THE DEPARTED TRIBES. BY I. M’LELLAN, JR. They’re fading, they’re fading, In solemn gloom away; Like vapors on the mountain, At dawning of the day; They’re falling, they’re falling, Like leaves in autumn time, When in the woods the cheerless breeze Sighs forth its hollow chime! They’re dying, they’re dying, Like those who feel at heart, That stern consumption’s finger Is beckoning to depart. I look upon the mountain top— Lo! all their fires are out! I tread along the vallies, Lo! silent is their shout! Along the green marge of the lake, Along the sandy shore, A solemn voice doth seem to say, The old tribes arc no more! Their very names are all forgot, Their ancient graves unknown, And dim oblivion’s shadow Around them wide is thrown. Health of Baltimore.—The bill of mortality for Baltimore the last week, presents the very low number of only thirty sir persons, two of whom died of old age—a degree of health sel dom witnessed in any of our large sea-port towns at this season ot the year. In Philadelphia, last week, there were 103 deaths—60 aJults and 48 children.—Balt. Ciaz. Health of the City—The official returns of deaths in this city during the week ending Satur day morning last, has not yet been received, but it is understood that the whole number does not exceed 300, including 35 or 90 by Cholera. The whole number of deaths during the previ ous week was404 of which bv Cholera 197. N. Y. J. Com. Specie.—The Poland has on board 812,680, 12150 five franc pieces, 2000 francs, and 8 bbls. specie. The Montreal has also 20 boxes of gold. The Sylvia de Grasse, from Havre, brought out in francs and gold, about 500,000 dollars. New York Gaz. Josepeh Bonaparte.—This distinguished gen tleman was at London at the last advices. We have seen recent letters from him to a friend in this country, in which he expresses a strong de sire to return to the United States. He is de tained in Europe, waiting permission to visit Rome, to settle some family affairs. He has ob tained the requisite passports from all the great powers, but there are two pretty Princes, who will not allow him to pass through their domin ions.—A’. V'. Com. Novel Excursion —The Race-boat Whitehall, with four Whitehall oarsmen, will leave New York this morning, for Philadelphia, by way ol the Delaware and Raritan Canal—intending to row the distance and be in Philadelphia by sun down.—N. Y. Amer. North Carolina (raid Coin.— I'he Carolinians have contrived to put their gold into a shape to pass by tale. Several skilful essayists have es tablished themselves in the gold regions, and have acquired so much reputation for accura cy, that their pieces of gold marked “ five dol lars,” pass every where as half eagles. It is a kind of inspection, yet we think it may finally make trouble, as these pieces may be counter feited without incui ring the same penalty which is attached to counterfeiting the national coin, or in fact any penalty at all. A. V. Jour, of Com. Distressing Intelligence.—News has been re ceived by the owners of the brig Charles Dog gelt, from Capt. Batchellcr. dated at Manilla, April 7, in which he gives the melancholy intel ligence of his crew, 14 in number, having been attacked at the Fejee Islands, in Sept, by the natives while employed on shore, and nine of their number killed, viz. Charles Shipman. 1st officer, Benj. W. Barton, Ichabod Smith, Wm. Horn, and an Otaheitan seaman. The other four had been left by other vessels that had vi sited the Islands, and at the time of attack were all in the employ of Capt. B. Those who es caped were all wounded, among them was Mr. Jes Magoon, of Salem, not badly. After an ab sence of 10 or 15 davs Captain B. returned to the place, when the natives restored the bodies of his deceased men. On his passage to Manilla, Capt. B. touched at the Peiew Islands, and was there attacked by several hundred natives, whom he beat off without any loss on his part, except a Sandwich Island boy. The 2d officer was thrown overboard in the skirmish, but was for tunately saved.—.V. Y. Jour. Com. The Courier & Enquirer, already painfully large for slender arms to extend, appears this morning on a broader sheet. It was formerly called the blanket; it must now be considered the counterpane. We lost a penny paper in its folds, and found it, after a search, in the corner of an advertisement.— .V. Y. Star. .4 Luxury.