T We have at last moved all the materials connect- l' eu wun mis esiaonsnmeiu uuo our new and commodious building, on the north-weal corner of N'as- ^ sau and Fulton streets, where we shall transact all * our business from this day forward, henceforth and tor ever; that is, so long as it pleases Providence to " spare us to this wicked world. With such an extensive establishment as that of 1 the " New York Herald," it cannot be expected that " all its complicated machinery can be brought into ^ jierfect order, and made to work smoothly within ^ 'M hours; and whether it is expected or not, it can" not be done. We have now all the materials brought together in the Herald building necessary to form " one of the most complete newspa|>er establishments in the world ; and in less than one week all the details and parts of this immense machine will be in ^ the most perfect order, and work to perfection. We have a large stock of entire new types, four a new double cylinder presses, a new engine, new boilers, Jcc. Arc. Arc., and the whole materials are f constructed and arranged throughout in such a supe- o rior manner, that nothing short of a terrible lire can impede our progress, until the arrival of an J earthquake or the Millennium, always provided the latter does not take place until Anno Hoinini 18H0. J 111 the mean time, we request our renders and friends to exercise a little patience and much industry.

Citizen* upon Colombia? j President Tyler, p How is it that nothing has yet been done towards t< adjusting the claims which some of the people of !j this country have on the late Government of Co- c , lomhia, S. A. c It will be remembered that this Government was '* dissolved in the year 1H3I, and then reverted into the existing governments of Aqundor, New Clrena- C da, and Venezuela. Now we have had a lapse of Pj eleven years since the gross spoliations were coiainitted u|n>n the pro|?erty of our citizens by Bolivar; '[ und yet nothing has been done. Many of those tl whose property was taken and destroyed, have " long since passed to their last home ; but many ^ ol them have left widows and orphans to whom the g amount of the money would lie a greut lilt-smug at d this time. There are hundreds ot these eases, to be found in different parts of the Union; many of them are now unable to bring forward proofs of the recti- S tude ol their claims upon those existing govern* liients; and unless something is done shortly, by way of settling this matter, the whole of the proofs |j that might now he obtained by the claimants wi j h pass from their possession and heeome useless. We wish that our government would look seriously into this matter, and take the necessary ste|?s to c have it settled. Huglund and France have long since adjusted all the claims which their citizens s have had u|h>n those governments, and the monies * have la-en |>aid ; hut our government lias absolutely 1 up to this hour done nothing whatever that has transpired in the premises. The government of r< < leneral Jackson did nothing; that of Mr. Van Burt-n followed in the footstep* of his illustrious prede cessor, and did nothing ulto. We have sent out to 1' those countries one Chargt <f Affairtt nfter another at a very great expense, and what have they done 1 j, They have actually never made the first movement tr towards adjusting these claims. tt Now, therefore, we hope that as noon as members \ of Congress get done quarrelling and snarling, and ^ disgracing themselves, and acting like school boys, jhey will turn their attention to this matter. Captain Tyler stands ready to back them by every ^ means in his power. His manly, patriotic, pure, rt' and independent course hitherto pursued, with a sin- l);i gle eye to the greatest good of the greatest number, '? is a guarantee that he will do every thing that is ar just and for the benefit of the country at large. ce One tiling is certain?that those South American governments will never do any thing unless they are w driven into it by a peremptory demand from our go- to vernment. Why not, then, have a mixed commission to examine and adjust all these claims 1 After this, those governments should he compelled to give bonds bearing interest, and payable ?t some specific period. This would immediately satisfy the eluimants, and relieve their wants. Come, then, here is j. a fine field open for Congress lo work in, anil wi|** otl some of the stigma their recent course has entailed on them. al y JtrrxiK Noah's Ciiakiik.?'I'll charge lo the < ?rand Jury in the Court of Sessions yesterday, was given by Judge Noah.

