JAMES GORDON BENNETT, PaoraiEToa or the Hkrai.d Establishment, Northwest corner of Fulton and Nassau streets ANOTHER ILLUSTRATED WEEKLY HERALD! SFXsENDXD ENGRAVINGS. ILLUSTRATIVE OF TUE Early Life of the Presidential Candidates. We shall publish another illustrated Weekly Herald on Saturday morning, containing some beautiful engravings, illustrative of the early life of the Presidential candidates now before the country for their suffrages next November. The artists are now very busily engaged on them. One of these engravings will represent that well known scene in the life of Mr. Clay when he went on horseback with his mother's grist to the mill. This is very beautifully designed and will be well executed. It will present a most impressive example to the youth of this country, of the truth that talent, ge nius and energy, well directed, can rise from the very humblest rank in life to the great and elevated position which Mr. Clay now occupies before the people of this country. Another engraving will represent a scene in the early life of Mr. Polk, who is a native of North Carolina, and is represented when a boy as chop ping wood for his mother, and making himself useful in an equally humble capacity as that in which Mr. Clay was engaged. This is also another illustrious example of the peculiar character of the institutions and society of the United States, show ing how mind can tise from the lowest condition in the social scale to the very highest; and that there is nothing to prevent the very newsboy who sells this paper through the streets, if he choose to conduct himself with virtue and energy, and pro priety, from becoming the chief magistrate of this great nation?higher than the kings and emperors of the old world. This Weekly Herald will also contain oiher illustrations, which will be seen on the day of publication. We intend, now that the Presidential contest has fairly set in, aud all the local excitements and riots have ceased, to proceed and illustrate all the various important incidents in the lives of the two candidates. We shall also give graphic and amu sing sketches, illustrative of the manner in which both parties conduct the canvass. TO SXiaRANTS, AND OTHERS MAKING REMITTANCES TO ENGLAND, SCOTLAND, AND IRELAND.

JAMES H. SUYDAM. J15 ltaw4w to Navy Agent. Buffalo. [Correspondence of the Herald ] Buffalo, July 25,1844. Pleasure Excursion to the Upper Lakes. I have anxiously expected to see some account given in your paper ol the "Pleasure Excursion to the Upper Lakes," on board the steamer Wiskon san, Captain Randall, as advertised previous to the 1st of July instant. It was rumored on board, and generally believed, that you had a reporter there ; and many were the inquiries concerning him. But no one knew him, or could point liirn out. The (assengers pretty generally fixed upon a person? for what reason I know not?as the reporter. The gentleman waB quite overwhelmed with the atten lion and civilities shown him, and appeared to be ignorant of the cause. He bore up manfully, how ever, against so many besetting evils, (courtesy sometimes is an evil,) until the dinner of the se cond day, when, finding so many waiters surround ing his seat at table, each with a bottle of wine, a tumbler, and a gentleman's card, all of which be ing so enveloped in mystery, and the thought, pro bably, of being obliged to reciprocate all of those cards, his fortitude gave way, and he rose up, as 1 thought, to make a speech and return thanks. As he stood there for a moment, casting his eyes up the table, then down the table, with so many bot tles, and tumblers, and waiters about him, he forcibly reminded me of the glass-blower at the American Museum, surrounded with glass, and a crowd of spectators behind him. Every knife and fork and tongue was as still as death. He spoke? "Ladies and gentlemen," said he, "I am neither Polk nor Dallas, Clay nor Frelinghuysen, Tyler nor John Jones?now, I would like to know who I am in your imaginations 1" A gentleman replied from the head ot the table?"A reporter lor the New York Herald." The stranger looked amazed for a moment, and then said?"No, gentlemen, 1 um no reporter?would to God that 1 was, if such is the attention they receive." .Since the s.ranger turned out to be no reporter at all, and irom your silence on the subject concluding you had none on board, 1 will endeavor to give you some account of it with my own feeble pen. Those who were fortunate enough to escape from the cares and toils of busiueHS, leaving the " ledg er" and "bank notices" to be attended to by ju nior partners and head clerks, and embark on tins voyage of pleasure, enjoyed a treat that can never possibly fall to their lot again. A company so pro miscuous, yet so unanimous?so many strangers to each other, yet all so harmoniously mingling to gether, has seldom it ever met on board of one ves sel. It