The Auhburton Vcallval?-A gru*t Indlgnli) to the President null ! ?? Aiurrlfts pro" pie. The testival given to Lord Astaburtoii, by the " merchant princes," as (hey call themselves, is now past and gone The revelries are closed, the head aches better, and all the events of the glorious night arc before the American people. On these events v have reflected, with all the responsibilities of a man*-a Chris:ian?an immortal being who has his mission to perform in the tide ot time on enrth, uud a faithful return of his acts to make to the recording ansr-1, in the golden mansion ?t" eternity. With these views and these feelings, we have r fleeted 011 the principal events of that festive night, and ire now unhesitatingly, boldly, fearlessly, characterise that festival as a grass, outrageous, annum! , Ieasily and brutal INSULT to the whole America 11 People, per pel rated upon the name und station of t 1 American Chief Magistrate. In this just and general denunciation we except Lord Ashburton and his suite, Lord John Hay and the invited guests, including also Column and Stetson, and all tk?'ir waiters,servants und cooks. This gross national outrage was perpetrated by the managers, the stewards, and the ten-dollar subscribers?some ot whom have just taken the benefit of til.- bankrupt law, und others had to borrow the ten dollars to pty for their tickets?and all generally composed of what is called the aristocracy of Wall street?the elite of society in New York?the " merchant princes," as yiey were termed by one of themselves 011 that very night. These arrogant, overbearing, insolent, domineering men, or ami jorify of them, sneered und ridiculed at the toatt given to the President of the United States, whi!e they cheered that given to tile Q, teen of England On a great occasion, such as that festival, it was proper and decorous to exhibit a mark of respect to her M yesty of England; but the way in which it was coupled with a studied, systemsi'c and insolent contempt towards the Chief Magistrate of the American people, under who;e presidency anil uu-pices the treaty was concluded, we can characterise as nothing else but u piece ot the grossest outrage th it ever was perpetruted in any country, claiming to be civilized or christianized. Li the perpetration of this outrage, or sitting eilently,and quietly acquiescing in the act, we find two reverend clergyman, among them the Ilev. Dr. Potts, a pious minister of the Gospel of Chri't Jesus Preserved Fish, an old and respectable citizen, had the manliness to leave that insolent festive board, while John Lorimer Graham, the Post mas ter of this city, and several other officers of government, whose names we shall give, had the want of spirit to sit still and acquiesce in the gtors insult to the President of the American people. In addition to this gross, audacious, unprecedented, dcspicaolc outrage upon the American people, v have to add tit it a similar insult was perpetrated by the managers and the stewards upon the representatives of the newspaper press. The particulars of the insult will be found in another column. The character of this ffte, and of the men who got it up, now stands revealed to the whole country. The block brand of infamy is upon its faceits back?and all its lineaments. It was a studied and deliberate purpose from the beginning to the end. The dinner was got up bv a clique of impudent aristocrats?of ignorant, arrogant men?who assume to control the free thoughts of the American people, and claim to be the(Utr of all socidy?the ari. ocrary of the whole nation?the " merchant ' princes" of this glorious land of liberty and equn- ( li'.V?of generosity and gentlemanly sentiment.? ( It was a studied attempt to strip the venerable chief magistrate of this great Republic of the fan-< , and glory he justly deserves for the management of the treaty. As Lord Ashburton is head and chief . of the rnonied aristocracy of England, and possesses great influence in making loans and discounting ' bills, it is probable that the hopes and fears of these financiers and " inerchunt princes" may have caused , : his line o| conduct to be taken. Bui whatever be the motives of such men?or .heir hopes hereafter on London 'Change, their J conduct on th it night was the most beastly anil | brutal that ever yet disgraced any community claiming to be decent, gentlemanly or respectable. As such wr hand it down for the execration ofall future time. Lord Ashburton'a Lost Dny In America?Dr. pnrturr of the Wareplte, Lord Ashburion leaves the United States to day for England, carrying with him the best wishes of all who know hini: and the esteem of evety rightminded man in the country. He goes on board the Warspite at 11 o'clock, ami that beautiful vessel | suils at 12 o'clock or Port.