The route from New York to St. Louis by the wty of Philadelphia, Baltimore, Cumberland, and Pittsburgh, is 1,790 miles, and the fare $31. The incidental expenses on this route are about $10,total cost $41. The route by the Lakes, and to cross Michigan to 9t. Louis, 1,403 miles and the expense about $30. By the Lakes, the traveller can reach St. Louis in eight days, whereas it will take him twelve days at least to go by the southern route Ono night in Philadelphia, one in Baltimore, one in going by stage over the Alleghany mountains, one in Pittsburg, and if the passage from Tittsburg to St. Louis is taken flrst to Cincinnati, it will cost another night thcie, and the expense will be $3 moro for fare. Those persons who aro fond of good water, and wish to avoid the cholera morbus, will of course go the northern route. The water on this route is only At for poisoning 1, such ut least,as we had on board alligators, and the beef, these floating palaces, is unite as tender as sole leather, owing, no doubt, to the fact that the Captains of these boats, three hundred of which are said to be on the Ohio, buy the cheapest article they can And to feed their hungry passengers. Provisions generally, how ever, are plenty and good, but the cooking is most exe ctabie. I have bean assured by the person who keeps the locks at Louisville, on the Ohio, that the steamers make about two thousand passages through them in one season ? This allows ot about three hundred steamboats at six passages to a bout, and all these filled with freight and passengers ! There is not on the whole length of the Ohio (1001) miles) one sail boat with a mast ol any des cription to be seen. Pittsburg is a dirty looking thriving town, with a most interesting surrounding country. The coal hills around this place are a great curiosity. After passing over the Allegany mountains, land which is in general good.sells from $30 to $100 ner acre. The sites for towns or (arms along the sluggish dark Ohio are beautiful in the ex treme, but there is nothing in the west that I huve yet seen to bear any comparison with West Point or Lake (Jeorgo scenery. The women out in these diggings look cadaverous, and unhealthy, and the men are mostly living skeletons. I started out one morning in Cincinnati, where I stopped four days, to find a fat man, and after passing through se veral streets without success, met a porter, of whom I inquired for one. "A fat man," said he ! "What in the name of fit.Buckeye do you want with a fat man 7"? "Why," said I, " the people are nil so lean, that my cu riosity leads me to find a fat person. " You aro on your way to the grave yard," said he ; " you may find one to suit you there, for all the fat men die ofl'in hot weather, leaving the loan ones behind." The gambling system is mostly broken up on these wes tern waters, but pickpockets and thieves are very abun dant. A gentleman had his gold watch and $300 in mo ney taken night before last from under his head as he slept. The country about Cincinnati is beautiful in the ex treme, and the city itself is going to be the Queen oi the West, should fit. Louis not get ahead of her in wealth and population. Covington and Newport, two towns in Kentuckv, opposite Cincinnati, are beautifully and ro mantically situated. The United States havo a recruit ing station at Newport. The children in the West are either taught to be im pertinent, or are naturally so. A chap of about 0 years of age, at the Broadway Hotel, Cincinnati, was taking a slice from a luncheon table, when a gentleman observed in a good humored manner, " Don't hurt yourself, ray 'my.'1 " Stop your damned jaw," was the lad's very po lite reply ! 1 heard the keeper of a Kentucky prison say that he would cut any man into pieces, even in Cincinnati, that would attempt to take a slave from him that he might have arrested, and added, with a great boast, that " two Keutuckians were at any time able to whip three north ern men," and wished to havo an opportunity to cut the ?hroats of all the abolitionists in the United States, and that he would employ the largest and sharpest bowie knife in Kentucky or Arkansas to do the business. Ar thur Tajman and his friends would stand a poor chance l fellc with a fellow like this. The people of Kentucky have, however, been much imposed on by the abolitionists of Ohio, and justly feel sore on the question of slavery. We are now within a few miles of the Mississippi, and the Ohio enlarges to about the size of the Hudson a N'ewburgh, being quite a narrow stream from the mouth of the Tennessee to Pittsburg. The Columbia is a steam er ol about an average size, converting about 140 gal lons of water into steam every hour?high pressure, as ire ail the other boats on these waters. Her power is about sixty horse, and she can be driven at the speed of ten miles per hour. The Ohio is now in fiuc navigable condition. The Herald has a ready sale to travellers in the Wes tern towns, at 12J cents cost, daily number. Preparations arc now making in the West to invade Vtexico, and the feeling is so strong that the general Oovornment will have small influence in attempting to stop any expedition that may be got up for that purpose. Korty thousand men eanbe had from the valleys of the Ohio and Mississippi, independent of the floating popu lation of the Atlantic cities, who would willingly share in the produce of the 26 Mexican mines, producing i twenty millions of dollars per annum, and the two hun I lied millions of gold and silver in the bosom of the church, and colters of the priests. The territory of New Mexico, between the Ouadaloupe mountains and I'.oidilleras of Mexico, 750 by 150 miles, is one oi the finest countries on earth, and will shortly, by the consent A the inhabitants, be in possession of the Anglo-Saxon race, which is destined to cover the whole country, as >ar -South as the Isthmus of Panama. Send all your floating population. Illinois and Missouri,every man with lis rille or musket on his shoulder, and his fortune will be made in both money and land. All grades of officers will be appointed lrotn active, brave, intelligent young men. Tho time is now arrived to convert that country io its proper use, by giving to it an efficient and stable government. Ho '. to the West. October 17, 1646. P. S. -The people in this city, which is a very fine one, have diod oil' during the last summer remarkably fast, owing, it is said, to eating excessive quantities ol iresh neat in hot weather. The Mormon war is over, but that people will remove in a body to California next qiring. The Anties are said here to be questionable characters. That, ho w ever, is a matter of opinion.

