Mills, that they are expected to arrive in our city on Friday, to-morrow, and will open with their first Concert to-morrow evening at the CourtJIouse." Whereverthe Sable Harmonists ' hare appeared they have been greeted with full houses and the most unbounded applause, and their performances are pronounced not only the most original, but the most pleasing and laugh ter moving ever presented to the public. We are glad that these gentlemen are to be here in time to help us keep Christmas. It is just the time for fun and thf y are just the chaps to help make it. CGrThe river commenced falling at this point on yesterday and has receded 4 inches. Before coming to a stand, it rose to within eighteen and a half inchesof the mark of '32. At Louisville it reached to within eight inches, and at Cincinnati to within four inches of the flood of '32. As the river has commenced falling w e shall Lear of immense damage and great loss of prop erty by the overflow. We hear of upwards of 3000 cords of wood being lost between this place and Henderson one yard alone lost 1200 fords. CC5The Louisville Journal of Monday ays: At last we have it in our power to an nounce that the riveT is falling. It continued to rise until yesterday morning, when it came to a stand and at 11 o'clock last night it had fallen two inches. The highest stage it reach ed was between 8 and 9 inches below ih high water mark of '32. In less than a week from now we hope to see the water within its legit imate channel. - The weather is very plcnsnnt. It thaws freely during the day and freezes during the night. The mail-boat reports the river to have fal len between 2 and 3 feet at Cincinnati up to jioon yesterday and five inches at Madison up to last night. CC3Tue Journal of yesterday says: At 5 o' clock last evening, the river had fallen 3 feet 2 inches, and was then receding at the rate of an inch and a quarter an hour. Merchants and others are busily engaged cleaning their houses of the rubbish as fast as the water recedes. P. S. I o'clock, A.M. 'The river has fallen upwards of a foot since 5 o'clock last evening. The Frankfort Commonwealth, of Tuesday, reports the Kentucky river falling rapidly. The Cause or the Flood. The Cincinnati Chronicle, of Friday, says: At Tittsburg the river was eight feet lover than ia 1832. At Wheeling it was eleven feet lower, and at Cincinnati it is only six inches lower! At the mouths of the Muskingum, the Ka nawha, &c, the water was h igher iluxn it was ever Inown! This explains the whole phenomenon as to taw,. The patent flood is caused by rains falling in the valley of the Ohio and its tributaries, be Jovo Pittsburg chiefly, of which the Kanawha, Muskingum, and Sandy are. the principal ones. CC3" Upwards of five millions of acres of public lands in Wisconsiu, Florida, &c, , em bracing every variety of soil, climate, &c, are advertised to be told by the Government- in January and February, CJ"The Secretary of State in his Report to Congress suggests that the widows, &c of those who era cut off by the epidemic, shall be placed on the same footing with the survi ors of those killed in battle; and also that the widows and children of the regular troops should be placed on the came footing with those of the volunteers. ; CCT"Tbe scarcity of food has produced in Germany, the fashion of eating horse flesh. The introduction of this delicacy has takeu place at several places, with large meetings and a great deal of some sort of enthusiasm. At Berlin it has become a regular article o consumption, being cheaper than the flesh of homed animals. From June 13th to Sept 13th, 132 horses were killed and cold in that city, furnishing 06,926 pounds of meat. , Jomjs Quixcy Adam3. The editorof the Bos ton Atlas writing from Washington contra edicts, "on reliable authority," the statement that Mr. Adams is in favor of the acquisition of all Mexico. There is no foundation for the xuaior. Athrustin the "vitals." Referring to the sanguinary strain, in which President Polk, adopting the dialect of tht Shambles, urges up on Congress the necessity of prosecuting tho war "with increased energy and power in the vital parts of the, enemy's country," the Na tional Intelligencer has the following eloquent and scathing remarks. The picture drawn by way of comparison, of "Bully Polk" in the sec ond paragraph, would form an admirable study for some ready caracaturist, and we hope to see the hint improved. Of little less than stone, indeed, must his heart be, who can look, without the strongest commiseration, upon the spectacle of a nation reduced to the extremity of distress in which Mexico, known from the first to be incapable of resisting us, now stands, Not one spark of compassion can his breast ever have known, who, after inflicting upon a wretched people, destitute of any resource against us but their hereditary obstinacy, all the slaughter and hu miliation which we have. every where inflicted upon Mexico, can coolly resolve in his heart that this is wof enough; not blood enough, not tears enough; not sufficient ravage, not satis factory disaster, not national wo and degrada tion duly deep; for that the victim-people, though covered with blood and prostrate in the dust, still, with desperate though feeble hands, fights