NEW YORK HERALD '? ?* York, Kil lrty, Meptruibil' 14, I*4'4. Thj VlUMttt'l Protest ? A t? rutxl kt?p I Ainrrlran Affair*. The protest of the President haacrc tied a tremeu don* sensation. So it ought. It is one <>t (lie most brilliant, powerful, intellectual, p iil"> >; lnc il pai>erthi; ever cam - from the Executive It is conceive,I in I he very spirit ol the age, and will command tun versal attention. Til- President is the grand representative ol the thoughts, feelings, purposes, morals, and powers ol th" American people. T/ie ide i that the House ol H 'pre.sentativcs is to erf'iee the constituted rigln. and duties of the threat Representative, is contrary to a!! philosophy, and all morals?all history, and all religion. Tin1 only safety of the Republic is in the iron heart of the Executive. Of late years the H . ! of Representatives has been a disgrace to th country?a blot U|?on the nation. All 3uch bodies become m>. It h ts represented only the unprincipled money aristocracy?that class of society who hive, through the bank, and the local .legislature.-, d-'-iroyc 1 a 1 principle,fmorals, religion, credit, an I everything else. The House of Representatives ha b -en like a bank directory, who plundered the stockholders and cheated '! the depositors. The protest has been received with execration by the aristocrat and li :anci?rs. So it ought, for it tramples them in the iliit. On th" contrary, the democracy are in exstacies with its sentiments and its force. Soil ought, also. i'he Government of this mighty Republic?tin intellectual democracy?is gradually acquiring it na'ur.d form. A Republic, according to all the experience of pa -t ages, is a mere collection of cabals, | until the chief magistrate becomes a des|>oi according to law?an emperor in intellect?an autocrat in thought?a son oi the Sua an i Moon in everything. Tile history of China at this day?the history of Rome under the Emperors?the history of France under Napoltoo?only bodies forth an approximation to the (iovernmeiit of the United States when it shall have attained all the vigor given to the executive under the Constitution. The President has mor power than any of the Kings of Europe?and why should h not! Have not the people more power! a:id is he not their Grand Representative'? China is a mere military despotism? Rome was trie sniie under her Emperors?France was the same under Napoleon?but the United States alone is gradually developing the right form of democratic governm-nt?an intellectual disposition?the incumbent elected every four years by a majority of tli* people. No matter whether the name of the President hereafter may be Tyler, Clay, Calhoun, or Van Bur?n?the action of the government will be the sune The representatives in Congress, like the trustees or managers of a corporation, are corrupt, rotten, intriguing, wasteful, and irresponsible Tne only representative?or chief?or emperor, or a t.ocrat, who can be singly and personally responsible to the people, and carry outtlieir purposes, is the Vrnmflpnt Hdving now completely demolished all the corrupt factions of Congress, and given a sublimity to the Executive office, it may be supposed that the President will purify all the subordinate departments of government under his control. In pursuance j thereof, it may be expected that, in due course of I time, all th * collectors, surveyors, postmasters, mar- j shall* and other officers placed in office by his pre- i rh ceasor, may be removed from office. The adven- } irons spirit of the uge, points to such a rigorous J movement?and the writings of the corrupt aristocracy seem to require it Nothing can save the country, purify its morals, or elpvate its patriotism, bui an iron des|?otistn iu the Executive, conducted on the principles of true philosophy, according to the spirit of the age, and in strict conformity to the Constituiion and laws This is the natural and philosophical tendency of the present state of parties? an.1 nothing can prevent its ultimate success. It ithe only policy that can save the Republic from in tesm commotion?civil war?disunion?the awful j corta,-lions erf the banks?tlte plunderings of tin ' financiers?and give U3 peace, prosperity, and a strong, healthy and philosophical government?such as an intellectuul and moral democracy can sto. macli. We must submit to destiny. Amen. Xkxt Presidency.?Mr. Clay is going to coin rnence his stump speeches ut Indianapolis early ' n xt month. Why should he not 1 Mr. Cidhoun is busy?Mr. Van Buren is busy ; and they are uli busy about the same kind of work. They have two years before them, and they had better go right at it at once and fight it out. Cabmen and Hackmbn?We request the Mayor to see that proper and efficient officers attend the steamboats on their arrival and departure. A fewdays since an old clergyman was severely beaten bruised by a brute of a cabman because he would not submit to the extortion of the latter, when he was going by the Albany boat with with his wife and daughter. Steam Shit