']"^mui'd'fo'rtim at hie Brewery in Albany, has rendered itneeeesai wants of hie customers, to coma ia New YT en article t of his Brand pl-oiat and dMla'th Paradise sf the Far West?Rock River Country of Illinois. Mr. Editor: I hare had much pleasure?finding that a very brief communication in the columns of the Tribune of the 31st ult., regarding a favored section of Northern Illinois, has attracted considerable at tention, especially of persons of meanB, some very rich, several of whom have decided to visit "Rock River country" ihe coming summer, with a view to verifying the description of that nearly perfect region, and investing in its soil, if only a moiety of the inducements alleged are found. I am sore that the parties and all others of taste for beautiful sce nery, richness of soil and productions, variety ot surface, and perfection of climate in all respects, more especially in brightness, delicious tempera ture, and healthiness beyond any other in the Unit ed States, and perhaps in the world. Yes; such persons, I am Bure, will, on visiting the country al luded to, find the writer has not told the halt of what might in truth be said of its many capabilities and attractions. I will premise that this division of Illinois had not 1200 inhabitants previous to 1884, excepting the few in the then village of Chicago. But at present it contains nearly half the population of the State, which, as will De seen below, amounts to about 760,000. One thirty-sixth of each township, conse quently one thirty-sixth of all the lands in the Stale belong to the school fund,, and there are now accumulated, proceeds of lands sold, over $600,000, the interest on whieh, at six psr cent, is appropriated tor promoting education. Many years will not elapse ere their systems of schools wiil parallel with that of New York in proportion to the number of inhabitants. Lands are not liable to taxation until they have been sold, oi entered five years, and an express provision is made in the constitution that real estate and other rights as to property, suits at law, &c., may be held and enjoyed by aliens, as by citizens Below I add a statement of the population and the agricultural productions of Illinois, and in the mean time would remark that her natural resour ces. though developed to a very limited extent, will be found of value equal at least to any other Territories or States in the Union. The lead minds are extensive and rich. At present thev ore worked to a very limited extent, yet over 17,000,000 lbs of lead were sent to market from them last year The auantity of coal is immense, exceeding (as is stated in a work by an English geologist, who made researches over the west,) all there ia in England and Wales. It lies in beds of fifty feet and more depth, commencing at the surface of the earth, and extending in fields of thirty, fifty, and eighty miles. These minerals, however excellent and vast in extent, are but of limited comparative value with the soil for agricultural purposes tor raising atock, dec. There is none rich er, deeper, or more inexhaustible; and for nany years to come the cultivators will have ao occasion to be at any expense or labor lor manuring their land, and when change is re quired, it is only uecessary to use the sub-Boil ,dough, aud run the furrows a few inches deeper than formerly. There is no part of the United States more favor able to the growth ot the various grains, and for tobacco, hemp, and madder; also for fruits gene rally, the mulbury tree, and for silk. Hemp yields much more returns than in Kentucky, and quality it least as good?I think better. Tobacco yields li berally, and of quality equal to that of Missouri Thus tar madder has been produced to a very limi ted extent, but the quality is excellent, and quanti ty per acre very Urge. The yield of grains is large, and of the various sorts immense. The wheat brings in the New York market four to seven cents mora per bushel than that from other sections of the State. The meadows for the prairie and tame trasses are not surpassed, and the blue grass of Kentucky thrives well, and is admirable for winter cropping, keeping green through the winter. For example, I will slate that a farm of say five hun dren acres, taken in a state of nature, in April, may be broken up, and seeded down with wheat the following August or September, aud a crop be harvested the next summer. Bay thirty-two to thirty-six bushels per acre. This, with fencing, will cost only about $5^ per acre, of which the breaking up and fencing costs about $3 per acre, and those once done need not be repeated for many years; other culture in proportion. Sheep may be bought in Ohio at prices so that? delivered on your farm in "Rock River Country," they will stand in ibout 9U for ewes two and three ycarsold. Their fleeces will and do sell on the spot at over one dol lar each, and their lambs when six mouths old, and improved as they should be by good bucks, will sell at -91 50 each The entire cost of keeping the animals a year is less than forty cents per head, -tnd there is no disease among them m those high rolling prairies The reader may estimate the re sult, and how long it will take to get a flock in ag gregation ol 10.000, commencing with say 1,600 ewes, and adequate hucks. The wethers lor tnut on will bring $2 26 each. I will say nothing of other stock, except that the <:ost of keening it is in proportion to sheep?and when the blue grass springs, (as it will the second veer after sowing,) sheep may be kept through the vear at twenty-five cents per head, every expeuse included. At Mount Morris, about the centre ol the coun try alluded to. there is an institution for the edu cation of youth, that will favorably compare with auy in the State ol New York. At present there are over three hundred pupils. The modern lan guages, with the classics, form apart of the course of studies. A plank road is about being laid down from Rock River to Chicago. There is