How cousoling, then, is the consciousness of having been the instrument of rescuing thousands from misery to those who possess it. What an amount of suffering has been relieved, anil what a still greater amount of suffering can be prevented by the use of sands'* Sarsaparjlla! The unfortunate victim of Iteredilary disease, with sw ollen glands, contracted sinews, and bones half carious, has been restored to health and vigor. The scrofulus patient, covereil with ulcers, loathsome to himself and to his atteudauts. has been made whole. Hundreds of persons, who had groaned hopelessly for years under cutaneous and glandular disorders, chronic rheumatism,and many other complaints springing from a derangement of the secretive organs and tlie circulation, have been raised as it were from the rack of disease, and now with regenerated constitution, gladly testify to the efficacy of this in estimable preparation. . .

Hands:?Oeuls?I consider it but an act of justice to you to state lite following facts ill reference to the great bene fit 1 have received in the cure of an obstinate Cancerous Ulcer on my breast. ..... 1 was attended eighteen montlis by a regular and skilful phy sician, assisted by the advice and counsel of oue of our most able and experienced surgeous, without tlie least benefit what ever. All the various methods of treating cancer were resorted to ; for live weeks iu succession my breast was burned with caustic three times a day, and for six it was daily syringed with a weak solution of nitric acid, and the cavity or internal ulcer wis so large that it held over an ounce of the solution.. The Doctor probed the ulcer and examined tlie bone, and said tlie disease was advancing rapidly to tlie luugs, and it 1 did not get speedy relief by medicine or an operatiou, the result would be fatal. 1 was advised to have the breast laid open and the bones examined, but finding no relief from what had lieen doue, and feeling that 1 wax rapidly getting worse. 1 almost despaired of recovery,and considered my case nearly lioneh-ss. Seeing various testimonials and certificates of cure by the use of Sanus's SARSArARiLLA," in cases similar to my own, 1 coucluded to try a few bottles, several of which were used, but from the long deep rooted character of my disease, produced no very decided change ; considering this as the only probable cure lor my case, 1 persevered, until the disease was entirely cured. It is now over eleven montlis since the cure was com pleted ; there is not the slightest ap|iearaiice of a return. I, therefore, pronounce myself well aud the cure entirely ef - fected by "sanus's Sahsapahii.i.a," as I took no other medi cine of any kind during the time I was using it, nor have 1 taken any since. I'lease excuse this loug deferred acknowledg ment, which 1 think it iriy duty to inake. Your valuable Sarsa parilla cured me, with the blessing of Divine Providence, when nothing else could, and 1 feel myself under lasting obligations to you. 1 can say many things 1 cannot write, and 1 do most respectfully invite ladies alUicted as 1 have been to call ui>on me and 1 will satisfy tliem fully of the truth as slated above, aud many other thiugs iu refereuce to the case. NANCY J. MILLER. 218 Sullivan street, next door to the Methodist Church. The following extract from a letter just come to hand will be read witn interest. The writer, Mr. Almy, is a gentleman of tlie first respectability. Justice of the Peace, he. Tlie patient suffered for years Willi Fever Bores on his legs, and could find uo relief until lie used Sauils's Sarsaparilla. Mr. Almy, wriliug si the request and on behalf of the patient, Jonathan Harns, ays Okntlemen :?It lias once more become my duty to coinmuj nicate to you tlie situation of Mr. Harris, and you may rely upon it 1 do so with the utmost pleasure. Mr. Harris says that four of his sores are entirely liealal up, and the remainder are fast doing so. * He further says, that ne has uo )>aiu in the af fected limb whatever?that las sleep is of the most refreshing nature, and his health iu every res|>ect very much improved?so visible is the change that all who see him exclaim " what a change!" aud earnestly enquire what he has been doing I He has gained iu tlesli very much, and is able to work at his trade, ?which is dial of a shoemaker?without any inconvenience, This is the substance of his narrative?but the picture 1 cannot in any w ay here do justice to. The manner, the gratitude, tlie faith, and the exhiliratiug effect upon his spirits, you cau but faintly imagine. He requests me to say he will come and see you as surely as he lives.

