Attentions to the daughter in M*jr, 1848 and ?<r?
?u?h in *11 respects as to be regarded of an honorable
character. He continued these visits regularly, every
I two weeks, until tbe following October, The next
t n? she saw him was on tbe 26th of November ioilowing,
when she met him at his mother's. On that
evening he was alone with fcer at his mother's rmi.

which was her home He was in her oompany
on several occasions afler this; two days in December;
the next time he saw her was in the lait of January.
In Deoember, she developed tbe fact to him
that she was In the family way. In January the faot

in March he again visited her; and in the latter part
of April he came to tbe house of Mr. Wyman. and presented
her with a bible, and in June be again visited
ber, and advised with her in reference to her situation,
advising her to get rid of the ohild. Counsel also proposed
to prove promises of marriage, on tbe part of the
defendant. For tbe ruin of the reputation of the
daughter, tbe loss of her servics to tbe mother, who
was entitled to them, the plaintiff claimed damages.
The child is still living.

Tlie Washington Monument.
Washington, Ootober 25, 1848.
To the Editor of ihk Hhiald?
Sir In a communication pub ished in the Herald,
on Sunday last, in relation to the Washington National
Monument, now in the oourse of erection here, I regret
to find that the writer has thrown out au insinuation,
from whioh tbe reader might infer a want of
economy on tbe part of the Bourd of Managers. He
averts that, instead of employing a borne, as is
usually dene, some forty or fifty men man a rope attached
to a small truck and haul away." This is not
tbe fact. The stone (blue gneiss) is landed on a wharf
about one hundred and flt'ty yards from the foundation
of the monument, and Is brought up to the building
by a stone wagon drawn by four hordes, the stones
weighing from two to eight ton?each. After thestone
is deposited, some half a dozen laborers draw it up on
a truck to the place where it in to be laid, (about eight
feet high) because it cannot, at present be done in
any other way, Instead of forty or fifty laborers, there
are not mora than thirty employed on the monument;
the rest are matons and other workmen, who are occupied
industriously and skilfully, in laying the
foundation, which is admitted by all who see it, to be
the finest and most substantial specimen of masonry
in this country. As the structure advances, machinery
Will be obtaintdto facilitate the work, and render the
expense as littlesf possible.
iLThe Board of Managers, who have devoted thirteen
years of their lives to the accomplishment of aa object
which is intended to remove the stigma of ingratitude
from the eharaoter of their country, are. of
course, too much interested in its completion to expend
the money they may obtain, unnecessarily or
extravagantly. The work, when completed, will surpam
every other mouument in the world, and do honor
to the patriotic feelings of the American people, by
whom it will be erected.
The foundation is eighty one feet square, which
will be narrowed to sixty" feet, at an elevation of
twenty-seven feet, all of solid masonry?at this elevation
the great obelisk (five hundred f?et high) will
start. The walls will be fifteen feet thiok at the base,
with|an opening in the centre, of twenty-five feet, to
the top. The material, to far, has been obtained on
the most reasonable terms and the whole monthly expenditure
for labor does not exceed $1,340. a striking
evidence that the most rigid economy it observed by
the Board of Managers, in the erection of this magnificent
and stupendous structure. This worki*, morennrlfr

The general anxiety throughout the United States,
to ascertain, at the earliest practicable moment, the
remits of the Presidential election, induces the subBor
b' r to re ,u?sl the telegrapher* on the various lines
within the Atlantic. Lake and Mississippi Range, to
keep their offices open at all hours of night, as well m
tiny, for the reception and transmission of despatches,
and for the correction of any errors, until tie returns
are correctly transmitted between all the States that
are connected by these lines, viz : Pennsylvania. New
York, Ohio, Maryland. V rginia, Kin'.ucky, Michigan,
Indiana, Illinois. Missouri, Iowa, Tennessee, Alabama,
Mississippi, and Louisiana.
&The exemplary manner in which the telegraphers
generally have complied with public expectation oa
such occasions. renders it needless to add more than a
request that extreme care be token to avoid error, by
requiiing that all despatches offered for transmission
shall be written very plainly, and with numbers in
words instead of figures.
Of course, no telegrapher, and no officer or other
person connected with any telegraph company, will
transmit any despatches that are not signed with a
proper name; but, as an additi -nal precaution, it is
suggested that the residence of the writer be also ad lea
to the despatch.
The reporters for the newspapers, at the various telegraph
stations, have it in thoir power largely to aid in
these objects; and their co-operation is respectfully
* invited, with the assurance that every thing which
cnn consistently be done, will be done to promote their
convenience in disseminating correct^ and early intelligence
respecting the Presidential election.

