Kully to complete aur State organiz ttion it will be n? cessary that a Central Whig Committee should be appointed, and charged with the general superintendence of the Whig cause throughout the Stale, and particularly with the preparing, publishing. and circulation of such address. ? end document* as may be necessary to advance Whig piiuciples, to correspond with similar Committees or other bodies of whigs 111 other States, and to unite w ith them in such measures as may be det m-d best,in promoting harmony in whig council and action throughout the Union. And your committee recommend that the said central committee be authorised, on the part of the w higs of North Carolina, to unite with the whigs of other States in selecting a suitable candidate for theoSic3 of Vice-President, or to call a convention of the whigs ot the State to be h Id at such time and place as they may deem expedient lor that purpose, us well as for promoting the success- of the whig cause in the coming elections. Should this plan for general and local organization meet the approbation of th-' convention, and be fully carried out in action by our fi ii nils, no i utioual doubt can exist of our triumphant siicciss iu North Caiolina. No reflecting whig can want motives for using his best eftorts to bring about this result.

Let him remember that the success of the whig parly will promoteevcry interest of our country while by its defeat, the reign of profligacy and corruption will be confirmed and perpetuated?a new course of experiments upon the business, the finances and the property of the country will be commenced, resulting in all probability in effects still more disastrous thau those under which thu people now suffer. Let liirn remember that he must hear the triumphant exultation of political adversarits, whose success lie could have prevented; by whom no moderation lias ever been exhibited, and whose fierce intolerance, stimulated at once by the recollection of former defeat and present victory, how shall he be able to bear, whose conscience shall occ use him of culpablu ne lect of duty in the hour when exertion might have saved hir country. Above ali let turn remember that the political privileges with which a hind Providence has blessed him. bring with tlx moor responding obligations and for the fidelity with which he impravel them to the accomplishment of just and honorable purposes he is rcsponsillc list only to his country but his (?od. In conclusion, your committee recommend the adoption of the resolutions which accompany this report. Resolved by the whigs ol North Carolina, in Convention assembled, That the death of William Henry llarri son was an event deeply to he lamented liy every friend of his country?and that subsequent events have taught us to regard it as the greatest calamity that has befallen the nation. Resolved, That the great whig principles for which the contest ol lf>40 was waged and won, are u? dear to us now as then; ami that neither the di seition niui treachery el supposed friends, nor the tanuts and opiwsition of known and op a adversaries, sh. 11 depress the energy or cool the ardor of ot;r eflbrts to promote and jierpetuate those principles a* the best safeguard of our country and the best inheritance of our childrenAnd whereas, John Tyler, the present TrisiJcnt of the United States, was nominated ny the National Whig Convention which met at Harrisburg, in December. 1839, as the whig candidate for the ollice of Vice Pri sidrnt, and accepted the said nomination, and w as by the exertions and support of the whigs of the U nited Slates, elected to that office ;? Resolved, That when by the death of William Henry Harrison, he succeeded to the first Magistracy, he was bound by every consideration affecting the integrity of man, to carry out in his administiution the gieut principles ofthe party by which he was elected. And whereas, the said John Tyler, instead of thus discharging the duties of the high ollice so devolved upon him, has renounced the principles and abandoned the party which brought bim into power; whilst by adopting the measures and wooing the support of u party, lately the object of his declared opposition and distrust',and by ?C9rce disguised profligacy in the application of the patronage of the Government, helms attempted, and is attempting. with utter disregard of dignity and duty, to buy up a party, and thus secure to himself a re election; Therefore, Resolved, That this Convention disavows all political connexion with ami support of the said John Tyler; approves the proceedings and Address of the Whig Members of Congrvssat the close ofthe late extra session.and bold the whig party discharged from all responsibility for the conduct of public affairs whilst controlled by the present administration Rewired, Tnat HENRY' CLAY,of Kentucky, by eminent abilities, extensive know ledge, sound judgment, liberal and patriotic views, anil by long, arduous and unsparing devotion to the service of his country, has entitled himself to the undivided contlJence and support of the people of the United States?and that he possesses th>' first place in the affections of the whole whig party of this State; and therefore, Resolved, That this Com ention do for themselves,and the whigs of North Carolina, propose and nomiuatu the sail HENRY CLAY for the next President of IhcUDited States, and do pledge themselves to give the nomination a hearty ami persevering eupnort. And this Convention doer earnestly and respectfully urge the whig party of the Union to unite witn