NEW YORK HERALD "?w Vork, Monday, October 3, 1844. Sre.vM Ship Columbia?This noon this steauv will be out Ratteen days. We shall probably rt ceive her news to-morrow morning. It will be l< the 20th ult. Look for au Extra Herald. Kevlvnl Of Business. There is a positive revival of business about these Jay ? Whatever be the cause, the fact is certain. IJ large specula live !ra Is, connects I with banks, corjioralious.or weighty wholesale establishments, this revival may uot be parcel; eJ, but the movement is Jaily felt in the necessary, use ful, active, hanJ-to mouth branches of trade, in every ulass ot society. In our own business, the newspaper printing line, w t know the fact, ui I make the following statement, extrac' e l by our cashier lrom our cash book JS'xt Wr.isir RsrnrTt or thk N.

Our regular issu daily and weekly, independent of the vast quantities u extras we throw oft', is over THIRTY THOUSAND,beiii| TEN THOUSAND overthal of any otho paper in Nr. York, and circulating too, among the best quality of bu sineas men, the steady dealers of all rauks, bankers, finnn ciers, merchants, farmers, and professional men through out the Union. This is our newspaper business. Our General Printing Establishment, entrance 97 Nassau street, has been urgu nized only since last January, and has been conducted b\ Mr. Joseph Elliot in a manner, that in beauty of execu , tion, and elegance of typography, equals, if it does nol outstrip, every thing of the kind iu|the country. This es tablishment is now printing three periodicals, the " Lun cet," the "Artist" anl the "Athueneum," besides a vasi quantity of general work in books, pamphlets, cards,hills &c., amounting nearly to $1000 per week, all Cash prices and cash payments. Many now pieces of enterprise am projected, which will probably increuse the amount ol this branch of the estab ishrnent to $i000 per week?or $100,000 per annum?a sum nearly equal to the movement of the Herald establishment. These movements, equal to nearly $JJ6,000 par annum, have grown up lrom almost nothing since May l*t3A, by the exertion of talent, industry, tact, enterprise, and the selection anc employmentof the most competent men in every department, and at the highest salaries. These facts are the strongest indications of the progress and the revival of sound trade on a right basis?for if general trade be not prosperous, the news, paper or printing business must languish. Trade is therefore reviving in the right quarters, beyond the possibility of a doubt, whatever politicians maysay, or swear. It is positive and certain, and we have only to add to it, perseverance, economy, and sobriety, to make it the most prosperous age of the world on thi*|Side of the water.

Prospects and Purpoir*. It will l?e seen by tlie remarkable developments made by Daniel Webster at Boston, that the rece: t view< which we gave of the policy prospects of the Administration at the approaching session of Congress were correct to the letter. That [mlicy is wise, honest and patriotic in the extreme. Let us proceed with further views. Th ;re have been a great many rumors about removals and changes in the Cabinet, and new a| pointments in high places; but we doubt if any will take place until after the tail elections. According to present appearances, Mr. Weoster will retain his place in the Cabinet for some time longer; and il any early change takes place, it will be in the Treasury Department, owing to the peculiar unfitness'of Mr. Forward to fiil the duties of that office. It is certain that Mr. Cushing will not go in so long as Mr. Webster chooses to remain there. And we sincerely tru->t that the President may he induced by no one to attempt it, and that no clique, or party, or persons, ot uny kind may seek to drive Mr.|Web sterfrom the Cabinet so long as he thinks proper to remain in it, and exert his stupendous talents, as he has done, for the general good of the country, without regard to any party, clique, or set of men what rver. /ii any raie, wr nope ivir. weosier, Knowing the great services which he can perform for the country, will maintain his place and his proud position. Mr. Cushing may probably be|called on to exert his talents as Minister to France in the place of Mr. Cass, who has a desire to return home. Again?Mr. Webster will probably pass through this city in about ten or twenty days, when he may be induced to deliver a speech developing his views of the present state of parties and the political aspect of the country. II he does it will be one of the most brilliant efforts overseen or heard in this country from the lips of man. After this he will goon to Washington, to join his associates in perfecting' those great measures which are to be brought forward at the coming session of Congress, for the pacification of the country, and the general restoration of the credit and commerce of the whole land, still so lamentably prostrated. These views, and the recent developments made by Mr. Webster in his speech at|Faneuil Hall, were all shadowed forth by us a fortnight ago; although our statements were then flatly contradicted by the Wall street papers, which are now thrown as flatly on their backs as they can be by the position assumed by Mr. Webster. There has been going on in Washington, lor the last eighteen months, an