—We were yesterday permitted to 1 examine a cigar, presented by the commander of an English ship to the master of one of our | whalemen, just returned from the Pacific, as a memorial of the imitative power of our eastern j brethren. This cigar was taken from a large1 parcel which the Briton had purchased of the 1 Yankee, with intent to solace himself occasion ally with a glorious puff of the pure Indian weed; and the disappointment of Mr. Bull’s nose, so sharply bent on being regaled with the true Virginia fragrance, at perceiving an odor exceedingly unlike that of the anticipated to bacco, may be readiiy imagined. Like the sample now shown us, his wjiolestock of smoke tubes con-isted of cigar-shaped rolls of oak leaves and skunk cabbage, without even^ypinch . of snuff intermixed, to give them a taflr Xa t tuckerL % — "• '* >* 4 * FALLS OF NIAGARA. j The following description of the Falls of Nia- j gara is from Ingraham’s ‘ Manual,’ a very ex cellent little book, intended for the use of visit ers to that region; being an epitome of a larger and more extended work, relative to that niosj stupendous wonder of the world: Having taken a brief preliminary view of the waters of the St. Lawrence, and the natuial features of the Niagara, we come now to the centre of all the attractions of this region ol many wonders—the Falls; for this, pur ejce - lence, is their appropriate cognomen, tncre be ing no others like them in the world, none that can dispute with them the claim to this charac teristic and appropriate title. “ They are alone in their kind. Though a water-fall, this is not to be compared with other water-falls; in its majesty, its supremacy, and its Influences upon the soul of man, its brotherhood is with the liv ing ocean and the eternal hills.-’ FJ ....... .. _„»_Hi “ mere is nougm mcc. i nut «« i I have already mentioned the position of the Falls, when speaking of the Straits in which they are situated. They are about twenty-three miles from Lake Erie, and fourteen from Onta rio, by the road, or the windings of the river; and fifteen from Buffalo, and twelve from Lake Ontario in a straight line. They are situated in lat. 13 deg. 6 min. N., and long. 2 deg. 6 min. VV. from Washington, or79deg. 1 min. W. from Greenwich. . As has already been mentioned, the river at the Kails makes a very abrupt turn, and runs al most in a right angle with its former course; and at the same time it is suddenly contracted from about a mile, to one-eight of a mile in width.— Goat Island is at the verge; and divides the Falls into two great sections; while a smaller islet called Prospect Island, also on the verge, divides the smaller of these two sections into two parts. So that there are three distinct Falls. • That next to the New York shore, and the most I northerly of the three, is called the Schlosser ' Fall, and is about lifty-six rods in width, and ! one hundred and sixty-seven feet in perpendic ular descent. Piospect#Island, adjoining, is I about ten yards in width, and the smaller or j Central Fall, is also about ten yards. Goat Isl ' and is about eighty rods in width, at the edge, i and the Great Crescent or Horse-shoe Fall, ! which extends from Goat Island to the C anada ■ shore, is about a quarter of a mile in a direct line, or about half a mile following the lire of j the curve. This latter has a perpendicular de scent of about one hundred and fifty-four feet; but owing to its being thirteen feet less than the I Schlosser Fall, a much greater body of water | passes over it; and it is to its inferior height ' that its much greater magnitude is owing, j The water, when projected over the Falls, does not descend perpendicularly; but, owing to the immense velocity which it lias acquired, before reaching the edge, it follows the general laws of all projectiles and descends in a parabo lic curve. Its color is not the same in every part, but is beautifully diversified, being snowy ! white, ttimber brown, yellowish, blueish, and green of various shades;—and at the central ! part of the Crescent Fall, where the wafer is 1 deepest, its color is n most beautiful emerald | green. , . I ! The color varies, too, at different times. At ' ter a very heavy rain, or high wind, the waters J 1 above the falls become discolored and dirty, j i from the impurities brought into the stream by I the creeks on its margin; but these impurities I add to the beauty of the Falls, unless the water is so extensively discolored, as to deprive it of i its green appearance, which 1 have sometimes 1 observed to be the case. 1 m ■ A r II • _ l n L /I nn<l fl’/xm • l iiu waici laus in j - ’ such an immense height, that much of it is con verted into spray, long before it reaches the bottom; and clouds of the mist are continually j rising, often to a very great height.