0 NF.W YORK HERALD. Stv* York. WNtiiMdajr, AU)(Uit 41, IHI . Important prom Washington?Piiouammtv a Tariff?By o?r accounts from Washington, u/to j three o'cbck on Monday afternoon, there wis a strong probability that a tariff at last would pa without the distribution clause. Our postscript0' this morning, pub tshed after this is written, will show what chance there is of this inure plainly. If such a result t-hould take place, it proves conclusive y that Captuin John Tyler is truly a " live fi?!i " in it aw in un the ?treani .igitinst every cur* rent and eddy. Hi* last veto has completely de molt-hed the whig*, and left them without a foot to stand upon. They 'ear it?thev see it and tifey Mihinit to their fate with sonie reluctance, but demolished they are, to every intent and purpose. This new tariff will exclude the articles of tea and coflee ftom any duty?but otherwise it will be the 1 ite tariff hill without the distribution clause. We believe the President will sign it at once, and tlxm settle the question for the present. It will be victory enough for one session?hut how the whiga will swear, and rave, und tuke on, is none of sur business. Such then is the state of things. The new treaty with England, and the new tariff, will be enough to give a great start to all kiada of business?and lie ihe means of reviving trade and commerce. With the immense crops?the currency getting better every day?the btok'n banks and paper institutions exploding around us?a sound trade, on a right basis, must grow up throughout the country in less than six months. Such are the first ellects of a firm union between John Tvl-r and John C. Calhoun in the administration of public affairs. More extraordinary results will soon follow Hive patience, ye fools. Lord A^hbfrton's Movements?Yesterday morning Lord Ashburton got up at th? usual hour, and took breakfust at the Astor House, in the best style of Stetson Jc Coleinan. His Lordship says he never saw such a splendid hotel, or one kept in s ti h a rerhnchd style even in Europe ; so that he is not alone ou fnir in making treaties. In the course of the morning he visited the vein-ruble Albert Gallatin, and had an interview with the great old statesman of nearly two hours. They talked of the Treaty, but particularly of the singular financial condition of the country?the State credit ?the mi-management ot the banks?the wealth of the publ c, and the folly of its business classes ? Lord Ashburton thinks that the United States is the greatest nation under the sun?with the best institutions, liwsand religion ; but the worst set of financiers and statesmen that ever cursed any nation. In tl'H opinion his Lordship is a man of sense mid shrewdness, and shows his knowledge of the wisdom in the Herald's pagis. About 4 o'clock, Lord Ashburton proceeded over Iloboken ferry, in the carriage of James G. King, i and dined with a select party at his beautiful o'i t- J ttJu, called Highwood, on the heights of Weehaw- i ken. At this party. Lord John Hay, John 0. King, ' and several distinguished official characters w< r* 1 present?one or more of the commissioners of the Corner, the British Consul, and several other persons of distinction. They sat down to a most unitj .c dinner, prepared in the exquisite style of Mr. King's cuisine, about half past five o'clock. It was a ] iruly delightful ocrusion, and much pleasant talk 1 and useful hint took place. One of the leading to- J pics of conversation was, " what will the several ) Siates do to recover their credit 1"?being the go. d f old Bible inquiry, "What shall I do to be saved !" ^ It was gen-rallv agreed that such a desirable result c in only be brought about by a union of faith und ? good works ; in other words, by confidence, induj- * try, and strictly just commercial principles, in i ll ' matters of trade. ? In the evening, Lord Ashburton returned to ti e t A^tor II ?.se, a id this morning, accompanied Ly Lord John II :y, bet ikes his departure in the NVv ^ II ' en boat for Ro-ton. He will proceed through jH irtfotd, Sptingfield, and remain in Boston and its * neighborhood up to Monday next. On the morning 1 i t thAt day h" w ill leave Boston, by the Western j Railroad, for Albany, remain there one night, and < return to New York next Tuesday. Next W>dn- >- ' d iv or Thnrs lay his farew'e!! lever will take place nt the Astor House?and on Friday the great dinner 1 w ill be given him by the whole commercial world 1 of Xrw York. After that event, lie will take up Ins 1 departure for "merrie old England," nnd bid a final ' adieu to these shores. Good luck to Iiis Lordship, < wherever he goes. He is a sensible and an honest ? man, a title that no monarch can bestow. ' The De mand for Governor Dorr?Rkti'RX op ! Governor Arnold to Hhodk I3la.nd.?Ex-Go- 11 vernor Arnold, it will be remembered, left l'rovi- " denctc a lew days ago for New Hampshire, to de- '( m ind the body of Governor DotT. He has returned to Providence without hiin. He waited upon Gov. Hubbard, ot N-w Hampshire, in obedience to his ^ instructions, with a requisition from Gov. K ng, for n warrant to arrest Thomas W. Dorr, now in the * S ate of New Hampshire. Gov. Hubbard respect- t| fillv, but firmly and decidedly, declined obeying the requisition, ami stated to Governor Arnold thnt he would forward, by mail, his remoiu for so de- ^ dining, addressed to "Samuel W. King, acting ^ Governor ot Rhode Island." #1 Gov Arnold was well treated by the authorities of New Hampshire, though lie was in respectful Ian- ^ guage told that he did not represent the legal Governor ol Rhode Island. There is, of course, murli anxiety to see Governor Hubbard's letter, justifying s his course. It was believed, when Gov. Arnold d l?*ft, that his mission would not be attended with f success, and some thought he might meet with ill b treatment. Those who knew Gov. Hubbard, how- C ever, could not, 011 reflection, reconcile the latter P inure?ion with the gentleman's reputation for in- * t- uence and honesty, whatever might be his poll- o tical feelings. 0 E.iiio&ATiox?We have repea tedly spoken of the E immense value and importance the system of emi yjtion was to this country, when it was properly a directed, and in right hands.

