Also, the very latest news ot the day. Imvortant Political Movements ?The nomination of Mr. Van Turin, by the Legislature, has stirred up the elements territily in this city. If the present state of feeling between the friends of Van Turen on one side, and 'hose of Calhoun, Cass and Tyler, on the other,goes on us it is going now, it is probably tee shall haw the spectacle oj two it/moratic national rcmrcyiticins?one to meet in November next-the other in May, 1844. A |>ortion of the Young Men's Committee have declared, in effect, nc.iinst the November convention. The friends of Mr. Van Turen are preparing to sustain the legislature, nud declare that they will hold a Muss Meeting in Tammany Hall very soon, to reecho their sentiments. On the other hand, the triev.ds of Cnfhoun fc Co. are preparing to oppose such a movement. A collision may be a final division of the democratic party, and two national conventions?in which case Henry Clay's chances will brighten up amazingly. Something very important will soon take place, before the 12th of May, in thi.- city, when the spoils will be divided. We shall explain the whole ground next week. The next Presidency depends on the action of this city CONTROVERSY IN THE >O.MERS CASE.? 1 tie newspaper discussion in relation to the decision oi the Court Martial in the case of Commander McKenrie, appears to he t.ikinp a very remarkable course.? Indeed, the violence, intemperate abuse, and utter disregard of common decency exhibited by the Courier and Enquirer and many other papers, and the fury of their partizanship in this case, from the beginning, have bean most disgusting. But it would now appear, that instead of cooling down into sobriety and decency, as would reasonably be expected, they are becoming still more furious and Abusive. Our announeeinent of the vote of tlie members of the Court Martini, elicited a variety of maniacal yells and opposition from the Courier ? Our statement, that the vote was seven lor conviction and five for acquittal, was denounced as utterly false. But it appears that all can be ascertained now without any difficulty. The members are at liberty to reveal the general result of their deliberations. But that the fact was as we stated, we have no doubt. Indeed, it was easy beforehand to form a pretty accurate idea of how tho vote would be.? Th? private conversations of the members?their conduct on the trial?a variety of means were within the reach of those desirous of ascertaining the fact. The New IVorld of this week administers a very appropriate and temperate rebuke to the conductor oi the Courier. Wm a bp VcKr*nr? Of all the paper* which have brawled and bragged in defence of the naval Jack Ketch, none have been hi outtageous as the Courier and Knquirer. During the whole progress of the proceeding!, Mr. Wetib, the eJilor. has vindicated moil fully his right to the title of a bully. lie has abused and villified, without stint, everybody who dared to differ from him as to the {iropriety of the murder of 8.oncer. Cromwell and Small ; has. with the most unfeeling bitterness, attacked Mr. John C. Spencer, and with im|?otent malice, sneered and scoffed at those sentiments of the paternal nature, which a brutal ludian would have respected. No' content with this sprcias of defence of his friend, this doughty champion of cold-blooded murder has falsified the s-ntence of the la'e Court Martial, and interpola. ted the word " honorable" into a meagre announcement nf n lif-hnie <1 acquittal, first published in the Philadelphia llni'e'l 6tates Gf?7fte Such impudence and falsehood would disgrace Monroe Edwards ; and the lesi Mr. Webh has to any in future of ?he editor of the Herald, the better for the few rags of reputn'ion which still hang about him. and veracity fo'the" editor of the Courier and Enquirer ? If this be not enough to show the latter our opinion of him, we will make onrselves clearer on a very early occasion. But perhaps the most extraordinary statement which has yet been made in delence of Commander McKenzte, ia the following, which appeared in the Philadelphia Gazette ot Thursday last: ? "Almest every?we might say,that with but oneortwo exceptions, every? journal of character in the land has sustained him. and more especially those who arc most familiar, from their location, vlth I tie central worlhletmeu of the rammon tail art who fill our national and mercantila marine Here is a sweeping charge of the most decided character. The whole body of our seamen arc denounced as worthless reprobates, for whom we sup;<ose the Gazelle thinks hanging is quite too good a late ' But this is only in keeping with the general character of the defence of McKenzie in the public