For the past few weeks the heat has been here most inaupixjrtable, the mercury in the shade reach ing to 108 deg. (Far't) and in the sun as high as 144. Think of that, ye salamanders, and say whether you could live in such a latitude 1 Yet not withstanding this elevation of our pyrometers, the season, though much advanced, has been entirely healthy; not a fatal case of disease in the city or vicinity, and but few cases of any kind whatever. This is something unusual in this fact, and the cre dulity of i>ersons at u distance will no doubt be ?e verely tested, when this report is brought into co 1 j lision with the former insalubrity and mortality which has alllicted this beautiful city. One promt nent cause for this improvement in the health of the place is found in the great change in the habits and morals of her people. A tew years since Tallahas- , see was the scene of everything repulsive to law. i good order, decency, virtue and morality, but now. how great the change ! Its inhabitants are saved from the sins and evils which hitherto polluted them?and there is no city in America where more good order and decency prevail?and no people that have more respect for, and are more obedient to the laws of their city and State than are this pop ulation. En passant, speaking of State, brings me to the fact that Florida has emerged from her territorial vassalage, and is now in the full Hood tide of suc cessful 8iate government She has adopted her constitution, elected her officers, organised herself, and has taken her position amongst the other States 1 of this great confederacy. In tne election of her i officers, she has been both fortunate and unfortu- i nate, and although this o|?eration may seem para doxical, it is nevertheless true. Fortunate in the election of her Governor, who is a patriot, a states man and philosopher?Wm. D Mosely, a gentle man ot the old school of the democratic party, a college mate of James K. Polk, urbane, honest and gentlemanly, full ot candor, without a speck of so phistry, a friend to the people and the constitution ; he is a North Carolinian, and stood high in the af fections of the oeople of that good old 8tate before his emigration nere lie has now received his re ward Let him go on, his destiny is written?"sic iter sul oslra." In the election of her other officers (I mean State olficers), she has honored a parcel of neophytes,men without tame, experience or reading, of whom we are unable to say anything, cither pro or contra, as we know nothing of them?negative characters. 1 would give their names, but we presume this would be uninteresting to the public, as they are entirely unknown beyond the confines of Florida. I speak of those who are State officers. The judicial offi cers are men of high character, and are good ap pointments; but in the appointments generally made bvthe last Legislature, more regard was paid to po litical considerations thanactual merit?an unfortu nate thing lor a young State in her swaddling clothes, hut w'e hope for better things as she becomes older. Florida, by her admission, becomes entitled to two Senators. She has elected two i>ersoos to that trust, of whom 1 will give you a small history.? First is David Levy, our late delegate, and our re cently elected member" ot Congress, but who re signed when he ascertained (although he had only p.uised his election to the House of Representatives of tlieUntted States one month,) that abetter school for his eminence was within his reach, videlicit die Senate of the United States. Mr. Levy is an industrious, faithful, indefatigable public servant, who would have made a good Representative. Ot the oilier Senator, James D. Wescott, Jr., what shall we say 1 An old hunker, a man of good talents, a good criminal lawyer. It eeems that the Legislature elected this person to the Senate of the United States, as a recompense for his active exer tions in the State elections. We see from the Fioridian of to-day, that the guillotine has been at work in our neighboring vil lage of St. Murks, and that the place of the gentle manly Collector, win. II. Ware, Esq., has been supplied by Nathaniel W. Walker. The resignation ?>1 David Levy has created a new election for member of Congress. There are two tiichmonds in the field?both of them the first blood of Virginia. Ed. Conington Cabell, is the whig candidate, a young man ot merit and talent, anil Wm. H. Brockenbrough the standard bearer of the locofocos. The contest will be a warm one. The Stbte is probably democratic, but such unfair ness was used towards the rest of the democratic party in the caucus which nominated Brocken brough, that Cabell's prospect is much the best for election; and taking into consideration the fact that Brockenbrough is a member of that cabal, the bastard Albany Regency, for which the democratic party have not tho r wonted attachment. Hartford, Sept. 2,1815. Hill and Nash?Misses Bramson?Goldsmith?B rad* bury?Accident to Hon. Isaac Toucey and Ijidy. We have the past few weeks been overrun and surfeited with shows, concerts, Arc. Arc. Messrs. Hill and Nash, of your city, have the past week given two concerts in this city to delighted audi ences ; as also in several other towns in this State, the past few wesiks. The Misses Branwon, this evening and to-morrow evening, are to show us what Misses seven and ten years of age can do. Goldsmith the celebrated penman, from the " Em pire City," is here "kicking up considerable of a dust," and cutting flourishes with his pen, and filling his pockets with three dollar bank rags, from pupils of his large school. Mr Bradbury, of your city, last evening gave a, concert, with