NKYV YORK HKRALD. *?w York, Turml?f, April 5, lritil. Our Foreign Krlatlons ?Will there be War! Will there be wart war with England! war will Mexico! war with any country! This is the ques tion 'hat agitates most profoundly all business turn capitalists, and especially all respectable loafets> who have nothing to do, but to discuss and talk. Jn reply we answer, that so far as we can judge, and to the extern of our information, we do not believe there is any immediate probability of war? nor will there be fo.- several years to come- There are difficulties in our foreign relations, but nothing yet insurmountable. Let uj examine them. With Lngland the only really important point :s the Boundary Question. The Caroline, the Creole, and other matters, are questions of indemnification? not principle. The " right of searc h" is an abstraction as yet, and cannot cause a quarrel, till England try tc put it into practice on our ships ot war. On this point we have received private accounts from Puis, stating that the French government have dockred to General Cass, our minister there, that ? ahnnld ever the uuestion of the riizht of search be cooic a. cause of war between England and the United States, assure the government at Washington, that France will be found on the side of the United States, as in the revolution of 1770 " To this we add the Russian government, too, at a proper timeThere is nothing, therefore, in our relations with England at present to alarm us, except the Boundary Question, but should Lord Ashburton return without ejecting any settlement, danger may come upon the world. Ai to the llogan all'tir at Rochester, it is a bagatelle, and llogan himself an impudent fellow,only deserving of public contempt of both nations la our relations witn Mexico and Texas, our government has taken moderate hat decisive steps. General W. Thompson is on his way to Mexico, with instructions to make a peremptory demand if the liberation of the American prisoners, within ten day.i. If this demand is refused, lis is to demand his passports and return home. It will then be determined whether the American squadron shall go to Vera Cruz, and repeat upon the Mexicans the lesson that France 'aught them This policy will be supported by France, but will cause no general war In the meantime Texas will carry on the war on'her own hook, and settle her Mexican relations at the point of the bayonet,by land?while the United States squadron may do it by sea, if the prisoners ar? not delivered up. But although there will be no immediate war, there is a great deal of alarm?and the seeds lor future war are undoubtedly sown all over the world. If Lord Ashburton, now expected every moment, should return to England without effecting any settlement, on any point, danger will spring from that, which will lead to war. It is this view of public affairs, coupled with the bitter malevolence which the dominant party in Congress indicates towards the President, and the neglect of all public business in both Houses, that causes the pressure and panic in the money market, which has produced more failures, embarrassments, and bankruptcies, than we had in the fatal year 1^37. Let us hope for the best. Mr- Clay has resigned?perhaps that's a good sign. Charter Elictiox.?Three or four parties, a few dujues, several small factions, and any quantity of loafers are preparing for the next election, to take place on Wednesday week. Ths regular Whigs meet to-night at National llall?and the Democrats at Tammany?each to receive and approve their nominations of Mayor. The probability is, that Mr. Morris will be elected over Mr. Phicnix?but who will get the Corporation, is a mystery that lime alone can tell. Newspapers.?Three new daily journals have ttarted recently?making six since the 1st of January, besides several weakly papers, attached or separate We like all this?it kerps the business stirring. The more that newspapers are multiplied, the more readers increase. Probably all these recruits will die before next year, but their readers remain to fall back upon those that weather the storm. More Prophecy ?Joe Smith, in his last " Times and Seasons," gives us another slice of the " Book of Abraham," embracing a synopsis of his geology and astronomy, illustrated with a curious map of the Mormon Solar System. Joe also gives his readers a bit of his auto-biography?quite rich it is, too. The Morals or Literati re?Zinoni, the last novel of Bulwer, one of .the most licentious and demoralizing in the whole range of classical literature, is producing a singular effect among the pubUshers here. The rivalry between the Harpers, the "New World," and "Brother Jonathan," has knocked down the price from $1 00 to 12fc cents per copy, and it is probable it will be sold, before the week is out, tor a sixpence. The circulation, in consequence ot the cheapness will be increased to an extraordinary extent- This is the same species of rivalry which multiplied Dickens' work, and made them so popular. It is singular, however, to observe that a inrst immoral and licentious book should be such a card with the most pious, moral, and straight-laced publishers ol the day. What will Mrs. Grundy say to this 1 __________ New TiiF\Tr.Es,\rc.?Miss Cushman's new theatre is to be built on Broadway; the papers are signed, the preliminaries are settled ; and the work will be commenced immediately. The N'?. tional Theatre is also to be rebuilt; and Uamblin, we presume, not to be outdone, will secure a splendid site in Barrataria,$ancho Panza's Lland. Thomas Lloyd, the Defaulter.?'The Collector of City Revenue who recently ran away, is supposed to be a defaulter in the sum of $'50,000 or upwards. His securities are accountable for $5000 only. Previous to his departure, and while the Comptroller was absent, he drew all the money deposited by him in one ol the city banks, and then disappeared. The actual amount he has squandered cannot be ascertained for many mcnths, as it is probable that thousands of dollars have been paid him by persons indebted to the city, which he has not tendered an account of to ill" proper authorities. He has, without doubt, long been speculating and using the public tur ds for hit own private purposes, and had it not bftn tor the recent passage of the resolu. tion by the Common Coined, compelling him to pay 19 the Comptroller,every two weeks, the amount of j *?. .. mi. i'. ihvc continued to speculate upon the pablic tunds until he had abstracted halt' the city .ocorne. We perceive by the late Comptroller's report that the arrears of Genera! Fund rents are put down at $103,000. How much if this money has been eellected by hirn, which tie has not accounted tor, will never be known until a settleni-nl is made with each individual who is indebted to the city. The mount ol" money that passed through his hands was near gdOO.OOO per annam- His salary was $1500 a year, and enough, in all conscience, tor an honest man to cupport himself with without robbing the city treasury VVfieri.'s To* Flotd 7?Gone to the Cape de Verda and a market, to says the Mayor, ?ee 1 is message in another column.

