! . ih xlpi i. lurk, Suiiila), JUnh 1W, 1W3 The ISr\t Presidency-A Political Millennium Appronchlim. It id a rriiMrk olten made of late by high authority. that oivilit ition totting in advance ot the ancient i mimon law, itute law, and even the Ion* e.-tabii u'd customs o( society. This fact is striking \ ii i-tr..!> cl in t e new leature which has been lutelt : r< 'm, ?-J into the system of political electioneering. Hi neral Jacks<>n was brought into power under th watchword ot " Hi'kary.n Hickory poles and hickory sticks, hickory nuts and hickory orgies, were the eliiel agents in the electioneering, ll was ?h.. IuoLasw ej Q w 1 he- word seems to iicate, by vigor, firmness and promptness. with a slight touch of the irresistible. U hen 1' sident Harrison came into power, the system had become inoliitied, and greatly changed. We heard no more of cotton bags and hickory sticks; but "//'rd Cider" was the watchword and countersign. llie hickory poles were converted into log cabins, and the cotton bags were beaten into quiet coon-skins and peaceable bustles This may he called the Hard Cider dynasty; characterised by an influence decidedly opposed to cotton bag- and hickory sticks. It did not smell so much ol powder, w is farther removed trom violence and barbarism, and ol cour-e approached nearer to the p tee and polish of civilization. Who would not prct? r the quietude ot a log cabin to the roar of cannon. the < -hirtg of hickory sticks, and the uncertain defence of a fortification of cotton bags! Another and far greater change has, however, now come over the spirit of the political dream.? Tne hickory poles have fallen?the hard cider is all drank?the coi ns have gone to their holes ?and the log cabins are forgotten. There is, to be sure, still a great show of cotton bags, but their position i- not calculated to excite alarm.? The whole -vs'eiu ot electioneering is changed. Balis and parties are now the order of the day; and worn a?young, beautiful, lovely woman? is the lib and power of the system. This new mode of electioneering was begun by the Clay clubs about war ago. It was an irre.-istible movement. You trlight attack a man with a cotton bag before him, but wh t could be done with a woman, with aco'ton ? b-hind her! The advantage was instantly s-i'ii and i : ,? n Balls were got up on every occas; 1. Jt was discovered that one waltz with a beaut nil girl would convert any ordinary politician, and that a pirouette would do the business in the most stubborn ruses. The great Clav Bill comes off at Washington Hall to-morrow evening, and it is expected that a great number of converts will he made. The Clay ladies ur< to he u rivalled by any in the city, -11 c.? .i..i ana ne nans irom i*?r quivers wm crrm?: ii-mim hav- e "pi iic ranks of tin- enemy. It is but a few evenings since, that the Tyler party Rot up a ball nt old Tammany. I's effect was not doubtful. And had that party stuck to th?ir balls, and clung to the ladies, a!! might now have been well. But they left the ball room, the dance, and the waltz, went to s.i-ech m iking a' a mass meeting in a church, and now where are they 1 Damned ?as all must b who desert the ladies. Thi- 'node of electioneering is not only a great advance in civiliznM- n, hut it is the true system? there i- sound sense od philosophy in it?there is r< finenvnt in it?there is chivalry in it In short, we altogether approve of the system, and shall go forany political party that adopts it. Doings at Albany ?It is to be teared that Governor Bouek ha.- committed a fatal error by throwing himself into the hands oi certain men. The Albany Evening Journal published a day or two since a li-t of politician-) who are represented as being the Governor's confidenti d committee. Their names are Krastus Corning, Edwin Croswell, Rulus W. Peckham, .Tames D Wnsson and John Van Burrn. When Wm C Boui k ? elected Uovemor 01 t(ii =; State by the overwhelming majority of 22,000 votes, ir was not imagined that he was weak enough to he controlled by any set of men, especially bv such men as are mentioned above. It was supposed that the Albany Regency had already inflicted a sufficient quantity of misery upon the people ol this State?it wa*thoug'nt, ind loudly proclaimed by thousands of the democratic party, that Croswell should n- ver again be recognised as a dictator in their ranks. But what do we see? Mo sooner is he appointed State printer than he worms himself into the aftectione of the unsuspecting Governor, and draws around him a set of equally discarded politicians. grasps the rudder of State, and is nowsteering the ship, with the velocity of steam, into the identical whirlpool which engulphed the party in 1837. We are sorry to learn this?we fear these men carry venom under their tongues, and tl we mistake not, their only object is to render the Governor as odious as possible with the people, by making unpopular appointments, in order to prevent his r?