Application-; made at this office. < h'l.V Doixcis TO-UAY. GkKAT P.VPKR TO-MORBOW. We iiave three important matters to attend to, on this blessed day. 1st. The charge and verdict in the case of Colonel Stone : 2J. The second meeting and probable row in th1 Common Council: 3d. And the farewell speech of the eloquent Tom Marshall, in the Tabernacle. All these will make a great?a mighty?n prodigious paper to-morrow. From Washington. We learu from Washington that there can he no doub' of a favorable termination to the negociations with England, now conducted by Lord Ashburton on one side, and Mr. Webster on the other. Mr. Webster has gone down to Boston, for the purpose of superintending the progress of the movement, near the governments of Maine nnd Massachusetts. It is understood that both States will agree to a conventional line, and the part to be retained by England is to be reimbursed by some equivalent in money or territory. On Friday last, Mr. Wickliffe, the Postmaster General, left Washington, and will arrive here tomorrow or next day. Ilis purpose is a little relaxation, blended with a desire to see how ihe post-offices work?and also to he near the scene of action m Rhode Island, to consult with Mr. Webster, should any difficulty occur tfiere. It is believed in litgh quarters that the charter party in Rhode Island ought at once to pass a law in favor of universal suffrage, and grant a constitution to that state as free as those which the other New England States enjoy. Until this be done, the agitation cannot cease. With respect to appointments nnd removals, we learn that much movement is expected soon to take ' lace in the N. York Custom House. What removals or appointments may take place we cannot yet preoisely tell. Mr. Roberts the collector of Philadelphia will probably be removed, for good and sufficient reasons, and B. W. Richards Esqr., formerly Mayor of that city i9 to be appointed in his place.? Mr. Williamson the Recorder of the Land Office m Washington is to he First Auditor ol the Treasu ry, and Mr. Burr, formerly connected with the N. Y. Whig, a now-paper of this eitv, is to be appointed Recorder. Colonel Blake of Indiana will he Commissioner of the Land office. These movements are all of some importance? and will add force and respect to the administration. The violence and ferocity of the two extremes of tli:- old parties, now forming the motley opposition, arc gradually working a moral revolution in the country at large. There must be harmony and confidence between the head of the administration and all the various classes of public offi' er.s, or the government never can satisfy i.-'miiirj', <>r i-unuun lis iinnirn. iMr. vventer, while in this city last week, told his friends her::?" (lentlemen, the President is a men ot" undoubted tnlent, integrity and honor, and he most b.-sust lined at all hazards from the open and K-cret attack-" of the factious extremes." Tli sense of the country is gradually cumin? right?and the next Congressional elections will jipeak in a voice of thunder to the new opposition. Mark that, lie in no hurrv. Things are coming right in the natural way. Mohai.s ami Rki.ioion.?Who introduced the valuable system of reporting verbatim all the Moral and Religious Anniversaries ! The editor of the New York Herald. Who has paid more money to give a lull account of the proceedings of these societies than all the other editors in New York 1 H-nnett of the Herald. Who has done more to enlighten the community on the currency than all others ? We of the Herald. Yet such men as Hiram Ketchum dare to denounce the morals of the Herald. Away with them. SiMir un Sekmo* ani> Sisoclar Sokxe at the Qvaker Mketixh m Rose-street Yesterday.? A celebrated preacher named White, of the highly respectable body of Quakers, termed Ilicksites, delivered a very ringular sermon at the Rose-street meeting house yesterday, denouncing the Temperance Societies and the Abolition Societies in no very m-nsured terms. As soon as he was through, an Abolition preacher rose to answer him ; hut before he had finished, the meeting broke out. It was a singular scene. All the youth, beauty, and fashion of the female portion ot the Ilicksites were present, and a m >st brilliant group they formed. Among the gentlemen we noticed Cornelius W. Lawrence, !*< ) , Cap! tin Coleman of the Astor house, Abraham iv'il, K=sj,, and several other distinguished citizens. We skill endeavor to find room for the sermon tomorrow. In the mean tim", we may state, as a sample of hi- rem irks the following. He said: "So disgustin* is the conduct of the hireling lecturers of these ?.ocieti?-s (the Temperance and Abolition Societies) that if it were possible to ruke up all the corrupt dead thr 1 b-tried beneath the rums ot unctent Rahvlon : n.i ; in ii >i i iij'i n;iu ruiicn i nrcaws uiai pcrisueu ?r ."*odnm and Gomorrah, I believe thai they would rec-iwd with open arms l?y these societies, and hailed a* worthy fellow laborers, and coadjutors in the em? of their righteousness, as they term it." 51k remarks .ippaared to create a irreat sensation anu">({ the highly fashionable audience present.

