MAUJHEE CITY EXPRESS.
SATURDAY, .JUNE 8. 1899. ' ThiEstihatb. It is well known to the in itiated, that there are certain very uncertain and very indefinite periods in the progress of the public works of this state, when, an estimate is taken of the quantity of work done under each contact for the carying on of such work, and a sum of money paid in " proportion to the amount of the estimate, to each of the sontractors. It is curious to observe the avidity and greediness after money that pervados the whole community on the arrival of estimate day. The contractors gather around the paymaster, like sharks following the carcase of a dead whale; each contractor has hie group of aattellitcs, that shine in his path, like the pilot fish after the shark, while each Individual irernndarv nlanct too. has his foll owers who stick to him, like barnacles to the back of the pilot fish Those who have seen an eagle pursued by hawks, the hawks by turkey buzzards, and the turkey buzzards by the king birds, can form on idea of the picking, in all its ramifications, that goes on at an estimate. - This estimate business is far from being an idle ceremony either. Tho body politic 'eels its effects, to the ends of its fingers. Business leaves its usual no-go-motive rate, and goes ahead liko a polished devil from the foundry of Norn's h Co. Some pay their debts and feel honest, and ben e buy again and let their creditors go where they please. ' Some idea may be formed of tho effect ot this process, by the common answer that is given to all sorts of questions. I say, Mr. A. when are you going to New Yorkt After estimate, sir! See here B, when are you going to run away? " i ' I'd be a fool to go beforo the estimate? Mr. C. When are you going to be mar tied? After tho estimate, sir! ' And it has even been assorted that one poor sinner, who was urged by his clerical advisor to lay up treasures in heaven as soon . as possible, gave a grunt, rolled over with . his face to the wall, and told him plainly, that he could'nt make tho deposits until af ter the estimate. ' Borrowing Nnwnrxrnu9.--Little Quoen Victoria seems to be sadly infected with this prevailing sin of the age. She has re quested one of her friends to lend her the New York Mirror regularly. We rather guess they don't make as extensive ap' propriations for nowspapcrs in Great Brit ain as they do in this country. The Buffalo Commercial and the Journal have been consolidated. We hope the Pat riot and Journal, (for so is the paper now calledwill partake more of the character of the former than of the latter. I he Com' mercial was as good a paper as could be found in any country, and came nearer to our ideas of what a paper should he, than any other we know of. The late change of officers in the state of Now York has opened a new field for newspaper warfare one that nothing but the sharp-sightcdncss of locofoeo demagog- ism could have discovered. This new bat tle ground is the canal. If the water breaks " from the channel and overflows its banks, the whig government is to blame; if a bo( is more than the regular number of days in making her trips, the whigs are in fault, and if by chance a slight informality can be discovered in- the ' papers of a boat, it is strait way detected by some democratic clerk who is providentially retained in office for that purpose, and the whole slate rings with the cry of 'raisrulo and corruption,' .Bah! . .. The people of. Albany have given their aeBent to the law of the last legislature au thorizing the corporation of that city to subscribe $100,000 to the stock of the Al bany and West Stockbridgc railroaa. A story is going the rounds of the loco foco papers, stating that . the whigs have Bade the Hon. Daniel Webster a present of 65,000 dollars to pay his debts, and ena ble him to visit Europe this summer. The story looks very much like a lie. Old Nick appears to be playing all sorts of pranks in New Orleans. Indeed, the Le ree seems to a domain over which he prc- Hiuca 111 jwieun, wiui .uiuia mull viumuij' diligence. Could his sooty majesty become palpable to mortal eye, he would no doubt be found sitting on the summit of some tall building", overlooking