The Moral ltcvolutloiu At length the great Moral Hevolution, that we have always predicted, lhas come down from heaven, and is now in full career in this happy and prosperous city. This is the real Millenium?the true reign of Christ on earth. The Mirabeau of this glorious revolution is the Hon. Tom Marshall of Kentucky, and the Robespierre and bloody Danton, are "Colonel Webb of the regular army," and his associates in those depths of demoralization. The "Courier and Enquirer," the organ of the drunkards?of the gamblers?of the bankrupts?of the murderers?of the instigators to riots on wholesale plan, is perfectly crazy with fright and apprehension. What do they propose to gain by that 1 Will the gross abuse of Marshall help the cause of the drunkards and the instigators to riot I Will the daily assaults on the character of the Mirabeau of the moral revolution help the miserable?the rascally?the vulgar politicians, gamblers and drunkards 1 During the whole of this glorious week has the revolution gone ahead w ith the rapidity ot steam power. At the Tabernacle, at the Methodist Church, thousands and thousands have hung on the eloquent words of Marshall. The crowning glory will, however, take j luce to-night ut the Tabernacle, where Tom Marshall will walk into the fashionable drunkards?the card-players?the brandynosed rascals?the rcsjiedable vagabonds of good society, who, under the guise of refinement, have been the cause of all the recent horrible demoralization of states, communities, cities, towns, men and women. C,o and hear him?do go and hear him. Removals from Office.?The game adopted by the United Slates Senate, in rejecting many of the best nominations of the President, merely on political grounds, begins to work both ways. The annex? d letter from Philadelphia discloses the progress of events in Philadelphia. We understand that preparations are also making to turn out one third of the present office holders in this city connected with the Custom-house. There will therefore be nearly 2U0 vacancies in New York that will require good men to till. If the collector of Philadelphia does not obey orders, he will be marched out himself, " hag and baggage." The same game, wisely began by the United ^tutes Senate, will be played all over the Union. Great timesfor office-seekers, probably 4000 vacancies are to lie made and tilled. Philadelphia, Muv 6,1842. A precious scheme of the office holders of the Philadelphia Custom House, to "head Captain Tyler," and embarrass the National Administration has just leaked out here. In obedience to public opinion, often expressed, the Administration had come to the determination to remove the pine layers and those incompetent to perform their duties, and those Clay men who have been most prominent in their abuse of the Uxecutive, denominating him a "damned traitor," and like names. I have divided them into three classes, but the last is nearly entirely included in the two lirst. A few days ago, it is believed, the Collector (himself, by the way, an incompetent, almost in second childhood, who should be removed) received an order to make some twenty removals, and to appoint certain others who were named, to the situations so vacated. Immediately, the Collector, those to he removed, and their friends met in caucus, to determine what should he done, and this, as I know from undoubted authority, is what they determined upon. 1st. That the Collector should proceed at once to Washington, and endeavor to intiuce the President to alter his determination. 2J. II this could not ho done, then he was to concede the removal of not over three of the most obnoxious?such as Hob Miller. 3d. II this would not do, then the Collector was to route hack, and neither comply nor directly refuse to comply, but let the business of the Custom House proceed as before; and above all. not by any means, ton-sign himself, but force the President to remove linn, which they calculated he would not rodnltifion omtntrlt tn <!<> Inr f??ur ni on nut. ory.' Accordingly. Jonathan llobertshas proceeded to Washington City; but if lie does not come back with a Hea in his ear, 1 miss my guess greatly, the way it is considered here a great blow to the prospects ot' I'lay tor the succession, to loose the in Huentv of the Custom House in his favor. It would have furnished not only the sinews of war (money) hut the officers ot his army too. I thought when the partizans of Mr. C'lay were shouting victory ! over the rejection of Tyson (who is said to he re-appointed) that their pride would soon have a dreadful hoist. Bela Badger I'. I,. V. S. (pipe laylayer and yarn spinner) gave a public dinner to a large party in celebration of the event. How rascals rejoice when honest men meet with misfortunes. The Bloody Sixth.?The Mayor will refuse to swear in the Whig Alderman and Assistant of the Bloody Sixth on Tuesday next, and Assistant Alderman Shaler will still continue to keep his seat until a new election is ordered by the Common Council. More fun brewing. Candidate^ for Cor tor \ riov A rroRNRY.?Among tin- candidate* in the field in the Whig ranks tor the spoils ot office, are Alexander W. Bradford, Esq., chairman ot the Whig Voung Man's Committee, and Theodore K Tonihnson, Esq., formerly with Mat Blunt while he held theu|>pointnient. Both feci as certain o| success as some of the Whmu do ot getting a majority in the Common Council, and it they do the scattering, quarreling, clamoring, slandering, pushing, pulling, and tumbling out and into office, will earn the devil himself to shake his sides with delight and laughter. h in m lv n ide Island.?Our advices are down to last night. Nothing important had occurred. The Suffrage Assembly lias ad|ourned to meet 111 Providence on the 1st Monday in luly. No more arrests had been made, but writs were ready to be *' used the moment the suffrage men returned to theii homes.

