It commenced early in the morning and con tinued without intermission till 4 in the afternoon, and all our streets were literally rivers of waters. By an ac - curate observation, taken at a rain gnage kept on Fort Hill, it appears that 3 inches 8-8th and MAth of water fell during the day. The churches were thinly attended and rcveral wrre a failure. In the evening, the weather be rime fiiu and clear. A oool north-wester succeeded the south wind, and our streets this morning were dry and frozen ; the air sharp and, bracing, and filled with sun shine. During port of th4 day, the wind waa very high and squally.

It will be recollected that we gave, a (lay or two since, a few particulars of the horrible atrocities said to have been committed in Greene, in this State. The examination of John Johnson, aged about seventy years, and worth about $70,000, whu is charged with rape, murder, nod other crimes, is now goiug on in Binghampton. [Krem the Chenango Telegraph.] R,<ii?ui?roi< Not.

Hundred* of people examined the wood* day alter day, but nothing wa* af terward* heard of her. The complainant attempted to show that the fact* connected with the rape were dis closed by Mrs. Bolt to Dr. Purple, of Greene ; but the magistrate deemed the testimony inadmissible.

Johannes Eonge, the Luther of the nineteenth century, as he is termed. Our readers are aware that the reformation which is, at present, going on with such force, in Crermany, Austria, Poland, and other countries on the conti nent of Europe, was originated by an humble Priest, named Johannes Ronge. It commenced about a year ago, at the exhibition of a shirt, or tunic, which was in the possession oi the Romish authors ties, and which, they alleged, was worn by our Saviour. It was customary for the Catholics, at each exhibition of this shirt, to make pilgrimages from all parts of Europe, to see it, which they were al lowed to do, on paying a small amount of money. In this way, there was a considerable revenue rais ed by the Church authorities. At the last exhibi tion, by Bishop Analdi, at Treves, this humble priest, Johannes Ronge, denounced the shirt as au imposition, and the exhibition of it a deception, by the Church, to raise money from the superstition oi the people. The standard of revolt being thus raised, Ronge made many converts; and, after a short time, thousands "came his adherents. He than took broader ,'r< inii and declared against some of the print the Holic Church; particularly againt- priesthood, and the confesional, t the Catholics should be independent 01 ,f. The reforma tion, as it is called, has progressed rapidly, and it is now spreading over Continental Europe. In every town where M. Ronge presents himself, thousands come forth to greet him. The people crown him with flowers; the municipal bodies present him with addresses; young men ask to be allowed to take the horses from his carriage; women invoke the blessings of heaven on his mission, and the cannon itself thunders his welcome. Such a movemeut as this?so widely reaching ; so all-embracing; aud that, at the voice of one man, the world has not seen since the days of Luther, ami it is very appropriately styled the new German re formation It has extended even to the United