-nomination in 1844Thursday's Storm.?We continue to hear of its seventy. All the mai's from the north, south, east, and .vest, have been deranged by it. See ship news for disasters. The steamer Mohegan, Captain Thayer, arrived from Stonington, at 5 30 P. M , yesterday afternoon. She left Mew York with 140 pissengirs on Thurs uji at i: o ciock, ana encounit-rru me gaie in tne Sound thnight, having rode it out at anchor two miles wr -a from the Dumpline*, at the entrance of Fishy I.-'and Sound She weighed anchor, and reached Stonington at half past eight the next rnorning. She has thusgiven another proof of her fine iu i'ltv as a e.i boat, having also been in the Sound during th" dreadful night in which the President is supposed to have been lost Captain Thayer reports that the ship .General Williams, of N< w London, and bound there from a whaling V". came through the Mace on the evening of tue gale, and anchored about three miles west of Hatchet's Reef, cut away her main and mizen mast, and rode out the gale. The captain, and five or six of the crew left her for the pui|>ose of landing The boat in which they embarked was found with one man near Seybrook the next morning, the captain and'the others having perished.

The "noctes ambrosiaiue et cocnaque deoruni" of <^Uio cpher North, have become a? familiar to all I as Leasehold words. What just cause or impediment is there, that a new nodes, through the medium ot the Herald should not h?written, and shed its halo oi glory and ol light throughout the whole earth? Moved by these reflections, I have commenced this article, and though you may find in its execution "the flesh weak," be assured the "spirit is willing." In the dirty city of New York, (Croton River to the contrary nolwithstandine) in the pleasant and tulip spotted street, yclept Broadway, there stands an Hotel, known to the immortal few as the "St. George." Its outward form possesses neither grace or beauty?plain and unpretending, but within, its bnnes are full of marrow and good things. There can the weary obtain a cup of coffee, such as no where else is to be found in this goodly city?the aroma of which rises up in your nostrils like a sweet smelling sacrifice, and the taste will convince you that it is of a truth the true ambrosia upon which the gods in former days, held their revels on High Olympus The "eating and the drinking, and the run of the kitchen," is there to be found also, in a i?erfection which few eyss have seen. This imperfect introduction is neeessarv. so that the indi viduals who from time to time may appear upon this, ourstage, as the inhabitantsofthis "blessed sphere," may be known and judged in accordance with the company they keep, and the comforts they enjoy "ab uno disce omnes." At this House there is neither a regular club, or club room established, but a nightly assemblage sits in high conclave, and solemn council, to talk ever the past, the present, and the future?and when the mouth becomes dry and tongue heavy, the creature con.forts are produced, and each and all, the listener and the speaker, mingle, in equal proportions, the "utile cum dulce." f remarked before, that there was no regular club room, still in a quiet little place, in the basement, far removed from the (trying eyes of the "ignobile vulgus," there nightly re-unions take place. A large table placed in the centre of the room, und classically covered with green cloth, chairs and beaches, comprise the whole furniture of this room About this table the members generally stand orsit, some with sticks in th^ir hands, and others with cigars in their faces. The place may literally and truly be ca led Liberty Hall?each member paddles his canoe his own way, and every tub stands on its own bottom. Thus far nr. President has been appointed, the assemblage being strictly democratic, maintaining as one of the cardinal points, that "all men are born free and equal." There has been some talk of a regular organization, on the Tammany plan, by which Sachem, Scribes and Members should be selected, and I am inclined to think this will take place?for of late, some of the unknown people have visited the place, and recklessly "rushed in, where angels fear to tread " Speaking of angels, I may remark, that inasmuch as all the members are known as the devoted admirers and slaves of "Heaven's last best gift to