For several months past there has been much s-a.d About the contemplated changes to be made in tin ?ystem of keeping and disbursing the funds of the government, and the ultra organs of both parties have appropriated a large portion of their column? to the discussion of the question. The existing system has been uttended with many dangers, and the fpublic moneys has not been placed in depositories where it has at alt times been Bale. The Secretary of the Treasury is required by the act regulating the sale keeping of government deposits, to obtain security lor the amount deposited with any bank, whenever he shall deem it necessa ry, and any bank or depository refusing to give sucli security, can no longer have the use ?I the govern ment funds. L ntil within the past month or two, very few of the depositories have been required to give security, but since that time the Secretary oi the Treasury bus been regulating the places ol depo sit, and eventually every one will be compelled to give security lor every dollar of the public money received on deposit. The Secretary has been secu ring the funds deposited in banks in the interior, and so fir United States stocks have been principally of f-red as security. In requiring security from all the depositories, the good, bad, and inditferent, are placed upon a par, and no partiality can be exercised in selecting the agents for disbursing the public funds. The expenditure of government money in some sections of the country requires the deposit ol funds in the vicinity ot the place of payment, and institutions have been selected as temporary deposi tories, the credit of which has not been very hit.h, aud the deposits have therefore been unsafe so Ung as they remained in hand. An instance of this kind recently occurred in Michigan, but the funds were withdrawn before it was too late. Large amounts ot the public money have for seme time past, been deposited with private banking houses, located at or near the seat of gov vernment, and this fact has created a great deal ol v irtuous indignation among the opponents of the Sub-Treasury system, and in some cases among the organs of the administration. Under the deposit system of the present day, this has been the best secured portion of the deposits. Every dollar of the amount deposited with individual houses, has been amply secured from the moment received, and has therefore been much safer than any of that de posited in the different Sta?e batiks Notwithstand ing the amount was thus secured, the mouth piece of the administration in this district endeavored to get up a tremendous excitement among those seek ing for every drop of pap that drops from the go vernment, and denounced the Secretary of thi? Treasury for violating the act in relation to the safekeeping of th ? public moneys, and insinuated th it a </uidpro <juo had been received from the pri vate bankers alluded to, by the former Secretary, for the use of a large amount of deposits, and that the present Secretary might be governed by the same influence. An organ of the government advocating the re-establishment of the Sub-Tre tsury, actually abused the Secretary of the Treasury for adoptiuir the principles of that act, so far as the existing laws in relation to the disposal ot the public revenue would allow him. This is only another instance where these organs sacrifice all political principle for the sake ot individual aggrandizement, or the extension of the power of political cliques. The Secretary ot the Treasury cannot deviate from the course marked out for him by the aet of Congress regulating the safekeeping of the surplus revenue of the general government, ilis individual principles have nothing to do with the matter as it now stands. T here is very little doubt, however, but that the Sub-Treasury system, so faras the finan cial operations of the government are concerned, will be strongly recommended to Congress by the administration. On the twenty-first day of last December, the bill for thv re-establishment of the Independent Trea sury, passed the House of Representatives by a vote of one hundred and twenty-three veas to sixty-eight nays. 1 his was a strict party vote, every democrat in the House voting for and every whig voting against it. The progress of the bill was then arres ted, and nothing more was done about it during the session ; but we have every reason to believe that it will be one of the features of the approaching ses sion. We have no doubt but that the bill, as it passed the House last session, will be taken up again, and, if possible, forced through ; and earned into practical operation ; but there are obstacles in the way likely to prevent the accomplishment of such an act. The original Sub-Treasury bill will not, in our opinion, ever go into operation again, but an act oompelhng the government to receive Mnd expend nothing but gold and silver, will without doubt be adopted The financial o|*rutions of the govern ment must be conducted entirely upon the specie system, not only on account of the safety it gives to the moneyed movements of theTreasnry, but on ac count of the influence such a system would have npon the currency and circulating medium of the m vidual States. The government ha* now a surplus revenue amounting to about seven millions of dollars. A md.cious distribution of this amount in different sections of the country, and a |>roper appropriation of it by thede,KisitorieH for the pur|K?se of giving a healthy impetus to commercial affairs, would have H vast deal of influence regulating t|,e movements of our local banks, and keeping them within safer limits. The surplus reVe?ne heretofore has pro duced an immense amount of evil; it 0Hn bp capable of producing a ereat deal of good ? but it must be returned to the channels from which it ha* been drawn by loans from the depositories to the commercial classes, and prevent nnv revulsion in trade by a sudden circulation of these loans. It is time that conservative measures in ad ministering the government of a country like this ?hould be more generally adopted. The principles of both political parties are too much upon extremes and in a majority of cases, a medium course be tween the lines that divide the two parties, will be found most conducive to the real interests of the wrnn^ th^" * ****[** thin&- both P?ties are partly wrong; the extent of one more than the c, her de pends almost entirely upon the qll?tion * ment^Vprinaples Xlh i Jderf tht true *y,tfr" nhonld Cack or THK Late Exn.osiov-We n?K|1Mi, another column a communication, re|?,iv^ ,h" late terrible explosion.

