The city ap pears regularly built, and the wliiti.-wa.shed walls of the houses contrast* well with the clear red of tine tiled root*. The an.stot ratic |?irlioii of the place eatt easily bedislm gmsh*d from that occupied by the Indian population by tho site an.: apparent cleanliness ol the habitations. The city ia encircled by small patches ot cultivated land, and the varied hues of vegetation in its different stages tends to uirroa*e the beauty of the scene. But let the eye be turned aloft from all this. and it v I encounter high dismal looking precipices, which i-eem to form natural walls to the city. Far, however, above even tlu-*e high mountain, rearing their cold barren hea '.s towards the sky, are others, so gloomy and unencourtgmg in appearance that one turns with pleasure from their unpromising ?-pect in search of an object more pleating to the sight. Nor need he look in vain for this, for a little to the right of the city rises in majestic grandeur the fkmed Illinmni, " The (iisnt of Hie Andes," and one 1 1 the highest and grandest mountains ill the won.)

The : first three or four article* are devoted to scandalizing I the si of (iencrNl Cordovu. and wind up by dcclar i ing him unfit to remain at the head of the govern | mett.

IF rein the Plymouth tad fie vunport Journal, Not. 5.1 Thi# eagerly anticipated event came off on the night of tbe 29th nit. at it* Royal Hotel, Plymouth, uiid was the finest aflair of the kind, regarding it a* u private assembly, that wc have aeen in Plymouth for many yearn past. The ball waa given by Captain Hi.dwn, Commander Pen nock, and the wardroom (fficera of the United States Bteam frigate Niagara, to maik their esteem of tbe kindness and hospitality which have been accorded to them since the Niagara bus been lying in this port; and as a fraternal demonstration of a sense of that kindness on the part of Brother Jonathan, nothing could have been more liberal on the part of the American Union? nothing more gratifying to those who had the honorpnd the pleasure of being present. The ball and simper partook of the nature of a national fete? a frieMly shake of the hand by the United State* with the mother country? for it is well understood thnt the hospitalities were not personal on tbe part of the officers, but national, and, therefore, the more calculated to cement that good friendly feeling which at prt*eut exists, and which we heartily pray may long continue to exist between the two people. We shall presently advert more in detail to the embellishments of the room, but the motto which adorned and beaatified the head of the noble ball room was one which excited the most pleasurable emotions in the breasts of the visiters, and its good taste is calculated to suggest the most beneficent ;c clings. The decorations were remarkable for their great good turte, elegant? we might say gorgeous? and appropriate character, and showed that neither trouble nor expense was considered in their prepa ration. The entrance to the staircase was through a passage of crimson cloth , the sides and roof being festooned with evergreens, the green and the crim son contrasting very finely witn each other. The staircase was also profusely decorated with ever greens. Round the sides of the windows were fes tooned the "Jacks" of England aud America in harmonious combination, while in the window itself was suspended n tastefully executed transparency, in which were combined the arms ot tbe three towns ? Plymouth, Devonport uiid Stonchouse. On the window heat were arranged a number of choice plants. On enter ing the ballroom tbe first thing that attracted the attention of the company was the gorgeous character of the decorations at the ton. On a cor nice extending acroas the room, above the orchestra. written the ^notation from Scripture? "I>et tlu re be peace between thee and me, and between thy pCODW and my people, for we are brethren." Below tuis was another arch, from which extended thirty-one gas burners, on the glass globes of which we re * i itteu the names of the thirty-one States coni po-tegthe American Union. Underneath these again were several large and beautiful stars, composed of sword- and bayonets, and these were surrounded by large ga- jets, on the glnlies of which were painted 4C,the thistle and the shamrock, the national emblems of England, Scotland and Ireland. The siito <?; the room were richly festooned with the flags of the tarious nations? those on the right hand side, immediately over the fireplace, conveying a graceful and oelii ate allusion to the approaching union be tween i'l ince Frederick William and the Prince** B yal. The flag of Prussia and the white Knglish ensign were festooned in harmonious and grace ful combination, and, both being white, they suggested ideas of a bridal character. The conceit v ? - ? very happy one, and attracted great atteution. ? ?n each side of the centre fire-places were ranged circular pyramids composed of nflcs, bayonets, and cut lasses, the first having roses and flowers stuck in their muzzles, and the top of each being crowned by large bouquets of flowers. The bottom or entrance of tbe room was decorated with corresponding taste. On the right hand side were festooned the tlag.< of Knghiud. Prance and Egypt; on the left those of America. Sardinia and Turkey. Above these were draped two boats' unions ? American and Knglish ? fixed upon crossed boarding pikes, and which were j tied in the centres by the pennants of the two conn tries. In the centre over the door was a large scroll, 1 comjK-sed of forty-two bayonets, and over each of ! the other doors and at the side* of the whole were similar devices, oompooed of pistols, banners and eversrroens festooning gracefully the whole. From the ceiling over tbe centre chandelier tbe jMmnanta of the various nations whose Hags were u;ied in the decorations were gracefully suspended, tbe other ends being attached to the sides ! of the room, presenting tbe appearance of a ! varioiifly colored circular t*>nt. Four large square I e?r sections had been marked on the floor of the , room. In the two which occupied tbe top and Isit torn were painted tbe arms of England and America, the place ol honor being by courtesy given to the j former: while in the side compartments were painted 1 th*- device* which ornament the navy buttons of the two nation*. The large pa>-?ag" next to the Imll pom ai,d the t?-a room were also decorated to corres pond, tbe wLole beir.g made available to tbe acoom* 1 t ? f I ?

