" Hailing the Wind."?The Union of this morning contains a long urticle, which reveals u new plan for the purification of the atmo sphere of cities. It i? to be done by means of air tunnels of uny desired length, through which, by means of machinery, the invigoratiug shore, may be forced in large volumes, and at air of forest or mountain regions, or of the sea a velocity of eighty miles an hour, into cities, and introduced into dwellings, workshops, hos pitals, &o., by means as simple as the waters of distant rivers are conveyed to the crowded abodes of men. Epidemics, the writer thinks, might be arrested in cities by this means; and, as a luxury, the pure air of a northern imported into a southern climate. The writer also thinks the United States mails could be propelled by the wind through such channels, in globular pouches. Until the plans of this writer shall be ful filled, we think another means of cooling and purifying the atmosphere in houses might be adopted with great advantage, and at very small expense. It is simply the introduction to the lower rooms of the " elephant's snout." On ship-board the lowest depths of the vessels are well ventilated by means of a little sail set to the wind, and receiving in its concavity the breezes, which descend through a canvass tube to any desired apartment. This tube is con stantly inflated, and in its wagging motions suggests to the mind the idea of the trunk ol an elephant; and hence the name given it by the sailors, who inhale its grateful breath. We remember reading in the newspapers, a short time after the subsidence of the great ! scourge of '32, accounts of the exemption from disease of certain prisons, having high walls and light and ventilation from above. We can not now refer to the particular instances, for they have passed from our mind ; but we think there were cases of the kind in New Orleans, where the cholera and yellow fever were so fearfully blended. Medical men, who observe the sanatory influences of such things, can no doubt call to mind many cases in point, sug gestive of the greater purity and healthfulness of the upper stratum of air. If we are correct in our conclusions respect ing the advantages of this thing, we would urge its general adoption, not as a substitute for the I stupendous plan of the writer whose communi cation is before us, but as a means of tempo rary relief, while his scheme shall be under discussion or in the course of fulfilment. We have learned, with much pleasure, that Miss M. J. Windle, of Delaware, who is now most favorably'known to the readers of Ameri can literature, has, with her mother, removed to this city to make it her future abiding-place. Miss W. has attracted the admiration of many of her countrymen by the graceful emanations from her pen. We recur with pleasure to a review, published in the National Intelligencer some months ago, of a story written by her, en titled " The Lady of the Rock." The reviewer said of it and her, that " in its sketch of the eveuts following the dethronement of Charles the First, and its tracing of these to their un timely results, it links together the old world and the new. The motives actuating the Regi cides, who sought shelter in this country, and all of whom, if they did not come to an untimely end, at least suffered beyond all human calcu lation, are here depicted in such a way as to lead the reader to suppose himself intimate with every, even the remotest occurrence that in any way affects the main drama. On the dark background, the images of which at times attain an overpowering grandeur, are thrown new and pleasing lights, exhibiting in skilful opposition character in its most enchanting traits. In short, we have here a collection of the most varied and opposite qualities that tem pestuous times develope ; and yet, owing to the rare art of the writer, amidst the jarring discord of the elements, there reigns the settled order of a fixed design; and, without being too far perturbed, we see unraveled the thread of each individual's appointed destiny. To an exqui site sense of the beautiful, and an imagination cultured in the best schools, Miss Windle has a power of penetrating through the outer veil of life?a power which, in its development, mate rially serves to rivet the interest of the reader, as well as to impress on all her descriptions a fresh and life-like glow. We believe that Delaware claims this writer. Be it so; but we feel convinced that her future productions will be received to popular favor without regard to latitude or longitude. We consider this story as much a portion of history as were the novels of 8ir Walter Scott; and if we call to mind how few such there are, and with what labor they are necessarily sketched, in order that truth may not be violated, we must accord to Miss Windle more than passing praise, and express at the same time the wish that she will not re frain from writing others of the same cast. Our country abounds in beautiful legends, but to tell them well needs a disciplined and artistic mind, as well as a brilliant and warm imagina tion." We arc sure Miss W. will be most heartily welcomed to a metropolis, the evident destiny of which is to become the abode of the learned and talented of the land. Locusts.?We picked up one of these visi ters this morning, and looked at it as any nat uralist or philosopher would do. We discovered its body to be about an inch long, of a dark color, and about the size round of a large hum ble-bee. The wings, like those of the common locust, were silky and transparent, and about three-fourths of an inch longer than the body. I The eyes were quite large, protruding, and of a bright red color, and it was in quite a flutter i to get away. Citt Rial Estate.?Persons desirous of pnr chasing good residences for themselves will do 1 well to observe the advertisement of Mr. G. B. Armstrong, in this day's paper. - 1 ?' "Blood?Blood, I ago, Blood 1"?How little the gaping and approving crowd think of their responsibility in assenting to the death of a man. The Bloomington (Indiana) Reporter de scribes a case strikingly illustrative of this thought. 