From the Corresiandence of the N. O. Dette Flay WMHIs—Up RMIB Heel Krtek. THE 10TH INSTANT—LUSAYANA. Mr. Edator of the Deltar: We hav ben beaten, away up here, a goo.lele of late about the unionisters and the disunionist era, and the compromisters, and a grate mony other politio matters as are gwine on in the sitjy, but we dont aactly under stan the heds or tales of em all: Very latterly we hav hearn the ole demekrat art a is bout to be knocked into a kocked at, but that we dont ginn to bleve, for 1 aint seen a pine not in these parts yet big enul to do that with, and there is some ^wful big, ruff, an hard ole fellers heer, I tell you. And I hearn also likewyse that the whgs is a tryin agin to kick off thair ole name, and takin up a nue one, sorter jumpin jimmy krow agin, as the sayen is. N»w that I dont wander at in the leeste, they kin do that at any time, mity slick, sure. I hearn they ar a gwine to caul themselves Uniunisters, and that thry are gwine to make up and create a grnde unionising party al thrue the South, and the North, and the West, and the East. I wunder if they kalkelate to receve into thair grande parta, "the reste of mankind'' up hear on ro»in heel Kreek? Now, Mr. Edator, you nowe as wel as I, an 1 recken you're older than I, that taint no nue th'uig for the whigs to change there namrf, they havegot usened to doing that, they hiiv kept the whig name a good long time, cause they said it was popelar as the ole whigs fout for there ouuntry and liber tea in llie roverlashun. and bf jocks they haV beVagtnat every V»r mr Mr kin i» pince ihey tuck the name, they hav sorter diegrased it, and now I spose they want to try another nue one. And how is it with them now? As tune as ihey got into the govinment ship I they comensed saling all about ia any corse, they didn't no how to gage her, they hadn't 'rperience enuf, and they've got her now well nigh nocked to peeses. And now, Mr. Edator, as soon as they've dun this, they turne round and cumense holleren to the demekrats to help kepe her togetl er. Cum on borde, cum on borde, they s»y, and let us hav a grate crew, and then we can sale eny whar they say we've got some mity good demekrat Cap lens, and wants there helpe. Pity they didnt finde that oute before they got them selves into sutch a dangrous fix. Well, what would you bleve it is that makes them want to change there name so often? Why, you see, arter a while they soon gits into thair same old ways, like the koone returns to his rambelations, and then the people bekomea undeseved, and down they dwindel to the ole blue fed stok, so ihey turn in and git out a nue name to ketch up suckers about, and they aumtimes due ketch upafue sopetaledem akrais, but them sort they cant kalkelate on holding to long, and we had jest as leve let them rangn it out a little as not, they sune git run down sorter lene, and then you'll see them slippin back very quietly and sorter bashful like, arter a while. But, Mr. Edatur, I have regressad con siderable, I sot out to aske you sum in furmai-hun, but I got on to the whig tack, and there's no tellin whar I would of got to if 1 had a kept on. So I want to ax you consarnin of the whare aboute of the democracy of the sitty about these limes. Up hear on rosin heel Kreek, we are jest as we war, but if things at turned round as we here some of the Whigs say they ar then we want to kno tcAar we art Dan Webster wor onse in a very partickelar •iteashun, and wanted to no whar he was to go- Now we may be worser off than he was, and if matters is as they say in the sitty, then we ar very anxus to no whar the devil we are, if we aint deme krats still, what sr we? They tell us up hear that we ar gwine to hav a nue parta all the ole names ar to be obsaleled and a great Un ionist ic parta ar to take the plaae of the ole ones, and the demekrats and the whigs is to shake hands and lie down togither.— Well, if thats the ka*e, then, as Dan would •ay, where's the demekrat prinsipels to go to? Now, we demekrats hav prinsi pels to gide us, and we luve the Conste tushun just as much as we luve the union but it makes no sort of dilferens with the whigs —they hav all sorts of prinsipels, and they can change them auful quick any time they want to, and they dont kear a dam for the constetution so I wants to kno, if we demekrats jines into this great Unionisic parta, what's to be dun with our prinsipels?—that's what I wants to kno, 'thout any ifs nor ans about it. Now, if they 'speots us, up hear on rosin heel Kreek, to shake hana and lie doun with Fillmore and his follerers in the sittv. its no use in Ulken any man bout it* iaftialera «r BO Poioaltis, and I wffcln'L giv* tfil af ttrfcoMiao Ibf tnat'wottM do it—thea's UM tho roeia fcodl Kntk •h»l h»voto bo ioftwbar woar.

