And this alarm is increased by the consideration of the fact that no where in the Union are the laws against the above crimes so badly administered an in the city of New York. IIow ninny murders have we not had in this city during the List few years?say, even from the time of young Robinson, and yet no one has been detected, or if caught, they have never been punished 1 We could name at least a score of cases of this description. Kiots, lights, and robberies, without number, have been perpetrated with impunity ; seldom have any of th ; oienders been caught; or when they have, r-.sort to tli habeas corpus and straw bail system, has almost invai lably got them clear through the meshes of the law. And in addition to all this, we have had several prize fights and four or five duels, including those of Webb and Belmont, and yet none of the principals or seconds concerned therein have been brought tojustice. N'ot only has nothing been done in this matter,but ludgiug from present appearances, we do not think that any thing will be done to put a stop to these disgraceful scenes, and violations of the laws. Hut recently we have Belmont shot through the hip,Webb shot through the calf, and now we have the climax in the death of M'Goy, who was beaten to death by Lilly. Yet nothing is done. Belmont rides about, Lilly is at large, Webb walks down Wall street quite unconcerned, whilst the other fighting characters congregate round porter houses and make arrangements f or another fight. In the fight between Sullivan and Secor, at Staten Island, the latter was arrested and held to bail before Judge Emerson. A day or two since his case was t ailed on, when his recognizances were forfeited, inn mm, w suppose, is me last mat win i>e heard ol the matter- As yet nothing has been done with Pulliva.ii. On the contrary he lias committed another outrage at ILirt's Is-land since, and on Monday was ai ling .ni'J abetting at the scene of the murder of M'Coy lie is still at large; and our officers of juslice see in disposed to let him remain so. So much for the fist fighters and pistol fighters, the l.i?i hi iii" the greater scoundrels of the two. Then then are the other class of murderers. There is the c is*nl'i'olt. Never did any man commit a more horrible or deliberate murder; and not only is he suffered to live, but every effort is making to clear him altogether, and the probabilities are that he will never be hung. An4 ill tins grows out of the'miserable manner in which the criminal laws are administered in this city; out particularly from the impunity with which rogues get free through the habeas corpus and its ^ross abuse. To such an extent has this abuse been ' Tried, that even the Governor was compelled to allude to il in his message. Yet this was all he did. lb- had the power to cause ihe removal of the guilty Judge, but he took no steps whatever to effect this desirable object. How, then, can we expect to see law and order triumph here ! The whole system is corrupt; and nothing will satirfy the public indignation but a thorough and lasting reform. Let us begin about it at once. D'yk Give it Up ??Commodore Perry, of the U. Navy, and Col Bankhead, of the IT. S. A., have not yet Riven an explanation of their conduct at the Ashl urton dinner. We do not expect any further explanations from the committee, because from the first they have exhibited a total ignorance of the manners ol gentlemen. But Com. Perry and Col. Bulkhead Hre American officers and gentlemen, and they ought, for the sake of their own character and the country whose commissions they bear, to explain by what mysterious process it was that they acted so when the health of their Commander-inChief was drank in the presence of Lord Ashbtirton and f ord John Hay, distinguished foreign functionary-. If they come out directly.it will save a variety of paragraphs that will appear in all the country papers in relation to their conduct; because the |>eople will not give this thing tip. Chiks ok rnk Woindkd.?Jonathan Roberts, late Collector ot Philadelphia, comes out in the Wall str-et papers, in full blast against Captain Tyler, because he has been removed from office. He calls it an txposi, and it is a very amusing affair. Not the least interesting is the statement that the "New York Herald" was the first journal who intimated to Jonathan what his fate would be. This settles the accuracy of the information which we gave on that matter?and may do as a sample of all our intelligence. We shall notice Jonathan at our leisure. Now | thit th'' good work has bequn, \vr trust that Captain Tyler wiil no ahead. He ha* nothing to lose?but muc'; tn by decision and energy. When the Wings turned out in on' nutht over two hundred in tins rity, they took great credit for the