NEW YORK HERALD. W w York, WoncUy, Mauth 7, IMS, A<t?i#r? U#rH The Lancrt now present* the beat medium oraddressing the medical profession. It* circulation i* nearly three thousand copies weekly, and extend* to every section of the Union. Publishers of medical works, surgical in Mrument makers, dentists, he., canuot tind a moredrsi able and useful vehicle for their announceaisnts than this j>opular periodical. Druggists in the city cannot in any other way so effectively address country apothecaries, a great number of whom are practitioners, and subscribers to the Lancrt. To physicians themselves, who wish to dispose of their practice, procure assistants, or form partnerships, the Lmmtt affords unequalled opportunities of extensively communicating with their professional brethren. To professional young mra desirous of obtaining situation*, the same facilities are ottered. The various medical ashoois and colleges throughout the Union?conductors of piivatc hospitals snd mnrmaries, fcu. should also avail themselves of the advantages thus presented. The Lancrt nuw circulates in every considerable city and village throughout the Union.

It was expected that the Unicom would have arrived ihere on her return, if the Caledonia had reached Halifax But the Unicorn would hardly have had time in five days, with a dense fog on the coast, to have gone to Halifax and thence back to Brs'on. We are still of opinion that the Caledonia put luck to some port in Ireland, or to Liverpool, after Juving steamed one-third of her way across the a tluntir. The Legislature of this Slate-Sew York and Albany Railroad- Direct Tax Bill* The members of our Legislature seem more disposed to enjoy themselves than to attend to their . business. If they continue to act a* they have acted lately, soon there will not be a qourum present. Many are in this city; others are on a frolic in Massachusetts, and numbers have gone home. The sooner thsy adjourn the better. But first we wish to call their serious attention to one or two matters. We wish to ask the New York delegation what has become of the bill to extend the charter of the New York, Albany and Troy Jlailroad Company! Does Senator Corning in'end that it shall "sleep the sleep of death." It is high time that some movement should be made in the matter. If the Albanians have resolved to oppose everything that concerns the interest of this city, because of the con- J temptihle jealousy of Troy, it is well that we should t nun if I'vorv daw hHiIh frenli nroof that the Railroad to Albany and Troy must and will be made, and that too, speedily. We may not have another so mild a winter for half a century. We cannot for four months in the year see Boston accessible from Albany in less than ten hours, and New York removed more than twenty-four hours distant from the out let ol the Erie Canal. Extend the above charter, and even now, euough could at once be raised, to push on the above work with vigor. The road must, and we repeat, sh ill be built. We appeal to Senator Corning to act like a man, to call up the above bill and vote for it, in that spirit of enlarged patriotism, that should characterize every Senator. There is another subjeot to which we wish to call the attention of our Delegates in the Legist llure.? Certain individuals who have a greater interest in the city of Albany than they have in the city of New York, (landholders, as it is said in the former city,) are circulating diligently among the younger members of the bar a petition, highly injurious to the interests of the city of New York, and very advantadpoin to Alhanv This netitlnn under the false preiencs of facilitating the .transaction of the business of the bar, prays that1 the terms of thj Supreme Court, Court of Chancery and Court of Errors, shall all betaken from this city and given to Albany. Thus,'the city of New Yotk becomes completely degraded into a provincial town. And the merchants whose concerns are the most important, which these several courts are called upon to transact, must attend at Albany for the protection of !ieir rights. Every act of this kind deprives the Ity of New York of her due proportion of civil digity, imp tirs the value of property, and ought to be discountenanced. The Empire city, has on this head, gone far enough. She has yielded up the "Legislature" which ought to assemble here. She has given up three terms of the Supreme Court, and two otihe Court of Chancery. The New Y'ork Delegates will look out for this petition, note the petitioners, and rest assured that they do not represent the sentiments of the people of this