NEW YORK HERALD. Snnriay, Marsh IS, IMS. Steam Ship Clyde. This steamer will start to day at twelve 'clack, tor Charleston, Savannah, Havana, &?. Letier bags for England go by her. (Icy- A* tha Clyde did not arrive till 1 o'clock yevterday morning, and as our very large edition compels as to ga to press soon after midnight, many of our subscribers yesterday received in their paper the tnera announcement of the sate arrival of the Caledonia hoine, and the Acadia out. In our second edition of tho "Drily Herald," we could give but two columns of the newa, including the markets and tlie decision in ihe Creole case. Ia the " Weekly Herald" we gave an entire page of the newa. Under a I the circumstances we deem it best to republish on the out^i le of this day's paper, the whole of the important foreign news published tn the Weekly, as received by the Clyde, together with many additional iutetestiug items. The Foreign Haws. Notr.iug could exceed the delight af the people ot this city, on hearing yesterday morning that the Caledonia was safe. The whole city was in a state of joyous excitement, and every one appeared pleased and happy. The newa brought by the Acadia is calculated to deprese trade and commerce in every reaped. The horrible state of trade in England?the political and revolutionary rxcnemeni an over mai coumry; ana above all, the indolent and haughty tone of the British ministers in relation to the Creole case, mud satisfy every one that there ure '* breakers ahead " It is evident, that the government of Great Britam, seeing from the firmness of this country, that there must be trouble of soine kind, is afraid to tneet us on the Boundary Question ; and, therefore, endeavors to have all the difficulties, and (if it must come) war at last, urise out of the S'ave Trade; because she thinks that on the latter subject this country is divided. Should she, however, drive us to extremities, her government will find that it has reckoned this time without its host. As we were the first to forward Lord Aberdeen's decision in the Creole case, to Washington, wc shall wait and see the effect of that news upon Con gress- In the ni?an time, we call attention to the following article on this subject from the " London Times," which smbedies the views of the government, and nearly all the British press on the subject!? [From the London Time*.] England and America. We have always been perfectly aware that in moat quarrels there are some right and some wrong on both aides of the question, much honest misunderstanding, and wholly unconscious prejudice. Indeed. we arc never astonished to find the same view of facts assumed iu the most frank and undoubting way by one party as an axiomatic truth beyond the I reach of question or argument?by the ether as a palpable and known absurdity. And, accordingly, as such prejudices undoubtedly exist, and as it is very difficult for any man to judge accurately how far tie is himself under their dominion, we are apt, in our candor, very much to distrust our own first impressions cf our adversaries' arguments or opinions. Things do look very diffident from opposite points of view; and, therefore, aa we have be'ore observed, we are much iacliued to suspend our judgment for some short time, when we find ourselves in unexpected collision withany incomprehensibly startling statement of an adversary's opinion. One rather hesitates to prouounce that palpably absurd which men, enjoying the reputation not only of canity but intelligence, renounce with the inost perfect apparent confidence in their opinions. Never did this difficulty of our* cause us greater perplexity then in reading certain opinions delivered kn Jiimvo m*>tnl\i*pa Af jilt* A msPinan Pavi.irene nn the affair of the brig Creole, a matter op which we iitad-- aome obnervutions in our paper of Friday last. We were unwilling to suppose the speakers in Congress to be under any actual privation of reason, yet ft seemed inevitable that either they or ourselves were labsring under the most strange and eutire hallucination on principles, considered by both mast obvious,of natural and political equity. We ran over the grounds of our own conclusions, and found nothing to repent of; and so can only beg again the candid judgment of our readers on the startling opinions which we have fallen upon. The Creole, it will be remembered, was carrying slaves from Richmond