It ia to be presumed, that this is principally owing to the fact, that the public mind has been for the last two years, so accustomed to the strong excitement growing out of the delicate position of our foreign relations, that any mere domestic matter, is regarded as comparatively of trivial interest. Among both native and adopted citizens, there appears to be. at this moment, much more anxiety about the affairs of Ireland, than as to the result of the next Presidential election. 1 have before noticed the immense quantity ot business awaiting the action of Congress:?the Oregon bill, the California bijl, the appropriation bills, the measures tor earning the treaty with Mexico into efleot, and the reduction ot the army. It t-s. now, the fixed determination of a majority ?>i ttie Senate, at least, to remain in session until all those measures shall have been fullv acted upon. Allowing a reasonable time for the discussion of these measures, besides the host of sniallci ones, claiming the attention of Congress, the ssion will, necessarily, be protracted until late ii the fall; und yet Senators on both sides ol the chamber, are, at present, employed in searching tV- public records tor evidence against the candidate of their opponents, to be used on the stump in the approaching campaign. The absence of excitement in regard to General Taylor does not speak well for his success ; but yet in the present chaos of parties, it is impossible -1 - ?? ><>i? 1 i?ith onir nnnVAu/ik tn oai-toiiitl' IU prruici UIV icouii nnu 0117 u|?|r?vatu *v t-.uu.mj. On both tides the honest men form a very small minority of those very much interested in the success of either. The slavery question will be made a test question in the election?at least it is the present dis position of the majority to make it so, and for this purpose the California bill will be pressed forthwith. There can be no good reason for inserting an anti^slavery clause in the Oregon bill, for it is impossible slavery should ever exist there. It is, therefore, to be hoped the discussion will be postponed until the California bill shall come up for consideration, so as to permit the Oregon bill to pass at once. ""The premium obtained by the Secretary of the Treasury in the recent loan, is the largest ever obtained by this government.. Under the circumstances, it may be regarded as extraordinary. When Mr. Walker leaves the department it will be difficult to find a person to keep it at the high standard to which he has raised it. It must break down. It is full time there was another department, combining the patent office, the Indian office, the land office, lighthouses, the coast survey, and all such affairs that are foreign to the business of the several departments to which they are at present attached. It will be impossible to avoid doing this at the end of this Presidential term. Giirmun. Washington, June 21, 1S43. Jtcrnt. The Senate had an early executive session today, and no matters of general interest were publicly considered. Mr. Niles introduced a bill providing for the establishment of the English penny postage (two cents) system in the I inted Mutes. lie would not urge the bill this session, but simply introduced it, with a view of eliciting the public judgment upon it against the next session. Mr. Ntles is determined to leave the Senate with his colors, and those of Mr. Merrick, his predecessor in the post oflice, flying all over the ship. We wish hint success. The Oregon bill lies over, awaiting the return of Mr. Douglass. The Senate appear to shrink from that wilmot proviso, as from the handling of a porcupine. Crutchett's long pole and lantern, on the top of the great dome of the Capitol has to come down. The workmen are fixing their ropes and tack lings for the purpose of removing the experiment. We are sorry Mr. Crutchett did not follow our advice last summer, by giving up that moonshine notion. But he would not. Of course we knew nothing; and so he went on. What has been the result! He lias lost money; and as n truly scientific man in the matter of gas lights, he lias failed of that credit to which he is entitled for his gas arrangements in the Capitol: and failed because of that bird-killing eye-sore, that long pole and lantern. The sword presented by the citizens of Charleston, and the belt by the ladies of said city, are now to be seen in the library of Congress. The sword, the gold scabbard, and the belt, are ornamented with various devices appertaining to Oregon and California?manufactured by Ames, of Massachusetts, and finished in the etchings, Arc., by a firm in Charleston. A