She sailed thence on the 1st of December, but has brought no paper later than the 26th ot November. It contains no news of consequence, and nothing transpired after the 26th, worthy ol note. The Celestials were becoming more civilized, and the Emperor, as will be seen in his proclamation, is a man of much benevolence. [From the Canton Press, 20th Nov.] In Canton everything is quiet, nor have we heard thai lli* hostile Biiirit ?i( o- t-l.-l...C ...u:?U we spoke iu our last, has again manifested itsell. In trade we have nothing to add to our last week's report. We have seen letters from Amoy stating that authentic accounts had been received there by the authorities, to the effect that only nine |<ersons still existed of the many that were shipwrecked on the coast of Formosa in the Nerbudda and the Ann, of whom Capt. Denhitm. late master of the Ann, is one, and these were to be liberated on the 29th of the month. The letter we have seen does not state in what manner he that gave the information from Formosa was enabled to obtain information of the fate of the remainder, and it is to be hoped that it was erroneous. There are rumors of their having been executed, but we hope, for humanity's sake, that they will prove unfounded, and our hope is sup|>ortpd by the fact hitherto that the Chinese have not been guilty of such cold-blooded murder,except in a few instances, and then the victims were single individuals. we beg to direct the attention of our readers to Sir Henry Pottinger's Circular, restricting the intercourse of the British with the Chinese, until the settlement of sundry questions and arrangements, to Canton, Hongkong, Amoy, and Chusan. We doubt not that such restriction is called tor hv circumstances, but we should like to see the definite arrangement accelerated. [From the Hongkong Gazette, Nov. 17.] On the 2d day of the 8th Moon (Sept. 8lh, 1842,) the imperial will was received as follows:? 1. Ke Ying has sent up a dispatch concerning the settlement of affairs with the barbarians, the establishment of peace, and the affix of the Imperial Seal 2. The various items of the treaty entered into have also been submitted to the Imperial glance, having been assented to by the said commissioners. 3 In this dispatch was likewise stated the confirmed desire of the English to have trade at Foochow foOj to erect factories, and to dwell there with their families, to all which the Imperial assent was given, on the 26th day of the 7th moon, (Aug. 3d, 1842 ) 4. Our commissioners themselves, requested gravest punishment (for the concessions to the English) but we acquit them of all guilt on the subject. 5. As to the old debts of the Hong Merchants, the Foreigners will not dare to seek the interference of the officers of Government.? 6 The English are to have nothing tosav against the erection of our forts and citadels. To these two last items the English have given their respectful assent.

J MORNING, APRIL 1, 184: Further Particulars of the Storm.?We have received a few more particulars of the storm. l The dtonington Railroad, which sustained some ? damage, will be repaired in a day or two. In the t meanti ne the Boston steamers will go to Newport t and Providence. t One man was drowned at Bridgeport. A section t of the dam of the Pequonnock mills, at the head of t that harbor, was carried away. The wooden sec- j tion of the woollen mill was swept off, with several t buildings ot email value Loss estimated at #20,- i 000. The Berkshire bridge over the Pequonnock 1 was carried away, with a grist mill near it. That ( old bridge at the port was considerably damaged, t A ll the bridges between New Haven and Bridgeport, i on the turnpike, were carried away. 1 So far as heard from onlv three lives have been i lost. It is a wonder the number was not larger. [From Boston Transcript, March 30.] The Western rail road has not austained any damage from the recent storm. Yesterday's train from Albany arrived this morning at half past 11. [From Salem Register, March 30.] ^Several cellars in this city were overflowed, and some buildings undermined by the deluge of water. At times, on Tuesday, the wind appeared to blow with perfect fury. Great apprehensions are entertained of damage from freshets, should tho storm have extended into the intenor. (From Newburyport Herald, March 30.] The ice in the Merrimack, above the Rocks bridge, has not yet started, and no ice at all r ams down the river yes. terday,the water flowing perfectly clear. Yesterday was pleasant and modurate. [From Portland Advertiser, March 29.] The storm, to say the least, was not at all inferior in severity to any that have preceded it, since the cold weather set in;and the past winter has been emphatically a season oi storms. The snow, whioh commenced seme time the previous night, continued to fall till about 9 A. M. when