NEW YORK HERALD. New York. Moiutaf, April Ml, 1*1#. Ntwi from Kurope. The Caledouiti was si.ueen day w at sea yestrrdaj nooa. She will bring one week's later intelligence We may expect her news at two o'clock thin after noon by the New Haven boat. The New Corporation?City tieform?What la to be done 1 The caucussing of the new Corporation goes on with great activity. Very satisfactory progress is made in the division into opposing cliques- Ihe lines of deinarkation are already pretty well mark ed out, and the feeling of mutual hostility is rising rapidly. The last year hsviug been spent on the commons, the appe'ite of the cattle has been sharp ened to the very utmost degree of ferocity, and the battle of the factions will be savage, unrelent ing, and bitter beyond precedent. The young democracy, headed by Charlick?the everlasting thorn in the flesh of the "natives"? has already had a very respectable skirmish with the old hunker digue, whose movements are direct ed by the venerable Purdy, otherwise called "Iron, sides." In this preliminary struggle, the old hunk ers have suffered defeat, and their successful anta gonists, taking fresh courage, are fully prepared to carry on the fight, with the charitable cry of "war to the kuife." They seem determined to give no quarter to the opposing clique, which is in its turn equally resolute and equally bent on obtaining the lion's share of the spoils. Meanwhile, lesser clique* are quietly in process of formation, and al though they make very little noise, and hardly as yet show themselves, it is not at all unlikely that they may coine in for a very respectable portion of the pickings, whilst the others do all the tquab bling and fighting. From all present appearances, then, the enure term of office will be consumed by the new Corporation in a selfish, rapacious and dis graceful scramble for the loaves and fishes. There has not as yet been a single indication in any quarter of a contemplated movement for a reform of the numerous abuses which have, for bo long a period, corrupted the government of the city. We think that every intelligent man must now be thoroughly convinced that some radical change in the organization of our municipal government is absolutely necessary. All parties have been tried, and all have proved uniformly faithless to the public interests. It appears that under the present form of government it is impossible to obtain an honest, capable and salutary administration of city affairs The facilities for corruption and political profligacy are so great?the temptations to unfaith fulnessare so ensnaring and powerful? the wagesot diahonesiy are eo easily reaped?that no integrity, or honor, or sense of duty that can be found willing to enter the Corporation are proof against the iu fectious atmosphere of the City Hall. The gold turns to brass?the silver to lead?purity to impu ty, so that where we expected to find sterling in tegrity, shining talents and unimpeachable honesty, we have found nothing but impudence, stupidity and corruption. Has it not been so 1 In what re spects has the municipal government of this city kept pace with the growing intelligence, enlighten ment, population, progress and wants of the me trolis! What great and comprehensive measure of public utility have emanated from the corpoiate authorities! Look at our Btreets?at our public grounds?at our steamboat landings?at our mar kets?at our cabs aud omnibusses?at every thing connected with the police of the city?and an swer, does New York present anything like the aspect of a well governed city in the United States of America, in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and forty-five! It does not. It re sembles much more an English provincial town at the close of tha.iast century, than what any intel ligent christian stranger expects to find the chief ci'y of the Union to be, so far as municipal regu lations are concerned. It is very clear that the present democratic Cor poration do not mean to give themselves any trou ble about city reform. If they did entertain any eueh benevolent designs, we surely would not find them giving themselves up, the very moment they were sure of their election, to a fierce and bitter contest for the spoils of office. Were they resolved upon giving us good government, they would be meeting now?not to break each other's heads over the flesh-pots?but to ascertain what reforms were most wanted?what they ought first to do for the purpose of serving the public interests?what step was first to be taken for the removal of the accumulated abuses of years. But week after week, we may expect to follow them, asking