As our foot first pressed the deck of the gallant steamer, which, cutting its way through the noble Hudson, was fast hurrying us to our destination, we could not help reflecting on the vast changes of less than a century. We were carried back in thought to the years, when these shores were resonant only j with the red man's whoop, and the peaceful current of the river, only broken by the plash of his light 1 paddle. The thought was to us big with prophecy of the future destiny of the Anglo Saxon race. Old forest trees have fallen before its onward march ? savages have yielded to its superior inmd the hunt ing grounds ol their fathers ? cities have sprung up in ttie wilderness where it has breathed? and it shall cease not its progress, nor fulfil its high mis sion, until the whole world shall own its sway. In our wake lay a splendid city, teeming with rich products brought from far distant climes ? the centre of a vast commerce, of a struggling and am bitious refinement; of mighty projects and strange schemes, some destined like airy biftbles to burst as9?on as formed; others to grow into realities at once wonderful and brilliant Far before us lay the " magic waters" ? the cool bowers ? the glittering pavilions ? the substantial and elegant hotels of mo dern Saratoga, where, less than a century back, the solitary Indian, as he glided through trie peaceful forest, stooped to sip the refreshing spring. But hark! tinkle, tinkle, goes the bell, that sad remembrancer and drawback on all the pleasures of this life ? notice to disburse the quid pro quo for our transit. Well, we felt happy in complying, for all is comfortable around us. liad a steamboat ex isted in Noah's time, that sage old gentleman would undoubtedly have adopted it for the preservation of the human race. A modern steamboat, however, does somewhat resemble the ark of the great con servator, in the multitude of the different species congregated together. Here a belle ? there a washerwoman. On one side, an exquisite of the first water, pulling his segar with all the airy light ness of veritable bon ton ? on the other, a greasy soapboiler, fresh from the steanT of his own vat. There stands a wealthy merchant, or Wall 6treet broker, who shaves notes at forty per cent, and laughs at the devil ! There is an itinerant Jew pedlar without his pack, and a faro deal ing swindler, seeking whom he may devour. ? And there, too, is the red, jolly fare of Parson Stump and his fair daughter? a party of mustachiod dandies, and a bevy of lauding, bright-eyed i/r ninisellt*, with their gallant beaux. And here they are, nil at Saratoga, drinking tumblers of Congress water. The hotels are all well filled, and the fashionable season will probably commence about the 10th inst. A great many distinguished and celebrated mem bers of the aristocracy are expected next week, and no doubt the season will wind up with great Mat.

