By (ting the Sun, it will bo seen that whole columns it of old c lreitisements, stuck in to fill up space? other columns contain silly love stories, instead ot iportant news of the day, which they seldom publish b day after. se ore the facts ?but we do not blame Mr. Beach fo <eo; _ .

Financial Affairs?Business ? Legislature? Illinoit ?Steamboat Accidents?Fashion and Bulls?Advice. Mr. Bennett:? I observe you have complied with my request. 1 now devolves upon me to fulfil my promise,?I say to you in as briel a manner as the girls used to say to you as they were tripping to their work, "Mr. Bennett, give me the 'Herald.'" I say here is my lucubrations; publish them if you deem them worthy your notice. Were it not too late to interest or benefit any one of your readers, I could name to you how our Missouri Bank gave credit and caused the bills of the Mineral Point Bank to be received on deposit, and in payment for notes due it, and placed on a par with its own issues?how the Cairo Bank got a circulation through the Mntual Insurance Company office?the Miners' Bank through the Gas Light Insurance Company?'.he Bills of the banks in Illinois kept at par by being received 011 deposit aud in payment of debts due the Perpetual Insurunce Company and the Missouri Bank, and by them loaned out very liberally to the directors and their particular friends, and of the demise of the Mineral Point Bank, Cairo Bank, Miners' Bank, the banks in Illinois and their godfathers, tin- Mutual Insurance Company, Gas Light Company, Perpetual, and of the alarming illness of the Missouri Bank, which had shown symptoms of consumption tor some time past, and many of our good citizens feared the hasty consumption had overtaken it, but by calling to its aid the assistance of skillul and experienced men, it wae restored to its wonted good health, the disease having been erased, in a manner, from its system, and its restoration to good health. 1 could name to you the particulars attending each movement; but as they are numbered among the things that were, I feel confident the reviewing of them would not interest your readers. The poet says, "after life's fitful fever man sleeps well," so it has been in the above named inanimate bodies. Business, for the past month, has been extremely dull; all the rivers above our city are, and have been closed for the past four weeks. The Mississippi river never was known to have been aslow as it has been the past fall, but 3i feet water on some of the bars below our city. The extreme low water has played the duece with our steamboats. The channel of the river is full of snags and sawyers?when the water becomes so low as to compel boats to keep in the channel, then the boat owners weep for the loss of their boats. The following boats were sunk the last week:?The "Brazil," "Rock Island," "Bowling Green," " Loyal Hanna," and the iron steamer "Valley Forge." The latter was supposed to be snag proof, and bid defiance to sawyers, but the grave yard?as our boatmen term a place where lie some dozen boats?proved too much for it, and she was compelled to yield. The Valley Forge lies in the channel; boats cannot pass that place until some of them are removed, as trie snngs are so thick, it is with some difficulty a i/awl run pass through in safety. Many ask "will fcongrrss do any thing for the improvement of the Western Rivers 1" We fear they will be too much engaged in Presidential aflairs to attend to minor matters, such as the preservation of life and property. Can we not call upon you to lend a helping hand I reflect for a moment how manysuffer by the lossof one of our floating palaces, the bratsmen. Many of them have their little all invested, the accumulation of years of industry nnd perseverance ; the farmers have their produce, stock, !ec.f on board, searching a market; the merchant, his merchandise, the mechanic, his implements of trade, and passengers are crowded on the bark?and they wend their way to distant ports, with happy hearts and cheerful countenances- As they progress down the stream, they coine in contact with that hideous monster, and frequently all are consigned to a watery grave. Imagine the feelings of that tnan as he sits on the bank of the river, beholding the waves rolling over that bark containing his all, which, but a lew moments before, was ploughing the water like a thing of life. What pen can describe the anguish of that mother when news is brought to her, that her only son and su|>porter in her old age, had met with a watery grave I I leave the subject, honing you may feel sufficient interest in the welfare of the citizens of the West to lend a helping hand Our Legislature has been in session about three weeks?they have been busily engaged, and have accomplished the following:?He-elected Dr. Linn to the U. S Senate;elected Mr. F. Kennettpresident of the Hank of Missouri; elected officers to the different branches; abolished lotteries nnd the selling ot lottery tickets within this State. The financial men from the upper counties are trying to effect a trade with the delegation from this county; they wish the