Probable Arrival of th? Caledonia. We think the steam ship Caledonia must have arrived at Boston yesterday. If she did we shall re. ceive her news some lime this morning. An Extra Herald w.ll be issued scon after it reaches our office. Th* .hit riitiidtscy.?various curious and complicated movements have been goinj on for a sh >rt time past in this city, with a view to fasten Mr. Clay on the whig party as their candidate for the next Presidency. Mr. Clay is like a noble race home ; he bus many good points?many strong points?many admirable points about him, but he has also many strong'}objectionable points. V/e very much doubt that he would make a good race ; and we are hall inoliaed to think that he would be distanced th: first heat. However there is a long interval before the election, and in the meanwhile, we must sit down calmly and philosophically, and dispassionately review all these movements, and rhow the probable result. The Opinions of our Contemporaries on (he Libels on the Court of Oyer nnd Terminer. bv the Wail street Press. On every hand, from the tnouth of every 'good citizen, we see and hear nothing but the most unqualified censure and indignation, upon the atrocious course pursued by the Wall street papers, in the repeated publication of their gross and aggravated libels on the Court of Oyer and Terminer. And the inquiry is all but a universal one, what will the Court do to protect its own dignity ? But before we discuss this poiut, let us give ihe dispassionate opinions of one of our contemporaries upon this subject. After stating the terrible outcry that had been made by the Wall street press in relation to a harmless jru d'tsprit published in this journal, and of the excitement and prejudice they attempted to raise in connection therewith, our contemporary goes an very justly to say .? If our judicial tribunals arc to t>? influenced by the public preitin the decision* they are to prououuee upon individual*; if private hate and rancorous malice, auto be poured out by the conductor* of the public press to influence the public, and by that means, to excite a strong prejudice against the accused part r i it then becomes the duty of the Court to protect that party from any undue iufluence which may have been thus created, and by their judgment, to show that they, at least, are uninfluenced by the popular commotionihu* excited. This is all strictly?religiously true?private hate and rancorous malice were beyond question, the leading motives that actuated these journals in their outcry against this paper, and not a desire to pre serve ine uignny 01 a court; because the dignity of no court was for a moment assailed by us?the course of true justice we never dreampt for a moment of attempting to impede. And as to " protection" by a Court or any members of a Court, why it never entered our thoughts lor an instant. And for the best of reasons?that we knew the Court could not be swayed by " any undue influence" one way or the other. Still the following remark* of the journal above quoted from in relation to the course of the Aldermen, are true. He pays:? Suppose they had lent their othcial atation to the gratification of the wiihet and feelings of personal revilers, what would hare been the result ? The judicial tribunal would have been the medium for private hate and malice to aatiate their appetites! Persecution would have triumphed over justice. Moot undoubtedly ; and thi? was all that the Wall street papers desired. Justice they neither thought or cared about. T ey knew, as tveil as the whole community knew, that the jtu iTtapril published by us was perfectly free Irom malice; and not in the slightest degree calculated to bring any Court into contempt. But they were determined to get up a false issue, it they could, and make use ot the pre- I siding Judge aud his associate Judges, if that had been possible, which it was not, fortiie purpose of venting on our head their pent up malice of the last' five years standing. AnJ ihe same piper we have already quoted, in speaking ot the technical label published by us, says with truth and justice : Tbst libel ? u Sarml'ii n .'/? chuta-'rr Complied to the lin cantaint d in the Commercial and Courier. It cmi taint .1 no charge* of co.-rup ion It contained no imputations af bribery ami trac t ! No compromising olollicial nation lor lavar or re . urd.

