M. White ' Lt. Colonel Kelly, Major Willard, Adjutant Da. kin and other officers. The muster wee, highly r creditable to the Municipality, for naarly two thousand men appeared under arms, among whom Is were several uniform companies that would be rt an honor to the oldest corps in the country. The gallant Washington Guards, under their old Cap tain Honey were at the right of the line, while the ti Louisiana Greys took their place on the left. Of these two established and elegant oompanies it is needlees to speak, as their soldierly appearance, F and discipline are so well known. Capt. Johns' companyofOrleans Dragoons, now attached to the 4th Regiment, were also there, and by their martial bearing attracted much notice and high commendation, although they did not mum. rerverystrong owing to the unusual degree of f sickness in the company. One of the most grati fying portions of the Review, however, was to see the new companies turn out that had eo recently been formed among our spirited young men. Of these there were no less than five, and all embo- i died within two or three weeks. The Louisiana Rifles, Captain Pickrell made a t most elegant display in their new uniforms of green. This spirited company, although only two weeks in drill, might have been shown well and I proudly even in the presence of veterans. They marched with the precision of old soldiers, and I heir whole manual must have been admired by the [verieset martinet in the regular service. Thy Rifles formed the centre, and had the honor of I bearing the State and RegimentalColours through. out the review. Besides these there were several other new companies on the ground, although they did not appear in their uniforms, owing to the brief preparation allowed them. There were the " Black Watch," Captain Taylor, but under the command of Lieut. George Pore. Thieeompany presented an elegant appearance, for although not in military array their citizens dresses, their march, and carriage, were as uniferm as though they had been long embodied. The Lafayette Guards, Capt" Dalahousie, mustered strong, and gave evidenceef being eventually a very fine company. The Pulaski Cadelsr recently called the "Delawaresn, were there under the temporary care and charge of Mr. Shepherd of the W eshington Guards, although regularly commanded by Captain Pickett. The guns were admirably served by the new company of the Washington Artillery, Capt. E. L. Tracy, and the whole effect of the scene was such as our Municipality may well be proud of. Before the 8th of next January, not only will all these com panies be completely drilled, uniformed, armed, and equipped, but many others new in embryo will appear on parade to give full effect to the honors shown to that immortal day. One of these is the Governor's Guards, Captain Cross, whosm uniform, horses, and equipments could not be procured in f time for yesterdas's " turn out," but the gallant Captain was on the ground, and by his chiralluus, and soldierly aspect presented an admirable speci. men of what may be expected when the full company is seen upon the field. The new Militia Law undler which this great Simprovement in our armed olurce has progressel

oe and still progresses, to daily commending itself to all well judging atme. The great neceessty for ;disciplined force int a commtunity like oure ,o pal pable to a1ll, and ic promptitude with wlhich the law has been complied with ias ot less a proof it t in alate necesstty, hllan ol he good senste ofour citizens inl so cheerullyv compnlying with its enact. ments. Great credit to due to the oliterse of the Le Iienta for the great exertions they have made in toserring the mlllitary ardour of our sptrlted youngmeni, and in assistmg to organize an many unllrnl comlllpatnies, that in a few months our mllu incipality truolps will not be surpassed by anty to the Union. Col. Kelly, Major Willard, and Ad. jutantt Daktn have been indefatigable, and deserve tile warm thanks of all their Iellow eitzens. ti Not an appearantce of disorder, or even of a. intdecorum, was manifested throtuuout: all seem ae illpressed with the necessity ol obedience and atientiun, and even tile uninittiated citizens ell. doavoured to make up bty care, wlat they lacked ht in practice. On the 8th of Juonary, the uniform companies of the lourth Regiment of Louisiana Militea, will be a credit to any city in the Union. ' BAD WATER. Although we have been for two weeks past apprised of the existence of one of the greatset evils under which a large city can labour, we have desisted from raising our voice against it, purely from the hope that the cause was temporary, and would be remedied by the parttes concerned, from a sense of publie duty and justice. We advert to the shamefully impure state in which the water is sent through the pipes, and hydrants, for the sup. ply of the city. If there be one means more con. ducive to general health than another, it is an ample supply of pure water, yet from some cause or other the element, as meted out by the Com mercial Water Works, for some time past has been unfit for human use. There is scarcely to be found any one citizen, dependant for his