At another time when \y hive more room, w shall give u few choice selections fro in these disclc sure?, by way of showing to the world, the morals c politics a mon 2 cert .tin cliqu-t ii-r . We have 11 room to d iy. The'latter portion of t lien'worth's brochure i filled with severe rem irks and allusions to Livvard Curtis, Alderman Bcn.-on, and others, but we thin w nltoui any force,or propriety, or good feeling. A the connection that \lr. Curtis seems to have in th matter, arises from his ctl'orts to save his friends,au to prevent an exposuri?a very amiable feeling however improper it may be to thn cause of soun* morals and honesty in politics. Alderman lVnso seem even to have acted a still more amiabl- pat ?and yet Glentworth is almost savage oil this kind hearted Alderman. This is not right nor just. Now the question arises, what will be the pr.icti cal effect of these awful disclosures? Just nothin; at all. The morals of politicians are at so low ai ebb, tint these astounding facts will produce no re stilt. Mr. Blatchford ought to be removed from tin place lie holds as Receiver of the Commercial Bank but such a tiling will not be dvtte. Glentwortl himself, w ill sink iuto oblivion and disgrace, unles h ' cornea lip, like a duck front a deep dive, in somi olli' r party.

New Year's Dav, Calls, awd Temperance.?Saturday, the first day of A. D. 1812, was one of the loveliest and brightest days that ever ushered a New Year into exigence. More hearts beat with delight on seeing the sua rise up from behind Long Island, than ever before in this great and happy city Such a day conies almost as seldom as New Year's day itself, and was not to be lost. We never saw the streets so crowded with pedestrians, or more thronged with vehicles, driving and dashing as ii driven by steam, in the whole course of our lives Every liou?e was thrown open for visitors?the ladies app ared never handsomer nor happier, and the richness of the display in ide was only equalled by the richness of the day outside. Indeed, there appeared to kt - u rivalry for brilliancy between the ladies and sun. We were sorry to see, in face of all this, so macn intoxication in our streets. It seemed to us as if no temperance societies existed. At broad noon more respectably dressed young men were seen stagger ing under the quantity of wine and liquor they hac taken, than on any cue day for five years. And we never witm ssad, in the same time, such an appear ance of temperance. Many families had no wine at all. and a larg- number had coffee and chocolate for the purjx-s" of leo ning the consumption ?>r l> qiiors S'iII there was no diminution in intoxica tion and it even extended into the Mayor's office. Ii consequence of the improper behaviour of many r his visiters, by which the carpets were complete!; ruined, he was compelled to close up and go horn at one o'clock, and d prived many of the pleasur of seeing hiin. Lord Morptih was among thr num bt r. These are lamentable facts. We were in hope that the temperance cause w ould, ere this, have ex tended its influence over thiscity, and given to ou amusements and celebration a ra i mality w hich ha bees for so long a period so much wanted. Sj.izi ! r: oj r11? Mexicw New.?Wc learn tha the cutter Fwing, Capt. Eraser, has been ordered i the North lliver to watch two of the handsomes and mott raking schooners lying there that eve flouted.

