It contain* about ten thouftnnd inhabitants, many of whom are descendants from the old French settlers. This being the residence of Uenorul Lewis fe'ass. a number of gentlemen called upon him to pay their respects, and reported him in tine condition for the chances of '48. before a National Convention. llu will not visit Chicago, but a large delegation from thin city will bo present. The town of Windsor lies on the Canadiaa hhore. opposite, and the strait, betweeu this aud It, is about two miles In width. Handwlch lies below, towurdH tho lake, and Maiden at the rntruiw of thin connecting link, that joins the waters of the great went iii one body The couutry round about. is represented an in excellent condition for comiug crops, and there in less croaking as to tho failure of the usual wheat harvest than ateiiherof tho ports in Ohio The crop will fall short, but nothing like the extent of that in Ohio. As Michigan produces more wheat for its population than any other State in the Union, thin is an important item tor the benefit of speculators; but. more especially, I intend It for the prospective comfort of men with families, that demolish a dozen of our now stinted loaves at an early breakfast. From my owu observations and from numerous conversations aloug this route with intelligent captains of vessels, mates and pilots, who have navigated these northern lakes lor years past, I have formed the following conclusions as to necessary improvements in the harbors of Lake Krie, which is til) milts iu width by :i40. Ou leaving or apprnuching Buffalo, tho first prominence of land that strikes the mariner's eye, on the American side, is Sturgeon I'oint, 1H miles front that city, where a light house is greatly needed to aid navigation. The next port of note is the contemplated termination of the New York and Erie railroad, at Dunkirk harbor, 4ft miles from Buffalo, the piers of which have been allowed to go to decay, and the harbor is therefore nearly useless. To repair it now would cost thousands, whereas, if half the money had been expended at the proper period, the advantages of this important port would nave been preserved. The dlstanoe by the brie railroad, when completed, from Duukirk to New York, will be 470 miles. By the presnt route of steamboat to Buffalo, railroad to Albauy. and the North river, it is 47ft miles The next ligut above Dunkirk eight miles distaut, la at the small port of Barcelona, near Westflelil, the most western village of New Vor (, which contains about COO inhabitants This light is supplied with luflammablo gas. introduoed by pipes from a spring a mile distant Tho next important port on this lake is brie, Pennsylvania, 37 miles beyond, where the upper light greets the eye of the watchful mariner at night, but tftut on the pier at the entrance of the harbor, which was destroyed by fire last summer, has uot yet beeu rebuilt, notwithstanding its greet necessity. This harbor and Conneaut, atj miles above, and Ashtabula 13, are among the best on the lake. The next light house seen is at Madosa dock, and is of little use to the navigator. Kuirport. next above. 191 miles from Buffalo, oilers a good Inside harbor, although the ckauuel is very crooked, and should be dredged ?ud the pier extended, i hen comes the most imporlaut harbor ou the lake, at Cleveland, Ohio, which is very capacious inside, but the piers at its mouth need exteuding several hundred feet further Into the lake, i he ports of Black river, -Jd miles a ove, V e. million 3d, aud Huron ft8, are all shallow, and cannot he made capable of receiving vessels of a large class. The harbor of Sandusky, ten miles distant, is good, but Its mouth is saailow and needs dredging, as also that of Maunicc Bay, which then would be ol much servioe.? j I uiiiiingriuiii s 1-la.uil ana I'Hl-iu-Uay, mmr the head ot tli? lake, oftVr good harbors, with plenty of water. as also Lung Point Cut on the ('.inmlit side, below, nod (iraud river, ut the entrance of the VVeliuud canal? The Canadian government should place a buoy at liar 1'oint. near the entrance of Detroit river, below Maiden, and thus we have paused through Lake Krie to Detroit city and presented hii impartial and entirely disinterested view of all important improvement)) that appear to be desired for the navigation of tliin inland Sea? A railroad extends Irom Detroit to