Sut?Your valuable and interesting paper being the vehicle ?through which the public derive much useful information generally, and particularly as to the best and most pleasant means of conveyance from one point to another of our extended territory, with comfort and despatch, I beg to call the atten tion of the travelling public to the steamer Indiana, as a mode of conveyance through our western lakes, unsurpassed in speed, comfort and rapidity?the three most desirable considerations in travelling by steamboat. The Captain, G. C.jRoby, Esq., knows how to make his passengers comfortable and at home, and his vigilant care is extended through eve ry department of his profession. Amiable and gen tlemanly in his manners and deportment, kind and attentive to all who place themselves under his charge, prompt and energetic in the performance of every duty?ne inspires his passengers with that confidence so necessary to a pleasant trip through our lakes. The sailing-master, Mr. Watts, deserves particu lar notice also. He has been a long time upon the lakes, and fully understands his business. He will never be cauuht napping, or by any inattention to his business risk the lives of the passengers and crew of this noble boat. The gentlemanly steward, and the obliging and attentive oroprietor of the saloon, also come in tor a share of tliat praise so justly due to all on board the Indiana. Without any intention to detract from the merits of any of the floating palaces on our western waters, let 111c say that the better the Indiana is known, die greater will be th? estimate in which she will be held by the travelling public, who I am sure will thank you for inserting this brief notice for dieir benefit. Respectful^, Sauanaw. Affairs of the Mormons.?We find the follow ing in several of our Western exchange papers.? There appears to be an increasing excitement against the Mormons in the vicinity of the city of Joseph. Sooner or later, unless the authorities interfere, .a bloody tragedy will be enacted among the Mormons.? The people who reside in the vicinity of Nauvoo, are evidently much exasperated against the followers^ Joe Smith, and thus staries are constantly circulatcd?many of then, we incline to the opinion, without foundation?of murders and other outrages committed by the Mormons. Already more than once, threats of assassination have been held out, and the following, from a recent number of the Prankfvrt (Ky.) Commoruntalth, indicates the de gree of apprehension that exists among the threatened: His Excellenoy, Governor Owsley, lias received a me morial from the "Quorum of Twelve" and the Trustees of the "Church of Jesus Christ, of Latter I)ay Saints," despatched from Nauvoo by a special messenger, in whioh the Mormon* appeal most earnestly to His Excel lency to interfere, and bv his "personal influence and official rank''shield them from threatened dispersion and destruction. They implore the Governor to "convene a special session of the Legislature" aad "furnish them an asylum" from oppression. They conclude their me morial by a general prayer to the Governor to "lend his immediate aid to quell the violence of mobocracy, and to exert his influence to establish them, as a people, in their civil and religious rights, where they now are, or in some part of the United States, or some place remote therefrom." We understand the Governor to be decidedly in favor of "some place remote therefrom," and that he declines for the present issuing his proclamaton for a special ses sion of the Legislature, to provide the Mormons with an "Asylum" in Kentucky. Anti-Rent Outrage?Attempt to Shoot Sher iff Sedgwick.?One of the most daring outrages that has taken place in this county since the breaking out of the Anti-Kent disturbances, took place in Taugh kanic on Kriday last, when an attempt was made by a party of disguised "Indians" to shoot down Deputy Sheriff 8edgwick and constable Traver. Mr. S. had a process to dispossess Freeman Hand, a tenant of Robert Swift Livingston, and took with him for the purpose of assisting bum, Constables Traver and Algar, who pro ceeded down to Taughkanic on Thursday to execute the process, but owing to the rain, Mr. S. concluded he would postpone the service until the next day, as he did not wish to put the fataily out into the storm, although he had called upon Mr. Hand a number of times and gave him notice to quit. On Friday morning they left their wagon at David K. Tripp's, in Ancram, about a mile and a half from the house, and proceeded to the premises on foot. After arriving there and making known their business, Mr. Hand begged Mr. Sedgwick not to put his things out, and Mr. Sedgwick told him that he had put it oil a number of times already at his solicita tion, but if he would give him security that he would leavo the next week, ne would let the things remain ; this he refused te do, and Mr. S. commenced removing the things ; before he had proceeded far, however, Tho mas Morgan, a Constable in that neighborhood, arrested Mr. Scdgwick on a writ for " trespass." Mr. 8. told the Constable that he was willing to answer the summons, and would go with him at once before the Magistrate. The ("onstable said he should endanger his life by going with him, but he might go and deliver himielf up to the Justice if he had ? mind to. This Mr. 8. refused to do, but told the Constable that he would accompany him if requested ; this the Constable refused to do. While en gaged in taking the goods from the house, they were fired upon by " disguised!ndians" who were in the edge of the woods, so far off, however, that the shot had no efl'ect, al though they struck the house. After performing their duty in removing the goods, lie., Mr. Sedgwick and the others started for their team, accompanied by constable Morgan; they had not proceeded far before three "dis guised Indians" made their appearance on a small rise of ground about 80 pacos from them, who immediately call ed out to the men with the Sheriff" to get away from him if they did not want to be shot, and almost immediately tired. The guns were loaded with buck-shot, and on the first fire Mr. Traver was hit on the side of his head . Mr. 8. was next hit, some shot going through his hat and one lodging in his head: he was staggered a little by this discharge, and had notnilly recovered before he receiv ed another charge in his thigh, where a number took effect. Mr. 8. and those with him then left the road and got out of the range of the woods into the cleared fields ; here the cowardly assassins dared not follow, and they met with no further opposition. We are happy to state that neither Mr. Sedgewick nor Mr. Traver were seri ously injured, although they experienced some incon venience from the shot.?Hudton Gaz. May 37. U. S. Iron Steamer Michigan.?We had the pleasure on Wednesday of visiting, for the first time, the war steamer Michigan, and looking at all her excel lent "appointments." She is indeed a noble vessel, per fect in all her parts, and as neat from the sailors' mess to tho Captains' naloon, as a lady's boudoir. We were par ticularly struck by the perfect finish and compactness of her engine, and tho admirable arrangement of the coal bin* along the sides of the vessel, forming an impene trable mass, by which the boilers and machinery are se curely protected from injury by an enemv'i shot. Great skill and good taste has been displayed in the economy and arrangement of the rooms for the commander and ward room officers, as also for the quarters of the men, ! the larger and central portion of the vessel being taken up by the boilers, engine, and coal reservoir*. Several contrivances of great usefulness to a vessel navigating the shoal waters of the lakes, have been introduced, wo believe, at the suggestion of the present commander one of which struck us as particularly serviceable?it being n gaged instrument, by which tho prccise draft of water fore and aft, can be ascertained at any moment.?