Caledonia started from Liverpool ou tii" 19th ol Augu?t, and has, therefore, been thirteen days at sea. Her news will probably be here to-morrow. Ocean Steamers.?The &tean? shtp Bangor, Capt. Dunn, which left Boston a short time ago lor Gibraltar, put into Halifax on the 23d ult., in conse alienee o: one of her boilvrs having got out of order. Finding it difficult to get necessary repairs made Un-re, she started the next morning for Pictou. Naval.?U. S. brig Consort, Lieut. Downes, lat-ly u-e-d us a receiving vessel at Portland, arrived at Boston last Tuesday, to be laid up. Commodore Hull declines the appointment of the command of the ship afloat in Boston Harbor ? Commodore Downes will probably receive the appmutnu irt. Commodore Morris has been ordered to proceed front the Brazils to the Mediterranean, to assume the command on that station. The Columbus, seventy-four, went to sea from Boston last Monday afternoon. Besides her officers, her crew consists of?petty officers, 63; seame. ,250; ordinary seamen, 165 ; landsmen, 128 ; I t class boys,4?; apprentices, 58; marines, 62 The Columbus nas generally been called a poor sailer ; from some alteration in her trim, or other cause, no such fault appeared on Monday ; she went to sea in fine style. Tiif.vtricala?The Scarlet Dragon.?The Park is making wonderful strides in prosperity, at the low prices. Ev ry night this week has been capital? and to-night will be all over scarlet. Lord Ashburton and mite?Lord John Hay, and the officers of the Warapite?Commodore Perry and the American naval officers on this station, will all visit the Park to-night. It will be a tearing occasion. We should not wonder it the roof of the Park were to dy orf in very exultation. Cotne, let us die of pure ,ny?Y< cheap now?only 75 cents a soul, iacluding brandy and water. Mpnical, Jcc.?Baron de Fleur has hern riven concerts at Cincinnati.

Abbey Kelly i< holding forth at Rochester. Tit": Great Clam Bake the other day in Rhode I in I, went off with immense eclat. There were Iw.iKK) people present. Rhode Island Elections?The Charter party .pear to have carried the recent elections all their own way. Mirtial Law in Rhode Island has been sus pended for an indefinite period. The March n Onward ?Two new cash pcnnj papers have mat been started in^Halifax, N. S.j the .Morning Nears aui Morning Chronicle, j The HoapltailUM of the City to Lord A?hburton. Tm. DaV.?Veaterday, the verv elements seemed to take part in doing honor to the man whom all the'city seemsdelighted to honor at this particular period. The sun rose in clear, unclouded majesty, the day was beautifully fine, with delightful fresh t.ree/es blowing, rendering the day one of the most J lovely that has ever come out of the heaveii9, even ia the month of September, so famous for fine days. Lord Ashburton, who is very regular and temperate in his habits, and withal an early riser, was up this morning even earlier than usual, and was engaged at his rscrotoirr before breakfast, reading and answering letters ; after which, he sipped his coffee, read the Herald, ate a mouthful, looked out of the window, and then sat down and meditated. The Scene at the City Ham. ?Between II and 12 o'clock, two of the Aldermen waited on Lord v.-muunon, ana escorted mm to me vrovernor s Boom in tli<- City Hall, where a large crowd waa in ttiendance to ate and shake hands. His Lordship walked exceedingly erect and stately; and as he removed his hat, his hair, perfectly white, streaming in the wind, gave him a patriarchal appearance. He was received in the Governor's Room by his Honor the >1 tyor, who addressed him in a very I hrii f sjieeeh, simply welcoming him most cordially to the hospitalities of the city, and thanking him in .lie name of the citizens generally for the benefits conf-rred on them by the lute treaty which he was instrumental in procuring To all this his Lordship replied in a very few words, very much to the purpose, but in so low u tone that he could not be heard j hx feet from where he btood. This part of the ceremony being over, the Mayor then introduced the citizens to him by name, just as they came along, each shaking hands, and stopping to have a chat with hnn. In this way about 25(>0 people were presented to him, and shook him by tn?