Yesterday, being one of the periodical occasions ipon which the members of this Club assemble at :he Institute, in the Park, for the discussion of co ntend, as well as stipulated topics, connected with he promotion of agriculture ? the meeting was or ganized by the appointment of Dr. Underbill as chairman, and Mr. Meigs as secretary. The reading of the minutes of the last meeting being dispensed with, the Club was opened for tho discussion of the hour ot any miscellaneous matter that came within its province ? when a communica tion was read from Mr. J. Van Wiske to A. B. Allen, accompanied by various specimens ol marl,' produced from the pit of the former gentleman, on his farm at New Hamburgh, Dutchess county. The j specific combinations of each species excited an in teresting discussion, aa to the merits of the compo nent parts ? their application to various soils ? and their virtues in promoting the diversified objects of agriculture. Here, the various component proper ties of marl and the method of testing the general combination of potash, soda, decomposed shells, &c., were argued, each advocate claiming a prefer ence to tliat best adapted to the deficiency of the soil that that substance'was calculated to improve or renovate. Dr. Kif.lh entered into his favorite theories, with regard to the eflicacy ot muck, as exemplified upon his farm, and recapitulated the process by which his general crops have, through that medium of cultiva tion, exceeded, in quality and quantity, those of his neighbors. The absorption of the anionia might be promoted by the application of the use ol the mate rials si tile lien roost. Col. Clarice was of opinion that marls were dis tinctly suited to distinct soils. One member sug gested experiments, upon a small scale, upon differ ent portions of a farm; while another advocated a chemical analysis ? the latter, as too expensive and slow, was repudiated, and the former system pro nounced more positive and effectual. The chair man suggested several valuable processes, by which alluvia ? swamp muck ? and marl combined, could be rendered serviceable to every soil, by the admix ture of lime and vegetable alluvia. Mr. McDonald, of Alabama, was introduced at this point to the members. This gentleman is an agriculturist and planter. lie carefully examined the specimens of marl upon the table, and saw no thing in their appearance like the blue marl. His plan of using the marl, was placing it in a lot, and allowing the cattle to tread upon it. Gov. Hammond failed in his experiments, by spreading the mail broadcast. He drew out 10,000 bushels, mixed it with pine strata, and upon thirty acres obtained an unusual crop. A communication was received from Emanuel Russell, upon the advantages of planting French willows, as more flexible and lighter in manufac ture, than those of this ceuntry. He recommended the plants, or sli|?, of 14 to Mi inches in length, with 6 inches in the earth ? to be planted in broad ditch es. from two and a half to three feet apart. The hour of miscellaneous conversation being exhausted, the legitimate subject was introduced. " Insects aiul their Destructive Effects." The Chairman wished to correct an error which hud been attributed to him, of the influence of the Hessian fly, and wheat worm, which he desired to remove, by conlining his remarks to the "winter wheat" only. After describingthe havoc produced in almost every vegetable by these nuisances, and im pediments to free existence and their destructive at tributes, he recommended the ploughing ot the soil iu the spring as the best means of obviating the future progress of these and the canker worm. The blight in quinces and pears may in the same way be resisted; ne recommended the ploughing lute, in the fall, when the insects are dormant, and liable to be finally inuiiimaied by frost? perhaps when grasshop pers are abundant, a drove of turkeys amongst them would be the best army of annihilation. Col. Clarke produced a most venomous and de structive miunalcula with four wings and a sting, that piercing any tree's bark would did use poison through the entire peach plant; chloride of liine and other processes were suggested, but none with any positive certainty. Professor Mapes wished the subject to be defer red until Mr. Halsey could uttend. In the mean time he suggested the experiment of 1'lanlemon, of boring a hole in the tree and plugging it with salt. The President observed that brimstone had been used in that way with success, but he apprehended danger from rotting by perforation. Professor Mapes contended that no salt infusion could be dangerous if it was derived from iron or conper. Several very valuable topics of information and instruction were suggested by Professor Mapes uj>on subjects though not directly combined with the par ticular objects of the o icasion, but were calculated to enlarge the scope of futuie investigation and promote indirectly the purposes of the club ? amongst others, he proposed the cultivation of to bacco, as a fit subject tor the next meeting; but a piudent desire on the part of the members, to adapt their subjects to the seasonable requirements of the f irmers, induced them to substitute the proposed more important topic, " The best method ot pre paring ground for the reception of fall wheat." Mr. McDonald produced a specimen of cotton, raised last year upon his own plantation, in Alabama, which, for virgin purity ol whiteness and flexibility of texture, he announced us commanding three cents above the common staple. The Georgetown College. James (Jokdo.n Benkett, fclstj . In your Herald ot Tuesday, you have