Important Polltlrul Movement?The "Corporal'* t* I" Motion. The conduct of the present Congrese is beginning to produce a feeling among the people that will rise to its height at the next fall elections. On every hin I we hear curses "loud anil deep," uttered at evert' corner, upon the attempt to degrade the navy, disgrace the country, and bring contempt on the Kv'caiive, merely because he is no party ntan. In consequence of this state of things, a large meeting was held in Philadelphia last week?a meeting of the "Corporal's Guard," too?at which resolutions were passed deprecating the present Congress, and organizing for the next Congressional elections. i -.: :n l. : u_ I IP'S* fit I 11una win ur ui^iiiy ?r Uflicve that on that occasion, the Congress will be elected that will have the choice ofPresident thrown into their hands. This movement will moat likely be felt in other .purlers of the country soon. There is an earthquake at hand?a hurricane brewing. Ocean Steam Navigation?The Bkuhan S-itam he.?The arrival of the British Queen, Captain iveane, at this port last week, from Antwerp, is an additional movement in the progress of ocenn steam navigation between the old and new continents. This enterprize was undertaken by the Belgian govemn nt, and this very fact is enough to give us a lugh character of the king and the counsellors who could conceive such an onward step in commercial navigation. Antwerp is the principal seaport, not only o! Belgium, but of a vast manufacturing country beyond her limits. It is a sort of entrepot of American commerce for the continent?a capital starting point to reach New York in the most direct Way. The British Queen is also a steamer well know 1 to both countries?and the coolness, capa^ city and prudence of Captain Keane have been tried " oft and again." Even in the last voyage, the Queen, makingevery allowance and every calculation, Ixat the Acadia one day and a half across the Atl antic. This partly arises front Ihe directness of the route taken?and is a matter of some moment to passengers, who, as they do ahoaril the Queen, merely pay for what provisions thev order, as at any hotel. it < vii.-M i- in 111c uiniim>, ?'.\|ieiinicMi, feunoiny, and other advantages possessed by this line, in crossing the Atlantic, we have no doubt but the f|uecn will receive her full share of patronage, particularly by those who go direct to the continent. Already we learn that forty berths are taken, although she does not sail till next week. In this city Messrs. Mali, 41 Beaver street, nre the agents?in Antwerp, Samuel Ilaght, Esq., the American Consul. General Cass.?We understand that a large section of'the democratic party is organizing for the purpose of bringing forward General Cuss as a can dtdute for the Presidency. General Cass wouid form a powerful competitor to Van Huron?and more popular in the Held, too?we think. Let us see. The Plot s Pilgrims.?Mr Van Buren and suite were, at the last accounts, at Harrodsburgh, Ky., on their way to Ashland. When lie reaches shady Ashland, and embraces bis dear old friend, Harry Clav, how his heart will swell. How they will drink ularet, rnioke segars, and laugh at the "d d old fool Jackson" and the democracy. Great is Diana of the Epltesians?but greater is humbug U.t.v.n a no Sevekitv or the Late Earthquake. ?The earthquake which has recently desolated a large portion of St. Domingo, was one of the most severe that has occurred in any part of the world for many years; and pet haps more extensive in the sphere of its operations than any since the earthquake which destroyed Lisbon, in lT.W It appears that on the .-ante day, and very nearly the same hour, the effect* of this recent earthquake were felt at various places ranging frem Port an Prince to the base of the Kocky Mountains. The greatest explosion from the force of internal pent up fires was felt at C.ipe Haytien, St. Domingo, on the 7tli instant; here they had three successive and violent shocks; and previous to tlif first of them a shock of the earthquake was felt at Porto Kico, on the morning of the 7th ot May, which as lar as we have yet learned, was the most easterly point that the effects of it were felt. The internal fires, it seems, then took a northwesterly direction, struggling to eseaiie front their prison house, and ultimately tore the ground asunder and broke out at Cape Hnytien. It stretched clear across the breadth of St. Domingo and was felt at Port in Prince on the same day and at nearly the same hour. It also travelled on and was felt at Mayaguez at the same