JVEW YORK HERALD. N?w York. Monday. March '<J. 1M8> The Late Gale and the IMIots What ought to be ilone 1 The dreadlul effects of the late gale have been as certained?ilie amount of life and property destroy ed accurately known?the funeral obsequies of the unfortunate people who perished have been perform ed?and the excited feelings of the community and the survivors of that mournful day, have been some what calmed. Let us now temperately glance at the circumstances ot the shipwrecks, and see whether or not some ol the calamitous consequences could not have been obviated. in order to begin at the proper place, we must re fer to ine unholy crusade that has been conducted by the Doard of Underwriters, and a jiortioii ol the city press which they control, against the old New York pilots?a class of nn-n who, for enterprise, perseverance, and bravery in the discharge ol their duties, are unsurpassed in this or any other coun try" This crusade originated in politics, about ten years ago; and from that time to the present, has been carried on against these comparatively defen sive men,with the utmost malignity and intolerance. The enemies of the pilots have pursued these men, m public and in private. They have sought to poi son the Congress of the United States and the Le gislature of the State against their petitions; and have instilled into many masters of vessels, trading and belonging to this port, a considerable portion ot their own malignity. To such an extent has this been practiced, that several captains have risk ed the valuable cargoes and invaluable lives com mitted to their charge and discretion, rather than employ a New York pilot to conduct tlieia into port. But the captains are not so much to blame as the Board of Underwriters, Chamber or Commerce, A:c. from whom they received their orders and impulses to act iu this way. This Board, who are the guardians of the interests ol the people?the representatives of the ecrtpthold ers in the various insurance companies?their paid servants?with the view of crushing the New York pilots, give directions to the captain of every vessel in which they arc interest ed, not to employ a New York pilot to take his Bhip into port, but to wait until his vessel is boarded by merchant pilots, who are of the crea tion of the Board of Underwriters, or Jersey pilots, and who were organized with the intention ot break ing up the New York pilots. The consequences of this warfare must be obvious to every impartial man. The New York pilots are famed for their energy; they proceed farther to sea, in search of vessels, than probably any other similar set of men in the world?they own a number of boats, which, for fast sailing and sea worthiness, are unsurpassed; and the many years of probation that they must go through, to fit them for their profession, all are well calculated to inspire the confidence of shippers and merchants') in their capacity. The pilots who have been brought into existence with the intention ot breaking the New York pilots, own lewer ves sels, number infinitely less ot men and boys, and do not serve any regular system of apprenticeship; consequently they are in no respect equal to under take and monopolize the duties of the old pilots. The greater number of men and boats belonging to the old pilots, must enlarge the sphere of their business, and they must be expected to board more vessels than did other classeB of pilots do. Thus, a New York pilot may board a vessel a great distance at sea, and many hours before she would be reached by one of the other pilots. But the captain of the vessel has the orders of his owner and the Board of Underwriters, not to allow a New York pilot to take him in, but prefer rather to wait until another pilot gets to him. These regulations may be attend ed with no bad consequence for a while ; but in the end, those who sow the wind are destined to reap the whirlwind. Having said thus much, let us see it a part, at least, of the dreadful etfects of the late terrific gale might not have been prevented, if no such warfare against the New York pilots as we have referred to, had been going on. The ship John Minturn, with a valuable cargo, which, with the ship, was insuted at seventy or eighty thousand dollars, was close to land before tbe storm commenced, or at least before it had reached the height of its fury. The Blossom, belong ing to the New York pilots, had hailed her in the early part of the day, having abundance of time to pilot her into New York before the storm had in creased. The Captain ascertained or knew that ;he Blossom belonged to the New York pilots; and lollowing out the directions of the owners or consignees of the ship, not to employ one of them, he refused to allow one of the Blossom's men to come on board. Notwithstanding this repulse, the Blossom sailed in company with the Minturn for several hours, hoping that the Captain of the ship, seeing the appearance of a storm and knowing the dangerous coast he was near, would yet employ one of her pilots. The Blossom's men were kept in this state for several hours, the Minturn hovering about in the hope of meeting a merchant pilot, and the Blossom keeping close to her, willing to