There is little interest felt about it. If it were a question between two sets of vagabonds who wanted the spoils and to live on the public, there would he a general stir.

On the 21 >t, only two days after, the (treat Western took 1)5 passengers. What causes this difference! Nothing clearer. Travellers prefer to come at once to th- great capital of a nation. If the Boston steamers intend to succeed, they will have to come direct front Liverpool to New York. H. B. M. S. Warsttte came up yesterday 1110m;ne and anchored off th- Battery. At eight o'clock she fired a salute which was returned from Goverr. >r's L-land and f rom the receiving ship North Carolina.

We trust that the noble example thus set, will not I be lost, and that the British Queen already may ] carry out a handsome amount from New York.

Kv.i.imi Hi,isio.\i on Am*bican Affairs.? There tsa strange " re-artion" in the tone of some of rhr American papera just received. The gloom which they formerly expressed has vanished, and confidence li.ta suddenly taken the plane of despair The loud war note i:<tainst England too, is sank inio the thinnest treble, and "peace" with* thi. ountry is the watchword with nianycf our transAtlantic conterni>oraries. As a sjtecimen of dune w style ot writing which the American journaLire now pleased to tidopt, we take the following irotn the rirst leader of the ?Vnr Vmk Herald of the -Mth of April, which may be looked upon as a denocratic organ of influence. Mr. James Gordon llennett, the editor of that journal, holds forth in this style :? ' Thii country?thin glorious laud?lias at length reached the txKtom. Wc huvu touched the solid rock?in commerce, currency, politic*, religion, virtue, demurali /.atiou, fully, charlatanism, and good sense. From tin* day forw ard, the march of the republic will be onward and upward, in every element of civilization and msund economy. " Our negotiation* with England are mukilie gn at pro, gress, and every symptom indicate* a long, lasting, and honorable peace. Our dilticultiea with Mexico do not look to fair, but the Mexicans can be thrashed into decency. In domestic politic* we arc in a very interesting tate. For the first time since the revolution, we have a President making the experiment of governing the conntrv without a party, but simply trusting to the principles of common sense and recti'ude of a free people. This has produced some confusion in the action of Congress, and cause I some discredit to the public finances?but things will yet come right. The next presidency is three years off-? and little cun be said of the result of the present stute of parties. " In commerce and currency there can he no mistake. In the greater portion of the couutry, the rotten banks have been closed, and things are a ljusting themselves to a specie basis. The bankrupt law his leas oHect than hail been anticipated. The ser.cju is promising, and great hopes are formed of the coming crops. The whole active commerce of the nation is re-organizing itself on a sound basis- Congress will uiique.tionably pass u new revenue l iw-, increasing the duties?hut the embarrassed States annot recover in many years. The great State of New Vork is the lirst to lead the way in resuscitation of public credit, and thu principles of honesty .* This change is far too suddfh Io last. The Americans must not for a ........?i tb..? .I. ,?e*ople in this country can be deluded by this " go i-hi'ud" sort of language. Tin* first step towards 'he progress of the Fnited States " in civilization anil -ound economy" is a restoration of their mercantile credit. Until ill it be regained which is lost, all talk bout America having tohclfd the solid rock in commerca and currency*' is perfectly idle and useess That restoration, we mu-t tell our friends over 'he water, is not lobe accomplished without sacrifices on their part, and not until the various States of the union have proved bv a clear, honest, and determined action in their legislatures, that tlue provision has been made for payment of the interest on their public deh?s. First of all, the Federal Treasury must be relieved from its existing insolvency Until the credit of the government be good, that of the nation must he below par, and to that end every body knows that a loan must he negotiated in the European market. President Tyler may get a million or twoof dollars at home, but he must come to England for his wants, and he looks to this market for 14 or 15 millions of dollars. The Americans know very well how to " work the Oracle and as they have wares to sell John Bull, at present, iliev tike special good Care to bring them forward with ill the pull" and splendor which display themselves