r A *. XKW YORK HEllALD. *ork. Kr|?|?jr. September 9, 184!*. Phe 4(lik?rlm uimirr-Morr Apoloyle*. The "Journal ot Commerce" comes out with ?n article containing more apologies and explanationof the conduct of the committee on the Aahburton Dinn -r, winch in some respects wis the matter in a new point ol view; but which, as an apology, is one ol the most remarkable and extraordinary we ever saw, and as such we give it. Tie \?MBCHToa Oisskr. ? Notwithstan ling the explana'.i >.i? a inch tuve htten ma le in regard to the accident at tu \ -inurton dinner, bv which the toast to the 1 resi.ieiit Ol the United State* wasdrunkin silence, w hile that I > the Uu-eu ol ICngiand ?.1* responded with three cheer*, tlu : ? in i* numerous papers which insist that the explanan i i >11 is not satisfactory, and that there must have been a premeditate I le*igu to maiilt the nation in the peraon of it* President. One paper deli re* a lint of the names el' those i ho were present at the dinner, that all true American* mm " lino? ?nd mark them." We have before expre*se I our belief, founded upon evidence which is to us entireh - iti-i ictory, that so far from the occurrence havinir in- n premeditated by the committee of arraugement*. none more deeply regretted it than themselves, and to ie i " i* it more unexpected. Some members of the .1 stated thi* faot, suhstantiall y, under theii N or do we suppose that* the audience wer -' u.i jI any more in fault than the committee, i l'i 11 i'>!> every man present, except the editor ol the \ i : i 'in, would have been ready to cheer " the Presi' it thi' United States," if the signal had been given ? lor . mght fairly be questioned whether 'he cheei s would ?ve ' d ng 1 to the present incumbent, and not rather to tie ' e itself, as representing the sovereignty of the it - lion A i l further, it U not likely that any con?ider?hli' I pnrtiou of th- company were to crazy with politic*, a* to ri'fu- i i ordinary token of civility to President Tyler, in th presence of foreigners and the representatives of a iu ignl'ourt. It tak's some time to pet up steam on such an o i iMon, and the toast to the President being the first one r:v en, it had the worst chance. We think euough has been said uliout this little affair, tilth by ourselves and others. If, however, anymore indigo r ion is to be poured out, it may us well be directed against those persons and presses which maintain that the course charged was justifiable, and not against the committee an 1 others who openly condemned that course. According to this, part of the committee, through this journal, admit that their conduct was grossly wrong, but endeavor to mend the matter by saying that it was accidental. Well, take this view of the case, upon their own showing, and what does it amount tw I It shows that these men are utterly ignorant of the manners of gentlemen ; it shows iiiat 'hey are utterly ignorant of customs of respeeiable society ; it shows that they are utterly ignorant of every thing necessary to be done on such an occasion as the late dinner. They are accidental gentlemen?possessed of accidental manners, and accidental principles. Yet these are the men who cull themselves " merchant ptinaes"?who arrogate to themselves the possession of all the respectability, goorl breedin?, knowledge, practice, habits, and manners of gentlemen, that can be found in the city ; and upon the strength of this impudent assumption, claim to be the exclusive leaders of" good society." At the same time they acted with a brutality, an ignorance, and presumption, ihat never was parallelled ; giving as ih? sole reason for their disgraceful conduct, that it was purely " accidental." This apology is the very worst that has yet been given ; and at the same time it does not cover the ground?the great point in issue. This is merely an explanation?and a sorry one?of their conduct in connection with the toast. But what have the committee to say of the song! What apology or explanation do they intend to put forth on this point ! What does Stephen Whitney say to that song What opinion has Cornelius W. Lawrence of the sentiments in that song ? How long would James Lee like to see (ireat Britain act as " Queen of the Sea !" Does William H. Astor endorse the | chorus of that song ! Would George Griswold desire to see the assertions in that song put into full force on the high seas ? How could Benjamin L. Swan sit pati-ntly and sing the sentiments in that song ? Did not Robert B. Minturn's better judgment tell him that the introduction of that song at that dinner was a great national insult I Probably James G. King, from his habits and associations, might have felt perfectly satisfied with the song ; but how could James Depeyster Ogdeo, President of the Chamber of Commerce, assist in singing a song that was an insult to the whole country, and to this commercial community in particular 1 \V;is that song intended,as it appears to have been, for a commentary on the treaty? Is the chorus a truth or a lie ? Is the empire of the seas given up by us ? Do we indeed hereafter intend to allow Great Britain to rule with a queenly sway over the ocean ? Are all the glonou9 victories and brilliant achievements of our young but gallant navy, during the last war, to go for nothing T Is it for this that Decatur, Bainbridge, Perry, Hull, Stewart and dozens ot others, fought, bled and