The Fair anil Show of the state Agricultural Society will commence to-morrow, and lie continued for three da> s, hut it iR not expected that much will be dono he fore Wednesday. The ground-on which the fair will he held, is on tho larm of Mr. Junius 1'Iaut, about half a mile southwest of the city, and consists of ten acre, ol beautiful meadow, enclosed with u neat post and hoard feuco nine feet high ; aiound the euclosuie inside, is a range of pens built of bourds, three luet high, for tho use of such pigs, sheep, itc.,us may he sent tor exhibition ; a ihort distance iromthe westerly side ol the enclosure runs tho Cheuungo < anal from'.thick abundance of wa ter can ho obtained lor the use of the immense amount of stock, which it is expected will he present. Thele are three large buildings erected lor the exhibition of manu factured articles, and one equally large for the exclusive use of the ladies. On visiting the giound this morning, I hoard on every side the busy note of preparation, the grating noise of the suw, and tho tap-tup of tho active hammer ; the la dies who are always, (Jod bless them, foremost In the work of goodness, were busily engaged in making wreaths of evergreen foliage, with which their Moral Mail is to be decorated ; already their building presents a beautiful appearance, being canopied with festoons of evergreens in the most tasteful manner, and when finished, will bo worthy of a minute description In deed, if coming events cast their slmJows before, this will certainly eclipse all the exhibitions which have previously been made by the Society. No cattle, or implements of any umount have as yet arrived; hut it is expected that an immense quantity of both will come in tho course of to-morrow. The people of Utica are in great glee ut the very fair prospect there is oi a largo ainouut of money being ex pended in the city, it is computed that forty thousand persons will attond the fair, and it is u reasonable calcu lation that each of them will expend $5, in one way or other before he leaves, making $200,000 in one week; faith, that is enough to raise their spirits, and they are determined not to lot the opportunity slip, but to make hay while the sun shines, for in addition to the state fair, they have another ol their own, called the Mechanics' fair, Willi Welsh aud Mann's circus; juvenile concerts, theatrical performances at the Museum, and other en tertainments too numerous to mention, all having the sumo laudable object in view, the coaxing of cash out of the pockots of tho visitors. The Committee of Arrangements having seen each succeeding lair increase in interest and in the number of people who attend, have made tho most extensive and liberal arrangements, and to their credit and foresight edness be it said, that the press have not been overlook sw nuile cd; they have built a new building for the use of repor ters, and in their programme, say that each will take pleasure in giving them every facility in outer that their reports may be as correct as possible, an example wor thy of imitation in other places that 1 know ol. They have, in addition to the large building before spoken of, erected several others, which are rented to persons who uill sell edibles aud drinkables, but nothing of an intox icating description will bo allowed on the ground. Anti-Rent Affairs. [From Albany Atlas, Sept. 18.] Hcosorc, Monday, September 15, 1845.?The case ol the Pooplo vs. Houghton, which lias now occupied the court two weeks, still progresses, and a hope ot its termination ant day at some not distant day may now be indulged in. Up to Saturday last lour jurors only were obtained : to-day, however, three more were cmpannellcd, ma king the whole number of jurors sworn, seven. The prisoner's counsel waived bis peremptory challenges to these three jurors for some reason not altogether intelli gible. The jurors are men of intelligence and of the same stamp as those who have been heretofore set aside peremptorily,?hence the surprise. This morning, Judge kdmonds mentioned for the information of all concerned, that he had made arrangements in relation to the mat ters iu his own circuit, and consequently there was nothing now to interfere with the trial of this case at this time, if the county could provide a jury. The num ber of talesmen examined, as I am informed, is seventy seven, making with the panel heretofore exhausted, the number of 12b, out of which, luckily, seven have been sworn as jurors The prospect of empanelling a jury during the week seems exceedingly flattering. The glimmering of such an event has lighted uji the coun tenances of judges, counsel, and attending persons and witnesses. Tho prisoner's counsel has used ten ol hi* peremptory challenges, leaving ten more, which he will use with his usual sagacity. [From Albany Journal, Sept. 16.] Dbliii, Sept. 14, 1845.?Since 1 last wrote you, several prisoners have been arraigned, and some have plead guilty in part. The court have adjourned until next week. Most of the last week was occupied with the civil calendar. Interesting from Oregon.?The news from Oregon by way < 1 the Sandwich Islands, published yesterday, indicates the rapid progress etjthe settlement. The Legislature had been in session, and among its acts is noticed one to incorporate ?the city of Willamette at the falls on the Columbia. Party poli'.i s were already beginning to run high between the followers ol tho ii?j son Bay Company and the Americans. The latter had been greatly strengthened by the arrival of the emi grants from Missouri, and will now enjoy undisputed as cendancy. The British party is obliged to give way be fore the overwhelming tide of democracy. The arrange meats for the organisation of a government appear to have been conducted judiciously, and have received the sanction of the popular voice. It may bo expected that the colony will move steadily onward at a sure and stea dy pace. A few years only will be required to develope its political destinies. The settlement has ene element of prosperity which has hitherto escaped our notice, and that is, a good market for its produce and facilities in the way #f trade. The ltussiau settlements in the North, California, Mexico, Guatemala, Peru, in the South, and the Sandwich Islands in the West?all lie convenient to Oregon by sea, and present opportunities lor u varied and extensive commerce. Indeed, the eastern coast of Asia will he within trading distance, and the settlers in that region may seek a market for their Hour, and bacon, and lumber, or manufactured commodities in the ports of i tiina or the East indies. Every country washed by the Pacific Ocean will bo accessible. From this fact some idea may tie formed of the immensity of that field, on which N ankee enterprise is just beginning to expatiate Here are great advantages ior a new country. Notwith standing its remoteness and difficulty of access, it is not matter of surpiise that the tide of emigration has set so strongly in that direction. The facilities of commerce presented by the shores and islands of the Pacific, com bined with the agricultural facilities of the Oregon re gion, ore tempting inducements to an enterprising nation like the American ; and every coming year may he ex pected to swell the movement that is pushing our popu lation beyond the Hoeky Mountains.?A'.