supply her with a pilot at any moment. Meantime, the storm increased to a hurricane; the captain got alarmed for the safety of his ship, and at length consented to take one of the Blossom's men onboard. Mr. Freeborn accordingly left the Blossom, and took charge cf the Minturn? but it was too late. The determination of the cap tain to obey the orders of his owners or others, had gone too far?the ship had got into so precancus a situation, and the tails were so defective, that it wasbeyoad the reach of mortal man to conduct her into port. The consequence was, that this valuable ship anil cargo, and forty-one lives, including the brave pilot, were lost. Yet no cne can for a moment blame the captain; he probably had his orders, and obeyed them, and lost his own life in performing lus duty. Here we see the fruits of this uncharitable war fare. The property of the scrip holders ot the in surance companies wilfully thrown away?forty, one valuable lives sacriticed?wives made widows ?husbands made widowers?children made or phans?the props of declining age snatched away, and a number of human beings ushered unexpect edly iuto the presence of their Creator. In God's name, how long is such a state of things to continue 1 How much longer are lite projierly and lives of our citizens to be at the mercy ot a elique of underwriters, who to judge of the barbaruy of their warfare against the pilots, show themselves to be guided by the worst principles t llow much longer will the holders of insurance scrip tolerate this moat unrighteous persecut'on ! And is it blasphemous to suppose that the Ruler of the Universe is not of fended at it, and has |>oured out the vials of his wrath to mark his disapproval 1 Aye, and to the credit, the everlasting credit of these New York pi lots! be it said, that were it not for their Christian like patience and indomitable energy, the conse quences might have been still more terrific. The ship Orleans was hailed in the same manner, and by the same pilot-boat Blossom. The captain of this ves sel refused the assistance of a New York pilot, and dismissed the Blossom. But the gale momently in creasing in violence, lie, alter a time, relented ot his decision, and placed six signal lights on his rig ging for a pilot. Notwithstandig their repulse, the brave men of the Blossom put one of their number on board, nnd the lucky time being met, she, un like the unfortunate Minturn, was safely conducted into a haven of safety. Had the Captain of the Orleans obstinately held out, and refused the as sistance of the Blossom, he and his vessel would have met the fate of the Minturn; and an increased numoer of human beings would have been launched into eternity, and sn increased amount of property destroyed. With such dreadful examples before our eves, ia it not Urne ti?4f tin* unholy warfare should cease 1 Ought not the subject to be taken up bv the public and by the press, and the mural torce of both those mighty influences brought to bear uj>on the sin of further carrying it on ! And, finally, will not the Congress of the United States, who now have under their consideration the petition of the pilots, mete out to these enterprising and indomi table class ol men, ihat justice which they cannot obtain here, aud for which the blood ol the sacri ficed, and the tears and wailings ol the widow and fatherle-s have now joined, with the supplications of the pilots themselves, in demanding I We shall Thk Texan Naval Officers.?Considerable op position has been manifested through a portion of the public press, to the proposed admission of the naval officers of Texas into our navy, with the same rank, they have held in their own. It is said to be unjust, that young men, many of whom left the American (lag to seek adventure and rank in j another land, should now be elevated over the heads 1 of their former commanders. The attack is parti cularly levelled at Commodore Moore, a gallant officer, whose enterprising conduct, and rapid at tainment of rank, seem to excite the jealousy of men, perhaps, of inferior worth. Now we contend that merit should be the only means of advancement, and that it is a false principle of promotion, calculated to lessen the efficiency of the navy, which regulates rank by age alone. But, pass ing by this proposition as one on which there may be some difference ol opinion, we assert that the Texan Commodore is entitled to equal rank in our navy, by the very spirit of the treaty ot annexalion ?by every principle ol national equity, aud every consideration of national honor. We profess to receive Texas into our Union on a footing of perfect equality with the sister States. How, then, it may be asked, can we consistently reluse to maintain the rights of her sons? How can we deprive them of that rank which they have won by their enterprise and valor, ana which has been tacitly, il not expressly, guarantied to fhem by that government whose political responsibilities we have voluntarily assumed ? We have received the Texan ships?a Texan sloop of war is now a United States sloop of war? why then, (/'fortiori, should not a Texan commodore be a United States commo dore? We can see no reason why the men who have risked their