Sunday, Oct. ?!)?(! P. M.
The stock market, during the week just closed, has
experienced considerable fluctuations, and at on# time
a perfect panic bad seized upon speculators. The effect
was not, however, ao disastrous as it would have
J>pen bad prices been more Inflated. The decline produced
by this alarm tmong holders of fancies has
Bince bo en pattially recovered, and the market has
again settled down into the usual quiet state; prices will
gradually recover previous points, and dullness and
Inactivity again be the order of the day, for perhaps
months to come. It is our impression, that the money
market will steadily saften. until capital becomes a
i complete drug. The demand Is already much less than
It was sixty or ninety days sinoe, and it is almost
daily decreasing. The steady depredation in prices,
for all kinds of property, has alarmed operators of al'
binds, and no one ventures upon transactions to nnv
extent. The most rcduct d range of prices falls to
tempt capitalists to chenge money into property, and
there seems to be a rapidly growing disposition among

Pone, and there in no health in commercial affair*.
Money in almost useless in (ireat Britain, and its abun.
dance hail reduced Its value to the lowest point, and
before the lapse of many month* we shall, without
doubt, realise the same state of things in this country.
It is true that the same sum of money will purchase
more cotton, more corn, more produce, and merchandise
of any kind, and a greater quantity of stook*,
than at any previous period within the past five years ;
but that is nothing when there is no market tor these
article*, and lho*e who purohase have to hold them
ft long tine before an advance can be realised, There
appear* to be a lull In all commercial enterprise, and we
see nothing in the prospective calculated to create a demand
of any importance for our produot*, or to give
any stimulus to prloea. The future Is filled with apprehension,
and at present there l? nothing but
fear and distrust. If this etate of thing* con.
tinnea long there will be a very Important reduction
In production another year, and It
will only be by chceklng the supply of all the nece?*ailei
of life that price* will recorcr their former levol.
Id former times, reduoed value of the material ??created

the care bow. Cotton never *ai no low as it i? Pre"
sent, and we see no indications of increased conau T"
tion. Stock securities of every description never wer?*
eo much reduced as at present, and there is no disposition
to purchase them for investment. It is a moat
unoatural state of affairs, and it is impopsiVle to tell
when it will end, and what will be the result.
The whole world ia filled with all the elementa Of
*realth and prosperity. The raw material for food and
raiment never waa more abundant than th's scfcion,
and (*tMl there ia no disposition among speculators to
operate. There ia no apirit among thia important olais
of dealers. and the eourage usually exhibited by them
has completely evaporated ; the transactions made
are literally from hand to mouth. M anufaeturera hare
for a long time bee n heavy losers on their fabrioa, and
are likely to be so (or a long time to ceme Produoera of
breadstuffs have been but moderately remunerated for
their toll, and have not fonnd markets for their aurplua
supplies. Cotton planters huve been compelled
to make enormous aaeriQoea on that ataple, and many
must have beoome involved in difficulties that will
take years of high prises to remove. All these things
have, however, happened many times before, without
producing an iota of ao much distress among all
classes?without deranging, to such an extent, the
commercial aHair.N of the world?without creating such
an utter prostration of public and private credit, suoh
a complete destruction of confidence, and suoh a uni"
veraal despondency and annihilation of every species
of enterprise. It would be difficult to account, aatisfaotorily,
for such a condition of afUira, and equally
difficult to point out a remedy. We know that the
cause does not exist within ourselves, but ia entirely
of a foreign nature. There is nothing in our ewn
commercial or financial systems giving rise to, or giv.
ing strength to such a state of things, and the remedy
cannot be found in any changes in these aystems. On
the contrary, it is attributed almost entirely t? the
stringency of our financial system, that we are not more
hopelessly involved in theae difficulties. Merchants, no
doubt, at first felt restricted in their operations by the
existence of the Independent Treasury Aot; the banks'
no doubt, were comptueu 10 contract meir credits by
the steady demand oreated by that act for speoie, and
this they considered sufficient cause for complaint
and opposition , but where would one-half of the mer
hunts and the banks have been, at this moment, had
t not been for the check placod upon them by tha*
act, as imperfoct as it is, and as loosely as its provisions
have been administered ? We will venture to say tha1
they would not have been, at this moment, in existence
The revulsion which commenoed In England, and
spread over the commercial world, would have found
them so much expanded in their operations, that they
would have found it impossible to have sustained themselves,
and we should have had as many bankruptcies to
record as in 1837, or as occurred in Europe during the
pact year. As it is, we have suffered seriously, and hundreds
of houses, still in existence, have been severe suf
ferers by the numerous failures abroad; many have been
swept of eveiy fraction of their capital, and are strug
gling along, day after day. at enormous sacrifices,uncertain
whether they will be able to weather the point or
not. We must look for a remedy for the difficulties we
are now laboring under, somei\ bere else than in any important
alterations or modifications in our financial or
commercial systems, if we would have permanency in
the improvement required. The evils we are suffer"
ing from originated abroad, and tbe remedy will have
to come irom the same quarter. The bane and the
antidote must originate from the same source.

