TheDif-' fcrtnct I It will be gratifying to your readers to hear, I i doubt not, what is going on at this famed and de lightful retreat ; it is literally the Eden of the moun tuins, far away from the dull routine of ordinary business, in the midst of high hills and beautiful valleys, in the land of " stream andjshade." There are ut present, about 500 visitors here from all quarters of the Union ? the rich and poor, healthy and sick, all striving to attain certain ends, either to renovate their declining health, or find society congenial with their sprits. A happier company never met ? contentment, satisfaction, and e&se, are all here. In the morning about five o'clock, the whole company seem to be wrapped in undisturbed repose ; the wand of Morpheus has cast its quiet shadow upon every brow, and nought is heard save the wild whistle of the mountain liird and the deep low mutterings of the cataract. Hut this silence is soon broken by the shrill notes of the breakfast bell, announcing to all that unless they are prepared for. breakfast, tliey either get none, or cold coflee and buckwheat cakes. < )f course all take the hint and gladly arise, with appetites keenly whetted and lully prepared for a hearty meal. Soon crowds may be seen leaving their sweet little cottages; the ladies hanging on the arms of their husbands mid sweethearts, and (he gentlemen walking as if a bear was at their heels and tliey were flying from his fa tal hug. The scene is truly amusing ? ladies nnd gentlemen, and little children, all appearing as it j tliey were hastening to witness some grand feat, | some miracle, which they h;id never before seen 01 heard of. The more modest and fastidious attemp' to disguise the etfect produced l?y ihe sulphur water upon their appetites. They walk slowly, look, indif ferent, and if their bean is with them comment most eloquently upon the great hurry which all ap pear to be in to take their breakfast, while, ut tlie same time they are longing for their tea and toast, and a soft boiled egg. In a very little while the dra ma ends, all have been satisfied. " Havoc in every dish is made with furious revelry," and they retire to their cabins again te enjoy a sweet, quiet sleep. Nothing more is seen of the ladies until nearly dinnertime. Here thev amuse themselves; kilo not know whether with their needles in conversa tion, or in drinking sulphur water. The music, how ever, soon startles them ; its sweet strains seem to mingle with the hoarse roars of far-off waters, and in a lew minutes the wise, beautiful, and accom plished, may be seen with restless footsteps, ap proaching the grand seen* of action. Then the din coinmcnces: dish-covers, knives, forks, plates, and voices, all blending their notes together, almost dis tracting the nervous, and, I hear, have m ide even the well sick After dinner, the compauy again dis perse ; the gentlemen to their rooms to enjoy a so ciable game at whist, and the ladies, we think, to take another sleep ; however, the interval between dinner and supper is not very l#ng, and there i* again a grand meeting for another grand pur pose. In a little while the ball room is open, bril liantly lighted by three magnificent chandeliers, when" Mr. Murray announces with bis bugle that " all is ready." in a short time a splendid displ ly of beauty, talent and refinement may be seen. Our ex-minister, Mr. S , with his gallantry and suaviler in modo ; the Hon. Mr. B., from Virginia, member elect to Congress, a [^rfect moiiel of a gentleman, courteous in manners, refined in conversation, and graceful in person ; Col. H., consul to Galveston, plain, easy, but elegant, delighting the ladies with his description of Texas, and advising them, by ill means to get husbands from there, if possible. Now come the ladies ? first and foremost, the little Indian beauty, Miss R., from Arkansas, she is perfectly irresistible, and) has caused a rivalry to exist among the gentlemen, which I fear will result seriously Modest, unassuming, unsophisticated ? a perfect child of nature? born to adorn the earth, a fair speci men of the work of Omnipotence ; the accomplished Mrs. J., fromlialtiinore, softened bvthe elegancies ofa European tour, and characterized by'a gracefulness of manner, and beauty of |>erson, seldom met with in this country : the Misses 13., from Vireima, perfect specimens of Virginia ladies ; educated in the high est schools of refinement and literature, and breath ing a snirit of amiability in theirjevery word, which may cause the Old Dominion to be proud of them. There are many others, too numerous to mention