TH Vol. TIU, lo, ?83 - ? Whole Ho. 3134. New Orleans. f Correspondence of the Herald.) New Orleans, Sept. 30,1812. Tixat?Moral*?Ntw??Banktr??Cotton ?Silver? Duatriial*, tftDear Bexmett :? Yours is the most extraordinary paper in the universe. it knows and publishes every thing in advance of all other papers. We think we get Texas news first, but we had hardly finished reading our cracaeu paper, the " Bulletin," last Tuesday, when your spirit came over us, and announces the invasion ot the Mexicans, twelve days in advance! al- | I though we Bey we hud just received it the night I before. It this is not necromancy or witchcraft, I don't know whut is ; and take care you are not burnt tor it yet. Ban Antonio, with her lawyers and judges, is certainly taken, and no joke. But Houston is out with his troops, and wiil make another San Jacinto affair of the Mexicans. So prepare to announce a victoryThis is .a great city for newspapers. We are about to have another called the " Tropic," with the Hag of Harry of the West Hying at the masthead The financiers have hitched their boat to her, and abandoned the noor " Bulletin." Alas, for the shade of Yorke ! (now in France); it is a pity that he is not here to join the ranks of those who once wielded the destinies of the Merchants', Exchange and Atchaialaya Banks. He certainly has shown more delicacy of feeling than the rest, who are determined to brew beat the community and trample the laws under their feet. It is said that Yorke will shortly land somewhere on Staten Island, and so look out, Mr. High Constable, catch him and bring him here, ana the Governor will give you $500. and all expenses paid. Look out, too,tor other absquatulatora about leaving these parts sure, for the goodly city of Gotham to take passage for la belle France. Tne President and Cashier of the notorious Atchafalaya Bank have lately been sued for nearly three hundred thousand dollars excess of issues, and will shortly^ no doubt, be making tracks. This beats old Nick himself I nave always told you that this was the city for financiering with u vengeance. Morality is at an end here, unless Parson Clapp can bring it back. We arc going to advertise for a dozen good preachers with strong lungs, to preach here this winter, as the place neeas it. rtoguery and rascality appears now to be the order of the day, but if we could only get a little morality and religion shoved in edgeways, I think the city would yet be saved. As she now stands, 1 don't think ten righteous men could be found in it. I want to leave this winter, if I can raise the wind, for I am sure it is a doomed city. Some of our banks are in a little better condition, but not much. Few will be able to open their vaults on the 5th December, and those few will not dare to do much business, for fear of a run tor specie. Capitalists from the North, if they will only bring the silver dollars here this winter, will do a strong business. Gut I would'nt advise financiers to come out, nnless they want a coat of tar and feathers. The cotton that has been sent to the city is of an excellent quality, but I am afraid the heavy rains are going to do a great deal of mischief. For this article the demand is yet very limited, and there is now a fine field for speculators. Goods and strangers are arriving every day by the ship load. We # shortly expect a French operatic company. Caldwell leases the American, and, with Celeste, he expects to do a profitable business. He deserves it. If he will only let politics alone, and stick to theatricals, he will yet make another fortune. We shajl have a host of Btars hers this winter. Yellow fever is now dead, and we are going to bury him to-morrow. Strangers can now come with impunity into the city. The Citizens' Bank is, (and one or two others it is said will be,) enjoined not to issue any more notes. What is going to come next I can't tell, but as soon as I hear I will let yon know. Lt New Orleans, Oct. 2, 1842. Courte of Trade?Markets?Texas? Theatres?Religion?Taxes. During the week just ended we have had fine weather, and some little more activity in business. The receipts of produce have been heavy for so early * period in the season. The Ohio is high and in fact so are most all the tributaries of the Mississijipi, so much rain having fallen lately. This circumstance with the large crops and general disposition to realize from them, have caused those early and heavy receipts. 7000 bales of cotton have been sold,chiefly for Europe ; but the market closed in an exceedingly depressed and languid state, and at a decline of Jc. 1 quote ordinary at 5 to6c; middling 6a 7; fair 8c. Sales of near 9000 bbls. Flour have been made chiefly for Mexico and West Indies at $3,25; though some choice lots to Bakers have brought . For two years past the Missouri and Illin ois wheat has been very fine, and St. Louis brands had the preference in our market, but this season Cincinnati brands have regained the preference, the Ohio wheat being very superior. But a moderate business has been done in Provisions, and that principally in Lard, of which 3000 kegs have been sold at o to 64c. Northern goods have experienced a little better demand, without however any change in prices. $110,000 have arrived from Mexico. Specie would bear shipment now from New York, as exchange has declined considerably. London 3 per cent, prem ; New York, 60 days, 4 a 5 per cent, ais; Sight, 2 a 3 per cent, do., and will probably go lower as soon as any heavy purchases of Cotton are made. The want of a dem tad