man," it hn9 been proposed to have a small boudoir erected, so that the divinities that walk upon this, ourearth, may,with their presence and their smiles, etbenelise and gladden theae nightly meetings. For mie, i gome enure swine tortnis pian, as l nave ever heard from the lips of wise men, and learned from mv own limited experience, that there is no place where woman should not be the chiefest ornament, the very corner stone A member who is reading over my shoulder, exclaims, "by the imtnorial alligators," (queer oath is'nt it) "you speak, amigo m< o, the words ol eternal truth and soberness." Thus supported and sustained, i go my death for "the boudoir." It may also be proper to state that we have a general ministering spirit called "Tom" attached to the room, and upon especial occasions, we have a little "secretary;" each of whom, though not very large, yet like a tin pot, are very useful. I believe, my dear editor, 1 have given you such a description of the locale a? to make the place visible to your mind's eye. In my next number of this new noctes, 1 purpose taking you by the right hand and introducing vou to each and all ol the members. We will drop in at random, without any extra preparations,so that you may have a fair sample of all the good things which been said -and dom- tor many a by-gone night. In the hope of right speedily t iking you among these choice spirits of this earth, I affectionately greet ye. Vale. The Somen' Case?Reply of the Judge Advocate to the Attack* of the Courier iVi Enquirer, TO THE rUBLIC._.... in inu uouner at tnqujrtr.o; mis morning, i una mysen assailed l>v u false and malignant libel. 1 am not aware of any one else being the editor of that paper, but Colonel Webt. The private traduction of one, whose slanderous columns havenot lett him two g.'od legs to stand upoif, 1 should not heed ; nor would I quarrel wi'h any endeavor, in respect to the VcKenzie case, to treat the public at an idiot and write out its oilt, by garbled statements of judi. cial proceedings. He is mistaken. I am old enough to prove, with the lest men of my native city, an unblemished character. Does he envy me ? At present, the imputations in that article, are simply pronounced false. When this trial is over, I will furnish this public with proof that a more false set of imputations could not have been devised, and the direct contrary of which it is in my |?wer conclusively to establish. It is possible, that on the advice of friends, I may also vindicate the outraged purity ot the press, and may violated private and professional character in a court of justice. WILLIAM H. NORRI9, Judge Advocate. Saturday, March 18, 1843 Late from Brazil ?The Adario, arrived yesterday lrom Rio de Janeiro, with advices to the 21st of January. She has on board two thousand bags of coffee, which had been discharged from the Franklin, returned to Rio in a leaky condition. It was reported at Rio that the Ministers had all resigned. Tranquillity has been fully restored in all the provinces, particularly in S Paulo and Minas. It apjiears tnat the foreign fradeof Kio has fallen off", while the domestic trade has increased. The importation of flour had fallen off 83,000 barrels in one year. Janquin Jos? Luiz has been appointed President of the Province of St. Paulo,and Joa? Thomas Henriques, of Minas Gerres. The minister of Justice has proposed a complete reform in the penal code of the Empire. Further from Montevideo.?We have advices from Montevideo to December 29th. General Ross had made no reply to the demand of the British and French ministers, that the war with the Oriental Republic should cease. General Orihe was still in the province of Entre llios, and a body of 600 men, which he had ordered to Salto had repassed the Uruguay, so that there was not a single Argentine soldier within the Oriental State at the last advices. General Rivera was at the Rio Negro, reorganizing his army. General Paz had his headquarters at Molino, near Montevideo. The Comei Again.?The comet was out again i_... : r..n c. i _n i-. .i. _ i i I ijuji rvriiin* in inn luruc, (u11 huu an?uui iiir iipuu Whether this 1? to be regarded a8 an indispensable function to a comet,for not, we are unable to say ? It is a function which is very often non ml inventus in other bodies, and why may not a comet Ret along a* well without a head, as other corporations'!? Were the comet a Corporation Banking Institution, we should be strongly inclined to the opinion that its head had absquatulated. If the millennium is actually approaching, and the world about to be burnt up, it is very possible that the tail of this comet may be appointed