Notes by the Wly, with some Hints on Phy. siognomy, Manners and Characters?Debate in the Smoking Room?Hasty Dinner at Harper's Ferry?Altercations?Odd Characters?Odds and Ends. Editor N. Y. Herald :? On a bright and clear morning of thia week, I departed from New Yorti for the valley of the Mis sissippi. As I crossed the North River to Jersey City, the harbor looked gay and cheerful. A fine West wind was making the white-sailed vessels dance about over the bright waters of the harbor. The scene all passed away in a moment, and we were flying foward, being chained to the swift power of the locomotive. A railroad Is a good place to scan human char acter. The Bcrutinizer must, however, be as quick as the Daguerreotype process. The observer must receive and arrange his impressions with the utmost celerity This art of instantaneously and instinct ively decyphering character, can only be acquired by much intercourse with mankind, combined with much tact and experience. In railroad care, there cannot be much conversation: silence nre vails Irom necessity. When people are silent they grow thoughtful; and thoughtfulness for the moment, sways the expression of the countenance. 1 he physiognomy, moulded into outline by thought publishes, to the close observer, the workings of' the inner man. Hence, in a railroad car. you may often predict the prestige of individuals, bv observing the faces of those around you. Among my present travelling companions, 1 see a country merchant, rolled up in tight woollen clothes, while his crown is well covered bv a closely drawn fur cap. By the winking of his eye, he seems absorbed m counting over his purchases and probable profits. At another point is seen a man with a new suit, a new hat, dec , with large silk scarf neckcloth to match, which, In its ample folds around his neck, looks as though it covered a Poultice applied for scrofula. His cheeks are banded by a large none of beard,fashionably combed out. When his hat is off, a bald head mav be seen but not sufficiently denuded of hair yet to require' WnnhJi i 7 a?d then his features relapse into u doubtful and painful melancholy. Sometimes his lips move as if conning over a speech for a mass meeting. Thai man is a politician, and is on his way to Washington to play his cards for an office As to the two old gentlemen with bald heads' white cravats, and black cloth 'cloaks, now earn' estly talking together, they are known to be cler gymen, disputing about the case of Bishop Onder donk, and especially in reference to his defence which had just appeared in the Herald. They are speeding away on a mission of grace and love as fast as steam can carry them?a mode of tra velling unknown to the Apostles and Saints of old. The two old Quakers need only to be pointed out to be known. Silence sits easy on them as they lean forward with their hands and chins resting on the heads of their canes or umbrellas while their broad brims cast a dark shade over the fixidity of their features What their thoughts are running upon would be hard to say; certainly however, not upon war, or upon theatres, music, or dancing, or even the possibility of a church with out a bishop, for they have long since settled it in their minds, that a church, and that too as good as any other, cannot only exist without a bishop, but without a professional or hired clergyman of any kind or description, whatsoever. Churity and love nriust be the Alpha and Omega of every true Chris tian, and these the Quakers have shown can be cherished and sustained in a society without the inteiwention of clergymen, merely from reading the New Testament. Our Quaker friends in this case may be studying means of thrift; but my word for it, they are not studying means of strife, scandal, and persecution. y onder is a young, pouting, well dressed girl, who looks half mad, half crying, and as cress as a thunder cloud on a May morning. On seeing a harmless gentleman observing her, she wheeled her head, and stuck out her two pretty lips as far as though she held th? body of an unopened ovster in her mouth, witu its thin edges sticking out'bevond the outline of her profile. She has already bit off several beads from her bag, and for ought I know, swallowed them. She has also partly gnawed ofi the end of her parasol handle, with her strong white teeth. The well dressed woman "fat and forty" sittiag by her side, is her mother, who is running away with her daughter to keep her from running away with a man. She now and then administers some gentle reproof to her charge, in the form of frowns and nods, which signal signifies in a railroad car, a great deal more than words