lives to maintain the liberties of a country, which, by the policy of annexation we have admitted to be of immense value to us, should be degraded from their well-earned rank, to appease an inconsiderate and unfounded jealousy. We have too firm a reliance on the justice and faimess ol our government, to suppose that they will, or Loan entertain so ungenerous a purpose, despite the clamors ol (he envious few; and we venture to say, that no brave man in the American 1 navy, will permit his feelings to be jaundiced against his Texan brethren. Emigration to California -We have been shown a private letter from D. G.W. l*avit,, Esq., of Napo leon, Arkansas, in which he states that he is now getting up a company to start from Fort Smith on the l.rst of April next, lor California. Nearly a thou sand of them, determined people, men, women and children, the old, the young, the rich and the poor, the farmer, mechanic, lawyer, doctor and preacher all will assist to make up the company. The outfit for each individual will consist of two horses, a good rifle, sixteen pounds of lead, four pounds of powder, caps, &c., and a tent and camp equipage for every five, together with a stock of .pro visions tor a journey of 1600 miles. They intend forming a settlement at the head of the Gulf, and also at ban Diego harbor. They will start on the tenth of April, and the journey will occupy about four months. San Diego harbor is a point next in imjairtance to I ban brancieco, und the two together will be like the New York and Pmladdphia, of the middle States ftlany years, we are confident, will not pa?,crc, by l>eaceful migration, the most important parts of this ! country, rich and beautiful in soil and climate, will be settled by the most energetic portion of our de termined people. Municipal Reform.?We observe that one ol the pnncqial objections ra;sed against Alderman Hart s bill for the amended cb'arter of our city, is that of property representation, as applied to the three lower wards. It is said that the duties of aldermen in these wards are tar more arduous than those of oilier wards composing the upper ,unions of the city. In the still and quiet hour of night, it is but seldom that the official aid of an alderman ie requisite: while in the business hours of the day the popuiat.on of the upper wards form the most active part of the moving jupulation down town. Beside this, there is an increased degree of vigilance necessary upon the part of our city officials in the neighboihood of he wharves and piers, our ferries and our steam boat landings, than is demanded in the less excit able and more orderly part.ol the population resident any where above Canal street. This is a simple statement in relation to that part of Alderman Hart's b,U so generally complained Something in hie W,nd.-Two or three gentle en connected with the government in Canada ave recently visited Washington, and had several conferences, ?

Both are now in as vigorous, healthy and flourishing a condition in this country as the dearth of great musical and dra matic talent will admit. The American people readily appreciate and keenly relish the beauties and excellencies of artists, and a generous support has ever been extended to the claims of genius and talent. The most eminent among the bright names of modern Europe have gladly visited us, and their success has in most cases far exceeded their most brilliant anticipations. We have, as a people, all the elements of greatness?a natural love for whatever is beautiful and true in nature and art; and the time must come when we may justly lay claim to a re fined national taste, exhibiting iiself in our national music and our national drama. The lion pianist of the age?Leopold de Meyer? is still absent from the city, and no great musical furore may be expected previous to his leturn. This accomplished atiitle has given two grand concerts in Philadelphia, which we learn were crowded with the most brilliant and enthusiastic audiences. He goes to Washington, to gather fresh laurels, and will probably return to this scene of his triumps in a few weeks. The very excellent sleighing during the past week nnteriaiiy allected all places of amusement in this city. At the Park theatre, Miss Charlotte Barnes lias been playing a round of comedy, assisted by Mr. Vandcnhofl. Mr. Sands, and his beautiful and talented children, also concluded their engagement at the Park, on Saturday evening, with another rare and brilliant display of gymnastic teals. They proved very attractive. At the Bowery theatre, several new dramas have lately been produced, in a style of unprecedented splendor and magnificence. This establishment is conducted with great ubility, and is now 111 the full tide of successful operation. The celebrated and popular druma of "Putnam" is performed this eve ning, by the talented company. Howe's circus, at Palmo's, is also one of the most delightful places of amusement in the city, and the graceful and elegant equestrian feats per formed by the troupe, attract fashionable and crowd ed houses. The Segutn troupe are engaged to appear at the Park theatre shortly, and will bring out the new and famous comic optra, by Donizetti, entitled " Don Paequale," which has been performed with such distinguished success in London and Paris. The failure of the Seguins, during their last visit, was owing to the fact of their performing in.oH, and in one instance at least, entirely worthless composi tions. But the production of " Don Paequale" will probably ensure musical and fashionable audiences. We sequire thestimulus of novelty to draw crowd ed houses, and it must be of a meritorious char acter. Upon the whole, theatrical and musical affairs seem to be in a very flourishing condition through out the country. Foard op Assistant Aldermen.?The regular semi-monthly meeting of this Board will tak? place this evening, provided a quorum can be mustered to gether ; which, however, is somewhat doubtful, in asmuch as several members of the Board are busy legislating at Albany, while others have gone thither to lobby the new city charter through. Mr. Oliver, the worthy member of the Fifteenth ward, is like wise absent from the city, having gone on a South ern tour. Court ok General Sessions.?The March term of this court commences this morning. Davis, alias Collard, the last of the Poughkcepsic barge robbers; and Bartlelt, Moore, and others, indicted for obtain, ing a large amount of property by false pretences, are, it is believed, the most imj>ortaut<:ases that will be brought to trinl during the ensuing term. Meeting of the lite Utopian Society. This Society held a meeting on Saturday evening last, in the lower lecture room of the Medical Col lege in Broadway. It is composed of a number of the students in the medical department of the New York University, and has now been in existence about a year. The object of tliie society, which meets weekly, is to bring students into closer con. tiguity with one another, than they cau enjoy by merely attending the lectures in the same building; and at these weekly re-unions various medical ques tions are discussed among themselves, essays on stated subjects delivered, reports of cases read, and in fact, the various medical topics of the day are in' vestigated. Saturday last being the concluding day of the tea. sion, and a number of the members being about to leave town for the summer, the meetiog of the .lisculapians was one of peculiar interest. They as sembled at 7i P. M., and notwithstanding the se verity of the weather, a very numerous attendance was present; a number ol invited guests were in the room, and the eminent Professor of Surgery, Dr. Mott, was among them. The exercises of the even ing consisted ot an address from Mr. Charles Todd Quintard, the President of the Society. Mr. Qcintabd began by tome observation* on the many pleasant hours passed together by the members of the Society during the past sessioo, and adverted with much feeling to the change from the quiet student's life to the hustling, anxious one of the medical practioner, which many of' their members were about to experience ? he doubted no' hut that sometime*, while perplexed and wearied with their responsible duties, they would look back with feelings of fond regret to the col lege, tboir alma mater, and tho little band of fellow students with whom they had theorized on the diffi culties that they were then practically oncountoring. lie then enlarged upon tho requisite characteristics of an upright medical practitioner, and was sure that by their lives alone they would be able to ward oft those darts of envy, batrea. malico, and all tho uncbaii'able nest with wliich the physician is sometimes so unjustly assailed. He inculcated the cultivation of the mo ral qualities of humanity, candor, and that gentleness of manner which make* the physician beloved and respect ed. He then adveited to the great advances which are daily making in the medical science*, Lveu within the last half century, what had,not been accomplished! And for this ho would point to men who had been actor* in this drama, during that period, to sustain his words. Their pre-eminent professor of surgery, Dr Mott, who was then present, was In himself a glorious proof of thia fact;*'lor who,'' said be, "can trace hi* steps through hi* professional career and not feel that it bus been lraught with lasting good to his fellow men 1 lie bold him battling with disease in its moat terrilic forms ? standing alone?no experience to be gainod Irom the past?and with the eyes of the world upon him. Well ?nay an Astley Cooper envyjour own immortal Mott? " For glory came and sat him on her throne Thero let him sit, and scora the bas-ness of ambition's devotees? " For all posterity shall applaud hi* deeds." Mr. llrixTARP spoke at some length,and we regret our room d>es not allow us to give a luiler synopsis of bis eloquent address. He finally concluded by hoping that the live# ot his fellow students, who were now about to outer into active life, should ke such thst the woiM might judge thorn in the language ot Shuksj tare, and say that, "The elements were so mixed in them, That nature might stand up before all the world And say?'This was a man."' Alter much applause, the meeting then adjourned ? The .V.sculapians will hold their regular" meetings throughout the spring and summer month*. DlovcmrnU at Trvtlalerf.

