I im Wilfred out here by my physician for the benefit of my health, and having made a three DOBths tour in this island for the first time, for mt of something better to do, I have now come to the desperate determination of giving yon my im pressions of this beautiful country. Jamaica, or Kaymaca, signifying ' the land of springs," was, as we all know, discovered by Columbus in the year 1494, on hiti tecond voyage of discovery; and n?t being successful in landing at the town now known u Pert Maria, owing to the fie ceaess of the waters, he pushed fuither northward, and landed at the little town cf Ora Cabessa. Tte Indians numbered, on the first disoovery cf the island, some 80,000 or 100,000, but owing to the barbarous cruelty of the Spaniards, they soon became entirely extinct. In 1656 the island was eubjuga'ed by Cromwell, and sinoe that period has belonged to England. A few years alter this it was that Morgan, the great bueoaneer, was made Lieutenant-Governor of Ja maica, in honor of his fllibuntering exploits, and shortly after knighted and made full Governor. Port Royal, which had for a long time been the resort of these buccaneers, and become very wealthy in oonsequence, was, in 1692 , with 3 ,000 of its inhabi tants, suddenly immerged by a terrible earthquake, and entirely destroyed, together with all the public documents relating to the island. It is said that the sunken houses are to this day discernible beneath the waters ot the ocean. Fran these frequent earthquakes the island has assumed fiat bold appear anoe in its lofty moun tains, deep everglades, abrupt precipices, smiling valleys, and rushing cataraots, that often reaches to the highest pointing cf grant eur. In 1792 L?rd Rodney defeated Count De Grasse in an attempt on the part of Franee and Spain to retake the island, and to commemorate the event, a splendid marble statue oi Rodney now stands in the puUio square of Spanish Town. So mu :h for the early history of Jamaica. The traveller as he approaches by sea is first struck with the fine appearance of the blue mountains, rising in the distance from the sea, tbeir tops covered with beahttfal white fleecy clouds, and clothed from the base to their summits with the most luxuriant vege tatiea. As he reaches nearer he beholds the sea shore lined with immense number of coooanut trees, whose tall and graceful appearance when beading to the sea breese has the most pleasing effect. But we are now nearing the whar f upon which we an te land, and which take* considerable time to aeooaaplish. In the meantime the steamer is boarded by myriads of natives, who have come off in their cgyaop, fiJed with all kinds of fruits, their mer chandise moving tff mnch quicker than I should suppose to be the case at the present time in New Yoik? no such thing b:ing known hen as a tight money market or bunk defalcation. While this profitable traffic has been carried on, numberless little copper colored boys, as naked as die day they were burn, hate swam to the vessel, ind the passer gers have fouad a new source of tmusement ifl throwing silver change to them. The {rotetquentrs a&d singular gestures of the boys as about twentv ol tt em aive tor a alnirl* uvnnnr* ? I waUr for the money, and tne successful one at engtk coming up with the prize, shooting out in ? is glee, in his ouilaudun gibberish? all tuis, 1 gay, eemed to me very str?nge, and in my mind I could ompare them to nothing but imps of the evil one ivug in the liver Styx. Tne steamer has now got loofeside of hex whaii, and tne passenger^ are hur ying on shore and swarming tne streets; they are met on all aides by the lemales of the city, who, re seed in their handsomest, stand in long clone ma from the steamers wharf up along many a treet. gome of them are pretty, and use all their nsoinating powers tj aiira.it attention. The ar lival ot a steamer is looked upon by them as a great event, and they turn it to full account. A gcod many of tne passengers have dabbed to Ber and hind om&lDusei for the afternoon? fjr . are bouid for Calif jrnia, and the steamer will fca coaled and ell' in tne evening? and are driving through the st eets, ezchangiog, do* aad taen, a word with some pietty girl they meat. Tt-e storekeepers here, althoagh glad to see them come, because they spend a good deal oT money, are, 1 think, a little jealous ot them; for they nave eout caricatuns representing theui over crowded the omnibuses, with their legs elevated at an angle of many degiets above t ieir heads, and huge moustaches and oeaids, and long nines stuck in their mouths, puffing from tbem large volumes of segar emoke, line one ases issuing from the pipe of a tolerable tized steamer. Not being a smoker, and having neither moust ?ches cr beard to boas, of, I prcceedtd qu etly to Mrs. BlundelTs, onp of the best houses beie you m*> sa,po<e, for I would not even be euspected of going to any other. I Lad been recommended to gt to ihn Dtte Tree, another good house, but a " fa", friend" of mine who came out ovaenger wi',h me, in sisted on my going to the aforesaid Mrs. Blundell's; jou may very naturally, as did the Pricce to IWu Brumneil, a,k "Who Is our fat fitond?"