city. One more word of advice and we have done for to-day. Let every Legislator return to Albany without delay. Go to work and dispose of all the business before them, practice retrenchment a* far as expedient and possible, pass a bill to lay a direct tax on the people of this State; and thus restore and preserve its credit; so that the rest of the Union may point with pride to the course ol the Kmpire state. After this is done, the Legislature should adjourn iminedi ately. Another Arrival from England?Sickness of the Passengers, and Death of the Captain. The fast sailing and fine ship Eutaw, Captain Rockett, arrived last night frsm Liverpool, whence she sailed January 25th ; but, unfortunately, like ihe Tarolinta, 6he did not bring any newspapers. She confirms all that the Captain sf the Tarolinta said about the repairing and re-fi:ting of the steamship Caladonia, and that ahe was ready for sea t n ihe 25:hof Janiary, and was advertised to leave on that day. Th- passengers alno say that it was the current report in Liverpool, that Lord Ashbutton would leave England in the Caledonia. Cotton had declined, and was expected to go lower every day. The E t'.aw brings 139 steerage passenger* ; and we deeply regret to say that three' passengers died on the passage, from some malignant disease, as it is supposed As the ship was coming up the lower bay the Captain (Rockett) who had been taken sick only two days before, died ; and whan his son went down to board the vessel, and fnnmr# frirKia fsthpp I the mate had the melancholy ta*k of answering him over the ship's aide and tell him hia father had just breathed his laat. Captain Reck ? long and favorably known a? one of o.ir ablcat and oldest packet captain*, having com nanded the Burgundy, in the Havre line, lor many years. Wtien Captain Rockett died, there were over 30 of the passengers tying dangeromly sick be low; and those on deck looked in >re like dying than living persons. The disea-t- that has attacked them appear* to be a very lingular one ; the mate says, that ome of them died in a few minutes after they were taken ; they dropped down on the deck and died directly, with scarcely any premonitory symptoms. Si. Patrlek'i Dap. We received, yeaterday, the following sensible note, written in a beautiful temale hand The suggestion it contains deserves, and will doubtless meet proper attention. The days when the fnaky asm* of Hibernia celebrated their holy-days by swal lowing gin-sling* and demolishing each other's noddles, have, happily, almost disappeared. In the hearts of none, do those kindly feelings of our Datura, which, wherever our earthly lot be caM, uni'e su*r hfurts in mitnnn. ?: i j ? - ? ? - ??? .UP| aiKtmni! (v imi uaiivc janu, more powerfully exiat, than in the Irish, lie in no friend to his country or his race who would wish those foeliitgs oMueratrd ; and every good man and loyal citizen will gladly nee them chenthed. But their exhibition must be confined within sober bounds. St. Patrick was a jolly, good-humored fellow, and occasionally cracked a good joke, as we are credibly informed by rentable tradition, but he was no friend 10 cracking of skulls, except those of tfyin* wrpenis and fi'ry dragons; and it is no contrail cliou to the (ruth of his peaceable disposition, that " He drove the frog* i .. a~ iku 0 Aud banish'd all the varmint!" So il his sons desire the repose of his holy bones, let them give heed to the following special Proclamation : Ths Editor of the Herald ia rarncitly solicited to leud bis powerful aid to forward tiie Temperance cause among the Irish population,by giving place to and recommending the nieatuie contemplated below.?Maicb Mh, 1811. That on the approaching festive day, the liish should regard it in a manner favorable to the happy change which Temperance Societies have sanctioned, by a grand Temperance Sottee Meeting on the evening of the seventeenth, at Niblo's, in which the ladiri are to participate. The relreehments to con sist of tea, collite, lemonale, orangei, dried fruits, ke? A band ol music with the Tvrolese saiastrels, and other divertuementt, to be provided between the intervals of speeches from several distinguished ipeskets who would attend. Several of the moat fashionable ladiea in the city?also the mayor will attend. The Presidents and olKcers of the several Irish benevolent associations in New York, as also the Temperance Societies, an"* such other gentlemen as approve of the mt asute, are requested to meet at Niblo's on Weduesday evening next, at 7 o'clcsk, to consider the subject. It is to be hope! the nuaiure will be taken up in other cities. Ihe Peace and War Principles. As tkere is sucha trrmtndous talk just now about going to war and we hare so naany valorous spirits floating up and down among us, wo commend the following admirable story of the apostle of peace, William Ladd, to the calm consideration of the valiant. It is from ttaa last i.umbar of Langley's Democratic Keriew:? " (t was not mere good nature, but the adoption of the peace principles, which madex^add thus gentle heattrd. A story which he often told with peculiar relish, seill illustrate this moulding of bis character?the gradual progress of his mind in adnptiug the peace principles. 