THE NEW YORK HERALD. ??I. XI., Mo. !<40.WkoU Mo. *118. NEW YORK, WEDNESDAY MORNING, SEPTEMBER 17, 1845. Imi>ortaiit from Oregon. We have received some important intelligence from Oregon. It appears that the English residents have had for some time a regularly organized gov ernment, anthorized and protected by the British Parliament. It also appears that the Americans were engaged, at the last accounts, in establishing a government of their own. This, it will be recol lected, they threatened a few months ago. The St. Josephs Gazette publishes two letters from an emigrant to Oregon. Tho first, dated the 17th of Febru ary alludes chiefly to the progicss which tbo settler* are making. The writer speuks in warm terms of the coun try, und says that the emigrants raised a surplus of wheat last year ol' 100,DOS bushels. The other letter is more Important, becuu/y it Shows that the emigrants navo already established^ jppamte government. Poli tics, it ceonis, wero runuiniJ/ high, and there, as here, there appears to be no lacj#6f men ready to take the re sponsible office of Governor. Tho organization at'this government will very likely bring about a collision be tween tho emigrunts and the Hudson Bay Company. That company, for several years past, has had a Go vernment organized under an act of the Knglish Parliament, under which there is a resident Justice of the I'eaco at Fort Vuncouver, and one at se veral otiier stations. These Justices have juris diction over all suits nnd contracts not exceeding i'.'OO, and over certain offences, for which they may in llict punishment. Suits lor larger sums, and offences of a higher grade, ure referred to the superior courts of Ca nada, and in criminal cases the accused may be senttbore for tnal. The jurisdiction of those Justices, we believe, extendi to all cases arising between members of the Hud son Bay Company, or persons in their employ, and to casos arising between the company and their employees, and parsons not connected with them. As there must necessarily be many transactions between tho emigrunts and the Hudson Bay Company and their employees, in which disputes und difficulties will arise, it is reasonable to suppose that in such cases both governments will pro I ably claim jurisdiction, and such conflicting claims will doubtless lead to difficulty. 11'tho emigrants feel suffici ent security in themselves to establish an independent government, they will not tauioly submit to any assump tions of the tlnglisk Company or of their officers. We learn by the am.exod letter, that there are three candidates for Governor in the field. Wo should like to know the designation of the parties, and the principles they respectively contend lor. The fact that our citizens have gone to Oregon?a country claimed by the United States as a part of her territory?and that thoy have been forced, as a means of sell-protection to esta blish a government of their own, and at their own expense, speaks badly for the attention and guar dian cure of the National Government. This state of things, and the necessity lor it, should not have been permitted by our uational legislators. The emigrants, it seeuiB, from tbe first letter, are not very well prepared to meet the expense of an independent government, un less skins, peltiies, fee., are made a lawful tender. The writer says: "There is little or no money in this country, business is carried on entiioly by exchanging commodi ties. 1 did not believe that tkie people could do as well without money." A grist mill with three run of stones has been put into operation at the Wullamette Falls. Merchandize is said to be very scarce. Makch 28.? We have bad soruo beautiful weather in this month. Tho farmers are driving business as thoy should. There word some fears entertained a few days since of a difficulty with ludians, but 1 do not think there was any cause for alarm. Politics are running very high at this time hero, as our general election cemos on in May. I think, that it is the opinion of every body, that Uncle Sam is treating us with great neglect, in con sequence of which we have organized into a government known by the name of the Government of Oregon. We have three candidates for the Executive office, to wit: George Abertiathy, Osborn Russell, and Dr. Bailey. 1 was a member of the Legislative Committee last year. Mr. Burnett was also a member. Oregon City at tbe Fsdls is improving finely. * * * S. M. GILMORK. [Frem New Orleans Bulletin, Sent. 8] By tbe Hudson Bay Company's barque Cowlitz, at the Sandwich islands, tho followiug letter, dated Oregon, January lltli, had been received:? "From the best information 1 can obtain, the present emigration from tho United States (and mostly from Mis souri) numbers above eight hundred, including men, women and children?some say many more. The Legis lative Committee of Oregon rose a few days since from tho silting adjourned from June last. The town at tho Wallamatte Falls is incorporated; and at the election of the city council much spirit was exhibited. The parties in politics tro now Hon. H. B. men and Amcricuns. Geo. Abenathy, Ksq., is elected Mayor. The health of the country is remarkably good. The season thus far has been warm and exceedingly rainy. Much damage has been done by high water in the country.'' | From Boston Post, Sept. lfi.] Yesterday aiternoou two companies of artillery, arm ed as Infantry, under command of Captain F. Taylor, ar rived in this city from Foit Adams, Newport, und em barked on board the Albatross. They were accompa nied by the regimental hand, headed by a fine-looking drum major, in a splendid uniform. Two companies more are expected from the eastward to-day, to go out in the same vessel. Dreadful Tornado?Great Destruction of Property, and Marvellous Preservation of Life.? Last Thursday afternoon our town was visited by one of tho most destructive tornadoes, accompanied by hail and rain, ever known in this section of the country. The storm did net last overlive minutes, but the work ol destruction is truly frightiul to contemplate For about three miles in length and one-fourth in width, houses and bams are unroofed and torn in pieces, fences scattered to the four wiuds of heaven, orchards torn up by the roots, and forests literally levelled to the earth. The tor nado commenced its ravages on the farm lately owned by Samuel Smith, deceased, about two miles west of this village. It prostrated the orchard and fences, and dam aged the house and barn considerably From thence it pursued a south-easterly direction, leaving nothing in its track but wreck and ruin. The amount of damage, or tho names of all the sulferors.we have