As the wind? are unfavorable for my passage to the Moorish Coast, I give you a glun-e at the fortifications hep?which, aft.-.- all, no description can do justice to. Galleries scooped out of the solid mountain, batteries perched on di/..-.v plat? forms, covered ways now w hulivg in /ig-zag up the steep face of the rock?then dashing down steps that are as nearlv perpendicular as steps can be?sometimes lost in the long subterranean passages only lighted by portholes cut through the solid i ?ck. and again emerging, on a green bank, in the glorious sunshine?a little nook perhaps carpeted with thick short grass and wailed in by rough frowning ciitTs or oilier batteries, yet, so bright and tranquil that all the pageantry of iron war seemed placed then; in ornamental contrast, rather than for actual use. In good season, but not quite so early as we had appointed, our party set out. Three of us walked?the fourth a poet, only he. would nc^/cr take the trouble to write, as some one said of him?w as on horseback, attended by a servant, one i of those ' scorpion ' Englishmen who coxld hardly speak the I language. VYc rallied Mr. N. on his aristocracy, when we first set out, in taking a horn?a donkey was the only quad? rupel that in Gibraltar was thought to have a taste for the military ways we were about entering on?and in any I case, much was to be seen that was too hard even for a j donkey. Still, the surprising labor that has been devoted to the purpose, hns enabled even horses to attain the sum-nit of thw mouulain proper?though not exactly the highest peak. At an arched gateway of the old Moorish castle, we found a sergeant in the livery of his sovereign lady, Victoria, who, for ' a considcrati >n. wa? very w illing t>> perform the duty assigned : him?thai of conducting hs through the '. cTcaTations.' Passingalonga 'covered way." which was a road sunk ' down go far below ;ho surface as to hide those in it from the ' observation of any one a few rods off. we came to a gate in j the ?de of the mountain. Our courteous sergeant unlocked ! titis. and we entered a gallery some twelve feet wide and as many high. On the left were in due succession several em? brasures. Some of these were moderate-sized rooms.; others mere port-holes, according to the distance of the passage from the outside of the rock, which probably averaged twenty feet In each of these embrasures was a ca mbn. These apertures in the face of the rock arc the only evi? dence of military strength that is seen on the outside of that section of the mountain. Our friend, Mr. N., kept his horse throughout the first, and most of the second gallery?o.:cu sionallv dismounting to .'?ok down from the embrasures ??i) or (iO'i feet perpendicularly into the Bay that " brightly, darklv, beautifully blue," laved the base of the mountain. I 1 do not know w hether the quotation is correct, as I haw a talent for getting them wrong, but I am sure the description ? is. The day ? as calm, and the tranquil waters were smooth as a mirror. At the terminal ion of the fir-t "covered way. a narrow terrace had been converted into a battery . Nothing could, be neater than the well-kept gun-?the .-tone pavement that supported the carriages?the well-built stone wall their muzzles >iil> peeped ovw?the high pyramid of balls?a--:d whai delighted my eyes much more than ah that, the greea sward that filled up the rest of the narrow space, it was so still and retired, that one was almost persuaded these engines of war had got here by sonic accident and had been forgotten. Another - covered way' and another gallery nearly half a mile "!-? length, with the same grim display of cannon, led u? up to the vicinity of other batteries, at nn eiovation of 700 feet above the mm. We Stepped out at one place on a natural platform of r.a-k a few feet in diameter. A poiut of lock was in front, round which tan a very narrow balcony. Of curse, we ad made the circuit?r. >t for any particuhi: purpose, but because all travelers feel bound to crowd as much fatigue and inconvenience into a day as possible. A spiral staircase, commodious enough, but very dark, and winding-dowK the inside of a well ou a large scale. (I can think of nothing efce like it) led us into the- heart of the rock, as it .seemed to us. But as usual, we were only a few 1 feet from the face, though several hundred above the water, nul a great depth beiow the surface?for you understand I hope that we have been skirling the side of the steep, and gradually ascending; with only so much of the rock between us and the day as those who planned this system of internal improvements thought would leave them cannon-proof. inciple-s of the Government.

