THE NEW YORK HERALD. v?i. no. 198?wiioi* w?8. NEW YORK, THURSDAY MORNING, JULY 18, 1844. WwT,rotMtt" THE ILLUSTRATED WEEKLY HERALD. A FOURTH EDITION REQUIRED ! Wonderful Success of Newspaper Literature. - Monday, we published a third edition of many thousands of the Illustrated Weekly Herald, con taining an account of the riots in Philadelphia. We have now printed a fourth edition oi just as many thousands, to supply the demand for the " Great Western," and packets yet to sail. The manner in which this illustrated Weekly Herald has been received by the public has asto nis ed even us, who were long since prepared to be astonished at nothing. Many attempts have been heretefore made to establish pictorial papers in this city, but from their invariable want of suc cess, the poverty of the effort, want of talent and genius in managing it, it was supposed that such a thing could not be made to succeed here. We have shown, however, that such a paper, if proper ly got up, is certain of receiving ample patronage and support. One of the most curious results of the popularity of this paper has been, thata great proportion of the recent sales have been amongst the Irish?the most pious and determined followers of Bishop Hughes, who bought the beautiful illustrated Herald in the very face of his bull of excommunication against all who would touch or look at the Herald. We mean to continue at proper intervals, and as occasion may require, the publication of Illus'rated Weekly Heralds. We have four or five artists al most constantly in. our employment; and we are prepared to give graphic illustrations of the pro gress of society, and all important events in the most expeditious, accurate, and graphic style. As soon as the excitement of these riots is over, we shall enter on the work of illustrating the manner in which the two great parties are conducting the Presidential contest, by means of engravings, of the beauty and excellence of which no one can form any conception until they are published.

[Correspondence of the Herald ] Washington, Tuesday, July 16, 1844. The Federal City?Moral, Social and Political Ad vantage t of Tatteful Public Building*?Neglect j of the latt Session of Congress?Project* of Hon. Zndok Pratt?Bureau of Statistics? War and Navy Buildings?List of Patents for General Circulation?National Monument to Washington, 4-c. te la the general dearth of news, incidents, rumors, speculations, and peculations, at head quarters, we have thought it would not be unworthy your extensively circulated paper to make a draft upon the journal of the last session of the House oi Re presentatives relative to its action upon appropria tions proposed for the Federal metropolis. The seat of the national government, among I civilized countries, is properly sought to be made, | by the national authorities, the exponent of the morals of the people?of their taste and liberality in architecture, benevolent institutions, and the tine arts, and of their general character as a com petent and munificent sovereignty. The people of the United StateB, in common with the citizens of other enlightened and refined nations, are justly proud of their Federal Capitol?of its tasteful and classic public edifices?of the beauty and skill ex hibited, and the munificence apparent, in the adornments of the public ways, gardens and build ings. These are matters of honest and commend able pride?a pride which, entertained in common among all the citizens of an extended empire, tends most happily to consolidate the affections of the people in the integrity and preservation of the Union. Again, the encouragement of the princi ples of beauty and taste in the public edifices and enclosures?of the works of science and of art in ihe administration of the government?and of the labors and researches ot learned and patriotic men?contribute to the immediate dissemination, to the interior and extremities of the country, ot the same distinctive evidences of refinement, im provement, and advancement. But, enough of exordium. The House of Representatives at the last ses sion, from erroneous conceptions ot economy and I retrenchment, were most wilfully negligent of pro fed moting the improvement and beauty of the eral city, and their own convenience and com fort while resident within it as dispensers of the laws of the land. A factitious and fictitious spirit of prejudice and jealousy seemed to be predomi nant with the dominant majority. Among the in dividual exceptions to the general hostility, the people of Washington and the country will com mend the national spirit of Hon. Z. Pratt, Chair man of the House Committee on Public Buildings and Grounds. His numerous reports on subjects embraced within the purview of niB appointment, as papers of statistical information merely, are worthy of a general circulation through the coun try. Among these reports, are included? 