I have been to overwhelmed a? not to havo had time to write a letter from Saratoga I will tend it from Pniladelphia. You can edify the town with a droll tvmt, on Mouday. that Fanny escaped from the lightning yesterday by an hour only She went aboard the " Ville do Lyon," the first American packet she hat soeu per invitation, and was enchanted with our Ametican satin and rosewood. Who'aint? Well, she hurried borne to get out of the rain She hadn't left it an hour before the lightning struck and carried otrtlie gangw ay she had Just left. Her attraction is getting stronger than ever, since she brings the lightning down a la Franklin The sailors exclaimed they had had two unusual visitors, the lightning and Fanny EUsler, the one iroin Heaven direct, the othar ou her way.

Why did you not come an'i ie? iu at thn theatre last evening f I told Madumoiielluand her cousin you were coming, and they accused me of humbugging them. I think I have not told you that besides the baggage, a trifle, the strongest reason for not coming to the Alitor House, was the fear of encountering that dumn'd Marquis, but it seems I was more scared than hurt in this case When I come back in a few days, 1 will get you to introduce me to Stetson, and I shall la'ko that opportunity of expressing myself upon the subject el his sensible and manly conduct in thelato "moral war'' I have given Charles, the servant, a list of names of the persons I wish to send the "Herald" to, with the letter of " Fanny's visit," ko Allow me to thank you in advance, for the intended publication of this article : it is admirably drawn up under your direct ou, as I understand ; it cannot fail to do great service to Mademoiselle, lor which I hope you will give her an opportunity of thanking you during my absence. I am annoyed somewhat?you cut out what I wrote ot yourself?it is badly enough done to be sure, but there is no other reason for not publishing it. My best respect to Mrs. Bennett. Vours, truly. WVKOFF. Jones' IfOTLL, PlllLAOCLrilll, Nov. 1,1310. Mr Desk IIkmnett,? 1 will send this on by a very worthy, sensible man, Mr Pratt. .Manager of the* Cheanut street theatre: he desires strongly to make your acquaintance; he will tell you of the probability of Miss Fanny's playing with him three nights on tier way to New Orleans, next week. May I ask the lavor ot your publishing the "letter"cn Friday morning next, if it will not cost you a sacrifice to <lo co" I want to have it published here for effects iakr, on Saturday next; so that it may tell on Kanuy'a probable engagement next week I will pay tor it with the frratest pleasure, bu. I wiah to have it published not later than that day. 1 should not say this much, but I desire to insert it as an advertisement, though n?* so announced. it is rather too much to ask of your good nature to publish all that without making a proper remuneration. I do not like my friends to suffer losses, great or small, for me?and as 1 wish the whole letter in, it must crowd out a good deal that will pay. Stick it in on Friday morning; I will inform myself of the cost thereof?a secondary consideration?but you will not disappoint me in the publication I want to send otfagood many in the packet of the Hth. Yours, truly, II. W1KOFF. Have you called on Mademoiselle and her cousin? or are you too busy election week! They expect to see you. Mr Dsaa Ben**tt I send you Md'lle Fanny's little speech for to-night, and shall be much obliged for its insertion :? "1 never appear before a Neto Yoik audience without trembling witli emotion. 1'was here the first hand was raised to greet me ; it was here the first cheer was given that welcomed me to America. And come when 1 may, 1 meet with ever the same friendly faces, the samo warm smiles, the same honest enthusiasm.

But you believe I am grateful lor all?do you not I caut help to say, my deer B??, that I think you wrong to let off entirely that roaring Nichols?in three linas you could demolish him without ratsing him to the dignity of a contest. rHn.iDEt.rHiA, May 6, I#12.

