The following extracts are from Miss Sedgwick's rticle in tho Democratic Review : "We have some forty steerage passengers.

They are both shy and irely ; and I observe in them what I have often iiserved in English people of their condition, an iicertainty as to their relative position, and an iicpiiottios that is ready to break forth into pre- jinption and insolence.

'Yes God forgive me I remember," replied John, "but indeed, ma'am, the little place was so stifled with shrubs and flowers, and the like, that one could not set down a tree without killing them with the shade of it. There wero more flowers clustered under our windows than you can find un all (he big farms in Ohio. It will be a long day, ma'am, before your country will look like old Eng land." I too had my preferences, and my aching longing for home, and therefor I the more respected the old man's, and the less wondered that he was going home in despite of s.11 tho excellent reasons the political economist might have given him for re maining hi our flourished land. I should be very apt, like them, to go home, if but to die amid old familiar things.- i While we were talking with the old pair, there was a tall, haggard man, with uncomlied hair and a death-like paleness, stalking up and down in the nanow and encumbered space on the forward deck, as if all the world were indeed stage, and he the only player. I could find out nothing from his fel low passengers, but that this had been the way of his going on ever since we embarked, that he is muttering to himself sleeping and walking and that he drinks more than he eats." Our gossip stewardess has given me some fur ther particulars of the man who excited my curiosity last evening, lie is an Englishman, and has been a thriving carpenter in New York. He came on hoard in fit of madness, compounded of jealonsy and alcohol. This has, in a degree, aulwided, but he is still incessantly murmuring something of his wrongs, at one moment sweating to return and murder his wife and her lover, and then remember ing he has all his money with him, resolving he will leave them, as the stewardess elegantly ex presses it, "to starve it out together." "Their love or their life, stewardess !" "Their love their love, ma'am, such love is short-lived, any way ; but I think the poor man wrongs her and himself; it's tho delirium tremens the poor fellow has, and that mnkes him conceit everything. Un wifd followed him to the ship beg ging him to go home with her an innocent pretty woman, and she sat on an old box on the cud of the whaif, with her baby in her arms, and the tears streaming down her cheeks, looking most desolate like, he swearing and stamping till the mate stop ped him, and shut him down below." "Well, our Othello has finished hs dream not thrown himself into the sea, but the means whereby he lived, one hundred and twenty five sovereigns. This our stewardess considers a far more unques tionable proof of madness than a leto de-sc. The poor fellow threw the money overboard last evening, and it has had the effect to sotwr him. He awoke this morning to a consciousness of his penny less condition, and he begins to susxvt he has been in a delusion about his wife. The passengers are all astir with tha incident. One might imagine a mor ning paper had come in. Wh it outside creatures most men and most women arc! they live upon what is enacted : the world within, with its ever evolving and inscrutable mysteries, has nothing novel or curious for them."

