y ? - - ? NEW YORK HERALD.! New York, Monday, August 1U, 1846. i .\rw? from l?uro|>e. It is now time for the Great Western to mnke her appearance. She is in her 16th day. Our Kelalloita with Mexico? shall we Pro erute the War with Vlf(ur I We give, in anoiher column, in the report of the proceedings in Congress on Saturday, the i special message oi the President, relative to the ettlement of our dilficulties with Mexico. We have taken repeated occasion to remark upon the apparent folly of meditating any move to bring about peace with Mexico, without a full submission of that power, anil ample ackn owledgments of all our just rights. We can discover no sort of use in mincinc matters. While impelled to commence, it is ?ur duty to go forward without jaltering, until all our demands are properly scoured. That there is an immense embodiment of illwill to our country in the hearts of the Mexicao public, we are well assured ; we have, indeed, the proof of .ts existence before our eyes ; proof that it exists in no small dearee even in thos?' who are the declared opponents of Paredes, and his recently developed plan of establishing a mc?narchy on the ruins of the Mexican republic, if Mexico has ever been one We have, moreover, no faith in the proposals which the Piesident has in view ; we be?lieve our country would be humbling itself to no purpose, tocaich at any offer thrown out by Mexico. From all we are able to learn, the sum of two millions of dollars for the purchase of some of the western states of Mexico, or a boundary near the Rio Grande, would be considered an impertinent offer on the part of our government, and utterly inadequate to satisfy the enlarged expectations o( Mexico, and her magniloquent rulers. It is proper we should hold up our voice and protest against this half and half course. Suspending operations at the very monient our forces are j pic|?ixi ru *\j iimac a iwi waiu muv cuiciii, w in na*o a pernicious influence on the Mexican public: they will say, " these North Americans are afraid to advance; they propose terms of peace." The ; result will Vie difficulty in the arrangement or terms, and a rise in all the expectations and demands of their riders. We say again, therefore, St is our duty to go on. and compel Mexico to make the first advances towards a pacification. We perceive no dignity or national propriety in ' any condescension on our part. It is evident to our minds, also, that It even the often promuled revolution took place, and Santa Anna and Almonte were re-established in power, there would be little disposition in these persons to settle the question of national difference, except 011 compulsion. We have before us an extract of a letter from General Almonte,which plainly exhibits a feeling of hostility to our country?a feeling so strong, indeed, that it would alm?st seem that a war to the knile would be deemr.A ! cu I'li iciuDif IU ci i.Av;c|n uu icnus wuiuii we can never by possibility submit to assent to. We sny again, therefore, that advances on our ; part to paci/icate the war differences are impoli- J tic, unwise, and unnatural?there is no chance of J their being viewed in the right light by Mexico, j and unless our offers are very liberal and conci- [ liatory, we will be mortified by a repulse. We deem it consistent with the patriotic I course we have all along pursued on this question, to counsel our rulers at Washington; deprecating as we do, and must continue to do, as unwise, any steps towards a conciliation, until Mexico sues for peace There is no evidence perceptible that Mexico ha* made any advance on her part; and if it be true that cmr government is acting on the belief of a citizen of ours in the capital of the Montezumas, we presume he must have been directed to make the enquiry. It will not be very gratifying to the military feeling, so extensively developed by and since the glorious contests on the K o Grande, in the early part of May, if these successes are followed only by a proposal for a cessation of hostilities?hostilities we did not commence. It cannot, and it will not come to good. Thk Nkw York Post Office Again ?The miserably inefficient manner in which the business of the New York Post-office is conducted, has, we are glad to perceive, been the subject of debate in the House of Representatives at Washington. The debate sprung from an amendment introduced by Mr. Hopkins increasing the salaries of deputy postmasters, when Mr. Seaman, of this city remarked :? That if the amendment gave the postmaster at New York an additional compensation, he hoped it would not pass It had been hii intention to move a resolution requiring an investigation into the condition ot the post office in that city The deputy postmaster received $(>000 per annum, but he was a member oi the State Convention, and hid been absent at Albany two months, receiving Tour dollars a day He may be there two months longer, at the same rate of pay. Abuses had come under , his (Mr Seaman's) own observation. He had repeatedly ' mailed letters, which did not re^h New York until five days after On the 9 th of last month this was the case , u letter, enclosing draft, was five days in reaching its place of destination. He had prepared a resolution, which he would read. It was to the effect that the Postmaster General be requested to inform the House, whether officially or otherwise, R. II Morria haa been for some time past performing other public duties than those sf Postmaster, for which he has bean receiving three or four dollars