IGNACIO C09IOXFOB.T. The Heraldo, published in the city of Mexico, furnishes interesting facts concerning the life. character and habits of this remarkable man, for iwo years past the actual President of the neighboring Republic, and at tbe present time re-elect ed to the same office, under the new Constitui Ignacio Comonfort was born atthe city of Pueblo, the 12th of March, 1812, and is, therefore, little over forty-five years of age. His family wi among the most respectable of his native State' His father, Mariano Comonfort, held a Colonel's commission in thc regular army ; his mother, Maria Guadalupe de los Rios, belonging to the large aod influential family of that name. Young Comonfort was early designed for the quiet ptofession of letters. With this object in Tiew, he was placed, at the ago of thirteen, in th college of his native city, then under the charge of the Jesuits, where he soon discovered the superior talents which have distinguished his whole career. His collegiate course, however, was destined soon to be cut short by the death of his father, upon which event he retired, with his mother to a country estate iu the district of Izucar de Matamoras. Here he remained till 1832, the year of Santa Ana's pronunciamento, when we find him, at the early age of twenty, at the head of a company of cavalry, participating in the princi* pal engagements of that revolutionary campaigt It would be long and tedious here to follow the Mexican soldier and statesman step by step through all the changes of the republic forthe period of a quarter of a century. Suffice it, that Comonfort is found connected and identified with almost every movement of a liberal character, and that iu all cases he seems to have acted with prudence aud firmness ; in the revolution of Ayutla, so called^ playing so important a part that the Government ad interim was finally entrusted with almost dictatorial powerB, to his bands, with what result is well known. The reader will be more interested in the following account of his personal character and habits of life. In all the legislative assemblies in whieh Comonfort has figured, he haa been distinguished for the gentleness and amiability of his personal character ; his friends have always commanded his best services for the asking. But this complacency in matters of personal friendship, which might be at times, considered extreme, forms a striking contrast with the independence and firmness with which he maintained his opinions. When, after the examination of a matter, he had made up his mind, neither personal persuasion nor influence of any kind could induce him to vote against his own convictions, and, in matters of weight and importance, it was often seen with surprise that be voted against the opinions of his most intimate friends. Comonfort has the faculty of command in a remarkable degree. Though without pretension ot any kind, and extremely simple in his manner, he makes himself respected by all who surround him. and hia is always the ruling spirit of the party. This character is so natural to him, that in moments of the greatest freedom and relaxation, none will forget that the friend present is th Chief Magistrate of the Republic. In spirit he is bold and fearless, his calmnes and self-possession in the face of danger are most remarkable. On a visit to his family he takes no escort with him, and at night he traverses the streets alone. So also he goes to the theatre and returns thence, like any private citizen, unaccompanied even by an adjutant. Many times, even. be has visited his villa atTacubaya, in like manner; alone and unattended. — -^ «•»■»- The Mormons leaving Carson Valley.—By a dispatch in the State Journal, dated Placerville, Sept. 17tb, we learu that the Mormons were all Waking preparations to leave for Great Salt Lake.

I do not know the later relations of Mr. Marcy and Mr. Van Bufen. I was not an admirer of Mr. Van Buren's politics, and my dislike ofhis politics, influenced, undoubtedly, my judgment of his character. Governor Marcy placed the character of his friend in a new light, attributing to him the virtues of fidelity, and the power of achieving his pin-poses by the masterly influence of his will. He described a scene in a parlor in Albany, where five persons (I think it was five) were present, to determine the question who should be Governor of New York, Mr. Van Buren stood with oae arm on the mantelpiece, quiet, gentle in manner, hut immovable aa a rock. The post was fairly due to Daniel G. Tompkins, and Mr. Tompkins' it must be, against all objections, and Mr. Tompkins' it was, by Mr. Van Buren's determination. the removal of obstructions in the Hudson River, at the Overslaugh. Governor Marcy wasiu favor of these provisions, but the bill, while pending in Congress, was loaded with bo many appropriations which were against his judgment, that he was obliged in conscience to vote against it. The vote cost him a good deal ol reproach, and the Overslaugh received the title ot " Marcy's Farm." He was on board a Bteamboat a few years later, while Governor of the State, and the vessel went aground at this troublesome spot. Leaning quietly over the railing, and looking iuto the water, he was accosted by a stranger, who was occupied in the same way, with the inquiry, '-Isn't this what they call Marcy's Farm?'! "I believe it is;"' said tbe Governor. The f tranger, who was a man of excitable temper, referred to the vole which had given it the GAMBEINUS BREWERY. rpHE best ALE and BEER manufactured, animal- _L ways on hand: Delivered to city customers without extra charge.

