J Mr. Snowden:—In discussing the question “ what means can be adopted to render our Town more prosperous?” I have already suggested what l consider would be greatly beneficial to the Town—the establishment of importing houses; and I have pointed out one instance in which it wuuld have a must important bearing upon our monied institutions, and, through them, thecom tounity at large I*have also admitted, that ma nufactures would be beneficial, but that com meice was necessary to give effect to them. In the application of this principle, I will now en deavor to show, that inarrti facta res cannot be suc cessfully carried on in this place, at the present time, without the aid of importation of foreign goods: although I admit the case would be dif ferent if the canal were now in operatioa—but of this hereafter. Two things are wanting, and are necessary to the successful operations of manufactures—capi tal and a market. With respect to the first, •* capital,” ‘'Bellhaven” says “ we have it in our pockets.” If this be so, and it happens to be in the pockets of those who would let it out of their pockets and place it in manufacturing establishments, there would be an end of the dis cussion on thi* branch of the subject. But I would ask *• Bellhaven” if this is the fact? I answer, no. It is true, there is capital sufficient in the hands, or pockets as •‘Bellhaven” will have it, of some citizens in town, to establish one or inure manufactories upon a large scale: but will they do it?—If we may judge the future by the past, I should say they will not; lor, with the exception of the gentleman to whom the Town is so much indebted for his enterprise and public spirit in the establishment of a Foundry and Ma chine Manufactory, and which is not surpassed bv anv establishment of the kind in this country, —and him of the Point, who is now setting up a manufactory which is likely to become ol much importance to the Town, in consequence of the great increase of ship building,—these gentle men are sattsfi d to enjoy the fortunes they have made, with but little disposition to invest their nionev in manufacturing establishments, or to devote their time and attention, in any other manner, for the general benefit. If, tnen, these large capitalists will not contribute to the esta blishment of manufactures, to what other sources must we look for the means of doing it? One source from which a sufficient capital for all our purposes may be drawn, has already been point ed out by a writer under the signature of “ M ” — Ilia suggestions are worthy of our serious con sideration. Another source is the joint stock scheme, which has not failed to answer the pur pose to the North, a id l have no doubt will equally well here. Bat,' if tlie^e fail, there is still another source; and that is. the transferring of a Dart of the caui tal employed id merchandise to that of manufac turing, a* suggested by •* Bellhaven,” and this will more fully show how much the success of the manufacturer depends upon the importation of the foreign fabrics sold in our market. To carry on the dry goods business as it is now conducted, by purchasing to tUe North to an extent that would be really beneficial to the Town, will require a considerable capital: for to compete at all with other places, the goods must be purchased with cash; and therefore, at "present, we could not reasonably expect our dry good merchants to do much towards manufac turing. But if the same amount of Goods was imported directly from the foreign manufacturer, the capital required would be much less than when purchased to the North, and therefore a ' much larger amount might be employed ii^ina nutartuie*: tor it will De recollected, tnat wnen you purchase to the North, you not only pay the prime cost at the place of exportation, hut you also pav duties, charges, and a profit, which, to gether, ne'er fails to be equal to the original cost*; whereas, if you import your goods, you only emploi so much money capital, in the first instance, as to pay the original cost* and charges of importation, the duties you have a profit on an>' the profit is saved Now, if the dutit* and pro fit* will amount to 50 per cent., this amount mi~ht be employed in manufactures in the man ner pointed out by “ Bellhaven ” And as th<. importing foreign goods would enable us to sell as low as in the Northern cities, it would neces sarily increase