in 'he above quotation from the pen of Mr Gordon Bennett It will not succeed. Mr. l're.silent Tvler may faithfully rely. The American federal loan will not be locked at by London capitalists, until the States of the Union evince sound principles of laith towards their public creditors under subsisting engagements No house in the city lartt take upon itself the responsibility of introducing American scrip to ihe notice of tlmir lellow citizens, under existing circumstances. We care not how great or powerful any firm may be ; the attempt would fail, and could only terminate in the defeat of mose who stioutu dp tool-hardy enough to come forward with the proposals. Confrere may repeal the Land Distribution Act if they choose, and increase ( the revenue of Customs, although there is not much | appearance that either a new tariff or a repeal of the Land Bill will pass this session. But whether , they do so, or adjourn without passing any legislative measure regarding either point, the iieuple tif ^ 'his cqnntry will not be induced to subscribe to the ( federal loan until the citizens of the United States turn over a new leaf, and tax themselves sufficiently to equalize their revenue and expenditure, j The acceptance of the federal 'oan is the key- j note to he struck ns a lest, and until that scrip pass ( current in Europe, the utmost xertions tit the citi- , tens of the I'nited States io regain their credit , will he ineffectual. They may run up their favor- , ite stock for a time. Some of them indeed, such , us those of New York, Ohio, nnd Pennsylvania, ( ire so low that we cannot doubt that they have fairly "bottomed;" but in res|>ect of the general , class of American securitcs, they must all remain at a low price until the credit of the Federal Government is resuscitated. Ancillary to that object, and ] indeed, essential to its success, is the expulsion of , all the paper of the insolvent banks, and the esta- , hlishment throughout the Union of a sound system of national currency Upon a uniform specie hasis. It is all stuff to write about things " adjusting themselves to a specie basis." Thp voluntary system will never bring about the benefits of a sound currency in America. Decisive Comprehensive legislation must he adopted to enforce the change, and Congress must exert its sovereign power " to coin money nnd regulate rhe value thereof," as specially vested in that body bv the constitution, in order to cnnmpl the Infill Icrial.itiii-pa ?.? , ? - i - - v.. i-iiirt vicious system of blinking.? London Morning , Chr oniric. , America* L:>a*s.?The N'ew York Herald, of i the !Shh ult.,* received by the Britannia steamer i yesterday, a caper which lias obtained considerable i celebrity in tlie United States, for the attention it | pays to monetary affairs, contains the following. We feel it our imperative duty to warn English capitalists against our Yankee money-hunting triends, who are about to make a regular descent upon John Bull. Private letters state that a brotherin law of Mr. Forward, the present Secretary of the Treasury, will shortly sail for England, with a view to negociate the new United States loan. A host of vultures are coming over from individual States on the same sort ot errand, so that a pretty "harp look-out need be kept on these gentlemen, ind we shall take care to give, notice of their arrival. After the experience of the last few years, persons will deserve hut little pity if they allow themselves to be caught in any such traps. The Xmertcan papers state thai some portion of tlie government loan has been taken tip in America, hut we htp assured from undoubted authority that such statements and rumor* are wholly incorrect, tnd merely made that the bait may be more readily swallowed in England. Whilst on thv subject of lonns, we may advert to a rumor that has received some countenance in the citv, to the effect that Lord Ashburton has committed himself to the j American government, so far as to offer them his influence in getting a portion of the new State loan taken up in England. No credit is, however, attached to the report amongst respectable circles, lor these valid reasons, that it could form no part of his instructions as the accredited representative of his Sovereign and country on the one hand, and on the other it would be an impeachment of hi* character for sagacity and prudence, if he overstepjied these bounds with the existing (eating running so strong against American investf%uts on account of their o|h-ii and avowed violation of faith. After what has already occurred, what guarantee can be riven that the loan voted in the present session may aot be repudiated and thrown overboard in the next