Her news will be but eleven days later. It will, however, make up in interest and importance what it loses in time.? We shall issue an Extra Herald immediately after our pa|>ers arrive?say early this morning hf next Presidency?Nomination of Martin Van Buren toy the Stale of Sew Yorfa. We give to-day some very important proceedings n relation to the next presidency, which took place in Albany on Monday night. The democratic members ot the New York Legislature have, in fleet, unanimously nominated Martin Van Buren as the candidate ,for the neri presidency? and recommended the month of November this year for holding a national convention in Baltimore, to confirm their recommendation, and decide on a Vice President. The same time for holding such a convention has been designated by the " democracie" of the States of Virginia, Tennessee, and Missouri, aad we have every reason to believe it will be concurred in by Pennsylvania and Ohio. The only ^tate, thus far, that prefers a later day, is that of South Carolina. This nomination, or recommendation of Mr. Van Buren, is concurred in by the whole democratic members of the Legislature?the two sections of the party, called the " old hunkers" on the one side, and the " young democracie" on the other, both concurring in the same man?the same plan of action?the same policy?and the same day. An immense mass meeting is also to be held in a few days in Tammany Hall, to respond to the action^of the Legislature, and the like, no doubt, will take place throughout the State? The policy and measures developed by these pro eeedmgs, are also highly interesting and important. An uncompromising opposition is held forth to a national bank ot any kind?to an exchequer of any kind?ta any assumption of State debts?to the division of the land revenues? and in tact, to the whole policy of Mr. Ciay and the whigs, as well as to that of Mr. Tyler and the " guard." The tariff in any shape is not alluded to, but this is policy. We understand that Silas Wright was the master spirit wno managed the whole operation?prepared the address?and set the whole machinery in motion. He has certainly evinced great skill and talent. We consider this movement of the Legislature of New York, one of the most important that has taken place since the nomination of General Harrison?in fact it demolishes,at once and forever,every chance of Mr. Tyler?seta aside, for the present, the hopes of Mr Calhoun, and all others, and reduces tl e position of the two great parties to Mr. Van Buren on one side, and Mr. Clay on the other. The utter insignificance ot Captaiii Tyler among the " democracy" of this Slate, is now seen at full length. Herealter he can remove and appoint, once a week, in every office uuder his control?and it will only meet the con'empt and (eersof both parties. Mr Calhoun has astrong hold among the democracy, but it will not ripen fully till 1848 The Presidential question inav now be said to open thus:? Democratic. Whio. MAR) IN VAN BUREN. HENRY CLAY.

Democratic eglslatlve Caucus, The democratic members of the two houses, assembled at 9 o'clock Monday evening, in the Assembly Chamber, Albany. Mr Hunter, ot the Senate, called to order, and on his motion, Lieut Governor Dickinson was called to the chair, and On motion of Mr. Mitchell of the Senate, and Mr. Hulburd ot the House, Mr Ely of the Senate, ami Mr Sanford of the Assembly, were appointed Secretaries. Tue Likot Governor, on t iking the chair, briefly and pertinently addressed the meeting. Mr. Hunter, of the r-enate, from the joint committee appointed to prepare an address and resolutions, submitted an address, which was read by Mr. Elv. The reading of the address having been concluded, Mr. Hulburd submitted^ the following resolutions :? | Resolved, That weareintavor of a National Conren. tion, lor the nomination of candidates for President and Vice President, to be held at Baltimoie on the 4th Monday of November, 1843, as recommeode 1 by the democratic party of the States ,f Tennessee, Missouri and Virginia. Resolved, That it ia reoomtnenil. d to the Republican Klee'ors in several coun'ies of this 8t?tc, to appoint a numbered delegates correiponding with the number of member* of Assembly, to a Stare convention to be Held at on the day ot S-pember, 1s43. with autnority to choose delegate* to a National Convention, or to de termirve the manner in which they *hall be chosen, and for transacting such other business in relation to the Presidential question as to the convention may stem proper.