Utoiir. < >n Saturday night la?t the trial of Win. L. Stone, ditor of the Commercial Advertiser, for a libol on the Court of Oyer and Terminer, was brought up to !j* |k>iiii that wisely separates the District At| lornev's i-)K-ech from the Judge's charge to the iury. For four days during last week, the Oyer and Terminer was occupied with hearing the evidence, and listening to the pleadings in this case. To-day at 10 o'clock the Court again opens, and Judge Kent will probably deliver one of the most interesting charges on the law of libel and the liberty of the press, that ever was given to the world. We expect this lrom his great talents?from his high moral feelings?from his independent character. Exacting thus of the Judge we have made arrangements by meals of our admirable coipt of reiwrters, and our vast physical and mechanical apparatus, to publish this able Charge, in an EXTRA HERALD in twenty-five minutes after the Judge ,\?ll I,,..,.. 1 *i? : i I ? m??u uatc unncicu n iu me jury, no iook out newnboyi and newsmongers. Now for a word of truth and soberness on this trial?this singular trial?this extraordinary trial. We have heretofore cautiously avoided making any remarks on the very extraordinary developei ments which the examination of the witnesses, and the speeches of counsel, have made. Wc had no 1 desire to say a word that might lay a straw in the way of Col. Stone, although for years he lias pursued us like a hyena?abused ua in public and in private?and behaved more like a heathen than an amiable Christian. We have no wish that it should go hard with him, although he and his rln/ur have done all they could do to destroy our reputation, and to prostrate our establishment. We trust, and hope, and prav, to llcaven, that he may have a sate deliverance, and that he may, from this day forward, begin a derided moral reform in the quality ami kind of bis feelings and emotions, to be entertained toward his fellow editors and fellow men. Of the very extraordinary endence given on that trial by the several witnesses, and particularly by Judge Noah, we shall give a fair and candid opinion hereafter Indeed, the perusal of that evidence has astonished us. Why 1 We find Judge Noah kindly desiring to have a nollt j'rouqui entered up in our case, on the avowed ground that the whole prosecution against us was a mere ftagwtWZr.while at the same time,the self-same Judge, in the witneau stand, acknowledges that he was one of the first to give the cue or inkling of the conspiracy topoorStone, which formed the basis of the attack on the two Aldermen on the Bench, because they only inflicted a fine of *350. When we came to this part of the evidence we burst out into this Shukeperian strain :? I la ' ha! ha! Ho! ho! ho! He ! he ! he ! .So, by this singular disclosure, it would appear that Stone was merely used as a very respectable culspaw for lighting other person's quarrels. On ihis ground alone we would have some bowels of companion for him?and trent him as tenderly as possible? ua tenderly as a i>oor pigeon dove. Another funny feature of the evidence is the state, ment that " several ladies" went to Judge Noah to intercede for the sinner of the Herald. We should like to know who these ladies were, in order that we could thank them in person for their good sense Rood taste, good feelings, and good looks?for such ladies must he beautiful. This is a fart that we never heard of before?but it shows what we have always said, that the ladies ol New York take n deep and abiding interest in the wellare and prosperity of the New York Herald and its wonderful editor, arid that they stiek to us through evil and through good report. (?od bless them from the hot. torn of our heart. But enough?and probably more than enough of comment on the evidence. In these few words we wish to sav nothing to interfere with the njieratinn of justice?or