Now the fuel is, that Mr. Marshall never related ay slander against the " Courier," because we never thlished uny slander about it. The whole gist ot le matter is this. The " Courier" came out and in allost so many words charged upon certain members of ongr.'ss that they had been bribed by payments of iuu,\?ju * urn, puiu uy nrmsn agrnm in orurr 10 >uir own a certain measure. Thisstatement we copied 'omtlie "Courier" and republished. The members 1 Congresswe presume seldom seethe "Courier," nd took no notice of the original slander, until the Herald" readied Washington with a copy of it reuhlished from the "Courier." Then a mujority of Item treated the remarks of the "Courier" with ilent and utter contempt. Mr. Marshall, however, use in the House and pronounced the statement in in- " Courier" to be a gross falsehood. Audit is for this alone that Col. Webb, "ol the egular army," now comes out on the eve of Mr. larshall arriving in this city, with a violent and lillingsate attack on that eloquent gentleman ; and nerely because he has joined the Temperance Socity, Webb makes that the ground of additional abuse; barging upon him that he has been intemperate and mpruderit in his past life. Now this comes with a ery queer kind of grace from a |ierson like him "ol he regular army," who has squandered over $"200,IK) in all sorts of stock jobbing and such like gamImg transactions, ridiculous speculations, $>'10 diners, and till kinds of foolish and preposterous exruvagance, according to bis own statement before re Court of liankruptcy. lteally, this is the most itighahle specimen of morality that has ever issued om the moral Wall street press, or the "regular rmy."

Gtnlknun of' the Uraiul Jury :? The Court has great satisfaction and pleasure in announcing to you the continued decrease of crime and misdemeanor in our city at the Calendar for the present term plainly indicates, there being hut fif leen new eases in prison. OlFences of a higher grade growing out oi a spirit of s|ieculation?fraudulent conduct, extruvagunt and reckless habits among what is called the more intelligent clasB of tiiWM**fv liuvp vuttipr innrpuu>fi lulu urkiU of u subordinate character, together with breaches I of the public iieuce are evidently on the decline, 'l'he benign progress of the Temperance cause and the j s|**euy trials andjirompt punishments following convictions, together with the vigilance of the consti tuted authorities may he considered as the leading causes of this great reform, and we can safely declare that no city in the world of our mixed population lias less crime to complain of, or can boast of greater internal tranquillity. In our recent municipal election there have been some outbreaks, and similar disturbances may be anticipated in luture contests, but a devoted attachment to the laws, as the great controlling principles of all our actions, together with a just and conciliatory snirit, will enable us, 1 hope, to jmiss through these ordeals, without disturbing the public peace or outraging public morals. It is made the daty of this Court, to call your attention at eaeh term, to any infraction of certain laws adopted for the safety and better government of the community. These laws are against the erection of wooden buildings within the fire limits; against taking more than seven per cent interest |>?r annum on loans, commonly called the usury laws; against the selling of or insuring Lottery tickets; against the grand iury or any member promulgating the fnet, that a oil! of indictment for felony has been ordered against a person, until such person shall have been arrested, and against frauds at elections. The object of these statutory provisions, is fully understood by vou, and the experience which many of you have ii'i discharging the duties of a grand juror, render it unnecessary for the Court to go into further explanations, as to the extent of your powers. In the course of our official relations with the Police Department, it has been ascertained that persons have been discharged from the Penitentiary liefore the term for which they were sentenced had expired, and the keeper alleges that it was done by order of some of the Magistrates of the City. Persons arraigned in the Police Court (under what is called the Vagrant Act, arc regularly tried and sentenced by that tribunal, and the record of such conviction is deposited in the office of the Clerk of the City and County. After such trial and sentence, the power to pardon is vested solely in the executive of the Slate by the constitution. If disorderly persons were sent to the Penitentiary, to remain there during the pleasure of the committing magi* trate, the authority to release would lie equivalent to the power of condemning ; but after conviction and sentence according to law, the Executive alone h:is the power to pardon. As great abuses may grow out of tbis undelegated right, it is recommended to the grand jury to take the subject into consideration in order to ascertain the extent, and to a|>ply the remedy to such abuses. It is further suggested to take up the prison eases lirst, the Court being anxious todis|M>se of them promptly. The ordinance of the corporation passed May 2, KSI iiinlii-a