The great crowd ot advertiting now in ourcolumnt renders this necesaary. Every advertiser should come to the ottice in perton, or ten I a trust.worthy agent. This it the best way. We have thought it useful to the public to give them notice, because, in consequence of our great circulation, being thirty thouiand (which it greater than that of an\ i wo papers in the city), the Herald is becoming the principal advertising vehicle for all the wants, wishes, and operations in society. JAV1ES GORDON BENNETT, tfortk Weil Comer of Fallon and JVansau streets. The Great Contest.?The elements are in motion from New York to Buffalo, relative to the next election in this State. Conventions have been held by both patties ; candidates have been selected, and clubs are forming all over the State, but particularly in this city. The democrats are making the most of the events that have occurred during the last year; particularly the failure o( the wings to curry out their proposed measures?all except the tariff; and have made a great deal ot capital out of their incapacity to conduct the affairs of government, or to have the lend in Congress. It seems now, on the other hand, that the Whigs mean to try?at least during the Presidential election?the old sing-song game which carried "Ti|>pecanoe and Tyler too" into the Presidential chair. The hard cider system cannot be so effectually carried out, because so many temperance societies have sprung into existence since then ; and, like Sandy Welsh, many of the wliigs have "joined." So that there will be a great conflict between the antagonist principles of the two parties. However, they have got out their song books for a commencement, and we here give a sample o( their best songs:? Clear the Way for Harry Clay. Tint?"

The Baltimore Fire and Life Company, and the North American Trust Company, are both gone; there is no money in the Southern banks; and therefore the western banks must help us. Songs will not do without silver. Therefore, gentlemen financiers of the west, send on the specie to New York if you wish Henry Clay to be elected. Grumbling.* op the Old Clo' Party.?The '"Sun," penny paper, has been in spasms for several days, in consequence of its declining circulation, its diminishing advertising, and its general bad health and approaching dissolution. Accordingly, under the advisement of Noah, it begins to vent its spite on the Herald, and to return to its old lies and its natural untruths. The aggregate daily and weekly circulation of the Sun is now reduced to 19,00#?about 10,000 less than that of the Herald. This fact we know just as well as Beach does. It is also principally circulated among poor people?few real men of business. The only windfall that has saved the Sun thus far, is the post office advertising, which at our request and solicitation, (done too from charitable purposes) Col. Graham gave it,to keep its head above water a little while longer, and to see what it could do tor Captain Tyltr. Since that event it has taken Noah, an old hack,roul in politics, into pay, and publishes ing paper, which it modestly sells first tor a penny in the morning, and then for two cents in the afternoon. The only thing that saves the Sun is the post office pap, for which it has become the mere organ of a rhijuc of old clo' politicians, with Noah at their head, who only use the Sun and Beach, as stepping stones to their oldolfices in the Custom House. Almost every day the Little Iiiddle has to till his vacant columns with the post office letters, or silly love stories?besides selling as waste paper, large quantities of both'Union and Sun. The fact is, Beach has burst his boiler by his Ulster and Jacksonville shinplaster operations?his steamboat speculations?his oil spe. culations?and he is now settling dawn an old miserable hack of a politician, with Noah for his foreman, to teach him all his exploded rogueries. To vent their spleen, in fear of this destiny, Noah and Beach attempt to depreciate the Herald, and to underrate our vast and increasing circulation. These chaps may bark as much as they please, but we shall see both out at the elbows and out of existence. Their only support now is a little Treasury pap, for which they are indebted to us, and to which