Rotterdam Brig Neptune Valparaiso Barque Cornelia, Kio de Juiiro Barque PORT OF BALTIMORE, August 2 THE SUN. The Syracuse Explosion. Resolutions have been adopted by the Coroner's Jury, at Syracuse, setting forth that the twenty-five persons who were killed, came to their deaths by the explosion of 27 or 28 kegs of gunpowder, the property of William Malcolm, and Albert A.

Hudson, of Syracuse, which was secretly stored by Albert A. Hudson and Charles Goings, with the knowledge and consent of Wm. Malcolm, number of limbs; one eye ii a deep black, and the other as deep a blue. The animal has been preserved in liquor, so that those who doubt can establish their faith in the existence of the phenomenon. Stealing the Sun.

A gentleman on the Point complained yesterday that his Sun had been taken from his door for several mornings, and seemed to be amazed that any one should steal the paper when every body took it. Dont steal, if you please, the light of the glorious orb is intended for all. Profanity. Catharine McKean and Mary Ann King, two degraded white women, were imprisoned, with great propriety the night of the 2Gth inst, for using profane and obscene language in the streets. Jlioting.

Richard Burk, with his wife, and Edward Snowden and wife, were tucked up in the western district watch house, charged with surprised at this robbery. We believe there is at this time a league of the most skilful and daring burglars in this country, whose operations are conducted by concert from one end of the Union to the other. They arc aided too by an unprincipled police, in the larger cities, who by collision share the rewards aud screen the rogues from justice. have been anticipating that they would come down upon some of the towns or cities in our State, and warned the public to be watchful. The Banks in Danville had nonight watch, as it seems to us they ought to have had, particularly since the unsuccessful attempt mado a short time since on the Virginia Branch in that town.

This robbery should cause every Branch Bank to employ a guard. We trust that the utmost vigilance may be ex ercised to detect and punish the robbers; and let iio Justice Wiley be permitted to act a part in the matter." Napier's Peninsula War.

The Dcerslayer, or iht War Path. This is a navel by J.

Fennimore Cooper, "the Walter Scott of America," the author of several of the best prose works of fiction that claim American parentage, The author says in his preface, that the favorable manner in which the more ad vanced career, and the death of Leather Stock ing, were received, has created, in his mind at least, a sort of necessity for giving some account of his younger days. And, pray, who that has read the early works of Cooper, or indeed any of his works, would not rejoice in the opportu- nity of becomisg acquainted with Leather Stock ing in his "younger days?" Few, we apprehend, except those who have imbibed certain unjust and dishonest prejudices against the author, which had their origin in any and every thing save his merits as an American writer of fiction one whose only fault, apart from the entertainment of certain principles having no necessary connexion with his literary character, was a too faithful adherence to supposed origi nals, in certain pictures which his fancy had drawn; but whose real fault was the entertainment of the principles referred to. Cooper is, however, too firmly fixed in the public estimation as an American writer, who has contributed largely to the establishment of the literary character of his country, to be seriously injured by jealous rivals, infinite in their inferiority, or by ephemeral critics, impotent in their assaults; and Deerslayer will be read with interest, despite all efforts at depreciation of the author.

From a statement in the Peoria Register, wc learn that a few weeks since, a young man named George Fisher, of Henderson county, was taken out of bed at night by a band of ruffians, one half of his head shaved, his body tarred and feathered, and then, with his hands tied behind him, put into a canoe and set adrift in the Mississippi river, with a threat that they would kill him if he came ashore.

After floating a few miles, Fisher contrived to free his hands and reach the shore. He immediately returned home, and caused some of the ruffians to he apprehended, who, after due examination, were bound over to appear at the next court two of thein in bonds of $1200 each, the others from 100 to $S00 each. The remaining four ruffians made their escape to the Iowa side of the river, and there succeeded in rallying a mob, who came over in a ferry boat and recaptured Fisher. This was in the middle of the afternoon. Fisher was taken some seventy yards from the road, tied with a chain and rope, and a guard of two men, armed with knives and pistols, placed over him, who told him that if he hallooed, instant death w8 his portion.

Here he remained till dark, when he was taken to the second island above IUoominglon, and flogged by four men until his back, legs and arms were cut into welts. He was then presented with a lie-bill to sign; refusing to do which, he was again put into a canoe, in which was a larre stone, and set afloat. He, however, effected a landing a few miles below Burlington. Close ok the St-B-TiiEAsnv in New York. The New York CoinmcrcUl states that on Wednesday, Robert C.

Cornell, the Sub-Trea. surer at New York, basing received instructions to that effect, closed his accounts, and paid over the money of the Government in his possession, to the Merchant's Bank, which was selected by the Secretary of the Treasury as the r. sent depository of the public funds. As an instance prompt ncss, the Commercial adds, thfit the instructions were received in the morning the money was paid over receipts taken the wholo business closed, and advices of the final closing cf the Sub-Treattury in New York forwarded to the Secretary of the Treasury, by the mail of the afternoon. Lihkkated fcsLAVm One thousand dollars are wanted to transfer eighteen urines to Li-berii.

