Su?--N?ture of Uw Solar Bye l?M.?lUltftoa UMl PWIo?opliy ????In* together. For several days pant, an optician, we presume, has been exhibiting the spots on the sun, to the won dering loafers around the Park, at sixpence a sight, iinil making a good business of it during the present pressure in mercantile affairs. It appears, that for some time, the face of the sun lias be' ii covered with a number of dark spots, which, in astronomical language, are called "openings," "shallows," "ridges," and "corrugations." In the early arjes of the world, before the fanciful imagi nations of men, elevated intellectual over physical creation, the great luminary of day was considered the father of the world? the divinity himself? the place of happiness hereafter, and the great sources of life, being and ex'steuce. Such worship was proba bly ihe first religion oh record. This feature in early civilization, is equally apparent in the remotest ages of every race and of every continent. Subsequent discoveries, brought about by the im provements of science and art, would really appear to be joining the past with the present ? and to be carry ing the mind back to the ideas of remote antiquity. The sun is the centre of our system. Around him revolve all the planetary and comctary bodies, at certain distances, and in separate orbits. In form, the sun is a spheroid, and has a motion of its own round its centre. Many observations have been made to ! to ascertain the exact time of this revolution, but ' hitherto it has battled all astronomers. The highest i calculation, is i7 days 12 hours and 'JO minutes ? the lowest, 23 days 10 hours ? probably truth lies between the extremes. Besides the motion of the sun on its own axis, and the several motions of the planets and comets in their separate orbits, of which the sua is the centre, there is a general motion of the whole solar system, sun, planets, comets, sattelites, and all their appurtenance*, through the boundless regions of space, at an incon ceivable velocity, in a direction towards that con st. Ilation in the heavens called Hercules. The rapidity of this general motion of the solar system, onward into the regions ofetemity.is utterly inconceivable. We have calculations of the rapidity of the planets round the sun? and the speed of a ray of light from the sun to the earth? but the motion of the system is beyond I any figures or fluxions. The nearest approximation to this speed is the variation or increase of the longi tude of the fixed stars to the earth, which is fnind to be equal to 1? 25', in every hundred years? but when the sun and all the planets may land at the end of lime, no one can tell. Astronomers hare endeavored to ascertain the Na ture of the sun and planets? their size? bodies? and whether they are fitted up for the habitation of living beings. From analogy, and from the discoveries already made of the surface of the moon, it is generally be lie vd that every planet is peopled with animated I beings. For a long time, however, it was supposed 1 that the sun was simply the source of heat and light ? \ that it was a ball of original fire? and only useful as i thj vivificr of the system of w hich it was t he centre. Astronomers of late begin to hare a different opinion of its character. By nairowly watch ng the spots on its surface ? noticing their changes? their recurrence and disappearance, it is now marly ascertained that tho sun ia a body of the same general chiractvras thecal tli, though probably of a much superior quality ? that it is surrounded with a luminous atmosphere, filled with empyml and phssphoric clouds, and that there is a groat vacancy between the atmosphere tnd the inner body of the sun. The light and hvat received 1) y us on earth from the sun, are produced on the out side of this atmosphere ? on its upper strata, on some thing like the Rime principle on which the Aurora f!o realis produces its phenoincim. Fire or heat is not alone produced by the sun. ? Tins original substance p rvades all matter. -Over the surface of the earth, the sun indeed produces the light and heat that we are receiving for animal and vegetable life, but by the recent discoveries of geolo gy we know that a more intense heat exists at the centre of the earth than that produced by the sun an its outside or crust. Heat, therefore, is an element of matter, and is no more monopolised by the sun than by the earth. But the most remarkable phenomena connected with the sun, arc the inferences drawn from the na ture, number and charactc of its spots. These spats are