i if DOMESTIC. From tlto Massachusetts Journal. Our dates from Vera Cruz are to the SOth of Oct. Co!. Alvarez in favor o( Guerrc-.'Oj had defeated the principal army of ltustamente in the South under Geri. Armijo, and put him to death. Bravo was in full retreat upon Mexico. The party of'U uerrero are in considerable force and appear to intimidate the Government. Guerrero is moderate and humane. lie liberated prisoners who made part of Bra-vo's army, and they embraced his cause. We should think it likely that he, a usur per, will overthrow the Government of the usurper Bustamente. Thus usurpation succeed one another like reform in ours Post Office. Colombia. We have dates from this country up to Nov. 1st. from Carthagena. The accounts in relation to the characters of men and the wishes of the people, are very contradictory. Our readers have been infirmed of the renunciation of office by President Musqueira, and theassump- nun r.ivi.-iuniy oi tneuuues 01 mai uiuce by Gen. Urdaneta, (theS. Jl. Talleyrand eo called.) The N. Y. Daily Advertiser contains some interesting private letters, which iook ill lor liohvarand his uovern-' merit; the last is dated liogota, 28th Sept This represents the Liberals as having left Bogota after its capture by Bolivar's party,- which was the result ofthe treachery ol Gen. Velez,whom with his brother, Bolivar improved to havebribed helbre he left Bogota on his pretended sell-banishment, had retired into the provinces and Were there mak.'ng head powerfully with most ol the country people on their side. Cuicedo late Vice President, has also taken up arms against Bolivar, who is at Sab'ana Larga, about 72 miles from Carthagena. He appears to be cooly and quietly .driving the game into his toils. The letter writer from Bogota begs the American press to say something in behalf of free principles and the liberal party, lor the press is no longer lree except for priests and monks to abuse them. On the other hand it is averred that the people are generally for Bolivar, and that even Venezuela is sick ol separation, and demand Boiivar and re-union. We make one extract from the private letters. t -, Bogota, 28M Sept. The fate of war lias been lavorable to the rebels; and ta- king advantage ;of victory, they have thrown bur President from his chair, placing Urdaneta in his place until the arrival of Simon Magtisl Generals Lopez and Obando, who command in the Department ofthe Cauca, have refused obe-dii -.ce to the usurpers, and are on their jnarch lor this capital, with two thousand veterans. They have already occupied Neyba and Purification, which have ever been faithful to the legitimate government. The Governors here are publish ing gazettes luil of falsehood, ta deceive simpletons. This very day they say that news has come that Venezuela, discontented a ad weary of her revolutions, is caiunsr lor LSokvar as her savior!. But we positively know that all this is imposture, invented to intimidate the inhabitants of Cauca and the liberals in Bogota. We learn by the Waterloo, from Carthagena, (which place she left on the 1st inst.) that Bolivar was at the head of his army, had taken Rio Hache, after a severe action, and was proceeding against Venezuela. In eonsequence of the events in Bogota, namely, the upsetting ofthe government, Gen. Bolivar, was called upon to take upon himself the command, civil and military; until a Congress could meet. General Urdaneta has been named pro tern, to manage matters in Bogota, until Bolivar's arrival in the capital. Similar resolutions having been entered into in Carthagena, Panama, Antioqua,and other places, the Liberator consented to put himself at the head of affairs, and for the purpose left Carthagena some weeks since and proceeded to Selidena, a small town on the Magclalena river, where it was supposed he would remain until he learnt the fate of an expected engagement at Rio la Hache, which revolted some time since and joined Venezuela. It was tho'i by some, that after reducing Rio la Hache to obedience, the expedition will proceed against Mara;aybo. But this is mere conjecture nothing certain is known. Every thing was quiet at Bogota by the last accountsr No late news from the Pacific. Bolivar's troops had taken possession of Rio la Hache no resistance of any consequence having been made to them. JV. Y. Gaz Last Thursday was a proud day for East Jersey. On that day a full and successful trial was made on the Locks and inclined planes on the Morris Canal between Dover and Newark. Five boats left Dover for Newark on that day, laden with iron and ore, and passed the inclined Planes with so much ease and facility that the concourse of people assembled on I he occasion were fully satisfied of their superiority over Locks for a great ascent in a canal. The first boat that passed the Plane at Rockway, was the Eaton, if Dover, with a cargo ol 12 1-2 tons, and 48 passengers. It passed in 15 minutes, a descent of 52 feet, the machinery being nem, a full force of power was not applied. The Dover, of Dover, with a cargo of 18 tons, and several passengers, next passed in seven minutes, and the remaining boats in the same time. Two boats from Newark, with merchandize lor Lo-sey and Wood, and stone coal, &c. lor the Dover Company, ascended the Plane in the average lime of 7 1-2 minutes. At Booneton Falls, where the extensive iron works of Messrs. Greene and Wetmore are established, the second boat ascended the Plane in eight minutes, a lift of eighty feet. The superiority of inclined Planes over Lockage, - for heavy lifts, has now been made manifest. On the Erie Canal it requires 15 minutes for a boat to pass a lock ol ten leet lift on the Morris Canal a boat can ascend a lift eight times as great in half the time ! Morristown Jersey man. The Inclined Planes ofthe Morris Canal, for example, have an aggregate lift ol 1440 feet, which if Locks were used, would detain a boat 24 hours in every voyage from Eaton to Newark; where-as'by the Planes the detention will only amount to three hours and twelve minutes in all, making a saving of nearly 21 hours in every voyage, f inallv, it is re marked that to the Company, the use ol the Inclined Planes will be attended with a savins of more tha?i half in the expense of construction, and of more than three- fourths in that of attendance. Eagle, Narrow Escape. In the administration of criminal justice, we are informed that the following circumstances occur red. A young man had been arrested on the charse of knowingly passing a coun terfeit bank note the grand jury had found a true bill against him and he was placed on his trial. The evidence in sup port of the prosecution was strong; the note had been passed in a way to create suspicion; the prisoners explanations were embarrassed and unsatisfactory; and little doubt seemed to remain ol his conviction. The evidence was closed excepting the examination ol a clerk of the bank, on which the forgery was supposed to have been committed, lor the purpose ol show ing that the note was spurious. The court were detained a short time,, heat at length arrived; the note was placed in his hands, he examined it carefullv, and pronounced it good. The accused was of course immediately acquitted. Journal oj Law Party- News. For this article we are beginning to leel the most thorough dis gust. It is lamentable that we can put no conhdence in partizan statements,even ol lacts. VV esaid tast week that a Jack son Senator was elected from Vermont and we said so upon the authority, of what claims to be a leading and respecta hie newspaper in iew xork. JNow we have everv reason to believe that the aforesaid Senator is a Clay man. Wedes pise this pitiful system of partv falsehood In the name of heaven, give us facts cor rectly, whatever you may do with infer ences. No good fate ever attended a liar and whether he belongs to our party or some other, we heartily wish him in th pillory. Matters haae really arrived at that pass, that nothing like truth can be gotten at in party news. Com. Joar.

