The New York Lancet will be published this morning at 21 Ann street. The Sunday Herald to-morrow will contain a number of curious and original article.). The Lancet. The number issued this morning is # xceedingly interesting. It contains a verbatim report of I>r Swett's second lecture on diseases cf the Heart? one of Dr. Mutt's " Waterloo Operations report d by himself?a mo.-t extraordinary ease ol congenital malformation, with an engraving?reports of the rival Ctiniqun-a case illustrative of the fatal effects of tight lacing, which should be universally read?with a great variety ol miscellaneous matter of general interest. Single copies can be had at the desk, price six cents?S'3 per annum, in advance. Lord Anlihurton's Mission ?St ate of our Governim nt ami Country. We have important private Information from Washington relative to the state of public ullairs, and the probable course of future events?but we are sorry to say that the prospects are not the moat encouraging for the revival of trade,or the advancement ot industry and public business. Lord Ashburton has arrived, charged with full powers to settle the Boundary Question, on a principle of compromise?aho the Creole and Caroline questions, as matters of indemnity?the right of search, or any treaty on that point, being out of the question. We do not believe, however, that the American government can make any advances in the way of settlement, thai would be sat isfactory to both countries, or that would be approved by the preseut Congress. Truly has Mr. Clay said, that for the first tim ', the United States government ii in the condition of a "President without a party, und parties without a President"?or, in other words, tha' tJu count iy is uilhout any government at alt, in conse quence of the want of harmony in Washington- In such a state of things, nothing can be expected from the Biitish special Mission?nothing that will organ ize any species of a national currency?nothing to revive public credit?nothing to increase the revenue ?nothing lor any useful public purpose, until the people shall be rous- d from their lethargy and elect a new Congress throughout the country, nest autumnTill the 4th of March, 1H41, we liny then consider the republic of the United Slates, without any government?atd.we must wait patiently till that period brings an end to the disgraceful scenes daily enacting in the present ha> d-cider Congress. Commercial Embirrxssme.vt.?Every other day extensive failures arc taking place in New York, Boston, Pniiadelphia, Baltimore, New Orleans, and almost every commercial town in the country. The panic i? worse than it was in 1ST7. The immediate causes of these disasters spring from the failures and resumptions of the banks?the repudiation principles of the States?and the shocking conduct of Congress. The remote causes arc extravagant living?private houses like palaces?thousand dollar balls and soirtes?no industry, but much waste? and in fact the general demoralization of society, produced by a vicious credit system. One third of those in trade ought to go and plough the soil?and many who play the piano, should p.'ay the spinning wheel. i Gothic ?We have been informed that some f i the employees in the Custom House give every e- , cies of annoyance to French and German imp rs, t merely because they happen to have been ' in a , foreign land, and in spile of their naturalix. it here, under the law s of CongressIt ts a small spite for any of these employiei?to act on such principles- The place of birth is nothing ?blood and race every thing, Were not the pilgrims of New England foreigners I Were not the Knickerbockers that settled New York foreigners 1 Were not the first Catholics of Maryland foreigners'! Were not the first Quakers of Pennsylvania foreigners ! Were not tne Cavaliers that settled Jamestown, Virginia, foreigners ! Were not the Huguenots that settled Charleston, South Carolina, foreigners ? All?all?all are foreigners?the only natives are the poor Indians, and where are they! Driven to the foot of the Rocky Mountains, and soon will be thrown into the Pacific ocean. Ktcur or Petition versus Right or Speech? The Gas-Cock Pakiv.?A very funny meeting was held at Washington Hall the other eveniug. It was called together by ike Abolitionists to censure Congress for their opposition to the right of petition, as exhibited in the case of Mr. Giddings of Ohio.? Charles King, Wm. C Bryant, Win. L Stone, and several abolitionists headed the movement Well? what was done ! Wny the very men who were ready to call down the vengeance of lleaven on those who opposed the ri^ht of petition, trampled upon the right of speech, and put down a Mr. Burleigh, who was only shewing forth the consequence^ of their own principles. The meeting ended in a row, and the gas-cock was turned down till daikness ensued. The moral effect of this meeting will he great upon Congress. _ The way to stop an obnoxious man is not to censure or expel him?turn down the gas cock, and the thing is done. Another Veto.?Fire aju Brimstone ?Governor Seward has put his veto on the bill taking away the printing from Thurlow Weed?so thM State Barber will enjoy his soap suds, value Stif.OtK), for another year. The Governor is determined to serve his friends at all hazards. This is his third full veto, having given two half ones?which makes lour vetoes in all?pretty well for a whig Governor and a whig party opposed to all vetoes If a democrat had done ?o, what a racket the vigs would have raised !?But on our side all is right. The morals of politics are now ripe enough to receive, gratefully, a shower of the same dew from Heaven which was rained upon Sodom and Gomorrah.

