(K^- Our subscribers at Sinn can bo stipptieu regularly every morning by Messrs. Stanton St Canniff, agent* for the Herald at that place. Mo? of the Romance?Captain Tyler on John Minor Botts --The publication of the celebrated Lk-ttkh of John Botif, giving certain scenes in the " Romance of Tvleriam," which took place a' ihe White Houee and Brown's Hotel, Washing* ton, in 1*41, created a great sensation and n great a,.;h in this neighborhood. The mouth of every politician, whig or locoloco, is yet stretched Irom ear to ear. Even the little dogs about the Park Fountain grinned with pure enjoyment at the rich iie-enptions, which put Dickens or Walter Scott to the blush. We are very sorry, however, to find in the " Mail ,<otiwtrr'several additional statements,which somewhat impair the credibility of John Botts'sketches notwithstanding his affidavit, price one shilling, w inch was affixed to the letter. John Jonrs puts iorth the follow ing articles on the other side:? [From the Madisonian.] suri'im, with thkyice Pbksipkwt.?We are told Mr. Botts make* oath that he slept in the same bed with Mr. Tyler the night before the inauguration of General Har. rison. and that they talked till al'ier midnight. This may be true. Kvery nook and corner in the city was crammed at that time Every bed contained at least two sleepers. Strangers met Irom all quarters. L'nder these circumstance* ittnay he true that Mr. Tyler permi ted Mr. B >t'*to share his bed, Mr. Botts being a Virginian. But is it not more than probat le that all the revelations said by Mr Botts to have heen made to him bv Mr. Tyler, were the more phantasms of a troubled brain? Had not Mr Botts been taking wine during the day? Did henot have the headache i.f night? any a inan will jainder ?v r >he things seen and heard in a dream, till ut length he will sw ear they w ere realities. We have seen men ri?e from their bedi with eyes wide staring, who sw ore they were surrounded with devils, notwithstanding the Doctor's assertions to the contrary. He (Mr Botts) is represented as having charged the President pnidicly in his late electioneering campaign, as uai ing said to him on the third day of the extra session? That he meant to be a candidate, not ;only for four, but for eight years from the 4th ot March,'46, thus making the whole term of his service twelve years ; and then rhat the President had offered him any otlice in his gift, provided he (BotU) would sustain him in his aspirations , and tl.i >1 That he, John Minor Botts, from this time ceased to visit the President. So far as the fust specification is concerned, we are authorized to say, that at the time at which this invented corversation ol Mr John Minor Cotts is said hy him to have occurred, the rn-sidont hud no intention ol t eing a candidate ior tin* 1'residt ncv ia 1914. The President was only prevented from introducing an annunciation to this effect, in his Inaugural Address, hy considerations ol great public weight, and would have made it in his so coiid Veto message, if his then Cabinet had not urgently opposed it, upon the question being solemnly submitted to them. 9o far as the second specification is concerned, we are authorized to say, that the President never made , to Mr. John Minor Botts any offer of any office, of any sort, or of auv character, st anytime or at any place, for any purpose or object w hatever. And, Sot:r is the third specification is concerned, we are authorized to say,that so far from Mr. John Minor Potts having ceased to visit the President from and after the third day of theextTa session, he repeatedly called at the White House, until hv pursued a course which precluded th? President from having any further communication 1 ?l 'i him. That transaction was this: During the pendencv before the Senate of Mr. Clay's Bank bill it was ascertain?'! tnat Messrs. Merrick, I'reston, Rives, and Archer, wo Id not sustain it without the insertion of eticii a mortification as would reconcile it with the constitutional s-tuples of the President, and with their opposition it stood in a minority. At this juncture of affairs Mr. John Minor Bntts called upon the President, with a paper tmroorti g to be such nn amendment, which he said had beer. drawn up hy himself, and thought would remove all difficulties upon the subject of a bank. Aft. r ex ictiug from Mr. John Minor Botts the positive assurance that il the amendment did not meet his approbation, it should be d< stroye.l and never more heard ol, lent took i' and examined it. and iii'tantaueously r. jr t t it. w ill. the i mphatic declaration that he would i vj; rbly veto at y hill containing such a clause. Whereo . Mr John Mi" Bolts re i orated his prom is" to dealt < U and retired. The President thought no more oi the n itter uu'.il a le v day* afterwards, when the whig press w - bl ed with laudations oi Mr. Botts for having fallen 11 this very expedient; and Mr. Clay subsequently affer.