session of Congress ! The highest service that can be rendered the Americans is to allow them to rest for a time at least noon their own resources, that they may be compelled to rely upon patient steady perseverance in industrial pursuits, and not upon gambling speculation, which is certain to he fostered and encouraged so long as by any siwcies of gasconade and deception they arc able to dispose of w hat, by a misnomer, they denominate securities in the English market. The opinion, indeed, very generally expressed ii|>on the subject is, that whoever, under existing circumstances, bind themselves as agents to facilitate the sale of American bonds, will in some measure become a / nrtictjn rriminis in that cross violation of moral obligation, which has conferred such a had eminence on the present generation of the Anglo Saxon race under the verv extreme of popular institutions in the I'nited States. ?Isnulon Standard. Thk Rimer ok Search?Pari*, May 19.?Tin* Pari* pni>er* pf thin day are almo?t exclusively taken up with the protest of t'teneral ('as* (American Minister at the French Court,) which they copy from the 7Ym<i ot Friday last. Why they were not yesterday occupied with it was, because that, taking 'advantage ot the great Festival of PentacoBt, the majority of them refrained from publishing. The affair, has,however,lost nothing hy the delay. Im I'mtr again distinguishes itself as a warm advocate of " American Rights," and by its hostility to England?a course which public rumor continues to ascribe, irulv or falsely?not to the merits ot the question, but to the deep disfavor in which England is held at the Court of Her Majesty Queen Cliristi- ' na. ex-l'cgent of Spain. The entire Paris press?the Journal dft Ikhatt rsell included?see no means by which the Right of Search question can lie pacifically settled hut hj the withdraw a I ol the pretensions of England, or. in othei words, the suppression of ihe Treaty of the JOtlt of I tecentber. Mow I ir your government may feel inclined to abandon its present position, and relinquish the enforc-tn<-nt of that treaty, I know noi; but i' does not r ,-pear by any means necessary., after rl,? iMiivil mule hv Lnfil Ahcriiecn itiai it,.. ... i..?. nancr of your position nntl Brrnntrnce in the rxr'ru'ion of the treaty should brunt about war. Th. Vmyricaii obirrt only to your pretension* to -card tli"ir ships, and you only propose to n-crtmn if t?*. wis bearing the American flag be bono fide American. Unless, therefore, your act of ascertaining the nationality of a ship sailing under American colore be resisted, no danger of collision, and consequently of hostilities, exists. The risk consists only in the possibility that from some motive or other an American captain may refuse to give proofs of hi* I nationality, and so provoke forcible entrance into Ins ship to ascertain that fact, and that u life maybe lost in the attempt?a case which I confess could hardly fail to cau.-e much excitement iu tbe United States. Ilere is the only risk of war (I repeat) that presents itself from your carrying the treaty ol December 20, 1841, into execution, and for this chance you should be prepared : but it is so obvious, that it will no ilmihr hxve lieen foreseen hv T,ord Aberdeen. and will be obviated by Lord Aahburton and the American Government in their discussion r.| the |>oints at issue between the two countries. Some people here think that the refusal of France to ratify the treaty of December 20 would enhance the danger of w ir between Kngland and the I'nited States. _ 1 should be very sorry to believe that this impression Were well-founded, for I can assure you ? and I pledge tnysejf for the exactitude of that assurance?the treaty in question will never lie ratified bv France. If proof be wanted, you will haw it in a few days by a discussion that will be provoked in the Chai?!>erof Deputies. Again, itis urged that the President's approval of all tiiat (ieneral Cass has deemed it htsdutv to say and do on tfje subject (and which expressed approval is unquestionable,) argues a hostile disposition to Kngland on the part of tite American (Government; but the friends of peace draw a distinction between the approval and the performance of an act. Gen Cass took a view of the question and pronounced his opinion, and that is all. His pamphlet and his protest, and the expressed approbation of both by the President, bind the American Government to no course in (he negotiution* opened at Washington, and which, for all we know, may be conducted on, and directed to, points not embraced in the hook or protest of the American Minister in Paris. Thus, although the French press, the French public, and the French Chambers, and, 1 will add, the French Ministry, are opposed to the treaty of the 20th of December la.