NEW YORK HERALD. *W York, Tnrtrtajr, March H, lb4tt. To Medical Advertiser*. The Istrutt now presents the belt medium of addressing the medical profession. Its circulation it nearly three thousand copies weekly, and extendi to every section of the Union. Publishers of medical works, surgical in trument makers, dentists, ks., cannot find a more desirable and useful vehicle for their announcements than tbia popular periodical. Druggists iu tlia city cannot in I ny other way so etfectively address country apothecaries, a great number of whom are practitioners, and utxcribers to the Lam el. To physicians themselves, who wish to disjDse of their practice, procure assistants, or form partnerships, the Lancet affords unequalled opportunities of cxten-ively communicating with their professional brethren. To professional young men desirous of obtaining situations, the same facilities are ctfeied. The various medical ahools and colleges throughout the Union?conductors cf private hospitals and infirmaries, hi:, should also avail themselves of the advantages thus presented. The Laneel nnw circulates in every considerable city and village throughout the Union. Aotbstisiko Tismss?One square, one insertion, $1 M; Each additional inseition, $1; per annum, <16.

Border?An addition to our Difflcnltlti with England.?Arrest of one oft be Caroline gHiig. The whole city was yesterday thrown again into a high state of excitt mtut, liy the arrival of the following important puce of intelligence from Lockport. The Loekporl Democrat ol the 21 instant, states that "a mm named Hogan was arrested and brought I) -fore Mr. Leonard, Justice of the village, yesterday, on the charge of participating iu the burning of the Caroline. The examination was not concluded *wrhen our paper went to press " In addition, we have been permitted to peruse a private letter to a Canadian exile in this city, of *hp a imp rliifp from nrhiph fhp fnllnu'inrr id ail ex. ,v " fc ? ^jact :? "John Sheridan Hogan, one of the Caroline iuvaders, about whom there can be no mistake, has b?en arrested, and will doubtless be committed to t ike his trial (or the part he took in the Schlosser murders. I am told he is clerk to the Sheriff of the CJore District, who was M'Nab's Lieutenant Colonel, opposite Navy Island, and that he was formerly in M'Nab's law office, ahd acted as his secretary while at Chippewa, in 1834. He is a good-looking, bold, manly little fellow?tory and game to the back bone " This will revive the whole question involved in the celebrated M'Leod case. A mote important movement has not taken place for some time. Hogan is one who, we are told, freely admits his connexion with the Caroline outrage,andjthrowshimself on the protection of the British Government. We learn that Mr- Hogan is a native of Ireland? that he was recently in this city, and stopt several days at the National Hotel, where he expressed some fears lest he should be arrested and detained?and that his companion was Mr. John William Aikman, a son of Michael Aikman, a tory member of the late U. C. Parliament. We are further informed that even Sir Allan McNab actually passed through this State lately,and has left for London by way of Boston! Jf this be true, and at present we see no reason whatever to doubt it, our relations with England will look very squally indeed ; and it w ill require a little more tact and talent than even Lord Ashburton possesses, to cause the horizon to look any clearer in that quarter. In addition to the above, we learn veibally by a gentleman from that plaee, that the excitement at jjocrpon was iruiy iremenauus. a committee 01 safety had been f formed, and resolutions had been passed, to the effect, that if it can be proved that liogan was really ene of the gang that burnt the Caroline, and that the general government should interfere for the purpose of taking him out of the hands of the State authorities, that Ilogan should forthwith be taken forcibly from j til, as the mob 1 took Captain Porieus at Edinburgh, and that like Porteus he should be hung without loss cf time or benefit of clergy. We aleo learn, that on the announcement that McNab had passed through Lockport, over one hundred of the citizens turned out, mounted horses, and put out on the road to Albany, with the hopes of overtaking hm. All this looks very ominous, but we do not see how it can be very well helped. We might waste a great many words in the way of advice, but all to no purpose; and the only suggestions that are worth not Vng just now, ere, for e very one to keep perfectJy cool, and say as little about this subject as possi. He, until it is first ascertained whether this Irishman named Ilogan was really one of the gang that burnt the Caroline or not. We are very much inclined to think, il he has been bragging about burning the Caroline, that he had nothing to do with the matter. We should look very foolish,after wastiug a wonderiul deal of wisdom, in the shape of advice and law questions, and months of time in preparing for, and trying the man, to that after all, like McLeod, he never was there. Let us first of all, as David Crsckett said, be sure we've got ihe right man, and then it will be time enough to go ahead. Tnr. Wmo Ward meetings last night were much better attended than usual; and every thing went off with much spirit and energy. If the locsfocos don't look out, ihey will lose the city this spring. Important Movement* In tlie Common Council L?a*t .N'lg'ct Py reference to our regular report of the proceedings of the Cotnmou Council lai-t night, it will be seen that some very important movements took place in that body during the evening In the first place, a report was presented recommending the election of Public School Commissioners ; this was|ordered to be printed by an unanimous vote. The nent movement was a re-modelling of the wards, and altering their boundaries, in order to equalis; the representation in each board. This created a fierce debate. Lastly, came the appointment of Inspectors of Election, in accordance with the Registry Repeal Law ltut as soon as Inspectors for two wards were appointed, the Joint Ballot was broken up in almost a row, by the whig members leaving the meeting without a quorum.

