I IIPORT Y.VT PROM WASHINGTON. Great Movement contemplated by President Tyler?Plan of Settling all the Open Quent Inn * of tilt Day, We have intelligence from Washington of the most important interest to the republic, and to foreign nations?more so than has taken place in many years. This intelligence comes to us from such a quarter, and in such a shape, that we place the greatest reliance in its accuracy, and have the most sanguine hopes of its success. We learn that John Tyler, the fearless and honest Chief Magistrate, has a plan in contemplation, by which me currency?the tariff?the public lands?distribution?assumption, and all the financial questions, connected with the general and ."Sat governments, maybe finally presented to the next Congress, and forever settled on the most | stable basis, and most just and honorable principles, i to all interests and all parties. During his sojourn in Virginia, Mr. Tyler has frequently contemplated thi6 grand project, and lie has act on foot measures to collect information on the different points, so as to enable him to present the plan at the opening of the next session of Con Kress?or percnance he will call the new Congress on the 4th ot M irch next, and present it to that body, fresh from the people. Several of the leading ideas of this grand plan of ettlein-nt have been divulged to us?but they are not sufficiently matured by facts and other evidence, so a. to enable us to present them to the public in th'"ir proper habiliments. We shall do so as soon as possible. From this pioject it is very evident that John Tver understands his singular position, and the great ' crisis in which Divine Providence has placed him in 1 the m ivements of this republic. If his purposes and his nob.c views are supported by the country and Congress, we miy see, in less than nine months, a I National enrrenev established without the dangerof 1 a corporation?the credit ot broken down Slates restored?the resources of the General Government applied to proper uses?the tariff and public land questions sett led on just principles?trade revived?manufacturers fl mri'liing?and the whole country a smiling garden. To-morrow we shall enter more at length on this plan, and develope some of the beneficent views of the President. In the meantime, let the politicians toil, and the office beggars abuse?the President will do his duty to his country?to his God?and to himself. We have an honest man?not a party chief?for the President of the United States. Got.qk and Gouging.?Mr. Gouge, in furnishing what he calls "commercial mutter," for the Morning Post, takes one day from the columns of this paper, tab e* of compilation, and on the next, at tempts to criticise them. We recently gave, exclusively, a comparative table of the exports of the Unt J States fur a series of years. In the table for HI!. we -til-1 togctiier Rye and Indian Meal, m 1*1 ig si M >,9J2. In tui? he al ledges we made an error oi figures, o.mtied Indian Meal. Fm 11 'lie m .-reiriciouj reputation Mr Gouge had acquired, much was expected (torn him, when he engaged himself with the New Era, but this exI 1 i r n li.v- been singularly disappointed. A recent 1 di o.i--, ui between him and the Courier man, on ' the abstract nature of currency, was the most ' absurd . ad idle with which the community was 1 ever butt,i Last year the subject was worn thread 1 bare in i he London papers. These tyros have not 1 yet goi as iar as those papers started from. We ' remember Mr. Gouge, some years since, in the I Philadelphia Gazette, when he filled his pajwr with ' long insulting articles, containing a quantity of facts without order, classification, point or application. They reminded us very much of the 1 schooners which it is said are manufactured down east, several miles long, and, when a purchaser appears, a quantity is sawed olf to order Two ends are then put in, and it is fit lor sea. First Democratic Movement for the Presideni y?The Ward Meeti.xo.v?The Ward Meetings to be held to-night will determine the relative Strength of Van Burenand Calhoun among the democratic politicians in this city. Great interest isfeh on this point?and it will I* a question applied to every man?as candidates lor any office. It is generally supposed that the ( ilhoiin men will make a great rally, but that the Van Buren men will defeat them by superior intrigue, mystery and concealment The best policy i<?r the Calhonn men is to declare openly their hand ?nd to meet the crises at once, by putting down all secret elufut* and clubs. I'uLicfc Kkfokh ?There is a very good article, mixed up, however, as usual, with a considerable .juantity of the prejudice, illiberality, cant and hy porrisv of Greeley, in the Tribune of yesterday, in tavor of police reform. This article upj>ears to have been elicited by the tragical results of the recent