It will be seen that this call is signed by some of the most respectable, honest, talented, and solvent merchants of New York. This meeting will call r~?i- -i? ...i?1~ .1.v.,.., v. .i. and prebably, for the first time since the revolution, it will fill Wall street with aa assemblage of honest men, who pay ome hundred cents in the dollar.

Several good speukers will be present, and the whole will b? reported in the Herald 111 the ablest manner, on Wednesday next. Progrct* of the Revolution In the Newspaper Press?^The Reporting Department. Ever since we commenced the revolution and improvements in the newspaper press with regard to reports and reportirg of every kind of valuable information, the Wall street press have endeavored to produce an impression that we have misrepresented the occurrences that we reported. That this has been invariably the case, where they have faiiod in theii miserable efl'orts at reporting, whilst the lleralj has succeeded, is too notorious to need more particular citation. And when he Wall street press have been too stupid, too poor, or too lazy to s-nd any one to an important meeting of which the Herald has given full and accurate reports, they have always endeavoted to get some prominent individual to come forward and attempt to j .L. .u ... ....... ?r?... T uruy iur uuiii ?.?? tttwuiai) ui uui acjiuiio. r ur t'Vir firm a ti cm of this we need go no farther back than the celebrated cases of Bobert J affray and Col Starkweather; but the re;ult in all these casse has invariably been that those who have attempted to impugn our accuracy has been compelled to swallow his own statementsThe " Courier" hai at last given up the attempt to equal uj in reporting;, or in gainsaying our reports, in utter despair; hat the " Daily Express," seeing th>- effect pr >dnerd by our unrivalled system, has for some time past endeavored totn ad, at a very respectable distance, in our footsteps But the eflort they have thus made, has succeeded only in exposing the lamentable inefficiency of that print in all these matters This has been the case with l)r. Spark's splendid lectured, and with all the lectures worth reporting, with the great r-Trrious meetings, with sermons, with Mr. Webster's and other great political speeches, with Congressioual reports, and with meetings aud reports of tvery kiud. They have always been beaten shamefully, and on the recent occasion of the Wall street bankrupt meeting, their defeat was so complete that they could not conceal their chagrin, but let it out in the following article in ye t rday's " Express":?

Thus, in the report of the Bankrupt mei ting in the Exchange are the following ptsng.s: Mr. Parse t r Hit e.?

