NE V YORK HERALD. New York, U. W41. City ilcl'orui. We publish in our culuins to-day ft document is sue.i by the Board of Supervisors, purporting to be a report made by two members of the Corpora tion, on the fcubject of the taxes ot the present year? ihe assessment rates?with ail the particu lars nt the imposts on the property held in this city. This document is ostensibly the rnani'ebto of the new party in the Corporation, shadowing forth their principles and their views on city taxation.? It is intended &9 a sort ot reply to all those who have been finding fault with the present Corpora tion, in consequence ot their infidelity to those re pealed and solemn pledges which they gave before their election, not one of which they have redeem ed in any way, except by the tying of tin pans to stakes around the Park Fountain, on the Fourth of Julv?the banishment of the apple women from around the City Hall, and the enactment of ordi nances prohibiting all omnibus drivers, under the severest penalties, trom looking behind This is, in fact, the official answer to all those who yet call out for more city relorin, and who ask of the new party in the Corporation a fulfill ment of their pronuseB and pledges made to the people before their instalment into office. Well, what does it preseuil Let us examine past times. Ou looking over the records of the Corporation during the last few years, we have ascertained and compared the amount of taxation, the value of property, real and personal, and the population of the city in the years intervening between the pre sent and 1836, and in order to show the result, we annex the following table, in which the items have been obtained from authentic public documents ? This tuble comprises a connected history of eight years, embracing periods in which the whig party ruled, the locotoco patty ruled, and now the "na tive" party. Here it is: ? Amkiicd PaorERtv or Nkv* York Citt?T*ik? Levied? Population. year. Heal. I'ertnnal. Taxes.

A greater addition to the taxation of the city than ever auy other party dared to impose ! And yet with these palpable tacts belore us, we are present ed with a twice document, admitting to the fullest extent the enormous increase of taxation, but with the most beautiful simplicity in the world, throw ing the blame upon their predecessors. This is the old, rotten, decayed excuse of all parties who have proved traitors to their trust, and trampled on their promises. During the last tew years, the unitorin outcry of all parties has ncen, "Oh! it is, indeeo, too true that your taxes are enormously increased, but it was all the fault of our rascally, corrupt pre dt cessors!" In fact, the simplicity and naivtti ot this document almost amount to the sublimity of impadence and arrogance. These men come mlo power under the pledge and promise ot a reduction of the taxes at all hazards, and ihey have now the audacity to put themselves brtore the people as the advocates ot a vastly increased taxation. Such is the ridiculous and unprincipled position in which these pretended reformers have come forward; and what do they give us now by way ol pledge and promise when they are again before the people with candidates for re-election 1 Why, that they will put down the Pope of llome?that they will check Bishop Hughes?that they will immo late the Catholics ! And will all this reduce the taxes whieh th? people of this city have to pay out of the sweat of their brow and their daily toil! Will the balderdash which is published and spok?n and talked about that old Imbecile at Rome, be sufficient to satisfy the people of this city that those who have stepped into power on the faith of their pledges of reform, that these men have ful filled those pledges by increasing ou' taxation We do net believe tkat the peop e of this city, or ol any American city, left to the diciatjs of their own independent judgment and common sense, will allow themselves to be duped by such conduct And we are willing to abide the event whenever it may take place^ s,NnUL4B roumcAL Calculations ?The phi t ,B4,pher of the Courier and Enqxartr in Wall ?treet has put forth several singular calculations oa the result of the elections that have taken ? lace during the present week. The State ot Ohio they claim lor Mr. Clay and the wings by a tre mendous majority, and probably ihey may get it. But he claims