time; then to St. Martinsville and one or two other places in Louisiana; thence to Van Purcn. Arkansas, and clear up to the foot of the Rocky Mountains; where it was also felt on the same day. It thus travelled at least 1500 miles, and perhaps was felt even further. It is a sublime and awful thought ; here we have proofs of the existence of a body of internal fires 1500 miles long and probably as many deep. The Rhode Island Root Berk Riots.?It appears that there is yet to he another "scene" hefore this business is settled. To sum tip all in a few words, Governor King has demanded Governor l>orr front the Governors of New York, Massachusetts and Connecticut, should he he found within their borders. Trie two former will give him up -the latter will not. Governor Dorr's friends are ?till lurJ at work, and secretly organizing in many places in all three States. In the mean time, the other party in Rhode Island are tired of being kept continually on the look out. They wish for peace. And the best way to prevent all farther trouble, is for the eliarter party to call a meeting of the Legislature, and grant the others n liberal constitution. For, whatever others may say and blow ahout it in tic interim, "to this complexion it must come at last." Tfx \s. Matters are in a very curious state in this little republic. Gen. Houston and < len. Hamilton seem to be opposed to carrying the war into Mexico. A strong party are m favor of it. (>f the 5000 men who tlew to arms on the news of the recent invasion, not fifty remain in the field. Gen. Houston wishes to remove the sent of government ; many others do not. There will be trouble yet in the little republic. The Anniversaries in Boston.?These things are all very well in their way. bui they are "flat, stale, and unprofitable," after what we have n tn-te of here. Wc see that Mar Vohannali, Mr. Perkins Riid Mr. Kirk, have been holding forth in Boston but it is onlv n re-hash of what we fully reported ir the " Herald" at the anniversaries here.

The Boston people whom he attacked have sent to Miattasippi to pick ip afiidavits against Ins moral, political aud chriaian character. ' ;reat developments on these points 1 ire ex|H-cted. Old Poins will have to get Satan to !^i-i him, or at least little Counsellor Dwigbt, who will be a tolerable substitute of " hell's grim lawyer," in any difliculty. The following is the lirst counter dose:? A Counter lilust to Poludi-xter's it e port. In March, 1841, we obtained from Mr. Curtis the privilege of supplying a i>ortion of the printing for the Custom House, HU'I ail our Bills against the Collector, amounting ii the ? hole to one thousand and sixty-six dollars, were laid beferu Mr. Poindexter for his scrutiny on the lbtli of November. Soon ufler Mr. Curtis came into office, and before the regulation was established, by which the Collector, alone, gives orders for stationer}- and printing, we received an irder for certain stationery from one of the storekeepers, which we supplied, amounting in the whole to $?!> 50? which forms a part of the sum of one thousand and sixtyix dollars, tiefore mentioned. This is all the stationery we have ever supplied to any department of the Custom House, and this w us furnished without the order or knowledge of the Collector, at the time it urns ,l?livi*nd. Now let ur tee with what cunder and truth Mr. i'oindexter hat treated this subject. At page 145 of the Report, Mr. Poindcxter state* " the principal supply of printing and staliontry for the Custom House, was given to us Ity Mr. Curtis shortly after became into ottice," that we are "journeyman printers, and near relatives of hit," Si.0. On the next page it it stated of ut, " They had no meant to supply itationery to the Custom House, and yet they ma le tho*w supplies at their own extrnvagant rates, he. " A few tJaiHultt will serve to show the general cha racter of these llills." Examples are then professed to be given to show our general charge " for foolscap paper, per ream," " for letter paper per ream," " for steel pent per gross," and " for one Ledger." Now we aver that we never have furnished any paper to the Custom House, except one ream of ruled foolscap, and one ream of letter paper ruled, which are the veryitems mentioned by way of " example," to show the general chaiacter of the bills. Wc have never furnished any Ledger except that one mentioned by way of " example" nor have we ever furnished any steel pens, except tltree gross, and if, in addition to the items mentioned by way of " example," to show the "general character of these bills" for stationery, Mr. i'oindcxter had mentioned other small items, amounting to twenty dollar*, his " example.