his favorite province, gazing with grins of peculiar delight at the pranks of his lioge subjects, now and then linking his long tail into a. noose, dropping , it skilfully over the head of some distin guished operator, and ushering him . unan nounced into his august presence to receive new lesson in his favorite art of doing the skientfics in the best possible' manner. The last New .Orleans papers con'.aih ac pounts of several murders; frays enough to surfeit all the old, ' women in Christen dom; pocket pickings innumerable, and do- ' t'ng? ofall kinds, from jiinple swindling, to the most profoundly complicated operation . t that widely diversified sience. , ' . ' , AaoaioiNii Philosofht. On' the day of the hurricane, Judge Forsyth of this place had been holding council with the Ot tawa? Indians, with a view, (o induce them 4o emigrate beyond the Mississippi, a thing Mt much to their liking. At the commence ment of the storm, several of the chiefs were standing in a group in front of the Judge's store, when the lightning struck a storehouse also belonging to the same gen tleman, on the opposite corner, shattering it jprjr much, and throwing the pieces in ail directions. The Indians surveyed the building, with mush composure, for a few moments, when, one of them turning to the Judge with an emphatic grunt informed him that the Great Spirit was very angry at him for trying to got the poor Indians a ay from their good home to go west of the Mississippi, and had struck the store to let him know it, and he hoped he would try to do so no more. . After the Hotel Building fell, w paid a visit to the ruin. In front of what was Mr. Nitchie's store, stood Otokcc, head chief of this portion of the tribe, looking on while several of his followers wore helping to car ry away the goods from tho building. "Wah!" said Otokee. white man make too much shantcc burst him. The Indian guessed right; the ehanteo was decidedly too much it burst. The editor of the Toledo Blade who Bcenis to have elected himsolf arbiter eleganti unt over the country round about the Maumce river has taken exceptions to cer tain expressions in our paper of Inst week contained in an article animadverting upon the character of John Khooks by courtesy captain, ot the Vermillion steamboat. The sensitive gentleman is informed, that the dangerous and indelicate phraso he proba bly alludes to, is a quotation (though by in advertence, not marked as such) from an author of whom he has possibly never heard one William Shnkospoar, by whom it was applied to a character as obese, though not half swinish as the fallstnifian animal whose gratuitous advocate he nml.es him self. The editor would have done himself more credit, if he had been employed in as certaining the truth or falsity of the charges which we published against tho bloated crea ture of guzzling and gastronomy, than ho has bvcavailing at the language in which wo clothed our ideas while ho tacitly admits the statements to he true. Tine they un doubtedly are, and wr. can prove. them nark that; wo stand ready to do it! mark that ton; and if John .S'hooks or his allor my feels aggrieved, let them make a legal issue of the mutter as soon as possible, and tlioy shall have proof rs damning as even the bullying captain can reasonably desire. We have just as our paper is going to press returned from a trip to Cleveland, and of course have little time or room; next week, we intend to show up the character of one of the great captains of Luke Erie. It is reported on creditablo authority, that, during tho great storm that swept over us, two weeks ago, several gcntlomon of this town saw a man, whom one of them recognised as Mr. Espy, with broomstick in hand, and something that looked like u rope dangling from beneath the tail of his coat, playing the very deuce among the clouds ovcrhiad. 8011101111108 he would sweep them up in gre it black musses, as high os a pyra mid, then, with a single dash of his broom would he sculter them liku a herd of wild horses, in all directions through the skies, he, all, the tiino w histling as if determined to get upabreezc in spite of the refusal of Congress to raise the wind fir him.