very gener ously offered your columns to tlie Jesuits, or their triends, for the purpose of refuting the numerous calumnious reports that have been circulating con cerning them during the last ten or twelve days. \Ve dtller from you in your opinion, that those re ports have been of buch a character as to demand a public refutation. We have considered that they bore with themselves an ample contradiction in the bungling, ridiculous manner tn,wiiicli they have been circulated. One correspondent would lead us to im agine that the whole Jesuiticul body was under the ' immediate control and supervision of the Pope, whereas, His Holiness very rarely, if ever, inter feres with the internal arrangement, or conduct of the order. Again, we are informed by one of those wiseacres, that Mr.Verhagen, the present Provincial at t leorgetown, was sent over to this country some ten or twelve years ago, to establish an espionage, (which lie lias ever since maintained,) from hid residence at St. I.ouis, over his bretlnen at Georgetown. If Lord ltoa?"K telcscope had been in existence all thiit time, we should be firmly impressed that it was the associate of his vigi lance. Some people liavo a natural tendency to bo crotchetty, and wo believe the corps reportorial, at Wu hington, has the crotchet ot Anti-Jesuitism as firmly planted in their brains, as ever did the lieio of the fairy tale have the sleeping pin in hi* eye. Wo refer to that portion of thorn pn: ticulrrly, whose names do not figure on the lilt of invitationi to the pleasant col lege celebrations, ex. gr. the correspondent of the F.s /irrst last week, on the subject of tho Revolution in the Collcgo. We give, as a reply to these numerous reports, tho information we have de lived from one of the gentle men connected with the College. There aie to be in all

throe changes in the officers of the College, that is among those in any responsible situation. This was the determi nation at tho time these leports commenced, and we be lieve since, and there is every probability that so it will remain. Among the teachers and minor officer! of the college, there may be such changes as take place every >ear, but nothing further. In fact there has been no more ground to excite those reports than occurs every yeai previous to the re-opening of the schools. It is true we have understood theie is to tie a change iu the Presidency, but we iittiibute it to the fact that Mr. Mill ledy's appointment aboutjsix months since , on the depar tuie of Mr. Ilyder, was only a temporary one, to termi nate when Mr. Mclilroy, tho present appointee, should bo leliaved from his iuties ut (?redeiick, Md. As to tho charactor of the new President, we believe, if ever a man were calculated to make hhnselt esteemed and revered by a community, Mr Mclllroy is that man Ho has presided over a liteiary institution iu Kredorick fur a number of years, where he has enlisted the respect and affection of nil who knew him. We. therefore, deny, on the authority of those gentle men we have alluded to, that there is any Just foundation ' for the calumnies which our dlnnerless reporters havo J been so studiously circulating. We would ask those i gentlemen to apply at tho next College Celebration for a seat at tho table, aud wo have no doubt the good fathers there tfill give thein every kindness in their power, if only to save them the stain upon their consciences which 1 the circulation ot such falsehood* effects. We might pro- > cerd and give our own opinions which we have formed in this subject, and which, we think, are correct conclu sions, deduced from facts, with which we are acquainted, did we not suppose that the above simple denial upon such (authority , is abundantly sufficient for tho present purpose.

I asked two or three persons, in order to ascertain public feeling in relation to this business, whether they feared an attack bv the unti renters, at any time, on the town 1 The reply was, that they did not, in the slightest degree, fear it, as every one had showed himself ready to turn out;? even those who were known to be tainted with anti-rentism, were as ready to do so as anv one else, from the moment the news arrived of the Deputy She! ill. Steel, being sliol. Several meetings have b<*en held over the country for the purpose of expressing an opinion on that la mentable occurrence. At all of them, as far as I can learn, there was a very deep and strong depre cation of that act, and the most earnest call made upon the Slate authorities to interfere, at once and elivctually, with promises, on the part of these as semblies, to co-operate, as far as their respective ability would permit, in bringing to condign punish ment the perpetrator* of these crimen. I must say, that, whatever be the depth of the |>eople's grief tor the victim of the late outrage, Mr. Steel, it does not show itself to half the extent I would exi>eet, or ac counts would warrant one to look for. I do not wish, nor do I mean, to hint, that there is not a very correct and pro|>er feeling prevalent among his sur viving acquaintances ; but it is characteristic of the cold, and mentally restrained race who people this country, that but one week afler a respectable hiu! respected public officer, a good neighbor and cour teous citiZ' n, has been left in his grave? murdered in the assertion of principle, ana in a cause, for whose : uccess all ure interested here, or profess to be so ? there is not a word of allusion to his name, not a breath of sympathy for the widow, not a vow of vengeance on tlie heads of the wretches who made 11 widow and orphans of Mrs. Steel and chil dren.

