Thk Meeting, Second Series, in n -VVINTH W ARD, TO-NIOHT.? 1 IllS 18 111*- tirsl mov ii cnt, second scries, to ascertain by philosophic and physical experiment, whether it is possible i organise a Tyler party here?and'thus to hold th check over the whigs and locofocos. The spring now opens?the weather is pleasan and the first seed is sown. All attempts hithert made have tailed. Under the inspiration caugli from John Jones, w? make this attempt gratis. ] will cost the Captain nothing?not even the break ng of a promise?for like jnior Major Noah,we hav not given up a Judgeship worth (J2,<HX), and the ot nothing but empty promises in return. As a guide to the Tyler men, we give the follow nig programme of the present principles of Captai Tyler, as promulrated by John Janes They at unchangeable till after the election. PHisciri.K? or Johs Tyler. Kirst. No Bank. The President hu? vetoed two Ban bills, and saved the country from a moneyed despotisr whon all else was lost He has proven himself to be Ai ti-bank, for he has walked through the fiery furnace i party, with two vetoes and the Constitution in his hand Skcond. A Revenue Tariff. The President vetoed tl first TaritfhiU?conflicting with this principle?and sigi ed the second hill, on the same principle, we preaum that Messrs. Woodbury, Wright, Buchanan, and others i Democratic principles voted for it. Thiko Nn Di.trihiitinn. The President vetoed t? bill* of Distribution? again standing in between the r publican people and their Federal enemies, whau all eb was lost. Fourth. No Abolitionism. The President is from tb State of Virginia. Fifth. No public debt, and an economical administr tion of public attain. In the year 1838 the Federal Go' eminent was administered at a cost of thirty-eight mi lions'of dollars?in 1842 the Government cost the peopi twenty millions?(sec the various reports from the D partments of the Government for their present almost ui paralleled condition of properous and frugal administr tion ) Sixth. Universal white suffrage,with universal educ tion. This is the language anil the sentiment of Thomi Jefferson. Summary.?No Bank?a Revenue Tariff?no Distribi tion?no Abolitionism ?a strict construction of the Coi stitution. as by Jefferson?no Public Debt?an economici administration of Public Affairs?and Universal 8uffrag with Universal Education! Here is capital ground to work upon. Come fortl ve "fierce young democracie" in your strength, an organize a lorps at reserve 10 noiu uie oaiance i power. A mighty change is at hand, if things a right The Captain's mind is unfixed, and sonv thing must be done to fix it?also to decide the ne: election A full report of the meeting to be held in tf Seventh Ward to night, will be found in the Heral of to-morrow morning. Major Noah?Another Change ?We unde stand from good authority, that Major Noah hi thrown up the Tyler party, and has now come 01 for Martin Van Buren. The Major has returned to his first love?Va B ren and democracy, after having taken a ver amusing voyage round the world of politics, o which he is writing an interesting book. He i pretty savage now upon Captain Tyler, and witi some reason too. It seems that at the solicitatioi ol the Captain, during a visit made by the Major ti Washington, about a year ago, he was int' iced igive up his judgeship, worth S2.0t^ in order to organize the Tyler party,and starpaper. After expending a great deal of 1 , an losing 100 pounds of fat in the heai of iigh Captain Tyler has left the Major in the -nej lected his advice?and given him nothing in retun The Major advised the Captain to remove Danii Webster, to re-organize his cabinet, to call Silt Wright to be his chief adviser?and infuse large dose of" old democracy" into the Custoi House and Post Office. The Captain here pr< rrised?but has failed to perform, besides leavin the Major high and dry?losing his office as judgf and getting nothing in return. Now all this is very naughty in Captain Tylei and inconsequence thereof, Major Noah is tired t Tylerism, and has returned to his first love, Va Buren and democracy?at least, he says Van Bure ia th- only man that has any chance to be net President, seriously, tiowrvrr, we certainly thin that Captain Tyler has treated Majar Noah rath< cavalierly, but during the next two years we expet the Captain may reform and redeem his promisei We'll see. The Ball OrENs.?The whigs have nominate Robert L Smith as their candidate for Mayor, an the locofocos Robert H. Morris. Both are capiti nominations. In the mean time, both parties are already t work, collecting their forces and preparing for th day of action. It will be a warmly contests election?and if the " fierce young democracie organize on the Tyler ground, to keep the balant of power, they can decide the day. Great fun expected. Who is Governor of Rhode Island 1?This ir portant question is to he discussed and settled in tl Tabernacle to-morrow evening, by Eli Moore ar Horace Greeley. Can these eminent orators teil i who is the man in the moon ? how much cottr cloth it would take to make breeches to the come or how long it will be before Fourierism fill th earth with the unities and harmonies I Av Important Result?perhaps.?The electio of the Mayor and Corporation, the week afte next, in New York, may lay the foundation for change in the Presidency in 1844. If the whif succeed, it may cause the triumph of Clay?if th locofocos get the day, it may be that of Van Burei Tyler alone holds the balance of power in his hand and may do wonders for himself. :?tale iikkr.? i ne controversy oetween vrener Cass and Mr. Webster.

