No man in Congress has more boldly aud faithfully sustained the commercial interests 'h;in Mr. Proftit.

Noah's Wemlt Mkssengsk.?We gave this young bantling a longer lease ot existence than it hag been able to live through. After two solitary publication* it has become embowelled in the Sunday Tinim, *hoso fate is sealed from this moment, as was that of its predecessor, the l>aily Timet, from its incorporation with the Star. This is Noah's last kick, and we feel inordinately disposed to compassionate him?dissevered as he is Irom, and despised by, all political pariies, and perfectly powerless with the press, by whirh alone he could sustain a short lived notoriety which he so much covets. Poor imbecile, thou hast had thy day. Elopemintv?These affairs are increasing in number, and many more are on the tapis We have various communications on this subject, which we must publish ere long. One occurred in this city on Thursday night, ot a peculiar nature ; one is anticipated on the Blooinincdale road, and in Cleveland, Ohio, a terrific excitement has been occa sioned by such an event in the moat fashionable circles. The parties, however, in this case, were not without encumbrances, both having pledged their faith to others at the altar, and the hero i? understood to have nine pledges of the affection of his wife looking to him for guidance and support.

Yesterday rii inv?*rtignti<>r wm made by Mr Justice Matse 11 into the i<articnlar circumstances attending: the stabbiug case, which occurred in Broadwuy a few evenings aince, in the courae ol which the girl, Lnima Kichardsoa, while admitting that she used the knile, and with the effect already described, protected that it was done in BeU-deteuce. The esse is indeed one which calls t?r particular notice of the constituted authorities. Einma Kichardson describes herself a* 23 years 01 age, and as residing at No. 112 Centre street, but employed us a cap maker in Water street. Ou the night of this occurrence, she was returning to her home under the protection of the man Wallace, who is a printer, and a native of Virginia; and as ihey passed along Broadway, they were aaaailed b) De Wit Clinton Bsker. nnH flnmik nthor t^iranna ivhn art described lo us as all loafers, by whom Wallace watt knocked down. They then turned towards her, and to protect herself from tht late ol Wallace, she struck Haker with a knife which she uses in her business to cut paste hoard, but without any intention to deprive him of life. Now the questions presents themselves whether assassination is to stalk abroad 1 through our public thoroughfares, and next whether lawless vagabonds are to be permitted to commit such acts as require, for the purposes of self-deience, the use ol deadly weapons 1 Insult and outrage are of common occurrence even in Broadway, and our citizens have no protection but in their own right arms. Our |?olice system is a mockery?our watch establishment worthless for all the purposes ol protection?females canuottraveree our highways even in ihe care of their natural protectors, without submitting to unmanly insult, or being compelled to liBten to language which shocks the ear of modesty. What, then, is to be the result 1 Shall we return to such a state of society as that in which each ?ne avenges his own wrongs, and extorts a becoming and respectful treatment for his own person ? In such a case the weak must call on the aid of brethren and friends, and endless and bloody will be the feuds that will ensue. But to this s'ate of things we are rapidly approaching, unless some device, morewise than any yet resorted to, can SHve us from mich an alternative. Tne city authorises have much to answer for, and we trust their constituents will hold them to a rigidaccountabilitv Wallace and the girl are detained in custody until the fate of Baker 19 known, as his situation 13 said to be vetv critical. Thk Constitutionality of tub Bankrupt Law. ? In tlieU S. District Court of the State of Missouri, the Bankrupt law of the last Congress lias been decided to be unconstitutional, as we have stated 111 another part of the Herald. That opinion has also beeu expressed by other judicial functionaries, and now we learn that the Judges of the Supreme Court ot this State have come to the same conclusion. A writer in a* Albany paper says:? During the special term of the Supreme Court now sitting, Judge Bronson presiding, a question arising under the recent Bankrupt Law nt the U. S. came up for consideration, and during the argument, the learnedjudge was understood to say ttiat the question as to the constitutionality of that law had been raised 111 that court and was then under advisement. His own opinion was, that the voluntary part of the law was clearly unconstitutional and void, but how the question would ultimately be decided by the whole court, he would not undertake ro say. It is said, however, among the members *>f the bar, that another ot the judges entertains the same opinion. If this