NEW YORK HERALD!* w York, Tuesday, March 1, 184)1. Strom Skip Caledonia. We ate still without tidinga of this steamer. She had not reached Halifax last Friday. If she arrived there any time after that, orders had keen issued for her to remain. So we shall not know for at least a week whether she be safe or not. The following in relation to her was brought 011 yesterday tnornihg, by Harden <V Co's K/prets Lane, per fast steamer New Haven, Iroai 1'rovt denee:? [From the Boston Timet, Feb. tf7.] The steamer Unicorn has just arrived at the wharf la East Boston frcm Halifax, having been sent here by the agents at Halifax, to take the mail and passengers on Tuesday, the 1st March, in place of the Caledonia, not yet arrived. Nothing had been heard of the Caledonia at Halifax when the Unicorn left, and considerable alarm was telt there for her safety. The Unicorn left Halifax on Friday afternoon, at 4 o'clock. The day previous to sailing, in conse<]?ienreofc report of two fishermen seeing a large vessel at seme die ance from ihem, apparently immoveable, s apposed to be the steamer Caledonia, ohe was despatched to look after the wreck and render assistance. The packet ship Acadian, for Boston, left Halifax the sunie time with the Unicorn. She has on board the cousin and crew of the American schooner Convey, Capt. "Harrydon," which was wrecked on Sable Island-, date not stated, and the captain and crew arrived at Halifax, and took passage in the brig Acadian, Capt. Joins. Mr. Cunard, who is a passenger in the Unicoro, iuli rms us that no serious feurs are felt by him for the safety of the Caledonia. Mr. C. thinks she has been disabled, and nut hack to England. The Unicorn will take the mails to Halifax, and if the Caledonia has not arrived, she will proceed to England. li the Caledonia or the Columbia should arrive at Halifax during the absence of the Unicorn, she will be detained, ai.d on tiie return of the Unicorn the passengers tnd mails "'ill be transferred to the Unicorn, who will immediately proceed to this port, and the Caledonia or Columbia return to Liverpool with the passengers and mails fiom Boston. ONE DAY LATER FROM LONDON. ARRIVAL OF THE ROSCIUS. The last sailing packet ship Roscius.Capt Collins, arrived last night from Liverpool, whence she sailed Jan. 1 Uh; she brings na full files, including one day later from London, but nothing later from Liver pool. There is no news of any prlitical interest. The personal quarrel between the King of the French and the Emperor Nicholas grows stale; and as neither of thrm are likely to add piquancy to the quarrel by personal invectives, the public naturally grows tired of it. The Tories are struggling with might and main to prevent the return of Lord Morpeth for the Irish metropolis They parade the amount of the sum* which they are prepared to spend is bribery and corruption. Consols have again fallen. The Kings of Prussia and Belgium are in London, on a visit to the Queen. Th? Court, fee.?Her Majesty will hold drawing-rooms at St. James's immediately after the christening of the Prince of Wales; and we are informed upon an authority competent to form an opinion, that they will be more numerously attended and more splendid than any that have occurred for the last twenty-five year*. The season will, consequently, commence at an unusually early period in London, and the fashionable hotels will be thronged by foreigners who are expected in this country. We know that it i* the intention of the Court to spare no pains to make the reception of the King of Prussia in this country as brilliant as possible, and that a tseries of/Pfc.t, of the most brilliant description, will be given in honor of his majesty.? Conrt Journal. Tliara ie a UttU Int*?r npiva frnm Pario Letters from Paris announce that orders are going to be forwarded to disarm two ships of the line, The Ministry believe, perhaps, that the English are diminishing their squadron id the Mediterranean, because some of iheir ships have left Malta, steering to the coast of Spam ; but we know that other ships will come in their stead, and that, besides, a great number are stationed in the Tagus, at Cadiz, and Gibraltar ?I> Commerce, Jan. 11.

" .Singular details transpire respecting the proceeding ot the committee which prepared the Address of the Chamber of Peers, Messrs. Mole and D'Argent; and successively six members of the committee are said to have refused to undertake the report, which, in consequence fell to M- Merilhoa. The committee for drawing up the AdJrrss of the Chamber of deputies will meet to morrow or the day following, to hear the draft of the Address read.

Sire, that this convention will contribute to the consolidation and the repose of the Ottoman Empire. "Your Majesty has ordered important diminutions in the public charges. Nevertheless, these diminutions have not sufficed to establish, between the receipts and expenses of the State, that balance so n: ceaaary, as well as so univtrsallv desired Tins ba* lauce we shall a.tempt to establish without reducing our ni.'.itary forces under what the safety and dignity of France require, and without adjourning the labors claimed by the country. "We shall examine with interest the project of law that your Mbjeaiy announces to us for the establishment of a grand system of railroads. The Chamber of Peers is aware that the facility and the promptitude of the relations between different parts of the kingdom are means of strength and of riches. It willalways earnestly accept all the projects that your Majesty shall cause to be presented to multiply audtoc 'inpleCe the channels of communication of every kind, as far as the financial resources of the country will permit.

