To find such sober re dities in the " Cou r er and Enquirer," is like finding an " oasis in the drseri"?a fragment of the Apollo Relvidore in a Missouri prairie?or ? specimen ot modesty in Col Webb hims-lf. Violence, brutality, beastiality, vulgarity, insolence, absurdity, ignorance and folly, all combined, for one day voluntarily laid a-ide by thatconcern. isas great a rarity asvirtue in a i>olitician?honesty in a stock-jobber?toleration in a fanatic?or meekness and long-suffering in Fennitnore Cooper. We therefore hail the following paragraphs, extracted from the " Courier" of yesterday, as we would the first blue birds of spring?or the early green peas, asparagus, and salmon from Florence's saloon, to be repaid by a powerful put!", price one | cent. [From the Courier and Enquirer] One of the first movement* in this State to break down Van Buren, and one which hss carried alarm into the regency rank", is the determination Very clearly avowed hv the people in dittereD' quarters, to repudiate the action of the re* ncy and th? legislature in relation to the time of holding the convention for the nomination of a loenfoco candidate This hodesthe sage of Lindenwold no good ? ? ???* Under this state of things hut t wo alt rnativea are left him?either to repudiate the clearly expressed will of his party, and pack a convention of friends next tall, and thus run up an independent (lrg, or retire from the contest. And we now tell the locofocos of this State and elsewhere, who think they know the little gentleman of Kinderhook quite as well as we do. that he and his fri> nds have determined to have the semblance of a convention next autnmn in defiance of the wishes of their party, and will not, under any circumstances, place his claims before the convention of 1844- This we a-e insured is fully deter, mined upon; and as the triends ol the other candidates will not qui tly submit to he thus whipped into the sup port of Mr. Van Buren. it follows of course, that there is to he lint little harmony in their ranks, and as little hoye of sncceas. In the meantime Mr Calhoun is not idle. Always frank and manly in his course, and beyond doubt, universally esteemed for his gentlemanly feelings, and admitted talents, he knows that if he can only get rid of the taritf question, he would unite every locfoco vote in the United States How he is to get rid of that stumbling block in time to answer his purposes, we cannot well perceive, al'haugh we are well satisfied to advocste a commercial treaty, which shall for the next fifteen years at least, dispose of that vexed question. If England will, by treaty, admit our agricultural products on lavorable terms, we are perfectly n-illing to stipulate to admit her manttfac. tures generally, st twenty per cent, her woollens at twentv-five, and her iron at such a rate as will insure a 1 competition without destroying our manufactoi ics of that ( necessary article-, hut this cannot be accomplished in a few months, and tberelore will not avail Mr. Calhoun in 1 the next contest. ] In connection with this subject, w# are assured on high authority, that Mr. Webster during bis recent visit to the 1 East,sounded his former whig friends upon the possibility | of producing a division of the whig ranks, in favor of Mr ( Calhoun '. Strange and almost incredible as this may comes to us in a shape which wan-ants our alluding la it, and is strengthened by the fact that his sen, Mr. Fletcher Webster, ha" verv recently proclaimed his ad nrrcnro io tq< south c-aronnian. is there any truth in this rumor ? The Commercial Advertiser. the Boston Atl > . end other pepere in tho coulidence of Mr. Wobeter, could probably answer this ijuestion if they thought advisable ?o to de: end if thpy should not, will the edi'or of the Boston Advertiser tell us what he knows in relation to it ? Wedo not desire his opinions upon the subject, as thetime mav not vet have arrived for him to art; but we desire to know whether Mr. Webster, during his late visit to the Eos;, did or did not endeavor to convince the Lowel manufacturer*, or any body else, that it was their interest and the interest of the whig party, to sustain Mr. Cal- i houo t * ? ? ^ What oourae Mr. Webstar will ultimately detetmine upon, is at present exceedingly loubtful, although webelievu be was prepared tome weeks since to unite his for i tunes with thoseof Mr Calhoun'. But be this as it may, the whiz party stands firm and united, while all the factions op.osed to it are distracted in council and utterly at a loss how to unite upon any eandida'e with the slightest prosprc* of success. We h ve only, therelore, to stand by our principles and all will be well. The inixtire of fact and ialsehood?sense and nonsense?sagacity and absurdity in these speculations, is very moderate and quite unexpected. The idea held forth of the weakness of Mr. Van Buren among the locofocos, is just as preposterous as to suppose that his friendsjin this State will insist on the November Convention at all hazards. Mr. Van Buren is not the weak man that the Courier represents ' him At tliis moment he is decidedly the strongest 1 candidal.