AiNi M * m 1 / Claims an Mexico Letters from Washington state that the proceedings under the treaty with Mexico in regard to these claims, in which some of our citiaens are largely interested, have been brought to a premature termination by the extraordinary refusal of the umpire, who is the 1'iu-kian Minister, to act upon a number ol the oases submitted to htm. The claimaute were authorised to present their claims to a board of commissioners up to Friday last, and in cases of disagre. ment they were to be referred to the umpire. No limitation of t:me was placed upau his action, and it necessarily extended beyond that assigned to the board, because all their decisions (which might be made as late as the 25.h inst ) were liable to be referred to him. Owing to the difficulties of procuring testimony, and especially the obstacles thrown in the way by the Mexicans, it was not to be doubted that many of the cases, without any fault of the claimants, could not be acted upon by the board until the close of their session ; nor did the umpire give any notice that he would limit his decisions to cases sent before a particular day. Yet notwithstanding all this, it appears that, arbitrarily, and in violation of his duty as clearly prescribed by the treaty, and actuated only by his own personal convenience, he has refused to decide a number of cases regularly submitted to him by the board. The impropriety ot this proceeding is aggravated by the fact that some of the rejected cases are known to be of a character in ihe highest degree meritorious, and in which the parties have been for years wailing redrets. The umpire, as the treaty shows, is paid a large salary, partly by the United States, (or transacting the busiuess which he thus unjustly refuses to perform. It docs appear to us, that if the facts are such as we understand them to be, the executive government ought to interpose and have justice done to our citizen*, by seeing that a functionary who voluntarily accepts a trust under a treaty, and receives a large compensation for so doing, should not wantonly neglect or deviate from it to the injury of those who have unfortnnately been led to confide in him. We hope that the interest of our citizens will be fully guarded by the g vernment, snd that justice will be done to them at once: they have been waiting long enough for what is due to them. Review of Book*, Ac Visits to Remarkable Places ?-By William Howiit, second series ?Carry ij- Hart, Philadelphia. ?A splendid edition of a most interesting work.? The portions of " Merrie England" visited by oar author are rich in scenery and legend?in poetry and manners?in history and historic sites. Northumberland and Du; ham? with all their border fame?with their battles and their ballads?are the very strong hold and native ground of English popular poetry and romance. The Douglas and the Percy?Chevychase and Otterburne?are names which not only stirred the heart of Sir Philip Sidney, hut are charmed sounds in the ears of all who have a soul for heroic deedo and the age *f chivalrous daring. The stories and th* scenery of these interesting portions of old England, are here presented with all the chaiactemtic vigor and distinctness of our author. Psychology or Ei.f.mentr of a New Mental Philosophy?By S S. Sehmucker, D- D.?Harpers Brothers ?Dr. Schonncktr says he devoted ten years to ihe study of his own mind. The result ?f this profitable labor is this little volume. We have not had time to examine the book so attentively as to discover the new doctrines of the author, but we observe that he has coined some new words, and attempted the improvements of some old fashioned ones. Dr. S's motives in writing, as expressed in the preface, have been commendable, but we are rather inclined to think that his treatise will not supersede those of Stewart, Reid, Brown tte Co.

