The Recent Astounding Disclosure* in the Private and Public Morals of Newspaper Con duciohs ? We cannot comply with the request of our correspondent, nor descend to any notice ol the recent abominable and bruinl immoralities ol certain persons connected with the newspaper press. We know the community is shocked?we know the community is thunderstruck, but w e cannot stoop to any notice. This much we believe firmly?the half ol these shocking immoralities are not yet developed. Time will disclose every thing?and justice be done to all. In the mean time, we cannot forbear calling the attention of the President of the Uuited States to these awful disclosures, revealing the character of the men and papers that were brought to his support by M M. Noah, a candidate for any office, and now the organ of the post office of New York. Wha1 d>?s Mr. Tyler now think of his friends and adviser* in this latitude. 1 Thess awlul disclosures are only beginning. Political Movements.?There is something peculiarly lascinating in the first gush of joy from the heart gladdened by a singularly fortunate event.? It is like the earliest breath of spring?like the graceful capriole of a noble steed?like the changeful hue that tinges the cheek of blushing sixteen; in which latter simile we use poetical license, and take for granted that blushing has not yet altogether gone out of fashion. With all this bounding elasti city ot feeling Captain Bob Tyler has written an epistle to Ex-Alderman Towle, and in the one em phatic sentence?"We have got dear of Mr Webster at last"?he has given such expression to overflowing joy, as a poet well might envy. A similar fee!ins animates the souls of the Noah groundlings in this city. Major Noah is visiting every nook and corner of the city, hunting up all the old rogues and old democrats?terms ol synonymous import in his vocabulary?that he can get hold of, and soliciting their aid in advancing his claims to the office of Churge d'JfTairts at Constantinople. Alteady he has promised the office of dragoman to a dozen fellows ol all nations, tongues and creeds?Jews, Christians, heathens,'and nothingarians. But surely all this is labor lost. A military or naval man?a gentleman and a Christian ?should be sent to Constan. tinople. Not certainly a chap like Noah, whose character, history, politics, every thing, are totally subversive of all respect, and could only bring disgrace on the nation. Mr. James Kelly is aUo in the field, getting every one by the button, and working night and day to get the appointment of Marshall for this district A meeting under hie auspices was, we understand, got up last night, some where in the third ward, for the purpose of passing resolutions congratulating the President on the removal of the great obstacle to his receiving the embraces of the democratic party. A very lunny meeting, by tht bye, was held in the Second ward the other night. It was Van Buren for one quarter of an hour?Calhoun tor twelve minutes?confusion for an indefinite time?and finally ended in pure Tylerism, and abuse of the Navy Agent in this city We know the name of the gentleman in this ward who is applying for the office nnur l.?M h,. Mr \1nrr inn Edward Curtis i? also all alive. He is very busy brushing up his democratic principles. Whether he has got rags enough.of thatlsort in his bag to cover htm decently, we do not know. But at all events, he makes a capital Collector. John Lorimer Graham is of course exceedingly busy in attending to the health of his democracy. Delicate nursing often does] wonders ior patients, even when in a ticklish condition. Then it is all over. Democraticlprinciples are decidedly on the rise. Every little groggery has its knot of politicians, hard at work, brushing up'their " democratic principles," so that every thing? may be bright, patriotic, and republican, to the back bone. Van Blrkn Movements ?The old men's general committee of Tammany Hall, met last evening, and passed resolutions in lavor ol the recent legislative nomination of Mr Van Buren, and the Novemoer Convention. We learn that the young men's committee will soon meet and do the same thing. Yet it is now generally believed that the State Convention, to meet next September, will declare in favor of the National Convention of May, 1844. Mr. Van Buren begins to feel his oats in Kinderhook?he is waxing veryl strong, and sure of the nomination. It is supposed here that Mr. Calhoun has dished himself by his Indiana letter We'll ee. Webb and the Bonnet Trade.?We perceive that the ' Courier .te Enquirer" continues to throw out aspersions on the grea' rival of Webb in the Amazone bonnet trade, who is no other than John Burton, 92J Bowery. Webb calls honest John a " foreigner," and insinuates that his beautiful bonnets are too cheap and "spurious." Webb no doubt wants to monopolize the bonnet trade entirely, and by putting them up at a high price, confine