- of the " democracie," and the idea of at- ' tachine such importance to the time, or mode, of ' assembling the convention, is preposterous. Mr. ' Van Buren's friends Hnd supporters are interwoven with the very organization of the "democracie," and it is comparatively a matter of little imi>ortance what time or how the conventiou may be constituted. 1 Neither are we to believe that the strength and ponul tntv of Clay are so certain and positive us the Courier represents. The many defeats hitherto met ' hv Mr. Clay and his friends, have arisen from this false?this fancied security of his silly friends ? I From present appearances, we consider Mr Clay's chance* as hazardous as they ever have been on any , former occasion This hazard is particularly itnmi- i nent at the present conjunction of affairs. One 1 of the greatest combinations of great men?from all j sections?and of every interest?in possession also of i the General and of many of the State governments, is now gradually forming, that menaces the fortunes of Mr. Clay to an equal, if not a much greater extent than those of Mr Van Buren. Let us explain. This new?this vast, this singular coalation seems also to be known to the Courier, without its possessing sagacity enough to see its tendencies?its (>ower?and its influence on the future movements of parties We allude particularly to the magnificent project of a new Commercial Treaty with England, embracing a mutual arrangement of tariffs?of duties, which appears to have secured the concurrence of the great manufacturers of the East, the cotton planters of the south?the stockjobbers of Wall street?and the commercial interest throughout?thus forming a weapon entirely in the hands of Calhoun, Webster and Spencer, to change the whole party action of the country for years to come. The Courier does not seem to see that the beginning and consummation of a great system of this magnitude, in the present monetary and financial position of the United States and England, would t<>rev?-r lay on the shelf, and set aside, all the ultra measure* nt Mr Clay as well as those of Mr. Van Buren A National Bank, or a Sub-Treasury?the distribution ot the public lands, or the non-distribution?the assumption of State debts, or the contra- , ry?would then be considered "obselete ideas," and ] those men who trusted to such obsolete id-as to t rise to power, would be trusting to teeble reeds. J It would appear, therefore, that the whole coun- ' try, tired of past contests, is ready to take up new 1 questions and new men. Wlietberthis new combination of great men, great interests, and great wthemet will seize upon the organization of the present whig or democratic p>arties, seems somewhat uncertain Events alone can determine the point. Mr. Webster may give us some further glimpses in his speech in Baltimore. At all events, we are on the veree ot movements?movement* that will I have a great influence on all the interest? of the country, and the present position of niany of its aspiring politicians One of the most beautiful part* of the game is to keep the friends of Clay on one aide and those of Van Buren on the other, bla/.ing away at Captain Tyler's treachery, Captain Tyler's imbecility. Captain Tyler's folly, just as Don nixone fought the wind-mill, while the rehl masterspirits and creators of the future, Webster, Spencer, and Calhoun, are marching onward to the highest pinnacles of fame, power and influence, over a new r.o i across the aI|m of Bank and .Sub Treasury, to iik. *sion of Kom? and the empire on the o if r side What a silly sheet the Courier is ' < iuki.k idCoNATANTiNori.K.?We find ihe follow- I i"K I'trdtrnph in the "Richmond Enquirer":? a " l)r Mullorv. of Virrinia. will probably be appointed I by Mr. T) lor to the office vacated by the dectuo o'l Co;n. Porter, at Constantinople." We find the nl>ore paragraph afloat in the newspapers. We Iidow not on what authority it rests. But for one, we second the proposition Fromjhia acquaintance with pavsl affairs. his knowledge of our foreigu relations, hi* general information, and hu ahiiitiea, we should consider Dr. .Mallory well qualifieil for the mission to Constantinople So there is little chance for Noah getting the place. So far so good. Ei.ection for School Commissioners.?A very interesting election comes off on the first Monday ot ' June, in this city. It is for school commissioners, and is conducted like other elections. Last year an amendment was introduced into the system, of the following character:? " The commissioners, inspectors and trustees so elected, shall hold their oflices for the following terms, viz : one commissioner and one inspector in each ward for ooe year; one commissioner and onu inspector for two years; and the five trustees in each ward for the several periods of one,two, three, four and five years. The term of sei. vice of each commissioner, inspector and trustee, to be determined by di awing lots at the lime when they shall he severally inducted into their offices. On the first Monday in lutio in each following year there shall be elected, u. the same manner, one commissioner and one inspector in each ward, whose term