Suicide of the late Secretary of State?Tampering with the Pardoning I'ower?Renurrectioninti?J1 Cote, in Point The Harney Cast?Trial for Manslaughter?Small Pox ? The Custom Haute Siliemers, fyc. The reception of tlie news of the suicide ofWm. Van Dunkirk, C?|., at Cumberland, Md., late Secretary of State, under Governor Thomas, did not cause much sur prise in this city among those who knew him duiing his resilience at Annapolis. It has been confidently asserted that from the time of his acceptance of that office until the close of Governor Thomas'term, he had never known a sober moment, and through the imbecility of mind occasioned thereby, was leail by designing men in this city to inflict many a blow on the honor of the State. With a Governor la boring under a mental hallucination of some kind, in duced by jealousy of his wife, the whole authority of the State wus vested In the secretary,and it is a known lact that men of standing in this city received fees frem the friends of the most notorious Convicts to go to Annapolis, and by plying liquid poison to the unfortunate Secretary, securo forthem a pardon. The "Swingletree" gang were par doncd, and other murderers set free, whilst the doors of the penitentiary were also widely extended for the egress of rioters, thieves, and burglars. It may be a matter ef gratulution to them that tho unfortunato victim of their ciiminal tampering is out of the way as a witness against their conduct, though I have thought it might be as well to assure them'tlmt there are othcrsyet living cognizant of all the facts in the ease Mr. Van Uuskirk was rathorto be pitiod than condemned for his participation in the matter, as his mode of life was caused by an effort to drown the remembrance of the most severe and heart rending family aflliction, which has finally driven him to seek for donth as a relief therefrom. During the pnst winter tho medical men of this city have mude many successful efforts to secure for dissec tion the bodies of persons who have died of doubtful diseases that were not buiied in vaults. They have a band of organized resurrectionists constantly in pay ; one of whom, a negro, some months since, came to his death by a pistol shot filed at him whilst pursuing his unlawful vocation In other large cities, there is gene rally enough subjects to be obtained from the hospitals and alms-houses, but in this city such is not the caso, and it becomes necessary to rob tho graves, alike of rich and poor, many of which, if now examined, would be found to contain'nought but empty coffins. This reminds ntc of a case which occuried not very long since, but whieh was never noticed in tiie papers, having been hushed up by the purties conccrned. it was the ease of an old lady, of a highly respectable family, who had died of a disease which nallled the skill of tho physicians in attendance, and they had her taken up on the very night of her inter ment. About two weeks after, her daughter had n dream, which left the impression on her mind that the body of her mother had been stolon from the grave, and she, being a little superstitious, had the coffin taken up. The result proved that the impression was too well founded, and it is now rogirrded by many of the friends of the family as having been a supernatural visitation. The llarney case is still progressing in tho City Court, the arguments in the case commencing yesterday. I find that the sketch of the case 1 gave in my last letter, em bodies all the particulars. The amount of damages awarded by the jury, it is thought, will fall greatly 6hort of the $36,000 claimed. Aln the District Court yesterday, the case of Abraham Johnson, colored, indicted for the manslaughter of Jas. Drummond, on board tho brig Orleans, on her way to this port, was brought on and disposed of. It was proved that the parties had had a little difficulty,which resulted in a small scratch on tho prisoner's nose, and that a few minutes after, when it was supposed to have been all set tled, the prisoner rushed on the deceased, with knife in hand, ana stabbed him to the heart. Johnson was the cook, and Drummond one of the sailors on board of the vessel. The jury, after a short absence, returned a ver dict of guilty. Tho ravages of the small pox in this city still continue and what is worse still, I have heard of several cases whore death has ensued from the want of attention. A fem'ale died on Kelt's Point last week, who hail been en tirely deserted. On beins: discovered by a good Samari tan, she asked for a drink of water, but beforo it could be procured,death had relieved Iter sufferings. A man doing business in Baltimore street, it is also said, died from the most palpable neglect, with this horrible disease, a few days since. The remains were found to be so offensive that it was impossible to induce any one by a reasonable compensation to transfer it to a hearse, and drive out to a burial ground. Under these circumstances, a private citi/.cn, Mr. Asbury Jarrett, put on an old suit, went into tho house, removed the corpse, drove out to the burial ground, and interred the body?prayed over the grave, and afterwards paid all the expenses. Such an act is deserving of the greatest praise. Tho Custom-House schemers are stillb*ti!cd, and lien Marriott remains at his post as Collector. The party who went to see the President yesterday on the subject, received no encouragement from Secretary Walker, and were not permitted to see the President on account of a slight indisposition. Although the country press is sending forth the most dismal cries relative to the efleet of the recent frosts on vegetation, I find the Baltimore market overflowing with the greatest abundance of early produce of all kinds.