*" would have included every item of stationery wc have ever furnished to theCustom House; and the whole amount would have footed up at $79 50 We admit that upon all these supplies of stationery we mnilc ti nrnfit nf liHtwonn oitrhi nnrl fa'alvn ilitllneo deny thut it has exceeded that sum. And yet throughout the report of Mr. roindexter we are over and over again mentioned hy name, as if we had been the general stationer* to the Custom House, and guilty of the grossest extortion in our charges for stationery. Kven a corrupt motive in Mr. Curtis, iu dealing with us far stationery, is insinuated. In respect to the prices charged by us for printed blanks, and printing bound in liooks, it appears, according to the testimony ol Mr. David Felt?if that testimony i* correctly rcjiorted?that we have charged mure than Mr. Felt says he would have been willing to do the same work for. This may be true. But the better test would have been to have inquired what Mr. Felt is in the habit of charging for like work. Wi will do Mr. Felt the justice to *ay that we do not believe that he ever gave the testimony attributed to him in this report. We have seen a statement?and can produce it?under the hand of a respectable citizen of New York, certifying that Mr. David Felt charged his customers at the ruteof, " for cap blanks, four on a sheet, from $30 to $17 per ream." For this description of blanks we have charged $13. Again, the certificate states that Mr. Felt charged ' for cap blanks, two on a sheet, $1*1,-10 to $lt> a ream, ruled." Our price for this article was $13 to $14. "Other cap blanks Mr. Felt charged from $18 to $30" for, while our price was $10 per ream. But wh\ could not Governor Poindexter have allowed us to be present when printers were cheapening our work? At page 147 an unfounded and false insinuation is made, that the paper on which the blanks furnished by us were printed was provided by the Custom House. Contrary to the truth, and without anything tojustify it, this miserable insinuation is gratuitously made. Who knows whether specimens of our work were ever exhibited to Mr. Felt 7 Had we been present we should hare suggested to Mr. Toindexter the fact, that he had himself allowed, approved, and certified to be correct and right, some printing and stationery hills for the commisdimi in tVw? an?crr<?i*n?n ntiifi* nntinl tn tho nmmsnt r\f nne stationery bills, the prices of which would make a very listtgreeable tatilc for him to contemplate, if contrasted with his " market vulue," us he reports the evidence of David Kelt. Since Mr. Poindexter would give us no opportunity for rxplanntion, nor even let us know that any was required, we must cross-examine a little now. and we do it by furnishing a table made up with perfect accuracy and truth, from the bills of stationery and printing for tho commission, certified to be correct, and approved hv thesignature of George Poindexter, by whoso approval the same were naid and rharged to the United States, in this city when the commission broke up. We have hail access to the accounts of his stationer, and present the following table :? CoMRARATIVK T A BLR OF THK AlLEOFI) MaRXET PRICES or Stationery rv.R Gov.

Let not Mr. Poindexter say that there is any error in this i it is accurate to a single cent, and the calculations are all made precisely upon the principle adopted by him in his tabular statement ut page 11 of his report, and the several bills of stationary for the commissioners approved and signed by him, are equal in the aggregate to the whole amount of all the lulls of stationery furnished by us to the Custom House. We shall verify the foregoing on oath whenever we are sent for to Washington, und the House of Representatives concludes to grant the request of Mr. Poindexter, to apjrmnt a court of inquiry to investigate his veracity. He has objected to our price for printing blank bonds. If the committee of the House of Representatives goes very deeply and minutely into the matter of bonds, we hereby nominate, w ith great res|iect for his high clinracter, Gen. Kelix Houston as an important witness, and if he cannot testify as to the cheapest mode of getting bonds, then we w ithdruw the nomination. Mr. Poindexter lias been pleased in his State paper, at page 14t>, to call us " hucksters," and rcprouch us because we are "journeymen printers." We admit that we are "journeymen printers," having an ollice for such job Svi, mil I.I II unj ...

