TH NO. 5433. 1 C*mipond?ue? from California Emigrant*, n route. New York, April 20,1849. To th* Editors of the Herald:? Gentlemen :?We received, per Eororwi, a letter from Cap)* n J.W. Richardson, of the snip Brooklyn, which left this port on the 12th January, with passengers, for California. It was put on board a Hamburg ship bound home, from Bombay, and sent to us under cover of a letter from Cant. Brockleman, oPthat ship, being forwarded by the kindness ot the United States Consul, at Falmouth, England. Yours, Jcc., E. Richardson tfe Co. The following is an extract from Capt. RichardAmi's ? Ship Brooki.yh, February 15, 1819. ) Lat. 31 north ; long. 24 35 west. $ GEKTT.E11EN :? It is with pleasure that I embrace this opportunity to inform you of the safe arrival of the ship at this place, and of the good health of all on board. Our winds, on leaivng New York, were mostly from the westward, with frequvnt rains and heavy ea; but you will see, by our situation, we have not been laying still. _ I think I shall not k'e compelled to stop on this side of the Cape, hut shall yet have ample time to make up my mind. The ship is in good order?she makes no water t all, ultnough we have experienced some very heavy winds and sea. We lost the northeast trade winds two days since, and have now a light air from the southward, and 1 am now in hopes it will freshen up to steady southeast trades, when we shall proceed on our way towards the Cape. Before we reach the Cape, we shall have clear dneks, and large room in the hold for baggag'. While I write, the wind freshens from the southward, and I somewhat doubt if I am able to send this. You need entertain no fear but the ship Brooklyn will carry her passengers through with us little trouble as any other ship, and I hope asquick. I remain yours, in naste, J. W. Richardson. Mexico, 17th March, 1849. Notes of Travel in Mexico. Am I wrote you last, we left Vera Cruz in a coin pany of twenty-two, and overtook an American company consisting of sixty-men. Finding that * Buch a number could uot travel faBt enough, 1 separated from thein at Jalapa, and, with an acquaintance, proceeded on our road to this city, and arrived on Sunday last, without any accident. There* exists no doubt on my mind that we shall be attacked by Parties of ladrotiet, congregated on the road from here to (luadalaxara, and thence to Magadan. Still we shall proceed?and that as fast as possible?and prove to lot Mejiainos that it will not be safe for them to attack Americans. The aeconnts here are till more encouraging than those in New York when we left; a gentleman of the house of Messrs. Mcintosh having confidently told a gentleman of our party, that in the United States we could not form any idea of the vast extent of gold to be found in California. Being on the eve of departure, 1 conclude by useuring you that to Colifornia we will go, and nothing will stop us on the read. Vera Cruz, March 28, 1849. Transit through Mexico?No Interference. On the arrival of the brig Empire, Capt. Baxter, a few days since, from your city, to my consignment, some of her passengers, as well as some of the passengers of the brig Isabel, from your city, now in port, to my consignment also, said that passengers bound to California, via Mexico, informed them that there was a report in circulation that the authorities of this place had given much trouble, and forbid the landing of persons bound to California, with fire-arms, and other implements for their voyage. I beg leave to inform you, and the travelling public, that such is not the case?quite the contrary The Mexican authorities offer every facility and protection to our countrymen, in forWdrding them on their journey. The only charge they have to pay is fifty cents for a permit to land their baggage, hiiu in iiu uttst* navt- any ui iiirir jjuuuh uccn more than examined ; and arms, tools, and everything have been allowed to pass free. 1 have forwarded a great many on their route, who have got through without any trouble. We have an abundance of horses and mules here ; the former at $30, the latter at $45 to $60. I send yon the Arco-frit, of this place, and shall he pleased to receive your valuable paper. Jonas P. Levt. City of Mexico, March 16, 1S49. Litter from a Member of the Island City Mining Association. I again take the opportunity of writing you a few linos. * * * * * * We were thirteen days coming from Vera Cruz to Mexico. "We did not start for two days after the time mentioned in my last, and arrived here last Tuesday, and will sturt on our journey to-morrow morning for Mazntlan. It is believed here that there is as much gold as we thought there was in California. After etarting from Vera Cruz with $32 horses, we were obliged to change them, as they would ot stand the climate well; but as it does not change again, I think these will carry us through. The uving on the route has cost each man about six shillings |?er day, but I think