a day, compelling him to be absent several months; and whether such absence has been sanctioned or authorized by the President or the Postmaster-General, and whether he is receiving during this time his salary The Postmaster was defended by a Mr. Rathbun, l'ram somewhere out west in this State; who, however, admitted that he was performing the duties of a delegate to the State Convention, for which he received litur dollars a day, while the business of the uost-oifice was allowed to ko on as best it could without his aid. We arc glad to sec that Mr. Seaman bail the manliness to take up this subject. We can assure him that he has the thanks of nine-tenths of the mercantile community in this city, nnd of the press for his trouble, and hope he will introduce his resolution at the earliest possible moment, and have some action u.ken on it. It is dreadful to reflect that the Postmaster is permitted to hold a lucrative office, from which he receives five thousand dollars a year, and be not compelled to attend to it, but have the ht>erty of throwing the duties on other persons, and accept another office worth four dollars per day, while the alfairs ef the post-office are mismanaged to such a degree as to seriously affect the interests of many of our citizens. We cannot see how any man can justify Mr. Morris. He has proved himself to be the most inefficient post master we have ever had, by being absent lrom his post. But if the post office is properly managed while Mr. Morris is in Albany, it shows the folly of having a postmaster at all, and the 85000 yearly salary ought therefore to be saved. We think it would be well for the government to deduct from Mr. Morris's salary, the sum he will receive as delegate to the Convention?some Ave or six hundred dollars. This sum would help to fill up the revenue, and have a good effect as a precedent, to be adopted in similar cases, in future. If a man accept an office, and absent himself from it, without just cause, be certainly ought not to receive the emoluments of his office during his absence. It is said that Mr. Morris is to be a candidate for governor of this State. He may depend on re ceiving oirr nnaiviaea support for that or any other office he may aspire to. We will exert all our influence to elect him?for then we should get rid ol him as postmaster. But the probability is, that it he be elected Governor, he will immediately no to work and obtain *oiii? other employment. L*J i ii qwpf THE ADJOURNMENT OF C0MGRE8S. The Bualneai of the Sculon, and the Operation of tlie Principal Bill* Passed. To-day, at 12 o'clock, Congress adjourns, after a session of eight months and eight days, having ' commenced 011 the 2d day of December, 1845, aiul ending on the 10th of August, 1846. There have been a very great number of private bills passed ; but with peihaps one exception, more 1 important measures have been perfected this session of Congress than in any previous one. They may be enumerated in the following order:? l?t. The Oregon Notice. 2il. The Declaration of Wtr with Mexico. 3d. The Ratification of the Oreron Treaty. 4th. The Ad Valorem Tariff. 6th. The Warehousing Bill. 6th. The Sub-Treaiury. 7th. The River and Harbor Bill. 8th. The French Spoliation Bill. Of these, the two latter have been vetoed. The River and Harbor bill has keen twice vetoed before and if the position taken by President Polk i* a proper one, it will undoubtedly be vetoed as often as it may pass Congress; and the only way to get the appropriations ler the objects proposed, will be by a two-thirds vote. The princi- 1 pal objection to this bill was its unconstitutionality. This alone was sufficient to condemn it at once; but if it is unconstitutional now for the Go- ( vernment to appropriate money for the improve- 1 merit of rivers and harbors, it has always been since the adoption of the constitution, and consequently appropriations heretofore made and ex- , pended, have been illegal. An immense amount : of public money has been expended in the im- i provement of rivers and ports not directly con- < uected with foreign commerce; and how is it that constitutional objections have not hitherto been made against these expenditures'! If Congress only has the power to make appropriations for tho improvement of those rivers and harbors, directly engaged in foreign commerce, there has been a great want of constitutional knowledge in ; former executives, in not vetoing bills making , appropriations for the improvement of other | rivers and harbors. This point appears to be pretty well settled by ' the veto message of President Polk; and we shall i hereafter have no more competition or rivalry in I Congress between representatives from different sections ol the country, for sectional advantages of this nature. It is now established that Congress has no riuht to appropriate funds for the improvement of ports not connected with foreign navigation, and that will be the basis of all future bills of this nature. At runny of our ports of entry, no foreign goods have ever boen entered, and no duties ever collected. They are not. therefore, connected with foreign commerce ; and, consequently, cannot { claim any appropriation from government for i improvement of their navigation. The bill vetoed by the President contained appropriations for i more than twenty objects of internal improve- j < ment, called harbors, at places which have never i . been declared by law either ports of entry or de- i I livery, and at which there has never been an arrival