The following extract of a letter was received by this morning's mail, by a gentleman of this city, from his friend in Philadelphia. " PHILADELPHIA, 33d Jan. 1818. " Melancholy indeed has been the issue of the illness of our much - loved and venerated friend Dr. Wis tar; he was called from ui last evening, a few minutes before 8 at 6 Dr. Physic told me he was barely living, and I returned a few mi nute after his decease. I have now jatt come from the bouse, and learn that bis fuueral take place on Monday, 12 o'clock precisely. "Words cannot express my feelings on the occasion i for years his society has been my great est enjoyment Bat when I look round and see how many will be affected, and bow exteusively the lorn will be felt, I am compelled to think of others as well as myself. - Never will the loss, public and private, be repaired. You can have no conception bow far the anxiety spread ; and all agree, that he was, of all individuals, the one that could least be spared.' From (Ac Democratic Prtu, Jan. 23 Yesterday evening, at half past 8 o'clock, died. aged 56, at his bouse in South - 4lh - street, Philadelphia, Dr. Caspar Wistar, many years a physician of the first eminence in the citv of Phila delphia, and professor of anatomy in the university of Pennsylvania. 1 he loss of this rentleman will be severe! v felt in this city, by all classes of the community. His great knowledge and attention as a physician, the kindness of his tones, the mildness of his manners, rus careful attendance upon the poor, wno couiu noi reward, equally assiduous as upon the rich who could, will long endear him to all wno knew Dr. Wislar in Ibis most useful character. As a professor of anatomr. he has not been e - qualled in this country, and be has been eicelled in no other. . Perfect master not only of the mi - nutiaj of hi prolan ion, but of the most effectual modes of teaching it, his lectures were alwavs crowded. Those students who were not com pelled to attend for the sake of a degree, were induced to attend for the sake of informalioa. The skill and care with which hi subje:ts were prepared and brought forward the simple, neat intelligible style of his lectures the kind and friendly character of hi voice and manner bis anxiety to make his students fully comprehend woat they baa to learn aud his treat success in these endeavors, have long been admired, and will be long remembered. A a scientific man, it will be difficult to re place him in scientific society here. His con stant aim was to promote knowledge of all kinds, in all ways. His house was the hospi table resort of scientific strangers from every quarter of the world his weekly conversation parties through the winter, were the means of concentrating and diffusing every kind of use ful intelligence in the philosophical world, nor will his friends who usually met there ever forget the elegant hospitality of his parties, or the charms of his own conversation that enlivened them. Dr. Wistar had for some years been afflicted by obstructions in the chest, and irreirularities of the pulse. About a week ago, he was sei zed with a low fever, not distinctly character ized as a Typhus, but which with his constitutional complaints, deprived his friends of a man whose society will hardly be replaced, and the community of one of its brightest or naments. Fortign Ullert. The National Advocate of this morning ha undertaken to justify the custom - house officers against the complaints that hare been repeatedly made, of improperly intermeddling with ship letter - bags, and carrying them off to the public store to be first rummaged for smuggled goods. The Advocate contends that tuch are the frauds attempted upon the re venue, by disguising dutiable articles, as news paper packages, or letters, that this mode of detection is absolutely necessary. Admitting for the present that the custom - house has the strict right to examioe the letter bap, surely a regard for the convenience ef the community might suggest some better mode than that Staking them away from the ship and detaining them, sometimes, 48 hours : suspicious - lookine letter and unsuspicious all meeting the same (ate. Letters to tie distributed south or north, miss thereby, sometime one and sometimes two mails, and I need not point out the suposeable consequences, now mnch belter would it be to appoint ah agent to attend in the post - office for the purpose of examining on the spot all surpect - ed letters, and detaining ouly such, till they can be properly searched, and delivering the remainder ? It is certain that the present practice is found pregnant with inconvenience and vexation, and may be attended with serious losses. Infmnu praciictt jmlitt - ifficert.