Bromley,) to Lockport, and railroad thence to Buf falo, via the Falls. You will find Buffalo much im proved of late years, and will doubtless be astonish ed ut the number and capacity of her marine, espe cially her steamboats. Ihere is a very neat, pretty theatre in operation there, and at present Mrs. H. Hunt, from ihe Park, a clever woman by the way, is the attraction, aided by a respectable young tra gedian, Mr. G. Jamison. Up the Lake I had the good fortune to get on board the St. Louis steamer, Capt. &. W. Floyd. She is truly a splendid ship, and finished in a manner that 1 have never seen equalled. The hold is used for freight; there are two steerage cabins, one on deck, and a small cabin for ladies at the stern. On what is called on the Hud son, th? promenade deck, are her cabins, with stale rooms all around. The main cabin is 111 feet long, including a ladies' saloon, 20 feet wide, and 12 feet high. The door of each state room has a plate of glass, stained most beautifully, which at night admits all necessary light. Ihe state rooms are six by seven feet, two berths and two doors, one to the deck and one to the cabin. The machinery is all enclosed, with a wide passage way to ihe forward cabin, which is fifty feet by twenty, including an elegant saloon for gentlemen, with bar, Arc. Oil large pannels, six by three, be tween thi' doors of the state rooms in both cabins, are paintings, truly and without exaggeration, beau tiful and artist like, and which for accuracy of draw ing, boldness of touch, and truth of design, would put to whaine very many of our over praised paint ings of the Academy of Design The artist is named Cohen. The designs of the pictures, which by the way are all on canvass enamelled, are national? scenery from the Juniata. St Lawrence nnd ether streams?views of Buffalo, streams and harbors? and in the forward cakin there ?ire scenes of ships, weighing anchor, reefing a mainsail in a storm, Arc., and some views of men-of-war in storms. The borders are in fresco, and all the glass in the cabin* pre beautifully stained. I cannot leave this part of my letter without a word of praise,in simple justice, to the officers. 1 went on board a perfect stranger, and received as much kindness and attention as if] had been an owner. Captain Floyd is a salt, and in ap|>earance, manners and seamanship, resembles one of your Liverpool Packet captains. The stew ard, (here an important post, the captain not having much time to devote to the passengers,) is Mr. T T. Bloomer, and his table exhibits his own and the captain's good taste and liberality. We had plenty of lobsters, (remember this is 800 miles from the sea board,) strawberries, ?Vc., and as well served a meal, and as well cooked viands as the Astor, ex cepting the entrees of French cuitne. 1 wish some of the Hudson river stewards would see Mr. B.'s table and copy its neatness, cleanliness and liberali ty. The ship is 7(!0 tons, and leaves Bullalo every two weeks for Chicago and intermediate ports.