1st. A report setting forth the advantages of a Bureau of | Statistics and Commerce in connection with the Trea sury Department, with a resolution rt commending said j Bureau The proposition was finally adopted by direct ingthe transfer of three clerks from the General Land Office to the details of trade, finances, currency, and com- | merce. 2 J. A report recommending the conjunction of the War I and Navy buildings by a central addition, accoiding tu the plan of Robert Mills, Esq., late public architect, and the erection of a wing to the I'-tent Office, in furtherance | of the original desigu. Not agreed to. 8d. A report and resolution authorizing the appropria tion from the Patent fund of $10,000 for " the purchase of an ample collection of scientific and other necessary books, to provide for the publication and distribution ol the descriptions and drawings of the inventions lor which patents have been granted ; also, for other provisions ne cessary to give greater efficiency to the oflfce and a more perfect arrangement ef the models and drawings, within the extent of the fund arising from patents ; and that the committee report by bill or otherwise." Not accom plished, we believe. A late writer in the Intelligencer, in remarking | upon this proposition, says: " The artizans and mechanics of the United States will be pleased to learn that the Hon. Xadok Pratt, a practical ] mechanic, has introduced a resolution in the House ol Representatives providing for the publication and engra ving of all inventions patented in the Patent Office at Washington, which now amount to thirteen thousand live hundred and twenty-three ; and that it is his intention to have copies of these works distributed, <U the ciepense of the offue, throughout every town in the United States, so that the numerous classes of our citizens whose genius or talent may lead them to the discovery of new inventions, may know and have constantly at hand a complete com pend and view of all the models and draughts of the ma chines for which patents have been issued since the foun dation of the Government. , " This project is highly meritorious and business-like ; and particularly so, when it is known to be the object also of Mr. Pratt to appropriate out of the patent fund which is now about $100,900, with an annual yield ol $10,000, a sufficient sum to purchase and distribute in the same manner a collection of scientific and other necessary books, to be at the disposal and use of the citizens of each town and hamlet. It is gratifying to perceive that there is one man at least in our Congress to devote a part ol his mind and time to bis brother mechanics, and to the things that are truly useful, instead of following in the general business of President making and the manufac turing of public opinion " 4lh. A report and plan for a National Monument to Washington, in the form of a circular temple, 131) feet high, of successive stories supported by columns of dif ferent orders, and to be devoted as a repository for b ists and statues of distinguished men, national paintings, and other works of art The $40,000 in the hands of the trus tees from public subscriptions to be appropriated in aid ol the work. Nothing done ftth. A report recommending the enclosure of 83 acres of the naked wall of ISO, in front of the capital, west?and the planting therein of trees?the laying out of walks? the erection of fountains on either side, and of the afore said Nutional Monument in the centre?the square to In called Monument Park?the costs of the work to be paid from the sales of public lots within the city, thus avoiding the abstraction of a single dollar from the Treasury. But this laudable and beautiful project of improvement wa? rejected by the House as a work of fancy unworthy a de liberate " sober second thought." 6th. A report recommending from the different F.xecu tive departments periodical returns of public expenditures and public property in detail. Adopted. 7tn. A proposition to appropiiote $10,000 to paint the dingy capital. Rejected. It will require $30,000 two years hence. 3th A motion to appropriate $30,000 to the President's House and Grounds. Rejected. The next Piesident can not be decently installed under less than $40,000. 