Philadelphia, 7th June, 1829. Dssa Sin?When I first contemplated leaving New I York a few day's I promised to write you occasionally. Of course I consider the promise still good. I hive been part of three days here, and have mixed a Igoo I deal with the leading Jackson men. They received I tho uecount of the Union of the Enquirer and the Courier | with " utter astonishment." So they told me in expiesa | terms. They cannot conceive how the party in New York can I repose confidence in Mr. VYebb. Suoh is the sentiment 1 here I ehnll write you again from Washington. In the Imeantime, will yon do all you can about the paper? ' Spur up Butler, lor he wants it. 1 am, Dear Sir, yours truly, JAMES <J. BENNETT. No. II. Mr. Bennett to Mr. Hoyt, at Mew York Per mail. Washington, 11 June, 1839. I T'Dear Sir?I arrived hero the day before yesterday. I called on Mr. Van Buren and Mr. Ingham. They are both in favor of the new Democratic paper or the old one renovated. The feeling against the coalition runt I about as strong here as in New York They knew it would he corrected by the public men in New York. Major Mcoie of Kentucky is here He bring accounts from the west that some movements are making of a curious nature between Judge McLean (late postmaster) and Mr. Clay. 1 have picked up a good deal of political information of various kinds, which l.shall tell you in New York. I am goiDg to call on the President to-day. I am, Dear Sir. yours truly, JAMES O. BENNETT. No. III. Mr. Bennett to Mr. Ifot/t. Post mark, Philail. 13 June, (1833-] Address, Jesse Hoyt, Esq., Counsellor at Law, New York. Dkah IIovt ?You will sec by tbe papers vshat we are about here. My object is to mako the party come out for a National Convention. It can he done by prudence, skill, and address. In relation to what I talked to you In New York, I have an earnest word to say. I really wish that my friends there would try to aid me in the matter I formerly mentioned. Morrison I fear will do nothing. John Mumlord has been aided to the extent of $40 000. With a iourth of that sum 1 would have done twice as much?soberly and with some decency too. I should he sorry to lie compelled to believe that my friends in New York should bestow their friendship more effectually upon a dr en fellow than me, who certainly hat aome pretensions to decency. 1 em sorry to apeak harshly of any body, but really I think there is something like ingratitude in tbe way I hare been treated. I want no favor that I cannot ronay. I want no aid that is not perfectly safe. I should like to hear fr -n you, if there it any likeli hood of my success. Youra, Itc., J. GORDON BENNETT. No. IV. Mr. Hoyt to Jainet G. Bennett. June 14. Mr Dear 8ir?I received your letter. You will see liy the Si andard of this morning that you are under amis apprehension in relation to what has been done here. I do not know what will he the result of that business. If I had the means I should not hesitate to do all for you that is required, hut 1 do not find aDy one here among all our friends, that are willing to put their shoulders to the wheel. All aie anxious for honors and emolument from patty, but are not willing to give the equivalent for it. I do not believe that any thing can be done for our paper here, or for yours either. Those who are tho best utile will not contribute a farthing?I conversed with several of tnat description to-day. The enthusiasm with which the President has been re ceived exceeds all calculation. Yours truly, J. HOYT. No. V. Mr. Hoyt to Jumrt Q. Bennett. New Yon?, July 11,13, Dear Bennett I was asked this morning to mako a selection by my friends, the Mohawk Rail Road Co. (or the President thereof) of two newspapers in the "clean city" as Uie best vehicles of communicating tbe fact of the immense accommodation they could bow givo to the travelling public. 1 selected "-2 "good society papers," that is, yours and Mr. Walsh's. You will find the advertisement in the standard ol to-morrow morning, or in the Gazette of this morning, which 1 want you to copy 10 duyi in succession. I wish jou would"write a short paragraph to call the attention oi your readers to it. I have road the lliOOO undone toasts published by you, and 1 perceive the friends of Mr. Mckean fought hard. Wo had nothing ot the kind in this quarter. We are all for temperance, and toasts over cold water is an up-hill business. Yours, t-.uly, J. HOYT. J. G. Bennett, Esq. No. VI. Mr Bennett lo Mr. Hoyt. P'm'k Alb'y, July 20. Address, "Jesse Hoyt, Esq., Counsellor at Law, N. Y." Albany, 20th July, 1829. Dear Sir Since I arrived here I have seen our friends in the ?1rnu$ office and State department?I mean Major Elagg, Mr. Wright, and Mr. Crosswell. They are very friendly, but they suy they have heard little of our local matters in Now York, consequent on the sale of the Enquirer, with the exception of a passing remark from Mr. Cam brelerg as lie parsed through here a few weeks ago. They speak in the highest terms of Mr. Barnum, and as sum r..c (hat he is every way capable for tho position in New York. 1 am sorely puzzled to know what to do. Although our friends hare think it a very iavorable op Cortuimytostaita new paper, yet they think it a very azardoui experiment. They told me te-d?y that if the party haJ the control of the poiiticul courso of tho Cou rier and Enquiritr, it would be more eligible than a new paper. This they think could be done by placing an editor there under the auspices of the Goneral Committee ? an editor who would take care of the inteiests of the party and his friends. They are afraid that the political patronage is not sufficient for the support oi a new paper, and they are of opinion that a journal which now en joys all such patronage as the Courier and Enquirer ought to give up its columns to a political editor ap pointed by the General Committee. 