We have been kindly furnished by an officer on board, with tho following description of the Michigan, and a list of the officer* attacheil, which we annex. The name of the first Lieutenant will be recognized by many, as a son of one of our oldest citizens, and himself long a resident of the State, and perfectly familiar with our lakes. Length of keel 1M feet 4 inches; length of deck 107 feet? inches; length ever all 17b feet 6 inehes; breadth of beam 57 feet; extreme breadth 45 feet 10 inches; depth of hold 13 feet; mean draught of water when launched 4 feet 1J inches; draught or water when fully equipped lor service 8 feet.

This ship and the engines were built by Mr. Samuel Stackhouse, of the firm of Stackhouie *i Tomlinson, at Pittsburg, in 1843, and launched at Krie, Pa., 0th Decem ber, 184-J. The engines were designed by Mr. Charles W. Copeland, IT. 8. Naval Engineer, and the ship by Mr. Samuel Hartt, U. S. Naval Constructor. The Michigan i* considered by competent judge*, to be one of the be*t iron steamers of her class afloat. Her performance* un der steam have been highly creditable. Her battery at present consists of but one sixty-four pound Paixhan gun. She is constructed for 14 gun*, viz: two 64 pound er*, and twelve 33 pound csrrronados.

In yesterday's Herald, u wish is expressed for in formation on the point, whether the truth is not a de fence in a civil action for a libel. The whole sub ject is fully discussed in Starkie on Slander, Wen dell's edition, vol. 1, chapter 9, and vol. 2, chap. 12. There never has been a doubt, with well informed lawyers, but that "the defendant is justified in law, and exempt from all civil res|>oiisibility,if that which he publishes be true"?1st Starkie, 204. The only question has been in criminal prosecu tions. Here the gist or graveatnen of the proceeding is the tendency of the publication to a breach of the peace, which constitutes it an otfence against the public. In England, the tauth of a libel on an indi vidual is no defence to a crirtiinal information or in dictment. In this State, howeVer, by Section 7th of Article 7th, of the Constitution, and by chapter Jth, part 1st, section 21, of the Revised Statutes, in all prosecutions or indictments for libels, the truth may be given in evidence to the jury; and if it shall appear to the jury that the matter charged as libel lous is true, and was published with good motives, and for justifiable ends, the party shall be acquitted; and the jury shall have the right to determine the law and the fact." So that in New York the truth is a justification, both in civil suits for damages, and in criminal pros ecutions for punishment, and Mr. Cooper is quite right in saying, that our f ourts have never ruled that the truth is not a complete defence in a civil ac tion. Thie could hardly be,when it is expressly made so, even on un indictment. Jirisconsult. Mr. Editor:? Please call the attention of the new Board of Al dermen and Assistants to the filthy and disgraceful condition of the streets. l>oes not the ordinance require that the streets shall be cleaned on two days in each week 1 The present incumbenst have now been two weeks in power, and the streets have not been, or attempted to be cleaned, (at least some of them.) This neglect does not redeem the promises "to clean up the streets as soon as we get the pow er." It will be well also to notify the present incum bents, that to retain the power they must give satis faction to the electors; to do which they have to give us clean streets, protection in our persons and pro perty, and a reduction of the per centage of the ag gregate of the assessed value of the real and per sonal estates in the city: that no excuse will be re ceived for disappointing this reasonable expectation of the tax-pavers.

