v i<ir IL f uj NEW YORK HERALD. Hew York, Sunday, February 11, 1844. Thk Masijckradk.?We give on our first page, ti description,with engravings, of a bal cottume,which took place in the u|>per part of the city, somewhere between the East and North Rivers. But the particular locality is of no sort of consequence. In the words of the publishers of the fashionable novels, at the circulating libraries, we can only say of this description that it is a fancy sketch, " founded on facts." if it do not strictly apply to any particular ball or masquerade that has taken place in New York, it may be regarded with perfect propriety as an accurate and faithful picture of all the most brilliant proceedings at all the various balls and masquerades which have been given, and we dare say that the patrons of this very respectable and moral species of amusement, will be uble to recogni-/^ Hie truth nf manv little touches. No one ctin for a moment doubt that the unavoidable tendency of these affairs, is to create die" order in society?to afford opportunities lor guilt? to open wide to the thoughtless and the erring, the avenues to infamy and ruin. There is a law against masquerades, imposing a fine we believe of #1000. But that of course would not operate as a prohibition. It would be very easy to take the Park Theatre, get up a masked ball, and with the proceeds pay the fine, pay #1000 for a supper, and have two or three thousand dollars profit into the bargain. We had thought of calling the notice of the Legislature to these affairs. But on the whole, we think that Stgnor Palmo will be the most efficient conservative of the public morals in this case. The opera will effectually suppress the masquerade.? When a refined, elegant, intellectual amusement is offered, all persons of tuste and genuine respectability will assuredly prefer it to one of very questionable morulity. The opera will flourish, and masquerades be left to the appropriate patronage of men without character, fools without brains, and women without virtue. Seduction, Abortion and Infanticide.?Re rpnt events nave developed the increase ot these offences against the laws, tending to show a state of morals in this city almost unparalleled at any former period. The most recent case is that of John Jones, button maker, of 26 Piatt street, against whom the Grand Jury of the Court of General Sessions have returned an indictment for procuring ubortion. The unfortunate girl, who made the representations before that body, had formerly been in the employ of Jones at his establishment in l'latt street, where he also has other females engaged. She is represented as an innocent, confiding, and pretty female, of about seventeen years of uge, name 1 Catherine Costello ; and her plain, unvarnished story of seduction, and subsequent abortion, as detailed before the Grand Jurors, caused many a tear to trickle down the cheeks ol the father and the brother, as she related it with heart-broken sighs and exhibitions of sor row and distress. The increase of these offences, that in almost every case rei.Jer the body and mind of the unfortunate sufferer, ever after, a mere blank in existence, calls loudly for the enactment of additional laws by our Legislature, rendering the offence of seduction punishable by criminal, instead of a civil penalty. From seduction follows the offence of abortion; end, if unsuccessful, then the crime of infanticide closes the two previous acts, in order to cover the shame of the seducer and his victim. i u? ueciaion in me cose 01 /uiiciiii i>onuun shows in a broad light that the leelings of jurors on thiR subject are swayed to a great extent by the all powerful influence of public opinion. It is this avalanche that all charged with these offences must bear themselves up against in future. It is this ordeal through which they must pass, and if innocent, we hope they may pass uninjured, but if guilty the majesty of the law should be sustained as an example to all future violators. The recent case of the Presbyterian minister, Judd, of Brooklyn, charged with the seduction of his servant girl, aged only eleven ycara, has caused great excitement in that city as well as in Newark and Paterson, New Jersey, where he was formerly stationed. He has escaped, and the vengeance of the law therefore remains unsatisfied. It is time that the legislature of this State made some movement in this matter. The offence of seduction, clearly proved, should be made a crime, and State prison offence or a misdemeanor at least, punishable by