Correspondence of the Commercial AdvrrtUer. Waihjngto.i, Jan. 12, 1850. The events of the last three day seem to have produced a greater excitement and wider es - iranjremeut between the North and South than even the prolonged contest over the Speakership. Mr. Campbell, Whig, or Tennessee, was yesterday elected clerk, on the tweutictti trial, by the aid of eight Southern Democratic votes, of which five were from South Carolina, .one from North Carolina, one from Alabama ana one from Tennessee. The Democrats from the North were indignant at this infringement of party discipline, which they call open and inexcusable treachery. Mr. Campbell was eupported by all the Whig present except Messrs. Allen and Mann of Massachusetts Mr. Wood, of Ohio, congratulated .hi Democratic friends of the North that they bad at length clearly ascertained the nature oftho ties which connected them with the Southern Democracy, and he thanked Uie latter that they bad at last shown (be colors under which they had been for some time sailing. Mr. McLane, of Maryland, proposed to extinguish Mr. Wood with a question, which Mr. W. professed hitnseir willing to'liear and auewer, but the House objected, and the opportunttv or hearing a very interesting colloquy was not afforded. Mr. Wood was one of the half doxen Northern Democrats who refused to vote for Mr. Cobb for Speaker, when the latter was elected, though he had supported him when originally presented as the caucus candidate. There is no doubt that this separation of party friends will lead to important results in the future proceedings of the House duriue the present Congress. The exasperation or the Democrats broke out in many expressions. One declared that he bad given hi last vote lor a Southern wan for any ofiice ; another hoped that, if there were any more Soutrern. candidates, they would now he brought forward ; aod yet another exclaimed "So much for Suulhem faith and honor." The effect whs slioan in pirt on the first trial for tho election of a serjeant - at - arms, when it was sen that the vote for the regular Democratic candidate, Mr. Lane, or Kentucky, did not come up to the full party strength by nearly twenty ; and it was still farther developed to - day, when the impossibility of electing him was manifested ra plainly as to ' require that lie should be withdrawn, and some 'Northern man be put in nomi - uation. Some, contemptuous good nature was eveo shown by the victors, in the manner or making the concession, lor Mr. Cobb, of Alabama, be - lore proposing Jesse E. Dow, the ribald "Heroic Age" of the Union, condescended to auk Air. Wil - mot if that nomination would be agreeable to him and his friends, to which Mr. W. replied that they would take their own course. The House will probably complete itsorganiza - tion in a day or two, and then will be called upon to pass or reject Mr. Root's resolution requiring the committee upon territories to report bills organizing Government for New Mexico and Do - eret, provid.ng fir the exclusion of slavery. ii win pruoaniy do adopted, .linen lime will be anted in trie discussion or the slavery question. $ IN SENATE.

SUMMARY. Correspondence of the Journal t Eagle. ' Letter from California. - , Sas Facisco, California, Nov. 1 1, 1819. I arrived at this place last Saturday cvrning, safely ,'and in excellent health. Oar passage Irom Valparaiso was a very long and tedious one. We were on allowance of two quarts of water per day, of which about half was used for cooking. On land this would be quite sufficient lor a person, but at sea, where there are no vegetable, and nothing but salt beef and that of the (attest kind, it is quite a different a flair. I never underwent uch privations before. However, my health did not suffer. Now as regards this "FJ Dorado." This is one of the finest and most beautiful harbors in the world; for, entering through a passage about two miles wide, between lofty mountains, within, the bay extends some forty miles in each direction, surrounded by high mountains, and interspersed with numerous islands, some of which are or considerable extent. The city or San Francisco is situated on a ride hill, about six miles from theentrance. It contains at present about twelve hundred bouses, and trom twenty to thirty thousand inhabitants, most of whom are living In tents, and under arbors made oi bushes, while Borne are entirely destiiute of any shelter at all. The rainy season has fairly set in, and the mud Is knee deep. Provisions are extravagantly With; flour $35. pork $10. and every thing else in proportion. Of course there is a great deal of suffering ; a large number die every day, whose deaths are not published ; several bodies are found every morning on the beach, and under carts where they have crawled for ehelter. The principal disease is Dysentery, although dissipation and exposure kills a great many. Indeed, I never have seen so much dissipation in my lite as prevails here. Every one drinks, and gambling is going on in almost every house, from eight in the morning until twoand three at night, Sundays not excepted, and thousands change hands every day. It is the best business