far exchange operates materially against Cotton. Ships are arriving in greater numbers than for some time past, many of them disabled by the late gales. Our citizens are returning from across the Lake, and strangers arriving from the North and West daily. The fever has almost entirely disappeared and soon we shall resume our wanted activity and bustle. You will remember that two weeks since Judge Cooley of the City Court gave a decision against tne constitutionality of our municipal wharfage tax.? An appeal was taken to the Parish Court and the question has been very ably argued by several of our most eminent counsellors for three or four days past, before Judge Maurian. The argument was concluded yesterday, and bis honor will probably give his decision in the course of this week. An injunction has been obtained by the Attorney General against the Citizen's Bank to prevent its issuing any more of its notes. Its functions as a banking institution will now cease, though I believe she cannot liquidate till her loans on property mature, which have vet some 30 or 40 Years to run. Our banks are required, by law, to resume payment on 5th December next, but it is not expected that more than four or five will do it, amon$ which I hear named the Bank of Louisiana, the City and the Mechanics &c Traders, as most likely to come up to the mark. These three have generally managed with ability and prudence, and my own opinion is favorable to a resumption. Our beloved Person Clapp has returned and now preaches with his usual eloquence to his attached congregation. The American theatre is fast approaching completion, and has been, I am told, leased by Mr. Caldwell. No news from Texas since that received per " Merchant," five or six days ago, which I sent you. The M. laaves again for Galveston to-day. She steamer "Alabama" resumes her regular trips between this and Havana on 8<h inet. Louisiana. Charleston. [Cotrwpondmee of ths Ilenbl.] Charleston, Oct. 7, 1842. Arrival of the Neptune?The newt by the Columbia? Clone of the Gale?Fine Weather? Butineu reviving? Vmteli arrived to-day, and in the offing. J. G. Bennett, Esq ? Dear Six? The steamer Neptune, Captain Rollins, came in this moming, in fine condition, about half past nine o'clock. She brought the Columbia's news in advance of the mail, one mail being still due. By a very common fatality, almost every item ot important news is anticipated in seme way or other, either by the passengers bringing copies of papers, or by some more rapid conveyance th in that furnished bv Uncle Main's mail establishment. It was so with Webster's great speech ; and the papers here wre obliged to publish ih> contemptible apology (for the real speech, as published in the Herald.) which appeared in the Tribune extra, or wait for (he mail. The news by the Columbia, though anxiously looked for, brings little to brighten the; prospects of the cotton planter or merchant; though it will probably have no immediate effect upon this market. E NE| NEV The high tone of anger which appears from the press to prevail in France, will soon nave good cauae to increase. Two vessels, freighted witn brandy, consigned to a house in thin city, are to be sent back without being permitted to enter our port. '1 he gale which has prevailed from the east for better than two days, has been succeeded by beautiful weather, bright sun. and balmy breezea ; and the city presents a more lively aspect than before for the season. The Herald is, and is likely to continue to be, the paper sought after by all classes in this city, who look for early intelligence from all quarters of the globe. It is difficult to get a glimpse at it at the reading rooms, from the throngs which crowd about it the instant it is on hie. It 1b indispensable to commercial men, and they know it. An election takes place in this city on Monday, for a Senator and Representative to the Legislature. There is a host of candidates for the Assembly; but Mr- Aiken, the Astor of Charleston, will go into the Senate without oimoaition. There is little excitement, and scarce any interest felt in the result. Few here care for the small crumbs which these of. fices yield to the pocket. Mr. S. King, of the Courier, haa been elected a major. He gets a new uniform complete?does not want Col. Greene's. En pauant. Mr. Webster's speech has a very " good notice in the Boston Morning Post." The Neptune leaves on Monday morning a*, ten o'clock, for Havana, New Orleans, and Galveston. We had quite a respectable meeting on the Neck a few evenings since, for the purpose of appointing a separate delegation to the legislature. This was opposed with much spirit by your brother Carroll of the " Chicora." on the ground of its being unnecessary, and productive of useless jealousy between the city and Neck. He took for this great ground the fact that the neck never asked any tiling from the Legislature which the whole delegation did not go for. Mr. Rhett replied with much warmth, and instanced several cases where the Legislature had refused to grant them their desires, and the delegation had voted against the interest of the Neck?such as that " negroes should not be allowed to stnokc any pipe, cigar, or use any other useless and unnecessary luxuriee.withui.the limits of the Neck." Mr. Carroll, with much brevity and force, ridiculed the petty tyranny and absurdity ol such enactments, and at one time we thought he would have carried the day?