horrible prize-fight. It will be utterly impossible, however, as every reflecting man must see, to effect any reform in the present miserably inefficient police system in this city, unless all political |?r'ies unite in an earnest, friendly effort, for the attainment of this great object. All parties must co-operate unanimously as Iriends of the city, of the country,of justice and the laws. And if any thing can unite our citizens, and induce them to forget political differences, surely this movement can?a move nient which has tor its object the preservation of tneir lives, and properties, and the peace and good order of society. The murder of McCoy, about which so much ! just indignation has been properly expressed, is not, I it should ever be recollected, the only recent atrocious act, which demands a thorough and efficient reform of the police system. That murder, peculiarly appalling as it was, does not exhibit in greater or more glaring characters, the demoralization ol society, and the inefficiency of the administration ot the laws, amongst us, titan did the murder o1 Cilley, or the bloody duel between Webb and Marshall Yet, certain of those very papers which express such eloquent denunciation against the pugilist, who has slain his fellow-man, are most politely and charitably silent respecting the crime of the duellist! Even Grand Juries, incredible as it may sound in the ears of the friends of justice and the law?even Grand Juries seem to favor this distinction, and wink at the " honorable" murderers. The open violation of the law perpetrated by Webb, lias been before several Grand Juries, and besides other influences, that of Governor Reward has been exercised in order to prevent any action lrorn being taken for the vindication of the supremacy of the law, invaded by that act. If we are to have a reform, let it be a reform that will reach Wall-street, as well as Ann-street. Let it be a reform that will tell upon the gamblers and murderers in Wall-street, as well as in the lower haunts of drunkenness and crime. We do not want a system which will ensure the punishment of the vulgar prize-fighter, whilst gentlemen brokers und assassins are permitted to strut abroad with impunity. We want such an efficient and i>owerfii' administration of the law, as will detect and punish offenders against the i?eace and safety of society, wherever they inay be found, to whatever grade they may belong, and by whatever influence they may seek to shield themselves from the just consequences of their crimes. And, as we have already said, to obtain such a system, the neaceable, the orderly, the patriotic, the good and loyal citizens of all parties must unite in one vigorous eflbrt. The time has fully come for such un eflort. If the startling admonitions which the community have recently received, be now neglected, does it require a prophet, or a voice from heaven to predict that ere long, the duty, now so clearlv indicated, will he again pointed out, by some far more extensive and terrible catastrophe 1 | Boz's "Notes on America."?Among the letters written by Boz to the littratcurs and his toadies in this city, and which have been received per the Great Western, is one to Major Jack Downing, another to Clark, of the Knickerborker, and a third to Geo. P. Morris. These three epistles are,it seems, couched in pretty much the same strain. We shall endeavor to procure one of them for publication in a few days, but in the meantime, it is not difficult to anticipate the nature of their contents. The burden of Boz's viturperative epistles seems to be abuse of Bennett?an individual who, according to all accounts, endeavored to do more honor to Boz than any other person in these regions, by getting up the famous and never-to-be-forgotten " Boz Ball," in the finest style, and equalled only by the Pickwickian originality, elegance, and genius of Boz's novels. We understand that in his letter to Major Jack Downing, or Caleb Quotem, who corresponds with all the world and the Emperor of China, Dickens requests him to send Bennett and Benjamin over to England to effect the assassination of Sir Robert Peel,fur the sufficient reason thai no two ncrjniu pan at Iinmsni lui InnnJ in England sufficiently hardended in iniquity to accomplish that deed ; the epistle closing with?" Kate sends you all sorts of love !" We hope that Major Jack Downing will go to work instantcr and catch the two savages thus indicated and transport them to England on the remarkable mission to which they have been called by Boz. II Major Jack should happily by this operation make money enought to pay the $60,000 he owes to the Baltimore Life and Trust Company, some persons would be considerably rejoiced at the result. Seriously, however, this work of Boz in America will be a curious production. It will show that the miserable, ignorant, conceited