'I had,' said he,' a fine field of giain, growing upon an out farm s<me distance from the homesteads. Whenever I rode by 1 saw my neighbor Pulsifer's sheep in the lot, destroying my not e* of a harvest. ibese sheep were of the gsunt, long legged kind, active as spa* niels; they could spring over the highest fence,and no partition wall could keep them out. I com plained to neighbor Pulsirer about them, sent him Ircquent messages, but all without avail Perhaps they wou.d be kept out for a day or two, but the legs of his sheep were long, and my grain rather more tempting than the adjoining pasture. I rode bya;ain?the sheep were still there; I became angry, and told my men to set the dogs on them, and if that would not do, 1 would pay them if they would shoot the sheep. "1 rode away much agitated,for 1 was not so much of a Peace man then as I am now, and I felt, literally, full of fight. All at once a light flashed in upon me. I asked myself, Would it not be well for you to try in your own conduct the Peace principles you are preaching to others 7 1 thought it all over, and settled down my mind as to the best course to be pursued. " The next day I rode over to see neighbor Pulsifier. I found him chopping wood at hia door.? 'Good morning, neighbor' No Answer. 'Good morning, I repeated He gave a kind of grunt, like a hog, without looking up. 'I came,'continued I, 'to see you about the sheep.' At this he threw down his axe, and exclaimed, in n most angry manner, ' Now aren't you a pretty neighbor, to tell your men to kill my sheepl 1 heard of it? a rich man like you to shoot a poor man's sheep!' "1 was wrong, neighbour,' said I;'bat it won't do to let your sheep eat up all that grain; so I came nv*P in anv tkai I nnnM loir* iiauo o hoft* In inn homestead pasure, and pot them in with mine, and in the fall you may take them back, and if any one is miffing, you may take ycur pick out of my whole flock.' " I'uififer looked e?nfounded?he.did not know how to take me. At laft he ftammered out,4 Now, Squire, are you in earneatl' * Certainly 1 am,' I answered;4it if better for me to feed your theep in my pafturc on grass, than to feed them here on grain: and 1 aee the fence can't keep them out ' "After a moment'! filenee?4 The fheep han't trouble you any more,' exclaimed Pulsifer. 41 will fetter them all. But I'll let you know that when any man talk] ol shooting, 1 can tboot too; and when they ate kind and neighborly, I can be kind too ' "The theep never again tretpataed on my lot. And my friends," he would continue, addretting the hndience. "remember that when you talk of injuring your neighbor*, they talk of injuring you When nationt threaten to fight, other nations will be ready too Lore will beget lore; a with to be at peace will keep you in peace. You can only overcome eril with good. There it no other way! ' L >t all those excited, exciteab'.e and valiant men, whn npp nntl hr*v?

Dear Bennett: In looking over yaur paper of yesteaday, nay eye fell upon your piece concerning our trouble* with Great Britain. I have noticed and admired throughout tbe decided stand you havo tsken in the midst of our perplexing affairs with that country. Some of the papers have run on in a boasting and bragging string of nonsen-s, while others have beoa perfectly inate and dead on tbo subject. I have ntvor seen anything of either of these in your paper. You have, in my poor opinion, taken decidedly the right courae; always advising nn amicable adjustment, bat warning the government and people to prepare for the worst. I thi.ik with you, "that it is time to look aronnd" in und tee if there is :.ny thing in the ddngers wbieh seem to er.eompass u?, and of which you have so often warned as; if there is,let us prepare for a contest with the roo-t powerful nation on earth It is as you say, viz ?"that we have no cause to fear a eonte-t with Great Britain;" but Knc'and is not a nation to be despised; her resources are ample.