" It is a pleasure tor uj to hear from the mouth of your Majesty the expression of your confidence in the duration of peace. France, which would be ready lor any sacrifice to aistatn her dignity, regards an honorable peace as the greatest ot all blessings" The strengthening of French power in Algeria ought to be at once the work of time, as well as of perseverance and courage. That land, which the valor of our soldiers has conquered and defended, nud where the Princes, your sons, have so often braved death, and a Horded the example of ail the military virtues, belongs to us by victory, and will appertain to us by tne benrti s of civihzition.? Your Majesty has said it?'Algeria will remain, henceforth and forever, French.' * The Chamber of Peers will attentively examine the projects ol law which shall be submitted to it in the aatrie of your Majesty.

The surgical cliniqut of the College of Physicians and Surgeons, was as usual attended by a crowd of students and junior practitioners. The cases were numerous and interesting, and elicited very useful remarks from Professor Pakkeh, whose plain and practical manner of explaining the nature of the cases, and their appropriate treatment is very well adapted to communicate valuable information to the students. A lull report of the cases will be given in the lutnctl. Alter the proceedings of the cliniqut were over, a meeting of the students took place, for the purpose of presenting an address and testimonial to Dr. Ql ai Ktsimsi, the able demons'rator of anatomy. The address, which was very well written, expressed the warm esteem which the students universally entertain for Dr Quackenboss, and alluded in terms of high approbation to the able and efficient manner in which that gentleman had occupied the place of Dr. Watts, the learned Professor of Anatomy, during bis lamented illness. The chairman of the meeting, after reading the address, presented to Dr. Quackenboss, a case containing a very superb set of surgical instraments, with an appropriate inscription. l>r QuACKE.tBrss briefly and eloquently replied, and expressed the deep sense of gratitude with which he received these flittering evidences of the regard and esteem of his pupils, to w hose attention and indulgence much of that success which they had been pleased to ascribe to his labors, had undoubtedly been owing. The classes have for the present closed, both at the College and the Stuyvesant school, and a whole regiment of young M. D.'s have departed to bless the country with their scientific skill. srnikg Fashioi* for Hats.?Oilanda Fish has just got out his elegant spring fashion in the article of Hats- This style is the second of the series of original American fashions as commenced by MrFish last tall; and the elegant and unique style of this hat cannot be surpassed. It is also ten per cent cheaper than most stores?the price being but 84,50 tor the best quality. We shall consider these the best and cheapest hats in the city till we see any better. Reported Loss or thi U. S. Sohk. Grampus ? A report was very current in Boston last Saturday evening, that the U. S. schooner Grampas, Captain Van Brunt, had been lest in the late severe gale, and that two of her beats and some of her spars had been .picked ap and tarried into New Bedford. Steam Ship Clvde, Captain Woodruff, will leave this morning at five o'clock, for Halifax. Chatham Theatre ? Thorne against the world. The Chatham Theatre has been full before and frequently, but never bo absolutely overflowing as last evening. Sefton went through the part of Jemmy Twitcher in his happiest Btyle, convulsing the house with laughter throughout the performance. This evening this much admired piece is to be repeated with the addition of the " Rival Pages," and the brilliant piece of " Paris and London," in which Mrs. Thorne plays Rose. Park Theatre?The new comedy of " O'Mali.ey," presented at this theatre last evening, was well received by a respectably filled house. It contains mach humor, and aa an acting play is equal to any of the new dramas recently produced. A little pruning will benefit it, however.

An old bruiser nnmed James McGuire, entered the store of John Bennett, in Grand street, on Sunday night, and presented two quarter dollars, for which he arked a half in exchange. Upon being told that they were counterfeit he commenced an attack on Bennett, and beat him severely, but was finally arrested and committed. Tut Evil Result* cr Evil Ways?A young man named Edward Clancy, of Pennsylvania, while on a visit to this city, a few weeks since, was induced to accompany one of the city cyprians, named Jane Montgomery, to a den of infamy, kept by a man named Charles Stone, alias French Jack, in Warren street, a few doors from Greenwich, and while within the premises was robbed of ?'?>().

It embodies a'l the testimony in tke case, the aercral exceptions made by counsel during the trial, and various matter supposed to be pertine nt in the cause, forming, as may readily be supposed, a m ghty voluminous bundle. The District Attorney, Mr Em met t, and the Court then set out ia earnest to compare notes, a process which consumed several hours. Mr. Whiting | called att ntion to some little discrepancies, which were udmitud and altered That portion whieh relates to the formation of the Jury was then gone into. A rumor prevailed abroad that an attempt would be made to impeaeh some tl the panel, on the ground that they had previously expressed an pinion, &c , but nothing of the kind was attempted 1 he exception ia piincipally based on the fact of the counsel not hiving been allowed sufficient time in which to ascertain the chara.terof the 200 tallymen ordered.

