f NEW YORK HERALDH?vr York, Monday, April 4, 1*44. VKKV IllPOKTAir FROM HMSHWO* TOS. Resignation of Prt?l<l?-nt Tj,l*r"**St',r^ Movement* of tl?e Ultra* lo Produe* Hi* 11 eslgnatlon. We have received intelligence from ^ aahington of such a curious character ihat we hardly know what opinion to lorm of it* authenticity, or lo conjecture what may be the i>.-ue of the present session of Congress. We learn that ever since the beginning of the present stssion of Congress, it has been the secret policy of the majority, acting under a private committee or el?b, to trausact no bueinesa? to delay all lejrisl.itioa?to leave the Treasury empty?and thus to ".-top the supplies" indirectly, in order to compel Pres,dent Tyler to resign the Executive chair, and to retire to Virginia in disgust. By this result, it is expected that the power of the Executive would then, for the remainder of the term, fall into the hands ol the Speaker of the House, or the President of the Senate, by whom the government would be ?IUminimalcu cmui'iy uu uic |ii iui;iyico ui iuc uiua whig?* Ai the beginuing of the session, a secret club, consisting of certain members of Congress, was organized, whose duty it was to manage tins project, and to carry it out as far as it was possible- The plan is to do nothing?pass no laws at all?provide no means to meet the public expenditures. Tins is to be effected, not by direct opposition, but by delay, confusion, stratagem, and various other arts of able politicians. In this singular project, both ultra whigs and ultra locofocos have joined?each paity having their own purposes in view. A short time ago, Mr. Senator Manguni, in a speech, expressed a wish to adjourn und go home?a wish which was probably prompted by the same course .of policy which has been ascribed to the conspirators. Again, in this intrigue many of tie speculators aud stockjobbers of the large cities unite. Ilence the establishment of clubs to sustain the conduct of Congress?to destroy the reputation of the President, and to throw the whole Government into a state of disgrace, bankruptcy and ruin. In furtherance of the general plan of operations, the recent meeting at National Hall was broken up, and all public meetings of citizens to sustaia the executive will meet a similar fate. The origin and purpose of this conspiracy, in forcing John Tyler to resign, is to procure from the present Congress the following measures ;? 1st. An old fashioned United States Bank of 350,000,000 capital. 2d. Issue ol United States Stocks to take the place of the repudiated slate stock, # 200,000,900. 3d. A high taritl system, so as to allow the land distribution to take effect. The only obstacle to these measures is John Tyler, and it is calculated that the great stockjobbing interests of England and the United Sftite, would make up a sum of 81,000,000 or more, if he could be induced, persuaded, or forced to resign before the present, alias hard-cider Congress, have closed the time tor which it was elected. It is also understood that the ultra locofocos have no particular objection to see these protects carried into effect, believing that its success would lorm a capital ground-work ol attack for the next presidency. Tne?e singular views have been given us by persons just from Washington- They correspond with what we saw and heard there in person, and they explain he meaning of many recent events in the political world. Wnat will be the issue we know not. Wait and see. {kj-Tiis: Wall Strebt Pkiuts have expressed great exultation at the row which broke up the recent meeting in National Hall, called by those citizens who think that the delays of Congress have bee a produced more by faction than by patriotism. It appears that the political clubs in New York act in concert with the cliques in Congress- The cliques there prevent any legislation?and the clubs here brsak up a public meeting. These proceedings will wake up the oommunity by and by. Progress or imopers Philosophy ?We refer our reader* to the condensed report of Professor Lyell's last lecture on the formation of the earth, and the age of the world. It contains some curious ideas la opposition to materialism, we learn that the clergy are beginning to move. The Rev. Mr. Dunbar of the Baptist Church, has began a counter movement o! great strength and power ; so has the Rev. Mr. Pise, who carries lUcks of the pretty young ladies in his train. Sympathy for Texas?There is now a strong tide of sympathy lor Texas sweeping over th s country Since the news of the invasion by the Mexicans, was received, meetings have been held in New Orleans, Mobile, Savanah, Augusta, Georgia, Philadelphia, and New York, for the purpose of raietag means and men to assist the Texians in driving the Mexicans out of their country. In Mobile everal thousand dollars v ere raised ; one lady, Mrs Sarah Barnes, giving two hundred ; and seventy inen completely armed and equipped had started thence on an "eaploring expedition" after coons in the woodsol Texas- And half of the proceeda of one night's performance at the theatre in Augusta, were to be devoted to the cause of that young republic. hundred dollars had also been subscribed there and remitted to New Orleans.

