NEW YORK HEKALD. Itw Vork, Hnintn)-, March U, 1K45 | '1'lie Llc?iiUauiiutiui of Ike <? Htaptctablc Hie#*." We give on liie first page of our paper tins mon - lug, a very curious and interesting chapter, in illustration of ihe licentiousness of a certain portion of the newspaper press of this country. The arti cles which we publish do not require any explana tory remarks. The whole story is told with suffi cient explicituess, and we aie, therefore, spared ilio unpleasant necessity of entering into any his torical details relative to the origin of the contro versy, which has been conducted on one aide with such an utter disregard of every principle of de cency or justice. But a variety of reflections are suggested by these extracts from the columns of contemporary journals, to which it is proper to give expression und consideration. The Courier and Enquirer is one of a pretty large class ol newspapers, that make great pre tension to high respectability, digniiy and propriety. This species of journalism has, indeed, always been in the habit of arrogating to itself the exclu sive title of the "respectable press." When the conductors of the Courier and kindred journals' have been twitted about the superior enterprise and industry oi the cheap tnde|>endent press, they have very complacently responded?" but we be* long to the respectable press!" When they have b-en reproached with lagging far behind the spirit of the age, they have screamed out in reply?" Oh ! but then we are bo respectable!" When they have been shown to be utterly deficient in all the ele ments that constitute influential journalism, they have been able to retort only in the same parrot tones?" oh! we are respectable?we are respecta ble!" And not satisfied with thus reiterating their modest claim, they have aasailed with the most unblushing effrontery, the independent daily press, and characterized it as all that was vile and inde cent. They have represented it as scurrilous? slanderous?lntamoua?profane?and every thing that was bad. They have again and again de nounced it as invading the sanctity of private life ? as attacking private character?as the wanton assailant and delamer of every thing that was jiure and lovely, and of good report. For a time, this systematic abuse and calumnia tion of the cheap independent press, by such "re spectable" journals as the Courier and Enquirer, was not without its effect. A free press, like the sword ol ajust magistrate, is a terror to evil-doers. It must be teared and hated in many quarters, if it fulfil its mission with fidelity. Wrong perpetrated on a community, whetherby individuals or cliques, cannot be exposed and rebuked without exciting vio lent animosity against the agency by which it has been dragged forth and chastised in the light ol open day. Hence, on the first establishment in this country ol an independent newspaper press, there arose, far and wide, in many quarters, a terrible outcry. The new power was making itself felt All sorts, ol intrigue, and corruption, and injustice, in almost every department of human life, had been safely perpetrated under the old regime. Just let any intelligent and candid mind recall the state of society in this country before the establishment of the independent press, and contrast it with its present condition, and then decide whether or not a change, greatly for the better, has not taken place through the instrumentality of that great or gan of just and enlightened public opinion?a free press circulating universally amongst all classes of the people. This is, indeed, now the conviction of the great mass of the intelligence and moral worth ol the community. In integrity?in decen cy?in propriety?and in a just and becoming re spect for all that is entitled to respect, the inde pendent daily press is as far superior to the old party journals?the organs of cliques and factions, ot stock-jobbers and mere politicians, as it is in ? point of enterprise, industry and talent. To return to the case immediately before us, where, we ask, in any of the tcheap newspapers, conducted on independent piincij les, can there be found such a wanton, malicious and indecent at tack upon private character, as that which was made on Mr. Willis, in the columns of the Courier tr Eruptirer ! Here is a paper which arrogates to itself the highest character for respectability, as sailing in the most outrageous manner, and. with out any provocation, the character of a private ci tizen. Not only dees it assail him, in terms of low and ruffian vulgarity, but it assails his relatives.? And all this without a shadow of proof in support ol the gross accusations which are made. And then, mark the gross injustice?the obstinate mo lice, of this " respectable" journal A rejoinder is made by the individual who has been thus assail ed?he proves every allegation to be false?he vin dicates his character and life from the foul asper sions of his calumniator Docb the Courier oflei any apology?does it attempt any explanation does it endeavor to present any excuse or pallia tion! Not at all. It refuses to make the slightest reparation lor the wrong it had committed, and persists in its slanders and its calumnies. And this is a" respectable" journal?this is the joernal that talks about invading the sanctity of private life? this is the journal that declares against the scurril ities and personalities of the independent press ! A more infamous abuse of the freedom of the press, and a more glaring forfeiture of every claim to the character