The libeller* hat o ileru*11 led an investigation? lout investigation thould immediately take place. They have u'iutnid the reaj.oiuijil.ty oi making the charges, and should be compelled to piuvetliem true, or stand convicted by a jury. Tlu- inveatigatiou fA-y demand, the juiVir af-o will <1 man-', and it rcir.uius 10 lie seen wnctherlhu Court and public prosecutor will do thtir duty ui tou inttancc, or u tu t vr they will make a distinction b.iwt t-u Jaai. a Wilson Webb, J imt-a OvtJ-n , BenntU, and WilUam L. Stone,,tvhen they know that every dishorn ?t imputation contained in the article* 1 aforesaid, am (alae m ev ry particular. The character* | of the gentlemen aita li ! are sufficient guarantee for the purity of their intentions and inti grity of their conduct. If, therefore, itnct jn.tice in this ca?e rhouli! be done, and the lUtl kuIJ betaken at the criterion for the pun- 1 iahmeat to be lnllicted upon the libeling, thsy would * richly merit th-pumahm-M they ?i.h. dto have indict ? ed upon other* The charge* made by them are of a very uriportant character. The whole commuuitv arc 1 interested tu the queilion and will not be latiined until i thmtame are folly lnv? *tig?ud. A* citi,eU, wacall ninths Court and public preiecutot to sec that tuch 1 invt*ligation ta made. In connection with this same subject, the 'l ivening Post," of ia*t night, has a so-newhat similar ' article condemnatory of the courre pursue J by other ' jou nals ; al'bough, if we mistake not, that paper ' was at first inclined to join tu the hue and cry against this paper, it now says that on converting with many int)?rdt:al and sensible persona they find them nf'h" opinion tit it a of {S-liOwaanutHoiei t, it not :o) much, lor the jtu d'tprti r|was vtmed u,>on- CM eou-i- it wn ; and no right-minded and unbiased person can entertain any other o;?iuiou ? If aaj oae has i rig'il to cjmtiUin it is ourtcltr', that the court did not make the tine strictly nominal. The Pt at goes on to siv: ? | The whig preaaee, howevar, view the mitter differently. and tne Commercial of Kri tejr eveuing came out with an article charging William i'exton II ill-1. the elerk of the Court of Oyer and Terminer, Mesara.