conquered a foe that up to th>?ir day was indeed invincible upon the sea? lias it at last come to this, that we sit submissively at the foot stool of Great Britain, toss up our caps, ami proclaim with glee that hereafter she shall be what she has always arrogantly claimed to be, "Queen of the Ocean," the "High Police of the Sea r Tt the song means any thing such is its meaning If the toast is said to be an accidental affair, such was not the case with the song. It was deliberately prepared bva reverend elergyman,the pious father in God, the holy Mr. Muhlenbu rgh?it was imbued with the principles of those meo. It was sung with loud tclat by these " Merchant Princess" in the pre. senee of the high and special representative of tlyit so, called " Queen of the Ocean," preceded by a prayer from the Rev. Dr. Potts, who was present through th? whole of it, and invoked the blessings of Heaven on this interpretation of the treaty. This is no little affair, as the Journal calls it. It is a most .mportant matter. From the egg to the apple, "al ovo uiu/ve mala," it was nothing but a serifs of gross insults offered to ifie American people tad ih ir government in order to toady to the representative of the British Government then at that table. The fact is, that the whole thing was got tip by a set of impudent and ignorant financiers, who have speculations on too., and hopes and ends of their own to accomplish and obtain, which they thought could be best effected by thus depreciating their own country and extolling the government ?f this titled financier and money-lending lord. It was a mere stock-jobbing operation, in which they alone were cornered. A miserable trick?a juggle in which they attempted to sacrifice the proud name and the independence of the people of this country for the most paltry and mercenary of purposes. 'V ' again call upon the committee for further explanations?and the American people and the American press tor farther commentary. Come, thunder ami lighning, come. That Toast?Turk Chkkrs.?Charles King denies that lie got up and proposed the "cheers to <_iur->-n y 11 ioT\a. \v e never neara it asserted mat he did, before his denial, but knowing the chap, we are now inclined to believe he did. True or false ?it is of no moment. 1 le says he only " felt loathing when the President of the United States was proposed." That's enough. Nominations for Governor and Lieutenant Governor?The respective conventions have nominated Mr. Bouck for Governor, and Mr. D. S. Dickenson for Lieut. Governor, on the jmrt of the locofocos , and Luther Bradish for Governor, and Millard Fillmore for Lieut. Governor, on the part of the whigs. Now clear the way. and let us have a fair fight. Milk and Water.?The Bostonians talk of giving a dinner to Mr. Webster on the temperance plan This is on the regular poor house plan. If they dc so, h<- will have to go and get a supper at some plact where he can get a good horn of brandy and water or he'll never be able to sleep after it. Immigration to hif. Wbt.-A subscription ha: recently been raised by the citizens of Green Bay \V. T., for the purpose of employing an agent to be Rationed at the city of New York, to attend tr lorwardtng emigrants out to that section. ->SenatorMangum of North Carolina wdl neithei obey instructions from the Legislature of his State nor resign The Cr<?hv-risKk-r Medical School.?We oflep. | ve-tfrJay an of the " Stuyvesant Institute School of Medicine and Pharmacy," and explained the causes of its failure. We allowed the reasons of the rejection of all the Students educated .it that establishment, who applied for admission into the naval medical service, and disclosed the utter destitution ol this School, with reaped to the means of uflording a respectable medical education. We now proceed to examine the Crosby street School. This establishment hud fallen into rather a lethargic state previous to the advrnt of the Stuyvesant phenomena. Put in this instance the old adage, "opposition is the soul of business," was verified Stimulated to active and vigorous exertion, the old College of Physicians and Surgeons started from its supineness, and by the energy and liberality of its conduct, very soon edited its young and blustering rival. A rliniyue was opened and conducted with great eclat, and instead of the disgraceful spectacle of fellow-professors abusing and blackguarding each other, as was the case at the Sluyvesant, the professors at the old school manifested the most friendly feeling, not only to each other, but to the whole body of the profession in the city. A spring course of lectures, ut a merely nominal fee, was also given, and every facility alforded to the students in the acquirement of a sound education. The consequence was, that the students of the old school who presented themselves as candidates for admission into the naval medical service were sustained, and now till the respectable stations of assistant surgeons in the navy of their country. This fact is, as may readily be supposed, very mortifying to the Stuyvesant Faculty. Mott and Pattison attempt to throw the blame on poor Phenomenon Hedford, who was, it seems, in the habit last winter of telling the student not to be afraid of the " green-room"? he would guarantee that they would all get diplomas. Ah! how criminal the conduct of the men who could thus deceive thes? unfortunate young