It is a fortunate circumstance for the country that we have a gentleman now at the head of the Navy Department, who has the nerve to use the pruning knife of reform, without flinching. We are delighted to hear that the Professorships of Mathematics, so long a sineett'e and a moth, are to be abolished. It is a most excellent move—the Lieutenants can discharge all the duties apper taining to such a professorship, to their own ad vantage and thp improvement of the Midshipmen ; it will keep their know ledge of *• facts and ft gores ” constantly brightened up.— U■ S. Journal. We are glad to find that the “ pruning knife of reform,’’has been uspd, we sph no good reason why Lieutenants in the Navy should not make as good Schoolmasters ns old Commodores make Ship Carpenters. Naval Constructors, Dry Goods Merchants, and Grocers. While this improving spirit is going on, we would suggest to the Secre tary that a great deal of money might he annually saved, if the officers in the Navy were compelled to do their own praying, and thn Midshipmen ware to officiate as Chaplains for the men. The office of Professor of Mathematics ceases when the ship returns to port, hut the Chaplain, as now c instituted, dra ws his pay on the same terms a* other officers. It would he a greater saving to dispense witli them altogether, than is made with the Professors, and their service might he more readily spared. We see no use of keeping them “ on leave” pay, when young, energetic, and ef ficient men. could always he fourid, who would readily and willingly accept the office for the cruise. We, ourselves, have spoken to one “brave Commodore ”• for that office on his next cruise. THE CIT Y OF NEW YORK.

HOST!LLTIES COMMENCED We learn from nor New York papers that on the night of the election a party of Whigs, pass ing the Native Head Quarters, on the corner of Grand and Broadway, were desperately assaulted by the Natives who had congregated there await ing the returns from the sevpral Wards. The cause of the assault seemed to be in consequence of various cheers for Franklin, which the Whigs were vociferating for their own amusement. The Natives heat the few Whigs who were there, in • most shocking manner, and not satisfied with this, followed them to the opposite corner, wherp the Whig Head Quarters, the Broadway House, is situated, and commenced a general melee.— People were knocked down with no discriminn- j tion, and an assault was made upon the house, i by tearing down shutters, Wreaking the windows. »ud kicking in the doors. Soon the Whigs rallied •nd stn**d manfully on their jlefence, and that of their Quarters. The keeper of the Broadway House, Mr. Mirlin, was in great fear lest the haul# should turn in favor of thu assailants, and llial Ins property would lie destroyed. At this ■ lm»e a large and excited concourse «>f people had assembled. looking on with great anxiety lor the result, when a parly of Democrats, members of the Empire Club, who wero on their way to old Tammany, learning the merits of the case, threw thems-lves between the combatants, and soon succeeded after some stringent forcible arguments, in quelling tho riot and driving the rioters from the field. WHIGS AND NATIVE AMERICANS. W hen the Native 'Auieriann party first started, the old Federal parly, hoping to gain the ascen ! dancy joined them, and encouraged tlip formation ! of a tiers etat, hut when charged with it, they I bitterly denied it and charged it as a Inm fnco lie. I I’he billowing paragraph from the New York Courier shows who spike the truth. ‘•'The election returns which we publish this morning, incomplete as they are, show very con clusively dial the great body < f the Whigs who voted for Harper last Spring have now returned to the old Whig ranks, where they stand when tin* lime shall come to make effective opposition to the common enemy. The Native vote will scarce exceed 8.000, instead of the 17,000 cast for Harper. The Whig vote will probably not fall iniicli short of 12.000. The Locnfhc.i vote xx i 11 probably tie somewhat above 17.000” When we staled nf'er the late Presidential election that the old Federal party would change its name to “ Democratic Whig,” we were jeered at as prophesying an impossibility.

