Ho had little time, and less voice, and should plunge right into the middle of his subject at once. There had, in former times, been too many tears, aud too much complaining at these meetings. Not so this year. We now come up with thanksgivings. We should have Luther's spirit, and carry that twoh forward in the face ot' men and devils. We "hear meu complain of the violence of party?of the enormity of political heresies?but the political aspect of the times is very much improved. We lire not perfect?we are not in heaven?nor vet in paradise? (laughter). We are sinners, and the fellow citizens ot sinners. Our rtileis are sinners, and they who chose them are sinners. I'm not afraid for my country whilst wc have this Bible read so freely. We show too much puhli ai,\ji-iy to have the Bible read in schools. The more public stir u e make against it, the more we stir up oui enemies to oppose us. I would join w ith sceptics and nitideis to itroiluce a good spelling book into schools, tin n i '.1 then teach boys to read, and then give them the Bib! i iiv e tliein six days in the week, and we'd beat 'em , ii the 7th with the Bible.

The K vents of Yesterday. Yesterday took place the anniversary of the great, the mighty, the fundamental Bible Society?and in this day's paper will be found a report of its" sayings and doings"?such as no other |mper run give. The Bible Society is the corner stone ot the moral and religious movements of the age?the foundation and basis of every principle, and evary thought, anil every feeling that agitate the whole family of man. The Bible is the mighty lever ot civilization?the great reservoir of the past, present and future. Kvery thing that pertains to the Bible, pertains to man and to eternity. Head, ye men, women, and sinners, and learn your duty, and the means of your salvation! We also give reports of the other societies that held their meetings yesterday, comprehending also the secular and sinful events of the day, horse-racing, roguery, treason, folly and crime, which always characterise a great revolutionaty age in human aii'.ors?an age of transition and change, an age that will lead us possibly to the better?certainly we cannot he worse. This great and holy week in New York ought to he the starting point, the New Year's day, in morals and religion forth# next year. Let every moral and religious being get the Herald for this week, priee only 6^ cents, for it contains a treasure that will lust a good year. Amen. Stone's pou Libel,?Conocct ok his Counsel.?We are informed that the counsel of Colouel Stone, in opening his defence yesterday, at his trial now pending before the Court of Over and Terminer, slated or insinuated, that the twojudges of that tribunal indicted a fine upon us of only $360, for the purpose of procuring the silence of the Hcruld with respect to certain contracts entered into by some firm called Hunting A" Co., and also because the Herald leaned towards those judges in their civil and political relations. We pronounce this statement a wilful, a malicious, an outrageous falsehood, from beginning to end.? The Herald, thanks to God and to the American people, is placed beyond the reach of purchase by any man, party, . or Court in the earth or under the earth. We never knew, spoke, or saw Alderman Lee, till after that trial nud judgment had terminated ! We never heard of the firm of Bunting A: Co. We heve not spoken to Alderman Purdy for more than a year past. The only judge on the bench 011 that occasion, that we had any intercourse i...i-- l---. i.: ir ?' -1 - vriill, y>un juhur j\rm liuust'll?anil II1UI WitS Only 111 the way of business. It is true that we have in our possession, .1 full history of the private and public opinions of .1 udge Kent, during the pendency of that case, which it may be necessary to give one of these days. We have also ready for publication a very full memoir or history of the whole of that persecution, from the original movement of Judge Lyneh, and of the parties and men who instigated it, and at the proper time we shall give it to the world. Once tor all, therefore, if David Graham, or Hiram Ketchum, or any other lawyer, consider it necessary to attack our character, or to advance gross md audacious falsehoods, for the purpose of screening their client, we shall give them an opportunity of proving their assertions if they dare to conie forth as men of character and legal responsibility. They need not imagine that they shall be i?ennitted to utter false statements?or to impute corrupt practices to us, under the mantle of being a member of the bar, in order to create sympathy for their client?a client too, who has uttered more libels ngainst Courts and individuals, than would form the staple of a dozen indictments. If Iliram Ketchuin chooses to think Col. Stone in the j>enitentiary, a more dignified, moral spectacle than Judge Kent on'.the bench, iwf have no right to 'tuarrel with his taste, although Governor Seward in his appointments to ollice, thought differently of the Judge, of the counsel, and of the client. In point of moral character, we can compare any day with Stone, and all his counsel?and they shall feel it so one of these days. The spirit and teni|>er of the defence set up by Stone, is even more audacious, and more destructive to the dignity and purity of justice, than the original libel itself.