As I anticipated when I wrote to you last even iag, the preliminary objections interposed by llogau's counsel contu ueJ the evening. These objections cous.swd mainly in this, that whereas the alleged o.Teuce was committed in Niagara county, the prisoner hvl been arreste i ou a warrant issued by a magistrate ef Monroe county. The police justice was prodigious y staggered, aid adjourned tne examination uutil this morning, in order to di Rest tuj douD'.i. As il any citizen bad not a right at common law, even without any warrant, to arrent and detain any person against whom there is a probable suspicion of felony. However, at nine o'clock this morning, the police justice having been kind y instructed by some benevolent uinicu* eurbje, dvcided that the examination must go on, and it accordingly proceeded. Meanwhile, expresses had been forwarded to Lockport for witnesses, and this morning they came down the famous Ridge Road in squads, with locomotive speed. 1 will not trouble you with the testimony relative to the burning of ths Caroline, a 1 of which has longbetu before the public, in the most expanded detail, in connection with the McLeod affair. The cutting out and burning of the Caroline, and the death of Durfec were all clearly proved, as on McLeud's trial; and indeed 1 observed that some of the counsel used printed copies of that trial, as lbe basis of their questions Next camu the testimony of Dr. Mackenzie, of Lockport, (not W. L. Mackenzie) who related a long conversation between himself and liugan, in which the latter recounted the manner in which tbe expedition against the Caroline was planned,fitted out, and accomplished, the same as in McLeod's trial, and ?t the same timv distinctly avowed that he tniu one of Ike party! So far has the testimony progressed at this time. You will observe that it is all stale, and no new facts disclosed, except the confessions of Hogau, which implicate bim in the affair. Were it otherwise, 1 would send it to you in detail So here we date the commencement of another McLeod atiiur, which will excite the public mind of two great nations, perhaps place the Kmpire State in a position of nullification in regard to tbe general government, and finally end in the acqu ttal of Hogan. I predict this latter, for no one here, not even Gen Tneller himself?for a moment supposes that J. Sheridan liogan bad anything to do with the cutting ont of the Caroline, or the death of Durfee. They believe that his " confessions" on which so much re.iance is placed, are mere braggadocio, and that he has come here at this time merely to lionize himself. In this view they would be glad to reward bis merits appropriately, by shaving of! his lair glossy ringlets, and sending ki.? k.Alr ?A . ~ ? L .. _ u: u..