The dates are in the |>a|>ers. We had tor passengers, Mr. Whitney, the pro lector of the great railroad from lake Michigan to the Pacific. He is going to make a cursory survey of the route to the foot of the Kocky mountains, about 800 miles. He had seven of his company with him; twenty-five men join him at Milwaukie. I no ticed amongst them Mr. Le Hoy, Mr. Kasev and Mr. Thomas, of your city, all wealthy. I believe; Mr. Howell, of Canandaigua, and a gentleman front Boston. Whatever may be thought of the project, Mr. Whitney certainly shows much intelligence in conversation,and has the physical appearance of great determination and energy. He returns in October. The recent attempt at murder at Munroe. excites some sensation The kegs which Wells had con tained sand, and had been made for him in this city a few days previous. Hall still lingers, but there is little hope of his recovery. Hall had the keys of the vault, and Wells undoubtedly meant to nurder him and rob the bank, supposing, d<tublless, that it would be laid to Hall. Wells is, of course, in custody. 1 me..nt to Imve spoken of this place, banks. A'C., but the letter is now too long.

Pithing and Yatching?Captain Sltirgii ij the f'ulltr Ha milttn?TA* Odd b'rlluws' Ctlrbi'ati<m?Captain Jitd kins?Sailing of llie Urania. This is the beginning of the season for fishing, yacht ing, and boat-sailing. A select party of the representa tives of the New Vork Light Guards, in company with another party ot tno Boston Timers, and Flair's Brass Band, uot forgetting a galaxy of the fair, enjoyed a most delightful fishing excursion, a day or two siuce,on hoard of one ol the large and buuutiful yachts which belong to this port. They left here after breakfast, just as the sun began to stare his hottost, preparatory to mounting the meridian, and proceeded down the bay with a fine breeze lrom the NW, which lulled to slumbers the ex tended can* ass, and wafted to leeward the pealing mu sic of the band, as the beautiful yacht skimmed over or cut through the rolling swell. Alter enjoying a day of umningled pleasure, and having caught fish enough to feast a regiment of Aldermen, they returned in safety.? A splendid supper, with suitable accompaniments,closed the pleasures of the day. The revenue cutter Hamilton, rapt. Sturgis, sailed yes terday, on a short cruise. You are not, i think, aware that the gallant Captain was in your city a few days since, and remained thore nearly a whole week, without being announced in the papers. On his return, however, lie spoke very highly of your citizens and their public institutions?particularly so of the Sailors' Home, where ho dined. The Captain is OU of the best hearted fellows alive?always easily approached, and ever ready to re lieve the wants of those who solicit his aid; and often, without being solicited, in a quiet way,die makes the dreary homo of the unfortunate cheerful. As the 19th (not the 17th, as stated in your paper of Wednesday,! approaches, the Odd Fellows are begin ning to brush up their armor for the long-talked-of cele bration. It is estimated that they will make a display superior to any public procession (of a particular class) that has ever been witnessed in tnis vicinity. Carpen teri are already at work on the frame work of the tent in which they arc to dine on the Common; and Messrs Prince & Baker, sailmakers, commenced on Monday to make the covering. Many of our most rospectablo and wealthy citizens have recently joined the order. Among them are our courteous and obliging Postmaster, Nath'l Green, Esq.; Col. W. Winchester; Joshua Sears, Ksq.; John L. Dim mock, Esq.; E. Gerry Austin, Esq.,and many of our leading clergymen. I understand that Captain Hewitt, of the Britannia, S. S. Lewis, Esq. the agent of R. M. S. Co., and Mr. Robertson, of the same firm, on the return of the Britannia to this port, will also join the order. What at one time appeared to be a kind ot rowdy concern, is now regarded as highly respectable. And it is really so. Nono but men ol unblemished reputation, no matter how wealthy they may bo, are permitted to join the order. I am happy to inform you that Captain Judkins is re covering quite fast. He is an excellent don, and very much esteemed by all who know him. The frigate Urania sailed at daylight this morning for Europe, with a light breeze from N. W. The wind, however, veered about 8 A.M. to the eastward, and con tinues to blow lightly from that quarter, therefore she is now turning to windward in the bay. The U. S. steamer Mississippi will not be ready for sea before