AND SHAMOKIN JOURNAL; Sunbury, Northumberland Co. Trades vs. Professions. In no republic in the world, perhaps, is there more latent aristocracy than in ours. The revolu tion, while it rendered us an indepentnnt nation, did not, like the French Revoluton of '89, work a ny damage in our social system. We only ruled ourselves, instead of being ruled by othcis. The reform was purely political, and thouh the sense of tho people would not endure swords ; hoops and couit dresses at tho President' levees, it did not inteifero with the privato pomp, or aristocracy pre tentions of any one. And the social system, to this day, remains unaltered, for although lime per haps has somewhat modified it, in every iuipoitaut particular it remains as it was before tho Revolu tion. Especially is Ibis perceptible in our cities. The same deference for rank, the ssme notions of cxclusivcncss, tho same idoa of gentility and aristo cracy, disgrace too often the present generation as much as they were to be pitied in our ancestors of the colonial times. Education and talents are no iiung ; weaun or lastiion is every tiling. A man may be as learned a Newton, as philanthropise as Hownrd, as courteous and refined as Uayard, and yet he is vulgar, but il he is as great a fool as Tit mouse and rides in a gilded coach ho is tho very pink of gentility. This ridiculous affection of a superiority un known to our laws and in violation of common sense itself, is strikingly perceptible in the do ire of parents to make their sons lawyer or physicians, The veriest dunco can thus, it is supposed, le white-washed into a gentleman. Because the En glish arisfacrary for a matter of some seven cento ries has reserved the law for its younger sons, and because no man could be admit led a student at Lin col'a Inn unless he quartered the arms of a gentle man, it has come to be the fashion forsooth in our republican conntry to give young men a years probation in lawyer's office. Honest traders are deserted because they are to use the cant phrase vulgar; and every youngttej who wishes to be exclusive, and do the genteel studies the law, no matter how unfitted his talents may be for that peculiarly difficult profession. He is perhaps the son of some vain fashianable mother, and of a fa titer who has accumulated a little wealth by honora ble industry. The wife loves display, apes her ri cher neighbors, and is forever struggling to ge within the charmed circle of the exclusivea ; but las ! her husband has been a jobber, or perhaps a mechsnic, and the wives of lawyers, and gentlemen of leisure sneer at her and her pretensions. No thing will therefore do but that Johnny shall be a Uwer, and learn to despise his father as a vulgsr common tradi sman. And so the darling is brought up ; and at twenty-one takes his o iths at the bar, and linn walks Chesnut street with perfumed cuil and whiskers, and turns up his nose if an honest mechanic jostles him, or a laborer comes betwixt the wind and his nobility This miy be called an exaggerated picture, and generally spiukiug it is, although such instances are by no menu rare. Ii illustrates however our posi tion that the bar is resorted to because it is con aidercd more genteel than a trade, or even com incrce. Hundreds study this profession yearly who ought rather to be driving tho pUnu, guiding ill plough, or selling cambrics. Unfitted by their Is lents, character, or education for the law, they live drones if woihliy, audatrave if poor. This evil is wide-spread as our country. In the west, at the south, i:i New England, and among ourst Ives, the law is so ciowded with members as to render a competence in it almost impossible, New York city has seven hundred lawyers, and Philadelphia almost as many. We might name a dozen of country towns with populations little over two thousand a piece, thai contain from twenty to thirty lawyers; and of the, nine out of leu barely scrape together a pitiful Subsistence, leav ing only a titho nf their number to accumulate, for tunes. How dillereul the lifo of a mechanic When do our young merchants find themselves in want of daily bread t Nine-tenths of those wh embark in coiumerc, or work at a trade, can, with prudence, not only e iru a livelihood, bul lay up competence for old age. We deem it tho duty of every honest press to combat this eil. For our p irt, we detpise the whole cant about the gentility of profession. Tha inm who makes the citizens, whose labor yields tho most lo the community, or whose principles come nearest to those of the good man of the Bible, is the most honorable. The farmer who sows his seed, and tho builder who erects his house, the tradesman who supplies our wants, and tha laborer who works for our hire, are ju.t as honest and honorable, as the professional man who lives by hi intellect alone, or the wealthy capitalist who sub sists ou the in crest of his funds. We are all God'i ceatures. He may give one man talent, and ano tber strength, and another foitune, but artificial dis tinctions are as ''stench in bis nostrils." It is not money, nor a profession that makes the holiest citizen. "The rank is but tho guinea stimp, The mans' the gold fofa'Uiat." We have long made up our minds on this point We have satisfied ourselves that all really good an great men despiso these pitiful distinctions of profes sion ; and for the opinion of others we care not Our sons shall uot bow do-n lo this Dacon.

An ascident occurred vestcrday morning at the Ilail Road Depot in 1 ratt street, the consequences oi which there is reason to apprehend, will re sult latally to one ol the persons invol ved in it. It appears that Mr. Jons Dol'ohb:rtv, a contractor on the Balti more and Ohio Hail road, and a most worthy man, was engaged in conver sation with General Simo.v Cameron, Cashier of the Bank of Middletown Pa. both gentlemen being in that part of the depot which is near the eastern outer gate. Ueforc the car came out, Gen. C remarked to Mr. D. that he thought it was not safe to remain where they were standing, but the lat ter expressed his opinion so confidently that there was room for the cars to pass out without injury to them, that they continued their conversation without changing their position. In a few min utes alter one ot the cars was drawn out of the depot at a slow rate, and the two gentlemen were jammed between the car and the wall ol the ticket ollice As the car advanced the space left for their bodies was perhaps but little it a ny exceeding six inches. Mr. Dough city, whose bodily frame is large and stout, was shockingly crushed, tits co! lar bone and several of his ribs being broken the blood forced from his chest into his head in a manner fearfu to behold, and his eyes literally started trorn their sockets. Ucneral Came ron's thin and spare frame enabled him to escape with, we hope, no serious in jury, although the. pressure in the re gion ol the lower part Ot the body was very severe. Both gentlemen were conveyed to William's Eagle Hotel, where physicians were procured, and every possible attention that the hu manity, sympathy and kindness of the various attendants could suggest was freely afforded. General C.'s hurts do not indicate any serious injury, and we hope that a day or so ot quiet will re store turn to his wonted activity and she bosm of his family. Mr. Dougher ty's case, we are pained to add, is one of a very serious character, so much so that scarcely a hope is entertained of his recovery. 1 1 is deportment since the unhappy occurrence has been calm and pertectly sclf-posscsscd, allhougl evidently sullermg intense bodily pain I lis first expressed w ish, after being conveyed to the hotel, was that a cler gym an miht be sent for and the con solations of religion administered to him and later in the day he closed, by wi the arrangement of his worldly affairs. A messenger was also despatched to rcnnsylvama, to apprise his laimly o the accident. Jialt. American. Accidents on Ilailroads.

