[From the Charleston Courier. May 8 ] The Hon. Daniel Webster arrived in this city, yesterday morning, by the Wilmington boat, and took lodgings at the Charleston Hotel At 13 o'clock. M., he was waited on. there, by the Committee of Reception, consisting of the the following gentlemen, vis:?Hon. F II Elmore. Hon. D. E. Huger. James L. Petigru, Hon. William Aiken. H. A. Desaussure. Henry Gourdin. J. B Campbell, Hon. Fran. K. Huger, B. F. Hunt, J.B. Lcgaru. R. Yeadon. Hon. John 8. Ashe. I. W. Hayue. Dr John B. Irving. Alexander Black The Committee led Mr. Webster into the spacious piazza or balcouy of (the hotel, which was thronged with ladiea and citizens, gathered, (as was also a large crowd of citizens in the street fronting tho Hotel,) to give the distinguished guest a hearty welcome to the hospitalities of Charleston. Mr. Webster took his position In the centre ofthe balcony. Immediately fronting the street, und was there uddressed as follows by the (Ion. Franklin H. Elmore, Chairman of the Committee or Reception: Wr. Webster, in a clear, commanding and full toned voice, responded as follows:? Ucktlzmc!)?It would bo an act of as great violence to my own feelings, as of Injustice and iugratltudu to the hospitality ofthe citizens of Charleston. If I should fail to express my cordial thauks for the welcome you give me in their behalf, and to reclnroeatu. to von and to them, my sincere respects ami good wished. You are quite right, gentlemen, in supposing that my purport, in undertaking the tour which has brought me into the midst of you. is to see the country and the people of the country, and to obtain a better and fuller knowledge of both. Hitherto. I" have not been a visiter so far South: and I was unwilling, quite unwilling, to be longer a stranger, personally, in the Southern States. The cltlsens of Charleston do me an honor, which I most deeply feel, when they say, through you. that they have satisfaction in meeting me at their own homes, and wish to render my visit agreeable. When one is mndc welcome to the homes of ('hurleston, I am quite aware that the warmth of hospitality ran go no further. Undoubtedly, gentlemen, differences of opinion on many subjects exist between your fellow-cltixens and myself, and between South Carolina and Massachusetts. But how poor must be that spirit, a spirit which I ain sure prevails neither here nor in Massachusetts, which, out of these differences, would extract cause of social alienation, or personal disrespect? What would be the value of our |>olitiruI institutions, if men might not differ on polictieal questions, without sacrificing mutual esteem or drowning the sejssc of common brotherhood.' We have divers political sentiments, hut we have hut one country; we may differ as to the best manner of serving and honoring that country, but we agree that she is to be served by all to the utmost of their power, and honored by all with flnul reverence and patriotic devotion If we do notaiways'think alike.we all feel alike; we feel that much of the individual happiness.as well as the national renown, which belongs to us now, or may belong to us hereafter, does and will attach to us, as the undivided, and I hope always the indivisible, members of the great American Republic. I am happy, gentlemen, if you think that, while discharging tbo duties of Secretary of State. I paid just regard to the protection of Southern intereets. In my judgment, those interests, important In themselves, were connected with grave questions of public law. questions touching the immunity of flags, and the independence and equality of nations upon the ocean. To the magnitude of thesl questions I could not be lneenslble. It U true that they commanded my utmost attention; and if the result has been greater freedom from annoyance, more security for maritime rights, and a general advance iu me maintenance or peace, anil me irtcnaiv intercourse of nutions, I am bound to ascribe this result rather to the concurrence of fortunate circumstances, aud to the encouragement and support of others, than to any ability displayed by my efforts. I concur with you cordially, gentlemen, In the sentiment, that mutual intercourse strengthens mutual regard; and that the more citizens of different parts of the country soo of one another, the more will asperities be softened, and differences reconciled. I may undertake to say. for Massachusetts, that she is ready, at all times, to meet, and to return, the respect and tne hospitality of South Carolina; and that she remembers ancient tirs of union and fraternity; that sho acknowledges a common interest, and a common fate, in a common country; that there is, no where else, a justcr or a higher appreciation of the men. or the deeds, of this her sister State; and no where the prevalence of more earnest wishes, for whatever may advance her prosperity and distinction. J^ticnTLEMKN?I come among you, with my family, as travellers, but not feeling that wo are entirely strangors. I wish to attract no ostentatious notice, but desire only to be regarded as a fellow countryman and fellow citizeu, and see the country and the people without formality or constraint. Thanking you, and the oltizens of Charleston, again, for the cordial welcome extended to me "it remains that I offer you, gentlemen, personally, my high regard; and to this concourse of your fellow citizens, which surrounds ub, and whose assembling together, on this occasion, I regard as so respectful, aud so Imperatively demanding my grateful acknowledgments, I must tender my sincere respects. Citizens of Charleston! I am happy to regard Jou as countrymen?we are born to the sume inlieriincc. won bv'the same patriotism, and the same valor