the (commercial world the Sailor's Home has run in debt during the last year. A sailor went to sea in December last. $17 in debt te the Sailor'a Home; he returned 3 days ago, paid the $17 and thanked them for trusting him. Ha is now gone a short voyage and when he returns he is going to see his ' mother. , The operations of the Society abroad have been very successful in Cronstadt, Cape of Good Hope. China, Honolulu, Havre, and particularly in the Fejee Islands. The finances of the Society stand thus:? Receipts during the past year 12,992.70 ] Expenditure do do 13,786 62 ' Society in debt $792.9-2 1 36 converts have been made in Savannah, a great many , in Charleston, and any quantity in Philadelphia; very j (ow in Vnnr Vnrlr wo orn snrrv Irt Btiu On our Lakes there are 25 vessels which have pious Captains. In the city of New York no less than five captains connected with ene Commercial House, have been converted to Ood. The report concluded as it began, in a poetical style, with the hope that the time would soon arrive when Christ shall reign from sea to sea, And nations shout the Jubilee. A most delightful piece ol Sacred Musi': was then performed by the N. Y. 8. M. Society. The cleir d?licious tones of the voices of the young and beautiful females in the choir half enchanted those who saw and beard them. The Reverend Mr. Holmes then rose to speak ? He is a very worthy and most excellent man, and a valuable laborer in the sailor's cause. But he is a very poor speaker; and his speech was so long ond prosy, and so little ts the point that the audience were thoroughly tired out before he concluded. We trust that the other worthy and excellent gentlemen who have to speak daring the week, will avoid committing a similar error. He said, " A sailor is a social being ; and he will apin his yarn : and if he can spin it no where else, he will spin it in the outhouses of the Devil ; I mean those places of female resert where man sharks abound ; and which I regret to say are so abundant in this and every other city. I need not go in detail^ for you will all undestand what I mean. If a sailor when he comes on shore cannot unfold his tale to any one else ho will to those women who affect to treat him kindly, and smile only to devour. Therefore we must provide a home for him?a ?;ood home?you must give him a clean bed, and a room urnished for intelligent men and not for animals. By sailors, I do not mean every heart that is locked up in a blue jacket, or every head that wears a tarpaulin ; because there are such things as fresh water sailors. (Here the real jask tars in the gallery brode out into three rounds of applause.) But a genuine sailor is one ef nature's no- 1 blest works; and if all religious men were trained as well as Jack is, wo shouldn't have so much ecclesiastical democracy as wahave in our churches?(Here the whole audience broke out into laughter and applause)?for Jack is so used to obey, that he'll pull at any rope in the ship, where his putting can be of any uso | and not pull one way when hi* messmates are pulling another." He went on lor aome time indulging in penaralit ea of very little intereat, and concluded by paying?"Above all. the women of our conntry ahould embark heartily in thiacauae in which they are ro deeply intereated. And they do and will; for there'* that placed in the heart of woman, aa you'll aee presently when the plate is paased round.?I do not mean to aay.it will comeback tilled with gold watchea and diamond rin^a, aa at aome places ; but there la a aomething planted in woman which ahowa that she can feel for a aailor. and (or what he suffers A landlady can quiet a room lull of noiay and half drunken aailora, when the landlord's voice would only increase the noise ; and they'll say, 'Yes, mother, we will be still.'