can express In a snug double seated bench, in which no such man as our fnrnd Dixon H. Lewis could by any possibility squeeze himself, a young beau and miss louodthe most ample room aud space to seat them selves. He is saying many soft and beautiful no things in her ear, which she answers by arch-no things in return. Hhe peems simple, easy, and happy. Now smiles, uow blushes, now fans her self with Graham's Magazine, with as much zeal as it it was iq August instead of January. It is as clear to my mind, as that ear-wig* have a thousand legs, that white match breaking was earnestly going on in one part of th* cars, match-making was progressing very satisfac torily in another. Who can say an asssortment ot people seated in railroad cars do net present s Daguerreotype miniature ofthe world! From the main saloons I went into the smoking room, a perfect Liberty Hall, where every man doea as he pleases?smokes, chews, snuffs, swears or jokes as much as he pleases?sits with his leei higher than his head, lies down, lesns up, sits up or down, just in amy way he likes. I found therein a Pat-lander, a Far-West man, and a seedy New Eaglander, with railroad servants, hangers-on, Arc. ilns was the Sixth Ward, or Five Points of this world on wheels They were all in a high dispute about politics. Pat ana Far-West went it to the teeth for Texas and Oregon. The seedy Puritan took, high and strong ground against both, lugging in slavery neck and heels. Thia roused Far-West, who stood, or rather reclined six feet over benches, beyond the backs of which his feet dangled, like a pair of legs and boots swung out by a cobbler for a aigs. He wore a large brimmed white hat, the flap turned up in front; much of its fur had disappeared by reason of rain and hard usuage. He was smoking a long-nine with as much freedom as though he '"/beneath a tent of buffa'o hides, on the Prairies. 'I II tell yon what, pnmpkin-seed," said Far-West speaking to the New Englander, removing the cigar from his mouth and waiting for the smoke to roll away?"I'll tell you what, you know jist as little about Oregun and Texas, as a she wolf does about whai ? in the sea I tell you, Pumpkin-seed, such talk don t suit us Western chaps, no how you can hx it. We ain't going to knuckle to the Britishers ?niggers or no niggers. We can't help how much they kick and abuse their own poor, or how much they ride over the poor potatoe-growing pats, which we know they do, just as if they rode a horse whose intrails were spike-nails, whose head and nostrils were made of pig-iron, and whose tail was as a lash made of copper headed scorpions, and ?whose hoofs were set with thorns of brass, and t'*.e claws of the hyena. So they go forward, cavotting over the poor dogs, without any more pity than I would nave in galloping over villages of ant-hills." This speech brought Pat to his feet " That," said Pat, ? is ji?t what I was thinking, and it I had been after spaking it meself, I eould'nt have spake it better. I go for Texas-so fine and p'asent a country. I should'nt wonder it its a second green Ireland, which is the reason the English would be after saking it all the time " Here the seedy man interposed, hitting some hard blows at foreigners, which still more anima ted Pat. In the midst of the uproar, Far West y>rang to his feet, declaring they should have a fair fight, or keep the peace. At this moment the whistle drowned all by ita screams: in came the condnctor for ticketa, and I vanished. Next morning, after a brief snooze at Mrs. Brad shaw'a, in Baltimore, I was rolling away in the cars to the West,having lost nearly all my previous day scompanions, save and except "Far West," ? 8tV? l.? me a" close as a Turk follows Maho met. We had as far as the Frederic turn out five visters of charity. Sistpr Alphonso had died in Baltimore a day or two previously. They had her corpse along bearing it to Frederic for burial. n of the siatera, at the Frederic station, separa ted ,rom the others after having taken an afleclion ate leave of them, continuing on hi-r way with u* mrmrfe to Cincinnati, where tho Sisters have two establishments, and where she expects to re nd- She is last from Boston. All the Sisters Pave one had passed the bloom of youth, who appeared imte young and good looking In the same car sat a young and interesting mo ther with a sprightly inlant-as the little fellow about nine months old, would crow and clan his hands at ihe trees, the houses, &c., as they flrw like phantoms past the windows; his eyes and the c'ear blue sky being ol the same color? the mother looked happy and contented. I saw the younger nun occasionally stealing glances