to New Otleans; some of them mutinied, murdered u passenger, seised the ship, and ran i< into an English harbor. The English governor examined the case, seized all the slaves whom the passengers could identify bb concerned ia the murder aud piracy, but professed his inability to interfere with the movements of the rest, who accordingly landed, and most of them s arted forthwith for Jamaica. On this state of things two points arise between ourselves aud America. First, what is to beoome of the negroes who are so detained 1 The American consul claimed that they should be sent to the United States, which, for the moment, was reiiiM-d : and thev remain aa vet in British csttodr. On this point we expressed no opinion But farther, not only the American newspapers, but men of consideration, speaking in Congress, proceed to demand compensation foi the slaves who have taken themselves ofTto Jamaica or elsewhere. The first point ia not very easily disposed of Se-1 ?eral unsettled questions are involved- These alaves are cousideted to have committed what is certainly by the municipal law of America and Bnglanri an act of piracy?a murder on the high seas. But is it. with the attendant seizure of their vessel, within the definition of piracy, as given by the law ol nations! If it be, it is cognuable in any country in which the pirates nsay thereafter find themselves; it is a crime against uations, punishable by any ; and in tbat case onr government, intp whose hands circumstances have thrown the malefactors, should be at liberty to execute justice om them according to English Uw withont interference from America or any other authority. Theru is a wt ll-known jud.meat cf Sir Leoliue Jenkins to this effect, winch we believe is still held to he a nr?/?pWi>nt Unlit lii?r* nnil in Araorisn It certaiuly quoted as authority by American junate, and we apprehend it would not be disputed. But, supposing this is not the case, let it be decided that these nUves are not strictly p.rates, but only murderers of an American citizen m an Auuncan vessel, and punishable by American authontiea only; the sole question wnich then arisen is, are we bound to secure and give up these " I'ugi rive criminals'' when claimed by America! lty a treaty entered into in the year 1796 we were bound to do so, but that treaty has been allowed to a pire. Failing thin, how stands the matter by the common law ol nitioKsf Now, here the highe*t authorities pronounce the opinion winch we certainly ahould ourselves wish to prcvatll, viz: that criminal* may be s> claimed as of right. In America, Chancellor K^nt acted on this view of the case; and iu the case u' Washbourn, did give up a criminal clitmed by the Canadian authorities. Bat the t^icnuou is very far from being beyond dispute. Ine contrary opinion haa equally received the sanction of judicial authority in the American courts. (me ol mcir standard writers, Judge iltnry, alter enuth- rating the authorities on each side ol the question, leaves .he matter undecided; and another pronounces the following very distinct opinion ? "N'o bcvercigasiate is bound,unle*?by special compact, to deliver u,i persona, whetli. r ? ..... ...k. jecti or, chsrged with ?r convicted of crintMCOiaMiUed in another country, on the demand of foreign state, or ita otiiccre of justice.

Nsr .? it yet clear what will be the oouree ndopted by the British government wh"o the delivery rt the criminal* u formally demanded by the United State*. Not so however, the second quealun .it issue, or which we have prouounced an opiamn with verj little beattauon. We allowed, on Uie authority < the nbove mentioned American Judge Stnry, wha is, indeed, evident enough in mere teason, tha th-re wa? no c!-arer ptineiple of international Uu thaa that the laws ol one nation had no pretence ti authority in the territory of another, beyond wha that other, by its own private custom* or onset na?nt*. rhooee to give them- The rights of so Ame ricau nieateroVer otssUvr rr"t MBipiy > Amtricn: law l'ne Kngii'h law now in force in the harbor < Na*sau? di-nincdy amount: r? that w.mis iio spa* re it will recount no surh right?, and authoris-1 n<? at losupponot thfin To claim iliat the English ?t: thortucn stioli detain (or kuHVf for not detaining) < lave as a slit*, ia therefore to claim that American Uw shall override most p >?itive mid di linct KnglH enactments tu Eagu u territory.