[or rather night]?but he sudlv committed himself?and allowing thelold campaigners to mystify him, became guilty of a'flagrant contradiction.? Our friend Campbell, with his usual quickness, immediately detected it, and in a speech which delighted his hearers?albeit, not much accustomed to public speaking?with a brilliant display of wit and sarcasm, supported Mr. Rhett; and the measure, consisting of a report and resolutions, was carried with every mark of awrobation. Yours, &c CmxL. Boston. [Correspondence of the Herald.] Boston, Oct. 10,1842. Wtbittr't Speech?Death qf Channing?Bank Excitement?Am$t of Financier*? Theatrical*. J. G. Bennett, Esq:? Unstinted encomiums are paased upon your masterly report of Webster'B great speech at Fanueil Hall. As 1 was present during its delivery, I can add my mite of praise. I will attest that it was a verbatim report, and I attentively perused it. Our public men Buffer much in reputation from inaccutate reports of their remarks at public meetings; and you deserve the gratitude of Mr. Webster in rendering him justice in this matter. Another row among the Students of Harvard College! One bound over in $500 for trial. These square capped rowdies deserve no sympathy from the public, and should be summarily punished. The failure of the Phoenix Bank has caused quits a panic among the poor depositors in the Boston Savings Bank, as many hundred dollars have been quite recently paid to appli cants, in bills of the Phoenix Bank. This remains to be accounted for. No collusion I hope. Funeral sermons were preached in most of our ? c t\. r>i? uiiuivu?.d jtc^iuaj.iu twtiiiiKuiwiakiuu Ul 1/i. V^lldllnlng. His demise has caused a gloom to ovsrshadc our community. The President of the Phoenix Bank, Mr. Wyman, has been arrested for swindling (while in bed.) An injunction has been laid on this bank Why not beforel "What need to lock the door after the mare isstolanl" Shove, one of the bank commissioners, has exclusively examined this bank since the creation of the board,and has uniformly reported it to his colleagues as being in sound condition. How is this) Was he deceived, or did a olind cover his eyes to its real conditionl We shall see anon, as he promises an explanation. Curses both loud and deep are uttered against the bank, an attack was feared, and part oi the available was removed to the Hamilton Bank. Bills are selling to-day at 60 per cent. I believe that when the affairs of this "swindling mill" have been made public, the usual amount of rascality will be developed,as in the case of the Roxbury, Chelsea, Lafayette Banks, and others hereabout.? You can hardly conceive of the effect produced by this failure in the quiet town ol Charlestown ; business seems to be utterly prostrated, and men meet in angry groups, denouncing the directors and all concerned. The extensive depot of the Western Railroad is so much crow ded with freight, mostly flour, that there is not room to unload the cars on their arrival, but the stock is not yet at par. Theatricals are in quite a flourishing condition, notwithstanding the city authorities have imposed a license tax of #300, instead of $6 as in former years. Forrest and Josephine remain during the week, and liackett comes on Monday. The National, notwithstanding the powerful opposition, has done an excellent business since its opening Pelby has an efficient company, and his energy and perseverance in bringing out a succession of novelty, ensures him success. 1 esteem him the best manager in the country. The South Bank intends winding up its affairs and relinquishing business, (and also the Charlestown Bank- The nation would not raonrn much if half the banks would go and do likewise. I will urite you again soon. I have seen nothing from Boston in your columns lately. The Herald is extensively read here, and you need an observing and efficient correspondent in our village. Superior Court. Befere Judge Tallmadge. Oct. 15.?David H- William? vi. Jona. T.earitt and otkeri.?Mr. L. was one of the firm of Leavitt, Lord k. Co., nigniy reapectaDie oooxseuers. in 1937, disponing tie had accumulated a handaomo fortune, he sold out to hia junior partners, (Messrs. Lord and Robinson,) his interest in the stock, Ice., being worth something like $100,000. Considering that the uame ot the firm being continued would l>e beneficial, he agreed not to advertise the dissolution for a year, but binding himself, individually, no longer to use the name of the tirm. He sold out on credit. During the year his late partners managed to lose all that he had left in their hands, and use his name on paper as oneoi the firm, for about $00,000 besides, which he has to pay. The business finally fell into the hands of Mr. Robinson, individually, who has recently gone through the bankrupt court, been washed clean of all his debts, and come out bright and new, leaving Mr. Laavitt to follow suit or struggle on with a load of liability upon him, for, judging from the remarks of counsel, tfoy have ruined themselves and him. The present action is on a note given by Robinson lor $941, in the name of the firm, some time after the year had expired, and the dissolution advertised. Judge Iuglis appeared as counsel for Mr. Leavitt, and made an earnest and powerful appeal in his behalf. It appear* that Robinson had made out an account, showing that the tirm was indebted to plaintiff in IS30 for $700, and he gave this, and other notes, lor the amount. Under direction, the jury gave a verdict for plaintiff, subject to the opinion of the court. For plaintiff, Mr. Atoughton. For defendant. Judge Ta glis and Mr. W. Dodge. t, H. District Court.