Every parent in the community owes a debt of gratitude to the publisher for the liberality ard good sense he has thus displayed: asd when we say that the series is edited by Mrs Sarah J. Hale, it is a sufficient guarantee for tne excellence of the contents The series consists of 12 books, with numerous colored plates, very superior to the London class ot these works. The subjects are selected with great taste and good judgment, and they must take the place, in the nursery and parlor, of all tne juvenile rubbish in the shape ofbooks with which we have betn deluged for the last few years. City Intelligence. Tiie Board or Assistant Ai.dermen meet this evening. To-mokhow is General Jackson's birth-day. He was born in 1757, and is therefore 75 years of age. The Herald of yesterday morning contained exclusively, the account of the arrest of the 1'henix Bank robbers. We have since ascertained that Charles Wheeler, one of the rogues arrested, was convicted about ten years since of robbing the same bank of $500 >, in company with Thompson, alias Stales, and William Abbey, alias Allen, and Anstrjlher. Abbey and Stales ars now in the Boston State Prison for other offences. The draft of $1500 obtained by Conroy and Wheeler, from the Butchers' and Drovers' Dank, that led to their arrest, was traced by O. M. Lowndes, Eiq , who immediately requested a non-payment, agreeing to indemnify the bank (rum any loss, in case of suit against them by these rogues f?r its recovery. The money they receiveu from the Long Island Bank in exchange for the Highland Bank notes Etolen from the Phanix, was paid by Conroy to the Cashier of the Butchers' and Drovers' for the certificate. The notes beiag of $100 each, it became somewhat easy to ferret ou' the affair,and upon inquiry Mr. Lowndes faund that the certificate had been given out in the name of James Watson, of Philadelphia, and a false place of reside nce inserted as the house where he was boarding in this city. This produced suspicion, and when the certificate had been offered to Merritt & Miller, under the peculiar circumstances attending it, no doubt could exist as to the guilt of the rogues who have beeu arrested. O. M- Lowndes, Esq , has been en the alert for several weeks to detect these rogues in this business, and it is to his efforts mainly that they have been finally placed in prison. Lecture on Public Schools, Edccatioi*, <kc.? Mr. J. Orville Taylor gives his second lecture on this interesting subject to night; and we advise all who admire keen satire, splendid imagery and true elcquence, to attend. See his advertisement for the details. The Weather is as fickle as some members of Congress. On Saturday, the air was bland and balmy; the sun shone brightly, and its genial influence gladdened the hearts of all who could walk out and breathe the fresh air. In the night a storm sprung up, and yesterday was as cold, wet and disagreeable a day as we have had for a month past Last night we had thunder and lightning. The Pilot Law?The repeal of:this law, which does not benefit the shipping interest in the slightest degree, and which operates so very uojustly to that worthy class of men, the New York pilots, is loudly called ler at the present time. By a new and valuable arrangement the New York pilots are now more than able to do all the piloting require d in and out of this poit; and if the members of Con gress do what is right in this matter,"they sho uld .1 ,k.? n;i?f i j?>?? est vuiuaopiiui law wuuuui uciaj. Chatham Theatre ?As ?u to be expected, the rich treat offered by the bills for Saturday evening, being for the benefit of Mr. Sefton,caused the houre to be more than usually full. This evening Jemmy Twitcher appears in two pieces, "The Golden Farmei" and "M bb the Outlaw, or Jemmy in France;*' the performance to commence with the play of the Two Frende, in which Messrs. Scott and Hield appear together- The well known performances of these gentlemen are of a character far higher than that usually found combined upon one occasion; and, added to the mirth-inspiring eccentricities of Sefton, afford the theatre-going public a rare treat. Mr. Simpson's Benefit To night.?It must and will be a bumper. Mr. Simpson is an old, tried aad faithful servant of the public. Ingratitude in such a case would be unpardonable. But the worthy manager does not rely on his claim alone?he has pre sented a bill of the most attractive character, and " Old Drury" will be radiant with the beanty and fashion of this great, glorious and wonderful city.

