03* Our amiable friend Joan M'Keon, we bear,
is 'threatening- to con-est the election of Hamilton
Fish to Congress. We trust he will think better
of it. After having been beaten successively in two
separate Districts in one Election?beaten by bis
own party, too?it will look poor now to ask Con?
gress to give bim a seat. John is not reduced to
suob extremities, if be did but know it. He can
get elected by the People if be will keep on trying
two Districts a year for three or four years longer.
Patience, man.' do n"t take those little rebuffs so
much at heart and lose your temper. But if yon
go in for contesting, just contest Leonard's seat
'while you are about it, and so have two strings to
your bow. You saw the advantage of that in your
late canvass.
?A correspondent writes to know if the last
Legislature cut off students, paupers, &.c. from
the Right of Suffrage. Certainly not.?the clause
provides that " no one shall gain or lose a resi?

\HW We commend to careful peiunal the commu
u.cation on our last page. It is written by on?
who never talks oi what he does nor understand,
and whoso productions, few as they are in num?
ber, carry with them an influence which dnw not
die with the year or the age that gave it birth.
The field of discussion which it opens is foreign u.
the legitimate aims of our paper; but as it is sim
ply in reply to what we have already publisher!,
tiad we the desire, we could not well deem it
proper, t? refuse insertion to the article. We an
?ure our readers will not wish us to have done so.
Hon. John Henderaon.
Throughout the past summer, the Loco-Foco
journals, from the Globe downward, have em
blazoned a circumstantial, point-blank accusation
that Hon. John Henderson, Whig IT. S. Sena?
tor from Mississippi, had procured the passage
through Congress at the last session of a bill giv?
ing himself and two confederates nearly $20,000
lor Indian depredations on lands owned by them
?*n the Gulf of Mexico! Now that this lie ha
served its purpose, the Editor of the Courier und
Enquirer has been able to draw together the facts
necessary for its entire refutation, which are as
follows:
1. In 1837 about 5,000 Creek Indians, emi
grating from Florida to Arkansas in charge of U
States officers, halted on a very beautiful tract o!
thinly timbered land on the Gulf, belonging to
Mesara. D. M. Hughes, C. Shipman and J. Hen
derson, and there remained two months, with the
consent of the U. S. officers?probably awaitin
the arrival of steamboats. They cut and slashed
the timber as usual to build huts, kept fires night
and day, &c., and doubtless did much damage to
the property. For this damage the Government
is justly responsible, as the Indians were virtually
its prisoners or wards, in the hands of its officers.
2. The claim being presented to Congress, it
was referred to the Committee of Claims of tin
House, whereof Hon. Edmund Burke, a Ne.v.
Hampshire Loco-Foco of the sharpest grit, i>
Chairman; and Mr. Burke himself investigated
the claim, pronounced it just, drew up the report
inits favor, and introduced the bill.
. 3. The bill does not propose to pay $19,000
$20,000, or any other sum. There were witnesses
before tho Committee who swore that this Land
was extremely valuablo and eligibly located foi
Country Sei.s, to the beauty of which tbe timbei
was essential, and that it had been damage/'
$15.000 or more by the Indiens' destruction o?
timber; but the Committee expressly reporter5
ngainst anv such fancy valuation, and the bil'
passed merely directs the Secretary of the Trea?
sury to make a thorough investigation and pay th'
claimants merely " the intrinsic value" of th?
trees at the place whence and time when taken?
not a cent more. Is there an honest man in the
Union who can object to this ?
?Such is the history of a transaction out o(
which tho most unscrupulous portion of the Loco
F?co prose, such as tbe Globe, Troy Budget anr
Mohawk Courier, have contrived to make mucl'
capital during the summer. They will never
trouble themselves to give the correction, and thu
ibVir readers will continue in the undoubting be?
lief that a Whig Congress ha* aided one of its
Members to draw $20,000 unjustly from the Trea?
sury, when in fact the. whole payment will probablv
;?r less than $1,000, and this on Loco-Foeo in?
vestigation and recommendation, founded on ihr
??leerest evidences of its iu-,tiee.
Tamiuauy Hall aad Carroll Hall.
Last fall, (1S41.) it will be recollected, a per.
tiou of the Loeo-foeo* friendly to the Catholic
Schools, met ai Tammany Hall and nominated
vlessrs. Tight Davy and Timothy Daly on the
Tammany Assembly Ticket, in place of Messrs
(ilatier and Sanford. The consequence was the
defeat of the two latter on the Regular Ticket.
This year Glazier and Sanford are again placed oh
the ticket at Tammany Hall, and, by way of com?
promise, Mr. Tighe Davy was also nominated.
The following statement of the votes in each Ward
for Glazier and Davy will show that while the
friends of Davy have been faithful to tho alliance
and have elected Ghuier and Sanford. more than
2,400 Loeo-Foco* have scratched the. name of Mr.
Davy from their ballots, and thus defeated him :

