Price two centa per j copy The Ureal Tyler Presidential Movement? Satan In the Broadway Tabernacle. This is the age of wonders. Signs appear in the heavens above?in the earth below?and in the waters underthe earth. The cotnet, with a tail ol ninety millions of miles long, has just gone round the sun, Hnd is now careering towards eternity?the earthquake has shaken the whole West Indies, engulphed islands, and destroyed thousands ef mortals. But more than these, the Devil and Col. Webb have been both let loose in the Broadway Tabernacle?the great Tyler meeting has taken place in New York?five thousand persons have assembled ?a tremendous uproar has been made in Broadway, and the re-election of John Tyler as next President, is almost ascertain as the calculation of eclipses? the period ol the comet, or the coming of the millennium. A full report and description of this mighty meeting will be found in this day's paper. This grand demonstration has been made at a most favorable time. A more beautiful night than last evening was we have never yet seen. The broad, beautiful, boundless, full moon shone down with unclouded majesty, and tipped every spire in New York with silver. The magnificent fountain in the Park rose up intoacolumn of bright silver, eighty feet high. Broadway, all around the Tabernacle, was crowded with people and loafers, and fun of all kinds seemed to be the order of the evening. It is very evident to the office holders that Captain John Tyler has now made agreat big hole in the democratic party, and if the Tyler men go ahead on their own hook as they have begun, ne one can tell what is to become of the locotocos. Will the Tyler men now organize for the charter elections/??will they run a separate ticket for Mayor and Aldermen 1?or will they take hold oi all the democratic meetings in the wards, and turn the great tide in f avor of Cap* tain Tyler for the next presidency 1 All this must be done, or this meeting amounts to nothing. Let the Captain and his men then go ahead. Seriously, however, this great meeting is a great failure?a great row?a great humbug?and the last Tyler meeting that will be ever held in New York. The devil leaves town to-day. The Financial Revolution?Wages?Printers' Rates.?We have received several articles relative to the reduction in Printers' rates of wages, which have been attempted by some employers in the printing line. We have given this matter some reflection, and we have come to the conclusion, that new and reduced rates of wages for printers will become a bone of contention very soon, if both parties do not anticipate future necessities, and arrange the question amicably now. This is the great age of reduction?in prices?in rents?in real estate?in provisions?in amusempntu 1 n nprouanripo Tt muat not onujotpil tlin 1 any class of mechanics can escape this general law of social life. It would be better, therefore, for the whole body ef printers, who now possess good situations, to hold a meeting and adjust the rates ol labor to the new state of things brought about by the late revulsions. Prices of living are as low now as in 1826 to 1830?but the wages of printers are still at the rates of 1S36, when every element of living was thirty to fifty per cent higher than it was in 1830, or than it is now in 1843. Let journeymen printers and all others think of these facts. If an agitation should be made?and a contest take place about it, many of those who hold good places?will, in the turmoil, lose them, and many unworthy persons get them, besides much loss of time, and a great expenditure of feeling and passion. American Travellers in England?Hotels in London.?We call the especial attention of Americans who are about to visit Europe, to the advertisement in another column, of a very celebrated Hotel-keeper in London, William J. Markwell, who is the proprietor of several admirable Hotels, fashionable, family, and commercial The first on his list is the hotel called " Long's," in New Bond street, a very celebrated hotel, situated in the fashionable quarter of London, and in the vicinity of the Parks, Theatres, Palace, and West End. This hotel is also the centre of American fashionable travellers in Europe. The second is called the " London Family Hetel," in Albemarle street, also an admirable house lor American families visiting London for a short time. The third is the well-known " Norlh and South American Coffee House," situated in the city, near the Bank of England and the Exchange?a place of great resort fur all seeking information on American affairs?and a centre for all the financial, commercial, and political news of London. Every Ameri| can of