And yet, although in a state of complacence und composure, it is perfectly understood that this place is not without its proportion of trials, many of which I could recapitulate as having occurred since my last letter. As a specimen, I may mention my trial to climb to that peering hill called the Crow's-Nest, which immediately overlooks West Point, and ex perienced a failure.

Again I have tried to trace the outlines of the old fortifications around and about here, including Fort Putnam, and could not, which may he fairly set down in the list of trials.

For tlie Hoard of dflcSs who sit constantly from 9 A. M. to 3 P. M it is an loneroiis duty ; and still more so for the Professors Kho put the questions to ,h.. Cadets, and are ,!hl"' ,| o attend, with rigid attention to the answers and ? lutions as1 they are given. A marked suw rioritvTs evinced this yenr in the proficiency of hII the classeh lover those of last year, when Iwtween thirty and jf-rty were pronounced deficient, wh.le 5,i, ye.'i theie are not more than tluee or (our I It they do not master their studies arwJ ert fheir tasks!

He has not means of re I creation other than lus studies and his dutv ! lie lsl allowed no money, and only a limited credit?for black, pepper, |>ocket handkerchiefs, and pipe clay. He rises with the sun, or sooner, if the drum beats, and sequestrates himself in his domicile at a like eignal in the afternoon, and must not, on any ac count, go up to the hotel, on therrfrTs" pressing busi ness without a written order from his captattt. Now it requires no great sagacity to see that few of any country, or class, would he reconciled at once to this change. How greatly mortifying it mu-t be to fotuig Americans, naturally impa tient of control; but when we ajao consider that perhaps that young aspiring and hopeful persoa, is the pon a man of wealth, was indulged in n.os!of his fancies by affectionate parents and circle of at tached friends. it would be truly singular if the case were otherwise than it is, that more than two thirds of the cadets who enter resign before they graduate. Last year only forty put of one hundred and fifty did s 1. A few days ago, the son of a Wes tern gentleman, arrived with others at West Point to commence his term as a cadet, but witltottt trying how he would like making his own bed, sweeping out his room, and delivering up the contents of his pockets, he put his hands into them, assured tlve offi cer it was not with any such amiable intentions he came so far. and then leisurely commenced arrange ments for liis immediate return home, where ne likely has arrived by this time. Since you received my last, the examinations have been in the Academy Library, and the change is an j improvement, being more airy, elegant and conve-1 uient. 1 do no know the number of volumes in the li-fi hr,try,but it is much larger than I expected to see there | The fourth class, consisting of 57 members were up* to-day, and were questioned on mathematics. The? tnswering was, as usual, good; but by no means in-1 teresting to the public or those who heard it, further! than as giving evidence of industry and capacity onjj the part of the students. f It richly renays for the trouble to go through thee laboratory, where combustibles of all sorts are pre-jj imred, and through the stores and armory, yPherel models of the latest improvements in the imple-2 ments of aggressive warfare, us well as of those?> they have superseded, arc to be seen. They are^ constructed at West Point, and that in a most beau-jj tiful manner. In cannons and their appendages?S in mortars, and cavalnr swords, the superiority olV those now approved of'is obvious; and yet these1} have been introduced since those notable wars of y the French revolution, and the Peninsula, that devel-Jj oped the greatest military skill, genius, and science,^ since the days of Alexander., In the Arsenal'^ yard lie several curiosities in uie sfiafie of brass* field pieces, some of them were taken from): the British who previously had wrested them from? the French. Among the rest there is onej which was a present from La Fayette to the Anier-' ican Congress, and a very small brass mortar used J by Gen. (raines. All these are much ornamented-i and covered with letters in relief , and are well wor-J thy of a regard or two from every lover of the stirring j davs of other years. Were it not that 1 have already written too much,' I Could add some incidents. In the present case, 1 will merely mention one which took place last night.'f At about ten o'clock, it was announced to a group; oi military men and others, by one who had iusti joined the chatting party, tnat the hotel keeper hadt mesmerized one of his several girls. It was received., as a good piece of waggery and heartily laughed at* by the majority. A minority of two or three fi seized th? opportunity to sneer at the "science" asj the quacks say, but this was resisted by nume-i rous learned and erudite arguments by the faithful; the latter, let us observe, were composed' mostly of dashing young lieutenants, who stoutly' averred nothing was less difficult than to mesmerize^! a chamber maid, which the old Generals would not -, at all endorse. At last, the operator was appealed* to, who assured the party seriously, that the report* was true. He had descended among his domestics,1< in these stirring times, and found one of his maids.