"TO THE HON JOHN^Q.U1NCY ADAMS. ' On reading hit beautiful poem on the " Wants oj Man." BY COROLLA HYACINTH BENNET. Your vanls, dear air, will aeem but amall, When they're compared with mine My tingle want outweighs them all ? I want a soul like thine. For all the wants that you may find, And yet ten thousand more, Can never satisfy a mind So filled with wisdom's store. I want a tout that in a span Can grasp the orbs on high; The only essence of the man, That is not doomed to die, I want a place in yonder sky, Where you and I may meet, To sing the praise of God on high, And worship at his feet. You do not "want the eoice of praise It follows you behind? You will be thought, in future days, The friend of human kind. And after sires. as thev rise. Exulting will proclaim, In choral union to the akiee, Their bleaainga on jour name. N. Y Herald. September 18,1841. From the Army and Navy Chronicle. THE COURT MARTIAL AT NORFOLK.

Department qf War, November 16,1841. By command of Major General Scott, R. JONES, Adj. Gen. PROM TEXAS. Late accounts at New Orleans, from Texas, bring the following itrmsof intelligence. The Hon. Joseph Eves, Charge d'Affaires of the United Slates, has arrived at Austin. A joint resolution bad already passed the Senate by a unanimous vote, and is making rapid progress through the House of Representatives, suspending all sheriffs' sales under execution for taxes, these executions being considered illegal. Laifee quantities of cotton continue to arrive in Houston, principally from the Brazos. A great portion of it is purchased by th* merchants of that city. A laughable occurrence is thus detailed by the Austin correspondent of the Houston Star. The night before the organisation of Congress, after the city had become quietly immersed in sleep, a messenger arrived from the Brushby, bearing the alarming intelligence that a large army of Camanches, four or five hundred strong, had been discovered near that strsam, and was moving directly upon Austin. All was uproar and confusion. Immediately, Senators and Representatives, heads of departments and clerks?in short, men of ail classes and grades, and women and children, were seen running in all directions?some to meet the expected foe, and some to find a place of refuge. The citizens at length formed into something likean organized body of inilitia, and, under the direction of the o . r UI? ?i... .i_<- I ,k. ....in oecimry ui ar, prrpaicu iv ?? ?? of the city, where most of the women and children had eotlecied in the strong housee lining that atreet.? The Artillery were placed under the direction of Col, Ward, ao as to rake the atreet completely. Thinga being thus arranged, a spy company, under the command of Col. Jonee, eat despatched te the Brushby, and in the mean tima all waited in anxious aoapenac for the foe. Morning came, however, and found the citizens shiveiing in the cold air, and weary with fatigue, but no traces of an enemy. About 8o'clock, A. M , Cot. Jones and hia party returned, with intelligence that ho could find no trail of Indians, and the alarm was at once quieted, the citizens returning to their homes again, contented and cheerful. In the afternoon, however, another messenger arrived With intelligence that the Indiana were aeeeiobied on Little River-, but it waa not known whether they came with hoeiile intentions, or merely in pursuit of the buffalo. The alarm was renewed again, but to leas extent. The Members of Congress from the eastern sections were not a little annoyed by thia event, and their dissatisfaction with the present location of tho Seat of Gov. ernment was expressed in no measured terms.

We can scarcely open a newspaper without finding ourselves startled with a paragraph headed " Another defaulter," or " more fruits of finance," or " gone to Texas," or something equally significant of peculation. In truth, we have been so accustomed of late to meet with such daily evidences of the dishonesty of men placed within the limits of temptation, that we involuntarily entertain a feeling of disappointment when we peruse a journal that does not contain some novel instance of that character. Thinking of these things, we came across ths other dsy, in an exchange paper, the following list of robberiet, all of which nave graced the annals of banking in our country within the past year.

With this sad airay of fitly millions of dollars drawn from the eaith by labor, and squandered by bankers and speculators, staring them in the face, still there is men who have the boldness, the consummate impudence, to demand another national bank? by which they can collect together from all classes of society, fifty or a hundred millions more to be scattered again to the four winds of Heaven, to derange the affairs of the country, create panics, bring ruin, distress and insolvency, upon thousands, and eventually destroy the liberties of our country.