Schinley, his wife, and her father, und | laser-be* the residence of the latter. The reader will loubtlosH recollect the romantic elopement,at the board ing school, in Now York, some four years since, and the ,'reat excitement which then prevailed throughout the ?ountry.iu consequence of a young Miss ol Alteon falling in lore, and eloping with (at the press then declared) an jld man of fifty years, who proved to be an Knglish (fticer.

At that time the excitement was great among <11 classes, caused more especially as Miss C. was an inly child, and would become the most wealthy heiress in America. The coriespondent of the Sun thus speaks if her father, and alludes to a probable reconciliation let ween the parties Colonel Crogan is one of those whole-souled men, hat we seldom meet in the gay circles of wealth and re linement. > Proud and ambitious to educate his only ibild, after his own exalted taste, the shock was still nore great. As time wore away it only sharpened the memery olthe past, and he kindly wrote to have her re turn. Instead of complying with his request, her insband (Captain Schinley, whose name ought to have been before mentioned) forwarded to Col. C., his father ny the laws ol America, a full length portrait of himselt ind young wile. The result of the gift together with the announcement that Col. C., had become giandlather to two little " responsibilities," induced him to embark lor Kngland, anil doubtless ere this a reconciliation has taken place between both parties, and the next steamer inay bring off the happy family; so that those may see the gallant Captain they so much persecuted after he so suddenly " eloped" with the pretty heiress. The residence of Col. Crogan is all that art, wealth, ind taste can exhibit ; the interior of his house is fin ished in the moat superb and costly manner by the la "" " r.Va hors of his celebrated artiste, Mr. Van ilorn, the geutle man who very politely conducted us through the most magnificent apartments. There is not a single room in the house but there is displayed the masterly chisaelings and modellings of Mr. V an Horn ; to add te this is the most costly lurniture that wealth can produce. The particular objects of attraction to all visitors are the nor 11aits of Mr. and Mrs Schinley. The latter was taken since her elopement by a celebrated Knglish artist, and is said by those who knew her, to be a coirect one The figuieis as large as life, with no very attractive features, rather pretty withal. The likeness of tho Captain pre sents the appearauce of a person of an old Knglish lap, il I may be allowed the expression. With all the skill of the artiste, lalse teeth and hair are perfectly visible, par ticularly on the upper lip. The yards and gardens adjoining the above premises
are in a beautiful state of cultivation, and far in advancp ol those ol Mr. Gushing of Brighton. They have been ? aid out by the most experienced gardeners, while no pains have been spared in the selection of all the valua ble foreign exotics which even at this late season, many are in full bloom and send forth a delicious and balmy odor. It is indeed a paradise on earth, and it is with plea sure that I record that the proprietor is one of thoso be nevolent men that net only enjoys his luxuries himself, hut freely dispenses them to all around.