This large ezcr^soen e, (I wish I could call it a nealthy me, but I would not ba telling the truth if I did,) be nwd to irrigate many times durirg the day, not seemingly with any intention of extending the area of its 'rsedon, bat >ratber, aal thought, with a resigned hope of re during its size acd inflammatory tend nicies.

On the contrary, as if conscious or its majesty, the no* seemed to have defied all effirta towages the slightest degree of conciliation. and seemed to be literally ba rating from its fetters. I was often highly amused on the passage, when tusking down up<m him from my orow neat, to dnd that owing to his great dimensions, (or, as he tanned it, the extreme smillne* of tue berth,) he was unable to stow his whole body in; that was ceitahly entirely out of the question and admitted of not the slightest dispute. But he seemed to be thankful even to get his legs La, and to sapply the wants of the carcass part, be would ingeniously smngf'e several stools from the dmlng table every night, acd upon them lay the a did part or hi* body ? miens the limbs - then resigning himself Into the a. ma of Morpheus, would shortly after; wa*? me in groat fright with bis trombone snoring*.

They ere deserving of tbe admiration of every traveller, being kept at tbe expense of the government, in admirable order, and in consequence mnoh reanrted to by the inva lid!. While going up I diaoovered that ft black woman, pnttv well aavanoed in years, had, with ft email black girl, followed ua on foot all the way up. My companion du voyage, aoan entered into oonversatlon with the oldeet, who, it ftp peered , bad oome with us from Hndneee, thinking we were strangets and unacquainted with the roads. My friend addressed her aa follosra:? "How do yon do, good woman," to whioh ihe replied: " Berry wall, good maaaa backra? me hope yon berry well, too." Mv friend continued hla conversation, and after a wnile pointing ti me, aaid: ."Ton know that buokra gentleman," to which ahe aaid, no. He tbdn con tinued, "dat bnckra gentleman, oae berry greit man, him berry rich? him President of the (Jolted States- him to oome to bay all the blaik people, niggers and plccanniniea in Jamaica; when blaot alg ger aek you who him am, j on tell ttiem one berry great man ? ard me him great friend. Nor you remember all I told you?" ne inquired, to whioh ahe responded in the affirmative, bat having his doubts on that point, be made her repeat what ne had sai'l. Her blundering attempts were ao extremely ludi crous, and so replete with go>d humor, that we ahoated with laughter, which came back to aa in many an echo. li was pomethlng like the following : "When nig Eer ask me who wite buckra gentleman are, me say im berry great big maa, him prealden ob de magls tracy? him tnuci rich, and him buy all the black women for himself, and give plcanninlea plenty of money." It waB quite in vain to endeavor to correct her. My friend told her repeatedly that it was not tbe president of tbe magistracy I was, but the President of the United States, laying a great emphasis on the latter in scorn of toe former, bat it was of no use ? good, innocent old soul? ahe had never heard of such a person, and she could not appear to compre hend that ticbes were for any other purpose than to buy up all the black women in the island, and taea take care of their plccaninies. We slept overnight, and prooeeded along next morning, meeting on our way the Plantain 6 irdsn river, a pretty stream, with enohanting views about it. Reaching a small place at night, caTlei Hanchio neal, we rested from our labors, and stopped at the only house in the place, most romanti '-ally situated on tbe sea shore, and so close to the aea that you might almost step from the doorway into it. The house waH,a s U. keep would say, ft very " 'amble one," and 1 was obliged to make the principal room serve as a dining room by day and bedroom by night; bat I enjoyed it, and was lolled to sleep by the musia of the waves, washing almost at ay feet. Inthia little house I noticed many old fashioned utensils of Bolid sliver, with the initials of some family name engraven upon them, giving tokens of better days. Had Byron seen