NEW YORK HERrLLD. ^ew 1 urk, ^anday, iirfmktr Mb tt*45. IVrxt IVcwi Troii* Kurope? The Britannia is the next steamer due. She left Liverpool on the 4th mat, and, therefore, brings fit teen days later intelligence. Speculators are look ing anxiously for her arrival Our Korrlfiii Ilelntlona, By mir last accounts from Washington relative to our foreign relations,which are now of vital impor tance, it would seem that coupled with the recent declarations issuing from the organ on the subject of Oregon, there are some conditions Hiid restric nonv The declaration of the Vnixm newsffaper, which is the org m of the President, that our title to the whole o<" Oregon is "clear and unquestionable," is construed to be a mere declaration of tale ; and from the intimations thrown out, it seems that there is a desire on the part of the administration, while they start on this bro id claim,to negotiate for a final settlement of the matter. They claim the title to j the whole of Oregon, but leave the question of how much they will take to contingencies and future t events This seems to be the general understanding in every quarter, Hnd it inay create a great denl of discussion hereafter. At all events the views of the adminis tration, judging from the givinga out of the organ, are not so belligerent or uncompromising as hereto fore. On the subject of Mexico and our relations with that power, there seems to be no doubt that diplo matic intercourse is ubout to be resumed. It seems that the British government has given notice to the government of Mexico of its determination to fore close certain claims and mortgages which it lias on 'and tales in California and other States, of that Union, as an indemnity to English bondholders.? This determination on the part of Great Britain may account for the change in our relations with the Mex ican government, and we expecr to see all our diffi culties settled with that government in a cordial manner. On the whole, tin refore, it would seem that our foreign relations, even with England, are not in so menacing a position as they seemed to be at the last accounts. But they are certainly in a very ticklish i condition, and from the action of parties in Congress no one can tell how soon the government may not only claim the whole of the Oregon territory, but under a law of Congress, may be compelled to take possession of the whole, and then will coine up col lision between the United States and England ? Everything depends on future events, and on the next session of Congress. Theatrical and Musical.?A season of most ex traordinary prosperity and revival has dawned upon theatrical and musical art in this country The ap pearance of the great artist on the piano, l>e Meyer, has created & furor in the musical circles of a most remarkable character. When Ole Bull, Vieux Temps, and Artot appeared, a great excitement was produced, but never was there such an excitement in favor of music generally, as that which exists at this moment. De Meyer has appeared nine times six tunes at the Park, and thrice at the Tabernacle On each occasion he has won fresh laurels, and his concerts have been crowded with enthusiastic audi ences beyond anything we have ever seen. De .Meyer according to all the musical criticism of this city?and it is now very much improved beyond what it was two years ago?is the greatest artist of the day, on any instrument. He not only unites power with sensibility as a performer, but his com positions are the most exquisite and dignified things that have ever been heard in that line. Ole Bui! is now about to close a career of two years in this co ntry, with one or two concerts in this city?a career which has been unprecedented in success. It is probable that he has cleared, dur ing the lust two years, fifty or sixty thousand dol lars, beside making troops of friends, who will al ways remember him with the deepest interest. As an artist on the violin, Ole Bull's reputation stands higher than that of any other, although a large por tion of the musical world esteems Vieux Temps as his equal, if not his superior, us a mere performer. Vieux Temps, however, never created the enthusi astic feeling of personal regard which Ole Bull has enlisted. Ole Bull is now, as we have said, about to close a brilliant career in this country, and if he do not remm to Europe in a few weeks, he will probabiy becem" a citizen of the United States, bring his family over to this land, and become a settler in the mighty west. But this is not all the attraction in the musical circles. Templeton, the great vocalist of the age, is also amongst us. He has given several concerts in this city, with astonishing success ; and in Boston, trom which city he returns in a few dayB, he has had a career, brilliant and profitable in the extreme. Then we hive the Delcy troupe. Miss Delcy's s iccessasanartistof the