NEW YORK HERALD. New York, Thursday, February 17, 184'i. ProsrtM of (lie Ureal Kevolutloii of the Pre. icnt Agt-TUe Presidency and the Press, We are in the midst of a revolution?we are in a state of transition?we are all undergoing a radieul chang- in almost every element of human society; wimm?,!e. trade, fi mice. m lnufaJtur'-s, iiteratu:e, politics, religion, and the newspaper press ar< undergoing this wonderful and rapid .development of newand aat ?undmg elements. Th" bench, the pulpit, the bar, the legi lative hall, the ball room, the news paper press, yea, eveu t Jreat Br;: hiinselt, all unite in indicating this social, moral, and intellectual revolution. But perhaps one of the greatest evidences of this holy and gloiious movement trotn evil to good? from the influence cfintrigue to the power of intellect, can be sees in ihe singular war which lias been waged for years i ust by the Wall street newspaper press 82?iu?t the character of the penny or ca.-h press of all the large cities. In this branch of the revolution, (f the nineteenth century,we have taken the front rank, and accordingly we have, like every master-spirit of every age, Irotn Socrates downward, jo bear the brunt of the battle,Hnd to meet the calumnio of expiring passion.?, as best we may. Here is a curious sample iroin me teouing w an mrc-ci journal of yesterday :? [From the Courier and Enquirer] Vhi Last ErroaT or Catt- Tylch ?We learn from a source which admits of no question, that the Acting Preiidcut of the I'nited States, is about maturing an ailai.geuitnt, which he, w ith his usual toriright, considers |iorfeclly certain to secure his election to the Presidency in 1844. A gentleman now in Washington informs us that at the request of a person high in the confidence of Captain Tyler, a person connected with the Penny Press ot one of our large cities, was authorised to make overtures to his contemporaries in the three cities of boston, N w York and Pniladelphia, to unite in the support of John Tyler's administration, on condition that they should become the recipients of the President's patronage ! And he further asruri s us, that the individual alluded to, has actually visited Washing ten on this business, anil been most graciously received by the Executive. We have all the details of this movement before us, together with the names of the parties who have assented to the airangi ment ; and our readers will very soon , become apprised of a npnr'nirsA/j) between the editor of Jthe Herald in this city , and a w ell known individual, "which will open their eyes to the truth ol what is now in contemplation. The UriahI of Saturday last.contained the tint notice of a sale of Public Lands ever udvertisi d in this city; and this large advertisement of a Land Sale in JUinoit, is orderi d to be published lor the period of three months ! This worthy organ of Tyicrism, with its usual impudence, accompanied its first insertion with a leading article, calling the attention of European Cajiitali tit tothe sale; and in a if m ijfic at tone inloitnsthein that' 'in const quence of the delRy in Congress in providing for the deficiency in the Treasury by the impoti tiou of Taxes, the Government of the United States is almost without funds"?that it wants money, and muit have it. It tiieiilfore, throws into the marKti a large quantity of '<? valuable reainlate." We will not in the prefent crowded state of o-ir columns, pause to dwell upon the deep disgrace wliich Mr. Tyler thus brings upon the country. Every reader will feel that this proceeding presents a spectacl'" of humiliation such as has never In fore been witness ut where is the remedy 7 The cwfsc is u| on u?, anu there is bo escape for the next three years. The next annunciation in the Herald, will b?.[that the new otlica fitting up for that es a) lishmeut at the coiner of .Inn street, is to bo sustained by the patronage of President Tyler?that Job Trif ling to an enormous mount, is to be there executed fur the Government, and thai a distinguished friend, late an enemy, ii to be associated with him ! We shall not ..t present, go farther into thii notable scheme to tioy up the Penny Tress; but we predict it will prove a totsl failure. Already has the proposition been rejectel where ti e rejection tvas least anticipated; and this last res t of Tyhrism, is not only destined to be a signal failuie, lut those who pretend to be Mr. Tylrr'e friend*, and have .