"Hail Columbia, happy land." Our candidates for the Presidency are busily preparing for the contest. Col. Johnson is now stumping it throueh the eastern States, and the other candidates are industrious by deputy, and a great big bottle of excitement ia about to be uncorked. Our ingenious and industrious citizens are outstripping the world by novel, useful, and well executed inventions, which all the world can see for their satisfaction or mortification, by just stepping across the channel which separates this magnificent continent from the worn out kingdoms of the old world, to Niblo's Saloons in Broadway. Canadian Matters. The Legislative Council ol Canada, in reply to a message from the Governor General, have decided in favor of Montreal as the seat of the Colonial Government. They give their reasons at great lengthThis decision will doubtless go to the home Government by the Acadia, and to Montreal it may be expected the government will be removed previous to the next Parliamentary seesion. In the lower Hous* of the Provincial Parliament there appears to be an infl imed spirit on the part of the minority, which may be designated as the English party The prerent minority was the loynl party during the troubles, and now the "Itebela" have succeeded to power, and the Loyalists are kicked aside for their services in preserving the Co i *p n vr i.._ i 'I.*: iviiiy iu vrrcBLi miikun j*u pariiuuittr legislative nui has yet been ventured upon,but much speechifying and crimination,nnd iceriminatien have been indulged in. The subject of a general amnesty for all expatriated rebels has been discussed, and will probably be granted at an early period. A measure for the protection of agriculture is in contemplation. The Governor Gmeral has a large majority to support and carry all cabinet measures. The Clergy Reserves question will yet prove a troublesome one. A project is on foot, under the auspices of ihe Bishop of Toronto, andtheCfmf Justice, for the purpose of unsettling the Imperial Act for the management of the Clergy Reserves, and throwing the whole of those lands into " hotch-potch," to be distributed, in bulk, among the representatives of the diflerent sects now extant in the Province, in certain undefined proportions, the Church of England, of course, coming in for the lion's share of the spoil. A proposition has been made to put down Orange and all other secret societies. Canada, as well as Ireland, has been afflicted with the dangerous feuds which such societies engender, and their extirpa- I tion will be a happy one, if it can be effected. A | bill has been brought in by Mr. Lafontaine, the Attorney General for Canada West, to disqualify place holders for election to the Provincial Parliament. The revenue has suffered considerably of late, and British aid will doubtless be required to preserve the credit of the colony. A measure of reform is however in contemplation, which will secure a reduction of the outrageously extravagant salaries mw paid to the place holders. Tennessee Legislature.?This body has befoie it a seat of government question, as well as Canada. A movement has been made also towards the election of U. S. Senators, a proposition having been brought into the Senate to fix the 13th inst. for the election. {B>- The Maite papers state that Joshua Herrick, the Democratic candidate for Congress from the York and Oxford Districts, is elected. The Life and Times or the late Mr. Abbot, Comedian.?Before the death of the late Mr. Abbot, who was a member of the Park company at the commencement cf the last season, he had nearly prepared for publication, a work of great interest, embracing reminescences of his theatrical career, which was one of more than ordinary dura'ion. In private life, loo, he had been the companion of the poet, the sage, the learned, and the noble, and in this department much is expected that will amuse all classes of readers. His death put a period to his labors on this work, and of course he was unable to derive any benefit from the labor which he had devoted to it, but now we hear that it is soon to ap pear in a series of papers, under the editorship of Mr. Buckstone, the comedian, a writer of some repute, in the columns of a new magazine now being commenced in London. Complete Works or Hannah More ? Just published, and for sale at this office, No 5 of the full edition of Hannah More's works. It ie the commencement of the second volume, and contains the "Hints towards forming the character of a young Princess," entire, and also the introductory part of " Christian Morals." The whole will be comprised in eight numbers, at 25 cents each, making it the cheapest edition ever published. Croton Celebration ?Yesterday was the anniveisary of the Croton Celebration, in commemora | tion ol which the American Museum was brilliantly illuminated. Every pane in the numerous windows of that extensive building was replaced with stained glass, comprising nearly one thousand lights of the most beautiful colors. Chatham Theatre?Mr. B ee's benefit, last night, was triumphantly successful, and he will come again, we h?pe, with greater popularity than ever He goes south, however, and it will be some days and weeks before we shall again look upon his blackened sconce again. Mr. Burton commences a week's engagement to-rnorrow night, and plays, as will be sees by the bill, two of his best characters. We need not speak specially of Mr Burton's merits. On Wednesday Mrs. Jones, now one of the most talented actresses, takes her benefit Mr. Kirby and Mr Burton both appear, and we predict a full hon?e on the occasion. 1 aoi si.i on thr Frsntirr ?The Van Buren, Arkansas, Intelligencer, slates ihat on the night ol the 16th ult , Mr. Benjamin Vore, his wile, and a traveller, citizens of the United States, were murdered at the residence of Mr. Vore, u(*>n the mill tary road, in the Cherokt e nation, and the house burned to the ground.

