Commercial Delations with England.?The proposed new treaty with England, for the mutual 1 arrangement of tariffs of duties, on principles of i reciirocity. has created a great deal of discussion ' and remark in the various journals throughout the < country. Generally, among all the mercantile, moderate . and agricultural interests, the proposition, as tar < as we can perceive, has been received with a good I deal of favor. The only opposition to such a treaty, has come from the ultra politicians of the two large party camps into which the country is i jl-ij 1 j C .1 4l i uiviuru?miu, evrn iruin uir&r, uic (>|>|>umuuu hub been rather iaint and inefficient. i Among the greatest objections which we have i seen, is that interposed, as is supposed, by the conHtitution, which gives the power to Congress assembled to arrange all tariffs. According to this view of the subiect, it is contended that such a subject as 1 the arrangement of a tariff does not belong to the | treaty-making power, viz:?the President and t Senate. But even this objection can be overcome, < by requiring for such a treaty the concurrence of 1 both houses after it shall have been arranged by the t two executives. Something of the same kind is i now required in carrying out every treaty. The i Senate must confirm a treaty directly, and the I House of Representatives indirectly, by voting the i supplies, before any treaty is in operation. < We are persuaded that commercial treaties will \ yet become a great topic of discussion, not only in i this country, but throughout the world. According | to the views now entertained, they form the firmest 1 basis of peace, amity and friendship, between na- < tions. Good Times ?The times are certainly improving J ?at least in commercial and agricultural affairs, ^ whatever it may be in moral and religious matters. Business of all kinds is now very healthy?prices low and steady?exchanges every where equalized ?trade prosperous, and good stocks and products rising moderately according to the demand and judicious management. The weather and season are also good?and the chance of most abundant crops ery fine. It is probable that the productions of the earth, during the ensuing season, will be 10 to 20 per ' cent more than ever it was before in the United States. Foreign immigrants, and vast quantities of specie are pouring into the land. j" Such is our position and prospects. It is evident, however, that next year, a great po- 1 litical contest will be fought between the supporters of aU. S. Bank on the one side, and the supporters ' of a specie currency and the present state of things on the other. The fluctuations which will be caused by this contest, will aflect all stocks?particularly State stocks?although the trade in the great agricultural staples maybe untouched. It is safest to be confined to cash business in real goods?but not to touch stocks at alt. From Waihlngton. We understand from our private correspondent at Washington, that the President will soon make the following appointments to fill vacancies:? Mr Upshur, of Virginia, Minister to France. R. M. T. Hunter, of Virginia, to be Secretary of the Navy. Doctor Mallory, to be Ckargi de$ Affairtt at Constantinople. These will all be very capital appointments. Mr. Hunter is a man of talents, and a friend of John C. Calhoun?so also is Doctor Mallory, who will go to Constantinople. These appointments are taken from the original friends of Mr. Tyler?those who first supported him in Congress?but will ultimately support Calhoun. They did not abuse him savagely and then come out like many of the mercenary rascals in this latitude, because they saw some chances of getting a mouthful of the spoiU. Few further changes are expected to be made here or in the northern cities, until after Captain Tyler shall have returned from his June excursion t? the Bunket Hill Monument. Major Joe Hopkins, of this city, has received a promise of some of the pickings of ths naval contracts in this quarter. Many others'.have had the same promises, but they don't amount to much. Wanted to Purchase, The celebrated bed, with the sheets, blankets and other paraphernalia, in which the Hon. John Minor Botts, of Virginia, and Captain Tyler, President of the United States, slept together on the night of the 2d of March, 1841, in Brown's Hotel, Washington, where the affairs of the nation?the whig party, and the country were discussed and settled. Also, wanted the single wash-stand in which both washed ?and the towel which both used on that celebrated day. A fair price will be paid for these valuable curiosities, as they are wanted for the American Museum of New York. Apply to Joe Smith, Mineralogist and Antiquarian.