imprisonment in the penitentiary. The fear of such public exposure will tend to deter those from the commission of this offence who now practice their arts with success, and boast cf conquest. If deprivation of property?if paltiy peifis to be punished with incarceration in a prison, is not the cool, deliberate, calculating villain who, tinder the disguise of friendship and professed affwtinn rleafrnva (he virtue the neirr nnrl finally blasts the future haziness of an unfortunate contiding girl, still more guilty, and still more deserving of that punishment than the miserable shirtless thief who robs perhaps to hide his nakedness, or supply the longings of a starving appetite? The inefficiency of the existing laws to puuish this offence, has caused avengenient on the part of the relatives or friends of those injured, that should be exercised by the law alone, and it is perhaps the fear of this avengement alone that deters many a reducer from the accomplishment of his purpose. We live in a land of laws; we are people who profess to be governed by laws, and yet the exercise of a wrong in violation of all law, even to the destruction of life, has been sustained by jury after jury, when committed to avenge the seduction of an unfortunate sister or hapless daughter. It is therefore evident that additional legislation is necessary to correct existing evils, and we call upon the delegation from this city to show their gallantry in defence of the sex at the earliest period. The man who makes the first move upon thissuhject will receive the thanks and the warm expressions of gratitude of every female among his constituency, and what man can desire more than the heartfelt aoDlause of such advocates? Me- Winter's Chemical Paintings, which attracted so much ntt'-ntion during their 6tay in this city (previous to the accident by fire in the (Granite Building) have been drawing full and fashionable audiences for some time past in the city of Brooklyn. The proprietor has, in the meantime, been engaged in reproducing the one then lost, representing the Milun Cathedral, which was a decided favorite with all who visited it, from its peculiar beauties and effects, ami now offers it to the public.? Sec advertisement. The Two Ferries.?A fine new boat was launched in this city on Friday, by Bishop and ftimonson, for the Fulton Ferry Company ; this ferry is therefore much improved. A new steamer for the Cunard Atlantic Ferry is on the stocks, and will soon be launched; that ferry will then be improved. The price of passage over the Fulton lerry has be ;i reduced to two cents ; that over the Atlantic remains at $125. The Magnolia Ball given on Friday evening at National Hall, is said to have eclipsed nny of the previous efforts of the managers. It is rare that such a mixture of political antipodes were ever seen on one floor, and yet all was as harmonious as the music was excellent, and the ladies beautifnl. Singular Indian Sight.?Che-mnck-cum-a-cat, I'ie-shc-kee, Kee-o-kush, Ma-ma-man-o-way, and several other of the Pottawotamie and Fox Indiana are in town. They hold a grand council in the Tabernacle to-morrow evening, and will exhibit a curious savage spectacle to the civilized portion of this city. Uk Course.?The tine brigs Macon, Capt. Lewis, Georgians, Capt. Bedell; and Moon, Capt. Ilayes, recently heat the mail in running from this city to Savannah and Charleston. teffMgWLULjf .L-LJU L.

It is the intention of the citizens of Galveston, also, although they consider an attack upon the island, by Mexico, as hardly probable, not to disregard entirely the warnings which have been sent them, ut to be in readiness for whatever may happen. An amendment to the tariff bill has been proposed in the 8enate, the effect ol which, if adopted, will he to lix a duty ot fifteen per cent ad valorem on all articles except ardent spir ta, wines, and a few articles which are now admitted free of duty. The Housten Telegraph of the '14th inst. lias the following statement One of the members of Congress at Washington, received a letter bv the last mail from the United States, from a gentleman who resides in South Carolina, announcing that a letter from Wushiugtou was received about the 36th of December, in which it wrai stated positively that a resolution had been passed in the Senate of thu United States by a majority of two-thirds of the members present, for the annexation of Texas to the United States! * ? * * ? In the information contained in the following paragraph from the same paper, we have more faith:? "Much