-d it in the Sena'e Chamber, substantially, it not liter's -s an amendment 10 his bill ! The tuBchcry in the whole conduct of Mr. John Minor Butts became se appare: . tha? the Pi e*id? Dt ever afterwards refused to hold intercourse with bim either by word or in writing These, charge of Mr. Botts remind ti? of one which he mi !c against the President at an early period of the conic-' t veen Mr. Tyler and the ultra whig*. The honorable gentleman llipii stated that, while .Mr. Tyler was at Brown's Haiti, a, ting us Presi lent of the Senate, shortly after the inatigurati-n of General Harrison, he waited upon Mr Tyler at his rooms in company with another gi n'.leman, atid Mr, Tyler did then and there to them de. clare himself in luvor of a Bank of the United States. Wo havr never, by authority, denied this charge before?but we are now authorized to say that Mr Botts, in making sticii a decliration, affirm'J what was false in every partitular. By tlie^e au'honscd contradictions, it would appear, fhar in spite of the aflidavit, John Botts has tc en drawing a little on his imagination forthe facts. Tlr- is, however, very natural in a man ot genius. Tne foundation of the "Romance" is fact?the rest j~ ornaments furnished by John Botts. This is the wuy with all men of original genius, from Homer down to John Botts. P.,.1 ci,b.T.iln ,?1,? Jo nuinxH bo Captain Tyler, hook and line, contradicts John li.itts, who happens to be the property of Mr. Clay, in sever..I particulars, such as those about the bank, the public lands, the three term.-.?yet most material in ' important admissions are made, which establish the " deuiocracie" of Captain Tyler beyond a reasonable doubt. First, it is admitted that Captain Tyler and John Botts talked, swore, and slept in the same bed, nuder the very same blanket, in Brown's Hotel, in Washington, on the 31 of March, 1*41. John Jones dare not deny this most important fact?a fact which establishes the equal rights principles and " rii mocracie" of Captain Tyler heyond a question. This is precisely ine Baiae way in which the "young deinocracic" sleep together in crtain places before an election?it is called "colonization in New York, bu' it has not yet been christened in Washington.? We have also every reason to believe that this democratic practice in Captain Tyler, sharing his very bed with John Botts, has given as terrible offence to the whigs as it will be approved by the locofocos. Ci,p'4in Tyler now stands high in the affections of the latter. The next point of importance is the truth or falsehood of the ornaments and trimmings of the diaIngue, otherwise called " protane swearing," which interlards the conversation. In relation to this point, John Tones does not say a word, and therefore does no- deny it. The swearing is, therefore, virtually admitted, Hnd constitutes another feature in the character of Captain Tyler, tha' assimilates him to tli<- locofocos about Tammany Hall or the Pewter .Muz, particularly before an election. li will be observed, therefore, that these rem.irkab.< disclosures establish on the very best whig authority, under the sanction of un oath, price one shilling,'he identity in the principles, hahits, manners, language, even down to the doings in the verv bed room, between Captain Tvler and the " young democracie." We say nothing about the propriety, or tasie, or motives of John Bolt- in making such disclosures. According to the fvness of things or the conventional rule among gentlemen, it would really appeur that Botfs hnd been induced to nve the .Captain such a* certificate, in return for the promise of some office or mission. Certainly no wine, sensible, man?no gentleman of ony tact?not vn John Miner Botts? would make, to use the r!fi>?ic language of he Wiiite House and Browne's Hotel, such "a d?d fool" of himself as Botts lias lone, without receiving something for it. We, therefore, nominate John Miner Botts, minister plenipotentiary to the rmshty Jsland of Baratsria, th re to negotiate a treaty with the immortal Sancho J'anza. Confirmed?go The Somkrs Case?The demand upon Commoiorc Read and Captain Gwinn, to testify touching i tlie state of the vote in the Court Martini u|s?n Commander Mackenzie, was argued yesterday in Phils drl(ifiia liefnre Judge King, who will, in a few days give his decision. y .1r- Charles F Miller has n petition before ike L-gis.ature ol