By our acounta from ihe West yesterday, it seems that Rochester has become the scene of another " McLeod atTair," by the .arrest, imprisonment, and exnunation of Hogan. The following correspondence from Rochceter, g vesusall the particulars.? Ifochester, March 31, 1S4'2. John Sheridan Ilogan, the maa who was lately arrested at Lockport. charged with participation in the Caroline outrage, aad murder of Amos Durfee, was this evening arrested at this city, upon the same charge, and committed to jail at his own request till to-morrow afternoon. He was arretted just as he was getting into a coach, for the purpose of going down to the landing to enibirk on the steamboat for Toronto He asks no favors, and talks largely of wooden i ,i.., ,.r I.:. i The wain auu IUC piuiruiiuii ui uta ^vtviuiiivum Police Justice, at his request, postponed his examination till to-morrow afternoon. He sent over to Cauada notice of his arrest, by the steamboat Gore, which will be at Toronto to-morrow morning, and in die meantime he lies inglorious in Monroe county jail, in the cell formerly occupied by William Lyon Mackenzie. Rochester, April 1, 18J2. Dear Beknctt? The McLeod affair is iu prospect of being acted over again in onr dear little city, and no mistake Last evening the steamer " Gore" brought in among her passengers the veritable and redoubtable J. Sheridan Hogau, tho same who was recently arrested at Lockport for his participation in the Caroline afftir, and who then gallantly posted " beyaot the border" before a valid warrant could be procured against him. Immediately on llogan' arrival being made known, as it soon was from his entering it in full on th? register at tha National, a profound sensation was created among the refugee portion of our popu'ation. That intense patriot, GcneralTheller "of Detroit,"inparticular,felt such asuiden glow of "amor pitriie"and love of good order, that he was thereby impelled to apply to Justice Buchaa f?r a warrant against Hogan, on ac count of a "suspicion he had" that he was implicated in the Caroline affair. llogan was arrested forthwith, and committed to jail, to the great exultation ot all the respectable tatterdemalions in town, and really to the regret of all quiet citizens. People generally deprecate the idea of any further agitation <a the frontier question at present. Tilt* < X miriAf inn of Urmon Hon iiau># ka??n n* ?L. Court home before the police justice.

Nothing of importance can be elicited before the mail closes, as preliminary objections are to be interposed which will consume several hours. This J. Sheridan Hogan, is a young man on the sunny side of thirty, tall and swarthy, and wearing long black and glossy bail in beautiful little clusters of ringlets about his neck and face He will make a pretty lion for the ladies, especially if it turns out that he has seduced some fond, frail remark tbly fair ene in Canada. It is said by some that he came here on business, others on a love affair,having been previously assured by letters,that he would be perfectly safe in doing so. Our citizens are determined that he shall not be outraged; while the ragged, drunken, patriot rascalocracy are determined that he shall not on any pretext escape. But there is no doubt that he will be protected from violence, if a line of cold steel will be shield enough. You will hear from me again. D L. Albany. (Correspondence of the Herald.) AiB.ur, Saturday, April 2J, 1842In the Assembly, Mr. Loomis reported a bill to reduce the fees of District Attorneys. The bill proposes to authorize the Boards of Supervisor in each county to allow the District Attorneys one dollar for every one huudred inhabitants in the county. It was ordered to a third reading. Mr. SiMiiona introduced a series of resolutions in favor of a protective tariff, which were laid on the table. Mr. Humphrey moved to have the bill for the recharter of the North River Bank taken from the tiles, and referred to a select committee to report complete. The House refused. Mr Loomis' bill relative to judioial and le^al reform were made a special order. Mr. Tai lor asked unanimous consent to introduce a resolution providing that the House should hereafter meet at 'J A.M , instead of 10, as at present. Mr. Smith of Genessee objected. At this late day of the session, when there it so much business remaining to be done, it must be evident that every moment of time is indispensable, and what could be the object of Mr. Smith in thus objecting, I cannot imagine. Mr O'Si llsvas, from the judiciary committee, reported as he stated in answer to a petition Irora