Elkoa.nt Litesati-x*.-A New Last's Boor We have just had laid on our editorial table, one of the ma.?f elegant periodicals that haa been issued in France, EoKltud, or America tor the last five years. It is entitled, "THK ARTIST, a Monthly Laxcv'b Book," and is published by F. Quarle, W Read street, at the low price of #3 per annum. The first number of this truly beautiful work will be issued to subscribers on the 1st of Septemb -r next. It is printed at the Herald Establishment; it is the first of abeautifal series of works which we shall in the course of time issue to the public, ai.d which will form an entirely new era in the history of periodical literature in this country. The great want that has existed for a superior work of this kind, has long been seen in the enor* mous demand for such works as "Godey's Lady's Book," "iSnowden's Lady's Companion," a: d " Graham's Magazine." Of these three works there are published, conjointly, every month about 50,000 copies; only neither of them can rank higher than third or fourth-rate works, either as regards literature or art. In fact, wnen these works were commenced?one six, another five, and another two years ago?ihey were the most contemptible things imaginable ; and even now, except in a fe.v instances, they are most trashy affairs. What do they contain but miserable hashed-up stories, and tales that have been translated and re translated, and plagiarised forthetenth time from every living language almost beneath the sun ; sonnets that make one positively sick to read them; the whole without point, or meaning, or the slightest interest to any member of the human family ? And, as v. e have but recently seen, in many instances, the same articles are published over and over in the same magazine, without the slightest explanation or apology Then as to the artistical talent displayed in these works; why, the whole of it melted down into a very small compass would not be worthy the name of talent. The plates of the fashions are invariably six months behind, and are the most horridlv exe cuted things imaginable?stiff, formal, without symmetry, taste, or color?they are utterly contemptible. Of the other illustrations, the greater part are daubs?specimen plates presented gratuitously by young artists, in order to get into notice and obtain employment; with occasionally a tolerable engraving (never an original one) copied from English or American works, reprinted for the twentieth time. But in this truly beautiful work before us, the " Artist," the stories and illustrations are altogether on a different plan. Mons. Quarrl, who isa Frenchman of most exquisite taste and skill, is himself the artist, and directs the whole of the illustrations to this elegant work. He embellishes each number with three mperbly colored platct, one on some general subject, one a flower-piece, and a magnificent plate of the newest fashions, as received direct from Faris. The literary illustrations are altogether of a very superior character. M. Quarre has engaged the best talent in the country, and paid them liberally to contribute to his work. Of the printing ind execution of the work, it is only necessary^o lay, that it cannot be surpassed by any establishment in this city. Thk Theatrical Fcnd.?We find the following taragraph in relation to this matter in the " London Morning Chronicle "New York Theatrical Fund.?Our friend Fanny Elssler has not only earned great wealth, but ilso much honor and renown by her trip to America. 3he has just finished a career unexampled for success in the United States, by an act which will cau-?e ler memory to be respected for ages f> come. She iddressed a letter to the influential citizens of New fork, with a view to the institution of some society or the relief of those of her profession wh? have lot been so fortunate as herself. The letter displays i noble and even masculine mind, and has been re ponded to with that warmth which is the charactelstic of the Americans. A public meeting was lmnediately called,at which a committee of merchants ind professionals was appointed to draw up a constiution and regulations for the collection and inalagement ?tf a fund for the relief of aged and de- i ay?d performers generally, and several thousand lollara wrre sDeedtlv subscribed, the divinp Fnnnu' leraelf being a donor to a very considerable amount. the first of July, a benefit, in aid of the fund, ook place at the Park Theatre, which was filled ilmost to suffocation. The receipts amounted to 1,326 dollars, and the plaudits and bouquets shower'd upon their favorite Fanny, who performed before hem for the last time, defies all description." Here we have an announcement that the receipts if that celebrated night amounted to ?2,326; and a e have hut little doubt that the statement is cor ecf, and very probably comes from information nforded by Fanny Elssler herself. Dot this account lees not tally very well with the statement published by the trustees, or by a sort of semi-official