Connecticut for divorce. L i a ii,,.,,.. ... k Whitincj.?Wc would I r->1- cttully a;-k the able and w orthy District Attorney, James R. Whiting, what is the reason that he ha> delayed the trial of the indictment against Moses Y. Beach, for nearly four terms of the Court of Sessions ? Was not that libel sufficiently wicked to ' require the prompt administration of the laws'! Was there ever a libel in any country equal to it in atrocity 1 Has James R. Whiting permitted it to escape his notice ? Is it the expectation of Miller's end of the world, that is the cause of the delay 1 Do, tell. Damcl Wkkstkr in Bai.timork.?We understand that Mr. Webster will attend a public dinner, to be given to him to-morrow evening in Baltimore. It is now generally supposed that on this occasion Mr. Webrter will come forth in his old style, and defend his position with a power and force of intellect that will startle the whole nation. The important question put in Faneuil Hall, " where shall I go V' will now receive a full and complete answer, and a variety of mysterious matters will be eleared up, and made to shine as the light of day. The speculations and rumors on the position and purposes of Mr. Webster in leaving the cabinet, have been numerous and contradictory. One was mai i>npiain nooert i yier inougni nis continuance [ in the cabinet was a bar between Captain Tyler and the embraces of the " young democracie" of New York. This notion was generated by Noah and oiher fools. Another was, that Mr. Webster retired from the cabinet only to assume a higher position in the negotiation of anew commercial treaty with I England. This was plausible. But the most probable of any is contained in one of the paragraphs of John M. Botts' famous letter recently published, as fellows:? On the same day [third day of the Extra Session] and during the same conversation, I was further informed of Mr. Tyler's views in reference to Mr. Clay as hi* successor, hy an invitation to unite with him in making Mr. Webster the " strong nan of the South" for the Presidency. " He is the man," said he, " lor as ; and if you will unite with me, we can make him the popular man with all the Southern people." To which 1 replied,that" I should be glad to see many of the prejudices then existing in the Southern country against Mr. Webster, removed, and ahould like to see him President, but oil in good lime, Mr.Tyler! his time has not yet come?there is one before him with far higher and stronger claims on the South and the whole country? and Mr. Webster must wait his time".?John M. Bolts' Letter. By this singular revelation it would appear that Daniel actually leaves the cabinet to become a candidate far the Presidency?and that he is the candidate, and nominee of Captain Tyler himself . This puts an entire new face upon things, and gives the deepest interest to the movements of Mr. Webster. It would appear, therefore, that John Tyler, John C. Calhoun, John C. b'pencer and Dan;?l W.u.r i.?,w;<r?.?. .w .. vw. u.v ^..>.1..; IIUIII UII.VIC.ll |AIIUIC, ill a broad field of operations against Clay on the one side, and Van Buren on the other. JohnC. Spencer in this State, with the whole patronage of the General Government, will make a terrible inroad upon the affections of the "young dem?cracie" and the* power of Mr. Van Buren. He is a mighty mind, and will be felt to the inmost recesses of Lindenwold. Already the whole democratic Corporation, including Alderman Purdy, the good old jovial "Ironsides" of the party, are beginning to raise their caps for Captain Tyler, and to prepare to give itini a great reception. This isMr. Spencer's doings. In the South, Mr. Calhoun is operating hot aud heavy and Mr. Webster goes back to New England, to begin a new game, and create a new organization of (wrties. We are on the eve of sudden revolutions among politicians and parties. Mr. Webster's speech in Baltimore will be the first gun in the general war? and as it will be very interesting, we shall send a (orpt of reporters to Baltimore, and expect to be able to receive it by express, and to publish it on Saturday morning. So look out. John Jones the Second, or the Donkey op the Washington Globe ?Mr. James E. Harvey, who was so violently assailed by John Jones the second, of the Washington Globe, has published a correspondence he has had with Secretary S|?encer, by which it appears that the integrity, honesty, and respectability of Mr. Harvey are unimpeachable. Mr. Harvey intends to commence an action at law against John Jones ot the Globe?alias " Young Blair"?making two cases on hand eo early in the season. Reception ok the President.?We understand that the "democracie" of