Pennsylvania ulso, by n singular cal culation, founded on a process which is perfectly n-w to us. The philosopher of the Courier argues, that it will be necessary for the whig purty to he beat by 15,000 majority at l?ast in this election, in order to carry the State for Mr. Clay in November. The same process is applied to the New Jersey election now pending, and it Thomson, the loco foco candidate does not get 1,500 or 2,000 majority, the locofocos are all gone; but if he does get it, then-and here's the beauty of this new process in .olitical calculation?then the State is certain to go for Clay in November. The clearness of this cal culation?the conviction which it carries to the mind?cannot be paralleled in any books on the science of mathematics, unless we look into that famous book published by Paddy from Cork, in which all the calculations are as " clear as rnui . The philosopher ot the Courier ought certainly to is^u- a treatise explanatory, ot his system of phi losophy, for the use ot school* and coll gee, as it certainly pulsus in nimdot that same Paddy from Cork, facing a rain storm, with his coat buttoned behind. Sewfss for thk City ?We s*r from a message adiresaed oy the Mayor to the Corporation, that a project is now on foot to build sowers for this city. I Suo.i a project to be of ?ny u-' in such a city au New Y'>rk would involve tfi n.enrtous expense, ,irob tMv as rnurii as that incurred in introducing the Croion w.iter. Besides, according to re< ?nt ch mical d:*<ovrr<e , a process has been ascer tained by vshich all the accumulated filth ol Urge Cities can be disifitected and converted into the most valuable of manareo. We have **en state ments and calculations in relation to ihe utility mid value of this process, from which it u apparent th?t * revenue over and above all expenses ot $300,0"O [?r annum, could be derived from the application of this process to the common sewers and all such depositories ot filth in this city. The old system of sewers is then quite too expensive, and, indeed, unnecessary _ Da win. Webster in Pennsylvania.?D???el Webster is stumping it in Pennsylvania at a very extraordinary rate. He has spoken at Philadel phia?at Valley Forge?at Reading-at PottstriUe, and at we don't know how many other placet? sometimes at two places in one day. This isgrest speed, almost equal to lhat of the Columbia rail road,'and we only trust that there may be no ex plosion. It is deemed and taken tor granted by our whig friends, that Mr. Webster's stumpi. g it through Pennsylvania is going to carry that State tor MV. OIaV Verf welt, let'? ws'f and see if it rloei Political Movimknt# ?The Tammany HaLL Delegates, to nominate members of Atsembly, assembled last evening and selected Mr Isaac B. Smith, of the Ninih Ward, on the firm ballot. A second ballot was inudr, but none of the candidates received sufficient votes to place iliem in nomina tion The delegation then adjourned till Friday evening next. Run on the Rhode Island Banks?Some days ego, the celebrated firm in the Democratic ranks known by the name and title ofiSlam, Bang ic Co., put forth a powerful rallying ciy of a call for specie on the Rhode Island banks. We have ?ince been very curious to know the amount of notes Vhich they have returned to these banks, and ihe amount of specie which has consequently left the Vaults of those uufortunate institutions. But we rather suspect, after all, that that section of the locofocos can run their own bare legs a devilish sight better than they can run the Rhode Island banks And this is the project to get Dorr out of prison! A more egregious piece of absurdity never entered into any one's head. O'Gonnkli.'s Future Operations.?We give to day on our first page, the last speech of O'Connell, and a very curious one, in some respects, it|is. It will be teen that he is more violent and more un disguised in his declarations than ever The agi tation is to be more comptehensive in future, em bracing England and Scotland. And the " main Chance" is not forgotten. The " funds" are to be replenished. The scheme of a " Preservative Assembly" ;s very well devised. Each member is to contribute five hundred dollars before he takes liisseat. O'Connell never loses sight of the" funds " In this respect, he constantly reminds us of Jeremy Diddler, and his everlasting?" Have you got such a thing as a guinea about you 