Extraordinary Excitement ?Sheriff** Po?e and Militia ordered out to Preeerve the Peace. J. G Benhett, E.-q ? A* you are always on Ibe qui vire for the earliest intelligence, we hare to eommuncate the follnwiog from this rery quiet add pe:n cful village at ours In the early part ol Sept>mber last, the Rev Patr ck Custello, Catholic priest o( this place, was privately married to a Miss Mary Ann Jeffrey, a pupil of his at the 'ime in the languages,and daughter of a very highly re-peeled citizen of L ck port. u was Kfpi a lectn until iviinin a rno,i nine nine*, wht-n she found herself ia the situation "that ladies with to be who lore their lords and showin? her keeping, it was deemed prudent, in order to amid scandal, to irmore her front this place. Accordingly her father accompanied her on Tuesday last to Roches er, and returned t? this place on Thursday evening following without bit daughter. What had been before mere conjectuie among our peaceable inhibitanti, now assumed the reality ; and it was rumored about the village with a whirlwind fury, until at length the priest's liege subjects and parishioners kotch'd the fever too. (Tiiere are shout eight hundred of them at this time engaged upon the public works here.) Many of them called upon priest Castello. He at first denied the charge ; hut ai length, as their calls upon him grew thicker and fasier and warmer, in order to save the character and reputation of the lady,he admitted the fact. On Friday morning some two or three hundred of his parishioners surrounded his dwell,ng and demanded the property in his possession belonging to the church, including some two or three thousand dollars iu coin, which he claimed as hi* own property, and hal previously sent it to the bank, for safety. Tb - .Sheriff and po^se were out, and took possession of pricit Castello and hit dwelling, locking In in in his own house, and admitting none but bis counsel to see him. At 9 o'clock on Friday morning, the time at which our informant left for the east, the excitement was on the inereate, and the militia s ere about to be ordeied out to dispel the mob and preserve the peace of the village. tyutrr?Who married them 1 We know wko married Captain Sehinley.

The names of the Grand Jurors ware then called, and the following gentlemen appeared and were sworn:?Thomas Tiliston,foreman, Walter Barnes, Peter Crawford, John C- Coachman, William S. Conley, Ebeuezer R Dupignac.Terrence Donnelly, William Fardon, Ama.-a S. Foster, William Foley, George Fickelt, Thomas J. Gildorsleeve, Archibald Hnbbard, Zeuas Hyde, Samuel N. Jadab, Aaron O King, Drake Mills, George S Mann, Rsbert C. Smith, and AdnaH Underbill?total20 The Recorder then proceeded to charge the Grand Jury. After alluding to the particular violations of law required to be presented to their no tice by the statute, he pointed out the evils attendant upon the discharge of prisoners from our State prisens under the present course pursued.? That they were left with no means of support, with a stain upon their reputation, without friends, without money, and without employment, the result of which was an inducement to again commence a career of crime, that suoner or later sent them back to fill the place they had recently left. He stated that there were frcm 1500 to 1000 convicts confined in the States prisons of this Stats during the year, four or five hundred of which were annually discharged. That the receipts from their labor amounted during the past year to $64,865 45, while tha expenses were only about $45,000, thus leaving a surplus of over $19,000. He therefore recommended the Grand Jurors to make annlieatinn to the legislature for a law authorising the payment to each prisoner when discharged of the sum of $50, which would enable them to support themselves until employment could be obtained. He then alluded to the great increase of pauperism in the city, and stated that it was more than in proportion to the increase of population. The number of paupers in tha State, he observed, waa 66,5(11, while during the past yeAr 27,587 were supported by this city alone, being nearly half of the whole number in the State! lie then urged the necessity of employing these paupers in some manner that would tend to yield something towards their soppart. That such was the practice in a number of other States, the effect of which was materially to reduce the increase of pauperism wherever each a course had been adopted. He alluded particularly to those paupers confined at the Bellevue Hospital, they being supplied with food and clothing at the public expense without contributing by their labor to relieve the city from the enormous tax levied upon the public Afttr the charge of the Reeerder and the calling of the uames of the petit jurors, 33 of whom answered. George Grifeex, Esq. one oP the counsel for Amory 5c Leeds, moved that the Court proceed to the trial of his clients, as partially agreed upon at the past term, when the previous jury were discharged Charles O'Coxitoh, Esq the associate counsel of Mr Griffen, stated that his clients were desirous of having the case tried as soon as the court could select the tine for that purpose. The Court stated that owing to the crowded stato of our prisons it would be i-npoisible to select any period sooner than the third week of the term which was set down as the neriod. It has been generally supposed aincc the termination ol the trial at tbe last term, that the Couit or the District Atterney would enter a nolle prosin this case, and thus prevent the public from being taxed with the expenses of a suit that should be brought in a civil court, where the prosecutors would be compelled to pay their own expenses in the eollec ion of thoir debts. The first case call*J was n trial for grand larceny, in which a young man rery genteely dressed, named William lluskius, was placed in the box on an alleged charged of stealing a dress coat, relret rest, morocea portfolio, case c f lancets and n cotton shirt, valued at $45 from the room of James P M. D iTis, medical student, who boarded at No 16 Amity street, on the 24th of Februaiy last Ann Larhm, a eerrant girl who resided with the family, stated that Hoakius came to the house on the morning of the 24th, and inquired for Mr. Outlaw, who occupied the same room with Mr. Davis. He was infr rmed that he was not at home. He then went to the room, saying he wonld wait until he came in, but soon after left the premises without being seen by any of the inmates. The clothes were missed the same evening, and search being made, tbey were found in the trunk of Hoekin*, in his room at the Howard House. Tbe name of Hoskins was on the inside of the collar of the coat at the time it was tound in his trunk The prisoner was defended by Cslvin Pepper, Esq., who evinced much tact and ingenuity in the defeuce,and succeeded in obtaining a verdict o( petit larceny only Trial for Hurglary ?A hard looking case, named .Tnhn Mnrrnw alias Murrav. nm mil ? il>" I-- '? be tried for burglary in entering tlie house of Saml Smith.