Miss S , Miss L., and Miss 11., all proving the folly of man, to attempt to resist charms, which would subdue the heart of a savage in his native wild ness, and teach him his insignificanee in comparison with woman, her power and influence. The dance is kepi up until about 12 o'clock, when all retire much fatigued, and prepared to enjoy a comfortable sleep, in this cool and healthy region. Such is an imperfect sketch of what is going on. If the gentlemen here do not succeed in getting partners, it will not be their fault. They have gone manfully to work, em barking theirevi ry thought, talent and energy in the good cause, and are determined not to live bachelort forever, but to settle down in lile, with all those do mestic comforts and enjoyments which alone belong to the married state. Ex-l'resident Tyler, his lady and daughter, reached hereon Thursday evening, from their residence on James Kiver. lie looks remarkably well since his emancipation from his unceasing labors at Washington ? has been very kindly received by all, and every mark of respect paid him. He contemplates remain:ng here for some time, how long, I know not. BlfFFALO, August 12, 1&I5. Trade and Travel ? Steam Navigation ? Naval Newt, 8f< . Business cannot be said to be very brisk here at the present time, although considerable stir is going on about the docks and in the streets. You know we are a go-ahead people here, and it will be truly exemplified when one observes the numerous build ing in process of erection here ? many of which ure splendid and will be ornaments to the city ; but lit tle is doing in the way of producc ? dealers are very cautious and do not dare venture much. Trans actions in wheat and flour are but few; some small lots are daily sold, but generally to supply actual de mand or to keep mills in operation until the new crop begins to come in more freely. There has been and still is a vast amount of travel through this city, no former year is anything like a precedent to it. They come trom all directions, generally visiting the falls and going on east. Our hotels arc doing a grand business. All sojourn ing here speak in the highest terms of the excellent accommodations. You^know, of course, and can judge of the " American," which, in point of ele gance and the excellent manner it is kept, can well compare with any other in the Union. Then we have the " Mansion" and " Western," both good and excellent, besides numerous others, so that all class es can be accommodated and to suit themselves ; but after all, the "American" i * the hotel? its long es tablished reputation making it ditlicult for other hou sesto corn|>ete with it. The steamers upon ihe lake are improving like1 everything else. One boat tiere, the "Empire," is probably the most splendid steain vessel in the world. She is finished and furnished on the most magnificent scale, having u|>on her upper deck a grand saloon, two hundred feet in length, opening upon each side, with splendid state rooms, some of which are large, calculated for families, making it a real luxury to travel upon her. She is besides commanded by a generous hearted fellow, Capt D. Howe, who strives in all things to make his passa ges comfortable and pleasant to those w ho go with him. Gen. Reed will be out during the present month with his new boat, the " Niagara," winch he ' intends shall eclipse the " Empire," and he will try hard She is now finishing am! painting here; she is quite as large as the " Empire, and no pains or expense will tie spared to make her m everything equnl if not superior. The" United States troops stationed here, leave to-day for 1'etrott, FortGratiat, Mackinac, Lake Su perior, \*c., to relieve the troops now there who are ordered south-west, towards Texas Their departure occasions much legret, as the society of the olli cers added much to the gaiety of the city. They leave in Ihe steamer l>ewitt Clinton: ihey will carry the best wishes of our citizens with them ; u is doubtful whether their places will be supplied by ! others fur some time to came. Lieut.

She is h fine , vessel, of about three hundred and fifty tons, to be , propelled by the old fashioned sidv- wheels instead of Hunter's submerged propellent as first intended; tht/y have been tried satisfactorily in the little stea mer "Alert," and proved a failure. Commandant Stephen Chamjtlin has received ordeis to take com mand of the hne steam tribute Michigan, on the lake ; it is n just tribute to Ins worth that Tie is again employed ; he was in Perry's victory, and severely wounded, the effects of which he never will re cover.

