The Western Frontier and Upper Canodn.
Tlie letter published below is all that we have fur
ther from the western frontier; indeed, the interest |
having subsided in that quarter, we <lo not look for
details in the minute and especial manner we have
heretofore received them.
It will be remembered that, in the outset of the I p- I
per Canada revolution, Sir Francis Head published a
reward for the apprehension of sundry persons, com
mencing with the caitiff" Mackenzie, and comprising one
Lount ? for the latter of whom ?500 were offered. THs
man was recently apprehended by two loyalists, who
found him skulking in the woods, where he had been
wandering since the fth December. When brought be
fore the magistrates, he did not attempt to justify his
conduct in the rebellion, but pleaded for a favorable
consideration of his case, oh the ground that ?
"He had saved the house of Mr. Sheriff Jar vis from
the destruction to which it had been devoted by Mc
Kenzie. He gave as his reason for this humane interfe
rence that Mrs. Jarvis was reported to be in ill health,
and that the Sheriff had formerly rendeied him per
sonal favors. Captain Stewart, who was in company
with the lamented Colonel Moodie when he was
n.urdered. and Archibald McDonald, Esq., who was
made piisoner the night that John Powell, Esq. caused
the ruffian Anderson to fall from his horse and break
his neck, both appeared before the Commissioners to
testify to the humanity of General Lount. which they em
phatically said they did with heartfelt pleasure, declar
ing that it was their full and entire conviction that, but

son, the whole of the prisoners would have been

Dear Sir ? Alas ! the war is over, and the Canadians
must yet suffer under the galling chains of bondage,
unless, as the whole of Western New York most fer
vently desires, the government will declare war upon
Great Britain, and allow this state to throw 50,000 mi
litia across the lines to drive the loyal Canucks into
Lake Octsrio.
Nothing is doing here now, and future movements
csn only be surmised. The militia are kept out, and
new enlistments aie going forward. The soldiers are
under regular pay, served with rations, and live in bar
racks, and are marching and drilling daily. This looks
at s though a war was among the possibilities.
The poor piratical patriots, or patriotic pirates, from
Navy Island, are scattered all along the Lake shore,
still hanging together, anxious to cross over our Jordan
to the land of promise ? still looking with longing eyes
upon the prospect of 300 acres of tory land, and $100 in
suver (what a bait for the locofocos f) and still ready to
conquer or die, if our government would only allow them
to cross the Ruhicon. Poor fellows! What a pity so
much good courage should have no chance to show it
self in valorous deeds ! ? thst so much pure patriotism
should be allowed to evaporate ? ? that so much chivalry
.should literally go a begging !

