TJic Mrllli.il RcrrallliiK In the Unites! H'atei. TO TBS ntTLI OK THE UNITED STATES. Pbjenm a? u KamwiMI?The newspapers in *??? of the AtUniie cities of the 1'iii'ed States have, of lute, teemed with articles hsvng re'ereu-e to British recruit ing in tliii couutry in winch it has been throughout as sumed thit her Britannic Majesty's agents were doing awnething which they had not a right to do, aud la vio lation of your laws. It is due to the government and people of the United ftates, and to all the parth<s concerned, tbsl this matter aliould be tsiily understood. It i? duo to those who may ib-sire to fate service un<ier the British erosn that they should understand it. A few brief expl uiations may, Uierefote t>e useful at the ptvsent moment. The British Parliament pas-ed, a low months ago, ?what is called the Foreign Knlis'ment Act. By this act, her Majesty's go' ernnieut was empowered to raise, either In England or vises liers, a Foreign legion, to serve with the Briti-h artny abroad, under the same rulos an 1 regu lations?the officers and men to be entitled to the same jmv and allowances as those received by British tro -pa. Parliament I presume, had a right to nass this law, wnS be Queen to givu her as*ent to it. British Miuinters have the same right t > act upon it which the American Fecn-mry ef Suite bad to draw into the army whith con quered Mexico, English. Irish, and rjcetchuien, French meu. Poles, and Hungarians. A few weeks ago His Excellency the lieutenant Gover nor of Neva Scotia, Sir John i.aspard l/e Marcha-it, was duly empowered to raise, in Halifax, the capital of Urn Province wliich he governs, regiments to be incorporated hito the Foreign Legion. Sir Gas paid is hiuisel a'sol dier, the son of that General lo Marohant who won the battle of Salamauca by the splendid cavalry charge which Napier so spiritedly records. Sir Garpard his ssen much service, and is the old companion in arms of General Str De 1-acy Fvans, under whom he served as Adju ant Geuorsl in Spain. Instructions, lui.sed on an Act of Parliament, and to be executed within the limits of Biiti.sh territory, it la quite apparent that Sir Gaspard was bound to carry smt. Be did so, in no fur'ive or disguised manner, bu ixi that straigttorward lend manly style which best com ports with his character and that of the Government which he represents He issued a pa Vic notilic.i'ion of the nature of his instructions and. intentions, expressed hi tbe following terms:?

LEWIS M. WILKIN'S. Provincial Secretary. Mow 1 think it will puzzle the most a dent enemy of Creat Britain, the most jealous stickler for the hon >r ?ni peaceful relatl >n* of this country, to find fault witu any thing done by the British government, or by the Lieu tenant-Governor of Nova Scotia. 8o fer, it sill he perceived that neither hsvn done any thing which it Was not tight to do, nr any ac b yon 1 the boundaries of the Itiitjsh empire. When advorilasineats Are published in this country f.ir recruits for the Amei 1 epn army, who question; tlij right of your olflcars to issue them? Who complains if they find their way all over the world? V ho stops to inquire to what Ration th< recruits 1-ei 'ngV Who attempts t, i prevent persjm wanting to enlist from leaving the British Islands or provinces, or France, or Germany, t> com" li?ro for Xhat purpose? Who would think of preventing p -or xnrn, without arms, noi'her enlisted nor enrolled, hut intending to take service abroad, from leav ing Mam ho-ter or Liverpool, nr Liverpool or Glasgow lor tho United Elates? I quite admit that it would oe another matter if any attempt wn-o toad" to organize and arm men in the British dominions for shiurnent abrcad,or for aggve-sivn or intrusion oaa friendly I'ower. That would not he permitted in England, and I tru-it it never will be pernor'cd again by the people of this coun try, although men fully armed and organized, have some times most unacconnahly been thrown across the fron tier, without pn during half'ho excitement in the United Stales that bis been < sured by the appeai atiee of a single BrttLib American gent lem in at a fashionable hotel In N -* "York. So fur I trust that I hsvo mad* it ve-y plain that no Violation!! of the laws of this eountryjhave been com nlttad by her Majesty's government, or oy the Lieutenant-Go vernor ot Nova Scotia. Th"ir acts have been le ;al and aonstituti rial, and in strict accordance with the Iritioily aelatious viUich B'ibslst botwi-eu two great natlmi. tVt ?an