9th A resolution directing the removal ot the ugly shantee which encloses Greenough's statue of Washing ton, an i the erection of an iron railing around the base oi | said statue. Rejected. Also, the bill from the Senate for the improvement of the Pennsylvania Avenue, and every oiher substitute for the same, even the paltry appropriation proposed of $500 to aid in watering said street. Without contending for the immediate adoption of these several propositions of improvement, we do contend that, without detriment to the public economy, they would have contributed materially to the prosperity of the National Capital and the business of the Government?to the convenience, comlort, pleasure and health of citizens, memberi of Congress and strangers?to the insurance of re spect from foreign nations, and of self-respect and pride among the whole people as the sovereign proprietors of the Government estates, and to the advancement of the best conservative interests ol the Capital of the Republic and the Republic at large. The beautiful public edifices erected during the Presidency of Mr Van Buren will immortalize his administration. To any further extension or im provement of such buildings at Washington the members from the west are generally opposed ; bui the reasons of the signal rejection of tfie claims ol the federal city by the last House ol Representa tives are lew and simple. The ultra whig citizens regarded the House as locoioco destructives; they looked upon the democratic majority as a majority of Jacobins. In public and private they were thus denounced. Revenge, therefore, was one incentive to the withdrawal of city appropriations Re trenchment was another. Here retrenchment might be without touching the pockets of a single constituent of any member upon the floor Retrenchment was expected by the country, and lomethintr had to he done. The saving of a few thou sands would be doing something ; and they were sa ved by withholding appropriations Irom the psblic grounds and edifices of Washington?appropriations which the conveniences of the administrative de partments, not less than the health, the adornment, and advancement of the city, imperiously demand. They will have to be met, and the postponement will not work to an abatement of the expenditures required. Then the #5(10,000, in British gold, surrendered in trusi by the late Mr. Smithson of England, to he expended in the erection, establishment, and sup port of a National Institution of Education and Science at Washington, which were invested in tile Slate bonds ot Arkansas, and which bond* have been to a great amount sacrificed ill the stock market at 40 per cent discount?this #500,000, thus wasted, remains unprovided for, and the purpose of the donor disregarded. In this dilemma, the nu cleus of the National Institute now in exisi<nce, and supported chiefly through private enterprise, has given notice of an appeal to private charity in default ot public integrity. We have spoken The President when last heard from? " Had gone to the lake of the Dismal Swamp With hi* bride 10 loving and true, Where all nigh', long by their Are-fly lamp, He paddlea her white canoe." The Dismal Swamp is celebrated for the abun dance and luxuriance of its mistletoe. It is sup posed that a quantity will be taken thence by the President to the homestead at Williamsburgh, and hung up in the hall after the fashion of the olden time, when the whole family being collected, they will circle round and under the parasitic ever green. " Oh ! the mistletoe bough." After which, the President will be required to] kiss the late Alias Gardiner. Bob. Rochester. [Correspondence of the Herald.] Rochester, July 1,1814. The Great Whig Gathering?Buffoonery and Coon cry in Extatirt?Practical Demagoguitm?Anti Texas?Prohibitory Tariff's?Governor Seward, and other Smalt and Large Potatoes. The annals of electioneering warfare furnish no example equal to the great Whig guthering exhibit ed in this city on Saturday last. The hard cider revelries of 1840 were completely thrown into the shade ; and if the spirit of old anti-masonic Mon roe animates every other section of the State, sure enough the people "are risin' for Harry Clay and Frelinghuysen." For a month past, the whole county haa been raked and scraped, and every coon poked out of his hole to swell the exhibition. Old and young, blind and halt, men and maidens, little girls and less boys, white coans and black, blue coons and grey?all, all, were there, in one grand and imposing mass, staggering and stultify ing the poor locos, and making each in hia indivi dual capacity look like "death upon the pale horse." Mr Dawson, the editor of the Clay Bugle, was high-priest, master of ceremonies, and every tiling else upon the occasion. It was truly a dramatic affair; but whether it will turir out comedy or 'ragedv, 1 must let the month ol November untold. He (Mr. D ) boasts of 15,000 persons, alias Whigs, being present; but that for him is a small mutter, seeing there are only about 6000 voters oi that kid ney in the wholecountry. But 1 hasten to describe, if description be possible, the exhibition itself. About ten o'clock, A. M., the cortege began to arrive. The rendezvous was on Main sireet, asyou enter the city from the East. Every town, and Clay Club in the county, together with the differ ent wards were represented by delegation They drove up in vehicles of various kinds, headed by a of their political creed. Stsge3 were erected on wagons, drawn by six horses, and each trade and occupation represented, by a number of men appa rently employed