Dm steamship United Btutes, from Aspinwall on the 18th inst., ban arrived at the Balixe, after a passage of -four days and a half, and will reach this city about 9 o'clock this evening. She brings California news to the 1st inst a fortnight later than previous advices ? brought down to Panama by the steamship John L. Stephens. The steamship Ohio was at Aspinwall, and would sail Tor New York on the 20th inst., with about $1,000,000 in treasure, 200 passengers, and the California mails of the - Jet March. The California news presents no features of importance, local topic* occupying mostly the public attention. The acconnts from Walker's Sonora expedition are to the 16th February. The steamship Columbia and the United States sloop of war Portsmouth, arrived at Eeme nada on the 14th. Walker had spiked his guns and started for St. Tomas, with a force of one hundred and forty men and one field piece, tearing behind six or seven sick and wounded Many of his followers had deserted, and those remaining were quite despondent, having abandoned all hopes of ?uccfas. The San Francisco markets continued excessively de pressed and stagnant. Superfine Gallego and Haxall flour was at $8 50 a $9. Clear pork sold at $19; and mess at $16. The mining accounts are exceedingly favorable. Owing to copious rains, large quantities of gold had been dug ? - more than for many previous months ? and the miners appear to be all prospering. Among the passengers from California is Thomas F Meagher. FROM PANAMA. An Indian from the interior had come into Panama, and ?tated that Lieut. Strain's surveying party had been killed by wild beasts. The story was not believed, it ?Mag supposed that the party had been killed by the Jndiaos. SHIPPING INTELLIGENCE.

ADDITIONAL CONCERNING THE SONORA FILIBUSTERS. A despatch to the Philadelphia Bulletin sayB:? President Walker broke up his camp at Enconada on the lltb of February. He marched to the southward Kith 15i> men, leaving behind a large number of aiok and "wmnded. The force of 300 men sent by the government of k'exico to oppose him, were within ninety miles of Waller and his party. It was the general impression that the Mexican troops would be defeated by Walker and bis men. Col. Watkins and Capt. Davidson had been arrested at Sen Francisco, charged with being treasonably con nected with Walker, and were held to bail in the Bum of $10,000 each. Warrants have been issued against Major Baird,' who "is also charged with treason. Intern ting from Mexico. END or THE ACAFULCO REVOLUTION ? ALVAREZ DE SERTED? -INDIAN RAVAGES ? GREAT BATTLE- ?

Ijuqfe crowds thronged the streets from an early hour, and at times It was difficult to suppress disorder. About tour hundred persons were assembled within the jail yard 'o witness the execution. During the entire night and this morning the prisoner ?a* visited br the clergy and joined with them in prayer. At one o'erack tills afternoon the Sheriff informed the prisoner that the time had arrived, and the executioner, a disguised stranger, knocked off bis irons and pinioned bis arms. The blieriff tlien escorted him to the place of - lecuthm. The prisoner stepped forward and thanked the Sheriff loT tits kindness, begging that he would not be the exe < uti<.nerr He then read a dying declaration, reviewing ibe proceedings of the court which convicted him, and d-nying premeditated murder.

He felt confident of the mercy and forgiveness .irgiver I God. The clergyman then offered up prayer, the prisoner ' joining audibly. rThe hangman proceeded to adjust the rope, when the prisoner requested a prayer from the sheriff, which was at once acceded to. Jewell then commenced praying, during which the sheriff gave the signal, the hangman touched the lever, and the unfortunate mnn swung In the air, his neck be ing broken immediately.