of service shall be two years, and one trustee whose term of service shall be Ave years." W> understand that a great effort is to be made to oust all ihe Catholic Commissioners, and particularly those in the 14th ward, where they have excluded the Bible irom the schools. \ andenhcff's Hknefit ?Mr George Vandenhofl who is playing a short engagement at the Park Theatre, has " won golden opinions from all sorts ol people," by his personation of high comedy?especially in the character of Benedick ; his performance of which on Saturday evening, obtained for him the compliment of a call before the curtain ? He repeated it lust night. For his benefit on Friday evenmg he puts out an excellent bill. The Suspicious Husband (exceedingly well cast) and Itob Roy?both of them pieces which have long lain by. There will doubtless be a full and fashionable house. All will be there who love a good sterling old comedy, and an interesting and stirring melodrama?both strongly cast and well acted. By the bye, Pelby of the National Theatre, Boston, has done a smart thing in securing Vandenhoff for next week. Jones of the (where Vandenhofi played before and was a great favorite) somehow shilly shallied about the engagement this time ; and Pelby meantime stepped in and offered Vandenhoff his own terms for five nights,with which offer of course the latter closed. Jones has since acceded to Vandenhofi's terms?but too late. The National will be the theatre next week at Boston. French Opera at Niblo's.?To-morrow evening the New Orleans company commence their musical novelties. The most extensive preparations have been made in every department to produce the operas and vaudevilles in exactly the same manner and , hv tlio XT ' ?- " I ~j ?? <- |a louua oa <11 new uneana. ivions and Madam Le Court have been especial favorites at New Orleans, and are well known to be first rate artists. Dessonville is said to be a most excellent comedian. Polichenelli, we perceive, is playing at Paris with great success, and contains much beautiful music. Great expectations are raised with regard to the boss singer, Mons. Bernard. As it is eleven vears since we have had a French company, we conceive that nothing could be so certain as the buccsss oi Niblo's selection of an Opera Frangaiee; especially as the greatest tasie will be exercised in the selection of the most popular operas of Auber, Donnizettt, Moutfort and Herold. United States City Despatch Post.?In consequence of a great number of removals in this city since quarter day, the carriers of this post have been unable to find many of the parties to whom letters are addressed, and which now remain unclaimed at the office in the Park. We are requested to make known this fact; and with a view of preventing any difficulty hereaf'er, the postmaster has ordered a registry of removals to be kept, and is anxious to be advised upon every change of residence, through any of the branch offices, and the name of the street, and number of the house; and on all occasions, when sending letters by this post, the public are called upon to have both these essentials to prompt delivery, distinctly written on the address. Musical Movements.?Signor Nagel's farewell Concert, on Tueodav evening, with Mons. Nourriit. tvas attended by a most dense and fashionable audience, as it most richly deserved. Both these ge.n:letnen leave to day for Boston, where they give a :oncert on Friday. Next Monday Signor Nagel departs for Hamburgh and his European tour. Sue* ce6e go with him. Dempster, the beautiful ballad singer, arrived yesterday from the South, and leaves to-day for Albany and the West. He is, without exception, one of the sweetest and most fascinating ballad vo cali-its that has eyer been heard iu this country The western people will give him a hearty welcome Mr Brsugh gives his concert next week, at which lie will sing several new songs. Russell gives a concert also next Monday evening, ;>rior to his departure for the South. f^The anniversary of the Sabbath School Union was celebrated at the Tabernacle in New York, one -vening of Inst week. In the course of the proceedings. Rev. Dr. Tyng, of Philadelphia, presented a resolution, accompanied by a speech, full of the noblest sentiments of Christian union and co-operation. "I am an Episcopalian," he exclaimed, "and not leas no an I grow oM?r, but I will not allsw ri,y self to bedoome (or lite to aolitary confinement. I will not be thut up within prison wall* to high that I cannot look over them upon my fellow-Chri?tians, nor they look over them to ' me." He urged, with great earnestness, upon the audience, as did Mr Hague, the obligation of the present generation to educate that which is growing up to succeed it.? National kitelligenitr. "Noblest sentiments !" In tho&e speeches of Dr. Tyng he was most particularly savage, harsh and vindictive on the Roman Catholics. Was such "Christian union and co operation!" McKenzie ?The following gentlemen were appointed a committee, in Boston, at s preparatory meeting of the subscribe* to the McKenzie Fund, to considerthe best method of testifying the regard of the citizens of Boston T H Perkins, H.