Another piece of music was moat admirably performed. A aailor in a round jacket, named Welch, then roar and said : Ladies and gentlemen?Behold the wonders of Ood! I rise to address you to night, who a short time ago was a poor drunken aailor. It nas Ml to my lot to toil upon the treacherous ocean for 27 years; oDd when Handed in yeur country at Salem, Massachusetts, (although bit wage* wen; $18 a month on the voyage.) I ha l"nt as much as would pay turnpike for a walking stick. (Roars of laughter.) Alter I'd been ashore for 11 dura, I had 122 glasses of grog chalked up against me (Laughter.) I could get a ship, but I could only get a month's advance, $12, and as that would'nt pay for my rum bill. I shipped in the States'service, under the late Capt. Perry, now more recently Commodore Terry, in the lrigate United States, and with 450 wicked and drunken men like meself, I set out to seek the kingdom of Ood. One Sunday a pious man of Ood came aboard our ship whilst I was a-making a straw hat, and asked me if I could'nt And some other day to do it; 1 said, " it's none of your business, (laughter)?I'v* b?en to church onst to day, and onst is enough for a sailor." (Laughter.) But I went down after to the berth-deck to ridicule him, but his sermon told my life so eiactly that I said, " Sir, how csmo you fn nrAarh that nhnnt hof/ir* mv 1" And then tear rolled down that pious man's cheek, which broke my heart all to pieces, which shot and shell could nt do in 37 years. (Applause. The pearly tears trickled down the eheek* ot many a voting and lovely face before the old sailor.) Well, ladies, 1 hsd'nt then saved a penny in 38 years that I'd hern in the devil's service, for he's a had master. (Laughter.) But many a night after, in the fore chains of that frigate, I've cried to Ood to have mercy on me a poor drunken sailori and down in the main hold on the old hrrerhings of guns, and on the old junks of cables, and he heard my prayer, and gave me salvation.

But 1 stuck to cold water, and in one year I had $100 in money, plenty of clothes, and a bible and prayer honk.

Well, I am a turncoat, because I turned off the drunkard's Jacket, and pat on the temperance jacket. (Laughter and applause.)

Arrest of Shipmsn.?The tallowing account is from a Philadelphia paper of yesterday t Abbkst op SmrMsN ConriBMr.d On Friday last intelligence reached here through a Terre Haute, (lnd.) paper, of the arrest of Jacob Mhipman; the absconding messenger from this city. Yesterday lettera were re ceived trom the Postmaster at Terre Haute by most ol the broker* who had entrusted package* to Shipman on the | day of his flight. The following is a copy of one of those letters: I Tkkra Hautk, Ia., April -18,18-13. Dear SIr:? On the '23d instant, in McCauprn county, Illinois, Jacoh , ShipmaD delivered into the possession ol Thos. D. Brooks i and myself a package of hank note* and drafts, amounting to five thousand three hundred and twenty-two dollar*. I Said package wo* opened by Mr. Shipman in our pro- j lence, and at our instance, and the contents found to correspond with the letter of advice enclosed. It was addressed by yourself to Messrs. Drew, Robinson & Co. New , York. We followed Mr. Shipmen from this {dace. We have had a severe ride through the Illinois prairies, and have incurred considerable expense, which we trust will I be duly considered by you in tne directions you may give us relative to the disposition oftho aloresaid package? , Mr. Shipman will return to your city by the first steamboat. lie appears desirous of doinr what he can to make amends for past errors. ery respectfully, Your obt. servant, J. O. Jones, I\ M. Koskut Johnson, Esq., Philadelphia. All the other letters received are similar (o the above, and say nothing as to whether Shipmnn is in custody or , at large. The letters received, so far at we know, are only to such brokers as entrusted Shipman with sealed i packages, and nothing is said of the loose cash which he is known to have taken with him. Of funds ofthis latter 1 character, from two brokers alone he had $'2,600, and ! may have had from others much more. The letters to our ( brokers are dated and franked by the Postmaster at Terre Haute, one day belore the newspapur of the same place i

which brought the news hereon Friday, and yet they did not arrive until Sunday, two days afterwards, making 1 a difference of three days. Considering tho amount of money involved in the transaction, and the large rewards offered for the fugitive, tho information us yet I communicated to the parties interested strikes us as ' meagre and studiously unsatisfactory. Curious and Important from Texas.?We received last night, via New Orleans, the following news lrom Mexico and Texas. It is now certain that the government of the ( United States, Great Britain and France, have . joined in remonstrating against the predatory war ! carried on by Mexico against Texas, and the instructions to our minister are quite explicit in declaring the war as conducted by Mexico, to be contrary to the laws of nations. There is little doubt that the United 3tates Charge in Texas, has been directed to offer the mediation ofeur government between the two powers, and to discourage retaliatory irruptions into Mexico. The Commissioners of Texas, who arrived in New Orleans a few days before the sailing of the Texian fleet, had instructions from President Houston to demand the vessels of war from Com. Moore and to apply to the United States authorities for aid in taking possession of them in case the Commodore refused to surrender