BRBCKENRIDGE AND CUTTING ? THE NEBRAS KA WAR. Mr. Breckenridge's speech and the Union article this morning against Mr. Cutting, are generally regarded as an administration movement to try and drive off the New York " hards," and force them into a false position as regards the Nebraska bill. The fact that such a course would probably defeat the bill, only shows that the ad ministration at heart deaire its death. Mr. Cutting, it is said, will reply whan opportunity offers, and tear off the mask from the " soft" supporters of the bill, and show how hypocritical is the conduct of the peculiar friends of the Cabinet in this connection. GEORGE LAW'S OLD MUSKETS. The statement that George Sandera has effected a aale of George Law's muskets is not true. A partial disposi tion has been effected, but not through the aid of Mr. Sanders, nor in the direction indicated in tbe foolish story which has been telegraphed from here. TRIAL OF CAPTAIN 8HAUMBURO?

Mr. Mason, (dem.) of Va., asked unanimous consent to make a motion to proceed to consider executive business. He felt it to be his duty to make the motion. Mr. Huntbr, (dem.) of Va., said the Deficiency bill was now ready for consideration. If the Senate would sit to morrow, that bill could be considered without interfering with private bills or the treaty. Mr. Prait, (whig) of Md., objected to Mr. Mason's mo tion, in order that tbe private calendar might be taken np. PRIVATE CALENDAR TAKEN UP ? COMPSNSATION FOR LOS8BS IN TUB WAR OF 1812.

The Senate bill, extending the warehousing system by establishing private bonded warehouses, was amended and passed. extension of patents. The Rouse then took up the Senate bilHor the relief of George Bishop and the legal representatives of John Ar nold, deceased, to extend for fourtoen years the patent for making cloth without spinning, and weaving the raw materials. Mr. Hlix, (whig,) of Kentucky, advocated the passage of the bill, the Committee on Patents having made a fa vorable report upon the subject. Messrs. Cungman, (dem.) of North Carolina, and Jonm, (deno.)of Tenn., opposed the bill. Mr. Hill contended that the manufacturers, instead of proofing, have actually lost by the invention, as only un til recently the machinery has been perfected. By this invention Ihe value of such cloth as has already been pro duced lias been considerably reduced in price. Mr. Ci inuman moved to lay the billon the table, but the motion did not prevail. The bill was flnully passed, l>y yeas 107, nays 53. The House then went into Committee of the Whole, and took up the indian appropriation ?n.t.. During the debates wliich ensued on certain questions, Mr. Pkckham, (dem.) of N. Y., said the gentleman j from South Carolina (Mr. Orr) yesterday accused us of perpetrating gross outrages and wrongs on the Indiana; that we have despoiled the Indians, not only in the Ter ritories, but in the original States, and driven them from their homes and improvements. Now, he (Mr. Feckham) did not so understand the history of the case. This charge, coming from such a high source, is calculated to Sroduce an injurious clTect on our character abroad, lis belief was tliat the action of our government towards the sons of thefore>t would compare favorably with that of any other government on earth, at loast for half a ? century. We have endeavored to Christianize and civilize, and otherwise improve theii social (Condition. He did not believe it necessary, as a matter of propriety, to indulge in such a course of remarks. Ho believed every man here was inclined to do RJid deal lib erally and kindly toward* those people. ^r' . ? of S.

Was this right and fair ? Mr. Pxtkham ? Did not the gentleman say the Indian* who have changed their location did so with their own consent? Was there a single instance of wrong com mitted on the Indians by the white-! there? Mr. Orm replied? The (>o\ tmor of Oregon and the Indian agents have made promises of pay to the Indians for the surrender of their lands, but which have not been re deemed. There w ere treaties, too, which the Senate have refused to ratify. aii. I'X.'kuam inquired whether the gentleman knew thev were rejected. ifr. Orr replied ? They have been laying on the table of the Senate for the last iwo years. Various amendments were adopted, including some for j holding treaties with the Indians of Oregon, Utah, New , Mexico and Washington, und lor the grand council with < the Hlnclifeet and oilier wild tribes.