prints. It is perfectly evident that this controversy cannot be terminated until all the facts relative to the finding of the Court Martial have been distinctly ascertained, and communicated to the public. Public opinion, and a due regard to justice, require this to be done?and the sooner it be done the better for Com. McKenzie. His friends should at once get these lacts (uiblished. As for ourselves, we know what they are. We have every reason to believe that we know exactly how the members stood?who voted for acquittal and who for conviction. But we wish the friends of McKenzie to present the public with a proper statement of the case. They say that they know our statement was incorrect. How have they made that discovery, if, as they alletre, no one but the members and the Secretary of the Navy were acquainted with the facts'? Let, then, the whole facts be stated, and so put an end to this disagreeable controversy. We do not express any dissatisfaction with the verdict. We have no ill-will to McKenzie. We always pitied the poor nun, and regretted, with the greatest sincerity, the melancholy circumstances which brought such unlortunate results to him, to all immediately concerned, and to the country. AnoMiNAiiut condition op THE ?The mud aud dust, which seem to be the ( res'd'n(t genii over m<* ?rrfre or mis ciry, ar" a penect outrasre upon all municipal decency. Here has this city contracted a deht of nearly $13,000,'WO, to introduce an abundance of pure and wholesome water. The water has been introduced, and it is now running to waste in the gutters, in numberless small rivers all round the cily. and yet not a drop of it is sprinkled upon the streets where the sun has dried all the mud into dust. In Broadway, lor instance, the least breath of wind sets all the dust in motion, and the whole street instantly becomes unfit to be trnvrlled. Yesterday the sun shown out brightly, anil our citizens, ladies and gentlemen, who have been pent up during the long winter, were anxious to avail themselves of a refreshing walk in that lavorite promenade ; but the street was quite impassable from the dust, and not a sprinkle of water to lay it. It would seem as if the street contractors tup;<osed thry had been employed to keep the city in a constant state ol either mud or dust. We ask again who are the bondsmen of these contractors, who have agreed to see that their wmk is well and faithfully done I (Ian Alderman Carman of the 12th ward tell us ? i i ji<i 11> aj i ai i^<.?w imav ihuuvi in uill city, the vote polled wan one to every seven of the p-vni iiion In Michigan, in 184<), when the whig* carried that State by 1800 majority, the vote wat on* to fiie uf the population.

EXTRAORIUNAKY OtmUQEb IN SAVANNAM.~The moat extraordinary and atrocious outrages we ever remember to have heard of, in a civilized country, hare recently been perpetrated in Savannah. Such a stale of things ought not to be permitted to exist thcie or any where else for a single moment [From tli* Savanr.nh Republican, April 1(1.] Continued Ootkagks in the Savannah Hivkr.? The atrocious augresaions in our river, of "which we have so oltf-n complained, seemed only to have abated for a season On Thursday night, about 8 o'clock, a boat supposed to belong to some sailor boarding house, went down the river, and boarded the British ship Perthshire, lying at Four Mile Point, during the absence of the captain in town. Captain Moran, of the British ship Albion, wasgoing down the river about this time, and while passing the Perthshire, saw a boat under her bows, and thinking that all was not right, went alongside, and hailed the ship three times without getting any replay. Captain Moran, after a few minutes, nailed her the fourth time, and was answered by the mate of the Perthshire, who begged for God's sake to come on board and rescue them, as the carpenter, the steward and himself, were fastened hand and feet, to ring-bolts on deck, and that the pirates bad possession of the ship, and were taking the sailors out. Captain Moran came close along side, and attempted to board, but was prevented by the pirates hauling up the gang ladder, at the same time ordering him off, and using the most offensive language towards hun. He told the men confined to keep up their courage, and he would return directly with assistance. He proceeded at orce to his own vessel, and front thence to the ship Ellen, lying near by, and procured men and fire arms, and immediately went back to the Perthshire. When the pirates saw the boats approaching, they were in the act of leaving the vessel with the sailors and their baggage, but in their hurry, they upset their boat, and were all thrown into the river ; the sailors belonging to the vessel succeeded in getting on board, but the pirates, it is supposed, swam to the snore. Captain Moran, with the assistance which he got from his vess<'l and the Ellen, remained on board. About II o'clock three boats were seen cautiously approaching the vessel again; one was decoyed and came along side, and was told that the officers were all asleep. The persons in the piratical boat told the men on board to get ready with their baggage. One more daring than the others came on board, when he was immediately secured. Those remaining in the boat were armed, and their guns they said were loaded with buck shot, and would shoot the first persons that interfered with them.? Three or four muskets were discharged, and a stone let fall into the boat, with what consequence we do not know. On t"hursday, Capt Bannerman, ot the Br. brig New Zealand.shipped four seamen through a sailor boarding house keeper, by the name of Mon?hon, and on Friday anotherone. On Friday evening, this man informed Captain B. that he would, during that night, take thern all out of his ship.? Capt. B. accordingly made preparations to receive them, and about 3 o'cIock in the morning a number of boats were seen approaching the vessel, but on discovering the preparations, they made off.

The Superintendent, with his assistants, have bean on the spot for the last three days and nights, making every effort to protect the property of inaividualsand of the State from the danger which threatened ; the pros|?ect in the mean while becoming more alarming, until now toe water has made a wide breach in the canal, which there is no means of stopping, and which is carrying every thing before it. The passage made is just below the Tonawanda Dam, between it and the guard lock. In a short time after the breach was made the Railroad bridge and the canal bridge were carried away ; a house standing I on the neck oi land between the canal and river, was alB? carried away. Families living on this land, further down the river, are leaving,seeing no means of preventing the water from carrying it all away.? The dyking on the creek above is all carried away, and ine farms are inundated. So serious a flood 1 * 1 * I ? r ubs uui uui uncu uu uim stream uetore. [From the Rochester Pott, April 18.] Fkesuet in Canada ?We learn from Captain Twohy, of the America, that there has been quite a flood in the streams that empty into Cake Ontario near Toronto.

HollmV mil! datn on Black water was washed away with several bridges. The lumber house of Boyd. Elmond tte Co. was undermined in the rear and tell down, the water carrying away a quantity of goods. The only damage to the canal the Virginian had heard of was the washing away of the tow bridge across Tye River, which could be repaired in a week. [CorTetpotnl*nce of the Herald.] Middi.ktown, April 19, 1843. Fribnd Bennett:? We have a rise of water here to an extent never before known. The oldest inhabitants admit it to exceed in bulk of water, even the great frasbet of 1801, when it measured from common low water mark, 21 feet to the surface ; but then it was clogged up at the straits by ice, and consequently obstructed the current of water. Now the river is entirely free of ice. The watetjhas full scope and now readies within 7 inches ofthe old mark. The country tor miles around, is completely inundated, and to what extent damage may be sustained, is entirely incomprehensible. Bridges are carried away, fences in innumerable numbers are floatiHg rapidly down the river. The lumber in our yards here is topsy turvy, and in the yard of L> Allen fc Son, there is not a solitary pile escaped an U|iset. Your sfamboat storehouses are nearly covered with wa ler, anu are reaiiy in a laecanous situation. pome ol our most experienced men say the freshet has not as yet reached the highest point. The eventual damage will he great. The last mails from Hartford bring intelligence that over three hundred families are unhoused, the water reaching the 2d story of a large number of the houses, and those, as usual, occupied by the poor hard working people, and consequently the least able to combat the double loss ol home and property. Theircase is distressing, and it is to be hoped their calamity may be lightened by the generous aid of the wealthy ol that city. We have had continued rain frotn Sunday evening last to this (Thursday) morning, when the rain ceased and a cold nrisk snow storm set in from the north. Cloaks and overcoats are on the rise. We expect this freshet to continue through the remainder of this month, and as fast as the eflects can be ascertained, you shall have them. Good sleighing a few miles above Springfield. M. A. R.