The society voted to express their warmest thanks to the Rev. John B. Hetherington lor his appropriate discourse delivered on the occasion like wise voted that the thanks ol the society he tendered to the venerable Chairman, Deacon Paul Horn, for discharging the duties devolving on him with so much credit.

Rail Roads. The Baltimore Gazette states, that several gentlemen, recently returned lrom England, inform the edi tor, that the higbesl degree of excitement and even enthusiasm appears to pervade all classes ol people in England in rela tion to these roads, and many extensive ones are contemplated: several ol the ca- na nronrietors cave so d out their rignis to companies, who are about to change these works into rail-ways, and no aount remains there, that a general system of rail roads will at no distant day intersect every part ol the island. . It is stated by these gentlemen that on a partoi the line the cars travel at the rate of about thirty miles the hour, yet such is the ease ofthe motion, that the traveller scarcely per ceives its rapidity, except when he meets a car travelling' in a contrary direction, when the parties passing each other at the rate of .learly CO miles per hour, are maCe sensible ofthe velocity at which they are going.

Steam boat accident. We learn from the Baltimore Chronicle of Saturday,that the Steam boat Charles Carroll, on Thursday evcninjr.onposite Pool's island, was discovered to be on hre, which is supposed to have originated from carelessness in the;engineer, who had retired into the engine house, and was probably asleep at the time the fire commenced, as the door had'to be forced open from the outside. l he hre raged violently and consumed the engine house aud much of the wooden work on that side ofthe vessel, and was only extinguished by cutting through the deck, and by the united and unremitted exertions of the captain, crew ana passengers in supplying water. stereotyped.

I he slate ol f ranee may well excite our hopes and our fears. There i evidently much discontent with the new order of things. Many seem to imagine that nothing ought to satisfy shoit of a down-riaht democracy. This is evidence that so many, at least, are unprepared to be quiet under any government short of a despotism On the other hand, the present government seem to unite a good degree of moderation and firmness a regard to individual rights and to the supremacy ofthe law. They re. ceive, likewise, the cordial support of a ma joritv of the people. How far the restless, discontented, minority may succeed in fo monting discord and producing another ex. plosion, remains to be seen. Of one thing we are confident, the happiness of France, of Europe and of the world, is intimately connected with tho stability of the piesent order of things. If the late revolution shall prove only to have prepared the way for a succession of changes gloMous as it was in itself we mav well regret that it has taken place. The Netherlands still continue in na un settled state; and the prospect that the Bel ians will establish an independent govern ment increases. Spain is annoyed by bands of her own na ive citizens who have been driven into exile and are now gathering on her frontier. Some inroads have been made. Their success in overturning the present government must depend entirely on the degree in which the nation generally are disposed to co-operate with them. That many are wishing to bring about a revolution similar to the late over turn in France, is certain. But whether this is the general sentiment is doubtful; and it is still more doubtfull whether any Lafayette can be found to direct their efforts. . Mexico, Colombia, Venezuela, &c. our Southern neighbors, and, professedly, sister republics as they have been so they are at present, wasting their strength and resources by internal discord or petty warfare with each other.

Among its effects we have witnessed the following: Men not belonging to the church and not before considered as very friendly o the cause of Christ, have manifested much interest in the doings of the church and in cases of discipline have influenced their de. cisions; In antimasonic churches, members have acquired a controling influence, who before were not . regarded as eminent for piety or christian prudence. In such churches, members wbo have been long considered eminent for humility, piety and a uniform, consistent christian course, have ceased to be regarded their influence is gone. In such churches, less concern has been manifested than formerly for tho conversion of sinners. In such churches, absence from public worship and from the Lord's table has been more common than formetly. In such churches, ministers, whether ma. sons or not, have found an unusual remis- ness in affording them a support. In such chnrches, a strong disposition has been manifested to destroy the peace and harmony of such churches as were at peace among thumselves. p CENSUS OF Towns.