ol honor t r respectability, is not to be found in the history of newspapers. This case presents but a sample of the licentious ness of the so-called "respectable press." Not a day passes in which we do not find journals of this class assailing, in the most scurrilous manner, some of the leading men of the country. Look at the tirades ot personal abuse and calumny poured out by the party papers during the last Presidential campaign. Loon at the manner in which Mr. Tyler is now abused and ridiculed and defamed. Look at the torrents of abuse poured upon him on his retirement from the most elevated office in the government. In what a degraded position are the people of this country thus presented to the eyes of European nations by the party press ! But what is national honor?what is patriotic feeling?what ii common courtesy,to these miserable, hireling tools of faction! They have their work to do, and in doing it they are prepared to descend to any ex trenuty of vilene*8 To eulogize with bombast the leaders of their own party, and to execrate with billingsgate those of the opposite, is their daily business; and that their heart and soul are in the business, who can doubt! It is, however, gratifying to observe thut there are visible tokens of a rapid decline in that "respect able 'journalism, ot whose decency aud justice we have this day given such an intelligible illustration. The intelligent and reputable men of both politi cal parties are beginning to despise their party or gans. The last election discovered in a most em phatic manner that the influence of such organs was most to be feared by those whose principles and views ihey professed to support. During the l ist campaign, it was notorious that both whigs and democrats looked to the Herald for its eleution re turns?lor us political statistics of all kinds?and for its independent and philosophical views and conclusions, whilst the forgeries, calumnies, and personalities of the mere party journals, were regarded wuh regret aud disgust. This fact show? that the days of such "respectable" journalism as that cf the Courier?journalism which assails with equal malice and scurrility the private citizen and the public officer?are drawing to a close. At all events, its powers of mischief,?its influence in in flaming partiziu leeling, in embarrtssing honest statesmanship, and in misrepresenting and degrad ing the national character,?have been already grea ly curtailed by the rapid progress and over shadowing power of the independent press,?and ^vt are well satisfied that the present expotk. will not be without its effect in curtailing them still more. The Tractakian Controversy.?We perceive l>K the columns ol our pious contemporary, the Journal of Commerce, that the controversy between the Presbyterians and the Congregationalists, rela tive to the mutilation ol the publications issued by the American Tract Society, still rageB very vio lently, and is conducted on both sides with a de gree of feeling rather more choleric than Christian. The recrimination?violence?ill-nature?and un charitable ness displayed by both parties, are repre hensible in the extreme. It is certainly very me lancholy to contemplate such a spectacle?holy and pious ministers of the gospel of peace abusing and calumniating one another, because they happen to differ about the propriety of disseminating sectari anism under the covert of the Tract Society. This is one of the feuds which cover Christianity with disgrace, and do more to retard the progress of true religion than all the efforts of its open ene mies. Many of the publications ol this Tract Society, by the by, are not only not worth fighting about, but are not worth the expense of ink and paper. Most of these " tracts" consist of a mere re-hash ol old, stale, common place, trashy theological dis quisitions, and stereotyped " appeals to the con science" as they are called, pretty much in the style of Parson Miller. We have examined some ol them, and find their descriptions ol the Su preme Being and of his dealings with mankind, utterly opposed to the revelation of his attributes afforded in the Scripture. The Tract Society migh1 be made, we very freely admit, the instrument ol great good. But in the circulation of many of the publications, now so industriously issued under its auspices, much money and labor are very unprofit ably expended. The Courier and the " Empire Club."?The Courier and Enquirer of yesterday is quite savage against one of our Washington Correspondents, because he complimented the " Empire Club," for their generous efforts in aiding to extinguish the fire which destroyed the National Theatre in ihat city. Well, this is really very Btrange cause for the wrath of our virtuous contemporary. Would he have had the members of the Club to stand idly by and refuse to aid in extinguishing the flames which threatened to destroy the property of their fel low-citizens 1 It very often happens that men get little thanks for acts of disinterested generosity, but it is rather too bad to pay them off with abuse. But the Courier, not satisfied with abusing the Em pire " boys" for their gallant conduct, must also abuse our correspondent, because he makes honor able mention of their praiseworthy behavior! Pooh! Squabble at the New Board of Brokers ? An incorrect statement appeared in an obwure evening print last evening in relation to a resolution offered at the new board of brokers. The facts are, that a resolution was offered, the preamble of which set forth, that