NEW YORK HERALD. New York, Tuesday, March 39, 1944, Tkr Political H<tu1u|Im The Special Message of the President is the signal for another onward step in the great revolt lion which has been going on among the masses of the people since the accession of John Tyler to the presidency. The doctrines, principles, end policy avowed in that document, droit- a lint Utictm //? adwnniiUation and fAe ultra* of both faction*? ultra whigs and ultra locefocos- The issue is now u.rly presented to the people?and there is every appearance that ihi? will if un *md PfUflOUDCtf SCDtCOCf ot approval or condemnation upon iis merits In this city the ultra ? hig prints, such as the Coulter and Enquirer, the Tribune, and others of that ilk, are out in open opposition to the new policy, and denounce the r pea! of the distribution law with unmeasured censure I he a h >le policy ot the administration, now presented by the President, falls back upon the people, and must be settled in some way by their practical sense and discrimination.? Meetings will therefore be the order of the day, amoDg the people, from this period up to the next ejection. Nothing is to be expected of Congress. The Abolition W?ur In Texan? Sympathy fleeting In New Oileans. T'lP reornt Inminn nf T-?V,.. .I, army, ia three divisions, under Arista, Bravo, and Vasquez, coupled as it is with Santa Anna's anti-slavery declarations, has aroused the people of New Orleans, and they have held a iarge and iniluential meeting in relation to the movement. At this meeting some of the most iniluential men in New 0,-leana presided ; and they passed a series of strong resolutions indicative of their hostility to Mr xico, and their determination to assist Texas by every means in their power. The conduct of Santa Anna towards those Americana who were taken in the Santa Fe expedition was denounced ; and his alacrity in releasing British subjects, and not Americans, was pronouaced an insnlt and injury that called for redreasand atonement at his hands. The meeting expressed (he opinion also, that Santa Anna holds Kendall and others prisoners, in order to nuke them abide the result of the istue in Texas, and he was denounced as a remorseless and bloodthirsty tyrant. The whole conduct of Santa Anna in this affair is denounced as " an act insulting to the honor and dignity of this nation, and the people thereof, and against the principles of justice, interna'lonal law or common morality." And the meeting further resolved, that apart from the known barbarity, inhuman cruelty, and monstrous perfidy, ex , hibited towards the American captives in Mexico his holding them to abide the issue of his abolition war in Tex is, is such an indignity to the United States, and to its Government, as to justify an immediate resort to the most vigorous means in the power of the nation to redress. With a view to some immediate and strong action on this matter by the people of New Orleans and the South generally, the meeting resolved that, n consideration of these insults to the United States, and injuries to her citizens that it is proper for thoee citizens who reside nearest their oppressed countrymen, to take every opportunity to give them assistance, either by money, Arc., to them individually, or by furnishing aid to those whose success in an impending enterprise trill en'ttre the tame result ' This means, of course, instantly sending out ment money, provisions, arms, ammunition, clothing, Arcto asesist the people of Texas in their lighting the Tt. ...... ...u:.L. ?u:. ._ i? J iUCAitaua. uic n my iu nuitii ujip id iuuc UCJI1C 19 act forth in the two following resolutions, which will doubtless be acted upon instantly :? Resolved, That the Constitution of thU country recognize! the right of our citizens to travel wheresoever they please, and in what manner they think lit, and in what numbers they may d-em prudent, provided they do not embark as sn armed, organized holy, direct foracountry at peace with these United States, for the purpose of warring upon said country ?and that persons so leaving this country, for the purpose of redressing wrongs done their countrym?n, or indirectly to punish offences against their government, are performing an act next in |?triotism to the defence of their own toil from the foot of an invader. Resolved. That the Repablic ol Texas is at peace w ith teat of the United States, and it is therefore lawful for the citizens of this country to go to Texas in what manner and at what timet, anil in what numbers they think fit ; provided they have no hostile purpose towards Texas ; and that when they arrive in said republic, they have a right, and it is proper for them to do such acts anil things as may be conducive to their own good, the assistance of their fellow-citizens, and the ledretting of wrangt done their countrymen. A committee was appointed to carry out these yiews without delay; and in a few daya we may expect to hear of a powerful expedition, perhaps not leas than 300 men, leaving New Orleans for Texas, well armed and equipped. This meeting is undoubtedly but the first i f a series that will shortly be held all over the South and IVest, having the same objects in view. For, in addition to the grievances which the whole country have to complain of in the treacherous and cruel conduct of SantaAnna towards the American priso- | n<*re>, the South and West have reason to be alarmed in telation to his avowed determination to free all the negroes he may hod in Texas, and abolish domestic slavery there. The war which Santa Anna is now waging in Texis.may with propriety be called an Abolition War; for one of his principal ob jects, as avowed by himself in undertahjog this crusade against Texas is to set free all her negroes ? One project also to induce the blacks in Texas to revolt aod join the Mexican Army ; and if they do. there will bo very little difference between tl.em in point of complexion, and the majority of those now in ths Mexican ranks. These facts will have a powerful influence on the men of the South ; who will never consent to have Texas on their immediate border, as a tree State, for the escape of their negroes at the South ; being ye1 a more dangerous neighbor under those circumstances, than Canada or the North, and the result will be that the whole of the Southern and Weetern States will commence immediately to contribute to the assistance of Texas, and send out money and men, and munitions of war ; and they will continue sending them thither until tha Mexican army is driven out of Texas. When this is done, the question is, what will the S.OOt) or 10,090 men who go from the United States to tight this year, do after the war in Texas. Will they return to the States 1 We think not. Will they remain qaietly in Texas ! We feel sure they will not. Will they enter Mexico! That it very probable, especially if they number 8,000 or 10,000 strong. And in this care, if not before, Mexico will apply for, and receive the aid of volunteer troope from England; this with other matters will bring or government into the mele~. Then France cannot long remain an idle spectator, And therefore Ihis rpeck of war in Texas bids fair to be the nu cleus of a very pretty quarrel, and perhaps a general fight all round.