The law allows $0 per day to the disbursing officer, an appropriation by Congress, providing such does not|exceed two end a half per cent on amount expended. Major D. claims that he has a right to charge $9 a day on auch appropriation of Congress, or at each point, and that his situation as disbursing officer, ia not connected with that as an officer of the army.

THURSDAY MO Plfteeutli Annntl fair of the American In- c tltuta At NIMo's Garden?1844. t Wednesday, Oct. 12. 1 Mornino.?Another brilliant day, fully equal to t the two which have proceeded it. t We found the Fair much in the same state as we P left it last evening, with the exception of many new additions. ? Instead of giving indiscriminate notices of any f thing and every thing exhibited, regardless oi all f taste and good judgment, we have taken great paina J to find out, irom competent authority, those articles , which really and intrinsically deserve a notice, and the attention of the public. r It is in this view of the subject that we call atten* J tion to the American Pottery at Jsrsey city, speci mens of which may be seen on the right as you en- l1 ter the main saloon. We are assured, from disin- ? terested authority, that too much cannot be said in j praise ui ii. J This Pottery, for the manufacture ot cream co- li lored, dipt and printed earthenware.and fancy alone h ware, was established at Jeray city in the year 18%, h by David and James Henderson, and is yet the only e one on this continent where articles similar to the t Staffordshire ware are manufactured. r Ttiey had to encounter many difficulties, and o suent u large sum of money in the introduction of this interesting manufacture into the country, with d new and untried materials, of a different cnemic&l t characierfrom those used in England,which render- I ed the English receipts for the manufacture useless u to them. But after some years of expensive exper- v miente they succeeded in producing a ware which a has been much approved by the public, s The Company was incorporated in 1833, a capital e of over $100,000 is iuvested in the munulactare, which is now in successful operation. Oliver S. " Strong is the President. a The Machine Room has now become very attrac- P tive. We intend to give soon a full and accurate [} account of the machines exhibited there. At pre- c sent we know of nothing more attractive in it than f the steam engine itself. It is one of four just iiiunu- fi tactured at the Novelty Works for the Delawure and n Hudson Canal Company. It is one of the most per- <1 feet pieces ot machinery we have ever seen. When I l' in lull operation it scarcely makes noise enough to r disturb the stillness ol the grave. This engtite con- * tains an adjustible cut off valve by Horatio Allen, E.-q., lute principal assistant engineer of the Croton v ! Aqueduct. Among other machinery in this room o I may be seen a mill forgrindjng paints, glass, izc.?a a pin making machine, lull size modal utlk reels of 1 various kinds and curious construction?screw cut- * ting machine?snitt mill?flour and corn mills?a ? very attractive machi tie lor planing iron?machines fot cutting brads and finishing nails, iSec., Ate.

It is very i: ighly spoken of, and we doubt not deservedly so. 0 No. It48 is a sulky, a fine article.

Some four or five years ago. a 1 few ploughs were presented ut the annual fair. ~ Put t the committee had no means of forming an opinion J of their merits without an actual test. Hence small ' trials in a small way at first sprung up, which have now become a great attraction for thousands of people. At first dure was great competition, and multitudes of ploughs were presented. Competition however, has now reduced die number down to a f very few entries. r We left the city for East New York, that grave q yard of so many departed fortunes, at halt past one P. M. By invitation of Mr. Fisk, President of the f L. 1. R. R. Co., the delegates of the tastitute and 1 the press were invited to take seats in the cars, * gratis. 1 We found nearly one thousand people on the ^ ground, mostly practical farmers. Among the gen- f tlemen present, wa noticed the ComtnitUe on a Ploughs. Gen. Jer. Johnson, of Wallabout, Long v Island, the chairman; Allen Putnam, Esq., editor of the New England Farmer; and General Philip H. Schuyler, former consul to Liverpool. Also, Messrs. M. L. Tbompeon, Col. Crolius. L. D. Chapin, Bridgeman, Chauncey P. Holcomb, of Dela- , ware, delegate to the national convention ; and others of distinction. i The first thing done was the testing of the ploughs i with the Dynamometer. The rasults of course are i all that will be interesting to the public. The first J premium for the best plough was awarded to Minor ' and Horton'splough, of Peekskill. The second to Wyckoff's Wisconsin plough. j Ploughing Match.?The lands were laid out. 210 by 27 feet, being about one-eighth of an acre. There were hve entries. 1. Cornelius Bergen, of Brooklyn, with Bergen's plough. He held his own plough, and drove his , own team. 2. Messrs. Mooers <te Slater, of Ithaca, the side t hill and level land plough. We should have added c above, that this plough was not entered for compe- ? tition. It took the premium both the two years fast 1 past, and they did not wish ta stand in the way of J other ploughs. Had they entered their plough they J would probably have taken the premium. Such at j least seemed to be the general opinion of farmers f, present. It ie indeed a splendid plough, and we un- j derstand they have orders for it from all parts of the United States. 