moral sub limify of the act. Why do they deny the same meed to the Captain 1 Self Appointment.?Noah announce? last evening that the "T'nion," the second edition of the " Sin," is now uppointed the " official government journal" to Captain Tyler in New York. Tins appointment has not yet appeared in John Jones' sheet of inanity, but it ought to. Noah's announcement resembles very much the appointment once made of " Judge and Governor of Israel," by a company of blockheads on Grand Island. The difference is that Noah has got the shekels of silver in advance from the Post Office? on that occasion he drew upon the Hebrews throughout the world, but tbey protested his draft, and laughed at his impudence. Noah is getting older and sillier everyday he lives. Wr ippoint him the official Judy to the Herald in New York. Confirmed. A-sei dote of Mr. Webster asd Preserved Fish.?When Mr. Webster was passing through this city recently. Major Jack Downing called on him, beiri^ one of the few that did so. Mr. Webster enquired what all this noise was for, about the Ashburton dinner. Jack Downing explained, and told him tuat they were going to make Preserved Fish Mayor in consequence. Mr. Webster replied, " I) i ti id fifty votes on such an occasion, I'd give them I to Mr. Fish for Mayor; for he's the only on? mere that evinced a proper American feeling i 1'istou* and Cokkkk for Two.?We find in one : of the morning |<aperu yesterday, the following belligerent and >uiive card from Major Hopkin?, the ' irand Marshal in the late procession :? A Ci?o.?My attention Las been called to an article in that uilamouisheet called the Courier and Enquirer, of t!na morning, in which the following language is used ['hey (meaning the ladies in the twenty-six carriages) are in no wise to blame that we know of, if some dozen call loads of the abandoned did turn out with them." It would not be necessar) to notice the stigma thus attempted to be cust upon the respectable females who appeared in open can lages in the procession, under the immediate care and attendance of a committee of fiftyt wo of our most reputable citizens, were the character of that print as well known throughout the couutry as it is in this city ; but as it is not, I deem it mjr duty to pronounce the laugunge above quoted, as wilfully and maliciously 1 false, as r is cowardly. Not one cab was in the line of procession, either w ith or without females, as every person who witnessed the parade can testify. Moreover, orJers were given by the grand marshal to his aids not to permit any cab or carriage containing females to come into the line of procession, unless it had the appropriate badge, or were under the direction of one or more of the I i committee of fifty-tw o on carriages | This precaution was deemed necessary to prevent improper females from being brought into the procession by some of the Victoria party, who had previously threatened to do so. Having thus disposed of the iufamous aud dastardly libel upon the character of respect*! le females, 1 now ask the " fighting editor" of that vile print whether, when he wrote that despicable insinuation, he had no dorsal reflections concerning the flagellation he received I or an Insult which he offered to a respectable female in a l>oardijig house in this city, not so long Mince, nor so feeblv I administered as to have escaped either his memory or his 1 book. And I would farther ask whether he feels himself 1 in a condition, calf and all considered, to receive anot'ae'' i of e<|ti; 1 tenacity, which assuredly awaiti him for his | cowardly coluniny agMnst the chauicter of the ladies who, accompanied by their husbands and brothers, united I in that patriotic procession. JOSKPH HOPKINS, Grand Marshal. The gallant grand marshal does not s|>eak in | parables. His language is plain and direct. The allusion lie makes to Webb is significant enough. The story is this:?A few years ago, Webb boarded in Broadway, in a fashionable house, next door io the church at the corner of Rector street. On one occasion there, Webb very grossly insulted a highly respectable married lady of Philadelphia, the wife of Mr. Richards, one of the sons of B. W. Richards, Esq., of that city. Her husband happened to be absent at the time?but he soon was informed of the manners of the Colonel. He returned to this city, accompauied by his brother. He sought out Webb. He caught him one day in the Merchant's Exchange, and immediately went to work, and gave that gentleman one of the most elegant cow-hidings that any vagabond ever got who did not know how to behave in the company of ladies. It was attempted to be hushed up at the time, but the facts got wind, and it has been a sore point to " all the decency" ever since. Whether the ball in the calf has wiped