Mish Mametta Smith.?Quite an excitement wai caused, a few night* since, in consequence of the gup posed discovery of this young lady. One answering hei description, In every particular, called at a house o: doubtful character in Mercer street, and sought board The mistress of the house immediately informed ?e veral persons that a girl of the description of Miss S bad called at her house for board, and that she woulc be there the following evening. At the appointed time Several persons interested in her discovery repairet to the plaoe designated; but, to their disappointment she-did not make her appearance. They then west t< reveral other houses of like character?at every one o which they heard of the supposed Miss Smith, but shi could not be found. At a latk hour, they gave up th< search for the night, with a determination to prosecutt their tilorts until she wa* found. The following night th< search was recommenced and, at a latn hour, the objeci was found at a house in Houston street. So perfectly die eheanswerthe description that, but for an acquaint ance of the lost Misi Smith, who was present, sht would have been taken to the house of the disconsolate parents. The girl proved to be a oa?e similar to the om they sought. She wasvery much frightened, snppojint that she nad been discovered by her parents, and thai the officers of the law were about to restore her t? them She stated that she was from Connecticut, and hat been seduced from the house of her parents but a short time. That since she earns to the city, she discovered her paramour to be a married man; but as he had promised to support her, she would remain In the city.? Upon being asked if she would not Ilk* to return to th< house of her parents, she replied that she would rathei die. She refused to give her proper name, or the location of her late home. This is another of those casei in which a married man, a man who has a family o children, has been the ine-ius of seducin* from boraand happiness an innocent an 1 thoughtless girl am t-tiried torrow to the flrrtie'e he so wantonly invaded It is a pity that the names suoh men are not fount -oat. and they held up to public execration as previni wolves upon innocence and virtue. Hi- name will bi known despite all bis efforts at concealment. and pub licly embla/oned, that one of the gang of apparent^ gentlemanly libertine*, may receive the reward of hi' crime by deserved censure and reproach As tbe gir in question did not prove t? be Miss Smith, the genera impression ii that ?he has either left the city or is ye reoretsd in some vile hiding place unknown to th police.

This unfortunate man suffered the penalty of the law, on Friday of last week, in the village of * White Plains. There were about 2,000 persons ae? sembled in the vicinity of the court-house, to l|f witness the tragic scene, but many were doomed n I to disappointment. Tbe gallows, erected in the >e morning in front of the prisoner's cell, consisted >r of a platform elevated about one foot above the 't ground. On either side of the platform were two upright posts, Becurely braced, and a cross piece extending lrom one lo the other, about ten feet '* above the platform. From the centre of that & cross-piece hung the fatal rope. About 200 persons <r were assembled in the yard. ig At a quarter-past 2 o'clock, the wretched culf, prit, preceded by the sheriff, marched into the ? yard. With an unfaltering step he placed himself iinon the platform, and seated himself in a chair, * clothed in the habiliments of the grave, with the t halter around his neck.

Jsxue nf Stork?'lite Slave Stealing Cane?Improvements in ll'athin/ftim?A Br\>%arly Appropriation, fyc. fyc fyr. The California gold mania in again in the asceadunt, and bids fair to depopulate thin aide of the continent altogether. The account* of the immense riches to be acquired in tliia new El Dorado, instead of abating, are every day arriving in a more authentic shape, till even the most incredulous are compelled to believe. For several days past rumors have floated about that official despatches have been received nt the War Department, corro boruting all that we have heard on the subject; but as the Secretary of War refused to permit any one even to read these despatches, and aa we do not profess to belong to that tribe of correspondents known here as " the key hole genus," we refrained from giving publicity to mere rumors, which may or may not be correct. The Secretary of the N?vy, however, ha* very kindly permitted us to make some extracts from u private letter just received by him from California, and which contmns some interesting and corroborative information. The letter was written by a gentleman occupying an otticial position in Monterey, the Alcalde of the place, and the statements contained in it can be relied upon, just its much as if they were mude in an official character. It is as follows :? Mo*t?:hkv, Sept. 10, 1848. The citizens of California are very anxious for tha establishment of a branch mint in this territory. There is very little coined money la the country, and the consequence is. they are obliged to sell their grala and wheat at a ruinous sacrifice The custom home duties are all required to b? pa|4 in ooin, and this absorbs the little that still remains in circulation. The people are obliged to carry their grain gold in their lobs, corners of their pocket handkerchiefs, and in goore quills, for change, They want a United States mint, and have had many public meetings on the subject. It is calcalated that over two milllens of dollars ara taken out of the mines in gnin gold, per month? and this sum will be more than ipridrupled another season This grain gold is now shipped off In larga (|ii?ntitieo to Mexioe, Chili and Peru, where It will be coined under the insignia of those republics, and lost to the mutallo