* hand, the British Consul, James Buchanan, L?i , being in ar! tendance on his Lordship the whole time, and assisting in the ceremonies of the dav. The " sovereigns" were highly delighted to shake the hand ' f a live lord, and have a chance to speak their minds to him, and concluded that he was "a prettv food sort of a fellow after all, and not so very proud !" After 25J0 had shaken his Lordship by the hand, he began to feel rather tired, and the time being up, lie was escorted back to the Astor House, much pleased with the morning's scene on several accounts, because he had been in the hands of a clique and seen nobody before. On reaching his rooms at that magnificent hotel, he lay down for nn hour or two, in order to renovate himself to en counter the ceremonies anil Ungues incidental to the dinner. Tub Room?Nothing could exceed the beauty and exquisite taste with which tie* room was decorated. Nothing gaudy, nothing showy. All was in most exquisite keeping 'rhcre were three continuous lines of drapery, red, blue and white, down the cornice of the sides of the room which dropped in festoons down over the upper part of each window. At the upper end of the room, behind the Chairnun, there were three _ most beautiful and simply gorgeous canopies of pink, blue and white satin drapery. Over, or rather on the top of the centre canopy, immediately behind the Chairman were these words, inscribed on broad white bands, in gold letters:? T11E TREATY Great Britain, of Uniteh States, Washington, Asiibi'rton. 1812 Webster. The upper part of these conopies were festooned with wreaths of beautiful flowers, and the flowers were also entwined around the columns between the canopies; nothing could exceed the chaste beauty of the latter. M ignificent candelahras holding colored wax lights each were placed on lite columns ; and between the upper part of each canopy were placed V.?...ll U ..ra nl'll... dlu i*j .....I ft,., klnn.l (toss. Three magnificent golden chandeliers with fifteen colored wax lights each, hung down the centre of the room, with a long festoon of rose9 stretch iugthe whole length of the room and drooping be t ween the chandeliers. There are seven windows?n each side of the room, mid on each side of each window there was a golden candelatra.with five colored w ix lights in each. At the room the orchestra for a fine German hand was placed. The front of this was covered with pink, white, a d blue satin drapery arranged in tri angles, and ornamented with lestoons oi flowers. Immediately over the orchestra and facing the chairman, the drapery was thus arranged:? 2 c rr Z 2 SPi* a u c ? -3 v SP -p V .8 3 ? o " o-* ? se = ?= || ?o| g?| 5 4 g'i ?3* tow EM ? J. J $4 In various parts of the table were seperb China vases filled with the choicest dahlias, roses and other flowers. A grand centre called a Bastion,curiou ly mad* by James Stetson, was placed in front of the Chairman. In the front of it was a portrait of Prince Aloeit, and underneath these words:? THE TREATY. Great Britain, United States, Asiiburto N W E H8TE R AND Washington. When wc add to this that there were about fifty baskets of the choicest fruits of all kinds on a table in the centre, and the most magnificent arrangement of confectionary and luxurious wines, it wlil give but a faint idea ol the splendor, gorgeousuess, and desirableness of this grand banquet. At half-past six about two hundred ladies, many beautiful, some homely, and all well dressed, were let in to sec the room The waiters were admirably drilled, nnd about seven the company entered. A|l below the bend in the table at the head look their seats promiscuously. Those at the head of the table sat thus:? Hon. P. A. JAY, The Mayor Lord Aihburton Dr. Pott* Dr. Wainw right Hon. George Evans, U. 8. Hon. Mr. Mills, Com'r.Mass. Senate Mr. Grattan Mr Buchanan, British Con- Col. Bankhead til Hon. Mr. Palmer Lord John Hay Mr. Gordon, 1st Lieutenant Commodore Perry of the Warspite Hon. Mr. Mildmay Lieut. Kinsman, Warspite Lieut. Di*on, Warspite Mr Bruce Mr. Sru-dding Lieut. Jacobs, Warspite Dr. Johnson, Warspite Mr. Hone. Mr. Hopkins, Warspite Mr. Oris wold Vici-Pkisidkisti, Moses H. Grinnell J. D. P. OgMen. These were all guests. Among others we saw C. W. Lawrence, General Talltnadge. Arc. Arc, The bond struck up II til Columbia, as Lord Ashburton leaned on the arm of P. M. Wetmore. As as the band ceased, Dr Wainwright said grace, all sat down, and the party tell to as if they hadn't had anything to eat lor a week. They seemed, as Sam Weller said, to eat in very desperation ; and some of them, at least, seemed determined to have the amount 01 tiicir tyiu in soiuetning ; and the way the champagne corks flew, before a mouthful to eat was touched, was a caution to landlords and liotelkeeners. Tlie band played during the whole time occupied by the eating of the dinner, which was the longest dinner hour we ever remember to have seen.or heard or read of. It really seemed as if some of the 810 gentlemen never would have dont?or that they COHld not get enough. How they did eat, particularly the committee. However, after an hourand i half of hard eating, they did contrive to get through. About 9 o'clock the first toast was given by Mr. Jay, in a very bungling manner. '/V President of the United States The band played the President's march. No cheer?no sensations, but all preserved an insulting silence?some sneered?some jeered?some pgg eil?and all drank " The President of the United Stairs'' seated. Mr Jay then gave "The Queen of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and In land." But strange to say,although Anieiic.itis drank their President in -ilcuce, they drank the Queen of Great Britain with three cheers. Mr Jay then gave "Our gtfst Lord