A favorable specimen of aboriginal
eloqaecce is presented io the following
address of Black Hawk to Col. F.ustis,
the officer in command at Fort Mon
roe, who had, by his kindness and at
tention, won the personal friendship
I and respect of the Chief.

you and your children. Farewell!”
In noticing the visit of Black llawk
and his companions to the Navy Yard,
at Norfolk, the Herald observes:
“ They did not appear to be parties
l*rly alruck with any thing they saw,
until they were carried on board the
Delaware 74, where they expressed
their astonishment and delight by their
gestures and exclamations; and Black
; Hawk himself, even more affected at
I the wonders of the noble ship than his
| more youthful companions, asked to be
shown the man who made this “ great
canoe.” that he might take him bv the
hand! In pasting the bow of the Dela
ware, in a barge, on their way back,
the figure-head, which is a representa
tion of a colossal Indian warrior, at
tracted their attention, and elicited
from them the moat extravagant mani
festations of surprise and pleasure. ”
On the arrival of the Chief* at N.
^ ork, as soon as the immense con
course on the Battery and Castle Gar
den ascertained they were on board,
they commenced cheering, and it was
immediately responded to by those in
the numerous steam boats and small
craft plying in the neighborhood. At
thia time Mr. Durant’s balloon was auf
ficiently inflated, and was soon seen
from the upper deck of the boat, float
ing above the walla of (he Castle_
Those natives of the forest had, previ
ous to their arrival, been informed of
what they would witness on reaching
New York, and they could oof, appa
rently,comprehend exactly how a man
could tail in the air. Immediately af
ter the balloon had cleared the wall
°f tha Castle, and Mr. Durant unfurl
ed his flag. Black Hawk was asked
what he thought of the ascension, to
which he instantly replied, “that man
its great brave*’—“Don't think he
will ever get back!”
A* the balloon continued to ascend,
and after it had gone nearly beyond the
view of Black llawk, whose sight is
rather impaired, he exclaimed, “I
think he can go to the heavens, to the
Great Snirit.” When ih» hsllnnn 1...1

maalt IlfHih, the adopted son of Black
Hawk, waa aaked hi* opinion, to which
he replied, M l think he ran see the
Knglith country.” The Prophet waa
alto aaked what he thought of the as
cension; hi a answer was, M Can’t form
any idea, hut think ha can go up to the
cloud* if he choose.”
After tha balloon began to descend,
the steam boat got under way to pro
ceed to the landing, and in passing the
( astle, Black Hawk presented himself
to the assembled multitude, raised his
hat and made a few remarks to this ef
j feet, ** How do you do? Ilow do you

of the '1Mb alt. has this alarming paragraph
respecting the President's health:—
"Tbo President was seriously indisposed
yesterday. Doctor Warren was summoned
) rarly in the morning to attend him, and find- j
ing him with considerable fever, deemed it
advisable to take blood. He was conined to J
ba bed all day, and all communication with)
him was interdicted. We do not learn that i
; he a considered to he in immediate danger,
' but when his advanced age ami enfeebled ,
constitution are taken in stew, there cannot
but be felt an intense anxiety about him.—
Wo were at the Tremont House at a late i
hour, last night; and learned that he conti- j

/Vrfisf •/ OU Irrmiidtt.—From the Boston
, Atlas of the 25tb ult. we Icam that the Dry j
Dock at the Navy Yard in Charlestown, com
menced in June, 1.—.27, and lately finished,
was ope nee. on Monday morning at 5 o'clock,
to receive the frigate Constitution. The ve
teran Isaac Hull had command of the ship, -
and with his speaking trumpet in hand, trod
the deck, as well he might, with a proud spi
rit. On board the frigate were the Vice Pre
sident, the Secretary of the Navy, the Score-'
tary of M ir, lion. Joel It. Poinsett, of South
J Carolina, His Excellency Governor Lincoln,
| Ilia Honor Lieutenant Governor, and many
distinguished strangers, who are now the
' guests of the city. At half past 5, a salute
was tired from a battery in the Yard, and the
gates of the Dock were opened, in about
2.p> minutes the gallant ship was safely lodged
within, and the hundred horse engine imme
diately commenced pumping out the ’.vater,
tha Columbus 74 paying a grand salute to the
occasion with her long 3*2 pounders.
After the entrance of the Constitution into '
the Dock, Com. Hull delivered three canes to !
the Secretary of tlie Navy, made of the ori
ginal timber of the ship, which he stated were
intended for the President, Gov. Lincoln,and
Mr. Poinsett, of South Carolind.
Commodore Hull gave his orders on board
in true sailor-like character. To bis remark
that he was not at home in making speeches,
CoiiitiM>dne^EI}Md replied,—“ No matter, my
friend; make your speech as abort as you
> fight, and all will be satisfied.'*

