to the " Conner and Enquirer," we must be excusec I we decline to attribute to any exclusively loft] feeling. It will not do, alter this, to apeak of the " Herald* but as the most |x>puiar and largely circulated jour nal in America. It is popular in the proportions its intamy and indecency.

What money gives to the miser, the ut teriy reckless man, no matter how imbecile ant ignorant, is endowed with by the party passion o America. It gives him what stands in the stead ol int'llect, of honesty, and virtue. The extraordinary influence of a great English advocate u*eo to be explained by the remark, that there were twelve Marietta in the witness box.

Tin- War of Opinion between Europe and America?The Newspaper Press. We commence to day, and will probably finish to-morrow, the publication of several strange and curious articles on the character, power, morals, talents, and influence of the American newspaper press. These articles have just a|>peared in several of the leading quarterly periodicals of England?the J^mdon Foreign Revitw and the Wutmintter Rcvinr, and are characterized by every quality and every folly of excited intellect. The " Foreign Quarterly" attacks, with an amusing ferocity, the whole American press and people?and the "Westminster" defends, in an especial manner, the "New York Herald." The whole affair is a most amusing ebullition of human intellect in passion?almost crazv to the verge of absurdity?but we must reserve our retnarkstill the whole is before our readers. One tiling is certain, the New York Herald appears to create as great a stir in Europe, as it does in New Yotk. Mr. Webstrr'3 SrtEcu.?The recently-developed policy of Mr Webster continues to create a arent deal of animated conversation and discussion, and has originated sundry very amusing and bijarre movements. The Wall street press, and indeed the Whig pepers in general, are just recovering from ihe paroxysms into which the Baltimore speech had thrown them, and begin to be very fearful of touching the matter at all. The Courier and other Whig org.ms say very little about the speech. But the most amusing?the funniest?the most euteitaining mistakes made in relation to this business* have been those perpetrated by that respectable organ of the Fourierites and Squashites, the New York Tribune. This concern had of a truth previously established a tolerably unequivocal reputation for oddity and laughter-provocative talent. In the present instance, however, the Fourierites have added greatly to their laurels. We were the first to give an impulse to this movement of Mr. Webster. We stimulated the public curiosity respecting it, and drove the blockheads of the Whig press into very amusing asthmatic exertions to present the speech to the public. Out of rivalry to us the Fourierites entered the field, with all the cabbages they could muster. This delighted us amazingly. It was precisely what we wanted. We wished to get Mr. Webster's speech before the read ere of that ridiculous sheet?the appropriate organ of ttie Sylvanun philosophy?we pricked the creatures on?for vegetable bipeds can be pricked, if you take the trouble to perform the process in the proper way?and they set to wsrk to report the speech, pretty much in the laudably emulous spirit of a black fiddler on the Five Points?who exclaims with a grin as he rozins his bow?"ugh ! massa, by golly thi? ere child's a goin' to beat Paganinay !" In this instance we permitted, with characteristic benevolence, the creatures to spread some sort of a report ol Mr. Webster's speech before their readers. We are [>erfectly satisfied with what they have done, and are more than ever convinced of our skill m making vegetables sprout?but the Fourierites have yet a great deal to learn, and it is really worth their while to study a little more attentively the decent ways of respectable society, deranged and corrupted as it is in this our day. They talked in a very amusing way yesterday about the relutive respectability and enterprise ot the Tribune and the Herald, but as Fourierism and falsehood seem to be necessarily blended in the organ, we shall take the liberty of stating the exact factB of the case. We stated on Saturday morning that it was owing to the presence of our re|?orter that the press was admitted to the dinner. The Tribune with the necessary meanness to utter a falsehood, but also the characteristic sheepislinttss which prevents it from going the whole length, insinuates that our statement was incorrect, j and credat Judaut modestly hints that to its reporter ?a very decent lad, we hear, and a worthy prottge of the equash philosopher, the press was indebted for admission. The facts are simply these. Mr. Webster, on arriving in Baltimore, expressed to the committee his wish that his speech would not be reported, and intimated that he would probably himself publish the substance of it at an early period. The committee of course acquiesced, and Mr. Lee, one of their number, informed our reporter of the fact. Our reporter immediately addressed to Mr. Webster the following note:? To tin Ho*. Das'l. Whitii81a? On my arnvrl in this city as reporter for the New York Herald. T mentioned to Mr Colem?n, of the Exchange Hotel, that the object of my vimt tii to report your ipeech at the dinner thia evening. On Wednesday morning. Mr. Coleman informed me that he bad seen several of the men*hers rf the committee, and that they would he happy to a.Iord me every facil.ty lor resorting the proceedings. It