Ashburton. happiness and honor to him who lias contributed to preserve peace between two Great Nations " The nusic stntck up " The Fine Old English Gentleman." I.ord Ashucrto* then rose and said:? Gentlemen, in eturning thanki for the honor you have ju?t iloae me, I tpprehend that I will not he regarded at departing from ho rules of ordinary custom of person* in my fitnation. in xprrxsing my uttar inability to ex urea* the feeling* with which I am overpowered I feel that the enthtiaia*tic reeption ? hich yoti have been pleased to give to the toast put drank, lis* been elicited rather hy the sentiment* vhich a romi>anied it, than the name of the individual ? ho h t? ha t th> good tortnne to be associated with it on hi?ocra*ion. I can a**nre you, gentlemen, that never lid I experience more difficulty to express in a few words IIr deep feeling, than on this occasion. Never have I been so forcibly impressed with the importance of the jreat subject with which my name ha* for sometime i i*t been *o fortunately connected. Having, a* many of mi must be well aware, from the intimate connection tibsi?'ing lietween Britith andAmerican commerce,passed he early period of my liie in active commercial ir?ni'?, I ha I hoped to have la-en enabled to pas* my de: ting days in that peaceful quiet to which a life of Indust , -> well entitled. (I.otta cheen.) But, nevertheless, i h u there w a* presented to me the opportunity of aiding i in the achievement of thai which had long been the sin- j cere* dew re of my heart- the cementing together of these two great countries?and I can hardly call them two, for their denizens are oiiu people, though they inhabit different continents. (Cheers.) When that opportunity ottered I could not for a moment hesitate. In these circumstances I visited your shores, in order to comluct the negociution* w hich have so happily terminated, and which nave on this evening received y our enthusiastic approval. (I.uitd cheers.) Gentlemen, 1 cannot hut regard it a* some- i what singular and auspicious that the respectable gentle- man who presides at tins hospitable board should happen to he the immediate descendant of a man whose name will livo in your memories so long as honor, patriotism, and virtue are venerated?I mean the late Mr Jay. (Applause.) That illustrious man stepped forw ard on an occasion somewhat similar to that w hich you now celebrate, and having visited England, happily succeeded in his errand of peace although made under circumstances of a far more difficult nature than those which surrounded me on a mission which has had a like fortunate termination The tn?k imposed on Mr. Jay, was indeed an arduous one. At that period wild passions were at work, and the voice of the messenger of peace could only with difficulty be heard. But amid all those trying circumstances that great man, uiid those who supported him, did maintain the independence of this oouutry, anil saved both nations from a most serious war at that time, whilst war was raging amongst the nations of the earth ; and, undoubtedly, he laid the foundations of the great commercial prosperity of America. (Great applause.) Fortunately, gentlemen, 1 have hud much less difficult)- to encounter'; for when 1 add to the reception I met with at Washington from the President?from his Cabinet?Irom the Senate and House of >ho ?nl-aiui ...kl-k : 1 Hi Bunion?that cradle of American liberty and independ- | ence?and ulw> the reception with which I have been greeted here, us well in your City Hall?where I have been told that I shook hands with upward* of three thousand |H-rsons, collected there by one common impulse? as at this festive board, around which I see such a large number of your most respectuble citizens, I naturally ask, where is the danger of war between England ami Ami" rise' (Great applause.) Whatever may be hidden, I do not pretend tO'Scan ; but, ol a verity I can say that 1 have seen nothing but the greatest and most unail'ectej cordiality, and goodwill and friendship. Still, although my mission has been made in peculiarly happy circumstances, yet I trust that I will not be chargeable with vanity in saving that " I too have done the state some service."? (Loud and long cantiuued cheering, in which the voice of Major Jack Downing was heard vociferating "bravo! bravo!") Looking on this country, and observing every where the same vigor of intellect, and the same generosity of feeling with which I had the honor to be acquainted many years ago, I cannot bring myself to believe that such a people and my countrymen can ever be brought to make war upon each other. Yet it has, I must confess, afforded me the greatest possible gratification to r< fleet that 1 have been the h imble instrument of aiding in the settlement of those questions which formed the subject of the late negociations. liut it were great injustice on my part to assuino, on this occasion, any peculiar merit to myself. 