Although overborne in the contest of 1S4(?, by a temporary concentration of discordant interests, he has maintained with unflinching firmness those cardinal principles of democratic | faith which lie a? the very foundations of our free institu tions. and to which he has been devoted during his whole life, and that while we will support with good faith and cordiality, the person who may be nominated for President ol the U. 8 , by the Republican National Convention we feel it a duty to express our conviction that Martin Van Buren is the choice of the Democracy of the State|of New York. Resolved, That the course pursued by Governor Bouck, justifies the confidence reposed is h m tiy his constituents; and that the unfounded ass ults made U|>on him in regard to his offi ial conduct as Canal Commissioner, have not in the slightest degree unpaired oar confidence in the purity ol his character as a man, or in the integrity f his conduct as a public ottcer.

The packet ship Mediator arrived yesterday from London and Portsmouth. She sailed from the latter place on the 25th ult. She brings the opening of an important debate in the British Parliament on the Treaty of Washington, called by the whigs in England the "Ashburton Capitulation " This debate will be read with the greatest interest bv everv one. No other nt-wa of consequence. Hocse of Lords, April 11.?The Dyke of Wellington, in answer to Lord Beaumont, explained, that it w?is the intention of Government it) introduce a measure to reduce the duties on wheat imported Irotr. Canada Notice had been given last session that such a bill would be brought forward so soon as the Colonial Legislature had regulated the corn trade between Canada and the United States; and when the act lor that purpose had received the royal assent, the alteration then contemplated would be proposed. House of Commoxi, March 3*2.?Lord Pa!.mkrsto'<i rose. Hi* motion was for copies of all communications between the British and American Governments, and between the British Government and Lord Ashburton, with reference to the treaty ot Washington and the negotiations which led to it. He hoped that as Sir Robert Peel had thought it right to produce the correspondence between the late Government and its Pl?ni|>otentiary, he would think it equally fitting to produce the cornspondenct. which had taken place since the accession of the present Ministry. He knew that in expressing his dissatistaction at the treaty, and ot the hhskilfulness with which it had been conducted, he should be accused of endeavoring to disturb our peaceful relations. As he had often before disregarded such a charge, he sheuhl disregard it now; he hoped he had proved, in his administration of the Foreign Department, his sincere attachment to the principles of peace ; and he felt the especial obligation of those principles between blood relations, like England and America; but still, 9S they were independent communities, the rules of justice were not to be sacrificed tar the sake of either. The treaty between them in 1783, though it professed the purpose ol obviating all question about boundary, had been the fertile source of disputes Much discussion took place between the commissioners of the two countries respecting the line of highlands intended by the treaty, ana respecting the spot which the treaty referred to as that where the 45th paral1-1 nf Ijllln.l* Ik- CI. 1 Tl latter point, us a icientific on'', would seem incapable of dispute , but the American men o science resorted to ge. ocentric instead of astronomical measurment. This, and two other questions connected with the lioundary, were referred to .he King nl the Netherlands, who made his award in favor of England upon the made of measurment hut recommended that as America had laid out large sums upon a point of land whereof that mode of measurineHt would deprive her, the English should allow such a lioundary line as would give her that |>oint; and as be held that neither the line claimed by Britain, nor that claimed by America, coincided exactly with that which the treaty intended, he counselled a compromise under the udoption of a third line, which he then indicated. The American Minister of that day, contending that thia was not an award, but a mere recommendation, declined to he bound by it. The English government equally disliked the proposed settlement, hut thought itsell precluded lrom objecting to it by good lcith, and b the consideration that there was no great chancr of mending the position of af. fairs by a second arbitration, even if America would agree to such a mode of settlement. America, however, having rejected the award, and England being thus also freed trom it, a new investigation of the dispute ! highlands was proposed;1 y America, with a view, however, as it should seem, merely to supply a deficiency in one part of her own case, where thedescrije tion did not tally with the actual groand. To this one sided proposal the British Government did not agree. new commission was then suggested by America, to consist ol three scientific men ; hut with this suggestion she coupled two inadmissible conditions?the recognition of Mitchell's map as aconc!u-ivu authority; and the addition of commissioner-- lrom Maine. The ground was then again examined, and a repoit was made to tha British Government by skilful and diligent persons, whose evidence furnished ample proof for the British.and