Lieutenant Hernden'i *r rt and a C rrecti n. la my but oommanica ion, o' Ma'ch 15, we were S? joying the hospitalities of th i good people of the TiBe do Charvia, and dd con' nm to enjoy tbe mm upwards of a week, daring which tune we wen ester loin d In i style known only to theee good hearted and generous people, xmoncst whom allow Me to mention the name of Don Pedro Paolo Nara gaotes, whose efforts to pleaae and the paina takes lor our every oomfort can nerer bs forgotten by hia grateful friends, "k>s Amenctnoa." Neither can we lorget the day we left their lovely little town, when a crowd cf pleasant friends, men, women and chil dren, came flocking to the beach to see ua off, even to tbe ever faithlul Padre? an era in thy life, old friend, when yon of all othen conld forego the ac. customed siesta, short of administering tae host, or aa intrigue with the wife of some delud ed parishioner. Ah.' me u Padre, you were ever a source of amusement to us? a Fal stafi In bulk and wit, a Bsnedick in lore, aad a true friend in the hour of need* In bidding you a long adios, we take with ns the m mem t> ranee of many a hearty laugh, which your droll winks and happy repartee i have brought (?A. Our voy age to this place was nctvery loag -only ?eeupjing an hour or two, when we let go our an ehor opposite the house of St. Antonio, a half breed, whose frank and open manner assures us of a hearty welcome. Our friend's ho aw is a rude frame struc ture, boilt about six feet from tbe ground, without eksed sides, and thatched over with large palm leaves; and although " the equator runs directly ihiongh the epa:e wherein swings oar spacious hammock," yet one nerer suffers aa mask here from the heat as yon most likely will, during the month ef July, in your close city of New York. This is accounted for by the fact that the air here ia so pure and ratified by the ever delightfal sea hHezes, that It never tires or depresses the lungs, hat enters and passes through them freely and with an exceedingly cxhillratlng and healthful action. "Vou may judge from the factor the cheat expanding three inches In little more than six months in this Kgton, whether it De healthy here or not. This cir cumstance actually occurred to one of oar party suffering from a disease of the chest, which, I am happy to state, is now almost entirely cured, and ?ay be attributed chiefly to inhalation of pore, mill, soft. sea air. The household of our host may be considered "not large bat lively." We find character everywhere, ana also on the equator. First, tben, Aatout j's wife, with a tongue like a cir ular saw. whizzing through everything within eanhot eternally? a .wo awn to whom the misused Mrs. Candle was only a pocket edition. Talk, talk, talk? to her husband, Mr sons, to bed,i.to me, the boiling pot, a cr joked ?tick, an humbled lace cur, aye, even to sober white ?nss, who'only purrs content? to auvthiog, every ling ? deaf, dumb, or blind, day in and diav oat, from light of dawn till set of sun, and as mnchlonger as exhausted nature would allow? talk she would. What appeared most funny to me was, that nobody appeared to notice her? not even the tabby ? and she did sot seem to expect they w .uld? Three boys under fourteen call her mother. A hunter ard tbree Indiana, who are kaosn as '? le nvgamen" (India rubber collectors), and your own oom scon dent, complete the establishment. Stay ?let me not fcrget to mention a straight, baautiful I fanned and haughty looking Indian girl, whom ths Benhoria tells me she brought into the world in tiis very spot, sixteen summers ago? here, upon the equator, torn and bied. There, indeed, is quick blood that coorsea through our' heroine's veins. Now, I am not going into raptures ?bout an Indian beauty, nor am I going to try to humbug you into the idea that she waa a goddess, a Venus, or even a perfect mortal, but shall confine myself to soms of her nn serous exploits. Such natural dignity, and yet so quietly haughty, that we all tookquite a reepe-itfu! interest in her every movement. We also maintained our proper distance, more especially Ned, who hints that she significantly patted the handle of her knife at him not k?g since, for some trifling attempt a*, a liberty. Those who have heard the story, that once noon an occasion when there was needed a maid to repre sent the Virgin Mary in some religious procession la Para, and that after searching the whole province ? girl or only nine years was found eligible for tae representation, will scarcely credit me woeu I say that mast likely, had they paid a visit here on the eqaator, they would have had a substitute of six teen instead of nine years. However, 1 don't insiit npon your belief in either of the above assertions. One day we overheard Angela say that she was going to get'ewne ossaie, from which ia maunfav fared a delicious drink much przed by all Bra zilians. Having a curiosity to learn how a girl waa to obtain fruit at the top of a limbless tree eighty to one hundred ftet from the ground, and no larger in diameter than tie spout lead ing water from the roof of your offiw, I de termined to satisfy myself ocularly. Following her at a short distance, I saw her stop at the foot of one of theee trees, and, lint assuring hersel', by a "look aloit," that the fruit was ripe, she very qnlet'y and innocently (without Imagining