-t, and although it necessary that the chance of collision through the fault or the temper of an American captain of a ship be anticipated and provided for. and although Mr. Tyler has expressed his approbation of the book und protest of General Cass, which are both before you, there does not, fortunately, appear anything like real danger of a war between the lTnited States and the ino iiici uuiiuuy j ?ui mc picjmiaii?'ur> juj ucituu' on in the United States, to which my attention is also draw n, must be held as only precuuiionury, and to omit which, in the circumstances, no government would have been justified. Animal Magnetism ?With regard to "animal magnetism," as it is called, the case stands thus :? It is proved by eX|ieriment, that, in persons of a delicate nervous organization, certain most remarkable effects can be produced in the nervous system by the agency of another human being standing at a moderate distance and directing the [mints of the figures towards the brain, or moving them slowly up and down opposite the face. In the course ol a few minutes a state resembling somnambulism supervenes, in which the eyes are closed, the power of voluntary motion sus;>ende(l, and. although |>erlect consciousness Is retained, the will is completely paralyzed. Pome sort of relation seems to be established between the operator and patientinvoluntary nervous twitchings are excited by the motions of the former ut a considerable distance, and the nerves seem even to be subjected to the will of the magnctizer. From this state the patient is roused instantaneously, by the simple process ef the magnetizer dratving Ilia fingers transversely across the brow. The eylids start open, as if a spring were touched, and the natural state is restored as completely and suddenly as in the case of a somnambulist awakened from sleep. Up to this point there is no doubt of the facts They have been repeatedly witnessed and ascertained under circumstances which preclude the possibility of imposture ; indeed, iheyare by no means ol rare or extraordinary occurrence. and anv person who likes inuv convince himself of their truth by experimenting on his friends. IJevond this, however, certain extraordinary facts ure asserted by the adepts in the science, concerning tlie truth of which we say nothing. It is said that in certain rare eases a stale beyond that of common somnambulism, above described, supervenes, called clairvoyance, or lear-seeing, from the miraculous |>ower of seeing things by a new and unknown sense. In this state it is asserted that the patient can read with his eves shut or bandaged, or decipher u hook placed behind his back, and can see through walls and discern things going on at a distance of a hundred miles! It is further asserted that he becomes insensible to pain; and a well authenticated story is told of a lady who had a cancer extracted from her breast in a hospital at Paris, without being at all aware of it until the operation was OYeri For the truth of these and other mysterious facts connected with the state of clairvoyance, we do not pretend to vouch. It is enough that they liave been repeatedly asserted and as repeatedly denied bv respectable men. who have had opportunities of investigation, una that, us matters now stand, we must be content lo " equal folly call, Believing nothing, at believing all." Willi regard to the cause of these phenomena, we are euually at sea. The orthodox theory of grave, well-established physicians, who, front Harvey's time downwards, have always set their faces against novelties, is, that such part as cannot be put down to delusion, must be attributed to imaginalion, an explanation which, with all due submission appears to us only to adjourn the difficulty; 3ince. that the imagination should produce such singular t?r anomalous effects in the nervous system, is a thing quite as wonderful and mysterious as that there should be a magnetic influence or atmosphere. The second theory?that of the professors of animal magnetism generally?is, that the nervous fluid, or energy, which, from the experiments of Hir C. Bell, Prevost, Buquerel, and others, is known to exist, and to have a strong analogy to the electrical, is capable of being acted upon and disturbed by the nervous energy of another human body, properly directed by an effort of the will, and that this disturbance in the nervous system deranges the relations berween volition and motion, and causes the other attamolous and mysterious phenomena which are witnessed. A third theory has been lately nut forward by Mr. Braid, of Manchester, which differs from the second, by as.