*>me little knowledge of the people, will tell him thid it was conceived in lolly and madness: and that even 'fthe patties sought to bethought ?p"had agreed to the proposed arrangement, it would not have seenred him an rdditional supporter among the People. As it if. nothing but disgrace will be reaped by the projector of so silly a movement. We conceive this curious article to be one of the moat striking proofs of the revolution which is going on in the, pan pant with that in politics, finance and literature. It is true there is a good deal of fancy and ill nature mixed up with e few facts, but there is still sufficient of the latter article to satisfy the most sceptical of the mighty change which is working in every element of society, and porticularly in the newspaper press, that living soul of a new and happy age, such as the world never yet has seen. We understand that the whole, or nearly the whole cash preFs, called the " penny press," in our large Atlantic cities, are either out or coming out in support of John Tyler and his accomplished admi meiration. 1 esteruay tne ivew roramin rnaac us first movement, in an able and powerful leader. There has always been, in regard to the currency and other public measures,-a strong approximation between the principles advocated by the cash press and the practice.of the present administration. There is no buying or selling?no bribery and corruption in this matter?it is a fair business transaction throughout, without the intervention of 52,785 round white reasons, each looking like silver or gold. The Wall street newspaper press, and pll the like journals in our large cities, that have been conducted for years on credit and deceit; jiave nearly accomplished their mission in the progress of the age, and are now rapidly returning to nobody and nothingness. They were the advocates and supporters of a system of bloated credit?of an inflated paper currency?that has debated public morals?made scoundrels of honest men?multiplied deception?covered society with a vast crust of corruption?and almost degraded this glorious country before the nations of the earth But a happy and a glorious change is coming over the land. Liberty and monthly have Broken out in the right places, and a newspaper press has been established, supported, cherished and upheld by the people, that will unite its vast and pnultiplied energies wi:B the Executive government, and sweep way, at once and forever, that influence, and that pornon of ;he press, which has filled the country with bankrupts and broken banks?folly and misery?aristocratic pretensions and demoralized con Willi regard to our poor self, we ask nothing of President Tyler, or of'any m in or party. Our establishment, with industry, yields us an in name sut fi-ient to satisfy our wants and wishes. It is true we mean in May next to enlarge our Printi i2 Establishment, but it is pr ncipally to enable us"to publish a series of PerioJicals, in order to alrance, as far as we can, American literature and science. A specimen of tins purpose we have already given in the New York Lasckt, which has already a circula'i sn of nearly 3000 copies in a six week's existence. If the President of the United States, or Doctor Brandreth of Broadway, sen Js an advertisement to the Herald, they get the worth of their money, and th? advantage of our vast circulation. Tney and all others are welcome to the use of our columns, provided they pry the usual rates?and they have a hstter reason, in our circulation of 27,000 to stlect the ll?rald lot their advertise ?n-nts, than the United States Courts hud to appoint the " Courier and Enquirer," with only about 500,) circulation. But these are all very s nail matters in the propress of the great and mighty revoluiion which marks the p*es-nt are. The rapid decay and hd proachmg downfall of the la-g' class of newspapers conducted on the credit system? and the final triumph of the smaller cUs<, conducted on cash principles, is only a branch of the great intellectual movement which began with Luther and Calvin in Europe, and was seen first in action here in 1776.? Faction and cliques have hitherto a'tempted to train?l and trample over the press nnl the Preti ieney; bat in the mutations of party, and in the Providt me ot Heaven, a man has been elevated to the Prendency, contemporaneous with the new development of the pre**, which is calculated ti inspire bopea in the mind of the pa'riot and Christian. This singular and heaven-directed appro* mition ot the Presidency and the ind -pendent rewsjapei press, on tha same great pnaciples affecting the currency and other public measures, is only, therefore, a natural event in the progress of the present age Yet it is only the first m a series of phenomena, that will hereafter astonish those who have not been astonished by the