Further Extracts from our Foreign Papers. The reformation in Germany appears to be mak ing rapid advances. The Greek government is taking measures lor the suppression of duelling. In order to facilitate the commercial relations be tween the Kussiun empire and the kingdom of Po land, the llussiun government has diminished bv one-fourth the duty on certain goods, particularly woollen cloths and cassimeres ot all descriptions. The Prussian government has instructed its dele gate to the congress ol the Zollverein to agree to the increased duties on manufactures. The Scientific Congress about to assemble at Kheims, promises, it is said, to he well attended; many persons of scientific distinction, both native and foreign, have announced to its president, the archbishop, their intention to take a part in its dis cussions. The deposits in the savings banks of Paris conti nue to be in amount enormously beneath the sums withdrawn?a fact which, it is said, may be more fairly ascribed to investments nnd speculations in railroads than to any great falling ofl'in trade. France is about to prohibit the printing ol pirated foreign works within its territories. Mr. Lyell has, we understand, left England for another tour of the United States?having been en gaged by the Alpha-Beta-Kappa Society of Boston, una other learned institutions of America, to deliv er a new course of lectures on Geology. According to an article in the Medical Timet, dry air is prejudicial, and humidity beneficial to con sumptive p.tientu. King Oscar, of Sweden, has entirely won the heartaof his people by equalizing the law of marriage and inheritance, despite the opposition of the no bles. A letter from Fnburg, of the 15th ult. in the Frankfurter Journal, states that two shots were fir ed at Meran, in the Tyrol, at the King of Wurtem burg, but lortunately without hitting him. Some fanatics have been preaching at Exeter to immense audiences, announcing that the end ot the world is fixed for the 10th of Ociober. Madrid was tranquil on the 10th ult. The Three per Cents ^closed on that day at 32J for cash ; and the Five per Cents at 22.}, at 60 days. At the beginning of the present month there were disturbances in the Duchy of Brunswick, between the military and the people, during which one man wus killed and several wounded. The Gazette Ue Cologne states that the negotia tions between the Zoliverein nnd Holland have en tirely failed, owiug to the combined influence of France and England. A letter received at Lloyd's, from their agent at Sulonica, of the 27th ult. mentions a report ol pi rates having been met with in the neighborhood ot Skyros. The expense of the fetes given upon the occasion of the Queen's visit to the Rhine, is stated in the Get man papers, to amount to 5,000,000 1 runes (?200,000). The musicians alone were paid 40,000 lrancs. Four new Roman Catholic bishoprics are about to be established in China, in the cities thrown open to Europeans by the treaty of Nankin. The Owknites?Tne Social Institution in John street, Tottenham-courtroad, is defunct, like its late prototype in the Bluckfriars-roud. The building changed hands last week. Its members and finan ces have been slowly dwindling down till they are considerably in debt, so that the neighborhood is, at last, free from that vile fraternity. The building, which is very commodious, is now turned into a " Mechanics' Institution." It may also be men tioned that the Socialists (about six years since) ex pended about ?30,000 in buying land and building a hall in Hampshire. Harmony Hall the place was called, and the Owenite principles were there car ried out to the fullest extent; this has failed like wise, and in a lew weeks' time all will coine under the hammer to pay the loans granted at the com mencement of the undertaking. Steamship Great Britain.?The mammoth steamship, which the enterprising proprietors of the Great Western have built lor the passenger trade between this |>ort and New York, having now com pleted her first outward and return voyage, we have deemed it our duty to inspect her thoroughly, with the view ol communicating to tne scientific world such information as we are aware is eagerly sought with regard to the result of this vjpt and im|iortant problem in marine architecture and navigation. The experiment of building of iron a ship of three thou sand live hundred tons, and of adapting a steam powr of one thousand horses by an entirely new arrangement of machinery, to propel her by means of that novel instrument, which is called a screw, (but wnich our readers will better understand by considering it us approximating in form to a wind mill with six arms,) the