8 3. Philip S. Crook, of Flatbush, with Bergen'a patent plough, held byJona. Saul. 4. Lot Wyckoff, of Flatbush, with Whiting's papent plough, held by Mr. W. himself. 5. Minor <fc Horton, of Peekskill, with their own patent, and the only one drawn by oxen. ( This plough was held by a man named William r L. Stone. His ploughing excited much amuse- J ment among the brawny farmers; they said, "he d seemed to follow pretty much whera the oxen led * the way," and "did not make very straight paths " for his feet;" perhaps he was not used to going e straight," or "had got warped a little by some mes- p merie operation:" and some hinted that he might f< be "bothered a little with a tremendous sized gold d ring which he carried on his finger." tl The ploughing commenced precisely at three " o'clock, and they were allowed one hour to do their d work in. There was much excitement at the ntart. a ing. It was evident in the outset, although not at {J all a trial of speed, that Cor. Bergen would finish his land first: and so ne did, in just twenty-three mm- v utes. Mooers & Slater fintsned their land in four c minutes after Cor. liergen, that iH, in twenty-seven h minutes. The man named Stone got ihrvugli within the hour, but with great loss of wind, so much so that he was entirely disabled from making a Seech, which it was saia he wanted the committee j ould let him deliver. After the ploughing the committee went upon the ground, and ufter a careful and iuwurti il cxamina- a tion, tney agreed to give the first premium to b Mooers and Slater, the second premium to Lot Wyckoff. and the third to Minor and Horton. These " decisions, however, wcrs none of them announced * over there; indeed, we are probably the first to an- . nounce them even to the parties themselves. At a quarter |>aat 4, General Johnson called the t| people together to listen to an address by Mr. ilol comb, of Delaware, it being discovered on a sort of <1 coroner's inquest, that W. L?. Stone's wind was so * broken he could aniaulate nothing intelligibly. n Mr. Holcomb, accordingly, to the great satisfac- * tion of the people, proceeded to deliver a very plain, practical, common sense address. He did not talk about Greece and Rome, the universal themes of ^ empty heads, bat came directly to the point, and d adiireaaed the farmers unnn farmtnv nlnmrhinir. and ? other kindred topics. We have lull notes of his * speech, but tor want of room, must endeavor to do h him justice without reporting it in full. He was ? bred a farmer, he said, and had followed at the ?! plough tail, at the cart tail : and he could assure them that there was no calling more respectable. c( Such men as General Washington, Lord Brougham, c, and others of that class, who were farmers themselves, and good company for any one. He at then proceeded to apeak particularly of four t? ploughing matches which lie had just been attending. One at New Castle. Delaware, where I* there were six ploughs entered, all different, end T! each held by either an Englishman or a Scotchman ?second, at Albany: the third at Hartford, where there were ten ploughs entered. There they turned jr a furrow sixteen to eighteen inches wide: in Eng- tt land and Scotland nine inches wide ; in New England they also turn a furrow of seven inches deep. u| lie also spoke of the respective merits of the difWcnt modes of laying the fuirow, whether flat or at n an angle, giving the preference, as we understood him to the angular, lie concluded with some very handsome comidiments to the (ploughmen who had just made trial, and given proof of their skill, and y, also to the mechanics, and the American institute ; 01 wishing they might all be as happy and as merry as the ploughboy, who goes whistling at his plough.? in The address was received with loud cheers. The members of the Institute and others who )U RE I RNLNG, OCTOBER 13. tiiMe then went to a place where a cold lunch of eef and bread were served up by John Drew, who nade them pay filty cents each lor their bite. After waiting at least an hour for the cars wc reurned to the city a little after dark. Thus ended he great ploughing match, which passed off very ileasantly, and io the great satisfaction, so far as we leard, of all parties. Tnc Evening at Niblos.?As to the attendance ve have nothing more to say than tbat it was a perret jam. All the world, we are quite sure, were there, leneral Tallmadge informed us that the receipts of he two first days were considerably greater than hey had ever been on the same days before. Very nany new articles had been received during the day -large quantities of silk?two lots ot American nunufactured silver ware for competition?together vitli the set of rilver lately presented by the mem* icrs ot tne JNew York Bar to Judge Edwards. The Horticultural room still continues to be the ending attraction of the lair. We have already given me description ol the article in this room, which is inder the superb management of that most able and ndefatigable agriculturalist, florist, and teedsman, At. Bringeman, to whom the public are under such teavy obligations; he is fast wearing himself out in lis professional duties We are glaa however that lis name will live after him in an an enduring monunent. Either to-day or to morrow we intend to go hrough Mr. Bridgemau's room again, and give a full lotice of al| such articles as have been entered since iur last notice, which gave great satisfaction. It was not expected that there would be any adIress at all in the evening. But it being discovered hat the Hon. W. W. Broadman, M. C., from New laven, had just arrived, he was immediately called ipon, and, with twenty minutes notice, came forvard and delivered an excellent and appropriate ddress. He was introduced by the honorable Preident Tallmadge with some complimentary renarks. Ma. Boaromas'i Addkii.