SUNBTOY AMERICAN. AND SIIAMOKIN JOURNAL. Absolute aegoaceftce in the decisions of the Ily Nasser K fclacly. Plltl-lP PKNCEK. We copy Hie following partictiJars of the lifo and carour of this unhappy man, from the Now- Haven Palladium, for which paper it was pre pared by one who nays he w as once hia "friend and messmate, and who continued and cher ished the former term, until ingratitude mark ed by ferociottaaesA vl feeling and heartless de pravity of character, burst asunder the chorda of amity, which in the beginning of his naval career, had every seeming of being lasting." Philip Spencer was born in Canandaigua, New-York, and at the time of his awful death, was about 19 years of age but in strength of mind, intelligence, literary aUain.iienls, and bold daring, was fur, far beyond his years. No thing in his history of much interest is tho wri ter aware of, until his College career. I In was font to Union College, Schenectady, but did not graduate, as his conduct there became so notorious that he was expelled or had leave to absent hiin.-elf. He returned to his friends where ho remained some time. Being of a wandering turn of mind, and fond of any thing bordering on the dangerous and marvelous, he eloped from his home and went to New. York ; cencealing his parentage, shipped for a whaler fitting out at Nantucket, and (alone with many others of kindred feeling, but not of that daring, reckless spirit, fearless alike of life or death,) was sent to the latter place in a email schoon er. Tho ship that he was to embark in not being ready, he remained some time on the island. During this time, and previous to the gnlc of October, IS 11, he volunteered to go out on the banks in a small vessel for what the whalemen denominate Black Fish, and in that gale came near being lost, as many were at that time : as it was, they got back to Nantucket quite a wreck. Here I told him that I was surprised that lie should ever think of adopting that haz ardous life, sought only by those whom friends and fortune had disregarded, and whose lust lingering star of hope had sank beneath the I horizon, perhaps never to re-appear. He smi led at my astonishment at his deserting his happy luxurious and delightful home ; and now as I look back, as I often have since, 1 think of that smile of Spencer yes, as I now write, I can see him as distinct as the words I um pen ning Hint Ktuile was not human ! Tho wild rolling of his eyes told plainly enough, to any one at all discerning, that something was work ing in Hint heart that could not submit to the dull monotony ot this peaceful, every day life. His reply was that ho "should like to har poon a whule aud sec tho blood spilt," that he "was not afraid of danger and liked an aventu rous life." The ship being ready to receive her casks, he was compelled, with many others, to work from morning till late at night in get tiiiL' them and her stores on board, being allow ed only thirty minutes for their meals, which were of the coarsest kind, and only five hours rest at night in a miserable forecastle inclose communion with the dregs of New-York streets. I told him I thought that this servile labor and hard living, would have satisfied his curiosity to seethe world ; but no the excite ment was to come. In confirmation of his as eertions, he showed ma, Jiis hands, and they, from their horny, hardened appearance, corroli orated his statement of what he hud undergone at Nantucket. Having disposed of his ward robe and replaced them by the course and home ly carb of whaler, he was ready, ns was also the ship, in two days, to sail for their cruising grounds in the South Seas. In the interval of time from his disappearance from home to tho time of our narrative, his friends hail by diligent inquiries found his whereabouts, and knowing his uiicontrolable disjHisition, and his determination ut all huzards to go to sea, their influence and his father's po sitions as one of the Cabinet ut Washington, procured torhiin u midshipman appointment, which wa sent with all despatch to Nantucket, with a description of his pertnn, Arc. to the care of thi owner of tho ship. This and a letter from his father, was placed in his hands. This prospect of change from drugery to a compara tively easy life, had not much effect oil him as it would have had on most young men ; but by the earnest persuasions of the owner and cap tain, after learning who he was, he was induced by them to give a volunteer $30 to take his place in the ship. He came on to New-York and was there fit ted out by his uncle, Captain Spencer, of the Navy, and by him introduced on board of the guard-ship North Carolina. His sojourn on board of that ship (about four mouths) was pas sed, as is much of the time of some other young turn in like circumstances, in occasional, and I am sorry to say, frequent dissipation, princi pally at night, but not unfrcqutntly in the far of day. Here ho committed an aggravate and tinimpruvud assault upon his superior officer, which was investigated by tbQ 0)iiiinulorc in the cabin of that bhip.;,, ibe presence of the uncle, CapU Opener, , and a commander of the W". The wr i'!cil report itude ry the jiij! majority, the vital principle f Republic., from which Sunbtiry, Northumberland Co. ted officer to the .Secretary of the Navy, though from the commandant of the station, was un heeded, supposed from family influence, and Speneer was ordered to the brig Sorncrs. The officer thus treated resigned from the service. The writer does not charge tho excellent commander of the North Carolina with a knowl edge of the facts of the dissipation among some of tho young men of that ship ; he believes it was entirely beyond his knowledge. Tho