abundance of water power, adequate to driving all the machinery in England, which at very small expense may he brought to bear on any description of mills. At present there is abr ut \ sufficient number of flsuring and sawing mills 'in operation?but as the population increases, many mors will be required within one to five years. The writer would be glad to point out, to parties desirous of undertaking to establish mills or manufactories, a spot very advantageously situ ated in all respects The Mormon charter has been cancelled by the Legislature, now in session, and that class of people must now merge, as do other sects, into the mass Of course, no further troubles are likely to arise from their absurdities. Chicsgo, the commercial capital of Illinois, is fast increasing in population and trade. In 1S44 there were built in that city over five hundred houses, and they are all rented, at rates giving about 15 per cent, to 20 per eent. annaally on the outlay. A medical college is established there, aqd a course of lectures are now being delivered; hanidea, there are two institutions, rather exten sive, lor education, and many schools. Are there not many individuals and families in ibis eastern part ol the United States who would gresily improve their incomes and happiness by going into Northern Illinois, buying a larm and stocking it with sheep, Ac , besides owning land that will be rapidly improving in value?probably as much so as in Western New York twenty to forty years since. Lmd that may now be bought at from ?14 to 97 per acre, will (reasoning from the movemrnt in other Slates) be worth, live, ten or fltteen years hence, ten, twenty and forty dollars, or more, per acre? Why not 1 The land in Illinois is far, Isr richer than rvsr waa found in New York, Pennsylvania, Ao.?and may be put under cultivation the very season it is bought?no heavy dense timber to clear away, ?but the bosom of the country is at once ready for the plough. Are there not many who have some property, hut not enough to yield an income ade quate to maintaining the race of feverish, foolish rivalry in ostentatious display of extravagant esta blishments, and the trataol attempts to outdo each other, who might esea|>e from mortification, and secure conteniment, with so income equal to their wants, and, in the end, leave n rich inheritance to their heirs 1 And are there not young men who have property, more or less in amount, that is disappearing under their expenditures here : will not thry, or some ol thein, gather what may remain, and seek, else where, enjoyment, respectability, eventual wealth and contentment, in a country anJ climate equal or surpassing any other tu all that is desirable? where they may shoot, hunt and fish, to the extent of desire, all the year round?raise their choice blood and other horses?with all the various cattle, sheep,Ac.,at an expense lessby three-lourthsthanin the old States, to say nothing of preservation of. health of body and mud. I wsuld call the attention of all those whose pe cuniary position is, at present, unsatisfactory, or ars not sure of a competent income herealter, to the above, and what follows. From the statistics i all may aeduc* the rapid growth ol the new States, and that Illinois, reasoning trom the past, will, within a perid of twelve or fifteen yearn, have a population equal or exceeding in number that of Ohio at present, and the value ol the property in the State will be in proportion Within twenty years she will, in population and wealth, (excluding the property in tnr city ot New York, and foreign trade,) equal that of the State of New York at present. What then will be the value of well cli< sen LmJ, that may uow be se cured at the prices stated above 1 The natural. original resourecs of Illinois are far greater than those of New York; and, ere Beven years have gone, the cost of getting her products to the mar ket on the seaboard, will not exceed the rate paid in New York, not many years ago, for transporta tionfof her own products trom the western counties to her commercial mart. What, then, will be the value of land in the older States 1 A serious question for those who own farms in them to pon der upon, with the additional fact, that wheat is raised in Illinois at a cost, all charges included, of not over 36 cents per bushel, and other grains, roots, &c. in proportion. Why, the annual ex pense of manuring land in New York State, in Hbuut thrice the sum per acre that it coats to pre pare the land, tence, and sow,' nd reap wheat 111 Illinois. The following is taken from the report of H. Ellsworth of the Patent Office, and extracted from the Htrald of Feb. 7, 1845, to which we would call the attention of every American:?It appears that in Illinois the population, in 1840, was 476,000, and the estimates tor 1845 is 764.800-an increase of over seventy per cent in four yeure. If the increase continues in a ratio for ihe eight years following, the number of the inhabitants will reach rather over (2,137,000) two millions one hundred and thirty-seven thousand?and her pro ducts, at least in proportion and probably much more, induced by the increased facilities of canal aud railroads, the completion and building oi which cannot be long delayed, especially the Mi chigan Canal and the railroad (now partly graded) from Galena and the lead mine country to Chica go, about 160 miles. The wiiter is of opinion that it will be judicious to expect that the railroad, if finished in 1848, would earn enough to make satis factory dividends, and of course rapidly increase. This road would run over much of the extraordi nary country alluded to, crossing Rock River by the flourishing village of Dixon, a place to which those who seek to see that country, should proceed. I may state that if the bridge over the river is so constructed as to admit of waggons, &c , as well as the cars to paBs, the tolls ior the former would give a fair interest on the cost of its construction.

