The Devil to pay there?Slumm, Bangv and CrotweU.? Senator Hunter, the Millionaire?Hit Paradise upon Eaith?Bouck't Potiiion?'Ifie end of the World. With all your character for astuteness and keen perception, Master Bennett, you have done at least one negative wrong to yourself and the public. As how 1 Why, you have no regular reporter at the capital of the State, at this moment one of the most interesting points of attraction in the universe.? Why, sir, the very " devil is to pay" here?(I write from Albany, you will perceive)?and, sooth to say, " there is no pitch hot." Not a soul here, among all the wise ones, can tell you any thing ahout the position of affairs, except myself. You shall hear. But, first of all, let ine dip a little into the fun of this dull, stupid place. You know John Van Buren 1 I mean Prince John, by way of excellence, (I hate French words, and that is the reaton I do not wri'e "par excellence ") Well, John is a great quiz in his way, and iu fact I do not know a man more prone to mischief, ti ijuici traj, lunu uiai same junii?uui <H llllll more anon. I mast begin with the Governor. Mr. Bnuck,you know, brands six feet in his stockings, and is otherwise well proportioned. The cast of his countenance is benevolent, and the office seekers say he is courteous in the extreme. Not a soul of that vast army say a word against him upon any point or etiquette ; but they go the entire animil in cursing him for not opening his mouth on the subject of appointments. He receives them all in the blandest manner; and as each new com-r presents himself from your city, (and their name is " legion,") he is received in a kind and fatherly manner, and made forthwith at home. If any candidate, however, begins to press his claims, you will see his Schoharie Excellency undergoing a change from the mavitor in modo to the reserved. He seems at a loss for words to meet the numerous demands upon his official favor, and not nnfreqruently waives the applicant ofl with the consoling observation, that he is delighted with the uncommon respectability of the | gentlemen from New York, and wishes he had an office for every one of tliem He then gives the ca*?te by a mystic signal, which all seem to under- ' stand, and room is made for a recurrence of the infliction. In good truth, old Lafayette never had his right arm nearer dislocation than the Governor's, from 11 A. M. till 2 P. M., when, as you know, the dinner bell rings in all the hotels, and committees rise and report progress, and ask leave to sit again ; and Senators and Assemblymen come to a dead halt in their speeches, and move for an adjournment. 1 remember the other day of being in the Senate chamber, when a debate sprung up on that portion of the Governor's message which recommends a repetition of the instructions given last year to our representatives in Congress to vote for refunding the fine of one thousand dollars to General Jackson?a fine you may remember imposed by Judge Hall upon the old war horse for disobedience to Ins official mandate. Mr. Senator Root opened in opposition. In fact, he does three-quarters of the talk in the Senate. The Slate is, and ought to be greatly indebted to him for talking against time. It is a m/iuf nffjnfllo I ot.tnnA* lo?iolo?i??? tk^. uvov \uwiuui oiuj'1'^i uj'wu ic?iainuuu j ?uu mc country at large- is bound to honor his nine**, if tor no other reason than his persevering cacatlii? upon every question that comes up. 1 love that old man eloquent. He reminds me of that truly poetical pas sage in the bible, which speaks of Moses dying in his one hundred and twentieth year, and yet possessing all tho faculties ot mind and body in their full vigor at tl?e time. 44 His eye was not dim, uor his natural iorce abated." He (1 mean Hoot, not Moses,) is the last of the 44 cock ed hats;" and, therefore, I love his antiquity, and look upon him withth? veneration of a child. But I am grieved and sad when I hear him speak upon questions like the foregoing, where every word he utters sounds like thf hated hissing of a traitor- Where was there a bolder or more consistent democrat than Senatarr lloot in his palmy day 1 Where was there an abler defender of the last war, or a warmer admirer of General Jackson for his most glorious defence ot New Orleans'? No where, by G d. And, yet, in his old age, while 44 his eye is not aim, nor his natural force abated,*' the sensation of depression and utter sadness came over me while I witnessed the melancholy prostitution of his fine talents and mature intellect in his uniform opposition to every measure emanating from the dominant partv. There would be greatjoy in heaven over the reformation oi such a man. Speaking of politics reminds me of the existence of the firm of Slamm, Bang dc Co., a combination that you have rendered immortal. It was in your own matchless Herald that I first saw that name, style and firm given to that extraordinary party which I opine is some time or other to give law to this land of ours. I think you yourself are more than halt a locofoco, and I'm sure that the clever writer of your money articles is an entire animal.? He voted the democratic ticket, I'll take my oath of it. Go you and do likewise, and train up4'/< jeun edittur" in the way he should go politically, as well as in the fear and admonition of tne Lord, and the admiration of the Virgin Mary. Go all this with unlimited looseness I Speaking of Slamm reminds me of Croswell and Bryant. There's a juxta-posirion for you ! Cros well, the conservative?Brvant tne cooling personification of ice-water and Van Burenism, including noetry without any soul in it. and the satunic Levi I) Slamm, the red hot locofoco, radical, out andouter, who lacks only a forked tail to entitle him to take rank of the very devil himself. And yet Levi is not a bad looking man, and I learn he has good parts withal. But more of him hereafter. Don't >U ICII JMUI iraurr-, especially ine IHIlies, ^Ciod films *em) that he has a Grecian profile, Rood leeth, a loveable mouth, and, like Prince Albert, iandy hair. The ladies, you know, love sandy haired men, and lor that reason lall in love with ju-t such men as Slamm and yoursell?the former having the requisite anent the hair, and the latter ha ving the true gimlet of the eyes, like (he celebrated John Wilkes, whose determined squint made him ihe favorite of all 'he women You know it was said of him that with all his ugliness and obliquity ol vision, he could awpplant any man in the affections ?sf any lady in an interview of half an hour's duration.

