In the mean time, let us all be glad and rejoice, that the sun yet shines and the seasons return. The following ar? further particulars from the Phila! delphia papers:? (From (lie Pniladelrh a Knqnirer.] A Hcrroaei) Abscoisdixo Shii*1 a?.?Much excitement wa? product J in the city yesterday, bv the diaappearance of Jacob Shipman, an indiriduil who has been engaged lor several years as a messenger between the Banks and Brokers of New York and Philadelphia. He has been in the habit of carrying packages of money, and ou some occasions has hail an aggregate amountashigh as $'.'00,000 entrusted to him. On one occasion, not long since, snuff was thrown into his eyes and an attempt was made to rob him,and on another,villains secreted themselves in his dwelling to nwait his return,with the same had object. It appears that on the afternoon of Wednesday last, Shipman, or as he was familiarly called, " Jake," called at the various brokers and banks to obtain their packages, and started in the pilot line at 6 P. M. No alarm was felt with regard to him until yesterday morning. then his unaccountable absence led to the belief that he had been waylaid, and perhaps robbed aad murdered. It was subsequently ascertained that ho proceeded on "Wednesday as far as Trenton ; that he there hired ahorse and gig and returned to this city?that the next morning he whs seen at the cars on Broad street?that he there paid $14 for his passage to Pittsburg, and also gave $5 toan in dividual who know him, to return with the horaeand gig to Trenton. His Pittsburg ticket was obtained in th<name of Mr. Johnson. He appeared to be in good spirits, was gay and jovial as usual, and drank wine with the person whom he accosted. We have reports alBo, that he was quite lively and cheerful at Trenton on Wednesday night. It is supposed that Shipman had a large sum of money with him at the time?perhaps $76,000. It is probable that the amount placed in his hands by the Philadelphia broders.did not reach $10,000, and this sum divided among quite a number. He had a check, however, given him hv one Philadelphia house on a New York Bank, for $20,000, the n-oney for which he of course did not obtain. The larger amount of the funds with him, belongs to New York Bank- and brokers, as it is known that he biought on a considerable amount of foreign gold from that city, to be placed in the Philadelphia Mint for recoinage. We have traced $16,000 of this money. $10,000 in French gold he exchanged at the Philadelphia Bank for notes of that Institution, and a broker deposited $6000 more in the Farmers'and Mechanics' Bank, for which ho obtained a check It is possible that other sums given him in New York have not yet been ascertained. He has a wife and three or four children residing in Union street, below Third, and before he left on Thursday, he wpnt home aud obtained a new suit of clothes. He has heretofore been a kind husband and father, and those who have trusted him for yeats, find it very difficult to believe that lie is the base scoundrel that circumstances would seem to infer. His movements throughout warrant the worst suspicions. We have a rumor that gambling and the purchase of lottery tickets have been attributed to him of late. Mors or thf. Mtsnxa Mf.ssengfr.?We have heard a few more particulars in relation to Shipman, whose mysterious disappearance was the town talk in the monetary circles yesterday. He was among those who attended the fire at the city stores on Wednesday night, visited a tavern in the neighborhood, and drank with several friends. He did not stay with his family that night, which consists of a wife an 1 four daughters, tho latter unite voune. Oc his wav towards Trenton, the conduc tor noticed him a* far as Bordentswn, but has no recollection of seeing him beyond that point. He stood on the p'atform outside the cars, and appeared uneasy. He was ome I with one ofColt's pistols, as well as a knife, as was his custom when in charge of money. He took breakfast at riark's Tavern, Broad street, on Thursday morning. He placed the horse and gig in charge of a man namel Michael Herring. Persons who observed him at the fire say that he seemed somewhat excited, but was apparently in excellent spirits. The most unbounded confidence was placed in him. A friend informs us that he has known him to have charge of $100,000 in gold at one time. Ho went in the slow line to Pittsburg on Thursday morning, when he cousd have gone in the fast lin" on Wednesday night. A gentleman thinks he recognized him as high up as Lancaster. foronrr's Invrstlgatlon on the Death of Sarah .lane Drvlnr. The investigation before the Coroner was continued yesterday afternoon at the Alms House building. Mrs. Kktchi m, mother of Henry Ketchum,was recalled j ?and stated that she had received a letter from the brother of the deceased, enquiring where she was, but did not answer it, because she did not know where she was, and also that one of her^sons was dead in the house at the time. J"?rrH STBixn, the uncle of deceased, who resides at Peekskill, was called?He stated that he supposed the fa. ther of deceased was in prison at Black well's 1st a ad; she