Among the numerous visiters waa a noble hearted jolly tar, who after having wandered about for aome . time, viewing the rich and varied articles of eiibiiion, suddenly came to the table of a lovely and rich young Udy, when Jack, after viewing the table and eyeing the lovely damsel, could icfiain no long er, and said to a friend near by, "I would give twen ty dollais to kis that girl,'' n so mer said than done "You may," said the young lady, timidly stepping forward, and receiving a sweet kiss.

To got possession re course was had under a writ of Quo Warranto. Before the termination of that process, most of the gentlemen elected on the stockholders' ticket de clined serving, and to mke up a full Board, it was deemed expedient to retiin tho sit gentlemen herein first namrd. The Bosrd under the nrw ar rangement went into operation on the 6th February last. Messrs. Anthony S. Morris and Jno. Dickson Were elected since that period, but the latter has re signed. The Board acted with great unanimity until the question was agitated of the propriety of bringing Mr. Leia back from Paris. This question arose nn a communication fro in out Minister, General Cass. A diversity of opinion existed as to the expediency of such a course. When this Wss determined in the sffirmative, a difficulty arose a to who would be that committee. Every member was solicited, and ull positively declined serving nn the mission. From appearances it wss evident tho object of the resolution would be defe&teJ, and on Thursday evening, 87. h May, I agreed to accept the trust with the unanimous approbation of the Board, and embarked on board the British Queen, 1st June, with the underbuilding that the tho ex pensea of the mission should be defrayed by the Institution. An appropriation Waa made accord ingly. I reached Puris on the 17th June, and im mediately commenced the discharge of my duty and after frequent interviewa and conversations with Mr. Levis in rofcren -e to the ohj- ct in view, I received written answers to all the questions sub mitted, and an aftiJavit made by Mr. L.evie to tho same. These were certified to under tho seal of tho American Consul, Mr. Brent, in all, I think, eleven pages of paper. This document accompanied with my report made on the 14th August, was read and adopted. In the conclusion of my report, I stated I had shipped Mr. Ievis on board the ship Scotia, Capt. Welch, for Baltimore, which vessel sailed on the 30th July from Liverpool, five days previous to my departure per Great Western, and might sjoii be expected to arrive, and requested that aftor so great a racrificc of time &c. I had made, and secu red the object contemplated, that in justice aom' other mcm'.ier of the Board should succeed mo and be a committee to receive Mr. Ijvis on his orrival at Baltimore. Eveiy memlier refused to give his assistance in this service. Daring my absonco from the Bank, perhaps the next staled meeting uf the Board, 18th August, a resolution was passed impo sing upon me a continuation of this unpleasant Betievinx there was opposition from a certain quarter to Mr. Levis' return, and threats of r sonet violence L' I persisted in my course, appra hensive of a rescue, I addressed a letter to the Pre sident, which was read after much opp sition and Cnal'y by its being moved and seconded, that the communication luy oil the table. Next meeting, 28th August, I stated the resolution, and parsed 18lh August utidor which the Board requeued mo to act, was without character and of no fleet, and in order to make it available off red end read a preamble and resolution. These were seconded by a member and immediately recalled. It was deci ded by the President that it was out of order and refused taking any further motion on the preamble and resolution. Being unwilling to shrink from sny duty imHsed upon me, and standing alone in this matter, I proceeded to Baltimore and submitted to eminent counsel Ihe resolution of the 1 8th Aueur', under which I acted and requested his written an swer. Knowing mat I was witnoui auinori'y 10 control Mr. Levis and his arrival daily expected, I iminediati ly returned to Ihe city, and next mornin Monday, requested a Fpccial meeting of the Board no notice of which was tik n. Next day, Tuva Jay, at a stated meeting of ll.e Board, I lead in my pluce a Report of my proceedings. This w?s not st condi-d, couseqoently no action on it, other than much exciU'iu-nt and feeling wus displayed, snd was told I had exoeed d my authority in asking Counsel, and was moved that I bo charg d with tho foe paid, and that my verbal imlruciions were to proceed to Baltimore, and meet Mr. Levis on his arrival, I quotx their own words, as several mem bers responded to the chsir, " aud lay Mr. Levi i passed i 18th August, stating from the facta disclosed by Mr Levis to me, and communicated in my report to the Board, that it is inexpedient to pursue. Mr Levis any further, and furnish me with a copy, so that tho Board may assume the responsibility of the act, I shall persist in my course and bring Mr. Levis to this city under tho resolution, relying m ro upon the promise made me by Mr. Levis in Liv- r ool, that he would return to Phil d lphia, than the effi cacy of the resolution of the 18tb August, under which I nomina ly octed. I proceeded again to Baltimore on tho evening of the 1st instant, and next morning Mr. Brobson delivered me a letter with the enclosure, the president still refusing to do what wss cssentinf in the case, and as he waa ad vi- fcJ per Mr. Loyd, and would have carried into ef fect Ihe resolution of the 1 8th Aagu-t. An imme diate answer was returned. My great ambition Martin, the French Prophet. Tho story pf Martin is not yet introduced into English lileraluie ; but deserves a small apace in tho retforda of curiosities. Pmphots are generally most esteemed some hundred or thousind years af ter they die. Joan of Arc was regsidid as a witch when she liv. d ; but now, she is canonized, and become a fixed star in the firmament of inspiration. Mirtin's stoiv is a species of ublic document. It was investigated by Decucs, the Minister of Polico, in and officially reported and the Prophet j himself was introduced by the Mn'quis of