toadies who surrounded Mr. Dickens during his sojourn here, have given him the most incorrect and distorted views of American society, and that Boz in consequence knows just as much about it as any of the fleeting tourists who have travelled for a month or two in the States, and returned to Europe without a single accurate idea respeclingAmerican manners or American institutions. Ex-Conrixs.?We have, at present, several exConsuls in this city, who are earnestly endeavoring to stir up the elements, in order to ride into something or other. Mr. Grnnd has recently returned from some place in Germany with the purpose of inquiring into the reasons of his rejection bv the Sen ate during its late session. He will blow up the whigs. Mr. Carr, also, has returned, and seeks to ferment a war between this country and the Bey of Tripoli. Softly, softly, gentlemen, if we can procure you a snug birth in the Custom House at 91000 or 92000 a year, will you be quiet, peaceable, contented citizens? Meanness.?The Philadelphia Ledger, and several of the southern papers,have had the meanness to copy without due acknowledgment, the intelligence received by us by the Great Western, and forwarded in advance of all the other papers. This is not the first, second, or third time in which the Ledger has been thus guilty. In the present case its conduct is particularly mean, as sent the news so much in advance of the other papers. We have no idea of suffering such ingratitude to pass with impunity. News Movement in Boston.?It is said that Harnden <.V Co. intend starling a news room on an extensive scale in Boston It is to be located in the Merchants' Exchange, a magnificent new building, nearly finished, in State street. Such an establishment has long been wanted in that city. With eve y facility fornews, with steam ships, sailing ships, ind railroads, running to every point of the com>ass, it is strange that no news room has ever >een started there. There is a reading room in that ctty now called Toplift's, but it is not worth a button, and cannot lie called a news room. It would be much better in a country village than in Boston. It is conducted with little energy, and less enthusiasm, and the merchants of that city will have reason to feel thankful to Harnden Co. for establishing rooms worthy of their support?a place where they can learn that the world wags daily. We would not have such a reading room hs that ot Fophff s in this city. We would not have a room conducted with such a small quantity of spirit. It Ims been in existence for upwards of fifteen years, and is the same now as when first opened. It has not advanced with the progress of intelligence, and never will be a bit better than it is at this present moment. What nonsense it is to support such a concern Yet the proprietor thereof has become wealthy When Harnden Ar Go get their room open ihe world will know what is doing in Ronton and not till then. For Congress?The Ward meetings of the Democrats to-night, to select delegates to nominate candidates for Congress in the several districts, will be accompanied with any given quantity of rio', rowdyism, broken heads and bloody noses, full ^ particulars of which will be found in the Herald ot to-morrow. The contest in the 6th, 7th, 10th and n 13th, is between Purdy and Maclay, the former ot u whom will, in all probability, be selected by the de- a legates chosen. tl In the 8th, 9th and 14th wards, the friends ol j Moses G. Leonard and John McKeon test the mat- r ter. Leonard will carry hiB own ward, the 9th, almost unanimously, and most probably the other |, two. McKeon is too much of a political demagogue c to carry the feelings of the people with him- He 0 was taken up before merely by chance. 1 In the 11th, 12th, 15th, 16th and 17th, the tight is 1 between the friends of Fernando Wood and Cli J Moore. In the 17th we understand that John J e Roosevelt intends to make a brush?if so, he will be brushed out of political existence. u In the 1st, 2d, 3d, 4th and 5th, the Whigs have v such a majority that the Democrats will have to persuade some man to matte a stand, and allow himself to be abused for the honor of the thing. n Great fun about these days. J Westward.?Sir William D. Stew- si art, the celebrated traveller and boar-hunter of the g Rocky Mountains, does not depart till next spring for his prairie haunts in the west. ti Before his embarkation in England for this conn- ? try, he had just returned from a journey in Russia, and the rapidity with which he passed froni Sr. Pe- c tersburgh to New York would astonish the people ot d the last century, although no novelty to those of the present. In his last journey to the Rocky Mountains, ^ Sir William discovered traces of the Welsh lan- <5 guage and customs, which had been planted on the ti North West coast by some shipwrecked