TEN DAYS LATEK FROM EUROPE: ARRIVAL OF TUB ORKAT WESTKRN: IIR INHTATKMENT OT THE OLD BRITISH MIN- ISTRT. At S. o'clock on Saturday morning, the Groat Western arrived, in thirteen days from Bristol. Hy her we have London im- pers to the 17th ultimo, and Liverpool of llie same date. 1 lie lateness ot the hour at which we received our papers prevents our giving more than a mere sketch of their Contents. ' Sir Robert PceJJias received the com mands of tho Queen to form a new minis try but, after a few days trial, he found that there was no chance to form ono that would, command the confidence , ot the people... At the outset a diflercnco touk place with the Queen, It resulted in the Queen sending for Lord Melbourne, who with bis coadjutors were reinstated. The House had adjourned to the I7th May. c ' : In the House of Lords On the 14lh Ma'v. Lord Melbourne rose for the purpose of ex planations witn regard to the late ministe rial proceedings,' and having corroborated the statement of Sir Robert Peel, his lord ship concluded as follows: . "My lords, there are many accusations to which 1 am 'exceedinirly callous. There are some, however which I feel deeply. 1 mil iiiseusiuie 10 an ooservaiions respect ing tenacity -of office, and desire of nlace. and to any imputation of . being actuated by motives either of ambition or-avarice. -1 resigned my office, not because I was aban doned by those who usually supported me, but because there had arisen among them a certain amount of doubt, which fed me to suppose that I could not any longer con duct the government either with honor to myself or advantage to the country, and I now frankly declare that I resume office solely because I will not abandon my sover eign in a situation of difficulty and distress, when demands am made on her which she ought not to comply with demands which are inconsistent with her personal honor, and which, if acquiesced in now, would es tablish a preccd ;nt which would render her liable, during tho remainder of her reign, to all the variations of party politics, and would mako tier domestic lite one continued scene of discomfort and iinhappincss. A serious insurrection broke out at Paris on the ISth May, which caused much alarm in the capital, and tho effusion or much blood. Marshal Gerard had taken the com mand of the Garrison. ' The British Utiecn was to sail from Ports mouth on the 1st July. Lite ikoi Fiunch and England, By the packet shin Burgundy, captain Rockett, announced Friday from Havre, we have received Paris loiirnals to the Dili and Havre to the 'Jill ultimo. In the latter we found a small slip of paper on which was stamped "Telegraphic despatch. The British Ministry has resigned en masse, on a minority ol 0 on Jamaica. This important news is fully confirmed by the London Times of tho Olh, one of which papers was brought by a passenger in the Burgundy, and for the use of which we are indebted to tho olhce ol the Ameri can. By the oxtracts we give below, it will bo Been that on the preceding day, Viscount Melbourne, the Prime Minister, announced to the House of Lords, and Lord J. Kussell, the Secretary of tho Home Department, to the House of Commons, that the Ministers had tendered their resignation to the Queen, and that she had accepted it. Tho immedi ate cause assigned by them is tho small ma jority of live which they ob'.nined on the Jamaica Hill, to winch we alluded yester day, but there wore no doubt other reasons. For some time past it has been very evident Mint IJinv hphl ,il hen nt thn n ensure nr I he I 'I'm v imrlv. The Radical members, or the Itoman Catholic members, for the number of either of tho two latter parties, added to the Tory vote, was sufficient to place them in a minority; and although the Whig Min istry were willing to go all lengths to con ciliate the Roman Catholics, they very gen erally avowed their determination to oppose the ultra measures of the reform called for by the Radicals. The Queen will no doubt, have great dif ficulty to form a ministry which will com mand a larger support in tho House of Commons; and, it is not ptobalilc, that a dissolution of that body, and a new election would produce any material change in its political complexion. Tho Tory party is not stronger than tho Whig parly proper, and is still less able to conciliate the two minor parties. Lord Durham, Lord Nor mandy, and Lord Brougham, may, one, or all of them, perhaps patch up a M nistry with somo of the members of the late Cab inet, which would last for a time. All the speculations entertained in Paris on the formation of a ministry had been falsified. No cabinet was yet formed, nor would the construction of any' be again at tempted until after the debate in the Cham ber of Deputies on a motion of M. Man guin, (the celebrated barrister and deputy;) the object of that motion being for an ad dress to the king, praying his majesty in stantly to appoint, a ministry. Hitherto the king had not been able to recognise tho government according to his own wish, although he had prevented every combination which the opposition proposed for reconstructing it on