James Gordon Bennett, Esq.? Dear Sir :? You are probably aware that Elder Knapp has been preaching with the most unexampled success for the last four or five weeks in this nioFt ungodly city. Indeed, his trumpet-voice has failed to reach but few. The thunder of his artillery has not even spared the tympanums of the most aristocratic ex clusi ves in their Shockoe Hill palaces,nor t here finenf r\rHiimrv Put ia onr\F. Several remarks, indicative ot bis principles, were suffered to drop during his first discourses, which drew forth the warning voice of hits brethren in the ministry?remarks which, judrring from indications in the suburbs not to be misunderstood, have not been without their legitimate effect. He had been repeatedly enjoined to confine his exhortations to the laudable purpose ot saving souls, and to let the peculiar institutions of the south alone. He had been frequently told that his remarks on that subject were calculated to counteract the good influence he might otherwise exert were he to display the same zeal in the good cause aforementioned, but all would'ut do ; he continued to harp on that bold statement, that " all men are born free and equal"?"educate your little niggers"?" admit the colored ladies and geounen into your pews," &c. On one occasion he announced that he should preach to the colored population of Richmond and Manchester on a certain evening; but he was forbidden by onr Mayor and City Council. He had made known his intention to remain with us until to-day, but was so offensive on last Thursday evening before a large concourse in the second Baptist chun h, that he was ordered to leave the city in twelve hours. He left the church, went to his lodgings, and I understand had to take hisclothingfrom the wash-tub, pack them up that night in their dripping condition, and " cut stick" in the daybreak train lor the north. 1 suppose the next time he holds forth, he will cry "persecution," and call the Virginians heathens. The consequences ot his visit are insubordination among our negroes; nightly patrols of the streets by an additional body of police, and a nearer approximation to his raajrsty, the devil, by (hose with whom he had intercourse, rather than a nearer walk with God. He is a case, and no mistake. Truly there is " a great deal of putty in this world." James River has overflowed its banks in a most alarming manner. Rumois have reached here of serious injury to the works of the James River and Kanawha Company, which, in their present embarrassed condition, 16 to be regretted very much. Several large mills and bridges have been swept away by the torrent. From the eminences of the city, asfar as the eye can reach, nothing but a vast expanse of water is to be Been. The plantations along the banks are completely inundated, with here and there a house-top alone visible. The wntprs nonpar to be at a stand still at present, after a most rapid rise. It 'ia said to be the greatest freshet since 1792. The Miller fever has just reached us. Several old ladies are talking ol selling their bank stock, and retirigg to more northern latitudes. One young lady has just been sent to the Asylum?a victim to Millerisra, Knappism, rings round the sun, comets with thundering long tails, and other wanders ot this most wonderful age. By the way, we have had incessant rains for the last two weeks; rather unfavorable to a sudden conflagration, but very consoling to an anti-Millerite. Yours, iu a hurry, Saint James. Oiwego. [Correipondence of the Herald.] Rates oj Traveling on different Routes? The Weekly Sun corrected. Friend Bennett In casting my eye over a New York paper, ol April 1st, it fell upon the following paragraph :? " The iteamboate on Lake Cham plain will reduce their fare 28 per cent, at the opening or navigation; thoie on Lakes Ontario and Erie should follow suit?the times demand it." The writer of the above paragraph must have written from ignorance or been imposed upon by some person^interested on Lake Champlain, where, in a distance of 140 miles, the charge tor passage '8, and has been, five dollars. On Lake Ontario from Oswego to Lewiston and Niagara Falls, a distance of 157 miles, the charge for passage last season was but three dollars, meals included. The charge last season from Syracuse to BufTalo, via Oswego and Niagara Falls, was but four dollars, when at the same time the very liberal Railroad Company charged seven. On Lake Erie and the upper lakes, sav from Bui falo to Detroit, a distance of 320 miles, the price of passage is but six dollars, and from Buffalo to Chicago, a distance of about 1100 miles, eighteen dollars, meals included. Yours truly, J.V. C. Scene at