[Corrwpendeuct of tho Herald.} RocnsTmt, 88th December. frogrmof Rochetttr?Trade?Flowr?Bin, Sorrow and Speculation. I am gtad to find that the intelligent people of thia country are beginning to appreciate the value of an independent press. Aa a true and faithfbl re cord of paaaing events, your paper muat be of im mense value to the future historian of thie country; and to any one wishing to preserve valuable public documents for future reference, a file of the He rald is, indeed, a treasure. May your success be equal to your unfailing efforts to make your paper what it is, via: the most ably conducted newspaper in the United States. But, methinks I hear you ask, I" What of Rochester 1 How are you pro gressing in that precocious city of thirty years oldl" A reply to your questions would occupy more than this sheet, and might tire the patience of your read ers. The course of Rochester is yet onward. "At timet I almost thought, indeed, She must have slackened in her speed ?" But no; in spite of panics of all kinds, Rochester is going ahead, as Clay says, " by the inevitable laws of population." We now number 25,000 souls, disconsolate Whigs and rampant Locofocoe included. Vast numbers of the old craxy tene ments, built by the first settlers, are giving place to splendid brick edifices, five eteriee high. The ventre of the city is becoming more compact, and * crowded daily with teams loaded with produce from the surrounding country. A new road has been constructed the past season to the steamboat landing on the west aide of the river. Thia road is a great curiosity in its way; it is nearly a mile long and is out in the perpendicular bank ot the ri ver with a descent so gradual as to be a safe and easy road for carriages and leaded teams. It is near where the famous old Cart hags bridge crossed the river, and in the vicinity of some of the most picturesque scenery in this state. For thia improve ment we are mainly indebted to the energy and perseverance of Col. Alexander Kelsey, one of our most respected and enterprising citizens. One of the most singular facts in this day of speculations is, that within the limita of this city, the Geneaee river is at thih moment pouring its floods over a nel?lf- perpendicular fall of more than one hundred feet, a' "hout turning a single wheel, or propelling machinery of any kind ! Such is the fact, as to what is palled the Lower Falls. This hint may be of service to some of the capitalists who read your paper. For an account of the state of society, morale, literature. See , I muat refer vou to some future communications. Truly yours, Z. Cincinnati. [Correspondence of the Herald.] Cincinn ati, Dec. 25, 1844. Fathion ? Thealricalt ? Fight i ? Duel* ? Ball* - Beauty?Pork and Mo/atue. J ? G. Bennett, Esq. Sir : It may not be uninteresting to a portion of your I readers to learn a little of what is going on in the Western Empire City during the holidays. First, i we have " the People's Theatre," as a source of I amusement, in imitation of Niblo's, but as far be low Niblo s as the earth's beneath the sua, not on ly m point of talents, but in decency and good or-1 der?a sort of Bowery " as it used to was." Then the National Theatre," the neatest, prettiest theatre in the United States, the St. Charles not fxcfpted. There is not thai gorteousness about it which marks the St. Chnrlea,bu?for exqTsfte^UI in its decorations, it stands unrivalled, with a com pany of respectable order of talent?nothing bril liant. And last though not least," stands the ??l,V?Sduci^ bjr th? fwf?med leader of the Fly Market Rangers." Last evening the ball was interrupted by a fight-one of the most desperate of the season?quite a creditable affair. No less than twenty to thirty attacked one man for using improper liberties with one of the lady visi tants Bowse knives and pistols w<*e the order of the evening. He was m-wt cruelly cut in every way. JHe hails from Louisiana. Last evening al so, a gentleman was shot by a friend of his wife's Quite an affair. Rumor says that he has two wives?one here and the other in your city. He is loon here " the keeP?r of ? bowling saT Our pork packers are in quite a stew in regard to funds. Tbe banks refuse to discount the best time and sight bills on New York, Boston, Philadelphia and New Orleans The necessary funds to carry on the business cannot easily be obtained. Many of the drovers are packing on their own account. Pork commands $8 20 to ?3 25. There is every prospect of the Ohio being closed by ice, unless we have a change in the weather. There is now at I this point but 5 feet 9 inches in the channel and ice running. We have not had an arrival from Pitts burgh since last Thursday. Many of our best New Orleans boats have laid up. awaiting for a rise in the river as well as in the prices of freight. At this I time there are but two boats in port tor New Or leans, and they will not be able to take out mere than one-half of their tonnage. Business of all kinds dull. A Loiterer on the Banks.