It is po- > sitively one of the funniest and most ludicrous sights, imaginable. Rosy morn sees assembled at the spring the youth, gaiety and fashion of both sexes.

" It must be that 1 have risen too early !" Down goes the dipper? tip comes the deli cious and refreshing beverage.

A gentle man informed us that he saw him at the well known Baden-Baden, in Germany, where he brought fifteen thousand "Napoleons" to bet with at Rouge et Noir ? he won, and in fact caused the bank to suspend for a time.? The Rev. John Maftitt is lecturing here by steam. His subject, a few nights since, was one which he probabl) understands, if he does anything. It was? "Woman as she is, and as she should be?

Last evening, Dumbolton's original band of kthiopean Serenaders gave a grand concert at the I liited States. The room was tilled to overflowing, and the company were delighted with the choruses*, refrain', &c. We were informed by one of tho clerks that it was the lar gest house this season. They give another concert here next week, which will undoubtedly be as woll attended. A rather funny thing happoued at Union Hall a few nights since. You are already aware that at this house they have prayers every evening at nine o'clock, whet the bell is loudly rung by the waiter. Well, Yankee Hill, whose nibicand lacc, bald head, white uockhand kerchief and jolly red nose, make him the very personi fication of a parson, was actually asked to preach by a reverend gentleman who had promised, but now said he had a previous engagement. The Yankee, however, thinking the mawworin style might not suit, declined tho honor. He has gained a little though, and is now called Brother Hill, by everybody. We understand that Kx-President Van Buren is ex pected on Monday to visit his old stamping ground, Sara toga, and marohall his forces for the coining campaign. Auoi-St 13, 184.V Under the influence of the magnificent entertainment ?f the Messrs. Putnam, I feel perfectly comfortable and at home. The gay season, properly speaking, has only just commenced. To be sure there have been crowds upon crowds of people here for the last six weeks, but a large proportion of them were the lame, the halt, the blind, or the demure and austere, who consider it wick ed to indulge in a hearty laugh. Now, the " upper ten thousand" are to be found congregated atCongressSpring every morning, and with them has come "forward and frolic, glee." At evening, tho parlors are enlivened by bright eyes and charming voices, sufficiently enchanting to make the most obdurate bachelor forget his vows of celibacy. The weather continues comfortably warm, and the hotel-keepers anticipate, or hope, the season will Inst till after the middle ol September. This, however, will de pend upon the temperature of the atmosphere. Mrs. Mowott and Mr. Crisp have played for two even ings past, before a small but select audience at Histrionic Hall.

The grounds in the vicinity were thronged with beauty, fashion, and betters Private carriages, stages, country wago?s and horses were scattered around, their inmates watch ing with interest the enclosure where they supposed the horses were kept, when behold, from behind the screen erected, was led a large sued ox, capari soned off to resemble a horse; a crimson netting, rosettes on the ears, bit, rnins, saddle, stirrups, and spurs. Then came the horse. Both were mounted by colored gentlemen in full uniform. Tne race commenced, purse #30, mile heats. The ox kepi ahead for lirst quarter of a mile ; the horse gamed tact upon him ; kept ahead two yards the next half When within four yards ot the stopping place the horse stumbled, and before he could be brought up the ox gained and went in ahead. The shouts were deafen ng. The ox has been trained to go under saddle or in harness. The ladies were very much excited, and several expressed a wish to " ride that sweet ox." The hotels are crowded.

