NEW YORK HERALD. !V?w York, Sunday, May ?0, 184*4. The \?TJ' und < That the eHect which the promotions made since January, IflJl, liave liail on the annual coat of the service, inay appear in the light ot the "almighty dollar" and " cent" view which the lute vote in Congress would otherwise produce, we haie prepared the following statement ot facts, and let ull read and ponder them ; and see whether the "esprit du corps" of our eutire naval service should be bro aen up lor suon a paltry sum t>y tins inosi economical Congress, who vote to pay themselves forty dollars for every hundred miles they travel, or certily that they travel?and eight dollars a day during l ongress, when some are absent more than half their time. Now for the calculation since January 1st, 1H41 : The Navv list has been increased 13 C aptains at $3500, is $33,500 41 CommanJeri, at $1*>00 each, is 73.800 40 Lioutenants, at $1300, is 48,000 $154,300 .Vow the grade of Passed Midshipmen has been decreased in the same time from 220 to 103, which saves by the promotions and death vacancies, the salaries of 117 of this grade, at #800 a year each, or 5?H3,(>00, which leaves only $60,000 a year, as the expense of promoting over one hundred officers, who have been promoted by the actual wants of the service, at tha same time that it was only rendering tardy justice to officers who had served from twelve to twenty years in the grades from which they were advanced. And now, all those who have arrived near promotion, are to be kept back eight years, (for it will take that time by deaths and resignations, to bring the Navy back to January 1, 1841,) before any new promotions can be made. Out upon such parsimony?such paltry legislation and shameful breach of good faith to the Navy. Vtw York Tkmi-kranch Lkctvrers in Boston.? During the last few days, a great Temperance Meeting was held at Boston, at which we find some of the greatest orators of the human race. Two front mis cuj appeared, me tier. Mr. ration ot the Presbyterian Church, and the Hev. !?andy Welsh, formerly the " Prince ot Humsellcrs." These two made speeches at the Odeon, which we annex as samples ot ilir dith*rent kinds ot' Temperance oratory The 15ev. Mr Patton speaks well, hut we rather think that the H ev. Sandy Welsh speaks better. Thi Hev. Dr. Patton, of New York, was next called upon. Me complained, that in fifteeen minutes, the time allotted for each speaker, lie could not tell one hull the virtues of *'in.ii witch, while the virtues of rum lie could name in three minutes or much less time. He took up the case of the poor hrute, complaining that he was unfairly treate I in the remark, that a man w us "as drunk as it brute," the lutter animal being vastly higher in the scale of being, than the former, lie then spoke of poison, asking I'russic Acid if lie ever caused a man to beat his wife with the tongs, or caused him to look all sorts-of- I ways t Prussic A id answered "No. I kill men in a i stiort time, and belong to a respectable family." Alcohol w as next brought to the test, who asserted in the most po- | sitive manner, that he never was guilty of killing an individual. He put to this nice gentleman some further pertinent questions, and he answered much to the satisfaction 1 of tin audience. "Perfect Love" was shown oil in rather ' an amusing manner, first creating tenderness between in- I div iduals, but finally causing tongs, broom-stick, and other i amiable domestic weaponsto My about in rather a surprising * uncomfortable manner. Alcohol was strenuously advised | to sign the pledge, and was told by the Hev. Speaker, that | the alleys were so densely crowded, that he could hardly m ike his escape, lie proceeded for some time, in the ' same amusing manner, and described with much effect the mo.le in which drink was sometimes taken. First, one ' gl iss?that being lonesome, a second was taken to keep it s company?the two quarrelling, a third must be taken to preserve peace, but the three getting together by the ears, ? a fourth, an immense one,was required to settle the others, | which instead of effecting that object, effectually settled , tin- Door fellow w ho ifrniit ib?m u? ...:.i. some ^ "Tv feeling remarks iijion the subject.

He said he had been as H "trunk in Boston as in any other place he ever \ isited. He described the ?vils of drinking in a very humorous style, telling of tin' headaches, nausea, Sic. consequent upon a full <li ink. He said the onlv safety for those who do not drink, was to lake out a policy of insurance against loss or damage by rum. lie said he hail been always ready for a spree. iini thought that he did not drink much, even when 1 h- was in the li abit of drinking twenty-five glasses a day. lie thought the Doctors might be opposed to the cause, as it ruined their business, lie said the Police was ruined j in New York, as but few drunkards were now to be found in tin'streets. He observed that he was never a gutter drunkard, as he invariably went to lied when he found " he hail got enough"?slept until sober?then rose and went at it again'. He described the dilemma which he 1 once got into when drunk, having engaged to perform at I tin Bowery Theatre, or to forfeit the sum of five hundred dollars.