that heretical eves were npon her) commenced dis robe. laying a*ide ail her garmeats, except one thin oalioo skirt, she gathered the bottom ?t this in front, ?nd then, by a dexterous movement (du ring which I shut my eyes), she had transformed her appeal ance into that of a circus rider, with the exception that she wore no tights. She now makes a rope of grass, and, tying it into a ring large enongh to admit her feet, allowing the bolio* ?f eash to rest against the two opuosite aides of the tree, with her faithful trasardo or hunting knife between her teeth, she prepare* to mount. Creeping the slender tree in her hands, she raises herself up to an erect position, th?n draws her fern ap a half yard, where they are retained by the ring, which binds them to the tree, until she again assumes an upr>ght position, and in this way she reaches the top In less time than it tak-< to describe it, cutting off her bnnch of beuies, aad, with them In one band, she tildes swift ly to the gr and; and, although these trees art cepab'e of bending very muci, they aw eeldom known to break. Angela has ascended and descended sonn Ave or sue trees, his put ber berries into a basket of narrow, long le tve?. (which we saw ber matniactnrs with great skill aad lagennity,) and Is about starting for dome, when she spies another tempting lnscions bnnch whicn hangs some eighty feet over and ab jve a broad run ning stream. In three minutes she has her band npon the fruK, the tree bending within twenty feet ot the merry crtek beneath. Getting extremely nervous at her seeming oeriloue situation. I invo luntarily cry out " OuulaV which brings down npon my upturned face such an affrighted aad astonished scowl, that I begin to think I have spoken before ?y cue. The next moment she has let go the tree, drops lightly into the water and craws up eome twenty yards below; laying oa b6r side, sue grace fully and swiftly propels herself through the flood, her long hair floating behind into the bushes on the other shore, and is off through the wood like a startled fhwn. However, we know how she got the berries. Ifeaelher day, Ned shoulders his rifle tad starts off ia quest of game. About fifteen minutes after, Angela, careleealy, with a sinjrie do*, fellows in his track. Presently wo hear tie hounds, and tben the quick crack sf one of Sharp's best, and the yelpimr pack haws chased a wounded buck into the water Follow him! "crieeAngelo," excitedly, (who of counw is Ihara). "Cnutswlm," says Ned, with a glance of esatsmpt, and an impatient gesture for weak hu manity in general. and the "poor strangsr," in ?articular, shs has bounded into the stream fall ten lest; nulla madly for her game, pushee the dog aside aad plunges her long knife into as pretty a throat aa ever you saw, heads her dying victim en shore, aad by the time we reach the spot is making prep* rattaae to skin bim, modestly wipes her knife on his hide, aad noiselessly retires?abdicates In favor of the Indian who finishes what not one of them could have cosnsaenced or gone through with better. Wa have been fishing with tae same qneer crea ture, who, sitting in the canoe beaide as, would gaiscioaUy Jerk up the fat shining perch and reck Ash, while we scarcely got a nibble. Another day we are informed that a tortarnga at turtle bunt ia about to come off, and our company to politely tfealred to be present. Bows, like unto those used by the North American Indiana, with a bamboo airrow of some live feet in length, the heal of which Is iron, and unships Itself from the shaft wbea driven into any solid body; wound closely around the arrow is a cord of abont the sir.e of a tooatHne, with one end to the iroa head, ths other test to the shaft, so that when tie Iron enters the shell of the turtle It de tec Nee itself from the staff, the latter remaining Hi the top of the water, while the tnrtle s'nklng with the iron ( whi h is of ?hoot three ircbea !q Jergth) ia him, unwinds tie ?trine nattt be irrra a* the bottom of tU*wi; the K?ff, therefore, aerrea aa * buoy to note Um turtto'a whoreabowta when he to wanted. Ember king. we peddled op the stream some dis tance, be?g is iwo oenoee? those in the one abend beat violently on the surfaoe of the water, which bringe up a turtle to discover what oanaee such an Mftaticn. Ac (tela seizes a bow, drawa an arrow to the head, and dl?ch*rma it into the air at an ancle of aoch preoiekn, that it, deecribing a half circle, fidla " directly on the top of the tnrtle'a back." Tbia novel and wonderful method, req airing anch initantaaeooa geometrical calculation ,? ia almost in credible- more so when we aaeert, that they aeldom mien? ont at nineteen aoota, only eae wm loat. Angela'* aim being considered beet, ?he waa Allowed to accure tare' re without an eacape, while the Indiana bad captured the other six. A still more curious fact ia, also, that when the oord ia slightly jerked, the turtle will imme diately rise to the surface, when he ia seized and drawn into the boat. Did you enjoy a water exonraion in the inter! w, Angela would paddle you five mile* with mt a sigh, dance with jou eu-a-vn in the fandango, sing mo dimhas, and accompany beraelf on the viola-, em broider a gain dreaa for the Jut a, or hem your ban* dana; light your pipe between her own raby lipi, and take btr oommiaaioaa ont in sm'ke. Yet never would