' Letter from Itotx-rt Owen. London, July 23, I arrived in this country, after a pleasant voyage ot only Hi days trorn Boston to Liverpool, and found the imputation in a hifjh railway fever, wliich con tinues without any apparent abatement, and no one here dreams seriously of war between two nations who could materially injure each other by hostili ties, without a chance of benefit to either, while war between thern would retard the progress of civiliza tion to an incalculable extent. The wise men of both countries must interfere to keep them at peace, 1 for unitedly they may now insure the peace of the world and its continually growing prosperity. The T'nited States, through its more free institu tions, will take the lead in great national and uni versal improvements, while Europe and other parts of the world will be necessitated to follosv its exam ple. I mean to open the way for a great advance to be j speedilv ma<!e,by the Convention which i announced in tlic Herald upon my departure from New York You may, perhaps, recollect that it is called to commence the 1st October, and T hope to arrive pro bably by the Victoria, Captain Morgan, about the 20th September, if 1 do take a steamer to enable mc to arrive earlier. f Ins convention, I hope, will be composed of leading minds, male and lemale, without regard to class, wet or party, and from every State and Ter ritory in the Union, for the time has arrived when extraordinary benolits may be secured for every in dividual, ot every description, within the circle to which the constitution of the United States, inclu ding Texas, may extend. All the materials are ready and the public mind is fast ripening to apply them with prudence and wis dom, to constitute a new state of things, without vi- I olence or disorder, in which ignorance, tor want of education, wealth tor want of industry, divisions for want of real chanty, injustice and unkindness will be unknown. You may materially aid in bringing about this most desirable change. Let the conven tion and its object be made as well known as the Herald is capable of effecting in its own peculiar way, and there will be no|fear of' its ultimate success, and of great practical success at no very distant day. Why should there be longer ignorance, poverty, disunion and inferior circumstances in any of the States or Territories of the Union, when the means of prevention are so abundant and now may be so easily applied 1 Yours, my dear sir, very sincerely, Robert Owbn.

Falatine Plains, Okkuon, > Nov. 4, 1844. $ * * * * The emigrants are now daily arriving, and will all be here in a few weeks at farthest, and I expect to receive other letters and papers, which 1 am informed are on the way. 1 have now an oppor tunity to write a hasty letter, as one of H. B. Co's ships, the Columbia, leaves Vancouver in a few days for the Sandw ich Islands. Our country is most beautiful, fertile and "well watered, with the most equable and pleasant climate Our population is rapidly increasing, and the country is making great progress in wealth and refinement I have never yet before seen a population so in dustrious, sot>er and honest as this. 1 know many, very many young men, who were the veriest vaga bonds in the .State?, who are here respectable and doing exceedingly well. Our crops the past year (1844) have been most bountiful, and we have not only a full suppjySof wheat for our consumption, but a large quantity for exportation Large numbers ot cattle are raised here, which are never fed or sheltered. Many men have from three to four hun dred head of cattle. Sheep can be had here in any desirable number, as the H. 1?. Company have a large Hock, and many private individuals have them l'ife this reaches you, perhaps you will have learn ed that we have a regular government in most suc cessful operation in Oregon. When I first reached this region, about a year ago, 1 thought any attempt at organization might be premature. I had not, however, been here long, before it was conceived that a govertncnt of some kind was inevitable. It grew out of stern, invincible necessity. Our com mercial and business transactions were considerable. Difficulties were dailyoccurring between individuals in relation to their " claims," the est4tes of deceased [lersons were daily devoured, and helpless orphans plundered ; crimes were committed, and the ba.-e and unprincipled, the reckless and turbulent, were hourly trampling upon the rights of the honest am! (leaceable. A civilized population, numerous as w? were, could not exist without gnvernment Th hing was impossible. We, therefore, organized i government ul our own. We had no money, no means ? I was a member nf <he Legislature. 