New Qhleans, Sunday Morning,) August ii, S The steamship James McKlm, arrived from the Brazos Santiago this morning, bringing intelligence from Camargo, down to the 13th inat. The new* ia not important, but ii extremely interestI ingThere was considerable sickness among the Georgia, Mississippi and othor more northerly volunteers, owing to the extreme heat and the bad weather. Gen. Taylor arrived at Camargo, on the Hatchle F.agl?> with a portion of the Textin Infantry and United States troops, on the Oth. The Whiteville also arrived with troops on the 13th, making the force about 3 000 stroug, and re-inforcement* of volunteers hourly expeoted.? The.-6 is no doubt, from everything that I can learn, that there will be a grand battle at Monterey, and the whole army expect it, and are anxious that it shall take place Orders were given to Gen. Worth, on the 11th, to be in readiness to march toward! Monterey in eight day* from that time. The tioops were kept in constant drill, and the discipline was excellent. Intelligence was received in the early part of the month, that Col. Seguin and a party of Mexicans were in force at China, a small town atiout 70 miles from Camargo. inland, and McCulloch'i Texan Hangers, about 60 strong, made a forced march to that place, and arrived there one night, aurrounded the town, and captured one or two Mexicans, armed men Seguin had received intelligence of the approach of the Texans, and got off about an hour before they arrived. The Texans sooured the country the next morning, but could tind no Mexicans, and alter recruiting returned to Camargo very much fagged out. The term of service of his company having expired, (three months ) they are to he disbanded, but immediately another troop is to be enlisted for thiee months more, and of picked men. The health of the army at that point was excellent. Gen Taylor adheres firmly to his order against the grog shop keepers, and camp followers, and will not suffer them to remain. I can give you hut little intelligence from Matnmoras, except that the expedition which was to have inarched from (here, had started, so I am informed, at the appointed time, and that only the regular garrison remained there. The volunteer* who had been in the neighborhood, and had not joined Col. Hay's expedition to Tampico, etc., being either on the march or under orders to march. This is all the intel igence of interest I can glean by the McKim. The McKim came from the Brazos in 66 hours. She brought as passengers Captains Miller and Lynde, and asssistaDt surgeon Symons, U. S A. Captains Kamser, Moore, Bradley, Urambling, and Lieuts. jenkings, Dobbs and Gr-ay; Major West wood, Dr. W. 8. J. Jenkins, volunteer oiflcers, and 100 volunteers, all on the sick list. She left at the Brazos the ship Lehigh and brig Jefferson, and several schooners. Schr. Oregon, Capt. Speight, of Baltimore, in tow of steamer Monmouth, stiuck the bar across the north breakers and bilged ; she was loaded with government store*?cargo saved, ( el total lou.

