FACTS IN REGARD TO THE TARIFF, No. III.
The population of New-York, Brooklyn and
Jersey City, forty years ago. did uot amount to
one hundred thousand: at that time Philadelphia
oat-numbered New-York. There were scarcely
any buildings on Broadway nod Chatham street,
above where the City Hull how stands?even ihm
was not then built; a few wharves, only in the
lower part of tie- city, none above Catharine
street on the East River, and on the North River
there was scarcely any. Some yours after this,
Almy & Brown comms-riced sendingcotton-twist
t./ tlii- market lor sale, bin in verv small quanti?
ties, and long after that a few began to make some
?onrimon American cotton goods: There were none
who sold domestic goods as a business on com?
mission, and William F. and Samuel Mott were
the first that undertook to sell domestic manufac
lines en commission in the city, ami they tin' both
"te?.v ii\ ing. Now mark the difference: The city
toul vicinity has increased to four hundred thou?
sand inhabitant1*:, all above tlie City Hull has
since been built, hilN leveled, streets made, and
all below lias been built, ami some parts several
times. Wharves made from UUth street, Last
River, to 20lh street, North River,?South-street,
ami most part of From, have been tilled in : so
have W est and Washington streets, and now there
are hundreds who sell domestic goods on commis?
sion, and our coasting trade has increased almost
beyond calculation. Then we bad a few -loops
where we now have schooners and brigs, and the
wharves are now crowded more thiin thev w ere
then, as much tie they have been extended. All
bid Albany sloop captain was asked the hist sum?
mer how many sloops it would now take to do tlie
liBsincss between Albany, Troy and New-York tiiat
i-? douc now by the tow-boats. His answer was,
that two hundred would not begin to do it: ami do
yon ash whether our increase-of manufactures and
internal communications-has not been the cause uf
all this change .' 1 say it ha.-.; and it requires oulv
an American feeling to bring about still greater.
I want every true American to say, 1 will not buy
an article of imported fabric if 1 can get that
which is made hero, and rest nssurcd but in very
little time every >ucli article will be made here
cheaper and better than can be got elsewhere.?
And the Home League is to do that. In my next 1
will endeavor to .show the greut ad vantage ou r city
will derive by completing the New-York and Krie
Railroad, and thai speedily. \V.
ITT The following communication, although it refers to
Lectures delivered some weeks since, contains matter of some
mtrre-t at all times; we therefore give it place.
For The Tribune.
INFLUENCE OF THE MOON.
In common with thousands of vour reader.-, 1
entertain for the authority id' Dr. Laihix'F.k, in
matters id' physical science, the profoundesi re?
spect. He always states facts fairly, and his iu
lereuce- and opinions appear, in the main, nrtho
dox ami sound. Rut from errors of hasty judge?
ment and imperfect knowledge, even his imilliscicnt
mind seems nowise exempt. One such I would
particularly point out, rospectihgn matter nf some
moment on which the Doctor has tun confidently
pronounced. This, indeed, is confessedly the fault
of his class. They are prone to travel out of the
record, absorb the moral with the material, con?
found the laws of the physical with physics. Surely
no science i- warranted in denying whatever it
cannot demonstrate, nor in summarily dismissing
tin false those common experiences which it - vota
lieswaiit patience to investigate. 1 protest against