Mabch 1-?Grand l.arcer y ?A notorious fellow colled Coroeliui Noooan, who keep# a rum bolo for thiovas and (prostitutes, et No. 33 Orange itreet, on the Fire Pointi, waa arrested by policeman Cornell, of the flrat ward, on Saturday night, charged with robbing a young man by the name ot Adam Hart. It appears from the facta in thii caie, that an elderly man br the name of Alexander Hart, and hit two torn, called Adam and John, residing at Coldray, Ibu .arrived in this city on Friday night, this being the first time his bovs had been so far from home, thoy being two strapping Dig fellows, stand ing six feet at leait, and over twenty years of age. and the " greenest" Yankees we ever saw in these diggins. The old num. wisbiog to show bis little b. ys the big sights around town, strolled on the Five Points, and was decoyed into a " crib," to take a drink, by an old black "pigeon" called! Bill Smith; who, after getting them Eretty well rummy, escorted them into the above den, apt by Noonan, and there they took some ten or more drinks, which knocked them completely over, and Adam wae put to bed in a very " Ooughish" condition. On Saturday morning, Adam found, much to his astonish ment, that hit money was missing, amounting to near $400, and his,watch, (he being the cashier of the party ) On communicating these facu to the officers, Cornell, McAtanus, and Watson, they at once arrested Noonan and bis accomplices, consisting of Sarah Williams, Mary Ann Wells, bill Smith, the nigger, and Johanna Tracy. Several articles, such as shawls, and pieces or muslin, were found in Noonan'a house; aleo two German silver forks, marked Western Hotel, supposed to have been stolen. These parties are all locked up by Justice Drinker for examination. Burglary ?James Morrison and Robart Gamble were caught last night in tha house of Emma Harrison, No. 43 Grand street, tbey having broken through the base ment window; and ue.o in the act of robbing the premises, when George Gale, beard the nsise, and caught the chaps in the act. They bolted into tha street, and wore arrested,by a policeman of the 8th ward, and taken to tho station house. Justice Osborne committed tbein for trial. Viihaneit Servant ?Catharine Johnson was arrested yesterday, for stealing a handsome cloth coat, valued at (60, beiongiogto Mrs. Stewait, No. 6 Watt street. This woman was employed to do some work in the bouso, and, on tearing the premises, stole the above property and pawned it at King's pawn shop, Grand street, for $1 60, where it waa recovered. Committed by Justice Osborne. JluJul Seduction ?Catharine Squires, a lady of very fascinating appearance, was arrested yesterday on a charge of seducing a gentleman by the name of Wm. H. Smith, residing at No 100 Wooster street. The com plaint was miule by Mrs. Smith, tho legitimate wife of Mr. Smith. This fair seducer was committed to a cell for repentance, by'Justice Osborne. Cut with a Knife.?Stephen Farkenson (black) was ar rested last night for cutting another darkie. by the name of John Brown, of No. 61 Cross street, giving a severe gash across the forehead. Committed tor trial by Jus tice Drinker. Chnrgt of Jlrton-?David Robert*, James Hoyt, Tho mas Martsgh, three notorious Five Pointers, were ar rested last night, by policemen McManut and Watson, charged by Batcher Jim with setting fire to his "crib," No 127 Anthony street. The magistrate, not deeming the evideuce sufficient, discharged these beauties, to try their luck again. M vigilant Policeman.?Mr. Robart A. Robertson,who keeps a wool store at No. 231 Pearl street, bad stolen from his store on last Tuesday night, a new rifle.ralued at (16. On Saturday afternoon, one of the 6th ward policemen, by the name of Patrick McCollum, called up oa Mr. Robertson and enquired if he had lost a rifle. Up on being answered in the affirmative, McCollum said he had the article, and wa- ted to know if Mr. R would pay ! bim 21 shillings, the amount of which lie gave to get it out of pawn. Mr. R. would not consent to any sucn ar rangement, |but enquired where the thief was. To this McColiurn said he did'nt know. However Mr. R. left the store with the policeman, and proceeded to the 6th Dis- | trict Station.at the Tombs.and was shown the rifle,which Mr. U. identified to be the one stolen. The matter was then taken before Justice Merriti, who,'with hie us ual promptness, commenced a strict investigation.? McCollum was asked by the magisatrates, who gave him the information 1 He answered, after teveral contradictory 'stories, that a white man told him in the stieet,,that it was pawned at Mr. Simp son's, corner of Broome street and the Bowery; and that he, McCollum; paid twenty-one shillings to take it out. This