Two hundred and twenty-five vears ? to wit, in the year 16s20 ? ;t handful of brnve aud hardy Puritans landed at th i? spot, from tlie " Mayflower," having left behind them in their na tive land, all the happy associations ?f home and the society of friends, as well as the unrighteous gripe of British tyranny. This place, as you are aware, is the locale where originated the first permanent set tlement in New England. The principal object oi their immigration was the ho|>e of enjoying a greater liberty of religious opinion, and for this tney iierilled their lives, and braved the dangers of a new home in the wilderness #f America. In the dead of winter, (November 9th) land was made, which proved to be Ca|>e Cod ; and having finally prepared to leave the vessel ? a contract was drawn up, and subscribed by forty-one (tersons, " for their better government," and Mr. John Carver was chosen Governor for one year. A location was at once pitched upon for a settlement, and Borne twenty fami lies commenced the work of erecting a dwelling, each for their temporary accommodation. On the last day of the year, Dec. :11st, 1630, public worship was tor the first time attended by the exiles, ana the place was called " Plymouth." Two and a quar ter centuries have elapsed since that limit ? ana the steady march of improvement has clamped its traces upon the spot, where rested, then, the van-guard of " the coming millions," who were destineu to suc ceed them ! Amongst the relics of those days, long departed, a portion of the rock upon which the Pilgrims land ed, is seen here. It was taken from "the rock" near the shore, and is embedded, upon the walk, in one of the principal streets, directly in front of "Pil grim's Hall. It is surrounded by a neat iron fence, upon which appears the names of the original puri tans. The hall is a place always visited by strangers It is decorated with Col. Sargeant's magnificent pic ture of the landing of the Pilgrims, which that gen tleman presented to the town several years ago. It is valued at some $3,000. There is also an antique chair or two, one of which belonged to Gov. Car ver ? some cooking implements used on board the May Flower ? King Phillip's cap ? and numerous other articles belonging to the "first settlers" ? all in an admirable state of preservation. Upon the out skirts of the town is laid out a beautiful burial groand, called "Oak Grove Cemetery," a quiet and lovely spot, consecrated as the last home of the de parted. Its |ieaceful stillness and romantic location, will well repay the stranger for visiting its grounds. Among (he recent improvements in this vicinity, is the "Old Colony liuilroad," which is now nearly completed to Boston, and upon which, it is said, the cars will be placed, eaily this fall, A large depot is in progress of erection, in the lower part of the town, and an extensive hotel is also being finished, near its centre. It is hi contemplation, I learn, by the stockholders of this road, to apply for a charter next season, for its extension to Sandwich ? and there is every reasonable prospect that it will ultimately reach the town of Barnstable, connecting finally with the steamer to Nantucket, and thus adding another thread to the immense iron net-work wlrcn is spreading so rapidly over this country, and espe cially in New England. There is a most excellent line of mail stages running hence to Sandwich, un der the direction of Hoyden, (a relation of Boyden, late of the Astor,) which will connect with the rail road, when it is completed, and will be run through twice a day. Sandwich. ? The town of Sandwich contains lit tle which can interest the traveller, save that which is apparent in most of ihe smaller villages in Massa chusetts. The "Sandwich Glass Company's" works located here, are a very extensive establishment however, employ ire nearly three hundred persons; and manufacturing three or four hundred thousand dollarc worth ot glass ware annually, most of which is pressed or moulded. Some very fine specimens and models ot useful and ornamental ware were shown me, This is one of the largest glass compa nies in the United States? the capital invested being about $250,000, There are one or two excellent academies here. Tlie school of Mr. Wing, a member of the society of " friends," is deservedly popular, and is usually well tilled with y ungsters from nil parts of tne Union. Within a tew years this town has increased considerably. A number ot pretty residences adorn the vill ige, which is laid out with neatness, and it is proverbial for its orderly and quiet character. The 'own of Sandwich has established its reputation tor piettv women, and, for its size, few places in New England can boast ot so great a ratio ot benutilul girls asaretound within its borders. Some dozen years since this idace was much visi ted by s,oitsmen, (particularly