r NEW YORK HERALD. !\?-w York. \\ t-tliii'Mlay, Murth .4:1, 1H4 4. from \Y a?hlrtgton Our accounts from Washington arc melancholy and heart-rending in the extreme. The President and both Houses of Congress are still as they ware. Nothing is done?aud nothing i;krly to le done. The country is disgraced erery day, by the bad feeling and worse action of the two Houses. What is to be done we know not. A lew dujs must bring about the crisis. 1 oil?# T.iiuM Tlx I'liuiM ?> ? * History inform* u? that in the olden lime a fiw choice spirits went about ihe world at their own expense, grievances wherever they found thenj, and doing battle for the benefit of forlorn damsels. In imitation, doubles*, of tbeknghts of old, an individual had laid h.s lance in reit for the benelil of the Jersey pilots, supposing them to he ?o many forlorn d*ra?els in breeches ; but it behoves him to remember that the old fashioned knights were truth telling as well as danug men. This individual tells us that he was not Solicited by the Jersey pilots?that he has no private or selfish leelings to grat.fy?he is even too modest, withal, to acknowledge himself a champion, aud>et he ajvertises his brain labor in at least two morning papers, and thinks he may be eqaally benevolent again. What a nice young man this knight erraut would be for a small tea party ! In comparing his list with that of the Herald, he urns up by declaring that the vessels damaged by the New York pilots stand to those injured by the Jerseymen as thirty four to nine ; and then leaves the matter to a candid public, lie perhaps forgot that the average number of Jersey piljts for the last five years has been less than twenty, while the New Yorkers number more thau eighty, and that his proportion inouiu ii.tve uces us imnj-iuur iu thirty-six* We give below a list of forty vessel* njured while in charge of Jersey pilots, and eall on H >ward, juu. to try bis hand again, and see whether he can find four times that number on the other side.

S. ship United States was taken to sea ky a Jersey pilot. The person alluded to, foimerly tailed a hay sloop for captain Kearney, ol the United States, and it was probably through Mr. Kearney's kindness that he obtained a license for New Jersey. Captain Kearney being desirous mill farther to assist him, employed him as coasting ?:i-. i- .u:- ,??? . .1 which he had never been, and a route with which he was about as well acquainted as he is with the Emperor of China- The United States sailed from this port in charge ol Mr. James Kelso, a New York pilot; on board was the captain's o/rgd and a man employed by Mr. Uedney, in his coast survey ? Kelso had charge of the frigate until outside the Hook and within a mile of the bar, when, at a word, the Jersey pilot and Mr. Gedney's man passed into the tnizzen rigging, where the Jersey inan became the trumpet of the otherThis feat caused considerable wonder at the time, 6st straBger things have 6iuce then happened. It "Justice" continues to take up such pleasant little matters us these, well may the Jersey pilots exclaim?"tave us from our friends." The Memphis was lest on Sandy Hook?the Garrick about twenty miles from the Hook-?lloth these vessels i n??, H?? ?f ibe Me rn and Rristol?one of I which was lost at an inlet twent)-seven miles and the other about twenty-two miles from the Hook. Four schooners (coasters) have been lost on Romer. The ship Indiana was lost near SMiidy Hook, and the Florida near the Frankfort. The Mexico was lost at twice the usual cruuing distance from Sandy Hook ; but now, that the boats cruise so far, the Franklort comes within one-third that distance.? After this exposp, we would advise this Mr. Justice to forgetie.s and to he less, for though his pen may he powerless to assist his friends, it will, at least do them less injury and himself more credit. The article penned by "Jusiice," goes to establish the fact elated in our paper of the Kith instant, that more vessels have been injured within the last five years, while under the charge of pilots, than ever were injured before since the establishment of the pilot system. The atteution ol the community has been calkd to this fact, and the underwriters can no longer be blind to its importance. There are several causes which have operated to produ;- this risult.?Among the mo&t prominent of these are the toliowing. That independence which the pilots form-rly hid, has been taken away, and they can now refuse to take a vessel to sen or to bring her into port, only at the risk of losing the patroaage of the master or owner on tome other occasion. The prudence of the pilot is now looked upon as obt,t;nacy, and hence his opinion rarely affects the sailing ol the vessel. The length of an apprenticeship has been reduced from five to thr -e years while the appretico have little or no opportunity to ( become acq tainted