Nf ver has there beensuch an exemplification < (l the importance and value of party discipline, part r_ organizition, ami party authority, as we have wit nee-ed *ince the opening of Congress. An infiuit j. ol labor, of annoyance, of perplexity, is saved b )r the substitution of the dirtum of party for the exei eise ot judgment, sound sense, and discretion.tf When party discipline is perfect, there is no indiv dual responsibility,no hesitation, no desire to eva;' II questions of any sort. Every man in the rank marches up promptly and with precision. There i _ no complaint, no cavil, no dodging. The mandate u of party, promulgated through the medium of ; caucus, supersede the necessity of thinking or deli berating. Nothing is required but bullheaded fide (| lity. Everyman witoacknowledges fealty to hi party, puts his conscience and Ills patriotism in thi II hands of the leader, and yields a blind subservienc; to his dictation. At the extra session, the whig j were drilled and marshalled to the most per'e; e state of party efficiency. Never was thpre a mon solid phalanx,a more unbroken front. They voted , to a mm, for Mr. Clay's bank bill, a measure ac r knowledged, on all hands, to be utterly worthies for all practical purposes?an absurd, incongruou e scheme, without one redeeming quality in all it provisions. But party tyranny predominated ove ,1 every consideration of principle, of expediency, o () cl patriotism. Tlie bill was passed through bptl houses,and only arreated by the good sense, integrity s and independence ot the President. I After executing all the behests of party, the whij k members went home to their constituents. Fron |[ thein they received a let-son, which opened thei e eyes to the folly of many of their acts, and they re j turned here to the regular session, disorganized ant , broken up, as n party, without ah acknowledget j leader?without a settled plan of action?withou tl confidence in each other, and without n comtnoi t purpose or object. Hence the confusion and unarch) that lias prevailed up to the present time?henct ill- doubt aHd hesitation manifested on nil hands. Tiie revolt which line tjken place in the whii ,, ranks, in every section of the country, ha3 had iti , effect on Congress, Members have begun to set the necessity of thinking for themselves; and, i possible, avoiding the political destruction whicl must ensue, if the rash and headlong counsels o: ( Mr. Clay aru permitted to prevail. This necessitj s imposes a large amount of lubor and responsibilitj > ?and, as it is a new thing, it is not surprising tha' there should have been, for u time, no decided tone or direction to whig sentiment or opinion in Con gress, 011 the lisca! scheme of the administration At the extra session, there would have been nr . doubt, for a single day, what would be the course adopted. Ascertain the opinions or feeling of Mr. Clay, and it was not necessary to enquire further Bat the popular condemnation of whig policy and measures, lias nearly destroyed the power ?f Mr. Clay, and utterly precluded the idea of union or harmony, or concurrence in the whig ranks. There is neither zeal, nor concord, nor activity. The currency question is the great measure of the session.? ' Upon this, Mr. Clay is indisposed to effective ac' tion ; but it seems to be admitted that he can hardly control a majority, even of the whigs, in either ' house. Blind as he may be to the will of the people, they < annot shut their eyes to the state of the public mind, nnd they will not incur the hazard of defeat! ing the wise andjpatiiotic purposes of the adminis' t rat i on. I The views thrown out by Mr. Mangn.ti, in his vioI lent tirade yesterday, are not entertained by more tiisn six or eight members of the Senate, on the whig side. There may be a coalition between the i extremes of both parties, embracing a suiheient number to defeat any scheme of finance, but there - is a considerable poition of bo.li sides that will not ) be a party to any such factious combination. The people desire to see this question settled - They do not sympathise with the personal desirei s of those who wish to keep up perpetual agitation ? in tli" hope that it may ultimately ensue to their owi lit m Th# roi.au-y vrniu r?. po^r, pennan^ucy, I . s-ttled, regular system, and they will be held to i II fea.lul responsibility who shall, lor any selfish o f other ut worthy purpose, conspire to defeat a judi y ciou-and well considered financial scheme Baltimore, tC'oir-.epondcnce of the Herald.] '* .

Mk >n Mrson's BxsrrriT ?Thisg'inilenian'd benefit taki-s place to-night at the Park theatre, and Mile. Kl?>ler, on this consideration, performs, und takes a fiual adieu of her legion of admirers. We notice on the bills, the announcement merely of Mile. [ Elesler's appearance, without designating the actual reason, namely, on the occasion of Mr. Simpson's benefit. The only cause we can ascribe for this blunder is, that Mr. Simpson withholds his name, knowing that the name of the i/<m*ru?r will prove >)uite siiflicient to draw a crowded house, and at some future time he will appeal to the public on his own behalf, thereby killing two birds with one stone. It is an undoubted fact however, that Mile. Elasler consented to appear lor the benelitof the management, and not in cotnpli. attce wit* any solicitation, as the hills say, and justice and gallantry -houhl have prompted Mr. Simp, son to a far different course front that he has pursued. 141<r vuun .u^ oara will explain the mystery :?

A, run Hoc**, Jan. 2. Thus it appears, that while tMU*. Elrnler has act. rd on this occasion with that generosity which has rendered her proverbial ia this countty, there has been nn unmanly attempt, on the part ot the management, o withhold justice from her. The audience ought to call tor Mr. Simpson, and hear hisexplanation for such conduct. It is a notorious fact that great gmtUilf occurred at the theatre, owing to th- illness of th* ilan?ru?e at the commencement of her engagement. The company received no salary for the two nights the theatre Was closed, and uow that Mile. Elssler comes forward and performs gratuitously,to insure the management against lo.-s, it is but a poor subterfuge for it to announce lo-rap pearance as the result of "solicitations There has been n disagreement between Mile J Ussier and Moos.
