A few weeks since we published 'a letter of mr. wit.Lis , giving n sketch ol the city ol Savannah. The speculations in which he indulge concerning it an J Charleston, are interesting, and no doubt substantially correct. Tho remarks respecting our concep tions ol groat men will strike tin; mind as pecularliarly hippy and philosophical. Ou Iho wholu it itt a readable document, which wo clip from tho Home Journal: Tho sensation of driving, through tho street of Sa vannah, ordinurily, is not vory pleasant.

With 11 presentiment (afterwiirdi coidirmrd), that, by go ng too early Nonh, I was leaving what linto conviilopcenco I hud picked up in 1 warmer climo, I emb;irked for Charlentnn on the evening of iho .lib ol M:iy arrived tho next murniiig, after a rough, cold and thoroughly uncomfortable panij;e. Q iito pmn-trated bysua-iicktiPHsaud inllttcnza, nnd hiving more! desiro to see Charleston than any oilmr point of my : winter's travel, I had never found illness more iintime-1 ly. Wo rejoined here somn of our felhtw-voyagers in the tropic, but Ihe moat admired mid b.-loved of that i happy company lay dying under Iho same roof with us, and a melancholy a'lncna weighed upon all who had known her. Altogether, I obtained but an imperfect and clouded view o llie great inetmfiolid of tho SjuiIi. My best remembrances of it were such as do not come within a traveler's chronicle the meet ing with valii"d friends and nrquainlnnc.es. It must pass for the broken page of my journal to bo rewritten, if possible, wiih a better know led go here-afrer.In what little I saw of Charleston, iu my mopinci-nbout, I was impressed with tho nir it wears of a town built for gentlemen. It is a littlo behind-hand with paint and repairs, but, in tho contrivance and rbarac ter of its private residences, there is t lie original imprint atiil legible, nf first-owners who built exclusively each nno for taste and comfort of his own. Thro is none of the amputated look given to city building by tho more utilituriau taste ol iho North. Kvrn in houses of very mi ib-rato preiensioiis.it was quite evident that tfio plan had not been sent back to tho architecture, shaved of all its superfluities ol olegaoco merely. In the hay windows, verandahs, odd angles, pnriiroeaaiid gardens, and in the nnsiereotjpt d variety with which the caprices of ornament had been combined. Urn look oT refinement quite at its ease, and apprehensive ol neither eclipse nor criiicism, is very manifest. Kvory house looks as if tho same fitnily bad always lived in it. Without ulricl architectural tale, this atmosphere nf household guds may bo made to envelope n homo with an individuality more attaining to children ami more inspiring ol respect ; and I must own, lhat to my eye, it is nu innovation upon art worthy of studying.In ihe days when North and South were moro intimate tho gay society of the two latitude holding an etpmlly divnled empire over Hallston and Saratoga Charleston was tho unquestionable Corinth, fimn which enme the best models nf gentlemen and ladies. Wiih iho plantation cmmervniiHin ol family custom of sending sons to Kuropo for education general b ibit of yearly travel, and prevailing tone of courtesy nnd chivalry banded flown from n superior class of fust inhabitants this mny easily bo accounted for. Tho mark ol it would still impress a stranger in walking the street nf Charleston or looking in iiton its society. Shouldered nnido as the citv is, somewhat, perhaps, by tho current of u Progress," and becalmed in the still water of such reipeclabiliiy and dignity ns this " fast " ajje vilt l ave In hind, its gayetics probably as emhte, at the present lime, a higher hied class ol oo'ii and women than any other capital of mir inuntry.

Until mm teet a lamnus place, its ft r tot men lorui a consitcuoUH part ol ttie Mont pirinre nl it.