she loae that dignity or natural graceful man ner which, 1 assure you, so aeldom falls to the lot of a tcvua. We all noticed, on one particular occasion, that there was an unusual bnstleabmt the ciu-tnt, as well as a desire to keep ub at a dlstanca therefrom, which we now take note of, also that our olfactories were saluted wita a delicious kind of smell kniwnaa that which heralds tbe appro* h of a compound de noted as a stew. We smacked cur lips, and waited patiently for a call. It waa not long coming, and we were soon seated cross-legged on the festive floor. My swarthy i eigbbor , whom 1 bad with some interest a snort time before been washing, mould ing into tups a blackish looking mud, and who bad since forgot to wasn h a hands, dove hs pi v as it were Into the dish and deposited some kind of meat upon my tin plate, which he half filled with farinha, and then, to be still more polite, hid fairly mixed it all up in one heterogeneous m ws with t&e aforementioned muddy paw, before I found heir; enough to cry, "Hold! enough!" We all ate heartily at first, until conjecturee were entered inti as to what said stuw consisted of. W*a it clicked? tfo. Was it turtle? No. Was it p?g? No. Was it a hare? Ned (helping himself (or -he fourtti time,) thicks it must be some kind of nice game. No; it is cot a hare. "Teen what ia it?'' we ory ont in despair. Inaa many keya about half a dozen yell out macaco (monkey), ftomethiog mas* ba the matter with Julien and Ned, judging from a preci pitate rush for the creek, where allow me t> lews them with jonr imagination. I have eaten monkey before, and assure jou that it is considered a delicacy amongsttbeae Indians, tbe meat resembltng young pork. There is only one kind of monkey which may be called good eating, aud that is tbe large black species know a as tbe guaribi. 1 did intend to give you a history of the ladia rubber trade of tQfse islands in this le;ter, bat will now have to defer it until my next. By letters received tro<n Para under date of Much 25. 1 learn that my friend and correspondent, D. It. B. Upton, Eeq., leaves shortly for the S '?a'-ea. This may be bad tur me, as he was one of the few mer chants in Para whom one could always h*ve implicit trust and confidence in. However, I sba'l csntiuue to forward to yon through the Bame houss, known aa "Guimeians & Upton." Overlooking my manuscripts the other day, I came across an unaccountab e mistake of mine, wherein it was stated In a le't*r to you that at fail and ohange of moon it was high water at Para at a<x o'clock, when I ought to hive Bald twelve o'clock, I also promised some time since some Brazilian friends to correct a statement of Lieutenant Ilirn den.wbo in his officla! resort ecti led," Valley of the Amazon," vol. l.page 350, sajs ttia; five psr cent of all expoit duties are lor the support of the church. On tbe contrary, no parr, of either Import or export duties are appropriated foi any such object.

Effect of Judge Andrews' Nomination fur Governor ?Chances of the Contest iMtfing \n the House ? Temperance Progress ? The Crops, $-e. In my Eote of tbe 11th I spake of the confused condition <f Georgia policies. That confusion is now more beautifully confounded, and I venture the as teriion that not one of the dozen parties of the dtata is haimoiilous in Itself. I am not able to eav how many candidates we will have for Governor, though we are now certain of three. The Know Nothings have just cloeed a spe cial convention, which mst In Macon on the 27th. and, as the telegraph will have Informed yon, nomi nated Judge Andrews an their candidate. If a wea sel had been slipped into a henjoop it could not have created a greater fluttering amosg tbe pullets than this news did among the " Bummya ' of thl* city. It had been announced through the papers (as per authority) that a convention would be held in At lanta on the 8th of August, for tbe purpose of nomi nating a candidate for (i Dvernor. For this conven tion many of their councils had made arrangements to send delegate!, with a view to units the tempe rance and American parties on Mr. Overby ; but this Macon convention, called, as they allege, for othtr purposes, relieved them of a'l further trouble >n the premises. And, judging trom preeent ap pearances, it is by aft means certain that this party can be united on tbe nominee. I am now of opinion that the Southern Union, or Columbus party, ?U1 also nominate Judge Andrews, which will make him somewhat formidable. But whether they do so or not, I nor feel drain that theelection will go into the Hons?. p>e Overby stoik has been mlng at a rapid rate, and many who were disposed to treat the prohibi tion movement with oontempt at the start, had be gun to fear Lb# renult, and e?eu ickoofl^Ue tbtt, single handed, be would prove too muohror Got. Johnson; but what afflict trie nomination of the American candidate will have jet to be teen. Crepe were never so fine as now ia < ^oe?ia. There has been very little cotton planted nortiof the ChaUshoochle. Wteat is better thas ever known and otto above an average crop. Corn is better than ever knows at tils season. With a few weeks more of rain we will have corn to export from Georgia There is no price established for wheat jet-acme sales are made ia the c nntry at<l while arrne sells as high as II 50, to be delivered } shortly.