good ninny of the papers in Philadelphia, Baltimore,

oilier paragraphs from our letters. We have no
objection to ihrs parn graph pilfering, if it ceased
theie; but these depredators also purloin the typographical
nnsinkes which sometimes occur. This
is unfair. As for the news, l?*t it go; but the errorw
of the press belong exclusively to us, and it is ungeaeroiiB
and ungentlemanly to take them too.
During the past few dityn a large amount of
treasury notes have been funded in stock of'47.
A few days since, in adverting ro ttie National
Monument, we stated that there wi>.s apparently a
great waste of lubor ill hauling th< stones on to
the found>ition by man-power, instead of in the
nsttal wiiv, by horses. The monument committee
in New York have w'ltten to tlie committee here,
in consequence, stating that the publication has
done a great deal of injury to the collections,
snd requesting a contradiction or explanation of
the Htatements. We regret extremely to learn
that our paragraph has affected the contributions
to the fund ; but, as we made no comments, and
merely stated a fact, it must be conceeded that it
is |jthe fact itself, and not our remarks, which
caused the Injury. We are glad to learn that a
horse is now used on one side of the work, and as
soon as the castings for the rail-tracks are
finished, horses will be used upon every side;
the reason, it is asserted, men were einnloyed,
b' ing that the castings were incomplete till now.
The work, as we stated in our former letter, 19
I eing proceeded with rapidly, under the superintendence
of Mr. William Dougherty; and competent
judges assert that so tar it contrasts favorably
with any similar undertaking, either in Europe or
this country. The stones, nmnv nf ihem un?mh.
intr at least ten tun?, are embedded in cement,
and lap over one Hnother in such a way as to
firmly bind the whole into a solid mass of masoary.
This, it will be understood, in merely the
foundation of the shaft or column,which is to rise,
touring into the air, five hundred feet from the
enrih. The solid foundation is to be twenty-seven
feet, and is eighty-one feet square at the bottom,
gradually diminishing to flfty-eif?ht feet six inches
si|uare, which will be the base of the column.
The centre of tne column from thence to the top
will be open, the wulls being fifteen feet thick.
It is the intention of the building committee to