The criea of Jupiter's goldan shower of light ravished Danae is an interjiolation that correts itself, for every body knows there are never such classical "cries" Irons the mixed assembly of a public meeting.) We hue called attention to this caricature as a good representation of the whole class of matter that appears in the Herald. The object is to make an tnfsrsaiing paper without tho least regard to accuracy or truth. In a pretended report like this ol a public meeting where Mr. Butler's and Mr Edwards' speeches are quite accurately reported, ithe speech of a Whig, Mr. Hall, is singled out to make him, and those w ho heard him, appear as seconding charges of bribery, and of making attacks upon Mr. Clay, which, if credited, woulJ do away with all the crorwl 1: : -v.. 1 *- ? -- n u>i|Qv ua nrckuiuuu iu UJ>O IU vVdihinjjton. It ii, indeed, lamentable that the public taats thui loveB falsehood and caricature to which the Herald, we prelum?, bat respond*. Now, in this curious article, there are three strong points to be considered. In the first place, the article does not attempt to impugn the accuracy of our report ot the speech ; secondly, it only denies that the remarks we said were made by some of the spectators,ever were uttered by any one there. Aad thirdly that for the first time in six years, a Wall street print ie found to come out and endorse in the fullest manner, the accuracy of the reports of the Herald. Yes, the very article which attacks the account we gave of the effect on the meeting commences with aloud laudation of the accuracy with which we give speeches, lectures and every thing else. Now, let us see what they deny. They deny five things. 1. That any one said any thing about Henry Clay there. 2 That there were faint hisses at one time. 3?That there was any great cheering. I?That any one said any thing about $100,000. 5?That any cue made a remark about Jupiter and Danae. These are the important grounds usad by the " Express" on which to base an intended sweeping article against our reports and news in general. Although the matters we are here to reply to are ridiculous enough, still it is worth while to notice them in some measure. In the first place then, we aa.> tl.uf all I V, a k, - . ; I, J . I. I were made in that room by one or more of the spectators. There was very great?yes, terific? echoing, cheering, roariog, through that rotunda. Ilenry Clay was thus alluded to. Some one did speak of $190,(MM), and some other person slightly hissed. And lastly, some one alluded to Danae's golden shower. We are positive on this point and defy contradiction. Hut the Express says that at such meetings " every body knows there are never such classical" allusions Why, this remark is a gross insult as applied to a meeting of New York merchants. But the Express seeins to think that nothing was said besides what its reporter heard at the table at one end of the room. Why, we send two, three, four, or more reporters, to one meeting, if necessary ; and while some are taking down the remarks of the speakers, others are mingling with the crowd to see and hear the effects produced by the speakers, and the remarks they elicit from the spectators. And this we consider the true spirit of reporting, and no report can be a pertect picture without it. But now let us see who makes these ridiculous charges No other than Mr. Brooks, one of the editors of the "Express," who endeavored to report Prescolt Hall's speech, and made a miserable failure of it; and why 1 because he is utterly inoornpeient lor the task of reporting any thing correctly. His report of Prescott Hall's speech is a wretched abortion, and scarcely contains one tenth part ol the elegant remarks of that gentleman. Not a single sentence is correctly reported. And yet, while praising our account of Mr. Butler's and Mr. Edward's epetches for their accuracy, he abuses our remarks about the crowd, llow preposterous in this. The same gentleman reported Hall's speech that repotted Ivlwards's remarks. And one is equally as accurate as the other. And bdh are as faithful as they could be given. Hat the close ot the article is more ridiculous. It charges us with singling out Mr. Hall, for the special object of making him appear as attacking Mr Clay. We did no such thing. We only gave what he said. Although, there really does appear a great resemblance between the tone of his remarks and the tone of the article in the " Courier," and the resemblance is so striking, as to leave not much doubt of the identity in the minds of many. But still we did not say so. And it was the farthest from our ihoughts to single out Mr. Hall, for the j purpose named- We think too highly of him. He is a man of splendid natural talents, fine education, a good speaker, talks sensibly and distinct, and what is better, gops right to the point, seldom minces the matter, and generally speaks out what he thinks He did so on this occasion fearlessly and regardless of the consequence of displaying this, that, or the other, or individual, or cliqxuAnd we reported hiin as he spoke; and this in reality is the sore spot and sole around of attack by the " Express." That journal, like all the Wail street papers, has always been under the control of a miserable clique that were afraid to see the truth published. They would borrow money from a certain set of men, who thereafter always control their columns. And the great object kept in view by all of them has been, not how they could best publish facts, but how they could effectually tuppittt the tnith. They always are alruid of offending certain individuals, and hence their reports are always ' emasculated, and good for nothing. And these are the journals that dare thus to slander the " Herald." This paper, on the contrary, seeks only to pablish the truth?the whole cases?regardless of consequenecj-and lipnce the difT-rence?and hence the constant abuse heaped upon it. "The Captain of the Deck'' versus The Lancet. The argument of S. Sherwood, Esq , on the part of Dr- Houetos, was heard yesterday before the Vice Chancellor. Mr Sherwood showed, in a I vry forcible manner, that no contract, expressed or implied, of the character alleged by the complain mn, rxisira [t'lwtrn me parties?t&at the detendant rurtr hound himself to refrain from publishing analytical reviews of the lectures?that the principle contended for hy the complainant, to wit, that a contract existed between the students, or other privileged auditors, and a public lecturer, by which the latter w ere bound never to publish, nor dispose of in any way of their notes of such lectures, had no existence, nnd that a public lecture room was not so to be regarded in the light of n Freemason's Lodge. Mr. S. al-o contended that to interdict the publication of scientific reports of public oral lectures, was at variance with all the free institutions of this country. Hut as we will publish hereafter a full report of the arguments and decision in this most important l case, we merely mahe the present notice, for the I purpose of s'aung that the proceedings have so far advanced, and thai the decision of the court is to be gi?en on Tuesday next. The extraotdinary conduct of the "Captain of the Deck" and the faculty,'in abolishing the cliniqut, in order, as the "Captain" has said, to prevent the pries from "obtaining his materials," (?) and so cheating the numerous aud highly respectable class ot studen's from all the advantages of clinical instruction, under the contra) of this institution?nnd also in excluding the editor of the Lanref from nttendance on the lectures in the college, thereb) 1 trampling on their laws and order, has, as nuglu have be ii expected, exc ited the greatest astonishment aud indignation throughout the countryAs for the /urnre/, it i? meeting with unprecedented riiccesp. Orders are pouring in Irmn all parts ot lie Union, and with h remittance* come the ino-t corlul aspirations for the prosperity of this inde pendent medical journal, and the moat unequivocal exprewion* of disapprobation oi the foolish and ituj ist conduct of the Fa< *aty, and the *'Captain" - whom they yield rich prompt and dutiful ohdirnce. I Kepkal or thc BASik?orr Law?Moke ?Two more public meeting* are projected on this exciting subject: one by the anti-repealers up town ; and another on Tuesday by the repealers down town. < >n this subject we have Ween requested to publish the following article:? Mr. Bekhxtt :? I heard th<* creditors were to have bud a meeting gaiust the Bankrupt Law, which I think ouuht by II means to he done without delay, or the Bankrupts will think we dure nwt stand up for our rights, but nut tamely to snblit to have our pronery legislated away under such an unconstitutional law as the present Bankrupt Law. Why, sir, Congress can no more pa* such a law than they could one to divorce my wife who married me for lile, unless I commit some act.togive her just cause For instance ?Mrs. Van Zandt 1 suppose to have such cause, but what right can a debtor have to be exonerated from my claim until he pays it in full 1 I have one fellow wno owes me two thousand dollars who has perjured himself each fall and spring since 1836, always swearing he has no property, when he and hia wife dress better than either myself or wife can, and hi* children go to better schools than I could aHord to send mine toe, and dress more like gentlemen's children than mine do : yet bring this gentleman up under a creditor's bill, he swears he has been doing a brokering business only; that he has no money, that the house he lives in is rented by his wile's mother, and she owns the furniture, whieh is worth at least one thousand dollars?as 1 seized it once, and it was so valued, but his mother-in-law claimed it. What could I do wiih such a nest of cheats 1? yet 1 and other creditors are told we must let such fellows run. I say let us have the meeting before the late meeting have destroyed our claims on Congress. Those eloquent counsel that addressed their meeting will speak for our side also if we come to iheir price, but we will not pay them with our creditor's money Will you arouse the call lor the meeting. Ill drum up u hundred to attend within my own circle of trends,and we shall show them they cannot have all the ir own way. If that law be not repealed I'll spend one thousand dollars to test its constitutionality. |I can't stand the test. Jvstisk. Theatrical asd Musical.?It willbefeen by our correspondence froin Havana, that Mrs. Sutton has formed a very advantageous engagement at the Italian Opera of that island. She is a highly accsmnlished arlixlr and will, no doubt, make bolh monev and a sensation in Cuba. During hei residence in this city, Mrs Sutton was persecuted by a musical clique, who may be called "Vatsoni clique," consisting of a set of musical brokers who live on others- This amiable 6et of persons have attempted the same mode of attack with every eminent vocalist who appeared in New York Mr< Braham, one of the greatest singers of the age, and a man of the highest reputation, has been attacked by this clique on precisely the same grounds 'hat Mrs. Sutton?the Woods?and several others were. When a distinguished vocalist comes to New York, the fcUsoni clique, make up to him, attempt to hang themselves upon his fortunes?to speculate upon his fame and talents?as critics or accompaniments?and if resistance should be made, and their services declined, then the whole 9"t of musical brokers fall upon the unfortunate artist, in the most furious style, through the "New World," their organ, par excellence. Tins intrigue is getting to a head again?so that we shall have to prick the bubble in a few days. Look out for squalls. Naval Intelligence ?