their plan. It was believed, however, that the impending dis cussion (of the question just alluded to) would demonstrate that the parties compris ed in the coalition were not well bound to gether, and that in the division in the Cham ber on the subject, so much of disunion a- lining them would become apparent as In justify his majesty in proposing a fusion of 'the centres," as they are termed; the ef fect of which would bo to ensure a mnjori ly sufficient for carrying on the public bu siness. To a cabinet so formed the king would ot courso muko no concession, so that he would have achieved his great ob ject, unit ol ruling absolute; because a ministry such as that wc speak of would ex ercise no control over him. Although the opposition journalists com plained loudly of the state in which the country had been kept without a ministry, and of the irreparable waste of time that had occurred since the opening of the Chambers, (on the 17th Docomberlast,) we cannot find evidence in the papers or let ters before us of any species of discontent among the public on the subject. Never did Francs display on its surface, at least, more perfect calm than at the date of those let tcrs and jou rnals. 1 1 is true that some of our private communications speak ot the continued existence of secret societies, and of the iinrclaxed efforts of tho republicans to bring over the army and the country to tneir parly; nut there does not appear any ground for believing that the people, gener ally speaking, occupied themselves with pilitic.i.or that the army attended to thcox- hortations of the disaffected. In the ex hausted state of tho public mind the king might reckon upon tho acceptance of any government he might think proper to name, and upon tlie adoption ol nearly every meat' ure ho desired to carry. The great proba bility is, therefore, that our next letters will state that he had appointed a government exactly to his own taste, which would car ry through the session that is procure the supplies leaving undone every other mat ter requiring the interference of the legisla ture. ' j The weather had become magnificent in France. A fine harvest was, therefore, an ticipated, yet tho price of bread had not fallen. Tho receipts of the savings' banks once more exceeded tlie payments by ally per cent, yet the distress of the lower class of traders was increasing. .The number of bankrupts was daily augmenting, ,but being sman snopKeopcrs or manuiacturcrs only no -very groat sensation was produced by them. The government alarmed for the consequences of any general want of em ployment for the people, had ordered that the number ot bands employed on all tho public works be multiplied. Thus it will be sunn, that although no positive amelioration had taken place, the difficulties of the coun try jvcro not absolutely enhoncod, and that the domestic prospect was rather cheering man ouicrwiee.. - . Appearances abroad were not immediate- My menacing, but in more than one quarter iiiey were somewnai gloomy. The Uelgic question was absolutely at rest France seemed on the best terms with the Holy Al liancebut there was a sort of coldnoss perceptible in the connexion and intercourse of France and Great Britain, that spoke to the fears .of those whose views went be yond the present moment. - It was admit ted, on all hands, that England regarded the occupation of Algiers and its dependen cies by the French with an evil eye. The resumed activity or nei el reader was, therefore, occasioning uneasiness, lest it ter minate in a renewal of his resistance to French domination, which might by some chance or other commit Great Britain in his support Those chances are however too remote to entitle them to consideration. In the event of a war between England and France, (indeed so long as the former shall have the empire of the seas,) the Arab may be always expected to break through thb treaty he has concluded with the latter but notwithstanding the coolness we have just remarked, and in spite of other circumstan ces to which we shall presently refer, there is no reason for anticipating an early quar rel between those nations. The most recent intelligence from Con stantinople ( 17th April) spoko of the con tinued preparations of the Porto for war, (with llehcniet Ali, no doubt, for no other enemy presented itself.) On his side, the viceroy of Egypt was already in a condition to re-commence hostilities, with every pros pect or rather every certainty of success. Tho policy of England and France, howev er, would not suffer that war to be renewed between the sultan and his vassal, so that there was also no real danger for the mo ment existing. In Persia the English began to experience better treatment, and to feel a return of confidence, which induced them to forward large orders for goods to Eng land. This improvement was not, howev er, the result of any alteration in the Bhah's real feelings, but of apprehension on his part. I lis ambassador to the court of Lon don had not vet left Paris, as he had rcceiv ed on intimation through Lord Granville, that ho would not be received. Ho specu