the Corporation, Tammany Hall,Pewter Mug, <fcc. intend to give Capiain Tyler, in his progress next month, one of the most splendid receptions that ever was given t? n President in New York. There will be a perfect abandon on the subiect. The whiss will stand aloof and laugh. We would advise Mr. Van Buren to look well to his house and his household troops. They ure in danger. Mrs. Sutton's Farewell Benefit.?This evening Mrs. Sutton, one of the best vocalists and opera singers that ever visited this country, gives in the Tabernacle her farewell concert and benefit this evening, previous to her departure lor Italy. She will be assisted by Mr. Bley, a most superb violinist, from Paris, one of the best in the country ?also by other artists, whose names will be found in the advertisements aud bills. Her little daughter will also make her laBt appearance. Mr. Frank Brown, so well known in this city, also sings; and he may rest assured that his numerous friends will not tail him. Mrs. Sutton ought to have an overflowing concert. Besides talents of a very high order, she has given away her services rnoet liberally to several benevo lent societies, who ought to exert on this occasion, I and testify to her melius and benevolence. This will positively be her last appearance in this city tor many years to come ; and no one will let pass this only opportunity 01 neanng, ior wie last lime, one whose name will, ere long, be again borne on the pinions ol fame throughout Europe. Uo.i. Joh.i M. Niles.?This gentleman ia and has been, for some time paat, in a very feeble state of mind and body, owing, it is said, to recent domestic afflictions and pecuniary reverses We should not be surprised if his resignation as United States Senator should be tendered to the Legislature before its adjournment. City Intelligence. Comino the Danr Game.?Yesterday afternoon as officer Cockefair was passing through the Park, near ihe Fountain, he espied two boys endeavoring to come "the drop" with a imeket book, in order to catch a countryman, and vtlien the thing was fairly set he stepped forward and arrested both and rarryed tliem to the police office. On searching the pocket book it was found to contain about 8200 in counterfeit notes of the Globe and other banks The h"ys gave their names as James Willis and Jacob Graham, and not giving a full account of themselves were committed for examination. Moke Deowned Bodies.?The body of a man whose name is unknown, was found yesterday at Pier No 8, E R , and that of a colored woman at the foot ol Fifth street. They will both remain at the dead house in the Park during the day for recognition, Chii.d Kiu.ed by Laudanum ?A child aged about five years, belonging to Isaac Manning, of Charles (street, was killed yesterday by drinking laudanum from a vial that had been left at the house. Parents should be more careful. ~srr.< iai, mirsions.?In the Special Sessions yesterday morning,Louis Dimpfel, chaired with drawir?i5 a dirk knife on officer Maker, while he wan in the act of arresting him Inr assault and battery, committed on a Marahall, wan sent to the city prison for thirty days. Unknown Man ?The body of n man whose name could not be ascertained, was found yesterday morninn at the teot of Courtlandt street, in the slip He was dressed in two pairs ol satinet nants, stri|>ed shirt and roundabout, and ?i>peared to be aboui 30 years ol age. Cokkki TtoN.?In the Herald bearing date Rth October, 1812, we reported a trial before Recordei Talltnadge, against William McAlheny, for keeping a disorderly house, on which occasion we etu ted that we understood O'Oonnell, a witness in ilie ea-e( would be indicted for keeping h disorder ly iiouse and disiiutiiiiK the neighborhood. We have since fx n fully satisfied the above statement war erroneous, and that 'no such intention was ever entertained either by the District Attorney or any onr els*. Krle Railroad. Dear Bennett:? Your Herald of the 16th mat. notice* the tenacity witn which Bowen and others held on to the New York and Erie Railroad Company. This has Ions been a matter ot surprise to many, but I think that if you were to put a few queries in relation to the true point at issue, between the officers of this company and the public, that the reason of this tenacious holding over would become quite plain. This company has received from the people #3,. 000,000 for a specific purpose. This money has been expended. Now the |>oint at issue is, has it been expended for the purpose for which it wasappropriated, viz: the construction of the New York and Erie Railroad. Doubts in relation to the expenditure of this money has existed in the public nnnd; hence the investigating committe authorized by our State Legis lature. 