THE NEW YORK HERALD ?ol. il? No. !I45?WHolo No. 4117. NEW YORK, TUESDAY MORNING, SEPTEMBER 16, 1845. Official front (he Scat of War?Naval and Military Movcinenta. U- S. Sair Saratoga, Pknsacols, Sept. 6, 1H46. Cundition oj the Ship?The Sick Lilt.?National Vttttln in Tort. I nave no doubt you would like to bear from us here. The reason that I did not address you before was in con sequence that we expected daily to sail from here for itio de Janeiro, but up to tbis time there is no certainty whether we will remain here on this cursed station or not. If the department determines on keeping this ship on tiiis station, something must be speedily done to re lievo her ol her liltliy condition. While she was on the < oast of Africa, her hold became so very dirty, that the greater part of the filth settled in between her timbers and ceiling, so there is no possible way ol cleansing her effectually but by putting her in a dry dock, taking out her garboard streak, and fill the dock with water, and then pump the dock out, scrub the ship with good hickory brooms inside; at the same time, with a good engine, wash her between each timber, through the uir streak, so the dirt would go out the garboard streak ; then, snd not till then, will she tie clean and fit to send to a climate like this it's God's mercy that we aie all spared at this time, with the dirty filth and bilge water from tho hold. A11 the paint-work is as black as ink, and at night, when it rains, they clap grating - and tarpaulins over the batches , and so strong and suffocating is the stench below with the heat, thai the men prefer going on deck and standing in the rain and get wet, though nothing is moro unhealthy. Our Doctor appears to be so very solicitous about the men's health that he will not allow the berth deck to be cleaned, and it has uot been holystoned but three times in five mouths. Nearly every day it has a pro profusion of dirt and white wash- with the wet and dirt ami other filth upon it, y on could plant potatoes. This has every other appearnnee to me than health, or the means to preserve health ; however, he is the sou of the Emerald Isle. If something is not done pretty soon, between tho rugiug of the bilge water and tbe conflicting opinions of the oncers what should be donn and what ought not to be done, we shall all die with the yellow fever. I would give fifty dollars lor the Secretary of the Navy to pass one night on board, and see if he would allow the com manders ol Navy V'ards to turn ships oil'their hauds in a lip condition to kill people in a sickly climate. If I had my way with tho commander of the Norfolk Yard, and those concerned in cleaning her, 1 would keep them three months in tho main hold for the benefit of their health, and see how they would liko it. Your paper is much desired on board this ship, and one of the officers, when we were here before, went to the 1 Postmaster at this place, (Hanson Kelly) and wanted to I send tlio subscription to your paper for tw o years, and he would not receive it, hecauso it would give him a little 1 trouble in writing to tbe Postmastei in New York to pay you two years subscription, the money having heenlelt j with him. 1 wish you would score those gentlemen who are so illiberal. I have no list of deaths to send you, but am a'raid it will not be long before you will have to record the sad news i from tins ship, if sums speedy remedy is not saon pre scribed. N. 15 ?Since writing the above, we have several on the sick list. The Captain is very unwell, and Lieut. Hun ter so sick as to be seut to the hospital. The following vessels are in portFrigate Potomac, steam frigate Mis sissippi, sloops St. Mary, Saratoga and Falmouth, steamer 1'riucetoii, and brig Somers. [From the Washington Union, Sept. 13. Information from Genoral Taylor's head quartets at Corpus Cbristi, has been received as late as to tho 30th of August. Since his last despatch, seven companies of the 7th regiment of infantry nave arrived at his camp. The General speaks in commendatory terms of the bat talion of artillery from New Orleans, underthecom Band of Major Gaily. The gallant Texians arc determined to do their duty in defence of their State. President Jones has notified General Taylor that he has taken preparatory steps to organize one thousand men for service, if necessary. General Taylor has communicated to General Gairfes his wisli not to have any more militia force sent from New Orleans to him, not apprehending that there will be any occasion for their services. He states that there is no news from Rio Grande. Some idle rumors am oc casienally brought in from that quarter, hut the accurate information he possesses so entirely discredits them, that he does not think