He j left Elizabethtown New Jersey, the residence of ; his family, yesterday afternoon. Ii ; ft.o> fh. .1 i-~- ?i mission to proceed to Mexico, and take command of the army that is to attack Tampico. We may shortly hear of that place being in possession of our gallant soldiers, who even already | have covered themselves with glory. We understand that the General is to take command ol the seven thousand fresh treops just ordered into the field. With them he is to invest Tampico, and then join General Taylor at San Litis I Potosi, at which* point he will probably assume the command in chief of all the forces in that portion ot Mexico. Seniority of rank will give him the command. These are important military movements, and we may expect that results of great brdliancy and importance will grow out of them. Now is the tinie! "'Up, Guards, and at them!' Thanksgiving Day. We are recommended by the Exeotive of our State to observe this day, the 26th of November, 1S46, as a day of public thanksgiving to the Giver ol all Good,for the manitold blessings it has pleased llim to shower on us during the year which is now drawing to a close. The proclamation is in these words t? ST SILAS VSIOHT, OOTE1HO* Or STATE Or XEW TOXE. The year eighteen hundred and forty-six draws to a close. Its seasons hare been uncommonly propitious, end its harvests are realized. Unusual health h <s blessed our State and country, and the teeming earth h<s ' yielded its abundance to aupply our necessities and minister to our comforts. The wave of pasaion, which, dnring the past year, rolled over some of our counties, has subsided, and internal peace is restored to our citizens, and tranquility to our (besides. The most sublime spectacle connected with civil government is now exhibiting before us. The representatives of the sovereignty of our people, assembled to take In pieces and re-construct the frame work of the State Government, have discharged the high trust, and returned to their constituents, and to their private duties, without havisg excited passion, alarm or apprehension in the community; and our freameu are examining their labors, and preparing to pass a verdict of approbation or r jection upon their work, with a vigilance inspired by a pervading patriotism, and with a calmness and confidence which tree institutions can aiooe impart Not an indi v dual in the State apprehends an encroachment upon his just rights, or ao abridgement of his civil and religious i""1 ??"' p??v?>iu. nwi * wmumi y ioii'iuiiu.i ui his govt i iinieut Sti ongor evidences of high intellectual and * mud morality iu a people cannot be atlorded.