In politiot, like many st?unch old whigs ami democrats, he appa lently takes bnt little interest in what is going on waiting, perhaps, tor the ticubliog of the w iters.

It will be se 5 a by referenc? to oar State piper* that the nprnlnaticna for Congteis hava baen mule in all tbe district*. la the Raltegh district we bave Mr. Jaw. W. Sle hard, once democratic defeated candidate for Gov ernor; in tbe Wilmington district, Mr. Read, wio baa gene over to the Know Nothings as a dtrn'ir resort, and been by them nominated. It is strange how many unavailable, unsuccessful and defunct politicians this strange sect has resarre Atonised: A'l tbe disaffected asd soared aspirants for office, of all patties, have joined Know Nothiogism, la a ait ex piling effort to be something? to rale o: rain tbe country, by sapping the very foundations of tha government in its present form, by ignoring civil and religious liberty; la short, they are striving to return to the dark agea of the InqutaUioo, the rack, the stake and tbe guillotine. But it is ncthfie in the Bcuth that such iniquitous doctrines are to socoted, particularly in tbe 0;d North State, where we bave less pas than iu aty portion ot tbe Union. All Ism* ant monstroaitat in religion and polltica a-e eschewed by tne sober, olsci imitating masses of North Carolina. We have no affiliation with humbugs, or t'elr inceadiary asd windy appeals tj ignorance, aelfisnness, or bigotry ot aty kind. Some ibiee weeks ago the democracy held tMlr districtal convention at this place, and renominated tbeir present representative, Thomas Baffin, mtioir a dissenting voice. Differing, as 1 formerlv did. with tte hon. gentleman, on matters of general ex peciency in tne conducting of the national govern ment, I must confess that nW explanations iu hU speech here of his course in Congress baa been en tirely satisfactory to my mind, and, I learn, is so with very many who nai tbe pleasure of hearing bim on tne occasion of his o jening tne campaign in this town, as belie a.lnlel to I bave come to toe conclusion tha', tu<* government moat be economically administered, t'Btno more gratnitha should be glv<?n to large capitalists, thereby crippling < ho postal department in affording man facilities in sparsely settled porticos if tbe country ; and that tne public lanls hhould not be given away to corporations, a*v?' whtre tbe improvements contemplated are matter* of general or national utility. By sodolnT we sha'i keep awav that great drawback to personal and national prosperity, direct taxation, rhi present di emma of hogiand should serve as a bsacon to warn ub from tbe ahoam on which that government seems about to run ashore. Favoritism to titled and moneyed aristocracy will eventually destroy the much boasted British constitution, aad no govern ment will hereafter be silly enough to pattern after iu Tne elements of wbicb it is compjeed are too antagonistic to last much longer. Aa oars is tbe only tree government, with pr >per and well adjusted checks and balances, to preserve it from tbe tyianny of rulera on the one aide, aad mob) cratic dictation on the other, it be omes absolutely necessary that the wise and good, tbe patri otic of all clsaaea of society, should rebuke all ag gressions?from whatever quarter tbey arise- at that palladium of liberty, the ballot box. The Know Nothing organization nuioubtedly is ? bl ><v against religious liberty? and, on the first Tnurslay in August North Carolina will speak out, in tones not to be misunderstood, bet disapprobation of le ctet societies for political purposes, not warranted by th? genius letter and spirit ot the constitution and Declaration of Independence.

