1? ; hat some time sgo these pillar*, whloh were deemed a luisanca, with the gates opposite the A*tor House, were urehaaed by Mr briaplalne, of Long 1 eland. Onbeiag poioTt-d yesterday. the mesons discovered several tin ?ms sealed op, which were taken to the comptroller a (flee They were sent there in charge of th? polio*, and > ill be opened, of course. .The public look forward with oxirtj as to the result of the examination. We expect o set' revtral relics when the tin boxes are opened. Muhdkb moit Fori.?A short time ba^k, during the it<- fine weather, as a gentleman, who is a highly repectible manufacturer residing at Williamsburg, was kiuuslDg himself by a pleasant ramble on .the banks of lie rive, opposite New York. and not far from the powMrr magazine, he was suddeDiy shocked by perceiving ',1 body in tba water. Fortunately some of tbe handa in Ibis employment, not beiug far off, ha called one or two bftbein, and by their assistance, drew tha body of the mfurtunate deceased out of the river To their Inexpressible horror they beheld before them the body of a air and elegant young lady, about nineteen years of fge, of surpassing beauty. Kven In death the features of ier countenance wrre expressive of the utmost female .oveiinees. That she belonged to tha higher claas of iociety was'also evident fromfall the appearances which iccompanied her. Her linen was of the finest and noet delicate texture, her skin fair ana beauiful as alabaster, and around the ubst was a >?ir ot corsets of the most expensive kind, and richly 'oibroidercd. H?r frMk w?a nf A. rlflh lllr an/1 KaH ?wf_ lently been torn by violence in shreds from b<>r poison Long lioglets of bsautltul roft hair hung dishevelled over her now melancholy ftce, and hung down upon her Inely proportioned shoulders Such a form, ofsuoh fair Proportion* and elegant make, with a oountenanoe so 'air and lovely, ii seldom seen, or when seen Is the ob?ot of surprise and admiration. She had evidently been i bused, in a manner that makes one shudder, and then !>rutaUy murdered in the most heartless and eruel manner, and afterwards thrown Into the river. Her feet were fast bound together by a silk handkerchief tightly Lied around them, and on lifting her up, the parting hair, as It full on one side, disclosed a large wound and ghastly aperture on the baek part of her limly-shaped bead. No doubt some mourning and fond parents are still disconsolate and weep Ing at the disappearance of their beloved child, lit'.le dreaming, perhaps, or the cruel late which has befallen her, and, perhaps, their feelings harrowed up with dreadful surmisings und cruel suspicions towards her; perhaps even looking for her return home again, some <lay or other, degraded, as they fear, and penitent and tiumbleil! Whether the murderers have bsen discovered, or whether even any notioe whatever has been at all taken of such an appalling murder, and any measures .adopted to huve the body recognized, and to put the police on the alert, we are quite unable to s?y. The sad remains of the onoe lovely and beautiful girl were deposited, as we have been informed, some time back, with indifferent carelessness, to an unknown and unnoticed ?;rave, by the poor house at WilliamsburKh. it is true tbe careless formality of the coroner was oalled tor and ncted over the body, on the ecoaslon, but this was lneffdntual, we believe, in procuring any of those steps to be taken whioh undoubtedly ought, in all oases, vigorously and immediately to be followed up on ?uch awful occasion Who, or what family, can be cafe from aisaacination, if murder In taken no notloe of ? What i? to appal th? murderer, if he know* his horrid dead will sfiaroely excite attention, and will' not even be enquired into ?? Among the various ooDjeotures current as to the manner in which this terrible deed was perpetrated, while some say that there are In the citr of New York some Turkish baabaws, or something like them, who send their wires in sacks by night to be drowned in the Bosphorus, and others aver that suoh deeds of horror and darknrfts are but of too common occurrence, the most probable solution we have heard of the crime whioh his undoubtedly been committed, is the following, whioh we roluta as we have heard it stated. It seems, then, that it has been, of late, in tine weather, the nightly custom of many youDg persons in this city to sail from the upper piirt of the city iu boats, upon pleasure excursions, va that beautiful sheet of water the Kast River. Suine of those persons who thus pass their nights, are represented as being lioenttous and dissipated voug men, ready for any evil deed, and delighting to wanton in orime, which with them goes uausually by the gentler name of a "lark" or a "spree." It is supposed, then, that the unfortunate viotlm of lust