in vain for reform, and beholding them continually engaged in that unending work of political cor ruption, wtucn? Bequeathed from plund'ring ijre to (on? -will contiaue to engage all the time and faculties of our corporate authorities, until the whole system of our city government be revolutionized, and the facilities for profligacy and faithlessness be re moved. This can be done only by assimilating our municipal government to that of the State making the Aldermen and Assistants the paid and responsible representatives of the citizens?extend ing the term of office?and rendering the appoint ment and removal of all the subordinate officers connected with the police of the city entirely in dependent of mere political influences. The brief annals of the defunct "native" party, whilst they demonstrated that the intelligence and patriotism of this city will not tolerate the admix ture of sectarianism and bigotry, and religious pro scription with political affairs, also showed that a "reform party" in this city?based purely on princi ples of city reform, and organized for that specific purpose, and for that alone, could eventually carry every thing before it. An immense mass of the population of thiB city is entirely aloof from mere political parties. There is also a growing convic tion in the minds of intelligent men of all parties that the local politics of the city should be dissever ed from national politics. If the new Corporation go on as they have commenced, we 6hould sot be at all suiprised to see a new " reform party " or ganized on enlightened and liberal principles, springing up in a few months, and carrying the city triumphantly in the spring of next year. In saying this, we feel well assured that we give expression to the speculation and the wish of the enlightened independent public opinion of this city, at this mo ment. Let us wait, and see how events will sus tain the conjecture and strengthen the desire. Foreign Correspondence?We publish to-day three interesting letters, one from Panama, one from Bra/.il, and one from Cuba?three different points on this continent. These letters are highly interesting and contain intelligence to be found in no other paper. Important Literary Intellioence ? National Nomenclature.? A distinguished character in thti city?the author of the immortal ode? "Did you ever nee a wild goo?e ttUiog on the ocam f" has just published an elaborate report suggesting a new name far the coaatry decidedly more origi nal, geographical, characteristic, and "primordial" than "Alleghania,'' which is to be presented at the next meeting of the illustrious tavans of the Histor ical Society. An interesting discussion will en sue, of which we shall take care to give a full report. ftry-Amongst the arrivals recorded to-day will be found the names of Don Antonio de Acinins, Con *j| General for Guatemala, at the City Hotel 5 and those of the Rt. Kcv. the Lord Bishop of New foundland, who arrived yesterday in the schooner "Achiever," from Bermuda, and Madam Pico, at the Globe. The Park.?"Money" is to be played at the P*rk to-night?Anderaon as " Evelyn." A crowd boiMe.ofoourte. Ckiminal Cousts of England and thi United States.?We give on the first page of this day's paper, the most important proceedings in the case of the Quaker, Tawell, who was recently exe cu ed in England for the murder of a female.? This ia a case which has excited a great deal ol interest amongst all classes on the other side of the water, and even her; it has attracted much public attention. We give the proceedings a place in oar columns for various reasons. The case, in itself, I presents, in great and glaring eharacters, a lessen and a warning, which cannot be too strongly en forced, or loo widely dominated. But in another point of view this publication ap pears to us to be peculiarly seasonable and useful at this moment. In this case of Tawell we are presented with a most striking illustration of the tremendous energy and iufl.