I see in your paper a card of Mr. Make'* in Simpson's name?don'i be deceived by ill sophistry?all 1 desi.e is, what I know you will pursue, a disinterested course in this discussion Mad'lle Klssler will no doubt answer Mr Simpson?and 1 am sure the public will have reason to be satisfied with Mad'lle Klssler's conduct. Some remarks will oe made by way of explanation, that will come in for their share of notice in your philosophical essay hereafter?at least, 1 hope so. Bestrespocts to Mrs. B. and family. Mr Dean Bsikitt? 1 hope yon are better this morning. In case you say anything of Fanny, here is an item or so. They say Fanny's gains are great?but her expenditure is equally liberal, not to say princely?she has got through in the last six weeks, $10,000. Hliu made $MK>0 by her last en gagement?consequently, by the .Simpson i-atrulation, she lost $M00 by that utTiir, since she has spent oOOO she didn't malti. -by way oi encouraging domestic manulactures, slio has bought two fine fancy hlis of blood, and a New York built carriage, set up a muntua maker, made herself popu lar with the firemen, (the next engine ought to be Fanny EUtler,) had a ' fight'' with Simpson, and given away in good "works" this time in New York, $1000. Eight poople go otf irotn here in the " llapid,"' under Field Marshal (Juries?the rest, headed by the Marechale Fanny, in the' Louisa'' from Philadelphia-both vessels start the same day Look out for a race.

It is odd, as this attack came from the Express and Aurora, that you, knowing the facts, did not throw a line of denial at them. I fear Irom this you are still confined to the house, but I hope not bad. We leave on Friday morning The vessel is a bijou, end all parties are delighted with her. May I ask you to observe the paragraph in the Philadelphia papers about Mdlle fc. . it is rather amusing, she has been elected a member of the Temperance Socio ty here, and she has asked for a book, with the authority of the society, to make collections of her friends for the good ol the cause, bhe has done tills in Paris frequently lor the poor.

I will cheerfully comply with your request o( writing to you occasionally?perhaps Irequeniiy?hut I am again plunged in the vortex ot fasnionahle society, and my time is egregiously occupied, and, of course, idly wasted. But I dusira to gloss myself over with a lashionable polish after my late irregularity with Fanny Klsster. You say, "you thought it would come to that." Well, it has come to that, runny, the stupid, always thought 1 would marry her. I refused plump on arriving in Loudon The quarrel began, and 1 carried it on with vigor, tor I desired eurnettly to be set tree. Mhe is an aouahle, good creature, in many respects: but there are the strongest reasous, public and private, why 1 should cut asunder Horn her. I will tell you all about this some day.

I can't help writing you to thank you for your good Judgment in suppressing the publication of the letter where 1 spoke so loolishly and inconsiderately ot Funny 1 haJv regretted it ever since, and winced under the comments that might have been made upen it. But fortunately your friendly and sensible interposition has prevented this thoughtlessness ot mine doing me any injury. The rest ef the letter may still be published, with a latet date aflixed.

By tho bye, did you ever near of an excellent anecdote el the father ot iny friend ?the well known Mr. Oliver, of Baltimore. When in Kuiope some years ago, he was dining one day with thu Duke of Wellington, and the subject turned upon wines Krom the sensible remarks of Mr Oliver, the Duke soon tormed an opinion, shared in by his noble company, that all Vaukecas he was, that hi* palate was not unused to " true Kuleruiau." " Very well," says the Duke, whui you say of the treatment of Madeira is very true?1 quite ugreu with you; but we'll sec it ) ou can talk as knowing ly of claret. 1 think 1 have some that you never ta?ted the like of belore?the gift ot hi* most graaious Majesty.'' The noble convives all smacked their lips, as the butler moved oil in searcn of the "divine nectar" alluded to I came, and the strongest eulogiunis were pronounced upon it by all <V ramyuny. Mr Oliver alone was silent " Well, sir," said the Duke, "your opinion?is not that the huif claret you ever drank "Shall I give my true judgment?" responded Mr. Oliver. "Certainly, sir." " Wall, then, 1 hope you will not lie offended it I pronounce it trash." " Trash echood the astonished Duke, and tho company stared in amazement. " Ves, your grace ? downright irath." " Let me taste it Why, that is not the wine;" and the Duke called tho butler, who, it was discovered, had put tin ordinaire on the table fur the rich bevoraifo the Duke meant his sruests to hav? nariutun m He apologised to them, though greatly amused at their h coniuaion; ami looking at the blunt Auieriuuu.said?"1 ad I nut your correct judgment, aud like you better ior its i plain avowal."

