The "Great Waetern atarted from New York on the afternoon of the 4th. inst. with 125 passen gers, and leaving behind hill as many more who could not be accommodated. She also had as much freight as she could carry, besides 51,000 sovereigns in gold. The "R S Stevens" and the 'Passaic" accompanied her down the bay, crowd ed with passengers. The Royal William was ec. peoted on Sunday the 7th. A numerous and highly respectable meeting ofthe inhabitantsof Montreal, L. C. has been held to ex press theireincere regret at the approaching depart ure of Earl Durham, when resolutions were unani mously passed in strong animadversion on the acts of the home government that caused the Earl's re signation. They further beg, warmly and re spectfully, that he will disregard the unwise proe ceedings in London, and continue to administer the government as heretofore, "thereby securing to himself the enduring gratitude of the inhabi" tants of British North America." The 4 mile race over the Union course between Atalanta and Decaturon the 3d, seems to have ex" cited great interest. The weather was gloomyt the course heavy, but the attendance large. At the start the mare was the favorite at 10 toO and won the first heat with apparent ease in 7 51. 10 to one were then bet on Atalanta who led until the 3d mile when Decatur made a rush, passed her isr a handsome brush, and won the heat hard in hand in 7 56. The 3d heat resulted the same as the es cond, in 8 10, which considering the very bad state of the course was very fair time. The second raes, mile heat, was won by Mr. Bot's J.largared Ridgely The own sister to Shark won the let beat. There is a somewhat singular circumstance in the history of this more. Her dam, Lady Light. loot, came to her death in giving birth to the filly Great Britain is likely to become a large pur chaser of rice this season, as the crop in the East lndies has entirely failed. THE' SIEAMsMOAT LAW. Objection o this aset are daily springing up not from those interested in the continuance of an evil so generally felt, but from practical men, whose wish is for a remedy, but whose experience rejects this law as incompetent to its object, yet deeply onerous to those concerned. The humnoe purpose of the law cannot be denied, though its operation may be violently obnoxious to censure. We have heard vast numbers of complaints, and seen some of the evils. The radical defect of the law is, in beginning a remedy at the wrong end. It is useless to imagine that the section of an act can exe rcise the magic of a fairy wand, and at a angle moment convert old boats into new, erack ed boilers into sound ones, or ignorant firemen into skilful engineers. A miracle only could do this. The reform, to be efficacious, must begin with the engin. era a,.d pilots, into whose capabilities a suit. able board should be competent to inquire: thi provision would not only be a security to the pub lic, but would protect the skilful, and experienced from the competition of the underpriecd ignorant A good engineer is even more mpor ant than a new boiler, for if cupidity tempt an owner to en. gngean empiric to save expense, the betar machine in. the world will not insure safety. If steamboal owners, therefore, are stil constiturerl judges of engineers, little change is made, and the less good effected. The principle of the law is thus defec. tive, and its operation liable to many objections, which seem to spring front a too hasty legislation on a most important object. Section 3. Requires that the persons appointed to inspect shall be " skilled and competent,' yet be unconnected with the manufacture of boil ers, engines, machinery, &c, antd gives to such inspectors five dollars for each bout. Now besides the thorough examination of the engine, the in spector must test the boilers, ad try the machine ry. To try thepower of the boilers he must pump them full, and test them with a competent force poump: now many of our boats have seven boilers, and very extensive machinery to examine, all which is to be done for five dollars. Would any person really competenl, go through this drudgery, effectually, for such a stipend? and if not thorough ly done, or by one not fully capable, the whole ex. arninetion isa farce. amination isa farce. The captain is required to obtain from the in spector a certificate of when his boat was built, how long running, &c, which his register will I better show, for we never yet knew that a boat's age, like that of a horse, could be told by auy ntark of mouth. Any such five dollar examinations must be superficial and defective. Then to make the owners underwrite lor the good conduct of all employed in the boat by ms. r king them answerable fr any accident caused by real or supposed negligence, is both unjust and un. Sconstitutional. The penal section which makes it manslaughter against the engineer, captain or pilots, should life be lost by his or their miscon. dct, negligence or inattention, is perhaps neces , eary, but to order to make it just it is essential that r more suitable measures be taken to comnpel the owners of boats to have safe and sound engines. Mlen, whose bread depends on pleasing owners, may rashly venture in defective boats, but the law to be truly useful, should put all risk (as far as practicable) beyond their power. ELECTIONS. GEORGIA.