be so, we may soon expect a decision of that conrt against the validity of the law, or at least of that part of it which allows discharges upon the application of the insolvent himself. The subject is doubtless of interest enough to justify some early notice of this intimation. If the Judges thus decide, the late Bankrupt law will turn out to have been a great calamity to the country. Splendid Launch of the " Queen of the Wkst." ?Yesterday evening, according to previous notice, the launch of this magnificent specimen of American naval architecture was witnessed by thousands, from the yard of Messrs. Brown & Bell, loot of Stanton street. The novelty alone, of a vessel of 1250 tons, the largest merchant ship ever built in this country, attracted multitudes, of all classes, to the spectacle; but the conception of the grandeur of such a monster, fully rigged and sparred, and her yards crossed, plunging into her baptismal font, was more than was to be expected?and with a majestic dignity she embraced the element destined to be the fountain of her future glory. Messrs. Woodhull & Minturn, whe had already acquired imperishable fame in the construction of the Liverpool, seemed to think that something still was wanting to complete their deterininatioa to eclipse even their former enterprize, and add further distinction to their reputation In this, no doubt, they have aimed at euccesa, from all the external appearances and internal embellishments and comforts of the "Queen," who, when tranquilly seated upon her ocean throne, seemed to rejoice in her aristocratic cognomen, and scornfully look down upon the vulgar fleet that, notwithstanding, with many a loud and hearty cheer, and fir-resounding gun, acknowledged her supremacy. May she have all the success she is fully entitled to. We shall, in a few days, give a full description of her dimensions and improvements. The Attkmitkd Assassination of the Postmaster Generai..? By an extra sly from the office of the Baltimore American, dated Friday evening, we have the following additional information respecting the youth Gardner TheCity Court met this morning at ten o'clock, pursuunt to adjournment, and resumed the examination of J. McLean Gardner, the young man who made an assault upon the Postmaster General ot the United States on Tuesday last. Dr. Gardner, brother of the prisoner, the first witness called to the stand, stated that the prisoner had been remarkable from an esrly period 111 his life for his close application to books of the most recondite character. The . result of this was a great prostration of mind and body, the witness, observing his strange conduct, | whs led to ihe belief, some two month* Since, that his Orotber was insane. He expressed that opinion to hi* family, and rennrked too, at the time, that he fetued hi# brother w< uld commit soine ra h act Hw disease seemed to grow worst. Dr G further stated that the prisoner had written several strange commentaries on the writings ot Shaks^eare in 'he early part of last month, which lie forwarded to his father, then absent to N>>rth Carolina. The father wrote to h s family or the subject, enjoining th? m to keep a ?tr ct watch upon the movements of the pris ner. He also aOdrersed hiin a letter advising him to "change his reading descend from his stilts, and write hiin letters having relation to the aflairn of the world ." David Hoffman, Esq testified as to the prisoner's insanity. He went to the prison in company with Col. Graham oa Thuisdny morning, and had an interview with the prisoner in his cell, which satisfied him that he was laboring under aberration of mind (rardner, it would a|ipear from Mr. Holiman's testimony, suddenly became possessed with a notion that Mr. Wicktifle and one ot the officers of the Htramtiont, wiio were engaged in conversation close by him, harl conspired to throw him overboard ; and actuated by lear and a desire o wave himself irom ihe dreaolul late which he suppor-ed awaited him, he committed the assault. He could give no reason why he ihou?(ht a conspiracy h-id been entered into against him. He inferred that such was the tact. Mr H. wan o( the opinion ihat the young man's mind had been thtuwri into disarray by injudicious study, and he had no doubt that he was insane. After some remarks from J B. Williams, Ekj. counsel for the prisoner, the caee was Riven to the Jury, who retired to their room, and after a j-hoit absence found, "That iheaaid John McLean Gardner was lunatic, or insane, on the first day of August, at the time of committing the oflence charged apamst him, and is still bo at the lime ol taking ihn inquisition." The Court then rendered the following judgment snd order:? "The Court huretiy releaie the prisoner from the commitment ?! the justice of the pence nd enter that he be |>u<-<><) in the 8 au'i Hoapital, there to tie conflue.I until ....... ,rvuTr.r nn rt-Hfon, oi wirch the f.:ity Court hull be aatinhed, and by them discharged is dun courtn of law."