some 400 Sabbath school children whom he has been teaching here a few weeks past. The Hon. Isaac Toucey, and his lady, came very near being killed, yesterday, in Bolton, a town 12 miles east of this city. It happened in this wise:? In attempting to turn around his carriage, in which were himself and jady, the carnage upset, and the horses run, mangling Mr. T. in a most shocking manner; insomuch that, from accounts received this morning in this city, the result between life and death, in Ins case, is doubtful. His wife escaped with only slight bruises. The best of medical at tendance was, of course, immmediately called. Mr. Toucey has twice represented this district in Con gress, and was last year the democratic candidate for < iovernor, und is, beyond dispute, the ablest lawyer in the democratic ranks, in this State. The story that I have lately seen in different pa lters that Mrs. Sigourney, our city's gifted and es teemed poetess, was very sick, was greatly over stated. As none ot our city presses have put the matter right, the Herald must do it. Mrs. S. wns confined to her house onlv two or three days with a common summer complaint, such as all other per sons tn litis section ot country have during the fruit season, and which is here always termed only the summer complaint. Is it not strange that no person ot any note can have a toothache, a toe ache, or any other ache, without its being heralded from odp end of our country to the other as " lying at the point ot death," ?Vc., whilst many a poor female is robbed of her virtue and then mur dered, boxed up nnd sent to the dissectiontsts, with out any effort to ferret out the murderers.

Quirt Villa#?Beautiful Girls and Old Maids Grand Hoax-Jack o' Lanthern-Neio Yorkers at a Discount. I am at present rusticating for a few days in this lonely but interesting village, and presuming you have never had a correspondent here, I must give you some little description of the place. It iB loca ted about live miles from Newark, and lies chiefly upon two roads,one, the Dover turnpike, from New ark, and the other Patterson road, which branches off from the turnpike just at the commencement of the village. The principal purt lies upon the Pattei" son road, upon which is situated the Church, front ing which is a large, and beautiful "green" or com mon, extending nearly the whole length of the village, which is surrounded by posts, (and chains by and by) interspersed with beautiful fruit and shade trees, which are planted a certain dis tance apart; and completely encircling the whole spot On either side are the dwellings ol the princi pal citizens, chieflv built in a neat manner, some ol which are uiter the stvle of the modern finish ol our own city. On one side is a large brick edifice, which is occupied as a Classical and English School for young men; and nearly opposite is an ex tensive female seminary?at this school there are many very beautiful young ladies, some ol whom are from New York. These two ucadernies com bined together, contribute to make the place very lively and happy. If you should ever visit this piace, do so by all means on Sunday, when you will have the opportunity ol seeing all the place contains.? When the bell is lolling tor church, many prim old maids may be seen wending their way towards the church, followed with not u tew "luckless wits, stalking in their best, with one eye on the other sex, and the other on the church door as a matter ol course; and carriage after carriage rolls along, bear in" bright eyes und beautiful smiles to render prais es" toward their Creator for his mercy and benili ceuce; and lastly, though not least, you see n whole re?iment of young and heautdul girls, walking two and two, with their principal at their head, for by this time von would have found outjthat they were the pupils of the female seminary; while nearly behind them, are coming the "Academy ISnys' in the same manner On the whole., there is something in the Sabbath here, that delights the eye and is deeply in teresting to the mind. . Though almost stiictly puritanical and inetlioi is tical in their thoughts and actions, yet these vi la gers are often the subject of a merry joke or giddy frolic. One of the rarest of these happened not more than three davs ago. Upon looking out of my window in the morning, 1 saw quite a crowd of the inhabitants gazing very attentively upon something which seemed very interesting, posted upon the "pole ot liberty" near the dwelling where I was re siding. Curiosity impelled me to hasten out, and as I drew near, to my surprise, horror was depected on every countenance. Some were lifting their hands to heaven, others crying out, "save us! save us " What can it be, thought 1. as 1 was trying in vain to get a view of the "monstrous thing. It Can't be war with Mexico, thought i; no, that sure ly cannot strike such horror to these quiet villagers. "1 leaven save us," cried 1, with the rest, thinking it must be something new from Miller By this tune 1 got near enough to read the following NOTICE. To the inhabitants of Bloomfield and its vicinity:-?An amateur company of Indies am) gentlemen lrom New York have consented, by the advice of numerous mends, to "ive a theatrical representation for one bight only in this village. The members of this company have been informed that the people of this place aro desirous of a theatre, and that they have had hitherto to blush (or the want of nn institution of this kind, have now an oppor tunity by patronising the humble endeavors of these followers of Thespis, to establish a permanent "J'emple to the Muses" in the flourishing Tillage of Bloomfield.

