OURSELVES AND OUR PROSPECTS.
W? be?ere it will gratify many valued friends to bear that the pa?
tronage of Tar Tr.ir.vsn n daily increasing, u a glance over oar
Advertising <'olumu% mil abundantly establish. Our receipts for Ad
vertisimeun are steadily augmenting, in apiteaf the duJIne-s of the
seasoa; while hardly a day passe? without adding thirty to 6 tj
names to oar subscription list. At a season of general lethargy, wnii?
so many of our citizens have temporarily left or are leaving for lb*
country, our accessions ar- of course leas sumeroo- than they were
in the (may Spring-time or probably will be in the alining Autumn : (ml
thev are contant, inerea-ieg, and indicate ? generous heartine.? o|
good will on the part of our Inend? and a kindly approbation of oar
labor, i v the public generally. Several who never -aw u. personal!)
have devoted hour, to procuring the*"bscripti,nof thdrfrieads, a. as
earnest of their approval of the principle, on whieh The Tribune i.

and distribute our whole edition by a little p?-t C o'clock, holding

we have nol heard (except through lac veracious Sun,/ from any
gentlemen proposing to give us a SJ2,..1? press; but if any gentlemen
Imce such i:it- BtlOO and proceed to put it in practice, the public may
rest assured that they will not be a>named of the act, while we shal
be most eager to proclaim it and acknowledge tbekindn'M. But even
y ri we wait for such a token of good will and sympathy until Tht
Jiex shall cease to be the slimy and venomou* instrument of Ixsco
Fw utsm it is, Jesuitical and deadly in politic and groveling in moral.
?we shall be abundantly sustained and cheered by the support wt
aru ri gularly receiving.
Thi Business Men of our city will judge for Usra.elvei whether
The Tribune affords an eligible Advertising medium. If there ar<
other papers better adapted to their use., they will know it. Bu'
while our paper is now equaled in the extent ofila City circulation by
but one other, h e believe there i? aenr whieh i- read by so many of the

Thi: Bank Question is still the ruling topie of Washin?
ton. Our I ite-t private advices do not essentially vary its
aspects, but they express an increased confidence that o

nine-tenths of the Whig Members concur heartily with Hen

that cannot equalize and greatly facilitat ? the Exchanges be?

The Cirv Kirk Department.?The Report ofCornelitu
V. Amlirson. Chief Engineer of the Kiru Department, pre?
sented t ? the Common Council nt their last meeting, con?
tains valuable information with reference to this branch o'
the public service, and some good recommendations as to its
future organization. We make the following summary:?
The;.- are in the nity thirty-six engines in good order, and
twelve in indifferent ordert twenty-seven hose carriages ii
?CM,d oidci. and six in indifferent ordert 4K,4?O feet of hose:
-? text hook and ladder trucks, with forty-seven ladders ann
filly-three hooks. There are at present forty-eight engin>
companies, thirty-four boso companies, seven hook and lad?
der companies, three hydrant companies and all but one hav<
apparatus ami locations. The present number of men in tkt
department is 1,639.
The Eugineer recemmends tho maintenance of strict dis
ciplini- among tho members, n rigid adherence to the laws,
and swift punishment for those who violate them. He re?
commends an amendment, by which tho officer of any com?
pany shall be held responsible for the conduct of hi? men
and another to piovent persons other than firemen from en
terms the places of deposit for the apparatus. He suggest*
the division of tho city into three districts, the duty in end
to be performed by the companies located therein t as ai
present arranged those in the fifth district perform duty ii
tbat*alone, w hile those in the others are c impelled to do dut;
at ull times ami in every portion of the city. The waxt of ?
sutIicio..t police at fires is severely felt and it is suggestec*
whether by paying them a certain salary, money would
not in the end ho saved to the citizens. Too Engineer bears
high testimony to the general promptness and alacrity of the
tin-men in discharge of their duties.
\ZJ* ' Jons HaXCOCK' vvtite? us to state in substance that

prectsc predicament, and that this was anticipated and una?
voidable. What i> to he done about it .' That the appoint
ing power is not infallible is very certain?that the best st
Icctions have not in all cases been made is very probable.?
Of course, some who followed the party w ith an eye to the
? loaves and fishes ' will now scale off; but no Whig in prin
, pie will do so. Line thing is very certain: wherever a mar
becomes disatlected and quits the puny because his persona,
aspirations were not gratified, it is manifest that in h? cas.
tho appointing power did just right; for no man whose prin?
cipe- hang so loosely upon him is tit for public trust. Is tun
this clear ?