anxiety has been manitested to ascertain the views of the President and of the members of Congress, relative to the question of annexation. We mentioned some weeks since that we were confident that the President was secretly, if not openly, in favor ol this measure. We are now happy to state that this opinion was correct. We learn that tne dispatches latety sent to the United 8tates, by C. Raymond, Fsq, related to this subject. It appears tnat Mr. Upshur,the American Secretary of State, several weeks since, addressed a note to Mr. Van Zandt, our Charge at Washington, informing him that he desired to open uegociations with him relative to the annexation of Toxas to the Union. Mr. Van Zandt not having received any instruction* from his government relative to this subject, despatched Mr. Raymond to this country to obtain instructions. It was probably the neglect of Mr. Van Zandt to return a definite answer to Mr. Upslmr that caused the report to be circulated in Washington, that our government declined to negociate for the annexation. In the meantime Mr. Raymond arrived here, received instructions from tho President, directing Mr. Van Zandt to withdraw all propositions for the annexation of Texas to the United States, unless there were a certi'inty that it could be effected; alleging as his reasons for this course, that if the negociation* proceeded, F.ngland would withdraw her valuable services. Thatjhe could not compromise the national Honor by playing a double game with F.ngland and the United States; by lidding out offers to the latter that would be exceedingly offensive to tho former. What course Mr.Van Zandt will take upon the subject, we are unable to conjecture; but it saems not improbable that lie will renew the negociations._ it ho receives assurances from Mr Upshur that there is a reasonable prospect that the measure will be effected. Whether there I is a "certainty " ol success caunoi no ueiurmincu wuuv n I reals upon the future conduct of fallible men. Congress, on the other hand, has adopted deciaive meaturea. Wo understand that a circular has been addressed hythe members of l>oth Houses of Uongress, to the members of the ConKress of the United States who are friendly to Texas, declaring that they believe that at least nine-tenths of the ' people of Texas would most cheerfully be willing that our government should embrace any overtures from the United States, having for their object the political annexation of Texas, on a footing in nil resnects equal with the other States of the Uuion.' We learn that this circular has been signed by every member of Congress except one; and has been forwarded to Mr. Gilmer, of Virginia, to be 1 presented to the Congress of the United Stutes. Our Congress, in taking this course, is hut noting in accordance ! with the express instructions of the people of Texas, who in 18^6, when they adopted tho Constitution, by vote instructed the oltieers elected under the Constitution, to annex Texas to the United States. We consider, therefore, that our government is compelled by tho sovereign voice of tho people, to occept any overtures for annexation made by tho government of the Unitod States, whenever tho opportuny i? offered." The Galveston Civilian of the 27th inst. gives the fol We lesrn that nn American vessel has txsen seized at Sabine, and, with her cargo, retained for adjudication for an attempt to evade the revenue lawa by carrying a cargo of 300 bales of Texas cotton to New Orleans without having cleared at the Custom House,the object of the attempt being to smuggle the cotton Into New Orleans as the product of the United States. Another vessel, we learn, succeeded in getting off without a clearance, with a cargo of cotton, but information has been forwarded to New Orleans which will lead to the seizure of both the vessel and i cargo, and the forfeiture ot both for this attempt to evade the revenue laws. The revenue collected at the Custom House in Oalveston from 1st November to the 21st instant, was $.'>1,839 4-2, and will probably reach $05,000 for the quarter, which expires with the' month. The amount collected last year for the corresponding quarter was $20,450 11, or less by one-half than that of the present. At this rate the duties collected at Galveston the coming year will equal those of the whole republic for the past. The fate of the Navy is explained by the annexed very brief and pithy correspondence:? Kxtract of a (letter from the commander of the naval station at Galveston:? To the Hen. Secretary of War axd Mariiye:?

