Mr l)Mn Sir, Genoa, situated at tho head of the Gulf of the same name, is tlio chief port of the Sardinian States. Two extensive piers i afford pood protection to the numerous vessels frequenting tho port. Tho city is built nlmosi entirely on,' a' Bleep side hill forming a crescent, arid i$ seen to the greatest advantage from tho rntrnnnh tn tl.n t,.1,n. 'I'linc, It flMlllv hut ono thorojghfarojthrough tho city, and but two or three others claiming to be called streets. The others are simply passages, whero men and wo men, tnules and handcarts, all crowd together. Wood, coal, stono and brick arc packed about on mules. Tho houses are gcTicrally very well ' built, but being six or seven stories high, with only a narrow alley between them, makes them very dark. The city is u jw erecting, on a small equaro near tlio supposed birth-placo of Christo phor Columbus, a beautiful tnirblo monument to lib memory. It is to bo surmounted with a Vtaluo in marble. I saw at the Municipal Hall an autograph letter in Latin written by Co!um bus in 1 TiO'J, and to which he had subscribed his namo in tho manner fashionable at tho prcecnt day, requiring one to bo learned in tho arts to interpret it Manufacturing in tlio small way is carried on very extensively here, the lower story of nearly every houso being occupied by a shop of some kind. Th people generally seemed to' ho well off, and tho females in partic ular had on air of neatness unusual in a city of that size. Tiey wear no bonnets, but long whitOjgauzo veils over their heads, giving them au extremely neat and tidy appearance. From Genoa a voyage of nine hours by steamor bro't mo to Ieghorn, whero, as I entered tlio lnrbory I .saw several American ships, which really ..,..! m, ......:.. ..,.1 a. though this is a freo port of Tuscany, still tho n 1 ... passengers were not allowed to land until health officer had been on board, examined the list arid counted tho pjssengers and found all well. From the dirty and slovenly appearance of tlio official, I am satisfied tliu passengers ran by far tlio greatest risk from tho contact. Leghorn is located on a plain, with broad and well paved streets, containing n population of Bcvcntyfivo thousand. The houses are mostly built of ii yellowish sand stone, giving them n bright and cheerful appearance. There are but frfr public buildings of any note in the city. Tlio most cxtcnsivo ono I saw was erected as tin asylum for the poor, but government wanting barracks for its troops had turned the poor out to beg ami filled it with soldiers. Since tlio at tempted revolution in 1818, Austria lias filled Tuscany with her troops, having ubout (brty thousand quartered in different places, and the people are prohibited from keeping arms of any kind, Pisa, eight miles in tho interior from Leghorn, is a very old and dirty looking town, but celebrated for its Cathedral and Leaning Tower. Tho Cathedral is a very line old build mg of tho eleventh century. Tho interior is entirely of'marblejand contains many relies of antiquity) its piintiugs, statuary and pillars of jwrphyry are very riclu Tho Leaning Tower is tho.grent wonder of Pisa. It is of a circular form, about thirty-fivo feet in diameter and two hundred in height, and was built fur a hell tower for" tho Cathedral. Tlm.Towor. wl.cvcrytltinE around it, denotes that it lias acquired its pres ent declination of thirteen feet, from tho sinking" of tho ground, and the only wonder is tint it lias stood so long after having onco commenced to fall. Fifty miles in tho interior from l'isa, is Flor; ence, tiio capital of Tuscany, containing a popu lation of ever ono hundred thousand. It is lo cated on a plain on both sides of tho river Amio, having in the distance sloping hills nnd high mountains, covered w ith the vino and olivo. A grove of two or three miles in extent on the banks pf the river below the city, furnishes the most delightful drive imaginable, and the hun dreds of carriages seen thcro every pleasant af ternoon proves that the. people duly appreciate it. Tho buildings aro generally well built of stone, but the streets aro narrow, without side walks ; tho people and carriages all passing a long together. Among tho public buildings worthy of nolo is tho Cathedral, commenced in tho thirteenth century, built of black and white marble, in tho form of a Itin cross. It is -)f0 feet in length by .'130 in breadth, having n sejm rate bell tower forty feet squaro and three hun dred high, ornamented with many statues and much fine carving, and as a whole, much more beautiful than tho Leaning Tower. Tlio I'ittt I'alace, tho residence of tho Grand Duke, ha an imposing appearance ; still there is nothing very beautiful in the architecture, but tho grounds in tho rear aro laid out wjtji much taste, and from V high point in the garden is obtained ono of the best views of tho city. Tho show rooms of the Palace contain little worthy of note, ex cept tho gallery of paintings, but that is coinid- cii:u out. ui uiu tiiun-eei iii i.uropc. J pcro aro a great number of galleries in Florence, but to me, thero seems but little variety. They aro nearly, all copies from each other, i Hundreds of artists go to Florence every year, to com from tlio old masters j they originate nothing new; tliey follow in tho beaten track, painting Madon- nas and the V irgin slid Child for J did not ?oo in all Florence a dozen paintings on uny other than sacred subjects. For myself, I confess I wai tired of going from gallery to gallery and finding nothing now. An American ortist frauk ly.said wo are mere copyists hero. Thero aro better portrait and laudrcape painters in Ameri ca than in Florcnco. Tho samo remarks are ap plicable to statuary.