not leurned. Nor man Wilcox had the roofofa now house tukeu oil',and the entire building moved about thice leet J. Tompsou had tho root ot a barn toru to pieces and his fences scat tered in all directions. Mrs. Cowun also had a barn bad ly torn to pieces, and fences prostrated. I'eter McFar bin had ti large stack of hay taken tip in a body, and car ried high above the surrounding forest, out of sight Leonard Couunt had between two and three hundred handsome rasple tiees torn up by tlie roots, and entirely destroyed. V et tho greatest sufl'oror, wc understand, it. Thomas Paddock His dwelling house was neatly ruin ed ; his barn torn to pieces ; his orchard destroyed ; his fences, hop house end hop yard completely prostrated We have beurd his loss estimated ut seven or eight hun dred dollars Our citizens, with their accustomed libe rality, immediately repaired to tho scenes of disaster, to aid in repairing damages as far as possihlo. We ore hap py to learn no lives were lost, or the person of any one injured in the least, although many were placed in very perilous situations. One small building in which were three children, was completely thrown <lown. The chil drc.i were dug out of the ruins without so much as a scratch upon them, to the astonishment of all present. Threo cows, bolonging to Mrs. Cowan, were so com y fait jdetely hedged in by fallen trees that it required several men nearly half a day to liberate them ; not one was in jured in the least. Grain of all kinds, in the track of the tornado, is quite destroyed.? Franklin (Malone) Palla dium. Ecuador and Peru.?We publish the following interesting letter irom an authentic source, says the Philadelphia Umrtte of the 16th inst., relative to the dif ncaltie, nt present existing between the two South Ame rican Republics of Kcundor mid Peru. It was our good lortunc to have been enabled, in tho paper of the Sth inst. to piitdishn letter received from our correspondent at Guayaquil, teceivod via Panama and Havana, dated July : lit, in which not only weru the disastrous incidents and j effects of this war dosci ibod, but also the condition of the ?rnp of, and trade in, their great staple of cocoa We weuld refer to that letter in connection with this, which il subjoined:? Quito, June 19, lsi.'i?I write you these fow Hasty lines by way of llogeta, as Don Vicenti Cardenas, the now Orenadinn Charge d'Atl'aires, sends off a courier to- ' night with dispatches to his Oovernmentin Bogota.

Sandwich islands.?We have received a file of the Friend, published nt Honolulu, Ouhu, to the ltfiii j of May last, inclusive. There had been a very severe i ?;ale nt Lnhaina, which compiled between thirty ami nrly of the whalers at anchor in the roadstead to put to sea, several of which received considerable damage. Tho Friend says the damage was estimated At between thir'y and forty thousand dollars. Tho galo was also severe at Honolulu, but no damage was done there. ? apt a in llalscy, of tho Franklin, touched nt Pitcairn's Island on tho isiu January last. F ound tho colony in a prosperous condition. ami had no dilllculty in obtaining a good supply of vegetables. The day previous to his leaving the Island, the natives hnd succeeded in obtain ing one of the Bounty's guns. It had been under water ht years. Twenty-six of tho Van Dieman's Land prisoners had arrived nt Honolulu in the whale ship Steiglitz. They were waiting for an American whaler to hting them home. In Tnhita, the state of public affairs remained unsettled. The public mind scemod to bo in suspense, waiting tho arrival of the hnglish Admiral In the meantime, how ever, the Fiench were completing their public works and lortitications. Sk'kxrrr in Illinois.?We regret in state that much Hickncstt continues to prevail in this and the udjoining counties of Illinois, as woll as in Missouri and otiicr VV esterii states. In many places the sick are so numerous that it is dlfllcult to procure the attendance necessary to their comfoi-t. The most common disease is Intermittent fever; and, when tint too long neglected, generally yields readily to the usual remedies. It is ptincipally confined to the country and small villages the principal towns boing but slightly alTected by It.? Alton nituwu mora healthy than It la at prosont.?Al ton TtUtrtph. Aiitl-itent Trial*. [Kroin Albany Argus, Hept. 10.] Delhi, Sopt. 13. 1845?The Grand Jury came into court last evening, nt 9 o'clock, having found indictments against fifty-two persons. Twelve are for appearing disguised and armed, and fer conspiracy to prevent \villinm Swart and Noah Dim mick.jr. from making surveys at Mlddletown lust spring. Kivo ot the twelve indicted tor this offt-nce are in custo dy, viz.:?Klias Osterhout, Zadoc I'. Northrup, Daniel Northrup, Jason Sunlord, and Nathaniel Hendricks. Twenty-four of the indictments aro for conspiracy, appearing disguised and arined, riot and attempt to res cue u prisoner (Zera I'reston), in March last, at Koxbury. Nino of the persona indicted are in custody, viz.:?Au gustus Kittle, Daniol Northrup, Ellas Osterhout, Daniel Whipple, Zadoc P. Northrup, Alva !?'. (Jroshy, Jason Saudlord, Nathaniel Hendricks, ami Hiram U. Kelsoy. ..-(Sixteen of the indictments are for conspiracy, attempts to rescue prisoners, and appearing disguised on another occasion?two of these uio in custody?Jason Sunlord ami John Phenix. At 10 o'clock this morning the (Jrand Jury came into Court witli twenty-three other indictments, for appear ing armed and disguised, riot and kidnapping Under Sheriff Steele, and C. S. Parker, constable, at Andes, last March. Seven of the persons indioted are in custo dy, viz.:?Daniel C. Northrup, Elias Osterhout. Darius Travis, Wm. 'Bryant, Miles Bramble, Johu l.atham, aad David Northrup. Kiias Osterhout pieade.l guilty to tho indictment for appearing disguised and armed with intent to prevent surveying. Alvah P. Crosby pleaded guilty to tho chnrgo of ap pearing disguised, see., not guilty of conspiracy and at tempt to rescue. He also entered the like plea to tho se cond indictment for tho samo offence at Koxbury, in March last. Homer Bergen and James Barnhart pleaded not guilty to the indictments against them. Miles Bramble pleaded not guilty. The Court then adjourned over to Monday. Tho (fraud Jury will continue in session until the com mencement ot the Over and Terminer on tire 3Ud inst.? Many are already indicted who have not heretofore been suspected of having taken part in the Indian movements; and many more piobubly will be, for having contributed to tho purchase of arms and disguises for the natives,and sonic for interfering and tampering with u former Grand Jury to present indictments. Rely upon it. we have a Grand Jury that will fearlessly do their whole duty. This being done, Delaware county will soon be restored to her former quiet and good order. In one of the towns there appears to be still n deter mination to brave it out to the last. But thoy fiml no sympathy or support. Ma tan/as, August 28,1845. Important Suggestions to Invalids?Is Cuba the Place for Consumption !?1*1 us see. The great migration of individuals from the Uni ted States to this Island yearly, whose delicate state of health obliges them to seek more genial climes than their native land offers during the jvinter sea son, and the persuasion under which*!