The Caledonia arrived at Ronton yesterday morning, alter a pleasant passage of 15 1-2 days. The news is of no very great interest. Anions the arrivals is the celebrated J. W. Cochran, the inventor of the revolving ordnance, with important despatches front General Cass, the American Minister at Paris. It is sui>pnsed thev relate to tlte views of the French government, on the late Treaty on the Right of Search. The Columbia had not arrived at Liverpool, but was spoken by the Caledonia the day she started, abreast of the Skerries, at about It) in the evening. The overland Mail from India was hourly exl>eeted, as the arrangements to reduce the time between Suez and Bombay front eighteen to twelve days, were retried at thp last arrival to he nearly completed. Trooi* for India, in considerable numbers, are assembling at Canterbury, Gravesend, and Tilbury Fort, and the embarkation of the men is going on with activity. Three additional regiments have been ordered to that country? the Seventy-Eighth Highlanders, the 10th Foot, and the Ninth Lancers. The 29th Regiment had embarked for India, and in a few days the 10th Regiment, greatly augmented. will also embark for the same place. The total augmentations of the army for foreign service will amount to at least 15,000 men. Lieut. General Sir Benjamin D'Urban goes to India as Commander in Chief. One of Lord Elleuhorough's first ac's, us Governor-Generul of India, lias been to order the restoration of Batta to the Madras sepoys. Orders had been issued at the British Royal Foundry for the casting of 2000 cannons of various calibre, intended chiefly lor the larger vessels of war. The Lords of the Admiralty have ordered twenty powerful fire-engines to he constructed for use in the national dockyards. Nine of those engines have been completed and sent to Woolwicb to be proved. Among the fifteen shi|>e which sailed from Antwerp on the 3d this month was the Belgian schooner "Jupiter," Captain Herloghe, hound for New York witli a cargo of coals. The Gazette de Guernsey announces the arrival of Mujor-General Nupier, who has succeeded ?ir James Douglas as Lieutenant-Governor of the island. Friday night's Gazette announces the elevation of Mr. John I'irie, Lord Mayor of London, to the baronetcy. The order of the garter has been conferred upon the Dukes of Bcuulort and Cleaveland, and Lord Salisbury. The preliminaries had been concluded for a matrimonial alliance between the ihtke of Bordeaux and the second daughter of the Emperor Nicholas of K ussia. The Grand Duke and Duchess of Tuscany have lost another daughter, the l'rincess Ann Maria. making the third within two years. Madrid patters of the 6th, mention that M. Zertuan, who was regarded as an agent of Prince Metternich, had received notice to quit the Spanish capital. Letters from Constantinople state that there has been a sad mortality among the Turkish troops at Adrianople. Cut of 12,1)00 men upwards of 2,000 have died of the typhus fever in three months. Letters from Mauritius mention the death of the Governor, Sir Lionel Smith, llis disorder was dropsy in the chest. The total charge for the China exp-nditure up to April, 1842, is 1,193,H!>2/., of which, including 618,430/. for the Canton ransom 1,018,430/. has been provided for. The estimated exp-nse of the year ending April, 1813, is 1,500,000/. Another large East India house had failed?that of Kortnan lladow, at London, a long established concern. An almost unwonted depression appears to hang over the East India trade. One of the largest manufacturing houses in Ireland, that of Joseph Beale Ar Co. of Mountmellick, has storied payment. By this event no less than 1000 persons were thrown out of employment. The large banking and commercial house ofThoniayer A: Co., at Vienna, after having once suspended and resumed, has again gone by the board. Its liabilities are very large. A lire broke out in London on the 25th, which destroyed the extensive leather manufacturing establishments of Bailey >.V Co., the largest in London. The banks of the Thames river, opposite Partford canal, recently broke away, and the water rushing through, covered 8(X) acres, and destroyed vast quantities of marsh hay in stacks. Another fall of one of the chalky cliffs at Hastings had, as has been for some time feared, wrouht almost irreparable injury to the harbor of that place. No fewer than fourteen mines were discovered in the province of Logrono during last February ; eight are of copper mixed with