extraordinary conflict? amounting almost to a little internal war?between a small clique called the corporal's guard, and Mr. Webster; but we presume this has ceased for ever, as the former party have been nearly demolished by the events which have recently taken place, and, therefore, we trust that Mr. Webster's path in the cabinet will be much smoother than it has been heretofore. The approaching*lections will revolutionize political parties and put a new feature on the movements of the Executive. From recent appearances, and particularly the blow?amounting in force to a shot from a paxhan gun?which Mr. Webster has given to the ultra whig party, it is very evident the great State of New York will go against the latter and there will be a general rout and scattering of j forces throughout the State. A great portion o. me whig party will go against the ultra whtgs, and many of those who are opposed to the present nolicv of I the administration will stay at home, believing truly that if th* ultra whigs had power, things would bo infinitely worse. The rflect of these changes will be felt ; ntf seen in the legislative body at Washington ; and the effect thrv will produce on Congress will render the next s-s-ion one of the most important that has ever been known in this country. The President will probably open the session with a message, in which he will shadow forth all those measures around which Mr. Webster, in his recent speech, has thrown so much light. The Colonial Trade, the Oregon Territory, the claims of our citizens on Mexico and other countries?claims which the power of the nation must be exerted to have settled?our internal affairs, a new currency, or some system by which the currency can be properly regulated, and a good system of exchange organised! the Tariff may possibly again be re-touched, for it requires a gTeat deal of re-touching, notwithstanding '" lister's admiration of it ; and beyond all ^ -"on of the public lands as connected \ f the States. Then there is i -dil and repudiation, oportance not only zhich it has on the d it is absolutely f several States, as from low to high, to look at the position in which they stand in thin relied, and to take some stand, to make some effort, some jKiwertuI movement, to aipeaway the stain, deeper than u wound, which at present dishonors r them so much. All these views, and these measures, will invest ' the coming elections, and the movements of the 1 '-eneral < lovernment, and the approaching session j of Congress, with the highest ini|>ortiince ; and we fully expect that Mr. Webster will treat fully on these matters when he passva through this city, in a few da>?. He desires most heartily to review the whole of the present slute of political parties in this country, and no where could he do it so effectively is in the great eity of New York. There are no Lowell calico coats or breeches with which to letter his gigantic proportions here as 111 Boston Never was there a time since the days ot Washington, wheu two or three men properly supported by the people, had the power and the diHjwsition to do t so much for the country, as at the present. We ! now possess an administration whose position we 1 nnit.monrl fk.l ? t? I... , li.nnan/l In ?! ? honestly. We see the position of Mr. Webster?we ' see the position of M-. Tyler?clear and well de* fined : and we see that they have, in an age of coru ruption, folly, intrigue, and villainy unparalleled, 1 kept a single eye to the national honor and national good, thrown all party considerations to the winds; 'r trampled on all petty political cliques, and rising far above all parties attained an elevation of moral grandeur that calls forth the spontaneous admiiation . of every honest man in the country. It is the first time in the history of any country that we see a President without a party, a faction, ; or u clique to enforce his views ; and guided only by virtue, honesty, and patriotism, in the pursuit of the public good. This is a sublime moral spectacle that israrelvseen in public men, and whilst we ho|>e for its continuance, we watch it with fear and trembling, as on it depends the preservation of sound morals, the religion, the integrity and the best institutionsof the country. The Report ok Mr. Webster's Speech.?The only report of Mr. Webster's great speech at Boston, on Friday last, that has been given, or that will be given to the public, was published by us early on Saturday morning This speech is given verbtttim, as Mr. Webster spoke it, with the respoises of the audience,and the cheers, Acc., rendering it a perfectly life like picture of what passed. The "Tribune" published a most shockingly garbled affair, which it had the cool impudence to call a report of Mr. Webster's speech. More than three fourths of the words in the Tribune report were the language of the Reporter and never spoken by Mr. Webster at all. We can prove this by the testimony of many respectable citizens who heard the speech, if necessary. But we will give one specimen, out of five hundred that we might give of the trash which the " Tribune "palmed off as Mr. Webster's. Mr. Webster had been speaking of the arrest of McLeod, and he went on thus, as given in the "Herald Troth reported in the Tri Mr. Webster') exact words as bune reported in the Herald.

