i\ :vv~ YORK HERALD-! Ktw Yurli SUBiluy, Auguil 17, MM' but v ?m*oM Word of id* ler In tlic Kur of tJ)f Ailnal?!'*****0*** There is no doubt now l hat war will break out between Mexico and the United States, and the pro b ibility ii, that one of the first hostile movement* j on the part ot the former, will be the issuing of let- i ters of marque and reprisal, according to the intimu- j tions of Almonte, when in this country. That, in d-ed, is the only mode in which Mexico can make war against us with any degree of success. ShoulJ j these letters ot marque be issued, ten or twelve mil ' lions of American property, and the whole of the j American trading vessels in the Pacilic, would be at j the mercy ot the marauders who would thus be called into action ; our naval force 19 so widely dia ? "d, and would be so inefficient in defending our , ommerce in the Pacific, that a great deul ot serious loss would, 111 that case, be incurred This, then, is the only way 111 which Mexico can strike mi efl> ctive blow up:;tn.<i American interests All along 1 he Atlantic border we are perfectly se cured against any assault from that q-i irter, and no inva-ion of our territory could be attempted with the slightest chance of success. Mexico, it is also proper to recollect, has no money wherewith to organize and f-qui^ an active and serviceable mili tary force. Piratical assaults upon our unprotected commerce, and a guerilla waifareonthe frontier, will be the Utmost extent of the hostilities which Mexicoca- wage against us. Still, it is well to bear in min i that she is now, as i* announced in certain q 1 u ters likely to be well informed, endeavoring to obtain a lo in ot ten or twelve millions from France ani England, in order to enable her to carry on this w r. Now, in this crisis of affairs, what ought this country to do! What is the government a'joutl The President ought to call the new Con gress together at once. It is very true that he has aced with commendable promptitude in ordering troo[>s to the Texan frontier, and the War Depart ment has discovered an equally commendable de gree of judgment and alertness, in despatching, with all requisite speed, the best and most efficient troops to that post. But still something more re mains to be done, arid that immediately. Congress should be summoned together ? the annexation measure should be consummated ? he President ? should be empowered to net at once in every emergency that may arise? the eii>ht or ten mill.ons of surplus revenue, now in the hands of depositors, should be in readiness ? at d every necessary step taken in this great crisis. The very first hostile blow struck by Mexico will be the signal for a general uprising of the patriotism ot this country, and it is absolutely necessary, seeing that no one can tell when that decisive moment may occur, that Congress should be in Washington, so that the whole representative power and uuthonty of the nation can be exerted, to put an end. by one united Hnd decisive blow, to this war, if it do come. We must, besides, show the whole world, and jwrticularly England and France, that we have the means, under a republican form of government' of protecting our interests and punishing the aggres sor, on land and sea ? on the Atlantic or the Pacific ?on the Texan frontier, or any portion of our ex tended territory. Now, then, we repeat is the time for action. We call on the President and his Cabinet at once to awake to the necessity of immediate and decisive action. Let Congress be at once as sembled. Not one syllable can be uttered agaiust the wi-dom and duty of this step. Every thing speaks in its favor, it is very true, the organs of the de mocracy? ihey who affect to represent the mighty popular onward impulses of the republic, are dumb* or talk only in dubious and uncertain terms, no1 d inn? even to squeak, unless at the command of the wire-pulling demagogues. But, as an independent organ of public opinion, we tell the President and his Cabinet, that expediency, duty, patriotism, pru" dence, every consideration that ought to weigh upon ' their minds at this moment, admonish them to in stant, bold and energetic action, with reference to the presentconditionol our relations with Mexico. Again and again, we say, summon Congress without an other hours' delay. These are the words of truth and soberness. Let those whom they most con cern mark them well. Society at the ? Some very curious and amusing reflections do force themselves upon us as we study the state of society at the fash ionable watering-places. At Saratoga, the pulpit and the gaming table appear to monopolize everything Every day at dinner the highest dignitaries of the church are to be found sitting side by -ide, in plea sunt social commuion, with the gamblers ot Pork Row. A Catholic Bishop is helped to sauce or pota toes by a black-leg, and a pious father of the Pro. testant Episcopal church, addresses, in the blandes accents, a notorious faro-table keeper. "My dea: sir, allow me to help you to a piece of this chicken!' A pious deacon drinks wine wjth a pimp, and . sanctimonious Methodist parson leers, with a mosi ungodly expression, upon the pretty actress, whos< plate he is so assiduously providing with the goot things of this lite. What a curious picture ! Wha ;t su iject for a homily on the hypocrisies of tin? w.cked world ! Diplomatic ano Military Movements ? Th Ri tlu Honorable Richard Pakenham, 11. H M ' Minister at Washington, left this city yesterday foi Boston, accompanied by Mr. McTawsh, British Consul at Baltimore. Major General W. Scott, cornmunder of the lorces. accompanied by Ins Military Secretary, return e 1 to tiie city yesterday, from a tour of duty to Wesi Point, and remains at the American Hotel. Hoboke.n. ?

