NEW YORK HERALD.
S?w York., Wedneiday, Ali|[Ult 14, 1444, The Decency of the Party Preu. We continue on our first pHge the extracts from tlie leading articles of the organs of both parties And these are the the papers which arrogate to thennelves all the decency, respectability and mo ral influence of the newspaper press in this coun try ! Read these extracts, all ye who revere the institutions and would defend the honor of your country, and blush tor these representatives of the political press of the United States! Thank Heaven, however, there is a power which will yet chastise these corrupt party prints into decency, and that is independent public journalism. A Visit to tlia mountains of New Jersey. One of the pleasantest excursions in the neigh borhood of this city, is that to the mountains of New Jersey, about sixty miles from New York. The route lies through one'of the most picturesque and delightful districts that can possibly be met with in any section of the Union. The mountains are accessible in one day with the greatest ease and comfort imaginable. The traveller starts by the Railroad cars from the me tropolis at 8 o'clock in the morning, and arrives at Mornstown in two|ft?d a quarter, or two and a half hours; and from thence to Schooley's mountain, a distance of t wenty miles over the mountains, is ac complished in stages in a few hours. This drive is indeed most delightful, the road being picturesque nui l^e extreme? now passing over a high 1 ? . an^ now through a pleasant valley sleeping in the shade, whilst the prospect at every point presents the most varied and agreeable landscape in the world?the deep green woods?the richly cultivated fields?the lofty verdant hills?the cottages and farm-houses glistening in the bright sun?glimpses of distant mountains?waterfalls, glittering like silver, far away in the hills?all ma king up a scene so varied, so new, so calm and peaceful, that the weariest soul experiences its bliss ful influences, and soars for the time from this world of di-quietude, to a land of purer airs and softer skies of its own creation. On every hand the scene ts truly American. There is a vastness and a grandeur in the landscape peculiarly charac teristic. The very.sky itself seems loftier, and the air freer than in the lam's beyond the sea ; and one cannot but be deeply impressed with the character of happiness and prosperity with which the whole scene appears to be impressed. It seems as if peace and liberty rejoiced together, as they walk hand in hand amid those quiet hills, and that their solemn words of prophecy and triumph, are echoed by a thousand airy voices in the smiling vales below. Morristown is a charming little village. There is here one of the finest hotels in the country-a building, which in point of extent, elegance, and comfortable accommodation, has nothing to fear from comparison with the Astor House itself, and capable of lodging one hundred persons with the greatest ease, and in the first style. This fine budding has been erected by the munificence of Mr. Gibbons?the famous steamboat proprietor. At this moment a number of the most respectable famines m New York are rusticating at this house; the male branches generally visiting the city every day, going and returning by the railroad. The parlors and dining-rooms, are of the most spacious and elegant dimensions?and the bed rooms are so iv.ativ models of neatness, elegance, and comfort. One of the great charms of a residence at Morris town, is the cool, delicious, health-infusing morn ing and evening air. No matter how hot the noon day sun, in the quiet evening the air is cool, fra grant, and refreshing, as if it came from the bower of Paradise. At Schooley's Mountain there are two houses of entertainment-one is "Belmont Hall," conducted by Mr. Hinchman,?the other, conducted by Mr. M in>h. Belmont Hall is a large building, capable of accommodating upwardsof one hundred visitors. It stands on a point elevated about twelve hundred feet above the level of tide-water. It has spacious piazzas, and is sheltered from the rays of the sun by a solemn old wood, of tall and venerable forest trees on one side, and a beautiful apple orchard on the other. Marsha's house is of smaller dimensions, but is surrounded by a number of lodging houses, which enable the proprietor to accommodate ns many visitors as Belmont Hall. The houses are situated within a few rods of each other, and both are distant about one mile and a quarter from the "spring," which bubbles up from the mountain brow, and is considered of great efficacy in calcu lous complaints. Belmont Hall is very well conducted. The rooms aie extremely cool, clean, airy and comfort able, and the table is always well laid out, and provided with an abundant supply of the good things of this life; to which the bracing mountain air enables the guest to do ample justice. One ol the principal amusements at this place is