here, and next to it is the law, as there is an immense amount ol litigation going on, and the place is filled with young lawyers, most of whein are making money. Mechanics wages are very high ; a good carpenter or blacksmith can get Iroin $15 to $S0 per day ; lumber is from 2U0 to S300 per thousand. Rents are extravagant ; a small room ten feet square brings $200 a month, and I know of a tent that rents for $5,000 n year. The rent of the Parker House, a large hotel on the Plaza, is only $135,000 per year. Immense sums have been realized on land. Lots that were bought six months ago fur $70 on credit, now sell for 10 and $20,000. The cheapest board you can get is $25 per week, exclusive of lodging, which costi $1,50 per night. Large numbers are coming down daily trom the mines.some with a pretty good quantity of "dust but the greater number without any. It is very Bickly up there, and moat of the operatives arc coming down to spend the rainy season. The sickness nud privation here is appalling, and I have about come to the conclusion that this is the greatest humbug that was ever started. There is plenty of gold here, but it requires regular miners to get il ; men who have had experience, and understand separa - Congress has appropriated 1,500,000 for the improvement of the Dea Moines river. This improvement will consist in the erection of twenty - five cut stone dams with locks, rendering this riv er navigable for steamboats as far up as Furt Des Moines at all seasous, except when frozen. Each dam will support 114 - 12 feet head of water, thereby creating a water power at each dam unsurpassed by any in the United Slates. It is 202 miles from the month to Fort Dcb Moines. The Des Moines river is as large a the Connecticut. Hunting a Panther. The Fulton Co. Democrat tells of a panther hunt in that county which lasted several das, and in which hundreds participated. Finally they succeeded in shooting the animal, which proved to be a brindlo dog with bis ears cropped. H. G.

He was driven to the murder in consequence of the inlidelily of his wife. The Jury imposed a ftne of $1,000, and six months imprisonment. In this part or the country Juries decide as to the guilt or innocence, aud our Courts impose the penalties Globe.

Pieces weighing S, 4 aud even C tons, were hurled through the roof, crashing every thing befure them. One man was 6lighlly injured. The damage cannot be less than $ 1 0,000 it may reach 30,000.

Philadelphia Ledge. Extraordiniry Escape from Death. Tho following strange story is related in the Baton Rouge Gazette (Eitra) of the 8th instant: A very fcingular or rather extraordinary escape from death occurred to one of the deck hands of the Magnolia on her last trip up frum New Orleans. The man alluded to was silting on the bow of the boat asleep, when he fell overboard and slipped under the boat. The next instant he was picked up by the paddle of tho wheel, aod Rifely, and ting the gold by mercury. Digging now is just like without injury, deposited in tho wheel - house. So ' lottery, some are fortunate enough to pick out a sudden was this done that he woke up very much cooj pnCe, and procure from 10 to S100 per day.

FOUGHKEEPSIE: Saturday Morning. Jan. 19, 1850. For the Free circulation of Newspapers for thirty toOcs from the place of publication. Cliex of tbi Housi. On Friday of last week Thomas J.Campbell, the whig. clerk of the last House of Representatives, was chosen Clerk of the present, receiving on the last ballot 118 votes, over Col. Forney, editor ol the Philadelphia Pennaylva - nian, who was the regular loco foco candidate. Aa the Clerk is the only officer of the House besides the Speaker whose station is of any political importance there was of necessity a heavy struggle, the Iree soilers and other impracticable reramng 10 join either of the great parties to produce a choice, and thus save the time lost, while the public business was suffering for wan: of attention. A choice was at last effected through the votes of eiaht southern democratic members, 6ve of them being from South Carolina, one from North Carolina, one from Alabama, and one from Tennessee, who on the twentieth trial voted for Mr. Campbell and elected htm. As Mr. Campbell is from Tennessee, and the loco candidate, Forney, from Pennsylvania, as soon aa the result was announced a high excitement arose between the party members from the north and south, Mr. Wood, of Ohio, who hss just been nominated bv the loco focoa for governor of that state, taking the lead and eipressing his satisfaction that they at last understood each other, and that he considered a union between them at an end. Mr. Campbell is admitted on all hands to be an excellent officer, and in every point of view except hi political Bentimems, unobjectionable to those who opposed him. He haa the support oi an me whigs who were present except Allen and Mann of Massachusetts. By way oi consolation to the disappointed friends of Col. Forney, on Monday a man by the name of Adam Gloesbennrr, of Pennsylvania, was chosen Sergeant - at - Arms, but he was not the regular party candidate, that pmleman having found it necessary to withdraw.

