LBTTCIl FROM HAVANA. The Affair of the Crtsctnt City. We have received from a reliable louree in Havana, the following account of the transaction in connection with the late visit of the Cresoent City to Havana: ( "Mr. William Smith, supercargo of the steamer Crescent City, had caused to be pub lished in the New York papers, an exaggera ted and false statement, respecting the se verity of the Spanish Government in Cuba. This statement accused Gen Canedo of the cruelly of having loaded young Cuban ladies with fetters and chains to their feet. This published falsehood, which was not denied by Mr. Smith, induced Gen. Canedo, to di rect his Secretary to write to Mr Drake, one of the owners or agents of the steamer, to inform him, that the Crescent City would not be allowed to enter the harbor of Havana, if Smith was on board, as he considered him' to be an enemy of Cuba, acting with those who had designs upon the Government. On the 3d of this month the Crescent City was signaled, but th...

From The Commercial Ailrertlnr. DANIEL WEBSTER. We have been favored with the perusal of a leiler written by Mr. Webster to an inti mate friend in this city, dated Franklin, May 3. 1846, frorri which we make the extract below, and which we are sure will be read at this lime with unusual interest. "I have made satisfactory arrangements respecting my house here, the best of which i that I can learfto it where it is, and yet be comfortable, notwithstanding the railroad. "This house faces due North. Its front windows look toward the river Merrimae. But then the river soon turns to the South, so that the Eastern windows look toward the river also. But the river has so deepened its channel in this stretch of it, wi'hin the last fif'.y years, that we cannot see its waters, without approaching it, or going back to the higher lands behind us. The history of this change is of considerable importance in the philosophy of streams. I have observed it practically, and know something of the theo r...

; i SUNBURY AME1UCAN AND SHAMOKIN JOURNAL. , From ths. Journal of Commerce, Oet, S7. 5 MB WEBSTER AKD MR. CALHOUN. Ia the notices of Mr. Webster the remark Is made that neither of the weighty tiio who o long occupied the attention and altiacted the admiration of the country, reached the Presidency. As long ago ai the second term oi Mr. Monroe,, the last of the revolu tionary line of Presidents, the cynical John Randolph predicted that no great man would ever again be elected President. Mr. Calhoun was deeply concerned and agitated by the dark clouds that overhung the Union, during the session of 1850, that had often, both in private and public, ex pressed his fears as to the result. Though holding life himself by a very frail tenure, he felt deeply for the country, and in his private conversations, spoke constantly of the subject. In one of these conversations, in February, 1850, a friend asked "What will Mr. Webster do 1" Mr. Calhoun promptly and energetically replied, lie will du ...