leading Davis about 2,000 votes in the State, but
lacking at least 3,000 of a choice?there being
some 6,000 scattering votes, mainly cast for ttco
Abolition tickets. The splits being strongest in
the Whig districts, the Loco-Focos have done best
for Senators, claiming 14 to 7 of those elected,
thus forming a bare quorum of a Senate and leav?
ing 19 vacancies. (This may be varied by the
complete returns ; but it now seems that the great
Whig County of Worcester has failed by 200 to
make a choice of Senators, while every County
that is in any sense Loco has chosen its full
ticket. The vacancies are to be filled by Conven?
tion of the two Houses, and so far the House stands
Whigs returned.97 Loco-Focos.87
No choice.43 Voted not to send..21
Tberc are some 20 to 30 unhef rd from which
will not materially affect the aggregate. Ic rests
with the Towns which have voted to make a
second trial for Representatives to determine
whether Massachi'setts shall be Whig or Loco
Foco for the coming year- They are nearly ail
Whig, and can secure a Whig House, a Whig
Senate, and ' Honest John Davis ' for Governor
if they will; but if they choose the rale of the
Clam-bake dsmagogue for one year, we must bow
in submission.
The Members of Congress reported as elected ate
John Quincy Adam?, Robert C. Winthrop,

tained or supposed to he no choice. The popular

In the Old Ninth District Hon. William Jack?
son, anti-Slavery Whig, is elected to the present
Congress, in place of Hon. Wm. S. Hastings, de?
ceased.
Never was there a contest which mote striking
ly developed the innate dishonesty of Loco-Foco
ism. The Boston Post, for instance, called on all
Tariff men to vote for Parmenter as a true and
faithful friend of the Tariff, and against J. Q.
Adams as an enemy of the Tariff! because he did
not see fit to ' wheel about' and give up the Land
Distribution. All over the State the Whigs were
assailed as not thorough in their advocacy of a
Protective Tariff, backed by the assertions of the
base apostate, Cushing. Yet, now that the imme?
diate end has heen attained, the gain of the Loco
Focos will be cited as a Free Trade triumph, and
the votes of the Working Men of Lynn, Lowell,
&.c. cited to nhow that they do not desire Protec?
tion !

To the Editor of The Tribune ?
The undersigned, a young man of studious
nabits. wishes to know Mr. Greelev's opinion con
?ertiine: the effect which the Graham system is
likely to have upon the constitutions of those who
ire naturally of a dyspeptic habit; and have
through a close application to their books con
firmed'what before was inherent, but which mipht
nave been eradicated, if they had paid proper at
tention to their regimen, and taken sufficient exer?
cise. Of this class is the subscriber, who, being
in a wretched state of health and having adopted
various means of regaining, without success, that
which makes life endurable, is almost persuaded
by the eutreaties of numerous friend? to adopt a
mode of life which seems every day to he gaining
now converts, among which your humble servant
hears you are one; and therefore requeue that
you will comply with his request as above stated.
K.
Reply fo the foregoing.
The Editor of The Tribune professes to know
something of Political Economy and History, a
littlo of Theology, less of Law, and least of all of
Medicine, on which he does not deem the Editor
of a Political journal properly railed to pronounce
judgement. The above inquiries may be mote
properly directed to some Medical publication.?
Generally, however, we have no difficulty in stating
that " sufficient exercise 13 with regularly temperate
habit?, earlv hours, and pure air at all times are
most essential to the preservation of Health, anil
>>f course necessary to its restoration when im?
paired. These constitute (in themain) the Gra?
ham System;?a preference of the most nutritious,
easily digestible and least stimulating food being
plainly implied in the foregoing. If our corres?
pondent has fallen into the vulgar error of suppos?
ing some narrow and fantastic restrictions of Diet
N^he Graham System,' we can only advise him to
*eVk in the proper quarter the needful information.
Mr- Graham's principal treatise may doubtless be
obtained at any of our great Libraries. [Ed.
Louis F. Tasistro has become Editor of
the Boston Nation, which is hereafter to be con?
ducts! independently of any daily paper.

