I NEW YORK IIKKALD New York, Monday, (K-tober 44, 1M44. To Adverllaer*. Mr. E. B. Tl'ttlk, who has been, for a few weeks past, collecting advertiaem nts lor this paper, is no longer authorise I to transact any such business for this otlice. Nor is any person whatevnr, in the city, allowi-d to ilo so. Advertisers of all kinds, aru requested to call at the oilieeol* the FT uiLu, northiveit coiner nf Fulton and Xat sau sf/ < ?;>, and leave their advertisements ct the desk. We has e been compelled to abolish entirely the system i f allowing persons to collect advertisements, from the re i-lent recurrence of misunderstandings, caused by the agreements entered into by such persons without any authority or sanction from us. The circulation of the Herald is so comprehensive, t eing greater than that of any other paper in the country, and the pressure of real business upon our columns is so great, that we are under the necessity of adopting this i .ui r iti order to do full and ample justice to,those patrons who a Ivertise with us, and have patronised us, in - pite of all the malignant opposition raised in this city, or Minded to loriigii lands. The Clinton Revolutionary Paters.? We rive to-day another batch of these interesting |>a|<er?. We particularly call attention to the remarkable iter ?f Governor George Clinton to tieneral Putnam. Thereby lmngs a tule. Dickens's Klrit \Voi<l? on America. The " First Words" of Charles Dickens on America, being a most extraordinary anil savage Itev iew of " American Newspaper Literature," is now published in an " Extra Weekly IIkrxld," and is for sale at this office?price sixpence. This Review is the first gun in the long war that has at last broken out between the literature of America and that of Europe, for the empire over the human iniud in both hemispheres. As an example of taste, judgment, accuracy, or style, it is of the most savage and barbarous tirades that ever disgraced the literature of any country. The only accurate statement it contains is the admission that the New York Herald has a circulation of thirty thousand copies?that its readers number over one hundred thousand?that it penetrates every nook and corner of the United States?that it is read from the President of the United States down to the simplest mechanic?and that, as in London, people ask for the " Times" as the leading journal, so in New York, they ask for the "Herald." The.. are the only tacts?all the rest is falsehood, fnrv, misrepresentation, misquotation, violence, vulgarity, heartlessness, coarseness, and all that low species ol tact which distinguishes the literary works of Dickens already before the public. We consider this singularreview as a step in the gre.i' revolution in literature, politics, government, liberty and right, which the press of this country have begun, and which is destined to overturn all the existing institutions of Europe at no distant day, and to create in their stead republican government, republican literature, and republican philosophy. At our leisure we shall review the reviewer, and make Dickens drink to the very dregs the very cup ho! has mixed tor others to take. The Ei.kctiov.?We are within ten days of the election in this State?and a very important election it is, in many points of view. The candidates for Coventor are selected?and the various other enndidates will also be chosen in the course of the week. This election will have a very important influence >n ih" policy of the State and nation?as'well as the prospects of eminent statesmen now before the country for the next Presidency. In the recent elections, Mr. Clay has been most unfortunate?most unlucky?and although there are certain points ot his policy that cannot be approved, yet his bad luck makes our heart bleed?and we are almost persuaded to come out in his favor, purely nnt of sympathy for his forlorn condition. Wo.j;encrally give our aid to the weak?and who is weaker than poor Harry Clay! We usually pity the distressed?and who is more distressed than Harry of the West! In the recent elections, he has lost everything but Kentucky?for as to New Jersey, it will turn and turn, like Jem Crow, to be on the strong side?and Vermont is only one poor coon sitting on a tree in the Green Mountains, and trying to crack a nut out of very desperation. No man was ever in a more lamentable situation than Henry Clay. He has a hot and hasty temper?and those about him have been hotter and hastier. They have almost reined a capital fellow by their violence, and savage and silly opposition to Captain Tyler, who has shown more stud than fliey ever dreamt of. Vet there is some ho|<e for Mr. Cluy. There is yet a drop in the ocean. If the wliigscan