D.j governor of New - York, was elected a foreign member of the Linnean Soticly of London, at a meeting of that institution held on the 5th of May 4 ait, and under circumstancei the most honourable to him and to our country.

A numerous meeting of tbe most notable house - wives, (pronounced hut or A us im,) of this renowned city, conven d last evening, to take into consideration what measures they should adopt to persuadejthe com - jBoa council to abandon, without delay, the pre sent node of sweeping tb streets, and restore tba ancient practice of every house its own sweeper : The following resolutions were put and carried: RttoUedJint, That the present mod of sweeping the ttreett, by a gang of two doaea negroes, all exercising their birch broom at on time, especially when the wind blows gently from the street directly into the house, is a nuisance too intolerable to be borne by any woman who has tb least regard to the neatness of her f omit or e, the eye - sight of herself and family, and the comfort of her children, especially if they have the hooping - couh, or tbe aithma. . Secondly, raooed, That after being subject to the abort mortification and inconvenience, it is found by experience that the work is only done by halret ; the gutters remain untouched, nor is the middle of tb street in scarcely a better situation after tbe brooms and negroes bar passed than before. Third, That a committe be appointed to draw np and present a rtwpecttul remonstrance to the common council, at their next meeting, againsi th present practice, and praying inch relief ia the premise a to their worships might sawn fit. (Signet! by the PrtHiitU and Secretary ) This phrase was adopted in lieu of on pray - iuj for the iw - esfaUUhjaent of the former custom, in coatequenc of th suggestion of an ! deriy lady, that the very much doubted whether it wat pracrkable aver to restore that castom a gam, for that servant had lately taken H into their heads tint sweeping the streets wasbe - eath them, and wuIJ net submit to it. eompewated for any deficiency in voice ; ibat, ctebebted by hit tasteful aad ranegated windinc; I. - . ti.riii'J hi hit oathelic and Melting tone, tul uj tal, to the be in of BcU tartt. - Th' ctmtUhdt of aflacted ttreett if loudar and more naivertal I ever re member to have witeetted.

J'eu - Brunt wick. June 2. 1818. Dr. Samuel L. MitchUL Dear sir Having formerly the pleasure of your acquaintance, I take the liberty of making an enquiry oi you on a suDject ot natural history wntcn seems curious to me, and I think your ex planation oi it will oe matter or pleasing interest and surprise to a great part of the community, particularly mariners and people who hare taken macn notice ol cunonues on sea voyages. i ieei anxious vou snouid exDtain to the world. th name and place In ichtheolosrv that below to the fish which is only known to mariners as the dolphin. Not having seen oo for 1 2 years, I feel somewhat at a loss to describe its minuter part or its general configuration, but itsoutlines and its faculty of changing colour 1 very well recollect. The last I think I have seen, was one I caught myself on a passage from Europe. I had been for near a week endeavouring to decoy him by aa artificial bait in imitation of the fltinz fish. (wmcn tbe captain told me was the common method) putting it on a hook and dragging a - ilern, but be always preferred the reality as Ion; as they were in our run, frequently jumping ma ay feet in the air to catch them on their flirht .a ...... ... . M kept apace with tbe imp until the seventh or eightn day, upon which, finding himself hungry and no more real ones, he seized my decoy, and was so active and so strong that a harpoon was used to take him aboard. Now followed the mt interesting scene 1 ever had witnessed of its fa. culty, highly displayed, of changing the most vivid prUmatick colours in rapid succession, its duration about half an hour, when dissolution being about to tak place, he became profuseiy covered with circular, defined, blood - red spots about the size of a buckshot death then succeeded and left him of a beautiful silvery white. He measured 4 feet 4 inches from bead to tail, (lis head deep and square, put me in mind of the but end of a shingle, converging off in almost rijjlit lint to the tail, where it wat very small, the tail itself vertically forking very wide, the upper lob the longest. At this cannot belong to the cetaceous tribe, of course it cannot be the dolphin. , Tbe dolphin, at described by naturalists, from its filthy, slimy, oily, Mack skinned character, surely never possessed tbe faculty of giving so much delight as the one I have been describing. 1 have the honor to be, sir, your obedient servant, THOS. M. EVANS. To tlie Editor of the ffew - York Evening Pott: Sir Tbe mean tricks retortrd to bv the satel lite, agents, and lutppv rubjer.u of the edortd Ferdinand, oblige me, through the medium of your paper, to inform whomsoever the nni may concern, that by letters not long since received from a very respectable countryman of ours, re siding at Buenos Ay res, it appears, that the number of the Spanish royalists, prisoners of war in those provinces, amounted to upwards of 8000 men, of all kinds and classes, from general ofh cers, president of tbe provinces, ic. down to privates. That th government of the United Province of the river Ia Plata, the better to protect their own citizen and the foreigner who assist them in to just a war, and to check the barbarities committed by the royalists, had made known to them, that tbey intended to keep the prisoners in order to retaliate the murder of any native citizen of said provinces or foreigner, fighting for their cause, by the death of triple the number of royalists of tbe same class and rank. Thus they intend to put a step to the cru eltie which the modern vandals commit m that country : for they appear to have forgotten that valiant men show aa undoubted courage and va lor in battle, aad are alays humane and gene rous after it ; and that only savages satiate tbeir blood - thirsty rag and mean passions oo a van quished and defenceless enemy. A From the PlalUburjh Republican, June 13. A court martial, of which coL Atkinson w president, has convened rX this post, for lite trial of capt. HalL Th court was organized bo Thursday last. Cob.