Orvlllc Taylor's L??Un on FaMle , SehooU, Last Might, krfws the Mechanic** Institute. This lecture was attended by a very large and respectable body of ladies and gentlemen, and went of! with great 6elat. We hare only space to-day to gire the concluding patt of it, which is most ad mirable. A good education is a young man's capital; and of cotirtl ralne is it also to a yeuog la.'ly. 1 see in the distance a dahiis, a showy, roagn.fiseut flower, though without fragrance, lar^e in its eolume, splendid in entering. Uy its aide is the mess ro;e, equal ia coloring and beauty. At 1 gaze at ihem in the distance, I scarcely know which to admire most, liut, ladies, suppose I am peraiited to go and pluck <>nc, iu wear n ia my uosom?wmcn uo linnet The rose Tor it* fragrance. I look upon (he igno rant iady and the educated lady, and, aa they pass ine in the street, I scarcely know which ia the more beautiful. But, suppose 1 am privileged to go and pluck one of them, a partner lor life, which de I take? (Applause.) But, ladies, what ia fashionable female education? Does it not aim more at the gilding than the gold? More at the accomplishments than the acquirements! Perhaps it is rightly termed accomplishment?as it is iutended to accomplish a certain thing?matrimony. (Laughter.) Do we not value a female's education more for its show than its use ?more for what it costs than for what it is worth? In educating females, we load the fingers with jewels, but eut oflth* muscles tf the wri?t. (Applause, aud a strong feeling through the audience.) She has learned to make rugs for tea-urar, pretty Ottomans; and is delicately prepared with all the plans, designs and materials, of lace bandkerehie.'s, muslin collars and cuffs; but she cannot cut out and make a garment, nor does she know hew to mend a pair ct stockings. (Applause.) She can make cardracks, flower-ctands, aad chimney ornaments; can knit beautiful silk purses, kuows something of head work, and can make wax flowers; but she does not know when a meal is well cooked. And yet she is to be the mistress of a family, and to run ucr ucr uoiue idc piace ui orocr, oeauiy idu peace. I Wedonot, however, contend that woman ahould I be merely the " notable wife," and great only in pieklesrnd preserves, making good bargains, or in shopping. No, abe mutt unite with thi* muck of the ideal. She mutt not be without a large ahare of sensib.lity and imagination. She mutt be able to ditcourse tweet music from the energie* of own soul? (Applause) To exalt by her confertation, eren her husband from the matter-of-fact turmoil of worldly business, to the purer atmosphere of chrittiaa sympathy and love. Man, in his rarioue struggles with the world, sees oa every hand enough to disgust him, and make him sick of all mankind. At he proceeds he is liab'e to become the same hard man with those that surround him. He, too, lives by circumspection and circumvention; singleness of purpose, sincerity of heart, become with him names only. Surrounded on all sides by those who would impose upon him at every turn, he finds it necessary to work, if aot on the same, at least on a similar principle. In the world, he finds little of real honor, of genuine integrity, or disinterestedness?where should he find themf At home?in the wife of his bosom. Should all the good and hely virtues grow round the altar of hie own hearth, he will never become a villain, though abread he may be surrounded by villany. (Applause ) How much then here depend* upon the woman! Tongue cannot express the importance of woman in relation to this part of her social duties; aadhow indispensable it it that the should have a mind so ennobled, that nothing can shake it; so enlarged, that itcanuot be circumscribed by anything short of her husband's love; so exalted, that it reaches to heavea, aad from those " sublime heights" hold the balm (or every wound of the spirit. It it for her to keep man within the aphere of duty, of charity, of virtue, religion, and peace; and shall ehe not be educated for tbisl Aad why, gentlemen, it she not so educated? Because, with us, gentlemen, whose most momentous thought is, to determine in our minds whether the locks of our heads shail haag lower befere or behind?(laughter)?whether they shall carl or hang straight?(renewed laughter)?whether the whiskers shall come down under the chin, or stop halt-way?chsers ef 1 ughtcr and applause)?the n ost perfect character lot a woman is, to be characterless? fine by defect, beautifully weak.? (Laughter.) Madame de Stael, a woman of more talents, more genius, more learning, than any other woman of her age, was often heard to say,?disgraceful as tae sentiment was to btrself, but ten thousand times more disgraceful te us, gentlemen,?she was oftea heard to say, " 1 would give all the beauty of the uiiiiu iui ino umuij ui mc ??uj: now, genwemrn, why did she say thisl Because she taw you and 1 ready, at all tinea, to flutter aronud aoaae little animated vacaum, provided it be pretty, and to leave her sitting in the corner alone?(Long and repeated applause ) Said a mother to her daughter the other day, "Mary, 1 am afraid you will never get anytime |or reflection." "Why, ma," said she, "I stand before the glues three hours every day."?(three rojnds of applause.) Mary understood what pleased us, gentlemen. If 1 occasionally make you laugh, my friends, it is to afford a little relief, and to mane you hear me out; for the subject is of vital importance, and demauds our most serious attention. ***** * But why is ther<* this great mesa of untaught feeling and muscle 1 Why arc there so many ehild!tn in the United States without the means even of a common educat.on 1 Why are the schools so low in character 1 The great cause, gentlemen, lit s in the views and practice of our wcalt -y, intelligent, and {prominent citizens. These, except a few, more noble-minded and patriotic, send their children to private tchuola, and academies, and seminaries.