we can live cheaper now. We expect to get to Mazatlan in thirty days, and from there by vessel to San Francisco in about twelve more. I would not advise any one to start from Vera Cruz with loss than $200. We have seen no dunV ?pr ypt to Rrure U8? h>r the Mexicans are a lazy, indolent people. At the place we stopped at over night, before getting here, I had my carbine stolen by a Mexican officer. The village contains about two hundred inhabitants, and has a guard ot twenty-five men. Seven of us, well armed and mounted, beared them bo that they were glad to give up the carbine and get clear of us. They are the biggest thieves in the world. Coming from Vera Cruz, we had to climh mountain after mountain for five days. Then we were about seven thousand feet above Vera Cruz. We had three or four days of travel over a level road, and the rest was part mountain and plain. Coming along, it has been beautiful to nee t ie different battle icenefi. The National Bridge is a terrifie place. Imagine yourself in a narrow pass, surrounded by perpendicular cIiHh from four to rive hundred feet in height, and cannon pouring.forth death and destruction from their summits; tlu-n imagine yourself climbing ur> and taking those cannon. The acrneiy along the road is splendid and magnificent; every few steps, as it would Heem, you see the ruins ot nntitpiity, destroyed by our troops. The churches here are magnificently grand, in art, workmanship and wealth, and surpass in richness any I everaaw; but for workmanship 1 have seen nothing to come up to St. Michaels. The city of Mexico is very large, and h?< many magnificent building:-; but they are all of the same style as those at Vera Cruz, built of ntone and mud, and look like prisons. In the halls of Montezuma I saw a statue of Charles VI. on horseback, which .is tremendous. It is twenty feet in height. Dayton, liodgkins and Van Yorks send their respects to all. Mr. Charles Dickie lost his nullc at Jalapa. but did not miss it before we had gone some fifteen miles, as it was in the charge of a Mexican. He wont back to Jalapa but could not find it, and sent us word that he was going back home; so 1 expect .you will see him before this arrives.' 1.457:it from Yucatan.?The schooner Stranger, Captain Tobin, arrived yesterday from Hisal, having ended frnn that port on the 4th inst. The Indians are gaining ground on the whites, sinceithe American regiment under Col. White was disbiuidi d. Previous to the sailing of the Ktranger, two thoissond men had left Cumpeachy for t-fisaT, to join a forte of government troops stationed there, the whole in proceed fc> Bucalar, to endeavor to retake that stronghold ftnm the Indians.

[From the BontOD Transcript, April 19.] We are indebted to our esteemed Fellow-citizen, Henry N. Hooper, Esu., for a second letter from his brother, William Hooper, Ewp, a partner in one of the principal mercantile houses of Sun Francisco. This letter bears date twenty-one days later than anv published accounts from San brancisco. It will be seen that (Jen. Smith, the new military commandant in California, had arrived at San Francisco, and been waited U|K>n by the citizens. There was no falling-off in the golden influx from the " diggings." The writer confirms the statements made in his letter of Junuary 20, from San Francisco. Those statements were so remarkable, in mr impressions iiiey conveyeu ui me Hiiuiiuaiice gold in California, that their truthfulness has been Questioned. The Nexrkuryjwrt Herald intimates thut we were over-credulous in publishing them. We need only reply by inviting those who question the reliability of these letters, to coine to Boston and inquire in regard to the character and position of the writer and the recipient. All doubts will then be dissipated. The subjoined letter came by the way of Mazatlan, Vera Cruz and New Orleans, und bears date? San Fiiancisco, (U. C.) Feb. 28,1849. A brig sails to-morrow for Mazatlan, affording the opportunity of dropping you a line announcing to you the arrival of the California steamer from Panama. She brings a large mail, but no letters for me. _ I hope you are aware that you can dron a letter in the post office for me any day, and it will come on safe. I suggest thut you write once a month?the day before the steamer sails. Ily the steamer we have late dates from the United States. The California gold fever appears raging among you ; and well it may, for surely there never was a discovery like it. Every day only udds to my astonishment^ Yesterday I weighed 120 lbs. of it. Keal estate is going up rapidly. In this place good sites sell at (20 the square yard. There is a reduction in the prices of most articles, owing to the expected arrivuls from the United States. At present flour is $15; pilot bread, $12; pork, $30. Of ull things lumber goes the highest. 