Mitchell, See'y. ^ ooouoooooeooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooeo Ever since the explosion of the State Hank of Illi nois und the Shawneetown Bunk, the State of Illi nois has been dependent for her paper circulating medium upon other States. Ohio and Michigan have chiefly supplied her paper currency, and great ly have the farmers of this devoted State been shaved by irresponsible bank issues. One institution, lo cated in die Territory of Wisconsin, furnishes now a large portion of the currency for northern Illinois, andpiouthern and western Michigan. It is called the Wisconsin Marine and Fire Insurance Comimny, and is located at Milwaukie. The capital stock is owned in Europe, and its affairs are conducted en tirely by foreigners and are in the hands of brokers exclusively. It purports to exercise banking powers under a section of its charter, which allows tne issu ing of certificates of deposit. These certificates, al though really issued at Chicago, assume on their face to be issued at Milwaukie, and are redeemable at that point in coin. No one can doubt but that the legislature of Wis consin never intended that a Company, chartered for the purpose of insuring against losses by fire and water, should exercise banning privileges; nor is it less questionable, that the issuing of that paper in Illinois is a violation of the laws of that State, and yet the paper of this Institution is scattered profusely through the north-west. What amount of paper is in circulation, no one can tell?probably a large amount, it would do well for the public to watch carefully this institution, as the recent failure of the St. Clair Bank at Detroit clearly proves that no bank is to be relied upon, whose sole support is the per sonal liability or security of any individual, no mat ter how wealthy he may be reputed. We trust that the Trustees of the Illinois and Mi chigan Canal, when they enter upon the discharge of their duties, will disburse along the line the same kind of funds they receive from the bondholders, viz. specie or its equivalent. The people of Illinois have a right to ask this as a matter of right; it will furnish them with a good currency and will stop one of, at least, doubtful character. It will save the mer chants the rate of exchange which they have been compelled to pay, and which has tended to enrich the coffers of a soulless foreign corporation. Mijkdekino in Jest?a very strange circum stance.?A very singular circumstance, involving a duel and death, took place at Cincinnati last Tuesday.? An Englishman named Robert Bland kept a tavern in that city. On the afternoon of Tuesday,as we learn from the "Commercial," Mr. Bland got to Rrguing with oae Samuel Tow ell on the subject of shooting at a mark, and each bad been boasting of his skill. From shooting at a mark, the subject turned on duelling, when Bland went behind the bar in his tavern and took up a pair of pistol* letting Powell take his choice, signifying that they could determine the point by a trial of skill. As they both wont out of tho tavern door, Mr. B. sale to Powell, "the pistols are loaded." They hail agreed, it appears, to fire at a distance of twenty steps, hut after taking their posi tions, in the manner of duilists, they each walked aDout two or three paces, wheeled, and both fired The result of this was, that Mr. Bland was shot, the ball entering the right side and then passing through the region of the chest to the point of the shoulder blade, where it lodged. He lingered till about half past eight o'clock next morn ing, when he died, leaving a wife and two children.? Both parties in this tragedy were natives of Cngland,aad what led to it is a mystery. During the night following Mr. B. stated that "he had not intended to kill Powell, and was glad be did not" Dread Fin. Suicide?The coolest and most deliber ate suicide we ever heard of, was that of Philip Smith, a German in this city, yesterday morning, at hie boarding house. He went to bed as usual, had money plenty?$106 DO in his belt; was a sober.industrious man, respected by his shopmates, and had been working at sheemaking here for the last nine years. About S o'clock he attempted to cut his throat with a knife, while in bed, and succeeded in making a gash, but not in ending life. He then got up, went into an adjoining room, took a razor and severed the caretoidd artery, producing imme diate death.? Cincinnati Commercial, May 33. From Osaoe River.?Two flatboats arrived yes terday from the Osage river laden heavily with pro luce. Persons who came down upon them report the river in a good stage at tho time of their leaving, which was on the 38th instant, and from five to six feet water on the principal bars ; they also state freights to be very plenty on that stream. At Osceola there were two or threo boat-loads of hemp, wheat, and tobacco, waiting a boat to bring it out. At Warsaw and several other points along, there was a considerable amount in warehouses waiting a shipment.? St. Louit New Era, May 17. Isle Royale, Lake Superior.?We see it stated that the Hudson Bay Company have taken posses sion of Isle Royale, Lake Superior. This Island belongs to the United States, and contains two fine harbors. Whoever has possession of this island in time of war, commands the lake. If the statement be correct, it is manifestly the duty of our government to despatch a small force to Isle Royale immediately, to oust the in truders of the Hudson Bay Company. Missouri Rivkr.?The Missouri river is reported to be in a worse condition now for navigation than it has been known for years before. The channel has almost formed anew and is terribly beset with snags, logs, stumps, and sand-bare.? St. Louit New Era, May 17.

Trayer, the steeple-king, ascended to the top of the Third Church steeple, in Pittsburg, on Friday, 33d in stant, snd put a new vane on it, we believe. His hat has been on the top of the spire, over the ball, for some dayi; he removed it, flourished it around his head, and threw* it down; and after standing on the cross pieces and riving one or two cheers, descended, bringing down with him the ladders, ropes, lie. used by him in repairing the steeple. Quite a number were looking at tne fearless fellow, and his wife was a spectator of the scene. The steeple is 1AA feet high. The steamboat "Hard Times," has been seized at Louisville.
