Who woulu hare thought that auch would hare been her iato a little more than two weeka ago, when leering your gay port with her pennanta atreaming aloft, and " walking the watera like a thing of life?" But auch ia her melancholy hiatory. There ahe Ilea on tho north aide of the paaaago up to the harbor, about halfway between the fiih market and the Punta?laying on her broadaide, with about fire feet of water in her bilge, her after part laying high upon the recka.and the tide ebba and flowi in the reaael. She will be a total lota, and no little regret ia felt here at the loaa of a reaael ao popular with our paaaengera. She had a ahort peaaage out of nine daya. Youra.rery trnly, 4tc.

The rapid fall of the baremeter, and the general apKtrance of the weather from 18 A. M. of October 10, at ivana, led the inhabitants to apprehend a coming storm At 10 P. M. a terrible hurricane set in, the barometer, in F.Dglish inches, being at that hour at 39 deg. 68 rain , tha thermometer 80 deg., the wind blowing in strong squalls irom K.?. At midnight the barometer was 39 deg. 60 miu. At 4 A. M. of the 11th, the barometer had fallen to J9 deg 34 uc , but the thermometer itill itood at 80 deg At that hour the wind had veered from N ?. to N N.K , and the squalls had become furioui. Ai t)A M the barometer waa 39 deg. 14 eec., with the wind very violent and changing between N E. and N.W. At B A. M. the barometer wai 38 deg 6 eec , and the thermometer at 79 The wind by thii time a continued Hurricane until half paat 10. It displayed its greatest fury with the wind at North, with the Barometer as low as 37? 74". At 11 a m the wind was W. N. W., with bard squalls. At noon the Barometer had risen to 38u 85. The wind still blowing hard from N. \V. and W.N.W. with repeated squalls from these quarters. At 3 p. m the Barometer had risen to 38? 81" with the wind at W. N. W. and West. At 4 p m the wind still blowing in squalls and the Baromoter at 39" 33" the Thermometer again at 80". At 6 p. m the Barometer was at 39? 30". [From the New Orleans Picayune, Oct. 35 ] We are beginning to hear more of the effects of the gale. The ship Silas Holmes arrived yesterday from New Vork. She felt the gale on the 13th inst. and suffered no damage ; but on the 30th saw a ship ashore between Kay West and the Tortugas. The Courier of last evening has the following paragraph in relation to the subject:? "It is the opinion of nautical men ofjndgment and experience, with whom we have conversed, that the late gale or rather tornado did not extend as far as the station of the squadion off'Vera Cruz. It is believed that the great swell, experienced off Brazos Santiago, which prevented the mails fiom being put on board the Oalveston, was caused by that tornado?but very little wind was blowing where the steamer lay. If this be so, Com. Conner's ships were safe from all damage." Since writing tho above we have learned more from Havana. Three French vessels of war lying in that haibor were verv much injured, but it is not said they were positively lost. The American bark Madeline, Capt. Shankland, from this port, was sunk in tho harbor. We do not know whether she had discharged her cargo. The brig P. Soule, Capt. Liclvaille, arrived at Havana on roe i4tn init. irom thu port. safe. The brig Titi, Cent Brown, arrived there on the 8th from thu port Whether the wm injured in the gale we ere not informed. Our informant says that front thirty to fi'.ty vetsela were more or leeeinjured. There it a myttery about thit butineea, but the newt we give hat been in town tlnce Thursday evening. [From the htvmnah Oeorgian, Oct. -J9 ] By the brig Cybelle, Captain Merrill, arrived at thit port, we have advicet from Havana to the !it)tl< init. The recent gale experienced all along thia coatt, wat alto felt with much violence at Havana, and did contiderable injur)-to the city, and to the thipping in port. It wtt one of the mott aevate galea that bat been experienced at that Itland for many yeart pett. To Mr. Weill, the mato of the brig Mohawk, wrecked at Havana in the gale, who came paaaenger in the Cybelle, we are indebted far the following paiticulara :? During the hurricane the city waa dangeroua from large aheeta of lead and tile pot* blown down from the topi of the houaei; theae lay about in every direction, and were in many inatancea, carried by the wind to a great diatance. The beautiful palmetto and other treca which adorned the (iarernoro Square, were broken and torn down, even the lamp posts, fee. The wind waa atrongeat about nine o'clock, at which time it ahifted suddenly to the N. W. and blew with terrific violence. 1 he air waa filled with dense clouds of " spoon drilt" or salt spray, which it was impossible to face This spray waa carried lor half a league into the country and deluged the houaea, entering every crevice and flooding | iiiroK j m auri ami spray *u Man to dash high OTer the lantern of the lighthouse on the Moro Cattle. Many houeea were Mown (town or unroofed, and among them, the Tacon Theatre, which waa partially unrooted, and received other damage. The atreeta were neatly deaerted except by occacional detachmenta of aoldiara, ordered i to dlfferentl poata, to give assistance where it waa needed. The beautiful I'aaaao, the fashionable drive and promenade of the citizens snflered in ita ehruba, treea, plants; and after the hurricane, many were forcibly detained to aaaiat in removing the rubbisn and mint from the atreeta. An occaaional pedestrian might be taen flying fatter than he appeared willing to go, t>orno by the irreaiatible force ot the wind, which kwept through the long narrow alreete with inctediblo force.