Truly the tales of life are more startling, and are enveloped more in mystery than fiction—the revelations of whieh surpass in horror of feeling the thrilling romance.'” From the Union. OREGON. The whole of Oregon, or none—this is the only alternative as an issue of territorial right. We wholly deny ihe break in the Ame rican title at latitude 49 deg. YVh hold that our tille from 42 deg. to 54 deg. 40 min. is one title, and, as we believe, a perfect title against all the world. As the question has been discussed fur a quarter of a century between us and England, we are not aware of one argument—scarcely of one phrase purporting to he an argument — which car fins urn- title up in 49 (Jeg. and there stops. vVe claim as matter of right ihe territory drained by the Colombia river, in the view of the law ,.| nations, ibis territory being unoccupied, has >is distinctive character anil unity as one region, in the lacl that it is so drained. And as one region, we either own it,or wedo not own it. Away, then, once for all, with such nonsense as •• the claim of England north q/'49 (/eg. i» l*.| ter than our claim!” Let us at least know clear ly, and stale accnr.iUly. what we do hi this mat ter. It n have ever been deemed expedient (as matter of compromise, and to bosh up a di-qxaie) In give mray to England a certain pnrilnu of ifeni land, all ot which we consider onrs; or if, font* any other motives of high national coucernniCNit, it may have been deemed wise to comprooiise rbe question of |MMses*inn, let os say so, and pm ,*,r past action on that ground. Hot lei us make tut attempt lo cloak nor policy under a pretended i* ferioriiy of our title In the land so sacrificed. N-» ! such pretence can save us. Again, wo must speak to ihe democratic parly of the United iMa-tcs. Bill we dare to hope that many a liberal whig will led ihe force of the ap peal which the interests of hts country will unUe lo his patriotism on lhis important qinsiiuri. We especially address ourselves, however, at this lime, to the democratic parly, because of Ihe pecu liar circumstances which have connected ihein in past limes with the question of Oregon. They became peculiarly Connected with H by their pub lie avowals near eighteen months ago. The Ba| limofb convention expressed the deepest interest in the territory ol Oregon. In ihe canvass of ihe presidential election, the same decided sentiments were mamleated. I he President’s first prompt. Strong, manly word, in foil response to that con vention, was. •* 11 the Oregon our right is clear and unquestionable.-’ Lei that word be sp-ken again by the man whom millions of freemen have called to occupy the •• great central |h.Si of the civilization of p-.pu lar power.” and whudnuhis hut that ihe democ racy of the whole Union will repeat H_With a full determination to Stand by Un# riglcs of the country? When that word goes firih from the constituted authorities of the nation. ••Our right to Oregon is clear and unquestionable/’ who don tit a ihai it will go through ihe length ami breadth of ihe land, and that It will be hailed, as it goes, bv the democratic party with one unanimous amen t And whai then ? We answer this then— the de. mocracy of this country will atand to us word, it will nut flinch. Nur will the honest, patriotic, ami determined whig flinch either. W e observe that several journals are greatly occupied with rumors of a proposition submit ted, or about to be submitted, by the English govern nirnt, that Oregon shall remain lor some twenty years longer tinder the stipulation of 1818, in the joint occupation of the two nations, with the un derstanding that, at the dose of the stipulated pe riod. the Oregon colonists may decide for them selves whether they will then exist as an inde pendent nation, nr whether they will belong in the United States nr In England. A few days ago wo took occasion to show how this theory of joint occupation works in practice. We then showed that it resulted through the surreptitious agency nl the Hudson Hay Company, in the ex tension u! English law over the whole unoccupied territory; while every measure recognising the American citizens there as our citizens, and as entitled to the protection of our laws, had been regarded in England, at least, as violating ihe treaty stipulation. |u our judgment, it is full time that this slate nt things should cease. We believe Congress will so decree. On Ihe subject id the itnumed proposition, to which wo have alluded, we <|imie with pleasure the following just sentimen's trorn the French journal in N»-w V'ork, the •* Courrier des Etats Unis.” They are entitled to tin* more consideration, ns the sentiments of a comparatively disinterested third party. Let not the Americans.” 