The companies advertising in 'he I lolden Unit* are therefore bediming matter* of geueial speculation and inquiry, and He in our turn are often called upon lor our init* or elucidation. In a recent number we attempted lo exhibit the principles upon which the Mutual Companies [rauiact their ahate of this uepaitmeiit ol' business. Wu now propose to allude to the terms and conditions of another coin natty?the National Loan Kund Life Assurance Society of London, whose geueial agent for the United States. Canada, See. is Urn. J. Lennder Starr, of Oriental Lodge. In the liret place the Society is endowrd with an auiple ni-tuil capital.? And here, at a glance, we inay see a leading trait that distinguishes it moat favorably. In emergencies, such u prevailing epidemics, the evident superiority of a bona fide cash capital need nnl be indicated to tboee familiar with llie fluctuations of business. Again, by llie articles of this institution, the usual objection to life insurance is ftilly anew eied.for ill its accommodating terms the situation of the laboring classes of society has met full consideration. However precarious the means of the insured, he cannot sutler material lost In any contingency; nor even temporary iucouveiiienre, for slier a limited period he im> borrow back two-thirds of the premium he has |>aiil, Lad thus reimburse himself almost to the esteut of Ills advances. In this way he makes provision for the present, also, in guarding the future. Certainly no more econotrrral disposition of the proceeds of frugality could be made. The whole complexion of the system is like the Savings B ink operation, with the additional merit of a shield lor survivors against the frequeutly disastrous results of bereavement. '1 hen, again, the payment of entire premiums is not required in advance, hut they may lie divided into semi-) early or quarterly instalments. In addition to these advantages is that of participation in the profits of the enterprise, which is accorded to those who are insured uur life. 'I wo-tliiroe of the profits are aannajtr divided siitoiig these as a bouui, and tlie amount is either paid in money, added to the amount of the policy, or deducted from the ensuing premiums, at the option of the insured. I'art ol the capital of the company is prim niently invested in the I 'uited States, in the names of three of the local directors, is trustees?avail ihle always to the insured in cases of disputed claims, (should any such arise) or otherwise. In view of these considerations it would seem to he the imperative duty ofall who duly appreciate the uncertain tenure if mortal existence, but whose eager affection is too ex| ? -led lor the limits of mortality, to see to it, that those w hom they love do not live in risk of ultimate destitution, (treat is the lazird tint pertains to conjugal, parental, filial and social rel iiious, and great the consequent suspense and anxiety, for tibipntoiia is the march of death. Money expended to lull this uxiiiral restlessness concerning the future is money well expended. Bur w here profit and peace go hand in hand, as w e numbly suggest they may here, it is almost infatuation, it sat least temerity, to t eat lighily a subject of such general interest.

Wool is a universal merchandize ; it finds purchasers in all lie markets of the world, and the stock on hand falling always iliort of the demand, it finds a tale as easily and readily us gold rod silver wares. The establishment, therefore, on a large scale, of a sheep"old, conveniently situated and administered w ith the help of sufficient funds, must necessarily produce excellent results, in if become the source of brilliant profits to those who shall urest their capital in it '1 lie first ami most efficient element of success in inch an enterprise is the riteut, the nature, the situation, and the cheapit ss of the toad on which the slieeidiild is to he placed,as well a? the proper temperature and salubrity of the climate. Westrru Virginia bring generally mountainous, is the counry oest adapted to the breeding of sheep 'lhese animals ove the highland, and thrive in temperate regiona. The clin ite of that part of the American Union is so favorable to the beep, that they are left to graze all the year round without shelter anil almost without care. This life in the open air, ei en during tlir most rigorous winters, not only does not in he least d'giee impair tlie henllh of the animal, but protects hem Irum those co iiagious diseases w liicli iu other places deuroy m a short time the flocks. There is no ezample of such i scourge