the use ol the article among the families of the Wall .street financiers. John Burton,92! Bowery,has however, brought up the use of the Amazone and made it accessible to every beautiful girl in the Bowery, who appear to be parti cularly fond of the Amazone bonnet, and who now wear them all over. For this generous and liberal conduct, it is not fair in Webb to abuse the man? slander his name?libel his bonnets, and injure his calling. This world is certainly wide enough for both Webb and Burton to bustle in the bonnet business. And if Webb continues these attacks on Burton's bonnets, we would advise the latter to bring an action of libel against his rival at once. He has a better cause of action against him than Fennimore Cooper ever had. Removals in thk Custom House?We understand that since Mr. Curtis returned from Washington, he has removed fifteen or twenty whig officers in the Custom House, and appointed so many democrats The Wall street press will not say any thing about it, because they are well fed secretly by the printing jobs The "Courier" office, the " Express" office, and several others of that ilk do a large portion of the Custom House printing. This is one of the most capita I jokes in politics that we ever heard of. The way that Captain Tvlcr is duped on all sides isreally excruciating Here ?re tiis nrinrirml ?..,....n.. . i .l. r aMunny irruillg ItlC Very l??p^r? that abuse him and his cabinet like pickpock ts. Steamship Hibeknia probably arrived at Boston yesterday. She was then iully due. We shall rece-ve her newsj this morning and issue an hxtra Herald containing it immediately after its arrival. Viboiwa Election.?Notwithstanding the whig lain, the democrats will have a majority of Con??res?men, State Senators, and delegates. So far as known there have, been eight democrats, two wings, and one Tylente elected to Congress; the democrats have secured a majority of six in the State Senate ; and the whiga have gained seven in the House ol lJelrgntes. They must gain ten more to secure a maturity in that branch of the legislature. Thk Fikst Salmon.?Patunson, corner.of Ann and Nassau streets, npen? this day, with the first fresh salmon, from Kenneb?r Lick your hps, ye gotir ma ads Ttuc New Hoard ok Hrokkks.?There la an old eong which commences with an exhortation more remarkable lor its pith than its elegance, and is supposed to be addressed by a patrol youthful lovers at the domestic hearth, to the respectable seniors, whose presence is not deemed absolutely necessary. It recommends the "old folks" to retire ..u? j... ?f quiriiy IP irif'ir cnnmurr iui -ue khioiuuu *.?? ui^ i night, and hints in a very undisguised rranner, lhat it they do not, a certain personage, who shall be nameless, may enter the heads of the juveniles It would seem that some such sort oi a recommendation was now uddressed to the old board of brokers in this city, by the young brood who have resolved to look alter sucli pickings in Wall street as the presiding deity ol that most productive.of barnyards may cast in their way. The new board ol brokers is indeed a good deal of a curiosity. Its members may so rich as the old onep, but they are more wide awake. They may not have been so fortunate, but they are equally sagacious. They may not havefso much character, but Wall street " is all before them," wherein to manufacture it, and with the genius of the place as their "guide," and their own keen young aptitude for his pupilage, it will go hard with them if they do not soon earn a reputation as unequivocal, a9 distinguished, and as serviceable as that of their venerable seniors. Indeed, they have already furnished highly respectable evidence of their abilities. They have made several happy hits, and given satisfactory assurance of soon making many more.? Never a doubt but they will fniake fortunes, and mar them too, as well as the oldest and most successful of the children of Mammon. It is certainly a very remarkable coincidence that the master spirit of this new movement amongst the money changers, should be the immediate descendant and namesake of that great genius who first set the financial machinery of the Union in motion. It was Alexander Hamilton who first breathed life into the national financial machine ; and now, after a "seven years" revolution in finance, like the "fseven years war" of another day, another Alexander Hamilton comes into the field, and commences a movement in Wall street which promises to produce a train of very important and interesting events. This is at least singular ? We are not, we believe, much addicted to super stition. We gazed on the comet without serious alarm. Signs in the heavens never had great terror for us. But a coincidence such as we have just painted out, is not without great interest in our eyes. It must mean something. Let the wise men interpret it as they may, we do believe that it bodes something. We shall