9avs the Courrier, “he deceived. All that England wishes, all that she aims at in presenting this pro|Mmittoit, is /r, gain time. Of what interest in her is a sojourn of u few years in Oregon ? W hat she desires is a permanent position on the Pacific shore of ihe American continent. Wre may rest assured that Hie will not risk the chances of this hazardous proposition, unless she counts oh the new elements which the lapse of twenty years cannot fail lobring into the question, and. if need he. rin the weight of her gold scattered hy hand*-/nil in Ongon, In incline in her J'nror the doubtful balance if decision, when the hour of derision shall sound.” Hew much llitscConsiderations are einphacised hy the presence and the agency in that region of the great corporate organization to which we have alluded, is hut ton manifest. W'e hold, with the Courrier, that such a proposition from Eng land can he no more than a proposition to gam time. Anti now we say, once tor all. that^we know of no evidence whatever that any such pro posiiion has been, nr will be, submitted by the British government. Meantime, the question must come up in the next Congress. “ What shall we do in relation to our citizens in Oregon?” And we have no douht that the patriotism id Congress will answer, in vipw nt all ihe facts—recognise them, protect •hem. establish communication with them, and extend to them a participation of our own free Republican Government. NEW JERSEY. The Democrats of Morris have behaved in a most disrespect fill, if not nngentletnnnly manner towards the Candidates on their ticket, in lettii,,, the recent election go hy default. The I)em... erais nl Randolph and several other town-hips did out send for their tickets until the morning „| election, and consequently the P,,)|s were open several hours hefore the tickets were distributed Pequannac would have been without tickets liad not a pet son going there on business taken some with him ; and the polls of this town were not attended hy a Democratic challenger even. After having taken much pains lo form one of the best tickets ever presented to the people of this county for their support, and then leave it to fall to the ground without a single effort to sustain it, is 1,8 .. strange and inexplicable conduct.* The activity of the whtgs presented a most severe contrast to the leaden indolence of their oppo nents, and enabled them to laugh its to scorn w ith a majority of 500 to hack them. What an agreea tdc reminiscence for the lazy Democrats this will he until an opportunity is offered them to wipe out their disgrace. ‘ With the exception of Burlington, hitlier'o one of the Strong whig counties of the State, but now democratic ; and Passaic, where the Democrats have elected a sheriff, surrogate, and it is heliev ed part of their Assembly ticket, the other coun ties so for as heard from, are of the usual cum ! plexion.— Deinocrnlir liminer.

CLAIRVOYANCE AN IMPOSITION. To the Editors of the Whig : Circumstances have transpired, which call for a statement of the means by which De Bonne ville’s Clairvoyant Exhibition was exposed ; On 1 hursday, Oct. lGth, Messrs. Lyons, Caskie, i>. II. Myers and Snead, were appointed by the au dience. at the instance of De Bonneville, a Com mi ties to blindfold the pretended Clairvoyantc, a girl about 10 01 12year*old. I was invited by them, as also by the audience, to come upon the platlorin as an observer. The experiments of the night were not satisfactory to Messrs. Lyons, Caskie, nor myself, but entirely su to Messrs. Myers and Snead. On h nday evening, Messrs. Lyons, Caskie, Drsi D*-ai» and Dove, and myself, were selected by the audience to blindfold the Clair voyunte, and conduct the experiments. Dr. Dove was called away, and did not witness the proceedings of the evening. De Bonneville claimed the use of bis own ban dage, which was objected toby Dr. Deane. At length, my proposition to meet De B. halfway, viz: to use bis bandage and two thin cambric handkerchiefs, obtained from ladies in the room, was acceded to. Mr. Lyons and myself applied ‘he bandage, the girl being in the clatrvoyanle