The Aaarlcaa of Saturday evening copiei tao tlandor of the Commercial, and ac companies it w ith tormaafabuM mom virulent than the original Libel. In conclusion, the "Post" fay*, "Th# publishers ?f the lib^lou which we have animadverted, deserve a severer puni.-hment, inasmuch as th?y have put forth a far grosser an(j mire atrocious libel." It winds up with a refutation from Mr- Hallett of the charges against him. This we think waa unnecessary ; for not only was there no collusion?but there could be no collusion. With these remarks we dismiss the subject for the present. We rest satisfied that the authorities will act with even-handed justice in this matter. It is a very impoitant one, and in their hands we leave it. We not only have no desire, but we will not attempt for an instant to forestnl public opinion in relation to i rt. We have not?we cannot have the el ghtest ncrcnnhl tVflinrr in fh*? Hits /v.Ur aim tu ou r ?. --.."s " """ ?= our course has ever been?the fearless dissemination ot Truth?the inll-xible support of lotegrity and Justice at all hazards. The CnosBY Sthm.t Cli>i<iue ?This dinique was, as usual, attended yesterday by a crowd of students and junior practitioner*, who hear the remarks, and witness the operations performed by Drs. Sterns and Paskcu. A nntnber of very interesting cases were presented, and several operations of a formidable character performed. A full report of the proceedings will be given in the next number of the f.(inert. Dr. Cheesmah, and severs! other distinguished members of the proftssion wsrc present. We understand that Dr. Staticss wi'l commence on Monday next, the delivery of a c >urt-e of leeturf's on a class of diseases, which have been generally more maltreated by quarks than any other of the miladies that alllict kumauity. Verbatim reports of these lectures will be giv< n in the iMncit, and will nndoubtedly attract, as they are Htsttred they will deserve, universal attention. Popular lectures by such distinguished physicians a? Dr. Stevens, reported by an independent medical person, willefleot wonders imlhe circulation of sound medical knowledge, in a form accessible by the whole crmmunity, and will soon exterminate quack.-ry and imposture. Lono Island Sound Steamers.?It is thought by many that the commanders of the steamers which run through the Sound, lead a very easy life,and have no cares nor anxieties But such is not the fact We b lieve there is no steam navigation in the American waters, where so much skill and coolness are r-quired as on the Sound. We have instances of danger and destruction truly appalling?the burning of the Lexington is one, and the wreck of the Charter Oak, another. And on Monday night of last week, when the wind blew seldom harder er fiercer, the Nurragansett was in its midst, braving it as tnan fully as a boat could brave a storm, and came through safely, under the skilful guidance of Captain C. A. wooisey, to ine astonishment ol all her passenger?, many of whom, in the height of the gale, gave them selves up in despair. Ilut even danger like this is not the only disagreeable part of Sound steam navigation. It must be obvious to those who travel much, that these gentlemanly captains sacrifice almost ail domestic comfort, which is scarcely to be remunerated for. Still, if better compensated than they are, their daily passage through ih< Sound would become smoother and easier- When men risk their lives for others, they should be well paid, for every life is worth something. What does this Mean.?Has it ai?y Refekexce to Captain Schinley 1?This is the very error of the Moon?the age of elopements and mystery. Yesterday we found the following in one of the Wall street papers Qrj-To " 11."?If " R." could for one moment witness the<leep contrition and self reproach caused by his ommunicutien, nil that i* past would be forgiven, and hi* better leelings would prevail on hint to holdout one ray of hope far the future?for which hop* the writi-t alone txi't* It is impossible that that kind heart.which nevvr willingly slUicled any, would suitor one which ho stil 1 m??t think of, to rink in despair 1 By the love of one who cannot here be named, and by the d>ite of thir, he is entreated to forgive the past, and rest assured that wherever he is, the moat sincere prayers for hit happiness and comfort are with him from " C." " Thev tell me sht's no longer fair, that time has swept aide f The lustre of her yauthful brow, hn beauty 'a blooming pride ; But if her heart is still the same, still gentle as of yore, Then is she beautiful to me, more lovely than before. They tell me that her cheek is pale, aa it the twil igt hour, And that her eye has lost it s light, her glance its former power; But if her soul is still as chaste, still gentleness is there, Then is her eye still bright to me, her cheek to me still fair. For O 'ds in the shrined soul, where beauty purely dwells, Where virtue lives, and health exists, like pearls in ocean shells. Give me a feeling faithful heart, perfection's richest prize, This is the temple of all love, where beauty never dies M What does il mean 1 Who can toll us any thine; about it 1 Does the man that married Caplaio Schmley know 1 By the by, who did marry Captain Schinley 1 Who Mvrried Captaih Sciiiklev 1?We leara from the best authority, that Juatice Merrill was the man and magistrate who had the bowels of com passion to luve pity on two suffering lovere, und to marry Captain Schinley?brlieving every thing right.

It will be well worth hearing; as tho-e say who have heard hint- Boz has been invited with h ? lady and may perhaps attend ; for he is a g'eat advocate of temperance, although he did mike Mr. Samivel Yelltr, senior, dtp Mr. Stiggin's head in the hor-e trough.