whereas J. G. Hamilton had grossly insulted a member of this board, therefore be it resolved, that all members of this board are forbidden doing any business for him on penalty of expulsion. The passage of the resolu tion was promptly opposed and rejected by the President and other intelligent members of the board, and its ridiculous absurdity exposed, as the board had nothing to do with any personal matters Mr. Calhoun.?We understand that a large number of pereons in this city have united in an invitation to the Hon. John C. Calhoun to visit New York, and partake of a public dinner. Re-Openinq of the Park Theatre.?' Old Drury" will be re-opened on Wednesday night, with more promising omens of prosperity than have for some time past appeared in its horizon. Arrangements have been made during the recess for a season of activity, energy, and enterprise. The new play, " Green Boshes, or a Hundred Years Ago," a piece which has had an extraordi run in London, and is one of the most attractive and amusing plays which has ever been produced on any stage, will be performed on the opening night. Mrs. Mowatt's new Comedy, which is, from all that we can learn, a very excellent pro duction, will be announced in a few dayB. It will be brought out in magnificent style?one thousand dollars having been expended on a single scene. If Mr. Simpson and Mr. Barry succeed, as they may, in reforming the "cheap and nasty drama" out of existence in this city, by making the Park what it ought to be, they will hand down their names to posterity, as indeed worthy and valuable conservators of the stage and of the public mo rals. Interesting from the Cape of Good Hope ? The ship Henry, Captain Salter, arrived this morn ing, fiom the Cape of Good Hope, with the South African Advertiser, of the 12ih of January. Much excitement prevailed at the Cape respect ing a new Stamp Act proposed by the Colonial authorities. We find in the Advertiur, of the 8th, a letter headed " Icebergs off' the Cape." We publish it under the marine head for the information of ship masters. It was supposed that a large income would be re ceived from the sale of Guano licences, as the Governor has prohibited the removal of it, except by licence ; the proceeds of which are to be appro priated to the building of a breakwater or open docks for the protection of shipping visiting Cape Town, as, since the abolition of all port charges, the number of vessels stopping there has increased very much. Affairs in Albany.?We are indebted to Liv ingston Ac Co. for the following intelligence (from Albany. Alsint, 7th March, 1846.?The freshet is subsiding slowly. The first of a series of petitions, which I an told will flow in upon us, came in to day. It was from the city of Rochester, and asks, in view of the gross violation of the principles ot universal freedom and the existing com pact between the several States of the Union by tne late net of Congress annexing Texas, that the Legislature take measures for a peaceful dissolution of the Union. Ths petition was laid on the table. Mr. Van Vaikenburgh called up his resolution direct ing the committee on railways to inspect the condition of the Harlem railway. Mr. V. said there was a dispute between the rival applicants for permission to construct a railway between New Yoik and this city, whether the trsct already constructed by the Harlem Companv is ot sufficient stability to stand the traffic which its extension would bring upon it. The resolution was opposed by Mr. Coe, on the ground that if that was all to be inquired into,the report oT an engineer would be of more use to the House. The resolution waa laid upon the table Mr. Moulton gave notice of a bill to prevent the racing and trotting of horaes on the 3d Avenue in New York City. The bill farther to extend the act for increasing the revenues of the State by extending the market for salt, Itc has passed both houses, and Is now ? law. In connec tlon with this subject, I would mention that Mr Harris brought in t bill to day to |ex'end the markets for coal brought from the Beaver (Pa.) Meadow, by allowing drawback upon it when delivered at tide water in Oswego. Resistance to the law has extended to Ulster Co. A Mr. Lather went, a few days since, to draw some logs from land on the Livingston Manor, when he waa resisted by men disguised as Indians. In the tcuifle the mask lell irom the face of one ol the men and he wsa recognized Warrants are out lor his arrest. A bill was reported in the 8enate to day, authorizing the Utica t>nd Hcbenectady Railway Company lo increase heir capital to $*00,000, and to relay their track with an H or T rail. Memorials from the Chamber ef Commerce were pre sented in both branches ot the Legialature to-day sirainat liscnmmating tolls A bill was reported in the House to incorporate the New York Industrial Association. From Sabine River ?The schooner Lone Star, Knupe, mauler, amvtd here yesterday from Sabine river, whence she sailed on the Hist ult. The master Tf iioits that some dispute existed between the Texan and United Dtstti authorities in ngsrd to the tonnage duties .ought to be enforced by Texas upon American vessels Our revenue cutter Woodbury, Capt Foster, was in the 1 iver, lor the purpose of seeing that justice is'done The -ohoonor Louisiana was taking in coitsn when the Lone ?liar sailed. The precise grounds ol the reported dilttcui V are not very definitely given, but we trust that they ?re not of such a nature as to lead to anv serious difn ilty?iY. O. Pit., Fth.