state, as announced to the audience by De Bonne ville. Before the application of the bandage, the girl stated to De B., that she was entirely well,and expressed to me the same before she was placed in the pretended Mesmeric condition. Alter the bandage had been applied, upon inquiry from De B.. she said she was not well ; “had a pain about her heari ;” “I have been walking a good deal during the day;” “let me go for to night, and I will be ready to-morrow—for I will indeed stay m my room.” To this De B. replied, “Oh, you are well ;” when Mr. Lyons and myself nroed De Bonneville not to proceed, if the litt|n yjr| was unwell.' He then inquired of the L'lnirvuu mile, “ Don’t you see me / you certainly can see me.” She responded, -I see you a little ” He ilien remarked in Mr. Lyons, “She can see, and you may proceed with your experiments.” An engraving u( a skull was placed before her, and as it was in a hook she had no means of knowing whether it was an ordinary page of a quarto vol ume, or a plate ; afier feeling j,. pressing it to the head, the lace, &.C., she said “ I can’t see any thing.” and handed the book to Mr. Lyons. W bile Mr. Lyons was presenting it to the audi* enco, and some altercation between De B. and him was going on. Dr. Deane, myself, and seve ral of the audience, saw her attempt to lift the bandage, failing in Ibis, to Mr. Lyons’ request to make another trial: “ I can’t see anything, and I will take off the bandage”—which she deliber ately did. and left the chair. During this eve ning. although Mr. Lyons was the only member of the committee put in communication with the girl, she conversed with me, and obeyed my di rections when I ordered her not to touch the ban dage. Thus ended the only exhibition in which this Clai>voyantc was bandaged beyond the pos sibility of seeing with her natural vision. The Committee unanimously announced the experi ments to be an entire and uniniiigated failure „ ^ uATDRDAV. Oct. 18. Messrs. Dame], Peake and S. H. Myers were appointed the committee to examine the banda.re and test whether or n..t a person could see when this (De Bonneville’s) bandage was snooly ap plied. The audience then, by a vole, called upon me to test the bandage when applied to the com mittee. and also to apply ji to ihe Clairvoyants Mr. Peake was selected, and although the band age was applied to him under the direction of De Bonneville, said. “ 1 can see light but not enough h.r vision ; hut give me something.” A sheet nf paper was held before him. an I he exclaimed, “a sheet of paper, and there is the word ‘The’ w rit icn upon it. 1 lie bandage was again adjusted, either by De B. nr under his direction. An en graving was held before him, and he described it as - Shrubbery with two birds upon it.” It was an accurate description of the plate. It was I again adjusted under the same direction, and he remarked, •• I cannot now see so distinctly, but I can see the flame of the candle at mv side. The bandage, he it remembered, up to this lime, had been applied or adjusted by De Bonneville I never had touched it. I then announced, that 1 would apply this (De B.’s) bandage as I had done ihe night before to ihe Clairvnynnle—when the exposure of the pretended Clairvoyance was con clusive. Mr. Peake then slated, that for the first time his eyes were perfectly bandaged and light excluded Besides the bandage I bad used a cambric ha ml kerchief. Here the committee ex pressed their belief that ihe bandage bv itself cml.l not prevent ordin iry vision. ~De B. said the bandage was not mane for an adult and pro posed to call up a child. I told Mr. Daniel In call up Dorsey Cullen, a son of Dr. John Cullen; ibis be did, and the boy refused, but upon mv calling him and telling him I would take the blame, (f.r his lather had forbade him taking any part in the exhibition which bad been going on nightly.) he came to the stand. Does any one ask why I named Dorsey Cullen? 1st. Because he is about the age and size of the little girl for whom the bandage—the offspring of five"hours’ labor was fabricated. 2d. His eyes are retreat ing. 3d. He is quick, intelligent and fearless.