it the diltv lit tile Ivi'myr nf llw> Citu - ?j - ? Y'V Prison to separate persona committed tor examination from the hardened felons. It is of equal, if not of higher importance, to have room*prepared in prison in which witnesses should he confined, who not being charged with rritne, and detained to further the ends of justice, should not he chumticd with conviets, and he corrupted by such associations. This should also particularly apply to the confinement .of apprentice hoys and young females. it appears to he the general wish, that this court should occasionally hring to the consideration of the tlrand Inquest, whatever may relate to the cause of justice, or to the interests and welfare of the community, in connection with our loenl or municipal concerns; and although there may he manv subjects upon which, gentlemen, you may not lie called ti|?on t to act onteinliy, there are nevertheless many of great ( interest which, it spread before the people through this channel, inav serve to correct abuses, ttntl introduce many salutary measures ol reform. (hi< subject ol de?-p importance to the cause of I civil and criminal jurisprudence, is an evident do. crease in the ntiuiher of intelligent jurymen. It is ' supposed that in this great rity there are not more than two thousand persons coni|?etent to do jury duty?while firemen and exempt firemen, otlicen unit soldiers of uniform companies, persons in the service of the gcncr.il government, ministers, tenchi crs, physicians, aliens, and those employed in furnaces, gas works, \ c., together with all who arc excused from serving in consequence of not being worth a c?rfnin sum over and above what will pay their debts, number full r>:\ ruors txnof the most useful and intelligent claw of the coimnmuty, who sre legally excused and relieved from what is deanifd an onerous duty. With this limited number of jurymen to transact all the civil and criminal business of the city, the cause of justice lalmre under serious inconvenience j and it frequently, nay uniformly happens in this court, that there are seldom more than twenty-six jurymen "sworn out of a panel ' of eighty-four eitixen* summoned. The difficulty, ; gentlemen of the tirnnil Inquest, ariers from the fact that ptrors are not allowed to receive eoiupeAmtion for their services and attendance in this city and'county, as they are tit every other county ol the Mate, 1 ii(tlie vrarjltfitl, a tiill iwas introduced , into the Assembly by h m< inbcr from this city, and advocated with great /cal, providing a |>erdieiii ;dI jinv nice l?>r sitting jurors 111 ihis eitv and county, | i <,ii oiiilir,^ w iili tin- iiinuniliori/fd to li | .ml in | olio rooiiniirs Tin' Mil passed that bouse liya volte ofiri to 2, .Hid wu.-seut to the Suiatc, when a remonstrance against its passage was transmitted by the Common Council, and tne senators from this city never called it up lor consideration. It is thus that the legislation lor the benefit o| the city is made to corr.'spnnd with the wishes of the Corporal ion, instead of carrying out tile interest and wishes of the people at lurge. It is a well settled principle in all , pist governments, tliut the time and services ol citizens shall not lie devoted to public purposes without 1 an udeipiate remuneration. II, therefore, it is in- I consistent with the spirit of our free institutions to ( command and control the services of citizans for public purposes, without compensation, and inflict |>eiialttes for a refusal to obey the mandates of the i Court, how much more unjust should it be deemed | to summon jurors to decide iu civil emu, in which they have no immediate interest, and sacrifice their time and comfort in adjudicating the various cases of litigation, which constantly arise between citizen and citizen in this great commercial city. It is moreover a grievous burden for the poor mechanic and laboring man, whose interests, and whose family must necessarily sulier. while he is gratuitously serving as a piror throughout a whole term. My allowing u dollar a day for the actual service of each juror, as in other counties of the State, and in other states ol the Union, and the jury deciding by their verdict wbetherthe county, the plaintiff or defendant

shall pay the jury fee, some inducement will exist for many exempts to consent to serve, and the result will ha that a full pane) will always he in attendance, and no iurymun will be required to serve longer than a single week in each term ; be sides, the adoption of this principle would materially tend to abridge the number of vexatious and.frivolous complaints. The revised statutes fuUyTcgulate and define the duties imposed upon clergymen, and others in authority, in carrying into effect the civil hihI rdigipus ceremony of marriage. It is made a misdemeanor f?y law, and punishable by fine and imprisonment, to marry jwrsons nnih-r nee or iiiirtiex iin<l?-r iniv l?[rnl iniiwdi. merit, aii idiot or a lunatic. Ministers of religion are required to know the names of the (wirties, and their place of residence; they are required to have two attesting witnesses, and to know the names and residence of those witnesses; also to keep a resistor in all cases; to give certificates, and the identity of the |?irties must he clearly established and proved to the satisfaction of the clergyman or magistrate. 