New Knglund blood has moistened the soil where we now stand, shed as roadily as at Lexington, or Concord, or Dunkerhill. May it prove a durable cement of the Union of our respective Htatcs ! And many generations, oow far off, find themselves, when they arrive, as we now find ourselves, a free, respectable, united and prosperous community ! I pray you, gentlemen, accept my sincere good wishes for you all. Sporting Intelligence. ' There was some fine sport over the Union Course yesterday afternoon, as can be fully testified by the respectable concourse of persons who witnessed it. The first purse offered was for trotting horses, mile heats, host three In five, to go in wagons- driver and wagon to weigh three hundred pounds. The animals entered were Jack Cade, Jim Berry, Lady Kllen and Philadelphia Snl ?the three latter of whom. It will he recollected, had the remarkable context of sovrn heats over the name ground, last Monday week. The trio exerted themselves on this occasion, nut were unable to keep time with the inuslc of Jack Cade, who trotted off with the money in three straight heatx. The second match wax between those fine pacers, Village Boy and Hoauoke. and a new horse under the cogmen of (Jen. Taylor?mile heats, best three in Ave. under tho saddle. Jloanoke won the first mile in 2.'25, and the second in'2.27; (Jen. Taylor got the third mile in J.26; but ltoanokc wax again successful in tho fourth utile, in 2.'26>s?thus winning the purse. With the exception of that made by James K. Polk, this is equal to the best time upon record, and when it is taken into consideration that (Jen. Taylor is whnt may be termed a "green horse," his time of J.'26, yesterday, shows that he may eventually become "ripe" enough to "do brown" some more experienced animals. Indeed, he may bo competent to get over his mile in '2.23, and thus become a "professor of Polk-aixm.'' and bo enabled to enter the lists for the championship with even the nimble "Captain" himself. It is understood that these nags will again come together in a short time, for a purse which will be especially offered for their benefit, as well as for the accommodation of any others who may wish to "comu In"?always excepting Captain Polk, wno is entirely too "good lookin" " to get in yet awhile. Police Intelligence. Mav 11.?Charge of J-'alit Pretencei.?Officer Burley. one of the valuable men attached at the lower police, arrested yesterday,a man by the nameof Wm O'Conner, on a warrant issued by Jnstice Drinker, wherein he stands charged with having obtained between $400 and $.'>00 from Jeromiah Jackson, broker. No. 71 Wall street, by false and fraudulent representations. It appears that O'Conner represented to Mr. Jaekson that lie was the owner of somo ftOO.OOO acres of land in Virginia, which land ho would place In the hands of Jackson to sell, and further stated that it would be necessary for hira, O'Connor, to go on to Virginia, in order to settle up some chancery business, and pay various expenses. Kor this purpose Mr. Jackson advanoed the above sum of money. Mr. Jackson was authorised to sell the land in the absence of O'Connor at tho South. Subsequently, however, it was ascertained that the land wnx not owned by O'Conner. but by a Mr. James M*( all,of Philadelphia; consequently the sale effected by Mr. Jaekson of tho aforesaid property, was null ami void, and the money thus advaneed by Mr. J. Is said to have been obtained by lalae and fraudulent representations. The case is now under Investigation before the above magistrate. Stealing a Mare.?Officer Relyea. of the Lower Police, arrested, yesterday, a man ly the name of John McChryxtal. on a charge of stealing a bay mare, valned at $'2S, from the stable of Dennis McLaughlin, residing at No. 3 llester street. Justice Osborne locked the accused up for examination. Jtrrml of a {'onriet.?Officer Seofleld, of the 17th ward, arrested, yesterday, a woman called Jane Hmlth, an escaped convict from Blackwell's Island Justice Ketcham sent her back to finish her term of sentence. Petit Laraany.?Officer Hoffman, of the Ifith wnrd. arrested, yesterday, a woman called Catherine Mcdoe, for stealing a calico dress and dipper, belonging to Cornelius Westervelt, No. 273 West lfith street. Locked up lor trial. I'HW Intelligence, Judicial Nom.vation.,?Pursuant to anotlsewhlch appeared In some of the paper*, about twenty of tho Junior mcmberi of the bar assembled in the Vice Chancellor* room yesterday afternoon, to hear the report of the committee appointed at a previous meeting to nominate Judge* for tlii* diatrict. Much opposition wa* manifested to tho report, especially to the name of Mr. Hirain Ketehain, who wa* rejected. The preaent circuit Judge wa* nominated in hi* atead, but the rote upon hia nomination stood 10 to 0. A reconsideration wa* then moved by one of the committee, who stated that himself and other* had changed their minds, and were desirous of the nomination of Judge Kdmonda; but the chair decided that the motion was out of order. Much confusion thereupon ensued, and the whole matter was then referred back to the committee, to report at a future meeting. Another Anti-Hkmt Oijtrao*.?We have before us the affidavit of Hiram Wheeler, of Taehkanie, giving the particulars of an assault upon his house, on Saturday night last, about 12 o'clock, by a band of desperadoes who fired four halls Into the house, one of which entered the room where said Wheeler and wife slept, and which would have tilt one of them if it had not hit the cross bar of a loom standing in tho room Two balls were fired in the direotlon of the bod where ho had usually slept until tho past week, when ho was induced to change by the threats made against him.