at there every day toil. There were printers, and type founders, coopers, carpen ters, and blacksmiths, shoe makers and last ma kers, boat builders, and in fine every sort of Home industry, but speculators, were typified in imposing parade. When the muBter was complete, the mar shals arranged the order of the march, and about eleven o'clock, all started, the nume rous bands striking up in one harmonious blast, the enlivening tune of " Old Dan Tuck er," to which one of the most spirit stirring of the Clay melodies is set. Slowly, with all the pomp and circumstance becoming so magnificent a spectacle, the cortege moved along ; traversing all the princi ple streets of the city. When the bands ceased playing, the Glee Clubs would strike up, in an ago ny of enthuziasm, some appropriate melody, to a still more appropriate tune, such as " That Same Old Coon," "Jump Jim Crow," and "Jim Along Josey." As each trade passed the. nflioe of the " Clay Bugle," a shout was raised as a token of re spect to the presiding genius of the festival. George Dawson, Esq , he being the originator of this new variety of electioneering clap trup. This, of course, wasbut giving to Caesar Caesar's due. After having got the order of procession arranged to his mind and tairly under way, Mr. D. himself took his station at the head of the printers and printers devils of bis of fice, and sleeves rolled up,commenced the process of getting out a number of the "Clay Bugle, contain ing a full, true, and particular account of this gala Jay in old Monroe. He was inspired by the great occasion, and composed and set up in type, at one and the same time, the vibrations of his brain.? (By the way, i need inform you, Mr. Editor, that according to u new discovery in mental philosophy, thought is but a vibration ot that organ.) Well, after showing the gaping multitude all that was to be seen,the actors in this political drama and new speciegol electioneering buffoonery, bent their steps to Washington Square to hold the pow-wow that was to close the play. Ex Governor Seward and John A. Collier,were the chosen orators of the day. and the foimer led off. Mr. Seward ooeses -es (or rather I ought to say now, possessed) con siderable reputation as a speaker in this latitude.? On several small occasions, and at the agricultural fair last year, he had made rather pretty speeches He delivered himself with ease and grace ; and although his efforts require hut a happy collocation of words, hi ill he was esteemed an orator, head and shoulders above the common run. All expected a treat, and accordiugly went prepared. But I assure you, sir, all, yes all, were sadly, most sadly disappointed The locos were delighted, and the whigs put on laces only equalled >n length by the one exhibited by Dr. Duncan in the House of Representatives, as descriptive ol those of ihe whig leaders on hearing of the nomi nation of Polk, ft was clearly seen thai all looked upon the speech as a devilish poor affair. One Irishman, in my hearing said; "by Jusus, its a faux paux entirely." Another man remarked?"After all, Bennett was right?he is small potatoes." Mr. S commenced by classifying he Presiden tial candidates before ine people for their suffrages, and speaking to their several merits, he soft soaped the abolitionist and lauded Mr. Birney to the skies ?he cracked a stale joke at the expense of Mr. Tyler, and passed Mr. Polk with a very brief notice indeed. It was best, he thought, to say little about men, but proceed to measures; so he attacked the measures, State and national, obliquely defending his own policy of running the State in debt, so that her stock was nearly unsaleable in the market, and going it strong for internal improvements on the high pressure system. He threw out a lew very original ideas,when on this subject, in regard to emigrants. They were a new kind of soft soap, but I cannot take ttmeat present to go too far into de tail. He then touched on home industry?shunned the mention of a National Bunk, and denounced the Texas Annexation; but on each und all of the subjects which came under his review, he uttered nothing new, little profitable, and not a solitary idea worthy of lemembrance. He spoke as if his heart w;w not in the wotk. He was stiff in manner, neurile in matter, deficient in fluency, and total ly devoid of earnestness. We have scop-a ol men here, on both sides, who could have distanced him. After lie had exhausted himself, and tired his hearers, Mr. John A Collier followed him. He confined himself chiefly to a defence of Mr. He ward and the Whig State Policy, as to internal inprovements?what they had done, and what they would do?and to the Texas question, which he, of course, went dead against, in Hny shape They think they are making capital out of this at the North, but tor every 5 per cent they make here, hey are losing 50 at the south, and 25 at the west; for the people of