Yours, Sic. Bridgtwater, (,ft.)July 10, 1818. Rev. Sir Having heard t.f the recent disomy of the cavern in the town of Plymouth, 1 'went yesterday, accompanied by a young gen tleman of my acquaintance, for the purpose cf examining it. We found it situated near the bead ot Black river, on its south western side, and about 50 rods from the stream. It is at the foot of a large mountain, just in the border of a wood, and about 60 rods from the nearest dwel ling bouse. It has been known for several years that the trth was hollow in this place, and a' ones have been frequently thrown in, which oc casioned a rumbling noise as they bounded from rock to rock ; but the passage was never opened so as to admit a person to descend, till about 10 or 12 day ngo, jliavmg procured lights, we descended through a sloping and rugged passage, barely sufficient to admit one person at a time, about 10 feet, which brought us to the first sub - terraneam apartment. Accuitomed to the brightness of day. our eyes were unable to discern the distant rocks by the help of our candles, and nothing appeared before as but a dark and proband abyss. We ho waver proceeded cautiously down, over loose fragments of rocks, about SO feet further, which brought as to the lowest place iu the first apartment. The shape of this room is fcliptical, being about 90 feet Ion; and 20 broad, lis greatest perpendicular height ia a - bout 20 fset, the walls irregular, and tiie bottom very rough and uneven. We found at the north a passage into a second apartment, which was a - bout two thirds as large as the first. The bot tom of this room is sand, and much more level than the former. In passing from the first into the second apartment, the perpendicular descent ii about 8 feet, rom ine second, we proceeded through a passage 5 feet bih and 4 wide, iu - to a third apartment, which was 14 (eet long, 8 broad, and 7 feet high, from the third, we entered a fourth apartment to the north, upwards of 30 feet long, H broad, and 13 high. This is very carious. About 3 feet from the bottom, the sides begin to incline towards each other, and moet at the top like the roofof a house. In p? sing from the entrance to the opposite end, w ascend about 10 feet, and the top is parallel to this ascent. " On returning ba k into the third, we found a passage into a nflh room, to the south. The opening into this room is not larger than the mouth of a common oven. With some difficulty, however, we crept through it, and sound the apartment to rcsemblo an oven very much in o - ther respects, it being 10 feet long, 7 broad, and ' in the middle 4 1 - 2 feet high ; at the top was a hole of a conicsl shape, about 2 1 - 2 feet ; the diameter at the base, about 10 inches. On our return to the second, we found a parage, to the north, through which we crept into a tilth apart - meut, 18 feel long, 8 broad, and 5 bih. From this last, we proceeded west through a narrow passage, into the seventh and last apartment, 1 1 feet long, 7 broad, and i high. From the north ad of this, however, there is au alley 2 feet wiJe anl 4 high, which extends nearly 18 feet into the rocks. The distance from the entrance of the cave to the utmost extremity of the third apartment, is, by the seamt passage, more than 100 feet. The bottom ot the second mom is the lowest part ol the care, and is about ti lect lower than the surface of tho earth at the entrance.

