GAMBLING. We take from a New Orleans paper the following graphic account of the degradation to which the pursuance ot thisalluring and dreadful vice frequently reduces its votaries. How Ladies sometimes Gamble and wear Ike Breeches.— We see by an exchange paper that a story had been published in New Fork about a certain lady, who lives in the habit ot frequenting a hell in the lower part of the city, in disguise' and was said to have lost 1500 or 82000 there. The truth of the matter was doubted at the time; but an adventure recently occurred that tends to confirm the belief that the fair sex do (occasionally and on the sly, indulged in the baneful passion of gamb'ing. For some weeks past a man of youthful appearance wearing mustachois was observed to be an occasional visiter to a well known house in the Park Row; where he played with various success but for moderate stakes. At lenght on a night, a week or two ago, he tendered a check for 8200 to the banker, and in an under t...

GREAT AND DESTRUCTIVE FIRE. From the Erie Gazette. Our town early on Saturday evening last, was visited by the most destructive conflagration ever witnessed here. The lire originated in the barn of Messers Bird and Hart, stage proprietors of this place, and so rapid was its progress, that eleven of their horses, seven stage coaches, all the loose property and fixtures of their extensive establishment, were sonsumed. These buildings being immediately in rear of the Masonic House, Kept by Mrs. VVm H. Champlin, that building, was soon enveloped in flames, and is now, together with the block of frame buildings extending west as far as the Eagle tavern one mass of mouldering ruins. At one stage of the fire it was (bought impossible to save the extensive block of buildings, and occupied as stores, on the east side of French street; and conse quently every removable article was placed on the public square, until it was completely filled with merchandize, furniture &c.

Supreme Court Decision. As we supposed, the Supreme Court have decided, that the appointments made by Mr. Porter, shall continue. We never but for a moment doubted but that would be the case. As soon as we took any time to examine the constitution, we at once gave it as our opinion, that Gov. Porter had the power to appoint. Those, whose peciliar wisdom saw it in another light, and felt inclined to charge all who differed with them with dishonesty, will probably learn that the jaundiced eyes of Prejudice will as often mislead, as dishonesty.

Self Esteem. i. W. Shugertthe Editor of the Venan . go Democrat alter informing his patron,, that he shall ask for a small divide of the spoils, says, "we wil! show them what kind of fish a toad is.'' Shakspear's dingy hero Othello says, -I'd rather be a toad." But we had no idea that in this our day, there were men, who owned that they were already toads If the organ of self esteem is not stiongly developed on our contemporary's head, we shall be bound to disbelieve all about Phrenology. The Harrisburg Telegraph say that the Mr. Wilson appointed clerk to the Canal Board, is not a citizen of Pennsylvania. Formerly from Virginia, he has not yet obtained a residence in the State. Will some of our stranger hating people about this town, pour down their anathemas on Porter's Administration for appointing strangers. Do you not all recollect with what pious horror they abused Gavernor Ritner's Administration because we were appointed under it, who had ever been a citizen of Pennsy...

Gen. Harrison , Elenry CU and the V. S. Gazette. Our worthy cotemporary of the U.

DISCOVERY OF MUMMIES AT DURANGO, MEXICO. A million of Mummies, it is stated, has lately been discovered in the environs of Durango, in Mexice. They are in a sitting posture, but have the same wrapping, bands and ornaments ot the Egyptian. Among them was found a poignard of flint, with a sculptured handis, chaplets and necklaces, of alternately colored needs; fragments of bones polished like ivory, fine worked clastic tissues, (probably our modern India rubber,) eloth mockasins worked like those our Indians of toda», and bones of vipers. It remains to continue these interesting researches, and America will become another E gypt to antiquarians, and her ruins will go back to the oldest periods of the world, showing doubtles that the ancestors of the Mentezumas lived on the Nile, and their luxurious civilization was broken up and overpowered by the hardy hordes of Asiatic Tartars, who came down from the Berbring Starits and the Rocky Mountains.

The late Storm and Flood. FURTHER PARTICULARS.—The damige done by the flood in the village ol Westfield, Mass.is estimated at 925,000, The whole village west of the canal wae inundated. A letter from that place, published in the New Haven Herald says, The three expensive bridges over this river, averaging three hundred feet in length, were entirely swept away, and the only crossing place left over this river for a distance of twenty-five miles, is the Canal Aqueduct, at the north end of the village. The damage to the canal and the work8 connected therewith, is considerable; yet when compared with the loss of this village, it is but trifling. The canal and locks from this to the State line, have escaped uninjured, nor have we as yet heard of any damage to the canal in the direction of Northampton. From the Hartford Times, of Tuesday. We learn that the ice has lodged in the straits below Middletown, forminj a dam across the river 30 feet hi gh. This accounts for the extraerdinay...