Camp La Cartera, Mexico, on the > San Juan, Auguit 3, 1841. ) I wrote you from San Lucia, giving *ome of the inci' dent* of Capt. Duncan's march from Matamora*. It wa* completed on the 30th July, when he encamped on this river four miles above Camargo. Our journey has been through a wild, uncultivated country, hut it is evidently not because nature has been illiberal in her bounties.? The finest land i* running to waste. The few and scattered ranches cannot be called settlement*, or the indif ferent attempt* at tillage, cultivation. The chief difficulty we may find in peopling and improving the country on thi* side of the Rio Grande, will arise from the scarcity of water. But this may be obviated by the digging of well* and the construction of tank*, which an induitriou* and enterpriiing population would not long neglect Through a good interpreter, we convened freely with the people silong the route, and it i* evident that a better feeling towards us prevails here, and in thi* neighborhood, than we found about Matamora*. They soldiers, and indulge in so many saying* complimentary to our cense of right, that we almost persuade ourselves we are not the robbers Parades styles us as nation ? Only one case has occurred wheie we failed to | ay for what we to?k. Passing a Mexican cottage, our men halted at the door to obtain milk or other refreihn.enta they were accustomed to buy on the march ; the door was not opened without reluctance, but when it swung back, a fine American horse was revealed among the inmates, who, >under some trepidatien, overwhelmed us with so many expressioaa of wclcome, that our appearance evidently made them perfectly happy. An examination of the animal showed the letters branded on his hip, U. 3. D., which our commander concluded, so strongly resembled the initials of "United States Dragoons," that he at once decided to arrest the lioise on suspicion, and leave the burden of proof that he was a true Mexican, whicn was stoutly averred, upon hii late possessor. After wc had proceeded sev tral miles, two Mexicans camo up with the assertion that pistol had been stolen by one of our men. Our Captain, scrupulous to avoid leven the ap)>earance of injustice, unhesitatingly paid the exhorbllant price demanded for the weapon, though the fellow's countenance would be a standing im peachment of his veracity all the world over. The horse recognised was without doubt one of those captured with Thornton's squadron in April. Speaking ol American horses, the country hereabouts is thickly infested with Camanches,whose end and aim is theft, and to whom one of our fine showy animals is the greatest earthly prire. For many years they have frequented these grounds, killing and plundering the defenceless inhabitants, though our army will won disperse them, they still linger in the hope uf securing some of the valuables which our advent .displays to their eager gaze. They have already succeeded in carrying otl the animals of several mounted Texasts serving here. Their ordinary method is by effecting a tlamptdr. in a cavalry camp, which they attempt by approaching it with all those unearthly, vocal, and instrumental sounds that Indians alone are capable ol producing. Sometimes they sond a fiery mustang into the drove, and by a mysterious influence, his civilized brethren seem suddenly to acquire his own wild nature and disperse, defying tlie strongest fastenings in their ungovernable fury. So bold have become these savages, that within a day or two Mexicans have been killeil by ment ?u to startling that I involuntarily explored the cranium to discover if my own scalp was safe, having been myself within twenty-four hours at what I now find a very hazardous distance into the forest. Our present camp is near a rancho consisting of several houses The population numerous as usual, and a'l under a venerable patriarch, who lives here with his children and children's children. Probably this little community well illustrates the patriarchal age and government All look up to the ancient ol days lor orders and advicc; I and his word is law in his little kingJom Affection and duty are the incentives to ubedience. and the pictuie is n tiiify agreeable oue of the order and happiness of halfcivilized lile This old man professes intelligent a J* re fitly superior to his clns.?, und having served a* a certain under Kardmand neai ly 4> years ago, tie is ab1* to itll us much ot the changes and convulsions he liai wltn^fscd in that period, His colony ot juvenile rancherosis highly flourishing. Every house is crowded with tlie ehanning little ones. If leisure is afforded before we leave this encampment, > ou shall enter with tne one of these habitations, and we will contemplate the ordinary condition and employment of Mexican lile \V*e obtain, without diflculty, nearly all the comforts afforded by an indifferent farm, but the natural laws of trade, which seem to have been known here, or are speedily sell developed, soon tax as severely for the common necessaries.

Steam, era arrive daily from below, and the native* are teeing ighta that their philosophy had never dreamed of. Thii haa been a village of about 3000 inhabitanti, but during the lait month the San Juan overflowed iti banki, and completely inbmerged the lite of the town. The diitresi ii repreiented to have been appalling ; the poor families having been driven from their homci to a neigh boring eminence, Mid Jorcid to abandon every comtort and necessary of life. The aged grand-father, and the helpless infant have been alike exposed, naked and hungry, to the peltings of the storm Even a glance at tho lavages of the flood, and the frightful devastation it haa spread, raises the tenderest emotions of sympathy in the breasts of the invaders towards tha suffering inhabitants. However it might be under ordinary circumstances, there can ba no doubt, in the mind of the maddeat antiwar daclaimar, that our coming at tha present time, ia most providential to tha people of this San Juan valley.? A he money and supplies that we dispense, alleviates their disttess, and enables the f.oor Mexicans to repair their mislortunes. The violeace of the flood was so great that houses wets undermined and the poorer one W ?0 N YORK, TUESDAY MO ' razed.