driving about the country, and riding on horseback. At Belmont Hall there are several good trotting horses, and the exercise is, we need hardly say, very beneficial to people from this city. At each of the houses there is a small band of music; and generally in the even ing there is a social dance, in which tnose fond of that amusement enjoy themselves very much. There is none of the bustle and noise, and confusion and pretension here, ihat are met with at the huge watering-places where the crowds go. One of the peculiar features of this part of New Jersey is its locofocoism. It is quite over-run with locofocoism. At almost every cross-road you see a tall hickory-pole, sometimes old and marked wiih the frosts of years, and sometimes still bear ing all the evidences of being recently planted.? Very few "ash-poles" are to be met with?the soil appears to be quite barren of them. On Saturday last the loeofoens had three or four meetings in different directions in this region of the mountains. One was held at Hope, another at Anderson, and others at other places. The meeting at Madison was attended by the Hon. Eh Moore, of this citv, Jno S. Bush and A. Welles, Esqrs All of these gentlemsn spoke, and also Mr. Crane of Mississippi. The whole affair was a sort of holyday to the country people in the neighborhood, and the boys and girls had a regular "frolic."? There were probably upwards of twelve hundn d persons on the ground, of all ages and both sexes. After eating a famous country dinner of capital roast pig and boiled chickens, interlarded with fresh butler, hoi corn and ap,.le pies, and washed down wiih native whiskey, the crowd adjourned to a beautiful apple orchard, and there listened to Mr. Moore, who made a great speech to them of three h urs length, from a slump immediately be neaih a glorious old apple-tree?ihe clusters of ripe golden fruit hanging about his head. He spoke of the tariff and other matters in the usual style of Tammany Hall, only a little more spicy, to suit the oountry appetite. Mr. Crane and Mr. Bush follow, ed, and Mr. Welles wound up with a very capital ?p-ech. In these political gatheringstheladies.it appears, are as much, if not more, in earnest than the men* They go in crowds in their wagons to all these meetings. Indeed this region is quite overrun with locofocoism, the only spot free from it being the top of the mountain, where the houses of entertain ment are situated; and they are filled mostly with good respectab'e whiga from Philadelphia and New York Many of these visitors.do not dare to de scend the mountain for fear of being infected by the prevailing epidemic; and, in several instances those who have gone to the valley below have come back quite changed men. Chasminq Fxcwrsion.?The "Thiatle Associa tion" of this city?a benevolent and most meriton oua society?make an excursion next Friday up the Hudson in the crack steamboat, the "South Ame rica." The proceeds are to be appropriated to the relief of widows and orphans. Fare only fifty otnts. "Stepup to tha Captain's office and settle " Ncwa from Kuropr, The Acadia ia the neat steamer due from Eng land, and she wilt probably reach Boston on Sa turday or Sunday next. She left Liverpool on the 4th inst., and will, therefore, bring fifteen days ldtei news. It ia said, that in the event of the arrival of the steamer at Boston, after the mail leaves that city on Saturday afternoon, and before Monday morn ' tng, the government will forward her mail bags by 1 express, aud thus anticipate the regular mail from twelve to twenty-four hours. This is what the go vernment ought to have done a long time ago. It has been apparent to the public, that for the last two or thtee years, we have beaten the post office almost as often as the steamers have arrived at Boston. This has aroused the government, and they are now determined to act. Let us see what they will do. Political Movements, We present below another " secret circular," de signed only for the private eye of the postmasters and office holders of the present administration. We did not obtain it from the "State Printer" at Albany, although it appears that it is in content pla'ion to establish a Central Administration paper at the seat of the Slate government. From the cha racter of this circular, we firmly believe that it will create a tremendous sensation, almost approaching to that produced by the Ami Texas Bulletin, and doubtless the Whigs will use them both as paper shields to ward off'some of the shot of the enemy. But here is the circular:? Washington, July, 1844. Sia The position in which the friends ot President Tyler have placed him by the proceedings of the late Ty ler National Convention at Baltimore, leaves us no alter native hut prompt and eneigetic inea-ures in his behalf. Whiitevermay bethe result, it isourduty to the President, to ourselves,and to the country ,to make vigorous aud unp ad efforts. Oi ganizatiori