A correspondent writing to the editor the morning after Jenny -Und s first concert ia New York, says : . You cant appreciate my feeble description. But what a roar and about of applause succeeded that death-like silence ! Jenny left the stage while 14,000 bands, and 7000 voices, and 14,000 feet, to say nothing of canes and hats, sent up such a tumult of approval as mortal never beard. Come and hear ber !

The cane is here placed upon as end less chun, which convey, it into the mill and between the rollers, where it is crushed. When thus deprived of its juice it is conveyed into large rats or tubs, and from thence as it is needed, into the kettles, which occupy a separ ate room.

Thatches of Williston, to Miss Charlotte Sinclair of Jsricho. It is not easy to determine which is the stronger, tbe love of imitating, or the love of differing : . fashion, or sectarianism The for mer is displayed in form and taste : the latter more in substance and essentials. To which of these does the New England festival belong . Undoubtedly to both, partaking of the taste of one, and the substance of the other. This must be the reason, that the Governors of State can never agree iu setting apart the same day for the celebration of this most interesting of anniversaries. No matter. . : Opposition as well as adversities, has its uses. t In consequence of this variety ot appointments, we snail keep up a perpetual flame of gratitude for the remainder of the year, beginning with the first lighting of the fire in North Carolina on the 14th November, and ending with the last flickering of its expiring embers in the boreal piues of Maine on tne-.shh of December.- -a -t , ; - Aldng the intermediate space, between these distant outposts, tbe incense of thanksgiving will be Jen successively to ascend from thousands of domestic altars for the mercies of the year.-., New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Con necticut and Maryland will celebrate the feast on the mm or November ; Vermont on tbe oth of December ; New York,' New Jersey and Pennsylvania on tbe I2ih of the same month. By. thatjUme Christmas will be at band to pro long the chant of praise j and Christendom will thus 'close the year, in merriment at least, we hope in cheerful gratitude. I Some of tbe infe rior tribes- must suffer, that we may enjoy. 11 no unnecessary evil be inflicted.

AT TWO DOLLARS A YEAR. w ' ; ' A Olf the first of January next, commences s New Series of this copious, comprehensive and elegantly printed Family Newspaper, which is now acknowledged to be the indiapenaibie drawing-room gaieue ot the country. A home is hardly complete, we think we may safely venture to say, without the HOME JOURNAL, which is the Chronicle"" ALL THAT INTERESTS ALL CLASSES OF SOCIETY, and of the intelligence which most enlivens an American Home. New-York is the great centre, and here, at the fountain head of novelty, incident, literature, and foreign news, the Home Journal is printed and published. Its editors, (Geo. P. Morris and N. P. Willis,) devote their entire time, skill and experience, to the task f eivirg, each week, EVERY THING WORTH KNOWING. They parricu. larly keep an eye on all the whims and novelties of new-york society, presenting sketches of the BELLES OF OUR TIME, snd careful portraits of THE DISTINGUISHED PUBLIC CHARACTERS. In addition to this, the utmost pains are taken, by translations from French journals, and by foreign correspondence, to prepare such reports of THE FASHIONABLE GOSSIP OF PARIS, as will exceedingly instruct and amuse. We present to our readers, the facts and outlines of all news. In our literary department, we aim at sketches andreadable criticism, and in our condensations of the fecund productions of the vast newspaper world of England, we aim to avoid the tiresome, and the local, and transfer to our columns the pick ol English information and brilliancy, while we en deavor to select with a true sense of pure morals, true wit, and genuine humor. ' In addition to the above, we propose to eive, in the course of the com-ingvclume.O.NE ENTIRELY tfEW FEATURE, which we think will particularly INTEREST THE LADIES, viz:-A SERIES OF RETUNED LOVE. LETTERS. This being a species of composition that interests all readers, we trust to make the numbers of the Home Journal more eagerly, looked for, and more carefully preserved than e vet We have also new correspondents in London and Paris, who will send us muck that could never reach us through fore gn journals. As a New Year's Present from a Gentleman ta a Lady, The Home Journal is one, of which the remembrance is renew ed evert uxes.and it is unsurpassed as s gilt in good tsete. , . . ..' , .. . Tbsms.