their brethren of North Caioliua in this nomination, and in steady and constant ctfotti to ip-omoteits succors. Resolved, That the law passed at the last session of < ongress for distributing among the Slates the proceeds of the public 1 mils, is a wise an 1 just law. founded upon the uncpars'.ionablo light ofthe States, resulted from the acts ami dcils of cession, and was in no sense a irratui teus donation. That Congress have no moral right to repeal the came, and that the late Message, of the President ' of thejUnited States, urging that body to said repeal, do- ( crvet decided reprobation. , And the Legislature of North Carolina having, in the name an 1 en the part of the good people of the Slate, re- 1 pealsdly declared the light of the States to the public domain, condemned t very attempt to dispose of tbut domain inconsistent with that right, and called upon her Senator* and Representatives to urge her claims to her portion thereof, andthefun.ls justly het own, according to her interests in the public lauds being needed, (besidea other wise aud good ends,) for developing her resources and diffusing aaioug the poor children of hor population the blessings of moral and intellectual cultivation, Resolved, That the people of the State should not, and io the opinion of this Convention, will not consent to have the said funds wi'hJrawn from them, aud w ill regird any of her members of Congress who, after her claim has been acknowledged, and provision made by Congress for its satisfaction, may support such with- i drawal, as disregarding the plain interests, violating the declared will.and sacrificing the just rights ofthe people.

Important movement III North Carolina? Nomination of Henry Cloy mid John Tyler no the Hlval Candidate* for the next Presidency. We have juat received intelligence of a highly important movement, started by a Convention of Philosophers, in the state of North Ctrolina, that will give a decided direction to political events for (tie next twovearxor more. It is the olUeidl noniiua tioii ot Henry CUy and John Tyler, as the rival und opposing candidates for the next presidency. The official Address and Resolutions, promulgated hy litis Committee we give exclusively, we believe, in this day's paper. This movement is highly important in its character and results. It will soon be followed up by other States?and probably by Virg.nia and New York, among the first on the list The nominations for the next presidency by National Conventions will, therefore, be entirely superseded and nugatory. In another aspect the Raleigh Convention has taken a very original course. Tt ey have not alone nominated iheirown candidate, but they have also nominated their opponent, thereby killing two birds with one stone. There is a great deal of labor-saving in this prompt and comprehensive policy They set up the name of John Tyler, the reigning President,only to knock him down with that of Henry Clay. In this movement the Convention has anticipated the ac tion of the other portion of the people, for it is very evident, that, judging from the course of the locofoces in Congress, from the recent elections in the Sutes?from the developements of public feeling in New York, and from other la go cities?there is a very rapid approximation between Captain >John Tyler and all those floating elements which arc opposed to Henry Clay and the whig party. A new organization of parties ha? been heaving and fermenting, and generating ever since the accession of Captain Tyler, and in this imperial city of New York, one of them has already assumed the name ol "Patriots," and intend to varry the scheme oat to its fullest extent. The nomination of Henry Clay and John Tyler as rival candidates, by the North Carolina Convention, only accelerates the period when the whole country will be devided into two political camps, the one to be called the wliigs, with Clay for their candidate? and the other the Patriots, with Captain Tyler at their head. But this 19 not all. The principles and measures of each of these movements, are not loss market and distinct. The Whigs are in favor of an old fashioned Bank of the United States?of a distribution of the proceeds ol the public lands to the States?of an issue of a national stock of some kind to take the place of, and pay up the debts of the repudiating States?of a protective tariff and high revenue. Those opposed to the Whigs are equally opposed to these measures, and confine their support to a limited revenue?an exchequer iesue of some kind on the dollar-for dollar principle, and the leaving the States to take oare of their own credit bY direct taxation, as New York has just done. There is also another important difference, on the use of the veto power, including some minor moralities on the distribution ol offices. On the foreign policy of the country, the two patties seem to be identical. On the whole this programme of operations, presented by the philosopkica! statesmen of North Carolina, seems to triikc up a? pretty and as intelligible an issue as could be desired. Every important joint of difference js distinct and tangible. Both parties,'w hig and patriot, are republicans?so are both iir uuuuiuttitTp, iiciiry umy uuu j uiiu a yier?uui iney differ widely on certain financial and politico-commercial doctrines, and they appeal to the whole country to decide between them. There is no hickory nut?hard cider?coon-skin?log cabin or any other humbug in the question- For the first time in many years, the next presidency must be contested on the principles c.f common sense. We thus present the two parties and their candiiates, but we wash our hands of all committals or compromise for either- We are independent in thought, purse, action, and person?and we shall see justice done between the two parties,but shall be the partisans of noneErrata ?We are requested by Col- Hamilton to' sav that in his letter to the President published yesterday, " governing " should be read for " grow, ing." No great mistake?no errors now a days are corrected. If a mun uses a wrong word, or runs away to Cape de Verd with #-'k),0(K), he lets it stand as it is. t).