basis of our own circulating medium. This gold can bo securcd to our own oouulry only by a mint. Such an institution will bring th? grain gold at once to its intrinsic value, ami sustain It there ; and save the poor emigrants who get it out of the earth (rem the hands of speculators It will di more o cherish and sustain emigration, than the appropriation of million* for ordinary purposes, and will at tha same time swell immensely the aggregate of our national coin. The head of the emigrant column for the year haa already reached California They will throw themselves m maiir into the mines. There wllI also be a I large emigration from Oregon, and also from the Sand| wlch It lands. and there will ba a heavy tide over tha Isthmus an soon aa the ateamers are on their deUiaed track. When the wealth of these gold mines ia really known and belieTed, in tha United States, thera will not be wagons and steamers enough that aan ba spared to bring the emigrants here. Yon ara now all Incredulous?you reg rd our staterenti as tha dreams or an exoited imtgination ? but wbnt aeema to you mere Action, in a ?t??rn reality. It Is not gold in the clouds or In the sea. or in theeentre of a rock ribbed mountain, but in the soil of California, sparkling in the *un and glittering in ita atreama. It ilea on the open plain. In the ahadowa of the de?p ravines, and glowH on tne au mm Ita of the mountaina, whloh have lifted for agea their golden coroneta to heaven A* an evidence of the facility with *hioh it la procured, let one or two facta au<lioe. t . very pallor that now ahlpa from a port In California, geta hia $50 per month, and but very few can bn protured at thoae wagea. An offer of >100 a month would le re ?cted by nine-tenth* of thoae now engaged in tb? miner. They consider their labor there good for $-10 a day, and it often realizea tbem even more. K.veu the poor Indian, when you talk of hiring him. shake' hl< b.ig cf gold in your eyea. The conaeqi ence fa. we have no hired laborers. no servant* ; every muat blaok hia own boota Thla ia (fractical (Vmocraey ; no theory, do talking about equality. We are all on m level by that great law of circumstances which none can luriiiimnt The rounda of your ladder, it ia true, are of gold?but your neighbors' ladder runs just aa high. ?? * ? All the piize money Is in the hands of pursers of the Navy, and ia on ita way home, except 75, which baa been left here, and which I will bring io you in grain gold, freoh from the California mine. So much, at least, shall n'ach our mint We are proud of this mine ; ita vaat extent and riehness throws all other mines into the shade. It makes the fifteen or twenty milliona paid to Mexloo a feather in the opposite aoate. and rednoea even the expenaea of the war to a nominal fraction ?? *? Is not this description captivating ! Imagine, if you can, the appearance ol the California mountains, glistening in the rays of old Sol, not with eternal snows, but gorgeous, glittering gold!? Why, Milton. Goethe, Shaksiieare, Bvron, Scott, Southey, Campbell, or even N. P. Willis, never were brought to bed of an idea halt so sublime.? Pray, Mcttrt. let (>ratntrts cease to jaw any longer about the Wilmot proviso, or any othevproviso, and at once extend a territorial government over this delightful country. Establish, by all means, a mint there also, so that the Californians can have ths divine image of liberty impressed upon their sand, instead of compelling the unfortunate creatures to carry it about in goose quills, and the corners of pocket handkerchiefs. Senously.there can be no doubt but what large quantities of gold are found, and no one can say where the supply will cease. There is no reason to believe otherwise than that the whole vast mountain contain* beds of gold, either in a greater or less degree, and it is manifestly the duty of Congress at once to extend our laws over the country, and take possession, for the benefit of the Union, of these valuable lands. At present, it is a perfect scramble; if ihe land was taken possession of by the government and sold, it would not only regulate beneficially for the country itself the present mania, but would aflord a revenue by which the expenses of the war ronlii lie reimbursed. The amount of Mock issued go far this week on foreign account has been large. Some dMay takes place in the issue, in consequence of the great demand for coupon stock, which taksamuch longer to prepare than plain stock. The case of" Drayton, plaintiff in error, vs. the United States, defendant in error," which la being argued before the Circuit Court, has not yet bee* decided. The arguments, it is thought, will continue for some days yet. A good many improvements are being mad* throughout the city, in pursuance ot resolutions ot Congress. The gss pipes along "the Avenue are laid, and the street in front of the President's has beennaved. The old wooden railing, which surrounded the grounds connecting with the Departments, has been removed, and a tlimsy, miserable iron railing, embedded in wood, instead of stone, is being put up. The ex|>erisive economy of Congress is proverbial, and we are not therefore surprised to learn that this paltry railing is the best that could be furnished for the appropriation grant* ed?we would much prefer that the old wooden railing had remained. To he sure it whs a rotten a flair; hut still it looked more resectable, or rather less beggarly, thiin the ne w iron one. A report is in circulation, that the Hough and Ready Club ot tliis city, addressed a letter to Gen. Taylor, afrking it it was tiis intention 10 prnacriDenil the democratic ollioe holders; aud that General Taylor replied that he considered the letter as being grossly impertinent. We do not believe a wore of the statement. and give it merely as a specimen of the material of the reports Hying about.