1 wish you could get me out of these contradictory views and opinions. If jou and Mr. Oakley, and Mr. t'oddington, and a few other of our friends could settle what course I shall take pre vious to my return, I do not care what it is?1 shall adopt I it?I know it will bo a proper course. Wbich is the j best ami cheapest mode of expressing tbe views of the party 7 A new or an old paper ? I shall be impatient for action when I return. Now is the time to sow the set seed This is tho spring of politics. The birds are beginning losing. I cannot resist those influences, aDd if you set y ouiself to work, I know y ou can accomplish the matter to a T. Do not call me a heretic, and a trifling fellow, because 1 have spoken thus much of C. and K. If it be heresy, then undoubtedly must head quarters be in a bad way. On the evening before I left Now York, I received a letter informing me that the Herald intended to publish on Saturday morning last this?" The last rallying point " ird, hv the of the Republican Party has been surrenderd, by tTie" pur chase by the Courier of the services and prospects of the gentlemen who were to have published tbe M. Y. Stale Enquirer, he. Ike. Stc " I went to the office of the Herald ami told them it was untrue, and forbid its publi cation. ftnowden will tell you the whole story. It ap pears that Mumlord went to tho Herald and told them the story. You can see in this the finger of our friend But ler and Elisha Tibhetts probably, who want to mako as much mischie! as possible, i hope old King caucus will remember them. 1 shall write nothing for the C. and E. during iny tour?ibat you requested to do. Tell Mr. Oakley that my next letter 1 shall write to him probably from tiie Springs, 1 am, dear sir, yours truly, JAMES O. BENNETT. P. 8.?If you have any thing to say particularly in the course of this week, wiite to Buffalo to me. P. 8.?Mr. Croswell thinks that under the present clr cumstancos the Republican General Committee can mako their own terms th Webb and Tyloe. Would not a private meeting 1 our friends on the subject be a good first step 1 vo. VII. I'HU ADtLrNK, 57th July, IMS. Dear Hoyt. -1 have written to Van Buren to-day about the old affair. 1 mint have a loan of $5500 for a couple ) of yenrs from aome quarter. I can't get on without il - and if the common friend* of our cause?those I have been working for 8 )ear? -cannot do it, I must look for it somewhere else. My business here is doing eery well end the money would be peifectly safe in two years. You see already the effect produced in Pennsylvania? we can havn the State But if our friends wont lay aside their heartlessness, why, we'll go to the Devil-that is all. There ia no man who will go further with friends than I will?who will sacrifice more?who will work harder, you know it very well. I must be perfectly independent ol the little sections in thin city, who would hurry me into their small courses at the risk of the main object. Kendall leaves Washington to-morrow on his tour of Bank Inspection. Let me hear irom you. yours, Ac. JA'8 OOllDON BENNETT. No. VIII. Mr. II?yt la Jamr? O. Jimnrtt. Nkw York , Aug. 5, 1h83 Mr Dkar Sir I received yeur letter of 57th ult., and have omilted In make u reply till now, under the hepe that I could tell yon that something could be done. I have made the ef fort to accomplish what you dosired, hut I have been un successful There is s perfect lethargy prevailing now, which will not bo removed till sometime near the "ides ?1 .November." You must persevere, for eventually you will not only succeed, but will be placed in a situation gratifying no doubt to Tour ambition, as woll as your comfort. Your paper is growing in public sstimation, though some of us hole do not like the turn you give to the ' ilepoeit question.' I do not know, sod ceitainly do not care, what la done on that subject, further than I desire the administration should do what the publio, (by which I mean the people,) would Justify and require. I saw Mr. Dusno while he was hero, as msnv others did. The impression he left is a voir Ihvorabfe one, as it always will he wherever he goes. 1 do not know what you will think of us, when I say we ha?e not been able to comply with your wisher-personally I will do all that I can?but yo\j know probably that my means are very limited, and you also know, that those who are the best able, and have the greatest interest in such matters, a e the slowest to do their duty. But as 1 said before, persevere, the time will come when you will not have to request lavors?if 1 judge rightly from your present po sition?this is so. Yours, truly, J. HOYT. No IX Mr. Bennett to Mr. Hoyt. (Post mark. Philadelphia. Aug 8) Address?Jesse Hoyt, Esq , Attorney at Law, New York. Philadelphia, 3rd Aug., 1833. Dear Hott:? I am extremely sorry at the result of your efforts. The effect is inevitable: I must break down in the very midst of one of the most important contests which Vau Buren's cause ever got into in this State. 