of foreign merchandise, and from which there has never been a vessel cleared for a foreign country. The Oregon affair has been disposed of; both the notice resolutions and the treaty. Considerable excitement lias recently been produced by the announcement that the British Government claimed the perpetual navigation of the Columbia river. It matters very little what that government may claim. Any construction which may be put upon the section of the treaty relating to the navitions of the Columbia, different from that understood by our Government, although not expressed by the Government of Great Britain, will be of little consequence. When the time arrives for us to place our own construction upon the expressed and implied meaning of ihe treaty, we shall j oo uiuier aDie 10 sustain me position we may assume than at present The treaty secures the ' " masterly inactivity" so important to us. There ! has been a meun, contemptible species of diplo- i macy resorted to by the British Government, in negociations upon this question, and is about on ; a par with that used in the North Eastern Bound- j ary Question. The war with Mexico is likely to be a longerwinded affair than was anticipated. When Congress proclaimed the country in a state of wnr with Mexico, appropriations were made to carry ] on the hostilities. These appropriations amounted i to a little more than twenty millions of dollars, and ' were supposed to be sufficient to carry the affair through to a successful termination. It now ap- | pears, however, that the President has a plan to settle the whole trouble by the aid of two mil. lions more. It is to be hoped that he will succeed, | but we advise him to go on with the war until 1 Mexico steps in and cries " enough." We wil[ j then take California to cover our war expenses ; i fil! up that fertile territory with our people; fortify 1 I the magnificent bay of San Francisco ; and turn j j owr attention to the rich trade of the Pacific and ' ' the East Indies. | i The tariff, the warehousing bill, and the sub- ! : treasury, are connected in such a munser, that 1 tliey must rise or fall together. It is our impression that these bills, individually and collectively, will work more favorably for the people, than for the government; that the independent treasury will secure to the manufacturers all the protection they require, while it will restrict the revenue of the government from imports. The warehousing bill will aid the otiier two in their operations, and tend to preserve a uniformity in the supply of j foreign merchandise, regulating more by the actual demand, which may from time to time arise, and make this city the great depot ?f foreign manufactures imported, and of domestic products for export. It will give our commercial marine employment, and make it more profitable than it has been for years. We ' shall carry on ann extensive external trade, | it' we can so call it. Large quantities of merchandise will he imported, but not entered for consumption, consequently the government will derive no revenue from it, and immense quantities of foreign merchandise will he exported, from this external deposit the same as though it had never been within our limits. The navigation laws of dillerent nations protect their own commerce in the carrying trade with their colonies ; and this vrnrehouso bill, will throw a portion of the carrying trade l?etween the British colonics and Great Britain into our hands. Heretofore we have imported foreign merchandize principally for consumption, we shall now import largely for exportation, and in this way give a greater activity to our commerce. Th* Orkoo* Tkkritory?Grants or lands to ( Emioratts.?We are glad to see that the Presi- ' dent of the United States, in his message to Con- 1 gress, recommending a territorial government to be formed in that distant region,suggests that emi- | grants should be aided by liberal grants of land I on their arrival. We consider this a very good i suggestion, and hoj>e it will be acted upon, if not ! during the present session, at the next. It is undoubtedly the policy of the general government, to promote emigration to that country, and encourage it in every way possible, not only by removing the obstacles in the way, but also giving a premium to every actnal settler. This I premium might consist ?f a section ol land to cv- ( ery liead of a family, and a half section to every , male settler over twenty-one years of age. If nn < f inducement like this were held out, we should 1 soon see the wilds of Oregon settled by a race of | i i hardy emigrants,who would shortly make the free 1 navigation section of the treaty with England, a nullity. The wild animals of America have an instinctive horror of the sound made by the woodman's i axe, and fly before it in terror. The Hudson's Bay | Company would soon (all to the ground if a pre- 1 i raium was put upon migration. , - ~ -V, nualrlMl ud ImImI.

We omit their names, V but the joke, however, is too good to be lost. It appears these two gentlemen were seated together on Saturday night, imbibing a full dose of the brewer's sweetwort, ' which caused each man to feel his " corn," when after hi settling the Oregon question, squaring up matters with r< Tkt Baltimore Clipper given a lift of the damage done by the heavy itoim in that city, from whibh it appear* that a great amount of property wa? destroyed. oi The bank of Wiliiamsport, Md., wm moved into ita p new building a few day* lin'e, find the money locked up in it* now vault.