our business, and consequently add ‘so much to the consumption of domestic goods as to make the investment of that portion of capital in manufacture* a profitable invest ment, besides the other advantages pointed out v - Bellhaven.” It is evident, however, that at the present lime the demand for good* in this place does not off r a sufficient inducement to es tab ish manufactories to any extent; it would, therefore, be necessary to create an additional demand for such articles, before we could manu facture to advantage. And how is this to be done? I answer, by timportmg a general assortment of foreign goods suitable to country trade, and by selling them on such terms as wifi induce country dealers to purchase of you; you will thereby create a pro portionate demand for domestic goods. It seems to me, therefore, that in everv point of view I can place the sulject, the establishment of im porting houses is a matter of primary importance to the prosperity of our Towm. Bat even this plan will not produce a material change in our affairs, unless it is supported by our citizens generally; for, while the suicidal policy is continued winch,bas heretore been pur sued by many of our citizens, that of going to Washington to purchase good* instead of buying them at home, little good will be done to the Town from either importations or manufactures. Scarcely a day goes over our heads that some one of our citizen* does not go to Washington to purchase goods, under the pretence of getting them cheaper. Now l would a*k every reason able man, and particularly the ladies, how they can expect our Town to prosper, when the means of its prosperity is not only withheld from it, but actually transferred to its rival. If you pur-1 cha9e your goods at home, and even pay more for i them, which l do not admit to be the case, you enable your merchants to extend- their business and keep a better assortment, and the profit goes to increase the general prosperity of the place, in which we all participate in stone form or other; whereas, the money that is laid out by our citizens in Washington is, both as to princi pal and profit, as well as the time and expenses ' in going and returning, a total loss to the Town; i 'and is, in fact, an actual withdrawal of as much** capital from our Town as would he necessary to sustain manufactures to the extent required at, present: and I beg my fellow-citizens to corisi- J der the subject; it is an important one;—they! are pot aware of the extent of the mischief this ! system is entailing upon us: it must be broken ( up, or we shall never prosper as we ought to do. CITIZEN. SUDDEN TERMINATION OF THE PRE SIDENTS TOUR. From the fioston Centinel of Tuesday. We learn that the President reached Roxbury yesterday afternoon, on his return to Washing- j ton, and accepted an invitation of Samuel l). \ Bradford. E*q. to take lodgings at his mansion. Dr. Warren, we also learn, was called upon to , visit hint. Should hi* health permit he will pro ! ceed to Providence this morning, and take pas* j sage for New York in the steamboat. We learn j [ that he passed through this city about 5 o'clock, 1 in a stage coach, in a private manner. Mr. j ; Bradford’s mansion is about 5 miles from the | j city. It is probable that the President will re- ; main several days in this vicinity, as we learn that he has suffered much from fatigue. We have been credibly informed, from different sour ces. that the Jackson party proper in Portsmouth. N. H. were determined to have the exclusive re ception of the President to themselves: this caus ed a quarrel between them and the other citizens j of the place, in consequence of which the Presi Urlll wild men iruus, n'iu luiuru his back upon them all It is saul that this nar row minded spirit was also manifested in Con cord. But we shall soon hear more authentic ac count*, and will lay them before our readers. The President reached Concord, New Hamp shire, on Friday,—the authorities, eight light in fantry corps, and a large cavalcade were in wait ing to receive him, and escorted him to the Eagle Hotel. On Saturday he reviewed a battallion of light troops in the morning, and at noon visited the State Government at the capital, assembled in the Representatives’ Hall, where he was ad dressed by the Governor and introduced seve rally to the Counsellors, Senators, and Repre sentative*. j The President's Pet