The reduction in the amount of the debt of tho city of Boston, has been about one hundred thoi isand dollars a year for the past five years. It was at ita highest point, on the first day of May, 1840, and the reduction has been as annexed L)kbt ok the City or Boston, 1946. Amount of Debt May 1st, 1840 $t,69t?.,232 50 During the financial years subsequent to the above montioned date, the debt was reduced as follows :? In 1840 '41 $34,432 56 1841 '42 69,100 00 1842 '43 76,000 00 1813 '14 03,000 00 1844 '45 262,433 38 Making the entiro reduction of the debt within the last fivo years $534,965 04 And leaving the amount of the city debt on 1st of May, 1845 $1,163,266 62 It is possible tho debt of Boston will be increased in the course of a year or two very much, as several pro. jests are on foot to introduco water into the city from * some of their neighboring ponds or riven, upon a scale aimilar to the Croton here. The personal liability law, which passe 3 at the recent session of the Legislature of New Hampshire, is likely to prove a sourco of trouble and great disadvantage to the incorporated companies of that Stato. Several banks in the State are closing up their business, and as fast as the charters of others expire, they will go into liquidatiop. Incorporated companies intending to do a just and <egiti' mate banking business, have very little fear frora tj,e per" aenal liability law. It is only those institutions that wish to extend their operations, and upon a nominal capital to do as much business and get out as Krge a circulation as their credit will permit, that are effected by any ad ditional responsibility this taw may put upon the stock] holder*. The citizen* of New Hampshire, or any other State, having this law upon their statute books, need not feel the least alarm. Thiere will be plenty of banking in stitutions glad to do business under this restriction, and those that ? jo conti'aue, must be considered sound and safe conce rns. There is no good reason why partners in banks, an A other incorporated companies, should not be personally liablo 4as much as partner* in private mer cantile Ijouses. They have privileges enough without having the power to tkrow upon the Market their promi ses to -pay to a large amount, and not be held responsible to the public for their redemptioa. The introduction of this clause in the law regulating incorporated companies and in the charters of these companies, will compel them to pursue a more legitimate business than they have heretofore, and institute more minute investigations into their operations than usual. It makes it necessary for stockholders to look more closely after their own inter est, and by frequent examinations satisfy themselves that the business of the institutions, with which they are con nected, and for the soundness of which they are indivi dually responsible, are not deviating from a legitimate line of operations, or endangering in any way the credi derived from the public. This personal liability clausc in the charters of banking institutions, will do more to. wards keeping the banks in a solvent condition, and more uniform in their operations, than all the laws requiring monthly or quarterly return* the legislatures might per. feet. A suit tins lately been decided in the United States District Court, sitting iu Boston, of considerable impor tance both to collectors, and master* of vessels arriving from foreign ports. A, vessel arrived at Boston sometime since from a port iu the West Indies, with a cargo sub ject to duty. The manifest was duly deposited in the Custom House, ar jd sworn to by the captain as contain ing a true and p erfcct list of the articles comprising his cargo. Subse quently it was discovered that other arti cles were on, board, entry of which had not been made on the manifest, and the captain was accordingly prose cuted in '^e District Court for perjury. In the course of the trrj jt came up in evidence that as the captain had not ? jgned the manifest with his own name, previous to Administration of the oath, he was entitled to an ac. '.{Uital, which was granted, and the master discharged.? Jt appears that in a majority of cases, masters of vessels do not sign their manifests, and this decision will cause this to be done in all cases by the Collectors of the Cus toms throughout the Union. The Monroe Railroad, of Georgia, and all the property, equipments and effects therewith connected, are to be ?old at auction. A special decree to the effect has re cently been made, with the written consent of parties' without any interposition or instruction from tho Court. Five Commissioners have been appointed to su perintend the sale, receive the proceeds and deposit them in the Agency of the Mochanics' Bank of Angusta, at Macon, Geo. It was also provided that the creditors should be publicly notified to file their claims in the Clerk's office by tho first Monday in October next. It was further decreod that the purchasers of said road should succeed to all the obligations of the company, in respect to the completing, equipping, and keeping the said road in operation, but that these obligations should not extend to a liability of debts contracted prior to said sale ; that alter said sale, the entire road, stock, Sto' should be transferred to said purchasers. It was furthe r decreed, that in tho interim, until the day of sale, the re* ceipts of the road should be applied to the keeping of tho road in operation. Wo annex a tablo showing the amount of duties which accrued on imports aud tonnage, exclusive of drawback paid, for tho years 1813 and 1843, so compiled as to exhibit the amount of duties upon imports and ton nage by States nnd Territories respectively. The gross amount collected on imports in lM4i was more than twice as large as in 1843, and in tonnage more than four times as large. The decrcaie in both can be traced in the table, to New York, Massachusetts, Maryland and Louisiana. The duties on tonnage were larger in South Carolina in 1813 than in New York, and in 1849 the du" ties on tonnage of Louisiana were greater than all the other (States put together.