Mode or Raising Rrvewe ? In giving u synopsis oi the rejiort of the Croton Aqueduct Board yesterday, we did not notice that |>art ot tt which relates to ihe much discussed ques tion of the best mode of raising a water revenue.? To this question a larije portion of the report relates, irguinc stoutly in defence of the present system It complains of the agitation that has prevailed, 'and the injury indicted on the annual income from tlii ciuse, which must be abandoned befor<? the preseni plan can be fairly tested. It in quite lair that those who ] enioy the great benefit of the Croton water should p iy for it a reasonable price, and certainly nnjusi in any who are fairly li ible to the tax to avoid it by mean subterfuge and scheming. According to the re|>ort many such abound in this city. Owners of property display a disgraceful unwillingness to put | up the necessary fixtures in houses let to tenants, who are, therefore, compiled to solicit a free use of t'le hydrants which the law allows to poor persons Here is an abuse of this law. It never was intend ?d to screen owners of pro;>erty from paying their I pist quota of the lax, and the law that can be so | ivoided is not sufficiently extensive or stringent. We do not assent to all ihe Board says concerning 'he abuse of free hydrants. A waste of water is in evitable to a greater or less degree in such a large city, and where the supply is so copious as it is in S'ew York. If it can be stopped, well; if not, are >ve to curtuil the free supply of water to the poor, by refusing applications for free hydrants! We hope riot; a geuerous supply of witer to those who are unable to pay for it is the first consideration, and surely ought to take the precedence of that of revenue. It appears that iu pi in of assessment can be iriopted perfe jtly free from fault. Upon the whole, 'he principle of charging the interest of the Croton lebt upon all species of property, real and personal, i- the soundest. That of introducing the water into til houses, and compelling the owners of them to pay for ir, would be intolerable coercion ; to U'ave its use free to all citizens, levying a tax upon houses indiscriminately, would in volve an injustice, as well to those who are exempt by the present law, as to the public in ex empting ihe wealthy possessors of personal property J from their share of ihe burthen; and certainly the latter class participate in its benefits as strongly, though not, perhaps, as directly as the others. We do not see any plan more feasible and equitahle fian the present, and, as the report says, it ought to be fairly tried, always keeping in view that the dif fusion of the benefits of the Croton water is not to be neglected for the sake of raising a greater reve nue than is requisite to pay the interest on the thir teen millions of debt which was contracted in the accomplishment of this great work. The two sub joined tables present a statement of the houses, and steamboats supplied with water during the past year: ? A* Ac cor !?t of thk Number ok Water Taker.*. PRIVATE DWELLING!. So.