-mouth, in England. Cod ble-s the gallant bark and the gallant freight she carries. N'o English vessel ot war was ever so we come to our shores, and she is one of the very few of them whose departure we regret. Lord Ashburton'a movements yesterday were very limited. He rose at seven, breakfasted nt eight; was occupied in wri ing and receiving calls till 2 P. M., when he dressed; and at three rode out with his Honor the Mavor, followed by the Corpo ration, to see the public institutions of the city. The jaunt closed at Black well's Island, where an < legutit dinner w is provided, lo which our hungry aldermen did ample justice. He then took tea with the Mayor nt his own house; and about 9 reached thePark Theatre, in company with Lord John Hay, the officers ol the \V .u-pite, and all the officers of the U. P. Navy now in port. As they entered, the hand struck up "Rule Britannia," merged into "God save the Queen," and ended with "Yankee Doodle." The house rose and gave "Three Cheers for the Treaty " Lord Aahburton bowed, lie was dressed in a plain dark frock coat and white pants and vest They all sat the p!av out, laughing heartily at the capital acting of Burton, Brown, Billy Williams, AWhot, Placide,Mrs. Abbot and Miss Ayres. Thej adjourned to the Astor House ahont 11, and finished the day with a capital supper. PcBUCATfOH OF THE BRITISH TREATY BEFORE Ratifications are EXCHANGED.?We understand that the copies of the British Tnaty and rorrepondence, published first in a certain paper, was stolen from the files of the United States rv-nati, with the connivance of a United States Senator, sworn to secrecy, till the injunction was removed [t was then sent to New York and published, foi the purpose of deprecating the President and Mr Webster. We learn further, thit the whole transaction will soon he brought to light. RockawaY ?This delicious watering place, i* now in higher feather, than it has been at anyperio 1 this season Go and see Tiik Condl'ct of tiik AsHrtunroN Dinner Co.mvuriKK to the I'rkss.?At the dinner given to Lord Asliburion on Thursday, the gentlemen who were present as representatives ot the press on that occa! siuii, deemed it due, out of respect, to the various papers which they then and there represented, to leave the room in a body, at a certain stage of the evening, immediately after they had done reporting the speech of Mr. Evans, of Maine. As this was, or ought to have been a great public and liberal occasion, it isdue to the public that they ehould be made acquainted with the facts that caused this conduct on the part of the reporters. The only explanation that lias yei been given of this matter we find in the following :? The representatives of the press present, were treateJ by the Committee of Arrangements with a lack of courtesy, not in Weeping with the occasion, or the circumstances under which they attended?Ceurt'er and En quirir. The gentlemen who represented the Press having twten placed by order of the Committee at the inconvenient side table, and treated rather as mtruders than otherwise, thought it due to themselves to mark such conduct by rel-orum; no more than was absolutely necessary to coine tiefore the public, and therefore all felt the room a* soon as Mr. Evans hud doue (peaking.?Journal of Commeret. The Committee teemed to have disposed matters in an orderly manner, though on a scale, in many respects, of I narrow and contemptible illiberality, which would hate done infinite credit to an unusually sordid keep#' of a shilling reflectory We publish the speeches of l.ord Ashburton and Mr. Evans, lor their in irinsic worth and tucir interest to the putdic. We omit the others, which were men ly in fulfilment of the arrangements of the Committee, from a fttling of tt>J retpect ? TribuneThe remainder of the proceeding* ot the eveuing we do no: give, for the sufficient reason that the committee of arrangements and stewards treated the lepresentatire* of the newspapers, w ho were present, with such ^ross in. dignity that they rose in a body and left?Morning Pool. At the close of Mr. Evans's address, the gentlemen connected with the press who were to report the proceeding* left en masse,for the reason that the Committeeof Stewards had not provided them with thu accommodations thrv deemed necessary and proper, or