-xible justice with which the criminal law of England is administer- I ed. In the arrest?trial?conviction?and execu tion of this miserable mar, we are most forcibly impressed with the comparative weakness, ineffi ciency, and (altering character of the administra tion ot justice in this country. So frrqnent and so glaring have been the cases here in which crimi nals of the deepest dye have escaped the just pun ishment of their offences, that it has passed almost into a proverb that a rich or influential offender is certain of impunity. This melancholy state of things has been produced by the efforts of a weak philanthropy which has elevated criminals into he roe?, and a spurious sentimentalism, which has attempted to invest the ministers of justice with contempt and ignominy. The bench and the jury box have been contaminated by this false sympa thy for the murderer?conviction has been render ed diflicull, even in the clearest cases of guilt?and the facilities by means of which the execution of the sentence of the law can be postponed or evaded, have been tearfully increased. We do not know any subject to which it is more important to direct the practical good sense of the people c ? this country, than to this growing debili ty in the administration of criminal justice. The evil is one which is fast undermining the order and well-being of society. Let all wise and sound minded men in the community see to it, that a re medy be applied before it be too late. " Fashion"?A Mystkky.?The letter signed "Mary Maywood," which we copied on Saturday from the Anglo-American, a weekly paper publish ed in this city, has ehcitcd the following explana tory end contradictory communications from par ties concerned, and which we very cheerfully place before the public 414 Buoadwat, April 14, 1843. Te James Gordon Bennett, Em ? My Dear Sir,? Allow me to trespass upon your patience for a moment, as wbat 1 have to say relates to a public quesliou. A let ter appeared in a wetk.lv publication on Saturday, signed Mary Maywood, accusing the highly talented authertss of" Fashion," of having dishonestly possessed herself of tba material for her very churning comedy, now acth'g with such ielat at ihe Park theatre, and as 1 am not aware that the name ol Maywood ha* ever been borne by any hut my own family in this country, 1 take tho liberty ef thus publicly disclaiming, on the part of its member*, any participation or knswledge of the publication put forth, or of the parties concerned. My daughter, formerly viiss Marv E. Maywood, is now, and has been for many months, Mrs. Duvenall, at present engaged at the Park theatre. In her company, and that of my wife, whose Christian nome is Louisa, not Mary, I have twice wit nessed the performance of tho comcdy in question, with in finite pleasure; and instead, therefore, of accusing Mrs. Mowatt cf ucfurneu, or ot carping and cavilliog at her ! well earned laurels, we wish her long years of health to wear ber " honors thick upon her," end that her present success may only serve as sn incentive to the further ex ercise of her admirable powers. With the highest respect, I remain, for myself and family, Your ohliged, humbU sv't, HOBT. CAMPBELL MAYWOOD New Yoke, 19th April, 1845. Editor of the Herald? Dear Bib? In pnswer to the wholly unfounded charges brought forward in your papsr of Saturday against the authoress of "Fashion," by some one signing him?or her?self "Mary Maywood," I have simply to reply, that Mrs. Mowatt has never seen sr henrd of any of the published or unpublished productions of that person: *or has she ever had any communication, directly or indirectly, with any of the editors of the Surnlay Jltlat. Yours, very respectfully, James mowatt. All this is very satisfactory, so fer as Mrs. May wood and Mrs Mowatt are concerned. Eutwho is the "Mary Maywood" of the Anglo-American? The editor of that paper has, it seems, in his pos session, the sketch referred to, and the editor of the Atlat recollects the circumstance of a young man calling for the MS. at his office, but knows nothing of "Mary." The probability ia that some one has been hoaxing the Anglo-Ameriean with the view of attracting a little public attention to his articles in the Sunday paper. And yet it is said that there it a "Mary Maywood" somewhere in Division street, who makes elegant bonnets, and writes for the Sunday papers. Will nobody unra vel this mystery T Palmo's Theatre ?This evening Mr. Booth makes his second appearance as Sir Giles Over* reach, in "New Way to Pay Old Debt*." Hervio Nano makes his first appearance in one of his most popular pieces. From the applause the former re ceived on Saturday evening, by a very good house, there is every reason to expect the attendance will be still greater on the present occasion. More Steamboat Disasters.?We have re ceived the following additional particular from the Swallow, together with intelligence of two other steamboat disasters: The 7Y?y Budgtt of Saturday, Mate* We have a letter from Capt Squier, dated at the wreck yesterdsy, inhum ing ui that the necessary apparatus and competent men are on the apot making active preparation* for tailing the Swallow. Meanwhile, the captain aaturea as that he hai a large number of men still engaged without intermission dragging the