business visits this hotel, and all the Ame I ricin bankers in London frequent it to get the news. At all these hotels files of American papers can be seen on the arrival of every packet or steam ship; and particularly special files of th? NcwYork Htraki, to the latest dates. We particularly recommend American travellers in London to visit them. Thk Somkrs Case in the U. S. Court.?The argument in this case was continued yesterday by Mr. Griffin, a condensed report of which will be found in another column. To day it is probable that Mr. O'Connor will conclude, and it is expected that he will lay himself out at full length in reply to Mr. Duer. On Friday we may expect the opinion of Judge Belts. What will it be 1 Great difference of opinion on this point. Movements in Philadelphia.?A very decided sweep has just taken place in Philadelphia. The other day about fifty Custom House officers, whigs and locofocos, were removed at " one felj swoop," and fifty Tyler men were appointed. The " Capting" is going it now. A general Hweep may tie expected in trie ivew torn custom House in a few days. Navai.?Painfil Report?Captain Briggs, of the Barclay, at Philadelphia, states that while at the Cape of Good Hope he heard a report of the loss of the U. S. sloop of war Concord, on the coast of Mozambque. We do not think there is a word of truth in this repor^. The Concord is under the command of Captain William Boerum, is one of the Brazil squadron. Does the cruising ground of this squadron extend throughout the Indian Ocean I Certainly not. II any sloop of war has been lost, it must hare been the Boston, one of the Kast India squadron, reported at the last accounts as having sailed tor home. We can scnrcely believe, however, that any man-of-war has been shipwrecked. It is stated that another Naval Court Martial is ordered Ih convene at Norfolk, Fa., immediately, tor the trial ot Commander William Ramsay, and others. Com Ramsay has been relieved from the , command of the Vandalia until the result of this ini vestigaiion is known. Obdvri.?Marc h 10.?Mid. A. R. Abercrotnhie, to the loop Levant , Lieut O.

Morr's Address. [ ?The annual Commencement of the Medical Class of the New York University took place yesterday at the University Chapel. As is usual upon such occasions, the ceremony o( "graduation" was imposing. Chancellor Frelinghuysen presided, aided by Doctors Mott, Pattinson, and other officers of the University, who had their seats upon the platform. The main body of the house was filled with the students of the University, while the galleries were overflowing with the beauty and fashion of the city, together with many strangers from abroad. After the usual preliminary exercises, Chancellor Frelinghuysen proceeded to admit the medical class to the degree of "Doctors of Medicine." The class is fifty nine in number, and a fine, substantial set of fellows they are, to all outward appearance, and we doubt not their scientific qualifications will do thsin equal credit with theirpersonalapi>earance. The most amusing part of all Commencements is the mode and manner in which the graduate receives his diploma from the hands of the Chancellor, or President, and the peculiar expression of ..u;ku. ? u? i .i,? ?i?. form with the diploma in his hand. It is for this diploma that he has, for so many years, pored over the ancient classics?vexed his soul with the mechanics, and consumed his midnight oil in all the multiplied branches of a course of education. And when at last he reaches this pole star of all his college hopes and aspirations, and actually lays his hand upon the endorsement of his scholarship, he feels queer, or 1 rather feelsglad, and looks queer. Conceal his emo- , tions he cannot; but it would be undignified to smile, 1 and equally inconsonant to look solemn, so that in \ a violent and desperate effort to obey the classic 1 maxim, In medio tutissimus ibi?, it is ten to one that he looks very funny. We have seen a host of graduates receive their diplomas, and never yet failed to notice this circumstance. After the class had received their diplomas, and the mellow air from the band of " Home, sweet home," had reminded them of other days and other scenes, Dr. Mott took the desk and proceeded to deliver the customary address to the graduating class. It was replete with sound sense, and practical instruction, and peculiarly adapted to the new sphere of life into which these young " Medicinal Doctores" are emerging. The following is a brief abstract of the important topics touched upon by the learned Professor The address commenced with the usual congratulations to the class, upon arriving at'this