learned the milliner's trade at Peekskill, and then returned to 'hi-city with the intsntion of going to work for Miss Wright, in Brooklyn ; instead ol that, she went to live with Mrs. Ketchum,a letter was sent to Mrs. Devine, the grandmother of the deceased, at Peekskill; it was anony mous; I went to New York to ascertain the cause o( death of deceased, atter we had received the letter from Mrs. Brown; on returning I consulted with the fiiends of deceased, and we came to the conclusion that if there had been any criminality on the part of any one, we could not prove it; and that it would make a great noiae if investigated, and decided not to proceed in the matter. EnOc h E Ciar, on' of the Reporters of the Herald, was calli-d hy the Jury?He stated that the anonymous letter here presented was received at th? Herald office hy James Gordon Bennett, a day or two after it had been written; the similarity of the hand writing in it, compared with the one sent to the grandmother of deceased np|>ears to indicate that they were written by the same person ; the facts in the anonymous communication were made public in the Herald the day after it had been received; a day or t.vo previous to this, Mr. Milliken, the Deputy Coroner, and mysell, visited the bouse of Mrs. Cannon, where the deceased died, in order to ascertain the particulars of her death. Thomss Brow*, broth-r-in-law of Mr. Beal, the sexton, was called, but knew nothiDg about the matter. JohsJ. Whits, another brother-in-law of Mr. Beal, was called?He took the liody from the house in the hearse.

Yet this verdict was not, on the whole, so opposed to law, as the tumultuous joy of Philadelphia was hostile to propriety, taste, and sound judgement. It is an absolute fact that a public meeting has passed resolutions, complimenting New Jeysey for that vrrdict, and permitting her to enter the Union hereafter. Here are a few astounding extracts from the Philadelphia papers:? [From the Philadelphia Time*.] QtJ" At a meeting of the citizens of Southwark, yesterday, 1 it was generously resolved, that in consideration ot the handsome conduct of the Woodbury Jury in the Mercer case, the Slate of Nev> Jersey be taken into Ike Federal Union I!! Agreed new ran. Thr Mrac*n Task?This Last Act is the Exciting DraMA? Toi i HINU AND IaTKBKSTINO PARTICULARS.? The trial of Singleton Mercer lor the murder of Heberton ,the dishonorer of his sister, is one of those rare and prominent events in the history of humanity, which serve as landmarks for an age, and thus become the object ol remark and discussion for a generation. With all the de. tails ol the trial, the evidence, the legal pleadings.he. our readers are familiar; they have also been enabled to lorm some ..tea ol the universal sympathy entertained for the prisoner?the instinctive mid chivalric feeling on the rmrt of the public, for the salt-ty of one who had heroicaly risked all in defence ol the defenceless?but tt was thfi scene alone presented in Court whan the prisoner was ac quitted, that can furnish anything like au adequate idea of the overwhelming niitur.-of that sympathy. At half-past five o'clock on Thursday afternoon, the Court house boll was rung to assemble thi> jury in the Court Boom The jury entered while the boll wa? ringing, and it is difficult to imagine the crowd, that with anxious luces, stood straining their eyes, as it to catch from the countenance of each juror an idea of the verdict. From the very nature of the case, and the public excitement existing upon the subject, an outbreak of feeling was expected. The Judge, and the Attorneys upon both sides, desired that the audience would respect the dignity ot the Court, whatever might be the result. Still, when the verdict ol "not guilty!" was rendered, in spite of all that could be said or dona, in spite of all the better feelings of those present, one general shout of joy burst through the building, and a rush was made by the spectators 111 every quarter of the room towards the prisoner, in order to congratulate him on his; recovered freedom. While this was going on, the uproar was tremendous. The Court pleaded in vain lor silence. The attorniea, even of the prisoner, cried "sham"! shame'." but without effect. The popular heart was beating, end would not be con. trolled. Nature was speaking in her own thunder-tones of feeling, anil the cold, conventional rules ol propriety were cast scornfully aside in the vast heaving impulse of that exciting moment. Another touching scene was, when young Mercer, liberated from prison, and followed by the cheers of the rejoicing multitude, reached the house in Woodbury, where his father, mother, and sisters, stood waiting for him. He had perilled his life in defence of their honor and good name, and they felt how much he deserved of them for his bravery. First his mother caught him in her arms, and wept over him, as one just snatched from an ignominious death, while she murmured?for excess of joy would only let her murmur?her praise for his deliverance. Then his young sister?the betrayed?the lost?the ruined one?with a shriek of delight, fell at his knees, and after sobbing as if her heart