1" Outrages and Riots.?We hardly open a paper from any part of the country, without finding the account of some outrage or riot, or murder, grow ing out of political excitement. The gross person alities?the slander?the scurrility?the viiupera tion?the falsehood?the violence?the demo ralization?which have characterized the present contest, are now bringing forth their fruits. This lias been, in fact, for the last six months, a perfect saturnalia, fol'y, intemperance, violence, plunder and licentiousness, produced by political excite ment. The only redeeming point about the contest, has been the appearance of the ladies ut the public meetings and assemblages. And even this is pain ful. 1 he bringing the domestic feelings, virtues and habits, into contact with all the rudenets, vulgarity and licentiousness of the political arena, can, w e fear, only mar the beauty of the former, whilst 110 salutary influence is exerted on the latter. Valuable Gift.?We saw yesterday a beau tiful silver tea service, comprising a teapot, cream p.tcher, and sugar bowl, which are to be given to Captain Randall, of the steamer Wisconsin, of the U,'per Lakes. This Bet is beautiful for its chaste nesM. and is a gift from the passengers of the Wis consin, on her pleasure excursion on the lakes la6t summer. Fellow, Rudd, and Scudder are its makers, and they have done justice to the donor?, as well as to the silver. Decision in a Private Mail Cask.?It appears that Judge Randall, in Philadelphia, decided on Mouday. Hgainat James W. Hale, a private mail runner, for $2000, being for forty penalties of $50 each. It is said that the case will be carried up to the Supreme Court for revision. That court may confirm (his decision, and thus settle the powers of the Post Office depirtment. Theatricals, Palmo's ?The new and beautiful ballet went ofl. still better last niRht than on th? previous occasion of its performance. The dinces were deservedly much applauded. It is really the only thing of the kind ever got up in this city worthy of the name. The hou*e was not so crowded as the entertain merit deserved, but still it was a very respectable house. We noticed Captain Robert Tyler, with his lady, and a number of leading fashionables in the front boxes. To-night the opera of Tl Pirata is repeated, and another brilliant and fashionable ' house, of course. The Park.?Madame Oito made a very good impress on ih the fir->t act of Cinderella, which was introduced after Mr. Jones' opera. She is a charm ing vocalist. Her benefit takes place tomorrow nijht, and it will, doubtless, be a bumper. GCJ* Dempster gives auother Concert to-night at the iociety Library Rooms. See advertisement. Musical Debutantes in Boston.?Mr. Sloman, the well known comedian, has been at Boston, ' with his two fine duuKhtera, who made (heir uttOttf there wilt |*reat (clat. We find one of the papers speak of them in the following flattering terms:? The Concert on Saturday, by Mr. John Sloman and hi* gifted daughter*, wan entirely successful.

The narrative part ol his perlormauce was exceedingly amusing, remark', imitation*, and song* being well introduced, bis anecdote* well'hit off," and hi* "recollections" pei fectly characteristic. Mr Sloman, it will lie recollected, is the lather of the celebrati d Jane Sloman, whose wonderlul execution on the piano about three ye.rs *ii ce, so much astoniihed and delighted, but wbo soon terminated her public career by marriage Be tween three und lour hundred attended the concert on Saturday evening?a goodiy number for "a flr*t appear ance," and indicating an increased audience upon their next announcement. We all recollect the brilliant dtbul of the eldest Miss Sloman, as a piunist, a year or two ago in this city, and we are very glad to find that her sisters have been so successful in theirs. Indeed, we learn from every quarter that they promise to take a very high rank in the profession they have selec ted. Mr Oarrfau's Concert?Mr. Garreau, an artist of whom fame speaks very highly, and who lias already gained many friends in this city, ss well by his gentlemanly drponment as by his fine musical genius, gives a concert at the Apollo Rooms to-morrow evening. We had intended speaking of the merits of this artist as tbey deserve, but find that the following, in the Evening Pott, expressei so lully our own opinioNs, that we annex it at once.