1 urn latuud to state, and I do it with sincere pleasure, that I have, as 1 before remarked, met with nothing on the part of the authorities of your country hut the samo earnest feeling of good, will, and the same desire for honorable peace with which 1 have myself been animated. And more especially as it is my duty?as it is my pleasure?to oiler my humbie tribute of admiration and acknowledgement to that great man?great in every sense of the word he undauntedly is?your present Secretary of State. (Applause.) A gentleman distinguished, as you all know, by the highest description of talent. My only regret is, that from accidental circumstances, lie is prevented attending on the present occasion, which I regret the more because if he were present, his eloquence would do appropriate honor to this occasion. (Cheers ) Gentlemen, 1 have now only to express the high gratification I experience this evening, and that 1 shall ever retain the most grstelul recollection of your kindness. It is a common saying of persons, as fur advanced in years us myself, that the rt cuiit'l'iiou ui ine events oj me eariy aays 01 tneir lives were most dearly cherished, hilt amongst nil the memories which I shall carry to the gi ave, none will lie superior to those connected with that last act of m$- life which (nought me here, and which has so successfully terminated. (Loud aud lung continued cheering.) When Lord Ashburton put down he was loudly cheered, particularly hy Major Jack Downing. Mr. Jay then gave Daniel Webster?Specially representing the United States in the Treaty of Washington, he has nobly fulfilled the trust. The following letter wus then read by some one, it is immaterial hy whom. Washington, Aug. 27, 1S42. GF.NTLIMEN 1? I have the honor to acknowledge the receipt of your letter of the 26th instant, inviting me to a public dinner,to t>" given in New York on the first of September to Lord Ashburton, in token of respect for his character and of congratulation upon the successlul termination of his Mission of Peace. Although it is my intention to go North within a few days, for tile purpose of health and recreation, > et it will not be in my power to leave this city in time to be in NewYork on the first of September. I pray you to believe me, gentlemen, that none entertains more cordial sentiments of respect than myself, towards the distinguished person who is to be your guest on theoccasion. I have the honor to be, Respectfully, Your obedient servant, DANIEL WEBSTER. Mk. Evans, of Maine, then rose and said ;?I regret, for many reasons, that our distinguished country man, to whom you have paid the meed of approbation so richly ' merited, is not present to thank you in his own expressive 1 eloquence forthe kindness you nave here manifested, and 1 n>i iii?- siaiiiivmiuii j uu nuve expressed in me r suit ol .1 i I important negotiation in which ho has no largely purtici- i paled. (Cheers.) As no other person is present who lia< been so near an observer of the progress of these negotiations as myself, allow me to thank you in the name-01 that great statesman, lor the favors you have bestowed upon his labors, which have been so successfully terminated, 'l'he public situation which I so unworthily fill, lias made me a near witness of the arduous and laborious duties of that great man, in bringing to a happy conclusion all subjects of difficulty between the two great nations. I am restricted, Sir, from speaking minutely of the correspondence which preceded the termination of this important negotiation. But I may add, without any breach of trust, that whenever the world shall be treated to a perusal of all the documents connected with this matter, that no American will lind a Mush on his cheek w hen those important and able state papers which have emanated from that man's pen, shall tie read to the civilized nations on earth. (Loud cheers.) And sure I am, on the other hand, that there is no man in this land, who loves his country, who regards the duty which lie owes to Ood and his fellow men, but will fuel prouder of the land which gave him birth, at the manifestations of gigantic intellect, and noble patriotism which will then be seen in the documents to which I refe". (Tremendous cheers.) You must be aware, sir, thai it was a most arduous labor to undergo?that it was no flight matter to cojie with the clear, discerning, sagaciotis, experienced intellec of the distinguished nobleman to whom, with a far seeing sagacity, the British government had confided the important interests she nad at stake. (Cheers.) But, sir, in addition to all else, the American Statesman had a Domestic Treaty to negotiate with some of our own states. (Cheers.) And altnough he was then occupying what was a new station for him, yet the country had had before such proofs of his stupendous talent and" patriotism, that they felt they could relyon his honor and judgment for the protection of our dearest rights, and the result has justified their trust. (Cheers.) They did repose implicit confidence in the power and skill which he brought to hear on these important topics, and tho whole country ap- i plauds him for the result. (Oreat cheering.) Weal! hail the prospects and blessings of a permanent peace, and consequently a prosperous and increased commerce. We all hail the removalof those vexatious causes, which might at any moment have precipitated t wo powerful natiens into a war?nations whose interests are so bound together? (cheers)?In every quarter of the globe?under every sky these two nations have interests in common. (Cheers.) (low desirable then was it to remove the causes of quarrel ?