Tte canse of education In the State of North Carolina in yean past was left to languish or grow without fostering care. The eons of her wealthy citizens were Instructed by private tutors, or sent to soma Northern Institution. Female education wm greatly neglected, and very fe# were taught the ornamental or higher useful branches. But a great change has taken place within tbe last ten years. North Carolina now bas a sjatem of ommoo schools similar to thoee la tbe Northern States Academies, male and female, have sprung up as by msgtc, in almost tvery town in the State and some I five or six colleges are in successful operation. Tbe town of Oxfotd Is tbe coanty seat of Granville county, twelve mi'ea west of tbe Raleigh and Gaaton Railroad. Granville county is one of tbe largest and wealthiest la tbe State, and iu county seat Is alike noted for its beaatifal scenery, hospitality, end intelligence of the people, and Iu healthy climate. No more delightful spot could be stleoted in North Carolina for aa Institution of learning thaa this place; an 1 the lovers of learning have appreciated this truth before me, and now have a male aad foaale academy aad a female college, all well patrosUied. The Oxford Female Collere, tiKMiib less than four yean old, now has eighty pnptla; mm) it tit Aaptlrte of (bl a;att fly* ft tha t natntud aid which K needa, n moat boob take a prominent position among other oolleges, under the wite supervision of ite able President. But this ia not all that "Old North" is doing for the education of her aonaaad daughters. Masonry ia r either dead nor buried. Though gray with age, it hae the atrength end vigor of the oh, end ia ea ftur aa waa the young child lfoeea when found nestling In hi* cradle of bulrushes. In the northern onV akirte of thia Tillage, upon an eminanoe overlooking the town, ia n fine grove. The apot aeema to have been mane on pnrpoae for college grounds. At any rate, it haa been selected for that pnrpoae. Laat Monday the corner atone of St. John's College ( Ma sonic) waa laid, and in two yean the main building

will oe completed, at which time classes will be formed, and the college commence the good work of educating the aona of noor Maaooa, and all others who may see tit to attend, aa at other collegw. Its benevolent feature commenda iteelf to all, whether Maaons or not. They propose to have in the various claaces one hundred aons of Maaons, to be educited free. The work of endowment ia rapidly progress ing in the hands ot its efficient agent. Among its benefactors I notice the namee of some of the beat mercantile houses In Baltimore, Phila delphia and New York. The oocaslon of laying the corner stone waa one of great rejoicing. People from the country flocked in by hundreds and thou sands. Though seata in the grove were pre pared for a large crowd, not one fourth present could sit down. All aeetned hap py on the occasion, and cheerfully stood wniie bearing a very able addiefls from Rev. L. L. Smith. It was a shott, good, common sense exposition of Masonry.

M. A. S. Our South Carolina Correspondence. CiURi.HsroN, 8. C., June 23, 1855. Celt brui ion ? Battle of tbrt Moultrie ? Parades, Orations , Salutet and Dinners? Return of the Philadelphia Delegates ? The Foreign Military? Strength of the Know Nothings? An Election at Hand ? How Slavery Works ? Grand Wahling ? Commerce, Money and Cotton. In this city the anniversary of tbe bittle of Fort Moultrie on Sullivan's Island, is seoond only to the Fourth of Jaly, and yesterday was therefore a day of unusual celebration. A. description of the pomp and circumstance expended on the occasion, how ever, need not be attemptei, a mere statement of tie tact being enffitfent to a'l who have ever p ?rti cipated in the endeavor to reader glorious the de claration of a country's independence. Tbe bells chimed out patriotic airs, and awoka your correspondent, by the bye, with the utteraice of those vilest ot all sound i which go into the op position of " Old Dog Tray." I wish the foul fiend might fly airay with tie niggers who squill that pie 3e of music about the streets. There wis ? parade of independent military companies, who are composed of very fine looking men? (and apro pos, the men of this city are generally of better look than any I have ever seen otherwheres, whilo tbe wo men ate just as oertainly and as generally c on victe i o : an equal extreme of ugliness,)? and orations rich with large quantities of excellent patriotism ware delivered: one by G. B. Cutbbart, Etq., before tnn military in the hall of the South Carolina lnatttufe in th's city, and the other before the Town Council and citizens of Mouttrieville, at the Fort on Sal'i van's Island. There waa a dinner, and a most delightful bill of fare, upon the Ialsnd, with the proper toasts, and plenty of obampagne to drink tiem, aid there were salutes from the guns of the forts, (the strength and general merita of which forts I will describe to you some day.) There was also a presentation in tbe cky, of a beautiful flag to the Uoulttie Gaards, and with other locally interesting performances the day, or evening, eloeed with snudry suppers, where good champagne and from fair to middling elo quence were poured out with an extravagance that waa giatetul to behold. 1 bave net beard tbat anybody waa hurt through the enunciation of tbe entire programme. Our representation in the Philadelphia convent! <n and t!