beautiful present, and a welldeserved one. Music at the President's grounds this afternoon. We shall perhaps, if not this evening, on some early occasion, send you a profile of this re-union, which will answer for the whole season. Washington, June 21st, 1848. The Boundaries of Texas?A Struggle?Diplomatic Intercourse?The Medicine Bill?Lieutenant Colonel Fremont. Last week a bill was reported from the Committee on the Post Office and Post fioads, establishing certain post routes in the several States. Provision was therein made for Texas, but it was not satisfactory to the representatives of that State, aid, at their instance another clause was inserted. ' bill was ordered to be engrossed for a third . adimr : hut the true nature of the amendment being discovered, u motion was inade to recon? "!cr the vole by which the hill was ordered to he engrossed. This question came uj> this morning. Mr. Vinton suggested a proviso, to the etlect that nothing contained in the hill shall affect the boundaries of new rftaiee which may come into the I nion. and formed ot territory acquired by the recent treaty between the I nited States and Mexico. It will be recollected that Congress, several years ago, extended the revenue laws and post office laws to Corpus Christi, beyond the Notices, and this was quoted by the President of the I'nited States as an argument that Congress had recognized our right of jurisdiction to the Bio Grande. With regard to the hill to which reference has been made, it was suspected that the amendment would affect even Santa Ke. in New Mexico, and give occasion hereafter for insisting on the claim that that place belongs to Texas: and besides, it would be fixing, in a post route bill, the boundary of that State! The House refused tore-consider the vote by which the bill was ordered to be engrossed, the speaker vru tcm., (Mr. Burt) voting in the negative, and making a tie which caused the question to be lost. The chairman of the |*ost office committee (Mr. Goggin), preferred tliHt the bill should he lost rather flian passed with the objectionable amendment of the Texas representative, and moved to lay it on the table. By a vote of !fl to 104, the motion was disagreed to. The previous question was moved and seconded?100 to H7. The question recurred, "shall the main question be now put V which, it sustained, would bring the House to a vote upon the passage of the bill the objectionable amendment and all. Mr. White enquired i! the hill had been engrossed. The Speaker replied ihat it had not. Mr. White objected to the question being put. The Speaker said that Mr. While was right, according to the rules; and so the Mouse, by a vote ol ]l(0 to K7, determined. The subject was passed over until to-morrow. In the committee of the whole, to-day, the general appropriation bill being under consideration, Mr. Ifilliurd proposed several amendments, viz:? Instead of a charge d'affaires at Austria, a commissioner to China, and a minister resident at Constantinople, these officers to be changed to ministers plenipotentiary, with a salary ot $!>,0U0 attached to each. This will involve an increase ot expenditure of only $10,500 over the money now paid. Mr. ililliaid also designs to change all the charges to ministers resident; pay instead ot $4,500 to be $0,000. He made an aide speech in supjairt of his amendments. The hill to prevent the importation of studs called medicines, came back from the .Senate, and, without debate, the amendments were concurred in. Lieut. Col. Fremont is making preparations for his expedition towards Oregon and Upper California. to complete explorations which were interrupted by the war with Mexico. He w ill go on his own private account, and take with him twenty picked men. He will start early in July from this city, and will cross the II ckv Mountains before the snows set in. The beautiful and highly interesting map ot Oregon and Upper California, made by Mr. Preuss, from the notes and observations of the Colonel, is in the hands ol the engraver, ar.d the memoir to accompany it is nearly all in type. This work will he worth more than all the trash ordered by Congress during the present session, and will live, for years to come, as n monument to the skill ol the young and dauntless adventurer ; and beside, the emigran'S to our fardistant possessions will consider themselves his debtor lor having pointed out to thetn the distances, the best places to wood, water, and search for food, and for other information not to be procured jrom any other source. ! , * JjSWBte!!"