thorn even entitled to repetition. [From the Cleveland Herald, Sept. 11.] Arrived this morning from Detroit and tiie Upper Lakes, the 2nd Battalion of the 0th Regiment of Milan try, en route for Texas ; a companies under the command ol Lieut Col. Mcintosh. The oflicets of this i i command arc as loilows : Col. Mcintosh; Cupts. Scott, Morrill and Chapman; 1st Lieuts Buggies, Root, Stevenson and Whitall; Jnd Lieuts Brooke, Norvell, Geisse, Waiting, Howe and Smith. They left to-doy in canal boats for Portsmouth, and will proceed thence via New Orleans to Corpus Christ!. Tho Battalion numbers about 350 men and a liner specimen of troops probably does not belong to the Army. They have been stationed lor years in the healthy North West, and are robust, athletic, and ready and willing for hard service. United States frigate Constitution, Captain Percival, touched at Borneo I'roper, April !?, bound to China. Brig Baiubridge was at Bahia July 37, and expected to tail in a few days for Rio Janeiro. The following is a list of her officers: Lieut. Commanding, Lawrence Pen iagton, Esq ; Acting Master, C. Manigault Morris; Pass ed Assistant Surgeon, J. J. Brownlce; Purser, George H. White; Captain's Clerk, Thomas II. Steneall; Midship man, George II. Bier; Master's Mate, J. Thomas Power; Boatswain, John Young; Gunner, Francis Dawson; Car penter, Edward A- Babbitt. Officers and crew all weU. [From the Charlestown (Mass ) Aurora, Sept. 13 ] The work on the frigate United states, at the Navy Yard nere, is progressing rapidly, and she will lie ready for her officers and crew in three or four weeks. She will not be repaired very thoroughly, the order being to re pair and fit her simiily for a year's cruise She is found to bo more decayed than was expected. The planks on the starboard fide from the copper streak up to the wales proved so defective that it has been deemed necessary to take most of them out and replace them by others. The larboard side is sounder. Tho brig Boxer was reported ready for her officers and crew, several days since, but has not yet gone into commission. She is rigged, newly painted, aud part of her stores uio on beard. Commodore Downes (in virtue of u subsequent order from tire Secretary of the Navy) is still commander alloat, and the Ohio'presenta tiie'singular incongruity of two Captains without a Midshipman. Wo understand that the < umberland, Commodore Smith, will return home from the Mediterranean, at the ?nd of the cruising season. The Plymouth, commander Henry, will probably go to Mahon to winter.

Deray, 'Jnd, a chief of Dry Brook, Ulster county, win committed on Wednes dny even'ng. fie was arrested at Sciencevillc, Oroeno county, liy Uriah Griffin, assisted by two other persona. When taken, ho was armed with a rifle, dirk and pistols. He confessed to having been at Stamford, armed and dis guised, last spring, when you will recollect, the rescue of th a prisoners here was contemplated?hut denied hav ing been disguised since. The Grand Jury came inte court this morning, having found sixty-six indictments against as many persons, for various offences committed prior to the murder of Steele. Klevon of theso indictments are lor robbory in the first degree, appearing disguised and armed and for riot at Middietown, last February, when Deputy Sheriff Pier son was set upon and robbed of his papers, &c. Three of the eleven (Darius ltobinson, ( has. J. Macumher and (ieo. Tompkins) are in custody, the latter a brother of Tompkins the constable and collector, who was sent to Sing Sing, lust April. The other eight not yet taken. The remaining titty-live indictments are for assembling disguised and armed, conspiracy and riot, at the Stewart sulu lust spring, in the town of Delhi. Of the fifty-five indicted for tins offence, the following ure in custody: ? John Whitsou, jr., John O. Lid die, And. I.iddle, Alex. Bcckwith, Jns. Iluruhart. John Gregory, Wm. Reside, Uhauncey P. Wolcott, Miles 11. Biamtde, Homer C. Uer- ' gin, Wm. Bryant, Win. Smith, and Aug. Kettle, jr. Of ' the residue of the fifty-five, I cannot give you tho names 1 until they are arrested. The Grand Jury will, by to-morrow, present indict- I meats against those concerned in tho murder of Steele. 