The Attack* on the Natt Ageict-?We ba- e not seer.
St hitherto to notice the attack* on the integrity nnd omcal
conduct of Robert C Wetmore which have appeared from
time to time in The Herald and other Loco-Foes, papers, and
which would seem to have been aided, however umctcr.tion
allv. bv th?- extraordinary commenu. offensive and defens-.-.e.
of several Whig papvrs. Knowing- something of the charac?
ter of the assailant s and the motive which actuated them, we
e-!ieved that they might very well be left to answer tfcern
selvea. But Mr. Wetmore's own convictions of prepnety
and the ju*t -?zgestion of the S-rcretary of the Navy that his
Reports should be made to the Department, and not to the
ncirtpapert," having been overruled by the judgement of h;s
friends, we f^el a: liberty to say a few words.
We ?ha!l nr?t attempt to add any thing to die cf-mpietenc-ss
of Mr. Wetmore's defence; no man who reads his 'Card '
?ven in our last car. say that to that end a word is necessary.
Its temper, its clearness, its manifest truth, are conclusive.
But we desire the public to understand more clearly the
baraeter nnd motives of his assailants, and the object* of
heir present manoeuvres.
When the re*?ilt of pending inve.tigntions is rr.aJe public,
t will be {bond that the firm of ' Sccor & Co.' (and by that
Col hang? an edifying tale) have shaved the public many
boosands of dollar* by the corrupt collusion or amazing neg
ect of duty of the former Loco-Foco officers at this Port.
Thov gentlemen are now under the harrow, and the dust
nised by thoir instrument Morton is intended to rover their
?-.cape. When it shall anpear, for instance, that they have
-barged the Government Ttccnty-Tro Thou fand Dollars
or good* which should have cost Klaren Thousand, it will
?? very desirable to raise a cry that all jobbing for the Gov
rn::.ont is a swindle, whether managed by Loco-Focol or
Whigs, ami to divert public attention from the pevulation*
>f the former by a cUmor against the alleged corruption* of
he latter. This is the game, and we trust the public will
inderstand it.
A word as to the instrument* of this notable business: Mr.
Joseph T. Morton, who sends in pri?{?osals to turnish the
tovernnient several thousand dollars' worth of Naval Stores
mi of a pump-makers' shop?ha having not a dollars worth
? f such goods in tho world?was for several years a patron
?f our weekly journ tl. Tint New-Yorker?that is. a patron in
ill but the trilling matter of paying for it. Our collector
tunned him and dunnnd him very per*evcnngiy for a long
time, but his remarkable nbiJitie* in that line were over"
natched bv the verv protuberant bump of rion-payntivene**
in the ?k'ill of Mr. Joseph T. Morton, and ho was compelled
o stop the paper and give up the debt as an incurably bad
?no. Jii*t so in the case of Mr. R. J Todd of Brooklyn,
who we sec by Thr Herald i* abusing Mr. Weunorc for not
rusting him with the public business and property to n large
tmount. This gentleman, after taking our paper for several
,'ettrs and repeatedly promising to pay for it, at length claim*
o have settled off our poor (bitr-pcnce a week by taking the
tei ? fit of the Insolvent Ac'.?Such i, the nature of our ex
lerience of Mr. Wetmore's two prominent assailants?we
neniion it in no spiiit of unkindness to them, but to show
lie responsibility and character of the gentlemen who a**nil
lid Navy Aceat lor not employing them in bis dealings for
?e? Government. Need we sav more .'
DCF Tho Boston Times says that the Decision in the case
if McLeod was brought to this city by an ' express run by
Mr. Beach of the Sun.* It i? quite needle...* to -ay that this
is utterly fal?c. Beach's Kxjue-srs are mostly run on th?
ither side of the Atlantic?It is said that he has made ar
nngements to run a korrr express from Liverpool to this city
>ut the concert! has proved false so often that few believe it.
Zy It our citizens only knew how much of health and
iniovmeni may be secured by a morning trip to Harlem over
Railroad, we think some hundreds of them would try it
laily. Rising at 5, in the car* by 6. a good stretch out
through the field*, and bnck to breakfast at 8?all for tw?
iiillinr??rive* one an excellent appetite for the meal, and
the dav's business afterward. A boat-row or a trip to
Hoboken occasionally, for a change, i* also excellent. Soeh
healthful pleasures are missed by thousands from pure heed
>**ness, or because they are so cheap and common. For
.hame, slugrnrds!
Cj* The annual commencement of the University of Penn
vlvnnia was celebrated at Philadelphia on Thursday. The