(.'amp near Chihuahua. Mexico. March 3,1817. > To Col. A.W. DoNiniA*, Commanding Jlmtrican t'orcm in the State of Chihuahua :? Sir?1 have the honor to report, that agreeably to your instructions, I left the camp near Sans, on thu morning of the 38th ult.. accompanied by my Adjutant. Lieut. L. I). Walker, und non-commissioned staff, and proceeded in advance to a position commanding a full view of the enemy's ramp and entrenchments, situated about four miles distant from this point The enemy was discovered to be in force, awaiting our approach, haviug occupied the ridge and neighboring heights about Sacramento. I'pon examination, it was ascertained that his entrenchmonts and redoubts occupied the brow ot an elevation extending across the ridge between the Airoyo Seco and that of Sacramento? both of which, at this point, cross the valley from the elevated ridge of mountains in the rear of the village of Torreon. known by the name of the Sierra do Vietorianto, that of Norntireo de Dins on the rnst. and through which runs the Rio del N'ombreo do l)ios. This valley it about four miles u wiuiu, >nu enireucueu ny me enemy entirely across trom mountain to mountain, the road to the city of Chihuahua running directly through it* centre?and of necessity panning near to, and crossing the Klo Sacramento at the Kancho Sacramento, a strongly hutlt and fortified house, with adjoining corrals. and at other encloaurea, belonging to Angel Trio*, the ( overnor of Chihuahua. Krom observation. it won ascertained that the enemy hud occupied the site between these hills, and that the batteries upon them were supported by infantry?his cavalry being in advanced positions, formed into three columns, between the Arroyo Seen and our advance. During these observations, the enemy's advanced guard discovering iny party, approached rupidly, with the evident intention of intercepting it, but being met by that of our troops which 1 had sent forward, it as rapidly retreated. At this time, also, the three columns of the enemy's cavalry re-crossed the Arroyo Seco, and retired behind their entrenchments. I then approaehed within six hundred yards of the most advanced redoubt, from which point the enemy's formation was plainly discernible. The entrenchments consisted of a line with intervals composed of circular redoubts, front three to live hundred yards interval, with entrunchments between each, covering butteries purtly masked by cavalry. Tbe redoubt nearest to iny position. contained two pieces of cannon, supported by several hundred infantry. The enemy's right and left were strong positions?the Cerro Krijoics on his right, aud having high precipitous sides, with a redoubt commanding the surrounding country, and the pass leading towards Chihuahua, through the Arroyo Hero. The Cerro Sacramento on his left, consisting of spile of Immense volcanic rocks, surmounted by a battery, commanded the maiu road to Chihuahua, leading directly in front of tlie enemy's entrenchments; crossing the itio Sacramento at the rancho, directly under its Ore. and also commanding the road from l'erreon, immediately in ii s rear, the crossing of the main road over the ArroyaScco, at the point from which my recounoissance was made, laid directly under the Ore of the batteries on the onemy's right, which rendered it necessary to ascertaiu the practicability of a route more distant from the enemy's entrenchments. The passage was found to be practicable, with some little labor, and a point selected as the best for the passage of the artillery and wagons, and merchant trains. The whole point of the enemy's lineof entrenchments appeared to he about two miles,and his.force 3000 moti. The artillery being masked, the number and calibre of the cannon could not be estimated. Kurt her, I have tho honor to report, that the battalion of artillery under my command, composed of 110 men, and seven officers, with a battery of six pieces of artillery, were, on the morning of tbe battle, directed to forui under tbe direction of Captain Welghtman, between the two columns of merohnnts'and provision wagons; being thus masked from the view of tho enemy In this esiumn my troops continued the march to within fifteen honored yards of the enemy s most advanced position; our direction was then changed to tbe right.snd tho column having crossed the Arroyo Seco without reach of the enemy's fire, rapidly advanced towards the table land between the Seco nnd Sacramento. At this time the enemy was perceived advancing from his entrenchments, to prevent our scixii upon the heigtits, hut by a rapid movement of the bat cry it was quickly drawn from its mask, and seizinir udoii a favorable position, protected in the rear by a mask, from the attack of a large body of the enemy.'