1 regret to say. gentlemen of the grand inquest, that these just requirements are very imperfectly carried out by many authorised to perform this ceremony. In the course of trials in this Court forbigumv.it has a|>peared in evidence, that the clergyman had adopted few, if any, of the precautions required by the revised statutes; that he neither knew the names i f the (rirties, nor their identity; that he had no witnesses, and cave no certificates. The consequences of this illegal course, this loose and dcinordiziug maimer of |>erformiugn most important civil an.I religious ceremony, have already proved fatal to t|je peace ami happiness of families. Mules and tem des of tender years, without the knowledge of their parents and friends, contracting hasty and romantic attachments, have found clergymen and magistrates willing to unite them iii the bonds of holy wedlock, without the restrictions pointed out by law, and have thus ruined the proHjiecta and happiness of the parties for life. 1 luring the March term, a spectacle wus presented to this Court, lully confirming these views. A hoy wus brought out from one of the cells of the orison charged by his wife with hnving abandoned her, when it was clearly npparent, that he was incapable of maintaining himself, or of understanding (lie deep obligations, cares and duties of the'marriage state, and who had evidently been persuaded by interested parties, to place himself in that predicament. ( real excitement has recently prevailed in this city, extending even to a breach of the peace, in relation to removing the rcniuins of persons interred in burial grounds, the trustees believing they had a legal, if not equitable right to dispose of the ground, leaving the friends of the dead to remove their hones or throwing them promiscuously iu boxes for interment in any other place. The subject is one calculated to awaken a very general spirit of discontent and opposition, which has ulrcady led to public meetings, and is producing a settled anil determined resistance in several directions. History does ample justice to the ancients, who raised magnificent pyramids and obelisks, in honor of their dead, so substantial and enduring, that thousands of years have elapsed, and they still r-'niain undisturbed. Nor do we find instances in i i - it i ?i ?i ? i* ?i - uaruarotis ages so chiu'u, as ? r into in tnese eniigiuened times, of congregations selling their hurial grounds and desecrating their grave yards, huddling together the bones of their ancestors without distinction of age or sex, in order to procure a large sunt of money from those who lay the foundation of their warehouses on the vaults und graves of ^heir brethren and friends. The equitable and moral light to pursue this course, may well be doubted; the public mind is much exasperated on this subject, and the practice should he discontinued,by law. The condition of the public burying grounds for the reeeption of the poor, are so insecure that they are accessible to those who make a business of selling bodies to the anatomists. As the city possesses large tracts of ground on the island, it is the duty of the public authorities, to select several ample squares in good positions, properly secured by stone walls anil well guarded, as burial places for the poor, and I trust gentlemen that your attention will be humanely directed to.this subject, as part of your public dutiea. It is understood that an abolition convention is to be held in this city during the present month, and it has been avowed in the otHcial Gazette, attached to the interest of the delegates about to assemble, that the question of repealing the Union between the North and the Sotuh. will be ojtenly discussed on that occasion. This lias been in part contradicted, butcoupled with a declaration that no violence shall prevent the discharge of their dntv. It is possible that the objects and intentions of this convention may have been misrepresented, for it is difficult to believe, that even fanaticism carried to its fullest extent, could have the boldness to broach doctrines ot the most treasonable import, in the midst of a population devotedly attached to the Union of the States. The people have an undoubted right to arscnible and discuss any question connected with the ntaintenanee of their own rights, and the preservation of our free institutions; but it is unreasonable to suppose that, in anv attempt to carry out the objects of this iniecting, however ostensibly humane they may be, that such convention will be jicrrnitted to suggest, much lcssdiscuss, a project embracing a dissolution of our ltH|>py form of govt ,-nment. Should the experiment however he made, which would evidently tend to a disastrous breach of the public peace, it will he your duty to present the agitators, and indict every person whose active agency ntav lead to such results, and thisCourt by the rigid enforcement of the laws, will convince any body of men. making this city the theatre of their deliberations, that their objects and intentions must be strietly legal, rational and justifiable.