the Chatham Theatre ?Quite a scene occurred at this fashionable place of amusement on Thursday night during the representation of " The Omnibus," which agreeably diversified the performance, and made that laughable farce more amusing than usual. The farce had been set down on the bills since Saturday last, but Mr. Harrison, who was to take the part of Mr. Ledger, neglected to attend at any of the rehearsals, until Thursday, when he declared that ha was perfectly prepared to appear and perform his part. This assurance was not, however, borne out by the facts, and the performance had been little more than commenced when Mr. Harrison's inadequacy was apparent.? The newsboys testified their displeasure with characteristic vehemence, and at last Mr. Harrison made his appearance, and made a speech, declaring that he had not had time for preparation, and must decline proceeding. This was received with various and not very complimentary demonstrations en the part of the audience, for they had |Ust got an exciting taste of Mr. Brougham's capital acting as Pat Rooney, which was almost equal to Power.? Mr. Harrison had no sooner retired than Mr Stevens, the stage manager, familiarly known to the newsboys'as " Old Blueskin," made his appearance, and delivered one of those short pithy speeches, in which he is almost unrivalled, and informed the audience thatMr. Harrison had fallen into a slight error in his statement, that he had had abundance of opportunities of becoming perfect in his part, and had suddenly, to the great sHrp-ise ol the other persons in the caste, declared his inability to go on Mr Stevens concluded hy appealing to the generosi ty and forbearance o| the audience in such unpleasant circumstances, and retired amid great applause. The curtain then fell, and shortly afterwards Mr. and Mrs- Brougham appeared in the " Married Rake," and soon restored the good humor ol the house by their admirable and spirited acting. The speeches excited great interest, and we have no doubt that il such little episodes were got up occasionally, the theatres would be crowded. Lost in thk Fon.?The mate and four ol the crew ol the ship Inez, Long, of Newburyport, from Liverpool for Boston, landed in a boat, at the south side of Nantucket Island on Monday, the 17th inst. They state that on Sunday morning, at about eight o'clock, they left the ship at anchor in five tathoms of water, probably among the shoals off the S. E. side of the Island, for the purpose of sounding, in order to find a passage out into deep water. The fog was very thick at the time they anchored.

Simeon Drey/MM?Tltis was sn action on a promissory note for $811. The circumstances are shortly these : the defendant who is oao of the children of Israel, and an extensive dealer in watches anil their movements, purchase.! fi om the plaintiff, who ore importers, in the latter end of last July, a large quaiitii y of those articles. Altar Mr. Dreylous had the goods in his possession a month, he sent to the plaintiff's store his note payable six months after date to the order of plaintiff for the above sum On the day tha note became due, a person called at plaintiff's counting house, and stated that Mr. Prey Ions was about to make nn arrangement of his affairs with his creditors.that he could not pay the note, but would send the piaintiffiu a few days bis balance sheet by which they would see the state of his affairs, and that he, defendant, would take care that honorable mention should be made of the plaintiff's name therein. The plaintiff. however, who had himself to take up the note, not thinking Mr. Dreyfous' balance sheet, even though his, the plaintiff's, name might be honorably mentioned in it, satisfactory paymeut for the promissory note, instructed his attorney to bring the present action. The detence set up was a I reach ot warranty and fraud in the sale of the articles. Mr. Dreyfous having through the medium ol Mr. Herschel's telescope, discovered that the movements were rusty. Upon this state of tacts it was contended on his behalf that this was a rusty transaction, and that defendant ought not in equity and good conscience be called upon to pay for rusty watches; hut the jury thought otherwise, and gave a verdict to plaintiff lor the full amount claimed. The defendant's attorney obtained an order for time to make up a bill of exceptions, and the case will go up to the Supreme Court. Messrs Cook and Cierk conducted the plaintiff's case, and Messrs. Chace and Sandford appeared far the defendant. Clerk vs. laomie and Healh.?This was an action of trespass for taking and carrying away the property of the plaintiff. The damages were laid at $1,000.