TJiuJ it was with Grecnough, when lie placed the head of Washington on a body wrapped in a blanket, with sandals on tlio feet and a ecimetar in the hand. To tins remark I want to mako an bonorublo exception, in refer ence to Mr. Powers, the sculptor. Ho is as A mcrican in heart and tout, and relies upon his own talents and ability to delineate character in conformity to tho era ho would represent Ho is at present cngtged on threu works expressly adapted to Auicrica,-a Washington, represent ing him as a private citizen, aAer having resign cd his commission, in 0 dress of his time a genius of America, a beautiful design, aud an at.

It will, bo theliirgest national monument of the kind existi tig Itauch's statuo of Frederick tho Groat, at Berlin, is considerably of less proportions. The Wash ington monmnrnt is a complete circle; oi t this a star with six points is raised, and on this rics 1 tho actual basn to tho equestrian figuo of Am-1 erica's great man. Six eagles surround the . itcps un the circle, and six collossal statues of emi ncnt Americans surround tho pedestal Henry, Lee,' Mason, Marshall, Allen, and'Jctl'erson. Tho whole is on a .gigantic pcile, fmm 'lixtv to srveniy feet high, and is grandly rrpresoi )UM.

Mru EniTiin : In November !&(), tliu ktoc't-h.-.lders wore informed, pages S." and 'JO of th e animal rrport, that "Tho Directnni cnngntu lato tho Stockholders upon the finil comptdian of tho road, and confidently anticipate that the r will find tho affairs of the corporation as present cd in the foregoing reports, fully equal to thoir just expectations. I no past year lias ben onu or great financial embarrassment, nui mo crisis has been triumphantly passed, und the road is now in a condition fully to dcvclopo its rcsour ce, and tn justify the oft repealed predictions nf. its friends." 'f lift road may then bo consider trtt n I'll,' tumplfleu, tijttipittl unit pumJIJr. Tho capital s'ock of tlio company will bo repre sented by 1()U,(J(JU shares aud the bonus amount ing to fee l,t)M si. Since that time, under a special law, I under stand about threo millions of dollars of bonds havo been ifsued, (for what it does not apnonr that we are ever to bo informed,, tho report of tho committee appointed in May last not having yet been made,) bearing such exorbitant interett as to absorb the entire income ot tlio road. lty thogenem! law of the State I understand that a takmjr of over six percent interest for mo ncy loaned, works a forfeiture of principal and interest, which appears to mo just, wlnlr money is civen an artificial vuliio ny uemg tho only lo g-il tender in payment of debts, to keep it of sla bio value. Vet by tlio special law ubovo men tinned tho bon dholders aro receiving seven per cent, for anoul cu or t.i dollars. 1 wo laws so incompatible it appears to me cannot be valid, as tho general law r quires of the pwple what the Bpecial law prevents a compliance with. and lhsv must euner ceaeo to uen law-anunng people or fill to niy tlunr dobts, for after tho publication of tho special law no one who has ready money, will loan for less than can bo got of railrnad cor porations. If it be wrong to loan a shareholder or any othor person at more than ix per cent, it is equally wrong tn loan n corporation for more, unless a sin becomes a virtue in the reidy mon ey capitalist by being licensed by assumed pipit authority to rob tho mass after their hands are ti ed. The special law also crippled the stockhol derby rendering his stock worthless to raiso mo ney upon by pledging it. Those who subscribes! and paid for their shares arc entitle I to the credit and profit for thqir en terpriseit wns by their means tint tho hills wore lowered, tho vallies raided, tho rivers span ned, and tho laku jumped, 'ihcyploned and harrowed the earth and planted tho rails and havo tlin right to tho linnet, but have been sur plautcd by tn filth hour men who will not allow them even to gloan, but gather tho whole them selves. If thero remains a particlo of tho snirit which influenced tlm Champion of tho Rights of Man, whose imatro is in front of tho capital of tho State, tho Verinonters can never quietly submit to such wrongs until they havo at least made an eltort to test the validity ot such a law. A STOCKHOLDER, lloston, Feb. I, 185.T. Wo are not awaro of any " special taw" in ermout such as tho writer of the above alludes to Thero is a general laic, allowing all railroad companies to issua notes or bonds bearing not more- than seven cr cent, interest, to be secured in any manner such companies may choose, and to be p ollcctable at law whether issued under par or not This law was unacted for tho pur post of enabling tho railroad companies in Ver mont tn complete their roids nnd pay their debts, and was certainly deemed necessary for tho crod iters of the roails and for tho public. If the ilockhoUltrs did not like tho law, they had the privilege of providing some other way to pay their debts. It is questionable, to my tho least, whether this ought to be adopted as tlio settled jwlicy iu regard to corporations, and for this rea. son wo publish tho foregoing communication. Jleleasc of a Itumanfrom Slavery. A highly interesting narrative of the abduction and re lease from slavery, of a northern freo colored man, will bo found on the first pige, Threo things aro worthy of notice. Firtt, that freo northern men aro liable to be mado slaves ; and sccoud, that by tho laws ofslavo states, and even of IU District of Columbia, the white man stealer is jieriiiitted to become a witness to do fend his crime, while the freo colored man can not be a witness iu defence of his liberty i henet Impropriety and absolute neeetsity of lain, in Hie fret italts, to present the abduction of freemen The third noteworthy thing is, the readiness of Louisiana magistrates, to tlio extent of their u bility, to restoro the injured to liberty. This it honorable to them, aud cannot but bo gratifying to every good man. Wo aro glad to find, a Kcn tucky c rt indicating the same honorable du position in tho following decision : Decision in a Mie Cast. An interesting slsvo case has just been decided by tho Ken tucky Court of Appeals, involving a question which tho Court declared to bo cntiMy now in a legal point of view. It appears that a Mrs, 'l'f'Rfft owiung a slavo. woman named Clarissa, sent her with n relative of hers, a Mrs. Alexan der, to Philadelphia, in tho year !8iI3, to attend on her whilo the latter was undergoing medical treatment for defcctivo sicht.