La Granor. Albany. [Correspondence oi the New York Herald.] Albany, Feb. 10, 1845 The Office Stekert?The Favorite Candidate*? Rent Burnings. I avail myself of a gentlemen leaving Albany, to announce that the qnestion of Health officers, and of the Health commission, was settled by the Governor sending to the Senate this morning the names of the same gentlemen nominated by Go vernor Bouck. As 1 stated before, all here have some object of their own to accomplish; conse quently, approbation or discontent is uttered by the same persons agreeably to the partiality and influence of the individuals with whom they come in contact. To the one they say, it is a most ju dicious nomination, and one that will give uni versal satisfaction to the democracy of the city. To the other they growl and shrug their shoulders, and whisper that Governor Wright is influenced hy Senators Varian and Lott, and that Senator Jones, who has yet something to expect from the people, will find out, when the time arrives, that it would have been more to his advantage to have undeceived the Executive, by telling him the truth in relation to the indisputable objections of his constituents to the present Health officer. The nomination for Pot and Pearls is narrowed down to Briggs, Gage, and Emmans. As Mr. B. is a clerk to the present incumbent, it is thought they will change positions, although Mr Jones is avowedly in favor of Mr. Gage. Mr. Edmonds or Mr. Cowdrey will be appointed to the Judge ship. It is a matter of regret that Silas Wright is lulling into the same errors as Wm. C. Bouck. In haste, yours, More Anon.

Thb Bournevillk Murdkr.?The shocking murder perpetrated upon Mr. Edwards, a merchant of Bourneville, Ross County, Ohio, last fall, will be re membcred by all to whom the circumstances were render ed familiar by the papers, soon otter the commission of tb* horrid act. Wo learn from the papera published in the vicinity of the foul transaction, that there is a prospect ef the authors of the deed being brought to that Justice which it so jnstly merits. The following in relation to this matter ia taken from a late Chillicothe peper: ? Four individuals are under commitment tor trial, in the jail of this city, and charged either as princ pals or nc cessoiics in the murder and robbery ol Mr. Edwards, of Bourneville. One of the number has made some confes sions calculated to bring te light the transactions of a gang of burglars who have made their rendezvous at several points along the Ohio river, between Cincinnati end Wheeling, including both those places. Lerov J. Maxon was spprebsnded near St Clairsvilie,in December last. Walter Haskell, at Portsmouth, on the Slat Decem ber. John Chslflrt, arrested at Merphis, Teen., was brought te this city two or three weeks since. Spencer Lusk, apprehended at New Orleans, was brought hereon Sunday night last. The two last named underwent an examination before Esq. Ott, on Tuesday and Wednesday of this week, and ware committed for trial. The two tirat anted, who were previously committed for trial, were aleo examined before the same Magistrate. It appears from the eoniesaiena r f one of the prisoners that there are still two individuals who have not yet been apprehended, one of whom, there is reason to belive, was a principal and the other an accessory, in the murder.

When this is dene, the officers keep a sharp look out lor property of snob a description, and when tbey ar rest a receiver are enabled to recover property belong ing to varum* persona. Great difficulty has arisen within a few days past from the conduct of the officer and privates of the Municipal l"olice. Whenever Btey arrest a party with any pro' erty, either stolen or supposed to be, they leave it in th* Sta tion House, and spnd the prisoner to the Police Office The wiin-ss com** tip, but the evidence of the corpus Ac leeli not being there, it is impossible to take an affidavit, and tho parties, la several instances, have been discharg ed hy necessity oi the rapsated requests for the property.