watch, with all the interest which the spectacle naturally excites, the struggle between the old and new boards of brokers. It is lunny to see how the experience of age contends with mettlesome youth?how the practised sinner bears himself in the lists with the neophite?how the cunning o! years struggles with the daring ol the aspirant who has every thing to gain and nothing to lose. Musical.?Mr. Brough, the vocalist, is now staying at the Astor House. This gentleman, so long the favorite of the musical public, and who with Mr. and Mrs. Wood, is so associated with delightful reminiscences of all that's beautiful in the musical world, intends "setting up his tent amongst us." As Mr. Brough has quitted the stage and is now engaged in other pursuits, his Iriends, who are legion, are anxious once more to hear a voice whose tones convey such nleasing associations. We understand Miss Adelaide Kemble, with whom Mr. Brough has been associated in the opera in England, (after Mr. and Mrs. Wood's retirement,) expressed a high opinion of his operatic talents ; and although she has herself set tha example of retirement, regretted his quitting a profession which he!adorned by his acquirements in public and respectability in private life. At the St. George's dinner, Mr. Brough delighted every one by the introduction of some new ballads of thrilling interest, and which have not before been heard here. We understand a party of his friends met at the Astor last evening, to arrange with him to give a concert some time next week. The sooner the better. We insure him the largest attendance of thej season. Where wil| it be given 1?Niblo's, Apollo,{City Hotel,for the Astor 1 Sionor naokl'fgives his grandffarewell concert on Friday evening. This distinguished artist has been sojourning in the country about a year, and has met with the warmest reception and enthusiasm wherever he goes. On the violin he is probably without a rival. We have no doubt his concert will be crowded with the elite of taste and fashion. Theatricals.?A good deal of interest has been excited in the theatrical circles, by the announce ment of the appearance on the Park boards next week, of Mr. Harry P Grattan, a gentleman long and favorably known as a contributer to the London magazines, and a tragedian of great and acknowledged merit. Mr. Grattan has arrived in this city by the Ashburton, with the design of making the tour of the Stales, for the purpose of making himself acquainted with the varied scenery of our country, our institutions, and the state of society in the new world ; and also with the view of playing for a few nights at some of the principal theatres ? In Hamlet, Shylock, and other Shaksperian characters, Mr. Grattan has established in England a very enviable reputation. He is a man of finished education, fine taste, prepossessing personal api?earance, and very considerable professional experience. He will make his debut at the Park in the character of Hamlet, and we have no doubt from the nigh testimonials which he brings, that he will meet that favorable reception which a high order of dramatic talent never fails to comman Park Thkakre?Kiilky and his Elsklkrian Boy.?There was a very full house at the Park last night. One of the chief attractions, i? we may judge from the applause bestowed, was Prof. Kisley and his boy. We call him the Llsslerian boy, because he has a certain inimitably fascinating smile *knd manner, and a peculiar naivete, together with a very high degree of polish in all his movements, which were so |>eculiarto Elssler. A beautiful garland, and a rich bouquet.'of flowers, were thrown to him last evening upon the stage of the Park theatre, and it was worth the price of a ticket to witness the exquisite prettiness with which the little fellow picked them up and acknowledged the honor. The somerset, in which he alights upon his father's feet, is a brilliant performance, and we believe never before attempted in this city. The fr-at of hiB dodging the Guadaloupe earthquake is by no means the most remarkable of his feats. Mr- Hackett's Jack FalstafT was very well received. Little Mrs Hunt, as|Mrs. Page, was spirited and correct. Julia Turnbull danced Cachucha with great grace, and received a full share of well-deserved applause. Mr Hackett appears again to-night. So do Professor Risley and his son. ft?- D. Appkton ic Co. publish this morning The Daughter* o/ Englamt, their position in society, character and responsibilities, by Mrs. Ellis. The publishers have wisely determined to bring out all the works of Mrs Ellis in the same cheap and elee gant form as The Wivet of England, published a few days since. This volume, like all the writings of Mrs. Ellis, abounds in sound practical wisdom, admirably udapted to assist in developing, in the best and most lovely mould, the female mind. The price of this work is only 12fe cents. For sale at this office. Family Library.?We have received No. 5 of the edition of the Family Library which the Harpers are issuing at twenty-five cents per volume. It contains vol. 2 of Lockhart'a Life of the Emperor Napoleon, and has a portrait of Josephine For sale at this office. ?'JS? Mont Awful Murders lu Mew Jersey?Four Persons Butchered?