—So high indeed, that it tnav sometimes be seen at the distance of fifty miles;— and of course may be ob served at the same time by spectators who are one hundred miles distant from each other! This great body of water, too, falling with I such prodigious force, is changed at the bottom 1 into a white foam, and has the appearance of a mighty river of cream. It is not till it has been i carried some distance down the stream,that it re gains its green color. It is exceedingly interest ing to watch the various phenomena of this ! foam and mist; to trace the apparent boiling of the immense caldron of milk below, and the as cending clouds of vapor above; and the va rious currents and counter-currents, flowing with great impetuosity, in all directions. The laboring stream seems inwardly convulsed, heaving and throbbing in dark and bubbling | whirlpools, as if it threatened every moment to | eject some of the mystic terrors of the deep. 1 This effect is probably produced by the re-ac tion of the ascending water. Precipitated in ! such a great body, and to such an extiaordina ry depth, by their own prodigious gravity, and the force of their impulsion, and involving with them a great quantity of fixed air, they re-as- J cend to the surface in a struggling career, check ed by the weight of the superincumbent water. The immense depth from which they ascend, , causes the moving of the whole mass of water j in the basin; “ And their earth-shaking roar comes deadened up Like subterranean thunders.” The quantity of water precipitated over the Falls has been estimated by President Dwight, at 102,093.750 tons and by Darby, at 1,672,704,- j 000 cubic feet, per hour; and by Picken, at 113,- j 510,000 gallons, or IS,524,000 cubic feet per mi- , nute. ^ We understand that all the Members of the j Committee of the House of Representatives on the Post Office business have reached this city. 1 The committee consists of Mr. Connor, of N. ; Carolina, Mr. Whittlesey, of Ohio, Mr. Everett, j of Vermont, Mr. Beardsley, of New York, Mr. j Watmough, of Pennsylvania, Mr. Hawes, of Kentucky, and Mr. Stoddert, of Maryland.

The proceedings in the city of* Baltimore re lative to this great work, cannot but be viewed with peculiar and heartfelt satisfaction by t public. That the citizens of Baltimore must feel “ a deep interest in the completion of the Chesapeake and Ohio Canal immediately, even to the point which terminates the present contracts, is obvious; since this ,mP™vement opens the only avenue by which the V\est ca be seasonably and advantageously reached to arrest the diversion of the whole trade of tha region into the lap of Philadelphia by which, in conjunction with the State of Pennsylvania, every effort has been made, and is now more vigorously than ever prosecuted, to attain an object, which, if effected, must be attended "ith the most serious consequences to the city ol Baltimore. This emporium, however, is now . . . _) i_•mil IC uiive iu liei nuric&i», •• - . ecuting such plans as will render efficient tne j works of internal improvement connected with her prosperity, and among these the Chesa peake and Ohio Canal to our minds holds the first rank. Fostered and encouraged by Balti more, it must advance rapidly to completion, | and she will be the first to experience the mvi gorating and enriching fruits of its tiude. 'The Aqueduct, across the Conococheague at this place, is a splendid piece of .masonry, and , confers great credit upon the builder, Mi. Ed*; ward H. Fielding. The material is from a vaiu-, able quarry of limestone, scarcely inferior to ; granite, found on the lands of Mr. W m. low son at the High Hocks, from which the stone is ; taken by the process of splitting, in blocks of great size. They are susceptible of being dress- , ed with a chisel'in the same way, and with as much nicety, as granite, as may be observed in j the pilasters, arches, copings, and ornamental • parts of the Aqueduct. There are three arches in the woik of sixty feet span each, and the piers are eight feet thick. It combines strength and massive solidity with a very high degieof beau ty and grace. Seated as it is in the bosom of delightful natural scenery, with a long and majestic curve of artificial canal extending from either abutment, and around the great bend of the Potomac, it forms to the eye an ex tremcly agreeable and impressive spectacle, the praise and admiration of every beholder. It received the finishing stroke several weeks ag"; and we censure ourselves for not having introdu ced it to the notice of the public before this time. The water of the Potomac pas-mg through its chamber, with a canal boat or two, would add, however, very much to its appearance. These, though it cannot boast of them now, it is ready to accommodate at a moment’s warning. If illiamsgort Runner.