It is a matter of impossibility to publish the names ' of all who were at the entertainment, home four or five hundred cards were sent out, and as in some cases whole fnmilics were invited with single curds, j at least, judging from the crowded state of the ball and supper rooms, six hundred persons were pre sent. Banquet by the O IB err* of II. M. Ship Im pregnable, at Plymouth, to tut Officer* of the Mimn > a. |Krum the I'lymonth and IV>vonport Journal, Nov. 5.) A farewell banquet was given oil Saturday. 31st of October, to Captain Hudson and the officers of the United States frigate Niagara, by ('apt. Houston Stewart, C.B., and the officers of tne flagship Im pregnable, as a mark of respect for the courtesy and gentlemanly bearing which have been exhibited by the former during their stay at this port, and as an interchange of good fellowship l>etween the gallant representatives of the naval scrvice of the two na tions. In order to show due honor to the guests and I to give more than ordinary interest to the occasion, i the fine old ship was gaily decorated . The starboard accommodation ladder was covered with flags and ! the rail with laurels, while over the entrance port a ' device was erected of the British crown, underneath i which was the word "Welcome," both being lighted i up with variegated lamps. Immediately within tne entrance |>ort the main hatchway was screened by the American flag, in front of which was emblazoned the name of the President, "Buchanan," surroutled by laurels, together with a star, lighted up with variegated lamps. The passage and the ladders leading to the upi>er and quarter uecks were profuse ly ornamented with the British and American flags, while a somewhat primitive but tastesful chandelier, constructed by some ingenious hand, with the aid of two or three hoops and some colored paper, a couplc of dozen of Palmer's comjwHite candles being in the sockets of as many bayonets, served to light the lad der to the main" deck. Over the fore part of the poop and the whole of the quarter deck an awning was spread of white ensigns, alternating with the stars and stripes of the American flag, the sides, from thejkwningto the bulwarks, being composed of the standards of other nations, hung in graceful fes toons. In the centre i>oop staunchion was a most tasteful group of three boat ensigns: an Engligh one of the white squadron, with an Americau oil each side: while ou the top of the poop rail was a neatly carved crown and cushion. Rows of variegated lamps hung from the mils, and the effect of the whole was exceedingly pleasing. As soon as it was dark all the variegated lamps within and without the ship were lighted, while two lanterns illuminated each of the ports on the starboard side, producing a very pretty effect, and making the ship a very beautiful object as seen from the shore. A guard of honor of the royal marines light in fantry and the shin's band were stationed on the poop, while Com. Palmer and the other officers of the ship assembled on the quarterdeck, except ('apt. Stewart, who was at the entry port to receive tne guests. Vice Admiral Sir Barrington Reynolds, K. C. B., arrived on board at ? o'clock, and was received with the customary honors due his rank. In a few minutes after the Port Admiral's arrival, ('apt. Hud son and the officers of the Niagara came on )s>ard, and were conducted to the quarter deck by Capt. Stewart , where tile whole of the officers uncovered, the marines saluted, and the band played a few bars of " Hail Columbia," while a number of the ship's crew, who were stationed in the waist and on tne fore yard with blue lights, at once showed in full relief the blue and gold uniform of the officers, slightly varied by the scarlet coats of the royal ma rines. Among the visiters from the Niagara, were Capt. Hudson, Com. Pennock.Lieuts.Guest, Whiting. Macnuley. Boyd (marines,) Drs. Lynah and Wasliing ton, and Purser Kldridge; from the Agamemnon were Master Commander Noddall, Mr. Hilliard, Lieut. Gra ham, R. M., I)r. Kerr and Mr. Rolstonc. The wlinle party accompanied Capt. Stewart from the quarterdeck to the elegantly furnished chief cabin, i Very shortly afterwards the band played " The Roast I Beef of Old England," when Capt. Stewart took his j seat in the centre on one side, ltaving Capt. Hudson 1 on his right, and Sir Barrington Reynold* on his left, j while Commander Palmer faced him, with the Com- | inander of the Niagara on his right, and the Second Lieut, of the Niagara on his left. During dinner the excellent hand of the ship < played, in a most creditable style, various pieces of music. After the removal of the cloth. ("apt. Stewart, in proposing the health of her Majesty , said it wa* a source of much gratification to him in having to pro|m*e her Majesty's health on this occasion, when there were preseut gchtlcinen who, though talonging t?i another nation, weie yet of the "unie race, possessing the name AngloSaxon Mood, and -tanking the mime language.