commencement of their public professional career. Numerous practical remarks and cautions were given to guide them They were reminded of the high trusts and ! responsioniues now annul 10 nevoive upon mem in the exercise of the medical art. And here Professor Mott called their attention especially to the importance of bedside instruction, and reminded them that med cal cliniques had their origin in this University, and are now spreading throughout the country. He 1 also reminded them of the long course of study yet | before them, and of the shortness of life to attain to ' perfection. Too much confidence in their ability to j discharge their high duties was to be carefully avoid- < ed, and a becoming modesty to be cultivated. They were advised to adopt the practice of noting down their clinical observations, and making clear comments and observations upon every case that comes up. In the first years of their practice they would have abundance of time to devote to the continuance of their studies in medical science, and they were exhorted to improve it. Even the most learned in the profession had made comparatively but i feeble attainments. All new theories, howeverwild. and revolutionizing, were to be carefully examined 1 before rejection, as it is impossible they can ever ! overthrow the great landmarks of nature. Still no 1 new theories were to be received without investigation. In the next place, Dr. Mott called attention to the t ethics of the profession. Thev were recommended t to adhere strictly to the old adage, " Honesty is the i best policy." Adhere strictly to truth. Adopt a frank and manly candor on all occasions, especially I towards brethren of the profession. Avoid all intrigues, secret societies, cliques, and coteries.? These are the men, who, although they may keep withrn the letter of their diplomas, yet they fight under false and piratical colors. They are malign spirits?watchful rivals?and must be carefully avoided. In the next place,the professor adverted to the subject of religion, and the great and momentous obligations which it especially imposed upon them.? Seek the guidance of Providence, and then his pro tection would be sure. The appeal to them upon the duties of religion, and its value in every trying hour, was very happy and effective. And especially necessary was it for them to be able to administer its consolations and its hones at the bedside of the dying, the poor, the degraded, and the wretched. Mo matter what the church or denomination to which they may go, there is still one church and one chapel where all worship, and that is in one's own bosom. Medicine may heal or alleviate the pains and diseases ol the body, but it requires the virtues of religion to heal the wounded spirit.? Then Dr. Mott gave them his valedictory, and closed his addre-s. The band struck up Yankee Doodle, and the audience departed, highly gratified. Sudden Death of the Squaw at the Museum.? Much excitement was produced at American Museum, yesterday afternoon,in consequence of the death of one of the most beautiful and interesting squaws in the establishment. Every attention wasrendered , imaginable by several of the'neighboring ladies, as ' also by her medical attendants, Dr. Vanzant and Dr. \ Rabineau, of the 1st ward, who excited themselves to the utmost to save her. It is supposed that she J took cold on her return from a ball which she atten- i ded recently, and from which proceeded congestion 1 of the brain. ? Eater from St. Domingo ?The schooner Hurd, arrived yesterday from Aux Cayes. We learn by her that on the 1st, when the schooner, was about five miles from Jeremie, she was boarded by a boat from the shore, the persons in which reported that the troops which had been sent lr?m Port au Prince to put down the insurrection, had mostly gone over to the insurgents?that a battle had been fought on the preceding day, but with what result was not known. Those black philosophers are determined upon having a constitution like ours. {fcT-THE COMET ! THE COMET !- TO-MORROW MORNING will he liublished in Extra New World, the celebrated work of Si.

LAST FALL I WAS ATTACKED WITH A pain and severe aoreness of the chest, which continued far many w?eks. I had previously beew for several vears subject to permanent weakliest of the chest, caused ny a strain. This last attack gave me much uneasiness, us I found it was the commencement of a fatal disease. About the. middle ol Dcoctnber I bi gan to take Dr. Wistti's Balsam of Wild Cherry, a single bottle of w hich soon removed all soreness from the chest, added strength and vigor to the lungs, and I now regard myself as perfectly sound and well.