The papers are far, however, irom oleanna 1 what was obscure in the matter. Secondly : Mr Dour lass has proposed a joint resolution, styled for "the re annexation"of Texas, in conformity with thetreatvbv which, in 1*13, we acquired Louisiana. A bill lor the organization of a government in the Ter ri ory of Oregon aiao has been reported to the House from the Committee on Territories. It provides for a regular Territorial Government, by an Execntiva officer, a Lis is lature or two branches, and a Judiciary, and a military occupation by forts at points within th# Territory, and lines of military stations along the routes loading to it The jurisdiction thus aaaumed includes ail between lati tude 4J degrees and latitude 44 degreee and 49 minutes The annual report of the Superintendent of that great f"' wotk, the Coast Survey, has been submitted.

SO J From Hudson, we have no inteltigenee later than the departure of the Emme't Guards from this city on Saturday. They doubtless reached Hudson on the evening ot that day. The Eastern railroads are not in operation on Sunday. The disaffected last week seised a field piece belonging to an artillery company at Germantowa. It stiu remains concealed. We learn, that on Saturday the Sheriff of Rens selaer, through Capt. Willard, of the Troy Artil lery, made a requisition upon the Governor, for arms and ammunition to defend the jail against rn apprehended attempt to rescue the prisoners. Three field pieces, a number of muskets, and a quantity of ammunition, were accordingly for warded forthwith from the Arsenal. Information from Greene, received at the Adju tant General's office, states, that although all was yet quiet in that county, it was considered neces sary to organise a force for active service, and to furnish arms and ammunition. Several ot the militia officers are anti-rent, and one or two bad refused to obey a requisition to be in readiness; but generally the feeling among the military, it supplied with arms and munitions, was to act with efficiency and prompitude. From Ulster, information has also been received at the Adjutant General's office, that two esmpa at the Adjutant Oeserai's office, that two esmpa nies, the Rondout Guards, Capt Suydam, and the Ulster Greys, Captain Osterhout, were holding themselves in readiness to march at a moment's warning. The writer adds?" the acts of the anti renters seem to furnish cause for alarm, or at least for efficient preparations. They had a meeting in Woodstock, on Christmas, about 500 present, but only 81 Indians. They are becoming very bold, ana rash in their disposition, to intimidate those who do not act with them." Orders have been or will be issued from head quarters, to furnish troops,'arms, and ammunition at these and other points, and wherever necessary, to vindicate the laws. It will be seen by our extracts, that the Sheriff of Rensaalaer county has made several other arrests of persons, supposed to be implicated in the Grafton murder?making in all, nine. It would seem, also, fiom what is said of the results of the examina tion now in progress at Troy, that a witness on Saturday identified one of the prisoners as the per son who fired the pistol which gave the fatal wound. [From the Troy Budget, Dec. 38 ] 1, thi The Sheriff of our county arrested, this morn ing, Ira Allen, Esq , Ira B B Ford, Jabez Haikes, John P. Maravilie, and Eliaha P. Burdick, who are suspected of having been implicated in the murder of Elijah Smith. They are all in custody m this city We have learned no particulars con nected with their arrest, but presume it was effect ed without opposition. The examination of witnesses summoned by or der of Coroner Betts, to testify in relation to the murder of Elijah Smith of Grafton, on the 16ih in stant, commenoed yesterday. A reporter from this office was in attendance, and we have before us full notes of the testimony elicited. As we ques tion the propriety of making public the testi mony drawn out in a preliminary examination of | this kind, we have concluded not to copy from our aotes But two witnesses were examined yester day?Nathaniel P.Martin,an uncle of the deceased, ana Dr. James Christie, who assisted at the exam ination of the body of Smith, and who exhibited the ball which inflicted the fatal wound. The ex amination was resumed at halt past 9 o'clock this morning. Up to the time when our paper went to press (10 o'clock,) but one additional witness had been sworn. He identified the prisoners as having been present at the murder,and expressed the opin ion that one of them discharged the piBtol at the deceased. [From Albany Journal, Deo. 28.] Our neighbors of Columbia county, and espe cially of the city of Hudson, are just now, the " The fir * "observed of all observers." The first inquiry at morning, noon and night, is for the news from the seat of war. We give a summary of such rumors and facts as have reached us in a sufficiently au thentic form for