-erting that the derangement of the nervous system, which gives rise to the phenomena, is occasioned, not by the agencv of the nervous ener gy or will of the magnetizer, out by the tension of the muscles of the optic nerve and eye of the patient himself, producing a description of congestion of the brain. Which of these theories is the true one, or rather which is nearest the truth?for no one pretends to give a complete and scientific account of the phenomena?we do not pretend to sav; it is enough for us that there are several modes of explanation which afford some glimmering of light, and which promise, if followed up in a candid end liberal spirit of scientific research, to lead to most important results in that most important, though hitherto neglected, department of knowledge?human physiology, the reciprocal relations of mind and matter, nerves and imagination, will and muscular motion; and, in a word, the inward structure and mechanism of this vital frame, so wonderfully and |>erfectly devised. Hom'Xopxtiiv ?The attendance at Dr. Epp's third lecture on Friday last was much more numerous than on the previous occasions. The lecturer proceeded to explain the preparation of intinitrssimal doses. Ik said that when hommpathist* wished to prepare a medicine?suppose it were gold which tht v gave in cancer and caries?they look a grain of leai gold, the purest that could be obtained, and fW grains of sugar of milk, that article being cnmloyed immim; n wun mwi irrr irum liupuni ire, Hiiu ichpi j likely to interfere with the medicinal proi>ertics ol the agent employed. The sugar of milk was divided into parcels of .ft grains each. They then nibbed the grain of gold for six minutes with :t3 trains of the sugar of milk, and afterwards employed four miniittsto collect this tnjether at the bottom of the mortar. They then added :tl more grains of sugar of milk, rubbed that with the first 33grains for six minutes, and expended four minutes in collecting the whole front the sides of the mortar and pestle. The third parcel of 33 grains was thon rubbed for six minutea with the tie grains previously rubbed, and four minutes were again employed in carefully collecting the whole into a mass. This was called the first trituration. They then took one grain of the mass and subjected it to a like process of admixture with 9!) more grains of sugar of milk. A grain of this mass containing the ten thousandth part of a grain of gold, was again rubbed with 99 more grains of sugar of milk,divided as b< fore, and the process was continued until they got the millionth part of a grain. There was, therefore, no very great mystery about the matter, lait it was explicable in a few words. The process, however, did not terminate here. They took one grain from the million, dissolved it in fid drops of spirits of wine and .10 drops of water, and shook tin ni together; then took one drop of this and mixed it with 99 more drops of spirits of wine and water; aad then took unotner drop of this, and continued till the thirtieth degree, which was decennial, and the most common degree in which medicines were administered. They never used hut one mortar for one thing, and never desisted from an operation until it was finished. It took three hours for the preparation of one powder. A to thr operation of thear done*, the iVxitor referred to chemistry and the vegetable kingdom to prove the operation of atom upon atom, and he did not - e \\hy it should not he the same in medicine. lit was ii-teneJ lo with marked attention, and promised to enter more fully into the arguments ugninrt tin new system this cvenirg (FriJay.)

Within the past few weeks their acije tivity and energy has been fully illustrated by the prompt ee manner in which the whole gang of counterfeiters, who ic had resorted to this city to practice their arts, headed by nl the notorious Otis Allen, have been arretted, even before C" they had succeeded in passing Ave dollars of the spurious issues of which they had thousands. That their number is insufficient for the wants of this great and grow mgcity, we readily admit, hut no city in this Vuiun can show a body, of so few men, that can equal them in activity, energy and shrewdness. Wc speak from a full and practical knowledge of their daily transactions, contrasted with those attached to other cities, and not from out-door rumor and hear say, such as forms the foundation of three-fourths of the false statements published relative to them. In addition to a multiplicity of rumored allegations, we find some noise made relative to reported burglaries in the n_ upper part of the city, and an application of some fifteen lu.r?m In III..