* Dit ?Wonders will never cease. Among the signs of the approaching millenium is thai of the contemplated change in the profession of one of our crcat tragedians, who, report says, is about to commence the study of Theology. What foundation there is for this report we know not, but it is certain that he has recently received numerous visits from pious ladies and gentlemen while seated on the anxious bench. Can any of our readers give us an account of the musical soiree recently held at his house, in 22 d street, at which theological professors, students, and many other devout persons were present ? We would be happy to obtain some account of this affair, which it is said was a splendid and judicious combination of refinement, elegance and piety. High Letteh Postage ?The average cost of conveying letters in the West India mail steamers,is ascertained to be about one thousand dollars per letter This of course does not come out of the writers of the letters, nor the receivers thereof, but out of the English government. These steamers are run at a great expense, each being manned by eighty men, and consuming about thirty tous of coal a day. If, alter this great outlay, they no dot carry more than one letter each trip from Tortola to St. Croix, as was the case with the last mail steamer thence, we shall think that the steamers either belong outright to the British government, and were built to hover near our coast, or that the " Steamship Company' is composed of a very philanthropic and public spirited set of men, to carry letters for other people at an expense of one thousand dollars each. Mexican Nam ?It is said that St. Ana has purchased two steamers in England, manned and armed for tight, in addition to the City of Dublin steam er lying at Vera Cruz. Two corvcta are also about to pass under the Mexican Ihg, and he has also one schooner built in this city. It is possible, therefore, that St. Ana's vessels may outnumber Houston's? and being manned by Englishmen, will probably liow some fight fcr supremacy in the Gulf. New York asd Albany Hail Road.?Alter a violent opposition, both iu the Senate and Assembly, from the central power of Albany, this important and valuable charter has been preserved. The time for tiie completion of the road has been extended, and the rights of the company, in Westchester and omer counties, tul y recognized and confirmed After ail th<- opposition of Albaav, she could only mu tcr four vo'rs in the Senate and seven in the Assembly to go against this important road. We understand thai we are indebted to " Little Troy" for defeating the various projects to defeat and d< lay a work that is so important to us, and at a period too, when we find our eastern neighbors prop >se to carry a barrel of flour over their Western Rail Road 2?:0 mi'es for 32 ct n<*. Miss Cl\rant>on ?This beautiful young artist gives anothor 9eries of her Headings and Recitations, at tne Society Library Rerm3, to-morrow evening She makes a selection from the writings of Morris, Sargeant, Benjamin, Bryant, and several th-r homespuns. She intends to imitate the style of each of those writers?and bring forth all their peculiar points. It will be a rich treat. Steam Barovi Clarion?The hull of this steamer is a total loss; but the engine may be saved. RESULT OF THE ELECTION, UREAT TRIUMPH OF Tilt PATRIOT CAUSE, The Abolitionists Beat Down, ROBERT H MORRIS, MAYOR OK NEW YORKWe have the tuprenie felicity to congratulate th? countiy on the complete triumph of ihe Patriot cause iu this Imperial city- After an organization ol only three natural days and uights, the Patriots have swept the old Abolition party far behind, and huve driven the whigs and locofocos as far ahead. Robert II. Morris is elected Mayor by a majority of probably 2CC0 Mr Phcnnix?but what is this to be compared to the moral anil ohvsical victory which the Patriots have gained over the .Abolitionists'! We could not ascertain last evening the exact vote of either, but as far as we did learn, it is proba* b!e that the Patriots received 350 votes and the Abo. litionista only 299?giving a clear majority of 51 to the Patriot cause. A fter this who will put any cor.fidence in the lying estimates of the Wall stieet press. " Col. Webb ot the regular army " estimated the Patriots in this city at 25 strong, being nearly four limes as many as the "Corporal's Guard" in Washington. Instead of 25, the Patriots claim 350 that came up to the scratch, besides many thousands that might have come. The corporation is carried by the loeofee s as usual?and as usual the whigs are utterly demolished. Thus we go. Let the Patriots now go to work and organize for the fall election. The raw materials were never in better trim to create a new partyOrganize?organise. Let a " Corporal's guard" and a " Captain's company" be increased until it reach the size of the "grand army," ready to go into the campaign of 1812. New York City Election. I far ill.

