Ey orJer of ths commander in chief. SOL. VANXRE3SELAER, " Adjutaut - Gcneral. Police regulations I have received, for several days past, a number of leltcrsbn this subject, and have promised to dispose of them this evening. I proceed to fulfil my promise, and I take them up as they lie. . . The first that presents itself is signed Martha Wheclrigkt. This epistle purports to be front a widow lady, whose family consuls of herself and two maiden sisters, who have seeu better days, bat who have now so little property that they c innot ailbrd to keep n servant, but vet by means of their industry, tliev contrive to live comforta bly and make both ends of iho year meet. The loiter then proceeds to inform me that she fears that the repeated complaints cn the prcftnt mode of sweeping the streets, may induce tbe corporation to restore the old method of obliging every one to do their, own sweeping, which she says they should regard as the greatest calamity, in their circumstances, that could befal them Could I, she says, or the ladies who attended the late meeting, have seen h - r and her sLters, after wailing until the nftighbn - . - s bad all retired to bed, talcs up their brooms, and with the aid of the Learth shovel, consume an hour in sweeping the street and cleaning the gutter, iho cannot but think oar compassion would bo touched at the light, so that we could not find it in our hearts to say another word in favor of restoring the old law. Mrs. Wheclright conclu Jcs by reminding me, that though few perhaps live lika her, entirely without servants, yet that a very great number hare only a little girl to assist them, and that a little girl is not alone able to sweep the streets and clean the gutters. Ehe then attempted to answer tbe objections that have been made to the new method, but I have not room (or this. This case of art ha Wheelright and her . maiden sisters is certainly one that deserves the consideration of the generous and humane. It is not a solitary case ; hundreds ire similarly situated and plead Sbrclbly in behalf of the nc w regulation. The next letter is addressed to (he Board of Health, and is from one of the Friend. After quoting that part of the law, which ordains that gtrbageand oflV.st hall not be cast into I he street vader penr.lty of two dollars, uuless on sweeping day, lie informs me that the people of Spring - street, YimOum - strcwl, Greenwich street near Spring street market, have had but two sire ing day$ these two months, and which, not being cxpeclt J, they were not prepared for. ,The coo - eequeM es c.f such a state of things are described . with alt that genuine eloquence which a full heart never tails to inspire ; but which, for want of room I shall not repeat. The writer thinks it rather a hardship that the inha bitants of this part of the city should bo placed between two fires ; that, if they disregard the Uw they are subject to a penalty of $2, and if I they strictly regard it, Ihey are subject to a greater penalty, that of sickness. He proposes that tbe city should be divided into six or e:;Ut 5th 3d ing c doe (hat The the not On the that only dirt ings tion tiou and the an a hold no on Post the ence We to and 3 to this cora the to !t by to ni a is districts and a sweep master appointed to each, who should divide each, of the great districts into three sections ; sec 1st to be swept on 2d and days j sec. td on 3d and 6th days, and sec, oa 4iU aud 7ih days of the week : by which method all our streets would be cleaned twice a week. This correspondent has serious cause for com plaint against tbe new regulation, imperfectly executed as it is, at present. I believe it is a - greed on every side that once a week for sweep and cleaning the streets is by no means tuffi tent and will not satisfy the citixens who have a regard to health or comfort. The plan here proposed appears feasible and if no better pre' sents itself ought to be adopted. The last I havo time now to notice is a com' mumcauon signed " A Cwaen." written in a female hand, and complaiuing in a bitter tone, Cedar - street has uol been blessed with the tight of a bell - cart this week ; and that offals have been collecting there since Friday last. writer threateus if such neglect is continued, law shall be resorted to. The truth of the whole matter, is that much dis satisfaction prevails throughout the city, both with former and present regulations, ami it is quite easy to decide which mode is preferable the best view I can take, I am inclined to opiuioo, that tbe present mode should be still continued, at least, for further experience, and the old method should also be observed by every family that can make it conveuieut. The difficulty attending this is, that, at present, - carts are not provided to lake o!F the sweep - twice a week, as formerly ; but an arrange' ment can easily be made between the corpora and the contractor for theui, if the corpora think well of the plan. Joseph L. Pluymart, one of the villians who robbed the Pittsburgh bank, broke jail a se cond time at Ogde - . - .iburgh on the 13th ult. made his escape, though guarded during night, by two trusty persons, and liand - cufi'ed and chained down to the floor of his prison.