at 1 the infant. Where were probably her thoughts! We can admire the self-denying desires to dispense charity?to do good?to exalt the love of God above the love ot the world?yet disapprove of the necessity of perpetual celebicy and seclusion for the purpose of accomplishing it. We finally arrived at Harper's Ferry, where only five miuutes is allowed to dine, by " Shrewsbury time." Far West stack himself down, white hat and all?overcoat, half SHck.half cloak, made of a green blanket, with tremendous large pockets at the sides Directly opposite to us sat an Eng lish gentleman, fresh from Her Majesty's domin ions. His red rubicund face, guaranteed his love of good eating and good digestion. Far West gave me a wink. Just as John Bull had supplied his plate with a slice tf roast turkey, potatoes, 5cc , and had just commeuced vigorous mastication, Far West, who had laid down his knife and fork, 1 and staring John Bull full in the face, said " Good Jirneney, we shall be left, the engine is screaming till it is ready to burst it's biler." The Englishman thus suddenly interrupted, and that too by such a strange animal as Far West, in turn gazed at him with all the eyes he had. His mouth waa just then too full to speak, and in attempts to swallow and speak at the same time, his eyes grew large and watery Far Weat seeing his trouble, said, " Stran ger, prehapsyou don't know a man Iirs to make a railroad of his throat at this here foddering house, and push down his provender faster than a streak of lightning." John Bull had now cleared decks tor action, but seemed nuzzled which most to wonder at. the white hat and green blanket-coat, the unci vil interruption, or the language in which he was addressed. At last he 60 far recovered as to say, " Sir, I hope we may have time to swallow our meals." " If we stay here a minute longer," said Far West, "we shall be left," at the same time rising and pulling me after him. "Gentlemen, the conductor ha9 left, and the cars will be off immediately," said the landlord. "The devil," muttered John Bull, springing to his feet, as mad as Satan; fumbling over his waistcoat pock et out tell a half a dollar on the floor, which the landlord picked up, exclaiming as he aid it?"this is all right, this is it." "It's all wrong, sir, and it is not it," retorted Johnny Bull, very sharply. "It is the half dollar, sir, you take from me. but not the dinner I was to receive." High words follow ed, which could not be heard for the steam whistle and calls to take seats. Johnny kept up the fire which the landlord returned, shaking fists at each other. John Bull, as if to show his spunk to the last and die game, even after he got in the cars put his red face, head and shoulders out of the car window, shaking his list at the landlord, which belligerent demonstrations he continued to mani fest as the cars rolled away, amidst the shouts ot the boys and the laugh of the men,all of whom had become highly interested in the scene. I discovered the green blanket coat pockets of Far Weat had undergone a prodigious enlargement So much so, had he been Been by Mr. Wicklifl, he would have been suspected ol having a large amount of "mailable matter" about hia person.? "Helloa," says I, "FarWest, have you robbed the mailbBgs! recollect it is tinlawlul to carry maila ble matter." "It is mailable matter," says he, "of the first chop, and bound to the depot of our everlasting stomachs. You see no human cretur was ever known to swallow a dinner in five minutes and live after it, and being as hungry as a grisley bear in a thaw, while you all were trying to eat I was stealing like a Cuinanche Indian. So I just made out to slip unseen into these pockets, made on purpose to hold provinder, two whole roasted chickens, a leg of a turkey, a large cut or two oi roast ham, roast mutton, roust beef, a lot of potatoes, three whole pies, of different sorts, and a whole pone of bread. Now," said he, "we can eat as slow ns a bear sucking his paws." He pronosed we should invite the hot Englishman, which I did in hit name, who had by this time cooled down to atem perate state of mind. When I told him what Far West had done, he burst into a fit of laughter. Far West in the meantime had made a table of the coal box near the stove, using a newspaper for a tablecloth, and spread out a very respectable bill of fare. We sealed ourselves around it, taking out our pocket knives, and proceeded to make a most excellent repast. During our short stay at the table ol the hotel, I kept hearing the negro servants express wonder at the way food disap peared. " Law mity, Isaac, you ebber see, in your born days, gemmen eat