and murder had, in the natural and amiable credulity of woman, been led to believe the false declarations and oaths ot one of the above sort of young men, swearing eternal love and oonstanoy, and had, In a fatal hour, bestowed her affeotions, perhaps, on one she, in her simplicity, believed as sincere and virtuous as herself. Thus led away, she wm, no doubt, easily induced to accompany her treacherous lover on an excursion by water some fine moonlight oveaing. The sequel tells Its own story. Here in a boat, with associates delighting in seduoing and destroying the lnnooent, perhaps according to a long prepared plan to get her there, i>ht< became the suooessive object and viotlm of brutality, and then, to oover the crime thus committed, another Orime of nitiless violence and barbarous mnrfw wan added;a crime already frightful enough from it* atrocity Suoh crimes oannot long go undetected and unpunished But though the actors in suoh deeds may, for a time, cnoape, they are not to be envied. Life to him who indulges in vice, excess, and crime, is a living death and a burning grave; and the punishment of a condemning guilty conscience, is a torment uuendurable. Sudden Death.?Coroner Walters was called yesterday to held an inquest at No. 36 Dcy street, upon the body of Ann Fisher, aged years, a native of England, who died suddenly from the rupture of a blocd vessel near the heart. The deoeased was unusually well and cheerful on Tuesday night, and retired at her usual hour, to every appearance, in good health, and felt no inconvenience until about 4 o'clock yesterday morning, when she had a difficulty of respiration. Her husband immediately went for a physielan, but she died before bo reached the house. The jury found a vferdict that she came to her death from the before mentioned cause Melancholy Accident.?Coroner Walters was also called yesterday, to hold an inquest in 20th street, between 9th and;lOth avenues, upon the body, of Joseph B. Halsted, aged 37 years, a native of New York, who was killed on Tuesday, by being thrown from his cart, at the oorner of Orange and Walker sticets. Verdiot in accordance with the loregoing faots. Infanticide.?Coroner Walters also held an inquest yesterday, at the Uth ward police station, upon the body of a female infant, which was found in the lumber yard of William Smith, foot of Stanton street, with the sknll very muck fraotured, and the brain congested. The jury found that the deoeased oame to her death by injuries inflioted on the head by some person or persons unknown to them.

THOMPSON, Street Commissionrr. Street Commissioner's Office, Nov. 30th, 1847. Tragkdy or Real Lifk?Early in the month of August last, arrived in this city from Montgomery, Alabama, a young gentleman, who located himself in comfortable quarters, at a boarding house on Sixth street. He was the favorite possessor of a pleasing exterior, an agreeable address, and an Inordinate share of the rare quality of Impudence. He gave his namo as franklin Ward, and was frequently beard to remark that his family was among the most distinguished in his native State. He was liberal, almost to prodigality, in his expenditures; and all who had the good fortune to mate his acquaintance, esteemed themselves in luck. The lady boarders of the house adored him, and the gentlemen condescendingly patronised his oyster parties and voted him a trump. The landUdy was blessed with one fair daughter, and no more, wbo conceived an ardent attachment for thehandeome Frank, and he, sharp i fellow, wai not now to discover tne wet a uectaration ensued, followed ijutckly by m contract on the part of our gay Lothario to wed the lady, so noon as he should receive the sanction of hli friends in Alabama. Weeks glided swiftly by, and Mr Krank'a exchequer began to exhibit unmlstakeable symptoms of exhaustion. Months had slipped away, an d so did our hero's last "shiner " Tne landlady, simple soul, grew fidgety?friends waxed cool, and all things began to assume a gloomy and unpromising aspect. All, save the fair bethrothed?the wrenged but still ardent and confiding victim (for saoh, alas, she had become) of the seducer's wiles?suspected that the liberal, gentlemanly, handsome and incomparable Mr Ward "was not what he seemed " Vesterday morning Mr. Ward did notiiae at his accustomed hour Several ot the gentlemen boarders had been robbed during the night. Home mourned their departed watched; others deploredtbelr purses and ~ pooketbooka; and the poor old landlady was inconsolable tor the loss of hall a dozen sliver spoons, which she had. on the evening previous, carefully locked up in tha dr?n??r. Altogether, there waa considerable commotion In . the house; some cursed their unlucky stars; some awnre at the city council and the police; othera took it coolly; urn! a lew sought oonsolation In a "nipper" of old rye bet re breakfast Notwithstanding tha unuaual noise about the preraiaea, Mr. Ward continued to Bleep on, undisturbed. Nine o'olock came?to did ten? eleyen? twelve, the frequent appeals at Mr. Ward's bedroom door were unanswered. A carpenter was at length called, who, forcing the door, discovered?nobody. The bird had flown. Mr. Ward had taken an unceremnnlnun departure for some more congenial sphere, aad with him Lad gone divers watches, rings and purses, never to return. On learning the heartless desertion of her *?du.'iT the youDg lady swooned, and awoke a raging kmiilac. At last aoooonti *he wm Is ft dmgarous litua Um.