silver, one of silver ore unmixed, two of lead, and three of other metals. The distresses in the manufacturing districts of Great Britain still continued, although the demand for labor was, oh die whole, somewhat better than it had been for some time past. The Spitalfield weavers had been partially relieved bv further contributions from the metro|x>li?and the commercial towns; and the distressed operatives at Paisley were in the receipt of donation-sufficient to save tlieni from actual starvation. Still the amount of suflering was very great, and much greater, probably, than even the'British public supposed it could be, under the circumstances. We hear on all hands of reductions in the wages of manufacturing workmen. The hand-loom weavers in the employ of Messrs. Filden Brothers, of Todtnorden, had an abatement made of about 20 per cent, on their previous earnings.

Mrs. Nisbetv, and C .Mathews, are enraged by Macready for the next season at Drury lane; and Covent-garden, we hear, i? likely to be given principally to opera, sustained by the nigh talent of Miss A.

Assassinations at Rom*.?A letter fom Rome of the 22d March says?"For some time past nocturnal attacks have very frequent here. An Englishman. who was menaced by an assassin, fired at him and blew out his brains. The police have not I taken any step* against the Englishman, hut have I advised him, for his own security, to quit the city. I A few daysago the palace of the wealthy Cardinal 1 Del l>rauo was plundered in the middle of the day ot a large -urn of money and a quantity of jewels, amontrst which was a crucifix of diamonds valued at 2n,uno crowns. Fiik British Pari.nut \r.?The debate on the resolutions proposed by Cord lohn Bussell, as an is amendment on the resolution imposing an income >f !?* occupied the 1 biiis<' of Commons several nights. I lie amendment was, of course, rejected by a large majority, ami the original resolution afhnned.?

The best parts of it will, as a e matter ol course, lie fiercely assailed by the country gentlemen, who cannot be made to believe, as the fVemier wishes them, that provisions t an be made |. cheaper, by |he introduction of foreign articles, r without the home producer suffering. I- The Corn I<aw Bill has |*r*.?e<l the Commons by a r? maioritv of BW. . ' , On the titli the copyrtght,bill was discussed. The ' " ' 1 1 1 ?- - - - -V ' ' ' 4? - - - ? " ? ? proposal to giy? to authors a 42 ymi's' copyright, and to their families a seven years' copyright, after tlieir death, was carried. in the Commons, April 15, tlie resolution inipo*-, hi? a duty on wheat flour imported into Canada troiu the I lilted States, was debated in committee. Mr. laihouchere, though favoring the general principles o| the hill, was opposed to this proposition, lie gave u history of the action of Parliament upon the subject. Previous to the year 1831, flour imported into Canada from the United Slates was subject to a duty of live shillings t>er barrel. That duty was taken off through the exertions of the late Lord Sydenham. Mr. L. contended that the duty would be injurious to Canada, and detrimental to the trade of the empire ; and lie moved to strike out the proposition?believing that the trade of Canada with tin' United Slates ought to lie encouraged, lie also argued the motion from the great iniportanee of'securing to the St. Lawrence the transit of the produce of Ohio, Michigun and the farther counties of the lakes. Mr. < Gladstone thought this argument unini|>ortnnt. lie believed the time had not coma for Canada to compete with the canals of the Cnited States?particularly of the State of New York. The debate was continued by Mr. lloehuck, and by Lord Stanley, in reply. The motion of Mr. Labouchure did not prevail, and the resolution was adopted. Tne next resolution, embracing a duty of 3s. on salted and cured meat, Arc., imported from the United States, was then taken up, and opposed by Lord John Russell. Mis lordship argued strongly in favor of increasing the conimeree between the I lilted Mutes and Canada. 1 he resolution prevailed, and a considerable advance was made in the tariff during the sitting. In the Lords, on the 18th, the Larl of R i[>on moved the second reading of the corn importation bill, and was left speaking On the same day in the Commons, Sir Robert I'eel said it was his wish that the operation of the income tax should commence on the 5th of April next, lie hoped the measure would not long be delayed. lie afterward brought forward the property tax bill, which the clerk first read by its title. On the question being put by the Speaker that the hill be now read a first time, Lord John Russell rose and .