up roast chicken and pies so fast!" "Somebody must swallow um whole, if you believe me,"returned Isaac. It is needless to say that Far West utid John Bull ? fterwarda became the beet possible friends, the Englishman seeming to rely more upon his advice [ and kind offices than upon any one of the more re fined travellers in company. When near Cumberland, a strange Irish woman, with a red-laced, chubby boy, three years old, got into the cars She commenced crying and bawling it a distressing rate, shaking her body and wringing her hands, using all sorts ot exclamations to express her misery -Far West and myself went up to her to learn the cause of her grief, when it appeared her husband had run away and left her, to whom she had been married in June last. Her first hus band had been .drowned in the Potomac. The Inst man, like araecal, had run eff, and left her and boy in the midst of winter, without a cent. She, ?tfier pursuing him some distance, yvas returning to Cumberland. Far West, after heaping all sorts of curses on the husband?some of which, it was plain ihe wife did not like?we took up a collection, and handed over to her a dollar or two. Our Sister of Charity seeing me hand the money to the Irishwoman, beckoned to me, and asked, *r-7 7 ? us "jf that woman was ^ in distress 1" I said, yes .. ...... ........ u.oucoo i x cam, yea She then pulltd out a half dollar, and told me ti give it to her, which I did. I sat down by thi sister afterwards, and had a long and very curio* conversation. At Cumberland we were all shipped in stagi coaches tor Wheeling, excepting some with my self, who diverged at Brownsville for Pittsburg. The rest ot the trip 1 shall briefly speak of in mj next. The weather is as cold as Lapland. Goot bye. Yours, dr.c. Sandy Hook. Avondmls, [Correspondence of the Herald.] Avondali, Pa., Jan. 29, 1845. Analysis of a Fancy Drat Ball?Character*, Real and Attumed? Beauty, Be/let, Buttons, and other small Matters. Mr. Binnktt :? Fancy balls, I find, are not confined to New York, Boston, and New Orleans. In this out ot the way place, where I have been sojourning for a few days, one of the most splendid fancy balls came off last night that I ever attended. The music was not so good as might have been de sired; but the arrangements, and management in general, gave enure satisfaction. Every one en joyed himself; and, about one o'clock, the young people retired, orderly, and hII in good humor with themselves and every body else. The gentlemen sustained their characters well, particularly Mr. N.. in the character of Bailie Nicol Jarvie, with only one skirt to hie coat. Mr. A^ as Metamora, ?/??i; Oi.u . ?v Ii.w ??? I ? AX., lvjomnium, was a splendid personification. The other main characters sustained by the gentlemen, were Dr. Skillett, Captain Boroughcliff, Long Tom Coffin, and Dandy Dinmont. The ladies looked en chaniingly elegant. I never saw a collection ol more beautiful women The lion of the evening was the lovely Miss Mary C., the daughter of a distinguished lawver, new retired to a farm in the neighborhood. She chose, and very aptly too, Di Vernon as her character. Her figure is tall, and perfectly elegant, and her face is like an angel's. Her riding dress was of blue cloth, decorated in front with three rows of small gilt buttons, whose plain flat surface flashed with a fascinating bril liancy, at every motion of her bust. Doubtless, she well becomes any style of dress; but halt the charm of her appearance would be lost to me, if I were to see her without that riding dress, with its glittering huttons. Were I a lady, about to have a riding habit made, I should not be satisfied unless it were precisely like the one worn by (his modern Di Vernon. Miss Louisa C.. sister to this beautiful equestrian, appeared is the Bavarian Broom girl, and sustained the character well. Miss D. looked captivating as Lady Caroline Butler, another equestrian charac ter. Her habit was black, with a saucy looking

buff* vest peeping out in front, and showing advan tageously a row of plain gilt buttons reaching quite up to her pretty chin. Marian Ramsay had i representative in Miss W., and PriscillaTomboy ti the lively Miss L. Mrs. B. appeared as Qu.-en Victoria, a character which she sustained artmira tily. The lunch wrs just what if should have been. The bat-t caterer in New York could ant hnve "doue thisgs up browner" I am quits satisfied low that the country is equal to the town in every respect, if not superior to it in many. I have been hinkitig of opening a riding school here. Lady questrians are certainly ihe most interes'in^ob jects in creation. Yours. W. Philadelphia.