iu Western Virginia ; there the farmers trust the realtlr of their flocks to the protection of the climate, and t" lie wholesome food winch they tiud on tlie declivities of the mountain!. However, all the lands in Western Virginia ara not equally nlaptnl to tbeestahlislnnent of a large slicepfold. Those must be selected the Soil of which IS rich, and which lie contiguous. Old are not too fir liom water communications to transport tfie wool at a small expense either to the home market or to the e iports for foreign exportation. '1 lie proprietor of an estate of 100,000 acres of land offers it to tapitalisU who would like to put into execution the pp.posed r jri-l. This land is situntril in Logan county. Western Virginia, jetwecii the ttfih and :t8th degrees of North latitude, anil toeesses every advantage required for such au establishment. 1'lie soil is rich and mountainous, with ihe exception of souie I it lands, whirl, will be veiy useful for (lie culm atom of tlie trodnce necessary to the suproit of the shepherd'. The laud s watered by the Saridv.the (iuyandotte and little Cole rivers, ind other stri tins of less importance. The .Sandy is navigable luring i good part of the y ear for flat hosts, and small strammaU during rhe rainy season. The fSuyaudotte, not abound UK in wat? r like the Sandy, is still navigable for canoes dnrng several mo .tlis of the year, and for flat boats when the vaters are higher The Little Cole is also navigable for flat mats and canoes in the tame circumstances. All these three ivers empty tutn the Ohi< , one of the greatest and most imlorlint means of communication in the United States: the tandy and (tuayaiidolie directly, and the Cole through the treat Kanawha river. The title to this proper v is complete and perfect, and the it le documents are deposited in the otfice of 1 heodore Sedgsick, Ksq, Counsellor at Law, 56 Wall street, New York, I kvnrre nicy ran ijc eianniM-d. The plan of the sheepfold, wherein are indicated minutely llttie r*j lines and receipts, points out the reunite of the enerprise.?The data oil whicli the calculations hare beeu bunded aie positive, and e?ery one may very easily verify hem. The plan and the survey of the land are to he found ti the office of Herman ( idiom, Eeq. 45 Wall street. According to thin plan irfis necessary to employ a capital of M50,000, to establish a sheepfold of 120,000 sheep on 100,000 icret ol land. From the first year the capital receives the increase of 6 per entuin, in the course ol the 5th, 6th and 7th years is wholly eimbursed, and nfter this date the owners of the sheepfold re* eive an annual income of S6U.OOO, and will he possessors of ii establishment which will nave s value of.$100,000. Let us dd to these considerations that there is not the least risk in fie enterprise and nothing uncertain in iu results.

()u Friday night, 2Jd of April, I received official information that my bcuelit wiu fixed for the following Friday evening, 30th ol April. Being aware that that was about the wrorat night but one in the whole season, from it* proximity to "mov iiig-day," 1 wrote a request to the management that my benefit shuiihl be postponed, at least, for a week, that my fiieuds might have tome chance to evince their usual kindness. I wim informed hi repjy, that circumstances rendered the immediate li urination of my benelit imperative, hut that I mnrht ih.. . Wednesday, Thursday or Saturday, if i ^referred either, l?? ! the Friday. Taking it for granted that the " circumstance" i could only he the engagement of a alar, 1, to avoid any " luck- ! erings." accepted the Thursday night, and named the Id, till nud #tl? act* of " London Assurance, the novelty of which nt the Olympic, 1 depended mainly upon tor attraction at so unpropitious a season, as others hau depended on three acts of the 1 School for Sc&udnl," the fifth act of " llichard 3d" and the Grot act ofM Sounambula," See. The cast was put up in the green room. It is an absolute rule in the Olympic, uo one in engaged for u particular line of ; business, auu tluit noue can refuse parts but ut the peril of their engagement; which rules 1 will presently illustrate forcitdy. I On Mouday I wa? informed that Mr. Nickinsnn had refused his part, Sir Ilaroourt Courtly, I reterred to the "rules" in vain. I ll-* man igeiiirnt sustained the refusal; :nid IfliQ '< LVOid "bickering," 1 obtained a volunteer Dazzle, ana Mr. Walcot consented to play Sir Hurcourt. The piece was called for rehearsal on Tuesday?when, and not till when?too late to ob tain further auxiliary aid, Mr. Kverard and Mr. G.