within about CO miles of .St Joseph 's, on t lie east side of i.ake Michigan, aud travellers in haste can take this route, and thus, by Mteain aud stage, ouch as it Is, shorten the distance (but not the comfort) about one half. The route by water, as we are destined, is 70<l miles, while across tile Slate and Lake to Chicago it is only about 280 ; but who would miss the beautiful little St. Clair?only *21 miles by 21?or the grandeur and transpureuoy of Huron, the bold bluffs and bracing air of Mackinaw Straits, and the emerald Michigan, lor the heat aud dust of railroad and stages, merely to arrive a few hours sooner in a crowded city f Not I, I'll assure you. The Canadian government are slowly progressing In Internal improvements, and a railroad or canal from Oeorgiau llay, on Lake Huron, to Toronto, on Lake Ontario. which is only M miles, will sooner or later be constructed. and thus secure, not only much of the North- < i era travel, but also the transportation of freight, and especially copper, trom Lake Superior, destined for New York and Boston. By this route, all the so-called dangers of the navigation of Lake Krie. and nearly all thut of Huron, will be avoided, and the distance shortened to less than one-fourth. The time will soon arrive wheu this work, so important to Canada West, which is the agricultural heart of that country, will be completed. The laudable competition in steamboat travel on these western lakes, forms a striking contrast With that of thu Knglish steamers. The voyage across the Atlantic is about 3.000 miles, aud that from Buffalo to Chicago, as we travel it, near 1.000. The price of cabin passage across the Atlantic, that now occuplea about twelve days, Is !f>160, while that on this route, thut occupies four days, is only $10, and the fuyo i. equal to the best hotels iu the 1 'uton Let n* aee four days at a good hotel, at $2 per day. is K>S, leaving a balance of for a voyage of a thousand miles through a region that would give a dying man an appetite for meat and drink. Is not this truly a great, a very ureat country The steamer Heudrick Hudson, that uow bears the writer, Is among the best oti these lakes, and as a descrintion of this boat will irive vour re*d?r? a mriml Idea of all, I w|ll briefly describe her and her preamt onTgo.

The harbor of St. Josephs, opposite Chicago, in the State of Michigan, being the contemplated terminus of the railroad extending across that State, is in poor condition, and needs additional dredging, as also does the port of Michigan City, near the head of the lake After passing tbe Manitou Islands, the steamers usually make for the east side of the lake, touching first at Hbeybogan, Wisconsin territory, a distance of about 'WO miles from the Strait* of Maclnaw. This appeared to ma to be one of the most thriving small towns in the west; and as an evidence of iu recent prosperity, Qver 300 frame tenements were erected during the past veer. The next point of Interest is the pert of Mllwaiikie, where nearly all our German steerage passengers were destined. This U the largest town in Wisconsin territory, and tbe Bow of emigration constantly arriving at Ita wbarves with its great advantages of water power, will soon swell Its population to an extent that will appear incredible to all except those acquainted with the rapid growth of this flourishing refton of tbe Union. % aeft^aWBii i&AjJij'y n ??* RK E CORNING.

Tbua , we sped onward, until at ten o'clock on Monday even- , Ing, when we entered the harbor of Chicago, the prairie city of the wcat, and theaeat of the contemplated " Hirer and Harbor Convention." Notwithstanding we were a week In advance of its meeting, vet it waa difficult to secure rooms. as nearly all at the principal hotels had been monopolized by delegates yet to oome; but Captain Squlers, of the Sherman House, took us In, from whence we are now indicting this epistle. From our window, the beautiful Mlohigan extends beyond the reach of human eye to the north east and south, while the swells of the prairie on th? west appear* boundless to the sight, and imagination is lost in the encircling vastness. Chicago Is the cspitsl of Cook county, Illinois, and | is said to contain ubout 15,000 inhabitants. It Is beauti- | fully situated on level ground, and au artificial harbor linn been made by the construction of piers at the