If this haa occurred, every soul in the cars must have perished, for Mr. Conductor, from some peculiar tfoncy of his, had locked us all up, and put the key of the doors at the ends of the earn in few Pocket He had left the side door open bu" this might have turned down, and any chance of escape would have been impracticable. the fact6 that tlT?^ ?' cal,,n* y?ur attention to w i con?Pany may correct the evil ly k? ? .n<iS lt?an(1 the 'radiiig public ought not be treated as swine or sheep at the faucv of any pouductor, and to gratify his caprice. V If he is _ afraid of any passenger tresniRHinv by passing into a car to which he does not befona it is, to say the least of it, a very weak fear Nor is it necessary to lock up the traveller to keep him from passiug into the ladies'car. Of all men in the world, the American is moit respectful to the ladies. He never violates these rights ? and the roughest wood-sawyer will not offend a lady if hi can help n. Nor do I know of any such csstom of Hrnnfw IP' onrt,,e line from Uristol to Brunswick, in ftew Jersey. It ought not to be forgotten that the terrific disaster in France winch happened on a railroad, was chiefly owing* f8 .?.u ?urn^er, I'ves which were lost, to the fact that the conductor had locked up the passen gers in the car, and escape waa impossible. In the case which has just happened, if we had gone into the canal, which we ahonld have done if the earth h id been frozen, every soul must have perished and the conductor would have deserved to have been severely punished. A conductor who ia in love with himself, .and with a little brief and petty authority, and delights to lock up his passengers as we see swine and sheep locked up, ought to be dismissed, with the execrations of alf good men ' no Vf" l,hc Paction that it > most probable no locomotive will ever again run oH the railroad along the canal, on the side nexr to it, without plunging into it, and carrying most of the cars with it?most probably all?and if the lock-up-system continues, without the slightest order or notice from the company, it may some pnfl . ?l.t l? u passengers. It will be re collected that the railroad runs along side of the canal, within a few feet, for many miles.

Peabody vs. Winchester?A Lawyer caught in his own net?Marriage a la Mode Pa risian?Gleanings?Game Code Trial, etc. Dkar General:? You will doubtless recollect the reply of " Shy lock" to hismaligneri? " Thou callMst me doff, bc.fore thou had'it a cauio, But lines 1 am a dog, heware my fang*." I I am reminded of this couplet by the 44 Reply to [ the 4 Remarks' of Thirty-one Uoaton Schoolmas ters on the Seventh Annual Iteport of the Secre tary of the Massachusetts Board of Education? by Horace Mann," which was published |i)?at?rday morning, and created an unusual sensation among the " Athenians." So mas terly a production has not appeared eiuce the withering ?? Jjuuoiad," or the more modern dose [ administered to the " English Bards and Scotch Reviewers." Even the Yoikshire schoolmasters, who siw themselves so clearly mirrored by "Dick ens," in his "Squeers," had sense enough 44 to beard the lion in his den;" but these Yankee teach j eis will probably decide now, with 44 Faistaff." that 44 discretion is the better part of valor." The appearance of Mr. Mann among these thirty-one schoolmasters, reminds one somewhat of Gulliver among the Lilliputians, and if your readers wish to see how delicately and entirely these 44Thirty-one," (ushe christens them,) are crushed, pulverized and annihilated, bo, that their concentrated essence . would not "stop a bung-hole," let me refer to the document in question, and without further pre I i mi 1 nary, let me furnish you with a few extracts from the reply. In the beginning he laments the. appear ance of such a pamphlet, signed us it is. by such a body ot conspirators against truth, and remarks, 44 that he teds bound by every consideration ot respect for the cause, for my friends, and for my self, to answer this attack, and I sit down to the work not 4 more in sorrow than in anger,' but wholly in sorrow. My reply shall not be vindictive but vindicatory. I must speak with earnestness and confidence, but they are earnestness and con fidence ot an accused man, who knows his inno cence, and knows he cuu prove it. Here let me remark incidentally, that I am embarrassed us I proceed, in regard to the appellation to be given to the authors and signers of theso ? Remarks.' 1 cannot call them 4 Boston Teachers,' because they do not constitute one seventh part of the body. I cannot call them the 'Grammar aud Writing Mas ters,' because the names of all those masters do not appear. Beisg thirty-one in number, I cannot well call a roll of their several names. Circumlu tion is cumbrous, and as they arc sui generis, there is no common noun-substuntive that will designate them. For the sake, at once of brevity and exact ness, I propose to call them the 44 Thirty-one."