decorous.? F.xprttt. These are all the reasons, as yet that have reached the public eye; and probably lliey are all that ever would have appeared had not Mr James Brooks of the Express, after he had been insulted in the persons ot his reporters, who were present, and who deemed it due to their own self-respect to leave the rooms meanly sneaked into the room irom behind u pillar, where he had been playing "peeping Tom of Coventry," during the evening,lent himself to do the dirty-work of the Committee, and then published the following contemptible paragraph by way of a miserable apology:? The reasons the Reporters give, we should not hav e ft It to be sufficient reasons, if we had been in their places?and it was hardly a proper excuse, or one becoining the dig nit i/ due their own rcuponsible ana nigruy nonoraoie siriuirions.?noooy nruons. What notions of honor or self-respect Mr. Brooks may have, or what he may deem " sufficient redsons" for resenting an insult, few people know, and no one cares But whether the representatives of the pre-sacted as became the dignity due "their outt responsible and highly honorable station" this republican community can readily judge, by reading the following plain facts of the case. As soon as it was known that the treaty was concluded, the press qfthis city were the fir.-t to propose a great public festival to Lord Ashburton, and Mr Webster, in which the officers of the French, American and English navies here, should be included a9guest?. They demanded that the affair should be given on a broad and liberal scale, without distinction of party, or set, or cliques, or sects of any kind. It was a national occasion, and it was due to the honor of the city and country that the matter should be done on a liberal national scale. Now, mark what followed. Lord Ashburton's time was limited. He could attend but one public dinner in this city, and he un fortunately fell into the hands of a purse-proud, selfstyled aristocratic clique, who miserably marred the whole affair from beginning to end. They first, un reiurn lor nio iioeraiiiy snowu mem at tne Morpeth dinner,) insulted all the respectable foreign merchants here, by declaring that no foreigner , should be on the Committee, even on such an orca- i iion?a dinner given to the representative of a fo- J reign power. They next determined to make the thing very aristocratic and exclusive, by declaring t that they would allow but 200, and these must be of the flite ol the city?the self-styled " merchant princes"?to be present on the occasion ; and to ensure this result they placed the tickets at $10 each, and would only sell them to certain favored individuals of their own clique. They next insulted Lord John Hay, and the officers of the Warspite, who brought Lord Asbburtoa to litis country, by not inviting them until the very morning of the dinner, (Thursday) and afterwards had the coarse brutality to try to make up for this gross neglect by offering Lord John Hay at many tickctt as he wanted for his 'riends, on the true dollar and cent principle?and it was singular that he was not offered a hundred diares of some bubble stocks, by way of making up for the neglect and insult. And that there may be no mistake about this matter, we here give the names of this celebrated committee, furnished by one ol the members thereof:? Committee or Arrarokmerts. J as. D- P- Ogden, Wm. B. Aitor, Jas. Q. King Benj. L. Swan, Proiper M. Wetmore, George Oruwold, 1 Stephen Whitney, .times Lee, ' Cornelius \V. Lawrence, Robt. B. Minturn, ' Theodore Sedgwick. I Stewards. ' Llnvid C. Colder). Isaac Townsend. Oeorge W. Blunt, Saml. Ward, ' John D. Van Buren, Win. H Asplnwall, j Mortimer Livingston. i The next, and (with the exception of their insult 1 to the President) the crowning act of folly, on the I part of this committee, was their conduct to the press. In common with the proprietors of the Cour icr, Journal of Commerce, Tribune, Sun, and Morn- I ing Post, we applied 10 the committee for tickets for , our reiHirters, in order to gratify the public who were i-xcluaed from the dinner with the full details of it, it the same nine tendering Km price of the tickets 1 not choosing to be under any obligation. In reply ] :o this, we were given to understand that the rvprejentatives alike of the press and the public would not need tickets?that they would be admitted as a inatterof course asguests?and in accordance with [his our reporters were furnished with the following note, as was no doubt all the other reporters:? 31st Acccst, 1843.

