Ni M \ot*k, Sundiy, Derciiibtr 4",IM5. !V? gotlutlona With Kn?Jttnd> In upite of the coutradtctiuua in several of the news , uegotMUM* with England have been auHpeuueu, we reiterate our conviction that such la not the (act. We have no r> :..-on.'.ble doubt of the statement that tiie two governments are now in the most friendly attitude 10 each other?and that it' the ne gotiations ure not favorably begun, they are in such a state of preparation, both iti London and Wash ington, as to be considered in the most favorable OJudltion lor early activity and eventual settlement, it no unloraeen difficulty interferes. We have reasons to believe, also, that these nego tiations will embrace the settlement of" the Oregou boundary, a? *ej[ a* some ne^ commercial re^ul^ tion *or increased cuxamerctal intewouiw between the two nation", in the articled breKdstulf^. This 11-1 point dm' !?< i U,-it of negotiation, us well as o! mutual 1<-:?i-1 ti.on, oo boih sides oi the water. Or the .. i tb. t'.-?e views we have not the ?lightc.-t doubt. No authentic denial can be made by the representative* or organs of either goveru men.t All the points of dilference may be settled in les? than tp.iee month*?yet they maybe protract ed lor years, undercertain contingencies. C?.:MPt.M- Tp.urs?The Press and the Bar ? The trial of Virgil Knapp, for the murder ol tarah F-c<- -r, con.'rnenced on Friday Ik t, and the same I .; ,-t which was enacted in the attempt to procurc a jury to try the case of Polly Bodine, has commenct ed ia this ease. Already there have been two or three panels of jurors exhausted in the attempt to procure twelve men who have not read the pipers, and formed an opinion as to the guilt or innocence of the accmed party. The probability is that the sh-rftr will be obliged to summon several more pa n-Is, before a jury, who shall be strictly an impnr tiil one, as the law now stands, can be obtained ? This will of course be attended with vast expense, besides the inconvenience it will cause to our citi zens in taking them away from their pursuits. A* the law is now administered, a man who has read the newspapers of the day, in which murders are recorded as soon as they happen, and has form ed an opinion either one way or the other, is incom petent to act as a juror, although he swears that his mind is unprejudiced, and open to receive further evidence. Now, iu tfoisciiy, where there are more than 1<>0, 000 papers printed daily, and read probably by 2iX?, 000 people, it is almost impossible to obtain a jury who hive not read t ie murder cases, ou which they may be summoned to serve as jurors. Anotherevil in car rying out this law, is that the most competent, be cause the most intelligent men, are incapacitated and excluded, and those ca^es, upon the termination of which depends the life of the accused, are com mitted to the judgmert of the most ignorant; for who but the most ignorant, are not in the habit dai ly of reading the pipers 1 The law, as it is, certain ly conflicts with the administration of justice, arid the sooner it is amended the better. It might have doue two or three centuries back, but in this day of cheap publications, it will not answer. It is behind the age. It generally happens, too, in those cases, that the members of the bar make it a point ot going out of the record, and make at;acks on the press. The reason of this is pretty obvious. For many years past, the bar, which was intended to have the law carried out, to act as assistants to the bench for the purpose of vindicating us majesty, has devoted its energies almost entirely iu attempting to clear of fenders of the penalties which they incur by their crimes, nntil it has become a settled principle, that an offender, no matter how enormous his crimes may be, can escape their penalty, provided he has the nece^ry means to fee members of the bar. Against this jierversion, the press has spoken loudly for yean, past, and hence the antagonism which ex ists b'.tween the bar and the press. The press, the great conservator of the people's rights, has been loud in its denunciations of this perversion of the law, and in return, it is abused by every puny legal aspirant in all the courts in the land. How long is this state of tilings to la:* 1 Will not the State Convention apply a remedy ? Inefficiency of the Police System.?The police systeinof New Yoik is entirely inefficient for the purpose of preventing crime; and not only is it in efficient, but it is actually a promoter of crime?for the want of having over it a supervising |>ower, or controlling head, to whom the subordinates ought to be accountable. As the system now stands, the officer* are ap pointed by the Aldenr.en and Assessors of the several ward*, to whom atone they are accountable, and on whom they are dependent for their berths What is the consequence ? Instead of being on the alert to detect thieves, burglars and other offenders, you may see every low porter house and rum-shop in the toveral wards, tilled wiiu these gentry, dis cussing politics, and forming plans and movements to promote the success* of those Aldermen and oth er oliicers ot the several wards by whom they re ceived their appointments, and on the election ot whom next April they depend to retain their si tuations. In the meantime, the vagabonds of our city have lull scope to practice their depreda tions every day, unobserved, and hourly breaches of the peace are occurring, while our