March 7.?Several interesting points in relation to Bankrupt affairs, were presented to the notice of the Court, decisions on which will probably be given this forenoon. In the case of Cat sandra Frisbee, which had been argued by Messrs. Joachinseen and Stewart, the Court stated that the objections had been founded on a ant of clearness in describing his aseets. The f>etition stated that he held an interest in a let of aad at Buffalo, but did not describe in what part of the towa it lay, but that he intended giving up the deed to the assignee?it also states that he is possessed of certain furniture, aaoounting in value to about $200.

It is no excuse to say they are af aid of stating siyh, lest an execution creditor will stize them to the exclutionof ether ercditers. If the Court cannot protect them, it is no affair of theirs, the law mutt be complied with. On these grounds, the decree is refused. The counsel asked leare to amend without going over the forma of advertising again, but the Court replied it was not certain that u bad the power to grant such. The motion was allowed, and n decision is to be given ibis forenoon. The objections to the petition of Moffatt, presents similur grounds as to furniture. He states himself as having some, but does not express where it is to be leund- There are also objections to the the cieditors not being all mentioned, nor their localities accurately described. The court did not think these objections valid. The petitioner swears to the schedule of debts being correct to the best of his knowledge and belief, and creditors mutt show apparent design in omissions to stay the decree. At to residence of creditors, it is sufficient to state, that they live in a Ctriaia City or town, without designating the particular house or ih>> street. Mr. Sblder asked if he could withdraw all the papers in the case, but was replied to in the negative, the court considering that ihe files could not be disturbed. The petitioner bad made out his own papers. Oj account of omission in stating where the furniture waa, decree withbeld In the case of Thomas D. Lee, exceptions had been taken by his counsel to the authority of the court in examining him before a commissioner previous to the decree being allowed. Judge llelts stated that the second clause of the first section of the law declared the parties to be bankrupt, ami ubjeet to the order* of the court, on the petition being filed In the seventh section the form* are prescribed, and the court, furthermore, ia invested with chancery power*, and the petitioner ia bound to undergo an exsmination before a commiteioner when ordered. The creditor has a right to go folly into the aubject, and to cut him oil from the decree if he can. Or. Lee also presented hia account book as past of hi* assets, which the court stated wcu'd not answer. The motion was denied, and the petition withdrawn.

