NEW YORK HERALD. *ew York, 1 utwlny, April 19, 1813. TUe lit raid In Georgia. S. A. Holmm? who is.the agent for the Herald in Georgia, desires ualr warn the public of a person by the name of Charlea H. Gilbert, who collected several small sums of money for Mr. II in Savannah and then swarlwouted. Gilbert is said to come fmrn New Jersey, but he cant be a "true blue " In these degenerate days, it isueceeutry to be very cautious. The Htn.u d in Buffalo.?After the first of May our agent in Buffalo, Mr Thomas S IIawks, will be required to dt mand cash down, or in advance, frcm all his subscribers to the Herald. Mr. II. has always kept funds in our hands, and we have every reason tobelitve lie is laithlul and responsible. We have no fault toff.d, except with the habit we understand he has of giving cudit He must reniem tier that the Herald is a cash pxper, conducted inea?iahly on the rush system. Important \rwl I?xptct?-d To-Day. Yesterday, the Britannia steamer for Boston, had been out thirteen da} s, having sailed from Liverpool on the 5th inst. She is a fast boat?has had tavorable winds, and probably may have arrived yesterday at Boston. If to, we shall receive her news this morning- She may bring us the overland mail from India, with important news iroin that quitter. Our Extra will be issued from this ofliee in halt an hour alter its arrival. A'so, important news may be received of the election in Rhode Island, that of the revolutionary party having taken place yesterday. If bloc d lias flowed, we shall issue an Extra?if only beer and brandy, none. We strongly suspect that beer has got the upper hand uf blood, the former being far mere palatable in these peaceful days. KiiRlnnit mid the World. England is certainly, afier the United Stale?, one o; the mo.-: remarkable, original, ambitious, and Wonderful empires that ever rose up to eminence and power in the tide <1 time. Persia, Babylon, Egypt, Macedonia, Home, have all wielded the empire of the world?but they never attained the splendor or the universality which the Anglo-Saxon race, on a litde bit of an island, with vast scientific acquirements, nas achieved in these latter days. But with all ih.s urray ot power, and accumulation of empire, England is in the midst of a mo ,t startling crisis, that will either consolidate, build up and enlarge .her power. 01 dath it to atonia? and, in the fall thereof, a republic may arise out of the pieces. in the n idst of a protound peace with Europe and America, Englatd i? in the midst of a sanguinary ajid ferocious war with a number of Eastern nutions, that constitute one-third of the population of the Globe. From the sources of the lfydaspes, where Alexander the Great nut wi'h his first defeat, to the shores of the Chinese seas, she is engaged in a conflict, comprising the Aflghans.the Hindoo mountain 1 tubes, the Burmese, and the Chinese, as her natural foes. This war is of a more ex'raordinary charactvrthanthe world ever before has seen. Herpoweriu the East seems to shake and tremble before the numbeis of her antagonists?and the broad extent of her field of operation. Hut this is not all. While such is her precarious condition in Asia, she is in the midst of a financial crisis at home. Compelled to Iny on a war tax in a time of European peace, what could she do, if an explosion toi k place in Europe 1 England, at this in)ineut,iu her social and political condition, resembles the lloman empire, before the irruption of the birba; ians?or of the French empire u little bifore me great rtvoiutton 01 uvs r-ngi&nn is a migniy structure, covered with the crust of antiquity, but with all its age and its weakness. One rude shock front some unexpected quarter, might shake the edifice uud tumble all its old battlements into a heap of a uoking ruins. t^he is in a crisis without, and a c isiS within. The first grand explosion will give her a republican government, and ostracise her nobittst. We are getting her poor emigrants now? who knows but, by and by, the young Queen and h r nobility will not seek an asylum here 1 There it no harm in preparing to receive them properly, und we advise all our best hotel keepers to be in readiness. lu the mean time, the news by every steanier from England will now be highly important ?nothing more so.

This fact proves that whenever cotton fall? in this country to a certain point, suybor7 cent?, a new market for American colion can be found tr. China. And so far from cotton ever re tching the United States from Iudia, we can, at lo'.v rates, compete India at her own door?, a- it were in the cultivation and shipment of cotton.