1 paid to-day $400 the thousand feet. The smallest room rents tor $100 per month. Advise your friends to send any quantity of lumber, and small houses ready to put up. They will bring 500 per cent advance on the cost for the next two yeare. Cook's wages are $100 jier month; eggs $3 per dozen; salaratus, $8 per lb.; butter, $1 50; cheese, 75 cents; beef, 12 1-2 cents; pork, 25 cents; fowls, $3 50 each; firewood, $30 per cord; milk, $1 per bottle; board for mechanics, $10 per week. Common laborers can earn $0 a day; carpenters, $H, Cur sales for the last tour months amount to nearly three quarters of a million of dollars. It is not an uncommon thing to cart gold dust from one 6tore to another. I paid my resjiects to Gen. Smith to-day, introduced by my old and warm friend, Conimedore Jones. Gen. S. has the appearance of a firm man, and one well calculated for this country. t11e city of san fitancjsco. In the "Alto Califomian," (published in San Francisco^) of February 1st, an interesting account isgiven ol the city of ?>an Francisco. In June, 1847, it contained four hundred and fiftynine souls. In the previous year thirty houses were built, and laborers received from two to three dollars per day. In July and August following tbirtv-eicht houses were erected. In March. 1H48! the population hud increased to eight hundred and twelve, (whites,) being an increase of one hundred per cent in ei^ht months. In april, 1848. the peeple were gold struck, and the whole population rushed to the mines. The effects of these rumors about the wealth of the mines are described, hut these are familiar themes. Sickness having broken out in the mines they were nearly deserted in August and September, and the people crowded to San Francisco, and business beSin to revive. In November, when the fruits of e miners' labor began to be reaped, San Francisco began to lengthen her strides to prosperity and greatness. Other advantages are claimed for the town. It is said to possess the safest, largest, and most accessible harbor on the whole coast. The situation of the town is picturesque, and only four miles from the sea. The bay of Sau Francisco is navigable for medium sized vessels, as are also the Saerumrnto and San Joaquin. The climate is healthy. The population has increased since March last to about two thousand souls. Keul estate has risen in value from one hundred to one thousand per cent. The exi>ort of gold dust since May last is supposed to exceed two millions The im|>ortation of coin for the purchase of gold dust in 1848 amounted probably to one million of dollars. The imports of merchandise for the same period were equal in value to one million of dollars. The duties collected in 1848 amounted to $196,074 06. The number of buildings erected in the year 1848 was more than fifty. Passengers arriving by sea one thousand. Major Heall's Expedition. [From the Santa Kc Republican, Feb. 2 ] This distinguished and indelatljgable officer arrived in Santa Fe on the 25th ultimo from Taos, after making one of the most successful as well as arduous excursions aguinst the savage tribes that have so often and so long scourged the inhabitants of New Mexico. The ostensible object of the expedition was to protect Mr. Aubry's train of wagons from rumored attacks of the Indians; but, wiili the accustomed energy of the man, finding, on arrival at the train, that liis services were not needed, he accomplished much more than was commanded or expected. On the 23d of December lie left Taos with a detachment of only forty-eight men of coin[>any I, in defiance of the assurances of die citizens, and those acquainted with the route, that at that season of the year it was utterly impracticable, and could only result in fuilure. Undaunted by their prognostics, he plunged into the Taos mountains, then covered with from eight to twenty feet deep of snow, nnd without a road to follow, without a rnatk to direct, save the snow-clad peaks, and tnisting alone to his own iron will, the devotion of his soldiers, and the judgment of his guides, he toiled on?now on foot, beating down the snow in order to make a passable path for his park mules ; then ut the head of his little squadron, setting the example of braving at once the obstacles of nature, and tne fierceness of the elements. For three consecutive days, after toiling thus through the day, they had to clear away snow to the depth of ten feet before they could kindle their cheerless fire. At the end of six days they reached the train, and found it perfectly safe, not having been molested by the lndians in the slightest degree. Having procured a little supply of coffee nnd sugar from the train for his command, he proceeded to the valley of Green Horn, in order to obtain forage for his horses. This accomplished, and much useful information gained, in obedience to instructions, he directed nis march again for Taos, via the Guajatoya mountains. This route proved even worse than the Taos chain, the command having to struggle through snow from twenty to thirty feet deep for a distance of ten to fifteen