classified by philosophers on the system we have already described. They indicate the remarkable fact that the sun is a habitable world, surrounded by a lu minous atmosphere, variegated with beautiful clouds, with openings, here and there, through which (he in habitants, both male and female, can look down upon the worlds attached to its system, and smile or frown upon our doings below. It is ulso ascertained that according to mathematical calculation, a man of this earth, would weigh two tons, thereby indicating that if the beings living on the surface of the sun arc of the same size as we are, it is highly probable, their hodxs are composed of the same light and airy sub stances, spoki n of by St. Paul in one of Ins epistles, which man will put on after the resurrection. Taking all these singular fnets together, is it not probable that the heaven and happy hereafter, which we so ardently seek in this world, is situated in that very him nary of flay which anciently was the deity and th- hop of nation-*, and wlrch still rises and sets up on us 1i r? below. In the Acts of the Apostles it is staled, that wlun the Saviour of tho world, on a beau tiful Sabbath morning, had pronounced his parting benediction over his dumpies, men and women, he was taken up to heaven ? "And when he bail spoken these things, while they beheld him, he was taken up ; and a cloud received him out of their sight.'1 The direction, therefore, which the Saviour look in his ascension, was the highway to the great luminary of day ? was the heavenly road to some of those bright openings, as nstrono iii' rs call tin m, which appear on the apparent sur face of tho sun. The mysterious destiny, crucifix ion, death, and resurrection, which the Saviour under went on earth, may have been only a refining process to [inp ire his earthly body, in which he clothcd him self as with a robe of l>euuty, for a residence in the heaven ? in those mansions of his Father's hixise in the sun. He be aine man and was subject to nil li s in firmities, in order lo show us the way to heaven. Theae idea* are curious and remarkable. It would nally appear that the discoveries of astronomy are carrying us back to the simplicity of early Christiani ty. before it was corrupted by the vulgar sophisms of On k and Roman literature. The time may yet conn when the wonderful truths of modern philoso phy and the sacred mysternsof aacient revelation may illustrate and support each other ? may b? united in un- han^.nble lore and affection, stronger and hap pier than the bridal lnn<ls. Jedediah Burchard is on ly a blockhead, and the truth is not in him. We shall at oar Insure follow up this subject, and endea vor to show from tke discoveries of astronomy, from the admitted principles of science and an original translation of the Bild? now making in Brooklyn, what the occupations and th# way of life may he of good men made perft ct, after they follow the track of the Saviour, and have asvended into heaven as he did before them. It is very evident th?t the Jews had aa imperfect notien of all science, and that the peculiar religion of the Saviour was only a return to those great truths, based on astronomy, of which a few faint glimpses come to iih through the traditions of all nations, the Egyptians, Indians, Chinas*, Persians, and particularly from the Bramins of Hindostan. luiportaut from the South. By the express mail we have highly important ac counts from Mew Orleans to the 12th inst. The great revolution in commerce leaps onwurd. The want of confidence begins to extend to the banks in New Or leans. The great southern trade in cotton is com pletely deranged. The last news from Europe has SHvpendid ull operations. In Mississippi society is on the verge of disorganization. In a short time the people of the 6ouih will have nothing else to do but to send an army to Washington to depose Martin Van Buren. [Private Coireiixmdenca.] New Orleans, April 11 ? 