* cavalry ascertained to be hanking on our rear, It was formed and at once opened fire upon the enemy '* cavalry rapidly advancing upon u* At this time hi* charging column was about MOO yards distant, and tho effect of our strap ahot and shells wo* such a? to break hi* ranks, and throw hla cavalry into confusion. The enemy now rapidly deployed into line, bringing up hi* artillery from the entrenchments. During thla timo our line wa* preparing for a charge?my artillery advancing by hand and firing. The enemy now opened a heavy fire of oannon upon our line, mainly directed upon the batterv, with little effect. Lieutenant Dorn had his horse ahot under him by a nine pound ball, at tbi* stage of the action, and several mule* and oxen in the merchant wagon*, in our rear, were wounded or killed, which, however, was the only damage done.? The fire or our cannon at this time had such good effect as to dismount one of the enemy'* pieces, and completely to disperse his cavalry and drive him from his position, forcing hiin to again retire behind hi* entrenchments Kor a short time, the firing on either side now ceased, nnd tho enemy appeared to be removing his cannon and wounded, whilst our line prepared to ehangn our position, and move towards the right, for the purpose of occupying a more advantageous ground. Our object being soon gained, the order to advance wa* given, and Immediately after I was dlreeted^o send the section of howttxer* to support a charge upon the enemy's left.

From this point tho battery mured to C, took possession of it, and opening a flrn on the battery of the enemy at B, soon silenced It. Within 60 yards of D, the howitiers opened between the entrenchments, firing to the right and left. M.?Position occupied by party reoonnolterlng the enemy's Hue, immediately previous to the opening of the action. N.?American's first position, from which the artillery opened upon the enemy's chsrglng column at O, after which, the dud position was taken, and the general chase made. mountain howitsers, mounted upon carriages constructed especially for field prairie service and drawu by two horses each. These were commanded by Lieuts. K. F. Chouteau and H. I). Kvans. and mnnncd by some twenty men,whose conduct in this action cannot be too much 1 commended. Capt. Weight man charged ut full gallop upon the enemy's left, preceded by ( apt. Keid and his company of horse, and after crossing a ravine some hundred ami fifty yards from the enemy, he unlimberedthe guns within fifty yards of the entrenchment, nnd opened a destructive Are of canister into his ranks, which was warmly returned, but without effect. Capt. Weightman ngaiu advanced upon the entrenchments, passing through it in the face of the enemy, and within a few feet of the ditches: and In the midst of cross-fires from three directions, again opened his fire to the right and left with such effect. that with the formidable charge of tho cavalry und dismounted men of your own regiment und Lieut. Col. Mitchell's escort, the enemy were driven from tho breastworks on our right in great 'confusion. At this time, under a heavy cross tire from"the battery of four six-pounders, under 1.louts Dorn, Kribbon and I.aheaume, upon the enemy's right, supported by Major Gilpin on the left, and the wagon train escorted by two companies of infantry under ( aptnins K. F. (ilasgow and Skiilman in the rear. Major Oiljiin charged upon the enemy's centre and forced him from his entrenchments under a henvi Arc of artilitfhy and small arms. At tho sntne time the fire of our own battery was opened upon the enemy's extreme right, from which a continued tire had been kept up upon our line and tho wagon train. Two of the enemy 'a guns were now soon dismounted on their right, that battery silenced and the eneiny dislodged from the redoubt ou the Cerro Frijoles I'orclvlng u body of lancers forming, for the purpose nf outflanking our left, and attacking the merchant train under ( apt. (ilasgow, I again opened upon them a very destructive fire of grape and spherical case shot, which soon cleaned the left of our line. The enemy vacating his entrenchments and deserting his guns, was hotly pursucd'towards the mountains beyond Cerro Frijoles, and down Arroyo Heco la Sacramento, by both wings of the nrmy under I.lent Colonel Mitchell, lAeut. Colonel Jackson and Major Gilpin, and by ('apt. Wciglitman. with the section of howitzers. During this pursuit my officers repeatedly opened their fires upon tin- retreating enemy with great effect. To cover thin (light of the enemy's forces from the entrenched camp, the heaviest of his cannon had been taken from the entrenchments to the Cerro Sacramento, nnd a heavy (ire opened upon our pursuing forces and the wagons following In the renr To silence this battery. I had the honor to anticipate your order to ttint effect by at once occupying the nearest of the enemy's entrenchments. 