Opie. The Echo or Truth?Staniord ami Swords, New York.?Tne supporters and admirers of the "Great" temperance advocate, J. B. Gough, would do well to peruse this smalt pamphlet, ere they bestow or give credit to his statement, if a tithe of the facts it contains are true, it must place him in a very different position with the public than that which he has hitherto held. New Defence or the Holy Roman Chuech? Franklin Office, New York.?The supporters of the Roman Catholic Church will be gratified by a perusal of this small work. Why a National Literature cannot Flourish in this Country?Franklin Office, New York.? Some novel ideas are promulgated in this pamph let, but, ou the whole, it is worthy of perusal.

The Standard Book op Common Prayer?Har per, Brothers, New York. The Episcopal General Convention in 1941 appointed a committee to pre pare a standard prayer book for the use ot the Church in the United States; and at the Conven tion of 1844, the edition which this committee had prepared, was presented, and formally declared by the Convention to be tht itandard. It has just been issued by these enterprisiug publishers, id a large and very elegant octavo volume, printed in very large and clear type, upon the finest and whitest paper. The alterations that have been made embrace not only such changes as the pecu liar character and institutions of this country re quire, but such other amendments as the highest authority in the Church deemed expedient. Tne work having been adopted as the standard, by the General Convention, uo other of comae will con tinue in geueral use. The Rise and Fall of the Irish Nation; by Sir Jonah Barrington;?Sadlier, New York.?This is a most interesting and valuable work, relative to ihe unfortunate country of which it treats, from '.he vigorous pen of one of its most active aud un fortunate patriots of the stirring times at the end of the last and beginning of the present century. It will no doubt be read with great pleasure, not unmixed with teelings of an opposite nature, by many thou sands who have found a happier home in this more lavored land; some of whom have been driven here by the wrongs aud oppressions of which this work treats. It is well got ap,at a reasonable cost, con sidering the vast amount of information it contains. Uncle Peter's Fairy Tales?Farmer and Daggers, New York.?Tne present number of this little work contains "The History and adventures of Little May," which will be found of a very in teresting nature by the juvenile portion of the com munity. The Chimes, a Goblin Story ;?By Charles Dickens?E. Winchester, New York.?Within a very lew hours after the arrival of one of the re cent packets, this enterprising publisher issued the above work to the residents of this city at the mo derate charge of six cents. The production itself is equal to any thing that has ever issued from the pen of Dickens; indeed some of the passages excel any thing of the kind we ever before recol lect to have read. The fact of this piece being already adapted for the stage, both in this and the old country, speaks well for the estimation in which it is held. The Wandering Jew; Nos. 14 and 15;?Win chester, New York; justissued?No. 8 of the same work from the press of Harper Brothers, is also out. Illuminated Bible; Harper Brothers, N.

Essay on Transubstantiation.?The Harpers have just published, in a small volume, a very able reply, by Professor Turner, ol this city, to Dr. Wiseman's argument in defence of the Roman Catholic doctrine of Transubstantiation. It is presented in the form of and Exposition of Christ's Discourse at Capernaum; and will doubtless enlist the attention ot polemics.