highest order of genius, has been complete. Besides all this, a young married lady ot this city?connected with a distinguished physician and surgeon?Mrs. Mott, has made also a very remarkable debut as a eautatrice, and rece ived unequivocal applause lor her talents and natural lowers as it vocalist. In fact, the whole fashionable world have now a taste for music,unprecedented dur ing past years. With regard to theatricals, our progress during the last few months has been equally rapid and equally surprising. Mrs. Mowatt, a lady of this city, recently made her dtbu,t as an actress, and took at once the first rank in the profession. Mr. Murdock has also taken a rapid lead in the upper region of theatrical allairs, and time and practice may enable him to sustain himself, and maintain his position.? The Keans have been carrying every thing before them, creating every where a perfect storm of en thusiasm All our theatres are well attended, and more money is now weekly expended on theatrical and musical eniertainments, than was spent in this way in months, a year or two ago Theatrical and musical genius is indeed reaping a harvest, prolific beyond all example. Thk Arcole.?This splendid specimen of nava architecture Jwas launched yesterday ifroin the yard of Messrs Westervelt ?5c Mackay, of this city, whose reputation as ship-builders is already fully sustained in the performance of the Prince Albert, Waterloo, Prince de Joinville, and others. The Arcole is designed as one of Hoyd vV Htncken and Chamberlain & Phelps' efficient line of Marseilles packets, to be commanded by Capt. N. W. Eve leigh. Her measurement is 700 tons burthen, and will carry 1700bales of cotton?'.Ml feet beam,20 feet deep, 140 leet deck. The lorecaatle is on deck, as also the cabin, which will be turnished in the most elegant and costly manner |tossible, with state rooms tor 2* passengers, each containing a sola, and all the recent improvements for the comlort and conveni ence of passengers. The berths are against the innel bulkhead, and by means of side fights each room is sired from without, at the pleasure of the occupant; by this arrangement the light is not liable to be eclipsed by those walking the deck, as in the ojdi nary mode of lighting the rooms by means of a dead-light above Mm is of the most exquisite form we have ever seen, surpassing even those which were considered i*rfection itself On her head is a full length figure ot Napoleon, bearing in his hand the French standard, which is intended to represent his passage over the bridge of Arcole, celebrated as the scene of a battle between the French and Aus. riant, on the 15th of November, 17i?> llet name was given her through compliment to ihe French, and we much doubt wliether the Mediterranean ever floated ft more perfect model since the com niencement of ship-building. Emotion in Louisiana.The new constitution is undoubtedly adopted by a large majority. In the Third Congressional district, Harmanson, the demo cratic candidate, is probably elected. I' illy llontNK ?Three more jurors, making eight in ail, were yesterday procured lor the trial of this woman. ?trxauLAR Liml Casf.?Mr. Webb.ofthe Courier nd Enquirer, has announced his intention of insti tuting legal proceedings against Greeley, of the Tribune, tor libel, in charging him with bribery in ' the memorable case of the United States Hank. This will be a very curious case, indeed, involving almost as inurh interest as Mackenzie's brochure. In this pie, also, we mean to have a very large fin ger, as we will probably be one of the principal wit nesses in the case, for we were connected with the Courier and Enquirer during the period in which these transactions took place, and very intimately, too, as editor and confrere with Mr Webb. The history of these transactions has never yet been fully given, but we mean to set to work in a day or two and disclose alb that we know about it. No doubt the United States Bank, through Nicholas Btddle, loaned money to the Courier untf Enquirer, but we doubt, if there was any bribery in the case, whether Mr. Webb should be justly charged with such an oflence. To eur knowledge, M. M. Noah had much more to do with some of those doubtful transactions than Webb. At all events, we are dis posed to think that if any bribery were jierpetrated at all, it was the types, aad not the persons in the Courier establishment, that lorined the subject of the operation. However, we shall investigate (he whole aifair in a few days. Lauok Lost.?Corcoran Ktggs, highly resecta ble bankers at Washington, are taking the trouble of writing notes to a miserable and obscure print in this city called the News, in order to set themselves right in regard to the transactions in Wall street. This is entirel)- labor lost, as it is a matter of very little consequencp what the News, or any one conuected with