with the hatbor and the ma* j-avering of iquare rigged vessels. Uefore the rep< a! of the old law, the pilot boa's I not on activ Juty were cruising about the hatbor, ' the pil its sounding aud gurvejing it, thus keeping t e.r own knowledge of its peculiarities fresh in their mind?, and informing their apprentice*. They were likewise pointing out the marks, periormiug d.fliuuli mana-jsrcs in teainanship, and making practical tailors of those under their charge. This has now ceased to be the case- A bout arrives at midnight?her pilots are mustered, and befoie the ?un rises she is far at sea llere she remains until she ha* put out her pilots, when she again leturns for another supply. The nunib?r of pilots ha? likewise doubled, and of course, as our coinmeic ia, to ?ay the least, no greater than it was in lrthj, pi'ou do not carry so many vessels us they formerly did li the p esent .-js em w ere to coniiuue for a serie o! years, the o'd t.ishioi.ed pilots would b gone and a n-'w rare, dillerently educated, with far less experience and skil1, would pu -cerd them. The evils which are now pointed out would increase unt.l the pilotage system would he considered a curse irstend of a blessing- When laws allVeting vital in r crests are framed to graufy Vaiii.y or malice instead of guarding ilmae interests by judicious legislation, they cannot be expected to prove otherwise than in juriotta, and it is not too much to say, that if the I present pilot law remains to disgrace the statute ' book, the timer is not tar distant when its orinin<ttors will men with the obloquy and contempt the\ so richly merit. With these facts and views, wt 'rust that Congress will had time before they ad journ. to settle this important subject. Do, try. Progress of Medical Science?Private Lee. turea?The Lancet.

The quacks, in and out of the profession, begin to be alarmed. Well they may! A great movement has commenced in the medical profession; and, aided by a free and independent medical press, it will go cn sweeping over imposture and charlatanry, like the desolating lava over many miles of alluvial oyder bed*. Tut Public School Bill.?This important bill has passed the Assembly by a large majority. We understand that the bill meets the views both of Bishop Hughes and the Catholics, and that it will pass the Senate, and receive the Governor's signature beyond a doubt. These are the proceedings :? New York School Bill. This bid coming up on its third rending, Air. E G. Baldwin hoped the final question on the passage of the bill weuld be delayed until tomorrow. Air. M opposed, and the motion was lost. Mr. D S. Wkiohi moved to recommit, with instructions to add a section submitting the auestion of the approval of the law to the people of New lurn. Mr. Grout proceeded to address the House in support of the bil, but was called to order by Mr Sivmouh at debating the merits of the bill, on a motion to recommit with special instructions. This point of order was debated by Messrs Humrhkcr, SevmoUh, O'Sulli van, and finally the debate was arrested, and the question taken on the proposition to submit the law to the people, and it was negatived, ayes 24, noes 51. Mr. Kellv then moved the previous qnestion, but withdrew it at the request of Mr. Lawhence, who a?ked the unanimous consent of the House to offer the following?to reler it to the committee on common (schools, with instructions to report the following amendment instanter:? " And the said supervisors shall in the apportionment of the moneys appropriated and raised for the support and encouragement of common or district schools in the city of New York, apportion and divide the same to and among the said several Wards, according and in proportion to the average number of children over 5 and under 16' years of aze, who shall actually attend the common or district schools therein the preceding year, which shall have been kept open at least nine months in the said year." Mr. E. G. Baldwin moved to amend by adding to the instructions the words " and that no religious doctrine of sectarian character be in any manner taught or inculcated in any of the common or district schools in the city of New York." The amendment of Mr E G. Baldwin was adopted. The question then being on the motion of Mr. Lawrence, as amended by Mr. E. G. Baldwin, it Mr. Grout then took the floor in a defence of the bill, contending that the failure of theJPark meeting on tbis subject, showed that the alleged feeling adverse to this bill, had been greatly exaggerated. When Mr Grout had concluded, Mr S. E. Church called the previous question, which was ordered and sustained. The question was then taken, and the bill passed, as follows: Ayes?Messrs. Arnold, Beakes, Brown, Brownson, J. C. Dunham, Case, S- E Church, Cramer, Cuyler, Davezac, Davis, P. Devendorl, J. Dlefenw.y, Joues, Juliand, Kelly, R. C.