Extract of a letter written in 1792. Well, I have seen your friend, ar;d find him to bn exactly what you described him as being a humorist. Ilo seems to have imparted much of that character to every thing around him. His servants are nil admirably disciplined to second his whims, nud his very furniture is, for the most part, adapted to iho same purpose. Thi put mo upon my guard ; nnd there was hardly nny thing in tho mom that I did not touch with npprehccsioti. No trick, however, was practised upon mo; nnd. us I found subsequently, I was indebted for such indulgence to ono which was reserved for mo at night, 11 net which was such as perhaps nil my English phlegm would not have euabh-d mo tn hear with pa-ticnci). I escaped, however, being put to tho proof, by iho merest accident the arrival ! a poor Scotch surveyor, who wu thought a fitter subject for llie often repeated experiment. The Scotchman was treated with cxlremo hospitali ty; no was neipen to everything 10 cxcohb; nis glass whh never nnowea to aranu mil or empty lor one minute. The potations were suspended not until, and only while the cloth was laying fors'ipper, during nnd after which, they were resumed with renovated energy. Our entertainer was tike tho landlord described by Addison; ihe liquor soemod to have no other elVect upon him than upon any other voiscl in iho house. It was not so wiih tho Scotch miest. who was bv thi; time much farther advanced upon tho cruize of intox icnlion than half seat over. In this state he was conducted to his chamber a fine, lofty Gothic nparlinent, with n bedstead that (teemed cooval with tho building. I say seemed; for thnt was by no means llie case, it being in reality a modern piece 01 structure, it was ol dark mahogany, with its four posts extending completely to the ceiling of the chamber. Tho bed, however, was not more than about two feet from tho floor, thn bolter to enable the party to get into it. Tho Scotchman, with a .1 fli al ot nssiHtiuico, was soon timlrcKaed. and nnd his body deposited in litis place of repose. Ail the party then retind, wishing him a good night, nnd removing tho cnndlo for fenr of accidents. Wlieii ifio door was cloned, I was for Iho first time made acquainted wiih the structure of tho bedstead, which our host considered us hia musterpieco. Upon the touching of a spring, outside ihe door, the bed was so acted upon by a pulley, that it ascended slowly and smoothly through the four po.tts, until it cninn within two or three leet of tho ceiling. The snoring of the Scotchman was tho signal for touching the spring, and ho was soon at iho proper altitude. itie aervauts required 110 instructions how tn net. In one moment the house was in nu uproar ; cries of "fire! fire!" was heard in diflerent directions, A pile of shavings was set in ablaze opposite the win dow where poor Sawney slept. Tho hid lord voice I was continually Heard, exclaiming, " (ioml heavens ! I save the poor Scnich gentleman, jl possible; tho flames' nave got into the room just miner him! ' At tins moment, we hoard turn foil, and bellow out. A sudden silence took place every light waa extin-1 guialied, and tho whole house soenieil in ho mined in iho most profound repose. The Scotchman's voice ouid alone he heard, ronrinc out. in I he Inch dialed of his country, for &siaiauce. At length, two ol iho men servants, in lhir shirts. entered Ihe room, wiih a candle just lit, and j owning, as if jn aroused from their sleep. They found hmi sprawling 011 the lloor. o, dear, sir, w hat is tho matter with you 7 Mattr!" says he; " why, im't tho house on fire?" Not at all, sir." What was the reason of tho crios of fire, then T" Ulcus you, sir, you must Intvo beon dreaming; why there's not so much ns a momo stirring, 11 mi his honor and the whole family have been asleep theo three henrs." The Scotchman now g ive up all credit in tho testimony of his own senses. "I must ha' been dreaming, indeed, and must ha' hurt myself by falling nut of the bed " " Hurt yourself, sir! not tniirh, I hope, the bed Is so low;" and by this time it hail been made to descend to it first level. The poor Sent wns quite confused ; qni'o nsbnined at disturbing thofimily; begged a llmuMtid pardons; accompanied the servants to the door, closed it after them, and was mice moro left in tho dark. Hut the last art of tho pantomime was not performed. The spring bad been immediately touched upon closing tho door ; nnd tho bed was soon beyond the reach of our guest. We could hear him groping about, and ntieting frequent ejaculations of astonishment. He easily found iho bed post, but it was in vain he could endeavor to get in. He moved hi hands up and down. Hla leg was often lilted by way of stepping in, but nlwnys encountered the lloor upon its descent. Ho uttered exclamations nf surprise, not loud, but deep, for fenr of again disturbing the family. Ho concluded himself to bo in lint haesiou of some evil spirit. In short, when it was fonnd, by his silence, thnt he had given up llie lak ns h ip,-osa, and had disposed ol hiimelf upon one of ihe chairs, the bed was allowed to idide down again, and in Iho morning Sawney couhl not but expres his astonishment nt not being able to find il iu iho dark. Chamber' Edinburgh Journal "THE FLAG OF OUR UNION," Ono thing but been established by Captisti Si-hll) ler Hamilton' recent investigations respecting the national ll ig, namely, that it means, and was intended to mean, Union: It crow out id Ihe Unton Jack.