A Critique on Clairvoyance?A Chapter on Mesme rism?The Professor Floored?With a Sketch of the Career of Barnaby Diddleum. James Gordon Bennett, Esq.:? Sir :? Presuming that you like to be advised of every thing wonderful, both in nature and art, thnt you may be enabled to "Hera'd" it to the world tor the world's benefit, I have thought it expedient to give you a chapter in the history of a wonderful pheno menon of nature and art, combined with medical science, as exhibited to the wonder-loving, miracle swallowing portion of the citizens of this town last week. It was announced to the good people of this place, by advertisement in our village newspaper, together with a long editorial puff, that the Rev' U. fcmiih & Co. had arrived in their midsf, and in tended to exhibit the wonders of mesmerism, clair voyance nod medical science, by a course of lec tures and experiments. They had sent out Oieir fame before them, and when they themselves arn [ ved they lound Very many prepared to swallow any thing they might be pleased to administer. They had an experienced clairvoyant who possessed the astonishing power of examining the physical svs tem throughout?of discovering and describing dis ease and of prescribing sure remedies This nan of their operations was at their private rooms The j sick, the lame, the hall and blind flocked in crowd to this "pool" and were relieved, nt least of ?5 -ach?any further relief I have not yet heard ot some persons present, whose organs of gullibility were not of the requited dimensions, exposed ? , doubt of the genuineness of the operations, but the Rev. gentleman having many believers on his side | was prepared for this, and very modestly expelled the infidels from the premises, and thus the truth ol , his docinne and miracles was attested unanimous ly by those present The lecturer being a "Reverend," procured the Universalis! church for his public exhibitions, and the first evening it was crowded by the enger mul titude. The lecture was a mixture of science and nonsense perfectly unintelligible to common minds, and his experiments in clairvoyance a com plete failure, as he himself acknowledged. This he said was his first attempt before a public au dience, and being somewhat excited, he failed of | success, but never had he failed before a private audience. Yet notwithstanding this acknow j ledged failure, there are hundreds in this town who | are firmly fixed in the belief that it is all truth that he advanced. The following article was prepared tor the 7tmei, our village paper, but the publisher haviug previously received substantial reasons, declined publishing It:? That prince of humbugs " Barnaby Diddleum," in the history of his adventures, has said that mankind like to be humbugged, however un willing they may be to acknowledge it," and who should know the fact better than Mr. Diddleum?? i he having been engaged in the business from his youth to the present time?having visited every considerable village in the United States and Ca nada, and humbugged more people 'han any man living?crossed the Atlantic, and successfully hum bugged Madam Victoria, her royal family and the nobility, and is even now in the full tide of success ful operation with the nobility of the frog-eating empire. Hut should the truth of the above quo tation from Mr. Diddleum he doubted, we have [ on y to cast our mind's eye over the .ransactions oflaat week in this village to be convinced. I al ude to the performances in the black art by the I Re* G. Smith Jc Co That mesmerism isaltogether a humbug I do not assert; having never seen but one . experiment I am not wholly satisfied myself. But "clairvoyance," or the power of seeing things in visible and distant, though blindfolded, I think lew who are net destitute of the power of reflec tion are prepared to swallow. The fact, that the reverend gentleman failed to produce any evidence before a public audience establishing his theory, is conclusive evidence that it is worse than a hum bug, and like the translation by the reverend gen tleman's namesake of the mystic golden plates, is better calculated for the meridian of Nauvoo than Banbury. I think the gentleman wan rather un fortunate in making Dsnbury the acene ol hia first P?bl'? exhibition, as it clams the honor of being the birth place ol the renowned "Barnaby Diddle um. and there are some here who 4iave taken lessons in hie art from this great man I would also advise him to renounce his title if he has any regard for the cloth, as did the distinguished indi vidual before mentioned. He once obtained the title by preaching a few sermons, but it became burdensome even to his conscience, and he re nounced it as soon aa possible. "O. K" I forgot tan to state that the proprietor of this exhibition was challenged by a distinguish ed physiologist to a public discussion of hia pre [ tended science, which he declined at this time, but promised at some future time to accept of it He did not stop oven to go throuth with his public I lecjures as advertised, but left in a storm for Po keepsie, the place from whence he came.