-labor of being of service to suffering humanity, and tBP instrument, perhaps, of snatching from eternity manw of my fel low-creatures, lias determined me to offer to them and you, the following remarks on a subject which has frequently struck me forcibly since my residence in this Island, which no other motive but philanthro py induces, and which consequently will, I trust, find room in a corner of your valuable pa|>er, the ob ject being, I hope, a sufficient recommendation, though set forth in familiar language and unaccom panied by any personal knowledge of their author. 1 have opened this article by allusion to the fact that a great number of persons annually visit Cuba in hojies of finding a cure in its comparatively iriild climate, for the pulmonary diseases under which they all sutler more or less, or otherwise to pass a season of the year, which, did they remain at home, would cause imminent risk to their lives. Many, it is true, find alleviation in these visits, and some, but alas! of this number very few, ever return to their desponding family and friends. But though this climate, compared with the winter of the north, is of course mild, if possesses unfortunately qualities which make it far from being a desirable abode for j invalids: namely, the ruw,penetrating,cutting,cold northers, and the {general humidity of the atmos phere?qualities, which but for the rare cases of ef fected cures, and the hope which never desert* humani ty of prolonged lifo, joined to thejproximity ofthi* Island to the Cnited States, and the having Iriends or acquaint ances, or the facility of making them in almost all its large cities, would, 1 am convinced, deter the multitude from venturing. Tbo tido, however, running this way, (a consequence of the above circumstances) and no other spot having been, to ray knowledge, pointed out for the salvation of the worn out invalid, none other is now ever thougnt of; though the undeniable and melancholy fact that hundreds, nay thousands, of the natives of Cuba, an nually succumb to the fatal disease of consumption in all us ramifications, and that it is the night-mare which haunts all classes, were it, perhaps, known on the other side, would detract much from the confidence with which lost health is sought after here, and apeaks volumes in favor of my object. But I am not so cruel as to dissipate the illusion which constitutes that confidence, without indicating where it may be revived in a tenfold degree, and I most unhesitatingly give it us my intimate convic tion jhat whoever will hearken to my advice, founded not on medicine, but on physical facts which 1 have closely observed, and from which I have drawn my con clusions, having the great book of iiuturc for my muster, will bless the memory of him on whoso suggestion he acted. i nuve now spoilt five years in this country, having loft ( urthugena, New (iranuda, in 1?40, where 1 resided up warns ol lourteen years?years of unalloyed happiness? and it is thither I would recommend persons ulllicted with pulmonary complaints to go?people never think of nor hint at, such a thing as consumption there, and I do not exaggerate when 1 say that during the long period of my residence, 1 really cuunot bring to mind above half u dozen fatal cases of it, and of these, two of almost aged individuals. The natives think as little of a cold, as the Cubanos do a great deal of one?and indeed, it is no won der they do, for very many fatal consequences have en sued from disregarding a slight cold hero, and with in conceivable rapidity thousands el young and healthy be ings arc snatched from life by this remorseless enemy. In Carthagena, the dry, balmy, healthy breeze, especial ly from November to April,the entire absence of northers and fogs, and the extreme beauties of nature in its neigh borhood, must infuse a degree of joyousucss and exhila ration into the spirit of a sick man, iu itself a balm to auf loring. And now that communication by steam is about being effected between that port and New York, the dis tance will be much teducad, though this never can, or ought, to he an objection when live regular packet brigs, v.-ell commanded, trade between thoso ports, and gener ally make the run within twenty days. There are not,,it is true, such splendid hotels as the traveller.finds in 11a van-*, but there are a couple of houses kept by French and K.nglish Creoles, excellent nurses, and what is pant ing in luxury, is amply mudo up by comfort and kimlness. The An.erican Consul, Mr. ft. L. Sanchez, and his most amiable family, the very essence of human goodness, would leel a pleasure in doing every thing to put a stran ger, and au infirm one, in tho right iiuth for passing his i-ojourn as well as circumstances will admit, and would doubtless recommend, which the writer most assuredly ,;oes, the making a village four leagues from Carthagena , railed Turhaed, his head-quartern. Nothing can be inoio i harming, more invigorating, morobulmy, than this spot mid its atmosphere. Tho roud to it on ono oi the ambling horses of the country can be got over without any la tigue whatever in two hours 'This trip is ol itself a re ndition?the total difference to the tiavelling in Kuropo or tho Slates?the picturesque beauty of tho scenery ? i ue rich foToge, aud the fragrunce of innumerable wild flowers?the endless variety of beautiful birds, (which one nevor sees in Cuba, strange!)