Grand Sailing Match at Nkwi-obt ? The New burgh, one ol the N< w York Yacht squadron, arriveo on Friday night from Newport, had a fin* run ol 19 hours. A very interesting race came oti on Thursday, between two of the the crack yachts, Mr. Winchester's yacht Northern Light, of Boston, and Mr. W.

Stkamkh Niagara ?The steamboat Niagara, t'ipf Degroot, resumes her regular trips to Albany and Troy this morning. She leaves Barclay street at 7 o'clock. Camp Mektiwc? The description* given bj* ot>i reporters of these singular assemblages are perfect ly faithful. Our tepciteis were instructed to give accurate views of what really occurred on the camp grounds, in order that the rest ot the world mmhf be ?ble to judge correctly and inipurtially ol the cha racter, objects and tendencies of the* meetings. ? These descriptions are, we lind, precisely similar to that graphic and eminently effective picture which j Burns ins given in itis " Holy Fair." None of our ; readers who recollect the description, will quarrel with us for recalling some portions ol it to their memory, and those who have not before read the jioein, will be, we hope, duly grateful.

Possibly, in some rare instances, these'camp meet- 1 ings may be the means of awakening religious feel- j tngs th? tinny produce " fruits meet for repentance." But we are perfectly satisfied, from our knowledge of the manner in which they are conducted in this neigh borhood, and indeed in all parts of the country, that they lead, in general, to any results except purity of thought and propriety of conduct. Fven in those cases where serious convictions of the necessity o? leading a virtuous lite may be excited, there is too much reason to believe that the elfect is very trari s tory, and that the arrested sinner becomes, to use the jargon of the camp preachers, ten-fold more the child of hell than ever. We confess that we have been not a little astonished in finding the Me 'hodists, one of the most respectable and numerous religious bodies in the country, numbering probably iwo or three millions, encouraging these miscella neous assemblages, patronizing such profane and ildsphcmous worship, and sanctioning such grossly ndecent scenes as too frequently disgrace these ?ccasions. Here we have large multitudes of both -exes herding together, for days and nights, in :he wild and secluded forest, and every license and ?pportunity given to the violent passions of the hu man heart. What a mockery ? what a blasphemous profanation of all that is sacred and pure and hol? ? to call this on assemblage of seekers a'ter the truths of chnsti inity! Rather let such scenes bee tiled a revival of the obscene rites of Venm and ol Pan ? A id yet these are the scenes over which respectable clergymen of the Methodist church ? Doctors in Divinity, s*ve the mark? are found willing to pte ?ide! This flight of Christianity into the wilderness and th- forest is all a mockery and delusion and shame. Religion, in our day and in this christian land, needs n >t to seek the solitudes of the desert, nor to thread t le mazes of the forest, in order to find a placc to worship God. All over the land, in city, town and village, and hamlet, and retired valley, are to be found the temples of the true God. There, in sob> r ues?, and decency, and sincerity of soul, let men worship. No longer miy we see the humiliating and -< id spectacle of respectable churches, or resj>ectab!o clergymen, sanctioning these camp meetings ? con gregations of, insanity, impurity and ice, where the fallen angels hover around the tents, md the devil reaps a full harvest of deceived and .-srrupted human souls.