was a bright example, even for a congrega tion of christians. The steamer Wiskonsan is a fine sea craft, infe rior to nothing that floats on the Atlantic, and tar superior to uny boat on the northern or western lakes. She is entirely new, and finished in the beautiful style of the Knickerbocker on the North Kiver. Her state rooms are spacious and airy, ths saloons elegantly furnished, and a fine toned piano forte, manufactured expressly for this steam er, attracts mnch attention Irorn the lovers of sweet sounds. It would take more than a Paul Pry to discover auythiug wanting on this boat, for the Cap tain and owners have looked into all these Utile matters, and anticipated and provided for the wants ot their passengers. There is an excellent engine on board for extinguishing fires, and hoBe sufficient to reach any part of the boat?und the beauty ot it is, there was no "screw loose" about it; it was al ways ready for immediate use. Besides these pre cautious, every state room was supplied with three lite preservers. With such a boat, with so much comfort and safety combined, must ever be asso ciated the name ot Captaiu Henry Randall, her gen tlemanly commander. Although he may have for gotten a little of the dance, with us constant changes and windings, and between its withering mazes and the miscluevousiicss ui lus fair partner become somewhat contused, still it was vety evident that the hardships and exposures ot his responsible and honorable calling, had not unfitted flint for the lady's drawing-room. There was oue other persoti on board who de serves a special notice, and 1 have done with per sonalities?I allude tod. Card, Esqr., ot this city, one of the proprietors ol the steamer. He was truly the master-spirit of the company, which con sisted of about two nundred cabin passengers. No thing could be got up without his assistance?no tun, no dance, no frolic, unless he was the prime mover. Tall in stature, and well proportioned? good looking, easy and affable in mauiiers?dress ed in excellent taste and neatness?young, or at least unmarried, he soon became a general favorite among the young ladies, of course ; and great was the strife between them for his arm fur a prome nade on deck, to the dinner table, or for the dance. If any thing was wanting among the ladies, they wiuld sooner call upon nim than the captain, ste ward, or chambermaid, because he was owner of the boat; and neither of these three dignitaries could tilt their capacities so well, or so satislactory as could Mr. Card. There were many on board ot that boat, who will long remember his kindness, and unceasing exertions to make the excursion pleasant and agreeable to every one on board Well did he succeed?well are his exeitions appre ciated. There was an excellent band of music on board, giving a zest to the dance, and the pastimes oj the day, that is never felt unless it be under the influ ence ot such sweet harmony. We had dancing every evening; and, occasionally, would get up something a little extra, with a supper, anil wines 'o finish with. One of these extras was a " Grand Fancy Dress Ball." It was here we wanted one of your able reporters. It was so rich, rare, and racy, that I reluctantly attempt a description of it It was first spoken of at dinner. Immediately after dinner, the ladies held a meeting in the lower saloon, and resolved to give a " Bal Cotiume" ilia) very evening. Out came their needlesand scissors; and between thern and pieces of tape, grass-linen, and whalebone they can manufacture almost any thing, for a lady's dress is as susceptible to as many alterations and changes in shape and fashiun, as their hearts are to feeling and sentiment ; and the one is as often assumed tor an occasion as the other. Evening came at last, and with it the ball,and such a ball it never was my good fortune to attend be fore, and I very much doubt whether one like it ever came ofl. There were characters that would have graced the most dazzling courts of Europe, and some whose appearances wonld disgrace the worst followers of the renowned Fallstafl. The Grand Sultan of Turkey came slowly through the saloon, with iiis long crimson robe, loose trowsers looped up at the knee, and variegated turban, with the dignity of a prince heir apparent to the crown, and alter making the circuit of the saloon, settled down by the side ot one of the state room doors, like a hen on her nest, with the silence and gravity of an owl. There was Naomi, the mother-in-law of Ruth, precisely as we see her represented in sacred prints; the Swiss Minstrels, with their ac cordian, tnrnborin, and collecting plate, regaling our ears with the sweet songs of their native land, all in excellent costume ; the little Quakeress, whose usual modesty and natural simplicity so well suited her character, that there was nothing to as sume but her plain cap and shoulder-dress.