The cue tp? peara almost axiomatic?ao clear in itself that nothing clearer can be found to rrat it o??aaany wards only confuse the matter'; end now let ua hear the language held in Congreaa on the anbjeet: Mr. Preaten, speaking ia that assembly, thinks that " the question arising cut of this ease can hardly be a cause of difference between the two nations. The lew of nations wes clear and imperative on the question (so far so good, and we thought that Mr. Preston and ourselves ware going on mest swimmingly ; but then) " he thought that Great Britain would hardly come in conflict with ton nation on such an untenable position." mr. Calhoun thought it was high time this question was i settled,(and that the south should understand whether their property should be preteeted from spolia- . tion or net. " The property ef the south is unsafe," said Mr. Bar row, a verv rigorous gentleman in i that behoof, and if it is to be subjected to the plun- | dering propensities ol British oiiieialis they would , be compelled to fit out armaments and destroy Nassau and other aests of incendiaries aad plunderers adjacent to our coast " " So far as Mr. King was ] acquainted with the subject, Great Britain utterly ( relused indemnity for the property of citizens laken from them br persons clothed with her official authoiity ; and in a recent ease she has goue so far as to cuun'ennnee and encourage mutiny nnd murder. It was the lawless attempts ef that conntry, in hermmbitionsgraspingsnt universal domination, which would render war inevitable unless she ( retraced her steps, and did what was jnst between nation and nation " Are we and Judge Siorr, or arc Messrs King, Barrow,{Calhoun & Co. gene clean daft 1 Or is it only gross and entire ignoranoe of the laws, even of their own country, that leads them to talk such nonsense 1 Albany. ICorrespendeecv of the Herald.1 Albany, March 11,1842 This has been a most unplsasant day, a sort of half sleet,half tnsw falling all the time, dissolving, however, as soon as it reached the ground. In the Assembly to-day, the petitions were net quite n* numerous as they hare been for the last three or four days. The one day election law, was taken up and passed, and will be sent to the Senate for concurrence. The Secretary of State, in accordance with the rcsolntien'of the Assembly, reported the doings of various agricultural societies of the State, and the report was referred to the Committee on Agriculture. Tt- U a 1 ? a 2-1 - SAA ? f at. iuo iiuhsc int-u wvui ihiu cuuiOiUico ui me who]* on the bill in relation to the Pnblic Printing I The qneaiion, on the motion of Mr. Palmex, that 1 the work shall be done at prices fire per cent more ] favorable than are at present paid, Mr. P. withdrew this amendment, and offered a substitute for ( the three first sections. The substitute proposes > that each house shall appoint its own printer, who j shall contract to perform the work at prices at ( least fire percent more favorable to the State than I are at present paid; that the Senate and Assembly 1 shall on the fourth day of April next, designate a 1 State paper, in which the laws and legal notices J shall be published; and that the publishers of said t paper shall hare power to administer oaths in proof 1 of said notices, having been legally published in ] said paper. t Mr. Simmons, in reply to the remarks of Mr. c Strong yesterday, entered into an examination of * the details of the law of 1810 and 1810, and of the time by which the State printer holds his office and his duties, and argued from thence, that the legia- d latnre had no right to change the State paper, a* was contended by Mr Strong. That duty he cnii- B tended was included in the contract. Mr. 8. argued a at length against the right of annulling a contrast, 8 and contended that the agreement with Thnrlow '' Weed, was just as mnch a contract within the pro. c hibition of the constitution,as any tbateverexiated. f In relation to the position assumed by Mr. Stetson, " that an individual could not sue the State, Mr. 8. at- ? firmed that he might sue tho officers who were th* ' agents of the 8tate, as the State had no right to ap- ' point agents to perform unlawful acts. The courts had so decided, Mr. S declared. Mr. S- made a ' long and able speech on the subject, well fortified by constitutional and legal authorities. Mr. Simmons is certainly the ablest man on his side, and is universally liked and respected, for the dignified and courteous manner that characterises his course in the house Mr Loomis considered the bill as analagous to all private bills. It was a private bill in every respect except that the State was a party concerned. Mr. L. regretted that so much time had been consumed en the subject. Ho did not consider the pnblic printing as of near as much Aonsequeuce as the contracts that are daily let to the canals. Mr. L proceeded to review the avguments of Mr. 8., and argued