Believing you to be one of the lew that can courageously and fearlessly publish truth without fear of party; and aa our country requires truth, I am induced to send you a description of a meeting that took place in this village last evening, in con sequence of the following notice :? The character o?ihw ^ OmtApostle of Sooial Re term" will be exhibited at the Congreg-"tlon?| 1'> Friday evening, at half p??t six o'olock, by those w know. January a, 1646. In oonsequence, the house was filled to over flowing. At the appointed hour, Win. Rector, an expelled communitist, made the enquiry, whether the as*emblv wished to have a chairman to preside; the answer or vote being in the affirmative, James Cannings Fuller was installed; and on a vote for secretary, William M. Beauchamp received the appoiniment. After some preliminary remarks from the chair, Win. Rector was called tor to ad dress the meeting. He began by Baying he went to the Community about 15 months ago, and stated that he went there as a free agent, not as a mem ber of a secret association?that when he first saw the evilsfbe"was not in a conditionteither in#pocket or wardrobe to leave. He ceusured the presses in this village justly, I think, for not publishing Mi rinda Randall's letter, wherein she had set forth J A. C. in his true light. The first trait in Collin s character that he took up, was his adaptation tor business habits, which Col|ins says ' he is more suitable for than any man in the universe. lo this end he called the attention of the meeting to a loDg advertisement in the village papers, in which he propose? to do blacksmithiogt shoe making, saddle and _ harness making, tailoring, carpentering and joining, masonry, painting, sawing lumber to order, to erect buildings by con tract. This work was promised to be done in a workmanlike manner, and on reasonable terms This advertisement had the tendency to deceive, as at that time they had no sawmill, no forge Tailors they hired, saddlers, and masons they had none of, and of harness makers but one. As to buildings, they had to hire mechanics from the village to put them up. He gave a specimen ot Collins's business habits, with regard to purchasing a wood lot up the lake, hiring chonpen, and con veying his logs on railroad, whereby the logs cost more than the lumber was worth when sawed, be sides having them in an unsaleable situation?his giving his nous, and refusal to pay the same re presenting himself as an agent qf a paper ,c*'led he Social Pioneer, by which he lncurred a debt ot ninety-six dollars, which he drew irom the Trea sury, and never accounted therefor. He the treated of John's benevolence, and adduced two or three cases of his brutal conduct to a Mrs V al v?-ze,, bis unmanly threats to her?his conduct with regard to Edward Elliby, of Philadelphia, who was threatened to be turned out of his room, after having obtained all that could be ob.aincd from him, because he had expressed himself un favorably to his measures?his abusive language to females?his conduct to himself (Rector)?how, in order to get a remuneration for his labor, ne (Rector) had taken a yoke of oxen, wagon, and filteen bushels of wheat, after endeavoring,.in vain, to obtain a settlement with Collins ; which wheat he sold-how Collins, a man that disbe lieved in an appeal to the law, issued a writ ol replevin, and arreBted him (Rector). Spoke of Dr Dwight, and a man, named Beckett, as two of Collins' strenuous supporters. Also of Collins complimentary toast* in regard to the Boiton in vtntigator?a paper which will publish nothing de triinental to his, Collins', interest. O. Kellogg, ol Ohio, then stood up to speak. J. A Collins also stood up, but was received with loud sigaa of disapprobation, hieaea, cnea of down vnih Collins " The chairman interfered, restored order, and requested Collins to sit down. Colknn sat down, with a countenance resembling that ot a demon; aa it appeared, from the expanded veins in his forehead, that he whs wrought up to the highest pitch of excitement. Kellogg then accused Rector | of frequently taking community property. An en quiry from Johu Milton Arnold, whether it wni not a community principle for each to help himsell lo what he wanted, called forth loud applause Kellogg proceeded. (Hissing and ureal uproar ) J. A. Collins stood up. (Hissing, and increaseo cries of "down, down." The chairman called on him to sit down; he refused (The uproar at this crisis was tremendous.) Afier some time! the chairman obtained order, n"d jh" ? aJd ,un?.hi that a nerson who would not observe, ana pay respect to SteSnir, ought not to have a Lear n(, /clreit cheering.) Upon thif> the grentad locate of social reform, with veins that seemed ready to burst from mental excitement, and a countenance