San Francisco, Sept, 15. 1857. 26 ml He spoke of the difficulties of tke Executive of j name, and proceeded to abuse Mr, Marcy in round New York, especially as connected with the pardoning power, and illustrated the differences in character of Governor Tompkins and Governor Clinton, hy the manner in which they met them. A woman, whose son was in prison, sought the prosence of Governor Tompkins, to otter her suit for his pardon, it was summer; She entered the garden by a gate, and met hiiu, alone and at leisure on the piaaza. She inquiied Tor the Governor. I am he," he replied. Bursting into tears, she made known her errand. Neither repelling nor encouraging her, he inquired ahout the character and hiibits of her sou, and ended by persuading her that he wag best off where Up was. He had denied her suit, but the distressed mother went away feeling that Governor Tompkins was lhe best man in the world. During thc administration of Governor Clinton-** a man addicted to intemperance, but otherwise respectable, and having a respectable family, committed, in a fit of drunkenness, a crime, for which he was sent to prison- A son,.furnished with all the necessary papers, making a ease so clear that there could be no doubt about it, proceeded to Albany for his pardon. He called at the Governor's, announcing his name, and requesting an interview. It so happ&ned that the name was identical with that ofa gentleman whose recent appointment to office had occasioned the Governor eome trouble. Supposing this to be the person, be advanced at once to the hall, somewhat excited, to meet him* and then discovering his mistake, as quickly retreated, sending word that the Govern, or was engaged. The young man was instantly prejudiced by the Governor's manner, and when he had been kept in the city three or fcur days for an interview, and had secured the pardon, he went away carrying with him a decided dislike £br Mr. Clinton. Governor Marcy fully appreciated the character and services of Governor Clinton. 1'hey had been alienated, but Governor Clinton had made advances which had exhibited his confidence in Mr. Marcy, and the latter had met (hem in a similar spirit. The sudden and solemn death of that great man, at the very height of his fame, made a profound impression on Governor Marcy. "I went to the chamber," he said, " where be was lying, and as my eye fell upon his prostrate form. I could not but exclaim lo myself, is Ibis, the end of human greatness?" Tbe sudden and solemn death of Governor Marcy himself, at the very rao- tnsnt when he stood peerless among American statesmen, and with a fame as wide as the world, brought this incident to my recollection with irresistible force. " Is this the end of human great" terms, for bavin;; betrayed the Interests of his I constituents. Enjoying the sport, thc Governor perhlitted the stranger to proceed, and perhaps aided him a little in firing np his wrath'.- until at length the man-exclaimed, "I wish I had him here ; I should be glad to pitch him inlo the river at this very spot." "That," replied the Governor, " might be sport for you, but I'm thinking it would he death to hie ; I am Governor Marcy." Thc discomfiture of the amazed stranger was complete. He cooled down in an instant, apologized, and went hie way. I met Governor Marcy in the Post Office, at Southbridge, during the pendency of the Presidential election of 1844, when the mail arrived, bringing one of the unlortunate letters of Mr. Clay. "Mr. Clay," said he, earnestly, (and he made the remark, not in the tone of an opponent exulting in an advantage, bnt in the generous spirit of an admirer and friend,) " Mr. Clay is very unwise. He should write no letters. He can write nothing which will not be perverted to his injury. When I am a candidate I mako it a point to write no letters." These letters were undoubtedly, tbe cause of Mr. Clay's defeat. The newspapers at this time were very generally discussing, pro and con, the alleged habits of Mr. Clay as to the matter of gambling, and these discussions led to some remarks by Governor Marcy on the habits, in tbat particular, of many public men. The conversation was confidential, and lhe confidence of that moment is not to be broken now. I shall make no reference to dates or names. The Governor was preseut at a dinner party, and after dinner cards were introduced. Tlie Governor was invited to a game of whist, to which he had no objections, biit when money was named, though " it was only a small sum, tokeep the game,'' be replied, "No, gentlemen, not six cants to save the city from sinking." Once only, when a youug man, he had played for a-quarter of a dollar j he was startled by the error, and had' never repeated it. BLAOltSMITH: CAEEIAGE SHOP, fcy h.