(loud cheers.) The meteor flag of England is not seen ] upon any sea where the American insign is not seen to float triumphantly by its side. (Cheers.) Herocean warriors cannot move in any part of the globe without meeting with the gallant defenders of our own flag (young though our navy is,) who are as renowned fortheir years, | and ns ready to hare their bosoms in defence of the honor and liberties of their country, as the brave defenders of I any other land. (Trcm-ndons cheers.) With two such j nations, then, how desirable Is it, that every source of difficulty, should be removed without delay?never , never, to return ! (Loud cheers.) These two great nations should move on,advancing in literature,in science,in agri- ' culture, in the arts,in all the peaceful and god-like occupa- ' tlonsthat benefit the human r.icc.and make them more near- < ly approximatethe natureoftheirDivineCreator, until the remotest period of time. (Load cheers ) In these things only should they go on conquering anil to conquer.? ' (Cheers.) For have we not a common interest? (Cheers.) ' Are we not a common family I (Loud cheers.) And wher- ' cverthe English language is spoken, take my word for it, I there the American iungiiage is sjioken also. (Loud cheers t and laughter.) Our distinguished fellow citizen, w hom it { is your pleasure to remember on this occasion.has borne up | nobly the honors you have confided to him ia his arduous task. And he feels as proud ol the burden, as you do of the glorious manner in which he has sustained it. (Tre- j menilous cheers.) But I have done. This is an occasion ' for us all to congratulate ourselves through all time, inas- 1 much as the peace of t wo gre it nations nas been main- 1 tsi.iCd, compatible with the honor and the integrity of each, (fi.'cat cheers.) In the negotiation of this treaty, 1 there has been a franknes an op. nncss, a degree of talent ai I rinmrity and on ran mi ilssln ta witila all difficulties without dissimilation, displayed on both sides, which, it ' seems, beyond a doubt, has laid the foundation lor a long, ! a lasting and glorious peace between the two countries.

J The remainder of the proceedings of the evening ( we Ho not give, lor the sufficient reason that the ( committee and steward#treated the representatives , ot the newspapers who were present with such gross indignity, that the reporters rose at this stage of the proceedi ngs, and left the room in a body.

An imperial edict has lately arrived relieving Yihshan from the task of rebuilding the Bogue forts, and recalling all the troojis, belonging to other provinces, from Canton. Advices from Chusan are to the 2f>th of April. Fine weather and the southerly monsoon had set i in, and a large force would soon, therefore, concentrate at Chusan. < [From the Csaton PrfiiJJli)' 14.J ] The U. S. ship Constellation, 36, bearing the broad 1 pennant of Commodore Kearney, left Macao Roads nn the ll'h ult. for Whampoa, where she anchored r>n the 13th. The corvet'e Boston, IS, left for Ma- ( Dilla on tlie 1st, and will, we understand, join the i Constellation on her return. We are happy to learn that the officers and crews of both these vessels are i in excellent health, and have been t3 since they left the United States in Iter. 1844) We hear that a boat of the American frigate Constellation, when sounding in Salt .lunk River, was warned otl i?y the l innet hy Home blank shots, which not being taken notice of, the Chinese fired at the boat with gfnpe, which fell hut little short of her. Commodore Kearney, we are told, has demanded satisfaction for this insult to the American Hag, and it is said the Chines.- have made the most ample apology for the mistake ; and the Ty-tuck 01 Chinese Admiral of the station, has |?iid a visit to the American Commodore at Whampoa* (From the Canton Register, April 26.] We presume Commodore Kearney will demand of the provincial government of Canton, an apology and reparation for the cruel injuries inflicted on Mr. Miller, when in the United States ship Morrison's boat in May last, and for the seizure and ill treatment of Mr Edwards, the supercargo of the United Statesship Hannibal, and boat's crew on the 17th of November last. Reports from Amoy say that the city of Ningpo lias been burnt to tl-e ground by the English troops ; fired hy shells ; and the rumor of the fall of Hongehowloo, the provincial capital of Chekeang, gains ground ; if it is true, we suppose the British troops approached the city by