Extensive Kirk. ? A fiio broke out yesterdaymorning, at :t o'clock, in a building in Hammond street, a few door above West street, occupied as a steam laundry. miirl1'" linseed oil cake manufactory, and machine shop. It is supposed that the fire originated in the engine room of the laundry, which was in tho lower part of the building. The flames soon reached the rooms occupied bv Messrs. Prouty Ik Danforth as washing an^ ir?"1D.f rooms, and these being filled with clothing, the v. hole building was soon wrapped in flames. 1 hv file then caught in a frame buil.lmg adjoining, the low cr part ?! wliichwas occupied by .Mr Joseph Howell as a black smithing and machine shop. This building wsssoon consumed. Adjoining the laundrv was a small she. which was used for wishing, and which was bui t against the large brick building in West street, owned and oc cupied by Mr. Enoch Moigau us a soap and caudle lacto ry. By means of this shed the flames wero communica Ud to Mr. Morgan's building, which, being failed with oil. candles and soap, soon sent forth dense smoke an. llame, and in two hours was entirely consumed, nothing being lelt but part of the walls. At one time the desti rue tion of the dwellings on the opposite sideofHainmoud at w as threatened hut they were saved by the arduous ex ertions or the tire companies. Mr Prouty, one ol t-e proprietors of tiie laundry, was sleeping in the ironing room at the timo the fire occurred, and was awaken*, by a faithful dog, and had just time to escape, which he .11 1 without saving any of hn clothing. The buildings on Hammond street were owned by Mr William Chauncey, and we understand that there was 110 insurance upon them. Me- sis. Prouty and Uantort. wore insured in the Croton Insurance Company loi $3000, their loss being *3000.

Trip to Chicago ? Buck to Buffalo ? Buffalo Hotels, iVewt piper*, and ? urines* I left Buffalo some four weeks since, on board ol the steamboat Indiana, bound tor Toledo, touching at the various ports along shore. I purposed to go from there by land to Detroit by die way of Monroe, and to t ike the magnificent Empire around the Peninsula to Chicago, anil so overland to St. Louis. But my ill star was in the ascendant. I was com pelled to remain in Toledo over night, and the abom inable ague got hold of me, aud I was glad to hasten back after reaching Chicago. I advise travellers to beware how they gel caught in the Mautnee in the hot season. As we came up, 1 fancy that I saw the ague spirit, long, lean, lank, and yellow, dancing upon the waters of the nver, ready to pounce upon Ins devoted victims. But as great Ceasardid with the ague Bhake, while in Spain, so did I soon after I came upon Lake St. Clair But to return. The tirst place we made after leav ing Buffalo, was Erie. Pa , known by the xobriyuel of the Sleepy Borough. This is a beautiful town afier you rise the full, and since the opening of the Erie Extension Canal, lis business has been quite active. Large quantities of coal are brought here from the interior to be shipped for the eastern mar kets. Lumber and staves, too, are among the lm poriant articles of the lake commerce, from this port There is one magnificent and extensive hotel here, ill" " Heed llour-e," owned by Col. C M. Reed, the I he former representative in Congress from this dis trict. Passing along up the lake we saw several small towns, Connuuut, Ashtabula, Fair|>ort, and whenar rived at Cleveland, we found quite a city-like look ing place. There is a vast amount of business don? liere, it being the outlet of a rich farming countn through which extends the Ohio Canul lor three hundred and tune miles. We made hurried calls at several places? Vermil lion, Huron, Milan, un active, busy place, famoui for being :i great wheat market; Sandusky City, which is destined to he a place of no little impor tance, when the Lake Erio and Mad River Railroad shall be completed to Cincinnati It will be the lak< port for nearly all the travel across from the laki zountr} to the south. The railroad is now comple ed to Tiffin, about 35 miles in the interior The next place we made was Toledo. The loca