Missouri Hank, stone building and all, removed to Jeflerson city, and give in exchange the Penitentiary?about an even exchange, if the movers are thrown into the latter to superintend to the financial department. Now, Mr. Bennett, if you want to break your suspenders and burst your buttons off laughing, just corne and take a peep at our legislature. From reading their speeches I have come to the conclusion it is a rare collection of wisdom and intellect. What will be the result of their deliberation and argumentation would require a murh better Yankee than I am to guess. One thing is certain, if the financial bill should become a law, the punishment inflicted, which is the I^tate prison, lor a violation of it, will be but a very short time, if Miller prophecies conectly. The Illinois Legislature commenced itH session two weeks ago. Some of the members have relieved themselves of considerable wind they brought with th^tn to the sect of government, against the^tate and Hank of Illinois. Nothing has been done for the b?nefit of the citizens of that State, fetters from Si'ringfield.receivd to-day, say .1 udge? Douglass and Breese were the candidates for U. S. Benator to fill the vacancy. Last week the "Liberty Fire Company" gave a ball at the Planters' House, which was well attended. All classes were there, judges, lawyers, doctors, merchants, manufacturers, married ladies, engaged ladies, would-like-to-be engaged ladies, and misses; all enjoyed themselves well. A good supi>er was riven to the company by the worthy landlord, Mr. Stickney, and when they had their fill of dancing, each wended their way to their respective homes The company realised about 8900. which goes to wards paying; for the engine house recently erected. On Wednesday evening last one 01 the series of arties was given at the same place. This was of a fifferent complexion; no one was admitted but thoee of noble birth. These parties nre got up on reasonible terms, tickets $2, so as to allow person* amusenent.and the expense trifling. So far. very good. In he arrangement with the landlord be waste give hem a cold suigier,but nothing w?s said about the adies' dresses?to nave seen 'bent one would have 'opposed the year 1838 had come again. The Miaaea } WPre the belles of the evening; their handtome persons, frank and ('repossessing countenances, resembling their worthy father) easy gait, and ihove all their elegant manners, which qualities ar est the attention of strangers, caused me t? gaze at hem and to form a favorable opinion. In another ,nrt of the room could be seen Miss Pilgarlick, poseasing a fine person, and I am told of superior inrllect, but her manners, which every lady ought to ulu vate, produced surprise by her declining to .lance tfule in the cotillon, to the annoyanceol the others in W sett,sremed to say, 'ma doo't want me to dance; it till snoil my beautiful dress ; she wants me to wear at the next partv.' She had many admirers, bat tli-y re some rather green youths, who think a woman sail perfection and holiness It offends me to the very r>nl to behold those silly, foolish persons, and it is nly with a desire to check those old and heartless oqaettea in their career, attd which will serve as a mile to tUose artless and innocent girls from their cs'ilential example, that I now name it. For the following code of morals, accept my 1 lLD. J Price Two Centa. thanks. "Let the young men ol the present day, just entering upon business, take care how they make a start in life. II they imitate the conduct, the meanness and the ways of those who, by their own folly, indiscretion and extravagance, swell the lists of bankruptcy, and call honesty a species of "aristocracy"?they never will succeed. This is the most propitious time in the world tobegin business, but It must be heffiin OB the riuht iirineml*?iU_ proper temper?the highest industry?the coolest sagacity?and above all, with an inflexible adherence to truth, integrity, economy and cash down, whether it is "democracy or aristocracy.'" That young men may have another opportunity of imtub mg your good advice to them, I have quoted the above paragraph from the "Herald" of the 6th inst. | Roderick. I Charleston. [Corr'tpomJeilce of the Henlcl.] ! Charleston, S. C., Dec. 25, 1842. James Gordon Bennett, Esq :? ? i >ear Sir : ? I Our city is very quiet in all respects, at this time, ' inconsequence of the holidays. Dr. Lardner has been lecturing to small houses the last week, chiefly ladies, at 25 cents the lecture. He has the Hibernian Hall, at forty or fifty dollars per night, and will t scarce make excuses. The theatre is doing but little better. Mr. Forbes has won laurels, though, and done much to redeem the managerial character in this city, which has tor some time been below par. He has cut down the prices?driven out the yellow horde who formerly were admitted behind the scenes tor the entertainment of certain parties? has introduced a thorough reform in the morals and management of the stage. This will do much for him; and the greatest laborand exertions evident to deserve success. The manager is a host