PROROGATION OF PARLIAMENT. — House of Lords, August 24.—The House of Lords was opened to-day at a little after twelve o'clock, and immediately a con siderable munber of ladies were admitted, and occupi ed the benches usually appropriated to the Peers.— , Several seats were reserved for Peeresses, who came rather later. Lung before two o'clock the strangers' gallery, the two small side galleries, intended for Peers, and the body of the House, were completely filled, and chiefly with ladies; several very young ones were present. The place appropriated to the Foreign Ministers, on the left hand of the throne, was also till ed before two o'clock. We noticed the Russian and Prussian Ambassadors, the Beleian Charge d'Affairs, the American Minister (Mr. Everett), nod we believe the whole corps diplomatique were present. if any were absent, no vacant places were left, and more room • must have been provided had more arrived. Her Ma jesty then read the follow iug speech. My Lords and Gentlemen, The state of public business enables me to close this protracted session, and to release you front further attendanze of your parliamentary duties. I thank you fur the measures you have adopted for . enabling me to give a full effect to the several treaties which I have concluded with-foreign powers. have given my cordial assent to the bill which you presented to me for increasing the means of spiritual instruction in populous parishes, by making a portion of the revenue of the-church available fur the endow ment of additional ministers. confidently trust that the wise audbenevolent in tentions of the legislature will be aided by the zeal and lilx rality of my subjects, and that better provisions will thus be made for public worship and for pastoral super intendence in many districts of the country. I view with satisfaction the passing of the act for removing doubts respecting tl e jurisdiction of the Church of Scotland in the admission of ministers, and , for securing to the people and the courts of the church the full exercise of their respective rights. _ It is my earnest hope that this measure will tend to ensure-religious peace in Scotland, and to avert the dangers which have threatened a sacred institution of the utmost importance to the happiness and welfare of that part of my dominions. I continuo to receive from all foreign powers assu rances of their friendly disposition, and of their earnest desire for maintenance of pence. Gentlemen of the House of Commons, I thank you for the readiness and liberality with which you have voted for the supplies for the current year. It will be my constant object to combine °strict regard to economy with the consideration which is due to the exigo,nrirs of the public service. Afy Lords and Gcn , lemen, • In some di ztricti of \Vales the public peace has been interrupb-d by hiu-loss cornbiliarb,is and disturbances unconnected witli Cl.l.lAes. I have adopted the ri.,asurss which I deem-d best calculated for the reprssion of 3.ltrage. and f..r tile detection and pun ,kishm ‘nt of t I have at the same tllue directed an inquiry to hj ",shade into the circumstances which led to insubordina tion and violence in a part of time coll:ary usually dis tinguished for goal order and willing obedience to the law? I have obwrve 1 with the deepcst concern, the per efforts which are made to stir up discontent and distffection among my subjects in Ireland, and to excite them to demand a repeal of the legislative un ion. ,Altas been and ever will be my earnest desire to ad 'Minister the go cernmeat of the country in a spirit of t justice 111111 impartiality, and to co-operate with ' . :..iantent in effecting such amendments in the exist ' Ala laws as may tend to improte the social condition sadto dcvelorre the natural resources of Ireland. From a deep conviction that the legislative union 411.n0t leas essential to the attainment of these objects :that to the strength and stability of the empire, it is my finn determination, with your support, and under the blessings of Di‘ iae Providence, to maintain invio late that greatkond of connexion between the two coun tiles. I have forborne from requiring additional powers for the counteraction of designs hostile to the concord and welfare of my dominions, as well from my unwilling ness to distrust the efficiency of the .rdinary law, as from my reliance on the good sense and patriot iAM of my people, and on the solemn declaration of Parliament in support of the legislative union. I feel assured that those of my faithful subjects as ho have influence and authority in Ireland, will discour age to the tamest of their power a system of pernicious agitation which disturbs the industry and retards the -improvement of that country, and excites feelings of mutual distrust and animosity between difierent classes of people. A NEW FASHIONED FAN Some years ago, in Natchez, Miss., Prof. 'Mafia • was announced to preach in that city on a certain day. The fame of the gifted cu ator had preceded him, and every person in the city of Bluffs was anxious to hear him. Somehow the news happened to reach the hovel of an old woman, who, perhaps, had not heard a ser mon for a quarter of a century; and very seldom went out into the gotta. She determined to hear the stran ger. It being excessively warm weather at the time, and having no fan, she started to purchase one. She got to a store where they happened to know her, and, aware of her ignorance, they determined to have some fun. They told her they had just received a new fail). roiled fan, a very beautiful article, and handed a com mon gill IP atoms! She tried its power to raise a breeze and was perfectly delighted with it. To church she went; the house being crowded, she took her seat near the pulpit. The text was selected, and the speaker ! progressed and warmed with his subject, and so' did the old woman, who now 'nought her fan to her face, and commenced blowing away as if her salvation de pended upon her keeping cool. This attracted the at . t e nsion of the audience and the speaker looked down to see what was the matter. His eye caught the old women—he stopped and smiled at the ridiculous fig ure she cut. The old woman observed him looking at her, and cried .out 'Go it, my magnolia, tress God I'se all attentien." The audience fainted, the curtain drop ped, and we left; but the image of the old woman with tier new faille yet before us. , 'Ala," said a juvenile grammarian of the f nninine geed e r yesterday; when she returned from one of the '0!. public sclwols--"ma, mayn't! take some of the currant *hi on the sideboard?"