Far hack in tho mistv period of nn heroic nuo. them lived upon tho summit of Crow-Hill an honest Dutchman, entitled Vaudordonk. He bought the spot, with nil itB rugged acres and stubborn globe, with guilders earned by hnrd tugging in the Father-land. Hut Iho Dutch guildors wero by 110 meaua buried without interest in the vaults of this rocky bank. Tho golden grain waveu year alter year 11 pun the sloping lufl-sidcs, and by ihe time lhat bis belly became nortlv. Vander dunk had become rich. He minded hi own business, nud seldom ajmko except when spoken to, utid then in grunting alhrmative, 'Yaw, yaw.' He waa Iho pic-ture of dogged resolution, as ho was seen in relief over against ihe sky on Crow Hill; whacking with a longgouu mo 1 ron 1 ul nones ot the thick kneed oxen always slowly plodding hut surely gaining. Tho shadow of hi capacious barns swallowed up hia snug little house, which waa all kitchen. For he had a fancy to ok out burns wiih hovels, nnd hovels with long aheds, making a tunny court, or hollow square, wherein a multitude of chickens ransacked iho chull' nt the heels of tho thoughtful kino. It wns astonishing by what alow, and jiiot, and imperceptible degree his riclien crow. For it was scarcely noticed when he drove in an additional noil, or extended an enclosure, till all nt once tho neighbor, looking upon tho circum-vullntinn about Crow-Hill, opened their eves. 114 if awakened liom n dream, and exclaimed, ' He's rich!'

A he verged towards hia majority, and showed no signs of ndvnnce in intellect, but rather received reinforcement of tho queer devils by which ho was oci-iisionally possessed, tits future prospects occupied no small portion of ihe rellecting moment of Vanderdonk, na ho smoked hia evening pipo on ihe porch.

Now this boy brought him into sail trouble at ihis period, by an unfortunate adventure, which I (-hall relate: ' Among the flocks of crows which w hoeled inces santly, in summer ami winter, above hi dominion, and iron which 'Lrnw-Hlll derived it name, Hans waged a continual war. A hundred bit of tin, wood, and looking-glass fluttered at tho end of long strings, attached to pel, , in the eorn-fielik Numerous scare crow were set up, na horriblo ns could bo invented by ihe imauiualion id' Hans, Moreover, ns occasion olibred, he made a successful shot with a long gun wiih b ing-iiiuieii, queer men, wilicn li:ul lielongeil to his grand father in Holland, nud had descended lo him as an hoir-loom. Sometime he made the crowadrimk on corn snaked in whi-ky, and a they reeled abi ut iho hillocks, knocked them on the head. Hut there wn onn crow, nlmost white, and aaid tn bo a century old, held sicred by the neighbors a an Egyptian Ibis. He walked n I most umhaiiiiGiiinhed among the pigeons, by which aisociation his nature had become lamed, nnd bis harsh caw Wim nt last modi fled into a melting coo. The neighbors had frequently said, ' Vanderdonk, don't shool thai bird,' and limine religiously obeyed the mandate, nnd regarded his guest Mill) a partial eye; lor he had been toht Hint ill-luck would he suro to attend him the moment that he nud hated the destruction of the crow.

This ancient visitor. whom tho very king-bird forboro to pick nt, out of veneration, was known by the f imiliariiamenf Jimmy, nnd happy was he who in a cold winter would put in 111 way a lew hiierai iiaiuiiiii 01 corn. 'One day, Derrick, in one of hi wild moods, took tho long gun Irom the corner of tho kitchen and tiraytd away. Ho did not return at high noon in get 111 dinner, but towards sun-down, just as Hie old woman had come from milking iho cows, ho burnt into the house wiih n Inud laugh, violently siruck the butt end of the gnu on the floor, rammed his hand into hi poeketa, lilted with motiled feathers, nnd throw the dead Jimmy into bit mother's p.