-From the Chronicle (Augusta) oflth 9th we learn that returns have been received from I 4 counties, which show an average majority for r the States Rights party of 3037. In the same counties at the last election Gilmer's majority over Schlsy·was 2O00. His majority in the whole state 762. The Augusta Constitutionalist (V B) aek nowledges that "the States Rights ticket forcen. grees is elected, and there is no doubt that the same party will have a majority in both branches of the General Assembly. Mnl.asar.-It is impossible to give a synopsis of the returns, but from the desponding tone of the Van Buren organ in Baltimore, the Republi can, it is quite clear that the Whigs have carried their Governor (Steele) and a majority of the Le. gislature. The Republican recommends its party "not to bet on the result, although, &c. &c." There was a serious disturbance in Baltimore on the night of the election, and shots from muskets and pistols were plentifully flying. The City Guard both horse and foot were called out to dis. perse the crowd, and remained under arms the whole of the night. We do not learn the extent of the mischief done. "The.ieMardanhs Daughter," by the author of the "Heiresas," "Anes Serle," &c. The reputa.. tion acquired by the novel of "the Heiress," would be a passport foralmost any work, but "The Mer. chant's Daughter" needs nothing but a reading to insure it popularity. The story is one of much domestic interest, and simplicity and pathos mark the language throughout, and will afford some hours ofagreeable excitement for the coming long evenings of winter. It may be had at the store of Mr. McKean. "Greece, Turkey, Russia, and Poland,', is the title of a work from the same pen that lately produced a "Tour in Egypt, Arabia Patrmea, and the Holy Land." The author has thrown together a vast quantity of information regarding the interesting countries of Greece and Turkey in a light and agreeable style. His anecdotes of Turkish ladies and Turkish lovers are exceedingly pip.anl and entertaining. Nor are his sketches of Russia and I Poland a jot less entertaining, for if the manners of thse toe coun'ries be nol so picturersre,, threy be. Isls ktnotu, and the novelty more than com-ru pemnltea for any lack of graphic beauty. The Wtonders of the summer and winter gardens in the a Hermitage on the banks of the Neva, are more singular than the Seraglio at Stamboul. The Russians have falsified the doubts of the poet in I these artificial Edens Shakeepbre says " Ah who can hold a sin hi band By btinking ofthe frc-ty Csauesos: Or wtlownakedt in Dsecember's snow,. By baeremembrance of the summer's hatd" Whereas for the very hot weather, which for a season is excessive, from the windows are seen glaciers, and mountains of snow, sledges on ice fields, and peasants wrapped in skins and furs: while in winter time are seen artificially heated gardens, where flowers and fruits are growing, singing birds carrolling on the tree tops, and give ing old Boreas, outesde, the lie. This really interesting work is from the press of the Harpers, and may be had at Mr McKean'sin Camp street. " The Woman of the World," is another webrk just issued from the store of Mr McKesn, and is one of the best of the fa-hionable novels, for while it pictures the manners of the English, and the English court, even in the present year, it is full alike of the agreeable and instructive. Mrs Harts ton, the authoress of the "Diary of a Desen. euyee," pourtrays but what she views, and every page of her work proves that " The Women of the World," is written by a woman of fashion. Resumplion in Misuiesippi.-We learn from the Courier of last night that the banks of oursister state will resume specie payment simultaneously with our own on the let January next. stenam Race to come off.