miles. On the afternoon of the 8th of January, the com mand struck a fresh trail of Indians, and pursuit was immediately made. In a short time, a party of Apaches, well mounted, were overtaken on entering one of their villages. The Mayor could easily have annihilated the whole hnnd, including their village, but, acting upon the saint of his instructions, and in accordance witli the practice established by the colonel commanding the Territory, he held a great talk, not only with them, hut all their neighboring chiefs, including one of the principal chiefs of the Iiutnwe, all of whom not only agreed to make a treaty, hut, as evidence of their sincerity and gopd faith, to deliver all the stolen property in their possession. Nor do we fear their non-compliance. The very manner as well as speech of the Major, meat have impressed those savages with the strongest conviction that neither distance, mountains, nor seasons, would be sufficient to furnish security against such a foe. We can imagine we see him as he erects his tall figure before those savage chiefs and warriors, and fells them that he comes not Htnong them to buy a peace by distribution of presents, but to demand all tkeir stolen property, make a sincere peace and be friends, or continue to rob, and he would ; return and extirpute them ; that the land was now of the white man. nnd lie would maintain it while the mountain* should retain their places, or the tempests continue to rook the lofty pines on th-ir orenstH; we any we can imagine how he looked on delivering those truism* to the snvages, and the impression which it must huve made upon their minds. Of one thing wo are certain?that a visit to their villages, mane in such a season, nnd rendered memorable by such a bold and energetic style of talk, are worth more than the revenue! of the entire nation distributed among them in presents. \Ve learn that the gallant old veteran, in the course o| n lew days, will be despatched upon another exenrsicn of n more important character, Hnd agninst a nation far more numerous. Success attend him; nnd may he return from this expedition an he did from his last, without th? loss of either man or beast! We also learn tbat the treaty entered into be1>m.< n M. jcr ii* all wid one of th principal Chiefs W YO MORNING EDITION?SAT of the Kutaw nation had bee?, complied with in the strictest terms, they delivering up all the stolen horses which were in their possession; after which the Muior despatched twelve of the horses for the immediate relief of Col. Fremont's suffering party, together with thirty days' provisions, and the best of pack-mules for its conveyance. Col. "Webb's California Expedition.?Letters were received in town yesterday, by the steamship ( lobe, from various members of the expedition which left for California under Col. Webb s command. From these, we glean some interesting information as to the company:? We have already mentioned that when the cholera broke out amonir the members, opnosite Clav Davis's, Mr. Audubon ordered tlieroinjwny at once to proceed further up the river. They wont as far upas Mier. Some were left behind to look after the sick. We hear that three died of the cholera, in addition to those whose names we published on the 29th ult. This makes eleven in all who died of cholera. The names of the last throe victims we have not learned. At Mier, it was found that the company had become disheartened by the death of their companions and the prospects before them. A dissatisfaction with their commander. Colonel Webb, also manifested itself extensively. The result was, that the expedition was abandoned and the company set out for home. They were at ltio Grande city on the 31st ult., and there they received more encouraging accounts, which induced them to reconsider their intention of returning to the United States. The result was, that when ilie latest letters were written, on the 31st, a goodie number of the members had deteimined to proceed to their original destination, in two parties. Col. Webb would have the command of fifteen, who still adhered to him. Forty-four others hail organized a second party, and were going on under the charge of Lieut. Browning, of the navy, Mr. Audubon and Mr. Sitii|>?un. The latter party were to proceed without military organization, and they think they have about the right number of members. This party had not left Hio Grande city on the 31st, and itiB barely possible that they would yet change their ntinds; but from the letters we nave seen, we infer thnt they would positively proceed to California, and also Col. NVehh's smaller party. At last accounts, all had recovered their spirits wonderfully; their health was excellent, and now that they are organized in companies of more proper numbers, we have little fears for their future success.?N. O. Picayune, April 12. kxrnaorninary Snow Storm -On Sunday last, the 15th of April, we had a sno storm here "funheard of severity, we