-poke to the general question, in opposition. Sir Robert Peel commenced in reply, and was upon his legs when the reporter left. The second reading of the Corn Law Bill was fixed for the night of the 18th in the House of Lords. Lord Melbourne has given notice of Ins intention to move an amendment, in the shape of a resolution, on the motion for the second reading. The farmers are pouring in their petitions against the bill. The presentation of one, on Thursday evening, gave rise to a curious scene. The Duke of Wellington lost his temper, and gave the lie to certain statements with more energy than politeness. An account of the gross and nett receipts of each custom house, for the years 1840 and 1811, has been laid before Parliament. The following five places are highest on the list: London, in 1841, gross receipts, 11,757,262/.; Liverpool, 4.140,593/.; Glasgow, including Greenock and Port Glasgow, 1.050,462/.; Bristol, 1,027,160/.; and Dublin, 977, 718/. The receipts at all these porta, with the exception of Liverpool, have increased considerably as compared witn those of the previous year; the falling off'at Liverpool amounts to 467,000/. The if evenue accounts for the year and Quarter ending the 5th of April have been, published. On the year, indeed there has been an increase in three of the five chief items?on the customs 175,905/., on the taxes 122,188/., and on the post office 90,000/. The decrease of 65,427/. on the excise is more than counter-balanced by the increase on the customs; and on the stamps the decrease of 123,589/. is countervailed by the larger amount of taxes. The gross increase on the year is 687,941/. The quarter's accounts show less favorably. There is a decrease in four of the six items?in the customs 25,465/., excise]116,309/., stainps77,917/.. taxes 71.392/. The increase on the post office is, 49,000/.; a consider, able step. There is a large increase in miscellaneous, of 274,067/.; but some Chinese cash swells that amount. The gross increase on the quarter is 111,332/. It is something, however, to have any increase at all, in the state of affairs. Tub Amended Tariff.?Sir R. Peel's proposed tariff is at length printed, with the amendments acceded to by the Government. These are neither very numerous nor verv important, the duties on all the main articles, sucn as live stock, provisions, iiinner, conee, meiai, arogs, at., remaining unaltered. At the same time, several minor alterations are made, which, although not very important to the community at large, \vill be of considerable consequence to the different interests affected. In one respect the tariff is materially improved. The number of additional protecting duties in favor of colonial produce is greatly reduced. Instead of proceeding on the principle adopted in the first draft of the tariff, of giving a protecting duty of one half in favor of the colonies wherever a duty is imposed unon any articles of foreign produce, the amended copy confines the protection to eases in which the article is actually produced in the colonies. It does not, as in the former case, swell the tariff hy a long list of merely theoretical protections and it obviates the objection of calling into existence new monopolies. In one instance the alteration is of some practical importance. The differential duty of 3dflpcr II). in favor East I India tobacco is discontinued, and the 3s. duty charged on the produce of British possessions as well won that of foreign countries. For this amendment, which saves us from the introduction of a wrong principle in an article of such great importance to commerce and revenue, the country is indebted to Mr. Laboucherc, who pressed the point stronglv in the House of Commons when the tariIf was first brought forward. We will now give a short sketch of such of the other alterations as appear likely to affect trade and particular interests: Schedule 1.?Animals and Articles < f Food. The importation of fish at the lower di ties is eonfined to fish imported in vessels other than fishing vessels, in whicli it is prohibited. The object evidently is to prevent foreign vessels from interfering with our own fishermen, by fishing within the prescribed distances front the English coast, whic'i the Dutch and French fishing crafts could not lie prevented from doing, if they were allowed to run up to Ixmdon with their cargoes of fresh fish. The rules of dutv we arc glad to see remain unaltered, and the Duke of Richmond has not, as was reported, succeeded in dictating to the Government a higher duty on foreign salmon. Tongues are reduced from 1 Is to 10s per cwt.? Apples are charged by the bushel fid instead of 2s Gd per cwt. l'ears fkl n bushel. Schedule 10.?Timber and Woods.?The period when the duty of 25s |>er load on foreign timber is to come into operation is post|M>ned from the 5th April to the 10th October, ltS-42. The duty on deals and battens is raised from 1/. 