1 Some oilier matters, not noticed by the former Grand Ju- l ry, may also be brought forward at this term. Indeed, i under the law aguinst appearing disguised, Kc , I think nil the onti-rent movements and outrages, are in a train of lull dovelopomont. There appears to be a disposition | among those implicated and in custody, to keep nothing back. Hour of the Sheriff's posse have just returned with 1 three prisoners?John ('rook, Peter F Kittle, and Oscar Sandford. Kittle and Crook aro residents of Dry Brook, Ulster county, Sandford resides in Middietown, in this county. Two of them were captured at Kingston, Ulster county, and the other somewhere on the river, muking their escape. A large meeting of the democratic electors of our county whs held on the Iflth instant, at the house of (J. H. F.dgerten. John II Giegory, Esq., of Colchester,was chairman, and Albert Edgeiton, of Delhi, secretary. It was resolved that tho county convention be held on tho 7th of October, and tho town committees were appointed to call meetings to appoint two delegates from cacti town to uttetid said convention. Kmipkmknt, Almost.?A man by the name of Hragg, who has a wife and three children supported by the town of China, and has lor the last six or seven mouths boarded with a Mr. Sliorev at Uiucluiiton's Cor ner, in this town, attempted to leave theso partis lust week, accompanied by Mr. Shorey's duughter. Hut tho steamboat not arriving nt her usual hour, gave Mr. S. un opportunity to get a precept into the hands of officer Say ward, who immediately arrested Bragg, and committed him to Wisc.asaet Jail, and returned the girl to her father. Hut alio says shu is most eighteen, and thon she will let tl.o old man know she will go whore she pleases. ?Tho mantun (fife.) /(riordrr. The Weather,?For twelve or fourteen days past we have hud rain almost incessantly. It commenc ed just us most of our farmers began their whent har vest; and we are sorry to say that a largo proportion of this iin] ortnnt crop, which promised so well two weeks since, is now either mined, or seiiously injured by the wet wonthcr. Scarcely an aero as been secured without having sprouted. This, with the injury to the potato ctop, will prove a serious loss to the townsliipa.? Hhrr hrookr liazettt, lit A insl.

Further from Brazil and Bi/enos Aykes ?The St. Joseph arrived yesterday from Kio. We have received the following letter by her. It contains further information from Buenos Ayres. Rio dk Jarkibo, July 28, 1845. Although I have no local news of interest to commu nicate, yet the late advices from (lie River Plate, are of the greatest importance, and I doubt not will ntoet with due respect and consideration, and lind a welcome space in your widely circulated sheet. A young friend writes me' from Montevideo under date of too 8th instant as fol lows "In politics all is mystery,though it appcnrs that some thing is going on with the mediators In Buenos Ayres. The Rio packet is delayed a week uwaiting the arrival of tho Cornus from Buenos Ayres, and from the delay in that place and the news we have thenco, ?ho would not he detained here so long without something important caused it. Rosas refused in toto to treat with the minis ters without they first admitted Ins right an a lice and in dependent government, to lay on the bluckade ol this port, which is said was not allowed, some say positively hy the French minister solely, while othors say by both Fi euch and Knglish ; and it was said that anothor period was given lum to reconsider the matter and not act has tily, hence the motiro of the delay aforementioned. It is generally thought here that he will give way, and { should such ho the result, it will lie his death warrant; ; while on the contrary, if war or hostilities lake place, he will still, in all probability, exist a short time. It is tho general opinion that the French end Knglish ministers are very firm, and bent on tho pacilication of this coun try, and not allow it to full Into the hands of Rosas or his partisans, hut to sustain, right or wrong, tho inde pendence and legality of this government and its acts. This is au opinion deduced from conversations with por sous of credit, knowledge and respectability, both here and at Buenos Ayres. In the meantime this government ' and tho worthy defenders of the city are struggling very hard for a daily existence, by begging and other lawful ! meusures; tlioy buy from hand to mouth, and jt cannot be doubted for a single moment but that they doservo great credit for their much to be wondered at perseve rance and determination. If anything was ever worthy a good result, this party certainly is of victory and free dom, and providence does appear to watch over them and all their undertakings ; for although poverty and inability hnvo stared them in the face for upwards of '29 months, yet they have never for one moment given way ' to despondency or disunity, and this too in the face of 1 having euemius in their own bosom who call themselves 1 neutrals and protecting only their subjects, though open ly acting us spies over the acts anl intentions of those ' who allow them the liberty of enjoying a good name with their own government."