Life of A aron Bchh.—The first volume of the Life of Aaron Burr, by Mr. Davis, is just pub- ! lished by Messrs. Harper oc Brothers. It termi- j nates at the period ot the contest for the Presi- j dency between Col. Burr and Mr. JePerson, and i consequently at the very threshold of the most; intere>ting portion of his life. As a literary work it wiil rather pass among those memoirs which conn ibute to form history, than be digni fied with the title of a finished biography. It is chiefly composed of letters from Col. Burr to his friends and family, with numerous replies, link ed together by a slight historical chain, in a style which seems not to aspire to much dignity, but which is satisfied with commenting briefly upon such authentic documents as exhibit the fairer views of Col. Burr’s character, habits and man ners. The Impression to be drawn from the work, so far as the author lias proceeded with it, is highly favorable to the intellectual reputa lion of its subject, who was unquestionably a person of remarkable powers. The insubordi nation and irregularity, the want of all early dis cipline save sell discipline, w hich characterized the different stages of his childhood and youth, his dissatisfied, restless and intriguing spirit, his energy and resolution, his bold contempt and defiance of difficulties moral and physical, his genius rather ardent than profound, and his courage and military ability, united as they weie to his cold hearted and ungenerous libertinism, and other strong defects in his moral character which early excited in General \\ ashington that distrust of Ids integrity which he always retain ed, combine, aside from his later histoiy, to make Colonel Burr a study of no mean interest, and a subject for a more philosophical pen than inai oi uis pi wm i. It must be acknowledged that a reader who knew* no more of Col. Burr tnan is exhibited in Mr. Davis’ first volume, would rise from its pe rusal with many just predilections in his favor. The general biographical hypothesis deems the selection of a triend less injurious to truth than the invidious suppressions and suggestions of an *nemv. In his delineation of Col. Buir s eaiiV military and civil career, Mr. Davis has c< i tainly not gone beyond precedent and we ate not disposed to censure his course. 1 he dilata tion of some passages might have thrown a clearer light on events, but it must be recollect ed that .\fr. Davis had his materials chosen for him, and that he is in a measure the mere edi tor of an autobiography. A more difficult task is yet before him.” Hitherto his admiration and advocacy havg exalted the reputation of Bis friend without impinging very nearly upon those ot distinguished contemporaries. A few por tions of the earlier history may call out surviv ing relations, but those passages involve no very serious conflict of evidence. They hang more upon opinion than upon fact. But the Presi dential contest and the events of a few impor tant years which followed it, comprise, so far as the interest of the present generation and the history of the country are conccinod, the lifeot Aaron Burr. They decided the destiny of the most ambitious man in America, and changed into absolute desolation a_ career ^ .VSoucu: Wseiy 'stopped to take breath, since, if we may judge from his concluding paragraph, he is about to throw down the gauntlet for an acrimonious investigation of grave and irritat ing topics, What the public may expect from the sequel of his work may be gathered from the concluding passage of the present volume. We shall look for the developments promised in the next with less apprehension than impa tience.— Xatiunui Gazette. ‘•On proceeding to t lie [ Presidential J ballot a contest ensued which lasted for several days, pro ducing the most implacable and bitter animosi ties; a contest which terminated in the election of Mr. Jefferson and the ruin of Col. Burr. Until j within a few years past that scene has been com pletely enveloped in mystery. A part of the in cidents connected with it. however, in a fugitive form, are before the world. But the period has arrived when the question should be met with manly firmness; when the voice of history should announce to posterity the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth, so far as it can be as certained. The generation which were the ac tors in those scenes have passed away. The parties immediately interested are sleeping the sleep of death. Few, very few indeed now liv ing, understand the nature of that contest. The curtain shall be drawn aside. The documents which devdope its character, and which are scattered in fragments, will be brought together, and recorded (it is hoped) in a permanent and tangible form. It will be seen that the immediate friends and advisers of Mr. Jefferson, until within a few hours ot the balloting, had no confidence in cer tain leading and distinguished members of Con gress, whose names shall be given, but who, on his coming into power, promptly received the most substantial evidence of his kind leelings by appointments to office. The clearest evidence will be presented that Mr. Jefferson entered