In all the proceeding there was great unanimity of feeling, although much interest. wa manifested in reference to the probable location, each of the three prominent and highly favorable route havingwarm advocate, but the prevailing sentiment' on all hand was in favor of the most advantageous when all the considerations came to be weighed. The several committee were selected with the bet feeling and the proceedings adopted unanimously. We regard this first demonstration as settling the question that the road will speedily be made ; the men who made it, and who have the means of building, are awakened to its importance, and we doubt not that aa soon a the necessary preliminary step can be taken, the stock will be immediately subscribed and the work commenced.

A gentleman who left a Professorship in Yale College, has been attending bar in a grog shop, and driving an ox team ; another, a clerk who had a situation in Wall street, with 2,000 a year, is now driving a cart through the mud ; at any time you can see dozens who were well off, digging ditches in the streets for $7 a day ; a great many get discouraged, gamble and dissipate, until all their money is gone, and their health ruined, and then they either commit suicide, or era v. I away under some budding and aie found dead - Now you may think I exaggerate things, but I assure you I do not ; there are thousands of cases of sickness, suffering and death, that I do not know any thing about. The papers hete will not publish these facts, as it is to the advantage of capitaliis to gel as many persona here as possible, end take advantage of their necessities. I have mot a great many friend: and acquaintances here. ome lew have done well, but not one has succeeded at the mines. It is singular in this land cf gold, that motiey is the most important thing to bring with ou; but il is so. With it you can realize your wildest anticipations; without it you are leu thousand times worse off than in New York, for here there is no charity or pity, and no alms house, or relume. My business is excellent ; if you have capital to pay $300 advance for your office and board, but there is one physician here to every ten men. I hate not yet made up my mind what I shall do. As to going up to the mines, and ruining my health by hard work, and exposure,sleepingon the ground, living on salt pork and bread, &c. I shall not do thai. I shall soon find what is to be done, and If I cannot do rrry well, I shall return as soon as I can. own that I have been grievously disappointed with regard lo this place. Do not advise any person to come here unless they can bring plenty ol capital, and if ihey can do that they are much belter oil where they are.

Dallas, the United States Minister to Russia. The following interesting incident was described ut the time, as having takeu place soon after the arrival of that noble ship eff Ihe port of Cronstadt : Wo arrived orTCronsladt ou Saturday morning, SGth July, and mo6t lovely moruiug it was. The harbor was covered with Bhips of war, and vessels of all nations, of every size and description. To increase the interest aud beauty of the see no, a Russian fleet, in the Pcterhoff, was formed in two opposing squadrons, aud, after manoeuvring some time iu slum fight, opened their batteries upou each oluer. We had scarcely anchored and fired, and received our customary salute, when a (learner, crowded with officers, was 6een making for us, and soon an officer of high rank, accompauied by a large staff, came on board our ship. He was ad progress ou tho bill to amend the new law. On motion of Mr. Mann this bill was re introduced to Commodore Nicholson as Prince1 before us a copy. Tm Question or rata Postage. A state convention of editors was held at Harrisburgh.inP"" sylvania, on the first inst. which was""attendcd by the representatives of twenty - four presses in different parts of the state. Hon. Nimrod Strickland, of the West Chester Republican, presided.and J. G. M' Kinly, ofthe Democratic Union, and II. A. Misb, ol the Franklin Intelligencer, acted as secretaries. The convention adopted a series or tesolutions in favor of having newspapers circulated free in the Congressional districts in which they are published, and adopted measures to carry out this object ofthe convention. During the past week a few demonstrations in this line have been made at Albany, which we trust will be unanimously sustained in the legislature. On the 14th inst. af icr Mr. Babcock of Buffalo, had oneredinthe Senate a series of resolutions on the subject of letter postage, Dr. Brandreth moved to I must i add the following : "Resolved, That oor Senators and Represenia - I lives be requested to recommended tbe adoption of ; a law malting newspapers pusiaae uec .a cacu Congressional district.' On the 13th, Mr. Carroll of Troy, presented the in the Senate the following : Resolved, Thai our