afford to respect eoch other, ami each others law, whatever tin ir by-gone . tlfcrences may have heeu But theie is an,ther explauatiou waich i ought t ) give, in all fairness When it is givon I tru^r hat th? American people ami tlieir authori leu, general anil local. Will perceive how little there is to complain of, and how ??reasonable and ungi nerous has been the clamor raised upon this subject. A number of letters had been sent in to the Imperi il nnd I'roviiuial authorities, from Bri i-di oifl ers. from foreign officers, anil trom otlie - gentlemen rest liug in ft is country, who tithe r had seen or weie desirous of seeing service, irouie of i heee gentlemen not onlystitod their own desire to j in a (iveign legion, but expressed the opinion that great numbers of persons, foml of Ite excitement of military life, or thrown out of employ ment by the depressed .-ta'e of comme.cial aflUirs in tuts ?Ouctry, wo ilei followr their example. These voluntiry tilfurs of service neither the British government nor t'ir Gnspard 1st Merchant iovllocL T iey were made by people lit iug in tbis country, who a ipp wed that their swum were their own, and that they ha 1 a right to go out of the I'nlted States as freely u t ier came into them; who were under the i.o jre--ion th even before the passage of the Keciprocity tre ity, tin y might have gone into the lirili-h Provinces to enllsf wf'li no more violation of the 1 iws of this count ry than if they had gone to get a wife, to buy a barrel of tntckerei, or a cargo of potatoes. If these impressions were natural on their parts, what m?uc natural than that the Lieutenant Gov truor of N'ov.t Ecotia should select a person, in whim he hid ennfidnn ?*, to come into the United States to i-co-lai i whether tho?e offer-ot service-ere made in g??l faith: whether the parties wei e gent" men of g sul character, of capacity a id experience; and whether there was any foundation fir their belief that a largo number of the unempl ,y; 1 class.-! here were diai osed to j' In the H itisli arnty ? Sure.Iy his Kxcelb-ncy ho 1 a right to do tbl*, and the pors m so se lected hud a right to comr. 1s t us hope that lie his die charted his very delicate duties witli the common sense and discretion of a gentleman. it. must be confessed, however, th it th" duties were delicate. The person to whom tbey wero coulid 31 thought that he was doing n dliiug very U-iuou . lie Hved in an open and public in..nner?saw anybody wu > nailed to ?re him?and explained frankly to such officers and o her gentlemen as had made ten lers of their ser vices, that rir (ia pa d le Manhunt wis now empowered to accept them upon their lei ig renewed to lit u w.lhin the boundaries of his owu Province. Nor did Nadu guise the expression of his implicit belief that auy num ber ut able-bodied men would be ear .lle l In Nova Ajiti.i, In the tern s of ibe advertisement signed by the Provincial h'ecictary; that any merchants seading, or shipmasters tailing, st< erage passengers to II.i ti'u :. might rely la Illicitly on the l.on r and good f,,ith of tlie lirilisii g iveru merit. If a gentleman IV. m North America cann d say and do all 'hi. in the United States, then what ciu ho nay and do? All this, I presume, was done snd said. If anything more was done and said, in ignorance or iu viola Jon of the laws of the 1 oiled States, I nm not going to dele-id it. What I sue j cut. however,' is. that a go si dual lias b n done and said by un.iutho.tsed tier-ons having m ire zeal than discretion, by rascals suit to defeat the object; by ?pies and Informers?"rested, as all such person.- should he treated, with perfect unrc owe. But lot us look at this matter from another point oi view. The profession of arms is an honontblap-utessinu, and has, since the earliest ages, presented to ttia young and active irrc istible attractions. Again, the veteran soldier is rarely, after a certain peri m1 content witli any other mode of life. Shull it he said, then, th?t republican America will deny to her own sons tue right, if so dis posed, In see n little of (lie world, aid to win ci (iu-tion in the civilized armies of Europe? Stall it be said tint when an old soldier drifts, by i he accidents of life, or with the storms of ren lu'lou, within the chinned circle of this republic, he must never serve even his < pa country again l That " who enters here must shut out hop.*"? must give up ambition, allegiance country, (lie pride o. race, the noblest feelings of our nature ?

