Ths Klertlon of United States Senator? Double-fared Demagogulsm. We remember reading a Btory in one ol the middle-age romances, which gave a thrilling account of a monster with a lace before and a tace behind, who lived on the shores of a fresh-water lake, in a remote district ot a certain kingdom; and whose method of existing was to collect troops of young boys, whom he fed and fattened in a menagerie, and then devoured. The fattest and heat were taken to hia kitchen, and cooked for his dinner; and those of the little fellows who would not fatten, were put in some out-house and hashed, to be afterwards used as food for the hounds of the i double-faced monster, preparatory to their being taken out on a fox-hunt. This curious freak of the wild literary taste, in a comparatively wild age, is more illustrative of the character of politicians in a more enlightened one, and of the present time, than might perhaps strike the mind of the casual observer at first. For tne last twenty-five years, Martin Van Burrn, of Kinderbook, haa been the double-faced monster of the democratic party in this State. When he was m the pursuit of power, and in the enjoyment of the spoils of office, he was only picking up and feeding the small boys and girls of the party?patting them on the cheek, and caress- I ing them, until they had attained a sufficient i growth to be butchered, dressed, and cooked tor i his democratic table. For many years, this system of iat living on the democratic party was en- , joyed ; but when it Could no longer furnish hue iat ( subjects, the double-faced monster sent the whole ( family to the shambles, and had them dressed and ] cooked, to gratify his blood-hounds previous to a race. Allegoiy aside?when ihe democratic party of New York could no longer feed Mr.Van Buren, l he turned round and stabbed them to the heart, and J destroyed their ascendancy, as we have seen in i the recent election. ' a brief history of one double-faced political monster in New York; and now that the whig par. ty is in the ascendant in this State, a similar history is about to be developed, in the election of a counterpart of that double-faced monster, in elevating Wm. H. Seward to the ^United States Se nate by the whigs in Albany. In speaking thus of Nr. Seward, we do not do so without having tacts to sustain us in what we assert. During the last canvass, this double-taced demagogue, while he was making speeches apparently in favor of Gen. Taylor lor the presidency, was engaged at the same time in wntiog private letters, stabbing his prospects and character in the dark, and laying a foun- ( dation lor a junta in the whig, similar to that by which Mr. Van Buren reached power in the de- , mocratic party, and ultimately to destroy it when it was no longer useful to his purposes. Here is J the evidence complete. In the Rochetter Daily t Democrat we finds letter written by Seward in ? August of last year, at the most critical period of o the canvass, addressed to solve an inquiry mads jj by E. J. Fowls, D. B. Bissell, and Eli Sheldon:? n Acbcss, Aug 30, 1848 ? My Dear Sir:?On my arrival here this morning, ? after speeding two weeds at Livingston and Senaea B counties, I had the pleasure of finding your letter of * the 22d lost. The oontents of that communication ex J cited my surprise. Having happened to be In Albany J| two weeks ago, or perhaps three. Mr. Weed showed me a letter Irom yeu, containing the agreeable Informs- v tlon that the political discontents In your oounty had *j subsided and that the whigs were rallying to the etan- ?' dard of the cause Your letter to me Is eo full of de* * spondency that it makes me hope that It proooeded w from only a depression of spirits, naturally enough produoed by the Inappropriate and unseasonable letters of our candidate for President. # B: 1 perceive, as yon do. the mlsehlevoat effect* of the eI letters to which you re fur. But I am obliged to ao- " knowledge that I expert the disorganization of the lo- '* ccfoco party will, In some degree, Impair our own or- 11 sanitation. al H For mote tbwn ten years, I have looked to the day of M ripening of conscience on the subject of slavery, to whleh yon refer, end have endeavored to do what was In my power to pr-pate the whig party to profit by it, a not for mere personal or partisan end*, but for the to at the ftonntrv *rfi hnmBnli. V? a. as? - * K'U KII0V IDH ?T?rj eoncssMon to or tor lUvary by tha whig party,for Hi ton y?ar? part, bar boon a triumph over ui "J Vsry raapactfally your frisail, Ci WILLIAM H. SEWARD. " Is not this a curious document 1 Can Mr. Sew- c< ard dray the authenticity ot this letter, as he did ? th.t of the letter addressed to Mr. Hawley, an epistle which, after all, amounts to little, whether V authentic or otherwise I Here we see ex-Governor Seward perambulating the country, proteasing to 1 make speeches in favor of the election ot General c Taylor, and at the same time writing letters in- ^ suiting to the sentiments of the President elect? d depreciating the native energy of his mind, and 11 using him for the purpose of laying a foundation * and iorming the citadel of