? This 1 do, without intending thereby the slightest disrespect, and I perceive no objection to it unless indeed, it may render that, hereafter, an unlucky number. This is not a conflict of physical strength otherwise the number of my assailants would be for midable,and right might be overcome by force. ISor is it, to any great extent, a contest of mental power. Were it so, 1 might well be alarmed at a bolt hurled at me from their own citadel, by thirty one men, each rejoicing in his strength. But it is a question of justice,of truth,of mural power, where annihilation awaits the wrong, however haughty or numerous they may be, who uphold its banner. It is not the number of the partnership, but the moral solvency of the firm, with which 1 am concerned ; or, to draw an illustration from their own art?it they are right, they represent a row of thirty-one integers; but if wrong, as 1 can easily show, then they are like thirty-one vulgar fric tions multiplied into themselves, 4 yielding a most I contemptible product.' In alluding to one of the signers (Mr. Win. J. Adams) who committed himself most grossly in ?...ntr.W.o??rjr MKrlUiM, Mr M. llulS CHlmly rcn ! tinuesi 44III a great and good book,! have read of those who strain nt a gnat and swallow a camel; , but, before this, I have never known a man, who, while troubled with such fastidiousness about the insect, could give birth to, and then swallow, the quadruped. I spoke of deficienciesonly?he affirms a totality of ignorance. Are not my stripes upon teachers gentler than the 'laying on of the hands of the presbytery,' when compared with thisl" , Mr. M.then goes on to notice the Prussian systems of education, the Scotch and German schools, us contrasted with ours; and brings lorward the opin ion of some of the most able scholars in our own country and abroad to substantiate his assertions. He then attacks the four corner-stones of "School Discipline"?Authority, Force, Fear and Pain ! the I pitiful instruments which these "thirty-one sages advocate to christainize the youth of America!" Upon this subject Mr. M. remarks?44If ihe teacher is what he ought to fee, he has the resource of a , pure aud lofty example in his own character; and he moves before the eyes of his pupils as a person ification of dignity and learning and benevolence. What a damning sentence does a teaclar pre nounce upon himself when he affirms that he has no resources in his own character, but only in the cowhide and birch, and in the strong arm that . wields them !" And again?"But the 'remarks' claim support from the sayings of Solomon. As ! to this,let me observe that 1 am yet to learn that the , precepts and practices applicable to thatpeculiarpeo pie, the Jews.and totheirstateof civilization,itre to be transferred to our times, without great modifi cations. I do not believe, on the one hand, that his injunctions have all been abrogated, like the , Levilical law of rites and observances, uor, on the other, that they all have the inherent and perpe tually binding force of the decalogue. I have in variably observed that the hardest hearted are the | greatest; quoters of Solomon, both in regard to do mestic and to school discipline." The 41 thirty one," it seems, have most maliciously perverted Mr. M.'s language, as the following will indicate:? 44 This is, in part, what I meant, when, under the feeble similitude of a group of delighted, or wondering children, in a toyshop. 1 referred to the resources of a teacher, when opening to his pupils, one after another, u lew of the interminable realms of knowledge, beauty, and truth. But, of course, I referred to teacheis who had something besides '* a beggarly account of empty" heads, wherewith to satisfy the cravings of a child's curiosity. I was thinking of that wilderness of glories into winch we are burn, and not of mere tops and whittles. I entered the toyshop in the street, to pass from that to the great Temple of the Universe. The 44 Thirty one," followed mc into the toyshop; and there as it appears by the above extract from their 4 re marks,' they remain still?holding on to a text book with one hand, from which to read off their explanations; and, with the other hand, flogging the children through lark of 4 novelties' to occu , py and delight them." The 44 ThiYty-one" chuckle over a mere metaphorical error which they think they have detected in Mr. M , to which he replies, 41 Here, at last, amid a pool of Stygian waters, in capable of reflecting light, one rainbow hue gleams | from a bubble of purer element. It is with reluc tance that I puncture tins air-blown vesicle; but truth dooms its collapse." Finally, after taking tip pepnrntely nil the puerile charges airuyed against him?Ije proflers them peace with one exception, end this is "Barnoni Field," the author of the first section of the 44 Re. marks." (For this pamphlet of the Thirty-one is an olla-pjflrida, concocted by the combined strength of all, teminding us of the ingredients of the witches' cauldron in '4 Macbeth." Apropos of Mr. Field, God help him ! for he surely can't help himself. Procuste's bed, or the persecutions of St. Anthony, were mild when compared to the scorpion-like castig-uion which he has received from the i>en of Mr. Mann. Gentle reader, pa tience one moment, whilst we transcribe the pro cess of pulverization adopted by the dignified writer who was so basely impugned. Mr. M. says after alluding to the ungenerous aud unhappy con troversy, and proffering the 44Thirty-one" the use of his journal in case they wish to push the subject still further." "Hut I must make an exception in regard to one individual until he changes his na ture, or I change my natare, we must continue to dwell on opposite sides of the moral universe. 