One of the London pa. ! p^rs received by the Britannia, gives the following 1 significant paragraph: ? The kingdom of Oude is fast approaching that state of > anarchy ami coulusion. in which it will become impera I tive on our government to interlere in its affair*. This biief announcement in other words would i read thus : ? The kingdom of Oude is fast approaching that state of nnarchv. division, and contusion in which it will become : profitable for our merchants and nobles to have our gov ernment interfere in its affairs ; and in which it will be found an easy task to plunder and murder the quarrelling princes and delenceless inhabitants. This is probably the true interpretation of the sen tence, antl this is ihe policy of England, (fie glory of Britannia, the uniform practice of that nation which calls it national robbery to form a treaty of confederation with a power she acknowledges to be indejiendent, and which is anxious to form the con federation. This is the practice of that nation which is watching every election or cause of divi sion in this country or any other, in the hope of seeing " that state of anarchy and confusion in which it will become imperative on our government to interfere." It is this universal philanthropy of the British gov ernment, ever watchful for opportunities to interfere, that has spread abroad over the world the conquests and the glory or shame of old England, with money wrung from the very life-blood of her ten million paupers. It is this universal phi lanthropy England is ever anxious to behold, and it is her wish to promote in this country "that Htate of anarchy and confusion in which it would become imperative to interfere, "and reduce our now happy slaves to mere machines and paupers. Fikk Investigation. ? The investigation is pro gressing rapidly ; but nothing has transpired, as yet, to throw any light upon the cause and origin of the explosion. Several chemists have been exam ined ; and many of the " sm tiler fry" of that frater nity have gone before the committer, whose wild theories on the nature and properties of salt^-tre, guniK?w(i?-r and inllammabie gasses, have iiflorded much nmiisement, and taken up, unnecessarily, th?* time ot the committee, which could be trtoie profit ably engaged. We hav l>pcn fmtured that it is in contemplation to practically test the theories laid down by all who have been examined, in the event i of the committee not being able to lix the fact ns to ; gunpowder having caused the explosion. The com j mittee will probably re|?ort on Monday. i Intoxication at the Great Fire. ? The Xtieark I Atlvtrtixrr of the 24th instant, gives the report of a tei?|?erance meeting in that city. Among the jsp'akers was Ex-Mayor Clark of this city. He 1 ?tated that ? " Had it not been for intoxicating liquor*, neither the | late destructive fire, nor the one of '35, in Sow York, would have proved half 10 diiantroua as tliey did." This is a wholesale assertion, to say the least of it. Who were intoxicated at the recent tire ? Wer?* i all the firemen ? Were the new police ! Were ! ten out ol a thousand of either the firemen or police intoxicated at that tune ? Had the government troops and sailors drank too much 1 We sawjvery little of this intoxication, at any rate; and we were present at the fire from the beginning of the ca lamity. Fatal Accident o.n the Norwich and Wor cester Railroad ?We learn from Adams Ac Co., that a serious accident occurred on the Norwich and Worcester Hoad, at two o'clock on Thursday afternoon, near Auburn. The locomotive with the freight train in charge, in going from Norwich to Worcester, ran off the track, over a bank thirty feet iiigh. instantly killing Charles Wells, of Norwich, a irakeman, smashing the cars into splinters, and ?tring up the rails for a distance of three hundred ??et. This accident detained the New York train ?'?veral lioura, which was the cause of the non-arri 'I ol the Cleopatra till half |>asl II o'clock ye^ ?;day morning New rails had tobe laid before they cijuld ora? on 'N'i hkaikd.Si'vkd The Niagara arrived at Albany ' iniiday lilieriioon <t In minuter nft>*r 4, instead i half-paat, aa elated Theatricals, 4te. Paj:k Tiieatrk? The third representation ol La JuitH came otl lust night, with the same splendoi which had attended the former ones. The audienc< was very numerous and fashionable, and the arttstb finding themselves again encouraged by the bravo of the house, sang their parts splendidly, and excell ed in delineating the ch iracters thev represented- ? The (rreat success this beautiful opera has met with, shows that the public begin to appreciate these fo reign artists, and induces us to believe that the fourth and lust representation of la Juive, which is an nounced for Monduy night, will be again well attend ed. The leading artists of the company, Md'lle C.tlv?, Mine Casini and Messrs. Arntiux, CiEuriot, Douvry and Garry, were again much applauded, as were also the chorusses.and it is easy to [>erceive that every night the company gains more and more in the public estimation, over