To secure Bennett's countenance before he ap- t pear< I. he told him he hail engaged to appear at the Bow p in order to obtain one hundred dollars to give to the h poor Widow '< society.

[Kroin Le Pat note ol Port an Prince of lltli May.] On Saturday, the 7i!i in.-t., at twenty minutes past m m. in the evening, we experienced some severe locks i>t an earthquake, which put the whole town i commotion. At mid-day a large meteor was pereived passing to the east. The heat was excessive, md thick clouds hung over the neighboring inouniin. going in a direction from the .-.outlirasi to the .mrtneast. The seamen who were in tlie roads report that they the shock before they saw the c?...i,? 1.4 :_j:_... .1 . :l . n.i.-i- ^.ia?r, " "nuiii muicuie uiai me shock. line tram the eust. Many persons, liowever, think ihey observed that the oscillations came from the north and went south. 'I hen were two very decided shocks?the lirst was not as long as the second : the latter was the most violent, and lasted about three minutes. All abandoned their houses, and the streets were filled with the affrighted population. But a little more, and Port au Prince would have been the scene of a disaster similar to that of 1770, a fatal year, which occurred to the minds of every one. There is scarcely a single brick or stone itouse which has not suffered damage ; they are all more or less damaged. Some, it is sain, are scarcely habitable. The facade of the Senate House, on which is sculptured the arms ol the 11 epuhlic. surmounted by the tree of liberty, were detached from the edifice, and broken into pieces by the fall. The interior of the huildimr lias also received some damage. In tfie night, between Saturday and Sunday, two shocks were again felt, hut not as violent as the first ?one at It) o'clock, and the other at 12. At 11 o'clock in the morning of Sunday came another -hock ; mass at church was interrupted, and those officiating at it r.m away, and many females fainted. .Monday, at 11 o'clock in the morning, another shock. The weather during these three days had a low ering, and at times a threatening appearance. Monday evening, u little rain, with excessive heat before and afterwards; night cool. Tuesday, a change of weather, return of the breeze, and apjiearance of I il J 11. In (he evening, nt eight o'clock, the weather was stormv, and every thing seemed to indicate an abundance of rain. The hopes we entertained yesterday have not been realized. On Wednesday, we wer# awoke at a few minutes before live in the morning by another earthquake. During these latter days it appears to us as if the earth on which we were walking was constantly quaking. Saint Mahi .?A letter from this town, which has been communicated to us, informs us that there, too, the earthquake of Saturday last was felt with the greatest violence; many houses have been so much shaken that they threaten every instant to tall down. (>n some plantations inline neighborhood of the town very great damage has been done. Gonaives, 8th May.?Yesterday afternoon an earthquake was felt in this city, which was so violent that most of the houses in it were thrown down. At the same time, in consequence of the -hock, a tire broke out in tlie apothecary's shop of Mr Invernezzes and consumed in afew inomentsan entire block. The flames destroyed every thing that came in their way ; there was not n drop of water in the town. All the houses which have not been burnt down have been injured by the earthquakes, and this morning the shocks occur every quarter of an hour. The sluqw of Madame John Joutl'erts and M. Dupy have fallen a prey to the dames. The shops of M R icliurd Dauphin and M. Oster, built of stone and brick, have fallen down. Houses and shops are inaccessible, and we write these hurried lines in the street. The whole population has passed the night in the middle ot' the streets*. Of the merchandize, which the merchants had been obliged to pile up in the public square, a great part has been stolen. _ It is iinlossible at present to estimate the extent of the lost*. The church, the prison, the national palace, the treasury, the arsenal, and the house which was geting ready lor the colonel commanding this district, ire now nothing more thun a heap of ruins. In short, 110 one liusescaped the calamity. Now, .chile we are writing, the fire is entirely exlin ruished, hut the sky looks threatening, and we are ifraid of more shocks. If unfortunately our fears hould be realized, there will he an end of the few muses remaining standing, and (ronaives will be no nore. The first and principal shock lasted about five ninutesand was followed during the night by more han twenty others which, though not so violent, vere equally fearful. It is now 8 o'clock in the morning. Not half nn iour has passed since we had another violent hock. The number of persons killed and wounded s not yet known. All the prisoners who were not niried under the ruins of the prison, have escaped. >od grant that the Capital may not have been aflicted with a similar misfortune. Cack IIavtiex, Wednesday, 6 o'clock in the eveling ?Most deplorable news is spreading through>ut the city. It has been brought by Mr. < >bas, son fthe commanding the District of Plaisance. n consequence of the earthquake which was felt iere on Saturday evening. Cape Town has entirely lisappearetl and with it two-thirds of the population. The families which escaped this disaster have taken vf'.igo at I,a Fosette, where they are without shel:er, clothes or provisions. Such is the news circulating in town, and which inlortunately is probably loo true. It isio he hoped, lowever. it will not he confirmed in its full extent. It is said that the President of I lay ti has given nlcrs to the physicians and officers of health uliched to the hospital, to set off this evening and iye their assistance to the unfortunate victims of Ins disaster. ('apt. Morris (of the brig Wm. Nelson, which rings the account) states in addition, that a few ours previous to his departure, a courier arrived nth information that at Cape Hnytien a fire sueeeded the earthquake, destroying the remaining louses, the powder magazine, and the remnant ot he inhabitants. St. Nicholas and Port l'aix are lid to be in ruins, and in fact all the towns on the iortli side of the island. One inhabitant of the Cape, i Mr. Ditpuy, was saved, all the rest being either rushed, or drowned by the sea, which rose and uhmerged the city. Fearful, fearful indeed, arc the inrticulars ot this awful visitation.