to back up in this quarter nnd ti<ke ofT the sinners, according to the plan of the ingenious and immortal Whis. ton, who believed that cornets were [daces of punishment for the wicked,who were alternately wheeled into regions of intolerable heat, and afterwards exposed to all the rigors of the most intense cold.? So look out. The Comkt at Sea.?The Comet was seen from on board the Ailario, arrived yesterday Irom Kio, on Tuesday evening, the 5th instant, when in Int. 29 N. and Ion. <ir> W. It illuminated the whole western horizon for upwards of three hours. A Bkim-iant Meteor.?Since writing the above, we are informed that a most brilliant and remarkable meteor made its appearance also evening in the Southwest, and -ailed along over towards the North eastern horizon, where it burst w ith great in ihgnation, scattering fire and fury in every direction, to the great alarm and discomfiture of the Millerites It was visible for some minutes. It is very manifest that something is going on. So look out. Trial of Commander Mackenzie. Thr only thing of intercut in Friday'* proceeding* was the presentation ol tin. lollowing document* by Communder McKenzie:? Baooai.yn, Kinoi Couxtt, N?:w York, **?Alexander Slidell NlcKenxiu being duly sworn, suith that tho paper hereunto annexed, masked A, is the paper referred to by him in the Oftiial Re|>ort made by him to the Secretary of the Nary, tinder date ot the 19th day ol December la?t, or thereabouts, and iu the paper submitted to thit court by him on the 11th day ot March Inst., or thereabouts, as the memorandum or ? riting taken down lrom the lipsol Mr Spencer on the deck of the Somerson the first day of December last, in an interview then and there hod between this deponent and the said Mr. Spencer, and immediately previous to his ex ecu ion. And this d< ponent further saith that the said paper, marked A, is the only memorandum or writing ol any description made by hint on that day, while iu communion lion with Mr. Spencer, or having any connection with any passage, verbal or written, aent to his parents, or an) thing of that kind or description, anil that the said paper A is the whole of such memoratidur- or writing. And thit deponeth further saith that the said Philip II. Spencer neither dictated nor delivered to him any letter or message, verbal or written, than is contained in the said memorandum And thit deponent further saith that the latter portion of the said paper, marked A, ending with the words "my father," and beginning with the words "God who was,'' was written by him subsequent to his said conversation with Mr Spencer, but within a very short time thereafter, and for the purpose ot keeping alive his recollection ol the facts.

After some discussion, these papers were placed on the record. FORTIETH DAT. The Court convened at the usual hour yesterday, and the reading of the documents forwarded by the accused to the Navy Depariment was resumed. One of these papers gave rise to a little scenebetween the Judge Advocate and Commander MeKenzie. One ofthe papers had some writing on the rerrrsr side, which the accused laid bad nothing to do with tha ca*p. ami could not be made evidence of, although the whole paj>er might go on tha record. The Judge Advocate in silted that this was wrong? that at the paper was to go on the record, its contents mutt all be read. The Court thought there was no necessity for reading it all, and to this course the Judge Advocate excepted with some pertinacity, until Commander McKenzie said, ' he supposed if it had been a private letter to his wife, the Judge Advocate would have manifested the same in clination to protract the proceedings, by peeping into it." The Judge Advocate, at this taunt, turned round and looked Commandpr McKenzie full in the face, the latter having a copy of the Courier f- Knjuirer in his hand a' the time, and said, with a marked emphasis, "Ah, sir, all this charge about protraction will he property replied to very shortly. 1 have never manifested any desire to peep into private papers?hut let it go." Midshipman Hays was then recalled, and examined hy the Judge Advocate in relation to the c Trying awav of the mast, and as to ihe deportment of Mr. Spencer from the time his doom was announced, up to the time he was executed. On this latter point only one thing worth reporting was elicited, viz , that Spencer sat en the camp stool until he was taken to the gangway, and did not go down on his knees. BytheCovRT ?Was not your attention called off from the copduct of the prisoners, on the day ot execution, by your duties as officer ot the deck 7 A ?No : 1 was not the officer of the deck.