would break with its overbtirthened load of gratitude, implored him to forgive her. "Forgive! lorgive me, my dear brother?forgive your erring, but never wrong-hearted sister, who, led astray by the false arts of a villainous dissembler, disgraced her dear lather and mother,and made wretched the fond hearts of all who loved her ! Forgive the wretched, the unthinking creature, who could so wickedly put the life of her noble brother in jeopardy, and who is now too poor to repay nim in anything but tears for avenging her wrongs and punishing the wrong-doer." He raised up his sis er, fell on her neck, kissed her forehead, and told her that he " forgave her from the bottom of his heart," and trusted that the world would treat her with a charity equal jto his own. His counsel were present, and a number ol other persons. All were affected to tears, and overcome by their emotions, most ot them I felt constrained to leave the room.

He thanked them for the courteiy they had extended to him ; said that he entertained no hanm feelings towards them, and that they had dsne but their duty. In tke course ol the evening, he received some capital advice from his counsel. Mr. Vroom gave him some ex. ceedingly salutary lessons lor his future guidance ; while on every side his own conduct was depicted as marked with nothing but the evidences ol the nicest propriety. Vesterday morning it was known he would return to this city. Anticipating a crowd, his friends thought it advisable to bring him up privately, and hence he accompanied the ladies ol the family in a private carriage to Oloucestei Point, and thus reached by the way of the Point House, the residence of his father in Queen street. In the meantime the crowd gathered altoiit Walnut street wharf at which the Camden Ferry l>oat arrives. About 11 o'clock, the " John Fitch"?the very boat on which the dreadful tragedy occurred?came to the wharf, having on hoard, not Singleton Mercer,hut his father, and his five counsel, Measrs. Browne, Vroom, Wall, Matlock and Sloan. The balcony in front of Bloodgood's Hotel was filled with ladies, and amid the multitu Is Below a great number of the aofter sex could also he perceived. As the boat touched the shore, one terrific huzzi! rent the air, and the gentlemen threw their hats tip, and the ladies waived their white handkerchiefs in the wind. It seemed like some gala-day. Mr. Mercer, Sr., ami the legal gentlemen walked through the crowd? Messrs. Vroom and Browne, arm in arm, with heads hare, going in advance. As they passed, the most profound silence reigned. Then another ! and another ! and another ! shout burst from the throatr of the spectators?another toss of the hats?another wave of the white handkerchiefs? end the crowd quietly followed in the rear, making a grand procession, until the ohjects of attention reached the U. S. Hotel, where with a final huzza ! the mass .lowly, and one by one, withdrew. We learn that aingleton Mercer contemplates leaving the city for North Carolina for a few months, where he proposes to remain, until the present extraordinary excitement is over. [From the Chronicle.] We do not approve of such marked demonstrations of feeling at an occurrence like that in which young Merci-r was pngaged None rvioice more in his acquittal than we do, yet we believe that such expressions ol approbation are altogether improper, and out of place. The family of Mr. Mercer hflve evinced wisdom in refusing partu-ipanr r in any public exultation at his acquittal, and it is to tie hope' that the young man himself will maintain a circumspection of deportment in keeping with the natural character which hia learned and ablecounael "n u|t lur uini un iDc inui. City Intelligence. Brutal Outrank ?John Scobell, known as the former rlerk of De Merritt, of financiering memory, was lodged in the city prison yesterday afternoon by officer McGrath, on a charge of inhumanely beating, on Thursday last, a woman named Mary, I who has been living with him as his wife. She was found by the officer in a bed in the room with Scobel, at the second house from the corner of Canal street, in Washington, and presented a most distressing appearance Her body was literally covered with black and blue spots, her eyes blacked, and nearly closed, her upper lip cut open, and otherwise ho bruised and mangled tlia' she could hard y be distinguished from a colored person. She was conveyed to the Ilo-jiital, and upon Iming examined by l)rs. W.tlah and Jones, was pronounced to be in a dying situ .lion. The Coroner was unable to hold an ante mortem examination last evening, owing to the state of the woman's health, but will probably t?eable to obtain her evidence to-day. The worn mi ismricnte, and there is every reason to believe from her present situation that she cannot survive Scoble was before the Special Sessions last week, on a charge of assault and battery on this woman, but through tier solicitations, he was discharged on promise of good behavior. A young man, about 18 years old, named Samuel Scott, and a native of Greenwich, Conn , fell overboard from the sloop Theodore, Capt. Merritt, opposite Corlear's Hook, and was drowned.