Arrest of A Counterfeiter .?On Wednesday morning se'nnight, Oaptttin J. W. Pollock was ur restod at Wheeling, Vn., on tho chutgo ol having in Ins possession and passing ronn'erleit mouev, llo has been lor some time past actively engaged in Ins nvocatiun, and a sharp look out was had for turn. Certain information was conveyed to Mr. Jantes Murray, Marshal o! Wheel i"g, by whom the arrest of Pollock was made, just as lie was about leaving Ihutcily post haste. With him were two trunks and a valise. He acknowledged th#owner ship of the former, and gave up tho keys id'them, but dis avowed any knowledge of the latter. By searching his pockets, however, the key ol the valise was lound stuck far down in a comer of ore of them. On opening the valise, about *7000 of spurious loo's, AO's, JO1*, and lO'i, on the Planters' Bank ef Tennessee, was found in it.? Only 1600 dollars of them wero signed. On Pol lock's person was found 000 dollars good money. Tho other trunks belonging to Pollock, which were on the Pittsburgh boat, must have reached Wheeling some time on the day of his arrost. In these were probably found more of the paper and perhaps alio the plate from which it wns striiCK This plate, by the way, is geiiiiino. and was engraved in this city lust May, for thin Pollock, who

One oi the principal causes of | ! complaint, is the too frequent requisition made upon pa rents for the purchase ol books, the charges for which, in most instances, are so exorbitant ns to become a heavy tax upon those w ho avail themselves of the iuncied ad vantages of "free schools." The rivalry of authors?the > conflicting claims ol publishers, and the incessant plot ; tings of other interested persons, to obtain ascemtancy | with the managers and trustees of these places, create a 'never-ending tax upon the pockets of all who, for the sake of economy, choose to subject themselves to the sneers aad taunts of their rich and uristocratic neighbors, by sending their children to a "Common School." If ! such things bo long tolerated, other, and still more op pressive exactions will be made upon the community, j until these institutions become s nuisance and disgrace, instead of proud monuments of the intelligence and libe rality of a highly civilized and enlightened people. Ah live went.?At the Kulton Kerry, last evening, a curious incident took placo during the few minutes that we wero detained wuiting for the boat.