Halt past ten, P. M. have just arrived, alter a rapid run, interrupte ntervalsatihediti'erent townsalong the road,wit ;er inquiries as to the state of feeling in New rk. It was somew hat amusing to hear the difli t order of the various rumors which we rece I in exchange, each approaching mors near t truth as we advanced to the scene of opern as. Want struck inu most forcibly upon uiy tin ering the city, was the remarkable quiet wluc vaded it; but it was not the quiet of serenity.rids of policemen, both volunteer and reguls re j>atrnling the streets, or posted in detachmeni he corners, wearing on their lints white badge: rihed " Peace Police," ami some of ihei rying swords and other weapons. Here an re a soldier might he seen passing by on his wa nin his station; and occasionally a hand ot arm horsemen 01 stall' officers would dash along th et, startling the stillness of the night fo eral moments by the clatter ot thei ses hoots. lint beyond this ther carcelv n noise to be heard, and the conversatio he guard and patrol is carried on in a suppreese e, which denotes its earnestness and mnmen er seeming my rooms, 1 sallied out to visit th twith acloser scrutiny, and dropping in the Cit tel on my way up town. Cell in with a coinmii of the New \ ork American liepnblicans, heac by Job Haskell, who had corneon intliesam n with myself, for the purpose of inquiring int state of Voting America's affairs here, an king ail official report thereon. From the Cit tel I went into Fourth street, to see the remain the Catholic church ot .St. Augustine e destruction of this edifice lias been com :e. But four walls of blackened and crumblin sonry stand as it relic of the former pile. Not I is near it now. Last night a mob of savag I infuriated thousands swarmed to its de iction. The scene is one of utter desolation c very grave yard had been despoiled, unil ged uperture in the solid wall now yawns wher former gates erewhile shut out the sacriligiou t from intrusion on the dead. While 1 stooi :mg at the scene, n dog struggled out of th 11s, and after regarding me a moment from th itre door, skulked slowly away. A methodic ;pel, nearly opposite this scene of devastation ids in striking contrast, serene an cathed. (hi rounding the corner, I mt ody of the U.

They were a portion of a liundre n who have been detailed from the Princeto n-of-war. 1 next went into the upper part of th l to 13th street, in which is situaterltlie Cathedri St. John's. Across the entrance of this streel Market street, I found a large body of nulitar ioned, under the command of General Cudwa er, who protected the street against all passug Admission. There were several superior officei the ground, one of whom, wheniny acquaintin l .villi the fact that 1 was desirous of learning a p uliculars of the true state of affairs in the cut ilie use of the New York Herald, very readil erne all the information in his power. "N ious outbreak had occurred since the previou lit, and things now promised fair for a speed irn to peace and security. A report had bee uglit in that a young man named Haver letnber of one of the first families in the city ha n shot down in Sixth street near Poplar, from ioe,while he wa< passing quietly along. He died i lut five minutes afterwards. There was no mo lumullTol any kind near the place at the tuni I the act e^peureif to t?e h nine wanton one ? rder. Where the troojis then stood, a moh pre dine no Thirteenth street, at aboui 9 o'cloel ards the Cathedral, approached them with a deutlv hostile intention. Tney were eonipose 1 ipally of firemen. General Cadwallader o ed them to disperse, which command not heir yed, he read the riot act and ordered a chars bayonets. This had the desired eilect, and tf mentnof the threatened storm scattered in evei ction. Fifteen men had been arrested at ninitted to the arsenal for riotous conduct, tw admin had bottles of inflammable fluid in the kets; being either spirits of turpentine or can e." He assured ine that all was ijuiet in Kei ftoa, a large military force betBg MlfjoBt re, and a numerous detachment of I'nite tea troops, front Fort Mifllin, being ii| no sion of the Frankfort arsenal, which ha n threatened by the Irish. It now being net : o'clock, and Kensington being about ihre es away, there being, moreover, noconveyanr by the feet, and nobody guard Imtmy lead penci included that Kensington could take care of i for the night. I stopped into several houses o way to my hotel, and found the universal optt to be, that the quiet of the city was now si e ; that ihe energetic measures which had bee pted by the < Governor, now chief in commant city being under martial law, had eflectuall ed for the time nil disposition for turbulence, 'hree or four of the funerals of those who hav en victims to the riots took place to day, but n ade or stir was made with them, it being cor red imprudent to heighten the terrible interei i ceremony which had already in it too muc iangerous excitement, by an ostentatious svtt vy, which would he a public and direct accusa i of tbe peri>etrstors and an incitement to retnl m.