The Tariff of this country will be altered, and a higher rate of duties laid on almost every thing. Mr. Ellis, British Minister Plenipotentiary Extraordinary, has not succeeded in ne gociating a new treaty with this Government. The tardiness of the Brazilians don't please him, and he is preparing to leave this for England, and it is surmised that, on his arrival, "John Bull" will send out hisacconnt lor a settlement^ the amount due to Great Britain, and her subjects enormous; |>erhaps more than seven tenths of the business of this place is done with British capital. The United State*, during the last year, supplied this market with 14(1,448 bbls Hour, besides other articles, such as domestics, wine, brandy, lutnber, candles, iron, salt, &c ; and 180 ves els belongiug to the U S.

The whole number of bags shipped was 1,189.045, besides a considerable quantity ol sugar, hides, &c., which is mostly paid for, with the proceeds, arising out of foreign product. The revenue of this country must be immense, and still the government finances are said to be in a state of alarming embarrassment. The Ministers have all resigned, and those who have succeeded them are quarreling, and there is nothing like harmony or union to be found in this country, although the people are led to believe the espousal of the young Emperor, and that of Priuee de Joinville to the Emperor's sister, will act as a panacea on the affairs of the nation, and lull both ministers and people into halcyon repose. Brazil is really a fine country; but what is good land without good laws'? or what are good laws when badly administered 1 The ex-ministers are, no doubt, men of talents and ability, but they have acted extremely wrong in displacing good officers, and doubly so by filling the vacancy with bad ones.

This is an honest man, and the revenue will suffer a great loss by his being out of office : the word bribery was never found in his vocabulary; he is a gentlemen of splendid talents, and was the best and most efficient Guarda Morthat ever filled that office?the regulations of the port were his test book, but he made use of no suoterfuges in carrying them into effect; and, although a little of the Scotchman,haughty, he was esteemed and respected by all the merchants. The Ex-Ministers made a gieat error in promoting a decendantof Africa, by the name of Joaquim Pereira Vianna de L'ma. Now read what follows and agree with me. The " Lexington" belonging to New York, put into this port on her way to Montevideo, in a very leaky condition ; three government boats went on board, and the Captain was told that he might go on shore, and did so, (taking two passengers with him, who had given their passports to the boarding officer, who in return gave them permits to land) but he had not been long with his consignees (Pearson, Brown & Co ) before an officer went there, and informed Mr. B. that the Captain of the Lexington had come on shore without being visited by the custom house boat, and that the vessel would be liable to pay a heavy fine unless Mr. Brown went immediately to the Guarda Mor and arranged the matter Mr. B. lost no time in calling,with the captain, on his royal highness, who looking through a dark surface, significantly ordered the captain to go on board of his vessel again, which he instantly did, and late in the afternoon the Guarda Morhimseif went on board to visit the Lexington and see what arrangement codM be made with her captain, who, by the by, was suf- I lering from a severe wound on his head, caused by the falling of a block from aloft, and should have been on shore under the care of a surgeon or physician; but regardless of this, the Guarda Mor urged the fine, which he said the vessel had incurred by the captain going on shore, declaring the vessel should not be cleared until the fine was paid?neither should the captain go on shore. The captain assured the Guarda Mor that he had liberty from one