prent many delays incidrnt, of course, to the commencement
of a woik of the magnitude, of the one
in question, more particularly when begun in a
litiriy. And we have no doubt that the monument
committee will do all in its power to economically
carry out the intention of the donors.
Still, we shall reel it our duty to watch the progress
of this great national work ; and whenever
we see anything which we believe to be susceptible
of improvement we will franklystate it
A disgraceful scene took place in the Orphan's
Court, yesterday, between two brothprsin-law,
the one a lawyer and the other a doctor.
Charges were bandied b?ek and forth, of "cheating,"
" robbing," iVc., till at length the two brothers-in-law,
very much to the astonishment of hid
honor, the judge, commenced a bout of fisticuffs.
A fat gentleman present, endeavored to quell the
batttle, and received, for his pains, n w? II planted
" hit" from each of the combatants. Thin satisfied
the stout lover of peace, who immediately
vanished, and permitted flie belligerents to fight it
out at their leisure. After several rounds th?
"gentlemen" got tired of their amusement, and
the court adjourned.
It is a difficult matter to decide wlneh party is
most xangune hh to the result in November.
Shillington, the famous periodical man, states,
however, that ever since the results of the Pennt-vlvania
and Ohio elections have become known,
Tnylor almanacs and song books have sold a hundred
per cent better than Cass literature of the

Washington is full of unpublished misdoings.
There is no author here to " do up," in book shape,
the "mysteries and miseries;" and hence there
is a Inatui to be supplied.
Some j ears ago, a gentleman of this city visited
New York. While there, he stepped into a store
to buy f hi i ts; and so captivated was he with the
fair vendeun, who was a widow, with a sweet
young daughter, and whose atheistical views were
in consonance with his own, that he made proposals
ot marriage, and the knot was tied.
They came to Washington; he to be jealous of
her admirers, and she to be admired; and so the
matter continued foryears. In the mean time, the
daughter attained to woman's estate, and was
married : but, becoming dissatisfied with her
partner, they separated; she giving to hiro his
Recently, with more earnestness than ever, the
husband stronglv protested against the visits of
certain gentlemen; but the ladies scorned the interference
in their private affairs, and, like the
thirteen American colonies in 177ti, they, in 1H18,
declared their independence of the sovereign.
Of course, ihey had now to maintain themselves,
and depend upon their own resources.
The West is the great field for enterprise and
honorable livelihood. So, thitherward they directed
their course. The wife and her two sons
(hoys five and nine years of age), and the divorced
daughter, and her infant child (which, she said,
is named General Shields, and is an "adopted"
son) constituted the emigrating party proper.
There was a follower of the camp, however,
known as the protector and the " uncle," a word
about whom will presently be uttered.
The husbard, utmost distracted at the loss of
his two boys, made application to a just'ee of the
peace of this citv, yesterday, with a view to recover
them. Police officers immediately started
in pursuit, on horseback, and the husband accom110

runaways were discovered at Rock Creek, and
near the Ihstrict line. The occupant nf tlie home
in which th**y were sheltered whs informed of the
object of the visit, and he communicated the fact
to the wife of the desert?d spouse. With much
fairness. she consented to give him one child nnd
retain for herse'f the other. The former she deliver*
(I up to an officer, and the latter she s.*nt into
(lie woods, to a hiding place. The second officer,
who had In en watching the progress of events,
disappointed the plan of the fond mother, by seining
the living chattel, and twinging it to the spot
where stood the inmates of the house, and all the
parti s interested, except the daughter and the
" nncle."
Their absence is thus accounted for. The
daughter had been taking a walk in the woods
with the " uncle," and while the officer was returning
with the child, which his mother e-e^yed
to hide, he surprised the promenader*. The "uncle"
immediately took to his heals, lea vine the fair
one alone, and unprotected. It is said that he has
a family in this city, and makes a livelihood by
dealing in musical instruments.
The party, as I have paid, wee all before the
house, minus the daughter and the nnele. Mutual
reproaches between the husband and the wife ent-ued.
The oldest child whs anxious to go home
with his father; the youngest was reluctant, and
preferred the mother It was a serious moment.
Each parent wished to possess the children, caring
nought for the separation of themselves. The spectators
were moved to tears, being conversant
with the circumstances of the scene. The officer*
placed the boys under the care of the father, who
returned to the city with them in the evening ?
The mother, enraged, declared that she would
either obtain them living, or have their bones.
The mother and her daughter, and the " adopted"

are now on their way to the West, there to be forever
separated from the husband, whose rejoicing
over me retention of hi?rhi'rtrcn, counterbalances
by far the regret of his wife's incontinenrv.