Mkrkdith? By the Countess of Bleaaington.?J. j Winchester, New World oHice.?This is as agree-! able a companion as one could wish f or a summer's Hnv Tt in filler) with niaunnt sncncs nl fashionable I life in England, and on the Continent?scenes, with which Lady Blesaington is perfectly familiar, and | perfectly competent to paint in all their various hues ol light and shade. The want of principle, and i the libertinism of the English nobility are thorough- , ly exposed, and the slaves of fashion, of both sexes, . are held up to well merited contempt. For absorbing interest of plot, and for spirited, clever, and : original sketches of character, this romance has rarely been equalled. It greatly surpasses the pre- , ious popular works of its gifted author. New York Legal Observer.?Owen, Ann street, N. Y.?This work, which has taken a reputable 1 stand amongst the law publications of the day, is new iseufd semi monthly The numberforthe 1st instant is mainly devoted to an opinion of Judge Wells, of the U s. District Court of Missouri, on the constitutionality of the Bankrupt law, which affirms that the act ot Congress, bo lar as it undertakes to discharge a debtor from debts contracted before the passage of the act, without payment, and to discharge his future acquisitions of property iroin liability to those debts, without the consent of a given majority ot hiscreditors, is unconstitutional. Tliis is .in important decision, though it is but the echo ol the opinion so often expressed by the distinguished Senator from the same State?the Hon. Thomas H Benton?during the debates which preceded the pat-sage of the law. The learned judge enters fully into the historical circumstances attendant on the adoption of the proiKJsition of Mr- Charles Pinckney, in regard to bank ruptcy, by jramersof our Constitution, amllroin ; the works which they relied on proves the import) ot the terms used, and then concludes, alter quoting various authorities, that a bankrupt system which Congress has the power to pass, was a sys'em tor the benefit of creditors, to enable them to collect their just debts and to prevent the frunds of debtors who might remove their property and themselves in-; to different States, He next proceeds to show that j the bankrupt law ot the last Congress was solely and entirely for the benefit of debtors, and to eotble | them to avoid their debts, wild therefore opposed to 1 the whole intent, spirit and object of a constitution- j al bankrupt law. This he illustrates in a variety of! ways The question whether Congress has authority to pass a bankrupt law impairing the obligation ot contracts, is ably and fully difccusted, and after a long train ot powerful reasoning, the decision is arrived at which we have already stated. This deci- i sion will tend to unsettle the ownership to large amounts of property, and it may lead to a great amount of litigation, and therefore it will command 1 much attention from the bar generally. Endicott'sI Picture of Saratoga for 1843? i Endicott, New York?This work contains thirteen views, from original drawings, of the principal buildings and places of the villuge of Saratoga, with brief descriptive matter. It is dedicated to the vis itors of the Springs. The views are lithographed by the publisher, who has a well earned reputation in his art. But we cannot commend some of his figures. The United States Hotel stands first, as it justly should; but an equestrian, who is departing from that splendid establishment, we would fain hope is the possessor of the Kosi nante on winch he is astride, lor we cannot believe the Marvin's capable of keeping such cattle. Union Hall, the Pavilion House, Washington Grove, Putnam's Bath, and other buildings; the Lake, the Springs and Fountains, and other objects of curiosity are here depictured, but the artist has placed an equestrian lady on the wrong side of her horse in front ol Putuam's Bath; a shadow of "a gentleman in black" in a striking theatrical attitude in the high road; a husband and father affectionately strolling out at eventide in a very loaferish manner, and some|other perfect nondescripts. Our particular friend Col. Webb, crutches included, is represented near the Lake House with no evident improvement in "thut half," which is a reflection on the virtues of the waters. But there is another equally strong in the view ol Saratoga Lake, in which a water drinker is represented on the bow of a barge about incontinently to spring oveiboard. If such desperation is produced by imbibing the Iodine waters, or those that bubble from the High Kock | Spring, tec shall centent ourselves with pure Croton. Such a collection of slovenly loafers we never saw grouped in any picture, as we find in these views of Saratoga ; they mar the better portions of the work, and should be corrected in future editions. The Self-Taught Penman?Saxton ?fc Miles, New York?This is a treatise on the art of writing, with pictorial illustrations and copperplate engravings, designed for the use of schools and families.

