The rumors were in some degree confirmed by the fol- t lowing brief paragraph from the Albany Daily Adveiti- I ser, bearing date of this morning, but published in anti- j cipation!? v "It was reported yesterday that the Commercial Bank of Albany bad discovered that a portion of its funds, to a considerable amount, had been abstracted." The reports are numerous, and doubtless greatly exaggerated. We were told in Wall street of various ^ sums having been abstracted from the bank, varying from ?110,000 to *200,000. It was also reported that the Bank of America had been overdrawn by the absconding ) ^ cashier of the Commercial Bank?Air. Bartow. But ! ' such is not the fact. So far as the Bank of America is apprised of the facts ! ; of the case, the drafts upon them appear to have been i regular transactions; the checks having been received j and paid through the regular channels, and in the ordinary course of business?and wo may add, that, thus far, no fraud has been discovered by the officers of the last . mentioned Bank. If, then, there has been any fraud, in connexion with the business of the Bank of America and j the Commercial Bank, the cashier of the latter must | 1 have charged remittances to the former which he has j v pocketed instead of remitting. It is also rumored, that j ^ the Commercial Bank has stopped. Such could not have ! 1 been the fact until this morning; because, nothing ) wrong in the aft'airs ot the Bank was dreamed of, at Al- ! 8 bany, until yesterday morning; and the first symptom of j ^ distrust was occasioned, not by any discovery,"but by the I long and unaccounted-for absence of the cashier, fr. e:iy 1 event, the paper of the Commercial Bank?its drafts^nd I ? checks?are taken at the Bank of America, as usual. The erroneous statements published in some of the i *T i.? ?r ,K? | ? n. 1 OIK j?aj?cir?, tu icittUMii w uiwauuiovi ^vmhh% cial Bank iu this city, have called out the following statement from the Directors, which we copy from the Eve. Journal of yesterday: {<Albany siegus. The Commercial Bask.?The disappearance of Henry Bartow, late Cashier of the Commercial Bank of Albany, has naturally created much excitement, as it did the astonishment of the Directors and persons connected with that Institution, and given rise to various'rumors concerning its solvency. in consequence of the publication of an article in the Journal of Commerce, of New York, stating the capital of the Bank I at ?240,000, and an embezzlement of ?210,000 by the late Cashier, the Directors deem it proper to ap| prise the public, that the capital of the bank actually paid in is $300,000, together with a nelt surplus of $70,203, a making the total amount of capital $370,261?. The di\\ rectors are not apprised of defalcations to the amount of $130,U00; which, if it should be that sum, will leave an unimpaired capital of $240,203. Although a partial loss I I is thus sustained by the stockholders, the directors are enabled, from the examinations made, to give the assur- ; ance,that in no event can injury or loss accrue toothers. Besides, by the terms of the charter of this Bank, the j [ stockholders are individually responsible to double the J { amount of the original capital, being $600,000. The business of the Bank will not be suspended, and all notes, drafts and depositee will be paid on demand. John Townsknd, President. 1 WlJ.f.iam W.m.ker, V. Prrs't. ? |j George VV.

Excitement in New York.?Extensive Fraud.? , Wall street, says the Commercial Advertiser of Tuesday, ( I I Was in an uproar yes\erday utlei r.oori, caused by the uu- j welcome discovery, lliat a jobber in fancy stocks had sud- . denly ''evacuated Flanders," leaving certain checks up- j on various banks, to the amount of-$41,000, which he had given as so much cash, in the morning, utterly unprovided for. The individual is a young Englishman, cnlling him- , * aelf Wilding, who has figured to some extent in the stuck j | market lately, as well as in Broadway, where lie made . tjuitc ashow'evcry day with green frock coat, red velvet j, waistcoat, low-crowned hat, and a great store of diamonds I u.nd safety chains. In thc-cfusrse of the woming, he purchased stocks oF one dealer to the amount of^^U,000, and |. f 11,000 of another, giving his checks in payment;-but , forgetting to make deposits to meet those checks, he ( made sale of the scrip without a moment's delay, fingered I the proceeds, amou-nt'mg to *11,000 dollars, and instantly ( bolted. The roguery was discovered, of course, on pre- . venting the oliccks?the myrmidons of the police wore j roused to the chase?and at 11 o-'elook last night, the j gentleman was civilly ushered into the presence of the ( magistrates, having been arrested somewhere in the up- | , per part of the city, lie had removed .from his lodgings, | with bog and baggage, but his movements were neither , rapid nor secret enough to evade the pursuit of the keen ; | ministers of the law. A large part of the money was!, found upon his person. J j The strangest part of this affair is the reudiness of The ; ibrokors to suffer so large un amount of money to pass I t out of their "hands, with no bettor security -for -repayment than the checks of an 'unknown daudv boy?a fo- i reigner without connexions, or guarantees of any kind ' ' for his integrity, and who has been known, even bv ' sight, only a few months in Wall street. In the card h published in the morning papers announcing his fraud , and offering a reward for his apprehension, he is repre- I aented as no more than "about twenty years old."