horrid death of young Spencer must be most fearfully distressing to the feelings of his family, and the writer would not add another pang to their already broken bents; but he trusts it may be a warning to many youths who wish to leave the happy fireside of their homes and the kind influence of a mother's love, and a father's dearest hopes, to seek abroad on the tempestuous seas a home surrounded by dangers and temptations. I have digressed something from my first undertaking, namely, a concise statement of young Spencer's career, which has ended ignominiously at the yard-nrni of a man-of-war within one year from the commence ment of his naval career ; and not wishing at this time to occupy too much space in your val uable columns, I will, if agreeable, finish my sketch at a future time. lee House. Wc copy the following from the Maine Far mer, and cammend it to the attention of all our readers : "It has often been a matter of astonishment to us that more of our farm houses are not pro vided with this valuable appendage. The cost of constructing them is very trilling, as the builder can doall 'within himself,' and at sea sons w hen there is necessarily little else of con sequence to occupy his time. When conveni ent, the location of tlie ice house should be in the cellar, where it is doubly convenient from he ready facilities it affords for preserving milk, butter, &c, during the summer, all of which are greatly improved, and often times prescr- ed by ice, when, without it, they would be li able rapidly to deterioate, or perhaps ppoil. Nothing can be more simple than the modus opotandi of constructing them. A hole of the capacity desired, is first elevated in the bottom of the cellar, from live to six feet deep, and at the bottom covered w ith stones of small size, after the fushion of paving, and over which, when completed, and the interstices filled with clean fine sand, is superinduced a stratum of boughs, either of spruce or fir. The sides are then lined with the same material, as is also the top, which is f rnied of cross work, with an opening two feet square in the side or centre. to subserve the purpose of a door. Into this depot ice should be introduced into square cakes, ofa uniform size, in order that they may occu py less room. The whole process, it will be 6 en, is very simple, and the expense ot con structing and filling up, when the materials are near at hand, necessarily light. A farmer in- funned us recently, that he had in one season saved more than three times the cost of his ice house, in the articles of niiik and meat." Mlllcrlam. The Rev. A. C. Thomas lectured adverse to the absurd doctrines of Millerism, at the Brook lyn Lyceum a nightor two ago The N. Y. Express notices his discourse thus : "Tlie foundation of Miller's theory was upon tho prophecies of Daniel and the Apocalypse. The precise year of 1843 whs obtained in se veral ways, by the different h'neths of time al lowed for the accomplishment of the prophecies, and by the manner in which he computed the time meant bv the 23' 10 days in Daniel and the 70 years. That Miller's theory was erroneous he proved by quoting some other prophecies. and the manner in which the term of days and years were used, nnd the length of time taken, proves completely that days and years were 11- sed in prophecy as in common language with us now. As instances, he quoted first the destruction of Nineveh predicted by Jonah, and that it was destroyed at the time specified no one. could doubt, he said. So in the case of Joshua in hi' promise to the Israelites that he would take them across the Red Sea in three days, no one could doubt but that it was completed in three days instead of years. lie also quoted the pn. sage in flenesis, where God piomi-ed No, ih that at the end of seven days it should r'-.ir .;,r. ty days and forty nights, which was t,.;y .,. pleted ; and to show in a mor s',rikin r jj.i!,t the absurdity of calling a 'lay a yclxft tt jom. by Mdler, he would ao'y lho ru0 t0 Mme ot the passages o.'.ote,;, by" Mller ,-or insliincP, Nebuch.iner r WM t0 pagg pevf n times seven yc.ru amor.g the beasts of tho field.

TtIK Mtl.t,KMlM, A sermon on tho Millcnitnu was recently preached by Dr. Tomlinson, of Augusta Col lege. It has since been published. Dr. T. in dicates the opinion that the commencement of the Millenium will take place 155 hence. He drfines the .Milli niiim nn a period in which the Christian religion shall be universally tri umphant; not only pervading, but actually ex tending its retormiteg and purifying influence throughout every portion of the habitable plobe. 1'rest. Jenkin, however according to the Cincinnati! Chronicle, says thatthu Mil lenium will commence in 100, 21 years from this time, end the editor of the paper just nam ed says that if the world were to go on for 155 years just ns it has done Kir 155 past, some thing very like the Millenium would be pro duced. Ho arpuos thus : 1. The United States has for 150 years doub led its inhabitants each 25 years. In 150 years more then, we must have, on the conti nent of North America more inhabitants than tlie earth now has, provided the soil can main tain them. But, the Arts, of Acricu'turo as well as all others, have so increased that it i perfectly reasonable to suppose they can lie maintained. If schools, coHeg-s, Churches, the Press, nnd the dissemination of the Bifile go on as they have done they will be the mo-t enlightened and Christain people, by far, that have ever lived 2. Within 150 years 100,000,000 of Hindoos have been conquerel by British Arms, and the Press nod the College been planted in the midst. It is, therefore almost, nay quite inevi table, that in 150 years every foot of Asia will be under dominion of the Anglo-Saxon ruce. In tlx; meantime, the Press, the College ami the Bible will there produce their natural and benign 1 fleets upon the Asiat c mind. I,ong before that period then, we may expect, upon common historical grounds, by process of mere Arithmetical calculation to see Idolatry lose ils hold on the human mind and the nations of Asia as those of Rome did, forsake their heathen gods, and inarch under the banner of Christi anity. 