Ame rican Institute. The exhibition wtts opeued on Monday at 12 o'clock, at Niblo's Gardens, but it was not until yesterday morning that any thing I ke ari*tageme%t or order was obtained (or the display of the various articles scut in tor that purpose, and the continual arrival of others, made it impossible to be other wise. Yet, notwithstanding, the exhibition was visited by several hundred on the first day, particu larly towards the evening. On the left, from the entrance there is a great display of stoves and cooking apparatus of various kiuds; opposite are placed several kinds of light carriages, with springs of a novel and improved nature; at the end of the room there is a most beautiful model of a pleasure yacht, together with some patterns ol foot brushes; proceeding onward there is a great display ol flowers, fruit and vege tables, most tastefully arranged; at the bottom end of the room some remarkably large pumpkins, squashes, and melons, together with a most beau tiful specimen of a cotton plant. In the windows on the right and left, are some beautiful specimens of transparencies and paintings on glass, of some of the priucipal events in the war of the revolution. Iu various parts of thin room are hung cards with the following intimation:? "VVi?ely resist temptations power*, Taste not the fruit?touch not the flower*, Be tii exemplar an I a guide At this great lair?a nation's pride." The smaller room adjoimug is appropriated to the. display of cutlery, tire-urms? brass and tin-work of almost every description, in the principal sa loon are displayed almost every kind of articles of clothing, glass, plate, lamps, chandeliers, book binding, printing, cabinetwork, harness,china and many other articles?altogether making a most gorgeous display. Around the gallery are placed pictures, paintings, engravings, drawings, draughts, sketches, specimens of needlework, paintings on glass, sign boardB, beautiful specimens of veneer ing and marble tops and slabs In the room at the end of the gallery, formerly occupied as the quarters of the City Guard, are hung some very tinespecimene ofDaguerriau and Photographic likenesses; beauti ful miniatures, and plaster and ivory profiles. Iu the centre anu around the room are displayed va rious articles of clothing, needle-woik, linen dra pery, woollen and cottou cloths, in great abun dauce. The room beneath ts devoted to specimens of ruachiuery, in which there is a most beautilul steam engine, which supplies the power tor turning lathes, See. Displayed in this room are some beau li ul models ot marine and locomotive engiues, turning lathes, and almost every ascription ol machinery; in the sam.* room there ate several soris of matwftsea and bed??made of straw shavings, hu?ks of the Indian corn, wool, hair and feaihere; albo, a few bgiicutiiual implements, in the garden, ou the tide next ihe theatre, there is a most beautilul and powerful engine and appur tenances, recently made for Company No. 44, called the "Live Oak." It is ornamented with pink ribbons, ou which are printed in letters ol gold, " We extinguish one flame and cherish another." In vaiious other parts ot the garden are the larger kinds of agricultuial implements, and under the piazza, around the saloon, various kinds ot dairy utensils and domestic articles; on the opposite side ot the garden there is erected a long room in which are provided refreshments, fruits, sweetmeats, pastry, See., lor those who may desire such. This, when complete, will be one of the bett exhibitions the American Institute has ever had, and will be well worthy of the extensive patronage of the public. There is little doubt but that it will be oue ot the4most popular lounges during the next lortnight. Indeed, it cannot be otherwise, for those who visit it once, will ti<~*ire to do so again and again, there beiug so many things to view that it is almost impossible to look at and examine them all at one visit, and from which may be gleaned more information of the nature and extent of the arts and manufactures, together with recent improvements therein, than the reading ot some GO volumes Every thing is expected to be in per fect order this morning, when catalogues will be ready, which will be a great assistance in viewing the diflerent articles. On Monday evening there was a considerable number present, among whom were a great many ladies Tht gallery nrout d the saloon was tilled, and down the centre crowded with persons anxious to hear the introductory address of Lieut. Gov Brutish. At (lie end ot the