I all l bad forgotten you at the bottom of a Jeep weil that lets j you into acbam!*er, cut like all the rest of the hard rod., and called Lord Cornwallia' Hail.

There was no entrance then-, however.

St. < Seorge's Hall i- larger, and occupies a kind of natural tower of the rock : for the six cannon it contain- are ranged on opposite sides of the ball. These are only tweary-four pounders, the general calibre of the guns. W e had traversed about a mile of these under-ground pn<?nge*. and were satisfied?though we hail not ev: rred . them nil?t^go on to the signal station in upper air. Ou i noticing some pieces of agate that wo saw in the rock, we I were told that a whole skeleton', presumed to be human, J was found embedded in limcst >iw bv some workmen on i gagod in blasting on the c?c side of the n?-k. It is re?tn.:i 1 :hf bora's are frequently found in masses of the pick, but it does not seem quite pro-.o-l that they are those of the human family. Those that have been taken for them, are by many believed to belong to the monkey tribe, who have colonized the Kock. We saw a number of them about tho j c!:t"'s. but not very near. It i- singular thos.; animals shou! i be found no where else in the Spanish Peninsula, and bo so numerous here. That, and the additional circumstance ?f ) their appearing nun disappearing at intervals, has in luced a popular belief that they cross over to the African coast under tho Straits. It is probablo they tako shelter at rimes from the rainy weather in the unexplored recesses of St. J .Michael's Cave. The walk to the sigi.ai station w-a* excessively fatiguing. I ; Wo beguiled the way by gathering wild flowers and snail : shells; tut after ail we wished for the aid of the much j despised donkeys, and ere.*! thought o'.;r friend N. w as a ' ser.si!)le personage, wh'-n. bv some romid-al mt way, ins vijj i lant servant always brought forth ids black steed wherever it was posr.'ble to use hir:. It was offered to me. bur i had started with a determination to walk, and induced the other pedestrians to do likewise; so there was no way for it bat ; to resolutely insist that walking two or ihr?.** niilvs u-> a I steep hill was a delightful exercise. The road makes seve? ral sharp angles, for it has been gained with great labor from '? the steep hill-side, and makes several detours before it reaches the summit. Tho summit, however, once gained, the :; xg. nificent view it commands fully repays the toiL In one di? rection the eye wanders far t" seaward, unrelieved excopt ; by perhaps a skip or two; one may b? gliding along the base as you look down the natural wall. Far down the cliffs an i : more at the right hand is an enchanting wilderness of e. t_-. un l gardens, and quaint houses. Roads ihn ad in a just norcopti'le line, ami fairy bridges cross places that never seemed destined to be visited by man. In the midst of this noble prospect, in her frame of hills and villages, lies the Bay of Gibraltar. Every thing looks smaller from our eagle's perch, and more beautiful. A ; hundred sail r-.f all Rations and s'.-.es are riding list ? a flack of birds on the calm blue water; and when some boat passes from one to another, it looks like a nutshell. The table summit is not the least interesting par: of the scene. A level space on the top o: tin* mountain, at least 1000 feet '. above the sea, walled at rhu very brink of the precipice, just large enough to hold a little cottage and an old Moorish tower?it is the most isolated spot t!ia" can be imagined. Talk of hiding in a sweet, sequestered valley. Who1 I tor., hermit. I will establish myself o.a th" peak of a mountain; ami live alone with Nature. The Sergeant who has charge of tho signals had a bluff*, good-natured face, resembling a pi?*f:ro I have seen some? where of Henry VIII. before, ha took to improving the ! morals of the Church and beheading his wives. He had a great many pretty articios made trenn t:: ? 'rock;,1 among ' oilier things 3 three-gun ba:t '"nr. The miniature cannon, carriages and platform were of the variegated agate that i> fo tu 1 about the Rock and in the caverns in great abundance, but not. as s th':.': abroad, :!:?? principal mat-r:*?! of i the mountain?that i.- common limestone. After sense ri'freshmcnt-w.