City Taxe?.
To Ttkt Editor of the Tribune ?
Now that the elerrion has passed, and we have
not that exciting subject to engross our atten?
tion, it may be well if we turn our eyes to our in?
ternal affairs and see what is passing in our own
vicinity more immediately interesting to our citi?
zens. Taxes are at all times regarded with great
jealousy in our country, and in the present de?
pressed state of affairs excite a deep and absorb?
ing interest, more particularly as it is known that
the faxes in this city have been considerably in?
creased in amount the present year. It therefore
becomes a matter of serious enquiry why?when
properly of every kind has greatly depreciated in
value?have the taxes increased, and what is the
remedy proposed to lessen them in future ?
If it will not tax your columns too greatly, I pro?
pose to state the reasons why they are increased,
and at a future period to point out, as I think, a
certain plan for reducing them in future.
In the first place, we all know thnt. the Croron
v\ ater has been introduced into our City at a <rreat
expense, and that the credit of this City has been
used to the amount of twelve millions of dollars
in ttie issue of stock bearing an interest to accom?
plish that object. The interest which has hereto?
fore become due has been paid out of the proceeds
of the stock issued; but that cannot be done in
future, for the reason that the amount, of stock au?
thorised to be issued by the Legislature is about
exhausted, in the introduction of the water to the
Reservoir, and distributing it through the street*
of our city.
The amount of the interest per annum is about
$640,600. Many expedients have been suggested
by different members of the community to pay this
money, but.all based in some way or other on bor?
rowing. But our Board of Supervisors, with a
manliness that does them i.-jfinitc credit, deter?
mined to raise three-quarters of a year's interest,
say $480,000, by a tax of 20 cents on the 100 dol?
lars, believing that the citizens of New-York, not?
withstanding the hardness of the times, would
cheerfully pay their proportion of that amount,
rather than more money should be borrowed, or
the credit of their City bo dishonored. It is also
known that the Legislature, in their wisdom, at
their last session, ordered a Tax of 10 cents on the
100 dollars on all the real and personal property
in this State. This tax falls with peculiar hard,
ship on this City at the present time, for it hap?
pens that the amount of this tax alone reaches to
about $250,000, to be paid by the citizens of this
City; and is by many ef our citizens deemed op?
pressive and unnecessary, as the resources of the
State were abundantly ample for all purposes in
the economical administration of the affairs of our
State government. The above two items, as will
be seen, form an amount of 30 cents on the 100
dollars, which our citizens have never been before
called upon to pay. The City tax, or tax levied to
pay the current expenses of the City government,
is about $80,000 less than last year; and if the
measures of reform now in progress, are permitted
to be carried out another year, will show a reduc
lioa of about $200,000. I propose in another
communication, through the facilities kindly afford?
ed me at the proper department in this City, to
send you the entire amount of Taxes levied, and
tho amount proportioned to each Ward, viz : State,
Water and City Tax separate, so that all Tax
Payer8 mav know for what they are taxed and to
what purpose their money is to be applied.
A Tax-Pater.
The Lyceum Lecture.?'Preparation to see
the World' was the subject of last evening's Lec?
ture, delivered by Rev. Witliam Hague, of Bos?
ton. Ability and profound thought would have
been wasted upon so superficial a theme; it must
be deemed a merit, therefore that the Lecture dis?
played a decided economy of both. The pro?
digious rate at which people travel in this ' nine?
teenth century' was duly celebrated, and the ne?
cessity was urged of making some special prepa?
ration to see whatever is noteworthy in the world
as we travel through its various parts. Men, be?
fore they travel, the lecturer thought, should cul?
tivate, rirst. their sensibility to the beauties of Na?
ture; then acquire a knowledge of the Past, which
shall open the mind to the power of historical as?
sociation*: and lastly, cherish and develope the
faculty of appreciating the poetic and beautiful
wherever they are found. This advice is doubt?
less good ; the man who has not embraced all
these points in his personal culture is surely not
fitted to trarei with any pleasure, nor is he, we beg
leave to submit, one whit better qualified to stay at
home. The lecturer embodiedin his discourse some
fairly written fancy llight*. many beautiful ques?
tions, both pi ose and verse, not spoiled by the re?
citation, anecdotes from his own experience and
reading, and several personal references, which
showed that the '.ecture was written for a Boston
audience. It was listened to by a moderate au?
dience with moderate pleasure.
CP The Mechanics' Institute of this city
have arranged for a Course of twenty-two Lec?
tures this winter, to be given at their large room,
12 Chambers-street, near the Post Office, on each
successive Friday evening. No two Lectures are
given by the same person, and all, or nearly all,
the Lecturers ars New-Yorkers. The Introduc?
tory wiii be given on Friday evening by John B
Scolf.s, Esq. Subject?' The Motives and Ends
of Intellectual Effort.' Tickets for the Course.