Albany, signed by SOW citizens, and another from C> lumbia, another bill for the abolition of capital punishment. This bill differs from the other m providing that it shall not go into ert'ect until the resolution amending the cwu-titutiou, se that the pardoning power should be taken from the executive and given to the legislature, has been adopted by the people. Mr. O'S- remarked that lie wished a silent note taken on ordering this bill to a third reading, as he did not wish to occupy the time of the Hvuse any furtberen this subjsct Mr Simmors said that as one of the judiciary committee, he frit bound to state that he did not concur in reporting this bill. Mr Loom.s said that if the gentleman from New York had included him <n the majority, he had mistaken him. He Could not assent to this reoort, as he thought the committee had no further juiisdiction over the subject, is they had already reported on it, and the House had decided on it. Mr. O'Scllivar then said, if the gentleman disre-ited, he should be obliged to withdraw the report, a* it would not be a majority. He had cer tainiy understood the gentleman aa agreeing to it. The report was accordingly withdrawn. 21 r I'l.if.l e p-nm-i-S ? - ? -I ? - -r i? - * ? . ? ?

Mr Sua kiiaJ*mcr cnleavored to call up the te solution introduced by htm, proposing an amendment to the consti.uion, so as to abolish freehold , qualifications for certain offices; also iha resolutions relative to one day elections throughout the i I'.iited State.* They were obj cted to. The bill from the Senate providing for the exemption ol household furuitnre fromd.stiaiument under landlord's warrants, was referred to a select committee to rep >rt complete. The Senate paased this bill yesterday, and it will doubtless go through the House. Mr. Srnojrc, of the Senate, deserves great credit for the perseverance and exertion* he has manifested in nrging this qu etion to so successful an issue. Th- llsute then took up thn order of third reading of b.lW, and peered a number of 1 jcai and unimportant ones.

' Profr??or LytU'a Lecture on the Kowll Footsteps of Animals. C'fc.akio Kimviss-Tiie Niagara I>ivtkiot Aittiiracitc asb BiTruiNoit Coal ?Mr. Lyell com menced h:s lrcture on Saturday nieht, by stating thai he had been atked to say what caused the difference between bituminous coal and anthraciteMany have thought that the difference was occasioned by the diflerence in the wood, (admitting coal te he of vegetable origin,) which had been converted into coal; but it was not an. No doubt existed ihat bamboos, palms, Ice., would produce a ditl'-rent kind of coal from fi's, 2c? ; but, as we find in ail the beds of coal in Kurope and America, the same assemblage and species of plants and leaves, we are bound to infer that the coal in all these places was produced by the same description of wood There is no doubt that anthracite has once been bituminous coal, and that by being disturbed and upheaved, and the beds of it twisted, torn, tossed in every direction, and bent back on itself, the volatile matter?the bituminous portion of it has escaped. Pure anthracite is^nearly pure carbon. Wood is converted into bituminous coal by the loi-s of its oxygen, and a small portion of its carbon, which escapes in the form ot carbonic acid gas. And we find in ihe earth all the intermediate kiud* and stages of wood, from lignite to perfect coal. And then again, we also find every different variety and stage ot coal in process ot conversion, from the perfect bituminous coal to the pure anthracite coal. Bituminous coal isconverted into anthracite by the loss of its hvdrogoH, and a small portion ot its car bon, which,'when combin-d, form the carburetted hydrogen gas, which e-csp-s from the earth more or lew in th- neighborhood of all coalmines, sometimes so copiously that it can be set fire to, and will burn at the surface of the ground ; and it is this substance which farms the fire damp?the giis so terrible to miners?it is the same kind of gas we are burning in this room. We are borne out in our be liei that bituminous coal has been couver ed into anthracite by dis'urbance, because in the great anthracite coal region of Pennsylvania we find that in that part of the mountain where trie beds are most disturbed and broken in every direction, and bent back almost upon each other, there we find the anthracite in the purest s ate In the west part of the mountain, where the beds are only partially disturbed, there the coal is partly bitu minoas? all the carburetted hydrogen nai not escaped. But in that part of the mountain where the beds are perfectly horizontal, and have never been disturbed, there the coal is perfectly bituminous ? These facts bear nsout in the belief that bituminous coal has been converted into anthracite by disturbance, producing the loss of its hydrogen. Fossil Footsteps or A.nimcls-?Mr- Lyell then went to a different subject, the consideration of the fossil footsteps of animalsfound in the new red sands'one. The class of rocks known by this till.