roum, just beneath the orchestra, was placed a portable plailorm ami read ing desk. About hall past seven o'clock, the President of the Institution, Gen. Tallmudge, took the chair. Alter some little delay Gen Tailmauue sajd- Feiiow.citi7.ens, we are eomi thu night to open the 17 U annivers&r > of tbe American lustrum, and I am glad to meet y ou and my old liiends ?n this occasion. At present it is only partialy complete; but in a short time will display what has been done to promote the art* and sciences during the past year. It i> .he great object ot the lustiiution not to nil* its proceed ings up wim politics, and the consequence is, that their are in connexion with it, the mo?t able and talented ot ail Eaities- who ceutre round it like stars round the centre luring thu continuance of the Fair, every endeavor will lie nwue to make it as attractive us , tsssihltt; there will be on variom evenings, different a dresses Irom some ol the most talented ol the supporters ol thu Institution, on var ous branches of the arts and sciences; al?o ionie good music will be piovided I wilt not delay yon longer but will at once introduce to your notice, Lieut. Governor Biadish. (Lheers.) Lieut Gjv Bbidish then camc forward and was re ceived with considerable applause. He congratulated those present ou the occasion uf their assi milling, and ex pressed a hope that the fair would receive their uppioba tion and support. They opened that place as the temple ot industry, and art--ol genius and skill and to show what these and capital had done towards improvement therein during the past year This exhibition was not only interesting to thu curious, but was the admiration ot the [ hiiosopher and the patriot?it showed the triumph ot mind over matter. (Hear, hear.) It showed what could be djne by labor and art, in which the patriot would find a diversity of tale.it displayed, botl in articles of ornament and ability?and it would show to him the progress the country had made in thesa improvements during the past year, and also to develope the material* and lesources of the country. These exhibitions arc activity to our intercourse with all parts ol the coun try, and tended to bind together the community in fii met bonds, at the sama time enabling us to be independ ent ol foreign supply. (Applause ) The gentleman then proceeded to treat on the value ot the division of labor ; tbe benefit ol supplying ourselves with what we required, lor when we sought irom foreigners that which we re quired, we were at their mercy, and they preyed on our prosperity, while in the other case we hauour prosperity in our own keeping. (Applause ) He then proceeded to show how this rendered the country safer irom foreign aggression or caprice, added to its wealth, and prosperity rendered the couutry great and glorious anil more respect ed abroad. He tnen went to show that it was tbe duty ol government to protect and promote this industry, and rot by free trade cause a reciprocity which was all on one side?(applause)?to the injury of their native land. He said there were persons who ware desirous of having trade as Iree as air. Tim theory was very beautiful, but it was only suited to a Utopia of the imagination. Suet, a thing could never be in this wairing world a* it wts at present constituted. It never had been, and could not be until man's nature was changed; therefore it was best to take things as they were,even it it was a nar rower field of action. If it wa? attempted, it would bri. g the laboring classes of this country to the states of th? black bread r ating set fa ol the noith, or to tbe condition of the pauper fed factory laborer iri other parts. Tht gentlemen proceedtd to argue that government had thi power or right to protect the home manul.ictories?and that if it did not do so, it neglected its duty It was de manded of them by the constitution It wns forthis, in a great degree, that the war ef the revolution hud its ot igin It was lorthis that thcirsires fought and bled (Applause.) The aet.tleman then proceeded to take a review of the rise and prog ess of the in-tltutiau, panting a high eulog} on the past and present officers, and r?commended the government of this country to adopt similar means to that ot Fiance for the protection and piomotion Of native industry. He said there was no nation ill the world thu' ha I the same facilities for making hersell what sfca otigh' to be, and if they ware only true to themselves and tin it country, they would become, what they were thei only in name?a free and independent nation.