popular prejudice. Casklk Garden. ? To the lovers of cmusement, a fine series of entertainments are offered ? among which are, the Overture to La Vivandiire, of the opera of Zamjui ; also, the Overture to Fra liiuvolo, and there are added several pieces by the Orchestra, dances by Messrs. C. T. Pursloe and Kutner, songs, &c., ?fec., making a capital bill. This Garden has been for some time past the resort of all the fashion Niiilo's G*rdkn ? Mrs. Mowatt's benefit last ni^ht was crowded to the ceiling. She never played better. She was, as usual, in high spirits ? all gaye ty, beauty and vivacity. She leaves for Buffalo we hear, next week, so this is thu l?:t mgiit if her appearance this season, it being til-* benefit of Mr. Crisp, who has so ably sustained the lady in all her pieces. As this is the last chance of seeing [his lady, the saloon will be crowded. On Monday Mr. llenry Plaeide will appear at the Garden in "Grandfather Whitehead." I Vauxhall Gakdkn.? ' The entertainments an nounced for this evening are of a very unusualkindi and strongly cull for a continuation of the patron age extended until now on the enterprising director of tins splendid garden. The Harmoneon Family are giving concera in Ban gor, Me. VVi Ich and Mann's Equestrian Company are ex hibiting with great success in Montreal. The Fakir of Ava is displaying his tricks in Port land, Me. Mrs. Mowatt will proceed to Buffalo at the termi nation of her engagement at Niblo's. The Ravel Family, after reaping a golden harvest in llio de Janeiro, have passed Cane Horn, and performed a very successful engagement in Valparaiso. Oil tho Sth April, they were in Sautiago, the capitol of Chili. Miss Delcv, (Kngliyh Soprano,) we understand is to come out for Simpson. Thin laty has considerable re putation as a vocalist, and is the daughter of Mr. Rophino Lacy. Mr. and Mrs. Seguin and Mr. Frazer proceed to C anada, and are expected to return in about four weeks hence. Master Sconcia, assisted by Mrs. Howard, (late Miss Shaw,) is giving concerts with great success in Montreal. Gen. Welch has invaded Canada with his great circus company. He took it by storm. His first attack was on Montreal. Mr and Mrs. Meader, assisted bv Mr. and Mrs. Andrews, are giving concerts at the Town Hall, North ampton, which are well attended and very well liked. Ole Bull gave a concert at Saratoga Springs on Wednesday evening. The St. Louis theatre closed for the present on the 5th inst., alter a season of fair success. The Campunalogians exhibited in Hartford on Thursday night. The Boston odeon is to be turned into a thea tre. The lloating theatre has reached Troy. Yankee Hill is at Providence. Ole Bull is to be at Hanover, N. II., on the 30th ? and 31st instant, at commencement, and will give a Con cert during that time. Mr. Dempster gave n second Concert at Saratoga ! Springs last evening. j Ot'K Military Visitors. ? Tiie New Haven ! Greys, Captain Samuel Toll.s, visited Brooklyn yes i terday, and partook of a collation at Yale's Mansion House. Tlie proprietor of this hotel formerly coin i manded the brigade to which the Greys are at i tached. Tins tine corps numbers thirty-five mus ? kets. The table was covered with all that could ; suit the taste* of the epicure, and was set with , taste. Alter the champaign began to circulate around the table, General Yale made the following | speech: ? New Haven Greys ! ? Two days ago, by a paragraph I in one of the New Vork papers, the Herald, I was np | prised ot your coming, ami I wiote to you immediately, inviting you to accept of a few refreshment* at mj I house. 1 am delighted to see that you have accepted un | invitation, and 1 give you a hearty welcome. The following toast was then offered by Captun ! Tollis: ? I < ien K. R. Yale, our gentlemanly host, whose hospi tality has so generou ly Neeti extended to us, and whose j mentorp, as our former officer, will olwa\s be alive in 1 the bosom of bis fellow citizens and soldiers. 1 Toasts were also tiiven by the following gentle man : ? Lt ( ialpin, of the New'Haven Greys, nnd,Lt Littell, of the Union Blues ot Newark. Iheee were followed by a song, "Come, soldiers, come," wun? by three members of the company, Messrsr Ilall, Fowler, and S|>erry. After which, the company rose from the table ana adjourned to the Garden, where the band played several appropriate tunes. The "Lady of Beauty," and "The Sky is Bright," were 1 then cung by the same gentlemen with much taste and harmony. The Company, after this, took up their line ol mirch for this city en route to New Haven. The Hartford Light Guard, nccompanied by Hamilton's Hartford Brass Band, paraded in the Park at half past twelve o'clock yes terday, in presence of a great crowd of our citizens> Th?ir appearance was very fine, and they went through their manwuvres with the greatest precision They leave to-day, and will call at New Haven on their way to Hartford. They are commanded by Col. Seymour. About half past four o'clock yesterday afternoon, this company went through their exercise in Wall sireet, opposite the Exchange, in