The discussion of a bill providing for letting out by contract three sections of the Erie Canal to be kept In repair occupied most of morning session of the Senate. The expense of keeping the canals in repair ? in condition for navigation ? la increasing in such an alarming manner that the present authorities are determined to change the method, by having the work done hereafter by contract. The present bill is only intended an an experiment. If it falls, then the system of eontracts will be abandoned ; if successful, then all the canals will be placed in the hands of Contractors, for the purpose of being placed in a navigable position during the summer season. Senator Whitney has introduced this:? An act far the appointment of Commiuionert of Recordt for Ike city of New York. ....

At the afternoon session of the nouw yesterday, Mr. Cummin^ reported complete a V Prohibiting the run ning of locomotives on the Hudson K. Vt'r Railroad below 126th street in the city of New York. This U ? matter of considerable Imjiortance both to the con-'pauy and U? the ineny thousands of passengers who are dail* con Teyed over the road. The police bill was again discussed in the afternoon. The city delegation disagreed as to the propriety of elect ing the Chief of Police, though there appeared a decided disposition among the majority to dispense with the ser vices of Mr. Mattell at the earliest practicable period. Mr. Barrow finally hit the nail on the head, by offering the following as a substitute for the entire bill : ? Section 1. The Chief of Police in the city and county of New York shall be appointed by the Mayor of said city, by and with the Board of Commissioners, consisting of the Mayor. Recorder and City Jndge, and shall hold Ma office during the pleasure of the Mayor. Sec. 2. In rase a vacancy shall occur In tbe nffice of Chief of Police, by reason of death, resignation or otherwise, the Mayor shall (111 the vacancy until a successor shall be appointed. All members of the police ezoept the said Chief or Police shall hold their offices during good behavior. Sec. 5. This act shall take effect immediately. There was a little aquirming by Mr. Conkling and Mr. Leigh in opposition. Mr. M'Gulre heartily supported the proposition offered by Mr. Barrow in a stroug and convincing speech, declaring, as his opinlont that the citizens of New York would be perfectly satisfied with such a bill. After this gentleman had concluded his re marks, the nhove was substituted with great unanimity. In this sliapo the bill will likely he adopted by both branches of the Legislature. Bo the friends of the Chief will please take notice and early action if they wish to retain him in office. Mr. Barrow introduced a hill in the House incorporat ing omnibus companies. The capital stock is to be one t .cusand dollars per mile, with liberty to increase to any o tent, and to run any distance. It is a very long bill, and drawn up with a perfect disregard to small stago owners. It wants looking Into. 1 he long talked of anti-Nebraska meeting was held In the hall of the capitol last evening.

The Committee on Conference on the Temperance bill reported that they had agreed on December for the bill to go into effect; after which a recess was taken. In the afternoon the debate on the Temperance bill was resumed. Mr. Williams advocated securing the bill at all ovents, as also did Mr. Bishop. Mr. /.. Clark said the majority dare not let the law go Into effect before the election. Mr. Hai>ky believed political considerations alone led to the adoption of December. Mr. Bishop depicted the scene which would take plaee when the Senator from the Sixth district should go homo and meet the triumphant procession which awaited him. He spoke in defence of the bill, and believed that the common sense of the State would decide that eighteen days after tbe adjournment was too early to put the law in force.