1 do not see how 1 can uvoid it. With every advantage in my favor?with every preparation made?every thing in the finest trim to check-mate and corner ail the opposition to Yan Bui en, and to force them to come out in his favor?as I know thay must do soon? I must give way to the counsels of tliore who have most hostile feelings to the cause?and on what ground! Be c use neither Mr. Van Buren nor his friends will move a finger in my aid. I must say this is heartless iu the ex treme. I do not wish to use any other language than what will convey mildly the anguish, the disappoint ment, the despair, 1 may say, which broods over me If I had been a stranger to Mr. Van Buren and his friends? if I had been unknown?if I had been blest in being a blockhead?1 ?? ight not have got into my present posture ? nor would I have expected any aid from your quarter. But after nearly ten years spent in New York, working night and day for the cause of Mr. Van Buren and his friends; surrounded, too, as I have been, with those who were continually talking against him, and poisoning me to his prejudice, the treatment which I have received from him and his friends during this last year, anil up to this moment, is as superlatively heartless?and if! could use any other word more expiessive of my sentiments 1 would?as it is possible to couceive or imagine. By ma ny of thoae whom I have supported for years, I have id revilei been suspected, slandered, and reviled as if 1 had been in bitter hostility to Mr. Van Huien for years, instead of supporting him through every weather, and eveu sacri ficing myselt that 1 might retain the same feelings to wards him?for 1 assure you I might have continued my connection with the C. &. E. last yoar, very much to my advantage?retained my share in the printing office of that establishment, if I had not iffered with Mr. Webb on the points that you know so well of. I sold out, how ever. to Hoskin?saved a small pittance from the wreck of the Globe?came here and invested it in toe lJsnnsyl vanian, which is now entirely under my control, provi ded 1 could find a friend any where between heaven and earth to help me along, and enable me to carry out my lived purpose in favor of Van Buren und his friends. But that friend God has not yet made, though several of the opposite character the other gentlemnn has put his brand upon, and fondly says " this is mine." I except you, dear Hoyt?lam sure yeu would help the cause if you could. I find no fault with you, although what fault you find with me about the deposits is non sense, and only a clamour raised in Wall street by a few of the jeulotis blockheads hostile to me, who have not brains to see that in this city we can use the deposit question very efficiently in the October election 1 do not blame even the jealous blockheads or any others in New Vork?I blame only one, and that is the Vice Presi dent himself. He has treated me in this matter as if I bad been a boy?a child?cold, heartless, careless, aud God knows what not. By a word to any of his friends in Albany he could do the friendship I want us easily as rise and drink a glass of Saratoga water at the Springs. He chooses to sit still to sacrifice those who have supported him in every weather?and even hardly to treat me as one gentleman would treat another. I scarcely know what course 1 shall pursue, or what I shall do. 1 am beset on all sides with importnuities to cut him?to abandon him. What can 1 do 1 What shall Idol 1 kuow not. You will excuse this letter?you can easily appreciate the situation of a man confident of success if properly supported -but nothing before him but the abandonment of his deliberate purposes or a shameful surrender of honor and purpose, and principle and all. Yours truly, J. G. BENNETT. I do not know whethor it is worth the while to write to Van Buren or not -nor do 1 care if you were to send him this letter. No. X. Philadelphia, 15 Aug't, 1883. Dear Hovt?I have not hoard from you for a week. I hope that my old friends?if I ever had any?which 1 begin to doubt?will not forget what I have heretofore done, or what I may do. Do let me hear from you again for good and all at least. 1 am, Dear Sir, Yours, Stc. JA'S G. BEWNF.TT. No XI. Mr. Hoyt to Mr. Bennett. Avauit 16, IMS. I have not answerad yours of 3d, for various reasons. Among other reasons, 1 was quito too much provoked with you. It appears at the moment I was trying to fa vor you, the Penmylvanian was taking such a course as was calculated to thwart all iny efforts. Thero are but vory lew of our people, comparatively, that soe j our paper, and they havo to look for its character to the par ty papers here. And what,doe* the Pott and Standard say of it I 1 am not going to set myself up as the judge to decide who or which is the aggressor; hut I admit that an intelligent newspaper, edited any where in this country, ought to have kuownthat the Northern Manner and the Uoylettown Democrat are papers substantially hostile to the administration; but because it was not known to some of our " corps editorial " it was no rea son why you should quarrel with all of us?by which I mean all "the prominent Jackson papers, from the Jlrgua down. There is a wonderful coincidence between the course the Ptnnrylpanian threatens to take, and that tak en by the Courier $ Enquirer when it first began to se cede from the Jackson ranks. It began, you will recol lect, by