Senators in Congress are hereby instructed, and our Representatives requested, to use their best efforts to secure the passage of an act, establishing a uniform rate of postage thro - out the United Slates, of 2 cents on all letters weighing half an ounce, if prepaid, or 5 cents for each half ounce, if not prepaid : Also, fur the purpose of more satisfactorily testing the practicaDilny of such reductions of the postage rate, to use their best efforts to secure by further enactment, the keeping ofa distinct account of all mautm allowed to past through the mails free of postage, and lo make the same, (except such as shall relate lo the business oi tbe Post Ofiice Department,) a charge at the rate of other mail matter upon the treasury ol tne uuiled states: Also, tu uw their best exertion by further enactment, lo provide for the conveyance by mail poet, Iree, of all regular newspapers in the United Slates, wiihin ihe counties in which they are printed and published. On the same day Mr. Fullerton presented in the assembly resolutions in favor ol the free circulation of newspapers lor thirty miles from tbe place of publication, but of these we cannot find in any paper tion ofthe Hon.

Fesau HaraBATios. A society, highly respectable in numbers and character, has been formed in London to promote the emigration of respectable females from England to tbe different British colonies. In a report of their views and objects, the officers state that there are now in London alone 35,000 women who are employed in making clothing, of whom 23,000 are under twenty years of age, and that among all their wages does not average over from two and a half to four and a halfpence per day, on which they attempt to subsist ; that throughout the kingdom there is probably an excess of at least half a million of females over the male population, while in the British colonies generally the excess is ihe other wsv. the males outnumber ing the females nearly one third. The leaders of tiful strip of land suitable for building purposes. ihe society are of ihe opinion that by sending the females to the colonies and thus equalizing the sexes, society in said colonies may be greatly improved in the only available way of accomplishing that object, tbe excess of female labor in London and other English cities removed, and thus thousands who are suffering and must continue to suffer in their present circumstances, will be relieved and placed in comfort. Offices are already opened for registering the names of those disposed to go, who will be carefully provided for on tbe voyage, and for a time after their arrival at the port of destination. Hon. Sidney Herbert, member of Parliament from South Wiltshire is said lo be the author ofthe plan. Wolf Catching In Norway. In Norway, and perhaps in some other northern coumrie. the following very simple contrivance ia used for tbe capture of tbe wolf: In a circle about six or eight feet in diameter stakes arc driven o clow to each other that a wolf cannot creep through, and which are high enough to prevent him from leaping over them. In the midst of thi circle a single take jg driven, to which a lamb or yonng kid is bound. Around this circle a second is formed, of which the stakes are a. high and a close as tbe inner one, and at a distance not greater than will permit a wolf to pass conveniently, but not to allow of his turning round. In tbe outer circle a door is formed which opens inward, aud rests against lite inner circle, but move easily on its hinge and fastens itself ou shutting. Through this door the wolves enter sometime in soch great somber a to fill the rneloNire. The first wolf now pace tbe cir cle in order to discover some opening, through which be can get at tbe lamb. When he comes to tbe back of the door, which is in hn way, he pushes it with hi muzzle it closes and fasten he puses by, and goes the round for the second time, without being able either to enter the inner circle, or to retreat from the outer. At length be perceive, be is a prisoner, and hi hideous bowling announces to those who have constructed tbe trap that lie is taken, - vho immediately come and dispatch him. It is said that sort of trap bain used for fbxea, and even occasionally for mice. The military force alone of the rebels is estima ted at 120,001) men. with one hundred and ten cautiou, aud if there arc any joined by Croats, which appears highly probable, lliey will have 200,000 men with 300 cannon The numbers of ihe iusnrgeut are daily swelled by deserters from the Austrian regiments in Pelerwordeiu, Esseg, &.C. It is said that Russia has been intriguing to get up this iusurection, in order to have both Austria aud Turkey entirely dependent upon her ; iu proof of which the latest accounts from Servia mention that the Russian agitator is daily growing more open and daring, aud that the iucredi - tay it on the table to be printed.

