B lildlngs, entrance lioin Nassaustrnnt?Joseph Elliott, Printer. OcrnnStcam \avlgatlun-Ilrllhl>Uu((n,dir, It is now lour veurs since the Atlantic wits first traversed by steamers. In this period of time three uiiicnrni iinns nave ncen njiu m, <" ?- ??"?? "u,,uu?? one from Bristol, and one Iroin Liverpool. In this we leave out the West Indian line. I he London line has been suspended?the Bristol line still lianas on and the Liverpool line from Boston does not seem to get along very swimingly. The Acadia steamer sailed from Boston on Wednesday, with 31 passenger*?and yesterday the Havre |iacket Nichcl.i-s sailed from this city with 39. This fact is a sample of their present condition. The struggle between the steamers and the sailing packets has been great At first the steamers created a great deal of enthusiasm, and increased the intellectual intercourse with Europe so much, that probably the average number of cabin passengers has doubled since 1336. But the whole of this business is vet in its commencement. There may be ui? and downs in its progress?sometimes steamers will be popular?sometimes sails?but sooner or later steam mu.-t prevail all over the world. At the present moment steamscems to have lost a little ol its popularity?but this has arisen from accidental causes. The melancholy loss of the President steamer? and the discomfort in making a passage in the Cunard line, have tended materially to impair the business of the steatn lines. From the construction nud proportions of the Cunard steamers, they are generally wet and disagreeable, except in very line weather. The only steamers, indeed that have given comfort to the passengers, combined with the speed of steam, are the Great Western and the British Queen?yet these two fine vessels have suffered from the varying inlluences produced by the had hick of their .cotemporaries. The most successful has undoubtedly been the Western, and the next has been the Queen. The misfortuncs of the Queen have arisen from the misfortunes of the Company that first set herafloat. She has never had a fair trial. She is a very comfortable and a capital ship?and has a highly popular and capable commander in Captain Keane, and there is every appearance that, with a liberal and generous policy on the part of the Belgian government, she may open and establish an entirely new iiventic of travel, trade and eoiiimunication with the ? utre of Europe. In consequence oi some squabbles i:i the Belgian House of Deputies, and the neglect of not announcing her day of sailing through the public prints of Paris, she only took 10 or 50 passenger in her last voyage. With proper care and publicity on the part of her managers, she might have commenced her season in the month of April, with a full complement of passengers from the continent, i*lie has now to work her way slowly but surely into the public favor, and must expect only by degrees to encounter successfully the rivalry, the energy, the system with which the London, Liverpool, and Jlavre sailing packets are managed. Hut there is no doubt of the ultimate success of this Belgian line, if the enterprise be pursued with energy and capacity. (>.i Tuesday next the Queen sails for Southnmn ton and Antwerp. She has already a list of nearly 5d passengers, and the probability is that it will be increased rapidly during the few days that remain. Her arrangements are not sufficiently known. Great inquiry is made, we perceive, resecting her arrangements for forwarding letters, intended for England ; and several of the provincial journals are i.i doubts if she takes any for England at all. We have ascertained that letters can be sent to any part ot England, the same as if by an English steamer. All English letters are sent ashore at Southampton ; and passengers, too, can be put ashore with every degree of ease and despatch. In short, every arrangement has been made to conduct this line on the most energetic and efficient footing. Thus stands the great experiment of ocean steam navigation in the fourth year of its existence. The enterpri/.e has not equalled the expectations of its projectors, in respect to profit?but in every other particular it has been most triumphant. It has nearly doubled the travel between the two continents?and absolutely increased the busine.-? and profit of the sailing packets, by increasing the rapid communication of mind and mind between the two worlds. Strain navigation has only to go ahead for a few years, and it will effect a revolution?and pay well the projectors that enrry it through. The great error has been in multiplying the points of departure and arrival. New York and l,ivcr|?ool for England ? New York and Antwerp for the continent, are the most eligible and convenient points of exit and entrance, at which concentrate all news, all intelligence, and all travel. ApeorvprENT or tub Wall Street 1'rtnts by i or Comm i.n CorxoiL.?The appointment of Charles King, of the New York American, and of Thomas ?nnu?iun ~r iiri?i vvoki, ~r ! regular army," to be the printers and organs of the new Boards, have produced several amusing and int? resting results among the patriots of heth parties. Perhaps no men ure more obnoxious to the great working mass of both parties than Charles King and James Watson Webb. Their unpopularity is the joint