WILLjAMS, Counsellor at Law, 58 William at. Price $1 per bottle. Sold only at 135 Fulton street, corner ol Nassau, by ISAAC BUTTS, M.D. mmmmmmmsmmmfsmmmsmmmamaeUnited States Circuit Court. Before Judge Butts. WrumiDir, March 1 A, 184). The Somtrt' Tritftdtj ?At the opening ef the Court thl* morning, Mr. Uairrin returned bit argument. He a aid that in the obtervationi he had the honor to aubmit to the Court yesterday, he had endeavored to show, and ha truited with perfect lucceit, that by the law of 1800, Courts Martial had perfect power to punish all crimes. He thought that the argument of the counsel that the constitution of New York annulled the United States Constitution in this particular was fallacious, for it provided that crimes committed iu the militia, if the Congress should allow the State to keep a land and naval force in tusiesof paacn should be tiied by Conrt Martial, and a dispensation of trial by jury made. Mr. U. then speke of the opinion of William Rawl, who, in his opinion, was as intimately acquainted with the intentions of i the constitution as Alexander Hamilton, as he whs pre- , sent at the debates upon its adoption, on.I whs intimately acquainted with the eminent jurists of the day,and fra- i mers of the constitution. This opinion was that the constitution provided that a class ot crimes which were 1 without the jurisdiction ot civil Courts, should be given I to Courts Martial; that Congress hod reasonably provided that martial employ ments created martial law, and required a martial Court. And the courts of impeachment, said Mr. G before which the highest judges, and pveu the Chief Magistrate, are liable to be impeached, have the power to disqualify, although not to take life, which to an honorable mind is far greater than the loss of natural life. He then alluded to the manner used to get rid of sovereigns in former times; the death of Charles II, and the abdication of Louis 16, and compared with It the Court of impeachment, by which, he said, the Chief Magistrate that had been delinquent could be reduced, by the calm and majestic law, to a mere cypher, ami he knew ef nothing which would present a more sublime

and imposing spectacle,if such a case should ever occur, than a court ot impeachment. Mr. O. contended that the power given by Congrec a to Courts Martial, was a necessary and constitutional one. The second question Mr. G. said, was,whether his Honor or any Circuit Court had cognir.ance over murder committed on hoard a naval ship He contended that the courts had no common law jurisdiction; that they had no more power than the statute gave them, and that the statutes had not given the requisite power. Mr. O. said that the second section of the acts of 18J9. gave jurisdiction to the United Ststea Courts,except where the constitution otherwise directed, and he contended that such direction had been given; that the branch of crimes committed in the army and navy had hern placed within the jurisdiction of Courts Martial. Mr. G. then cited the acts of 1790 and 1800. in support of his argument. He also quoted the opinions of Chief Justice Marshall, Judges Washington and ftargeaut. who, lie said, had decided that civil courts had no jurisdiction over naval and military offences. He said the fourteenth section|of the act of 1790, provided that all offences must be tried in the distriet in which they were committed,and that consequently it implied merely those offences that were committed on snore; that the act of 1800, on the same subject, was nearly the same as that of ^O, and that, as during that lapse of years, the various opinions he had quoted had been expressed, they must have been taken into consideration, and if the construction had been at variance with the provisions of the act, some alterations would of course have been made. Mr. G then commented upon th r other acts in relation ta the subject iu an able and fnrci vie manner. He spoke with enthusiasm of the deeds achieved by the American navy in its early days, and thought that if the construction of the op esing counsel was adopted, it would he the destruction of the navy, as it would destroy all discipline He hoped he had succeeded in proving that the constitution had by no act given jurisdiction to the U. States Courts, but hail given exclusive jurisdiction to the Courts Marti.,1 in cases like the present. He touched upon the statute which provides thut no man shall be tried by twe Courts at the same time. With relation to Lieut. Gansevoort he took the same grounds as Mr. Duer, and at half past one o'clock concluded his argument. After Mr. Griffin resumed his scat, Mr. Dukr rose and said that he would beg to suggest a somewhat different course from that usually adopted, and that instead of interrupting Mr. O'Connor in the course of his flrsrument in nnturtn enrmel vnisannrnhun. lions 01 mistakes into which he might unintentionally iall. he (Mr D) would refrain from any explanation until Mr. O'Connor, had concluded. Mr. O'Connor?I have certainly no particular desire to be interrupted hy the learned counsel, but I am unwilling to give him