Murder Discovered.?About u year ago, a white man named McCoy, an overseer of Mr. Reedy, in the parish of ltapides, and a negro belonging to the same gentleman, disappeared suddenly. Circumstance.: have recently come to light, which reuderit certain thut they weie murdered by Indians living in that parish. The fol lowing is the story as related to a correspondent of the Had River Republican, by an old Indian, whose word, says the writer, may bo reliod on : An old friend and re lation of mine came to my house from Avoyelles, two days ago, to remain a short time, and while with me, I refuted to him the stoiy that you did to me, and inquired whether he had hoard any thing ol the matter; he repli ed yes, that the three Indians that committed the murder told upon themselves as follows: During the time of the last high wat ir of Red river, soy a year and n hnlf ago, one an Alabama, one half Alabama und Biloxi, and a squaw, wished to cross the river ut Reedy's, on Red riv er, for the purpose ol hunting 011 the opposite side of the river. Finding no other way of crossing, they picked their opportunity, and stole the skill belonging to the plantation. When about half over the river, they saw that some of the negroes had discovered them; however, they continued on their course, and nearly opposite Ree dy ? house they entered a small bayou that comes trom the pine hills?the distance not being far oil, they soon arrived at the loot ol the pino lulls, where they made lust their boat and strack cainf. On the next day, the two men set out on a hunt, and lindiug nothing else.they killed a small hog belonging to some person, and when in the act of roasting it, they discovered a boat coming towards them, costuining a tall white man and u ne gro. They continued on, and stopped by the side ol their boat. The white man was without a coat.? Coming on land llnit, lie inquired of the nearest Indian (the Alabama) how he canio to steal the boat ; the In dian, instead ol answering,presented his rifle at the white man ; but being near enough for the white man to seize the mui/.le of the gun, a scutile ensued, in which the white man was likely to prove too strong ; hut the In dian speke te the l'ijoxi and Alabama,saying, he is about gelling my gnu, shoot him quick ! at which the Indian not engaged, discharged his rifle, breaking the white man's arm. The two Indians then pulled the wlutc man into the water waist deep, intending to drown him ; in this, however, they found themselves foiled, when they spoke to the squaw to bring the hatchet ; she did so, and while the two men held him, she killed him w ith it. They all three then returned to the land, where stood tho negro very much frightened. He begged for his lile, saying that the white man brought him there, and'that he had no disposition to quarrel with them. Upon consultation with each other it was finally agreed that he might disclose the secret, and to prevent it, he w ns shot hy one of the Indians and dragged to the place where the first w as sunk.

The fiend was, however, permitted to go unpun ised (or awhile, on account of his victim being afraid to make known to her parents what had transpired ; and he would probably have escaped altogether, had the mis chief ended here, but the facts connected with the case were biought to light in consequence of the girl having contracted a disease at the time of her involuntary con nection with the accused.

Before Judge Ulshoeffer. S i ft. 17.?Merchants' Bank, 4*C. vs. Klihu Pedrick.? This case, already noticed, was resumed, when counsel summed up, and his Honor charged. It has been hitherto held that m cases where the word ?' memorandum" is written on the margin of a check, that such check is not considered negotiable at the Bank, but as evidence of indebtedness. This action was institutedbythe above bank to recover damages fsom the defendant for an alleged fraudulent alteration of a check drawn by a party named William .Macfarlaud, with the intention of defrauding the hank. Macfarland was introduced as a witness, and testified that on the 6th of May. 1844, he gave the delendant a memorandum check for fiSTU 90, in consideration of a bill of cheese bought of said defendant by witness.? This check, it appeared, was made payable on the 8th of May, upon which day witness testified that he was una ble to pay, and gave defendant another check for the same amount upon the Merchants' Bank, dated Uth May, hut payable at order. It further appeared that on the 11th of May tho check was presented at the bank by defendant, with tho word "memorandum," which was written at the top of the check, trimmed off, and was paid by the teller, although Macfarland had no funds in the bank at the time. Macfarlandfalso testified that the check was ulterod after he gave it~ to defendant. Subse quently tho discount clerk of the bank went to defen dant, told him Macfarland had no funds in bank, his ac count having been closed for several months; that the check was paid by mistake, and requested him to refund, which he refused to do, and said the bank must look to Macfarland. Defence put in was that Macfarland bought the cheese for cash, to be paid on the 1st of May; that he subse quently got until the 1st and 4th of May, to tHrn around and tell bills of exchange drawn against the cheese, and that he did reali/.e 4.100 on said cheese, on a bill of exchange diawn against Robinson <k Co., to whom it was shipped. Not being pay on the 4th inst,Mac farland gave the first memorandum check, and on the 8tb gave in its place the check in suit. It was shown, however, by a clerk of defendant, that the latter was not a memorandum check, but was given in the same condition precisely as shown in Court. * The Court charged that as regarded the legal effect of the word "memorandum," which, it was alleged, had been appended to the check, the fact of its being written or not, did not affect the merits of the case one way or the other. There was nothing in law to invalidate such an instrument as a check on a bank as negotiable paper, whether tho word memorandum was written thereon or not. The jury had to consider whether the check w as at all altered; and next, if so altered, was it done fiaudulently and by defendant; but, whether the word "memorandum" was written or not on the check in question, the jury had to decide according to the law, which recognized no distinction between the ordinary and the memorandum check.