?tho squirrels, deer, i ml foxes that frequently cross tho path,carry away the tiaveller's leelings from tho contemplation of his mala I'.ie*, and create a reaction iu his paysical man, which mist act beneficially cn his system then tho hospitality, honesty and cheapness which urc characteristic of tho eouatry?and to complete the whole, it would appear fiat all tho lotoignors established there (at Carthagena) havo left the daik shades of their characters behind them Mid display nothing but kimlness anil good fuclings to wards each other, and the natives. As regards expense, the author of this is deeidedly of opinion, that a gentleman could pass a winter in Cartha gena, and havo liis servant with him, without disbursing ,.lore or even so much, as lie would for himself alone iu ? uba ; he can also obtain very good medical advice, and an abundance of asses milk, a specific in high favot f ir any disorder of the lungs. It isitrue, the pioneets to t ne new field of regeneration pointed out in this article, would, probably, have to bear with some inconveniences, hut good-w ill, which the native* possess in an essential C.egree, and a good servant, will banish almost any with which this life is attended, and the evil would remedy itself, did the habit ol periodically visiting Carthagena unco become general. This article, already longer than I intended, will, it is trusted, m>t pass ontircly disregarded by that large por tion of sull'orers w ho ate obliged to leave their homes and families annually in search of a boon rarely granted ta them in Cuba. It is worth their trial for a season or l A'0 as directed, and the projector feels assured it would I e but the commencement of a periodical migration most happy itrita results, and the means of makmg known a i uuntry rich in its natural resources, and only requiring capital and energy, to make it one of the most enchant ing and flourishing in the world. If acceptable, the writer ol tins, may at some future period again trouble you with other articles, relating to that country, so worthy ol being bettor known. Suspicion of MckdBR.?A colored man named Charles Baymnn, cnine to his death suddenly in I- lushing, on Monday noon, September S. lie was with ins wife returning along the road to his home at rroi.li loudows, sad they were heard quarreling, and lie was Jen to strike his wife with a stick, and she was seen throwing stones at him. Me was found over a fence with some remains of life, and said to his wife?" Old oman, yon have done this." A jury returned a verdict -'Death (rum causes unknown." Some excitement pre i tiled, and a medical examination was held by Dr. Yulk. ritisted by Dr. Hedges. The woman continues at li lirty. American Institute?.Farmers' Club. The usual hall monthly meeting of the Farmers' Club wo* hel.l yesterday, but there were not as many present us en former occasions. General Ch aiadlkh, on taking the chair, by desire of the meoting, observed, that if their numbers were smaller than tbey ought, it was in part because notice was not given of it, it boing tho last meeting they should hold before the fair. Col. Clark intimated that he had an appoiutmout which would make his departure necessary. Eeforo he went ho desired to bring to their notice a source of in" jury which lie had observed to the tomato. Ho httd seve ral very vigorous ones in his garden, on going into which one morning he observed the plant attacked by ou immense worm, and a number of eggs deposited, trom which he believed the progeny sprung. If so, it was practicable to prevent the ravages of the enemy by the destruction of the or<r. [The worm and cgg? were ex hibited ; the latter wuro as large as No. il shot, white and oblong; the insect was alive, and a most ferocious looking creature, fully three inches long, of a dark brown, and a capacious mouth, w ith which it was tear ing the leaves within its reach ] The Chairman suggested the propriety of postponing the discussion of the appointed topic, on account of the thin attendance. Mr. Mlius sai l that he had met with an interesting ar ticlo in a newspaper, which might serve n good purpose to read, sud he n substitute for their stated discussion. The extract wus read, containing a sketch of the pro ceediugs of the " Society for the promotion and improve ment of the growth of llax in Ireland." The meeting was held at Belfast, and was well attended. Its receipts since their precoding meeting held shortly before wore A'1000 5s. A letter was rend from a gentleman in the County Derry, bearing testimony to the profitable na ture of the llax crop. " I had," ho says, " sown last spring not quite eight acres of flax, from which I had 'JU"> stones, which brought in the Cookttown market 8s. per stone, and ftl stones at Bs., besides cwt. of scutching tow nt 9s. per cwt, making ?129 (is. lid., or above t'lti per acre." Ho udds that the seed saved at home from that crop promised better than tho ltiga seed, which is the most esteemed of the imported seeds. Mr. Mums added, after reading the extract abovo no ticcd, that for a long time tho impression prevailed in Knrope that flax could not bo spun by machinery, but this lias been removed. A series of scientific observa tions having been made by a French gentleman, with the aid of the microscope, ho found that llax was com nosed of fibres interlaced and adhering closely together, about three inches long, and that by detaching thusc lib res from each other, the material was rondercd as sus ceptible of being spun into yarn, as either cotton or wool. Ho believed, that although tho machinery was not yet completed, it would be, and he regarded the sub ject as well worthy the attention of our own peo ple. Whenever flux spinning was brought to the highest possible stato of perfection, and the present objections removed, there would be n new era of manufacturing in the world. He believed that tho consumption of linon would bo vast, if it was made as cheap as it might. Say what they might about cotton, it was only its cheapness that made its use universal, and if linen were reduced, as it would yet be, no man would wenr a cotton shirt, or lie between cotton sheets, while they could get linen on moderate terroB. He thought the American Institute ought to give the matter its attention, and encourage, as far as in their power, the culture of llax in this country. Mr. Waiohtman observed, that during the last war,he and a few others, were for some years engaged in bring ing machinery to perfection for the manufacture of llax. All theycould do the little fibres would stick out in spin ning, and the thread present an unfinished appearance, and it was to get over this they were so anxious. He thought that they might have succeeded, but the war ended, and the bounty was takon off, thereby causing a large importation of foreign linen, and so they had to give up their projpet. He thought that if linen had as strong a protection as cotton, it would become as com mon made and used. The want of protection effectually prevented this; und the quantity of flaxseed even raised now, was dwindled away, and nothing like what it was 70 years ago. Then, there were very large quantities ol flaxseed shipped to Ireland; now, there is coinparatively little. What