inen, and subject them to the sad mortification of being rejected by the naval board! What must have been the feelings of those misguided young men on finding th extent and consequences of the imposition and deception of which they had been made the victims ! What must have been the feelings ol their parents, guardians, and lriends! The Crosby Street School, we rejoice to say, acted far otherwise. A few of their students who had not attended with diligence to their studies, were refused diplomas and ordered to prosecute their education with attention for another season. This was real kindness, and manifested a widely different spirit from that which extracted the last dollar from the poor student, and sent him unfit and unprepared to the Naval Board, then to find in the most painful manner that he had been deceived ! The Crosby Street School possesses the chief control of the Hospitals, Dispensaries and public charities of the city. Hence their students have opportunities of becoming acquainted with the nature of disease and its proper treatment. We have shown mat me rMuyvesani gentlemen are saaiy aeiective in this most important matter?that, ia fact, they cannot give any clinical instruction. What stronger proof of this could be found, than that presented last winter by the attendance of the students of the new school at the cliniquet of the old college"? There, day after day, might have been seen scores of the l?oor starved students of the Stuyvesant, seeking knowledge in the great practical school of the college. The sentiments expressed by one of the most intelligent of the Stuyvesent students last winter, spoke volumes " What good does it do us to see Mott exhibit his knives and ligatures: and will Bedford's stewed oysters and cider chatnpaigne enable us to cure intermittent fever 1" The Professors at the College of Physicians and Surgeons are men of character and respectability. Dr. Beck's name i6 most honorably identified with the medical literature of his country ; Dr. Stevens enjoy s a high and merited reputation as a surgeon, and is altogether far superior to Dr. Mott. Dr. Swett, a lecturer at this School, is one of {the most accomplished physicians in the country; his lectures, as reported in the leaned, do him great credit. Drs Parker and Gilmen are men of talent, and are much revered by their students. Then the College is one of the oldest and most respectable in the land. A great number of our Army and Navy surgeons, and many of our oldest and most distinguished physicia ns were educated within its walls. But enough has been said to place the merits of the two schools in a proper light. If any of thcstu dents who nre coming Irom the country allow themselves to be im|>osed upon, they can now have no excuse. If they desire to be rejected at the naval board, and prefer the diploma of I>rs. Bedford, Pattison and Sands, they are at liberty, of course, to do so ; and instead of borrowing, to purchase better experience. New Brighton Gaieties.?The fall fashionable season begins to-night at New Brighton, with one of the most brilliant of balls, at the Pavillion, including a rtrherrhf supper, to which scores of the fashionable strangers now in town are going. New Brighton is a peculiar place. After the crowds of fashion have left Saratoga, Newport, Rockaway, Catskill, West Point, Sharon, and Niagara, a general concentration takes place in September and part of October, at New Brighton, to close the season? wind up the summer's gaieties?and have one grand re-uniVm before winter. There are about one hundred persons of both sexes ai New Brighton, many of them in possession of youth, beauty, fortune and accomplishm< nts. A great many are also going down from town?and at every ball there will be a crowd of visitors from the city that will create a furor of joy. In the bright month of September?or the glorious month of October, there is no place in the wide rem.hv.o hi,. v.,?. ti? -i~ viiguivu. J ik line an?me uclicious drives?the splendid hotel?the capital dinners?the lovely balls, and the'proximity to the city, all tend to give it a facility of materials that no other place possesses. The first fall bail begins to-night; but we learn that preparations are making lor a series of splendid tablaux rivant? an elegant pic. nic in the woods?and such pieces of gaiety which so distinguished New Brighton during the season of 1837, when Henry Lynch, Esq. was master of the revels, and opened the road to heaven. The old days of New Brighton nre at hand?and the next month will be a fearful time among tha gay. The town is so full that hundreds on hundreds can be spared?and the steamers are regular in their trips to the Island of the gay and chivalric. So, he up and away. Poetry ano Poi.itics.?A small song book has been published, containing about a score ot songs heading up Harry Clay and heading off Captain Tyler, tieneral Harrison was sung into the White House?but we doubt whether the like can be done again. The next contest will be an appeal to reason and roasted eggs?not to songs and singed cats ? The day of mere prejudice is going. ts the Santa Kk Mem.?We are sorry that this benefit comes off at the Bowery. That theatre is such a disgraced?contemptible?rotten place, that few will go, even for a good putqiose. for once, we beg the public to overcome their laatliing, and go to-night, to do one good deed. .1 