BLANKS AND PAMPHLETS Printed, with neatness & despatch, at this office ALEXANDRIA: i THURSDAY MORNING, SEPT. 25, 1834. ; _ . 1 SUMMARY OF NEWS. A large Alligator, about 7 feet long, was shot in the dock at Charleston on the 17th, by a cap tain of a vessel. The whole charge was lodged in the head of the monster, and he died imme diately. Accounts from Louisiana and Mississippi state that the sugar crop is uncommonly pro mising this year, but that cotton has been some what injured by late heavy rains. The Steamboat Wm. Gibbons of New \ ork does not go South, as she can get no passengers who are willing to rhk eleven days quarantine at Charleston. She offered to clear from Am boy in Jersey, but they did not like to venture. The Siamese Twins are now at Culpeper Court House. Mr. Campbell has received S2UUU ior mis copy right of the life of Mrs. Siddons, and Allan Cun ningham $3000 for his life of Burns. The Staunton Spectator states that thirty-se ven bills of indictment were found against per sons for perjury, and forgery, at the late session of the Federal Court at Clarksburg. These of fences were all connected with frauds under the pension laws. From an enquiry made by Messrs. ToplifF. of City Hall News Room, Boston, it is ascertained that the number of vessels which have registers,, now lying at the Boston wharves unemployed, | is 132, viz: 61 ships and barks, amounting to | 21,413 tons; 71 brigs, 13,531 tons, and 20 schoo- j ners, 2092 tons: total of tonnage unemployed,j 37.036 tons. This, it is to be observed, does not include a considerable number of large vessels which have coasting licenses. The 1 enow Fever nas prevaueu uu uu<uu me United States schooner Grampus, now at Pen sacola. A letter says: “Two of the officers j were first attacked, and then it spread among the men, five or six of whom were taken down with it every day, until it went through nearly the whole crew; only about a dozen men and five officers, including the Doctor and Purser, having escaped.” The Richmond Compiler says: “ The arrival of twenty-five gamblers on Saturday was imme diately made known to tlie Anti-Gambling So ( ciety. They have come on,, as we learn, to | make the necessary arrangements for the regu lar semiannual campaign during the races.” The Mayor of Quebec recently stated at a public meeting, that the Cholera had carried ofi from fourteen to fifteen hundred residents of that city during the present year. That the people of Pennsylvania are in ear nest in reference to the attainment of the impor tant object of connecting their great State Ca nal with the Chesapeake Ray, there can be no j doubt. The Wheeling Times states that 135 tons of pro J duce were forwarded from that town to Balti more, by wagons, during the previous week. It would seem that in the march of intempe rance Great Britain has reached a point beyond ! even that which we have attained in the United States. Judge Baird was assaulted in the street in | Uniontown,Fayette county,Pa.one day last week j in his way from the Court House to his chain- ( her by a party in a cause, against whom the j Court had charged the Jury unfavorably, and . several blows were inflicted before the assailant •ould be arrested. Among the distinguished strangers at Paris who were honored with seats at the opening of | the Chamber of Deputies by the “King of the j French,” and at the ceremonies of the recep-j tion of his Majesty,and the delivery of his speech, j we notice the name of “Me Hon. Joseph M. White, | of the American Congress.''' Two pharmaceutists of Paris have discover-) ed a new method of embalming the human bo-; dy, which is capable of so great a degree of perfection as to preserve entire the traits of; countenance with all the integrity and freshness | they exhibited during life. The Woollen Mill belonging to the Salmon Falls Company, N. H. it is well known, was con-; sumed by fire a few weeks ago, and although it, was insured, nr nearly enough to have erected a j new Mill, and to have filled it with Machinery, J yet the owners have determined wholly to aban don the business. In the town of Durham, (Conn.) containing a population of something like 1300 inhabitants, not a death has occurred since the commence ment of the present year, embracing a period of about eight months. An action of slander, brought by Laura Howe ; against Benjamin Perry, was tried before the | Supreme Court at Greenfield, Mass, last week. The defendant is a widow, about twenty three years of age. of an unblemished and unsuspect ed character. The defendant had charged her with the most infamous conduct. The words were fully proven, and proved to have been spoken under circumstances indicating great malignity. \o justification was attempted. The I jury returned a verdict of £ 1350 damages. The Mails.