He will rusticate three weeks there, and then come north to Boeton, to be present at the Bunker Hill celebration on the 17th June. Hisjourney, or progress through Baltimore, I IIIIMIgptlH. ana .New iorK, win cn*aie a great sensation and excitement. Great preparations are making to give him a splendid receptionMr. Webster leaves Washington early this week. He partakes of a public dinner at Baltimore on Thursday, and makes a great speech, defining his josition? the state of parties?and the prospects of he future. He then returns to Marshfield to catch ish and prepare himself for the delivery of the great >ration on Bunker Hill on the 17th of June.

Noorrit.?This promises to be a brilliant of the first water. First rate artists?first rate pieces?a perfect galaxy of talent. The Signor and the Monjicur are not to be beaten in Europe. The one is a clashing, handsome, manly fellow, brim full of talent, wit and philosophy?the other versatile in ge aius, refined, elegant?the very beau ideal of u? ftitftihommt Francau. M. Nonrrit is a stranger in this city, but he brings with him a European fame, and his artist-like, chaste and beautiful singing, will stamp him as a worthy brother of that celebrated Adolphe Nourrit, to whose memory the French people have erected a magnificent monument, which they still deck with wreaths in proof of their admiration. With such attractions, the ladies, bless their dear hearts,will crowd Niblo's Operatic Saloon with their pretty faces. Signor Nagel will certainly astonish as well as ielight this evening. He will show the pubtic that while ordinary players grovel along upon four strings, his genius takes a more masterly and original flight, and revels upon four, three or two, just as his fancy leads him, and finally plays the Devil a la Tartini upon one string. It will be a moment of intensely wrought interest, when, one by one the strings are cut from the instrument, and the one lone string, wailing and moaning for its fellow cat-gut, sends forth tones so pathetic and tender that they would move the heart of the nether milljtone. It will be a rich scene; one that all of a philosophical turn of mind should witness. Mrs. Edward Loder and Mr. Timm do their ihare in the Concert, and altogether Signor Nagel's ast appearance will be a brilliant ending, everyway vorthy its beginning. Go early and secure your seats, all ye that are musical. City Intelligence. Thb Great Trotting Match between the celebrated horses Ripton and Americus, for $2000, three miles and repeat, in sulkeys, came off yester uay uurruuun uvcr me DtiicoH v^ouree, near noDOken. The day was fine, the course in excellent condition, and the attendance more numerous than was ever known in this vicinity to witness a trotting match. The horses were both in fine condition, Ripton rather too well kept, and at starting the odds wer# #100 to #60 in favor of Americus. At about half past 3 o'clock they started, Americus on the lead, which he kept by a few feet, until coming down the Btraight side en the last quarter of the first mile, when Ripton came up alongside, and kept so until coming round the turn, at the first quarter of the second mile, when Americus broke up, and Ripton darted ahead, going at a killing pace, until he opened a gap of some hundred yards. Americus then came down to a square trot, and closed the space between them more than half on passing the stand at the second mile. They now went it at an extraordinary speed, Americus gradually closing up the gap. and his driver urging him to his utmost to win the heat; but all woula not do, as Ripton passed the scratch with the nose of Americus at nis sulkey wheel, amid the shouting and huzzaing of his friends and backers. The first mile was performed in 2 m. 37 s.?the second, including the first, in 5 m. 14 s., and the three miles in 7 m 53 s. Second Hkat.?Americus broke up almost immediately after the word " go," but was reined down on the first turn, and came by the stand on a lap with his competitor, doing the mile in 