(Laughter and cheers.) Who, after reading the miserable rubbish placed in the mouth of Mr. Webster, would ever place the slightest dependence on any report that appeared in the Tribune ngainf And the above is a fair sample of the extreme inaccuracy of the Tribune report throughout. Now, although this might be tolerated in a session's trial, yet when a man occupying ths position Mr. Webster does, makes a set speech on the aflairsof the country, the people want to know what were the very words he used?they don't want to read six orseven columns, three-fourths of which ate the reporter's own words, and not Mr. Webster's. The pretended report in the "Sun" was still worse, and both were miserable impostures?abortions. And it could not be otherwise. The " Sun" had no reporter there at all, and the Tribune had but one reporter, and he was wholly unacquainted with stenography. Now every one knows it is utterly impossible, without the aid of stenography, to re(?ort any public speaker accurately. On the con. trary, we sent two of the best reporters in the country there?men of great talent and great experience in reporting; they each took full notes of what Mr. Webster said, so thnt they did not losa half a dozen words in a speech of nearly two hours duration. It has been iironounced to be wonderfully accurate by all who heard it; and any one wanting a true report of that speech, can obtain it by calling at the Herald office, as we printed an extra number. Stkam from Bono*, a*d Stkam from New York.?The steam ship Acadia sailed from Boston on Saturday afternoon for Liverpool, with but twelve passengers tor Kngland. while the (Treat Western, which sailed hence last Thursday carried thirty. Thisshows that the Boston steamers cannot j.l. ,l- . vt _v -j. - -- | compete wiui in'- ?i<-w i>m Hirniiii-ni in paswn;rn? When will the owners ol (he Boston line end their steamers to this port! SciNBKY and SHIPPING IN MaINB.?We have lately received one or two interesting letters from the Kennebec, describing the appearance of that river, and the ships building on its banks. It has long been known that the Kennebec is one of the most beautiful streams of water in America. It runs from the Atlantic to Moose Head Lake, and meanders through a lovely country, with a cottage t here, a country "seat there?a ship vard at one point, and villages situated at u dozen different places on either side of that not very rapid running stream. It is navigable for sloops as high up as Augusta, a distance of fiftv-five miles, and large shipe are yearly launched at Pittston, a prosperous town on the east bank, below the seat of government. In going up this river, every traveller is struck with the beauty of the estate of Robert Gardner, ' K?j., on the west side, antl about twenty-five miles j from its mouth. It is more like the country seat of a rich noblemanjjof England, than of a republican gentleman of America?a country scarcely out of her teens. The grounds of this estate are tastefully laid out, and the dwelling is built of granite, and cost one hundred thonsand dollars. This manor adds much to the scenery around and about that point. Above, on the east bank, is Pittston, the enter prizing village. At this place there are now building two of the finest ships ever turned off from any yard. One of them, which is nearly ready for launching, is called the Sabattis, pronounced Sahbah-tis, und named after the Indian who gallantly guided Arnold and his army of choice spirits to Quebec in 1775, by the way of the Chaudiene. This ship is four hundred and fifty tons burthen, copper fastened, built of white oak, the greater part of which was hewn out nearly two years ago, and having been kept under cover till wanted for the ennslnielion rtf the Snbnltis became thoroughly seasoned. She was built by Mr. Haines, under the superintendence^ the Messrs. Stevens, to whom < and others she belongs. She is to be commanded by Capt. Cox, and is intended for the freighting busi j ness. If she become as famous among mercantile ] men for her good qualities, and her officers and crew j for tiieir seamanship, as the Indian,whose name she , bears, was among his tribe, it will doubtless be a ] matter of no small interest to her owners. But this is not all that was mentioned in our < letters. This last summer has been one ol some interest to Pittston. Near the spot where the above shin is on the stocks, is a mineral spring of a rare kind, yet not much known till lately. It has j been visited by more persons this eenson than any t previous one. It was frequented by General Bear- j born, and its waters are pronounced equal to those of Saratoga. It is expected that in future seasons i this spring will be a place of much fashionable re- J sort. We shall see. t All those who are fond of the picturesque had bet- J ter visit the Kennebec next summer. r The Financiers.?When will the Wall street financiers, who have relieved widows and orphans of nearly $16,000,000 of property in various compa- J nies, banks and trusts, during the last three years, be brought before the Grand Jury I Does any body * remember the Life and Fire indictments of 1826? r '271 Are the small financiers to be punished?but 8 the big ones escape I ^ Bursting