It were idle to say it was a small meeting IVauec '.utside and inside the house there were more h ut enough to till Tammany Hall. But it was so awfully hot inside the llall that there were never more than tit*) in the room at any one time. But there were over 10d0outside the building, who were addressed with some spirit by Mr. Thayer. But the greatest number made their appearance at the bar, below stairs, where all the distinguished disappointed ones made a great display.

We nominate for the next Piesiduni of the United States IfKMtY CLAY, OK KENTUCKY We spread our banner to the breeze, and with a Hrm reliance upon the justice of ourcnuse, we confidently await the issue. Fellow-citizens, Americans' In this caiTse we invite your aid Upon hisown merits let our candidate he judged. (?o back to his early youth?trace him from the period so feelingly |<ortraveif in his farewell address?when, an orphan boy, the gallant State of " the dark and bloody er mil " adopting nun as hei son, first sent him forth to do he battle* of his country, to lib u . . i t n grctted retirement irom the councils of the Notion, you find hi in at all times the devoted patriot, the enlightened statesman, the honest man. He may be triyly described as American through and through -Ameriran in liis feelings, American in his aims, American in all his jiolicy and pro Who among thr actors in the scene can forget that mighty outpouring of patriotism, when in the darkest hour of nis country's need, when the l>ra\est faltered, and despair was brooding over the laud, he roused the dormant energies of the country, as iu a burst of indignant eloquence, whose tones reverberated ^throughout the l.'nion, > he proclaimed to the assembled representatives of the Nation: " My plnn would he to call out the ample, resources of the country, give thein a judicious direction, prosecute the war w ith the utmost vigor, strike wherever we can reach the enemy ut sea or on the land, and nego ciate the terms of a treaty at Quebec or Halifax. In such a cause, with the an! ol Providence, we must enme out crow nod with success ; but if we fail let us fail like men lash ourselves to our gallant tars, and expire together in one common cause, fighting lor 'Free Trade and Seaman's Rights !'" As the successful negociator of aD honorable pouce, the mediator whose calmness and decision quelled the angry passions which on two occasions threatened domestic dis cord and civil strife, as the advocate of independence for enslaved (ireece and throughout our whole western hemisphere, as the secretary in whoso hands the whole interests of the nation re|Hised with honor, and inhiselosing enrerrof Senator in Congress, in ull and every capacity, we challenge for his every act the strictest scrutiny. Political animosity has indeed pursued him with vengeful bitterness; calumny and slander have been busy with his name and fame, ami detraction had almost marked him for hcrown?hut like the mists of night before the morning sun, the clouds have ranished before tho light of truth, and he stands forth erect and pre-eminent, in the dignity of purity and patriotism. How marked the contrast! The one, with the regret and admiration of his fellow citi/cns, retiring from the glorious conciet of mind ami the honorable discharge of his country's trusts; the other, amidst the jeers of |>o itirnl foes and the reproaches of betrayed friends, clin ging to place at tho expense of honor. But, fellow citizens, other and higher objects than mere individual preferences demand our attention. To the depression of labor, tho destruction of credit, and the uttor prostration ol the business energies of the country, consequent upon the policy nml conduct of the late Administration. must he superadded a bankrupt Treasury, a National Debt, and a deficiency of revenue to provide for current cxpensei. At the same time, the blight of unshackled foreign competition has fallen upon the great manufacturing interests of the country, and our resources have been constantly drained us tribute to foreign enterprize, w hile our own has been utterly neglected. Our agricultural products, with few exceptions, are chiefly confined to a home market; nud discriminating duties abroad, couple,], in regard lo the colonial (mile, w ith restriction! amounting to ti total prohibition, have equally tilFected our commerce, ami almost placed the carrying trade of the sens in the hands of strangers. These three great In .inches of national industry and wealth nre in fact so linked together, that the same operating cause of prosperity or adversity extends its influence to all. British legislation indirectly accomplished more towards our national depression than ever before ensued front direct hostility and open w ar. Let us briefly examine its effects, as drawn by a master hand. "It cxclu es by interdicting duties all importations (except in time of approaching famine) of the great staple productions of the Middle anil Western States. It proscribes with equal rigor, the bulkier lumber and live stock of the same |>ortioii and also of the Northern and Eastern part of our Union. It abounds with regulations of interdict upon all the productions of our soil or industry w hirh come in competion with its own. But the Cotton, indispensable for their looms, they will receive to weave it into a tahric for our own wear to the destruction of our own mannta- tu. es." Need we wonder at the stagnation of trade, that onrships should lie dismantled at our wharves, our looms no longer he in motion, our mechanics unemployed, and the hum of business hushed in our streets, w hen the aolf protecting power o( tho country is nut exerted to counteract this bias of foreign legislation ? These things, fellow citizens, should not, must not lie and through the candidate whom we have nominated, we advocate n revision of tho present Tariff, so as to impart protection to domestic industry .provide an ample revenue, restore the national credit and replenish uii exhausted treasury, without aggravating the burdens imposed on the other great interests of the country. We believe, also, that the proceeds of the Public Lands belong rightfully to the States?that the expensesof Government in time ot peace should he met from other sources, and that the present si stem of distribution ought not to he disturbed. We are in favor of a restriction of the Presidential service to a single term?of a retrenchment of public expenditure in the Legislative, Judicial and Executive Departments of the Government?of a strict accountability ol public officers?of a uniform currency, based alike upon the public faith and private resources, anil of a total separa tion of the purse and the sword. In the support of these principles we ask your co-operation, and as their A Ivoeute in times past, their Champion in the hour of peril, ami their only sure Reliance in time to come, we call upon ion, one and nil. to rally in hehall u tl II rjr ol (lie IVest.*' When the reader came to the words in the address. " We nc: inatr for the next President of the United Stales. Hiiar < i. iv. or Kfxtiw kv," the cheers were tremendous *nd shook the building. The address was unanimously adopted. Some obscure individual, whom- name was known to rerj* few, then laid:?It is my duty, on behall of the Committee of Arrangements, to submit for your approval the following prenmnlo and resolutions:? Whereas, the imbecile course of the National Admin* istration?the embarrassed conditio . the country?the stagnation of trade and commerce?tliodeclines of mniiufaetnres?the disordered state of the currency?the depression in the value of labor?the great prostration of inlustrj -and the paralized rendition of the energies and resources of tlie nation, all indicate that the time has arrived when it is alike just and patriotic for the people to consider the remedies for these alarming evils, and to make a prompt and fearless public declaration of that course s\ hich they deem essential to a restoration of national prosperity : And whereas.' receut experience demonstrates that the President of the United States yielding to the dictates of a misguided ambition, constantly thwart* the efforts of the National Legislature; and instead of acting in concert with the representatives of the people, seeks to represent himself, instead of the nation, thereby forbidding any reasonable hope of better things during his ofliaial term : And whereas, it is apparent that to secure on efficient and dignified administration of the government, it is re quisite that a Chief Magistrate should be selected, who not only Combines in his character brilliant natural endowments, wisdom matured by experience, energy tempered hy prudence, but who is emphatically an honest man, and who shall act with a single aim for the advancement,happiness and glory of his country. And whereas, among the many distinguished servants of the People, the name of Henrv t 'lav is illustrious, us blending in a pre-eminent degree these important requisites of agreat and good chief magistrate Therefore, li it Resolved, That we, the Democratic Whig Electors ol the city of New York. do hereby nominate llenrv t'lav. ol Kentucky, as n candidate for tin- Presidency in IfM-t.

