The miserable management which seeks to enhance the revenues of the post office department, which wan established lor the convenience of the public, by making it the instrument oi oppression nnd exaction, rather than a public benefit, cannot be toe severely dealt with. The high rates of postage, which have always been charged, have ever since the formation of the government, induced attempts to send letters by some cheaper mode of conveyance ; but while there were no railroads, and comparatively few steamboats, these efforts effected the revenues but in a very small degree; consequently up to 1827, the revenues of the department constantly exceeded the expenditures. From that year up to the present, the receipts have never equalled the expenditures, with the exception of the three years of general extravagance, 1836, 183t?, 1837. At the olose of the last named year, there was a surplus in the department of $756 209 The then postmaster earnestly pressed upon Conp'cw, the necessity of reducing the postages; but instead of seizing that moment to put the depart li, ;t upon a proper system, the surplus was only t! : id extending the routes. About that time a n' w o! mentcame into existence, growing out ot e trfri at our old posi office system was totally !, Hge, and utterly inadequate to the wants < ; imunity. This was the establishment of H i.- .; li b Fxpress, for the purpose of carrying i aliases. This business grew rapidly, and becoming important, he soon made arrangements with steamboats and railroads, mutually beneficial, on the establishment of Cunard's line of steamboats. He was tendered and accepted the exclusive freight agency of that line. This made the establishment of a branch in Liverpool necessary. Out of this arrangement grew an important enterprise. In former years almost the only mode of forwarding foreign letters from this country, was to drop them in the bag cf the newi rooms in each city, by the keepers of which they were forwarded sometimes through the mail, but mostly by private hand, to New York, to arrive on the day of the sailing of a packet. Very frequently these packages would arrive in New York too late, and lay over to the sailing of the next. Th? establishment of Harnden's express opened a sure channel of communication for these letters, and his branch in Liverpool affords a still greater advantage. It is that the postage ?f a letter can be paid to him in any of the Atlantic cities in advance, to any part of England or the continent. Harnden will carry the letter, Bay from Philadelphia to Boston, pay it at Boston to Liverpool, and his agent there will pay it to any place between Liverpool and Vienna. The promptness, regularity, and skill, with which Harnden's business is conducted, are well known to the public. His line of expresses is quite as important to it as the miserably managed post office arrangements. So sensible is the department of this, that the Philadelphia postmaster writes to Mr. WickliflV as follows "A hit hi v respectable and extensive merchant of Philadelphia informed me,that to his certain knowledge, Harnden was in toe habit of conveying by his express, multitudes of letters which ought to be transmitted bv mail. If an onoortMnitv shnnlH he afforded of bringing up on a subpcena, any o( our large commission dry poods merchants, either in Philadelphia, New York, or Boston, there would not be the slightest difficulty in establishing the tact of Harnden's gross violations of the post office laws ?and Jam firmly convinced that if he and Adamt be not put down, they will ere long put down the pott office department." Now, Harnden, by his enterprise, has partly met the great want of the community, viz. a cheap and expeditious mode of conveying letters. The world has advanced sixty years since the old and inadequate system now in operation, was established, and it is falling into decay. In this state of affairs how is it that the present Postmaster General seeks to retrieve its affairs 1 By seeking to increase the facilities afforded to the public"? Far from it. He sues Harnden for carrying bundles, and forbids the transportation of new?(>apers except at a charge so onerous as to prohibit them altogether. It is scarcely possible that a public man can be so narrow minded, so tar behind the age, so much pufted up with a little authority, as to imagine that he can put down public opinion, and roll back the tide of enterprise. Already a line of coaches has been established between Baltimore and Washington, to carry the papers prohibited on the Railroad by Mr. Wicklitie.? Public enterprises will be stimulated by oppression ic all directions, until Mr. Wicklifle is buried beneath the ruins of his abused department. No departmeni of the government will be tolerated any longer than it serves the people. The moment it becomes antagonist to the public interest it must perish II private enterprise can do better than the government arrangements, the latter must cease. Canadian