* "KHh July. ?I expected to have written you something decisive by this packet, particularly us she has been de layed a week for the arrival of despatches from Buonos Ayres: but lo! the anxiously looked for vessel arrives, niul brings nothing for the public?for tho plenipotentia ries she may, but nothing has leaked out as yet, nor are there any letters to any individual except of u very back ward date, and these are scarce?so you rco wo live on hope from day to-day and meet nothing but disappoint ments, but when the mystery does burst, we may look out for squalls, i am told that some three or four Knglish ' have beou killed near and in tho City of Buenos Ayres, ! as a sort of warning of what will happen if Mr. Ousoly persists in carrying out his prose at views." It was confidently reported the morning tho packet left the River Plate, that a steamer had arrived at Monte video from Buenos Ayres, bearing dispatches for the Britiah Charge d'Atfaires and French Admiral, commu nicating tiiat the Biitish and French Ministers had ad dressed a note to the Buenos Ayrean Government, de manding the immediate withdrawal of their forces from the Banda Oriental, and their squadron fiom the Monte videan waters, giving three (lays for a final answer; therefore should not the war be brought to a close, it must assume a very difleront character. Our next ad vices from that quarter must bring news of the partial settlement of this long standing and sanguinary quarrel, or a rupture between the Buenos Ayrean Government and England and France. Our import markets have recently assumed a rather discouraging aspect for all descriptions of American produce, principally owing to the late very heavy re ceipts of most articles of importation. Richmond dour is retailing very slowly at prices netting $6] a $7$; Dal- j timoro, $5J, but I doubt much whether a cargo of the 1 last description would realize over 14<;000 to nett $4 60. At Buenos Ayres, 27th uit., the article was quoted at 0 a 7 patacoons on board. At Montevideo, 9th lust, $12 a $14 currency, the former prico to nett $(!?! Spanish, stock 3,500 brls. At Rio Grande, 14th inst., Richmond ! flour was quoted 19j| a 20 ; Baltimore, 17j500; Pernain- j cuco, 5th inst., sales of Philadelphia extra had been made at 17]l; Trieste, SB8F', at 19 ]50M a 20 !, and at Bahia, 10th i inst, few transactions at 18 200 for Trieste, and 15|| for | Phil idelphin; prices of American domestics arc on tho 1 decline, and the markets very dull and heavy; Cotlee, superior, 3||200 a3f|300; good firsts, 3||a3||lt>9 and ordi- ; nary firsts, 2||800 a 2||960. Hides have been in demand, ; and may be quoted at 190 a 195 rs. for heavy, to cost on ( hoard, 10 47 a 10 78. and 200 a 210 rs. for light; on hoard, | 11 a 11 60 per lb. Kxchange on Kngland, 25d , with an upward tendency. Freights for tho United States are \ scarce, and shipping plontilul; the nominal rates are 70 j a 80c and 5 per bag tor the United States. \This remark alludes to tho Portuguese, Sardinian and Brazilian consuls ; and Portuguese and Brazilian naval ofHcers. Very Late From Jamaica.?The brig Orleans, Gapt. Baggatt, arrived last night from Kingston, Ja., with papers to the 2fith ult., inclusive. There appears to be very little news of impor tance. [From the Kingston Journal to Aug. 26.] The August holidays have passed oil' with great quiet ness and decorum. There has been less noise and re velling than we remember to have heard or seen before, and we trust it is to be regarded as a proof that the mass of our population aro acquiring a taste for more rational and intellectual enjoyments than those to which they have been accustomed to yield themselves up to at such seasons of relaxation and festivity. Wo hail these signs of improvement with pleasure, and hope to witness the gradual advance of our laboring population, both in the towns and in the country districts, in ull the ennobling habits of civilized and Christian litis. It is to be regret tod that Jamaica presents to the eye of tho Christian moralist little or no improvement in tliiR respect. Wo understand that General Herard, the Kx-Prosidont of Hayti, who recently roturned to this island from St. Thomas, again quitted yesterday for Santa Martha m the schooner La Granadiria. It is said that the Kx-Presi dont purposes to spend the remainder of his day s at Santa Martha. He has heen accompanied by his family. By avessel which arrived from Aux Cayes 011 Monday last, we regret to learn that the inhabitants of that place were under arms, awaiting the result of some factious propositions which had lieen forwarded to President Per rott for his acquiescence. It is also said that should his mscnt be withheld therefrom, tho partizans of the noto rious Accuou arc determined to proceed to hostilities