S T A I N E D P A G E The Poughkeepsie Engle indulges in these too juHt reflection! on the subject of resig­ nations in the army: Resignations.-- The late accounts from W ashington state that several more r e s i g n a ­ tions have been made out by officers of the ar­ my o f the U. States. If these resignations are to continue at the ra t e they have progress­ ed since the termination o f the recent com- paign at the south, there will soon be no re­ spectable officers left. Party favoritism, a- mong other evils has crept into the army, an ia producing such effects as might be antici­ pated. The most respectable and experienced officers find those who have no claims to ad­ vancement promoted over them, without re t • • - 1 V r ■ 1 1 - A _ things, and therefore they retire in disgust. If any fighting is done, the militia officers, i f anv are present, unhesitatingly claim all the credit, provided they have not been frightened out ofth e field, and if the commander will not give it to them, they are ready to challenge him in a single combat or assail him with mobs, as soon as he leaves his camp. It is not sur­ prising then that high minded and honorable men abandon a service from which they have little.to expect but a life of hardship, toil and danger, and i f they escape censure and dis­ grace, they can look for no reward worth pur­ suing. E x t r a o r d i n a r y C a s e o f a F e m a le H u s b a n d . A paragraph appeared in this paper on Satur^ day relative to a female who was found intox­ icated in the street, on Friday night, dressed in man’s clothes. Tho account she gave o f herself turns out to bo also false, or at least she has since told a different story, in conse­ quence of a further and more extraordinary discovery having been made in relation to her. On Saturday morning a decently dreseed w o ­ man called at the Police Office and asked to see James Walker, (the name by which the female called herself before her sex was dis­ covered) whom she said was her husband.— This woman was informed that the discovery had been made,& was permitted to see the per­ son in question, to whom however she declin­ ed speaking, and went away. In consequence o f this occurrence, James or rather Jane Walker was again brought before the m agis­ trate, and underwent another examination, in which she stated that she was a native of Liv­ erpool, that her real name is George Moore W ilson, and that George is a name commonly given to females in England; that both her parents died when she was very young, and that when she was 12 years old, in conse­ quence of being ill treated by her friends, she ran away from them, put on boy's clothes, and made her way to Scotland, the native place o f her parents. W hen she arrived there she went to work in a factory, still retaining her boy’s dress, and remained in it until she had nearly arrived at manhood, when she married a M iss Eliza Cummings, with whom she set sail for Quebec two days after their marriage. A few d a y s after her marriage she imparted the secret o f her sex to her wife; but notwith­ standing this the two females have lived to gether ever since as man and wife. Fifteen years have passed since their union, during ■which it appears they experienced a great v a ­ riety of fortune, but kept the secret o f the husband’s sex so well that it never before transpired, and remains even unknown to the wife’s father who has resided for some years with them. As the first account which this woman gave of h erself appears to be false, this one may be also untrue, but it stands corrobo­ rated to a certain extent, by the wife having called to see her on Saturday, and by the v e x ­ ation and rage she evinced on hearing that her husband’s sex was discovered; and also by a marriage certificate having been found on the prisoner’s person, certifying that the marriage was solemnized at the time and place which she stated in her examination. The m agis­ trate considered this matter altogether so ex­ traordinary, that he has detaine can ba m ote fully inquired into.- n u l o f Com m e rce. ___________ Mass. and made grave application lo that bo­ dy to be again established as one of ita preach­ ers in good and regular standing. The Me­ thodist Conference, however, bad good Benso e n o u g h , and sufficient respect for the character of its own Church, to refuse the request.