1 mean the maligner of Mr. George B. Emerson, that pure-minded, truth-seeking man, whom hun drrds of the noble matron# of 1$oh(oii now rcve rence, dec. I mean the asperser ?f Dr. Howe, thet noble and heroic soul, the d< mands of whose youthful admiration for classic Greece could not be satisfied until he had himself imitated the deeds of Grecian heroes upon the Grecian soil; who has since devoted himself to one of the noblest chari ties of the age; and in givisg a universe to Eaura Bndgnian, has given joy to every benevolent heart ol mankind, and sheu light upon some of the darkest problems ot philosophy; I mean the traducer of M'. Pierce, who has done more for the cause of education than the reputed author of that section of the 4 reply* could ever do, though every rtom in his corporiety were converted into a school master, and all should labor Mill the crack of doom.' 1 meau him, who could cut passages from my last report, and shulile them together un til chance should turn up a lying collocation, be yond the power of hisjlown^tupidity to originate, tScc." Finally, Mr. Mann lias so flogged them m masse, that already one (Mr. Adams) has cried for quarter, and retracted his signature! But I have already occupied too much space on this subject, aud thereby 1 shall have to defer mis cellaneous topics in detuil till a future time. The nomination of Josiah Quincy, jr., for Mayor of this city has been confirmed; he will be the po pular candidate.

The contract system, thus Jar, does not a^t like a charm in giving us clean streets. The very re verse is the case. I see no sweepers- no ash rarts ? no carts for collecting offal, Ace. Where i* the promised reform! It remains unfulfilled. They have sent round their paper notices, telling us what the ordinance is about. Ashes! How do they ex pect we can obey the law when they send no carts to collect them! One of their own organs has opened its eyes, nnd acknowledges that the streets are really dirty, nnd threatens the contractors thut it they do not do their duty, according to the specifications in Ihe contract, they will suffer some; but thus far that threat has bad no beneficial effect. The organ also speaks about Mr. Bakewell doing his duty by hav ing it done at their expense, but the sweeps of neither, nor the offal and ash carts of neither, have made their api>earance in either the 4th or fith wards, and so between the two stools, the peopU, the tnx-payers, fall through and sutler, while the contractors and street inspectors pocket their mo ney, and laugh in their sleeve at our Corporation and their paper bullets. Shall we ever have, clean Mreeu! I despair of it until they employ men who have brains enough to devise a proper system, and practise it. That has never yet been done, and no pros|>ect of being done soon.

Remarkaw.k Circ hwstauck.?We were inform, ed yenterday by a fisherman, just in from a cruise, that during his absence he had seen a most singular phe nomenon, the like ol which has ne>er been known in this latitude. The smack in which be wss had been uasnc cessfnl, bnt very law fish having been takta, and on many of the old fishing ground* not one could b? found! In returning along the South shore ot Long Island, their attention was attracted to tha twach,being literally strewed with the bodies of les<l fish Just washed up by the sea. Black fish, cntin?r?. lobsters, and crabs, and many other species which Inhabit our shores *t this season lay pro miscuously on the saad. On examining tho well of tho smack It wm riir "v?rcd that the fish which they had taken were also dead. A* far as tha shoro was examined eestwerd. towsHt Montauk Point, it was found to be co vered allse with dead fl?h. W* are also informed that the smack Carotin*, on Krldey lost, while about fifteen miles from land, passed through a "rip" of the sea (lormeilby adverse tides, we suppose^ and that as far as could l>e seen in either direction the " rip" was filled with dead (1U. noon alter this the welt of the smack was ex atnined, and every fish in it found to be dead. These re markable facts pquire scientific investigation. Similar phenomena hsvehuen observed in the Mediterranean after a voleanie eruption on some of the noighboriag moan tains j and it is quite probable, we think, that the destruc tion to the flnny tribe noticed al.ove was caused by a like eruption it sea, near our coast.?Nnc J.?n4m Hin t, A?i'. 18. ?