lated, however, upon an alteration in the views of tho Mritish government, when it should become known, as he said it would, that the shah was disposed to make to Groat Britain every required concession. The English and the Russians were appa rently, once more, on good terms; but dis trust ol the littler was, whether just or un just, so general in England, that all the ami cable professions of the Emperor w ere dis credited. The Imperial Crown Prince, his son, had been during several months travel ling in the smith of Europe. He proposed visiting England, but received in Holland an order lo the effect thai he must not follow up that intention although he had arrived so near to England as tho Hiigue, Alarmed for the consequences of this airront, the Em peror Nicholas suddenly changed his mind, and despatched by a cabinet messenger per mission for his imperial highness to proceed forthwith to London, where (as our Loudon letters show) he arrived on tho 4th ult. A truce may tbereforo bo said to havo been agreed upon between those powers, fur in I1 ranee it was not believed that real feelings of confidence and mutual good will had been restored or existed. Tho English were, us our London Idlers show, increasing their naval force, and hud directed that their Le vant fleet quit Smyrna, in order to observe that of the Russians, (as indeed had the French licet also.) These facts indicate only precaution, however. "Observation," although irksome, is not an act at which Russia can take oll'ence. The English were, wo should add, actively pushing the commu nications with India through Egypt, regard less of tho jealousy of Russia. She thus displays distrust and daring, which are not nevertheless likely to ho resumed, so that, unless Borne unforeseen incident embrace Ihcm, there appears no present likelihood of a wnr between Russia and England. Aitairs in Spain bad undergone no altera tion. I'.spartcro and Moroto had respective ly made some movements, but nothing of unporiiinee resulted irom lliom. The opin ion still remained (notwithstanding tho fai'- ure oi m. juen uermutlcz in his mission to the courts of Berlin nnd Austria,! that on ainicunie arrangement was on the tapis Or: the whole, Ihorefore, tho stale of Franco is satisfactory. That of the rest of I'.urope suggests no fears for the iminedi- ato or very speedy interruption ol the statu quo. Tho French Funds had improved, hut the shares in joint stock undertakings, with the exception ol the Gi! Lajilie, had not im proved in any se nsible degree. Correspondence of the Savannah Georgian. LATEST FROM FLORIDA. . Caret's Ferry, May 14, lj:!9. Dear Sir Every thing is going on well and smoothly in the negocialion line; and in a very short time, I expect to be ahlo to apprise you ot the successful termination of Gen Macomb's mission. Col. Harney arrived from the south a few days ogo, bringing with a very important chief of tho iUickasukio tribe: ho with fourteen oth ers, como into Col. It., whilo on tho south ern coast, and siys the Indians arc anxious for peace, and will gladly accedo to the General's terms. " Gen. Jones (Sam.) says if he comes in, it will be after peace is made and every thing settled. Cuacuochce entertains and expres ses the same opinion. Soveral Indians have also visited the General, at Fort King, and promised to bring in more. Murders com mitted by straggling parties of Indians may still be heard of, but as soon as the news of our wish to make peace is known at all, no danger even of this kind is to be appre hended. From JY. Orleans True American. Atrocious Vim-ant. We find a print ed narrative of cold blooded and heartless atrocity, in the last Galveston Gazette. - It developes some of the' darkest shades that blacken human nature: " ' Lite in May or early in Juno, 1837, five or six young men occupied the same bed room one night, at the boarding house of Mrs. Mann, at Houston. In the morning, one of tho number, Chauncey Goodridge, missed a one thousand dollar bank note from his pocket-book, and on the announc ing the fact, and after it had been intimated that some one of the lodgers was suspect ed, he was called upon tospecify the person upon whom his suspicion rested. After some hesitation he designated a Mr. Law rence, a young man (rom the city of New York, of great respectability, and to whom M. M. Noah had been, or perhaps was then, guardian, for we boliove he had not attained his slst year. The consequence was that a challenge was passed byLaw ronce; the parties met and he (L.) was kil led. C. M. Stanley, who had been ono of the lodgeis where the theft occurred, acted as tho second of Lawrence and saw him shot. Stanley remained at Houston thro' tho summer, during which lime he was sick, represented himself to bo in destitute circumstances, and borrowed, small sums of money trorn time to tune to. defray his ex penses. In November, he went to Mr. Dos well, who was about 10 leave for New Oileans, and gave him a thousand dollar bank bill, with instructions to bring out the amount in goods. Doswell's suspicions were excited, and on his return hp mention ed the circumstance