whole involving, as we are informed, an outlay of little short of one hundred and liiiy thousand pounds, was so bold and original that, while we admire the conruge which ven tured to undertake it, we most heartily congratu late her owners, captain, and constructor, on the complete success winch has attended her voyage. On her rounding to oil"the Coburg-Dock, on Mon day morning, we observed that a portion ol the screw, probably rather more than one foot in height, appeared above the water ; this, we are inlormed, was occasioned by the great weight ol the cargo in the fore-hold, which as the coal brcame consumed, brought her down by the head, and put her conside rably out of trim. To this, und to the bad quality ol the American coal supplied to her, may be attri buted much of the increased length of her voyage, and both ol these causes will, we understand, oe remedied in future by omitting to bring such heavy cargoes, and by nroviding the coal of- this country. On gaining her deck, and conversing with some ol the ollicers and crew, we were told that in some very heavy head winds and high seas she had en countered, es|iecially oil the outward voyage, she had behaved particularly well, rolling rather deep, easily, and without any straining or jerking; scarce ly pitching at all, and tukingno water on deck. To onr eyes, the deck und rigging, (except the main topmast, which had been carried away in a gale) the airy promenade decks, and the splendid saloon, with Us thirty-four Sienna marble columns, appear ed just in the same state us when we bade her adieu on her leaving the Mersey. We examined the car pentry work, hut could not find any symptom ol working; and, in answer to our inquiries, were as sured that the absence ol the usual tremulous mo tion, creaking of bulkhends, or, in tact any yield ing whatever, excited the astonishment of seve ral naval and other passengers accustomed to these voyages. We next vtsired the sjw cious and elegant " engine-room," so unlike similar apartments in any other vessel we have ever seen. The chief engineer uppe&rs to be a very steady, cool, thoughtful man, expressing the most perfect confidence in the accurate working ot the niHssive machinery under his command, which he said had worked the entire outward voyage to "soundings," without being onee stepped, and, af ter working in a similar manner, without a pause, back to England, required, literally, no rejwir. So harmonious are the properties of the crank, connect ing rods, eccentricities, and other parts ot these en gines, that, ut lir.-t gin nee. their size does not appear large, buton nieasu ing their diameters, and study ing their enormous .nasses and weights, the convic tion steals upon one that they are really of excessive magnitude. The novel mode of turning the screw shaft with three times the velocity of the engines, by means of four substantial pitched link chains, aj> I*ears to have been quite successful, as they have not yet lengthened by the wear, and work even more quietly than at first. The "screw" also has stood uie voyage well, and looks as it did when we in spected it in the Graving Dock. It is said, how ever, to have scarcely suflicient surface?a defect which will he remedied in the one which is now be ing constructed tor her at Bristol. In short, the pro blem of profiling by meansof the screw on ocean [Krom Bel 1 "s London Weekly Messenger. I CECRKT EXPEDITION TO THK GULP OP MEXICO ? i ur ?overnmt-nt has made a movement within the lust three weeks, which must he confessed to he as vigorous as it is secret, hut which we hope may end as well as it has been commenced This measure is in substance as follows:?It is confidently retried among persons whose station and intelligence entitle them to credit, that when the protest and declaration of the Mexican government against the annexation of Texas reached London, and was officially communicated to our government py tne Mexican Minister, orders were immediately issued to our naval commanders at Halifax, and in i trie West Indies, to send off, by single ships, as many vessels of war as could spared, and the departure of winch would not excite any social notice. Con currently with this order, single ships have also r a'I Sent ?