I i : i i i I W lien the reporter- fip?t reached the room at five 1 o'clo? k, th??y were told that they should have p'Rees I itherin it line .it the head table opposite the guests i (a* the rule is at the great public dinner* in Europe), I or thiit they should have seats at the h-ad of thr 1 cntre table ; and subsequently seats were placed 1 here and the names ot each gentleman placed on a lrd opposite his sent in the same way astue other .nvited guests When the hour of dinner arrived, to their n'.teT as t.ini?-hmenf they found this plan altered, and a little rtv round table plated as above at A , with a white table cloth spread over it; the representatives efthe press and the public to si*, at; thus isolating them from the rest ol the company (of any ana all of whom they were the ?quals, and of many the supeJiors,) and marking them out as a body in their representative capacity unworthy a seat with the rest of those present?a stigma in itself sufficient cause for the gentlemen of the press to have left the room without reporting aline, unless the arrangement had been of their own selecting. To this insult was added another by order ol t committee. No plates or knives and forks were placed on the table cloth at the rej>orlcr's table, no napkins, decanters, or glasses, nor any preparations made for them to partake of dinner when the other lien-ons took theirs. And as a crowning insult to the press, and the great public they were there to represent, they were told by one of the committee when the dinner was two thirds over, "not to he fastidious, but watt patiently and when the other gentlemen had finished their dinner,they would see that the press got something to eat also." At the same time a few glasses,a decanter ofMadeira, one of Hock,and a bottle of Champagne, were placed on the table. These were ordered ofl" by the gentlemen of the press, nana certmonic, and on holding a consultation, tliey determined that, although they owed it to th?*ir sell-respect to leave the room immediately, yet as they represented ths public in that room, and that public depended on them for what was said by Lord a summon ana mr. w easier s represeniamr, m? two parties to the treaty, that they would smother their feelings, and stay to report that nolileinun and Mr Evans, the United States Senator Iroin Maine, who appeared for Mr. Webster. They did so; they reported those gentlemen fully auJ faithfully ; Ums done, they considered that they had sucrifioed their feelings, their self-respect, and what was due to the newspapers they represented, as far as tiieir duty to the public or that public could require them to do so, and they then left the room in a body ! leaving the self-sufficient gentlemen of the committee to report their own speeches. These are the facts of the matter in issue, between the press and the Ashburton Committee; and the public who demand that the press should be present on all these great public occas'ons, as their representatives, will not be slow in coming to a just decision between the two parties. For ourselves, we.are bound to say, that it was one of the most disgraceful things ever enacted in a free, enlightened, republican country. It was n gross insult equally to the press und the public ; and an outrage for which the Committee will find it dif- , (icult to atone. As to the reporters of the Courier, Journal of Commerce, Herald, Tribune, Sun, Ex- , press and Morning Post, they did perfectly right, and showed far more good sense, self-respect, and gen- . tlemanly breeding, than the Committee can ever hope to possess. And we rejoict to find that there 1 was only one poor miserable creature found mean enough to swallow the indignity, by doing that ( which his reporters could not do without disgrace ; and which none but a degraded, sneaking wretch ( would ever stoop to do?we mean James Brooks, , of the New-York Express. 1 The Anhburton LMimer. I We give below the speeches of Lord John Hay j and the British Consul on this occasion:? ' Moses H. Grinnell, Esq., gave? [ Lord John Hay?Commander of Her Majesty's | ship Warspite. Welcome for himself?welcome for I ihe messenger he brought. Lord John Hay rose and was loudlv cheered. 1 He said, I need not say that I am unused to public , speaking. It is not our profession. 1 cannot, however, let a sentiment so kindly rendered, piss without expressing my grateful acknowledgment. 1 can only say, that as a British oflicor, one of the most ( pleasant services I ever was ordered upon, was to bring the messenger iust spoken of here. 1 deem it a high honor, one of the highest niv sovereign could have given me, as all has now turned out. (Cheers.) We hdd no sooner touched the shores of this great 1 continent than the thu^Arid clouds that had uhstruc- ' ted the union of tie futlK began to disperse, and the bright sun to peer throbgh them all.

As this good feeling is ! going on and increasing, we may as well put back, and tor ever, our swords into our scabbards for we shall have no occasion to use them.