44 A large concourse of citizens, of both texts," it Bays, 44 congregated at Bloom field, on the 25th ultimo, to witness the execu tion of Hiram Bland. A procession was formed, and the prisoner, dressed in his shroud, sitting beside his coffin on a wagon, was conducted to the gallows, where religious services were per formed. His confession, in which he accused some of the witnesses against him of false swearing, and denied striking his sister, and accused the deceased of commencing the con flict, was then repeated by an attending gentle man. The prisoner exhorted the bystanders to take warning by his sad fate. He appeared very much agitated, and moaned most pite ously. On his way to the gallows he sung a hymn, in which he spoke of4 going home.' Just as the fatal noose was being adjusted, and the dark mysterious ' after place' gloomed a mid night of death before him, the clerk of the county, Judge Cavins, stepped forward and an nounced the reception of a respite from the Governor. Then there were curses, loud and long, against the Governor, sent up by the dis appointed throng, and, as the prisoner was re conducted to the jail, maledictions were poured forth against the Governor for interposing ex ecutive clemency to enable the miserable cul prit an opportunity to be heard in the Supreme Court." Time to comb Homk. ? We very willingly assented to the brief absence of the President and Cabinet; but it is now time for them to return. We have kept the capital in perfect order since their departure, from the Secretary of the Treasury down to 41 the man that works the wires." But the task is very arduous; and, then, Mr. Fillmore gets all the honor. If our fellow-citizens feel disposed to hail the return of 4' the Government" with cheers and sere nades, our consent is hereby given, but let there be no drinking; the thermometer is the only thing that has a right to get high at this season of the year. Our telegraphic despatch to-day reports that the President is expected to arrive in Baltimore | to-night. We are very sorry to see the attempt made by quite a number of amiable sap-headed gen tlemen to belittle the illustrious Washington, by hunting up his pedigree and heraldry. It is very well in Mr. Tupper, an honest monar chist; but appears perfectly asinine in pro fessed republicans. A Dangerous Weapon.?Joe Snips usually takes out with him at night a flattened sort of dark bottle, which he calls his pocket-pistol. He says he gets it charged nightly. Others call it a flask. We think this is the right name, and that Joe charges himself from it in the day time. We have often seen him in such a con dition that we thought he must soon go off. The other night, as Joe was going home, he turned around a dark corner. 41 See," said a man who happened to be passing, 41 that man's going to shoot himself; he's holding a revolver to his head." 41'Taint, it's a tumbler," said his companion. 41 That's drunken Joe Snips; he s adrinkin'." Instantly both gentlemen rushed upon Joe, and Beized his arms. 44 Why, Joe !" exclaimed one of them, 441 thought you were going to commit suicide. He said this was a tumbler, but / thought it was a revolver." Joe had taken a good draught, and gasped for breath a moment, and then replied: 44 Gentle men, it's both?a tumbler anU a revolver?a revolver and a tumbler. I takes it often, and then I first revolves, and then I tumbles. He, he, he ! gentlemen, it's every thing to me. It's eating, and it's drinking, and it's warming, and it's cooling, and it's supporting, and its pros trating; it's a kind of universality of an affair? it is. I calls it the critter, myself?I do." And poor Joe took it home with him; and it will soon reciprocate the favor?it will take Joe home and stow him away for good and all, and the cows that nip the graBS on his grave will get tipsy. _ # FoRnEST Hall, Georgetown.?The qecond entertainment by the Young Men s Dramatic Association was numerously attended last night. At least one half the audience was com posed of ladies, and a prettier assembly of May-queens, with their fair brows flower crowned, has seldom been seen. Sweet music sounded?then a tinkling bell? and then came the Golden Farmer. This Dra ma was well represented. We must particular ly mention the characters of the Farmer (Mr. J. B. Newton), Jimmy Twitcher (Mr. N. Kelly), and Harry Hammer (Mr. H. Rodicr.) These were truthfully sustained. With a little more attention they would have equaled any acting on the regular stage. Indeed, we are much in clined to pronounce the health-drinking auc tioneer, Mr. Hammer, already perfect. A solo on the flute, by Mr. Scerro, was ex quisite, and enthusiastically applauded and en cored. The comic song could not have been better sung?but might have been better re membered. And last came the farce of Who Speaks First? This moved along pleasantly for a while, and then suddenly stopped. Why? Because nobody could speak?nobody but the gallant (Captain Charles (Mr. B. O'Reilly), who only knew his own part, and could not supply the deficiencies of the rest. So, "The xlTenturo of the bear and fiddle Began?but broke off in the middle"? the green curtain falling on a mystery! Wc 1 were sorry for this?everybody was sorry?the I actors themselves were sorry, and one made a speech to the audience, asking indulgence, which the audience kindly granted. But oh! gentle men, don't do so again ! We love you; we wish ' you well; pray take the means to accomplish ! our wish?for you can. ! A word or two more. The Association has talent; some of its members possess it in an extraordinary degree. We hope to see it fully developed, for their profit and our own. They labor under many disadvantages, which time and brave hearts will remove. Therefore we ask for them charity and encouragement. If every one of our subscribers would bring over another person to our support, thto we would be thriving finely. What say you, frien,'?