disrepertful to the honorable court. After the close of this trial we shall take up the subject and review it at length, comprehending also the miserable attempts made against our very excellent counsel, John A. Morrell, Ksq., who throughout that atl'air conducted himself with the greatest talent, skill, tack and unsullied honor, aa n counsel, a man and a Christian. He never degraded lus chararter as an honornbie counsel, by savage attacks on the reputation of third parties, not on the record. He never affected to be a saint, hut acted like a heathen. There is, however, one or two features that we ennnot pass over. The false nnd libellous charges which have been hea|>cd of late upon our character nnd our journal, shall not pass away without some legal notion. Hirain Ketchum, in defending his client, had no legal right to assail our reputation, which in point of morals, intellect and every elemeut that constitutes a man, is at least equal to his, or to that of any other man that crawls over the stones of Wall street. In his opening speech he charged us with " levying black mail"?with all sorts of corruption and abomination. These and all other charges we pronounce, foul and audacious libels ?foul and nudacious falsehoods of the deepest and blackest dye?and we shall ascertain, by an action for libel against this man, whether a counsel has a right to go beyond the record, and to assail other men's reputation not onttial?not even a witnessnot in any way concerned with the affair. David (Jrnhani, his associate counsel, did not go so tar on the road to error as Ketchum, but even David went too tar in his allusions and remarks?anrl in hn l?in nr. cedent, talented and worthy father could have heard his words in his green grave, he would have rebuked his eon with a gentle sigh of reproach from that eternity in which he enjoys, as he deserves, everlasting bliss and happiness. We cannot?we will not any longer pass over these matters?or permit the cliqutt and organs of Wall street, to trample upon our name, our character, our reputation, and our rights. On the 6th of the present month, seven years were completed since we first started the New York Herald? and during the whole of that period we have been persecuted and calumniated by a wicked and malicious conspiracy of editors, financiers, brokers, politicians and bankrupts, whose centre is in Wall street, and extremities in the bottomless pit. In the course of that time we have accomplished greater results in the vast field of moral, financial, political and intellectual reform, than any single editor, in any country, aver did. We started our career on the broad basis of truth, inslicc, morals, religion, science, and sound principles in hanking, commerce and currency. We cast off at once and lorever the control and authority ol cliqutt, nnd planted ourself on the broad field of American inind, American thought, and American independence. The Wall street diquu?the Wall street newspapers felt their power at stake, and for seven years they have been endeavoring to destroy our character?to accomplish our ruin?and to put down our establishment?and to consign us to int unv and contempt. But they have failed?the American people have supported us. because we wi re right?and we have nt this moment a living evidence of this fact, in possessing a larger circulation than all the Wall street prints in existence. t?ur apicrcratt circulation at fhit moment it THIRTY THOUSAND copiti, tiru/ incrtating daily. This is the whole secret of the vindictive persecutions that we have borne?and of the ridiculous attempts to put down a man and principles (hat form ?ne ol the great features of the present Rge of the world. The Wall street prints and Wall street liquet never would care a button for our morals, if we did not " head off" their had schemes, and publish a better, and more popular paper Not they.