-ClMiwH iifnuli t ' he Cm* of BUhop Ondtrdook. In thc House or Biihom, Ootobar j8, 1im7.?Tha oommlttae to which, war* r?f?rr?d the latter m< OMOrial of the Rt. Rut. Berjamitt T. OndardoBk, D. D , bag leave to report that they have takea thoaa documents undar their moat serioua and delibeaaU consideration, anl have eome to the following oooolnataB*:? Tba application of tha memorialist to ba relieved from tha sentence of tha tteoleaiaatioal Court, by wbteh ba aunda suspended. without limitation. from tha offlea of tba episcopate and the ministry, cannot ba favorably regarded by your commlttaa. for several reasons. Klrnt beoauiin the memorialist, oaca conTlcted on unImpeacbed and ample testimony, ol the charge of immorality, oan hardly hope to exercise attain his high and holy offloe. to tba honor of (Jod and the edifying of tba Church, in the face of the same oomm unity. Tha offloe of a Bishop was conferred upon tha memorialist. not for jIs own saka, but for the benefit of tba church ; and therefore it is not for his saka, but for the welfare of the church, that the exerelae of It should eTer be committed to him again. Your committee do not maintain tha impossibility of his restoration, nor deny that he may hereafter aatlsfy tba ohurch of the strength of his claims ; but they do not conceive that it would be consistent with the high and solemn responsibility of the eplsoopal character, lor the Bishops to entertain the application of tha memorialist, until he c*n lay before them the most ample and satisfactory testimonials. Secondly: While your committee do not perceive that the repentanoe and reformation of the memorialist would of themselves, entitle him to be restored to the full exercise of his eplsoopal functions, and his charge of tha dlooese ; yet they are bound in candor farther to say, that ha does not stand In the position of a penitent. 80 far from this is the fact, that ba baa ohosnn. in his memo. rial, to be an aoouser of the law, of the oourt, and of tha witnesses; Had instead of confessing bis fault*, and profiting repentance for them, ha assumes the character of an injured man, and claims the remission of hla sentence aa a matter of right. Suoh being the ground on which the memorialist has ohosen to rest his application, It is manifest that the House of Bishop? could not grant it without incurring the reproach either of admitting the justice of his complaint, or of shrinking from the defenoe of the truth, through the force of olamor. If they were capable of deserving either of these imputations, they would show themselves unworthy of the confidence of the ohuroh, and altogether unfit to guard the holy administration of its discipline, whioh is oommitted to their care. But in none of the oeiuures of the memorialist can your oommlttee concur. Aa to the canon of 1844, under which he was tried and oondemned, the main principle that a bishop might be presented by any three bishops, aa well as by his own convention, waa introduced nine years before. The constitution of the church waa altered In order to admit the change, and the first oanon In whloh the principle wia embodied waa passed In 1841, with the most entire unanimity. The Home of Clerloal and Lay Uepwtles, in 1841, made no alteratlon'ln that principle, but only supplied the details which many conoelved to be necessary to it* practical operation. And the canon patsed by them was approved in the House of Bishops by the memorialist himself, and met with no opposition from any quarter. And on the trial of the memorialist under that oanon, not one word was said by him, or his able counsel, about its supposed unconstitutionality, nor about Its ex po$t facto operation. Neither waa there the slightest exception taken, or attempted to be taken, against any of the bishops that compound the court. Neither was there any assault upon the charaoter of the witnesses, nor any attempt to impeach their reputation for veracity. Neither, after the verdlot of "guilty" was deolared, and the respondent was called upon to assign bis reasons why sentence should not be pronounced, did he suggest a word against the canon, or