out that blemish, we know not; but if Webb is fit for an honorable reparation, he has now a chance. Major Hopkins is a noble spirit?courage to the back I hone?and will Hot bluster for nothing. He is of the blood of the Revolution. His father was a celebrated hero of Rhode Island in the time " that tried men's souls," and he will not permit any person to attack the character of amiable and respectable ladies under his charge, without calling him to account. At all events, as soon as Webb is able to walk out, he will be called to account for his brutality. So he may prepare. He is in the hands of the Philistines at last. The Italian Opera.?We understand that some of the Italian troujx got up by Signor De Begnis, object to the engagement of Mrs. Sutton in the new operas proposed to be performed by subscription. Thev may do so if they please, but they will find themselves mistaken, [if they mean to show any proscription towards an artitft, who, certainly, pos- i sesses the best voice of any one now on this conti tinent We should think it would be better in the j end for Signor Seguin, or Signor Aniognini, to | forego all those little feelings of jealousy, that have i too often marred such projects heretofore. Some j of the lauies engaged, have undoubtedly good , talents, and a superior knowledge of music?but I none of them can compare with Mrs. Sutton in ' richness, volume, and versatility of voice The ' impertinent proscription of such a fine singer as Mrs. Sutton, will be resisted by the musical world? and it is idle for certain persons to attempt it any longer. Be wise in time. The Naval Courts Martiai,.? We have not con tinued the reports of the Naval Courts Martial, be, cause they reflect nothing but disgrace on the navy. Why Mr. Secretary Upshur should have iiermilted such miserable exhibitions of ill temper, small affairs, and even undignified ex/>o?(s to be made, we cannot understand. They are, certainly, bringing the gallant navy into contempt with the public every day. It is time to stop. Fashionable Arrivals.?M De Bodisco,with his accomplished lady, is now at the Astor House This excellent and worthy dinlomatist comes and goes without any notice?without any public dinner?yet he is the represehtative of one of the truest friends of the United States, and is himself connected by the dearest ties to a beautiful American. Commodore Hull, Major Barney of Baltimore, and N. P. Willis, are all at the Aslor House, which is now full of gaiety, gentry, beauty and fashion. Aprojm?We would advise Major Barney, the prtux chcvalicr of the age, to visit New Brighton next Friday. There is to be a beautiful ball there. Let him put on his best Boston cut, and proceed to ' uruu 1)11.11 ins ?i umc. i ne mines warn mm 10 get I up a pic ttir in the lovely Staten Island woods? a set | of tableaux vivatHs?or at least some magnificent thing of some kind. A special order. Respect this. There will be more delight at New Brighton than at Rockaway or Saratoga. 1 Staten Island Gaieties.?Coney Island is gone for ever?her glory is departed?and Governor Gil Davis should he put on half pay. Staten Island is now all the go. They have more gaiety?more life? ( more enjoyment?more balls?more drives?more ' of the dolcc far niente on Staten Island, than on any ' place under the broad sun nt present. At New ( Brighton, and all along the shelving shore, nothing < is heard but the voice of enjoyment. The Pavilion 1 is full of life and beauty. The young, the gay, and ' the beautiful dance every evening?and the philoso- i phers talk and settle the affaire of the nation, under i the cool shades, stately piazzas, and curling fumes ? of the Havana. Life is short?eternity is long, ] Think of that, ye children of nu n, and other nin- I compoops. t Singular Conviction fok Liukt. ?The otherday, 1 the editor of a atnall paper somewhere about town, 1 was convicted of publishing a libel on Thomas S. J Hamblin. This is a very funny movement, and the i Jury mu!<t have done it for n joke, to show the absurdity of all such charges; for the idea that it is possible to libel Hamblin it> point of moral character, is such an extraordinary noveltv, that it has ere ated a great desire to know who the Jury were on that occasion. French Navai. News.?The French razee frigate Circe, having received her necessary repaire at the dock yard at Gosport, has sailed for Franc*. The French steam frigate Gomer started from Norfolk on Saturday for Martinique. The Commissioners expressed a favorablt opinion of the locality and advantages of Norfolk, as offering a very eligi ble land-tall tor their steamers in the winter Meanness?Was not that mean, though, to pick a Methodist priest's pocket, take his pocket book, license, ordination parchment, travelling letters, See.

