Affair* In South Amerl?u_Tlic Rrpubllc of Equwlur><<pread of A inci Icaiilaiu. The Jaie President of Equador, General Floree, together with his friend and companion Col. Wi ight, arrived in this city a lew days ago, in t ie French steamer Missouri, "from Havre de G 'ace. We understand that it is the intention of these distinguished individuals to travel over the Uuited State*, to inspect our cities, and B'udy, practically, our institutions. ' As the recent expedition of General Flores has ' made such a noise in Europe and South America, we think some account of that General, and 1 his peculiar position, may uot be found uninte- I1 resting to our readers, and we ar? further moved ^ to d-so, by the fid that th said General, during his government of Equador, not only 8 evinced himself on all occasions to be an ardent 1 admirer of our country and institutions, more c pecially at the period when Mr. Pickett was at ! I Q'uto as our Minister plenipotentiary; but he ! c also proved the sincerity of his sentiments in ' * this particular, by concluding, without delay, the 1 treaty of amity and commerce, which was the b object of Mr. Pickett's mission to Equador, and h which is so favorahle to our commeTce in that 8 quarter. Our observations will, of course, be confined to b some of the leading features of bin public career, a We shall mention that General Flores, from his earliest youth devoted his life to the liberty and independence of his country, Colombia; and that for his eminent services during the long war of emancipation against Spain, he was appointed, at the age of 22 years, to the command in chief of the army of operations, destined to liberate the ancient vice-royalty of Quito, now the capital of the Equatorian Republic. He also became the favorite lieutenant ofBolivar. When Colombia ceased to exist as a republic, by the separation of Venezuela, Flores founded the republic of Equador out of the southern provinces of which he was at tlie?time supreme chief, and left it at liberty to adopt the constitution most agreeable to the wishes of the people. Unfortunately for the people of South America, , their proneness to revolt, an endemic evil ^ amongst them, and so destructive to their best n interests, soon disturbed his first constitutional ft period, and after many fruitless efforts to estab- j liah something like permanent order?sometimes v sustaining the constitution?at others, the go- f vernment?and always pardoning the seditious, ti he retired into private life, where he remained d for some years, until again elected Presi- 1 dent by the unanimous votes of the people e in Congress. With a view to the amalga- li mation of party strife, which continued to t distract the country, he bestowed upon the j most apt, whether opposed to or friends of i his government, such offices as the executive i power had the privilege of filling; and endeavor- c ed by every possible means to draw the attention of the people towards those industrious pursuits s wh'ch lead to public prosperity ; and, is it a sin- a gular fact, and one we record with plea- a wure, that during the three Presidential periods c of General Fiores, not one drop of blood stained c the political scaffold in Eqxador, whilst the 1 t neighbouring Republic of New Granada was t converted into a modern Golgotha by its mili- a ury chief. / 1 t Tranquillity was for sonic time preserved, and I t there appeared a prospect of future good, when suddenly, the Chamber ?f Deputies, stimulated j t by rival interests split into factions, and disquali fied each other from sitting as members on va- ' i riou? grounds. The Chamber became extinct for i want of a quorum of its members. This scanda- | lous proceeding placed the country and the gov- 1 ernment in an embarrassing position. The i council ol State, tne nigu court 01 justice, tne i senate, and the municipal corporations were ; unanimously of opinion, that in accord ance with 1 the spirit of the representative system, the people should be appealed to. General Flores, in conformity, convoked a national convention, and 1 resigned the executive power. The convention assembled, and having established some reforms, i Flores w s confnued in the Presidency for a constitutional term. The whole country evinced I the greatest satisfaction on his election, and poured in congratulations from all quarters. A ' pirt ot the clergy alone showed symptoms of j discontent, and refused to receive the constitU' j tion, alleging that the reformed articles, estab- j lished religious toleration. They, therefore, , commenced working on the mind and prejudices ; of the people, in their respective parishes, setting j in this manner a lamentable example of disobedience and immorality. The people of those countries being, as we have seen for many years, disposed to civil disscntions, the slightest incendiary spark sets all ! In & dime. An insurrection soon broke out in ; Guayaquil in 1848, begun by a company of artillery, who augmented their Inuinbers from the public prisons of that city. The flame of revolt Jed by the secret machinations of bigotry, spread i * .i : i.i ... uiruugnoui mc province, mm mc r?iiiym^ cry ot the revoWers was, " death to strangers and here- , tic* 1" Flores sent a force from Quito to put down < tha revolt; and affr some fighting between the 1 advanced troops on either side, perceiving also, 1 that some ambitions individuals fomented the di sorders cf the country, with views on the Presi- ' ( dency, he resolved to lesfve the country rather 1 than afford any pretext for continuing a civil I ( war, preferring a voluntary exile from the coun- i try rather than the prosecution of those coercive 1 measurea, which most governments similarly ! circumstanced would have resorted to. He, therefore, sent commissioners to Guayaquil, ?nd J a treaty was made with the usual solemnity. 