Hogan himself has tat in court all day detide hit counsel,literally?in fact sucking his tlmmb! Yesterday he was very lively and conversed gaily with his friends; bat to-day he looks pale and depressed, and shows some anxiety. Perhaps he thinks that in ease of a conviction, and a war should meanwhile by any possibility break out with Lngland, his chances of a premature elevation above the heads of the Yaakees.may be considerably increased Perhaps, too, he fears that the wooden walls of England ?uay not be available in bis rescue, however much they may serve those who are safely ensconced within them. Of course Hogan must be committed for trial, and you may next expect to bear of his departure forLockport. Yours,&c. 1).

The cut at the Home League is well merited. " The S*rf" is a good paper; the author of " Banks and Banking" should write about what he understands.

The article in this number on the Uuiud States and England, is one of tbe best that has appeared in print these ten years- The papers en Thomas Campbell and Arch.bald Land, are vigorous and elegant in style; the Biographies of Great Men is a very able paper.

The "Loiterer" is passable; at any rate there is no such disgusting egotism as appeared ia the last number, where the editwr said that one of the three good things heard at the Dickens'dinner?(we mean of course at the City Hotel) was his own speech. However, it is always welcome; it is most admirably printed, and always contains something somewhat original. Host's Magazine for April.?1This number contains over 29 pages ol those valuable United States Statistics, just taken by order of the Government, and ought to be preserved by every citizen in the country.

"fritudshtp and llirtation," and pmtcularly on their "love and courtship," aught to be read by every daughter and mother in America- It is needless to add in regard to the typography, that this house never turns | out a badly executed book.

The geographical, mythological, and historical parts oi the work are kept distinct : and any ward can be found *ith great facility. This is well printed, with good type and very strongly bound. There is no plagiarism about this book, and as long as the world lasts, no library can be considered complete without a good edition of Lempriere's Dictionary; and this is the best we have ever seen. i Braiiam's Coxccht.?Tomorrow night Mr. Braham and his talented son give another brilliant Concert.