Th* Wilfok henerit?Ch*i?tiaw Cha*itt We with especially lo call the attention of our renders to the benefit which it is proponed to give, at the Park Theatre on Friday next, to A- M. Wilnon.the projector and manager of the late unfortunate Upera House. -Mr. Wilson prosecuted us for a libel, but we muet return good for evil. Mr- Wilson in a native of this city, and early obtained considerable eminence in his profession, as a tragedian. This we say in spite of the libel suit. It ia, we presume, fresh in the recollection of all the inhabitants of our metropolis, that after the first conflagration of the National Theatre, which put an end to the connrc tion of Mr. Jaiues Wallack. with that house, Mr. v\ lison was tne prime mover and projector ol the National Opera House, which rose, Phenix like, (not Phenix the Mayor) out of the ashes of i's predecessor, only to share, after a brief career of spl ndid popularity, the same untimely fate. No matter about the libel suit?we must say so out ol Christian charity. It is not, however, perhaps, so generally known, that Mr. Wilson embarked in the Opera House the whole ol a comforiable independence, which he had realized by the laborious industry of years; and which was uttetly swept away by the melancholy catastrophe that destroyed the building?the libel suit to the contrary notwithstanding. Mr- Wilson's career as man ager, was marked throughout by extreme liberality, except ib the libel suit ; the piece which was present-d to the public, n the opening of the theatre, " The Pilgrim of Love," by Mr. Horn, wusgot up with unusual splendor, and though not altogether successful? (in disrespect it resembled the libel suit against us)?was produced in a manner highly creditable to the parties. This opera was succeeded by " Don Giovanni," of M >zart, that excellent and sterling opera, got up throughout and performed in a style entirely superior to any thing of the kind which had appeared before in the United States, with the exception of the Garcia co i pany. " The Gazza Lardra," and other operas of equal popularity and merit, followed ; and so much had already been eflected toward creating a general and correct taste for operatic ntucic. in the community at large, that, in spite of the libel suit, great results might have been looked for with Eotne confidence, had it not been for the calamitous event which overthrew the whole concern, and with it swept away the whole of Mr. Wilson's for'unes, and ruined his hopes even in the prospective libel suit and all. We rejoice, therefore, on the Christiau'principle of returning good for evil, to tee the scheme of this benefit ; we deeni it well deserved, and trust it will be well and generously supported ; for the gentleman in whose bthaif it is proposed, unquestionably possesses claims upon the favor, and we might say the juitict of the community, to whose amusement, in the highest s-nse of the word, he to long and faithfully administered. II the generous proceeds do not enable Mr Wilson to continue his libel suit against us, merely to please our Wall street friends, it w ill iuruish him with the means to get along, peaceably and quietly,though a dirty and degenerate world, where a poor man can find few friends?and a destitute ex-manager is laughed at by those who formerly used him to gratify their own malevolence. We trust Mr. W. will have a good ^benefit in spite of the libel suit he instituted against us, and thus we try to heap coals of fire on his venerable head, and to put gold and silver into his empty pocket. Passekocrs for Kcrope.?That fine packet ship, the Siddons, sails 011 the 25 h instant, with nearly forty passengers We believe she hua only two bt-rih? unengaged. This speaks well for that ship, and indeed for her companion also. The recent delays and accident to the steamships have produced a bit of a revolution in the passenger business to Europe.