Coronation oe .Mr. Van Bi rkn.?Kissing and Shaving ok General Jackson.?Of all the scenes which the pilgrimage of Mr. Van Buren to the Hermitage has produced, the most amusing is the eoronaiion of die Kx-President at Nashville, by the young ladies of an academy there?and the kissing and cutting off the white locks of GeneralJJackson. The following is an account from a Nashville paper:? " On Friday alxnit eleven o'clock, Mr. Van Buren viaited the Nashville Female Academy, accompanied by the venerable Mr. t'rutcher. the father of the institution", aud by Col. McGavock and Doctor F.ssclman. His recmition is represented to have been deeply interesting. He found the pathway from the outer gate to the hall door strewn with flowers of many varieties. He was met at the door by the Rev. Mr. F.lliott and other teachers of the institution; and as he received a cordial welcome, the young ladies with large bouquets in their hands, arrayed on either side of the aisle that leads to the rear where the trustees were seated, at once made a most magnificent carpet of flowers, ujion which he advanced, and wax introduced to the trustees. The classes from first to last were then presented, when Miss Smith pronounced a neat sa| lutatory address, and placed a crown of flowers upon his head, [oh '. oh ! oh !] which he took off and affixed to his: left breast. The little ladies thronged around him, literally loading him with the choicest dowers of the season, as intimate, apparently, as if they had always known him personally. A scene like this?about two hundred young girls dressed like so many May aueens, all life and gayetv ?is best appreciated by thow wno witnessed it. " General Jackson had been expected, and each little student had to ask w hy he was not present. They were informed that the feeble state of his health prevented his attendance, but that he would be happy to sec them at (Jen. Armstrong's in the afternoon. Gladly receivingtlie inv itation, they called on the old hero at the timu appointesl, covered him with flowers, and procured so many of his snow white locks as to give his head the uppearaucc of having just passed from the hands of the barber. Thev greeted him with a kiss?he gave them ' a blessing and "a prayer.' ' Mr. Paulding was also expected; aud there was a lively inquiry among the juvenile literati for the ' author of the Dutchman's Fireside.' Business of another nature had prevented hiin from attending." Union Course?Third Day.?The course was thinly attended, and three horses started in the three mile heats, purse $500. Win. Gibbous' buy mare Cassandra, from Col. Johnson's stable: Stevens' Zampa. and Maj. Jones's Treasurer. Some difficulty occurred previous to sturting, oti account of Treasurer having been entered ufter 6 o'clock on Wednesday evening, when it was stated that the entries should close at 5. The Judges upon the stand contended that the entry was made contrary to the rules, und therefore the horse ought not to start. Maj. Jones insisted u[>on his right on the ground, that his entry had been received by the Secretary of the Club and no objections made?that it had been published and posted at the Club House, and therefore persons who had bet on the Field against CasMindra had a right to claim the entry of the horse. The rnembeis of the Club were called forward, and a vote being was unanimously agreed that Treasurer should run, which received the shouts of the assemblage. Previous to starting bets were offered of 25 to 10 on Cassandra against the field, but no takers. They got off very well together, and kept nose to tail or nearly so, with Cassandra on the lead, Zampa close behind, until coming down the last quarter, when they both lc|t Treasurer about four lengths, Cassandra winning the heat by a length in advance of Zampa. Time 5m. 5toec. Sec ond IIkat.?Treasurer took the lead and kept it the first and second inilesa length in advance, hut when passing the first turn on the last, Cassandra passed him and won the heat by two lengths, leaving Zampa at the distance hole. Time 5m. 45sec. She won the with ease, and the time may he considered good. By reference to the entries in another column, it will be seen that Boston and Mariner contend for the four-mile purse to-day, and that two-mile and mile heats will also be run Genuine sport may be expected The first rare, mile heats, will come o.. precisely at 1 o'clock 1 lie tour mile nt 3 o'clock At the C'entreville Course, after the thr e-mile heats were off at the T'nion, Brandy wine distanced Fourth of July, Betav Baker, and k.ate Ilantz, in mile heats, best three in five, on the first heat ?