> went to St. Michaers Cave, ' n great natural curiosity, nut fai from the signal station, j We were not prepared to penetrate it far. re>r eve!. *?>.? it to | the best advantage. It is full of fissures and narrow passages j of unfathomed mystery. Lives have boon lost i.; attempting to explore them : and a gate has been placed at tie- entrance. This opened to the magic of a niece of silver, nnd wc do scended a wet but ea-y slope into the grand Lall oi tho cavern. ? Imagine a cathedral built by gi n 's and fallen to ruins, with ? , all its labored caning and ornaments broke:: polished by time. Some immense pillars supported the arched dome; farther on. some seemed broken, the base still resting on the J floor, and the capital adhering to the lofty r of. 1? :;:.ed statue., were there, too, corroded by ' Tim-.-'., effacing finger,' it is true, but wonderfully in, keeping with the general fea? tures of the place. One of them really'bears a resemblance to a human bust on a pedestal. On the left, perhaps forty feet from the entrance, is a rude stone table. Beyond, the floor ' ascends, and the cave contracts into a winding corridor, yiith a pond of water on the left; and a wall of rock broken into f. sure* and recesses that extend far back on the righr. The , pillars are composed of petrifactions that ar? susceptible of a fine polish. I was charged by an esteemed fnend to send a -pe.-imei; home to him.

PRAIRIE SKETCHES. Titr. Loii M .i.v.?An mforuxnate trader once strayed,from iu? companions, ar.J was! ost for Eve cty?. suffering the keea ???t nan-i of starvation and .Ii*:r^-j. It was year- ago, ye. the ?t.irv ha* only been ro!-i in orid repetition amor;;: old tn dor*, and ha* never before, to our know ledge, fallen in the way of s. scribe. The man wandered /way upon a sultry raid-summar at'ter noon,oppressed to despei uibn with thirst.search of water, while the caravan was .irr-.riring slowly -il >:ig the .Irearv and h' ateii prairie. Making his way to a cluster of timber that appeared at no very tedious distance, he was fortunate enoxgh tt :in?i a ?maii cool -?prinrr gushing and rippling at tho bot? tom of :i deep rocky hsllow. The fresh water, the c?cl shade <>f thr? .;*e?p ro>-k and the trees a?ovo, together with the know? ledge that fhe irrigons were still moving along in sight. :n dac the poor fellow to viele, to his weariness ana sutler his ovo- t, close. When he awoke, the gray of evening was already deopening around the prairie, and rushing up from the hoiiow. Hi- eye wandered about in vain search of his companions. He was a raw adventurer, upon bis t:r*t travel, knowing nothing of how to direct his step- in tho wilderness, and trusting entirely to the- guidance and experience of those with w hom he traveled. Hasty, impulsive and rash as he was careless, and without possessing a single quality of cha? racter to assist him in such an emergency, confused terror now at one-; took possession of himt and starting, as be thought, in the direction where he had la-: ?-?en the wagons, he ran with headlong, speed,, shouting wildly at every step, in hopes of being heard and answered by his companions. Ti.e terrified mac. bereft of all thought by the fearful na? ture of his predicament/, could not even remember t? tire the rifle he !i>-!.i. but continued tearing his lungs with wild and desolate cries for assistance. W bile rushing blindly forward b this mannet, the night still deepening around him, the man met 'i vi.ilen: fail and wu- -tu..neu into insensibility tUr hours. We are giving now the substance of the poorfellowV-own re? lation. He came back to conssiousncss some titr.o during tin* meist, in the mielst of a pack of howling wolves, and found himself iy ::ig :>y the side of a buffalo's skeleton, w hich was n ? yet entirely stripped :>y tho prowling .logs bf th- desert. A situation m*ro appalling to heart and nerve may not bo imagined. The man <l mbted not but that he w as aroused prematurely from bis state of torpor bv the bungrv creatures assaulting his own body, for bis clothes were mauled an,! ten., and th i ?cratch ?f a claw was on his leg, though a tooth, it seems, bad not yet touched him. He had tripped upon skeleton ami struck his forehead on a born or some other :.'n J and -tony par:, as he discovered a huge lump upon his head, which also ached distressingly when he came