the West, connect in some, sort ol sympathetic bond, Texus and Oregon, an 1 the wh gs in Congress opposed all action on both ques tions. The Hon. Mr. Hardin, of Illinois, Dr. Bacon and Mr. Thayer, of New York, fdlowed in order, and wound up the speeches, and the few that remained seemed heartily glad when the in fliction was over. Without seeking to exaggerate, or set down aught in malice, this part of the busi ness was exceedingly dull and most unprofitable. During the whole two hours Gov. Heward spoke, not a cheer was raised to give point to his wit, or force to his argument. In the evening some 300 got together in the Clny temple, (it will hold a thousand to fifteen hundred) and Mr. Somebody from New York finished the -xercises of the day. He was fluent enough, but it was words, words, words, and nothing but words. He eulogized Mr. Van Buren, and abusr-d (he locos tor not nominating him. No doubt he had a per sonal feeling in the matter, as he, like hundreds of other stump orators, had lost most of his stock in trade thereby. It is, after all, amusing enough, to hear *' them there fellows" prai-ing the man on whom they have been heaping abuse, most foul and unmitigated, for ten long years. Tins isa kind of hypocricy which would shame Old Nick him self. I have thus, Mr. Editor, given you briefly a faith ful chronicle of this grand and imposing whig ma nifestation. It wi'l form n curious feature in the history of the times, from the, new elements intro daced into the election, and for which George Dawson, Esq., of the "Cluv Bugle," will un doubtedly be immortalized. To his daring genius, the whiea will owe their success, if in the north and east, 44 Home industry," so pi act ically exem plified, prove as successful as coonskins and log cabins did in 1340. It is bringing the tariff question in a tangible shape before the face and eyes of the people. It is difficult to make them, by long abstruse arguments, understand this complicated issue, but in such exhi bitions they may be sung into the belief that the locotocog Jestre to destroy c II 44 Home Industry" by their tarifl doctrines. We live in a wondrous age, and who can deny the fact, that we are won derfully wise in our day and generation. Hurrali tor whig electioneering. There is nothing after all like humbug. Vour's, Quasimodo. Mob Spirit in Canada.?Notwithstanding the holy horror of the Canadians at the 44 dreadful state of society in this Republic," their own beautiful provinces are in no better, if in so good a condi-' tion. We take from the Montreal Herald, the most violent of the provincial press against this country, the following particulars of the mob spirit that seems to reign in the capital of Canada :| [Krom the Montreal Herald of July 16] On Friday,?the celebrated 12th July,?we are told that the city was honored with the presence of a gieat many Irish laborers Iroin the quarries and otnerworks in the neighborhood, who had come into assist in preventing an Orange Procession, ot which, for the first time since the foundation of this city, there had been 6ome rumor, but it was confined chiefly to those who are opposed to such demon strations. These people seemed to have forgotten that a stringent law had been lately passed prohibit ing party processions of every kind, and that, con sequently, no Orange Ptocession was at all likely to take place, even it such a procession had ever taken place before. The persons who came into town to prevent it by striking, orjierhaps murdering, those who were to form a part of it, having no opportuni ty of venting their fierce passions on Orangemen, looked out during the day for others. Some of them, accordingly, seeing a lady coming into town in her carriage with a bouquet in which among other flowers there happened to be two or three yellow lilies, valianily stopped her horse, and ordered her in a threatening tone to destroy the bouquet. The lady being the wife of an American gentleman, and an American hers-.lf, could not comprehend what had raised the fury of the sav age, hut being terrified at his violence, she threw the bouquet to him and called for help. Several gentlemen ran to'-'er assistance, and the villain dis appeared. Thit took place in the tirttlt of the city of Montreal, the Capital of Canada, in the forenoon Another lady, we are told, whose shawl was bor dered with figures of different bright colors, and among the rest yellow, was insulted twice by ruf fians who stopped her on the streets of the same well ordered capital, the residence of a Governor General, itnd enjoying the protection of? what-do vou-call-it?a police force. In the evening, a lew friends assembled at a respectable tavern in the Main Street, Quebec Suburbs, to dine, and were quietly enjoying themselves, when the nouse was assailed, about ten o'clock, by a large body of men, apparently laborers, to the number of 200, and the windows broken in by volleys