This iscertainly|rather singular, for the avidity with which the rival sects ure accustomed to seize upan any thing to the disadvantage ol each other is tolerably well Known, or at all events has been pretty well illustrated on various occasions. The paper in this city which is generally regarded as the org tu of Bishop Hughes, however, takes up tha matter and handles it -ithout much ceremony It has a long article on the subject?in which we think we c m discern the traces oi an.ecclesiastical hand?abusing the book, the Court, the Bishop, the witnesses and every body. The book it charade, mesas "most disgusting and most disreputable to all the pirues involved." The writer then proceeds to speak ot the case itself:?

That 'hey have no more right to a bliDd credulity in fa vor i f'heir testimony than men hnve, and that,so far as regard* the present case, their test mony at this time con verts their si'ence for so long a p?ood into an imputa tion which will have its proper infltt-nce on the Mien' ju Igmei t i-t l*ast. of the public at large In looking at tin- proceedings of the court so cnlled, there is nothing calculated to diminish the disgu>t excited by ih" chnrges fmch is iht* manner in which the Freeman's Jour nal spf/Ua of the case, and certainly the remarks rela'ive to the l>ng silence of the Bishop's accu sers are not altogether uncalled for. We had nl lud-d to that point more than once And nothing, in our opinion, gives more painful evidence ot the 8'ranse laxity of morula and manners nmougjt th*' so-called strictly religiouscircles, than this f act, that a Bishop of the church wns accustomed, in his iiiter coutse wiih the females of his flock, to take such questionable liberties wi'h iheir persons, and yet not a murmur of disapprobation in any quarter, un til iIip circumstances were sei^d upon by the agents of ? clique to < fT-ci the destruction of the Bihoi. Tnis view of the matter cannot be too frequently or loo forcibly presented to the public. Bishop Onderdonk is not the only clergyman who has offended against the laws "t moral and virtuous society, by indulging in latnt liaiities wi'h the females whom he met. T'ten must he something wrong in the social condition of the religious community, or such conduct could not b" tolerated in a single instance. And this is, indeed, the sad reality. We have seen ut " cam| meetings" and"'revival meetiugs," till over the country, how lamentably pure nod undefiled lelt gion has been disgraced by the indecent and im mord conduct not only of the "disciples" but ol those who call themselves Christian ministers. It was *u pes d in moat quarters that all this laxity ol morals and manners was confined to those itineraui hypocrites and impostors, and to the indiscriminate gatherings which they were accustomed to address; but the development in the case before us, show that '.he judgment of charity was in this instance entirely at fault. Mrs. Beare stated that theBbhop k ssed her in the presence of h<r mother, in such u manner as to leave the impression that it was a custcinary mode ol salutation. Such literal and practical adherence to the precept of Paul to Timo thy, is by no means, we have every reason to be lieve, a rare virtue amongst the clergy of all de nominations. The social condition of the churches may thus be easily guessed at, and it is this view ?I the a-e liiat we wish to keep before the public, tor wh trust yet to see salutary influence exerted in th a direction, by the developments ofThis extra ct -j nary trial. It is as if the light of day had been let in upon the community of "the saints," and that is the first step to a thorough cleansing. Not the least inguUr and instructive of the de velopni'-nts made by the " Book of the Trial, i that given to the public in the " opinions" of th< Bi-hopt. We do not know which most to con demn?the canting slang, or the party teeling S m? ?d these holy men of God utter in the same breath the most s inging expressions of personal hatrt d to the accused, and the most pious prayers to Heaven for tne good of the ( hurch ! Tiie Bishop i in lavor of the accused have certainly less of the slang than the others, but they are al evidently partial judges. But we are most struck and most pained by the elaborate efforts of the fa thers who condemned the Bishop, not merely to justify their sentence, but to cover htm with infamy and shame, and to close the door ngauist any public sympathy for him. Oh how unlike the meek and lowly Jesus! How un like the fishermen of Gallilee ! How unlike the early fathers of the church, who loved not then lives unto the death, and whose conduct towards each other was such tha' even the enemies of th' f iith w-re constrained to call out?"B- hold 1 how these Cnns'ians love one another !" Als* ! hie? 1 when trie Bishops and fathers of the church act to such a m toner, ia it any wonder that the lovely frttt's "f peace and chtrtty have well nigh ntttrly perished in th*- church- s 1 Csrrsix RrixDbKS?'-Ve insert in this day'spn (??r, a very curious and interesting sketch of ifu lii- <f iherenovnd Caput in Rynd-rs?the celc br t'ed Don ttinvanni of the modern democracy ?