In bis snitc ' wis an officer whose uniform was distinguished frum that of the rest of the staff, by the top of i his cap being white instead of rival green. Alter the usual lorms of introduction had bceu gone through and the Prince invited into the Commo - i dure' cabin, Ihi officer sepraaled himself from the real, and went forward among the men, and I thence down tne mam deck, and, in snort, all over the ship, examining every thing particularly. On the main deck he met the nurse of Mrs. Dallas, with little Charlotte, a beautiful curly - ' headLd cherub, whom he took from the nurse aod caressed. On returning to the quarter deck, hi ' general appearance and lofty mien soon caused , him to be recoguized as the Emperor himself, ' but as he had come incognito, all honors and at - j U ntions were paid by the Commodore and his I I olficers to tbe 1 riuce,while they remained on board It Is to be hoped that these resolutions, so far a. they relate lo newspapers at any rate, will be promptly acted upon and passed unanimously by both branches ofthe legislature,. Lnder such circumstances they cannot (ail to have the desired influence at Washington. In addition to these movements in the right line, we find otheis which show thai tbe subject is daily and steadily commanding more and more attention. Among these we consider the following worthy of attention. Postage on Newspapers. As long as the Post Office Department is sustained upon the principle now in vogue, all mane rpassing through tbe mails should pay something, f or this reason the circulation of Newspapers.ree should not be allowed. While we objeot to tbe re - enactment ofthe old law on this subject, we at the same time are opposed to Some letter writers from Washington say that Mr. Bulwer, the new British Minister resident there, will remain but two years, but i sent to learn the ways of our government and people preparatory to being made govomer of Canada. We presume the writers concerned are not let into the secret ol Brit ish object and intentions, but if such are really the ends had in view in sending the present Minister to Washington, it is evidence that the British authorities are at last awakened to tbe importance of putting the colonics in the line of improvement. Prittj oood iota.

AUSTRIA AND HUNGARY. Mutiny at Comorn. A Mutiny broke out in one of the Austrian regiments .stationed io Comorn on the 19ih nit. through which several superior officers were killed by the exasperated men. Tbe Austrian Government is about raising a foreign loan of 30,000,000 florins in the Lombard Venilian kingdom. The financical deficit of Aus tria is said to be 40,000 francs per diem. Guitvus Baltyany haa sold his Hungarian estates, of course at an immense toss, and there i much laud of that country in the market, and but few buyers. He made latterly an application to the Emperor that hi ion, who wa enrolled as a private in tbe imperial service on the conclusion of Ihe Hungarian war, might be spared that deg - redation, and restored to his family - This petition wa rejected. Schwarzenberg' reply was that "the Magyar pride must learn to bend." The young Battyany did indeed bend, to rub down Ihe ahin of hi hone for instance ; but some time ago be wa promoted to tbe rank of v. Inch locked, he said, as if she was well built for fighting. Prince MenchikofT, having been taken thro' the ship, took leave, and, in his barge, pushed off lor the sleamer, the Emperor acting as coxswain. The moment they were on board the steamer, we mauned our yards, hoisted iho Russian flag, and fired a salute of forty - one guus, thus apprising the Emperor that ho was known to us. He then hoisted our flag on board his steamer, ordered one of his frigates to return the salute, and stood on Ins way. As soon as the bring was over, the Emperor in compliment to us, hoisted the imperial standard, on the appearance of which all the 6hips aod fort in the harbor opened a salute, and a more beautiful and animating scene I have not witnessed, and cannot imagine.