so unphilosnphicnl a proceeding, ami feel hound
i? vindicate in tins instance*?briefly it I can?a
professional opinion to which it does great in
tin hi- ninth evening, the learned lecturer is re?
ported as denying not only that tin- .Moon has any
influence on the weather, but al'o as denying the
reality of certain influences on vegetable and ani?
mal life, which have been generally ascribed to it
down from the earliest times. With regard lo the
meteorological influence of the .Moon, I readily
subscribe to that negation; but 1 demur to the
Doctor's denial of its physiological effects. The
Moon has influence on the Animal Kingdom.
To establish the reality of the fnfluciuto contend?
ed for; we have the sidHcient ev idence, not merely
of opinions, but id' facts. Tin- testimony of the
former is not without force. 1 shall not i 11<i1
that opinions, though existing every where always,
im 11-i therefore lie true' nor that this belief in lunar
influence is well founded because it universally obs
tains. A belief, deep-roofed and wide-spread; may
indeed not he founded on observed fact; hut all
tfuch beliefs at e strongly entitled to our consitJe-mr
//o//, if not credence. Into tlie grounds of this be?
lief in particular we owe a patient inquiry, und a
much more thorough and respectful examination
linen it has yet had from lixTtigastronomers; espe?
cially as it is held by distinguished medical men,
tint particularly remarkable for credulity or igno
latice. It is true, there have been doubts ex?
pressed bv some of tin- profession, hut lor these
dmtht.s a reason, other than their justness, may
tairlv be assigned: as, want of observation or ex?
perience in those climes where the phenomena
Besides the dtvaded importation of superstition,
that bo?le of modern science, often 'frightens
grown children into the denial in words of what
lhe\ confess in their acts?the qresence and influ?
ence ot ib.- occult powers. Public opinion too,
mi her favors original views, and readily adopt new
not ions, however crude, that profess to explain the
mysterious or to explode error. Hence thev who
would gain practice and tlie praise of superior rea?
son, instead of maintaining, would naturally dispute
This point. It must lmyesustained itself, therefore,
b\ its agivementwith the facts. \\ut vou.are im?
patient for the facts. Of these, not having at this
moment the necessary hook-. 1 can give but the
briefest indications. It is certain that Moon beams
have a febrile and a frigorific agency. So thinks M.
Arago. Plants in the moonlight arc nipt whilethose
m the shade are unfrozen. Meat corrupts sooner
in tiie moonlight than in the Sun. Says one, " Fish
hung up all night in the light of the Moon w hen eaten
next day, has occasioned violent sickness and excru?
ciating pains." Sharon Turner writes " That it has
a peculiar and unsulutary influence on the animal
frame appears to have been actually experienced by
some of our countrymen. Other nations declare the
same." " Men on board ship," says Mr. Montgo?
mery; '* while K ing in the moonlight with their faces
exposed to its beams, often have their muscles spas?
modically distorted; Others have been so injured
in their sight as to lose it for several months.*' Vc
cording to Mr. Madden, the Arabs think the moon?
light causes opthalruia. Some Missionaries mention
that he who sleeps in the moonlight is heavy when
he wakes and is deprived ol* his senses. So Plu?
tarch. *' Every bodv knows that those who sleep
abroad under the Moon, are not easily waked but
seem stupid and senseless." " I hay? felt this,' says