maintain their position in this folate by electing Mr. Bradlsh, Mr. Clay may recover his lost ground, provided he conducts his affairs better hereafter, and selects wiser advisers for the next two years Out of pure charity ?out of an honest-felt compassion?we are very much disposed to supjxjrt Mr. Hradish, merely to help Clay a little in his hour of trouble?merely to set him on his legs and try his luck again. The locofocos will probably carry the legislature?but if it is not too late, generous men might be prevailed upon to turn out and elect Mr Hradish, simply to prevent Mr Clay from coming to some untimely end. Mr. Hradish himself is a very worthy, excellent man?so is Mr. Rouck?but still the best reason for electing Mr. Hradish, would be the relief it would give to Mr. Clay?the encouragement to his friends?and the hope that he could yet maintain himself as a candidate for the Presidency. The election ol Mr. Hradish would also demonstrate the necessity of the locofocos dropping Mr. Van Buren? and in this way two birds might be killed with one stone. These things will be matter of reflection during the week. We have compassion tor Mr. Clay, if it would not interfere with the most sound system of . ttblic policy. Tin* coon ought not to r.e killed outright, notwithstanding the preparations of the barbarians of Kindcrhook to go a hunting. We ought to give him another chance for his life. Coonskina are too cheap. John C. Cai.houn ?We understand that this eminent statesman intends to retire at an early day from tie United States Senate?probably to become a candidate tor the next presidency, whether he is nominated by the Convention or not. His residence is in Pendleton, S. C., where be lives on his plantation, studying cotton and currency?politics and society, with the acute eye of a metaphysician. He will not visit New York, or the North, till next summer?in order to prevent lus motive from being suspected. He will then come as far as this city? go to New Haven, where fie was educated?and probably take the fashionable tour through New York, New England and Canada Perhaps Calhoun, Clay and Van Buren may all meet next summer at Saratoga?who knows ? N. 11.?James Hamilton* of S. 0., just returned from England, is in this city, and is favorable to Mr. Calhoun's election to the ! i - ! ney A mighty movement is n progress. Bkf.v.? Mr Webster sj?ent last Tuesday admiring the oxen and " virgin heifers" at the Franklin Cattle Show, New Hampshire He prefers chowder. however, to beef. The latter is Mr. Clay's preference. tiling Hotei??The Express has been retailing some ridiculous gossip about robberies said to have been committed at the <?lobe Hotel. We are informed that there is no foundation whatever for -uch statements. The (llobe Hotel is kept in first raie style by Blancard?and the greatest care is taken to prevent any robberies whatever within the walls of the building. Ct Riot's Libel Cases.?There is a libel case lo be tried ugainst James W. Webb, of the "Courier and Enquirer," in November next, in Montgomery county. The libel is founded on the publication of a critici-m against the works of J. Fenniinore Cooper, in which some wrong sided compliments are paid to the author's motives in writing and publishing certain books. There is also a libel to be tried against JainesG. Bennett, of the New York llerald, in Pen Yan,Yates County, sometime in November. This libel consists of a statement made against a religious society, calling it abolition, we believe?also some general comments on the commercial system of Pen Yan? in common with that of other towns?and condemning its mode of doing business?or of inducing the farmers to buy goods. No individuals were mentioned or alluded to?it was merely a general commentary on a system, which has ruined many banks and towns in Western New York and other narts of the country, for the last ten years. To bring it within the pale of the libel law, all the store-keepers of Yates county, made serrate affidavits that it meant them. In every particular the thing resembles the story told of Dr. Johnson, who in describing the characters of a curious club in the " Rambler," was threatened with a libel suit, by a set of men down in Yorkshire, that he had never heard of before. The first case?that of Webb's?involves the very curious point of literary criticism?how far a critic can examine or censure a work, in connection with | the author's motives and personal history. The other case, that of Bennett, involves the liberty of discussion on commercial topics?how far a public journalist can go in examining a bank system?or commercial system?or credit system?in any jwrticular town or country, without knowing or alluding