NEW YORK HERALD. f'W Vork, III October 0, 1844. Tike EiiglUh'Ncw^-KorrlKii Opinions ?n 111 Treaty with Rngland. The news froin Europe, brought to Boston on the day beiore yesterday, by tit Columbia steamer, ivery curious, very amusing, very interesting, vei> droll, and very important, at least in one respect.? We do not allude to the sea-sickness of Victoria in going to, or coming from, Scotland?nor to the qualm* of the stomach felt by Prince Albert nor to the quantity of pap eat by the Prince ol Wales? nor to the teething of the Princess ol Wales?nor to Charles Dickens'" Votes for circulation on America"?nor to Sir Kobcrt Peel's as assinaUon by Benjamin?nor to the corn laws with the sliding scale?nor to theatricals, including Fanny Elssler ? To none of these to we allude. What tnen 1 It is to the opinion* of the London anu Paris newspaper press on the recent treaty negotiated by Lord Ashburton and Black Dan Webster. The London press, of both parlies, find fault with this treuly, and are particularly lavish ol very uncomplimentary remarks on Lord Aakburton j for effecting its negotiation. There area few sensible exceptions to this tone, particularly in the commercial prints?but the regular John Bull news paper-? seem to say?" ttuw couiatve expeci uuything else!" " Sending over an old woman in the nhaj>e of a lord to contend in diplomacy with a live Yaukee, was lolly in the extreme"?Brother Jonathan had already wheedled John Bull out of $100,000,000 in loans?and now long legs has got out ol our old chap as many ucres in Maine." In l'aris, a large portion ot the presc, the war j party portion, are equally angry that a treaty has been made at all?but especially on the clause providing for a mutual right of search in suppressing the slave trade. All General Cass's efforts have been upset like fat in the fire. These opinions, however, in both England and France, do not pervade the sensible, practical, or coininereiul classes. They seem to be very well satisfied with the treaty, and anticipate much good from the permanent settlement of difficulties. It is curious, however, to observe, that the ultras on both sides of llie Atlantic, have looked upon the treaty with the sa>?e hostility, although from exactly opposite points of view. In the United States, the enemies of the present administration abuse the treaty because the English, as they allege, have all the advantages?in England, the opposition attack it because, as they allege, the Yankees have all the upper hand. Attacks on a treaty from such quarters, would seem to indicate that the treaty is pretty near the mark?and so do the sensible portion oi people on Dom ?iu?"8 oi me auuuuc mum ivw. In short, John Tyler and Daniel Webster, have eflected the negotiation of a pretty lair treaty, that Adams, Jackson, Monroe, Clay, and a score of great men, never heretofore could accomplish That's the truth. Mr. Webster's Speech in Washingto.?The three newspapers in Washington treat Webster's speech very amusingly. The National Intelligencer is quite savage, and attacks Mr. Webster with all the fierceness o( a poodle dog who fears losing his bowl of sweet milk. We never thought there was such a quantity of brimstone in Silky, Milky & Co.; but the softest cream will sour in a hot sun. The Madisonian, including John Jones and the "Corporal's guard," seem to be in a perfect quandary? think Webster's speech great?afraid to say much of if?praises the President's vetoes?deems Mr. Webster's defence only his own case?wonders what all this means?appears to be in a perfect mist?do n'l know what to do?and then copies the speech as incorrectly reported by the Tribune. The (Ilobe is in perfect ecstacies wilh the s|>eech and Mr. Webster?considers it the greatest speech he ever made?talks of his great intellect and wonderful moral courage?believes that he has set up for himself?and that he isquite hostile to Clay, See. Mr. Webster's speech is certainly producing a most wonderful sensation among politicians, newspapers, whigs and locofocos. The whole country and both paities appear to he electrified?magnc- | tized?mesmerized?but whether for good or for evil,tney naraty yet Know iur. \vrosier, ;vir. wenster, come to New York?deliver another s|*ecli, and give us all another delicious, cold, refreshing shower-bath of eloquence. l)o come. Medical Intelligence.?The two medical schools in this city, are making great preparations for the approaching session. The old College of Physicians and Surgeons, emboldened by the remarkable success with which they met last year, will open the campaign with great vigor. In the Stuyvesant school under the management of Dr. Mott and Dr. I'attison, the din of preparation is also heard, and these gentlemen are bringing into active operation all the sagacity and sound sense which they possess. The Crosby street school have now, we have heard, about fifty students entered,?the Stuyvesant school