>e various powows, (I nurse no araent affec tion for the "mysterious individual,") in yeur other cltics, hsve returned, and warranted in aouod con ditirr. Who are the men composing this replan tation is well known to jou. It waa a mat>-rof great political surprise bete that Col. Gnanlnguam tock that trip to the North. In his paper, to be sure, be bad for some time given sufficient evidence for a very certain presumption of what are his true eeiitimei.ta upon the most current politic ii ques tions. Yet he had committed do overt act wn<c& wcnld inevitably and forever convict him of a liking for "Sam." Bathe went to Philadelphia, and for all tbat I can learn acquitted himself as c editaoly, at lesst, ss a very large majority of the delegates present, trom whatever qutttar. After that, his only course was with the "American movement." If he wished it, there was no opportunity for repent ance. Accordingly, he bas come out in straightfor ward advocacy ot the doctrine he proteases to believe in, defending his conversion w<th ail tbe energies in hit power. Tbe fi'&t rerutt of this is, that tbe foreign om pan Its threaten to dissolve their connection with tbe regiment < f which be holds tbecumtnand. I cnlv wifA ibey t ad the isolation to do it; but I do not believe tbey have. Another more certain ia sult is tbat some dozens of his subscribers ii the city bave " Riven him notice" after the first of July, and that others threaten to do t.be same. By way of irdemnity for his loss a couple of d hilars ^nve been added to the tubacription price of tbe piper, ard an appea1 is made to tbe lovers of this country (and tbe haters of every other) for an i' creased and more resolute support." And I am by no menus sure that be will not be herein benefited ra'.her than damaged. There is in this city a feeling whlob a ill not ahow anything like persecution, evea if the object of It should be a very little in the wrong, ant may bap, deserving more or less of censure. Them is bo ki kmg a man afte' he is down allowed tere. So it would be a matter cf no surprise to me if tor every one of "foreign born" who shall stop tae Ntu i, there will be two "natives" to subscribe, and that many wbo are now among Ita patrons, and don't exactly like ita sentiments , will be induced to bold on a little longer. By the bve, I have not informed you of the strength ot the Knqw Nothings in this city at the present time. Indeed, my abdlty to do that might very reasonably be qneatiinea- no'. yet having bad the honor of an introduction to tie new American divinity. But a gentleman who I have not a particle ot donbt knows about it as well as any ether, and in whose word I have unhesitating conflcenoe, told me, a few days ago, that the nam ber of tbe initiated wss from twelve to fifteen hun dred. This waa somewhat greater than I hai anti cipated, though in my trampe aoout tbe city near mtdrngbt I nave occasionally met considerable booies of men who were tot Irishmen, and whose recent rendezvous I very strongly suspected. Bit allowing tbe estimate, the force is not one that will cany the city on a separate ticket, the number of voters being greater than three thousand. Selecting one of two candidates already nominated, however, his election is considered certain. It wss in thi* way that a Senator to the State legislature wss chosen at the lait trial, when a gentleman, who, tbooghof great commercial influenoe, had never before dabbled in politics, worsted one of the smart est and most poptuar lawyers In toe city. Tbe election soon to come off for Sheriff- to wh'ch office more importance is atta-bed here than is oaoalattte North? will, in some degree, test the itrenirth of tbe " new party," in this city. There ue two candidate#? Charles E. Kanapaux, Esq., ted John E. Carew, Em. Th* first is one or the present deputy Sheriffc, e very efficient man, ZmA an avowed enemy of the Know No thing*. Tbe otter bas been somewhat of a politician, waa once editor of the Mercury, fas teen In the State Leg la lata re, and now declares himself not a Know Nothing, but willing to receive the aupport of Know Nothing*. This will be given biro and the inference is, or ought to be, that his heart is with tbe " new party," as his hand may be after tbe election. It matters very Utt e whether he la icltiatcd now or a month bene*. It la quite impossible to find aAy on* who ktowa what will be tbe result cf the voting. It Is certain tbat no to reiansr wil " rally " for Mr. Carew, and it is quite as ceriato no "American" will g1*e support to his rival wfetie tbe feeling oa tbe mbject oi Ham No- 1 tbingisn ic ao well decided that men will very mach don ceitainry tod lxtdi| than usual divide them selves open ->ne side or tb? other. Peopie in Bomb Carolina do not generally CAreto convince the people of the North agaioat their will, tbat there are extenuating oircumatanae connected with an institution io terribly revolting in Its gene ral aspects aa the institution of slavery. We do not thick it worth while to aet against every instance of barbarous atrocity ao studiously recorded in the abolitionist prints, an opposing inatanoe of Undoes* and a fiction. We do not ear* whether the people at the North like the ioatitntion or not. They have do business, in fact, either to like it or to dialika it; tbey have nothing to do with it bat to joet let it alone. Ton have not moj readers of the abolition* let speciea, however, and.I may notice what in other plaoea might be recorded at greater length and with fintter paint. Two dajs ago a gentleman who has occupied some of the highest official noritiona in the State; in fact, I may aay that very ex-Governcr and member of Conjrresa, of whose plantation the Tribune lately famished a description so diacorteoaa and incorrect, was seen walking with bis family in the funeral procession of one of his own slaves, aad I am farther informed tbat through all the weary honrs of the night that terminatea his ex istence, the master and the miatresa ware both ia attendance upon the servant ai upon one of their own children. To notice, too, a ?cene of another character, two young oolored per sons in the cttv, held in considerable estimation. Wx k it into their beads to get married upon the evening before the last, and an I passed I counted about twenty five carriages before the door of the house where tbe oeremony was performed. Commercial intelligence at present is not worth the report. The cotton market for the last week nas been very languid and unsettled, the transac tions being limited, speculators doing nothing what ever. The money market ia as u-ual quiet. There is plenty of money to be had with adequate security, banks discounting freely. For stock transactions, 10,000 (Georgia State bonds ao'd to-day at 96, with coupons of tbe 1st of Jnlv; and 2,000 of the same at 95, with CDuoona off. L. Our Maryland Correspondence.