in each Hiate and in each county is inJispensabie. An Electoral Ticket must also be at once formed, aud all other necessary and proper measures adopted To c.Hrry out effectually the purposes we have in view, it is also indispensable that our friends rally in support of our Central Organ in this city, and also place the local Administration pspers in each State on elevated ground, and beyond the reach ol contingency. Most of our presses are under incumbrances,arising from that want of a gene rous support which they had a right to expect from the friends oi the Administration, and which was alike due to them, to the cause, and to its friends. We must, there tore, be permitte'1 to urge upon you and upon all those whose position aud whose relation to the Ad ministration authorises a direct appeal to them, te show themsrlvt s, and manifest the sincerity of their adhesion to the Administration by at once coming up to the rescue of our presses, by placing them on a permanent basis. In no other mode can the principles oi the Admin istration be developed?in no other mode can we complete that organization necessary to our success, and in no other mode can ear professed iriends at this late period in the canvass, so effectually prove that their professions ol friendship to the Administration are not merely profes sions. In this appeal to our true and genuine friends, we feel that there is no propriety in using other than plaiu and iutelligible language, and that in no other way aan we apply the pr per tests by which to judge the real feelings and purposes of these who aver that they are friends of the Administration. The time has passed when professions alone can be relied upon, and if those who furnish no other proof than professions should hereafter he classed with and treated as our enemies-theirs will be the fault. They have an opportunity ot making a selec tion of their position Those who are Iriends in truth, desire John Tj ler's success?those who desire his success will use their exertions and all the proper means to pro mote it-and those who would promote it have new au apportunity of lurnishing the evidence that such is their end and aim. | May we, Sir, expect that you will promptly act upon our suggestions, as your own sense oi propriety and your feelings towards our cause may prompt you ? The following papers iu your State are, in our judg ment entirely to be relieved from their embarrassments, and to he placed ou a permanent basis by the friends of the Administration. Your obedient servant, N M. MILLEB, Corresponding Secretary of the Tyler National Central Committee. Mr Dear Pi*?At the earnest solicitation of the leading friends of the President. I shall iasue a Central Adminis tration paper, at Albany, called "The New York State Republican," which, they say, must and shall te sustain ed. You are, therefore, requested to enclose to my ad dress. at that place, upon the receipt of this, what yon wilt cant> iliutt lher>for in adilition ta ynur subscription for the. Weekly for one year, or return thii Circular and Prospectus Yours very respectfully, HIRAM GUMMING. The spirit and tone of this circular ia most pecu liar and amusing. The draft on the "real feelings" of the friends ol Tyler evinces much tact, and the intimation to those office holders who refuse to contribute to the support of this political black mail newspaper, to return the circular and prospec tus, ia full of meaning and intent. Many a poor devil who now holds place will open his eel skin wallet and send a five or ten on account, while others of more wisdom will hold on, waiting the action of the political tide before they part with any I spare funds to support a third ticket. We shall watch this"confidential"movement the second,with great anxiety. Great times these?the contest thick ens apace?and the Tyler men will be the death of us yet, with their infinite and ever varying fun and humor. The Empire Club of this city turn out in grand procession to-morrow night, to arouse the de mocracy of the city and county. They will be ac companied by Lothian's excellent band, and the display of banners, empty cider barrels, coon skins, and other emblems, will excite much attention. The Whig Mass Convention of the river coun ties will be held at Albany, on Tuesday, the 27ih instant. They also hold a mass meeting at Sing Sing to day. All the Clay clubs of the city go up in the steamboat Columbus this morning at 8 o'clock. The democrats are preparing for a mass meeting at Newburgh, or some other point on the river. The democracy of Jefferson and the adjacent counties, gather in mass meeting at Watertown on the 20th inst.; the democracy ol Oswego, at Mexico, on the 22d; the democracy of Onondaga on the j 24th, at Skaneateles. Each of these assemblages will be addressed by the Hon. Silas Wright. They will, without doubt, be numerously attended. The Democratic State Convention of Massachu setts, meet