The hrst effect pro duced ti|>on the spectator, is that of bewilderment; the mind is diverted from one- object to another,am* so vi vid are the external impressions upon the se rises that there is no eessation^of their activity, there is 10 rest for th? eye, no repose for the observation: (here in nothing like fligging m curiosity, nnrliali mg between two ?pinion?simply !?? cauw; there is no lime for repose or reflection to form an opirnoi i all; and it is only aflc the lapse of a considers hie period that ihe refle ive powers assume their lurce i,nil pro|>er balance ami become lit to sit 11 I idgmeni on, compare' and scritiuize the diversit; f objects shewed around. A detailed account of all these objects would necessarily occupy more time and (pact than enulc allotrd 10 thwt inn newspaper; to undertakr them in the present article, to dofulljuatiue to the exhibition of yesterday, would naturally be a failure. Yet, while a detailed and minute account is tow formidable an uudertaking, and perfect would prove too dry for pleasant perusal, a sketch ol the leading features ol the scene, ai:d the arrangements made to render it a* effective an possible, may prove not uiiiutrreming.

Those who are acquainted with the well known Gardens ?f Niblo, will recollect that immediately ttlter entering from Broadway, the visitor finde himself ill a tpacions apartment, ot such a length thit the eye can scarcely Beedisui.ctly to its further exirtmiiy. This is the great promeuade, and on the present occasion is divided into two apartments hy a temporary ptrtitton running across. That apartment next 10 the entrance, is occupied by va rious interesting articles,which one cannot for the life of liim pais without examining. Ou the right hand, a tine of beautiful productions of the coach building art?carriages, waggons, and every kind ot vehicles, some of them on unproved principles are laid out. On the left is seen kitchen ranges, culi nary utensils and stoves of every shape and form; among the last mentioned classo* articles there are some extremely handsome and symmetrical parlor stoves, such, for instance, as Lorton's parlor stove, and that commodious contrivance called the " House- wife's Assistant," well meritB a passing " The next apartment is dedicated to " Horticul tural productions," and a most attractive depart ment of the exhibition it is. Hoots and vegetables, cereal grains, fruits and flowers, pile upon pile gladden the eye. Pumpkins as large as Jonahs gourd, mammoth squashes and giant cabbages, re mind the beholder of the exceeding fertility and patent vegetation ftf tropical climes. The apples in piles, although not "in the midst ot the gar den," look as templing as ever apple seemed since the memorable day this fruit was first tasted in Eden. The peach too, and the pear, the grape iu clusters, and their several relations in crowds, are beheld in social grouping- fit emblems of the gen erous abundance which nature lavishes on this favored land, hi other places in this room are tastefully placed other articles of farming produce, amount the rest, cheese, butter, different kinds of flour aud meal, samp, and a choice assortment ot preserved fruits in bottles, than which, judging from appearance, nothing can be more puuectly treated. , . .. After leaving this department, a turning to the left leads to a space, which although entirely oc cupied by several interesting articles, particularly of iron manufacture, we will not dwell but continue our way a tew steps further, which bring us to that magnificent spectacle presented to the eye in the "Grand Saloon." So various and so nume rous are the articles exhibited in this section ot the Fair, that before halt its circuit is nerlormed, those first observed fade from the recollection.? Not to speak of minute description, there is no small trouble in forming a fair classification ot the contents of this great emporium All round the extended space,enclosed by the walls of the Orand Saloon," the visiter meets ojects that tor the tune absorb him; and when he has arrived at his start ing point, he has thn pleasing satisfaction ot disco vering that not until he has gone up and down, acrnss and back ugaiu ; not until he has peered at pendant drapery, and scanned the tempting trans formation of art imbedded in glass cases, and cabi nets; displayed on transverse tables, and loadiug adorned shelves; not until he has done all this, is he aware of the extent, the diversity and the beauty of this accumulation ot the productions of American industry. There it is beheld in arti ficial flowers, that m tint, in form, in organization, in all but vitality, rival those ot Mora herselt ? there it is displayed in the most cunning and elabo rate embroid' ry. Lace which