a junta in ake whig party, by which to rule it herealter, aa Mr. Van 2 Buren had the democratic party, and ultimately, if ^ necessary, to push the slavery question to the great- n est lengths, e?en to a disruption, or what would o: be equivalvnt to it, of the Union. Here is a specimen of a double-faced demagogue, whose ^ principles of action are precisely- similar to those ^ of the double-faced monster whose history is ir recorded in the romance alluded to. It anything m produced a durable and lasting impression ott the pubko aund, ot the qualifications and fitness ot or General Taylor for the Pr? sidency, it was ihe ?im- to plioity, the honesty, the directness and the good sense which characterized the letters em in it- ^ ing from him during the canvass All the epistles hi which came direct from the General himself, bore or unequivocal niaiks of bi? vigorous intellect. Thorn [J] only which were supposed to have originated with in the polit cians of the day, tell wun !> ?.-? tore-- on ^ the publio mind Still we see this Mr Seward, mL.Ic ajf iiicLi'j ' 'i'h: titr A 7 z.t. fiU "ajlor, preparing by these secret stabs a platform n which to rule the whig party, as far aa this *tate is concerned, and join in a similar junta at iVashinton. C It is supposed by irianr tha' nothing can prevent he return of Mr. Seward to 'he Senate of the niied States. The junti ut Albany, it would ap>ehr, have made arrangement*, with great force ,nd circumspection, for that purpose; and leading members of the whig party, in every section, are ' <o rabidly hunting alter the spoils to come lork aid and express their sentimeula against thrlection of such a monster in politics. In this city not a single whig journal dare lift its finger in oposition, or tell the truth; out of it, the shackles id the press of that party are even stronger and .eavfer. We therefore exj>ect to see by the elec* ion of ex-Governor Seward, the election of a poitical junta of which he will be the centre?one bat will rule the whig party with a rod of iron, 'at up its power and influence, and when that is lone, cast it to the dogs, precisely in the wav i/^nnfn/1 fnuranla (Via rlomnnrutm nnrfu Kt/ fliu I rlnil. ble-laced politician, Martin Van Buren, of Kinderhook. Onondaga Salt Spbing.?We have received a copy of the Annual Report of the Superintendent of the Onondaga Salt Springs, made to the House of Assembly, on the 10th inst. This interesting report on one of the most important branches of our manufactures and pro- 1 ducts, is now before us. We present our readers 1 with a synopsis of the most important statements I it contains. It appears that the whole quantity of salt manufactured on the reservation during the last year, has been four million seven hundred 1 thirty-seven thousand one hundred twenty-six 1 bushels, being seven hundred eighty-five thousand ' seven hundred and seventy-four bushels more than last year. The several places at which this amount of salt has been produced and inspected, are Saltna, Syracuse, Liverpool, and Geddes. The revenue to the State derived from the salt works, has been, tor the past year, $47,531 76. Of this sum, $28,040 30 has been expended in various ways, leaving a net revenue of $21,491 46 for the past year. The profits of salt making and its production, have considerably increased, which the Superintendent attributes, with every appearance of justice, chiefly to the reduction ot duties from six cents to one cent a bushel, by the act of Assembly ol 18-16. The Illinois and Michigan Canal has also helped greatly to this, as now a market is opened at St. Louis for our salt, which has began tndmnlnre the Kanawha nail which hilhtrtn hi. supplied the WeBtern packers. The use of salt for agricultural purposes is also extending. The report here goes into the question of the merits of salt for agricultural uses, and proceeds to give reports of the analysis of various salts, which it is useless to present to our readers. A general history of the salt manufacture of this State is then ] given, containing some highly interesting facts, aa we take them to be. Arrival of an Alleged Slav* Vessel.?The bark Ann D. Richardson, seized off Rio, arrived at this port on Friday night, in charg; of Lieut. Sinclair. Charles W. Storer, master of the vessel, brought home in her, was arrested yesterday forenoon on a warrant, charged with being employed in the transportation of slaves from the coast of Africa. The circumstances of the case are said to be somewhat like those of the Laura. She had no slaves on board. The A. D R. was formerly owned here. She went out to Rio, and was sold there by Capt. Peabody, who lately relumed to this city. All her papers, including her register, were then returned to the Custom House in this city. Steamship Crescent City.?We are under many >bligations to Captain Stoddard, and other officers J >f this fine steamship, for furniahiu? ua with our correspondence, and also with intelligence from ( Panama, immediately after her arrival. c i Police Intelligence. 1 J\ Singular Charge of Fiuud.?OfRoers Stephana and .eland < t the lover police, arrested yesterday. James ] L H.

