TUESDAY, MAY 12. , Sn - tom. - On the I6lh and 17th April, the iohabiiaat of the western district, in thit state, witneteed th greatest fall of anow that ha fell at t time during th past winter.

The large and flonritliing Dour mill belong ing to Mct.tr. F. Brown & Co at Rochester, in this date, were totally destroyed by fire on Friday night the lit of May, togethe'r with a bout 4.500 buihelt of wheal. The loss it estimated at 17,000 dollars. There had been no fire in the mill for two day previous to the accident , 5tort0reai.ing. - .Tbe jewellery store No. 45 Chatham - street, wat broken open last eight, and robbed of a number of watches and other valuable article. t.. , .' A report wat put tn circulation yesterday that tho collector of thit port had been dismissed from office, aud another gentleman appoicted in hit place. On enquiry, however, it turn out lo have been a sheer fabrication. We are pleased lo tee that the corporation hat commenced opoa Ibeir now plan of keeping the city clean. But instead of an army of sweepers parading lbe street between 10 and 11 o'clock in th forenoon with dirt cart in their rear, dust - 1 ing and putting out the eye of the cititeot, they should have the work all doue aid the dirt re moved before 0 o'clock in the morning. Let ui hope thit will be the case when the system gett fairly into operation.

From tht Richmond Enquirer, JVovS. Eatl India Trade. Tho Virginia banks io this city are curtailing transient paper 25 per cent. The eastern banks press upon Ihem ; and they press upon their customers The India merchant press upon the eastern banks, and they upon those of tht south. The merchant who deal lo the East Indies, require a considerable turn in specie, to carry on their operations. It it estimated by an intelli gent merchant, that from Salem, Boston, New - York, Philadelphia and Baltimore, about 1UO ships annually tail for the Indies. Each ship takes from 100,000 to 500.000 dollars in silver ; their outfit being principally Spanish milled dollars. Put down, then, 10,000,000 of dollars each year, and tbe amount of silver exported ajmojt exceeds credibility. A large portion of this sum necessarily drawn from the hanks During this East India season, silver bears a premium in the market of 1 or 2 per cent, above gold It wat but the other day that a principal New - York merchant, who deals largely in the East India trade, exchanged eight hundred thousand dollars in gold with Mr. Gi - rard, the banker of I'hilailelphia, fur silver coin, at 1 per cent discount. The eastern banks be ing called on for ipeae, are under the necessity of calling in their notes, as well at nearly con fining their payments to gold, instead of - silver. I ne Last India trade thus annually tends oul of the United Slatet a large turn of tilrer. The drain murt be made up from some other quarter. And our banks are thus put to the expense ol importing annually a quantity of specie to supply the vacuum. Is there no danger that this Last India itsell will be overdone ? that more goods will come to be imported than we can profitably dispose off Such it the enterprise of our merchants, and the general facilities of obtaining capital, furnished by our numerous banks, that we can engage in few branches of peculation which we da not carry into excess. Mr. Maclure used to amuse himself with an extravagant speculation, which wat once carried on in New - York in waterme lons. There are few cities in tbe Union, which have tuffeied more by over dealing than Rich. mood. The East India rage has not yet reached her ; but may not other towns yet sutler hy it r That the English traders view our trade with the East Indies with some jealousy, it no tecret io our merchants j but that they seriously meditate tome restriction upon our commerce, is ap parent from the following extract of a letter, put into our hands, dated Liverpool, 21st February last: " The house engaged in the East India trade are preparing to have a bill brought into parlia ment to limit the import of India cotton to Bn - tUh shin direct from India. If this succeeds, it will reduce that bianch of your carrying trade lo wlial can be uisposeil of on the continent. There it however no doubt that it will meet ith a strenuous opposition from the mauufar tu ring interests; but we think it may be impor tant to you to know of this intended proceeding early, 'l he American tra.leaio fully upon the watch to get as much time as possible (live to six months) to cover such shipments to tins country at may be now in operation or contemplated Thit they will endeavor to accomplish either by compromise with tho tiiptiortert of the bill, or by - actual opposition ; but in a questiou of Uritub interests it would appear invidious lo attempt any thing further ." Since writing; the above, the mail (of l;ist night) brinirt us an Ksv in the Boston Oa. cette, which expresses much alarm at tlie pre sent great and increasing trade to India The author makes the tnilowin.fr remark : " 1 would venture to hazard an opinion, that there is not as much specie in the b.infcs in Boston (exclusive of special deposits) a will be shipped from here to India in one month and what i to prevent all this f om rowr a way, h dollar can any win re be purchased with ii f from the Washinilon Cty Gazelle.