This morning about two o'clock, the extensive store room of I'uterbaugh St Allison was dis covered on lire, says the Xenia (Ohio) Jefjertnn of tho 3d inst. Their eniire stock of good.";, probably to the amount of ten thousand dollars, were destroyed. The large brick building occupied by P. & A. stare keepers ; A. il. Deal, harness maker, and Samuel Crumbaugh, hat store, was consumed. The brick building occupied by U. D. Williamson, grocer, I) Burr, bookseller, and partly as a dwelling by two or three families, was also de stroyed. The loss of property cannot be less than from fifteen to twenty thousand dollars. One of the buildings was insured. The most deplo' nldo puit of the calamity , was the loss of two very estimable young men, James Kenny and William Steele, clerks of Puteibaugh At Alii son, who slept in tho store. When tho tlames w ere dis covered and the door burst open, Mr. Kenny was found lying against the fiont door, senseless, cut and bruised to i a considerable extent. He was conveyed to a dwelling j not far otl", where ho breathed his last, without being able to give any itif'oi ma*ion how tho lire commenced. Mr. Steele whs discovered lying in bed, probably senseless, but could not be rescued in consequence of the llames. His body was afterwards discovered in tho cellar where it hail fallen through. The back door of the store room was standing open, from which it is pretty conclusive that a most loul minder has been committed, and the store set on fire. One of the villains was arrested in this city yesterday evening : he was followed down the railroad by an ofli. cerfroin the scene of blood. ? Cin. Commercial, ting. 4. Wool. ? The market for this staple has main tained a very gratifying activity throughout the sea son. The quantity which has been marketed hero shows an increase over any former year? and the qiian titjr is destined to increase steadily Irom year to year, as the farmers more ami motn turn their intention to sheep husbandry. It is believed, nlso. that quantity will not only be augmented, but that quality will bo greatlj im proved ? for those who emhaik in the business will un derstand that the true policy is to stock their faynis with sheep for producing a lino quality of wool ? f?r the ex pense ol keeping is no gi eater, while the profits are much increased. Tho quantity of wool which has been purchased in this place the current season, is ascertained to be in round number*, 'WO 000 pounds, and it is still coining in, *1111 it is believed, before the sea ion closes, the quantity which will have found a market here will not fall short of Q AO, 000 pounds. In view of thil fact, we probably hazard nothing in saying, that the ; quantity of wool purchased in Akron tho present season j will exceed that of any other point in the state. At least, such i* the opinion of ninny well informed indi- | viduals upon the subject. Price* this season have innged j from -!?' to 35 cent* a pound? averaging about 'J? cent* a | pound -Jlkro n lltacnn. Coarse Wool. ? It costs just about ns much to : keep a sheep producing coarse wool, as it does to Keep one of the lineit \ ariety, viz: 2 4 cent*. Tho w ool < of tho former i* valueless, inasmuch a* it will cost for j fodder about a* much as its wool will bring. Hence, 1 there i* no wool of the quality imported to this country at the 5 cent* valuation, raised in tho country. A \ an kee sheep would be ashamed to carry it about with him. \ et the locofoco paper* have a great deal to say about the low duty upon coarse wool, a* if it came in competi tion with any wool produced in thil country.

An liomoepitthic anecdote, which proved very cletJr'y. the.efflcaoy of llonoepatnic globulus.: ? In Phil adelphia it is the practice fo r the physician'to leave a family chest containing a supply of globulus sufficient lor live years, with a book ol directions. It ao happened that some two or three little girls had what is called a children * tea party, and by some means used the con tents of this medicine chest, for sweetening their tea, mis- 1 taking it for sugar. The parents of the children, on as certaining the (act, became greatly alarmed, and de spatched la messenger lorthwith for the physician; he s*on arrived, but as not the least unpleasant symptoms were apparent in his patients, he solved the important question that alarmed the parents, by informing them that, "as tho children had taken the whole, being of dif ferent properties, that one kind had completely counter* I acted the dangerous effects of the other, thereby miracu lously saving them harmless." It is said that Mrs. Kirkland", the popular autho- ' rosn of Korest Life, is preparing a characteristic volume for the American Library of Wiley sc Putnam. Mr. Mat thews, Mr Simms, anil other American writers are enga- , god in the same way. More than five thousand copies of Wiley's elegant edition of Kothen have been sold du- 1 ring the few months since it has been issued. The other , works of the same series sell nearly as woll. We learu from the Newburyport Herald, that the aggregate valuation of that town, by the assessors, this year, is $3,747,400 Last year it was $3,484,100, showing an increase of nearly half a million since the last year. The rate of taxation is $7 80 on the $1,000 The Bartlett Steam Mills Company pay a ta\ the present year of $2,730; James Steam Mills, $1,660; Essex Mill, $610. The crop of fruit in New York and Ohio, it is said, will be very short. In the western part of New York there will be about half an average crop of apples, while in the eastern part of the State there will be much less than this. With the exception of a strip of land a lew miles wide, bordering the couth side of La Erie, there is said to be a total failure throughout Ohio. It is stated that there are now more than fifty pa tients at the Ilydropath or Water-cure establishment in Brattleboro', which has only been opened this season.