It it understood that capt Hall has once been tried by a court martial, on the accusation which were tbe foundation or tbe present trial ; in consequence of which the court decided a - gainst arraigning him a second time on tne same charges and adjourned. Several of lb memDert looc passage in ine steam boat yesterday. W should like to know how much this blonder will cert th country, and at whose instance the court mariial was in masoned. C Pest. OBED WRIGHT.. Erfrotia letter from e sendemm in Xillede - rrlle to hit friend in Jv'cung, (.V. C) dated jut it . Our metropolis bat been in coam leraLl commotion for several dhys port. Captain Obed Wright, the murderer of the friendly Indians, wai arrest ad by order of rn. Jackson, the first ol lut wk UIjw this, and at his request wat permitted U Come to thb place, for th purpote of procuring some papers whk he said would bi uscaasnry at hit On Tbanday morn ing last, when the officer was about to proceed on b joarney, the prisoner broke grouad, and nl with inch valodtv that he aacceeded in reaching th top of oo of oar longest bill before be was overtaken by persons on horseback. I Tia enndoct to enrared the officer, that he look ed as if be intended (evering the fellow head with his sword, which he M waved in fiery cir clet' (a Waama would say) above tbe trembling prisoner, who lookad at if b expected eve - rv moment to meet eld Howardla another world. This affair afforded time enough for a friend of Wnght to procure a wnt or ajirtea corpus, which wat served on tbe officerTand he notified to attend a court called to try tbe case, in a few hour. The court decided that the orders of gen. Jackson were informal, as they contained no charge for which the prisoaer was arretted, or to be tried Jackson simply eVects tbe officer to arrest and confine him until eutructions can be received from the president, ; The prisoner was ducriargea, and tbe officer went oa, cursing our governor anil whole state aa threatening us with vengeance, to tell gen. Jackson how he had been treated, who has never shewn much courtesy towards our chief magistrate. Jackson considered Wright in the service of the United States, and our governor thinks he was ia the service of this state. There is (auch difference of opinion on the subject The governor is cen - tured, generally perhaps j usUy too. How the anair wm end, no on pretends to say. vvngni is under arrest, but whether tbs governor will order a court martial to try, or, whether he will wait instructions from the prestdtnt it not known. I think the governor had very little sagacity not to discover that Wrizht was not qualified to dis charge tbe duties required of htm by his com mand, t .