* suffering acutely from n virulent swelling in the; thumb, and being an amateur in the disputed science, he resolved to try its sanative influence. The re-.' suit was that the girl was put in the magnetic state, j the pain alleviated, and the inflammation removed* so much that she awoke rejoicing, told them she'j was quite at ease, and disposed to fall into her natu-,'; ral slumber, a thing she had not enjoyed for two" nights before. This is all I will say now. Adieu. |i Boston. [Correspondence of the Herald.] Boston, June 10, 1846. Improvements in t>i? City?FanKion and Folly. Tho improvements which are going on here, at pre-! ?ent, are such as never before were witnessed in this city | ? Every year teems to demand greater improvements and" a larger number of buildings, which are unequivocal) signs of tho growing prosperity of Boston. The price of land in Bostou Proper, is annually increasing in value, and is now wholly beyond the reach of our meohanicnl j and laboring population. Thfere is scarcely a streot in "i our citv in u'liifh the hand nf imtirar^mnnl am) mnilitrni. ' our city in which the hand of improvement and modern! z.ation is not at work. On Washington street, (one ofthc i shabbiest looking streets in the city, but because it is in habited by jewellers, tailors, hatters and milliners, is the-j promenade of the hea-i mondt ;) an immense number ofp new brick buildings are being put up in place of thejj modern" ten-footers." There is not a city in the Union! that requires more to bo modernized than "Boston ; for oil 'ill placos, its streets are the narrowest, the rrookodest.f ?and most irregular, and to a stranger, the North Knd is ;i J Sperfect labyrinth. The city government expends every* ,-fyear considerable sums in widening and straightening^ the thoroughfares, as tho narrowness of many of them? occasions some hours delay to scores of vehicles. Thef, South Knd of the city, the part occupied by our aristoc-*, racy, is quite modern looking, the streets being spacious' and open, aud all laid out mostly at right-angles. On thc^ Neck, a great many light wooden framed buildings arc* erected, and in the course of construction, eighty oi? which, have been put up by an Englishman who six years * since arrived here as an emigrant without a cent in his'j pocket. On Pearl street, several excellent dwellings haveV been demolished, to give place to new stores with granite ' fronts. This street, at one time the most elegant and spacious looking street in Boston, will soon be entirely in the hands of the "mercantile fraternity," as the Athenaeum is to be taken down this season and a large warehouse erected on its site. We are to have a new Atheasrum and Mechanics' Hall, both of which, in architectural design and structure, will.,, no doubt be ornaments to our city. The horticulturists i have'already got a hall erected, in which they have ex hibitions ol truits and flowers weekly. It is a plain, beautiful and chaste building, and it an evidence of the ?ood taste of our citizens. The ladies dress splendidly here this summer, even, mora elegantly than in previout seasons ; few, however,* arc to be seen on these warm days until tht coolings shades of evening appear ; then whole bevies of beauties! may be seen promenading Tremont and Washington} tracts, and the nicely gravelled walks of the Common, I Most, or at least a great many of the upper class, have! left for the watering places or their country seats. I ob-l serve that some of those who are still domiciled in the! city, often in the afternoons, with their daughters, take al a ride out among the neighboring towns. Horse-riding1 is a graceful accomplishment and a pleasing exercise to ladies, and if it wore more general amongst them, ill] health and ennui would be less felt. Vll is quiet here at present?no politics, no religious controversy, no humbug?and the only thing that at all keeps us on the qui vire is the expected celebration ot the Oud Fellows. Our citizens are most pertinaciousl} 1111111011.1 in disposition, and seem to be no nearer the ob ject of their eflbrts than in the palmy days of John Haw kins. ICa><>r,in some shape or othor, seems to be a stand ing public question with our people. John flriVAH. 