We truat that the association recently established will act upon it immediately:? Mr. Editor :? Dear Sir :? 1 have, from tune to time, noticed with a food deal ?f patislaction, your able observations, concerning the immigration of foreigners and others to the wettarn country. And when we take into virw the im|>ortance ol the subject, and the large riasaes that are weekly immigrating westward, we see that it is nect6s?ry that t-oneihiug should be done to lacilitatr the journey of the immigrant thither. To do this it would be essential to slate the expense of going, thr length ot time it would take, and the cost from placr to place, which particulars, il published and allowed to remain in a prominent situation tor a short time, would, without doubt, do an incalculable amount oi good. And it this is done, the thanks of a large number ot poor people, who are in a foreign land, unablv to gather any information whatever, and perfect strangers to us, would amply repay you for any trouble vou mifflv take in obtaining the aforesaid particulars I remain very resi ectfully yours, A Nokwequn Mrhchaet. New York, Aug. 2,1843. Princeton Fugitive Slave Case.?A colored man?James Johnson?who was arrested in Princeton a few days since in behall of Mr. Thomas, ot Mississippi, as a fugitive slave Irom Maryland, and who has lived worthily about Princeton lor the last five years, who was brought bHore Justice Lowry on Moaday afternoon, and demanded a trial by jury, under the humane act of our Legislature, his counsel being Wm.C. Alexanderand Edward Armstrong, Esqs. Mr. Thomat was represented by J. T. Wallace, Esq , ol the Baltimore bar, and J. F. Haverman, Esq. The counsel for the claimant objected that ihe State law is unconstitutional, being in conflict with the act of Congress, which provides that fugitives be taken for examination before a magistrate, who alone is decide upon the testimony, and that no State lias concurrent jurisdiction in the case. They cited the PeKgs ?.ase, recently decided by the U. S. Supreme Court, which it was held proved the unconstitutionality oi the Jersey act. Justice J^owry, however, did not feel authorized to net Hur'r an uct of the Legislature, aud decided id favor ol h jury trial.

Mrusark I Jail u Ad% Un.it KoMwry at the Trrmont House, | Boston. The Bsston bulletin o| the 3d instant says: l ?we have just learned that ytsterday in the * lorenooi) a daring robbery was committed at the t Tremont House, in this cttv. Mr. J A. Merrittol ? New Orleans, urrived yesterday morning, and took ? rooms at the Tremont Houae 'He had in his trunk* f a large amount of property, which was stolen dur- > ing 'lie forenoon, and, ub it now appears, by one of < the lodner*,whohad entered his name on the hooks 1 as "G. Thompson, of Washington." The robbery e was not discovered until I&st evening, when Mr < Merrill went to his room and found that his trunk ' had been broken open and the money abstracted ? He immediately gave notice at the barot the robbe- * ry, and suspicion fell upon Thompson at once, and ' he whs politely asked by "the Deacon" to step into s a parlor, and wait the arrival of an officer. He was 1 afterwards searched, and under the cushion of the 1 sofa where he had been sitting, were lound two ' Treasury notes of $600 each, and some jewelry 1 which had been taken from the trunk. We under- ' stand that Thompson had negotiated during the day ' two other notes ot $500 each at theMerchauls'bank and had fiient a portion ot the proceeds ior a gold * watch ana other valuable articles, which were found upon him. together with $873 which he had receiv- ' ed from the Bank. Thomson had also stolen a set ot bills ot exchange for $1000, which he bad left, with other valuables, in the back building ot ' the Tremoat i He was committed to prison, and this morning i