Waltxk Cnarisj. a in as lic the to the no to HZ&.YQRK Er&MttQ POST. FRIDAY, AUGUST 14. By the arrival this morning of lh Britiih schr Zanga, in 10 days front Nassau, (II. P.) we hve received Bahama Gazettes as late as the Z9th July. They furnish os news of importance, ex ept a few words upon the subject of the lata dispute between the governor of Uie Bahamas and the provincial legislature, which led to the Jissolutioa of the latter. . The dispute originated in the arrest of some person by the assembly, lor tonlemvt. The matter was Anally referred to the British ministry, whe directed bis dis charge.' The assembly, however, like all other assemblies, was very tenacious of til sum dignity. and refused to comply with the order. This produced a prorogation of that body, nntil the tlst of July, when they again assembled. In the mean time, considerable excitement was found to exist among Use people, who did not re lish the decision of the ministry ( and tha Gov ernor, Coding a determination on the part of the Legislature not to recede from the) ground they had assumed, was obliged to dissolve themi Moduly It is customary among those of oar southern and western neighbors, who entertain exalted notions of their own superior talents and qualifications, and who feel an itching for office, tns English style, Jio offer themselves as caus - didaies for sues office as best suit their fancy This mode, while it displays to advantage tha superior patriotism and self de votedntss ol the candidate, is supposed to be preferable od another account. It operates much in the same way a labor - saving machine, as it relieves the pub from all the trouble and expense of caucuses. conventions, electknering - pruitiag, whiskey. iia ftp. The sjtoal way of announcing one's willingness to bind himself out is a servant to the people, it to make a publication iu the newspapers, wherein is set forth to the greatest possible advantage, the talents, acquirements, and pe culiar qualifications of Uie condescending appli cant. This is always done with the rigitahtre of candidate, if be is so fortunate as to be able write bis nam. This, however, is not al ways th case, and th difficulty is then over come by employing a schoolmaster or village at torney to write the address, to which the candi dates affixes hit mark thing which any one can do. In addition to the address, if it becomes necessary ,the candidate assembles tbe populace - mounts a wood - pile, beer - barrel, or whiskey - key, and harangues them with true unembel - lithed native eloquence. This generally does business the candidate is borne the shoulders of the rabble to the nearest bar - room from whence they stagger to the poll aud he is elected. We have been led to these remarks at the pre sent time, by the following advertisement, copied verbatim tt literatim, el punrfuafini, from the Indiana Centinel, printed at Vinceuucs. We re publish it for tbe amusement of our readers. Frienth and Citizen. Having served my country with patriotic valor and feeling, yet actuated wilii the wuruest wi.hcs for the pros perity and happiness of my fellnw - cituens, I feel it my duty to ofl'er to them my eei vieea in the civil department. " I have fought for liberty and my country 1 1 have arrested th tomahawk whin raised a - gainst the innocent 1 and therefore, since it is longer in my power to direct our soldiers the ucbt, accept my friends of the bumble offer of my talents for the of lice of assistant judge. " Who is deserving or tlie civil owice, it tlie soldier bred to Uie art of war, and accomplished in every thing interesting to society, is not ; who has tciletl, witu hunger, wi.h cola and danger, to protect tne rights of tbe republic ? "jtma NUAAC. " Vincennes, June 6, 1818. " N. B. If any of my fellow - citizens should doubt my talents, I will make a speech at the court - house on the day of tlie election." This, we think, is one of tbe best things of the kind we have ever seen. Who can resist such eloquence, the claims of such patriotism, and, above all, such unaffalti modctty f The Indi - anians, we conceive, must be tlie most cruel aud cold - hearted people iu existence, if they do not reward him lor his " accomptuhmenti," his " toil," the " rfnnger" he has encountered, and the 4 toi1' and " Aunger" he has " endured." We hope the honest Ini'ianians will not be so par. Bane, aud fly to some other caudidate as an an tidote. We have received a communication from baker, this morning, in reply to a note publinhed in t'i i piper 00 Wednesday, complaining of the impositions practised by bakers with regard to the weight of their bread. Our correspondent thinks Uie writer of that article must be very little acquainted with the law upon this ruVject, or be would not have called upon the corpora tion to correct tha abase'. The corporation, he conceives, can adopt no belter metiiod in rcla lion to this busine, than the one already in force. There are three inspectors of bread iu the city, whose business it is to inspect both weight and quality, iu the bake - houe, waggon or store ; or in any place where bread may be fonud; and the law enjoins, that the baker shall have bis name on his bread, with a view that he may be detected and punished, should he attempt to defraud the public. Our correspondent further remarks : " I am well aware that there are some that will impxxe on (heir fellow - citizens if they can with impunity; but it will gratify eve ry respectable baker to see these men brought to justice." lie further informs us, that the assize of bread, since August 1, is as follows : Wheat bread, 34 oz. for Is. Do. mixed with indian, 34 cz. do. Do. do. rye, 43 oz. do. Rve, . . . 51 os. do. Another correspondent, upon the rame subject, very ju'llv observes that the assize of bread rhould ne printed ia large rhnractrr and stuck up in all the markets in the city, and o Jier public place. 1'hs inhabitants wonll then be able to ascerUiu .r themselves, without tbe aid of an iispetor, whether their bread was short of wei$ hi or - ti t.

' T Frmlhe Albany Argw - . ' Afw - Fe'r Flour. It is of th first importance to this state, that this great staple of New York should maintain high reputation abroad. But from some cause or other at any rate, some radical defect in our police tbe contrary is Ins fact. And that this fact should exist, is Is th highest degree disgraceful, and should excitejbe vizilaece and scratinv of an insulted and injured people, la a note to a communication fronn William and James Brown ii Co. merchants, ol Liverpool, we find the followios : " New - York floor is nuit aeslected.