ly returna are to be made t? the state of all goods

two transactions, on both of which the dutiea are to
be paid. If any man shall be found guilty of mal
practices, he forfeit? his bond, and disqualifies himself
for ever frem exercising the rights or profession of
auctioneer, besides rendering himself liable to severe
pains and penalties to be executed upon him by any
police or cr.minul court. Whether it will pass the
senate is extremely doubtful. 1 do not believe that
body will yield the patronage now in the hands of
the executive. If it does, the Governor may have
qualms of conscience about the revenue, and be com
pelled, as in duty bound, to quash the wnole proceed -
Mr. Gibbs, of Washington county, moved an
amendment in committee, requiring that no citizen
should become an auctioneer unless he could procure
a certificate of character from the constituted autho
rities of iheci'.us or counties wherein he wished to
setup a selling establishment. Every body laughed
at the proposition, hut from Mr. G.'s manoeuvres, it
was soon seen that he had introduced it merely as an
excuse for making a speech. Sure enough ho bored
the com in ttt ti with a disjointed tirade against the
powers that he, leaping like a rock Ibex among the
flowers of literature, and at last running foul of Abi
j.ih the prophet. Thomas Jefferson, Roderick Dh?,
General Jackson, the whigs, the federalists, the pic
ture of General Washington, mirrors, office hunters,
tarn ly atfaira, right of uetition, slavery, currency,
small bills, regency legislation, and such like things
formed the salmagundi dished up on the occasiun for
the qniei and patient committee. II is remarks re
sombled a bu nel of broken links, and had no more
claim to the title of a speech than this maps of iron
would have to be called n chain. He told Mr. Hall
that he fear< d the bill would not pass unless tne
a Send meat was accepted, and yet on the question to
agree with the committee, this redoubted whig voted
in the affirmative!
Mann utterly demolished Mr. Gibbs. Not eo much
as a grease spot was let t where the little Washington
memoir stood. Mr. Hall smoothed down the ruffi d
temper of his opposing friend by pouring into his ear
a large vial of flattery. It acted like a charm, and
secured his vote. Mr. H. read an extract from one of
the messages of Morgan Lewis, denouncing the ap
pointing system of auctioneers, anj declaring in favor
of throwing the business entirely open.
"I request the gentleman from Herkimer to listen,
while I read the extract again," said Mr. Hall.
" Morgan Lewis is not good authority," rejoined
Mr. Mann. [Laughter ] Mr H. however read the
excerpt again. It played completely into his hands,
and contained all the argument in favor of his bill, in
a nut shell.
Mr. Sibley, the Hogarth of the House, hoped the
bill would pass.
41 While I am up, Mr. Chairman, I must notice the
assertion ef the gentleman from Herkimer, that Gen
Lewis was not good authority. The General, Sir, i8
a revolutionary hero, and if he has not actually killed
his man, it is no fault of his, for he always was on
the look out for the enemy. Is that no authority 1"
Mr. Mann shook his head,
?' Well, then, Sir, Gen. Lewis commanded in the
last war on our northern frontier, and behaved like a
man. Is that no authority ?"
Mr. Mann shook his head slowly.
''The gentleman is hard to please, Mr. Chairman.
I vow will tell him a secret. Morgan Lewis was
Chairman of the College qf Jackson electors in thU
state:? it not thai authority enough 7" [Roars of

Alba nv, Jan. 26.
There was quite a flare up in the Senate today.
Yesterday Mr. Young said, that Mr. Sterling had
been guilty of "dishonorable conduct" in pervert i*g
hi* language. It seems that Col. Young had said
some days ago, that " the Safety Fund System was
not so good a system as that which God had devis
ed." Mr. Sterling in his apeech, wished to know
what system of banking was that? He asked the
question quite humorously. At this Mr. Young sot
offended, and imputed '* dishonorable conduct" to Mr.
Sterling. Mr. S. rose this morning, explained that he
had alluded to this divine system of banking in good
feeling, and demanded an explanation. [ Sensation.]
Mr. Young got angry, and made the mailer worse.
Mr. Sterling.? Does the gentleman say he will not
ratractl 1 have explained,' and must hava a retrac
Mr. Young.? I am ready to correct errors as soon
as any man; but before I explain, I appeal to Hon.
Senatora a* to the language used.

somely. I hope the Senator from the 4th (Mr. Y.)
will meet him half way.
Mr. Voang.? I will makeno compromiae that onos
to make ine such a fool, a a to say that God had in

After Mime fuither conversation, the gallant Colonel
A question waa made by Mr. Mann, this morning,
upon the propriety of granting the reguest made by
the Atlantic Bank, for the privilege of filing in the
C'lcrk'a office of King'a county tne affidavit that all
its 'spital stock was paid in prevtona to the doora of
the hank being opened for business. It acms that
some cunning lawyer or ease hunter has discovered
a neglect on the part of the bank in tWis matter, and
entered to several sous brought by the institution
against its debtors the plea of " no such corporation."
Thus finding its existence endangered, the President
and Direciors did not deem it prudent to nek the de
cision of s court of |nstice in the present ricited state
of pablic feeling. So they have applied to the legis
lature for exemption from thia plea, hy now comply
ing with the law. The fault ta merely a clerical er
ror, yet the radicals looked big and bristled up on the
occasion. After some sparring the hill was ordered to
a tbird rending. This full and that which has just
passed, in favor of the Rank of Home came fram the
Senato. where Col. Young daly pierced them with
his two edged loeo sword. I have been thus particu
lar on this seemingly unimportant point to show how
the radicals really think. Whenever a chance shall
occur, with any hopes of carrying 'he point, tha very
first bank that trips will be nullified, if the radicals