that one Legislature had no right to make laws which another could not unmake.? Thsre was only one limit, and that was the constitution. He considered the right of claiming damages not to be a con-titatinnaTone, but an equita. bleoe That right, however, did not extend to elaiming prospective profits. Mr. L- concluded by expressing his intention to move to rise and report progress, with the intention that when it got into the house, to move that the committee be discharged and that it ba ordered to m third reading. This measure had already been debated enough. This decisive movement was found to be essentially necessary, as the minority had evinced by '.heir acts at least, a determination to talk on this question, till dooms-day. Upon the question whether the committee be discharged, Mr. 8tai,k renewed the discussion on the general merita of tbt bill, arguing to the same purports, as hia friends who had previously spoken on it. Mr Davis raised a point of order. Mr Stahr expressed a hope that he would not be ehoked off. Mr. Davis denied any sueh intention?indeed, there was at much opportunity at could be required to debate this bill on iis tbird reading. i ne ?ncakrr atciaeu .nr stark to do out 01 order a* ilie question wa, privileged on*. Mr. Wcm appealed from the decision of the chair. Pending; this, a motion wae made to adjourn and lost. Mr. I,oom!? sustained the decision of the chair, and adduced the previous practice on similar occasions in support of his position. The debate was contiaued by Messrs. Simmons, U'cfwi.litan, and Smitii, in suppoit of ihc appeal. The question being taken by ayes and noes, resulted in the decision of the chair being sustained. A motion was made to adjourn and lost. The committee of the whole were then discharged from the farther consideration of the bill, and it wa?ordered to a third reading. After the granting of several leaves of absence, the house adjourned. The Senate wcie occupied mainly in the transaction of buiincw, although Mr Dickinson attempted to make a speech and something of a scene was the reeult. He was called to order, and persisted in going ahead and all that The fact is, that the Senate hare no subject before them of sufficient importance to engender spceeh making, and the transaction of real bnsiuess ia the consequence. The Canal Board yesterday imde a sweeping removal Hud appointment of canal collectors and other officers. These offices are not worth as much now as formerly, a reduction of 20 per cent having been made on the salaries since the cowing iu of the pres-nt dynasty. Henry C.

The dreadful shock received by the late Mr. Ducrowtrom the conflagration of the Amphi theatre last June, which terminated in the deatn of one of ib oldest servants, and the destruction of the whole of his theatrical property, induced a state of insanity, from which he never wholly recovered.? On Saturday last he was seized with a paralytic stroke, after which he never rallied. Mr- Ducrow was in his 54th year.

The Slave Trade Treaty.?We announce with leep regret, on the authority of a communication eceived from Paris, by expreas, that the ratification >f the treaty between the Five Great Powers of Eaope, for the suppression of the slave trade, which, iccoiding to the previous arrangement, was to have ieen accomplished on Saturday or Monday next, will be delayed, if not prevented, by the FreBchgoreroraent. nr ik, ...i f-:.i _:.u .i? v? ?mv siu^lli/ ?hu k?vu ioiiu m u wuicu iuc | French government concluded thin important treav, there cannot be any doubt.

To congratulate each other on the general oncurreuce of Europe in a humane and benevolent uggestion,which hud emenated from them conjointy, seemed, indeed, to be all that remained for Engind and France to do. It is certain indeed, that upon this subject the conluct of France, and that ol Great Britain, are ia tiiking contrast. France, relieved from the uecestty ol encouraging the sugar calture in her colonies nd even adopting, in furtherance of the interests if the domestic cut tivatotssf the beet root, the poicy of positive discouragement to the culture of the ane, has never drawn sixpence from her national turse to relieve the distress of her slave subjects, ilthough at a very small expense she might have liffused much happiness ia her colonies, wi(h an ncreaae of security to the iavored department ol rer domestic agriculture. We lament that M Guizot should have thought aisaself compelled to pursue a course in respect to the slave trade convention, which bis own intelligent and lofty mind cannot approve. Yet it is a consolation to us to learn that he has defeated the factions which surround him, assured, as we are, I that his attachment to the cause of truth and right is siucere, though it may not always be effective ; and that the hope of remaining upon terms of ami- ! y with our Gallic neighbors, would be greatly impaired by any diminuiion of his political power.?