supply upon the Water Works, but has been obliged to put up with a filthy fluid which even cattle would refuseo to drink. Why this is so, we do not now take upon us to say, but that it should ne be so requires little logic to prove, and losee to make believed. The Water as now given by the "Com. mercial" is unfit for food: it is impure even in aspect, is nauseous to the palate, and filthy to the senses. The citizens are not to be poisond by wholesale in order to save the Water Works from the expense of more frequently refreshing, cleaes ing, and filling their reo..ruitr. Though mea be not all chemists thtey know full well that Misil sippi water when left tn a stagnant body for a length of time. is unsuited to the health and uses of man; and we hope the directors of the Water Works will, now that they have learned the exist. ing evil, save un the rurtner trouble of prosecuting this complaint, and our citizens generally from stench and impurity, with their cosequent un healthiness, by giving-as they are fully capable of doing-an abundant supply of fresh and whole, /suie water. .3E The St. Charles Theatre opens on Monday without fail. Many of tie actors have already arrived, sufficient for a commencement,and others are daily heard from, or are pouring in. On fSaturday weshall be enabled to give a list of the Company, and some slight sketch of the ensuing Campaign. Mr. Barrett has already sailed from Now York with his Camp Street Company, which is both full and complete. Of the talent of its different mom. bhers, the northern critics speaks in terms of high praise. Many of them are already known to a large portion of our citizens, and the strangers cutome recommended to us by the best of characters. With two fine companies at the St. Charleh and the Camp: with both theatres entirely, and ele. gantly re-decorated: with an abundant supply of novelties, and a liberal supply of the best artists our conming theatrical season is bound to be one of unexampled brilliancy. Ellen Tree, Celeste, Clifton, Barnes, Shaw,-Booth, Forrest, Power, Finn, Browne, Scott, Barnes, cum murtus oski&, form a galaxy ol stars seldom ven is any one winter. 97 Nearly forty vessels bound to this pert from tile North are yet due. Many of these have been detained by calms, and many more by adverse winds, and stormy weather, lately so prevalent upon our coast. The reeent change will doubrtess bring many of theme involuntary truants into port, and with them will coma many a wished for old friend, and many a welcome stranger. A few t days will doubtlessa produce an extraordinary dif- di ference in the business aspect of our wharves and atresets. Judging from the multitude of invoices, r bills of lading, and other commercial intelligence already received, these absent ships will bring to our port so large a quantity of goods, that trkde will have a moot unusual, and sudden impetus The season will begin briskly, and no doubt will continue active throughout. We may well con* gratulate ourselves therefore on tihe opening of a a fresh and most prosperous season, and with the reaction ever consequent on such a depression ae * have lately experienced, we may fairly eateu late that the success of the coming year will remove entirely the losses of the past. 0..-Jack Frost Esqr., that most welcome visi. tor, has been seen in our neighborhood although not officially announced among our city arrivals. We have ist on positive, dependable authority that Ftrot was seen on the Metairie Ridge on Tuesday morning last. We would not so positively de elare this setting in of "fall weather" were we not perfectly persuaded of its truth, from the correct sourea our information come from, backed by the experience of all long residents who are fully aware that Frit is always found in the sub urbs, before he visits the city, and that too from palpable and evident reasons. We are therefore perfectly satisfied that all fears of an epidemic are at an end, and that our absent aitizena may return in perfect safety. That many feel and know this fact, is evident frem the number of fresh fcaes congregating in our streets, and the, downcast, disappointed looki of so many of our MD's. Their gigs have long bean sacrificed to pay their horse I feed, and now their uncalled for stockeof drugs and fluids have as melancholy a look as empty I bollte have with more convivial cits. will be perceived that Mr. Caldwell has proposed an Ordinance for paving the majority of the yet unpaved streets in the second Municipa lity with cubic granite, or hexagonal blocks of wood. We would willingly go into the argumsnts in favor of this proposition, but hope the public spirited proposer will find some way of letting our citizens know the reasons that prompt to achieve this great public good. Why does not the Commissary of the 3rd ward it ee to the removal of the many annoyances now d existing in his district? Numbers of thestreets in]his whereabouts are gobstructed by pales of irub. bish, steamboat shimneys, and other nuisances which have remained untouched for weeks and weeks, and are yet unnoticed, and likely to con. tinue. These obstructions should have been long h since