15.?. (per load at first, and after 5th April, 1842, 1/. 10*. to 1/. 18s. at first, and after the Kith Oct. 1842. 1/ 12s. 1 loops, oak-knees, lathwood and spars, instead of being included in the general charge per load, are specially charged hy tale, at rates varying from about one third to one half of the present duties on foreign and nominal amounts on colonial. Ireland, The troubles in Ireland, arising principally from the scarcity of provisions, the want of employment and disaffection with the government, were every dnv assuming a more alarming aspect. Murders, robberies, anil other outrages upon the laws, were ol frequent occurrence?an-now in? a laxity oi moral restraint, and a desperate determination to obey flic behesIs of tory rule The complaint wan. I ha t the "oven ntent, amidst all its propes-d measures, did not contemplate doing any thing lor Ireland, or to lighten the burdens which weighed down its energies. A large number of houses in the neighborhood of Itnonheg, countv Clare, Ireland, were recently carried awav hy a flood, and several men lost their lives in attempting to save some cattle. The assertion recently made hy Sir Hohert I'eel in Parliament, that the temperance reformation had not diminished the quantity of ardent spirits imported into Ireland, is stoutly contradicted by the Irish whig papers,and is considered by them as intended to keep up the old pre in dices against the Irish people. Krnnce. M. Thiers has treated this country and Europe to another warlike speech, to another tunc, played on the chord of national " feeling." M. Thiers, in this speech, strongly insists on the immediate outlay ot large sums in order to establish a great naval port at Algiers, capable of containing and protecting a fleet of 2o sail of the line. I.otiis Phillippr has been unwell; he hnd a cold on Monday, and kciKhis chanibcr; but he resumed las usual habits on .Tuesday. There, have been rumors in London that the King is troubled wilhsonie dropsical symptom. Portugal. The Inteat accounts from Lisbon and C|>orto are to the 12th. Affairs at Oporto were grow ing worse and worse daily, and the whole trade was frightfully depressed. Two new failures hnd occurred, for a considerable amount, and fresh failures were expected daily to declare themselves. The commercial community in that city had expres-' d themselves well pleased with such portions of tie- alterations in the tariff proposed by Sir K lVrl as affected ibis trade with England. The French wpiadron was about to leave Lisbon immediately, ibe (iroudeur, a war steamer, having arrived from llrest. with orders to that effect. The destination of the squadron was not accurately known, hut is supposed to lie Tangier. Prnssla. Accounts from lterlin state that the King of Prussia w-ill stop sometime at Kontgsberg, on his ini ten led journey to 5>t Petersburg!!, to inquire into the complaints jiiadejbyihe inliahituuts respecting 'lie Russian prohibitive duties The Prussian State < iazette announces from Prague that :ft),tXM men are to be discharged this year from the army. The new levies will not exceed 2li,67(> men, although the usual number is MI.OUO <>! this amount 7,2fiOure to be furnished by Hohcmia. 