Roche fouciult, to I ouis the 18th, who was so much nf feotcd with what he said, thnt he never cou'd con sent to his own coronation. Martin told him that he wss not the legitimate heir ; and, as nn videnc' of his mission, he told bim that he, (Louis 18th) had onee a design upon his brother Louis 16th's life, in the forest of St. Hubert ; that he had a double-barrelled gun in his hand, and meant to shoot the king, his brother with one barrel, and fire the other in the air, and represent it as a dou' lo at tempt against himself and tho king ; but that he b. came entangled in Ihe branch of a tree, when the king was passing. When Louis ISih hiMid this from Martin, ho wept and confessed th truth ; but charged bim lo keep silence upon it. Martin wm strictly watched ever after, and even thoe who had any previous correspondence with hirn, were bas'i Iv removed Irom his neiuhl'oihood. His rurnto was sent to snolhi r parish. Tho prefect of Ohortics, was removed to another prefecture; and Lo Sieur Andre, lieutenant of Gen iTarmcs, who had con ducted Martin ro Paris, was transferred to a distant sta ion. The promises which Ihe king lnado to Martin were all broken : snd the only advice of the prophet w lib h ho followed wits, "Vrciuz g.mle a voiu fnirt nrre,earsi vou k tenltz, tviu sertz his ears and nostrils. His friends say he Wss strangled, but all judicial inquiry waa checked, and the death, as w II ae Ihe life of Martin remains a mystery, H is prophecies chiefly refer to another great po litical revolution in France, and a reformation of tho Catholic Church j and they are not very pala table to those who raise thcmwlvce to distinction by corruption and oppression. Had Martin lived in Palestine 3,000 years sgo, he would have been murder d first, and afterwards ranked amongxt the prophets. "Tho fathers killed tho prophets, and the sons built their sepulchres." was in consequence of the Bosrd having tcfuwd to frtippe dc rnort pcuhinl la ceremonie du serc' assist mo in tho discharge of a duty thnt I should have a triumph over litem by intro 'unrig Mr. L. - vis to them in the Bank, on Monday morning, to iheir confusion and dismay. In this particular Mr, Levis thought propir not to comply with the pledge given at the moment of our separation on Saturday night. On Monday mnrniog I notified the Dank of Mr. Levis' arrival in thia city. The fact of the arrival of Mr. Levis at Baltimore was known here on Saturday aftcrno n in time to have adopted means for srrest, if desired. In the course of Mon day I sent in my resignation as a Director of the Bank, quite desirous of quitting an institution for whose benefit I labored with much teal, without much prospect of success, for thoco who honored me with their confluence. WM. NEWELL. The lost lliblc fouud. Mot of our readers have seen historical uotices of the misfortunes of the family of the Rev. Mr. Caldwell of New Jersey, in ihe revolutionary war. Mr. C. was pastor of tho presbyterian church at Etizjlethtown, and like most of tho clergy of thai church, at thnt time, was a aealous whig. His ac tivity against the Brili-h, made him a mark for their vengeance, and in one of their frequent incursions into that neighborhood, when he was from home, a comp iny of soldiers surrounded his dwelling, and one of them deliberately levelled his mukct at Mrs. Caldwell, while on her kneca at prayer, and fired, killing her instantly. The party then retreated, carrying o'ff several articles of plunder, and among tbem Mr. Caldwell's family bible. Not long ago, and more than sixty year after the event wc have I een recording, an old woman living on Long Is Innd, called on one of the grandchildren of Mr. Caldwell, at Morri.town, N. J. and presented this identical bible, containing the family record as made by Mr. C. in his own hsnd writing then the toco id as made by the soldier who stolo it ( and varum i memoranda by subecqueut posrtuor. IVitny Postage lit EuIuml. From the official tablos published in the London Morning Chronicle, it appears that under tho old ratoa in 1837, the number of chirgeablo letters wus 64,923,830, and the revenue 3,274,923. Und'r the uniform rate of four pence in 1839 ihe number of such letters was 98,05 1 ,270, and the revenne 1,640,160 ; thus exhibiting an increase of loiters "Beware of having yourself crowned, lor if you d, you will be struck dead during the ceremony." This was somewhat too serious for the old g nth man, am he though; It moro prudent not to run the rirk. The following letter from the Marquis of Roche foucsult lo Madame du Cayla on the subject, is contained in the "Memoirs de M. Sosthenes do la Rochibucult, aide de camp da Charles X Paris, 1837." "About this period (1816) a very extra, ordinary circumstance, of which I shall hcreaf er speak more in detail, waa the subject of general in I res(. A man named Martin, simple, without edu cation, of a perfectly regular life, respected and ho nored by all who know him, was, accordiug to his own report, suddenly struck with a vision, and the apparition of an angel. He declared that he heard dii-tincily a voice, which gnve him a mission to the king, (Louis IS,) and promised at the same time, a sure means of compelling his majesty lo believe his vcraci'y. At first he hesitated, but his doubts at last giving way, he commenced his journey.

"I am assured," he suid to me, '-that I have only to oley, and all will bo wt II.

After having questioned, aud rross-questioned the man, struck with wli it I saw, und with what ho told me, astonish' d above all ut his simplicity, his faith, aud his tranquility, I returned lo Paris, determined to demand an au dience of the king, which wus immediately granted me ; Martin was admitted a f-w days after, au l what I can well attest (you know it madam, as well as myself,) is that tho king was remarkably struck with one thing that Martin told him, a thing, added ihe king, that no one could know but heaven ai.d himself. Martin refused money which was of fered him. He accepted only fif.eeu francs, to pay the eienses of his journey. Since that time, he hs resumed his ordinary life, he has expericuced FItlCT OF lIM I UlIsnfJ, I square I insertion, I do S do 1 do S da WESTERN COURT OF JUSTICE.