The Result ok the Prize Fight.?This subject was the town talk yesterday and the evening previous, and thousands applied at our office for copies of the Herald containing a description of the scene, long after the whole of our immense edition was disposed of. The vicinity of Water and Dover streets, where the body of McCoy had been conveyed to the house of his brother, was thronged by crowds of anxious and excited persons during the examination of the body by the physicians. Coroner Archer succeeded in finding the body about nine o'clock on Tuesday evening, aided by his active and efficient deputy Mr. Milliken. It was left at the house ot his brother during the evening, under tli# charge of the city watch, placed as a guard, and with the promise of the family that it should not be removed- In the morning, all sorts of rumors were in circulation relative to the men, and the friends of Lilly put a rumor afloat that he had died during the night of injuries received. This was done, as is supposed, to allay excitement existing against Lilly and his seconds. The backers of McCoy appear to be much blamed for not claiming the fight in the early part of it, when a "foul blow" was said to have been struck by Lilly, and so decided by the judges and the umpire. The mother of McCoy denies that she told him to " either come home the winner of the fight or a dead man " It was evident throughout the fight between the men, that McCoy was not a match for Lilly in any manner, except in game. He could not ward ofT the blows of Lilly, and had not sci?nce enough to get his own in, except in but few of the rounds ? Lilly was much the most active man of the two, and avoided nearly all McCoy's heavy body blows, by jumping back out of their reach. The neck of McCoy being his weakest point, was specially aimed at by Lilly in the fight, and the blows thus received were the immediate cause of his death, produced as it was by strangulation from blood Jproceeding from his mouth and nose, and some of the smaller blood vessels of the neck. In falling from his second's knee, on'the termination of the last round, there is no doubt that the ulood was forced'into his throat in such a quantity its to produce this result, which opinion is concurred in by the physicians who niude a post; mortem examination of the body. McCoy never expressed a desire to leave the ring, but appeared determined to win, or die in the efibrt. None of the principals have been arrested, and we understand that Lilly has gone to Canada. The seconds and backers of the men have also left the city, as well as others who were active participators in the fight. The investigation belore the Coroner took place at the Alms [House last evening, and the following evidence was elicited:? \Vm. McCoy, brother of deceased, sworn?Says that deceased was 21 years of age on the 24th of June last, and that he was a boatman by occupation. 1 went with the deceased at his request to the fighting ground. I took charge of a basket which contained a bottle of w ine, some bottles of water, some sponges to wipe him off with, and his fighting shoes. John McCoy, my other brother, was with us on the ground. The deceased lived with me at the corner of Dover and Water streets. The body was brought to this city in the steamboat Saratoga, landing on the North river side, up town. The body was taken from on board the boat by my direction, unci pin into a carriage, ana carried to my residence. 1 did not inform any officer that my brother had been killed. My brother wan trained by James Sandford, at Hoboken. Me was in training a month before the fight. Towards the latter part of the fight I heard Lilly say, "take him (thai is my brother) out of the ring." I also heard |>eruons outside of the ring say, "take him out of the ring, or he will be killed." My brother told me before going into the ring, " that he would not come [)iii alive unless he whipped the man he was to light with." A physician was on the ground; he anced the eyes of my brother previous to the last ound. He fought either one or two rounds after lis eyes were lanced. 1 do not know his name, lor where he lives; think it was in New York ; he las a gray head. 1 do not know whether he was employed or not. John McCoy, another brother of deceased, sworn. ?A number of persons came on board the Saratoga, the boat 1 went up in at lloboken. Lilly met my brother some time previous to the fight, and said that he would bet $>100 to sixpence that he could whip him. I do not know who were the jndges on the fight. My brother fought with Cheshire Bob, who had slruck him in the. city of Charleston some months since. This fig lit was on lied Hook. They had a fight in Charleston, where my brother got his arm wrenched. Lilly was there at the time, and urged Cheshire Bob to fight him with his arm so injured. My brother whipped Cheshire Bob at Red Hook. I believe he was forced into both these fights. Alexander E. Hosack and John R. Macomb, physician to the city prison, testified that they had made a post mortem examination of the body. He tn hp rir mn/>h KrinapH ita rfinnlarltr r?n the left side, the nose flattened upon the face and the bones broken?the cartilage separated from the bones,and the os nazi on the left siae broken, considerable extravasation of blood about the eye lids?on the body several abrasions of the skin, appearing as though inflicted with knuckles of a person or some