What else are we lighting lor / w hat else has been the aim of the whigs since tha abrogation of Chariest I I .iVIiPt else but the downfall of exec utive usurpation lies nt the Ion rotation of the w hig party ? For that we assumed the ..ame! In 1834. it was the act of executive usurpation which led us to as. ume the name of whigs! It is a name made sacred by two centuries of warfare against the power of oppression. In 1S34 wedded to assume this name, and like onr fathers, we placed that name on our banners when we went to battle against executive usurpation, and the people seeing the tru.h of onr cause, rallied to our support. Mr. Chairman and gentlemen, yon all recollect the eontcst of '34. when for the fir t time we unfurled our banner inscribed with the name of whigs. It was the charter election. Never among the innumerable battles we have fonj'ht, was one more gallantly fought, or more gloriously won. (Loud applause.) Let us go to those times. Then there was no envy, or jealousy, or elfishness. We loved each other. Wa loved the cause, and victory attended our efforts. Fellow-citizens, I remember well when we used to meet together, for 1 have addressed you on every occasion fromthnt time to this.? We rallied a! the fall election in 1834, and were then defeated. We rallied again in 1830, and were again defeated. In l?3flw? rallied again with the venerated nam of Harrison inscribed on our banner. It was gallantly fought, but vic.ory w;u not pre part ! to alight on our banner,and igain we were defeated. V? e hnd tailed and faiiml again, but we rallied again in 1837 ; but, Freedom'" bottle off begun. Bequeathed from bleeding she to son, Though baffled off, is ever won. We swept the Bute In I xli, and victory crowned our I'llorts. In 1838, do you remember how-they came upon as?State after Sltati' fell awav I Bat New York was the rock against which the black seas of destruction, in all heir helloffury nndopjiosition, boiled in vain. From that noment we never rallied again till we swept the country n the great crusade of 1* 40. ( Tremendous cheering.) In 1810 the whole country tallied us one man, and we elect 4 the lamented Harrison as our President, to carry out nir principles. Mr. Hall here made a considerable pause, and drank a umbler of water, w hen tone person came in and said that he crowd oultidt wanted to hear Mr. Hall, and he hoped le would goto them. Mr. Hall accordingly went, but is there was no lights our r? porter could not take any iotes of what he said in the open nir. < Jeneral Root was then called on, and was received an -ismg w itli great cheering. After, ing on account >f his age. wnirh rendered him unfit for rousing the enthui.i m of j outh, he said that although he was n member of the Court of Krrors. and being invited here this evening, o attend on the nomination of Henry f 'lny lor President, I rell no |io!itirnl sensibilities forbidding me to resjxind to he call. The nomination of Henry Clay was already made by every w hig throughout this wide extended conn:t\ ! (Cheers.) Tin-universal pulsation of the whig heart ml called Harry Clay to the Presidential Chair. The jnlv question in my mind was whether it was not too enrtv to respond to this pulsation. But in mv judgment it lm? now become nrce**ary. After th'? death of the beloved Hnrri'on. and after carrying all except the one ^reat j.nriini?iiint measure which vva* vetoed, then th? tVliig parts despaiod of that xtirress which it had la' ievedha.l la-en achieved.