How can it be expected that our flour should have a reputation abroad, when the inspector is changed every year or two, a parties may happen to predominate ? Just as he begins to become acquainted with his business, he is removed froi office, and som new band takes bold, who per haps cannot distinguish between plaster of Paris aud superfine flour. Already we understand there ax a host of applicants for this office. One of them is figuring away in tb public papen, b series of numbers addressed to the governor, 00 agriculture. If the quantity as written, to say nothing of its awaJily. is to give him any claim to the piintment, he is certainly in a fair way to obtain the prize. Cfiret, titles, dignitaries, ic. ie. multiply so fast in tnis land of republican simplicity, that it is otily witli the greatest difficulty that we can keep the run of them. We observe in a letter published io this morning's Gazette, addressed to Dr. MiU hill, that this scientific gentleman has quite an imposing title superadded to the long line of crooked letters which have before been appended to his name. It is now, we believe, Dr. Samuel L. Mitehtll, M. D. L. L. D. T. R. S. A. A. S. ice. Sic. Surgtm - Gcneraloj theMx - litia of the State of Js'eu - York i David C. Deforest, Esq.

At Boston, we perceive measures have recently been adopted to proclaim the gospel, as " glad tidings of good things," to the sons of the wave. fhe place of worship is stated, in the Boston pa pers, to be ever tne center area ot the new stores on Central wharf. Scats are provided for captains and mates, and every mariner has an in vitation to worship at the hours appointed. We stated in our paper last Wednesday, on the authority of a letter from Richmond, (Vir ) that the valuable flour mills, called u allege', had been destroyed by fire. Our information was doubted by Borne. But this morning's brings a confirmation of the disaster whb all the particulars. Important. W'c learn from the Albany Daily Advertiser of yesterday, that the cause be tween the State and the Utica Insurance Company, was decided by the Supreme Court now in session at that place, on Tuesday, lly this decision the said company are prohibited from carrying on banking operations of air kind, and their charter ii declared to give them no other powers than those of insurance against loss " by fire or otherwise." RICHMOND, Aug. 10. fires .'We had not heard the dUmat cry of fire or the note ot the bell since the last winter. But on Fridsy night, in the course of fire hours, the bell runs the alarm thrice. The first was a few minute before i, and the second a few mi nutes after. They both arose from the firing ol the Globe Tavern on the main street, as was already stated in the Compiler of Saturday. It was supiosed that tee fire wis extinguished ; but it again broke out in a tew miuules, tta bell again rung Uie alarm. A Tery iuconsiJeraUe injury was done to the Globe ; but for very prompt exertion, tins large wooden building would have been in a blaze, and scattered de struction on both sides of it. There is no doubt that this was the work of an incendiary. A can dle or some firebrand had txca introduced into a rat - bole: tho alarm was however immediate ly given, aud the fire was easily extinguished. About sun - rise on Saturday, the alarm was sain given ; and after some time it was a certain ed that Gallcgo's Mills were on fire. The flames burst out, from tbe gnrret floor, nearly at the same moment throngn every part of the roof. Persons on the spot rushed up stairs, bul the smoke was too stifling to permit them to do any thng. Tlie mill had been at work tlie whole nipht and it is supposed, that either by the friction of the gudgeons, or of some of the wooden timber touching and rubbing together, the heat was generated which set fire to the house. The mill is up the James Kiver canal atnut a mile from the city 1 in the rear c.f it is the river 1 and the front, are the can.l and steep bank beyond it. Few peoplewere, there fore, on the snot 111 time 10 nave rendered as distance in the the most ordinary case ; but in this situation.tlie wooden structure of the hous and tlie rapidity of the flames would have pre cluded any number of people from avmg inc No other aid could have been given than to have saved the flour which was barreled up which was r fleeted. Fortunately very few barrels were on hand, as they had but recently been brought down to the City. The principal loss nf stock was abotii 14 or 1 4,000 bushels of wheat which was on liand of I this year's harvest. .None of this article sated. One wing of the house indeed Uirr'.s I, and let out a considerable quantity, but mi scorched as not perhaps to be in a situation to make flour. We understand, that the mill - house which belonged to Mr. I'eter Cbevalie. being the bequest of tlie deceased Mr. Gal - lejro,b - s been insured ami the stock on hand, the property of the firm, is said to be i.isured to tlie North tri a Urge amount.