quondam preservers of the peace and guardians of the city, are toasting their shins at the stoves in the grog shops, and conning over means to promote the elee lion of their candidates and defeat the wiil of the people. How long are the present abuses and corruptions tn the municipal government to exist* Will the eyes ot the people never be opened 1 We trust that tue next spring election will give a remedy. In deed, we have no doubt of it. Fashionable Boakdimo Schools.?From our hearts, w* pity the present late and future prospects, of the little creatures consigned to then : fashionable convents of vanity and ostentation. Is this educa tion, this fashionable boarding school system 1 If i t in, then, in our estimation, it is a bad syctem of bad education. It is a system of show and ex hibition, lrom beginning to end. The beginning is uh:>w?the first thing is a showy house, showy fur niture, showy carpets, showy dress?all this show being in id? voila, u " respectable establishment." Every future step is a vain idle show?the mouths ol the poor children ure fillrd with a show of showy words; they are taught to simjier about oxygen and hydrogen,and all " the concatenation of self-exis tences proceeding in a reciprocal duplicate ratio, which naturally produce a problematical dialoi ism;" then they ure taught to believe that excellence of all kinds consists in n show; arid thus, when the course of folly ia run through, they come forth upon the world mere shows, manufactured dolls and toys, tiu^ht to sneer .it all that is solid and sound > and to admire all that is glitter and show. The system is bad? it is showy, and attracts the wonder, and gets the sup|>ort of showy people; but it in the contempt and pity of all persons of sound sense and good understanding. Nkwspapir Chanok ?The partnership of Mor ris, Wiiltd iV Fuller, of the Mirror, has bten dis solved?the two former going out altogether, and the Utt-r, Mr. Fuller, assuming all the responhibil ity hereafter. We have heard that a Mr Clsson, the iton-in-law ol the President of the State Hank, will have an interest in the Mirror hereafter. Willis' letter* will still continue for a wljile?but what be comes of fleorge P. Morris we know not. Probably he will retire to CJnderclifl, and cultivate lyncpot try and healthy potatoes. * From Bt'ENos Avrk.v?The barque Mason Har ney, Cupt. Scott, was below with eight ?r ten days later nccouiiis than those received by the Falcontr, at Boston. Mock Jpstui Shops.?We earnestly direct the attention of the Mayor to the sw ladling and false pretence " operations" which are daily practiced at the " Tombs," by a set ol unprincipled vagabonds who hang about the police office and its vicinity, and who are well known an "X-native" marshals, ?? Peter Funks," "tkinninp," luwyers, and grey headed " niggers," acting us bail-masters lor these worthies. There is scarcely a day pisaes but what j a con.-tructive larceny i;i perpetrated; or, it' buei ness should b- dull and money short, a little forgery is resorted to, by way of pastime. The pow ers of the magistrates, in th:s particular, ap pear to be very limited. For these vagabonds can be teen every day, strutting in and out of the po'ice oilice like lords?also standing on the stoop, euquuing of *traugers their business; and they ' frequently obtain sums of money trom the unsus i petting stranger, under the pretence ot being oili , ot*rs or lawyers. The Mayor has the power of breaking up these nefarious operation*, by placing a policeman at the "Tombs," expressly to caution strangers igninst these marauders. But if that should tail, why, adopt the " banner," properly la belled with a cauuon to strangers. This " banner" was well applied, and worked to admiration among the " mock auction shops," and caused the majcri ty ol them to close their doors. The Mayor and Chief of Police deserve greut praise tor the efficiency and vigilance with which they have purified the city ot m?ny evils; and they would be able to do much more, but for the wretch ed imbecility of present Common Council. iNTCREffiro fao.M lUvri.?The barque llecla, Ca,'t. Hoyt, arrived last evening from Port au Prince, whence she sailed on the 7th inst. Our correspondent sends us some interesting in telligence. Ttir difficulties between the Dominicans and Hay tiens continued in full force. A French commer cial agent, residing at Cape Hayuen, had been or dered ofi" by the blacks, for acting as a sort of spy for the Dominicans. Not leaving immediately, he was marched down to the beach, and made to swim off to a Haytien man-of-war, on board of which he received a severe flogging This created some sensation, and may lead to the blockade of all the Ilayiien ports by the French. A steamer conveying information ot the occurrence, h-id been despatched to the French Admiral on the Coast, but had not returned on the (ich inst. Will not this affair afford an excellent opportunity for the French to recovsr their lost colony 1 Gouoh's Case.?Moilal Obliquity.?The case ! ol John B. Gough ulfords a singular prool of de praved moral feeling, of a confounding and inter mixing of right and wrong. In a word?of a gross moral obliquity, in a certain class ol society, which calls loudly for our honest and fearless animadver sion, as a public journalist. This individual, who, it appears, "out of his own tnouth," has been deceiving the people, preaching up temperance while he was accustomed to get drunk ; pending days and nightd together in houses of debauchety, while he pretended to be the pious pattern and teacher of virtue and morality. Strange as it may npp?r, this individual has enlisted "all the piety," both of the press and of the community, ia his favor. It is, iu fact, a singular spectacle?a moral phenomenon, worthy of exciting admiration, and of leading to enquiry. Here is a man cuilty of deception and vice of the lowest, filthiest character, a:id he assumes tke proud position of a moral tear her?talks of his dignity, hurls defiance and re- | proech upon those *ho relate his deeds and doings, and finds a strong party to support, encourage, de fend, and even applaud him! Now, however painful the task may be?subjecting us, as it not unfrequently does, to reproach and obloquy for our fidelity and truth?it becomes our solemn duty to act, in matters of public morality, like a Hoard of Health?to expose the danger of the spread of false principles, and to put, as it were, in quarantine, the pernicious conduct and doctrines which are evr struggling to sally forth from their hiding places, to spread moral devastation in the community. There is a class of rogues in every greit city, called receivers, or, in technical language, "fences;" and these men :-re by every police department, justly regarded as the most dangerous men in society? the main promoters of crime?step-ladders, leading hundreds to the grllows?and the cause of all the robberies, burglaries, thefts, and attendant assassina tions, which render great cu es like great ulcers in the body politic. These miserable wretches, who encourage and promote crime by the countenance and support they give to rogues, thieves, burglars, and pick-pockets, are not, however, the only " fences " There exists iu our community a set of moral "fences," or receivers, against whose pernici ous practices it is our duty to give public warning. These are the men who receive, countenance, and patronise a certain class of rogues, as in this mat ter ol Gough, and attempt to deceive the people, and confound all right ana wrong, by boldly assum ing 'o prove that a rogue is not a rogue?that u drceiver i? not a deceiver?that a drunkard is not a drunkard, and that a brothel lounger is a "nice, pious, good" mm. These rnoraJ "fences" form an absolute party and a powerful clique in American society; they are like the ?'Thu?;s" of Iudia, and till we now take the task in hand?have not been exposed and shown up as they deserve.. They are the more dangerous, becau-i * t. rv inoveunsusiiected and even highly honored in soei and under the garb of religion, they tain of ; ? :y and virtue, and are great supporters of "the Mited preaching" of what they call the gospel. Tney are jhe friends end supporters of "depraved respectability, mid re spectable depravity;" they hold up and prop up the rich miscreant, the high life swindler, tne clerical delinquent, the temperance drunkard; they "con sort with thieves, and are partakers with adulter ers," provided the criminals they support belong to their class, and favor their "cause"'?that cause being a clique of cant and hypocrisy, of men held together by ttie mesmeric attraction of mutual sup port, through thick and thin; who coin mom y, honor, and respectnbility by grave and pious show and cant, who stiect to groan at the shocking wickedness of their neighbors, and set themselves i:p as the ex lusive " good men, 'to the exclusion and utter damnation oTall sinners. These are the moral receivers, supporters and white washers of such men as Gough and Avery, and promoters of deep hidden crime, encouragers of centeel vice and pious iniquity; and they are a foul blot uoon the age?a moral ulcer in the commu nity?confounding the distinctionsbetween right and wrong, and perverting the moral sense of the iieople. They have had their reign, their full sway, for a long time; few have dared to o}>en their mouths against them; they have had a perfect monopoly of all religion, piety, and virtue; every body has been obliged to pay them, to court their favor, and fear their enmity. If any one dared oppose, resist or *X[>ose them, he was immediately an outcast, driven beyond the pale of society?an atheist, an infidel, an enemy of religion: for none possess religion or virtue but they. Thus they have held the rod oTterror and denunciation over society,and the uarbot black-coated pi? ty and "solemn seriousness," exer cised an iron reign of moral terror in ihe communi ty. Hut their reign is nearly at an end?it is disco vered that religion is something different from their "piety"?that it has been abusetl and trodden to death by enemies who have pu( on its outward garb, and assumed its look* nnd appearance, as a mere mask, to build up a a power in socie ty, to make money, to get honor and respectability, to pructice villany, and to deceive mankind. It is their txprit rfu rorpt which leads them to counte n.ince and hold up the evil deed? of such men as Gough and others. It is our duty to expose the moral perversion, this moral obliquity of judgment, and to show up the real guilt of these ??fenrrt"? these patrons of ru ned reputations and whitewash es of detected cheats On then- principle*,and according to these viewe, Carnp and Wilk?* were wrong in concealing, us th?-y did at first, the delinquencies cif (rough?Hnd Hale and Iittil**ck, in Mil! attempting to paM off such it creature lor a sunt?a Christian?a |ieree cuted man.