against the legality of the whole proceeding ; nor did he even ask for a new trial, or review, as he manifestly should and would have done, If he or his couusel had supposed that injustice had been done him. The sentence which followed was pronounced by nine of the oourt, while tho other eight voted for his degradation. And of the validity and effeot of that sentence, your committee cannot have a moment's doubt. It stands, and must stand, in fullforoe, until it Is remitted hl? fhn aniKneU.. Q..4 _Wil~ ? sustain the proposition that the remission of that mtence is a porsible event, in contemplation of law, they deem it but justice to the memorialist and to the diocese of New Vork, to add that they oonsider the probability of its occurrence so slender and remote as scarcely to afford a reasonable basis for future action. In conclusion, vour committee respeotfully reoommend the adoption of the following resolution:? Resolved, That] the memorialist, have leave to withdraw bis letter and memorial.

In that year Mexloo famished extensive markets for the British oallooes; the imports into that oountry for that year being more than trn militant of yardi. The exportation of oallooe from Great Britain to Mexico, In the first six months of 1848, waa 4.6(11,816 yards, and to the United States, for the same period 11,716,668 yards. This shows the importance and extent of the trade with Mexloo in this single article. The falling off in this trade, In the first six months of 1817, has been immense?the Importation of several descriptions of ootton manufactures into Mtxieo have ceased altoiriith?p Th?f. marknf hta nnf KjMn annnliaH with fliikM i articles from any snuroee, and the oonaumptloa hw be?n suspended. Aetire hoetllltles between the United State* and Mexico commenced In May, 1840; immedl. ately after the blockade of the porta took plaoe, and the imports were reduced to a very limited amount. The capture of Vera Crux took plaoe in March, 184? ; immediately after whioh the porta were opened, a new tariff of dutlea eetabliahed, the wheela of commeroe were again put in motion, and the importations came in pretty faat. We cannot, however expect any trade of conaequenoe with the Interior until the roada are opened and aafe to travel upon. There must be a great want of foreign manufatures In the Interior of Mexioo. A population of about ten millions oonaume Immense quantities of ootton goods, which must be supplied from some external souroe, and hereafter there will be a more equal oontest between the manufacturers of Great Britain and those of this oountry, for the monopoly of the Mexioan marketa. We stand in the best position for tupplying the demand for cotton goods from that quarter, and suoh is our confidence in the enterprise of our eastern manufacturers, tbat we hare no doubt they will avail themselves of thla opening. To enable them to do thia thoroughly, to oontrol theae marketa perfectly, it may b? necessary to Americanlxe the porta, to make a discrimination tariff Id favor of Amerloan manufactures and products, that we may stand upon a mora favorable footing than otbar nations. There are many who advocate the free opening of the ports to Amerloan products; but the government depend too much upon a revenue fron imports to make the trade so free. A difference of live per oent in our favor, would be all that is neoessary to secure us the bulk of this trade. There are numerous ootton manufactories in Mexico. In 1811, there wera fifty-three factories, havlog 131,280 (pinuiM, wmcn consumed about 3,000,000 pounds of cotton manually, being about 1,000,000 pound* more than the production of lb at country, at that time. The raw material oan be produced in Mexico to a much greater extent then ever yet re all led, and we have no doubt but that this element of wealth will inoreaie as rapidly a* all other*, when there la a proper mixture of tbe AngloSaxon race. There is not a richer eowntry on tbe face of the em-th than Mexico, and It is a matter of much astonishment to those who hare visited it, that sucb a peopis should have inhabited it so long and developed no more of its resource*. It undoubtedly has been left by the supreme Iluler or the universe, for tbia country to extend it* protecting arm over the kilter republlo, to give it eound and wholesome laws, and otrillie lta Inhabitant* ;W? (hall place Mexico, ai a country, In a more favorable petition than she has ever yet enjoyed, distribute the wealth of her mines over the world, extend her commerce, and give her a rank among commercial nation* second to but few. Wr can regenerate and dls enthrall the people of that magnificent country, and It is our destiny to do so. It never was Intended that suoh a rich and fertile section of the world should remain In the possession of ? half civilised race.