was taken to the Police Court, examined, and put under bonds for $5000 for his appearance at the Municipal Court. The Boston Mercantile Journal of Friday, gives 1 he following version of the story This morning George 'Thompson, alias F. W. Gillett, was brought up on the complaint ot John A. Merritt, charged with breaking open and robbing his trunk at the Tremont House on the 3d instaut, of the following property Four Treaiury note*, of $606 each, with interest, $2350 Three billi ol exchauge, lor 1UW) One gold ring 8 One gold diamond pin 36 Three gold *tudi 10 Two gold breast pins, 4 $3413 Two of the Treasury notes, Nos. 368 and 369, let ters l'> and C, were paid at the Merchants' Hank, and cancelled. The amount paid, as testified to by the clerk, was #1082 16. The prisoner was taken into custody at the Tremont House la-t evening, about 11 P. M. by some oi the officers ol the house, when constable Clapp was sent for. Un searching him eight $100 note* of the Merchants' Bank were found on his person, and one $50 note. Beneath the cushion of the sofa upon which he sat were found two of the Treasury notes not negotiated, aDd the jewelry. It is sup i(Oi?ed that he secreted them there alter he was taken into custody. The bills of exchange were found loosely wr.ipped in paper in the privy. He purchased a watch of Dows, Ball & Co. which was found upon his person. The evidence was sufficiently strong to warrant his being bound over in the sum ol $5000, to take his trial at the next term ol the Municipal Court. All the property, except $200 or $300 has beta recovered. We have received an extra from the office of the Boston Times, from which we copy the following additional particulars, elicited during the examination :? It seemed that Thompson was lodging at the Tremont, as a gentleman ot leisure, having recently taken up his abode there from the ^outh. Mr. Merritt, (who is represented by the Times as a merchant from Wew York.) testified that he arrived in town yesterday, took lodging* at the Tremont in a room which had several beds in it, the house being lull at the lime; went out ot town on business with a friend, returned in the evening, and found that his trunk had been broken open, by the clerk handing him a bundle of refuse papers, dec , which had been found, and on which Mr. Merrill's name was found. The thief did not take all the | property from the trunk, but left some sealed packages of value. Mr John A. May, clerk at the Merchants' Bank, testified to the faci of the two Treasury notes, 368 ' and 369, being negotiated at the bank by a person, a stranger. He paid $1000 and interest, taking and 1 cancelling the notes, which also bore the receipt of the person offering them in the name of "F. W. Gillett " Mr. John L. Tucker, proprietor of the Tremont, testified to calling on Mr. Clapp and searching Thompson- Officer Clapp found on the prisoner or nearhun eight $100 bills, one $50, and one $20 and the watch. His attention liad been called to the case early in the day by a person remarking the suspicious circumstance of a stranger bargaining for a watch at Jones Sc Dow's, throwing down on th" counter a Treasury note for $500 No. 369, which was not takeu. A watch and chain were afterward bought there.? Clapp then followed him to Willis' exchange ehop, to the Merchants' Bank, to Gilbert's, in Exchange street, and then again at the "Merchants," where the gentleman was receiving the money of the paying teller; afterward he tracked him to the N.

The person was lully identified, and bound over to the next Municipal Court in the sum of $5000. In default of bail he was committed. Soon after this the District Attorney, Franklin Dexter, Ktq., at the suggestion of the Merchants' Bank, appeared in Court and desired that the Trea sury n*tes might be given up to the bank, the agent of the United States, as they were the property ol the Government, and should be immediately returned to Washington. The Couit was inclined to retain possession of ihe same, and did so, as being a necessary link in the chain of evidence, and as having been, when tolen, the property of Mr. Merritt.