-Wo can only give a brief oticeofit. He said it was not without embarrassment, Iter the flattering compliment* which tho President had aid him, that, at so short a notice, he undertook to comly with the invitation given him. He could hardly hope o instruct them, hut in hehall of the American people he oulil undertake to render a tribute of gratitude to tho Lmerican Institute for the immense benrtita it waa c'?aerring upon tho country. Ho then proceeded to apecify any things which the Institute has donu in ita various opartments, comparing the atatc of the arta and manufac. urea now with what it was iu years gone by, when the ich nnd the great did not [>osgeai the comforts which very poor man now enjoys. Even Queen Elizabeth, hree hundred yoars ago, rode to parliament on a pillion ehindber Prime Minister. Now men have three shirts rho thirty years ago had but one. In discussing the great tysct?*f the American Institute, he spokeof agriculture a occupying the first place. Eighty percent ot the popustion of the country were agriculturalists, and their inrrests were first to be consulted. The government would ind it neceesary to protect domestic manufactures. It had cen said that the whole State of Rhode Island, if seld at uction to-day, would not futch the cost of her stone fen:et: and the reason was, because her stone fences were aaite at home, ami not imported from Manchester. Tho irotection of domestic industry lies at the foundation of 11 our prosperity. Mr. Boardman here proceeded at iime icngin 10 ui*cuss ine question 01 protecting domestic mlustry, a doctrine which h? said was gaining favor ail ver the land. His address was followed by very hearty ipplause from the whole audience. We regret we have tot room to write out our notice in folL At the close of the address, General Tallmadge innounccd n grand and gratuitous display of firevorks would immediately take pluce in the outer ;arden, made by Mr. Edge, a member of the Instiute.

The Jury acquitted Gentz without saving their seats. In the course of the trial, the court cided that the communications made to Dr. Stearns by lie complainant relative to her diaeaae, was admissible as vidence, as well as his knowledge of her having such isease.

Webb Pleaded Guilty. t As was intimated, exclusively, in the Herald of j, Tuesday last, James Watson Webb appeared in the ? Court of General Sessions yesterday afternoon, and ? entered a plea of Guilty to the indictment recently 1 found against him by the Grand Jury, for " leav- , mg this State, with the intention of receiving o or giving a challenge." The punishment lor 1 the offence, under the statute, is imprisonment in t: the State Prison for a term not less than two years, j. nor more than seven. c He rose and read the following special plea, 1 which had been previously placed in type at the c office of the Courier. ? The Diatrict Attorney aaid that he should move for c judgment in the case on Tuesday next, at which c time the Court said that they should pronounce sentence. Webb intends to apply to the Governor lor immediate pardon, and we understand that petitions are already in circulation for that purpose. Mat it Please the Covet:? lam wall aware of my right to plead the "general isaue,"in answer to this arraignment for aa act, which the Law pleases to consider a grave misdemeanor and punishes with confinement is the State Prison. I know too, that if I admit the truth of the alleged o(fence,or if I should be convicted by ajury of my countryman of having been guilty of die offence with which 1 stand charged, tbia Court must of necessity, award the punishment which the law prescribes. But I may be permitted to remark, that whilst the law recognises in our Statute Books constructive crimes, the period has not yet arrived when in the estimation of an enlightened people, it can visit upon the citizen, constructive ignominy. It is the offence which 1 hare committed againstthe law, and not the law itself, which can take from me or mine, one iots of that character or respectability which in the judgment of the world 1 may have acquir. ed; it is the nature ofthe crime, and not the character of the punishment which the law awards it?the act itself, and not the convict's cell?which in the judgment of honest and honorable men, will (orcver determine the mca- ( sure of censure or disgrsce entailed upon mo tor the coniminsion of the act for which I am now arraigned at the bar of justice, and in relation to which I have no alternative? but traokly and fully to admit my olfeudiug. I am not ignorant of tlio Law's mercy in presumiug every man innocent until a Jury of his Peers shall have passed upon and proclaimed his guilt. But it does not comport with ray sense of self-respect, and I may be permitted to believe, would not accord with that line of conduct which I have uniformly endeavored to