according to their own account iiave sixty, but making the proper allowance for the gasconading faculty of Dr. Pattison and his colleague, both schools may be fairly stated to be on a par as to the number of students already matriculated. Both thus start equally matched in this particular. It was unlucky, however, that rejection of the students at the Navy Board ! - By the by, the Stuyvesant p ople have made a very novel and extraordinary movement for the advancement of medicine. We allude to their calling in the aid ol another profession, and seeking to promote surgery and physic by a law suit. It would appear that the Stuyvesant gentlemen, are thus determined to make the world believe that they are far superior to the College of Physicians and burgeons, and that all who allude to the fact of the rejection of their students at the Naval Board, must do it at the peril of twenty-five thousand dollars damages. Assuredly, to use their own words, " this is a thing without precedent among colleges."' We will see how it works. In a few weeks, the lectures will commence in both schools ; we will send .reporters to both, and keep the public fully informed of their progress. Latest Bask Explosion.?The failure of the PhoDuix Bank, ui Charlesfown, within sight of Bunker Hill and Boston, is the latest piece of bank roguery during this month By this explosion, a great many poor people, officers in the navy, mechanics, and others have ber n plundered of their properly. A small cliqwe of the directors had taken the capital by way of loan, and lived on it tor years This is only the old story. Not a bank has exploded in the land, that it has not been produced by the rascality of directors and their friends. In fact, the financial classes for years, with some few exception*, have been plundering the banks?eating up the property of the widow and orp'nan?living in the most luxurious style?and yet escape the State prison which their crimes so justly merit. A petty thief, who steals twenty-five dollars is caught, indicted and punished in a month?a magnificent thief who steals #50,000 or $500,000 is considered a gentleman, a resectable man, and so escapes punishment. How long will such things cryto heaven for vengeance t The Wall Street Congressional District.? There will be a great fight among the whig* for the nomination in their district. We understand that John C. Hamilton has the best chance. It is said he has s -cured a majority of the committee?and that the thing was cut and dried before the ward meetings took place. That's all right. Ominous.?At the recent whig primary meetings, some very ugly quarrels and splits took place. It seems also thai the merchants as a body, very generally approve the views and sentimenta of Mr. Webater, and, in consequence thereof, will go to the P ?'!- very sparingly at the coming election. We'll Sew Orleans is now free from yellow fevar. The Racks?Union Covrse, L. I.?For the three mile heats yesterday morning, William Jones enterid his bay horse Treasurer, and Samuel Latrd, brown horse Mariner. The pure- was $500?$1(X) to tiie second best horse. Mariner was the favorite previous to the start by short odds. firtt htat.?Mariner took the lead, and kept it, from one to two lengths ahead, for the first mile, which was run slow in 2 m. 09 s. On the second mile he widened the gup to four lengths before reaching the hall mile jiost, und held it to the Judges' stand, still going slow?the second mile in 1 m. 50 s. On the third and last mile there was considerable excitement, as the running in the othet two had been too slow to last. Mariner kept the lead about a length until they passed the first quarter post, when Treasurer's rider began to move him, and on making a brush at the half mile post, passed his opponent about a neck, both going at a killing pace, lie held his advantage, adding a little to it as they came near the last quarter, when Mariner made a desperate struggle to gel the lead, but could not come it, and Treasurer won the heat by about a length only. Time of last mile 1 m. 50^?. Whole heat 5 m. 55^ g. The horses cooled off' well, Treasurer being a little too soft, but otherwise in excellent condition, and at the sound ot the bugle all were ready for the Second Heat.?The hetting had now changed, and ran about even on the result. Mariner took the lead from the start, and kept about a length ahead, both going at a moderate pace, and passing over the first tntle in lm. 57s. On the first quarter of the second mile they began to increase their speed, Mariner going nearly his best, and kept in about the same position, doing it in lm. 56s. un the third and last mile, Mariner was on the lead full two lengths as they came near the half mile post, when Treasurer made a brush to win the heat, but did not succeed in passing him at the first effort. As they came down the last quarter bets were made both ways on the winner of the