though vainly, for its hearths and altars that therefore, as Mexico does not yield, we must now begin to strike her "in her vital parts," and, besides seizing, for ours perpetu ally; territories the utmost that even Rapacity has dared avow for our aim, most pacifically and peace-lovingly exorts us to go on ravaging the rest of Mexico until the nation yields or is destroyed! Why, the very savage of the court-yard, in other times that most brutal of mankind, the bully of the bailiwick, who chewed up an car or noso, or scooped out with thumb a pros trate adversary's eye was humane, was gen erous, in comparison with this; for he, when he fought, never fought the weak, but rather his match; nor, when his rival champion lay gasping and helpless under him, game to the last and ready to die sooner than utter the cra ven word "enough," would he have ever thought of proceeding to mutilate the vanquished, by way of forcing him to confess himse If conquer ed, and then, moreover, have helped himself to whatever he could find in the maimed man's pockets. No: e ren innis hardenedheart, there would be a manly pity, because there was cou rage: if he did not at once raise up his enemy with respect, he at least would not begin "to strike at his vital parts:" and well for him, too, that he would not, for the very crowd of a court green, coarse as it then was, was yet un debauched of every right sentiment by party politics, and would not have suffered in the. bully what it now endures in the President. CO"" The St. Louis papers give uh the partic ulars of the affair at Fort Mann between the garrison at that post and a number of Pawnee Indians, a telegraphic account of which was published by us . no Tuesday. , The only ij'a terial statement ommitted in jt was that, on the approach of the Indians, a council of offi cers was hell, who determined to take them prisoners. They were invited to the fort for that purpose. The Indians, suspecting the in tention of the officers, attempted to make their escape, most of them succeeding, but several being killed and others wounded by the garri son. . . Mammoth Bouquet. Fremont, in his jour nal, mentions that on his return home from California, on the streams in that country, he met with a species of Blue Flowering Lupine, of extraordinary beauty, growing to the height of five feet and covered with spikes of flowers, and filling the air with a light and grateful per fume. On the banks of the San Joaquin, he says he found "fields of the beautiful blue flow ering Lupine, which seems to love the neigh borhood of water. We here found this beauti ful shrub in thickets, soma of them . being 12 feet high. Occasionally, three or four plants were clustered together, forming a grand bou quet, about 90 feet in circumference, and ten feet high; the whole summit covered with spikes of flowers, the perfume of which is very sweet and grateful." CCT" Potomac, the Washington correspon dent of the Baltimore Patriot, writes under dale of tlieUlh: Dr. Davis, of Indiana, the late Speykcrof the House. Iam assured, is coin" to China. Mr. Robert Tyler will not be likely togoto Naples, nor is it probable that Gen. Tillow's nomina tion will pass the Senate. Postage. The following paragraphs are from the Baltimore American's Washington letter of the 10th inst.: The Postmaster General, in the course of his report, recommends that newspapers be taxed Dy weisyit, and enters upon a grave a r- eument in defence of this absurd position. He also takes great credit to himself for the suc cess of the cheap postage system, though one of the warmest opponents of the original bill. The report will lead to a further reduction of postage, and to a unuorm rate oi nve cents, and, by-and-bye, to a postage of cents which will pay in time every necessary expense. An attempt was made in the House yester day to revive that section of the law of 1815 which allowed newspapers to be circulated within thirty miles of the place of publication without charge. I do not think that such a law will pass, or any of the recommendations of the Tost master General for imposing a tax! upon newspapers according to their weight, cr1 the pre-pa vment of letters, or the reduction cf , the half ounce. This last would be a step backward. The present law, according to the Postmaster's own showing, will leave a sur- plus in me treasury next year, notwunsuinding; the estimates of the year are for S4,092,oOG; and more than a quarter million of this sum for the mail-fteamers. Reception of Major Gaines at Covisgtok. j The Hon. John P. Gaines arrived at Covington on Thursday and was received with distinguish ed honor. We copy the following from the Cincinnati Atlas: ' A large procession was formed at the Ken ton House and moved thence to the Methodist church, which was densely crowded. Mr.Jno. W. Stevenson, on behalf of the citizens, then addressed Major Gaines, tendering rum their congratulations and cordial welcome on his return home. The address was conceived and delivered in the happiest spirit and manner, warm, eushins. deep-hearted. Major Gaines, after returning his heartfelt thanks to his countrymen for the sympathies they had manifested towards him in his "mis fortunes they had displayed on his safe return which he did with expressions of deep sensi bility, spoke about an hour and a half, for the most partpresentinga narrative of his entrance into Mexico, the military operations with which he was connected, the circumstances of his capture, his imprisonment in the city of Mexico, his escape, the victories ot lien. &cott, &c. His narration of events was clear, graph ic, and ot course ot trmmug interest, tie in timated a purpose to publish, at a suitable time certain documents in his possession, respecting the capture of his command at Encamacion. He said very little of political matters, but that little was full of meaning.