--he rival boats, the r "Narragnsett," and the "John W. Richmond," I running between New York and Boston have been constantly bantered, each Iby the other, regarding their speed, and lnt.ahe newspaper controversy has arisen from their respective claims to superiority. The "Rishmend" has constantly proclaim ed a de termination not to race with its rival, while the lives of passengers wer, in jeopardy, and this the Narragansett has constrtv'd into a genteel back, out. The former offered a banter of $50,000 which the latter declined. At long if the "Richmond" has come out with a public challe'nge to race with the "Narragansett" for some three or four times the amount of the boat's expenses, w.iith a proviso that 6 days notice be given , f the vppointed day, and that neither boat shall carry ti tight or passengers. The Narragansett has the privilege of naming any time prior to the 10th instant, iond to make the trial either by day or night, a' its owners might please. The boats jwere there, fore in this awkward~diletnma at the last accounts If one declined, it was sure to be blown up by the other,-if they race, both might be blown up to, gether, by the press of steam, and in either case they were sure to be blown up by the steam of the preas, for having offered to rase at all.

Editors,o EE I have seen in the columns of the Bulletin of yesterday a card with its accompanying Iran elation ptrporting toin he from the National of Parin f on the subject of France and Mexico, the tenor I of which is calculated to mislead the public opin ion in regard to the justice of the claims of France on Mexico, to arouse the sympathies of the Ameri. can people in favor of the latter; and awaken our prejudices against the ! former. In order that the American public may be ahleo to arrive at just con clusions on thesubject it ie neceseary that both aides of the question should be heard; nor is itjust that France our old friend and ancient ally should r be wantonly assailed in her honour (the point dear to all Frenchmen) through the American press without having a lance splintered in her defence. Let its exanine attentively and impartially some of the points at issue between the two eovern e meots,and I fancy every unprejudiced mind will at once agree that the Mexiean government has lost all claims to the sympaties of the American people, whilst it will tie accorded that France has pursued a just and proper course, one alike due to a injured honor and to the families of her citizons who have been rt bhed and murdered by the Mexi. cans. If I ant not mistaken a treaty of commerce and friendship was entered ilto by those two net tionain the year 1830, by the stilpulatione of which the citizens of each nation were reciprocally on. n t:tled'to the special protection onfthe laws of thleir several countries. If this however should not be Scorreet, Mexico having assumed the rank of a ci. a vilized nation was morally bound to extend the protection of her laws to every person that entered her territory. Did IMexico htlfil that ohligation and extend the ages of her laws over the French citizens? I answer no! and will proceed to to nar. rate some of the evils for which France demands indemnification from the Mexican government. Ia n the year 1834 some ten or fifteen French hrti aI ans with their families were brought to the city at Puebla for the purpose of putting up sme ma nufactory abhout to be estlablished under the im a mediate auspices of the Mexican government, they were busily engaged in their occupation in the vi. ninity of the city when the ch lera made its ap pearance with frightful vollence to the inhabi. tants; the terrilied populicee brought the Prreits toinvoke Heaven nod all the Saints trtop the pestilence, recourse was liad by thoirs to the usual remedies in like cases; the chohlera was exorcised with all due esletnoity, the most famons miracle. working saints (el which that city aboultde,) were paraded through the streets with all the pomp and circutnstance of zeal, oflferings ineu . stable were made at their shrine. but the anitirr co.ttlnt-ed its ravages regardless alike of thtter exorcisms and, the power of their seints, the debnae I populace bean to doutet tie power fl their eaints and the elicacy of prayer, and even tie prieuthood was dismlayed, and tretmbled I et their vacillateng pow er should be lost, their ingenelty seon presented them with an expedient to reat-re the confidence of the peo le it Heaven and the Sain c-iliet caused it to be bruired abouth by ineideus and sly friars tlhat the French lCereeciS hadI pisonied the water of the ctll, which, at once stccunted fir the iaefficacy of lhetr objurgations: thief ile Hc cunstton that only could emanate fromi the bsone of a fiend or a Mexican triar, .aos spread with ex. treate avidity and industry. In tile miean lime the disease h d extended amongst p the Door French artisans. Ill the vicinlty, tile director of the ee tablishment was suddenly seized with alarming