Thin splendid festival, w sick was postponed from St Valentine's Day on account of the great Box Ball, came off in brilliapt array last night, at Niblo'e. The bachelors, who always go ahead, except in getting married, were profuse in their extravagance, determined to excel all the balls of former years, in honor of their distinguished guest The theatre was converted into a large ball room, beaut.fully ornamented with festoons and evergreens. The orchestra on the Broadway aide, was decorated with roses, and Wallace's baud performed delightful quadrilles, gallopades und waltzes, la the saloon were supper tables with cats to accommodate the whole company, in number about six hundred. At ten o'clock Charles Dicksns and lady, accom by bis Honor tt;e -Maj or aou.iauy Mayoress, entered the dancing ball as the band were playing the Norm quadrille. The music ceased and Boz was marched to the upper part of the h-ill, and introduced to]as many as he could be,when the festivities recommenced. Among the distinguished characters who congregated around the literary lion, we observed the Dictrict Attorney, J. Hoxie, J. N. Reynolds, Geo. Davis, Captain McLean, J. Coster, Sandborn, of of the Cornucopia, and others. After staying a short time, Boz and his lady retired. Among the ladies present, we observed Miss Perkins, Mrs. Purdy, Miss Miller, Madam Ferraro, the Misses Shariio, Miss Brown, aud a galaxy of lovely women. Altogether, the Bachelor's eclipsed all previous balls of the season, and was ia eveiy respect decidedly more Pickwickian. Common Council. Board or Aldxkmbx, Feb 21 ?Alderman Purdy, President of the Board in the Chair. A comuaunicat.on wus received from the Mayor, stating that he had received the annual return of the Soctety for the Reformation of Juvenile Delinquents, for 1HH, also the yearly report of the lessees of the Fultoa and Sou h Ferries ; the names and crimes of nrisonera confined in the city prison on February 1st, 1812, from the keeper j a letterfrom citizens of Illinois, relative to national defence, and staling that a fire shiphat been invented by one of their citizeas , a letter tram Moos Ulin, giving a diagram of two suspension bridges, and relative a .. tL. .L..A.Ua Ik. f ?r n a A il wai stated that Jackson pier, North River, had been selected a* a place of deposite, awd therefore further action wat unnecessary. The other papers were referred to the proper committees. A communication was received from the citizens of Dutchess county relative to the construction of the New York and Albany llailioad- It gave a full uccouut of a large and enthusiastic meeting recent ly held in that county in which the completion of that important work was moBt strenuously urged as necessary to the wants of all the counties on the east of the Hudson. It was referred to the special committee on Railroads. A communication was received from the Pub ic School Society, inviting the Board of Aldermen to attend an examination of tcholarajof the.highest classes, at tha Tabernacle on Thurday evening,21th inst., which was accepted. A long communication was received from the Public School Society, asking the Common Council to urge the legislature to postpone definite action on the bill before the legislature, until the whole subject can be fully investigated. It repudiate a any charge iu the present system on the. same ground as heretofore presented by that Society before the Common Council. It was referred to the Committee on Laws, consisting cf Messrs.

It was, therefore, takeu np and passed. So all ye that have demands, now present them, as the Comptroller says the City Treasury is over* flowing. The report of the Committee on Charity and Alms Hoass, relative to the purcha e of so much property at the foot of 61st street, East River, as is required for the public convenience, was presentee and laid on the table. The report presents, in an able manner, the great necessity of the city's , having possession ol property sufficient at the foot of said street, to control the superintendence of the ferry to Blackwcll's 1:land, and also the netes- , sity of having possession of a juiWing at the ferry , to be used as a house 01 detention and shelter for sick persons and prisoners about to be conveyed aerosstbe river. The report also contains a strong recommendation in favor of its objects, signed by all the police magistrates, l>r Vaehe, the resident physician, the Recorder, the keepers of Blackwell's Island, the Superintendent of the Alms House, Clerk of the General Sessions, assistant physician at the Lunatic Asylum, and a number of otberpnbhc oiliceis immediately connected with the institutions on the Island, who Have longtince seen the many evils,'that almost daily transpire from the want of such profession. It Will certainly beadopted by both boards of Aldermen, without a dissenting voice, as no person wbohas ever visited the institutions on the island, could have returned without expiessing their decided opinion in favor of the commendation presented by the committee. The report relative to an appropriation for the erection of an additional work house buildings on | Blackwel:'* Island to accommodate the female convicts, was laid on the table/or the present.

The report concluded with n resolution recommending an appropriation of $10,00) towards the construction of a statue $2,5 )0 to be psid in advance, and that Mr. Stout toe selected as the artist to execute the work. It is estimated that the statue will cost $110,000, $160,0 )0 of which they contemplate given by the Legislature ef this State The Board then adjourned to Monday afternoon of next week, at fire o'clock.