story was proved to be false by Mr. Henry Regan, the clerk tf Mr. Simpson, who stated in his affidavit, that tho policeman, McCollum. camo to the shop of Mr. Simpson and demanded the rifle, und offered to pay th9 twelve ehillings which it was in lor. Mr. llegan then asked him whero the black man was who put it in pawn. McCollum sai l ho was outside. Upon calling in this black thief, hi gave his name as John Thompson, and said he had lost the ticket. The clerk then asked him where hi* boss waa, whom he said he pawned tho rifle for on last Wednesday. The nigger then pointed to the policeman, who acknowledged the appelution by a knowing nod of the head. The clerk thought all was right, received the twelve shillings, and gave up the rifle, which it appears the policeman took to toe station house, nud allowed the thiet to escape You must understand that the nigger stole the rifle on Tuesday night, pawned it on Wednesday, and on Thurs day he went with McCollum to get it out; and it was lying from Thursday until Saturday afternoon in the station house, when the nigger had evidently informed him where it had been stolen from. Tail principle of recovering property is carried on to an alarming extent around the Tombs, but has hitherto been managed with more skill to prevent detection. Stealing a Decanter of Rum.?John Luckio, William Johnson, und George Williams, were arrested about five o'cIol k on Sunday morning, for stealing a decanter of rum belonging to Jim Green, who keeps a diving bell, at 166 Anthony street. Justice Drinker, upon hearing tbo case, took a complaint against Green, lor keeping a disorderly house, and locked him up in default of (300 hall; and committed Williams for a petit larceny?so justice was equally divided. Stabbing with a knije.?Mary Louisa Davis, a black wench, was brought in and committed, for stabbing another wench, called Vailet Nodine. Petit Larceny.?Henry Halpia was caught last night, by a policeman of the third ward, for stealing a basket worth seventy-five cents, belonging to Laden & Hosg land, No. 81 Vesey st Locked up tor trial.

Baltimore has been very gay this winter, but I could not go out. My curly, black-baired little Bibiche, having taken my finger for a piece of cheese, indulged her ap petising propensities to such an extent, that I could not pull on MMMtr sixes, and i bate sctsns? therefore, I have been unable to do my winter's duty; and you New Vorkers remained unwritten to ; at least, about Balti more parties. 1 entered the room, leaning npot the arm of Judge M a, a very handsome, and a very distinguished man. As we approached Miss O , to make our obei sance, I was struck with the manner in which she re ceived ue?the smile that greeted us?the " glad to see you" was not the smile nor the welcome of atf ectetion ? she was really glad to see us. Miss C is emphati cally a Baltimore beauty?(not such a beauty as the sickly fancy of the writer in the IKsstem Continent has portrayed.) As she stood within a few feet of the door, with a smile playing upon her calm face, os Aurora's first blush upon tbe morn, her boauty seemed greater than ever. " A lovely giil she was, of looks ssrene, And motions which over things indifferent, shed The grace and gentleness from whence they came." But we will pats over the time, till the bewitching hour of party twilight?the hour alter supper. At I stood in the door-way, talking to that queen of Baltimore ball givers, Mrs. S U n, every thing and every body could be teen. The ball room was being tilled again, and Murray was discoursing sweet music, to which the waltzsrs were bcatiog time, in circles of three feet diameter. Had Byron heard this music, and seen the beauty and grace that the arm of man embraced and supported in the whirl of thia charming dance, his " waltz" would have been milder. The charming bride of T. M? n?a moved light as air, with that gieat embodiment of nonsense, but graceful, Mr. O , while Mra. C , who ii a perfect fairy, a little love, was doing tbe like with W. B , a sort of bear, as described by Miss Bremer, in tbe " Neighbors " But stop ; I may tell loo much truth. It is strange that tue fairer portion of our sex generally consort with such men as O. and 0. 1 could tell ol twenty such cases, but i won't. Tbe only relief given to that almost uni versal ill consortism among the waltzera, was the ap pearance ol two couples upon the floor, who seemed as If Heaven itself had to arranged it, lor its own gratifica tion?the young daughters of our groat Senator, H. J. Mis* L. J n was with Mr. T s " Fair encounter Of most rare affectiona." But whv in thia soene of gaiety should they seem so pensive ' ?? Sir John. How can'st thou cross this marriage 7 Itoracnio.