It is my painful duty to report to you a dreadful calamity whioh has befallen this place, and every thing connected with the Florida reef so far as heardfrom. The townef Key West is now a heap of ruins. Of | about 400 bouses, large and small, thera is not more than to or 1a leu scanning, or in a naDitaoie condition, and those much ihattored, whilst tha general confusion and distresscaa hardly be realized. On Sunday, llthinst , we were risited with a fearlul hurricane, accompanied with torrents of rain. The gale commenced about 8 A. M., from the northeast, and continued to increase during the day, when at between 3 and 4 P. M-, the wind veered to the southeast, and the storm became a-tornado. At this time commenced a scene which defies description. The houses in town (stone as well as s^iod) were torn piecemeal and scattered away like chaif before the wind, rendering it dangerous to msvo about?which last was indeed impossible, as a foothold could not be maintained ? The wind gradually changed to the south, still blowing with the same strength, and finally to the southwest,abating its fury about 11 P. M. Of courso the sea was driven into the harbor, and against the island with tremendous force The lower part of the town was inundated to the depth of three foot, with a strong current running across it. whilst the public grounds at the southwest point were in a still worse and more espoaed condition. In briof terms, I have to report the total destruction of all the works thus far erected for the construction of the fort. The wharves, bridges, houses, lighters, boats, tools, machinery, and materials, ordnance stores?in ihort, all have been swept away, and mixed up with the general ruin. The streets of the town are barricaded with the timber and debris from the tort?a large amount of which lodged there. Even barbette carriages, hnusketa, and crowbars from the fort are found in the midst of the town. The strip of land or levee along the shore on which the public buildings were placed, being the highest of the public ground, has been completely levelled by the soa. The stable and blacksmith shop only remain,hn a shattered condition, having.been removed from their original position?the former about 'JOO feet, with all the horses and mules in it. five in number, which, with the forage are safo. The large cistern, which was of masonry, founded upon the rock, remained uninjured. Upon this the overseer and several others saved their lives. It being 8unday, very few men were on the ground. Four men who were in the barracks, were lost; a fifth was saved by clinging to the wheel of a 6-pounder, after drifting three hundred yards towards the hospital. pTlie light-house at the southwest point, including keeper's house, has been swept away, leaving not a ves uge 10 mam me spoi wnere n sioou. ai mis place me keeper'* family and friends, 14 persons, perished ; and where Sand Key and it* light honse stood, ia now lett only a ahoal All the vessels in the harbor, tan or twelve brigs and achoonera, have been driven ashore and wrecked, including the revenue cutter; their crewa saved; but as far aa aacertaiued, about thirty-five livea have been loat on the Key. About half the piles of the wharf remain, and a part ef the breakwater of the forte lying below the level of low water, at the anglea But in thia general wreck and loaa of all the property on hand, we are put back to the poai tion where we were nine montha ago. A large quantity of lumber may be recovered, and some tools; pile driver and two scows much injured. At the present time I have turned my attention to the collection of the public property that can be found, and to the erection of a temporary carpenter shop and other fixtures for doing work, and shallprooeed aa aoon as possible to re-establish the wharf. The loss to the Engineer Department cannot be leas than $90,000; that is, it will reqnire that to make us good again, or put us in the same state we were in be. lore the hurricane, supposing that we commence dr novo. No storm like this has been known on the island sinre Its settlement. The water in this^cese rose on the west side of the island aboat three feet higher than known before. It was wholly a wiad tide. Perhaps the department may deem some change In the mode oi construction necessary since this event. On this point I shall submit my views to the department as oon a* possible, and a more full report of the disaster, giving now only this brief outline, to avail of a special messenger about to depart for Charleston. We have just this moment heard from the Tortugas. Garden Key is safe, though the light house is much injured, and small vessels lying there dismasted. The U. 8. brig Perry is wrecked to the eastward. I have the honor to be, respectfully, your obedient servant, GEO. DUTTON, Captain Cngineara. To Col. J. G. Tottcis, Chief Engineer, Washington, D.