- In regard to the war, he rcavowed the opinion declared by him before he joined the army," that it was wrongfully brought about by our Government, and he now added that the Administration were quite as censurable for the manner of its prosecution as for its unjust origin. The army, he knew, from personal observation, had suf-, fered for want of provisions, munition, and. men, the means ot turnisuing an wnicn naa been placed in the hands of the President by Congress. Not only had the gallant eoldieTs suffered great personal privation owing tothis dereliction of the Executive, but the war had had been actually prolonged and rendered much more bloo;ly and disastrous than it would otherwise have been. Had the President em ployed the means at his disposal in reinforcing Gen. Scott, the city of Mexico would have been captured earlier, and, in his opinion, with a far less loss of life than that actually incur red from the inefficiency of the Administration. In these opinions respecting the failure of the Executive to furnish provisions, munitions, and men to the army, and the mournful re- rulls of such inefficiency. Major Gaines said every man in the army, whatever bis political predilections, emphatically concurred with turn. He avowed his intention to vote In Congress the amplest suplies for tli army as long as the war legally exists; but he also avowed, with great emphasis, his decisive determination to oppose the annexation of any Mexican territo ry to the United States, or the incorporation of any portion of the people of Mexico with ours. He remarked that he never found a Mexican in Mexico In faror f ro with the United States, and he had no hone of any treaty througn the instrumentality of Mr. Trist. Items from Mexico. We take the' follow ing from the N. O. Picayune of the 9th inst. The writer is an officer under Gen. Paterson. The letter is not late, but the description of the Cero Gordo pass is interesting: Eu Encebo, near Jalapa, Nov. 6, 1817. From the time the train reached the .vicin ity of Cero Gordo uutil we had passed the bat tie-grounds the scene was intensely interest in. 1 have read a h-indred descriptions of the scenery, and of the great military strength of the passes, but the pictures tnus prescniea to mv mind were tame wnen compareo. un uie sublime realitv. The pass is some six miles in lensth. winding around, anions the. very bases of the. lofty mountains that lie piled -up on each other, instead ot ascending, on rescu ing the mountains you decend, as it were, into the bowels of the earth by a long, very narrow, windin-r.sten road, with rocksand trees over bansina. on ihe riaht, and a perpendicular pre- ri nine, on tha left. After decendina in this manner until it seems as if you you "could not go much deeper without coming to water, as well diggers say, you reacu ine cringe, wmcu is erected over a clear, running stream. A few hundred yards beyond this bridge you decend again to another bridge, (which the guerrillas have recentlv destroyed.) to another stream. An old church, a few huts, and barracks fo cavalry, are here found scattered about without regularity, and presenting altogether a most filthv. forlorn a Dnearance. This is "Plan del Rio, but there is no plan about it, for it is nothing more nor less than a narrow,' deep valley. , - , . Jalapa, Nov. 9, 1817; . In passing the battle grounds, three, miles further on, 1 had the pleasure of examining the Mexican lines, in which they were prepared to receive Gen. Scott's army. 1 have examined almost every hunJred rods of ground at Palo Alto and Resaca. and was present at the .bat tles of Monterey and Vera Cruz, und do not hesitate to express the opinion that the obsta cles that were overcome by our army at Cero Gordo were equal to all that were encountered at the two former places. Should 'ny one doubt me, let him visit the Cero Gordo pass (and it is worth a thousand mile journey) and judge for himself. Cd" Both branches of the Georgia Legisla ture have adopted resolution recommending to the attention of their members of Congress the subject of Mr. Whitney's proposed railroad from Lake Michigan to Columbia river in Ore gon. Intervals of the Flood. The Cincinnati Herald, of Friday, has the following: - These inundations; since the first settlement of this ronntrv. seem to have been periodical; occurrina about twice in a Generation. There was extraordinarr high water in 1793, which seems to have reached as high as that of ISlo There is alan an Indian traditionof a flood, suo posed to have occurred in 1764, which reached what is now the upper side of Lower Market j 8treet, a few feet higher than that of 1832.