Signed W. A. TKNNISON, Lt. Com. The Houston Telegraph of the 30th, in a letter from Washington, says:? Com. Moon- arrived here on Friday last, and presented his petition to both Houses, accompanied witn a book, praying the honorable Congress to give his conduct, touching the navy, the most rigid investigation. Nothing has vet been done on his case. 11' Congress take upon itself to organize into a court martial upon his case, it will necessarily be kepi here some weeks longer than it otherwise would have been It was expected before he arrived, thnt Congress would have adjourned on the 23d inst. or ao soon as the appropriation hill passed. City Intelligence. Police?Saturday.?House Breaker!.?These rogue! ore gradually creeping into prominent notice. A fellow named William Dixon, who says he ii a house carpenter of 111 South itreet, wa* arrested while in the act of carrying away a quantity of carpenter's tools, belonging to William' Kent, of 135 Walker street. He was locked up for trial. Asother.?The stationery store of Thomas W. Strong, 09 Nassau street, was entered on the 7th instant, by forcing n rear window sash, and silver pencil cases and other articles stolen, valued at $47. Two of the young rogues have been at rested and the others aro in the eves of that vigilant police oflicer F.manuel Joseph, of the Fourth Ward. Coroner's Office?Saturday.?Suicide.?An inquest was held on the body of Ailguste M. llobinson, leather dealer, of64 West Broadway, who had committed suicide the night previous. On the investigation it was ascertained that the deceased had been laboring under a strange delusion tor several weeks past, and had indulged to exress in drinking wine and brandy. He had imagined that his house was about to lie entered, at night and day, by men who desired to rob him and take his life, and he had therefore prepared himself with pistols and a double barrelled gun for defence. On Friday evening he retired to his room, and a short time afterwards a report of a gun was heard in that portion of the house. On application at the door it was found locked on the inside, and on being broken open the deceased presented a shocking exhibition. He had placed one ol the barrels of the gun in his mouth Md then fired it. the rontents carrying oil' the tap of his skull and scattering his brains about the room. He was a native of France, aged about 39 years, and has no relatives in this country. The deed is supposed to have been committed while the deceased was tailoring under partial insanity, produced by excessive drink. Axotiiek Victim,?An inquest was also held on an unfortunate deceased ss'oman named Celia Little, who had resided at 146 Anthony street, who came to her death by inflammation of the lungs produced by intemperance. Chantrky's .Statue of Weuunoton.?The City Equestrian Statue of Wellington, to be erect ed between the Mansion House and the Royal Exchange,' London," on the 18th June next, is on the following immense scale :? ft. in.

The woman and boy ure both in jail. Mr, Harris's family, we are happy to learn, are out of danger. The Atlas says it iqqieared on examination of the parties, and by the confession of the boy, that while the family, consisting of Itebecca Harris, the sister-in-law of Mr II , a young lady named Miss Lovrtt, who was on a visit from Schenectady, and a hostler named James Dinnegan. were preparing for tea. Oat field, the colored boy, who was occasionally emplojed by Mr. II., asked If nc should turn some water upon the ten. which he did ; and he took this occasion to infuse the poison.

Feelinga ukouf Spencer?t Rejection. We liave but little of interest going on just now in this city, and were it not lor the occasional balls at Congress Hall and oyster suppers at the Governor's House, u living here would not be bearable. I frequently wish the Governor had some two or three thousand more offices left him to give away, that the rich scenes of last winter might be revived and Albany again made a place of life. In legislation, matters progress but slowly. The Committee on Constitutional Reform have made their report, consisting of three or four amendments, which is about the extent which the committee is prepared to go in this matter. Hoffman looks on and Acquiesces in these movements, but to my knowledge it is to lull them into a confident repose, from which they will be startled when least aware of it, by the introduction of his bill for a Convention ; and us things now look, it would not be very surprising if he should lind force sufficient to carry his darling project. I have promised you a sketch of the prominent men in the Legislature?their standing, tak nts and inflnpnPH T.et rue hppin willi Ihe "Old Admiral." as lie is facetiously called; a name given him in Congress, when Chairman ofthe Naval Committee, because of his opposition to the recommendations ofthe Navy Department to create the grade of admirals in the service. Well, then, the Admiral is about fifty years old, live feet eight or nine inches in heighth, of a very scare frame, square shoulders, one higher than the other, and upon which rests a large and splendidly developed head, covered with thick hair, almost white, but which falls upon bis back and around his neck in long and graceful curls. The