Mr. Sparks, in a recent lecture delivered in New York, related the following incident: Mr. Sparks gave it as his opinion that the purity and patriotism oi Washington's character were never fully appreciated by Congress. The following remarkable incident fully illustrates the character of that noble man. It was a remarkable proof of his modesty that the subjoined letter was never published during his life time, although copies of it were earnestly solicited. A council was held privately by some men of influence; every point of their deplorable situation was discussed, and it was proposed to tell their ?iews, and hopes and fears to Washington. One man, Colonel Nicola, was chosen to write a letter expressive of their views, which letter was to be sent to Washington, and in this it was staled that, nothing short of a monarchical system could save the country from the anarchy and disasters which threatened it; and they proposed to Washington that such a rysteip should be established, and that he should take the head of it, with the power and title of" Kino." In carrying out this plan, they promised Washington that be should have the support of the army and of many mep of influence and power. Now mark the reply Washington made to this.? Here it is To Colonel Lewis Nicola. Newburoh, 22d May, 1782. Sib?With a mixture of great surprise and astonishment, 1 have read with attention ths sentiments you have submitted to my perusal. Be assured, sir, no occurrence in the course of the war has given me more painful sensations, (bap your information of there being such ideas existing in the army, as you have expressed, and I must view with abhorrence and reprehend with severity. For the present the coinmu* pieation of them wi I rest in my own bosom, unless some further agitation of the matter shall make a dis Closure necessary. I am much at a loss to conceive what part of my conduct could have given encouragement to an addrew, which to me teems big with the greatest mischiefs that can befall my country. If I am not deceived in the knowledge of myself, you could not have fopnd a person to whom your schemes are more disagreeable. At the same time, in justice to my own feelings, I must add, that no man |k>ssesses a more sincere wish to see ample justice done to the army than I do; and, aa far as my powers and influence, in a constitutional way, extend, they ahall be employed to the utmost of my abilities to effect it, should there be any occasion. Let me conjure you, then, if you have any regard fur youi country, concern for yourself or posterity, or respect for me, to banish these thoughts from your mind, and nev?r communicate, as from yourself or any one else, a sentiment of the like nature. I am, sir, your most ob't aerv't, GEORGE WASHINGTON. This remarkable letter is s transcript from the first draft in Washington's hand-writing. The following certificate is appended to it, and is also in the same hand-writing, except the signatures, which are autographs of the signers; " The foregoing is an exact copy of a letter, which we sealed and aent off to Colonel Nicola, at the request of the writer of it.

The St. Louis New Era states that the buildings in Marion city, on the Mississippi river, "the same town in which so many eastern purchasers got their fingers burned a few years since, are being removed to Han| nibal, a town some twelve mill s below, on the bank of i the river. Lots which sold at from two to six and eight hundred dollars, and frame houses which cost from eight to fifteen hundred dollars, can now be bought at less than a hundred, lot and building included. When the buildings are removed to Hanoi bal, they will be worth something; Tor there is noiown on the Missouri side advancing more rapidly than this sams place. Its business is already eery large, in a commercial point ot' view, and within its limits is fast accumulating, wealth, industry, population, and all the elements necessary to the creation, at no distant day, of a city.