production of their personal history and disagreeable character. King is a man of great pride and haughtiness, with very little to support it, either in talents, character, hi-th, orpro|>erty. He is besides .1 man of luxurious habits?little business talent and limited industry. Ills only point of influence is his connection with a linanciul elii/ut in Wall street, who h tvo more amhitidn than ihey want to conduct their own aflair-; (hi the other hand, Col. Watson Webb's "man Frid iy" is tolerable in himself?but he is merely the lor urn lenrnt for the "Courier nnd h'n lirer." The drollery of the apjwintment is to see a concern?which in fact is bankrupt for over S WO.ivrt?being such favorite as to get the mono P >'.v of the Bankrupt notices and one-half of the Common Council. Th" unpopul arity of these appointments is very intense?even among the whig* themselves?and this intensity is daily increasing from the distress tlis: has been created among the many persons removed. m: v-iiKrriR.M-niM.?i no i ounsel of the democratic portion of the Pity Government have tendered a proposition to those on the other side of the house to meet the disputed question relative to the recent election, at an early day next week,before the Court of Errors, which proposition has not been met with a satisfactory respone. The whip app.-ar to entrench themselves behind the hattery of the Supreme Court, presuming that its decision was considered final, when no such agreement was entered into by counsel. Let them tneet the i*iiic boldly and fearlessly, and if their position, I and thru of the Supreme Court, is correct, well and good. If not, let them submit to the law like good eiti/ens. That is the true doctrine. Excitement in Rhode Island.?The Chartists ol little Rhoda, and particularly in Providence, are in a beautiful state of fermentation i;t consequence of a report that Governor Dorr and his sword had held n , large meeting in Woonsoeket. nn.l were nrennrine I to march down upon the plantation Arrival of Boz.?Diaries Tjickena, lady and ? rv.inta, arrived in town ye-tevdav. from Canada. 1/7 Albany.

This seems to be the principal effect of the new law?for all the schools under the old Public School Society remain as ever. One of the most ridiculous things connected with this election, is the exhibition of many sensible men passing resolutions deptecuting the power of the Pope?the progress of the Catholics?and the prevalence of popery. This prominent lact convinces us that there has been a great and radical error in the education of the present race of voters, and that a thorough reform is very much wanted among large classes of society. The cry of popery, like that of necromancy and witchcraft, has had its day, never ...n ....... ...u..?.?i . ?i. ii'ii mi ii turn mi nil ii nun juriciiu iu pci uj? ruui a cry are cither knaves or fools?fit only to be sent to the State prison or to the public schools. The great tendency of the present dny is to materialism, socialism, and all species of irreligion and ubsolute unbelief?and one of the most melancholy spectacles of the Public School controversy was to see Ketchum, the lawyer, elaborating his long-winded harangues on this subject, insinuating the belief that popery ruled New York legislation. This man would have been better employed reading his bible, and learning from that sacred volume, that in his profession, to defend Stone, his client, it was not necessary to slander others unconnected with his case, and for which falsehoods he has yet offered no reparation, as u man of honor would do. At all events, the approaching election will be worth watching. A Wonder?A City without a Bank.?Buffalo, one of the most important cities in western New York?the emporium of the Lake trade?is a city without a hank. All their banks have long since broke, and gone to the devil. Yet we understand that the population of Buffalo is increasing?trade is good?marrying nnd giving in marriage take place?fine fat babies arc coming into the world?the churches are flourishing?the sun still shines?the rains of heaven fall in the fields?the lake is navigable?Niaga- | ra still flows on?the steamboats ^ till plow Erie'6 . waves?and the whole machinery of society is still 1 in a sound condition. Now that the Bufliilo banks ( are banished or broke, no man has an opportunity ( of committing the forgeries that Kathbundid. ( How is all this] Can it be believed! ( Last Shot in thk Rhode Island Wak.?Gov. ' Dorr has fired off his last shot, lie could not make c the cannon go off, but he can squib awfully. The ' following is from the "Providence Express":? ' A Proclamation by the Queen ok Great Britain. We, Victoria the First, by the grace of God, Queen of s Knglnnd, Ireland, Scotland and Wales, Ruler of Canada, ' luvador of China, Oppressor of India, mistress of the sea, f nnd defender of the faith on all sides of the wuter, do here- r by proclaim to the subjects of our realm, that our trusty and loyal rebels of Rhode Island, Province and Planta- a tions, who have adhered to the patent of our royal atices- , tor, Charles the Second, who was no hotter than'he should ' be, and for which may God forgive him ; have, by their u acts, gained our wannest praise, everlasting love and full * pardon : We therefore ordain that our trusty and well- .