P.'s, determined not to he trifled with or insulted, and made an application to the Court of General Sessions, which, on motion of the Dis trict Attorney, issued its peremptory order for the dsli' very of the property. This otder was placed in the hands ot officer Stickles, but was not obeyed yesterday; and this morniDg the boys, from whom tho property wss taken, were discharged. The property was afterwards pent up The case was laid before his Honor, Mayor Harper, who will present n message to the Common Coun cil next Monday evening, that some immediate action may I he had to prevent such an assumption, and abuse of au thority on the part of the M.

The Court met at flj o'clock JudgR Ulihoefver President, in the Chair Their Honor* the Mayor, the Recorder, Judge* Ingra hum and Daly, and the Aldermen (Aiaociate Justices of the Court) were in attendance. James M. C Blakkly, Police Clerk, was placed on the ?itund and examine 1 by dr Hattarson, District Attorney Hi* testimony went to show tnat Juitice Haskell tendered the oath (already referred to at a former meeting ol the Court) to Huffiy ; and also substantiated the charge put in in proof, as to the f.ict of hi* (witness's) having taken down the testimony (already put in) on the occasion re ferred to. A proposition was here made on the putt of the prosecu tion, through Messrs Paterson and Huffman to dispose, o each particular charge before proceeding to the next, which tvaa resisted on the part of the daience by Messrs. Wood and Brady. Pkesioknt? I am of opinion that we should try this cause by the ordinary rules ol evideuce, but in order to ?ettlo the matter I shall take the question upon it. It was hereupon determined by the court not to exhaust the tes timony of erch witness on the general charges, but to ex amine in relation to the charges ttriatim Barnabas W. Osborne being sworn, deposed that the examination was goingon when he wen1 into the room, and Mr Brady was taking it In about an hour aftar, Mr. Haskell returned, an l objected to ths reading of the Anamination (a paper was then preserved containing tho questions asked, and answered by HoftyJ. No oDjectioD was made by Haskell on Hulty'a refusal to sign it. Mr Huffy then asked if be was to he considered a prisoner, and what charge there was under consideration; does not know exactly what the reply was; upon his asking leave to go, Hiakell replied, certainly ; Haskell's d-meaner during the examination was nothing different from his usual manner. Cratt examined by Mr. Brady?No persons lathe room during the examination but Hufty and myself. Farther cross-examination reserved. Justice Meruit being sworn, deposed?I was in toe police office on 4th January, 1846, about 11 or 12 o'clock; my attention was called in consequence of some conver sation between Haskell and Mr r'tewart, the clerk; 1 then went as far as the door with the intention of calling on Justice Haskell; when I en'( red the room, I found Mr. Haskell somewhat excited; some questions were pro pounded to Mr. Hulty, but what they were I cant recol lect; after tho examination was concluded, I told Justice Haskell he was doing wrong; that he was subjecting himself to a law-suit if DOthing farther; Justice t-iastull said do ye think so; I asked him afterwards what wai ihe charge against Hufty, but don't recollec' his reply; I then left the office; beiore leaving I overheard som ? con versation between Haskell and Hufty, but don't recollect what it was; I a'terwards saw Justice Haskell and in part completed the conversation I had in the morning; Haskell then sai l he believed there was a conspiracy against him on the part of Capt. Hopper; I spoke of some insult given him by Hopper,that the conspiracy emanated from the committee. Wk.liam M. Brtce, being sworn, deposed?I was in the police office en 4th January last, about 11 or 12 o'clock; I was about passing through the small room ad joining the police office; upon my return, I saw Haskell seated between the Cletk and Mr. Hufty, Mr Haskell waa greatly excited, and was administering an oath to .Mr. Hufty; the peculiarity of the oath administered struck me as being something peculiar in the style, to which an objection was made; in the cour*e of the examination, I observed the excitement under which the Justice labor ed increased, and upon observing the Clerk looking at Hulty he sai I, "You must no', shake your head during a witness' examination." The Clerk replied, "'Do you mean to say that I shook my brad at the witness ?" Mr. Haskell replied, "I do " To which the Clerk responded "That is as lalse us night;" the Clerk beiug very much excited also. The Justice ordered him not to use such language to him. The altercation 1 hen terminated, am! Mr. Haskell went on with the examination. Ithirk the