Qitrstiovr Wrtttrji ii* Blood ?Who mnrdert M try H'jgers ' Who shot Cor lis)' i ^ Bishop Hi'ghvs* Lecture Last Night at the J Tabernacle.?The Right Reverend Bishop Hughes delivered a lecture last night at the Tabernacle, on "Social Servitude.'* The great popularity and exI tended influence of this prelate, was very cleariy ti B>' 1 exhibited, in the congregation of the dense crowds ' rj e, wliich filled the spacious building. We observed | ^ | that the injuries which the platform and seals of the j c Tabernacle sustained at the riotous Tyler meeting, j c if have been repaired; and several of the auditors 1 e- bore away with them, on their clothing, very satis j al factory evidence that the Rev. David Hale had ^ io been employing paint, in the restoration of the de- j ? ie cent appearance of this sanctuary. N Bishop Hughes is one el the most agreeable lec- j p t, turers we have ever heard, and possesses in a re j 1 o nmrkable degree the faculty of adapting his style to i J,' it the comprehension of surh popular assemblages as j It he is accustomed to address, without at all descend-I ^ ing from the dignified and impressive. He com- j >> e menced his lecture by a reference to the three great j1 n divisions ot society?the wealthy, who can com- ? mand the labor of others, without having either I t r- to obey or to labor themselves?the large classes n who, although obliged to labor for subsistence, can e yet regulate at their own pleasure the hours ot toil and of rest?and those who are altogether dependent on labor,and that according as it may be required by g k the interest or caprice of others. Altera hasty sketch o oftliedepressed and sutlering condition at the present 0 of day, of those who are doomed to the lowest grade ot t ^ social servitude, the lecturer proceeded to take an ^ a- historical survey of the state and condition of the p Greek and Roman slaves, and the serfs ot the mid- c die ages. He drew a startling pictnre ot their suf- F 0 ferings and degradation, and then pointed out with 'N much eloquence how the growing progress ot Chris- t tianity had emancipated these enslaved masses, a 16 and described the manner in which the Church of a- Rome had aided in this great work of redemption > and amelioration. He dwelt at some length on the lt> state of the world on the eve of the lleformation.und ? '** represented it as presenting every prospect of the ad- F a. vancing and most glorious progress and happiness of * the human race. But that event, he contended, had b witnessed a woful obstacle to the advancing tide " of social improvements, and was the main cause a ^ of the present evils which so afflict the European il world, and even threaten the downfall of some n e> of the most powerful nations of the earth. t Following out this view, the lecturer proceeded J to argue that the chief cause of the depreciation of o q labor in England, and the consequent destitution of gl the working classes, was to be found in the nonobservance of the Catholic festivals, which he f( st alleged had been originally instituted for the pur- L pose of diminishing the amount and increasing the |e value of the labor of those condemned to social ser- j Ijj vitude. The Catholic nations of the European con- ? tinent?Belgium?Italy ? Spain?France, which j were ever the rivals of England in manu- E r" facturing various products, observed those j is holvdays, which England neglected, and thus gain- J ut ed forty or fifty days in the year of additional labor, for the same reward, which this enabled her to out- ^ n strip and undersell all her continental competitors J y (hi this ingenious ecclesiastical solutionof the pre- j n sent depressed state of the working classes in Engs land, and ' f the other prominent points in thisdis- j b course, we have not at nresent room In rnmm^nt .1 n | We give. however, the substance of the lee'ure, j 11 a id rriBi return on another occasion to the subjects w eh it en ;>MCed, wlien we will enter on some ex- j animation oi the soundness and accuracy of the j( i Right Revei nd lecturer's views on the important ? " I questions in political economy which he undertook \ '? to discuss. J1 u Catholicttv and Protestantism.?The views which we presented the othet day, relative to the l6 comparative progress of Catholicity and the "re- J a formed faith," and the explanation which we ot- q fered of the rapid strides of the former, and the le- 1 v thargic and stationary condition of the latter, have j met with confirmation in a quarter which gives manifest evidence of candor and impartiality. The 1 Rev. Dr. Durbin,'President of Dickinson College, "j] r Carlisle, Pa., a gentleman of liberal sentiments, * ){' sound judgment, and great intelligence, and whore- J.1 cently made an extensive tour in Europe, and is at p present in Palestine, thus writes to his friends, 0 . through the columus of" the newspapers:"? lliKcvarauu; aiutliciiut U?U?UU.v>.S..u, ??! a a system of faith considered in itself, and as an external in- c >j stitution, acting upon society an such, and forming an in- b tegral and necessary part of the government in Catholic o countries. I have