Gk.-ttkfi Axosemext.?Two well-dressed young men
?net yesterday in Broadway, nenr Howard's Hot-1. when one
gave the other a most terrible rowskinning. The hero of
? he whip, however, ' suffered some," as, in the clench that
ensued, some handsfull of hair were pulled out, nnd some se?
ven- bruises and scratches were interchanged. The names
if these lictive* we did not barn, nor the cause of their public
endorsement of each Other.
Fire.?On the 12th, the City bakery, occupied by Messrs.
Hart and Bush, at Buffalo, was destroyed by lire. Lo?*
$4,900 nnd do insurance. Mr. Bush had six children who

rescued from the dames by the heroism of a watchman.

Benj. P. Giiiman & Co. was entirely destroyed by tire on
the 1 ltii inst. A large Woolen Factory was saved bv dint

The rire is supposed to have resulted from friction in the ma?
chinery.

' The William Brow-*?Another of the seamen rescued
:a tie long boa: from the terr-.bie wreck of this ship has ar?
rived in Boston. His name is Stetson, and h:s statement
fully corroborates tha: of William M:iler and exonerates the
mate from ai! bla-r.e :r. ordering the throwing over part of
those en board. Messer's story about drawing a knife
to save being sac-triced he pronounces false, and says tnat
Messer hin-."-;: -;<- ? ? : .:. the proceedings. The long boa:

MrRDER.?The Portsmouth Tribune contain* the account
of :'rie murder of a German. Henry Stemshorn, who, w-.th
a party of hi* countrv-men, were amusing themselves w-.th a
dance, during which the- house was attacked by a gang of
row die*, several men stabbed, and Steinshorti killed. The
villains then tied, but were pursued, and three oi them. At?

Storm.?Oh the 5th inst. Salisbury, Ct. was visited by a
violent and destructive hail-storm, accompanied by wind and
torrents of rain. The desolation of fruit and the crops i?
represented to be most dismal. So completely is vegetation
destroyed in mmy places that the farmer* are ploughing up
,' their corn and oat*, and many wheat-fields nre not worth
bancs ting. The path of the storm was about twenty miles
; in length and a mile in breadth, its course being serpentine
from East to West.
Stone is Philadelphia.?Thejournals say that on Wed
| nesdny afternoon a mo-t terrible thunder-storm pns?e<l over

I been received from this city by the Directors of the Salisbury
Mhs*. Manufacturing Company, prmnisinga surrender of the
money recently stolrn from them on the payment of one huti
j ilred dollar* and no questions asked.
HCf The Philadelphia papers say that the reports that
the two persons found drowned in that city have been re?
cognized are untrue. They were evidently strangers in that
I city, and probably came from the country. Eliza Ferrall,
whs is said to have been one of the parries, writes an indig
I . 1 6
nant leite/-, saying thut she is not such a fool as to drown her?
self for any man.
CT* The body of a peddler namod Nicbolslwas found in
the canal basin at Rochester a few days since. Somn three
weeks since two men in the e-.pning were seen by another

open, a few days Intfore his body.

a lottery, and called in r.lso the prisoner, one of their own com?
panions", whom they pretended was a stranger, to be a co-umpire
in deciding the question presented. One of the colored men
then wished Mr. Goodyear to give him a S3 bill for S3 in sil?