It appears to have been a congrega tion oi "black spirits and white," ofali sorts and siz -, actuated by various impulses and strange ideas, but all uniting in one universal sentiment ol bitter and unrelenting hostility to the Southern in stitution, and the existing social condition of that portion of the confederacy. There is a great deal of talk and bluster, and bravado and abuse, in the Norther*' prints, respecting the conduct of the nul lihers of South Caroliua? the chivalry of Quattle bum?and the disunionists of that part of the coun try. No doubt under the bright sun of the South, men in Carolina, who are sulu ring from the ini quities of uuequal taxation, and unequal laws, will occasionally express their feelings wiih some exag geration and violence, but thise expressions ate not by any means to be taken literally. There is no quarter of the Union, in which a more devoted spirit ol loyalty to the republic exists than itt the Sooth?now here else would the hostile attempts of a foe be more promptly and energetically met Th's every *>ne must acknowledge Such is 'he passing sentiment of disunion or nul lific.ition as developed in the South; but what is it in Faui uil Hull? There it assumes a much dark er hu?*, and a far more dangerous character. We see in the recent convention there the. develop ment of sentiments and principles, in the first birth, which, in process ol time, if not checked by the pood sense of the Union, will destroy^ our whole social fabric. Look at the resolution pro posed by Garrison?a resolution rqu.valent to a dissolution of that fair fabric, which we call the glorious Union' Look at every sentiment and every principle and every purpose developed by those speakers, breathing throughout a degree of fierceness and hostility to the social institutions * I the South, increased by the very iguorance which they discover regarding the naiure and character of these institutions, which leaves all the mere vaporing about disunion in the South, irntneasu r-aKlu IiaKi ml Hut the moat dangerous feature of the whole of that Convention, is developed in the declaration made by Mr. O F. Adams, the son of John Quiocy A lams, who is represented as having recommend ed that the fquestion of Slavery should be intro duced into ail future political contests, and particu larly in the free States, so as to divide them on that is.-me and destroy the present organization of par ties. Such a purpose, if carried out, would as cer tainly lend to the destruction of the Union as the laws of nature produce their invariable results. For some singular movement of this kind?the destruc tion of the present arrangements of parties and their reconstruction on the principles of the Abolition ists?we have indeed been prepared, as well by the speeches of Mr. Webster and John Q. Adams as by the proceedings and declarations ol the. present Convention. The Abolition party, numbering at he last election in the free States over 62 000 voters, will form the nucleus, no doubt, of a new organi z t'ion of the Whig forces in the North, with thi* broud principle of action?the destruction of Shive ry at the South by the legislation of Congress. W. will s^e how this movement will be followed up boih by the Whig party and the Abolitioniets in the tree States?we will see what mav be the tutnre course of John Quincy Adainsand Daniel Webster in Congress, for it is very evident that there is some general attempt now in contemplation to form u union between the Abolitionists and the Whigs, for the purpose of regulating the policy of the Union and deleating the Democracy in all future contests Danger Ahead.?Even the National Intelli gencer of Washington, appears to be alarmed at the present aspect of our foreign relations, now menaced by the progress of the Oregon and Texas questions in both Houses of Con gress. This alarm is beginning to pervade ntan> other minds, besides tliose of the editors of the Intelligencer. But we do not apprehend any im mediate war either with Mexico or England,should both these measures pass the present Congrest. Mexico has enough to do within her own limits, torn aft she is by contending factions, which de stroy her energy and power. In regard to Engiand, we have a bond of indemnity on her good beha vior in the shape of annnal imports and exports to the amount of nearly sixty millions of dollars A. suddl-n interruption of the commercial relation? between the United States and England, or the stopp ige of the cotton supplies furnished by us to the British manufactories would most seriously en danger the domestic peace of that kingdom, ren tiering it still more difficult to manage than Ireland. We thus possets in the cotton trade a power over England that keeps her in peaceful relations whether she will or not. Anxiety for the Absent Packets ?There is a great deal of anxiety now felt for the safety ol the packet ships United Slates and England. They have been at sea over two months, and sailed from England tn time to be in the terrible gale of the 11th and 12 h of December, which caused so much devastation from one extremity of the Atlamic to the other. In this gale, it will be recollected, the packet ship Dorchester was totally lost. The United States and England have valuable cargoes on hoard. They had not, we are glad to learn, many passengers. The England, we believe, had none in hercabins. In the United States, if we mistake not, the Rev. Weir Tulloch, a Scotch clergyman, was a pafsenger. This person com muted forgery at Perth and fled, intending to reach America, by taking pasaage in the United States This is the only passenger on board of her to our Knowledge. These two packets were very streng ships. They were built here, and commanded by good and ex perienced men. C,plain Brittoo, ot the United - fates, is a brother of ihe comnnnder of the Gla fiator, and alsoV the cap.ai,, ?f ,he R((th.BIer who saved .he lives of those on board the Dorchei' -er, which, singularly enough, w?. wrecked in .he h V j'u" f-Uher destroyed or badly disables he United states.