in to terms and conditions with the federal party or some of their leaders; that the honorable James A. Bayard, of Delaware, acted on the part of the federalists, and the honorable iSamuel Smith, of Maryland, at present may or ot Baltimore, on the part of Mr. Jeffer son; and that terms and conditions were agreed upon between them before Mr. Jefferson could be elected; while, on the other hand, it will be demonstrated that the charges which have been j made against Col. Burr of having intrigued and j negotiated with the federal paity to obtain the j office of president were as unjust as the}' were : groundless. But "1 come to buy C<e$tu\ not to ;praise nun/' | We referred on Tuesday to the “Memoirs of j Aaron Burr,” by M. L. Davis—the first volume ' of which has just been issued. We blush fori our own nature—we blush for our country, when a man endowed as was Burr, should have de- j served the character which hts best friend is compelled to give him. We copy Iron) the vo-1 lume the following.—r. S. (iazdte.\ “Major Burr, while yet at college, had acquir- j ed a reputation for gallantry. On this point he • was excessively vain, and regardless of all those ! tics which ought to control an honorable mind. 1 In his intercourse with females he was an un-! principled fialtcrer, ever prepared to take ad vantage of their weakness, their credulity, or their confidence. She that confided in him was ■ lost. In referring to this subject, no terms of condemnation would be loo strong lo apply to Colonel Burr. “It is truly surprising how any individual j could have become so eminent as a soldier, as ' a statesman, and as a professional man, who f devoted so much time to the other sex, as was j devoted by Col. Burr. For more than half a century of his life they seemed to absorb his whole thoughts. His conduct wasmost licentious. The sacred bonds of friendship were unhesita tingly violated when they opened as barriers to the indulgence of his passions. For a long peri-: od of time lie seemed to be gathering, and care- j fully preserving, every line written to him by 1 any female, whether with or without reputation; and, when obtained, they we* e cast into one common receptacle,—the profligate and corrupt, by the side of the thoughtless and betrayed vic tim. All were held as trophies of victory,—all esteemed alike valuable. How shocking to the man of sensibility! IIow mortifying and heart sickening to the intellectual, the artless, the lullen fan! ; Among these manuscripts were many the pro ductions o! highly cultivated minds. They weie : calculated to excite the sympathy of the brother —the parent—-the husband. They were, in- | deed, testimonials of the weakness of the weaker sex, even where genius and learning would j seem to be towering above the arts of the sedu- j cer. Why they were thus carefully preserved, , is left to conjecture. Can it be true that Moore j is correct, when, in his life of Lord Byron, he • says, “The allusions which he (Byron) makes to instances of successful passion in his ca were not without their influence on the fancies of that sex, whose weakness it is to be most easily won by those who come recoin mended by the greatest number of triumphs over others?” Some of these productions had been penned more than sixty years. They were all committed to the flames, however, immedi ately after the decease of Colonel Burr. 01 them, it is believed, “not a wreck remains?” The faithful biographer could not pass over in silence this strong and revolting trait in the character of Colonel Burr. It will not again be referred to. From details, the moralist and the good man in list shrink with disgust and abhor rence. In this particular, Burr appears to have been unfeeling and heartless. And yet, by a fas cinating power almost peculiar to himself, he so managed as to retain the affection, in some in stances, the devotion, of his deluded victims.— In every other respect he was kind and chai ita ble. No man would go farther to alleviate the sufferings of another. No man was more bene volent. NTo man would make greater sacrifices to promote the interest or the happiness of a friend. How’ strange, how* inconsistent, how conflicting are these allusions! They arc never theless strictly true.” POLICE REPORT. The Medical Faculty, vs. Juhn Williams—for infringement of chatter to Medical Society. This case came on for trial on the evening of the 14th instant, before three magistrates. Dr. Williams, the “celebrated” oculist, was brought up bv a warrant of 13. K. Morsell, Esq. on a charge of violating the privileges and rights of the said Medical Society, by practis ing medicine without having a certificate from said Medical Society, or without producing a diploma—and the District Attorney prayed of the justices to hold said Williams to bail to try the validity of said charge, and recover fifty dol lars—half to the informer and half to Medical Society—and also to prosecute him for receiv ing money under false pretences. The Doc tor exhibited some six or eight certificates or diplomas from Europe, many letters of a high ly honorable character from the Mayor of New Vo*-?