Adjutant - general's olfice, 1 Baraucas, May 29, 1318. Fellow - soldiers ! You were called into the field to punish savages and urgroes, who had in a sanguinary manner, used the toiinnsliawk ami scalping knife, upon our helpless citizens on the frontier. ' You have pursued them to Mikiuky, t. Marks, S. waney, and lately to this place, through an unexplored wilderness, encountering immense difficulties aud privations, which you met, with the spiritof American soldiers, without a murmur. Your general anticipated a close ol the catupaigu on his return to Fort Gadsden; and hailed the hour with feelings of gratitude to heaven, at the prospect of relioviag you - from your labors, by placuig you in quarters and returning you to your homes. Cut how great was the disappointment, when lie heard of the recent murders committed ou the Alabama, by n party of the enemy from I'cnsacoia, whero they were furnished with provisions nad ammunition by a friendly power. Under this state of things, you were marched here encountering d.laculties which you alone can properly appreciate me t tins on the way tho protest of the governor of Wcot - Horida, threatening to employ force if wc U:il not immediately evacuate tho country. This new and unexpected cnciny was soon taught to feel the impotence of his threats. You enter ed Pensacola without opposition, and the strong fortress of the Barancas could held out but one day ?.;aiust your determined courage. Your penerul cannot litlp admiring ths spirit and mili tary zeal manifested, when it was signified, that resort to stormini; would be uecessarv. nu.l would do in justice to his own feelings did ho not particularly notice tho judgment displayed by his ai 1 - de - cunip, rapt, fiad. - den, of engineers, in the selection of the positions lor the batteries, aud the gallantry of his second aid, captain Call, and capt.

Some lime since, when the wonderful accounts of this great monster was going the rounds in the newspapers, one of the Malingers went one dav on a visit to the " Pennsylvania Hospital, and on bcimr ciues tiuncd by a lunatic, who was a seafaring man, as to the news ol tlie day, the Manager replied, noOii.ig very important except the accounts of the great iei Snake, which lias lately appeared to the eastward." 1 have heard of" that, replied the ' Insane,' but it is nothing very extraordinary, as 1 was once myself a witness "f a sight of thet.e monsters, on our voyage near the coast of South America. As we were one day sailing ainn",', a large monster of a Ser pent came out oi the sea on board our ship, and immediately cli.iibed the mainmast, terrify ing us all so imri that wcail ran below', - directly afterwards, another of the same species, with his head out of water in lL';e manner,' came on board and went up the foi - cma .t ; and aticmards another one came and twined him - - elf around the mizenmast.

Is not this th Leviatlian indeed? Captain West is a tuin wosl known to us and the correctness and veracity of hi statement will uut he double J by anyone who knows him. I, Shtihacl West, of HalloKll in (!ie county of Keimcbeck, master o the pack ;t Delia, plying betwteu Kennelieck River and Boston, testify and say, that 1 kit Host on on the morning of Suoddy, the2Utint, end at nbout 6 o'clock, P. f.l. Cai Ann bearing W. S W. about 2 leagues steering a cource N. N. E. saw directly aliead. distaol three ri.'Ois of a mile, an object which 1 have no doubt was the SKA SERPENT to often mentioned hy e.hers, er.gagtd huh a wt.ale that was etaleavouring lo elude the attack. Th: serpent threw op his tail from 13 te 3d tttt i;i a perpendicular direction, striking the whale with (re aieoious blows rapidly repeated, which weiedis - tioctly heard and very load, l"f I or 2 minutes. They (hen both disappeared for several minutes, moving in a W S VV Cirection, wuca they re - ap peared ia shore of as, and about under tlie sun, tbe reflection of which was s? strocg as to prevent our seeing toditlmcUy as before when Vte trritieodons blows were repeated aid as clearly heard as before. They again went down for a short time and again came up (o the surface un - da our larboard quarter, the wbaia appearittf; first and the serpent ta pursuit. - Here eur tw was very (air. - The serpent shot up his tail tbro the water to the height heforcmeutioned, which beheld out of water some time, wavmg it in the air, and at the same time, hile his tail remain - ed in this position, raised his bead rather leisurely 15 or 50 feet, as if taking a view of the surface of the sea. AJter remaining in this situation a short time, he wsain sunk into the water, disap. peared, and was not seen after by any on board. The Serpent's body was larger in my opinion, than the mast of any ship 1 ever saw; his tail appeared very ragged and rough, and was shipped something like an eel's ; and his head like that of the laud Serpent Being well ac quainted with whaling, 1 think the Whale was 1 endeavouring to escape, a he spouted but once at a time on coming to the surface. Tbe Whale's back was distinctly seen, as well as his spouting, and the last time he appeared he went down before the Serpent came up. The above was seen by all on Imard, amounting to 15 or 13 persons, as well as myself, with the exception of one woman. During our view, the combatants had passed a mile or more. The Whale was a hump back, and a pretty large one. &HUBAEL WEST. Kksmbcc ss. JIaUoveU, June 27, IS 13.