J.&,a*n The Indians of HuiaboMt. We have been informed by a gentleman of intelligence and observation, of some interesting facts relative to (he Indians in the vicinity of Eureka,on Humboldt Boy. The men go entirely unclad all the fe males slightly clothed. The latter are said to be vestals in point of virtue. The dead are buried after the manner of rhristain burials. Formerly a spot of ground in the immediate vicinity of Eureka, was their burying ground. At present they bury their dead farther up the bay, whith er they transport the deceased in a canoe, followed by a long line of others, the train of mourners chanting ths Indian dirge, while they paddle their slight crafts along the waters to the final resting place. A grave is dug, a redwood pLnk or board placed upon the bottom, one at the head, another at the foot, one on each side,— The body ia then deposited, a plank plac ed above, and then the grave filled with oatth, heaped up and rounded off after and feet, like two grave stone* They sre said to be worshipers of tho Sun. In the morning the old men or chiefs go down to the bay, sit down in the water when the young men pour sand upon iheir heads, after which it is washed off They are said to keep Sunday religiously, and will not visit the white settlements on that day from which circumstance our informant thinks lhat California is the land of Ophir of Solomon. He says they could not have derived (heir religious belief from the Jesuits or Franciscan friars, as they never dwelt there. But this would not aeccunt for their keeping Sunday, instead of the Sabbath of the Jews. We are promised some very interesting items up on this subject.—San Francisco Alta Cal ifornia. Printers and Printing.—J. T. Bucking ham, in hit series of reminiscences, in course of publication in the Boston Cour ier, speaks of the importance of tho prin ter to authors as follows: "Many who condescend to illuminate the dark world with the fire of genius, through the columns of a newspaper, lit tle think of the lot of the printer, who, al most suffocated by the smoke of a lamp, sits up till midnight to correct his false grammar, bad orthography, and worse punctuation. I have seen the arguments of lawyers, in high repute as scholars, sent to the printer, in their own hand writing, many words—and especially tech nical and foreign terms—abbreviated, words mispelled, and few or no points, and those few, if there are any, entirely out ol' place. I have seen the sermons of divines sent to the press without point or capitals to designate the division of sen tences sermons which, if published with the imperfections of manuscript, would disgrace the printer's devil if he were the author. Suppose they had been so print ed. The printer would have been treated with acorn and contempt, as an illiterate blockhead—as a fellow better fitted to be a wood sawyer than a printer. Nobody would have believed that such gross and palpable faults were owing to the igno rance and carelessness of the author. And no one but the practical printer knows how many hours the compositor, and after him the proof-reader, is compelled to spend in reducing to a readable condition manu scripts that tho writer himself would be puzzled to read." WASHINGTON MONUMENT.— The Na tional Intelligencer says this structure is eighty feet in height and is now closed in. The cutting and dressing of the marble will be continued during the winter. The work of setting the stono will be again re sumed about the first of April. Goon HIT.—The Boston Post, allud ing to the classification of whig presiden tial candidates by their age of any of these gentlemen has to do with "the next pres idential term." That term is particularly "spoken for," bjr the nominee of the next democratic national convention.