against the American, claim ; and as the American Government was ;>osseated ot a certain red-line map, also substantiating the Biitith line to be that intended by the treaty?which map. though that government had not had the candor to produce it. gave tnem full information for their own guidance?there was at length fair ground to expeet that the truth would be arrived at and agreed ou in negotiation.? That negotiation might have been carried on through the American Miniater in Lon Ion, or through the British Minister at W'shington, or through a special mission.? The last mode had these inconveniancea?that it attracted much public observation .and occasioned so much greater disappointment in case of failure ; and that aspecialminister hail naturally a feeliag that he waa bound to get something arranged, and must not come hick empty-handed.? At all events, however, such a minister ought te be par u^uini ? ?rn sriniDii. nunrvri uuiiuub IQ HVUIU Mil disrespect to Lord Ashburton, he mu?t say that in a case like this the government ought to have aent a man who would he heart an 1 toul in the British cauae, and who would have no leaning to the epponeut party. But Lard AiHacaTox waa much connected w ith America, though he had princely possessions in England That balanced feeling might have well fitted him for a mediator, but not for an Ambassador. Home practice, too?some technical experience of diplomacy ? was i aaential in the business of negociation; if such skill, united with the most conciliatory manners, were the combination required. Sir C. Yaughan might have been fitlv selected; if a title of peerage were also required, Lord Hey* teshury might well hav* been appointed. When a Minister was sent to a foreign Sta'e thus specially, he was mori-over expe-ted to speak first; to announce what it was that he had come 10 far to do. The first move, indeed,was not necessarily a disadvantage in diplomacy any more than at chess, but if made unskilfully, it subjected the mover to be check mateit.as Lord Ashburton had been.? It was not expedient to begin by an ultimatum; that wna an imperious way of treating your opi>onent; you should ask something more than youmeant to take that he might have the credit with his own country of having effected ome reduction in your terms. But Lord Ashburton, having stated an ultimatum, and finding Mr. Webster would not let him have it, waa content to say, if I can't have it, 1 suppose 1 shan't have it, and so I must give it up. Surely if a Minister began with an ultimatum he ought to adhare to it. Lord Falmerston then followed the negociation through its marches and countermarches, censuring (Lord Ashburton for not ex- ] hibiting the same firmness which bad been shown by Mr Wetister. Lord Ashburton, having taken the first step, ought to have put the negociation on the basis that England had a right to all the had asked -. instead of which he allowed Mr Webster to put it on the basis that Ame rica had a right to all she had asked If you were about to compromise a lawsuit,the moie clearly you can Id satisfy your adversary that you hr-1 the law on your side, and that you abstained from litigation only to avoid needless cosrs, me neiter wonia oe tur n m? vnicn mat adversary would concede to you. Lord I' lmer?ton here enumerated some equivalent!, commercial end territorial, which he thought it would have been proper for Lord Ashburton to have reiervrd in dealing with Mr Webster. But instead of keeping those equivalents to use when they shonld be wanted, he gave them all spontaneously at the outlet, as if the weight of them were an encumh-ance to him. As he poured them out of his bag, Mr. Webster picked them all up, gratis; and when the time cume for buying eft the American demand of territory to the north of the St. John's, Lord Ashburton had nothing left to make his bargain with It might have been right to make the concessions which were made respecting the navigation of the Ht John's, and the question ot the ' onnecticut: but, than, these things should not all have hsen granted without some return lor them. House's |>oint, too, had been conceded?a military station of great importance; and he apprehended that Ministers would shortly ke obliged to ask from Parliament the means of eresting a fortification for the purpose of keeping tha American fastness there in check. Then there was a part of the boundary which was made moveable , aeven miles higher in one event, iev?? miles lower in another, by s sliding scale which he sincerely hoped rni ght work better in our geographical relations with America than in our commercial ones He now came to the article respecting the discouragement of the slave trade, in which object, as in others, aince the accession of the present Ministry, this country had made grtat stride* ?backw ird The right of search was indispensable, arid wherever thai right was refused, you might be sure that ther? was some slave trailing uite-est behind. Here Lord Palmerston introduced an episode, containing the history ui iiih imr biiropean tieatiea on thin subject, and the nonratiflcation of the tieoty with France, wlnoh negation he designated an the firat backward step 1 lie ?econd ickwardatop wau the Washington treaty, lor ita imme. diate i fleet wn to encourage France in refuting her content to the principle ot maritime v it It At ion?a reftlMl ownig mainly to General c ats, the American Minister at I'iri".