Proceedings of both Houm). Mr. Benton gave notice in the Senate this morning, tlut he would on Monday introduce a bill for the armed occupation of that part of Florida which i-hable to disturbance by the Indians, agreeubly to the suggestion of the President. Some private business was transacted, and at one o'clock the Senate went into executive session. It is understood that the naval nominations are to be taken up. The question first to be settled is whether the Senate will agree to the increase recommended by the Secretary of the Navy. If that is decided in the affirmative, the nominations will generally be confirmed without delay. In the House, an hour or upwards was spent in squabbling about a resolution olfered by Mr. Dodge of Wisconsin, inquiring into some of Gov. Doty's ecceuiriciues. -viier amending lae preamble, tlie resolution was adopted. The Appropriation Bill was then taken up, and the House is now engaged upon the Senute amendments. The amendment of the Senate which increased the appropriation for the Boston Custom-house from fifty to one hundred thousand dollars, and which the House had disagreed to, was insisted upon by the Senate, and the I louse now insists by a vote of 79 to 71. The House will occupy the day upon the amendments. Rhode Island.?The great mass democratic meeting, on the state oi affairs in Rhode Island, will be held to-morrow afternoon in the Park. We suppose it will be a tremendous crowd. A full report of the proceedings will be given on the morning after. Yesterday we received the follow ing flaming article from the charter party in Providence:? A Horrible Plot IMscoveretl It A most foul mid ferocious plot to butf her the people of Providence, lias just come to light. Evidence, conclusive, and of the very highest authority, can be produced to establish the following statement" viz..:?that Thomas W. Dorr did, previous to his leaving this citv, write a letter to Levi D. Slamm, Editor of the Now r.ra, of the city of New York, requesting him to raise five hundred men in that city to be sent armed to Rhode Island! This letter was shown by Mr. Slamm to a gentleman of this city, who is a strong Suffrage man, and svas supposed to be in favor of Dorr, and his course of violence and blood. In a spirit of independence and good citizenship, which docs him great honor, he informo 1 Dorr, upon his arrival in New York, that bo should go with him in no forcible meaeures, and communicated to him the knowledge hehadofhis (Dorr's) application to Slamm, which Dorr acknowledged to he true. We insert the following statement of two individuals of this city of undoubted credibility to establish the general fact that Dorr has made such aii application.?A more particular statement will be forthcoming if the fact is denied. '* Wo hereby state that wo returned from New York this morning, and while there, learned froin unquestionable authority, that Thomas W. Dorr, before leaving this city, wrote a letter to Levi D. Slamm, editor of the New Era, of tlia city of New York, for 600 men to be raised in New York, and sent armed to Rhode Island. J. B NICHOLS, C. C. POTTER. PaofiDKMLE, May 14, 1942. " Our army swore terribly in Flanders," says Uncle Toby?and so say we of Rhode Island?but we don't think they w ill fight. A little blood-letting would no donht do a little good, particularly if a few of the leaders on each side were the subjects of the lancet. The Mormons. Arlington House, May 8, 19-12. Doctor Bennett:? Sir i? It is rci>ortcd in this city and elsewhere, and generally believed by persons unfriendly to the Mormons, or "Latter Day Saints," that, like the shaking quakere, they hold their property in common stock, and that the men uud women connect is promiscuous intercourse without any regard to the holy bonds of matrimony. Now 1 assure you, sir, that these are slanders put into theinouthsof their enemies by the father of lies, the devil, having no foundation in truth. 1st. Property, real and personal, is held by individuals in the same way and with equal security a* atnoii; all other citizens of this country. 2. l'herc is no people on earth who arc more circumspect in their behaviour, nor who hold the matrimonial tie in more sacred reverence than the Mormons or " Latter Day Saints." 3d. 'f hey lire Christians in the fullest sense of the term, believing in the Old and New Testament as inspired books, revelations delivered on the Lustern Continent, and in the "' Rook of Mormon" as a collateral corroborative history, embracing an account of the aborigines, and the Ancient Church of Christ, that is said to have been established on this continent, at an early period of the Christian era.? The Book of Mormon is not received by them as a separate and distinct revelntion for the government of the human family, nordoesthe " Prophet Joseph" claim any other merit but the finding of it where it was deposited, nor does he claim even this, as both the finding and the translation have it is asserted, have been the work of Divine Providence, from the direction of the holy spirit. Do not all the sects profess to he directed hv the holy spirit? The yunkers. or Friends,are moved, both men and VMMM, to speak and act by it. So are the Meihodist* and Rapti?t.?, as well a? most other sects, Why thea should it be objected to, that a good man, uiider the same inlluence, should not be directed to find a hidden treasure which may prove of great value to our race ! Believing, as I do, in Christianity I