his Breeches.?The Boston wits say, [ Mr. Webster, the steam-engine, has been wearing j1 breeches of Lowell calicoes for years?but he has J burst ihem at last?and scalded only a large quantity o of clay." jj In a Stew.?The whigs are in a stew with the ^ speech of Mr. Webster. Wall street was full of i groups discussing the speech all Saturday. It is a 1 bomb shell thrown into their camp?and will scat- [] ter them hither and thither. g ________a Celeste at the Bowery.?Model for Congress- ^ men.?We have forgotten to state that Celeste made f a speech at the Bowery last Thursday night. It is t( as follows:? js rin.ciTc. rominir ilnvvn to the foot-lifirhifl :?" Oh. how liappy I am to see you once more. Your prcaent kind- tc ness, and the recollection o! many, many pa?t larora, al- w mo?t checks my utterance. From the moment 1 began 0 iny prol< ssional career in America to the present hour, I -j have always found you the same to me?kind, generous, f< enthusiastic! Should 1 not then he grateful? Oh! yes, 1 am, indeed 1 am. Abroad or at horns, I have ever spoken p of th-i debt of gratitude 1 owe to a Bowery audience?a debt only to be paid with my life ! 1 am fatigued?I must ? take my leave. May happiucss attend you and yours s forever. Again and again, I thank you for this truly American welcome home!" To night is her benefit; she will make another c sjieech, which will be reported, word for word, by v our splendid corps of reporters. Celeste is a won- n derful creature. She appears in comedy to-nigbt. She has improved the Bowery?almost made a p, gentleman of Hamblin?and bids fair to clear 1 $12,000 in three weeks, by her great talent?re- p( markable versatility, and comprehensive powers? ei including tragedy, comedy, melo-dr&ma, ballet and ri oratory. Chatham Theatre.?The exertions, oalhs, hard nrovintr trr?>nf pvnpnfiifnrpo un/J rlnmn.vn111-.mr0Q nf P Tom Hamblin, only makes Thornc more cool, more y quiet, exhibit more generalship, and bring forth his ta hidden tact. e; The moment that Hamblin engaged Celeste and trip|>ed up the poor Park, Thome brought out Sin- r clair, the great antiqus in Italian and Scotish song, j,, but yet as fresh as a green old age can make him? (1I including La Compte, the danttutt? a corps of dan- jt cers?and other matters and things in general and in particular. The consequence has been that the Chatham is crowded nightly?while the Olympic is et so-so?and the Park gloomy. Nothing will do now V a days in theatricals, but variety, energy, prompti- si tude and character. This sustains Thorne. When Celeste leaves the Bowery, where will Tom Hamblin be I At the end of his line. ____________ O The Olympic.?Heavy. The Park.?Heavier. Vandenhofl has closed a Fl bad week. The Broughams begin to-morrow? What 1,1 will they be ? We'll see. Alas! poor Park, you are ^ behind the age. cc Musical.?Don't forget that Dempster gives ano- 1 ther concert to-night at the Athena-um Rooms,Broadway. He sings a song written by Epes Sargeant? 0f another by George P. Morris?and another by John vi Smith, Jr. Dempster is a beautiful ballad singer, bi and is fond of haggis. in Don't forget that Rapctti gives a concert at the R* Tabernacle to-morrow evening. The Rev. David in Hale will be present on a free ticket. Rapetti, An- 'la tognini, Martini, Rakemann, &c , go in a bunch. 01 It will be brilliant. Rapetti is a good violinist, and is fond of macaroni. ^ Don't forget that Signor de Begnis, assisted by the Scguins, will give a concert on Thursday evening at the Apollo Rooms. Good again. De Begnis is a brilliant genius, with great tact, and also is fond of 'p macaroni. L Don't forget that the Buttons, including Madame, her husband, and little daughter Emeline, who has J made her debut as a beautiful gem in music, will be (,| here soon to give a concert on their own hook, without aid from any quarter. Mrs Sutton will jjj sing Italian, German, French, English, Scotch, and tc Irish pieces?in srewis, ari<?*, songs, ballads, tee. si She is now in Albany, going to Boston, and will c< soon be here. She has travelled from Niagara Falls to Albany, singing all the way with extraordinary erlat. le Preparations for Winter.?We have obtained from Shepard ?fc Co., at Nott's stove warehouse, No. 242 Water street, a new stove for oar publication office, which, for beauty, neatness, economy, and durability, haanever been equalled. It is compact, sj elegantly finished ofl", and adapted forparlors, stoves, offices, school rooms, or halls. It is^called a " He- r' veberator," is constructed on a new principle, and t| is the most efficient and economical stove we ever si remember to have seen. By the heat passing from ' the top down one column to the base, thence up another column, the largest room can be warmed h to any temperature, from 30 deg. to 120 deg. All 'j those in want of stoves, had better look at this one c in our office before they purchase li City Intelligence Tin Common Council?Both Boards ot Aldermen meet thisevening at Are o'clock to talk, talk, talk, a'*>?t Ave hour* about nothing- Let item get at work at the hour, act and not talk, and the public will be batter satia&ed with their labors, Gentlemen of the Police Committee, how atout that refor n ordinance ?