Fourier C*t.rr ratio*.?The believer* of Fourier, under the tirst Presidency of Professor Brisbane, celebrated his birth day, last evening, with great social, literary, and physical eclat. Tney had | speeches, wines, cakes, ducks, wit, toast, and cold water. This sect of philosophical believers have some CHpitul notions. Their idea of social reform, intends to introduce a new and improved system of civilization. To teach women to cook soup und sing cavatinas?to wash a floor and dance the gallopade equa'ly well?to darn their huibanu's stockings and piay Tlmlberg's music on the grand pfano? to raise green peas and speak French?to cultivate young cabbages and the Italian language at one and the same time?are the leading features of this sjstem. In fact, it proposes to "make labor attractive," or in other words to unite dirt with divinity through all the relations of human life, and particularly in agriculture. Good luck to them. The only difficulty we anticipate is, that in one of those splendid Industrial Palaces, with 1,0(10 acres of land, and of 300 men, women and children U3 stockholders, they would take too long a time to debate and take a vote on th* important question as to "who should do the cooking, washing, ironing, and scouring?" and luiildi, IIICICIUIC, V Iiu |'?v?v^ inuvii in a lwnj ?i Confess an J the Park meetings sometimes do. However, we are in favor of this Fourier system ?we are in favor of every new system?in fact, we are in favor of every thing under the sun, or beyond it either. We are shockingly liberal. Ax Omex?

Th* New Coki-oratio* psr'tritst? * ^ u* Bloodt Sixiii.?In the present excitement a mong ollice seekers and oflice holders, relative *' bloody Sixth ward election, we present the fc>UdW' ing contented contests previously decided upon:? In 1S33, at the charter election, Dr. Khinelan?U ^ and Deank* McCarthy were elected Alderman ana Assistant of tne Sixth Ward, and took their seats as such- Their return was contested on the ground that during the canvas* of the votes, persons who were notnnder oath handled the ballots and assisted in the canvass, an J in the making out of the returns. Tne returned and contesting candidates were heaid by Counsel before the respective Boards. In the Board of Aldermen, upon evidence, and after argument, a resolution was adopted vacating the seat of Alderman Rhinelander, and ordering a new election to fill the vacancy. The ground of decision stated in the resolution was that unsworn persons had aided in the canvass?and the special flee tion was ordered to fill the "unexpired term ot Alderman Khinelander. Mr-McCarthy immediately resigned his seat in the Board of Assistants, and the other charier officers eh c'ed on the aame ticket with him, and Alderman llhinelander followed his example. In the same year, aad at,the same election, Wm. Day was elected Assistant Alderman of the Eiglnh ward?his return was contested on the ground of alienage. It appeared in evidence .that on the 21 day of the election Mr. Day was naturalized His seat was also Tacaled? he being an alien during part of the election, and a new election was ordered, "it being impossible" (as the record says) to distinguish between the votes which were legal and those which were illegal, or in other werds, those given for William Day, the alien, and William Day, the cilia-n. In this case also, the special election wa? ordered to fill the " unexpired term" of Mr Day. Both of these special elections were ordered by "the new Common Council," us it is ordinarily termed. The only legislative provision ^.on the subject, which we have been able to find, is the following It is contained in the Charter of the city, as follows:? " Section 6. The Board of Aldermen shall havo power to direct a special election to be held to supply the place of any Ald-rman whose seat shall become vacant by death, removal Irom the city, resignatian or otherwise.. And the Board of Assistants shall also have power to direct a special election to supply any vacancy that may occur in the Baard of A;s.slants ; and in both cases, the person elected ta supply the vacancy shall hold his scat only for the residue of iht term of office of his immediate predecessor. In the ease of Dr. Khittelander and Mr. McCarthy the Common Council was democratic in both boards, and the gentlemen removed were of the same politics We find also, that in 180S, while De Witt Clinton was Mayor of tiie city, and before the Aldermanland Assistant had been ullowed to lake their seats, a protest was entered against the return of the Inspectors of the Sixth Ward for charter officers, on ac count of illegality in the votes not being "properly counted, and for other causes. The Board of Aldermen then resolved, by a vote of .11 to 5, that they had the powers to 'determine the.legality of charter elections, although it was contended by the counsel for the officers who claimedtheir seats that the return of the Inspectors was conclusive. The Board ordered a new election in the Ward, and De Wit Clinton, the Mayor, refused to swear in the officers who claimed their teats. This decision was made under the old charter, but it is applicable to the present dispute, to thow the course pursued by the Common Council in settling contested elections. After all, it seems very uncertain how this question will terminate. Both parties seem to be as obstinate as it is possible to be?and riots are on the rise. Miss Cushman's Theatre.?The arrangements for running up this splendid place of entertainment are going on rapidly ; and we are pleased to learn that in all probability thi3 genuine Temple of the Muses, if not of the Gtaces, will be in the " full tide of successful experiment" by next winter. Miee Cushman starts on the right system; her details are admirable ; the site is unequalled; she has many warm friends, and the thing must go ahead. Nothing can stop it. Chatham Treatre.?The splendid piece of Zanoni, was again produced last evening with eminent success. It is to be repeated this evening, in addition to Richard Third by Mr- Ktrby.