against tho government, with the view of co polling < .'eneral Perrott to abdicate in favor of their rebel chief. The unsettled state of things in that ill-fated Republic, it is added, had so harrassed the mind of Prosident Perrott, as to render the state of his health very precarious. When the vessel left, serious fears wore entertained for Ids recovery. Conspiracy to lion.?The notorious JohnCheny, alias John vVella, was again before the Mayor on Saturday, on the charge of conspiring with others to rob a countryman out ol nent lour hundred dollars, on the evening before. Cheny is known to tho police of this city and of Now York, as an old offender against tho laws. Tho modtu operandi by which he effects his de signs, is as follows He has several females in his keep log, who arc sent out at night to perambulate tho fash ionable streets lor the purpose of enticing men to a house, which he occupies in the vicinity of Cherry and Sixth streets, where they aro soon relieved of any sur plus change they may have about thein, and who arc in duced to decamp rathor suddenly under the suspicion that "the husband liasjust arrived." The complainant in the present instance, who is n storekeeper from some ]> irt of the interior, ami, of course, unused to tbo gross deceptions ot the city, was so nicely operated upon that he did not discover his lots till he got again into ( hesnut street, where ha mot onothor female, to whom, in con lersation, he mentioned the circumstances of his adven ture. Sho being one of the "knowing ones," suggested t) him that he had been robbed, which, upon inspection, i proved to he the case. Forty dollars being lelt in tho 1 j ockot-hook out of 400. Cheny was arrested upon this i nformation, hut the female could not be found. This 1 same person was in tho hands of the police a short time ago on the same charge, 11111I all hut thirty dollars of the 1 n.oney stolon returned, on condition that tho prosecutor would not appear. Tho police of course got paid for their troublo. Under the present police system, there is actually a premium for robbory. If a man is robbed and lie is able to identity the rogue who committed the ret, then, by consulting with the police, he may, if as- 1 Hirance be given that lie will not prosecute, recover a ; ortion of his money ; but if he has 110 positive proof, men he may rely upon not receiving a copper, 110 matter what may have been the extent of Bis loss 'J'licso bar cams aie always made by the police officers ; for so tin- 1 ly aro they and the thieves pledged to each other, that ell such business must he conductod by them. In the j resent case, the arrest was made by a bungling watch ian, and the money will ho recovoreil; such is tho gen 1 ral belief. A change in the city government was never > 1.1010 needod than nt tho present time; if for no other ) urpose than to break up tho present corrupt police 1 ' system .-Phil. Paper. Alarmingly Mysterious?On Saturday morn I mg about two o'clock, ua Messrs Henry J. Fisher I nd Jeromo T. White, two of the proprietors of tho I l>ailu 1 Sim, Philadelphia, were passing by Williams' ? court, in Washington street, they noticed that they were 1 followed by two very tall men. for a moment they ; lulled, and the tallest of the strangers, who was armed with a large butcher knife, winch he held down by his ? ido, advanced towards thorn, but at the same instant, a 1 watchmen came in sight o> the other side of the street, ? nd hailing him, seid?" You have been loafing round 1 here two or three hours. What do you want? If you I don't be oft home, I'll put you in tho wotch-house " 1 Tho fellow muttered something in reply to thi# chal lenge, and tlion leisurely walkednway with his comrade. (ItJ- The ncarcity of corn in the interior of 8. Car olina and Georgia, by the reason of the drought, has induced the Charleston Railroad Company, and the Cen tral Railroad Company, to reduce the tates of freight on ?nat article -the former from lft to ft cents, and the latter II out 13 ton This is done with the expectation that 1 supplies will come from New Orleaaa. Green's Confessions The Troy Budget of Sat urday, givea an inkling of the purport of Green's coiilensionn to Messrs. Van Klecck and Uuldwin?which, by tho way, it is proper to say, have not been made pub lic, either iu full, or to any extent before?the affair got up hero being a romance. ' The only point of importance relutea to the motive or : the instigating causes to the commit.: ion of the murder. I The confession, it appear*, entirely exonerate* the moth cr, and indeed every body but himself?the first circum stance which led him to think of it being a jocose re mark made by one of the sleighing party, upon which he put a serious and