Coi'R C E. We noticed briefly yesterday the re
sult of the great foot race which came oft' on
Tuesday afternoon over the Beacon course.—
The following additional particulars we gather
fiom the N York True Sun:
An hour before noon the ferry boats began to
bo crowded, and from 12 o'clock until 3, as
many persons as could .stand, closely packed,
dpon the decks, thronged all the boats that left
New York IbrHoboken. The "Passaic" when
she made her 2 o'clock trip, had at a moderate
calculation 1200 souls on board. During all
this time an almost continuous procession of
human beings might be seen winding along the
bank which stretches across the marsh from the
vicinity of the ferry station on the Jersey side,
to the foot of Bergen Hill. The long black
line, viewed from the neighboring heights, re-,
sembled a colony of ants on a foraging expedi
tion. The more circuitous carriage road was
thronged with vehicles running through all
gradations of style, from the handsome ba
rouche and pair to the rough Jersey wagon
ilragged by tiiree horses abreast; and the shaky
carryall jogged along by a quadruped more fit
for an inside passenger than an outside slave.
Having surmounted the break-neck flight of
stairs which forms a scaling ladder to the sum
mit of Bergen Hill, without bodily injury,
though at a fearful expenditure of wind, we
reached the course a few minutes before the
time appointed for the commencement of the
three mile race. Already the stands, including
several extra platforms erected for the accom
modation of the multitude, were nearly full,
where at least five thousand people were ga
thered in front of the grand stand and dispers
ed over the course.
About 2 o'clock the men who had entered
for the three mile race, ranged themselves in
front of the judges'stand. They were four in
number: Edwin Brown, Ambrose Jackson, (an
[English runner,) Fowl and Myers. The fol
lowing was the result.

Eighth Mile—Same as the seventh. Time,

Ninth Mile—Same as seventh. Time, sm.
3o seconds.
Tenth Mile—Barlow came in first, receiving
She first prize; Steeprock, the Indian, second;
Greenhalgh third, and Gildersleeve 4th; Mc-
I Cabe was sth. The tenth mile was performed
! in 5.27, if we rightly understood the judges.
Barlow ran the ten miles in 54 minutes and
?1 seconds, which we believe is the shortest
I time in which the distance has ever been ac
complished by the limbs of man.
The Indian, Steeprock, ran most gallantly
| and was not more than 80 or 100 yards behind
Barlow when the latter roaclied the winning
j post. During the running of the last 3 miles
Steeprock gained at least 150 yards upon Bar
low, and had the race been extended another
mile, would probably have been the winner.—
Considering the training he has had his run
| ning was more extraordinary than that of Bar
Greenhalgh ran in about 60 yards behind
the Indian, and about the same distance ahead
of Gildersleeve, to whom lie kept close during
the whole race, probably with a view of trying
his mettle should the other Englishman give
I out or the gallant fireman attempt a "rush" at
the close.
Gildersleeve, whoso indomitable spirit, in
►spite of a severe cold which it is said aft'ectod
his lungs, carried him nobly through the race,
appeared much chagrined at his defeat. His
friends had backed him freely, and of course
lost their money. He looked ill after the race
and seemed to suffer from the effect of his ex
ertions. Gildersleeve ran the distance in 65
minutes and 55 seconds, which is better tune
than he made in the formor race.
McCabe ran the ten miles within the hour.
It is doubtful if five pedestrians could be
found superior as a body to the first five in the
race of yesterday.
Taylor performed the ton miles, but not with
in the hour, we believe.
In the former race, of which Gildersleeve
was the winner, ten miles were run in 57m
1 l-2s.—now in 54m. 21s.—difference 2m.
40 l-2s.
There was some talk on the ground about
Stannard challenging the winner—but it must
have been a joke. The Major can run 10
miles within an hour, but not within 55 min-
I utes. In a twelve or oven an eleven mile race
the Indian would be a troublesome opponent.
At one time during the day it was estimated .
that there were 25,000 people on the ground. !
The Old Countryman, published in this city. j
gives t.n account of several foot races in this |
country and in England, in which George Se-'
• ward, formerly of this city, was one of the!
' parties, and generally victorious. Seward is,
j without doubt, the fastest pedestrian for any j
j distance not exceeding 500 yards, in the world.,
He is 27 years of age, 5 feet 7 inches in height, j
muscular, and a line made man, with a good j
face. His weight is 169 pounds. It is said of j
him that he won every race that he ran in this
country, from 1838 to 1843. He arrived at
Liverpool in June, of '42, and since that time
has run in various places, some 1-1 races, win
ning, according to the Old Countryman, some
•£3OO. It is not reported that he has been un
successful except once, in any but hurdle races.