those who found pleasure in piscatory enjoyments.) in search of game or fish ? the latter abounding in great profusion in the numerous rivers, brooks and ponds, which are so common hereabouts. A very respectable hotel was established here ten years ago. kept by one Fcs senden, where " the boys" generally congregated in th? season, and where many a sparkling siriiij; ol trout have been disposed of in times gone by. Jut those days are departed ? the trout, for the most part have glided to parts unknown ? Fessendea has van ished?the champagne glass no longer ji igles on the board? and " those days tome not again !" Some eighteen miles distant, over as sandy a road as one would wish to find, the traveller will reach the vil lage of Falmoetu.-- -The town of Falmouth, proper, lies upon the lower extreme of the Cape, and was incorporated in 1690, or thereabouts. Along its westerly Mde is Buzznrd'sBay, and Vineyard Sound bounds it ujHjn the South. The land in this region is quite an good, or better, than the general average on Cape Cod, though the soil inevery direction here is very thin and sandy. Within the boundaries of this town, there are a great number of fresh ponds, which, until latterly, were most plentifully stocked with fish. Falmouth is made up ot several divisions, as North, EaM, West, \*c. \VoodV Hole, a very good harbor, lies upon its south-west point, where u fine house is kept by Mr. Webster, which, during the warm months, is filled with visiters f rom varieus paits of this State, New York, and other places. In former years a considerable whaling interest was held here ; but ill success, and perhaps a lack ot judicious management on the part of those con cerned, has caused it to run out, and but little is now-a-aays heard of Falmouth whalers. There was also, formerly, immense quantities of salt man ufactured upon the shores here (as was common in all parts of the cape); but the article is now made cheaper in western New York, and is imported in real quantities, so that the comjietion has finally re uced the manufacture here to a nominal amount, and it is discontinued altogether in places, where the dilapidated works will not pay for repairing.? Large quantities of pine wood are annually shipped here to supply the steamers which ply on the Sound between Rhode Island and New York. The village of Falmouth is one of the best loca ted, and perhaps the prettiest upon the Cape. There are some hundred and fifty dwellings within its cir cle, all of which are of modern construction, and tasty architecture, giving the place that air of pros perity and healthiness so common in New England villages. A considerable portion of the male inha bitants are connected with the fisheries, or are en gaged in maratime pursuits, in the southern trade, pucketing, or otherwise, and are a hardy, honest, and hospitable people ? courteous to strangers, and affable in their general intercourse. The farms here are immense tracts ot land, comprising, often times, hundreds of acres, the character ot which, to a city resident, renders the paradoxical assertion plausible, that "the more a man has of it, the poorer he is " Hut every rood of it is turned to advan tage by the yeomen, in cultivation, grazing, sheep feeding, etc., and the residents labor hard, but con trive to make a good living, keen out of debt, pay their taxes, and ask no favors. The population is rising three thousand persons. Some twenty miles to the south east lies the flourishing town ot Barnstable.? There is a pretty little steamer, called the " Yacht,"whieh nrnkesa trip weekly from Boston to thin town, in which, during the summer sea>op, thousands of people come hither for the be nefit of the sea voyage, nnd the fresh air. The Landing at Barnstable is most abominable. The bar at the entrance of the harbor prevents the passage of vessels of any considerable draught, and the pas senijera on arriving nre "dumped out" ? two or three hundred yards from the shore ? into boats alongside, or into vehicles which are driven out from the beach, upon the flats, guoh a scene of confusion and trouble follows as is seldom met with elsewhere in this region. It should be remedied at once. There are about one hundred craft (sloops and 1 schooners) employed in fishing, which hail Irom i this place. The Patriot, a loctfoco print, is pub limed here, and is edited by one Phinney, who, in his sphere, " enacts more wonders than a man," 1 and who received last year his maximum of #1500, I as weigher (or measurer) in the Boston Custom Mouse, for a tew months' services in the employ of l nele Sam, and then retired with his Inurels and his 'tin. He is now busy in abusing the power which appointed him to office, and which furnished mm with so generous a spoonful of the government 'V" sincerely believes himself a politician ' of the first water, anil