-olely from this often observed efiecc ?? Medical
men,"' prnc^-ds the historian, " assured me that in
lunatics therein a risible excitement .-it the changes
of this luminary." Dr. Balfour says '' there is no
room to doubt that in Bengal the human frame is
affected by influences connected with the relative
situations of the Sun and Moon. In certain stales
of debility and disease, these are able to manifest
themselves by exciting febrile paroxvsms." Dr.
Perickard; in tin- \\ est Indies, cane" to the samh
A Physician of Bombay, Dr. Scott, writes?
??Tin- influence of the Moon on the human body
ha- been observed in this part of Lndia by every
Medical practitioner." He supposes that in North?
ern latitudes ibis power i- less sensible than in
India, where, he affirms, attention tu it~ effe* t- is
highly necessary. '? No judicious person can
doubt," says Robert Shu they "that the applica?
tion of Astrology to Medicine, though it was soon
perverted, originated in actual observations of the
connection between certain bodily affections and
certain time? and seasons."/- In short, proofs
might be accumulated ad. in ft nit um without in?

Slav eh v.?"The Cincinnati Post and Anti
Abolitionist ; is the title of a weekly paper re?
cently established in Cincinnati, the third num?
ber of which has ju-t readied us. It is quite as
intemperate as the Abolition papers generally are,
und will do more to help the cause than any two
Anti-Slavery papers. The following is an extract:
" For ourselves, we look upon the abolition of
slavery in the South as one of the greatest curses
that could fall upon Us as a nation, and to them in
particular; and, so far from its being an evil, we
look upon it as having done more towards happi?
ly ing a degraded race than all the missionaries
that philanthropy and religion have ever sentforth."

" And I desire to say that it may he a matter
of doubt whether, if the master (of a vessel) sets

Liberated Convicts.?A letter from Meitz
states that M. Appen has organized a colony ru
Remclfing for the reception and employment of
liberated convicts, with the benevolent view of
preventing their being compelled, by the impossi?
bility of finding honest employment, to resume
their evil courses. A society, which already in?
cludes the names of some of the first persons in
France, has been formed in aid of this important
experiment, and several of the criminals confined
in the central prisons have requested to be allowed
to subscribe a portion of their savings towards the
establishment. There are already fourteen liber?
ated convicts at Remelfing, and four others are to
join iu a few days. Eighteen liberated convicts

RonUEHY.?A traveling dealer in porcelain and
glass was some days ago driving his cart towards
a -mall town near 1.orient, when a little.boy, going
the same way, asked him for a ride. Nogues; the
dealer, kindly put the hoy into the- basket swung
under his cart, as being warmer than the carl it?
self. They had not gone far before two footpads
stopped the cart, murdered and robbed its owner,
and then, to disguise the act, drove the cart over
the body, in order to induce a belief that the death
was accidental. During this terrible seem- the
bov lav concealed in the ha-hot ; but as soon a- he
conceived the rubbers were at a sufficient distance,
he contrived to -et the horse off' at full speed, re
matuing in Iii- hiding-place till the horse stopped
at the door of a country inn fivquented by his mus?
ter. The poor bo\ went into the house, and was
telling his horrible tale, when, among his auditors,
tie perceived and denounced the two robbers, who
had disguised themselves in the uniforms oi gend
anjies, but were afterwards recognized as convicts
who had effected their es, ape. They were imme?
IDs Holiness the Pope.?We have frequently
seen the Pope on public occasions, and. like other
curious persons, felt a desire to see him in his
home?the Vatican. Accordingly we made known
our desire to the Consul General, and a week af?
terwards were informed that His Holiness would
give us an audience at 22 o'clock, which, in our
way of marking time, is half-past -1 o'clock. P. NJ-.
Of course, we wen- in readiness at the appointed
time. The Consul waited for u> at the Vatican iti
his court dress, with hi> sword dangling at In?
side. We were admitted into an ante-room, where
we waited till the Pop? was prepared to receive
us. Here the walls were covered with priests,
cardinals and pupes; looking down upon us from
the canvass, ;uid some of them seeming to Whisper
cruel things about the horrid inquisition. But we
felt safe enough under the root of His Holiness.
In due time the door opened, and we were in
regular order presented to Gregory X\ 1. He
vcrv kindlv received us, standing before the table,
which is before the throne. His manners were
exceedingly familiar, and he talked incessantly.
He appeared as well acquainted with America as
we ourselves were. After abouften minutes' con?
versation, we were allowed to back but. of the
royal presence, bowing low as we went. The
dress of His Holiness was a white woolen gown,
buttoned all the way in front, with a cap and col?
lar of the sume- ileep white silk cuffs to his
sleeves, with many buttons nearlv to his elbows.
His shoes were red; mid on the right one was the
goiden cross for the faith ful to kiss. On his head
h? wore a very small white cup, merelv covering
the crown. He is a good-looking man, -aid to be
about 75 years of age. but appearing iti private
much younger; he is tall and well made, having
a hose quite large enough, and increased perhaps
in size by being made the receptacle of much S7iujf,