^S 'rom other remote stations on the coast of Africa and Brazil, and are tit this time assembling ?f Mexico. "It is thus the object of Sir It. 1 eel," says our authority, "gradually and secret- j ly to assemble a considerable naval force in the 1 Mexican seas, which is to act as occasion may arise I ?and, at all events, to prevent any blockade by the I American navy, should the Mexican government ' proceed further in their declaration of war." We believe the statement to be true within the extent in which we are about to qualify it. It is not intended by our owrt government to give umbruge to the United States, but certainly to exhibit an ap pearance of vigor and t mediate preparation, which muy not be withaut its effect upon the new govern ment and Mr. 1 oik. The immediate and ostensible object of the armament, or rather of the assembling of a British squadron oil' the principal Mexican port is to secure and defend our trade against the priva teers and letters of marque which would immedi ately follow upon an American and Mexican war. we understand, also, that its purpose will be to maintain what litis become an established principle in our Courts of Admirulty, namely, that though bel ligerent parties may blockade the single pores of each other, there shall be no blockade of theltne of coast that every blockade shall be actual anil not construct ive, and therefore shall extend no further than to the frontage actually blockaded by a competent hlCM ' tf'ere<.orf'? 110 American blockade of the Mexican coast shall be allowed, and no other in terference with British neutral trade, than such as tu^fy b1ockaded'H8el8 'r?m p0"H ac" [h?? the London Herald, Sept. 13.1 Most of our reuders will recollect the anecdote of the poor poet, who, ufter having spent the greater F\ r i ? 1". ?oml'osi"f? panegyrics on the w!,Vh i Louts XIII. in general, and on Cardinal iucnehea m particular, and having repeatedly ap Li?n t0o emtnence tor the grant of a small pen sion, offered at last what he thought an indisputa bleargumentum ad hominem: " Main Mtmscigneur ilfautvtvre, and was answered, " Maine, Mon sieur, coolly, by the kind hearted cardinal, " ie nen vou pun lanecesaitc." Most probably the poet died ol starvation, to make good his eminence's repartee. A similar answer is given by the kind-hearted Americans, to the happy immigrants who have the good fortune to starve in the land of civil and reli mounlibfrty. We; scarcely take up a New York or rnitaaelphia newspaper, without meeting some shocking cases of death from want. It is all very well to sav that America is the land of abundance litis, no doubt, is more or less true in the interior and far west. But even there without money, which to a poor man it is impossible to obtain without employment, it is difficult to procure a snare of that same abundance, and it is no less im possible in the larger cities, where such abundance certainly does not prevail. The Federal Govern ment of the United States has no poor laws, and nas it not in its power,according to the constitution, to legislate upon the subject. The individual sove reign states, have, more or less, something called a poor law, which in fact consists in nothing more than a law to enrich the State treasuries, more than to benefit the poor. According to this law more especially in the Stales of Massachusetts New York, Pennsylvania, and Maryland, everv passenger on his arrival in any port of those States has to pav one dollar, for which the state guarantees tfiat he shall be provided for in case of sickness or want, lhts money must be paid, and it is paid, be cause tne ship s owner is responsible for it. Fur , 1u expenses of naturalization amount to five dollars, or about twenty-one shillings sterling, per head, and this money, according to an act ol the th Congresses, is destined lor the same Uim j Ibis law has been in force since the year 1792, and according to Dr. Seybert's excellent sta tistical tables ol the United States, the number of passengers landed at the ports of New York, Phila delphia and Baltimore, from the year 1800 to 1815 2?.U?.f. to upwards of 3,000,000; consequently jMWU OOOof dollars came into the treasuries of these lour States. The number of immigrants hus, since ttiat period, much increased, and consequently the sums |and into the State treasuries might most cer tainly have enabled the governments of the dtfler ent States to extend the establishments for the re ception of the distressed. This, however, thev have not thought proper to do; on the other hand they have considered it more expedients turn to ttietr own use the moneys paid to them for that nar ticular purpose. The number of passengers landed at he port ol New York in the year 18-13 amounted to between 3C!?,C00 and 100,000. It is certamly a fair calculation to assume that out of this number at least one-hall per cent., ufter having been confined during a long voyage in a badly ventilated steerage, and then arriving, mostly during the hottest season of the year, in a country, the climate of which is to say the least, far from healthy, may become sick, consequently unable to work, and be thus deprived of the means of support.

