Sidonia the Sorceress: the supposed destroyer the whole reigning ducal house of Pomerania. By William Meinhold; author of "Tho Amber Witch.' ' Harper & Brothers. Library edition, Mr. Meinhold created a great sensation some years ago by the publication of a novel called "The Amber Witch." It purported to be an ancient German work, and s admirably did the author counterfeit the entire "form and pressure of the times" he undertook to depict, so thoroughly imbued was his mind with the manners and customs and dialects of that period, that the highest critical authorities in Europe were caught, and "The Amber Witch" was received in England as a veritable history. The surprising powers thus'developed by Mr. Meinhold, have induced him to try his hand in tho same field, and using Dr. Theodore Plonnies as a stalking-horse, he proceeds to lift tho veil from the seventeenth century, and introduces his readers to almost as intimate an acquain tance with the times, as though they had lived in their presence, in this point of view, "Si donia the Sorceress" is one of the most power ful fictions of the day, and must command the attention of all who wish to know how the world went on two centuries ago. The history of Sidonia is full of interest, and we commend the work as one from which we have derived boih nrofit and pleasure. These works may be found at the bookstore of Morton & Griswold. We are indebted to the kindness of C. Hagan & Co. for copies of Sidonia the Sorceress, by the author of the celebrated "Amber Witcn, and The Ogilvies, forming Nos. 131 and 133 of Harper's Library of select novels. We are also under obligations to Hagan & Co. for the inspection of Godey's Lady's Book for January, 1850. It is filled with embellish ments of the richest character, far exceeding anything- that the taste and enterprise of Godey has enabled him to present his readers witn heretofore. There are 32 engravings, and number of them are of the highest quality for magazine works. The contributions to this num ber are of unusual excellence. Now is the time to subscribe for the maga zines, and we commend Godey's as one hard to beat. ita-The Franlfoit Commonwealth and the Ken tuckv Yeoman are the only two papers in Ken tucky that have not expressed disapprobation of the intolerable propensity of the members ot tne Convention to talk, and of their indisposition to work as their constituents had a right to expect. Tho Locb Yeoman bespatters the Whig members with praise, while the Whig Commonwealth does the same kind part by its Loco friends; and they boih agree that the long speeches and windy words are exactly what the "dear people" want. The Commonwealth and Yeoman are partners in-business, and the longer the speeches are and the longer the Convention remains in session, the more money they will make. This accounts for the "milk in the cocoa nut." Probably it is a part of the contract between the public printers and the Convention that the members of the latter should receive a certain quantity of puffing, no matter what they did. K3PLt. L. Dunlap, Dr. Wm. JenniDgs, Dr. Geo. H. Mason and O. P. Vanghan arrived here from Lancaster yesterday, on their way to California.

A little sou of Mr. John Woods, merchant at Albion, Edwards coun ty, 111., was burned to death lasi Thursday. The parents had gone to a funeral leaving the children at home, who got to making bon-fires of Bhavings. Q-The editor of the bhawneetown (111.) Ad vocate, a rampant Locofoco paper, is still sore over the election of Gen. Shields to the United States Senate. In his last number he says: Sbbpdisb. Haldetnan, of the "Louisville Cou-rier." was recently much surprised at the "Ad vocate's" appearing in mourning. We venture that he would have been still rnore surprised had ne Known tnat amerent tactions oi our Legisla ture succeeded m electing a tawniog, lying syco pliant lo the United States Senate, over one who hss devoted his whole lite and energies m advo cating the interest ot Illinois. True it is that "the race is not always to the swift, g.or the battle to the strong." And it is also true, that un principled demagogues, often succeed over good and tried men. Awful Suicide A Lady carried over the Falls of Niagara ' From the Buffalo Morning Express of the 28th we learn that, on the evening of the 26th, a Mrs. Miller, who had been spending a few days at the Eagle Hotel, at Niagara; precipitated herself into the rapids above, by which she was carried over the Cataract. She took her shawl, cut it into strings, out of which she formed a sort of rope and by it let herself down from the bridge that extends to Goat Island, into the flood which boreher to the abyss below. She represented herself as adaugh terof Senator Norvell, of Miohigan, and as the wife of an officer in the army now in Florida. She wrote three letters, one to her father, one to her husband and one to the proprietor of the hotel, by which it appeared that the act was premeditated. She was undoubtedly insane, as she cut off a por tion of her hair and left it with her watch and jew elry in her room. This is one of the most desperate cases of sui cide on record, and with all its horror there is a; wild romance about it, thai makes the blood run cold.,.,,. ITae following is a cony of the letter addr'essed by airs, wilier to mr. white, of the Eagle Hotel: To the Proprietor of the Eagle Hotel: My mind is made up. I have no wish to live any longer. I shall go where my body will never be recovered, jxo one shall gaze on my mangled remains. Please take care of my two little boys, till ihey can be sent to Detroit, where their grand parents reside. They are the sons of Major Miller 01 tne Army, now in riunaa, ana granasons 01 Hon.