The political news from this place is small. Santa Anna is steadily, quietly, and secretly carrying on his plans with hut few friends, and is hated and despised by a majority of the citizens. The three most influential enemies he has, are probably (lener.ils Paredes, Cortezan, nnd Pedraza, and rumors are continually afloat that, with the tmojwat their disposal, they will pronounce against the self-styled provisional President. The probability is. however, that no movement will be made > ot a revolutionary nature until the assemblage of the i Constituent Congress in June. A majority of this a-seuibly are known to be Liberals, and op(>osed to the views of Santa Anna. 4 (>n the21st April, Mr. Kllis had his audience of leave ol S inta Anna, and on the same day Gen.

The repose of this place, the first settled in Kentucky, was this day disturbed by the arrival of the lion. Martin Van Buren, the respected ex-President ot these I'nited States. The civilities extended by the citizens of this place were well received, and nothin? occurred to mar the festivity of this glorious occasion. The day was uncommonly pleasant, being favored by the brilliancy of the sun, the heat of whoso rays was agreeably tempered by the breeze, which came in abundance from the North West.? Tb? ctii<7?> hi-in?? detained bevond tbe n-ainl time rendered the vast concourse of people, of nil arc- | nnd colore, extremely eager toget a glini|>sc at the dip- , tingmshed stranger. But after all imtienec had nearly I been exhausted, his approach was proclaimed l?y lli<- ' thunderlike r -ports from the heavy pieces of artillery stationed in the enclosure at the springs, which wer? discharged at intervals of one minute each. At th> moment the first report was heard, thousands of our citizens (sonic mounted and some not, and many in barouches nnd vehicles of different descriptions) proceeded to the suburbs of the town to greet and escort him. The military formed n conspicuoul>'\rt of the escort. (H these, however, (without doing injustice to the others,) I will mention in par :icuUr tit** Central Guardu, whose appearance was nartial in the extreme. Their well tilled ranks, the leatnesa of their uniform, and the discipline inauiested in their beautiful evolutions, also tlie delightful uiuaic from their fine and numerous band, convinces that no attention is spared by their officers to liable tlietii to cope with any in the country.

Dear Bexnett:? In my letter of the 16tli I wrote you that the President of the Fanners' and Mechanics' Bank would esign his office during the present month, and that lorace Goodwin, second, would succeed him. It t now said that the hitter will not accept the place, nd that E. B. Green, Esq. the ahle and independent ditor ol the Keview, will he appointed. This gencman has had great experience in financial inatprs, and would make a capital President, and heides, it is bringing the genelemen of the press forward, as they should he. Morris's Olio goes ahead in great style, and takes wonderfully, and next year we will have a wellconucted Theatre in the land of steady habits, where 11 the pretty belles and beaux will congregate.? )eacon Bumsted threatens hurd, but he need only it still and mend his breeches?nobody minds him. ust as if people might not dance, or kiss their chilren on Sunday, because the Deacon don't think it ight. There is no feeling in Connecticut for Henry 'lay?his name is not mentioned even in a single aper. The whigs say they won't bs committed for ny body as yet?that a year or two ahead is time nough to start with any body. The Hare up of whig clubs in your city seems to be understood |>erectly, and Connecticut can't be caught in that trap, .'he loco foco party arc enjoying their victory in liis State, by acting on the principle recommended y Governor Marey?and success attend them. The fancy ball of next Friday will surpass anyhing of the kind ever got up in America. There exists at this time an opportunity to com tunicate trom this droll city an occurrence which luny t&iiruu >viji jiii-a-jiai ui, turn |>CHm|>9 oumr ui lie opposition party may chuckle It is that of the urning of the steamer Massachusetts, which by nine means unknown at present, took fire about 1 o'clock last night, anil steamboat fashion, it urnt with the greatest fury, notwithstanding the curing of torrents of water by the energetic liremen f this pious old sity, who were on the spot at \s twinkling of an rye, and displayed such courage, kill and labor as would do justice to even