IT seem that the Electko-Chemical Baths, have decided the vexed question in regard to the notorious National Hotel disease; one victim ha.ving.been fortunate enough to try the baths, as a last resort, wherein the "test-plate showed a heavy deposit of arsenic."

P- has now completed bis arrangementr for the forwarding of advertisements to all the principal largest circulating jouroals and- newspapers published ic the Atlantic Statea.- I once called up for criticism the sentiment uttered by Governor Marcy when be Was in the Senate—" To the victors belong tbe spoils." We were alone in tbe sitting room of the old family mansion, a generotls fire blazing on the hearth.* He arobe without saying a word, crossed the room, and takiug bis cane, came back to hia seat, and layiug the cane across his Jtneec. " I have just had a present," eaid be. " Tbis caue is from the timbt-r of the British ship taken by Perry on Lake Erie ; see tbe inscriptions," On one of them was the presentation—on another the history of the material—on the third, "To the victors belong tbe spoils.'' With this for his text, he proceeded to illustrate and to vindicate his real meaning. It was not prescriptive. It was in harmony, I may add, with bis own habits of dispensing political patronage, IJe was true to his party always, but always just to Opponents. During nis eight years oT Cabinet service, it is understood t-Tiftt he dismissed nn employee of the Government ibr political opinions. I rallied bim once in some way about tbe affair oi his "pantaloons," aud received irom him explanation of that unlucky incident. It was in the autumn of 1S3S, I think, and just before bis failure of a re-clectiou. He had recently been at Newburgh, where a company of gentlemen of both political parties, had spent an evening wilh him in a social way. Among them was a Whig lawyer, who had just attended a political conven tion in Western New York. "We were riding along in high spirits—a stage load ot us," said tbe lawyer, " when the driver drew up his horses and stopped." " This, gentemen." sa:d he, reaching down to ns inside, " is the identical spot where Governor Marcy tore his pantaloons.*' " Where" upon," added the lawyer, " we alighted, the whole of us, and gave three cheers for Governor Marcy's pantaloons." ■'The laugh was on me," said the Governor, " but I had a retort, which I proceeded to give. This same gentleman had just been engaged in securing a pardon for a criminal in prison, and the case was one which commended itself to ray judgment. "Give me the papers," said I, and I proceeded to endorse upon them a pardon. While I was in the act, my friend exclaimed, " Hold, hold, Goternftr, I have made a mistake. Those are the wrong papera. That's a Whig speech tbat I am just going to deliver!" "No matter, no'matter," replied the Governor^ i' I am only pardoning the ofience betore it is committed!" When Governor Marcy was in the Senate, a bill Exploration or tlie Colorado RITcr. The main portion ofthe party wbich goes out under the commaud of Lieut. Ives for tlie exploration ofthe Rio Colorado will slart in the Star of the West to-morrow, en route for California. It is the intention of Lieut. Ives to proceed immediately to the Gulf of California from San Francisco in a sailing vessel, taking with bim the materials of a small steamer. On reaching the month of the Colorado, tbis steamer will be put together*- when the party will ibrthwith commence the ascent of the river. This expedition of Lieut. Ives, it is believed, will eventually prove to be one of the most important enterprises of the kind, of any now in progress ; whether considered simply with reier- ence to its anticipated scientific results, or more generally to the vast region which it is contemplated tbu3 to threw open to the march of civilization.* The Colorado Is toe largest river, save one, of any west of fhe Ilocky Mountains. The lower portions of the valley at points where it bas been crossed by exploring parties has been found to possess a soil of unsurpassed richness, and the region through which it flows, is believed to possess mineral resources of the most valuable kinds. Trappers tell extravagant stories of the sublim iiy of the scenery on the higher portions of th- valley, and of the gigantic gorges or caiions, through which the river passes. Thc new Territory of Arizona, which borders the lower portion, is being last filled with emigrants. From Salt. Lake, too, tbe Mormons are pushing towards this *alley, and are now within twenty-five miles'of its most western bend. It is thought possible tbat Lieut. Ives may find the river navigable for his small steamer as high up as the 37th parallel of latitude, which will bring bim to a point at no great distance from tbe Salt Lake region, and solve the problem of a short and direct water communication between ihat Territory aud thc Pacific Ocean. The surveys and explorations connected with this expedition will include the various parts of topography, geology, zoology, mineralogy, etc. Lieut. Ives is already familiar with a portion of the route. Laving traversed it in company with Lieut, Whipple, upon the Pacific Railroad exploration, near the 35th parallel of latitude. The expedition is dispatched under orders from tlte War Department, and will be especially gratifying to the citizens of California who havo long desired that the resources of the Unknown territory lying adjacent to their own should be developed.—•A*".