sunpc? lor this season and climate. It commenced slur tly early in the morn* ing; but about 9 o'clock \. M., the snow began to fall thickly, and continued until 5 i'. M., having in the meantime accumulated on level places to ihe depth of a -vaids of four inches. During the day and ni icicles formed in abundance.?Faycttcvillc ( C.) observer. Tli 11- a re?] blustering snow storm at Wilmim ill f arolina, on Sunday last, (such as we It ( ity yesterduy morning.) It fell to the a ix inches. This is extraordinary, nothii nd ever before being known in that iff.. 11 by the "oldest inhabitant.". Garden vth s, fruits, and flowers have all been swept off. This extraordinary occurrence is noticed by most of the newspapers received last night from principnl points at the South. At Charleston (S. C.) the sleet and snow continued to fall for about four hours; at Columbia, five hours; at Augusta, (Geo.) two hours: and passengers to Savannah state that it continued along the line of the railroad about four hours. The thermometer in those regions, a day or two previous, ranged between 70 and BO. The Charleston Caurin- remarks that if the storm has extended into the southwestern States, and been accompanied with a like degree cf cold, the cotton crop, which must be generally up, will have been destroyed by the Frost, and must be replanted. This will very much retard its growth, and render a good crop much more uncertain.?National Intelligencer, April 20. Hard black frost, following the snow-storm on Monday morning, hue, we fear, done serious damage to the young cotton and whrut plants throughout the country, as our gardens have suffered severely from the 6&mc cause. The face of nature looked very bright and smiling the morning after the clean washing, however, and the verdure of the fojiage was far fresher from the contrast with the wintry draj>ery in which it had been arrayed the day before. We had "an eager and a nipping air" all yesterday morning, hut in the evening it became again a Southern day with Southern feelings. Tha damage done to the coming crop it is impossible yet to calculata?we apprehend that it has been considerable, and that ninny of our planters will have to try their planting over again. Our " oldest inhabitant" has no recollection of such an unseasonable snow-storm in this latitude before.?Coj I inn hit (S. C.) Telegraph, April 17. Tmpoktant Political Movement.?A secret political movement, intended to bear upon the next Presidential election, has recently been developed. A lew days before the adjournment of the late extra session of the United States Senate, a pai>er signed by the Governor, Lieutenant Governor, the Comptroller, the Secretary of State, the Attorney General, and the State Treasurer of New York, was transmitted to Washington, protesting against the appointment to any office in the city of New Yolk of any non-resident of that city?and asking, moreover, that no ai>|>ointment should be made in this State, without the approbation of Mr. Senator Seward. The immediate object of this protest was to prevent the appointment of Governor Young or Jno. A. Collier to the olficc of Collector, Naval Officer, or Sab Treasurer in New York, and the appointment of nny whigs to oflice in this State, wbo were not hostile to those gentlemen and to Mr. Fillmore. In other words, to secure to the Seward clique a monopoly of all the offices in this State, in the gift of the national government. The remote object of this movement, was to secure the nomination of Mr. Seward as the next whig candidate for the Presidency.?Albany Express, April 20. Resignation.?Mr. Harris, of Georgia, attached to the office of Register of the Treasury, handed in his resignation, we understand, on Wednesday. ? Washington Uni*n. The Diplomatic Smuggllag at Stockholm. The writer of these lines lias not for object to blame Mr. Ellsworth for his undignified conduct in the above case, but to exonerate Mr. Arfwedson, United States Consul at Stockholm, from the groundless imputation contained in neverul communications which huvc lately appeared in different newepupera, to the purport that the goods attempted to be smuggled into Stockholm by Mr. Ellsworth, under the cloak of his diplomatic privilege, wers in some way or other the property ?f Mr. Arfwedson. To the friends and acquaintances of Mr. Arfwedson in this country, it is needless to unii ii' tv 11 o in iiii 111.1111111 or wity, iiirvcuy ?r indirectly, concerned in the smuggling case. This public denial in, however, due to Mr. Arfwedson; and it is now made, distinctly and unequivocally. An extract from a letter from Mr. Ellsworth, dated Stockholm, 1Mb October last, was published some time since in an Indiana newsnuper. In it Mr. Ellsworth alludes to a <|uarrel lie hnd hud with a gentleman in Stockholm (meaning Mr. Arfwedson), on the subject of entering some baggage at the Custom House in Stockholm. This letter has been supposed, by persons unacquainted with the facts, to allude to the "diplomatic smuggling case;" whereas it alludes to an entirely different case, the facts of which are lirielly as follows -.