of stones We are told that about 200 more were scattered in knots, here and there, in the vicinity of the tavern, but we have not heard that any person was hurt, nor that any resistance was offered. About the same hour the house of J. Dier, innkeeper, Griffin town (the gentlemun who was nearly murdered by the Irishmen from the Canal at the last election), was attacked by a crowd of ruffiians, the win dows and window sashes were broken in pieces, and other damage done. The party had hovered about the neighborhood for some time, and on three whistles being given, the attack commenced with stonps, many of which weighed from two to three pounds. A stonebreaker's hammer was also thrown in. After breaking all the windows, the mob retired, but being met by some one in a ca leche, whom they seemed to obey, they returned, and gave another volley. Soon after, the Mayor arrived, with what used to be the police, and the villa ns ran off". Mr. Dier is one of the most inof fensive of individuals; he never was, nor is he now an Orangeman; neither had he?us has been cir culated by those interested?any orange lilies, or other orange flowers, in his window during the day. On the wharf, a temperance meeting was held in the evening of the same day, at which Dougnll and Wadsworth spoke. While the latter was allu ding to the extraordinary change for the better which the temperance reformation had produced here, and more especially in Ireland, and amongst Irish emigrants, a disposition to create disturb ance was manifested by individuals among the audience, who uttered various cries, and raised a scuffling in the crowd. Some of the police Imp pening to be on the spot, no injuries were received No provocation in any one of these instances was given, none dreamed of, but it would seem that the villains had regularly banded themselves together, as they appeared to act in well drilled concert, at the attacks which weie made in the evening. To what a state of things have we not come 1 Here we have breaches of the peace, and unmanly in sults to ladies offered in open day, and on the nub tic streets, on accountofOrangeism?a thing which was never heard of in Montreal until it was thrown into the city at the last election; nay, the term was never mentioned at all until it was first used at Mr. Drummond's meetings, to create bitterness and hatred against Mr. Molson's supporters, who were all denominated Orangemen. Since, then, all the suppnriers of the Governor General in Montreal have been held up as Orangemen to the hatred of those Roman Catholic Irishmen whosu|> port the Ex-Ministry. The RomanCatholic French Canadians are decidedly to be exculpated from all participation in this conduct. They and their Ifri lish fellow-subjects have lived together in perfect harmony and peace as regards religion. They have had their political differences, and they have car ried them to as grent a height as political parties well can carry them, hut their animosities have never been embittered by religious feeling Roman Catholic and Protestant lived in society without ever thinking oi enquiring the religious belief of his neighbor, and without heeding what church he went to. But strangers temporarily in our city, by hooting out Orangemen and Ornngeisin, have suc ceeded in exciting the passions of those who Imve listened to them, and in urging them on to commit assaults on the peaceful citizens of Montreal. We regret to learn that Mrs. Spooner, who had her leg smashed, and was otherwise bruised by the falling of the scaffold in (Jriftlntown last week, died on Friday evening, the second day after the accident. We are told that the scaffolding was totally insufficient, even if the enemies of or inge liilies had not driven so many ladies upon It. TIip matter ought to be Investigated by a Coroner's Jnry. The detestable spirit of Orangeism and Ribhandism ought to bo at once hnaished whence it came. We have, God knows, enough of troubles in Montreal, without getting thin also thrust upon as. n Coroner's Jury be summoned immediately, in order that the whole truth may bo elicited. [From Buffalo Advertiser, July IS.] The reported riot nt Drutnmondsville turned out, as we su posed, nothing serious A party of Orange men from Toronto, accompanied by their wives, repaired to the Falls to celebrate the anniversary of the Battle of the Boyne. On their arrival at Queenston, they were requested by those having charge of the railroad, to take ofl'iheir bailees,with which request they complied. But notwithstand ing, they* were assailed on their way with oppro brious epithets by some of the Catholic Irish, who hud assembled in anticipation of a row, nnd some brickbats were thrown at the cars This wns the extent of the riot that rumor so magnified. There was no fight, and no interposition of the authori ties was requisite to prevent anv farther lnfruction of the peace than we have mentioned. N. E.