Affairs.?The Provincial Parliament of the United Provinces of Canada, commenced on * "^th ult , at Kingston, probably for the last time, cations are that it will be removed from v:i.but whither has not transpired. Onestri . nee of the removal is the resignation of r ?"tary Harrison, of Canada West, which as prompted by his position in the cabinet on the v?i guT'-uniicui ?4ur8iiou, wiucn is io de maap t cabinet measure. It is said thai he stood alone ii the cabinet, all his colleagues being opposed to him his resignation, therefore, when his relationship tc the borough of Kingston is considered, will afford an elucidation of the steps to be pursued by the government. The uncertainty which has heretofore existed, and the change to be hereafter made, will prove expensive and disastrous. In Kingston much has been done to fit it for the seat of government; buildings have been erected, and streets laid out, which will now but afford evidence of faded hopes. Property which had increased in value, will be suddenly depreciated, and probably Bytown would have been subjtcted to the same fate, if the government had been removed thither. Montreal, however, is the place fixed upon, as we understand, and I litre will be many advantages there which could not have been found elsewhere. Amongst the other measures which are likely to engage the attention of the Parliament, will be that of agricultural protection On this theme Mr. Webster discoursed oracularly at the State Agricultural Fair, lately held at Rochester, but whether the Canadian government is acting on the views there expressed, or has some nostrum of his own, we are not apprised. Mr. Vattimark.?The Paris correspondent of th? Boston Atlas writes: "Alexander Vattemare, the luerary exchange man, has a grand exhibition 01 the Boulevard, of the engravuigBand pictures whicl fie ha* collected in his travels. Those from Ame rica fill two large rooms, and excite a good deal o attention, particularly some speci/nro* of bank noti 'ngravingn from yo*r city." ijt>- Thf Hon. Daniel Webster arrived at hitreai .l*nce in Washington on Friday morning, to reman nil or eight day*. t nrrmrnti of the French-Important ftvm Aflrlen-Bitenilon of Power. It appears by letters received from Cape l'almoc that the French are determined to rival England in every part of the world. We mentioned a tew days ago, and exclusively too, that the French had taken posM-nion of another place on (he coast of Africa, and were rapidly and strongly lortifyincit with heavy cannon and block foru. This intelligence is now confirmed. It is certain that the French government have taken the Oar roway country, and have block houses and frames for dwellings at Senegal, awaiting freight them to the new colony. It seems to us thai there is no great harm ia this movement. All that is necessary for us is to keen up our squadron in that section, and not permit any interference with our trade. To this movement England has left no stone unturned to drive the French and Americans from that coast, so that she might secure the trade wholly to herself; but this last seizure on the part of France warranting a iorce from that country also present, and our own squadron will prevent any lurther aggressions in that quarter. But aside Irom this view, does not the extension of French territory indicate th*1 course Louis Philippe intends to pursue lor the future 1 Her occupation of Algeria, her seizure of the Marquesas, her intention in regard to Spain, her alliance with Brazil, her line of Atlantic steam packets, her sending a special minister to China, her every movement in fact exhibit plainly her determination to be paramount in Europe. Whether she will be so or not, of course remains to be seen. We know of no govhrnment so active just at this time. But nou$ verrons. Travelling, a.nb Constructive Travelling ? A question has recently arisen at the Oyer and Terminer, held in Jefferson city, in the State of Missouri, which possesses a public interest from its adherence to the precedent Bet by our Congressional law-makers. It turns out, however, that the law makers, being absolute, can remunerate themselves, but that the principle will not hold good with jurors. In the case referred to, it appears the Grand Jury came into Court, with indictments against John and David McDaniel, Brown, Towson and Mason, for murder ; and McCormick, Berry, Prefontaine, Morton and Harris, for larceny. Abraham Shafer, the clerk of Cky county, was indicted lor misprison of felony. Shafer, who wee there as a witness, was arrested, and by counsel moved to quash the indictment against him, for the reason that a felonious intent was no where charged. It was also intimated that the indictment was imperfect in charging that the offence was committed in "(he high ways of the United States, in the Indian country west ?f the Mississippi, and north of the north line of lands assigned to the Osage tribe of Indians"?it being no where alleged that the offence was committed "at the district of Missouri." The District Attorney "admitted the materiality of the absence of felonious intent; and declared it to be a clerical error. The other point he refused to yield, declaring the indictment to be good at common law, but at the suggestion of the Court, who declinced deciding the point, a new grand jury wa8 empannelled, from a portion of the previous jury, and new indictments found in all the cases, charging the felonious intent on the part of Shafer, and locating the offence of the marauders " in the Indian country, west of the.'Mississippi, north of the north line of land assigned to the Osages, and ufon the land without the jurisdiction of any particular State, the United States?to wit, at the district aforesaid." Shafer employed W. M. Campbell, Esq , of St. Charles, and Gen. A. 1. Doniphan, of Liberty, as his counsel, and gave bail in the sum of two thousand dollars for his appearance at the April term, in St. Louis, and was discharged. The point 10 which we have referred was raised by the grand jury, in the settlement of their accounts. After they were discharged on the first jury, thry procured their certificates and were paid the usual per diem and mileage. In the second case, they were summoned and sworn as an entire new jury, particularly and specially charged by the Court ub a new jury, heard the evidence anew, and returned new indictments. To test the question, one account was made out, charging mileage in the second case, and presented to the Court for allowance. It was referred, in the usual form, to the District Attorney, who reported in favor of the per diem, but against the mileage. After argument, this report was sustained by the Judge, in a lengthy opinion, the substance of which was that the five cents per mile, which the government pays a witness or juror, for travelling from the " place of his abode," was intended aa a compensation " for travel," and not to be otherwise charged. For the day charged in the last account, the jurors had been previously paid, on the former jury, and on their part it was contended that the per diem provi- I sion should be construed aa closely as the mileage? that the per diem being allowed, the mileage should follow?that the government was compelled to have anew jury, and that they were in fact a cheaper jury than could be otherwise obtained, and by their direction the account will be forwarded for the decision of the Secretary of the Treasury. The famous constructive journey from Ghent to St. Petersburg, and the constant practice of m:m; bers of the United States Senate, was freely re. (erred to, with no other success than to determine the jurors to have it decided whether a farmer in 1 Missouri is equivalent, on a question of principles, to a Senator in Washington. When Mr. Van Buren's term of office expired, on the night of the 3d of March, 1S40, the Senate sat to the last moment of the waning night, but they were assembled again in twelve hours, to act on the appointments of General Harrison, and in those twelve hours, which many Senators devoted to rest, some of them obtained several thousand dellars for constructive travelling to their homes and back. How the principle here acted on can vary from that on which the jurors in Missouri ! claimed to be paid, we are at a lose to discover; btit the nation will gain if the refusal to pay the jurors i should lead to the disavowal at the seat of governi ment of charges where travelling has not been actually performed. J Theatrical.?The Chatham not only deserves success, but obtains it. Hitherto the manager's heart has been gladdened by the patronising approval of the public, and his exertions have been redoubled to retain the popularity which he has fatamed. To night "The Hunchback" and the "Rebel Chief," are the prominent features of the entertainment, and the cant of the characters is the best that could be made. Jamison is an established favorite, andhegives promise of future distinction; Mr. Hield has been long before the public as a member of the Park and other companies, but we regret to see him deteriorating : his chief aim and ambition appears now to be to "split the ears of the groundlings" and obtain a "hi, hi, hi!" from the boys of the pit. This is unworthy of him, for he ia capable of better things, and is unjust to the manager, whose efforts to make hia theatre attractive to the judicious and intelligent should not be thwarted by an actor. In the play of Luke, |the Laborer, Mr. Hield frequently insulted the discreeter portion of the audience by certain clap-trap gagg?ry about Yankee tars and hail Columbia,while the characters were all of another nation, and the 1 scenes laid in a foreign land. This should be amend* ! rd. Mrs. George Jones has been recently doing 1 business suited to her power*, and has established 1 herself as an especial faiorite. Other actors are very respectable. We hear that engagements are ' entered into with Jim Crow Rice and Mr. Booth, e for an early period. Ilice, whether on or off the stage, is deservedly u favorite, and his engagement will be both flattering and profitable. 