we want to bring the trade up again, is pro tection like that given to cotton. The Chairman here asked if any other person had any remarks to make on Flax, but no reply being given, the subject dropped. Mr. Whihtman then announced that the committee had nearly finished their arrangements for the anntlnl'Fair.and he thought it best to inform them, that October 1st, Ad, and 3d were named as tho three days for receiving arti cles for exhibition. There would be during the Fair term, a variety of addresses; among others, one by the Hon George i.unt, of Massachusetts, on Agriculture, on the 9th; and the annual address on the 17th. by the lion. T. D. Eliot, of Mass. The ploughing and spading matches would come oft'in the vicinity of Now York, en October Mth, and the cattle show on the 15th. In addition to all this, the Silk Convention will sit. and throw light on tin silk intercut, and an uncommon display of fiieworks will enlighten all that is interesting in the city. Mr. Menu hero presented n monster apple from tho orchard of Mr. Daniel MoKee, Hamilton, Upper Canada, and read an accompanying letter. This fine fruit mea sured 19 inches in circutnferance, and weighed nearly 20 ounces. It is generally considered larger than that whose fall suggested to Newton the existence of tho law of gravitation, and moro comely to the eye than that which grew in the garden of Eden in days of yore. Some magnificent specimens of grupos from the gar den of Mr. C. M. Graham, 115th street, wero also shown Mr. Graham made some useful observations on tho best mode of cultivating this truit, on pruning and various other tonics. He had raised those grapes from tho well known Isabella seed, and had been seven years in bring ing them to their present perfection. The improvement would be manifest, by comparing tho improved, with the original fruit, and testing the flavor. [The club, in order to do full justice to Mr. G. and his grapes, demol ished a few luxuriant clusters, and pronounced unani mously, that they were not to be surpassed.] Mr. Graham proceeded n little further, and apprized the club of a curious horticultural fact; which was this ? In his garden he had planted some squashes, and within a hundred yards of them, mock oranges, nnd among the latter lie u as surprised to And lately a production of a hybrid kind, partaking of the appearances of both. This plainly showed that they ought not to be placed conti guous, as a communication of the farina was evidently efleeted by perhaps a bee. Mr. G. showed the curiosity, which underwent an inspection. Letters wore read from Dr. Underbill on wheat; from Albert G. Karl, of Hempstoad. inviting the American In stitute to attend the Suffolk County Agricultural Fair, on the 9th of October next, and from a gentleman who signed himself " I'lain Farmer," with a sample of rye which lie had raised. Sevorul others were also read, anil the meeting adjourned, until after tho conclusion of the coming Fair. A Notorious Bank Robber Trapped.?For sometime past the police of this, and other cities, have been on tlic qui vive for a notorious Bank robber, named Charles D'Delpit, inconsequence of a heavy re ward having been ottered for his apprehension He, however, battled all their powers to catch him, until Saturday last, when he felt a prey to a well devised scheme, perfoctod by Mayor McCall, and is now a pri soner. It uppears, from what wo can learn respecting him, that he was one of the most adroit forgers that ever came to this country, and no douht he could a tale unfold that would show up in all its enormity the in famous scheme of the stool pigoon system of the police, as adopted in many of the laige cities of the Union. He stands charged with having robbed a Bank in Virginia and one in New Orleans, and perpetrated a number o( forgeries not only in those, but other cities, iu different parts of tho United Slates. He was supposed to have hud several accomplices in the nefarious business, which supposition turned out to he correct,ami which in realitj led to his detection. About two months ago, a French man, named U. Vill, was arrested on the charge of lotg ing a check on tho Bank of North America, ami com mitted to prison, it was supposed that Vill acted in con junction with D'Delpit, in consequence of the latter call ing to the prison to see him. In the meantime, his Honor, the Mayor of the city, learned that D'Delpit was an accomplice, and then placod a warrant into tho hands of Mr. Haines, the keeper of the prison, with instructions, that in case D'Delpit should come there ugain, to attest him. From that time up to Saturday, the Police of this city, New York, Baltimore and Washington City, were on the alert, but never saw the man. They had travelled according to their own showing from city to city -, had corresponded with each other, out strange to relate, the notorious forger could not he arrested. What a commentary upon the vigilance ol the Police? On Saturday last, however, a cat) stopped in front of the prison, Irom which a decently dressed man alighted. Ho gained an entrance to tho prison; and enquired to see Mr. Vill. Mr. Haines recognized liirn to bo D'Dnlpit, and from certain significant actions, the man evidently became very uneasy, lie spoke broken F.nglish, with French accent, and swoio vehemently tliat lie must be let out The keeper expressed an unwillingness to let him out, and the robber became quite indignant, and ut last uproarious His ravings, cursings and vehement exclamations, excited a stronger opposition on the part of Mr. Haines and other officers. The latter determined upon searching him-ho refused, but at length yielded to thoir pressing demands. Upon his person live sovereigns and a wallet containing small notes on afferent banks, in New York, auu some "valuable papers" were found. At length his hoots were pulled oft, the first one of which was found to contain a letter written in the French language, giving important infor mation. In tho other boot w as found a letter containing fifteen dollars in money,and a number of forged paper upon different individuals in New York city, lie wa subsequently placed in the cab that brought him down to prison and soon landed at the Mayor's Office, where he had a private hearing. He was afterwards committed to prison, whero he remains. Thus it will be seen, that by a scheme of the Mayor, himself, independent of his vigilunt and " anti-stool pigeon" police, one of the most adroit thieves has been arrested, lie is a regular Monroe Kdwnrds, and the thousand dollurs reward, ( tiered by tho Bank ?t Virginia for his apprehension, will (all into the hands of Mr. Haines and tho Mayor.