1 j We are indebted to a gentleman for this treaty, ' which we giva in anotb-r part of this day's ' Hfald. , j The treaty stipulated an oblivion ol the p.v.i j full and perf*# security of persons and properly, ' *u4 rr*pt?t for all rights noquireil and nvKnow | j t cruelty vol ting tyranny wna indignation the and authorized GeneralFlores his government as constitutional ^MRuent.and to organize his expedition of emigrants, for in such a light were they only considered, with the view of restoring order in liquador, of repairing the grievous faults which have been committed, to jieople the country with a moral and industrious population; and finally to uproot the bigotry and ignorant prejudices of a country so far in the rear of civilization. It is, perhaps, u great pity his expedition failed being carried out; we are unable to explain the cause of its failure. It is, perhaps, still further to be regretted, that a man of such superior talents, so cajuible of regenerating his country, and raising to the standard its natural resources qualify it to arrive at, should not be at the helm of its destinies. We sincerely "hope, however, to see him, ere long, in hie proper place, as the people of all nations possess an instinctive knowledge .of what is best for their own good and their own h ppiness. The truth of the mitter is that the whole of South America needs a thorough reorganization. Intelligence from Nassau, New Providence.?We have received a few copies of the Royal Gazette of Nassau, the last of which is i.Hed August 4th, from wiiich we extract all the lews we can find in them. There having been a recent supply of refresh- i iitr showers hi Lnns T^innrl wh* pvprv iroepect of good crops. A large quantity of Bait ] ias been also raked on the Island. A Mr?. Knowles and Mrs. Saunders, at the ime Island, have recently each given birth to hree children. ! On ihe 31st of July, Mr?. Elizabeth Sande, of Sleuthera, who was capitally convicted of the j rime of murder, by poisoning, suffered, on the Jastern Parade, the extreme penalty of the law. rhe unfortunate convict walked with a remarkily firm step to the fatal spot, paying, during ler long walk, the most marked attention to her piritual advisers. The Royal Gaxette says:? We regret to learn from Rum Cay, that, they have had ut few salt refuels there since March last; only four, j | ud those but small, have cleared from thenoe with salt luce the 4th of Maroh. Two were American and two English. Although they had rain in the Utter part of lay and beginning of June, there had been a consideable quantity of salt raked And there will be, should he weather continue dry. a large quantity raked during ho remainder of this month (July) and In August ? rhe salt is generally of good quality, aud is now at eight tents the bushel. Vessels suffer no detention there; the ast that loaded at Hum Cay, a schooner, arrived on Saturday, had her cargo on board before 12 o'clock on llonday, and was out of the harbor by 6 o'clock in the ifternoon. She was from Vova Sootla. and took in 'i 616 )u?hel? Some masters of veSMla, it Is stated, who bad risited the Island, declared that they had not been iware that there was such a plane us Hum Cay in the 3 thmmas. where salt could be obtained with such faciliy, otherwise they would have preferred it to other ilaces, particularly in the winter months, when they ould find shelter from the heavy northerly winds, and jad at all times with perfect safety. The sloop Endeavor, from Turks Island, was at Hum u.y, in quest of provisions, which we suppose they ob lined, an there had been no want of plantation prorl- < ion at that place this season. Fine apples are said to thrive well at Hum Cay,and oan e raised there in very large quiiutities Indeed, our orrespondent who id a very old planter, says that aliost any kind of llahama soil will produco I'ine* if tried nd properly cultivate!. 1 The Season and the Watering Places.?The ^arm weather is fust coming to a close, and beDre many weeks will have elapsed, our abseut nillionaires, with their families, will be snugly lomiciled in their winter quarters in town.? ["he present is the gayest season that we have ver Been in the United States. At every point laving even jhe remotest right to be styled a waering place, the. hotels, and other stopping daces, are crowed ; and at Saratoga, Newport lie., hundreds of visiters are " lodged out" every light, every hotel being fifled, and every bed occupied. ' Whether the extraordinary demand for our lurplus produce, to feed the millions of Ireland irid England, whose climate is not as propitious is ours, and the consequent importation of spe:ie was the cause, or whether there were other lauses or not, we do not know ; but certain it is hat more people have visited the watering places his than in any previous year. We are not ilone in onr opinion. The same remark is made iy every one ; and the bland and good humored :ountenances of the hotel keepers confirm it. But everything in this mundane world comes .o end, sooner or later, and the seasons do so with perfect regularity. The end ol the present season is not far ofY? a few weeks more, and the Bprings of Saratoga and elsewhere will be encased with ice?the pebbles which now dance in the sun's rays, will be Bcaled up for some months, and the now filled hotels will be silent. All, therefore, who have not yet tasted of the watering places, must do so soon, or the opportunity will be gone. The good people of Newport are determined to mtke the most of what remains to them of the season. There will be a grand funcy dress b.ill there to-nii{ht, at which the visiters, comprising the ilitt of every city and State in the Union, will l>e present. A glorious time they Will doubtless have of it. and nilr ri _ , ? ?/ expect a sketch of the doinutt on the occasion. City Iiitelll)(enc?. Th? Wr.iiHi? - I h?