Thii last H drink teemed to put new life into the parties, tor no >o sooner was it down, than the builder ottered to bet the M brewer $5 that he dared not go to Coney Ulan.I. The B< brewer, whose beer wai on the rise, feeling determined 9a not to be " bluffed" off", bet him the fft that he'd go; conleijucntly the money wa? put up.

Chauncev Wetmore, ed at hia retidence,Bergen Heights New Jersey, on Sa irday morning at one oclock, A. M., after a painful illsss of r few days duration. Death seems to have been isy with our naval officers on this atation of late. Yesrday the late purser Handy was consigned to the mb. and but a few weeks since Purser Rice: all of these

ficers war* either natives of thia State or long its resisnts. Commander Wetmore was most favorably known nong us, having been attached to our receiving and ;hool ship, tha North Carolina, for a long period prior i hia promotion, and for two years as her chief execuve officer. Aa a drill officer he stood high among those r hia grade, and waa particularly well qualified for the isponsible duties of such a ship. He was a most acimplished navigator, and a strict disciplinarian. The ival regulations found in him a strict constructionist. ia whin m enforced obedience to order*, lie w*s ever und the sailor'* faat friend. There are but few of our tizens who cannot bear witnes* to the almost unearned condition of that noble ?hip, while in hi* charge, id of hi* oourteou* and hoipltable reception of ail visir* on *hipboard. Captain Wetmore entered the naval irvice when a boy of 13 year* of are, and served with 1 ommodore Chauncey in Ul several battles upon Lake ntario. He also was with the lamented Porter, when i ifending the shores of the Chesapeake Bay during the arof law, and with him during a part of the me morae last oruise of the frigate L**ex. At the battle of ittle York, he wa* midshipman of the boat which lan- j >d the Arst detachment of sailors who went to the res- | m of Oeneral I'ike, under the command of his gallant lend, (then) Lieutenant Gregory. We are, in common ! 1th hi* other friends, greatly pained at his death, and uly sympathize with his bereaved family. Bovlino Orkkn?Those of our good citizens who oeisionly look through the railing! of this piece of round, and seo a pile of stones reflected in a puddle of ater, have been struck with amazement at the appeartce of two nondescripts within that sanctum usually ivoted to lame ducks, mud, stone, and weed*. Some id they were artificial, but general opinion give* them e credit of being live bipeds or one-ped*, for but one ' g is visible, and that i* like a two feet pipo stem supirting a bundle of red flannel. We were enlightened to tneir real qualitv by the reply of a boy to his Bowecompanion, who observing their peculiar movements, oke in that energetic manner so natural to the race, that's a devil of a go." " No," replied he of the unaahed shirt, " it's only a flamin-go." We retired in invulsions. Awsiko Posts.?There is every reason to believe that , e Common Council will soon direct the awning posts other streets, as well as Nassau, to be removed. We ould suggest to those who are about to erect awnings i fix them according to the new method, which will not >st more than by the old.

St. George's Church.?Vesterday morning, the series in 8t George's Church, Beekman street, were 1 srformed by the Rev. D. A. Tyng; after which the Rev. r. Tyng preached a deeply interesting discourse from Paul's Kpistle to the Collossians, 3d chap. 10th and h ver. " Ve have put off the old man with his deeds, ! put on the new man, which is renewed in know- i dge after the image of him that created him." The 1 ev. preacher here asserted that the apostle was urging 'on tho Church at rollosse the fulfilment of the duties 'd obligations of their new charucter?of the new man j that divine life, that life of righteousness and holies which Christianity requires. He described, in a 1 ear and vivid manner, what this figurative expression the old man and new man meant?that man must be snsformed?it is the conversion of the depraved heart the influences of the Holy Ghost; it is the beginning ; a new life; it is the separation from the old man, and , e renewal of an apostate with his God. God gives m now new purpose* and objects?he is governed by > >w principles?he seeks for objects unknown to him sfore?he Is in the world, but not of the world. He is, nphaticallv, new man. He was in darkness?he is )w in light?he was blind?the scales are now reoved, and he tees the glories that await his regeneited and renewed life. The audience was large, and cceedinaly attentive to the very solemn admonition hich fell from the reverend speaker.