can see nothing in it unworthy o( credit, although 1 am no Mormon; at least, "l have not been immersed yet. 1 intend, however, to make a request of the Prophet Joseph, should I decide on joining his church, to have the honor of the first dip in the baptismal fount in ihe great temple now being ererted in the city of Nauvoo, Illinois. Again, is the seeing of a vision now any more wonderful than it was in the time of Paul! Has Cod changed? Has religion changed! That is, the sentiment of religion. Has the constitution of man changed! iVies he'not possess the same senses, same passions, tlir same desire ol happiness,the same hope ot immortality, that he did in tne time ot Abraha in, Mo?es or Jesus! Itoes not the earth revolve on I its axis and |>erform it? periodic revolutions in its orbit,as it did in ancient times! Do not animals and vegetables originate from a germ, mature and decay as they did in the dlVIo( miracles as thev are csll ed! Hons not the sun rule the (lav nnd th*? moon tba night. nsin formertimes! Tlien, why not the holy spirit, which wr all must believe pervades and fill" universal nature, iutluense the soul of man now a* in former times! " Thy spirit doth in my apirit shins, As shines the sun 1?nm in a drop of dew." No man prove the negative. We therefore Mhouhi not permit our preiuuice to rondemn what we mav not he able to comprehend. We should judge the tree by it* fruit. Cincinnati's.

We observ e no news jn the Noticioso of any importance, the paper being filled with translations from American and European papers. Freights have declined very much within the last two davs, and when she left, engagementa could not he made for Great Britain better than 21. 8, to 21. 1ft. The weather continues unusually dry, and the coffee plantations are suffering much from the drought. Sales of all kinds of provisions are very dull, and Monks large. There was hut one English steamer in port, the Solwav, and she was to |e;ive for England on the 1st inst. The Tweed was still at Chagres, waiting for ronls. The mails are now obliged to go by way of Jamaica and the leeward isles, which causes much delay. They expect soon to nave a boat running direct to Turk's Island. The operatic corns have been reinforced by Valtellini, a basso absoluto, and Maiocchi, prima donna. They are to give twelve representations, after which they go into summer quarters. Pei-artihe of the Dragoons from or* Frontier.?The Western Missourian savs: We leant from Westport that five companies of Dragoons under Col. Kearney, passed that place on Thursday, under orders, for the Arkansas and Bed River.? This taxes from our frontier, the whole force assigned by the Government for its protection. We understood that this command had been ordered on to the Platte, to select the nosts contemplated to be established from Council Bluffs to the Mountains, hilt have changed their destination owing to the unsettled state of our relations with Mexico, and to meet any contingencies that might cull for our interference, in "consequence of the invasion of Texas by the Mexicans. We understood that n force of 100 infantry and-190 dragoons are assembled at Fort Towson, near the Texian frontier, to overawe the ('addos. Cuinm.tnehes and Choctaws. who an- in >!. liance with Mexico. One company of Infantry is ordered to Fort Leavenworth, from the Mississippi. A formal demand has been forwarded to Mexico for the release of the Americans captured with the Texan* at Santa Fe. and a part of the home squadron sent into the liulf ot Mexico, to enforce the demand by a demonstration on Vera Cruz and Tatnpico. TcRBini.x IIaii- Sturm.?On Wednesday a violent hail storm paused through Stratford, Cheshire and Meriden, in New Haven county, Connecticut. A letter front Stratford, published in the New Haven Daily Herald, savs :? " It commenced from a heavy black cloud front the West, bringing several claps of thunder with rain, hut soon after was changed to hnil stones an inch in diameter. The first I measured came through the window and was pieked tilt from the floor. Hut soon window glass appeared to exhibit little or no protection, and thougli the storm was directly in the rear of my house, and three window shutters previously closed, yet the hail broke thirtyseven squares, and thirty of them were 16 bv 12, and stout glass?the others in the basement. "Had the wind Been at either corner, ntv loss of glass would have been trebled. As the rain still continues, 1 have only heard from my nearest neighbor, Mr. N., who has lost a greater number of glass, though his were prim ipallv from hot beds in his garden. 1 p!ar< d six hail stones brought in f ront the rain after the hail erased, upon a scale, which measured full six inches Each one was an inch in diameter, and almost as solid as a musket ball. Thousands of the same size might have been gathered, and doubtless many larger, if gathered sooner.*' Cauda Lntfrprise.?<hir Canadian neighbors arc really going ahead since they have commenced feeding liberally on Yankee breadstuff. They are about to establish a line of steamers on Lake Erie to touch at the |>orts over the water, and the Port llaron Advertiser states that the Canada road, through front Port r-nriua. opi*>sitr Port Huron, to London, C.C., is in a fair way of completion as a plank road, the company being actively engaged in the work The Advertiser thinks thin road, when completed, will divert much of the trade from Detroit into Canada, through Port Huron.