heat, and it was difficult to see which was the foremost. Both were whipping to the top, and not until their noses were at the scratch was it ascertained that Treasurer had won the heat and the purse by only about half his length. Time oflastmile lm. 51s. Whole heat 5m. 46s. Mariner won the three mile purse at Trenton last week, beating Truxton and Diana Syntax, and dis tancing Charlotte Cushman. Time 5.53,5 47, 5.52. This is the first purse won by Treasurer since his race with Andrewetta, on thiscourse, in 1840, when he won the three mile purse in one heat?time 5m 42s ?the best ever made in this country, we be lieve. The star of Major Jones is in the ascendant after a long reverse. Second Rack.?The second race was for mile heats, purse of $50. with #10 entrance to be added. Charles S. Lloyd, entered chesnnt horse Redgauntlet ; II. A. Conover, sorrel horse Miracle, and T. Porter, brown mare Prima Donna. The latter w as the favorite, and won the heat in 1m- 51?s.; Miracle coming in second and lapping her, while Red Gauntlet was half a distance in the rear. Second Heal.?Red Gauntlet was withdrawn,and Prima Donna and Miracle started for the heat, which was well contested, and won by the latter by a length, in lm. 54s. The only entry for the four mile heats to-day, is that of Fashion, who will take the puree by galloping around the course at one o'clock. There will, therefore, be no race. For the mile heats, purse #50, with #10 entrance to be added, Charles S. Lloyd entered brown colt full brother to Hornblower, three years old, but as there was no other entries, no race will come off. It is contemplated to have a second fall meeting over the course, if either Fashion and Bostnn, or Blue Dick, can be induced to enter for a four mile puree. Much excitement exists relative .o the meeting at Camden on Saturday the 29th inst. It is supposed that Fashion and Blue Dick, or Boston, will certainly meet there, and as the second named horse has recently made some splendid performances over the mountains inVirginia,calculations are making by those who go the odds, to fill their wallets on" the result. There is no doubt that he is a better match for the " top of the turf' than old "White Nose," and if they meet, this opinion will be confessed by the result. There is no break down in Blue Dick ?he is a perfect pealer in speed and bottom, and together. The notion, for such we must call it, that Boston and Blue Dick will both be entered against Fashion is without foundation, as it is understood the two former ate both in Col. Johnson's stable. The Dun. Indictment.?T..c Courier & Enquirer has some very amusing rentarKson the recent indictment for the duel in which Tom Marshall figured so largely. The Courier gives a variety of reasons that did not cause the indictment, and then winds up with the intimation that it was made from the circumstance that certain locotocos and abolitionists were on the Grand Jury. We can give abetter reason lor the finding. We always supposed that indictment was found in consequence of two men going out and firing at each other with loaded pistols?and trying to murder each oihtt with bullets, but came 00 with a ball in the leg of one of the parties. If that event had not taken place, all the locofocos and abolitionists in the world could not have iound the indictment. As well might the Courier attribute such a finding to the cut of the breeches worn by the Grand Jury. We should think "Col. Webb of the regular army" would indicate more policy to submit to his fate, instead of insulting the Grand Jury or the feelings ol the public by such articles. The day to settle accounts with the pugilist and duellist has come?and they must meet it. The Steam Suit British Queen will sail to-morrow for Southampton and Antwerp. She has a fine number ot passengers engaged. Packet Ship Westchester.?By the energy of Cipt. Ferris, this ship, which has been thirty-five daysirshore, wa? assisted ofi yesterday morning, and towed to the city by the powerful tug boat Mutual Safety, Capt. Davis. She was -o long on the beach that we do not believe she is worth much now? scarcely worth repairing. Seldom, if ever, however, has a vessel been saved under the same circumstances that this one has been. Game Laws.?The Board of Aldermen last evening passed an ordinance prohibiting the sale of par tridge or quail until after the 28th of October. Hucksters will therefore look out. The News from Texas.?The news we published yesterday is confirmed. Mexico has actually com menced hostilities upon Texas. Dempster is Brooklyn.?Dempster gives a conarrt in the Lyceum, Brooklyn, to-night. See advertisement. The Queen of England proved herself, on hei recent trip to Scotland, to be a much better sailot than her husband, and danced Scotch reels with great gusto. Hhodk Island.?Another outbreak is expected here shortly. (tkoroia Elections.?We ha- no returns yel front this State.