A motion was made in the Legislature of thi Commonwealth, containing a proposition for establishing by law, nam: for the days of the week, as substitutes tor tne present names, which are sid to be derived from certain Hea then Gods. We would sureest such an amend. ment of the proposition, as will provide for a new appellation for the official recerd of the proceedings of the House, the wordj'ounwi being derived from Vu or Zeus, we breex name or the God Jupiter tor trom uis is de rived the Latin word diet, and rfiumui which in the Italian becomes gtorno, in the French, hour, and in English journal. This amend ment, perhaps, outfit to have tne precedence. ax the derivation is much more clearly traced than that of some of the names proposed to be abolished. We may fairly expect, in the report of this committee, a rare specimen or penological learning. Yet it may be doubted whether they will show any good reason for quarrelling with our illiterate ancestors, tor having named me first djy of the week, and that which we de vote more particularly to the service of the Creator, from the noblest object in creation, and one whose presence alone distinguishes the day from night ; and the other davs of the week from the moon, and other objects es teemed by them the most noble and ilirn fied It is perhaps impossible for us to determine. whether a part of these objects, when their names were appropriated to the days of the week, were regarded as Rods or men i and it is or little consequence to us, so long as tne name cannot deceive any one into the helief. that the day is, or ever was, consecrated to the service or these obscure deities. GRANSVILLE, (Ms.) Jan. 8. WOLF HUNT Jin old tnemuvanqvithtd For some time past the fanners in this and the adjoining towns had suffered serious losses in their flocks of sheep ; several being killed in one night. It was ascertained by the track, and the manner in which the spoiler treated his prey, that these depredations were committed by a wolf, whose haunt must be somewhere in the neighborhood. Uur injured yeomanry were determined, the first opportunity, to hunt down so dangerous a foe. It was discovered early on the moraine of the 5th instant, that he had visited a sheepfold in this vicinity, with his usual success in plunder. Alarm was immediately made, and the enemy was traced into a large swamp, which was soon surrounded by one hundred persons. At the " winding or the born" the company advanced towards the center of the swamp, when the wolf was soon discovered. He was regularly kept at bav. till hi ranze was confined to two or three acres of land.1 In thi situation, the charge of musketry commenced. It was calculated thai more than thirty gun were fired; yet the foe, braving all dangers, broke through the ranks ot the assailants and escaped, though with manifest symptoms ot inconvenience Irom the wounds be had received in the rencounter. Next morning th chase was renewed, when pursuing him a bout a mile from' the scene of action, he was found dead. He appear to have been an old offender, of uncommon sise, and well calculated to do mischief He measured six feet from the nose to the end of the tail, was three feet in height, and weighed eightr - five pounds. Noaroix, Jan. IS, We are politely favoured with the following; letter from the Officers of the frigate United States, to their late commander. Com. John Shaw, and his valedictory to his officers and crew, upon relinquishing the command of that ship in the Mediterranean, to return to the united States. We with great pleasure erive them a place in our columns, satisfied that it must be peculiarly grateful to the people of tins country to see so much cordiality and respect subsisting between individuals composing so essential a part of the national strength and so justly considered the guardian of its rights and its character. To see the relations of parents and child strikingly represented between the commander and the commanded, is a spec tacle calculated to inspire confidence in the friends of the navy and is the surest guarantee ot efficiency against its toes. t ngat United States, Gibraltar Bay, October 19th, 1817.

IX SENATE January 21. The senate took up and concurred in the report of the committee of pension unfavorable to the petition of Lphraim ahaler, Do Lafayette Wilcox, and Alphonso Wetmore, first lieutenant of the sixth regiment United States infan try, stating that, during the late war, while en gaged in action with the enemy, they received several severe wounds, which occasioned to each the loss of an arm ; that the loss and wounds sub ject them to daily pain and inconvenience, al though the performance of their duty as othcers ol the army has not been suspended on that ac count since their wounds healed ; and soliciting the aid of congress, to liar as to confer on them a compensation equal to their sufferings and ex pense, by granting to them pensions from the date ol their several wounds.

The House took up for consideration an a - mendmentto the rules of the House, proposed by Mr. Bassett, the object of which was to designate more distinctly the Orders of the Day, and to make them peremptory (that is, the assignation of particular business to par ticular days.) A considerable conversation took place on the expediency of the new rule proposed, which was ultimately rejectee. 1 he engrossed bills making appropriations for the military service, was read a third time, passed, and sent to the Senate tor concurrence. Judicial Reeordt. The remainder of the day was spent in com mittee of the whole, Mr. Smith, of Maryland in the chair, in debating the bill prescribing the effect of certain judicial records. Mr. Fowling, Mr. Pindall, and Mr. Storrs, delivered speeches of considerable length a gainst the bill, and Mr. Spencer replied, also at considerable length. The committee having risen, and the bill being before the House Mr. Forsyth, to try the principal of the bill, which, havinsr been so lanrelv debated, must by this time be perfectly understood, moved to postpone the bill indefinitely. The question on this motion was taken without debate, and decided in the affirmative by a large majority. So the bill, after so much learning, labor, and ability displayed upon it. was finallv re jected ; and I be House adjourned. I'he Paris Moniteur informs us of the appearance of four ferocious animal, (commonly called lynxes) in La Notre de la Rose three of them were successively killed by the farmer. One of them, about the size of a large dog, after doing some miscmei, found his conqueror in a peasant oi extraordinary strength, made like a Hercules, and in the bloom of life. This man, who was unarmed, grappled with him, body to body, and after a sanguinary and obstinate struggle, which lasted three quarter of an hour, succeeded iu throwing him to the ground, but still would not bav conquered him but for his address and promptitude. The furious animal had devoured the hat of his adversary ; a large buckle, attached to the hat, stuck between his teeth ; the man availed himself of this circumstance, and having courageously thrust his hand, armed with a stone, into his mouth, as deep at possible, left the stone there, and in spite' of the numerous bites be received, did not let go his hold until he tore out the tongue of the animal, then flung him to the ground, and saw him expire in dreadful convulsions. This trait of intrepidity hat excited the admiration of the whole country. PRICES OF STOCKS. CORRECTED BT THE Aew - For Stock and Exchange Roard.