blunt instrument The hps on the inside were much cut by the teeth, being the result of blows. There was considerable extravasation of blood on the brain, and the vessels on the surface were much engorged with blood?there was also considerable extravasation of blood under the dura mater?no other unusual appearances were observed there. In the cellular substance outside, covering the neck, there was also considerable extravasation of blood extending to the ear and on the neck?the trachte or windpipe was next examined, and on catting into it considerable bloody fluid was discharged? the examination was continued to the lungs. They appeared to be also filled with this extravasation ; the lining of the trachtcor wind pipe was of a dark red color, and the tubes also apparently very much engorged. On opening the. lungs, considerable quantities of extravasated blood was found in the air cells, the eflect of which would be necessarily to restrict respiration, and also to entirely impede it. The heart was perfectly natural. There were no fractures. The abdomen was examined; the stomach was extended with wind, and the intestines sjenerally were of a dark brown hue. The liver w as healthy. The abdomen presented no internal vidences of blows having been received from without. On opening the stomach it was found to contain but little fluid, and that had the api>earance >! blood and water. On opening the intestines in liflerent parts, the same fluid, blood and water, was ound in them, and in large quantities. The stonach contained no food. Our opinion is that the mmediate cause of death was suffocation from the nfiltration of blood into the traclnp bronchia^, and tir cells of the lungs. Jasper J. Golden sworn.?I reside at Dobb's ?erry, Westchester county. 1 am a Justice of the Peace. I was present at this fight; I heard it was to ake place below the aqueduct, south of Hastings' filiate. Previous to this I was told that the fight lad taken place,and that it was all over. I then went .o the place near where they were to fight, and met i number of |>ersons returning from the ground. I then attempted to rally the citizens in the vicinity, to attempt to stop the fight, some of whom appeared on the ground at the time, according to the directions. 1 waited until I saw the men stripping tor the tight, and I then made my way to the ring and addressed myself to Sullivan?told him that I was a magistrate of thecaunly, and commanded them in the name of the people of the State to desist from their intended purpose at the peril of the law. and commanded the r. to disperse. They observed that they were aware of r y doing my duty. I then lett the ring, and the fight commenced?I remained to see it. I had no officer with me to stop it, and as ihp imrtlPS W#*r?? ?n nnmfrniio I ^;.l ? 1 .. huiuviuub, 4 uau iiui pruccru any further in ihe attempt. A number of the men present were armed with clubs, and appeared to act a> sentinels. 1 saw the dead man carried from the ring and laid in the bushes near ny. I then obtained the aid of some citizens, in order to go to the steamboat to prevent them from taking oil the dead body. The steamboat* landed at a small dock called Booth's dock. The fighting groand belonged to Samuel Fleet. 1 saw the body put on board the steamboat Saratoga, and the boats all left soon after for New York. There were about three thousand persons on the ground. Enoch E. Camp, one of the reporters of the Herald, was called and sworn.?His testimony was similar to the report in yesterday's Herald, which formed the basis of his evidence. He stated that he attended in his professional capacity of reporter, and had he known that Justice Golden of Westchester, was present with authority to stop the tight, and been called upon to aid him, he should have complied with the request without hesitation. Chai xcey K. Wf.kks.?I reside in Putnam county; I do not own the steamboat Saratoga; she belongs to Mr. Ka\mond; I chartered her to .lames Sanford to go on an excursion, and afterwards 1 learned that she was to convey |>ersons lo the fight I then enquired aa to the legality of the charter for such a p-irjiose. Kuas Kinoston. the pilot of the steamboat Sara- I toga, .Ioskph 1'hknko,) engineer,) Wm.JH. Wilson, I captain, und Bevjamin Sinclair, barkeeper, were then calledt and having stated that they were pre sent at the tight, the Coroner held them to bail to appear before the Grand Jury as witnesses. Dr. Arch?r, the Coroner, then addressed the jury j and pointed out the following sections of the law ot this State relative to crime under which they were to render their verdict: ? "Section 4?The killing of a human being, without the authority of law, by poison, shooting, stabbing, or any other means, or in any other manner, is either murder, manslaughter, or excusable or justiabl homicide, according to the tacts and circumstances of each case. "Section 5? Such killing, unless it be manslaughter or excusable or justifiable homicide, as hereinafter provided, shall be murder in the following ] cases:? "1?When perpetrated from a premeditated dej Mgn to eflectthe death of the i>erson killed, or of any , human being. "2?When perpetrated by any act immediately dangerous to others, and evincing a depraved mind, | regardless of human life, although without any prei meditated design to effect the death of anyparticu: lar individual. I "3?When perpetrated without any design to ef! feet death, by a person engaged in the commission i of any felony." The jury summoned were as follows:?Anthony Compton, Dennis Brink. Stephen Harris, Adam BUckledge, Josi&hftussel, John Orser, John White, William F. Prout, Alexander H.Stewart, JohnS. King, William B. Todd, John S Whigam, Edward Weer, Peter Kinnan, Edward Gallagher, and S. A. F. Shonnard, comprising sixteen, who returned the following verdict :? I i iiiii me muij 1 nomas ?vic*_/oy came to ins cieatn I by blows ana injuries received in a tight with Christopher Lilly, in Westchester county, on the J 13th instant, in which John McCleesky, Win. Ford, James Sullivan, James Sanford, Henry Shanfroid,