I Before Judge Kent and Aldermen Underwood and Kelly. Wisnnou, Oct. 6, lt)U?TViaJ of Richard Knohht, for Ih* murder of Jamtt Price?The prisoner who is about 46 or 30 y ears of age, was brought into court about half past ten, in custody of officers Lyon, Barber and F. F Smith. He appeared to be exceedingly feeble, the effects ot long confinement and illness, produced by his attempt at suicide immediately sul>sequefit to the murder, Messrs. Craft, Bradley and H ckett, appeared as bis counsel, and the District Attorney on the part of the piosecution. The names of the jurors were called, but a sufficient number not being in attendance, the Sheriff was directed to summon four talismen from the body of the county. Some little delay occurred, when the prisoner was placed at the bar, a jury empannelled, and the trial proceeded in. The Clerk read the indictment, and the District Attorney, alter stating the charge to the jury, said he believed a Plea of insanity would be set up in extenuation. If the jury found, from the evidence, that the prisoner really was insane at the time of committing the murder, they would acquit him, us the laws neither of God or man punished an indivi lual lor an act committed when reason had deserted its throne Edwakd sworn?Am a blacksmith, now residing m Mulberry street?resided on the 13th May last, with my mother, w ho kspt a boarding house, at 71 Cherry st. Knew the deceased child. He was named James Price, between 4 and 3 years of age. His father put up at the house, having this little boy with him?the mother of the child was not there, being sick in the hospital at Staten Island. They had been at the home about nine (lay a. On the evening previous to the murder the prisoner came to the house with two other persona, slept and took breakfast there. About nine in the nrorning, I accompanied the others to the ship in which they came (she was Irom Bristol, and not the same that Price had come in;) prisoner did aot go, he being sick in bed. We returned about two, and found prisoner still in bed. We went to his room and told him his w atch was not in his box. He said it could not bu lor he had given it away the day before The men and myself then went down stairs, leaving him alone and in bed. There were no children in the room. About five minutes afterwards I went up stairs again to see my nephew, who was sick in the room adjoining to that of Knobbs. As I passed along 1 asked Knobbs how he was, and he replied that he was getting better. After being in my nephew's room about five minutes, talking to mv sister, I heard my mother halloing from below to my little niece to tell me to go into prisoner's room, that something was there. The little girl came up and I ran into the room; 1 saw the little boy lying alongside the bedstead on the tiooi, the child's head towards the head of the bed. 1 caught the child up ?saw it was cut across the throat, and still struggling, though it could not speak. The blood was thick where it lay. Put it down airain. Saw the prisoner lying on the bed, his face down and his hands extended over his head. There was blood on the pillow. Went to the door, and cried murder, as lrud as I could, then ran down stairs The child and its father slept in the same room with prisoner, in another bed. Had not seen the child when 1 went up, nor did 1 hear any scream from it. I ran into the street and called the neighbors?about fifty ran up stairs, and I followed them. My mother was going towards prisoner's door, but 1 saw him standing up with a knife in nis hand, and dragged her away. None of us dared to go into the prisoner's room,as he had a knife. He came with it to the door, and we all ran down stairs, but soon rushed up again when he had gone back. People were afraid to go in till a seaman named William Brown took a piece of board in bis hand and went into the room, when others followed. The child still lay as I left it It was taken up dead, and put on a cot. Axis Mount* sworn?Kept the house 71 Cherry street. On Friday evening the prisoner and two of his acquaintances, came to board. He took his supper and soon went to bed, complaining that he did not feel very well. He did not say what was tne matter with him, but appeared sensible enough The next morning he went out with his friends and took a walk, returning to breakfast. I asked him how he wus, and he replied " a little better." He rose from the breakfast table and went into the yard?something came over him and he fell down. His two friends and Mr. Price (mther of the child) took him up and carried him up stairs to bed. I went up soon afterwards and asked him how he was. Ho replied that he was very sick. One of his friends went for a doctor, who returned with him. The