IA was not long, however, before the young miss was found "diggin" into both. , "Did I not tell you," said thn maternal parent, in a somewhat angry tone, "not to touch them?" "You said no twice, ma," said the precocious girl, "and the schoolmistress says that two negatives are equal to an affirmative, so I thought you meant that I should cat them." The mother sat down upon the safe, and said that "be talents sorni people's children had for learning was lustosishiug!—Piealune. A.

B FOSTER, Jr. of Bradford ALLEGIIESY Hantion.—We have seen it stated in some of the city papers, that the Councils of Allegheny had authorized the construction of a. steam boat har bor, at an expense of $30,000, an•d that the job had al ready been contracted for. We arc informed that this is a mistalie,nasachordiaance passel the Councils, and theonlystep taken was toauthori ze the finance committee tonscertain on what terms the money necessary to corn plete the improvement could be borrowed. We are also informed that two citizens of Allegheny have offend to loan the money on favorable terms, and it is probable that the city will accept the offer and go on with the improvement We think the advent ages which the citizens of Alle gheny may derive from the construction of this steam boat harbor is very questionable, and we greatly fear that a little experience will slew them that they have involved themselves in a heavy debt for an improve ment from which they will never derive any solid bene fit. However, if the improvement is paid for in real money, and not by another emission of shinplasters as many assert was in contemplation, it will be no loss to the other portions of the community, and the people o f Allegheny alone, will have to pay fur the whistle. We third: that every prudent citizen of both cities should raise his voice aqainst the scheme of projecting any further improvements on the credit of shinplaster issues, at leers until those in circulation are redeemed. With the state, county and city emissions, we have enough in all conscience to satisfy the widie, of the most reckless rag: money advocate, and if filly thou:and more should be added to the amount now iilloat. our curiamey matters would be in a roost pitiable e.indition. We therefore hope that the information of the po.:sibil ity of our neighbors being able to effert a loam if they mus: go on with their doubtful improvement, will turn out to be true, and that they will abandon the idea of issuing any more shinplasters until they get out of debt for the old emission. THE AUCTiON LAW. — The new law io relation tu the Auction business, in this city, has been in operation for about six months, without pro luring any of the re markable results so confidently predicted by those who took an active part for and against its adoption. Those who advocated the measure of making the business of auctionecring free to all who uvmid pay the required license, and assured us that the business community would derive great advantug 's from the expected ex tension of trade by public sales, hove not found their al ticipations realized. But 011 e additional auction house has been established in the city, and that branch of bu siness has increased very inconsiderably compared with what we were induced to expect by the friends of the new On the, other hand, the very unfavorable results zoni cipated by those who opposed the change, are not per ceivable. The auction dealers in tinselled trash, and damaged ware?, whose advent was looked for as a cer tain consequence of the new law, have not made their appearance as yet, nor do we hear any tidings of them. The business is carried on by honorable dealers of es tablished reputation incur community; withont, a, we can see, any of the disastrous effects that were anticipa ted by some. So, we find that although ours is unquestionably a great city; great in the industry and talents of her me , chanics and her business men; great in the nature and extent of her resources, and elements of prosperity— still the movemepts within her limits du not attract the attention of the people all along the Atlantic coast-, and they have not availed themselves of this new law, to come here and make fortunes. JCDGE BttAcKENRIDGE..—TiIe Globe of Thursday contains a long article relative to the intercourse be tween Gen. JACKSON andJudgc B alcx r.sttroc.E. A letter from Gen JACKSON, dated in January lust is giv en, in which all the facts alluded to in his letter to his friend in this city, are mentioned. A letter is also pub lished front Gov. \V. P. DUVAL., of Florida, ilia which the affair of Judge 13.'s leaving the court in the midst of a trial, is stated. This letter is dated in the year 183'2. So, it would seem that this story, which the Judge said had been circulated only concerning his fath er, hasbeen current respecting himself fur many years, long before Gen. Jackson alluded to it. We may look for another long drawn letter from Judge 8., we sup pose, in explanation of Guy. DUVAL's allusions. A DASIIING LC T OF HORSESIANSHIF ON TWO HORS- Is.