In the course of a short argument between Nelson I) Chase, Ksq.. and the acting district Attorney. 1 Slialer, relative to the postponement of a trial until the succeeding day, .lodge Lynch stated that the I Court intended to adopt a rule whereby 11 calendar would he made up on the Friday preceding the term, containing all the case*to be tried during the t -nil.

I'rocerilliig* In CoiiKi'tait?Comparative T??Iff of Korelgii ( oui>trli ?. Tin' routine business of (lie Sennit' this morning, was of no public intercut whatsoever. Mr. Iteiiton read a letter lront the Postmaster General, relating to the publication of some correspondence concerning the uppoinUuent of a Postmaster at St. Louis. Mr. Henton denounced the Poet 111 aster General as having imposed upon the President, for the purpose of procuring the appointment of a relative to the office of Postmaster at St. Louis. Mr. Allen made another effort to get up his Ithode Island resolution, und there was rather a dense fog raised on a point of order, in which the President of the Senate, Mr. Southard, got enveloped, and has not yet found his way out. In the ordinary practice of the Senate, the rules of order nre not insisted upon implicitly. Hut Mr. Southard sometimes undertakes to enforce them without due eonsiideration, against a political opponent, and not being very clear or precise in his notions ol order, or any thing else,he runs a tilt, unconsciously, against friend or foe, as the case may be. There was a luminous discussion 011 the point of order, Mr. Wright, Mr. Havard, and Mr. King, being specially lucid and intelligible, during which Mr. Southard got more and more confused, and there seems to be no chance of his teeing his way clear. This matter being over, the appropriation hill comes up. The House adopted a resolution this morning to adjourn this week from Thursday over to Monday, in order to give an opportunity to take up the carpets in the llall, and put down mattings, which nre ] more comfortable and appropriate in warm wenther, and also to make arrangements for lis* necessary ventilation. It is race course in Washington thfs week, and the opinion seemed to prevail in the House that the adjournment was on account of the race; but the races terminate on Thursday, so no fun is to be had in that way. Several privute bills were then read a third time and passed, when the apportionment bill was taken iiji?the iinestion being on the amendment to provide for dividing the several States into Congressional districts. Upon this the day will be sjient. A valuable document, on the comparative tariffs ot foreign countries, whs laid upon the desk ct the Senate on_Saturday iiioruiug. It has been carefully and laboriously prepared in obedience to n cull of the Senate u|M>n the Secretary of the Treasury about two months since. This document furnishes, at the very nick of time, what is ao impatiently and imperiously demanded? "A series of Comparative Tables of American and Foreign Tariffs," arranged in the most scient ific and clear order, for the use of Congress in framing and remodelling our tariff, and in establishing the new Import duties. It is done in this way :? A single line divided in tabular form, into 17 columns, conducts the eye in tracintr, with the moat perfect precision, across the page, furnishing the desired information, reduced into federal money, measures, uml weights of all the principal foreign nations with which we have, by convention, commercial in tercuurse. This portion of the work is preceded by a very essential, nut useful, compendium of tables of foreign coins, weights and nteusures, as compared with those of the United States. The main tables nre followed by statistics of our exports, imports, manufactures, agricultural, staples of cotton, tobucco, wheat, flour, dec. fee. feeAt the instance of the Secretary of the Treasury, this work has been prepared by Jonathan Elliot, who has shown, throughout, that judgment and skill in the handling and application of the most difficult statistics, which must confer great credit upon hint. Neither McCulloch, Hume, or Dr. Bowring, in their comparative tariff of foreign countries extend beyond two or three nations, whereas Mr. Elliot's nre calculated for the commercial meridian of fourteen diff-rcnt countries. And it may be hut justice to add, lat the conception and successful execution of his plan may he considered as entirely new. It has been a work of great labor, and we trust the patient assiduity of Air. Elliot will meet its just reward. Baltimore. {CorreK|ii>udenco of tin- Herald.] Bai.tiuokk, May 3,1842. Mb. Ei>itok?