Ei.licottvillb, January 37, 1845 We are in th? midst ot an anti rent war. On F'iday cv-ning last the shetiff despatched time deputies to Dtiich rlill. tor the purpose of arresting some of the rinc leaders, who attached the sheriti and his deputies tut June, who were then for the p rpoae of executing a writ of possession Some eight or ten were in dicted at the Juno court for the offence, but no uttemp' was made to arrest them until Kr day night last ? In the mean time, liom certain indie tions a d threat thrown out, the sheriff' thought best to order nut a strong force to protect 'he jail from attack, should any of than he captured. Th? urrang. m-nt wns that they shout-' make a quick trip nnd return by 0 o'clock on Saturdai mornintr. The wholeday p?.>?rd, however, without their returning, and hearing no ti lings from them, fears wer entertsined that they had been captured themselves An.' as the orders of the sheriff" were promptly obeyed by the rit!7.ens of adjoining towns, in flocking to his standard, i email detachment of six men. under Cel. ElMdge, war tent out to ascertain the difficulty; but before they re turned, the deputies first sent out came back with one prisoner, having ca; tured him alter a d, sperule encoun ter with some 150 of the gang. Col E. however went through the settlement a short time af er, and found n large collection at the school house, and being ordered t halt, which orders he disobeyed, was fired upon w.ti eight rifles. He returned the fire, and came on his way home Whether axiv were injured we are unable to say Last evening 'here were probably 600 people in the vil lage, 300 or 400 with arms, ready ti act tin ter the sheriff at 13 o'clock last nigh', about 350. under th - command ol Gen Htintly, proceeded with the sheriff to the scene ci disturbance, leaving about 300, wi'h three pieces of can non, to protect the jail and land-cftlces The report oi e cannon was heard this morning at six, in the direction ?' Dutch Hill, probably one the anti-renters have obtained from Cuba. They are strong in numbers on the Hill,an-' what the result will be I am unable to say.

Quarrels among* the Forty Thieves.-?We have been very much amused during the past weei. with the qnanels between the Plebeian and th Morning Newt, otherwise better known under th? soubriquet of Slamm, Bang & Co., and Patrick O'Sullivan 5c Co. These quarrels are only thi commencement of a long fight between the con tending factions of the New York Democracy. 1 has come down from the days of " lang syne," and will undoubtedly exercise a considerable in fluence on the division of the spoils in this quartet under Mr. Polk's regime. The history ot then quarrels?theirorigin?their literary, philosophical, political, and financial phenomena?would be in tensely amusing, nnd will furnish material for fu ture paragraph#!or the edification of our readers The recent amusing outburst, in which they cal1 each other liars and vagabonds, is but the first brush in a desperate encounter for " tile spoils " Theatres.?There was a good attendance at the Park amphitheatre laat evening, notwithstanding the cold weather, which was a very powerful in ducement tor every body who could to stay at home. The performances were, as usual, classical and elegant.

The Bowery is playing up its stock of old melo dramas, to tolerable houses, and the Chatham hat got up the "Chimes," of Boz?a sort of Chatham street edition of the " Christmas Carol." On the whole, our city theatricals, with the exception tf Welch's company of splendid equestrians, are rather small business.

The clouds of dust, palpable and penetrating, hav< been most disagreeable to all who were obliged to!traverse the streets.

Mr. Lee, it wj be remembered, was President of the Board of A sistaut Aldermen some two or three years ago.