The Wnr and the New York Merchants, SI'KCIAL HKKT1NO OK TDK CHAUUKR OK COMMERCE | IN HKKKKBNOE TO THR ACTION OP TUB BKlTIdH CONSUL IN mZlKGI TUB BARK MAURY. A special meeting of the Chamber of Commerce was held yesterday at neon, to tslte action on the seizure of the bark Maury, in October last, on suspicion of being fitted out as a privateer to sail under the Russian (lag, and 1o take such steps as might he deemod necessary to exonerate the owners of that vessel and the Mew York merchants from being engaged in unlawful enterprises. Mr. I'KtjkTuu 1 'Kitit, on taking the chair, explained the object of the meeting. It will be remembered, said h*. that during the month of October last the bark Maury was seized by the United States District Attorney, on complaint of the British Consul, charged with beiug fitted nut as a privateer, to commit depredations on British vessels, under the Russian Hag, and in the pay of that government. Subsequently, the vessel was released after a few days detention, nothing on hoard having been fouad to justify the suspicions of the authorities. The fact of the seizure of the vessel, and the papers le'ating to it, were sent to lord Clarendon, and when Mr. Buchanan called upon him for explanation, lie was sbowu these papers; thereftre, the imputation still rests with the people of Ivigland thit the owners of tho bark Maury are culpable iu this mat ter, and it behooves the merrhiuts of New York to in quire into tho facts and allay the unnecessary irritation that has been excited in the, minds of the people of Kng land, and show that they have no sympathy with lawless enterprises. The Maury, as was well known, was built for the China trude, aud there was nothing in her con struction or equipments to justify the suspicion attached to her; jet while that ffeeliog remains, it leavoi a stain on the commercial community of New Yoik which It should endeavor to wipe out. Mr. i'eiit, ia conclusion, hoped the Board woulo lake immediate action. Musks U. CiiiNNKU. offered the tollowitig preamble and resolution, to test the sense of tho m je'iti; :? Whereas it appears f,*om Information derived from re'lsble sources, tlutthe representation mide to the British govern? ment ret j/eoilntf the lurk Maury which was seized at Litis pottln On obor last, oil eusflc on of being fitted out as a pri vateer to cruise under the Russian flay, is one of the causes wh cli led to the recent bli'h excitement. in Bngl ind; and whereas, It.

Mr. (,Ui.v\EM. pfttd that Home of the facta were ai .toady botoio I he public. In hi." opinion, the cou.-e of tbo Hiiti-li consul wus most unteisonible, and he was blameshle for much of the feeling llsat cxlstod. It w >ul l be usrlc-s 1 i gtvo any facta until the <sOmmi"oe had ro pe r ed then tboy would be legitimately public property The public should know, continued Mr. Orlnuoll and the people of England should know that New York mot chants aie not in the liabit of engaging in unlavful outrrprUet. Mr. Ids was not eonviucvd l'ho action of the Biarl and the lacts Fhoud go together. Mr. Jonx A. Stevens siid that it was well known to tho merchants that the M?nry wus no*, fitted out ftr any piratical excursion. as the owners would not be ongue si in any such nefarious t tan suction, yet the suspicion hid gone f rth. It muRt be that agents of ths IJri'i.sh goveu inirt ln this country have Home justification foe what ttcv have done; if not, their action shontd be condemued. All tiie facts, however, should lie knowu before an ex pictsion of opinion * a,, h id on that j oint. Mr. IJvK explained. Ilt> favored tho movement, hut Wan'eu light.

It appears that the season has, throughout, been extraordinarily far arable, and the grr<an<j planted in corn has produced *11 that it had the c opacity of doing. The quantity of fodder saved is unpre?,<e,ientcj) an,i 0j ex. cellent quality. The copious rains canned an astonish!tig developement of cornstalks and bjades, which make, as the gentlemen i* your agricultural department know, first rate food on which to w\nter "stock." But the wet weather was so continuous as to iajure the autumn pas tures. The grass is rank, but not nutricious, aud the cons?' ucncc is that milk la not of average richness, and therefore batter 1b of poor quality and very dear, selling at 26 and 86 cents per pound, which is at least twenty five per cent above the ordinary figures at this season in J.his market. The farmers of Southwestern Ohio, North ern Kentucky, and Eastern, Southern and Central Indi ana, have, to my knowledge, sown more wheat and less barley this Call than any year since their land was cleared. The breadth of ground over which wheat has been sown is astonishing, while the barley fields will ba scarce next harvest. The leaders of the republican party of Ohio, and the masses of that persuasion, too, I believe, think the Gover nor elect of this State, Salmon P. Chase, Esq., is the only man Identitled with their party who is at all eligible as a Koithern candidate for the next Presidential canvass. It is their universal sentiment, that Seward "'wont do," and they do not hesitate to so express themselves. Your p ( tlcnlar friend, Seward, can never carry this State, rest assured ol that.