Richard F.igan, John Austin, and Joseph Murphy were engaged as principals." We understand that Ogden Hoffman and Robert H. Morris have given as a legal opinion, based upon recent decisions of the Supreme Court, that underthe above statute all persons engaged as active participants in this fight are considered principals, and not accessories, and therefore are liable to indictment for murder. Pulled Again.?On Tuesday night, Prince John Davis succeeded in arresting tne notorious Alexander Panforth, an English thief, who has been arrested again and again during the last four years, for his participation in burglaries, thetts, and the picking of pockets; but has thus far managed to esca|>e harmless by turning State's evidence, and other trickery, which the blood-sucking, skinning | (H'ttifoggers that are posted about the Tombs knowso well how to put in requisition. It appears from affidavits that Alexander Danforth and a fellow, calling himself P. Mitchell, procured lodgings at ?he Commercial Hotel, 73 Courtlandt street, about 10 o'clock on Sunday night, stating they were from Norwalk. Mr. Sharp, the bar 'tender, put them to sleep in a room which communicated with a dark room, not occupied. This dark room had a window locking into an adjoining room, occupied by Mr. Caleb C. Baldwin, the foot of whose bed was directly opposite, and within reaching distance. The next morning Danforth and Mitchell were missing from the house, and it was discovered that Mr. Baldwin had been despoiled of his |>ocket book, containing $'85, which he had left in his pantaloons pocket, at the foot of the bed. when he retire J. In the room occupied by Danforth was found a memorandum that was in the pocket book, a razor, and two false keys, belonging to the Norwalk lodgers, who had also cut open a leather trunk which was in the dark room. Mr. Sharpe recognised Danforth as one of the lodgers that slept in the room. On his way to the Police, he drew from his pocket $37 in gooa money and $20 in broken bank bills, which he attempted to make way with, but was prevented by Davis. He then offered to make a present of the money to the Prince, saying he might as well have it as the sharking, loafing pettifoggers about the Tombs. Aleck was fully committed, and it remains to be seen how he will manage to get out of his present fix. Boarding House Thieves?On Monday, we mentioned the arrest of Freedom G. Newton for stealing a coat at the Commercial Hotel, and his participation in the robbery of a boarding house in Boston. We then slated he had a female acconv puce nameu .-loigau j. i^awson, wno naa manageu to roh several boarding houses in this city. Yesterday Mrs. Lawson was arrested by officer Sweet, and fully committed for stealing a quantity of silver spoons and clothing, from the boarding house of Lucy Ann Proctor, 139 Broadway. It ap|H.*ar8 that.on Saturday last, the woman,Lawson, called at Miss Proctor's boarding house, stated she was from Boston, and engaged board for herself and husband, who she said would arrive that afternoon with their baggage. She then complained of fatigue, and laid down in a room which was shown her, but got up shortly before noon, and went out saying she would be back to dinner. She did not return, however, and it was found that she had helped herself to the above named property. Mrs. Lawson was committed to the Tombs to keep company with her partner Newton. Prigging a Tog.?Yesterday morning one Conrad Woldon, was arrested dressed out in a complete suit of clothes worth $'25, belonging to Mr. Henry Hubeler, of 153 Cedar street, who testified they had been stolen from him the previous evening. Woldon was obliged to dofl his ill-gotten toggery, and then locked up in the Tombs. Disorderly House. ?Mr. David Stevens, of 145 Duane street, and Peter G. Vandenhoof, of 21)7 Mercerstreet, yesterday made affidavit at the police, iiiiii wiuiam wan Kepi a disorderly nouse ai ino. 147 Duane street, a resort for drunkards and tiplers, and where music and dancing was kept up all night, and sometimes on Sundays. Wall was arrested, and required to give bail^to appear at the Sessions to answer. Vkry Suspiciots.?A loafer named Dan O'Connor. was found in Church street on Tuesday night, with a trunk in his possession, and brought in. Yes terday he was committed on suspicion of stealing it, because he could not account for its possession. Female in Breeches.?Some time last week a young girl aged about 14 years, named Caroline Foster, decamped from the boarding house of Mre. Clark, 164 William street, after rigging herself up in a suit of clothes belonging to one of the male hoarder-*. On 1 uesday night, officer Stokely arrested the romantic young Miss in pants, in the streets, and brought her in.