Bo* Bill, or t<u hed by the Boa mania Incident* Connected with the Great Bo; Ball. In our recent rem irks upon the great Boz Ball we omitted to notice the admirable arrangement trom first to last of the Evecutive Committee, an their untiring exertions to have exerything conned ed with the ball as perfect as possible. Never di any man, or body ot men, work with more energy good judgment, fine taste, tact and propriety; th result^was that their success was complete. Nothin occurred during the whole evening to mar its joy oisneas and pleasurable.festivity; not the slightei accident of any kind; no quarrel; no black looks no passage of cards or of arms; no struggle fc oreredenrt"- nn nnna*ne?. nlthmioh the Inrcest not sible amount of fun. The committee also de serve the lasting gratitude of the whole communit for their vigilance in looking after the lights; am when we consider that there were over lOOtf light in the room, including gas lights, wax candles, oi lights, (Jcc , and over :5000 persons present, movinj about amongst all this blaze of light, a majority o them in light muslin dresses, with crape, lace, rib bone, and light gauze dresses, Arc. streaming abou in all directions?it is next to a miracle, and owtn) to the ntercy of Providence, that no accident oc curred by tire. And whilst tendering in the narm of the whole community, sincere thanks to the exe cutive committee, we must not forget a special tri bate to Messrs. Simpson and Barry, whose tact ant exertions in carrying out the views of the committet deserve all praise. The expenditure incident to this great Ball, cat hardly be correctly estimated. The bt-st informed, it couli cot be much under $80,000, most of whicl went into lit" hands of the working classes, and t large part of it to fern ties. Among the trades em ployed, were store keepers, painters, engravers, jew ellers, printers, postmen, carpenters, upholsters tailors mantua makers, milliners, corset makers, stock makers, hosiers, bakers, wine dealers, Arc., and several hundred women and men as assistants, cooks, servants. Arc. The hackmen alone mus have received near $2iKK), and the StK) boquets in the room cost at least $1000. These do not include the gentlemen attached to.the.Park Theatre, or the police officers. Among other amusing and pleasing incidents thai occurred in connection with this brilliant affair, we must not omit the following, sent to us by some "fair ladye." A lady (the talented authoress of a re' cently published memoir) applied to a distinguished and witty legal gentleman, a member of the execu cutive committee, for his assistance in procuring hei two tickets, or a pass to obtain entrance to the Ball This gentleman replied in the following admiruble verses:? Dear Madam :? 1 received your kind letter last night, The content! I have carefully read, It indeed would atlord me delight Could 1 itay and lend you in my stead, To see the Boz Ball. But this arrangement, dear Madam, went do; Ladies'tickets in fact I have none, And > ou in your letter ask two, And a ticket admits only one To see the Boz Ball. By a vote of committee no pass can be given, Nor any aJmitted but with ticket in hand ; In this dilemma, fair ladye, I regret I am driven To admit that 1 have no pass at command To see the Boz Ball. PS Since writinvtheca lines I hare seen the committee And earnestly begg'd them to give or to lend Threfe ticket!, 11 yet to be had in the city, That 1 might be able to aerve my fair friend To see the Boz Ball. My appeal* had effect?the card* are obtained, I with pleasure encloae them to you, And happy am I that your object is gained. And i.hope you'll be pleased with the view, When yon see the Boz Ball. As a proof of the tremendous rush to get a ticket to the Boz Ball, and ol the incessant besieging which the committee received, we may state that o? the day before the Ball, one of the committee received no less than 8G letters from ladies and gentlemen el the highest class, requesting tickets, <5ec. Anothei received over 500 applications during the week fot the same object. And we find that there were ovei 5000 applications for tickets that could not be satis iieil. Mas Dicnns ?There was a great deal of can osity to see and be introduced to Mrs. Dickens oi the night of the Ball; almost as much so as to get t sight of Dickens. Among other handsome compli meats paid to her during the evening, was the pre sentation of an elegant boquet procured for the pur pose by Mr- Barry. This was presented to her by General Morns, ii the name of the committee. The tiowars werecul led and combined by Tborburn, and consisted o the following specimens.