fiver in search ot any that may be lost. The Eviituville Journal of the 30th ult., inform* u* that the steamer West Point, bound up the Wabash, burst her cylinder head just above that plRCe, on the 0th ult., scald ing eight persons, among whom wa* a female and her child, deck paiaengera?the engineer, and hve others, deck pa?sengers?some ol them very severely. The child, about ten months old, has since died, And the mother i* still in a very critical aituation, having inhaled the gaa or *te*m. It la thought she will rt cover ; the others aro out of danger. Those of the wounded who desirtd it, ware removed from the boat to comfortable quarters, pro vided lor them by the citizens, who, especially the ladies, have been unremitting in their attentions upon them. The Neto Orleans Pic. of tho 13th inst. saya The Memphis reports the lots ol the Kate Aubrey, at Plumb Point, on Monday evening last Siie was descending the river, when the was run into by .he Sarah Bladen, and went down in a few minutes. The Champion was along side, taking out whatever furniture, baggage, lie could be saved. The boat will be a total loss. No lives were lost. Firtiier from Mexico.?The Ntw OrUant Picayune of the 12th inst gives the annexed addt. tional intelligence from Mexico. According to ihis the Mexicans received the news of the passage of the resolutions rather quietly:? In announcing to the Mexican Congress the passage of the measure ot Annexation, Senor Cneva took occasion to express the views of the administration of Geo. Ilerrera. He said that the Government would at once address an energetic protest to all friendly nations, as well as to the United Statea, against annexation; that diplomatic rela tions with this country would thereupon terminate. He ?aid the Government felt itself strong enough for the emergency, without the grant of additional powers, and trusted that, instead of a grievous calamity, annexation might really prove a blessing to Mexico, by uniting all her people in a determined etturt to maintain their rights and preserve the integrity of the territory of the Republic. The Presidents ol the two Chambers responded in much ihe same strain. Trouble in Central America ?We have re ceived via Mexico, late news from Guatemala :? [From Ntw Orleans Picayune, April 12] On the 1st Feb there was a freih outbreak in the city, beaded by Mariano Mendtz, an otHcer who commanded the guard oi the Piazza. He set at large the prisoners, tirptisfd the house of the President, and relenting Oen Montemsa irom his confinement, proclaimed him chief of the revolution. The precise object of the insurrection was not known. The troi ps which remained faithful to the Government alter an indecisive skirmish * ith the in -urgent*, took up their quarters in the suburbs, an I granted to the other party till the Athof February to lesve the city, gnsranteemff that no other attack should be na-ie upon thtm till that day.

This re flection is suggested by the painting commencing the catalogue. It is a subject that has occupied the genius of some of the greatest artists of an cient and modern times?and few have been en tirely successful. Mr. M. has not been so, for the picture before us is tilled v. tth many and striking faults?bad drawing, disagreeable coloring, and ungraceful lines,?and yet there are some points of truth and beauty; the right arm and hand of Adam are well drawn, and 'he right foot and leg of Eve is a model of beauty, and, we should suppose, of truth?yet, being a bachelor, cannot speak from actual knowledge of its correctness. The wring ing of bands is not a legitimate mode of exprt saing deep grief; feminine wretchedness, in books of romance is always displayed in that manner, but we doubt the propriety of putting Adam in such an ! effeminate position.

In these imitations of old i>aiatings, it should be remembered that though time softens, it also destroys many of the delicate links of color that unite the lights with the middle tints, and the middle tints with the sha dows.

There is a clearness of touch in m-iity par s of this landscape that is commendable. The most striking deficiency in Mr. C.'s works is an absence of air, which giveB hia distances a sharp ar d untruthful character. Breadth also is wanting, ur rather unity of breadth; the broad shadows in this picture are so cut up near the foreground, that it makes it seem spotted; and in nature a very short distance from objects destroys that character. Every variety of form may be defined, if done skilfully, without breaking up the seeming breadth of the shadowaor lights. 18? The Alderman, by S Comstock: A coarse, vulgar portrait.