ai'oainCi.rhs?Jacobin Uootkinks.?The watchmen are organizing secret political clubs. They would do netler to attend to their public duties. The whigs Hre organizing Clav cluhs, and the locofocos all sorts of clubs. This is a Jacobin age?that's , flat. , City Parcki.a Delivery.?a project o( this kind has just been started, but we doubt whether it can , succeed, or be carried into effect. mfsicai. Proscription?Does Signor de Regnii i intend to get up an Italian opera without Mrs. Sutton as prima donna? If he does, he'll find himsel 'uistaken in his hopes. City Intelligence. JriKiE Lynch and tub Habeas.?'The Buna's, it is well known are all wags, particularly Reub, but more particularly Bill, of the Register's office. Bill has been recently afflicted with a distressing felon or whitlow on one of his fingers that has nearly disabled him from the use of manual exercise and flourish of the goose quill, and while laboring under the effects of the pain was rushing through the Park yesterday, with a perlect looseness, when some inninsitive. friend stonned hint short, with "Iiow do you Bill'? where are you going in such a devil of a hurry?" " Going, why I've got a cursed felon on my linger, and I'm going to hunt up Judge Lynch to obtain a writ ol habeas corpus and have it ditchargtd forthwith. Bill bolted?his friend snorted, and when the Recorderand Alderman Carman were told the joke this morning in the Court of Sessions, we really thought an explosion would take place, attended with serious effects. This is the best of the seasonT*k Man with the Carpet Bag.?On the 23d of August, Mr. John Heritage, of 97 Chapel street, employed a man named William Bruce, to convey a carpet bag to his lodgings containing clothing valued at $20.75, and while on the way he stopped into a hou9e, when Bruce sloped with bag and all. Nothing was seen or heard of the rogue until yesterday, when Mr. Heritage met him in the street neatly dressed up with the coat, pants, and shirt that were in the nag at the time he stole it. He was fully committed. IIotrsE Breaking.?Nc less than seven dwellings were broken open last evening in various parts of the city, by burglars, and considerable property stolen. When do the Common Council intend to change the police system? or do the present party in power intend to wait until next spring, when they in all probability, will be relieved from the trouble ? Dealers in Stocks.?On the 24th of August, MrJohn Eckel, who keeps a fancy store at the corner ol Mott and Bayard streets, missed sixteen satin stocks, eleven vest patterns, and twenty unfinished stocks, but could not trace the thief. Officers Fokkes and Drinker yesterday arrested a man named Robert Kriele, a German, who confessed the theft, and was committed. Attttc a T? T'uiii'Q On WaHrtoQilnu nvnnintr o nnr. ty of street brawlers assembled in lront of the house kept by Mrs. Clark, at 22 Read street, and demanded admittance, which was refused. Officers Sweet and Colvin, who were inside tne house waiting to arrest a thief, were requested by the keeper of the house to go into the street and urge the men to disperse. While there a Mr. Mulligan, who resides next door, came into the street and threatened to call the watch, when one of the officers informed him that they were a part of the police. Some words followed, when Sweet and Mulligan came together, and while clinched, they both fell, and Mulligan's leg was broken. Complaint w-as entered against the officers for an assault, but it is presumed that they will be able to show they were first assaulted. Another Wall Street Trick.?J. B. Pollard and Jesse Evans, two of the evil geniuses that have presided over some of the small business of Wall street, have been arrested and held to bail in the sum of $1500 for defrauding Mr. Thomas Pitts, of this city, in August 1841, of a promissory note for $500, drawn by John S. Bruen, and dated April 1st, 1841, payable in two years from date. They proposed to negotiate the note by paying Mr. Pitts *#>1000 in hillnnfthf* hrnlcen nifizenR' HunLc nfMninp. which they represented would be soon current, una that they had paid fifty cents on the dollar for them. In addition, they promised to lend him $250 in current money for some of his immediate wants, which was not complied with lie received the bills and transferred the note, which they negotiated, and as he could neither recover any value for the bills of the bank, nor the note in return, finally concluded to make them suffer the penalty of the law, if there is law sufficient to punish such fraudulent transactions. Mock Auction near the Fulton Market?Let Country People Beware.?The old Chatham street system of humbugging and robbing people is not yet, it would appear, exploded?notwithstanding the strenuous ana almost incessant efforts of the public press to that end. A day or two since, a very respectable gentleman connected with the clerical profession in Brooklyn, was induced to enter the store of one William Henry M'Kenney, of 29 Fulton street, who hangs from his door a very enticing red flag, and dubs himself an auctioneer. The old system of offering bargains was resorted to, and our worthy clergyman soon became the dupe of the auctioneer ana his agents?on the " watches and rings" principle. It is not necessary to enter into details as to how the purchaser was victimised; and for all present purposes, it may suffice to