1 Dibaorkkable, very!?The weather yesterday We had nothing but rains. Father Webb's Hrll|twu Locofocolara? Pntfjr Cathollrlun-Episcopalian ProtesItntlim. Gross personalities, vulgar elandet, and tiendlike passions,are too often the characteristics of religious controversies. The most horrid barbarities have been frequently committed ia the name of the Lord, ?nd we n?pear to have gone round the circle and come back to the point at which the same sceaes must be re-enacted Father Webb, the "defender of the Faith," mas malignant as was John Calvin when he sent Servetus to martyrdom, and if Bishop Onderdonk escapes the iaggot, it is for the more mPrrifnl flnvinir hIivh uiliiflh hp tn ?t ihrnnffh lh<" columns of the Courier <fc Enquirer. Webb, however, like all new converts, is zealous without knowledge. His zeal puts him into a foam which out-does Phalon's Tuberose Shaving Cream, and his writings prove most satisfactorily that Boz, by the aid of La Roy Sunderland's Pathetism, which throws people into trances and gives them vitions of things of both worlds, of the past, and the present, and the future, saw the routs? Webb would take in thiscontroversy,ar.tlhciice the rowdy journalism which he foreshadowed. Suddenly inflamed as his mind has become, wiih z^al for tilings holy, he yet requires purging of th^ old leuv.n which leavened his whole lump. The earn? passions govern him as when he packed the pit of ihe Park Theatre to drive away a singer who would not submit to the dictation of Webb's crcntures, and Bishop Onderdonk's character must be pelted vim the mud of Webb's slanderous abuse, as un*panngly thrown as it ever was on a political opponent. There is much needful penance to be undergone yet ere Webb will be a completely changed man One material error, however, into which he falls is, the introduction ot political tactic* and political theories, into church government?a species of locofoco rowdyism which packs ward meetings and kicks out an honest opponent to accomplish its purpose. We re-copy the concluding paragraph from his instructive article which we published yesterday, because it bears se forcibly on this point:? Now,however, that Puseyism ha* thrown oil' its mask, and stands before the world in all its naked deformity, the laity owe a duty to them'elvea and the church which they mav not neglect. In the coming rlections every man who is a candidate for vestryman, must open'y avow hi* opinions in advance; ani' the Trotestant Episcopalians must one aid all, learlessly diachaige their duty. Every vestry in the diocese will then be anti.Pusevite; and. wry rector who countenances or sustains the Birliop in this daring act of usurpation, must be made to feel that the laity are not to he tiifled with. Thus an.) thu> only, fan this dangerous heresy benipped in the In;.). and although it may leave us a church withou priests. P:t?e>i m will find i':.eli wi'.ha Duhip and clergy without t laity.

The foundation ol the church lies not in ntiuV agreement, hut in God's requirement. Nor does mi:i't association in the church r. 1 ?t? to him us a being having rights to ba secured or prerogatives to urrender, nor an one who haa a high, honoraMe, and pure in rat lo bring to bear upon the happiness and w < e of th<> community to which he belong*. 1 hech'iir h i<> uppoiii'ed for man as a being weighed doun with ltaiiiy and corruption, and by his sinfulness shu' out rniitl.e mere) and exposed tathe Just anger of He God- H It Ml a M> ciety formed by him far the pur|>o*.' cf -utcei.tmt af and calling into exercise his powers ?' n I i,ov rnntf n<, and of promoting his own and others' welnra and interests.

Its powers and pr rogatives come directly from heaven- Its human ?eei >t, in the accomplishment ot the holy and blesst-dendsi f its institution, have their powers and prerogatives from God, and not from men. Inaeed, as if to illustrate this holy and heavenly character of the church, the appointment of such agents was not only independent of the church, but anterior to its full Christian organization. The mi.nstry wa< appointedt o gather,organise instruct and guide the church, not the church established with power to employ the ministry. The primary powers of the church, then, are not diffusive, but concentrated. They are not in the members, but the head. They are committed by the head to the ministry ia A?i>)rnt i? nil man diligently reading holy scriptures and oncient authors, and thence, collecting, from its practical development, the great principles destined to be incorporated into the lull ecclesiastical organization, divine (action is piven to qualifications in administering the polity of the church, which clearly recognise therein an efficient interest (riven to the subordinate pestoral associates of the chief ministers ot Christ's flock, and to the members generally of that holy b"dy.