Mil J?*rt Grand Ball at Went Point. West Point, August 30lh, 1844. Dear Friend Bennett ;? I have taken the liberty of sending you a few of my " pencillings by the way," in order to keep you au rourant of affairs which are transpiring at this delightful place. The following note, neatly printed, was received in New York a few days since, which will explain how 1 happen to be writing from this place, and will serve as an introduction to the brilliant fite which came oil here last evening?in relatioa to which I propose to send you these hasty remarks. The note is as follows:? " The U. 8. Corps of Cadets request th<* pleasure of Mines (See. Stc. Sic ) company at their Military Ball to be given at West Point on tho 49th ot August, 1*44. " West Point, N. V., August 17th, 1844." It was signed by ten managers. With a view of attending to this invitation, and for the purpose ot getting rid of a little of the tedium vita, a small party of four ladies ad& three gentlemen, of which 1 composed one, were seen yesterday morning on board the steamer Troy, making rapid headway up the noble Hudson. After u few hours spent very agreeably in enjoying the balmy air, the su pert) panorama oi hills, mountains, country seats, villages and villas, and all the magical transfor mations of the bewitching scene, we arrived at this place yesterday at half-past ten o'clock in the forenoon. After landing we made immediate application to the hotel tor rooms, but were informed that there were already about 250 persons staying at the house, although the capacity of the hotel was only sufficienttto accommodate about lifty. At length, however, as a mattet of special favor, a small room in the attic, without tiny window, was obtained for the four ladies, and the gentlemen were pro mised the privilege of sleeping on the floor of the corridor or parlor during the night. The gong soon announced to us the agreeable intelligence that It diner etait tervi, and we were soon seated in the commodious saloon a manger, where It rtpat was served, which 1 cannot say was tout a fait rechercht. There was no soup, and 1 saw no fish; and, although there were plenty ot other dishes on the table to satisfy the whole com pany, there was so much hurry and contusion that none of the guests could eat with much comfort. There was a great deficiency of waiters, so that almost every person had to make his dinner ofl the diBhes which were within his reach, without having his plate changed or ether attention paid to him. But perhaps the maitre d'hotel is entitled to a little indulgence, on account of being unusually crowded just at this time ; but I don't know what excuse he can wfler for serving a dinner without soup and salad. The hotel is conducted strictly on the tem perance principle; not even a drop ot champagne can be obtained lor dinner. After waiting until 9 P. M., the report of several cannons were heard in quick succession. This was the signal for the ball to commence. Our party was soon seated in a carriage, which soon sat us down at the academy, which is the name of the building in which the ball is h?ld. We entered, and the first coup d'ail of the immense and ele gantly decorated saloon prepared for the occasion, was such as to sttike the beholder with astonish ment and rapturous enjoyment. The saloon com prised the entire ground floor of the building, with the exception of the left wing, which was reserved for the supper room, and embraced an area of up wards of one acre; the place was hung round with various flags, banners and ensigns, und was very tastefully decorated with evergreens, interspersed with roses, woodbine and inyrtle; und the whole was illuminated with several thousand variegated lamps and numerous chandeliers. Around the sides of the room were placed 26 military tents, with the usual camp furniture into which the com pany when tired ot dancing retired for rest und re freshments. Each tent bore the name of one of the States ot our confederacy, and over the entrance to thf* dancing*sahion in gilt letters were written the word " Ettayontbetween each U?nt was a large gun, generally twenty-four pound how with ers, together with ballB, bombs, and all the neces sary paraphanalia of war?each ot the pillats which a<-e in this immense saloon amounting to about fifty, was surrounded with muskets. Tne walls of the room were tastefully decorated with swords, subreB, pistols, tec., placed in combinations so as to represent the sun, the moon, the stars, Medusa's head, &c.; the room was also hung round with the portraits of distinguished military officers. The company consisted, as was supposed, of about one thousand persons, composed of the corps ot cadets, officers of the army and