Bloody Murdeh?Not so fast if you please?we only mean that the Bowery Amphitheatre is now opened?that the great North, (son of the North pole) is engaged, that they exhibit some splendid horses and feats in horsemanship, and that all this classical amusement is "bloody murder" to almost every other theatre in town.

The pfiriiculsrs, as they have reached u?, are hrieflv as follows: A neoro bov named Bill nwnoW by Mr. John Thomas, armed with a large a^e, proceeded to the chamber where his master und mistress Wi re sleeping, and attack'd and mangled them in a most shocking manner, cutting the arm and breast of the wsrran, and breaking the arm of the man in two places, and indicting numerous other wounds, of which both, it is thought, will die! lie then deliberately set fire to the dwelling house, stable, and a!! the ou.buildings. A near neighbor, named Benson, alarmed by the none and the burning buildings, was hastening to the house, when Hill met him and despatched him with the axs of which he still retained possession, rut i il his head and threw the body into the horning birn !! L?y this time a considerable number of the neighbors had assembled Bill, however, succeeded in keeping ihem all nt I ay with the axe, until a gun wa< procured, when he waa shet and thus disabled from further resistance. He was then seized and bound, and taken to Newport where he was lodged HI JillExpskimcxtai. mm ax Tkrhitory?We stated in a late number that a treaty had been negotiated with the Sieux by which a very I irge and extensive tract ol country hid come into the possession of Government. \V e were aware at the time what the object of Government was in making this pur chase, but from prudential reaons, we concluded it beat to withhold the stat. meat. Ai we tee it, at Uu->t partially, mentioned hy those engaged in making the treaty, any objection to our speaking particularly r n the subject is of course rernofed. It is p opostd by Government to make another pureliase Irom the Sacs and Foxes, embracing all they lay elaim to on the South aad West of this, and to place the fa in the New Territory that has just been obtained from the Sioux They are then to be set oir as a distinct In. ian Territory.

The President is to appoint the principal officers, as hsnow d es in the Territories ; and the citizen Indiana are to elect their saiuorofficers. In i this way inducements are to be held out to the Indiaus to become civilized. Erery one should wish i tu sco'so humane an experiment aa the o?e in contemplation abundantly successful.

J The complimentary bill given 10 Mr. Clay ln?? night at the Washington A??embly Rooms was well attended; and the company whs composed of a great number o( distinguished individuals, members of both Houses of Congress, foreign ministers, gentlemen attached to their respective legations, offi cers of the army and navy, citizens of Washington, Baltimore, and the neighboring counties of Maryland and Virginia. The display of female beauty was remarkably tine. Baltimore contrihu'ed Iter share in this respect. Amongst the fashionable p trues from yrur city 1 noticed Mr and Mrs Reverdy .lolutson and other ladies accompanying them Although there were many distinguished officers of the army and navy present, as well as foreign ?. umsicro auu i??ir uuaciirg, yei as none 01 inem , apoeared in uniform or in diplomatic costuine, the bd)? room did not appear as animated and brilliant as oil twine previoui public occasions which 1 have witnenfti'd in the metropolis. The ball was however a very sp.'endid and brilliant assemblage of ladies and gentleiien from ddferent parts of the Union?all cordially uu/tingto pay a deserved compliment to a beloved and illu.-trious stdte.