Welshmen, k Ion? nnterior to the discovery of this continent by '' Columbus. The solution of this mystery will be quite interesting. Members of Congress for the Lower Wards.? There will be a great competition among the whigs for the nomination of Members of Congress from the first, second, third and fifth wards. Whoever is no- ^ minated will be elected, hence the warmth of the ? contest. Alderman Underwood is a candidate, but ^ lie can do the State more service in the Common Council, by endeavoring to give us an efficient |>o- |)( lice. Aaron Clark is also a candidate; he, how- jever, would make a much better Mayor of the City, ^ if it were possible to put him in that office. Mr. Tollman is also proposed,but of him we don't know much. The best man by all odds is Mr. Phcenix? he has suffered more in pocket for the benefit of the fc whig party and to no purpose, than any other mem- ar her of it. Me is a liberal and generous man and * would be a good Congressman from those wards.? We trust he may be nominated. ty Another New Paper.?We understand that ano- th ther new Tyler paper is projected, to be conducted by N. P. WiLis, T. N. Parmelee, Dr. Alexander Jones, and Timothy Pippin. Mr. Parmelee is to th manage the politics?Mr. Willis the literature and h< fashion?Mr. Pippin the business reports?and Dr. ^ Jones will advance the capital and conduct the general nusiness of the concern. There will also be or two or three reporters engaged?and altogether it >v will be a strong team. M N. B. If they have not otherwise made arrange- ca ments?we will execute the presswork, payable, in al eash, on as reasonable terms as any other estab* ^ . . fiU lishment will. We have no doubt this project will 8() succeed better than Beach's evening edition of the pe Sun, alias the penny Union, including Noah and his ?e tail, as long as from this city to Mount Carnel and 1,1 back. po ^^ Again in the Field.?We understand that Robert Hoe, the ingenious machine manufacturer, is hi: again in the field of industry. Under the pressure of the limes, and the screws of the Butchers' and Drovers' Bank, this house was shut up a few weeks ni{ ago. The click of the hamer ceased. But it seems su that an English manufacturer, more liberal than a be bank, acquainted with the Hoes, purchased the |,r whole establishment the other day, which was sold A under execution. They have placed the Hoes in w their old establishment, as agents and managers? j)( and from the industry and integrity of the brothers, m we have no doubt their latter days will be far hap- Hi pier and more prosperous than their former. See the holy book of Job for the authority. Theatricals.?A good deal of discontent is be- ee ginning to be senerated amongst the small penny-a- wi liners and the petty actors around the different theatres, about the movements of Celeste. They conaider her us a species of splendid monopoly in theatrical business. Her engagement at the Bowery Gi will, undoubtedly,injure members of the lower order st< of the profession,and it is quite possible that theymay get up a very respectable opposition to her in some of the small papers. We shall see, however, how je these discontented elements will operate. In the ? meantime, we advise Celeste to be very careful how she gives credit to any manager of any theatre in 'ei ,u' u.j /'_! a i ij i 1 i a I iui9 tuuimjr. nuu. i/cir?w: miuuiu nave ner castl every night after playing. We understand that Mr. Booth left the Bowery Theatre in consequence of c 1 not being paid his salary. These are hard times? m short payments and hard cash are the only appropri- ag ate principles of action. P? ed Botchrky in China.?We find the following pa- 0n ragraph in the London Sun of the 3d inst., relative to the last battle in China Arrangements were made for an attack in three columns, two of which were gallantly led by Sir H. Cough and Sir W. Parker in person. Nothing C< could exceed the bravery of the troops. They contrived to surround the Chinese, and quite bewildered them The carnage was dreadful, being more a butchery than a battle. Ignorant of the laws of civilized warfare, the poor creatures knew not how to surrender, and were massacred. Not less than j), a thousand of them, including a great number of Mandarins, were killed, or drowned in the canals : whereas ol the British troops only three were killed T and twenty-two wounded. The encampments, and th such of the buildings as had been occupied by the . enemy, were burned, aid the grain magazines a thrown open to the populace, who speedily vmptied T them. so According to this, the English forces were gal- bt kintly led on to one of the most horrible butcheries on record! w Niblo's.?I'roirietor's Binkfit.?The caption will fill the gardens?for who so deserving ol a pub- y| lin rnmnlimpnt bb Wm VtKln . !?? ***?* ?> ?'" ? merits modest men are dumb."