—According to the American, the antimasonic candidate for Sheriff, rides two horses, with the hope of overtaking his democratic competitor. We fear that all the efforts of the Doctor will not be sufficient to accomplish his purpose, and if he does not get thrown before the end of the race, he will there find himself at a most extensiye distance from the winning post. There is one little item of consolation however we can give the antimasonic candidate, whether ho rides Jane or two horses, and that is that he will, like theirishman's h irse,O'Bolherem, most certainly irive all the others before ATTEMPT AT FORGERY. — Tha Baltimore Sun state:; that an attempt was Made on Saturday last, by some unknown person, to effect a forgery to the amount of about seven hundred dollars, on- the Mechanics' bank of that city. The check for the money bore the sig natime Of Mr. W.- W ao rl , auctioneer, and was sent to the bank by some unknown person From Barnum's City Hotel, with directions to forward the money to EIF.- cotes Mill. The check would have been promptly cashed but that suspicion arose in consequence of the direction which the money was to take, and on inquiry it was found t o be an want effort at forgery. Tat TIPPECA,SOZ cuss AGAlN.—Chief Justice Gib aon yesterday delivered the opinion of the Supreme COIXt in this case, AFFIRMING the Judgment of the Court. So the great Whig party will at last have to pay for their Dinner. BE READY.—It io only fifteen days until the elcc tion. Whatever preparations are to be made for the contest should be made at once so that there may be no draw backs when the day comes. It is of the utmost importance that every voter should ascertain whether he has been ♦SSEssED, and if he is nut, to have the mistake rectified at once, otherivise he will lose his vote on the day of election. We would earnestly impress on the minds of the Democratic voters to ace to this. NATION AL REPEAL CONN' E N TION.—The Philadel phia Chronicle says, that delegates to the National Repeal Convention, assembled at the Tabernacle, New York, on Wednesday. Robert Tyler was elected Pre sident, without a dissentient voice, in a cotmnittee of forty--five, consisting of one delegate from each associ ation. lie made a neat speech on taking the chair.— Tho Secretary read the report of the number of Associ ations from each State, say , I7—of whiM there are from Maine, 1; Massachusetts, 8; Rhode Island, 2; Con necticut, 3; Now York, 16; Pennsylvania, 3; Maryland, 1, District Columbia, 1; North Carolina, 1; Georgia, 1; Wisconsin, L The Chair appointed committees to draft an address and resolutians, and a committee to prepare rules for the government of the convention. SECOND DAY.-A tlO o'clock the convention was called to order by the President, Robert Tyler, Esq.— The report of the Committee on Rules and Regula tions was presented, which provides that the same rules which govern the House of Representatives of the United States be adopted for the government of this Convention. A series of IN:solutions were then presented, and af ter some appropriato speeches from Iklljor Davezac and John McKeon, Esq., were adopted. a law number of one of our fashionable mag azines, there is a very pretty story of a sightless youth, who was noble, and rich, arid amiable, as all magazine heroes are; who is made to fall in love with a maiden who was notbeautiful, but who, like all magazine he roines, has every other imaginable good quality. The blind lover wishes at least to learn his fate, and cue evening as he leaves his inistres.z, the auth 4 . makes him ask in tender and pathetic tetras, at what hour in the morning he can see her. This little error, however, does no harm, for the appointment is made, and a mar riage is the result of the conference—we had almost said interview.

It is such men as Macready, respected by the higher closes of society, and esteemed by all who know him, fur great purity of character and unsullied integrity, ho adds lustre to the profession and elevates the dra matic. art. His engagement at the Park will revive a just and delicate taste for the plays of the immortal bard, and tit?: sterling English productions; and we ex pect to see many of our old citizens, who, in the decay of the Drama, have not for years been visitors at the Park Theatre, taking their seats nightly in the Dress Circle during the engagement of Macready.