After a terribly rough voyage, we arrived safe ly at Naples. Head winds ami head aches almost constantly, rough ehort seas, but by no means short ness of sea stores?noise, confusion and oaths in stead of appetites. Not a bottle of champagne was touched for the first fortnight. We arrived at Gibraltar in time to hear the bombardment o! Tangier by the Prince de Joinville's rquadron. A' Marseilles I saw nothing to admire more than the line French beds we found there. There are no beds like French beds, no dinner like a good Eng lish dinner, no chair to compare with an Americat rocking chair, and as for a blazing coal fire, what can surpass it. From Marseilles I travelled her? by steamboat along the Mediterranean, touching at Leghorn, Genoa, Ctvita Vecchia. Naples h densely populated, even to inconvenience. Thi Via Toledo, at Nuptes, presents one continued throng of persons aud carriages from morning ti! night, equal to what is seen in Broadway on tie Fourth of July; and, go into whatever afreet yoi1 will it is almost alike in this respect. It is no easy matter to relraia from getting in a passion atit swearing at every one that runs against you, ot vou run against?from grumbling at every thinj. vou get and cannot get, end wishing to God y<< bad never come. Getting nut of bed in tin morning, aud putting your feet on the ston. Honrs, reminds mo of the New York carpets: tnd the dinners we get at the restaurauis are com posed principally of rnaccaroni. soup, vegetables, iud sour wine. There are no ovsiers here, am lor that reason I wish for them the more; bui, instead ot them, fowls, like so mnoy thread. .tasted together; meat, like a blue-bag after han ervice, and bread as close, as a miser's pocket - And yet living is dearer here than in New York which perhaps can hardly excite surprise when the v st population i? considered. Apartments, too, art extremely high. The climate here nnd at Palernu (of which I shall afterwards speak,) is mu:h abnu' "of Ne he same in variableness as that of New York, vei less cold, but damper, as it rains every other day during the three winter months incessantly. 1 nave had an eternal head-ache from the first mo m-nt ot my landing, with the din and noise whicl beset my ears Every one strives to make mon noise than any other body; there is no such thing is ?peaking in the ordinary way ; instead of that. ieop|e prefer roaring out at the top of their voicer whether in th' ir houses, the street, or theatre. About three weeks ago f returned from a visit t? Palermo, which is about seventeen hours sail fron Saples.

A good part of my time at Palermo, as here, wat occupied in grumbling at every thing, and partieu larly at sot being able to get what I wished of Eft -tlish and American luxuries; and often I have sak I would fain be hack in New York, for in thes ?arts they have nothing fit for christians.