$1300 Reward for the Murderers?First Fruits of the Msroer Trial. Two men, on express, arrived yesterday Irom New Jersey, bringing the horrid news that four persons were butchered in cold blood on Monday night last, at a place called Change-water, in Warren county, N. J , to wit? John B. Parke, John Castner, Maria Cartner, and n child Governor IVnnlnrtnn nrtnrprt th#? lurir-at ,uu>a,/l nllnu'^d by the laws of New Jersey, ior the detection ol the murderer?, namely, $300; and David Parke, and Abraham Castnerhave also offered, in addition, the sum of $1000, making $1300 in all. We have seen a private letter of Governor Pennington to Mayor Morris, in which he communicates the above facts, and asks aid of our city authorities in detecting the murderers. We cut the following from yesterday's American, which, with what we have above stated, makes all the information we now have on the subject, unless it be a flying report that suspicion had fallen upon an Englishman, who had been seen riding about in that neighborhood onjhorseback. POSTSCRIPT. Awrtn. Murders in New Jersey?$1000 Reward for the Murderks?A whole family was murdered, men, women, and children, on Monday last, near Port (Joldi-n, Warren county, New Jersey, with every circumstance of deliberate barbarity. Mr. John B. Parke, an aged man, who lor years has had the mania of converting alt his property into speci*, and the folly of boasting of the amount thus accumulated, lived on his farm?a bachf lor?having in his house his brother-in-law, John Cartner, who worked his farm?his wife and four children?together with a servant woman. YVsterday morning the neighbors were thrown into consternation by hearing that all these persons preceding night, were murdered. On reaching the spot the most dreadful spectacle was presented, garner, who appears to have been decoyed out of the house, was found partially thrown into a limekiln, his head literally beaten to frag ments with a rail, which was picked up close by with all the horrid marks of the use that had been made of it. On entering the house, Mr. Parke was found in his bed dead, with his throat cut from ear to earHis sister, Mrs. Cartner. and the infant at her side; in like manner murdered, and a little son of four or five years old, stabbed in several places?and only not dead. There were two other children, but they slept in a disiant part of the house?unkuown, probably, to the murderers, and roost fortunately, they were not awakened by the deeds of hell perpetrating below, and therefore gave no indication ot their presence, and only knew they were ornhans when going in the morning to recene their mother's accustomed kiss The house was rifled completely?but what amount of plunder was obtained, no one could yet conjecture. The news spread rapidly, the country is raised, and handbills are already circulating in all directions, oflering, in the name of the surviving relatives, $1000 for the arrest and conviction of the murderers. Plunder, undoubtedly, was the motive, aud universal opinion ascribed the horrid deeds to strangers who must have come from a distance. IBAs there must have been two or'three concerned, the hope seems reasonable that a clue will be found and due punishment be awarded to this unparalleled massacre. National Academy of Design.?We continue our criticisms on the exhibition at the Academy. No. 1. Portrait of a Lady?T. B. Read.?A very charming cabinet picture, conceived and executed in the purest spirit of art. We have not the pleasure of an intimate acquaintance with the works of Mr. Read, but judging by this picture, we should think he may compare favorably with the best of his cotemporaries. No. 15. The Fruit Table?A. B. Engstrom ? Mr. Engstrom is a teacher of drawing in Philadelphia, much petted and patronised by the lovers of Dutch glare and tinsel. We fervently hope that he may in future confine the exhibition of his productions to his own meridian. Fruit pieces at the best serve but as displays of labor and mechanical skill? and when lacking in these qualities are worse than contemptible. We have seen far more creditable specimens of art than this adorning (the front of a yankee clock. No. 33. Portrait of a Lady?H. P. Gray, N. A.?A masterly picture?full of nature, and handled with great skill. No. 80. Sunset fro* Sino Sing, looking over Haverstraw Bay?Highlands in the distance?North River? R. Havell.?Mr. |Havell is evidently unstudied in sunset effects. The tone of color in the distance of this picture, if it resembles any aspect of nature, is that of misty morning. The sun tint in the sky appears to have been composed