States, and there is now a Catholic congregation in Cincinnati,who disavow any connection with the Pope, and maintain the same principles as are up held by the reformed Catholics in Germany. Arrival of Winter, <Ncc.?Our intelligence from the north, by this morning's mails, is that the cold weather has finally set in, and that navigation on the canals is, by this time, closed. All those inter ested in the movements of produce to market ought to be thankful for the continuance of mild weather to so late a period in the season. It enabled them to get into market a much larger supply of bread stuffs, &c., than ever before in any one season. Annexed are the particulars of the weather at various points:? [From the Albany paper* of Not. 49.] The weather has very much changed wittun the last twenty-four hours, and at this present writing, tho at mosphere feels as though we were shortly to have winter in earnest. The thermometer stood to-day, at 4 P. M., at twenty six degree*, being four degrees below the freezing point. A mow storm is predicted to coma nit' within the next forty-eight hours The wind is blowing from the north-west, with occasional flurries of snow ; and the forwarders, shippers, Sto., on tiie docks, are bestirring themselves with tho greatest activity. We notice that a heavy rain lell in New York yesterday morning, with a temperature like that of spring. Over 100 canal boats are laid up in'the basin, and double that number have yet to discharge their freights. Tho wind worked round to the northwest yesterday. The weather is clear and cold to-day. The canal cannot re main open much longer. Fortunately, howevar, for our forwarders, thoy are nearlv prepared for the change. The boats of the Merchant's Line, and we believe those of some of tho other lines, are alt in the basin. On no former occasion has the business of the canal been " donn up cleaner." [From the Boston Journal, Nov. is.J It was not a pleasant day yesterday ; the rain fell in quantities, which reminded us of the showers on tho equinoctial line. Between 7 A. M., and 4 P. M., the amount of rain which had descended was three inches andlour-tenths, as indicated,by the rain-giiage, an amount which has but seldom been exceeded within the same number of hours in this climate. The clouds disperse'! towards evening, and this morning we have a gloriou sun and a bracing air, irom the W.N.W. We understand that rain fell in great abundance yesterday in some partn of New Hampshire and Maine. Between Portsmouth and Saco, the F.astern Kailroad had suffered some, the embankments having received serious injury?so much so as to prevent the passago ol the cars, until tho evil can be remedied. [From the Buffalo Advertiser, Nov. 47.] About half the fleet, some fifty vessels, lelt westward with a fair wind, yesterday, but were caught in the night by the prevailing snow utorm from the east Ol the whole fleet, only one has returned, .the schr. Lexington, and she found it impossible to proceed, in consequence of the thick weather. Indeed, the present appearance of the weather would iudicnte an almost immediate closing of lako navigation. The steamer Missouri returned from Detroit, last evening, in company with the Jeffer son, which has been lying in ordinary at Erio. The J. is to be stripped?her engine to be placed in a new boat to be built here for Mr. Heed, this winter, and the hull converted into a coal barge. Such transformation can be effected easily, either by making her a propeller, or by the use of canvas alone. The Nile and Constitution are both up for Detroit again, as well as the l.exuigton The former remains there, and the Missouri is up for her winter berth at Erie. The tchr. McWhorter, driven in by the late gale, is still here, but an effort is making to get her back to a lower lake port, fer the purpose ol be ing rebuilt?her cargo ot salt can be disposed of here, and the other freight sent forward by steam. The Smead is yet unheard of. The Avenger brought in, |last night, the mainboom and canvas of some lost vessel.? The brig Missouri is at Ashtabula discharging a cargo of corn. Tho Smlinrl says, that on entering, the current of the creek being strong, she would have gone ashore but for the steamer Franklin, by wnich she was hauled in. The sloop Emma, with a load of corn, came in on Hatur day night. The schooner North Carolina, in attempting to come in failed, and went ashore, head on. The brig Alert attempted to come in hut failed, owing to the strong southwest wind and the current. Failing to get in, sho cast anchor, and lay for a time near the pier. Three men with great difficulty and lisk ol life, reached tho shore in the boat with a line, but the vessel dragged her anchor, and Captain Scoville was obliged to slip his cable, and maka tor thia port, light handed rs he was. The M. Ney was bound from Cleveland to Detroit, and is said to be badly damaged?her cargo consisted of 49 packages of merchandise, so grindstones, 300 kegs nails, 130 bars and 40 bundle* iron, 4M boxaa glass, ? anvils, 40 kegs powder. The Mississippi returned from Mackinaw to Cleveland with a cargo ol fish on Monday, and the Gazette the same day, sale with 4,700 bushels wheat from Chicago. The Buckeye and Lodi were at Cleveland. The if Strong is at f.rie with a broken crank, but was repairing : also the United States steamer Michigan, Abert, and cutter Erie. The Madiscn and prop. Phn-nix arrived side at Chicago on the 40th. The blow ol Sun day and Sunday night, was uncommonly severe on lake Ontario, and there la some solicitude lelt lor the safety ol vessels. The schooners Merrick and Meitisou, arrived at Oswego on Monday, with wheat fiom hike Michigan. They came out of the canal before the blew came on, and hove ton, off Oeneiee, where they rode out the gale. The St. Lawtence, with 6,BOO bushels of wheat froai De troit, also got in safe. Internal navigation cannot with stand such weather as this, and wo may predict a qnick closing up of all the canals. The snow is falling fast and thick, which tho still waters must soon * laid to. At Erie on Monday, the weather had changed from unusual mildnesi to great severity. Snow feu all day dnrlng Sunday, and lea formed half an Inch thick. The Ohio. Miami and Wsbssh. and Erie canals, nil mint give way to the element*. The canal laat year opened on April l&th, and cloned on November 20th, affording 222 days of navigation.