The Delaware Exp>e?? contains the following statement ol a citizen who witnessed the murder of under Sheriff Steele, by men disguised as In dian* MR. WRIGHT'S STATEMENT. Understanding that numerous false report* have been and itili are industriously circulated by the anti-renters relating to the cold blooded and inhtunan butchery of our esteemed friend and fellow citizen, Osman N.Steele, un der Sheriff of our county, who died a martyr to our laws ! on the 7th instant, in the town of Andes, 1 have thought proper to publish the following statement of the circum stances attending the awful murder, having been the eye witness ot the whole transaction. On the fourth of June last, I wasonlled upon profession ally to draw a warrant of distress for John Allen, the agent of Charlotto I). Verplanck, to collect $64, the ar rears of rent due from Moses Karle on the premises oc cupied by him in the town of Andes. The levy was made and the sale had been postponed until the 7th ot August, at 1 o'clock. I went at the request of Mr. Allen from tills place, in company with Sheriff Moore, in a one horse wagon, ami arrived on the premises of Mr. Karle atiout Id o'clock in the forenoon. A number of specula tors had then assembled. Our first business was to see Mr. Karle, to whom we proposed a settlement of the rent: his reply was, " You will have to goon and sell, I shall fight it (it the hardest.'' Something was then said about Ins having written a letter to the Sheriff in regard to it. and he stated in substauce that he had since altered his mind and should make no settlement. We discovered from appearances, such as killing of sheep, fete., that pre parations had been made to meet us, and we apprehended tha1 there might be some difficulty. About 1 1 o'clock we observed a company of six I ndlans armed and in disguise cross the road from the north side above the house and pass through the pasture lot where the cattle were and enter the woods near where the cat tie were pasturing. 1 told the sheriff that he ought to command every spectator to assist in apprehending them, and he did so. In the course of fifteen or twenty minutes I observed another company of about as many more pass into the woods in the same direction. I observed nothing further until about 12 o'clock, when I discovered a party of lorty or fifty come from the woods on the east side of the pasture lot and pass in single file to the woods on the south side where tlie others nad congregated. At the same time 1 observed another company of 14 coming off the side hill on the north sido of the road and wern past ing in the direction of the others above mentioned. I went up the road about thirty or forty rods east of the house and came within three1 or four rods ofthemas they crossed the road and pawed a few rods in the pasture lot where they halted at the command of the chief, and and looking at me as 1 stood in the road, cried " tory," "tory " The chief then motioned with his hand in the direction of the others who were passing through the lot crying "Tory, Tory." The only remark 1 made to them was to ask them what they wanted of me. The 14 immediate I ly about faced ail I coming towards me re-crossed the road nearly in the same place. As they passed me I ob I served that several of them had their faces but imper I fectly disguised, and I pursued them 10 or 15 rods on the i north side of the road, endeavoring to ascertain w ho : they were; they passed up the hill and I left them and re turned again in the road In about } or j of an hour we observed the Indians coming out of the read on the South si'e of the pastute lot, and marching in single file they passed up near the hart Hhout Id or '20 rods east of the house on the souther ly side of the road, when they forme I in sections of toui each, and passing through the bars formed in single line in the road, the lower end reaching about line opposite Mr. Karle's house. 1 stationed myself at the bars, as they passed, and en deavored to count them. lu observing their disguise I lost the count, but should think from the estimate 1 then made, they were about one hundred strong all disguised and armed. 