navy, and many lawyers, doctors, litirateurt and gent a la mode; and when the strong light of the saloon came in contact with the glittering uniforms of the officers, and the rich ana sumptuous dresses of the ladies, and the variegated embellishments of the room?it made the enect tout entemble, such as has bean rarely excelled in this country?and which made me think that there is no reason for believing that the splendor of which we read in the Arabian Nights is fabulous. The assembly was a kind of aCongreBS, in which all the States were represented. The army of the United States was ably repre sented in the presence of Gen. Scott, the Command er-in-Chief, and other officers of high rank. The Navy of the United States, and the Mexican Navy by several officers belonging to these services The Hon Mr. Wickliffe, the Postmaster General, and hit family, were also present. And among the company was quite a sprinkling of the elite of Ame rican aristocracy. Tiie dancing commenced soon after 9o'clock. "A thousand heart* beat happily; and when Muaic awake with ita voluptuous swell, Soft evea looked love to eyea which spake again, And all went merry as a marriage belle.'1 The dancing continued without interruption un til about one o'clock, when the company marched into the saloon, in which the su|>per wan prepared; the tables in this saloon presented a scene of splen dor which 1 cannot pretend to describe?it looked more as though it had been produced by AUadin's lamp than by human hands. Alter the supper was over I prepared to withdraw from the ball; but it appeared as though but few were inclined to follow my example, the general sentiment which seemed to pervade the whole as sembly was? " On with the dance ! let joy be unconfined, No sleep till morn when youth and beaut\ meet To chase the glowing houra with flying feet." The beautiful and accomplished daughters of General 8. attracted much attention, and were amiable and polite to aM. The graceful Miss N., of Poughkeepsie, was dresaed with great taste?her eyes evidently had made effect on the heurta of many of the young gentlemen. The amiable Miss M., of Piuladel Chia, as usual, looked extremely well, and ever ad a kind word or a smile to dispense to each of her admirers; but the belle who was considered as having carried off the palm, was Misa R. of New York. " It was her who taught the lampa to burn bright, Her beantv hung o'er the cheek ot night Like a rich jewel in an Kthiop's ear Beauty too rich for uae, for earth too dear." Her dress consisted of a white satin slip, over which was a dress of thin pink tulle, or rript <tro phone : it was very low in the neck, and trimmed around the neck with lace about four inches wide: the sleeves were short and tight; a girdl* ancireled her waist; her hair was dressed plain, but slightly ornamented wit* (lowers and golden ornaments; her shoes were of white satiu ; aad she held a bou quet of flowers in her hand. There were many other ladies present who were truly distinguished for their beauty, dress, and accomplishments, who are deserving ?f a special notice, but of whom I have no time to speak. The dancing, 1 understand, was kept up until daylight, when the company separated, much fa tigued, but having highly enjoyed themselves. Too much praise cannot be awarded to the corps ot Ca dets for the handsome manner in which they got up this ball, and lor their polite attention and behavior to all their guests.

The Herald?-Polkamania?Hotels?Fourth 0/ March next?Piney Point In the absence from town of your regular correE pondent, I have taken it upon myself to drop you a few lines, hoping that in so doing, 1 shall not trespass too much upon the thousands who daily read the Herald. And I cannot let thin opportu nity p ?aa without Baying 11 word or two upon a sub ject, in regnrd to which your course must receive the unqualified approbation of every lover ot his country. I mean, sir, your full exposition of the low ribaldry contained in certain papers, which profess to be,]iar excellence, the very pinks of mo rality and decency. It will be remembered, too, that some of these were the very journals which, not lorg since, teemed with the lowest abuse o; the Herald and its conductor. Who thai has been a constant reader of your paper, will not bear witness to the able manner in which you have always maintained the interests and cha racter ol the American people at home and abroad; and to the spirit in which you have vindicated their institutions against the slaederous attacks ot those who sought to hold them up to the ridicule of Europeans, while many ot your brother editors were catering for the base appeiiteH of hackneyed politicians, ami their unprincipled