It may be known to yon, that the Wei tern Rail Road Corporation recently extended an invitation to the members of the Maaaacbuaetta Senate and House of Representatives, the Governor, Lieuten aut Governor, and Council, and to the Executive and Legislative departments of your State, to meet eaeb other at this plaoe; and exchange congratula tions on the great trinoaph of steam power in bringing within a single day's ride the diverse points of Boston and Albany, and thus establishing the great line of intercommunication with the far west. In company with the assembled wisdom of the Bay State, the Judges of the several Courts, strangersef distinction, &c. (among whom we noticed the celebrated Nestorian Bishop, Mar Yobanna, decked out in a truly oriental style, wiih a maguifr ni Tnrtish tiirhso and Persian rnha.1 we started from the e.ty of the Pilgrim*, at ih ; bottom of Linecln street, at A. M. yesterday, and commenced our excursion. We numbered about four hundred; and were all in glorious spirits. On the way to Worcester and this place, the members indulged in much pleasantry and btdinage; and cracked thair political jokes about Iltrrison songs, "Tippecanoe and Tyler too," with right hearty good will and tamper. As for ourselves, we took a seat by Mar Yohanna, who seemed to be a very intelligent personage, and posses.-ed of great kindliness and urbanity

of manner. His intention is to remain in this country about a year, and to observe the customs and habits ol the people. He wore his beard, whioh was coal black, at great length; and " by the beard of the Prophet," we never saw a finer one. ?At half past twelve we reached this village, were received with peals of artillery and deafening cheers? foimed in procession under our sergeant at arms, Beij Stevens, Esq , stcumdem di&nitattm, and walked to the Town Hall, waited about half an hour; and then at the suggestion of Josiah Quincy, Ksq , President or the Massachusetts Senate, and e.r officio president of the meeting, chosen Committee of five, Speaker Walley of Koxbury, Hale of Bridgewater, Allrn of Northfield, and Senators Sprague and Hooper to wait upon the New York dignitaries and coaduct them to the hall. Presently they appeared, Governor Seward in the van ; President Quincy officiated as master of ceremonies, and introduced the great men to each oiher. Gov. Davis bowed to Gov Seward?Gov. Sewaid cottoned to Gov. Davis, Ate. Slc. (Nice cheers ) Gov. Davis opened the ball?bade (hem all a heirty and cordial welcome?and then adverted '.o the wonderful properties and results of steam, its diminishing time and space, overcoming all obstacles and barriers, imparting its life giving energies to the remotest corners of the earth, to Turkey, Egypt, Asyria, et cetera. Spoke of what New York had done?the mighty genius of Fulton? the commercial importance of this stupendous agent?disclaimed for the citizens of the Bay State any thing like jealousy of or prejudice towards New York in this connexion, notwithstanding the efforts of the pressto foster sectional feelings and selfish interests, and then closed with a reiterated j welcome of New York and its government to the olJ Bay State?to nil which ine assemblage responded with nine more cheers. Gov. Sewaid replied in behalf of the State aad government of New York ; expressed his sincere thanks for their hospitable, generous, and fraternsd welcome; and then, by a most unhappy faux pa*, considering the peculiar relations of parties there represented, indulged in a most fulsome encomium of Gov. Davis and the general course of policy pursued by him and bis party. Afier this,he re marked that beyond all Gov. Davis's great aeivicea and honors, was the high and distinguished honor of presiding over this meeting ot the two first States of the Union, through their official representatives. Although there might be a difference of paliey and viewa, yet his aaioeiates in a.Tice were all agieed in the propriety of ncceptingthis invitation. He spake of the primitive character uf the people of Massachusetts, their intelligence, their schools and rcboolmasteis, the debt that New York owed to the latter for instruction, and than indulged in | some patriotic reminisccucea connected with the father* af tha revolution, adverted to Lexington, Concord and Bunker Hill, to the Rock of Ply. mouth, the value of the Union, to internal impravements as being so many hooka upon which wa