a driving storm set in, and throughout the rtmainder of the day it rained in torrents, accompanied with a heavy gale Irom the Eastward. The heavy rain and melting snow can scarcely fail to produce disastrous treshets on some of our rivers. [From Philadelphia Gazette, March 30.] By a gentleman from Trenton, N. J., we learn that in consequence ot the flood occasioned by the rain arid thaw of Monday and Monday night, the Assanpink creek, running through that plac.r, rose to an extraordinary height, and during Tuesday night carried away the broadside ol the stone power loom factory of Mr. Wain, ami also several hundred feet of the road on the South side of the bridge together with a machine shop and sevt ral other buildings on the opposite side The factory was long known as Well's grist mill, and nurrowly escaped destruction during the late burning of the old hotel at Mill llill The building, as well as the hotel, was standing at the time of the revolutionary war. [From Providence F.xprcss, March 29 ] We learn that the heavy rain of Tuesday occasioned extensive damage in this crty and vicinity. In the city, Westminster, Market, Sabin, Fountain, John and Brook streets suffered most. In Fountain street many families were so much alarmed that they quit their dwellings, while the retreat of others was completely cut oir by the torrents that surrounded them. Largo quantities ot lumber were washed otf the banks of tno Rlackstone river and canal, and a building was carried away from the margin ef the canal basin. We are just informed that the extensive bleaching establishment uf Samuel Dexter, on I the stream divdiing it from Cranston,is very badly injured , ami anatallMd n loss of probably 000. The embank- | merit ot Providence and Stonington Railroad is extensive- , ly excavated between this place and Pawtucket, and the j damages in that distance are estimated at $ 14,000. We learn that Cranberry Pond in Sinithfield broke over, and j caused much injury between that place and Pawtucket ; , and there was great apprehension of an overflow of Scott's , Pond, the waters of which would have flowed in the di- , rection of this city, scattering ruin on every side. The | eltects of the freshet in Pawtuc ket must have been exten- , sively injurious to milldams in that vicinity, and it is re- ( ported that Pawtucket Bridge has been carried away or rendered unsafe for travel. We have heard rumors of the destruction of factories on the streams north of us, but are unable at present to give more particulars of this destructive s'orm, or to estimate its very extensive damages in this city and in the various manufacturing villages in the vicinity. The dam at the Arnoldville Print Works was carried away, and the bridge over the Mosbassuck river at that place. The dam at Pimley's Printworks was partially destroyed. The bridge over the Mineral Spring Turnpike was carried away. [From New Haven Herald, March 29] TKo atrtr-,,, .i,.l <?.l I ? heard, havy fully realized our apprehension*. Nearly all the aveiuid* to the city wer* cut oft by the tremendou* rile of water, ami great damage ha* been done to the road* I and bridge*. The bridge at Weatrille, on the Li.ehfield turnpike, i* entirely *wept awav. Also the West bridge on the Milford road to New York. Some of the trus?e*of the Fair-Haven oridge, over the East river, gave way, and about SO feet of the bridge sank to a* to render it impassable. Barnnville bridge and Neck bridge above it, remain uninjured. An old bridge on Mill river, on the Cforb roa.l above Whitney'* factory, was al*o carried away. Nearly all the bridge* in the adjacent town*, a* far a* beard from, are more or les* injured. The canal in thi* vicinity Buttered but trilling damage, though lerioua apprehension* are entertained of the interior. About one third of the dam at the paper mill in front of West Rock was carried away A maa at North Haven, under the e*. citement of liquor, in the fool-hardy attempt to *wim across the stream, was drowned. The most melancholy event that has come to our knowledge i* the death of Orville ( ollius, postmaster at Straitsville. He left the city in a one-horse wagon in the afternoon, with a man in hi* employ, a Mr. Johnson, in company, for home. In at. tempting to pas* the bridge in^Westville, near the intersection of the Bethany road with the Litchfield turnpike, hi* bone got afl? the track, and the whole were swamped in the flood. Mr. Collin* and the horse wars drowned. His companion, who was driving, succeeded in grasping a post, and was saved. The West bridge, on the Milford road ,we are informed, is completely destroyed, abutment* and all, and the road much damaged. The Fair Haven bridge will be rendered prisable this evening or to-mor- i row. i i Literary Notices. 1 Indian Sketches?Published by Fithian, North J Second street, Philadelphia.