Notes on Mexico. I have already given you a brief sketch of the : proceedings of Mr. Trequerros and ltia Iriend and master Santa Anna, now I shall turn to the other individual? who compose the present Ministry of Mexico. Senior Don Pedro J. Echeverrid is one of the most prominent members, he now being Minister of Finance; this gentleman is ubout forty five years of age, small in stature, with a prepossessing appearance; and is a man of considerable attainments, having been educa ted in England, to which place he was sent when a boy, and for sometime remained there in company with his brothers. At this moment, and for many years previous, he has been extensively engaged in commerce in connection with other members of the family, all of whom are reported to be very wealthy; they have a large interest in real estate, many of the most valuuble "Hacien das" in Mexico belonging to them. There is one very remarkable circumstance connected with the Echeverria family, which is that they do not allow foreigners to visit their pri vate residences, nor do they keep company with more than two or three Mexicau larnilies; this is a source of great complaint, as the fairer portion of the Echeverrias are really beautiful; nowhere are so many pretty girls to be found iu a family. In the forepart of the day a passer by may ob serve these pretty creatures on their balcony, neg bly in < litii, probably in conversation with some beggar or domestic in the calle, and it is really charming to listen to their beautiful language, and watch their bewitching actions. In the afternoon ihey are to be seen at the " Almeda" and the " Paeeo, riding in their handsome English carnage, lor they seldom waik; and what a sight' Fancy five bewitchingly beautiful girls in one conveyance, without any other attendants than the postillion, and that carriage an open one ! not one of those dashing "turn-outs" which passes by with its trea sure not to be seen for some time again, but one that for hours is slowly passing and repassing, not only for this evening, to-morrow evening, but on every evening. _ . Every Mexican family must have a carriage, whatever the consequences may be, and every Mexican lady must be seen in it at the Almeda and Paseo, and that^ too, on every evening. Sad would be the grief if any occur rence prevented Jjer from attending. It is said that many families nearly starve themselves at home, so that they mBy keep a carriage. Out ward appearance is every thing with them ; con sequently dress and jewelry are in good request.? They also display much taste in their toilette, no other nation but the Spanish equalling them; and they have a decided advantage over the Pa risian damsels in their elegant mantilla, which undoubtedly gives much grace to it? patroness. There is something remarkable m their fancy for diamonds, which are the only precious stones they condescend to wear, and their reason lor doing so is uot very shallow?they say that a diamond always retains its value, and that at any time it can be disposed of for what it cost, or nearly so, which is aot the case with many other gems. The contents of the Echeverria's carriage are the attraction at the Almeda and Paseo; all go to see and be seen by them; every young man who can afford, and many who cannot, purchase a horse to ofl on before them. Occasionally they cause their chargers to prance so that they may, in the confusion, come in contact with the carriage. When thpy leave the Almeda, they return home, take chocolate, and dress for the theatre, and then it is that they are seen to the greatest advantage, looking more bewitching than when in the carriage-; three sitting on the first and two on the second seat of their box, the other members of the family keeping at a respectable distance behind; in thn way they amuse themselves in a variety of pretty ways, particularly with their fans (which are ol great beauty and very costly) they are incessantly moving them, and with their attendant music, act in concert with all the other fart, in the theatre, which to some ears produce delightful sounds. However, I couid never appreciate the 111 The principal object of a Mexican lady's ambi tion is to move her fan with a gracefnl rapidity.? flirtation, Indeed many girls curry on a regular through that medium.

Mr. Editor One day last week t took a stroll on Stater Island, and happened to stumble on the Orani'e Village, (so called) a small settlement built u,> by the Staten Island Granite Company, an incorpo rated concern for the working of an inexhaustible quatry ol perhaps the best granite in the world. The Company, I understand, is now in a situa tion to answer all demands that may be made on 'hem for granite, and at a price that must, iu a Utt'e while, make the stock a desirable investment.