could hang as eoafadarated Suui, ao assay link* in the great chain ot mntuul interests, wnich was to eoaI nect the most distant point* of the country in in OlSSOlUDie annas- Alter iuiui umvian IIIUI1UH in this connexion to Adams, flaneock, Franklin, Warren, Fulton and Clinton, and considerable poetry in relation to this meeting of peace and harmony between New York and Massachusetts, unlike the scenes of knight errantry, wi h its jonsts and tournaments, its splendid heraldic parades and gorgeous armor, its cloth of gold and imposing blazonry? all which was somewhat far fetched and inappropriate, and came near breaking the wind of your somewhat rerbose and windy Governor? he closed with " great pomp and circumstance," amidst another round of nine cheers. Mr- Quiney then pleasantly remarked that this was a high Court of Errors, when four branches i f the respective Legislatures had met in convention, and he ruled as a point of order that he, the Presi dent of the Senate, bad a right to preside, and he would announce by virtue of his high offioe, that there were certain matters on the table in the room below that r? quired discussion. The question was (put, and we repaired to the seene ot operations, where we found a fine baod "discoursing moat excellent music,"' and viands of every variety served up after the moat approved fashion Grace was aaid by the Rev Mr. Peabody of Springfield, whose affected and whining tonea and lachrymose and vinegar looking countenance, came near soaring the excellent diahea prepared for the occasion. The toasts, notwithatanding aeveral hin-.s from the chairman, were obliged to be drank in cold water, and were prefaced with abort but pertinent apeecbee.

Shawmut. Hocneiur. [Correspondence of the Herald.] Politics in Kocluster? Triumph of the Ijocofocos. Kociieiteh, March 5,1842. Ma. Bethett : Oar Charter Election is over, and the Whigs hare met with an overwhelming defeat. To the great joy ef the Locos, whoee most sanguine expectations have been mere than realised. Hitherto the smallest favors have been meat thankfully received by them ; for so bountiful a godsend they can hardly find language to express their joy. The willing gratulations of the whole party arc thickly clustering round the devoted head of our newly-appointed Postmaster, to whom they concede all the honor ofth?ir most signal triumph. The sachems of the party have under consideration the propriety of acknowledging their obligations to him by some public demonstration, such as a dinner or a procession, tor the disinterested and patristic services whichfthey are aware no other man but him upon the earth could have rendered them. While they are overflowing with gratitude^to bim, tbey sbould not loruet our Albany friend*, who I have taken the local intereit ot the people into their own keeping, furnishing to hand candidate* for every office, either state or national, being infallible in their own estim.tion, and much better able to judge of what is for the good of the people, than the people are themselves. The baneful effects of this meddling with private matters is not confined to this city, where tne Loos have carried every ward by iari>e majorities, and cctcd their mayor by near 303 majority, which is about the nsnal Whig majority; but it has extended to the county, where (hey have eleeted a majority of the supervisors for the first time in an age, and its influence will be felt throughout the State. VVe do not blame the President Jas, we are aware, he has been deceived by unfair and false representations, coming from individuals fiom abroad, acting, as we suppose, in concert with a little clique in this tity, who have monopolised every appointment coming from abroad for the last few years, to the great dissatisfaction of the people, whose confidence they have not possessed a long time, and who, if engaged in this matter, have not the boldness to acknowledge it, but leave the whole responsibility to rest on tbe wire workers in Albany and elsewhere. It appear* since the reeult of the election became known last fall, that efforts have been secretly made to eoavince the powers at Washington, that it would not do to appoint any of the eandidatea thnt had applied for the office of postmaster in this city, as the friends ef the ether candidates would rise up in opposition, and it would break up the party. This paved the way for bringing forward Mr. Andrews, whose