doctor, after seeing prisoner, came down and told me to give him some lemonade after the stuff he had been giving him Went up and asked the prisoner how he was, hereplied that he felt poorly. I saw no more of him till my littie grand-daughter, who is about twelve years of age, came running down and said that the man was killing little Jem4 and that he was full of blood. I told her to go to the next room and tell my son. My son went in and soon came running down stairs liko some person out of his mind, crying " murder, murder, murder." They told me not to venture up. I went in sight of the door, and saw the man standing with the knife in liis hand, flourishing it from one side lo the other, and looking very wild. He did not say anything. The prisoner came from Monmouth, in South Whales?I know the place. Willian Brows sworn?Am '27 years of age,and follow til'* ma Qatir anmn norson a in IWtnl nf 71 n?.AA? ...V .......... Ui i i .l-coi uu the dayjin question, and asked what was the matter. They said a man had billed a child. I risked if they had secured the man.^They said "no, they did not like to go up, he had a large knife." I said " well, I will go up." They said " you better not." 1 went up, looked into the room, and saw the child on the floor on its back, but could not sec any thing of the man. I went in cautiously, lest lie should surprise me, and saw him lying on the bed, which was at the side of the room, behind the door. He was lying about th wart hawser. He had a knife in his hand, which lay down beside him. There was a window in the back part of his room, which he appeared to be looking out of. When he saw me he dropped the knife, which I immediately secured, and took hold of him, but he seemed to take very little notice. I askedhim what made him do tka. He saiu he did not know. I asked him what animosity he bore towards the child's father. He replied nonn. There was a small line in the chair, with which we tied hia hands, and an otticeT was sent for and he given into custody. Before his being taken away someone said that they would hang him. He replied it was all they could do, and he deserved it. His own throat was cut at the time. His shirt was bloody, and the blood ran down upon the bed. It must have keen cut sometime, as the blood was running down. His throat was rut very badly. The knife was a table knife, and was takv-n care* of. It seemed to have been sharpened on a very coarse stone, as the edge was rough And ragged. A lady (a relative of Mrs. M.) testified to the prisoner hariug f.tinted in th- yard that morning. She frequentlyshut his bed-room door after he had been carried up sta-rs, but it would be opened by some one again. Saw the child ten minates before it was killed. A little girl, five years old, that was with him, said that Kuobbs took hold of him by the arm, and pulled him into the room. John Price sworn.?Saw the prisoner at the breakfast table. He eat very little. He complained of being unwell, and went into tha yard, where befell, apparently in a tainting fit?his eyes were open, but he was insensible. We took him to bed. I asked him afterwards how he was, and he said very bad, he thought he would soon be a dead man. He complained of having chills and paina all over him. When I went ent my little child was In the barroom. Do not know that the prisoner had any animosity towards me. I did not know him previous to hig coming to the house. Do not know how the child got into his room,as I was out at the time. Dr. UisDEaiiiLi. sworn.?Was called on the Saturday morning to see Knobby Found that he had considerable lever on nim 01 me ij pnoia cnaracter; gave Him a lew grains of calomel, and recommended that he be lent to the ospital. The fever ii of that kind that might produce sudden insanity, which a ion of Mood (aa in the present case) might aa suddenly allay. He complained of having been aick on hoard the vessel, and that the Captain administered to him. The Coroner testified to the prisoner having much fever and being very low on the holding of the inquest. The cut on his throat was much extended, but not deep or dangerous. His sickness was of that kind that could have created sudden insanity. The District Attorney here rested. An appeal fwas made to the Jury by Mr. Hackett, and strong efforts made for the prisoner by his other counsel. The Court reviewed the facts, and the Jury found a verdict of?Not Ouilty. General Session*. Before Recorder Tallmadge and Judge Lynch. W. Straxo, Esq. acting District Attorney. Oct. 6.? Trial for Burglary.? John Jackson, a negro, was tried on an indictment for burglary in the first degree, in breaking into the dwelling and store of Charles K- Bell, 04 Bowery, on the night ol the 3d of September last.