The company had most); all assembled at a remarkably early heur<?ev^n be fore 9 o'clock. Th'ey filled and crammed every pat of the house. Every seat in the first-agd second tiet 1 of boxes was filled ;,the. lobbies were literally jam med full by 9 o'clock- There, was scarcely an; such thing us passing or repassing in (hit quarter And when those who managed to struggle, ihr'oygl the crowd up to th?- box entrance, so as to get a pee; at the st^ve, "one look wns.enoflgh," (asthe yoOm woman said whcu she peeped into her mistress' love letter,) and they.gave up* in despaii al] itlep r dancinsr for that night. The floor, from the cenlri box to the scene at the back, of the stage-, was on< immense jim. There never was anything like i seen in this city, country, or any other-. Such a ire mendems mob of well-dressed persons ! Never wen ao many fashionable, beautiful, and well-dresuec ladies, ?o insufferably squeezed up before in an; place, or under any circumstances. There was i magnificent crowd, in which a celebrated auctionee lost bis wife, and although he searched diligently fo three quarters of an hour, it took him all that time l< find her. And yet there was no ill-humor shown Kvery one aj?p?ared pleased?all looked happyyes, and even delighted. They saw that there wa agreat deal cf good sense, some Utile nonsense, am n world of fun in the affair, and they were detei mined to enjoy it, and make more if possible?parti mlarly the ladies, who made as much fun am laughed as heartily as any of the gentlemen. 1, proof of this we need only state, that there the; -tood jammed and crammed together on that stag, for a* hour and a <j't trier before Bo/, came, 01 before anything but the great, big, broad, indeecriba ble joke of the evening occurred to relieve them Still they looked at each other and laughed, ant looked at the house it laughed, and looked at them srlvt e, and laughed and laughed again. Kvery bod] wondered and a;dfd, a* the old woman did at tht aiege of Belgrade, when the performance! would be gin, and bow they would begin. At laat, about f o'clock, Barry said to Simpson, " 1 thiuk we'd bet ter begin the tableau* ; he may be half an hoar ye before ha cornea, and they won't know what to dt with themwlvea, oi whvt to think of ihe whole atl-tir by that time. They can't dance, and, bj George, they must do something, or we must d< something." " Very well," said Simpaon, "begin.' Bam.) went the great gong; every body jurnpet with surprise?some with alarm?and a cry aroae ol " B >* i* coming," " Bo* is coming 1" But Die kern didn't come, and iaso went iltn gong again. " He' come now," was the general rematk, " where i he 1' "There he ta.d some aeven or eigh 1 wags, as the drop curtain arose from before the t bleau, and represented John Porey in ereen velv > email*, wuna wonueriul posterior protuberance ai 9 fantail jacket to match, with the two inch tail, ^ that part, forming one of the characters at Mrs. Li " Hunter's Fancy Dress Dejean.6. "That's him "that's Boz!" Most unoriental roars of laught e lowed this?bang went tb- gong again?down we e the painted drop, laugh after laugh broke forth fro " several most beautiful li;?j, and again the curiott and unearthly, indescribable buzz or hum of souni t of many voices, that was heard so often that nigh ' broke forth, and waa kept up till Boz really cam r Something like an attempt was made at a dance but the jam was then at "its height," as the rat said just before he jumped off the monument. Tf ^ music stiuck up, but Satan himself could not nai struck up so much as a reel or a stagger in that mo I msguificent niob. Ana this continued for tweni minutes, the Mayor and lady, and Phil Hone, stun "J. ing in the centre of the stage the whole time. Ti ut last, by sundry cabilietic signs, nods of the heai | and motions of ttie haud, it was evident that Bo like the Campbells, was coming?and then the bu; " became beautifully bewitching. After Boz hud been inirbduced to the Lady Ma; oress and several gentlemen, and been shaken b the hand till his arm ached, he breathed heavily,ca j one look up at the house, partly curious, partly b< wildered, partly sitiric, and a good deal humorou bang went the g">ng again?bang?bang?up wet 5 the drop, and there was the lady and pickwick i f the double bedded room. All laughed at thia, e: j cept Charles Dickens himse If, and even he cou! no'help smiling, at the funny nature of the who] 1 affair. la the midst of the laughing, bang went the gor.