of the boarding officers to go onshore?that he was a stranger to the regulations of the port?that his vrst*ri was ma smKiuK cnnamon?nis crew airno?t exhausted, and himself laboring under a severe injury which might be fatal?but this argued nothing. The next day the Captain being very ill, and deem, ing it proper his consignees, as well as the American Consul, should be apprised of his situation, sent letters on board the guard ship, with a note to the officer in command, by his mate, (Mr. Heyt) but the officer of the guard ship refused to receive either, and informed the mate that the "Lexington" could not be allowed any communication with the shore, or her boat go within gun shot of any vessel for three days; this was on Sunday, and the Captain was confined on board of his vessel until Tuesday following, when the inspector liberated him, ana allowed him to enter his vessel at the Custom House, and informed him that he had incurred a fine of 100||0U0 |>er day,in consequence of his vessel not being entered at the Custom House twenty-four hours after having been visited; Hnd that he had also incurred a fine of ]()0||00<) for having gone on shore before he was regularly visited, and also 100||000 for having taken pai-scngers on shore,without calling on board the guard ship, and a so 100||000 for having allowed a shore boat (the one the Captain took to goon board in, when ordered to do so by the Guards Mor) to go alongside of his vessel. The money for these ridiculous fines was paid into the Custom House, against all of which the Captain protested, and sent his memorial to the Emperor, the result of which is not known. It is due to the Collector to say (~'aturnino de Sonzu e Oliveira,) that he has recently resumed his office, and was not here when the shameful affair ol the Guarda Mor took place. 1 think it will puzzle them to find a pretext tor re taming the money so unjustly taken from an unoffending Captain? 1st, Because the Captain went on shore in ignorance of the regulations 01 the port, which he had never entered before, and understanding he had leave granted him to do so 2d. Because it was the first duty of the Guarda Mor and interpreter, on boarding the Lexington, to have furnished the Captain wth a copy of the regulations of the port, but which he has not until this hour received. 3 Because it is the duty of the Guarda Mor, as a public officer, to treat with urbanity and civility the officers of vessels he visits. 4 Because the Lexington could not be entered in the Cdstom House so long as ihe Captain was kept a prisoner on board of his own vessel by order of the Guarda Mor. 5 Because it is the custom of all civilized nations to extend to foreigners speaking a different language, and unacquainted with ihe customs of their sea ports, every facility in theirpower, and not to interpret the laws when infringed through ignorance, as if they had been infringed contemptuously and wilfully. Hiave dwelt on the case of the Lexington, believing it to be a subject worthy *f particular notice, and which might very well claim the attention of government Our trade with the Brazilians is no doubt desireable, but at the same time it is reciprocal: they want our Hour as much as we want their coffee, and if it were not so, they should not be allowed to commit such outrageous acts on our citizens, or stretch the cords of authority bejor.d the boundary of civilization. I believe that tlie Brazilian government ure unacquainted with the unlawful acts done by their officers, hut foreigners ought not to sutler by their negligence; it is their business to place proper men in office; if they did that, there would be no reason to complain ol desti union, or ute wani oi revenue?oui mat 10 inrir own business I have written in haute, a plain, matter of fact narrative, without exaggeration or embellishment, and I believe the mercantile community here would be glad to see it published in the Herald.