-r Before Mr. ArhndM left Swedes lor America, with his family, Inst summer,Mr. Ellsworth offered to Mrs. Arfwedson, in the presence of an American gentleman, now in this city, and whose name is left with the Editor of this pn|ier, to pass the hagguge and elieets of her family on their return. This otter wan made by Mr. Ellsworth out of compliment to the Consul's lady, who is an American by birth?a lady of wraith and of the highest standing anil respectability?and was frankly accepted by her, merely as a mark of courtesy towards Mr. Ellsworth, whom she did not wish to refuse so slight an oiler of his diplomatic privileges. The family of Mr. Arfwedson returned to Stockholm in the beginning of October last Their baggnge consisted of trunks and packages, containing nothing but the personal effects of Mr. Arfwedson s party, which comprised nine persons. On their return, Mr. Ellsworth quarrelled with Mr. Arfwedson on the subject of some pecuniary matters, refused to pass the bag- | gage at first, but afterwards represented the case to llaron Stierneld, who immediately gave a free 1 penult for the baggage. The whole transaction was at an end before the close ot the tiiouih of October. The ten cases ol dry goods attempted to be smuggled by Mr. Klleworlu,arrived in Stockholm on the 9ib of December last, from Eubeck. We find a pnblic rxjh?e ot the whole affair in the Swedish newfpnpers, printed in January last. The two transactions are wholly and entirely distinct, and h?ve nothing whatever to do with euch other. Trie object of mi.\i .g Mr. ArfweJ. h n's nnnie with the smuggling cas". is eith?r nind.! ; in ignortincc, or for tin* j n ;<use of oonc iling tip? j true facte of the Hiieggiir| case. C. E' II. R K K URDAY, APRIL 21, 1849 Our Par 1? Correspondence. Paris, April 5,1849. The Bourse and Money Market. My last report brought the transactions of the Bourse up to "Wednesday the 21st of March. On Thursday all kinds of ominous new9 was spread? the Mountain had protested?the journals protested ?Le Ptuple sowed terror m Paris?Radetzky hurled the most deudly defiance at Churlee Albert?the king of Naples had dissolved the parliament; but still the attitude of the government, and the general posture of internal atfuirs, afforded a check to all these sayings of evil augnry. On Friday the Bourse was almost in a state of stagnation. The manifesto of the Austrian cabinet had, in some sort, neutralized the fearful denunciations of lludetzky. On Saturday, good news showered on the market, and the five per cents rose above 83. The Parliament of Frankfort drew back from the completion of its work, which was called by some the unity, and by others the dismemberment, of Gurmiuiy: Lord Palmerston had dissipated the fears excited in France and Lngland by the (accordingto him, momentary) occupation of the Danuhian provinces; and Lord Lansdnwnr, abandoning Charles Albert, had extricated France and Fngland from the risk of an intervention

equally dreaded by both. JSucli was the termination of the first week; and yet, although the events were of stirring moment, jiuhlic credit could not bu said to lie interfered with. The truth is, that the general price of the Rentes was in accordance with the general |H>silionof affairs, and order and confidence are beginning to work their effects. During the week that ensued, the Bourse was a veritable m;w? market, every one having something to lenrn or impart on the events passing around ua. We have not, lor a long time, seen so great fluctuations, or business transacted to such large amounts. At the moment when the urtnistice was concluded between the two armies in Italy, there existed enormous amounts of transactions, which compelled repurchase. On this account, and from the approaching settlement, a rise was forced, and accordingly we see quotations considerably advanced. This compelled many speculators to continue to the end si the month of April. The rise was aided by many large bunking houses having large amounts of Rentes to deliver, and by the practice of discounting in advance, the events favorable to a rise, amongst which the coming elections and their probable results are some. The rise still continues. Other securiiies have partaken of the tendency to rise of the Rentes. The railway meetings which have taken place v. ithin the last fortnight, have disclosed a miserable state of affairs as regards the receipts of the past year, und the dividends have been proportionally small. The hope, however, that matters huve been at the worst, und that 1818 was an exceptional year, prevents much of those securities being thrown on the market, and has indeed produced a demand for some of the lines, amongst others that of Orleans, which are considered to he safe and sure investments. 1 subjoin the prices :?