I have tarried here amid the most splendid moun tain scenery, breathing the purest atmosphere, drinking the cold spring water, and bathing in the clear streams, till I am grown so gross, and baoome so nnwitldy, that you would scarcely recognize yoar meagre correspondent, who, Master Shallow like, teemed "made of cheese parings after sapper." The exercise of riding on horseback, of hunting and fit hing, with the diily bill of fare, venison, brook trout, pheat&nts, and partrldgea, with a young b;ar for dinner today, preceded with mack turtle soup, made of squirrels, and tae thermometer never above 80 degrees, and my oorpulencj is no great marvel. The truth is, "the wayfaring man, though a fool," cannot fail to enjoy good health here. On an eastern slope of the Alleghany mountains, 214 miles west of Baltimore, on the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad, the climate is dell :ious, and health and enjoym?nt are inevitable. The crops in this region promise an abandant har vest, and, from appearances, the combinations of capital employed to bolster and keep up high prices in b.ead staffs, will have to be withdrawn or else be swept away by the fall ia prices. The Montevue Company have, beside their Umber lands, extensive tracts ot glade on which herds of cattle are ted and fattened tor Eastern markets. Im merse as are the resources of their tract of 45,000 aces, in lumber, coal and iron ore, it is scaroely equal in point of future profits to its vm". agricultural productions, while the waats of tbe country require a tannery and other branches of ?manufacture, to work op the raw mtte >ial and supply the home and <fis'.ant markets. Here the mountain oak bark is abundant, with a plentiful supply or water at hand, and hides from the herds oi cattle fattened and slaughtered here, making a tannery desirable and lucrative. A p&tl aid bucket manufactory would supply the valley of tbe Ohio and Mississippi west, and the Potomac and busqnehannah east It is a fine field tor capital and enterprise. An investment ot ten thousand dollars here will yield an annual income ot $2,000, wttn an upward tendency, while tbe cli mate to a man or family is vary desirable for health. To jour den^zets of a crowded city who are gasp ing for a breath of pure air, who have served Mam mon 'till they sre tick and weary ot tha ways of tbe wicked, who need net and repose, a Rood appetite and venitoa and brook trout to gratify it, I would say to them, Mend come u ? hither and sleep o'nigbts, and you will Wees God that yon are above and beyond the reach of those tb rasand vexation* and IDs to which flesh Is heir, among so many old tien-zens in cities. Iam totry to tee that General Hmstin, in re counting tbe incidents ot tbe lattle of Sen Jacinto, baa called forth tbe old ire and jealousy or hia sub alterus. They Bhcu' d respect toe infirmities of old age and patdon the "Unole Toby" prooensity of General Houston, in la>Utg sisges and fighting hi* battles over again; and if be should bap pen, through vat it y or weakness, to lie or or swear, "let the accusing spirit fly up to Heaven's chancery with tbe oath," but let not bis subalterns be guilty of any breach of subordination. Ljt them remember that "old ape and covetousnees are In separable," and toat General Houston only covet* tbe lanrels of Han Jacinto to grace his triampbil march into the Presidency.