* ••la.mtvu ^icig^uiun oi Philadelphia, the Mayor of Baltimore, Sec. The District At torney contended that the genuineness of the letters was not clearly established, and as to the diplomas there was no test or certainty that they were authentic; and, therefore, Dr. Wil liams ought to be held to bail for (we think lie said) forgery, more particularly for receiving money under false pretences, inasmuch as he had, in at least one instance, undertaken to cure a case of blindness in which he had failed., On the other hand, Mr. Brent contended that j the Medical Society was defunct; that when j they existed as a society they were not compe-1 tent judges of oculism; that the Doctor had an abundance of diplomas, &c.; and as to the charge of promising to cure a person, and fail- , iug, that was so common among the Faculty, that if they were all tried by the same rule the i Penitentiary would not be large enough to hold I all the doctors who would be sent there. At the second sitting the Court decided that ! Dr. Williams be held to bail for practising me dicine without a certificate, in the sum of ••two hundred dollars:” for receiving money under j false pretences, in the sum of “five hundred dol- ' lars.”— Washingtonian. I Potomac Bridge.—A report from the Secreta- ! ry of the Treasury gives a statement of the ex- j pcnditure made by his Department, in carrying into effect the joint resolution of Congress of . the 17th of June last, authorizing the Secretary of the Treasury “to have all repairs made to ! the bridge across the Potomac river which have j become necessary from the late flood; and that the expenses of said repairs be paid out of the money heretofore appropriated for the erection of said bridge, and which is now in the Treasu ry unexpended.” j The amount expended under this resolution 1 is $11,992 05—applied to the following items of expenditure, agreeably to the report of the su- - perintending engineer, viz. For repairs to the bridge, $3,369 44 Do. to causeway, 3,700 00 Do. to drawsjvt piers supporting them, 6.000 00 j Do. to abutments, & gravelling them, 500 00 ‘ For wharfing, &c. to draw on Va. side, 1,600 00 Do. do. Washington side, 4,400 00 For painting and materials, 261 00 For superintendence, stationary, 524 62 For outstanding bills for advertising, &c. building of bridge, paid since former 1 report, 33 99 $11.992 03 This was a small sum short of the estimate submitted by the engineer previous to under taking the repairs, and left a balance of the ori ginal appropriation in the Treasury of $4,194 IS applicable, under the joint resolution of Con gress, of the 1st day of July, to the graduation, gravelling, and planting of Maryland avenue, under the direction of the Commissioner f Public Buildings. As soon as the repairs were completed, on the 12th of September last, the Commissioner of Public Buildings was informed of the fact by this Department, in order that be might take charge of the bridge, agreeably to the second section of the joint resolution last referred to, and apply the unexpended balance to the other ob jects before mentioned.

CITY OP NEW-ORLEANS. Correspondence «f the Courier $• Enquirer. New Orleans, Dec. 5. The division of the city of New Orleans into three municipalities or corporations, works well, as lar us improvements go; but the new s\s < of thus adniinistei irig the affairs of the people, must move very onerous to the latter, Jesuits hS a tendency to aggravate the .•x.,t.ng jealousies between the French and Amencan population. The Hall are. or alluvial soil on lie bank of the river-of which the 2d municipality is taking advantage to carry out the leree u.the water’s edti!e, and the construction of additional wharves—is suit uiesuojeciui smuuD iw... tion, between the first ami second municip.ilitus _the former claiming a right to it for tlu* bene 111 or th • whole city, and the latter claiming it as its own; and whilst some of the people of the first felt disposed to take possession by fnree «»| the spot in dispute, stopping the works on the ! levee and the wharfs, the members ot the .M municipality have shown a disposition to abide j : by the decision of the Court. The dissensions and jealousy of the old inhabitants lcmum u.ia bated. . . .. 1 | The improvements in the first muuicipaiitv, ■ better known under ttie name of (l>iar(ier Fran-. 1 cais, proceed very slowly, the old l’tench capi talists and land owners, being, if not averse, at least indifferent to all kinds of alterations and ’ improvements. There are many valuable lots j in the best streets ol this municipality, and the ! owners refuse either to sell them or to build on ! them. But few of the main streets are paveu, ; and those badly; the back streets are, ol comm*, j j in a worse condition, which shows a culpable ! indifference on the part of the Corporation to wards the health and comfort of the inhabitants., This municipality being situated in the centie» of the citv, continues to attract to its wharves a , great number of steamboats as weil as of ships. ! In tlie second municipality, or Quin tier Awe- j rican, improvements of all kinds are making on a large scale. The extensive works