1 find most of the business to do We passed a tax bill, appointed an assessor, and per muted every man not to pay a tax, it lie chose so to do, but if he did not pay, being able, we debarred ,lnm from suing in the courts as plain till'. At the same time we passed acts to protect all bona tide -'?tilers in thfirclaims to the amount of (>10 acres. | The tax bill operated like a charm. Neatly all the whole population paid without hesitation. We selected a tall East Tenneasean, Joseph L. Meek, for our sherirt. He had been in the niouiituns with Wm. L. Sublette for eight, or ten years, is exceed ingly good humored, very popular and as brave ai Julius Cesar. The very tirst warrant he had de livered to him, was issued for the apprehension of a very quarrelsome and turbulent man, who resisted Meek with a broad-axe, but Meek, presenting a cocked pistol, took the fellow, no/ens volens. The next, and only case of serious resistance to our laws, was on the part of Joel Tnrnham, of Mo., son ei | May Turnham, of Clay County. He had assaulted an individual, and a warrant was issued by n justice of the peace. Turnham was himself constable, and John Edmonds was deputized to arrest him. Turn ham resisted with a large butcher's knife; but Ed rnonds had a pistol with six barrels well charged ? He shot Turnham four lime ?, the last ball entering above the temple, when he immediately expired These nreall the obstructions to the administration of justice we have had, and in Edmond's case, he was fully justifiable in killing Turnham, even it he had no warrant, as T. assaulted him tirst, and pursued him wiili great violence to the last. We have now five counties, and two terms of the circuit court in each county in every year. We have but'.one iuoge, who discharges the duties of probate .judge, chancellor, and what not : in fact we have only ns yet circuit courts and justices of the peace. ? Our government was intended only as provisional, to exist until some regul ir government could be established. We adopted the statute laws of Iowa, wh- re applicable to our condition and not modified by our Legislature. We are now waiting most anxiously for the result of l'akenham's mission, and if the two governments have not settled the question between them, the moment that fact is known, there will be one univer sal movement made. A regular convention will be held and a constitution adopted (republican no doubt,) and tin independent government put in oi>e- , ration at once. Necessity will com|>el us to the step. The imputation of this country are no doubt ! desirous to live under the government of the I nited ' States, but if she will never do anything for us, we j must and will do it for ourselves. The |>eople here j are worn out by delay, and tlieir condition becomes | every day more intolerable. 1 sj>eak to you with : great enndor, for you know me, and know that I | withhold nothing and disg* i-te nothing. We are well satisfied that the I N. Government as well as Great lirit.'.in i ould not object, and would not object, if we form an independent government for ourselves, ! situated us we are. Treaties must be made with j the Indians, and many other things of ini|>ortance must of necessity be done. Our population about doubles every year, and our business trebles. IWi will soon have a printing press, and a paper of our own ; we can then publish our I laws. The prnciire of the law has commenced, and I have several important suits on hand. I have a tine "claim," perhaps among the best in Oregon, situated in the centreof one of those tuo.-t beautiful prairies called the Palatine Plains T am in excellent health, contented and happy.

The Delaware Outrage ?, August 15th, 1843 ? Farther and Important Arre*ts an f Uii cloturri. ? Nothing of consequence ha* transpired here since Wednesday, until thin morning Mr. McKennan, of Mason ville, captured three more men yesterday, who | were on their way to Pennsylvania. I'hey had previ ously been orrested in the town of Tonopunii and dis charged tor want of evidence to detain them. Mr. Mc Kennan did liot like their appearance and conduct, anil so told them they must come along with bim. They as sented, and before they had come three miles, they be gan to make disclosures. It seems from these disclosure that one of them, ! Northrop, was one of the principal chief*, anil had sixty I three men disguised and armed under his command, on ? the day Steele was shot. Ho says Warren W. Sc.uddei , of Roxbury, (the man for whose apprehension the Sheri/1 lias ottered i* reward of $300) was tho comnrmuder-in i chief on that day, and the man who presented his sword I lo Shei ill' Wright's breast, when W. was walking in '? front of the Indian line. ; The number of Indians in the lie 1.1 on that day he | states at j'20. and tho number stationed in tho woods, to out off the horses of the posse, 8tJ0--all armed. It is ascertained also who it was that wanted out the Indians on the 29th of July, the day first set down for the *alo.

Karll, to prevent the sale of his property ? and that they went to Karll'* house, alter the sheriffhad left, and tlmt Karll told them the sale was adjourned to August Tth. This man (Northrop) is very penitent -says he expect* to lose his life, but that lie shall tell all ? and he has dis closed more important facts than any one who has yet testified.