Election Riots.?During yesterday afternoon and evening the Sixth Ward was the scene of riot, fun, iury and rowJyism. A band of men, armed with bludgeons, paraded through the Ward, dealing destruction on all who felt disposed to doubt that James Ferris was "the regularly" nominated candidate for Alderman. The Sixth Ward Hotel was turned inside out. Bishop Hughes' premises were assailed, and other dwellings in the Ward more or less injured by stones and brickbats. The military were ordered out about 9 o'clock in the evening and their presence alone saved the Cathedral and other churches of the Catholics frcm being destroyed by this mob. Fifty-six of the rioters were arrested up to 12 o'clock last night, when our paper went to press. The military are still parading the streets, and no doubt other arrest* will be made before morning. The Election.?The whigs have carried the First, Second,Tlird, Fifth, Sixth, Twelfth, Fourteenth, Fifteenth and Sixteenth Wards, for Aldermen. The democrats the Fourth, Seventh, Eighth, Ninth, Tenth, Eleventh, Thirteenth and Seventeenth. Owing to the nu merous tickets ran in the several Wards we have been unable to ascertain the corrrct rote at the early hour that it was necessary to put the Herald to press. Sufficient is known,ho waver, for us to state that Robert H. Morris (democratic) is elected mayor by alwut J000 majority, and the whig* have secured a majority in the Common Council. Digging op the drad ?Whenthe ladies were informed of the danger of the dead in the B. Baptist bHrying yard being indecently dug up and removed, they came together in the crowd todeviae ways and means to protect the dead in their graves ; and to act with the gentlemen in their public meetings, raining money to accomplish this noble object. The ladies obtained at least nine tenths of the names attached to the remonstrance sent to the common council, and the thousands sent to the legislature of this State. They have contributed according to the best of their abilities, more than twenty times, to aid the friends if the gentlemen in, what they have already done. They hire, although adverse to their inclination and public opinion, attended several meetings at the Park expressly to retain the interred dead in their graves. They have visited or watched over the Bethel Baptist burying yard by night and by day, especially since they heard that the 1 ludson h ire insurance Company had threatened to remove all the remains from said burying place, as it must be admitted by all that some of the most unheard of things were said to come from some of the officers of said iucorporatrd body. When their agent came on the ground with men, spades and shovels, with other implements o| war against the living and the Head, profesiing to have a strong power from the Upper ttnd Lower police to back him up, It was the Ladies who over powered and overawed this wonderful agent with his men of war, and made them quit the battle field, when the dead were intarred, and this without shedding a drop of human gore. When it was ascertained that some sacriligious hands were distuibing the dead in the Rutgers street burial place, the women were the firei to batten to the spot and drive Johnson and others from their work fWithout giving more particulars, it may be observed that the impression on the pub lie mind has been greatly favorable to the ladies views. Also, the Honorable Common Council, llis Honorthe Mayor, Alderman Purdy, ,\tc. have acted nobly in this cause in favor of the just rights of the living and ihedead. In other respects the ladies have to regret that their efforts have been little effectual, as no law has been pa ced by the Legislature to protect the dead; therefore they propose aad offer, to carry this business fully out ana protect all the dead, and picvent themjfrom being due up, as they hare been for the last thirty years, and that by obtaining a law front the Legislature against removing the dead. 1 By ob:aininga law from the Legislature against removing the dead. 2 By paying off all just claims against said He'hel Baptist burial place, when they or a suitable tribunal are satisfied of the justice of said claim. 3. By placing a suitable fence around said burial place, having it grassed and otherwise appropriately defended and adorned. aii mis ami more iftey pre ler to do it a.deU by ft liberal public, which they confidently expect Where** the rich** of the city mostly concentrate down town, meeting* in the Park have been proposed, With the hope of obtaining liberal *ub?criptions and donation*.