the firulen of your city, who have practice almost nightY of this kind. Business matters we consider here to be on the >ok up ; still there is no great excitement existing xcept that caused by Morris's Concert and Olio 'ompany, which are calling together the fashion tat refuses to visit' all other entertainments except church or grave yard. Morris has a very peculiar tct in managing a company, and 1 think equally as tucli or more in pleasing an audience. Lust night .'us set apart by him for the exclusive admission ol ulies, and such gentlemen only as might accompany letn. The old City Hull was tilled at an early our with as line an audience as your two peepers ver beheld: and this I am aware was not representd by less than some five hundred ladies and nearly s many gentlemen. 1 take pleasure in seeing this ibcrality displayed towards Morris, because you vill recollect ot the many persecutions towards him uring the past fall, by over nice strait laced fews, ho our city is every day purging themselves from 'lie concert is given by some dozen jiersoiis, and le only travelling company that we are visited by f any size und repute. As to the verdict of the jury (Superior Court,) hich I saw published ill the " Herald', last winter, lat a tine was imposed on Morris, on two indictlents to wit, for snowing Miss Clementine's knee, nd exhibiting a little negro from a sack?such . as the verdict of the jury, hut our most able nd much esteemed Judge Williams, after keeplg the case under consideration some five weeks, ismissed it, and to the joy of seven-eighthj of our >wn who are now giving Morris a strong token of his 'I'lpnini' hnrlt T liltp h;iv*? f<irirnff?*n In mention tat Miss C is about uniting in nuptials that may ot prove so flattering hereafter. A great ball, (fancy,) is to take place to-night at Ir. Dunham's Hall; a sacred concert by the Union lusio Society, for the benefit of the Washington "emperance Society?(good, wonder if there could e any thing better1.) and Morris's grand olio?this ? all we expect for n rainy night?110 Park theatre, o Chatham with Forrest the great, nor any such ling have we here, but sure we nave as many hurchca as will make up for all; and when our blue ghts steal from home like Deacon Butnsted, they an see all these capers and their families must not now ofit.

As this is " holy week" in Boston, besides many dher exciting events, I shall endeavor to give you n inkling of what has transpired. The town is completely thronged with strangers, ind every other man you meet has a white cravat, (imposing probably two-thirds of the ministers of few Knglund. Some half dozen anniversaries have teen held every day, at which re;w>rts have been end and addresses made in regard to the progress of eligion, sin, temperance, king alcohol, and the lovil, all of which have been well attended by the ild women and pretty young ones of our city, besides he thousands who only come to town once a year. Mr. Kirk has been the champion of the "Ortholox," and has, 1 believe, spoken every day. The launch of the frigate Cumberland took place in i iiesaay, much to the satisfaction ot the tlion?ands who witnessed it, and I hope Uncle Sam will lot let her go to decay where she now is, under the alse idea of economy, when it is too late. Wednesday was the annual parade day, and our different military companies made a fine show, and I venture to say there is no city in the Union which ran boast of finer uniform companies than our own, although there is very little inducement to join them under the present law of Massachusetts. Murli pride is exhibited in the euuipage of some of them, particularly the "Independent Cadets," which is romfioaed of "young bloods," who mnke n gorgeous display in a ball room or parade, but do not handle a musket with as much case as the "Washington Phalanx" and some others who possess the "sinews of war" in n different way. Thursday was a great day with the "Wa-liingtonians," who assembled from all parts of the Stale on the Common, in the morning, and paraded the ?trcets to the number of three or tour thousand, with banners and music, and in the evening met at the "Odeon" to hear addresses from the Hon. Tom. Marshall and others, expected. Mr. M. I believe, did not come, as was expected, but the meeting was addressed by a number of shakers, some of which was very good, particularly Mr. Lewis, of Cincinnati, whose "hps were never closed on anything that intoxicates." The chairman announced Mr Alexander Welsh,"of New York, and who should make his appearance, hut the renowned "Sandy," ,vi,n ... i.;? ii... pnlar "terrapin" style, much of which was von amusing, particularly his engagement at the Bowen for one night only, which ho told with as much hit moras he ever aid when under the excitement o "twoutv-ftvo" n day. Alter the performance hi was called out, and inv^ed them all down t( No. ? Broadway to take stewed, fried or roast eif, which generous invitation he extended to all o! us then present, and retired amidst thunders of ap plattse. Rip Vaji Winki.k. Washington. [Conesi>uuil?Mice of til- Herald.