it, publishes respecting bankersor brokers,with the exception of a very small clique,who have a deep interest in the stated preaching of the gospel at Sandy Mill and other places. No one reads the Nrwg or pays the slightest attention to its statements. A few obscure brokers, who live in dingy cellars in Wall street, may use its columns to run up or run down some particular stocks, so that out of " the difference" they may purchase a dinner or a puir of breeches; but that is the amount of its influence in this region. A more weak, ridiculous, and wishy washy concern than the Newt, either as a paper or an organ, was never started by the Democrats in tins city. Even Slainm, Bang & Co., with all their flummery and fury, are infinitely more influential, and are rapidly taking the lead as the organ of the Democracy here. Theatricals. Park Theatre.?Last evening Mad. Augusta com pleted her engagement in this city. A very respectable audience assembled. Her performances commenced with a merely tolerable vaudeville, in one act, writteu by Thomas Haynes Bayley, called the " Spitaliieldi Wea ver." After which the second act of the witching ballet of " Nathalie,"' in which Mad. Augusta played the Swiss maid must charmingly, was petormed. She then danced tho wild, yet beautiful, " La Rondeja," and the evening closed with the first act of " La Bayadere," of Mad. Augusta's performance, in which, we have spoken at length. Mad. Augustata will creates great sensation wherever she goes. She is, if possible, more charming and beautiful than when in this country before. There is much anxiety among the managers over the country us to who shall make with horthe first engagement, and whoever succeeds will undoubtedly reap a golden hat vest. On Monday, Donizetti's grand opera of " Lucy of Lam mermoor,"' in which the Delcy troupe appear, will be performed. This opera is to be produced in beautiful stjle with new scenery, kc. It is said to contain some of Donuizetti's best musical compositions. There will, without doubt, be a crowded house at the Park ou Mon day night. Bowery Theatre?A very respectable audience fill ed the walls of this elegant and popular place of amuse" ment last night The "Mysteries of Paris," iu which Mr Scott performed the part of tho "Chourineur;" the "Magic Fountaiu," aud other eulertainments, were pre. rented, and the evening's performance passed off to the delight and satisfjetion of the visitors. To-morrow night has been set apart for tho benefit of Mr J. M.Trimble architect and builJer of the theatre. No man has stronger claims on the public for patrcnago, and we hope he w ill have a bumper. An address, written for the oc casion, will be spoken by Mrs. Phillips, after which Shakspoare's tragedy of "King Lear" will be enacted' Mr. Mitchell, manager of the Olympic, has also volun teered his services, and plays "Jem Baggs" in the come dy of the "Wandering Minstrels." Mr. Trimble is a teally deserving man and merits a generous support 'rom the New Vork public. Herr Alexander.?This man of magic still continues to draw the most crowded and fashionable audiences at Niblo's. A majority of his companies are ladies, who are all highly delighted, both with Alexander and his wonderful experiments. If he plays such tricks with their hearts as he does with their eyes, we pity the poor creatures. At the solicitation ot some of the most fashion able families in the city, who have uot yet seen him, he has consented to postpone his other engagements and re main here another week. By reference to our adver tising columns, a communication, from the treasurer ot the Ladies' Half Orphan Asjlum, will be lound acknow ledging the receipt of from llerr Alexander. This is more creditable to Alexander, that it was given with out any request or previous parade. Ai.hamka.? L)r. Valentine and the Anglesea singers Ate still delighting the tashiouable audiences, who night ly Hock to this fine place of amusement. Theatricals still nourish in this country, as they have not nourished in years, if ever, before. The general prosperity which pervades all classes of the community is the cause of this. The Keans have just concluded a most successful en gagement in this city. They have now left for Boston, where they commence an engagement of three weeks, on Monday evening nest. They will theu return to this city, and after ploying here a short time, will pioceed to the South. I.eopold De Meyer, the lion-pianist of the age, has commenced giving concerts at the Tabernacle in this nity. He gave one last evening, which was thronged by the beauty and fashion. He goes to Boston next week. Mr. Templeton has been giving a series of most suc cessful concerts in Boston. He has now left there, and alter giving concerts in some of the smaller cities, will leturn to this city and commence a series of his musical entertainments at the Tabernacle on Monday, Novem* ber 'J 4th Mad. Augusta, the distinguished danseuse, has been highly successful at the i'urk Theatre ot this city. She leaver here for Philadelphia on Monday. The Delcy troupe are to appear at the Park on Mon day next, in the new opera of the " Bride of l.ammer rnuir." Ole Bull gave his larewell concert in Philadelphia on Thursday evening last, and will probably arrive in this city to day His friends are determined that he shall give us another concert before he leaves the country. The Seguins are still in Philadelphia. Mrs. Mowatt and Mr. Crisp have just concluded a highly successful engagement in Boston, where Mis. Mowatt's new comedy of " Fashion''has been played. Tut Ahrxst ok Ole Bull its Bali imosj.