no doubt- no intelligent Protestant in p S. Europe can doubt?but that Catholicism is gradually re- g gaining its ground in Europe, under the direct or indirect tl patronage of most of the monarchies, because they find it o j a very convenient and powerful means of controlling the q mass of the people through the pi iesthood. In Italv and r d Austria the clergy are in correspondence with the t a] Bishops, and the Bishops with the Minister of Police. ( Louis Philippe and the Church had no friendship for each t other seven years since; now they are in close alliance; \ It and, with a returning sense of religion among the people r of France, there is a corresponding return of the Church j to [lower. The ceremonies and decorations of the churches 6 d are arranged to suit the state of society, so as to strike f ,?> and captivate the mass of the jteople Thence she is ac- j quiring her influence again over two divisions of the com- t munity; over kings and rulnfs, because they need her as a \ j| means of government, and over the mass ef the lower ? ordtrs, because she is so arranged in her exernal cere- ? monies as to strike and gratify the senses, and so adapted t by her sacraments, particularly of penance, and her doc- e n. trineof purgatory, as to assure to the ear, after auricular y confession, the pardon of sin, and the hope of es- v cape in the next world, if not quite successful in this, y id While in England, she is acquiring great influence, first, b . by greatly multiplying and expanding her external ma- p chinery, such as finechurches and cathedrals,schools and in colleges, and the residence of many missionary priests; secondly, by the strange approximation of many of the g clergy of the establishment to what is essential to Catho- c e licisrn , but, most of all, by the too equal division of whigs andtories, so as togive the balance of power, during the \ last administration, very much to the Catholic party rep- ( resented by Mr. O'Connell ; and when we remember that r the relig ious faith of a Catholic is superior to his political s r opinions, while, on the contrary, the liberal faith of a g Protestant is subordinate to his political opinions, we shall t sen the true power and position of the Catholic church in j (b affairs of government where there are popular elections, t ie 1 must in justice add another element of power in which, g as a Christian. I rejoice. I refer to the increased morality j " and respectability of the clergy. i s, While the church is acquiring power and influence t with sovereigns and kings, and with the masses of people, t the educated and intelligent (lortion of the community are | much better affected towards her than they were fifty or a ) h1 hundred years ago, considering her purely as a religious |y institution, involving faith ami morals simply ; but they < . have an invincible aversion towards ?a external a' institution, acting on socieiy as such, because :iU she effectually destroys the hope of liberty, or the < spread of liberal principles, which this middle in- \ y- telligent class in Kuropc cherish almost exclusively, t The result is, thi" class is neutralise! in decidedly Catho- ( ie lie countries, and the nobility are declining in influence | and also in numbers, because the sovereign fears them ] - end i pproximntes the people by the intervention of the < ie cliurch. which sympathises with the highest and the low- f r] est portions of the community ontb" continent, but not f ' with the middle intelligent liberal class. This is tne true ( position of the Catholic cliurch at this time in decidedly t j|. Catholic countries, as in Italy and Austria, and imper- f ci ptibly increasing in semi Catholic countries, even t a win-re the government are Protestant.

The body being stripped and examined, J i no other wound was found except that on the back part ' of the shoulder, corresponding with the hole in the gar- J" ' mentr; this opening was small, and circular, slightly ir- h > regular, or ragged at the mouth. An instrument passe 1 0 into this opening, passed iu a direction inward and some- J" ' what downward As wa were about to make a farther ex- ' 1 amination, objections was made by a friend of the dec- as * ' ed, and it was concluded to defer the examination until 10 ? ' o'clock next morning. 8 ' At ihat time the examination was resumed; an incision ll F- wos then ma le, and the integument wag raised up from c n the bone underneath; the bone being exposed, it" was v ' lotind that the opening passed through it, perforating it, ? ' and passing on underneath in the same direction, as 1 before Mentioned,inwardand sonu-what downward. " ' The cavity of the cite t was then opened and the left c r si-ieo! the chest was found to contain a good deal of blood. 8 This being removed, an opening was laund passing * i through tlie upper margin ot the sixth rib, fracturing the 8 1 rib. The opening was then traced on ward through the " s lung, entering th pericardium, and entering the left au- ' ricale of the heart.and passing onward to the right aide '' 1 of the heart, is here a hall was found-such a wound is " usually fatal.