This is a pretty fair. The Rhode Island revolution has given birth to a great deal of root-beer wit ' and humor. Stkam Ship President.?We ure led to believe, front the remarks of several nautical gentlemen, that the wreck seen by the Spanish palacca Honda was i not that of the President. It is said that at least , five hundred tons of her machinery was so fastened to her hull as to have been almost inseparable, and that therefore she must have gone down. It is said 1 Iso by those who ought to know, that she was nei- t titer burned nor wrecked in a gale of wind, but that c she struck an iceberg in the night, and sent headlong into eternity, never to be seen again, and we ? do not believe now that her hull has been seen Since the Orpheus left her on the 12th of March.

This awful catastrophe to the literature ol the uge has been attributed to the wan' if an international copyright, and the cheupness ot foreign re-published journals. This is all nonsense. If tui American Magazine dies in this country, be ass-tired the death is natural. It arises from want ot talent?wunt of tact?want of enterprise?want ol business capacity. An American literary or scientific production can always be supported, if it has tne m nuu v iiivipur:. x lie U'jMijiuaiiuu ui luicigFi works never will destroy American works, if the latter deserves support. Here is an instance. The " New York Lancet," a medical nnd scientific work, has only been in existence lmrdly six months, and yet it has nearly a circulation of 3000 copies, equal, probably, to all the medical journals of the Atlantic cities. This journal has been conducted from the jump, with talent, energy, and business tact. Literary magazines conducted on the same principles will be equally successful. But how many of our literati have sense or sagacity to manage their own talents or make them available] They are the merest popinjuys in existence, without any knowledge of real life, or the mode of bringing their eggs safely to market. Look at Dickens. Half the sale, and two-thirds of the popularity of Dickens in Englund, are owing to the tact of his publishers, artists, and wood engravers. Don't annoy us any longer with stufl'about the decay of literature. Sion'or Q. Ghkoa, the Acttrian Engineer.? The distinguished and accomplished Signor Ghega, so well known in Europe as the founder and constructor of the rail roads of Germany nnd Austria, and who was dispatched to this country by the Emperor to examine nnd report upon American improvements in locomotion, has nearly accomplished his extensive tour through the United States, and has expressed himself in the highest terms of admiration of our astonishing advancement in the art. His judgment fully confirms the claims made by our engineers to n Superiority over the British in locomotive machinery. Some of our engines, in which the latest improvements have been introduced, lie has pronounced immeasurably in advance of all others in the world. Signor Ghega has inspected all the principal lineof railroad, and has been industrious in Philadelphia, Baltimore, Washington, New York, Boston, and Albany, in making plans and calculations with which he is about to return richly freighted to Europe. He is now completing his survey of Lake Erie, and will sail in time to meet the Archduke Frederic at Venice before that Prince embarks on hispromised voyage to this renowned republic.? This young Prince, who is described as a highly amiable and accomplished gentleman, will doubtless be received here with all the courtesy and attention that was paid to the Prince de Joinville, md isexpected to arrive here in the Austrian frigate Fcnus in the beginning of Septembar. And we are is gratified to know, us Signor Ghega is warm in actnowledging, that he has every where been received with as much kindness, hospitality and respect as tould have been shown to royalty itself; and this inercourse of eminent foreigners with our country, r,.;i ..... _?a r iiroughout the civilized world, and greatly redound o our commercial and intellectual advantage.