-The cir rum stances attending the recent arrest of Ole Bull in Baltimore, according to one of the Philadelphia papers, are these A contract was made by an agent ot Ole Bull, with Mr. Win. K. Burton, of this city, for Ole Bull to play four nights at the Arch s'reet Theatre. Mr Button agreed upon his part to furnish a fail and competent orchestra to accompany Ole Bull. Ole Bull came to this city irom Boston to fulfil the engagement, bringing with him Mig. I,a Manna to conduct tlie orches* tia. 1'poii his arrival lie found .Mr. Burton could not pro cure the orchestra, (they being otherwise engaged,) and wished him to play with a piano accompaniainent, which he reltited to do. He thereby was at considerable ex pense in coming to this city fully prepared to lulfil the contract Thus the matter stood for more than a year, uutil a lew days ;igo, in Baltimore, Mr. Burton had him arrested just as he was about leaving his hotel for the purpose of petforniiug at his concert. Silshee, tho \ ankee, took a henetit at the Arch afreet theatre, Philadelphia, on Wednesday evening last 1 he Boston Philharmonic Society gave a concert last evening for the benefit of the widow of the late Leonold Herwig. Railroad Ikon for Michigan.?'There are four invoices of railroad iron which have been shipped from (his port during the past week for Michigan. The I urchase nas been completed of iron and spike for lay iitg the track of the Central road to Kalamazoo, and the Tecumseh branch of the southern road to the village of Tecumseh, and the entire lotia now afloat and will reach its destination within two weeks.?

Four mutilated bodies drifted oil shore - those of a woman and threo men. Also,?'some band-boxes, and other light articles Loss of a Vat.uadi.f Mail.?The Puemwster o( Albany received on Friday morning a notetroro the Postmaster of New York to the following ellect: Pout Office, Citt of New 1 ork, j November 13, 1845. j To the Postmaster, Albany : We received no pouch trom your ortice ol the 11th inst by the 6 o'clock boat. Presuming it contained a* usual bags for Philadelphia and Washington and the mail matter tor Baltimore, 1 have written to tlioae otllcet. I have also communicated with tho department at Washington. Respectfully yours, ROBT. 11. MORRIS. The mail here spoken of was taken to New York in the Knickerbocker steamboat. It was not in charge of a mail agent, no such officer being appointed, except for the mails carried in the five o'clock boat, which lands at all the river post otlices.? It was not missed till near noon of tho l -'tn. We are in formed by the I'ost Master here, that the person whose duty it is io bring the mails to the New York Post Office, states that he found the mail bags lying on the deck of the boat, the officer in whose room they were usually placed for safeguard, having retired to his berth and left them on the deck, instead of retain ing them in his room, und delivering them to the post office porter when the boat atrivod. The "pouch" spoken of in Mr. Morris' letter was not among them.? The boat reached New York at 4 o'clock in the morn ing. The mail must hare been taken off in the interval between the landing and the arrival of the porter from the olttce. How accurate this statement may turn out to be. we cannot tell, but as it atands, it throws the re sponsibility for this affair upon the management at the other end of the route. The mail was exceedingly valuable. The Commer cial Dank had enclosed in it drafts to the ainouut of 570,000, the State Bank 530 000?in all about $130,000. These were in all instances, we believe, drawn paya ble to order, and a forged endorsement will be necessary before they be made available to the robbers No money, as far as yet ascertained, was lost. The information of the tobbery came here so late, as to render unavailing all efTorts for tho recovery ot tho loss, or the detection of its authors. These efTorts are, however, pushed rigorously, and wo trust successfully, by Postmaster Morris, in New York. Mr. Wasion suggests that possibly tho mail may have gone on South-by mistake This, of course, will soon bo known -Albany-1 tint, \ov 15.