On being asked what hn had to say why sentence should not be passed upon him, he replied " I am not guilty?the man who swore against me swore to a positive untruth, and I have got a paper in my pocket to snow that he has been in the State prison." Hr.coRDca.?The evidence against you was conclusive, and there was nothing presented to us to show that the witness who appeared against you had been in State pri son. The Court, therefore, sentence you to imprisonment in the State prison for five years. Chauncey C Lsrkiiv was next called, and replied that " he had nothing ?o say,but if the Court in their sentence could extend any mercy they would not ergret it." Recorder.?too have been convicted of forgery in signing the assumed name of Lieut. Wilkes to a check, and the evidence against you was such that the Court feel bound to sentence you to State prison for four years. James V. Hurley, convicted of obtaining money under false pretences from Joseph O-Warner.the former being one of the notorious keepers of Intelligence Offices of a peculiar character in this city, was called and tha Court sentenced him to a fine of f.30 and thirty days imprisonment in the City prison, alleging at the same time that they wet e determined to put an end to such practices. Owen Prkscott, a Sound Pilot, was next called for sentence for violating the Pilot Laws, by piloting two vessels through Hurfgate, contrary to tne statute in such cases m^de and provided. Recorder?It becomes the duty of the Court to impose sentence in your case, aPhongh in so doing they consider that you ere entirely competent, and wonder why you have not received an appointment as a Hurl P.IXPIIaI Tha Dlllnnn, c -LI.. Tar a* regards your character: there was nothing against it, but the reverse was shown by the witnesses produced. Notwithstanding this, the Conrt are compelled by the law of the land to inflict a penalty in all cases of violation of the Pilot Laws whora they are fully proved ; and, therefore, they impose a penalty of $60 upon you tor the offence of which you stand convicted. rsicscoTT?May it please the Court?piloting through the Sound has been a business for twenty 3 ears, long before the pilots of Hurl Oate ever received an appointment: end in addition to this I understoo 1 from the Court, and I believe it was so understood by the Jury, that nothing but a nominal flne would lie imposed. .It:bob?I was one of the j urors in favor of acquittal of Mr. Prescott, and should have adhered to my position had I not supposed that a mere nominal line would have been imposed. TheRf.cordfr?ThcCautt would merely state that the statute of the State authorized them to impose a penalty of imprisonment for six months, but thvy had thus meliorated it on account of the excellent character of the accused. Granh Larceny.?A black fellow named Oeorge Nichols was tried for entering the unoccupied house ol Mr. Morris,of Morrisiana, Lewis County, and stealing a clock and several other articles, which were found in his possession. The Jury found him guilty, and the Court sentenced him to the State Prison lor three years. Constructive Grand Larcent?Isaac Adams alias John M. Shaw, was tried for obtaining the sum ol $200 from Horatio N. Otis, under circumstancas that evinced a knavish disposition, end for which the jury found him guilty, but at the interposition of his counsel, his se ntence WW pos'poned until next term, in order to allow time to prepare exceptions !o the law as charged by the Court. The particulars of the case were published last week, when 'he case was called upandthe indictment quashed for informality in the spelling of " Horatio" by the addition of an " n" to the name- Adams advertised In the Sun. The Grand Jury came into Court and made the following presentment:?