to Maj, Holuian, who had seen- the note in the hands of Law rence, and, from the -description, belicvod that sent by Stanley to be the same. Dr. NilesF. Smith, is acquainted with all the circumstances, knew the destitute condition of Stanley rendered him pecuniary assist ance: and strongly believes in his guilt. I; tne mean time, poor Goodridge, stung,, jy remorse at the death of Lawrence, berime almost a madman, screaming out duri jg the night so as to alarm the whole ho'jse, and raving of circumstances inceswiitly. Ha gave way to dissipation and i: a miserable condition wandered to San Antonio, where ho quarreled and had an affray with a gam bler named Allen. Afterward the gambler stole upon him and shot him in his bed, and then plunged a Bowie knife through him so as to pin him to his ma tress. Thus two promising young mon prema turely and miserably ended their lives, while Stanley, the cause, as these circum stances strongly go to prove, of their ruin, pursued his way, to all appearances, as calmly as if nothing had happened. - Stanley is at present in custody, having been arrested on tho charge of stealing $501) of Mr. Grimes nt Houston. He was taken at the mouth of the Sabine, by Sheriff Wil son of this county. No prosecution can take placo for the theft suspected, to have taken place upon Goodrich, as the time has past since upon the commission of the of fence in which the lo requires that an in dictment should be found. We understand that he restored Grimes his money, and we fear that ho will he prosecuted with less vigor than his conduct demands, as Grimes has been upon friendly terms with him, and believed in his innocence when he was sus pected by others. " Htanloy is the son of the ex-governor of Carolina oi tnat name, and has had a broth er in tho Amorican Congress for several years. The family is of tho best standing but we learn that he has been a renegade for several years. We forbear any further romarks until the present prosecution shall have terminated.

Huron Com. Mo. From Florida. Our latest accounts from Florida, we uro sorry to say, are any thing but consoling to the patriot or the philanthropist. In the Peusacola Gazette of the 11th inst., we find the following par agraph: " Tun Suminom! War. No hopes seejn to be any longer ciitcrtainod that the em bisay of General Macomb to the Seminoles will end in any thing bonelicial. Lieuten ant Reynolds, who passed through this placo last week on his way from Tampa Bay, biings intelligence that the chief on whose good officers Genoral Macomb chiefly relied, has not only refused to treat, but bus betaken himself and all his peoplo to the woods.- Tho truth is, they consider the whites lo have been badly whipped, and it is nearly the time that wo should lake the same view of llie matter. Tho language thuy now use is, ' Lot us nlono and wo will not molest you remain at your posts or your homos, and wo Will not attack you but ifyou make war on us, wo will light as long as our amunition latls, and when this is gone wo will tako to tho bow and ar row.' A TRAUItDIAN TURNKD 1RRAC'I1ER. The Louisville Theatre was lately crowded to excess to witness Ccarles B. Parson's cele brated performance of Othello when the manager came forward and announced that there could be no performance that evening, in consequence of the surprinsig convertioii of Mr. Parsons under Mr. MaffU's preaching. The' audience was very indignant and quite a number of young people ran into Mr. Mu Ilk 'a meeting house nnd commenced crying "Othello!" "Othello! ' so loud that that Mr. Matlit stopped his sermon. Immediately Mr. Parsons wallod in to the broad aislo and pronounced in the most emphatic manner "Othello's occupa tion's gone!" and then proceeded to say tliut "A change had como ovor the spirit of his dream;" he had "fretted his brief hour upon the stage of Thospis and henceforth should "perforin" in the House of Prayer and lcmpleof Zion; ho liad left the "sock and; hllHkin" fiir l.bo mvnnl nnrl lielmnl nf flr.l.t- I eousucss, and that, instead of lighting nuattspcare s niimic uaities lie should here after fight under the Cross of Jesus Christ and, finally, he exhorted his old comrades to romain with him and leave the Theatre to become the abode ot bats. The papers say it was Charley's best performance and that his thrilling eloquence will win him twenty fold laurels in holy orders when compared with the stage. Chicago Jim. Thb Stuvens Case. Tho Pennsylvania Legislature has refused to admit Stevens to a seat in that body, and the speaker has is sued his writ for a new election in Adams county. , This discussion was placed upon the ground, that Sltvene' letter to his con stituents, of last winter, and .his subsequent aDseiicefromthoIIonfe, amounted to a re signation. We cannot say that this deci sion is according to law, but wo boliove it is in accordance with common senso. Will the people re-elect the miscreant?-. YVe hope not.. His treasonable conduct has been of incalculable detriment to the State, both in a moral and pecuniary point of view, and his power to do further mischief should be annulled.