The following is the extract relative to th'" oc j currence, from the log book of the Cambridge Dec.

The oaique win full of wa'er, fore and mizon musts gone, main top mast gone oif the cap ; the cabio and toreeastln were entirely washed away, and the whole ship's company were living in tho long' boat. At 4 P M., we had succeeded in getting all the crow, (about onohalf of whom w ere disabled) and most of their clothing, ou board our ship, and left the wreck in a sink iug ktate. Thus, our packets prove of great value in a hu mane point of view. This is the filth or sixth ves sel that has been fallen in with, in the last few years, by our packets : and swells the list of the rescued to upwards of two hundred. Kxplosio* ok the German Opkka?More Par ticulars ?Signor Pogliani called ou us yesterday, statiug his wish to correct the statement of Signor Palmo, which apppeared in our paper the day pre vious, and which Pogliani considered a9 injurious to his character. The following is Signor Pog. ham's statement:? The proceed* for the tint week's par lormunce of th* German Opera, were $li39 74 Of this in nay, Sig.

Palmo. . , $50 00 Signor Pogliani, in answer to the statement made by Signor Palmo, that he had advanced about $600 (S60i> 25cts) to him, yet unaccounted lor, replies that he (Pogliani) furnished some days since, u list containing the names of persons employed in the theatre, with the amount paid them and their re ceipts for the same. By this statement, it was shown that Pogliani had paid the choruses, or chestra, etc., #fil0 49 cts?leaving a balance due him of $1 24 cts. Tins statement was shown to Win. Boucher, tirstte?ur, F. Meyer, first basso, and A. B. Hotie, attorney for the Company, who signed a paper certifying to its correctness. I Pogliani has shown this paper and the list of j names to Palmo, in presence of Boucher and Sig. ; Attmelli, the treasurer, and Palmo acknowledged ' that the account was correct, and was so well sa- | tislied, that he gave Pogliani the balance due him, ($1 24 cts) and took his receipt therefor. .vloiis. Pogliani further states that he is willing to j furnish a list ol the persons employed by the Ger- j man Opera Company, and the amount of money paid | to them, and thus exonerate himself from all the charges prefcrrt d against him by Signor Palmo. So mucti for the first week's difficulties?now for the second:? The proceeds of the second week's perform ance, were . $400 00 This money wis received by Signor Palmo. Mons. Pogliani received none of this money, but it was retained by Palmo, who as yet has luruished no statements concerning i's expenditure. Thus much for tin- quarrels of the (Jerman Open. We still think they might rest ea?y now. They all got something but the poor printers, who were shaved completely. Tlit-at rlcala. Park ? A discriminating anJ lather select audience assembled last night at tbe Park, to witness the last re presentation oftbe "Bohemian Girl.'* The opera was fas successful as inual, and many of tbe songs were loudly applauded. To-morrow evening the grand romantic opera of " Amilie, or the Love Test," will be performed i for the first time by the Soguin troupr. This opera was highly successful on its representation some years sine* at tho National, and we doubt not will be received with favor at this time. The evening's entertainment con cludes with the drama of the "Old Soldier," in which Mr. Bass made such a "hit" on a former occasion. Bowery Theatre.?Last evening the versatile John R. Scott, who plays anything well, from Macbeth down to Captain Copp, appeared as the rugged, rol licking Don Caesar, in the irama of "Don Co>sar de Ra' xan." It was a very rich performance, aril drew down tremendous peals of applause from the whole houso.? After this, the "Ruffian Boy," in which Mr. Clarke ap. posted as Duval, waj played, and the evening closed with the drama of the "Planter and his Dog," in which Messrs. Cony and Blacchard, and the wonderful dogs appeareJ. To-morrow evening, Bannister's fine national drama of "Putnam" is to be played, together with the druma of "Krnest Maltravers." Thk Kkans.?Mr. and Mrs. Charles Kean commence an exgagement to-morrow evening at the Chesnut street Theatre. Philadelphia. They have played here to the most brilliant and enthusiastic audiences which the Park ever held, and by their extraordinary abilities, and artis tical delineations el character, have created a love for tne legitimate drama whicli will undoubtedly be perma nent. They make their drbui in Philadelphia in Tallord's classic play of " Ion," in which Mrs. Keau captivated the hearts of her auditory in that city some years since Their re urn to this ci'y is anxiously looked for by all play-goers, w hose curiosity has been excited by the an nouncemuiit of Shakespeare's " Richard 111 which is to be produced en the Tth of January at Old Drury, in n style ol unprecedented magnificence and splendor.