* ! f&'taSisamustts U kan?MiT??alr i few If U UMU Mly i?U*r 1 Thslr Jtarmsay ui Br***m*i? ?f axopsratU* 11 i a mattsr of oouno, Not ao with tho froa toil, or ; white man's resolution people. They do not coalesce so readily; and deducting their force from the two great parties, they seem to be steadily coalescing to an independent organization. Will they hold out! Will they go on? It will be for them to decide. General Cass has defined his attitude on the proviso. It is, non-interference. It is leaving the question to the inhabitants of the territories. 1 That would ds very well but tor tnis impediment ' to the barnburners. In the interval to the organij zation of a new territorial government by the people on this question, the people of the South may form a slaveliolding nucleus?say, for instance, in I California. Moreover, South Carolina and AlaI hama, claim that neither a territory, nor Congress, as the sovereignty of a territory, lias any power over the question of slavery in a territory ; but though it is open, and the territory is open to all the citizens of all the States, and all their property until such territory becomes a State, in which capacity alone it has jurisdiction over the question of slavery. The position of General Cass, then, does not satisfy Alabama, or South Carolina: but as fur as it goes, it is a concession which does not satisfy the Proviso men of the North. It displeases them, because it is a concession upou a question upon which the Ordinance party will admit of no concession. For us, or against us, is their idea. General Cass does not then answer their demands. Hpw is it with General Taylor I He is silent, and he is a slaveholder, and therefore equally unsatisfactory in the conjectures to be made of his reul sentiments and intentions. From the platform of his Allison let ter, he would sign a bill abolishing slavery in the District of Columbia ; but would also sign a bill on the same day establishing slavery in California. If, then, the declaration of Mr.Kiles, in his letter to the Barnburners, amounts to any thiug, it amounts to Ibis: That the proviso party cannot sustain either General Cass or General Taylor, without disgracing their professions and themselves in the estimation of every body. Such is the opinion of the late mass meeting at Cincinnati. This meeting, more than any thing else, goes to show that while the party presses at the North are acting in obedience to their respective conventions, a very large proportion of the people are acting definitely upon the proviso, as more impera live me uiciuni 01 any convention, ana as me paramount and pre-eminent principle of the campaign. All the Northern States have urged the proviso upon Congress. We Know of no exception. Some have done it unanimously, all by overwhelming majorities, in their legislatures. There must be a stroug, general, and fixed public sentiment on this question to produce such uniform expressions upon it. Such appears to be the case. Now, sir, were these State resolutions superceded by the HCtion of the Baltimore and Philadelphia conventions! Does the non-interference policy adopted at said conventions change the popular sentiment in the North to such an extent as to merge it into the doctrine of non-intervention! Such does not appear to be the case. On the other hand, while the presses, and the leaders of both parties are tardily coming in, and urging their respective candidates to the North, the sentiments of the North is heaving like a ground swell, under the apparent subsiding agitation upon the surface of the political salt lake. What, then, is the prospect! It is that we shall have one or two proviso tickets in the field, which may neutralize the North, as between General Cass and General Taylor, and throw the election into the House of Representatives. If the contest were simply between Gen. Cass and Gen. Taylor, the result would not admit ol a doubt. But as between Gen. Cass, Gen Taylor, and the Proviso, it does not admit of a doubt. It admits of three doubts:? 