Cheap J.iving? Tariff" Meeting?Animal Magmtiem. Dai Biwitt :? As your israluable paper is tha great receptacle for the communication of the strange things that are going on in this strange world of ours of elopements, bank failures, bankruptcy, &3 , &c , I hare set dawn to gire you an item from the map of busy life here in the Queen City oi the West. The times are the most fruitful subject of talk and eemplaint?all orders of society are more or less affected. Within the last two weeks we hare had sercral extensire failures, which 1 think is only a commencement of what is yet to cooae. Since our Bank* hare resumed things are more settled and iirrn tban they were belore; exchange h greauy reduced, and thj people have new a currency which is lecurc, and may he relied upon. l>f the paper of our own State bank*, there is bat little in circulation; specie, however, is more plenty, and to aome extent has taken the place of the benk paper, withdrawn. The greater portion of our circulation is of the State Bank of Indiana; in fact, I in ly say it is almost wholly composed of it. But amidst all these hard times we hare enongh to eat and drink; produce, proriaion, and marketing, of all kinds, is low and cheap. It ie our,'mechanical and manufacturing laborers that most serert-ly feel the pressure of the times. From the headlong course of our country, this state of things must hare been expected: it wai inevitable ?but out of all this cbaoj that we now witness; is to come a brighter day, wherein things will be brought to s firm and sure basis, and then our country shall rise and stand forth like a strong man in his energy. A week or two sinee our city was agitated by i our politicians and editors in the discussion of the Tarilf, which was kept up week after week for about two months. Tne ultra whigs contended for the old exploded system of a high protectire Tarilf as the grand panacea for the tiinea; but it would , not take?the people could not swallow the dose? , tbsy know too much of the true interest and policy of the west to continue a system to restrict and cripple commerce, thus diminishing our exports and dest roying the markets for its great agricultural products. Mr. Mansfield, Edi'or of the Chronicle, and Mr. Fish, assistant Editor of the Enqaircr, were the leading champions on the opposite sides; it, however, elicited some ether very able speakers, and the discussion was continued and conducted with a spirit of candor and fairness on both sides that does honor to our city. Each meeting was crowded, and was attended and encouraged by the leading citizens of our place. This is the way we do things in the West; the people meet in their primary assemblies, and discuss and probe these questions to the botttm : it was called and conducted without respect to party. But still you could see the line of party demarcation in the final vote?those that always heretofore hare been recognized under the banner of monopo- ( lies and exclusive privileges on the one side, and . those for liberty, equality, and free individual action and enterprise ?a the other. The vote was taken, and apon a division of the House being demanded, it was decided by the President and Secretary in favor of the free traders; and then such hallooing, crowing and enthusiasm, I never before witnessed in a public meeting?yet without any violence or fam.liar ill will. Throughout this discussion the free traders jus. tilled a'rerenue Tariff,sufficient for an economical administration of the government. The Tariff question being settled, we have aur- . ing the last week been favored with a disciple of one of the most mysterious humbugs of the present j age?Animal Magnetism or Mesmeri-m. We be- h fore heard much of the wonders that this science b was producing down Rast,but our good people had & never the opportunity of witnessing the imposing ti incantations of a priest of this new temple until " last week; and wonderful to say, the whole city 0 seems to be alive upon Animal Magnetism; it rages ? to such an extent that it is only equalled by that c invisible agent that brooded over our inhabitants tl during the existence of the cholera. It seems to c be that the magnetic influence pervades every body ti ?it is the great theme of talk and conversation, b The Magnetiser, as he passes the streets, is looked ^ at as some mysterious priest of the temple of Isis; ? and 1 believe that the science professes to trace its J origin to those old Egyptian days. If so, it is cer- _ tainly venerable by its antiquity; and I think we need not fenr of its turning the worldupside down, t if it does the heads of many of the people. i The evening previous to the first lecture of Mr. Johnson, the pedestrian, Dr. Caldwell, of the 1 Medical College of Louisville, was in this city, j He gave notice that he would deliver a lecture at College Hall upon the subject of Animal Magnetism. , At the ptoper time, the llall was crowded with all | the scientific and elite of our city. The Doctor delivered a long incoherent discourse i of upwards of au hour, stating numerous facts and < phenomena i n magnetism, together with his expe- 1 rience in the matter; but all the Doctor's talk and as:everations did not amount to much It did not ' satisfy the people; he might talk till dooms day, ! and he could not make the people believe that mi- | racles were again to be performed without even | a professiou o! supernatural agency. The Doctor i having described the mot/u* ourraru/t and ti e phe- 1 nomena, the audieaee demanded an example?the < Doctor agreed to try?a subject was immediately procured?Robert Rands, a large athletic consta- j ble of our city, advauced to the platform, amid , the breathless attention of the audience; the sub- , ject, with sorue awe and hesitancy, submitted to the magic art, if even he should die a martyr to the i cause. After the Dootor had eyed and clawed him 1 for about five or ten minutes, without producing 1 any effect, our worthy constable, witn eyes as 1 big as saucers, turned upon the Dector," Why," says he, " Doctor, I don't feel anything." At tins the whole house broke out in a perfect roar of laughter, and tbe audieaee dispersed as credulous as ever with regard to magnetism. But lo! a change haa come over the ipirit of that dream.