them. They had likewise a proclamation from President Houston denouncing the expedition as piratical and unauthorized by government, in the event the vessels could not betaken. Com. Moore, we are informed, intimated to the commie sioners that he would proceed to Galveston and kave a talk with the President upon the matter, which induced them to keep quiet until he got ready to go to tea. One of the commissioner* went on board the Austin with the Commodore, thinking to hare a pleasant trip to Galveston in a government vessel; but we learn through a gentleman who also set sail in the Austin for Texas on a matter of business, that the Commodore informed him at the Belize that if fhe was anxious te get to Texas soon, he had better get on shore as he did not expect to be there himself in a hurry. The gentleman took the hint and left the ship?tho Commissioner is in all probability at this time in Campeachy. The Commodore apologized to the gentleman for not having informed him at New Orleans that he did not purpose sailing for Texas, saying that it would not be prudent for him to have disclosed his desti nation ai;an earner perton. We learn alto, that the last packet carried out an official notification to Judge Ere (our Charge in Texas) of hia recall, and the appointment of Wm. 8. Murphy in hii place. 0(7" A large and highly lashionable audience visited reale'a New York Museum last night, to witness the wonderful feats performed by Miss Darling, the accomplished enchantress. She is so graceful in her movements, so lady-like in her manners, and withal has such a fascinating and bewitching way, that the gentlemen tender themselves willing captives to her magic spells. Delarue gave his imitations of Kean, Kcmble, Booth, and Forrest, with such a vividnees and force that one might almost imagine those eminent tragedians were present in propria pertona. Bvndall's comic singing was greeted with rapturous delight, La petite Cerito's dancing was encored j with the utmost enthusiasm. The charge of admission, ] including curiosities, performances, and picture gallery, is only one shilling. to7- THE HOME ; OR FAMILY CARES AND FAM1LY JOYS?By Fredenka Bremer?Translated hy Mary Howitt Preface?The speedy appearance of these vol umes alter " The Neighbors," is a sufficient proof of the success of that work. Indeed the evidences of this sue-, cess have been too unequivocal to have escaped any one ; and perhaps it would be difficult to decide which has been most gratified hy it, the author or translates The most kind and cordial, I may say the most neighborly manner in which "The Neighbors" have been received, both by the press and the English public, has not only gone with a grateful delight to my heart, as an evidence that whatever is sound and good, come whence it may, will be heartily welcomed by my own proud and nobleconntry, hut hasf flown on rapid winds to the North, and given a charming surprise to the excellent authoress. Before the copy which I had requested my publishers to forward to her. had reached Stockholm, Miss Bremer had received various letters from her countrymen in London, congratulating her and themselves ou having seen " The Neighbors" receive such handsome " neighbor's fare" in tho literary circles there. No feeling is so dear to the heart of an author, who is conscious of writing for the improvement as well as the pleasure of his fellow men, as to find the sphere of his usefulness suddenly, and as it were by miracle, immeas- . ureably widened. To learn, therefore, at once that she . was not only read and beloved in England, but that with- ( in a month after its appearance in London, " The Neigh- , l?ors" was reprinted in the great United States newspaper, 'The New World," and diffused all over that vast country, and read in the wildest regions of the back woods, while a good edition was rapidly passing through the American press, we may believe was no indifferent intelligence. Indeed, the high estimation in which the liters, ture of England is held in the North, makes it a proud circumstance to any one to he introduced into it, and warmly welcomed there. Miss Bremer, in a letter to me, says, with her usual modesty, on this subject?'" England har en sa rik, sa uthildad roman litteratur, och mina skrifter aro sa ojemna, sa fulla afbrister, att jag knanpt forstar kuru? the fastidious, refined society ol England?kan amalta de??a nordiska ra-amnen !" England possesses a { romance literature so rich, so fully developed, and my . writings are so unequal, and full ot faults, that 1 can hardly understand how the fastidious, refined society of Eng- ( land can digest these rude, Northern materials. But letters from all classes of English society, and from . the members of the very highest, shew me how enthusi- ] astically these ra-amnen hnva been welcomed;so thst good , husbands have, far and wide, been complimented by their , wives with the agreeable names of?Bears. As "The Neighbors'" might be regarded ns a salutary , picture of new-married life, "The Home," I think, will lie found equally charming and useful as a picture of fnmi- , ly life during the growth ol the children. A sketch of ; home discipline, in which is saen, how, without great worldly fortune, or extraordinary events, a deep interest , may gather aliout a group of individuals, and how faults , and failings, and diversity of dispositions, which without ( the great saving principles, love and good sense, made to work themselves out, and leave behind them a sreneof harmony, aft'ectien, and moral culture, most charming to j contemplate.