atihority of theirs, that the receipts of that night were ' nly about ?250 or ?350 ; and that the money was ivested in the Savings' Bank, where it is to remain ntil next spring ; when it is said a grand dinner is ) be given, and the establishment of the Fund is to ate frotu that period. This latter statement, however, is a very queer ne; and unless Messrs. Hone and Barry, and Geo. '. Morris, all come out with a full account, and late positively how much was actually received on lat night, the public may possibly believe that ley are going to eat up the whole of the proceeds f that night in one grand dinner. And if only ?250 rere received, why that sum deserves to be eat up. >ne stipulation, however, we must make with lesjrs. Morris, and Barry, and Hone; and that is, hat if they do eat up the money, they will by all [leans give us a chance to see fair play, by inviting is to the feast. Colma.n's, Broadway.?This place is the very anctuary of the arts and sciences in this city, and leserves the best encouragement. It is beautifully ' itted up, and contains the choicest collection of ( ooks and prints on this side of the Atlantic. Mr. 'olinan has long been a successful caterer for the ublic ; he has been at an enormous expense, and ve trust will receive a liberal patronage. No visiter r resident of this city, who lays claim to a particle i f taste, should omit visiting Colman's saloon, 203, (roadway. A Ltvi Fish ?We have at last caught an origin- ] 1 genius?a live fish?in the person of Mike Walsh, I uptain of the Spartans.

And hereafter, the very name of Mike l^alsh as one of the orators, will be sure to bring a rowd to any political meeting, and an attentive and plighted auditory, provided he always makes such leeches as that. We must have a committee to ike charge of Mike. New Briohtov.?This delightful place is filling P fast with the most fashionable company in the ountry.

(On re'ering to the log, it was found that a court martial was in session at that time.) The Jl'duc Advocate remarked, that Lt. Wilkes admitted the dates in the third charge to be correct. Mr. Hamilton said he did not admit any such thing, but he waived his right to object, or take any advantage of any such errors. Lt. P.mmons called by the Judge Advocate and sworn. Jt'aoc Advocate.?State the circumstances of the attack on canoe* at the island of Malolo, on the day ui the attack. A.?1 had command of the force* afloat, and 1 hail two skirmishes during the day with seven war canoes, manned with ten men each- My force consisted of the first cutter, at one attack, manned by eight men ; at the other by seven. 1 took six of the seven canoes, and the other escaped through the surf over the reef. There were between twenty and thirty natives killed. I returned the captured canoes to the Porpoise, with the exception ofour, which was partly aunk, and I anchored her on the rent. Q?Did you know these cauoes were manned by inhabitants of the island of Malolo 1 A.?1 did ; they all acknowledged it ao through the interpreter. Q?Did they make this acknowledgment before or after the shooting ? A.?Before. Q.?How many of your party were killed or wounded in these skirmishes ? A?None were killed, several were hit, but none seriously wounded. 1 waa hit myself Several spears were thrown into the boat. Q?Were all the canoes of the town destroyed I A.?All we could find. Q?On what did those inhabitant* depend for subsistence ? A?By fishing, bread fruit*, yams, tarrou and cocoanuts. Q.?Were not most of those sources of existence destroyed ? A No sir. I saw cocoanut trees standinr. and thev could not destroy the tarrou without digging it up ; it was not the season when a great stock of yams was on hand. I'hey afterwards furnished us with many of those articles. Q.?Voluntarily, sir. A.?No sir, but from stipulation, after very little time allowed them. Crotrtxamintd by Mr. Hamilton, through the Judge Advocate. Q?Were Lieut. Underwood and Midshipman Henry attached to the Exploring Expedition, if yea, were they not destroyed on the island of Malolo, about the JSth of July, 1?40 1 State all you know about it. A?They were attached to the Expedition, and were destroyed at the island of Malolo about that date. They were, together with myself, Lieutenant Alden and Midshipman Clark, attached to boats surveying the island of Malolo, and others in the same group. Being out of provisions, and at the time separated from the squadron, Lieut. Underwood was induced, through consent of Lieut. Alden and the promise of the natives to furnish provisions,to land at the town ofSoalib, for the purpose of obtaining some provisions?pigs, vegetables and fruit. The principal chief of this town had previously sent his spokesman to invite us to this town, stating that he had these things 1 have before specified, to make a present to the party, if they would come for them. Every inducement was offered them to bring them oir to the baats, but they declined doiug so. This was the final reason that induced