No oranges nor plantains to be seen here, and we have a great many vessels of all nations here without freight?principally American. Several American vessels from the United States arrived with car goes of rice, and some with horses, but finding the market so low they have returned back to the States?some to New York and some to New Or leans. The Alabama, which was formerly pretty regu lar in her tripe, has been unlucky enough to get out of the track. Instead of leaving New Orleans on Sunday, she left on Wednesday. By that de tention we thought that she was lost. Our Governor, O'Dounell, arrived in the city on the 2'1 inaiant, wi.h his familv, troin the country seat of Mr. Pedrose- When he firat arrived from Spain, he was verv strict and severe, but now he is quite different The love of money makes him soft, human, and charitable?ihe first time that the love ol money made a iran so. The best proof of this is setting at liberty great many of those who were guilty in the last conspiracy, and without trial. His motto is -Money is rny God and the best Judge for the AtwaMin." A certain mulatto, named Blackley, a demist, had been foun'i with the plan of the conspiracy in his pot session ; he was to have been Oeneral, and had had his em broidered coat made in Paris. He was taken to j.iil, and there confined nine months. A large sum of money was his judge; he was iouud innocent, and set at liberty ; uU? a great many others. Now we have a lawyer inja.il, Mr. Bombalier, for being engaged in the same conspiracy, and everybody believes that money will soon set him at liberty. Anottier thing, the Governor's proclamation, for bidding the landing ol slaves on the Island, was nothing more than a defaite, just to please John Bull. Since then, one sUver, the Lacnonero, has landed 640, in Havana Kay; and two weeks ago, two slavers landed 54M, near Batabano and Trinidad. The slaves here are very insolent, be cause the laws of the place authorises them to be so, by having the rights to sue their masters at the Syndic's House. The holy week has stopped all business, and pro cessions ol monks, saints, white and black popula tion, go through the streets, followed by good military bands and troops.

[Correspondence of the Herald.] Panama, February 20th, 1845. Our Foreign Correspondence?The Isthmus of Pan ama?Surveyf for,u Canal, %-c.?The Pearl Fish cries?Panama as it is?As it will be. It struck me in sitting down to this letter, that your paper, so lull of correspondence from every other quarter of the|world, is lamentably deficient in South American matters. This, 1 know, is owing to the scarcity of countrymen that are capable oi writing anything that would be relished by the readers of the Herald, rather than to neglect on the part ot the Herald, to the interests oi this splendid region. But still, there should be something more than mere dry statistics, printed about this coun try. I offer you the chance of a correspondence, which shall treat of everything of general impor tance, which happens along the borders ot the Pa cific, from Panama to Valparaiso. Panama is, as you are aware, the Pacific ter mination for all of the projects of communication across the Isthmus of Darien. It is a small town, without much trade, situated on a tongue of land, at the head of the Bay of Panama. Its only arti cles of export, consist of pearls, which are found in the Bay. The pearl fishery is one of the best in *the world, employing seven hundred divers. But the speculating world will soon do for Panama that which the indolence of its inhabitants would never permit them to do for it. There must be an 1 immense city here in the course of time, as the ad vantage of a passage between the two oceans, is beyond all calculation. The French Commission ers made a survey last year of all the routes talked of. And now the Surveyors of the Royal Mail At lantic Steam Company are here on a similar errand. The project ol a canal appears to be beset with too many ditfienlties to be carried out?the tide of opinion seems to be strongly setting in tavor ol a McAdamized road, but that would ren der transhipments necessary. The saving of dis tance from New Yotk to Canton by this route would be about five thousand miles, according to the best information. The labor for any underta king of this sort would have to be brought irom a distance, as the country is too thinly populated to ifford any number of hands; that the native'In dians along the coast of Darien are capable #f la bor of the most severe kind, 1 point you to the rem nants ot a large paved military road, which nine from Panama almost entirely to Cruce's, over the mountains, a distance of twenty-one miles. This road of Pizirro's