ion of this place, at the mouth of the Maumee Bay. md the termination, in effect, of the Lake Erie anc' WabashCanal, with which the Miami extension from Cincinnati connects; a great trade will grow up her* in the course of a few years, if no untoward evem transpires to prevent it Perrysbuigh and Maiune. City, above are rivals of Toledo, and much shipping is owned at each of these ports. I saw in the store [louses and upon the docks, large quantities of nn r uhutidise marked for Cincinnati, Nashville, Louis ville, St Louis, and other places in the south anu south-west, winch had been sent from New York. I left Toladoand proceeded by land, about thirt) 1 miles, to Monroe, Mich. This' citv is beautifullv 1 located upon the banks of the River Raiain? famour lor Winchester's defeat, and the massacre, during 1 the last war. J t has a population of about 3,500 inha bitants, 1 should judi^e, and is a place of an active business. The southern railroad, belonging to (h> State, which is completed und in operation to Hills dale, about fifty nules inland, terminates here. ? There are extensive flouring mills on the river, the one belonging to Messrs. BurchiV- Co., cajmble ol manufacturing about 250 barrels of flour per day.? Should any of your readers, or yourself, penetrate as far into the w st as this, I would advise you to put up " no where else" except at Kellogg's Exchange, where every tiling is contnie il faut. From Monroe, I made another land voyage to De troit, through a not very inviting country, along the lake anu river shore. Detroit is such un old place, that every body is acquainted with its locality and characteristics so well known, that I will say no thing upon that point. Every body here has the copper-phobia; you hear nothing but copper, copper, from morning's dawn until evening's sun, among all ranks, colors, sorts and sizes It is astonishing to witness the excitementwhich has been got up on thi* subject. Companies are conttantly 'forming and ex ploring agents sent out to locate a spot whereon to nitrate. There will be a fall ? a crash ? a tremen dous crushing explosion, ere long, or I am no pro phet. We started oil" upon the steamboat Empire, the leviathan of the Lukes. But after we had got up in to Lake St. Clair, the villainous ague did shakti me like an individual earthquake, and 1 did riot leave the boat until she ugaiti touched the wharves in Buf falo, where 1 now am. I shall not give it up so, and you shall hear of me on the prairies of the West, and of the deeds which I have done amongst the wild game, in those regions abounding. I must fill up or scratch off a part ot my heading. Buffalo may indeed boast ol her hotels ; she hao four magnificent ones ? the American, the Westeai. the Mansion, and the new Commercial. In out ward appearance and internal arrangements, ihe_\ are ull hard to beat. Aud as I saw the llcruld re gularly in each, 1 judge that the landlords show ? good taste in all things. As to the newspapers there are three dailies pub lished here ? the old Commercial, the organ ot the whig party, edited by Dr Foote, whom every bod) dislikes? a (>ornpus personage, full of pretention, bin who, with the aid of two or three assistants, contrives to make a very good paper. He denounces ? he Herald, which is enough to make hint unpopu lar with all seekers for truth. Next comes the Courier, the par excellence organ of the democracy, edited by J. Siringham, Esq. It is barely tolerated in this community, no one taking it but partisans, who dare not do otherwise. The third is the Na tional Pilot, itl recent origin, edited hy James O Kraytnsin, Esq ,who makes a lively, interesting and > >|iular paper. Professor Hawkins, a heavy mill ions and pedantic writer, is engaged as assistant, principally in abusing the English and the Herald . md lauding the French Being himself unpopular, lie paper has to carry him nlorig .is an extra weight The fall business is reviving ? Produce begins to rnve from the West in considerable quantities Flour is selling to-day at $3 50 and $3 56 for all w>d Western common brands. Wheat now brings 7.3; Mfts Pork ?12 50 and ?'13.