(K7- TO THE PROPRIETORS OK THE CONSOLIJ lated Copper Mine on the north aide of the Blue Ridge, Warren County, Virginia, on the land of John Stinsons? Gentlemen 1 have the honor of laying before you the 'oliowing report reapecting the above mine In my travela through the various parta of the moun:aina,' first made tho discovery of the course of ore leadng to the above mine, aa I passed along the road. I then ook the course of the vein, and followed it on to John Stinaon's plantation. The vein enters the north-east end >f a small mountain running parallel with the blue ridge. On this plautation, I found that the vein had been opened ighty years ago, by some of the British settlers, before he Revolutionary War ; and whether they were driven sir by the Indians or Americans, I have not been able to ascertain. However, be this ns it mny, the mine was abandoned Some of the ore i found lying on the surface, near tho old shaft, which induced me to make some further search I louad several places where theyhad worked, but the old shaft was nearly filled up to the surface ; but ?n examination, I found the vein within three feet of tho iopofthe ground, which induced me to commence opening aut the old shaft. Now, from long experience in all the various branches of the mining business, and Irom frequent observations in my travels, as well as in tracing the mineral veins to great depths, both in Europe, America and the West Indies, 1 have had an opportunity >f gaining information in the offices I have filled, which :nahles me to form a moro correct opinion of the geological formation of veins and of the earth where these nineral veins are found, than if I had acquired my infornation from theory alone ; and I have taken every precaution that I may be as accurate as possible in my remarks with regard to the prospect and probable success of the nines, and of getting a true method of bringing them into i productive state of operation, upon a systematic plan, vith as little expense as possible. But as it is a matter of iuch great importance, you will no doubt make every illowanee for me. I will therefore in the first place give i ou a description of the shaft and the present state of the nine. This shaft is sunk between 60 and 70 feet on the vein, vhich continues good the whole depth. Specimens of the >re can be seen at any time from the surface to the bottom if the shaft. There, is also a large quantity of ore raised to >ank, I should suppose about 100 tons, that would average rom 15 a JO per cent. This shaft is well fortified from tho op to the bottom; in fact she^a closely curbed up the whole way, and the vein ia standing untouched on the north and .1. -:.l . 11 v_.? TI.!. .I..A II VII..I in tl... clear, large euaugh to go down 400 or 600 feet if necessary, she is also located so that the windlass can be removed and a horse whim be put up in its place. In laying of this shall I had an eye to the approaching summer, when it will be necessary te have the mine well ventilated; con. iequently a partition would have to be put into the shaft from the top to within about sis feet of the bottom, it must be four feet from the southeast end of the shaft so that if necessary to put in pumps ; their would be room enough for a man to go down and stand upon the collerings to change the buck e.s without stopping the work in the main shaft. But there is no call for this at present as the air is good and no danger of water until you are down too feet, by that time an addit level ought to he put into progress. As this is alwsys considered to he the riost economical plan by all practical and scientific men fo drain mines of water, and this level can be obtained without much expense to the depth of 16? fuet. The level will cut through ither branches of the vein as it approaches towards the haft, as she will go in nearly right angles through he strata towards the shaft. This shaft being Irained one hundred and fifty feet would be a great idvantage, and of course it will give you more backs to work out than you would be able to work for many years without the necessity of pumping water. This is a great consideration, and the ore that you will obtain in that lepth on the whole course of the vein will he more than ;-ou can smelt fur '10 years te come, and admitting that the >re should get no richer than it ia now, it will yield many bnndreds of thousands of dollars; but we always find the >re to get better as we go down, and again this addit level would not only drain the mine and give a large quantity )f backs to work upon, hut it would answer for a railway !o bring the ore out to the mouth of the level in little waggons 3 X 2 feet sad 18 inches deep, thus the ores would lie convenient, as the furnace would stand close by he mouth of the level); thistwould also do away with the expense of waggoning, which is very heavy item (in jur mining expenditure the expense of drawing water, ire and other metals, or all the refuse 160 feet, takes up t great deal of time