Paterson. [Correspondence of the Herald.) Patkrson, July 15, 1844. Strike for IVagtl. The table cloth weavers ol Patenson held u meet ing on Saturday last, when it was unanimously resolved to send deputations to the various manu facturers of those goods to solicite them for an ad vance of wages, equal to the reductions that had been made upon them the past two years, which amounted to 20 per cent, and which the operatives think themselves entitled to uccording to the present scale paid in Philadelphia and New York. The deputations waited upon the respective manufac turers, when Messrs. Turtuns and Mr. Parker re fused to pay any advance, and the Messrs. Pres. , tons at once complied with the wishes of the meet ing, and are now encouraging the advanced list The weavers belonging to the two other establish ments have struck work. The weavers at all those factories are men who have come from England to better their condition. They are men whoiutheir employerswillgire good | characters as being good workmen, sober, steady, and industrious. The weavers hope that these steps which they have taken, will have their proper in fluence upon any that would wish to difier with them, and thut all mechanics will see the necessity of maintaining a remunerating lis! of wages iu this country, which, by a well regulated self-action, will keep out from among us the pauper labor of Englund, believing at the same time, that their la bor is their capitol, and they have a right to carry it to the best market. Nothing is more apparent than the fact that this will be a great manufacturing country?that a great change has already taken place in the manufactur ing business of this new world,which is to growin a fu|l, deep stream, flowing onward to wealth to all within its reach. This new era has commenced, and the keen, calculating manufacturer's preparing fora great business Why not the operative hand loom weaver have his share allowed him, with out being compelled to resort to measures which he deprecates and abhors.

This is a most useful work, particularly to a stran ger or young person. It possesses a vast amount of information, and is written in a plain but beautiful style. Commerce ok the Prairies, or the Journal of a Santa Fe Trader,during eight expeditions across the great Western Prairies, and a residence of nearly nine years in Northern Mexico?Illustrated with Maps and Engravings; by Josiah Gregg: in ?wo vols. New York?Henry G. Langley, S Astor House.?No work has recently appeared among us which has so directly addressed itself to the wants and to the curiosity of the public. The late disturbances between Mexico and this country, and the prospect of an interruption of our commercial relations with each other, make all feel more or less interested in knowing the importance and the influence of that commerce; and although our overland trade with Mexico has been exceedingly prosperous tor some twenty years, and almostevery capitalist who has embarked in it has made a for tune, yet there has been no means of procuring in formation respecting the condition, difficulties and rewards of that trade mi il now, except by direct Communication with die traders themselves. No iir mjut whatev r at all adeipiate has ever before been Ida-lied, nur bus any thing been written nl it, to the best of our know ledge, save occa si letters from the traders themselves to their fri , which have sometimes been published in ol ire western papers and thence coined perhaps in <>ur Eastern journals. It is to this deficiency ol reliable information that is to be attributed the prevailing ignorance and indifference umong oui capitalists about the prospects of the Santa Fe Trade; for it is safe to say that there are few op portunities now offering for the rapid realization of a fortune equal to that wluqh this trade presents, provided commercial intercourse he not again threatened with suspension und our friendly rela tions with Mexico give promise of continuance At this time, as we before remarked, the appear ance of