on the Le i vee, ”as well as the construction of additional ! wharves, are progressing. Hundreds of new j 1 houses and stores, as well as a beautiful builcins for a new Bank, and the largest hotel in the J world-St. Charles’ Hotel—are in the process of building, and will be completed early next year. The main streets are well paved, con-I tracts have been entered into to pave the new | ; ones, and the people enjoy security, cleanliness I and comfort. Many steamboats put up at the new wharves of this suburb, and most of the fiat boats will, in all probability, bring here also their immense western produce. As the principal American merchants and capitalists reside in this Ward, it bids fair to become, in a very few , years, the great entrepot of the impoits and ex ports of the city, in which expectation, many French people are moving to the 2d Municipali ty, where every thing goes ahead. In the 3*1 municipality things are nearly car ried on in the same French style as in the fii st. Two-thirds of the shipping nowin port are ly ing in front of it, and though it appears that this was the case last season, and wiil continue in all probability until the ships find accoinmoda j tion in the 2il municipality, yet but very little corresponding improvement is observed in the vicinity. There is no quarter of the town for w hich nature has done so much, and man so lit tle ns this suburb. By means of a canal in its rear to connect it with the bayou Bieiivenue, which could be constructed for the sum id $250. 000, it would be placed within six houis sail of thu Gulf of Mexico. But this is loo much mo ney for the French proprietors uf lots in this municipality. However, the hai'oor is hourly becoming more crowded with vessels from Europe, the j West Indies, Mexico and coastwise, all of them ; laden with valuable cargoes. By reference to the marine list, which I send among the slips, it will be seen that there has been a large numner 1 of arrivals since Saturday, there being besides at this moment, fourteen square rigged vessels in the Offing, which are shortly expected up. There ; is every appearance that this city will be the theatre of more business during the present sea son than in any previous one, such is the impe tus given by American capital and American enterprise. The horrid murder of Barre, by Reynolds, ; who by the by, was drunk when he committed , the fatal deed, has caused great excitement a- J ' mong the French population. A rumor circu- ( fated yesterday, that the assassin was to be | bailed out in the same manner ns Gicque), who, j about four months ago killed the unfortunate | Bruce, an American, and then made bis escape to Cuba, forfeiting a security of $13,000; but ac cording to the best information, bail to a large ’ amount was offered and refused. As in this in stance there had been no previous dispute or the , least provocation, as in the case of Gicquel, the French, in the first municipality, were to a man, j decidedly oppo-ed to the bail, so that had the | magistrate infringed the law’of the land, Rey nolds would nave been in danger of being lynch ed. Reynolds is a young man of 25 years of age, well educated and naturally of a mild dis- ! position. He was a clerk in the Achapaluya i Bank, and is the brother-in-law to James Ster- ; ret a merchant of tins city. His case is repre-1 sented by his own friends as a hopeless one. The navigation of the Missouri up to St. Lou- ; is is obstructed by ice. It appears that winter j has begun in that quarter with great severity. Fifty-five persons have put their signatures to j the subscription list for the Ocean Steam Navi* j gation Company, and the shares taken amount : already to $115,000. The New Orleans papers have published a ; memorial prepared for the pui pose of obtaining ! signatures from the citizens, calling on the Rresi- j dent to offer all the public lands in the State of Louisiana at auction. foreign arrivals are so numerous mat iu\\ people venture to buy for fear of fresh importa- j tions. If to this be added the scarcity of mo : ney and of western produce, the flat boats hav ing hardly begun to make their appearances, I , should say that business is as yet, rather flat. The trade with Mexico, formerly so profita- j hie to New Orleans, is considerably reduced: in j fact it has changed hands. Formerly it was j distributed among several merchants of this j city, but now it is entirely monopolized by the : house ofRubio at San Luis Potosi. the exclusive j importers of foreign goods in the northern Mex- ] ican States. They buy almost all their stock at the British and French manufactories, and ship it partly direct for Tampico, and New Orleans merely in transitu. Those who are ignorant of the large operations of the house ofRubio, and the facilities afforded to them in the paument of duties in Mexico, complain and throw the blame of the present stagnation in trade w ith that Re- j public, on the Texans. By the by, the time is not far distant, when most of the trade of Tam- j pico will be transferred to Matagorda, in Texas. : Three vessels have sailed from New Orleans within a fortnight for the latter port.