She appeared to make gn< d headway, going vat under sail and one wneal. The I'nico-n was to accompany her the first 2i hour*. From Washington, lourrespondence of the Herald.] I met a respectable man to-day, near the Treasury Department, and he naked if I had heard the news: that Mr. S. of the Pension office had been removed on account of his having been reported to have med disrespectful language towards Mr Webster. He then proceeded in very unmeasured terms of reprobation, at the violence committed on a man for the expression of opinion, contemning the violence of the executive, for discharging him on such grounds. I didn't see the force of his remarks, and passed ouA man holding his office under an administration, hoc riA nAotf ivst iiiati Hr?a t tr\n fnr v?nV?lir?l\/ oKnain r iKp executive officers, and certainly has no right to complain for being removed for such conduct, though he may have held olfice a long time, and done his duty. His private opinion, if kept to himself, he can indulge in, but if he goes lurther, it ie at his own risk. I don't know what the man may here said or done, but he has himself to blame for i the loss of his office. It is one of the established articles of war, that no officer shall speak disrespectfully of the Executive, and it equally applies, in spirit, to the civil officers of government, i And now for the attacks on Mr Webster. It seems to have become very fashionable of late,

among clerks and others, taking their cue from the Globe and other prints, to abuse in open terms, the Secretary of State. They can continue to do so, at their own peril- The movement against Mr. Webster, by certain cliques and their organs, will have the opposite effect of destroying Mr. Webster with the President, and driving him Iroin the cabinet. So long as he is a member of the cabinet, the President will sustain him, and everv attack coming from friends or opponents of the President, gives Mr-Webster new claims upon the President for his countenance and his support. It enables Mr. Webster to say to him " If you refuse to make that appointment, or if you do make that appointment, it will be considered as evidence that I have no influence in your cabinet, or as a proof clear, while 1 am of your cabinet and laboring for your reputation, you are lending yourself to my personal enemies, who use vour patronage to iiukr war wn my reputation." Therefore Mr. WeDster's enemies do more to strengthen htm by those false attacks, than they could by praising him. Mr. Webster makes an able Secretary of State, hiiu is uisi'utiiKiiii: "is umy io ine enure saiifiaciion of the President and the country. lie may be labor ng under temporary pecuniary difliculiies, but it is the meanest mode of attack for an adversary to striks at and wound a public man on account of his private affairs. ? The present state of our foreign affiirs requires the soundest head in the country at the head of the State Department, and nil will acknowledge that Mr. Webster's continuance there is is indispensable at present. The late attacks upon hitn enlist the sympathy of his friends, and beget friends of those who might be opposed to him It is thought no troops will be ordered to Rhode Island, without a special requisition from the proper authorities there. The Loan Dill is still before the Senate, and an t ffort will be made in that body, to tack on a repeal of the Loan Dill?if that is done, the bill will be lost. The Appropriation Bill will take another week in the House, and the items for foreign missions will give rise to some warm debate and opposition. General Waddy Thompson has by this time arrived at Mexico, in the Ontario, sloop of-war; His instructions are very positive?to demand the immediate release of the American prisoners, and, in case of refusal, to return. Observer. St. Louts, Missouri. (Correspondence of the Herald.) St. Louis, Mo., March 2S, 1S12. Public A {fairs?Politics?Steamboats?JVeta Towns? Catholics?Congress. J. G. Bennett, Esq ? I must again find fault with you for not having some faithful correspondent in this busy place, whose business every week