Petrified firn moment, he sat still in ttie high-lucked chair ; then spilling the bleeding bird nut of her lap, nnd rising in a rage, she pointed wiih her linger alternately at the victim and iho guilty Derrick, as Honnea, returning from hi evening work and seeing what hail been done, crooked his MiHit arm partially closed his list, and aim ii n violent blow nt his son's ear. 1 When the people had been informi d of tho massa cre accomplished by Drrrb'k. they exclaimed, ' O Hub! what tmvo you uune r inn nave snot jimmy ! Wo would not aland in your aline forall the coin iti it your mother has in her stocking; 110,1101 lor Crow-Hill ! ' Hut Dirk only grinned utid giggled, ami nppenred pleat ed with his exploit. A for Vanderdonk, on tho occasion aforonid, bo anon nshrt had somewhat recovered fmin liisexcitement ho look tip Jimmy by lh-j legs, dug a deep hole, and buried him iu the g irden, exclaiming as ho resumed hi seat and reloaded hit pipe, 'Had lug! bid lug!' In fact, ihat very night llie worthy couple had at aree relirod, when a loud cawing was heard thrniiiih the house, aim soon alier. In their inexprcsstlde horror, they observed by iho lilit of the iiidoii, tho old crow perilled upon iho bed-post. Vanderdonk rose fmni his bed and attempt) d to reach him with ihe hnmlle of a broom-slick, but only struck the unresisting air. The imago still remained, nnd it reeatedly opened lis mouth, crying pathetically, 'Caw! cow!' while the ring-dovea and pigeons under llie eaves uttered nil night an uhilaiing lamentation. 'Had lug! bad lug!' repeated Hans, covering up his head wnh the clotlo s. And assuredly bail luck pies- nily overlook him. The next tpring.minn after In- had planted his crops, it waa announced tn him one day thnt nil the crow in Ihe neighborhood were pulling up his corn, without any regard to his signal He went out, and with one discharge of hi long gun drove them all awny.

The mod of doing business in Concrross is thus graphically and truthfully described by the AVm 1 ark Express . The way law are now inndn in Congress it inch that vicious legislation will never be corrected until the no proprintinn bills are killed, and auextrn session iscom- polled, as a consequence ol the loss of these bill. A iptasi revolution, in thus stopping thn supplies, nmv awaken the people, perhaps, lo tne outrage and peril that exist in the now long prevailing habit of enacting 1110 most important low irom 11 o'clock lo li o'clock 111 the morning, between lite nicht beloro and the (lav of the 4ih of March. For ten years past the halls ot' (he Capitol have been ihrougid day and night in March, or on thn cloning days of the loon aossiona. with an army of lobby members, pushing all sorts nf Miings inm me appropriation tin in, aim exeritmi nil arta of influence, illegitimate generally, and such as is 10 na deplored. 1 ho committee roonia are hi led wiih wine ami brandy by tome of these lobby members, to wtiom somebody surrenders ttieso rooms, nntl henco it it not wonderlul that, amid tbeuiler exhaustion uf con linunut sessions night nnd day, the human frames of even ihe honest and wiicbl'ul givo nut, and lhat scheme! are undertaken and measure carried which. In cooler mo-meats, could receive tittle else but a corrupt support. Healdes, oh Congress nowadays will do littlo or noihins bul what it doea iu the appropriation bills, there ia 0 kindly disposition lo engraft upon ihemsiirh measures os meinbertdeem "good,"upon which otherwise there would be no earthly bopj ol iciion. 1 his considera tion, taken in connection with the fact lhat corruption really desires no action upon the appropriation bills nil the very last hours of tho session, when, amid (be noise and conlusion, corruption can best conceal itsell, eua h;es ihe bad 10 mix up with iho good such a enrioMty at the lost civil and diplomatic bill presents: a bill which 110 five men tn either llnuao of Congress under stood, nr count uiaiersianu, unlets ihey were on tin committees of Conference. .

Tho remarks respecting our concep tions ol groat men will strike tin; mind as pecularliarly hippy and philosophical. Ou Iho wholu it itt a readable document, which wo clip from tho Home Journal: Tho sensation of driving, through tho street of Sa vannah, ordinurily, is not vory pleasant.