He says he was on shore at ite time, and did not see or hear anything until he ibserved the land having the motion of the sea, ocking to and fro.

I have attended the lectures of Mr. Miller and of Professor Hush, sufficiently to enable me to fotin a iirettv correct idea of the views of each. The sub Ut t. ??L. i:..i_ ... ji w vt iiu uuuui, very nine ctuuicu I?I understood in the Christian ehurcn. It is true that of late v ears i he re have been some writer* in Europe, and some in America, who have undertaken to expound the prophecies, but they liuve obtained but little, if any celebrity as yet. As I consider your patter an invaluable medium, through which to circulate facts, 1 beg you to favor tne with an insertion of the following : allowing me at the same time as an individual to oiler vou my hearty thanks for the vast benefit and gratification your full mid correct reports of the various anniversary meetings have yielded me. There can he no doubt that the views of Mr. Miller and Professor Bush are at present exciting some considerable interest in this community. As they differ somewhat in their views on the subject which occupies their chief attention, it will be my design to present to you some of the distinguishing characteristics of the two theories. Both believe some great crisis is near at hand. Tliey also agree that this great crisis will usher in a state of great and universal peace and happiness over all the earth. They diller with regard to the manner of bringing about this improved state of things. Professor Bush holds that it is to he brought about hv he gradual improvementof the human race, until a tate of paradisical happiness and glory; and that this state will continue tor a long and indefinite period. Mr. Miller believes that this state will be introduced suddenly, by the personal appearing o( Jesus Christ, the resurrection of the Saints who sleep in Christ, and the changing'of the living children of t ? J . ? L. _ .1 . * ...

Professor Hush thinks the thousand years of Revelation, chap. 20, has been fulfilled, in the casting out of Paganism from the Roman earth, and the establishment of (Christianity in its place. Mr. Miller holds that it will be fulfilled at the Second Advent of Christ and the resurrection of all the Saints from the dead to live and reign in the new or renovated earth a thousand years before the wicked dead will be raised, whom lie thinks will constitute, when raised, Cog and Magog. Professor 15. believes, that the resurrection takes place with every man at death ; that it is not the resiirreetion of the mortal body which dies, hut the putting on of an immortal body when the spirit leaves the body. Mr. M. holds that there will be at the coming of Christ a literal resurrection of the mortal bodies of the saints to immortality and eternnl life. That these bodies will be as really physical as the body of Christ was when he rose from the grave, and said to his? disciples " handle nie and see ; a spirit has not flesh and bones, as ye see me have." Its spirituality will not destroy its physical character. As to the time "f this anticipated crisis, both think it near at hand?Mr. M. that it will come in 1343, possibly, in 18-17, while Professor P. neither agrees nor disagrees with him. Having just thrown together these ]>ointH of contrast and agreement, 1 close by remarking, that while Professor 15. and his |>roselytes look upon many of Mr. Miller's views with ridicule and contempt, Professor Stewart, and other equally eminent scholars, look upon the views of Prof. Push and his proselytes in the same light.