POSTSCRIPT." luorrevpvBQcoce 01 mm nem?.j WitHimiTOt, March 11, 1842TIM Saaate-Tmnblt on the C hoe taw Bar der?Tile NaTf. ! tbsSena'e this morning there were several petitiona aad memorials presented, among which Mr. Buchanan amid he took pleaaure in presenting to the Senate two memoriaU praying Cnngreaa to pass a law to refund to General Jack eon the fine of $1000 and eneta, imposed on him by Judge Hall, in 1815, in the court ef Louisiana, in consequence of the responsibility incurred in the diacharge of his official duty. And Mr- Sturgeon also presented two memorials, of like character, from the city and count j of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; all which were referred to the Committee on the Judiciary. Mr. Baraao presented a memorial from the corporate authorities of Alexandria, praying that the marine hospital contemplated to be erected in the District, may he erected in that place : referred to the Committee on the District of Columbia. Mr. Woodbcbt presented n petition from shipowners and others of ForUmoulh, New Hampshire, advene to the repeal of the pilot law of 1837: referred to the Committee on Commerce. Several private bills were then considered in committee, reported to the Senate, and ordered to a third readingThe Senate then took np the resolutions of Mr. Clay, to increase the tariff above the maximum of the Compromise act; to repeal that provision ef the Distribution act which requires its operation to be suspended if a daty of more than twenty per ceat. be demanded to support the Government; te retrench and to economise the expenses of Government. Mr. "Wkiqht'i amendments being nnder consideration, Mr- S(mmons made a long speech in support of the views of Mr- ClayThe Senate went into executive session and shortly after adjourned over to Monday. There is a prospect, it seems, of difficulties between Texas and the Choctaw Tribe, of Indians, whose territory borders on the Red River- Uneasiness has prevailed there some time, we learn, in consequence ot the seizure by the Texans of various ferries and other possessions claimed by the Choc taws; to which the last trouble is likely to give a serious shape, and suddenly- An aged chief, considered as one of the most distinguished personages in the Choctaw ^nation, and whose name is Nituckutchee, went over the line to a Texan house by invitation, and as he stepped upon the threshold, was shot dead. This act of unprovoked atrocity, has excited not only the indignation of the Choctaws, but of other tribes adjacent, and if our government does not speedily interpose, great difficulties may be apprehended. The Choctaws alone can bring six thousand warriors into the field, and with the Cumanchees, the Chickasaws, Seminoles, and other tribes in the neighborhood, they can collect, at a month's notice, a force of some thirty thousand men. Our government is bound by the most solensn treaty, stipulating to protect these people from depredations and injuries of every sort, but the red men have even suffered the grossest injustice at our hands?no reparation is ever made or expected for wrongs done to Indians. In the present instance, they will probably take the matter in hand and redress their own grievances.

It is understood that the naval nominations now before the Senate have to encounter opposition from some members of the* naval committee, and from ?ther quarters where it was not anticipated. In the present threatening aspect of our foreign relations, he condition of this arm of national defence is a matter of the profonndest interest to every section jf the country. The able and statesmanlike paper lately submitted to Congress by Secretary Upshur ivould seem to preclude the necessity of saying any thing more on this subject; end his earnest endeavor to carry out his views by increasing the navy at once, and his sending a large list to the Senate for confirmation, ought to silence those crockets whose ry has been, that promotion was the life and soul of ths service, but whose minds new cannot grasp the likaval nAfiman Uf kiok omnnat# frrv m f ko hen A nf ilia UVVIM uvuvw WIMVII V luuunkv ?iw*u IUV iivau ui IUC Department. It is not to the people of this country that conviction alone is to be carried. The intelligence of the many wants' no atimalua to the advancement of the navy, and the lively sense of the danger which cannot but ever threaten a weak nation, is too powerfully impressed upon the minds of the people, and we daily see it in the powerful voice of the press, whose echoes are reverberated from rock to rock, from shore to shore, from Maine to Florida, and whose cry is, we will have a navy, and assume amongst the powers of the eaith, the station oar forefathers marked out for as. We have heard it asserted that the plans of Secretary Upshur were wild and visionary?that he had chosen a wrong time to press upon Congress his vast project of increase, and by a premature agitation of a subject popular with the people, be had risked those interests which it was his duty to foster and preserve. To this it may be aEked, what better time to recommend defence to the country, when the people are prostrated at home, and threatened with imminent danger from a grasping and powerful nation, whose capacity for annoyance consists in her great Navyl We should have a force strong enough at least to check them, until others can be brought to the rescue. Secretary Upshur's opinions on this point have been submitted to the people, and through the press, have the people expressed their approbation, and he stands now on a prouder eminence than has ever been