The church, even in this I diminutive place, it an immenie tructure, and has some I pretentions to architectural ornaMent Its exact order might puzzle the most scientific, i*rtaking of the ancient and modern, the barbarous and the civilized. It seems ' to have been built by parts and parcel*, according to the meant and wants of the pious, and ttaptiio in its most enlarged, without the technical taeuaing, would perhaps express the style of this sacred oditiaa.

However 1 sweet to the soldier may be the bug!*'* blast or the stirring martial sounds which saluto hi* eqr on every tido in Uiis largo camp, there is not ono *9 wedded to the incidents ol liis stern profession, that htfSloet not delight 1 in the soft harmony of that vesper bell. The calmness of tl<e hour, inviting to.repose ?the aaild spirit of religion, bidding the evil puksio'na of man to be hushed, make all other koumls discordant. Beautiful ijt religion, viewed either in the unlettered savage of the %Ood?, who worships the Ureat Spirit, and looks forward to the blissful hunting grounds of eternity, or the dweller in cities, who worship at Christian altars, and iaAnided on hit way to Heaven by the light of revelation, ^kst never moie attractive than in even these ignorant, ffitr, and otherwise degraded people, whpse worship iitlo evidently in the spirit of sincerity, that it cannot be let* acceptable than it is lovely to behold.

LITTER* FROM THE tqt'ADRON. U. 8. Hteamkr Musisnrri, t Pkmiacola, Aug 30, 1846 $ Thinking it would be a desirable object for you to be enabled to give your readers the intelligence from Vera Cruz and the American squadron, and hoping the natura of the tubject will be *uiHcient apology for thus address, ing a letter to you, I have endeavored to collect the itqm* of most importance. Wo left Vera Cruz on the 14th inst., and arrived at Pensacola the evening of the 18th. Our departure from Vera Cruz was deferred until the arrival of the English mail steamer from Havana, in which Santa Anna was exnnr.ind ha /li/1 nnt rnmo hnurnvpr hut if u-n? nn^nr. rv" ? - ' -v ? ? *" ? stood taat he was to be there ill a few day*. The latest news from Mexico was that the city had declared in favor of Santa Anna. The Moxican stronghold, St. Juan d'Ulloa and the city of Vera Cruz, proclaimed in favor of the exiled President on the 1st of August, on which occasion a salute was fired from the castle All the principal towns in the interior had also declared iu favor of .Santa Anna, and there has been a complete revolution in Mexiro. It is Raid the Santa Anna's adherents are in favor ol peace with tho 1'nited Stales. It appears to be the opinion of all that our difficulties with Mexico will soon be ended. We left the U. S.frigates Cumberland, (fiat; (hip), and Potomac, the staamer Princeton, sloops ol'-war St. Mary's, and Falmouth; brigs Somers, Truxtonaid Porpoise; schrs Reefer, Klirt, Iionita, and Petrel, oil' Vera Cruz and its vicinity. Officers and men all well. On the :24th July, while our launch was in pursuit of a strange sail, she was capsized in a squallaevoral miles from the anchorage, and midshipman Wingate Pillsbury and one seamen were drowned ; the rest of the crcw, 17 men, clung to the boat until they were taken oil'by tho U. S brig Porpoise the next day, after being nine hours in the water. Air. Pillsbury's death was deeply regret ted by all who knew him; ho was a perfect gentleman and a promising olficer. On the 39th Jul} , the frigate Cumberland grounded on a coral reef while running along t e coast. After getting some of her heavy spars, guns, and other things overboard, and starting her water, this ship succeeded in towing her off, she having been on shore 26 hour*. It if supposed her keel is injuied. On the 7th August, wa got under way in company with the and H. b M. frigate Lndymion, and stood along the coast towards the mouth of the Alvarado, with the intention, it was supposed, of catting out some Mexican vessels at anchor up the river. On the way down, the distance being about 30 miles from the anchorage ground of the squadron, all hands were called aft, and captain Adams teld the men thst some volunteers were wanted to go on a boat expedition, and desired those that were willing to go, to step over on the starboard side of the quaiter deck. A general rush was made tor tho starboard side. Inlets than a minute, there was not a man to be seen "any where else," and many were-disappointed in net being able to attract the notice of eur gallant commander while he picked out the boat's crew. A very unusual degiee of excitement an l bustle prevailed en board alter the crews were picked?some grinding cutlasses, some cleaning pistols, quarter gunners preparing the heavy guns and getting everything ready for action?all in higti spirits at the prospect of khanng sosie of the laurels which lien. Taylor been monopolizing. We arrived off the mouth of the river at 3 P. M About 5, this ship, the Princeton, and the three schooners, beat to quarters, and commenced tiring shells at a fort on the right hank of the river. This ship and the Princeton being nearly two miles distant, wero unatde to do much execution, and after firing 4 orS 10 inoh shells, signal was made by the Commodore to cvase. Several hundred troops were seen marching /In w tt to lh* liAQ^h *nr) nftor lit nant th?v a Am of musketry on the schooners?a few ihelU dropped aaongst them soon silenced their fire, and dark put an end to he operation*. It whi exp?cte4 the Mississippi and Princeton would he ordered within a shorter distance of the battery the next morning, and the action continued ; but to the general disappointment and astonishment of almost every one in the squadron, at daylight signal was made by Commodore Connor to get under way for the old anchorage ground. Ilia reasons were not made known ; but it is supposed that the difficulty of getting the large frigates within a proper distance, the rapidity of the current in the river, which renders it impossible for the boats to pull ag inst it, the numbers collected on the beach to prevent a landing, and the threatening appearance of the weather, were the reasons that induced him to leave ns he did.