Q?Have you heard Mr. Spencer complain of Captain McKenzie's conduct towards him ? A.?Yes ; I have heard lain speak of the cominandcr'J censuring him in an angry way. The examination of Mr. Hays being closed, the President asked the Judge Advocate who he intended to call next. The Judge Advocate replied Alexander McKie. Th? only point of interest in his examination was, that he testified that Commander McKenzin, in his address to the crew alter the execution, said that " he was satis fied that the youns man (Spencer) had teen lying to hini for half an hour hrfore his death." The court adjourned till Monday. General Putnam. Tammany Halt., New York, March 15,1843. James Gordon Bennett, Esq., Editor of the Herald :? 1 observed in your paper, a short time since, an extract from a lecture delivered in Boston by Mr. Bancroft, in which he states that he has arrived at the conclusion that Col. Prescott. and not General Putnam, commanded at the battle of Banker's Hill; that Putnam left the lines early in the morning for reinforcements, and did not return until late, when he came without them ; and, then, nothing saved him from a reprimand from Washington, but the act that he was not in command during the day. < >n reading it to mv father-in-law, Mr. Daniel Jones, now in his 88th year, who was engaged in tliar memorable battle, he immediately exclaimed, " It is not true!" and then related to me the following account:?" A part of the army left Cambridge after dark, and proceeded to the hill, where they arrived about midnight, and immediately commenced throwing up breast-works; that during the night he saw Putnam several times at work, with a spade or pick, encouraging the men by his presence and example, and in the morning saw him mounted on his horse, which he remembers was a sorrel ; and during the fight, when the British were advancing, distinctly recollects hearing him say, "Boys, don't fire until you can see the white of their eyes;" and he is certain that Putnam did not leave the hill until our men were driven from it. The reinforcement expected was at Cambridge, under the command of Col. Oarrieh, who had been instructed the night previousto march to the bill e<rlv in the morning ; but he did not come, for which di-ohedience or neelect In; was tried by a court martial, and dismissed from the army." Mr. Jones, although near eighty < igiit years ot age, and totally blind, enjoys good health, and his mental faculties are unimpaired; and he is positive that General Putnam was in command at the battle of Bunker Hill. Respectfully, your obedient servant, Joseph Lrojt. Freaks of the Barhimlakf..?We takejthe, following paragraphs from the Philadelphia Imjuirerot yesterday. They are curious t?

National Distribution Fund?Bunk Commission Bill?Radical Victory?Canal Bunk of Albany? Measurer* of Grain of New York, <$ <" 4*cDear Sir :? A few/'ays previous to the retirement of Governor Sewurd from oflice, he despatched Lewis Benedict to the* city ot Washiugton to get New York's share of the distribution land. This messenger brought the money, took therelrom some six hundred dollar#, and delivered the remainder, about $84,000, into the hands of the State treasurer i. This money was deposited in the Commercial Bank at thut time, and remains there still, awaiting the action of the Legislature. One iiarty being opposed to the distribution law, took 110 notice of it, until a day or two since, when the Senate were devising ways and means to pay canal contractors. Mr. Barker proposed taking this fund and using it for that purpose. This was opposed with spirit, fcby Foster, lYuniston and Uuger, who contended that ns the Legislature hud not yet decided whether the money should be received, it could no' theretorebe consi dered as legally belonging to the State. The whigs advocated the proposition of Judge Bockee, but it was lost bv a very decided vote. 1 should not be

surprised if it was sent buck to Washington. The Hank Commission Bill has finally been disposed of in the House; it passed by nn overwhelming vote, as it was first introduced, without adopting any of the amendment-1. It proposes to take the appointment from the hands of the Governor, and vest it in the Legislature. It will undoubtedly pass the Senate. This will frustrate the plans which Willonghby and Hamilton had laid. Neither of these ghosts of the lobby will now obtain the office of Bank Commissioner. As the Radicals have conquer d the old Hunkers, they now leel confident of selecting anti-bank men. These will be Michael Hoffman, Henry H. Van Dyck, and Ell Moore. Under the inspection and supervision of these