The following additional we copy from the American of Saturday morning: At 11 o'clock yesterday .morning Mr. Clay, in ccoidance with previous arrangement, tookhia position between two of the parlors on the lower floor of the hotel. Both the capacious rooms were immediately filled almost to suffocation, and the wish being loudly expressed from all parts of mo room mat tue veneraoie statesman scoum aa-dressthem.

All who were acquainted with these territories, he thought, must have reached the conviction to which his own mind h.d heen brought, that under no possible circumstances was slavery likely to be introduced into the teriitoiiescf California or New Mexico. The climate, the character of the country and its inhabitants, and their industrial pursuits all forbade the Likelihood of slavery ever bemgintroduced there. Thatouestion had. however. divided the people to an unexampled degree and created animosities to a most lamentable extent, uaine one side me prompmon oi the introduction ot slavery into these territories is urged with a reso uteness and perseverance wrocn wouict mm- cate that those who urge it really believe that If this pro' hibitlon is not passed, slavery would be Introduced.

At the conclusion of Mr. Clay's remarks, nine cheers were called for and given with a zest which evidenced the enthusiasm that prevailed. As soon as the applause had in a degree subsided, Mr. Clay intimated that he nan something lurther to sav and silence being obtained, be jocularly remarked that he had been in a service all his life in which he had been used to upsets, and he begged to re mind those present tnat on his recent tourney h was upset in a stage near Cumberland, and that his right arm had not recovered trom the effects o; the sprain then reoeived.

A passage was then opened and for nearly two hours Mr. Clay kept his stand whilst an almost continuous succession ot visiters passed before him, all taking him by the hand, whilst with many ne exenaneen a iew remarks. The address which he made was uttered wi much spirit, his voice seeming as lull and melo. dious as we ever heard it, whilst his whole ap. pearance betokened one who is enjoying a "green old age.

We are just inreceipt of the following voluntary tribute to the curative power of Wistar's Balsam of Wild Cherry, from E. Hall, M. D., of Mt. Cle mens, miclngan, who is a physician ot high stand-ing, and an extensive Druggist. Mt. Clbicehs, Mich., Oct. 29, 1849. To the afflicted this may certify that Mrs. B. Roberts of this village, three or four weeks after confinement, was attacked with a violent cough. and great prostration, and seemed hastening to the grave with fearful rapidity. 1 advised her to use nistar's Balsam of Wild Cherry she did so, and with that yaluable medicine alone, in the space of three or four weeks, was restored to health, and is now a living proof of the vaiue of wistars Balaam 01 vvim unerry." E. HALL, Physician and Druggist. Read on and be convinced stiil further of the remarkable virtues of Wistar's Balsam of Wild Cherry. Messrs. Sandfobd & Paer Gents; As a matter of justice to you, and for the benefit ot the public, i would offer the following statement of a oure effected by your medicine, known as "Wistar's Balsam of Wild Cherry.'.' In the Spring of 1847 my wife vyas severely attacked with Peripneumonia, or Pleurisy, which resulted in a deep seated pain in the side, accompanied with a severe cough; she was attended by some of the'best physicians in Chicago, but to no purpose: for weeks she suffered, without relief, coughing incessantly night and day. I came to the conclusion that all the remedies known to the physicians could not help her, and was induced lo try your" Wild Cherry." I procured one bottle, aud commenced using it according to directions; before it was all gone the cough stopped the pain in her side left her, and with the aid 01 another bottle, eh'e was restored to perfect health. In consideration of these circumstances, I would recommend it to the public as a valuable medicine. Yours, respectfully, K. N. GAERATT. Goand Kapids, Mich., Oct. 8, 1849.

