The Ci.inton Revolutionary Papers ?We have ^ another batch of these venerable letters in type, and i sitatl be able to pubkak tliem to-morrow or Monday. ] We have also re ceived from Col. Beekman a large j package of papers ami documents, as far back as ! 1752?or nearly a century ago. They are curious.

It I is a " Review <>t (he American Newsoaoer Press." ' first a|>i>earuig in|JnfJJietober number of the "Forctgu liuarterJy Keview," and written, us we are informed, by Charles Dickens himself?and certainly expressing such epinions and in that particular language which might be expected from such a talented penny-a-liner. This review is, without exception, one ol the in< st savage articles on a literary subject that ever appeared ia a British journal?and tnay be considered the manifesto or declaration of war of the L mdon literati, against that portion of the American newspaper press that oppose the copyright law, and refuse to acknowledge the supremacy, of English authorship and English genius. This remarkable review contains twenty-six octavo pages, or seven columns of nnnioii matter, written with tiie force, originality, and genuine blackguardism oi a penny-a-liner of the London pres-i, who happens to have been suddenly elevated to a great height in literature, by some singular accident in the progress of society. Il is a perfect specimen oi the Pickwick style and Pickwick temper. The principil newspapers cut up, or mentioned iu this savage article, are the New York Herald, and \\*w York Courier Sc Enquirer, and th: style in which they are treated is a caution to the Mo- , hawks. The Weekly Herald, of this day, price only a sixpenee, will contain this wonderful article at length?and next week we shall enter upon an ana lysis of its views, facts, falsehoods, assertions, j tnd puri?oses. The power and intluence of the I American newspaper press is producing a revolution in Kuroi*?, and the aristocrats and monopolists in government and literature of that continent, find that they must do something to stay the progress of light. The war is now begun, And damned be ho who first cries " hold?enough !'" > Daniel Wkbstkr and John C. Scenckr in the Field.?Mr. Webster has been invited to a public dinner, to he given in this city next week? and it is highly probable that he will accept the offer, and hi' present on the occasion on his way to Washing" 1 ton to |oin the cabinet. We also bear that John C. { - neer, the Secretary of War, will be present at 1 the same dinner?and probably, Caleb Gushing may I #> ton hut thia ia nnl an /'crtnin This occasion, therefore, should Mr. Webster ac- \ cept the invitation, will be a very important one.? I The recent melancholy defeat of the whigs in Ohio, 11 ems to have given the coup ilr grace to Henry Clay and the present whig organization. A re-organiza- 1 Hon of the party at this crisis, under the inlluence of a Webster, Spencer, Cushing and others, embracing ^ also General Scott, might have a very remarkable t effect on the cotirse of public affairs, and the fu- ? ture measures ot the administration. Mr. Webster lias not yet left the cabinet?Mr. Spencer is still , then?General Scott is in his new position at the head of the war office, and the opinion is entertained by many in this quarter that a large portion of the whig members of Congress, under their present defeats, will be disposed to separate ftotn Mr. Clay and to re-unite their destinies with the President and his present cabinet. In such a view of the state of things,the tendency , ot the administration towards the locofocos and the , influence of the "corporal's guard" would he check- ( ed, and turned in a new direction. The positions j ol Mr Webs'.eror John C. Spencer, are certainly not ^ sufficiently clear, and a public dinner in this city would allord them an opportanity to put themselves | right, and throw their thoughts as high up to heaven > as the waters of the Fark fountain. te a r.i.e Brewing?The Congressional Nominations for the Wall struet District.?These no- c minationsarenow complete.

All the defaulters, financiers, large capitalists, and bankers of Wall street, are very much otlended with the North River rabble, and threaten to swallow them up on Monday nig next.

The bushel or half bushel for struck measure, may be of any width at the top, if it contains the right quantity, which is not so much as the bushel for struck measure. Sealers are in the habit of sealing measures lor heaped measure, which are not as wide at the lop as the law directs, and they are, therefore, liable for damages.

The Amphitheatre.?Among the most important movements making for the winter campaign for the amusement of the public, is the refitting, extending and improving of the Bcntxry Jtmphitheatre. The Manager, Mr. N. Howes, has been assiduously engaged (or a length of time in decorating and remodelling the interior in a style of elegance and convenience that must secure to this interesting entertainment patronage of the highest order, and will render it the only place of amusement in the Bowry that a decentman may safely attend with his family. Mr. Lewis, the artist engaged in ornamenting the interior, has nearly completed his labors. A new and beautiful drop cupfain has been painted? the proceneum and arena newly ornamented, tcc.? The audience will be so arranged as to completely cttrentin/l (Kn arsn i BAritattiinir oftor (Kn mnnnor nt the ancient coliseum. The most important feature of the alteration is the introduction ofparaquet boxes for the accommodation of families. These boxes are placed immediately in front of the dress circle, and ure calculated to hold six persons only, so that a person wishing to indulge nis wile ana children with an evening'sentertainment at the Amphitheatre may, if he pleases, by making timely a;iplication, place them during the evening beyond the reach of intrusion or annoyance of any description. We are informed that the company is composed of equestrian talent of the highest order, and there is every probability that this elegant and inoffensive amusement will take the lead throughout the season. The troupe will give their first performance about the beginning of November. Niblo's ? Jerome had a full Saloon last night.?

