FROM HONG KONG, CHINA, DIRECT.'
The editor of the N. Y. American has been fa vored with the following extract of a letter writ, ten by the U. S. Consul at " IIonq Kong, April 1, 1844. " Matters and things at this island are becoming more and more seitled, though many seem to be under the impression that should the trade (Chi nese) leave the old seat, (Canton,) it would pro bably be transferred to the different porta lately opened at the North. " The sale of American manufactures, &c., find a ready market here, and will continue so for a long period. "Mr. Cushing is still living with his suite at Macao, and they Bay he has sent despatches to the northward, (Pekin,) and informed the Empe ror that he should soon go up the coast and make him a visit. I see no probability of his reaching, yet I hope he may. " The frigate Brandy wine is at Whampoa, hav ing just returned from Manilla. She touched at Macao on her way." LATE FROM ST. DOMINGO. Ths schr. Victorine, Capt. Bunco, arrived at New York on Monday in 18 days from Jacquer nel, St. Domingo, with the following intelligence. A report had reached Jacquernel from Aux Cayes that the blacks at that place had again broken out and commenced hostilities against the yellow or half breed negroes, on account of the arrival of a great number of them from Jamaica and other West India ports. Almost every vessel which had arrived from other parts of the West Indies was full of the half-breeds returned to the island. It was perfectly healthy at Jacmel, and, as far as could be ascertained, all through the Island.? It was also very quiet there. Guano.?The Clarendon, at New York from Hong Kong, touched at St. Helena. There were several vessels at that place from the island of Ichaboe, loaded with Guano, for England. One of them reported leaving eighty sail of British shipping at Ichaboe, procuring cargoes, and the island was nearly half gone ! An Exploring Expedition in Iowa?The Hawk Eye of the 29th ult. states that Captain J. Allen's company, of the 1st regiment of Dragoons, stationed at Fort Des Moines, mouth of Raccoon river, left that post on the 11th August, on a march into the Northwestern part of Iowa Terri tory, to visit and explore the country between the sources of the Des Moines river and the Blue Earth river of the St. Peters, and the country West and Southwest from the Blue Earth to the Big Sioux river of the Missouri. Sandh's Sarsaparili.a.?The curative properties of Sarsaparilla, in canes of acute and chronic Rheumatism, have only recently been observed and acknowledged.? It was long thought that preparations of the root could only be used successfully in Scrofula and diseases of that sort; but the highly beneficial effects which have result ed from administering Sands's Sarsaparilla, in the most inveterate cases of Kheumatism, have completely explo ded that idea. Colchicum was for a time considered a specific for this disease; but it has been demonstrated that this medicine, in many instances, caiueu the Metas tosis, or translation of the complaint to the heart. It is the direct tendency of this preparation to prevent this fatal result, by cleansing the blood from all impurities, through which alone disease can be conveyed to the seat of life.

The Pole will be raised to-morrow evening between 5 and 7 o'clock, on Maryland Avenue, between 9th and 10th streets, after which several addresses will be delivered. All good Whigs are invited to be present Highway Robbery.?The boot of one of the stagejj between Baltimore and this city was cut last night on this side of Bladensburg, and the contents (two trunks) rifled therefrom. The vil lains were prevented from carrying off" all their booty, it is thought, by the appearance of the fol lowing stage, which picked up one of the trunks upon the road, where the driver supposed it had been accidently dropped by the first coach, but which, doubtlees, had been left by the robbers in their hurry to escape. The robbery being disco vered upon reaching Hall's stage office in this city, a party immediately returned to search the road, but no traces were discernible of the miss ing trunk or of the robbers. The stolen trunk, the property of a gentleman of Richmond, Va., we understand, contained, besides a small amount of money, over $100 worth of wearing apparel.