any advantage which the law does not allow him ; if I do, he will probably take that, and a little more. With all due respect, then. I would rather the law would take i>s course. Mr. Dukr?You havo your election, then, and cannot complain of the interruption. Mr. O'Connor?Oh, I don't suppose I shall, if you makethem. The Court?It will be best for the counsel to refrain rom any interruption until the closo of his opponent's irgument, and then he can otter them, ot course allowing to the other party the right of final reply. Mr. O'Connor?Yes, or he could submit their explanations in writing Mr. Griffin?We have labored far a number of hours o explain our positions, and if we have not rendered ourlelves perfectly intelligible in that period, there is little lope that we can do it by writing. Mr. O'Connor then proceeded to address the court as follows :?If your honor please, this matter we understand to have been brought before your honor by the Oran.l Jury, as a naked, simple question of low, arising upon one of the most narrow and technical points that Ban be presented to the judgment of a court of law. to wit, the que'tion of jurisdiction. Upon that question, certainly with very great propriety, being a question irviiuiv.Pi iu lim n, i,ui uiui?i illipuilttUl 111 IIB CUUM'4 UfUc<'?, your honor expressed a desire to hear the counsel who had been engaged for the respective parties. alluding,as 1 the counsel encaged lor the individual Accusers, who. exercisini, their right as citizens of the U. S., impeached Com. McKenzie and Lt. Gansovoort heforethe Grand Jury, for the crimes of murder and manslaughter; and upon the other side, three counsel who were engaged to defend these individuals against that accusation, wherever made. It is undoubtedly true that your Honor must have intended to confine the discession to this pure question of law. But your Honor designed also that the enquiry should he ample, broad, and perfect?such as would give to all parties interest, ed a fair opportunity, sot only of laying tneir own views before the court, but also of presenting their replication, or answer, to any views that might be urged by the ad verse party. 1 apprehend that it was your Honor's intention that neither the Grand Jury, nor the public, should hear, 011 this occasion, any expression of person al feeling, or any observations at large on the particular circumstancesof the case which has originated this enquiry, but that the court should strictly confine them selves to the law of the question under discussion. In that spirit, and coming into court, as the adverse counsel are obliged to admit, with clean hands?unimpeachable, certaiDly, with having made any improper effort ta per vert or to abuse the instruments of public Justice?my associate and myself appeared before your Honor; and with the design of exhibiting the whole stress and strength and amplitude of the argument, in all its details, before yon, in the opening, thus to afford to the other side all the advantage of reply that could possibly be necessary in the attainment 01 justice, my learned friend inverted the ordinary course of argument, preceded me, cited all the cases, and all the sections ofthe statutes and of the constitutian, which we then snpoosed to be necessary, in order not only to give your Honor our views freely, perfectly, and entire!>, but nlso to cnahlu the other side to understand nnd to answer them. Certainly themannerof doing this was ns unobjectionable its the a,<irit in which it was done. Surely my learnel friend, in the opening of this case, gave no cause? any right wha'evor?to complain that he evinced improper nspc rite, undue feeling,or a disposition to demand any thing tint a fair application of the doctrines of the constitution, and the principles of the law, fo this case, without exciting pauion, or prejudice, or feeling of any description. How far that?I take leave to s.iy?highly meritorious and praiseworthy conduct on the part of my learned associate has been responded to by the counsel on the other side, 1 leave such of the auditors who were present, and heard them both, and to your Honor,to judge. 1 cannot enter at large on the compatison. The arguments arc before your Honor, and I only take leave to say. thit whilst the first was a model of strict adherence to the very questian before the court?nf most studious and considerate forbearance from any thing which could possibly wound the focliDgs of advocate, friend, or party, the other was, in all these respects, precisely thp opposite. For not only upon the first day, when perhaps nndsr the influence of feeling which cannot always he controlled, did the counsel who appeared on the part of the individuals here complained of, indulge in observations of a description, to say the least of them, quite offensive to the psrtv against whom they were directed. But after a night's r< pose? after n night's reflection?after the enjoyment of that opportunity of repentance which the still hours of the night so often bring to well regulated and ingenuous min is, after a transgression, and which effectually prevents