FOB THE NEW YORK HERALD. To My Couktsymkk at Home and Abroad: Iu the absence of any instruction* from the Oepat't- , ; mint, either for or against my addressing the public ' upon such matters as I might think of interest to the j people, 1 selected the N?w York IIkkald as the medium at communication. Without any remonstrance from the Department, or any Indication of disapproval from the administration in any form, I oontinued to write. The papers generally agree in these letters being the cause of my rejection. A correspondent of the Hkrau>, however, gives, as addi tional cause, that a Senator charged me, before the Se nate, with having made an attack in the Democratic Re view on the wife of a distinguished politician. The only instance at all in which a lady has been alluded to poli tically in the Review was the following, which is, there fore, I suppose, the case referred to; and, before dixcusH ing my letters to the Hjkald, I will dispose of it : ? DEMOCRATIC REVIEW. The Democratic Review of 1852 set itself decidedly, a. among other pernicious heresies, against all disorg mixing pretensions of what are misnamed women's rights, and against the ill-judged intrusion of women in public af fairs. In a biography of Lynn Boyd, Speaker of the House of Representatives, written by Judge Thomp nn, then member of Congress from the Wheeling district, Va., for the purpose of exhibiting Mr. Boyd's pretensions to the Presidency, some relationship between his ancestors and Robert Burns, and several similar arguments, ate ad vanc<x\. apiong whirh am placed the merits of Mr. Boyd's wift\ Tfee F.tiiew of MorcU, in oriUqijfiBg this ridiculous memoir, merely quotw a 'o'ntence of the b'ograpHv, I (wbiclj U ""'elf the delinquent in bringing the lady's I name unbecomingly before the public,) and laugtis al Ihe ' suggestion? not the lady, whose merits are not in any wise to ? an<* *ke idea of advocating a man as a Residential candidal# 0ft the ground that his wile is a suitable person for the White House. Without touching ? wtuf farther on the impropriety of such an introduction in a political campaign paper, I will remark, in pasjing, that the citizens of the United States have always happi ly had a right to look with pride and respect to the wives of our Presidents, and that it would be the first time it any lady should now reach that high position wanting in the qualities which command the love and admiration of mankind. The estimable woman is in our coun try the rule, the contrary the exception. The pages of the Review, under my direction, may be safely offered to scrutiny against the charge of the slightest indecorum towards any lady. If, however, woman shoiAd elect for herself to enter the political arena, I am very far from admitting that her tacties would not become a legitimate subject of discussion. In common discretion this matter should have re mained among the past things of a political contest. But it seems that the same diseased judgment whloh MMppt ed Mr. Boyd's aspiring and ill advised biograjl^fhas seen fit to bring the subject prominently before the pub lic in this absurd manner. As Mr. Boyd is evidently in capable of appreciating the generosity with which I have acted in his case, I will now let the public see bow excep tionable was the conduct of himself and friends. . About the time of the last Presidential canvass, the Washington city campaign biographies, advancing all sorts of pretensions to the Presidency, had become such a serious evil as needed a decided check. Heroes were manufactured out of paper and ink, with such astound ing rapidity, and of gucli magnificent proportions, that it was impossible for the people to distinguish between the real merit and the fictitious. Against these "Lives" the Hetieu> stood forth as a firm and severe exeeutloner. The Senator who is reported as bringing this matter before the Senate to kill my nomination may possibly (it is a mere guess ? 1 have no knowledge on the subject) be himself somewhat sensitive on the biographical score, as numerous carefully prepared ambitious memoirs became "untimely leave*" lu the "biting breath" of the M e view. The mails, I have no doubt, were relieved some hundreds of ton.-i by its action. I put such a brand upon the practice that the authors of these publications were glad to convcrt them into fuel before they should be handled like those which had already appeared. Of the biography in question I will now, for the first time, give a brief historv:? After the celebrated January number of the Reriew made its appearance, end when the object of the Re view ? that of uniting the democratic party, by putting aside all the prominent candidates who had not strength enough, as I believed, under the then existing sectional stripes, to cement the party, and to bring forward * new man ? was perfectly well un derstood, Judge Thompson wrote a letter to the Reriew, approving its course and admiring its ability, stating that he and his friends had a candidate to present who ex actly tilled the description in the Rerie w of the man re quired by the time; and this was no lens a person than the distinguished Speaker of the House of Repre sentatives ? Lynn Boyd. The Judge said that he had prepared a biography of that gentleman, which he was very anxious to have appear in the March number, aecompaniod by the best possible en graving. for which the Review could stipulate its own price. It was not then known that I had any connection with the Heriew, or perhaps this letter would never have been written. 1 directed the publisher to answer Judgo Thompson politely that the pages of the Review were not open to purchase ? that we selected our own subjects, and prepared the notices ourselves. Upon this ignominious failure with the Reriew, the bio graphy afterwards found a more convenient vehicle in the column* of the Richmond Enquirer. I let it pass till I found the counlry was about to be flooded with the re markable deeds of this very astute statesman, when, without exposure of the application to the Review, I merely caused the narrative to be touched with well de served caustic. There was, however, no mention of Mrs. Bovd; and it was an unmanly thing in Mr. Boyd to have his" wife's P8B1? brought Wore the Sepaty' to excite feeling against the Domination of a purely political op ponent. In finishing Mr. Boyd, I will only add that at the very time he wan organizing for himself he allowed himself to be proclaimed in Kentucky as the supporter of Gen. Tlutler, and in l'ennsylvania and elsewhere as the fast friend of Mr. Buchanan. MY LETTERS TO THE HERALD. In accepting this ofllce I did not resign any of my rights or privileges a* an American citizen. 1 entered under obligations to attend to the commercial business of my country at this port, and nothing moro. The con sul has no diplomatic powers, and is not presumed to be even consulted by the minister. I did not, however, write os con- ul ; my lettors were not even dated at the consulate. It is said, however, that I should not write at all from this great metropolis, no odds how Important or valuable the information. But I did write ? and, with out contrary instructions from the Department, shall con tinue to write, as long as I may be here, such items as I , shall judge of consequence to Americans. I call upon the II Kfui n to republish my letters, and 1 challenge Senators to point out anything objectionable In them. What 1 had to communicate was not of such a charac ter as is called for In a despatch to the Department, hut such an I judged to be of sufficient importance to be In teresting to the people at large. I have not acted upon ths centralizing policy of send ing everything to Washington and nothing to the people. 1 frit It to he my duty, as consul, to constantly report such facts to the people as I might tldnk important to their interests. And in these days of ocean steamers and telegraphic wires, nothing is of consequence unless promptly published.