PY 1 fiK SOUTHERN MAIL Philadelphia. f <" rr. ti,.iidruc, of titc Hrrnld.J Pmi.adei.rHiA, Oct. 5,1842. James Gordon Bennett, Esq. Dear Sik :? Another delightfully clear, cool day, to-day. One of our financiers? Thomas S. Nicholson? about whom you have heard so much during the last two or three years, is to go to the penitentiary Yes, he is positively to be sentenced next Saturday. Reason?his money has given out. This rascal Nicholson, you will recollect, was clerk to Hewitt, the sugar refiner. By a series of forged entries in his master's hooks, he contrived to swindle him out of #30,000. This money?or at least the greater part of it tie invested in a splendid mansion at the corner of Tenth and Shippen streets?a residence built after some rather outrr ideas as to architecture, and preposterous notions as to ventilation, heating, Jcc. The property, in consequence, now could scarcely be sold for a sous. The prosecution against Nicholson was commenced in the winter of 1839. Since then he has constantly kept in his employ the big guns of the Philadelphia bar, and has paid them liberally. They kept his case out of court for about two years or upwards. It finally came to trial in the General Sessions, and the rogue was convicted, and locked up in Moyamensing. Motion in arrest of judgment, and for a new trial was made. Judge Barton, who was originally the prosecuting counsel in the case, ref used to take any part in it Judge Conrad and L)oran heard the motion for new trinl, and dismissed it. The motion in arrest of judgment was dismissed by Conrad, but sustained by Doran, who overruled some twenty or thirty decisions of the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania. The delendant could not be sentenced. Prior to Judge Doran's decision, he had been admitted to bail, it having been the opinion of his physicians that if he staid another day in prison, he would die of an enlargement of the heart. Justice was thus completely baffled. Judge Barton?to the everlasting credit of his honor, be it spoken?between a feeling of delicacy and a regard for the supremacy of the outraged laws of this community, after listening for days tol an argument of counsel against the proceeding came into the case and thus prevented the escape of the criminal. The Judge's decision was announced, verbally from the bench, this morning, when the defendant was immediately ordered into the custody of the Sheriff". A large mass meeting of the whigs of the city and county is to be held in front of the Slate House this evening, at which the Hon. John Sergeant is to preside. This is for the purpose of stirring up the dormant energies of the party and screwing tneir courage to the sticking place for the election on '1 uesday next. Great preparations are makit g by the office-holders, to make it eaual in numbers to the one held by the Democrats last week. At a mass meeting of the Democrats, in Southward on Monday evening, a large body of Harrison and Tyler whigs?and some Clay whigs?headed by .lumen ? iregory, me iaie coroner, one 01 me strongest fighters under the Harrison flag, here, in 1840? came forward and joined the Democratic ranks. Mr. Gregory said, that he had for twenty years been battling for the whig party?that he had at last seen the error of his ways?that he had heartily repented, and that he was now determined to join and stick to the true faith.