The next novel entertainment and the last, was a " vocal and instrumental concert, ' got up for the " benefit of the performers."

Hie Heulthineu oj iti Situation?The manner in which the Studenti live?Meeting of the Whigt?Succeuful trick of the Locofocot to defeat the object of it. I arrived in this fine old city about seven o'clock this evening, after a delightful 'rip in the splendid steamboat Raritan, to attend the exercises of the Commencement of Rutger's College; and as they are likely to be interesting, I have determined to give your readers such hasty and imperfect sketch es as may afiord them some idea of the pleasure of a country Commencement. My letter may per haps be also of service to those who are fitting their sons for college, if it bring under their notice the admirable institution which is located here. Rutger's College is one of the oldest in the coun try. It was founded long pri?rto the Revolution, and was then culled Queen's College, and its fel low at Princeton was then known as King's Col lege. The late Col. Rutgers, so well known for Ins liberality, made large donations to the former, and in honor of him it wus named Bulgers' Col lege. It has always maintained an elevated rank for giving a sound und thorough education to its pupils, and it is celebrated for the healthiness of its situation, a death among its students being a rare event. It enrols on its lists now the names of about eighty young men ; and as it is amply provi ded with professorships and teachers of the highest standing, it is one of the most desirable und useful seminaries in the country. The manner in which the students live is also very conducive to their improvement. They board in respectable private families, selected by the faculty; and as this city is remarkable for the moialuy ana good order of its inhabitants, they avoid those temptations to which students of other colleges are exposed. Let me finish this letter by relating a good joke that occurred this evening. The whigs in this place had issued placards, ma king an earnest appeal to their friends to rally this evening in support of Clay and Frelinghuyseu. It seems that they have had several meetings during the last two weeks, all of which have been broken up by the locofucos. But this eveuing they deter mined to have an enthusiastic gathering in spite of all opposition ; and accordingly they drummed up all their friends, and announced several orators.? Among these was one gentleman of eminence in the legal profession in this State, and u leader in political warfare, who had been elected to the Council two years ago as a whig, and when there performed some curious leats, which entirely lrus trated all the measures and plans of his party, lie iiaB been in retirement ever since, and this was the fir.-t notice the public had of his return to the w hig ranks. The mention of his name attracted a con siderable meeting of about 600 persons, well pre pared to resist any hostile attempts But the cun ning locofocos devised a method of accomplishing their malignant purposes,without the danger of get ting their heads broken. They met the aforesaid gentleman at the City Hotej, and plied him well with chauipugne, till the whig leaders, fearing a scheme of this kind, went in a rage and carried him off, vi et armit. The meeting assembled, and were at first entertained by a long speech from a lawyer ot tiomerville, named Brown?a dry, windy harangue on common topics, such as the duelling of Clay and Jacason, an argument on hickory poles, Cilley's death, arc, At last all were on tip toe to eaten the first glauce at the lion of the eve ning, when, to their bitter disappointment, it was aiittounced that he could not speak, but would fa vor them with his viewson another occasion. The meeting broke up immediately, notwithstanding an attempt to entertain them with songs, in a lury against the vHUinous locos, who had accomplish ed by intrigue what they could not by force. Less enthusiasm I have never seen at a political meet ing. Yonrs, au revoir, Roland.