10, A.M. Dear Sir, ? We have had arrivals from Havana to the 29th March, and from Metainoras to the 18th. No news of importance. There were 4000 men at Metainoras in a state of insubordination. They were not paid, and would not march against the Tuxians. Great apprehensions were felt for the safety of the town against an attack of the hostile Indians, who numbered 8000 strong. Coffee and sugar have declined in Havana about a 1 cent. Our derangements are beginning to affect the j Havanerians. The Mechanics and Traders Bank had a run upon | it yesterday, which they promptly met. Great want of confidence is beginning to bo felt among the banks themselves. If they do not trust one another, we I shall shortly have ugly work. A report is in town that the Bank of England has suspended specie pay ments. If there be any truth in it, we are do>:e for here. Many of the best houses that have gone on hitherto untouched by the storm, have determined to suffer all acceptanccs to be protested which they have not been put in funds to meet. The Governor of Mississippi recommends the issuing of post notes. The truth is, we shall have to undergo the revolu tion in all its bitterness, and when every bank in the Union stops redeeming its notes, and the distress is intolerable, we shall have to get a United States Bank with a capit.il of one hundred millions? located where Mr. Van Buren pleases. We have a pleasant prospect before us. In haste. New Orleans, April 10. ? The house of Buckncr. Stanton & Co., dealers in cotton and Western pro duce, some time sine ? got a loon of half a million from the banks, supposing it would carry thorn through. On Saturday alter forcing a great quantity of cotton into market to no affect, they went by the board. What deductions will you mako when you hear that the very best cottons will not command, for cash, more than 10 cents ! These very cottons have had advanced on them fully 14 cents. All kinds of pro duce are falling. The transactions of Friday and Saturday arc not worth recording. Freights are up, us shipments of cotton are the methods how adopted to remit to Liverpool ? Correspondence of Wash.. I Reformer. New Orleans, April 1 1.? We are sorry to perceive I m this period of general excitement and di^tiust, that a want of confidence is beginning to prevail among soineol the banks, and t hat measures have been re i sorted to which arc calculated in the end to ruin all i the banks. Reports have been started touching the solvency of iwo or three respectable hanks in the oity , and countenance has been given to these reports, which we understand are perfectly unfounded by ' the refusal of the other hanks, to r. eeivc the paper of I tlie suspended institutions. ?Coin. Bulletin. Confidcnoe does not revive in the least. The fail ure of the Express Mail is now of no great conse quence to us. It can but bring us bad news, and at tempts on the part of monied men and monied insti tutions to profit by the present derangement in trade. The issuing of bonds or post notes in thu city has been talked of, but whether it will be effected is doubtful. Money is as scarce as ever. The practice is obtaining of suffering to ke protested all acceptan ces which the acceptors have not been placed in funds to meet. This will relieve in some measure the onus upon our community, transfer it to other parts of the Union, to be borne by those who have assisted in overtrading. But the scheme is not in aceordance with the great rules of commerce. It may work greater evils than it is intended to remedy. Meantime produce is falling. Flour it will be seen, has receded one dollar. Cotton is a mors drug. We hear of a small sale of middling quality as low as 6| cents. Our business season may be considered as having received a check that u ca.inot recover from. What remains to be done will only be the dragging out of heavy transactions required by the necessities of the times. Our levee does not present the anina ted sight it formerly did. ? True American. According to the Grand Gulf Advertiser, the Gov ernor of Mississippi intends tomggest to the Legisla ture of that State, the pr pnety ot consultihg with the different 1'residents of the banks, and request them to issue l'ost Notes "redeemablM at ninety days or thir teen months, as may be lh?uuht most advisable; which measure, he thinks will afibrd temporary relief and save the Slate from actual nun. Some arc in fa vor of ;he passage of a replevin law, but against this msasur'* serious objections are urged, as calculated to interfere with private contracts and also impair the credit of the Sta'e abroad. The plan proposed by the Governor is, perhaps tinder all the circumstances, the bast objectionable ? both are nevertheless bad? but the situation of iheconutry calif loudlv for some relief. ! The*dutres<a is represented gr. it, and as the terms i of the courts draw near, it iucrraaes. " The surplus revenue will atlonl some relief so soon as the banks obtain possession of it." ? Hee. Latest From Mexm o. ? By the schr. WaterWitch arrived yesterday from Matamoras, we have reei ived our regular files of papers to the I7ih March. They are barren of any important intelligence.