There has been no question taken upon it as yet, and my conviction is that it will be defeated?asit should be. There is a rivalry existing between this city and Troy, which keeps the citizens of both places on the qui vivt. Upon enquiry, 1 learn that the Trojans have been in a constant state of exultation ever since their memorable victory on the Bridge question, some two years since. They seldom fail of embracing every opportunity of benefitting themselves at the expense of the unconscious Albanians. They have recently started a project of this nature. Some six or eight years since, the Troians foresaw, or imagined that the village of West Trov, from its location on the canal, ana having the advantage of a side cut into the river, must of necessity, become a great depot for the delivery of immense quantities of flour, lumber, and other articles of merchandise, subject to the inspection laws. And as no authority was given them to cross the river and inspect articles in Alb iny county, these enterprising Trojans procured the passage of a law attaching West Troy to Troy, and giving Greenbush to Albany? that fallowing the inspectors of the two principal cities to cross the river and perform the respective duties of their offices. This arrangement has ever since continued; and during the whole period, the inspection of lumber, flour, staves, See. has been ten times as much at West Troy as it has been at Greenbush. Still not an Albany inspector was known to murmur. But now, since the completion of the Boston railroad, it seems probable that some portion of the flour destined for the eusiern market will be delivered at Greenbush. Now the Trojans wish to repeal the law, and allow their inspectors the entire control of th inspection at Greenbush. As the law was originally intended to accommodate all parties, it should be suffered to remain asit is, especially as the flour delivered at the railroad depot is mostly owned by Albany merchants.? These facts I glean from conversations held in Congress Hall. The municipal election is at hand in this city.? (This reminds me of our election; and I must not neglect to vote for Morris, for I see by the Herald I thut lie is on the course again. His majority cannot be under than 3000! Mark that,Master Greeley ) The papers are filled with the grossest and most villainous attacks on candidates for election. The democrats now in power, are industriously employed in exposing the villainies and rascalities of the whigs when they were in power; and the whigs are as ardently engaged in uttering complaints against the party now in power The whig nominee tor Mayor is represented as being one of the moat wishy-washy, bigotted, prejudiced, teetotal, religious fanatics ever known. He was once accidentally placed in the Senate, and instead of using what littlu influence he possessed in tavorol his own city and immediate constituents, he actually voted for an -appropriation of $200,000 which was used in the construction of a railroad around his own city! ?The candidate, for Mayor on the democratic side appears to be well known in the city?he is of the manor born. Very little is said concerning him.? Mr. Landon informed me that his popularity is derived from some exploit of his ancestor during the revolution. He too has been honored with a seat among the Senatorial dignitaries of yore; and to show his influence and strength in that body while a member, it is only necessary to advert to a single fact, and that is this; whenever a person wished any measure to pass that body, it was only necessary to induce Gansevoort to oppose it, and it was surely carried; and vim versat 1 am heartily disgusted with the thing, whom the people have designated as the Governor of the Empire State. Where is the manly character, the honestv of purpose, the goodness of heart, the undN guised patriotism of Daniel I). Tompkins! Where is the talent, the exalted integrity, the unsurpassed senilis, the cultivated mind, the ripened scholar, the wise philosopher, De Witt Clinton! Where the dedecision of character, the prompt execution of duty, the intimate knowledge of State affairs, and the capacity of administering the government, as was experienced during the time of William L. Marcy! And where the industry, the great ability, and acknowledged qualifications of William H.Seward! Alas! that the pioneer Stale of this nation?Aye, a nation within herself!?the envy of the whole Union ?having no rival in the records of herstatesmen.h 'r philosophers, her literati, and her democracy, should be so humiliated, so weakened as she now is, in the Exee^ive department! How can it he accounted for, that after being elevated to the station occupied so honorably by those distinguished men, and by a majority unequalled by either.he should,within three short months, be deserted by the heads of every department! why is it that a majority of the legislature, composed too. of three-fourths of his own political friends,should so soon enact laws curtailing his power! why isit, that the whole people,with the exception of the office holders, universally denounce him for his indescision and imbecility ! I'll undertake a renlu Tf 112 utao Iip hao mniprr^d nffw-inl fnvnrn upon aa many ol his own children, and other members of his family in New York, Albany and Schoharie, as places could be found for them. H; has truckled with the despicable John Tyler in obtaining the Schenectady post office for one of his sons, and the supplying of Indian annuities in the city of New York, for another of his sons. He lias been the means of thrusting upon the citizens of Albany, a man for post master, who could not be elected to the office of scavenger, by the votes of the people. And not content with the power in his own hands, he prowls about the canal, sohcitingcollectors to appoint to clerkship, some ol his own particnlarfriends of Schoharie! What dignity! Would Clinton or Marcy thus have entered the political market places, and contended like gladiators for the peily spoils ot office"! P.,or old Bouck might rather have reposed quietly ujain his canal honors, than to have aspired to an ernin nee unfitted for his capacity, and from which he will he hurled, the moment his present keijpers choose to uncage him! Let no democrat after this, ever allude to Harrison's committee. Mr. Van Buren remains in the. city He called yesterday upon Lieutenant Governor Dickinson, at Congress Hall. It seems to have been the intention ot the party at the Capital, to obtain a legislative expression favorable to his nomination at Baltimore. But the stand taken by Colonel Young against the conservatives, and his determination to resist every expedient construction of the constitution for the benefit of railroad or any other monopoly, lias prevented Foster, Croswelltte Co. from making the attempt. The days of dictation are ended. Mr. Van Bnren's friends dare not ask the democratic members of the legislature, even in caucus, take up the question. He will retire to the poplar shades of " Lindenwold," without a legislative expression. The division in the democratic party has now become apparent, and I fear the dissolution is inevitable. The cautious steps taken at the commencement of the session hv the Sherwoods, Denniston, Kutrer.