the most diabolical I ever saw,, re: sunned his seat, muttering "infamous? infamou*. After Kellogg had done, Collins stood up, ano amidst great confusion, endeavored to substantiate his character as to honesty; attacked the charac . ter of Mr. Johnson, a leading communitist, now in Boston, who left some time since. This was re ceived with every mark of disapprobation, inas much as Johnaon was not present?and also foreign io the object of the meeting. Rector then substantiated his former statement. (Cms for " Prior, Prior ") G. Prior is a respectable man, for many years a resident of ^llacelphta, and of Kte years of this town and Waterloo George Prior then stood up and confiimed Rector ? .tatement-spoke of the creed that was published something over a year ago, as being got up for a ..articular purpose, which was to get rid of Johnson, whose ideas of liberty were more enlarged than Collins'?spoke of Collins' hypocrisy. Collins here stood up to explain. (Great confusion, hisses, &c ) A vote being taken as to whether Collins should r-xoUin or not, was carried in the affirmative? he then spoke of his former good fneods and zealous coadjutors in a manner both sneering and contemptible?of his *o?d deedf as a peace-maker?his good management as a farmer?spoke of the farm as one ol ex traordmary fertility,as it, according to his estimate would produce 70 bushels of shell corn per acre stated that his benevolence wonld not allow him to assist a single individual, but must extend to the mass; and therefore,if he could not assist the whole world he refrained Irom relieving the wants ot the solitary indigent?stated that the advertisements in the village papers had beea inserted under an im pTession that the members of the community would ! nave carried out his intentious, but that he found tnetn intractable. He had no complaint to make i but against those who opposed him in his ambitious i views. Mr. Kennedy, a late member, then spoke; I be said he believed there were many candid and I honest people at Community Place, and he wished 1 the audience to obeerve.that he did not consider J. , A. Collins and community as svnonimoui?that as far as his experience was concerned, he must say, that what Restor had stated of Collins was too true. A Mr. Holmes then took the floor on Mr Kennedy's setting down?he Appears a perfect counterpart of Collins-he endeavored to convince the audience that the differences consisted in mere matters of opinion,and charged Rector with being idle, and that he considered G. Prior had stated that that was not true. Prior hereupon called upon Holmes for a proof. Holmes, after much delibe ration and hesitancy, said he did not think that Collins had invited Prior to theco?""?.11?''i?' ted by Prior; but Prior stated that he had the letter by him, and offered at a future day to produce it, wherein the invitation was given to him by Col lias. Rector charged Collins with uncommunity principles, with regard to his conduct to a man named Jackson. Collins replied that J"ksou was a man with a large family, and .h?ugh he rtid not object to Jackson aa a man, still he would dispense With him to get rid of his family. ^>orcharged him with hyposnsy in his conduct to Mr. Johnson, inasmuch as that he heaped the most opprobrious epithets on his head-but at his parting with him he must salute him witn a kiss This was confirm ed by a lady ptesent, notwithstanding Collins' de ni.i Prior also charged him with being an encou nter of licentious conduct, which Collins did not d^ny but in ? general way-giving the lie to nil PrTh^hmee8tTngdconiinued from half past six to half oast ten, during which it seemed as if hell had been let loose?such hooting, hissings, and yel lings require a more graphic penthan mine to de scribe. Collins was denounced as a complete tyrant in his conduct, though he acted under the cloak of professed love to alt mankind?as a co vetous, and an ambitious man?a perfect atheist, nuder the cloak of a (true worshii>per. Collins de nounced his accusers as being idle and poor ; and, therefore, of no consideration in the public eye.on ireount of their poverty.

He is thought to have aided the loco loco party in Kentucky more, during the last few years, than any other man in th- commonwealth Prom his known habita of industry, his exactness' and his admitted ability, he would make a capital Secretary of the Treasury or Postmaster General; and if the Kentucky mad Indiana locoloeos have any great iufljenee m this matter,Mr. Guthrie will go into the new Cabinet, for they look noon him as eminently qualified lor such a situation His being, in general politics, a new man. is probably no ob jection to him, for here, u efeewtiere, his party seem to wish, for a lime at leaat, to cast ofl the "old hacks."