Transcript thus unravels the mystery which has liven throwd ardned the lute murder au female iu the Parish of .Caldwell: We have been put in possession of such information as leaves not a shadow of doubt dint the 11 ante of the young lady so brutally murdered a few weeks since in the parish of Caldwell, was Harriet Cummins. Capt. Goodrich, of the steamboat Levi Welch, informs us that this young lady came on hoard his boat at the mouth of Red River, and was conveyed to Columbia, nn the Ouachita river. (about 15 miles from where the body was found) where she was landed on the 17th or 13th of July. She was accompanied to the boat by Mr. White, and another person, one of Mann, Capt. G. does not re member which, paid her passage. She stated thnt she had property corning to her in the neighborhood of Tunica. from which sho had as yet received nothing but her education, and was apprehensive of unfair dealing on the part of those having it in possession,and was then on her way to see an uncle residing within 10 miles of Columbia, to get him to settle her affairs, and aid her in coining into possession of her rights. All traces of the lady were lost at Columbia—and there is every reason to believe (from the description) the body found on the 231 inst. was that of the unfor tunate girl alluded to. She is represented as a mod est intelligent girl, as having possessed a good educa tion. The fiendish act must have been perpetrated by some person or persons following her for that purpose from the mouth of Red River, interested, perhaps, in preventing the interference of her uncle in regard to the property in Tunica. For the sake of humanity, we hope the perpetrators may be ferreted out and pun ished. THE CONEWTTEE With sentiments o f high respect, We are your friends, Charles Shaler, Wtn. Sirwell, A.

PORTER THE MYSTERRKS MURDER Hearn BXLL FOUNDING,—The India papers contain a curious account of the casting of an enor mous bell at Rangoon, as an offering from the King to the great temple of Shoey Dalton, in that city. It is stated that °,OOO men were employed at the 500 for ges or windpipes put in requisition on this occasion— that is, 10 persons to a pump and forge. - Dressed in their gayest attire, all the principal officers of the town, and chief men of the surrounding rillazes, havin .1. made their supplication, commenced operation at four forg es,' constructed for appropriate use; and then followed the active movements of the five hundred plebeian forgers. A hundred and seventy of silver, (nearly Gl7 pounds) and one hundred and fifty of gold (nearly 5.13 pounds) Were added by the people to . the metals which I had been provided by the King, besides a vast number of gold and silver ornaments, of which no account was taken. In four days and five nights, the work was completed. The dimensions of the bell are said to be seven cubits in diameter, twenty one in circumference, eleven in height, and one and two inches thick. The weight of the. metal, of which on account wis taken, wiis.fre hundred tons. It was ordered that the bell should rest in its mould for forty days; during which period neither the sound of cannon, musket, nor even that of a lice mortar should be heard in Rangoon, lest I the concussion of the atmosphere should crack the mighty mass.-47tglisk paper. tommunications.

Editors.—l have often wondered why the theatres of this country enjoy so very little of public patronage, and why the "elite" of society is so very seldom soon in the temple of Thalia; and it has oc curred to me that the strong religious sentiment of the population, the very hilis sense fur decency and mor als, and lastly but not least, the very imperfect state of the Stage, might occasion this indifference. I can not entirely agree with the opinion of the "beau monde" of this country, and shall endeavor to prove, that the stage can be mado the representative of mor als an I fashion, as well as any other place, and that only a more liberal patronage is required to induce Managers to put pieces on their bills that are instruc tive and moral, while on the other side, as long as the play is only patronized by the rabble, the self-interest of the actor compels him to produce mere pines of spectacle and humbug. In Europe, where a particular branch of the police watches over these institutions, where the perform ance of equivocal and immoral pieces are prohibited, we find the theatre to be a reunion of all that is fash ionable and moral, and it is even not unusual to see preachers of the gospel there. The I etter pieces of the treat dramatists of all countries are representa tions of the good and evil spirit of mankind, and while the spectator is anxiously- watching for the triumph of the first, he is pleased to see the latter conquered or punishes!. The child there obtains the first practi cal view of the consequences of good and bad deeds; it beeomes acquainted with the language, with poetry, and literature; the novice of society, of customs and manners; perceive the practical working of these mighty engines of mankilid, he returns home with the intention to imitate the good he has seen and to shun immorality and vice. And how much better is such a place of amusement than the common places of ren dezvous, which are now frequented by our youths; how much better would it be for thmn to enjoy a few hours in the company of parents, sisters and 1 . /ands, than to meet at places where the watchful eye of the parents, the