Dox, De NoyelUs, Hitchcock, Hunt, Kctcbam, Marrellus, Mead, Morse, Pratt, Swartwout, Thorp, Tucker, B. F. Wells?16. The Speaker declared the bill passed. A suggestion was made that it requires a vote of twothirds as altering the powers of the corporation of New York, and an appeal being taken from the decision i.f the chair, it was given as the opinion of the chairman ot the committee on two-third bills, ( Mr. Hum r 11 hi y) that it was a majority bill. The appeal was withdrawn, and the bill ia sent to the Senate for their concurrence. A Preventive Police.?We recommend our readers to peruse the articles published on this subject, and signed " Reformer." They are to the purpose. What we said by way of reply to a correspondent yesterday, under the same name, had no reference to the writer of these police articles. That paragraph alluded altogether to a different subject. f ^ i t * to T .ivodoium VI r I jnioj II a etna rtv formerly of this ci.y, has been nominated Consul to Liverpool.

Bankrupt Act, and get out. Important in Bankruptcy ? A very important work has just been published on Bankruptcy, entitled a "Treatise oq the Law and Practice of Bankiuptcy," A:c Arc. It is written by Mr. Samuel Owen, and is published by John S. Voorhies. It will be fo"nd very useful to the professisn, in this stage of the bankrupt law. We recommend it to every lawyer and every merchant. Strawberries.?'This delicious article have made its appearance in Boston. Only one be* full however. Steam Ship Columbia.?CunarJ's Mtamers are becoming somewhat slower in their movements. This is in consequence of the strains which their machinery has necessarily received, which explains the cause ol the length of the voyage of the Columbia now due. She was out eighteen days yesterday, and h? r news ought to reach here to-day. Stereotyped.?We are again indebted to Hamden Ar Co. and Mr. Mulliken, of the steamer New Haven, for Boston papers several hours in advance of the mail. Also to Smith's express for Hartford papers. Smith s express leaves for Harford and Springtield th.s afternoon, at half pl8t three o'clock. His omce is iSO I wait street IIiuii IU*ded Villaist ?The Honorable and werry Reverend mother in morals, Abigail Folsom Bqutre, has been arrested in Hoaton and locked up in the watch house. Abby was holding forth at the rate of fifteen knots per hour, to a crowd cf loafers, on the "rightsof women." The watchmen came along, add thought her tongue was going too fast for the inches on her boiler, so they carried her oil ami put a stopper upon it in the watch hou-e. What wickedness! Abby, love, come to New rork, and you shall talk a* long as it please? "deuinition" Steam Fkicates Mississippi asd Miftorai.? ThfB?two noble gteemers will start in a few da;s for Washing'on. They go together and the pasaare to that city will therefor be a test of their eseparate qualities. Much has been said in relation to their speed, size, and strength, but upon no data whatever. In Philadelphia, the Mi*sistippi is held up to be the superior vessel, because she was budt there, and in this ci'y ,the Missouri is said to be the fastest and best, because she was born here. Now it matters not a pin in what section of the country these steamers were brought into existence so long as they were budt in America and by Americans ? H one id superior to the omer lei 11 ue so proved at sea, sailing and steaming in company Then if