examination was signed by Mr Haskell and the witness and both retired. In the course of about an hour, I returned. Mr. Haskell remarked, that his ex amination had been interrupted, and wanted to con tinue It,also wanted the upper clerk,Mr. O borne. Upon Hufiy's asking what he was detained for, Mr. Haskell de clined answering. Mr. Haskell then told him be was sworn to tell the truth and nothing hut the truth, and must answer. After that Hufty persisted in his refusal Was asked to sign a paper and refused. After that 1 left In a lit " the office. In a little time Hufty came out, and expressed some surprise at the examination. I returned into the of ' ce, and in some few minutes Haskell asked me to ac company him into an adjoining room, nnd there asked me if I thought he had done wrong. I said I thought he uad Cant recollect if any other thing passed between us. The examination iu question was then read, but none of the questions propounded appeared to hare been an swered. 8tdxet H- Stewart being iworn, deposed?I am clerk of the Police office; was in the police office on 4th of Jan nary lait, tometime in the forenoon; Mr. Haskell served a evipana upon Hufty, who asked mc what it waa for; I told him I did not know; Mr Haskell's signature did not appear to be attached; he afterwards signed and rave it to an officer who hand *d it to Hufty, and Haskell there upon told him he mu-.t tell the trnth. the whole truth, in Oliver to all questions propounded to bim; Mr Haakelt 'hen commenced to atk que.tions at Hufty, who muni lotted great reluctance in answering them; during thi continuation, Mr Hufty decidedly refuted to an*w?r at <11. when he wat agam told he must tell the truth, and nothing but th* truth; during the examination Hufty we* v bi d by Mr. Haike'l ii iie wanted counsel, who replied l;e did not; at the close 0f the examination, Mr. Ht*kel< said to me, you muat net shake your head again to Mr.Hnfty;! told him that I did not shake my head.? He again reiterated the queation, when I agaiu told him I had not dona so; Ma. H tskill said he saw me do it; I re plied that I certainly bad not, and that the charge wa^, faise as hell; he then asked me if I meant to say he lied; 1 iaM certainly not, but that he was mistaken In his aster tion; the examination then closed; do not recollect what passed during the cross-examination. On my return trom tinner I found Mr. Ha-kell and Hufiv again in the room; I did not take any further no' ce 0f the matter, and pur posely left the room; on leaving, I overheard a conversa '?on between Mr Hufty and another person, but do not iecollcct what it was about; thiDk it was abont the mis understanding between Mr. Haskell and myself, and that Mr Haskell had no right to keep Hufty in durance. Cross examination reserved. Third Charge.?Witness, in continuation in relation to this third charge, testified to the (act 0f Mr. Haskell hav ing disobarged a prisoner named Driscoll, from the City Prison, without examination. Rodxey S. Cock rax, police officer of 6th Ward, trsti fled to having arrested Driscoll on a charge of having taken th < watch referred to, and also some mcney, and to naviug brought him before Judgo Haskell, who ordered his committal; Judge Haskell did not examine the pri soner. Hexrt H. Sitlf.r, police officer, testified, that Driscoll was let out In three quarters of an hour after he had been committed Michaf.l Hom.n, cap! tin of 6th D:strict Watch, testi fled fbat a woman was committed to the watch house, charged with havingstnien wood from hitn He, witness was not aware the wood was stolen from him. James C. Westkrvticld. watchman, testified that he ar rested tv woman for having stolen wood, which woman was discharged by Mr. Haskell Dsxiri. R. Keller testified, that on the 2J October last he was taken to the wstch house and had iu his pisses siongsoe?and that he rem lined in prison until the Thurs day thereafter. The captain of thu watch took the money in question from me. I think it was Captain Hopper. 1 did not make any order or touch a pen in any shape or way. f can wrote, and if such an order had been given it would have my signature, that would have been append ed to it. I gave the money to another party,who afterwards gave me $900 and came in the morning. On making em quiry, 1 was told that the person who got the money had got an order from Mr. Haskell to retain it and I have not received any part of the money aince 1 give it up. Croti examined by Mr. Baser.? I am doing nothing at present; I reside nt 1J Front street; 1 cotila not be con vinced nor conrcricd it the money was mine or not; it it not true that an^part of the money was stolen?not r fraction of it wa* ever stolen : (laughter ;) I never told any person that I bad stolen this money ; 1 know Reuben P.