state that a man named Degroot, one of M'Kenny's salesmen and factotums, together with a fellow named Totien (who offered himself in the double capacity of witness and surety for Degroot) were held to bail, by order of Justice MatselT, to answer the reverend gentleman's accusation before the General Sessions. The fancy slore of Mrs. Vanderpoel in Broadway, near the Stuyvesant Institute, was entered by false keys, yesterday morning, and almost every thing moveable carried off, to the amount of several hundred dollars. Where was the watch 1 Fortifications?Among others, the following sums have been appropriated for this harbor:? Fort Schuyler, New York harbor $20,000 Cwtla William, New York harbor 5,000 South Battery; New York harbor 2,000 Fort Columhua, New York harbor 2,000 ITnr normonont u hnrvoo for Fori Polumlina Paitlo VTilliam, and South Battery, Governor*! Iiland 8,000 Fort Hamilton, New York harbor *,000 Fort Lafayette, New York harbor 12,006 The Mormons.?No doubt Joe Smith and the Mormons are sad sinners?yet we must Fay that we don't believe one half of John Cook Bennett's stories, and those we do believe gives us no great opinion of his morals or talents. We must tell the truth and shame the devil. Mi ng News.?" Thirteen days later from Rio de Janeiro" was published in the " Express" of yesterday. Look in the " Herald" more than a week ago, and the same news will be found. Chatham Theatre.?This house, last night, was full, as usual, towitness the performances of J. R. Scott and Jim Crow Rice. To-night the new and beautiful drama of Morley Ernstein will be perfoimed, together with two of Rice's amusing pieces. Ocr Trade with North Western Mexico.?A gentleman from Santa Fe informs us that the expedition from Independence, Mo., consisted of thirty wagons and one hundred men, which would have been increased to sixty wagons and more than one hundred and fifty men, but for the sinking ?f the steamboat Lebanon. Two of the traders left our ci*y yesterday on their way to New York city, to receive the insurance money nnnn the ennd-i sent hv that boat, and others are expected daily at Independence, Mo., with a considerable quantity of the " Mexican castings." In May next the large caravan will arrive, with more than one million and a half of silver dollars, with which to purchase goods. These traders do not interfere in tne quarrels between Mexico and Texas, and are not molested by either party?they have pursued the business of supplying Santa Fe, and the whole North Western portion of Mexico, with goods, for the past four years, with considerable profit. Passkxgkks by the Ci.eopatra.?As the Cleopatra was approaching Providence on Sunday, the Stonington ferry boat was seen coming in. Her passengers were hurried on board the railroad train, which set off immediately for Boston. Had the train waited but three minutes they could have taken the Cleopatra's passengers, who were obliged to go to Boston in stage coaches, and did not arrive mere until 4 o'clock P. M. Capt. Dustan, we understand,immediately handed them back the money they would have had to pay for railroad fare, and invited them to breakfast on board the Cleopatra.? The handsome behavior of Capt. Ihinstan is worthy of all commendation. The Conorkrsionai. Districts of the State. On the electoral vote of 1842 the whigs carried the following districts:?Nos. 2, 3, 12, 13, 14, 15, 17 18 19, 22, 23. 25, 27, 28,29, 30, 31, 82,33, and 31? in ali 20 districts. The locos the balance, 14 districts. On the Congress vote in the same year, the whigs carried all the above, except the 18th and 30th districts, 18 in all?the locos 16. On the Governor's vote in 1838, the whigs carried districts 3, 8, 12,18, 11, 16, 19. 22, 21, 25,28, 29, 30, 31, 32, 33, 34-17 in all?the locos 17. On the Congress ticket the same vcar. the whigs. in addition to the above, carried the fifth district. Joe Smith.?A late number of the Quincy Herald represents that Governor Carlin had been fairly whirled out in his attempts to arrest Smith and Hock well; and adds that the Mormons will not give them up, but fight to the last. i Court of Common Plena.

[C?rrc?|M>iidence of the Herald.] Baltimore, Sept. 8, 1842. Disturbance at a Colored Camp Meeting. Mr. Editor There is a report currently circulating in the city, that a very serious disturbance took place yesterday at a colored Camp meeting, now being held on the lands of Mr. Jamison, about seven miles north ol Baltimore. The fracas was occasioned, it is said, hv the intemnerance of some voung inen (white) with the blacks whilst engaged at their cani|> duties. It appears that the depredations were such as caused the ire of the darkies to rise up, and that they set to work and gave their assailants a terrible beating, driving them entirely from the encampment, and so mutilating one of the party that he died soon after. Humor goes, that his throat was cut with a common case knife. If this affair is as bad as reported, fears are enter tained that something serious may grow out of it. 1 would modestly suggest the idea of inviting the colored worshippers ot thiB country to hold tlieir religious meetings in churches which have been built lor the purpose They will fare better, and do more good. I may he able to give further particulars tomorrow. The body of Captain G*orge Robinson, who was drowned a few days ago in the basin, was recovered yesterday.