Upon the health of Mr. Bichana*, Her Majesty's 1 Consul lor this port being given? He said how much he felt honored on litis ocea- , sion, but that he should have been less embarrassed if it hud taken place before the eloquent speech 1 front his worthy colleague, Mr. Grattan ; but leaving that consideration, he would advert to the re ' murkable coincidence of circumstances which now presented itself, viz: That the venerated lather of ' their worthy Chairman, early in this month just (>0 1 years ago, shou'd have been the proposer of the ' Peace between England and this country; (cheers ;) j und that this day the son shot Id preside at the banpict in honor of' the completion of it?for until the J irtnl we celebrate, peace was not completed, lie -ontinued Allow me to observe, that many truly i important events have arisen under the reigns of Queens in Plngland. Need I speak of what Ann ind Elizabeth effected by warriors and statesmen whose lame fills all history. I might also advert to , lie battle of Waterloo, to which the peace of Ettope has been attributed?but I hesitate not to fute, that the peace of the world is more effectually , iccured by the great event we celebrate, than all Ise besides. And what renders it so endearing to 1 is all, is, that Old England produced th<- one, a ad ' Sew England the other adjuster of the long agitated piestion. (Great cheers.) Yes, Sir, mother and laughter may well be proud of two such, and may ' hey long live to preserve the peace of the world. [Cheers.) Sire, Allow me to conclude with an obtervation, viz That after the brilliant speeches you [ lave heard, I have felt embarrassed ; but aware that here are many capital speech makers present,(I paricularly allude to the gentlemen of the press,) I rev >cctfully entreat them to strike out of my speech, ill they deem irrelevant, and to add such observaiions as I should have introduced ; and then I shall ?o forth as a capital speaker.

Chatham Thkaihk ?Since the re-opening of the Chatham, it has been doing even a better business than before. Crowded houses have nightly greeted the representations of Mr. Forrest and Miss Josephine Clifton; and to night, for the fin-t time in many years, the drama of the Broker of Bogota is to be performed, in which Mr. Forrest, J. R. Scott, and Miss Clifton are cast, The farce of the Turnpike Gate will conclude the evening, in which Mrs. Thorne, will enact her favorite character of Peggy The Grand Whig " Ovation," as it was called, took place in our city yesterday, and as it neither rained nor anew, the elements appeared to have co disposition to disturb the ceremony. Placards were posted all over the city, announcing the great, grand affair, and some wag of a printer circulated some hundred handbills conveying the intelligence that President Tyler was to arrive at the Battery at five o'clock, which drew many thousands there who would never have taken the trouble to walk down otherwise. Pieces of urtillery were stationed on the outside of Castle Garden, which were tired in 6olnnn minute gun style, and answered trom Jersey city and Hoboken. The steamboat Fairfield having been chartered for that purpose, left the city at 11 o'clock in the morning for Elizabethtown, where the members of Congress were in waiting, and at about five in the evening she returned, bringing the cargo all sate with right sides up. On her bow was n Hag with the words "Henry Clay;" midships another with " Representatives ol the People," and at the quarter a third with " Protection to American labor " She came to at Pier No. 1 East River, and after considerable delay, unci more ceremony, preparations were made to land. An attempt was then made to get up a cheer, but it proved a failure, and sounded like an effort of a man or party that had failed of strength. The grand, imposing and magnificent procession then formed, four by four, und moved forward with all the solemnity of an imposing funeral procession, accompanied as it was with the roar of the minute guns in the distance. As they proceeded up the street towards Bowling Green, barouches were in readiness to receive the following Senators and Members of Congress who were present:? Senators.?Phelts, of Vermont: Bates, of Massachusetts; N. P. Talimadge, of New York; Porter,

of Michigan; Morehead, ol Kentucky. Members of the House.?Allen, of Maine; Saltonstull, of Massachusetts; Hudson, of do; Burneld, of do; Cranston, of R. I.; T. Smith, of Connecticut; W. W. Boardman, of do; M. Fillmore, of N. Y-; Blair, of do; Tomlinson, of do; Foster, of do: Birdseye, of do; Chiids, of do: Linn, of do; Halstead, of New Jersey; Randolph, of ao ; Mathiot, of Ohio; Underwood, of Kentucky; M. Brown, of Tennessse; Carruthers, of do; R. W. Thompson, of Indiana ; Stanley, of N. C.; und J. B. King, of Georgia, andM. St. Clair Clarke, exclerk of the House. John Quincy Adam? was not present, and hundreds were on the qui vivc to get a sight of Clay,who iliey had been tola was to be among the party. As the members entered the barouches,one of Governor Reward's notaries, who was placed astride a $30 horse, oft' hat and endeavored to raise a huxza, but it was so faint, so lacking pf all enthusiasm, that an edd fish alongside of us cried out "why what's the matter, who's sick 1" Another answered, "there's nobody sick, but I understand that one of the memDers of Congress died very suddenly on the way cere, and hisbody is now on board of the boat!"