of chrome yellow, a color which glares upon the eye, without carrying any idea of warmth. Claude Lorraine, the great master of sunset effects, employed mild ochres, and gave them value by the pearly grays and purples of his distance, and the transparency and depths of his foreground shadows. The manipulation of this picture is both original and good?and we regret that it should have been united with so false and unpleasing a style of color. No. 87. The Gamester?E. Rosseau.?We are free to confess, that this picture defies all our efforts to comprehend its meaning or design. From the introduction of varioudfastastical personages,we presume it is probably allegorical. We can conceive that the lady on the foreground has been ungallantly knocked down, and that the gentleman with the pistol, has either shot, or is going to shoot somebody ?but all else is to us "confusion worse confounded." It is possible that the picture may be intended as a burlet-que or caricature, but if so, we would suggest to Mr Rosseau the propriety, in efforts of such a character, of numbering the figures, and describing the meaning carefully in the catalogues. No. 40. Portrait of Mrs. Skba Smith?C. G. Thompson ?A glorious subject, handled in a vrry clever, artist-like manner. We have no means of judging of the truth of the likeness, but if it be one, Mrs Seba Smith's beauty is worthy of her intellec tuality?and it not, we should not desire a finer ideal of a Sappho. No. 59. The Letter?G. A. Baker.?A delightful picture; Titian like in its coloring?correctlydrawn, and altogether, nweellv enneei vt-H 228 Steamboats South America, North America, Utica, and Rochester, of We6t Point?J. Pringle. We mention this picture, only for the purpose of earnestly protesting against ine admission of productions of such a class into a public exhibition.? The space of wall which is occupied would have been, it left vacant, if uninteresting not disgusting. Its appearance in the room, destitute as it is ol a solitary point of merit, is an insult to the public taste. No. 211. Portrait of a Gkntlxman? W. Page. N. A ?A truly grand head?we think, unquestionably, the finest picture of its class in the exhibition. We do not esteem it extravagant praise to say?that it may rank with the best works of the best modern masters. No. 74. FarNiente?G. W. Flagg, A.?The style of this arti-t is evidently formed upon a careful study of the old masters. We cannot approve the affectation ol endeavoring to give a new picture the ai>|iearance of age, as in this case Mr. Flagg has done. It is, however, a work of decided merit No 148. Portrait of Fanny in her costume of the Cacliucha? E Ilosseau. Mr Kosseatt again. We fear this gentleman will be dissatisfied with our remarks?but in our cspacity of critic, we are bound to recotd the true impression made upon us by the works under review.? Such a course is imperiously demanded by the highest interests ofthe art. We can accord to this gentleman the praise of industry, he having no less than seven picturesexhibited. Hut we must assure him, that if he is ambitious oi becoming even a respectable artist, he must endeavor at once to unlearn all his present ideas of art, which are utterly false and bad. Otir River and Canai-s.?We learn from the Albany Journal of the 2d inst., that some thirty boats, in all, have cleared for the west, since the opening of the canal. The navigation on the first division is uninterrupted, but a letter from Mr. Commissioner Iiarll, states that his section, (that extending west from Franklorf,) would not be ready till yesterday. Last Monday night the Hudson rose nearly 24 inches. The water now covers the pier and wharves in Albany to the depth of five or six feet. This is a great inconvenience to merchants and forwarders. Breach ji* the Ciixnanoo Canal.?The Lebanon Reservoir, near Hamilton, gave way I ant Monday, letting loose a flood of water, that swept every thing before it. This reservoir was one of immense and costly structure, built for the purpose of collecting water on a summit level of the Chenango Canul. Oswego Canal.?In conseguence of the great de,pth of water, this canal whs not in <>|ierHtion last Monday. May Blossom* Snow fell in Philadelphia las ^Sunday Common Council. boiid or Aldkrmkii?Wednesday, May 31.?Present Alderman Wood hull In the Chair, and all the member* present except Alderman Bonnall, who it confined to hi* houte by (icknesa. Removing Snow and Ice.?A resolution was introduced to pay Wm. H. Rnapp $100 for removing snow and ice from certain streets in the fourth ward during the past March, under the direction ofihe Alderman of that want. It was finally adopted by a vote of 1 3'o 3. urasinn rieri.? i ne t ommiltceol nuance rrppneu in favor of leasing thoaouth side of pier loot of Cedar street to steamboat Westchester and aloop Othello, for one year, for $1000 per annum, und the pier foot of Hubert" street to