to-day at Worcester to nominate a Gov ernor, Electors, tec. The democrats of this city assemble in ward meetings next Tuesday, to Belect delegates to re present them at the Syracuse Convention, to nomi nate a Governor, Lisutenant Governor, Electors, See. The Nashville Convention.?This will be a tremendous gathering. The locofocos of the south west will be there in tens of thousands. "Old Hickory" is to preside, and his appearance there will be as that ot a prophet arisen from the dead.? All the great orators and leaders of the south and west will be there. The young democrats of the north will be represented by Mr. Gansevort Mel ville?a stalwart son of the Empire State, and good chip ot the hickory tree, if we may judge of him by the abuse which he shares with Mr. Polk's grandfather, and all the other subjects of the polite attention ot the respectable party presses of the whigs. Amusing ?It is often very amusing to read the bursts of patriotic feeling which are occasionally met wi h in the party papers. We think the Demo cratic journals blow off the gas in this way rather more vigorously than their opponents. The Ple beian yesterday in a long bombastic article, talked about the hearts of ihe Democrats " dilating with joy" at the prospect of extending the blessings ol free government into the plains of Texas. The only " dilating" we believe in, is that of the nos trils of these same patriotic politicians, when their olfactories are snuffing up the steam of the flesh pots. The Jews?Another meeting of Young Israel was held last night, in furtherance of the object oi their recent movement. This will be a notable affair yet, albeit, many valorous and mighty men are holding back from the struggle, " nursing their wrath to keep it warm j" among the rest Old Noah, who, it is surmised, is, in imitation of his great progenitor, engaged in building an ark, wherewith to escape from ihe rising tribulation of the faith ful. To your tents, O Israel ! Travelling, tec -The city is full of Strangers Irom all parts ot ihe Union?ihe watering places are ugreeably crowded to suffocation ?money is dying in all directions?the Polka is the rage at Saratoga?and the good old time* of "water lots" are coming again Arrival of the 1'hii.aoklphia Natives?At a little after three o'clock yesterday afternoon, quite a crowd had collected on the Battery to see those very wonderful native stranger*. On entering by eit ter of the numerous gates, an advertisement, in plain, legible round hand, which showed some proficiency in the art of writing, met the readei's eye, and gave him an invitation, if a real Ameri can Republican, to go on board the "South Ame rica" steamer, whxh was to leave the wharf at two o'clock, for the purpose of escorting the breth ren from the sister city, of glorious, pious and flamiug memory. We were one of the majority who stop|>ed, thinking it quite enough good fortune in one day if we could get a glimpse of those he roes either upon land or water. The good steamer shortly after came in Bight on her return, and it was immediately discernible that she had had the good fortune to speak the craft "Native," on its perilous voyage from Philadelphia to New York? almost the first time it was ever accomplished by any of that enterprizing, but recently discovered race of men?the natives. Slap went a cannon? bang went another, and so on, until there was a very neat and decent bit of a smoke raised, in which the South America was enveloped as com pletely as "Walter the doubter," when, pozed with legal points and Dutch paradoxes, he aflectiouately besougtit, in the fumes of his meerschaum, that wherewith he might become logical and clear enough in his intellect to sift his difficulties. It was rather a mystified sight to look at the spot where the steamer was supnosed to be enveloped in clouds of Bmokc. We endeavored to catch a glimpse of the Fort on Governor's Island new and again, thinking that sympathy with the smell of powder, if not respect for the renowned ship " Na tive," would induce them to give her a few rounds. With feelings of deep commisseration for their disappointment, we have to record that, albeit the Philadelphiaii6 and their escort, passed in most provoking familiarity quite close to the Fort, and the North Carolina, the Princeton, &c-, they were utterly neglected, and left to waste their powder on the desert air. After ascending the North River as far as Canal street, the steamer returned to pier No. 1, and a procession was formed, and every effort made to increase it on its way to the Battery. In the mean time this notable craft, the " Native," had come in Bight, manned by some ten men, in a commo dious summer garb of red flannel shirts and black oilskin caps, and anchored about one hundred yards from the Eattery wall. She was a good deal gazed at, but we are not aware that the scrutinizing eyes of the crowd discovered more than that she was about 