to individuals. It thediseussionofliteraryor commercial subjects are prohibited, what are we to think of the recent Review of " American Newspaper Literature," written by Dickens, in which the principal writers of the press are set down as the greatest villains in existence?charged with every crime?and treated as perfect cut throats. OOJohn Jones,of the "Madisonian,"now and then makes his appearance in very funny habiliments. During the last week, his paper.has had leaders on the policy of the President, very well and somewhat powerfully written?containing some ve ry curious doctrines?but generally right, as we understand the constitution. In his last sheet he begins to jest on Mr. Webster, Secretary of State, in such a way as does not become an official organ to speak, unless the Secretary is to be turned out In the same sheet, he pours out a flood of highsounding compliments on Mike Walsh?considers him ' no ordinary man," " a genius,"icc. tec. But Mr. Webster is compared to some i oor blockhead in Boston, culled Weeks, and John very curiously rel>eats the question, "Which is right 1 Weeks or Webster!"?" which is right J Weeks or Webster 1" All this is very droll and means something. We want to have some light. We want to know the position of Mr. W ebster?the position of the "Guard" ?the position of Weeks?the position of Mike Walsh?the position of John Jones. Really every thing seems to be getting into confusion in these latter days. The Spoils.?The following are nmong the fat offices that will fall to the lot of the Locofuvos of this city, in case Bouck should be elected Governor :? Health officer at the Quarantine, worth $10,000 who has the appointment ol resident physician, worth 2,000 and health commissioner, worth 2,000 Inspector of Tohuceo, worth 8,000 Do I'ot and Pearl Ashes, 10,000 Do Flour and meal, . 8,000 Do Measurer-General of Grain, 1,600 Do of Staves, 1,600 Do Quercitron Bark, 600 Do General ot Domestic Distilled Spirits, 3,(KM) Do Green Hides and Skins, 2,000 Do Flaxseed, 600 Weigher General of Merchandize, 1,500 Six inspectors ot' Beef and Pork, each 2,000 Seven o' Sole Leather, each 1,006 Six of Domestic Distilled Spirits, 1,000 Six Wardens of the Port, 3,000 Three Harlior Masters, 1,600 Five Trustees of the Seaman's Fund and Retreat,[unkown] Keeper of State Arsenal, IkC. 1,000 In addition to this comes the anointment ol Surrogates of the several counties, in place of those whose terms of office expire, which is one of the uf-tii omces wiinin nis gilt, and worth troni ft to S'10,000. Also, notaries, commissioners of deeds, private secretary, fee. fee, the two former of which are made ad infinitum, without end, without number, and are worth from $200 to $2000. The numerous deputies dependent on the offices of Inspector of Flour, (fee. of this city, will swell the patronage in this city alone to over $100,(KM). In filling these f at offices, the members of Assembly will have the principal influence Hence the contest and effort among the various (liquet to procure nominations of men in particular interests. Tfie persons nominated at Tammany Hall?thirteen in number?have already, we understand, formed a clique, for the puri>ose of giving a direction to this patronage. This project or plan is, however, only the usual way in which offices of profit are dealt out. The candidates will fie selected by the Assemli ymrn, before they go to Albany, and a scene of amusing strife has already begun, that would furnish philosophical examples sufficient to enable another Aristotle to write another book; or Plato, a new edition of his " republic." Mr. J. IIorslky Palmer.?This great English financier, f ormer Governor of the Bank of England, and present holder and owner of one-third of the banks in the United States, has nearly closed his efforts in this country, Hnd will shortly return home. Like a sensible knight, Mr. P. has taken it ensy since he has been among us, and finding he couldn't raise the wind out of his "scrip," most of which wasn't worth the paper it was printed on, he he has quietly " swapped" a good part of it off for houses and lots, or any thing else he could get, keeping his jolly, good natured, laughing, plum|>-face, and his temper in the bargain ; for what a tool a man is to lose them and his cash too. He has ?ir>ur<i nimawdv, nri^iuon, Saratoga, Mallston, and the neighboring cities, and is now rusticating at ttic beautiful country seal of Colonel James B. Murray, on Creenlield Hill, Connecticut, where he will, doubtless, close up his North American tri(*<?not trusts?and sail for " Merrie Kngland" in the course ot a week or two. We wish he would write a book of his travels, and tell lis what he thinks of Yankee