CRISTIE respectfully informs the American public that he has lately arrived from England, lor the purpose of introducing in this country, the novel application of Electro Galvanism discovered by his brother, Professor Her man Cristie of London, in October last. The discovery his received the universal approbation of the medical profession of Great Britain, who have pronounced it among the most im portant of modern scientific inventions. The Patent Galvanic Riii|(s have been found to answer all the purposes for which the ordinary galvanic battery, or electric and magnetic ma chines are used, but are without any of the injurious shocks which always accompany the application by these iustrn meuts, and in many other respects are more safe and certain in accomplishing thv desired object. The Galvanic Rings have now been several months before the English public, and the universal reputation they have ac quired are sufficient evidence of their extraordinary power in the prevention ami cure of the diseases for which tliey are re commended. They have been used with perfect success in all cases of rheumatism, gout, lie doloreux, sick headache, indiges tion, paralysis, stiff joints, general debility, deficiency of ner vous energy, and all nervous disorders. The ralvauic power which they possess is gradual and constant, and the beneficial effects they produce upon the system must be witnessed to be believed. The Galvanic Rings are iu every way perfectly harmless, and are sold at prices that are within the reach of ail desirous of testing their efficacy. Dr. Cristie warns the Am, rion public from the beginuing, to beware of spurious imita tions. The only agency at present in the United States is at 134 FULTON STREET, a few doors from Broadway, in this city, and from the secret process by which the metals are pre pared to be rendered sensitive and efficient, all imitations must ?e entirely devoid of any galvanic effect. Criitie's Magnetic Fluid, used in connection with the Rings, in more chronic dis orders, and to accelerate the galvanic actiou, is only to be pro cured at the same place. m28 3tis*rh PLANTERS' k MERCHANTS' BANK OF MOBILE.