Hard Luck.?The present editor of ihe New York Brother Jonathan, John Neal, of Portland, State of Maine, solemnly declares, that within the last twenty-five years he haa been either grossly swindled, or otherwise ill-treated, by seven-eighths of all the American magazines, and full fifteen-sixleenths of all the American newspapers he ever had to do with, till nineteen-twentietha of them went to the dogs, and the rest were on the way, full split.

Her mail contains 14,tWO letters, and some 70 hushela oi newspapers and magazines. Body Found.?An inquest was held in Boston on Tuesday on the body of a man found floating in the water ofl Battery wharf. He was apparently a seafaring man, about forty years of age.

Sing Sing, May 15th, 18415 Dear Brnnkit An article appeared in your (taper during the first session ol the new board of prison inspectors, understood to have emanated from an ex scissors editor of the " Plebeian," calculated to mislead the public, by intimating that the good people of Sing Sing had generally approved and taken |tart in the late disgracelul outrages of a few disappointed office beggars, who by their conduct have demonstrated the discretion of the inspectors, at least so far as these rioters were concerned. This has been a subject of much complaint, and as the Herald means to deal equal justice to all, it is hoped you will put the saddle on the right horse. The smoke of effigies is cleared away, and the " sober second thought" has got possession of even the mob, and the question now is raised, " Who has been the leaders in this disgrace to our village 1"? The principal actors, however, are notoriou.-ly known, but shrink from the responsibility, and are ashamed to look their neighbors in the face. On the first evening ol the row, the mob held their meeting at the hotel of S. M. Tompkins, where it was harangued by George Sherwood, the grocer, who was also chairman of the meeting ? This Sherwood has a brother, a very raspectabV citizen, who was a disappointed applicant for the office of principal keeper of the prison But George should be excused, on the ground that he has not got brains or common sense enough to render him an accountable being His brother is believed to nave inei nis disappointment nae a democrat anu a gentleman S. M. Tompkins, who has been a principal leader, is a disappointed applicant for the office of agent, and was chairman of the second indignation meeting. But he also should be excused, on account ol a certain habit which induces him always to go ofl half-cocked after nine o'clock A. M. The chief pyrotechnist was Jno. T. Yoe, a young idler, who has been loafing about our village for several years, the son of a highly respectable parent The Standing of thisyoung man rendered his prospect of eetting an office, at the prison, through the front door, rather hopeless, and he undertook to outwit the inspectors by getting in at the back door, under the whigs, about a week before the new board met fn making their appointments, it seems that the new board of inspectors made no exceptions for the back door gentleman, but very soltly slid him out at the front door. Of course he had to show his indignation, and by way of showing his fitness for the office, of assistant keeper at the prison, assumed the head and front of the mob. These men, with the grocer's clerk, a lad about four feet high, who aspired to be sergeant of the guard, and the would-be agent's barkeeper, a chap of similar mould, who wanted the same office, with some three or four disappointed loafers and a rabble of boys, composed the effigy mob. Their conduct is spoken of with contempt by all respectable citizens of Sing Sing : and a wagish old gentleman very properly remarked the other day, that " if the leaders used their own old clothes for the effigies, it must have resulted tn a terrible destruction ol life." Sing Sing. City Intelligence. The Young Men's General Committee of the democratic party held a special meeting last evening at Tammany Hall, avowedly for the purpose of selecting a committee to receive President Tyler on his arrival in this city. Resolutions were presented, favorable to the renomination of Martin Van Buren for the presidency, which were amended, and debated upon until a very late hour, without any result.