This is the first cruise of the Boston since she was rebuilt She is henvily sparred and armed, carrying during this cruise 20 for'y-two's, curronades, and two Ion? twenty-four's, being two carronades short of her complement. We understand that she has proved to have the qualities of an excellent sea boat and fair sailer, and that the has returned in excellent condition, and can be refitted and sent to sea ityuiu immediately. She sailed fronijNew York Vov. 26th, 1840, and performed her fir9t passage to Rio in 35 da>s?the shortest yet made by any of our men of war. Her ufxt ruu, from Rio to < ape Town, in 25 days, Wdb equally creditable. Subsequently she doubled the Cape ol Good Hope in company with the Constellation, and proceeded by the way of Mozimbique Channel to Sumatra, and theoc* through Malacca Straits to Singapore, and afterwards beat up the China Seas, thus attording opportunity of comparing her nailing with the Constellation under all circumstances. She had the advantage of the latter shm in point of sailing save one, on a wind, close hauled, the Frigate being much the most weathetly ol the two. While at Joannn, one of the Comoro lalea, :lhe Boston was despatched to the aid ol a vessel stranded on the neighboring inland ol Mayotta, under the direction of a native pilot, who neither spoke nor understood English. She bent through a most narrow and intricate channel m the rtef, 28mi.es in length, such as would rarely be attempted by a ve*. sel ol her size, working all the time in the most satia. factory and admirable manner. She anchored abreast the town, to the complete surprise ot th< officers of the French vtssels, who had been surV''ylug with a view of taking possession of the iflund, and believed the town inaccessible (rem th.u quarter. Shortly after the arrival o( the squadron at Macao > the Boston was sent to Manilla. She joined the | Commodore at Whampoa on her return, and kept company while the settlement of our claitna againai | the Chinese was pending. She then proceeded to , Macoa, and wan soon alter joined by the Conatellauon, the tw? ships keeping company, partly at Macao, and partly at Hong Kong, until the termination of the Chinese and hnglish war enabled the Commodore to despatch the Boston to perform that portion ?>f duty assigned the squadron in the Pacific Oceiin The N. E. exit from the China >eas not b*ing practicable, on account of the early setting in 01 the monsoon with atrong galea, the Boston run down the China seas, through the straits of ^uiidti around New Holland, and alter touching at Sidney a lew daya, resumed her way to the Society Islands. H etnaimng onlv five days at Tahiti, she next sailed for OhIiu. and arrived (here al a critical period for American interests It 10 n fortunate circumatance that we were re presented by a naval force at the Sandwich Islands, during the difficulties between them and the English. The opportunity of finding an asylum on board oi^e of our shji* of war in the event of hoatiJlflo#, wh certain]y a great relief to the Awenoau esidents, as well as gratifying to those offering the >rotection ; indeed, for some time the state of hinge was bo unsettled, that it was apprehended hat tome intervention might become neceasary for j he effectual protection of the liv-8 and property of >ur citizens, who are nearly 500 in number, not ncludiog the crews of whale shi| s, and whose ineresta cover iome millions ol dollars. As soon ax ( was expedient to leave Oahu, the Boston proceeded to the southward, and being unable to fetch ha Maiquesas, touched again at Tahiti. The un- c lettled state of this island, as well as frequent ditfi- d ultieswith the crews of whalers, made her vidits ^ liglily desirable. The engagements of moat of her crew being now 11 >n the eve of expiring, precluded a lurther stay in s fie Pacific, and leaving the west coai-t unvieited, c he took her depaiture from Tahiti, tor Cape Horn, . in her homeward bound paseuge. Notwithstanding tdverse gales, she arrived in Rio in 69daya. She * emained in that port 10 days, and thence sailed for t he TJnited States Out of the last eleven months, s ihe has been nine at sea. The whole amount of : ler sailing is upwards of fifty thousand miles. We learn by the above arrival, that the U. S. friColumbia was at Rio, June 28?all well. H. B. M. ship Vindictive, and the French irigate Hotmoule, were at Tahiti, April 11. Latkr from Bermuda.?By the arrival ot the fast sailing schooner Currency, Captain Moore, we have received full files of the Royal Gazette to the 30th nit. inclusive. The Gazette of the 26ih says:? We will not have any more of the Royal Mail Steamers here for another month, the Severn and Trent being the first under the new route. The former vessel, as we have before staled proceeded hence toNassau, and Iroin thence to Havana, Kingston, in Jamaica, Jacmel? in Mayti, Si. Juan, in Porto Kico, and back to frt. Thomas, where she is to arrive in 29J days from the period of her starting thence. Should the steamer from St. Thomas, on arriving at Bermuda, not meet the steamer from Havana, she , will coal complete, and alter waiting seven days proceed toFalmouth; but should the Mexican steam- | er arrive at Bermuda, after detaining this number seven steamer so long as to prevent her reaching Jamaica in time, by the way ot Havana, the will, alter delivering the home mails to the Mexican steamer, proceed direct to Jamaica, so as to keep her aj>pointed time. It ja calculated that 100,000 miles of steaming, and ?180 000 expense will be annually saved to the company by the new arrangement. '1 he lessened amount ol work will be very important to the company, says our London correspondent, in a letter received via St. Thomas, by the Severn, " as ii will relieve them Irom ih?> u?>i'i>usiiv nf Tenl?r.inir the Medina.