It appears th it the citizens of Texas, who have etnirnted from the United States, will have lighting to do, nd that before very lono;?perhaps the contest is now goig on?to defend their lives, liberty, and properly, from lie tyranny and oppression of a military despot?Santa uina. Such a tiling as a confederated Republic no longer xists in any part of Mexico?the whole power is concen* ated in the hands of Santa Jinnti. He has overrun the tepublican State ofZacatecas, which determined loiuainlin her separate existence, rights, and privileges, as a late, witli liis mercenary soldiers,abandoned slaves of mitary despotism and misrule. The rest of Mexico has gierrllv given in passively to his domination, and Centralmi?the consolidation of all power at the centre, in the amis of one tyrant, now prevails. The Governor of Texas lias been cast in piison by the soldiers of Sanla inna,and their Legislature dispersed by the bay met.? Texas will resist the tyrant, however, with " war to the .nil*'." One brave United States riHeman can put ten if the cowardly slaves of Mexico to flight?yes, lie can 1<> it with a Huieic knife. The last accounts represent, hat Suntu Anna is concentrating forces on the borders if Texas to make a descent upon the State. We also earn with pleasure, that the brave men of Texas are prewiring to meet him?and they will meet him when he loines, we hope, as men who fight for their wives and hiidien, their '* altars and their tin sides " Will not the friends, kinsmen, and countrymen of hose men who have to stand this perilous conflict for lilerly, and their rights, lly to their rescue from the Mississippi I'nilt-tj?from tin? whole Union? Here is a noble ield open for foituue, fame and generous daring. Are here none to be found to fly to the aid of their own Jretliren in Texas, when threatened with desolation and leslructiou; none of the sons of those sires who now reuise in pence, prosperity anil liberty, for which the blood ?f h'osewsko ami i-e l\ulb?1'n'aaki and La FoijcUr, and housaiuls of other brave foreigners, who generously came .?? the assistance of us in our revolutionary struggle, was died? It would be a lasliiigsligiuu upon the U. S. to sillier he tyrant Santa Anna to overrun with slaughter and ruin llieir brethren iu Texas. We do not mean that the Government need interfere?but volunteers!?volunteers! shouidcr your rifles and inarch to Texas !?young men, who have an honorable fame to seek, and a duty to do. Liberty iu a foreign land demands martyrs, if need be, from Republican America?hut our men brethren in a neighboring count) 1/ surely will not be denied our help. We are induced to make these remarks, by the reception of the following letter from a friend in Texas, a gen tieman of considerable prominence in that country, enclosing an account of the late proceedings thereat Y'aesco in the Jurisdiction of Columbia. The letter is post marked at Fort Jesup in Louisiana, Ifllii September, 1635. "Dear F.--Y011 will perceive by the enclosed that tlexico is about to force us into a war, or what is worse, a submission to Military Government. Ours will not fa revolt or rebellion, but a brave struggle to maintain ur rights and liberties with the Constitution which we lave sworn to support upon our side.

(From the Washington, .V. C. Whig.) Issurkkction Stir.?We learn from the Elizabeth 'ity Herald of the Times, that the citizens of Pasquoank county were thrown into a considerable state of xcitcinent, a few days since, in consequence of the iscovery of an insurrectionary spirit among tfieir black lobulation. A respectable planter of thai county havng overheard early on the morning of the Idlith nil., the romen in his kitchen talking, and gained enough from hem to induce him to make further inquiries, lie afterranis asked a black boy, who was present at. the con ersalion, what it was. He hesitated to answer, but vhen told he should do so, said it was some good news, lis owner then told him if it was good news he wanted o hoar it, and he must and should tell, fie then coinnenced by saying that next Tuesday night, (&lth ult.) vas the time the negroes intended to rise, kill the white eople, and get their freedom?that he had heard the legro men talking about it. This boy was then taken villi one or two others he had implicated, and examined eparately by two or three gentlemen. The first, after orne hesitation, and not without some threats, concssed that there was an insurrection talked about? hat though no plan had been matured and no time fix d for its commencement, yet the officers had been seeded, and gave their names. Another was then exauined.i'nd without any threats being used, corroborated the testimony of the first, and both