1. Will the proviso people be able to effect an organization, including whigs and barnburners 1 2. Or will each faction be able to effect an organization of its own 1 3. Without any organization of a joint or separate ticket, will the provisoists vote for either Cass or Taylor! Until these questions are settled, we hold in abeyance all estimates of the probable vote of New England, New York, and Ohio, on the seventh ol November. The Oregon bill, with the horrid appendage of the proviso, still lies on the table in the Senate. The case is urgent. The Indians have risen, and are in open war with the white settlers of Oregon; and mutual extermination is impending, and yet the bill lies upon the table. The .Senate stand a;>palled before it. They know not what to do. They know that Mr. Calhoun will demand a specific decision. Even Hale may be disposed to drop the proviso upon this bill; but Mr. Calhoun appears determined to make it the question of the present session, from which there shall be no escape. Scarcely less important than the action of the proviso people in the North, will be the action of Congress upon this question. An impression is, that the South will gain the day in Congress, upon the Oregon bill; but then there are the appropriations upon the treaty with Mexico, and the provisional governments for the territories acquired by said treaty. Put all these things together, and no man can count to a certainty upon either the election of Gen. Cuss or Gen. Taylor. Another thing. We feel authorised to say that Mr. Clay will take no active part in this campaign. The wings having dropped hiin, he will let them takecare of themselves. lie will make no ratification speeches in support of Gen. Taylor, if we are correctly advised; and our information is from an intimate personal friend of Mr. Clay. We expect to keep up our guerrillero warfare on this matter of the Presidency, without distinction of party preferences. The Doctor. Baltimore, June 22, 1848. A Youthful Temperance Demonstration?The Old United States?Mr. Burton?Baltimore Barnburners, fye. The cadets of temperance, composed of boys between twelve and fifteen years of age, a kind of initiatory sceool for the formation of full grown Sons of Temperance, had a crand parade vester (lay, to the number of about 1000, with sashes, banner?, badges, and several bunds of music, making quite an imposing spectacle. They proceeded to a beautiful grove in the vicinity, and were addressed by General Cary, of Ohio, the Grand Sachem of the Sons of Temperance. The I'nited States Hotel, on I'ratt street, the favorite stopping place of Mr. Webster and all the great guns of Congress in passing through this city, has passed into the hands of Messrs. Guy and l)utton,two of the most rlFicient caterers for the comfort and appetite of the wav-worn traveller. They have refitted and furnished the house in magnificent style. A man named Henry McOee, was killed on Tuesday by falling off the platform of a railroad car, between this city and Frederick, whilst in rapid motion. Mr. Burton made his appearance last night at the Front street theatre, as Sfir Robert Hramble, and as a matter of eourse, drew a full house. Th?whole piece was played to admiration, and the entertainment was most decidedly the beet that has been ofiered in Baltimore for some time. There is another speck of harnhurnerism springing up in this city, with regard to the sheriffalty, the friends of the unsuccessful candidate for the democratic convention refusing to support Mr. Cloud, who will, undoubtedly, be the nominee. They assert that lire result was produced by parking the ward meetings, which is undoubtedly the case; but it is no less true that both the Davit 8 men and the Cloud men did their best in this line, and the latter out-packed the former, notwithstanding the organized aid of the office-holders in all sections of the city. PHTLAIIKt.PI! I A, June 22, 1848. Dettrurtive Hail Storm. We had a terrific storm in this vicinity yesterday, accompanied with hail stones as large as hickory nuts. The latter, however, seems to have been confined to a track of about half a mile in width, ami the wind that attended it has occasioned great damage as far as heard from. Trees were torn up by the roots, limbs twisted off and strewed along the streets in the lower section of Southwark and Moyamensing, half 11 dozen houses unroofed, arid their walls partially demolished. The grain below the city has been entirely proHtrated, and the hail has ruined a great amount of the stock on the truck farms. One man alone has lost ten thousands head of cabbage. All the windows of a row of houses facing the west between Carpenter and Christian street, were broken by the hail. Fortunately the violence of the storm did nut extend over much space, or there would doubtless have been some loss of life. Meetings to devise means of aiding Yucatan are being held in New Orleans. It is ' X|>eeted that large numbers of volunteers will be found willing to undertake an enterprise there as soon as our < soldiers from Mexico arc paid oil'and discharged. 1 MMMMMBHiMiMnWHaM am ? tftttai Iwm ton, M tftJVfrl {A tfaftwrttMtfHtf ^ ifcl .. w??rw Mt*# ?0H M n I kin irTlMi an Wm fta??4* I m?Mi MM |ftMl \?nSr?