One amongst the incidents of the anniversary just past, which certainly showed the mail's agility, was the fact that a personage on board the steamer Pocahontas, on her way to North Point, on the 12th, dropped his silver snufl-box overboard. He quickly leaped over after it, head foremast, made a briel sub-marine excursion, and in less than no time arose from the deep, foaming and spouting like a |K)rpoise, with the snuff-box in his mouth?thus rescuing i* at the expense of his hut and umbrella. Our American Theatre, Front street, is destined, I think, to have a prosperous season. Last evening it was well attended. There is hardly as establish tnent in the United States, that can compare with it for neatness and beauty since being refitted. Booth never played better. He has become a new ^tar. The entire company is decidedly the best we have hud since the palmy days of Wood and Warren. Your country readers are informed, that in visiting Baltimore now to make purchases, (those of them who are merchants) they can be entertained with the very choicest theatrical amusements. The German Catholic fair is yet in operation. The ladies have succeeded very well. They are smiling creatures, and should b? most liberally patronized. Business is still gradually looking up, and pro mises ere loug to nourish as in times past. The stores and offices that had been vacated, are occa- i sionally being taken. The signs of the times are certainly better. We have at present the falling of ! a most refreshing rain. 1 Yours, Roderick. Philadelphia. [Correipouiteuce of the Herald.] 1 Philadelphia, Sept. 14. | The Herald to-day, containing an account of the i shocking and disgusting collision between two ! brutes under the title of gentlemen of the fancy, was sought alter and read with the greatest avidity, by men too, who would rise from its perusal and de- J nounce the paper for publishing it I saw one moral 1 one who, after running and sweating for six or eight squares to procure a copy, sit down and literally devour the whole account without taking time to breathe ; and alter finiseing it, denounced the |>a- 1 per for publishing it, in the bitterest tone. Such is modern morality and consistency in Philadelphia. Mr. Collector Roberta this morning publishes the correspondence letw;een him and the Presfdent, touching th? cause of his removal from office. This cause is as was long since announced. The President wished certain subordinates in the office, who were friends of his opponent, Henry Clay, fto be re- , moved,to make room for an equal number of friends | of himsell. Considering that the number he asked was ! lessthan a moiety of the whole, his requestdoesnot seem unreasonable. The particular anxiety to see the correspondence consisted as much in a desire to ^ know who were the unfortunate gentlemen who d were to go out,and the fortunate gentlemen who were were to take their places. As to the matter which of the parties wrere right and which wrong, few 8 have altered their minds from a perusal of the cor- C respondence. The friends of the Collector think he t was right in holding on to the last. And the friends r of the President think he was correct in turning him out the first opportunity. 1 Our wholesale market in produce is dull, and flour 0 and grain a shade lower.