Knowing your earnest desire to lay before the thousands ot your readers, the earliest information relating to the business or politics of any portion of our common country, I send you an account of a business enterprise, which bids fair to become a matter of vast importance to this portion of old Connecticut, and to add to the amount of luxury which your Empire City is capable of commanding from all quarters. I al lude to the movement of " The Merchants' Ice Compa ny," of New York, in procuring thair supply of ice from tho Niantio Lake, at East Lyme. This beautiful little lake, covering an area of one and a half mlie, or more, in" circumference, is situats about six miles west of New London, and is as remarkable for its astonishing depth, (being in most parts one hundred feet or mora.) as for the purity of its water, and the beauty of the ice it affords. Large and extensive buildings have been erected upon the ebore of Niantio Bay, capable of con taining vast quantities of ice, which era now filled from the lake, e part of which, I understand, is intended for the New York market, and the balance for ehipping to such foreign parte as will afford a market for it. The ice is cut out with ice ploughs, and other tools, made expressly for the business, a ,d transported over a rail I road, from tho lake to these huge depositories, with astonishing rapidity. The industrious proprietors era actively prosecuting the work of completing a dock, which will afford depth of water sufficient ior vessels of almost any draft, and which, when loaded, can, within two hours, be " out at sea," bearing the congealed wa ters of the Niantic Lake, to those whose locality will not permit them to boast the manufacture of so delioious en article of commerce. Altogether, we consider this undertaking as an epoch in the history of Connecticut; and, from the fine qualities of the ice, and the great fa cilities offered of affording it cheap for traneportation, there seems to be no doubt that Niantic Lake will soon become an extensive depot, from which ice will be sent to all parts of the world. I sincerely hope the expecta tions of the Company may be fully realized. Sudden Death?Supposed Seduction?Grave Robbed.?The sudden death of Mum Sarah W. Ro binson, at Geneseo, Livingston county, after two or three days illness, and without the knowledge of her danger ous condition, has given rise to rumors of a most painful character. So far as the rumors fix upon any person in that county, the cha'ge of seduction, they are not cre dited at that place. An inquest was ordered at the Court House on Friday last; at the hour ot essembling, nows came that the grave was empty. The body had evident ly been spirited away the night previous, after the Co roner had ordered an inquest. This added to the excite, ment, and rumors and conjectures flew about as to the cause, and who could have been concerned in the trans action. The Coroner, after consulting several legal gontlemen, came to the conclusion to proceed with the investigation; Moses Hunt was, accordingly, called and sworn, and testified as follows :?a< I attended the fune. ral: there was a large concourse. I furnished the ccffio and acted as undertaker; 1 attended personally to the bo rial at the grave on Temple Hill; did not e.-e the gravi filled entirely up.

There has beon a very great change in the public min in relation to tho complexion of political affairs, with the past week. This change has been caused partly the advices from Washington, and the tone of the rpeec es in the Senate upon the Oregon question. The aocoui from England, by the last steamer, are not considered all of a pacific character by the leadiag members of t administration party in the Senate Those who proiess speak the sentiments of the President, are of opinion tl the British premier is not so peaceably inclined us his marks in Farliament induce many to think. Many leading capitalists and financiers, in tblemarlu are disposed to ttke an unfavorable view of the forei news, audragul.te their operations accordingly. T appearance of the stock market shows this; and the p babili'y is, that prioes for stocks will experience a ft ther depression. The commercial advices from Engla: received by the Cambria, are of themselves of the m favorable and valuable character, sufficiently eo have given a great impetus to our foreign and domes trade,ond have increased the prosperity oftblscounj immensely ; but the peculiar position of our fore gn L fairs? the Joubt and uncertainty that surround the| and tha indefinite allusions of the prime minister of E land, in relation to the Oregon question, have neutrai ed the commerciil advices, and prevented our roaeir', such imme iate benefits from tho additional facilities s foreign trade would have under other circumstan^ Had our political matters, both foreign and domesj been in a mora favorable condition, the modification! | the commercial system of Great Britain would hava bf at this time of vast importance and value to every in J tercst of the country. We do not mean to say that a* under existing circumstances, they ate not of greetj las, although many d.flar very much as to tha affile tha repeal or modification of the corn laws of Great J tain upon the price, ho., of our agricultural products; we believe that the position of our public affairs, ^ for a long time, act as a serious check upon the opera* of the changes in the commercial system of Oreat Brit* and may compel a postponement of the contempts' changes in the commercial system of the t States.