its repetition?nay, often leads to the adoption of a course of conduct that may serve as atonement for the regretted wrong, the learned counsel came into court nest morning, and presented n painful exhibition of still more cool and deliberate ofTensivtiiess than that which marked the conduct of the previous day. I would ask your Honor, how far It Is possible that you could have been enlightened with respect to the subject ol this investigation, by the utterance of any eulogium upon the character and conduct ol the individual whose acts have led to the institution of the prnsent enquiry 1 I ask what light could he thrown on the questions submitted by the grand jury, by any remarks on the " persecutions," which, it was asserted, have been instituted against this gentleman, and which sprung from private malice and the desire of private vengeancel Where was the evidence that any such feelings ?any such desire existed ? Where were the proofs of any private malice ? Where was the evidence ol this high amiability of character?this piety -those endearing traits ot character, which were intrude red for'he purpose of influencing the decision of you Honor, on this question of jurisdiction ? Need I say, that these are all questions to he hsre'ifter examined and determined. I must hers take occte ion to asl; the learned counsel, whilst he pleaded In Justification, or at bast ns a sort of excuse forthe zeal and vehemence?w hich, ho admitted in advance, would necessarily characterise the course of his argu ment? the feelings ol sympathy with which his bosom was moved, on behalf of his Iriend, and the wife of that friend ; did it become him lo forget that the relatives of those who are now no m u e,are human beings like him self; that they nisi arc citizens of the United States?that their hearts thiob with afT.ictions equally as strong as those which agitate his own ?that they have a right, surely as good aright as he, to sppear in a court of Jus. ticn, and to drfpnd a connexion or a kinsman ? Did the learned counsel really forget that the persons whom he m violently accused ?f being actuated by the worst passion i of the human heart, bud an undoubted ,right to de. m ai l an i quiry intothe circumstances by which their relatives had been suddenly deprived of their lives, st a distance on the neon, beyond the reach of any of the constituted tritmnslsof the land, and that without color or pretence of la w, hut upon color or pretence of some justification, some apology, hereafter to be proved, and not ye? (aiabllshed T Hiirely, snrely, Ifthe nounsel have a right to be excused from the heat and excitement he h>s manifested, and the arrogsnce asul madness with which,ill the course of this argument.he h < seen fit tons all my learned associate. In oonseqnenc ?.f the feelings which ha conceives, and indeed I admit, he has a right to cherish in hehnlf of his friend and relative : has not the lather ef one who has been deprived of his life,without color of law?has not he, supposing him to he the accuser, as has been intimated, a right to call fon the tribu naliof the laud to enquire why and whereore hi* son. was slain 1 Has hr not aright to ask why he has been obliged to listen to the mourning and lamentation of the mother of that son 1 Has he not a right to appear calmly and decently at the portals of justice whilst affliction like this presses on his heart? y es.most assuredly. The laws of blood and consanguinity call upon him?and their voice is sanctioned by justice herself?to appear before her tribunals, and say, ' I demand shearing anda trial, if the law ofthe land will give it me, without being charged with being influencid by base and unworthy motives." Has not, I ask you, the young widow ofthe sailor Cromwell, she wbe sent him fresh almost from the bridal bed, into the service of his country?has not she a right, when on the return of that vessel?unharmed, without having encountered an enemy public or private, without meeting danger either from the storm ofthe ocean, or the hands ot man?she finds that her young sailor has been sacrificed at the yard arm, without one par icle of evidence of guilt that she can discover, or by w hich any reasouabh man could be influenced?has she not a right to demand of|8 Court of Justice that enquiry he made into the matter,und the reason told her, why she hat been thus bereaved? And shall the counsel who pleads the affections of hit own heait as a justification of his warmth, at his advanced age, and with his cultivated mind and disciplined temper; shall he who thus (ileads for theiua titication or excuse of his departure from the strict line of propriety, be permitted to turn upon the aggrieved father and mother and the lamenting widow ? young and not poaaeaaed of all those powers of selfcontrol that he possess and should have exercised ?and charge them with having violated the same priciples of propriety which he has disregarded ; with having been influenced by base and unworthy motives, because they hava calmly andquietly, violating no law, creating no disturbance, exciting no feelings save such as their situation may possibly excite in the bosoms of all feeling men?that young widow appears at the portals of that tribunal over which your Honor so ably presides, and asks you whether the highest criminal tribunal of the United States have the power te investigate this matter, and ascertain whether she has rightfully suffered this grievous bereavement. 