Office for the sale of the Original Genuine PULMONIC SYRUP, At No. 40 1-i) Cortlamlt street, New York, at usual. fmera r un. the people. SOME YEARS AOO I wu cured of a severe and danger ous illness by a Syrup made from an old Indian recipe, and beiiiK strongly urged Dy my friends as well as by the considera tion tint mucn good might he done through the extensive intro duction of the Syrup to tlx* public, I entered into an \rraiige ment for that purpose, and located myself at No. 49,l? Courtland street, in the city of New York. Having confidence in a young man by the name of Schenck, I had a verbal understanding with him, and the medicine was sold in his name, and a true state ment of my cure by the Syrup iu his name, in the form of a cer tificate, was published and widely circulated. 1 continued this connection until 1 had reason to believe this person was deviating from the understanding. Complaint alter complaint had come in to me relative to the variability and strength of the Syrup. Thinking that a written agreement might be more effectual, I requested one, but it was declined. I could overlook and pardon auy merely personal matter, but my repu tation was too completely iuterwoven with the reputation of this valuable medicine: I, of course, felt that whatever affected the one would extend its consequences to the other. I had encountered large expenditures in establishing and con ducting this business. My time and attention were devoted ex clusively to it. These influences, based upon my well known character, and the certificate of my cure, with my advice to nu merous patients or their friends, who called at my office, as well as to others whom I visited both in the city and country, and the gradually increasing and now wide-spread popularity of my treatment of consumptiou, colds, coughs, diseases of the organs of respiration, as well as the liver complaint and dyspepsia, have caused great numbers to make application to me, most of whom I have been the means of benefitting aud restoring to health.? Results like these were truly gratifying, and I diunot feel wil ling that the advantages thus arising to all should be lost; nor could I conscientiously permit my sphere of uselulness to be narrowed through the neglect or variation of any other. To those who know ine personally, and the history of my Sy rup, it is unnecessary to say that I hold the old original receipt, and have the most accurate knowledge of the only correct me thod of preparing this medicine through all its different stages. And ill order to render it free from all impurities, as well as to insure its lull and uniform strength, without the use of that kind of heat which tends to destroy the medical properties of some of the most effective ingredients. 1 have the aid of a discovery and the application of an imporved and only suitable apparatus by whicli these objects can be successfully attained. Complaints of inefficacy, blackish color, and variable strength can never arise from my process, the knowledge and employment of which are confined exclusively to myself. The young man whose name has been incidentally mentioned being no longer interested in my business, has, I am told, set up for himself, or at least opened an office in this city ^ I wish him all the success that he may justly deserve. He invites the pub lic, 1 am informed, to come and buy his genuine Syrup, and

wisely enough cautions it againstadulteratedcompounds. The Original Genuine Pulmonic Syrup prepared iu this city exclusively by myself is for sale in New York, oni.v at my old established office, I9,1. Courtland st, one door below Greenwich street. P. S.

IT IS TRULY CONTEMPTIBLE to see the mean and truckling expedients some will resort to when they find themselves going down hill,'' to prop up their falling reputa tion ; even that might Ik; tolerated to some extent, ana sympa *hy extended bv the charitable portion of the community when truth is adher d to, but when thev descend to falsehood, it is high time they were exposed ami held up to the justly merited odiuin they deserve. The subscriber is accused, by a person. V descend to lai*elio?U, it 1* held up to the justly merited of vending a spurious article called Tricopherous, and that it lias materially injured those who have used it. Now, can there be any thing more flagrant than this ! The subscriber throws back the foul assertion, and calls ill on the thousands who have used his Tricopherous to say if it has not, in nine cases out ol ten, far exceeded even that which A. C. Barry warrants it to perform. A highly respectable gentleman from Racine, Wis consin territory, at present residing at one of the hotels in this city, whose name and address can be seen by any one who wish es it, called upon the subscriber the other day and stated that his lady's hair had been entirely resto-vd by the use of Ins (A. C. B's)Tricopherous, she having nearly lost it by some cause or other, and at the same time to give an order for a large sup ply to his uumerotis friends in that section of the country. This is only one of the thousand instances that could be given of the wonderful cures effected by the use of Barry'* Tricopherous.? Away, then, with such miserable and abortive attempts to pre judice and put down an article that lias been upheld and patron ized for the last two or three year* by some of the moat dis tinguished physicians in and out of this city, and by a discern ing and enlightened public. A. C. Barry, until recently, had no intention of extending the sale of his Tricopherous beyond hi* atore in Broadway ; hut having been *olicited time* with out number to establish it over the Union, he has at last taken theiradvice: and intends to do so as soon as practicable. It is I no proof of the superiority of the other article over hit, that a I few respectable ageuts are brought forward to vouch for it* respectability, for A. C.B. ha* in no instance requested agents, until the other day, he did so by advertisement. He therefore leaves his Tricopherous to be tested by the community at large, and by their fiat will heitand or fall. A. C. BARRY, m28 2t*m Arti?t in Hair, 1)6 Broadway.