Kownth's Address to the Ckrsaaai In the United 8tates? Bonos, March 34, 1864. Kossuth has written a letter deprecating the recall of Mr Panders, late U. 8. Consul in London, which will appear in the Cimmomoealtk of to-morrow morning. It is ap. parent ly intended to operate politically upon the German population. The letter bears date London, March 3, 1864, and commenoe* thus:? , The last steamer from New York brought us the morti fying news that the Senate of the United States had not confirmed the nomination of Mr. George N. Banders, as Consul of the United States for London. Knowing wtU the influential part which Mr. Saunders bore at UNI last Presidential election, in the brilliant triumnlrof the democratic party, and havitw every day amt% oppor tunities of seeing the seel and energy which MrVtamWs j displays in guarding and promoting the oonnntfcfel U tercsfs of the United 8ta ei, and hariug likew'is* frs qnently wit ne.**ed both the satisfaction and the confi dence ? hicli lie has found with his countrymen i^olng business her?, and the general resjwrt which he .Ha * already succeeded in gaining, the above mentioned ac tion oil tlie part of tne Senate, by its seeming incon sistency and groundlessness. naturally excited the utmost astonishment amongst us Yet I am too well accus tomed to respcct the principle of nun-intervention with the internal affair* of another country to peyjnit myself to make the least remark on that part of this deplorable action which solely relate* to the internal politics of the United Stated. The matter has. however, a much wider bearing. It extend* it* in fluence in?4> the field of our owu most sacred interests. I mean the freedom of the oppressed nations of Europe, and the future of republican principles on this continent. Kossuth then praises Mr. Sanders' political aud social characteristics, in high terms, and assumes that the despots of Europe will take his recall as a proof that they have nothing to fear from the government of America, ''and that we, on the contrary, have nothing to hope from tt."