* w. re divided into two parts ; the upper portion was full of organic remains, and in it have been fouad tje toss il tootsteps of am nals, near fiseburp, on the bo> ders of Bohemia- These when discovered made a prodigious sensation, because from the great lest m blance they bore to the farm ol a man's hand, they were supposed to have been made by some kind of man. These fossil lootsteps were always found in pairs?each resembling four fi. gore and a thumb? and alternately the thumb was turned to the right and to the left; and just in front of each of the large footstep marks, there was a mark of a smaller footstep, as if the forefoot of the animal was much Binaller than the hindfoot. These footsteps were imprinted in the clay mud just beneath the sandstone ; then the sand was drifted or deposited from water en to them ; and bv being pressed down formed a perfect cast of the toot, so that they stand out in lold relief on the under side of the slabs of sandstone at perfectly' as if they had beeu chieselted bj the sculptor. The same kind of fossil footstep marks have also been found at Stourton Hill, in Cheshire, not far from Liverpool,on the banks of the Mersey. They have there been discovered in five separate courses of sandstone, with a layer of clay between tech; these marks are precisely the same kind as those on the same series of rocks ia Germany? 500 miles apart. Tne age of the rocks and their relative position are the same. Same of the hind feet marks are eight inches long and some twelve. The animal which mtde thoje marks muti Hive utcu an air urcauici?-uctnusc iu waitrr he could not have made such heavy tracks [Here Mr. Lyell stated that on the mud at Savannah, when the tide was out, he had seen the foot tracks of the racoon and the opossum; and before the tide returned, the wind drifted Bind over these foot tracks, so as to cover them,and in this way probably the original casts of fossil footBteps had been formed ] In the same new red sandstone rock in England, where the footsteps were found, a fossil tooth was tound, which was different from that of every other known reptile. Oa a slice being cut and magnified, it was found to resemble all the convolutions of the brain. A tooth ot the sams kind was also found in the same rock in Germany?it could easily be seen that it had belonged to a reptile, and was dtffeieat from the teeth of any fishes animals Soon after this some bones ol the scapula were found?part of the spine, of the fore arm, hind arm, and skull, so as to enable us to make out a drawiag of the animal as it appeared when in existence. [Here he referred to a drawing of the labyrinthodon, so called from the labyrinth-like inter nal structure of its teeth ] The teeth of three different species of this animal were found ; and it was proved that he was an air breather, by the nasal cavity in the bones. It is necessary here to state that the numerous organic remains here found have been divided thus:?the saurian*, which include the lizird tribe, and those enormous animals the ichthyosaurus, pi giosaurus, See then the chehmians, including tne tortoise, turtle^ifcc.; then the ophidians, which include ihe snake iamity ; and lastly, the battraticma, which comprises the frogs, newts, salamanders, See. This animal, whose footsteps we have tound in the new red sandstone, was a kind ot frog ?a gigantic frog?and ht toas as lurge as a bull! [Great sensation, and considerable tittering among the ladies ] And one of this species of frogs?the ba tracia Hercules?tea* a frog as large as an elephant ! (Laughter) There ure of course none of this specie* of animals now existing to be found so large ; although in Pennsylvania some salamanders have been tound, all of two feet in length. And some few years ago, there were two salamanders, a male asd female, f< uad in the island of Japan, in the crater of a volcano, that were four f-et in length, they were brought to Holland, or rather one was, and put into the Must-urn at Leyden ; and to prove to you that they were carniverous, 1 have only to state that tin malt frll upon the ftmale, arul atehtr up curing the pottage home! Considerable tittering) it