The " Lyceum Reporter and Critical Mi*ellany," published by Smith it Coolie, 131 \r--sau street, and edited by Joseph W. Wright, Civil Engineer, in entering upon u field hitherto unoccupied, bids fair, if its prospectus is fully carried out, of being a very interesting and useful journal. The editor, who i? the aiithn- of a framroaron the English language, seems to wish to revive, however, the exploded and useless fashion of spelling words ending witht with the addition of k. For instance?he spclla public,' jentitic, critic, and similar words,/niblick, jcuutuk, critick, fee. This may be correct, according to ancient usages, but wr doubt whether he will induce the public to use again what they have cast aside as superfluous. The " Ladies' Companion," for May, published by W. W. Snowden, 1()9 Fulton street, conies to us, as usual, with much interesting matter. The plates, which accompany this number?one representing "Deer Stalking" in the Highlands of Scotland, and the other entitled " The Young Mu atcian," are both imllm Mixed up, however, with the good, there is some indifferent, and also some matter positively frivolous and useless. On the whole, we presume, however, the Indies will read it, and continue to patronise it. The " Knickerbocker" for this month, published by John Bisco, 139 Nassau street, sustains the high character which it has obtained for sterling worth, in its original papers and editorial criticisms. Among the latter we notice one of " Ahnaurrus," a poetn by n Virginian, which is written in an independent manner. The writer has read the poem without reference to politics, and in consequence gives a fair, honest and impartial criticism. We recommend our readers to peruse it. The " Boston Miscellany," published hv'Bradbury, Sod en iV Go.?We find nothing worth mentioning in this, hut a plate entitled the "Oaken Bucket," and another of Taris Fashions, which are both good. " AarTntus," by George L. Curry & Co., 156 Broadway, contains an article on Criticism, which worthy of attention. There is the usual number of entertaining sketches, and the city article, on the case of the Creole, takes .the tigltl ground, though we hope that tHisqitestion has, ere now, been settled by Lord Ashburton at Washington. The " Democratic Review," contains the usual amount of matter, a large proportion of which possesses no interest but for the political partisan.? There is an elaborate article exposing the misstatements in Jsines' Naval Occurrences, and the remarks of the Edinburgh Review thereon, ard on Cooper's Naval History, with some other papers, which will repay the reader, however, for a perusal. " Hcnt's Merchant's Magazine."?This valuable mercantile Journal, with its masses of statistics and general information, so important and interesting to all engaged in commerce and trade, must he read bv those whom it more particularly concerns, to enable them to judge of the service it will he to them, for reference Sec. The American edition of the Foreign Qimrterly Review, published by J. M. Muson of this city, furnishes our citizens, in a cheap form, with this, one of the choicest of the British periodicals. It contains an article on the French Police, the creed of the Dnizes in Syria, and other interesting matter. The " Edinburgh Review" is republished also by Mrs. Mason; it contains an article on the relations of France, England, and America, one on the Budget of Sir It. Peel, and other interesting and valuable matter, including a review of a work on (ho action of Glaciers. No. 1 of " IIectir O'IIai.lorak and nrs Man," by \Vr. H. Maxwell, is published, with illustrations, by D. Appleton A: Co. The author's reputation renders it unnecessary for us to recommend this work, which its readers will find both amusing and interesting. The " SorntKHN Literary Messenger" for April 1842, published in Richmond. Vs., by T. W. White, has reached us, nnd