2 m. 45 s The second mile was well contended for, both horses going through without a "break." in 5 m. a >k; J _:i~ ~n f*j o.f inv.iuuiii(5 me uidi. vm me 11111 u lime an went well, Americus following close to Kipton's heels until coming inside the gate, when he agsin broke up, and Rinton won the heat in 8 m. 3s. without a break, or being headed by his swift competitor. He was declared winner of the 1>uree, and it was then announced that the same inrses would trot two mile heats and repeat on Monday the 22d instant, and one mile and repeat on Monday the 29tn, for $20'. over the same course. The races over the Union Course on Long Island commence on Tuesday the 30th instant,and continue three days. Much real sport is anticipated. Promising Cash and Paying in Promises.?A German named W. Prashun, who has occupied a grocery store at the corner of Clinton and Broome streets, was arrested yesterday and committed on several charges of obtaining goods under false pretences. Edward P. Truesdeli, of 20 Canal street, stated that he called on him a few weeksfsince ana obtaiined a barrel of bleached sperm oil, valued at 822 80, which he was to pay for in cash on delivery and which, after delivery he refused either to return or settle for, but stated that he had sold out his place to F. F. Cischmann, whose name had been hoisted over the door after the purchase.? Mr. Thomas E. Boome made a similar charge, stating that he had obtained from him a lot of crockery, valued at 827 50, by similar representations. Samuel Hays also appeared and charged him with obtaining candles and soap, worth 820 50, and ,W. H. Ellis, a lot of coffee valued at about 820. Interference with the Coroner's Dt-ties ? The body of Patrick Brady, who has resided near the High Bridge in Westchester county, was found on Sunday last, near the shore, on the premises of Mr. Jarvis, County Clerk, who resides in the 12tk ward, and who, it appears, partially sanctioned its removal to Westchester county, before the Coroner had arrived to rr.ake an examination as to the cause of the death of the deceased. The body was removed by Patrick Finn, John Finn, and William Nevering; and when the Coroner arrived at the place where it was found, to his astonishment he ascertained that it had been taken out of his jurisdiction, in violation af the State law, and also a recent city ordinance, prohibiting removal ot dead bodiesoutof the county without a certificate from the City Inspector. Tne authorities of Westchester should take this matter in hand at once, as the man may have been murdered and thrown overboard. Burglary in New Jersey.?The store of Park fe Creveling, of Unionville, Morris county, New Jersey, was burglariously entered on Thursday night, and robbed of dry goods valued at about 8200 Officera Kelyea and Kellinger having been apprized of the robbery, proceeded in search of tha rogues, and in so doing ascertained that all the property stolen had been taken to Levy's pawnbroker establishment, in East Broadway, and pawned for 860. The goods being identified, they were returned to the owners, and the pawnbroker was left minus his fifty dollars. Information was received last evening that a man had been arrested in New Jersey who was supposed to have committed the burglary. The Countercheck Quarrelsome.?We are requested to state that the charges latelyenade at the police office by Ceorge H. Morris, coal dealer, No. 34 Cold street, in this city, against Philip T. ^inslow, for obtaining coal under false pretences an account of which was published ie this paper of the 14th of April last, are entirely erroneous. Mr Wins low was honorably discharged on his first examination, as there was nothing which, in the slight.-hi degree, established any of the allegations mentioned under the head of police rej?ortH,and published in our paper of that date ; and the complainant Moms has been held t" hail in the sum of one thouaand dob lar-, in a suit commenced against htm by Mr. Winalow lor false imprisonment * Common Council.