Oar of mod extraordinary and important meeting? tli it has taken place in this city for some time, was held last night at Washington 11*11 to organize n Tjler party in tliia city, aid nominate a Tyler candidate for MayorT his rnieting was a most extraordinary one in eta ry set.se of the word; extraordinary in its conception, extraordinary'in its progress, extraordinary in its termination, and extraordinary in every thing. B fore the hour of opening the. meeting, there were over two thousand persons present; and more than hall of ih> m were warm advocates of Mr. Tyler, believing that he haa not been fairly treated, and they came determined to sustain him and his measures. The meeting was organized by the appointment of Col Alexandeii Hamilton, as Chairman; and the following Vice Presidents and Secretaries Eon Pkf?ii>f.mi, ALEXANDER HAMILTON. EokVick Presidents: Jeremiah Tow le, Lain but Snydam, John J. Boyd, J?hn lt-mick, Peter S. Townsend. Henry B. Bolster, B.B.Andrews, Lewis M.

F. Thompson, a well kr.own staunch wing merchant of this city, read the address and the following resolutions nominating James Monroe for Mayor:? Resolved, That we esteem the integrity of the Elective Franchise to be paramount to every other political intt lest, and that we consider every attempt to encroach on its purity as degrading to the patriotism of an American citizen ; and we feel confident should it be practised with impunity, the grand object of a frequent recurrence to the censorship of public opinion, will for all essen'ial purposes be destroyed. Resolved, That in our opinion the urgent 'necessities of the country require that prompt measures be adopted to restore the credit of the National Treasury, and for this purpose a sufficient Revenue Bill should he enacted to meet the wants of a uatioual emergency, with a prospective promisu of tiie early discharge of the public indebtedness. Resolved, That with tho adoption of a comp.tent revenue bill the credit of the nation will soon recover from its present weakuess, and the Treasury be enabled to make the necessary temporary loans from our own legitimate resources. Resolved, That the independence and intelligence of the Executive in vetoing the respective Fiscal Agencies. pasted at the extra session of Congress,J meet our cordial and deliberate approbation, from the perfect conviction that they could either never have been organized, or ii established, instead of ri covering, they would have paraljsed the ',est energies of the country. Resolved, That we entertain the highest respect tor . I Uf ..-.i-tr-lo n.,.1 c-.u-.rul r-f h . c A id i ? cr n i-.lt.-, A VSU.VI ...... -V-.o. ? 0 .......... Cabinet council, while in others we have not the slightest confidence. Resolved, That in our judgment, the President of the United States, John Tyler, having honorably redeemed his pledge to his Whig friends, by the re organization of the Exesutive cabinet with geutlvmen of the same political character, justice to the present distressed condition of the American nation now imperiously demands, that we should invitethe support of the Democracy,to protect the public welfare from further accumulating embarrassment. Resolved, That we recommend t ither the absolute repeal of the distribution bill, or that it be so modified as cli'ectually to disembarrass the several states of their several ditiiculties,for as the act as it now stands, is totally inoperative, to produce the object for which it was created, while it presents the extraordinary legislative anomaly of an abandonment of an important source of revenue in the midst of our national troubles. Resolved. That it is expedient and necessary that a radical sy-temof retrenchment and economy should be adopted, at, J that such changes should take place in the roll, ting and disbmsing officers of the government,as will spire the fullest confidence that the public revenues are justly and honorably administered. it. solved, That there is every reason fo apprehend dtould corrupt political advisers be not speedily di?misicd from executiv e confidence that a line of demarcation ivill be indelibly drawn between the national adminis[ration and the democracy of the people. Resolved, That we recsmmend such a modification of the School System as will place safely a*, rest the uufoitunate controversy which now threatens to endanger that most inestimable institution. Ri solved, That we recommend JAMES MONROE as a suitable candidate for the Mayoralty, and in the event of his declining a nomination, that Geo K. Thomas, J. L. Fredericks, and William