There are a mber of excellent horse* upon the ground, and there w ill be two races each day lor the four days. Much excellent sport may be expected. Small Potatoxs.?The County Court will be convened to-morrow to try Justices Matsell, Parker, and Stevens lor discharging some few vagrants irumBlackwell's Island, a crime that has beeu committed by ever}' )>olice magistrate that ha* held office since the office was created. This is small business, and no doubt the tax payers will be pleased with this additional mode of grinding their notes on a (Kilitical grindstone. Enormous Increase or Ckimi-:.?From the lollowing calendar of indictments for the various oflences to be tried at the October term of the Court of Oeneral Sessions, which commences this morning, it will be seen that crime is most astonishingly on the increase in our city. And is it to be wondered at when development* of fraud and robberies perpetrated by men who have held public places and stood high in posts of honor and conAJence, are daily exhibited to the community. Is it to be considered astonishing when the public are robbed of their thousands by their public servants, w ho " step out" until the excitement has partially subsided, and having squandered their ill-gotten gain by extravagance and debauchery, return to the land they have robbed and walkthrough th-i streets of our city withoutjfearof arrest or molestation? Is it to be wonat tt-kuii nnr nulilip inititlltinni BP? rotihsvl nf ikoir im ans by men entrusted with the directiou of the funds for the general welfare of the stockholders, and many of the latter left pennilesssT The only wonder is that crimes of the magnitude below named are so few, and that our prisons are not overflowing with petty criminals, for such must they be classified when contrasted with those who rob a whole people and leave the widow and the orphan destitute of the means of life. The following is the list:? Grand Larceny, 30 Assault and Battery with Petit do. 13 intent to kill, 4 Burglary, 13 Misdemeanors, 9 Libel, 0 Embezzlements, 4 Perjury, 3 Riot & Assault 1c Battery, 8 Itape, 3 Disorderly House, 7 Forgery, 30 Bigamy, 3 Assault and Battery, 00 Kidnapping, 3 False Pretences * 37 Nuisance, 3 Violating Grave, 1 Conspiracy, 3 Manslaughter, 1 Highway Robbery, 3 Obscene Books and Receiving Stolen Goods, d Prints, 11 Duelling, 1 381 Of these one hundred and sixty-five were found by the Jrand Jury during the recent September term, and "(fit)leven cases were dismissed by them, making in all two lundred and twenty-two cases disposed of by the Grand iury during that term, including the one against Webb or duelling. Democratic and Whio Senatorial Convention.? rhe Democratic delegates of this senatorial district, meat it Tammany Hall on Tuesday, to nominate a candidate or State Senator. The choice is couceded as belonging o King's county, and, in all probability, John A. Lott, iresent member of Assembly lrom that county, will be lominated. The delegates of the city meet at Tammany tolight, to select thirteen from their number to represent he city in the convention that meets to-morrow. The Congressional delegates also meet at Tammany tonorrow evening for org nization merely, as they aftervards adjourn to such place us may be selected in their cspective districts to nominate a member of Congress.