R. Peters, Jr., attache to the late embassy, and agent of the National und America., lusii'iites, Septem ber, 1844?? 1 was assisted by Mr Cushing's influence us min ister, aud Dr P-irket's knowledge ot the language and personal influence, an much as 1 could be. The education of the Chinese rend'rs them very cautious and auspicious, and, having been takes iu by foreigners at virions tinien, they have reuaon tube and are particularly suspicious of them, und appear unable to appreciate the motives of persons visiting the country for any other purposes than those of trade. The mand irtns are the only acces sible persons who cuu make or allow changes and improvemen's; and depending entirely upon the will of the Emperor, who promotes and degrades them et pleasure, and having little feeling iri com mon with the people whom they govern, ns they are never appointed to office in their native pro vinces, they enrich themselves us rapidly as possi ble, regardless of every thing hut their popularity with the Emperor, who appears to be quite easily and often imposed upon. Notwithstanding the bursting of their miserable cannon during their difficulties with the English, and the knowledge th y obtained of the superiority of European arms and mffitary skill, arid the effi ciency of -team frigates, th y still appear disposed to foliow their old policy of buying off, in case of dif ficulty, cod humbugging the people by bombastic placards anil edic and a great show of iHy ar ranged fortificationa, fi led with guns, more miwra bb, T am t?.l', (bee iose made by contract with a m tod irin,) th in those destroyed by the English j and to wl ich on account of their frtqueiuly burst n >, ffi" men had to be chained before they would fight ilc m. The leading men among the people at Canton complain because the mandarins v, ill rot do aoy liing themselves in 'he wnv of itnprovemcuts, or let an\body else; and in conversation with one of <he llong merchants, who takes considerable one rest in improvements in machinery, and particu! ir ly in the different applications of steam, upon ask iog liirn why he didn't apt a steamboat and run it on the coast of Canton River, he answered very ex pressively in the Canton English?" my likee too mich, but no can : that China law have tie hand, have tie foot; how can wslkeel" and this 1 am in clined to tlniik is too true for our interest ? Ignorance of the language is a great impediment 'o acquiring information; hut those who have a knowledge of it find it extremely difficult to get that which is correct respecting Chinese arts, owing to the ignorance of iheir artisans of the nnture of the materials they use and where they are produced, their suspicious dispositions, una the Chinese policy of excluding foreigners from the inferior of their chips and country. The machinery used by the Chinese is not only curious but instructive on account of its simplici ty ; and shows that by patient labor the fines fa brtC8 can be made with rude machines Their tools are evidently original, of simple construction and few in number. The carpenter's plane is ge nerally about 1 is inch wide by 14 thick, and from 6 to 10 inches long; the iron, about an inch wide, is confined by a small iton wedge which ia driven in between the iron nnd a piece of stout wire 1 hieh crosses the eye of the plane. A s'rotig wooden peg parses through the stock just behind the iron and protects on each side far enough for convenience in holding it firmly ; and in planing it ?s pushed along the surface of the wood wi'h both hands. The planing bench is similar to a cooper's horse without the head, and the workman sits astride ol the wood while phntntr it. The h>md saw as like our hack saw in form, and although it looks clnmsv with the bamboo Irame, it is light, and the workmen use it with one hand with facility. The <? 'reenter saws his own hoards from the log, with a wide, thin, fine-toothed saw, worked like a pit saw, by one or two men, without a line being drawn on the under side o( the log. The black smith's apparatus is more simple even than the carpenter's, and there are many itinerant ones who carry their forges, tools, fuel, and materials in baskets siting on their backs, and trudge about the streets seeking employment. Their bellows are generally made of a piece of the trunk of a tree, about 2 or 2| feet long by 7 or 8 inches diameter, made hollow and cylindrical, and closed at both ends: in this a paper piston is worked forwards and backwards, by a ttnall wire rod, (sometimes two) which parses through one end, with a cross handle outside. The cylinder having valves open ingin and out at each end, the piston draws in the air at one end ; at the same time it forces it out at the other. I have not seen any arranged to make the blast continuous as represented in Davis' and other works on China. Thpir anvil has a round face, but they appear to work as handily as our t-miths do upon a nearly flat surface. They use clay in welding. The workmen ia brass end other composition metals are skilful, hut their general mode of fiuutuflg these by scraping (the same way the smiths finish their iron woik) gives it a coarse ap. pearanc. Thev understand polishing and finishing with the file, but seldom dt> it, 1 suppose; from mo tives of economy. I have seen the operation of welding ens' iron (as it is called) several times ; it is no'hiitg more than making a crack in a cast iron veesel wide enough, bv breaking out nieces, to admit of melted cast iron bring put in in dross,and pressed down on ?Melt side like rtvits, until the whole length of the crack is stopped ; it is then rub'-rd over with wet clay, which stops up any small holes remaining un til it h ?g in nut iu u-e, after which there is no dan ger of in leaking if the clay comes out, as the dirt iccumulates fast enough upon the inside to keen it I? Ul. i'kcre is one article extcnsive'y us-'d by the Chi nese which I arn surprised the Yankees have not applied before ?this is Chunnni. The seams of all Thinnae vessels, I urge and small, are caulked or fiiinl with this article?it becomes as hard es stone under water in it few days, and is tin excellent, du rable, and cheap material, especially ft r small veg. -els, but if not skillfully made and put in, the work ing of the timbers of larue vessels is said to throw it out in spots It is made here by thoroughly mix ing, with s rammer, the oil ol the Jstrcpha, (a species of proton) with slaked shell lime, (rh'-y ?lav* no limestone in this vicinity,) and adding buruhno scrapings to b'tid it together- When ex poped for sHle it is about the eoiisist? nee of gb.xier'a ?uttv, and looks like it. The Jalropha oil is used f ir the aame purposes that linseed ml is with us, und sells m retail for 10 cents a cady, or about 60 cents a ititllon, und ut this price would be cheaper to use than linseed oil, which, I suppose, would m>wer as good a purpose formakin; chunam from 'he fnct of us rendering the face of the plaster of ;>arin motrtds, used to i ust husti und figures in, of a stony hardness in a short iinie,and keeps the wet I lister from adhering Oakum wou'd probtbly rn s>\er a better purpose than bamboo shavings to bind it. It is cheaper and more expeditiously ap plied, and presents a smoother and more uniform surface to the water than pitch and otkum. The mode of dividing vessels bv water-tight bulkheads or partitions, for security ngains'sinking, which is comparatively new w th us, is an old plan with the Chinese. All their vessels, down to the "tanker," or small boat, sculled bv women, are fixed in that way, and made tight with chiinam ? I'hev also use the centrifugal bellows, the idea cf w hich was probably obtained by the European in ventor from the finning mill, which is likewise a Chinese invention. The flowers, fruits and vegetables of t hina, the same kinds as those pr >durv d in the Northern and middle parts < 1 the United S'ates, are quite inferior to ours.