S. Brighem be a committee to select a proper candidate. Resolved, Tha'the proceedings of the meeting signed by its oflicetf, be published in the INDEPENDENT Press of the city. Resolved, That we tender our confidence and support to the Democratic members of our State Legislature, for their manly independence of every sinister consideration in the passage of a Revenue Bill, to guard and protect the credit of the Empire State from disgrace and dishonor while we contemplate with sad regret the insidious i iforts which have been made by those who claim to be the exclusive advocates of good fuith and uncompromising justice?to cast a censure on their measures. Resolved, That tha proceedings of this meeting be forwarded to the President of the United States. These were received with loud cheers. On reading that part of the address which rellected a little on Mr. Clay's conduct, it was evident tha* several Clay men were present, who at that stage ot the meeting it was evident were determined to kick u;> a row. On the resolutious being put, on account of some opposition, the chairman called for a show of hands ; there appeared about thirty opposed to the resolutions ; he then in order to give all partics fair play divided the house ; those opposed were to retire to the rear of the room ; it was almost unanimously passed then ; still many of til e Clay men began to murmur, and the house was again divided right and left, when about three to one appeared in favor of the resolutions. The Clay men on th.? became desperate and sent lor the Unionists, who came there determined to break up the meeting. headed by a Mr Chickering. On feeing this, and the real business of the meeting being concluded, a motion was made by the friends of Mr Tyler to adjourn- This was opposed by shouts and noises, and cries of "Clay"?" Three cheers for llenry C!ay?old Harry," and all sorts Of noises by the Clay men. Oae of the most violent got upon the platform, and began to pour forth a volley of abuse against Mr. Tyler, and all connected with the meeting ; and by his course and that cl ihe Unionists, it was evident that they intended to carry their points, if possible, by brute force and 1110b violence. On seeing this,and with a view to prevent a disgraceful riot, the chaiiman declared the meeting adjourned. This enraged the Clay men so much that they and the Unionists yelled and screamed, and jumped on the pi ltldrni, as the officers ol the meeting were leaving it,and broke the table and chairs to atoms, flung them in all directions, broke ihe chandelier, and acted more like maniacs than men In consci]u?nce of which, several arrest; were mad- and we presume the rioters will be held to answer for the destruction of property they caused. The gas was turned off? Chiekering swung a chair round hit head, and cried "clear the room,"? and finally all were turned out in confusion, friendi and foes. This is the first attempt that has ever been inad^ in this country, to introduce into a peaceable, lawful, political meeting ol freemen, (met to express hei 1 llODCM prcifrtncp?,; uio^* uisgrdcnuiPtmro *?i iiiul violence, and brute force, that characterized the commencement of the French Revolution, and which only terminated by the public execution of the in stigaters of such oceneo, alter they bad, by giving loose to their maniac pasrions, deluged the str< etsol I ilmir capital in blood.

He is a good citizen, a t;ue patriot, hat s* rved his country in the field, ar.d in various l<gi?l,tive councils; anc haaevi r been ready to sacrifice hi* private comfort for the good of the great mass of his fellow citize r. UnJer these circumstances, we trust, and hope,ant lull)* believe, that Mr- Monroe will s'and at tin commg contest. He owes it 10 himself to do thi ?lie owes it to the moderate and sensible men t all parties who are tired of taction, but wh ore their country, and who desire to see an independent and able man like himself nomina ted. If he stands, both factions will be broker down ; if lis stands, we shall then have the nueleu of a great moral, civil, and political revolution, tba will.bring about a union of all thoss who love then country more than they fear the clamor of party? and who desire, as a preliminary step to a speedy revival of confidence, credit, and business, through out the Union, that for a year or two at least w> should have repose from party political strile auc warfare. We understind that this meeting is to be followei: up by a great inses meeting in the Park on Monday alternoon next. Let all who love independence sustain it.