Trial ok thk Saladin Pihatkh ?We have re ceived Halifax journal* of the 18th instant, which contain reports of the trial of Charlea Gustavus Anderson, William Travasgus, alias Johnston, Geo. Jones and William Hazelton, tour ol the crew ot the Saladin, tor the piracy committed on hoard that vessel. The trial was before a special Court of mixed commission. Sir Charles Adam, Presi dent. Alter the jury had been empan .elled and the in dictments read, two of the prisonets, Johnson and Ahaerson, expressed a wish to plead guilty; hut Anderson beingu foreigner, and for other reasons, the Court preferred that then first plea ot not guilty should stand and the trial go on The principal evidence against the prisoners was their own confessions, hut there was some prelimi nary testimony showing the condition ot the ves sel when discovered ashore at Country Hatbor ? Captain O'Brien, who taw her first, went on board with Captain Cunningham. The after cabin was 111 great confusion ; books and clothing and various articles were ecuiteied about without arty order; saw no specie at that time ; at another time when he went down he saw a number ol loose dollars lying in tbe alter tt|l; lie afterwards saw a great numbet ot dollars lytug in a box in the alter cabin; Mr. Sellers, a gentleman who had coma on board, was counting them over and putting thern in bags, assisted by Johnston ; the dollars were in no p ace ol safety, but appear ed to be entirely exposed ; he had sei 11 the bars 01 silver; there were thirteen of them; these sp|>eaied to be 111 the places w here they hud been originally put. Mr. Bbi.lkbs, an intelligent, gentlemanly young man, from Guys orotigh, was next examined? Captain Cunningham and Capt. O'Brien were both on board the vessel when witness got there; tfte cabin was in a disorder d, melancholy condition ; a number of trunks were broken open and lying about it, and the floor was covered with s>ruw; the prisoners now in the dock were on board ; they told linn their names; Johnston appeared to huve the whole control; he told witness he had taken charge since the captain's death; that he could not keep the men front getting drunk ; ttn crew said that the captain died alter a lew duys' illness, shortly ulter leaving Valparaiso; that 1 In mate hud long been in ill health, and died about three days after the captain; and that the third mate ami three men lied been washed oil the main yard iu a gale of wind ; all the ship's pap'is were lying scattered about in various parts of the cabin; witness collected them together ; Johnston assist ed hint ; heard no mention ol Capt. Fielding by the crew, until alter some letters were found, ad dressed to him; they then said he had died at Val paraiso, and Ills things were put on boaid to be taken home to Eugluud ; witness did not hear this from the prisoners themselves, but front some olio 1 people ; saw clothes lying about, suitable lor a boy about 14 or 15 years ol age. The Halifax Herald does not give the confes sions verbatim, but makes a copious abstract ol them, as follows:? When the baladin was about leaving Valparaiso, Capt. Fielding, whose vessel had been coufiacuiec for a breach of the revenue laws of the country, applied to Capt. McKenzie tor a passage to Eng land tor himself and his son; and they were taken ! on board as cabin passengers Shortly after get-1 ting to sea, Fielding occasionally spoke lo the men untdvorabiy ot Captain Mckenzie, told them ol the valuable cargo that was on board, and ques tioned them as to their courage and resolution, 11 ;hey were called on to act 111 desperate circum-1 stances. All Ins discourses with them were si pa- j rately, he never speaking to moie than one ui a nine tie liually told them, still speukitig in this cautious manner, to only one ut a time, that ti e crew were about to dea roy the officers, and take the ship out of their hands. That the one whom he bo nddr>ss<-d had better join them, or his own life would be in danger. In tins diabolical man ner he succeeded in seducing them one alter uii other, inio a mutiny, before they were aware ui the true slate ol the eu?e ; and in au incredibly short space of time alter he first mentioned hie plans, he succeeded in obtaining the engagemeui to take part witn htm of a sullicieut number 10 car ry them into effect. Tlie whole of this was