[Correspondence of the Herald.] Philadelphia, Sept. 8,1842. There is still much difficulty and uneasiness among our weavers. Arthur McCarrall, the man who was attacked by a party of weavers on Tuesday morning, in Adams street, in the city, and forced to quit work, yesterday took out warrants for some of the party. Constables Hayman and Morrison, of Spring Garden, proceeded to execute ihe warrants, when they were chased by a large party, the former very narrowly escaping without a broken head and limbs. During the afternoon a warrant ?_1 A U.. A.. : * Alf 1 ?1 woo u uui uy me party iig.iuiM inuvjaiiai, cuttrging him with stealing a bible from the colored church in St. Mary's street, at the time it was destroyed by fire, who was taken before Alderman McCleane, and committed to prison in default of bail. The effect of the hard times, and the disorders among our operatives, is forcibly told in the voluntary application yesterday made the Mayer Cannon, by a weaver of the name of Fansten, to be committed to prison. He stated that five months ago he made a similar application, which at the time was granted; that he remained in prison the term of thirty days?that since then he had been endeavoring to make a living?that he recently got work at his trade, and that on Friday a part of his fellow workmen visited his place, tore his work from the loom, and violently abused him. He said that he had no means to gain a livelihood, could not bear to beg, would not steal, and was anxious under the circumstances to find a refuge in prison. His face presented marks of violence at the time of his application. Last evening about ten o'clock, John Hoover, residing in Wood street above Snhuylkill Second, while in the act of going up stairs, fell down ana disjointed his neck, from which injury he died a short time afterwards. Yesterday morning, Bernard Murphy, belonging to a canal boat, was drowned in the Schuylkill, near the falls. He was drawn into the water by the towing line, and immediately disappeared. His body was, however, recovered. Tne Penn Township Bank of this city, has resumed on its demand notes?few or none of which, hv tin-wav are in circulation, hnvinir nrnbahlv been bought in by the agents of the bank at a heavy discount. Its deposites and its " relief" notes, are still unredeemed. Reading Rail Road at the board today, was firm at 20. Cause of rise, demand from the east. * Theatrical.?The Park has got out of the "straw" and is now doing well. The Chatham is brisk?Bowery gone?and the Olympic we fear is a-going. Pants and Politics.?Luther Bradish wears the the neatest pants in Broadway. Is not that good reason to make him governor T D?n the expense. Nirlo's.?The Ravels and troupt in three enter tainments this evening. The new pantomime still attracts full gardens, and from all appearances will continue to do so for some time to come. The secret of the matter is, it is so well brought out?parties having once seen it, are sure to repeat their visit. Edge had a splendid saloon on Wednesday, and his display of Fireworks was perfect?he certainly is number one in his beautifal and complicated art. That Fe.tee Mermaid.?This half fish, half maid has produced an immense sensation here during the last few weeks. It remains at the American Museum this week, after which the manager assures positively it cannot be seen. No person should fail to see it. Naturalists who believed the story of mermaids to be a fable are perfectly won />/u?'rf, and acknowledge their error.

To Sensible Citizens. (K7- WE KNOW FROM WHAT WE SEE AND feel, that the animal body, is in its organs and func tions, subject to derangement, inducing pain and tending to its destruction. In this disordered state, we observe nature providing for the re-establishment of order, by exciting some salutary evacuation of the morbific matter, or by some other operation, which escapes our Imperfect senses and researches. In some cases she brings on a crisis hy the bowels, at others by sweating, kc. See. Now experience has taught us that there are certain ' substances, by which, applied to the living body, internally or externally, we can at will produce the same evacuations, and thus do in a short time, what nature could do but slowly, and do effectually what she might not have strength to accomplish. When then we have seen a disease cured by a certain natural evacuation, should that disease occur again, we fiay count upon curing it by the use of such substanc%, as we know bring about the same evacuation, which we^ad before obsorved to cure a similar disease. It is in consequence of the power which the BRANDRETH PILLS exert upon the whole system, that makes them so universally beneficial. It is because they impart to the body the power to eipel disease without leaving any evil effect.

That it so acts is proved from the fact that persons who have taken the syrup and at the same time have had some other disease in the system with rheumatism, have been surprised to find all go off together. A gentleman at Westchester is now giving the syrup to his young son for Scrofula, or Kiag's Evil, and he is recovering rapidly. Mrs. Smith, No. 11 York street, is also giving it to her son, a young man about eighteen years old, who is getting well, 'fhis has been a most deplorable case of Scrofula.