I Allan **r#tfliQn% and oamplngout Kgr night thai while ho was away from tho caiip oh the morning of Allen'a death, he heard his wife scream and on running back, fouud Allen appa rently lifeless. He had been drinking, and went up to Mrs. Hicks with evident designs of huggingand insulting her. She told him several times to go away, and when he persisted, she struck him Upon the head with the wagon hammer, which she had in her hand pounding coffee, and from thia blow alone, without any further violence, his death w«s occa»ionsd. Notwithstanding his protestations of en tire innocence Hicks, as we hjive said, was hung for shooting Allen in the head with a rifle, and that too upon circumstan tial testimony entirely valueless, unless that mode of death had been considered as proved. And now comes the strange af ter developemenl! The denials of Hicks had made such an impression, that it was thought necessary to examine the murder ed body, in order to do away with any idea of Hick's innoconce' by lowing that Allen was indeed killed by a rifle ball.— Accordingly, three days alter Iho execu tion, a committee of respectable citizens disintered Allen's remains. The result of their investigations prove beyond a rea sonable doubt that Allen was never shot. His skull, upon examination, appeared to have been forced in by a blow upon the back of the head, immediately where it joined the neck Pieces of the bone were hanging to tho orifice in (he skull, which were driven in from the effect of the blow. The bone running below the left eye was slightly fractured, but the sockets of the eyes, and the bones in the fate bore no marks of a bullet having touch« them. In all probability the story jVdts told was true snd he is another v'** testimony, Wheat vs. Com.—The1 country depend too much wheat crop, It is by no meal reliable, less to perhaps, thanfny other crop raised. The introduction ol sheep raising, has broken somewhat into the old system, and we hope to see our farmers yearly changing the products of their farms. Wheat has been considered the only crop that would return money. We think the opinion incorrect. 6ume years, to be sure, it pays well, but how often does it prove a failure? The cultivation of corn will to a certain extent prevent the evil likely to arise from thia constant crop. Many farmers think by carefully cultivating corn, they realize more than by raising any other grain.— The fodder is by no means a small item, whiie the crop averages from fifty to sev enty bushels of shelled corn, which sells at from thirty to fifty cents. Let our farmers see to the nutter, that the occasional failure of the wheat crop may not produce so much injury Wisconsin? 1 WAaniHoimJveb. 1st, David 8.

At !a*t 2 smart young limb of the law, addressed him, when the following dialogue took place: "You look like a traveller?" "Well, I s'pose I am—I come from Wisconsin a foot at any rate!" "Prom What a distance to go on one pair of legs. v "Wall, I done it any how." "I say, did you ever pass through bell in your travels?" "Yes, sir, I've been through the out skirts." "I thought it likely. Well what are the manners and customs there? some of us would like to know." "Oh, you'll find thein much the same as in this place the lawyers ait nighest the fire." Sale of a Wife.—The Stockpott (Eng.) Mercury contains an account of the sale of a wife at New Inn in the county of Der by, for five pounds one ahilling. The husband who sold her was Elisha G., a cattle dealer, and the purchaser was Geo. C., a widower. The wife is young and fair, and cried bitterly at being thus shame fully disposed of. Great country, that England. Steam Communication vilh China.—'The iniatory atep in the movement for a regu lar steam communication between San Francisco and Canton is about being taken by sn enterprising merchant of the form er city, who has purchased the well known •team propeller "'McKim," and intends running her regularly between San Fran l«ltto and the Sandwich bland*. struciion of somfc tea steamships to ply between, Europe, Asis and the United States. -ivv ttV Hi* Fw W*uiii«toR T^bwri)i.