Mr. Underwood to land. Previous to doing so, however, he detained a chief as a hostage, and upon Lieut. Aldeu's joining him he waa obliged to separate, inconsequence of a coral reef that asperated them from the town, Lt. Underwood's boat drawing less water, and when the tide rose Lt. Alden joined him. He then passed the hostage to Lt. Alden's boat, and approached the beach for the purpose of receiving the present irom the town. 1 soon after joined It. Alden with my own boat, when he commenced telling me that the chief, or hostage, then in his ooat, had endeavored to escape?he had just hauled him into the boat?and while relating this to me he actually made his escape, by jumping over the stern-sheets into the water, which was irom three to four feet deep be t ween the boat and the shore. Lt. Underwood was on [he shore when I joined Lt. Alden, and wm all this time negotiating with .he native* on shore. His boat's crew and Midshipman Henry were with him. He landed w ith his boat's crew in the first place, and finding that the natives would not make him a present of the things, as promised, but asked more that he was able to exchange for them, he sent of) a canoe to Lt. Alden's boat to get a hatchet and other things. On the return of the canoe, Midshipman Henry went totheshore in it, he having volunteered and obtained the consent of Lt. Alden to go. This was previous to the chiefs escape. As quick as this hostage escaped from the boat an endeavor was made to re-capture hiin. In tho meantime it was discovered that the party were engaged on shore fighting. The natite* had increased from nhetit twenty to over a hundred, having been secreted in the bushes close to the beach. I immediately relinquished the chase for the hoatsgc. and put my boat in for the shore, accompanied by Lt. Alden,and com. menced a random firing at the natives. Therp w ere many of them wading out toward! the boats. Several of tbem were seen to fall, and were dragged olf by their companions. The natives retreated as we advanced. Our boais loon took the coral, and we jumped overboarJ, and w aded o the shore. Ou arriving there we found the bodies of Lt. Underwood aad Midshipman Henry on the beach close othe water. Midshipman Henry was entirely naked, and Lt. L'nderwood had on a pair of thick canvass trousers hoy could not tear off. They were both wounded in the lead. All the crew were wounded, and one of the men was crazv on the beach. Q ? Diil you inquire of the persons in the canoes, menioiied in your direct examination, whether they belonged o the Island of Malolo, to aa to be sure you did not injure he wrong (fcrsons ? A.?Yes, sir; and they informed us they belonged [here. Q?Did not Lieut. Wilkes endeavor to restrain tho sean?n from killing the inhabitants of Malolo 7 A.?He did. Q.?Have you not expressed a belief that Lieut. Wilkes was moderate in his punishment of the inhabitants 7 A.?I thought so at the time, i nd have often said so. I 'eceived an order from Lieut. Wilkes on that day to cease lostilities, and felt mortified, because I thought they had lot been puniahed enough. Q.?lias not the conduct of Lieut Wilkes, so far as it ;ias come under your obstrration, been marked with forbearance to the natives; snd has not the attacks uniformly beeu to further the objects of the Exploring Expedition, suppress hostilities, and for tho protection of commerce 7 The .f i'doe Anvot unobjected to this question, on the ground that ihe witness was merely oulled upon to state his impressions. The Court w as cleared, and re-opened in five minutes, w hen the Juooe Advocate stated the Court had overluled hi? objection, and the witness would proceed to answ t-r the quesiiua. A.?It has, w ith the exception of Clermont Tonnarre; and I know more of that from hearsay than observation. I wns (liitiinrp nfT chnr* oml frr*m !?? ?n?t.- A*. ronstder tnyiell capable of judging of that affair. Q?By Jcdok Advocstk?Did not the attack of the :own at Vcuna Lehru take place some ahort time prcvioua to the death ol Lieutenant Underwood and Midshipman Henry ? A.?Yea, air. Vd Would not thia catastrophe hare been avoided, f a s ithcieut number of men had been landed with hem 1 A.?It might have been; I can't aay ; but our whole rorce waa email, not over thirty or forty men, and the nativea were in large number* on the Island. <d-By Mr. H ^iLTa*.?II fir diataatia Sandalwood Bay from Milolo, and i? there any intercourse between the two place* 7 A.?The distance la between So and 100 milea.

There are churches end school houses on the island efUpolo, and there arc towns called Deeil townswhere there are no missionaries There were no mission, ariee at the towna burned. There waa a white-washed house burned at Kaluafata, and it was by this mark we distinguished school houses. It Is impossible to say whether this was a school house.

"17, 1839, directing him to make a circuit round an island with the Flying Fish, and effect a landing if practicable, make observations, Lc. ' and return about sunset.