or two shall be to let you know the Western news. You shall now have a few hasty lines, and if you like, print them. Since the newa arrived here about the Cieole matter as viewed in England, our quick Western boys have been cn fire for a row with "the people over the water " A meeting has been called in the city to form a company of cavalry, and a roarer of a squadron with red ceats it will be?England will hear of them, if the worst comes to the wnrat. Such another devil of a rumpus as our leading politicians are kicking up here, about "who shall be Mayor," has never been witnessed in your place en a similar oeeaiiou. The following are the candi' dates if friends of each one are to be believed, they will all be elected. Wilson Primra, foinierly in the legislature, is out as an independent candidate against the field. He is a capital whig, and will be elected. The other two are Edward Charless and George Maguire. The torinor was formerly one of the editors of the Missouri Republican, iu connection with Paschall, now of the St. Louis Era- The nomination of him was made by a small sryiad of office seekers and conscientious but deluded chaps who call themselves "Na ive Americana." Maguire is the loeofoco candidate, but opinion is ifcat he will be distanced by Primm Primin is very popular with all parties, and beiag of French descent, he will get all the French votes and not a small share of the German ones. If elected, as be will be, he will make a first rate Mayor. The present incumbent, Daggett, has other fish to fry, aud can't run The new boat, the Phccuix, whick is re built from the wreck of the Missouri, that was ' burnt here some months since, will be finished iu May. She will be by all odds the largest vessel that ever " pushed a prow" through a Western river. Her length is nearly three hundred feet, and throughout a magnificent model of boat building. One oi our most popular captains, John F. Hunt, will command tier. He was lately secretary of one of the city insurance companies, and thousand* of Eastern folks who have travelled on the Western waters, know him as a gentlemanly and experienced captain. Loeofoco candidates for Congress are on the quick increase here. Judge Roulio, a lawyer named Hudson, Gen Ranney, Judge Lawless, Col. Scott, John Miller, (present member,) and about a doxen more, are out for the spoils of eight hard dollars per day. Who will be elected heaven only knows. Seme speculators have been trying hard to get up a town on ihe other tide of the river, to be called Venice. A great handbill was got out a while ago stating in flaming letters that the sale of lots would come ofT on a certain day. When the day came. Jupiter how it rained, and dry skint are better to the cautious than doubtful chances of speculation, uo one was there. Another day was set, and when it came, down came the elouds again, and no buyers. Since this misfortune we have heard nothing of the city of Venice, nor the advertisements of Hie disappointed owners. A new ferry has been establmhed by our corporation, making three in all. It will be under way aoon and will be good stock. The new Catholic llishop, the Right Rev Father Kcndrick, arrived sometime since, and baa taken bin place in the Order He la by all mean* the naoat learned Divine here, and beloved by all hit lock. The former lluhop, Father Rotati, is now in Rome. Next week Professor J. W. Hall, of the Medical Faculty of the new Medical College attached to the St Louis University, opens the ennrte by a public lecture. The learned Professor has lately returned from Europe. His fine character as a scholar and professor, induce the public to expect ranch from him. Ilia colleagues in the faculty are Prout and Pratbcr, both noted physicians and gentlemen of extensive reading in their difficult profession. Theother medical college is going ah< ad well, and its Dean, Dr. McDowell, is rasping fresher Dnrels everyday. He has keen giving a ci urse of popular lectures on various subjects, dining the winter, and the proceeds of his unusually full houses are to be devoted to finishing the college buildings.