as welt as expense in the course of one y?nr, what will it be in 20 or 30 7 You have no horsps to keep, you have no corn to buv, you have no hay to buy ; but again, admitting you had to go below this level, site would answer as a drift, that you might pump your water where it would tun ofl'instead of taking it up 160 feet the top of the shaft. This would also enable you always to have plenty of water by your furnace, for the purpose of washing the ore if necessary, and for other T-l 1. eturl.,,1 In I I, I . ?l, ?n nn Ihe court* ot the rein?one south, 30 west, and the other north, 30 east?ready to be put into operation for the purpoae ol raising the ore from the mine, or to enable any gentleman to see the lormation of the rein*, as well as its richness at the different depths, teas to form a correct idea upon the progressive richness of the ore as we go down in depth. I have also driven a crosscut through the vein, so as to prove the the thickness of it; and I find it at the depth of 30 feet, 11 feet thick, and at the depth of AO feet, 13 feet thick, and it appears gradually topiicreaae both in richness and thickness as we develope It. The gor.en or blossom on the surface is in great abundance through the v h*le plantation, mixed with the green carbonate of copper. The mattrix *r wallsof the vein are well defined, and in general very regular up to the sur Tace; the component carta of it are porphyry mixed with |ipaom,blue,green, red carbonate *f copper, and at present we have some tracer of native copper; but I do not expect lo come to much of the sulphurate ol copper thiadepMi. The sulphurate, the parateez, the grey and black copper eres arc not found so near the surface in working the Cuba mines, and the,mines in England. These ores wero not roar lied till they were down to a much greater depth lhan we are at present, us nil the mineral veins are subjected to decomposition as they approach the atmospheric sir; except when the geological formation ol the earth will admit you to penetrate into these veins, without any variations taking place. When you descend to a standing level of the water, which the earth contains, and finds its way through the subterraneous passages to the small itruams, we do not expect to find tnat regularity and uniformity in the veins that we find when we penetrate th< m to a great depths. Practical information alone has taught us this lesson. The theorist may conjecture and imagine what he pleases, like a boy when ho saw the bird in the cage no mougm he had it, but did nol rrrollect that 'bore were no wires to kfep it in. Thus it appears that many htindrrda and thou lands o( dollars have boon spoilt in this our highly favored land, by theorists, who have seen an external appearance of a mineral vein; and, like the boy, thought he had got a prixe, and his fortune made. Not taking into consideration the variations that take place in the Mineral veins from their irregularity and geological foimation ofthe earth, which they never took into consideration until they got their mills and ponderous machinery elected; and by the time they were ready to go into operation they hnd either lost their vein, or otherwise tnry never had any regular vein at all, hut n mere surface indication. But I wish to carry you clear of thia rock that has been the diatruction of so many, and of course from these remarks you may plainly see that our miners, who undertake to superintend mines for compa. nies, ought ts have a practical knowledge of chemistry, geology and mineralogy, to suit this country. However, in this mine you have nothing to fesr, the veins run par. allel with the mountains, and the underlye or angle being to the south east, and the vein in the north west aide ofthe mountain; it runs directly into the mountain, so that no variation can take place till yon come to the south east side of the mountain, where a change takes place in the formation ol the earth. As the regularity of the sur. face ofthe earth is, such is the regularity of all mineral veins, where'ravinea run at right angle across the vein, they do not cause the variations to take place in the vein, after they leavetho viiifaee, but when they run on a parallel line with the vein, then the variations are felt to great depths at the geological formations ol the veins, no matter how deep or how shallow you be. This we have proven In Knglaud down 1o great depths, as well ss in the Gorman mines. Although at so mo of these places ttio vein is very rich, and in other places she i* completely dead. The course of the vein on thli plantation is one mile in length, without any variation whstev#r,^ end It appears there are three distinct branches of this vein running on a parallel with eorh other, and he ravin.