Manrhioneal he woald doubtless have writteu some beautiful lines in msmory of this solitary pla e. , Leaving next morning we travelled through a fine country, generally oloee upon tue sea, often meating with swollen streams, whioh we were obliged to drive throng d, sometimes almost over carriage top. The same evening reached Port Antonio, an important town, but no business place. There is a handsome government church here, wnich I attended, aad wis much amused to bear the minister, an Eaglishman, ndminster a scorching lecture to his black brethren for having voted toi a black man for the Assembly, instead of a white one. I doubt, however, if any impression was made on their thick skulls. 1 stopped a lew days at a mountain residence, called Provi dence, a few miles froln Port Antonio, where ( found the puie air so exhiliarating that my appetite Boon gained upon me to a feariul extent, ana there was likely to be ft famine in tbe place. It was my goal tortune to visit tbe oopper district, a short distance from here, which was done however at the risk of mv neck. The roftdB we were obliged to go over on horseback, were frightful, being in many places not over a foot wide, and the least ?lip would have in stantly dashed both horse and rider to toe bottom of tha pledgee below. They were tbe moat danger ous roads I encountered in all toe island, aad abould not like to go over them ag*in. Bat I was fully compensated by the gran dear of tbe soenery. I lave seen nothing finer in all the island; some times noised high up in the air, with nothing ou tne narrow road to depend on for safety but the sure fcited horse, the e>e win d gaze down beneath and arouni for miles uoon tbe most bsautiful land i- cape that can be imagined, to those who have witnessed Jamaica scenery, any description would fall far snort of the reality. Oould Cole, or a mas ter genius like bim, hsve come ontbeiemt painted these views, they would have surpassed uo>tbing they ever undertook. Oh know ye the land where the ptamtain and eoco Beam, pines and potatoes grow ail in a group, V lien- tomato** flourish? where grows the greeu olero So lmcioui in gravies, in sauces and soup ? W here the rivers are rapid, and mountains are steep, With their summits so lofty and ravines so deep; Where it always is runuing by night or l>y day ? Where sugar plantations have long ceased to pay; Where lodes of auriferous ores may be found Not merely deposits on the top of the ground, But permanent lodes with good walls are seen Of suiphurets, oxides and carbonates green, W here strife worse than that 'twixt tUeOapulets raged ? Where Qnashie leads one side and white man the otlier; Where 'tis man agaiust man, and brother against bro ther. 'Ti? the parish of Portland, whose virtues must shine To the end of the world ? tne end of all time. Oh ! no man the beauties and wonders may tell Of tbe parish of Portland, the place where I dwell. If I go on much longer I will take up all your pater; so must wind up briefly. I should like to te'l you of my adventures la passing through Buff Bay, Amatto Bay, Port Maria, Ooho Bio, St. Ann's Bay, Dty Harbor, Rio Bueno, Falmouth, Hontey'a Bay. Savanna la Mar, Ac. I will say tbai tae scenerv round abont St. Ann's is equal to any in tae Island, and woith a vleit to enjoy. 1 must close with one observation: When I came here first, 1 wan at once struck with the graceful carriage if even the commonest black girls. My mind was taxed for a long time to learn tne c rase, wnen I suddenly discovered it. They carry from their earliest years everything en the tops of their heads without holding on with their hands. I have seen tbrm walking in the roaia with aa orange balarced on the top of their head, and sometimes a bottle, empty. They cannot be induced to carr? tbem in their hands. Now the gracefulness I speak of, any New Yoik lady might well be proud of; and what 1 suggest It , that the ladies there make u? of my bint, and at once commence pra jtlsiug privately in their parlors tbe balancing of < ranges and bottles and "sich" like on tbeir beads, and if they do not soon find themselves growing undulatlngly graceful, why, then, my name Is not Jack Robinson.