UlLiGioH IK Niw York. ? " Several congregations
in thia city are now in an interacting sute. It would be
premature to go into particulars ; but it is aafe to aay that
there are many anxious inquirers after the way of life,
and some rejoicing in the belief that they have foand
that way. The proapect now ia, that the work will ex
tend te many charchoa."
We aopy the foregoing frem the leading Protestant
religious paper of thia city, the N. Y. Obiervir . of last
Saturday. Three fourths of the readers of the Obser
ver were apprised of the revival it alludes to some
weeks ago, through the columns of the Herald ? since
then the details of its daily progress have been furnish
ed. If the editors of the Observer do not ihenisclves
come under the influence of some of these "awaken
ings," our Sunday Herald will supplant them in the la
test religious news, as it does admittedly the Wall street
press in shipping and commercial intelligence. We
would inform the Obaerver for its own benefit, that in
stead of several congregationa merely being in an inter
esting state, many have already passed that condition ot
things and presented fulfilments of the divine figure of
speech which the ruler of the Jews, Nicedemus, found
it so hard ta comprehend. The work has already ex
tended to churches of almost every denomination, ex
cept the Catholic and Episcopal ; and we wait only the
completion af St. Peter's Cathedral to bring the former
of these also into the arena to hasten on the millenium.
Our accounts from Philadelphia represent that a sim
ilar religious excitement is in existence there ; like
causes producing like effects. The Philadelphia Cauritr
remarks on the subject, that " there is evidence that an
extensive ana genuine work of grace has commenced.
Places that have long been dry at.d barren are beginning
.o assume a new aspect."
Toaiorrow afternoon we shall show the workings of
the spirit in n different aspect, as exemplified in a recent
trial in New England, where the sayings and doings of
Pastors and their flocks, and various mysteries of reli
gion and morals, will be presented in a striking form.
New field fok Newspaper entekfrise. ? A
mwtiwri, in tiie Massachusetts Legislature, to supply
the members with newspapers, elicited a rather pro
fane observation, which was met by a very happy and
pertinent, although obvious, rejoinder.
"Mr. Adams, of Charlestown, said, since gentlemen
were desirous of taking newspapers fiom all parts of
the world, he hoped they would be indulged in extend
ing their patronage a little further. He had recently
read the works of Emanuel Swedenborg, and from
them lie learned that there were printing presses and
newspaoers in heaven. This was a fact. Swedenborg
had seen the presses in operation, and read the newspa
pers. He hoped some of the gentlemen would oraer
their papers from the celestial regions, that they and
their constituents might know what was going on there.
Mr. Perkins said the gentleman last up need not send
for Swedenborg's newspapers in order to know what
was doing in the celestial regions. All that we know
of the affairs of those regions was already in print, and
he hoped in the hands of every person, k was to be
foun4 in the old-fashioned Bible, and was amply suffi
cient for all earthly purposes."
Board or AlDeRMb.h. ? Nothing of any interest oc
cuired in the Board of Aldermen last night, subsequent
to what we published thia morning.

by the board of a great number of of reports respecting

Theatres? Monday, Jin. 29.
National Theatre. ? Last night the romantic dra
ma of the Lady of the Lake, founded upen Scott's poem,
was produced for the first time at this Theatre. It is
(jot up with that attentien to the propriety of the scene,
lor which Mr. Wallack is so remarkable, and for which
the public owe him their thanks. Let them express them
substantially. Formetly, it is known, that Richard the
Third and the chief characters of Shakespear's dra
mas, were played in powdered wigs, and the height of
grief and despair was expressed by the untying the pig
vail of the same, and letting it How distractedly in the
wind. Pope alludes to
" Cato'i corl'd wig, long gown, and Iscqaered ahair."
The Kembles worked a mighty revolution in
Theatrical affairs. Themselves ardent lovers of the
profession of which they were shining ornarnenta, they
sought to enhance its reputation bv bunging it as near
to nature as it was possible. Struck with the absurdity
of young Hamlet's playing in modern costume, they abof.
ished tne dress which had served, as well for Greek,
Turk, Koman and ancient Briton.
They pryed into the records of antiquity, for an exact
description of the costumes of the age they were to re
present : and where these failed to tnrow a light upon
ikeir laudable pursuit, they had recourse to ancient
coins from which they gleaned same information
The drama might then be aaid t* be suiubly re pre
sented for the first time. Every dress of every chief
character bad been a study, and the arms, accoutre
ments ami banners were such as once were wielded,
worn, and borne by the original actors on life's stage.
In America, Mr. Wallack is the first manager who
has adapted so Draisewortby a course. It has been ob
servable in all trie pieces that he has brought oat. It is
the more laudable as it must have been attended with
great expense. Where each revival or new piece is
brought out with appropriati soenery and dresses, the
expense must be great.
To return to the Lady of the Lake. The costumes
are in keeping, the scenery ia characteristic and beau
tiful. Bengough bids fair to follew in the footsteps of
his master, the great Stanfield.
The actors all exerted themselves to the utmost. ?
Harry Wallack played Rhoderick Dhu admirably. J.
Wallack, Jr. is improving ? his Fitz James was a high
ly creditable performance. He wants a little more pol