assailing what was called the " Money Chang ers " You are about to commence " No. 1 ? New York Stock Johliiag, itc ,8sc., and ceitaiu expresses in the fall of ItfS'J." This lias all been published in the opposi tion papers, and they did not make much ol it; and there tore I should doubt whether a Aona fide Jackson paper could do better with It. If this was "intended for Mum ford, I could tell you reasons for letting hitn alone; if for Mr. Hone, there are similar reasons; but as lie is no frieml of mine, I speak only from general principles there is nothing to he gained by it?it mends nobody's principles, or impiovcs the morals of any one; but ra ther helps your enemies in their efforts to satisfy others that you are not " a reliable man," as the phrase is Tho Pott this afternoon, no doubt will call you bard names for associating " vinegar" with the complacent counte nance of my excellent and amiable?aye, amiable, friend, Croiwell. Doctor Holland, of the Standard, will ro write the same idea for to-morrow morning. All this is quite ridiculous ou ail sides; hut you will perreiTe it is the worst for you here?because the people read but one side, and that is the side against you. 1 suppose you think it is timo to have the moral of my talo, and it is this-that I can get no one to join me in rendering any aid, and my means alone ara wholly in adequate to render ycu any relief, and what I have writ ten you is but the essence of tho arguments that have met me at every turn. You havo heard me talk to Webb, by tne hour, of the folly of his being on the face of the record a friend of Mr. V. Buren's, and at the same time attacking his most firm and consistent friend : viz. the editor of the ?flrgtis; and you stand in almost the same attitude, and there nro many hero who believe that your friendship will end as Mr. Webb's lias. I will do you the justice to say, that 1 believe no such thing, but at the same timo I will exer cise the Iranknesa to suy, that the course of your paper Uya you open to the suspicion. I know enough of af fairs to know that you had high authority for the ground you have taken on the deposite question, and I tnougbt you managed the subject well for the meridian you are in. I waa t* lil by a person, a day or two since, that you would be aided from another quarter ; 1 could nut leurn how. But you ought not to expect my friend lit the noith to do any thing, not that he has an indisposition to do what is right, er that he would not serve a trie'd, hut ho is in th" altitude that requires the most lastidious re serve. The people are jealous of the public press, and ti e moment it it attempted to lie controlled, its useful ness is not only destroyed, but lie who would gain pub lic favor through its columns is quito sure to fell. I am satisfied the press has lost some portion of its hoi J upon public confidence; lecent developments have hsd a ten dency to satisfy the people, that its conductors, or many of them, at least are as negotiable as a promissory note. This impression can only he removed by a firm a Iherence to principle in adversity as well as prosperity. I can, my dear sir, only say as I buve before said to tou, he patient, " love them who persecute you." You have a great field before you, and it is impossible but you will succeed, if you are as I think you to be, honest, intelli gent and industrious. Truly yours, J. HOYT. N.

P'm'k Phil. 17 jtug. vldieett?Jent Hoyt, E?q.,.1tt'y at Law, A'eu' York I'HinsDELrma, 10 Aug. 1833 Dear lloyt?Your letter amuses ine. The only point of consequence is that oonveying the refusal. This is the best evidence of the deadly hostility which you all have entertained towards me It explains, too, the course of the Staudard and Post, in their aggressions upon me ever since I came to Philadelphia. '1 he name for auch a feeling in the breasts of those I have only served and aided at my own cost and ray own sacrifice, I tizzies me beyond example. I can account for It in no other way than the simple fact that I happen to have been born in another country. I must nut up with it as well as lean. As to your doubts and surmises about my luture course, rest perfectly easy?1 shall never abandon my party or my friends. I'll go to the bottom sooner. The assaults of the Post and Standard, I shall put down like the grass that grows. I shall carry the war into Africa, and "curst be ho who cries hold, enough" Neither Mr Van Buren and the Argus nor any of their true friends will or can have any leliow feeling with the men?the stockjobber*?who for tho last two years havo been trying to destroy my character and reputation. I know Mr. Van Uuron better-and I will Hand up In his defence, at long es he feels friendly to me. 1 will endeavour to do the best 1 can to get along I will go among my personal friends who ere unshackled as to politics or hank*, end who will leave mo free to act m a man of honor and principle Ho my deer Hoyt, do not loeo your deep on my account. I am certain of your friendship whatever the others may my or do I fear nothing in the shape of roan, devil, or new s paper?I can row my own boat, and if the Post uud Standard don't got out ol my wuy, they must (ink me ? that is all. If [adhere to the tame principle* and run hereafter ui I have dene heretofore, uud which 1 mean to do, recollect it it not so much that " 1 love my perse cutors" as that I regard my own honor and reputation.?