1 insist, Sir, that the whole course of the argument has beeu characterised by this species of invective and want of due consideration for the feelings and the rights of others?but a consideration only lor the feelings and rights of the rest of the community. 1 lament indeed that it falls to my lot to say aught in reply to this course, of which I do think my associate has the greatest cause #f complaint To he obliged to sit here during the whole day ana hear from one revered in age.?a very father of the law?the most hitter insinua'ions cf his ignorance of the case?of putting forth doctrines that a mere tyro would be ashamed of avowing,?of spending three whale hour s in order to maintain such errors,?and similar expressions of incivility. Well, it is euongh, perhaps, to remind the counsel that they found it necessary to occupy seven hours in answering these arguments, which were considered so idle and absurd. This feeling, which has characterized the argument, characterized the law which has been urged in the course of it; and 1 shall have occasion hereafter to call the attention of your Honor to the fact, that this question has been viewed upon one side only by our opponents; and that whilst they talk of tho rights of individuals, Rnd of the rights of the nation, anil the glory of the American name, and the maintenance of tho hbvv, they talk within the narrow circle of their cwn affections and their own firesides?within the narrow circleof that particular portion of the American people. and that particular portion of the American navy with|which they happen to have connexions and interests. [Mr. O'Connor will proceed with the lsgal argument to d.iy, and we shall give it entire next morning.] {K7- " ODD FELCOWS"?ATTENTION This morning,'Thursday, will be published an original Nouvellettc.from tho pen of J.

Now this Mr. Vassar himself admits in the communication alluded to that he did sav, " that the friends ofthe Hudson River Railroad would piotiably (not have moved in making a survey of n route, had not one been in progress some 20 or 30 miles east, the construction of which would seriously impair the value of property of the river towns." What is this but saying, In effect, as he is alleged to have done, " That Mr. Vassar and his friends had msrely | resorted to mis movement to protect their own property along the river; that the river was enough lor them." The distinction to be drawn i? without a deference. But Mr Vassar, it must be recollected, il a witness here in hia own cause in reference to the terms of a statement which place* both himaelf and his associates in a most unfavorable light before the public?it shows Itoth his and their pretensions on the suhject of the Iload to he hypocritical,that their object is not the advancement of the nverjenterprisc, but if possible by raising an excitement about it, to throw discouragement upon any plan for effecting a communication by railroad between this city, Albany and Troy ; there is something so hollow, corrupt and dishonest about this, that he must feel most eager, not only to rid himself of atich an imputation, but to escape the keen and bitter reproaches ot his friends for the (tain thus fastened upon their motives by his voluntary confessions. If the plea of guilty in part is wrung from him under these overwhelming influences to qualify and deny, may it not rairly he presumed that he is in fact answerable for the whole statement which hero passionately repudiates as a misrr | resent at it n from beginning to end." Fortunately, however, for thecause of truth, Mr. Vussar hns not been sparing in revelai ions of the motives by which he says himseTt and liienus are actuated. 1 have not h. en his only confidant; the question o( his voracity is not left therefore to be decided by his temptations to laltify. Ho has made similar statements to individuals of this city, making it completely evident that he has stated what be so pertius. ciously contends he has not done. Mr. Vassal's remarks about not noticing what he is pleased to call " misrepresentations," being made by "plain Mr. Leonard, instead ot Alderman Leonard," are indicative of the man's calihro, and lead to the concluncn that he might even be made to doubt his own word as plain Mr. Vassar without the imposing adjunct of "Chairman of the Hudson River Railroad ex-committee." That there may not remain a doubt on any mind as to the motives of Mr. Vassar and his associates in pressing their River Rail road project. I have subjoined a note from Mr. J. Radio, Jr,o( this eity, giving a statement of Mr. Vassar, made in the Merchants' Rxchange, and now leave the public to judge ol the "specimeus oi fairness and truth" exhibtedby Mr. Vassar in his recent attack upon me MOSES O.