< down went the curtain, and then there was a moi awful rush to get a sight of Boz. Elderly of ceitain and uncertain ages, married and spinsten rich and poor, oU' and young,handsome and homelj t all strained their eyes, and some few theii necks (a , a geose does when it sets a stranger) to catch , glimpse rf his face. But he was ro provokingl short that the thing was impossible. At last it wa proposed to march him round the rocm. The ban t struck up, three gentlemen abreast went first lik . pioneers to clear a passage through the well-dresse , crowd, which was accomplished with dreadful difti cultyj Boz, with theLidy Mayoress on his arm | camenext; and then Gen. Morris with Mrs. Dick . ens; then, the Lord knows who came after them . for the crowd fell in, and one could'nt tell who frcn which. . After another tableau, by dint of some terrible el forts on the part of Duncan Pell, Jatnes A. Smith and several of the door committee, a space wa cleared large enough to form some half a dozen co tillions; the music struck up, and Boz found him self danciDg with somebody?but it is extreme! doubtful whether he knew, in the contusion, who i was or not; for there was hardly room to breathe Still, he worked the muscles of his face and fore head up and down, laughed out of his large mouth (pretty fair mouth too, considering it is only : mouth,) and took his turn in the dance. It is tru that he " chassekd'' once when he ought to hav< gone " forward one," and that he turned himse! when he ought to have turned his partner; but tha > he didn't turn his own head ofT his shoulders, or ge it turned for him that night, is one of the funniet affairs of the evening. The last we saw of Boz, he was in the lobby c the second tier, coming from the direction of th refreshment room, in company with his lady, th Mayor, dec. And he was then looking pretty el lectua'dy used up. It appears that the excitement ' the crowd, the talking, the heat, the dust, the fun 1 the sensation, th? cottp d'eil, the whole thing ha ' given him a sore throat, or what seemed a ver ' good imitation of it, and the Mayor kindly took hin and his lady home in his carriage about midnight.And that was the last of Boz that night* r . r The SrcosD Human or the Boz Ball?Th Park theatre last night was lit up again with a the brilliancy ot Monday night, aa tar as an an mechanism coald go; bat pature was wanting. Th life and beauty that by thousands lit up the seen on Monday night, was absent last night. It is tru that, by nine o'clock, about 300 highly respectabl and well dressed gentlemen and ladies were presen but up to that hour no one seemed inclined to danc Some of our fashionables were there, but they di not take the door kindly at all. And these 3t seemed lost in that immense and beautiful ball roon A few walked across and around the room, to loo at Hillyard's beautiful paintings, and the ornament but that was all. The causes o( this were partly the very wet nigh s and pertly the absence of Boz, which latter is a< ' counted for as follows:?

These vessels mount no more c) than the number they are rated. The sloops of the second class mount twenty-two guns, and those of the third class mount the number of guns tha1 they are rated. The brigs and schooners rated ten, mount from twelve to fourteen guns, and-thsse 7 marked without any rate, mount from one to six. J? The two small steamers mount four guns, and the Missouri and Mississippi each mount eight sixty^ e>ght pouuders on their quarter decks, and two 120 >e pounders forward, all Paixham guns. Two of the y steam ships mount eight, and the third six gnns. i. Persons unacquainted with naval affairs would most probably imagine, from the rates, that there were actually but 5044 guns in our navy, where as there are about double that number. |(j Medical Movements in the Metropolis.?The it- Faculty of the New School of Medicine have just 7 completed arrangements for the establishment of sr three cKniquts?one devoted to Surgical cases under 1 the efficient and skilful management of Professor Pattisoi* ; another fer Medical cases, under Profes sor Revebe, h most judicious physician; and a ie third devoted to Obstetrics, to be conducted by Pro1 feasor Bedford.