finish sadly.

ty of his voice. He bids fair to become a favorite with
the public. We shall leok for his next appearance to

of the andience was almost exhausted, and they were
past relishing anything.

IRISH fifnu Enwlish Oku or*. ? A metaphor, uni
versally admired, ?? characteristic of the old Irish achool
of oratory, has so generally been curtailed of its fair
proportions, that il in ijuite time to restore thein. In a
note to the Fudge Family, Moore says, "Alluding to a
hypocritical pretender to charity, the celebrated Coun
sellor B. asserted to the ^ury, that ' he put his hands
into his breeches' pocket like a crocodile.' " The figure
really employed by the eccentric knight was much more
complete. A mn of property had affected to sympa
thize with the sufferings of some poor people, sided
them with money, and eventually seduced their daugh
ter. Sir J. knew that the way to inflame the minds of a
jury of his country, was to leave something to their ima
ginations, an object which would not be attained by pre
senting simple facts and reasons, nor even by a perfect- I
ly intelligible and natural metaphor. What he actually
said was : ? " He put his hands into his breeches' pock
ets like a crockodile, drew forth his deceptive gold, and
feigned, to shed factitious tears." There cann?t be mere
beautiful disorder than this ! The crocodile's breeches'
pocket is a self-evident proposition, compared with j
the feigning to shed tears; which, however, must have
been shed, because it is maintained they were tears of a
spurious composition. Tiiere is, also, in a tangled way,
the admitted affinity between a crocodile's lachrymation J
and deceitful weeping in general. If the very same i
thought could have struck an English pleader, he would I
probably have arranged it differently. "Gentlemen of
t lie jury, the defendant put his hand into his pocket, .;nd
drew forth the gold that wns intended, in the guise of ]
compassion, to destroy the peace of this poor family ;
while tears as treacherous, and us much at command, as
those supposed to be shed by the crocodile, when he
strives to allure victims by his wail, convinced the confid
ing and grateful creatures of his sincerity." Thus am |
>lified and evolved, the Monaglian jury, would, most
ikely, have given, a* damages, a twentieth part of what j
they did give. ? From Fraier's Magazine for youember.

There is but ene ceurse at the present niement that can re

let all those which are in a retten state, or have been guilty of

reducible tu this one irraad effect, namely, impurity of the

It hath been clearly proved in fanner advertisement* that

can wethea deny the great and lending irutn, that there ia a

would arrange iueu in order, as it were of courae, and tbe whole
work is half done as soon as it be once undertaken. "Purge

aniutals, whose habits can be noticed, waader through the
fields when costive, making selection of ttiose herb* which are
suitable to opea their bowels and porify their fluids. Do we
notobeerve that tha feathered tribe, whose stomachs act by
mechanical force alone, without the solvent fluid of the gastric
juice, require the swallowing and retaining of stony particles
in proportion to their balk, to promote digestion and produce a
healthy tone in their fluids, by evacaation '
These animals of the brutal race, by thus assisting nature, le
cure themselves from epidemic contagion? though they are un
der similar laws to those which govern the human economy.
Purgation, which Is a word of equivalent valae with parifica

Are n<it ibe tides the daily and periodical purifiers af the

From such unquestionable facts as these, the all important