contains an unusual amount of excellent nnd deeply interesting matter. The first article is one full of deep interest to the inhabitants of this city, being a notice of Fitz < Ircen Halleek, our well known und esteemed poet. The whole contents of this popular periodical merit nu attentive perusal, and as the citizens of our glorious republic patronise merit in contradistinction to rank, we feel confident that it will meet with the support and patronage which it deserves. The CatUolic Expositor for May, published at 169 Fulton street, is devoted to the advancement of lloman Catholicism, nnd front the matter which it contains will no doubt he read extensively by those of that persuasion. Godfrey Malvkiink, or the Life of An Author, by Thomas Miller?published by William A. Le Blank, 377 Broadway . We have read the first number of this work, which is humourously illustrated, and shall await with impatience for its continuation. My Little Song Boor, by Mrs. Sarah J. JIale? Boston ; James B. Dorr, pithlisher. This is a collection of little songs adapted to the capacities of young children, and all containing a moral appropriate to make a just impression on their uninformed minds. An Inqttry into the Necessity or a He-organization of the United States Navy, published by .1. Murphv, of Baltimore. Anything that is written on the subject of the right arm of our means of defence from foreign attacks, and more particularly st the present time, is sure to meet with attention from every patriotic American citizen. Lf.CTI'RES on the chemistry of Soil. and Mani ue in the shape nt a Manual, by Samuel L. Dana, for sale by A. V. Blake, 54 Gold street. We recommend a persusal of this work to those who are fond of exercising their leisure in cultivating plants, flowers, fee. Apfknihx to Kixric's Law Cojipbndicm, published by Gould, Banks A: Co., 145 Nassau street.? This is a work which will be useful to others besides lawyers. Dictionary op Arts, Manupacttres and Mines ?By Audrnr Ure, M. J).. F. R. S., fyr. fyr.?The fith number of this work has reached us front La Roy Sunderland, 138 Fulton street. It contains an amount of information on the manufactures, fee. of great Britain, not to be found in any other work extant, and should be in the hnndsof every one who desires information on this subject, i The same publisher has issued the first number of a New Periodical, to be entitled the Magnet, devoted to the consideration of Physiology, Phkenoi.ooy, Physiognomy, Patuagnomy, Psychology, nnd Magnetism. These subjects embrace a wide field, and will give ample scope for an able person to make a highly interesting |ournal. This number contains mucn that is interesting and curious. Merry's Mcskc.m for Children?Edited by the Author of Peter Parity'* Title*, and published by Bradbury, Sodcn 4" Co., 127 Nassau street.?This is a very interesting work, admirably calculated to Diiiiibp iiwfriif>t rand Mitcrfst vminir urnainj ami t*\ implant that taste for reading in their breasts without which life is a blank.

Mr. Post is deserving of great l>raise for his exertions to supply the laboring classes with the best publication? of the day, in a cheap and readable form. Sander's Series of School Books?Publithed by Dayton $ Sarton. corner Fulton ami tit.. and consisting of Primer, Spelling Cook, and School Header, first, second, third and fourth books, appear admirably calculated for use either in school# or in the nursery. Tiik Missionary's IUt outer, a memoir, is published also by Dayton <V Saxton.?It contains an account of the discovery of the Sandwich Islands, ; the events which led to the establishment of a mis sion there; the residence of Mr. and Mrs. Thurston; j their trials, birth of their daughter Lucy, the pecu- j liar characteristics of her mind; her conversion, , illness, and death.

An Exposition of the Creed? By the bite<i Rithon of Chetter? Published by D.