Now is a capital chanco for you who dine 011 turkey or goose every day, to think of some poor friend, whose nostrils are not tickled with the steam of lowl from one year's end to the other. Hap pily there are hut few such in this country. But if you know of such an one, send liiin a goose. Don't let him know who it came from ; and lie and his wife and chil dren will eut, with pleasure and merriment, while they bless the unknown giver. Who doesn't remember that immortal goose which decked the table of Scrooge's clerk, Bob Crnchit, on Christmas day .' Send a fowl to yout poor relatives and friends, and make their eyes sparkle and their hearts leap for joy, at the sight ol it. Mysterious Disappearance.? A highly respectable young man, named Frederick L. Roberts, left his board ing bouse, 301 Fulton street, on the Ith inst, without in timuting to his friends that he hud any intention of going away, and has uot been seen since, so that great tears are entertained that he has met with foul play.

Vol. 1 New York?Paine & Bufess ?This elegant work has been laying on our "table several days unnoticed from the fact that we did not kuow exactly what to say about it. It was entitled to more than a common notice, for it is no common book, and an elaborate criticism, such in the work deserves, we had not space to give. It ; is a curious and extraordinary book, both as regards its literary merit und the material of which it is composed. It is written with spirit and betraye u versatile and comprehensive mind The most in- ; tcreating portion perhaps consists of an autobiogru- | phy of our gifted fellow countrymen, Hirain Pow ers, whose statute of the Greek Slave created ] such a deep sensation in England u few months ago. ; It describes the various trials he struggled through . in his chequered life, and many amusing and farci ful incidents, till you come to his artistic lite, when the scene changes, and you behold, instead of the gay smile and light heart of the hoy, the despondent, bitter feelings of the man of genius, wrestling with adversity and struggling to acquire lame with star- ! vation stalking o'er his hearth-stone. He makes eilort after eliort to reach Italy, and alter repeated failures, at length succeeds. Every thing there seems yet more desolate to him than the land he had left, but with conscious power and abraveAtnerican heart he goes to work. Cloud after cloud Heeled away tame seemed to have selected him for her own, for he dallied not with her gilts. The praise of " Thor valsden" which pronounced him the greatest sculp tor since the days of Michael Angelo, only nerved htm to more daring feats. He finished his " Greek Slave," which is pronounced by connoisseurs the chef d'auvrt of all modern art. Mr. Lester, in speaking of the "Slave" and the "Eve,"says:? " All who gaze upon thera seem to go awav with that heautitul omoiiou which long lingers arounJ one, like some ideal form lhat lometimea, in the calm sleep of an narly spring morning, flits over the lancy, but cannot be lorgotton. It wakes us -wo quiet ourselves and try to sleep, and bring back the vision again. * * * * Un like other female statues I have seen, they combine all that is beautiful in the ideal that glows in the fancy, and all that is cheerful and home-like in the lair beings who cluster around our own firesides, and live in our hearts." Through all the changing scenes of Power's life, Mr. Lester in his " Conversations" carries the rea der. He says, " Powers would talk about the buck eyes of Ohio,the hunters and squatters of the West, and the dry, droll Yankees ; and I would make htm talk about the Michael Angelos, the Raphaels, and the Thorvalsdens ; and so we brought these great masters into strange company, for curiosity and hu mor, as well as poverty, have something to do in making men acquainted with strange bed-fellows. It will be seen by tins extract, that Powers was unwilling to talk about himself, and averse to hav ing an account of his life published; but when Mr. I .ester had written it, and stated his reasons for pub lishing it, the Sculptor's scruples gave way, and it was with his full consent it was presented to the '"This volume also contains an elaborate and ably written article on our present miserable Con sular system, which has been the jest of foreign powers. Take it all in all, this is a curious book, which everybody should read. We look upon Mr. Lester as one of the most remarkable men of the day?with a highly wrought and profound mind, a brilliant imagination, he is a perfect master of the human heart, and an ardent admirer of his country and her lree institutions. He is destined to attain a hi?h position, and deserves the thanks ot his coun try as well those of literary men. We shall look for the concluding volume with no ordinary interest.