> cross them at right angles, so that they do t . y variation in the depth nt the veins; were it to mil on a parallel with the v. in then it would cause seme' vnnatlou nortirnlnrlv if tfcty wor? on tho ?OHthoiwt rtM* of tno cCwn oUbe champion load, the vein would then be at. '^Mherovi'mi runs on a parallel linn with tho vein, and the vein angling towards it s. soon ns ever you come In contact with it, the vein will then be irregular, and in a decompoied state; tha ctfaot pro duced will be limit he vein will either be thrown up Mown. This vein tuns parallel with the bluo ridge, and ,'ln'.">e woat aide ot the mountain, dipping eaat -.0 south, it of course goes right iuto the mountain where no variations can take place for generations to come ? Now in working this mine you must be very careful in the separation of your ores, and have it in three different Mies, so as to keep each quality by itself, No. 1, No 3, No. 3. By this means you will be able to assay the ore from each pile, and to know what it will produce, before it goes to the smelting furnace, and if No. 1 will not pay. try No. J ; and if that will not pay, try No. 3. Bv this means you will find out what your furnace will produce, when running on either quality of the ore. This you ought to be particular about, as instances of this kind have taken place:?that mines have been given up as unprofitable, when others have taken and made a fortune out of them by their better management; because you are at as much expense for reducing the poor ore as you arti tn P0i)tift.iitha rlrh nn/l norYiam mnro and * i ? . ? ? [ , aa ln(. uru is inexhaustible, you hare no need of reducing any poor at all, but let it lie for some future day. In this way, the mine will be rendered productive from the beginning As at present this mine is but in its infancy, every precaution should be taken ; and if the ores will give at the present depth from five to slaty percent, what will they do when the shaft is sunk to a much greater depth, say thirty or forty fathoms 1 With the facilities of this mine 9 per cent will givo a handsome profit. I believe all the ores melted in England do not give more than from 8 to 10 per cent upon an average. Now if these ores would yield no more than 10 per cent, this property must be invaluable. But I have no doubt in my own mind, from the experiment I have made alreudy, that it will produce 20 upou, au average if properly managed, and the expense of reducing it will lie very light compared with that of Cuba ; and as the ore enriches as we go down, there is every reason to believe that they will he equally rich with the Cuba ore at the same depth. From the above temarks it will be plainly seen, that in the" further extension of the opeiation of the above mine, tin rj will he ores sufficient to pay more than double the expenie in sinking of the shaft down the depth of 160 feet, to the level of the water, without taking fromtho two galleries which are now ready to go into operation, I shall now proceed to give you an estimate ot all the necessary expenses to carry into effect the new projected plans on a more extensive scale.

Supposing that twenty men employed in the mine should only work out 10 a IS tons per diem and that ore yielding 20 per cent, and taking the average price of copper at $320 perj tan, it will give $800 00 And taking the return! for the month will give.. 34,000 00 But supposing that it only yielded one quarter of this, say per cent, will give 0,000 00 Now taking tne expenses at $1600, but in order to evade mistake or unforeseen accidents, we double that amount,say $3,000 00 It will leave a nett balance in favor of the miae per month 3,000 00 Now if the furnace, about to be erected, is constructed on a proper plan, It will reduce this quantity of ore in the 34 hours, and a much larger quantity can be obtained from the mine, prepared ana calcined lor smelting. The ores will be brought out of the mine and laid down by the means of small waggons running on a railway. Fuel also is in great abundance, and lime is easy to be obtained in tact the facilities of this mine are very great compared with any other mines now in operation, and she can b< worked for many years without the necessity of pumping water,which is generally a great draw back on all mining operations. Now in conclusion.I have only to regret that I am bul a pioneer and infant, comparatively speaking, in thi knowledge of the great mineral resources of this country although I have spent thirteen years in endeavoring to de velone them siace I left England, as they differ, ma terially from those of England, in the general formation in the strata, and minerals. The knowledge of which will be only obtafeed by th itineraat practitioner, in the pursuit of which som valuable lifetimes will be spent before they are full; known; for in taking into consideration the great miners resources of this country, I am lost in contemplatio: and wonder. It is generally considered by practical mei that a report of this kind should be plain and aimple, am I have attempted nothing beyond. With this you will receive a plan of the mine, uhowini the present state thereof, as well as a ground plan, show ing the entrance of the intended level and the furnace.