In April last Merritt called ti]ion Leslie to '.tain an amount which he averred to be due, but the later denied it, and said he would call upon the Presi leu >f the Court-martial. Subsequently the plaintill, accompanied by another otli rer, called again, when Leslie acused him of having improperly pomessed himself ot un dd w arrant, erased the marshal'- name who hud been originally deputed to serve it, and substituted his own, .nil that he wnsgoi.ig round collecting money under false '.retences, at the same time mentioning that he had called upon the president as promised, and funnJ that the line hud been remitted. He told Mcrritt tint be was a pretty fellow to be doing so. and if he had a mind to sue him, he emiId mil him in the Tombs before Iliuht. The plaintiff did not altogether reli-h such accusations, and brought the present action for slander, the damages laid at $J,000. The Jury, however, under h11 the circumstances of the case, did riot cousi<lerthat he hail been very deeply injured, and found for defendant. For plaintiff, Mr. 1'. Wilson. For defendant, Mr. Cowles and Mr. H. II. Bownc. Before Judge Ingraham. Jamti .1. Hurtis vs. Jnhn Caiilear.?The defendant is a respectable shipwright, firm of Casilear is Smith. The plaintiff keeps a lottery office and store corner of Peck Slip and Water street. The present action is to recover the amount of a note drawn by Nelson II. Simons, ship chandler, in 1836, and endorsed by delendant. The defence is, that the note was handed to Mr. Bnrtis for the purpose of being collected, Mr. Casilear having cashed it for the maker. The plaiutifl, on the contrary, avers that he gave uncurrent money for the note, anil that it is justly due to him. Mr. Gerard, in his opening, stated that Mr. Casilear was an old and worthy inhabitant of the rity, l<ossessing property, onil fully able to meet all the demands against him. The plaintiff, some time since, sued Simons individually for the amount of the note, although he knew that he had been unfortunate in business, and was unable to pay. By a law passed in 1836, the whole of the parties in a note can be included in one suit without extra cost; and Mr. G. contended that Btirtis would have placed Mr. Casiloar in his action had he not been fullv aware that he was not bound for it. A young man keeping in Mr. Burtin' office testified to having been raiding a newspaper at the time, but he saw Mr. B. pay the money for the note.

Hall, New Orleans, which was accepted but not paid, and the present action is to recover the money advanced. Repayment is refused on the ground that sufficient diligence iia.l not been exorcised in the collection, and that the time for payment hail been improperly extended by Dykers &. Alotyne, without the knowledge of defendants. Letters shosvn come pretty near proof of the latter, but the jury, under the circumstances, found lor plaintill, in the sum claimed, being $503 03. Mr. Gerard, sub rosa, telling the victors that they must he very careful bow they wrote letters again, as a very small sentence might get a man into a very large scrape, and he found extremely difficult to get rid of.