Cincinnati, July 81,1846. Opinion in the Wat of Captain Duncan?Ajfta to Xtw Yorktrt. On the way from New Orleans to old Gotham, have stopped for a few days in this city, and a sw moments since, read a few lines in your paier, relative to Capt. Duncan, of our army, in rhich you very properly suggest that he, (Capt. ).) should not be overlooked in those expressions f esteem, &c., that have been shown to most of ur officers in command of corps on the 8th and thof May. 1 have had intercourse with a nuin>er of our otficers who were on the field, and peronal friends of General Tuylor, and do not hesi. Me to say that no officer on the field of the 8th f May drperves more credit than Capt. Duncan. Gen. Taylor considered the battle of the 8th as /on, mainly through the energy and skill with /hich ho worked his battery; ana in tha General's ,'ords, " he knows not only what to do. and when i do it, but does it without waiting for orders." hope our great commercial city are not too much ngrossed in money making to aot as becoming iem, and as others have done in other States, s a New Yorker, though living far away, I feel nough interest in my native State ana city, to rge this suggestion of yours, and shall sur-ly ike pleasure in contributing mv mite if any triute of appreciation of the conduct of Capt. D. i to be offered. 1 will not say Capt. l). was the lost gallant and efficient officer on the field of le 8th, but I will say. (and who will gainsay it,) o officer was more gallant than he, and should e be forgotten by his countrymen, when (as you iy,) all the officers but he, have had some testimonial of the estimation in which their deeds are eld by their fellow citizen#. The neglect would Imost become a silent reprimand or censure, rhich certainly New York will not long suffer to list. Literary Intelligence The truateea and faculty of Dartmouth College, N.

ITu Jta? between the Northern j| Light and Syren?Lieut. Luther, a Hero of the ! Rio Grande, frc., f-c. 1 " la a Newport letter, dated, I believe, on the 5th ^ ult., I gave you a short account of the second race between the yachts Northern Light and H Syren. In this letter, if I mistake not, I stated ei that the captain of the Light admitted hi* schoon- < q er to be fairly beaten. She was beaten you will v rM*nllMt?fllirlv HiflfnnnA.1 rim ati/aif Capt. Winchester, however, admitted at the ^ same time that any yacht, pilot, or sail boat in the b harbor, might have done the same for her, as did tc the Syren. But il beaten under the circumstanoes ^ of the race of Tuesday, he does not, therefore, ac- ^ knowledge her inferiority as a sailing craft to her opponent. It is bnt fair to state the circumstances of Tuesday's race, which are as follows:? r The Northern Light had been put into light weather rig?that is, ten feet had been addeu to each of her masts, making them 76 and 74 feet respectively, to a deck oi 62 feet. Moreover, her e| canvass had been considerably enlarged, and in this rig she had never been tried under a stiff r< breeze. In light breezes she has beaten every w thing tliat has sailed against her, the Syren not a excepted; and in her old or heavy weather rig, she has, we are informed, never been beaten by anv vessel whatever. T U pon the day of the second race, Tuesday, it not only blew a stiff breeze but a gale, and the sea d was very heavy. This, with her tall masts and U increased canvass, rendered her unmanageable, h and completely crippled her, so that the captain ii gave up the race at once, confessing himselfbeaten " for the day. It must be recollected, however, that h in four races (hat have been run between the b Syren and Northern Light, the latter has won two li of them ; and her spirited captain has no idea of K giv ng it up. He intends immediately on his re- | b turn to Boston, to replace the old " sticks " and ri try it again. We like this nautical emulation. How much o nobler it is!?how much less cruel!?how much c more consonant with our naval and commercial b character, than horse racing, dog lighting, or c pugilism. To-day the yacht squadron sailed out of our bay tl on a short visit to Bristol, a small place about e fourteen miles up the Narragansett. They went a thither, we understand at the hospitable invita- s tion of some gentlemen yachters of that place. They,will return to Newport in the evening. I Looking from my window, I saw a gentleman \ hobbling slowly past on crutches in an undress n uniform; on his head was a broad brimmed Mexi- c can sombrero: he wore a Ions beard, and seemed quite emaciated from the effects of disease, or tl wounds. It was the latter, received in the battles b of Palo Alto and Guerrero, as I found upon in- z quiry. The invalid himself was Lieut. Luther, who has just arrived at this place for the benefit e of his impaired constitution. We are much mis- j l taken if the sweet sea breeze, the