The last race that lie ran was against Robin
son, of Newton Moor, a distance of 100 yards.;
His time is given as nine seconds and a quar
ter, when lie beat Robinson about two yards.

NEW PUBLICATIONS. "Virgil with English
notes; for Classical Schools and Academies, by-
Francis Bowen, A. M." Of the many editions
of Virgil that have appeared within a few I
years, scarcely one lias been equal to the ok!
Delpliin edition. The only improvement of;
many, consists in having substituted meagre!
and indifferent English notes for good Latin
ones; while others in following out this impor
tant feature have raked together notes from i
every department of classic literature, as if the j
mere amount given could compensate for want
! of congruity and not unfrequently of relevan
cy. We are in favor of English notes, but we j
! do not like to see them paraded for a display of
! erudition which is often fictitious, and corn
! posed of different shreds collected at random
j and tacked together liko the odds and ends of j
[ a rag-bag—but we wish them "all of one color \
j and an even thread." The man who attempts
I to illustrate a classic author should collect ma- i
terial from every proper quarter, and be able j
! then to shape and construct with the genius of |
1 a master-builder. Mere research, however di- j
I ligent, will not suffice for the editing of a clas-1
sic author. In the work before us we have j
| evidence that Mr. Bowen lias the industry and
j ability requisite for tbe task bo lias assumed.— 1
j He has been careful to avail himself of the la-!
| bors of others, but with judgment and proprie-1
j ty. Possessing a thoroughly original and ana
lytical mind, he has resolved the ideas of others,
and rejecting the dross, lias blended them with
his own thoughts, and impressed upon the
whole his own living image. There is unity
] and identity stamped upon the entire work;!
j and from beginning to end yon feel it is the j
| labor and production of an original, vigorous
| intellect. Seldom have we seen more clear j
! conception and greater power of condensation
without obscurity, than aro to be found in this
i work. The notes too, while they illustrate the
f text, are calculated to give the student a taste
! for the charms of English poetry. Besides the [
! remarks explanatory of the text, the Bucolies,!
{ Georgies, and /Eneid, are severally preceded
i by a short, yet able dissertation on the kinds of
j poetry to which they respectively belong.—;
j There is also a life of Virgil. The work is a
| beautiful specimen of typography, and is pub
lished by Jas. Munioo ft Co., Boston. It may
be had of Gushing & Brother.
The same publishers have just issued a trea- J
tiso on "Greek and Roman Metres;" translated j
! from the German of Ed. Munk, by Professors
Beck and Felton, of Harvard University. This
work unfolds in a concise, yet thorough man
ner, the metrical systems of the Greeks and :
I Romans; and is decidedly preferable to the |
1 work of Hermann which is too ponderous and
J mystical. It supplies a want long felt in our
j colleges. Its typographical appearance corres- 1
' ponds with its merits.
Professor "Beck's Latin Syntax," by the j
same publishers, is chiefly from the German of
: C. G. Zumph, and is tor the most part an ex-,
celicnt treatise. We do not object to placing
all the rules governing any case under the gen- i
eral head of that ease, but we think it would J
have been more systematic, and equally as J
j agreeable to the philosophy of the language, to j
i have grouped the cases in the syntax in the j
same manner in which they are placed in the J
| inflection of a noun.
[For tlic American Republican.]
I Messrs. Editors: — Much has been said of late
in regard to foreign influence, naturalization of j
foreigners, &c. The evident evil growing out
| of the speedy naturalization of foreigners, and
their combined action as foreigners, have been I
the causes which produced this result. That
J men have tlio right of voting who
have been here but a very short time is un-
J doubted. This, of all evils resulting from our
present naturalization laws, is probably the
greatest, for it disfranchises an equal MIM
| her of American citizens of their birth-right. —
| But this to an extent must be charged upon
J ourselves, or rather upon our politicians; for
| they, in hot haste to manufacture voters, are
ready and willing to assist in naturalising all
who will vote their party ticket.
Now it appears to me, that if our naturali
zation laws were so framed, as to give to the
naturalized citizen no right to vote till a cer
tain number of years after his papers were fi
nally drawn, it would free us of this evil; for
politicians would be unwilling to risk the
changes of opinion, which time might produce.