they are perfectly welcome as long as they behave. But they won't behave. Noah has killed six papers in New York, and he will kill the Sun, and close his career. Noah once conducted the " National Advocate," and it died. He conducted the "New York National Advocate," and it died. He conducted the "New v?,l ? or,.i ;< ;? i.?,i i....... ??i.i it would have died also. He conducted the " New York Courier and Enquirer," and it would have died if Webb had not kicked him out of the concern. He conducted the "Evening Star," and it died, besides using up the "New York Times" by a side wind. In fact every paper that Noah has been connected with, has died a natural death, from want of principle, want of talent, want of industry, want of tact, want of genius. He has murdered more newspapers than any man of his age. He is a perfect newspaper-killer, and he will soon be the death of the silly Sun, and its evening edition, called the Union. The Sun is setting?its circulation sinking ?its advertising going?its influence nothing. StjrA.su ? Horace Greeley, the amiable galvanised squash of the nineteenth, the patron of all sorts of humbug, has at length turned a wit and humorist, and in his programme of the procession yesterday, li>erpetrates the following excruciating thing :? The Great Natoleos ot the liberal Newspapers, Squill* and Itch Ointment, (blowing, ol course.) Banner?Portrait* of Jama* Gordon Bennett, LL. D., Joe Smith and ("apt. Tyler, the great masterspirit* of the Nineteenth Century. Motto?' Take a Herald! or a Lancet 1 of an Arti.a 7? No ? Then have some of my Sarsaparilla, or Life-Tills. Honorable secrecy at my College of Tharmacy. Any thing to earn a bawbee, you know.' Le J tun Editeur, in a crib, by turns sucking a bottle and squalling. Motto?" Oreat cry and little wool " Po. We can ?asily account for these itchings, but particularly the fling at the " young editor."? Horace Greeley has been four years in the traces, hut has no young aditor yet, not even a young squash to put in a crib. He has been trying all the virtues of brown bread, cold water, but still no young editor squalls or sucks a bottle. Perhaps if he would take a bottle of that itch ointment, or sarsaparilla, or life pills, he might succeed in getting a young squash at most. As to the motto, we have no objection. According to all accounts, the motto at the breakfast table of the Graham House in Barclay street, where Horace vegetates, is " Little cry and plenty of wOol." Death of Mrs. Tyler.?We deeply regret to hear that this amiable lady, wife of the President of the United States, expired at the White House, on Saturday evening, after a protracted illness. Her remains will leave Washington on Tuesday, for interment at the family mansion in Virginia Upon the annunciation of this melancholy event at the immense meeting in the Park yesterday, it cast a gloom over the whole assembly, which was immediately adjourned, in testimony of respect for their Chief Magistrate. The Ashburton Dinner.?We find the following in the "Montreal Commercial Messenger." It sho?s that even foreigners entertain more respect for the Chief Magistrate of this country than some who claim to be native horn:? " Previous to his departure from New York, Lord Ashburton was feasted by a couple of hundred of the citizens, who vied with each other in their demonstrations of respect to the empire. They had the very bad taste, however, to show a glaring mark of disres|>ect to theirown Chief Magistrate,at the drinking of whose health none rose from their seats, while all cheered when the health of Queen Victoria was proposed. Lord Ashburton and the British officers present, when the Presidential toast was given, rose to cheer, but seeing themselves alone, they immediately resumed their seats. The circumstance could scarcely fail to make the guests very uncomfortable during the evening." Two Days Later from Havana.?Capt.

Colonel Beekman is grand son to General George Clinton, late Vice President of the United States, and for many years Governor of the State of New \ ork. The Colonel ia one ot the most noble looking officers in the State, and a Clinton, every inch o( him. We hope Ins military prowess and valor will correspond with his other apparent ipialities.