I I t , From the Army and Navy Chronic!* Nov. ISNAVAL RANK. There seems 10 be much ignorance prevailing amor I the editorial fraternity, reepecling the eeveraT gradi , of rank, in our navy, and Ihe duties pertaining each. The titles of Commodore and Commandi are frequently confounded, and one improperly u? tor the other. The title of Commodore is merely one of courtest it is unknown in our naval laws. The highest gra> established by law is that of Captain. When aca lain is ordered to the command of a squadron, he styled by courtesy 'Commodore;' and Judge Thom| son, when Secretary of the Navy, ordered that a Ca| tain should only be addressed as Commodore wbe actually in a command of a squadron. W hen he n linquished that command, he was to be addressed b his original title of Captain. It has now, howeve become customary, to address Captains in command < navy yards, who have never had the command i a squadron as 'Commodore.' There is another very common, though erroneou practice in our service, of calling our Captains 'Pot Captains,' and it is even recognised in the laws < Congress. The act, establishing a Board of Com tnissioners for the Navy, says that it shall be cotnpoi ed of three poet Captains. The term is also found ii several other laws. It is derived from the Briliel service, and means there that a poet Captain is on that shall takepoet in order of battle, in a ship of th line. Captains in our navy command squadrons, nav; vards, ships of the line, and frigates; and in the thre rivin.-.r.ol U..-I M V..-I- 1 1VT--/--I. . L r...v>r?. 1 UIA, BUU ilUIIUH, 111 Receiving ships, for enlisted sailors and apprentice* are commanded by them. Commandere are the next grade known in oar eer vice. They command sloop* of war, rendexvoos foi the enlistment of seamen, and are attached to navj yards as second or executive officers. Sometime) they are attached to ships of the line, as executive offi cers, where they perform the duties usually allotted to the first lieutenant. In two of the principal Baltimore papers we find the following paragraph: "Commander Q. N. Hollins, at present sojourning with hi* family and friends in this city, has been appointed to the command of the navy yard at Pensacola." The fact is not exactly as here stated. Commander Hollins was ordered on the 28th October, (as appears in the Army and Navy Chronicle of the 4th instant,) to the navy yard at Pensacola, as etcond or executive officer. Commodore Dallas is the Commandant of that yard, All our navy yards are commanded by Captaine, and it is only during their tem|>orary absence that the command devolves upon the next in rank?i. e. the commander. The next and lowest grade of commissioned officers who exercise command, is that of lieutenant.? These are attached to all cruis'ng and receiving vessels, the number varying according to the rate of the vessel; to navy yards, two or three to each ; to rendexvous, two to each; and they also command schooners, and the receiving vessels at Philadelphia and Baltimore. Burgeons, Assistant Surgeons, Pursers, and Chaplains, are commissioned officers, but are non-combatants. Passed Midshipmen, Midshipmen, Masters, Boatswains, Gunners, Carpenters, and Sailinakers, are warrant officers. Professor of Mathematics and Teacbers of Languages receive a letter of appointment merely. All these matters go to prove the necessity for an organixalion of the navy, and the establishment by law of proper distinctions and an appropriate division of duties between the several grades. Intellect and Old Aoe.?In one of his letters Mr. Walsh says,?"The Duke of Wellington is in his seventy-third year. Before the general election; the London Whig writers affirmed that his intellectual powers were in utter decay. His subsequent speeches in Parliament belie the report, especially his reply to Viscount Melbourne in the debate on the change of administration, which reply was absolutely the best. He may be called a cabinet Minister emeritus. The King of Sweden is, I believe, the oldest of the European sovereigns, and he betrays no decrepitude. On the 6*n ult. Louis Phillippe com pieiea ins sixty-eighth year, so little worn by time in frame and spirit, that, for the two years past, even the Radical politicians have ceased to report him moribund or valetudinary. Chateaubriand, the hierophant of the Legitimists, who counts more than threesoore years, has not ceased to write, and his intimate Iriends tell Us that the memoirs of this, 'the most brilliant genius of the era,' are far advanced, and will cast the brightestiight on the most important points of cotemporary history." IMPRISONMENT OF MR. CROSS AT MATANZAS. We have received from a source entitled to full credit the following information respecting this affair, to which we request the attention of those papers, which have given currency to the inaccurate statements heretofore made: Gen. Valdes, Governor of Cuba, has received despatches from the Spanish Minister at Washington, relating to the imprisonment of Mr. Cross, who, for several years, has discharged the duties of Vice Consul at that port, and the interest manifested by the Minister in his behalf is such, as to warrant the belief, that he will soon be liberated. Mr. Cross was appointed to office in December, 1838, by Louis Shoemaker, Esq., the then Consul at Matangas, acting under a commission from President Jackson and accredited to the Spanish Government by a royal exequatur granted by Ferdinand the 7th. After the death of Mr. Shoemaker, (which occurred in Febiuary, 1839,) and before the arrival of bis successor, (Mr. Courts,) the Spanish authorities considering Mr. Cross Consul de jure et de facto, allowed him freely to exercise the Consulsr funct ons. On the arrival of Mr Courts' exequatur, granted by Christins, late Queen Regent of Spain, Mr. Cross was re appointed, and continued to discharge the duties of the office up to the day of hie arrest. Mr. Courts having resigned, and with the consent of Mr. Secretary Forsyth, having devolved the duties of the office on Mr. Cross, he was, for the time being, the Consular Representative of the Government of the United States at the port ofMatanzas. The very high (justifications of Mr. Croe#, as well aa the injury he has received from the misunderstand' ing in relation to his position, entitle him to the very favorable consideration of our government in view of an appointment to the Consulship at Matanzas.?