Deprived of the only niece which was n feature in my bill?left, at the eleveu'liliour, to worn out stock nieces, and, ns a natural consequence, a comparatively poor house, 1 forbade my name !o be put up on Thursday for a benefit, the lion's share of which wan to accrue to the treasury. Nevertheless, my benefit wan underlined in Wednesday's bill, and I, thereby put to the extra cost (>f advertisements and hills, to inform the public that I had no interest in the night. I refrain from comment, to return to the illustration promised above. For refusing a part in a revived piece, w hich had been originally playd b| uiothor I ><!. while I was in tha company, and/which part 1 had, originally, by courtesy, and the nature of business ida\ ed by me, a l ight to?for refilling to play that part second hand and worn out. and as a stop-gap, the origiiial i*rfora)fi haviug seceded from the compaa). I was e< n* polled to leave the theatre. (though there was another lady in it as capable as the original,) and so to lose in the term of my absence, until I was re-engaged, four hundred dollars; and for what? For doing, with at least a plausible reason, that which I has been sanctioned by the management in three instances, to | my further loss of at least one bundled dollars for share of he- j llfflt, and nearly twenty dollars lor printing mid advertising. i As to the closing of the theatre being in any way attributable j to my benefit uot having taken place, or anything connected w ith if. that is obviously too ridiculous to lireil remark. # One . would he apt to fancy that fact a sufficient reason for its re- ( inniiiirig open. However, it is enough to state that the manager j has hinmell declared through his proper officer, that he closed the theatre simple because it was his pleasure so to do, and it is well known that ne hud eo determined, prior to the prevention of my benefit. Simple facts, uuguhh d and incontrovertible.

Afkln in Washington, Washivgto, May 1,1847 The Ffor, and the Plant and Protpeclt of the War tn <M further jirtiecution, examined. The war with Mexico ia rapidly approximating it* final crisis, whpn it will terminate in a speedy and satlsfatory peace.or deteriorate into a Seminole campaign?a port of hunting down of the remaining armed native* In the mountains, and the road-sides, and among the chaparrals. From all that we can gather of the opinions of the government, the Administration expert (hat Santa Anna has come down from Mexico to this side of the ( ordil , leraa, ostensibly to fight, but with a real design to enter Into negotiations. It is thought that the clergy, to save their church treasures from sequestration, have a distinct understanding with Santa Anna upon this point, and will sustain him in a movement for peace. This may be so. and it will be conclusive of peace if it Is so. If it be otherwise, the American troops are destined to revel in the halls of the Montexumas One very persuasive inducement for the rapidity of the movement of Santa Anna toward the sea-hoard is the protection of his personal estates between K1 Kncerro and Jalapa He has extensive herds of horses, mule*, cattle and sheep on those estates, rattle to the uumbrr of 60.000, itissald; and doubtless is apprehensive that if they come within reach of the American army, thev will fall under Col Benton's Lieutenant Geueral plan of' military contributions'' But no doubt he would be paid as any otherprivato oltisen ; because, the plan of quartering upon the enemy proclaimed by the organ of this Government last summer, as the future system upon wbloh the war would be conducted, lias never been adopted by the generals lu the field; probably, in that they suspected it to be a part of the plan of the Lieutenant General It may be. that In advance ot this despatch, your overland and telegraphic express will bring you intelligence 1 of the decisive overthrow of Santa Anna by (sen Scott, i if, iudeed, the Mexican dictator be *o near to the American army as is represented. The two brigades which he despatched from Han Luis f'otosi for the relief of Vera ('rux. on his leaving Han Luis for the city of Mexico are, it is supposed, a portion of the army of ld.OOQ men represented to bo on the road between I'uerte h'aeianal and Jalapa; their march to Vera ( rus having been Intercepted by the news of it* capitulation A tight between Scott and Santa Anna may bring us to the land mark of negotiations at once, and without further dlfflculty Hence the general anxiety to hear of this anticipated collision in the event of Santa Anna falling hack on the route tn Mexico, and still maintaining a hostile attitude, the co-operation of Gen Taylor will beoome in dispensable to the forward movement of Gen Scott in pursuit of the enemy. Gen. Taylor will find the best route to be the very route taken by Santa Anna across the desert from \gua Nueva to Han Luis Taylor, with his water tanks, (a good number of which he had preoared for the march over the sands to Han Luis, when he was saved that trouble by the disastrous activity of Santa Anna,) but, with his water tanks and caoutchouc bottle*, be will find no difitrully in crossing the blank, fiat, dead, inhospitable waste. Hanked by broken ridge* of sunburnt mountains. lying between lluena Vista and Matehuala, a distance of about I3U miles, on the way to Han Luis, the other liO miles beiug through a region partially supplied with wells, and a lew cornfields Arrived ut Han Luis, at the head of an army of l'i.OOO men, for it is scarcely possible, after leaving the most limited garrisens at Mataworns. < ainargo.
