The proofs of advancing civilization, with the march of empire, are numerous.

Thus, though "we havs left our country W?ur?o?s ??>. good." we (like the author of the line, yet wc trust uiixeo ?- -rarything else,) are indepen Jent of it for theatricals, and can laugh at the pretentions of your sometime distinguished Park, it* curtain tells, that Shakcpsare ?? was lor all time.

The H'rather?The Cotton and other Markrti?Fi nance and Fwhion?The Sheet Iron Band, and Matrimony. There was so little stirring, that I did not think it worth while to write you yesterday, and have but little news to give you now. The weather to day is clear, but extremely cold, the mercury being at 86 degrees. The cotton market is not quite to dull as it was, and it is said that the price has declined, but 1 cannot hear of any sales that have been made at a lower rate than I last advised you of.

About fire hundred of them charterei the requisite number of sleighs, and prooeaded to thi hotel of Mr. Woodworth, about six miles below thi' city, in the town of Bchodack. Your corresponded was invited to go, and he did go. J sat down, at 10 P. M to such a supper at mortals do not often taste. Borne fellow present intimated (most unpatdonably) that the leporterto the Sew York Herald was in the room. A sentiment which was a personal allusion to me, was pro posed, and drunk with cheers.

"The Seta York Herald, end the proprietor of the .Yew York Herald-the lnrmer the circulating mirror, which is the reflex of the liberal and independent policy j of the latter." This was drunk with six cheers, and after some happy and pertinent remarks upon the prin ciples and tendency of Free Masonry, the. members re turned to the city, delighted with the ride. The weather is very warm. The snow ia melting very | fast, and the walks are covered with water. Unless it changes soon, the ice in the river will give way.

Local prejudices, as in the anti rent case, will operate in their favor. Look out for denouements, political and social, of a thrilling cha racter about these days.

On Wednesday the 17th ult., a negro man. the property ot Mra Canty, of Carrollton, La , fell overboard irem the steamer Rainbow,and drowned, about 10 miles above Carrollton, on ber trip to Bayou Sara. Mr. Henry Witt fell dead in the street near hia dwelling in Lynn, on Saturday last. He was 07 years of age. On the 20th ult. a little girl, daughter of Mrs. Pursell, of Lagrange, Oeorgia, was so severely burnt by accidentally getting ber clothes on lire, that she died in a few hours, after much intense suffering. This, we understand, is the fourth member of the family whose death has been occasioned by lire.

The objection taken to the tax title deed was, that, under the revenue lawi of 1838-"Jfl e lorm had heen preacribed for a deed, which could oul) he executed by the Sheriff who eold the land ; and that there wa* no pvoviaion in this revenue law, authorizing the aucceaaor of the Sheriff to execute the deed. This objection wae^suatained by hia Hon Judge Pope, and the deed ruled eut. There are without doubt a great many tax title-deed* in precisely the tame sitna ion m the one in question; and if the view taken by the Circuit Court of the United State* for the Ui*trict of lllinoie be auetuined by the Supreme Court of the Voited State*, a great many tax title* throughout the State aU)t in evitably prove valueless. lit en Telrrravk.

[From the Montreal Herald, Dec. 24.] We regret to have to record fresh cases of loss of life and projierty on our stormy river. From letters received Irom (Quebec we learn that a pilot had arrived there on the 21st of December, who had seen three vessels on shore, which he confidently asserted were the Montreal, the Sir Kichard Jackson, and the Syria. The following is an extract from a letter dated St. Luce, 19th December " I have learned to-day from Mr. Chas. Campbell, that there are three square rigged vessels and a schooner, wrecked between Metarule and St Anne des Monti The crews of one of the ships and of tho schooner had perished. Subjoined is an extract from a letter received by a merchant in this city " \ ou will be all sorry to hear the melancholy Dews that has reached us this morning from below, vix : that four vessels are lust, and (he craws and passengers of