3. Mahomedanism is already expiring, and soon Constantinople will be a Christian city. Jerusalem will be re-inhabited by its ancient people, and the Zion of the Jew and Christain re-illuined with holy light. 4. The last fact, to which we shall advert is the vast discoveries made within recent years in the islands of the sea, and the effect of those discoverit a on tlie civilization and advance ment ot mankind. Tiic Island of New Hoi land, is of il.-elf equivalent 111 magnitde to a continent. New Zealand is another vast ac quisition. The course of the Niger has been turned, and the interior of Africa lies exposed to the approaches of civilized man. In con nection with this we see colonies in New Hol land and New Zealand, began as places of exile for convicts, now become extensive marts of commerce, with a rapidly increasing popu lation. The Sandwish Islands are filled with professional Christains. These are a part of the extraordinary trans actions, of the last 150 years. They are cn 'irely independent too, of the great progress in Science, of the vast improvements in steam power, anil of the still greater power of the Press. If, then, w ithout any miraculous inter position, so much has been accompli.-hcd in one hundred and fifty years, we say that shou'.d this progress be continued one hundred and fifty years longer something very like tho Vtileni utii must be produced. By the way if we mistake r.t Mr. Locke, whose astronomical lecture in New Yi rk have excited considerable at'.cutuin has also e.pre-s-ed the op nion, that the commencement of the Millenium is ut bund. Dr. Totiiiis.m, thinks that the Mil'rr.ial inhabitants of tho earth will live t o lis er-:tt an a?e as the Patriarchs of old. liu' there is every reason to helieve tint constitution und luurtinns of the tni.oin li nnd that the nature, cause.-, p, (,ve!i'no, cures of discii-os, wi'l he inroinn ti'.'v b. understoiid than they ar" at pre-, n'.

A notion somewhat similar, is inculcated by Bulwer, 111 his Zanoui.

Dr Tondinsoti qtrntes Isaiah when he says : "there ahull be no more thence, or an nld man that has trot filled his days." Ho also expieas eth opinion, that during the delightful peri od fllhiilod to there shall be an entire cessation of all nt. t loon 1 ucd individual hosti'ity between man and man ; that tho people shall beat their swords into ploughshares, and their spears into pi uning-hooks, tliHt nation shall not lift np sword against nation, neither learn war any more, That the great and paramount law of love tofJod, and leva to man, shall he so gen erally acted tixm, that tho pnetical influence, of every contrary Bentiincnt, shall be utterly banished from the earth. Without expressing any opinion as to the varimiB views one thing is clear, to far as Christains are concerned, namely, that it is the duty of every individual to act In the immedi ate circle of which he forms a member, so as to in prove the mental and moral condition of those around him, and thtis to assist in how ever humble a depict; the arrival of the period to which all having faith in the scriptures and re- I'.eeii-s, look forward with hope and con fideriCe.

Gentlemen : In answer to the many in quiries for information respecting the route to, and country of Upper California, I take the privilege of sending you this imperfect sketch, which, it you think it will interest any of your numerous readers you will please insert in your valuable paper. Upper California lies between tho 31st and 3'Jd degrees of N. L., embracing an extent of coast of about 700 miles, and extending back to the fiot of the great mountain (which run p-iral'el with the coast) a distance of from 50 to 150 miles. This great valley is crossed by low hills, from three to ten miles wide, with val leys of from 10 to KUI miles wide. Through these valleys flow larger streams, having ther rise in the main mountains; with many srp.nl.'ier streams emptying into them from thoso ridges, affording many beautiful sites for mills, and o ther machinery. The principal rivers are the Joacim and Sicrument : the latt'-r is navigable a considerable distance for vessels of a large size. They both enter into t!ie bay of La Fran cisco. The land of th...SH valleys is equal to any in Missouri or IViinois, the productions are the same as are iound in the la'itudes of the United States. Corn yields well here : wheat seems to be. perfectly at home, producing from 5 to 10i) (and even more) bushels to the acre. Grain, of every description succceJs well. Apples, peaches, pears, oranges, figs, cher ies, &.c, &.C. coino to fine perfection. Oats and clover grow spontaneously, and of superior qualities toany grown in the Western country. With the exception of narrow skirts of oak along the streams, tho valleys are entirely des titute of timber ; they are covered with oats, clover, and grass, the mrvt luxuriant the eye ever neheld. The ridges, or hills, are covered with timber, of the finest quality forship build ing and other pnriose., and growing to the en- urinous height of o(HI feet, and twenty feet in j i: n;v!i r. The st renins abound in fish, and ; the plains nr covered w ith thousands of wild ., e: deer, ant. -lope, bear, wild ducks, illl br-iio-i.