I The Procession Yesterday.?The crowded state I of our columns compels us to be very brief on tin:* (>oint. Suffice it to say that we were agreeably disappointed. It was one ot the most interesting sights we ever witnessed in this or any other city. There were, at least, 4<M)0 persons in the procession, which at one time was two miles long. All was orderly, quiet, respectable and dignified, and all (mstied off in the most harmonious manner. The crowd of spectators was so great?over 10,000 ?that the procession could not form in the Park. It left in detatchments and formed in Chatham Square and street. The National Banner was at the head. Then a band of music; two fine military companies; an omnibus, drawn by ten horses, tnluind, with a tlag ol the names of all ha Presidents. Then a banner, inscribed? oooooo 0000000000900 oodooo O 0 o An Insult to the o o o o PRESIDENT, o O 0 o Is an Insult to thf o o o o NATION. o o o 0003000000000000000000000 Then came the Nation, represented by twenty-six carriages, each drawn by white horses, and each containing four ladies and a little boy ; there was a ll isr on each carriage with the name of the State, ! and each boy held a flag called the "Rejected Toast.' I The ladies were, most of them, very handsome, and young, and were all blood relations, wives, daughters, Arc , of the gentlemen composing the Committee. It was a new feature?a beautiful sight, and no mistake. Each carriage had an escort of two gentlemen on white horses. This arrangement of ladies was to show the harmony, beauty and simplicity of our form of government. After thein came the fire companies, two more military companies, the Spartan Hand, with a beautiful banner, all looking remarkably well. Then several private carriages, led by postmaster Graham in a carnage. Then some hundreds on horseback, and several on foot, although the day was hot. We were agreeably disappointed. The whole thing was admirably arranged. We do not approve qf ladies in processions, but this was most capitally managed and told well. After a long tour through the city, the procession retured to the Park, where 10,000 people were assembled, and hundreds of well dressed ladies. Daniel Jackson, Esq. was appointed Chairman, and several Yice Presidents. Mr. Locke read an address. The following resolutions were then read and passed, amid loud cheering, and 26 cheers for John Tyler, President of the United States:? Resolved, That certain occurrence* at the Treaty Banquit given to Lord Ashhurton, the Special Knvoy and Minister Plenipotentiary of Great Britain, at the Astor House, in the City of New York, on the'id of September, lSlj, were of a character and importance that should arrest the attention of the whole American people, and call forth a universal expression of indignation. Resolved, That when, on that occasion, the American national toast, " Tho President of the United State*," wns received with contemptuous silence, broken only hy derisive laughter, or other expression* ol disreapect, while the British national toast, " The Queen of Great Britain," was drank with exultation and reiterated cheer*, en insult was offered to the Chief Magistrate of our country and government, which we are bound, a* Americans and Republicans, to repel, in justice at once to him, to ourselves, to to our government, and to our country. Resolved, That all who actively participated in the infliction of that insult, are by that act personally disgraced, rendered unworthy of the American name, and deserving of public execration. Resolved, That all who passively participated in the infliction of that insult, by not protesting against it, or otherwise repelling it, are guilty of a gross dereliction of duty as American citizens. Resolved, That it was the duty of every good citizen who was present when that insult was given, cither to protest against it, to the person presiding on the occasion, or to leave the scene of so gross an outrage. Resolved, That in this last dastardly attack upon the President, we see the progres of a systematic attempt on the pattof his malignant opponents, and prosecuted through two successive sessions of Congress, to destroy the Executive department of the government, and to bring it under the control of a faction, fatal to the liberty of the people. Resolved, That we will sustain the Executive depart ment, whosoever may administer it, and will preserve it inviolate, with every other wise provision in our glorious constitution, for the"benefit of future generations. Resolved, That we solemnly deny that proceedings at the Treaty Dinner given to Lord Ashburton, at the Astor House, on the 3d Inst., in the name of the " merchants and citizens of New York," meet with the approbation of our citizens, except so far as they may be deemed justly complimentary to the distinguished representative of the British nation and the American Secretary of State, for so happily contributing their aid to heal the rankling differences iietween two nations of kiudrod origin, language ami population. Resolved, That we solemnly protcat to Great Britain, Franee and all other nations, the insults offered to our President on that occasion, are not approved by the people of the United States, but excite and will continue to call forth their utmost indignation ; that they were the acts of the internal enemies of our form of government and republican freedom ; whose opinions, objects and policy, we verily "believe to be identical with those of the old Federrl party and its political descendants, who snoercd at our country's victories, ridiculed its valor and treacherously hoiited blue lights to conduct the ships of the enemy into our harbors, to lay waste our cities and pillage our citizens. Resolved, That a correct description of the proceedings of the citizens of New York thisuay, in their procession, and this concluding public meeting, be published in the London Times and Paris Constitutionel, as well as in several journnls of this city and Washington. Resolved, That we solemnly protest against the omission of the name of the President of the United States, at that dinner, as the American contracting rarty to the Treaty of Washington ; the President and Senate being the only authorities to national treaties known to the Constitution ; and we consider this omission the more invidious and disgraceful, because it is well known that President Tyler exercised great sagacity, ability and indefatigable enerirv. in the nroirress ami modification of that treaty, frem' its commencemant to its gratifying consummation. At the moment of the termination of the regular proceedings, the melancholy tidings of the death of the lady of President Tyler was announced to the meeting, and was received by the immense mass in perfect silence, and with that becoming respect due the announcement of such an afflicting Providential dispensation, and, therefore, the meeting immediadjourned, which deprived several distinguished orators from addressing the multitude. Commissary General Henry Storms fired a Presidential aalute of twenty-six guns at the Arsenal, at sun-down, with a brass piece taken by Commodore Decatur at Tripoli. A Stravukr in Town.? The influx of strangers here during the last few weeks has been very great; not only from Europe and the most celebrated parts of this country,but we have lately had a distinguished arrival from the Croton Darn. One of the leather factories in Ferry street yesterday finding their water stopped applied to the Commissioners; one of Hie latter made an excavation where the main connects with the house pipe, and in the cock they found an eel three feet long, that had travelled all the way from the Croton Dam. This must be seen to. If we pay for water, don't give us eels into the bargain. What next shall we find in the Croton water or in the cocks connected with it.