Slanim, and besides, vivent bagand tails ! The subject of the public printing is yet aII the rage. I'm sick of hearing it discussed. Several times have 1 been obliged to depart trom my otherwise uniform habit of total abstinence, and take an antiemetic in consequence. By the way, an article ol yours has almost ruined all the tavern keepers in Albany- Nobody drinks wine at the table any more; it least the office seekers do not All the rum facts have become diaphorou* All right, as long as ii lasts?but the moment Jim Conner is nominated for potash, Harry Riell for tobncco, Swackhammer for flour, Vache for health olficer, Montgomery Rank in tor inspector ol hides, Paul Groin for mens nrer general, aud some twenty others for beef and O'irk?I say when all thisisdoae, as surely it will he, T his Excellency knows beans, the devil take the hindmost of the disappoin'ed, and let all tavern keepers and steam boats between this and New York thereupon, lay in an extra quantity of stimulus (' randy will rise in the market 60 per cent , while flour and the solids will depreciate for lack of con -sumption As I said before, or meant,t<l*sy.r'he public print ing is the engrossing theme. Crosweli's election as State printer is the subject of much conversation. Mo set of ihe majori'y could be more calculated to disturb the unity of the locofoco party throughout ihe State. For many years past the recipient of the public patronage, and to an amount almost 4<jiiul to haff a million of dollars, regarded as the clnei in instrument ot the defeat of his parly in 1837, unpopular in his manners and intercourse with the |*-ople. grasping and aelfi-h in h is disposition?Croswi II, yon will of course infer, is the successful man after all obnoxious ns he is to the very men who appointed him. Well, yon will ask, how was it tint under such circumstances he distanced Bryant in the com petition 1 I know a thing or two about this affair, and will tell you the story. Bryant was not popular with the minority ot the caucus, and the strong vote he polled is only an evidence of the fuller Ittliny which existed and still exists against Croswell, the old enemy, ns you know, of the Uemii of Tennessee?1 mean General Jaoksen ? i Connected with this, the entire moral force of th? 1 Mew York delegation went in favor of the appoint- 1 rnent ofSlamm as printer to the House, which it was I well known could not be effected if Bryant had ? hern elected State printer- The neutraliaition of r this influence ensured from Crosweli's sucfeas, for t W TO T YORK, SATURDAY M( notwithstanding the hearty dislike of the city mem- i bersto him, their warm, and I must nay deserved feeling, for the editor of the Plebtian, (the man < with the sandy hair [ mean), dictated the course hey pursued.