el lected ui 14 days; and those who were in the plot, I being the piisoiiers, were of one watch, aud con sequently all being on deck together, they hau no dilhcuity in puning the plans into execution.? The night ol the 13ih April was first proposed t'oi the tragedy, but one ot the mutineers, not beiug in tus place on deck, and perhaps, the whole of tlieni vet being deficient ot that hardihood which ulone prepaies the heart of man tor such dreadful deeds, the thing was delayed. Previous to the next niglii Field ng had an opportunity to farther infuse his spirit into tbem, excited their tears, inflamed then cupidity, and got them fully prepated lor the deeds ol blood. The mate's waich, including all llit mu'itifers, were then on deck *, aud Fielding, pre tending tliat lie was irritated by an aiguineni w Inch he had with Captain Mckenzie, remained on deckt j in Conversation with the unsuspecting mate who repeatedly asked turn why he did not go down inlt the cabin to his rest. This he evaded and still re mained on deck. Finally, it now being near twelve at night, the male went to the man at the helm and told him to steer as well as he could, and as he wus unwell, he would lie down a spell on the hen coop. Here then wasu favorable opportu nity for them ; all their victims in their full power. The captain in sleep and fancied security in hi cabin; that hint the crew who were not in the plot reposing below in their hammocks, and ihe only object thut was in their way had now laid himself down,and sunk into a slumber among th< m This opportunity they but too well improved- Trie work of death was commenced by Johnston taking an axe, and in darkness and in silence, approaching ihe Bleeping man, buried the edge ot it in his head .Sensation was immediately suspended ; and with ??ut the least noise they threw the lifeless body into the sea. Their next plan was to kill the captain, and Jones and Anderson wrre sent down into tlx cabin lor that purpose; but the sleeping man's dor was keeping watch for his safety, while his brothel man was plotting his death- This dumb animal made them to<> fearlul to proceed, and they return ed on deck. Their plan was then temporarily al ered ; ihey proceeded uft and called up the parpen ter, and as soon as his head whs above the compa nion he receivtd a blow with a hammer which stun ned him. One of the conspirators then placed hit hand over his mouth, and two others threw turn overboard. The contact with the sea probably re stored animation, and he called out "Murder''' This became the accidental cause of calling Capt McKenzie on deck ; on the drowning man's cry ing murder, Fielding, then near the i ntrance It the cabin, called out with a loud voice "A man overboard!" when Capt. McKenzie, with the be uevolent design ol saving some of his crew, rushed up on deck; and no sooner had lie got there, but he was attacked with an axe by Anderson The blow, however, did not take effect, and the assaulted man grappled with the murderer, who n would appear retreated, for it was come distance from the cahinstuirs when he was seized by Hazel ton, and Johnson, who was commanded from the helm by Fielding to assist, running lo the scene o' action, took hold of one of (iih captain's hands In this situation, with three of the murderers hold ing turn. Fielding gave him repeated blows on tin back part of the head with an axe, winch math him a corpse. All this was done in much short ol a minute?no noise was uttered, and the onij word spoken hy their victim was when Fieldiny was approaching wiih the axe ; the whole inien tion then appearing evident, he cried out, "U Capt. Fielding !" As soon as the fatal blows sum petided animation, the body was cast into the era After a short consultation they ngain assembled aft, and, hy ihe wav of arousing the watch below, ihey lowered the jib ; Ihe noise which tins made, together with the calls of Fielding and others soon brought the poor wretches on deck ; and with perfect security to themselves, in the darkness ot midnight, and with weapons ot destruction in then hands, they silently despatched them one altei another, as they came on deck ; and in short of an hour alter the work of destruction began, six unsus pecting mortals were thus hurried into et-riuiy, ami iheir bodies buried under the waves of the ocean Carr and Galloway, the