Although hitherto there has been but one copy of 1 your pa|>er taken in this town, yet every body has something to sav about it, an ! borrowing it every week, and before the week is out it is in a very tat- ] tered and dilapidated condition. Our Sheriff has, therefore, for his own and the public benefit, concluded to subscribe and take'your valuable paper.? The money is enclosed. What great mistakes some of your city papers make in regard to our western country. I wonder if the editor of the Sun knows where Iowa isl He says, in one of his last (tapers, that there is a disagreement between our Governor and legislature, about holding a session. This is all wrong. There < is a difficulty in Wisconsin of that nature. I suppose that is what he meant. This town is in one of themost beautiful spots in nnture, opposite the famous Rock Island, in the Mississippi river, just at the foot of what are called the "Upper" or "Rock Island Rapids." It contains about 1000 inhabitants, principally from Cincinnati and the eastern States. This town was commenced in 1836. We have six little churches,and another contemplated. They are at present, as you may judge, very small. The Catholics, who have a small brick one now, intend making a large one soon. We have Presbyterians, old and new school Baptists. Camnbellites, Episcopalians and Methodists Each sect nave their church or place of meeting, and their preacher. This is a very moral place?we have great temperance meetings, and almost every body belongs to the temperance society. A great revival of religion is going on in a pretty flourishing town opposite this, in Illinois. All the protestant denominations are engaged in it. The impenitent are marching forward to the " anxious seat" by hundreds. Miller's fanaticism has reached this country, and it is not seldom that we find one ready to take up in his defence. Our extremely severe winter discourages some of our new comers. It is nearly twice as long and severe as any winter I have known here for six years. The capital of Iowa is northwest 50:niles from nils Town, inr lows ijcmsiaiurf* um aumr vrry foolish things this winter. It passed a bill embracing 19 cases of divorce?no one of which, I suppose, could have gone through alone, but it was log-rollea through in a lump. They passed an odious valuation law, seeking thereby to make land and personal property a legal tender in violatiou of the Constitu tion I am rejoiced that the Supreme Court of the United States has declared valuation and stay laws effecting contracts, made prior to the law, unconstitutional. It will check, I hope, such improvident and unwise legislation. And a bill to repeal the charter of the only Banking corporation we have ever been cursed with, passed the House of Representatives unanimously, but was defeated in the Council, no doubt, by any but honest means. The evidence in regard to the "Miners' Bank" of Du Buque, showed it to he as vile and corrupt as the worst you have scored in your paper, yet with that testimony undenied before them, and with a reserved power in the charter to repeal?the repeal was defeated This is a glorious country?great plenty of provisions. We lack flour mills to manufacture our wheat, and this makes wheat very low?down to 25 and 31 cents per bushel. The Legislature this winter granted a charter entitled the "Scott csunty HvdraulicConipany." The object of it is to unite sufficient capital to construct a mill race several miles in length, along the "Upper Rapids" and terminating within two miles of town. With an outlay of $50,000, a water power of 8 or TO feet nead, having the Mississippi for a source of simply, can be made power enough for any number of flouring mills. I wish some of your capitalists would come and look at it. They can have the charter and welcome if they will come and take hold of it. Another Rochester can be made here, and then with a railroad eastward 90 miles to Peru, to connect with the Michigan and Illinois canal, a direct and quick communication can be had with New York city This country is overrun with lawyers, and has its share of physicians. I must not omit the ladies. We have as many intelligent and handsome oiks as anv town in Iowa, but, somehow, very few marriages take place. We i ' i i_"i l. A. nuve a t^uuu iimuy yuun^ i?ai;iiri?