In opening, this morning, Mr. Holmes was desirous ? Uat the jury should go down and examine the office for n bemselvet. and see the little probability which existed f such a place being chosen in which to commit an illiit act. The whole front of the office, he said, was glass, 1" rom about four feet, up, and they were as little likely to ? arry on guilty intercourse there as they would be on , be sidewalk in front of St Paul's Church. Mr. Nagle, ounsel for plaintiff, said the jury were their own mas- ' trs, and he was perfectly willing they should go, as pre- [ ably they would after the adjournment. Mr. N. said bathe had other witnesses, but wished to rest for the *; resent, as one of them was sick. This was opposed by ~ 4r. Holmes, who contended that it was in opposilien to be rule. For good reason shown by Mr. N., the court ^ [ranted the request. ? Mr. Pressor then opened for the defence. He declared " he whole proceeding to be a conspiracy between Tall- j nadge and his wife to extort money lrom the defendant, ~ ind to gratify feelings oi private revenge. He would ri ihow that Mr. Lowerre, solar from being in thu habit of n rambling at night, was most exemplary ana regular in J! lis habits,going to bed early, and rising at a particular | lour, and was, withal,of excellent character. As to the 11 testimony of Tyler, he declared his declarations to have been totally unioundad in respect to what he asserted as t< witnessing at 10 Peck slip, the offices being in full view d >f the sidewalk, and every thing done iu it liabU to be ri leen from the street. After further remark he proceeded tl to call his witnesses. ti Thomas T.

He also stated that p '.hi re were heaps of straw in the second story,on which tl persons might comfortably lie down and go to sleep. tl Several witnesses were brought up to impeach the ti character of Tyler, but the worst tncy said of him was Lhat they had heard he was not so good, on account of b some one else say iag that he drank, as he wss eighteen a months ago. None of the witnesses ever saw him the ti worse for liquor but once, and theu very slightly so.? ? The following is the evideaceof Mr. Theor, tar several v years his next door neighbor.