A man named Lews attempted to stab his wife this morning at the Museum dur ing rehearsal but she caught (he knife in her hand which was cut severely. Lews was then tied, but succeeded in getting a razor from his pocket and cut his throat, not dangerously. His wife goes by the name of Mrs, Stickney. BALTIMORE, Feb, I, '51. The brig Glamorgan from Kingston, ar rived thia morning, reports that on Tues day last, in the Chesapeake B.iy, off Luff Point, she caine in contact with and sunk the schooner S. C. Davis of New York from Baltimore, loaded with coal, the Captain, mate and crew were drowned. The money stolen from Adams & Co's Express, has not been recovered. NEW YORK, Feb. 3—3 p. M. By the arrival last night of tho royal mail steamer Merlin, we have received dates from St. Thomas to 22 and from Burmuda to 28th. Nothing of importance her advices. The British steamer Clyde, due from Europe, had not arrived at Burinuda when the Merlin left. Arrival of the Canada.—The steamer Canada arrived at Halifax this morning. She left Liverpool on the 18th ult., and therefore brings one week's later news. She brings no news of the Atlantic. Her news has not been received from Hslifax, but in no^ being sent along tho line. WASHINGTON, Feb. 3. Orders have been issued for the sailing of the St. Lawrence for Southampton on the 8th of this month positively. SENATE met, and proceeded to the House of Representatives to attend the funeral of Mr. Kaufman. BOSTON, Feb. 3. Wm. Lee, 80 years old. and for over 40 years a Custom House officer, died suddenly at Sdltm, Massachusetts, on Saturday. NEW YORK, Feb. 3. News oj the Atlantic.—The Captain of the ship Torquin, which arrived at this port last night, reports having seen a large American steamship without bowsprit, under sales, and steering for the Western islands. The Atlantic was, like ail the Collins steamers, without a bowsprit, whence confidence is felt that the vessel reported by the Torquin is the Atlantic. Reduction of Postage Bill.—Tho bill passed the House of Representatives on the 17th inst. It establishes a uniform rate of pottage throughout the Union, at 3 cents uhen the letters are pre-paid.— When not, 5 $ 1,000,000 for any appre hended deficiency in the Post Office rev enue. It is also accompanied by the pro vision, that, in consrqucnce of the reduc tion of postage, no present mail route shall be discontinued, and no compensation to the petty post offices be diminished. This was granted to please those Southern rep resentatives who apprehend that the bill would limit the mail facilities in those States where there was the gratest defici ency between the expenditures and re ceipts. IMPORTANT INVENTION.—Jin Automa ton Sempstress.—Mr. Allen B. Wilson, of Pittsfield, .Massachusetts, has recently ob tained a patent for a machine by which •ewir.g of all descriptions is executed in a very rapid manner, and in fineness and strength superior to hand work. The simplicity of the mechanism, di minutive nets, and the amount of work which it accomplishes, are truly astonish ing. A single machine occupies BO little •pace that it can be put inside a man's hat and by the turning of a small crank, the instrument will sew ten limes faster than any sempstress. It can be used for anv kind of sewing, fine or coarse or for em broidery. Every part of a man'a dress, coat, vest and pan'.aloons-button holes except ed—can be made by this machine, also la dies' dresses, shirt bosoms, caps, collars, &c. In fact there is scarcely a single branch of needlework to which this in strument cannot be applied, sewing ten timet faster, finer, and stronger than by hand.

Last evening about 7) o'clock, a Mr. John Armstrong, produce dealer from Rochester, while attempting to oros* the river at Preston, with a team, broke through the ice and was drowned. He hnd with him two young ladies, sisters of Mr. Gilman, tavern keeper at Preston, who narrowly escaped drowning. They were rescued by Mr. Holmes their bro ther-in-law, who was riding behind them in a cutter. Mr. H. was so much frozen that he was unable to get the ladies into his cutter, and tying ths reins around their bodies, drew them to the shore on the ice. Mr. H. and the Udies were in a oriti csl state this morning. The horses and sleigh were lost. Mr. Armstrong had some valuable pro perty about hit person. TRENTON, Jan. 31.

Prudery in an Omnibus.— 'All have their exits end entrances." It is a treat to see Prudery get into an omnibus. Of course she rejects the hand th.it is held out to her by male civility it might give her a squeeze. Neither does she take the first vacant place but looks for a seat if possible between an innocent little girl and an old woman. In the meantime the omnibus moves on. Prudery totters makes a snatch at Civility's nose—or his neck—or any where—and, missing her hold,rebounds to the other side of the ve hide, and plumps down in a strange gen tleman's lap. True modesty would have escaped all there indecorums. JI Democratic Victory.—John B.