ae mptome of desease, his wile having no person of confidence at hand who undersettld the Spanish lanlguage, was impelled by a site Ig sense ofduts to her busband and tamtly to go to the city fr professional advice and medicine; having obtained the first she alighted atan apothecary shop where she procured among other things a bottle oflau daaunmaeontaining a pint or more, she ascended her carriage and with an anxiety only to be .elt hy a wile whose husbant'sl life was endangered de sired the coachmnan to proceed homeward o last as posliblc: the carriage had proceeded but a few aquarel when it was stopped by a itlcb headed by a close shorn and greaey neckeu Iriar, the lady was dragged from the coach and the medicine found in; It was ulaclosed by the lrier to be poison which she doaubtless intended to pat in the stream that afforded water to the city, and site was tetme diotely obliged to aal.lw titi. ihlule pint or lcet. uflatdanum, after which she wee tied by theltnele to hie tail of a Iorse and dragged through the streets until her body was torn to pieces: her at. t ndants were murdered on the spo,. and the in furiated mob conducted by the fri.r proceeded to the residence of the poor artizesn whom they mturo dered and afterwards plundered their property, leaving the mangled bodies to be devoured by cu gotee and snpilotee, wolves and Vulture.. The French Consul of Vera Cruz, Mons Carri ere. on hearing of the outrage committed upon his innocent and unuffending fellow cilizens, with a promptitude that done honor to his head and his ( heart, immediately set out for the scene of the 1 direful tragedy, where he arrived some eight days I alter its occurrence, and fournd to his dismay that the civil authorities had taken no cognisance of the affair, whereupon lie made an olficial demand in the name of his country that the ring-leaders should be arrested, tried, and punished by the law which they had so scandalously violated. A prompt and satisfactory reply was given by the civil authorities, they assured hint the uerdcilie de aIn Icy, knilfe of the law should be applied to the leaders without delay, and in accordance with that pledge some ten or filteep of the leaders were or rested, part of wlhom were priest and friars, these latter belonging to thIe Holy Molthr Crurch were handed over to the ecclesiastical court for adjudi. catton, tile rest were prosecuted with a becomring zeal, witnesses were exanined and full proof of guiit readily obtained, and the processes handed to the assessor tr be sentenced. The Conunsel then returned to his oflil i i atalial in Vera Cruz, bear Ing with him a renewed pledge on the part of the I authorities that punislhment would soon follow. The moment his back was turned tie whole pow er of the Church was put in requmrition to save the assassins from punishment, a power by the by that Y is never vainly exerted in the sai dtsant R ,public of a Mexico. Tihe result was that the pledge freely given by tile authorities of tire Mexican govern. mtent ana eordiully received by Mons Carrtere on the part of France, was redeemed by placing the culprits at liberty, asld the Mexican government r by that act assuumed the responsibility of the mur. y der ard robbery of the Frtnch nltizens. The French gnvernmnent wisely says we cannot call the dead to tie, but as you have refused to render us e justice by inflicting pumishment on your own citi. zens, yeu must do us the justice to repair the da. rimage done to our citizenr as far as it can be done n in a pecuniary way. You have murdered our citi. g ns and robbed their property, you must now pay their hbeirsa pension, and as we cannot trust any more to your good faith you must capitalize that I. pension, or in other words you must pay to the heirs oi each individual whom you have assassin ated, that preclse sum; the interest of which, will h be equivalent to to the pension allowed by France to the heirs of such of her citizens as perish in the service of their country. Is this demand unjust or illiberal Does not esr country pay a peneion ie h divers French citizens,or the heirs of French cirn. ,, zens, for injuries inflicted by accident or negligence on the part of the officers of our vesselsof war? Then it a sense of justice impelled the American a Congress to freely grant the latter, by what parity o of reasoning do the Mexicans expect to escape, when then the injuries inflicted on the French ci. tizens in their case, did not result front accident r but design. e In a lew days we will present some other cases at issue between those two guvernments, that are d if possiblc, o a more flagrant charater, inasmuch Sa t'lty emunated dieet ly from therMeicuan govern. rillUet.