LOUISVILLEf THURSDAY. DECEMBER 6, 1849 A Fhibnb Indeed. We are greatly indebted to out excellent -friend W. B. Kobihson, Esq., of South Onion, Ky-., for his efficient exettiona in our behalf. In a letter to ua the other day, en closing the money for several new subscribers, he B&vs: "These make thirty-six subscribers I have sent you, and I am trying to make the number forty,' This is doing pretty well, when it is considered that South Union is still quite a small village, and it shows that the good people thereabouts have both taste and judgment. New Books. The Harpers have politely set us copies of the following books: The History of the United States of America, from the discovery of the Continent to the organ isation of government under the Federal Consti tution. By Richard Hildreth. in 6 volumes New York: Harper & Brothers. : We have already given our readers our opinions of the vneritsof Mr. Hildreth's "History of the United States of America," and have explained, at length the principles upon which it is written. We have never read an American history with a tythe of the satisfaction we have derived from this work. Its cold, philosophic tone, its'analysing spirit, and its diligent pursuit of accuracy make it one of the most correct pictures ever drawn of the eventful march of a nation. Twelve closely printed pages, filled with mere titles of authorities consulted for this work, may be looked upon as an earnest of the fullness of the materials used.in constructing this History. In all its parts, in its details, inferences and reflections, this work stands a monument to the reputation of Mr. Hildreth, of which he has reason to be proud. He has performed his responsible task with the industry of a laborer, and the hand of a master, and he deserves to be held in lasting esteem and reverence for the light he has thrown upon the early history of the colonies, and of the United States. Those who cherish the memories of the Pilgrim Fathers, of the pioneers in Virginia, the Carolinas, Georgia, Maryland, Pennsylvania, and New York; in who3e minds the Revolution is embalmed in its strength and beauty, and who love to trace the onward march of a great people will find the chapters of this History pre-eminently adapted to fill their desires. We can say nothing more correct of its value, than that the work is, in every way worthy of its theme. We earnestly hope that Mr. Hildreth will not close his historical labors with the third volume of this work. He closes upon the threshhold of a great subject. Let him go on and pourtray tie early constitutions of- the States; the workings of the Federal Constitution, and the changes that the people of the different States have made in their State governments. Mr. Pitkin's "Civil History of the United States," goes just fa enough to show the richness of the field. Will not Mr. Hildreth undertake the cultivation of this fallow land? In addition to the general excellence of this work, we must refer to one merit that deserves special commendation. We allude to the co pious and admirable index at the end of the third volume. This is a feature of a book too often neglected, but in the present case it is set forth in a style that may be looked upon as a model. The Harpers have done their duty, as publish ers, in a style of excellence that is exclusively their own Glimpses of Spain; or, notes of an unfinished tour in 1847. By S. T. Wallis. Harper & Biothers. The country of Ferdinand and Isabella, and the adopted land of Christopher Columbus, must ever be a source of lively interest to the Ameri can people. We feel a tie, binding us to Spain, that time cannot weaken, and we love to look in upon those who were a great nation, while our country was covered with its primeval forests. We love to look upon the present condi tion of those who developed a new world, and gave a greatness to others-, which they could not retain themselves. The world has been abundantly supplied with books about Spain, but very few of them ale reliable. Ford's "Handbook" is usually consid cred among the best of the books on Spain, but its prejudices are obvious, and its taste is often execrable. Slidell's two works on Spain are admirable in their way, but the one before us, bearing the modest title of " Glimpses of Spain , " is one ofthe most satisfactory volumes wo know of on the subject. We feel that we are looking upon a truthful picture while we read this book; its pages are instinct with life, and a truly Cath olic spirit presides ovorthe pen of the author. The style is just what it ought to be, lively, gay and dignified. The corrections of the errors of Irving and Prescottare made with commendable taste, and throughout the work the author shows himself to be a gentleman in the fullest sense of that term. We cordially commend Mr. Wallis's work on Spain, as one eminently adapted to in-utruct, please and benefit the reader. The history of Alfred the Great. By Jacob Abbott Harper & Brothers. We have so frequently spoken of the rare merits of this series of histories for children, that our readers are very familiar with Mr. Abbott's claims to the public regard; Hehasdrawn up a number of histories in an 'abridged form,, vp ell adapted to the capacity of children. The details are full enough, the style is simple, concise and pointed, and perfeot chastehess characterises the selections and management of them. Of all the various characters, Mr. Abbott has drawn in his gallery, Alfred the Great is the one most fitted tofeel the charm pfhis narrative powers, and; to arouse the thinking faculties of children, and Mr. Abbott has handled his excellent theme most admirably. The entire series are worthy the attention of parents who wish to create in their children a taste for useful knowledge.