The Herald contained a statement, a short time ago, with regard to the copper mining business ol Lake 8u perior, which may create a wrong impression on those who are uuacquainted with the facts. That article said that operations had ceased, and that those who had in vented monoy in the business would probably be losers by it. It is true that there is not so much doing now as during the summer, und for the reason that navigation has closcd for the season; aud consequently men and materials caunot bo cent up heieaftor until spring, but there are a number of companies actively engaged, whoso operations will be carried on vigorously, in de veloping tho resources of the mines during the winter. Among these are tlie Lake Superior and the Pittsburgh Companies, both of which have already sent down h large quantity of ore?the Mackinac and Lake Superior ?the Ksgle Harbor end the North American.?The lo cations of the above companies ure in the vicinity of Copper Harbor, except the Mackinac and Lake Supe rior. which has about twenty miles of locations in tho Torcupino Mountains, and at Preique Isle and Back Riveis, in the immediate vicinity of tbe Lake, containing numerous veins of copper and silver. In addition to the above, there are other companies preparing to commence operations early in the spring, of which the New Yoik aud Michigan, tho National, the North Western, the Bultimoie, the Old Settlers, and the Ontanagon, are prominent. All the companies named are of tnu most substantial character, with sufficient means to carry on the business properly, and having persevering and energetic men at their heads The discovery of this valuable mineral district is not a new thiug, though it is but a few years that its extent and richness have been known; it is but recently that the United States has obtained the land from the Indians, and now that the difficulties in the way of working the veins are obviated, the time must soon arrive when we will be enabled to export copper, instead ol importing about two millions woith a year. Under these circumstances, I cannot porceive how money will be lost by investing in the copper business, in England the work is prosecuted with great prolit, though at immense expense, from the necessity oi working the mines fifteen hundred feet be low the surface, while the ore on Lake Superior comes up to tho surface, is nea. the lake, and presents every ne cessary facility for the business, besides. The reperts which have been presented to the legislature of Micbi gon, by Dr. Houghton, the State Weoiogist, shows that the ore of Lake Superior yields a much greater per coutage of copper, and of a better quality than that of KugUnd, ami is fully equal in richness to any in the world.