excellent style, which drew forth the admiration of upwards of 2000 persons, who had assembled together to witness ihem. They were afterwards marched into the sa loon of the Exchange, where they proceeded wilh a continuance of their exercise, their very excellent band in the meanwhile discoursing sweet music. Bkacon Course, Hoboken ? The hurdle race for S'500, between James L>. McMan's liarse Living ston nnd the Canada horse Hops, comes ofT over this course on Monday next, at 4 o'clock. The race is mile heats, to leap four hurdles, each three feet six inches high. The same day a purse of S'.iO will be given for a foot race, quarter of a mile, and to leap 12 hurdles each, 3 feet K inches high, to get over as they please. These two matches will afford ample sport for one day, and be well worth witnessing. Launch. ? A splendid schooner ot 240 tons, called the "Josephine," to be commanded by Capt Latourette, will be launched this afternoon at 3 o'clock, from Mr. John Thomes'yard, foot of Hous ton street, E. R . This vessel is one of four now | building by Johnson ic Lowden, for their old line I nemi-weekly New York and Baltimore Packets. The Mystery Silver ? We have at last aseer* tained the true cause of the visit of the l. riicom to this city. It has very little to do with " the man in the white hat." She has been sold for filty ih< u sand dollars to a company of Spaniards and Amen cans. It i? their intention to place her on the line between here and Havana. Mistakis at the Fire ?Alderman Cozzens states that no female was turned away from the door of the American on the morning of the fire. And it was the Adelphi, ^.and not the Philadelphia Hotel ihat w as destroyed. The Spring Garden Insurance Company of Philadelphia lost #10,000 and not Life Iwrapck. ?

The above Institution is likely to experience ? of embarrassment in being deprived ot their rooms in the Park, the Corporation having ?iicnitied such an intention on a recent occasion The pretext lor this step, on the part ot the Com mon Council, i? the accommodation of the Marine Court with a better room than that now used by it. which is found to be too small and badly ventilated The members of the Institute ure complaining bit terly ot the treatment they have received, and con. tend that it would not only be disgraceful but unjust in the Common Council to turn them out Front the animus of the remarks made at t u meeting held by the Institute in reference to tin* case, on Friday evening, the officers and most ot the members seem to regard it as little less than an outrage to eject them. No doubt the contemplated act of the municipal authorities is a good deal exag gerated in the eyes of the sufferers by the high views taken of the importance of their body, for, certainly, there was no small degree of boasting and self-glorification indulged in by the speakers on the occasion referred to. Leaving the taste of the matter out ot the question, it would be far better to leave the task of eulogizing the Institute and the mighty works it has performed to others, although perhaps a trifling portion of vain iv is excusable in those who certuinlv take som< trouble as the officers of the body, whether it if merely expended or not. There are those who dit fer however, from the gentlemen of the Institute u the' views they take of the extent ot its influenc< on the <ire ut interests which it proposes to benefit It is doubted whether, with all the good intentions ind zeal of the active men of the Institute, they possess the means and oualificationa requisite to realise their objects. The Corporation mny ttik< this view of the matter : it may possibly be Iriendly euou 'h to agriculture and the mechanic arts, and vet be unable to see how some half score of well meaning persons, comprising the officers ot the In stitut'*, can do much to foster and promote these in terests. They may happen to think that in order t he useful, such a body must be popular, and means ot oper ition sought after by the public. No it is a truth, and notorious to nil who take anocca siomd look in at the periodical meetings held in th rooms of the Soeiety in the Park, that .he attendant is usually, nay, invariably extremely thin, and aivm noevidence of an i nte rest or even curiosity on the pan of the public towards the Institute or its proceedings Its annual fairs are the only demonstration that cal forth any thins: like popular approval or ?ymP?thv . but it is doubtful whether there would S0' Jjc ft", th" same patronage extended to fairs ot any ?tn^ kind, or held for any other purpose, no how HirtV?rent in their objects. Moreover, the Common Council may sincerely think that the Marine Court has functions to fulfil, and a jurisdictionquiteasin,. porta nt as the American Institute. and tha the ben ;,tS of the former are far more indispensable and tan gible than those ot the latter. Pnmnra Assuming such to be the views of the Con^ra tion we do not perceive the propriety of denoun cing them for applying that portion ot their ProP?r ty nfow used by'the Institute to the wants ioT the