followers. Some of your illustrations are really rich?for instance, the duel. A Phiz, or an Alfred Crowquill could not have done better. Pursue the course you have hitherto followed, and the Herald will always be what it now is?the most enterprising and indepen dent paper in New York I almost despair of being able to say any thing likely to prove interesting to your readers, as this " city ol magnificent designs, and convenient dis tances," is proverbially dull in the summer. Poli tics here, as elsewhere, aire all the rage. In the bar-rooms, saloons, and Btreets, you may hear the name of Polk as often, and from as beautiful lips, as the magic word Polka in the brilliant reunions of Saratoga and Newport. In this place the coons have hitherto had it nearly their own way in re spect to processions, \c; but, on last Monday, the " young and the old Deinocracie" turned out, in all their strengh, at the dedication of the hickory, which has been lately planted in front ol the Globe ollice. There was a whole host oi speakers, who enchained the attention of an immense as semblage of persons until late in the night. The pole is about 220 feet high. About mid-way up was a platform, upon which wan placed a small cannon, which boomed forth over the heads of the crowd, at regular intervals, during the evening Since the returns have been received from the elections, which have lately taken place in differ ent parts of the country, the knowing ones say that it will be a close contest. Bets are freely otiered and as freely taken, both on the individual and th6 general result. A wager of live or six thousand dollars was closed here a few duys since. Humor says one of the parties was a distinguished southern whig Senator now or then in this city. The repairs and improvements of Colman's (late Gadsby's) Hotel are going rapidly on. A beautiful I>ortico, supported by four massive pillars has just >een erected in front. The other establishments and boarding houses are beginning to brush up for the fall and wiuter campaign. Grand times nere next fourth of March. Don't forget to send on one of your incomparable reporters, so thut the Herald may contain a fuil account of the doings, for the edification of those whom business or other circumstances may keep at home. Among all your extensive correspondence from the different watering places, I do not remember to have seen any thing in the shape of a letter from Piney Point. This is a fashionable resort of some note in this part of the country, situated about 120 miles from the District. 1 spent a few days there this season, and found the accommodations much improved. The gentlemanly proprietor seems de termined to omit nothing which might tend to the comfort of his visitors. The crabs, oysters and bathing are unsurpassed. I only hope it may be free from the presence of a certain clique who go "head of the jack-straw aristocracy of New York. Nous vtrrons? Ai.ktheia. Hcbencctadjr. Correspondence of the Herald.

Sir?Oft as I take up your paper, I cannot avoid expressing if not audible, yet inward, surprise that Durip^has no regular correspondent; ergo, 1 have tome to the conclusion, if thee see fit, now and then, possibly daily, to apprise thee of our doings. Durip is Durip still, in spite of all trials to make it otherwise, and still we nave considerable news yet that might interest you and your readers. We have political meetings on both sides, and we have much BDort daily in seeing the vastly exaggerated political tea ehat that fills the minds and mouths of all, trom the orient down. But to news. This plaea has two tobacco manufactories on a pretty large tcale. Since the great Albany Maes Conveution a de preciation appears to have existed in Locofoco money matters, but whether it is a real or sham af fair, 1 know not. One thing I teel confident, that as fare was reduced to twenty-five cents to Albany and back on that day, the cars were well loaded, and sine* then money is not so rife; but as Union College goes again next week, we live in great ex pection and hop* of being able to do a little then, hoping to recover our l?ss of Convention money by bringing of student cash. Building is going on rapid, and P. J. Clute cV Sons are just finishing one of the largest and most ?up?rb machine and foundry establishments, I have no doubt, in this State. It is truly a munitnoth, aid when done, 1 don't know but a description will prove interesting to your readers, and I may give it. Serious talk is now afloat that the largs Railroad Depot whiah formerly extended from State to Liberty streets, that no doubt yo? have seen,whichjwaa destroyed a few years ago hy fire,is to be rebuilt, and that of no combustible matter as it was formerly.