The Attacks ok the "Courier" on Mr. Noriis, Judge Advocate, Repelled.?The malignant issaults made upon the character of Mr. Noma, hy he Courier, might with perfect propriety have been reated with silent contempt by the party so grossly issuiled. 1 he character of the source from which he charges emanated?even had these charges hemselves not contained intrinsic evidence of their nalice and falsity?was quite sufficient to stamp hem with discredit. But Mr. Norris lias thought t due to himself, and to the honorable office which te has filled so honorably and efficiently, to place tvery circumstance connected with his appointment, tnd the manner in which he discharged the duties t imposed, in a proper light before the public. Mr. Vorris lias vindicated his character, and exposed he malignity and misrepresentation of the Courier vith such clearness and explicitness, as to render entark from us unnecessary. In introducing Mr. Morris's statement, we cannot, however, refrain rom expressing our approbation of the dignified tnd temperate tone assumed by this gentleman in lerforminga task in which warmth could find such ently excuse. But Mr. Norris is a gentleman in very sense of the word, and in the present instance, is throughout the whole of the late trial, he has not orgotten that respect which he owes to public opilion, and to himself. There is little encouragenent to hope that the example of decency and genlemanly bearing, which Mr. Norris has set hefora he eyes of his unmanly assailant, will excite any lesire of imitation. The brutality and unreasonible violence of the conductor of the Courier are :ongenital. It is too late in the day to look for imirovement. There is another reason which justifies the course low adopted by Mr. Norris. Many papers besides he Courier hav? circulated the same slanders and nisrepresentations. Indeed, the violence, grossparizanship, and prejudiced conduct of a great porion of the press, in relation to this case, are without jarallel in the annals of newspaper literature. It is herefore very desirable that some antidote should ie administered to all this poison which has been so ndustriously circulated. The Court?the Secretary of the Navy?Mr. J. C. Spencer?the Judge Advocate, have all been included in the charges circulated by the Courier. And all are vindicated in the annexed documents, which we present without further comment. I promised to refute the false charges and imputations made by the Editor of the Courier and Enquirer, against me. I shall avoid the folly of ill-temper, as not suited to public decorum, to my ?elf, and good sense. It is well to [earn from the imprudenciea of those who injure what they wauld assist, and like pepperboxes, with escape holes worn too large, spoil what should only be spiced. The history of this partisan outrage on me, is this :? From the 13thof Feb. to the 13th of.March, I was engaged, whenever an officer came on the stand, in inquiring as to whether a written message was sent by Phillip Spen. :er,just before his death, to his parents. On the !)th of March, Captain McKenzie admitted that the young officer 'did dictate to him what to write," his nephew. Mr. O. d. Perry being then under examination. On the 12th tnd 13th, McKinley and Mid. Thompson were lurther juestioned as to the whole scene of the writing, and the xamination objected to by Mr. Sedgwick as irrelevant On the 14th, Captain McKenzie was reported as too indisposed to attvnd court, ami it was understood that sore throat and chilla were his malady. The Court, therefore adjourned. On going to the Circuit Court to hear the ar giim'-ntof Mr- Duer, Mr. Sedgwick, one of the counsel o Com. McKenzie, desired with me a private interview, it which he showed me the paper subsequently offered hj ('apt. McKenzie as the one dictated by Phillip Spencer.I inspected it, and stated that the rule of law as to tin LlottSullaaal ......1.1 I. ..... I:...I A . I <iriiv<< |'U , I , lv, i ,r. |,,, r 11. Alldlll conversation ensued. Tbii vrtl the first time 1 bad seer tlie paper. Captain McKenzie's illness lasted till the 17th oi March; on that day he came into court, and his counsel presented the paper that had been shown me, supported by the affidavit of t apt. McKenzie. Here at once the client was placed in a false position. It was well known that such verification was illegal and insufficient. 1 contented myself with applying the rule of law on tha point; u hen a prepared paper, bitterly aspersive ct me, was read, concluding with charging me as a vindictive necessary implication, and with'sheltering myself behind a rigid rule ot law." 1 stated there were >ther reasons?they were demanded and when thus goaled to their statement, I avowed that I could not yield to hat affidavit without giving the lie to my convictions >f the evidence of witnesses, of documentary testimony md circumstantial history from the 1st of Dec. to the 17th >f March. I deeply regretted this painful alternative, rut I had to choose between timidity or dishonesty. If his course has hurt any oue's feelings, it is the fault of hose who kept back the paper from the arrival ot the Somers to March 17th, and then resorted to an affidavit o overbear the Judge Advocate's known determination. Here then was mortal offence , I do not pretend, with in. lolent assumption, to say that my opinion is correct. It nay lie wrong, u nuouuieiiiy mere are some timers as honest ns myself, who differ with me?that is for themlelvea; it could never induce me to impugn their motives. Instead, therefore, of establishing in u temperate manner this error of opinion, il it was so daeined,the summary logic was adopted to break the moral influence ol the taw officer's conduct, by declaring him a hireling, and a weak, illy, fool. Aknave and an idiot has no influence, was the reasoning ; I will make the Judge Advocate both, ays Col. Webb, and that will save all necessity of comparison of testimony and argument. Accordingly, on the next day, the 18th of March, the libel was issued in the Courier, chnrging me with being the corrupted tool of J. C. Spencer. This has been followed by others diluting ihe imputation into the suggestion of fatuous weakness ind professional imbecility. and further depicting me as i harmless, inoffensive "boy," subjected to tho "over, weening influence"of J. C. Spencer, Esq. The points, then, between this libeller and myself are: 1st. That my appointment was at the instnnce of J. C. Jpeneer, Esq. ; that since, I have been subject to his advisement or control, directly or indirectly, corruptly or by " overweening influence." 