The Ixs asd the Oct*.?The Recorder and Alderman Weo.lhull, President of the Whig Board, assisted by Robert Taylor, who was appointed clerk to the Mayor, were esgaged yesterday, in administering the oath of office to persons appointed in the Whig Joint Meeting, and giving certificates of such appointment. The Mayor has not re. cognised Mr. Taylor as hit clerk, and Mr. Ahern continues to perform the duties of the office. A large number of writs of tupersedeas. or notices to ouit. were served during the day upon the ini, none of whom delivered up their places, however, to the new claimants. The Democratic clerk of the Board of Aldermen is the only person who has given way, and the whigs, therefore, have possession of one half the legislative branch of the government, including the seal of the Common Council, Ste. The democratic clerk of the Board of Assistants refuses to deliver up his keys or papers, and thus stands affairs at present. Fugitive from Justice Caught.?John Williams alias Henry Hawkins, n colored burglar, that sports a moustache, was arrested on Tuesday night, in Philadelphia, hy High Constable Hotrner, on a charge of stealing a quantity of dry goods from a house in this city. A reqisition has been sent for the rague. Killed bt a fallixo Store.?Tho vicinity of the Eighth Avenue and twenty-third street was the scene of great excitement, yesterday afternoon, arising from the death of a young man named George Beach, ono of tin drivcrsof an omnibus ofjthc Knickerbocker line, whe was instantly killed by the falling of a rock from a bias! exploded by workmen, engaged in opening -'3d street. He was seated upon the omnibus at the time, and the whole crown of his head was mashed by the ponderous body.? The parietal, fron'al, occipital and temporal bones were all fractured, and instantaneous death followed the crush. He fell from his seat to the ground, and the horses attached to the omnibus took fright, and ran some distance before they were stopped. The Coroner was present at the scunc, but a few minutes after it took place, and a full and patient investigation was entered into. The jury very properly refused to return a verdict of " accidental death," but find that deceased was killed by a stone proceeding from said blast. It is now the duty of the public authorities to abate this nuisance at once. Rosflisn Usri.K 8*W Ttlii il dnr?#?

[Correspondence of the Herald.] Washinotoh, Wednesday?3 P. M. Proceeding* In Congrcu-Whlg Wluloin. Among the |>etilions presented in the Sennte thi Doming, was one from Amos Kendall, asking u l ive the m >ney decreed against him in a suit in ia vor of Starkton, Stokes A* Co., umounting to #11,W. The committee on cotnmerce reported u bil it favor of Barclay Sc Livingston, of New York, who a=;k of Congress permission to take out a new register for u vessel built in England and purehtcet by them. The bill was read twice and ordered to be engrossed for a thirJJreading. Mr. Bayard's resolution, providing a corps of reporters for the Senate, was then taken up. The resolution directs the Secreturv of the Senate to emnlou a nf r?n?n..rj not exceeding five in number, who shall be paid, the chief reporter sixty dollars per week, and the other fifty. After some discussion, the resolution, on motion of Mr. Smith, of Indiana, was luidontho table, by a vote of 3t) to 10; so the matter may be considered as disused of for the session. It was not exactly u lost vote, but the majority was so large that it can hardly be expected to be taken up again. The Senate then look up the Apportionment Bill. The question pending is the districting amendment. The determination is to go through the bill to-day. The fate of the proposition is very doubtful. The Judiciary Committee of the Senate modified the provisions of the House so as to leave it optional with the States to district or not, but if they do divide into districts, they must be single districts. The democrats in the Senate have gone against the entire principle of districting by Congress, but the whigs having the majority, will probably oe able to carry it. The speech of Mr. Wright in opposition was perfectly conclusive. The arguments on the other side were shown tobe utterly fallacious, and the anxiety for a fair representation sheer pretence. The House have been engaged ii|>on the affairs <>l the District of Columbia uearly all day. In the morning, Mr. Saltonstall mnde an unsuccessful effort to get in a resolution, providing that the tariff bill should be taken up immediately after the Army n|>propriation bill is disposed of. A letter was read front Mr. Arthur Miudleton, tendering to the Congress of the 1'nited