land?her goahead railroads, banks, steamboats, aqueducts, and other " sich like" commodities (Jive us your Journal, Sir John, and we'll print it for nothing, and speak for a dozen copies. We'll beat Dickens all hollow. A Marchioness Comimo.? We have heard that the Marchioness of Wellesley will return to Baltimore in a few months. It will be recollected that our last accounts from England, br?ught the intelligence of the death of the Marquis ot Wellesley, the elder brother of the Duke of Wellington. The Marchioness is a lady of Baltimore, first Miss Caton, then Mrs. Patterson, the grand daughter ol Caroll of Carrollton, one of the signers of the Declaration of lndependence. Mrs. Patterson went to Europe in the bloom of youth and beauty, and soon after became the wife of the Marquis of Wellesley. Her re-appearance in Baltimore will creates sensation She left a simple woman, without title?she returns a Marchioness of the British Peerage. The Abolitionists Foiled.?The Judges of the Supreme Court of Massachusetts have decided that in the'case ot I,attemar, the f ugitive slave, they had no jurisdiction, lieeause he was arrested by his master for a larceny committed in another 8tate. Judge Shaw also said, that, wiih the evidence belore him, he should be obliged to order the slave to he sent back as a fugitive, if such action were applied for, and not interdicted by the previous war| rant for larceny. Fifteenth Annual Fair of the American I lilt It ute At Nlblo'a Garden?1844. Thibd Wkkk. Tliii morning commences the third week of the Fair. Iiy the advertisement ia another column, it will be seen that it continues until Wedneday evening, when the closing address will be delivered. Display of Saws.?The display of saws, as you ascend to the gallery from the saloon, is truly mag nificent. The large circular one in the centre is SO inches in diameter, and is believed to be the largest single plate ever made. While on this subject, we would remark, that last spring a snecial committee made a report on the subject of this manufacture, from which we quote:? " KcroHT?The ipec ial committee of the American Inctitute, to w hom w us referred the examination of Mr. Hi they visited the extensive manufactory of H. Hoe St Co. nt the corner ef Broome and Sheriff streets, and there witnessed the machines in i|uestion in operation. There are two of these: one for grinding long saws, the other for grinding circular saws. The advantages to he obtained from the use of these machines are highly important, as will manifestly appear to those who are accustomed to use saws of the description which they aie calculated to griud. Their merit consists in the power which they place at thedis|>osalof the workman engaged in the manufacture of saw s to make them perfectly true and regular in thickness, or thick or thin at any particular part they please, thus preparing the cutting edge of long saws to operate with less set, and strengthening circular saws by gradually increasing them in thickness, from their cutting edge to their centre. The truth and uniformity of their surface makes in all cases less set in the saw teeth necessary, and on this account it will take less power to drive the raws made by these machines than is required for the use of the ordinary hammered an ! ground saws ; besides, tliey will not require so frequent sharpening?1>? lets liable to become heated, and by cutting relatively a much narrower curl, produce a saving in timber which, in some varieties, is an object of considerable importance. Your committee are of unanimous opinion, that in the apparatus invented by Mr. Richard M. Hoe, as above described, he has displayed great ingenuity and tact in the adaptation of machinery to the production of results in the manufacture of saws which may with propriety be denominated the ne plus ultra of thenrt. [Signed] JAMES HAMILTON, EDWARD CLARK. THOS. B. STILLMAN, JAMES WILSON, JOSEPH CURTIS, New York, April, 1843." These saws are all made of Sanderson, Brothers & Co.'s celebrated cast steel. We have enquired, and find these c-lehrated sawn can he had n? the nf. fice ot' the concern, Nos 2) and 31 Gold street, or of the principal hardware stores in the United States. Fish's Novelty Cook Stove.?As this is just the season for purchasing stoves, we specially invite the attention of those about purchasing to Fisk's patent Novelty Cook Stove, now exhibiting at the Fair, in the extremity of the main walk- It is very highly recommended, and we have seen a great many people examining and praising it- This establishment is at 2(W Water street. Hair Dye-No. 1087?Three bottles, by C. J llosevelt, 71 Maiden lane, said to be a su(>erior article. Self-Acting Lami*?No. 1129, by