From Mexico.?The schooner Hero, from Ha
\rtr.a, brings later news from Mexico, though no?
thing important from Havana. The Mexican pa?
pers announce with great pomp that the foot of
Santa Ana, lost in the battle of December 5, 1333.
was deposited with great ceremony beneath a mon?
ument in a cemetery. The expedition against Yu?

The official despatch of Gen. Wall, announcing
the defeat of three hundred Texan? near San An?
tonio, is published in the papers. It states that
the Texans left one hundred and twenty dead on
the field, and that fifteen prisoners were taken, four
of them grievously wounded. The capture of San
Antonio is likewise announced in magniloquent
strains.
Octbage.?One George W. Lore was recently
convicted in Barbour Co., Ala., of having commit?
ted murder. He was sentenced to be hung, but
the Supreme Court granted a new trial and he
was admitted to bail. When the time for trial
came he was missing Some time afterwards he
was found loitering about the vicinity of Glennviile
and was apprehended. The citizens to the num?
ber of one hundred and sixty assembled to consult
what should be done with him. After he had
stated his case to the multitude, licet voted to de?
liver him up to the officers of justice?twenty-two
were indiffereHt and one hundred and thirty-six
voted to hang him on the spot. He was accord?
ingly hung. The Columbus (Ga.; Enquirer thinks
tha citizen* " acted precipitately and wholly out of
character in this business !" We think not.
The Losr; Island Murder.?On Tuesday
night, officer John Lyon, and ex-officer B. F. Par?
ker arrested a German named Joseph Beam, on
suspicion of his being the person who committed
the murder on Long Island on Sunday last. Mr.
Jess* Cod.lington, of Hnntington, L. I. having vis?
ited Beam in prison, and having seen the German
in theservice of Mr. Smith, made affidavit that he
believed him tobe the identical man, and he was,
therefore, committed to prisow for examinatioa as
the supposed murderer of Mr. and Mrs. Smith.
Arrest on Attachment.?The Deputy Sheriff
of Ontario County, arrived here yesterday from
Geneva, having in custody Mr. James H. Buckel,
late Deputy Keeper of Blackwell's Island, whom
he arrested on attachment from the County Court,
as a witness for the people in the trial of Justice
Parker on impeachment. A writ of habeas cor?
pus was sued out by W. J. Haskett, Esq. before
the Recorder, and Mr. Buckel was ndmitted to
bail in $100 to appear and testify at the next meet?
ing of the Court.
Murder in Wiskossan.?The Wiakonsan
Whig states that on the 28-.h of 0^tober several
soldiers at Prairie du Chien, in a drunken spree,
assailed several Fienchmen in a grocery, firing
upon the house and beating in the windows with
stones and clubs. A peaceable man named Jo?
seph Magnient went out to usk them to desist,
when they shot him dead. Five of them have
been arrested and committed to jail.
Sl'ddkn Death.?Mr. John Redfield, of the
firm of John Hunt ifc Co. Hat Manufacturers. 131

A Shaker Mytery.
New Lebanon, N. Y., Nov. 14. 1842.
To Iks Editor of du Tribun*
Inclosed I send you a copy of an inscription on
a slab of marble lately discovered on the mountain
east of the Shaker village. You will most proba?
bly recollect a manifesto issued by the Trustees
j last spring, saying that their church would not be
opened for the admission of strangers this season.
I am informed that they go up thither to wo ship;
I and they are now guarding it by a high fence, to
i prevent it from being polluted by unclean hands.
! Sappose yon suggest tc Miller, as he is on your
border, that here is a fine chance for him and his
followers. The Shakers admit that ?rreat events
arts about to takp place, but keep to themselves
' what they are.
Indian Troubles.?The N.O. Bulletin notices
a disturbance among the Choctaw Indians upon
the other side of the Lake near the citv, which it
i< feared may cause serious diSiculty. It seems
that at a powow some drunken Indians attacked a
son of Ashtaba?the head of a family living apart
from the rest. Ashtaba killed one of the Indians,
and the rest ware determined to take revenge. The
Bulletin fears the broil may involve both whites
and Indians.