I respectfully recommend Thursday, the 36th day of November next, to be observed as a day of public thanksgiving ; that the people of tho State, abstaining from their ordinary business avocations, may assemble at their usual place* of religious worship, and uniting with each other, and with then fellow-citizens of many ot the other States, may pay their tribute of thanks to the author of these and all tempoiwl and spiritual good gifts, and may pour out their hearts in prayer to Him, that his rich smiles may be continued to our country, and that tl e signal blessings of this year may tie crowned by the termination of our existing war* in an honorable and just pease. In testimony whereof, I have caused the privy aeel of the State to be hereunto affixed. Witness my -. . i hand, at the ' ity of Albany, the nineteenth day 1 J of October, in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and forty-six. By order, SILAS WRIGHTHorace Moodt, Private Secretary. We are pleased to see thia time-honored cuttorn of our ancestors so regularly observed, and hope the day is far distant when it shall cease to be followed. Wc certainly have every reason to be thankful to an overruling Providence for the temporal blessings we enjoy. While famine is desolating the countries of Europe, our own fair luiiuuy is liucu wim an uim is necessary ior our comfort and luxury?our soil is so generous and prolific, that after supplying our own wants, wo can spare sufficient to teed those whose climate and soil are not so propitious as our own. While myriadsof human beings are suffering under tyranny, their bodies and minds in a state ofslavery, the people of the United States stand forth as freemen, governed only by laws of their own making, and fostered and protected by their own free institutions. Surely, if a people ever existed that had reason to be thankful, wo are that people, and while we give t hanks for the blessings that have been vouchsafed to us, we should earnestly endeavor to deserve a continuance of them. We see a .disposition in our people to have the custom of thanksgiving universal, and on the same day throughout the Union. It is appointed the same day this year in eighteen States and one Territory, viz:? New York, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Connecticut, Vermont, Maryland, mole iat na, Ksntucay, I'enntylvanit, New Jerssy, Delaware, Indiana, Ohio, Iowa, lllinoi*. Michigan. Louisiana. Florida, Washingtoa City, Wisconsin llow much more appropriate it would be to have the game day observed for this holy purpose throughout the whole twenty-nine States 1 What a pleasing sight it is now to see the inhabitants of eighteen distinct and separate States, voluntarily set apart the same day for rendering thanks; but how much more pleasant would it be to see all the States of this Union join in it, and to hear the shout of praise ascend from the limits of Maine to the confines of Teias, and from the shores of ihe Atlantic to the prairies of the far west ? T' has been suggested that the President of the I 'ui?ed States rould accomplish this by proclaiming a day of thanksgiving for the whole Union, and that in doing so he would be fallowing the mam of the Immoral Washington. We would bo delighted to have it done, If possible, find see no obstacle in the way. The President is the chief magistrate ot the whole country, and we are satisfied that a proclamation issued by him, appointing a day of thanksgiving to be observed by every State in the Union, would meet a favorable reception. This custom is, we believe, of New England origin, and was commenced by the Puritans in Connecticut and New England. To this day there is no place where it is so religiously observed. It is, however, now almost universal. The h'trdy sons of New England have taken it with them into eve.y State of the Union, and have succeeded in engrafting it on all with whom they came in contact. We hope it will never be abandoned. THe Iiomb.rdiueat of Tabasco. Our gallant litile navy has suffered tome reproach in consequence ofthe unsuccesstul attacks on Alvarado, but wo were satisfied that b? lore the end ot the wur it would retrieve its character, and confer honor on itself and our country.? Our brave tars?officers and men?only wanted j an opportunity, and we were convinoed they I would give a good account of themselves. The failure in taking Alvarado did not occur from want of bravery, but resulted from obstacles that nature placed in the way, and which lire bravest men in the world could not overcome. The natural sandbar at the entrance to that city is a stronger fortification than Mexican batteries, and if it could have been got over the batteries would soon have been silenced. The opportunity lias at last occurred at Tabasco, which place was approached for the purpose of capturing a number of vessels lying there, and also of convincing the Mexicans of what our n ivy could do. The result is before our renders The city was bombarded, and the firing only censed when a flag of truce came from the shore beKging of the Commodore to spare it. This was granted, and the firing ceased. The main object, however, for which the enterprise was comWt a 1-1 Oa. 1 Itraa fil ll,? no li ia<r.wl Vs? ?Un ?4 ?Ua iiiciivou, r* ao tuiijr tttuiovc vx ujr mo uajjiuiuui mo fleet of craft that remained there in fancied security, consisting of one brig, five schooners, two I steamers, and many small craft and lighters, all of which were taken away, except one that got aground and was burned to prevent its getting into the enemy's hanus This gallant little affair shows the materiel of our navy. All they want is opportunity, and we repeat that before the war is ended, the army will not be alone in earning laurels. The next step that ought to be taken is the capture of Alvarado. The two failures in taking it, have taspired the Mexicans with the idea that they are indomitable, and have no doubt constituted a great deal towards making the war so popular with the body of the people as it is. We must undeceive them as soon as possible, and prove farther, that notwithstanding their sand-bar, we can take that city. We are delighted at this success of our navy. We are intimate with many of the officers, and judging all, by those we know, there is not a braver set of fellows in the world. Every one of them would die sooner than disgrace his flag by any act of coward'ce. We sincerely condoled with them m the Alvarado atlair, because we knew how much mortified they lelt. Both the army and navy have their country's honor entrusted to their care, and in the hands oi either we are satisfied it is safe, and will receive no tarnish. New Packet Ships.?In consequence of tho storm, the launch of the Sir Kobert Peel, which was to have taken place yesterday, was postponed until half past 2 o'clock this day. The splendid ship Admiral was yesterday thrown open lor the inspection of susli as chose to pay her a visit, and, although it continued to rain all day, she entertained quite a respectable ' number ol visitors. Her cabins are fitted up in a most superb and costly, yet chaste style, wiili all the modern im- j provemcnts, bathing rooms, lie.; so that a person taking passage in her will have every comlort he could enjoy at one of our best hotels. Her cabin, we should judge, is about fifty feet long> with ample accommodations for forty passengers; and each state-room is almost as large as an ordinary bed-room, She was to have sailed tomorrow, but is detained until Saturday, when she will take her departure for Havre, under the command of Captain James A. Wotton. Fair winds and successful voyages to the Admiral and her gallant captain! J*ew packet ships seem to increase almost as rap.dly as new States and Territories. Orta Louisville Exchanoks ? If our Lauisvillc exchanges desire to be made acquainted with the reason of their not receiving the Herald, with the Britannia's news, they had better write to Cave Johnson. It was no fault ot ours that the Herald did Hot reach them in time.