gave the names if those concerned, all of whom were immediately crested, and committed to the jail of that county. A "oinuiiltcc of twelve respectable planters was subsejuenlly appointed to examine the evidence which had previously taken place, and was conducted in a becoming manner, not in the least calculated to alarm or intimidate those who were brought before tlieiu anil sworn, die nature of an oath being first explained to them; but nstead "f giving the same evidence tliev had done when irsl arrested, either knew nothing about it. or were un.villinir to tell. One of them, who atmeared to be much ilarmed, when asked l>y one of the committee why he lid not tell the same story he had told two days before, uiswercd, he had said more then than was true. The iepositiuiis of two white women were then read by the :ommittee, which stated that they had heard one of the irisoners say to another t hut there was a man coming tcrc from (he J\'ur(lt to set them I rep, hut that if he did lotilo it, they would have their freedom any how. The committee decided that these negroes should be iept in confinement until Monday, nth inst., that those vho are free be ordered to leave the State previous to lie first of November, and that, the owners of the slaves ?e requested to send them out of the State, which rejuest will be generally complied with. P11E S L NT A TIO.N CJF THE V A S E. Boston, Oct. Id.?Agreeably to the arrangement of he committee of the subscribers, the magnificent Vase, irdered by a large number of the citizens of Boston, ind designed as a taint tribute of respect to the trans;m ul at it. talents and political virtue ol DANIEL WLBSTEK, was piesented last evening, in due form. The rcrvuiotiial was at ihe Odeon. It had been previously iiinoiiiieed in the pajieis, that the doors would he openrd at 7 o'clock, for subscribers to the fund and invited quests bearing tickets of admission, including ladies. Long before the hour, the doors were beset by a douse : row d of people, a large proportion of whom were ladies. ?The crowd extended all round the building, and tar ihmg Federal strict, in a lew minutes alter the doors were opened, it became impossible to arrest the throng hat pressed forward for entrance, and the crow d rushed n poll mell: hundreds, nay, thousands, including a large iroportioii who iiad tickets, were compelled to go away or want of room. '1 lie House is capable of accommodating more people, with seals, than any other building in the city. When ive at length got inside (soon utter r? o'clock) the House was crow ded to i xeess in every part, the second tier of joxes beiusr oceunii-d exclusively bv Indies. We learn that the Hon. Francis I'. (1 ray, in behalf of the Uoiiimi-Hee, <;n presenting the Vase, addressed Mr. Webster i:i his usual sU le el eloquence lor about half an hour.? On concluding Ins re i uar lis, Mr. Webster rose to reply, and to address the meeting. We did not have an opportunity to heai the remarks of Mr. (May, u.<r the e.xerilitun of Mr. Webster: at tlse moment we entered lie was treating on the principles of our glorious Constitution and the powers of Uovcriiiiienl. lie continued lor about an hour on these great and momentous topics, enchaining the attention of his vast audience, in strains of that trunscendant and masterly eloquence, for which lie has long been remarkable.? It would be impossible to-do justice to the powers ol eloquence and of intellect,-dis-piayi d on this occasion. It contained no-rant, no ar'.iticiu! laboring of words, nothing trivial, nothing Jot auerc effect and ostentatious display : it was fruin beginning to end. a full stream of patnotic and lofty sentiment, couched in the most simple ind soul-stirring language of truth, reason, and sterling sense : in short, to apply the .highest possible encomium, I was Mr. Webster's oft-a.vowod sentiments, expressed in Mr. Webster's happiest style and manner. Alter liiis, it would be needless to add, that.the matchless orator carded his ivholeuudiettce.wilhhiuij-aiid whilst, in speaking, t was so still a whisper could be heard tar oil'?at die close of his thrilling periods, the ample walls would ling- with shouts of applause. iXo orator of ancient >r modern .times, could have been more eloquent, or ivas ever listeaed to with more profound attention or dciglit. Could his words been heard by the whole American people, they would with one voice, and proclaim hint the greatest of orators, and the most sinicrc. and iinrhrht. unit nairioli-c. of .Statesman. We Irust that this address, together with that at* Mr. Gray, will tie published without delay. * The Vase was a magnificent specimen of American m. *:id will remain for u few days at t!>e store of Messrs.