the middle of July, in conscquonce of some alter ations and improvements that are making in her machi nery. John Binvaw. Interesting Indian Council.?We have hereto fore noticed the council of the neighboring tribes called by the Creeks, and their meeting at tho Creek Council Ground. On Thursday evening last wo arrived there and found a tolerable large assemblage of Indians, composed principally of Creeks. The Council was call ed by the Creek ( hief, General Roily Mcintosh, who sent the " broken days" to all his neighboring brethren, including the Chippeways, Wyandots, and Comanchcs, inviting them to meet on the tirstof May. It was brought about by the Creeks unfortunately killing, some months ago, several of tlie Pawnoe Mehas, and was designed to wipe away this stain of blood, to heal, while yet fresh, the wound thus inflicted, to keep the " white path" clear, and to enter into new covenants of peace and friendship. But few of the tribes were able to get in at the appointed time. Before the council broke up the following repre sentations were present: Muscogees, or Creeks, 7.10; Seminoles, 52; Choctaws, 13; Chickasaws, 11 ; Shay neo?, 0 ; Delaware's, 1 ; I'ankcshaws, 1 ; Osages, 12 ; Kicknpoos. 4 ; Quapaws, (i; Peolies, 3 ; Caddoes, 8. The messenger, Kcho Hajo, and five others sent with the " broken days'' to the Comanche? (known by nearly all the tribes as Pah-do Kah's) returned the following; an swer, " We send back your emblems, they have l'alse tongues."' lie also reported that they encamped with : the Comanches (of whom there arc seven branches) all night?and were permitted on the following morniug to depart. After proceeding somr ton miles on their way, thoy halted for tlie purpose of killing some buffalo. While thus engaged their horses escaped and returned to the Comanche camp, where they were followed by three of the young men, whom the Comanches immediately seized with the riow of putting them to death. Becom ing anxious on account of the long absence of the3e young men, Kcho Hajo, who is a Creek, and the only one of the compauy that spoke their language, was in duced to go in pursuit of them. When he arrived at the camp, lie found them in a ring, ready to be pot to death, and an old woman begging for their lives. He was also coolly invited to walk in and share their late, but pre vailed on the in finally to release the whole party, on condition of their giving up their clothing, saddles, bri dles, blankets, tobacco and other offsets, reserving their guns and horses. The other Creeks stated that Kcho Hajo played a falso part, and told the Comanches that tlie objects ol the Creeks in calling the Council, was to form a league for tho purpose of destroj ing the Osages and all other prairie tribes, and that on searchinj his saddle bags they found plenty of tobacco, aiter he had informed them that he had no niora?hence the allusion to the false tongue. This representation is credited by the Creeks. Tne Comanches further told the Creek messengers that they had a previous engagement to meet the Osages and all tlie other border tribes, this "moon," at the Great Salt Plain?, to devise some measures of re dress, and that they wanted to know how the white horned Butfulo (cattle) would eat, since 'he wild Buftu loes, by smelling the white horned ones, and the hogs and people, (Creeks and other settled tribes) were driven so far oil that they got very hun gry before they could overtake them. The meeting here spoken of, was corroborated by the Osages, who last summer received the " broken days," painted red, to meot the Comanches at the Salt Plains, when the grnss got about one foot high. Upon this point the Osage ( hief spoke with animation and effect, and stated that tho Osages did not know the object of the meeting, but would learn it when thev arrived at the Salt P'ulaj and further, that he knew, wnat his brothers, Ike Muaco^e*', did not know, but of which thoy woJld siHiii I ia.ormed, kc. The following Indians have lieen inrlted to < ?ot at 'lie Salt Plains :?Comanches, ( iwidoes, Kioways, U ichetaws, Wacoes, Keechies, Tewockenees, Osages, I hiennes and Kutaws. The object of this coun cil i? not known, but is, prohnbly, designed to prevent the inroad* of the more civilized nations into the buffalo range. We have no idea, however, that any tiling wi'l grow out of it that will effect their peace. During the Council, the pipe of peace was smoked, the white paths cleared, the < ouncii fire lighted afresh, and several speeches ofinteiestdelivered by the heads of the differ ent representations present, which shall next week ap pear in tho Jldvoealt. The nights were enlivened by the " Terrapin Shell dances" of the Muscogees, and the songs, drums, reeds and saltations of the Osages. The object for which the ( ouncii was culled, having failed in a great degree effecting a leconciliation with the Paw nee Mahas--the ( reeks have pgain sent emblems of peace? tobacco, encircled with white beads?to the Pawnees and Comancnos, to the formei by the Coona-la cliecs, or Caddoes, and to the latter by the Osages, with a request for answers, whether " good or bad."