(Correspondence of the Herald.] Uppkr Caufornia, Feb 12,1843. 'IIle United States Stjuadron in California?Fine Country?Fine Shooting?Fine Fishing?Fine Everything. Mr. Jamks G. Bennett:? Sim? 1 imagine you have never had a correspondent from the "Far West," though you may have thought you had many; in fact, you have not found out as yet where the far-famed "Far West" is. You now know, and so does Commodore Thomas Ap C. Jones, and the officers of his squadron, who have all been up here some weeks, supposing Santa Anna would keep his word, and declare war against the States; ihe Commodore took Calafornia for his share, when, seeing by the late Mexican papers it was not the case, he gave up the countrv to its former owners, in the same good order and condition I hat he found it During the time the vessels laid at anchor here, the officers spent their leisure time ashore hunting wild drer or dancing with th? tame dear, hoth being plentv in and about Monterey. For the officer who is loud of hiH gun. we have bears, drers, amall animals, geese, ducks, and a host of other birds; lor others there are salmon, in their time. What do vou think, of a salmon weighing sixty pounds, and other fish every day in the year"! We have plenty of seal, and even otters, whose skins sell here for forty dollars each. Then they can obtain plenty of the real hear oil, and even oil of sea otter, the same as is said to be sold in Boston and New York.' "Quien sube;" therefore those who go without hair on their heads, or mostachios on their upper lips, know the reason why; tell it not to the perfumers, &c. The flag ship, the old United States, "and may her shadow never be less," had a splendid band, to whose music the officers of Monterey and those from on board, with our ladies, had as many balls as I here were Sundays in the months, with waltzes, quadrilles, jotas. sons, arabes, bolero with casnnets. etc. Between Sundays, whenever a few officers happened to take a /hi sect on shore, each one could enjoy Ins favorite amusement; some who never danced before danced nere; some who never saw u wild deer before, shot one, and carried him on board,as anroofof his skill. Andnowthere is neither shot or ball for sale. " 'Twasacaution to deer who take mid-day walks." If they had known the contents of Santa Anna's powerfully written letter to Mr. Webster, they would have fled the track, and left so many Lieutenants and Midshipmen passed and to come, to enjoy their walks and rides without waste of powder and ball These things have

ended; so must my letter. While the Commodore was here, the Unbed States went and returned from the Sandwich Islands in thirty-one days, taking on board in Oahu, 1500 barrels ol provisions. Filty days is a very quick passage. Capt. Armstrong thought he could do it in forty-five; he did not hurry, not carrying much sail going or returning; J felt at home, when I went on board and found myself shaking hands with Capt. Armstrong and his officers. Again has this proud ship and companions lelt; again do I feel the void they have left behind The United States and the Yorktnwn are now on their way toCallao; the latter leaves lor home in all this summer ; the Cyane has gone to Santa Barbara, Sau Pedro, Mazatlan and Oahu, thence to California ; the Dale and the Ileliet are here, the latter bound to Callao; the Dale leaves us when the Cyane returns. I believe we are hereafter always to have a ship of war on this coast; it is much needed, and is a very good plan, unless the Secretary of the Navy wishes the ships to rot in the Port of Callao. Our trade is increasing; there is much American property on this coast; some of it has been taken antl destroyed. Forty or fifty citizens of the United States have been taken up, imprisoned in irons, and some of them put in the hold of a vessel; six, even eight men.chaint d to a bar of iron,and shipped out of the country without cause. Some died 111 Sn. lDas and Topic; some went on board other vessels in Sn. Bias and found their way elsewhere; a few found their way back to California, and have been trying to pick up their property ; I have read the Santa Fe history; it is nothing to the California affair. The Supreme Government of Mexico I believe often has regrets for things done by her officers at distant points, that she cannot prevent without taking measures not yet taken. What effect the taking of Monterey will have on her councils time will tell. She may demand satidaction from the United States for the insult offered to her flag; but is it possible, that the Commodore would be sacrificed to appease a nation, who has forbears committed so many outrage >us nelson American citizens. A Commandant in this country at one time imprironed (as above stated) fifty American citizens. The government in Washington in place of haviug him punished, has witnessecf his promotion by Mexico. When Commodore Jones had possession of Monterey not n man under his command struck even a dog belonging to the inhabitants, nor was one of them seen intoxicated There never wasfbetter order hsre. Schools. Friend Bennett:? From the remarks made at the Board of Educa tion at the meeting of that body on Tuesday evening last, and Irom the desperate feelings of the Public School Trustees in regard to the subject, it is evident that the attendance in the Public Schools is daily diminishing, while in the District Schoo s (those established under the act of April, 1842) the attendance is increasing immensely. Now, sir, in my opinion, these two conclusions may be safely drawn from the premises. 1st The public feel that something is wanting in the system of education in the public schools, which they expect to find in the new ones. 24 The public schools do not (Missess that amount of public sympathy und lavor that their managers contended they did, and, therefore, whatever system can gain that favor to the greatest extent, should deserve the greaier su;t))ort.