#rs win# ou^iu in turn their attention that way. They have contracted a bad habit, and one that does not improve them. Instead of going to see the young ladies and cultivating an intercoutse with them that is highly salutary in polishing and elevating the character, they meet together at various places and indulge in much foolish and unprofitable convention. With many wishes for your prosperity, I remain, yours, Amicus. Penn Tan. [Correspondence of the Herald.J Pknn Yan, March 19, 1848. Burglary ? Millerism?M j rm on i$m?Black gua rdism?Protracted Meetings, Sfc. S/-c. James G. Bennett, Esq.? Dear Sir Our community is not so far behind your own. Two lads of 16?Tuel and Dingy?a few days since broke into the jewellery shop of Charles Scott, and took therefrom about one hundred dollars' worth of property, and on returning from a peddling tour were arrested, their course retraced, and nearly all the property recovered. On examination, Tuel, a ripe, shrewd lad, turned State's evidence, and attempted to implicate with himself and Dingy, a young man by the name of Barnes, against whom he had sworn revenge for exposing the fact of his having stolen the clothes of a dead sister to give to a girl in the employ of Barnes. His examination exposed a degree of maturity in crime, which at that age is seldom found equalled even in " old Gotham." Larceny and burglary seem to be with him but the trifling incidents of life. A Millerite recently preached a sermon at the Baptist church at the instance of their officiating minister. He drew crowds from curiosity; yet few were gulley, and he was allowed to withdraw, and the excitement made use of to continue a protracted meeting A Mormon has also been holding one at Prntts town, sixteen miles from this, who has tor some days been expected here, to commence a series of efforts, as a set-off to those now carried on at the Methodist chapel by one Adams, who issaid to have remarked in the pulpit that it a sinner would ?o to hell, railroad speed, he must get two Presbyterians for wheel hor-es, and two Episcopalians tor leaders, and that the Baptists, as they came out of the water, were like hischicken, whose shell lie broke off when it was first pecked, and giving one peep it died. That the seceding portion of the Methodist church were backsliding hyjiocrites, and had no more religion ih in the devil, and were like the abolitionists ot the congregational church. The temperance reformers are doing a wholesale business in this section. The opposition manifested by the use ot eggs, and herrini, and crackers, needed by a mercantile and a grocery firm, dwindled down to a hired negro on a box, inspiriied by his own exertions in favor of "good liquor," and the attendance of five boys to encore his sneers at "cold water;" nnd tor whom, when he had stopped, another negro apologized by saying, "that poor fellow's skin is whiter than the heart of those who hired him " The result of the exertions of ourcold water boys is the reformation, with one or two exceptions, of every drunkard in town. Among them are individual cases of great interest. Our roads are, by a recent storm, so fiiled with snow, 11s to compel the use of fields in their place to a great extent. At this time last year the navigation of our lake had opened, but now the ice is last increasing in thickness The ground bv our January thaw was saturated with water; and a sudden thrt w must produce a Hood, and tnr destruction oi much property in this section of the Ptate. Aside Irorn the principle involved, President Tyler missed his figure by signing the repeal of the Bankrupt law. A diflerent course would have made for him a strong party here. Of those originally opposed to it, many remark that the scoundrels were the first to 'ake the benefit of it, and now came the time for the honest and really poor men. Your publication of Anthony I)ey's schedule did much good, and gave the people here a fair sample of high life below stairs?of shooting at an eagle, and hitting a |<otatoe hole?of the shortness of the step from the sublime to the ridiculous, as exhibited by his management of Ins pecuniary aflairs. The eflect was, doubtless, still better on your own city, where the tendencies to a similar course are so strong. It is really amusing to see the poor maw flounce.

Further, the certificate hearing his name is attested by Alderman Hatfield and Mahlon Day, two of our worthy citizens. In justice to them we free them from ashadow of connivance at this palpable humbug to deceive the unwary; but it should serve as a caution to the afflicted, who may be imposed on by an array of names, by individuals who * scruple not to use such a mask to deceive, and who have tried ineffectually to imitate Bristol's Sarsaparilla.