Foremost, as is the editor of the Herald, in all matters of interest that pertain to the public benefit, and ever vigilant ia detecting and fearlessly ex nosing abuses either of parties, factions, or indivi duals, your correspondent has been happy to sea, in a late number of your paper, that the manmuvring now going on in this place, has drawn to it your attention and notice. Albany, at this moment, I mean, of course, her politicians, are more earnestly at work in directing, through her representatives in Congress, a course of policy for Mr. Polk, than is conceived of by the casual looker on; and this policy is to be adopted, or the influence and support of New York will be drawn from his administration. Yes, the great leaders of the northern and eastern democracy are in thin city, and not in Washington. Tlje political magnetic wires are struck here, and the impression is made at the national seat of government upon these men; renewed and repeated with as much fa cility and success as circumstances may require Do not believe that the late opposition of Mr. L. Stetson atWaahington to the annexation 6t Texas, originated with himself; for with all that gentle man's firmness, he has yet too much sagacity to move in this work of hostility wi-hout first being assured of support in ihis quarter. His speech upon <hat ticket was but the entering wedge in the movement already alluded to, to be followed in rapid succession by P King, and a large, very large majority of the members from this State. You may take the vote upon the late 25tn rule, as a cri rerton of how New York will cast her vote upon the question of annexation. And now for the secrets, and true cause of this opposmon Dix, Hoffman, Barker, J Van Buren, Cassidy, French, and Temple,were the ori ginators of the notorious secret circular, obviously prepared to defeat the democratic party in this State, and which it would have done if it had noi been for the timely exposure of that document, which, as you know, was privately sent to every democrat of influence in the State These men are now ^open, and unceasing, in their hostility to the annexation of Texu Unsupported, their chance for station or in flueiice with Mr Polk they know to be wholly lost; and it is only by drawing around them the semblance, for they cannot get the substance, of s oarty, that they can hi pe to retrieve their iormer standing and influence Flagg insists upon going into Polk's cabinet; but as the open reviler of a principal measure, in fsvo'of which both the coun try and Mr Polk have declared,the task he has the sagacity to see, is no easy one, and hence the. deep interest of this gentleman in the late election of an anti-Texas speaker and officers to the Assembly, but in which he was defeated, and his present gi gantic exertious to get two United States senators, anti-Texas, in which he will again be beaten ; but having secured the representation from this State in Congress, the attempt will be made, through it, to impress upon the* mind of the President elect that New York is anti-Texas, and hence pave the way for Mr Flagg into the cabinet, and the Sedgewick and Bryant influence for the spoils of government. The object is to embarrass Polk by the opposition of New York to annexation, leaving, however, as an alternative, a compliance with the terms above mentioned. . . _ If New York can prevent it, through the influ ence which I have given yon, Texas will not be annexed this session, but will be left over to form the leading feature in the Polk administration. You will perceive that Croswell, with his usual sagacity, is opposed to these men, nnd is the an nexation champion in this quarter. I am confident if Mr Polk will but invite, immediately, Fiaag, or Young, or Hoffman, into his cabinet, that all oppo sition will at once step at Washington, from the New York representatives; but for the honor of, ! the State and credit of the country, it ia to be sin cerely hoped that this faction may be left to work out its own end, and afte'r its own fashion. But littie was done yesterday in either branch of the Legislature. The bill, for a special session of Oyer and Terminer, which was before the House, passed yesterday by a very decisive vote, owing to the late receipt of important papers from the autho rities of Columbia county. In the Senate, Mr Porter offered a resolution of a most searching na 'ure, calling upon the New York inspector of pot a.nd pearl ashes to report immediately, and under oath, the amountof fees received for 1844; number of barrels inspected, from whom receivtd, ts whom sold or delivered; and every perquisite directly or indirectly obtained, therefrom. Rumorstates here that thia will bring out some strange disclosures, which may not be very pleasant to the parties con cerned. Veritas. Albany, Jan. 12, 1846. An extraordinary rumor has been running the rounds of this city since last evening, to the effect, that the Hon. Silas Wright has taken open and de cided grounds against both of our present Senators now at Washington. If this be true, there can be but little risk in makisg the prediction that his present position is the highest to whieh he will ever attain in this country. Those persons who hava hitherto regarded Mr. Wright as a prudent and sagacious statesman, and politician, cannot nut be surprised at this extraordinary and suicidal movement. Here, in this city, all is surprise and confusion, while the Barm y GaffVry party are running wild with joy, at the certainty, bythis move, of their final triumph The friends of Dick inson and Foster, are indignant at this volunta ry act of hia Excellency, and threaten equal retaliation. If the report be confirmed the democratic party cannot hope for success in their State elections for years to come, and it may be the instrument of their defeat on the Presiden tial question m 1848 And this coarse of the Go^ vernor's has been adopted at the earnest request of Flagg, Dix, and Young, and is a clear demonstra tion, from that party, at Albany, against the an oexaoon of Texas New York, it is generally conceded, elected Mr. Polk, not these men, as their action by confidential circular has charly shown ; and what they could not make good by treachery, they now hope to accomplish through the aid and instrumentality of the name and person of Silas Wright. What will the southern democ racy think of this movement 1 and what wilI the party generally say of Ul Can Mr, Polk look upon this act other ihan an open opposition to his admi nistration 1 Hostility to the present senators is made on the ground of their annexation views,and Silas Wright has stepped in to accomplish their defeat and prevent the consummation of the act, so far as the influence of two United States Senators ean be made to accomplish it, if elected. I forbear fui ther comments at this time, leaving the subject as it is. until the statement is sustained or denied by MrWnght himself, which will pro bably be to morrow, as I understand that a com mittee will wait upon him in relation to the matter this afternoon. By a resolution of the Senate this morning, Saturday is selected as the day lor the election of the two vacant, or about to be vacant, Senatorial seats. One ol the editors of the Morn ing Newt of your city, Mr. Tilden. is here, to gether with the eomewhstcelebrated Indian agent, Mr. Edmonds. Mr. Tilden, it is understood, is to be the adviser of the New York appointments, and Mr. Edmonds is to secure (at least, so he says) the situation ol the Judgeship of the Circuit Court, in the place of Mr. Kent. Should he get the ap pointment, it will be from sympathy that it is oestowed, Mr. Edmonds being one of the Circu lar" subscribers, and opposed to the annexation ot Your Ex Consul to Morocco, the Hon. Thomas N. Carr, is here, but upon what bouineus is not known. He ia very active, and in secret meeting with the prominent men ol this city. It is more than probable that he is working to get his early friend, Mr Van Buren, aprotnted Senator in place of one of the gentlemen now holding that situation, r>ut if thi? be ?<), liis labors will in all probability be vain, as it is not to be supposed that Mr. Van Bu ren will content to again enter the arena of acuve '*The"Houae to-day adjourned after twenty min utes session, na business being before it.