A. R. H. Webb, 118 Broadway?A very capital lamp. Perforated Zinc?No. 1145?A Bpecimen by A. Jones, 192 Broadway. Medicai. Intelligence.?The prospects of the old College of Physicians and Surgeons are highly promising. A great number of students have already entered their names. At the clinit/uf of the Stuyvesant Institute School last Saturday, just onrjyaticnt appeared, and his case was of little importance, being an illustration of the I bad effects of an injudicious use of mercury. At | the Crosby street clinique the average attendance of patients is thirty each day. The " College of Meo^cine and Pharmacy," is succeeding remarkably well. The fact is, an association of regular physicians is the only institution that can successfully wage war against quackery. Decision in Bankruptcy.?Judge Engle, of Missouri, has decided that the property acquired by a Bankrupt, after filing his petition for the benefit of the law, is exempt from seizure on execution for debts contracted prior to filing his petition as mentioned in his schedule. The decision was given on a motion for an injunction to stay an execution levied upon the effects of a bankrupt, after he had petitioned for a discharge under the law of Congress. The next U. S. Senate.?If the locofocos have a majority in the next New York and Indiana legislatures there will be a tie in the next U. S. Senate, leaving Tennessee out of the calculation, and supposing that Willie P. Mangum will neither resign or be instructed. A New Movement ?It has become very much the fashion recently for actors in this country, who cannot reach jhe topmast round of the ladder of their profession, to leave the stage, and give lectures on elocution. Murdoch has done this ; Barton, of New Orleans, is about to do the same; and about a score of " small fry" are following the same system. Emigration?Harp Winter.?Over 5,000,000 of squirrels crossed the Niagara River, near Buffalo, last week, and immediately pushed off south to spend the winter. When the Indians see such a movement among the squirrels, they put their finger on their nose, and say, " Look out for blankets!" Any thing of the coons 1 Burning of a Steamship.?The British steamship North America, lying at Boston, came near being wholly burnt up last Friday night. All her interior has been destroyed and most of her upper deck. She was to have left the next day for Halifax and the intermediate ports. Insurance companies in Wall street have $15,000 risked on her. Canadian Seat of Government.?It will not be long before the seat of Government is removed from Kingston. There is a perfect fever raging relative to it. It will be about the same time Sir Charles Bagot returns home. The Rhode Island Queen.?The beautiful Queen of Rhode Island, Mrs. Parian, has arrived in this city and put up at the City Hotel. She will shortly deliver a lecture at Tammany Hall on the position and prospects of Rhode Island. 0(J- Henrique*, 51 William street, has just received 400,000 Principe segars, once belonging to the stock of Mr. Tucker in Boston, a | erfect trow nuitul in the heavenly shrub. They are five years old? and fragrant as the breath of Paradise before Satan crawled in under the railing. Quick Passage.?The packet ship Virginian, Captain Allen, arrived yesterday in twenty-one days passage from Liverpool. HThk Tear.?Miss Foote distanced Black Nose and Botzaris, althe Oakland Race Course, Missouri, Oct. 7th. Time, 7. 47^. Gome.?The Guards froin Canada. When they left the country they were piquc-d. Mn.waftkie.?The locofocos, at the recent election here, have obtained a majority of botli branches of the legislature. Hon. L. Linn, U. S. S., has reached St. Louis. Hon. T Benton, when last heard from, was in the Ohio river. Major Davezac.?The s|ieech of this gentleman at Tammany Hall the other night, was a most excellent one. Why is he left of! the ticket t I Concerts.?Mr. Hem|>ater and the Messrs Kainers give two more delightful concerts in this city. I One to-night at the Society Library. Lookout for Him.?An insane man. indicted for a rape, broke out of the jail of Westmoreland county in this State, last week Mr. Wkbstf.r has reached Boston on his way to Washington. One more chowder at Marshfield. In a Ijow State.?The Ohio river, and the Ohio coons. Klkcted.?Mr Small for die third ruling ol York, Canada To hk Broken up.?Th? military establishment at Carlisle, Pennsylvania Kirhy is at Cincinnati playing Richard. 