12 to 15 tons, full rigged as a ship, orna mented with two flags, one on the main royal, the othcratthe rnizen peak, and each one larger than her mainsheet. About seven yards of six-penny red ribbon fluttered in the wind, the one end being tied to some elevated part of the rigging. The reception of the renowned and heroic crew took place, as far as we could discern, at Rabineau's baths: no cold water was thrown upon it, and it was a spunky affair for the size of it. The proces sion having, alter a temporary dispersion, re-formed, being reinforced by one or two dozen of the illus trious strangers, moved off up Broadway, its nume rical force being just one hundred and eighteen, young and old, big and little, not including the band,?each of whom blew so hard, that little was left of their attenuated forms to reckon upon. | We have the satisfaction of stating, that there was a very strong and very blue banner carried before them, composed not of first-rate No. 1 silk, nor ol satin, either, but of stout, serviceable, No. 6 tailors' canvass: it cut a smart figure, and blended har moniously with the general features of the assem bly. When we were tired admiring this unmatched tum-out, and a little too tired te follow them farther, we left them opposite the American Mu seum, as a fitting place for consigning all that is rare, curious, novel, and grotesque. The following ib a list of the officers of the "Na tive American :? Capt Peter Albright; Lieut. Thoroaa Brewiter ; Pilot, John Friend : Sailing Maater and Gunner, M. Wi?e ; Steward, Geo Kricler ; Sail Mailer, C Fartner ; Carprn ter, : homaa Hammitt; Surgeon. Henry McCully, M. D.; Purser, John Fistar. The Lazarus of the New York Press ? Amongst the other charitable deeds which we have been guilty of and unostentatiously performing every day for the last ten years, is our practice of casting crumbs to the poor devils amongst our con temporaries who will not dig, and to beg are not ashamed. We have fed the Expreu in this way for years, and yet, unlike his brethren of Spain and Ireland, Lazarus does not get fat, probably because he curses instead of blesses the hand that gives employment to his jaws?the only thing powerful or industrious about him. That print regularly steals from our columns, and publishes what it filches in its evening pape-, from which the country papers copy, and of course give credit to the t'xprtu. We can aflord to be generous, and indeed it is our nature to be so?we can't help it. Take this too, Lazarus?and say with Florizel? " I am bound to you, There i? noma iap in this !" Whitewashing the Court of Sessions.?We hear that the interior of the CouTt of Sessions is to be remodeled and whitewashed. It needs white washing?that's certain. But we rather think the operation is beyond the reach of the brushes ordi narily used by mortals. Outraged Justice may indeed well exclaim, " Out damned spot 1" but while those walls, blackened with the corruption of years, remain, the very stones must call out against the iniquities of which they have been the witnesses. Removal of the Post Office.?The opposition to the removal of the Post Office originates with a bank in Wall street, that owns the property on which the buildings are at present located. The meeting in the Park this afternoon will likely be funny. "To the Benevolent."?The advertisement with this heading which appeared in our columns the other day, and intended to draw attention of charitable ladies to a deserving object of benevo lence, was inserted by one of the most respectable dental surgeons in this city?Dr. A. C.Css le?from the most praiseworthy motives. A former para graph in reference to it was written in ignorance of its respectable source, and in consequence of the representations of individuals who had most unne cessarily taken offence at it, because lhey happen ed to reside in the same dwelling with the sufferer. The Hot Weather.?The " natives" and the root-beer fountains are in a terrible state of effer vescence. An itineratingestabl^hineu, of " health and temperance," kept by a meritorious reformed inebriate, near the Park, exploded yesterday from the heat, anil a party of the "natives" issued the prospectus of anew paper to be called "Young America;" the little organ at present in existence being considered too much of an old, asthmatic, garrulous concern, by the young hot-blooded re formers. The evenings are getting cool, however and the wearied loafers on the Battery lift up their heads and rejoice, as the fresh breezes from our lovely bay sweep over that charming promenade. Camp Meetings 'The season for camp meetings lias s?