But Lord Ashburton seem?d not to understand this principle ot law, for ho had a promised that no officious interference ihould taka place tor the future, beyond what was necessary far the eaecu [ tion ol the municipal law ; by which promise he meant r cither to give to Mr. Wi bstcr the desired guarantee, or t to amuse him by a (juibble. The neurons were human 1 boinfi, and just as much entitled to hospitality in a Bri- < tish port, as the |m*isoms who had dealt in them. Altar I aathaae dealera were concerned, the case was tho same < it their piaperiy had foundered at lea, only with thi? satisfactory difference, that the lives 01 this human cargo were preserved.

I-ICII-U I ? ..w- ii... ..! > ?"<n?iivr ..rril lUIIIUISi! I WUJ , 1 at oae of the tan-well dinners given to Lord Aahburtoii, i the Americans, whucheered him in tokrnoftbair triumph over his diplomacy, warned him to remember that there I were other unsettled questions with England, ? hirh, if harmouy was to he maintained, mint he arranged in the , tame spirit in whirh the boundary had been adjusted. Again, since that time an attempt had been 1 made in America to introduce a bill on the analo- J gous question of the Oregon, which bill, if it 1 had been passed, would have amounted to a de- > claration of war. Nor could he refrain from oh- , serving upon Lord Aahburtou's allusion, at one of those dinners, to Boston as the cradle of liberty. He believed that England, in the war against American indepen denre, had been as unjustifiable as she was unsuccessful; and this might be a good argument for an Englishman 1 warning his own Countrymen against the repetition of j such errors; but h? did not think that the injustice and I the weakness of England were fit subject* of allusion I for an English Minister standing among the sons of these | men who had brought his 'ountry to defeat and discredit. | There spoke the American citizen, rather than the Bri- ( tish Ambassador He sincerely hoped he might he mistaken in his apprehension that the good-will between the two countries would be hut shortlived; and conclu. ' ded by moving forthe papers. 1 Mir Kobkrt Phl inquired with indignation how the l noble Lord, a member of a government which, for ten years, had been unable to settle this great question, could i reconcile it to himself to make a motiou like this?era- i ding the real question, which was whether Lord AAbtU* J ton deserved to he censured, and substituting u requisition | for papers which he ha 1 already been informed must be refu-ed upon grounds wholly independent of the merits of Lord A?hhurton. The manly course would have been ' to move a censure on Lord Ashhurton, which would have < been to move a censure on Lord Ashhurton, which woul.t have enabled the government to substitute au amendment, affirming Lord Ashhurton'* right to the approba- , non 01 nin country. Lord raimerston bad declaimed j against the treaty with reference to the slave trade ; now, i America had been induced to agree in thi* treaty to the right of viiitation en the coast of Africa ; which, so far 1 from being a retrograde step on'he subject of the slave 1 trade, was a step in direct advance, and one which Lord I Palmerston, in his ten years' administration of the Foreign i office, had never baen able to accomplish. The French ( government had undoubtedly refused to ratify the treaty ; , but was that owing, ns Lord Palmerston had alleged, f to General Cass 1 No, but to the noble lord him- i self, whose Syrian policy bad incensed the French against England. Lord Ashburton wns now attacked 1 for having promised to prevent officious interference with ' the slave trade ; but this had reference only to t he pre- ' vention of unjustifiable attempts upon slave prop-rty on ] coasts of countries not subject to the British municipal ( law. On the subject of the slaves imported in the Cre. j ole, Lord Ashburton had stated, broadl} and decidedly, { the principles of general law hail affirmed the right of the slaves to their liberty, and had denied the claim of , the owners to compensation. It was said that th> Oregon question remained unsettled. No