} Wamunu r>rN, 28th May, 1842. The figures that make tip the wondrous tables in Poindexter's Report, concerning Stationery for the Custom House, are all knocked into pi. Mr. Felt, the sole witness on whose" alleged testimony those tables were made up, has written a letter to the Speaker, to be laid before the House when the subject comes up, in which he states that he has examined Doc. 6ti9, Poindexter's Report, and that he never gave the evidence there stated. Mr. rcu mjw that bit incuaooy was wriitn down by some of the clerks ol Mr. Poindexter, but was not submitted to him for examination. It is stated that Dwight was the clerk who professed to write down the testimony of Mr. Feltthat Mr. Felt, as if he suspected foul play, called a second time upon the Commissioner and requested an opportunity to read over and correct his deposition?that Mr. Poindexter told him he should have an opportunity to read over, correct, and sign his deposition, but that the pretended de[>osition wus carried off to Washington, nnd never tigntd by Mr. Felt. In the report of Col. Steuart it is distinctly stated, that some rough minutes of the examination of Mr. Felt are among the files, but that the deposition was never completed by the signature of Mr. Felt. Who will get hauled over the coals for this I? Dwight or Poins I I will get a copy of Felt's letter and send it to you. Hut the bitter spite of Poindexter and Dwight against Mr. Curtis has been gratified. By exparte testimony, taken iu secret, and refusing hia request to produce testimony in regard to the accounts fot stationery and printing, a flagrant charge of extravagance and waste has been made against him, and widely circulated ; and now it turns out that pretended evidence on which it was founded was never given by the witness.

Great Mob?Destruction of Brokers' Others?The Devil let loose (iiiums* the Shinjda stern? The " Working" Out of the Great Financial Ef/terirnent. The nefarious spirit of mobocracy lias at length broken ou in New Orleans. While 1 write the streets are filled with the military, parading in full uniform, and an armed jmsse, or voluntary patrol. Officers on horseback are dashing furiously past, in all directions, and the city presents something such an asjiect as at the time Old Hickory put it under martial law. You will see all sorts of statements, doubtless, in the papers, from which it will be morally impossible to get at any thing like the truth. I ' will endeavor, therefore, to'givs you the facte in the case, with all proper perspicuity. During the suspension and breaking up of the New Orleans banks, and while the strong ones wouldn't issue their notes, and the weak ones couldn't, the small ?irculntion of this city has been almost entirely composed of shinolaHters, issued by the different municipalities, and of dimes and half dimes, which passed at a premium of twenty-live per cent, or eight dimes to the dollar. Upon the resumption of specie payments, (which did not go fully into effect until Wednesday morning), the dimes and half dimes assumed their proper value, and the municipality shipmasters, as a matter of course, depreciated. Those ol the first and second municipalities, from 15 to 25 |>er cent., (which, considering that thev had never been worth but eight dimes, was in fact no depreciation at all), while the bills of the third municipality ranged from 50 cents to nothing on the dollar, "according as you could light on chape." The first and second municipalities, ali though considerably in debt, will undoubtedly redeem every dollar of their issues; but, as to the 1 third, it is a very doubtful case. The brokers, however, thinking it an excellent chance for an "operation," classed the bills of all the municipalities together, stuck up notices of "no shinpluBrfra purchased here;" and by these and divers other un godly tricks, which would have done honor to Wall street, succeeded in throwing discredit upon all