Dear Father I wu told when I first came out here, by Mr. C., and others, that I would, as a matter of course, have a spell of sickness. This has not been the esse, and I do not anticipate any such thing. I tbat the Climate agrees very well with both the temperature of New York and the middle Statesgenerally. Bilious fever, as J under stand, is the prevailing complaint. During the last summer the rate of mortality ttas been verv high but. this is attributable to several causes, among which is the very high water, which, when it sub sided, left a great deal of the country overflowed, and stagnation ensued; consequently fevers were prevalent. I take it that there is very little differ ence between this city and New York, io a sana tory point of view, and, with the exception of con sumptions, which are so prevalent on the sea hoard the same diseases exist and prevail here as there! As I have nothing to say concerning myself, I will proceed to give you my crude ideas concerning the city and country generally. As, however, you have been out here and seen and observed for yourself, a great part of what I would have said will be unnecessarv. . That the city is undoubtedly a growing and thriv ing one,none can deny,but that it is so to the extent that numbers cry out, is not true. I believe that in course of time St. Louis will be a great city? the greatest in fact in the western country, but it will take time to develop its resources and perfect its growth. The country is yet a new country, and it cannot be expected that St. Louis, a city on y sixty two years old. can rival Baltimore, Bos ton, or the smaller Atlantic cities The population (I am speaking of the city altogether, now) is of a mixed and incongruous character. In fact, it is one of the quaintest, old fashioned and strange cities that I. in my short travels, have ever seen It reminds me of cities that I have read of in Spain or some other old European country The citv as you may know, was originally settled by French and Spanish traders, when the whole of the coun n^ODa ^U8t e 1 'he Mississippi river was under Spanish control, and designated as the Lou

isiana territory. The Governor of the territory resided, or rather kept his court at the capitof, New Orleans,while the Intendant and Superintend! ant of an lira resided in the town of St. Louis 1 will not speak of the subsequent transfer of the country to French authority, and subsequently of its transfer to the Government of the United states, because I don't know anything about it but say this to explain what I will presently say of the nature and character of the population of the city ot St. Louis. The basis, then, of its begin n'"? w?f !uI8:7; ren?h and Spanish settlers, and uthough the old stock, or more properly the de ^,niant8r?fthe ?'d stock, have entirely run out still they form a striking characteristic in the sd oearance of the city. Walk with me down in the p--?riP?rt vc,ty' or' u '? commonly called, French town. You are struck with the age of the buildings in the first place, most of them as eld as indt Ei ? L1g u0U8e" built with peaked roof and gable ends,and the never to be omitted porch. No French house ib complete without its porch. Here, in old times, as chroniclers tell us, the habi i!LmLia J15y evemn?>.w,th his family, would SETO!,"* ianc? and sing to the sprightly tones of his fiddle. No French house is complete with out its fiddle. The houses are built with upright posts of wood stuck in the ground, joined close to gether, and the outside plastered with mud or clay, and with the old-fashioned chimney built outside of the house. Their whitewashed appearance and h*antMUlty ?, aReF glVrea a_. Peculiar interest to them Mementos of a fast departing race?thev (the French habitants) are disappearing before the lace of the Yankees as did the red man before thai of the whites. Continue we our walk; on each nde our ears are assailed with the continual jab bering, if I may so call it, of the denizens of these houses. It sounds strange to me, who have al ways lived in the London of America, to hear no thing but French spoken. What a fine picture for a paiHter. Lewis would be delighted to sketch them. Here is Jeun Baptiste, enjoying his even li?rLConv<*r,'ation w"h his good cousin Antoina What stranga names to our ears, for be it kuown hat Jean Babtiste and Antoine, or Francois 01 t-jregoirr, are the names most fancied here 1 hey are all good Catholics, observing the same .i'?-88?a,knR lbe.Bame, ideas, and perfect co Pies of their lathers before them. As their lathers tved so do thev. Their fathers were as wise sure ly as tnev, and why should they leave off old cus toms and old habits Such an idea, such wanton desecration never enters their thoughts a moment rhey live and enjoy life after their own way, and ^mni kherf 7a,y'and die- yd|. they are a good, simple hearted, honest people, a little corrupted perhaps by new sights and new men, but still wr lect types of the original settlers of the place. Thu teatuie in the city is to a stranger the most strik ing, and I was delighted at the scene. It carried me back in imagination to paintings of old mas ters tnat I had seen, and to a vivid picture draws by the mind in the never to be sufficiently admired works of an Irving. But if this specimen of an old and worthy race, ihe fathers of the place, are fasi <oinft to their last home, another and as strange be u always remembered to my eye, race are springing up, or rather have sprung up to supply their place. I mean the Dutch and Germans. Yoo were not long enough in this city when you were here to observe the peculiarities of the place, or in tact to get a good view of it in any way. Conse quently you would be surprised to know their n urn ber in this city. I had no idea of the kind Pro portionally, I think it must be far greater than in any other city iu this country. Consequently thev. too, form an important and striking feature to a stranger who sees the city for the first time. Thev have come over the land like a clond of locusts A beer house stares you in every street, or almost at every step you take. They are not