S Thfl mnvAmpnt* nf 1hn aniltilmn in th? (tull since the Princeton joined it after her last trip to Pensacola, have resulted in so little, that the reader will scarcely be repaid the trouble of peruaal; yet knowing the interest generally felt in all war operations, 1 will give a brief detail of our lute movements. The Princeton lelt Pensacola at 8 o'clock A. M., July 38th, and arrived before Vera Cruz, August 2d, having been just live days on the passage of 860 miles, and consumed 46 tons of coal. Upon her arrival the Mississippi was lying at her old anchorage inside Ureen Island, and the sloop-of-war 8t. Mary's with the brig Porpoise, were cruising oil' and blockading Vera Cruz ; these two vestels have boen constantly ou this duty ever aince. The frigates Cumberland and Potomac with the sloop Kalniouth, and the 3 gun boats, were lying at anchor about 10 miles to the southward of Vera Cruz, at a place called Point Antonia de Lizardo The Princeton ran down and anchored near the Cumberland. We now learned that on the night of the '14th ef July, the launch of the Mississippi had been capsized while cruising under sail, and a midshipman named 1'illsbury and a man had been lost; the remainder of the crew were picked up by the St Marv The Cumberland had been ashore upon u reef for 34 hnurl, and after throwing overboard the spar de:k guns and carting her water, she wan towed oil' on the 39th July by the Mississippi after si* hours pulling. The guns were reco> erod and the ship sustained no damage. 1'he Somen had been cruising down the coast, hut arrived on the 3d of August with a load of green turtle and lime*, which were distributed among the tquadron Upon the morning of August 'id. there had been a revolution at Veia Cruz, a salute of 100 guni was fired, the castle and town having declared for Santa Anna against Paredes. We have also just h?urd that the city ol Mexico has made a similar declaration, including peace with the United States. An action has been fought between the respective partisans, in which the general of Paredes was slain These are all the particulars we have bean able to learn. On the morning of the third, the Commodore transferred his flag to the Princeton, the sttnm ship was immediately got under way, stood up and pawed the blockading vessels oil' Green Island, and came to anchor inside Sacriiicios among the foreign ships. Mere we found the English frigate Endymion and baikof-war Rose ; the Spanish frigate Christino and brig Lavinia ; and tho French brig Mercure. The Commodore was immediately visited by the French, English, and Spanish Captains. After they left us, we returned to our old anchoiage, and the Commodore to his ship. On tho 4th the En 1> in ion came down and anchored near us . on the Mh she was joined by an English corvette, and on 6th by the Rose. The rumor was now rile of an attack to be made on Alvarado?a place about twenty-five miles to the southward ol us, where the Mexicans nave a brig and several gun boats. Great was the note of preparation. and on the morning ef the 7th all the squadron excepting the St. Mary and Porpoise, sailed for Alvarado ; the Princeton towing the Cumberland and the Mississippi towing