? So soon as they shall be recaived, it is the inteu tion of the Creek chiefs to call another grand (.'ouncii at the GlHt Salt Plains, and to request the kind offices of the government of the United States. On Friday last, the Kith, the ( ouncii broke up by a gen cal leave-taking of those present, which was performed after their respective customs. That of the Creeks, Choctaws, kc , neing by shaking hands?of the Osages, Quapaws, and others, by taking hold of the right arm about the elbow, with the right hand, and giving it a hearty gripe and shake?and at the Caddoes by embra cing, a real lovers' embraco?warm, affectionate, and de lightfully intimate. Amongst other persons present, were Gov. Butler. Cherokee agent, (to whose politeness we are indebted for much embraced in the loregoing) colonel Logan, Cteek agent, Lieut. Klint, U. S. Army ; Gen. Mcintosh, Jim Boy, Benjamin Marshall, and other leading men aiming the Creeks ; Micc.inopy and Wild Cat of the Seminole* ; Shin-gah-wa^-sah and Black Dog of the Osages ; the Chief of the Quapaws, the Chief of the Caddoes, and other persons distinguished among their respective tribes, whose names we do not remember.

The EtTTAwn.?We understand that the Eutaws, a brave mid dangerous tribe of Indians, residing in the Northern part of the Spanish country, beyond the Rocky Mountains,have been committing depredations on the Spanish settlements of that region, and have cut off a number of straggling parties of Mexican Spaniards. The Kutaws are bold and active, are very well mounted, and first rate horsemen, live in moveable skin lodges, iiiiil are very dangerous to the Spanish settlements in Hint region. They arc good hunters, and procure guns, powder and other ammunition from the mountain traders in exchange for beaver skins and buffalo robes. They are too bold and cunning for the Mexicans, and have ta ken more Spanish scalps during the past year than any former one.?Si. 1aiiiit Era.

Excitement at the Weal. tFrom the St. Louis ltevielle, June 3.] \ osterday morning we foun'l ourselves, witli others, near the enclosure opposite tlie Planters' Ware house, onde'ivoring to hear what Captain Fremont's ideas were in relation to his contemplated mountain ex pedition. Ho was, at the time, attempting to address a motley crowd of French, Irish, Dutch and Mountain men, to the number of several hundred, who had sur rounded and wore importuning him to obtain the much desired " diumond gudgeon" of this government affair.? The Captain was disposed to gratify them, and accord, ingly mounted the most convenient"rostrum, which was near the old rickety fence which bounds the enclosure. He had commenced and was going on with his remarks, which could not be heard, however, except by those who were immediately crowding round him, when a sudden.pressure of the crowd broke down the fence, and over went the crowd, Captain and all, embracing their mother earth. About this time, a well meaning Irishman, who had been standing on the corner of Second street, not knowing what all the fuw was about, rushed up with the idea that it was a " big fight," shouting at the top of his lungs, " fair play ! fair play ! anil be cH d to ye/.?don't you tee the man's down r" The ?' American Kur Compay" Anally came to the rescue of the Captain, who, to say the truth, must hare been worried almost to death by the violent respect of the populace, and re assured and re-mounted upon his pedal extremities, in tho body of an ox cart, he again began his harangue, of which wo could distinguish but such broken sentences as these?" Those who desire to go?fifty men?good ritlomen ami packers?been to the Mountains before ? are not such?discharge them before I get up." We heard something about his making something known through the public press. VVe shall issue ail extra as soon as we shall have been apprized of the nature of it, and we give the information to prevent a crowd about ourottice. [From the St. Louis Era, June 3.J This is the strongest