luoutb of the Chicago river. There arc four dally papers here, j aud any quantity of weeklies, including two abolition i prints. The streets are yet unpaved. The sidewalks ' arc good, being constructed of plank laid upon deeper^. I The town is thriving, from Its Internal trade with the immense agricultural region in Its vicinity; and as soon I as thu contemplated internal lmpro\emeut* through the ; State, that oeutre at this point, aro finished, it will swell far, far back on the beautllul western prairie. lireat preparations are uiaklng for the assemblage of the convention, and delegates are already beginning to pour in. There being no building of extent sufficient to accommodate this will be organized under a tent oapable of holding two thousand persons, in the public square, opposite the Sherman Hotel. Letters have been received by the corresponding com- I mlttee from Henry Clay, Martin Van Bureii. Oeiierai I Cass, and Silas Wright. Mr Clay, in a short letter, states that ho regrets he I cannot attend the convention, but hopes that It will pro- j cure the accomplishment of all that Is desired. General Cass, in a very short reply, merely says that I he cannot atteud, without expressing any views as to the objects of the convention. Silas Wright has written two Utters, scut together the lirst acknowledging the receipt of the letter of the committee iu which ho refers to the second as containing hit views relative to tho convention. This occupies threo full pages, iu which he expresses himself as pleased with the assemblage of tho convention for the expression and disemlnatlon of the opinions of the people, and avow* himself iu favor of appropriations by Congress for the improvement of all such harbors on tho lakos as are necessary for Its malu navigation, but not extending such appropriations to applications for Improvements in many of the small creeks and rivulets that have heretofore been asked for He separates the improvement of harbors from that of rivers, aud expresses a doubt as to the constitutionality of tho latter, although In some instances, he admits, that it would be just and proper. Martin Van iluren's letter is very short, aud can be so construed aa to sustain the views of hta old friend Silas Wright. Mr. Benton's letter has not arrived, but will probably bo brought by tne St Louis delegation. His letter will also sustain the poaitiou of Silas W right, and thus you see my views in my letter dated St. clair, will bo fully sustained, and that SiUs Wright now is the oonteniplatod nominee of the Benton wing of the democratic party. Mr Webster's letter Is expected to-morrow, but its U contents are too well kuown to bu of much interest, ex- I CeDt for ltd COIiHtitUtioiial ariiiiinMnt In fuvnr nf unnrn. I priutluub.

Tnis city is tilling with travellers and delegates to the convention to be htid on Monday next, and in tbeir train follows the gambling sharks from the east and southwest sprinkled witn a few pickpocket*, hotel robbers, general thieves, and counterfeiters. Kxteuslve arrangements are making by the enterprising citizens of this p ace. to render the accommodation* for delegates all that can be denired, and the Common Council nave appropriated the sum of loOO towards the expenses of the convention. It Is contemplated to celebrate the anniversary of our Independence ou Monduy, when a procession wiH be formed by tbe citilemt. aud the delegates esoorled by States, to the place of assemblage by the convention. The dHy will be occupied In the preliminary arrangements of organization aud tbe selection of a temporary chairman, who will either be James 1.. Barton, hsi|., of Uutlalo, or the Mayor of this city. The industry and research of Mr. barton, as eviiVmced by bis Important published statistical facts, of tbe wt nderful increase of the products and internal oiuimcroe of tbe West, calls lor some mark of distinction from this convention, which we hope will be rendered. The convention will probably remain in sesslou during the whole week, if tbe weather continue* pleasant, aud the luterest will be Increased as it progresses. The votes 1 will be given by Stales, tbe number Jroni each being iu Ihe ratio of that given in the electoral college. Much time will be occupied by promineut speakers, and much interesting matter will be presented through their statistics ami arguments.