The thirteen 'Jnited Colonies had many ot thein " crowu lands" with:u their terrrloriea, and they all united in the war to recover their landa from the Britiih crown.

And !or what purpose were they granted / To carry on tin xpenseof the war the lands were pledged lor the ri-dempicn of the public credit.

(Great apjilatise.) I feel that I have detained you too long, (No?No!) and I must conclude. Let me entreat you to goon with tenfold energy in this work. It only requires your principles to lot embodied in the person of one so long identified with them, to render their triumph complete. Carry this reflection home with you, and let it have full operation; and if the State of New York be found on the side of Henry Clav the victory of the whig party is complete. Mr. Graham then resumed his seat amid great applause.

Fanny Klssler at the Park Last Night. The house wuscrowded to suffocation last Pit, boxen, gallery, and dress circle, was crammed to sutfocuiion; the performances went oft with mi nieme trial, and the applause far exceeded any thing previously bestowed upon the divine dunmtuc. The ' Buvaptn Cuba no"?the village dance ol Cuba?is certainly the most striking and original tiling of all the salutatory ramifications we ever saw in our part of the world. And, as executed by Elssler, it ia certainly one of the most pleasing things we ever beheld, either on or oil' the stage. The archness ihe drollery ol the look, and the fantastic variety of the dance?must be seen to be appreciated To describe it, is impossible. The " Sapateo de Cadiz," the chef d'ocuvre of the night, took the house by storm. The music ol the latter was truly delicious, and Fanny's most exquisite dancing completed the ravishing eHect. The audience could not keep their seats. To restrain the enthusiasm within thebotwds of propriety wns absolutely impossible " Encore" was shouted Irom pit to ceiling, until it was re|ieated. And, we presume, "encore" was was shouted by many a devotee in their dreams.? Fanny, of course, was called out, and general cries lor a re-engagement ensued; so desirous were the people ol this city, to retain this most exquisite rutistf amongst us for even a short time longer. Fanny, much embarrssscd, came down t? the foot lights and spoke as follows:? "This is the last night 1 will appear before you on inv own behalf; but I am sure you will not be in different to the appeals of pthcrs. I nm spared, then, a little longer, the pain of taking farewell, and I rejoice at my reprieve." This speech was most admirably given, and was a beautiful climax to a night of triumph It was hailed with repeated, cheers, and wreaths and bouquets fell till the curtain hid her Irom the audience. of the City.?It is said that a considerable number of cases of cholera of an aggravated character, have occurred in ihe rite u illnn ihc nasi I ten days.