The prevalence of the cholera in the val

taislcd the works, but notwithstanding tha
obstruction the most cualiy part of the new
line above HarpervFcrry,( 14 utiles in length,
has been completed, bringing 2»> wile
more into use, which were formerly witliou
w ater, »o that by the first of July boats m&<
enter the canal from the bed of the Pototnav
above Ifarpcr»*Feny falls, or from the She
nandoah. in the midst of them. The work!
above tbe fails have proceeded w ith like dili
genre.
The force employed on this part averaged
for tbe 5 weeks preceding the I nth May, 2,TIM
laborers, t>.’»o horses, uiuies, and oaen, and thi
powder employed in blasting rocks, 7,(MM
pounds a week. The entire force on the I'a
nal, for the same penod, was 4,4tiU laborers
1,048 horses, mules, and ovrn, and an avcragi
weekly consumption of 10,000 pounds of gun
powder.
The w ork done since the first of May, 1812
has cost f.>l.r>,2l I h9, of which gTalJIl'J 21
was expended above the Point of Rocks, am

107 35 was expended in the city of Washing
ton, and $21,220 72 at the l.ittle Falls dam*
This excludes cost of superintendence, lam
purchases, condemnations and incidental ex
penset.
The amount necessary to be done be fori
the 1st of October next, in order to fulfil th<
contracts and complete the line of ll>2 mile
of canal ami 15 mile* of still water uaviga
turn, the report states in the following form
dating from the 1st of May last. At that time
there remained to be done,

to transfer the locks above, to a point below
and increase the canal four miles, diminish

thus add $100,000 to the cost of the canal_
These sums ($100,000 and 12,500) added It

estimated expenditures to be made betw een thi
1st May last and the 1st of October next, tc
fulfil the contraet. Nearly the w hole line be
low shepherd*town will be finished by th<
1st of August, and the report anticipates thal
a concentration of all the force on the lint
above that point, would finish it in due time
The amount of expenditures for the y si
ending May 1st ult. was $821,393 74 in the
following proportions: for construe lien, $754,
573 87 ; engineer department, $19,453 30
pay of officers, $0,935 50; land* $27,055 79
besides incidental expense*. A large amount
not included in the above, is retained by eon

The sums required from May first to Oc
tober first, are stated as follows : The esti

The report thus shows a surplus of $299,

to prepare the necessary dams and aqueduct

The estimates for the remaining 75 miles o
the eastern scrtion ol the canal are the nex
general head, preliminary to which the re

KIW VOSK, MU ITtM, 1*3.1.
, .Vy Dear Sir—I liate received your letter
of last evening, requesting me tai state my
j opinion of the powers ol t'ongres.s on the
| subject of slaves and slavery ; and of the ex
; istence of any wish or design, on the part of
! Northern men, to interfere with the secuntv
j l,r regulation of that specie* of property.
My sentiments on this subject, my dear sir.
have been often publicly expressed; but I
can have no objection to repeat the declara
tion o| them, it it he thought by you that
such declaration might,in the smallest degree,
aid the friends of Lnion and tlae Constitution
in the South, in deepening prejudices which
arc so industriously fostered, and in quieting
agitations so unnecessarily kept alive.
In my oj inion, the domestic slavery of the
Southern Slates is a subj.-ct within the exclu
sive control of the Ms^es themselves; and
this, I am sure, is the opinion of the whole
North. Congress has no authority to inter
fere in the emancipation of the slaves, or in
the treatment of them in any of the States.
This was so resolved by the llou«e of Itcprc
’ tentative!, when Congress sat in this city in
1on the report of a Committee, consist
ing almost entirely of Northern inendierx;
and I do not know an instance of the expres
sion of a different opinion, in either House of
Congress, since. I cannot »ay that particular
individuals might not possibly be found who
suppose that Congress may possess some pow
er over the subject, but I do not know any
such j>ersons, ai J if there be any I am sure
they are few. The servitude of so great a
portion of the population of the South is, un
doubtedly. regarded at the North, as a great
'evil, moral and political; and the discussions
1 upon it, which have recently taken place in
the Legislatures of several of lira slave hold
: ing Males, have been read with very deep in
terest. But it is regarded, nevertheless, as
an evil, the remedy for which lies with those
Legislatures themselves, tube provided and
applied according to Ikvir own sense of policy
and duty. The imputations which you say.
and say truly, are constantly made against
the North, are in my opinion entirely desti
tute of any just foundation. I have cndca
ij Tofcd to repel litem, to far ;u has been in my
i power, on all proper occasion*, and for a
1 fuller expression of my own opinions, both
!. on live power of Congress, and on the ground
! less chargr* against Northern men, I beg
* leave to .efer you to my remarks in the dc
* bale on Mr. Fool's Resolutions iu 1830.
I am, iny dear sir, with much true regard,
your obedient serv’t,
DAN L WEBSTER.

TIIE WEBSTER DINNER.
I T*‘c dinner to Mr.Webster, on Wednesday,
,1 what, in the language cl truth, might b«
called a brilliant allair. Every thing passed
f'otl well. The company was full t«> overflow