States a portrnit of Christopher Columbus, which he had obtained in Genoa. On motion of Mr. Holmes, the portrait was accepted, u?il ill., lh-1 I,L _,,r tl.u I Ir..t.........I I., Mr Mi.I dlcton. The Indian Committee were authorized to send for pa|>ers in relation to some alleged frauds upon the Chickasaw and Cherokee Indians. The hill for extending for another year to the banks of the District, the privilege of paying out shinplasters issued by individuals and oilier irredeemable abominations now in circulation here, is underdiscuswion. A proposition to lay (lie bill on the table was negatived by a vole of 91 to 8(?. It is surprising that the bill should be entertained for a moment. If the national legislature, sitting here in the heart of the country, gives encouragement and authority for the issue of worthless trash, and permits banks to issue irredeemable paper, in the face of the great popular movement against banks of all kinds it will be most disgraceful. The banks in this ci' are sound to the core?and in the country inori hut they ought not to be sull'ered to th 1 trict with the miserable rags that now < itr ul most the whole currency here. Tin no certainty for the vageries of v. the majority in the two houses had a President ot theirowu kidn we should see an assumption ot the State deb; and a national bank of two hundred niil!i"iis chartered in Itss than a month. Why will not t se men profit a little by xperience, or make a rtne of necessity, and do once what the interest o; the country dem what the democrats will otherwise do at tting of the next Congress?repeal the abso ion law, and appropriate the proceeds of along from hand to inoulh. borrown day and Paul to-morrow, the govern in nicapable of being taken except at disgraceful low rates, while in Europe money is seeking investment at from three tofourper cent. Let this step be taken and the stock would be ten per cent above par in iesa than a month. But no?distribution is one of the distinctive features of the great whig systems of policy, and they will cling to it with blind tenacity, until the power is wrested from their hands, and the democrats cooperate with President Tyler in setting the government on its legs again. With respect to the tariff, those sagacious whig politicians are more wrongheaded still, hut on this question th?y may get set aright before the end ol the present session. Discouraging.?The harbor of Bangor iswell filled with shipping and there seems to be lumbar suffi cient for present demand and in some cases lumber has been piled out to season. Freights are rather low. New Flour.?The first new flour manufactured this season was in Monroe County, North Carolina The wheat was cut on the 18th May, threshed on the 21st, and ground on the 22d. Trial tor Murder.?On Monday, before the Supreme Court, fitting at Lowell, Mass., was begun the trial o William H. Brittain for the murder of Sarah Stevennoil, in the Cambridge Alms House, on Sunday, the 10th ol September, before Chief Justice Shaw, and Judges Wildt and llnbbard. The following embrace* the facts Elizabeth Welsh testified that she was in the room when Miss Stevenson was killed?Mrs. Arnold, her child, myself and Miss Stevenson were in the room?after the singing in the school?Sarah had read one verse of a chaptei in Genesis. Brittain came in, and asked if the chamber was mine?I offered him a ehair, which he did not take. He then spoke to Sarah, but what he said I could not understand. He ad\ aneed upon her, threw her bark on th< lied, and struck at her breast with the knife, which he drew out from his vhirt bosom?I caught him by the shoulders, and cried murder, but did not get him away. He turned upon me with the knife, and I w-ent into the entry away from him, and when I turned towards him again, he was pushing the knife into her with both hands. After he stmck at me, he said I was a dea 1 woman if I did not go out. I told him not to kill Sarah, but I do not remember if he made any answer. I did not notice hit appearance, for I wns very much confused. Mrs. Mary Ann Arnold testified that she was sitting in me milliliter wim ner nuio, naran ami .virs. vveitii above name,!. Sarah came in after Mr*. Welsh. My child wanted to go out, and I went to open the door, and there in* Brittain?he entered, and naked Mrs. Welsh if it was her room?Sarah reached out her hand to Mr*. Welah with a hook, an J was turning to go out. Then Britain advanced, Sic. upon her with the knife, and I fainted as 1 taw him draw the knife away. When I recovered, Mrs, Welsh had hold of him, anil I went to the window and cried murdor. Mr. Korrister was coming towards the house. James Korrister?hired man at the almshouse?was in the yard?heard the cry of murder?went upstair*?found Sarah lying on her face on the floor?her head on the threshofd of the door?Brittain was standing up in the middle of the room with a knife in his hand, anclhis sleeves rolled up. The woman was apparently dead, the Moo! flowing freely. He advanced towards me, and I stopped at the door, and then went down stair* again. A* soon a* I got down 1 heard murder again, and when I got up to the room again the hodv was removed to the middle of the room, lying on the hack, and Brittain stooping over it?I seined him round the body, and the knife fell out of his hand, and he seemed to try to get it again. 