We published, some duyw ago, under the bead of "brook lya Intelligence," an account of the terrible fanati cism a&d delusion ol a number of deluded Miller He*, who had attached themselves to a kind of "Miller redivivus"?a negro who, it seeme, has taken upon himself the cloak of deception, which Miller has, by his own public announcement, cast away. We there stated that the negro had b.-en placed in durance vile by the police of Wiilianis burgli, and that some papers, containing his preten ded revelations, had been found upon him. We have been favored by a gentleman to whom we are, therefore, much indebted, with a sight of thete papers, and have examined them, to see it, perchance, they might contain anything strange or new to lay Before our readers. In thu research we have been disappointed. The pjckag*? placed be lore us, consists of a quantity of loose slips of dirty paper, on which is.written, in a tolerably good hand, but in miserable orthography, a great number of va-1 rious texts, or passages of Scripture, thrown to gether without any apparent order or design. Pre ceding the whole are the following rhapsodies, which this second edition of Father Miller calls an Expo sition of tile Book of Revelations: William J Hodges Richard P Taylor Heury Hanford Elizabeth 'Parlor Thru Saet ths Holy gott.

Anclda. Hakkisbl-ho, Ph., Dec. $, 18.(5, The Resource* of Ptnntylvania?Her Dtb?Mtant to Pay it, 4*c , #c. Passing through the seat of Governmei of the Keystone State, I stopped for a couple of dye, with a view of making myself somewhat acquaiitd with the resources and wealth of this coramowealth, whose debt seems to regulate American seurities, in the European market I found the people h?e, not* withstanding the heavy debt ct fory millionMt'ut is resting upon them, ready to incur another inividual debt of nix or seven millisns of dollars, to mall what they call a great cetral railroad, from this nee to PitUburg, by the Juniata valley, which, it is said;an be made without either planes or hoavy grades, au>.u ken completed, it will make a nearer route from Ne?York to the Western waters, than the New York and E?, or the Baltimore and Ohio roada. I must confers that upon looking at the resouies of this State, I was forcibly impressed with its greihess, and 1 imagine that theie is a spirit of enterprise Bring ing up here that will change the w'hol>- face of aUVs in Pennsylvania. Some thirty-two anthracite iron estsiish inents have sprung up within the last two years. One of theso concerns, at this place, I was intormodmid to the State last year over $10,0110 in tolls upon u>ir stocus and the iron manufactured. This single sta blishment consumes upwards of 12,000 tons of antra cite coal per year, aud makos about one hundred ?ns of iron per week. I also learned from official data iat there had been about two million and a half toua okn thracite coal mined in this State, and taken to maiet during the past season, and that there would in all fo bability be about four million tons mined during ensuing season. Add to these sources of wealth te magnificent farms, with their stately mansions, tat spread out through every valley, and you may truly ?y that this is a wealthy State. But what pleased me most, was to hear of tho pros), rous condition of the finances of tho State. On the flit of December, the end of the fiscal year, the State Tro surer repotted available funds in the Treasury to th amount of >384,000. From that time to tho prosen, twenty-five days, he informs mu that he has receive, over and above expenses, upwards of >200 000, wiiio makes in the Treasury1 now near $600,000. The cit; and county of Philadelphia still owes of Lor taxes foi the year just closing, about $260.OCO, and other coui ties in the Stute still ow? auout $:)00/>00, which wil place in the Treasury ou the Hist of February next, i cum much more than sufficient to pay the iuterest on tht State debt then duo. I was much giatifledat the high tono aud bearing ol the Governor and Treasurer of the State, upon tho sub ject of the State debt. They not only declare that the interest shall be paid rogularly, but they are now de vising means to raise a sinking fund to caaoel the princi pal oi the debt. It may be askod how' shall this fund be raised? This question occurred to me but 1 fiund that the authorities hero understood this matter. There i< no doubt now but that t'o Governor will ttiko high grouud in favor of maintaining the faith of the Stato inviolate, in favor of the protective poll y of tho general government, and in favor of taxing anthracite roitl, with a view of raising a sinking fund to pay the princinal ot the State debt, the present tax bi 1 being amply sufficient to pay the interest. It may bo supposed by some, that a tax of tenor twenty