French and English Interference with the Dominican Government ? The Cazneau Treaty? Action of the Consuii ? Another Letter to the President ? Present Attitude of the United Statee, fre., tfc. If you will concede thla grace to a poor Domini can, I would desire to present to the American pub lic the last example of toe itupendous wisdom and unheard-of modesty of the moat exoelleut consuls of Franoe and England. Ton mast be well informed of the fact that taeae gentlemen have taken possea ?ion of the Dominican government in tha name of their august Majesties the Emperors Napoleoa and Fanstin and Queen Victoria (Q. D. G.), and that at the preeent moment it is as dangerous for a Do. mininan to call himself the friend of the United States as it is for a Gnban. The French and English hare a force of one han dled guns in oar roadstead, and for more than one month we have lived in daily terror of seeing tie revengeful negro chief, Buenaventura Baez, landed from the ships and put in possession of the capital. In October the Dominicans were crazy with joy at the conclusion of a treaty with the United States, tor we thought the friendship of our great and pow erful neighbor would impose restraint upon the Haytiens, ani bring American emigrants to ocoupy our rich and cheap lands; but unhappily for us, it was not the will of England or Frane to permit the citizens of the United States to render as and

themselves this at r vioe. The British and French consuls put on their gold lace coats and went in severe state to tell President Santana that their Majesties Napoleon, Faustin and Victoria would not permit the Domini oan govern ment to make treaties with the United States. Pre sident Santana is a silent, stubborn man, and made no reply, when he was informed by these omnipo tent gentlemen that Faustin would bring an army of fortt thousand negroes to ravage the republic!, while their navy would put the negro Baez m his place in this capital; bat, mark me, the insult will never be forgotten by Pedro Santana, or any other true Dominical. Presently the American plenipotentiary enters the palace, in his plain black suit, and passes quite calmly into the President's private cabinet, where he remained so late that an officer had to be sent to the St. Carlos, or Gonde gate, to order it kept open for General Caznean (who lives In the country), to pass ou?*after the interview. The morning after this conference, their consular majesties were notified that " their objections to the American treaty mast be pat in writing." The French consul, Duresse, had already sent an express to Hayti for 0 lver le Dain Raybaud, and declined doing anything more until be came; but the British consul was aBS enough to fall into the snare and ex pose all the plans of his government to the preju dice of the United States, in a fUmiug protest. He plainly tells President Santana that the French and English governments must give their consent be fore he can make any treaty whatever, and partloa larly with such a dangerous power as the United States, which, he says, Lord Clarendon and the British Cab' net are convinced has some susoloious design on the Dominican people. When Raybaud came he thought this let or a magnificent piece of diplomacy, never observing tnat this insult to the United States? made so explicitly and offi cially in the name of the British Cabinet? might compromise beyond remedy the commeroitl interests of that country in America. Bnt there is no limit to the blind arroganoe of this pompous Frenchman. He is vain to insanity, and thinks nothing of talking, at the curious banquets he makes for tne anti American blacks here, of "the lesson France and England are preparing to give the Yankees," when they have finished the chastise ment of Russia. This boasting, and the solid fact of the French fleet before bis eves, had a moral force on San tana, and he did whatever M. Raybaud commanded him to do against the United States, however bitter to tbe Dominican palate. Nevertheless the last act of the consuls hai fr aud reset v? on account of the childishness with which the President allowed the Congress to adjourn with out submitting the treaty for ratification, as he had positively promised, and afterwards permitting M. Raybaud to force him to submit it to tne Constituent Assembly that had been convened to revise the con stitution, which body hid no pover to entertain any subject but the revision of the constitution; yet at M. Ray baud's com mind it acted upon the treaty, and pretended to ratify it, (with mtny in sulting amendments prepared by M. Raybaud,) af'er Gen. Cszueau had withdrawn the treaty. Of uxura, ??n of senne knows that the action of that body is null ano vuia. To keep matters from becoming altogether des perate witu the Americans, this government accept ed the advice of Gen. Cazoeau about making tne cor sols commit this interference with tbe United States to writing, which at that time they no doubt con> idere<l of minor liaportanoe, but which haa now a different aepect. It is only to-day they have disoovereJ these " objections in writing" are placing the interference of Frauce and Eogland in each a conspicuous light tbat it will be impossible for those governments to deny it, or to make an honorable explanation why their agents were severally instructed to attack the American treaty, and pnsh the weak and friendless