the beet j uU?e8k?f N York~f? different; but they art | pld fashioned, sturdy, comfortable ??BierHauses," imported, with their proprietors, from the land ot the Rhine and Wuie. They are an essential fea ture in the picture. At any hour of the night can be beard tne song of revelry and mirth issuing from these houses. The Dutch are a national people, and clanish in their character. An Amer ican seldom or never enters these houses. Nothing but Dutch is spoken?none but Dutch visits them, and the proprietors care to see none other. Shall we enter and view the scene? You remark thai you are very fond of a good glass of beer, but that you dislike the crowd. Well, you are right: there is nothing to be seen but a set of Dutchmen mak log themselves merry over their ale, and smoking with three feet pipes, and their conversation you cannot understand. We have arrived in liermany. as it is called. The scene is as strange to you as rrenchtown. You look up the street ana down the street-you see nothing but broad, ftit Dutch faces staring a: you. By the way, I will remark tnat they are a vulgar set, and one would not like to walk with a lady through that part of the town, atier dark ; not that they would insult you?by no means; but they have strange customs of iheii country, which are offensive to every American eye and ear. You look at the signs over the door Wuay8,7y?u hut cannot resd.some unpronounce able Dutch name, with the figure of something which looks like a boot, underneath. Famous shoemakers are these aame Dutchmen, ag Gotham will testify. You turn your eye across the street, and the sight of long necked green battles surmounted with lemons of a suspicious color! and the eternal and never changing bier hausee makes you turu them again. Here the streets are narrow, the side walks still narrower, and the scene is a perlect copy from Vandyke or olhei Dutch painters. There is just finished a neat Go thic structure for the use of the Dutch. It is a Catholic church, surmounted with a cross and its stained glass windows throw a pleasant ray' of light across the building as the sun settles on ?m- j e "er*|c?" entirely in German, and still this does not supply the wants of this portion of the population. Most of the Germans that come lere are of the Catholic persuasion. In the lower ,>art of the city there is a small chapel under the superintendence of the scholastics, where the ser vices are also in German. These form a useful I Cila? 10 'ke.society and stamina ol the city. Useful, because industrious, honest and saviag; important already from the influence they 'xerc.se by their numbers. In what I have spokei, ??f the French and German inhabitants, I have con he lnny..remTLk8 '"'nfral|y ">* lower orders ol he people. There is among each of these a re aristocratic membership el J are almost exclusively the aris i!I. kP !oni i? ,be community generally Aany whom 1 could name are wealthy, and highi) ? steemed?extensive land proprietor*, and give character to the French population. Aad so ol the '.?e-man population; ihey comprise among theii lumber some of the moat forward and enterprising Merchant* of the city. I have now to speak of the remaining class that lords the population of St. Louis; and this class i> ertainly the most important and influential, as hey sre also the most numerous. This class I* composed chiefly of those like mvseif, emigrant* from other States, the Virginian, Kentuckian, aad Mary lender, the New Yorker and middle State man, and last,though not least,the Yankee. These torm prineipull)' the merchants, tradesmen and me chanics of tb>: place These give vigor, activity, <0(1 tone to apciety here. Thes< are the springs nid wheels on which the machinery ol society (ere acts. They are a persevenng, enterprising ?eople, and in course ot time will make St. Louis t very great city. Wont you come 1 Catholicism was but a few years since the predoininent religion here?at one lime almost exclusively so. They nave very fine, the finest places of worsuip here.? The Cathedral, and University of St. Francis Xavier, are splendid churches, and, in addition, ihey have two very large and fiae churches building and almost completed, one in each extremity of the town. Moreover, the German Catholic Church I have spoken of, and the chapel attached to the Scholastic Institution, and others. The Hospital of the city is under the care and management of the Sisters of Charity; it is well conducted and very popular. There are three Convents in the city, and the Catholics are very influential still. The great influx of strangers from the East soon broke Jown this supremacy of that church, and for the last few years Protestantism may be said to be in the ascendant. Of these, the Presbyterians are the wealthiest and most influential; they have lour or five churches; Mr. Potts and Mr. Bullard are the most admired for their style of speaking. I have heard most ot the ministers ol all denomina tions in this place The Methodists and Episco palians have fine churches, and are numerous 4ents. The city, as a city, stands yet in need of great improvement. The streets are narrow, and side walks also, and, in night, people who go visiting are compelled to cany lanterns, to see their way through the streets, i he city needs lighting with gas or oil, as walking in the streeis after dark is very unpleasant. And so, too, of water; the water is from the river, and very good, but the supply is too limited?that is,the reservoir is not large enough to supply the wants of the population In other minor respects, I do not see that St. Louis differs from other cities of the like size. Of course it is greatly different in this, that it is in a slave State? and yet the distinction did not strike me lorcibly. ( do not see those numbers of idle, worthless ne rroes, about the streets, that I did in New York. There they are but tfie future inmateB of the State ?rison and poor house, for, say what you may, (here is something about the negro character which iisqualifies him for work and energy. 1 was much uruck, as I think all strangers must be, with this feature of the place.