This town,you tire aware,ih situate on the bank of the Savannah, opposite the city of Augusta, Geo.? It is the terminus of the Charleston Railroad, and a place of considerable trade, as will be perceived by noticing the cotton 'market. Last year 60,000 bates were shipped from this place, besides various oilier articies of merchandise und trslfic from the country above. The Savannah river is at its lowest mark?drays i and carriages fording it with the greatest facility. I i do not know whether this town bears any resent- I blance lo that great city of the old world al ter which 1 it is named. I think not, however. II there is any peculiarity, it is decidedly Mexican, for two-thirds of the houses are placed gable-end to the street. The most singular love affair I have heard of in some time, occurred in this place a few weeks since. A man by the name of Graves, irom some where down east, came out here some months ago, and employed himself in the barber shop of Mr. Erasmus, a colored gentlemen, whose magic touch with a razor, by the bye, is almost certain sleep. The poor fellow seemed sadly dejected, and follow ed his business wi'h little inclination. On enquiry, it was found out that he wasdesjatrately enamoured of a little black nymph, who rejoiced under the soubriquet of Rose, the slave of a gentleman of . Augusta, being attacked on the subject, he con- 1 tested to the soft impeachment. In a lew days the l then owner ot Rose disposed ol her to go some where in one of the upper districts ot this S-tnte; and so swim as the poor barber. Graves, heard of the in tended departure of his dulcenea, his reason lied ! He wished to be sold to the owner ol Rose. Two weeks ago, Graves died u victim to Ins foolish and disgracelul p.ision? a maniac. Rose was, in a few days alter, the subject ot a ehamelul attack, as was supposed, ot several Irishmen. Her bodv was found floating in the Savannah, indecently and shockingly mutilated An affray occurred between two negroes last night, in Augusta, in which one received a blow with a piece of scantling, which will probably re sult in tieutli. Varieties. The ten manufacturing companies of Lowell, Ms. consume annually 12,000 tons of coal, 3.070 cords of wood, 72.649 gallons of sperm and 19,000 of other oil. Of the whole population of Lowell, 0,320 females and 2,915 males, together 9,235, are employed as operatives either in tne mills, or connected wilh other mechanical employ ments. There are 33 mills und about 660 houses belong ing to the corporations. The capital invested in manu facturing and,mechanical enterprises is$l2,000,000. Thete are made in Lowell every week l,4M,10# jards of cloth, or 75,969,000 ysrds per year. The cotton worked up ev ery year is 61,100 hales. The printed calicoes made an nually amount to 14,000 yards. The waj>c* paid out annually, nmountto more than $1,690,000, and the annual profit ol this immense business has been estimated ut the same amount, or about 12J per cent. West Jersey appears to be entering upon the busi ness of manuiacturing upon a large scule. Several woolen and other factories in the vicinity of Camden, have recently commenced working. The spirit of enter prits is loading to tho ostublishinoiit of several large cot toll factories in Burlington. There has already been shipped from Oswego, to Ohio and .Michigan,' 5000 barrels of apples to supply the crop cut oA'there by the frost. It is said any quanti ty of this Iruit can be sold at the port mentioned lor ship ment. It is rumored that a delegate toCongress will be sent during the next session, by tho settlers of Oregon. On Tuesday last, after leav ing the port of Green Bay, the steamer Great Western, Lapt. Walker, atruck ? snag, which caused her to leak to such a degree, that when she reached Milwaukie, it was found necessary to run her ashore. The degree of L L. D has been conferred by the trustees ol JeA'erson College, upon Hon. Henry Clay, of Kentucky. b.tld eagle flew on board the U S. ship John Adams, at sea, much fatigued. As poultry die rapidly at "le, and 1 sea, he lared well, not being eatable, and became very tame, walking aroundlrom mesa to mess, getting a crumb here and a drink there, lie is uow cousideied one ol the ciew,and attends to the furling of the ro> als. lie never left tlio ship until tlie l'liucetou anchored at I'ensacola, when lie alighted ou her crosa jack yard, took a search ing glaDce, saw all was right, as far as Uncle Ham was concerned, and returned to his own ship. Tlie singular part ol this occurrence it, that three foreign men-of-war are at anchor near the John Adams, and tnis republican bird will not visit eitherfofthem. Durd Patterson, Eeq has discovered upon thefann of John .McBarnes,in Schuylkill county, Pa, six miles north of I'ottsville, a superior quality ol limestone. This stone appears to be, says the Jinthracite Gazette, the same as that which is found in the South of Wales coal hasin. It exists here in large quantities. It is found ou the edge of the coai basin, where the red slate and yel low earth meet, and has been traced by Mr. Patterson for30 miles. This stone, upon trial, proves to be a Arit rate article for Auxing iron, and the discovery is of vast importance to this region. 