Bknnktt, Emj. , Editor or rac Hjuuld, N?w York Crrr : ? I have read an article in your paper, about the late Nathan Preston. You are in error in stating that he died in Litchfield. He died in this town, at Marshall's Hotel He died very suddenly, occasioned by bursting a blood vessel, although he had been ailing for several years, and was besides quite an old man. Mr. Preston has al ways been independent, and lived upon his money. He used to reside at Hartford, but for some years had lived la this town. He was an old bachelor, very quiet and economical la hi? habits, and he is generally supposed to have left a large quantity of real estate, bonds, ! mortgages, stocks and notes, valued at 9150,000 so I to which Joseph A. Scoville of yot?r city , Is the j $200,0""; only legal lieir now living. . nne I pisname? that of Ncttliaa Preston? was a ? i 4nd was at&fetaM by the family from their teritorial possessions in Miu Itftftian, in the time of Malcolm, King of the Scots. The first upon record is Leolphu* de Preston, who lived in the time of William the Lion, about 1040. His grand-son was Sir William de Preston, who was one of the Scottish nobles summoned to Ber wick by Edward the First, in the competition for' the crown of Scotland, between Bruce and Baliol, it having j been submitted to Edward for decision. After the death of King Alexander in. in 1201, this Sir William was succeeded by his son, Nicol de Preston, one of the Scot, tish Barons who swore fealty to King Edward T. He died in the beginning of the reign of David II. of Scot land, son of Robert Bruce, and was succeeded by his son, Sir Lawrence de Preston, who was succeed ed by Richard de Preston, who was seated at Pres ton Richard In Westmoreland, in the time of Henry II, Sir Richard de Preston, the fifth in descent from the above Richard, represented the county of West/norelaqd in Par liament in seventeen Edward in. His sou. Sir Richard, I was Knight of the Shire for Westmoreland in the same reign, and in the same year ( 1368) obtained a license j te impark five hundred acres. His heir was Sir John de 1 Preston, of Preston Richard, and Preston Patrick was a member of Parliament for Westmoreland in the 30th, j 39th and 46th years of Edward III. He left John, who was a Judge of the Court of Common Pleas in the reign ! of Henry IV. and VI., agd retired in consequence of his I great age in 1427. He left John, a clergyman. His heir ! was Rirhui d. His son was William Robert Preston, In i If) 03 His son, (Jeorge Preston, was created a Baron of j Nova Scotia in 1627. His son William married a daughter j of Sir James Saunders, and he lived in the reigns of Charles I. and II. His son William came to America in , 1036. He came to Massachusetts with Mary his wife, i Thence he removed to, and settled in. New Haven, Conn., : Vliere he signed the fundamental agreement of the 4th of j January, 1630. He (assessed at his death real estate in Yorkshire, England, which he inherited from his father. He luid two sous, twins, born in New Haven in 1643; one | was named Hackaliali and the other Kliasnph. Iliinkallah 1 settled in Woodbury in 1681. Hackaliah married Emma j Fnnchlld, April 20, 1676. He left a son, the Honorablu j William, who in 1706 married Martha, daughter of John j Judson. He died in 1754. He left a son. named Seth. who was born November 24, 1718. Seth married Eliza beth, a daughter of Lieut. Joseph Judsou. ile left ason. named Nathan, who was born April 20, 1766. He vr a< Judge of Probate from May. 1795, to May, 1805. Septem ber 28, 1783, this Nathan Preston married Annence Prin dle, and the foBowing are the issue of that marriage: ? Polly, born Nov. lS, 1783 ; died March 18, 1814 ? uo is ?ue. Nancy, born Jan. 16, 1785; died April 8, 1819? no issue. Nathan, born Oct., 1789, and who died recently, was never married. Sylvia, born Oct. 1, 1786, married David Hitchcock, of New- York, She died in May. 1827, but left a daughter, J ho married James Hoyt. She died, louring two chil ren. Caroline, born Feb. 27, 1788. married Joseph Seoviile Oct. 10, 1813. She died Sept. 30, 1837, leaving a son, Jo seph Alfred, who resides in New York. As a legal matter of fact, the children of the two sisters of Mr. Preston are his nearest blood relatives; but the father of the last Nathan Preston married a second time. His second wife was Sully, widow of Hnv. Phil. Perry. At the time of their marriage she had three children, who were adopted by tho husband. One was Charles B. Perry ; Henry Perry, who was a colonel in Miner's expedition, and wns killed by the Spaniards in 1817; Julia, who mar ried John P. Marshall in 1812, nnd had four children Henry, Frederick, Julia and Walter. Nathan Preston had by his second wife William Preston, born Aug. 16, 1801, who is an Episcopal clergyman ut Columbus Ohio, anil is a half brother of the Nathan Preston recently deceased. It was generally supposed here that the Marshall family would inherit the property of Mr. Preston, as he made his home with them, and had discarded his nephew alto (jether, owing to having lost a considerable amount of money by Jiim some years ago, and his intemperate, dis sipated habits. Lewis Judd, of this town, is an adminis trator of the late Mr. Preston: but a* ho made no will, the property of course will go to the legal heirs, who are his sister's children or grandchildren. I don't know that you will publish this letter from a iilaee so little known as our quiet village; but, although it is small, it has produced a good many great men in its day. We have had a book recen'Iv published, called "lotheren's History of Ancient Woodbury." Our town is not much known to strangers. There have been four I'nited States Senators of one name from this town ? Perry Smith, Truman Smith, Nathaniel Smith, and Na thy Smith ? who have represented Connecticut in Con gress. The town is situutcd in a beautiful valley, and contains about two thousand people, about half and half, politically, democrats and whigs. There are two Presby terian meetinghouses, one Episcopal church, and one Methodist. The Presbyterians are mostly whigs, and the Kplscopals and Methodists are democrats. There are two graveyards in the town : one is a very old one ; it has tombstones in it of all the Prestons named in my let tor, going back to 1636. The oldest tombstones were im ported from England ? some the common red stone of the neighborhood, and the modern ones are of marble, which came from New Preston, a village adjoining this old town. The old Preston mansion Is situated in the ' Hollow," as it is called. It la in a very dilapidated con dition, none of tin- family having lived in it for some thirty years. I must not close without confessing my indebtedness for the history of the Preston family to the work called Ancient Woodbury, wlrieh Mr. W Co'tlieren, of this town, has recently Issued at u heavy losa to himself, an 1 which should te in the hands of every person who cm lay claim to being of the good old ancient Woodbury s'ock.