urn —Extract of a letter from a correspondent at Concord, New Hatnp shire, dated Saturday evtning. . o I have just been informed that the Piesiden' will proceed no further. He will not visit P<>rts j mouth nor extend his journey to Portland. Two causes are assigned for this determination. The most probatie is the state of his health. He is fairly beat out—completely exhausted and looks wretchedly. The other is the conduct of the party at Portsmouth, li appears that the town solicited the honor of a visit in its corporate ca pacity without regaid to party politics—but the «• porkers” rebel'ed and swore they would have the President all to themselves or he should not be reoeiwd at all. They accordingly seceded — and built and littered a new stye. The old Ge neral is outrageously provoked af their *• folly,” and has set his back against Portsmouth. At least—so goes the story. That he will proceed no further, I believe is true, and the cause no doubt as first stated. He is a very sick man.” We shall regret it exceedingly, if the Presi dent does not visit Portsmouth, as in his pio ! gress he would pass through the manufartuiing i town of Dover—where he would be shewn cloth i woven from the cotton of .Ids own “ growing”— i “ raised on the Tennessee Farm.” Tne Com panv bought his whole crop one year, and the J bales are all stamped “ Andrew Jui kson.” He is quite a judge of cotton, and speak* of its va rious qualities understanding!v. — Transcript. THE PRESIDENT’S RETURN. « Come like shadows, to depart.”—'I'i* done: j the pageant is over: the Presideni’s tour is ended; and before the setting of to morrow*)) sun. Gene, ral Jackson will be reposing in the People’s Pa lace at Washington. In other, and less pomp ous phraseology, it is our duty *o announce ihai the President ha9 suddenly cut shoit In* tour, ; and proceeded back to Washington with aM the \ expedition which steam boat* and railroads,1 could impart to his progress He proceeded east J wardly no turther than Concord, New Hamp shire, when* out account of yesterday leti him | From that place, owing, as we understand, to the state ol his health, he suddenly took hi- departure homewards on Monday morning. He hurried through Boston on the evening of that day,the cit- i izens being unapprised of the lact, and slept at Ja maica—six miles from the city. Travelling incog., as it were, he was yesterday Orst discovered on board of the steam boat at Providence, attended bv the Vice President and Secretary of the Na i vy, and other persons attached to his suite. On the arrival of the boat here this morning, the i President was transferred directly to the boat for Philadelphia, and had departed for the Fed-, eral capital before a soul in New Y'orfc knew of j his arrival. Thus abruptly has ended the grand j electioneering tour of the President, undertaken , for the truly republican purpose of forcing upon i the people a successor of his own appointing —with what success we shall see. Meantime we cannot but sympathize with our Jackson friends in Maine, Vermont, and the interior of New-York < at the grievous disappointment they must now | experience The whole line of village orators, | from Passaraaquoddv to Presque Isle, who were preparing to lubricate his path with rills of oily j ’ eloquence,—to greet the hero with impromptus , < prepared at a month’s ootice—will now be coin-; < pel led to pocket their manuscripts for another oc-: i casino. Tne ladies may now crop the rose buds • which they were saving to strew in the high ways j \ and the factory girl9 their dandelions. Kind cu-* rious descendants of mother Eve! How deeply 1 do we deplore your disappointment. But must j of all do we grieve for the Albany Regency—the : (. members of' which were preparing to take out f life leases of power, on the strength of improved I demonstrations of servility to the idol of popular ; 1 adulation. j® N. B. The Buston papers of yesterday, which | „ were caught napping when the President came j» through on his return, announce that the Chief encountered another peril at the East from which lie had a narrow escape. The Dunstable I ele graph noticing the barouche which coaveyed the President, and was drawn by a team of four beautiful grev horses, driven bv one of the own ers, Mr Cnnkev, says;—“Nothing but skill prevented a serious accident. The horses being very spirited, and unused to such excitement, se veral times became so frightened, that under the management of most men they would have been perfectly uncontrollable.