The application of steam twnvcr to carriages for common roads, has for some time been the subject of scientific. examination and of practical experi ment in Lngland. Several attempts lave been pronounced more or less suc- . n t-il 1 cesslul, notices oi wincn nave uccn transferred to our columns. In the late Jritish periodicals before us, we find various accounts of a new "steam coach," which is admitted to be very ricrfect in design and workmanship. It has made trips from a point within the Ucgent s Park, Lodon, to lottcn lam. Ono dav last month the coach proceeded from the Park with a full oad of scientific gentlemen to the lat ter place; there it was turned round with perfect facility by the conductor, and it returned to the l'ark. The distance traversed was between eight and nine miles; it was traversed in rather, loss than half an hour. Ihe road undulates considerably, and there are some ascents; nevertheless the speed up hill was good, certainly twelve miles an hour; on level ground it was fourteen; and on the descents sixteen or eighteen miles. The carriage was turned round with coing at the rate of ten miles an hour. 1 he conductor had a perfect command of the carriage, and caused it to pass between carriages drawn by horses, cars, &c., with which some portions of the road were crowd ed, without coming in contact with any of them, and with a facility of manage ment that was surprising. The part or division of ths vehicle designed for passengers has four trans verse seats, each of which accommo dates four persons; the boiler and ap paratus are behind the seats; the con ductor sits on the front scat and guides it and governs its speed by a sort of han dle, which rises from the foot-board. The appearance of the carriage and the rapidity of its motion caused several horses to shy, but no accident ensued. There is no visible escape of steam, nor is there any annoyance from smoke. In England, where the roads are always in perfect order, this species of steam coach might be introduced to advan tage. As yet, there are few roads in the country sufficiently smooth for the purpose. The invention must be no ted, whether extensively useful or not, among the scientific and mechanical triumphs of the day. I'hil. Nat. Gaz. Steam File Driver. Messrs. Bond, Iligham &.

This machine, which we saw in opera tion on Tuesday last, is worked by steam, and with half a dozen hands to manage it, is capable of performing the work of two hundred mm and twenty of the old fashioned pile drivers. We have not room to enter into a minute description of the manner in w hich it is constructed, and must therefore be content with saying, that it carries its own locomotive, sots up the piles, drives them, and cuts oil ;t a " I - grade with a circular saw, th is pre,...- ring the road to receive tin; i;nls as it progresses onward.

C ast Iron Rail Roads. St Ai'LDifro !c Ushkrwood's cast iron rail and superstructure, recently in vented at Owego, New York, is de scribed in the llailroad Journal as fol lows a cut being promised for the next number : "This railroad is intended to be used for the rail and superstructure of rail roads, without the auxilary of wood." "The rail is composed of cast iron, cast whole, with an upper and lower arch, and appropriate llangcs. The ar ches to be united by posts with brace3 disposed lozengerwisc between. "The arches are terminating in an a- butting piece at the ends, and the feet tied together by wrought iron rods. The bars are also connected transvers ly by wrought iron ties. The top of the rail is a horizontal bar with a flang cast under the centre of the bar, and supported by posts above the upper arch, and by braces disposed lozengcr wise between them, to support the bar and load, and secure the brunches of the upper arch. The rails are cast with a tongue and groove joint at the cxtremi ties, and fitted at the end into a cast iron chair, which is placed upon the founda tions. The foundation may consist of wood or iron piles, stone, brick or wood blocks, or such other materials as may be most convenient. "The length of the bars is ten feet, but the length and sizes may both be altered to suit the locality. A piece of this cast iron road is now in operation on the Ithica and Owego railroad, near the village of Owego. It is daily run over by an eleven ton locomotive with heavy loads of lumber, plaster, mcr chandize, etc., and in every respect gives entire satisfaction. The weight of each bar is 250 lbs., and with white oak piles placed ten feet apart' longitu dinally, can be built for SI 1,000 per milo inclusive of grading 1" If this railroad proves successful, and there is no reason whv it should not, it will open a new era in railroad making, and w ill, more effectually than 20 per cent, duty, check the importation of foreign iron. To make such a road, no iron would answer better than that made with anthracite coal; and if the castings be as simple as would .appear from the above description, they can bo furnished at the low rate of 835 or $40 per ton. This aefded to the saving in foundations, crossties Sec, would at once give the cast iron railroad the su periority in point of cheapness, w hile it would be more than equal in durability. S a 1 f.