Of the twenty-live in a ori i tv received by Crnswell in caucus ten came from the first Senate District T .is vote in opposition, with the influence which it would certainly have exercised, would have laid the "Prince ol the three wall palace" most efl' clually on the shelf. 1 am satisfied that the defection in "the party" is serious, i and will result 111 making this State, in 1814, at least debateable ground. There is great coldness between the heads ot the departments and the "Old White Horse;" and it will require more tact in Gov. Bouck to ride the storm than people give him credit for. In the Senate the division is palpable, and the factions nearlv balanced. Foster, the con servative, member of Congress in 1837, who made Thomas Allen, (printer, and who .opposed Van Buren's system of finance, a man, by the bv, of considerable talent, but wanting in personal popularity, is the leading man of the majority faction. Senators Varian and Scott have, until this present writing, acted with him. How long they will remain, being shrewd politicians, I w. II not undertake to say. Then are tmidtntly alarmed Their desertion to the more popular side, the minority, would change the whole aspect of things. Of the twenty-two loenfoeo Senators, twelve have thus far identified their fate with Croswell'a. Unenviable position! Senator Hunter, one of the most able and cautious of our legislators, is at the head of the opposition. I must digress from ihe politician to speak of the m in. Did you ever take a quiet drive on the Pelham road in Westchester county, say from Harlent or thereabouts to New Flochellel No! Well, my dear fellow, mount your tilbury and chuck Mrs. B. under ihe chin, and say, " Duckv, let's go and see Senator Hunter."? Thereupon Mrs. B. puts on her shawl and says, " my dear, I'm ready," and then in two hours, by Shrewsbury clock, von fin?f vn?r.?ir !.?. m.......... of Senator Hunter, on the in are in of the Soun?1, surrounded by shrubbery and accessiories worthy of a terrestrial paradise. Yet, surrounded as he is by all that weulth can command, including paintings of the old master* in his gallery thai a million cannot buy, 1 find him a pure, single minded democrat, a perfect locofoco, a triend ot the people, an honest man, and a glorious specimen of humanity. Associated with this distinguished gentleman are the talent, honesty and enthusiasm of the Senate,? the men, who, when they speak, awake the popu lar impulse,? I mean such men as Sherwood, and Denniston, and linger, and Scott, Htid Strong and the bke?the very soul of the democracy. It will be seen from this that with such material agiinst him, Governor Bouck could not remain over two years a stranger to the county oi Schoharie.? The secret of this early opposition to the n*w Executive, is the suspicion that he will place himself under the influence of that old, corrupt, bank speculating, demoralizing, contemptible clique of managers, who, if permiited to direct, would involve the State in ruinous debt, and revive and give vitality to that infamous system of legisla tion which for so many years disgraced the Democratic ascendancy, and caused the sacred name of Democracy to stink?ay, stink in the v^-ry nostrils of the honest portion of the people. Nothing has yet. however, fallen from ihe Governor to justify the suspicion, and it hasHrisen, probably, from the fact that the men composing the old regime, proverbial as they are fortht-ir impudence and inuu?trv, inirude themselves, atall times, in the Governor's presence His very bed room is not sacred, and "Sunday shines no Sabbaih day " to him. The most modem men here are members of the firm of Slamin, Bang and Co.?or the ultra locofocos. It would be unfortunate for the old farmer, should he throw himself into the embraces of improper men. 1 know that they will break down his administration in three months, snd make him the most unpopulai Governor New York ever had -always saving and excepting that first executive from the agricultural community, Goveinor Yates?him that used to refer all applicantrf'o the one Democratic representative from New York city, with the words?"

We are now in the middle of winter, the weather intensely cold. The thermometer for one 'or two da>s was from five to ten degrees below r.ero, which in unusual for this place. We have had beautiful sleighing for the past ten days, which is uncommon for our city?seldom is the earth covered with snow for more than two or three days at a time. Our young men have embraced the opportunity of givinc sleigh rides to their favorites, the ladies; some of them,I grieve to say, found it much more convenieni to pay the livery stable keeper for his sleigh and one horse, at the rate of one dollar per hour, than th-ir bills contracted for the necessaries of life, such as bo rd bills, tailor's bill, and washe.rwoinan'bill; all those must be deferred, postponed and put ofl to a more ' convenient season," to give young men an opportunity of appearing well and highly born to the fair creatures, who are duped and misled by these would like-to-be considered wealihy men, and honorable without tne stamp of merit. Many of the young ladies are taught to believe all is "gold that glitters," and if they can succeed in gaining the hand of a young man of this class, their voyage down the stream of life will be attended with all the pleasure their imagination portrays to them " Who chooscth from among that class shall get as much as she deserves." The young man. who acts n >bly and manly, and make known to them, whom their fancies choose, that " all ihe wealth hey possess runs in their veins," are hooted from the presence of their admirers by maiden aunts, who i set themselves up to choose for others, possessing i diff*rentfeeling and disposition i All was Itle and animation on New Year's day Weather beautiful.

At a public ball i ;iven at Concert Hall, Mr B. 9.