doubt Lord Ashburton f Lad not settled every question; and some allowance must I be made for the circumstances of a Government like i that of America, open to so many popular influences; but s it he had not settled every question, he had settled that one which, for so many years, had been the main cause of bitterness and irritation among the Americans against j England, the question of the Maine boundary. In 60 , years you had not only made no progress in ascertaining the limits assigned by the treaty ol 1783; but you had 1 seen in each succeeding twelve montu the augry feeling of the United States becoming more and more exacerbated. I After the United States had declined to accapt the decision t of the King of tha Netherlands, Lord l'almerston for ) three successive years went on pressing those states to j agree to that award, which would have advanced the ( American boundary to the crest of the very hills over- < looking the St. Lawrence. For those three years he han taken no military opinions upon this boundary, and ' now he came forward with a motion condemning this ' adjustment as dangerous to the British frontier Lord Asbburton.it was said, had no technical skill in ] diplomacy; to be sure, he was not used to frame 1 protocols, but compare what he had done with the ( act* af the late Ministers in theirten years ofpower,when r they, iruided by the master-mind of the noble lord, had the full opportunity of employing Sir C. Vaughan?yes, and Lord Heytesburv too, a? they had not suffered him to go and govern India. In 1838 they had proposed to divide J the disputed territory; that was the principle which they > then cai'l was the most simple and just; and that was the s very principle on which Lord Ashburton had acted now. tl That ntTer not having been accepted, the noble lord tried p to work out the question by means of an exploratory commission; there were projets and contre-projets; but the at- r tempt had no success; and in 1*41, just as he was quitting office, he wrote a despatch to Ml. Fox, full of disagreements, dissents, and refusals, but proposing a new com mission of three scientific men. one to be recommended by Prussia, one by Sardinia, and one by Saxonv; to w hich Mr Fox answered, "Whatever you do, don't have profes. sors; settle it by three kings if you can't trust one; but no philosophers." And Mr. Featherstonhaugh, the man of science, and consulted by (he noble lord himself, aaya,? "Such a commission may occupy ten years, and at last, perhaps you may have a decision against you." Mr. Webster came into office ; when he had bad time to look into the papers, he intimated his< willingness to settle the matter by a compromise, and was it not incumbent on the British Government to take that offer without delay? There was no longer time to spare: for the great tide of population, that tide which knows no ebb, goes pressing, pressing on, and that territory which is disputable to-day becomes in five years occupied by msnts whom you cannot displace. He then reail passages from various despatches of Lord Svdenham and other Govern, ors, showing the daily progress of excitement in Maine, the district immediately bordering on the debateable land. Sir W. Colebrooke had written in terms especially urging the necessity of an arrangement which should conciliate, and speedily, the good dsipositions of the United States? It thus became the duty of the British government to provide for such a conciliation. Lord Ashburton had been elected as the fittest man, from his knowledge, his thill, ty, and his sharacter, for this difficult service, which no. thing hut a desire to serve his country would have induced him to accept; and tha government who had pressed that service upon him, ami who, hut for his own pre ference for retirement, would have gladly included him in its cabinet, now claimed the full responsibility which belonged to an entire np-mbation of the adjustment he had made; hut, if Lord A- had taken any basis except that oi the Dutch award, his mission would have been utterly nugatory. The Government had consulted all the most competent military authorities?Sir