Sir Charles Bagot has sent" in his massage, from which we extract the two following extracts, being all that is of the least interest to this country:? " 1 rejoice that 1 ain able to acqnaint you that a treaty between Great Britain and the United States, has been signed on the |>art of Her Majesty, and since ratified by the Federal Senate, by which the important questions affecting this province ; and the United States have been ad|usted. From this happy settlement. the ratification of wnich by Her Malesty I hope soon to be able to announce to you, I augur the most favorable consequences to the province in the maintenance of peace, the restoration of confidence, and the devotion of lire Undivided energies of its inhabitants to the internal advancement, and the developemest of the vast resources of the country. i nese have been among Her Majesty'schief objects in the negociation of thy* treaty ; and I am commanded by the (|ueen to state to you that no wish is nearer to her Majesty's heart than that, under her rule and protection of her Crown, all her faithful subjects in Canada, may rest in unindisturbed peace: may feel themselves to he one people with 1 their fellow subjects in the British islands; and may increase in wealth, prosperity and contentment, founded on the possession and rational enjoyment of a tree and essentially British constitution. 1 . BY THE SOUTHERN MAIL. Baltimore. [Cotreiltomlence of the Herald. J Baltimore, Sept. 12, 1842. Mit. Editor At the uslicring in of thin ever memorable day?

glorious in the annals of the American history? there was sent up from the mouths of those war gods belonging to the Junior Artillerists a gladsome welcome, which seemed to make old nature trem ble. This day twenty-eight years ago our fathers were in arms to defend their home from the invasion of a foreign foe, and now, at this very moment, a remnant of them are in Monument Square, preparing to commemorate the victory given by the God of liatUcs and chastened by the soldier s blooo. rings are Hying in every direction, drums are already beating, and the military are preparing for parade. Our city exhibits a more jnspirating and lovely aspect than it has for many months. A large number of strangers have come in, attracted by the anniversary celebration, as also the Democratic State Convention being held for the purpose of maturing plans, Arc. In consulting with a gentleman irom Washington yesterday, one who is well acquainted with cabinet secrets, I learned that in all probability the resignations of Messrs. Forward and Spencer would be forthcoming the present week. Daniel does not purpose giving up his place just at present; he wants a little more time for consideration. The Hon. Thomas Marshall, of Kentucky, made a temperance sj>eech in the Square, on Saturday evening, to an immense concourse of hulies and gentlemen. He was eloquent, truly so. It was one of the most sensible discourses upon the subject that 1 ever listened to. All that sickening stupidity which characterizes so many of the temperance addresses, was left out. lie snoke about an hour, during which time hardly an individual left the ground. He is unquestionably a great man?great above all things in independence of character. A man named Robert Perry, aged about 30, fell front the deck of the steamboat Columbia into the hold, on Saturday night last, and broke his neck. He had acted in the capacity of watchman. The Front street theatre, under the management of Mr. Willard, has opened with one of tne best companies we have had in Baltimore for many years. I am srlstci to that our favorite \1i?n T>?p lh<? py. quisite danseust, is engaged. She has improved much, both in dancing and appearance. Her favorites in Baltimore, as in other cities, are numerous. She is a pet. A variety of balls and amusements are advertised for to-night. We have a complete mixture of gaity and patriotism, together with a most beautiful and favorable day. Yours, Roderick. Philadelphia. [Correipondence of the Herald.] Philadelphia, Sept. 12,1842. Thr Ins nrvl the Outs at the Custom House?Firemen's Riot?Arrival of Emigrants, <$*'' This morning Thomas S. Smith, Esq., President of the Common Council of th? city,and late a member of the Legislature, was duly qualified in