Chatham Theatbe.?W? made an elTort to get a seat Id the Chatham theatre last evening for the purpose of seeing the performance* of the llollauil and Carlo families, but had to ba contented with standing, outside the boxes, the place being so full. Wo succeeded In getting a glimpse at them however, and were amply repaid lor the inoouvenienoe of our positiou. They were, imked wonderful and amusing. Think of one man, of hurou- I lean frame and sinew, bearing up tour others as Urge ub himself, one on his neck, one on top of him again, aud one on each hip. We saw the barrel exercise too, which . comprises some extraordinary and ridiculous fcate. and a variety of pantomimic portormances.

Mr. Sandt'ord objected to the evidence as inadmissible. A very long and desultory discussion then took plaae between the counsel on both rides as to the admissibility of (he testimony, which wiui ultimately ruled out by the judge. The case was thcu narrowed down by the judge to two points, namely, whether before Justice Drinker had obtained jurisdiction of Bruui's person, the proceedings were regular or not; nnd secondly. whether hi* proceedings, after he had obtained jurisdiction, wore or were not regular Upon the last point the judge denided that the prooeediug< w re regular.and as such the question was one of rr.t judicata.?

A letter from 7,nn- ' caster, in the Philadelphia Penniylvavian ol yesterday morning, gives along account of the trial of James Hamilton, a colored man, for the murder of Jacob Hunter, also colored, in December. Hamilton beat Hunter on the head with a stone till be was senseless, and then robbed him of his watch and money. The most extraordinary thing in the whole mattir was the onduct of a medical man, whom Hunter's father asked to attend his wounded son. The medical man did not come until ten days had elapsed; then he '(avo Hunter a dose of salts, put ?u adhesive piaster on his h-ad lit him and never came near him again Hunter died on the 1 .lib day atf.r his hurt.

A careful prluaal of the charter (ace Harrison's Compilation, page 3(9,) will satify auv oue that it does ant givr the powar to conatruct thin road. The 7th section aava, near the middle, "nor shall any part of aaid road or roada lie located aoutli >>f the turnpike road or cauaaway leading from Newark to Jersey City. ' Is not Naw Brunswick aouih of that turnpike I There is no room for doubt or argument on this point. Agsin, the last clause of the same section provides, " and provided also, that iu pasaiug through the county of Sussex, the main line of said railroad shall be laid outand constructed as ueaily through the centre of said comity as the nature of the grouud ana formation of the country will permit, without prejudice to the intereata of the stockholders." Of course, nude, this laugusire, thcymust ctll the road from New Bruuswick to Kastoa a lateral road ; it cannot be the maiu road, for that tr ust pass through the centre of Sussex. But to what would it be lateral 1 to the New Jersey Ra<lroad.aud not to the maiu line authorixed,bv this charter. The construction which any man of sense would put upon the charter, would be an authority to construct a maiu road tlnough the county of Sussex, with lateral roads diverging from it, and uniting if desirable with other roads. The word lateral implies aa much of itaelf It is evident that Messrs. Jackson, Wright, Gregory It Co., have not read this charter very carefully, or elae they rely ou some ''hocus hocus' operation to pervert its plain meaning ; but they may be assured that in due time steps will be taken to test the matter. An injunction may one day n ing them up all ataudiug They need not rely upou their well known influence with ret, Uncle Bill, fcc., to preveut an uiiuuetion, for there are ot'aer tribunals wh*re the matter can be tested.

Canton Company fell off 6)? per cent, according to a sale of one hundred shares, which was generally considered in the street a "wash;" Morris Canal 1)<; Pennsylvania Vs Illinois!*'; Norwich and Worcester advanced 1; Long Island ; Harlem There were large sales of Harlem and Norwich at the improvement; and It id the impression among many of the shrewdest oper- ! atom, that prosent prioes are too high for these fancies, that the advance has been too rapid,and that a reaction must take place in a few days. Many strong operators in these fancies have within the past day or two been sellers, and it looks as though they were getting ready" for a smash. However, at times, all signs fail, and it Is possible they may now. It would, at all events, be well to be on the safe side and realize fair profits at present prior?, rather than wait for a further rise, and run the risk of losing all the existing impr vement. The valuation of property in Providence, R. I., this j year was $37,301,900, against $'25,593,200la*t year. The j rato of tax this year is 45 cents on the $100. Tho va- j luation of property in 1837 was $14,616,000, and the tax ! 31 cents on the $100. It thus appears that in ten years ! the value of property has nearly doubled, and the rate [ nf taxation increased neariv flftv ner cent.