the Missouri be the better vessel let our engineers and shipwrights reap the reward of their superior skill and ingenuity, and vice versa. Theoretically there can be no difference in the speed of the two vessels, for their hulls are of the same model and draft?their cylinders have the same cubical contents, and their boilers are f om the same moulds. In fact they are as nearly alike as two ships can be, barring their engines?those in the Missouri being American inclined, and those of the Mississippi English vertical, with American boilers and American valves. Therefore, theoretically there can be no diHetence in their speed. In practice, however, there may be. On their experimental trip to sea there are these ad vantages uud disadvantages which should be taken into consideration. It is to be recollected that the Mississippi was built in fresh water, and has therefore comparatively clean copper, and it should be recollected also that in practice, English engines have more friction in their operation, and from their excessive weight over American engines, the vessel is depressed several incnes aeeper ib me water. v/u the other hand the Missouri was built in salt water and lias lain sometime therein, and consequent her copper must be foul, which of course is against her We throw out these data for the benefit of all whom they may interest. If they act in any way in favor of either vessel, we cannot help it. We merely give the tacts. In relution to the inward appearance of the tws steamers?the workmanship and liuish of the machinery?there is this to be said?the Mississippi is a caricature of the Missouri. And this too, notwithstanding the latter cost thirty-four thousand dollars less than the former- llawever, the beautiful appearance of a vessel docs not govern her speed, and we shall therefore look with some interest for the result o< the trip of those two war steamers to the capital, "Cotimtfo Chickens, iSrc."?

Materialism and Idealism. Mr. Bcssht :? As a parent, I thank you for your remarks in tha Herald, in rcDtion to the awful consequences of our Philosophers who are lecturing in our city, all less or more tainted with impiety; bat particularly those on Geology and Celestial Magnetism, to whom you have referred, as tending to set aside tha Bible, the only book affording real consolation, in bearing up against the ills of life. Had one of those men been in the garden (with |j reverenee be it spoken) a few d ys af>r Adam was ^ created, and the Lord should hare told him, point- J ing to Adam, " I made him yesterday"?" Oh! not t so Lord; impossible, for it would require not days, 1 but years for hD bones to grow to their present f size. Just so with those geologists; they deny that the materials of which the earth was formed exist- i ed in perfection at the creation, yet in opposition t to those worldly wise men, God pronounced all j that was created "good." Plain sense would say i that the power which can produce in a thousand or ; sixty thousand years, could produce in six days or iv minutes. Let those nhilosoDhers fxnlain the formation and nature of the wind which we feel ( and breathe, and without which we could not live; , and then they may challenge the power of God in , creation, and we'raay hear theia. Oh, my seal, come not into the assembly wh re Jehovah if ar- j reigned as to his power, or works; for stteh is the ( tendency of the teaching of tboie wise men.