attained by his most lavored predecessors. He takes a l.beral and comorehenave view at ?ur country, and tha safety of the body politic, which compose its members?he looks upon them as societies of men, united together for the purpose of promoting their mutual welfare and safety, by the joiBt iffor's of their strength and understandins, and the promotion of a good and wise govorament?and he is well aware that in securing the felicity of a nation, there is something more due to the country than sn undivided attention to her civil policy. The military iaone of the great divisioas of duties it owea itself, and without a due attention to what will insure respect abroad, and protect the country at home, a good government cannot be sustained- One of tba ends of political society is to defend itself with its combined strength against all external intuit and violence; and no government can be perfect that has the means and does not prepare its defences It does net fulfil its obligations to the society which hns invfstod it with authority, and the body politic cannot long subaiat under a regimen that makes it uarou&lto the principal object of its deaiinatioa. The duty ( the admiaiatration is too apparent to need comment, and it should foster the etrergth of the country, to repulse aggression, to secure its rights, aad make its fljg respected even in the remotest seas. Then, and then only, can an American citizen trarerae the wide expanse of earth in search of riches and knowledge, aad with a security that combiaes happiness with toil. This is the policy of Great Britaio, and has been that o| all great nations from lime immemorial, and this is the security Mr- Upshur wishes to provide for the nation. His acts are based on common sense and justice, and we have seen nothing yet which can suhj ret him or his policy to censure, unless a liberality lending to re ure the interests of the Navy, can be raaeured * a iiDerniiiy proiuaeomy ofcame the Navy hps keen turned with apir?imony that hi* been ratine into ita vitnl<, and the metaberi of it, even are not prepared for it. They have learned to look more to their own interest, than to that of the country, and they cannot change their game at the preaent time, lint enough lor thia time. The aubject will be continued in the aextlotter MM mt R?pre MHUIITM. At the meeting of the Hon'* to-day, Mr- Win kuccgeded inprocariag the pan'-g* of a resolution for the appointment of a aeleet committee of ffre pereuoe, to conaider and report upa n the expediency aad propriety of separating the patr\ aage of thegoveraaeut from the private political presa of the country, aad upon the beat and moot efficient aod economical mode of efiectiag that object.

Mr. Starlit also moved to strike out the appropriationfor the salary of the First Auditor of the Treasury. Thia gave rise to a debate which occupied the residue of the day. The object was expressed to be, not to abolish the office, but to get rid of Mr. Miller, the first auditor, who was accused of incompetency, and of a violation ?f law, and n neglect of duty. The design of the motion was evidently to coeroe the President into s new appointment ; and this was objr-cled to as furnishing a precedent which might ultimately reach to the office of Chief Magistrate itself.

March 12 ?In retard to the motion for nermis si on to amend, made by Mr- Stewart, ia the case of Frisbee, Judge B stated that he had consulted with the Circuit Judge, and they had come to the decision that amendments to a sthedule might be allowed. The practice adopted in England was difficult, but there the Bankrupt law was wholly a penal one, and the proceedings in the form of criminal action ; but inch is not the case here?the law passed by Congress was mere in the nature of an insolvent than a bankrupt Uw ; men are permitted voluntarily to come forward and become suitors. The court has power, therefore, the same as ia any other civil cause, to pass upon matters that may be brought before it. Motions to amend a schedule will be allowed, but only so on proof of accidental omission, or some nnf reseeu or nnlooked for occurrence If a schedule appears to hare been drawn up loosely, or with a view to conceal or defraud,a motion for amtndmeat will not be allowed. On such motion being made, proof must be filed sufficient to satisfy the Court tnat tha casa comes witbinthis view. Objections bare been made in the ease of Beajamin Cox, on the ground ihat he has notexplieitely stated the situation of bis affairs. He says that he possesses an interest in some real estate ia Michigan ; also, that he was connected ia respect to some Bersonal property with a man named Parker, at oston, and that a sale had takeu place. He does not furnish such data as would enable the assignee or creditors to investigate the matter. The Court thought that the abjections were well founded, and should be sustained. On the question raised in the case of Kessoa, rein > ??iitinner bcins allowed to retain certain jewellery, the Court was uot yet prepared to decide. It was an inporteni subject, Judge Bette remarked, and required considerable deliberation. It was proper to rem irk, howerer, that the assignees had a right, until a decision was made, to be pat in possession ofsneh In respect te little mementoes possessed by a petitioner, or any member of his family, it was not probable that creditors would take them, bat in some instances the amount is important, invoicing a considerable turn. The Court would caution petitioners sgainst concealing or withholding snch property su might interpose s serious bar to their final discharge.