REPORT OF.THE SECRETARY OF WAR. The Report ot Mr. Secretary Marcy, accom panying the Presidents Message, fills six and half of the large columns of the "Union. Unless we exclude every thing else -from our paper we cannot publish all these long public documents; and no doubt our readers will be better satisfi ed to receive their contents ia a condensed form. " ' - ' ' ' ""The Secretary states "from the Teturns in the office .of the Adjutant General, our present military force in Mexico ahd its 'distribution. The whole force is estimated at 43,536, of which 21,509 are regulars. Of these there are with Gen. "Scott and en route to join his col umn 33,156. Under Gen.. Taylor 6,727. In In Santa Fe and on the Oregon and Santa Fe routes 3,634. In California 1019. '-" He occupies four or more columns in a nar rative of the military operations in Mexico, du ring the past year, compiled from official doc uments, most of which we have pulished. This narrative is well drawn up and is inter esting. He gives due credit to the cool and determii ed bravery and skill of both our offi cers and men. -.. . . . The war must be continued, he thinks, upon one of three plans. 1: To take and hold an in demnity line, receding from all places in ad vance of it. 2: To overrun the whole country, permanently garrassoning all the principal places. . 3: To retain ' what we possess, open the lines of communication into the interior, seize such other important places as we may deem of advantage, and find means to accom plish, keeping a disposable lorce to annoy the enemy, to seize supplies, enforce contributions, and frustrate his efforts, to collect means and troops to prolong the campaign. ' With reference to a speedy peace with proper indemnity and security the only ob ject op the war, the line policy is regarded as objectionable." If bur present position fails to command acceptable terms of peace, tha adop tion of the line policy and the consequent aban donment of many of the places now occupied, would not only fail of the desired result, but weaken the-induoements of th enemy to end the warj as' it Would leave 'hlm with more abundant resources and leasure 'to prepare to strike more efficient blows upon our detached posts. To maintain such a line would require a large additional force, assailed as it might be at different points, by Mexicans and savages on eithrside. And the enemy instead of being made to bear the burden of the war, would find his advantages in the demand for supplies for our troops, and in an advance in price of the articles supplied. ."' ... Io the second plan it is objected, that the wide extent of the Mexican . territory, the nu merous points to be garrisoned, and ths long lines of communication to be kept open amidst a hostile people, would require a force of not I .1 . w fr . 1 I".! less man j.uuu men, a laree auuuion io our present lorce, and heavy it not embarrassing demands upon our treasury. The Secretary prefers the third plan the re tention of the points we occupy, keeping open te4.i. nf communication. ' end the CH-runa- tion of other places Ueem.-d advanugvuus aa the best calculated favorably to arteci those in Mexico who have hitherto left little inconven ience from the war, but who, nevertheless; may hold in their hands the decision of the question of peace, and bhould, ' therefore, be made to feel the pressure of the war. This plan will require, in addition to the troops to garri son the places retained, a force in the field com petent to aggressive operation to strike ihe enemy wherever he. presents a vulnerable point, open avennes into the interior from the sea ports in our possession, and" tocover and control some of. the rich mining districts and productive agricultural regions. . To proceed on this plan will require additional troops. The 25 regiments of regulars when filled iip to the limit of the law, will number 28,814, ex clusive of officers. The present strength being 21,583, an increase of 7,381 men will have to be enlisted. ' This plan the Secretary ap proves. .The efforts :lo induce volunteers, whose terms expire, to re-engage for during the war has not succeeded. , Additional inducements, he thinks, should be held out to them, by pla cing both descriptions of force, as to bounty and pay, on the same footing. He recommends a consolidation of the broken rogimentf ice, of volunteers, and that the supernumerary of ficers be engaged in recruiting, and if they fail in this, that they be. discharged. Ten addition al reniments of regulars are proposed, for the sauciionof Conaress at an early period. This force is preferred to one composed of volun teers. ' 1 ' ' But little has heretofore been received from collections and contribuiions from the enemy, but more is looked for in future. the Sec re -tarv recommends prompt pavment to Mexican citizens from property taken for the public, for soma or which the omcers nave oleoma respon sible. The communication for clothing to vol unteers should be discontinued, ascheap"rand better clothing can be supplied by Govern ment. Three Hospital Surgeons are called for. The West Point institution is recommended to the caeofCongres, and appropriations asked for an annual Board of Examiners. - This Report is important, at least in its aug- festions upon the mode of prosecuting the war. 'rom this the President makes his recommen dations to Congress. Cin. Gazette.'' (Xf-The Paris correspondent of the Schnell post, illustrates the present condition of Eu rope by the following anecdote : "About a month since, I met with a tailor from the Mo selle, who with his wife and only child was going to Havre to take passage for America. He told me that his business had been good, and that he had the means of living in comfort; but yet, that he-, had even left a three story house (for which ia the scarcity of. money, he could find 'no purchaser) to taks care of itself. 'But if things went well with you." I asked "Why do you emigrate?" "Sir," he replied with a great deal of feeling. "I was prosper ous enouch, it is true, but I could no longer bear to see the miseries of the poor people all around me." Markieo. At Mechanicsville on the even ing of the 19th inst., by the Rev.