A. BHrmore, for $3' Oi) per annum, which was adopted Wooden fainmute?The Street Coaimittee, to whom was refeired ihn subject of repavnig that portion of Broadway betweeu Bleecker uud Lighth streets, that has been previously paved with wood, reported in favor of the object, and sta ed in their report, that experience had shown in this experiment that paving in wooden blocks was in no way to be compared to the usual paving by stone, and there!ore recommended that the street be paved in the usual way, with the addition of lour wheel passage ways ot stone blocks for the use of vehicles, to be laid 600 leet aliove Bleecker street. Adopted. Joint Meeting. This being the first Wednesday in the month, both Boards assembled in joint meeting, to make the appointments falling due at this period. The minutes were read?during which time the lobbies and galleries were crowded with applicants and expectants, all anxious to hear the tones of tne executioner. Firemen Expelled ?The joint committee on Fire and Water, reported in favor of expelling F. Auspack, Assistant Foreman of Engine Company No 33, and Simou Buck, Ross Tuttle, Joseph Frick and Abraham Kipp, for fighting with members of No. 41. The same committee reported in favor of confirming the expulsion ol a number of other members for other causes. Resigned?The resignation of James W. rinckney, Deputy Comptroller, was presented and accepted. James Cruikshanks, Assessor of the tirst ward, presented his resignation, which was readAlderman Bit n said it could not be received, as the only result was, that if he refused to be sworn in on Moiv day next, tinder the charter, ho must be lined ?15 for noncompliance. Alderman Dines said that there was no remedy in the Common Council, butthat Mr. Cruikshanks must serve. The only way that he could possibly get rid ot the otlice, was either to die or move out of the city, when the Mayor cotil 1 order a new election. The resolution was finally withdrawn. Alderman Balis then ottered a resolution appointing Nicholas C. Everett, the present Assistant Justice of the 4th and 6th ward Court, Assistant Justice ot the l'Jth ward, in place of Isaac Doughty, whose term of ottica has ex. pired. Alderman Pi-rdy nominated Henry B. Gowles, formerly member of Congress from Westchester county, for the same otiice. The ballot stood, for Nicholas C. Everett 19; for Henry B. Cowles 13; blanks 3. Mr. Everett was therefore declared elected. Joseph K. Taylor, Clerk of the Board of Aldermen, was then nominated as cleik of the 7th, 10th and 13th wards, in place of Jaim-s T. M. Bleakley, whose term ot ottice has expired. Carried unanimously. Horace Loofborough, present Mayor's Clerk, was then nominated as Clerk of the Upper Police, in place of Danl. M. Frye, whose term of ottice has expired. Alderman Purdy nominated Daniel M. Frye, and Alderman Lee passed quite a compliment upon his capabilities as a clei k and bis excellence as a man. The ballot resulted as follows :? For David M- Frye 17 For Horace Loofborough 16 David M. Frye was therefore declared re-elected. Considerable applause followed in the lobbies on the announcement from the President, which was immedi ately suppressed. James T. M. Bleakley, present clerk of the 7th ward court, was then nominated as a Clerk in the Lower Police office. Aldermen Leonard, Ward and Brown, opposed making this new office, on the ground that there was no necessity for an additional clerk in that office. Alderman Crolius nresented a statement from the Jus tices of the Lower Police, stating that they had been materially aided in the prosecution of their business by the gratuitous assistance of John Sparks, a young man who has been engaged in the office for the past two year*, and therefore asked for some compensation to be made him lor his services. Assistant Alderman Waterman objected because he thought that the Common Counsel, in joint ballot, ought not to create such an office, und fill it, without further knowledge]or information as to its necessity .That itsbould be first presented to a committee of both boards for exam, ination and action, and finally passed upon with due deliberation, before the public money was thrown away by thus creating a new place for a political partizan. A motion to lay on the table was lost. Alderman Purdt then said that he should protest against the passage of a resolution making the appointment, as it was illegal and uncalled for. He then present, ed the following protest: ? " We, the undersigned, members of the Common Council of the city of New York, do respectfully protest against the appointment of an additional clerk to the lower police office in the city of New York, for the following reasons:? First?Because we have before us no evidence that such an additional officer is needed by tbe public interest. Secondly?Because it unnecessarily tends to increase the public burthens. Thirdly, and more especially?Because by