Bat while we oppose the Buhop on these grounds, we cannot by any mean* approve the gross, beastly, shocking attacks upon his character whic't have recently appeared in certain newly established prints These attacks art unjustifiable ? lurbarons, and entitled to the uttermost scorn of | an intelligent people.

The coon hunters are called upon to assemble in the Park this afternoon, about five o'clock. The a:ranger from Vermont assured us that the expedit.on is not intended to take -any part in the war between Texas and Mexico, or to violate in any degree the neutrality laws of the United States, which is at peace with the governments of both.? It is simply an expedition to hunt coons and squirrels, which have become very numerous of late in Texas Captain John Scott, of Vermont, who calls the meeting, is a well known coon hunter from the Green Mountains. It is told of him tha1 he went out one day in the woods there, and found a coon in the limb of a high tree. CaDtain Scott in siantly up with his rifl*, and was going to let fly, when the coon, very considerately, held up his paw and asked a parley, thus?

There will be some "gone coons" iaTexasone of these days. The Police of our City. A violent outcry has been raised by certain prints against the conduct of our police authorities in arresting a number of street walkers, whom they found peramoulating the city night after night, insulting every person whom they met, and disgusting the residents of some of the most respectable streets in the city. These p-ints have made the most flagrant charges against these magistrates and the officers without any justification whatever, and the tendency of their assaults is to cause every one to set at naught the authority of the police. How is it possible for the police of this or any city to keep order and preserve the laws, if the press comes out and abuses them, and libels them for putting in force the very laws ihey are bound by their oath of office to enlorce. But it seems some o1 that very disreputable class of characters who were taken up, have established certain prints, the latter feel bound to come out and protect them by abusing (he police. Let any one recollect the slate of Broadway and Chamber stieet, and Warren, and the various corners in that neighborhood, for some weeks past, and how dangerous it was for a respectable female to pass for fear of insult. Why, even in Paris such disgraceful scenes are neither tolerated or witnessed, and the poor degraded creatures that are wandering about and annoying every body, ought , to be taken before the proper authorities, and, if r .? .? "?/ ?? , not return to their haunts ofvice. The nuisance spoken of is one that has long j called for redress at the police; it has bee* demand- ' ed by the respecte'de inhabitants of the neighbor- J hoods that have nightiy bee* infested with these , people; and instead of being libelled ka?d abused therofor, the; police deserve the thanks of the whole community for their correct conduct in the premise?.