in himself ?and has played Claude Mellnotte, Duke Aran/ the Honey Moon, and Hamlet, with great success in his impersonations Mons. Paul, J. R. Scott, the Seguins, Arc. Arc., are to appear in regular sue ce^ion. So much for our amusements. Great anxiety exists in regard to the news by the Britannia. Her news is daily expected ; and should it prove favorable, a vast amount of cotton will move directly. Our wharves probably never presented such an appearance as at this moment. It is almost impossible to make your way along, from the mountains of cotton piled up. block ing the way. Freights must improve, unless there should be a great accession to the number of vessels now in port. Rates are slowly advancing, from the scarcity of vessels, and the immense amount to go forward. Brigs George and Cumberland, arrived liom New York, tins morning. In the offing, ships Lucas and OceanuH. from Boston. As we have no paper published till Tuesday, you may get this ship newstrom no other source. I shall endeavor to give you whatever comes up in this city, in the shape of news, with something of regularity. The Herald appears to be gaining popularity every where. It certainly is here, and it I would be strong evidence of a want of intelligence if it were not popular. Yours, Ate. i .Jamaica. [Corrnponileuceof llie Herald.] Jamaica, Dec. 28th, 1842. Dear Sir As you generally wish to be acquainted with all the transactione that are taking place in your vicinity, 1 have taken the liberty to Bend you a short description of the annual ball given by the Brooklyn Horse GuardB, at Jno. B. Snedecors, on the night of the 27th inst. The beauty assembled on this occasion speaks high for the correct taste ol that corps. The display of ietnale loveliness was exceedingly rich. Prominent we noticed Miss J , from Flatbush, dressed in white satin, whose bewitching eyes and dimpled cheeks near drove us to distraction. The Misses S chained all by their quiet dignity and beauty; the youngest is destined to break more hearts than she will be able to mend, "Uncle John" has reason to be proud ol them. We also , saw Mrs. Lr and her unmarried sister, who has rather the advantage?her mild sweet eye and beautiful mouth drew many an admiring glance; she is a very interesting girl?we saw that Hiram had the same opinion. Bnt the bdlt ol the eveniug was Mrs. C , from Brooklyn, dressed in fawn-colored figured silk ; a more beautiful woman isfseldom seen,and as her dark eyes flashed around, many a sigh was breathed by two or three young bachelors to think she was fast in Hymen's bonds. We noticed a banner worked and presented to the troop by Miss W , of Flatbush, who is a very pretty girl. Capt E. presented a very soldier-Jike appearance, to which, his having a Roman nose, ana being a little oblivous about supper time, added no little. Mr. M , the manager, managed everything well ? though those barn-yarc! boots would not pass for Hessian, if the bottoms of the pants were inside. Mr t*. hardware merchant, from your city, seemed to enioy it highly, and the way he used that fancy step on all occasions wbb not bad?won't yon please to learn one more. . Thesupi>er was served in John U.'s best style,and does him much credit. We having no lady with us, was obliged to withdraw to the bachelor's table in an adjoining room, where we found our friend L., i from Fori H., putting the table into a roar, and then keeping them there, aided and abetted by his friend A , from your city. Supper being finished , dancing commenced. < 1. did that fancy step better than ever; and aftertaking one more glance at the beauty before us, we departed for our domicil. leaving the happv party, who did not go home till mornimr. W,8U To the EDrroR of the Herald :? "A subscriber," writing in your paper of this morning, mmpfninsof the Directors of the Mercantile Association, for having in (wo instances substituted new lecturers for those promised in their programme. Agreeing with him fully in the opinion that this is a grievance, I only reply for the pur|?ose of fixing the blame in the right quarter. The lecturers who have not kept faith with the Assoca| "on, are Mr. Dana, Senior, of Boston, and Charles O'Conor, of this city. The former was prevented by serious illness, from visiting the city, to fulfil his en|;agement, and is, of course, excusable. But the alter,whose engagement to lecture was positive and unqualified, refused to perform that service when the time came, although he could offer no valid excuse. He repudiated his contract with as little remorse as (yovernor McNutt cancelled the bonds of Mississippi. How he can reconcile such conduct with his ideas of honor and integrity, I cannot conceive. Your correspondent should, however, transfer his censure from the Directors of the Association te Mr. O'Conor, on whose head it should rightfully fall. The only lault with which they are chargeable, is that of having announced Mr. O'Conor as one of their lecturers, on the mistaken presumption that his word could be relied on. Yours, very respectfully, . <S As Ofpickr of the Association. Saturday, Dec. 81, 1842.