As she is insured for $>"200,000, the excitement was the greatest amvngM the undei writ-rs, and a pilot boa' and two steamers were instantly dec-patchqd to her rescue. It proved, however, that the Morrison did not go ashore, but instead thereof the Commerce touched on Old Orchard, but soon got off, and will probably enter port to-day in company with the Morrison, which vessel was last seen on Friday noon, twenty ive miles ;E.

I do not recoiled so much excitement here as that occasioned by the arrival of the Norma, with the long expected artists, Mrs. Sutton, Antognini and Statuti. Madame Borgheee, too, being in the same vessel with Voizel and Iter father, speculation was at the utmost to kuow what all this meant ? Upon the aruval of the vef*cl it soon became known that these artists were on board, and the ship was surrounded by boats filled with persons, myself among the number, anxious to get a glance at Mrs. Suttou, whose reputation having long preceded her, made every one wish to see one who had drawn on herself the admiration and opposition of so many small artists and stnaiier critics- Antognini was also a great point of attraction, and so was Siatuti The mystery, however, of the Borghese's being there soon developed itself. It appeared that she tad contrived by some means or other to possess herself of the engagement sent out for Mrs Sutton Mr. Marti'd ageut in New York having written Borghesie's name over that of the former, through the representation that Mrs Sutton would not return to New York.