There was a time when our fire department was all that was fair?all that was honorable?all that was disinterested?all that wis manly?all that was noble. Now the picture is worse than reversed. A really respectable citizen can hardly be brought to acknowledge any connection with the department, which at this time is largely-composed of a set of the veriest cut-throat ruffians that ever went unhung. These precious villians have, within the last few months committed outrages of the most disgraceful, degrading, brutal, infamous?and even incendiary and murderous character. The peace of the city has been almost nightly disturbed?quiet and good older laughed at?the police disregarded (the election being near at handt the police from the sherifl down, have lately cautiously kept themselves out of the way?the torch has constantly been applied to buildings; hardly a day passes without the burning of a stable, carpenter shop, or some similar building?property wantonly destroyed in themeleed between the different companies? the Sabbath has been profaned?and indeed, man, the Almighty, and verily Satan hiinsejf, defied.

From Tkxas.?President Houston has issued a proclamation,ordaring the*marching forthwith of the Brazono, Anstin, Fort Bend, Colorado, Victoria, Gonzales, Jackson and Matagorda counties against San Antonio ; and the counties of the upper Brassos and Colorado to march to Austin, and the citizens of other counties to hold themselves in readiness. The orders of the Executive are direct, that in the event of the evacuation of San Antonio by the Mexicans they are to be pursued beyond the Rio Grande and chastised as" their audacity deserves." In the event of a formal invasion, the western counties axe to hold themselves in check until the rest ol the Republic can rally to the rescue. The British mail packet steamer Medway, Capt.

Wednesday, Oct. 5?6 P. M. We have again ten days later intelligence from England. Nothing of consequence had occurred in the commercial world during that period. The strong position of the Bank and the low rate of money was very gradually producing a little improvement in trade. The returns of tho Bank to the 10th Sept. as compared with the previous returns were as follows:? Base or Eisclaisd. Sept. 10. Jtue. 13. Inc. ?. ? ?. Circulation, 10.714,000 18,952,000 761,000 Drpusitrt, 9.833,000 9,330,000 503, M0 (Securities, 23,159,000 21,525,000 634,000 Bullion, 9,177,000 8,496,000 681,000 The quarterly comparison is as follows :? Sept. 10. July 16. Ine. ?. ?. ?. Circulation, 19,711,000 18,279,000 1,435,000 Deposits, 9,833,000 8,565,0?0 1,268,000 Securities, 23,159,000 21,713 000 1,446 000 Bullion, 9,177,000 7,818,000 1,359,000 The increase in the securities shown by the above may be accounted for by the recent reduction in the rates of interest for loans, which will also account for the almost identical increase in the circulation exhibited by the quarterly comparison. The increase in the deposits is occasioned by the abundance of floating capital and the absence of demand for commercial purposes, even at tho very low rates of interest which money at present can command. The yearly comparison is as follows :? September. September. 1842 1841. Inc. Dec. ?. ?. ?. ?. Circulation, 19,711,60(1 17,481.000 2,233,000 ? Deposits, 9,831,000 8,052,000 1,781,000 ? 9-eniities, 23,159,000 23,567,000 ? 108,000 Bullion, 9,177,000 4,975,000 4,202,00a ? This gives an increase of nearly 16 percent in the volume of the Bank currency at this period over that of last year. This has produced the very low rates of inter jst, being to '2} per cunt, for the best commercial paper. A further increase of the circulating medium may be brought about by the payment of the approaching dividends. At the same time there was an evident increase in the demand for money lor accommodation, but the money market presents the anomaly that the glut of money and low rate of interest has for the first time failed in giving rise to speculations,or having any visible effect on the value of commodities. It can scarcely be doubted that the existing state of the circulation, and the position of the Bank, furnish irrefragable evidence that the profits on production have so declined, that there is not sufficient inducement for the investment of capital, even at the low rate to which the value of money has declined. The abundance of money is not confined to London only; we perceive that in Paris the rate of discount on Bonds de Tresor has fallen to 3 per cent, which has seldom or never been so low before. At Hamburg and Amsterdam the rate of interest is very low. Many failures continue to occur, gtowing mostly out of the great fall in bread stuffs. We notice the stoppage of R. Roberts of Manchester. He was indebted to the Bank of Manchester ?04,000. Also Lubienski A Co. ofD.