Oh ! that one man should die ignorant, who bad a capacity for knowledge, ahould make us all weep." The common idea is, that bis needs no other education than will fit him for labor. Bat thia is treason to bis divine nature. Hie claim for an edu* cation spring* from his nature, and not from his calling, lie is to be aducated because Ood made him fir this high purpose, and net because he is to labor aid move stones about the earth. He is not a mare animal of muscles and woik. He has class and tender connections with his neighbors nnd his finii Ha foW?r husband, ion, friend, christian ! He has a hone, a countrj, and a church; and is such a being, ao nobly and fearfully related, to be educated only for a trade? Yes, says the spirit of the age. an education will only make hin Ui.-contentt d with his lot. And now, my friends, |w bat is this spirit?this character of the age ? Is it educational ? derotional 1 f?o; it is mechanical. We lire to make great things, rather than great men. We set too much value on the work, and too little on the workman. It is an age of rail roads, canals, banks, currency, and legislation. If you wish to see the spirit of the age embodied, and at one glance?as yon sit in the rail car, carried through the air, like an arrow to the target, at the rate of twenty miles the hour, look into the field, and gee the free horse, throwing his heels into the air, leaving a fire horse yoked in his stead !?(Ked lubled applause ) The sailor, on the wings of steam, flies ever the ocean, and rides the billows ass tamed horse. We live to perfect the outward machinery of life, rather than enducate and ennoble this inward living principle. We w ?rship the bellows-blower of life's anthem, and not the organist. It is an age not of education, but of piofit and losa. It does not adore the true and the beautiful, but calculates the gain. The heart of the nation pours out its worship towsrd the body politic, but the soul politic is forgotten. Everything is done, '-Not for Conscience sske,but for Purse's sake." Now, worth means wealth, and wisdom, the art of getting it.?(Laugh er and applause.)?And, as Fielding said, "A patriot, in these days, means a man who wants an office ; and politics is the art of getting one Worth, means power?wealth rank? and true knowledge means the art of getting all three "?(Laughter.) We have become not only mechanical in action, but mechanical in thought. We have now our com mittces and societies for making and publiahiug public opinion?aud our educational machines? Lsacasterian and monitorial systems, aud lessons mads easy.?(Applause.) Thus, man has lest his conscience, his separate existence, and become incorporated in the soulless mass. He ha?, in the word* of Carlyle, become a part of a great machine. Man, thua confounded, is a thing?many thing*. The planter is a thing sent into the field to gather food ; he see* hi* bushel and hi* cart, and sinks into a farmer, instead of being a man on a farm. The merchant is caged in the higgling* of hi* shop, and hi* eonl i* subject to dollar*. The mechanic becomes a machine, and the. lawyer a statute book. All is for sensation, motion, mechanism! Nothing for thought, conscience, lore, education. The great strife of the nation is "i'or a bat it shall eat, and what it shall drink, and where withal it shall be clothed." The body is Dires, clothed in purple and fine linen, and faring sumptuously ercry day?while themind is Lazarus, lying in rags at the gate, and fed only with crumbs which fall from the physical table.?(Prolonged cheering.)?Yet, gentlemen, the age ha* taken away man'* divinitr?his nobler part, and it would be satisfied with King Henry IY., if each peasant hod a chicken in his pot. The age would inquire with that man, who, having heard a great poem praised, asked If it would make mutton cheaper.?(Roar* of laughter ) It i* an aae of moner and maehinerv?mcner setting machinery in operation, in order to reproduce money. I do not kaow how it is here, but I do know how it is in the city where I live. You can tell whether it be the nme here. There, the greet struggle, from sunrise to sunset, with each men is, te see how many poe'rets he een empty into his ewn. (Renewed laughter end applause ) To be rich '.here, is accounted a merit; to be poor, an offence A false standard of merit is thus erected, by which it is less imp rrtanttobe wise and virtuous than to be rich.