The dii ry is pitch an one as is rarely met with; it gives t true and faithful account of ull occurrences during her varied life, with her first attempt at nuthorship, and other particulars, both amusing and interesting to general readers. We are mistaken if it does not meet with a very extensive and rapid sale. Krle, Pa, [Concs|Kmdeiict of the Herald.] Erie, Pa., May 6, 1842. Sjrimj? in Erie?Finance and Currency?A Marria^r?Bridal Party?Tom Lioyd?Horace Greely , *c. James g. Bennett, Esq Dear Sir * Bright and lovely Spring is again upon us, in all her radiant beauty. The warblers are in the midst of their annual concerts, and the ladies spinning street-yarn. Jack Frost, with his chilling blast, and icy bridge, is vetoed ;?and, in lieu, we have the mild and soothing land breeze, with the occasional ooo?o?, ix)o?o? ot nigh-pressure steamers a9 they boom in and out of the bay. Thus wags the world with us, as Time, that old grave digger, passes us along to his great cemetery?Eternity. financial matters have not changed materially 9incc my last, except that " Crackee nioney" is growing quite plentiful?the Erie Bank having made arrangements to issue #350,000 of it, and is now cracking it off at the rate of #2,000 per day ; which is paid out to the contractors on the Canal, and goes immediately into circulation. An attempt was inadea few days since to cry it down in Pittsburg ; for what reason I know not, except that some of our merchants had gone there with large amounts to exchange it for eastern drafts. The young monster is in ttalu ijito, the assignees in Philadelphia having come to the conclusion it was not a good policy to be too ' wolfish" about collecting their debts. Religious matters are going ahead "With a perfect looseness." At the " New-Light" Presbyterian Church, there is a roaring revival, which has been kept up for the last three weeks, where scores of the "old and young, grave and gay," are ''forsaking the world and its follies, and giving their hearts id God." Mr. Clark, ofrittsburg, is the great "Apostle of light." The Methodists have just concluded one in which they were very successful. Also, a band of "Later-day Paints" are talking up " Joe Smith" at n wonderful rate. So, from present appearances, between Religion and Temperance, Old Satan and his abettor, King Alcpho), will ltave hut a softy chance for sjwculation in these parts. The iron steamer isnot commenced yet?probably the department have been awaiting the passage of the Loan Bill. Neither has General Reed commenced the one lie has had in comtemolation for some time; however, 1_ presume he wishes Uncle Sam to test the matter first. Politics are quite dull?with the exception of an effort by some of the Tyler Wliigs, and Democrats, to form a "working mens' " party. How it will succeed is amongst tne things that may be. They elected ihe Burgess and a majority of the Council at the late churter election. Operations on this division of the Canal are suspended; at least, so far as getting pay from the State at present is concerned. This is a great bore on us. With the whole line except three and a half miles complete, to suspend operations is insufferable. Was the line once complete from here to Beaver, on the Ohio River, a distance of only one hundred and thirtv-seven miles, 1 have no hesitation in saying it would he the. most profitable improvement in the State, it being the shortest, and most direet rout from Western New York and the Canadns, to the Ohio and Mississippi Rivers. The coal itself would pay for the cnnnl in a few years, to say nothing of the other trade. It is in agitation to procure an act at the adjourned session of the Legislature, to allow the counties through which it passes, viz.- Erie, Crawford, and Mercer, to make it themselves, either by an arrangement of state tax or otherwise. The proposition to sell the State Improvements to incorporated companies, will not go doWn In I'enflsylvania?mark the prediction. Amongst the other acquisitions to our place.

James Buchanan ? The happy pair are spending the "Iloney Moon" with us, but ere long, will leave for Lancaster, Pa., the residence of the Bachelor candidate for the Presidency. who was late guardian to the bride.

What has become of Tom Lloyd 1 Nay, I ask this in none of the common testing of the "day.? Tom was once a citizen of this place. His father came here in 1812 from Canada, where he refused to take the oath of allegiance to his majesty, and consequently had to "step out." He has lived in this county ever since. Tom and Horace (irecly emigrated from here to your city nbout one time.? Horace was a singularly awkward looking towheaded younster when he left, but has matured info a distinguished editor. But Tom, the rascal! managed to worm himself into omce, and then Swart woutcd with the de|K>sites.