perhaps he is. Avery hand- ' come court house is erected here, and there are nu merous churches and other buildings of note m the town. The village of Ilyannis (or ?f/?y-annts, as the \ ork boys call it) 'ies upon the southerly Pide ot Barnstable, winch is noted lor being the tarrying place, or sort of hali-way house, for the masters and mates attached to the numerous small coasting c raft which uly between New York and Boston, and " all along shore." It is a pretty neighborhood, has a very good harbor, and the breakwater renders it a spot of safety for the riding of vessels of ail sorts which may nave occasion to round the Cape. i The villages of Cotuit. Waquoit, Cnequaket, Oysterville, &c., surround the principal part of Barnstable, and are neat settlements, characterized bv most excellent chowders, capital Indian pud dings, rare frost Ash, and scuppog, the choicest sau quetaah, the biggest cawhogs, the b t venison, the 1 thickest codlisn, the largest pies, the fattest pigs? 1 the stoutest boys, and the plumpest girls, on all , Cape Cod After reaching " Wood's Hole," an i hour's sail in the Nantucket steamer (which runs across three times a week), brings the traveller to the handsome town of New Bedford. ? The distant reader can have but a skeleton idea of the large amount of business j done here, and the flourishing prospects of the beau- 1 titul town of New Bedford. All that is generally ; known abroad in regard to this Dlace, is the fact that it is largely engaged in the wlialing business. The stranger is agreeably surprised at its general ap pearance, and not least at the universal good order which iirevailsin and about the town. The wharves, the harbor, and the principal streets, present scenes of bustling activity, most business-like in all their features, a circumstance which strikes the casual visitor as highly commendable. It is not over rating the fact to add, that of the many thriving towns on our New England coast, few appear to bet

ter advantage, in u moral or business point of view, than this flourishing and well ordered olace. New Bedford was originally known by the Indian nime of Acuschnutt The heart of the town is as thickly settled as many of our Atlantic cities, aud on he main streets are one or two excellent hotels ? tParker's among the rest. Upon the outskirts of the town are erected numerous beautifully decorated summer residences, tastefully built, and ornamented with pretty gardens, court yards, or grounds. From those located upon the higher sites, a magnificent view of the bayand harbor is obtained. The railroad from Boston connects this place with the Literary Emporium, by a two hours ride, and the cars run hence to the city twice a day. The oflice of Collector of this port is worth some two or three thousand dollars per annum. The post ts at present occupied by Mr. Joseph Adams? a coonish, Tyler, locofoco, (formerly editor of a de funct Boston paper,) who received the appointmen two years ago, or less ? and whose chief recommen dation for the place, consisted in the fact of his ha ving held an umbrella over honest John's head dul ring a shower which overtook him upon his arrival at lloxbury, (where Adams then resided,) on the Ifith of June, 1S48. But Adams could'nt afford to do this for nothing, so he ''hounded" John until the latter was forced to put him somewhere, to get rid of his importunity at the White House. He w ill be looked after, anon. The harbor of New Bedford is an excellent nne, though difficult of access. The great bulk of the business of the town is connected directly or indi rectly with the whaling traffic, which is the main feature of the place. There are upwards of two hundred and fifty ships, barques, and brigs, employ ed in this trade here, giving employment to some five thousand seamen, and the importation ot oil and whalebone is immense. There are four or five banks, with an aggregate capital of some million and a half, and few places in this region are advanc ing with more rapid strides than New Bedford. A Mr. Rolch, (now spelt Roach,) a Quaker, was the lirst whaler here, who originated the business, and having procured Irom France and England, many years ago, the rmht to export oil into those coun tries free of duty? he was enabled to accumulate a handsome fortune, and establish a business which is now of the greatest importance, and of proportion ate profit. The town was incorporated in 17S7, and contains at this time some fifteen or sixteen thou sand inhabitants. During a fortnight's visit lo the places above named, I have met a most marked courtesy among the inha bitants, which commends itself to the attention ol the sojourner here. A f eeling of kindness and open handed hospitality prevails with the jieople. which is a characteristic in this vicinity, and wnich is most grateful to the wayfarer. Revolutionary Rclle*. ?