A message Irom the President, touching 'he Florida war, wax read in the Senate (his morning. It seems that there is no occasion lor further hostilities on the Florida Cape. It is ascertained from authentic sources, that the number of Indians is very small, and that all which is now necessary to secure the safety of the inhabitants, is In authorize the united occupation of Florida giving to settlers, on certain conditions, a reasonable quantity ol land as bounty. There was some conversation between Mr. Preston and Mr. .'-evict-, in relation to the war, and the amount of credit to be divided between ten Osage Indians, and the officers who have successively commanded our trooiw. The message was referred to the committee on military affairs. In reply to a question from Mr. Preston, Mr. Berrien stated that a majority of the Judiciary committee were op|Mised to un international copyright, but that the committee had delayed an adverse report at the request of the Senator who introduced the bill. The rest of the remaining business was of no public ini|>orturice. Mr. Merrick made a prosy speech in reply to the remarks of Mr. Benton yesterday, but nobody listened, and when he had exhausted himself, and Mr. Mangum had given a blast at the Madisonian, the squabble between Mr. Benton and the Post office department, was dropped. The bill for removing causes from the Stato to the Federal Courts, was then taken up, and Mr. Huntington is making a tolerable speech to an empty house. The llouse is still on die Appropriation Bill. The amendment inserted by the Senate providing for the paving for the furniture of the New York Customhouse, has led to much debate. The appropriation for the Boston custom-house lias been cut down in committee from one hundred thousand to fifty thousand dollars.

Letter from the Secretary of State to the Governors of MasMarhuiictts au?l Maine, Department of State, # Washington, Utli April, 1842 S Tohi.1 Exctlltm v John Fairfiuld, Governor of Maine: \ our Excellency is aware that previous to March. 1841, a negotiation had been going tut for some time between the Secretary of State of the United States, under the direction of the President and the British .Minister accredited to this Government, having for its object the creation of a joint commission for settling the controversy respecting the Northeastern boundary of the United States, with a provision for an ultimate reference to arbitrators, to be appointed by some of the sovereigns of Europe, incase an arbitration should become necessary*. On the leading features of a Convention for this purpose, the two Governments were agreed, but on several matters of detail the parties differed, and appear to have been interchanging their respective views and opinions, projects and counter-projects, without coming to a final arrangement down to August, 1840. Murium causes, not now necessary to he explained, arrested the pronre.-sof the negotiation at that time, and no considerable advance has been since made in it. It seems to have been understood, on both sides, that one arbitration having failed, it was the duty of the two parties to proceed to institute another, according to the spirit of the Treatv of Ghent, and othertreuties; and the President ftas felt it to he his duty, unless some new course should he proposed, to cause the negotiation to be resumed, and pressed to its conclusion. But 1 have now to inform your Excellency that Lord Ashburton, a Minister Plenipotentiary and Special, has arrived at the Sent of Government of the United States, charged with full powers from his sovereign to negotiate and settle the diflerent matters in discussion between the two Governments. 1 have further to state to you, that lie has officially announced to this Department that, in regard tothe Boundary question, he bus authority to treat for a conventional line, or line by agreement, on such terms and conditions, and witn such mutual considerations and equivalents, as may be thought just and equitable ; and that he is ready to enter upon a negotiation for such conventional line so soon as this Government shall say that it is authorized and ready, on its part, to commence such negotiation. Under these ciacunistanccs, the President has felt it to be his duty to cull the serious attention of the Governments of Maine and Massachusetts to the subject, and to submit to those Governments the propriety of their co-operation, to a certain extent ana in a certain form, in an endeavor to terminate a controversy already of so long duration, and which seems very likely to be still considerably further protracted before the desired end of final adjustment shall be attained, unless a shorter course of arriving at that end be adopted, than such as has heretofore been pursued, and as the two Governments are still pursuing. Yet, without the concurrence of the two States who rights are more immediately concerned, both