— 4ih, and lastly, because Mrs. De Bonneville, in ihe presence of her husband, in her own private apartment, had placed it rm him in the morning of that day ; and when the little buy said he could see so as to read, had charged him with falsehood and denounced him a skeptical little boaster, ex claiming. “ You can’t see.” Hp, however had toil much respect for himself ami truth, to admit Hip assertion or deny the truth. This he com mnnirated to me in the presence of Colonel S S Myers, at 2 o'clock on Saturday, on Governor street. The bandage was applied to Dorsey Col b n by Messrs. Myers and De Bonneville. The l.mer expressed Ins approval of the application — Mr. Daniel presented an engraving which lie had brought from his house, and w hich neither Dor soy nor myself had ever seen. Immediately ,h<. little boy called out, “A man on horseback ”— Soch was the fact. De Bonneville here remark ed. *• The bandage was made so that it can he so ldo d so that you can see. and so yon cannot see’’ Important annunciation : The truth .,f ton oo the Hank of Charleston, was hsnd. d to the little hoy and as soon as he east his eyes up .n it. he called out, •• a ten dollar bank nuto.” Some one in the crowd said. “ what bank ?” Looking in the body of the note and spelling, hy touching the letters, he said, *• here is Ten Dollars printed in large typo, but I don’t see any name of the bank.” pointed t» the top of the note over the vignette, ana he replied, “bank of Charleston.'' The shoot which was instantly heard, told how deep a conviction of the imposition had been im pressed upon the audience. '1 his w ag a conclusive test of the falseness of D« Bonneville’s bandage, tor the little boy had never seen a hank note in which the name of iha bank was not inserted in the body of the bill._ Here I must be |iermilted to state, that I had neverseen a ten dollar note of the Bank ofCharles lon, nor could I, nor Dorsey Cullen, see this one, as Mr. Peake had brought in expressly to test the pretended Claireoyanie and had not exhibited it to me nor Dorsey. I farther state, that I have never applied a bandage upon Dorsey Cullen, nur have | ever practised upon him. De Bonneville and Mr. Myers always applied the bandage to Dorsey Cullen. [ never applied, a jus ed. nor touched it, a.id any statement to the contrary is false. .My confi I.-nee in my ability to convict the im p •sttion, w.is upon common sense principles ( knew that the God of Nature had «*iven no man the control ot his fellow. .My earliest moral in structiun had taught me to know, that as my acts were prompted by my own will. I was alone re sponsible; that no one could assume the responsi bility, hecause no one could control my will. | knew that all philosophy condemned the preten sions of the Mesmerists, and that men saw only through their organs which creative skill had ap propriated in all animals to that particular func tion. I further knew that all previous Clairvoy ance had been unable to sustain itself before a rigid investigation. I had seen the refusal of this pretender (De Bonneville) to test hi* Clairvov ante fairly, in the dark, with another bandaoe or with any means which could positively t,|,nd the natural eyes of the giil; and, as I knew the deception was owing to the construction of the bandage, | was willing to rest the whole matter upon Mr. Peake and Dorsey Cullen. The im position lay in the peculiar construction of the bandage. I detected on Thursday night in what it consisted. In the failure of Friday night I gave pr.sif that my judgment had not been er’ro nenus, and, on Saturday. I displayed to the entire satisfaction of an intelligent and respectable as semblage of my fellow citizens, not only where the imposition was, but how it was accomplished U as ever exposition inure complete ? The con viction, that the bandage was a false one. and that the boasting pretender had been dealinu with their credulity, and playing upon their generally, by impudent protestations of sincerity, was so com plete and overwhelming, that the audience, as one man. gave marked expression of their con tempt and disgnst for the imposture and its au thor. Mr. Peake, Dr. Cullen and myself a ppenled to them to abstain from all acts of violence, and quietly retire. Phis, they immediately did Of the crowds that followed De B.’s carriage, | nei ther saw nor heard until the next day ” | owe it to my professional brethren, far the courtesy they have extended to mo dur.ng my efF-rts to exnose the Humbug, and fur the steadfastness with which they resisted the advance of imposture, to state to the distant I uhlic. that I have not heard of any I hystetan, known to the community as a member of the Medical Profession, who has espoused the !