the Potomac, the Falmouth and Somers having sailed tho night previous. Upon arriving at Alvarado, our force amounted to the two frigates, two steamships, one sloop, one brig and three gun-boats. A few ineffectual shots were ftreu, but none returned except from musketry upon one of the gun-bo its. We sustained no damage and inflicted none, as lar aeaSfrould learn, when night stepped further operations. The defence*of Alvarado consist of small mud fort and a few troops. The next day we itood out to ?e;t ?nd all returned to tho anchorage off Antonia de Lizai do The Knglish vessels that had followed ui down to Alvarado,returned also and anchored near u?. We have since remained quiet, with the exception of the MmM going on the 11th up to Sacriticios and bringing off come beeves and sheep which had been brought down the coast by the St. Mary's. On the evening of the 11th, a small schooner arrived from the Rio Grande and communicated with the Commodore. It is understood,though not ascertained, that she brought despatches from Gen. Taylor. The Mississippi sails to-day, for l'ensacola. Kvery thing is quiet The Knglish mail steamer arrived last evening. Movements of Mania Anna. [Krom the New Orleans Picayune, Aug. 33 J Since our last publication we have been placed in possession of intelligence from Havana, which throws more light u|>on the movement* of Hanta Anna. The letters containing them were brought hither on the P. Soul*-, to bedeliveied personally, from which cause they reached their destination only on Thursday evening last. Krom one of these letters, dated the nth instant, we make an extract:? * ' " * The slow, transient tnglish steamer Arab, is chartered to sail to-night at 11 o'clock. She clears for Sisal, and takes with her Generals Almonte, Ueaon, [we think this should he Rejon?Kds ] Santa Anna and lamily to Mexico. The Monte mma has been undergoing repairi, and was tried a few days since on a pleusure rxcursion, but was found to be completely out ol order. This letter sufficiently accounts for the non-appearance of ?anta Anna at Vera Cru/. before the Missi*?M)pi left there. We announced as far back aa the 1st insMHt, upon the arrival of the Titi, that Gen Basadre, a lormer member of Hanta Anna's Cabinet, sailed Irom Havana for 8i?al and thence to Tabasco on the Iflth of July. We entertain little doubt that his expedition was designed to nniura Ilia wav for ftanta Anna bv lirovidinff the means of speedy communication aloof the roast from Tobasco to Alvarado and Vera <-nir. and making other necessary preparationa. The latait account* we have lrom Tobasco represent that Department in that state of commotion which in Mexico precedei a revolution. The people were even in advance ol the Vera Cruzanoa, and will no doubt flock to Santa Anna'a standard, now that ao many department* have declared for him. We have leen ether letters from Havana which leave no kind ef doubt upon our minds that Santa Anna got off at the time he expected to do, the 8th of August. We hall expect to hear from him next at Vera Cruz, though we tear we may bo kept in a provoking state of suspense till the next Knglish steamer'* advice* reach u?, some three week* hence.