In this city, it is known that we have nearly two hundred painters of all kinds?many of them ordinary, but others giving indication of great talent and genius. Unfortunately, however, cliques start up to put forward certaia artists, and to put bick others with equal, if not greater talent. This state of things ought to be unravelled and dissipated by an independent press.?

Mr. Editor, 1 read in yomr paper of thia MTiiif the followiog notice of an accident on the Western Railroad : ? Amothm Accipkut o.m thiWutiik Railrsap ?The ears run off the track on the 21at instant, near Choster Village, smashed two or three of them, badly fractured the leg of the engineer of the locomotive, and totaed Harnden'i Express messenger to a considerable distance on to a green bank Ought not there to be more care of this road 1 On the mornincr of the 2lst instant. I took the cars at Pittifisld, for the purpose of visiting the deep cut in the town of Washingtoi.aad observing ihe sublime scenery on the line of the road be tween that place and Chester village, in company with a friend. Owing to the delay of the baggagetrain, which vi' caused by the breaking down of the loeemotive, the pstsenger train was delayed an hour and a half at Pittsfield. On starting, the conductor stated that he would be obliged to make up the lost time in going to, and returning from Springfield, for he bad his instructions to make up sach time as migkt be lost by such accidents. 1 thought at the time that this was rather a strange order, and expressed my fear that the speed required might endanger the safety of the passengers. We proceeded at a very rapid rate, I should judge at least 30 miles per haur, for a great uortion of the distance between lMtsfield and Meckel, at which latter place I left the cars, and proceeded on loot along the line of the road to Chester Factories, wnera i cearu 01 me accident tnat naa nappemd eight miles below, and two miles from Chester Villiage. Ey means of a land-car, I soon reached the spot, where I found the engine ererturned a few feet from the track on one side, while on the other was the post office, the front part entirely smashed in, and the tender overturned between, and a little in advance of the other two. The accident happened wh-re the road had been cut through a granite rock, to the depth of several feet, and on a straight line ; and it was against this rock that the. locomotive and past office had infringed. The engineer had not had time to shut off steam, or reverse, and he was thrown violently on ouc side of the engine as it went over, fracturing his leg below the knee Harnden's Express-man escaped most miraculously, his car being demolished, and filled with the wreck of splinters, while he was unable to say whether he atayed in the car or jumped out?his impression was that he leaped out, bat in this he was undonbtcdly mistaken j'he fireman jumped off, and escaped with a slight contusion. The passenger cars were left on the track, the other cars having broken loose as they left the rails The locomotive was perfectly new, and this ..... r. :? u , j i.. ; u sr.. u_ I was iuc mil irip u udu iuiuc; it wdi w?uuiuiljr ! finished, and hs fine a specimen of the arts as 1 ever saw- On examining for the cause of the accident I found that abont fifty fett from the spot, where the wheels of the locomotive left the track three of the sleepers, or crossties had been undermined by water running under the read, and eould be made to settle two or three inches by the weight of a single rant To appearance the track was perfectly level, but when the heavy engine struck this part of the road, there can be no doubt that it settled down several inches. The sleeper next in advance rested on a firm foundation, nnd did not yield in the least to pressure. The conductor informed me that the speed was great, probably over twenty miles an hour; that it was more than ordinary was very manifest, from the ofTects of the oolfision apon the engine itself and the other cars. The manner in which the accident happened is perfrcly obvions, although 1 have seen it stated in aa Albany paper that it was entirely unaccountable.? Going with sach speed, the locomotive first settled upon the timbers undermined, then striking the solid portion, bounded up, as if a stone bad been laid across the track, and when it came down, the flange of the wheel struck upon the rail, on which it could be traced for at least thirty feet before it went off* to the left It is not uncommon, 1 am (old, for an engine, going at its greatest speed, upon a track of unequal solidity, to bound several inches from the rail Fnrtiinxtelv- the flinr* upon the right side, or such accidents would be of very frt quent occurrence. From what I observed and learned from others, I am satisfied that accidents will continue to occur upon the Western Railroad until the speed of going it very materially lessened. On the day on which the above accident happened the cart ran fifiy-four miles in two hours and ten minutes, including ten rtoppages, which eould not hare been at a much less rate than thirty miles per hour, which would bean unsafe decree of speed on aay railroad whatever Owing, however, to the nature of the country through which this road pastes, there are numerous curves, many of them quite abrupt, which such enhances the danger ef accident, and readers a great degree of caution an imperative duty, li is however bat an net of justice to atate, that there is do railroad in the United States constructed with as much solidity and skill as the one in question ? A person can read or write in the cars with nearly as much ease as in his study or parlour; and if tha sense of danger, which he now must feel, wore taken away by the reduction of speed, the nt phu ultra of pleasure travelling would be attained.