was not a litile singular that these salamanders should be found in the crater of a volcano; because the story that the salamander could stand lire uninjured, and was an incombustible animal, is as old as the time of Aristotle; and depositions have been made before a magistrate, in the memory olpcrsons living, that they have seen salamanders remain in a fire for two hours; but all these stories have been proved to be the merest fables. Mr. Lvell then stated that Professor Hitchcock had found in the sandstone of the Connecticut Valley, fossil track marks of birds, and some of them were as large as >he feet ot an ostrich. He also referred to the ripple mark of the waves of the seashare on these sandstoner. and on tha sandstone near Newark; and to fossil marks ol fish in that part of the sandstone of the Connecticut .Valley, which had been depoaited in deeper water than the upper portion of the new red sandstone series, where the fossil footsteps of ti Labyrin hodon were found. The bones of this animal have all been discovered within ihe last lew mouths? the researches are still going on?but nntth has been found lo prove thai the animal called the Cyrotheon and the Labvrinthodon are one and the same; their feet made the same marks?tuey are found in the same eh* of rocks, and their bones are of the same general shape and size. The Tra.vsitias Scams; on Itccns or the Niagara asd Mohawk Disrsicr?Mr. Lie 11 row sa.d he should skip over whole ela.s a of rocks, and speak now of the series of rocks marked No 8, in his Ceneral Map These are the rocks which lie I immediately beneath the old red sandstone, and between it and the slate rocks resting oa the granite. ] They were formerly termed the 'Iranci'ionltocks, as having been the commencement of the transition from the older rocks to the newer. In them the first traces cf organs remains are found, at we ascend the series from the granite Th-se rocks are bow called tetluvian Rocks, from the district of Siluvia, on the borders ot Wales, where they are seen in great perlectteu, and where they have been very carefully examined by Mr Murchtson In the United States, this class of rocks are scan to very great perfection in the State of New York, particularly it) the upper pait ol it, si >ng tt.e Mohawk River, and in the ^Itagara K gton.? [Here Mr Lyell referred to a geological nitp ol this region, which had been lurntshed by Mr Hall and professor Knimons ] No 1 Was the limestone ol the Mohawk and ot Trenton tails, and was the old-st in the series; ii w as 13?) feet thick h-rr, but ut lVi nsrlv inia it was thicker. In this limestone we find ike .i/i;Wa, an extinct genus of that species of shells aow living in all our seas,and a dilli-reui genus ol which is found in rocks ot all sges. Here ion, we find (he Oraptohle, a species of bivalve which is e* inct, and the remains of which art n vrr found in any of the rocks above the old red sandstone. No. 2 Was a sandstone cilled the Ontario Sand stone; this in Some parts was over 1000 leet thick, and contained organic remains. No. 3 Was called the protean group, from the variety of its aspect in riilfarrnt places, sometimes it wasa kind of limestone?sometimes more resem. bling sandstone, and sometime* an iron ore ; it was "Hi feet thick ; and in it was found the pentamarus, bivalve of a vprcies the whole of which were extinct. No. 4. Was the shale and'limestone of Niagara, and formed the magnificent Falls of that region. In this group is found another .distinct class of fossils; here we find ths chain coral, which is of great help to us in classing the various strata, bt cause this ape cies of coral ia never found but in rock* of the transition class. No. 5 Is that portion stretching away on both sides of the Niagara River, parallel with Grand Island, and consists of the Gypseous and Siliferoui Maries; this claw extends nearly to flu Halo No fi Is called the Heidelberg limestone,_ and forms the Black Rock of Uutialo. I'he corals fount in all these limestones are mostly found in the same position in which they grow ; thv point down, anc the star-like cup upwards. Cone upon cone thai had died; and these all grew within 19'J feet of th' surface of the water So when corai in the Mohawl limestone was formed it came close to the surface j thenthe earth snnk down froin 1000 o 2000 feet; thei another bed of coral and the Niagara limestone wai formed ; then it sunk down again, aud over lOiX feet of marble, Arc. was deposited on it; then th( coral and the Buli'alo limestone was formed beneatl the water; and finally the whole was upheaved bj internal torce