cook ami steward, who were not in the plot, and who-e dunes did not call them on deck, were then the only ones that re mained, and it became a matter of inquiry what should be done with them. Fielding proposed thai they should he slain also. This was objected to anil some of them said no more blood should be spilled. When they were called up in the morning and informed what had been done, Galloway, w? understood, said, that lie was sorry ihey had not killed him with Ins messmates; and Carr w,u cry ing all the next day. They were then all called together by Fielding, anil an oath was adininistei ed to them on the Bible that they would all Ue tru? to each other like a band of brothers. It would appear, however, that Fielding was suspicious of them, notwithstanding their unholy oath; for si Ins suggestion all the arms and ammunition, togi ther wiih axes, adzes, and all offensive we spot, on board, wsre thrown into ihe sea. They then had the vessel, with all the costly freight, entirely at their command, and Fielding proposed that the; should run her to the coast ot North America, lam! at some secluded spot in or about the Gulf ol Hi Lawrence, and secure their bonty on shore; alter which they would go to the States, ?n<l return with some small veie-el to hung it away. This well laid scheme Mas, however, lieleaird hy his own cupidity and reckless inhumanity. In a conversation th nextdey with Johnston Field* II g said that he would get rid id Carr and G llo w?y when tlrey got near the land, hy giving them a dose of poison, and gilt ged that they niust have the crew still farther reduced. This Ji>linati>ii did not approve of, and mentioned it to his < < nirutite, which occasioned ihem all to ieel suspicious of' Fielding These suspicions were ituteased by the>r accidentally discoveting ihat fie had secreted iwo horse pistols, some ammunition and a huge carving knile This they linint dialely taxed hliii with, but he denied know ing any thing about tin m ?and in a conttovt rsy thai ensued, he said that ho would throw himself overboard, and wasleuving the cabin professedly with that intent. They, how ever, took hold of hun to swip him, and having got hold of him, they kept him; and on some one ol tliem saying that fie ought to be secured, tliey lnonie tuarily came to a determination to do it, and tied lum hand and foot, and melancholy to say, the young hoy, who hud taken no part in the transaction, was tied also. In this state they were left on the cabin floor all night. The next morning, the sun, it would appear, w as liberated; tor tie was afterwards found on the for ward part of the deck. As for the monster. Field ing himself, he had his feet untied and was brought on deck, and was made to hear il.e consultation respecting what wsb to be done with him The result ol vvhic h consultation v as that tloysiKuld throw hun oveibo.ird, and this wua ni cordingly done ; and Carr and Galloway w?ie made to assist \n doing. 'I he poor Utile hoy wt.s forward at the lime, and notwuheiaiidi. g hia piteous prayers lor mercy, and his screams ?i affright, he wus thrown over also. Alter the confessions were rear1, the prosecutionc'osed, ana the Chief Judge, going one by one through the list ol prisoners as ihey were named 111 the indictment, asked them it they had anything 10 say in behalf < f themselves. Johnston m reply asked leave to read it paper lie before spoke of; which leave w <3 granted. This paper was evidently prepared under Hie hope that ilieie was still a prospect ol mercy for him; hut it disclosed no toots- on which tuch .1 hope could he grounded. The other prisoners re ferred their defence to ihtir counsel. William Young and L (J'C. Doyle, bears , each addressed the jury in it short speech on bt hall of the prisoners; hut it was evident that neither had a?y expecta tions of saving them from thetpenaliy so justly due 10 the aggravated crimen they had been guilty of. The Jury, after a quarter of hri In ur'a absence, re turned with a veidict 111 accordance wr.h Ins Lord ship's chargi?that ihe lour prisoners were guihy. The trial of the oiher two prisoners, Curt and Galloway, lor the murder of Captain Fielding and his son, was brought on the next d..y, the 19ilt, but the result bus not reached us. Tliey were pro bably lound guilty, but perhaj a with a recommen dation to mercy.