pursue, wers I to shrink from the full responsibility of any of my acts, whatever msy be the oonsequences thoy entail upen me. To proclaim myself " not guilty "of the act for which I , am now arraigned, constitutes iherefore, no part of my j intentions ; and I am alike prepared to admit the truth of ( the charge upon which I am arraigned, and to meet the punishment which the law imposes. Yet I stand not here t uiv aavncmie ui uuviuuk 3 aim 1 imiuiu nuiuiu^ in any tun, that moit individual* who engage in a Duel, do *o with reluctance, and from a deep sense of injury, or in obedience to the opinions of that society of which they constitute a part. Nor need I tell you, sir, that this to universally pronounced " barbarous practice," is not only the ollspring of civilization, but even in our own country, is encouraged, countenanced, and under ccrtuin circumstance', rendered absolutely necessary, by that class of our iellow citizens, whose opinions are entitled to, and will ever receive the highest consideration, because of their superior mental culture and the responsible positions which they occupy. rublic opinion is, too frequently, stronger than the law: and public opinion has, at least until recently, demanded of men occupy ing prominent positions in life, and particularly of the oihcersof the army and navy, a ready acquiescence in the requirements of the code of honor. It was my lot to eater the army at an earlv age ; and on retiring from itl found my self deeply involved in the discussion of public affairs, and fully determined, however erroneoualy, to abide by those principles and practice upon those precepts which had constituted ray 1 ule of action in the military profession. A frank and fearless discharge of my editorial duties has been the consequence ; and aa we are all liable to error, mine have doubtless been frequent and numerous? not the least important of which, in the eyes of politicians is my uniform custom of speaking of public men and their measures aa in my opinion they merit, instead of regulating ray language by considerations of prudenca, or being guided in my praise or censure by tna dictates and requirements of party. I have said that I brought with me into civil life the intention to practice upon those principles which had been my guide as a military man ; and prominent among these, was a determination always to hold myself personally re- , sponsible for whatever 1 wrote or published in relation to individuals. 1 had not only recognized the principle of personal responsibility while in the army, but 1 bad on more than one ocaation, practised upon it; and this fact ' being notorious, candid men cannot fail to perceive that 1 when called upon to give to a distinguished member of 1 Congress that meeting which has lea to my present em' barrassment, I had no alternative but to yield to the call 1 or fliiflwr in the estimation of the pri nt maioritv of those B whose friendship and good opinion I am moat anxious to r retainBut the Grand Jury charge, that I hare offended against the law. Literally speaking, this cannet be denied; but I mar well question the moral right of any body of men representing this community, attempting to revive against me an obselete statute, which tne practices of all our Courts and the studied n eglect of every Grand Jury which has convened in this city since its enactment, have virtually proclaimed to be a dead letter. If it was their duty to do so, it is greatly to be regretted that all the Grand Juries whioh have preceded them, should so grossly have neglected to discharge their duty to the public; and by so doing, latil a snare Tor the unwary, by exposing them to the malice of a set of men, who, pretending their superior morality, are always ready to gratify thair feelings of personal hostility against individuals, if the broad mantle of the law can be brought to shield them from an honest public indignation. I have already suggested that public opinion is sometimes stronger than tne law; and I need offer no better evidence of this than the well known fact, that long as Ant 1-Duelli ig laws have occupied a place upon our Statute books, and frequent as have been the duels in the immediate vicinity of this city, 1 am the first and only per ' son against whom the ^penalties of this law have been at- I tempted to be enforced. And I trust it will not be con- ' sidered presumptuous in me to direct your attention to the J history of very many of the distinguished men of our State , and nation in connection with this practice. Look into t our Legislative Halls; examine the annals of our learned Cifesaiuns; enquire into the personal history ol our I nate, constituting the highest legal tribunal of onr State: go to the Bench itself?and what is more, approach even the SMred Book, and you will find in each and every of the distinguished classes 1 have named, and in every walk in life, men who have openly offended in this regard; and in consequence, the law, by the studied and long continued neglect of our Courts, our Grand Juries, and our people at large, has ever heretofore, boon considered a dead letter. Ana 1 would respectfully inquire whether, when in consequence of such neglect to enforce upon offenders the provisions of this law, 1 have become subject to its penalties and put upon my defence by the very body which baa heretofore permitted it to be violated with impunity, I would respectfully ask