to his senses. The poor follow in the heat of ills -error made out t-> scare away the wolves from himself snd escape from the snot, leav? ing the famished animals to return again, to the buffalo's bones and give them a.clearer polishing. Just escaping from one frightf?] danger perhaps took jonethin? from the keen hor? rors of hl-s desolate an<l wretched condition : but the unhap? py man's sensations wer,- harrowing and fearful in the ox treme. He still pressed on wars], with strength failing at every step, calling in h irsh and broken ?hri.ks to his friends, an 1 changing "tii- cou.se ugain and again, in utt'-r an<I miser? able uncertainty of which way te turn. Daylight came, die sun rose, noon approached and passed, and the lost man was alone in the wide desert, famished and faint, and without n solitary hope of regaining his companions or finding the track they were pursuing I That nigh: the unhappy w retch sank exhausted upon the jrtiss and slept, to aw aken in u state of fear and danger more appalling even than the night before. A compact and innu? merable band of buffalo came moving slowly across the re ? on of prairie on which he lay, and he startc-l from sleep in imminent pen! of being trodden to death by the huge mon? archy of the plain. As these dense masses of bufTa,o move, thev '?;,?:: sounds that rise on the air like a sea surge ; and, as tho vast black herd came toward him in the deep mid night, the posr trader declared that a rolling ocean seemed about to overwhelm him'. Utterly paralizcd within* danger, the unfortunate man could but start to his feel and stand con? found) ?!. fearixg either to tiro or use other means to alarm the buffalo, lest bv exciting their terror he should but increase bis own peril. From this.critical position, he likewise escaped tw.-huit. for the animals separated, as is their custom when a strange -cent is detected, and passed on in tws divisions, keeping some two hundred yards clear of the mysterious in frud rr in the mi 'dle.

I. ^O. 21. iD.iGhmqton Correcpon?cncc ?Vawti?ct?x, M?y 1,1841. I: is understood here that Judge Broason of the Supreme i Courr ct' your State has granted a writ of hab-as corpus in favor of McLeod. and tiiut persona-e is now probably on his way from Lockpor: to Now-York. It is further stated that on hi* arrival in New-York a motion will be made by his counsel, Mr. Gardner, for the discharge of McLeod and that it will probably be granted by the court, and this nota bl* person be discharged, and gives safe conduct to St. Johns. These facts come from an authentic source : and is this has been the s-jbject of conversation here for a few days in private circles, 1 am somewhat surprised at having seen no reference tj them in the puUlic journals. The ground upon which McLeod's counsel will ask tor ins dis? charge is, that the question is now ot an iuternatwiui char? acter purely, since the British Government has distinctly re? cognised the attack on the Caroline. General Scott has made a very full report to the Presi? dent and Secretary of State of all the circumstances con? nected with the Caroline affair. If McLeod -hould be dis? charged the ca.se will be relieved of a very productive source of difficulty and exasperation; but yet it will have a very grave aspecr, and we can only hops that two govern ments, whose sole interest and true glory i: is to cultivate peace and harmony, will take care to accommodate the dif iculty in an honorable and amicable manner. Thus far ?here has been no communication between Mr. Fox and Mr. Webster ot; the subject tint has not been perfectly re? spectful, and friendly i:t its pptrit and tendency. What a creature is this Alexander McLeod to have thrown into a flame the bellicose spirits on both sices! Undoubtedly he hsJ no more to do with the attack on the vessel in question than you had. His boast was a double entendre, meaning only to boast of his brutal triumph over a young woman named Curohne, whom he had seduced'? b it giving th- impression that he had had boarded the Car? oline. The British officers in Canada express freely the utmost scorn and d..