Major Noah's lecture before the Meicantile Society waa rather a dull atfair. We listened a full half hour, and hoard nothing but a vary common place refucciamento of aaeedotets and incidents picked up at random from the general history of the Arabians, tacked together without order or philosophy. The good and amiable Major is sadly deficient in a a philosophic grasp of mind. The most trifling and ridiculous incidents of sntiquity appear to seize upon his mind, without order, regularity or force. He stated that Spain paid tribute to king Solomon, an idea the most preposterous of any thatcver a philosopher could utter. The ancient Jews in the age of Solomon, did not know the existence of such a country as Spain. ? They were essentially an agricultural and pastoral people ? half thieves ? half religious impostors, who possessed moral or physical courage only for a couple of centuries. The ancient Jews received the whole of their learning and civilization from the Egyptians, and not till the time of Ezeki?.I,did their prophets know correctly the geography of the upper Mediterranean. Major Noah is no philosopher. He has yet to read the history of the Arabians with a more learned spirit, before he discourses again on the subject. One third part of the true poetic mind in Europe of the pre sent day, originated in Arabian literature and Arabian civilization. This intellectual movement, coupled with the influence of Christianity, produced the chi valry, love, devotion, and clcgancc of the middle ages. The truth is, that all Europe, and America too, barely escaped being made Mohammedans, and hon oring the Koran instead of the Bible. It will be reeolleoted, however, that there is agreat difference between Arabian and Turkish Mohammed ism. The former was scientific, poetic, elegant, grace ful, and cliivalric? the latter sombre, stern, brave, sa gacious, tyrannical, ignorant, and barbarous. The ancient Arabians were the first disciples of Moham ired ; but they possessed and elevated the civilization of the world during their day and lineage. The Turks were to them, what the Goths and Vandals were to Roman civilization? they destroyed their power, adopted their religion, and buried their civili zation in utter barbarism. Wc could writ 4 a book on the subject ? but we have only room for a paragraph. Mr. Noah's object seems to bij to bring the antiquity and elory of his ancestors into repute. 'Tis all very well ? but the ancient He brews were at best but a tribe of acmi-lmrbarianr ? a little more civilised than their descendants, as the Ma jor believes them to be, the Seminoles? but not much. Either, however, would have been capable of beating all our generals, as was shown in the last campaign in Florida. The bakers have not yet taken our hint. IJread iaa-< high as ever? though flour is 25 per cent, lower. When will they have worked oil' their old stock of flour? Chemical Bank ? Specis.? One of the bc*t banks in the city i.? the little Chemical. This solidity ? this solvency arists from two causes. The first i? this, John Mason, Esq., one of our old and respectable ci tizens, who luver did business on the modern plan of credit, is president ? the other reason is, we make all o?r deposits in the Chemical, the quantity of specie gold and silver? which we hand over, is a little com fortable item in the present crisis. It was the day before yesterday that I sent nearly S200 in silver to the Chemical. Such being the case, there is. therefore, every safety and security in the Chemical notes. We mean to stand by the Chemical through nil weathers.

Would not the gallant editor be content with Van's whiskers ? If like DiiH Crren, Van were to say to the Courier ? "come act take my head" would the latter accept the proposition, if we guarantee that Dud's mahogany stoek is not in Washington. All this talk about the specie circular is utter folly. If it were repealed. tomorrow, its effects would not be felt to the nmountof a thousand dollars. ftYThe Era takes great credit to itself for having originated and driven out of circulation all the un currcnt money.