Michigan and Erie Ca sal.?-We noticed
some time ago the project in Indiana to cut a ca?
nal from the Upper Wabash at Fort Wayne to the
St. Joseph at Elkhart. Such a canal, in connec?
tion with the Erie and Wabash Canal, would open
a water communication between Lakes Erie and
Michigan. We find that the proposition is still
entertained. Books have been opened at various
places for the subscription of stock, and a consid?
erable amount has been subscribed. Subscrip?
tions are received in money, lands, labor, material*
or service. The expenses, at the present reduced
prices, is estimated at $700,000.
Poisoned.?The family of Mr. Garner More
land, of Coahoma County, Miss., leaving near the
I Yazco Pass on the Mississippi River, was powoned
j a few days since. Mrs. Moreland and two of their
children, ono a boy abont 14 years of age, died;
j and the other members of the family were all very
sick. The family are supposed to have been poi
I soned by eating peaches which had been dried on
painted plank ; the acid of the peaches combin?
ing with the alkine and other properties of the
j white lead, probably producing a poison like su
J gar of lead. But whatever the reason, we men
J tion it us a caution to others to avoid the cause.

mild and pleasant weather, which we hop* is the prchtd? to
a moderate winter, which, tor the sakeot the paor who ire
out of employment, is very desirable.
During the last fortnight, oar three Medical Ccfiegej hi* ?
bad their opening of the Winter Session. First, we have
the old University of Maryland, which is rivaled by the
Washington University; and the Medical Deparuntuuoi
both are now in operation. Their totroductory Le.; .
have been well attended, bat papils are scarce, for I itara
that, with the College ot Dental Sorgeons, which ij also fa
operation, the whole three will not together master qotv
than 100 boca tide students. The reasons of this failiog off
of Medical students in this city I may make the subject cf
another letter.
The Mar} land Stale Coloniiatien Society has held an in
teresiing meeting lately, at which Dr. McSiH, one of the
colonists from Cape Palmas, gave a most encouraging ac
count ot the state of affairs in Africa. He is a yoanjr n.iz
of Sue talents, an agreeable speaker, has been w*U. r-daca
ted. and is a. highly useful man m the Colony, wbither be
will soon return. Mr. Latrobe made a forcible appeal for
funds, which was liberally responded to on the spot
Tbe Maryland Sute Bible Society held a meetine lau
night, which was addressed by Rev. Mr. Johns of this cay
and .Rev. Mr. Jones of New-York, in a truly rlequeat
manner.
The Rev. Mr. Madit is here, and nurbtly auractiog ia>
mens? crowds to his sermon*, lectures kc, and there seenti
to be an increasing disposition to patroniie Lectures of ail
kinds, of which there is here a full supply on aUnost every
subject.
A number of slaves escaped from here a few days since,
and had nenrlv reached the Pennsylvania line.on their way
to Canada ; but as they were betrayed by one of their owa
color to whom they confided their secret, they have ail
been brought back in irons, and now, instead ot a comfort?
able home and easy life here, they are in the possession of
one of the dealers here, and w II be sold to the extreme
S*uth. 1 am told that this is a frequent result; so that these
poor people are deeply injured by ta*se who are invel^hr./
them to run away by promises ot' liberty and plenty La the
North. If di?y succeed in getting out of the State, they
are doomed to disappoiutraent by the false lures held oat
to them ; ami the change ot climate, added to llicir priva?
tions in the North, soon end their days; wbiie, if they fail
to make good their escape, they are lodeed in jail here, and
shipped otF at the fir?t opportunity for New-Orieaos and a
market.
Our election here being over, there b but little political
ferment, except that the Loco Foco tornado wbich has
swept over New-York and Ohio is thought to augur badly
for the prospects of Henry Clay and the Country. Snca
Whigs as John Tyler ami John C. Spencer are the curse
and ruin of any party; and we have one prm Were (the
Baltimore Patriot) which has the courage to speak out in
respect both tu the treason and the traitor*. Amkricits.

Parris. an old lady, was entered on Saturday night,