A very valuable consequence of thia may, by the divine blessing, be expected to be, my beloved brethren of the clergy anrt laity, the constant realizing by cach of u?, in his proper sphere, of the solemn truth that when we engage in the service of the church of God, we are employed in an agency, not tn carry out a human scheme of benevolence or usefulness, not to promote an end deriving value from its popularity or acceptableoesa with men, not to devise ana execute the most ingenius, improved or ready modes of showing results, but an agency?with reverenco and godly fear be it undertaken?in the accomplishment, by the mighty power of the Holy Ohost, of the exceeding great and precious object whereby God, in the exercise of in?tt' ble meiij , m in Christ Jesus, reconciling the world him. 1'itss we then everto our hearts the obvious trnf!i,that th-n ?iily can we expect to be enlightened unJ iffi ient ugi-ntx in this work, when our hearts sre controlled, < ur characters formed, and our lives preserved, by thai jrn? priunple of evangelical faith which only gives consistency, and in which only we can expect efficiency, in vrhativerwe may do in thecauseof thechurch. But my principal object in this course of remark, wa* to show its beariug on the question of our refpouailiitity as ministers and members ol the church, in what we do simpij as such.

I can sie no principle on which this can he Justly maintained- How is it possible for a body of men held together by nocommon principles of religion, to Judge of religious mattera'1Taking tbe gospel for our guide, we must see in tlic church and the world essentially antagonistic bodies? Thechurch was formed,not to co-operate with the world, but to oppose it?to attack the wicked principle* and practices to which it is in bondage, and to come to no terms with it on any other principles than its entire surrendry ef its opposition to the pure and holy spirit of the gospel, and its submission to the rule which Christ through His Church, would establish over it for ita good. Alas ! brethren, I need not ask you whether the world if now such as to afford any confidence of its Judging aright in matters pertaining to the kingdom of God. No, sure ly ; and let me affectionately say to both the clergy and laity, ever conscientiously acting upon the principle myself, that for what wa do in our several departments of service to the church, we owe no responsibility t? the world; in other words, to the public. From the world we have derived no power. We hold no commission fr^m it. Let us ever by the grace of God, be careful that in our intercourse with it, we adorn the doctrine of God our Ravior in all things; and then go forward in enr Master's work, indifferent, save for its own sake, whether the world is pleased or offended, and indeed looking for tie ill will and oppoaitien from it which that Mu'te. and >'is divine word have nrenared us to exnrrt. How palpable now appears the ignorance of Father Webb, and how justiy dors he appear entitled to the drAgnation o'" R?ligiou? Lncofnco. The Bisbo) himself used thin stronger langusgr, " that carnal mind which in radically incapable of spiriti ai discernment." A,so, on the same puhj.-ct he spoke nl " the it?.<].) and j>*st? of unrenewed hearts, the insolence of the ignorant, and the bla^ and imj w tn so! the profane."

The closing language of the ilishopinay a,>pear harsh, but in such a caute tenderness ia a crime, and we hope, as Webb has m, roveJ hiam.irals, and entered upon a career ot r?!uion ai d religious controversy, that he will amend hi* intellect also.

To one who hasbeen for threo score years in tne service of his country, and who has honestly striven to contribute his mite to her prosperity, nothing can give so much delight as to be aflorded an opportunity to witnoss the success ot her people, whether on the ocean or in the cultivation of the soil. For the little I may have done in the stations which I have been called upon to fill, I am more than repaid by the thanks that are tendered me ; by these spontaneous offerings of gratitude that are proffered to me?it is more than I could expect. I am aware that in a great measure I am indebted to the extraordinary demonstrations of regard manifested towards me during the journey to which 1 ha ve referred, and no doubt also for a measure of that exhibi. ted on the present occasion, to those efforts which I have been enabled to make in behalf of the liberties of my country?in the honest teelingn of my heart I say the libertiea of my country?in the course I have pursued on the right of speech and of petition. These supplementary services ot my life were utterly unexpected to me; 1 never could have anticipated that I should be called upon to defend eur liberties from assaults coming from within, assaults made by our own hands. Early in life it was my lot to serve the country in foreign lands?to lend my aid in resisting foreign aggression; but I never could have anticipated that a blow threatening the liberties of the country, was impending over us at the hands 31 the piotde themselves.

Ukii'RRKCTioif Bodiki.?two catks were discovered yesterday, on board of the steamboat North America, at the foat of Courtlandt street, which, from appearance, led to suspicion that they contained something besides "crockery ware," with which they were marked. Officer Cockefair bclnij sent for, after examination, concluded they contained dead bodies, and had them token on shore and opened, when such was found to be the result. One contained an elderly male person and a female, packed iu salt, and the ether a male, alto pickled in the same manner. They were directed to " A- W. Hyde, Whitehall, N. Y ?per Baker's Troy Line," and no doubt were thus put up asBubject* for dissection. The ooroner held inquest* on the bodies, and ordered them to be buried in Tetter's Field, from whence it is very probable they were obtained by body snatchers. One of them has been rorognized as a Black well's Island convict, that had been buried in Pottpr'a Field. Can the keeper of the Field throw any light on this subject ?