Thompson, arrived yesterday in six tys from Campeachy, brings the latest advices, he Mexicans had not arrived off the port when the c . V. sailed, though they were daily d not hourly tpected. In the mean time, every preparation was t< nng made at Campeachy for their reception. The n jrts were fully manned, the guns sealed an'1 pat in d oner order, and the troo(w drilled continually. " Two thousand men arrived from the interior tne h ay before Captain T. sailed, and every thing beto- * ened a determination on the dart of tne Yucatans J make a vigorous defence whenever the attack lould be made. In additiou to the land forces, a c utsiderable flotilla of gun boats with cannon, ti f heavy calibre, had been prepared to aid in the J fence. 1 It was understood the Mexican force would not ave Laguna until the reinforcement had arrived J nm Vera Cruz. The8an Antonio had not arrived at Campeachy. A ship, su|iposed to be one of the Mexican steam- \ rs, was seen off Campeachy; the fort was not t lockaded.

The Artist, a Monthly Lady's Book, No. 2. Oc- , tober l>i42, published by V. Quarr?, New York, 64 Reade street, $3 per annum. The strong prepossession in its favor created hv the first number of this work is not only maintained, j but greatly enhanced by the second, which promptly appears with the month. Its embellishments are, i first, a beautiful rural view in a unique style of col I oring; secondly, an embossed plate ol dowers, col- j ored rather too highly ; and thirdly, a late view ol the Parisian fashions, followed by a dedication illuminated somewhat in the style of the ancient parchment manuscripts. The literary contents are slmoat exclusively original. The first article is entitled the "Out-uoor Artist," a very spirited translation from the French. This is followed by one entitled '' Grounds for a Divorce," by Epes Sargeant, which, like all of this writer's product ions, is 1 graceful as well as pointed. The " Haunted Fountain, a story of the Rhine," by James Aldrich, one ; of the editors of the New W orld, is scarcely less natural than romantic. " The Two Victorines, a tale of La Vendue," is a very superior article,to4>c j continued. " The Prose Poet of Germany," by I Park Benjamin, is a graphic and sentimental ' review, founded on the life of Jean Paul Richter. The poetry is by Park Benjamin, Mrs. Carrol, Baron Wilson, Richardson, Aldrich, Mrs. Eawards, Thomas, and others; and "FraPoco a me," is a charming piece of music from Lammermoor, by Donizetti. Thf. Artist is one of a series of new periodicals printed at the General Printing Office of the Herald, managed by Mr. Joseph Elliott, Printer; and we appeal to the best judges of typography in support of the pretension to its being printed in a highly elegant style ot that emulousart. The Athenaji m, isajournal of American Litera uir;, science ana rine aiis, ai annum. This is another of the new periodicals printed at the press of the Herald office, and it takes rank with the beat magazines in any country. It is embellished with a beautiful steel engraving by Dick, of the oily of Boston, Bunker Hill and its monument, viewed from the east. "Mizpah," a scriptural contemplation; "Learning,and the Resourcesol the Learned," are the first two articles, and the second is capital, full of classical taste. "Fort Braddock Letters," are replete with touching local history. The " Lamb-like Child," "A scene in the Valley of the West," " The Dead Letter Office." and a variety ol beautiful poetry, complete the highly diversified contents of this number of the Athenieum?not forgetting, however, a grand waltz by Beethoven, selected and arranged expressly for the work. It is edited by the accomplished Miss Horton, and is highly creditable to her taste and talents. It is published by Mr. William Horton, No. 2 Wall street, and single copies can be obtained at 12^ cents. In point of typographical beauty, this work may proudly compare with any extant: clearly showing how much may be done by dint of elevated private enterprize in rivalry of book sellers who have hitherto vainly supposed that they coujd enjoy a monopoly in every other class of publications, besides newspapers. The additional publicity given to periodicals by the active ugency for which the Herald office is undeniably renowned throughout the civilized world, is strikingly advantageous, not only to publishers, but to the fertility of the public mind, enriching as it does the common intellect with fruits of genius, which would otherwise be accessible only to the accustomed few. Much, however, as we are bound to commend these two periodicals, both in point of literary contents and manual execution, they are, we learn, to be surpassed, in the former respect at least, as well as in graphic adornment, by one which we are making the most elaborate efforts to speedily announce. This will lie a work which niav nroilnce. not what is commonly called a mere sensation, but an extraordinary excitation in the public mind. It will be highly novel in ull its characteristics, and particularly in that of its containing a more immediate report of the. Parisian fashions than any of its transatlantic competitors; while its literary matter will be contributed, at whatever cost, by the best writers of both hemispheres. For such a work, scattering, as it will, the flimsy periodicals of the day, like the foam-bells upon the purple wave, and pregnant with the ambition of the most ardent geniuses of the age, the annual subscription of five dollars is the most moderate with which so exalted on object can be realized; but upon these terms the proprietor rests assured he can establish a publication superior to any which the public now obtain, either at home or from abroad. We have only to add, that our promises are never idly made. Bas Bleu.?The ladies of New Haven have established a literary society. Who will start a society for darning stockings and making puddings?