"Things is working" here in Kansas, according to the words of the wise man, who said " there is no end to ail the labor which is done under the sun." In the absence of Judge l.ccompte, the clerk of the court, and the adjourned Grand Jury, a prisoner in our jail, awaiting the action of the adjourned Grand Jury, prior to his trial, took it into bis head to lock the jailor in, and him self out, of prison, and make tracks tor the prairie. It seems the fellow was a genius. Ho had ail summer car ried on a large cattle and drover's business, riding up boldly and selecting the fattest aud best beeves from the cattle of the ownors, and in sight of these sovereigns, and 'hen bringing them here and disposing of them to our butchers. The butchers have been supplying and we have been eating this stolen beef all summer, not dreaming that we, as " partakers, were as bad as the ibief," according to the old Presbyterian maxim. The prisoner was chained, but he managed to slip out, lock he jailor in, took off his irons, and vanibhed. The jailor bad to be cut out, after several hours commit ment, sufficiently long to lot the people see there won n > collusion, and afford the prisoner time for a safe deliver ance. He is gone, and God's blessing go with him, for such a genius is not found every day to supply a poor starving set of squatter sovereigns with beef, aud then acquit himself without the intcrrentiou of the adjourned Grand Jury and honorable Court, thus saving the ex penses of a trial, which would have amounted to more, probably, tlian all the ncel be bail sunoc. There was another man shot 'load in Doniphan a day or two sinee. It seems that l'atriok i/iughlln had pub lished, oyer bis signature, something of a secret free Stale organization existing here; and Judge Codin*?a Missouri free State resident of Kansas?went to him, to have hiui disown or take it back. This being rehired Judge Collins snapped a gun at him, when he (Ijaughlin) drew a pistol and shot Collins ihrsngh the heart. Col lius expired immediately, when ills friends shot l-aughlin through llio neck, who is not expected to recover. Next week we may expect the terrors of the law to sih nee these outrages and breaches of the peace?for Judge Lecompte, the Clerk, and the ndji>uruod Grand Ju iy, will not only as-enible. hut there will be a mass meeting of the law and order stamp h^l I io this city, according t J previous notice, 'o enforce the laws.

Governor Shannon has also come out, defining his prsi th n, and denying the slanders of the newspapers from John l'yier's time down to the present, in two epistles, one it long, and the otbor a short one. It seems the Governor lias not committed himself ou the vexed i)ue s tion, and has ODly followed high judicial authority and "in the footsteps o! his illustrious predecessor." Gover nor lieeder con veind the I.egl-1 ituie, decided upon the c eotion of itB members, gave them certiliSates, and de livens] 10 them his massage. The Governor goes over his Mexican diplomacy, and avers that Mr. Calhoun com milled a id under; and as regards the "red petticoat," said to have been presented to him by ttie ladies of Chili cothe, he says no such petticoat was ever presented to him, "his heirs, executors, administrator-; or assigns."