—The Mobile Register of the 10th inst. mentions that the reported failure of the mails between that city and Montgomery, with in the past two weeks, had been occasioned by a dispute between the Post Master at one of the J offices on the route, and the stage driver, as to the precise spot between the office and the stage at which the carrier is bound to receive the mail bag from the Post master! Here is a question of precedence truly, and until the de licate point is settled, the public must be con-1 tent to labor under the disadvantages of tardy j and irregular m tils. Status of Thomas Jlffehsom—The follow, ing article, in relation to the Statue in bronze of Thomas Jefferson, presented to, but not accept ed by, the Congress of the United States by Lieut. Levy, of the United States Navy, appears in the Globe of yesterday: “ While on a visit to Paris, Lieut. Levy. 0f the United States Navy, employed David, “the Republican,” and the first of living sculptors, to make a Colossal Statue of Thomas Jefferson the great model of Republicanism in the only free country under the sun. “The statue being completed. Lieut. Levy sent, as a present to the City of New York a plaster model of it, which was gratefully ac’ cepted as an ornament for their City Hall: and he brought over the Bronze Statue itself, as aa offering to his fellow-citizens of the U. States — As such he offered it to Congress. The oiler was referred to a Joint Commttee of the tw0 Houses. They accepted the present thus offer ed to the People of the United States, and sub mitted a resoiutioh determining where it should be placed. ii line 111*3 was \\ \y («j* discovered that Lieut. Levy’sadmiration was nut confined to Mr. Jefferson, but that he was guilty in common with the great mass of his fellow-,.’ tizens, of holding Gen. Jackson's principles and character in very high esteem. The same r,*. publican zeal which made him an enthusiast with regard to Jefferson, made him an admirer of Jackson. Although himself a holder of stock of the United States Bank, his principles prevailed over his Interest; and he avowed loudly a toi dial and warm approbation of the President's course with regard to that institution. Having become a resident of Virginia, by the pmcli i-e of Monticello, he made himself known there as a warm supporter of Gen. Jack-oil's a<!nimi>. tration—as a determined unti-Bank man. ami opponent of all Bank men. This mav peiha; - account for the fate of the re-o|iiti<>u lorplai ing the statue presented by Lieut. Levy in t - grounds of- the Capitol, and |i,r tie* discoveries, announced in the subjoined remaiks of M -r-. Clay and Calhoun, on the floor of the Senate, that the statue was not M a suitable <>•.' that it was not executed by “ a compel- t artist" —that the motive of the donor was not an hon est admiration of Mr. Jefferson’s chniecter and principles, and a patriotic zeal in doing ho mage to both, but could be nothing blit " ruulh/." We have every reason to believe that the Globe is acquainted with all the circum-taiicr connected with this famous Statue, whit!, ma ny of our readers have doubtless -eeit in the Ilotunda of the Capitol. If so, the above arti cle is a most complete exhibition of impudence and assurance. The rejection of the Statue was placed on proper and delicate grounds, in the public debate which occurred in tin- Senate on the subject. Theprivutc circumstances con nected with its purchase, as we have heard, could not be stated consistently with the dignity of that body. If the current rumors relative to | the procuring and presentation of this Statue he correct, there is not .in American living who would not blush to see it in the Capitol of the Republic. Lieutenant Levy's! Statue of Jeffer son, brought from France! quotha! M ho lu< not heard all about it? Ahhival Extkaurdi.vaky.—The York Com mercial announces the arrival in that city of George Thompson!—called, in the Anti-Slavery Report, the “ advocate of the British slave.-.' who has come to “ our shores to devote hisn<> ble energies to the same cause!" It is under stood that, at the instance of certain fanatic- i this country, he has been sent on a mi--ion to the “everlasting heathens” of America, to mi vui ipiiwnuioi imi mv nuujt i-i wi iliate abolition ,” and that he is employed Mr this purpose by a nociety of latHe* in Glasgow. Mr. Thompson, adds the Commercial, Ini'al ready been the subject of one incident, which we trust will prove useful to him, and which.if he has a particle of wisdom or prudence, vi.l induce him either to abandon at once the object of his mission, and travel amongst us unobtru sively, as a private gentleman, or embark in tk first packet on his return to England. The in cident referred to is this:— On Saturday morn ing last, one of the lending Anti-Colonization ists of New York, engaged apartment- for a gentleman and his family, at the Atlantic II"!' . but with the usual disingeritiousnes.s of the gen tleman to whom we refer, he omitted to give the name of the stranger, or in any manner l« indicate the nature or character of his piir-ti;t« Accordingly, on the evening of that day, tk gentleman,With his lady, children, and servant, came to the hotel, and it was -omi a sect tain* <1 that they were none others than Geoige Tliott'l' son and his family. The fact was soon buzz*'" about, and occasioned no small stir among Ik inmates of the hotel, numbering near oneM* dred gentlemen, many of whom were ti<*mi Hu^li. All yesterday the dissatisfaction : ciWsed. and was not inconsiderably h* ig' ^ e*l by the repeated entrances ami exit-1 officious and surpassingly unpopular imiii ■' • who had introduced the emissary to that*1'" blishment.