IloritKsrrR, Atitf. 10, 1845 Another Account of tin Appointment of Poitm-inttr ? The Excitement. Locofoism in this rity, two weeks ago, wa.? thrown into convulsions, nnd convulsions too, ac cording to ihe opinion of r celebrated Professor o Geneva College, likely to produce death or paraly sis. On the 21st of last month, the President, iifie r careful investigation into the tiieri's and pretensions of the several candidates for Post Officer here, awarded the prize to Henry Campbell, Esq. lie is a man of respectability, oil lair business qualifica tions, and a thorough going barn-burner, who ban -pent mucli time and money in advancing the in (i-reMt of his party. As he was a man, tiowever, ex tremely unpopular with the old Van Bureu faction, uis success waa never dreampt of, nor itv idea of it allowed to disturb the calculation'' of the oilier ab .?iratitf?, amoni' whom there was an interesting struggle. The Lieutenant Governor was written to .n Ihe subject, by ihe Hon. Cave, but he disdained o meddle in the matter, or lacked pos-ibly, eotir , ? , (I., so, and seeing he has anoth-r step to gain in mate honors, he might think his interference would >e looked ii|N>n as invidious On all occasions, lierefore, h* shuns the responsibility? it is a habit lie lasgot. The profit of it, lie will yet have time, in he otiunmm ili%nitnta, which awaits him, to reck t,n up at his leisure. Hut this is a digreaaion The local diligences of opinion in regard to the most prominent en rid i lates being so greut, and the clash of the strife so loisy, as carried on by their several adherents. Mr I'olk, it apjiears. in overlooking the ground from a distance, thought it hot to give the office to Ihe mail who did not awaken so intense* local strug gle. This man was Mr. Campbell, and he whs widely and highly recommended from every sec lion of the State. No one could be more so. ? What better decision then could the President have come too, in view of all the circumstances! None ! Aud vet a few spluttering, noisy, disappointed poli ticians threaten bloody murder, and mosacre, be c ?use they Hud their influence at Washington was not as great as their heated vanity fancied it. This is all ? " nothing more my Lord, you may rely on't." The wh?le fight was a lair stand up one. The vic tor gained the field without even stratagem. The pe culiar friends ot each candidate ? aye, those who now bluster the most, ussured the President and Post master (General that each aud all of the candidates were honorable men and capable ; but their own pet the most so. Now, however, so blind are men in the madness of pussion, they accuse Campbell ot being a perfect Don Juan, and at the same tune as stupid as a donkey. They have had the audacity to try to frighten the Cabinet ? make them write themselves down asses of their own calibre by reversing the appointment. But it is no go ? it is understood, nei ther the President nor the Hon. Cave will thus stul tify themselves at the behest of a few disappoint ed men, whose political influence, at best, is pro bably not worth a pmoh ol anufl'. Fkanrford, Philadelphia Co., Aug 12, 1W5.

A ride of five miles east from the ci y of Philadel phia, brought us to its southern boundary the " Ta oony," a navigable stream, which intersects the river Delaware some two miles to the south east.? Over this two stone bridges are built, one with a span ut seven, and the other with three arches; here you enter the town ot Frank ford at its foot, as 1 was fold >y the "cab-man," butl thought it would have been more appropriate to have called it the head, for im mediately on and around this part of the stream, th^ manufacturing, in all its varied branches, is carried un? calico printing, bleaching, dying, spinning aud weaving, turning, casting, chemical works, ancf flour mills, Arc. After crossing this streum, you follow its winding course a short distance below; it is pursuing us way, as it comes tumbling down a fill in sight;1 ?vhile upon the other hand, winds an artificial water uourse, leading to a flour mill, bleaching and dying establishment, owned by Col. Dultield ' Here our lirection led us from the main street, the pointer noard informing us that the street we were now in look us name from the stream, aud upon which is ?rected one of the largest and handsomest buildings in this part of the State; it is four stories hign, built uf stone aud rough cast, and reflects the highest credit on the projector, Mr. Brigs. The town is situate un a rising ground, a stream of pure spring water branching oft' oil either side, giving great facilities to the manufacturer. The number of inhabitants in 1840 was two thousand three hundred and sixty live ; foi" this information I am indebted to an ordi nance book compiled for the use of its citizet,IB> Since which, 1 have understood that at this time it' is nioie tlun double that number. Owing totho great increase of foreigners, mostly English, there are in this town eight houses of public Worship, Presbyte rian, Episcopalian, Methodist, Baptist, Sweedenbor iian, German Reform, Hicksite Friends, Orthodox Friends ; also a large public school-house, three lire-engine companies, one insurance company, a Lyceum Hall, m irket-house, post-olfice, six hoiels, and a printing-office, where is issued weekly u little sheet, called the " Herald ." One mile east of Frankford on the river Delaware is the beautiful village of Bridesburg, where the steamboats make excursions front Philadelphia It contains many handsome dwellings, a neat little church, and school-house. 1 passed a Sabbath there, attended worship, was much pleased with the S|ieaker, a Rev.