and placed as it n<>w standsHere Mr Lyell made a few observations about tlit fineness of the mud that was deposited in those days?that the Gtaptehta was a kind of Zoophyte that lived on a muddy bottom ; and then to the vasi spread ol deposits oi mud now going on by the agency of the Gulf stream, which carries the mud Irom the emboucluirt of our rivers, 20 W and 300(1 miles across the Atlantic; it could be carried 200(1 miles, and only deposited, according to the known la ws of gravitation, 600 feet deep in the Gjlf stream, with a current of three knots an hour. He also stated, that no hing which had ever been found ol th? spread of mud iu geological researches, was opposed to tne analogy no w to be deduced front existing causes. He th-n spoke of the pleasure derived from contemplating the probable state of the earth at these verv ancient periods. Many in traversing the ruins of Pompeii, gaited witli delight and awe on the ruts made by the carriages in the mud of the streets, and fur the rude scribbling* made by the soldiers on the walls 1^1 years ago. How much more delight in looking at the foot marks and forms of the animals that moved on the earth thousands of thou?aads of years and ages ago, as the L tbyrinthodon did, and aatheTriiobitesaid which are found in the Niagara limestone. Tliese trilobites are of the crustacean class: ot the crab and lobster family, but of an extinct genius. In many the eye is still beautifully preserved ; and it has a large number of fascets so placed horizontally that the anniaaal could see all around it. (In the eye of the living dragon tly there are 14000 of these.) And an examination of the eye oflhete ir lobites proves that Ihoutandt of ages ago, there wan the tamer (lotion of the eye to light and of light to the eye that there it now that the sea was penetrated by the light and heat from the sun; in short, that the tun teas then in exiitence, and bore the s une relation to the earth in regard to light and heat that it does now ! Mr Lyell then stated that in the upper strata of the silurian class, remains offish have been found? of the sturgeon family?the order of the skeleton reversed ; the vertebra and ribs being cartilaginous. Here then, thus low down in the scries forming the crust of the truth, we have the important discovery of a vertebrated animal. We find proofs that in th?Be animals must have had vision, locomotion, circulation of blood, and all the functions common to the same class of animals now living. Here we have the great ou*line of what we now find in the structure of living reptijes, men malia, and even man himself. Here is the first outline of that race of be uuga which wdi muuiiitru ana improved on in aner ages until we arrive at the moat perfect stage in man himself. The poet sap posed that millions of spirits look on to view the creation of man. But what countless myriads may we not suppose looked cn during all these ages; where we find creatures existing for ages?dying out?then a new race?then their dying and giving place to others, and so en, through such a large number of periods. And in all these periods we find the same great outline?the same great general plan?the same laws of organization?tne aatne jaws governing the vicissitudes ol the animal creation; and these laws regularly continued in force until we have the type reproduced, not only in the inferior animals, but in the superior, and lastly, in man hintsell. And he, enabled by his superior organization to go back and trace ihe history of his great birthplace and residence, the earth, and all it has gone through, and what beings lived and moved upon it, as he finds it engraved on Us rocky pages?oa the s'oay tablets of this interesting book?imperishably engraven on the solid frame-work of the earth itself. Tnese laws tend not to materialism?they are the expreaaioos of the will ot the Supreme Being imprinted on matter. These laws belong not to material things, but lead us up to the contemplation ol a great immaterial Law-Giver! (Very faint applause.) Mr. Ltcll concluded by showing from the horizontal position of these old rocks of the Niagara District, and of the same class ot rocks in the north of Europe, that there could not have been those periods of alternate repose and of great violence, whicti are said to have acted all over the world. These alternate convulsions operated on but a small portion of the earth's surface; and there has never baen a period of universal convulsion on the earth, 01 those old fossillilerous rocks of the northern region: never could have remained so perfectly horizontal.