The price of p .seage Irom Bermuda to Southampton or Falmouth 1 is j?40 alter, and JC35 forward cabin. From Bermuda to Nttt-sau $40, to Jamaica $120, exclusive of wine, porter, tec. A steamer will leave St. Thomas, for Fayal and Falmouth every thirty days. Should the weather prevent communication with Fayal when the steamer reaches that Island, 6h?? must extend her stoppage there till she can obtain coal sufficient to ensure reaching Falmouth under steam; but if there be sufficient coal on board she may omit altogether calling at Fayal. The French steam frigate Gomer arrived at Dominica on the 6th inst. On coming to anchor, says the " Colonist," she hoisted an English ensign at the fore-top-msiBt head, and fired a salute of 21 guns, which was immediately returned by the Battery at Mnrne Bruce. The Gomer then fired 15 guns as a I salute to His Honor the President, which was likewise immediately returned The G is employed in carrying a Government Commissioner through the British Islands in search of information relative to ihe working ?f the Reyal Mail Steam Packets. His Excellency the Governor recommends estab- , lulling annual t-es^ions of the legislature, instead of the present mode of meeting quarterly. In Grenada, a question of privilege, arising out of ihe arrest tor debt of two of the members of the House of Assembly, and a refusal on the part of the ? ...I ... k......til , I... ni.A^linn settled, has led to a dissolution of the Assembly. We give some particulars. The election of new epresentatives was going on at the latest dates, and [here was every probability that a majority oi those members who carried the privilege question, will be returned, and it is believed that a second dissolution will be the consequence. The immigrant ship Fairy Queen, arrived at Trinidad, on the 28ih ultimo, from St. Helena, with 196 captured Atricans on board. That frightful die- 1 euse, the small pox, broke out among,the passengers on their way out, and oi sixteen cases, eight had terminated fatally. The authorities of Trinidad were exerting themselves to prevent the disease from extending to the shore. The following letter from Capt. Allan, of the mail steamer "Teviot," corrects the lalse reports that have been m circulation injurious to their credit:? Bermuda, 91st July, 1343. Sir?Having observed in your Journal ol tho 18th a paragraph staling that the company's steamer Trent had arrired at Falmouth on the 17th ult , out or coal and water, and that it was reported that not one of these steamers hud had oa it? arrival at Falmouth one day's coal to <pare, I should feel much obliged by your inserting in your Journal of next week a correction of tho las* man tioned report; and please also state the fact that this sh:p had on hosrd 240 tons of coal on her last arrival at Falmouth on the 2nd o( April last, at 0 A.

At Montevideo, although the gale was felt with great severity, and the harbor is tull ot vessels, I am happy to state that only one vessel stranded, atter having parted both chain cables?the barque Hobert, of Cohasset, with 1800 bhls. tl >ur on board, just ar rived trom Rio. This vessel is high and dry on a sand beach, and will probably be got off. Cargo i landing in good order, the latter insured at Kio. , The U.

The i U S. schooner Enterprise arrived yesterday from | Kio Janeiro in a leaky condinon, and reported the gaie as exceedingly heavy off (he coast. She was obliged to throw some ol her guns overboard. I much fear that great damage tias been tustained on 'he coast not yei known. It would be well to state, for the information of ?hip masters bound direct to Buenos Ayres, that the , pilot boat which formerly cruised in the vicinity ot , tfaladonado tor inward bound ships, has been with , drawn ; consequently, such as may require a pilot, must touch at thispoit to obtain one.

There is little demand for consumption, and consequently the ?f?ck in first hands has been increased to about 8000 barrels, and we do not think that over $10 to nel$7 60could now be obtained.

No one can be di*saistied with all this. Yet one cannot help smiling tw lee how quickly the Bostonians perceive the tmporance of their position, and with how much gratifi ation they comoare London, Paris, Liverpool and Mew York, with their own little village.