1 lie report of this committee says that, "no specific charge of fraud or mismanagement on the part of this company has been made by any individual," but that, "vague insinuations and general allegation! of something wrong" existed in the community; the charge then was not in regard to the company in its collective capacity,but that a system of financial pipe laying had been introduced by some one, the aim of which wub to divert the public money Irom its appropriate channel. An examination of the report of this committee to the Assembly aif ill aknuf that thu Qluto Innn timo nit nffot KnP Ltut sight of ; and that said committee on being told that 450 miles of railroad was nearly completed, they immediately concluded that, " instead of being liable to censure,the company was entitled to approbation " But has this satisfied the public mindl No! and ihe sain; insinuations, though perhaps not quite so "vague" still exist ; and if the present company do not wish that what is alleged by these rumours, viz: fraud and mismanagement, to rest with them ; it is their duly to lay a complete statement before the public, one that will 6how the purposes lor which the whole of the three millions have been expended. All the reports, including tliat to the Legislature, are deficient in this respect. The only statement that we have which throws any light on this subject is that which appeared in the "Morning Express," April 24,1843, signed "One who Knows " This, like all others, only tells hall the stery; yet we are inclined to think it tells more than the writer intended ; and as we think it important, would direct the attention of the public to what it asserts. We consider this statement official, as it emanates from the office at Piermont, and was written by "one who knows" more than he dare make public. "One who Knows" informs the public that over #6,000,000 has been expended on the work. He then goes on to account ior the manner in which it has been expended thus. The eastern division ip now finished, the expenditure being $1,806,358 88. The expenditure on the third division, $226,949 77. The expenditure on the fourth division, $799,5S1 02. Total amount expended in the construction of the New York and Erie Railroad, $2,831 889 67: Deduct this from $5,000,000, and there is $2,368,110 33 to be accounted for. In regard to the second and fifth divisions, the expenditure is not given. Now why is this1? Why are these garbled statements given to the public 1 it is well known that Jthere has not been #800.000 expended on the second and fifth divisions Who received the public money t " On* ulin Tfnnivij" further infnrmn the nubile that the eastern division now in operation earns at ' least $30,000 per annum. If this is I lie case, why are the mechanics and laborers deprived ot their wages! It is well known in Piermont that there is now due the workmen lor labor over $5,000. And this, be it understood, for work done since the road was nut in operation. But I must conclude, promising that should Bowen, Seymour & Co. still hold over, and the Company reluse to give the information now required by the public in relation to the three millions, we will proceed to lay before your readers a history of the New York and Erie Kailroad, showing the position of Piermont, aud the probable location of Dunkirk, | as laid down by the consulting engineer,Miller,to be within five miles of Ramapo valley. Belore closing we would allude to one or two important facts : That one half million dollars has not been expended on this road west of Goshen?that the remaining two and a half millions has been expended on the eastern division, or has otherwise to he accounted for?the money raised by the Company we will notice at a future time?that all reports given by the engineers west of Goshen ure plain and easily undeistood, and we therefore suppose, correct?that all the reports made in relation to the east division arc vague and obscure, and cannot be understood ; and further, it was the intention of their authors that they should not be understood. We here referlo all the statements and schedules in relation to the eastern division,given in the State repert N'o.Ss4, May lfS41 We will notice one glaring example. The Company were charged with employing an unusual number of officers whose salary exceeded $600 per annum. The schedule C. on page 34, protesses to give the number of officers on the eastern division, and among a numerous array ol names and occupations we hnd one chiel engineer. Miller, at $4,000 per annum; six resident engineers, including