publication. As express arrived in oat city yesterday, from Hudson, with an application from the Sheriff of Columbia county, and the Moyor nod oi the city of Hudson, for an additional military foree. The object of the re-enforcement was un derstood to be, partly for the protection oi the city againal an apprehended and threatened attack from the " Indiana," bat, in case their services should not be needed for that purpose, then to accompany and aid the Sheriff in his attempt to arrest the per sons implicated in the murder of Riphenburgh. We understand that the express brought intelli gence that the Sheriff had beeu forcibly restated in his efforts to make such arrests, by a very formid able party of Indians. It was also asserted that the authorities had received information from a source entitled to entire credence, that a forcible attempt to lescue the prisoners, now in jail, would soon be made. Immediately after the reception of this informa tion and requisition, Gov Bouck held s consulta tion with Messrs. Wright and Gardiner, the Gover nor and Lt. Governor elect, the result of which was the adoption of the suggestions and recom mend&tions ol the Governor elect, that efficient stept be at once taken to pat down the rebellion. Gov Bouck accordingly proceeded to assume the responsibility of the perlo lormance of his duty. The Burgesses Corps, now on duty at Hudson as volun teers, were put under ordeis from Head Quartern, and the Emmet Guards, a new bat efficient corps, numbering some 00 or 60 privates, wete also de tailed lor active service, and left for Hudson to day at one o'clock. The Adjutant General was also directed to issue his order for the attendance if a company of cavatry from the city of New York, and they will doubtless be in Hudson as soon as time will permit. We rejoice that theee efficient measures have at last been adopted. An earlier period would have been more satisfactory to the friends of law and order, but better late than never. We are glad that the Governor elect haa thus foreshadowed hia own course as soon as he shall be vested with the robes of office. [Fran Tray Whig, Deo. 28.] A gentleman who visited Hudeoo on Thursday, informs as that Dr Boughtoa, alias Big Thunder, has msdea olesn breast ef It, and ravealed to the Distriot Attorney the names of all the parsons in Columbia county, con cerned in the anti-rent movement. The Sheriff and his deputies have accordingly been very busily engaged for the last three or four days in arresting the persons thus designated. The names oI these persons not being dis closed to any but the polioe officers, renders their arreet a very easy matter. Oreat trepidation prevails throughout the Indian ranks ; no man knows bat his turn may come next Their meetings have all been discontinued, and order onoe mete reigns in Columbia. The Sheriff of Albany county was in Hudson ou Thurs day, for the purpeee ef obtaining from Boughfon the nsmea of the principal Indians in that county. He will donbtlees be Instructed by the Distriot Attorney to pro coed against them alter the fashion adopted in Columbia. Big Thunder, since hia arrest, haa exhibited the native pusillanimity of his dispositionproving himself to be as arrant a coward as ever swaggered in borrowed plumage. Albany.

We have a little later news from Hudson, which you may receive via Hudson, but ne vertheless I will give it to you. On Saturday night about midnight, a detachment of the Burghetaes Corps, twenty-five in number, under command of Lieut. Townaend, of this city, accompanied the sheriff of Columbia about 16 miles into the coun try. They surrounded the house of the men they wished to arrest, and succeeded in taking two pri soners, one of whom was found in the garret, and the other attempting to escape. On their return, several of theludians were seen hovering around,one ol whom being ordered to stop, refused, and was \ fired upon, and is supposed mortally wounded ? The detachment returned with their prisoners in safety to Hadson yesterday. This is the substance of Gen. King's despatch to Gov. Bouck. The Attorney (general has again gone to Troy, to attend the examination of the persons confined there, nine ia anmber. As yet nothing has been done in this county. I have just seen sheriff Hat terman, who informed me that he visited Hudson on Thuisday to get the names of the Indians in i his county. He haa no warrants, and none have been issued as yet for the arrest of any one here, but he goes out to-morrow or next day, without a posse, to serve civil process. Tne Adjutant General has just informed me that the three remaining corps in this city are to hold themselves in readiness to move at a minute's notice, as also two companies in Schenectady. Gapt.

It in fair to state, that to the latest accounts Sir Charles Metcalfe's new cabinet has worked wall. The majority in their favor, in the honne, has not increased, but a working majority of ten, may fairly be reckoned upon.
