If she reached that city any^, f,,nr o'clock vesterdav afternoon, we shall receive her news this morning Look out for mi Extra Herald. The Public School Question, One of the moat important measures now before the Legislature of this Stale, is that which affects the present state of the public school system- We consider it next in importance to the subject of Stale credit ; and a* such, deserving of the earnest ano calm attention ol every good member of society. That some alteration is required in the present system is conceded, we all but bigots, and those who never keep pace with the improvements of the ags. The strong opposition which has been made by the preseut trustees of the public schools in this city to any change,?to any improvement,? has caused divisions and schisms in severdl portions of society which before presented a solid phalanx, and which ought never to be allowed to extend; but snouia be neai^a ana cicseu umiuu as gursiuir. Of the importance uf a sound system of public instruction to this would be folly now to speakThe point in contention is, shall it be a universal system or not 1 Shall it be a plan capable of universal application, or only partial in iu operation 1 This subject has continually engaged the time, attention and talents of the members of our legislature, and may as well be put at rest now and forevtr Although we do not concede that the mode of estimating the relative attendance of children in the common schools of our Sute,io the city and country schools has been fairly estimated; stil no one cau deny that a large number are kept from attending the public schools in this city, who would attend and derive beneficial instruction therefrom, if there was but a slight alteration in the system. All this is bad,?the evil i? increasing daily?children are either excluded, or el9e voluntarily exclude themselves from participating in those benefits, which the liberality of the State provides for all. To this must be added an additional expense incurred by the present school system in our city, by which it appears that it costs three times as much per annum to educate a child in this city as it does to educate one at a country public school. Oi this we have abundant proof in the followiog calculations The whole number of children in the state, ( xAlnoiuA />f tKn (Mtu nt Ni'W Vitrlt ^ hetWt>*?n th#? uirea of five and sixteen, is 583,347; and of that nuhtber, 582.198, being more than, ninety six hundredths, attend the common schools; while in the city of New York, out of the number of 85,571 children between the same ages, the whole number reported by the com i issioners et the ctry a9 attending the schools, was ontjr41,3H>, being lets than sixty-hundredtl.s ol the number, although the share of common school moneys distributed by ihe state, and expended in the city, amounting to $35,115 10, was equally large in proportion with that expended in the oth?r counties of the state- But in addition to that sum, an equal amount ot $85,415 10, together with the additional sum of $80,000, was raised by the common council, sweiimg the total amount entrusted with the Public School Society, for the purpose of education, in one year, to the sum ot $130,880 it, while the whole sum extended in all the rest tf the . state, and by means of which 302,194 scholars are taught, is ouly $531,553 75; making the expense in the city of New York more than $3 15 tor the instruction ot each scholar, while in the other parts ol the stale it is leas thau $1 04 for each scholar- In other words, the expense ol instruction under the public school system in New York, is more than tare* limes ine expense ?>i instruction uriaer inetu.itriCt school system The comparison between the number of children attending school in the country and the city, is still more favorable to the former, u the supposition of the acting Superintendent of Common Schools be correct. I here are, he Bays, upon an average, about ? "> children instructed in each of the districU reporting; and assuming an equal average number to be under instruction at eacn of the 23ft districts from which no reports have been received, the aggregate number of children, between five and sixteen, exclusive of the city of New York, not taught in any district school, would amount to only about IS,000. These are but a few of the evils which it is in the power of the legislature to remedy; and which, by the recent unanimous report of the Committee, pre. aentrd by Mr. Maclay, they seem determined to da. They appear to have approached the subject calmly and cautiously, determined to infl.ct no injury to the aystem, but 10 correct its existing evil', as prevailing in the city of New York, and to extend the benefits of ibe system by every available means. Kvery one has long since seen the f#||y of suffering the pnb'ic schools to'depeod for support upon voluntary contribution? ; for, wherever th a plan prevails, deplorable ignorance among the rieinj generation al o prevail r; and therefore it is, that in th j and other northern states,that the people,through their legislature, deterin