Oood withes for January May your nevir want a friend, and a barrel of oysters to give him. cole is plainer than that mail matter should nav in proportion to its weight and ihe distance of transportation. To lax our sheet as much for this purpose, for transmission to the Sahna Post Office, a distance of only one mile, asfortbe Evening Post or Tribune from New York to the same place, a distance of 300 miles, is rank injustice to us and should not be tolerated. All we ask or desire is, that the city and country press should be placed ss nearly on an equality in this respect, as il is possible to bring them. We do not say what either should be taxed, but certainly the expense to government, of delivering our paper to subscribers within the county, does not exceed one fourth of whst it costs to bring the same sized sheet from New York or Boston. This inequality and injustice must be remedied at once. Onondaga Standard. The doctrines here laid down are fair, altho' they do not come to our standard, for we insist tbe government can far better afford to carry papers thirty miles for nothing than the same sheet three hun dred, or five hundred miles for a cent, or a thousand for a cent and a halt, and we and those who act with us stand ready to submit with cheerfulness to rates thai shall be fair to all, and will be found among the last to grumble at paying our share of the tax when others are required to pay theirs. We can say with the Standard, "all we ask or desire isj that the city and country press should be placed as nearly on an equality in this respect, as it is possible to bring them." But who "expects to see that just principle of taxing all in proportion to the benefits they enjoy carried out in these days when the bum - tug outcry is heard on every side for uniformity, tht same for all distances, the most unjust and oppressive that could possibly be deviaed 1 We do not, and therefore we protest against the sanctioning of all retrograde movements in the cheap post age system ot Hi, at least until it is shown upon some authority that there were evil resulting from the tree circulation of papers for two years under that system, which nobody np to this day has ever attempted to do. Axotsxb Def Auwtg. A general igent of Mexican claims at Washington haa proved t defaulter to the amount ol SO,000, and has fled from the city. Colokizatios Society. The annual meeting of the American Colonization Society was held at Washington on Tuesday, the Hon. Hr.vay Clay again occupying the Chair, made a brief speech, which gave much additional interest to the proceed ings. According to the annual report, the past year has been one of unusual prosperity, the receipts have been $55,000, but the expenditures have exceeded that sum owing to the pressing demands upon the society. During the year four hundred emigrants have been sent to Liberia, and as many more will be sent in the course ofthe next six weeks. There are far more applications of persons desirous to go thsn the society can find means to send. WEntoax's Dieaxcatiox. All doubts about the defalcation of Prosper M. Wetmore, late Navy Agent at New York, are at laat removed. The accounting offices ofthe Treasury Department who have examined his accounts, state that he is (ound a defaulter to tbe amount of one hundred and eighty - one thousand five hundred and eighty dollars, for which amount the United States District Attorney for this district, haa been ordered to commence summary proceedings in conformity with tbe act of Congress. Model ScascmiasRs. It is becoming fashionable for papers to boast of their model subscribers, and we begin to consider the plan a good one, as it en courages many to honest dealing with the craft. But we find there are variona kinds ot models in subscribers as well as machinery, and consider each kind entitled to notice. While we have large numbers whe keep always In advance, we have others that 'are always in arrear, and it seems never intend to be any where else. But among the rare ones we had one call tbe other day who had got in arrear four years ; he at first grumbled hall an hour at the amount of his bill, but when he could not dispute its correctness en that score, he insisted that we ought, under the circumstances, ta consider it in advance ! and charge only tht advance price .'and wentoffsavageuameat axe' because . we would not agree, after his culpable delay, to be shaved out oftwrnty.five per eent.of our dues!. Such model, as well as others, ought to be exhibited for the public benefit. The National Intelligencer says tbe city of Washington now contains 6,323 dwelling bouses and 37,923 inhabitants, having greatly increased in population within a few years. DoE"BRow.'