Mayor's Veto.?A veto from the Mayor was presented, giving his reasons lor refusing to aigu a warrant in favor I of paying Charles King $3000 for compiling and publishing a history of the Croton Water Works, from their ] commencement to the date of the processioa. Theobjec- , tions, as given by the Mayor, are, that the joint Croton , water celebration committee, who authorised the compi- , lation and printing of this wmk, had no such power ves- ( ted in them,and that it was therefore necessary that an , ordinance should have passed both boards of Aldermen, , and received the sanction of the Mayor, before it was le- , gal. That the committee who ordered this work were , appoimeu oniy ionne purpose 01 maaing arrangements , to celebrate the introduction of the water into the . city, and their expense* were limited to $2000, nearly all of which had been expended for such special purpose ? That another reason why he considered it improper to order this publication at the present period is, that the rqueduct is not completed, as the bridge orer Harlem river, which would certainly be the most magnificent and imposing part of the whole work, was yet unfinished. And in conclusion, that from the $30,000 as applied for in the general tax bill, as appropriated for printing for the present year, the recent Common Council had expended $16,000, leaving only $4000 in the treasury for the remaining eight months of the year. The veto was placed on file and ordered to be printed dnoihrrVeto ?Another veto was received from theMay or, refusing to sign the ordinance allowing the public square on the " Five Points" to be used for the construction of a public school house,and giving as his reasons that the Corporation have no more right to occupy such square with a building than they have to use the public streets for the same purpose It is to be hoped that the square will be cleaned up and improved so as to be an ornament to that part of our city, instead of a receptacle for all the coal ashes and filth of that peculiar neighborhood. Communication from Ike Mayor.?A communication was received from the Mayor relative to the grades ot water pipes, as bow being laid down in avenue A, on the east side, which he asserts will require a corresponding expense on the west side,costing together nearly a quarter *f a million of dollars, and which will materially interfere with and prevent that full supply in the Bowery and other points of high ground in the city so necessary in cases ot fire and other causes. He therefore recommends a discontinuance of the work for the present. Joint Mkbtiro?Both Boards met in Joiat Meeting at 6 o'clock. The minutes having been read, Aldermam JHatticld moved that Douw D. Williamson be removed from the'office of Con>ptroller,|which was adopted by a vote of 23 to 7.

Alderman Hatfield moved to lay the resolution on the table which was adopted by a vote of 33 to 6. Alderman Hats-iild then moved that Alfred Smith be appointed to the office of Comptroller. Aluerman Scolcs opposed the nomination, and charged Alfred A. Smith with neglecting his,public business while , Comptroller, and allowing Tom Lloyd to defraud the city , of between $90 and $100,000. He then offered a rosolu- , tion making enquiry into the manner in which Alfred A- , Smith performed the duties ol his office. , Alderman Tillou replied, and said that when a com- j mlttee had fully examined the accounts of Mr. Williamson he had no doubt that this Board would pass upon them , in accordance (with the result of such investigation.? , He then presented the resolution of the (last Joint Finance Committee of the Common Council, in which ( they expressed their perfect satisfaction as to the , manner in which Mr. Smith had performed the du- , ties of his office. He then asked if alter that it was fair, proper, or just, that such allegations should be made by a j eentleman of this Board ofthe same political nartv as the ' majority of the very committee who had thui paiaed upon kia acta. He further atated that Mr. Smith hadthefull confidence of the capitaliata of thia city, and he believed th-)t few men were more capable for the performance ol the dutiea of aaid office than Alfred A. Smith. The nomination waa then made, and Alfred A. Smith waa appointed Comptroller. Pierre A. Young waa choaen Deputy ComptrollerJohn Ewen, reappointed Street Commission^-. Win. H.