Mr. Gregg's book seems particularly oppor tune, for it supplies the information which is s*> much required. This gentleman's means of in forming himself of the matters about which he writes have been far more ample than those pos sessed by any living writer, and the style and man ner of the work, we feel convinced, will commend his statements at once to the confidence of the public. As one may readily infer trom the kind ol life Mr. Gregg appears to have led during the eight or ten years of his trading life, his nuirulive is luli of adventure of every kind, and of the most enter taining sketches of life and manners. This narra tive is the more interesting as it is made to embrace much valuable historical matterand statistics illus trative of the early history and growth of the Hants Fe trade. Mr. Gregg's style is easy and direct, but withou any pretension. He owns that he tins no vocation lor book-making, but has merely striven to ptecenl the most important results of his very rare experi ence in a readable shape and with sufficient dis tinctness to make them be appreciated.

Hoboken.?Otto Mottv's Pcrkobmances ? It appears lliat some dissatisfaction prevailed relative to Otto Motty's standing upon two horses, a leg on each, and driving them the distance of a mile within a short space ot time, two minutes and ten seconds, which he had a shott time since perform ed over the Beacon Course. Jn consequence i f this dissatisfaction thiscelebrated equestrian under took to repeat the task on an open road, and yes terday it came off near to Mr ferry's hotel, Hobo ken. The ground was Irom this spot to Beigrn Hill and ba^t About live o'clock he made ins appearance on the ground, and performed the leHt in most ex-client style without Btop. stumble or fall, and came home amidst considerable applause. Previous to the iorfgoiog l^ut, this truly wonder ful perlormer went through some ot his oilier per formances, which, as we have so recently described them, we need not now repeat f^Mbsequenily lm went through other perlormances ot a similar de scription, on the green in Iront ot the house, many ot which were quite novel and truly astonishing and must be witnessed to be tally credited; for in stance, lie stood out Irom u perpendicular revok ing pole, which hud been erected lor the purpose, fastened by one leg, and took between hi? teeth two 06 lbs. weights, fastened together by a hand kerchief, and two Others, one in each hand, and remained with them in this position lor several seconds. There were several other teats performed of an equally striking and novel character, which at once astonished (alarmed the ladies particularly) ilmse present, but they were all received Willi con siderable applause. Mr. Perry appears to be taking every pains in affording his visiters amusement ot a lighter de scription, as well as the best ot the more solid comforts ol life. The.

Boston Light Infantry.?A toast reflecting on the hospitality extended towards the Boston Light Infantry during tln-ir sojourn in this city, was re | plied to in the Pltheia* of yesterday, and a satis tactory reason give n lor the non-attention shown ihem, but that apology will not excuse treatment they received a the Navy Yard, at Brooklyn, and at Governor's Island. At ihe first mentioned place, after marching some two or three miles under a broiling sun, 1 lie officers of " B. L. 1 " were iuvi ted to visit the Lyceum, when a drop of water would rather have been received than that cosily invitation. As it was, someot the corps lortun.ite |y espied a pump near by, at which they slaked their burning llnrst; that is all they received. 1 Ins will do for hospitality number ?:ie. Now tor num ber two. They were invited to vioit Governor's 1 Island, but no means ol conveyance were sfloidrd them lor so doing. A gentle man, a late officer ot the Light Guard, and a hearty, liberal,good fellow, generously chartered a Steamboat (torn Ins ow n private purse, and conveyed them to the Island On their arrival, one of ihe members of 'he "B L.