law thii Common Council have no power to make any such ap pointment. The law conferring the power gives the ap pointment to the " Mayor, Aldermen.aad Common JCoun cil," and not to this body without the Mayor. New York, May 3.1, 1843. Daniel Ward, Elijah F. Purdy, Charles P. Brown, Moses O. Leonard, James Nash, Abrah im Hatfield, Charles J. Dodge, Frederick R. Lee, Peter Esquirol, C. W. Smith, David F. Williams, Robert Martin. John Pettigrew, Alderman Leonard moved to refer the whole subject to a committee, for eiamination, which was lost by a vote 01 o-u 10 nova ia Alderman Pubdt then moved that the protett be enter ed on the minute*, The President stated that the Alderman had made th< protest public, and the motion to enter on the minatei must follow after final action upon the resolution. Assistant Alderman Waterman moved to fix the salary of the office at MOO. The President decided that the motion was out of or der, as it was a matter of legislation, and the Common Council had no legislative powers in joint ballot The original resolution was then adopted, thedemocrati refusing to vote for or against the resolution. J. M. Bleakley was therefore declared elected a Clerh of the Lower Police. William G. Sterling was then nominated asAssistanl Justice of the 4th aud 6th Wards, in the place of Nicholai C. Everett, appointed Justice ol the 13th ward. Alderman Lek nominated Joseph P. Pirsson, of the 6th ward. The ballot stood for Stirling 17; Pirsson 16. And Mr Stirling was declared elected Thomas Jeremiah, of the 17th ward, a democrat, wai then nominated and appointed Receiver ot Taxes undei the recent law, with a salary of $"2,000, which was unanf mouslv adopted. D. D. Williamson, the present Comptroller, was ther nominated as Deputy Receiver, which was adopted by i vote with but one dissenting voice. The Joint Meeting here adjourned. The Board or Aldermen resumed their business at ( o'clockA communication was received from the Clerk of th< Board, asking the appointment of a committee to esamini bis accounts for the past year, which was adopted, am Alderman Leonard, Purdy, and Woodhull, were ap pointed.

A Card, Having been arreste! on Thursday evening last on the affidavit ol James T. Rodgers, of the firm of Slumm and Rogers, andJno. G. George, on the charge ef obtaining ,, a certain coal contract un.!er false pretend s, St!., Ste., end incorrect and distorted statements ot these charges having appeared in the city newspapers, calculated to n jure my character as a man of business and rectitude, I J think it proper to make the fallowing brief statements ol facts( A full hearing was had before the Recorder, the com- | plainants appearing with their counsel, on the next day |. after my arrest, and on the evidence presented, I was t discharged from arrest, and the complaint dismissed. I have been for the last season the agent of the North- c ampton Bank of Pennsylvania, to sell for them on commission several cargoes of Lehigh ooal, which business I have transacted, I believe, to their satisfaction. ' From the connection with the Bank, I learnt that it in1 tended to forward a large amount of coal to this market * during the present season, which eoal they were to receive from the Lehigh Company for a balance of monies 2 due by that Company to the Bank. * The substance ef the contract between the Lehigh Company and the Bank was, that the former would sell the Bank 30,000 tons of coal, delivered at Mauch Chunk I curing me snipping season 01 imj, on mr uanis paying . $1 per ton, In fundi at par at Philadelphia, aa the coal was delivered, and also passing to their credit on the t< books ol the Bank tho amount of $1 per ton, and also the tolls on the Lehigh Canal. To get the coal, then, to this 4 city would require an advance ol $2 40 on each ton of coal, for the cash to be paid the Lehigh Company, and for the tolls and freight. I On February last, the Bank, through Mr. Rice, Prcai- i dent, made a negotiation with Slamm mid Rogers, ol No. I 1! Wall street, und John O. George, by which the Bank f agreed that they would ship the coal to their parties i hive, paying the $1 per ton to the Lehigh Company, and i the freight and tolls to Bristol, and allowing Rogers and r George a commission to be afterwards lixed upon for sell- e ing the coal-Rogers and George agreeing to handover f the proceeds of sales to the Bank until September 1st, 1 1 giving their acceptances to the Bank (or $30,000, falling 1 ' due in various sums in March, April, May, June, July and August. I On the 2d of March last, I made a contract with Slamm c ! & Rogers,to sell this coal on commission, aa it arrived, r and on an assignment of the coal contract, and a deposit a of $23,000 ot the bills of the bank, which they guaran. c teed should be at par on the 1st day of May, to procure fcr them an advance of $30,000. I then supposed, (and had no reason to think otherwise, as I had not