a wrong construction being an inti I mutioii as tounothor union, in case he became u widow or?a suggestion, it seems, which took such strong hold : at his nund, that it left no room for remorse or misgiv , i?B [From the Troy Iludget, Sept. 13.] Tho confession of Henry G. Green, as was announced by the Ilev. Mr. Van Kleeck at the time of the execution, wns made to the Kev. Mr Baldwin and himself. It was said by the reverend gentleman first named, Green made this confession " fully, freely aud frankly." In regard to this matter tho public very uuturally, as well as very properly, foel an intense interest. In this confession, Green not only acknowledges his guilt, and the justice : of the sentence he has suffered, hut he divulges matters : of thrilling interest, which have not yet appeared before the public eye. He acknowledges the motive which I prompted him to commit the act. lie states the circum stance which first led him to tho thought of murder.? Hero wc would state that tho conjecturos that arc gene I rally formed upon tiiis point are wrong. They have al ready harrowed up the feelings of one entirely innocent ?whoso acts either prior or subsequent to his marriage, according to Green's most solemn asseverations, hnd no influence whatever upon him. W'e rejoice at this disclo sure, for the sake of one who deserves the deepest sym pathy of the community, and who has already suffered, and still continues to sutler the keenest anguish ? Green states the feelings lie entertained towards bis wife before, as well as after his marriage, and up to the period of the circumstance above alluded to which led him to first think of doing the terrible deed?also his feelings after that circumstance, ami during the awful period of her sickness. We are glad to say, that he does full justice to the memory of the poor woman who was sent by his act into eternity, lie states what lie administered to his wife besides arsenic?and whon, and under what circumstances ho procured the arsenic, lie states events that took place during that fatal sleigh ride to Hoosic. He states when he had the first letTiugs of remorse for his crime. But to the corrections: Green states that his first thought of murder was du ring tho Hoosic sleigh ride, and that the circumstance which gave rise to that thought was something said to him by a girl on that occasion. Ho declines mentioning the nanio of the individual, but in the most unequivocal manner, exculpates her from all blame. What she said to him was said iu a jocose manner, upon which he put altogether n wrong construction, lloro then wo havo the motive which actuated him. From the moment this motive aei/.od upon him, he lost sight of every thing but tho one fell purpose of attaining, through the dcuth of his wife, tho hand of the young lady in question.? He was fully persuaded in his own mind that she would have married him in the event of his becoming a widow er. He says that this thought took such perfect posses sion of his mind, that it entirely precluded all feelings of remorse while he was performing tho deed. The thought ol detection never for once was entertained by him, for the reason, he says, that ho did not know tho i stomach could be analyzed. The first feeling of remorse that he had, was when his wife refused to take medicine ; at his hands. Thus it will he seen, that out of the cir cumstance of "something said to him by a girl," during ttie Hoosic sleigh ride, grew tho motive which prompt ed him to the thought of murder. The first that Green administered to his wile was two t opium pills. This is entirely a new was not disclosed in the testimony. It will he remem i bored that he went to Dr. Hull after pills to give his wife?that he procured pills from Dr. Hull?and be says | that instead of giving her these pills, he gave her two opium pills?that those pills contained no arsenic?that in consequence of their being too largo a dose to accom plish the fell purpose ho had in viow, vomiting was pro duced, and they were thrown off the stomach. It was after this that ho administered arsenic. | And here is a new and interesting point. It has been generally supposed that he procurod the paper of arse nic on the Sunday Daniel K. Dannisonfurnished him with the key to tho store, where ho said he wanted to get some outs for his horse. This is a mistake. Green says tie got the ursenic at a time when the store was open? that at thiR time there were several people in the store? and that he slily, aud unperceived by any one. put his hand into the jar, and took one paper of ursenic. These corrections embrace the new points in Green's confession. The other points are contained in the trial, as published in this paper, with which tho public are familiar.