We regret the pantomimic powers of this lady have not been more brought out duriug the season. She is a very superior artiste. The Indian dance was unique. We iierceive Miss Wells takes a benefit on Tuesday next?the lady is deservedly popular and is sure of a full Saloon. Chatham Theatre.?The excellent variety of pieces that are produced at this establishment, with a talented company to enact them, attract highly numerous audiences. The Chatham is now, judg ing from the brilliant array of beauty that adorns the boxes each evening, the moat fashionable place of amusement in the city.

We hare nothing as yet from the promised pamphlet of Messrs. Boorman, Johnston h Co. It was reported that its contents are so rich, its argument so conclusive, and its style so seductive, that no person can arise from its perusal without being firmly convinced of the expediency and profit ol that national blessing, the repudiation of unfortu nate speculations. By all means let's have it, (bras a nation we are heinously in want of good reasons for that which have been so largely practised publicly and privately. The shipments of specie to New Orleans have been so large oi late, that the insurance offices decline further risk at present. The hhakspeare yesterday carried $300,000. Specie is afloat in Alabama. The steamboat New Albany brought down the Alabama last week $43,000. It was forwarded by soma of the land officers in the interior 4 for government purposes. The mail steamer Medway, from Vera Cruz, arrived at Havana on the 33th, with $300,000 in specie. At Mobile, on the 13th, the Bank of Mobile was ottering to check on New York at 18 per cent, premium, and sales made ol sight checks on Yew York at 17 per cent.; 00 day bills on New York 16 per cent., and it is said that lower figures have been submitted to. There has been an active demand for specie, which commands 33 to 36 per cent., and the supply is not equal to the demand. The resumption of the Southern Banks, and the curtailment oftheir depreciated credits,reduciug the currency in all .sections to the constitutional level, has equalizedit in all sections, and caused the rates of lulls, instead of ruling nominally higher against a section where irredeemable bills were largelydepreciated,tollactuate for or against any given point, governed entirely by the actual balance duo to or from it. This is particularly the case at New Orleans, whrre exchange is heavily against the whole world and in favor of New Orleans, with every prospect, under the impulse given by low prices to exports, of a still further fall in bills. Within the last fourteen days bills in New York on New Orleans have risen from J to 3 per cent premium, a rate almost unprecedented at this season of the year, when so small a portion of the crops have come lorwnru. ice reiee OI uiuc lu-uey wrau as 101low :?

The tine ship Shakspeare carried out a heavy amount. These shipments are partly for the purchase of cotton, but mostly to draw against, under the supposition that bills will be yet higher. A large amount will undoubtedly find its way up the river in payment of produceaold at New Orleans, the growth of the Western States. The tiadu of those States has hitherto been circuitous, or what is superficially called favorable, between them and New Orleans, and unfavorable between them and the Eastern States. This has resulted from tho fact that they ?cll their produce in New Orleana and buy their supplies at the eaat. Thia produce, to the extent of $30,000,000 per annum, goae to NewOrleena independently oi cotton, of which about 033.000,000 worth ii received annually at that port. During the paat year the purchaaea of imported and manufactured goods from the Eaat have been amall; hence, inatead of there being a demand for eaatern funda at New Orleana in payment of produce, they become unavailable, and apecie ia taken in payment, more especially aa the irredeemable billa of New Orleana no longer paaa current. The buaineaa thia fall, with the Wett, on the part of New York has been exceedingly small, while the quantity of produce to oome to market is large, and its low prices warrant the belief that the exports will be great. The probability ia, therefore, that the demand for apecie at New Orleana may be large?that ia to say, that the premium on bills may continue ao high aa to afford a profitable employment to capital, in shipping it and drawing against it. In thia state ol attain the absurdity of the New Orleana banks in so long deferring their return to specie payments becomes very conspicuous. Had they resumed seasonably, and preserved public con. fidence in their solidity, they would have commanded an immense circulation through the valley of the Mississippi, in place of that specie which is now about " to flow up" that mighty river. The banks have been so miserably mismanaged, however, that the conviction becomes inevitable that they are entirely insolvent, and should they resume now they cannot regain public confidence. Their pica for not resuming before was the farcical one that "exchange was against them," meaning the depreciation of their own paper, caused by their own folly. That paper has now ceased to be currency, and exchange ia 'J to 3 per cent in their favor. What plea have thay now t None but the truth ; the mask ia torn from them, and utter insolvency is the only reason for not paying. The process now going on of distributing specie through, out the country, and filling the channels of elreclatiou with the constitutional currency, will soon have effected its object, and business will move on its broad and solid foundation. The vast volumes of exchangeable values will resume their movements.

This is now going on between hernand New Orleans, h) the practictl operation of taking dollars out of the market here,pnttingthom on board a ship, carrying them to New Orleans, and turning them Into the market there. The Shakspeare, for instance, takes $900,000 out of the New York market, and in 30 day* they will lie in the New Orleans market.