Business Matters?Wetland Canal?Flour?Grain? Tlic IVca titer? iVomen?Trade?Finance?Theatricals. I>eak Bennett:? 'i'liis city having assumed its usual business u|>peurance, 1 am able to give you some information of what is going forward here. Thus far a very active business lias been done on the wharves in the way of forwarding, Arc., immense quantities of produce having passed hence through the canal to market, but the up freights are to a great extent light; this was to be expected, considering the times and the deranged state of the currency west. The Welland Canal which but a few years since excited but little attention, begins to create a good deal of feeling here and hereabouts. Canada millers have within a few months past, bought large amounts of grain throughout the western States, which has all passed through the Welland Canal to be converted into flour in Canada ; hitherto there has been no duty on the raw material, but of late a small duty has been imposed by the Canadian government, yet grain is transported to Montreal at a sufficiently low rate to almost make up the difference, and the millers on the other aide will continue to purchase wheat, and give a better price, too, than our own millers. The weather at present time is very fine, and our beautiful Main street is crowded with pretty girls, .-uyniK iwiiiiug 01 me 11milv nni' young married Indies; in fact, we can challenge any otht-r city, for the beauty and elegance of our ladies. Of course, there is nothing going on at this season in the party line ; but we occasionally have a steamboat ride, whic h 1 can assure you is delightful, whether on the lake or river ' Last Wednesday. Capt. Howe of the steamer Chesapeake, offered his splendid vsssel to the " Ladies Benevolent Society" of Trinity Church, for an excursion. The day was beautiful, and the company numerous ; the band attached to the United States troops stationed here accompanied the boat, and enlivened the scene with their rich music, the company enjoyed themselves -by dancing, talking, proine nailing. Arc. I recognized among the ladies. Miss II?II, AlissT?v.lMissA?re,MissB?d, Miss 11?y, Mrs.11?v, Mrs. >-th, Miss S?w,&C. Arc., all the good sort. 1 thought G?d's attention to Miss A. very marked, also S?g's attention to Miss II.; it is saiu the last two are engaged, a very good match. Mr. I lawks, brother of your cclebrnt'ed Ur. Hawks, and Rector of our Trinity Church, accompanied the excursion with his lady, and seemed highly pleased. We went to Gravelly Ray, the point where the Welland Canal enters Lake Krie, twenty miles from here ; we returned about sun-set, all pleased and delighted. Speaking of Captain Ho we, he is a glorious fellow, and commands a splendid boat, and upon this occasion added many to his long list of friends. His bout is in the Chicago trade. Trade is not ouite us brisk as at the same season in former periods, but still a fair [business is being done, our streets presenting quite an active appearance. ^uiwub Hii'iir) u.i* iiuprovru, aim tortus a large proportion of circulation. ??hio is considered very safe, that is the banks that now exist and pay specie ; inuclt of their money is afloat here, and ts readily seized upon.

Mi/ laft letter?Fortune Telling?Rrvirolt?Copto in Tyler?IVedtitnp, 4"<. Drak 13c>'NR'rr:? According to my promise to write to you again before |inv departure, I take advantage of a few stray moments to indite a hasty epistle. Nothing of much consequence has happened since my last letter, which created no small excitement in this neighborhood, and any place where a " Herald" was to be found was besieged bv a numerous host, all eager for a "sight," and ardently longing that they had the next one also. A seven days wonder up here has been a fortune teller, who has set half the folks in the village crazy with her revelations. Unlike most of her calling, she WM a remarkably handsome mm* woman, and as hrr charge was only fifty rents, n lante portion of our "nice young men" paid her an early visit. Some ol her predictions were very remarkable and strange, and alter a while many of our belles visited h> r for the benefit of her advice; and, as it was remarked, their fuces wore a uniform smile when their conference was ended, it is presumed the information which they derived front Iter must have been of the most pleasing description. Curing the last month an active revival lists been carried on at the Presbyterian and Methodist Churches, with the most beneficial results, over one hundred having joined the various churches, and many more been induced to leave the " ways ol sin. A new piper is about being started here, whicl will give its entire support to the "Captain," and I must say there is no doubt of its succew, tor il eve a man made himself jtopular in this place, by hi manly acts and straight-forward coursr, that man i; John Tyler. I visited yesterday the superb country residenc of I'etcr II Schrnck, Esq.. one of the most lordly nnsiops inthii ection of the county. It is sai< he intends to present it to his son. Mr. E.