ned that the Public School rv/Ciety r.iouia or funainen uy iiiunry * mamra from the Common School Fund, ami by taxes upon U?" people, wttich nre cheerfully paid. Cuter ail these circunutaueea, it becomes a matter of yreat importune* for us to cou-idcr whether 'I appertaining to th?ee achools and the distribution of this money, ahaii be virtually under the control ?f a close corporation or not. F.fiy Irmteea, who tniy double their number, control the whole matter from year to year; they are choeen by the membi r? of the School Society only ; ten dollars makes a man a member tor life ; and the Society is, therefore, for all practical purpose, a close and perpetual corporation, not tnienable to any body whatever, having vote control of the whole system ol public education ia New York, and the disbummeet of nine tenths of all the money raised lor this purpose. Now the question is, can there be an improvement upon this! There can. The next th'ng is, - hall we go on till the end of tune under the old ay-tern, or rhall we make some linprnvem-nta thereinl We ought to do the latter. That the present plan is dissatisfactory to a very Urge number of perrons is evident, from the fact that for the las: lt? years, the trustees ot the Public School* in this city have had to fight and contend against the discontent and objections, and siruggles for improvement made by several thousands of our fellow citiz-no T? the evils ol the system must we also attribute the fact of to many thousand children being seen upon our dock*, wharves, fee , and runt.msj w iM through our streets, md growing up in idlene.-s and dissipation. Where, then, in the remedy 1 The L? gialattre consider, ani with much show of teason, that tl.e evil began with a departure from the equal rycU m of common school education w hich prevails o ft every other part of the State, and they recomir.ei d that the *y?tjm, aa it prevails in the interior, shell be extended to Una city. And this is their plim They propose that " there shall be elected n each ward of the city, three commis ioners and tv o inspectors of common ech1 ola, and extending to II e ci'y ?>? much of the gene al law ol the State as ft ?tea to the power* and dntiee of the* ?tfi?rrr.

By the by, speaking of.the Box Ball; it waa almost a miracle that the Park Theatre was not burnt down during the evening of the bail.

" Who's there," refpontive was the call; "a friend, who conies to aid distress and waits y< ur bidding in the hail; whose powers with habeas law and lynch are such as bursts the prisoner's cell, and e.nds him hack to home and friends the wonders of i'.s force to teli.

In the Senate this morning, a me saga was received from the President of the Unit ad Stater, enclosing a communication from the Secretary of Slate, in reply to the resolution of the 8enato, adopted oa the ISih instant, at the instance of Mr. Walker, calling for infor nation ia relation to the action taken by this Government, in the Creole case Mr. WAiJtsa requested that the lommaaieatioa would be read, which wa- done. It contained the Sccret?ry of State's letfor 'e Mr. Everett, informing him of the e rcum tanecs of the Creole case, us rcp ntei in the two protests already published; and also of the grounds up-? I which this Government would rest in herdemaad of redress from the Britith Government. In Mr. Webster's instructions te Mr. Eierett, he quotes largely from Mr. Stevenson's correspondence with Lfirdt Ptlnif ralan and ASerdpen. and ap?ii. ? at much length, and with great clearness, the tame doctrine* maintained by. Mr. Stevenson on the general piineiplei involved in the conti overs?, and applies thote principlca to the Creole ra'e. He then urges hia reaaona for hoping the preseut ad* miniatration of Great Britain will yield to thu jnstneaa of thore principles, and that such red re s a* thia country baa a rirht to e<pect will he given, lie also allndee to the special mianion from England, to negotiate existing dllVnnces, and state* the propriety of Mr. Everett's governed in hia remonstrance by the nature of the powers given to the special minister. Mr. Walker expreaeed his gratification that so satisfactory a commun cation hid resulted from hi* resolution. It wonld ha admitted by all who had listened to the reading of the document now before the Senate, that the argumente which it contain* ' are drawn np with great ability, an J, what is still better, with great foree of truth aud just principles. He considered it at eon Amatory of thu doctrines before nrged by the Seaat >r from South Carolina [Mr. Calhoun] in his resolutions, unanimously nloptedbythe Senate on a f<>rmor occasion. He hoped sincerely Lord Aberdeen would be found m >re reasonable than Lord Palmrrston, and that the present administration of Great Britain would do ample justice to t'lis eouutry, finding that Lord Palmerston's doct rises are untenable,and thst on every principle of national justice, the grjnnds he assumed should be abandoned. The new administration in Englandi came into power by a majority ro large that it most feel itself strong