Tltisground is impregnable; the troops ol the line, the regular troops, can make no impression upon it. Their batteries opened early in the morning and their best guns were charged with Braudreth's best pills, but they don't make nn impression. The barnburners are self confessed invalids, but they don't like Brandreth's prescriptions?they want the hydropathic treatment. Martin Van Buren, in his masterly Iptter to the Convention, takes an open position. Dix, lie thinks, is in ambush, and has not courage enough to show himself to the enemy. But Martin shows his hands?paints, and all. You are uwurt that there is an impression abroad that the Convention will ntBke no nominations, but this impression is a false one. The Convention will adopt the advice of Martin Van Buren. He urges the necessity of a nomination, and his arguments in favor of it arc unanswerable and overwhelming. He has written a bold, and manly, and powerful letter ; it is a document worthy of Pitt in his palmy days. It is written with skill und care ; it will withstand and outlast the criticisms of his bitterest enemies. It will give a terrible impulse to the movement which is being utude in the North against the South. There is danger in it?danger to the Union. This letter is broad enough. Upon the principles which it maintains, a great Northern party will plant itself, and in 1S5'2, that party will triumph. There is no need of disguising or denying the fact, that these men are becoming more hostile to the South. They say that the South has had mure than its share of Presidents. Hereafter this party will abandon all the issues and tests but this: Is the candidate lor the 1're idency in favor of entrusting the South with the administration of the government, or is lie not ! Ifhe is, | we will resist his election ; ifhe is not, we will ranpOK it. This will In' tin-test. A number of States will be represented in the Convention ; there are delegates present from Ohio, Illinois, Wisconsin, Connecticut, and so ?e other States. There is a disposition in several quarters to postpone this Convention to some future day, in order tliat all the States thut wish to unite in the movement, may have ail opportunity to do so. Hut this proposition will not prevail; nearly all the barnburnerdelegatesto Baltimore are here; among others, Preston King, Win. C. Grain, John If Beekman, Benjamin Tilden, Arc., Arc. There is a spontaniety ol feeling among them; they will " stand up to the rack, loddcr or 110 todder. Ttie Convention will assemble 111 the Baptist church to-morrow at twcjve. Martin Van Buren will be the nominee for President, and Marcus .Morton, of Massachusetts, or Senator Dodge, of Wisconsin, tor Vice President. I am very confident that these will be tile nominations. Mr. Van Buren will decline, but the Convention will insist upon its right to command his services, and he will be forced to accept?nolens voltns. Martin V?n Buren will get a strong vote in this State. His friends only hope to throw the election into the House of Representatives, and they will omit no efforts to accomplish this object. An address and resolutions will be adopted by the Convention. I am informed that thev were drawn up under the direction of Martin Van Buren.

There has been a revolution in France, (if report be true;) another in Ituly; another nmong the German confederacies, and so 011. The veryworld seems agog with noise and tumult, and change. There has been a revolution in the press, originated and undertaken and carried to a successful result by the Jhraht, yes, by the Herald. amidst the opposition of the bankrupt weeklies, and against the whole force of their virulent influence. The moment, however, the Herald had fought and gained the battle, there were a host ot lOUrnals ready to come in arid share the sitoila with the victor. ** Tny, lllanch and Sweetheart" no longer barked. The opposition was gradually ' hauled off," and the motto of your journal has since been Sir iter ad attra ! This is my preface. Think not that 1 had 110 design in introducing the subject of revolutions. We, too, here at Coney Island, have had a revolution ! fcdart not, tremble not?but it is true. A revolution, not an emeute, has brought this to pass, that Coney Island henceforth is to become a place of fashionable resort?'tis even so. The glory of Gil Itavis has departed, unless he will consent to divide territory, and no longer claim jurisdiction over the fashionable inmates of the Oceanic House. We will be generous in the very flush of victory, liven now our terms shall be worthy of a gallant victor and a brave toe. Ws would say to the late Governor,? " old Timotheus yield the prize.

Coney Isiand, then, is the place of fashionable resort for this summer. Already, (and it is but little past the middle of June,) does our number reach to fifty, and the cry is still, they come.

During that time they became quite intimate, and were together a good deal. On Monday morning they departed together, taking the Kinder!)ook roaa towasds Albany. The Italian was not seen again; but a short time alter they left the tavern, the irishman was seen alone, with the organ in his possession, and playing on it.