Sir i hive the honor to inform the department that I arrived at Havana on the evening of the 7th instant from Cbagres, in the English mail steamer ; and not finding any vessel to sail for any southern port of the United States, I embarked on board the United States brig Terry, and sailed on Saturday the 10th, directing Lieutenant Commandant Blake to land me at Charleston. or any port south of that, from which I could reach Washington without delay. During the night it commenced blowing a gale, and on Sunday it increased to a tremendous hurricane, such as has never before been witnessed in those seas. During the whole day and Sunday night the brig was driven before it at the rate of twelve or thirteen mile* per hour, and no one on board expected her to live from one moment to another. Abont two o'clock on Monday morning, she struck on the Florida Reef, about forty miles east of Key West, a kind Providence directing her to a pert of the reef where the trcmeadons high seas carried her over, atrik ing several times vary hard, a^ breaking the rudder from the stern post. The meaVwere immediately cut away, to prevent the vessel going to pieces, that the lives of those on board might have some chance of being saved. She finally stopped in comparatively smooth water. At day light we found we were within a mile of one of the Baya Honda keys, and several w recks near us. On board of one not half a mile (rom us, twenty lives were lost out of twenty-one One was saved by a boat from the PerTy. On Tuesday two small wreckera came alongside, and Lieutenant Blake employed them to take on board the guns, shot, and other heavy articles, to lighten the brig, in hopes to get her efl', as _u? _i.?

Everything will be saved from the brig, and l think he will be got ofl and taken to Key Wait, and prooebly abe may be got to Norfolk nniler jury masts. The department may reit assured that Lieutenant Blake will do everything ttiat can be done for the intereat of the United Mtatea. It in impoaaible to apeak in too high terma of the noble, cool, and judicioua conduct of Lieutenant Blake, hie ofllcera and men, on thia moat trying occasion; and I am moat happy to etate that no life haa been loet, or any accident kappened to any one on board. Lieutenant Blake will aend a detailed report to the department by the first opportunity. He had not time to aend one by me, aa I did not determine to leave until five minutes before the wrecker left the brig. The deatruction of life and property by thia hurricane ia immenae. Forty or fifty veaaela were known to he on ahore before 1 left; nearly ail the wrecking veaaela are deatreyed; the town at Key Weat ia entirely in ruini; not more than five or aix honaea remain nnuijnred. Of the lighthonaea at Key Weat and Band Key, not a veatige remaina; Bend Key la waahed away, aothat the aea fiowa over it. Fifteen peraona were loat at the lighthouae at Key Weat, and six at that on Band Key. Many other livea were loat in the harbor and town of Key Weat ?

(From the Bermude Gazette, Oct. 201 * By the lateet intelligence from the We*t Indie*,we find that the great etorm which touched Bermuda on the 17th and 18th September, originated to the aouthward of Barbadeee. It Ma from thence been traced to let. 48, long. 37 it. where the Great Weatera iteamihiD met it on the AKh September, the storm's centre having paaied a little to the eastward of St. Johm, Newfoundland, the day before. It ia therefore not improbable that the aame atorm may have touched the Britiah lalanda on the 33d or 34th September. The New York Marine Liil containa accounta of a great many diaaatera to ahipa on tho 19th September, between lat 40 and Newfoundland, being the apace in wh ch thia atorm'a track and that of aliip'a aailhig between Europe and America intersected each other. Mr. Redlleld haa recently puhliahed in the American Journal of Science, a mass of evidence bo great, illustrated by diagrama, in proof that great atorma are vaat progressive whirlwinds, that no more will now be needed to eatakMah this as a fact in meteorology. But it haa coat him the labor of more than 30 years to carry conviction to thr minda ot seamen that the nature of atorma could be thus lar explained. In his recently published paper* he haa proved that some of the norther* on the Mexican coast are in reality West India hurricane* recurving in thw^Julf of Mexico. Thus the atorm which upset H. M. & Kacer to the southward of Jamaica, on the 39th September, 1837, passed over Yucatan on the lat of October, over Matamoraa on the Kio Grande en the 4th, over New Orleans on the 6th, over Charleston, 8. on the 8th, and on the 10th and 11th of October it was again over the ocean, passing on the north side of Bermuda. Other Oulf of Mexico storms Mr. Redlleld suppose* to come from the Pacific Ocean; but the existence of war in Mexico suspends investigation* of this nature in that country for the present We learn that there was no loss of lives at Indian Key or at Key Vacas, in the recent gala. From Matanxas?Intelligence has been received at Havana, lrom Matanzas, which represents the gale to havo been very severe, but not so destrur tire to the (hipping. Although every veisel in port we* driven ashore, taey were got olf without much damage, with the exception of the Nicholas Brown, of Prori deuce, and ichooner General Warren, which are conaidered as totally loit. The latter wai to hare heen (old on the 19th inat. The Atnorican bark .Merlip, Goodhue, which cleared on the 9th for ('owes, waa (till in port, anil waa ono of thoae that drifted ashore.