Tha British ' West India Islands including Jamaica, Trini dad, Demarara, St. Vincent and Barvadoes," with the British South American Colony of Guana imitating the example of the thirteen ' Colonies upon which our Republic is based, have formed a solemn league for petition and , protest, called the "Loyal West India League, under which its members,' embracing a large majority of all the inhabitants, are sworn, like the "Liberty Boys'" in our Revolution, to "un flinchingly exert themselves to gain that par ticipation in the control of their affairs which has ever been held, by lirimh subjects, to be the birthigrhl of freemen."

They number about 8J00, and have, hitherto been obliged to reside in an inclosed place called the Ghetto, on the north side of the Tiber, entirely insufficient and therefore miserably crowded and unwholesome. The gates of this inclosure were shut at sunset, and a Jew found outside after this time was imprisoned. They were, however, allowed the privilege of depos iting goods for merchandise in buildings with out the inclosure. Another prohibition was from the practice of any of the Hbtrul or art is-' tical professions. Tha Pope has commenced , examining into these and their other grievan- ces, and has appointed a CommiisMoner to pro pose improvements. As a consequence, tha confinement of the Jews to the Ghetto is al ready abolished, 1 and other ameliorations are about to follow; ' Cardinal Ferretti has avow ed himself the patron and protector of the Is raelites. The Roman populace, hjvehowri themselves worthy of Liberty, by the cordiality with which they have welcomed the accession, of this hitherto despised race to some of their own privileges. Dinners have been given to them, and bodies of artisans have visited tha Ghetto to offer their congratulations. The Jews themselves are full of the most enthusias tic gratitude toward .heir benefactor, and have sent a deputation to the Pope, headed by their Rabbi, begging to bo permitted to enroll them selves as a National Guard, arrajd at their own expense, to join in the defence of the Papal States. : "' ' - - Italian Enthusiasm. ''A general review' of the Citizens' guard and the troopsof the line took place at Rome, on the 7th Octob,1 byr the express command of the Pope.. It was an occasion which, as is said by an eye-witness, cannot be described in prose, but requires a poetic imagination to describe it. All were drawn up tu the spacious place where the bat tle took place between Constantino and Ma- rentius. Then the grey-tmircd Gen. Zamboni bared hixhead and rode into the centre, with the inpir"uigexc!amation, ''Evviva. Pio AWorj (Long live Pius Niulh.) At once, all the halt and bliakos were upon the bayonets, an l ther.i followed a thundering "Evviva Pio Notio!" which seemed as if it would never come to an end. Next, upon the word of command thein fanlry aud the guard laid aside their guns, and the General cried, " Vita i Italia, viva I'uni&nk Ilalianar (Hurrah for Italy, hurrah for tha Italian Union.) And, as if by magic, the mem bers of the guard fell into each other's arms; and there followed so touching a scene, that of the thousands around, not one could look on without weeping. At last, ou fio sound of the trumpets, the forces resumed their ranks, and the whole corps marched into the . city. But who can describe the entrance into the city. At me cry oi "lorcne: trie wnote Corso was, in an instant, brilliantly illumina ted. At the had rode Gen.