The reformers, however, dM not keep their promise; and after waiting in rain foraa audience, our reporters concluded to leave, satisfied that they, at least, had performed tlieir duty to the pnblie. There was, in fact, not the slightest Indication that a meeting would be held; the temporary platform had bees removed, and the only reformers in (lie neighborhood were the Common Council, who, it is to be presnmed, were reforming as hard as they could in the City Hall. The probability is that the defeat of the clause in the police bill making the Chief elective, has caused this abrupt and sudden termination of the reform move ment. Obituary. Mr. Jambs Raymond died at his residence, Carmel, Put nam county, New York, on Thursday, 23d inst., at three o'clock in the afternoon. His disease was paralysis.

At an early day he established himself at Delhi. Delaware county, in the practice of the law, where he married the daughter of the distinguished General Root, with whom he was con nected in 'business. As an evidonce that his talents and standing were duly appreciated, he was early commis sioned District Attorney and Brigade Major and Inspector, in both of whieli capacities he acquitted himself with distinguished ability and success. He was elected to Congress in the fall of 1826, while yet a young man. He was appoints Assistant Postmaster (ii'noral on the ac cession of General Jackson to the Presidency in 1820. To his skill, judgment, and perseverance the Post Office Department owes much of Its success during the last twenty five years.

On President Pierce couiing into office, he yielded to the urgent request of friends, and consented to resume hie duties of First Assistant Postmaster General. His strength was unequal to the labors of the position, and lie soon sank under them. In his intercourse he was easy, frank, and candid. These qualities, added to hie extensive knowledge in matters of business, made him ? most popular public officer.