The last dates reoelved in your oitvby express are, consequently, four days in advance of tne mail. It is presumed that the cause of these detentions has been neavy freshets in South Carolina and Alabama. The papers received contain no news of intorest, and we are without an item In our place worthy of transmission. Several members of Congress have passed through northward and some are still In the city, while many others are behind in the missing mail trains, if travel at the South has been seriously interrupted, as it was last winter to the extent of eight censecutlve days, it may have an important bearing on the organisation of Congress The chances will be favorable to the whlgs, as a large majority of the Southern members, liable to detention, are democrats.

Whilst treasury notes are only at pax here, it eems they are at eight par ceat premium in the iity of Mexico. Of this the present holders ef reasary notes already subscribed cannot avail bemselves, by reason of the export duty on coia ind bullion, imposed by the President, at lb* ecommendation of the Secretary of the Trealurv But if I am not mistaken, Mr. Walker will avail himself of this export duty, (which, of cournp, will not apply to government fundi) md sell in Mexico, for n|>ec>f. at premium, a large batch of hits new treasury notes, which he intends to a?k. from Congress?and bring the coin to Xew York or New Orleans. Thus the current of specie, instead of continuing to flow from this country to Mexico, will be rolled baek from Mexico on this country, and at the same time the premium on treasury notea will be concerted to the benefit of the government. Mr. Walker's report has been long since made 3ut; but the tables showing the operation of the arifT since its institution, being for a fraction of i fiscal year, and even dividing the quarter, (ita operation having commenced in December) nave >een very tedious and troublesome. 'rd'TH have already been transmitted to the nilitary and naval commanders in Mexico, to evy contributions by collecting federal, Slate ind citv taxes, as well <is import and export luties, in accordance with Mr. Walker's recomnendatiun. This .scheme will be carried into sxecutien on the President's own responsibility, ilthough he will allude to it in his message, as will Mr. Walker in hia report, an part of the lyatcm determined upon by the administration. The Intelligencer ot yesterday contained an arid e on Mr. Slidell's mission, which makee out i very strong case in support of Mr. Clay'a declaration, that General Taylor received orders ,o march to the Rio Grande, while Mr. Slidell wason his way to Mexico, and before the result [>f his mission could lie known to thia government. As far as this representation tells against the administration, it is not my province to combat it?the President haa an organ?but as it is an important historical question, involving the character of the nation, it is fitting that the InteUigencer'i misconception should be set right. ('u the 17th December, 1845, Mr, Slidell wrote to the Secretary of State, declaring the success ot hia mission nighly improbable, and enclosing the decree of the council of government advisiig against hia reception On the 18th of the aame month, Mr. Bl?ck, our Conaul at the city of Mexico, from whom Mr. Buchanan was in the habit of receiving important information, wrote that the reception of Mr. Slidell was entirely hopeless. These letters were received here I believe on the 12th of January, 1846?at all events, before the 13th, on which dtry a meeting of the cabinet was convened, and it was resolved to despatch orders to < rtMnl Taylor to advance to the Rio irande. Thia order was issued in anticipation af a hostile movement on the part of Mexico. ru? ..i..*: r n i?