The Legislature of this State haa juat held an " informal" session, for the purpose of caucussing tor a U. S. Senator, in the place of Mr. Merrick, in which Revcrdy Johnson received thirty votes, only seven votes beneath the number absolutely necea- I aary for a choice. The general impression is, that the matter has hereby been settled, and that the next caucus will determinate with his election. The strongest ground on which his friends have urged hia nomination, was his " princely hospi tably," though we think the whole public life of I (his man could have furnished them with more for cible, and less beggarly, arguments. His strongest competitor is William Price, of Alleghany county, whose principal chance consists in having been all hia life an " incarnate" whig, whilst Johnson was I once a Jackson-man. A natural history of the Baltimore Bar, which we promised you, though exceedingly intererting in respect to the composing elements, talents, divi I aions, tub divisions, and ahadowinga of thia honor able body, seemed to us, after a " second thought," at present inexpedient.

[Correspondence of the Herald.] Ponce, Poeto Rico, Dec. 16, 184*. Progress of the Island-Its Statistics and Resources. Friend Bennetti? You never seem to get any intelligence from this fertile island; the climate is the finest imaginable for invalids afflicted with pulmonary affections. Your northers do not reach us as at Havana; the temperature at this season is delightful. I send you a bundle of papers from the capital, 3t. John's, P. R., that you may see the beneficial reforms adopted by our enlightened and energetic Captain General, Count Mirasol, and under the in fluence of whose politic administration a new era has opened upon this island. He is a man of stern integrity and honor; a severe disciplinarian. He is extremely solicitous about the removal of re strictions to open the field to individual enterprize in trade and agriculture, and to put in motion the wheels of industry that have been clogged here from the want of a spirited man like Count Mira sol. By said papers you will see the following impor tant measures lit. An ordinance abolishing th* axport duty of 3 per cent, called the war subtidy, imposed in 1S38 i 3d. An ordinance(taking.olf all duties on the expoita tion of cattle, and granting many facilities to persons en gaged in thia bnain>aa, natlva as well as foreign ; which immunities extend also to vessels employed ia that branch of trade. Nete ?This is highly important, as the rearing of cat. tie ia one of the prinoipal sources of wealth to the island : it occupies a large number of persons of small mean* and the profit* are thus di-tributed to that laboring claaa ; the busineaa had fallen t fif from the reatrictiuna imposed. 3d. An ordinance to take the census and to draw up a statistical account of each department of the island. The individual* appointed to thia commisaion, by aaid ordi nance, are the aid* de camp of the Oovernor, Col. Caaa mayor, Capt. Chinchilla and Lieut Pared a. 4?h. A very Just ordnance, allowing pay to the militia, should they tie called out on any emergency to preserve the tranquillity of the island. Several other salutary measures have been adopted; the count offers every facility and pro tection to foreigners who may wish to establish themselves hare. He is at present occupied with the gold mines of Luquiflo and a new one juat die covered ; he is organizing a company to work them, what are vour American speculators about) Should this meet the eye of some enterprising and energetic New England capitalists, or any other active and spirited American, I can assure them it is worth ihetr while to make inquiry and look to ?aid mines We foreigners take great interest in being cor rectly informed as to affairs in the United States; this is difficult to obtain, from the party spirit that predominates in your respective party journals.