01The Trial of Wm Johnson?The examination this {>er?on came on in Staunton, Monday see'n night. (treat excitement prevailed during the whole day At the ringing of the hell a great crowd ruihed to the (. ourt-house. each one being anxious to have the most fa vorable position. The court soon assembled, aud the pri soner was brought forth. The witnesses, principally fe males, were next produced. First came the poor girl whose wrongs were to be the subject of investigation ? she was ilreesed in the deepest mourning, and her face, which is the index of the heart, was full of nothing but her own suBerahle sorrow. She was sworn, and asked for her painful story, but her lips refused their office? not a word could be heard by either court or audience The magistrates lelt the bench, and clustering around her, with the commonwealth's attorney on one side, and the defendant's counsel, (Messrs. Baldwin and Harman,) on the other, asked her once more to proceed with her evidence. She then commenced her nariation in a whis per. wholly inauddile to any but those immediately around her. Though not a word could he heard, the in tensest interest continued to be felt, and the most solemn silence prevailed, and when the stern judges, mid the at torney lor tho commonwealth, whose loriltude is pre sumed to bo stiengtlieiied by long habit, and even the <ie fendant's lawyeis wore seen melting into tears ?the whole crowd wept with them, and scarcely an eyo was so sttungly nerved as not to y leld its tribute to the ocu sion. As tne examination uf the alflicted mother and seme ol the neighbor* proceeded, the feeling giew mote in tense, until it was almost uncootrolahle. When the trial was finished, the prisoner was remanded to await his fi nal trial, at the Superior Court, in November, and his un fortunate victim departed to her now desolate home, car rying with her the best wishes and the earnest sympa thies of all who saw her. Si Not j.ar Phenomenon on Lake Ontario.?On Saturday Inst a mom extraordinnry occurrence was noticed in the lake at this place, fshortly belote noon, some gentlemen walking on the wharf, happening to cast their eyes upou the water between the piers, were itruck with the very unusual appearance of a strong curient or tide, as it were, setting directly out to sea ? It seemed as if the whole lake were going bodily away.

We understand the some occurrence was noticed at other places on tho lake, and hear that at Pott Hope the effect waa so great that the steamboat Princes* Koyal conld not get into the harbor at all, i unning hard aground when more than her length out aide the entrance to the piers. The cause ol so ex traordinary a phenomenon ia at present a matter of varioua conjecture, but the general opinion seems to bo that it could only have been produced liy a violent earth quake in some part of the contineut, which we shall pro bably soon hoar of.?

Steele and Kdgerton rode down to the barn to read the advertisement; they were followed by Indians: they re turned, and the Indiana followed. Steele and Kdgerton took up their position as befoie, at the bars, and I be tween them, I talked with them about adjourning the sale; it was thought best to commenue, and bid off'at least one article; they told me to stand between them, aud they would protect me; I Anally told the sheriff' if the Indians would not permit bim to drive the cattle into the road, be had better adjourn tba sale, he weut in among them, saying he thought he could get them to do so. There was a platoon of Indians guarding the bars; I attempted to go in, saying I wished to see the sheriff'; they said I should not, and one of them placed his gun inlront; I put my stick against his breast, and pushing him back, lorced ray way among thorn. Steele and Kd gerton now rode in, the platoon of Indians fhlling back; as soon as they had got in about a rod, the command was given to "shoot the horses, shoot the horses;"' .Mr. Kdger ton, in a very loud voice, cried, "I command all parsons present to assist in preserving the peace." They formed a semi-circle about us; one of the Indians to 'he right of the circle shot Kdgorton's horse; three or four guns were fired in quick succession; I heard the weril Irom some of tbnm, "shoot bira," or "shoot 'em," which was repeated. Kdgerton's and Steele's horse* now reared and wheel ed round, their faces to the fence; a doren or Alteon guns were discharged in quick succession. Dui ing the Aiiug, I stept back towards the bars; saw Steele tailing from his horse about IA feet to the left of the bars, near the fence; his horse fell a short distance below; Kdgerton's horse fell near Steele; Sheriff More, Kdgerton and myself rush ed towards Steele, the sheriff oalling to the Indians to desist; we carried Steele up the road; he said be could not live more than a few minute*, at his bowels were all shot to pieces; Or.