uic exception 01 me com ui iiic present patent oilice building, to which the olhce contributed $llfc>,0i)0ot its own fundd, it hag never been a charge upon the treasury. Nearly all of ltd revenues (says the commissioner) lire derived from inventors. It is sustained by their contributions; its services are appropriated to the promotion of their particular interests, although rendered to all interests when required ; and it may, therefore, truly he regarded as the head and representative ol inventive genius and the industnul arts of the country. The annual reports of the two principal examiners, giving a view ol the inventions and improvements which have passed their respective desks, set forth an interesting summary of the scientific operations of the olhce during the past year, thus presenting 111 a small space a most conclusive and gratifying proofs of the progress of out countrymen in the improvement of the most useful arts. The peculiar circumstances of society in this country, growing oui of its settlement, very recent when compared with the age of other civilized portions of the earth, and imposing the necessity of subjugating the forest, of smoothing down the ragged face of nature and ol planting upon its bosom the arts of industry, which have rapidly germinated and developed them^eives into grrat and important interests, now flourishing with u vigoi and energy which enable thein to become the formidable rivals of similar interests of older nations?have tended to stimulate the inventive genius of our utilitarian and labor sav ing character, rather than to the pursuit of more scientific discovery. Hence, while we may be behind other countries in the discovery and developeinent of scientific principles, we are probably equal with, if not lu advance of them, in tlieir application to the useful purposes of life. But if the genius of our countrymen is not now so much ubsorbed in the investigation of abstract science, as that of the citizens of older and more opulent countries, the circumstances of society so rapidly improving by the steady tide of prosperity which sets in our favor, will soon place us in 11 condition to contribute our share to tlie sum of knowledge which the combined genius and labors of the earned of all civilized nations annually bestow upon mankind. During the year 1S40 the number of applications tor patents was 7(i5, the number of caveats filed was 228, and the number of patents granted was 475. From this it appears that the business ol the patent cilice has increased one hundred per cent within the last eijjht years. On examining the tabular estimates of the agricultural report for 1847, says the Commissioner, it appears that while some of the crops interior in value and amount, have remained nearly stationary, or, perhaps, slightly diminished, the great staple products of home agriculture have steadily increased; thus furnishing as usual, ample provision for domestic consumption, and an additional surplus tor exportation; and in alluding to the potato rot, lie says:?The deprivation and suffering which it lias inflicted 011 the people ot other countries, have revealed the great resources of tnis, and demonstrated its capacity to supply the Wants and demands of other nations to any extent which can bt? reasonably anticipated. It was, indeed, a spectacle grate nil to humanity, and sublime to contemplate, to see our fertile and prolific country, opening its rich stores of agricultural products to teed the famishing millions of other nations, and to arrest the strides of appalling and inexorable famine which was sweeping them by thousands to the grave; selling to those who had the means ot purchasing, and generously giving, without money or price, to those who had not. The quantity of grain of all kinds, exported during the commercial year, ending August 31st, H47, was 41,2711,908 bushel*. Of this quantity, lf),7tid,57h bushels was wheat, and 20,6J0,6B4 bushels Indian corn; the remainder being rye, barley and outs. And yet this large quantity sent to toreigu countries, did not exhaust our surplus products by millions of bushels. The Commissioner on this subject, states, that while he was 011 a tour through several of tne States bordering 011 the jjreut Western lakes, during the last summer, he found the depots of grain, the remains of the crops of 184ti, liiled to overflowing, and all the avenues of transportation choked up with the immense quantities which were pouring in through them to the Atlantic coast, to seek markets abroad. The report is accompanied by some very interesting notices of patented inventions, of which we give the following abstract:? Agriculture.?Number of patents granted, 43. In agricultural pursuits a marked disparity is exhibited between this and every other country. * * * In the husbanding of tanning resources we are much behind European nations; and even, perhaps, that singular people the Chinese ; while, in variety, extent, anil utility of labor-saving iu-trumeuts, for agiiculture, we greatly excel. * * * The whole number of patented inventions in this country, belonging to this class of agriculture, is 2,043. I11 this class are included, not only the various instruments for tilling the earth, entering and gathering crops, anil preparing them for market, but also every implement and machine belonging to the comprehensive subject of rural economy. Chemistry.?Number of patents granted, 45. pitlly than any other of the presentday, its application to the arts, in a measure, keeps pace ; and the pist year exhibits an interesting catalogue of inventions under this class. But little credit can be claimed for our own country in the advancement of the science of ctiemistry, in comparison with Germany, France, Sweden, and England. But while we admit the deliciency, and plead the infancy ot our institutions, us the most obvious and natural apology,we are warranted, upon facts, in claiming pre-eminence in the application of chemistry to the arts ; and tins without necessarily urrogating genius, as our advancement, in this latter respect, is, perhaps, due to that very condition which we have pleaded for our backwardness in science. The foreign applications under thi9 class have been tew, and two ol die patented inventions, presenting uncommon interest, were Irom citizens ot the United Slates rending Mathematical and Philosophical Ins rat mknts. ?Number of patents granted, (i; arnoiigst wiiicn may be enumerated an important improvement 111 tlie mariner's compass, and for the invention of u self-adjusting pendulum, by which the necessity of carefully levelling a clock i.s dispensed with.