Bujfalo Com. *ddv.. City Intelligence. The Wcathkb.? What can bo more delightful than the weather we have had tor a few day* past. The air

is clear and pure?no sultry fog obacurea the sun?but tbo light breezes play about, bracing the nerves, and causing the blood to circulate briskly in the veins of the summer-heated, enervated citizens. The thermometer rises now to about 70 degrees, in the heat of the day.? The mornings arc delightfully cool?the nights are clear and comfoi table, disturbed only by the occasional song of some lascally musqulto, mourning over his approach ing banishment till warmer weathor. After such a sum mer as we have passed through, it is certainly delightful to be able now to " rua and not bo weary, to walk and not faint," or sweat. New Bi ildivus.?Oast e Church.?There are now in ' process of erection, muny new public builiiiigs, which will, when completed, be far superior to any we have in I the city. We yesterday paid a visit to Grace Church, now being elected at the corner ol Broad is ay and Tenth street. Tins church is built by the society who formerly 1 worshipped in Old Grace Church, on Broadwuy, tho , wealthiest and most fashionable church iii the city. ' The material is white marble, the style of arclii I lecture, the Gothic, and tho form, that of a cross. Tho workmanship is remarkably neat, the situu ' tion a commanding ono, as the church can be 1 seen from the lower er.d of Broadway. The height of the tower will lie 212 feet, the inner length from the tower to the hack of the chancel, 147 leet, and the width across tho chancel, 74 feet. It was commenced about three years ago, and it is the intention to have it dedi cated on the ensuing Christmas. Tbo cost of the build ing will bo about $200,000. Ms. Bi llow's Chi*?ch.?There is a church being erected on Broadway, betwoon Spring and I'rince streets by tho Unitarian society who formerly worshipped in Chambers street, under the charge of the Ucv. Mr. Bel lows, one of the most popular Unitarian clergymen, and a man of great literary attainments. This building is small, and will not present a showy appearance, but will lie distinguished for its neutnoss. The front is of brown ! freestone, it is castellated, and over the entrance two small crosses are curved out of the stone work. The building will probably be completed this fall. New Auction Store.?We yesterday made one of a very numerous party, who visited the new store, lately erected by Mr J. McCullougb, tho gentleman who has become famous in New York, for his lead works and shot towers; and among all the great number of splendid buildings thai have been erected lately in New Vork, this certainly is one of the most spacious and commodi- I ous. It is situated at the corner of Maiden I.ano and Front street, and has a front of fiity-iive feet on Front street, and seventy-four feet deep. The lower story is faced with brown stone, and tbe remainder of the build ing is of brick, the roof is of tin, and a handsome sky light adorns tbo upper story, which is to bo devoted to a public sales room, for tbo accommodation ot grocers an 1 others, who congregate at the largo auction sales thnt are made, from time to time, of tea, eolfee, fruits, lie., and from tbe appearance of this room, we should judge that, hereafter, it will be the auction room of the city. It is seventeen leet from Itoor to ceiling, and ex tends over the whole length, deptli and breadth of the stce. Tho lower story is to be occupied by Mr. Mc Cullongh, for his own business?the second is divided oil'into most convenient offices?the third is to be lot out for purposes of storage, Sic., and tho fourth, us lias al ready been said, is to he an auction room. The opening of this splendid store was celebrated yes terday by a most sumptuous entertainment, to which all. we may in truth say all, the tneichants in the line of business to which this room is to be devoted, for certain ly mote than six hundred were entertained by him with all the delicacies of the season. Mr. Delmonico furnish ed the whole ot the eatables and drinkables, and the posse of waiters were from the establishment of Down ing. A number of most excellent speeches and toasts were given in the course of tbe alteruoon, and many a happy repartee and sparkling bun not enlivened the ex cellent wine and segars that were supplied in the great est profusion. The wholesale auctioneers] of New Vorktn the course of a year, dispose of an immense amount of goods, in fact, a great number of articles are altogether sold out of first hands by means of the auctioneer, and the re turns of auction duties will give some insight into the immense amount that they reach in a year, whenit is re membered that these duties only are paid on certain ar ticles of foreign manufacture, and coming from beyond the seas, while quite a number of articles are exempt from any duty. Tho amount of duties on auction sales, paid by auctioneers in tho city of New York, for ttie year ending 30th September, 184-1, was $172,013 48?ef which sum one firm alone paid $38,901 88; and live other firms paid each sums varying from $13,000 to $21, 000?and eleven other firms sums varying each from $1000 to 9000. From tho year 1810 to the year 1839 the sales at auction in the State ol New Vork amounted to $082,114,489. These few statistics will give some little idea oi the immense importance of the wholesale auc tion business. The splendor of their new establishment, theiel'oie,is quite on a par witti their merits, and we dis miss tliis article with a hope tiiat .Mr. McCullougb may lung enjoy liis splendid siore. Union Racket Court.?This is a building on Broad way, a tew doors above Niblo's Garden, it is a large building, with