taken away, and we hope we shall not be again obliged to advert to their unlawful presence y by breaking our shine over them at night, or list a tsning to complaints of the neighbourhood all day. 0 Our whole establishment is filled with white washers, painters, scrubbere, and others of that genus, who whtenecer they begin to set to rights are stirs to set to wrongs. The Council proceed ings are so lengthy, and so intportant, that they i occupy the greater portion of our columns; and ' from the paucity, and meagrenees of the mails, we t have ar little intelligence that is either interest ing or agreeable, that we are compelled to make our editorials somewhat too brief to-day. When II we are clearf f our rubbers, and scrubbers: ni-en we have less legislation, and more news, we will a, endeavor to make amends to our readersby givinc 1 them all that i ilmportant, all that is agre;.ab'e, and more that is new and strange tihan any Caleb .I- Quotem would require in a iwelvemonth. tri Many uories we see are afloat regarding th. Sunkhappy duel which took place at BIly.u St. to Louis on Mlondaoy mliorning. Our object in nam dc ing the matter is not to enter minutely into the subject, but to correct somle of tie nmany errors that have crept into the press upon this subject. The parties quarrelled on Saturday, and were o Fiound over to keep the peace within this state l0 Louisiana. Tnis was the reason for the journey to the Bay, that place being tn lMiasiasippi. TI.ey ad fought with broad, and not small swords: there ' was but one blow given by each party: the ed thrust of one took effect in the lower part of his ad a versary's abdolern, close upon tile groin: the blow ill of the other fell while dietinded on the lunge, ma king a most severe cut through the right shoulder, and slightly wounding the head. We rejoice to s learn that the wound of the former, Mr. C- 1, ae has not proved lutal, how his adversary fares we o have not heard. While our own city is absolutely revelling in the enjoyment of robust health tidingeof sickness reach as from all quarters. In Charleston the Strangers feveris committing awful ravages among the la boring people lately arrived there. In Louisville, we also learn, there is some sort of fatal fever which carries its victims to the grave in one or two days. The city is extremely unhealthy. In Knoxville, Tenn., a fatal epidemic is now raging, and has carried offlarge numbers of the inhabitants, inclu ding the post master, Capt. Crozier. In Florida, also, there is much sickness, and secounts from the troopsare greatly disheartening. The South Carolina 6 per cent. State Bonds, is sued for the re-building ofCharleston, have been readily sold in England at 95, Gen'l. Hamilton having disposed of a million at that rate immedi ately on offering them. ..lrmy and Navy.-The let regiment (10 com. panies) U. S. Infantry aerived at Plattsbarg on the 6th inst. Col. Worth has been appointed to the command of the new regiment (the 8th) and has chosen Sackett's Harbor for his head quarters,. Col. Cutler has been ordered to take command of Fort Gibson. GEERnaL ORDER.-An official note fromthe Ad. jutant General's office, Washington, under date of September 6th, directs the several field and company officers temporarily detached front their regiments, for service on the Northern frontiers, or elsewhere, and all officers absent on leave, to proceed without delay to join their proper regi ments and companies in Florida, the Cherokee country, and the southwestern frontier. Thegra duates of July 1838, appointed second lieutenants, and subsequently ordered to service in the field, are to join their respective regiments without delay. NAVAL MovzEwxNs.-The frigate Constellation d sloop of War Concord will shortly return to the North from the West India station. The fri. gate Macedonian will be the next flag ship of the Weat India squadron. Commander Breese has been relieved from the Ontario, and Commander Williamson, from his orders to the Vandalia. Commander U.P. Levy is under orders for the Ontario, and Commander F. Forrest for the Van delia. No officers have yet been ordered to the Ohio, 74, and a Surgeon only, who resides at a distance. to the Constitution. Dr. Edwards, Fleet Surgeon, of the West India squadron, has permission to return home, but no suceesuor is yet appointed. The Levant and .Warren, it is understood, will return to the West Indies, and the St. Louts be sent to the Mediterranean. The orders to the several officers mentioned in the Chronicle of the 30th ult. to take passage in the Levant, have been countermanded, some of themt are to proceed immediately, and others are to hold themselves in readiness for future orders.

The systclt oit instruction pursued in this Seminary claimsn aofinity to the called easy methods which prepose to roemtve all labour and drulgery from the acquiaitieo of knowledge. 'The soelcriber cannot pro mise any truly valuable and mental acquisition, whi:h is not the resuI of a slow, patient, pamo-taking pro cess on the part of the pupi hinlself. What he oes pronise, is, by every i eans in his pownar, to stimulate the pupil to this invigorating process.