The report of the superintendent of public schools has not yet been submitted. When received, it will form the subject of a special communication. The report of the national treasurer will exhibit the condition of our public finances, and suggest ths necessity of such legislation as may be deemtd expedient to relieve the nation a* early as practicable from its present emharraaements.

Santa Ft , Sept. 16, lblfl I have just learne.l that the mail for Missouri is to close (a about an hour, and will leave early tomorrow morning, and I cannot allow it to depart without writing a few lines to some of my friends , and as >ou are one whom I have not yet troubled much in tuat way, 1 now take the liberty of doing so. Nothing of importance has occurred, lave the return of the General. and some de predations committed by the Indians on the Mexicans as well as Americans Mr. Davis, of Independence, for one. lost fifteen head of oxen and three mules last night, within twelve miles of this place, but that is not the only loss ; and as it has so receutly transpired, 1 have not been able to arrive at its intent. Th~re have been numerous cases of this kind since our arrival in this place, and it is my opinion that the subjection of the different Indian tribes of this country will be more difficult than the conquest of all the Mexican States would be. However, General Kearney will, no doubt, do his utmost to put a stop to such depredations, hut it will he a costly as well as a hard task to perform. v * ! r?u.( AIUIKJI J,?

Ueneral Kearney, in his recent trip down south, was everywhere well received by the inhabitants, and thore was a continual ieasting and rejoicing during his stay and passage among them. Governor Armijo has left the province, and his bund have all dispersed, so that, save the apprehension of Indians, there is nothing more to fear in these parts. Bradley is crazy to go to California, but cannot got off from his company, and therefore cannot go. We march for California on the 'ioth inst., with a command of 300 regular dragoons.

A copy of Commodore Stewart's declaration and protest against the proceedings of the Board of officer*, recently convened at the city of Washington, in which I took part, has been sent to me. This paper so lully expresses my views and sentiments upon the subjects generally referredato, I beg you will consider me as having concurred in them to the end, that the record may show what I now, although at a late hour, desire to adont bv the appending of this paper to the proceedings, with regai J to the question propounded, " whether promotiona in the navy iliould lie made with exclusive refer enco to leniority.' I anawer the question in a leaa categorical manner than that which the Board, on the first resolution chose to do It in my opinion, and it waa submitted to the board an a suhstitut \ without successor uotice on the record, that recommendations for promotions in the navy should be governed by reference to seniority exclusively, except in extraordinary cases, or where incompetency, guilt or other disqualification shall appear, or other facts be established by which promotions or confirmations would be unsafe and injurious to the public interest. When a want of knowledge oi the character oi an officer, or where a doubt existed as to his professional acquirement presented itself to my mind, I unhesitatingly declined voting, leaving the case ior the decision of the executive aod the evidence on file in the department of the Navy?this determination was in no wise intended disrespectful to ,the department, or the requirements contained in your letter to the board of officers to designate officers for promotion; with the principle of going by seniority, I could not reconcile that of blindly recommending under the rule, or stepping over others, who, absent, could offer nothing in their support ? a rule so just in itself will, I trust, not fall to receive due consideration, and excuse my rocordiDg this my unqualified dissent to tlio course adopted by a majority of the aforesaid board; which, had it permitted the recording of the separate views entertained by its members, would have rendered unnecessary what tome have thought necessary in justification of themselves in this way.

The Ileatrice of Mis M. has also made a great hit. It would ho unfair to omit remarking, that she ia admirably sustained by Mr. Davenport, who is making rapid strides to excellence in his profession. Augusta and the Dimier appear in the ballet, and are received with great enthusiasm. This combination of attraction is filling the Athenaeum nightly with immense audiences. The Keans at the opposition theatre, with Brougham in his Irish afterpieces, are also doing an equally good business In " Ion," " The Wife's Secret," the " Jealous Wife," they have succeeded greatly Kxpectation has been highly raised here in regard to their bringing out " King John," at the Tark Theatre. It cannot fail of having an immense run, if the style of production is to be as described. It has been nrophecied that the theatrical businesa would be overdone here. Strange to say, there are no signs of such a consummation as yet. Tho new Museum, a splendid building, is to open on Monday, and then there will be more drafts still upon the nutilie. THK TRAVELLER.