manifestation of the Oregon ferer that wo have yet witnessed. The expedition is expected to start from this place during the present week, and to leave Westport about the 15th of the present month. The following is a letter addressed by one of the edi tors of that paper, to the Ifrsltrn Erpotitar ;? Emigrant's C?mp, Kaw Village, ) May 15th, 1845. > A ride of one hundred miles from Independence has brought us into tiie midst of a scene the most grateful and animating my eyes ever hailed. In the centre of a beautiful prairie,'which the wild taste of the Kaw Indians have selected for their permanent village, is the icndez vous of the Oregon Emigrants, assembled here to com plete their final organization One hundred and four wagons arranged in an oval ring, and linked together with ox chains, form at once an immense caiul to enclose the stock, and an impregnable fortress to protect them. One hundred more wagons encamped in groups at small distances complete tho troops here assembled, which dotting tho plain with their snow white covers resound ing with a busy multitude plying to and fro in business of preparation, or herding the cloud of stock engaged in devouring the luxuriant grass, combine to heighten in interest a scene full of animation, sunshine, and excite ment. The emigrants have been engaged during the day in framing and adopting a system of regulation for their general government, and iu tho election of officers. Dr. Walsh, of Cooper county. Mo., has been chosen Captain, Stephen H. L. Meek, Pilot, an admirable oode of regula tions adopted, subordinate officers elected, and the whole body arranged into four companies, intended to travel sepa'rately or in mass, as the exigencies of the route may suggest to be expedient. From the census which I have succeeded in taking, there were present: Males 4*21 Females 138 Children?Boyi 240 Girls 209 Total of children 440 Cattle 32(51 Wagons 233 Horse 182 The whole form as nervous, intelligent, brave and de termined a body as ever launched themsclvos upon the hazard of an untried and arduous enterprise, surrounded by known difficulties and freckled with unknown dan gers. Amply equippod with provisions, arms, excellent vehicles, abundance of animals, experienced guides and true rilles, the sight of this train of moving houses as breaking from camp and stretching onward one by one, they form a moving lino of two miles in length, flanked by herds and horsemen, inspired in our breasts the most stirring emotions. This morning the war-like news from England reached the camp, at the announcement of which all declared that they went equally determined to settle and to con quer. Should they be called to rally around the Star Spangled Banner, and plant the national standard forever (irmly on tho sublime heights that overlook the Pacific, wo shall knew that truer hearts or better soldiers never primed a rifle or drew a deadlier brad. We cannot too highly appreciate those who thus de part with ?uch intentions, or too highly value the servi ces they go to render to their country without remune ration. They go to plant a new people in a new and ac tive country?to create new states?to give us a now commercial empire?to open a new field to tho growing energies and wants of our expanding Republic?to carry civilization around the world?to dissolve the spell that has estranged thej Asiatic from the European portion of mankind?to propagate the knowledge of human rights to tho timid, lively and intelligent people of Asia and Polynesia?to toacn them sciences, navigation and com merce, Sec.?to spread education and happiness? in short to commence that Inst revolution over the world which willj embrace iindjelevate all mankind, by bringing all nations familiarly in contact, and making them rivals in the race of improvement. They go to confront and dis lodge British invasion and stop British conquest, w hich vanquished In front upon the Atlantic, has gone round our llanks anil round the world to crush and destroy us from liehind?to counteract British spleen which has heated our enemies, soured our friends, concerted for us domestic strife and servilo war, and intrigued to sow the seed of enmity against us in every foreign breast. Intermingled with the rest we see several onuir?',>nt8 whose final destination is California, but who will pass by Oregon in their way, thus binding moro closely the mutual connection of those two countries. Five companies of Dragoon* (260 strong) will depart from Fort Leavenworth on the IKh. under orders to pro ceed by '.lie Oregon trail to the head