Tki [ilinaii Statt Debt?Effrrti to Redeem the Character Hf the State, fc 4-c. I presume you seldom receive any information of the itate of affairs of the Suckers of the " Prairie State," and probably think we are so deeply sunken in the mire of insolvency, that we are altogether beneath the notice of the illuminator of the age?the illimitable Herald. In irder to show you that we are still struggling to extri cate ourselves from the " unpleasant fix," as one of our iag? legislators expressed it, into which we havft unfor innately become involved, it will only be necessary to inform you of the effort now making by our sagacious legislature, tu<led and assisted by our " dear friends" and ellow mi He rem in affliction, the bond-holders of Illinois, o accomplish this consummation so devoutly desired by Dotti parties You must know, then, that after a long and lainful travail, a plan was brought forth, by the united .vmlom of our State, in general council assembled, and iije agents of our creditors, by which the prostrated and ?inking credit of our ill-starred commonwealth, was to >e galvanized into life. The plan adopted whs briefly tbis : The bond-holders igreed to advance *1.600,000, for the purpose of com. ideting the " Michigan and Illinois Canal," on the fol lowing conditions That the State should assign them >11 her public lands, together with the use and revenues of the canal, after its completion, until ttiey realized a ?um equal to their debt, and in the mean time pay them a small rate of interest on the amount. Alter the bond holders had obt.tine 1, in this way, payment, the canal to revert buck and become the property of the State. To ex scute thin contract, it wits ugieed that three trustees be appointed?two on the part olthe bond-holders and oneon lie part of the State who should have the entire man agement and control of the whole matter. A meeting of the bond-holders and tntir representatives was held m New Vork, in May last, and .Mr. Leavett, 1'iesident of the Am. Kx. Bank, an.l t npt. Swift, of the U. 8. Army, were chosen on the part of the creditors of the State, and uliout the same time, <iov Kord appointed lien Jacob Kry, on behalf of the State. Into the haads of these guardians, the child of our hopes was committed, to be reared to manhood. And it is lor the purpose of inform ing your readers, many of whom undoubtedly feel an in terest in this subject quite as deep as the people of Illi nois, how these agents have thus far executed their trusts, that I address you. It is with no ill-feeling to wards any of the individuals, of whose acts I feel it my duty, as a citir.en of Illinois, and a friend to the great work in which we all have so deep an interest, to speak. Uut being satisfied that a speedy and radical reform on the part of those who control its management, is indis pensihle, or the consummation of the object lu view caii never be realized, I feel called upon to sound the alarm. The mutterings of dissatisfaction and distrust, " not loud hut deep," which has already manifested it-elf among the people, at the course pursued by the trustees, hat excited the apprehensions of the many, that the tax lor raising the interest would not be submitted to by our citizens. These symptonsof rebellion, together with se veral articles published in a New York naper, in relation to the matter, have had the effect of drawing out the trustees, through Gen. Fry, in an " Address to the people of Illinois," in which they labor to show that " all's well.'' But, notwithstanding this soothing cor dial, so kindlv administered, the " dear people ' still cling to their former opinion, that " there is somathing rotten in Denmark." Messrs. Leavett and Swift, soon after being appointed to offlce, made a hasty visit to Illi nois, and being joined by Oen. Fry, they organized themselves, appointed a chief engineer?very modest ly voted themselves a salary of $A000 ! per year oul of the funds of the canal, and took their departure?the former it is supposed to attend to the business of the hank over winch he presides, and the other to the duties of his profession?since which time nothing has been seen or heard of either on the line of the canal. Possibly Captain Swift may be on a Don Quixotte expedition to Texas, to fight the horrible Mexican shadows th?' flit over that " Paradise ;"and for aught we know to the eontrary, Mr. Leavett may be engaged in Wall street, selling shares and stock in the Lake Superior Copper Mines. Wherever they may be, or whatever they may bo engaged in, it is very certain they are not in Illinois, at tending to the completion of the canal. Such being the case, tne canal drags its slow length along, and like a consumptive patient, seems to be gradually sinking to a premature grave. The whole line was put under con tract the 18th of August last; the contracts binding the trustees to take an estimate once in three months, and to pay the umount, less 1'2 per cent, in current New Vork funds. An estimate was made about the 10th of October, and the contractors were promised their money by the 1st of November. In consequence of great expense in procuring tools and implements?lumber for shantees, stables, Sc., together with bringing laborers on to the line?most, if not all, of the contractors, who are men of limited means, ha 1 exhausted all the funds they pos sessed long before the day of promised payment. To any one at all acquainted with public work, the difflcultiei and embarrassments under which a contrac tor labors, wheu destitute of the " sinews ol war," can readily ho conceived. Looking futitaiil, therefore, to the 1st of November with as much solicitude and aiixie ty as the Millerites looked for the end ot the world, they struggled along. It finally came ; but, alas ! no current Kinds came with it. The announcement that " no money would be paid until the ljth " fell like a pall on the nigh raised expectations of the poor cauaiers. " Hope deferred maketh the heart sick," saith the pro verb, and the disappointed and disheartened contractor realized its truth. They sought, as a special act of mer cy, fifteen days' more grace from their tormenting cred itors, which, as there was no remedy, was granted ; while the clamors of their raveaous workmen tor "our rent funds," already too long withheld, could be ap pcased only by distributing among them such husks ol the grain of life they hungered after as was afforded by a shin plaster factory, located somewhere in Wis konsan Territory, known as the " Wiskousan Mu rine and Fire Insurance Company," as a great lavorto the distressed contractors, the engineers, clerks, he., employed in the canal ofHce, voluniuuiy offered to lurnish them out ef their own private fuads, an amount of this trash, equal to the amount due them. And, a* "take what you can get, or get nothing," some accepted of the kind offers made them, while outers less inclined to submit to imposition declined, and stopped work. In this way thiugs weut on until the second appointed time arrived, being the 16th of the month, but laithless and treacherous as the former, it lias given no current funds to the waiting multitude of expectants that have been anxiously looking tor them. Wiskousan lags are still tendered to the now desperate croakers lor current funds, and tho private resources ol the above named en gineers, clerks, ?tc., are by no means exhausted. Hov; it is possible for persons employed at salaries of from (:*60 to $500 per year, to save out of two or three mouth* service, a sum equal to the whole estimates due the con tractors on a line of canal 100 miles in length, amount ing to several thousand dollars, is to many, wholly unac countable,'strange ami mysterious. Bui any one initiat ed in the mysteries of VVali street, has no difficulty in solving the question. It is simply a " business transaction," that would at tract scarcely any notice in Wall street, but among tho ignorant suckers it excites wonder. But seriously, is not every principle of justice, honor and right, violated by such barefaced imposition and outrage on innocent and trusting men J The veil behind which the trustees seek to hide from the public their iniquitous acts, it too transparent to deceive, while it serves to illustrate their own meanness " Wiskousan shiuplasters,' as they am called, can be bought like rotten eggs, at the buyer's ofler, while New Vork funds command a premium ol two per cent In order to turn " an nonest penny " into their own pockets, they withhold lrom the contractor^ their just dues, and seek to drive them with the lash ol necessity, to receive worthless rags instead. Surely men who will resort to such base means to put money in their purse, are unfit to have the management ot a work of such importance as the " Michigan and Illinois Canal." Let tne bondholders attend to this matter at once, or they are destined to sustain losa, where they londly hoped to realize gain. A special meeting of the Legislature has been called, and I doubt not the subject will be brought beforeUhem for investigation. I have, Mr. Editor, " told but a plain unvarniahed tale, extenu ated nothing,or set down aught in malice."?More anon.

He hat no companions; he is not al lowed to spuak save vl hen spoken to by the officers of the orison; he is allowed no light, and must pass the long J nours from 6 P. M. to 6] A. M. in his cell, with nothing to ' break the monotony of these long and dreary nights save tho watch cry of the guard. An effort is made by hia friends to procure Mr. Torrey'? release. But before this can be successful, he must raise the sum of 1500 dollars, to remunerate those wuo have lost their slaves by his agency; and allow that he has violated the law, which T. now strenuously denies. And then a compromise must be made with the Virginians, who also have lost slaves. A requisition for Mr. Torrey, from tho Governor of Virginin, is at the prison: and as soon as he is free from the Maryland Penitentiary he will be carried to Virginia, unless satisfaction is made. 1 hope that soon he may be free.