Thos. WaUacc, of 1 lemingsburg, recently died, and by his will liberated eighteen slaves on condition that the American Colonization Society send them to Liberia, in Africa.

Another Extensive Bank nonnf-m i j-tsards of Ninety-two Thousand Dollars learn from the Kiehmond Compiler, received last night, that the Danville Branch of the Farmers' Bank of Virginia, was entered on Saturday or Sunday night last by means of false keys, and robbed of ninety-two thousand one hundred and thirty-five dollars. Fortunately for the Dank, $72,135 of this large amount were mutilated notes, issued by the Branch, stamped on the face "Cancelled," which it is hoped may aid in the detection of the burglars.

A reward of $5,000 is offered for the apprehension and conviction of the robber or robbers, and the recovery of the money, or in proportion to the amount recovered. The Compiler further says: "We are not Fayette gTnEtr, oi'POBitk Orf Hotel. George DunkcL Joseph II. Varmun. A-NOT1CK.

One of the ablest periodical writers of Great Britain, speaking of the ambition in that country of adopting professional life of all kinds, and of the rush, if we may call it, into the professions el physic, and divinity," thus points the mind's eye to the general consequences, or some oi ttiem; But thousands have dkd of broken hearts- in these pursuits, thousands who would have been himnv behind the plough, or opulent beLind the counter; thousands in the desperate struggles of i VuanKleSS iuuk vpwl uic ittiyiiuiiy a life of manual labor with perpetual envy; and thousands, by a worse late still, are to necessities which degrade the principles of honor within them, accustom thein to humiliating modes of obtaining subsistence, and make vp, by administering to the vices of society, the livelihood which was refused to their legitimate exertions. These remarks are preg-nant with meaning, and the meaning so evident as to almost render it unnecessary to add a single word.

But we lave appropriated them why? For the simple reason that they have an extensive field for application in our own country. There is here a perfect rush into the "professions" not indeed so much into divinity as medicine, nor so much into this as into law, which last has come to be the chief stepping-stone to political distinction. Indeed there might, we doubt not, be found thou-candi of fathers and mothers in our own land vto, each as soon as their boy has commenced 4he study of his Latin grammar, begin to dnw ur him in their fond fancy pictures of political elevation. They see in the collegiate diploma a warrant of a national diplomatic mission to some of the foreign courts; and in the speaker at a town meeting or a political gathering, or in the chairman of either, their imagination discovers a future Speaker of the House of Representatives, or President of the United States. Such incipient greatness is not to be crushed the bud, by being sent into the field, the factory or the workshop; and the consequences of the decision based on such parental visions, are with Tery few exceptions utterly ruinous to the objects of such bright anticipations.

Hundreds of thousands have been thus led to cherish hopes impossible of fulfilment, and have fallen under the pressure of thwarted ambition and disappointed expectation embittered in mind, -their feelings soured, and fancying themselves the victims of an unfeeling and upid world, unable to appreciate their excellence, and unworthy to be blessed with their transcendant talents. Pride a false tiriile. vanilv am) In'. uorance, constitute unitedly the chief cause ef this evil, and fill the "three professions" with useless members, with mere lumber ivith individuals who in some other occupations might prove to be good citizens, and tolerable if not profitable members of society. Pride also, aided more or less liy avarice, Las filled the mercantile ranks to an injurious degree of repletion; while these, together with the prevalent desire to live without labor, to possess the fruits undergoing the toil of productive effort, have begotten a host of speculators and their "camp-followers," and attendant drones, that cover the land like an army of locusts, eating up every green thing that the earth gave to the hand of industry.

All this seems to militate against a favorite theory of ours, that when any profession, occupation, or line of business, should become so full that membership would be found unprofitable, it would to receive accessions but the contradiction is only in seeming. If the general mind and moral system were in a right frame and a healthy condition, our theory, wc feel confident, would be found correct; but as they are now trained and constituted, the whole current of correct lis is turned aside, aiid made -Jlo run in unnatural committing all sorts of depredation, carrying destruction in iU course, and leaving des lation behind it. And this must continue to be the case, until good sound princ. ei, and common honesty, lake the lace of idc, Nl var.ity, avarice and their consequences. When economy shall live dethroned extravagance, and the lain, simple and unaffected social principles, that spring naturally from 111'! il of a pure republican system, shall have banishe 1 "fashionable" folly from the land, then, and not before, will labor, no matter how hard-fisted, be held as honorable as any of the "professions," and honest industry take pitcedencc of in point of respectability.

The day may conic when this will be the case; nay, it must conic, if the people will it, if not, they will never see it. In answer to a question put in yesterday's paper by a correspondent, in relation to the probable redemption of the Tide Water Canal notes, another correspondent says no arrange. menU have yet been made, but he think the President and Directors of the Company pre men of too much principle to allow our fellow citizens to suffer longer with their miserable shinplaster trash.