A slight change in the weather y* sterday thiuued the attendance at the Fair, though many probably, are deferring their visit to the next week. Indeed, in many depnrtmt nts of the exhibition rooms there wtsi" .! i.i . x,< cthiicn that great care was required hi tl.t cii -iuK ? I ti.e week. The Dahlias, in particular, rtquire renewal, for many of them are withered and dead. During the next week no doubt, the attendance will be very great, and it is observable that articles for exhibition are still beingbrought in. Af about a quarter to eight o'clock last night, the President asceuded the platform, which has b?en erected at the foot ot the grand promenade, immediately under the stairs leading to the Horticultural room. The machinery waB stopped, and when silence was in some degree restored, he announced the intended plan of proceedings tor the following week. On Monday, the Ploughing Match at Patereou, N. J., at 12 o'clock, noon?the sttainboat leaving the Pier at nine o'clock, A. M. precisely? The managers, judges, and the members engaged 111 the proceedings, together with the reporters of the press, will assemble at a quarter before nine,with badges, to be provided for the occasion, and will be conveyed to the ground Iree of expense, by the proprietors ot the steamboat and railroad He also announced that Colonel Richard M. Johnson was expected to be on the ground?though wefeelrather inclined to doubt the certainty. Lists ol cattle to be exhibited at Vauxhall on Wednesday next, should be sent to the committee rooms at Niblo's during the forenoon of Monday. On Tuesday, the New England Hutchinson family, who gained such credit by the series of concerts which they gave in this city and elsewhere last winter, will appear at three o'clock, P. M., in the grand saloon, and sing several ol their sweet Ismily songs and native airs during the eveuing. The bunds i f the navy and army will also attend alternately. He then enquired if Mr. Wm. C Cutler was among the listeners, as he had been appointed to deliver the address for the even ing. ivir suiter not answering, he then introduced Mr. Msios, who niude a short but happily conceived address He apologised (or the suddenness ol the summons, and then da-hed at once ut his subject, remarking that lie had lived, jocularly sneaking, two hundred years in the land, and with those feelings which duration ot tenantcy engenders, he resembled the old rat in its attachment to the old house?(laughter.) He had been an American larmer, lor agriculture was the work congenial to his leelings The first man had to fun?Hie last man, lie had no doubt, would from choice be a tiller ?>t the laud. One thing was ceriaiti, that the process ot .tanning was becoming better understood ?no longer was it an instinct born with the soil. No, it required a fair start and a regular train ng to win trom the earth its rich products. "I've tried it myself, and many a day nave I labored at the plough with those pairof good old hands?(i laugh ) And 1 know one thing, that the rnauuruig, working, enriching, and gathering the fruit is a suolime art, only to be attained by close and attentive observation. He then glanced at the results of the labors of two farmers?the one following the old system and the other adopting the new systems and theories? and when the first could raise but forty bushels, the latter has shown by every day .experience that he could raise 80. lie pleasantly remarked that lie would never use a rusty hoe, spade or plough, while he conid procure a polished oue, for with the latter lie could outwhip two men with rusty impliments. In olden times tne broad-axe was a clumsy, rough, in>shapen instrument, but now the American manufacturer made his with an ivory handle, inlaid with silver and gold, and as keen as as a Wall street breker, and as clean a shaver?(a laugh.) It was worth a ship load of old broad axes. The rapid progress of improvement in various other branches he alluded to in passing terms. The trip to Philadelphia, which used to occupy the honest old Knickerbocker three days, wbb now perlormed in nearly as many hours, and 60 would be the increased spirit of improvement in years to come. The certainty of this corresponding increase, is as true, said he, as that my old head has only ached once in sixty years. (Laughter ) With some allusion to the application of electricity to telegraphing, he closed his brief remaks The old Fire King,Kdge, then gave a magnificent display of his pyrotechnic art, astonishiug numbers who had never seen any thing ol the kind, though report had olten beguiled them. The organ and pianos at intervals sent forth their varied tones to enliven the proceedings of the evening ; and at hall past ten o'clock, the (jarden was deserted for the tire It if worthy of remark, that more money has been received up to this day, by one third, than had been | received during the corresponding days of last year's exhibition Theatrical. Musical, and so-forth. The theatrical season in New York has been hitherto prosperous. The Park hits many engagements made, amongst whom are tlu Wallack, probably on his return from Boston, and Forrest. This will give the public an opportunity to see different conceptions of the same pieces by the most distinguished tragedians. Mr. and Mrs. Keeley are also expected here early in December. At the Chatham, the season has been successful beyond parallel Novelties succeed each other in quick succession, and dranutic talent of the first order is produced. Rice is crowding the house nightly, and his popularity appears to have greatly increased, as it deserves to do. Niblo's season has likewise been unparalleledly prosperous, but it is now drawing to a close. Of Mitchell, we hear but little. His little theatre was the rage a few seasons ago, and his novelties the subject of universal conversation ; but now the public appear to have changed their tune, and substituted " Oh, no! we never mention it." Judging from his play bills, it would appear that he is depending on the reputation of other seasons, for his "leading people," amongst whom was Mrs. Timtn, have been supplanted by inferior ones, and his (iecesare mainly old farces and revived burlesques. The French Operatic Troupe, with M.idame Calt? are at the Chesnut street Theatre, Philadelphia. Yankee Hill is at the Arcn street Theatre, Pnilsdelphia booth is there also. Mr. T. D. Rice?Jim Crow?is at the Chatham. Mudame Castellan is still delighting us with her concerts. Mrs. Sutton is still dt voted to tuition heie. Rusrel has proceeded to Philadelphia wnere he is giving concerts. The Ravel? go toMexico altercloaing their engagement at Niblo'f, where at present the Italian Opera Troupe and the Ravels alternate. The Ravels go to Pemambtico, in th?* barq'ie Maz?ppa, which leaves here on the 20.h. Thty have already engaged their p,^sage. Slic goes to Rio, but stops there to lanrt them. De B-gms is giving coucerts at Rochester in this I State Despite of the prevalence of the fever, arrange ments for the opening ot the New Orleans theatres are processing. The St Charles is announced to commence the season on or about the 1st November, and the American also. Mrs. A. D Selion man ?es the l&iter establishment, and announces English operas, with ihe>e?nins, Mr Burton, Hill, Arc. The St Charles, H Piacide, Mr. and Mrs Brougham, Kyderat.d Forrest. Mr. G.