Verdict accordingly. Meeltaulcs K migrating West. A new impulse seems to be given to emigration in to the new states and territories this season, from the commercial distress which pervades the whole Atlan tic and the large commercial cities of the south, with whom we are all closely connected by the interchange of commodities. Mb. Editob, ? I Imve travelled this continent from the far east to the far west, from north to south, and the plain ideas which I now submit to your readers, are the result of the common observations on a tour which I made into the north western states the last season. So much has been said and written of that part of our rising republic, that I placed myself on th* ek - fenaivc, and determined te believe that the advantages of emigration must have been overrated by the advo cutes of the modern system of personal toc*nu>Hon. But as I entered the heart of Indiana, Illinois and Wisconsin, I was then compelled to dm# the com parison between the natural advantages of the grain "rowing slates at the east, and the beautiful prairie lands of these western valleys. And 1 confess it is my firm belief, that of a thousand travellers who shall v sit these states with as strong prejudices as I commenced my lour, not one will re turn without becoming a complete enthusiast in his admiration ef the beuuties and vast resources of lh? wot. The common received opinion, even among well informed persons, is, that an emigrant leaves a pic ture of culture, the growth of several generations, fir a home 111 tin; wilderness. ^ So far from this being th? fact, it is directly the re verse. The state of Michigan, and some parts of In diana which I visited, were heavily wooded; but r;* nois and Wisconsin, particularly the former,) are prairie countries, and the average of the whole state is much more of an open country than that oo the Connecticut River from its mouth to Nortlii There the inhabitants build t heir houses is thai edge ol a grove, and their larina open on one of thMt un dulating prairies which often stretch for .fee ot-fcwr miles before him, and require nothing b 4 the ploogti to subdue to cultivation. Now what a contrast is this, 10 r country where the first generation must be buried in a wilderness* for it takes 30 or 40 years, with the strongest tide of emigration, to clear a country like western New York. Independent of the richness of the soil, this fact alone explains the reason why every thing ad vances with such a rapid step 111 Illinois ? why the who'c east arccr^wJinginto the west ? the merchants building warehouses at Chicago, and the towns on the rivers? and the farmers laying out plantations on the p'airits. It is clearly demonstrated that a farmet can make in such a country as I have described u greater ad vance in cultivation in three years, with the same la bor, than lie can in twenty-fiv? years 111 a country where a forest must be lellcd before the soil can be used for farming. There is no exaggeration about the west ? there cannot be as to the natural advantages and health of the country, though there uro parts as there are here, where a man if he was fool enough to build his house in a swamp, or near the over flowing of a river, would stand a chance of having his family sick. That there are disadvantages to o ereotne cannot be denied, and the greatest of all is the uni versal lack of mechanics. There are some who go into tlie west, but they so soon advance to affluence in their circumstances that they are of no advantage to their neighbors. All the necessaries of lite are to be hail for money? but a mechanic to build your house or mend your wagon is net to be had in many places. I travelled with a gentleman who was then going three hundred and fifty miles to yet some blaeksmithing done. He was tiom one of the towns 011 Lake Michigan, and was on his way to Detroit. There is abundant water power and Coal, yet no mills of consequence. Lumber on Rock River in the vicinity of immense tracks of timber nnd water power was Bulling for 80 dollars a thousand. The question naturally arises why do not people go into those brancht s which promise so much profit. ? The secret may be explained thus? In ihe first place there are but few mechanics who have emigrated ? and lliose who have found their way ihcrc, have found the pursuit of their regular business loo slow a process for acquiring a fortune, and very few of them nave continued to follew their trade. Now, that (hey have generally made more money then- ?<.?n ho no doubt? nor can there bathe least question but what twenty thousand mechanics of the Ailanuc cities, would find employment in tho single state of Illinois, by which they would immediately acquire a property and heme, and rise to affluence as the country advan ces. In Chieaga, Alton, Rock Islaud and all the flour ishing towns on ihe rivers, the inhabitants are actu ally suffering for the want ef mechanics to build than: stores and houses. And this amidst all the materials necessary for building, and hi the fairest country I ever saw. I vis ited gentlemen of large fortunes living in the most wretched hovels in ihe country, who si-a tod that in Chicuga, masons and carpenters, could be hired for 3 60 per day occasionally ? but in the countrv, it was nearly impossible to get them aj all. I now ask why those now out of employ do not go? expense in said to be erilv about 20 dollars by the Lakes and Canals to Chicnga ? and from that place they can enter at once into thelilino'S Valley oron ihe Rolling Frames of the beautiful Rock and !? ox rivers; there is a wide field for the Industrious and a sure reward will follow iheir labors. This communication has nothing of exaggeration in it, it is the common facts which any betdy who ha* vuted the West < an attest the truth of. Your's, Pl/in Tbvth. Police. ?