There we succeeded in landing, and bad proceeded but a short distance from the beach, when we were met by a large partj of natives, who forced as to return to oar boats ? While getting mv party Into the boats, Lt. Wilkes pulled into the surf, and thinking he might want my assistance, 1 asked him if he wanted me; he said no, and told me to put the geutlemen on board. 1 proceeded to do so. and pulled towards the achoonor, which was about a mile io windward. We arrived on board just before sundown, and 1 immediately run down to the Vincennes. When within hail, Lt, Wilkes ordered me to aend a boat on board, which 1 did, ai soon as the gentlemen could get on board. About the time she arrived Lt.

A few minutes after, the Vincennes hove to, on the larboard tack, with her tnaintopsail to the mast. I run under his loe, and when on his lue quarter, Lieut. W. ordered me to heave to; he was going to send some gentlemen on board. I was then in a position which rendered immediate obedience to his order* improper, for I should have fouled the vessel. Lieut. Wilkes, in a very short time after, hailed me again, and said, " heave to?keave to, sir." I stood on, to get a proper position, and Lt. Wilkes again hailed, ordering me in an angry tone to heave to. I hove to, and lay athwart his hawser; his jibhoom waa over the vessel. Lieut. W. appeared on the forecastle, and enclaimed, " I never saw any thing like it?what do vou mean, sir 7? what do you mean T" I answered that I had hove to in obedience to his repeated order. He sang out again, " I never ordered*you to heave to under my bow." I thought I had onlv heard part of what he said, and I demanded to know what he said; he left the forecastle without answering. Q.?Did you hear all he did say 7 A.?1 don't know?I think I did not. By CocaT What was the relative position of the Vincennes and the Flying Fish, when you was first ordered to heave to 7 A I ?rn? I J ? J hail I brought the vend to then, I believe ahe would almost immediately have fouled. Q ? Wa? there any thing to prevent yon from hearing off, and getting te leeward ? A.?Tnere wa? not; but I considered it improper to heave to to leeward, aa the schooner roes to leeward and the ahip to windward, and I should have increaaed my diitanca. Q.?State whether you could not have obtained a more favorable position by (hooting ahead of the Vincennes, and going to windward of her t A?1 could have obtained a mora favorable position, ami executed the order in less time. Q.?What sail was the schooner tinder whea you was ordsreri to heave too ? A.?Gib and foresail, the mainsail was disabled. The Juoqk Advocate read a letter from Lieutenant Wilkes to Lieutenant Pinkney, dated 24th September, 1839, in connection with the 4th specification of the let charge of " Additional Charges." (This letter was introduced on the triad oi Lieutenant Pinkney, and published in the Herald.) The Ji-doe Advocate then read the following letter, at the request of Mr. Hamilton, ia order that it might be placed on the record of the court. "U. 8. Smr VirccxisxES, } " Callao, June 22, 1839. > " Sib " The Flying Fish, under vour command, will be reported ready for sea this evening. " Respectfully yours,\ "CHARLES WILKES, " Com. Exploring Expedition. " Lieutenant R. F. Pixxbet, " U. S. Schooner Fly ing Fish." The Judoe Advocate then read, in connection with the 4th specification, a letter from Lieutenant Wilkes to Lieutenant Pinkney, dated Septamber 24, 1839, declining to be bound by uuy other than written communications. Jcdoe Advocate.? State if you made an application at Apia for a boatswain's mate, and what was the conversation between Lieutenant Wilkes and yourself J A.?On the 4th November, 1839, I called on Lieutenant Wilkes, in obedience to an order he had sent me the evening previous. On entering his cabin ho reprimanded me for not having reported the arrival of the schooner to hiin. After thia, he (old me 1 waa to go to sea that momning, and enquired of me what I wanted. 1 gave him a requisition, and a call for a survey and some bread. 1 then told him I wanted five men, I had one in confinement, and lite other four were sick, and that I would be glad if he would give me a boatswain's mate. He told me 1 must get volunteers to supply the deficiency of the crew, and that he didnt think a boatswain's mate was necessary. I told him it was sometimes necessary to punish the men, and that I then had a man in irons for retusing to punish ano'her. He told me he had none to give me, but I might rate one ol the crew. I told him there was not a suitable person on board, but I had a man on board the Peacock who had once been in the schooner, and was anxious to return to her, and that I thought he would makeagood boatswain's mate. I asked him if I should get him ; he said he didnt know, he would see about it, and gave me no satisfactory answer. This was about the man, and not the rate. The man I alluded to on board the Peacock came on board that day, and 1 offered him the rate. This he declined, and sold that the duty was