It appear* that ho oommen] cedoperation* iu the fall of 1841, a* about that time Mr. Wm. 8.

The amount of the ship stores were deducted from the face of the check; and atrange as the practice appear* to be, the balance wu paid to the par' chaser in cash. When the cheok was sent to the bank, it wu found that no luch person kept an account there, and, afterwards, that there was no man by the name of Jamei Smith, who transacted business at 88 Wall street. In November, ofthe same year, he exiled at the store of W. and J. T- Tapscott.41 Peck slip, and calling himself Captain Moore, master of a vessel, purchase! a bill of ship stores for >10, and gave in payment a check on the Bank of America fur $60, drawn by Samuel Smith, of 93 Pearl street, and made payable to James Moore. He called a boy to send to the bank with the check, but Mr James T. Tapscctt, to save his customer trouble, gave him $40 in cash, and kept the check, which he alterwards lound to be worthless. In December,same year, he pased one on Win. 8ieveu(, 60 Water,street, lor $100, drawn on the Greenwich Bank by John Nile*, and r?ceived $0rt in change, having purchased a bill of goods for $10.

Hince then he appeal to have kept shy, although j oung Ashley as well an those who weie cheated by his operation*, and also the police, were on the look out for him. On Friday evening Hbout 8 o'clock, Mr. Ashley perceived the rogue in Ful'.on raatket, and sent to the policu lor an officer, when officer Dunshee immediately secured the gentleman anil lodged hnn in the watch house. He was recognized yesterday by all the above named persons who were duped by him, as well as others who have not yet entered their complaints We understand tkat he has thu* amassed c very handsome property on Long Island,near Flashing, where he hus been residing for years past us a firmer.

General Heaalona Before Kecordar TaUaaadge, and AMermuu Tiilou and Martin JtMU H. Whitiku, Ksq , Dutrict Attorney. October 14 ?7Vioi of " Mike Walik."?Thu trial of thia man tor a libel on Levi D. Slamm, published in "The Subterranean," on the 3d of September last, wus continued. The firat witness called by deience waa Levi D. Slamm, who testified that he waa aditorof tlm "Plebeian," and printer ol the Board of Aldermen. Anoaaw Ni.iaiTWaa next called and sworn, and tt tti tied as follow*?I know Levi D- Slamm and Mr. Walsh. Q?Have you had auy conversation with Slamm relative to Walsh'snominationt The Distkict Attoiciky objected, and a long argument ensued, in which counacl occupied about two hours time of the Court. Concluding, the Cooht asked the Diitriot Attorney if he abandoned the charge contained in the following words? "In our repeated caatigationa of thia political renegade, who would abjure hia principles, betray his country, blaspheme his Ood, and eulogize the devil lor a snug living. we find that we have been soverned bv a false de licacy." To which question thecoumel for defence took exceptioni. The District Attorney answers that he Joes,and that he did 10 yesterday previous to the introduction of tbe testimony of Mr. Slamm, and lie now statea that he ahall not claim a verdict against the defendant by reuon of any libellous matter contained in that paragraph. Mr. OitHiM asked tke Couit to enter also that they did not understand Mr. Whiting to say yesterday that he would abaodou that part of the charge which was entered. also, that the District Attorney refused to enter a nolle prtutqui in this part of the libel. He then offered to show by testimony that Hiamm had acted at a political renegade in various position* taken by him relative to Walsh. TheCouRT decided that all further testimony relative to the matter contained in the lib>-l that had been abandoned by the Dii*nct Attorney was ruled oat. Mr. Qraham then asked that the jury be discharged from a nirther hearing of the case, as the abandonment by the District Attorney of this part of the libel was equivalent to the entering of a noil* proitqui on the whole charge, a.t there was butone count in the indicimeut. The Court overruled the motion, and the counsel for defexce took exception to the decision.