^ Do you not see that you would in each instance benefit two partiea 1 We Uke pleasure in laying before our readers the following from the New York correspon dence of the Laurensville (8. C.) Herald, in reference to our much esteemed (now) fellow townsman, Col. M. Thompson: "As I said, I became acquainted with the South Carolina represeutation, and that is quite a short list, there not being but one among the thousands who congregate here to do business, such as agencies, legal, medical or mercantile, &c.; thut one is Col. M. Thompson, a native of old Laurens, aud he is an honor to his State. He has commenced the practice of his profes sion, (the Law,) and is doing a good business. He is an energetic and prompt business man, and is considered by the people in Washington a 'leetle' too sharp for the 'natives.' He is one of the best prosecuting attorneys either be fore the Bench or the Departments, in Wash ington, and his success proves it, having made not only money, but a long list of friends. I am not writing a puff for the Colonel, as he does not need it?he gets as much business as he can attend to, and will so long as he continues to discharge his business in his prompt and effi cient manner. He is young, and will in time J ascend to the highest round in his profession." By reference to another portion of our col I umns it will be seen that Col. Thompson is also I agent for the British Commercial Life Insurance Company, which we earnestly commend to per sons desiring to make insurance on lives. The company has been in successful existence up wards of thirty years, with a paid in capital of $3,000,000; and is doubtless one of the safest and most responsible companies in this or any other country. A Day of Pleasure.?The reoent warm days have awakened among our young folks a just sense and appreciation of the pleasantness and comforts of the cool shades at Arlington. Many a party has spent a happy day beyond the river already. To-day, we learn, the schol ars of Mrs. Richard's school, with their friends, are to enjoy the pleasant walks, the green hills, and the wild flowers of Arlington, in each other's society. Mr. IIolbrook.?We with pleasure improve the opportunity offered us by Mr. Holbrook to furnish our readers with the series of articles on "Mechanism," commenced in to-day's pa per . We the more promptly contribute our part in placing before the public this interesting and useful subject, from having seen specimens of mechanism produced in schools, which afforded the highest degree of pleasure to the pupils producing them, connected with the most sub stantial improvement. After affording pleasure and solid improvement to the producers, by a system of interchange between schools, and still more extensively between families, these and various other specimens of art, connected with minerals and other products of nature, can be used as powerful instruments " to in crease and diffuse knowledge among men !" Real-Estate Sale.?A lot of unimproved ground, twenty-seven feet front, and over one hundred feet deep, on M street, north, between Sixth and Seventh streets, west, was sold yes terday afternoon, at six o'clock, by Dyer & McGuire, auctioneers, for 8J cents per foot. Dr. May, purchaser. We learn that a contribution of twenty-five dollars was recently made by Washington Lodge, No. 6, I. O. O. F., in aid of the funds of the National Washington Monument Associa tion. Barnabas Bates.?It is said that this gen tleman is about to visit England for the pur pose of making himself thoroughly acquainted with the organization and management of the British Post Office, and to present to Congress the result of his inquiries, with such sugges tions and improvements as may be applicable to our own country. J ire in Baltimore.?A fire broke out last n'(?ht, shortly after ten o'clock, in a warehouse on Smith's wharf, a few doors south of Gay street, occupied by Capt. Charles Pendergast, agent of the Charleston line of packets. Three buildings were almost entirely burnt out. The sufferers were Capt. Pendergast; Joseph Weath ers, public weigher; Jas. R. Pendergast, ship ping agent; Charles Andrews, public weigher; Solomon, Gray, Parrott&Co., sail-makers, and John W. Brown. Two of the warehouses were said to belong to Mr. Wm. H. Beatty; the owner of the third not learned. Jenny Lind will give two or three concerts in Philadelphia, from the 12th to the 16th of J June, prior to her departure for Europe. The annual convention of the Protestant Episcopal Church of the State of Pennsylvania is now in session in Philadelphia. City Watch-house.?The last was a charm ing night, and had such a soothing influence over the spirits of men and women, that even the watch-house was found this morning with out an occupant. St. Louis, Friday, May 16.?Presbyterian Oeneral Assembly at St. Louis.?Rev. E." Hum phrey, Moderator, announced to the standing committee a report from the board of foreign missions, which was referred to a special com mittee of five members. The treasurer's report was received and referred. The twentieth an nual report from the board of the western theo logical seminary was received, and will be acted upon on Wednesday next. The election of a professor of oriental and biblical literature takes place on the same day. The committee ap pointed last December to report on a plan for establishing a cheap religious newspaper re ported favorably. It was received and laid on the table, and made the special order for to morrow. Louisville, May 12.? Violent Hurricane.