aeen the c contract,) that it was qh absolute and unconditional en- | gagement from the Lehigh Co., to deliver 30,000 tons ol r coal at Bristol and New York, without any qualification r or payments whatever. ? Thppp wort* nn falnA nn mv nnrt In Tinarpra and no false assumptions of wealth. They ki.ew my situ- r ation, means and business exactly. They knew that it was to others I must look to carry out the contract they had entered into with roe. . On finding that the contract I had made with Rogers on . the 2d March, could not be executed by them, I entered into another contract with Slamm & Rogers and John O. 8 George, on the 12th April, by which they agreed to re. 8 ceive $20,000; and tho agreement for the deposit of securities by them was omitted. ' The period for the execution of this contract expired I on the ISth April, but was verbally kept alive by consent oi parties from day to day, until the 20th of April, when 1 called upon Mr George, with my parties, who assured them we weie willing to deliver the goods or j tnoney forthwith, if suitable security were lurnished for r the delivery of the coal. Between the executionjof the 1 second contract and the 28th of April, I ascertained to my i satisfaction that the hank had failed and made an assign- f 1 merit, and was probably in a state of irretrievable cmbar- t rassment. c 1 I also ascertained from authentic sources that there e were several unsatisfied judgments and notes against i 1 James T. Rogers, which made it undesirable to place a e ' large amount of goods or money absolutely in his posses- s sion, without some other security than this conditional Lehighcontiact, as creditor's bills had besn filed against ' him, upon which nothing could be obtained. Under these facts, I informed Messrs. Rogers k George that the goods (as was the fact) hail teen purchased, but that from the failure of the bank, who had agreed to pay ( the $1 per ton to the Lehigh Company, and the tolls and t freight, my friends thought it necessary that Rogers ; should give some collateral secuiity that the coal should t be paid for and forwarded to this city, or that the grea'er part of tho money I had agreed to procure should be de> posited in bank, here to be drawn upon to pay the costs f I and expenses of forwarding the coal to this market. , I also offered Mr. Rogers k Co. if they would take the J goods and pay for them?or any loss that might be incurred.from their purchase ?1 would cancel my agreement 5 with them and surrender the contract of the Lehigh Co., leltlwith me by the terms of my contract with them. ' The fact of the purchase of the goods, and my full ahili- 1 ty to comply with my contract provided it could be made 1 ssfe for me to have delivered the Hoods, or mouer. ran be 1 fully substantiated by ibe evilence ol thoae merchant* 1 > who had sold the good*, and hy several others privy to * my whole negotiation*. ' < ' The allegation that I obtained possession improperly of < the Lehigh contract, is disproved by the fall receipt 1 I gave Rogers and George. J The paper* were neither interlined nor mutilated in ' I any way by mo. 1 1 On my refusal to inrrender the Lehigh contract to I them without aome compensation for the expense* incuri red, they refusing or being unable to givn the recuntv demanded, instituted criminal proceedings ngcinst me, which terminated in my honorable discharge by the Recorder. 1 On the toregoing statement, which i* strictly trap, and r which I can corroborate hy unimpeachable "atfi tsvit*, I rest for the vindication ol my good name and business rectitude, which have been ao ruthif**ly assailed. The 1 suffering caused to myself and my Irien^s by these un 1 founded charges, spread as they have owen in a distorted and exaggerated shape before this community, can be fully appreciated by all. The object of my assailants un1 doubtpdly was to compel me to surrender the contract, in order that they might accept a more favorable otfer they 9 declared they had from sther parties since my contract 9 waa entered into.

He that ia unmerciful 1 to his beast is so to his fellow beings. How cruel is it to 0 induce people to spend money for the vile nostrums of the e day, and either destroy their health by taking them or suffer the disease to go beyond the reach of medicine from j their inertness. How much better would it be were they to go at once to 100 Nassau street, and get some of Sherman's Lozenges?they will cure coughs, headaches, and all nervous diseases sooner and better than any thing we know of, and they are the lenst expensive, costing only a h few shilling* for enough to cure any ordinary case? , Three years extensive use of these Lozenges has fully tested their virtues, so none need be sceptical about them. " Parson Bell" recommended them *o his audience the i ] other day, as the greatest medicine in existence. He has cured himself of coughs and hoarseness in a few hours.