a brown freestone frunt, which, when completed, will bo one of the finest in the city. It is built under the control of a committee of gentlemen ot this city, of the first wealth and respectability, and is to be devoted especially to tho purpose of playing tho manly game of rackets. The club who will use it is composed of merchants and.men of wealth. The building is 120 feet long, 38 feet wide, and 50 feet high, being lighted from the top by eight skylights. The building will cost about $70,000. There is an old racket court in Allen street which was built in 1802, and occupiod by a club which contained many of the members which will now compose the new ene. The game of Hickots is very popular in Fngland, and is there patronized by the nobility and gentry. It is but little knuwn in this country. It is an exercise calculated to developu all tho physical power of man. This new court will be ready for use ubout the first of January next. A Miracle.?In thin ago of deviations from the paths ot viitue and honesty, it is pleasing to bo able to record instances which prove that some of the pure essence is still remaining. On Monday evening, Mrs. Jacob W. Tripp, who had ridden out to Mauhattunvilie, left, by ac cident, her purse containing a considerable sum of money in the stage. The next morning it was returned by the driver, he having made enquiries and found the owner. The driver's name was John Urimiugton, driving the Mauhattanvillo stage for Benjamin Meore. Ha certainly deserves credit for his honesty. Distressing.?On Monday afternoon, Mr. Jaques Har dy, a French gentleman, residing at Sit Broadway, with Ins wife and a youug lady, took a short excursion down to Staten Island. While standing on tho bank at the Kort near the Narrows, Mr. Hardy lelt his wife to take a bath in the bay, only a few rous Irom where they stood. He had waded in but a few iect when he screamed out that tie was sinking ; his wife rushed in, but he sunk before she could leach him, and indeed site had but a narrow escape to save her own life. She?in a moment, made a wulow?lelt the ground in the greatest grief, and return ed home in the last boat. About an hour alter, his body was recovered, and taken to the Retreat Hospital, where every effort was made by Drs. Anderson, Boyd, and Boardmaii to rostoro him to lile, but the vital spark had tied. His corpse was brought to this city this morning. He was about 96 years old, came from Paris about eight months since, and was not engaged in any business. Essence ok Coffer?M. Szadccky has introduced an excellent urticlo in the shape of the Essence of Codec, a plan which will procure a good cup ofcotfce without the slightest trouble ol roasting, grinding, Sic. as usually practised by the community in general. The use of it is most simple, as it requites but u dilution with hot wa ter to any degree of strength, and whosoever likes to have a very nchcolfee, will, by a dilution ol this essence with pure milk, obtain tin alimentary bevcrago of un surpassed delicacy and richness.

Rip Van Winkle.?The steamboat Rip Van Winkle, has been withdrawn from the Albany route, lor the pur pose of making some alterations and additions. She is to he a night bout, and will resume her trips in the course ol two or threo weeks. Miscsk up the Apostrophe.?Some of our sign paint ers, bill writers, an i even editors, lately, make most hor tible woik in the use of the apostrophe, i'lurals are now very often converted, by these careless writers, in to possessive cases, thereby entirely destroying the sense, l'ussing up the Bowery, yesteiday, we saw, on a respectable grocer's sign, "Family's Supplied with Teas' t ott'ee and Sugar's;" ami we very often see " Spice's," " Segar's," iiml others of the kind. And now we have helm e us u daily paper, which states that "the Kean's commenced an engagement in Philadelphia on Monday night.'' This must ho sheer carelessness. There is u tuie for the use ol the apostrophe, which, if taken as u guide, will never tail in teaching its proper use. It is to no used only when the noun or pronoun with which it is used, is in the possessive case, or it is intended to sup ply tne place oi some letter or letters omitted, it should never be used in connection with a mere plural. Cl'lpahle.?\ usterday ufternoon, a horse was seen capering ahu'rt in Broadway between Franklin und While itieots, entirely treo lrom any harness. He ca pried in the street and ho capered on the side walk, greatly to tuc amusement ot a number of loulcrs und ne groes, and greatly to the lrighteuing of a large number ol ladles, who run into the shops in great terror. We understand that this horse belongs to n stable neur thore and that it is the custom of his keeper to take him front the -.table to water, entirely tree lrom harness, and thnt this is the third time ho lias made his appearance in Broadway, if his owner does not stop this game, the otiicers ought to. llonrd of Supervisor*.

Tiuin to the Press.?Tho Itev. Samuel H. Co*, of Btooklyu, has pablished a Ion*, elaborately eloquent, and somewhat curious document, expressive of tho grati tude of the committee und rnetnbars generally, of the Convention receutly held at his church, to the editors and publishers of the secular ami religious papers of r*e w Vorfe and Brooklyn, for (as he exptesses it) "their gener ous aid and accommodating favors, and the courteous usefulness they have all exemplified, in an excellent way, to aid the committee in their duties anil to henetit their readers and the country, hy their assiduous and accurate reports of the proceedings, and hy their wide and useful circulation of religious and missionary intel ligence, in connection with the meeting of the Board.?