municipality notes, so that they could buy up those of the first and second at 15 and 5(1 cents?thus making an immense profit at very little risk, as nobody seriously believes that the notes of these municipalities will not eventually he redeemed. This being the state'of things, the fruiterers, haberdashers and small dealers in general, itinerant and stationary,?a motley and indescribable crew of French, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese, Germans and .lewsol all nations, to the number of three-or four thousand, started this morning for the Mayor's office where they called out pis Honor and demanded the redemption of "is billets dn municipalitei." His Honor, who did not happen to have the change "past him," declined this opportunity of showing nis public spirit, but told the mob that the story of the depreciation of their notes was a falsehood, and that they would all be redeemed in a few days. The crowd, upon this, left the Mayor's office ; and being instigated by the devil, who sometimes delighteth to witness the destruction of his own works, proceeded in a body up Chartres street to Canal, yelling like ten thousand wild Indians. On the comer of Canal and Camp, (the latter being a continuation of Chartresj the mob commenced t :e work of destruction by completely gutting the exchange office ofMessrs. Valentino and Williams, and currying off all the money it contained, gold. silver, nnd paper, (even shinplasters,) while the cry flew from rank to rank of the rioters, " axix armes! ttttx armct!" The citizens immediately ran to the Town llall, where a magazine of arms and ammunition is constantly kept, and returning in a body, charged upon the rioters, who fled with the utmost precipitation. By l his time, the oflicesof Valentine and Williams, itaphael, Nance and Barker, lour broker's offices " all in a row," were completely and literally gutted Nobody was seriously wounded in this most extraordinary cnuute, and the civil authorities, aided by the citizens, succeeded in cupturing some ten or twelve of the ringleaders, who are to have their examination to-morrow morning, and who undoubtedly will be committed for trial. 1 shall send you the result by Sunday's mall. The resumption goes on swimmingly. Cotton has improved 4 cent j>er pound. Pi ck. rf vri'iinvv Morning, May 21. The Council of the Second Municipality have met nnd pa-s d a resolution funding the shinplasters und issuing certificates bearing 6 percent, interest. .The first Municipality have authorised the negotiation of a loan of #200,000.

A special agent from the Court about to try the Colonel yesterday examined that other trunk, which has been in the possession ot the Bank of North America since his arrest, when, among other things, it was found to contain $60,000 in gold and Treasury notes ! What honest speculation of the Colonel's will explain the source of this large amount of money I An exciting trial of conspiracy and riot is in progress at Chester, a few miles below this city, whicn has got half the county of Deluware by the ears. I mentioned tha case a few days since. It is ona of those quarrels between factory employers and the operatives grow ing out of a difference as to prices?not bowever, I believe, so much in regard to the amount paid them as the kind in which it is paid. The workmen strenuously resist the old thieving practice of being paid in store goods, at two or three times the value. From tliis comes the accusation of conspiracy?one of the boldest pleas for punishing the poor laborer that was ever countenanced by legal enactment. It is a net that never catches big fish. It was tried in reference to the United States Bank conspirators, but they slipped through as ea*y as a minnow would pass between the meshes of a shad net. Another weel^ will be requisite to dispose of the case. some very extended preparations are going Ion* aril lor a complimentary concert to Mrs. Watson. Several of the moat able and distinguished vocnl and instrumental performers have already volunteered ; among tliem Signor de Bagnis, one of the most deservedly popularsingera that ever appeal* on onr boards, the Rainer family, Schubert, lluntield, and Mrs. W. herself, who is one of the sw eetest ballad singers in the country. Thursday night ia announced for the concert, at the Musical Fund. A rare treat and a crowded house may tie anticipated. The officers and crew of the sloop of war Marion attended the Walnut street Theatre last night, by invitation, and drew a crowded house.