Further Particulars or a Mysterious Af fair.?We mentioned on Saturday, what many, like ourselves, supposed to tie a wry improbable story, in relation to thr. rumored release ol un old man named Wilson, from confinement in o religious institution in Cincinnati, Ohio Circumstaiyes have since transpired to throw mora light on this mysterious case It appears that Mr. Wilson arrived in this city on Friday evening, by the weatPrn cars, in charge of a gentleman by the name of Richardson, and put up at the United States Ho tel, (Bradshaw's), Pratt street, where they remained until II o'clock an Saturday morning, and then took their de parture-Mr. Richardson (and lady, who arrived in com fiany with them.) manifesting all the time an anxious so icitude in hehait of the old gentleman, Wilson, who ap peared exceedingly feeble and debilitated, resulting, at he alleges, from lorced confinement and ill treatment, but manifested no little joy at the prospect cf being spcedil} re.tored to the society ot his friends, from whom he has been separated for about thirteen years. From what w< can loam, ho is, or was, possessed of large property ; that he was detained in confinement upon the ground of in sanity, but tinder what authority Is unknown; that hit absence continued a mystery to hi* relatives until recent ly; thut alterccmtidi rablrtrouble, his release from long confinement in Cincinnati was < fleeted; that he was taker in cbatgo by friends, to be brought here; and that on theii reaching Pittsburg, an unsuccessful attempt was made to rescue him from them, and they therefore reached Ibi city in snfaty, as above stated. Various rumors art afloat in regard to the whole affair, but we have not brer able to ascertain the facts, further than stated, which v.i learn from a gentleman whocsme in company with tin party from Cincinnati.

Irom No-folk, and came up te the) Navy Yard on Baturday Chaplain* In the Navy. i Mr. Editor i? | There is a naval bill most astonishingly appended ; to it main one, with regard to the creation of ad ditional surgeons and purser?, (the necessity of augmenting burn an unaccountable number we see not,) \v|iobe object ta to limit the *ge, beyond which ? chaplain of the navy cannot be appointed, to thirty yearn old, which is the roost preposterous preposition that has ever been attempted to be palmed upon the Senate. In the brat place, in our opinion, no chaplain ought to be appointed, in ge neral, under ihiriy y? am ol age, and always over, trom the reneral fact, that young chaplains require much practical i xpericnce and knowledge ol the WOT j f'Jthle them to withstand the temptations and difficulties incident to a naval life. Secondly: all chaplains required lor ihe service should be at least forty or tifiy years old, being calculated, from their very age and practical experience, aa well as gravity ol middle life, to make a dignified, serious impression upon the minds of sailors and officers of the department. Thirdly: there is no more reason that ihe uge ol chaplain* should be limited, than that ol any other department, all requiring exposure and labor, end experimental knowledge. Fourthly: Chaplains ot middle age, if educated and religtoun men, wiih a practical knowledge of human file, are the very best to be chosen for the intellectual and moral improvement ot the navy, which is so clearlv true, that it re quires no arguments to prove. Fifthly: it is our opinion that chaplaiiiB ought not to be appointed under thirty years of age, provided they possess the aforementioned qualifications, and at all ages be yond, it they are physically capable of performing the duties, as they are not appointed to perlorni physical labor and exertion so much as to exert their moral influence, example, and advice upon the naval corps with which they are associated : and we do really think in connexion with this subject, that Chaplains should never be sent to sea at all; for their services, to our personal know ledge, are very little needed there, but at home, ind those stations where sailors are really endan gered by the influence of evil habits, and where, under judicious regulations, they could do lar more ?ood. in our estimation, in one month, then they could for years at sea, as the matte/ baa been pre viously arranged. There is another f eature of that bill which to our view is quite as exceptionable as the one j?t men ioned, and that is, that they shall not receive a sa lary of any kind on leave or waiting orders unless hey have been three years at sea, which is posi ively a most unjust measure, ubhII those chaplains orsoutli who have not been at sea must seek some ither employment to support themselves and fa mi les it ih.y do not have the good or ill-fortune to >e ordered to a vessel whose destination mightnot mif, or he injurious to them, and when, perhaps, it nay not be in the power ot the Secretary to order >hem anywhere. This would certainly be a heau ilul mode of injuring a valuable body of men em ployed to guard the morals ol our navy. But more uf this anon. The bill also provides that before chaplains can be ordered to Navy Yards or home station* they must have gone three years to sea, toe. Now it ..ppears to us that the Secretary of the Navy should order chaplains to shore or sea stations with regard to their abilities and adaptedness with i view to their usefulness for thv place, or else the ?living chaplains home stations as a matter of re ward, puts me in mind of the idea that once pre vailed, that ihe oldest men were to be made Bish ops irrespective of their talents and piety, and it nskes the whole matter a piece of political ma chinery to perforin a certain kind ot systematic clock-work, just to suit th? selfish views of a few nisgurded individuals. We hope the Senate will reject this bill in toto. Jostitia.