2d The intimation,amounting to a charge, that my card to the public, heretofore published, was suggested in whole or in pait by Charles O'Connor, Esq. 3d. That the proceedings wi re delayed by me to give jurisdiction or chance of interference to the civil authorities. 4th Inadequacy, by deficient intellect, acquirements and years, for the duties of Judge Advocate. The first three charges will be left, with no other answer than the accompanying testimony. Asto the lourth, it may not be improper to premise the law as applicable to the post of Judge Advocate. When Ihe charges are preferred by the (loverriment, not on the information of a prosecuting witness, the Judge Advocate is then the prosecutor, as the District Attorney is in civil judicatures This is the sstatdished distinction, as will be seen by reference to Kennedy on Courts Martial, the best writer on military law. On page 247, he says, " If the Judge Advocate be prosecutor, the path before him is plain and easy" ; agnin on page 2A0, "It may, however, be said, that although it should not be expected that the Judge Advocate, when prosecutor, should assist the prisoner in his defence; still, in all cases where the prosecution is conducted by a private pros cutor, the Judge Advocate ought then to furnish that assistance." If it is intended to deny that this cbsc has not been con. ducted as a prosecutor should act in a civil court, honestly and impartially, I answer, not only is the assertion false, but when a like one was made by Mr. Sedgwick in Court, the Court instructed me to tell him publicly that his aspersions met their exception. My tmyhood has lasted overthirty years; I was prepared lor my profession by every opportunity of ednca'ion, collegiate and professional. 1 venture to affirm that not one af the counsel of the accused or of the court hive author, ised the slightest impugnment of my professional adequacy ; I have had much correspondence with the Depart ment, and have, to the tait, enjoyed its expressed unqualified confidence. In all the proceedings of seven weeks, the Court have overruled me 'nut on three interrogations that were ob oot? <! to; and the propoval to conduct the examination of :he otticera of the Somera not called by the accuacd, in the nature of a croai-exnminatioii, I anil claim to be right, ami entered proteata iu each cu>e. There ia not on the record a "ingle proteat from the ac iiael, in the varioua inatancea in which I have been vu?ained by the Court. The witneaaea for five weeka were called by the ac:uaed, twenty-aeven in number; twelve were called by he proaerution, four cf w hom were only aaked in to heir knowledge of the mutiny, and of a propoaal or alk ol Spencer; an affair ol tw o houra duration aa to theae our. The proaecution w aa called on to do justice to lArce ndividuala, whoae livea were charged to have been illegally taken. With thia preliminary "tatement, I turn the public to he evidence, which will prove additionally the nnworhineaaol credit of Jamea Wataon Webb. WILLIAM H. NORRIS, Indcr.. a.l^uin Vm H.

Dtpo nent solemnly avers that he haa endeavored to discharge the duties of his otfire fairly, honeatly and firmly, and hav;ng had no trivial experience in prosecuting, feels authorial d to say that it has been done after the manner ol an upright law officer in a civil judicature.

Before receiving your* of the 19th I had'seen, and with deep regret, the editorial article in the Courier mnrl Knvui'r?rot Suturday laat, to which you have callod my attention. If Col. Webb knew you aa well aa I have the pleaaure to know you, he uould not, I am ?urr, hare suffered him. aell for a moment to suspect even, much leva belt* je that you were capable ot iiifluencea auch aa he allege have governed, and are governing yourcourae in the conduct of ''ommander Mckenzie's caae. Here, the place of j our nativity, where almoat your entire life hssbetn spent, and your private and profe?aional character are alike fully known, .10 gentleman would dream ot impeaching jour motive*, whatever opinion he might entertain of the legal propositions which you have irom time to time in the management ol the trial, endeavored to maintain. In thia, aa in other caaea, different view* are almost always entertained by the purest and most enlightened men, profeaaional as well as othen, but from a long and intimate acquaintance with you as a friend and a professional brother, I take much pleasure in slating (greatly lamenting, however, the occasion which renders it necessary,) that I know no man living more entirely incapable of an act of dishonor, private or professional, than yourself. The editor alluded to, convinced as he doubtless is, with thousands of others, of the innocence ot Commander Vc Ken/.ie of the charges which you are officially, as it is your duty, prosecuting against h/m; and on the strength of that conviction deeming it impossible honestly to entertain a different opinion, ami suffering trom that cause his feelings to overrule his judgment, lias imbibed impressions in regard to yourself, which if he hud been acquaint.. h.. would n. ver have in.In lee,I N Will jvmr _?, and winch, if I know him, hr will when he n made ac. iiuainted with it, mo?t willingly and promptly retract. Here in Maryland, where you are known, you need no vindication ol either private or proletaional name, and, I im certain, that when the New York public see the eati mate la which you are hi Id at home, the laat thing they will ever think ol imputing to you, ia a forgetfuliiea* of private or professional honor.