1 saw not one unarmed . mo*r had rifles; there were some muskets, and, in addition, several had small pistols; some tomahawks, bags of lea thers. &c., &e. I passed from the liars down ulong the line of Indians from lour to six feet in front, and on arriving at the centre of the liue 1 met one of the chief, who, rai sing his sword, told me to stand back twenty feet; I stop|>ed and maintained my position, told him I should not stand back one inch for him nor any of his tribe; he then plnccd his sword upon my breast, and again ordered me back; I instantly placed my hand upon my pistol, and told him to withdraw his sword from my person, or 1 would make a hole through him: lie then withdrew his sword and drew a pistol, fl then told him to violate my person again and 1 should defend myself to the list, against him and the whole of his tribe; that I should offer no insult or injury to any of them, but that they must let me alone; that 1 1 did not fear the whole of them ; that I came there on lawful business: that theirs was unlawful; they came to violate the law. and were all outlaws, and liuble to be punished in the State prison, every one of them; that they were not ignorant ol the fact, for they knew what the law was. This was said in a loud voice, so that all could hear, and they responded, ?' damn the law, we mean to break it." I told the chief that I knew him well, and that I should remember him ; be replied, "you can't swear to me." The Indians then a?ked me If I intended to bid upon the property; I told them 1 came there for that purpose, and that If I had an opportunity I should. 1 was then told that if I bid upon the property, I would "go home feet foremost in a wagon." To this one of the s])ectators said " that's the talk." A pail of whiskey w as brought from the house of .Mr. Karle, and was carried along the line, from which they drank. A horn was blown, and some accession was made to their ranks. 1 remained in the same position about half an hour, during which time I was blackgurded, snd my iife repeatedly threatened, to which I made very little or no reply. Officers Steele and Kdgerton then came in sight and rode up on horseback, tliij being about 1 o'clock. The Indiansthen marched forward against the stone wall on the north side of the road and about faced. The Sheriff then announced that he would proceed with the sale, and flint lie would go down and drivo up the pro perty, and proceeded with one or two citizens into the pasture lot for that purpose. After he had gone lo or 20 rods, the chief called tor 12 volunteers to accompany him to see that the property was not sold down in the lot, that ho might sell it down there and that they must prevent it. Tne property was driven by the Sheriff with some difficulty up near the bars, where the Indians pre vented him from driving the property in the road. The line of Indians by the stone waif then marched through the bars into the lot and formed a hollow square around the bars, enclosing the property and the Sheriff; Steele, Kdgerton and myself took our position by the burs, and Steele told me to stand between him and Kdgerton, and they would protect me. Considerable conversation then took place in regard to driving the property into the road. anti rent lecturer.wanted to know what right we had to drive the property into the road. I told him we had a right to sell it any where on the premises, and we wanted it iu the road for the convenience of the bidders. Something was then said about the notice of sale on the barn, when Steele and Kdgerton rode down to read it ; at this time 10 or 16 of the Indians run from the lot. and crossed the road on the North side, as if they wished to head them off, supposing they had started for home. Steele and Kdgerton returned to the bars, and the In dians again to the lot. I then called the Sheriff out of the lot. and told him that he might say to the Indians, that uiiless they would permit the property to be driven into the road, he might adjourn the sale. The Sheriff then went hack into the lot. saying, he thought he should be able to drive the property into the road, and was followed by Mr. Britban, about 1.1 feet from the bars, a little to the right, where they were surrounded by a number of Indians, and considerable conversation ensued with the Sheriff which I cannot now relate. In a few moments 1 uttempted to pass through the bars into the lot where the Sheriff was, and the platoon of Indians guarding the bars forbid my pnssage. an Indian raising his gun before me. Holding a cane iu my hand. I placed it with both hands against his breast, and forced a passage into the lot, the file of Indians at the bars closing in behind me. Steele and Kdgerton, apprehending my danger, then rode into the lot about two lengths of their horses. I maintained about the same posi'ion near the horses' heads. Tho file of Indians at the bars fell back, forming a semi circlo of fifteen or twenty feet radius, aroun<< Steele, Kdgerton and myself; the crowd around the Sheriff formed in the sane circle, and some came from the hollow square. The chief then gave the conim.iml, "shoot the horses," "shoot the horses," "shoot him, "hoot him:" the spectators nt the ban moved away at the motion of the Indians, and thirty or fort) rifles wore |>ointed towards us and we then supposed death w ns our portion. Steele and