*’ It seems by other ac counts, says the Transcript, that they did run ] with the barouche three mites, between Nashua and Concord, to the imminent danger of the Pre- j sident, but were at length brought up. Most ! sincerely do we wish him a safe return to the Ca pital, and ultimately to the Hermitage. P. S. The secret of the royal flight through the city before his subjects had brushed the poppies from their eves, was not generally known until 12 o’clock, and many were sceptical even then Sad are the lamentations of the chosen. The Philadelphia boat, we learn, was off before that from Providence arrived; but the latter gave chase, and overhauled the former near Bedlne’s Island—such was the necessity of the President’s exigency. P S. No. 2.—The Boston papers of yesterday have come to hand since the preceding was in type. The Commercial Gazette, (Jackson) speaks of the reception of the President at Concord, both by the Legislature and the citizen soldiers, in raptures, anil ’adds: “The President appeared much gratified with his recep'ion; but as his health was feeble, he could not enter into the fes tivities with that vigor and feeling which he hail 1 evinced in other places. That the situation of our venerable President is prer.arious. it would be folly to deny; and that he will improve faster at Washington, in the hands of the physicians, than in travelling aoout the country, is the opi nion of every intelligent oh-erver ” The Boston Cvntine! speaks of other causes than ill health, as conspiring to produie the sud Uen return. A quarrel is sain to nave laKeu place among the faithful, in consequence of which, the President became disgwted, and turned Ids back upon them all! —.V. Y. Com. July 3. from the Philadelphia Com Ileralt, July 4. The President ot the United'Stales passed through this city yesterday afternoon, on his way to Washington. The following account of his journey is given by our friend Major Jack Down* ing:-* Major Downing to his Uncle Ben. Philadelphia. Wednesday evening. July 3. Dear Uncle—Well I’m fairly beat out at lust; I’ve got left here bv some of their ‘*tarnal steam boat revolutions.” as Jemmy Tompkins says, and I’ll be hanged if I can kompnse myself, so as to kompnse for you a tolerable sketch of the matter. It was somehow this wav. You see, when we got to B"Ston, night afore last, says the Presi dent tome, Baxs he, “ Major Downing, I’m oft to morrow, after early breakfast, for the White House.” “ Why.” saxs I, “ Gmerai, xvhat do you mean?” “Why, Major,” says he, “ 1 mean what I sax,” just so, “ and if they can do without y.«u At Doxvningville, I’d like tohaxeyou go along) but you must be up betimes, for I’m off* like a streak of lightning.’* “ Then,” says I, “ Gine ral you go the Kail Roads this time, eh?” “ Oh! certain,” says he, “because I’m going on busi nm, Major Do" n'.ng ” Well, as sure as two and txvn makes four, at six o'clock yesterday morning, all of us had our breakfasts soug aboard, and soon after xve were seated in an extra pilot coach, and on our way to Providence, wliip and spur, I itHyou At noon we xvere aboard-the steamboat Providence, and had good accommodations, but a plagy rough time. Kowsoinever, wc got to Ncxv York just lime enough, as the jockies say, to be too late for the Philadelphia boat; bu'she was still in sight when we hove round the battery, so we signall’d her, and she lay by for us to come alongside. We rame on to this place in little or no time; part of the way by wati r, and part by land-; if rai’ read ing can be called land travelling—of which I have mv doubts.

President’s Return —We understand hat the President ol the United States passed Ihis city yesterday in the Rail Road Line from New Ymk, on his return to Washington liorn his New England tour. He stept from the New York on board of the Baltimore boat without anding. He was accompanied by the gentle men who left Washington with him. We further hear it rumored that the receipt of important despatches from Paris, in relation to he French Treaty, is the cause of the Prest lent’s sudden return to Washington, and that le is accompanied by the Vice President. A ewdays will reveal the mystery. , The President was in his usual state of health, rhe last accounts of his journey were from Con- , :urd, (N.