cents a ton on coal, would be a small matter to raise a sinking fund from; but when we com* to reflect that there will be four millions of tons reined per \ ear, with a regular increase of consumption, it will easily be seen that a tlx of 20 cunts will raise f600,000 u year, and atax of 10 cants will raisa 1*400,000 a year. Tho highest amount named, *ith the increase of the re venues from the public woiks, and the accumulations of the three mill tax, would toon reduce the State debt to a more bagatnle. And since we have seen that the Le gislature has had tho boldness to levy the three mill tax, and the executive officers of government have had the Courage to collect it aud pay the interest, and the peo ple have said on the back of all this?" Well done, good and f iithful servants"?wo may expect, at the Cuming session, either to see a tax put upon coal, or some other practicable means adopted, of wiping out the State debt of Pennsylvania. 1 sincerely hope that this may be the cano. as all eyes in Europe seers to be turned upon Penmylvunia. When she stopped payment, ail America was declared, at the English Exchange, to be bankrupt; and when she resumed, the capitalists ot Europe immediately began to say that all the defaulting States would pay, and the credit of the non-paying States was raised by her re sumption. Oregon.?The following extract from a letter from Oregon, 13 t?ent to 11a tor publication : ? OnctiON, (Chabnlum,) Jane 17. 1316. I receiveil yours of the 14th April, 1844. A? for the Hudson Day (.ompany, the American* are now too streng ior them to care tho least what they n.ay do. Hereto fore they have been very arbitrary with American citi zen!, but at present they endeavor to buy all who have any influence in the country. They take precisely the same comso which the English took before with our forefathers in the United Sta a*, and this we must expect the government of the United State* sends her troops here, and tdkes possession of this country. Then are a great many tories here, and their fathers before them were tories in the States. As for sending; a peti tion to the government ot the United States, that is of no account at all;l^ey have had petition upon petition, and and what bav* they all amounted to? W hy, to the waste of the paper that set forth our grievances. No farther consideration has been given them. The Hudson Day company have all the important points in tho country?mills, cities and town sites?and have them occupied hy their servants; and of this the government of tne United States have been informed: yet the Hudson Bay Company, as far as the citizens of the Uni od Slates can learn, will obtain them, uuder the giunt of thn liill which it now helore Congress.? Therefore, if thero ate no restrictions or provisos in the bill in regard to the Hudson Bay Company, or to foreigners, this country is d?d forever. Bat 1 am ia hopes that the government will either make a proviso in regard to the Hudson Bay Company, and their citizens, or that the bill ior a donation to the inhabitant* of Oregon will not pass or become a la v. tVhat citizen of tho United States, who has lived here ior years, and lias seen the oppression of this company, would not rather see it sunk at once, or blotted out of the map of the world, rather than see all that is gooil and b autiful fall into the hands of those whom we know to be en mies to eur government I They are not satisiied with having rohbed this country ot millions of its richest fur*, but they mast now rob it of it* timber, and all the most im portant points. These they have in their possession, and as I have sui 1 .jelore, if Congress does not do some thing for this country, it is lost-lost?and that forever. This country cannot be surpassed in tho world for wheat or oats. Corn does not do well here, but other sort* of grain thrive more than middling. I would advise you j not to bring any tools, mil ss it be some light tools, not easily obtained here. Hell all off, and buy young cattle ?that is, young heifers from two to three years old, a* they stand it to travel better than a&y other sort. If you have anything of a company, say fftim fifty to a hundred families, start with a good lot of provisions, and only a fjw cooking utensils, as you will be obliged to throw them away on the road. Bacon, Hour, coffee, sugar and ten. are the main things un thn road. Start with a good supply, and be careful of it. You will make n good deal of meat when you get to the buffaloes, hut then a little flonr and bacon are good with some coffee or tea. I expect to s?e some of our iriends out this fall, but if not, I wiil bo obliged to content myself with the hope that some of jou will come the nest year. 1 have not given up the hope ol ugnin seeing ray own native country.