Kdgeiton then coin manded the peace, and Kdgerton in a loud voire called upon every citizen to assist hi preserving the peace, A volley ot rules was then fired upon us, and I saw in vtahtly the blood flow freely from the breu?t ot Kdger ton's hor?e upon my rigtt. and I should think Steele w is wounded in the arm nt 'his fire ; in the course of a vee\ few seconds, a second vc lley was discharged, which came like a shower both upon Steele and the horses, takinn effect in the body ol Steele, and also in brth horses Steele fell bleeding upon the ground, thice balls having pierced his hody.and others through his clothes Kdger ton's horse fell dead near Steele, another ball having pasted through thesadd e into his side. Sheriff Moore appealed to the Indians, " for God's sal-e to desist ; they had done enough Moore, Kdgerton, and myself lanand took hold of Steels, Bad aslitJ Inm how lie was wounded , he leplied that two balls had parsed through him, and that his bowels were all shot to pieces We carried him into the house of Mr. Karle, where he ^ survived between five ami six hours, enduring the moat excrutiating pain. He fire.l once, and once only and j that was alter lie was wouiided in his right arm. f.ilger ton drew his pistol but did not fire . mine was not drawn. I am sure the Indians 'fired first; there can be no doubt about it. Dr. Peake and Calhoun were called who ren dered every assistance in their power. While lying upon his bod In the agonies of death, Steele told Mr. Karle that if he had settled his rent ho would not have been shot; and Mr. Karle replied, "ho should not settle it if it cost forty lives." Mr. Stoele was on the ground only about half an hour before he waa shot, during which time tho Indians used towards him tho most abusive and insulting language, as well as threats upon hie life, to which he made not the least re ply, maintaining that cool temperament and presence of mind for which he was so much distinguished. The Indians remained upon the ground sone two or three hour*, holding an Indian pow-wow around the hor ses, and exulting in the blood of their victim. Thu? ha* fallen a faithful and fearless officer of the law, who died at the poit of duty, suffering martyrdom for no other rea son than he wa* faithful in executing the law* of hi* oountry. Tf.tcr P. Wbicht. Delhi, August 13, 1845. On Saturday evening, a posse of 18 or 20 started from Delhi to Roxbury, where they were joined by others. Sunday afternoon the posse returned, having succeeded in capturing three of the persons who are suspected of being engaged in the murder of Steele. Another posse left on Sunday afternoon, but returned on Monday with out effecting anything, having ascertained that the indi vidual for whom they were searching, had left with the intention of getting out of the State. On Monday afternoon, a posse which waa raised on the Kast Branch, came into Delhi with a prisoner which they had succeeded in capturing. A posse* of about 100 left Delhi on Monday moratng and had not returned on Tuesday afternoon. A small posse left on Monday evening, and another of about 50 on Tuesday afternoon, for differeat part* of the country. Attorney General Van Buren started from Albany Thursday evening, for Delaware county, to assist in the examination of the persons arrested on suspicion of : having been concerned in the murder of Sheriff Steele. W e understand some of the Anti-renters are circula ting the story that Steele, Kdgerton and Wright, either ope or all, had fired at the Indians before they (the Indi ans) fired at them, and some have stated that Steele shot himself. These stories are so preposterous and ridicu lous that we hardly deem them worthy of notice suffi cient to contradict them. Those who circulate the re ports do not believe them, but will endeavor to make others place confidence in what they say, in hopes to turn the disgrace aod odium from themselves. As an evidence of the feeling that is prevailing among the people we copy the following communication : To the editor of the Delaware Gatftle : You will please to give the following an insertion in the Gazette. I understand that there is a report in circulation that I stated on hearing of the death of O. N. Steele, deputy sheriff of our county, that I was glad that he was shot, and that if I had been there 1 would have shot him my self, even if he had been God Almighty. 1 pronounce the report to he untrue, and a bare-faced falsehood, and utterly void of any semblance of truth. But I did say ou hearing of the affair, that his death was much to be re gretteu and lamented; and that every good citizen ought to be vigilant in ferreting out the persons guilty of the ott'ence. that those concerned in his death might be brought to justice.