English people themselves. (Cheers and laughter.) <'apt. Hudson then observed in a jocular style that America intended to do away with aill diplomacy, and carry out her policy with other nations in a more straightforward manner. He believed Mr. Buchanan i would muke a very excellentTresident of the re pub- ! lie, and he was satisfied he bad a very favorable feel- : ing towards this country. (Cheers). Lieut.

"May the God of Battles, the protector of women and the helpless child, so direct the gallant band who are now serving their Queen aid country so ! nobly in the East, and enable them to inflict that just vengeance upon the barbarians wl io'i they so richly deserve, that fhty may hereafter never at- ' tempt to war against 'he" Christian or ma.'Ba-re help- ] less women and children."

Captain Stewakt next proposed the toast of Mas j ter Commandei Noddall and the officers of the Aga memnon, which was drunk with loud cheers, to which I Commander Neddall responded in a neat ?|>eech.

New Definition of the Odor of Sanctity. I have just returned frdm a trip through the inte rior of this island, and now, with the incurable propensity of an old newspaper hand, sit down to give the Hkkald the result of my observations. I have never seen a finer country, for its Hiit, and yet I have seen many which are usually con sidered among the finest in the world in point of fertility and natural beauty. This is emphatically a jnountain land. A piece of paper crumpled in the hand and thrown on a table, gives the best possible idea of itu configuration. The Blue Mountains raverse it from cast to west, throughout its entire length of 1(>0 miles, rising at the east end in peaks of 9,000 feet high, where the wildest and boldest features of mountain scenery are clothed with win ning soft lies*, by the exuberance of the foliage and flowers which spring from a prolific soil. A fresh and delicious temperature prevails throughout the year in these elevated regions; the fevers which frequently attack strangers in the lowlands are here unknown, and the white inhabitants have the fair and roey complexion of Europeans. This is the scene of cof fee cultivation, and the groves of coffee trees, with their leaves of vivid and shining green, their milky blossoms and crimson berries, their hedges of log wood and dog roses, form no trilling ingredients of the pleasure which a traveller from the cold North existences in this beautiful southern land. 1 need not tell you how the island has suffered eco nomically by the abolition of slavery in 1838. Its exports of coffee have dwindled from twenty million pounds (which was the result of the most prosperous year under slavery) to ten million; (the export for the year ending September 1, 1857, according to offi cial* statistics.) and its exports of sugar and runt have suffered diminution in about the same ra tio. At tho present time, although fully one-third of the sugar estates are either lying abandoned, with their "works" rotting to the ground, or else are di vided into small patches owned and cultivated by the free negroes as "provision grounds," (i. e., plan tain and yam fields,) agriculture may be said to enjoy a prosperity unknown here for "years. The planters are nourishing for tli* tni ?? under the influ ence of high prices and ly leficiai effects of the late reduction of the sugar duty in Amerkw; they are extending the area of cultivation on their e-tatcs, while capitalists a-lvsnce money freely for the purpose id buying iu and re-establishing aban doned estates: in' short, for a slow place liko Jamaica. quite a strong breeze of speculation has sprung up. which I am afraid Mill finally watt such of the planters as are still solvent into the same condition as their brethren. 1 observe that the Colonial Slandurd- ihv organ of the planting in terest ? is beginning to discourage the speculators by presaging a speedy glut of the markets and the return of prosperity among the Louisiana planters. In this, however, it is only carrying out the views of its (nitrons. Mho are naturally anxious to keep com petition out of the field: but there is more truth than it could wi-h in its prognostications. A great indncement to speculation exists in tho Ion jtrices for which fertile l.jids. which have for merly been cultivated as sugar estates, may now bo purchased from their impoverished ow neir. ? Kingston is a most dilapidated old place. Its streets are unpaved aud uniighted. and, at the present season, are mere water courses deeply fur rowed by the ruins iu some places, and filled up in others with drift stones and gravel brought down in the torrents which sweep through them whenever it lains. four-fifths of the dwelling houses are tailing down foi want of repair, and one-half of the ware houses and stores are " to let," without the remotest chance of being ever again tenanted. There is reitl '-r business nor amusement. The theatre had not been opened for two or three years by any regular actors, and there is no society, because visiting involves tlie use of carriages, which very few people can afford to keep or even hire when fliey an' kept by other people. Walking about sui h streets a.- 1 have described is a work of difficul ty iu tlte day time. t>csides being dangerous in so warm a climate; and at night it is quite imnra< tica hlc for females. Consequently nine o'clock is tba lied time of ino-t of the Kingston people. Most of the import trade of the island is done with the United States. and it mtti to be chiefly in the hands of natives, (generally Jews,) and not as former ly Knglish merchants. There is no American house in Kingston except Hut chins ,V Co., who are agents tor our t'alifornia steamers, which usually stop here to coal. At prewnt there are only two American veaaeb in port? one itoor little schooner, the mauler of vfcAoh ht?* liecn obliged to xubmit to the expense of mrven oil hi* hatches, murine protenta and other legal low, iu order to obtain the freight money due on hia cargo, which, it in pretended. i.* dniuaKed, bcuiune a few barrel* Imp pen to be stained.