The fact appears to be that the company original ly intended to locate on the south side of the river, and a liberal and even generous spirit was manifested by the citizens of Andover, in selling their land at low prices. The company, however, entrusted n lawyer of the place with the business of obtaining and per'ecting the titles to the real estate which they desired, ana he, it was found, bad used his knowledge so as to get hold of an es tate, and demand n price so extortionate that the direc tors of the company would not submit to it, and accord ingly decided to resort to tho Methuen side of the river. The people of Andover are exceedingly indignant about the matter, as the estate in question was recently bought for less than >3000, and the price demanded of the com pany for it was $30,000. The Methuen tide of the river possesses us good facilities for the work as Andover. It is a level plain, and the water of the Merrimack is to be made follow in a grand canal 100 feet in width, through the place to he used to drive the machinery of the. factories and again find its place in the bed of the river Hundreds of laborers are now engaged in excavating this canal, and the dam across the Meirirnack is to be immedi ately commenced. Tho editor of tho Dancer# Courier, who has recently visited the spot, says the place is to be laid out in the most approved manner, with streets of ample width, and public squares adorned with trees and shrubbery . aud it is believed that this place is destined to be not only a beautiful but a larger city than its neigh bor, Lowell ; as it will have more water power and may avail itseif of the advantage of water as well as of rail road transportation. It is more eligibly situated for building purposes, and its plan is more regular and pleas ing to tlic eye. It requires some stretch of the imagina tion to look upon the now peaceful fields and wild wood lands of a sandy plain, and fancy that in a very few years tiiere will spring up a mighty city of brick and mortar, with its paved streets? its lolty manufactories? its forest of chimnies, aud the busy hum of an industrious popula tion. ?

The watchman in the cu|>ola of the City Mall is a good illustration of a singular effect produced by the mi'nd upon the body? an effect that philosophy has long observed without being able fully to explain- He either wakes regularly every hour, or he cries tho hour correctly while asleep! This has long been observed by some oi our citizens. For in stance. when the tire which consumed Knickerbocker Hall was discovered by the private watch of tho Banks ami Exchange Company, it was found impossible to wake him; the whole neighborhood was aroused- tho bells ot the several churches were clanging their dire lul choius ? t'ut no sound from tho City Hall. A friend of ours observed, on looking at his watch, that it wanted but a lew minutes of four, anil remarked, " See if he does not wake to cry the hour." Sure enough as the last stroke of tho clock sounded, forth came the stento rial tignal, heard above all the chaos of alarm that now iille.l tho city, issued directly towards the llames that Hashed in his face as be uttered it, " Past four o'clock, and a-a-all is well- 1-1." This effort seemed to wake him, for be directly afterwards gave his alarm. The same j singular phenomenon was observed on Tuesday morn. 1 ing at the lire in Park street. We make no complaint. Our citizens generally understand that they are depend ent on private watchmen for their safety , and seeming perfectly content to be so. Our object is solely to get at the solution of a philosophical problem. Does he wake every hour, or docs he cry the hour while asleep? ? ,'llhany Jlrgvs, Jlugnst 7. A New Patent. ? A very valuable improvement I on the " .Kolian attachment," and all instruments in which the tone is produced by a curront of air acting upon a thin metallic roed, has just been patented at Washington by the ingenious inventor, Mr. Charles Horst, of this city. Mr. Horst's inveution coniists in perfecting the reeds used in the above instruments, and securing them iu such a manner as to render them less liable to get out of repair, and enabling the performer to rnise or lower their pitch at pleasure. An instrument supplied with Mr. Horst's improved reeds can be tuned to chord with other instruments, or have its pitch raised or lowered with as much ease as that of a guitar or violin. In case a reed should give out, its place can bo supplied by a new one, and be perfectly tuned, without resorting to the usual injurious process of filing ai.i sciaping, and iu as short a time as a string can be placed in any stringed instrument.?

In the stable burned in Albany, on Wednesday, were two horses, one of which (a mare belonging to Mr. Hurst,) was tied by a strong halter, farthest from the door, with her head near thespotwhere the fini originated. After, her head and eyes were considerably burned, she broko her halter, jumped over the partition bar, broke open the door and made her escape and by running to the bake house gave the first alarm of fire. This fact seems to reverse the rule of action in horses .similarly situated.