Before Judg? Bett*. Mr ri h 21.?Calvin Angirr.?The Court observed that in this esse, s motion hud been made for tome general rule to be ektabii?hed governing amendments. A decision had been rendered, that after the notice of publ cation was run cut, and the case came up for the action of the Court, cmeudtnsnts, on good reason being shown, could be allowed ; but this is all that has been done, or that would be for the present The amendments that offer will be treated on their respective merits. In the present case, objections had been entered on the ground, that the petitioner omi ted to state whether or not the house to which be was attached. (Messrs. Tucker Be Co ) was solvent or otherwise. The amendment fully goes into the situation of the peti tioner, and gives a full view of his affairs, such as creditors are entitled to. lie state* that he is but u nominal partner in the house, which br bel.eves to be solvent, and thus no claims, on accouat of said house, can come upon hia estate after it has passed to the assignee. The Court believes the petitioner does not intend to act in bad faith, atill a rule ha* been adopted requiring something more than the affidavit of the interested parties I will not say, remarked Judge B , that 1 will refuse an amendment on the affidavit of a petitioner, provided collateral testimony cannot be obtained, but such was not the case here. The affidavit could easily be supported by that of Messrs. Tucker, which would have great weight. The counsel was permitted to withdraw the amendments, in order to obtain additional testimony. DecUionn.?'l be Jbdge remarked that he had felt indisposed yesterday, and Was not prepared to give any decisions He would reserve them to another day Objection*.?The Court stated that it would call the petitions, the notices to which had matured. If no objections were announced by the clerk, they would pass to the usual decree. Objections were offered to those of Benjamin Leonard, Henry H. Llliot, Raphael Faixotto, and John George t^with. Henry H. Elliot.?In this case, Mr. ressenden said he had received a power of attorney from the Hartford Bank, with instructions to oppose ths petition. He was not fully prepared to do so, and wished for a short delay. Mr. J. Wheeler, for petitioner, denied any right to the counsel in preventing a decree. The crsditer was bound to have hi* objections prepared when the case is called, or lose bis opportunity for interposing objections. Propositions had been made to the creditors recent-' ly, and tho Hartford Bank thought proper to decline. Mr. Fesscnden replied that his clients lived at a distance, and.he hoped the case might lie over for > day or two. The Court remarked that distance could not affect a decree. Credito, * stood on the same footing whether they lived in New York or any other part of the Uuited State?, or abroad. Delay would only be allowed for good reasous shown. II an arrangement has been on loot, and the creditor delayed by the means, that was a fair ground for excuse. Mr. Fessenden answered that such had been the case. The petition lies over until tomorrow, when good cause must be shown. Samuel R Brooks?Alfred Brooks.?The petitioners were o| the firm of Brooks, Brothers &Co. which ttopped payment in 1637. They were opposed by >lr. It. J. Dillon for the house of J. Clegg & Co , of Eng'and, on the ground that they bad received goods, with orders to sell and remit the money. Said goods had been sold, and the money obtained six months before the failure of Messrs. Brooks, but never p-iid ever. This is the first case in which it is contended that a factor is a fiduciary debtor under this act. Arguments on the objections were presented, Mr. Dillon appearing for Messrs. Clegg, and Mr. M. G. Patterson for the petitioners. Mr. D. contended that the intention of the legislature must prevail The intention of Congre ss in this act was to relieve misfortune, not fraud. A breach of trust is a fraud. He entered fully into the merits ot the act, showed the nature of fiduciary obligations, and the great eire that should be exercised in relation to the right* of property. Legislators, he contended, went to the very achme ol legislation, when they arrived at that point which would dispossess another of what in right belonged to him. The statute being in derogation of the common law, and operating to takeaway the property of the individual, must be observed strictly, ami not enlarged by construction. He maintained that a man receiving the propeity of another, with orders to sell on his account, and remit the money to the owner, receives that property in trust, and if he pocket* the proceeds instead of paying them over, he commits a breach of trust such as is contemplated by the act. Mr. P. made further and forcible remarks. Mr. Patterson will be heard to morrow. Business of the Court ?Judge Betts remarked that business having accumulated to a great extent, some system would be necessary in regard to it.