Public Informert?Police Swkeri?Connecticut Blue iAWt?Whig Matt Convention, fyc. tfc Mr. Bennett Sir?A large portion of this community have an idea that New York is just the worst place in the whole world. Now I will endeavor to give y?ur readers a short sketch of what is going on in this "goodly city of elms," as some writers are pleased to call it, and than let candid persons judge for themselves which is the worst, New Haven or New York, according to the size of the place. TnNew York you have persons who are called regular public informers by profession. Here we have naif a dozen such persons. There are most of thein reformed drunkards, and n more lazy, rascally set of loafers cannot be found. By this statement I don't intend to cast any reflection on the Tem perance Society in this city?for as a Society there is none more respectable or larger in this Slate ; but I mean those who think that because (hey have left off drinking, are pertect, and have a right lo in sult every one whom they please. 1 mean tho>.e who " lounire and loaf " about Nott's corner Ironi morning till night?smoking and squirting to bacco juice in every direction, and staring at every respectable female who chancea to meet theae locomotive nuisances?these fellows are also connected with a portion of our "indefatigable police"?and any ooor widow, or any poor |>ersoii who is compelled to keep an oyster shop lor a living, these fellows will pounce upon, have them arrested for selling beer " contrary to the Oonnecti cut Laws in such cases made and provided;** have them fined #5 and costs, in all about $11. The next morning they all meet and divide the spoilr, purchase inore segars and tobacco, then " lay low'" tot another victim. Hut there is " a rod in pickle" for them, and ere long they will find something else lo attend to hut loafing anif smoking aegars. We are to have a grand Mass Convention hen next week, on Thursday. The whigs have madi arrangements to accommodate 20,000 persons acru free. They are to have aixteen bands of music, with Jaongs from Jo. Hoxie At Co. It is expected that the Hon. Joseph L. White will address tin meeting; in case he should, I will endeavor to givi your numerous readers a correct account of the meeting, together with the speech. Yours, die., Ctvilum Till. Thk Ckkvasmk at Bonnkt Cakkk?For more than a mile below the crtvatw, while standing on the deck of a steamboat, with a telescope, you amy gut an occasional glimpse ol the flood, in the H ar ol the sugar field*, which, with their deep Ri een hut *, contrast itiong ly with the turbid, yeilownh thett of water, which stretches away i.ito a dark lorest of towering cypte** tree*. A* you draw Higher the object ot your visit, each gaporavenne between the growing cum. disj iky* au augmented surface of refluent water. But this mvai-iou of the water* is soon arretted by the inclined plum which the plantation* every where preseut, and thin harrier ol course, prevents the Inundation from extending much, beyond the margin of the swamps. As there ha* been much misconception reflecting the pheno mena incident to ctcvattn (in this particular in stance, it has been gravely *aid, that the inun dation was twenty feet deep upon the st.rtouctl mg plantations !) it may not be amis* to giaiice at the general bearing* of the subject. The excavating jiower of running water, depends not on its quantity or extent, but on its altitude. It the perpendicular height ol the water at the crevasse,not its quantity, w< re hiitllciently increased, it would instantly destroy an embankment el cast iron, however strong Thus ten pounds or pints ot water inatubeofia certain calibie, w ill weihh only In pound*, but on making thecal!bre ten times let*,it would couuteibalauco IOO,iba., and so on. until it would oul wi igh the globe itself, without adding a drop to the ori ginal ten pound*. iience, the column ol water on es caping through the crenun, being uc longer confined, louses its altitude, and consequently much ol its txcava ting power ; it spreads with celerity over the inclined plain to the right and left. The mam cential tody re tain* much ot the impetus it received in paning over the batture ; its deflected currents, divtr gent at first, loon hasten on th< ir quiet path to the same destination in the level swamp dis trict. Here its current ends, a* it soon finds in Lukes Mauripo* and Pontchartrain the identical level that the parent river finds at the ilaiize on the (Juif of Mexico, more than 160 miles distant. To inundate u plantation '20 feet deep would require a tise of the Atlan tic ocean of at least 3A feet, since the swamps and lakes of lower Louisiana occupy the same level as the Uull itseli. It is a hydrographical law of all rivers, (but no where so strongly marked as in the lower Mississippi) that an augmentation ot W4ter never gives a proportional width, but an increase of depth, with an additional power of vertical abrasion. Thus the Ohio is nearly as large as the lower Mississippi, alter the latter has received a hundred tributaries The lormer, at low water niaiL is scarcely a few inches?the latter is more than 1(H) it. deep. The law ot biat or mrandtr, the most inexplicable iuw of river hydrography i* no where moie stiongly show n than injour great river. Andrince every towuiaud plantation hi s the deepest interest in knowing its nature, causes, < Hi