Household Fitrnititre?Embracing improvements in cotton mattresses, a new sofa table, rocking chair and fan, Arc. Number of patents granted, 21. Fink Arts?Number of patents granted, 19. Under this head are embraced musical instruments, printing presses and inking machines, punted lloor cloths, Arc. Surokry?Number of patents granted, 17. Under this class are included many inventions not strictly of a surgical character, such as machines for excercisina, swings, and baby jumpers, inventions for artificial incubation, and subjects of a physiological character, inhalation of ether, chloroform, ivc.

The process is wholly mechanical, ?nd is intended to separate gold, which ia not chemically condoned with other substances, but simply mixed with them. Cnpptr.?One patent granted within the past year, for an improved process for reducing copper ores. Iron.?Three patents granted for obtaining iron from the orea. Steel.?Several patents granted for improvements in ovens, or furnaces and forges, for the manufacture of steel; slso for improvement in welding cast iron to steel, or wrought iron.

Numerous patents have been granted lor improvements in nemp-brakera, macniuery for cleuuiug cotton; baruing, carding, and combing wool; making hats; doubling and twisting thread; improved methods ol folding and measuring cloths, dec. Steam and other Gas Enoines.?About thirty pateuts liuve been granted within the yeur. for improvements in steam engines, comprehending modifications of many of the features of that important machine. So much ingenuity has been exercised upon the steam engine for such a length of time, that as might be expected, but few oi me improvements amount to anything more than slight refinements upon what has hitheito been done. The number of patents grunted in tins country, and in Europe, for improvements in the steam ennine is almost incredible; but it should be recollected, that these improvements ure not conlined to the general character of the machines, but are connected also with its adaptation to the multifarious purposes to which it is applied, aud the endless variety of circumstances in which it is placed?so that many modifications which would be absolute disadvantages for some purposes, would not only be patentable, but of the highest importance in others. Navigation and Marine Implements.?About twenty patents tor improvements comprehended in this class, have been granted within the yeur, some of which appear to be very desirable. The mass of these improvements, however, are not such as to claim particular attention in this place, although calculated to operate well, and upon principles slightly different froin such as have previously been known. Great utility cannot be expected in every patentable modification ; but the vast importance of the lew will easily reconcile us to the many., It is olten observed, also, that a novel modification, from which little or no benefit seams derivable, is frequently the first step towards the most imoortsrit results. Civil and Architecture.?Upwards of twenty patents for improvements tn civil engineering and architecture nave been granted wnliin the year, embracing improved excavators and ditching machines, switches for railroads, clearing snow from the trucks, new apparatus for ascending and descending inclined planes by locomotives and their trams; also, in machines for drilling rocks, deepening channels. Arc. Land Conveyance.?Upwards of thirty patents lor improvements belonging to this class have been granted within the past year, m ine of which arc of considerable importance. Hydraulics and Pneumatics.?Upwards of twenty patents have been granted within the year tor improvements belonging to the class of hydraulics and pneumatics, very few of which can be particularly noticed. These subjects have s? long exercised the ingenuity ot inventors, that little el.