It is quite evident that it is a natural and inevitable ' nsequence to society ot all kinds, that attempts liould be made to alleviate pain, to heal wounds, and repair the injuries to which the body is every tiour exposed ; aud however rude and linperiect these attempts may have been, yet we always find them keeping pace with the advance of civilization -nd intellectual light. As tar hack in the history of the world as authentic record carries us,we have constant proof of a devotion, more or less energetic, to the practice of medicine. In those early days, the Priests were the depositories ol medical lore, a circumstance which originated among the Jews from Divine command, t)ul which was perpetuated among them, an well us the other contemporary nations, by the Hii|>enor education which this particular class received, and the consequent superior knowledge on all other subjects which they evinced. This association of Priest and Physician was by no means favorable to the advance of medicine, as a science ; the one was prostituted from its legitimate aims to secure and maintain the ascendancy of the other, and the treatment of diseases was cloaked under the most superstitious rites and ceremonies. Ahout 3(10 years R. C. the im|M>rtance of studying medicine,on a pro|ier system, was acknowledged in the foundation of the first school at Alexandria, through the munificence ol the Ptolemies. Here it was taught in its various brunches, and here some of the most illustrious men, whose names adorn the pages of medical literature, received their elementary instruction. For several centuries afterthia period, medicine was prosecuted with equal ardor in the Arabian and Saracenic schools, and imitating the example set by Al. exuudriu, the Neapolitan Colleges of Monte Caseino and Salerno, acquired considerable celebrity. During the period of the " dark ages" the science of medicine was involved in the general gloom,which overspread the natious of Europe, and it was not until the art ol printing had introduced a new era in the world's history, that the " healing art" with the other sciences was ugain cultivated with diligence una success. cnnce Mis great epoch the medical prolession has steadily progressed, and by a long series of splendid discoveries has conferred innumerable blessings on sutiering humanity. Much, however, remains to be done towards the purification and elevation of medical science. Owing to defective systems of education, nnd from the unfaithful and remiss manner in which the road to professional titles and distinctions has been guarded, especially in this country, many men have been licensed to practise who are quite unfit to be entrusted with the care of the health of their fellow-beings, and wlpse incapacity has been proclaimed by the commission of most deplorable blunders. A mistrust in the judgment and skill uud truth of the doctrines and modes of practice of the Faculty, has thus, and not without reason, been created, and the way opened for the access of individuals not regularly educated in the profession, hut who have boldly undertaken to correct the errors of the regular practitioners, as they are called, by recommending new and more simple modes of treating the numerous diseases which afilict the sons and daughters of Adam. Now these "quacks," as they are contemptuously , designated by the "regulars," have done much to introduce a revolution in medical science. Like the Itardy, rough-hewn pioneers of colonization, these worn foes of the diplomatised professors^of the 'healing art," have cleared the way for the more useful labors of those, who having the skill and science which they lacked, may follow in their path, carefully avoiding the errors into which ignorance ind rashness had betrayed their predecessors. The fraternity, whom we have thus described us the pi- , jneers of improvement and reform in the great field jf medical science, have indeed, in not a lew in- i stances, triumphed over the "regulars," but then iheir defective medical knowledge, and want of ac iu>uiitance with the principles of pharmacy, and chemical and botanical science, have led to rather uncomfortable mistakes to all parties concerned. The establishment at this juncture, of a scientific institution for compounding medicines according to the present improved state of chemical and pharmaceutical science, would a|>pear to lie very oiportune. Indeed, to a population like that of the ITnited States, exposed to so many vicissitudes of climate and so varied endemic influences, and many thousands of which mast find it impossible to obtain proper medical advice from a physician, the institution of the "New York Coixeok of Medicine and Pharmacy," which will, it seems, prepare medicines adapted for the cure of all diseases incident to this country, accompanied by full and intelligible directions for use, must piove very acceptable. If such an association acts up to its announcement, and perpetrates no deception, it will certainly produce a curious revolution in the whole practice of medicine in this country. And so in the name of Galen and Esculapiua we bid it "go ahead." Smcgglino on tiie Lines.?It has been carried on pretty extensively of late of the Canada lines.

Mr. Evan-. was anxious to take up the Army Appropriation Bill, but Mr Wai.ker insisted upon going on with the unfinished business, which was the bill respecting "remedial justice"?to transfer causes front the State to the United States courts. Mr. Evans made a mint of order. Mr. Wai-ker offered to yield tinHoor it Mr. Evans would call un the "little tariff bill." But Mr. Evans would maae no stipulations, and Mr. Wai.keh proceeded with aepeech. Tie extensive tariff bill cannot now be passed in reason to be coimnunicated to the more remote Itoints where revenue is collected. There will be no lose to the government, nevertheless, for the President will see that the power vested in the Executive to provide for such n contingency, is properly exercised. Tlv effect of the culpable neglect of Congress,f therforc, will be guarded against by the . vigilance of the President. 'i lie House went into Committee on the tariff bill at an early hour. A communication was read from the President in answer to n resolution calling for information touching the Quintruple trentv. The President states that the government has not an official copy of the treaty, and that there is no information in his possession proper to he sent to Congress in the present condition of the negociation The debate on the tariff drags heavily There is no struggle for the floor?no listeners to the speeches, and comparatively little interest manifested in any quarter. The interest, however, is deep and all-pervading, hut the consequences of the folly of the whigs in mixing up distribution with the tariff Hre lieginning to be discovered, and the utmost solicitude prevails. The whigs are on the verge of a division that will be fatal to the tariff question, and there seems to he no way to avert it. The western whigs will sacrifice the tariff rather than give up distribution, and it is impossible to see how the President can consent to violate two compromises to preserve the absurd distribution principle. What the result will he no man can tell, but the presumption is that no tariff bill will be. !>aesed during the present Congress. Baltimore.