She has been absent over three years, in the Chinese waterp, and the term of service of iiost of hf r seamen had expired. They, therefore, elt little like working, and when the ship arrived ott Fort Independence they refused to do duty, rhis looked rather Equally at first, but Capt. Lour Droved to he a man of ?uergy and decision. He irmed every oHieer, and hod tnem stationed on the quarter deck. He then ordered alt hands beforo him, and asked them the cause of the difficulty. Several replied that they were sick. "Are your names on the sick list"?" asked the Captain. "No," was the answer. "Then, below instantly, and report yourselves tm the Surgeon," said the Commander. Several went below, but most remaining on deck, he again demanded why they refused to obey orders. They then said that ?heir time of service (ttiree years) had run out, and they could not work any longer. Captain L. replied in a few words, and ordered every one to his poet, under penalty of being fir^duponif they did not obey him at ouce. They thereupon went forward, the ship came up to the city, and the trouble blew over like a small thundercloud on a summer afternoon Tne greatest feature among strangers and the commercial elates in thin city, is the Merchants' Exchange, tand the MerchanU' Exchange News Room. The News Room, which is in the large rotunda of the Exchange, is kept by Nathaniel Greene, Esq , formerly postmaster of Boston The room is probably the best in the wot Id, and is the grand depot for news and commercial information in this section. We do not believe that a news establishment was ever started with arrangements so perfect, and facilities so great, as this one. All the merchants here are highly pleased with it, and certainly they ought to be so. Nothing else. Yours, ico. H. New Lebanon Springs. [Corrupondeuce of the Herald. J Columbian Hall, i Vtw f.KRANnn Sminos Anir. 2 1711. ( Dtlight/vU Scenery at New fabanon?Fine HotelMusic?Shakers, 4?r. Dear Bennett;? I cannot retrain from expressing to you, and through your columns to the travelling 'elite, my great delight at finding, in the course of my ramblings, so delightful a spot as this veritable Lebanon Springs. The attractions of this place having been hinted to me as I was leaving Boston, last week, I resolved to break the tedium of a long ride to Albany by calling and refreshing myself with a glass of spring water and a night's repose. We accordingly left the cats at Pittsfield, seven miles from the Springs, where we found a coach waiting to receive us. Our ride from Pittsfield to the Springs was through a most delightful section of country, embracing the fairest landscapes and mountain scenery which the traveller is wont to gaze upon. We left Boston at 7 A. M., and arrived Here at 5 P. M ; on the whole a very pleasant jaunt. This is certaiuly one of the most enchanting places I ever visited. By looking from the piazza you behold every order of beauty, from the moat pimple to the sublime. A valley is seen stretching out to a distance of ten miles, on each side of which are sloping highlands, under a most luxuriant elate of cullivntiou. Herds are seen gmziug upon the hill tops, fields of grain waving in the breez**, and the winding streati.s, having caught the varied hues imported by surrounding objects, reflecting richness and beauty to the enraptured gaze of the traveller. The house at which 1 am slaying is kept in a most capital manner by Mr. Bentiey and tons. Tha building is ninety feet on the east wing, one hundred and thirty on the south, containing one hundred and thirty private rooms. JtJ is mainly protected from the street by a large circular yard, abounding in trees aud shrubbery, in the nnd-t nt U'hifh fhpri* in a miirhtv Kvrnrnnr#* tnwprinp majestically some sixty leet, whose branches hang in gmctlul curves over a spring of crystal water- 1 his spring is exceedingly beamitul. Myriads of bubble! are constantly issuing from the caves of the earth, which remain unbroken until they come in contact with the atmosphere. Fourteen barrels of w ater are said to come from this spring every miuute. Every thing connected with the house presents an appearance of order and neatness, which we do not often tneet with at our public hotels. Active and attentive servants are provided from New York, who manifest an unusual zeal in ?U|>plying to the guegtt the utmost of their wishes The table is loaded with the richest meats and the daintiest fruits that can be found in any clime; and the active response of every palate declares that the cook " was not bred in the attic." Mueic is always at hand to usher in the evening with the jolly dance. The ririea in this vicinity far surpass any watering place I ever vit-ited. At the distance of two miles and a half, there is the largest Society of Shakers in the Union. These eccentric people have for the last year closed their house of oublic worship, but they have in the mean time prepared a place on the mountain, where they worship when the weather is agreeable. They gave notice for public worship there last Sabbath, bums it rained, we were deprived the very n/tli trout nf witnHMfiinir their nt*piili?r it?>ifnrmainn#ti. They say they shall worship there next Sabbath, if the weather is pleasant. Hut I retrain trom saying more, as my paper is nearly consumed, and 1 (ear I have already trespassed loo far upon your valuable space. Let me conclude this hasty letter, by saying that instead of one night, I have been here nearly a week; and as I am in no haste to get home, I intend to see many more suns cast their last lingering rays upon these beautitul hills. And 1 doubt not, should many others weary of the bustle ot the city, or even ot the sands and mouoionous scenery of Saratoga, happen to lodge in this valley, they wilt be retained by the same spell which binds Your most humble servant, J.

His establishment, consisted ot one servant man,a lemale housekeeper, undone housemaid. (>n returning home he enquired lor the housekeeper, and was told she had gone to a neighbor's. It is supposed he then retired io his chamber, but on hearing a noise in the kitchen went down to ascertain the cause. On opening the door, he was shot through the heart by the servant man, McDeimot,] and his body dragged to the root house This was on Saturday night.? On Minday morning the man and woman took the wagon and horses to Toronto, where they oflered th'-m for sale for $00, but Idi led to find a purchaser. Fhey then embarked on the Transit for Lewiston.?