the Chekeang river. This is the greatest blow yet struck against the Chinese empire ; and if the British forces do not reach Peking this year, we confidently expect possession will be taken of the great canal hy the Yangtszekeang, of Nanking, the ancient capital of (he Ming dynasty, of Keangning, the capital of the (irovince ol Keangnan, and of Fuchnwfoo, the provincial capital of Fokien : the most flourishing districts of the empire will then be under our control, while the supplies of grain and sysee silver will be cut off from the northern provinces and the emperor's treasury. iFrom the Canton Prcs?, April JO.] eal ot rain has fallen here during the week, and if the same at Hongkong, we fear it will have caused n temporary interruption to the building, which it is now, we are told, earned on with great spirit, both by Europeans and Chinese. We lenrn that the fame of the new freeport is fast spreading over the Eastcoast, and from a gentleman ,??,i r 1 ,u?. 1 t-.. kien merchants had told him that they intended visiting Hongkong with cargoes of Tea. There is a report brought by n vessel lately arrived from Amoy, that accounts had been received thereof the destruction of Ningpoo previous to its i evacuation by the British forces. This report re- i juires, however, confirmation. i The Chinese seem at length to have achieved a 1 treat improvement in naval architecture. Two fritates have lately been launched, and are now at 1 mchor near Howrjua's folly. These vet?els are 1 milt after European models, and are said to look 1 veil enough, with theexception of theiretern,which ' loes not look shipshape ta nautical eyes They have ' wo decks, and are pierced for 9 guns of a side, and aiTV iron 18 and 32 pounder carronads on the main , ind brass guns on the upper deck. Below the gunp i lolcs are pierced through the sides for 60 sweeps , iside, so that euch vessel may be impelled by 110 < owers. The fortifications on the river between Canton and Whampoa are, apparently, completed, and the auiiorities are now arming them; the troops are con- 1 -tantly engaged in practicing both with large and I -mall arms. No fortifications are building below < Whampoa. On the 12th instant, at a visit on Wang- < tong. it was found wholly deserted, not a human be- I ing was on the island. The sites of all the old forts i at the Rogue seems to be viewed with horror both ' by soldiers and people, and this feeling will not die i way if, at short intervals, the steamers or the small vi<sselsof war run up to the first bar or even higher. | The visit of the Ariadne steamer to Whampoa on < the 14th,caused no inconsiderable anxiety among the authorities in the provincial city One of the nong i merchants has lately presented his government i with a schooner built at Canton according to the i European model, by native workmen, which is i highly praised for her symmetry by competent judges. , She carries 22 guns, is coppered inside as well as i outside, and has canvass sales. There are other i vessels of war also building.?Chintte Rejwtitory. [From the Canton Register, May 9-] The Anglona has arrived from Amoy bringing letters to tne 12th instant. We find the Hesostris learner took a detachment of the garrison of Kolongsoo to Ningpo to nid in the intended at- j taek on the city of Hangchowfoo The force on the island being so reduced, the Chinese> threaten wattack, and bodies of men are collecting. !^o in ell grounded sre the expectations, that the ladies and heavy baggage hav<* been sent on board the ships in the otfing. The Pyladrs has sailed to , Ntimoa, the Chinese threatening to destroy the , opium vessels lying there. Trnde at Amoy was | very dull, and prices nnremnnerating for the risk. , The Chinese are making prepuretions to aitack ' Hongkong.The force is variously estimated at ten I to fifteen thousand men; and is to be composed ' of the elite of the Tartar troo|w in the neighboring provinces. The Chines- under the command ot a high Tartar general, hav been considerably reinforced, have rallied, reoccupied Tsekee, and threaten another attack on Niugpo. The expenditure on the fortifications of the Canton river, fiave been defrayed liy the British, seeing that the legal duties have during the last twelve moths, been so greatly augmented. It is certain on tea alone to the extent of six millions of dollars has been disbursed i. e. to the amount ot the Canton ransom!!! .[From U?e Pekiut; Olirltt.] Flu* imperial will has been received an follows :? lo llunghc and others, have sent up a document memorializing in relation to their having sunk a barbarian ship, (supposed the Nerbudda) seized barbarians and captured their great guns. * * When Yeu Chinking with his own hand had tired off the gun, he forthwith beheld the rousts ol the barburian ship split and her ropes part, and on her retreating out ol the port she was dashed against the rocks ant) broke to pieces, and a vast many of the luirKoriunc fullirtfr intr flio urutai- iirim?>?aa * iiiiiiiriiPT liuiliurrs were drowned.