It was crowded to excess?but the roost elegant of mobs!? beauty, grace, intelligence jostling one another,? wisdom treading upon the toes of loveliness, ard Clay whigs, and Van Buren locofocos, and Tyler Americans, so involuntarily waltzed aroand in the whirling of the throng, that every now and then they seemed to forget their identity, and each to mistake himself for tha other. There was some little mirth created by a new arrangement?the announcement of each visitor's name on entering; and in such a throng, of course, mistakes wets likely enough to happen, as they did. Many a gen? t'eman found himself suddenly dignified with the handle to his name, of " Honorable,"?a foreign Minister or two waa transferred from hia own court to another, and maidens and bachelors who had imagined themselves safe in their single blessedness, found themselves on the sudden most unexpectedly coupled, and given to each other without the con lent of either being asked. And many, indeed, were ihere in that brilliant multitude, for whom any bachelor, however wrapt up in egotism, would have delighted to prove that ' true aelf-love and social are the same." What say you, Benedict? Could you look en that laughing girl in black, of seventeen?she wills a profusion of lair hair, and not mourn that she and you should both be singlet If you can never be her governor. I think you would willingly Barren* der that poini, provided she would become yours. Those sweet girls with our sweetest poet's nanje, the Misses of Alexandria, would not their grace and genius shake any believer in matrimony? Or that little Hebe?she with the joyous round fnl{ face, in such good company? Or the remaining Miss who, though the last of the family in that category, is certainly aot the least in any connoisseur's dear love? " Come, come," says a friend who has been look* nig in another direction, " I grant you that there area nvottu crirla pnmtah hprA wKn KbvA nPVPP ,v f,Vi,7 ? ** .... ? - ? married; but there is no small sprinkling of widow*, :oo, and they ought to come in for their share of admiration." And onr friend was right; tor turning, we beheld i widow equally bright in complexion and expression, and caught ourstlvesexclaiming? " Have not saint's lips aurt holy pal men too?" When a hue looking form swept by with General Ward?a lady tastefully attired and attracting universal attention and admiration, but ere we could learn who she was, "Yes," cried some one, "she flourishes in immortal youth. She looks almost as well now as she lid when she first bore the name of Bonaparte." So it was through our celebrated countryman that we lost sight of the mysterious stranger. " There were married ladies here, wnlking about with the husbands of other married ladies,and not a "ew of them who seem to attract as much attention is the single ones. " And where will yon see a lady, marriied or single, more attractive than little Mrs. T******* jy ?*??# i" " Or of a more lady like presence than her mothtrn-law 1" " Mrs. D*?****'s appearance, to-night, is more at:ractive than usual?" " If pcssible, you should have added." " How every one turna and gazes with delight at Mrs. \** " She with the late ambassador, her husband V " The same." " A fascinating specimen!of Spain." " do you see that girl with uie run, dui nae figure, and the fair English complexion 1" Who is ehel" " 1 do not kaow ; but if those who tub for admiration, could do it with bait* like this, they would have no reason to quote the 5th chapter of tha 6th verse of St. Luke." Bat anecdotes like this might be continued till ihey would leave no room for the mention of another most interesting occurrence at the President's on (yesterday) Friday, the 4th of March'. With that delicate tact, that quiet propriety which is so striking a characteristic of our chief magistrate, the anniversary of his first official introduction to Washington in the stepping-stone place to that which he now graces, was marked at the Whita House, and though unostentatiously and silently, with peculiar appropriateness. There was an elegant dinnerparty, at which, brsideB all the members of the cabinet and their " partners in weal and woe," and a selection of other ladies and gentlemen; Ex-President Adams and the nearest connec" tions of two other Ex-Presidents were present, and one or two of the foreign Ambassadors. Thers were, for instance, Mrs. Madison and the daughter of Ex-President Monroe, Mrs. Gouvernear. Mr. Bodisco and his American wife were among the guests. It was remarked that Mr. Tyler, who can so readi ly accommodate himself to visiters of a plainer character, deported himself on this occasion with a simple elegance which made it seem as though he never could have lived out of lbs precincts of the meet polished court. He proved his conscientinutnen of that truth so little regarded in our commerce with society, that homely manners towards the moat polished guests, are as embarrassing as the most polished manners towards guests who are more homely. Every one was at ease, and quite as much so as an entirely different style, but dictated by the same good taste, rendered the blunt and honest farmer of Wilmington, (Delaware,) whose beef and mutton I chronicled the oth*r day, with as much pleas-ure as any one partook of them. Perhaps my next goreip letter will record the progress this way of Bnz It is not intended in this region, I believe, to commit any rematkable folly upon this gentleman's arrival?there is enough, in that line, always going on here of itself, without seeking temptations to it from abroad. It has been wisely proposed to make his reception a plain one; to talk to him as little as possible about himself, as being the only writer that ever made an imperishable book, and 10 talk to him still less of oarselves, as being the greatest people in the world. He will be received affectionately, and the distinction will be to receive him not as a stranger, and with a parade equally inappropriate to his past career and his present purposes, but as one who haa earned for himself a welcome to every heart and home, and whom we honor, not with huzzas and trumpets, as though he were a war tor, entering in triumph from a victory, but as a philanthropist looking to better and purer glories, and towards whom every nne who loves the best interests of hw kind warraa as towards a brother.