The liondurai Ubtrrver ol the 17th is filled with a report of the case, but the result was not known, the jury being still out when the paper went to press. Tbe brig Matilda. Jenkins, which sailed from New York about the 1st of September, had not been heard of. The brig Veuus, from Boston, airiveJ at Belize, experienced a hurricane on the J9th ult., and lost the cook and deck load overboard. Tbe brig Robert Bruce, from New York, also (.uttered in the same hurricane, and lost the cook overboard.

Camillo Sivoai.?To-morrow evening the master violinist of the age gives his concert at the Tabernacle. In looking over the programme of the musical entertainment, we cannot but be surpried at the variety of talent that he has secured for his assistance. Signora Pico, Mrs. Loder, Julia Northall, Signor De Begnis, Rapetti, Kontaua, Timm and Loder, besides a moat excellent orchestra, are all engaged to appear; and the inimitable Hivori himself, will perform four of his favorite airs. In the Brst place he will perform Bpohr's celebrated Concerto ("sccna cantaute"); besides a duet with M. Rapetti; then we are to have the "Prayer of Meaes,'' executed upon a single string; and the sweet variations on "Net t or " We cannot omit noticing that the orchestra will perform the "Overture to Zaire," which, on its first production in London, was encored three times in succession. De Begnis, Pico and Julia Northall, will sing a teraetto from the "Fanatico " On the whole we consular the bill as the moat attractive of any offered this season. laitH K.sninos?Mr. Lover gave one of his delightful entertainments last evening at Palmo's opera house. And notwithstanding the extremely unfavorable state of the weather, the audience was quite respectable in numbers, amounting to some three hundreX This is a compliment which that gentleman has avery reason to be proud of. for we do not believe that ao many fashionable and respectable people conld be enticed to leave their homes in such weather, on any other occasion As nsnal, he amused his auditory with anecdotes illustrating Pat's peculiarities, which he related in nis own admirable manner. He also sung several of his own pathetic and touching songs, and we envy not the possessor of the heart that did not beat in sympathy with the fl.herman's wife in that beautiful song "The Angel's Whisper." This song made a deep impreaeion on all present, and was sung a second time in obedience to the expressed wish of the audience. We admire the spirit of patriotism that pervades Mr. Lover's enteitainmenu. It shows that he feels himself an Irishman, and delights in anatomising the characteristics of his Countryman, and exhibiting, for tha admiration of all present, the intricacies, inconsistencies and predominant good qualities of which they are composed Political Intelligence.

No piece bai ever been pnt upon the stage in America, with such a liberal expenditure, and witn so strong a cast. Of Mr and Mrs. Kean'a acting, we have often spoken before, but the famous personification of the base-hearted King, and the letter's portrayal of the wo and egony of Constance, are the triumphs of artistical performance. The mechanical portions of the play, with respect to the scenery and properties, are now so admirably arranged that all pusses off with but little delay, no more than is needed for the mind to rest from the intense interest excited by the rapid progress of stirring events as thev occur in this admirable tragedy. This being a holiday nigbt, we expeet to see Old Drury crowded with a moat biilliant audience.

The tricks of the monkey and the poney in the ring are amusing and well performed. City Intelligence. Evacuation Bay,?The weather, yesterday, which was stormy throughout the day, interfered so as to prevent the usual celebration of the above national anniver sary. The military, from an early hour, were fully accoutred and prepared, in conformity with the general : order from head quarters, to turn out en maste, but the order was countermanded, and neither parade nor pro- I cession took place. The day continued wet and stormy ! throughout At noon, however, a detachment of the lltn { Regiment, formed a battery of three pieces and caissons, | ana Bred a national salute from the Battery, in honor of j the day and the occasion. Colonel Yates acted ss Cap- ; tain, Lieutenant Colonel Sheldon and Major Ferris as I Lieutenants, ana i upturns union, siioernorn ana Starr as Sergeants. A salute was also fired at noon ia the Arse- > nal Yard; and this constituted the entire demonstration 1 on the part of the military, who were kept at home in consequence of the inclemency of the weather.