At your request I would state that in the Merchants' Exchange last winter, when a conversation took place he. tween Joseph E Bloomfi>-ld, Esq of the Albany Railroad, and Mr. M. Vassar, of Poughkeepsie, the advocate of a Hudson River Railroad, the latter, in my presence, said to Mr. B. in nnswer to a direct qurstion whether the river people wanted a railroad?"No, sir, we don't want a road, but we are determined that if our road on the river is Dot built, the one in the interior shall Dot he."

S^team Ship Great Western-?This favorite steam packet, commanded by the popular Hoskens, goes to sea at three o'clock this afternoon, with several less than thirty passengers. This is rather singular, and is only ta be accounted for in one way It la a fact, that in America nothing can succeed without the aid of the press. Let never so excellent a packet commence the pas. senger business, she will inevitably fail in filling her state rooms, unless her movements are regularly noticed in the papers. We, therefore, believe that the Western would leave to-day with more passengers than she will carry, had her owners evinced more tact and and liberality in giving publicity to the day ol departure of this really popular packet. We trust that in future, they will not confine their notices to the papers of small circulation, but send to those establishments that can give notoriiti to their ships. Advertise liberally, and passengers and freight will come in liberally.

It is probable that Sir Charles will not live long if he is now alive. At the last account he was much worse than he had been. The riots on the Lachine canal have been neariy suppressed. Mexico and Texas.?Mexico is in no particular condition, nor is Texas. Yucatan atill holds out against Sunta Anna, and will undoubtedly come off best. This republic, which was once called the New England of Mexico, is destined to outstrip Texus and Mexico both. It appears to be the only republic south of this that possess the elements of success. Santa Anna remained at his country seat I "biding histime"and the new central constitution "that is to be." Fashionable Movements.?Ex-President Van Buren of Lindenwald, (Kinderhook) is on a visit at Albany, preparing the machinery for the next election. Prince John is with him. Henry Clay has reached Ashland, from his recent visit to New Orleans. He is in fine spirits, and buoyant with hope. General Cass has arrived at Detroit, his future home, and has been received with great tclat. John C. Calhoun is at Charleston, S. C., and is also busy (preparing for the noxt Presidency. Daniel Webster has not yet left the Cabinet, but it is supposed he will do so soon, and go to England, as minister in the place of Mr. Everett, who goes to China. Who goes to France is vet uncertain. Theatrical, &c.?Theatrical businss, in the60 latitudes, is middling. The Park spring season has commenced t* only tolerable houses and a tolerable company. The Bowery is going down fast. The Chatham and the Olympic are the successful houses. Forrest is in town, preparing a drama for the Chatham, translated from the French. Concerts seem to be all the rage. We have had half a dozen recently, and more are coming. Mrs. Sutton is in town, looking out upon the luture, which seems like a long valley with gay clouds hanging over it. The two Miss Cumraings have made some little stir, by their Scottish Ballad Concerts. The one is a toprano the other a mezzo soprano, of some melody but no great power or compass. If they take the grand tour and give these Ballad Concerts, they can muke a great deal of money. Ballad music is popu. lar here. The Seguins are at Charleston. They dont go further &outh. Signor Nagel, Max Bohrer, and others are somewhere south also. On the whole the theatrical business in this country is not in good a condition, but if aTagleoni, or a Cerito. or a llubini. or a Orisi were to come out ue could Boon get up u mania that would last for a year and yield about $100,000 at Itut.

The market presents the greatest abundance of money, and a continued desire to find investment As the spring advauces there are some indication* of renewed business, but not such as creates a great extent of business paper to employ the means of the Banks. Specie continues to as cumulate here, but is preparing with the opening of spring to be distributed over the country The rates of exchange on the South are such as to revive the export of specie to that quarter. In (act, there never was s time when exchanges were so low and uniform to every peint of the continent as now. Their manage nent is becoming confined to the leading private houses.

In this state of vffairs stocks art necessarily the favorite investment, particularly those ot which mail amounts or none, only are held abroad, as the Unit ed States Government and New York stocks. Those latter, 6 percent!, have risen to 100 a 104 per cent, prem., and the Government lean to 0 per cent, while Kentucky S's, which is as sound a State, sells at 8ft.