It is said that she was visited by about six thou sand persons during tho sixteen or eighteen days she was in that harbor, nnd a majority of tho -visitors were ladies.

She is Sag ship of the Pacific squadron, and has an apart ment erected aft. on her spar deck, for the accommodation of the commodore. -Phil. World. ' . , We regret to learn that William J.nir- gett, Esq.;-late editor of tho Evening Post, and lecently appointed agent of the Unitod, Stales to Guatemala, died jn Wednesday evcninir. at his l-ffsildnnofl al. New Uochelle. . . ... . We are requested to state, for the infor mation of his friends, that his funeral will take place at NewRochelle on Saturday, at 4 o'clock, P. M., and that a steamboat will leave Market street wharf, at' the foot of Market st. East River, for Ne RochelleV at 12 o'clock, on that day and return to the city tho same evening. ... , . Str amboat Arrangement. We under stand that an arrangement.which has been in contemplation among owners of steamboats upon the Lakes, has been at length entered into, to do away with the cutting under of fare and rates of freight. The plan , as we understood , is something like this. The boats are each assessed at a certain number of shares, varying according to their esti mated value for the season. An uniform rule of pricos has been adopted to which oach is bound to adhere, and to render its accounts monthly to a committee which has been chosen. The profits of all are to be divided to the shares, each boat, receiving, of course, according to the number at which it is ruted. The number of shares, accord ing to tho original plan, was about 1000. Tho management of tho boats remains with tho agent or owners as before. Two boats only, the Illinois and North America, do not come into tho Bystem. There has been, no doubt, a kind of com petition among the boats, which was more injurous to the owners, that beneficial to the travelling public. Whether this is tho best remedy, time will show.

The Montreal Herald oftho 18th inst., intimates that another re bellion is on point of breaking out in the country of L'Acadie. The Herald says: On Thursday morning several loyal fami lies from La Tortu and the Burrounding country arrived in town, in consequence of tho threats to which they have lately been subjected by the rebels, and the fears on tertaincd that their lives were in danger Among the number is Mr. Vitty, who was sovorely wounded when Mr. Walker was killed at the breaking out of tho rebellion last year. Tho third act in 'the tragedy of Lower Canadian rebellion has now com menced, nnd we doubt not. it will terminate as tho previous ones have, in the discomfi ture of the rebels, but at a much greater sac- rilico oi in c anu property. A Loco Foco organ says in a glorifica tion article, over the result of the late New York charter election " Whiggery has given its lost kick." No; it will give another in November lS'10, which will project a " certain north ern man with southern principles" into the district Of KlMlllRKOOK. We regret to loivrn that the wheat crops in the south west part of this state, which a few days since promised so fair, have been materially damaged, and in some instances nearly destroyed, by the Hessian Fly This insect has heretofore done considera ble damage to the crops at the east, but we believe this is the first appearance in this tcction of the country. Monroe Gaz. A man in England has commenced the education of boos, wasps ond other inocts said lo have a peculiar talents. We should imagine so if ho succeeds. He's got one swarm so they will luavo a piece of honey comb and settle on his head. Nothing sta ted about their ever taking tho comb with them. Did any body ever know of such weather in May! We have been half chilled for the last two days. Talk about heat in New Or leans!

The e is no prettier sight in tho world than a young lady, simply and dctrantly dressed, standing in twilight in the door of a neat houso which looks out upon a garden.