Brooklyn City Intelligence, Accidents amb OrrESoci.-Uit evening, dome dry roods in the store oi Mr. Elijah Lewis, jun. 149 Fulton street, caught fire, and but for the promptitude and acti- , vity of the clerks connected with the establishment,and some lireinen who were instantly in attendance, in ex tinguishing the flames, a very extensive conflagration must have taken place. The prudent measuros resort ed to, however, and the celerity with which tho subdu ing process was applied, ronderod the calamity one of a -omparatively trifling and unimportant character. Yes terday afternoon, Mr. Scudder, of Myrtle street, in at tempting to drive his sulkey through an unfinished por tion of Clinton avenue -contrary to the express orders tud injunctions of Mr. Doughty, the contractor who has charge ol'the street?was upset by getting into contact i with some dirt carts, and was considerably in- i jured. On Friday night, at a late hour, a man whose name we have not ascertained, was detected by one of the city watchmen in the 1 commission of an act which was deemed to ho confra bonoi mortt, and, for the purpose of u voiding an arrest, bolted towards the river. Being closely pursued by the vigilant guardian of the night, he leapt the string piece ot the dock at the foot of Bridge street, into a strong full tido, and would Inevitably have been drown ed Imd ho not been rescued by some persons who were brought thither by tho alarm rap of tho watchman. The half suffocated and thoroughly well soaked fugitive was taken to " head quarters," and, after undergoing a searching examination as to his alleged wrong doing, was permitted-in pity for his suftorings-to depart m peace. Last night another individual was brought to the watch house charged with some slight breach of the law, and he also was discharged, on parole, by some of tho dignitaries connected with the department. A somewhat curious, and ceitainly ludicrous error of tho piess occurred under tne hesd ol Brooklyn Intelligence, irom which a careless and inadvertant reader would tem porarily infer that Mr. Robinson, a tespcctable glass ma nufucturer of Columbia street, had some relationship with a woman named Selina Magniro, who was sent to the County Jail us a common vagrant whereas he had no connection with any of the parties other than being the employer of the industrious and worthy husband ol that abandoned aud untortunato female.

Our peaceful village wit thia ?lty thrown into a stule of unusual excitement, by tlia following singular cir cumstances. On tlie fifteenth day of October last, three fugitive slaves, named Oeorge Washington, Jane M. Clay, and Elizabeth Jackson, presented themselves at the door of one of our warmhearted abolitionists of New York Mills, and supplicated assistance. Their story was briefly told?they represented themselves as runaway slaves from the State of Kentucky, and from the planta tion of Hon. Henry (Hay. Miss Jane said that she was the duughttr of Henry Clay, and Miss Jackson represen ted herself as the daughter of Oon. Andrew Jackson, who sold her mother and herself to Henry Clay some twenty years ago. Washington was formerly the slave of some of the Washington family, as appeared by his own story and his name. They were almost entirely destitute of clothing, and they appeared nearly famished lor the want of lood. Their miserable appearance and startling story so moved the hearts of the kind people of the above mentioned village, who are nearly all abolitionists of the bluest kind, that they called a small quiet meeting,had the poor slaves com.'ortably lodged, and theu proceeded to col lect the necessary means for their sate and comfortable journey to Canada, whither the runaways said thay were bound. In the course of a day or two, these zealous people had collected nearly ten dollars in hard cash, und be tweou twenty aud thirty dollars in the shape ot coats, vests, pants and shoes for the poor male; and dresses, bonnets, skirts, shawls, mantles, be, for the female sufferers by Southern tyranny. But the story of the slaves had not all' been told. Not yet had Southern cruelty been fully displayed to the weeping eyes and indignant hearts of the Northern liberators.? But when the first appeal to the sympathies of the unties had been met by generous answers?theu did tho poor lemalos bring up the " corps de reserve" of taeir suppli cation With tearful eyes and swelling lips thov pre ceeded to uncover their bosoms to the gaze of the ladies of the abolition family, at whose home they were shelter ed, and then did they point out to the wondering guze of these dear people the brand of Henry Clay, with a rod hei iron, imprinted upon their bosoms. Tbis caused a still greater excitement among the members of the society, und the slavo owuers received cursea and the slaves re ceived coppers moro freoly than before. At length the story of their wrongs being all told, the story of their miraculous escape lrom Clay's bloody keeper?of their long and todious journey from that distant