1 )is \s i uors Conh.aokatio.n.?This morning about 14 otclock tht- extensive planing works, on Fox Point street, owned and run by Mr. Nathan Mason, were discovered to be on Arc by the watchman, who states that the fire took near the boilers, occasioned, as be sup poses, by the friction of the gudgeons of the second main ilium, which is driven by a belt from the main drum, at tached to a large fly-wheel. As toon as he saw the dan ger, there being no water in the building, he opened the valve of the boiler and sought to extinguish the fire hy steam. Finding this was unsuccessful, he rang a bell at tached to the establishment, and ran for an engine. In the mean time tho lire communicated to some shavings, of which thero was a largo quantity in the body of the building, and almost instantly tho large edifice was in n blaze. Ho rapid was the course of the flames that noth ing could he saved. Thore were in the building sevoral planing machines and carpenters' tools, and a large lot of planed boards. A large quantity of boards near tho building was also dostroyed. The lire communicated to the rear of the steam boiler manufactory of Thurston, Oreene fc Co., which was with its contents destroyed. A barn south of the planing works, occupied by S 8. Salshury, was destroyed. \ dwelling house idso occunicd by Mr. Salsbury, was|much scorched and in jured. The loss of Mr. Mason is estimated at $20,000. Ho was insured at the Hartford Insurance Company for only fft.OOO. 'I hurston, Ureene St Co.'s loss is very heavy, being, at a rough estimate, $40,000. It is probable, however, that the amount will exceed that sum. The loss is mostly in their tools, machinery, and finished woik. \bout $IA00 worth of the latter was to have been delivered to-day. Much work in progress of completion was also destroyed. T., O. k ( a. were insured for $13,000, at the follow ing olHces : $4,000 at the Croton Insurance Co., New \oik; $4,000 at the Contributionship lasurance Co., New Vork ; and $4,000 at the Hertford Insurance Co., Hartford. Mr. Pike was probably insured sufficiently to cover the injury done to his property. About I AO men were employed in the two establish ments, ner.rly all of whom are thus thrown out of em Iplo",and upon whom it will fall hard. I'roridenrr Trnn lcrtpl,oJ Saturday. Common Council.

He expired on Sunday, June 8tli, at t o'clock, at his residence at the Hermitage. I have thought it proper vo communicate officially to you this ovont, in order that you may take measures, to ena ble the people of this City, in sympathy witli the whole people of the Union, to manifest their sorrow for this na tional loss. This is an extraordinary occasion. The greatest ami best man in our country has (alien; and it ii becoming that the event should lie signalized by a mour ning and grateful people. \ soldier of heroic genius, his achievements covered hit country with imperishable re nown. A statesman of intuitive wisdom and profound sa gacity, his pcrfect sympathy with the popular masses made him their truest representative, anit chosen leader in the great political movements of the times; more than any other man, he has given the impress of his own chu racter to our age and the institutions of our country. With great respect, gentlemen, W. I?. Havebmcykb. i Ai.df.iima.v Briugi hero rose and said?I rise, gentle-} men, with feelings of ineffable pain, to offer the preamble I and resolutions on the subject ot the lamented demise ot i the illustrious statesman, whose death has just been an- j nounced to you. A great event ha* suddenly come upon ut. Tho Almighty, in his wisdom, has taken away a j man, who, whether in the tented iield, fighting for the liberty of his country, or In the councils perpetuating] that liberty, his name stands illustrious and prominent { upon the pages of hit country's history. 1 move that the \ following preamble and resolutions he adopted by this f Board, and a joint committee be appointed to carry them ] out4 Thit Commoil Council?having just received the affect-1 ing intelligence of the death or Andrew Jackson, late ^ President of the United States,who has filled a space in tho history of his country second only to the immortal Wash' ington; who, in early life served in the war of our Kevolu tion, in middle age defended the rights secured by that revolution, and rendered a service w hich the wreath In to servo that people?deeply sympathize with his aftlictcd j friends, and the whole American People. Resolved, Therefore, Tha? a Joint Committee of each \ Board bo appointed to confer with our fellow-citizens as ' to the best mode to be adopted to testify our rosuect for the distinguished worth and position held by the dceased. I Resolved, That the Mayor be requested to unite with the Committee for the above purpose. Resolved, That tho Committee report such arrange ments as they may determine upon to a special meeting of the Common Council, to be called for tno purpose. Ald.Beitiojv?I rise, sir, to second the resolution. I consider that resolution justly due to the great and dis-, tinguished hero, who has so signalized the age in which 1 helivod. Although we may differ on some matters ol ! opinion, if ever there was a man whose virtues and , prowess made hiin groat and good, and glorious in the land, I can say it of the deceased General Jackson. 1 look back upon his history from time to time, and I take the responsiDility of saving that I am fullv borne out in ! these opinions. These high qualities iully entitle his remains?his memory?to every mark of respect, and it is with mingled feelings of pleasure and pain that I rise to second the resolution. The audience outride the bar seemed to feel deeply gratified with this high tribute from Alderman Benson, j to the memory of the venerated hero of New Orleans. The following Committee were then appointed Messrs. Briggs, Benson, Messerolo, Hart, and Tappan.