At a meeting of the Democratic Convention, held c ast evening, Solomon Hillen, Esq., the present in- 9 umbent, was nominated for re-election to the ( Sice of Mayor of the city of Baltimore.

Among the thirteen candidates out for Sherifl. is Nicholas Tracy, who was on the returns at the last lection?as clever a gentleman as ever breathed the ? u re atmosphere of old Mary land? who it is gene- 0 ally thought will be elected to that office. There * re others among the candidates equally clever, and * irhose turn will doubtless come ; but were I going i bet, I should risk on Tracy. His only fault is that e is a substantial whig.

Last night a mass meeting was held in the upper ction of the city, and a county ticket for the Le- * slature put in nomination.

It is believed that all lc le persons composing the ticket, if elected, " ould vote for the re-election of Mr. Buchanan S| i the United States Senate ; and yet it is generally | iderstood that the whigs of the county mean to irego the selection of a ticket of their own, id to cast their votes for this new ticket instead, ic ith the understanding that the "Incorruptibles" tc ill vote the whig ticket for county officers. 1 have m > idea that the "Incorruptible'" ticket in the coun- a for the Legislature will succeed, though it is not "l i certain that the whigs will not carry several of {"' eir candidates for office in the row. fV The Philadelphia Circus, on Walnut street, open1 with Otto Motty, last night, to a very crowded y iuse, tickets of admission being refused early in tl e evening.

It is rumored as a remarkable fact, that wheu the dil lerence between Messrs.

Very many foreign houses, German and French more particularly, are about closing up their business quietly, finding it impossible to continue to do business under the present regulations. The peculiar nature of business hitherto required large imports in the spring and fall. Many large houses would have invoices amounting occasionally to $200,000, coming in very nearly atjthe same time. Under the old system,these would be mostly realised before the duties fell due. Now such an invoice wotfld requ ire $100,000 cash to be paid onentry, a serious obstruction to largeoperations. The manufacturers, in hard money l?uro]>e, enjoy a real credit, which enables them to turn out any quantity of goods that may be wanted, but does not enable them to send their agent, con* signee or commission house 100,000 hard dollars, to pay the most exorbitant duties, under the circumstances, ever imposed upon any people. The goods, therefere, cease to come, or coming, are sent back,or to other markets. New York has beenthc great centre of this business; sixty per cent of all the imports, have come to this city heretofore* Of $137,000,000 imported in 1841, $76,000,000 came to New York, mostly through those houses who are now prohibited from doing business by tho late tariff. The trade of New Yi rk city in a great measure depends upon the imports. Its export trade is a consequence of the imports. Of the 3,000 carmen in this city, one half, at least, get their living by riding imported goods. All these people will lose their trade. Instead of a merchant in Pine street selling a case of goods, they will either not be sold at all, through the inability of the farmer to buy, or will go from Lowell over the Western Railroad to BufTalo, and so West. The trade of New York must sink at least onehalf inevitably under the tariff. A little reflection and eiaminatien ot documents would show this to be the case, ami yet there are not a few who are looking for the Increase of trade which was promised through the tariff. In the English commercial journals it appears that the veto of the late tariff by the President was hailed with as much, if not more, satisfaction, than was the treaty. It was considered as leaving a low tariff in operation, and therefore as affording an opportunity not only for greatly extending the commercial relations between the two countries, but of thereby leading the way towards the ultimate settlement of the stock debts existing between the United States and Great Britain. On this subject we