.' Some time last October two fellows arrived in town with a great swell, and put ' up at one of our best hotcbt. Shortly after their arrival a lot ot handbills was ordered printed at our I office, announcing the arrival ol J. B. BROWN, I Professor of Elocution, and J - BARNEY, Irish ' Comedian, and that they would give au enter - tainment at the Village Hall, and cue "roars of 1 laughter !" and make " Iota or fun !" The bills were posted and the Halt lighted ; but the actors were found missing. They had mysteriously disappeared, leaving our bill, among others, unpaid. iVo tnai - ' riea mere made for them ! We learn by the Hudson Gazette, that Hobble Clark, & Co. of that city, have purchased the steamer Columbia and intend running her between that place and New York the coming season. She will be fitted up In the beat manner, and will doubtless be well sustained. The slander suit brought by Mr. Rowley against T.S. Faxton, President of the N. Y. and Buffalo Telegraph Company, was tried before tbe Supreme Court in Hudson, last week, and tbe jury gave a verdict of $1,250 for the plaintiff. It is understood that the case will be carried np. The proprietor of an extensive tannery in Hunter, Greene county, gave bis employed men and their families a festive entertainment on New Years' day. There were some twenty - four families beside a number of single men. Both employer and employed in this establishment seem to regard each others' interests, and it is said to be one ofthe oldest and most prosperous in the slate. Tbe cause of Temperance seems to have taken a sudden and remarkable impulse in almost every part of the state. We hardly open an exchange latterly without finding some nnuaoal record of lu onward progress papers that but a few - months since did not even allude to tbe subject, now devote in some instances a column in noticing the success and revolutions which the principle of total abstinence ia making. We bare now before us an editorial notice ofa meeting held in Westchester county, at which one hundred and fitly ladies and gentlemen came forward and signed the total abstinence pledge. The state legislature have already had their attention called to tbe subject of the necessity of legislation upon the question, and the whole people seem to be unusually excited upon the subject. Whatever measures the friends of "this great and good cause advocate hoping for their success should be strictly prudential. By adopting a system ol united efforts ol a conciliatory character, the influence of many can be secured who might otherwise become exasperated and driven away. Tbe trial of Capt. Rynders, and three or four other ruffians, charged with being concerned in tbe Astor - Place riot, ii now going on in the city of New York. Judging from past experience, there is little prospect that jastlce will ever reach Rynders and tbe bullying loafers who associate with him. We hope it may be otherwise. The Sullivan Watchman, is trying to annihilate the President by calling him Zachary the first. President Taylor Toe American Board. A letter from the Secretary ofthe American Board of Commissioner of Foreign Missions In New York having beau addressed to President Tatlor, notifying him that he had bean made an honorary fife member of that society by the pay. meut of $100 by Anson G. PnEirs, Esq. the following acknowledgment was received In reply: Sir I have respectfully to acknowledge your communication of the 12th iust transmitting a certificate constituting me an honorary life Member of the American Board of Commissioner for Foreign Miaioos, issued upon the payment of 8100 by Anson G. Phelps, Esq, of New York. I will thank yon to convey to Mr. Phelps my acceptance of the obligation under which b bas placed me, by thus associating my name with a body which has been the instrmnsut of so much good as tho Board for Foreign Missions, and to the Board itself my high gratification at being numbered among its honorary members. With much respect, I am your friend aadjobe - dienl nervant, Z. TAYLOR. STThe marriage of the Duke Morupemrier, son cf Louis Phillippe, wilh a sister ol the Queen of Spain, it will be remembered, was violentlv opposed by the British Government before its consummation, for the reason that, in the event of ihe Queen dying without issue, the French Prince, in right of his wife, might succeed to the Spanish Crown. The probability of such in event is diminished by the fact mentioned in the following paragraph,' taken from a foreign joornal - . "The report in circulation relative ta the interesting condition of tbe Quern ol Spain, haa been officially confirmed.. The Ministers wailed on their Majesties this morning to compliment them en the occasion." - t . Dr. Webster la Jail. We learn that Dr. Webitcr has made frequent complaint to Mr. Andrew, the Jailor, that th occupants ofthe cells in his Immediate vicinity are iu the habit of shouting out to him nights, uttering all sorts of nnkind epithets, such as, You're the man that cot np Dr - Parkman," "You're a murderer," "Yun're - a blood - thirsty scoundrel," &.c &c. Mr. Andrews had no other knowledge of this matter except what he heard from, Dr. Webster. He oue night placed two men in Ihe passage way that lead to the cells, where ihey remained until mornin;, but heard no unusual or nupleasant noises. The day following this tbe Doctor repealed hi complaint to Mr. Andrews, saying that "last night the same outrages had been repeated." Mr. Andrews kaoiring this not to be true, of course concludes that the Doctor' imagination ia so wrooght upon, or that his dreams are of sneb an unpleasant character, as Id produce in some degree mental aberralioa. Dr. Webster ha loat much ofthe buoyancy of spirit that sustained hiui when be first becalm, an inmate of the jiil. Boston Mail. Thi iaa very singular statement. We had been led to believe that notwithstanding the report that the recent Investigation by tbe Coronor multiplied the evidence against Dr. Wihtii, he iu jiulaiued a perfectly tranquil demeanor. Should ihe above be a tue picture of the state of aSair u Levarett street jail, may it not have a look to defence to be set up on the score cf insanity I Albany Argus.