Waihlnnu>n. _ [C'orre*poudence of the Herald.J Washington, May 27, 1H15 A Phdadeljihiu Penny Paper, and the Curreipoiulent ?The New Rule of " Decencies of the^Pnu" laid down by Mr. Ritchie?The Duties of the Prem. j 1 |)erceive that one of the Philadelphia penny lepers, in search of government patronage, insinu ates that I am one of a lured corps of writers in the employ of the leader of one of the factions, into which the great political parties are divided, and that the developments which 1 have made, are made out of a spirit of opposition to Mr. Polk, and as sumes to itself the possession of an immense influ ence, with which it will come to the aid of Mr. Polk against my attacks. This miserable imbecile of a newspa|>er sheet, which is in the regular habit of stealing intelligence from my letters, without giving credit, will never forgive the HeruJd f#r its superior enterprize, energy, ability, and independence, which have made it the most influential paper in the United States, and can not conceive of an honest, independent spirit, stri i ving to disembarrass the truth from all entangle | aients of party, and present facts to the minds and I understandings of the |>eople. It has been accus tomed to ex|>ect a <piid pro quo for its support, and cannot conceive nor understand that sincere friend ship to the administration, which desires te nee it succeed on principle, and therefore tellsthe truth and exposes intrigue wherever it is found. I advise the aforesaid penny paper to learn to be honest, to gire credit where credit is due, before it assumes the character of a mentor. I presume that according to the new rule of the "decencies of the press," laid down by father Ritchie in the "organ," that the exposure which 1 am about to make will be styled by him paying "no regard to the decencies of the press." But is it to be under stood that women shall exert their influence, power ful and effective as it is, in the di-bursement of offi cial patronage or appointments?that they shall in terfere so as to produce important political effects, and that they may thus exert themselves, and that forsooth because they are women th?y are not to be alluded to, nor the influence which they wield brought to light 1 Is this to pay regard to the "de cencies of the press T' I have a far higher concep tion of the duties required of those placed in the responsible position in which are all those engaged in writing for the public press! I believe it is my duty to show the influence which they wield, and particularly when it is wielded as is that of the lady to whom I am about to allude, and no taunts or sneers from Mr. Ritchie will induce me to swerve from the course I believe to be right. When femaJe influence is wielded to put relatives in office till fumilies become quartered on the public, and inter woven together, till one family and its immediate connections draw more than #50,000 per annum from the public treasury, and yet are not satisfied, but are continually crying for more, like the insatia ble horseleech, 1 think it is time for the press to interfere. * * * * # [Here follows the history, with the names, at length, of the influence and efforts of a most excel lent and worthy lady of a certain city, in combining interest enough, by her extraordinary talents, great beauty, splendid accomplishments, to give office to thirteen connections by blood or marriage, the ag gregate emoluments amounting to forty-three thous and dollars of solid money per annum.? We decline, altogether, publishing the list or the names, deeming it a matter of little moment to the public, further than the exis tence of the general fact. Indeed, we rather admire the clique, and all its influences, both in the male and female line. But the truth is, all j?arties, and all governments are made, more or less, of cliques, com posed of equal proportions of male and female. Why should it be condemned more in one than another. The social and political elements run into each other, and must always do so. We deem our cor respondent wrong, both in judgment and taste, in bringing forth such matters.?Ed. Herald.'] General Armstrong, appointed and confirmed Con sul to Liverpool, is now in this city, having arrived yesterday direct from Tennessee. When he left, General Jackson was much the same as he has here tofore been represented, and General Armstrong says he " should not be surprised to hear of his death by the next post. It is very uncertain. 1 saw a page of foolscap pa|>er closely covered with writing, in the old General's own hand, which was pennea en the 16th inst. The penmanship is as firm and dis tinct as that of any young or middle aged man I ever saw. Not a shake or tremor about it, but firm and distinct in every stroke. He is certainly a wonder ful man." Commodore Bolton has obtained a short leave of absence from his post at the Norfolk Navy Yard, where he is in command, and has come on to this city for two or three weeks, to see the President and Heads of Departments, and his old friends. I learn that the Postmaster General and his First Assistant, Major Hobbie, are actively engaged in making arrangements to facilitate the Great South ern Mail. When they are all complete, there will be a gain of something like twenty-four hours be tween Boston and New Orleans, from what there was a few weeks ago.