1 J'iH yards distant, and notwithstanding the elevated position ofthe Mexican battery, giving him a plunging tire into my entrenchment, which was not defiladed, and the greater range of his long nine-pounders, the first tire of our guns dismounted fine of his largest pieces, and the fire was kept up witli such briskness and precision of aim that the battery was soon silenced and the enemy seen precipitately retreating The fire was then continued upon the Knncho Sacramento, and the enemy's ammunition and wagon train retreating upon the road to Chihuahua. I)y their fire the house and several wagons were rendered untenable and useless Ily this time Lieut. Col. Mitchell had scaled the hill, followed by the section of howitzers under ( apt. Weightinan, and tho last position of the Mexican forces was taken possession of by our troops; thus leaving the American forces masters of the field. Having silenced the lire from Cerro Sacramento, one battery was removed into the plain at the rnncho where we gained the road, and were in pursuit of the enemy when I received your order to return and encamp within the enemy's entrenchments for the night. From the time of first opening my fire upon the Mexican cavalry, to the cessation of the firing upon the raneho and battery of Sacramento, was about three hours, and during the whole time of the action. I take the utmost pleasure in stating that every officer and mau of iny command did his duty with cheerfulness, coolness and precision, which Is sufficiently shown by the admirable effect produced by their ffre. the great accuracy of their aim. their expedition and ingenuity in supplying deficiencies in the field during the action, and the prompt management of their pieces - rendered still more remarkable from the fact that I had. during tiie fight, less than two-thirds the number of rannonlers generally required for the crvice of light artillery, and but four ofthe twelve si illery carriages belonging to my battery harnessed witli hor?es, the remaining eight carriages being hurnessed to mules of tint country. During the day my staff were of the greatest service- Adjutant Leo. I) Walker hnving been sent with the howitiers. and the non-commissioned officers remaining with me to assist In the service of tho hattery. In this action thM trnnnn under vonr rmnniMntl huvo rfifttnpml nno nine-pounder, mounted on a cheek trail carriage. one nine-pounder, one aix-pounder. and aeven four-pounder guna. all mounted on new atock trail carriage*. Three pleeea were manufactured In f'hlhuahua. except the nix-pounder, which la an old Hpaniah piece. Three of the four-pounilera were made at the mint In Chihuahua. Seven of the ten pleeea were aplked hut have been uneplked aince their Rapture; four of theae were rendered unaerrlceable In the action; one, entirely diamounted, waa aeiied by my Adjutant whllat in tho act of being dragged from the field by the 1 atreating enemy. There were alao taken, two pleeea of artillery mounting three wall pleeea of one and a half inch calibre each, and theae are formidable weapona upon a charging force. With theae twelve pleeea of artillery waa taken a due proprotlon of ammunition, Implementa, harneaa, mulea. ke .and they may be rendered aervlcablc by being properly repaired and manned; for which purpoae. I would aak for further reinforcement of my command.

Capt. Duff, with Lieutenant Morrihew, lay til the state room, and only the thickness of a board saved their lives. The sails, also rigging, are so completely shattered,that it will be impossible to proceed to sea, so we immediately put about, and hailed the steamer, and were boarded by one of her officers, when the captain of our vessel, (the Mobile.) with Lieutenant Divver, proceeded back with the officer and held a consultation, and concluded to Immediately put back for New York.

And we say, without the least fear of crihtradictiou, that it is more durable than either tin. xiiic, or conper. All wre ask. therefore, of those wisluug to evade one-half the expense usually incurred in roofing, is, to give it an unprejudiced examination. The subscribers have executed this roofing on over 100(1 buildings, all, oran\ ol winch they are willing the public should examine for themselves. We wish the public uet to he deceived by confouuding the American composition with a specie* of tax and paper roofing practised under the pretence that it is the same. The cost of the American Composition Roofing, when executed on plank hoards or shingles, averages from 4% to 6 cents the square foot ; ami when executed on tin, vine, or copper, to 3f9 cents per square foot.