enough to adopt principles founded on an enlarged and enlightened basis of policy. He meved that the communication ba printed and referred to the Committee on Foreign Relations. Mr. Calhoux seconded the motion, and took the occasion to say that he had heard the document read with great pleasure. He considered it covered the whole ground, and trusted it would he the means of putting an end?to the dangerous doctrines which had keen maintained on this subject. That document, earning from any other quarter, could not have equal effect, bat coming ftom the souree it did, it was calculated to produce the best results. His ebjset in risieg was to stcond the motion of the Senator from Mississippi, and to move that n thousand additional copies be printed. The question was first put on the printing oi the communication, which was agreed to. The question thenfeame up on printing the thousand additional^ copies. Mr. Clay hoped ihe resolution requiring the re. ference of a proposition of that kind to the Committee onfPrintiaggwould be complied with. He saw no necessity for printing a thousand additional eopiei. Itwas consequently*nferrtdtothe Committee on Printing. Mr. WAi.KEarthen|renewed his^votlon to refer ttia communication to me uon.nmiee on foreign Relations, which was.agreed to. After the presentation of petitions, memorials, and resolutions, Mr. Tallmadge, chairman of the select committee on the.eurrency, read a report and bill. The report is elaborate, and seeass to be drawn up with much care^and ability. The bill differs from that reported to the house in two important features. The whole exchange provision is stricken out, and the central Exchequer is authorised te employ the state .banks, sueh as are ia good credit and pay .specie, to transact the business of the government. Nt thing is known as te the purpose of Mr. Clay in respect to the currency, but it is supposed that be will resist everything which shall eonform'to the constitutional views of the President, but he leaves the Senate in less than six weeks, and then we may look for more indepccdence of action. The nomination ofjMr. Bradford, aa Judge of the southern district of Pennsylvania, was rejected by the Senate to-day by a vote ,of seventeen ayes to twenty-two naya. The causes of the rejection have not transpired, but the supposition is, that he was thrown oaf in consequence of his devotion te President Tyler and his administration. Mr. Bradford is a geod^ lawyer, s|aun of great personal worth, and a thorough whig in his politics, but the sway of Mr.jCJsy ia undisputed and supreme ia the Sen* ate, and nothing bat his word is tequiredto ensure the rejection of the beet men in the nation. It wu (apposed that that the whigsjn the Senate were about equally divided, and that the friehde of the administration, united with the personal adherente of Mr. Webster, compris?d a moiety of thepirty. but the rejection of M*jor Barker and this of Mr. Bradford, indicate that the power^of Mr. Clay ia undiminished. The whig party came into power oa the most widely proclaimed professions of retrenchment and reform, and General Harrison, daring his brief presidential career, aad PreaideatTjler, up to the present hour, has manifested every disposition to carry out those pro'essi >ns, and to infuse into every branch of the government that spirit of economy and honesty which had for years beei banished from the'public servlee. Hut what can be done by the Executive, when unsupported by his subordinates 1 The best intentioni, the most earnest endoaver>,ean bo as effectnally thwarted by the omia. sion ot administrative officer* to co operate, as by a positive refusal to aasist in ferreting out abases. The payment of a thrice rejected claim by the Secretary of War, shows that the spirit of economy ha* no place in that department, at lea*t, whtn a favorite i* to be rewarded. Under the cireum tancci, we look upon (the transaction a* one *o extraordinary in iujcharecter, as to call for laresligation. If the Secretary hasjlaw or precedent for the allowance, he eaa no d?ubt satisfy the Execatire aid Congress of the propriety of hit eoaduet. If he has neither, and the money was paid in consequence of the peenliar relations sabstoting between the Secretary and General Scott, it is proper that the faet should he made public Th circumstances connected with the tranaetion are aa follows : In 1838, President Van Burcn* directed General Scott tofproceed to tho Cherokee ^country, and by force, if^nrceatary, to caosc a removal of the Indians agreeably to the stipulation* of the treaty.? Bat Mr. Van Bu en, in order to prevent violence end bloodshed, authorised General Scott, to enter into arrangnmrnts or contract* for tho removal of the Indians without a resort to force, if it should be practicable. Gcnerag8cott went to the Cherokee country, and tbu Indians were eventually induced tn remove, without the employment ef force- Cut the importance of Seotl's services in the matter have bren greatly exaggerated both by hitaaelf and his friends. lewst perfectly understood st Washington* be*