disagreeable, and he would rather re turn mi3 situation ne nan. tvnen I arrived at Sydney, 1 applied to Lieutenant Wilkes, for an addition of two men to my crew, one of whom I Mated wai to be rated boatswain's mate. Lieutenant Wilkes, when, I called on him a day or two after, at Fort McQuarrie, told me he had ieceivtd my letter, and ,aaked ne why I asked for the exchange of some men mentioned in tne letter, and why I asked for an addition to the crew 1 explained my reasons to him, and he said he had no more men to give me. I told him I wished to rate one of the seamen as boatswain's mate. He then asked me some Questions about Parker; he said I muM rate him, that he had none to give me. TheJtmoK Advocate then read a letter from Lieutenant Wilkes to Lieutenant Pinkney, dated " Bay of Islands, April 6, 1910," refusing to allow him to rate a boatswain, which was published on Lieutenant Pinkney's trial. In connection with the fifth specification, the Judge Advocate read three letters from Lientenant Wilkes to Lieutenant Pinkney, all dated April 6, 19-10, refusing to pay several charges for repairs to the Flying Fish, Icc., "not deemed necessary," and " articles procured without requisitions," which were published on Lieutenant Pinkney's trial. The Jodge Advocate next produced the account of James R. Clendea, U. S. Consul, dated Bay of Islands, New Zealand, April 6, 1940, for repairs done to the Flying Fish, provisions, firewood, be furnished by order of Lieut. R. F. Pinkney, amounting to $603,36, the largest item charged being for caulking, which was about $90. Of this account Lieut. Wilkes allowed $10.9 3, which was expended for provisions and firewood, but r< fused to allow the remainder of the bill, amounting to $490 33; Lieut. Johusun was therefore obliged to pay this balance from his own Jocket, which he did, and the receipt of Purser R. R. Walron for the amount, was also read by the Judge Advocate. Ji-doe Advocate.?State if tome of those articles charged in that account, and paid by you, were not used by other vessels of the squadron. A.?Yes, half a barrel of pitch I sent to the Porpoise, and it w-as used by her. Qaestioned by the Coubt?Was Lieut. Wilkes at the Bay of Islands at the time of making these repairs? if not, where was he, and was the schooner fit for sea without them? A.?Lieut. Wilkes was not there. I arrived at the Bay of Islands on the 10th of March; Lieut. Wilkes came in from Sydney about the 23d. The repairs were made before he arrived, and the schooner would not have been fit for sea without them. She had been on a southern cruise to the Antarctic circle. Judge Advocate.?State what you know of the first specification of the third charge. A?I sent that renort to Lieut. Wilkeaat Mataval Bay, between the 16th, the date of the report, and the ?th o! Urceraocr, 1S8V. The Judge Advocate here read a letter from Lieut. Wilkes dated at Honolulu, Oct. 00, 1840, to the Secretary of the Nary, in which he mention* the transmission of the charge* against him by Lieut. Pinkney and A*ai*tant Surgeon Ouillou. The Jrnoa Advocate read a letter from Lieut. Wilke* to Lieut. Pinkney, dated 18th April, 1940, impending him from the command of the Flying Fish, in consequence of di*ra*pectful communication* to him. Jt due Adtocate.?State what you know of the third pacification ofthi*charge. A.?1 wa* iuipendod on the 19th of April, 1940, and remained on board the Flying Ki?h until the time the Peacock joined the ?ou?dron at Tongatahoo. I went on board the Peacock on the 3d .May, On the lith of May I wa* on *hore at Labtika. in company with Lieut. Underwood. While engaged In bathing, an order wa* delivered to me by Mr. Blair from Lieut. Wilke*, directing me to goon board the (hip immediately. I did *o. The next morning I *ent a latter to Lieut.

I *aw Mt> Wilke* approaching from my left; he pa*?ed near me, and I didn't speak to nim I remained in confinement, and wa* not permitted to go on ?hore until Dr. Palmer went to Lieut. Hudion. Wnen I got to the Ssndwlch Island* I was permitted to go on ?hore and live. Thi* wa* about the 3d of October. I had twice been permitted to go on ?hore at the Fejee i?land*. after Dr. Palmer had *een Mr Hndion. I wa* in confinement from the Hth of May to the 3d of October, with the?e two exception*. I was confined to the ve**el, not to a stateroom. Part of that time w* were at ?ea. During that limn we hail a pan*age of about filty days to the Sandwich Island*. Cr?it-n?m>n*d by Mr. HaMiltok, through the Judge Advocate Q? Did you not leave the squadron in the month of September, 19*9, and come to the United State* in the ahip Lausanne 7 A.?I came to the United State* In the thip Lausanne, and left Honolnlu, 3d December, 1840. I arrived la the U nltad State* la April, 1841. y.

Q?Look at the paper writing now shown you : is it not in your handwriting 1 Did vou not in this writing, dated August 5, 1*40, ask permission to go on shore 7 A.?This is my handwriting. I made the request to go on shore at the instance of Dr. Palmer, and it was granted.