The house and estate of Johannesberg ii one Oi the most conspicuous objects in the Whble Rtflhe- gau. It occupies Cfnitc an eminence, sotflS 3i»-" tance from the Rhine, and the whole maoiioa,' standing iu the midst of vineyards, is seen for some distance up tbe river, Thfe liouse was built in 1716, and is more remarkable for the fine view obtained from the balcony and terrace than either its eize or adornments. The Prince, in fact, seldom occupies it. Its history is quite interesting* It belonged at first, to the monks, being attached to the Abbey and Convent of St. John'B, and many a fine stoup of wine did they secure from it. ai the beginning of the p-eBcnt centiiry the -ownership was vested in the Prince of Orange, but Napoleon gave it away for him to Marshal Keller- mann, without even condescending to consult hiffli or ask his consent., I At the close of the war it changed ha'n'dB onca I more, and in 1816 waB presented by the Emperor of A.Q8tffla to his favorite Prime Minister. Princa Metternich. The cellars are Very extensive, but it is difficult to obtain admittance to them—perhaps there are mysteries there wbich they think ought not to be disclosed. It is no more certain: that all is not g*old that glitters than it is tbat every beverage tasting and looking like wine it not wine really—the'pure juice of the grape'.- The ground around the chateau is too precvouH as a vineyard to be laid out in gardens ; hence there is no attempt at adornment. No trees afe allowed to grow, on account of (shading the vines, except on the north side, where no grapes are attempted to be raised. Thc best grapes grow close under the walls of the house, and, indeed, partly o^er the cellars. The peculiar species most prized and cultivated is the Riesling. The management of it at all seasons requires the mofet careful attention. Tbe grapes are left until they are thoroughly ripe—in fact, aa long as they will h*lng on tbo vine—which renders the vintage at Johannesberg usually a fOiUnight later than any other place irt theRhinegau. The vinedresser is not satisfied with the ripeness ; he waits until rottenness han almost ensued; and Whatever is lost in quantity, by this delay, id considered io be more than regained in the strength and body of the wine. So careful is the thering, that those which fall to the ground are picked up by a peculiar instrument contrived especially for that purpose. One of the facts iri ;ard to this celebrated estate which will most prise the reader is ita small extent. It embrac-' ea only about seventy acres. All the wine, even of this small space, i's not equal, bnt that of each of the small campaitmcnte into which it is divided is k'.'pt separate, and -rvfm in the best year* there is considerable-difference in the value of the different casks. It produce amounts, in good seasons, to about forty butts, valued at 80,000 florins- equal to $36,270. A cask containing U&O botfles has been valued a3 high as 2200 florins. The highest price ever paid was 18,000 florins per cask of 1350 bottles, which is a little more than $5 5tf ofour currency per bottle. The purchasers were George IV. and the King of Prussia, each a moiety. In bad yocTs tS'c juice' of the grapes is never put in thc cellars, but sold at once for what it wiil briug in the market; but the good wine is stowed away in casks until it is ripe, and then bottled aud stamped with the prince's signet and sold in the different cities of Europe ; of course, principally to the nobles. It is a question whether a single bottle of real Jo-' hannesberg has ever reached this country.

Cometh a messing Down.
Kot to tbe man of dollars,
Not to the man of deeds,
Not to the mau of cnuniug,
Not to the man of creeds •;
Not to the one whose passion
la for a world's renowu,
Not ia the form of fashion,
Cometh a blessing dowu.
Not unto the land-'s expansion,
Not to the miser's chest,
Not to princely mansion.
Not to the blazoned crest;
Not to the sordid worldling,
Not to the knavish clown,
Not to the haughty tyrant,
Cometh a blessing down.
Not to thc folly blinded,
Not to the steeped in shame,
Noi to the carnal minded,
Not to unholy fame ;
Not in neglect of duty,
Not in the monarch's crown,
Not at the smile of beauty,
Cometh a blessing down.
But to the one whose spirit
Yearns for the great aud good
Unto the one whose storehouse
Yieldeth the hungry food ;
Unto the one who labors,
Fearless of foe or Jrowu ;
Unto the kindly hearted,
Cometh a blessing down.