was made more than two hun dred and titty years ago, and was a tremendous undertaking, when we consider the nature of the ground and material. The descendants ot the same race that built that road for the conqueror of Peru are here still, scattered through the forests of the Isthmus, and are quite capable of performing a greater task, if collected together. We have a vast interest in this pass, independent ot the im mediate benefit to commerce, which this project involves. As a nation, our destiny seems last urging us towards the coast of Darien?the barrier is too feeble to protect the prey. Mexico, weak as she appears to us, is powerful, when com pared with every other people on this continent ex cept ourselves. The governments ot Yucatan, Guatemala, and the few independent tribes ot In dians immediately bordering on the Iiihmus, are scarcely worth naming as obstacles. Twenty thou sand well disciplined men from the Mississippi valley, are able to tight through from the Rio Grande to the Isthmus of Darien. That such will oe done alter a generation or two of croakers has passed away, is as certaia as that the people are able to do it, if they will it. It is a shame that so handsome a country should remain in such unim proving hands. The best portions of America are in possession of a worn out race, too weak to flour ish, too proud to toil -a race whose destiny is con nected with nothing but wretchedness and decay. To ease them of their feeble dominion, would be to confer a great benefit to the common interests of the world. The tremendous energy and hardi hood of the old conquerors, has been most strangely followed by every tning that is oppo site in the blood of their children. One can scarcely believe that he sees in the languid torrr.b ol those around him, the descendants of the iron lie roes who fought under Cortez and Pizarro?no nee so reuowaed for ita arms, ever degenerated so rapidly Great roads wasting away?magnificent '-diticei silently crumbling to du?t?batteries with huge breaches made by time, which never could have been madd by hostile cannon, dismounted guns, and Aiined fortifications?on every side a thousand tottering objects tell you of the great power that built them, and of the indolent imbeci lity that permits them to perish. The splendid king, dom wen by the Gastillian chivalry in America, like the decaying Mogul Empire in the time ol Clive, deems to invite anew master. No nation should be indifferent to such a prize, which la able to maintain it. Alaric. Klo Janeiro. [Corre?pondtuee of the Herald.] U. S. sh |) PORTfrMOTirH, > Rio dx Janeiro, Feb. 28, 1845 ) American Ship Building?Our National Vessels Trial of Speed?Very Fast Sailing. Aa there was some excitement stirring in the United States, previous to our sailing, relative to the qualities of the new sloops of war just launch ed, which ended in an order from the Hon. Sccrc tary, for the Portsmouth and Jamestown to sail to gether, in order to test their speed and comfort a? sea boats, I am inclined to think a short accoum ot our parage will be acceptable to you. On the 25th January, 1845, Commoderc Skinnei made the signal to get u. tier way; the wind wat blowing directly out of the liaibor, (llamptoi. Iloads,) and we were soon under way, and passer the Jamrstown before shn had weighed hersn chor. When out side Point Oomtort we hovi to, in order to salute the pennmit, and th Jamestown passed us. More than one oi ?oard our craft was heard to ssy, ?? Ii we beat her we shall have to sail, ant well too." After salutes were exchanged, we squared away, also: she continued standing out ot the harbor, with her topgallant sails set. By the time we were under the Mine oanvaae, ah? wu fully three-fourths cf a mile ahead. The distance ! to Cape Henry light ia about ten miles. As we ga-1 j thered headway, all eyes were bent on her, and j fur the space ot ten minutes no one seenu d even to breathe, bo intense was the anxiety to learn whether ?e gained on her. Soon it was plainly perceptible that we did so, and the old salts gave vent to their feelings in many a hearty " 1 told you so," " Down East cau'i be beat," tec. As soou ac tbey perceived, on board the other ship, that we were gaining on thern, they cracked on royals. We, of course, followed suit. Tbey theu tried trim i ining her, but'twas of no use. Old Poverty Hoi low (as our shii? is familiarly called among the crew) was bound to puss her; and pass her site did, before she had reached the light, beating her three quarters of a mile in ten Daring the time the race was pending dinner had been piped, but not a soul stirred?dinner, grog, and all were for the moment forgotten in the excitement. As soon as the result