dress of the Admiral is like his character, sui gcnerit, consisting of a frock coat, something the color of his hair, pantaloons made of the same material, and a double-breasted black cloth vest, with but a single button to hold it together. This is the outward Admiral, as he is strolling through the House, with his spectacles twirling tound his finger, after the fashion of Willis with his walking stick, and conversing with the memhers, or moping over the bills on the Clerk's table. An interesting debate is going on?"Mr. Speaker," is heard from the centre of the House, or at the corner, or somewhere else, for the Admiral has no seat?and immediately you see the little man, spectacles in hand, getting a position where all may be enabled to see him. Hisexordium isslow, distinct, and disposed to create mirthfulness in the House? his head is much bent, resting upon his breast, and but little of the face is to be seen. That is through with?he seizes upon the argumentative points or the subject?now look at the man as lie warms into the discussion, tearing from and throwing aside the rt asonings of his adversary as though they were but play tilings for him to handle, and it only for the amusement of the House. lie is not the same person?he is full six feet in heiglith?his piercing black eves tell you of ihe mind which they reflect?his Grecian face is all expression?his lips come together at the close of each sentence with a firmness calculated to heighten the effect of the en ttmbic?every eye is upon him?there is no pausing in his speech?110 stopping for words or ideas, they come as fast as he can give utterance to them?on he leaps from point to point, from argument to argument, until nature gives .way, Jand the old man victorious, is forced into his seat. A minute passes before the House recovers itself, when a "Mr. Speaker," is again heard, and the Chair announces "the gentleman from Oswego." This is Michael Hoffman, the generous, kind, frank, intelligent, and all powerful Michael Hoffman, md what do you think of himl A petition was presented last Tuesday from a few capitalists of your city, requesting the legislature to instruct our members in Congress to vote a grant to them of some fifteen millions of dollars,for losses which they sustained some fifty or sixty years since in the seizures of their vessels and property by the Freneh. It was opposed by some on me grouna mat tne legislature was not tne proper place for these claimants to press their cause ; a majority thought different ana it was referred to a select committee, having for its chairman Major Davezac. Do you know anything about this matterl Report says here, that it is as peculating piece of business, but whether true or not I am not prepared to state. It might, however, be well to look into the matter. I am informed that all the members of the legislature have signed u paper to the President of the United States for the appointment of Chancellor Walworth for the vacant judgeship in the Supreme Bench, and it is here thought that he is to he the successful man after all. Tne whigs are in great glee at the failure of Spencer, but curse the folly of the Senate in their indiscriminate rejection, as it is calculated in the end to injure them. Joe Smith, Jr. Mobile.

Considering your valuable journal as the chronicle of all important events that transpire in this Republic of ours, I have attempted to give its nu merous renders a briel description of tne sayings and doings of Mobile, which has so rapidly grown up in the last ten years, not only in strength and beauty, but in refinement of society. The pulpits of the various churches are adorned by pious and talented pastors; the only rivalry existing between them is as to who can perform the most good; it is to be hoped those gentlemen will unite in removing a great evil?I allude to the desecration of the Sabbath by those who, regardless of all religious or moral duty, keep their stores open for the purpose of trading and trafficking. ] understand there is a law prohibiting such practices; why it is not enforced I know not. We have had avariety of amusements; at one time this season there was in operation two theatres^two circusses, concerts, balls'nnd cotillon parties. T he operatic troupe, consisting of the Seguins, Shrival, Archer, and Becket, fulfilled a most brilliant en gageinent at the Corinthian; the crowds nightly attracted consisted of the beauty and fashion of the city, and Mobile never sent out such a gallaxy of (Viir nni>H to bestow their smiles unon those who graced the boards of this little theatre. Ole Bull lias completed his engagement, and made a failure as regards creating excitement sufficiently to fill the purses of the managers of the Mobile theatre. This was owing to raising the price of admission? an act which very correctly met with the decided disapprobation of the citizens. To-morrow night comes ofl the ball in honor of the Governor; it is a military affair got up by the 1st Volunteer regiment. Many young men come here in the full expectation of obtaining situations, but, alas! how inanv are compelled to leave in despair, and nlmost dimeless. These remarks are equally applicable to mechanics, for the seapon for building is when Mr. Yellow Jack pays us a visit.