H. C. Seymour ; two assistant resident engineers ; four chief assistant engineers; nine assistant engineers and eight sub-engineers ; six superintendents and two draftsmen- Now we wish it understood, that these engineers were all employed on the pastern di visiuii, i" iiiiico iuii* ; inn (mi a luau t.iu iiiiicb tuug, as reported by Win I?. M'Olay. The reports ot the Susquehannah division we know to he correct; they bear the evidence of truth upon their lace. Not so these statements of the eastern division. When the engineers of the company were examined upon oath, C. B. Stuart, Chief Engineer of the Susquehannah division, answers promptly with a schedule, showing the number of persons cmployed on the division, the lime they were in the company's employ,their salary per annum, and whole amount paid. If C. Seymour, Chief Engineer of the eastern division, aiiswers in his deposition, that he does not know how manv persons have been employed at the rate of $600 per annum. Here Wm B. Maclay's interrogatory was evaded by the have been And it will be found on examination, that this evasion has been adopted in all that relates to the eastern division. Schedule C. was drawn up under tlv direction of Mr. Bowen ; but why he should interfere with the duty of the engineers of this division, and not of the others, remains to be explained. One word more. We are told that the company is now under a new direction ; yes, and what is the company 1 bankrupt without resources, without credit, and the whole direction of the eastern division yet rests with Bowen, Pierson, Blanch, and Seymour. In the fall of 1840, George E Hoffman, Esq. was removed from the work as Superintendent, in order . to accomplish which, the contract with Dr Doubleday was cancelled, which,together with the destruction of machinery, and the delay in opening the road, cost the company over $50,000. In the fall of 1841, It. C. Seymour was appointed Superintendent ol the eastern division by James Bowen, contrary to the wishes of all the stockholders in Rockland county. Since that time, all the sub-engineers of the eastern division have been maintained i.i idleness on hall pay. About this time, Mr. M. Williamson, a good sound democrat, was removed from the office ol Collector at Piermont ; and Henry Avers, an active whig, was :;ent Irotn New York to fill the vacancy In the spring ol 1812, during the Glentworth ex citement, a meetin* was held at Piermont by the stockholders and contractors, to take measures tr remove Mr. Bowrn Irom the Presidency. 'Hit meeting was addressed by Judge Blawvelt of Pier rnont, who recommended a call lor Mr. Bowen's re signation. This was resolved upon, and the meet ing adjourned to meet thelollowing week. In th< mean time secret measures were taken to prevent i further discussion of the matter. Mr. Bowen pro mised to resign, and the contractors we believe wert put on half pay. So the aflair was hushed up 1 More anon Yours, From Rockhahd i Court of Common Pleas. Before Judge Ulshoeff'er.

As for her worthy Captain, he has long been known on the Hudson as one of the most gentlemanly fellows that ever walked a deck. The boat and her commander are well matched. Ice, Ice? Croton Cooler.?The Union Rockland Lake Ice Company turned out yesterday in splendid style, with twenty-one icc wagons. This j new and extensive company h?ive erected on Rockland Lake the largest ice house in the world, and it is capable of holding 15,000 tons of ice,which is full up to the very top of splendid ice ; and we ad- j viae all who wish to be kept cool during the warm , season, to make immediate application at their of- ! fice, 80 Wall street, corner of Front street, or at I their Ice Ranges, at the foot of Duane street, |and ( also their depot at Brooklyn, between Fulton and 1 South Ferries, Furman street.

Oy- THE LONDON LANCET.-London, February 11, 1943.?(Republished at New York, April 8, 1843.) ? " Mr. W. WR'OHT mentions to us a case in which a hydropathist at Malvern prescribed for a young lady the I placing the back of her head tip to the ears in a vessel of cold water, every day, for an hour, to cure her ol a deafness, advising, in addition, that her " luxuriant" hair should be " put up" in its usual form to dtry " at leisure." Mr. Wright interiered, and prevented the treatment, being of opinion that habitual wetting of the hair, whether as a remedy for deafness or for other disease*, or to give a handsome appearance to the head, is very injurious. It is uotneeessary to insert the notices oflnstaiaces which Mr. Wright cites in asserting this opinion." For more ^evidence read what Grandjean himself says in hie pamphlet, pages 15 and 17:?