Can rusea*Siace my private coDiultation on Thurfday la?t with the mrmbara of both boards of the Common Council ia relation to tha absence and defalcation of Thoaat Lloyd, Collector of the City Revenue, infoimation ha* been obtained making it no longer neceicary for the laureate of the city to obterve the secrecy upon this subject which our united judgments deemed advisable. Relieving that publicity will now best subserve the invests ot the city, 1 bave determined to makethi* communication to yen and solicit .uthoiity to offer a reward or the apprehension of Mi Lloyd .iud for the restoration it the L>ouey supnoavd to - n his possession. In this tommunicatiou I will give you all the information I uve, without distinguishing between the information I aid before you on Thursday last and that subsequently ibtained. On the '18th of March P received information from the Comptroller, that on that day, oaon reaching hie often is found a letter from Thomas Llavd, Collector of City Itevenue, bearing the post mark ol the ottice of thi* city >( the 38ih of March, a*?l the letter dated the 31d >f March, informing the Comptroller that owing o a resolution which hag passed your honorable Kxiy on the evening of the 'list, requiring nil collecting othcere of the corpeeatian ta return under >ath ai each payment by them iota the Treasury af the iity,ihat the amount paid it all that has been collected >j him, be determined to leave tke city fo? C harleston, is ha stated, tocallect a dent due there to him, (Lloyd) or the parposenf paying the atr/sunt to the Common onncil. There being no evidence of the defalcation of Lloyd, other thaa hit going off, a:sd bit letter, which nentioned no amount, the Comptroller sent to the differ riii tenants at Ike Cominuu Council, nod alio made exanination into the bank wheie Lloyl kepi his private iccount. The Comptroller by thia meant discovered net on the 21st day oi March Lloyd drew up hia Lloyd a) check for tha bank, $4,779 07, and that he had oei ved from tenants $oeoo, which he had not paii into he city treasury. We have also discovered that he iwnareal estate in the city of New York and in the itatsol New Jersey. The drawing of this $4,770 07 from he Bank, and not paying it into the Treasui y, was inch rvidence of premi-diuttd fraud, that there could bo to confidence placed in hia statement that ha was going 0 Charlestou. We therefore instituted enquiries in ' her quarters, and fiom these aouroes discovered that which induced us to believe he had gone to Charlestonhave caused an attachment to be issued against hia property in the state of New York. Thia writ not only ittachi s any property he may have in this state, but also ill del ti that may be due to him. An attachment has alio been issued against bis property in the State of New Jersey. 1 have also had an affidavit made, setting forth tis conduct and bringing him within section 60 of page ><li, second volume, Revised Statutes, second edition, which taken in Conner ion with sections 3d and 37 of he tame volume, page 6tJ7, defines the offence to be a 'slonv, punishable by imprisonment in the State prion. I have seut un officer to Charleston with this a Hilavit. Since all this has been done, the Comptroller,by uvestigation among the tenants of the corpot alien has iiscovercd that the amount of Lloyd's defalcation is ibout (3<,000. The dates ol reoeipts given by Lloyd to enants show that much of this amount was received by .loyd immediately belore he absconded, consequently ie must have alerge amount of money with him. We i&ve since ascertained that there it great reason to beiero that Lloyd sailed from this port on the 33d of March, a a brig called the Hope, of which he is supposed to be wncr, bound for fcCape da Verds end a market" For aesc reasous|l have deemed it to be for the interest ofthe itv to make the matter public, and to offer a reward for is apprehension as a fugitive from justice, and also a ewaid for the recovery of the money he has genaj off ,'ith. This money may be taken from him in the same lannerthat any stolen properly might. Under the attachment issued sgainst him in this State, is house and furniture have been levied apon, and the ay mentof all debts due him is suspended. When Trusets are appointed under these proceedings, all persona adebted to Lloyd will be compelled to make payment to hem. Under the attachment issued in the State of New ersey, two small farms have been levied upon. The sureties for Lloyd, I am informed, are good for 6000, the amount of their bonds. 1 deem this a proper occasion to call your attention te ae insufficiency in amount of security directed by orinance to be given by many of the collecting officers 1 the city government, and to the improper practice that as always ebtaiued among those officers of depesitlng ?e public moneys to their individual accounts, and pay ?g such amounts as they choose over to the Chamber id of the city. There has been no check upon these Dicers except to ascertain from the debtors of the Cororation whether they have paid the amount of their in ebtedness, or any portion thereoi. This practice has uabled collectors to use the public moneys for private urposes?expoeed them to the importunities of friends nd securities, end lead to the many defalcations that sva heretofore occurred among previous collecting Dicers of the city government. It is a temptation which as induced many improperly to use the city moneys. To obviate this evil, 1 suggest that the Common Counil by ordinance, direct all its receiving officers to deasite the moneys collected by them, in their name of Dicers, in one bank te be designated by ordinance, hat the moneys so deposited shall only be transferred i the account of the Chamberlain of the city by checks gncd in the official capacity ot the Collector, to the oneys only to be drawn from the bank by the check of to Mayor, Comptroller, and Clerk of the Common ouncil, to the order of the peraen having a demand gainst the city government. That tha collector! of the ity re venae at abort interval!, make their depoiitea, nd immediately alter each deposite make before the layor and tile in hia office an affidavit of the deposite, ud from whom the money a were collected, and that tke eposite waa aUtbem>nev collected by him to that pe> icJ. Thia method would prevent the uteof public mceya for private purpotea, and remove that temptation 'hich haa and will unlets removed, not only dinipate le public revenue, but deitroy the character and standigof many citizens. ROBT. H. MORRIS. A resolution wai then pasted, authoriaiag the Mayor i offer such reward for the arrest of Floyd, at he may pern necessary, and the remainder of the message was eferred to the finance committee, for full inquiry into te amount and particulars ol his robbery of the pnblic easury. The Mayor deserves much credit for his prompt aeon in this business, and the Comptroller also is entiled to special notice for hia exertions in obtaining the aasage of the resolution compelling Lloyd to pay ver his collections, every two weeks, as its effect was Ire exposure of his defalcation. The committee to which was referred the petition of lie Hudson Fire Insurance Company, praying for leave a remove the bodies hurled in the burying ground in :hrystie, corner of Delancey street, reported adversely. Alderman Kimbill, of the 15th Ward, itrenuoualy oposrd the report of the committee, and contended that lie Insurance Company had as much right to remove lie bodies in the greund, as the alonea that belonged a it.