whether, under such circumstances, there is either justice or propriety in enforcing its provisional , I need not remind you that the offences against this law j have been very numerous; and that in very many in stances the lives of some of our most useful and estimable ' fallow citizens have been sacrificed to a practice which, in my person, is about to be proclaimed a crime; and yet, where ia the instance of arraignment and punishment for a such offence? Turn to the records of your criminal tri- i bunala, and you will look in vain for any previous arraignment of this character: but turn from the record to the Court itself, and you will there find, appointed to ad? i-? i?j it.. miTll^TPr IOM very llW.Qini WIIU I1HU VMruwu again it it* provisions! Never were the much vaunted , "glorious uncertainties of tho liw" more strikingly apparent thaa in thia instance; but when this uncertainty m. , voire* the liberty of thocitizen, it become*opprmire and c dangerous. When the law i* *o administered, either here [ or elsewhere, aa to entrap the unwary into its meshes, J. there must be something wrong in the organisation of our J Juries and the practice of our Courts; and when the Orand j Inquest of the City and County of New York can, how- t ever unintentionally on their part, be converted into an ? instrument of oppression, it is quite time that the same Jiublic opinion which compels the offence against the aw, should shield the offender and severely rebuke all ' those who from selfish and wicked motives, aud without . notice, seek thus to revive the penalties of a long nsglcct- ' ed and virtually obsolete statute. Had I taken the life of a valued citizen, or eshibitedto- p wards my adversary a saves* and malignant purpoee? < an<l in consequence,'did public opinion end a sound pub- 1 lie feeling demand my punishment, I think I know myself n sufficiently well to warrant the declaration that I should " have entered the same plea of " guilty" which I now an- ^ thoriseto be recorded against me, without an effort to ' aave mvseli from the penalties of a law thua onespectedly , and as 1 think, unjustly reviveil for other than good and patriotic purpose*. But this is not the case. And w hile I , do not pretend to deny that 1 left this State for the rtpress | purpose of fighting a duel with tho Hon. Thomas F. Mar- r shall, thera are those who will bear witness that I utterly * refused to sanction any arrangement which would givo to ' our meeting a sanguinary appearance. With me it was 1 strictly a point of honor; and my declining to fight at four or eight paces, my repeated refusals to suffer the meeting ' to take place on a Sunday, and my solemn determination ' that under no, would 1 take the life of my \ antagonist, can leave no donht on the minds of honorable mon, that I whs notactusted by my feeling of molice towards him, but that I simply acted in accordance with the diotate* of that public opinion which I had not the moral courage to contemn -that public, opinion which is alike arbitrary and unjnat, and which, while it forever disgraces all who shrink fram these personal rencontres, et the seme time gravely censure all who engage In them It was with ma but a choice of eviia. I selected what I deemed the least, and solemnly resolving that in no con tingeney won Id I take tho life of my adversary, 1 had a right to anppoee, that a law which had never been en- . forced against othsrs, would not be revived against me. I need not tell yau that from tho duel 1 alone am the sufferer ; while had I been actuated by the same feelings as my antagonist, whose boost it la that he songht my life, he might long eluoo have been the tenant ? the silent tomb, and 1 a wan dares from my home and tha object of ?

But 1 nought not hu lite , I rented all sanguinary propositions and endeavored to holanite the custom to which I waa yielding, in obedience > tha requirameuta of that very people in whose nam.- 1 m now arraigned. And when the ait air had terminated, proclaimed my aatiai action with the result?appealed to ly friend) to bear witneaa that I had not (ought bi) lila? vow ail that I bore him no malice?and u ban applied to, tferrd moat cheerfully to take him by the hand, and let he p..?t be buried iu oblivion These are the tact) of the caae? thia the character?thia be extent of my offence against the law.

With that view I beg leave to read o you the following afldarit and letter, which was only ntended for the public eyo in the event of my falling; and would further add in relation to its contents, that if my idversary had not nubliely avowed n fixed determination 0 take my lile, and boaated of his ability to do so, I should ertaiuly nave firad my niatol in the air. As it was, I magined that my only safety was in taking his life, or by lightly wounding him, endeavor to derange his lire.

In my reply to that assault, I think I went 110 (urhcr than the nature of the assault required ; and although may not, as society is constituted, refuse to give him the noeting he demands, my owu feelings and reguid for the eelings of one who ia dearer to me than ull othi rs, pr. mpta no to determine net to take his life, and to do nothing but vhat it necessary in self defence, although 1 an wrli iwure that such decision nect ssarily plncru my own life n greater danger,?knawing at I do, that ho (Mr. Marihall) hat publicly proclaimed his determination to liavo ny " heart's blood."