As regards politics, Mobile is decidedly whig, and that party are using every effort to carry the State. Many of the friends of Mr. Calhoun will support Harry ot the West in pteferance to the sage of Lindenwold. Our city has latterly been infested by a gang of pick-pockets and burglars; their operations have been curtailed considerably by the police; the Slate will have to pay many of their passages to Wetumpka. Cotton has fallen J cent on the pound. Alabama money 4 to 5 per cent discount. The market stocked with dry goods and provisions. Archibald. Mr. Editor:?Will you not request from some one of your numerous correspondents, and publish, the opinion of the court granting a new trial to Thomas Marsh, recently convicted of muder at Newark, New Jersey ? The power of granting new trials is, perhaps, necessarily incidental to all courts of original jurisdiction, but the exercise ol this power is one of the most dangerous duties any court is ever called upon to discharge. And in the case of Mursh, to grant him a new trial, for the reason assigned, (i. c. the alleged sudden sickness of the senior counsel,) strikes me as being not only wholly indefensible on principle, but the grossest insult ever yet known offered to the intelligence of a jury, who are sworn to render their verdict upon the evidence produced to them, and not on the distorted and one-sided views of counsel, and when deliberate conviction of the guilt of the accused, founded on the evidence, is arbitrarily set aside, bpcausc, forsooth, one of the counsel is too ill to address them, and their verdict was made up without the nid of his remarks. If ihis law prevail, I should like to know who will ever again he convicted in a capital case. Verily, " in a multitude of counsellors there is safety."

Erie, Feb. 6, 1844. Death of a IVorthy Lady?Business?Libel Suits? Boarding Schools?Hot elt?Iron Steamers. Since my last a number of events have taken place, interesting in themselves, though not of uny marked importance in a social or political point of view. Death has been very busy and has been carrying oft' one or two persons, and amongst them the wife of our excellent minister, the Rev. Henry Tulleage of St. Paul's Church. In the death of thia excellent lady, our community has sustained no ordinary loss; and it is doing injustice to her virtues to allow her to terminate her earthly pilgrimage, without any tribute of respect and affection from those who knew and loved her. But we doubt not that she is now gone to reap the rich rewards of the " good and faithful servant." Be yc also ready ! We have some sleighing at last. On Friday the 2d inst.. for the first time this winter, I was aroused from'my sleep by the merry jingle of the sleigh bell. Every one appears to be taking advantage of it. Our markets for the few last days have been flooded.? Produce is very low?flojir $3 50 per barrel; pork and beef, 2& to 3 cents; venison and bear meat, 3 to5 cents per lb.; turkeys 28 cents; geese 12fc cents; chickens cents; ana vegetables in proportion.? Withal, " times are hard," and money, a commodity no longer visible; the majority of business here being done on the trade system. So far this winter we have not had any very cold weather. The mercuryhas not yet got so low as zero; however the lake appears to be frozen over as far as the eye can reach, average thickness of the ice, twenty inches. About forty miles from this place u vessel lias been discovered last 111 the ice; she is about ten miles out in the lake, and smoke is daily seen to rise from her. She is probably the schooner New York, which was supposed to nave been lost this iall with all hands on board. Our excellent friend and citizen, the Hon. Charles M. Heed is expected here daily from Washington. The nature of his errand is to attend the trial of two editors whom he prosecuted during his election for libel. The nature of the libel is that the editors charged the General, with being the cause ol the burning of the steamboat Erie, and the loss ol life, inasmuch as the General owned the Erie, and the turpentine which caused the fire the General was fetching to this place to paint another of his boats. Now, the General is rather a clever sort ol a business man, immensely rich, but not much ol an aristocrat, and don't like to be accused pf killing as many men at once as was lost in the Erie. The work on the steam brig Michigan progresses slowly; however, the cabin, wardroom and steerage, is nearly finished; her quarters are very small; there is only six state rooms in the wardroom. It is thought her engines will not be entirely set up before August; she will have three masts, the loremast Bquare, and the main and mizzenmast fore und aft rigged. We have now one of the best boarding schools for young ladies in the State. The principals and teachers are two young ladies from Canada, and recommended to the citizens of this place very highly by the present Governor General of Canada:? They have quite a large school already, and occupy a marble palace which once belonged to Nick Biddie's bank. There ure some five hotels here, of which the Ileed House is the largest, and is built after the style of the Astot house, in New York. I beg you would'nt mention it! However, it is good for u country hotel. Colonel Roswell Rowley is "mine host." He is a fine little (at man, and has always a good joke on hand.