The Court of Appeals set Clarissa free, nnd decided that tho condition of freedom follows a person to his or her homo, where it has resulted, as in Clarissa's case, from tho slavo re mainiiiff by tlio direction of un mvlipr. in nrtntti. rr State, lor a longer period than tlio laws of that CONGRESS.

Your friend and correspondent, Asmc Eltois. Wasiii.iotom Citt, Jan. 1, 1000. Mr Dear FnlED: Writing to you as I now ilo, at tlio commencement of tho twentieth cen tury, I am naturally led to speak of the wonder ful changes which liave taken placo within tho last hair of the century just passed. 1 remember very well when mcn were considered the lords of creation, when all the offices of honor and profit were in their hands. Women wcro at that timo hold in subjection, by' their haughty oppressors, and women's right were then almost unknown. Now, thank Heaven! all this is reversed; in stead of lords we havo lailies of creation. Our navies do not now consist of rntn of war they aro nil tromen of wnr. Now, happily, n woman occupies our Presidential chair, w hile our halls of Congress nro filled with a body of intelli gent and influential females from all parts of the c6nntry. Formerly, wo had professional men now wo havo professional women. But without farther preface, let me give you a sketch of Washington, which'Inmat present visiting. Every body is praising the administra tion of Hon. Mrs. Uetsy Jones, who has just as sumed the reins of Government. She has filled her cabinet with some of the most distinguished statcswomen in the country. Where, for instance could she have found n better Secretary of Wnr than Gen. Abigail Chase, of Massachusetts, who covered herself with glory, in our late war with tho Sandwich Islands ? 1 went to tho President's levee, a few eve nings since. Among the crowd who were pres ent, I noticed Hon. .Mrs. Jenkins, the distin guished Senator from tho new State of Patago nia. Tho Russian Minister, Mrs. Orlolf, had on a splendid fur cape, which attracted the atten tion of nil the ladies present. Iwas snrrv not to havo seen the Secretary of State bur she sent word that her baby was sick, and sho couldn't como! I called to seo the Attorney General the other day, and found her husband settinc tho tahln fnr tea, and taking caro of tho children. Ho said his wife was so much occupied with the cares of office, that sho had but little leisure for her family. 1 Ins morninc arrived the sfeamnr A mnrirn Captain Bettv Martin, cnnimnmlnr hnnmnir the latest news from Europe. It seem3 that the queen of Austria has issued a iromandnle, ordering nil tho men in her dominions to shavo Off their whiskers. In consequence of this very reasonable edict nn insurrection took nlaco n. mong the man, which, however, was soon quel led by the offorts of Gen. Polly Kosciusko. 1 heard, last Sunday.nneloqiientsermon, from Rev. Sally Spracue. minister of the flit church in this city. 1 understand it is to be published.

Writing of Vermont reminds us of tho simple tastes and great economy of tho people of that sterling commonwealth. The Governor there is paid $7X0 per annum ; tho Lieutenant Governor 1 a day as President of the Senate; tho State treasury i?J00 a voar; the Secretary of State -ii.; and tho three Judges of tho Supreme Court, who receive tho highett silarics paid, I, :if per annum each.

Certainly, from what wo know of Virginia, wo should not jud"o that our Governor performs six times as much work or does it six times as well as the Vermont Governor. And yet wo pay $5000, and they only $o0. But it may be and, wo pay sometime for the dignity, tho honqr, the glory, the magmfi cencc, and tlio splended abilities of a Governor; and no doubt, w e get the worth of our money for those eminent qualities n.s illustrated in Gov.

Tho Union is informed that ono milling establishment of that city has over 0.000 barrels, another 2:5,000, a third 1C,. 000, m New ork, or now on tho way there und others havo small qualities.

Tobacco in all its uses, smokiug, chewing and snuffing, is so fi thy, loathesome and disgusting, that a boy is playing the foot's part the day he commences to use it It wears gradually, but surely, on tho btiongcst constitution, and many eloquent phillip- i.u.agiuk n u uaiuucaru uom thoso who con stantly use it.