Nelden and Morrrll, counsel for prisoner, attended this morning and made application lor the Court to re-consider the order for nonsuit decreed vesterday. After explanation on the sule eel from Mr. Sclden , the Court consented to re-open the ease, and directed that argument should tie presented at the ensuing term, to he held at Utica in July next. tht i hi it 'film.? ??'- "in in ri-iiuion 10 mo aixm waril election, issued on application of the assessors, but involving the alderman, assistant, and other officers?and al?o on com|ilaint of Mr. 'J'aj lor, who claim* to have been elected < Ink ol the Board of Aldermen, was again called up un.l the argument proceeded in. Mr. Lord opened lor the complainants. He entered fully into the particulars ot the election, and read ultidaviu' by which it appears that the whig members hal a plurality of votes in the three districts relative to w hich the re is no dispute. Such was also the case in the first district, where the canvassers were Jisturlied by a mob whilst counting the ballots. Some stones wero thrown into the room from the street :iad the personsolliciallv acting left the room, but others remained, mid make affidavit that the ballots were not disturbed, and no person, except a w atchman, came into the room during the canvassers' absence. He was asked not to go near them, and did not. The ballots were then placed again in the boxes and carried down to the .Vlavor's oilier, counted,a return duly made and hande l*to the chairman, to be presented to the county board of canvassers.? It was, however, subsequently withheld, and the validity of the election denied. Mr. Lord contended that there was no good ground for such, and shewed the danger to lie apprehended from a mob kcing permitted to defeat an election in this way. He was followed by the Maysr, who stated that the canvassers came to his ottice on the evening of the election, and counted the votes in the public room. He neither counselled nor advised with them, being in his private office during the whole of the time. After they had got through, they enquired of him what was best to'be done, and his reply was that they must act as they saw fit. He had nothing to do with the returns until they had been regularly presented. The Mayor then entered into particulars as related to eucli officer, and his r.-numu fn. fining to swear in the candidate* that presented themst-lveti, the substance of which is the same as already published. As respect! Mr Taylor, atliduvits arc presented from the bystanders that he w as duly elected, but none of the Whig Aldermen, forming the " mock board," the " pretended board," as he designated them, hud given alfidavit to that effect, they hardly venturing, under their oaths, to state that they considered themsrlves legally ronitituted to act as a Board of Aldermen. The Bourd of Assistants met, but Mr. Atwcllwas not sworn in. After being organised, they proceeded to business, and in a vote taken, three of the minority voted on the side of the nine majority. The minority finding it could not succeed, a motion was made by one of them to adjourn, anil the whole, without waiting for a decision, gave " leg-hail" out of the room. The Mayor renewed the expression of his belief that Mr. Shalcr had not only a right, but was bound by his oath of ollice to hold over until some other person was sworn in his place. He quoted from the Montgomery charter, which he declared wns not superseded in this respect by the terms of the charter as amended. He cited the decisions ofChancellor Kent, " whose character md talents we all reverence and admire"?Dcwitt Clinton and others. The Mayor alluded to the course of the minority of the Board ol Aldermen in their pom|ious order to the Chamberlain not to pay any checks ; hut the Bank hail not deemed it necessary to obey such, some 300,000 or <.300,000 having since then been paid, and the wheels r f the city government continuing to move on undisturbed. After going into the whole merits of the case, the Mayor solicited tlie Court to look upon his acts disconnected with iluise of any other person, to weigh his conduct as Mayor of the city , and as Mayor only. Tie having performed his lutv. ns lie believed, strictly according to law. lie was followed by Mr. Wood, on behalf of the applicants. He stated that our form of government was yet considered an experiment?we have confidence in it so far, hut if we have many such experiments as have been recently afforded, the best of us will tremble for the sofotv of our constitution. Our hope is in the strong arm of the judiciary. Let that be put forth in its power and protection and nil w ill go happily and smoothly yet. Mr. W. went into the particulars of canvassing the tickets at the Mayor's office, the complete return made, and the giving of the certificate, on the part of the inspectors to Mr. Sinclair, their chairman, to be liandod over to the Board of Canvassers. They were then confident and decided, said Mr. W., hut on the 1 1th April, when but a single day had intervened, "a change came o'er the spirit of their lream,"tliey were not sure that the returns were perfect, and all at once became us timid and as cautious as sucking docs. Mr. Wood cited several authorities to shew that the election should not be disturbed, and that, at the uttermost, it could not extend beyond the district where the difficulty is said to have occurred. lie was succeeded by Mr. Cowdrcy for the defence, and Mr. V'oote on the part of the complainants, who addressed tlie Court to a late hour. This is the last case in Court, and the decisions in full, will probably he given on Monday next. Court of Oyer and Terminer. Mvy 23.?The case of Col.