compassionate care of the sister cannot follow them! It is true, there is no police in this country which could regulate the bill of the manager, but pub lic opinion is far more powerful than any police, and ut public opinion below the exercise of the censorship. If the leaders of good society would only begin to fre quent such places, if the ladies would throw their om nipotent influence into the scale, I am sure we would 5C^ an entire revolution of the stage. IV here beauty and dignity is assembled, the rabble does not dare to show its face, and the spectator has nothing to fear from mixed company, or from the outbreak of Lint man roaring and laughing. The actors would be in spired by the presence of a fashionable and intelligent public, they would rouse all their abilities to be worthy of patronage! TALMA. THE CONFESSIONAL In a town some fifty miles from Boson, the members of a relig,ions society were in the habit of holding con f rence meetings in the church, in whi h they made a kind of coafession, technically called recounting one's -myerienne." A very pious member of the church, Mr. D., was in the habit of inviting his neighbor L. who was not a member, to attend these meetings—at one of which Mr D. got up and stated to the congre gation that he was a great sinner—that he sinned daily with his eyes open—that he willingly and knowingly sinned—that gimilai'sS: dwelt not in him—that he was iihsolutely and totally d-praved—that nothing but the boundless mercy and Intl cite goodness of Gad could save hint from eternal damnaiion. After this canfessdni by Mr. D., Mr. L. (who by ac ,:id nit bad been [azed cia the "anxious sent") rose with the most imperturbable gravity, and stated that he had little to say for himself, but the brethren would remember that he had lived for twenty-five years the Nearest neighbor of Mr. I).; that he knew him well— mr.re intimately- than any other man—and it gave him pleasure, because he con:d do it with more sincerity, to confirm the truth of all brother ). had coaf_•ssed of him self. When Mr. L. su tLiwn, (under die viAblo and audi ble smile of the whole e•mgregi)a, the parson not ex cept...4lo Mr. D. went up to him and said, "You are a ras.-al ;and a liar; and I'll lick you as ;will as you gtt mt of the ehrirch."—Phila. Ledger. COL. HAMILTON'S NAVAL ARCHBECIT RAL SAW-MILL. We do nut know when we have derived more satis faction from the inspection of any work of art, than in the examination we have been permitted to make of the practical working of this truly ingenious and valu able machine. In view of the perfection of its adap tearless to whatit was invented for, as well as of the, extreme importance and value of that great object, we must doubt if there be any work of modern invention more worthy of admiration. Its design is to cut out the largest ship timber into any given - form or shape, curved and bevelled, all in one single operation. It is designed to be to Naval, what the common saw mill is to the ordinary, archit .cture. anal they who have had an oppertunity of observing the loborat the ship yards, of handling and working the massive timbers of which larger vessels are composed, can readily realize what an immense labor saving machine that of Col. Hamil ton's must be. The name he has given it conveys its design exactly “curvillincar and compound bevel saw ing machine." The inventor tells us that the United States Naval contractors have fully expressed themselves in favor of this valuable work dart, and have, after careful exam. illation given him certificates that this is their opinion, and mariner, that the government ought to possess it self of the patent We hope tlii. win 0 .tutu. The best oak trees, say the best and m ist experienced judges in these matters, are the least inclined to grow straight, and this invention thus makes the choicest of them as available as those which though straighter are not always so good. We hope that the government, or some association of ship builders will obtain the right to use this improvement, in our own city. There is the malting of a fortunein it, and it is fit, moreover, that our townsman's (the inventor's) unremitting labor, ingenuity and outlay of expense. during years of ap plication, should he competentlp rewarded by the public appreciatioa and approbation.—N.

Experiments have been made which show that air compressed into the fiftieth port of its volume has its elasticity increased in a fifty-fold proportion; and that if continuously contracted at that tate, from its own in cumbent weight, acquires, at the depth of thirty-four miles, the density of water, while water itself would have its density more than doubled at the depth of nine ty-three miles. In deseerahinr, therefore, towards the centre of die earth, at (say) four thousand miles, the condensation of ordinary substances would surpass the utmost power of conception. Dr. Young (Matthew) Sap that even steel would be compressed into one fourth, and stone into o Se-eighth of its ordinary bulk at the earth's centre. It is too true, that we are yet but imperfectly informed ,of the law of compresion, as it opera;es on solid bodies beyond a certain limit.— If credence be gives to the results of those experiments made by Perkins, us well as to the opinions of Sir Isaac Newton—who was pleased to assert that so porous was matter, that the whole earth maybe compi eased into a solid mass ofone cubic foot—we have much yet to corn prebend on this subject.