Another "Fence" Arrested?A man named John Searley was committed yesterday lor receiving stolen goods. If the police will only turn their attention towards these sources of crime they will ?fleet far more reform in society than in the arrest of hundreds of petty thieves.

On Monday next, they will sing by invitation (a fourth time) at Newark?on Tuesday at Elizabethtown?on Wednesday at Patereon? on Thursday at Brooklyn, by invitation of the Mayor?and th'-n return to town to sing at the Society Library Rooms, on Friday next. At this last coucert, Mr. Braham will sing Barry Cornwall's singular poem, " Napolean's midnight review," the music by Neukoman, and also the famous duett (with his son) "Rest weary Traveller," from the " Devil's Bridge." The musical excursion round the neighborhood, is u novel idea, and will no doubt be highly gratifying to the inhabitants where he visits. It will save them the trouble of coming to New York. Signor DeBeonis publishes tn-day, a second edition of his celebrated musical brochure called the " Carcanct," beautifully bound and improved. Musical professors .and amateurs express the highest opinion of this work. The Signor, in company with Martini, is now in Philadelphia, to give a concert there.Signor Kcusowski, a celebrated Polish pianist, visits Boston, probably to give concerts in conjunc tiou with Mr. lveyser, an eminent performer on the violin. The style of Kousowski on the piano forte is full of delicacy, passion and elegance. There is a great deal of false and meretricious taste abroad in the execution of music on this instrument, but a revolution is approaching.

He said that foreign tonnage engaged in American trade had vastly increased i.t ten years last past, and tt is still increasing. The price oi ship building luI bor is only one fourth what it is here. This has the etlect of reducing Anerican tonnage and in I creasing foreign toutiaga engaged in international trade.

Under such a system foreign i goods would be allowed to remain in bondage for a year, pay duty and interest at the importer's plea* . sure, or obtain a drawback if exported. The system t f reciprocity in our navigation policy injures this . country and ought to be abandoned. Mr. IIaven wanted the Uonding and Warehousing system, to be limited to goods imported by our own people Oil ^XIIICI ILO" Report re-committed. Mr. Wood reported on buttons and pins.

Tai.i.madge said that our people have to enntend aualnst the rivalry ol EuroDean labor at fif. teen cents a day, and of the enormous quantity of machinery, steam engines, Jcc. Report accepted. Ur Fisher reported on philosophical instruments. We had never considered the great importance of these instruments; they are actually necessaries of lite, besides aiding navigation, &-c. Almost all these astronomical and philosophicil instruments were imported; they can be made here as good and cheaper, and ought to be. The Report asked for 30 per cent duty on gold and,silver instruments and :i."> on all other. None should be free. Report accepted. Mr. G. C. Da vis,from the committee on boots and shoes, reported that there must be a duty of twenty percent on bouts and shoes imported, or our manufactures can't be supported without reducing the price ol labor twenty-five per cent. We import vast quantiiies of boots and shoes, and large orders hare gone out to Germany for more The report asked for a speeifia duty of #1 50 on boots and bootees, and 50 cenis duty on all foreign shoes, and 30 per cent on leather, or we shall all be destroyed Mi. Denny reported in part on agriculture. A proper protective system is necessary for the farmers Mr. Jefferson in 1816, said that the farmer and manufacturer ought to be alike protected Our agricultural exports were insignificant. ThreefoMrths of all the (lour sent to Earope in the last ten years, was sent ?t a lots. We don't export so much breadstuff's now as we did fifty years ago.? From 1790 to 1800 we exported 300,000 barrels of beef. In the la3t ten years we exported only 400,000 barrels. Exportsof pork have inercascd-the aggregate exports of btef and pork is less than it was fifty years ago, and this at a loss. There the foreign market lor our agrieul.ural produce is a poor one; and must be replaced by an ample home market Report recommitted. Mr. Ripliy said even the repeal of the British Corn Laws would afford no brut fit to our farmers. It costs too much to transport our produce to England. Besides, Great Britain has only iin ported 2,IK)#,000 bushela a year during the last four ycHisof short crops; and 1,200 ( 00 for six years before. Flour could be got cheaper from Poland, Germany, Genoa, and other place* than from America Some one said that Mr. Ames had cast a brass cannon for government?it was better than British, and 15 per cent cheaper.? (Cheers.) Mr Norton said, that our agricultural trade with England for ten years had injured us. If Eng land had been in the moon, and we could not have got there, we'd been better oil'.?(cheers)?better off if we'd never sent any agricultural products abroad. America? grain always gets te England a little too late. Mr. Shaw, of Massachusetts, said that Massachusetts engaged as the was almost entirely, in manufactures, consumes far more American flour every year than Great Britain ever did. Mr Shepterd, of Massachusetts, reported on cotton. He asked for duty of six cents per square yard on colored cottons, and 7J on colored or printed goods The duty is necessary to make the business steady.