Political Howdvism.?The Democratic party of the Twelfth Ward, in pursuance of the order of the Board of \ssistant Aldermen, declaring the seat of Mr. Allcrtou vacated on account of his being a non-resident of the ward at the time of his election, assembled yasterday to hold an election to nominate a candidate for said office, the person receiving the highest number of votes to he considered the choice of that party. The prominent candidates were Daniel F. Tiemann and Samuel Osgood, the latter of whom iow holds a situation in the County Clcik's office. Great excitement existed throughout the day, and towards evening information was received at the Tolice offices, calling for the aid of officers to <|urll the difficulty anticipated l>etween the contending parties on counting the ballots in the evening. A number of officers were dispatched to aid in preserving the public peace. The election takes place on Wednesday next; hut it is presumed that the Whigs will take no part in it, unless the Democrats split up, when they w ill nominate a man, aud elect him w ithout doubt. John C. Colt?The decision on the application of this person for a new trial has been postponed until the July term of the Supreme Court. Col. Moxaoi: Eiihahds?It is expected that the trial of this individual will be commenced this week. As a preparatory step in the investigation, a special messenger visited Philadelphia a few days since, for the purpose of examining the trunk found with Kdwards at the time of his arrest in that city, and which has since remained in IHissesion of the Bank of North America. The trunk was found to contain $t'i0,000 in gold and U. 9- Treasury notes, Hi says he is fully prepared for his trial, and/eels so con.i lent of acquittal that he is making preparations to prosecute the persons who caused his arrest to the full extent of the law. Strongly Si-sfkcted.?A person in the transaction of an extensive retail business, was arrested yesterdaycharged with passing counterfeit money, and held to hail to answer. The charge is denied, and certain circumstances connected with the case, would seem to justify the belief that the complaint will he dismissed before the grand jury. The practice of passing illegal notes, exists to an astonishing extent in this city among certain persons who do an extensive retail business, and thousands of dol1 trs are thus passed off without any suspicion being created that the persons were actuated by dishonest motivesIf a note is detected and returned, a good one is immediately given, and the transaction considered as n more mistakein the hurry of business ! We know of several who are in the daily practice of this fraud. Ratheu Mvstesiois.?A man named John Comer, engaged as a hand ou hoard of the tow barge Philadelphia, and who has a family residing in that city, has la-en missing since the night of Saturday the 14th hist, until yesterday morning, when hi* body was found at pier No. 3 North lliver. Considerable excitement was creatixl in the vicinity as to the cause of his death, and a number of witnesses were examined to ascertain the facts. It was tn ni uri t ut'l Vt ill ill I Ill' porter no use 01 Mr. Kinney, No. IS West street, on the evening that he was last seen, anil that he hail a quarrel with some person whose name was unknown, in front of Kinney's house before going on Imard the barge that night, kinney testified that lie went to the barge in company w ith deceased to see him safe on bonnl ; and a man named Williams, w ho Uinrds with Kinney, stated that he heard the two men quarreling in the street, and that at that time Kinney was in bed. Other witnesses stated "that they did not heur any noise," and the whole evidence combined was as contradictory as that usually given in a case of assault and battery, where both parties claim to have acted on the defensive. There appeared to t* a disposition on the part of some of the witnesses to implicate Kinney, in some w ay. in the cause ofthe death of deceased, either by selling him liquor until he was intoxicated, or tumbling him overboard afterwards, but the jury, after a full investigation into all the particulars, fully exonerated him from blame, and returned the usual verdict of " found drowned." A Sox or Athuwb ix LtMao.?Mrs. Sarah Adams, of.Ax Yamlum street, appeared at the l'pi>er Police yesterday, and charged a voting (Ireek, named Mustapha Ali, with the larceny of three watches, with chains, seals.

The morning business in the Senate was of no public interest whatever, with the exception of the navy appropriation hill, which was ie|?urted Irotti the Finance Committee with amendments. This1, and several small mailers over, the apportionment hill was takeu up, and is now tinder discussion. The final action ol the body on this hill, will proba hly take place in season to forward for your " postscript" head. The better opinion seems to he that .lie Senate will not adopt the stringent measures of the House towards the army and navy. For the credit of the country, it is to be hoped that this opinion is well founded. The motives operating upon a majority of tho House are threefold?first a desire to diminish the patronage and |>ower of the Executive?se cond, a sort of demagogue anxiet y to appear before the people as champions of economy?and finally, an honest wish to curtail the expenses of the government,so as to avoid the necessity of the imposition of heavy dunes on imports. The latter motive is honest and honorable, hut it is confined to a very few, and will he made to yield, in most instances, to considerations of a party nature. All these men ure unquestionably running counter to the sentiments of the people, hut they will aiot make the discovery until it is too late. The next Congress will consist almost entirely of new men, coming fresh from the masses, representing the popular will, uncontrolled by party discipline, and measurably free from the influence of party associations. They inuy be expected to come to the support of the existing establishments of the government, and to the elements that give respectability and fternianencc to that government. Between the nconle anil the present Congress there i* a broad and deep gulf. For this Congress there is neither sytnimthy norconHdetiee in the public mind. Tlie popular sentiment is not ret resented, nor the |>opular wish regarded. The discrepancy between the action of Congress and the expectation of the people in regard to the Kxchequer, may be adduced in illustration of this remark- tin this subject, the manifestation of the popular wish has been most decided, and in the northern and middle States, almost universal. The settlement of the currency nuestion has been demanded in tones too positive to be mistaken. Hut there will be no action on this matter. The whole tiling is to be left o|>en. under the apprehension that the present administration might gain something by its settlement, and in the hope that it may he made a hobby for some future presidential aspirant to ride. But the whigs, are a class of men to whom cxi*rience teaches no lesson. Like the Bourbons, tliev learn nothing, and they forget nothing. .Mr. Pendleton, front the Committee on Military Affairs, reported a bill in the house this morning to establish two military posts?one at the month of Columbia river, and the other at some suitable jaiint in the vicinity. The forts to he garrisoned by fifteen hundred men. The bill provides also, that a portion of the navy shall lie stationed at that point, to give such protection to the settlers in Oregon as may he necessary. Fuch a law ought to he enacted, hut the chance for its passage is small, while a spirit prevails in the House which would destroy all the establishments of the government. Some little routine business was transacted, and the House then went into ihe consideration of private hills, upon which the day is to be spent. Among the distinguished strangers now at the seat of government, are Gov. Kdwards of Connecticut, Mr. Stevenson, late Minister to the Court of St. James, and Mr. Hush, Secretary of the Treasury under Mr. Adams. Mr. Hush breakfasted with Mr. Stevenson this morning, at Brown's. This latter gentleman is devoted to Mr. Van Buren, and his presence here is to he referred to some movements in contemplation upon the political chess hoard. The late democratic convention in North Carolina made no decided demonstration, but it is well understood that the the friends of Mr. Calhoun constituted a large majority in the assemblage. Boston.