Attack on the Timber Trade of Vaiuida?More Dittat isfact ion?Annexation. In every measure brought forward hy the Ministry of the day, they would?to use u vulgarism? appear "to have put their foot in it." Another scheme of iniquity has just leaked out, and of so important a character as to fix the attention of the most letharuic observer. It would iipiieur, from a despatch dated the 20th December, 1848, written to Lord Grey by Lord Elgin, covering a minute of a council respecting the proponed railwny from Halifax to Quebec, that as a further inducement to the imi>erial government entering into its construction, the Ministry proposed, as a guaranty of the payment of the interest on the outlay, that a duty of seven s idlings and sixpence per load U|>on all lumber exported from Canada, should be levied. This selection of a particular branch of Canadian trade, which already iinds it difficult to compete with that exported from Norway and the Hultic, is calculated to raise the indignation of the commercial community in particular, and the country generally. The timber trade of Cnnada, as you are aware, is now one of the most lucrative that we possess. Every year it is increasing; and to its prosperity the various towns on the Ottawa owe much. To attack this trade, is to wage war with all those engaged and interested in it?and they, at the present day, are no inconsiderable body. The number of vessels engaged in this trade is not less than twelve or thirteen nundred, annually. How, then, is it possible that the Canadian producer can pay seven shillings und sixpence per load, and compete with his Iialtic rival1! The freight of a load of timber from the Baltic to England in from fourpence to fivepence a foot; that from Quebec in from eightpence to ninepencc?making a ditference of fourpence a foot against (laaada. Let twopence a foot be added to tuat difference, and see how we will meet it. Saturday being appointed for the meeting of committees, the Legislature did not meet. List night nothing of importance was transacted in the House of Assembly. The nomination for a candidate for the member of the county of Sherbrooke takes place to-day. Mr. Gait is the only candidate that lias at present come forward; and as there is no body to oppose him, it is of course likely that lie will he elected. In Hamilton, and the upper province (generally, the subject of annexation in still under discussion. The convention established in Montreal is to meet on Thursday evening next, for the transaction of important bunineee. The navigation in now fairly open, and the various steamers 'plying. A very large atnyunt of produce is expected from Upper Canada this spring, and much is now on its way.