cool zephyrs t of the Narragansett, arid the hospitable hearths of Newport, do not soon restore him to his pristine c vigor. He will no doubt leave Newport as good I as new, and leave the crutches behind him too. J We have been informed that the Brooklyn City <! Guards are on their way to Newport. They are \ expected here on Monday or Tuesday next. To- s night a grand ball at the Ocean. Ecolier. Newport, R. I., Aug. 1,1846. The Daguerreotype Ruse. i: Some time ago'there came a "nice young 1 man" into these parts, apparently in search of a ^ wife. He certainly hit upon the right place to go t a wiving?inasmuch as wc have on hand at pre- < I sent any quantity of the beautiful material. This J Coelebs, wo believe, hailed from Gotham; and what with good dress and address, a light foot in s the dance, and a liberal show of" tin," he was in 8 the fair way of having himself "doubled." He t had got considerably smitten by a very pretty o girl from the city of Quakers, and it was generally d supposed that there was a slight contra-hang on * the part of the maiden. His manner of courtship was somewhat peculiar, smacking strongly c of the romantic and mysterious. He had in his . J" possession the daguerreotype likeness of a very s beautiful young lady, with which he was accus t to mod at tunes to work upon the jealous feelings j of his present ladye love, by hints and i.ther mys- a terious inuendoes, leading to the belief that the Ua- t iruerreotvDed beauty had been a former sweet heart, who had been by him rather cavalierly and t mercilessly treated. I t It so happened, that one evening our young \ gentleman was exhibiting the picture of his " old a flame" to a lutle circle ol ladies, and endeavoring o by his praises of her beauty, to torture the bosom t of his new sweetheart with jealousy. The mi- t niature at length reached the hands of a young \ lady who had just arrived, and who was quite c a stranger to our hero. Upon looking at the per- i trait the lady started as if she had been stuck with t a pin. " Bless me," said she; "this is mine." a "Mine, madam?pray what do you mean 1" ! s stammered forth our hero, who seemed not a lit- s tie alarmed at something. j \ " What do I mean 1 why that this is my like- ^ ness!" c " It cannot be, madam, it is the port?" a " It is my portrait, sir?do I not know my own t dress?my diamonds 1 and here, sir, is the very necklace which I wore when it was taken." s The mass of testimony thus offered, together t with the presence of the original, was proof j " without a loop or hinge to hang a doubt on," c the young gentleman became quite confused, and the lady continued waxing wrath, and locking daggers from her large dark eyes. "How came you by this, sir 1 I am sure I have not lost it." " It did not come from you, madam ;" was the somewhat Hogged reply. "Ha! I see. then; and the beautiftil crea- j ture's eyes beamed with pleasure ; " the artist has taken a duplicate?the sly fellow. Well sir," she continued, alter a moment's reflection, " you may keep this picture, but don't tell that you have broken tue heart of the original 1" The young man fumbled the picture into his pocket, made some stammering excuse, and left the room. He has'nt been seen in these parts since. Ecoliik. South Bay, Oneida Lake, Aug. 6, 1846. Traveling?All tortt of Roadt?Fulling, $-c. fjfe. Since I left your Empire City, I have, by steam, boat, railroad, and canal to Syracuse, and by ! plank road, and a short distance on a rough road 1 beside, finally " brought up" in this retired spot, i where I now address you. i I like the steamboat on river and lake ; it gives 1 ' one time to read or write, to take " notes of tra- j vel," to talk or sing, dance or play, as may suit I 1 the taste. And " for a change," a packet is not , bad. The monotony of that kind of conveyance is so often broken by passing through locks, talc- , ^ I i?g water, receiving and landing passengers, if j t one be not in haste to " go ahead," that it is very ' [ agreeable. And for dashing ahead, notwithstand- ; ' ing (lie eternal rumbling and putllng of the en- c ! sine and the dust, the cars are admirable. But the plank road is a novelty in this country. From c i Salina to Fort Brewerton (15 miles) a single track f j is completed. A ride across that, on a pleasant , day, with a good team and carriage, is delight- * ful. An invitation to praise is given at evej-y step, 1 wfyen contrasting the present smooth and agreea- ' ^ ble surface of that road with its fo.'mer unequal- \ led p?tchy, sloughy, corderoy, wagon breaking, . I aggravating roughness. I have travelled over the t road in former days,when, if we escaped being up set about once in going a mile, or breaking down, we thought ourselves highly favored. Now, on* can ride from Salina to watertown not only with perfect safety, but with the greatest pleasure. The plank road is