-mun, whose presence und urbanity Relighted everv one, and gave life and spirit to the dancing and other amusements of the e veuiiig. Mr. Clay entered the ball room about half past nine o'clock, leaning tin the arm of General Seaton, the Mayor of Washington, and followed by the Cornmitt' * of Arrangemcw*. The distinguished ex-Senator bowed gracefully, and .smiled on every one us he passed tnrough the gay circles I need not tell you that Mr Clay was at this moment "the observt d t f all observers." He was greeted by the smiles of the entire company The looks of every one, but '-specially the ladies, showed that Mr Cl.iv is a decided favorite. Soon after Mr. Clay's rn/rce tin- dancing commenced wi'h great spirit, and the room exhibited ? gay and brilliant scene. Those who did not join in the epiightly dance were not, I a??ure you, undelighted spectators of those who "tripped on the light fantastic toe," with so much apparent ea-e and elegance. Cotillions and waltzes succeeded each other in ijuick succession The dancers were a happy and agreeable mixture of the young and middie aged; and they all appeared to enjoy themselves exceedingly. Among the most distinguished gentlemen whom 1 noticed at tins splendid nali were (1 cannot pretend to give you a full list) M ijor General tjcoit, Commander in-Chief of the Untied States Army, Major General Jessup, Count ifodtsco, the Belgian Minister, Mr Hudson, of the British Legation, two other gen'lemen attached to Ijord Asbburion's Embassy, Mr. Granger, Ex-Postmaster General, Senators, Preslon, Evans, Archer, iVc. Most of the Honor ao.e oeiiaiors unu rut nioers 01 i^ongress auenucu with the ladies o( their respective familiesThe entertainments in the two refectories were abundant ar.d excellent, doing great credit to the cockn and caterers-- Tne dancing was kept up till 2o'clock, and the company altogether spent a most delightful evening. It is a delicious event to find that while trade is so depressed?money so scarce?so many merchants breaking?Congress so negligent of their duty?aud the government bo discredited?it is pleasant, we tay, to find a little coterie of happy beings somewhere. llere is an Oasis in the midst of the Lybian desert. Although there may be a great deal of dis content and distress, caused by Congress and the politicians, yet these happy philosophers seem only to raise tn joy as the country sinks into trouble. This is true philosophy. Let's have a Clay ball here. Buffalo. (Correspondence or the Herald.] Buffalo, April 13, 1S42Important Question to be decided in Bu ffalo?Is the Herald im moral paper cr not??Great Excitement. J. G. Bennett, Kb a. Dear Sir? I have to inform you, that the " moral war" on the Herald has extended to Buffalo, and that in a few days at the farthcrest, the two great parties will meet, at which time a regular fight will come off. You will see by a notice in that highly moral piper, the "Buffalo Commercial Advertiser," if you have the honor of an " exchange," of this evening, a call for a meeting oi the " Young Mens' Association" (Lite rary) signed by its President, by a resolution of the directors, (four of whom deem the Herald a very immoral pa;ier, and one of the four acknowledges that he never read it!) to discuss the morality cf the Herald. The present board of directors, by a large vote, decided to add the Herald 10 the list of newspapers now on the files of the reading room, aud accordingly forwarded you the money for one year's subscription. Some time ago, a petition was presented to the board by a large number of our moral men, asking to have the Herald stricken off, as it was highly obnoxious to their sense of virtue, religion and morality, the board refused to comply, and hence the call for a general meeting of the Association on Saturday evening next You will probably not be uiueh surprised if they proscribe your paper, when you financier* in a moral point of view. My advice ia not worth much, but if 1 were iu your place 1 would continue to print the lleiald. 1 an* informed that the Commercial ha* cut your exchange, and that their reporter buv* it regularly from your agent, Mr Hawk*; 1 will there | tore vend you a copy that you may seethe notice. The probable cccict of the " war" in buffalo is, that in addition to your cxeessive immorality, you are a'so obnoxious to the proprietors of the Commercial, a* yon no doubt circulate as many papers in this city as they do. The thing is rich from beginning 10 end, and iis history will be highly interesting to your readers heie. I hp- some able pen will lumish you with the details, as I think the world should be advised of the rise, progress, and end of the "moral war in Buffalo;" besides, handing down to fa tie some of its heroes.