And that the lives sacrificed would in all probability have been saved, if Charles Goings and Albert A. Hudson had made prompt and.ef-ficient exertions in giving notice of the danger; and that the conduct of Elislia F. Wallace, in contradicting the reports relative to the storage of gunpowder, without absolute knowledge that no powder was in the building on fire, was in discreet and highly censurable. And is that all! The matter should not stop there.

Malcolm and Hudson and Goings should be tried for their lives. Their violation of law has been produc tive of the death of thirty persons, and yet a simple vote of censure is all the punishment proposed. We agree with the N. York Herald, that "they have transgressed the law have been the means of hurrying a large number of their fellow beings into eternity, and should be punished as an example, to prevent, if possible, any accidents of the kind in future," A meeting was held at Syracuse on Monday raise funds for the use of the unfor tunate families, whose protectors were so suddenly taken from them, and $1300 was collect ed of this sum the guilty men gave $1000. "The Right Way." The New York Com mercial thinks the plans adopted by the candidates for Governor in Maryland, of "stumping" it through the State, the right way, and adds, "we would that all our nominating committees, which are but so many intriguing cabals, were done away with, and that the candidates for every elective office should be presented for the suffrages of the people by a different process, and be compelled to meet the electors face to face, and exhibit their qualifications for the places to which they aspire." The ability to address a populous assemblage, is not 'always evidence of qualifications for office.

A man may make a very excellent governor, and yet be unable to speak a half dozen sentences with fluency in any assembly. Would the Commercial be willing to lose all the thinking and acting talent of the country, because the possessors have not the confidence necessary to a dis play upon the stump? There are many first rate men who would cut but a sorry figure in a dis cussion from the stump, but who are fitted to adorn any executive station. The Barque Clarion, it is stated in the New York Courier, has been chartered by govern ment for the coast survey, and will, in company with the Consort, leave for the East in a few days. It is anticipated that the barque will form a very useful auxiliary, and the advantage of the propeller will be fully tested. LOCAL MATTERS.

Accident. Thomas B. Stumph, of Wooster county, Ohio, met with an accident yesterday morning which, though not immediately accom panied with serious consequences, furnished an instance of fortunate and almost miraculous preservation of life. At the corner of Green and Baltimore streets, he got into a buggy wagon, having a colored man for a driver. The horse became restive, when the colored man was directed to leap out and take him by the bridle.

This he did, but did it in such an awkward manner, that the horse broke loose and dashed off down Baltimore street at the top of his speed. When he arrived nearly opposite Mr. Charles Goddard's tavern, the young man was thrown out between the horse and fore wheel. By a singular piece of good fortune, the horse at this instant, leaped from the street to the pavement, and thus passed over the fallen man between the two wheels. The horse pursued his flight at the same rate to the corner of Baltimore and Eutaw where, in changing his course, he ran the wheel against the curbstone, broke the hinder axletree, and fell on the pavement.

Though not much injured, he was so frightened that he fell the second time from mere incapacity to use his limbs. The young man was taken into Charles Goddard's, and Dr. W. S. Love called in to examine the injuries.

The Doctor gave his opinion, that the head was entirely uninjured the weight of the body having been thrown on the left shoulder. No limbs were broken, and it is thought he will soon be well. Thcescape was singularly fortunate. Serious Affray. colored woman named Cordelia Neal, presented herself yesterday before Justice Wright, to enter complaint against Mackcy Sanders, also colored, for an assault and battery.

The complainant, however, had just then more need of medical than of legal aid, and was directed to the Western Dispensary, whence, after having her wounds dressed, she returned. Her own statement was unnecessary to show the magistrate that she had been engaged in a serious encounter. The parties are neighbours, as appeared, and both employed as washerwomen, Cordelia, the complainant, was in the possesion and use a clothes line which Mackcy said belonged to her. After some few passages in wordy war, Mackcy resolved to cut the Gordian knot with a large knife. A scuffle ensued, which must have been excessively fierce, if wc may judge from the appearance as well as the statements of the complainant.

Cordelia managed, for some time, to avoid the knife of her u.ilant, but, at last, received a cut across the left arm, immediately above the laid it open three inches in length and doubtless to the bone. She then fortunately perhaps, seized the knife with the right hand, when it was suddenly drawn from her, cutting her hand to the bono wherever it touched. Mackcy Sanders has not been arrested, but we hope will soon be, and taught the danger as well as impropriety of indulging passions of such an implacable and fiendish character. Natural. A singular animal, supposed to be some hitherto undiscovered variety of the cat genus, was found yesterday lying in the yard attached to the dwelling of Mrs.

Hubbard, at the corner of Wilk and Washington streets, Fell's Point. Its length is four inches; the head bears a strong resemblance to that of a dog; it has eight legs and two tails, and is furnished with but two cye, but those so large as to make up for tho deficiency, compared with the rioting and disturbing the peace of the people in Park street, and in the morning committed to jail by Justice Steuart. Bound Over. John II. Baker was bound over by Justice Jones yesterday to keep the peace towards his wife.

His pills arc the result of many years of inces sant observation ot diseases, their causes and cure, ana he has beyond doubt approached nearer the invention of a universal medicine than any one else.