The one owned by j Aldorman Stoneall stood at-j7 18, at s o'clock, The show, about 8 o'clock, fell heavily, and in some parts of the city was upwards of four inches deep. The snow starm made ; a very respectable deftuf for the winter season ; and this 1 (its first visit) will remind us to be on the oiti vivr for the i next few months. At 11 o'clock last night, the wind changed to the north, end at 12. it was clear and frosty, J being the first real winter night we have had this season.

Hon Hie Outrage ?Quite an interesting girl. 13 years of age. was brought into the Oth ward atation hoose last night,by one of the policemen, whom he found in the ! street crying, and when brought before assistant Captain Ley den, (he told the following story:?She said her name was Ann Barry; her mother was dead, and her father was some where in the city, but she was unable to find him She further stated, that in the fore part of the evening, as she was crjing along the 21 avenue, she was met by a man who enticed her into an unfinished building, under pretence of giving her some candy, instead of which he committed a brutal outrage upon her perron, and then made his escape. The poor girl has been taken care of, and means have been instituted to procure the arrest of the offender. Movements of Travellers.

Tiik Gai-k on the Lakes.?The gale on Lake Ontario was very severe. The Hocketter Democrat i says The gale on Thursday night appears to have ! been unusually destructive on Lake Ontario. We mentioned ou Saturday the wreck of the schooner Wm. Merritt, of St Catharines, which was blown high and dry i upon Braddock's Point. The schooner Missouri, of Sackctts Harbor, on her wuy down from Toledo, with 6000 bushels wheat, consigned to Oswego, was stranded on the same point during ' the gale. On Saturday afternoon she had Ave feet water in bar .hold. About 2000 bushels of wheat will probably be saved, and the vessel will bo got off, if the cargo is removed before the sutf has time to injure her timbers. The schooner Western, of Oswsge, bound for Cleveland, with 160 bairels salt, was diiven on the sandbar at Irondeuueit, andia now a total wreck. The crews in all these disasters, were saved. All the vessels were insurer There was a rapoit in town on Saturday, that eighteen r twenty vessels were standsd on the shore between this place and the entrance of Niagara. We presume this is an exaggeration. The Buffalo Commercial of Tuesday says From Mr. Davenport, mate of the steamer Niagara, which left Chicago on the 14th, we loarn the following Brig EmRno. left rhicago the <1 ly previous for Southport, to 1 >ad : steamer Hendrik Hudson, Propeller Uenasee ! Chief, and brig Clarion, at Milwankia, hound up; steamer i A. D. Patchin, at Beaver Island, hound np; steamer Nile, near Point au Barks, bound up; steamer Boston, at Bar ] Peiat, bound np. The Buffalo Commercial of Monday evening addi:-]n addition to the account publithed by ui on Saturday, of vessels wrerked and injured in the late gale, we learn that the aehooner Racine was driven ashore two miles this side of Madison. She was bound up, with nisrcban disc, shipped at Oswego by Bronson and Crocker, Fitzhugh Is Co., H. C. Wright, Brewster, Wiman Is Co., B. Isaacs Is Co., and DoolitUe Is Co. The Harwich, of Cleveland, is ashore at Ripley, 7 miles above Barcelona. The Pints, between ti.is and F.rie. The vetsela ashore et trie, on the Peninsula, are the Ainsworth, United States, Dayton and Charles Huwurd. These vessels will probably be got oil without much damage. The brig H. H. Sizer end schooner Huron are both total wrecks. The steamer Commerce, Capt. Traverse, came in about > o'clock Sunday afternoon, from Dunkirk, where sho lay | during the gale. From Capt. T. we learn that the Indian : Queen ia ashore about a mile this side of Dunkirk, on the 1 rocks, and is a perfect wreck. The latest accounts from BufTalo say that the gale was the most severe between Cleveland and BufTalo. The following ia an extract from a letter to the editor* of the R Icheater Democrat; it is from t gentleman who was a 1 passenger in the steamboat Helen Strong, and dated, . Wbstfiei.d, Nov. 90. We have (just escaped one of the* most dreadful ship i wrecks ever known on Lake Erie. We left Buffalo on | Thursday, about 11 o'olook. with about 70 passengers on t board, end proceeded up the lake within about 90 miles wi r,iie, wmi ?uuu|; .iuiui-wcpi wnia, mo ?v? running i very high.