HrowThis ih SB action unique in its kind, brought to recover the amount of a draft which the defendant had endorsed by placing upon it, in pencil mark, the figures 198. Mr. Brown was foim.rlg president of the Bank, and while so adopted the number in question as authority to the discount clerk to pass the notes or drafts on which he placed it. The present action is for a draft ?f fl 108, drawn by Park Benjamin, (one of the firm of Oto. Dearborn fc Co) on Charles J. Ilendee, of Boston,in favorof G 0. h Co. Tne note was otfeiel for discount at the regular mooting of the Beard of Directors of tha Butchers 4- Drover.' Bank on the'JOth January. 1S37, but rejected by the Board, and discounted by order cf the President, (defendent in this suit) on the 38th of that month. The draft wa. dishonored when it became due. Mr. Brown was bot elected s director for the nest year, and wassucceedadinthepresidency. The present action is brought to recover the amount with interest, less seme lit;le that his been obtained on it from Mr Ilendee. The action ii baaed ou tw o grounds. Mr. Brown cashing it contrary to th? wishes of the directors, thereby rendering himself liable, and alto a* having placed the number 128 on it, which he acknowledged to a conli iential clerk to be hia endorsement la proof of this, Mr. Poe, who had been discount clerk of the bank from I.Ol to 1B3T, testified aa foliowi" 1 received instructions from Mr. Brown relative to paper of this kind. On the first occasion he cameto me with some notes in bis hand, and pointed to the endorsement 133 He said, 'you tee that endorsement, sir?them flguros?that it the number of the Bank 1 acknowledge that to he my end rsement, and whenever that appears you must recognize it as my endorsement. I tell you this, sir, to inske >on a witness, in case any thing should u pp-u tome that you may take care of the inten st ofthu luuk. for I hold securities to caver all endorsementscf this character. My reason for not endorsing in my whole name is, that It would exceed the directors' i 'spi i -ibilily beyotid what is allowed by law-' Mr. Brown spoke to m 'several times in this way. and seemed desirous of impressing it upon my mind. The draft now she a n, is one ol those that passed through my hands. I received it from Mr. Brown between discouutdaya, a ol believe the figures 1*9 were placet there by him, the figures iiS represented the number of the Bank buil ling at lb st lime in the Bowery, but theinslituti >n wjs subs< quently removed to the corner oi Oratitl street, two or three doors below.1) Paper to a large amount was found hy the directors marked with this number. Mr. Brown, in answer to them, said he got half per err*. for cashing it, and felt himself morally bound to see that noias having such numbers on were paid. He being perfectly responsible, it was allowed to pesr, although the procedure was in direct violation of law." For the defence it was contended that a man could nat render himself liable on a bill of exchange in any other way than by a positive eudor-rmimt, and that a sy mbol placed on an instrument is piralit 1, M best, to the mark of a man who cannot write his name, and which is only legal when attested *t the time by a subscribing witness. It was contended, furthermore, that Mr. Brown was fully authorized to discount paper, fur propi r cause, between the meetings of the board This latter was acknowledged to a certain extent, but denied us i pplying to paper thrown out by the diriclorn.

The District Attorney stated that the prosecution was ready to proceed with the cause, if the court considered thutihe ends of public justice demanded a second hearing of the case after the termination of the first trial. The Ricorder asked the District Attorney if any new facts had btcn elicited since the last trial. He replied none that he was aware of. The Court then stated that from the full and elaborate manner in which thu case was presented to the Jury at its previous hearing, they consideied that the eBda of public justice would not be subserved by a new trial.? They ware ready to try the cause, and although they did not wish to direct thu;u mile prosequi should be enteted, they would most cheerfully conseut to such a course on application of the District Attorney,believing that a further prosecution of the case was uncalled for and entirely unnecessary. The District Attorney stated that John Haggerty fc Sons, the complainants in the case, desired that the prosecutionWhould stay allfurther^proceedingsand he,therefore moved that a nolle prosequi be entered and the defendants be fully and honoiably discharged and their recognizances c incelled, unless the counsel for defendants made some objection Mr. Oriffen, oneoi the counsel for Amory & Leeds, replied that they had nothing to say upon the subject, having had no participation in the courae pursued by the District Attorney.