Thedilficulty of transmitting funds to distal t points is as great as ever. A gentleman a ew days since had occasion to pay five thousand dollars in Iowa; after making every enquiry, and re-orting to every expedient, lie was compelled to transmit the gold, and to pay a very considerable sum to an individual to lake it on. ThiH inconvenience was unknown when the United States Hank was in existence. Then it W48 only neccpaary to enclose a post note payable to order, and pay twenty-five cents postage, and in due course ot mail it would be placecl at any p unt without loss or inconvenience The difference between now and then can hardly he ca'cuNud.'* i Now Mr Bennett I have never read as stupid an article as the one I have just quoted, and to come from Mr. Brooks, who makes pretensions to financial knowledge, it is outrageous.

I had always thought you had done h.m great injustice in giving him ihe name of "booby Brooks," but the article I have taken from his paper, confirms me in the justness of the appellation, and I might add with propriety " silly."

This is a great State, and conspicuous amongst nil the rest for otir great financiers You talk of Wall street; why, sir, Wall street is not a begin ning to us. We can make und unmake banks taster, we can swindle by them, and still be noticed ill the community; we can build large houses, hold possession of them, and take the benefit of the bankrupt law, and live in them, perchance be the owner after we get through; we can move banks from one part of the State to the other, one day paying specie and 'he next refusing; all th's can we do in the way of banks, and be sustained by the community. We are natural born financiers; half a dozen ot our merchants are hankers. They have a large circulation of their own, what you call shinp'ast'r*.? J To be sure this is a penitiarv offence, but we are so fond of paper, if it has the least semblance of money, that it is tolerated ; besides, paper is so much .nore sightly than coin, a quarter printed like a bank note on a large piece of paper, signed by half a dozen of res|>ect ihle men, ol financial talents, is more respectable It has not a locofocoish look?nothing vulgar. Our legislature, thinking they could legislate to please Us, passed a law piohihiting the i-une of small notes, and made it a penal 'flence The law is a dead letter, and although "he circulating notea of all the banks that are doing business are redeemed in specie, si ill the State is over run with small hills and very little specie of course in circulation Specie is very troublesome. The head of financiers now is John O Winter, a very worthy, clever, talented man. He is at the head of the St. Mary's Hank, and has a large amount of small notes in circulation drawn in Florida us cheeks, from six cents to one dollar, payable in Columbus, Augusta und Charleston, less two per cent. He has sii agent in every town in the Stnte, and his business is to travel from one end of the State to the other with his bag full of notes, to keep every place supplied with the amall notes, as he finds it quite embarrassing when Hny considerable amount n returned upon nim T)r Collins is our next distinguished financier, and a good man he is in everv -ruse. He has been at the he d of several banks, ill of which apivared to thrive from his prescriplions, hut believing he has nad a good deal of experience, he will understand the systoms even better in future; at any rate he has confidence in himself snd purchased the Hawkrnsville Bank.

A? it costs about three cents, and will be in every body'* hand, we need not trouble ourselves by giving sny outlina of the character and plot of Martin's Adventures, so tar ** developed in these introductory chapter*. W? do not think, however, from the specimen before us, that this work will add much to Mr. Dickens' repu tdtion. There are occasional flaahes of that quaiat humor which so highly characterized some of hia former productions, but the style is generally laboured, and in often very pointless and very dull. Tom Hdrkr of " Orns " By Charlen Ijtvtr, Etq. ?This work will form the second volume of "Our Mew," and front the style and character of tha first part, which has been published in an extra " New World," we have no hesitation in forming the opinion that " Tom Bukkk " will prove himself entirely worthy of companionship with hm accomplished and agreeable predecessor " Jack Ihnton, who met such a fl t'UrinK reception from 'he public. Dr. Lever is, we consider, in many points I*r superior to Mr. Dickens. In humor, pathos, snd t-kill in the delineation of character, Lever ia fully equal to Boi, whilst lie far excels him in his descriptions of natural scenery, and vigorous developm*nt of incidents.

The new story which Mr. Lover has commenced under the rather singular title of "L S. D "promises to lie exceedingly interest ng, and though much of it will obviously be more instructive on the other aide of the water, yet, we will venture to say, that it will not be read uaprofitably here. Windsor Casti.r?By W. H. jlinswarth ? A very excellent and interesting hiatorical romance, lull ot love and murder, and atnilhng incidents. The Loitkrinos of Arthur O'Leary?By Cfuu.