office as Collector of the Port, in the place of Jonathan Roberts removed. This is the first gun at Henry Clay from the Executive encampment, and has already done serious havoc in the ranks of the Clay forces. Eight or ten were found'headless last night, and before the ball loses its force I have no doubt three or four times the number will be found in the same decapitated condition. The turned gentlemen will meet with little sympathy, they having without cause so recently taken the places of men equally if not more competent than themselves. It is but returning the poisoned chalice to their own lips Mr. S is an active, intelligent man, and I have no doubt will make an efficient officer. A night inspec tor, with one leg, turned out by Mr iberti for being ? M, i. This shows him to be not witln '-fling at any rate. There was another disgrace riot among the firemen on Saturday night up t< Several persons were severely injured on -ides, and it is said that some were woundeil hots fired from muskets. Fire arms of some kind, it is asserted positively, were nsed by the belligerents One of the members of tbe Independence, named Henry Painter, was injured by being knocked down upon the curbstone. Another member of the same company, named Thomas Kni| e, was arrested by the watchman, but afterwards released on bail. The bark Philada arrived at this port yesterday morning, with 168 passengers! This number is made up of families, old and young, who are on their way almost all of tliem, to the far west- The most of them have brought money enough with them to buy ns much land as they can till, and all of them have hale and hearty constitutions, and a will to work. Their money adds to the nation's wealth; bu. their industry more. .Such emigrants are ever welcome to our shores. The bark, we noticed, was injured in her main mast,whether from the effects of a gale, or otherwise, I could not learn. This is an excessively hot day. At the stock board little was done. New Orleans. [Correspondence of the Herald.] New Orleans, Sept. 4,1842. New Cotton?Banks?Duel?Religion?Mexico? Yellow Fever. Sir :? We have had another dull week, ending our commercial year on 1st September instead ot 1st Oct., as was formerly the custom. Commercial operations since my last, has been of no account. New cotton is arriving every day?2500 bales have been received this season?about 1500 sold at 7 to 9jc Few buyers in market. Flour is dull at $4 25. In the absence of buyers, Exchange is scarce and the rates have improved?on London 4J per cent prem. New York, OOdays, 1 per cent, dis.; sight 1 per ct. prem Banknotes generally have improved. Citizens'flat at 40 to 45 per cent dis. This Bank was sued by the Attorney General tor the Jorteiture of its charter, but when the trial came on, two days since, it was found some informality existed in the proceedings and he has to commence anew. The Commissioners of the Atchafalaya are about commencing suit against the President, Cashier and all the Directors wno have been in office at any time the last four years, for mal-adnnnistration of its affairs. It is said the Secretary of State has written, on the part of the Government, to the teller at Havana, that he tnav return and give evidence in the suit, and he shall not be molested. Some new developments will be made when this trial is had, of the singular manner in fwhich banking business hasbeen conducted in this city. The Consolidated Dank hns come within the requisition of the law, by obtaining specie. She has improved her condition very much in the last three months. Mr. Collins, of the Advertiser, who was shot last Sunday in a duel, is likely to recover. The intended duel last Monday did not take place, the parties having been bound over to keep the peace. I, regret to say the controversy between Bishop Blanc and the wardens of the church of St. Louis yet rages w itli unabated violence. The French papers are fi led with accounts of sessions, resolutions, pastot il letters, and quotations of canon laws, <fcc. A gra id canvocation of the clergy has been had here to advise with the bishop, who insists, in his last pastoral letters, on the appointment of Mr. Ronselin as cur?, but is willing to refer the matter to his Holiness at Rome for his ultimate decision.