As it is new, each parly has its naturalization
committee for the speedy transforming of pau
pers and convicts into American citizens. I
think the plan proposed would remedy this evil, j

NEW.YORK. Returns from all the counties J
1 in New York (56 of the 69 official) make i
Folk's majority 5,160 in the State. Wright's
majority will he about 10,000. There were
over 15,000 Abolition votes cast.
[For the American Republican.]
Messrs. Editors: —Knowing that the columns |
of your paper arc open to every true lover of i
his country, who may, through its medium, de-1
sire to offer alfcw suggestions to his fcllow-citi- j
zens, 1 hope yon will indulge me by the inser
tion of these few lines. It is very evident by |
the olcetion returns, that gross frauds have been
practised on the ballot box, in the late elections
held in the different States. Something must
be done to remedy this growing evil. In look
ing over your paper of the 20th inst,, 1 pci
ecivod a communication, in which an opinion
is expressed by the writer with regard to the
propriety of imposing an impost duty on all
emigrants coming to our country; a sort of re
striction, amounting nearly to prohibition,!
which he thinks would effectually prevent tire
poorer class of emigrants from landing on our !
shores. In this opinion I agree with the wri
ter, but bog leave to offer a suggestion, which ,
no correspondent lias as yet offered to your 1
readers. It is well known, I believe, that both
parties, Whig- and Democratic, have been in
the practice of paying for the getting out of
the naturalization papers of those foreigners
whose term of residence has reached the peri
od designated by law, upon the condition that
their votes should be cast for that party by
whom their rights of citizenship were obtained.
Now if the law should be so framed, as to of
fer no inducements to politicians of either par
ty to go to the expense and trouble of proem ing
these papers, (a great portion of the foreigners
being either too ignorant to appreciate the val
ue of the privilege of voting, oi too careless to
enjoy that piiviloge,) it would, 1 think, have .a
most effectual tendency to prevent foreign
ers from exercising any injurious influence over
our elections; and those foreigners who suffi
ciently esteemed the greatest privilege of free
men, (that of choosing their own nilers,) to
become citizens would, 1 have no doubt, be
come as true Americans in feeling as the na
tive born citizen of the United States. My
suggestion is this: Instead of permitting for- !
eigncrs to vote as soon as they are naturalized, '
the law should prevent them from voting until
the term of three years after the period of their
obtaining their papers of naturalization. Were
this a law, and the law in full effect, politicians
would never be so very anxious about out for
eign emigrants becoming citizens; and there is!
no doubt that such a law as this, substituted
for the existing laws, would, as 1 have said,
prevent much illegal voting and fraud, so de
moralizing in their effects. Would the wards
in organizing the American Republican Party
endeavor with all their • ft'orts to place the par
ty upon a broad and substantial basis, there
is no doubt that all true Americans would go i
hand in hand for the repeal of the present nat
uralization laws, and for the substitution of
others less liable to abuse by political dema-
I gogues. It is worse than folly to say that no
| remedy is needed, for any person who reads the
| public prints must be aware, that the present
laws are terribly abused. The American Repub
lican Party is, and must be, the paityof every
; honest man who wishes to preserve pure, that in
! strument of freedom, the liallot box. No dis
tinction should be made; we want every one
who goes for his country, whether Whig or
Democrat, native or naturalized. Let them
all unite as a hand of brothers for one noble
and patriotic end, and that end must and mill
I be attained.
[For Uiu American Republican.]
Messrs. Editors : —l wish to enquire, through
the medium of your valuable paper, if the
public night schools are to be opened this win
ter. I would rospoctfully call the attention of
the proper authorities to the great want of
; such for the apprentices of our city; for to my
knowledge there aro many sadly deficient, and
some cannot even read: and we must remem
i ber that those boys in a short time will be
voters, and, if ignorant, must become the tools
of the aspiring demagogue. lam aware that
jirivate schools are open; but remember, there
i are many who cannot afford to pay the charge.