Tuesday, Harsh S8-6P. Bt. The stock market presented no peculiar features this morning; salee were small, and prices generally gave way?Delaware A Hudson, Ohio 6's, J; Bank of Commerce, 2 per cent; Long Island J, Paterson J, Canton J, Harlem J. Salea of billa on Philadelphia, } premiumshowing the exchanges to be in favor of that city, under specie payments; Baltimore, } discount; Motile,20; New Orleans, 4}. It is a singular fact that while bills on the latter city are at the discount quoted, sight exchange on New York was on the 11th iust. at 3 per cent discount there for specie. This of course arises from the fact that the bills payable there are in bankable lunds, which are at a discount of 9 per cent, while those .sold there are payable here in specie funds, consequently exchanges are actually in favor of New Orleans. The banks of West Jersey have resumed specie pay ments. The Farmers' Bank of Reading is said to be paying specie. Resumption thus far goes on well in the sections where it is adopted. In Philadelphia, the banks, through their organs, are publishing tha quantity of specie they receive and pay out. This is a kind of theatrical claptrap, and looks very suspicious. The United States Bank did the same. Dating its short resumption, its hired organs in this city, the Express and Courier, published similar statements, and each publication was a wholesale and unblushing falsehood, as the event proved. If the banks wish to preserve public confidence, let them publish a full and sworn statement. Then if worthy of confl lencekthey will retain it. A stockjobbing house in Wall street addressed a letter of inquiry to the Auditor of the State of Ohio, in rela. tion to the State debt. The answer is as follows 1st The amount of indebtedness of tha State falling due within one year from this time, is as follows : ? Interest in July, 1843, and Jan. 1343, about $800,000 Debt to Bank of Chillicothe, 681.000 " Franklin Bank of Columbus, 460.000 " Bank of Wooster, 130,000 Temporary loans in New York, 320,000 Due Contractors on the Tublic Works, 764.000 Total, $2,946,000 Ud to Julv next, our liabilities will stand as follows Interest, ' $400,000 Due Chillicothe It Columbus Banks, 100,000 Ti mporary loam in Now York, 910 000 Due Contractor*, 763,000 $1,333 000 Debt to Bank of Wooiter, 130,000 $1 665 000 Of thin we hare? In the Treasury, 93 000 Wo anticipate from toll*, 193 COO We shall pay Contractors in domestic bonds, 703,000 $1,055,000 Leaving a balance of $610,000 Of which amount the sum of one hundred and tifly thousand is now within the command of the Puud Commissioners. This shows, we think, conclusively that the indebtedness of the present year cannot be met. The means provided are an issue of $1 8)0,000 of State stock, not ta be sold under par. These constitute the domestic bonds witu which the contractors are to be paid. They are not worth 60 cents on the dollar now. The real state of the case is that the State has but $390 000 to meet $1 663,000 between now and July, a deficiency of $1,973,000. Mr. Cornell, the Cashier of the Mechanics' Banking Association, is. we understand, an applicant .for there, ceivet ship of the Lafayette Bank. There are strong objection* always to appointing an officer of one bank as a receiver for another failed institution, for many teaaona. Among others the officer of a bank kas aa much a* he can do to attend to the interests of the stockholder*, from whom he receives a salary. But this is not all. If such a precedent should be established it might lead to collu. aions between tho officers of different banki, which in caae of ultimate failure, might be forever concealed from the atockholdcra through the agpney of the receiver. t or instance we will suppose a caao. There might be an individual who is a director in two institutions, Aand B. Through influence with the caihier of A., he may obtain a special loan say for (4 000, and whea a visit from the Bank Commissioners is expected, he may, to meet it, draw a check on B., and its carhier may m ark it "good" in red ink in the usual way, although there are no funds to meet it. This check so certified may then be counted by the eashier cf A. as among the ' notes and checks ofoth>r banks on hand." The sudden appearance of the Bank Commissioners to examine, might then cause this check to be sent unexpectedly to B. for payment, when ituould figure among his over, drafts, and be converted into a special loan by the dopesiteol the stocks of A. as collaterals, which may fall on his hands and the bank sustain a loss of one half more on the failureof A . and the appointment of the caahier o' B. aa the receiver, a whole train of similar transactions might be covered up.and "special loans" of all the parties be swallowed up without the stockholders finding cut how their money goes. We have here supposed a case in order to point out what al>u*ea might arise from allow ing the otlicer of one bank to have the settlement of thu stlairs of another institution At New Orleans on the 11th, the panic had somewhat subsided.
