It would seem from these publica - - tioos, that capt - S. is intent apon establishing his tbeorythough his firt communicition was received by tome as a burlesque upon the vagaries of torn modern philosophers ; and by others, as the wild effusion of a disorJored braiu. For ourselves, we profess but little knowledge of the . science of " world - makm - ," as this branch of philosophy has been facetiously called but as .absard and preposterous as the theory of capt. ' Cymmes certainly appears at tbo first glance, we will do him the justice to say, that it is not more . so, than many theories which our philosophers ' have attempted to establish within the last t wen - , ty years. At all events, we doubt wUther capt. , ymme's ideas of the structure of the earth wilt 'be received with more derision or reluctance, than wcr Sir Isaac Newton's doctrines of the earth when first promulgated. . Many people entertain an opinion that captain 8. is afflicted with a partial derangement of his intellect ; and possibly this opinion may be strengthened by bis efforts to illustrate his singular principles of geology. Upon this poiut,wecan state, that we have recently had a couversation with a gentleman of talents and respectability, ' who has known bun well at Cincinnati, witt.iu one or two years. During this acquaintance, oar informant stales, that nothing was further 'from him than insanity. With these remarks, wlav the matter to philosophers, world ma - kers, and the public, to pnnle for themselves 'expressing our regret at the same time, that captain Symmes, who appears so anxious to de . sceod into the bowels of th earth, b. - w not ac companied th BritiiU - srsyediUon - to the ?forth Pole. .

JXO. CLEVES bYMMES, of Ohio. T. S. The data I have as yet obtained, indicates that near latitude 7 3 north, the degrees decrease, so that the ninetieth is uot more than 5 or 10 miles ; that in hi - h latitudes gravity is so lit tle abated by the rotary motion, that water should solidify With a much less quantum ol coltl there than here ; that mi l.hme after reaches nearly to the iu.Mc equators, and may be refracted and reflected beyon J them. That when and where the sun shines perpendicularly on the concave verge of the hollow in summer, it is ex cessive hot ; that the south pole is much more open than the nor'.h ; that the spheres are alter nately farther on ami nearer fich other, in sue cesiv! pairs : that the iu'ide scat ara fresh, anJ discharge into the out r teas puri.vlic - .lly if in constantly ; that air coming out f.tim the hollow i of the innermost si.lieres, is more uu ic i.thy in u than common north wiuds ; that the avmje space between tho spheres is not less than 503 miles ; that the N. pole is 5 or GOO miles beyond tlie ninetieth degree ; that the monsoons and our .. easterly and south westerly winds are forced out and drawn into the hollow poles alternately tliat the fire - ball meteors ome out of the hoi low poles much as Ihe winds do.

Ahhou'h the hi;h - handcd measure here stated to have been taken by Gen. Jdcko3,is not more extraordinary than some other acts of his life, yet it would Ni impiudtnt for us to act in the dark,. We therefore request an interview with tha writes a early asmy be convenient. The spirit of bitter and furious electioneering. once so fahioutible in this state, seems to have taken its flight to the son h and we. - t. An elec tion for a member of conjrr - s now pea lin in Charleston, has occasioned much warmth ; and if we are to judge from appearances, Kentucky will hereafter be torn aod distracted by contend ing factions of the tame party. Our young sifter New Orleans, even in hrr infancy, has also caught a fall share of the spirit. Aa election ha jurt taken place there, for members of the state legislature, the result of which ws hive not yet beard; but judging from theN.