D., who, I believe, is le author of a work on Veterinary Surgery, opened the ?se for the dofeuce. He said he should lay down the law, and state tho facts a which the prisoner relies for his defence. He said lat young Mercer was of a fragile frame?of hi lions tern erament?highly nervous?much atflipted with constiation?which leads directly to insanity. In his y >uth e was afilicted with tho'croup. Mr. Browne here went n to detail the history of the family of Mr. Mercer, pre. isely as we have given it already. The youngest ot the imily is only eleven years of age When he spoke of Irs. Mercer, the mother, young Singleton the prisoner, ept bitterly. He said that Sarah was mild, modest, ondsurning, hut of no great strength of understanding. She as never been to a theatre, nor to a hall room, nor to any ther place o( public amusement in her life. He gave iutchin'on Heberton a very black character. Mr.Browne ext stftteil mai somcwucre mhuiii me m?i 01 uirjmi arah Mercer wont to pay a visit to the house of a Mr. Osorne, a house carpenter. He failed, ami his wife connec ?1 lier?elf with a woman bv the name of Hughes, to keep boarding house. .Mrs. Osborne had some daughters. >ne of them was sick, and Sarah Mercer and one of the aughters went out to get somo grapes which the sick girl bought she rould eat. In the street these girls first saw Intchinson Heberton, who was a fine looking person, larah mistook him for a y oung Spaniard by the name of lastido. whom she had before seen,and who bears a slight esemhlance to Heberton. She addressed him, fcc., as we lave before related. The next afternoon, Sarah was sent ut on an arrant [errand7] and again met Heberton at the orner of Tine street and Third, as we have before stated. They walked from there to the corner of Pino and Queen tr? et, near whore her father lives, which is in Queen st, n thenorth side, a few doors east of Front st. She met him gain?when he told her his real name?and made love i) her. She was foolishly fascinated wi'h him. We erne now to an i iysortant interview between them This fas at n house in Eliz ibeth street, as we have before statd. In this room there, was a bed?ami Sarah objected to topping?wanted to leave the hous*. Heberton turned he key in the door, and refused to let her go. He proeeded then to take from her her bonnet anil her clonk, nd threw her on the bed He then took of his cloak, and lie jumped up?he caught her and threw her on the bed gain?at the same time showing her a pistol, and tiding her that unless she submitted to him she would never ee her family again. She liecame i.larmed?fainted ? and e committed a rape upon her pet eon- But you shall have ier own story from n> r own innocent lips. We shall alo produce other witnesses who heard her screams at the muse in Elizabeth street. Mr. Biow no said it had been old him that he did not understand his case, because he ?

He is every when poken of very highly. Aktkrjioo'* SvmioK-. Mr. Browhi: resumed his opening. He proceeded ti ay down the law applie .ble to the case. His first poin vas, that the homicide \i ring been committe 1 under th teat of violent pession, the prisoner if not guilty tff Tnnr ler. A woman has a right to take the life ot a man v. in ittempts to ravish her. Mr Broivne here lays down th aw at great length in relation to the above named right it ffpanAfl lit I I, tltt* 1)1,. ovoifimr Al nmrnnii t lexual intercourse it an indictable offence ; and M.' 3rowi?k caid he wish'd it was the same in this coui ry. Agninp if after the rape, Sarah Merce v ind taken the life of Hutchinson Heherton, she would no aave t een guilty of murder, hut of manslaughter, and M loubt, said he, if any Court or Jury had even done that:., Again, suppose, immediately after the rape, that her it ;f her, or brother, had come into the room, and taken th life ol Heberton. In that case it would not have been mm ler, but manslaughter. In England, adultery is not ai indictable otfence. In Pennsylvania, it is?and it is als' the same in New Jersey. Here Mr. Browne introduce' what appeared to the audience to be a letter, su perscribed, but which in reality had some newspape extracts cut out and pasted on the inside ot the lettrrj i was the report of a trial in Belgium, thu result of whirl was according to his view of the case. Blackstone sayt that the Roman law justified homicide when it was con mitted in defence of chastity, either by one's self or he 8 relation. The last great point ot the defence is? snppo that young Mercer had taken away the life of Hebertr . in a sudden transport of passion, as soon as he had hear of the rape, would he have been guilty of murder? N<' Here numerous authorities were adduced. It is now 4 o'clock, and I must send the express. M4 Browne is still speaking. Fire at Norfolk.?A fire occurred at NorfoH on Sunday night last.