-t in. The young men and the maidens are frolicking in the pleasant groves of this glorious land, and the Father Millers are thrusting in their sickles into the harvest of folly, fanaticism and coppers. The Van Rensselaer Difficulties ? Alt is at present qniet in this tempeduous teapot. The dif ferent partiesare awaiting the action of the Gover nor. It is probable thai the difficulty will be ar- ! tanged on just and amicable terms. Express from Boston ?The train from Bos over Long Island, arrived at an early hour I evening, and we are indebted to Adams <Y Co. Boston papers of yesterday morning British Protective Emigrant Society. The above is the title of an association which has lately been formed, having for its object to afford advice, aid and protection to emigrants coming to this country to better their condition. The British Con sul and the Presidents of the St. George's, St. An Andrew's and St. David's Society, are among itB officers, and under such promising auspices, it can not fail to be successful. Such a Society has long been a desideratum in this city, and we have more than once called atten tion to this matter. There is not a more valuable class of emigrants iu existence than those tor whose special benefit|this laudable step has been taken-the sturdy, steady, and persevering operator* ot Eng land, Scotland and Wales. When the numerous obstacles which emigrants have to encounter on an arrival in a strange country are borne in mind, the perplexities of a transition from their homes, their friends, their customary pursuits, their fa miliar associations, to a situation in life in which the people, the scenes, the manners, and modes of life are new, it is not difficult to appreciate the value of a friendly intercession of such a Society as this Tne class of persons which, in this case, are sought to be benefited, although intelligent and efficient in their peculiar callings,are far from being remarka ble for versatility of taleut, mental resource, or 'hat smartness, which is, perhaps, the most valuable qual ity for an up-hill contention with theworld.orat least that part of it with which they have to do. Simple, honest and confiding, they are too frequently expos ed to the designs of tricksters,,who too often take advantage of them to serve their own ends. The varied resources too of this country, its extent and peculiarities are often little known to emigrants,yet it is of high importance that he Bhould know them. The St. Patrick Benevolent Society since its or ganization, has done incalculable good in this way; and the success of it# operations affords the strong est ground for encouragement to those who are so meritoriously engaged in the formation of this new confederation. We have only to add that it has our best wishes, and we are sure the approbation of all who desire the happiness and properity of the industrial classes. The Mexican Steamers ?Since the arrival of the two Mexican war steamers at our port, for re pairs, and the consequent contrast between the athletic proportions of American seamen, and the diminutive appearance of the half breed and half Spanish Mexican sailors, the commanders of these vessels have very wisely, or perhaps unwisely, pro ceeded to ship an almost entire American crew. They contemplate the selection of about one hun dred American and British seamen, for each ves sel, and are offering the highest rate of wages for their crew. A day or two since an old American Jack tar, who had been solicited to ship on board one of these steamers, called|the " Guaduloupe," quietly I sauntered through her main deck, and meeting | with one of the petty officers,the following colloquy ensued. ??Well, Jack, do you want to shipT' " No, I'm not very particular about it. I w ouldn't mind it?with good rations, good pay, and good usage" ... i " Oh, you'll get all that. We had a pretty hard time out, rations rather short and nothing to brag of, but we'll lay tn a stock here that'll supply us." " Well, that's pretty fair talk, and I don't know but I'll ship, provided you'll allow me one condi tion." ?' Oh, yes, we will, what's that J" " Why, its nothin' more or less than this < r ? give me the runnin wages, good rations, ru ud ' tobacco, and one thing more, and then I'll s ihe roll." . I " Well, what's the one thing more 1" " That's this, my old boy?should an American ship ever bring your bloody smoke-jack into action, allow me the privilege to hawl down your moun sieur lookin ensign, for damn my eyes, if I'd ever fite a shot against the flag of my country." The old salt gave his tobacco quid a twirl through his mouth, slapped it down on the deck, and waddled ashore without waiting for the reply of the petty officer. Should thisspirit actuate the Yankee crew, and the Texan government have discernment and enterprize sufficient to fit out a few steamers or merchantmen, prepared with every implement and a largejcomplement of men to board these vessels, there may be some lun with but little bloodshed before they suirender to the enemy. From present appearances, it will be about four weeks before these vessels are ready to depart for the Gulf of Mexico, and from that time to their arrival at one of ihe Mexican ports, we may look for