-e appears possible, but to reliuc upon what has air ady been done. Mills, Mechanical Movements, &c.?Near'y twenty .patents for improvements in machinery belonging to this class have been granted with n the year. Many of these "improvements" wouid, however, perhaps be more appropriately denominated changes, as they uppear to promise but little utility. Lumber and Machinery for Working Therein ?About thirty patents have been granted this year for improvements belonging to this class. It comprehends a great variety ot machinery, to which important additions are annually made. Machines for working lumber have already attained so high a degree of perfection, that almost every variety of form may, with the greatest facility, be produced and finished by them. Vet the march is onward towards a still higher degree of perfection. I* ire Arms and Implements ok War.?This class is less comprehensive and diversilied thun the others, and, of course, presents fewer subjects for inventions. It has, however, during the past year, received considerable attention ; and although the number of patents is much less than in the other classes, yet they are more numerous than usual, and, on the whole, the improvements possess more than average importance. Miscellaneous.?In addition to the foregoing classes, about twenty patents of a miscellaneous character have been granted during the past year, embracing improved lire escapes, twine stands, machines for cutting and raising ice, making brushes, baskets, tfcc. < Sllwellaneoui. The schooner San Jacinto was struck by lightning while lying at the dock in Albany on Tuesday evening. The inasts were considerably injured. Religious services were to lie held on board the bark Catalpa, at llooton, at eight o'clock on Thursday morning, on the embuication of Rev. Mr. Foote und his wife, missionaries f.>r Syria, under the direction of the American Hoard. During the storm on Tuesday evening, six of the telegraph posts, a few miles south of Greenhush, opposite to Albany, were destroyed by lightning. A lady was delivered of a fine boy while riding in a South Boston omnibus, on Wednesday afternoon. The extensive drag warehouse of Mr Allen, in Filth street. Cincinnati, was destroyed by fire on die night of the 20th inst. Loss, $20,000. Insured tor $8,000. The Aoawam Rank Counterfeits.?George M. Gibson, a broker in Change Avenue, and Robert Brewster and Charles C. Lincoln, working jewellers, all people of respectability, and the last a young man who has recently served out his time with Mr. Whitom of Court Square, have been arrested for passing und having in their possession counterfeit bills of the Agawant Bank, Springfield. I Lincoln, who was first arrested for attempting ts pass a bill in Hanover-street, informed of Brewster, who had sold him the counterfeits, and Brew| ster staled that he purchased his lot of Gibson, at ' the rate of forty-eight counterfeit dollars for ten dollars good money. One bill of $11, and two counterfeit half eagles, were found upon Gibson, j one of the latter at bis house in South Boston. Yesterday nfiernoon they were brought before the police, court, and having waived an examination, were ordered to recognize?Gibson and Brewster in the sum of $2,000 each, and Lincoln in $500. The last found bail, the others were committed.? Boston Courier, June 22. Treaty with the Pawnee Indians.?The stenmboat Mississippi, Cant. Van Bleet, arrived at St. Louis ironi FortChilds, which is two miles above Fort Harney on the upper Missouri, on the 21st inst. The Oregon battalion was there on the 1st ilist. Col. Powell has made a treaty with the Pawaces, who have ceded to the United States Grand Island for the establishment of a fort. The Pawnees were in a very distressed condition from the want of provisions. They were afraid to hunt, being at war with all the surrounding tribes. Col. i Powell had provided for their protection. From the Western Emigrants.?Mr. Shaw arrived here on Monday last from Fort John on Platte liver. On his way in he met about 300 wagons of Oregon and California emigrants, and 200 wagons of Mormons. All were getting on > well. The first company was about 600 miles from ihe settlements, and the hist one about 150 miles. V company of California emigrants, numbering 1 ibout sixty, had a little difficulty with the Paw- 1 uses, hilt no |ierson was injured. From the best information we can gather, the emigration this eason to Oregon nnd California will not exceed three hundred and fifteen wagons?about sixteen hundred souls. The Mormons are leaving Catnp Israel in large numbers, and at this time ii| ward of six hundred wagons have left for the Salt Lake, riie outbreak among the Indians will not deter i th'-m from crossing the plains this season, as they ire anxious that all their brethren should get to- , 'fiber as soon as possible.