make the following extract from the London Gazette of August 31st : ? Following up our remarks on the subject of the veto given by the President of the United States to the Tariff Bill, we again urge upon the Government of this country the propriety?the necessity?of taking advantage of the opportunity thus afforded for extending our commercial relations with America. The value of the custom of that nation is inestimable te this country-, if it can be purchased on terms of mutual benefit. The amount of our exports to the United States for many years, the number of our operatives employed in producing merchandise for that market, clearly prove tne extent of the advantage we derived from our connexion with our transatlantic al nua, wncn u remained undisturbed by commercial and financial diatreM, and uninjured by political dispute*. The contraction of our trade, and the amount of unemployed labor which reaulted from the interruption ot our relation* with America, show, if possible, more clearly the loss which we thus sustained, ai.d argue cogently in favor of the adoption of such a course of policy by the Government of Great Britain as may bind the two countries together more closely with the ties of mutual interest. It may be said that the financial embarrassments of America, and the bad faith which many of the States have exhibited in respect to their pecuniary engagements.must be a bar to any immediate increase of our trade with the United States ; and there is no small amount of feasibility in the objection. But let us examine the great first cause of this position of their financial attain, and there is little doubt that it will appear that the distress, the want of faith, and the system of repudiation, were produced by circumstances in originating which Great Britain had no small share. The period has, however, arrived when our own interests peremptorily demand that every exertion should be made by this country to open a trade with America that w ill enable that nation to pay us in the produce which it can so well afford, and which we so much require; and we sincerely trust that Sir Robert Peel will devote his attention to the formation of a treaty to effect so desirable an object, convinced as we feel that Parliament will unfailingly give its assent to the measures necessary to confirm such an arrangement. This is the true mercantile view to lake of the matter; and it is matter of regret that such anticipations of the business should have so soon been chilled and disappointed by the enactment of an arbitrary|and prohibitory tariff, which builds up a wall between the two countries,checks mc ieiumi </. "vimij aiuumi, nun mills inn mamci 01 tne United States farmer for hia produce. The tendency of the price* of all agricultural produce, particularly Hour, is downwards. A futile attempt ia now making by the western miller* in this market, to stiffen the prices, of flour here, by buying it themselnea; to hold, and a great deal is going into store. Such a ridiculous proceeding can only end in the ruin of all concerned. The hanks of the west will surely not be so preposterous a* to socond such a movement. The whole west is filled lo overflowing with the rich crops of the earth. A surplus exists greatly above the powers of the people to conwme; and without a foreign market to take off that surplus, prices must go to very low money values. The late news from England has been considered good. So it is for England and the English; but in no point of view is t Rood for this country. The harvest is full, and no demand for our surplus flour exists. It is kept out by English luties from England, and our own government has presented English goods from coming here in the purchase )[ produce for other quarters. The plentousness of money in England has not improved American credit, and it it improves the consumption of cotton sufficiently to take ?ff" some of the surplus, und stay the falling price* in that article, it is all that can be expected. fiMlea sit the Htork Kirhangr. $1000 NY Slate ti's, I8T.7 R9la 25 ?h*s Mohawk, I5J< 2<HXI Kentucky fi's. 1871, 77 42 ?J? . ? 2100 Illinois 6'*, 1870, I8K 27 d?