The Courier and Enquirer of the 12th instant, has the following paragraph: " Wo have also been informed on what we believe lo ' be good authority, that M. Pageot, the French Charge 1 d'Alfaires at Washington, had caused an imitation to Le made to the President?probably by direction of his Government?that a simple official communication of the President's approval of the last letter of Mr. Livingston to the French Government, would be received by them as a sufficient compliance with the conditions on which the money is to be paid; but that the President, with bis usual emphasis of language, had positively refused to allow this to be done." There is not the slightest foundation for any portion of this statement. Mr. Pageot "caused No intimation lo be made to the President, that a simple official communication of the President's approval of the lost letter of Mr. Lirinirston to the. French (Joccrnmcut, would br. re.cciccd In/than as a sufficient compliance, with the conditions on irliirh the moncij is to be paid;" and so far from the President's giving a direct refusal, liwith his usual emphasis," or even closing the door to a call for the "oliicial communication to the French Government" of Ins approval of Mr. Livingston's last letter, by an intimation of unwillingness to furnish it in the most authentic form to that Uovernmeni, v.e leci aumonsuu in saying, that if it had been desired, either by the Representative of the Frencii Government here, or by the French Government from our Representative in Paris, it would have been promptly and cheerfully communicated.? (Jloie. Of it Rki.v no.vs with Fuaxck.?The New York American of Wednesday says, " We believe there is no doubt that a demand has been made on the French Government by an authorised American functionary?not Mr. Barton?for the money." We presume our coleuiporary, in speaking of an authorised American functionary, alludes to Mr. Vail, our Ciiargeat London. On the subject of this gentleman's journey, we also find the following in the London Times of the 3d ultimo: The American Charge d'AfFairs' (Mr. Vail's) visit to Paris was on a diplomatic mission from his Government, there not being at present an American Knvoy, since Mr. Livingston's departure at the Tuilicries. Mr. Vail, on his departure from Dover for London, received the salute as Ambassador. Now, we will not undertake to say that the demand has not been made as staled by the American, for we knownot the source from which that journal has derived its information, neither will we deny the statement of the London Times, that Mr. Vail's visit to Paris was a diplomatic mission, but we do say, there is no good reason to be assigned for selecting Mr. Vail to make the demand whilst Mr. Barton was at Paris, and further, thai if his visit to Paris was diplomatic, it was also matrimonial, it may he, that the successor of Mr. Van Bnron at the Court of St. James has, to use a homely saying, "killed two birds with one stone," or that, failing to obtain indemnity in his public character, he has sought and obtained it in his individual capacity, lint until our cotemporary throws more light on the matter, we shall incline to believe that Hymen and not General Jackson, directed Mr. Vail's steps towards the French metropolis. ?A". Y. Courier. We learn that the Commissioners appointed to treat ( with the Western Indians have returned to Fort Gibson, alter having successfully acomplished the object of their I mission. A treaty of amity was concluded by them, between the United States and the CJierokees, Creeks, Choetaws, Osages, Senecas and t^uapaws. .Nothing occurred to interrupt the general harmony, and all parties separated with good feelings. There is no doubt but that this arrangment will be productive of happy effects, it is the lirst time these wild Indians have met upon such an occasion. They have hcrctofoie kept the frontier in a stale of alarm, and have attacked with equal impartiality, citizens of the United Slates and the Indians. We learn that there are three families or divisions of those Indians, who inhabit the great Western prairie.? Those are the Camanches, who are the most numerous, but who have no fixed or permanent villages, and follow the herds of buffaloes, with their moveable lodges, sometimes North and sometimes South of Red River. The Wilchelus, consisting of several bands, some liv- j ing North, and others South of Red River. Those North are the Tuwecash and Wachos. They have fixed villages, and raise corn and vegetables. The Kicawavs are the third family. They have no fixed residences, but wander froin the Cross Timbers on the Arkansas, Canadian, and Red River, to the Rocky j Mountains; and are sometimes, though not often, found j South of Red River. As many di tie rent terms have been i used in designating these Indians, we have thought it would be acceptable to remove the confusion occasioned by an imperfect knowledge of them, and give their di- ! visions as reported by the Commissioners. From some cause not known, the K ion ways did not at* j tend; but we learn that a deputation of their Chiefs was 1 expected at Fort Gibson, to give their concurrence to the J arrangement made. We further learn, that the Commissioners have very j judiciously inserted a provision in the treaty, iuculcut- | ing the dcsiic of the United States upon the Indians, j that they remain at peace with Mexico.?0loir.

Our hopes, however, were of short duration ; he soon relapsed, and for the last week has been gradually sinking. Three days since, he calmly informed me that he was quite aware of, and perfectly prepared for the result; and wished only to make a few arrangements as to his affairs here, to sol his mind quite at ease,as every tiling at home was left as lie desired. This was very soon effected, and he bade me farewell with the same composure that he would have done in taking an ordinary journey. On tl.c succeeding day. and snTce that time, except at short intervals, lie lay insensible, entirely free from pain or suffering of any kind. He yesterday showed some c >n? scinusiu'ss of the presence of a clergyman, by apparently responding to his prayer; and this morning, at 11 o'clock, lie breathed his last, without a struggle; so gradually, indeed, that it was hardly perceptible when lite became extinct. 1 have undertaken that all proper respect shall he paid to his remains, and shall do every tiling in my power to alleviate the distress of his alllicted widow and son. 1 ain, my dear sir, with the greatest respect and sincere affection, your obedient servant, FRAS.