Thomat Olit tr vs. Rihert M Srrrtn.?The defendant i? master of the ?hip Kalamazoo, (the veisel chosen by Colt last summer, in which to deposit the box containing the body of Samuel Adams.) and the plaintiff was a seaman on board of her. The present is an action for assault and battery, Oliver averring that the Captain severely struck him one day while he was at the wheel, engaged in steering the ship, on her recent voyage from Liverpool to this port. Captain M'Serren defended the enit in riflriOD. nnri fffivp an pvhihition ftf tant on/1 falonf worthy of the ablest lawyer. The counsel for plaintiff called a w itness to the stand, who testified to having seen the Captain pass him on the poop, and go into the wheelhouse, soon after which he heard Oliver crying out murder, and aaw the Captain striking him. Thia witness underwent a strong and aearching cross-examination on the part of the Captain, who then called the Carpenter of the ahip to the stand. He testified to being in the wheel-house when the Captain came in. The Capt. told Oliver that he had the ahiptwo points off the wind, and reproached him for inattention in steering when there were so many passengers on board, and the pro viaiona so short. He took the wheel away from him, and made him hasl off his mittens. Oliver then began crying out murder. The Captain said, " what are you crying out murder for'?I hav'nt touched you." He afterwards told plaintiff that he was acting in a manner to provoke him, and get one of those lawyers when they arrived in port to enter an action against him at tha Marine Court. It was shown that the Captain is a strict disciplinarian, but always does the best that is possible for his crew. In summing up. the Captain made a speech worthy of a Demosthenes. He was followed in amis terly manner by Mr. Beers lor plaintiff, who made assertions which, did the Captain not feel that he was a lawyer for the time being, would certainly be followed by coffee and pistols for six. The eloquence and sincerity of the Captain prevailed, the Jury finding for defendant. V. S. Circuit Court.

The stock market has been more heavy to-day, bnt prices have not generally varied much. Delaware and Hudson fell \ per cent; Farmers'Trust, J ; Illinois 6's improved 1 per cent; Ohio 6's 1 ; Long Island } ; Harlem } ; Mohawk 4. Sales of United State* 6 per cents payable in 1844, were made at 97, an improvement of 2 percent. Treasury notes were worse, selling at 1 a 1J discount. New York State 6 per cent stocks are rapidly improving?they have risen 5 per cent within twenty days. United States Bank notes are in demand to-day. The Branch of the Union Bank of Louisiana, at The. bedrauville, has been robbed of $40,600. Bills of thePascoag Bank, at Pascong Village, R. I. are not received at the Suffolk Bank. At Baltimore the Railroad orders are quoted at 59 cents on the dollar, and Virginia money 8 to 14 per cent discount. The affairs of the Virginia bank* are in a very desperate condition, and some of them may not be able to struggle on even until the time fixed by law for their re. turn to specie payments. The condition of the State treasury ii a heavy burden upon the banks. Its obligati ins are dishonored, and thconlv annarent means of nav ing the intereit on the State debt, ii a loan authorized by the Legislature to the extent of $300,000 ; how the money i* to be got tinder the circumstances it is diffi:ult to see In this state of things a Richmond paper asks?" Is Virginia, with a protested Treosu:> draft of $4, in a condition to refuse her quota of the land money V We do not see that a little pre-ent pecuniary embarrassment is any reason why the" Old Dominion" should compromise its highly rhirslrous character and descend to" robbing the exchequer" to raise means, instead of doing it in the legitimate way by taxation. Alabama is also in a dreadful condition. The amount due by the State this year, and to be paid by the banks, is $1,100,000. The capital debt falling due is $811,000- of this about $230,000 has already been anticipated by tha Huntsville and Decatur branches ; leaving about $800,000 to be met, besides $.">84 001 interest exclusive of that on theflebt redeems I.

The ri pittances by the banks are msde in cotton, and their irredeemable paper thrown out in its purchase, cause tho fall in its value. It is a dead weight upon the market. There is in the art of uttering them no paper created at the maturity of which return! are made. Such a state of things could not exist under specie ]l?yrat'ih?. ill? u?u?? mu.i ?.?!' ui mc mkltctl be paid from some other source. The payments recently made in this city on account of the State, ran the rateef Alaboma funds up to 30?they hare now fallen back to 30. We have frequently had occasion to mention the man. ner in which the Merchants' Bank of New Orleana waa sold, through the agency of those in charge of the United StateSiBank, to Elwarl Yorke, nephew of Lippincott.oneof those throngh whose means the suits were brought against Mr Biddle.