\S'j.?KiMtTO.,?. Thursday. July li,
In Senate to-day Mr. Wrioht presented the resolntioQ
of a meeting of citizens of New-York City. b*W _: :bc Fa.-,;
in That citv. a few days since, soliciting the interference of
this governmer.: for the release of the American c:t;:er.?,
now Br.ttsh prisoners *f state at Vaa Dieman's Land. Oa
hi. motion the resolutions were ordered to be printed a_d
referred to the Committee on Foreign Re'ar.or.*
Mr. riXUt-OOl presented a Memorial of citizens of New.
York City, and one of citizens of Richmond. Oswego Co.. N.
Y.. for a Bankrupt Law-.
The resolution of Mr. Ben an an was taken up celling
for a list of removals from office since -1th March. 1841,
?with the amendment offered br Mr. Ma501M. calling f.r *
-.-: of the removals and apwointmenu from the 4th March,
1829. to 4th March. 1841.
The amendment was agreed h>. Mr. Be.vton expressed
his desite of-peaking on the resolution, and at his request ii
was laid over.
An interesting debate bore occurred, which was com
menced1 by Mr. ClaT of Ky.. who said lie would be ?er/
-lad if Senators would consent unanimously to take up the
Loan Bill from the House, as the necessities oi the Treasury
required its immediate passage.
Mr. Cvt.Hors objected, as they were engaged on another
subject?[the Bank Bill)?which he wished to finish 'irst.
Mr. Cl iv explained the necessity of it. He stilted the
estimated amount of expenditures fur the present year would
be twentv-four roioioin of dollar* independent et new appro?
priation*. This was two millions per month, and from ,
statement from tho Treasury of the loth in-t. he had learned
that there was on hand but nine hundred thousand dollars,
being bnrelv a provision for a fortnight's supply oi the wnuts
of fio\em:tien-, and thus the immediate pa*--i^e of the Lout
Bill was required.
Mr. CaI HOCS said he preferred another expedient, which
ho intended proposing: the temporary issue of Trvasuiy
Note?, which .would relieve the Government much mote
speed.]} than a loan.
Mr. Cl ?v was entirely opposed to this, and wont for an
old-fashioned loan, that the people might see how much they
were in debt. He referred to their tardy transaction of -
business, and the advance of the House.
Mr. Calhocn said it wa* effected by assailing the liberty
of speech, and by n most dangerous rule which placed the
right of dobaie of the minority in tho hand* of tho majority.
Mr. Clay thought tho public would not aomploin of it at
all, and for one ho was ready ton-sort to similar means tin :ic
transaction of their business when necessary. The great
-rievonce to the people wa* the unnecessary protraction ut
debate, and it would bo no grievance if, by such a measure,
they did tho business before them, and returned home ?t two
month.- and a halt.
Mi. Kiso was amazed, when most of the time hail 1.o
consumed by the Senator and his friends, that hi- should at?
tempt to force a gag-law mi them. Let him nttetupt it
?(Mr. Clay?I will)?and In- might prepare to stay line
till next winter. He wished the Bank Bill to be disposed of
first, and said his friend* would finish their amendments and
lie prepared for the question on Monday next. But the
other side did not wish to take it now, until some of tbeir ab?
sent friends returned ; and vet thoy were accusing thorn of
Maying tho bill.
Mr. Bl.ntos rose to bock his friends, and opposed nil
?pir-laws or previous questions, particularly to cut off amend?
ments. They could finish their amendments and bo ready
for the question Monday night.
Mr. Clay said the So-mnois had made a proposition
which they know could not bo acceded to. one of (heir tuend?
!win? nevessuiily absent, on account of indisposition in his fami?
ly. He advised gentlemen to keep goi?i humor, and abstaiu
from bullying atid menacing, because if existing rules did not
serve for trie transaction of business, ho was ready according
to the Constitution to make the necessary ones. Hi; gave
notice that when the Senate came out of Executive Svssion
he should move to take up the Loon Bill.
After further remarks by Messrs. Calhoin und LlNS
against taking up the Loan Bill, the debato m as cutoff by
.he expiration of the morning hour.
Tho Sonate then went into Executive Session, and so re?
mained during the day.
In tho House, the Fmntication bill was argued and amend?
ed at great length, in Committee of the Whole. No action
was taken on it.
It is understood that the following '-ipp-jintments were cut;,
tinned by the Senate to-day :
Col. C MAX iii rs to be Governor of Iowa.
Mr. Montgomery, Postmaster at Philadelphia.
TMr. Riddle, Postmaster at Pittsburgh, Pa. Ap.ars.
Hon. HuMFHREY Marshall, one of the early U. S. Sen?
ators from Kentucky, having served from the 4th of March,
1795, to March 3d, 1801, died recently at Lexington, Ky..
at a verv advanced use.