? The anxious inquirer sucked it all down and ascribed the lack of enthusiasm to that cause alone. The august and majestic body now moved forward again, headed off by some fifty or sixty horse urn. touu; ul oyiiuIII irilllllUt'U 114 OI 1JOI1 C|UlXOtte> steed and bearing, as he rode forward to demolish the windmills that nearly demolished him. Then came a band of music playing " Odear, what can the matter be, is nobody corning to see 1" Then n carriage or two, with three or four of the abovenamed members?one with Stone of the Ccmmercial?a one-horse wagon with one whole man in it ?another with Ketchum, the lawyer?three carts? two Jersey dearborns?a furniture wagon?then a few more narouches, in one of which we saw Horace Greeley and somebody else : and thus closed this great, this extraordinary exhibition of Whig seal, which has taken week* to gel up, even to thirsero height. Not a man was found Democratic enough to walk in the procession, and it is a wonlerthat the band themselves were not placed on Horseback. On the steamboat Fairfield leaving in the morning they passed the ship North Carolina, in the dream, and the committee on board gave three cheare, but Capt. Gregory very properly refused to icknowledge the compliments of any political purly, particularly a branch of one who has assembled to offer indignities to the President of the United States, for performing wha the honestly believed to ue his duty. After parading through several of the by streets, tnd a part of Droadway only, the members were landed at the Astor House, and at about half-past tight o'clock they nppeared at th- Tabernacle, which was well filled with spectators. LhrctjKY Scelijen was introduced to the assemblage or the purpose of addressing the members of Conrress on behalf of the assemblage and Whigs of New York, lie said that the members had done their duty while in Congress, and nothing but their duty? hat they had been embarrassed?that the veto pow r had been inactive for thirty veafs. until recently. "xcept in cases of mistake or unintentional error ?tliat it must be extracted from the constitution, or <o controled as to be inoperative, or it Mould jo impossible for the representatives of the reople to vvithstand executive power?that the ivhigs were ready to rush into any conflict than see his power so exercised as it had been by John Tyer. He pushed up with a long tirade of abuse of he President, and an avoM-al that the whigs m-ith Ifenry Clay Mere determined to light the next poli:ical campaign with the measures of a Government [tank and a distribution of the Public landsas the [M'o main principles. Mr. Fillmore one of the tepresentatives for this ^tate was next introduced. He commenced with a detail of the sufferings of the whig members from xecutive vetoes and the press of the country, and followed up m'itha complaint to the more than Roman virtue of himself and associates in resisting the seductive prospects of office that might have been held out to them if they had supported ine President. That but six members had been seduced as yet out of the whole body of whigs, and he believed that no more would be led away. He then occupied half an hour in a detail of the passage of the tariff bill and concluded by introducing the name of Henry Clay,which was received with applause. On bringing his remarks to a close, and in referring to one of ihe members from Tennessee, who was present from the county in which the Hermitage is situated, lnsaid that he was a good whig and from the same neighborhood as the old Hero of New Orleans. (One or two cheers and innumerable hisses, folloM-ed this mention of one of the defenders of the country.) James T. Morehead, Senator from Kentucky, was then introduced, and after relating the scenes of the session, stated that the whigs had lost every measure in the victory of 1&40, and that they mnst contend in 1&44 lor the same principles as before. That the democrats m-ere divided since the passage .f.L..?tiTLfii i- i r. "i mr larin um, una uiai ir me wnigs only took care of themselves, they would conquer again. He returned thanks for the compliments passed on Henry Ciay, and said he should tell the whigs of Kentucky that New-York was all right. enwakn Stanley, member from North Carolina, was then presented to the meeting, and after expressing what he ctlled his contempt for the President, Mated that the whig members had assembled together in caucus, at the early part of the session, to concoct measures?that they had done so because they were told in holy writ, that whenever two or three were assembled together in the name of the Lord, lie would be in their midst. (Tliiblasphenions expression met. a9 it deserved, the hisses of half the audience, which were loud and continued for several seconds.) He then attempted to explain that he did not mean any i rre vera nee by such remark, but that he believed that his all powerful arm was outstretched to aid those who opposed lorofocos and traitors wherever they were assembled. He then pissed onto his usual abuse of the President, in which he was classified as a chance man?and that he was elected merely because he was supposed to be a friend of Henry Clay.