At the time I firat made the application it wai not in view of any particular ervice ; when 1 made the second application at Sydney, I contemplated being separated from the Vincennes on the Southern cruise. The evidence was read over to the witness, and the Court adjourned till Wednesday morning 10 o'clock. From Central America.?The brig Francis, Captain Roberts, has arrived in thirty days from R io Salada, in Central America. We learn from tain Roberts, that the port of San Juan was blockaded, on the 8th of July, by the British sloop of war Hector, in conseauence ol alleged insults offered to certain British subjects, as wellaathe imprisonment of several British residents. Captain Roberts was off that place on the 10th of July, and tried to enter the harbor, but was prevented by the sloop of war. The blockadersdemand #200,000 as an indemnity for the wrongs received, when, in fact, the place cannot muster two hundred thousand cents Capt. Roberts thinks the only compensation they could obtain, would be the loss of their crew, as it was rather sickly. The brig America, hence for San Juan, was off the port, but could not enter, in consequence of the blockade. Latest from Mexico.?The schooners Ringgold and Emblem, arrived at New Orleans August 12th, with $19,000 in specie, and the following items of news from Matamoras :? Matamoras, July 11,1842. By an express, we learn that 400 Texians have been defeated in their camp at Lipantillan, by the combined torces of Colonels Antonio Canel and Cayetano Montero. The usurpers left in the power of our troops, two stand of colors of infantry, n cavalry flag, twenty-two dead bodies, and a quantity , of arms and ammunition. On one of the standards was painted the words?"Galveston Invincibles;" yet those invincibles fled at the first charge of our troops, composed of a militia regiment, and a de- i tachment of the 4th infantry of the line. Important from Florida. Cedar Keys, August 12.?General Worth writes t thust "I have now to report the thorough pacification ] of this Territory. Holacta Emathlacnee (Bowlegs) accompanied by two noted sub-chiefs, representing the Southern Indians, met at Tamna on thp 5th in stant, and, in their behalf, gladly accepted the con cession reported in my despatch on the 24th ultimo.

Many have already signified a wish 1 to be sent to their friends in the West; Tiger-Tail particularly, is urgent to go immediately, but I have 1 represented the importance to himself to take a re- \ spectable band with hint." , The Demand for the Body of J ok Smith.?We } can hardly believe the truth oi the story contained i in the following account oi this affair from a St. ' F.ouis paper. It says, that since the electidti, Gov. ( Carlin has resolved to comply with the requisition < of the Governor of Missouri, and deliver up Joe , Smith and A. P.Rockwell. The Sheriff of Han- i cock county, sleeted at the rece^election, being a , Mormon, the writ was placed in\ie hands of the ] Sheriff of Adams county. The Sheriff repaired to ( Nauvoo and arrested Smith and Rockwell, when a i habeas cor/m$ was issued by some of the Nauvoo nu- I thorities, and the prisoners taken out of the Sh'-r- 1 ift'e custody and released. The Sheriff had just r-- 1 turned to Quincy and reported the fact. Our inform- 1 ant sayst that it was currently reported, while he 1 was writing, th.t Gov. Carlin was then in the act of ; issuing orders calling nut the military, to enforce the arrest, and it was expected they would taaich on the day following for Nauvoo. Our correspondent, however, expresses the confident belief that wh>'n the troops reach the city, Joe and his colleague will be among the missing.

The boat leaves the old prison wharf, foot of Amoastreet, near j Isaac B. Smith's popular hotel. Assest or Oesmak Jews.?Three German Jews, named < Abraham Ounst, Jacob Gunst, and Mortz Silver, were arrested yesterday by Odicers Sweet and Frame, in the store of Bowen and McNamee, while in the act of stealing I two pieces of lace, valued at $30. They had entered the 1 store, as they stated, for the purpose of purchasing goods, when one o'f them was detected with a piece in his hat ' and another with a piece under his coat. They entered < no plea of defence under examination, but stated that they I could not understand th>> English language. Silver con- 1 fessed that he had been in this eity two years, which w as ' long enough to learn ; and, while at the store, they rp- < peered to he able not only to understand all that was said < to them in English, but replied in the same language. I Roaaino a Fellow-Lodoer.?Two men, named James J Bryant and Daniel Rioe, were committed yesterday on a charge of robbing Charlea Howell, who lodged in the same room with them, of 17 sovereigns. A portion of them were found on their persons when arrested. Bailed Oct.?Catherine Bearner, alias Kate Moore, the ( most expert passer of counterfeit money in the country, | was released from the Tombs, on bail, on Monday, t>y the Recorder. The surety demanded w as $600, and the per- , son who was accepted is said to be named Finch. We i shall ascertain particulars te-day, and presume that the | whole proceeding is O. K. Joseph Leutz, the German, who was committed a few days since, on a charge of com- d mitting a rape on the person of a girl named lienrielta t Gancy, in January last, was also admitted to bail, by the Recorder, in the sum of $-J60. The charge should never have (been entertained, as Adolphus Mincho, Levi Heine, and Israel Hallenstein, all testify that the character of the ' girl was very bad previous to the time ol the allegud t charge. Si'ude!* Decease?Mr. James Brower, of 99 Clark street, of rather intemperate habits, retired to rest on Mon- i day night at the usual hour, and on the return of his wife, r about one o'clock at night, from a neighbor's, where she had been on a visit, she found him dead in his bed. The coroner held an inquest, and a post mortem examination was made by Dr. E. F. Ring, but the jury returned a ver- ] diet of "death from congestion of the brain, produced by ( causes unknown to the jurors." It was ascertained that he had taken three cents wortb of laudanum the eveuing f previous to his death, but as he was in the habit of using { the drug, it is not supposed that that was the direct cause , of death, although it may have hastened his end.