Treasury Note Robbery.?The following examination of the individuals recently arrested at Washington, for the robbery of Treasury notes at Nhtlt Oplstana ia pnnrlnnaurl I PAtn VatiAnn I Tn lelligencer of yesterday:? On the examination of the prisoners, who employed Mr. Hoban as their counsel, alter tbe testimony of McClinlock Young. Esq. Chief Clerk ol the Treasury Department, who produced the necessary affidavits and papers received from New Orleans, had been taken, and that oncor two other witnesses, the magistrates determined to commit the prisoners for further examination. And on its being suggested by Mr Hoban that bail coald probably be obtained lor Reines, and the Justices being desired to state the imount of the security which would be required in his case, the sum of one hundred thousand dollars was, after proper dcliherotion, demanded. In default of bail, the three prisoners were committed to prison by Justices Oiberson, Ooddard and Thompson. A great crowd haviDg issembled around the magistrate's office, the prisoners, were, at their own request and expense, conveyed to jail in two hacks, in custody of Captain Ooddard, the Deputy Marshal, officers Burr, Dexter, and other attendants. The description of the prisoners laid before tne Justices, snd which was received at the Treasury Department, corresponded exactly with the persons of Breedlsve, Jewell, and Reines, except that the scar on Jewell's ace, "believed to be on the left cheek," was found to be on the right cheek. No doubt is however enterained that they are the persons described in the advertisement and hue and cry. But, as if to remoue all ioubt on the subject, and to obviate the necessity for any [urther examination in this city as to the identity of the prisoners, Capt.H. 8. Harper, Deputy United States Marshal for the First Judicial District of Louisiana, and oth. rerJno. Cottom arrived in this city from New Orleans' (which they lefton Friday, the 6tn inst) about an hou ' slter the commitment ef the prisoners, for the purpose o claiming them on behalf 01 the Louisiana authorities' should they appear to have been apprehended in this city. Being present when the officers from New Orleans visited the prisoners in jail, on Saturday evening, we had an opportunity ol witnessing their mutual recognition. The prisoners all seemed pleased to meet the officers, whom they recognised as old acquaintances, and expressed a perfect willingness, nay, a desire to go back to New Orleans rather than remain in our county jail. We understand that the New Orleaus officers intend to remove the prisoners from this city with as little delay aspracticaThe subjoined is the description of the three prisoners sent on by the Louisiana authorities. It is proper to add that a fourth person, named Marsh Halliday, not yet arrested, is charged with being concerned in this great robbery oi the Treasury notes from the New Orleans Cus. torn House. No description of Halliday b person has been giAen in tho paper of which the following is an exact copy:? Jno. M. Breadlove is represented to be about 0 feet 0 or 7 inches high, rather stoutly built, dark hair and eves, no whiskers and but little beard?a very genteel lobking young man. Joseph W. Jewell is about 6 feat 8 or B inches high,very itout, has a large scar on his cheek (believ ed to be the left :neeit) niacK tiair, and usually wean large wmsueri; is ibout 40 years eld; came to this city from New York, I ivhere it is said he was tried ior homicide (for killing a I aratchmao; whether he wee acquitted or pardoned is not Known here. Sawyer Heines is about 8 feet 6 or 7 inr ,gh, lighter made than Jewell, dark complexion, b'> hair ind whiskers, and is about 40 years old.

The mercantile demand is not large. The immense exertions of those who have been bolster* ing and inflating the Ohio 6 percent stock, in order teobtain bids ior the 7,'per ct. have been in vain. The applications were a failure. In order to put some face on the matter, a few persons subscribed, not to pay any money, but to give certificates payable next September, on condition that the whole loan is taken. The subscribers are as follows :? Jacob Little b Co. J. N. Perkins, cashier and Ohio State agent. H. H. Winslow, broker, employed by the State of Ohio. Drew,Robinson Ic Co., money changers. Ketchum, Rogers k Bement, brokers. Kufus L. Lord. John Rankin. Joseph 8. Lake b Co., Ohio Commissioners. The loan is of course au utter failure. The 10th sec tien of the law authorising the loan is as follows :? Sec. 19. That if the sum so borrowed by the Fund Commissioners,under the provisions of the seventeenth section of this act, shall not amount to six hundred thousand dollars, then the Canal Fund Commissioners thall issue lo said contractors, if they require it, certificates of stock of the State, bearing an interest of 7 per centum, payable semi-nnnunlly in the city of New York, an<l the principal redeemable in said city rfer the yeer one thousand eight hundred and fifty-one, eMal in amount with the sum so borrowed, and paid to them, to the said sum of six hundred thousand dollars ; which stock shall be issued to said contractors, in a rateable proportion to their demands upon the State; and the balance of said payment shall be completed by the sale or issue of the domestic bonds of the State herrinl>efore provided for. The domestic bonds are 7 per cent, redeemable in ISili or at any time previous. Hence it will be observed, that contractors have a right to demand, receive the 7 per cent stock, and sell it at once, while the market willbear it. In September money may become scarcer than now, and they will suffer immense loss. If the contractors ever hope to get their money trom a State which has refused to be taxed to pay them, let them demand the 7 percent stock while the money market is easy. The Ohio 0 per cent stock dropped 4 per cent on Saturday, when the result of the loan was known.