The counsel for prisoner objected to this testimony. The Court overruled the objection. Elimination returned ?Steele died in consequence of his wounds; before we entered the bars Steele was using a toothpick; the Indian* said to him ' you'll chew some thing harder before night.'' Some of them remarked that there was no snow upon the ground,and that they could not be tracked; did not hear Steele sav anything to the Indians, or do anything. Alter Steele was shot, saw the Indians about the horses. The Court here took a recess for <1 nner. They met again at two o'clock, and the cross-exainiuatiou of last witness was proceeded with. Croat-examination.?fit- ele was armed with a pistol ; he did not fire to my knowledge ; have stated that Steele . tried to firo ; he might have fired once. Direct returned.?Did not see Steele have a pistol in his ' hand ; saw him raise his hand, but was not in a position ' i to see his pistol After lie was shot, some one came into { I the house and stated that Steele had fired first ; I contra dicted it; they persisted, and I asked Steel* if he had fired ; he aaid he thought be had once ; think Edgerton did not fire. Eraitcs 8 Edoestov, sworn?On the morning of the 6th of Aug Steele called on me, and said the Sheriff had requested me to asM?t in raising a posse ; 1 went to the sale at Earla's at request of the Sheriff ; we discussed the question in the village ell day as to the propriety oi taking a posse ; it was thought best for us to go alone ; Steele and mycelf arrived on the ground between one and two o'clock in the afternoon ; when within 60 or80 rods this side ol Earle's,three or four men disguised came out of the bushes shaking their heads and pointing their 1 guns; we took no notice of them; when arriving at the ban we found five Chiefs standing in Iront of ihe Indians In the road; one of them raised his gun and pointed at Steele, and cried halt; 1 replied we bad a right to ride in the road, and another chief atepping up told the first Chief to retire : as we passed along the line we heard the Indians say, "them's the men we i want"?" them's the chaps we want"?" we'll take care of tliem gray horses"?after we had passed to where Wright was, one of the Indians exclaimed, "them are our deputies, we'll take care of them." Oue of the i chiefs said. " Steele, you've been used as a gentleman, J but we'll take care of you now"?shortly afterwards one of them said, " we'll not shoot the cattle, the cattle are I ours?cattle belong to poor Indian?but we'll take care of the bidders," or something to that effect. One of the Indiaiia;standing in the road cried, " Steele, here's an In j dian alone, come and try to pull my cap off." One ol them said to Steele, (who had sandy hair,) " your head ; will be redder than it is before night." One said, " l'u | as leave die as not to-day." The counsel for prisoner now conceded that the state- , ment ol .V; Wnglit, the last witness, was substantially - correct, ana remarked that they ahouid not dispute any , of it except in relation to the firing. Examination continued.?When we got inside the bars, I heard one of the chief* say, "shoot the horses," when one of the Indians pointedhisgun. I raised my haud and said, " I command every one present to assist me in , keening the peace;" the Indian came towards me and firea, the bullet took effect in the right breast and my sauarol nthor aKrifn ti'ftre fir*/) on/1 flfooleV i horse reared; several other shots were~ftred, and Steele's i hoise was shot, reared and went forward, he turned j round and stopped at the fence at the left hand of the bars; I recollect seeing Steele attempt ; to raise his arm; at this time there was a tremendous volley, and then another; I thought at that time that Steele fired; if he did fire, it was during the se cond volley; at this time my horse received a fatal wound, and I jumped fiom the saddle; Steele fell from his horse, striking the fence; there were a few guns fired after this; my impression was they were firing at me; I I raised my hand and exclaimed, " every man engaged in . this transaction is a murderer;" the Sheriff said, " men. ' desist, you've done enough." 1 think some guns were firad in the direction where Mr. Wright was, though I ' could not see him distinctly; as I got through speaking, a loud voice was heard to cry " halt!" and a chief hften the muzzlo of his gun in the air ; the firing in stantly ceased. While the firing was going en I heard them say, " hit him," " hit him;'' 1 also heard somebody say, during the time, "spectators leave the ground.' The spectators were in th? road, on the opposite fence j aud hill; they got out of the way of the firing; 1 did not ! lire on that occasion; Steele was cool throughout; showed no excitement whatever. Before going for a physician. ' after Steele had been carriecj to the house, I went aftei my saddle; saw several Indians, who pointed their guns at me. This witness corroborated the testimony of last witness. Crott-examined.?When Steele fell, his horse was in motion: my horse was shot first; I had my pistol in my hand; there was a great deal of confusion; some of the ludiaus ran away as soon as the firing commenced; stop ped at Andes with Steele, on the wuy down, at Huntley'? j tavein; did not drink anything.