1 got him into the entry, and he ceased all resistance, and stood up?and then he stuck a hand in each pocket of his pantaloons. 1 supposed he might have soma weapon in his poekH, 1 and tried to get his hands out of hif pocke*. When I did get them out, I found a razor in each pocket, and also a penknife. He was put in the cell lielow by Mr. Emerson, one of the people of the house, and myself. I Margaret Welsh?was in the establishment?saw Brit, tain in the hall with the children after breakfast?there were two knives on the table?he threw aside the knife with an old Made, and took another thnt w as hanging in 1 a loop over the table- there was no string to this knife? ho tried its edge, and cut two pieces of bread with it?1 did not soothis knife again till I saw Brittain drawing it out of Sarah's shoulder. Elizabeth Welsh was hallooing murder before 1 went up?a* 1 got up to the entry Sarah sprang toward me from the bed, and fell on the floor, with hor head toward* me. Mr*. Margaret Stevenson?mother of the deceased?on the morning ot the murder, Sarah and Mr. Valentine were talking about Brittain?Sarah said to Mr. Valentine, " Do you think I would marry my grandfather?" Brittain wa? ihen at the door, and could see and hear what was sniil. After saying what she did, Sarah added?"There he is now, and I don't care if he hear* every word." On Saturday evening Brittain brought homo some peaches, and ofl'rrred some to Sarah?she refused to take them from him, saying that she did not want anything that belonged to him. The conversation on Nundnv morning w as in our room, opposite to the school room. Brittain seemed to !>e as usual. After my daughter was killed, I went up and asked Brittain to help me to inisa her U|>? he said I.a win glad he had killed her, and in helping to move her he slapped her down.

Important from New Orleans?Financial Intrlfwi. We received by last evening's mail, the following important despatch from our private correspondent in New Orleans, disclosing the progress of certain urioits lintincial ncgociations in that capital:? New Orleans, Muy 26, 1*12. Mr. Ja\u1on in New Orhatus? Proiosed vttlcmcnt <y' the debt due the V. S Bank by the N. O. Go* Bank? Fiart'Xip bfltcctn Mr. Caldwell, President of the Gas Bank, nrul the Board of Dirtcloit. De ar Sir :? Sain Jaudon come out last month to settle the debt due by the Gas Bank to the old United Sutes Liiuik, of &'l,3000,(XJO, with interest. The evidences of that d?;bl were transferred to the Morrison's, of ijunuuii, in nit- oays 01 ine united States Hank's Jf-.ith struggles for a few short months of further existence. In a day or two after the said Jaudon's appearance in these " diggings," Mr. J. Erwin, Clay's son-inlaw, was on the aui vivrto know whether the notes given by the Gas Bunk were in the loan negotiator's possession. It seems they were not, anu so Mr. Erwin's searches were fruitless, as his object was to attach them for a debt due by the United States Bank. Shortly after this episode, Mr. Jaudon addressed a note to Mr. Caldwell, the President of the Gas Bank, respecting hisniission, the debts, ifcc._ President Caldwell had an interview with him, and found that the " pound of flesh" was demanded by the Jew. The fact was reported to the board of di- , rectors, who consisted of:? Jamks H. Csi.dwici.1., President. Olcndy Burke, J. N. Hawthorn, W. McLean, Sanderson Robert, James Robb, j. p Whitney, A. D. Chamtierlin, N. C. Baker, Robinson Yeatman, J. C. Magoflin. After due deliberation, the board decided solemnly that they would not pav more than $500,000 for said debt due the United'States Bank, and through it, the Morrisons. Various propositions were then made by the committee of four to Mr. Jaudon. That committee consisted of Caldwell, Burke, McL?