Nileg mjd John Rice,?This wti an actiou of trespass, brought by u member of tlie bar against a " learned lriend" and hi* 'client, to recover damages for causing a levy to be made (upon the property of the plaintiff. Tt appeared that in I the fall of 1H41, a party named Daniel Blakelr. < aptain iuf a canal boat, and, therefore, a common carrior, came [to thin city with a cargo of flour, which was claimed by {the defendant, llice, who also contended that he waa I entitled to damages for injuries done to said flour, in consequence of careless and fraudulent conduct on the part of the captain. It appeared the defendant, Niles. (as attorney lor Kice, then caused a writ to be issued |from the Court of Common Pleas for the arrest of Bluke jly, obtained an order to hold to bail, and with said writ fund order, the defendants had iilakuly arrested, Hice, it Inppeared, being specially deputed to act in the premises, i.iud he was thereupon lodged in Kldridge street prison. The case was tried in lS4i, when plaintiff" obtainod a ver ?M' t lor $h damages, which entitled defendant to judgment tor costs. Judgment was subsequently entered up againit defendant, lUco, for a sum of $347 62, being the balance of cost* after deducting the $j,00 verdict. On Blakely's dis charge, it appeared lie brought suit ngainst Hice in the Circuit Court to recover damages for false imprisonment, and recovered a verdict of upon which judg ment was entered, which, including costs, amounted to the mm of $370. After these two judgments had been entered, Rice, by his Attorney, Mr. Niles, moved for a new trial of the cause tried in the Pleai, which was denied with $7 costs of opposing. Subsequently, Blakely, it uppeared. went to the offico of the defendant, Niles, and executed a release in favor of Bice, for thai judgments in question, as well as all chums arising out ol the suits as was alleged, receiving for said release of about $700, the consideration of $100, and a gold watch. Vlr. Piatt then issued a precept for the $7 costs of op posing the motiou for a new trial, which waa swarded him in the Common TJeas, and the precept was made re* turnahle in .January, I-44. In April. 1*44 the said piecept was placed in the bunds of the 8herifl"; but, the return day having passed, it 501 out of date, and became, therefere, invalid in law. luce, it appealed, was however arrestee by the sheriff', and w as immediately discharged on dis covering he had no authority to ariest. Rice here upon brought suit in the .Marine Court against Pla.t, the attorney, to recover damages for the false imprisonment in making the lust arrest. The suit was abandoned on the part of defendant 011 the supposed ground of want ef jurisdiction. Niles, however, carried on the suit and re covered a verdict lor $11*0 damages and costs, nice it appeared, took the oath of danger, swoie out an execu tion on the judgment, and put it into the hands of a mar shal. The officer hereupon proceeded to Piatt's office and levied upon law books belonging to the plaintiff', and udvertised them for sale. The case was brought up in the Superior Court by certiorari, when judgment was lecoy ?re<l. The cause was set down lor argument when the plaintiff" in error was not present, and dclendant took * judgment by default, and Nilos proceeded with his order for the judgment in the Marine Court and received (100; which the defendant in error was obliged to pay into court before lie could take the cu tiorari. The cause was subsequently restored to the calendar on motion, and the judgment in the Marine Court was set aside on the ground that said court had no jurisdiction. It waa sworn on the trial liy several witnesses, that the ulaintiflT is a man of considerable property and abundantly able to meet all his responsibilities, and said plaintiff" now seeks to recover 011 the ground that the Marine Court having nojurisdiction in the case, all the parties engaged in the prosecution arc to be held as trespassers. It wee also coutended that the plaintiff, Mr. Piatt, being in good circumstances, the alleged unnecessary haste in taking tho oath of danger, and the subsequent proceedings, ag gravate the case and indicate malicious motives on the part of the defendants.