Busine--, j l"' which has been almost entirely suspended within ' pa| J the last four days, is now by decrees resumed ; and c we may hope, if the present quiet last throughout ' the day and night, that the tumult and outbreak v<l will be at nn end. The Irish are completely sub- At l" clued for the time, ami 1 have fancied, as they have " gone along the street with downcast and evasive ['* L" eyes, that they were endeavoring, but with a very Ko ' had grace, to pass for Native Americans. hu '' I stood in front of the unfortunate edifice ol St. ^ ~~ Augustine's again this morning, and obseivt-d some r' Irishmen as they passed. Some would pause, look ,,,, ,s at it for a moment, and then walk on, with coinpressed li|?s, clenched fists, and a threatening shake 'j n of their heads; others merely cast a stdlen glance ^ askance, and contented themselves with a muttered j.,. >' execration. With three of the temples of their is | l* revered religion despoiled, tiieir priests insulted, re| e and themselves burnt front their homes, they evi- Mt r dently feel that they have a deep and dieadliil venr geauce to achieve. The Americans, too, with the l) v e recollection of the original outrageous interference '' with their dearest rights while assembled peaceably '( together, and tin* murderous slaughter of tln-ir |ari ' brethren in tlie streets, feel that their score ol sat- .)(r c isfaction is but hall accomplished. These elements j,.j| V of outrage still exist in the bosoms of the violent tioi I" and ill-advised of either party, smouldering hut not dint dead. An imprudent relaxation from the present 01 e state ol military vigilance might inflame them all jl?' *} anew, and end in a scene of horror to which the jT* _ former would be inaignilicant. Uut as 1 said before, ulu y in my letter of this morning, the chances are in n?i s favor of order and quiet, because it is the intention *ni of the authorities to maintain their present military c.hi '* force, or rather the force of last night; but if that foil ?> should be reduced, and u degree of vigilance re- * ,l laxed, the condition of things would be materially ,s'" e altered. 9" *, I have been in all ouarters of the city.

It was stateo mm with great confidence, odcc, that the rioters had Mr K taken possession of the United Slates Arsenal, near of " h'raiiklo d, but tins was not true. At suii-dowu, all 1 t was qtuet in the nty. A few demonstrations had '"r y been made in front of one or two churchi s, hut the ??' ? positive assurances of the military officers, that Iln l>- they would shoot dowp any man who should at- j? y tempt to renew ilie crimes of the evening previous, t>*r n served to keep order. Wetnirt that tranquillity is tin i. restored?if so, we doubt not that it will be perma- ni( d neat. When we feel that such is the case, indeed, u we bhall endeavor to lookback upon the events ci v " the week ; and by showing some of the causes that I' operated to produce the deplorable state which dt-<- ,f *i graced our city and county, we shall aid to ere. t : !

In Kensington, tlie excitement was by no means tB' " so high. A lew flags were seen flying, and placards j'.' were posted upon ? number of doors, in order to 0l, n" designate the names and character of the inmates a;, id We have heard ot a number of sad cnses of dis- ?J ? tress and panic among poor Irish families. They in s have been compelled to fly from their places of inl d abode; and in mnny cases without knowing " where to obtain shelter and safety. The reports are f,r| * contradicted, of outrage s by the Irish at Richmond. ( f We saw a gentleman yesterday, who came down ,lt I. f.om N'orristown, who stated that much ulann was ,j j ' felt by the Irish at various points along the rond, ev. " lest they should be attacked, by being eonfounded I I with those who committed the first assault upon the ma Native Americans. The women especially were <> II terrified. No discharges of muskets during the day. *> Svrt.il pi irons w ere looking lor money among the jj" y ruins ol the house* and those of St. Michael's th.