Miller and others, and the subject o f the old water works, and the licensing o f cartmen. Conformably to the report and recommen­ dation of the chief engineer, it was Resolved, That the members now compo­ sing the supply company, have leave to with­ draw from the same, and to attach themselves to some ofth e engine, or other fire companies. A law was passed, directing the flagging oi the side walks o f part o f Front street from Fer­ ry to Jefferson street. Tho committee on highways woro authoriz­ ed to have a street lately opened between Mai­ den Lane and Jay street, laid out on actual survey, in case a competent deed for the land shall be obtained and delivered to the said committee. The committee o f accounts, to whom was referred the account o f Nicholas Sw its, city surveyor, reported in favor of allowing the ac­ count at. $ 7 for laying out side walks, and a- gainst the allowance o f $ 2 7 for laying down and examining the ranges o f new buildings, the same being recoverable from the individuals at whose instances the services have been per- formed:—which report being accepted, the treasurer was directed to pay to said Nicholas Sw its the said sum of $7, and leave was giv­ en to Mr. S w its to withdraw the other account. Resolved, That the clerk cause the 3d and 4th sections of the law .for establishing the office o f city surveyor, to be published three weeks in both the city papers. W illiam A. Robson, James L. Van Ingen, nnd John Smith, were appointed firemen in Engine Co. No. 2, and Nicholas Rosa trans­ ferred from No. 3 to No. 2. Resolved that it be referred to the market committee to consider and report whether the market laws require any amendment, and if so, that the attorney of the board prepare such amendments as the said committee may sug trest. t A W relative to side-walks in that part of Front street, lying between For- ry and Jefferson streets, Passed August JO, 1830. 1 lie Mayor, Recorder and Aldermen of the city o f Schenectady, in Common Council con­ vened, do ordain as follows: 1.

Great Robbery .—Yesterday morning a most daring robbery was committed at the Eagle Tavern, by a man by the name o f Gibson Clark. It appears that he roomed with Mr. Harris,— the President o f the Canton Bank of Ohio, to Whom was intrusted,in hearing of the prisoner, d i f f e r e n t s u m s of m o n e y , by g e n t l e m e n o f this city, in all about $ 1 3 , 0 0 0 . M r . Harris, after breakfast, bad occasion to step out on business for a short time, and on his return found his valise cut open, the money gone. Immediate pursuit was made in different directions by sheriff Brace and the police, aided by a num­ ber of citizens: and as suspicions immediately rested on Clark, who had left the house, w ith­ out paying his bill, or taking his trunk, des­ cription was given of him so accurately as to lead to his arrest about noon at the Hydrau­ lics, where he was endeavoring to buy a horse. H e with an accomplice, were then committed to jail for examination. W e are gratified to learn that the whole of the money, with the exception of about thirty dollars, which bad been concealed in the woods near Elk-street, lias been recovered. Both prisoners were this morning examined before H. Slade, Esq. and fully committed for trial. Clark we learn, is pretty generally known through the country, and is believed to have committed many robberies. H e gener­ ally styles himself, on the hotel registers, a “ Virginia Planter.” -Bi/j(faio Journal, Aug. 15 Advertising .—The New-York men o f busi­ ness are an advertising race of mortals, they crowd the columns o f their journals to a degree almost incredible to the sober sided resident o f otheir cities, and an inventory of their stock may he said to be in the hands of every one who takes the trouble to read a paper. It is not there necessary to wander about a large metropolis to ascertain who has the article for sale he is desirous to purchase. That cont be discovered while sitting at the breakfast table, and the newspaper, in addition to its other valuable qualities, is thus metamorphosed in­ to that desideratum in political economy, a labor saving machine. The seller and the pur­ chaser are both materially benefitted. The immense waste o f time is prevented, and busi­ ness goes on with the force and precision of a steam engine. In addition, however, to home influence, newspapers have a distant op­ eration of no lees importance. They panetratc every where, and carry their information into every section of the Union. They act as tra- ,veiling agents to the mercantile community, and if they do not collect debts, they at least largely bring custom to the shop. These ad­ vantages are thoroughly understood by the N e w Yorkers. They do not live in the news­ papers for nothing, and their conduct in this ^respect is doubtless one among the many con­ tributing causes to their prosperity, which will eventuate in making that city the greatest commercial mart in the world. The Boeton Daily Advertiser states that there is a lady residing in Essex street, in that city, who on Monday last completed the hundredth year o f her age, and celeberated the 101 st an- anniversary. Many o f her friends called on her and were happy to find her in the enjoyment of excellent health.