It is said that those vessels are detained from going to sea inconsequence of the scarcity of marines and money. If the latter is one cause, why keep on board the Independence when there is no likelihood of her going to sea till the warm weather sets in, a pilot drawing pay of eighty dollars a month! It is very easy to get one of our New York pilots when the ship is ready, end theiefore we see no good rea son for paying out eighty dollars worth of Treasury Notes for nothing. And the pilot on board is not a regular New York one, and should not be permitted to take to sea a man of war like the Independence. a> iu me canny 01 saiiora detaining these three vessels is nonsense. There are already enough shipped to man the Razee alone, or the two steamers, and such being the fact why not transfer those of one vessel to another, and send her off to sea to be of some benefit 1 March Weather?This month "came in like a iamb and is going out like a lion."

A tedious debate on the corn laws occupied the House of Commons during five successive nights, duiing which no new arguments were brought forward of particular interest. Mr. Villiers moved "that all duties payable upon the importation of corn, ntcal or dour, do now cease or determine;" when the committee divided, the numbers were the motion 90, against it 393 Oo the 26th ult. Mr Christopher proposed a higher 6cale of duties His proposition was that the'maximum duty should be 5j. higher th?u the maximum duty proposed by the government. The division was taken oa the question, and theforiginal proposition was carried by 3U6 to 104. SLAVE TRADE TREATY. In the House of Lords. 21st ult the Earl of Aberdeen laid the table the treaty of the slave trade signed by all the great powers of Europe except France. He regretted that he was under the neces ony ui miurimug uiair torasnips mat the ratihcation of the king of the French had not been exchanged with thoshof the other powers; neither was he able lo inform the house of the time when that]raiification might be expected. The treaty with France con clu ded in 1831 and 33, remained in full force and vigor. Right or Search?We learn from Paris that a delay of four months has been asked and obtained for the French Government to ratify the right of search. There is terrible work in Ireland^ A tremendous ribbon conspiracy has been discovered. The Great Western steam ship leaves Liverpool | on her next trip. France. The non-ratification of the slave treaty by France ! still engages the attention of the Paris papers. A great sensation was created in the French capital on Wednesday morning, by the announcement of the London papers that the slave treaty had been ratified without the participation of France.

Elder Knapp re-baptised a Mr- Russel, minister of the Congregational Church, maeting in the Marlboro' ChapeH This ceremony was performed by immersion. Elder Knapp had quite a glorification over the event; but alas! how short-lived was his glory! It seems that Mr Rnssel did not submit to the n:e from a conviction of the importance of the rite itself, but to prepare himself to immtrtt ethers, that he might secure them to his church, and prevent their going off to join Knapp's church- Last Sunday Mr. R. imirurs ed several persons, and took occasion to avow pub licly. that he had retracted nothing of his former teaching, that infant baptism is valid, and that he submitted to immersion for the same reason that Panl circumcised Timothyj'to accommodate himself to the prejudices.

All clasrea slimed in the great re- 1 vivsl, and among the rest the Unitarians and Uni- " versaliata. "The meetings of the "Univeraalists," ' aid he, "are thin; they have at some of their meet- J inga not more than ten or twelve, and some of their 1 Societies are almost broken up." We have seen 1 the same statement made in several papers It ap- ' pears, however, from the best of testimony that the r causa of Uni verbalism in Boston was never in a more * prosperous condition. The meetings are largely at- ' tended; conference meetings are very interesting; * and the crowds that repair to them are so great that should they increase,they must be holden in the body of the Meeting-Houses instead of the vestries. We I conclude troin ail this, that Elder Knapp has yet be- r fore him a stupendous work to perform. He must ? not leave Boston for a year, at least."