4P City Intelligence. Mosaor. Edwaudi' Phkparatioxi to Haxo Himui.f.? Yesterday morning as Col. Jones, the keeper of the City Prison, was surveying the cells of various prisoners, he was induced to examine that occupied by Col. Kdwards. On taking down the bed which has been turned up end- | ways towards the wall, the strap tbut held it was found | to have been cut and spliced together with a slip noose at | the end, and a hangman's knot prepared for use at short | notice. Krotn the appearance of the strap, with other 1 preparations in his cell, there is no doubt he intended to ; commit suicide after receiving his sentence this day. He 1 declares that he will never enter the walls of Sing Sing State Prison alive, and that if there are r.o other means of destruction of life, he will beat his brains out against the walls of his gloomy prison. Poor fellow ! His cash is gone, and with it fled his friend'?he is therefore now on the verge of desperation, and if the means come to his |k>s. session, no doubt he will save the State soma service, by blowing his brains out. On the discovery of this premeditated attempt to take his life, every thing was removed from his cell that could possibly be used for that purpose, and his clothing searched to ascertain if he had any |>ois. onous substance, about him. He will be sentenced this oh iuo i. vunui v/)cr luui i rrmilHT. Coxtkstkd Nomimai io?t.?The democratic delegate! ol the Sixth Congressional District, composing the 1 ltti> 14th, 15th, ltRh and 17th wards, meet to-night to select a candidate to he sup|>orted by the I'ossums, at the ensuing election. The delegation now stand :?Fernando Wood, 14?Eli Moore, 11?James J. Keosevelt, 4. Incase an election is not made to-night, the whole aft air is to be referred back to the I'ossums themselves of the several wards composing the district, who are to vote directly for the man of their choice, at a day ballot, and the one securing a majority of votes in the whole district is to be declared the regularly nominated candidate of the party. The whigs have already nominated Hamilton Fish as their candidate Tar. Fuist.aal of George Chatillon,'Past Grand Treasury erof the Order of Odd Fellows, was attended yesterday by upwards of Ave thousand Odd Fellows and several com. panics ol military. The line extended over one mile in length, and contained a larger body of Odd Fellows than has ever before been seen in this city at a funeral. Their regalia attracted much attention and their numbers excited astonishment among the thousands who linod Broadway and Canal st, as she procession passed. Several excellent hands of music were dispersed through the line, the solemn notes of which rendered the whole scene imposing and interesting. Cohowkb's Ovricc.?The Coroner was called yesterday to hold an inquest on the body of a ribs named William Bentley, a native of New Jersey, aged about 41 years, who had died the night previous at 94 Tesey street, where he had taken lodgings The jury returned a verdict of death from etfusion of the chest, caused by recent intemperate habits. It was first supposed *o have been a case of suicide, but on a careful post mortem examination the above was declared to be the immediate cause of his death. Found Drowned.?The t>ody ot a man dressed in sailor's clothes, was found at pier No. 1, North River yesterday.? It is supposed to be that of the sailor who was drowned from the ship Cornelia, Capt. French, last week, while she was weighing anchor to sail tor Havre. He was interred by the Coroner. Never turn iocs back on a Stranger Yesterday morning,as Mr. James Syme, of 401} Broadway, was engaged in his lace store, two men came in and desired to look at some goods which were shewn them and his attention particularly called to the end ot the counter by one of the two to price something that they wished to purchase. Tliey left without making a bargain, with the usual words, " will call again," and he soon discovered that one of the gentlemen had been examining the contents of his money drawer, and removed $55 of the de)K>sites, while the othe - was engaging his attention at the other part of the store. Officer Joseph, who is highly

creditable to his constituents of the 4th ward, succeeded in arresting one of the rogues yesterday, who calls himself James Clark, loafer, of Albany. He was locked up for examination. The Mystery Solved ?The Herald of Friday morning contained the following paragraph :? " Watch Returns.? In one of the watch returns at the Lower Police yesterday, we observed the following entry ' George Parker for trying to seduce wife of Wm. White.' What does it mean Yesterday while passing through the office, our optics were centered upon a neat pretty weman with a breast that would serve as a model for a Venus, who was entering a charge against this rascal Oeorge Parker, to the fbl luwiug ciicui :? i nm on i uesuoy, in - istn inst., lie came into her room while she wai in hod and handled her peraon