of Sweet-water, (the eastern limit of Oregon) and returning thence by Lara mv, to pass along the eastern base of the Hocky Moun tains to Bents' Fort on the Arkansar. reaching home in about five months by the Santa Fe trail. Of the exploring company of Captain Fremont we hear nothing, except that such a one will start about the first of June next, having for its object the exploration of the country between the head of the Arkansas and the Pa cific coast along the 42d degree of north latitude. The results of such an expedition will be of the highest value should they eventuate in the discovery of a direct route by that course on to the heads of the Sacremento and Wallamette rivers. Simultaneously with the departure of this body of emi grants, of whom we are now taking leave, other bodies have already commjfnced their journey from St. Joseph's, Savannah, and Ceuncil Bluffs. These, of whose numbers we have no positive information by report,equal the emi gration by the route of Independence. It is aw'onderlul impulse this, combined of patriotism, curiosity, and a warlike spirit of adventure, which is pressing ou ? people onward to the Western Seas. They depart burning v. itli high hopes of benefits to accrue both to themsclve? and the general country. In both they will be gratified. There is every thing'in the set tling of Oregon which is calculated to fan into activity j the spirit of emigration. Wild adventure for tho young ' ?solid gain for the more sdber?health and a fair climate for females, to lighten their domestic duties and give vigor to their offspring. Success to those who have gono ! Success, too, to | thoso who may follow during succeeding years We may expect a continual annual increase in their numbers I as the importance of Oregon and California becomes more fully known, the intervening difficulties removed, ' and the connexion with us moro fully confirmed. Let 1 us cheer the brave pioneers to whom we bid adieu, and i animate ourselves, that each succeeding year may eclipse its predecessor. [From the St. Louis Reporter, June 4.] From tho number of applications made to Captain Fremont on Monday to join his company, it may be judg ed how readily a Government expedition to take posses. I sion of Oregon would meet with volunteers. The West , can occupy and defend that territory whenever the <Jo- j vernment can get ready to authorise anil encourage the movement. Hundreds have been soliciting Captain F. for situations in his company, although he can employ but few persons, and if he wanted thousands a lew days notice would suffice to bring them to his standard. The novelty of (he trip to Oregon arouses the adventurous spirit of the West, and new /est is given to the enterprise by a probability of a brush with the British. The ad ministration will find men enough in thewest to carry on any operations which may be necessary in Oregon. Let it be bold, and all difficulties will vanish. [From the St. Louis Era, June 4.] ^IThc party that came in with Captain Finch state that the whole trace from fifteen miles beyond the Big Blue to the State line, was lined with emigrants to Oregon.? | In that distance they met at least ;>00 wagons and tho usual proportion of emigrants and cattle This is tho way to fortify our right to Oregon.

A note in the Chronicle from Mr. Cilt says I examined the strawberry stands at Lower Mar ket street last Saturday, and found one hundred and six teen cases, averaging thirtv-five boxes of one quart each to the case, being a total of four thousand and sixty quarts. The quantity ofl'cred at Canal Market, and at various stands through the city, would easily increase the aggregate to five thousand quarts. Thete are sold at present from i tort cents per quart, according to quality, the price of the article averaging 8 cents throughout tfie entire period of sale. A four horse wagon drove up on Friday last to Fifth stieet Market with two tons straw berries Most of this delicious fruit is cultivated in ad jacent Kentuck) , where patches of live to ten acres are frequent. Two of the strawberry gardens are eighteen and twenty acres, and one of them reaches to thirty acres in extent, theie being at least one hundred and forty acres devoted to the culture of this article. There are about twenty-live days of full sale of strawberries in that maikct. At four thousand quarts per day this gives one hundred thousand quarts of strawberris sold in one sea son. They overage 8 cents per quart, which makes eight thousand dollars paid ia a little more than three weeks for strawberries.