having an interest in the soil, and otic of them tn the jurisdiction and government, the duty of this Government will Ik* to adopt no new course, but. in compliance with treaty stipulations, and in furtherance of what has already been done, to hasten the pending negotiations as fast hs possible. But the Ptesident thinks it a highlv desirable object to prevent the delays necessarily incident to any settlement of the question by these means. Such delays are great ana unavoidable. It has l>een found that an exploration and examination of the several lines constitute a work of three years. The existing commission for making such exploration under the authority of the United States, has been occupied two summers, and a very considerable jiortion of the work still remains to be done. If a Klirit onrmnLGnn should lie atiDO lilted, aild S-llOllld go through lilt- Mine work, ami the commissioners mould disagree, as is very |>o?ihlo, and an arbitration on that account become indispensable, the arbitrators might find it necessary to make an exploration, and survey themselves, or cause the same lobe done by others, of their own appointment. If to these causes, operating to postjaine the final decision, he added the tint* necessary to appoint arbitrators, and for their preparation to leave Europe for the service, and the various retarding incidents always attending such operations, seven or eight years constitute, perhaps, the shortest period within which we can look for a final result. In the mean time, great expenses have been incurred, and further exjienses cannot br avoided It is well known that the controversy has brought heavy charges it|H)n Maine herself, to the remuneration or proper settlement of which, she cannot be e\|>eoteil to lie indifferent. The-exploration by the government of the United States has already cost a hundred thousand dollars, and the charge of another summer's work is in |iros|>eet. These facts may be sufficient to form a probable estimate ol the whole expense likely to be incurred before the controversy can bp settled by arbitration; and sur experience admonishes us that even another arbitration might possibly fail The opinion of this Government upon the justice and validity of the American claim has been expressed, at so many times, ntid in so many forms that a repetition of that opinion is not necessary ? But the subject is a subject in dispute The government has agreed to maks it matter of reference and arbitration; and it mast fulfil that agreement,unless another mode tor settling the controversy should be resorted to with hope of producing a apeedterdecision The President proposes,that the government.-, of Maine and Massachusetts should severally appoint a commissioner or commissioners, empowered to confer with the authorities of this Government upon a conventional line, or line hy agreement, with its terms, conditions, considerations, and equivalents, with an understanding that no such line will be agreed upon, without the assent of such rotmnimoners. This mode of proceeding, or some other which aliallexprp x assent beforehand, seems indispensald \ if any negotiation for a conventional line i* to be had, since if happily a treaty should be the result of the negotiation, it can only he submitted to the Smnte of the United States tor ratification. It is a subject of deep and sincere rf gret to the President that the British Pleni|>oieniiarv did not arrive in the country, and make known lu's powers, tn time to have made this communication before the annual tension of the Legislature of the two States had been brought to n close. 1 fe perceives ar.d 1 intents the inconvenience, which may lie exn 'rienced from re-assembling those legislatures; hut the Br ish mission is n special one ; it does not supersede the resident mission of the British Government at Washington, and its stay in the United States is not expected to be long. In addition to these considerations, it is to he suggested that more than four months of the session of Congress have already passed, and it is highly desirable, if any treaty for a , J iii i __ a. ..i.i u. conventional unr snomn ne mn-ni on, pii-uu >, concluded before the session shall terminate; nol only herause of the necessity of the rntifieniion ot the Senate, but also bemuse it is not impossible that measures may be thought advisable, or Wrotue iin portant. which can onlv be accomplished by th< authority of both Houses. These considerations, in addition to the ini|>ortunce of the subject, and a firm conviction in th< mind of the .President that the interests of both countries, as well as the interests of the two Stntre more immediately concerned, requires prompt effort to brins this dispute to an end, constrain him to expres an earnest hope that your Excellency wil' * convene ilir Legislature <>l Mainr, and submit flusubject to its grave and candid deliberation I am, tv it It great reaped.