Henry A. Wise, M. C. from Virginia, is confirmed Minister to Brazil. Done to-day in executive session. It is understood that he was confirmed by all the Democratic, together with a few Whig votes. So that matter is ended. Gov. Gilmer, (Thomas W. Gilmer,) also M. C. from Virginia, will undoubtedly be appointed Secretary, either of the Navy or of War?not settled which at this present writing.

Several committees submitted reports upon minor, individual and local matters. gen. .tackson's fine. Mr. Davton presented resolutions of the Legislature of New Jessey, instructing their Senators to vote in favor ol refunding the tine. Mr. Dayton took occasion to deny the binding force oi those instructions. The Senate was never instituted to be a Mahometan chess board on which Senators were by others made to play a game as suits their pleasure. He went on at length to give his views upon the doctrine of legislative instructions, for the benefit, as he said, of the New Jersey Legislature. Mr. Milt.bh also presented his like instructions from the same Legislature, but withheld his remarks until the bill should lie called up. district ok columbia lunatic asylum bill. This bill was called up. Col. Merrick said the Lunatics of this District have hitherto been support* -i * ? .11 tt !a._i tr. 1 J .. : 1 ? eu at me xvxaryianu nospuai. iie nau icgnyru a communication froin the principal of that hospital, stating that $3000 were not enough to cover the exjiense. $>3000 were due last 10tn December, and the sum due by next 10th March, when it is expected they will be removed, will be $3075. Col. M., therefore, moved to strike out $3000, and insert $4000. It was done. Col. Merrick said the number of lunatics at present supported at the Maryland Hospital is 15. Mr. Mii-leh said in answer to Mr. Allen, that Congress had declared twenty-live persons to be pauper lunatics. He said the only question was, who should support those pauper lunatics?Congress, or the district Kiiteen are supported at Baltimore ?and some are in the jails in this district. $10,000 ha? been appropriated by Congress for the preparation of an asylum in this district, which has been done. Money is now wanted to remove these lunatics from Maryland to this district, and to support them here, A few years since one of these very lunatics attempted to assassinate the President of the United States. He was tried lor the offence, and pronounced insane. It was his case which then originated this system. The annual appropriation hereafter required will be about $5000. This would be a moderate amount for the purposes required te support thepliys iciani, inspectors and lunatics. Mr. Allen claimed to be as charitable as Mr. Miller, but he thought the district ought to support these lunatic paupers. When the matter was first originated, all that tvas asked was $10,000 to fit up a building lor these lunatics. Now, it seems, we are required to support them too. The bill provides that lunatics coming from other States shall be sent back again to those States. Therefore let the district support their own lunatics. In Ohio were 146 lunatics?annual expenses of whom about $00, less than one-half of what is asked for the support of these lunatics. Send back to the 8tates their own lunatics, and this district will not have more j than A or 0 to support. Whereas, if you give $9000 this year, yon will aslc for $10,000 next year, because this number will be doubled, for all the States in the Union will s nd their surplus lunatics to this 10 miles square, to be supported, out oi the public purse. Col. Merrick said Mr. Allen certainly could not intend to accuse the neighboring States with a deliberate purpose to palm off upon this dictrict their own pauper lunatics, for whose care thev have made ample provisions. As to the Ohio expenses, all lie had to say was that living is much cheaper in Ohio than it is here. Mr Allen wanted to know what reason Col. Merrick had to suppose there would be a rush of lunatics to this district ifuic States did not send them here. Col. Merrick stud it was a fact in natural history that these poor deluded creatures were always attracted towards great and important objects?presidents, congressmen, kings, queens, &c., like moths attracted about so many gas lights. Her Majesty the Queen of England has had the honor of experiencing several attempts at assassination from this class of people, althuugh these attempts to extinguish her noble race seem likely to prove aiiortive. Mr. Haywood would not vote for the bill, because the compensation to inspectors is not enough, if they are to be paid at all, and it is too much if they render their services "V " AUneittr Tltaip aolon- 1sti 11 tirtf tvr.xrnru tliti right sort of men.

