' ' Term. $1,75 per annum in advance.; Thursday Evening, Dec 80,1838 Uitm Disasters Lou ef Property and Lift on th Lakes in 1852 The Buffalo Ex press publishe. a statement, prepared oy Capt. G. W, Bounds, Agent of the North western Insurance company, detailing the ..loss of life and property on the Lakes during - the past year. ' The loss of property is large, being some $260,000 greater than the pre , vious year. The loss of life is also large, Capt. R. puts it at 390, which is probably considerably under tho actual number. Many persons, who were competent to judge, put the number lost on theAlanticaa high as 300.- - ' The total loss of property is put down at $993,659. , Most of this occurred on Lake Erie, .. In closing the sad account, Capt. R. says: .-;' ' - "Of the two hundred and twenty-nine dis asters here detailed, seven occurred in the month of April, nineteen in May, twenty four in June, fifteen in July, sixteen in Au gust, twenty-one in September, twenty-sev-en in October, eighty-fire in November, (55 in one gale of the 11th and 12th,) and fifteen in December.. In many instances the a-1 ' mount ot losses as above stated have been ' matters of estimate, as many must necessa rily be; but much pains and care have been taken to procure, in each case, the opinion of competent men who were most familiar ' with the circumstances. Regarding the loss of life by the steamer Atlantic, there are va rious opinions her agents and proprietors contending it did not exceed one hundred and fifty, while many who were somewhat familiar with the circumstances, set it as high as three hundred, and some even higher. The former I deem somewhat - under the mark, and the latter much above. ' The a gents can no doubt tell quite correctly how many went on board of her, but no one can tell how any were carried ashore from her . by the propeller" . " Heavy FokgeRt. On the 14th inst., at Cincinnati, a man clad in the garb of a Ken tucky drover, with a pair of saddle bags un- 1 der his orm,' presented at the counter of the ' Ohio Life Insurance and Trust Company Bank, two checks one drawn on Ellis and Morton, Bankers and Exchange Broker, at the corner of Walnut ond Third streets, and , -purporting to It signed by Evans &. Swift, Pork Packers, for $7,500; and another on , the Merchants' and Traders' Branch of the ' State Bank of Ohio, purpirting to be signed by S. Davis, Jr., &. Co., (also extensive pork packers,) for $7,321 65. These he desired . to sell at the bank for specie, and he did so; the money was paid him in gold; he took his leave, and has not since been seen! ' ' 1 No suspicion was excited until Friday lust, when Ellis and Morton discovered thut the account of Evans arid Swift with them was overdrawn, and pn applying to them, the check was ascertained to be a forgery! When this information was obtained, it was remembered that both checks had been pre sented by the' same person! and on investi gation, the other, too, was learned to be spu rious!

Several bills were ex mined in committee of the whole1, but we do not notice that any final action was had on any of general interest. .On Tuesday, the House adjourned over until rriday, to says: givo ' the use of their hall to- the Teachers' Convention, when they will prob ably adjourn over again until after New Year's day, and thus will end the Holiday week. It is to be hoped that, after that time, quorums will not be so difficult to scare up and that business will be despatched more speedily. Kossuth Expenses ir New Yob A day or two since, the Board of Aldermen, of New York city, appropriated an additional sum of $3,800, to pay a balance on the hoard bill of the Hunzarain and his suit at the Howard Hotel. This makes a sum to talof $13,739:36, equal to about $2,000 a week for mere hotel expenses for the seven weeks these men were feasted in that city. If Ihis is not voting away the money of the people for illegitimate expense, we would like to know what is. In Luck.