State?their severe privations their bods of leaves?their food of severe privations roots aud bones?they took their departure, with many a warm garment and warm blessing, to cheer them on their way to Canada, where they might rest in peace.? Our good abolitionists slept soundly for a number of our fine October nights after the above sleep-sweetening acts of mercy to tho slave. So sweetly did they sleep Indeed, that their clothes' lines were robbed a few eveniugs since oi many more articles of clothing than they had given to the slaves Information was given of the robbe ry to our deputy sheriff, Oeo. Balis, Esq, who, upon hearing the circumstances, and having observed, some time previous, thase wandering slaves, he immediately suspected thorn as the thieves?so he proceeded to the hole or residence of the darkies, which is near the Con gregational Church at Whitesboro' about one a half miles distant from the village of New York Mills. Here was discovered a rich mino of all kinds of slaves slaves to rum-slaves to gambling aad licentiousness but no slaves belonging to Henry Clay or Andrew Jack son, although Miss Jane and Miss Elizabeth were found in the further extremity of the hole, clothed in the pur ple and fine linen which had been kindly given them by the aforesaid Anties. Oeorge Washington was also found Bole master of the premises and acting husband ol the Dinotis. The sheriff searched diligently for the sto len property, but though ho found everything else there, except money and bibles, yet, not a particle of the^ spoil of the "clothes line" could be found. He communicated n knowledge of these facts to the York Mills people, and learned from them that these s?me lodgers at the "hole," had defrauded the society out of about $30, and wheu the goo J abolitionists lound that the aforesaid slaves wore no slaves at all, except to their own particular pro pensities, and that they were old residents ot the village, their holy anger roso?a warrant for their arrest was issued by Squire Clark, directing the sherifl'to have the bodios of the said (Jeorge, Jane and Lizzy, before him at the house of D S. Wood, to answer unto tho said aboli tionists, to tho grave charge of obtaining money and goods under false pretences. Witnesses wore subpoena ed, und the whole strength of the "Antt" party turned out to swear the darkies to the prison. _ _ TMlobert Moore, Esq., appeurod for the people ?it being impossible to secure the services of Alvan Stewart, or Garrit Smith, ou account ol their absence from the coun ty. Thomas Spriggs, Esq., was counsel for the darkies. Many ladies and gentlemen wore examined upon oath, touching the matter, and they invariably testified that they would by no meaas have given them anything at all, had they not supposed them to be fugitive ?l*vos. The goods were proved to have beon delivered, and all seemed fair to send the poor shady people to jail. Con siderable levity was uoticed at the examination?far too much considering the dark ieatures of tne case or cases under consideration. No uttempt was made to show that the brands spoken of above bore any resemblance to the handwriting of Henry Clay or Andiew Jackson, ibis defect in the testimony brother Moore was not prepared to supply. He had evidently mistaken the cause of ac tion. The charge should have been " for scattering brands made by fire, or firebrands, among the abolition ists of New York mills to their great damage," 8tc The darkies were proved to hovo been residents of this State since their youth. One was raisod ill this town, one in Salina, and ono ill Jefferson co Alter the anti-slavery people had made themselves milticiuntiy agreeable, tho darkies, on motion of their counsel, were dischoiged by the court, by authority ot the mle of law found in 14 Wendell, which declares that 0 IUI6 OI IliW IUllUU III 11, W IIIVII indictment will not lit) where gifts or goods obtained under false pretences are merely charitable gifts. The darkies retiied again to their hole, where they will be happy to see any of their colored or uncolored friends at any time between 9 o'clock A. M. and 91 A. M. oi the next day. who may wish to congratulate them on their escape from a threatened northern bondage in Clinton prison. ..... j P S.?Some people say that the darkies were "nigged up," for the occasion and rent out by tho " boys ?" Clinical Lecture at the University. Satcbdav, Not. 15.?Dr. Mott's Clinique presented to day, as usual, a large number of very interesting cases. The* most interesting to the general reader are the lol 1. A young woman?a German by birth?who has been here before, and is now under treatment lor glandu lar swellings of the neck. This treatment, which has boon that most fashionable at the present day, lor all scrofulous diseases?con istirig of the use externally and internally of some preparation of iodine?has, in a certain sense, been eminently successful Since last we saw this patient, the swollings have diminished one-half, certainly ; but, upon enquiry, we