[From London Punch, Sept. 19.] Our continental friends have discovered that on her foreign trips her Majesty, however she may be seemingly possessed by pleasure, has nevertheless one ot her bright blue eyeSHlways upon business.? According to German and French writers, her gra cious Majesty Queen Victoria u a commercial tra veller, a royal bag-woman to tne firm ot Bull at Company. Thus, the Queen cared little about the glories of the Rhine. Oh, no ! the prevailing idea of the royal mind was how to diddle the Zollverein in the mutter ot cotton twist. At the very time they were shooting the deer at Gotlia, the Queen's thoughts were immersed in tallow?wrapt in hides. And then her Majesty, with the magic of her voice and smile, has such a way of pushing the com i merce of her native land ! With that knowledge of i human nature which is intuitive to royalty, she ge ' nerally takes the dining hour, as the most genial season to push business.

Affaire in this Republic?Imbecility of the People and Governentnt?American and English Squadrons in the Pacific, frc. A considerable period of time has elapsed since j my last letter to you from the Pacific seaboard. A long voyage from the Isthmus, and oth?r* Circum- | stances, made it necessary that it should be so. 1 will hereafter note down to you more frequently what passes out here. The excitements?political, commercial and naval, in these regions, have been for the past two or three months unusually extensive. Peru, just breathing a few hasty gasps in the pauses ot her civil troubles, has been started by the appearance ofa new enemy. < Ireut Rritain, as soon as she discovered a responsi ble head to the government, peremptorily demanded immediate satisfaction for the insult to her flag by the authorities at Tacna. For two weeks all was excitement here. Spanish blood boiled high?cof fee-houses rang with defiance. The broad sombrero of the Peruvian, shaded an eye kindling with rage ; drums beut, troops were marched, trenches deep ened, cannon remounted, and all was preparation for the fight?when a sail, of man-of-war rig, hove in sight, and then another, and another, and in a few hours their anchors were let go, and the floating fortresses of England were ranged opposite their batteries, ready lor the issue of affairs, whatever it might be. This rapid way of bringing things to the "turning point" had its effect. Negotiations were renewed, and ended in a few days in the govern ment granting every thing demanded at its hands. For once. I think the English were justifiable in a matter of this kind. We would have done the same. Their Consul was ojitraged, and their flag trampled upon at Tacna by a cowardly Prefect of a Department. The reigning powers of Peru have always been singularly forgetful of their obligations to foreign governments; cunning beyond all parallel in the face of diplomacy, they entangle every ques tion they touch in such a variety of forms and GUibbling objections, that it is almost imjiossible to deal with them. The British appear to be the only ones who can get any satisfaction from them; they have a blunt way of doing business just suited to these latitudes. The troubles in the Republic of Equador are at an end. Flores has capitulated to the troops of the in surgent provinces. He is to be banished two years, his property being secuie to him. He goes to Eu rope. His officers were not favored with such terms, all being discharged from the army. The revolu tion arose more on account of the officers than any thing else. The best of them being foreigners, ex cited the jealousy of the natives. There are some few Americans among them. The fact of Flores' accepting such terms for himself', and permitting Ins officers to sufi'er, the very men by whose bravery and exertions he was enabled to retain the Presi dency so long, is a- pretty fair sample of what a South American great man is in our day. But it is the same everywhere among weak races. A bold and energetic breed of men are the only ones capa ble of great or generous actions. I would not look for sincerity f rom Hindoos, nor tor courage in Chi na, nor would 1 any more look for attachments to otuers than themselves among the people on this side of the Isthmus of Panama. This may seem harsh, but is none the less true. We have rumors of trouble at Tahiti, between the French and English again. It all arises from disputes in settling the damages sustained by the celebrated Mr. Pntchard, during his imprisonment on board a French msn-of-war. The French and British Admirals commanding on this station, just started from