Advices from New Orleans give rumors from that city detrimental to mercantile credit in that quarter. Dates from Yucatan to the 17th ult., via New Orleans, bring the lollowing decree opening the ports for the importation of corn free of duty :? Article 1st?It is permitted to import corn free of duty. Article 2d?With every one hundred loads (cargas) imported, it is allowed to bring ten barrels of Hour free of duty. Article 3d?The privilege granted in the preceding two articles, will extend only to the 81st December next. We yesterday made some remarks on the great change which is going on in the currency of the Union-, and consequently in the manner of doing,business. In this city the receipts of produce from the interior are on tha inci ease, and prices show a corresponding inclination to give way in the article of flour particularly. This great abundano* of produce, and the falling ~pr'cef> l*as been a powerful cause in changing tho old mode of accepting. Very few of the houses now dring business in this city accept drafts uatil the produce is actually in hand. The substantial owners and shippers in the western part of tfte State, do uot draw until they receive an account of sales. The amount of accep ances by city houses against produce to come forward, bears a very small proportion to w hat was formerly the case, and those are mostly by the old houses which have become involved it, and are obligod t" feed their old correspondents. The present cash system saves expense, p.nd is safer and more profitable to all parties.? Where the houses come under acceptance for produce in hand, it is generally for about three fourths of the market price, thus leaving themselves atnjily covered to meet all contingencies. These acceptances constitute the best class of paper for the western banks, but the amount is not large, and is dsscohntcd with caution. They have not yet reached their minimum, notwithstanding that many farmers are disposed to hold over their wheat and then di minish next year's crop. We believe few or none of the dealers calculate upon a higher average than f t 50 per barrel for flour during the ensuing winter in the New York market, and probably throughout the Union it will not average $3.75, and without a foreign demand will go much lower. The etfect of the new tariff of duties will be in a degree, by excluding foreign goods that might come here in exchange for produce, to diminish the foreign market, and by retaining the surplus at home, sink the value of the whole crop to a fearful extent. In ltUO, 600,000 barrels of Hour m-ere seat to V'nelaii.l in oxohanira for iron and cloths, or rather iron and cloths were sent here, a>d the flour taken in payment ami carried back. The withdrawal of that 600,000 barrels from this market, caused the crop of 1841 to average $1.60 per barrel higher, or $6 per barrel instead of $4.60, as in 1840. The whole crop of wheat was, according to the estimates of the department, based on the census of the former year, 90,000,000 bushels, equal to 19,000,000 barrels of flour. Tho value of this was im" proved $1.60 per barrel, making $37,000,000 put into the pockets of the farmers, by sending $3,700,000 worth ou' of the market. If that 600,000 barrels bad been destroyed entirely,there would have been an agricultural gain of $34,300,000. This illustrates the principle on which the old Dutch East India Company were wont to burn up tho surplus stock of spices in order to enhance the value of the remainder. Instead of destroying that flour, howevcri $3,000,000 worth of cloth and iron was got in exchange for it. That method of disposing of the surplus is now checked greatly by the tariff,and the farmers are called upon to pay higher prices lor all the iron they use, and the clothes they wear. The manulacturen have promised the farmers that if the taritf was imposed, they would buy more flour and pork at better prises. Let us sea what chance there is of such an event. Abbott Lawrence, Esq., is proprietor of a lactory at Lowell, which employs 1,390 females, average wares. $3 per week?and 300 males, average wages $4 80 week. They manufacture -.210,000 yanli of cotton cloth per week. The supposition in, that Mr. Abbott Lawrence and all those in his employ, hare had enough to eat herotorore ; that none of them have gone hungry for wont of bread and for want of pork ; and that their powers of consumption of those articles, have been at their maximum. Mr. Lawrence has been very active in procurmr the present tariff, which operates u|>on cotton goods, as seen in the following table of the quantity, value and average cos' per yard of prints not exceeding 36 cents per yard, and white cotton not over 30 cents p*^ yard, imported iorjix years, from ofticial documents * hiroaTi or Cottox Ooods mro thc Uxitt.d States.