An injunction has been served upon the lot teries of this State, and no more drawings will take place until the court decides upon the qierits of the case. Death in the Court-house.?The circuit court-room at Milwaukie, Wisconsin, was the scene of a sorrowful event on the lfith instant. James Holliday, esq., one of the most esteemed members of the bar of that city, whilst pleading a case, was suddenly taken ill, and before he could be removed from the court expired. His death is said to have been caused by rheumatism of the heart. BY TELEGRAPH. Exprettly for this payer. Baltimore, May 23?2 } p. m. The New York cotton market is unsettled.

[Communicated.] MK88R6. Editors : On looking over the names of the many candidates who have offered themselves to our cltiiens for the office of COLLECTOR OF THE CITY, it may Iks necessary, in order to be able to vote under standingly, amongst other qualification*, to inquire how each may stand affected in regard to the present reforms demanded by our citizens, and particularly to the subject of making all our officers elective, which has lately elicited so much interest in our midst. And upon examination, although there are several of the candidates who, we have heard and believe, are in favor of this movement, and some of whom have made speeches upon the suijoct, yet we are very certain, and we hope all will bear in mind, that none of them stand so importantly connocted with this truly republican movement as our highly-esteemed candidate of the Third Ward, Dr. Chapin, who, as will be seen by the proceedings of the Council, published in the Aatvmal InUlUytncrr of the 7 th instant, was one of the very first to identify himself with this very popular mea sure. By reference thereto, it will be seen that Dr. Chapin, but five daj's after the first public meeting upon the sub ject, proceeded to move in the Council in regard to the matter, and offered a set of "joint resolutions to ascertain the sense of the voters of the city upon the propriety of making all the officers elective;" which resolutions, at a subsequent meeting, after a spirited discussion, were unanimously carried, and at the last meeting of the Board of Aldermen were also passed with great unanimity?thus placing the whole sulyect, with railroad speed, at once in the hands and subject to the will of the people. We have said this much in hope that his real for the welfare of our city, both in this and all other measures that may come beforo the Board affecting the people's interests, may be generally noticed, and that our citizens will show their appreciation of his conduct at the polls on the first Mon day of Juno next, by giving him their overwhelming support. We think wo know that this will be the case in some of the wards, and we hope and desire it will be so in each and all; for in voting fbr him they will be sup porting one who is decidedly the people's man. may 23?It* ONE OF THE PEOPLE.

THE MEMBERS of this Association, perceiving that Mr W B. Todd, in his card which appeared in Mon day's Telegraph, charges the Association with making statements, in their communication of the loth instant, thaf were untrue as regarded him and Mr. Emery, deem it prudent to lay before Uie public the grounds upon which the statements in that communication were based. As regards Mr. Todd, wo stated that the marblo-work of his building was to be executed at New York. This he admits We even acknowledged his right to have his work done whew he pleased, although we discounte nanced the principle of withdrawing labor from the city. Ah toll beinii untrue that Mr. Emery was contractor for the work Mr E. hlm?.'lf is our authority for that stato ment and Mr. Todd confirms it?else what is tlie meaning | of the words "cauting me to }>ay much m/.rc for my work than J would have done had Mr. K. been ahle work in time." It Is here evident that Mr. K. had agreed to furnish the work at a given price?that price much less than Mr. Todd is now paying for it. These words also occur in Mr. Todd's communication : " Before be [Mr E.] let the work go out of his hands. Sir. A1 thisagrees with statements made by Mr. E. to sevcra of our members.