-gust for this profligate character, while they protest against his seizure and imprisonment, aud would not cry out much if he were brough' to severe pun? ishment on their own side of the lines. An extraordinary document made its appearance a few days ago in the (rieb-, signed " Levi Woodbttry," and pur? porting to be a report from the late Secretary of the Treasury to President Van Buren, showing the state of the finances at the close of the late administration. If this thins was Una fide made to the President, why was it not communicated to Congress before the close of the ses? sion?even on the last day?for their information, and that ' of the public 1 Bui nobody believes it was presented to Mr Van lstren It is a pitiful attempt to blind the people to the bare condition in which Mr. Van Buren left the finances. The document has been a topic of conversation in all cir? cles: and everywhere it has been treated with unmit? igated ridicule. As a composition it is about the most cloudy and clumsy that ever came even from Mr. Wood? bttry. As a statement ot finances there is nothing in it, from beginning to end, stated with any degree of exact ness and precisian. In my BfXt I will present to your re-*?r era some facts as to the true.state of the finances, which will show very differently from what Mr. Woodbury would have the public believe. Mr. Swing has opened " new books," and the country needs not the assistance of the Ex-Secre? tary to illumine now his success in keeping dark and pro? ducing confusion worse confounded for eight years past. When Mr. Woodbury finished his speech in defence of Blair ami Rives, at th" extra session, Mr. Buchanan, of Pennsylvania, said, very keenly, " Well, I am ouite disap? pointed in Woodbury. Really he is quite intelligible. I confess he never made a report I could understand ! " When John Callomn was in opposition to Van Buren, he used to denounce, in his ti'-rce way, the " unpenetrable darkness of the Treasury Reports" of Mr. Woodbury:? and this is tie' gentleman, who, now alter the lapse of two months, send ? from the hills of New Hampshire, a long, prosy pointless, contumelious string of conjectures, and " proba? bilities," and computations to make people believe that the Treasury was [eft in a most prosperous condition ; and the Globe proclaims, on the strength of it, that ' Mr. Woodbu? ry could carry th- Government triumphantly through the year withoul any additional provision" ! Oh! oh ! Mr. Granger removed from the Post Office Department yesterday, two clerks, who hud been placed there on parti? san ;:? tmds, and had retained their places by partisan ser rice*. R< movals, you may expect, will be made from time to time ia the offices here, as the evidence of incompeieiicy, or infidelity of trust, or if malversation is presented strong enough lor conviction. The reform wUJ certainnly be ex? tended to th- partwan agents ; though it may be more slow? ly tiian the Whigs desire. 1 perceive thut a morning paper in'New York contains an. attack on the Secretary of War, in tha form of a b-tter from Washington, because he has not removed certain officers in bis Department This blow comes, if I mistake not, from, a person who is particularly anxious to be Commie-ioner of Indian Affairs! Thire are many applicants for this impor? tant .mi lucrative placej and when some of the many xnepor tunate tolicilom cUar out from Washington, Mr. Bell ttut p-riupt make the appointment.? Verb Sap From th* Sandwich Uixsos.?Tho New-Havcn Regis? ter has received from an officer of the Kxpionng Expedition several numbers of the Polvnesian, a paper printed at Oahu? in the Sandwich Islands. X paper of the .late of June, 1340? contains an interesting account of toe ,?s* of a small vessel, which was on a nip to mi whind about a hundred miles dis? tant. Most of those on board were native,, several of whom saved their lives by swimming twenty or thirty miles. The following is an extract of a loiter to the editor, giving an ao coaat of the calan.it).

His wife was saved, and they both swam twenty-fivemQea together before he died. What is wonderful beyond description is, that his wife carried him when he coul : no longer swim himself, and carried him till' a:":er he was dead. When -he found he could go no farther; she bade him hold to the hair of her head, and so she dragged! him : but soon hi.- band slipped, and she tried in vain to rouse. him. Sire to.d him he mu-i pray; he commenced, but could ohl'v utter a sentence or two.