After a Preamble of twice the length, on the 5th February last, it was Jletolved, That the Honorable John Phillips, President of tlie Senate, the Honorable Timothy Bigelow, Speaker of the House of Representative, and the Honorable Richard Sullivan, be a Committee, in the recess of the Legislature, to consider the situation and circumstance of the deaf and dumb, to extend their inquiries, so far as is practicable as to the view the neighboring states in relation to this subject, to see what aid this Commonwealth Lean, in their opinion, consistently bestow in promoting an institution for improving tne coudition of these persona, and the moot eligible mode of carrying the same into effect, to report at the first session of the next Gen. Court. The above named Committee made a Report June session last, but it was again referred the January session, and no definite Resolve on. the subject has been passed. iota. From the Georgia Journal. The law of congress passed in 1 802 to regulate trade and intercourse with the Indian tribes, and preserve peace on the frontiers, under which Capt. Wright is to be tried, enacts, that " if auy citizen or other person, shall go into uny town, settlement, or territory, belongiug to any nation tribe of Indians, or shall there commit murder, by killing any Indian or Indians, belonging f Mtian or trl r lu Jiaus in amity with the D. btates, such offender, on being thereof convicted, shall suffer death." "And when the offender shall be apprehended, or brought for trial into any part of the U. States, it shall be lawful for the President of Die U. States to issue a commission to any oue or more judges of tlie supreme court of the United States, and the judge of the district in which surh offender may have been apprehended, or shall have been brought for trial which judges, or any two of them, shall have the same jurisdiction, in surh capital, as the circuit court of such district, and shall proceed to trial and judgment in the same mauner, such circuit court might or could do." For the immediate attainment of the objects of the general government in relation to captain Wright, the acting attorney of the United States for the district 01 Georgia, (Mr. Da vies having temporarily left the state for the benefit of his health, which has been considerably impaired by an incessant devotion to business) has writ - tea to the ( - reek agent for Indian affairs, we are informed, requesting to pursuo such steps as will authorize the marshal to take captain W right into custody : and the governor has been desir to cause him to be delivered to any judicial officer of this county, whenever he shall be de manded by virtue of a warrant irora ti e proper authority, and to detain him till then under bis present military arrest. From the .Xalional Adrotate, of thii morning. VerSi Dumb.

On this occasion, our charitable and humane citizens will not eirect us to say much.

We have received from a friend in Billerica, the following - account of a destructive fire wbich has recently taken place in that town : OiLtzaicA, August 8 - On the moroins of the 4th mst. at about half past one o'clock, the Inhabitants of the vil - lage situated on Concord river, near its inter - section by tlie Middles x Canal, were alarmed with the cry of Ire. It was found to proceed from a two story building situated near the river, owned by John L. Sullivan, esq. and occupied by Messrs. Jona. Farmer and Henry H. Merrill, as a Blacksmith's ship, having connected wiib it a Forge and other works operates! by water. The lire soon consumed this building, and communicated to the factories for c:rtiing, spinning and weaving, owned by Mr. J rm.cis Faulkner, which with the princi - 7 - t part of the valuable machinery contained 1:1 iHcin, full a sacrifice to the flames. From the combusuSe naru - of the building and th oleaginous state of the machinery, the fire spread with great rapidity to the clo.liin and fulling mill, which was tdo consumed with considerable property, which cmid not be res - cued from U.e flames. The principal losis sustained by Mr. faultier, ry which event a worthy man is thrown m:t of employ, at a season alien his business w.s most lucrative.

Yesterday afternoon we experienced for a few hour a pleasing terrible storss of wind, rain & hail, accompanied svitu violent thunder i light niic, which soon cooled down Farenheit at kast 5 degrees, and added much to the satist'ai tion and convenience of our citizens ;sevend panes of glass we know have materially suffered from the velocity of the hail stones. We believe no lives were lost, although several trees were blown or knocked down during tlie storm. Several stones ricked up from the ground were as large as a good size walnut. If the s'orm extended :ar into the country, we apprcbend there nas considerable dauin.e been done to the cotton rrop: the corn is so far advanct d that; is little danger of its being materially injured.