here for the pur pose of settling it. The English Admiral sent the war steamer to Panama for intelligence about the Oregon alfair. He appeared to apprehend trouble : if there should be, there is no telling what would become of our squadron out here The British Ad miral invariably gets information a month or six weeks before Comm< dore bloat; on that account, putting the Commodore entirely in his power in time of war. This could be remedied by a steamer be ing sent on to this station. Our whole mail arrange ment tor these seas are horribly out of order. The consequence will be felt if a collision takes place. Dembrara ?The prospects of obtaining Coolie immigrants have filled the planters with joy. The Gazette writes as follows :?Our anticipations with respect to Coolie immigration do not seem likely to be disappointed. By a schedule received by the present packet, and published in another column, we perceive that not less than twenty-three ships, measuring thirteen thousand tons, have been alrea dy taken up, in several of the ports of Englend, as trans|K>rts tor Emigrants, bound to the West Indies. From the middle, therefore, of November, to the middle of March next, we may look for a constant arrival of transports with Coolies on board from the far East. We are sure that most of our readers will participate in the sentiments ot joy with which we announce, on excellent authority, that the noble Minister for the Colonies has been graciously pleas ed to authorise, for the service of British Guiana, a transhipment of ten thousand, instead ot five thou sand Coolies, from the East Indies to this country, during the season of 1845 and 1846. Trinidad?A friend in Bande de l'Est writes? "Our Coolies are working well?very slow?but sure. I should think they will do well here?only one or two have been sick. They say they did not expect the work was so hard,but they must get used to it. Their allowance is given them every night for one day, and the head man says few of them can eat all. Grenada.?Between the hours of two and three o'clock in the morning of the 8th ult, a shock of earthquake was experienced in this island. " The motion," says the Chronicle, "was vibratory, and from east to west. On the same day a heavy thun der storm |>assed over the island, accompanied with fine rams. Thunder in the Copper Regions.?It is a singu lar fact that in the neighborhood of the Lake Supe rior Copper Mines, in the Porcupine Mountain*, from a hill six mile* from La Point, comes a sound like repeated discharges of artillery, which on clear days is heard dis tinctly. The agent of the American Fur Company once imagined the noise to proceed from a schooner belong ing lo the company, in distress, and sent a beat to the rescue. The Porcupine mountains aro SO miles frem La Point. It is supposed there mutt be rinr and other metal* incorporated in the copper, and closed up in the mountains, which give out the sounds. The Indians have a tradition that this sound, with which they are fa miliar, is the angry voice of the Great Spirit, enraged that the copper should be disturbed, and for this reason, although familiar with the location of rich beds, they' retuse to reveal this knowledge. Olk Bull and Md'lle Calve.?Ad exchange tells us that Ole Bull, while parading through the streets, one day, was suddenly very lamiliarly clapped on the shoulder with? " How are you, old boss?Old Bull I meant to say I" "You have very mush advantage of me,'' stammered the artiste. " O yes, neow I know yeoure the man wot I gin a hull aol|lar tu see ; I know yeoure daughter!" " My dauture !" exclaimed Ole Bull, " I hare no dauture !" " Neow, just o'here ; ain't you Old Bull !"' " Dat is my name." " He ! he ! wal, then, ain't that are Miss < all (I alve) wot's at the theayter yeour daughtor The violinist sloped. Clerical Changes.?The Rev. !? rederick J. Goodwin has accepted an unanimous call Irom the parish and vestry of Christ church, Middletown, to the rectorship of the ssme. The Hev. B. P. Taibot has beeu unanimously chosen minister of Ht James's churoh, Woonsocket, R. 1. The Rev. William W. Hpear has resigned the rector ship of St. Luke's church, Philadelphia, which he has held since its consecration in 1840. Hev E B. McOmir# has resigned hit charge in Green ville county, and removed to Hanover county. Hartford, Oct. 2d, 1846. Fair and Agricultural EzhibUumr-Student,'Sprees -Saunders Ripley-The Avon Murder Can Isaac Toucey?Railroad Management, Sfc. Our annual county Agricultural Fair and Exhibi tion ojiened yesterday. And as our city papers do not go into details, at all, in order to intorm the people ot Connecticut, what we can show and do in