A young lady, a school teacher, corner of Essex and Stanton streets, has been cured of an imetuate sick or nervous headache, which she has had for twenty years. Trevious to using the syrup she never escaped an attack longer than two days?oitener she had it every day. She has not now had an attack since the first part of July, the time she commenced the syrup. She can be seen at any time there during school hours. We mention these instances to show the wonderful purifying powers of this modicine and its cougeniallty to the human system. But it is in rheumatism that we boast of it, and here we say it is not onlyunequalled but no other medicine approaches it in efficacy.

The Genuine Extract of Sarsaparllla, Prepared by THE COLLEGE OF MEDICINE AND PHARMACY Of the City of New York. CUT- THERE IS NO ARTICLE IN THE MATERIA Modica, of which so many spurious and inert preparations, have been offered, as Sarsaparilla. Indeed, many members of the medical profession go the length of denying in tolo, the efficacy of this invaluable drug, and they have been led to this disbelief of its virtues, by the wretched mixtures which have been and are at present palmed on the public, as genuine extracts ol the article. The College desire no stronger and more intelligible proof ol the worthlessness of these mixtures, than that evidence which is afforded by the very advertisements of their manufacturers. The frequent extravagant pull's which are thrust before the public bear on their front the impress of the most impudent quackery. Powers arc ascribed to Sarsaparilla which it does not really possess, and certificates of alleged cures, represented to have been effected by its use, are paraded at length, whilst every educated physician, well knows that no such results could by any possibility have followed from the use even of the most carefully prepared extracts- of Sarsaparilla. It is under these circumstances, and in accordance with their extended plan of suppressing all descriptions of medical imposture, that the "College of Medicine and Pharmacy" oiler to the notice of the public, TheGesi'iss Extract of 8ariapaR1LI-a. This article has been prepared at great expense, accord, ing to the new process of the Parisian pharmaceutists, and it confidently denominate 1 the only really valuable preparation of Sarsaparilla now offered for sale in this country. Together with the aAivs principle of the Smilax ojficivalit? the best species ol the root?the College have incorporated that peculiar modification of sugar, which has Seen termed glyryrrhizin. In the "Extracts" of the nostrum-venders anil certain druggists, the common extract ol liquorice is the chief ingredient, and can readily be detected. But it is proper to state that in most cases this extract of liquorice is adulterated, and contains copper derived from tha pans in which the decoction of the root is I'VQrmroIo/l Th? f 'nlliurn tuish (Itna inn lat lxr fn eriianl the public against ths pernicious tendency of mixture*, containing large quantities of this poisoned liquorice. The ' Kxtract," prepared by the Collige, contain! alao an appropriate quantity of the peculiar cry stallizable principle, obtained from that valuable vegetable bitter, Gentian, (*o nailed from Oentiui. King of Illy ria, who flnt diicovered it! great virtue!.) A small |>ortion of the active constituent* ol the Iwituxis Sassafras, another vegetable, whose efficacy as an alterative and purifier of the blood is well known, has likewise been auded. These several articles have been incorporated, and their peculiar principles compounded in a highly concentrated form, and the re. suit has been the production of a vegetable alterative and tonic, unequalled for power and efficacy. The College merely add the following extract from the edition just published of Brando's "Practical Dictionary of the Materia Medica ? " This article has been prescribed in chronic rheumatism?in obstinate cutaneous buptions?in indolent ulcers in glandular affections?in diseases of the bones, attended by dull aching pains, tumors and nodes?wasting of the flesh?and id hat prorcd a raluahle remedy, and fa* sometimes effecltd a cure where other alterntiaes hare he'n long administered in rain, and when the diltaetd stale nf the system hat 'seen of many year* duration.

JWONKY HARKIT. Thursday, September 8?0 p. 91. The transactions at the Stock Board were small today, and prices were heavy. Illinois O's fell J per cent ; Kentucky 6's J ; Delaware and Hudson } ; Farmers' Loan J ; Moliawk 'J ) Stonington rose 1 per cent. A sale of United States 6 per cent stock was made yesterday at 101, having over 1 per cent interest accumulated on it. This iact was published by the Express, with great glorifica tion, as the effect of the new tariff, the sale being repre sented at a premium, when really at a discount. The fact is. that effect, supposed to ba produced by the tariff, has already passed away. Some dealers put up the prices of their goods, but they cannot realise. People will not submit to the high prices, being convinced that the duties will be modified at the coming session of Congress. Meantime, dealers buy only to supply immediate wants, and importers do not order goods more than sufficient scarcely to keep up their assortment. They are convinced that stocks now here are greater than are necessary? while the foreign market for domestic produce is so restricted. This being the state of affairs, the Government revenues will be very small j and when importations are wanted for the spring trade, the mercantile community, will put forth their energies, and compel a modification of present rates. The idle clamor, got up in relation to the increased employment given to workmen in the manufactories, is pure stage trickery. Many factories reduced their work, and discharged their hands in order to produce an effect in procuring the passage of the tariff. Now that the object is obtained, the re-employment of those hands is ascribed to the good effect of the tariff, when the truth is, domestic goods are lower than ever, and likely to be still worse, for the reason that the foreign demand for produce is cut off by excluding foreign goods in payment. The following table will show the prices of the leading articles of domestic goods in the Boston market, at different periods ? Pricks or Lowkll Manufactlrks and or Ufland C?tton inthk Boston Market.