Trial for Murder la Baltimore. S i ATB AUAIBST CoBBAD WlBTI!? ALIA* CoBB AD VOBBBB . ?Til* indictment contains five counts. The first charges the prisoner with having struck the deceaseds mortal blow upon the left side of the huad, with a stane held in his hand. The second charges the initiation of the wound hy throwing the (tons. The third by strik- j ins the head of the deceased against the stone whila 1 lying upon the ground. Tlio fourth by striking with the (1st. The fifth by seising the deceased and plungng her into a stream, thereby choking, suffocating and i drowning her. Mr. Srr.w.i.r then proceeded to the opening of the I ease, and commenced with an appeal to the Jnry to ex- | amine their minds, and if they were sensible of any bias for or against the prisoner, to dismiss it from their , luinds. Mr. K. proceeded to present the character of tha . offence of murder, as distinguished by th? law, from ho- j mieide of the lesser grade, known as murder in the seo- i ond degree, and as uianslanghter. This distinction , wes carefully made, and tha minds of tha jury prepared for the necessary discrimination. Advancing to the frets in the case, be stated that Mrs. Idinabeth . Cooper, the deceased, was the wife of Mr Tege Cooper, a very respectable gentleman of the county. That on | tlie 2lith May, 1H48. having been visiting In Baltimore, | she was returning to her residenee, about 21 miles ( from Baltimore, and had arrived at Parktou by the railroad, her residenee being about a mile end a half er ; two miles from tintt point. Khe left Perkton about on* o'clock in the afternoon, carrying an umbrella and a bandt>ox containing nriMM articloi af clothing Ik i wait not nntil four or flvu day* afterward* that her body waft found, her husband having had no knowledge that she had left Baltimore. Thlft fact having been aee?rtained. however, a general aeareh was made for tho body, whirli waft found upon the uonnty road, something less than half a milt from i'arkton. It waa by t lie fide of a branch, eovared with brush and largo ftlonee on the top of it, the riothea being polled over the head and the perron exposed. The head waa inueh hruifted. the ekull being broken in and the body mnch lacerated by being dragged along the road. In tha vicinity of tho spot. fcveral marks of blood were dleeovervd. the railft being nleo marked with blood an! cx- ; hibiling tha evidence of atlemptft to remove it by ran J > large fttone wus also found with a aharp point en it, fttnined with hload. and having a email portion of gray : huir attaehed. Thus, the cmpu* dilicti would be eatahlift bed? Uie fact that the murder VkldOM by someone The proof would then refer to the prisoner. It would ; be shown that he was in the neighborhood immediately before Mrs. Cooper's arrival, and said that lie had no money, or hnt six or seven cents; that he was enquiring I the way to Newmarket; that he exchanged a pair of pantaloons, which he said were too good for lilin. for an inferior pnir, to get a trille to hoot, with the privilege | of redeeming t In in. Further, that lie was sitting upon a woodpile v.lien the cars arrived at I'arkton from Hal- 1 timore. and that after Mrs Cooper left the prisoner was seen to get up mid go along that road, being a direction contrary to Unit hu had proposed to go. Tha' in the eourieof the afternoon he re-mppcured in I'arkton, inquiring what time the cars left for York, and having at least $.'i or with him. a pair of women's slmas. which could lie clearly identified as belonging to Mrs. Cooper. That he. witli a man named Paul Kuukle. wiiohad been seen with him previously, left in the ears for York on that afternoon. That lie remained four or five days at Kunkle's house in York, until he obtained employment at Dr. Dell's, where he was when the murder wus disco. Tcreu. ami lie wnn piiiiscquciiiiy arroeieu.

Mr. Burton, as K.benexer Sadden, cannot bo surpassed. If equalled; and so thought tho audience, if we may judge from the long and repeated rounds of applause. Mrs Trapper, taken by Mrs. Vernon. was. as usual, played In good style. All the other performers were very perfect in their parts. " Socialism, or Modern Philosophy Put in Practice," was received witli the greatest acclamations of delight. The comical dress of Mr. Brougham, as Mr. Fourier Urislay, appears to be well known; and the laughable scenes which occur in the exchange of articles for food, as the ' money medium Is abolished, keeps the house iu one i constant roar from the begiuning to the finish " Forty Winks" is a vary laughable affair; and as Mr. Burton is the Mr. Muns. the principal character in the piece, the reader can readily imagine the amusement received by the audience.

The oratorio is partly la the narrative form, tlia incident* being linked together by recitation, and, a* in tho Greek, shows much of what passes by way of recital. The words ara by Horatio Stone the music by George 11. Curtis, and the admirable arrangements by G. F Dristow, while the principal vocalists consist of Mrs. L. A. Jonas, Misa E. Lieluca, Messrs. Nash ami Page, with thu entire and highly efficient chorus of the Sacred Music. Rociaty.? The part of ' Sybil'" was exquisitely sustained by Misa Delnce, who was supported with no common ability by Mr. Nash, as ''Seer," while the representatives of "Christiana" and "Victor" were ably sustained by Mrs. Jones and Mr. Page. The choral department was effective, and in perfect harmony with the instru! mental arrangements, tlie whole most admirably con; ducted by Mr. llristow.