Tney laugh ed at his threats, and defied hiru; hut they found out, to their sorrow, that he was equally prompt as courageous in the fulfilment ofhis promises, as ho subsequently gave to one ot the party such a thorough scourging,that none of the rest have since ventured to cross his tlireshhold. A prosecution for assault and battery was, however, threatened, hut as yet no complaint has been made at the Police Office. Runawav Horses.?On Saturday evening, n young and valuable horse, belonging to Caleb Smith Co., of Wa ter street, took fright while standing in front of their store, and ran up Fulton street in a most furious man ner, to the great danger of several persons who were passing along.

The ( onfcrcnce, however, was not willing to recogniso him as its presiding officer, and adopted a resolution by an almost unanimous vote, expressing it as inexpedient and highly improper for Bishops who have separated them selves from the jurisdiction of the Methodist Episcopal Church, to preside in any conferences composing said Church.

Trial for Fahe Prelencet.?Lorin Jones, indicted for obtaining goods amounting to $680, from the firm of Messrs. Warded and Wasson, on tho 10th of September, 1844, by false pretences, was then placed upon trial.

Whitcomb it Co., No. 72 Wall street, who intimated that ho was re sponsible and would give him credit for two or three thousand dollars. On the part of the prosecution, Mr. Wasson deposed to the foregoing lacts, and thus the goods were despatched to Bultalo on his account; that on theif arrival thither, they were sent to an auction store, and sold lor cash at a discount of twenty-five per cent. On the notes becoming due they were dishonored. On one of the notes being dishonored, witness proceoded to Buf falo, but found no goods in Jones's store, nor could wit ness get any money from him. Jones also told witness that lie had'no longer any property at Little Kails, having disposed of it. On returning to the city witness also found Whitcomb's store closed. John Pea arc deposed that he was in the employ of Jones ut Buffalo, at the time the tea and coffae were sent to auction. Jones told witness that he di'1 not wish it to heknown in NewYork that he had sent the goods to auc tion. Witness ulso deposed that Jones was in debt in September 1844, hut to what amount he could not state; that Jones had likewise informed him that he had about $1,600 worth of property at Little Kails, besides some debts. In tho early part of December Jones made an as signment of property te'a man named Shaw, as security for a promissory note for $700. Mr. N. K. Plvmton, auctioneer, was called. He de posed that he sold the tea arid coffee in October, which was delivered by Mr. Shaw; some of the bags and chests bore the same marks as those delivered to Jones by Waddellit Wasson. Mr. Peahcf. recalled?Jones applied the proceeds of sales to pay his debts,which he seemed desirous to liqui date. Edwin Delano, merchant of .this city deposed, that in September 1844,he sold a bill of goods amounting to $933 to Jones on credit, Jones stating that he was solvent and had $3,000 worth of goods in his store at Buffalo, and also gave Whitecomb St Southworth as a reference. On the notes becoming due, tbey were dishonored. Jacob Hoi-pock, of this city, deposed that, in Septem ber 1844,be sold Jones a bill of goods amounting to about $3,200 on credit. Before the notes became due, witness heard that Jones was selling out his goods by wholesale, and went to Bultalo in December. On arriving there he found the storeiempty, and that the goods delivered to him hail bee sold at a discount of about thirty-three per cent?that the notes given by Jones and endorsed by Whitcomb it Co. wore not paid.

Thin was an action of trespass, to recover the value of a sleigh, the property of plaintiff, which was upset and da magi'd by the defendant's horses, during a sleigh excur | mou in the month of February last. Tt appeared that Wood hired out to a party named Hurly a sleigh and two horses on the occasion referred to, when he took a drive in the direction of 47th street and tiie Fourth avenue, ill company with some ladies,and on his route was uncere moniously upset by defendant's sleigh and horses, in a collision which took place; the horses of Tucker having become restive, and in running away having come in contact with the plaintiff's sleigh The absence of proof as to wilful neglect or design, in evidence, having shown the true nature of the case, the jury returned a verdict for plaintiff,six cents damages and six cents costs. Before Judge Ulshoeffer. Si: pt. 16.? The Merchants' Bank ri. Elisha Peirick.? This was an action ol fraud, to recover the sum of $876 'JO, which it was alleged had been obtained from the ubove bank by defendant, through his having altered a check, which was drawn, merely as a memorandum check, by u party named McFariane, on the above bank, in May, 1844. It appeared that McFariane purchased a quantity of cheese from defendant, which ne intended lor shipment to England; and by the terms of sale, the article was to be paid for between the 1st and 4th of May. The broker who conducted the sale, hereupon called upon McFariane for payment, when he (McFariane) re quired a.few days further time, for accommodation, in order to raise money on certain bills of exchange,which it was alleged he intended to draw against the snipment It was subsequently agreed, that McFariane should give his check or the Merchants' Bank, to be dated on the 6th and made payable on the 10th May, which check was marked memorandum. On the day the check became due, it appeared plaintiff sent his cierk to McF., who ex changed this oheck for another, which, being presented .?t the bank, the word " memorandum" not being written on it, was duly paid to bearer, though, as it appeared from the evidence, McFarlane's account had been clear ed lor nearly six months. The time the check was paid, it appeared the broker called on McF., and delivered to him a set ot bills of exchange, on the house in England to whom the cheese was consigned; but finding that the check was paid by the bank, returned the bills to McF. It was contended, on the part of the defence, that the check was not a memorandum check; and that If the hank paid it in error, they were bound to look to McFar iane for the recovery, and not from deiendant.