Mr. Sou'hali, bearer of despatches to Mexico, had arrived at Vera Cruz when Mr. Crittenden left.? The Falmouth was in port awaiting the first payment of the Mexican indemnity. The prevailing opinion in Mexico was that the payment would be effectuated. It i* confidently asserted that General Waddy Thompson was determined to demand his passports and leave the country in the event of the non payment of the first instalment. It wus also currency asserted that Santa Ana would be invested with the dictatorship of Mexico by the Junta. Sixty-two Texan prisoners were in Mexico, a non? whom were Col. Fisher, Geo. Green, Geo.

D 1842 This celebrated Extract is fast superseding all the in. ert and useless mixtures prepared by druggists who are totally incapable of knowing the medicinal properties, or curative powers, of the roots they employ. By referring to the morning papers, the public will at onoe perceive that this worst species of quackery is doing incalculable injury, whilst the venders of thia miserable compound of destructive minerals, and a watery decoction of the common American Sarsaparilla, are parading, in the New York press the certificate of a man as cured, who is in hit grave, and has been since using these destructive mixtures. The Collego of Medicine and Pharm icy of the city of New York hereby promise to pay to any person, who will prove that their extract contains a particle of any mineral, the sum of One Thousand Dollars. The College have received hundreds of genuine certificates, from persons that were really benefitted by their Extract, but knowing the value the enlightened part of the community put on all certificates published, not for the publie good, but for self interest, they determined, from the time they opened their establishment, not to publish any certificate, no matter how strong or Battering to themselves. Their Extract is confidently recommended as the best specific for all diseases arising from au impurity of the blood, such as scrofula, ringworm or tetter, sy phi. litic ulcers, rheumatism, pimples on the face, pains in the bones, enlargement of the joints, salt rhuem, or any disease having its origin in a corrupt state of the blood.

The following Is from the Commercial of to-day " Ohio Loar.?We are requested and authorised to say, and from a source that cannot be mistaken, that the article in the HeraM of this morning, in relation to the Ohio loan, ia false in every particular. ' The Commercial has uttered a wilful falsehood at the dictation of some one as base as itself. We publishedaimply an extract from the law authorising the loan, and advised the contractors to take advantage of its provisions and sell their stock themselves, without trusting those who have made " ducks and drakes" with the property of the State. If the law is false, it is not the onlv official falsehood that has issued from Ohio, by very many. A weitern paper, commenting on the estimate of the value of the Canal land* offered in trust to the subscribers of the new Illinois loan,states $10 per acre to be far too high. To our mind this displays a want of information on the subject. Over 100,000 acres of the same original lot of land have been sold, and in no instance at less than $8 per acre. Why the remainder, which is better situated, should not be worth $10 per acre on the completion of the canal, we are at a loss to know.

Flour was 34} ppr cent dearer in London than in Paria, and 54 per cent dearer than in New York It will be taken into view that thi* state of pricea existed i at the close ol winter in New York, after the avenues o f supply had been closed some months, and therefore usually a period of high prices. Since then the rate has fallen, consequent upon the opening of the canals. The New York prices that we have quoted are at the rate of 95 cents per bushel for wheat, and $4.62} per barrel of 200 lbs. The difference in price that the English poor have to pay for food above that of France and the United States, is about equivalent to the duty, sad appertains as well to provisions a* to breadstuff*. It is estimated that the value oi bread and provisions consumed in England is $250,000,000 per annum ; 40 per cent on this is $100,000,006. This might be reduced one half by the proposed amelioration of the tariff in favor of American produce, which is to the r effect that American wheat may be admitted into Canada, for grinding, at 3s. per quarter, and the Flour made adi nutted into England at 3s. per barrel. Thus, 5 quarters 1 of wheat will pay 16s. duty, going into Canoda, and will | make 8 barrels ot flour that will pay 24s. going into Engt land?making 30s. paid by 5 quaiters, or 7s 9}d per quarter at the highest rates of duty, or 4*. 7d. ot the lowest rates, which is equivalent to II percent on the cost of ' ./ sl.unln?

This assertion m:ght becorrtct, provided it ware conformable to fact that the unconditional remission of duties, on ourpait, could present to foreign countries an inducement to mitigate their tariffs. But an unconditional remiasion of import duties upon our part, could have no such effect. It