Court or Oyer uml Terminer. I Becfre Judge Kent and Aldermen Italia ami Hatfield. Mav 11.?Decision is the Cur.or Jmiil'. Colt.?The prisoner w as brought into Court, when Judge Kent read the decision in relation to a motion lor a new trial. In reference to the persons employed by the Sheriff to summon the Jury, the Court, after stating its view s, saw no reason to disturb the verdiet on that nceount. The ntlidavit of Kred'k N. Kensett as to the jurors conversing Irom the window s utter they had retired, is contradicted by overwhelming evidence, nnd this point also falls to the ground. The principal ground of the motion, that Nathan R. Husted, one of the jurors, had previously expressed an opinion as to the guilt of the prisoner, was fully reviewed by the Court. The remarks of Mr. Husted were made at his own house in October last. They were casual and unpremeditated, and unaccompanied by "discussions. One of the witnesses stated that he did not believe " Mr. Husted had it at heart." Mr. Husted himsolf, tinder oath, says r "If he did, nt any time, use thp expressions charged upon him. they were made in a careless and loose manner, w ithout their leaving the slightest trace ou his memory ; that when he was sworn on thej'ry his mind was free and unbiassed, either for or against "the prisoner, nnd he went upon that jury with as pure a mind, and as unbiassed a judgment, as it is possible for any human being to have." The affidavit of Wilson the Court does not believc. After citing \ arious ease, Judge Kent ruled that the depositions do not show tit at Mr. Ilustol was incompetent, because there is no suggestion that he w as acquainted w ith the prisoner ; that h>- had any knowledge ofthe facts in the ense ; or that that there is evidence of nny opinion except as to two or three extravagant expressions, made without malignity or even reflection, and which areoutweighed by the testimony of Mr. Husted himself. As to the question of talismen the order was sustained by this Court, and unless the Supreme Court, to which the case has been carried, shall reverse the decision, it must heronsidered as valid. The following is the of JtcJge Kent's opinion :? But the last and greatest objection to a revision of this ease is to be found in the consideration that if verdicts of juries are lightly set aside in capital cases, lor some expressions alleged, or testified to have been used previous to the trial, the administration ol criminal justice w ill bo fearfully and irreparably injured. Charge- like those brought against Husted "are " easily made and hard to be disproved." Like all recollections of mere 1 iy. ; age, unconnected with conduct or events, they : ' to, when mort honest, to great mistakes and misconsri uctions, and, as in rase of all testimony of words alleged to have been s|>okeii, the person testitving can place his testimony where direct contradiction is impossible, and punishment for false evidence beyond the power of the law. The verdict of a jttrv is and ought to be a solemn and almost a sacred event; and never, if the Court might judge from outward manifestations, did n jury hoar, consider, nnd render their verdict with greater decorum, deliberation, nnd propriety. This Court can not. under the affidavits nroduced. dis tnrb tliis verdict ; and they deny the motion, under the firm convictiun that granting it, would be setting a precedent that would impair, if it did not almost vitally weaken th administration of justice in criminal cases of magnitude eel importance. Colt. (who hud listened wilh deep earnestness to the remarks ol" the Judge) received the derision as tl he had expected it as a matter of course. Sentence in his case now awaits the decision of the S oprciuc Court. Trial of H'm. L. Slant, for Lihel on (A* Court of Outr and Terminer This case was continued, Messrs. Ketclium, David Oialiam. and N. B. Blunt, appearing for the prisoner, and Mr. Whiting. District Attorney, on the part of the |?coule. The testimony of John lnnnian. assistant editor ol the Commercial, was read. He states that he u rote the libel from information given to Col. Stone by a person who show ed two notes sent by Mr. Hnllet to Mr. Vaudervoort, suggesting that Alderman Lee be notified us one of the Judges ot Oyer and Terminer, with Mr. Vandervoort's answer, and who also gave verbal information. He refused to state whether or not the person was connected with the administration of public justice in the city. Mr. Kktciicm then opened the case on behalf of thede fence. Ilia address to the jury occupied sometime. He concluded by saying, that ii' e ol. Stone was sent to the penitentiary, he would he accompanied by the