wasseen,all hands dove down below, and as they devoured Uncle Sam's pork and beuns, discuraed the event which had just occurred, in a most lo gical manner. The pro's and cons were brought forward with as much gusto as if their whole three years whack depended upon it. " New," says an old Old Quartermaster, '"lis true we've beat her, but you fee she's as stifi us a Broadway dandy, with a new belteazer on; wait till she gets the dock-yard cramp out ot her. "Aha! bfg-ir," says a Frenchman, "if dey will only make de signal, we will soon take dat cramp awav, for it is not de Norfolk dock-yard crsm, but, by gar, 'tis de cramp all de way from down East." ''Wait," chimed in a mizen-top ap prentice boy, who hailed from Virginia, "wait till she gets us on a wind, where will down East be thenl" "Why, ahead !" shoutr-.d a ?recn Yankee, "down East is always ahead." "So I see, and be d d to you," growled a quarter-gunner.? This joke and repartee went round till "all hands" were called; when outside we hove too to dis charge our pilot. She passed us in her turn, and by the time we again squared away, was some three or four miles ahead, but we soon made the distance small, and by sunset were again ahead and to windward of her. We soon found we could carry more sail and make belter weather than she did. The second night out it blew quite fresh, and ia the morning'we discovered her tar astern; we waited for her, and when she came up, discovered she was cripplcd?she made signal, she had sprung her main-top gallant inast, and so we lay by her. Things went on in the same way for two or three days, and she having replaced her mast, again pre pared to try us. On the wind was the word at this time. We beat her this way, too, but it was a tight match. At last we lost her in the night, but not till all hands had come to the conclusion that | she was a beat ship. We then made a straight 1 wake for this port, and arrived here after a beautiful passage of 32 days. Our ship is a glo rious sea boat, and is the admiration of the whole harbor, and certainly reflects the greatest credit on her builder, Mr. Delano. List or Officers?John B. Montgomery, Era..

This Geeat Fib* at London, Canada.?April 13, 12 o'clock, noon.?While 1 am now writing, a volt awful conflagration Isgolrgon Atleast one fourth of the town south cut of Robinson Hall Hotel, ia already consumed, and atill the raging fiime proceeds , with un checked fury, to conaume every thing within ita range ? The fire commerced in the back part of the Robinaon Hall Hotel, and the alarm wa? riven juit ai the minuter* were concluding the Church ol England ritual with prayer. A high wind, almost a hurricane, waa blowing nt tbe time; the word "Arts" was heard; tho whole audi ence were appalled, and immediately rushed out, each to his own destination. I proceeded immediately opposite to the Ilobinson Hall Hotel, where I stopped, and had barely time to take my tmnk from the room, when the flames bur?t through the window; an instant later,andl should have had my trunk and everything in it coraumed. Tbe Chief Justice was also stopping at the same hotel, and was at church when tbe alarm waj given. He ha* saved everything. He, with others, found security for our property in the Court House A parfect gale is at this mament blewirg, and the fire is quite umabated; eve rything south east ol Robinson Hall ia either consumed or being consumed. The large three story brick store, in possession ol John Grey, is also consumed, with three other houses adjoining. They were the only buildings north ol the hotel that were burntd. Men, women and ehildren all in contusion; some crying and sinking down in utter despair, mourning their loss; other* eaertiug eve. ry nerve to save their property or their neighbor's. The sight is most melancholy?people seem bewildered I am now writing from the era:e of John Willson, who has had four buildings already consumed. Half past two o'clock.?I have just returned fiom an excursion 1 made down to the foot of Ridout street, end along the brow oi the hill extending alongside of the liv er Thames, to tho breadth of two squares, east of Ridout street; every building on the east side ol Ridout street, from the brick store of Mr. Cray's, to the water's edge, has been consumed, excepting Mr. Strathoy's house, which was the last bit one on Ridout street, while tbe one belew was entirely consumed. A most singular cir cumstance is the fir* having gone round inacirculsr di rection?thl? wa* caused by outbuildings being connect, ed with each other. The house whera the fami y of Col. Clench lives, wa* burning when I eame away, and the hon. Mr. Oeodhue's heuse ia already burned. Mr. Bsix well'* brewery, which is still