The old folks talked of the laws, sheriff consta ble" Arc. Arc.; and the young ladies, God bless them, wondered it the young Thespis wus good l? Thus time passed on till! Monday evening, when after tea 1 sallied forth to see the sport. 1 here were eight or ten grou|>s of idlers on the Common and many othetsscattered over the "green,? und quit" a "sprinkling" of our before-mentioned young la, dies in front of their-echool house, touddenly and simultaneously, a red and blue light, though both uuile small,were seen about an 8Jh ?* mlle on,and a rush was immediately made lor it. I ran with the others, and on reaching the spot where the light was seen, it as suddenly disappeared. 1 concluded from what I observed ot it that it was a will-o -the-wisp, and so it undoubtedly was. feo after waiting till about eight o'clock and seeing nothing more, the multitude,thinking they had been most awfully took in began to drop oil one by one till they were .ill dispersed. 1 lingered about listening to the most exquisite music i ever heard, emanating troni the ?Seminary opposite to where I stood, and shortly af ter I retired into the house and into> the arms ot Morpheus, and lelt the good village of Bloomfield as peaceful as it had been before the " Amateur Thea trical Company" had threatened to contaminate it with their "sublime teachings in the paths ot re igion, virtue and honor." Fort Hamilton, 1st September, 1S45. The Ball at the Hamilton House. The ball that took place on last Friday evening nt the Hamilton House, was really a most beautiful as well as splendid aflair. We have been at maay balls and fetes, from'that given to La Fayette, at Castle Garden, in 1824, up to the present time, yet we feel hound to say, that in point of gentlemanly und lady, like demeanor, elegance of dancing, elegance (f manners and dress, and high respectability oi com pany, we have not seen any thing of the kind, for the number of two hundred persons, that surpassed, in any way, this enchanting affair, got up by the en terprising and gentlemanly proprietor of the hotel, Mr. Alonzo Reed. The music was good, the danc ing was good, the supper was good, and the cham pagne was better, as it sparkled in the gentlemen s eyes as beauty, innocence and pleasure sparkled in those of the ladies. The hall room was honored and graced by Doctor E., of the Army, und his three ac complished daughters Alderman B. of thiscity, two sons, daughter and niece. Mr. M. ot Broadway with his lady and sisters. Also I Miss S. ol Ko chester; oh! what pretty eyes! Then there was 1) C. 1'., Esq., and one of the most fascinating wives on earth. Oh ! how she renovated the withered chord of mv old heart ?hut, "thou shalt not covet, vVc." She was the belle of the evening, and danced with great modesty and grace, as did all the ladies present. We had officers of the army, geiulcmeii ol ihc bar, and of the medical profession, with highly respectable merchants and others, from the neighbor hood. among whom were General B. and daughter, of Arlington House, Counseller L. S. E. Esq., and C. D. W Esq , Mr. II of Washington street, and Mr. C. of Front street, were active and eflicient managers.