On Lake Ontario the lose war great, besides what we haTe above mentioned. Canadian schooner William Mer. ritt was high and dry on Braddock's Point, at the last acI counts. The schooner Missouri, of Beckett's Harbor, I with a full cargo ef wheat for Oswego, wa* ashore on I the same point The schooner Western, of Oswego, ' with salt, was wrecked on Irondequoit bar.

An awful murder was committed on the night of the 30th, says the Penntylranian, across the Lehigh river, in a small town called Williamsport. An Irishman bv the name of Lawrence Turnov, lived with hie wife in a frame hantee on the banks of the Delaware Canal, and they bnvo often he?n heard to quarrel and fight with each other. This mprning, abont daylight, Mra. Turney was found naked and dead, in front of her house, her skull fractuied and broken, and her body half roasted or burned. It was. indeed, a most horrid sight Her clothes had all baen burned ofT her body, and lay scatterod in the street Her husband was found on a miserable bed in the house, having locked and barred himself in, so that the officer of justice was obliged to break in the window to arrest him. The body evidently looked as though she had been first killed, and then thrown on the fire with the intention ot burning her up. A coroner's inquest was held, and a verdict rendered in accordance with the facts. Th# Boitnn Whig of Monday says; " We feel authorised to say that the state of Mr. Adams is decidedly improving His medical adviser spoke last evening more favorably of his recovery than he has done at any moment before."

The noise occasioned by the fall alarmed the watchman, and brought him to the cell immediately, when measures were taken to keep a strict watch over the prisoner, and prevent any farther attempt on his life. We are told that this wretched man is in a most frightful state of mind. He is continually haunted by the apparition of his murdered wife, who is ever before him?her gashed threat, with the hleod streaming from it, staring him in the face ; and he begs fer his immediate execution.?

The deposits and the circulation or the city Panics snow an increase, the former of $l.lilti62, and the letter of $19*2.637, while the conntry hanks shew a decrease in deposits and specie, and an increase in discounts and circulation. The discounts of the city banks have, within the last quarter, fallen oft' $1,254 095. and those of the country banks have increased $4,729,957. The increase of the circulation of the banks of this 8tate at this season of the year, is caused by the large sums paid to the farmers for their produce en its way to market From the 1st of Mty to the let of September, the circulation of the banks oithar decreases or remains steady. After tke 1st of September large sums are furnished by the interior banks to the persons engaged in the purchase ef wheat and leur, beef, wool, butter, and cheese, upon drafts (at short time) of these persons- on their consignees in New York and Boston. These sums are paidout to the farmers of our own State, and large amounts ef money are also sent to the States of Ohio, Michigan, Illinois, and Wisconsin, the three last of which have no banks of their own, and rely almost entirely upon the banks of this State for currency. The demand from the bank* fer currency at this season of the year is entirely beyond their ability to supply, and large sums are daily purchased in Wall street at from 30 to 40 cents discount upon the hundred dollars, and are sent to Rochester, Buffalo, Oswego, and also to the Western States, fer the purpose of supplying the deficiency in currency at thos places. This demand for currency continues until the navigation closes. From that time until April er May, the notes of the banks of this State return for redemp- . tion in large sums, being remitted by the Western mer" chants (into whose hands they pass from the tamers) to the eity of New York, kc. The expansion at this season of the yea is not speculative on the part of the banks, but grows out of the exigencies of trade solely, and is based upon the produce of the country, principally the market in New York or Bos-on ; and the diminution or contraction of the currency, after the close of navigation, follows as regularly and niturollyaathe ebb of the tide succeeds to its flow.