men, the banks may expect no favors, but the people cat! relv upon their bounty and fatthfnlneM, and t at every rotten concern in the State will be thoroughly proved to the bottom. There are sly whisperings in relation to the Canal Bank of this city. The death of tiie President, and the consequent loss ot his financial skill and experience from the Hoard of Directors, has been the means of withdrawing, in a great manner, public confidence from the bank. The uflairs are now chiefly managed by Edwin Croswell, a bankite of no small experience, and Theodore Olcott, the cashier, one of the brothers of the skilful gentleman of Watervleit notoriety. iMy advice is to look with a cautious eye to the bills of the Canal Hank of Albany, as most of its circulation is distributed in remote sections ot the state. The appointment of a host of measures by our (the New York) Common Council, has brought Lawton, the newly appointed General, to the Capitol, and lie has already got a bill introduced into the Assembly, which nullifies this act ol the present accidental whig board, how it will succeed in the Senate is very doubtful, as the subject will be referred to Varian and Scott,who are both so cross-grained, that they will be as apt to defeutthe bill, as they did the contract bill. It depends very much whether Varian can rake up another brotVer-in-law,who can come in tor a chance Thus far I have heeu unsuccessful in my solicitations. Although I have rulled every wire?had recourse to everv method which mv friends have advised nie of; although I have avowed myself a tee totaller in temperance? talked Dutch to the Governor?affected a wonderful degree ot piety, and attended tire Presbyterian church,Dr. Sprague's, when ever His Excellency attends, in order to bring niyself intentionally under his observation?besides performing divers other borrowed characters, yetnot to this moment have I any more assurances oi' being appointed, than I hud when I ariived here in themrly par: of January. Now,*as I am becoming d'sgusted with this nrmmirerorrio sort of Miss Nancy business, I have dotermined to make another desperate effort, anil ri ploy means which must speedily d'cid-m due.

Business?Politics?Reliction?The Bankrupt Laic? Election News?Amusements?The IVcatlicr, fyc. James Gordon Bennett, Esq.? Sir.ce my Inst there has been no material change in commercial affairs, and business generally, for several months, in fact, since the closing of navigation in the fall, has been extremely dull. A great quantity of produce, such as the various kinds of grain, bepf and pork, poultry, butter and cheese, apples, ike , has found a market here at unusually low prices. At the present prices a, great deal of provisions may be purchased for a little money, but with many,the great secret is to get the money, and I have no doubt hundreds in the city have found it difficult to obtain even the common necessaries of life. However, spring time is at band, and those who arp inclined to habits of industry, will find something to do for a livelihood. Several hundred tnen are now employed by the canal superintendent, whose earnings afford them a corfortable support. Nothing new has transpired here of late in reference to ooliticd affairs, except the establishment of a new Tyler paper, by Salisbury,Manchester & Co., the former proprietors of the Commercial Advertiser, This paper is very neatly got up, and is to receive considerable patronage from the government It t? resectable in appearance, but how it will succeed, I am unable to say?at all events, as this firm is so well known here, and the Commercial, or at least its editor and proprietors, are so decidedly unpopular, it cannot fail of making a great "inroad" upon the patronage and circulation of the latter journal. In fact, the conductors of the Commercial are disliked by many of their own party, and universally so by their opponents. I)r. Foote, in his profession, is undoubtedly a scientific man; but as an editor of a political paper, he is totally unfit. He has not the hnppy faoul y of pleasing those of refined taste, but indulges so much in venting his own spleen and malice towards those who oppose him politically, that his feelings tuny be traced, line by line, through almost every paragraph from his pen. As for Jewett, he can scarcely write three consecutive lines grammatically, to say nothing of his intolerable indolence.. t-iood dinners and high living appear to be the gods he worships, lie is exceedingly oenurious in his disposition, and if possible more unpopular than the learned Dr. The religious excitement is still kept up at the Methodist Church, and many proless to have found the "pearl of great price." At several of the other churches revivals have been commenced, and :11anv are in hopes a great out-pouring of divine lavor will be the re.