Private letters received in this city, this morning* by the steamer Telegraph, Capt. llowes, from Portland, bring the gratifying intelligence of the passage of Mr. Kavanagh's Boundary Resolutions in the Maine House of Representatives, with some unimportant amendments, by n vote of 177 to 11. The Commissioners are to be four in number, and two ire to be taken from each political party. In convention, the parties have nominated their men. I'he wings have selected ex-Governor Kent, and .lohn Otis, Esq., of Hallowed, and the democrats lion. Edward Karanagh, of Newcastle, and Hon. Wm. Pitt Preble, of Portland. Mr. Preble, it will be recollected, was formerly Minister to the Netherlands. The above gentlemen were elected by the 1 louse and Senate yesterday. Thus, there is now a fair prospect of the settlement of the long contested question of Boundary. Dr. Collyer lectured at the Temple, lust evening, and his ex|>eriments were so eminently successful as to convince many who have hithertobeen sceptical, of the truth of the wonderful science u|*>n which he treats. He threw a young lady, by the oower of his will into the Mesmeric state, and while she remained in that state, performed a dental operation by extracting one of her teeth. The young lady was unconscious, petfectly so, during the operation, nnd when willed by the Doctor back to herself again was not uwure of what had passed, until she placed ucr anger mine racuum createn oy tne extraction of the tooth. She declared she was not only unconscious of pain while undergoing the operation, hut that, after having come to herself again, she feit no unpleasant sensation. Verily, Mesmerism is a wonderful science. lion. Tom Marshall is not here?but he is still expected to arrive soon. Thousands Hocked to the Odeon, last evening, to hear him speak, but no Marshall was there. Rev. Dr. Pierce and several others entertained the vast multitude by well timed and sensible remarks.

In connection with this, 1 will observe, that the Directors of the United States Hotel, the largest establishment in this city, held a meeting, yesterday, suiil voted to prohibit the side of ardent spirits in that house.?

Sin?Our newspupers have, of course, already informed you of the resumption of specie pay mentsby our ten remaining banks?the four " weak" sisters lu\egone to the devil, uud their mortal remains ha\ in* been quietly consigned to mother Earth several 1:100ns ago.