Allow me, through your valuable journal, to notice that beautiful place on Long Island Sound called Eaton's Neck, ubout forty-five miles from this city, whereon stands the Light-House, known as "Hunt ington Light," which is kept, in unsurpassing bril lancy by our worthy friend Capt. Benj. Downing, than whom a more efficient selection could not be made. In the summer of '44 I, had frequent occasions to pass the Sound, and being generally on board of some one of the packet sloops that coast along the Island, the time at which we passed this Lighthouse was unavoidably some of the dead hours of night, when said light always shone with splendor, equal indeed, if not superior to any other on either shore from Plum Island to Sand's Point. In the month of August last past, with my friend Dr. B , 1 spent a few days ul this place, (Eaton's Neck,) and must say that I never was better pleased with any coun.ry place I ever visited. There is plenty of good fish ing, u splendid beach for sea bathing, a line chance for sailing, an invigorating sea brce/.e continually playing around, and above all the magnificent view presented on the Sound on either side, and as far as the eye can reach, by innumerable snow white sails jiassing to and fro upon this mighty nrm of the ocean, together with the beautiful appearance of every surrounding object, while the sun is making Ilia golden set beyond the shores of Connecticut, makes this a desirable spot tor any of Mr. Down ing's friends who may wish to spend n few weeks in a pleasant and healthy situation.

We can con scientiously docliiro that the "Kailway Travelling Com pHiiion" should be in thn pocket of every gentleman who is in the habit of going on the railroad, ft should he sold at erery station. -I'unck.

Tin: 1 { Corpus Cm:.?At the appointed hour yesterday, the lion. John Qreenwood rendered hia deci sion on the motion made by Alexander Campbell, Ksq., for the discharge ot Mary Ann Coyle, who had been committed by Air. Garrison, a Justice of the Peuce, to 10 days' imprisonment in the county, as a vagrant, on a charge prelerred against her by Mr. B. M. Stillwell, of Brooklyn. The motion was opposed by J. H. Ilolfe, Esq., (the gentlemanly and accomplished associate and part ner of the District Attorney) and the proceedings were conducted with much ability on both sides. Judge Greenwood decided that the conviction of Miss Coy le was technically illegal, inasmuch as she had not com mitted any Ret which had been defined by the Revised Statues to be of a vagrant character. Under these cir cumstances, she was discharged from custody, to the manliest gratification not only oftiie relatives und friends who were with her. but also of many other persons who were present. There is a sequel yet to be disclosed in refe rence to this affair, which, wo regret to state, will neces sarily involve the reputation and standing in society of | three or four persons heretofore deemed worthy and re spectable.