Awful Cataitrophe at the Race Count?The Killed and t founded. A most awful cataitrophe has just occurred at the Race Course, the fatal consequence of which it is impossible, at present, to estimate. The pavilion, a frame building of three stories in height, having been occupied by a larger number than it was adequate to support, say 1600 or '2000, yielded to the immenso weight and fell to the earth. The accident occurred at the moment Fashion and Pcytona were brought on the ground, about half past one. The immense assemblage present, over ten thousand, was immediately thrown into the utmost hor ror, disorder and alarm. Nothing can as yet be ascer tained of the extent of injury sustained. The roof of the building, shook by the efforts of those upon it to get a glimpse of thp races, was the first to give way, aud sunk upon the lower loft, crushing a large number of those beneath, and pitching a still greater number from its surface to the earth, a distance of fifty feet?a large number of those also were maimed and mangled in a most awful manner. After an interval of about half a minute, the sides of the building fell out, aad the whole edifice tumbled to the earth, crushing hundreds in its fall. Had there not been a few second* allowed for those on tho first and second floor* to escape, thousands would have been instantaneously crushed to death?as it is, we fear that several will hardly survive, and hundreds have, without doubt,been wounaed in such a way as to disable them lor life. Humor has mugnified the number of the killed to sev eral hundred?this is an unnecessary and cruel exagge ration, and will, no doubt, be made capital of by the cor respondents of the New York press, severel of whom we saw on the ground, and one of whom we know to be base enough to take advantage of any accident, howev er fearful to concoct or agonizing. We therefore cau tiou the friends of those present?there were a large number of New Yorkers on the ground?to disregard those vile scribblcr*. and to rest assured, that though a very large number are terribly mutilated and mangled, not more than two or three are fatally wounded. No languago nordo/.ons of letters, could uepict the horrible scene presented by tho vast assemblage after tho occurrence of tho catastrophe. The shrieks of the wounded, tho screams of those buried under the fallen roof and timbers, and their cries for relief, the terror, sympathy, and anxiety of those having friends and rela tives in the building, combined to filfthe heart with an guish and horror. Will it be believed, that in the midst of scene so frightful ami affecting, not a few of the gam blers and pickpockets, who always congregate on such occasions, rushed upon tho ground where the unfortu nate victims lay stunned and senseless, and made evory effort to rob them o( such property as they might have upon their persons. Such, however, is a race coarse ? let every man that values character and safety avoid them. (treat praise is due to the promptness and assiduity of the medical men present, whoso humanity and attention to tho wounded aud suffering. demand our utmost praise and highest commendation. To Dr. Parish especially, i? the public indebted for an example of professional prompt ness, tenderness, and nkill, which words are inadequate to appreciate. No sooner was the rejiort of the accident carried to the city, than this excellent and worthy phy sician hurried to the forrv, by which the sufferers were brought to the city, and tendered them grati* hi* aid and attention. There is a rumor that the man who was leading out Fashion, was struck by one of the fallen rafters upon the head. This we know to be false, having witnessed the whole melancholy occurrence, and seen no such acci dent. The mail being about to close, we are obliged to post pone further particulars till to-morrow's mail, when we shall givo the ascertained number oi the killed and wounaed. Philadelphia, Y1?y 1*46.