*nn, and Magoffin. All the overtures resulted in defeat, and the committee reported, and the board decided again to adhere to their original purpose. Mr Jaudon then drew ofl' and wrote to Philadelphia for instructions. In the m*an time, a secret negotiation was opened by him with Burke, McLean. Magoflin and Robb. All on a uurid,.., \t? Saul, formerly notorious among us as a cashier of the old 1'nite'd States branch in this city, tntde his appearance. The waters began to be disturbed,and at n meeting of the board, present Caldwell, Burke, McLean, Magoffin and Rohb, a motion was made that a proposition be submitted to Mr. Jaudon for settlement of the debt in question. Mr. Caldwell,who is the largest stockholder in the bank, remonstrated, and asked for a full board to consider so remarkable a change in the nolicv of the institution. But the four others thougnt differently, and decided to submit a proposition, which, evidently, had been prepared out-doors. It wap, to give the Morrisons:? The bonds of the bank for one million of dollars, hearing five per cent, interest, and payable in from 5 to 25 years. The cash on hand, #100,000. Assets to the amount of #300,000, considered as cash. Twelve thousand shares of stock belonging to th<- Bank, at #30 ner share. Thirty thousand shares of the capital stock of the Bank at #20 a share. A mortgage on (he gasworks as security for payment of the interest and principal of the bonds. Mr. Jaudon accepted the proposition, of course, and when it catne before the Board. Mr. Caldwell protested in the name of the stockholders and him self against the sale of the institution to the creditors of the Bank, without the consent of the stockholders, Arc. A preliminary meeting of the stockholdings was then called by Mr. Caldwell, and th"y ordered the Hoard to cnll them formally together to consider o( the proposition made to Mr. Jaudon. The Board did so, and fixed the meeting in July. The next step taken was for the stockholders to protest?which they did before a Notary, but the ouaiu rcuibcu 10 finern upon meir nunuirs, averring that they were the sole masters of the Bank. The Board then proceeded to perfect the agreement, and Mr Caldwell refusing to sign the article retired from the chair. Previous to his doing so, he refused to put a question to ap[>oint a committee to sign the instruments, but they appealed from his decision, and he then left his place They then had every thing their own way, and closed the sale of the Bank, flesh, and bones and blood, to the Morrisons. Mr. Yeatman, a director, protested as well as Mr. Caldwell, against the consummation of the act. Mr. Caldwell has enjoined the whole proceedings, and here will be good cause for a lawsuit. It is believed that Burton, Ilobb, McLean, and Magoffin, ns well as some others of the directors united with Mr. Jaudon to get possession of the Bank. and it is said that they get a share cash for all their stock, as well as a heavy bonus for this wanton betrayal of the interests of the stockholders entrusted to their care. .This is common open report, nnd no one contradicts it. Caldwell proposed to yield his rights if they would pay him ami the other stockholders twenty dollars a share cash frr their stock, and submTt the whole lor lie approval of the proprietors. It is believed that the next step will be to appoint Mr. Conrey, a relation of Jauoon, a director, and this Mr. Saul, who contemplates remaining here this summer. This done, a call will he made upon the stockholders having loans upon their stock, to pay up, a thing improbable now, nnd in default thereof legal proceedings will be had against said holders, to compel payment or forfeiture of stock. It is in this way that they contemplate to get the thirty thousand shares of stock projtosed tobe given the Morrisons. 1 assure you, sir, that the Northern stockholders who have given their proxies to such men as Burke and Ins associates have been shamefully cheated out of their property. They have been sold, body and rovl. The men at the head of this scheme are none to good for banditti. They are the remains of the 1837 rliqut that failed so signally, and ruined so many innocent men, that gulled so many of our banks, and the Gas Bank in particular. 1 will not comment further on this remarkable transaction. It is true, every word of it, for I have it from several stockholders. Draw your own in ferenoes. But be assured of one thing. The men who have helped to get this institution from the stockholders by wrong means, by exceeding their rights as directors, and the Morrisons and their (cent per cent) agent will not long reap the reward of their schemeing. The legislature will annul the privilege of making gas next winter, as sure as Dr. Spring's church stands where it is. Baltimore. (Correspondence of the Herald.) Baltimore, June 2, 1843. Mb.