Dominican republic to insult the United States in a manner which neither of taoee great nations would dare offer in lta own name. I heard Senator B? a speak yesterday ef a new letter from the oonsuls still more foolish and com promising than Lord Clarendon's assault on the American treaty. This letter, which was tilgned by the French and English consuls, dictate* toe con ditions on which France and England will mediate a long trn -e with Hayti. All these conditions are levelled at the United Statts, and Hayti is equally to be mediated into subscribing to tnem. These consuls demand, on tbe part ot England and France, that no land in the Dtminican territory shall be sold, given, rented, or lent for any period what ever to any foreign power, and tut no mari time or other establishments be permitted, nor fsctories, nor coal depots allowed to any nation ; nor any treaty he ever made with one which shall contain any s ipulatloos new or different from those no* existing in the treaties made with Fiance ard England. This refers to the article in tbe treaty of Septem ber, which these co'ii-als induoed the Executive f/>y threats and Her Britannic Majesty's war steamer De vastation in frr nt of the city), to break, whi h opened the superb and central bay of Kamanato American commerce, and made its abund*nt coal mines available to your steamers. Franoe and Eag land command your country and mine sir, to resign foiever tLeoe 'oan Ulna of commercial wealth. But will you obey ? The next condition is intended to prevent the Ameaicus coming here to develope tne stagnant riches of our country. It ? tip nates "that 10 ries of adventurers, armed or anarmed, shall sllowf d to land in the Dominican Territory." This would empower the consuls to forbid any paity, though composed but of one family of " un arm* d'' settlers, from setting foot on our a >11. Tbe last article is only a silly flourish to excite the colored c I a* see, by pretending to a superlative csie and evangelical anxiety for their interests. It stipulates that -'the Dominican republic shall never make any treaty which does not guarantee to all its citizens in the territories of this other power, the same treatment, the same lights, the aamo ad vsntrgea and the same privi eges, without distinc tion ot >aoe or oolor." It thla article has any real meaning in favor of persons of otlor, why is it that France and England has Lever introduced it or even proposed to intro duce it, in any of their own treaties for the benefit of tbeir own colored ?objects ? More, how can they pretend they will compel Fanstin to mske " no distinction of race and colo-," ainca all the laws and institutions or his empire rigidly exclude white men from " eqaal rights, pri vileges and treatment?" " Tei) me," eaid Senator B? ?, after giving this synopsis of tbe ultimatum of Franoe and England " tell me. if the American Plenipotentiary ought not to be satisfied with his work? He has placed the executive so completely in the wrong tha*. be can have no cbf lce but to acoept whatever conditions tbe United States may please *o impose. He allosred M. Raybaud to push our Congress into a ridiculous aid nnoc natilutlonal action on the treaty, to order to excuse himself from having recourse to it in future; an) finally be has provoked the stm>id oonsuls into making this ridiculous display of the maiiMont in tentions of their governments towards the United States." What will the proud and powerful repubis of the North say to the Insulting Interference of tbe medi ating Power* t Will tee United States no* sustain, In the face of these rations, the Monroe doctrine and the Ameri can system, of which they have made such haughty proclamation to the world.

This, to jour readers, will seem very hard; bat when they take into consideration the way we an situated, and the fact that these men seldom come onder the ob servation of the wealthy and liberal, and the still more important fact that all French, English and other foreign seamen, when cut away on ttiis coast, an sent home by the R.

We have bad the most delightful cool weather imaginable for over two months ? such we*ther has never been known to have laited so long at a time before. It is clear weather, with a cool north breeze every day. Occasionally a gale ot wind from the same quarter will bow with great fury for a few hours, then it lulls and Ve have fair weather again.

A fall in the price of mahogany freights has again filled car harbor with veesels for mahogany. We an now very busy shipping last year's cuttings, which were unusually large. Toe great quantity of small wood cut his brought down the arias of small wood bo low hi both Englani and America, that it is almost valueless here now! Those who sold to honorable and solvent houses when the price was op, are "all right;" that is, if the houses are able and willing to stick to their bargains, which is not alwajB the case. We ex ject hard times, and plenty of it, next year, as the price of logwood and mahogany being very low, nearly one third of the gangs will be broken np, and wagee will also be reduced from 20 to 40 per cent. Reports are in circulation very generally hen tbat the Yankees are aboat making a descent on this town a la Qriytown, and this absurd report causes some trouble and no lmle anxiety among oar sable and colored population, who fear the object is to make them slaves.