<ntzio, one of the largest corn dealer* of the Baltic. Their liabilities amount to ?100,000. The papers are mostly taken up with the late United States tariff* law, and are unanimous in its condemnation. A London paper announces as follows "There is thus every temptation offered to speculation, if not to induce a revival of trade; but the nature of the American tariff', which is almost prohibitory of our coarse woven goods, must tend to check any general spirit of returning coutidence in our produceis, and makes the appearance of the autumn trade very cheerless." Another takes the following view :? "But as things stand at present, it will only have the effect of preventing any revival of the direct trade with New York; as the Western States will undoubtedly find it more profitable to take their future supplies of goods from the contrabandists via Canada, who will have a large margin to pay insurance against risk ot capture by the frontier Custom officers. Instead of doubling the revenue, as they calculate, we doubt whether they will obtain any increase over the last year's returns in consequence of this ill-judged augmentation of duties." Notwithstanding the abundance of money, there was actually no improvement in the state of American credit. The London Olobe, however, states as follows :? "We may now expect that the commercial prosperity of America will revive and exercise a favorable influence in this coun'ry. Although no very important improve, ment has yet shown itsell, yet there is a better feeling in some of the American stocks, which is a feature of considerable importance to a large portion of our country, meu." It is very probable, that after Lord Ashburton shall have arrived out, and from personal knowledge have put the matter of State and Government credit in a proper point of view before the large capitalists seeking for investment, that much of the discredit will be removed. A great deal of the opposition heretofore manifested against the stock ofthe Federal Government has arisen from a desire, by making it a participant in discredit attending State defalcations, to compel it to do something to assist them. Lord Ashburton can, however, explain the utter impossi. bility of such an event. No matter into what form the present debt may be converted, it is after all a debt due by the same people, and must be paid by taxation in some form. The shortest and cheapest way to do it is for each State to tax its own citizens for its own debts, if the federal government was in high credit, with a revenue equal to its expenditures, and could borrow money in the market* of the world, it might with some effect extend a helping hand to tome of the most delinquent States. Hence the foreign capitalists in their blind clamor against all American credits, defeat the very object they endeavor to gain. Money is undoubtedly very abundant in the London market; so much so, that large sums are lying idle which cannot find employment even at the low rate of 3^ per cent. It is therefore reasonable to suppose that the present small sums wanted by the United States will be nrivatclv and speedily taken up by the wealthy connec tions of the special minister. An undoubted security at 0 per cent, when money is worth hut two, is a temptation that might overcome pretty strong prejudices. The taking of the losn would extend temporary relief to our government and have a great influence in starting mercantile affairs from the sluggish condition into which they have fallen, bat we do not look upon a renewal of loans to this country as a thing by any means desirable. It might assist in bunging Congress to a more common sense view of the commercial intercourse between the two countries, and induce an amelioration of the presant destructive tarilf. The news from abroad was looked upon in a favorable light,but produced no immediate effects upon the stock exchange. The tales were, if possible, smaller than usual, w ithout any definite change in prices. The Hate of Michigan, when it became a State, created a loan for $100,000. Of this $06,000 was held by the United States, and $34,000 by an individual?the interest on this sum has been paid by the State recently in State scrip worth SO cents on the dollar, so that an Individual claiming $100 of interest would get but $80 This is the bona fide debt of the State for which it got a ful) equivalent. The Boston board of brokers have acted upon the case of Beorman, Johnston fc Co. and the report of that hoard we hereto annex. First, however we would remark on the statement put forth by Boo man k Co. and by soma considared as a valid excuse for their conduct, vlx : that the Board of Brokers had no jurisdiction in the matter. It is well known that the stock was purchased for Boorman of Little St Co., and the transaction recorded on the books of the board.