He waa immediately conveyed to the City Hospital, where he died in a few bourn afterwards. An inquest was held by the coroner?verdict accidental death. Most Extraordinary Suicidk.?We never read any thing more extraordinary than the following. It appears almost too strange to be true, and yet " truth is strange, stranger than fiction ?"? The Lebanon (Ohio) Star says, the. body of a young man by the name of David T. Gerard, before mentioned, was found on Thursday morning, 3llfc?|?r*liut'd i?y uir urutv n? a ucc auuui a nine iruui the Blue Ball, and near the western border *f Warren countv. An inquest was held over his body, and we learn from the c?roner that the jury brought in a verdict of self murder. Amongst his papers was found a will, bequeathing his property to his mother, who lives somewhere in Indiana. He was worth in money, judgments, du? bills, and personal property, from fifteen to eighteen hundred dollars, of which $789 50 are on drposite in the Lafayette Bank in Cincinnati, and $105 15 were found in his trunk. He was about 35 years of age, of good moral character, and a good school teacher, in which profession he had been for several years employed. Though not considered deranged, he was eccentric in hisconduct, and of a misanthropic temperament. The following papers found in his hat and trunk, were handed to us by the coroner. No doubt they are genuine Wednesday, 13th, 1843. " I wish to be buried in a plain, cheap manner, in some retired and lonely spot I wish my grave to be left level aud not a stone raised to tell where 1 lie; and if 1 have any friend left, I want him next spring to go and sod my grave over perfectly level and s:::ooth, so that the place may be lost and forgotten as soon as possible. " I wish Mr J. Patterson to take my saddlebags key, and go to Aaron Russell's, and in the presence of him and John Lummis open said bags; examine the contents; read rr.y will to them; and then leave the key and all with ihem. 1 want my yellow trunk opened; the money in it to be paid out for my funeral expenses, and the balance to be paid by my executore. %" To stop the mouths of all liars and fools, I do hereby certify that my death is brought about by my own cool and deliberate act. I intend swallowing half a pint of braudy, 15 grains of morphine, and sn ounce of laudanum. I shall only use the rope for fear I vomit, and thus defeat my object, for 1 am resolved to go. I am weary of the world. It is not the place for an honest man. I want no preaching over me, for /ear they will lie about me. " The letters found in my trunk 1 wish handed to the individuals to whem they are directed?those in my saddlebags I want mailed and postage paid ae anon as poewible. "This is a gloomy day, to me at least. That glorious sun which once shone so brightly on (what appeared to me,) this fair world of ours, will rise no more on me. If it did, it would appear shorn of all its splendor. F?r many days all nature seemed to languish. In vain have the flowers spread their gaudy foliage, nil nature's smiles are frowns to him who has a btok^n heart. I have struggled on through adverse fortune from boyhood t? the present hour, till I am weary of the warfare. I leave the world without a decided opinion on any thing. The whole concern is a mystery I cannot comprehend. It is a serious matter to think of, dropping suddenly out of existence and going, you know not wher*1. It is a leap in the dark; but I have no relatives, and very few friends, here to grieve after me. A few years at most, and I will be forgotten. "iMy life, if compared with the mass, would be about a medium one, or perhaps a little above. I have lived an honest and tolerably moral life. I have often been the victim of other people's wickedness. and thev have generally had the cunning and address to put all the blame on me?and often I have home it with calmness and resignation, and never tried to justify myself. For " vengeance is mine, and 1 will repay, saith the Lord." I have often been more the injured than the injurer. As 1 am going, I could easily take Rignal vengeance on many of my enemies, but I scorn to do it. Thry are beneath my notice. I am proud even in death. I shall soon be far beyond the reach of their enmity. They may giatify their malignant dispositions by blackening and aspersing my character; but it will not hurt me Death is to me like starting on a long journey; I feel sorry to part from old acquaintances and familiar objects, but it has lost all ifB terrors The subject is ever present to my mind to-day. I can think of|nothing else?and why need II?Every reflecting person must know that a man has a gloomy prospect in the futuie that dejiberately sets about destroying himself?such is mine.