I feel confident tiiat if a cheap school were
opened, there would not be so many gangs of
boys at corners, figuring under the names of
Gumballs, Boilers, &c. Open a school for
them, and parents and masters will induce
them to attend.
season seems to have fully commenced at Cin
cinnati. The Gazette says:—Ycatinan & Row
an were first in the field this season, and have
cut up 3800 since they commenced. Miller &
Brown have cut 1732 head, and the other hou
ses varied from 150 to 1900 head each. The
number cut up so far this season, altogether, is
little short of 12,000 head. Many of these
were unusually large for early hogs, and most
of those which we saw, were fine stock. A I
considerable portion of them are packing on !
drovers' account. Of those cutting by the j
packers for themselves, a largo portion is to 5
bo made into bacon, to fill early orders. Among ;
the prices paid for different lots, wc rate the
following, viz: $2.50. 2.60, 2.621, 2.65, 2.68, j
2.70, 2.75, and for one small lot, averaging 215
pounds, $3. These prices aro above the present |
views of our packers, but hardly meet those of |
diovcrs. There are several eastern packers i:i;
the city, but, so fur, only as "lookers on."— |
With a four to six months' supply in New j
York and Boston, they do not seem very desi
rous of laying hold at prevailing rates. And
drovers, on the other hand, with the knowledge
they have as to the number of hogs feeding
this year, seem, some of the largest of them at
least, to think that packing on their own ac
count is better than selling at less than $2.75a3.
dent of the Boston Post accuses Brother Himes,
the Millerite preacher, of having levied heavy
contributions in money and goods on the disci
pies, for his own peculiar benefit. It is said
that a colored man gave $2OOO to the cause, 1
and a grocer on Pleasant street $5OO. Several
women who kept boarding houses in Boston,
have, it is said, been induced to turn away pay- j
ing boarders to take Second Adventists for no-1
thing. j
sines a man named Samuel Slater was com- !
mitted by the Court of Quarter Sessions of Phi- j
ladelphia for contempt. This excited Iris friends, ;
who got up a petition for his release, procured j
a large number of to it, and on Wed
nesday had it [(resented, through counsel, to j
the court. Judge Parsons replied that the court !
had contemplated releasing him that morning,
but the presentation of the petition looked so
much liko an attempt to influence the court hy
a popular appeal, that they would reconsider
their decree. The petition was finally with
drawn after some severe but appropriate rc- j
marks by the court as to the impolicy of the ]
course pursued by those engaged in getting it j
up. Slater was subsequently released by order ;
of the court.
IMMIGRATION. The N. Y. Express gives a|
tilde of the number of immigrants into this I
country and Canada from Great Britain alone,
during thirteen years preceding IS 12. The
great mass of the immigrants into Canada cross j
the frontier and come into the United States.
The total into Canada was 321,808; into the j
United States, 337,632 —being an average of
about 54,000 a year into the two. Since that
*me, however, (IS 12,) the immigration has
largely increased. It will he homo in mind that ;
this statement only includes immigrants from
Great Britain. As the largest proportion by
far is of men, it is not unfair to,ostirnate four- j
fifths as males, or about 40,000 a year. Of
these, probably 20,000 are naturalized every \
year; so that each one may he enabled to judge
for himself of the immense influence these in- J
dividuals exercise in a short time over the ties- i
titties of this country.
The Zanesvillo (Ohio) Becorder of the 17th |
inst. says, tint Mr. Ileece Davis, an old and
respectable citizen, who resided about seven
miles from that place, on the edge of Perry \
county, hung himself to a rafter in his barn on |
Saturday morning. Some years since he and
IMS wife separated, and ho lived with his cliil- ;
dren, she residing in the East. He being a
warm friend of Mr. Clay, approached the polls
on the t'ay of election, to cast his vole for his
favorite candidate, hut a person challenged his
vote, on the ground as was understood of his
not being where his wife resided, and the old
man had to he qualified. This occurrence, it
is said, so troubled liim that it led to derange
' ment, and then followed the sad event now re
; corded.
zette says there resides in Front street a gen
tleman who in Castle Garden fired a ball from
a rifle at sixty yards distance into the centre,
and in a successive shot another hall on the
other, so as to fasten them together. The same
! at the Thatched Cottage, Jersey city, made a
1 trifling wagfr of 16 to 1, that lie would with
a duelling pistol shoot into the size of a dollar
at 15 yards distance. He hit the exact centre,
j drove the nail, and had a sixpenny piece been
placed on the centre, and its edge traced with
a penknife, the centre could not have been cut
; out more perfectly. He has also hit a visiting
card 13 limes in 15 shots at 10 paces. He lias
killed at sea 12 peterels in 14 shots; the size of
the body of this bird is so small that il is sup
posed by many that it is impossible to hit it.