There is a great deal of talking "arouud and around, about and a' out,'' but the truth is apparent through all disguises and pretext*, flaring availed herself of the weakness of tha Mexican confederacy, ahe attempted to extort some peculiar commercial privilege* from the Cential Government, anj she aucceedet^in her design.

This queation settled in its favor, the Peninaula is as thoroughly Mexican at heart a* any portion of the country, and the present display of independence is but a hollow show.

Newi from Santa Pe. [Prom the St. Louia Republican, Aug. 34.] Several gentlemen arrived in this city on Saturday evening from New Mexico and Chihunnua. Among I them, we hear the name* of Meaara. M'Knigh', Steveni son and Aubry. They left Santa Ke on the Ifitn of July, and Mr. M'Knight left Chihnahua on the 3<l of July.? : Un the 17th, tboy reached Independence, having perioime<l the whole trip from that point and back in ninetythree daya, remaining thirty days jn Santa Ke.

It waa expected, we learn, that Oen. Kearney would enter that town about the iOth or iiii of thio month, and that no resistance would be offered, either there or at any point in the interior against which they might proceed. Business was very dull in New Mexico. The miaea were almoit deserted. It was laid that the governor had offered to the Comanche and Apache Indiana a reward of )A pei bead for all the mules and horses which they might steal from Oen.

The companies which lett in the anring paid a duty of centa per lb., or ftMa per wagon load. A largo number of trader* and government wagona, bound out, were met in the following order, a* we find it recorded in the journal of Mr. A ubry, which we were kindly permitted to copy. On the 3d Auguat, met 11 . -government wagon* at Coon Creek; 6th, met forty two Jovermnent wagons at Aili Creek; 7th, met three tin er? wagons hound for Taos, at Big Cow Creek, anil twenty government Wagon* at Small Cow Creek; al?o, two belonging to trader* whose name* were not kuown; 8th, met Magoffin's party at Turkey creek; 9th, Armijo's wagon* at Lost Spring; 10th, met 31 government wagon* at Diamond Springs; an<l on the 1 Ith 30 more at Council Grove; on tho same day, met twenty wagons belonging to Mexican traders, at Bean creek; lJtli, met Algeur with twenty wagons at Turtle creek; 13tb, met tlx wagon* belonging to trader*, bound for the mountains in New Mexico; also seven tra :ert' wagon* at creok No. 110. | On the aame day, met at Adams' grove the company of > volunteer* from I'lutte and Monroe counties; llth, met ' the Boone county company at Hickory Toint, and on the amo day, met Gentry with forty-five wagon*, at Black Jack. There were some reports at Chihuahua ami Santa Ke, 1 of the march of inconsiderable force* of military, to- ! ward* di/ferent points, but no serious opposition waa expected to the entrance of Gen. Weol'a command at Chi- i nuahua.of which they had heard, or that of Gen. Kearney, at Santa Ke. Plenty of grass and water were found on the route between Santa ku and Independence, but it was exceedingly queitionable whether subsistence could be obtaiued for Geo Kearney's command, in New Mexico. It is believed that the urmy must depend altogether for subsistence on suppliM from the United States. We laarn from the officers of the steamer Balloon, which arrived on Saturday, that another large body of Mormons, estimated at from four to six thousand in num. ber, had arrived at Council Bluffs, and were eucamped there and in that vicinity. A part of them were to proceed to Bellview, but the most ef them expected to pass the winter at the Bluffs and in tho Indian purchase, on the opposite side of the river, where thev have extensive tiacta under cultivation. They say that they have sufficient provisiens to last them for Alteon months, but will have to provide clothing and other articles necessary to their comfort duiing their jottrney, befoie they leave thh ettlement*.

All business is suspended, although the town appears lively, and many |>eople are here from the country to lea-n the result of the proceedings of the Assembly.? They have only four hundred and fifty soldiers in this place ?one thousand are on tlieir way from the lower country, and they say they can raise 15,000 in ten days? but nrobahly not mor>- than one fourth would lie aimed.

In retaking the animals, one of our men was shot in the head by the Indians, but he Will reecvor fiom the wound. Mr. Waters, who has just arrived from Cali fornia. reports the Indians as being very bad on the road. The Canutes would kill as high as six to eight of their horses of a night, notwithstanding there w-ts a itroug guard; but the Indians wero in a starving condition, and his company suffered for want of water. They liveil on horse meat alone for two months.