(CorrMiKWilfoc* of the Herald.I Washington, Monday, 3 P. M. of a Tariff?Kt plosion. The House are in a fair way to pass the vetoed tariff bill, without distribution. It was reported to the House, and the report of the committee concurred in, yeas 102, noes JW. The question was then taken on engrossment, and lost by a] tie vote?the speaker going in the negative. Mr. Thompson of Indiana moved a reconsideration, which was carried. The Senate has been engaged all the session upon matters of much interest to individuals, bnt of no public importance?such as pensions, private claims, and the question of an appropriation for a lighthouse on the Mississippi! There are a couple of treaties, one with Texas, and another with ons of the Indian tribes, and about forty nominations still before the Senate; but the legislative business is nearly brought to a close. It seems to be generally understood that the following Senators voted against the treaty:?Messrs. Buchanan and Sturgeon, of Pennsylvania ; Messrs. Benton and Linn, of Missouri; Messrs. Allen and Tappan, of Ohio; Mr. Bagby, of Alabama; Mr. Conrad, of I,ouisiana; Mr. Smith, of Indiana; Mr. McKoberts, of Illinois; Mr. Wilcox, of New Hampshire, were absent. Twenty-five whigs and fourteen democrats voted for the treaty. Washington, Monday Evening. Passage of the Tariff through the HouseProstration of the Whigs. The tariff bill has finally passed the House. The most intense excitement prevailed in the House during the passage through the several stages to the consummation. Many of the Distribution men yielded at last, and several from New-York and Pennsylvania voted for the bill. The Speaker, Mr. White, behaved like a man of nerve throughout ? Twice he defeated the bill by his single vote, taking the responsibility without doubt or hesitation ; but it was saved by changes of the Whigs. On the final passage, the vote stood, ayes 105?noes 102. Its fate i is extremely doubtful in the Senate. The shuffling and indecision of the Western and Southern whigs was most discreditable to them? they have been driven from the ground which they assumed with so much parade and ostentation? they have shrunk from responsibility, after boasting of their independence and their determination to resist the President to the last extremity, and on their own showing, surrendered every thing to what they call executive dictation. The policy of the party is abandoned, and not a vestige is now left of the mea sures of the extra session, but the bankrupt law.? The clamorous oppsition of a portion of the whigs, their insolent ^denunciation of the President, and the ease with which they were driven from their position and principles will form matter for instruc uve uiaiiicnt iiereaner. Baltimore. [Correspondence of the Herald. J Baltimore, Augustas, 1849. Mr. Editor :? At the meeting of the Democratic Convention lait evening, the following gentlemen were nominated aa canlidatee to represent Baltimore in the house of Delogatcs, viz: John J. Graves, Francis Gallagher, Wm. M. Star, Carroll Spence and David C. Springer. The Whigs have not yet brought out their team. Now, since the tariff bill amended has again passed the douse, the anxiety to know its fate in the Senate and with ;he President, that prevails here is indiscribable -, to-day will probably relieve their anxieties. At a dance gotten up by a number of Germans on the i'oiut, a few nights since, there was a terrible row and ight. Several o? the party were taken to tho police ofice for safe keeping. An attempt at robbery and murder was made on Saturlay night last, by some nefarious villain, who entered the eiectory establishment under the Republican oltice. On leing detected, he drew a loaded pistol and snapped it at the proprietor. It fortunately flashed in the pan, and he nade his escape.

Last night while the steamboat Hudson was on her way iown the river, from the excursion to Burlington, when ihout five miles belo* Bristol, the lever broke and made (rest havoc among the machinery.