in an indecent manner, and attempted to get into the bed with her, and was only prevented l>y dc]>onent's making a great noise, Stc. Ate. Mr. George Parker alias 1'arkerton, was committed on the charge of assault and battery with intent to commit a rape ujion the person of Mrs. Mary E. White. Case of Smith Reed.?In reporting the arrest of this alleged receive-of stolen goods yesterday, it was stated that a portion of them were found in possession of Edward Kox, tailor, of Broadway, who had purchased them of Reed. We hava since learned that Mr. Kox, as is customary every day with merchant tailors, purchased n piece of satin of Reed, he representing himself as a pedlar, and paid a reasonable price for it, but as soon as tie discovered that it was stolen goods he immediately ordered it to be lent to the Police Other. No one who knows Mr. Kox would suspect him for an instant of giving the lesst countenance to the numerous gangs of receivers who infest our city. Dishonest Stkwar.u?Officer Joseph, of the Fourth Ward, arrestod a black fellow yesterday named Isaac Bradley, on the charge of stealing a German silver speaking trumpet and a service of silver plate, belonging to Captain A nthony of the ship Argo, of the Havre line of packets. The trumpet, which was a present to Captain Anthony from Oscar Coles, was recovered by the officer, but the plate has not yet been found. Bradley was committed. Superior Court.

It was brought by plaintiffs against defendant for having recommended W. L. & 8. Mitchell,by which they obtained $1360 worth of property. A clerk of Mr. Morcwood testified that Mr. Mitchell, on behalf of his house, was desirous of obtaining credit for $1600 worth of hemp, the tirm of W. L. AS. Mitchell at the same time owing about $800. Messrs. More wood required a reference, and Messrs. Woodhull St Minturn and 8aml. L. Mitchell, the defendant, were given as such. The witness was sent to inquire of them. He first saw Mr. Minturn, and told him his errand, who replied that he believed the house was good, but he could not give particulars in relation to it? he would carry witness round to a man who knew all about them. He accompanied witness to the store of defendant, corner of Tine and Water streets. Defendant was angry at ray going round to inquire as to what he called so good a house. He said the firm of W.

Destruction of the North American, Commercial and Royal Exchange Hotels.?(in 1 uesdav night last, a lew minutes before 12 o'clock, a fire broke out in the ext~usive stables attached to the North American Hotel in this town, which proved most calamitous in its consequences, levelling with the ground three of the hest buildings of which our town could boast, aud consuming a large amount of valuable and movsable pro|>erty.

The museum will as usual this week be crowded with the beauty and fashion of the city.

When the force and strength of the Tannin is woru out, leather becomes dead, hard, dry, brittle, cracked, covered with a crust, he. This all know. To restore then, life, softness, moistneas, strength, smoothness, and remove all crust, fly, or blister?restore the tannin. This substance the leather never can receive the second time ; but the whole virtues of it are in this article, the Oil of Tannin?which penetrates the stilfest and hardest leather, if it has been twenty years in use ; and il it tears easily with the lingers, it imparts at once a strength that ia utterly incredible until seen. It becomes like new leather, 111 all respects, with a delightful softness and jiolisb. and nmkes all leather completely and perfectly imjiervious to water?particularly boots, shoes, carriage tops, harness, hose, trunks, and in fact all things made of leather, giv ing a splendid polish, even higher than naw leather has, and at least doubling its wear and durability, in whatever mariner the leather is used. These are lacts To convince ol their truth, any man trying the article and not finding it so, shall have hit money again. Remember that this is serious and true. Now, if these things are true, the discovery is of infinite value to the world. If,itisnot true, it is*the easiest thing in the world to prove it, without cost. Who then will re. fuse a tjial I Those who will may wear old shoes, groan with corns, ride with old carriage-tons?have old harness, and throw them away half used?look filthy themselves, and all about them?expend doable what is necessary for articles of leather, to their hearts' content, for what we care, if their prejudices are so strong, they will not try a newdiscovery. We have no favors to ask of them, they are the greatest sutterers, and we beg for nobody's custom or patronage. Now, gentlemen, please yourselves.