home menufactures, we shall expect such informa tion in the Herald. It is held in the largest building in our city, and fills two stories thereof. Upon en tering the door (after you have purchased a ticket for 124 cents?all the members who pay #1 annual ly , have eight tickets and a free pass, on account of membership) in the broad spaceway, you find straw cutters, bundles of hay, washing muchines, cheese Ee8'.large and 8plTncl'd eeranium trees, monster mi1 Carrk,t!L Pur,ipkins, and squashes, without number, which would satisfy the greatest vegetable J? y?ur Clty- In mom No. 1, sundry lots h.m r ^ k"e flonc>:'1and 'ar?e quantities ot prime butter and cheese?old Duchess county can't beat it either. In room 2 you will find all nicl of every variety and shape, but all rohans m sue' which will cause every Irishman that sees them to sigh for Ireland. The beans, corn, eggplanu'ce" lery, and tomatoes, are plump, large, and 0"xtrs sizes; the peppers are big enough to make Hovt weep tor leavmg "them documents" in the custom House ; the onions (eight to nine inches in circum ference) wou d draw pious or ira-pious tears from Butler, for the want of preaching, on Sandv Hill. In room 3, you will find the finJarta, such as sundry paintings, crayon and pencil drawings : Da guerreotyjies, landscapes, likenesses, dec., &c. In No. 1, you will find stoves, ploughs, drc. No. 6 is occupied by the clerk-a very clever and business like chap who, although not a bull-y, is a gentle man. We will now see what is in the Hall above, which has often held over 2500 persons at one ana the_same time. Upon entering, we turn to the right, and find an endiess variety of apples, either kind til i's 'or President or Bennett. I he |leaches are great and fit for Queen Victoria : the quinces are monstrous; the variety and size of the grapes are large?either kind of which I should be verv happy to have left at my store, or I will call and take whichever kind the owners shall allot to me ! The jiears are delicious?in looks, and several oilier kinds of fruit, "too numerous to mention," in looks, were delicious. It is tantalizing in the ex treme, that we are neither allowed to touch, handle or taste thereof. If they don't put me on the tasting committee, next year, I won't puff the fair up haB as large as their fruit is now. You will also see here a Siamese watermelon, and a Siamese peach? freaks of nature in this country in 1845. The plants exhibited are not so numerous as formerly ; but the flowers have increased. We have here a temple of flowers in an evergreen bower, or larger temple also some twenty to thirty canary birds enclosed therein. This is a very imposing and pleasing at traction. To the north of this is our national flag, composed of alternate stripes of leaves and roseT? An omen to Texns took place thereat this afternoon ?one of the roses, representing the States, fell oui of itself! The hair work exhibited is nice. The millinery and lots of ladies gewgays, I cannot de scribe?not being acquainted. Hats, caps, trunks, gloves, and the like, were numerous, and their qual ity was excellent. A beautiful piano, manufactured in this city, attracted considerable attention. An orange tree, loaded with ripe fruit, looked tempting enough to cause tis to follow the example ot mothe? hve?to pluck and eat. The printing exhibited was nothing extraordinary, the bronze work being all covered with glass to prevent its being rub.,ed off". I he bookbinding, generally, was of the gingerbread stamp. I, however, noticed some blank books, fit for the use of the Herald establishment, but the ma ker made a sad mistake for you in stamping them with the name of Woodruff" &, Beach. A couple of them had brass enough on them for a Plainfield bank president's visage. The cutlery wub equal to the best of Sheffield?especially that from the Collins Co., and from other firms, which 1 omitted, acci dentally, to minute down. The wood and ivory rules were nice?true enough te be presented to John Van ouren to square his oaths by. Of knives, there was one of over a foot long, with three blades, and va lued at $300 to S'3w, and the contrast of one about an inch in length, laid by its side, made after the same pattern. On the handle of the large one, are exact and beuutiful pic tures of New York, Hartford, and Philadelphia. 1 he woollen and cotton goods exhibited were tine thidt and heavy. Of the woollens, the Leed'sCo's! of Rockville, took the lead?they are now in the market what Farnham's used to be?No. 1, and the standard. The handiwork of the ladies I cannot de fl.-&h?wed ?reat????, patience and industry. 