dl, and concomitants, it is surprising that thi* study, in a field so favorable, hss not been undertaken by some i jhilosophi cal engineer or geographer. We need not lear that the lower Mississippi will swallow up cities and plantations, or even change it* bed liom any other law then that ol lateral abrasion, which i* the efiect ot this strange law? strange, because a piiori we would suppose tliut a mas sive stream, flowing through a solt alluvion every w here alike, would necessarily dig tor itself a straight channel, instead of n crooked one, with a series ol sain nt and re tiring bank*, of carve* and semicircles, earning the river almost to return to its point of depar ture, in certain localities, alter ilowing many mile* toward* all points of the compsss In succession. A plantation can never lie submerged, t xcept that por tion directly in the bed of a laige cm-rent through a Crevasse, and partially in the neigliboihcod utile ti 'mi nus of the inclined plane ; this terminus being m arly of the same level as the ocean, which latter may be said to approach within a tew milt h (3 to 4) of the levee, by means ol the lake*, is MO lctt above the bottom of the ri ver, and being densely covered with cypresses, palmet tos, vines, shrubbery, and stioogly matied prairie grass es, would seem to oppose the notion of the river changing its bed, by excavating anew channel; especially .is tin: whole tail, now grauuatid to as to tei.cli the level in the course ol several hundred milts, would nil be exj ended in half a mile. A bar like that at the Bali/c would loim in the sw amp The only portion of the State menaced by inundation is that bounded by the Metarie Kidgu on the west and noith, and by the levee on the south and east, including New Orleans. '1 his will require two coincident circumstances, which hnve not happen* d since the foundation ol the city, but which may readily hap pen any year: first a great crevasse at or below Cui rollton, with, secondly, a hurricane from the north similar to that of 1H31 and 1N37, when the lake reached nearly to the centre ol the city, (llampatt street) elrvu ting the water to six or seven feet abuve the low water mark of the cauals. The Metai ie Ridge would prt -t it a strong barrier to ttie recession ol the waters pouring I torn both side*, by strong winds mid strong cuirents simul taneously. A crevasse ol the dykes in Holland, on one occasion, let in the cea and drowned sixty thousand peo ple The crevasse at Bonnet Carre suggests a hint to the public upon the construction ul It vees. A mast of watt r, 2ro in 300 to 400 feet wide, and probably fiom twelve to fifteen deep, tumble# over the old but;lire, touring like a cutaract, increating in velocity as it paste* the gorgt of the remaining levee, "tailing, wheeling, foaming, and thundering through,'' it seems v-iy soon to lost all its fury in laige thrubberv, which fortunately promi ses to brave the maddtning breakers and their vertical abrasions, though a ft w leetile mulberry trees have yield ed and been uprooted.

A. T. Turner, "Equestrian, of New Yotk " The offi cers were steadily on the look-out for him, Imth day and night, and notwithstanding they could llnd. here and there, imrtiors of the stolen property, either lold or pawned to unsuspecting parties, who readily, on demand, surrendered it up, yet Turner was nowhere tote found. On Friday night, however, the ollicers had teuton to ins pect that lie would make his appearance in a boat on the Falls, and they therefore repaired to Ilia spot, in the ri ar of the Front st Theatre, and at about ID o'clock, the oars of the boat were heard. The suspected individual,thinking that such a mode ot travelling at that latn hour, would certainly ensure his safety, buiried to the landing place, and setting his craft adrift, was about ascending the stone steps, when he was suddenly and unexpectedly seizt^ by the collar by officer Ridgely, one 01 the above tiim, but Turner, by ? sort of " equestrian" feat, managed to es cape fiom his grasp, leaving his coat behind, and then plunging into the Kails, with Hidg> ly at his Ik els. at. tempted his escape by reaching the boat Bidg< ly, how ever, also got into the boat, when a dpspernte itrnpfrle ensued between them, which ended in the two falling overheard, when Turner succeeded in dim imaging 1 un (elf from hii pursuer, and, being apparently an txpert swimmer, made rapidly for the opposite s de of the Fi.l.s, which he succeeded in reaching, and then made a quirk retreat, although soaking wet, with a greater portion of bis clothes torn lrom his l*dy during the struggle to re lease hiunelf. Ridgely Iming thus cut iff in his pursuit, by the Falls, hastened down, as quick, a possible, to noith Frederick street, where, after some inquiry, he as certained that a man answering the description of Toner, had a few moments before been seen standing alongside an unfinished buildini? in the vicinity He Immediately procured a light, and in the second story the gentleman was discovered. Finding that he would be arrested at all ka/ards, he quietly came down anJ surrendered 1 imself into the hands of officer Ridgely, when ne was taken be fore Walton (irav, Esq .who commi ted him, en aclxugu of kt'-aling, for antrther examination this afternoon Thin is Mtpposed to be the same individual who broke into the Museum several week? ago.