We have looked for them, and looked in vain. But by yesterday's mail we received the following:? FBOTR8T. According to a statement in the Itradiis., of October ?6, it appears thnt a conference, compered ot several rao bina and private persons, lately met at Cleveland, O., and 011 mo lion of the Rev. Dr. Isaac M. Wise, of Cincinnati, dopted the following part of a platform:? '? Tnat the Talmud is acknowledged by all (Israelites) as the legal and obligatory commentary of the lllble." We, the undersigned, having solely the interest of oar holy religion at heart, respond to the solemn duty im I osed upon us, of offering our most decided p rote it against the said platform, and on the following grounds:? It is an indisputable fact that a very large portion of Israelites, who are admitted to profess a profound know ledge of sacred Scripture, and whose attachment to Juda ism cannot l>e questioned, do not com-idcr the talmudis 1 xegesis of the Bible, which so frequently clashes with the tpirlt and text of scripture, as legal and obligatory. Even the most distinguished biblical scholars of antiquity?Inn Eton, Maimonides, Samuel Ben Meir, Ievi Ben (lershom, and others?are net seldom at variance wi-.h the talma lie interpretation of holy writ. Is it, therefore, justifiable, that the great majority of our fellow believers, who carry out Is practice such anti tjilmudic inter pretations?who, for instanoe, shave their beards wKh a 1 aver?should he denied the name of Israelite? The members of the Herman Rabbinical Conlnrence, who counted among their number theologians of acknow ledged reputation, took a decided stand in many of their propositions and resolutions against the whole talin ido helarblc exposition of Scripture. Can it hence bo a IB rul ed that there men haveceu-ed to be Israelites ? The said platform would condemn Judaism to a per petual stagnation, consign its countless treasures, avail able for ail times, to toe uarroqr confines of an exclusive Jewish nationality, and expose to derision its entiro his torical developement, as well as the incontestable results of a wholesome biblical research, 'l'ho doclared legiti macy of lalmudic authority cannot heal, but on the con trary will render permanent religious condition, which consists not in thepllSWff conlllet of parties, but must be sought for in the dcmoralliifig ef fects of an antagonism between the >ry and practice, and in an oppoi ition between prescriptive rules and the un yielding nature of re'igious and social wants. With the Talmud in hand it is 110 ioniser possible to ob'alntlle honorable mid efficient mi a is o> healing the gaping wound in (lie bem t of Israel, unil leforuia bearing on public womhip anil the general conduct in life, c.tu at best !>?? only smuggled in by a disrcga il of the la v, and a resort, to juridical trick ami chicanery. An article in a recent number of tlie lera-lite oilers a striking example of the manner in which 1 ohirms are inten >ed to be intro duced in ctmlnrmity with the eui 1 platform. It is there proposed to obviate the force of the biblical enactment, koonti a-tbe leviruto biw respecting Ohiilizao, by means of the prearranged agreement, that should the husband die without. issue, ihe "arriage ahull be considered as null and void from the date of its consummation, mi I consciiuently the parties are understood as having lived in a state of concubinage. Sucha proceeding is certainly rather calculated to undermine than to increase the estimation for our religion and her institutions. Attempts of this kind, which endeavor to re-enclose the Jewish life current within tbo inanimate forms of bygone tatmudic views, show in the clearest light the dangers which threaten the most sacred provisions of the law. Instead of unlocking with great pomp every door and closet for the entrance ot the Talmud, and at the same time to pro vide a mi nus of escape from its powerful grasp by sums buck window, we, on our part., prefer to deny, in the most unreserved and emphatic language, the legi dative au thority of the whole Talmud, and declare its conception of biblical legitimacy as an onini oi which has been left far in the rear of su improved reiigiou i knowledge. We nevertheless confess our profound regard for thetalmudic wr itings, on account of their rich exuberance of contri butions to a religious progress, aud t oo excel lout forma tions which Judaism hail engendered during this stage of its developement. We ali-o appreciate peace In Israel as a predial bo m, but a peace which nece.'iarily degrades Judahrn, our greatest boon, appears to us to be too dearly bought, cud is iu Ihe highest degree of a precarious tenure, when a few men in the name of collective Israel set up articles of fuith which douy to dissenters a place la the communion of professing Israelites. May tho free American Jsrael keep a stilct watch on hierarchlal movements which would again forge its chains, though un or the m >st eharmipg lullabies of pence, now ii the guis? of dogmas, and ere long by a Minhsg Amo. ica. The plan of a consistory whicii ? a originally intended to ho esta blished, is un omen of significant import. The great work of peacemaking bring once finished, and evorytuiug brought under one hood, it would lie an ea-y matter U> charge this hood into a bishops mitre?and nothing more rcai onable hut that the great united flock mas', neu.l have a chief pastor?and ail is ready for the advent of Jewish popes, l.et us rather thank God for the blessings of religious liberty wo enjoy in this country, equally secuied to all di-nominaii' n< and uiay we not put a yoke on our owu shoulders which would interfere with the full expansion of the old and reformatory Judaism, and eventually reduce both to inisernhle caricatures DR.