good wishes of tlie cominuuitv, and he would rather be in his place, than a Judge on the bench. Mr. VsaocarooT, Clerk ol the Oyer and Terminer, was then called, lie stated that he liatl designatod Aldermen Purdy oud Hatfield, or Voorhies, for the term of the Oyer and Terminer ; but Judge Kent was desirous of having some gentleman with him acquainted with law, and he substituted Alderman Benson, whom he selected with Alderman Purdy. Mr. Hallet sent a note to his otiice, remark ing that Aldermnu Lue would like to be one of the presi ding judges, {ie returned answer as to Alderman Benson, but a second note was sent by Mr. Hallet, stating that hehad seen Judge Kent, and it was all right to notify Alderman Lee. He did so. The three Aldermen anpeared, but Mr. Benson yielded after the second dav. These notes had been obtained of him by Judges Lynch and Noah, who had them in possession. Alderman B?:*ion testified as to thr strong political bias entertained bv Messrs. Purdy. Lee, Whiting, Cowdrey, and Others, lie snirl he appeared as a judge of the 1 'ourt, hut as the others did uot offer to give way he did. Judge Nonh testified to having given the notes and informa-ion to Mr. Stone He al?o said he consented to a nolle prosequi, from having been called upon by several persons, incluuing some ladies; to do so. Mr. P. A. Cowdrey, Counsel ot the Board, testified to having been called upon by Messrs. Purdv and Lee to frame a legal opinion, they dictating their views, and saying that Judge Kent, at first, wus in favor of fine, hut they belie veil hail changed his mind. A strong political effort was here made to worm out of Mr. Cowdery all the oinions he had been called upon to frame in relation to the organiration of the new Court of Sessions, but it w as overruled. The Court adjourned to this forenoon. Kmktrkat. Discharges.?These curious phenomena called " sheet lightning," were seen in the air, over the recent great fire near Forsyth street.

If they were positively payable at the expirutiou of the 20 years, the 10 per cent bonus to be received would bo equal to an interest of0.3 percent, which would make the income derivable from the stock, 6-93 l>er cent, which is .03 per cent worse than the 7 per cent at par, redeemable at the pleasure of the State after six years. There is no cci'taiuty, however, that the stock will be redeemed at that time, the payment of the nominal capital is, therefore, scarcely worth taking into the account. The 5 per cent State stock due in 1943. the Comptroller states it is liis intention to pay promptly, and yet those stocks soil as low as 90. The security of these stocks arc undoubtedly superior to those of the federal government in tha present state of affairs, and the sluggishness of their movement is an indication that there is but little rliaticc for the 6 per cent of the government. On the 3<1 inst. the banks of New Orleans made their first specie settlement with each other. A snlo of ?1 000 United States 6 per rent stocks, payable in 1944, was made at Boston yesterday at 99 percent. We have received the rsport of Walter Forward, Esq. Secretary of the Treasury, in answer to the resolution of the House ol Representatives, requiring him to communi rate information, plans and views, to the committee ot ways and means, in relation to raising u revenue from im ports for the use of the government. We have annoxed the proposals of the Secretary in n tabular form As a basis, the imports of 1940 are taken. The whole importsof that year amounted to'$107,141,319 Of this amount $93,917,933 are to par duties, leaving $13,373,534 free of duty Tlus amount, as will be seen from the table, the Secretary estimates will yielJ $77 443,335 of revenue, after deducting drawbacks and expenses of collection. The gross amount of duties. $3*1,907.135, gives oa average duty on imports of 34.76 per cant, which is 10 per cent higher than the compromise act after June next. In many cose* the duties proposed arc higher than those proposed by the report of Mr Salionstall, and in other cues lower. The , report before u* adheres much closer to tho proper obI ject, which i? one exclusively of revenue, than does the disgraceful one of Mr. Saltonttall. The notion of protec* tion ie. however still indulgod in to some extent The I childish argument that the exclusive supply of certain manufactures is essential to our ' real independence," is i unworthy of a member of the Cabinet.

The report and propositions are, however, the host that hare yet been i presented. But the Secretary fails to show, even it the imports should continue undiminished from the basis he ha* assumed, that the revenue will lie sufficient.