" lie number of burglaries hare recently taken place in that vile. cinity we believe, and ever)- expedient has been resorted to by the Police Justice* and otficers, to remedy the comj1^ plaints and correct the offenders. Among those of recent rr occurrence, we note the following as an illustration of le- the activity of the officers, and as au evidence that half nd theso called "burglaritt" are caused by the same agents. A few weeks since the house of John R. Towusend, Rs<j., of No. 1 Washington Place, was supposed to have been burglariously entered, and silver plate, &c. valued at about $60, had been stolen. Complaint was made at the Police and officers Colvin and Relyea undertook the business.? > After much search and many sleepless nights, they disco1 vered that "the notorious burglar," who had entered the house by breaking a pane of glass in ono of the baccment windows and stealing the property, was a female servant in the employ of the family, and one in whom implicit ^ a confidence had been placed ! The property was found pp in her |K>ssession, whither she had removed it from y5 the .premises, and " the burglary" had been effected by l'l- her as follows:?In the first place she cut a pane of glass ilg out of the sash of the window, to give the ap pearance of a n" burglarious entrance, and then filled an empty barrel with as the silver, clothing, copper kettle, &c., which was nicely covered over with a cloth, and cellar dirt then sprinkled upon the top to prevent suspicion. This barrel was plucod 1P in the area of the house, and two days after " the burit, glary" had been committed, she hired a boy to convey the barrel from the dwelliug in a hand cart, in broad daylight, and while the inmates of the premises were in the room ne adjoining ! In addition to this case, we unhesitatingly assert that more than half "the burglars" that have been L committed to prison within the last six months, have been * servants in the families who have been robbed, and the iiiinuies in me mun 01 missions win iuiiy column our statement. Persons should therefore be extremely cauir" tious who they engage in that capacity, and insist,'in all cases, upon such a recommendation as will show previous y5 good character, if nothing more. fie Tiie Kibe on Saturday night, about 12 o'clock, con. i" sumed a portion of a building in the rear of 59 Vesey street ?but little damage was incurred, however. ^ or * Bon*.?On Sunday, tlio 15th 0^ last month, Mr. John Norton, an extensive and wealthy | shoe manufacturer, of Augusta, Oa., arrived iu this city ir in the brig Dimon, from Charleston, in a weak state of or health, with the intention of sailing for England to improve y- 't. He visited the refectory kept by John H. Burloy, on '.he south-cast corner of Broadway and Fulton-streets, the same afternoon, from whence it appears he was unable to be removed until Tuesday afternoon, when he was eonT' veyed to the Hospital,and died on Thursday the 19th. From the fact of his having considerable money by him, and [(ij some other circumstances attending his decease, Burley was arraigned before the Police last week, and fully exn" mined as to the cause of his death, when it was discovere,l that he had received a draft on the Fulton Bank for $315 from deceasoJ, which had been deposited with him in En the North River Bank, and a portion of the amount drawn out- The body was buried in the Greenwood Cemetary U- on the -20th ult., and tho friends of deceased requested a -uk disinterment of it yesterday, in order to investigate the o- cause of his death.

He desired to remain there during the night, ami so continued until the Tuesday afternoon folry. lowing, when he was removed to the Hospital. On Man* ah day he was unable to walk, and the next nay he was helped up by the occupants of tho refectory, and assisted Jn" to walk into the adjoining room. No 'physician was ol called in during the time, but Dr. Bahinomi. w ho came n(i into the refrectorv upon hearing his situation, recommended that he should have some stimulant, which was offered to him but he refused to drink it, saying that he lrj. never drank any thing. He acted very strangely, ns though he was not in his proper senses. ' Witness could me not ascertain from him where he came from, or what hi* of name was. John H. Rvri kt, the keeper of the refectory, testified that he knew nothing of tho man's being in his house until late in the afternoon ; that he went into the room where he was sleeping, after dusk, and awakened him, the telling him that it was time lie got up. In attempting to . raise himself he appeared to bavu no use of his right leg. and upon being placed on the floor he fell down. He was i 11 then put back in the bed and soon after, another attempt wns made to ?et him up but without acccompliahing it. He then paid lifty ccnta for hia lodging, and was allowed [|r to remain. On Monday morning witness endeavored to get him up again, hut was unsuccessful. In laying down his pocket-book dropped out of hia pocket, and at the same time he said, " Oh dearl what shall I do," or "what igF will become of me." He handed witnesa the pockot. book, and said, " take that, there ia plenty to pay my board, you needak be afraid." He then told witness he 'tr. was from Augusta, Oa., and said his name was John Norton, and that he had a family. The pocket-book conA. tained a $-2 and a $1 bill of southern money, a note due or ' , given in 1S40 for some $-200 drawn in his favor, and a draft (or $315, payable at Fulton bank in thia city at ten days' sight. The pocket-book was opened in hia presence, and lie then requested witness to get the draft accepted at urt the bank, which he did. Witnesa previously went to the Mayor, and informed him of the ciratn cumstanoes.