My auswt r is that there was none kept un il after the fue at the public stores; it was in December, 1838, that I was dirt ctod to make oat the invoice given to Haggerty & Sons ; I was directed to make an inventory of cloths aud threads, as lar as they would go towards ?100,0?0, and fill np the balance with other goods ; I had made out a previous invoice far the Messrs liaggertys, of about ?42.000; on the 20ih of January f>2 hales of she-tings were added to the last invoice, which m ids the whole value of it ?14 000; these goods wene placed in Me*?rs. Haggerty's tore, No. (i!? fine street; I copied tke good* in these invoices from the receivers' b<> k ; it contained no entries of the^oods in the pnblic stores ; the invoice book contained the whole rtock of goods in store j it was discontinued about the time this list was made ont, and the entries afterwards made in a book called the foreign sales book; the eleven bales of cloths were entered into the receivers'book on the 14th of September, 1830 ; they were not entered in the custom house entry book at that time; on the 2f>th of January, 184:), I find roar bales of cloths marked 269, 270,271 and 272, entered inthe cnetorn house bookjit did notoccurtome it the time that the eleven bales of cloths entered nto the invoice were in the public stores; Mr. Amory attended to the business of entering goods at the Custom House, giving bonds, ice. ; 1 understood hat this invoice was made up for the purpose of rbtaining advances from the Messrs- Haggerty ; I (new some of the goods on the invoice belonged to Willons 6c Co.; 1 also knew that Mr. Hazlettwas he agent of Willont for the sale of (hose goods ; 1 ilso knew that Amory Sc Leeds bad the power to lispose of on pledge, those goods without bis conlent or knowledge ; Mr Hazlet had no power to lispose of goods without consent of Amory & beds ; there were other gobds received in the iame bill of lading in which the eleven bales of sloths were entered ; several packages ma: ked A. L. Jt C , numbering from 234 to 239, were amone hem ; they were received on the Kith of Septem?er, 1839. For the twentieth time witness anlounced thai in making out the invoice in ahich the eleven bales were inssrted, he reerred ovly to the receiving and entering book. Ur. FIsz ett was aware that the goods in the $11,000 invoice, had been pledged to Haygerty At Soas ; 1 do not know (hat he was aware th it any of he woollen goods had been pledged ; I do not mow that the 12 bales of woollen shawls were in he store in Pii.c street ; I plaecd them in the in* roicelor the same reason that 1 inserted the cloths is before s a to. I ; I made out the invoice sent to \dee,Tiupsoti At Go ; in making out this invoice 1 lid not call the attention of cither Mr. Amory or Leeds, to the fact that some of the goods entered mi it wore also on the invoice sent to Hriggc-rty At 0 ; the reason for this was that I supposed that '<o contract with them had possibly been dissolvid : i have no reason to suppose either Mr. Amory >r I.eoJ. knew that any of the goods on the invoice cut to Haggeity At Co., were also on the invoiee cnt to Adcc,Tnnpson & Co. ; I had nothing to do vith negotiating for any advances on goods ; when he cloven cases wt-re burned in the nublie stores, I tad no knowledge that they were in llaggerty's in.