Is^* raelites, as they certainly are, if we can believe the pages of history. What little'we hear of them serves but to sharpen our anxiety lor more information concerning their wild romantic way of lite. Of their personal habits, those who have witnessed their actions, say they are particularly scrupulous to a fault in taking care of their long tresses w hich hang loosely down their neck;indeed so particular are they with their little ones,that it amounts almost to superstition. We presume, if the truth was known, Phalon first got his idea ol the Dahlia Cream (which he invented for the hair,) from them, for it gives a wonderful impetus to the growth of this ornament ol "the human face divine"?a good head of luxuriant hair. We have seen several testimonials of its efficacy, but having tried it ourselves, pronounce it decidedly the only article fit for daily use ot the hair.

N.B The public are requested to look at a sample now exhibiting at the Fair. 00- COUGHS, OOLDS, AND CONSUMPTION?It should be remembered that a cough is always evidence that some impurity has lodged in the lungs, which, if not speedily removed, will so irritate those delicate organs as sooner or later to bring on an inflammation of the lungs? a form of disease whicli we all know is the high road to consumption. Wright's Indian Vegetable Pills are a most delightfu medicine for carrying otfa cold, because they expel troml thesvstemall morbid and corruut humors, the cause of every kind of disease, in so easy and natural a manner, that the body is relieved of all its sufferings as if by magic. Four ortive of the said Indian Vegetable Pills, taken every night on going to bed, will, in a short time, remove the most obstinate cold?at the same time the digestive organs will be restored to a healthv tone, and the blood so completely purified, that inflammation of the lungs, consumption, or any other form of disease, will be absolutely impossible.

QQ- READ THE FOLLOWING CERTIFICATE from a elergy man at Newark:?Newark, September 28, 1342. My dear Isir?I have been often afflicted with great exhaustion after exhorting and fulfilling my duties and professional avocations, and never found any relief therefrom uutil I met with your excellent Horehound Candy. I have used it on innumerable occasions, and believe it to be the best medicinal compound extant for healing and preserving the lungs from consumption in its early stages. Clergymen are more apt, from the nature of their profession, to be afflicted with hoarseness, which finally turns to Bronchitis ; and I certainly believe that a free use of your Candy will keen away that complaint altogether. I recommend all my brethren to keep a few packages of your candy by them and use it after speaking, and they will at once perceive its benefit. Your friend truly, A. D.

Biddle, is advertised by the sherilt oi that county tor sale, on the 4th November. There is a hundred acres et splendid vinej ards, attached. There is quite a demand for Treasury notes in Wall street, as may lie seen in an advertisement in another column. The packet ship Virginian, from Liverpool,brings nearly $100,000 in specie. The Saratoga and Troy Rail Road sold at auction on Monday last for two hundred and eight thousand dollar*.

Thia is to be paid lor by the larmers ol the west in flour at $1,(SO per hbl. Beautiful arrangement under the new tariff*. We have received the following, which we inaeit for the purpose of comment:? ? There are two paragraphs in the beginning of your "money market" report of this morning, which seem to show your usual penetration was not awake. The one alluding I to the "improvement" in Alabama Funds, and the next paragraph stating that the advices by the coming steamer of the 4th inst. would probably bring better accounts as to American securities in the European markets. Von are aware that the notes of the Alabama State Banks have I been under a depreciation of 40a4t), and that within a month even the depreciation has been 30a37, it is now quoted Id only. So great a change in their value, in so short a time, was a puzzle, but jou afford a Solution to the enigma, by stating that the president of the bank had hern here. The dneet nib retire is that the banks Inn been buying uptheir own notes at a heavy discount, pur. posely created by their manreuvres in order so to ^ullage the unfortunate holders of them through every section of the Union. I say this is the direct inference, involving a refinement in plunder which far surpasses the adroit. I ness of ( ol. Monroe Edward*, the Hid.lies and the other H Diddlers which each bank explosion throws up. Now , these things, we may be assured, are regulaily I registered, analyzed, and served up with piquant illimtrations, for the European capitalists and leading money houses, by each steamer that departs.