The department sent to the Bank of America, >e Merchants and the Bank of Commerce, to solicit them > take $1,250,000, which was refused. John Ward, Esq., ho was the agent in the negotiation of the previous sum f $1,600,000, obtained some time since, at 2} discount,then rent to Washington to endeavor to obtain the control of le stock; or, at least, the refusal of it until after the next oat from England. It is rumored in some quarters, that, otwithstanding all the ill temper and bullying manifest n tht> ntho.r Ridf* nf thn urntar thui tpmnt tttinn nf n ITnitml tntes Government Six per cent Stock will yet be too :rong for them, and enough will bo found to take up the mnll nmoiint offering. The next boat will throw more light pon the matter ; she it due on Monday next , aiid if the rokers can amuse the department until that time they will, htain the advantage. This has probably been the came of ic delay in issuing the new Treasury Notes,none of which ave yet made their appearance. There is more demand ir them on bank account for investment. The operation f the cash duties causes them to be in deitand for that arpose, when they are low enough.to make it an object to urchase them rather than to pay money which ii now arcely the case. Many look forward to a decline, as the 8.000,000 to come on the market will make $15,000,000 aligether outstanding, and under the present extravagant trifl'the customs will fall off. The notes, at this season of iu year, are greatly inademand as a medium of inland exliange for which purpose large sumi are absorbed. The failure of the Amercan Fur Company it a matter of reat regret and sone surprize. The very high mordl and lercantile standing of Ramsey Crook, Esq., however, is a 11 a ran tee that the best will be done in the premises. That cntleman has left for the lakes to look aAer the affairs of le concern. The capital of the company is $300,000* irgaly owned in Saint Louis. The general causes of the jlure were losses upon furs shipped to England last year id the previous one. The present year the business has ielded a profit, but the property being locked up and lia ilities falling due, caused the Kteppage. Wildes Pickersill & Co., are creditors ;for $119,000, but have fur* In and more than sufficient to cover the amount. The condition of public and private creditin the United tates is disasterous in the extreme to the casual observer, he destruction of the system of credits must, however, ilieve labor from a most enormous taxation ef the most :structive character. The mere imposition of tax**, )wever onerous they may be, for the support of a governent, can never seriously affect the prosperity of an inistrious people. When, however, those taxes are accominied by the auxiliary demands ol a host of bankers and iurcrs who have added 110 wealth to the nation, but have ihaujted ita hearts bloed through the specious pretence of edit loani, it becomes impossible for ta country to adince in national prosperity?on the other hand the seeds utter ruin are planted. In the hiitory of former ages we ay find instances analogous to the present state of affair* jw existing in this country. In the latter ages of the, Roman Empire the province* ere subjected to the most onerous taxation. As thepronce* were generally unable to meet these impositions, ey were obliged to borrow at interest. Interest was en to communities at the samc.'exhorbitant rate as to inviduals. No Roman province was free from the most lerou* public debt ; and that debt was far from opera ing ke the same engagement contracted,' in .modern States; r which, as the creditor is thrown into the power of the btor, they olten add considerably to their strength, and the number aud attachment of their dependents. The ince in this latter case borrows from a subject or om a stranger. The one becomci m t . a subject, and e other le-s a stranger. But in the Roman provinces, ie subject borrowed from his master, and he thereby >ubled his slavery. The overgrown favorites and weal;y nobility ol Rome advanced money to the provincials j id they were in n condition both to prescribe the terms tho loan and enforce the payment. The province* oanetl at once under all the severity of public impoii>n, and the rapaciousneas of private usury. They were errun by publicans, larmrrs of the taxei, agents, concatori, usurers, hankers, those numerous and insatiable idles which flourish in a burthened and complicated venue. Theie injudicious and heavy taxei in the Roan empire were a main cause of ita decay and ruin. In our own timei, under the stimulating causes which rang into existence about 18-iS, all classes and all gradoa government, Irom Congress down to the smallest towns the remotest counties of new made States, increased eir expenses and enhanced the burthens on the people, lie towns and counties squeezed money from the people rectly. The cities got larger amounts indirectly in the rm of loans. The Slates increased the sum by using the me form of obtaining it; and the federal government ing another form swelled its receipts to the enormous m of *,/>0,000,000 in one year, and Congress projected ipenditures commensurate with those receipts. All oae gradations ol debt in different forms were heaped on the same people for tho uses of Hilfi rent forms of a tnplicaled government. The debts swelled to an exnt which disabled the peopl* from paying even tne inrest from their loans. Recourse was then had to the ealthy and ovargrown nobles of London,who,like those % i