In your remarks of last Tuesday's Herald, about the abrupt closing of the New Bowery Theatre, on the pre ceding Saturday evening, some blame appears attached to me, which I really do not morit. When you ara fully aware of this, I feel confident that you will be equitable enough to acknowledge it. 1 am reluctant to come be fore the public to offer even an explanation, but as the facta have been misrepresented to my prejudico, I have no alternative. After the Bowery Theatre was burned, Mr. Tryon of fered me an engagement for a month, which I accepted, having that time to spare previously to the commence ment of a contract with another Theatre. In accordance with hi* written agreement, I was to receive a certain suna weekly, and a benelit ou the laat night ol my ap pearance. Before that period arrived. Mr. Tryon, it seems, waa obliged to be absent from the theatre, in order to com lete his ( irctis arrangementt. He stated that he should leave Mr. Dinnet'ord as his representative, but that the Treasurer should also see that I was dealt fairly with,and up to the termination of my engagement, I faithfully performed my part of the contract. The morning alter my benefit. Mr. Dinueford handed me in a statement of the previous evening's receipts, which I took for granted was correct-but instead of paying me over the amount, as is usual on such occa sions, I was astonished to hear his request that I would jwait lor it until nine o'clock the next morning This was an act of gross injustice, because my portion of the money that had been recei* ed, belonged strictly to ine. It was my property, lie had no right to appropriate it to the purposes of the Theatre. In doing so he committed a breach of tiust. | The next and the following day passed, when I was 'told with the coldest indifference possible, that the j'fheatie could not then pay me. On the Saturday evening in question. I commissioned afriend to ,i'loim Mr. Dinneford that I would willmgh 'forogo my three days salary and arrears, if he wou/d pay me the amount accruing from my benefit alone, but I received no satisfactory answer. The same evening, acting under the advice "of some friends, who were of opinion that 1 should otherwiac never get paid at all, 1 refused to appear unless I received some immediate sa ItisfactiOn. In doing this I was only following the exam ple of others, who had adopted the same mode, but who were more fortunate than myself, because they w ere immediately paid. | Mr. Dinneford had timeh intimation of my determina tion, but he tieated it with the most repugnant abrupt ness. \ courteous communication might have obviated the difficultv. This I was at least entitledto 1 acted not only in accordance with the adviceol m\ private friends but those belonging to the company, both male and female I was dressed and ready to appear, but Mr. Dinne.ord had got the money, and therefore appears to have cared little about tho audience. If even I had not withheld my services, one, I know, Bml llielieve otl-crs. had resolved to do so, unless their arrears were paid, so that the night's performance could not, under an) circumstances, have proceeded. I keenly feel the <lisap|K?intment which those present, no doubt experienced but the community must be fully aware that Individuals in our profession cannot afford their time and services Hot nothing. It is true the au 'rifence had paid for the enjoyment of a recreation, but it the misdeeds of the manager deprived them ol it, he ought at least to have been lionest enough to return their mone> . At all events the odium should exclusively fall upon him. Yours, respectfully. CsaoLinic 8. Piim i.irs.