They have not been in this quarter, nor seen each other foi Jive years. A few mornings since, the fa'her wai standing at the Lowell depot, just as the cars had arrived from Boston. One of the passengers, obseiMrina him, came towards him unperceived and "tapped him' on the shoulder. Looking up, he beheld before" him his son, who had just arrived from Texas. They started from the depot, busy in conversation. They had gone but a few steps, when another peison whc had been a passenger in the same train, came up behind them and touched them on the shoulders. Look ing round, to their astonishment and delight, they be held before them the son, whose residence is in Illinois. The meeting was to each of them altogethei unexpected. The sons had passed from Boston t< Lowell in the same train of cars without having ob served each other.

Yesterdry Messrs. Eyre & Massey, one of the most respectable mercantile firms of our city, discovered that money had been drawn from banks in their names but without their authority, and on inquiry they discovered that forgeries had been committed to the following extent: On the Farmers' and Mechanics' Bank, for $5,000 " Pennsylvania Bank, 2,500 " Philadelphia Bank, 1,500 " Mechanics' Bank, 500 all in the name of Eyre at Ma*sey ; and on the Bank of North America, in the name of Manuel Eyre, 4,000 913^500 Inquiry wasaoon set on foot, and it was found that the book-keeper ef the firm, Maurice Pitcher, was absent, nor was any one able to account for his absence. It does not appear that any of the brokers of this city changed the money; the rascal, therefore, it is probable, ha* all his ill gotten cash in bank notes.? There seems now to be no doubt that Mr. Pitcher was the author of the mischief, as the checks were regularly numbered, and were drawn on so many banks in which Messrs. E. & M. kept accounts, prov- ' ing that some one who knew the business of the house was concerned. We may therefore do a piece of justice, or %id in it, by stating that Pitcher was about nineteen years old, five feet seven inches in height, has sandy hair, his lace is much pimpled or blotched, and his eyelids considerably inflamed; he has light eyes and a small nose. The forged checks were poid on Tuerday, and it i was mentioned to us that a brother of Pitcher left the city on that day, and jt is probable that Mr. P. followed ypstcrdny. From the N. Y.

Telegraph says: "We learn by a letter received in town last evening, that His Excellency Thomas Buchanan, Governor of Liberia, died at Bossa, Sept. 3d. very much lamented/' This (a sad qews, tiyly. Mr. Buchanan, in the discharge of his multifarious and responsible duties as Governor of Liberia, showed himself admirably qualified for the station, and exhibited many of the characteristics of true greatness. An officer of the U. S. Navy, who dined with him on a certain occa' sion, at Monrovia, in company with several othei i highly respectable Europeans and Americans, inclu' ding some British officers, remarked that he never ' was more sensible of being in the presence of a superii or ; and speaking of the guesU en maete, he said Gov ' ernor Buchanan wu head and shoulders above them all. On several occasions the deceased had opportunity to show his contempt of danger when' in the course r of duty, and he infused much of the same spiiil into i the minds of the colonists.