Adjourned Meeting at the U S. Bank?Great Excitement. This vra* the day of the adpurnrd meeting rf the Stockholders of the United States Hank, for the " purpote of considering and sliirmiog resolutions : |nciium meeting, annulling the two last alignments made by the, to wit: that to ecure the circulation and depositee made the 7th. day of June, and that made in September for the benefit of all creditors, known ai the general assignment." The firit assignment made to secure the Banks holding the l'ost Notes of the United States Bank was not brought in question. It being an adjourned meeting, the offi:ers of the previous meeting took their seats, to wit Henry C. Conmr, a* Chairman, and Joseph R. Chandleh, Esq. Secretary. The Secretary read the proceedings of the last meeting, which, after some little dispute on a point of order, were approved; not, however, until an appeal from the decision of the Chair had been takea. At this point a person in the body of the crcwd asked a little delay nstil stockholders were able to get in the room, alleging that they met with difficulty in obtaining tickets of admission from the officers of the bank. Some scrutiny was observed in order to keep out those itwho were not stockholders. The resolutions parsed at th<* last meeting, and which were the subject of affirmation at thia, were rvau. Mr. Watt* moved to amend them by substituting resolutions requiring the validity ct the assignments lobe passed upon by the legally constituted tribunals of the country. Hs enforced this amendment by a speech of considerable lcngth-?spokc of the difficulty of reaching the riul opinions of the stockholders on the question, and the greater diffl cl Ity ?f their passing npan questions on ivbitft sble lawyers disagreed, lie was at length in let / rupted by Mr. Randal, who said he would notobjeo ( to the amendment- Oh the supposition that tnCiV would be no objection, Mr. Watts yielded the floor; when. Col. Daytox rose in opposition to them. He contended that all ftfe assignments were not only valid but for the best interests of the stockholders and other creditors of the bnnfc. To preve that the officers of the bauk had the authority to make the assignment, he read at length from the law autkor zing them to make. He contended that they were aot now within the e?gn>zance of any human tribunal. He averred that i he power to "alien and convey," was incidental to the president and directors of every incorporated company, even if not expressed in the act, and cited Chief Justice Marshall in proof of hit position He contended that the resolutions offered as an a mendment, were of the most mischievous char-cter, nod direetly in the face of those previously offered by Mr. Randal. He said theirHeudeaey were to taise doubts of the legality of the auiflbmeats, under whieh debtor* would screen themselves from their just obligations to it; and it would further preclude the trustee* from making titles to the vast amonnt of real estate tbat was to be sold. Thus, the effects of the institution, while this point of validity was being determined, would be wholly nas.ed and frittered away. He said no better disposition of the property could be made now, than these assignments had a ready made of it. Then why set aside the assignment already madel Why endanger the preperty of the Bank, or lessen its value, by disturbing existing arrangements 1 He said the validity of these assignments were maintained by the written opinions of Mr. Bivnar, Mr Skkokant, Mr. Mnskditu, Mr. R.awl,and others. He, therefore, hoped that they would receive ^t ho sanction of this meeting. Here several persons ro.-c and contended far the floor, which was finally givtn to Mr. Randall, who asked that he might be beard. He said the remarks o( Col. Drayton called lor something from him?said that the duplicity end deception of certain persous bad misrepresented him, snd charged him with a desire to frustrate the first assignment made to secare the banks. . Ihis he characterised as untrue. He wanted that that assignment should stand, and that all others should bo made to coufcrot with the act of Assembly and with the true interests of the oreditors of the institution. He said the opinions quoted from Mr. Binney and others, were w. it ten before the nasigameets were made and could not, therefore, apply to them. Mr. Ingraham said that it was asserted that there was no mtde of reaching a judicial opinion in this ease. He said there was, and pointed it out. Mr. Watts obtained tbe floor, and urged his amendment at considerable length. He thought n legal judgment perfectly practicable, and far more satisfactory than onr popular action through the stockholders. When he bed concluded. Mr. Gibbon* offered an amendment to the ameadmn?# In iki. . IL.I II - ? " " ., .w .... ...c.i . iwi me assignments 01 Jane and September were made in accordance wiih the beat intereata of the atockholJera, nnd that therefore this meeting affirm* what wea then done.

Mr. Randall. ?It is not true.

Mr. Rahdall.?(angrily )?111 will define yours" Mr. Gibbons?'* Ton are at liberty to do so."? And continued his argument. He ccmended that these assignments had protected the property of the bank from judgment creditors, who were probably now ranged round this room ready to poaneo upon the effects of the bank as soon as the assignments should be set aside. A person cslled cut from the crowd to know if idoption of the amendment would settle the nsatter in difference. The Chairman and Mr. Gibboks both answered alTirmalivt ly. John M. Read?It will [do no auch thing. It irill settle nothing. Mr. Gibbon* returned, and concluded by tom? iisparaging remark*in reference to Nicholas Bidlie and Mr Randal, hi* counaei; and took hi* teat imid gn at hurrahing. Mr. Sen w ib of Near Y?rk made a short apeech, in which lie roasted Mr. Bayard, who wa* prevent, i little, for hi* declaration chat the Stock of the Bank wa* worth ?46 per share. Mr S. ia a foeigner, and held* some eight thousand ihaie* of he Bank. lie aaid he wanted something mora han mere talk and promiees.

Mr. Rand at. offered a resolution that ii wa* expclient to mike a general assignment. He made a ipeech half sustaining hie resolution and half in re-, jly to Mr. Gibbous, which was pretty tart. He said vlr. G. had said what be bad, respecting him, pcrMinally, from hie irresponsibility.