appointment was urged upon the ground that be was about to suffer martyrdom for opinion's sake, at the hands of the loco foco ? ? ?r ?hi. --J .L., !? u :j? ... ii wumu iovduij the President with the whig party more effectually than any other move that he could make, to appoint him to that place. These were plausible arguments, and calculated to commend Mr. Andrews to the favorable consideration of the President, to whom, it is said, it was represented, to induce him to remove Mr. O'Riley, among other things, that he had been interfering in obtaining the removal of Mr. Andrews from the clerkship of the Senate. These movements were kept a secret, and the appointment hurried through is hot haste; seme tearing that if it was made known, n remonstrance would defeat him?which was too trae, for if sn opportunity had been offered the people of Rochester, they would have convinced the President that he had been deceived, and that in this intended act of kindness, he was inflicting the unkindest cut of all. When it was found that a whig administration had the post offices to dispose of, it was universally conceded that one of two or three candidates wke applied for it was entitled to it, the appointment of any one of whom would have given little or nodis* satisfaction. To one of these candidates Mr. Andrews professed himself partieu.arly iriendly, volunteering his services to aid him by letter, and otherwise, to obtain the appointment, up to the time he obtained it for him<elf, and when advised that his name was up for the place, he disclaimed all knowledge of any movement having been made with the view of obtaining the appointment for himself, and claimed that he had requested his name to be withdrawn?instead of wnich it appears he has been using every means in his powtr to secure the appointment. After the proceeding* of the meeting which was held here, at which the major presided, reached Albanj, and apon the day it wa* known there that his appointment was confirmed, some one wrote the following letter to a friend in this city wishing to obtain from him a disclaimer of that meeting before the appointment reached Rochester, which is the best comment that can be made npon the matter :? Jan. 23, 1643. Col. : Are yen crazy 7 That meeting 1 fear will kill you dead ; I believe it was got up for that object, ss 1 see th* persons connected with it aie triends ol the other candidates. I fear you cannot make it believed it was not year meeting, and if the President thinks so he will spjoint some of the other candidates. The strong ones believe it . will cheat you. When you thought I would, you ought to diaclaim the meeting. P. 8. , I understand, has been trying to manage the Post office all this time ef his abstnee. You ought not to connect yourself with such men. There may be honor among some men, but the foregoing clearly demonstrates an earlier absence of it amongst some who c!airn to be honorable. Respectfully yours, B. T. U.S. District Court. Before Judge Betta. March 6?About 650 petitions for bankruptcy have thus far been presented in this district?with a single exception, all of tbem voluntary. The application for compelling a bankruptcy has nor yat been matured. It was a motion on ihe part of Mr J. Prescott Hall, relative to a bouse which bad filed about a week previously. The courtroom is.crowded every morning by persons anxious to witness proceedings, and, in some instances, even the gallery has to be thrown open for the admission of ihe audience. We gave, yesterday, a list of the petitions presented on Saturday, with some remarks of Ihe Court. To day the question is to Ice argued in reiaiion io the rights ef iorelgn creditors. Ihe Court on Saturday also gave its views in relation to objections on the petitions of Robert Malcolm and Hwgh il'FarUn, argued before it the precediug day. The objections in the first case were, that there had bees erasures and interlineations in the petition, which were eontiary to the statute. Also, that tha family stores and wealing apparel were not stated sufficiently explicit. The Court observed that the name had bees writtsa at firat Robt. hut marked out and placed in fall afterwards, so as to coaform witk the law. 1 his was the only erasure. The interlineatioa was also very iiiijhi, btiif, ui?r mciiu ?i he reside*, " above Mtinii," also the word* me" ' and " ha* aot," added. " The** are litt.'o poiatr," Judge H. remarked.