some thing like a privateer's morning talk or an evening visit. Gulick Guards.?Presentation of a Pair of Colors hy Mayor Harper ?Yesterday this com pany, which had been on a visit, were presented with a pair of guide colors (the Ameri can Hag,) by Mayor Harper, on behalf ot a num ber of young ladies. Promptly at two o clock, the company was on the ground, in front of the City Hall, headed by Dodsworth's Cornet Band, and accompanied by a Bmall brass field piece belonging to the company. His honor, in presenting the colors, made a few observations, but owing to the great vigilance and attention of his attendants, and the guard keeping the ground, we were not allowed to approach near enough to hear what was said. The colors were received by Morris Franklin, Esq. in behalf of the company, who on receiving them, addressed his honor on behalf of the Gulick Guards. After which, they proceeded by steamboat Ameri can Eagle to New ttochelle, for an encampment of five days. This company is composed of fire men, in fire dress, appeared in excellent order, and had an imposing appearance. They go on encampments every year, and have an armory ol their own and equipments for lilty men, all of which is the property ot the company. They have been organized about ten years. Mons. de Korponay.?Our accounts from Sara toga inform us, that this now notable artiste is supported in the warmest manner by the whole elite of that place. He numbers among his pupils Ex-Presideuts, commodores, ambassadors, sol dier#, statesmen, and citizens of every profession Indeed, it is rumored that one or twodistinguished men in holy orders have become 60 enamored of the Polka, as to take lessons in that spiritualle dance. His Flora Ball was thronged to an unpre cedented extent; and many who were on the eve of their departure, have delayed that event in order to be present at his Fortuna Ball to-duy. Mons. Bley, the violinist, is earning for himself additional fame on account of the able way in which he leads the orchestra, and the admirablf manner of hie performance of the favorite Polka, composed by Madame Korponay, and dedicated to the Austrian Ambassador, and published in this city. This piece is very frequently called for, and Mons. Bley does it full justice. Mons. de Korponay next goes to Newport, ha ving made an engagementjo that eflect.^ Palmo's Opera House.?Last night displayed s galaxy of fashion and beauty, to witness the truly amusing entertainments provided by the Ethiopian Serenades.

We find the following addiess in the St. Louis papers relative thereto. To the People of Wariaw, in Hancock County i I am continually iulo. med of your preparation* imd throat* to renew the war, anJ exterminate the Mormon*. One would *uppo8e that you ought to re?t sati*fled with what \ ou havu already done. Tha Mormon leader#, il they ever re?j?ted the law, have submitted to its authori* ty. They have surrendered the public arm*, and appear ed to b j ready to do any thing required, to make atone ment for whatever wrong may have been done. Since the assassination of th. ir own principal leader*, under circumitancek well calculated to inflame their passsions, and driveJttH-m to excesses for the purpose of revenge, they huvc been entirely peaceful mid submissive; and have patiently awaited the slow operation of the laws to redress the wrongs of which they complained. There has en no retaliation; no revenge; and lor any thing I can ascertain, there will be none. Those of your peo ple, w ho are charged with being the most hostile to them, have lived, if they knew it, in perfect security from il legal violence. 1 am anxious for a pacification of your difficulties. You cannot drive out, or exterminate the Mormons. Such an effort would be madness, and would not be permitted by the people of the State. You can not be sustained in it either by lorce or law. You are blinding yourselves to your weakness, and keeping up an agitation which must tail of the purpose intended, and recoil with terrible energy upon your own heads. I ex hort you to reconsider your infatuated resolutions.? Try your Mormon neighbors again, and if you cxnnot dwell together in amity, you may at least refrain from injuring each other. From the moderation of the Mor mons, under what they conceive to be the deepest inju ry, you might well hope that if they ever entertained designs inconsistent with your libeity and happiness, that those designs have been abandoned. They are also interested in preserving the peace. It is not natural to suppose that they, any more than yourselves, wish to live in continual alarm. They hope for quiet, and will be peaceful and submissive in order to enjoy it. But you arc continually driving them to desperation by an insane course of threatening and hostility, and depriving your selves of jieace by the same means used to disquiet them. II 1 have said anything severe in this address, 1 pray you. attribute it to