Governor Johnsm cm the National Plat f mm ? Jivir the National Men ictie Put Di ton. i I write to state that there were (28) twenty -eight delegates who lemained in tbe State Council at Reading, and not 10, as stated in your article, win adopted aid approved tbe Philadelphia platform. Tteae delegates represented nine Congressional dis tricts. f be Conncil bad not quite 200 delegates in attendance. This will be seen by the vote polled on tbe question of adopting the majority platform. It stood 133 to 53: the aggregate of the two being 186. Governor Jobneon brought with him 93 delegates from Allegheny county alone, which beiog ex ictlv half the Lumber ot tbe whole council, and voting B>Ud,V?ey p'it down the national man on erery qu<s<icn. Those in favor ot toe national platform, knowing that the masses were with them, ask*.! tnat tbe question of its adoption or rejection should be submitted to tbe vote of tbe subordinate coun cils, but itwaa refuted, and tne proposition v< ed doan. The previous queatkn was called on all oc cations, acd those in favor of tbe national platform were aot permitted to discuss the question, nor were they anfltied to submit any amendments to the Northern platform advocated and adopted at the suggestion of Governor Johnson. The majority w re asked to permit those in favor of tbe national plat form, aa a favor, to give tbeir reasons for their v<>tes, but even this was refused.

Division Between the Barnburners and Soft*? Organizations Against the Liquor Law ? Whig Office Holders Anxious for Union Ticket Against "Sam." Ever since the adjournment of the lut Legislatu'a ? the dictatorial demagogues to tr.th sections of the democratic party, who assume leadership and arro gate authority, have been comparatively is repos?, silent, quiescent, except so far as to send letters to Tammany Hall, Metropollt wn thea're, and oilier gatherings of politicians. Daring this period, Haroy and Pierce hare been endeavoring to reconcile former differences, and to prepare for nnlted action at the next Presidential straggle. Tne national ad* mlnlstiation had refrained from turning men out ol office on account of being hankers simply, bat contented itself in deoapltatiog oily those who were suspected of being in league with "Sam" and "Live Oak George." Tbe call for two separate State conventions has dlslpated all hope* or expec tations of amity and unity. After the hards had' turned their call Cor assembling at Syracaae on the 5th day of September, it was believed toat the softs acd barnburners would either call their convention on the same daj , at the same plaie, or that they' wonld issue oo call; but by primary stratagem en deavor to obtain control of Schell's convention. If both organizations bad assembled at Syracuse at the tame time, and tbe respective delegations been c mposed of hones;, literal men, having only the Interest and welfare of democratic principles at bear*, and had none of tbe black ab> litum Van Burcns. Cociranes. Jewetta, Welch*, and so on, been permitted to dictate and contr >1 their councils on the one side, and t be ultra Dick insons, O'C mors, Bradys, Beirdsieys on tae other, measures aad candidates might easily bava bten eiunoiated ana placed before toe party, which wonld have reoelved pretty general eatUfactfoa. Or, bad tbe snfts and barnburners made an eff >rt, and succeeded in directing tho ac'lo i of the conven tion of tbe hard shells, then xney would have sio wa a preponderance of stiengtb, snd have be*n awarded the prestige of authority for ttelr speech and action. But at ether convention, separate and distinct, ban been aunoun ed. The names of t <e ~> ate G >m mittee are attach* d thereto, except that of one gen tlemen in tae Secono Judi cal district. It is not believed beie that a majority of th* committee au thorized the call. The committee stands about equally divided between barnburner* of the real Mmon pure black Buffalo platfirm abolition stamp, and these who voted for Cass in 1848, now desig nated as soft shells. These latter gentlemen, to gether with those holding office under tie admin's* tration,are not in favor of nomtoa'lng and sup porting two separate democratic tickets. They want nnion now, in order that the greater amount of advantage may be , secured ayear nence. Thus as matters stacd at present, and there li no prosoecv of any alteration, it is rendered certain that both sec tions of tbe New Yoik democracy will nominate tickets represen ing their own peculiar views. In every section of the State, organizations are forming lor the repsal of the prohibit >ry law. Old party Distinctions are laid aside for tbe occasion, aid the opponents of that law are uniting upon reliable men for both branches of the Legislature, who will endea7cr to repeal it immediately after the first of January. There never has been any formid able opposition to tbe Malnelawlte*, lor tbe reason that the importers, manufacturer j and dealers never anticipated tbe passage of such a law as is now ia existence. Theumperanoe men baing now placed on the defensive, It will be seen whether they are eatable of de'eno lug their Sebas'op >l asalnst tbe nnlted efforts and determined attacks of the "allies." Bnt tbe opponents of the law must remember that it requlrea a vote cf " two thirds of all toe members present" to pass a repeal bill after it shall have been vetoed by the present Governor? a bare majority will not affeot tbe purpose. The wbigs, and three nrsUy In office, too, are still "bil'ing and cooing" wltn the barnburner tigger worshippers, In the hopes of ace impllshtng a : oa ton with tbem. Whether openly or outeardly itsrdlng together, is of minor Importance, tor from the conduct and conversation of botn, there is a certainty tbat a secret vote will be given for the same tick it now, and eventuate In S3 ward's ob tanlng all the votes of the Van Burens, I'reaton Kings, Abijah Manns and Ben Welchs la 18511.