Washington. ~ fCorroopoadcnce ol the H?r*ld.l Warhirotow, March 5, 1*12 Ilouae of Representatives. The House this day reversed the decision of Thursday last' by which the hosr of meeting was changed from twelve to eleven o'clock, or rather poatpontd the change until the firti of April. Thai day stands conspicuous in the calendar, but there have been many firsts of April of late, to the cost of the people of the United States, or the conduct of their Representatives does not speak an intelligible language. Hear Mr. Fillmore in his pleadings for an earlier daily meeting:? Communications had been received from the War Department stating that the fnads of the Quartermaster had been exhausted, and that appropriations were required immediately. From the Navy Department also, intelligence came that the appropriations were exhausted, and one vessel, which had been ordered to sai1, waa actually detained in port for want of necessities. The House had been three months in session, they had passed but one general appropriation bill, and had business on the table prepared for them by the oammitteee, sufficient to occupy them until August. The House 'had not disposed of one-fifth part of the appropriation'bill which they'had had under consideration,and the debate had taken such a turn as would cannr them to Julv unless it was arT*it*H. There was in addition an immeis: amount of private business, of which some disposition must be made befsre Congress could adjourn. So n.uch for the necessity for action' Now for the business qualitiei of the I House. Mr. Barsakd asked his colleague if he supposed that by meeting, ai hour earlier, an hour would be added to the meeting of the House. His own experience hid taught him to indulge in no such expectation. Change the hour of meeting, and as surely t ley would change the hour of adjournment. The change, then, wiihout producing any good, would break in upon the time which the committee occupied in the committee room. He then urged, that, to effect a reform, they must remove tho desks and bring the members close together; and this proposition has much reason to support it. Give the members no desk) on which to carry on the private correspondence ? give them nothing to occupy their attention hut the subject under consideration, and they will not then hear more in debate than issuflicient to make it intelligible; no orations for Buntombe?no personal displays to gratify an inordinate vanity ?but they will legislate without schoolboy prattle, and go home to the pro. fit of themselves and their constituents. The next subject matter of debate was the report of the Retrenchment Committee, and on the resolution prescribing the mode of supplying stationery^ the House has been and Btill remains stationary* Some idea may be formed of the extravagance which has been practised in this article, from the statement that the average supply, of late sessions, gives to each member twenty-four reams of paper? nearly a ream per week !!?for his own use, besides 292 reams for the use of the clerk's office and committee rooms. In addition to tkis, there had been supplied 106 dozen knives and steel pens, and quills in proportion, and 9448 expended for making pensA wide range was taken in the debate, and the political parties both admitted lhat they had used " wrapping" paper in the folding room, dnring the late Presidential contest, for the distribution of political pamphlets, to the number oi 3,000,000; and this therefore may account for some inordinate expenditures. The House had not disposed of the committee's report when the adjournment took place. In the Supreme Court to-day, the celebrated Gaines' case was allowed to go over until the next term, when n decision may be expected. ? HllMBSS. (Correspondence of the Herald.) Baltimore, Marsh 6,1842. Hopes Brtglutting for Resumption?Railroad Orders ?Court Martial?Excitement Subsiding?1\e IVtaUier? Bankrupts, $-e, Mr- Editor :? It would seem that something definite is yet to be accomplished in reference to resumption. Another bill to provide for specie payments was reported to the Legislature yesterday by the Committee of Con ierence to whom the subject was referred. Ihe bill provide* for a resumption of specie payments by the banks af this State on the first of May next; to allow said banks to issue until the first day of January, 1S43, notes of less denomination than five dollars to an amount equal to a fifth of their several capitals; also to provide foi proceedings by scire.facias in case if continued on any future suspension. Strong hopes are entertained that this bill will pass. Railroad Orders were 15 per cent better yesterday ? owing to an act passed the City Council for the fund* ing of 9500,000 of them at 75 cents in the dollar. It is a good and safe investment. The Naval Court Marii>1 met yesterday andladjourned until Monday without transacting any business.