The fact is, however, that at these low prices, with corresponding rates for raw materials, the manufacturers do better than in 1839, when prices were 20 per cent higher than now. The operation of the tariff must be to restrict their salos, and render them less prosperous in the end. There is much indignation expressed among the holders of bills of Vermont broken safety fund banks, and with good reason. It is now three years since that most atrocious concern, the Essex Bank of Ouildhall, tailed. Its assets were taken from the creditors by proceedings in' Chancery, on the application of the Bank Commissioners. What has become of those assets 2 The bill holders hav e never received a cent. The Vermont safety fund is a most ridiculous humbug?not one dollar of it is in existence. It is a mere ' decoy-duck,"by which the assets of a failing bank are drawn into the hands of commissioners, from whom they are never recovered. Instead of tho words "Vermont Safety Fund" on the face of a bill being a guarantee of safety, it is a mere notice that the concern is marked as a victim to the spoilers. All such bills should he avoided. The Legislature of Vermont, for the honor of the State, should take prompt and active measures to investigate the misdeeds that have been practised by the Bennington, Essex, and other Banks, and take mesLSures to prevent such doings for the future. The defalcations that take place among the employees of banki, broken, and monied in*titutioni, can be no matter of surprise to thote who obaerve the " ailence, or when not silent, the paliating publication* of most of the city papers," in relation to the enormous bubbles that have of late exploded, involving men of " high itationi, extensive connection*, wealth and influence," in transactions of the most bare-laced and atrocious rascality. The last exposure, that of the American Life and Trust Company, was one, the attempted justification of which is enough to corrupt all and every person engaged in the management of monied concerns in trust for others. Here is a concern with a capital of $'2,000,000, <he subscriptions of a large number of individuals, fails outright. On examining its assets we find that W. H. Seward, John Duer, Daniel Webster, Charles A. Davis, with fifteen other individuals, have seized and divided among themselves $1,177,600 of the capital. These people have borrowed $3,600,000 in London, and mortgaged themselves, their bonds, mortgages, and promises, in payment. The Secretary of the United States, and the Governor of the State of New York, are pledged for dishonored bonds to London brokers. The publication of this fact is called, by that superb spe. cimen of " pride in rags," who edits the New York American, an " unwarrantable exposure of a private concern." This identical personage, with the same clique who have divided the spoils of that devoted company, were the instruments of procuring the indictment, in 18-ifl, of individuals connected with the Life and Fire Co. of that day, some of whom were sent to the State Prison. If those person* were deserving of indictment and punishment, how much more deserving of it are the perpetrators of the frightful frauds which are daily " palliated and justified'' by a corrupt and venal press. W. H. Seward has published a long letter, in which ho seeks to mystify his connection with shinplaster Schermerhorn in the Chautauque land speculation. He endeavors to make it appear, of course, that he did it from purely disinterested motives, merely to benefit the " dear peopled?nothing more. The oiiicers of the U. S. Bank en tered the cotton market from purely patriotic motives.? They put the profits in their own pockets,|and charged the losses upon the Bank for the same reason. Governor Seward's operation was simply this : He with his partners bought of the Holland Land Company a certain traok of land in Chautauque County, on which there were settlers who were paying for their farms as they could earn the money ; when their farms were paid for they received their deeds. In the very hey-day of paper speculation, Seward & Co came forward and bought the whole track over the heads of the settlers, as he states for fSOO.OOO.? Tart of this tract was settled and part unsettled. The object was then to make the settlers pay for the whole track out oftheir labor, and leave the unsold lands in the hands of Seward k Co. as their part of the speculation. The claims of the Holland Company upon the settlers were not in a negotiable form ; therefore Seward k Co. first agreed with the Company that they should take bonds of the American Life and Trust in payment for the lands.? They then went to the Life and Trust, and agreed to give the mortgages of the settlers, bearing interest, for the Company's bonds. They then went to the settlers snd w heedled them into taking full titles for their farms, and giving bonds and mortgages for the balance due. To pay these bonds and the interest on them, tlimsettlers were to 1 t.:i ..i a l?