Mr. Hoeace Ubeelet looked on this u a firebrand thrown into the Convention, political in it* bearing, and would do away ali the good, that had been done by the Contention. He mured to lay it on the table. Mr. Shaw aaid he hoped they would meet this subject manfully, and show their hand.*, and rote on the re^lulion or against it, and not lay it on the table. Mr. Gkeei.ev said it would tnke a week to debate thissubj. ct- It had better be dropped. Here there Mas considerable exc.tcment among the Clay men. One man said that it had taken six mouths in Congress. Mr. Theadivcll, almost the only loeofoeo presets, was opposed to an approval of the distribution of the public lands. Here the Clay men became pretty much excited. Several wanted to speak at oaee. The Chairman said that debate win out of order. Mr. Shaw's resolution on the public lands, was laid on the tabla. And then out of spite to Mr Treadwell, the locofoco, for interfering about ihe public land*, the Clay men who wer?- nine-tenth* of the|wbole, reconsidered hie report about gold and silver, and laid it on the table. Mr. TrREADWEi-r. than began to read some locofoco resolutions about ihe currency. The Clay men wouldn't hear?and put him dowu. By the rote it appeared that he was the only locofoco present.

At the opening of ths Court, the two watchmen, Johu Kennedy and John Sinclair, who pleaded guilty of burglary and robbery, were sentenced to two year* and six months each in the S'.ate Prison. Patrick McMahon was tried for gravd larceny, in stealing $21 in bank notes from Thomas Pluokett. He was defended by Peter B. Manchester, Esq. but was convicted, and sentenced to two years imprisonment. Jane Kelly pleaded guilty to grand larceny, in stealing $97 in gold and silver from John King, and was sentenced to two years. Catheriuo Huff was tried for petit larceny, and the jury could not agree, when the District Attorney entertd a nolle prosequi, and she was discharged. Henry Kearney was then put into the box, on a trial for Mayhem, in biting oir the end of the nose of Wm. Hasty ,on the 15th of March. He was defended by Peter B. Manchester, Esq. who so managed the case that although the proof was positive, and the end of the nose proJticed in oiieu Court, preset ved in a phial of spirit*, yet the jury did not agree, and they were discharged. The Court then adjourned to Monday. Court of Common Plras, Before Judge Inglii. Atbil 8.?F.li\hi Tallmadge va. John M Lnwerrr.? Crim. Con?This case was concluded en Thursday night. The detendant totally failed in showing any appearance ef conspiracy on the part of the husband and wife?while, ou the contrary, the testimony brought up by defendant in xupport ef liis regular habits as to being in early at night was disproved?as was also the im peachment of credibility in regard to witnesses for plaintiff on the first day. It appeared that Lowerre took plainiitr* furniture, including clothing contained in the drawers of two bureaus,(which were locked.) to hie store in P<.ek slip?that Mrs. Tallmadge called lrequently to get her own and children's clothing?that she and .1 ..f., V.I.... ,1; ........1 .In., in or n i It v inter course?that he was locked up with Mrs T. one night in her bed room in Grand itreet?they met one evening at the house of one of hii tenant* in Clinton street, when "hegave her the wink" and they went olf together? were seen in company one evening by a witness who also knew of their being together for half or three quarters of an hour in the garret of plain tiffs house, a day or two before the furniture was seized. In addition, Mrs. Tallmodge made excuse as to no! joining her husband,or going to-housekeeping again afterthey had beeu broken up, and they have remained separate and estranged ever since. In December last Mrs. Tallmadge was confined, her child confessedly belonging to defendant, and she was compelled by her landlady to leave the house the moment ahecould do so,their children having been previously sent to their father's store. The husband, in consequence of the loss of his furniture, the breaking up of his family, and the conduct of his wife, became partially deranged and had to be watched to prevent him laying violent hands on himself. After the case had been ably summed up by Mr. Holmes for defendant, (who was assisted by Mr. Pirsson,) and Mr. Nagtefor plaintiff, the court delivered a clear and impressive chargeto the jury, who then retired for consultation. About 1 o'clock (night) they returned with a verdict in favor of plaintiff for $5,000 damages and 0 cents costs. QO- THE NEW WORLD FOR SATURDAY.