Pot ashes continue without demand the stock on hand is about 41KX) barrels. We have only 90(1 hbds. Am. Tobacco, aod of inferior qualities." . From the Philadelphia Register, June 23. Tbe following article, which is of a very insi dious and hostile character, it extracted from tbe " London Tunes," of May 16th. The opera tion of such opinions, in erery American mind, must be, to give increased support to tbe measures of our own government, when dictated, at we bt'lieve they now are, by justice aad good faith. " Difjmtc between Spain and America. Tbe state of affairs bet ween 5iaia aud America, affords great matter tor political speculation at preseut. There are those who maintain, the former power must sitcrumb to tbe dictum of. the latter, and yield, however reluctantly, th Honda?, to satisfy the Aorth American govern ment. Other assert, that the miuistcr (Don (finis) could net have proceeded the length of declaring the proposition of tbe American to be " insLdmissiblc," without holding an assurance from his government, that it would not compromise its honor and national reputation, by yielding to the unjust claims of the United State. 1 be demands of the American must have been long since known at Madrid ; and it ia fair to conclude that the chevalier D'Onis wat fully authorised to uphold the dignity and respectability of Spain, by a positive rejection nf such proposals at may humble bit native coMtrr in the o - pinlou of other nations, if this proves to be the case, it is equally reasonable to conclude that tbe court of Madrid has resolved to support its pretensions ry a vigorous man cms war, the moment the United States may take any step to enforce the measures which they bare proposed for their own advantage. War must, therefore, depend upon the act of the Americans, who will put it off until tbeir numerous trader are apprized of thtir danger; aad thus Spain will, in a great measure, lone Ui advantage which that kingdom might derive from a ludden declaration and vigorous prosecution of war. The Ameri cans art aware of this, and their papers, therefore, teem wiih asturances to tranquilize the cpnoiiu - us, uiai - - no aci ot nosuuiy will lane place this session," which ia meant to have a dauble effict first, to mUlead the Spaniards ; auu ncxi, io caution me American merchant of their embryo danger. Torpor or credulity on the part of Spain, would enable the Americans to secure their very extended commerce from the rise of enptnre, and equally eoable the government to direct itt whole attention and resources agiinst the Spaui.h colonies. - It, on the contrary, Spain should pursue a firm, vigorous, and couraeout conduct, an immense booty would enrich her navy, and the adventurous privateers which would sail under her colors and commissions. America has, undoubtedly, a great deal to lose even if nt war with the weakest power. It is this cooridcratioa which will, no doubt, dictate to the prisideut a greater share of justice and moderation in ti'S ciaiuii upon cpam than that which his been exhibited. lu the spirit of com - jierre, ha has demanlcd the highest price for nit ineu iMiip ; nui, iiae a prudent political tradesman, lie wia not run a great loss by insist' ing upon his first terms. Any thing which inter rupts the commerce of the United State will promote that of other rival and commercial nations. The expense of protecting their very extended trad would, of itself, give a decided ad vantage to oilier nautical communities. Tbe in jury they might do Spain, might possibly be great; out. ui euecung it, ineir own losses would be very considerable, and probably much more terious than the commercial interests of the nation would patiently submit to ; to that th tame evil which the intends for Spain, may be as likely to overtake herself from the hardship imposed on some of her own state namely, an emancipation ef tnoi e stales iron the general government of the nation. Politician have long contemplated a separation ot tne southern and northern states, which, possibly, the ambitious project of the government, and the risks attendant on an unne cessary and unjust war, may produce." From the National IrUcUigtncer, June 23. Our reader are doubtless impatient for fur ther accounts of gen. Jackson's movement but we have nothing further to offer them. No di rect intelligence ha reached the seat of govern' ment from gen. Jackson's head quarters note he took up th line of march from it. Mark'si We have thought proper to notice this absence of in formation, to account for th silence we hav ob served on the subject, since announcing, tbe other day, the reported capture of Penncola. This report reached the city from two different sources, remote from each other, and nearer to tbe scene of action than to this city. W have little doubt of tbe correctness of th fact of gen. Js hsviog entered Pensacola ; and it it equally pro bable, if b entered at all, it wat by assault, as it is not to be supposed the Spanish authorities would hav given np so important a post without at least a shew or resistance. The motivei of this ttep general Jackson't dis patches vnll disclose. It is presumed such I measure was not in th contemnUtinQ of the go v foment, although it may necessarily have re sulted from tbe discretion vritrd in tte com manding officer to tak t'tch lawful step a th ralcty ot tb frontier ortit appear to require If the Lalrtas ia arau against us kd the way to Pensacola. there can be no doubt of ran.

Geographical The town of Cahaba, which will be offered at public sale on the Rnt Monday of next October, and which will, probably, be the seat of government for the state of Alabama, is situated on the western branch ef the Alabama, at its confluence with tb river Ohaba. It is distant about 77 milts ia a right line from St. Stephens, on the Tombigbce, aud bean north 49 degrees east. St. Stephens is about 60 miles nearly north of the town of Mobile. The Alabama is a very crooked river; from its confluence with the Tombigbee to Fort Jackson, the distance in a straight line is about 132 miles, but by the river the distance is about 2C4 miles. From the Philadtlphia Centint l. WARNING TO COACHMEN. Co KM 05 WEALTH V. PATRICK tfCRK. A few days since, Patrick ltuik, a hackney coachman, was brought before the mayor of this city, on the following charge, to wit : That he did, on the 16th day ofJkfay last past, when driving a hackney coach, drawn by two hor. - es, (he being at tbe time iutoxicaled,) leave the said horses and carriage standing unattended in tbe street, and went into a house for the purpose of obtaining drink that whibthe remained in the bouse, Uie horses started and ran a considerable distance, and at length, in Front above Arch street, they knocked down and passed over the body of Edward Clement, a child of about ten years of age, who, io consequence thereof, almoti immediately expired. After an investigation of tbe circumstances, he was bound over for his appearance at tbe next session of the mayor's court. The above unfortunate catastrophe L we are orry to say, not the only one which has occurred in our city, of a sundar nature ; several persons have been knocked down, within the last few months, aud severely bruised, through the negligence or inattention of coachmen. The practice, alio, of driving dray and carta through the principal streets of th city, in the rapid manner they usually are, is certainly very reprehensible, and calli loudly for the intervention of the proper authority, to chock the growing evil.

After a detention of about 20 hours, the ten der returned again to the Roads with the cargo on board ; the Kevenue Cutter accompanied her down.