Not a ware of pleasure rolls Across my pf aceful breast. "I bid a long and final farewell to all my friends, and most cheerfully pardon and forgive all my enemies. "These are the last lines I shall ever write. J shall soon commence swallowing the soul-benumbing drug. I shall make my wor.'i secure. "David T. Gerard. "A slight tremor affects my nerves.

Of?- A CARD?TO PUBLILHERS OF NEWSPAPERS.?We havo no idea of attempting to follow the sever?l worthless renegades who mako libellous attacks upon us, and have no character or responsibly to answer for them.

We shall after this lair an I open notico, commence suits and complaints against any pub'ishar* who admits libellous matter against us, whether it is ati advertisement or not. Henry Dalley, a foreign gentleman, who has been siace March last, under injunction, from the Caurt of Chancery, of this State, directed to him, and all his agents and aids, forbidding him under penalty often thousand dollars, from issuing or putting forth in any way, an article called " Dalley's Pain Extractor," or any thing like it, which he has grossly violated, as well as bis contract with us, and has even inserted some false and scurrilous advertisement against us. He is now under notice of motion for attachment against his person for such violation, and we intend to teach this Englishman, that he must respect his contract and the laws of our country. We expended over five thousand dollars to get this article into notice, and do not intend he or bis aids shall rob us of our rights, or vilify us with impunity. We have no doubt the press will cheerfully do us justice, and exclude any libellous matter?now it is thus called to their attention.

The foreign exchange market seems to have touched its highest points,.from the indications atforded by .the transitions lor the packet yesterday. They are falling at all points?New Orleans Charleston, Baltimore, and this city. At Baltimore they wara dull on Friday at SJaU v, i'li right checks on this city at par. Sonic Maryland State coupons sold as followsviz. those oi 1 II and :?42 a! 91 cents, and those of 1848 at 83 cents. The p?si<ion of th* mon^y market relative to the continued abundiiiCt of money, sud it- l, tKiH'.ce vfn the values of stock, i? uiatur r>f i in'*' e?i ut this moment. There seems to be two paili*:. foinvni? iu rrl itiun la ihe matter; one emanating from thut>evp' iHtu.g icr a fall in stock, contend that money will soon iucreuse iu value, and that consequently .banks will withdraw their loans upon stock*, causing a great fall in the latter, which are assumed to be too high. The other party conteuds that the plenteousness of money must continue for a long time to come, and that in no event can capital be withdrawn from stocks to an extent which will cause a fall, as the prices are not yet so high as they should be. It seems to be the case that both parties lose sight of the lacts of the case, and do not embrace in their views the whole position of affairs. The banks are not the cause of the cheapness of money nor dees the price ot money depend upon their will. They are only the instruments by which the accumulations of money, much or little, are loaned out; and the [price depends upon the proportion of the whole quantity to be loaned to the demand The object of the banks is always to get as much as they can, yet one of the Wall street papers- gravely makes the following announcement This, as our readers are aware, has in some cases been as low as three per cent, though the majority of the loans by the banks, for the last three or four months, have been made at from three and a half to four per cent The latter is the general rate now charged, and tome symptoms are evinced of a dispotilion to advance to the ordinary i ate* upon the firtt favorable opportunity. The purport of this is, that the hanks have had heretolore no disposition to get more for their money, but have just concluded that it will be best to gut more as soon as they can. This is no doubt the case, and has been fortho last 20 years, but when will they be able to get more r All (he indications of trade are, that lor the neit year thoy will not get 10 much. A great mistake prevails in relation to the value ofstocks, and the agency which the banks have had in producing the riae which ha? tak'-n placc since January- The riae in stocks anl the fall in the value of money, have both gro*n out of the same cause, viz. an i acreased abundance of the latter, consequent upon causes which have been operating all over the commercial world. The rato of interest in London fell in 18 months from 6 to 1? per ccnt per annumIn this city it fell from 8 per cent in August, 1842, to 3 percent in 1843. Yet stocks have notiisen in anything like the same proportion, nor are they now so high at they have been in usual yean. For instance, New Yark 5 per cent storks in this market, sell at HflilOO.