1noticed a show case of " crazy notions" from the ladies of the retreat. The paper hangings manu factured by Spencer & Co. were ritff SfSS beautiful. The oil cloths were also nice, and not to be beat ; but the carpettngs and rugs from the rhompsonville Carpet Manufacturing Company which manufactory is situated some dozen miles north ot here, were splendid?gorgeous. We here see a specimen of the thick, heavy, nne and smooth carpet made for the White House, Washington, by this company, the past m i. eagles are worked therein admi rably about one foot apart; the colors are rich. deep, dark, but not gaudy. The other specimens exhibit ed were nice enough for any other place but your sanctum?lor which, this white house style is just the thing. The Fair is crowded, day and evening by the beauty of the city. They here can "go to see and be seen," and who has any objections, but old crusty bachelors 1 1 was going on to speak of a thousand other things, but I find I am telling the whole story, and from fear that I shall the whole, so that it will not be necessary for those to go and see tor themselves, who have not been, I must close by saying, that the display of fruits, vegetables, nick-nacks, Yankee notions, ire., "beats all na tur, and your New York Fair can't touch us on fruits and vegetables." This is a fact.' 1 cannot leave this subject without paying a tribute to the in defatigable labors of the Secretary and Committee of Arrangements, and especially to their Chairman, every thing is well and systematically arranged On Monday morning a few Trinity Btudents were furnished,, at the expense of the city, with lodgings, where Old Cad and his crew were a short time since?the watch-house or Hartford Tombs. They were walked up to the same court, fined for their spree and sent back to " College" to study street manners. From our city papers I see that one of them is grumbling because loafers and rowdies are not there furnished with feather-beds, ottomans, so las, marble tables, etc Keek sober, young lark, and you will not again find lodgings there. Mr. -Saunders last Monday afternoon procured five merchants as bondsmen for $500, whose united wealth must be some $200,000. This certainly is not " straw bail." .Some think that Ripley was en tirely to blame, and some otherwise, but I express no opinion. The Court will settle " the hash." Ornn Woodford, the cider-drinker, who so inhu manly murdered his wife a few months since, in Avon, about six miles Northwest of this city, has been on trial before the Superior Court, the past few days, in this city. The particulars you published at the time. It is not necessary to recapitulate such a blood-curdling account. The jury will render their made0'aH ,de closing plea is now being The Hon. Isaac Toucey, late democratic M. C., ho several weeks since was so badly injured, by Ins horses running away in Bolton, 12 miles easi ?I this city, was, on Tuesday, able to be ^brought nome. I his shows his health is gradually, aJ hough very slowly, improving. I he llartford and New Haven Railroad Comjai ny have altered their time of running, so that |>as ^engers have to stop some two or three hours in New Haven before the day boat leaves, aqd some five to seven hours for the night boat. This is the. accommodation to the public for which they are compiled to pay 1 cents per mile, for travel. And the New Haven jwpers have been grumbling, "dog in-tfie-inanger-like," about the high fares on the Western road, of 3J cents j>er mile injuring the re ceipts of this road that charges I cents per mile! Oh brass ! Uh grindstones! I have a large budget of rich, racy and lively ihings in reserve for your readers: such as our Hartford i-apers dare not publish if they had life ?nough to write them. Next firiday will be exhibited some rare sport by fie twenty odd ploughing teams in the North leadow. Look out for fun ahead! Murder.?A foul and meat wanton murder was perpetrated yeaterday morning in Faubourg Tremd. Mr Joachim Boissaux, an old and respectable resident at thiicity, living in Main street, between Derbigny and Koman streets, was awoke about 3 o'clock yesterday morning, by what he conceived was sumo person rap ping at his bedroom window. He arose to ascertain the cause, and while on the stops of the door leading to the vard, he was fired at by some person concealed in the kitchen, which is about five paces distant fiom the back door, and received lour buckshot in the right side, irom the eO'ecta ol'which he died at 8 o'clock yesterday morn ing. The murderer is unknown. It la to be htmed, how ever, that through the unceasing vigilance of our city authorities, the perpetrator of the fou deed will soon he brought tojustioeS 0. Pieayunt, 9f>t.