A lady yesterday afternoon lost a pocket-book containing $40 in money, and a check for $-200 ; for the recovery of which a reward of $10 was offered. The pocket-book was found by Mr. Henry Smith, the " razor strop man,'' who called at our office this morning for the purpose of advertising it, where he met the loser, who had called for a similar purpose. The lady tendered Mr. I Smith the $10, which he refused to receive, but directed the lady to No. 1 Scott's Court, where lay a sick man, destitute, to whom he desired the reward might l>e paid, which was accordingly done. ? Bcalon Tramcript, jlu gmt 6. According to the report of an expert geoloeis t Von Ceroid, diamonds hare been discovered in the Mex ican mountain range in the Siena Madre, in the direc tion of Acapulco, to the South-West of the city of Mex ico Humboldt had conjectured that diamonds and pla tina occurred farther to the North-West, in the gold washerv of Sonoro. It is also said that immense tracts of auriferous alluvia occurred in Upper California, is also in New Mexico. They are principally in the pos session of wild tribes, a circumstance which will accel erate the intrusion of North Americans, and hasten the taking possession of them by stranger*. Orders have been sent to the custom house and the post office in New Orleans city, to send all the fo reign coins received by them to the branch mint, to be recoined into American pieces? the gold into half and quarter eagles, and the silver into quarter dollars ? whenever it may be dons without loss. The importa tion of specie hero chiefly consists of Mexican dollars, on which, when recoined, there is a slight gain, especial ly on the coinage of Durango. The mint of Zacatecas uses more alloy , and is not in such good repute. On Spanish hammered dollars, and on German coins of all descriptions , there is a loss, when broken up and work ed over? much greater than on English sovereigns and French coins. The $30,000 directed by the Secretary of the Treasury, to be converted into dimes and half dimes for the accommodation of our citizens at the Tost affice, are now ready. Not less than one thousand buildings will be erected in St. Louis the present season, xhere are thirty brick yards in operation, and the number of brick manufactured this summer will, it is said, exceed forty five millions ; yet the demand, at this time, is greater than the supply. The population is now more than forty thousand, and the new houses of the present year, which will all be filled before next April, will make room for an addition of six or seven thousand. We may therefore calculate that St. Louis will contain, next spring, forty six or lorty-seven thousand inhabitants. No other city iii the Union is increasing with equal rapidity. Tlie Peterboro * Chronicle says that many have Buf fered severely fr m the fires which we some time kince noticed us running through some of the surrounding townships. In Verulain the whole Scotch settlement is ocmpletely destroyed. In Knnismore some fields of wheat have been consumed, while the townshipof Smith has also suffered. A correspondent of the Tropic , writing from Vera Cruz, Mexico, says ? We have had no earthquakes lately; after the one we had in the month of March, which pro\ - ed so disastrous, an attempt was made here to collect, by subscription, a sufficient sum to give the priests, to have earthquakes stopped; but the funds were too low. The Missouri Herald says great distress prevails on the bottom lands bordering on the Osage river. The recent unprecedented riso in that river destroyed the crops, buildings, cattle, &.C., on the lowlands, leaving a large number of families entirely destitute. The Bedford Mineral .Springs, in Massachusetts, are said to be fully equal in medicinal efficacy to those of Saratoga. They are only sixteen miles from Boston, and are already much frequented.

Cyrus Libby, master of the brig Porpoise, was commenced ou Friday, in Portland, before T. A. Deldois, Esq , a Commissioner of the Circuit Court. The complaint is founded on the 4th section of the statute ot 181*. and alleges that the captain of the Por poise brought last year two native African boys from the East coast of Africa to Hio Janeiro, against the pro visions of the act above cited. Most of the day was occupied with the testimony of one Hendricks, a Swede, one of the crew of the Porpoise, and Lieut. Duer, who brought the brig from Hio. On Friday, another of the crew of the Porpoise was exam ined. After him, the District Attorney railed Pedro, one of the negro boys. He is apparently from thirteen to sixteen years of age, and has some knowledge of the Portuguese language. His testimony was interpreted by William H. Peyton. The narrative "of this witness, and his cross examination occupied the greater part of the day. On Saturday the second boy was examined through the interpreter. Manufactures at the East ? Nashua, one of these days, will be a great place for business. It is now ; but a few years will show a great increase. Pre parations are already making for the establishment of ii large and extensive Iron Foundry, east of Main, and , south of Pearl streets, which we understand will go into operation within a few months. A company is about beiug formed, as wo are told, for the erection of a very large mechanics' shop, for all kinds of business, similar to the machine shop on the Nashua Corporation. The machinery is to be propelled by steam. The water privilege at the harbor has been purchased by enter prising gentlemen, who intend erecting a large shop there, as soon as the present lease of the shop expires, which we believe is next spring. The old mill privilege also just east of the hatbor, is we learn, to be converted into some sort of cloth manufactory, a satinet factory, we believe; all of which will make no small addition to our already thriving village. ?