The sales at the stock board to-day evinced no mate, rial change in the. general features of the market. Indiana bonds fell}; Illinois. 6's, J; New York State per cents improved 2 per cent: Delaware and Hudson, Canton, J; Iiarlem, |. We have seen two petitions in circulation from the stockholders of the Mechanics' Banking Association, an institution uader the free law, one addressed to the directors, setting forth the losses of the institution, the causes, remote and immediate, and little probability of a healthy resuscitation of the concern, and recommending an immediate liquidation. The other is addressed to the Vice Chancellor, in case the directors refuse to comply, praying him to interpose and force a settlement. These petitions are already signed by ten per cent of the shares. The prayer should be immediately acted upon. We believe the officers of the bank acknowledge a lost of 30 per cent of the capital, and the business, by their own showing, must now be a losing one. Under the English banking law one stockholder can force the liquidation of an institution by showing that a loss of 35 per cent of the capital has been sustained. This is just, and should be the case here, more especially when seve! ral stockholders are of the same opinion. At Norfolk, Ya., on Saturday last, a public sale of 30 shares el Virginia St ate stock was made at 70. Farmers' Bank at 70. One of tho most ridiculous farces got up by the friends of oppression is that of certain manufacturers, who, no w that the tariff question is agitated, hare just bethought them that they are in distress, and have put their handa upon half time, in order to produce a theatrical t fleet in favor of higk taxes. It is not astonishing that manufacturers should resort to every artifice to obtaiu from Congress a tax in their own favor upon thpir fellow-citizens, nords it astonishing tbat'venal prims can be hired to favor such a movement, but it is astonishing that men, other wile sensible, should gel up at public mectioga, ana, presuming on the utter ignorance of the community, state falsehoods, misrepresent facts, and exhibit a fanci ful array of figures, backed by ribald and obscene jest', and expect by such means to sway the destinies of a great people.

The ailent progress o( discredit haa been gradually undt rmining the large acrnmulationa of debt, ind destroying the ability to pay elf ell grades of debtors. In many States it h? taken th- rurged ahape of repudiation. which haa accelerated that distrust that has tarried down the banks in its course, prostrated individual credit, and stagnated trade. All business emanating from bank facilities haa been violently broken up, the consiquence has been the forced return of the banks to the specie principle, which has curtailed the means of the inland dealers to meet their city liabilities to w holesale dealers; cut off rwifications from their resources, the latter have failed in their obligations,and those banks only which held the largest proportion of paper, based on actual transactions in all its transactions, have hitherto w ithstood the storm.