Annexed is the sentence passed upon Dr. Bough ton by Judge Edmonds, at Hudson, ou Tuesday.? We published exclusively the result of the trial in yesterday's Herald.:? judge's sentence. Smith A. Boughtou, you have been arraigned and tried on a charge of robbery, and a jury, almost of your own selection, have found you guil ty ol the charge. You have had a very fair tml. The jurors were selected with great care, two weeks having been spent in subjecting tnoir opinions to the severest scrutiny, and you have yourself afforded the best evi dence that they were eminently impartial. You have been allowed to go at large, and fully to prepare your defence. You have been defended by able counsel.? You have been surrounded by numerous triende, and every item of evidence which you or they deemed ma terial to your defence, you have been allowed to lay be fore the jury. You have been, notwithstanding, con victed, and it now only remains for the court to paex sentence upon you. Your offence, though in form it is presented to ua as robbery, is in fact high treason, rebellion against your government, armed insurrection against the supremacy of the laws.? Until you cume among them, the tenantry on the Manor, were, in outward deportmeut at least, whatever might have been their feelings, a quiet, orderly, law ob serving people, yourself suffering none of the evils of the tenures of which you complained ; you came here a volunteer from another county. If j ou had confined your operations within lawful and peaceable bounds, Sou would doubtless have encountered, end perhaps een aided by the sy mnathy of many wise and good men, to whom the evils of those tenures are as apparent as they were to you. But such was not your purpose. You came accompanied by a band of armed ana dis guised men ; you eaily nvowod your intention to resist the execution of the laws. A man of education, you well understood your duty to your country, yet when remonstrated with on the impropriety ot yourcourse, you admitted that you knew it to be wrong, yet you avowed your intention to persist in your measures of resistance, because thus alone you could attain your end. Possessed of a species of popular eloquence, you made your appeals to the interest ot the tenants, by- holding out to them the prospect of exemption from the payment of rent. To the more lawless and depraved among them, you held up, by means of the disguises which you were the first to introduce among them, the hone of im punity for any crimes they might commit. You thus enlisted in your service several hundred men, whom you publicly paraded in different Darts ot the county, armed and disguised. And you publicly notified them to meet you on the appointed day, armed and equipped, to resist the Sheriff in the discharge of his duty, when that of ficer arrived at the village of Cojiake, in the peaceable line of his duty, you placed yourself at the head ot your armed band, and with pistols cocked an swords drawn, you captured him. You warned hirr not to proceed, but avowed that you had thus met to resist him, and that you intended to do so even to the shedding of blood. You held him a close prisoner for several noun. You sur rounded him with your armed associates, and finally, with your pistol presented to his breast, you compelled him to surrender to you the legal process which it was his duty and his purpose to execute. Not content then to disc.hnige him, but most fully to manifest your con tempt of the law and its process, you kept him your pri soner until, in his presence, and that ol the multitude whom you had assembled there, you burned the papers of which you had thus robbed him. You afterwards, surrounded in the same manner, publicly avowed that vou and they were thus armed iu order to resist the l Sheriff and his i.u-sa, in any attempt tfl arrest you for he ciime you hid committed. And you cafried out your purpose by calling uoon your associates to stand by you, when lie came to arnisl you, by can ing yourself to be rescued from bis custody, and by yourself presenting a lo . led pistol at bim, and threatening to snoot him with it. t'nderthe impulse which you have thus given, and in imitation of your example, peaceable inhabitants have been driven iroin their homes at night. Houses hive been torn down, latins laid Wusto ?the laws forcibly re sisted, and the odicers of justice fired upon and wounded while in the discharge of their otbcfil duty, t'uese offences, serious as (hey are, have been aggra vated by the recklessness wi'h which you have persisted in pressing upon the court and jury testimony which you know to be false You nave been the leader, the active iust.gator, the principal fomenter, ol all tbi ae disturbances, t ou have made yuuisett an example ot dis order and violence, and you have caused many erring and misguided men to fi llow ir, to tl.eir luin and the dis turbance ot the publio peace You hare, therelore, ren dered it necessary that the court stiould cause you to be a warning example of the certain consequences of such conduct-that your misguided followers and all others may learn Horn your late the impoitaul lesson that order must be maintained, tlie laws must be enforced. Deeply as we inay feel for tbe ruin wnicli you havo brought upon J ourself and those connected w nh you, our duty tt-uche* us that lorbear itice lowuids you now, when such forbearance towards you hereioloie, has only led you ou to acts of more aggravated outrage, would be cruelty to the ignorant men whom you have misguided, and to the community which you have so deeply iujured. K'ou ate. therelore, to be withdrawn for the residue of your life from the aoc.ely whose peace you have so wan tonly disturbed, and whose law* you have 10 violently aud so frequently violated, In the confident hope, that from the example of your tall, all may learn the salutary lesson that the supremacy of the laws must and will be maintained. The sentence of <ne Court is that you be confined in tbe state prison in tbe county of Clinton, at hard labor, for the term of your natural life. LESSONS LV LANCING, WALTZING, vtee. MAD.