He haa had erected at a very great expense , i brilliant gas star, which affords infinite delight to hun- ; [reds of admiring eyes. That alone is worth the price of dmission; but when he gives Harrington, Delarue, Ro aLie, Kneass, Bennie and wife, with Master Young, half a 1 , million of curiosities, and the most splendid picture 1 ;nllery in America, all for one shilling, his munificence aerita a corresponding return. Writing.?-The celebrity of Mr. Bnstow, as a eacher of writing, makes any mention of his great nerits superfluous ; but it may not be generally nown that to conform to the times he has reduced lis terms from twelve to six dollars. The system if Short Hand Writing taught by Mr. B. is generally dmired, and for cither there is no teacher we can nore cordially recommend to public patronage. His ooms arc at '23ft, Broadway. Stkam Frigates.?It is not generally known bat we have three steam frigates lying idle in our isrbor. They are the Fulton, the Missouri, and the ilississipni. Could not the two latter be profitably mployea on some of our foreign stations, and as ve at present are involved in difficulties with the Dmperor of Morocco, we should think that there hey wculd be able to render efficient service, and vould maintain the honor of our country, at the ame expense that they are while idling for tne win- j er in our own |?orts.

LIEBlG'8 ANIMAL CHEMISTRY, or Orgsuic Chemistry in it* application to Physiology and Pathology, the moit important scientific work ever issued, w ill be published to-morrow, in an extra double number of the New World, No. 30 Ana street, in large octavo form, (instead of quarto) fur preservation, at-JA cents per copy, beiiig but one-fifth the cost of any other edition. Five copies for $1 j eleven cdpies for $-y, or $16 per hundred. This valuable work, it is admitted on all sides, marks the commencement of a new era in physiology. Liebig, by the profound lagacity which enabled him to erect so beautiful a structure on the foundation of facts which others had allowed to remain for so long a time utterly useless, has elicited the admiration of the scientific world. His im|>ortant discovery of the true source of animal heat would alone immortalize him. The author'e object in this work, has been to direct attention to the pointa of intereection of chemistry with physiology, and to ||>oint out those parts in which the sciences become, as it were, mixed up together. The volume contains a collection of problems. such as chemistry at,pren nt requires to be resolved : and a number ol conclusions, drawn according to the rules ot that science, from close observations and long experience. 0Q- THE WASHINGTON TROSPECT TEMPERance Beneficial Society w ill hold a meeting this (Monday) evening, at their Hall, in Elizabeth, one door from the coiner of Walker.

" Kxtract of The Genuine Sarsaparllla, Prepared by THE COLLEGE OF MEDICINE AND rHARMACY Of the City of New York. This article has been prepared at great expense, according to the new process of the Parisian pharmaceutists, and it confidently denominate ! the only really valuable preparation of SarsapariUanow oflsred lor sale in this country. Together with the active principle of the Smilax ojficivalit? the best species of the root?the College have incorporated that peculiar modification of sugar, which haa been termej gtycyrrhizin. In the "Extracts" of the not trum-veuders and certain druirgists, the common extinct ol liquorice is the chief ingredient, and can readily bede tected. bu- it is proper to state that in moat cases this extract of liquorice Is adulterated, and contains copper de rived from thu pans in which the decoction of tho root is evaporated. The College wish thus particularly to guard the public against the pernicious tendency of mixtures, containing largb quantities of this poisoned liquorice. The " Extract," prepered by the College, contains also an appropriate quantity of the peculiar cry stallizable principle, obtained from'.hat valuable vegetable bitter, Gentian, (so oulled trom Gentius, King of Illy ria, who first discovered its great virtues.) A small portion of the active constituents ot the Laurus Sassafras, another vegetable, whose efficacy as an alterative and purifier of the blood is well known, has likewise been added. These several articles have been incorporated, and their peculiar principles compounded in a highly concentrated form, and the result has been the production of a vegetable alterative and tonic, unequalled for |>ower and efficacy. The College merely add the following extract from the edition just published' of lirande's " Practical Dictionary of the Materia Medica? " This article has been prescribed in chronic rheumatism in obstinate cutaneous eruptions?in indolent ulcers?in glandular affections?in diseases of the hones, attended by dull aching p.vins, tumors and nodes?wasting of the flesh?and ii has proved a valuable remedy, and has sometimes effected a cure where other alteratiees have hem long adminicles td in rain, and when the diseased state of the system has hem of many years duration.