'J'lie o(>eration of recruiting w ill commence in April, anil terminate about the end of May. It is reported that Konigsberg is about to become a fortified town of the first class, and that the works are to commence next summer. Africa, The Semaphore de Marseilles of the 2d April pul>lislu s an account of an awful hurricane on the coasj of Africa, near Gran, in which forty-one vessels of all si/.es (lerislted. The Krench troo|*? have experienced a reverse nt Tleinlecea. Abdel Kadcr, who was su(n>osed to have retired towards Morocco, reappeared in the vicinity of Tlemler en with HOimi men, and inflicted a heavy loss on the French troo|?, which had left that town under Gen. Hedenu. The precise state of the case has not transpired, but it ts clear that the advantage gained hy the Arab chief mutt have been considerable, as General Bugeand instantly despatched two steamers to < 'ran lor reinforcements. The Gazette (let Trihututitx contains a frightful account of the decapitation of no fewer than forty-four Arabs at Constantine, tor imputed offences, most of them of a very trivial character, without either trial or inquiry!!! The Niger Expedition. The latest letters from Ascension (February 7.) stnte that the Albert had arrived there on the 2Hth January. No deaths had occurred in the interim. The 1\ ilberforce is said to he in better condition than when she left Kngland, and it was Captain Allen's intention to take her and the Soudan to the coast in March. From thence he proposed re ascending the river, which he would probably be able to do in April. Egypt. The Leipsic Gazette of the 4th April contains a letter from Constantinople, which states that the British government hail solicited permission from Mehemet Ali to march a body of troops through Kgypl and the isthmus of Suez, for the purpose of facilitating their arrival in India. The Pasha is said to have renlied that he could not grant the request without the consent of his master the sultan. The object of Sanii Bey's visit to Constantinopl is, to represent to the Sultan the inexpediency of granting a similar permission, and to suggest the propriety of erecting a line of forts on the const of the Bed Sea. The Levant. The Levant Mail, with papers from Malta to the r)th ilist. has arrived. Sir Stratford Carmine had nresented verv strong notes to the Porte on the alleged misconduct of the Syrian authorities. Prince Mavrocorduto had not yet had his audience of the Sultan. He is looked upon as a sort of uninvited guest, and could not exia?ct a very cordial reception, but it is agreed that the Porte will not throw any impediments to the fulfillment of the object of his mission.

The complaints made hv Sir Stratford ('aiming are to he inquired into and settled by Seliin Bey. when lie arrives in Syria. The accounts received from thisquarter are conflicting, all parties accusing each other. The Mussulman |K)pulation were quite elated at the reverses of the British in Afghanistan. Syria was in a slate of insurrection, and the confusion more confounded by the employment of Albanian troops to repress it, they being, in fact, little better than banditti themselves. Meheinet Ali was at Dumanhour. Admiral Walker had returned the sword presented him by the Sultan, on the ground that it was inferior in value to those presented to other officers. Persia. The Brussels papers contain this statement:? " Letters from Odessa announce tlmt a revolution hpd broken out in Persia; that the Shah was dethroned; and that thirty thousand insurgents were on their inarch to Teheren. This seems to need confirmation." On the authority of a Berlin corres|>ondent, iq>on whose information, derived through letters from Moscow, great reliance is placed, tne Times stales that the Shah of Persia has inarched against Herat at the head of 60,000men; and that Russia hns furnished a subsidy of 2.0(H),(XX) rubles in order to enuahle the Shah to make the movement. India. A letter dated Bombay, March 1, from a general officer to a relation in England, communicates the following intelligence :? " Accounts have come that Ghumci had been taken, and the garrison, 1(XX) strong, put to the sword. General Nott, it is also said, is preparing to retreat; although in Candahar, at the head of 12,(XX) men, he ought to hold good his position for years, as with sueh a force he might commuud the country round." The Calcutta Englishman, of the 16th February, received by the Falmouth mail, states that intelligence had reached Lahore on the 27th of January, to the effect that Akhar Khan had come down upon Jellalabad in great force, and having been met by ill' i>riu>ii uuup ?mi nit* |>i?tin, ?i I'ctiin iiau urt'ii fought, in which he and n great number of Afighauo were killed. The truth of this intelligence was doubted. The London Evening Mail of Aj?ril lfiilt, says? "From inquiries made at the India house yesterday. on the subject of the fall of ( hiiznee, as described in a letterf frnin Bombay of the 1st ult., we are led to believe and hope that it may only prove to have bc? n an exaggeration ol the news last received thence, and that the country may be soared this great additional disastsr.