-ult of the arduous and devoted labors of christians Let the good work continue, and let not only sinners he converted, hut let backsliders lie reclaimed?let hypocrites fie purged from iniquity, and let the wicked I am lhaf "the way of the transgressor i3 hard." We have, in addition to the meeting at the regular churches, a Mormon preacher, (who has succeeded in converting a few to his golden faith) holding torlh at one of the minor churches Vexl, perhaps, we shall have a Millente. What tanataeism ? What Tomfoolery! The charter eleciion this spring, has been warmly contested by both parlies. Every inch of ground has been disputed, and the lines of party were never more closely drawn. Joseph <i. Martin, the democratic candidate for Mavor, iselerted by a majority of about 500. Both the democratic justices are elected and the Aldermen for the five wards, stand six democratic to four whies. The democratic gain in thiscity since March 1M2, is estimated at 201 votes! Black Rock has done noblv, having elected the entire democratic ticket. In the matter of amusements, we have nothing, except balls and parties, many of the most fashionable of which, linve been given by bankrupts! Mr. K ice has again leased the Eagle St. Theatre for the coming season, and intends opening on the first of Mav, witli a strong nnd efficient company. The weather, during the month of February, in fact up to the present date, has been remarkably cold, and a late navigation is anticipated by many of our citizens. Last spring, it will he remembered, we had n steamboat arrival from the West on ihe 7ili March, hut ibis spring, Irom present indications, it will probably be 11 month Inter. However, our steamboat owners and lorwarder will be in readiness as soon as the ice disapfiears. Yours, fee. S. City intelligence* Pot.icr Nothing yesterday before the Police worthy of notice.

Barnum, in this engagement, has commenced a new era in the management of mu-eums. Importing eminent performers from Europe to gratify the curiosity of the American public, has heretofore been confined to the great capitalists of the theatre and opera. In commencing this enterprise he hns secured, perhaps, the most hrillians per former that evpr appeared upon the stage; one who in the realm of mngic and enchnntment reigns as supreme as ever did Malibran in song, or Taglioni in the ballet, and wo predict thnt the beautiful Mary Darling is destined to make a sensation in t^e United States and the Cansdns, nat inferior to that which attended the advent ol Celeste or Elssler. She is the Prima Donna of Enchantment, darzling by her splendor, and bewitching by her loveliness. Chang Kong, the Chinese Juggler, who arrived some months since in London, accompanies her performance, and the native humorist and melodi't, Mr. Jenkins, also makes up a part of each nightk performance.

Provides that the annuity provided in section 3, shall for ever be set apart for the tehool fund. This is a laudable attempt at compromise, but is probably not meant in good faith. It .is a singular idea to sill out an insolvent company, and make the purchaser liable for its debts ! The present quotation for Maryland fives in Baltimore is 38. Probably the whole amount as above, stated.could be bought at an uvernge of 75. which would be about $9,000,000. The price of the Baltimore Railroad Stock is but 30. It is very gratifying, however, to observe the attempts at compromising and getting clear of their debts now making in many of the States, Illinois and Maryland. Far belter is it tode this,than to retain their illgotten wealth in,and cither defraud the creditors out of them, or endeavor to get other States to pay tor thein, and al low the insolvent Statrs to keep them. In Louisiana and Alabama, where the debts have been contracted to create banks, and the proceeis lost in speculation, there is nothing but a list of bad debts ta hand the creditor in compromise. Florida, Mississippi, Arkansas, Alabama and Louisiana nte so situated, owing $40,000,000, Tor which bonds are outstanding. What a tremendous difference it is to the citizens of th se States?instead of hariDg so large a sum of money poured in among them from abroad, stimulating all tbeir expenses, and raising prices upon them, encouraging them to contract debts in high values, to he obliged to turn round and pay back that money i'( addition to their other losses a<.d misfortunes.