The great curse of this c ity is the deep-seated jealousy, frequently amounting to feroc ity, which displays itself on every occasion, social, financial or political, between the descendants of the Cluul and their Anglo Saxon innovators. Canal street which divides the upper and lower municipalities, is a jcerfect barrier to all sympathy and good feeling, and separates the sacond or American municipality from the Creoles of the first and third as effectually as the straits of Dover divide England and France. The ridiculous and absurd Hank bill passed at the last session of the Legislature was sup|K>sed to have originated amongst the " down town" financiers, and to have been passed into a law for the special benefit of some half dozen public functionaries, who were largely indebted to the "down town" hanks, (The State, Citizens, and Consolidated,) and were extremely anxious to place their " liabilities" on the " dead weight" list. The resumption is the offspring of S. J. Peters, Esq. till talented and clear headed President of the Citv Hank, and the leading financier of the second municipality. It look the Frenchmen completely by surprise ; and foru time they were utterly dismayed. The democratic Courier, which has for years been preaching up the blessings of a sound currency and tnc evils of suspension, suddenly bolted oil' on a new track, and commenced edifying the town with a series of learned essays on the evils of resumption! The reason of this you will understand, whrn I tell vou that the down town hunks on Monday morning, (or such of them as hud agreed to resume,) got frightened at the prospect, or else fell in love with the jingle of the "better currency" as it was shovelled up from its Ion sleen in t lieir vaults and antnallv hnelr?,l out! Hi nr tiltr lachrvmtr! Hut I nm seriously rejoiced to be able to add that the wiley Frenchmen, aceing how kindly their rascally uptown neighbor l>ore the resumption, plucked up a spirit, and came boldly into the measure yesterday?go that New Orleans bank paper and coin ate [is] now one and the same thing. Exchange on your city can be had in plenty for 11 a 1^; ana the only serious evil at present, is the depreciation of our municipality shin plasters and dimes, which have heretofore constituted our small circulation. This is an unavoidable consequence, however, of a return to n healthy rtute of things, and will shortly rugulate itself. Our literary depot is again flourishing in all its glory and usefulness ; and what with your sparkling and interesting Herald?which is snatched at as if it were gold?and the beautiful magazines from your city, and her " fair sister" on the Delaware, we nope to spend the summer very agreeably. Messrs. Kellogg and Morgan, the new proprietors of the depot, are gentlemen well known and highly respected here ; and, (although 1 presume they don't ask it,) you can trust tliein with perfect safety. Absauatulation is, as usual, very prevalent "about these days"?although the ean't-go-awnys are monstrous numerous. The spring has been charming, and no apprehensions of tits epidemic are entertained. i see a foolish report in some of the northern papers that Fanny Elssler has been here, and that the " Hungarian Brothers" were murdered in Cubn. All flntn. " La Deesse" has not favored as with the flutter of her ambrosial petticoats, and the " Hungarian Brothers" were squalling and growling at the American, a few evenings ago. The town were delighted this morning by the news of the arrival of Kendall from Mexico, lie came in the IT. S.

Yours respectfully, Pith. Washing! on i [Correspondence of the Herald.] Washington, Friday Evening. Senate's It nt to?Portrait of Mr. Clay?Levy'i Case?Rhode Inland. The Senate sat until a late hour this afternoon, and finally agreed upon the number of 71,276, as the ratio of representation. This gives a house of 214 members, round numbers, and with the fractions, an addition of 7 or 8. It is doubtful whether the House willconcurin this amendment. In leed, the matter would seem, from the nature of things, to be hardly susceptible of adjustment, except by means of ccn-ultation and compromise of the large States on the .art nt ?h? nnrl tl.o t.?ll a...? 1- .1? u ute. The subject, in nil its branches, has been exhausted, so far us talking goes, and the remainder of the business, it is to be hojwd, will be done in voting. The weather is becoming oppressively warm, and as the usual period for the termination of a long session approaches, the House is getting impatient of long speeches; and, with the exception of the tariff, upon which tVere must be an outpouring of patriotism and statistical knowledge, the remaining business will probably be de.-patched with sufficient rapidity. Robinson, the caricaturist, has just brought out an admirable portnlit of Mr. Clay. It is a far $imile of the great Whig idol. The features and the expression are perfect?nothing before attempted is to he compared with it. His |>oliticnl friends, and they are numerous, notwithstanding his course has driven the party into a helpless and hopeless minority?and his personal admirers, and they embrace a greater number still, notwithstanding that he is n social despot of the most intolerant kind?all will buy the portrait, and well they may. for they never can another as good. The enthusiasm among the supporters of Mr. Clay is unaccountable. He has always been bold and dashing, both us a statesman and in private life, but his manner is imperious and overbearing, and no man is so exacting ot his friends. lie bfooka 110 equal?listens to no counsel, and will always rule or ruin?or rather rule and ruin. The sentence of the Court Martial in the case ol Commander Levy, is supposed to be under consideration by the President. The chaiacter of the sentence has not transpired?but from the circumstances of the case, it is believed to be the same as tne former. The court have undoubtedly sentenced him to he cashiered, and the action of the Executive is a matter of much solicitude to the ofli cers 01 tne navy, it is ouviuub irom inc tenor 01 tne President's letter, that lit- considered the first sentence as disproportionate to the offence proven to have been committed by Mr. Levy, nnd unjust in its*If, and however much he may regret to reverse or modify the sentence of a court composed of officers so respectable, it can hardly be expected that he will now give up the deliberate convictions (>f his mind, and permit what he believes to be innistice to be done in the premises. Commander Levy is one of the most un|>opular officers in the serv ice, but he was tried on specific charges, and the Court had nothing to do with his general character. However much his previous conduct might have prejudiced him with the Court, or with tne President, the lntter was called u;>on to decide upon the propriety and justice of the sentence solely in view of the charges preferred against him at this time. Possibly the President may review his opinion, and upon further reflection a|g?rove the sentence?nothing is known to llie contrary, but looking at all the circumstances, such a *uin>osition [is scarcely to he entertained.