decidedly the thing, where the " soil is not favorable for good ronds without. Heretofore that part of the county through which this road passes was considered very poor; o but that was owing to the fact that the roacf was i, so intolerable, even in summer, that no one could ^ see anything to admire, being constantly " on ^ guard" against upsetting, or tome other calamity. " But what about South Bay 1" you will say. Well, it is the place where the people of this re- P gion go for relaxation and a ride on the lake ; but h most of all to fish ; and a fine place it is for the p latter sport I assure you. li After sailing a mile and a half from the shore, we anchored in about twelve feet water, between two beautiful islands, and where we enjoyed a 1 splendid view of the country in every direction, tl with a c?ol, refreshing breeze: and then com- a menced our sport?baiting the hook and taking j up the natives of the deep, from a bass of four m pounds weight down to a shiner of an ounce. And . such a mixed multitude a* we had foun- ' dering in tho bottom of our bnn' in a short f< time, as Jonathan or Sam Slick would say, " beat tl all na?ur " There w re ba*?. and pike and perch, ii and shiners, bull-hea.ls, e?rl?, ptimpkm seed, and j, the knows h>w inanv more sorts. Thayer ti has promised to paint a fishing seen*, in which he ? . will represent the excited fishermen pulling the hookrd victimf from the parting water, and the I " various torts as they were seen 011 the bottom or , tl ( our jolly-boat on the oooaeion And I hope be | i ill not leave kia own happy, excited faoe oat, if. lourammbarliii delight while hauling in.with long line, a baas weighing about five pounds.? "given " to tfee life" it will he a rich painting. The bay, from this point toBrewerton, about I ve miles, u delightful for fisliing, or for a pleasnt sail ; and there are large numbers of boats lied with ladies and gendemen enjoying it. On Tuesday next, the proprietors of tlie Plank .oad, open tha gate and give a free ride to Brewrton and back. The lake amusements at Brewrton, and the dinner to be prepared by Bennett, fthe hotel kept there, with other entertainments, rill secure a large turn out. Syraouse ia growing rapidly. Several large and aluable blocks are now nearly completed, beside till larger number of dwellinga. One of tha uildings is erected by John Wilkinson, Esq., and > be occupied as a hotel of the first claas. And, y the way, this is a great place for hotels for one f its size, and a great place for many things I ave not now room to mention. &u?u?.

Mad Dogs* Sir.?I have recentl/ noticed accounts of dogs n a rabid state being at large iu the streets; hat they have bitten various persons, as well as ither dogs, that would of course multiply the nischief; and I have heard of one or two lainenable instances of hydrophobia in consequence, f the proper remedy be applied within a modeate time after the accident, there is no reason to Iread any such result. During my residence in the Brazils in 1814 and ubsequently, I frequently witnessed the distresing and fatal effects arising from the bite of ratlesnakes, scorpions, und other venemous replies, that abound in tropical regions. It often iccurred to me, that an application which would lecompose chemically the virus thus insinuated, vould immediately alter and destroy its deleterimsness. With this view,I used aqua ammonia to the bite if a scorpion, in the first instance, and I found it emoved naiii and inflammation almost instant y\ I then extended it to the bite of the rattlenake, with the same success. Being now cerain of its efficacy, I recommended it to several ilanters in the interior, who never afterwards lost l slave in this way, although death had always >een the inevitable result before. Reasoning from analogy, I ultimately came to ho conclusion, that the venom of such animals, Hid the virus of others in a state of rabidnesi, vere probably very similar, from their symptoms ind results, so that about 1815,1 wrote an article in the subject, which, to the best of my recotlecion, I forwarded to the Philosophical Transacionj. In this, I suggested that aqua ammonia vould be likely to produce the same chemical hange in the virus in cases of hydrophobia, and f so, it would prove an effective remedy against hat evil. On my return to England ia 1826, an old friend ind physician, informed me that he had, in conequence, frequently so used it, axd always with uccess. The incisions should be constantly bathed vith it; and three or four doses, diluted, taken inrardly, during the day. The knife and lunar laustift are never needful, and, at the very best, ire but a doubtful remedy, as neither can reach he interior absorbents nor the general circulation' I have heard several physicians very unphiloophically declare, that aqua ammonia, applied o wounds, will create inflammation.