At Baltimore within a few day* past Baltimore and Ohio Railroad Stock has advanced fire or six dollors per share, and yesterday was in demand at $33. It has been frequently harped upon by a paper that Messrs. Little Si Co. delayed nearly three months after the opening of the books in making their delivery to Boorman, , Johnston SiCo. This delay on their part arose from the extreme dilHculty of getting the stock recorded on the new books of the Bank of Kentucky. The rules of the )>oardof brokers, into whose bosom Messrs. Boorman, Johnston ACo. came to transact their business, are as follows, in relation to the delivery of stock:? Nr.* Yoax, Aug. 6, 1843. The undersigned members of the New York Stock and Exchange Board, do hereby certify, that by the rules and bye laws ol the Stock and Exchange Board, and by usage, all contracts, for stock,which may become due during the closing of the books of any company, are postponed until the opening of the said books, after which the contract may lie over, subject to a day's notice, of either party, in which case they retain all their original character.

The great speech of Daniel Webster-, Esq., at Boston, iftords matter for grave consideration, inasmuch as it .hrows some light on the views and disposition of the exe:utive in relation to the "regulation of the currency "at the , soming session of Congress. Mr. Webster, with eminent sigacity, in the operation of the causes that alfect the pubic mind, states, that a large hank, lounded on private sub icription, like the old one, is utterly out of the question, t cannot be gotten up, at least in our day, or to use his >wn expression, "until the incoming of the Jews." To tart a fiscal agency of any kind at all, (bat i* to connect he government with the operation of individual buiineea n any way, through the agency of paper money, he very dearly atatea, that it muat be done at once, if ever. It nuat be done while there ia diatrcaa abroad; and the preence must be to relieve the people of that distress. If you lelay it until business has revived, and the people are in iresperoua circumstances, that pretence won't hold, and rou fail of your paper machine altogether. In tliia view Vlr. Webatcr emphatically exclaims .? Now, he is more sanguine thnn I,who looks to ace a time within a reasonable period when the wkigs of this connry will have more |>ower to work effectually for good, in -elation to this grout object of the currency than tlrey now lave. (Loud cheert.) This very moment?this approachng aession?calls upon them, in my judgment, in the loud. '? voioe oi patriotism, not to put off and not to postpone, lit to make the most?the best?of the means before them , in 1 try the experiment. (Cheers.) They aay the administration ia responsible for the state of the country.? Well, then, here is a measure of the administration, to which the Executive ia pledged. Why not try it? If the mature fails, let him bear it. Why not try it? If not ry it, try something else. Here then is the plain fact that Mr. Webster and the Extcutive are united on a currency experiment, and that all heir influence, supported by the dominant party, which s pledged to a scheme of some sort, will be used to perfect t. Mr. Webster very candidly tells us what the scheme s. It is that which was submitted to Congress at the ommencemont of the last session. Mr. Webster expreses himself very strongly in support of it as follows :? This is the best measuro?the only measure for Conrr.... ami ihr nonnle to adont. I >m ready to stake my re ntationon it, anS tlmt II nl'l I have to stake, that it thia ? big <long res* will take that measure and give it a fair i ial within three year* it w ill be admittedby the w hole tmerican people to have proved itaelf to be the moat bentlcial measure ever established in thia country, the Contitution alone excepted, (Immense cheering.} Undertand genttemen, that I mean that Congress shall take it aa tit.