might grace the looms of Lyons or Brussels; cut glass of the most elegant designs, and in every form, from that of the common wiue glass to the gorgeous chandelier; musical instruments; nautical instruments; opti cal instruments ; mathematical insiruineiits; speci mensof medical research ; others from the labora tory of the chemist; stationary and Books; orni thological and chonchological col.ections; the most beautiful and elaborate specimens of cabiuei work. Of the hatters, milliners and boatmakers handiwork, and, if possible, what was finer sill', h groupof statuary, consisting ot animal, human and mythological figures, and various ornamental de vicer of the most pleasing kinds, from the establish ment of L. Baronti. All these, and a vast number which we have no epace to enumerate, engaged the attention, and held the senses spell-bound in that part of the Fair of the American Institute having for its locality the "Grand Saloon, ai Nthlo's. , _ . . Connected with this, and forming a junction with it at one end, is another apartment, where there is deposited a great parti of the curious, yet tiulky machinery submitted for inspection. A few only ot these we. have lime to enumerate, for ex ample, printing and lithographic presses, patent el evating water wheels, brick moulders,double knife shio^ie shaver, improved cl icks lor shipping, vari ous specimens ot the (.-lumbers' art, wrenches, lathe**, and what was universally adinnred, a hori zontal double steam engine, freui the Novrlty Iron Works,in full operation,and communicating motion t'? a corn mill.besidee others ot the many uttetulina chinfs on the gr und. In other paits ot the r air, ilierr were samples hardware, cutleiy, clocks, carpenter's tools, house fittings, coach springs, hre arms, anil an endless number of requisites, classep hy those who are cunning in such matters, undei ihe general title ot "small wares " We have now gone over, in a very cursory mari ner, the greater part of the ground occupied by the exhibition; there still renMiiiis, however, a small portion above stairs, to which the reader s alten iion ia most particulaily directed, and which he ihould hy all means visit, were the trouble (It mimter m /wut," as we say in French ten times a> ureai. When you ascend the stairs, the coup d at the saloon below is striking ; the infinity ot ar ticles, the groups, the motion, and dress of the spectators, the fixtures and decorations which adorn the walls, have a high charm tor the looker on. Around the gallery with which this part ot ihe establishment is furnished, are hung specimens ot embroidery and needlework, ot drawing,sketch ing, penmanship,daguerreotype portraits, and many other mailers . ? .u On leuving this position, your next visit is to the cloth room, which adjoins the gallery we havt. spoken of by a door, over which, in true business style, a sign-board is fixed to catch the passing eye. The interior of the cloth room is not bo unique in its first appearance to the observer, as other parts ot the exhibition ; for, from the nature of the arti cles it contains, it much resembles one of the dry goods stores which abound in every street. On a minute examination, however, the texture of the goods, the excellence and durability ot the various fabrics, and above all, the remembrance that they are of home production, und American manufacture, they acquire a great interest in the observer's estimation. Anuingstothergoods, we were particularly pleased with the excellent quality and color of the woollen cloths. Nothing indeed could excel the material or make of some samples ot the woollen manufactured goods; of tlannels, there were some pieces which any judge must pronounce periect both in point of texture and durability. There were also woollens, de laines, barages, Orleans cloths, alpacca and para matta do., damasks, cloakings; in cotton fabrics, there were ginghams, plain and printed muslins and calicoes, table covers, satinetts, dimity, Acc.^ In addition to these, the Bilk goods and hosiery abounded, and were quite equal to the other dee criptions of goods, which, with perhaps the excep tion of cotton printed goods, were not inferior to ihe manufacture of any country. In thus specifying a few of the pleasing objects, which are now submitted for public inspection ai the Fair of the American Institute, we have done so with a consciousness, that any description we con Id give must prove tar short of the whole truth, and much less effective 111 couveyiug an accurau impression o( the scene, than a personal visit; a step we beg to receinmend to every one who has h relish for the product ion of industry, science anc ingenuity, and who sees with clearness, the vasi ..cope which this country permits for their de\eiop ineut.