How it will be settled 1 cannot tell, all who know how strict the laws ol the Havana are, say she must have been mad to return. Marti is much pleased with the arrival of Mrs. Sutton, whose name is in the mouth of every one, and so anxious are the public for her dtbul, that there will be barely time to make new dresses for her,which Marti lias ordered- He brings out one at a time?Mrs. Sutton first, then Antoguini, theu Statuti.

WAHIllflOTOlt, Jtu?. 14,1812 The adoption of Governor Gilmer'u amend n ent to the Treasury Note Dill, removed all doubts of its passage, but the majority?-II?exceeded the expec* tationso) the most sanguine. The opposition came from the Whigs who have ulways resisted the isme of treasury not?s on principle, and such of the democrats as always vote against every thing but an appeal from the decision of the Speaker, and a mo tian to a<tjourn. There can be no doubt of ita speedy passage through the Senate. The friends of the Bankrupt Law seem to have dismissed their fears of its repeal. Tfiere is a decided majority against the law in the Houae, and the repeal will probably go through that body, but it is supposed that it may be stopped in the Senate ?but if the unfortuaate are disappointed there, they have the President to fall back upon, and he will be a tower of strength in this emergencyWith respect to the Exchequer Board very little has been said for several days past. Great doubts are entertained af any final action of Congress on the subject of the currency. Tha western whiga express their desire to dispose of the ques tion, but nothing will satisfy their constituents, unless it shall be an institution from which they can borrow money This is what they mean by furnishing a sound currency. The whig* from the eastern, northern and middle States, having learned the wishes and expectations of their constituents, are anxious to adopt the President's plan, with some modifications. One amendraen' however, which has been suggested, cannot prevail. The proposition is to take from the President all control over the institution, and give the appointment of the officers to Congress. The constitution prohibits this, in so many words. Congress has nothing, and can have nothing to do with the appointment of any officers under the government. This power is expressly confided to the Execative, except in case of some inferior officers, the appointment of which may be devolved upon the Supreme Court or the heads of departments. But some modifications might b? made, which, while they might not im pair the efficiency or usefulness of the institution, would render tha bill more acceptable in certain quarters. Whether it can be worked into such a shape as to receive the support of a majority in both Houses, remains to be seen. ..The Select Committee are not prepared to report, ..j ;? .-:II j.i... ilhu ii us miiuviolvou iuai utry niu urmjr iui buiuc time to come. The bank wings allege against the fiscal plan of the administration, as a presumption of evil, that it is analagous to the scheme of a government bank recommended by Gen. Jackson. Was there ever anything mere fallacious?was an objection more factious ever urged against a measure of any sort ? The prepoaition must stand or fall by its own merits The people will not be satisfied with arguments derived from the opinion of n single man, whether favorable er otherwise to the plan. But if the favorable opinion of Gen. Jackson is to repel support from the Exchequer, what shall be said respecting th? distribution bill 1 The project of dividing the avails of the public lands among the States was first suggested by Gen. Jackson. In his first message to Congress the idea was thrown out, and the next year it was repeated and elaborately argued. Mr. Clay was (hen chairman of the committee on manu factures, and ihe subject of the public lands was referred to that committee by the administration majority of the Senate, for the purpose of embarrassing r*r. ai mat lime was equal 10 any emergency, and, concurring in the views ol Gen. Jack" son, he reported his iamous distribution bill, and brought the entire strengh ot the opposition in both hou-es to its support. Gen. Jackson soon changed his ground, and most of his partisans, who always suflered bim to do the thinkingjand acting, too, for the whole party, did the saine thing. But Mr. Clay persevered, and eventually forced the bill through Congress, and it.would have became a law if Gen. Jackson had not refused to return it to the Senate The Distribution measure is not the only one of Mr- Clay's hobbies that had its origin with Gen Jackson. The one term principle, which Mr. Clay is ready to rtpudiait the Constitution in order to establish, was a favorite notion of Gen- Jackson's. It was the prominent and habitual topic in all his earlier messages, and he pressed upon Congress again and again the importance of so amending the Constitutional to accomplish the objectAnother hobby which Mr. Clay intends to mount at the first opportunity, is excluding members of Conorea-i from >11 i.ftiTola nl*.. tioH its origin with Gen- Jackson, and was suggested by the allegation ot a Corrupt understanding between Messrs. Adams and Clay, by which the latter stepped from the chair of the llou -e of Representatives to the head of the State Depa.tment?and we may euquire tu }xi*?ant, whether Mr. Clay's movement on the Constitution is to be taken as an admission that Gen- Juck?on was right, and that his own eipenence .aught him the necessty of protecting the easy virtue of members of Congress from Executive seduction. This brief statement of (acts is sufficient to expose the futility of objecting to the Exch-quer because Gen.