_ ... i uc icvuiuuuii ui i arcucM was, tu mc uaic ui Mr. Black's letter, within twelve days of its completion, tind that revolution owed ita success to the avowal by l'aredes. of his determined hostility to the United States, ind his determination to reject all overtures tor b 11 umicahle adjustment of the Jifliculties between the two countries. Of course, then, with this revolution pending, and the result being by no means problematical, there was a probability amounting almost to a certainty, that Mr. Sliaell's mission would fail; and in anticipation of its failure, and of the hostilities which were certain to result from tha success of the revolution against Herrera, the administration at once despatched orders to Gen. Taylor to march to the Rio Grande. The result has fully justified by proving the necessity of this step. If any proof were wanting of the determination of l'aredes to make war, it is to be fouud in the declaration of Herrera, in assigning his reasons lor declining to act as Commissioner to treat with Mr. Trist, that his administration waa overthrown because he was in fuvor of listening to negotiation. The man who pronounced against and overthrew him, because of his willingness to receive our Hamster, must have been opposed to ihat minister's reception, opposed to negotiation, and in favor of war. Of this there can be no question ; Puredes, himself, has avowed it. But in order that nothing might be left undone that could afford even a remote chance of success, Mr. Slidell was not at once recalled, but was permitted to remain in Mexico to avail himself of any opportunity that might by possibility occur to secure peace. He finally, however, presented his credentials to the new government, on the first of March. 1846. and re quested to be received in his diplomatic character. This request was peremptorily refuted. _ _ _ wtvibhsis. Washington, Nov. 80, 1847. Evening Paragrapht. We have, all told, about forty members ol the House in town. Among the arrivals thia even) in?, we have at^Ooleman'a, Hon. J. R. Miller, Ohio, Hon. Jacob Collamer, Vt., Hon. Hugh White, N. Y., Hon. I). R. Atchinson, (of the Senate,) Mo , and Hon. John Jamison, Mo. At Brown's, Hon. J. E. Brady, Pa., Hon. Wm. Rockwell, Ind , Hon. John Pettit, do., with several at the United States, Gadsby's, and other places, where we had not time to visit. The employees of the Iloase are justly interested in the arrival of every member?it is to them the question of subsistence that is pending. Every other question, Mexico, war, peace, annexation, slavery, the tariff, the sub-Treasury, the Presidency, are all for the present submerged in the question, who will be clerk of the Housel Some any that Major French will yet aucceed? others that he has no possible chance ; some think Natlian Sargent will be the lucky man; iomi1 prefer Matthew St. Clair Clarke; others think that John C. Clark, of New York, will, by all meant), lie the nominee of the whig caucus, because of his doinga here as ChairmuQ of the document committee of the whigs in the campaign of 1840. But with all these men the iiuestion arises, how do they stand on the Wilmot proviso?do they go for the whole of Mexico, or for a part, or for none! If for the whole or a part, do they, severally or all oi them, go for the proviso ! it for no territory, do they go for indemnU ties, and if so, in what shape 1 It is said that the South Carolinians will not go for Mr. French, if biddings goes for him, nor tor hiiv man that Giddings does go for, even if it should be a son of Mr. Calhoun. But Mr. Giddings will not go for French?he is too savage a whig proviso man for that; on the other hand, we presume that he will vote for the whig nominee for clerk, even if it should be Mr. Calhoun himself, whatever may be his notions of the pro < >ne thine is pretty certain, the wings will elect a whig, if they can. But it is not so certain that they will have the force on hand to do it. The chances are in their favor, and the closeness of th? |anir, it they shall have the force, will, perhaps, induce th?*m to coalesce. They fight shy, as yet, with regard to their man, but we gather the idea front among 'hem, that John C. Clark will he a formidable candidate to all the rest? but that Major French is to be superseded, at all hazards, if possible. Mr. Winthrop will, it is generally admitted, be the caucus *hig nominee for speaker. and there is a general impression that he will be elected. Mr. Winthrop is a liberal politician, for Massachusetts, and would never agree to blow up the Union to get rid ol slavery. The Fremont court martial, aa you will see by your reporter's record, has adjourned over to Thursday, to allow time to the accused to manage his plan of defence, he.