Jamaica.?By the arrival of the schooner Alida, we have files or Kingston papers to the 18th instant The Despatch of that date, states that the long-continued drought has become a matter of general complaint throughout tho island, and threatens to cause a considerable diminution of the ensuing crop. The trial of Mr. Desmones, for the robbary of the Bank at Kingston, which had been in progress some time, resulted in the acnuittal of that person, and tho affair continues still involved in mystery. The principal topic of discussion, both in the Legislative Assembly, and by the Press, is the rapid dncay of the (-oiony an<i the hett means ot restoring it to the condition or prosperity which it wm previous to the act of liberation. Vigorous efforts are contemplated to induce the Home Government to grant such pecuniary aid to the islands, as will enable them to carry out the plans of emigration heretofore attempted, and to open new sources for the supply of laborers. China is now looked upon as the most available field, and the [.and nnd Emigration Commissioners have already established regulations to govern, the Chinese immigration, which is invoked.

QtJ- THE PACKET SHIP "OXFORD."?Th* recent discovery which has been made by the Collector of this Port, that this truly fortunate and 'fast sailing ship had on board a quantity of smuggled good* from Liverpool, ban caused no inconsiderable sensation in the public mind, particularly on account of the high standing in mercantile estimation of the house ol Goodhue, Marshall and Co , and also the untpieationable, proud and independent position which Captain Rath bone, aa her commander, has hitherto been known to possess, by a discriminating and an admiring community. The individual who could for a moment suppose, much less entertain the idea, that any one of the big h-minded and honorable gentlemen that com|>osu the firm of Goodhue, Marshall and Co , or the captain, who is universally esteemed for frankness, anda ctuated at the same time by the highest sense of feeling,honor, and principle, could, under any circumstance, be induced to winlc at the conduct of the first mate of the ship 111 question, nnut lie one of a class whose brain would And convenient, deposit in a nutshell. Surely it Is not?nay, it cannot be possible, that any portion of this community should be so blind Jor destitute of the ordinary faculties of thought and reflection, that they could not at once perceive, that it the owners or captain of the "Oxford'' participated in the least degree in the improper conduct of the second officer in command, that the ship would be exposed to confiscation by our Government, and ju? too, but as it is manifest to every thinking mind, that the mate is the guilty person, he alone should tie punished for being accessory to an effort which, if successful, would have cheated our Government out of a portion of its revenue, and perhaps contribute, in no small degree, to expose the parties interested in the " Oxford'' to great expense and considerable inconvenience. It must be admitted, then, beyond all doubt or uncertainty, that the owners of the " Oxford" could not legally be made liable for the conduct of a subordinate officer in a foreign port, who has already confessed that he alone is the only person on whom the consequences resulting from the impropriety of the act he committed, should be visited, and not the owners, as they were perfectly innocent of Ills having transcended his instructions. One salutary effect the late development of smuggling w ill have is, that no more goods will be attempted to be smuggled into this port, by any of the subordinate officers en2??i ? a. r.n henceforth it will be a paramount duty ot each and every one of our intrepid, high ipirited, and patriotic commandera, to keep a watchful eye upon their respective mate*, and curtail a portion of that uuthority which it appeara they have hitherto, aa well as now, injudiciously exorcised.

The steam ship Hlhernia, from Liverpool for Jloston, has been at sea six days, her day of sailing being the 4th instant. She will bring many days later intelligence, although it ir very probable we shall have a sailing packet in before she arrives. The repeated nrrivals within the past week, ull bringing favorable reports ol the Liverpool Cotton Market, has increased the speculative fever to a great extent. Holders are anxiously awaiting the advice?|bv the steamer. Very moderate shipments will take place lieforc her airival. The state of the Liverpool market, on the departure of the Hoscius, was such aito create the most favorable anticipations. The steamship Hibomin, from Boston the 1st of January, arrived at noon the day the Rosrius left; consequently, the advices taken out by her, which were uncommonly unfavorable regarding the new crop, could not have had time to inAuenca the market very materially prevb oiu to the departure of the pocket. The Lurope was to sail on the 10th of January, three days afttr the arrival of the steamer, giving time for the account* from this side to have an inAuencn on the market. That influence, judging from the tenor ot the advices that left this country, must have been very favorable