Kane and the Columbian Riflemen, under Capt AioAlilater. were to join. It had been announced in *n ad vertlsement that the number of paMenger* would b? limited, and alio that the boat would "top at tb* County whnrf. at Kelli Point, to take on dome of th* military and cltlieni who had procured ticket* It *u. however. apparent that there wan to be a ruah on the boat of MB* persona who were gathered on the wharf, evidently determined to get on board; tho Captain, therefore.r*ra*?d to let the boat make fast to th* wharf, and only a few of iuh persons wbo had no ticket* (jot on board. Tlie boat then left for St. Michael*. having on bo*rd. Including the Columbian Riflemen and the taxi* Artillerist?, about one thousand passengers. a goo 11; portion of whom were ladle* und children On account of the ((rent number on board, it won found impossible to make much headway, and the boat did not reach the vicinity of Annapolis until one o'clock, when it being found Impossible to proceed, pa<nengers were landed tit the Anuapoll<< wharf. (>u first i;u'u^ a liore. the passengers and military were well received by the citizens. and all pasaed OK <1 uiutly until nearly tne hour of departure. \a fkr aa we were able to learn, tlin difficulty <'onimenoed by a toy troui iiu boaifl the boat having hrokeu a wiudow, wnicb it in r-aid wun promptly paid tor, but afterward a companion ol the boy was arretted by an officer for throwing the stouc rhi was resisted by tome of tbe Raltimoreaos, and the boy was rescued from the ofllcer. Nothing more occurred from this time until a few moment* before the departuro of the boat, when some rowdies who were on board tbe boat, and some fellows of a similar character ou the wharf commenced bantering each other for a fight, and the officers of tbe boat were making all haste to leave, so us to avoid a collision. At this moment one of the passeoger* of the boat who wan Htandlng ou the upper deck, with a lemon in bin baud, the skill of which he wan chipping off with a penknife, either aacldnntally or intentionally struck a pen-on on tbe wharf with a piece of tbe skin, when a negro on the wharf threw a bri'-k among the ladies and children who occupied the upper dock The brick struck a lady on the shoulder, injuring her pretty pcvurely. A gentleman ou board who raw the negro tlirow the brick, immediately .matched a rifle belonging to one of the Columbian ItlfleDicn. and fired at the negro, 1 he ball entering hi* log 'l'be scene ou board the boat at thin moment wan awful to heboid Tbe ladie.i aud children were rushing In every direction, amid a shower of bricks from tbe wharf. About a dozen of them were struck by the bricks, while others had to be held to prevent them from Jumping overboard As soon as possible the ladles and children were got below, and stowed away in such portions of the bout as would render them safe from tbe missile* that were raining on the boat from the wharf As soon ax the battle commenced, tbe captain of tbe boat out loose and endeavored to ruu out Into the stream, but unfortunately he had not proceeded many yard! when his boat ran aground. Tbe passenger* having placed the ladieH out of harm's way, uuw rushed to tbe deck, and commenced returning with great vigor, tbn brioks aud missiles whioh had been thrown on boftid from the wharf. Capt McAlister promptly ordered hia men to seisw their rifles and retire from tbe deck, but a number of the guns were forcibly taken ' obsession of by the en raged passengers, and a brisk firlug commenced on tbe crowd that was collected on the shore. The bar waa also broken into by some of the passengers and a large number of empty and full porter bottles seiled and used an missiles. Several of the bdll* that were fired from tbe vecael tooK effect on the rioters on tbe wharf. wbttb>r fatally or not was not known on board tbe boat. One white man on the wharf was observed to receive a boll apparently in the pit of the stomach, which caused him to leap 111 the air, und fall streaming with blood, as if del peralely wounded Others wore considerably wounded wilh bricks unci bottles, bulk on bourj the boat aud oa the whurf Aft#'r being aground *bout twenty-five mlr.utei th? boat fut off, some of b<>r passengers having bten left at Annapolis, among whom whs (apt Kane, of the Bagia Artillery. The boat moved off about five o'clock, and it nt hoped all wax oftr. but on breasting the wiiarf of tha Navy .S' hool, a number of persons were obterred loading a canuon, which they pointed i>t the I oat, and fired It is |ir< bitblH. from the excited Hate of those wbo Bred tt, ihat the mnrile wp.f filled with brick and Jtou.s However nothing from the cauuuu reached tba boat.

These are the fact* of the case as they appeared tu those on board; but the probability is, that other provocation* may have been given to the people at Aana poll*, which dul not come under our notice YVv learn that the Mayor of AnnapolU .Major Swan, and Judge llrewer, of Amiu Arundel cunnty court, have arrived iu the city; we presume, for the purpose of harming the matter invest(gated. We learn thut no one wa:? killed at Anuapoli*. or ai least that none of the wounds received had proved fatal last nipht. A youn-^ man named Uurrell, a clerk in Mr Franklin's store, received a ball above the hip, which wat ( till in his body, and it was feared would prove fatal. Another man named Urady. a baker. who waa inc the authorities in dispersing the rioters, was also shot, the ball passiug through both thighs. We learn, in addition to the above, thatyovritg Kdward Bur nil wan a native of the Htate o. New York. He is very badly wounded. *nd hardly any Ixjpesare entertained of his recovery.