find that in tho mean time the cough, the oppression at the chest, the night sweats?all the symptoms, in short, of localization of tho disease upon the lungs, and of general debility, have very much increased. A comprehensive view of the whole caso, then, leads us to distrust tho appearance of improvement which meets us in the diminution of the enlarged glands; and if we should follow up the same course of treatment, as we would, if guided by that ap pearance, we should onlv hasten the uniortunate event, by assisting to transfer the disease to a vital organ-the lungs-and fasten it there. This we ought, by all means, to prevent, if possible. Eor that purpose, we propose to suspend hostilities towards the scrofula, as it appear* externally, and endeavor to save the lungs by me me thod of revulsion, or counter-irritation Thia is most commonly done by an issue in the arm. 8ho ought to take, at the same time, the naptha of wood, and tho cold infusion of wild cherry hark. Dr. Mott remarked, that, for thia disease, unfortunate ly so prevalent in the middle latitudes oi both continents, in consequence of tho variable temperature and sudden vicissitudes conjoined with humidity, icc., of those lati tudes, we know of no certain remedy. The preparations of iodine approach more nearly to it than anything olse we have, but they are still very far from being a specific. He (Dr. M ) would venture the assertion that a remedy would yet be found, and placed in the hands of tho pre sent or a future generation of physician*, by which scro fula might be controlled aud cured as certainly a* inter mittents now are by bark, or syphilis by mercurv. He bad lio doubt whatever that such a remedy existed in the storehouse of nature, and that it would yet be discovered ami employed to the incalculable benefit of the human race. ?2. A woman presented herself. with her arm in a sling, asserting that her collar hone, which woa broken eleven weeks ago, remained ununited. The hone was found to lie united perfectly, and the only difficulty that remained was rigidity of the parts about the shoulder joint, very greatly limiting the motion ol the arm, tho consequence of keeping the erm in one position so long a time. Re medy-motion, both active aud passive, as in carrying weights, and by the application of external force, and the application of any liniment that might suit the pa tient's fancy. 3 A young man, 31 years old. a barber, stated that two years and a half since he had a paralytic attack of the left side, lie liad mostly recoveied, Dut came for advice on account of some slight remains ol the affec tien in the hand and foot. Previous to the attack ho had been an intemperate eater, and was constantly troubled with obstinate constipation, a lino illustration of the truth that a hollow muscle is often impeded in its opera tion by over distension. There is undoubtedly a great deal more than is suspected of disease from this cause, intemperance in eating. The moment we eat too much, that moment we begin to dig our graves. The treat ment recoommonded in this caso, was the application of the strychnine ointment, and mechanical support, somewhat after the manner of I'emborton, who wrote a valuable work on tho use of splints in the "lopped hands of painters and gla/.iers. 4. A boy affected with stammering, was brought in by liis father as a candidate for an operation. Dr. M. said that the operation was easily performed, and attended with up injury to the patient, and lie was quite willing to perform it, but ho felt bound to ssy that it was for the most part a very useless one. Ha thought he was safe in saying that he had performed the operation two or three hundred times, ami though frequently thern was temporary benefit, be did not know five cases out of the whole number permanently relieved. There wore also t-vo case* of Natvui Matrrni, one on the end ol the nose, the other at the inner angle of the eye, operated upon by cauterization, with red-hot neo dies ; and two cases of converge t squint relisved ; sll which operations were performed in such a manner as to call lorth the hearty applause of the class. These clinical lectures are of immense benefit to thevery large class of students who are attending the lecttires et the University this session, and tho practical lesson* that they thua obtain in the tioiitment of all classes of disease that are prescribed for in their presence, ere most vnlus ble; and moreover, almost every week, as it occurred dnring yesterday's rliniqtie, tho ITofeasor had an oppor tunity of showing them practical exemplifications of many of tha principles that he had detailed to them in his lectures during the week. The schools in Philadelphia have lately followed the example of the New York schools, and have established these cliniques. They required something of the kind, ss in the matter of practical and clinical instruction they are far behind New York, which Is yearly surpassing them in not only this, hut all tha other-brandies of In struction.