further south of Colonel Clench's home, was in imminent danger. The fire ex tended from Robinson Hsll ts York *trBet, one *quare in breadth, still tsking every houce on the es*t side ol Hi dout street From Ridout street it proceeded in a diago nal direction, taking two square* in breadth. To the asuth east of Balkwell's brewery, the fire has extended some distance, and although the houses in that quarter are ve ry scattered, yet nothing can impede tho progress of the devouring element Even tbe stumps and log* m the field through which the river Thames runs, are all on fire. The dwelling house and extensive tannery of B. Mom 11 are consumed. The gala still continue* undiminished.? No two element* can effect inch destruction a* fire and wind. Pstroles ol soldiers guarding the property of the unfortunate inhabitants, are itationed in every quarter. I am iuformed that at least 160 families will be rendered houseless by this fearful calamity. Half-past 4 o'clock.?The fire ha* done it* work, svery house within its rage is con'Utned, and it has gone far be yond the Sheriff's house into the woods, where two barns belonging to farmers, have been burned. The loss is es timated variously, some say ?60,000, others less ; but it must bo very great. Tbe principal loser* that I have beard named, are Hyndmanand Marsh, Tanners, or I<000, no insurance; Mathieson and Miehi* grocers, ?6000, uo insurance; Mr. Morrell, ?3 or 4000, insurance to ttie amount of ?900; Holmes k Co , coach factors, ?2000, no insurance. Theae gentlemen aio most unfortunate, hay ing met a severe loss by fire, only a (fortnight since in Hamilton ; Dr. Lee lost his house and all Ins furni'ure, while he in utter ignorance of the loss he wa* sustaining, wa? rendering assistance to hi# neighbors. Mis lots is about ?1600 no Insurance Legear and T8y!or, stage proprietor*, have lost ?040 in bank bill*, which they had ia*t drawn on acsount of their mill contract.

The defendant, in hia anawer, acknowledge* ordering 200 aharea to be bought, but that he waa totally unaware of the existence of auch a stock, until he wm called upon by the witness Coras, about the time the purchase waa made ol the Arat 100 shaies, and it waa further alleged that he waa deceived by the said Corn when he was induced to give hia consent (so lar aa he did consent) and that the re presentation so made were mostly, if not entirely, falsa, groundless, and deceptive, and Ware calculated to mia lead, and dii mialead defendant; and that after the pur chases had been completed, he had ascertained that the atock was almost, if not entirely, worth less, and had no substantial and permanent basis of value. 11 appears that about the period of the aecend pur chate, wh.ch waa about a wetk after the first purchase, the complainant* obtained, through the agency of Coraa, possession of a title deedifcinade to the defendant for a share of the ahip Duncan, accompanied by a note, by which the defendant agreed to deposite the paper with complainants, "on their holding, subject to his order, for sale, 200 shar.s New Haven Canal stock." The share in the vessel waa valued at $1600. The atock immediately afterwarda lapidiy depreciattd, until it reachtd 2# per cent or less, iu a few weeks, at about which price it ha< been stationary. Tbo complainants called upon defend ant to receive the stock, or extcute alien to them on the vessel,| which waa refused. Several witnessee, whose testimony is not very important, were examlucd, from r.hich it appeared the slock reached 70 percent at that period, at which a small parcel wm sold, and it drooped to about 20 per cent; that upwards of about 6000 shares were held at that period, and the larger proportion still held by one Arm o f atock brokera, for acconnt of them selves and others; and upwards of 3C00 shares by anoth er iron; that the whole stock of the canal consists of 12.0S0 shorts only, divided into shares of $26 eaoh; and it also ia shown that the complaiuants pledged 360 ahares about the 6th of July last, for a loan of 000, which would place tne atock worth about $2 28 per share, or about ten per cent- although the witness testiAM that it would have brought more at the Board. The complainants make a point before the Chancellor that they prove the piuchaM, on account of the defend ant, of 300 shares, and are entitled to be paid the full amount of the purchase money, wi'Ji intereat; they also urge some minor point*. The Vice Chancellor decided, that the complainants have a lien on the vessel, and that the stock thereof be sold hv a matter in chancery , and also the 300 ahares New Haven Canal stock be alao sold, and the proceeds paid to complainants to ameantol their claim, with coats.