Adopted The Board then adjourned antil Monday evening next. The Express 'Robbery?One Thousand Dol lars Reward.?We stated yesterday that Living irto.i L. AVelU's express bad been robbed the evening previous, at the railroad depot. We have since learned lurther particulars. It appears that the packages were made up at the otlice by Mr. Hastings, the agent, and Mr. I'owell, the messenger,at the usuai time in the even ing. Between ten and half past, all the baggage and the mouoy trunk were taken to the depot by these gentle men. The baggage was placed in the car ana lock ed up. Mr. Powell placed his money trunk in the passenger car, on the seat he intended to occupy, locked the door, and stood conversing for some miuutes with Mr. Hast ings, by the window, where he had a lull view of the trunk. He then stepped into the ticket office, to pay a freight bill, where he remained not over two minutes ; and when he returned the trunk was gone. Ail the doors of the building were immediately closed, and a thorough search made. Information was immediately given to the police, and every ^venue of the city was watched until morning, to discover if the robber left town. Koitunately the amount of money from this city was not large?not exceeding $4000. The Commercial Bank iost two packages?one containing $1960, in bills, and the other $260. Mr. J. T. Talman lust about $-266. The iemainder belonged to private individuals. It is feared that the trunk contained a large amount oi funds from Buffalo. A reward of $600 was offered by the agent here, for the recovery of the trunk. The dispatch with which this robbery was committed may ba learned from the fact that Mr. Hastings left the depot ab^ut the same time Powell stepped into the tick et office, and had only reached the Mansion House when a messenger overtook him, informing him oi the theft. The locks on the passenger cars are of very simple construction, and the thief probablv found no difficulty iu opening the door with a lalse key. The North side ol tho depot is usually dark, and quite favorable to the es cape of a rogue without being observed. P. S. The advices from Butlalo, received yesterday af ternoon, render it probable that the amount of money lost is about $30,000. The only information received concerning the robbery is the statement of a passenger, who upon entering the car saw a man coming out with a small trunk under his cloak. He was accompanied by a short man with n grey overcoat on. Both passed out of tbe Kastern end of the depot. Mr. H. J. Hastings has offered a reward of $1000 for the recovery of the trunk and money.?Rochester Demo crat, Oct. 36. The Buffalo Pilot of Saturday says : ? " We have made diligent inquiry, here, touching the possible loss, and give as the result the following, which we cannot suppose a perfect list,though it is all we have ascertained :? H. R. Seymour k Co $10,000 A. D. Patchin 2,800 O Leek Co 3,700 White's Bank 1,760 Ward k Ce 000 Livingston It Wells 400 Two packages from tho west, received here per steamboat, one directed to American Exchange Bank ol New York 2,000 One to H. Biomley & Co., N. Y 783 11. O. Hood, one package to N. Y? 236 " " " 303 Bank of Sandusky 1,000 $23,671 llobinson h Co. and the Attic Bank sent nothing. Besides the above, there were several smaller sums known to have been sent Irom this city,which may swell the amount a few hundreds. A correspondent of the Democrat adds the following circumstsuice "Tbeio can be no doubt that every movement of these messengers is watched by individual or banded thieves, and that nothing but that skilful concert which such men ate so perfect in, could have made two minutes suffice, under such circumstances, for such an act. It is a great satisfaction to know, that, providentially, a gentleman waiting for a message by the ICxpress. watched through the car-window the opening and closing of the missing trunk, saw it laid up on the seat, and the car locked alter him by the messenger, as he passed out to the Collec tor's desk." Perilous Adventure and Timely Rescue ? The youngest daughter ol Mr. 8. P. Dhvis, of th is city, between thirteen and fourteen years of age, says the Sew Harm Courier, went on to the roof, and while engaged in sweoping, her feet slipped from under her, aa<l she slid down to the eaves and over the trough, but fortunately succeeded in grasping the trough with her hands, and held on to it, sustaining in this way the weight of her person, while she called for assistance.? Her cries reached the ears of a gentleman passing, who, on discovering her perilous situation, sprang to the door and with a loud rap obtained immediate entrance. On being inquired of what was wanting, he made some ! hurried answer, and asked the way to the roof of the portico. On reaching it, he slid down to tho eaves, and by dint of well directed and collected efforts, rescued tbe girl from her perilous situation without injury. Another Murder in Tennessee.?A moat wilful murder was committed h few mghta since near Cleaveland, in Bradley county, Tenn., on the body of ] James llill, by, it is supposed, a young man of the name of MayBeld, irom Arkansas. It appears that MayHeld returned to that section of country after an absence of seveial years, aiid went to the house of Mr. Hill just af ter dark, and asked if he could stay all night. Mr. HI 1 replied that he could, and advanced towards the fence, when MayHeld deliberately shot him down in his own i yard and made his escape.