two of them supposed to have perished. One of them is the Montree), Captain Douglas. The body of a female and child have been fourd on tne beach, with many others." The lot ers from Quebec, dated the 22d inst, state :? The most melancholy accounts that we have had of the wrecks which have occurred in tho river this fall, were received here yesterday There is no doubt, from the particulars given in the following extract of a lettei to A. Campbell, that one of the vessels mentioned is the barque Montreal, Capt Douglas, which loaded at Mom treat, and salted hence on the morning of the -jsth ult. and, sad to relate, all her crew, including the Captain'i wife and child, who were on board, have perished. MitAifE, Dec. 16, 1846. " A man from Nt. Anne, (district of Oaspe,) named Tbos. Allison, who h is just arrived here, reports two wrecks at <'a|>e I hat; the crew of one was saved, but and to tela o, ol the other vossel, not one is left to tell the tale. Seveial of thair bodies have been washed ashore among th-m are a woman and child. On the vesse's burgee, which is torn, are the three first letters of her name?Mow. " He lurther reports a Schooner being totally wreck ? 1 about six miles below the barque?none of her ere w seen at all, and supposed to have no cargo, as none was seeu. " This man further states that he had seen, close to the barque, a full female figure-head?painted white." The othor vessel mentioned in the same letter, proves to be the ship Win. Bayard, Capt Miller, a letter having been received here from the Capt addressed to Uilmour St Co., which states that she will be a total wieck. Her cargo had all been saved and been got up as far as Mitis, from which place Capt. M writes, aud where ho is laid up with a sprained ancle. The Bayard is ashore 16 miles below Little hjatane The Hour in her was still safe, although the larboard broadside was out?it would be landed as soon as the ice was sufficiently strong to bear it. There is little chance of saving the tigging or any or her materials, unless it bo in the spring?her masts, which were cut away, are lying alongside of her, under the ice The mate and one man have remained by the wreck to prevent her being plundered. Capt M. states that his men have been dreadfully frost-bitten, and one, he fears, will lose his life Fears are entertained here for tho safety of the other vessels which sailed at the latter end of Novemlier The weather in Montreal f:rthe last few days has been excessively cold ; yesteiday the thermometer was ?Jl? below v.ero.

Coupled with these bellicose demonstrations, we find advertisements of drill books for sale, swords, pistols, and other army paraphernalia. At Quebec we ere else "sharpening our tusks,'kbut to a less extent. Most of the militia battalions of the city heve been completed, and parades, or musters of one or two of them ordered. It is as well to be prepared, if preparation does not lead us into ridiculous display. Our Adjutant General of Militia bae properly and judiciously taken in hand the effective organization of what may be termed our domestic force, and we have reason to know, from in structions emanating fiem his office, that it will not he his fault if. in case of a brush with our neighbors, there is not an available army, composed from The people of the country, disposable at any and every point at a very short notice. This is as it should he , and now It this dull season of the year, when employment is slaok, it might not be amiss ff the several corps in our city, and elsewhere, were to volunteer to assemble for drill - Such meetings could but be productive of good to ell concerned. No needless display of uniform is required The muster should be to acquire the knowledge of mili tary movements ; the use of the musket, he., might be dispensed with until orders from head quarters were re ceive.l announcing the declaration of war, and ordering ?11 not exempt from service to take up arms in tha ser vice of the Queen.

The first thing you have>0 consider is the nature of the crime before you, and v-s^ j, tj,e prisoner charged with ' We have in our tj,e crjme of murder, which is punishable with death , ,nj tj,e crime of manslaughter, which is divided into four u.,reei( ?,<! is punished by imprisonment for various term*. ?, con stitute the crime of murder, there must be the killing ?f n human being by some other person, with a preme ditated design.

There is manslaughter in two other oegreea that may bear on this case ; and if you are not satisfied that the prisoner is eilher guilty ot murder or ot manslaughter in the first degree, you may then nquire whether he is not guilty of manslaughter in he second, third, or fourth degree , aud if you think the crime is not comprehended in either ol ihate classes, then it is lor you to enquire whether the crime here charged does not come within the statute ot 183A If you find it does, then it is only a misde meanor : hut It it for you to say of which of those crimes he is guilty; Btid when you come to fit the crime in this range between murder and these throe degrees of man .liughter and misdemeanor, I come next to call your attention to the fhcta by which the charge is tna.ie out, to establish which it Is necessary for the prosecutor to uiafao ~u? to your satisfaction three things. The first is, ','iatslie is dead; the second, that she died by violent means ; and the thiid and last, was it the prisoner that caused her death I That she is dead, and died by violent oeaii*. there can be no doubt; and the only question for t on to decide, is it the pnsoner that caused her death ' His Hot,or conclude.I by leaving it to the Jury, under II the cltcttmstances; audit tbeio was any reasonable :ouht on their minds, to give the prisoner the benefit ol it.