This looks as though there was a very " big nigger in the fence." A few days since tho President of the Com pany stated decidedly that they were nut in want of mo ney, that their finances were pe-foctiy ea.y, &3., Ac. The tbject of the above circular is, in our mind, transpa rent enough ; and that ta a desire to depress the market value of the stock. The amount reported to be required is $116,000, stnl the bonds said to be due on tiis 1st proxi mo are held by Cornelius Vanderbilt. The Company have carefully avoided to state in its circular the amount required. The mystery which surrounds all the financial ? perations of this ouncern is sufficient to destroy its credit. The Company's worst enemies are in the Board <r Managermnt, and the stockholders will look in vain 'or the first dollar of earnings until some radical change s made in the adinini tration of its affairs. The above is only rine more of those financial dodges the manage ment have so frequently resorted to, for purposes best known to themselves. It is our opinion that there was not more necessity for tho injunction applied for some time since, than then appeared. There has been fine pickings in the way of salaries and commls-ions, and so nr the entire concern has heen managed solely for the brnelit oi a few individuals, who arc rapiily extracting its very life blood. Iii a few week* tbe Legislature of the State of New York will convene. The members hero been elected, end it 1* pretty we 1 known how the partlo* stand. We have a great deal to nay to the memberi elect before they meet at Albany for busine.ss, and in the meantime it would be well for them to turn back and poat themselves np regard - Irg the history of the great money power of the State?tbe New Yoik Central Railroad Company. As this company has played ari important part in State politics, aod will again be found in the market with its money, aeeking new grants and new privileges, it wouid be well enough for new mem bers to look into its history, that they may not he ig norant of the monster when he appears in the legislative lobby. All deprecate the position to which the Stato ot New Jersey has been reduced by her railroad monopo lists, and no calm, lelleeting mind can fail to ob seive that the State of New York is now cursed by a more ihautelohs monopoly in that of the New York Cen tral Railroad, before the consolidation of the various roads now composing the Central line, none of the stock holders complained of a want of business, nor of the divi dends paid on the stock. Their charters were granted them upon the express conditions that their roads should in no way inhrfere with the State works, and should not be allowed to carry froight during the season of canal navigation: and it was upon these express terms that the charters were granted by the State to these various companion. Their legitimate busioers was to be the carrying of malls and passengers, though from the latter the canals at the time derived their chief profits. The roads were built and put in successful ope ration; no complaint was then made of inability to pay dividends. On the contrary, the various roads paid handsomely, and added yearly to their surplus profit-'. But this was not sufficient to gratify them?they muat have the privilege of carrying freight through the year, but at the same time shrewdly professed their willingness to pay the State tolls for the privilege. Not yet sutisfled, by means of impure legisla laticn the toll clause was removed, an] they became merciless competitors of the great works of the State. They bad not yet reached the climax of their ambition? there was something still wanting?tbe power of thete roads was somewhat divided, and something more was necessary to add to fheir gigantic strength, sad then came the great scheme of c >vr*olidation, and by the same unwise and impure legislation the crowning point of their ambition was attained, and then they boasted openly of their ability to control the State. With one man at the head of a capital of some $-7 ,<"00.000, the scratch of his pen or the cod of his head could turn to the right or to the left tbe representatives of our three millions of peo ple, and thus fairly block the wheels of government. This shows with whet tenacity they grasped for power, and llieir ambition to become a great political engine. The Slate for the test four years has been struggling gainst this monstrous power, exerting itself to rescue its own public works and place them in a position to sue ceirfulij compete with this unscrupulous antagonist. The revenues rf the canals, In consequence of the privi leges granted this monopoly, had become Insufficient for the various dralta mad" upon it; hence an effort was made tn retell the roads, but how vain the attempt! These "railroad gentlemen," of whim the Journal speaks so lovingly, soon put n stop to that, and the re sult was that all the banking and iusurance corporations of the Htate must he subjected to a tax in order to plea-. thia "honest and modest" corporation that professes so much friendship for the " widow end orphan," aud one half at least of this onerous tsx is paid by the city of New York. Now, by wbosesid was all this rascality?f,r eeranu. eno milder word?accomplished ? And which are the mouth - pieces of this monopoly ? Can any tail to detect? Is it not known thst the Albany A ryu* is controlled " body and soul" by the " Railroad King " Do we not see that whatever t!i? A n; ,u says in regard to tha "grasping Central Road," finds a ready responsive echo in tbe Albany Journal, All plain enough. Next comes the 11 penny Auk If