We are glad to find sentiments like those which follow, from the Augusta (G-t.) Constitu tionalist, in a southern paper. Some of the prints in that region are more disposed to mago ify, unjustly, the ravings of fanaticism, than to give the New England people credit for sober reflec tion and honesty of purpose. For some weeks past, we have, with extreme reluctance, devoted a portion of our columns to the recent discussion of what has been denomina ted the •* slave question.” It is one which no prudent man ever punlicly agnates, unless urged by absolute necessity. This necessity is the only justification of the part which we have so unwillingly taken. Ceram pr**sn of the south have endeavored to spread an alarm, which we believe to be grossly exaggerated, if not entirely unfounded. The quotations which we have had occasion to produce, must convince every dispassionate reader, that the n;.v,**s of <<tr' northern fellow citizens, disavow at • < > interfere with the suhjfct in quotum. F ma ttes there may be among them, as there ar< every where else, who would hazard the vjn\er sion of social order, in prosecuting toe s;i*«m,,» of a lunatic philanthropy. But the good sen*e of the north discerns, nud reprohates, Hie delu sion; and the greater part even of those, whose abstract opinions might incline them to be in imical, are nevertheless duly impressed, by the great practical truth, that their first act of In terference is a signal for the dissolution of the Union. No purpose to disturb our local institu tions, can be fixed upon any body of men, who either possess, or are likely to be the possessors of political power. There is no demand for a political movement on our part. Whenever the necessity does arise, there will, there can be no hesitation. A* want of sensitiveness in relation to this matter, is no fault of our people. On the contrary, experience demonstrates, that in every cast, exigence, they have rather exceeded than (alien short. Uur case, our residence, our most imperious interests are ttie sure guarantees of uni versal vigilance and zeal. But this recent sounding of the tocsin is not merely superfluous: it is a most flagrant indis cretion, which direclly tends to creale the very evil which is deprecated. A few maniacal pro jectors issue incendiary publication* a thousand miles off*: these occasiona'ly_ appear among us, but in numbers so small as to render them ob jects rd curiosity: and they are moreover almost unanimously denounced, in the very communi ties where they oiigmate. Under litese circuit) stances, wdiat has bepn the course adopted bv some of tho-c who aftect the peculiar guardian ship of the public security? They have select ed the vilest and most dangerous passages from these verv papers, and republished them in their own journals, to which every reading individual in the country has tl.e readiest access. They have connected wiili them also, comments, ap parentlv intended to produce a belief that the peoplr 'of the north sanction the projects of the revolutionists, and are inclined to support them. Does chaiit) forbid us to regard such conduct as madnes>? Does not charily Hself indeed sug gest some temporary eclipse of judgment,or trans port of passion, as the only possible excuse for this monstrous impolicy? We make great al lowance for the rage of political warfare, in which combatants are tempted hastily to avail them selves «f any resource that promises immediate advan'age, without adverting to the ultimate ef fect. But it is time that this frenzy hail subsid ed. If the public did really need a warning,that warning lias now at least been fully given. The habitual discussion of such a topic, in our domes tic newspapers, is manifestly an evil not to be endured. If a hostile policy is pi eached against us, under the guise of philanthropy, or attempt ed in practice, through secret machination. *we shall best counteract it bv quiet vigilance, and a ftim moderation If the general government in terferes with our rights, ihere is an end of the matter—we repeat it-—the Union is dissolved.— But we may he certain, that should Congress nvpr rlipriuh tht> ilpuun. ihn Piiibliri* of if will lie unequivocal, since iheir measures cannot steal upon us in the dark. Nor do we think that such an event need be anticipated. The inevitable consequences are as welt known in Boston as in Charleston, in Cincinnati as in Augusta; and that knowledge itself is our ample security against political molestation. But to conclude: waiving ill further controversy concerning present inili cations or future possibilities, we en»rea4 eveiy sincere friend of the South, whatever his party, maturely to reflect on the disastrous tendencies i»f the present agitation, which, we verily believe, is promoting the purposes of our enemies more than all that they themselves have ever spoken, written or done. Serious Accident.—Yesterday afternoon, the Rev. I)i. Mtlledoler, President of Rutgers Col lege, Ne* Jersey, fell into Ihe vault of the mid dle aisle of the North Church, opened for the re cep1 ion of the body of the Rev, Dr Kuvpers.— Although much bruised, it affords us great plea sure to atnte, that up to twelve o’clock this day, no seri"Us apprehensions are entertained of the result. \Ve cannot forbear t .entiomng that this disaster, one which came near depriving the com munity ol a most valuable member, was caused by the carelessness of the sexton, in leaving npen Ihe vault in a church where a crowd was expect ’d, and without any one to point out the danger, is the procession was approaching the altar. The accident occurred at the moment the bear >rs we a resting the body in the aisle. It of :ourse, caused great excitement, and as goon as the Doctor was assisted Irom the vault, he was :arried to the residence of the Rev.