Intelligence from Canada. Our latest advices from Montreal, are of the 29th; Quebec, the 27th ; Kingston, the26th ; and Hamilton, the 28th inst. The Montreal Herald of the 28th, gives the following summary of intelligence :? Wo have little chango to report in the aspect of political affairs since the last mail. It appears that an oilier has been made to the heads of the trench Canadian party, to place at their disposal three seats in tho Executive Council, and that the overture was immediately rejected, ho that things remain in the same condition as before. I The Hon. Mr. Justice Holland, the Senior Puisne Judge, is said to have returned hia office?or rather, it is said, that hii resignation liai been accented, for it wai tendered many month) ago, on the ground of the great labor thrown upon the Puime Judges by the illness of the chief. We believe, that the retirement of this gentleman will be universally regarded aa a severe lots to the public. Ha was considered by the bar us somewhat too hrutqur in his manner, but the highest opinion wan entertained of hia learning, talent* anil integrity. The American drawback bill, and the reduction of the protection afforded to Canadian produce is already felt here?and many of our merchants are preparing to oa tablish themselves at New York. On the other hand, some of the beat informed persons amongst us entertain the moat sanguine hopes of benefit from the change in the British commercial policy. These persons believe, that our advantages under the old regime were morn than countei balanced by the restrictions imposed upon us, and they desire nothing more than to have tho free trade policy fairly carried out, so that we may have our share of the profit. Meetings have already been held by the Montreal Board of Trade, and jointly by the Toronto Board of Trade and Agiicultural Society, at which the repeal of the imperial differential duties, the repeal of the 3s. frontier duty on American wheat?the modification of the British Navigation Laws, and the opening of the St. Lawrence, have neen dwolt upon as essentially necessary to the prosperity of the country. It will be | remarked, that all these measures, except the second, are purely imperial ones, una mere is uu <iuu?> m? ?v- i tive means will he speedily used to bring them under the notice of the British government. Our people have vigorously exerted themselves, alio, to lessen our difficulties by the promotion of the Railway from thiicity to Portland. Two-thirds of the Htock has heen already taken up, and tendeis are advertised for, for constructing the first thirty milos of the road. When the news tnat the work wai to be begun reached the Kastern townships, it was speedily circulated through the district ,by extras issued lrom the office of the Sktrkrooke Oateltf, extempory jubilee was got up. A mail has neon advertised from Montreal to the Sault Ste. Marie, a long way on the road to Oregon. This ia intended in a great measure for the benefit of the parties now actively employed in organizing mining works on Lake Superior. A considerable sum has been subscribed for the suffer ers at Laprmirie, and the neighboring Parish of 8t. John* ha* called upon the Quebec Committee to return whatever proportion of the balance which the latter body has in hand, may be presumed to have arisen from the St. John'a subscription, it being underitood that all the real sufferers at Quebec, havo long been relieved. The Quebeckeri have declined. A painful excitement has been produced by the murder of a man named Leonard, in open day, at the Montreal race*. There ii too much reason to believe, that this occurrence arose from party feeling, and it? ss usual?gave rise to other acts of violence, which have kept the city since in a state of alarm and uneasineaa ? The jury have returned a verdict of wilful murder against five men by name, and ether person* unknown, and have made a presentment accusing the magistrate* of gross neglect of duty, for neglecting proper means of keeping the peace?a censure which these gentlemen well dereive. Two men have been arrested. The crop* are generally very good, but it i* feared there will ke r recurrence of the iiotstoe disease.

CHAhL.ES WIUHT DAVIS HARRISON JOHN ELVOORT SIMON HOPKINS I auU im#n<: dcinption in S|K?ci?! of the note* of tl.e bank ; to-day the panic has entirely subsided, "?n<l the gentlemen ot the institution are relieved from all hut tho ordinary importu nities attendant upon their calling. It ii at thin prenent moment difficult to trace the origin of this affair, which might, in it* many ramification*, have proven of serious eninarra^sment to the mercantile community generally. | It ia, however, believed to have been caused by misupj prehension rather than malice. That no foundation ex| mted for the alarm, has since been more than established. ! It is said that an individual drew a check upon the Bank, which when presented was met with the reply of " no | funds " The holder of the check went to the drawer, i and stated hii disappointment, when (as we are informed) he was told not to be anxious, '* it would tie all right in a few dava." Thia explanation was by the public applied to the institution and not to the individual, who, we are informed, had no intention of injuring the Bank when making thia unfortunate remark. Like wild-flre the story spread, and the consequence we have stated. No proceeding could have been less unfounded. The Montreal press, generally, ii silently on the subject I of Lord Cathcart'i recall.