M - l ine Court, nor do we see a becoming dignity in th conduct of its officers and members in imputing discreditable motives to, and declaiming agains the Common Council. On the other hancl , there ls ,r00d reason that the Institute should ieel unnoyer at^being turned out. We understand when th* last 2n Tars lease was granted of their rooms, they ex penned a considerable sum to put them in "W"'' that thev got them in a ruinous and filthy condition, and by an outlay of money and. labor put them in their present decent and convenient form. All ? is crrtlitabk' Co, he manner, , b?t? th. ? g their forethought quite apparent therein . it wouu have been much more prudent in them to provide iffninst the evil of an uncertain tenure, before thej underwent a serious outlay, than trust to of chances, which is now turning out ad verse. We know the then Cor[)oration was very friendly to tn? Institute, and professed to see in it a grand instr ? inent ot benefit to American industry; we arc ^awurj iliat the report of the Committee to whom was re fer red the application for the lease, spoke in flatter ing terms of1 'the Institute. All this may have indu ced the latter to confide too much, or become fi r .retful of the fact that Corporations, as well as popu Tuitv liave a very evanescent existence, and that l b v no* means followed, that because the Institute was cherished ten years ago, that it should be so to '"with one remark more we drop the subject. It is undoubtedly the right of the city ^hers to jisi'os of their property an they please. It is their pnvii j. and their dutv to examine the pretentions and weigh the claims of the American Institute. If they con sider its utility, and its influence salutary, thev ought to take it by the hand and render it substantial Sane" but if . h.y seriou-ly believe its high pre tentions are unfounded, and that it can be di'-pt n I with without any detriment to the artizan, the agn culturist, or the public generally, ihey are undei ^110 obligation to lister, to the remonstrances el the Arne rican Institute, nor bind themselves by precedent, set by Corpoiations ten years ago.

The Camden Mail of (hit* week reveals a re inatkablecuse of life and death in that vicinity on Hun day last? an Englishman, Richard Bicklord Holge. aged about 3d year*. The Mail give* this account of him : ? ? "Thl? gentleman recently came into the neighborhood, to settle, where he hud purchased a small farm. He was an Englishman by birth, and was evidently a man of education, who hail mingled with good society. He had no family, lived entirely alone, with the exception of hit dog. and shunned all intercom se with thofo near him ? On Friday last he was taken sick, and to the oiler of a neighbor to minister to his wants, he returned a most decided negative. He peremptorily rejected all proffer ed aid, and insisted upon pitying for any and every little act of kindness. During Friday he made out to reach his next neighbor's house, with a note which he wished conveyed to a farmer a mile or two distuut, with whom lie had boon much Ic.-s reserved. This farmer came to his assistance, and called in Dr. Coo|>er on Sunday. The Dr. found Mr. H. in the cellar of his house, upon some straw, laboring under such mental excitement, and a monomania that he was pursued by individuals from Fngland, who were at the time infusing deadly gases into the surrounding atmosphere with intent to destroy hiin. In other respects lie appear to be sane, conversing with the Dr. in a connected uud intelligent manner. The Dr. did not think him in imminent danger, although quite a .sick man, and left him intending to call the next day. In the evening, about 7 o'clock, he died ! the friend he had sent for. and his wife being uloue present. Thus dying so suddenly, a stranger, away from re latives and friends, it was deemed advisable to hold an inquest upon the body. Accordingly, the Corouer, Mr. i Porter, called a jury at the house on Monday morniug, who decided that deceased died from natural causes. ? The Coroner also took possession of deceased'* personal property, which consisted ol a collection of choice and valuable books, an extensive and elegant wardrobe, a consideiable sum of reudy money, together with various articles of ornament aud personal comfort, indi alive of a degree ?f intelligence aud refinement totally at variance with his late comse and anchoristic habits of life. His house was destitute ofa bed. bedstead, and almost every other arti -le of the commonest necessity ! His farm, on which he had lived since March, is bearing a luxuriant crop of weeds, he haviug neither horse nor cow, spade or hoe ; and refusing all applications either for its cultiva tion or improvement ! He Mated, before his decease, that ho had neither relative or friend in this country. He camc oiiginally from Devonshire, und lias a brother and ; two shtem in England. Our brethren in the cities are lequestcd to notice this death, and to stale that further inturmatiou will be tilforded on application to Mr. Porter, or the Editor of the Camden Mail."
