November Mr Barton is not in the Po
land, but is said to bave engaged his pas
sage in the packet ship to sail on the iirst
cf December.
The Paris papers are lull of speculation
upon an alleged secret treaty between
Russia and the United States, by which,
in contingencies that might happen, the
numerous ships of war of Russia would
be manned by Americans!
Mr. Barton received his passports on
Tuesday, 10th November, and made im
mediate preparations for leaving Paris.—
The French Chambers are to be conven
cd on the 28th December
The Empeior Nicholas had made a
speech at Warsaw, (o the prostrate Poles
—which is spoken of with general execra
tion by all the Paris and London journals
It is characterized as the effusion of a bru
tal and bloody barbarian.— In (he course
ol it he spoke of the French, as a nation
of “ rebels and traitors,” and that, too, in
the presence of the French Consul. The
London Times sees in this outbreak, and
in the inexplicable visit of Ferdinand, to
Vienna, evidence of insanity—which is in
his blood.
The Temps of 21st November, publish
es this story : *• if we are well informed, a
curious incident in the history of the world
is in preparation—it is the union [rappro
chement] of the United States, an iiule
pendent republic, tvitli Russia, governed
by Nicholas ! The Russian navy, so un
skilled, feels the necessity of learning of a
maritime power of the first order, and it
is spoken of, as a thing certain, that a se
cret treaty of alliance between the govern
ments of the United States and Russia
exists, a sort of treaty of union for future
contingencies. We do not quite believe
(his extraordinary intelligence, tint it is
affirmed in the best circles. We cite,
however, in its support, the fact, that Eu
rope lias not paid much attention to the
numerous commercial treaties concluded
between these two countries, respecting
the trade to China and the oorth-of A«i i
—treaties which paved the w’ay for this
political rapprochement.
The Metsager of the 18th says, Mr.
Barton, whose embarcation at Havre bad
been announced, has not yet left Paris.—
He has indeed changed bis residence and
hence the rumor of his departure. It was
said he would embark at Havre directly
for the United States. London papers,
however,imply that he was expected there
England is said to have offered her me
diation, through Lord Granville, her Am
bassador at Paris, for the settlement of
the question between France and us. The
Gazelle of France adds, “ that in thanking
Lord Granville for this offer of mediation,
it was intimated that orders had been gi
ven for the equipment of fifteen ships of
the line and eighteen fiigates.”
The rumoured alliance between Russia
and (he United States, shows how loose
and wild are the political speeulatons of
European journals about us!

THE Zig Zig, or W shaped Steel
Spring Saddles, have received the
general approbation of Saddlers who have
examined the model and the universal ap
,'plause of gentlemen who have used them.
This invention indeed, has been pronoun
ced an unequalled improvement, after the
closest investigation by the most cnmpe
tent judges ; and this too. when it bad to
encounter all the prejudices, which had
been excited against it in consequence of
the failure of other improvements of a
similar kind. A few of a great nmnber ol
certificates are subjoined They are from
the best workmen in (his country.
We have purchased the patent right of
Beard's Zig Zag or W shaped steel spring
saddle. It is decidedly superior to any
thing we have ever seen, for ease to the
rider and safety to the horse ; &. we con
fidently recommend it to the patronage of

We do not hesitate to pronounce it with

jraent we have ever seen ■, and we helieve
that it cannot be excelled or even equalled
both for ease to the rider and horse.

The following certificate is signed by a

This is to certify that we have purchas
ed one of Board’s Steel Spring Saddles,
and upon a fair trial, do, without hesita
tion, pronounce it superior to any we
have ever rode, for ease, it being elastic
and not as as hard and unpleasant as
those made in the old way. The rider
feels much lighter from the springs in the
Saddle, therefore, with confidence, we
recommend the Saddles made by Beard,