She had not gone into operation, however, under this charter, and consequently will be exempt from a compulsory liquidation (under the late act of assembly. The Chesapeake has but a very small circulation, and will redeem it with specie on demand. This bank, you are aware, was in a slight difficulty some time since, owing to a gross and inexcusable neglect upon the part of the State to return the money it had borrowed, amounting to about $176,000; she will continue operations upon a somewhat independent syatem. It is a truth admitted 011 all hands, that the stock in the Chesapeake, is as well secured, as is that of any other bank in the State. Business continues without much improvement.

[Corrwpondenre of the lisnld.] Rumored Affidavit from Isvis?Crimination of hij Associates?Custom House Removals? Storks, 4*c. Philadelphia, May 3, 1H12. A gentleman told me to-day that there was an affidavit in this city from Tlosea J. Levis, lnte cnsliierof the broken Schuylkill Bank, 111 which it is distinctly sworn that the officers associated with him in the Bank were cognizant of the frauds prae lif^d upon the Kentucky Bank, nmlih.it these frauds were penetrated with the view of bolstering up the sinking condition of the Hank here. That there m such mi affidavit in this city is possible, though I think hardly probable; hut "if hero, is much more lik< |y to he false than true. In the first place no considerable number of persons, like that of a Hank Directory, would be likely to keep such frauds quiet for so Ion# a time ;is those were kept. In the second place, there were among that directory several gentlemen, whom, amid all the corruption here, have escaped the taint of suspicion, though there were other* who were never esteemed any better than tliev should be. In the third piece, Levis is known to have been an inveterate shaver during the Inst few year* of hi* connection with the hnnk. nnd therefore likely to have use for much money, anil in a way to use much. Hearing all the odinin of the transaction, it is hut natural that he should seek to make his late associates, by truth or falsehood, relieve Itim of a portion of it. Still it mny he true, as is alleged. It I can get a ropy of the nflidavit, if there he one, 1 will send it to you. < >nr Collector ha* gone to Washington, it is said, with the view of reconciling the President to the ols ieetionahle appointments under liirn. He may pro-. 1i<thly compromise by turning out all sneh as were charged with the pipe-laying frauds, and substituting Tyler men in their places. There is still much feeling on the subject, nnd some loud talk. In stocks not much was done to-day, though prices all ajqienred firm. Stale fives 41 hid, -IA asked.

Rogenhom vs. William Cos?This was an action to recover the value of a horse (placed at f.100) wliicb had been run against by one belonging to dofondant, and killed. The accident occurred in March, lMll.onthe Third Avenue. A llttlo hoy was driving n baker's wagon, belonging to defendant, and turned out to pass some that were ahead of him. A person was riding plaintiff's horse, under the saddle. ; he was on the wrong tide of the street, ami ultempted to cross over, when tho two met. A shaft of the wagon broke one of the ribs of plaintiffs beast and entered the lungs?the suddennesa of the shock throwing the riderolf. The horse was given to the care of a veterinary surgeon, but soon afterwards died ; and the present action is brought. For the defence it was contended that the uecident was caused whollv by the plaintiff himself?he was on the wrong side of the street?was on horseback, and capable of controlling his beast?that the horse in defendant's wagon was 92 years of age, and could not travel so fast as to be dangerous. It was shown, however, Unit he was going at the rate of a mile In eight minutes. The Court charged, that although a horseman may he on the wrong side of the street, it is no excuse for auollier, if avoidable, in running fonl of and injuring him.