Now for the other f side. Mr. Wallin asserts most positively that the oharge is unfounded, and that the note tor $600 drawn by him, held by Pfeiffer ft Kranohe, is not due until the ] 1st of February, and when it becomea due it will be met and paid. Mr. Wallin further states that on the brannp before the magistrate on Monday, (to morrow) at 2 o'clock, ha will show conclusively, by respectable ' witresres. tbat tbscharge of attempting to dtfraud his I creditors is entirely unfounded. v Mori Chmrgn Jlgaintt the Watch Muffin. ?Wo n noticed in yesterday's Herald the arrest of two watch y it offers, by the names of William Allen alias Jackson, a ind James A Millar, on a obarge of defrauding a u ailor by the nam* of James Delany, ont of $75, by " irete'noe of selling a gold watob.

The object el it was to afford the el ulony a supply of labor, and to relieve the home in oveianient ot the support of so many offenders m gainst the law. th At ihe last accounts the Kaffirs were apparently ct nder complete subjection. The Governor, Sir n? farry Smith, remained at Cape Town. lv An association had been formed at Graham's U 'own for I he purpose ol promoting the growth ot et oiton 1.1 the colony. It is intended by this associa- ct ion (connected with which are the leading tner- in smile men of^ Graham's Town,) to send immelstely kto the 1. luted Slates lor a few of the most hl< niproved gins, and to ptovide also n supply of th >se ill arieties of seeds which sre supposed to be most hi uHsble to the soil and climate ot the colony. jr< The Cape Town Mercantile Guzttti of October id 7th, states that the operations en the light house M tCape Agulhas would be completed on the 1st of (* iovt mber, and the lamp would be lighted on that tir jght. .Subsequent papers make no further mention pM fihis light.?Bmlon Jrmrual, Jan. 26. an a to Etpr.oaioH or a Steam Boiler.?About t o'clock oh f the afternoon of yesterday, the boiler at Spear pe Co's. foundry, on Water street, exploded wiilt pa tmendoua force and effect.

In tact, there are not half on mles enough in the whole isthmus to supply the K?J -msnd. *iMI Permit me to go a little into detail. Chagres is a collection of 100 negro huts, with '*?, alls (when they have any) and roots thatched ithpalm. A few turkey buzzards ornament each ~ lot; and when it ceases to rain, they hold them- lali] Ives out in humble imitation of a spread eagle, to ry. Low and ewampy, it looks the abods of pes- f,r? Icnce, as it is. Now, in the dry season, it rains Brit n times a day, and the earth is fi.led to satura- k wn. In the eight wet months of the year, it must ban : decidedly moist. We left the place with all Qua invement speed?some in large boats which cauld beer nke but little progress against the strong current; c'm<l here in small ones, which could hold but two |d p ireons besides the two boatmen, and which made led pr< grtss up the stream.

But tb* use ot floods is on the land, and it is difficult to neot tbgiae that good can ever come ont of it. vani Cruces is nearly aa low, and quite h? disagrees- ce?1 r, as Chagres. We were compiled to remain ere some day s, in consequence ol the impossiht) ol obtaining transportation. Of the road m Crures to Panama, it is impossible to give aa tbs. l a.

To avoid disagreeable consequences, it will be ell to 1 nlorm those /tronmjwJm m(i? g our isthmus, that the introduction ot tobacco, en in transit, is entirely prohibited ; the introrction ol coflre and sugai^for conaumption, is tewite prohibited, though they may be entered r transit, on paying a duty of three oents per >und. For these facts see the transit laws. Now comes the gist ot the letter which, though conic enough, speaks volumes ?[Ed.

American gold, which has pearea with such profusion in these days, has eated a complete revolution; and surely many of ese Yankees must have forgotten the old proverb, at "a bird in the hand is worth two in the bush." Alas ! poor Yankees! take my advice and do not cpose yourselves to the fatal influences ot our cliate, which can be withstood by natives alone.

The brig Vesta, of this port, now undergoiug repairs, is up for California, and will sail without unnecessary delay. She is to be manned principally by a company from Ttsbury and Chilmark.