H. Douglas, Sir J. Kempt, Lord Beaton, Sir G. Murray, and they had the aid oi ion i/UKC ui euuigxon* i ur i/uau Hw?ru ^ivr ?wui r S.S-OOths to America, ami -25 to England; the Ashhurton 3 adjustment was less advantage oe* only by 'his Slight difference, that it gave 3<S OOths to America and 24 to England. .Meanwhile America had senators who thought the treaty as discreditable and disadvantageous to her as the noble lord thought it to England But the general leeling in America was favorable to it; and he begged the house ; to consider that r.o arrangement conld have been permanent which had not been generally acceptable to the United States. The object was 'not mere a<\ju*tm?n?, nut conciliation and s itisfaetlon. To this countrv, posseasing the vast extent of territory now belonging to her, a few thousands, nay, a few millions of acres, were nothing in comparison ot friendship with America. Not that he would have made any concession of a dishonorable kind ; such concessions only en couraged further demanJs. But now without dishonor, England had secured an adjustment satisfactory even to the paople of the provinces in the neighborhood of the disputed territory. Mr. Webster had been attacked for r not disclosing a red-line map in his possession, which was supposed to establish the English claim of boundary. He knew not whv Mr. Webster, in an affair of diplomacy should be assailed for not revealing to his antagonist the weak points of his own case. But maps, after all, were I little to be reliad on as evidence in matters of this description. Two contemporary maps, published in England, one of them by Faden. the King's geographer, gavethe line exactly as the Americans claimed it. And so did | Mitchell's map, on which was marked the American line, of which the noble lord had been in possession ; but which yet, be presumed the noble lord had not commun- | icatad to the government of America : but no line on any such man proved anything for this purpose, unless it could be shown to have been the line adopted by the official negoriators. With respect to the production of these pa|>ers, he should i decidedly object to it, particularly as respected the con udential communications between the Osvemment aud ' Lord Ashhurton. If the noble Lord should press this motion, it could he only with a vi>-w to imply (not di rectlv to pronounce) a censure on Lord Ashhurton ; hut r he trusted the house would not l?nd itsalf to such an ob- 1 jert ; fndeed, this very proceeling was his vindication When a powerful party could hting forward no other ; motion than for papers winch they knew could not he ( granted, Lord Asliburton stood justified and triumphant. Mr. Mjciui.at disclaimed all national animosity and prejudice He was adverse to war in general, and a war with the United States would he little less than a civil one.

CO- Mr. Russell's "Farewell" Concert or Tuesday evening, was attended by a numerout and a highly respectable auditory. He was in gooc voice and sung with much spirit, and the plauditi which his efforts elicited, must have warmed hit breast and convinced him of the estimation it which his professional abilities are held by the New York public. As a parting compliment (and unknown) to the vocalist, Mrs Niblo had procured from Mr. Jamet L. Hewitt, the Vase presented to Mr. Russell ir London, and had it placed upon the instrument With that correct taste which characterises everj thing which emanates from their respectable establishment, it was most beautifully adorned with choice flowers and evergreens. The wreath, of "Ivy Green," that "rare old plant," which the united genius ot Dickens anc the Composer have rendered immortal, was trulj chaste and classical. We must not omit to notice a very agreeable in terlude which occurred after the national song o 'The Genius ol Temperance." A very interesting little girl (who we are informed came with a party from New Jersey) presented a very splendid boquet to the vocalist, with a note attached. It was a request to sing the " Ivy Green"?(? singular co-incidence) und with which Mr. Russell immediately complied. He leaves for Bostor to-day.