At a coroner's inquest held in Kings county, but u tew miles Irom the city ol Brooklyn, a few days ago, eight out of fourteen jurors made the confession that they could not sign their names. It may well lie inquired oi those who are so zealous in seeking to improve tiie moral and mental condition of the ( 'hick saws, Cherokces, and other tribes still less civilized, why more attention is not paid to the intellectual culti vation ot the thousands in our own towns and villages u bo have never had the advantages ol' even a common school education > CovDiTin* or iHt Strerti.? A petition, numerously signed by tiie most prominent and respectable residents ol Myrtle avenue, was sent to the Common Council last evening, setting forth the wretched condition of the streets in that section ol the city, aad asking that some I i rumcdiate measures may he adopted, by which the nui sances complained of shall be abated. If there be otlicers appointed to attend to these matters, who are paid by the people lor their services, they should bo made by the supervising authorities to perform their duties rigidly and promptly, or be at once dismissed.

Polick Ofkic k.---The magistrates were for a consider ablo time occupied yesterday in the investigation of a charge of porjurv, against u gentleman connected with the legal profession in Brooklyn. As the matter is not yet disposed of, we do not deem it prudent to publish particulars at present. William Norton, Esq., attorney at law, of New York, is the complainant in the case. Peter Zabriskie, a colored man, was convicted of an assault and battery upon Rachel Underbill, and senten ced to county jail lor thirty days. Joseph Ginghreu and Nathaniel Fleming were severally examined on a charge of disorderly conduct and discharged on payment of costs. John Gilroy hadn row with Oliver Duffey, with whom he bad boarded in Walworth, near Flushing avenue, on Sunday night, and several hundred poople collected.? Yesterday morning he was arrested on complaint of Mr. Duffey, by ollioer McCormick, who secured him after a long chase. Unlicknsrd Dram Shops.?From enquiries which we have mude among persons well acquainted with the sta tistics in such matters, we learn that there are iii the city of Brooklyn at least one hundred and fifty places in which spirituous liquor* are sold without being licensed by the Board of Excise. inasmuch as two thirds of the assault and buttery complaints made at the police office originate in difficulties arising from intemperance, and as the county is subjected to a heavy expense attendant on tho trial of such cases, it behooves tne public autho rities to prosecute [With inflexibie determination, and with the utmost rigor, every one of this class of offen ders.

Before she had welt answered him, he passed into the apartment occupied hy her, and on entering the place he recognized the female as an old acquaintance, and immediately wished to send lor some brandy. He appeared, at this time, to be perfectly rational and sober. The females were relueta^i^^H ------ ? reluctant to comply with his request to get brandy, knowing the public position he occupied ; whereupon he said that if they would not get the brandy, he would. She then consented, and he gave her a five dollar bill to pay for the drink, which she finally got, and aitorwarus more, and more through the following day, Saturday. On Saturday morning he gave her more money to buy him a new shirt, which she did. On Satur day evening he went out lor three hours, and returned uguiu with a different suit of clothes ami freshly dressed. From that time lie remained in the house till he was taken homo in the carriage. During the week that he passed hero, it appears a person, who goes by the soubri quet ol the " Doctor," and is in the habit of visiting the a matter of course, became acquainted with the fact of his being there. When the advertisements of his friends were issued, this man communicated his intelli gence to the individuals who claim to have discovered tiiin.

It appears from the evidence ad duced in the case, that the accused, on the 23th of April, 1833, was married to Bridget Minnary, of the Parish of Grannard, county of Longford, Ireland, by tho Rev. Francis C. Farrell, curate of the l'ari?h, whose certifi cate of the marriage was produced.

It i? said here that she is soon to be mar ried. J. K , and his family, are spending the sea son here. Mr. K. is the descendant of a poor Irish laborer, but by lus connection with the house ot P. Co., lias amassed a large fortune. It is creditable to any man, who by the force of uis own resolution and industry, raises himself trom poverty, to affluence and wealth. Mr B. of New York, the great oil merchant, is also here witti his family, lie lias made his own money, is equal in wealth to Mr. K., but one of the most unassuming men 1 ever met. 'I here is a constant rail road communication be tween this place and New )ork, and with its beau tiful und romantic drives, its salubrious and healthy location, and its excellent hotel, 1 know no plea santer place for a short sojourn than this: and I have no doubt, as soon as it becomes better known, .-uch will be the universal opinion.