my deep conviction that your course is im proper and unwarrantable. Such is the opinion ot the people at large in the state, and all over the country. From being right in the first instance, you have put your selves in the wrong, and there are uone who sustain you. As men of sense you are bound to see, If you will open your eyes, that you cannot effect your purjiose*. Never theless you are still training and drilling, and keeping to gether and threatening a renewal of the war. 1 have said to you oltcn that you cannot succeed ; by this time you ought to see It yourselves. What can your small lorce do against two thousand armed men, entrenched in a city, and defending themselves, their wives and their children 7 Besides, it you are the aggressors, I am deter mined that all the power of the state shall be used to pre vent your success. I can never agree that a set of infatu ated and infuriated men shall barbaroualy attack a peace ful people, who have mbmitted to all the demands of the law ; and when they had lull power to do so, refrained from inflic'ing vengeance on their enemiea You may count on my most determined opposition?upon the op position of the law, and upon that of every peaceful law atiding citizen of the country This is not spoken in anger. God knows, 1 would do you no injury unless compelled to do so to sustain the laws But mob violence must be put down. It is threatening the whole country with anarchy and ruin. It ia menacing our lair form of government, and destroying the confidence of the patriot in the institutions ot his country. I have been informed that the Mormons about Lima and Macedonia, have been warned to leave the settlements. They have a right to remain and enjoy their property. As long a* they are good citizens, they shall not be molested ; and the sooner those misguided persons withdraw their warning and re trace their iteps, the better it will be lor them. July 26, 1944. THOMA8 10RD. Mrs. Emma Smith, the widow of the late Proph et, came down aB far as Qnincyon hoard the etea mer Osprey ; on the last trip ol the lone the widow of Hirain Smith also visited Quincy. The object of these visits is said to be to induce the civil au thorities to do something towards arresting some of the persons concerned in the murder of their hue The Nauvoo Neighbor still upholds the absurdi ties of Mormonism as a true system of religion, and we suppose tilts is because that paper is tinder the control of the priesthood and leaders, who ex pect to retain their greatness by retaining their sys tem of priestcraft. This is a usual occurrence among bigots and ianaltcs, who expect to rule the common people by means of superstition. Navigation of thk Dkmoinhs.?The St. Louis New Era gives us the following account The little steam boat Reveille arrived last evening from the Demoines river. She has twice ascended the river since she left here?about lour week* since. On her last trip she succeeded in reaching Fort Raccoon, ihe highest point on the river which had been visited previousfy by steamboats. The Reveille went about six miles above the Fort, which is that much further than any boat has jver gone before. On her second trip she only went to Meek's Mills, about fifty miles alwve the mouth of the river, and here she came very near meeting with a se rious accident in going through the locks and around the dam, which extends across the liver. She bad great dim cully in opening tho locks, and when through the last one she encountered the strong cuirent running over the dam. In attempting to proceed and stem it, she got some what across the stream, which carried her, in spite of her exertions, over the dam into the stream In-low. The fall was not great, as the dam had been broken by recent floods, and lortunately she went safely over the breach, with no dnmage except to her aft guards, which strnc k some of the Umbers of the dam in the descent Alter landing safely below the dam, her commander came to the conclusion not to try it again; and, therefore, lor the trip, made Meek's Mill the head of steamboat navigation on the Demoines.

Dear Sir:? 1 have always thought that it would be a great convenience tor the public, if omnibusses were running on Sunday, say, even for an hour or two in the mornings arid afternoons; as the poor man who lives far from his place of worship, arid can not afford to drive his carriage, must leave all his younger branches of family at home, which he is compelled to do in bad weather. Aga'n, it he re sides far Ironi the Battery, he must be denied (hut walk on the only day which he has tree from toil. Now, is the rich man only to enjoy those privileges in this free country of ours"? which in those much talked of oppressed European lands, are within the reach of the poor as well as the rich. They used to run on Sunday. Does the law now forbid it, or can religion object to it. I do not see on what ground it would. Many Citizens.