Feb 16 ?'The minutes of last meeting were read and approved. A bill from Patrick Byrne and Tennis Fowkes, for eom pea cation in examining tha sink at Chambers street, in reference to the Colt tflkir, was offered and reterred. Bill* of oeffier M'G rath and Bowyer?the one #90 and the ether #120?for attending Philadelphia and Albany steamboats, at $2 per day, were received and reterred. The Comptroller made a verbal communication, in which he stated that owing to the difficulty relative to the Collector of the 6th Ward, the tax payer* bad not been called upon twice, according to law, and consequently the additional 1 per cent for non-payment could not legally be impoaed. Aid. Lee offered a resolution, which waa adopted, anthorlaing the Collector to receive taxea in that ward nutil the l*t March, without requiring tee extra interest. Expanses or Colt's Trial. The bill of E. C. Barton, for refreshments furnished to the jury and attendant officers, on the trial of John C. Colt, was presented. It amounted to $400,50, being 75 cents each for dinners and 50 cents each for breakfast and tea?it also includes a charge of #22.50 for cigars, and #12 or #14 for beer. Much discussion took place on the apparently high price of the bill. Alderman Leonard observed that the charge included refreshments furnished te several officers. The committee deemed it improper that the county should have to provide for them, but when the great excitement was taken into consideration, and the necessity for the officers being in constant attendance, it was concluded to recommend the payment of the bill. Mr. Barton received an unlimited order from Mr. Westervelt, deputy sheriff, to furnish the jury and officers whatever they desired, agreeably to instructions from the Court, except spiritout liquors. Some contract should have been entered into, but such was not the case, and we are bound to pay the bill. Mr. Barton had sworn to the bill being correct, and believed he had even lost money by the dinners, as the table was supplied Ilk ,h. h?al thai that ???U -?' 1 Alderman Benedict, after stating that a verdict should b? set aside, which had been obtained after a jury had indulged in so much smoke and beer, moved that the charge for beer and cigars should not be paid. In old times, he said, jurors were allowed nothing but water. Alderman Leo.vakd was sorry to find the gentleman oppose the bill so strenuously. As to the time when jurors were allowed nothing but water, it was when lawyers were not in the hsbit of keeping them for twelve days on a single trial. When lawyers charge $500 toy defending a case, and keep jurors, we are bound to see them taken proper care of. Alderman Lee observed that the amount of beer actuall) furnished the jury itself was smvll, on an average about a glass a day. He did not think that sufficient to set aside the verdict. Aldermaa Woodhull stated that the jury should have been provided for in the tea room. Aldermen Bisio* and Lee thought it would have cost more than now charged. The latter observed, that the members of the Court and one or two others bad dined inside of the half, and Mr. Cooper hjd had the modesty to eharge $1 a meal for cash, although he had given them but a little fricasseed chicken and some roast beef. Aldermen Pordv, Ishess, and Williams, also the Recorder, made remarks ia reference to the matter, after which the report ia favor of paying the hill was adopted. Alderman LEonaaD then offered a resolution, which was adopted, stating that hereafter, in criminal trials, the Board of Supervisors would not ' be reaponiiblt for spirituous liquor* or lermtniea ( liquor, or cigars, furnished to juries. [Colt's trial will cost the city and county something like f20W.] Pat or Assessors. Aldermen Purdt offered n resolution,which was adopted, authorising the Supervisors of the respective wards to designate the salaries they thought the Assessors entitled to. The supervisors of the following wards then made their reports, and the salaries were fixed as follows: First Ward, $100 ; Seeond, Third, Fourth, and i Thirteenth same as last year; Kigth, Eleventh, and l.Mh, $450 ; Sixteenth, #t>:?. The other members were not prepared to rape rt. The Board then adjourned. Not a Store !?

Leeds, was relumed. Mr- William Clem kit Haogerty was again called upon the stand as a witness. The first question pnt to him by counsel for prosecu ion, was to ascertain what conversations 1 ad passed between biiuself and Amory & Leeds, relative to the sale* and disposition of merchandize, classified in the Invoice given them, subsequent to the charges alleged in the indictment. [ The counsel for defence objected to the admissibility of the evidence.] The Court deci h d that all questions calculated to show the iutent to deceive, were relevant ???t admissuble, whether the conversations were previous to or after the original agreement. The counsel for defence objected, aud requested the Court to ni'tc their exceptions to all evidence of transactions or conversations, not applicable to the definite charge in the iudii traent. Witness continued.?On the 20th of March, 18-10, I called upon Amory & Leeda, and naked whether we should pay th^ rales of goods at auction sent by them, or retain it in payment of advances by us; they said they wished the money, urd that our advances were fully secured by goods in their possession; if we had known the goods were in the public stores, we xkould not have made 10 much of an advancemnU on them on account of the wjment of ihtdutict. After considerable argument relative to certain locations to be put to witness, and backing and riling ou the part of counsel for prosecution, th? witness contradicted his tirst answer, and said that hey would not havC made any advances on goods in the public stores.] The Recorder having been called to organize he Board of Supervisors, on account of the abicnce of the Mayor, tho Court took a recess for >ne hour, uatil one o'clock.