An examination caused him to demand security in the sum of $1,000 for his appearance ; and while there, another charge was preferred against him of similar character ; and to cap the climax, before he left the office, a deputy sheriff stepped in with a writ which was served upon hint. The respectable gentleman whose name was presented as security, should look well before lie leaps. Harrott was remanded to prison, and will not be released by the Recorder, unless good and responsible security is offered in both cases The Regatta at Newburgh will be given in full to-morrow.

From some he raised #20, others #80, #40, fee., and they were so engaged indoing nothing out and indoors, that hut few knew or supposed that the others who were lounging about were engaged in the same capacity as themselves. Having succeeded in obtaining several hundred dollars by this means he decamped, on Tuesday, and left all hands minus, not only the money they had advanced as surety for their honesty, but forgot, as a matter of course, to pay either ol them one cent of their promised salary He has beaten Harratt all out and out, nnd it is hoped that some one of bis dupes may cntch him in Texas or some other place.

BY THE SOUTHERN MAIL. Washington. [CorrripondFiice of the Herald.] Washington, Wednesday, 3 P. M. Kml of the Session?Bnalneas of Congress. Congress has finally adjourned. This " irksome and inglorious session" has finally come loan end. The adjounimcnt took place at two o'clock, the hour prescribed, with as much order and decorum, and more good nature, than usually characterizes the termination of a protracted session. The Senate \v;?a engaged most of the morning in executive session. Mr. Clinton, who was re-nominated as Collector of Buffalo, was rejected, and Mr Lathrop nominated in his place and confirmed. In the House, Mr. Wise moved to amend the lournal, so as to insert the " Protest" of the President; but the motion was ruled to be out of order There was great difficulty about obtaining a quorum, and a vast deal of noise and confusion, but 127 members finally answered to their names. The post route bill was passed, the amendment of the Senate being concurred in. The resolutions reelecting Colt's submarine battery were passed. The fortification bill, the bill authorising a depot for charts, &c., for the navy; the hill fixing [lie compensation of engineers in the navy- the bill fixing the rank of Professors in the navy; tlie bill authorising a drawback on goods exported in the original packages, between Santa Fe and Chihuabar, all were passed. The last hill was returned from the Senate amended, and laid on the table. une ot tne most sensiDie, practical, and valuable speeches of the session was that delivered in ihe House yesterday l>y Mr. T. B. King,on the hill lor reorganizing the Navy Department. He took a large and liberal view of the necessities and usefulness of the Navy, dwelt with much eloquence and force upon the wasteful expenditures that had characterised the administration of the department during preceding years, and pointed out the mode by which this might be avoided hereafter. Although so near the close of the session, the speech was exceedingly well received, and produced much efiect. No man in Congress has paid more attention to the Navv than Mr. King, and no man is better acquainted w ith its condition and wants. He would have been placed at the head of the department by General Harrison, but for the malign influence ol a few profess ed friends; and but for political considerations, it is probable that the same post would have been tendered hint on the formation of the Oabinet nearly a year since. Mr King came into Congress young, but with 11 high reputation in the State of Georgia A sound mind, and habits of industry and patient research. have made him one of the most useful members ol the House. His services have been most important, both in the Naval Committee and in the Mouse, ami it is owing, in no small degree, to his exertions, that all the important naval bills have been carried triumphantly through. Mr. Wise, as chairman of the Naval Committee, hns been very ejlicient, but his political relations have precluded him from the exercise of his just and proper influence. Baltimore. rCormtKindeuceof th?? Herald.) Baltimore, Sept. 1,1842 Grand Serenatlc. Mk. Editor :? On Tuesday night last one of the most imposing serenades, probably ever heard within the thirteen original States, including some of the territories, a portion of Kainskatka, the Oulf ot Mexico, the coast of Africa, the islands of the Pacific, and Mineral Point, out west, not excepted, was given in this city of monuments and pretty girls, by a celebrated musical cor/*, distinguished for their "Cattail Band." As with the army of Xerxes, the band was followed by numerous spectators, eager tocatch each note as it fell in sweet cadence upon the listening ear. The axure dome of heaven was spangled with ten millions of stars, and the pale queen of night rolled up the blue vault, shedding her mellow light on dome, and spire, and column, and lainp|Kist, as the party went forth amid the first born ot melting inefodv, to sooth, by harmonious blending*, the midnight slumbers of angel woman.