L-ss than a year ago tins enterprize was looked upon by many of our shrewd, sound, calculating men, including some three hundred and sixty from a neighboring St tie, cut moonshine, or in other words,asan impossibility And in fact, until our leg islature granted a charter?which for liberality, fair ness and ? quality, is not surpassed in our country's history?toiiowed by Canada and New Hampshire, I in continuation of the same road?many could not believe Maine capable of accomplishing a work 1 costing nearly two aud a halt millions of dollars to i ihe Canada line. But subsequent events prove that Maine is not only abundantly able, but willing, by ihe fact, that in less than u week utter trie books ; were opened, Portland alone subscribed tire hun dred thousand dollars, which has gradually swelled to one million, the sum necessary tor organization. English capitalists have taken the balance of the 0 uiaUiati stock, aud stand ready with anxious looks, open purses, and a reasonable anticipation of ten per cent interest, to catch the few crumbs that tall from Maine's subscription books. Judging from present appearances, this magnani mous undertaking will he speedily accomplished, when each successive sun snail witness a train or cars winding their way through the interstices of this "howling wilderness," laden with the inexhaustible treasures of the mighty West?when Maine shall i assume a name and i?luce she is destined to occupy, i at no future day?first and foremost in agriculture, ; manufactures and commerce! Maine has come te the rescue! Fuhny Scene in Washington.?The President as you have doubtless heard, has recently been | making tours of "inspection" (so callud) through all the ' different bureaus ana departments, just as the overseer I of a large manufacturing or agricultural establishment occasionally takes the round among his employees, to see that each understands his respective duty and is not slack in its performance. Well, the other day ho paid a visit of this sort to the treasury department. The head of one of the bureaus, who has been in office very long, and is more than suspected of harboring whigism, (and heuco somewhat apprehensive of the " guillotine,") was peculiarly polite and agreeable to " his excellency," car rying his affability, perhaps, to a stupid excess. Among other" reforms" suggested by the bureau-man to the | ['resident, was one in relation to procuring new I "fixtures," as it was represented that those in use were I totally inadequate to the preservation of the very nu ! inerous and important public papers committed to ; his safe keeping. " And now,"said he, " merely to give j you an idea of the kind of places in which we are com; i pelled to stow away our papers, let me open one of the j drawers here Rt the same time suiting the action to I the word. The drawer was revealed, when, lo, and be} | hold, the eyes of the President were greeted with the ; sight of a bottlo of porter, a paper-bag lull of biscuit, and a huge Bologna sausage The surprise depicted on | the countenance of the chop-fallen dignitary, would pre j sent a picture well worthy the pencil of a Hogarth, but ' your correspondent begs to be excused from any attempt i to portray it. He sought relief from his delicate posi ' tion by assuring the ProsideBt, that these luxuries did not ! j belong to him, but had been deposited there by one of j the clerks, whose stomach, probably, had rebelled against the ten-hour system. The President replied, with characteristic naivelti , that ho considered these fix- . teres as fully adequate to contain all such " numerous : ind important public papers," and that no further reform j in this respect was needed.

A great number of distinguished di vines have visited Saratoga duiiug the present month. Throwing off the cares ami anxieties for their churches, when they arrive hero, they also lay aside that ministerial austerity and severity, in which they are too olten en shrined at home, and mingle with the gay crowd, as though they were ol " like passions as other men " It is customary at the Union Hall, to attend prayers every evening at 7 o'clock. There is usually dancing and other amusement in the saloon, but when tho hour arrives, all, with one consent proreod to the dining hall, where sonic cleigvmnn officiates ; after which the dance is re sumed and 'continued not later than 10 or II o'clock Theso proceedings appear to bo legarded by all with complacency and favor: no objection is offered, no fault found. Our best men were present and shared the gen eral joy." This is probably all right, but it does seem to us.that the prayers and dancing should be kept a little further apart. , Providential Escape.?Maj. Wm. Bloodgooil of Albany and two of his children, had a very nar row escape ot their lives on Tuesday morning, from the bolting of his horses in a barouche that he was driving. It appears that the horses became alarmed when near the heud ol Stato street, by meeting with some companies of militia going "a-training," an.I that his first efforts to stop them were frustrated by the breaking of the chains on the bits. Retaining his scat and the reins, howf ver, Major Bloodgood guided the horses, even in their mad career, with a firm and skillful hand,and had partially succee led in checking their speed when the carriage was overset in Market street, most fortunately without injury to those within. Port Captains.?Mr. Bancroft, the Secretary of the Navy,has dis|*>nsed with the Port Captain at this itation, and directed that hereafter the command of the Commandant of the Yard will extend to the station and all 1'.

The jury gave to Air. fowle damages in the amount of $775. The other case was for the loss of a cow, which bad been run over and killed by the engine.