has just now been intimated to me that you do not wn j jour speech reported. Not being able to ascertain wh rther there U any formally organised committee, and no', knowing any other proper quarter to which to apply, under these circumstance*, 1 take the liberty of addressing yourself, lam confident you can havo noobiection to the publication ol a report of your speech, unless fram the tear of inaccuracy in the reporter. In order to obvi at* that, allow me to make this proposition?' shall write out my notes in time for them to be pat into yotir hands at h o'clock ,o morrow morning, and if, or inspection, you do not find them sufficiently accurate, 1 pledge myself not to publish them until they hare received your correc. tions. I am aware that you are very much occupied, and it is with eatreme reluctance that I thus trespass on your at tcntion. I truat, however, that your goodness will allow the circumstancea under which I address yon, to plead my apology. May I take the liberty ef respectfelly re. ijueatiug you to send me by the bearer, such reply as you may see proper t.? make 1 I have the honor to be Your obedient humble servant, JAMEU A HOUSTON. Kirmsnt Hotsl, Thursday?2 o'clock. Alter Mr. Webster had received this note, his pri vate secretary wailed on our reporter, and said to him, " We are very glad to find you here; we well know the reputation of the Herald for accurate reporting , the whole matter is now settled; Mr. Webater n> perfectly satisfied that you will do him justice ; but we must admit the other repor s ? ;vir wensier dm, however, directed me to request the Baltimore papers to copy from your report in the Herald." We therefore repeat it, it waa to the presence of aur reporter that the Fourientea were indebted for permission to attend the dinner. This we can substantiate in the most unequivocal manner. Mr Webster did not see our report till it was in print, as he expressed himself perfectly satisfied with the ability of the reporter, and when it ap^ared, he s|K?*e of its fulness and fidelity in very complimentary terms. The whole affair, however, is, on the part of the '/rifctme, a mere piece of moonshine?a substitution of .1 dry pieee of bran-bread for a whcaten loaf?a Fourierite vision instead of plain matter of fact. The real question is the truth, value, and tendency of Mr. Webster's speech. The Fonrierites know that the enlightened views, the accurate conclusions, the sound and liberal policy which it preseots, will slowly but surely sink into the minds of their readers, and produce m good time their abundant, wholesome, and conservative Iruits I Latml from China.?The fast sailing ship Ann ' McKim, Capt. Vasner, arrived last night from Can? ton, bringing dates from Macoa to the 13th ofFebruary. We have received our full files, but we f find nothing of importance to extract. | Accounts fiom Canton represent business there as excessively duli; in fact it had not fairly recorn, menced since the newyear holyduvs. No sales ol ' ini|>orts could be made, and about 150 chop* of teas remained unsold- There seems no likelihood of j anv chunge in dirieB taking place this season. ! We refer cur readers on this subject to the corrcs|H>ndei;ce between H. M. Plenipotentiary, and the Committee ol British merchants, front which they will ptrceive how difficult it is to furnish the information tequired from them by the Imperial Commissioner. H. E. Sir Henry iPottinger returned from HongKong in the H. C. Steamer Akbar on the 10th of February. ^r.C0l|ding t0 adyicesfiomChusan of the lstinst. Admiral Sir Wiiliani Parker was to leave thai island on that same day, probably on a visit to the intermediate ports of Fun chow-too and Amoy, as it is not expected H. E. will visit Hong-Kong before the return of Major Malcolm with the ratification ot the treaty. We have no other intelligence of any interest to give from the north. By the American schooner Zephyr, from Bombny lttth December, arrived at lloug-Kong 7th inst., the November Overland Mail lias been received. It is reported, and we believe on good authority, that a very numerous deputation oi the'people of Canton and its>icinity waited on the Imperial Commissioner Elepoo to urge him to expel the English from Canton altogether. The deputation, consisting chiefly of resectable people and men of influence, is said to nave met with a kind reception from the Imperial Commissioner. An edict from the Governor of Canton commenting in harsh terms on the acts of the English in general, and of II. M. Plenipotentiary in particular, is also said to have been published in Canton, and this time the document is believed to be authentic, and not forged as many former papers purporting to emanate from the same authority, undoubtedly were. Suppression of Piracy.?A question that urgently calls for the most serious and immediate consideration, is the extent to which piracy has lately increased in the Canton River and Islands situated on its Estuary, and which, if not'speedily checked, will very shortly put a stop to all intercourse, except in vessels of war, and has already obliged every boat that plies, to be armed and manned.for purposes of defence. The plenipotentiary is prepared to unite with the provincial government, in any plan that may be thought advisable, towards suppressing this evil, and he thinks that might be best done by simultaneous and preconcerted measures; the first stepol which, would be each of the governments sending two or three fast sailing and well armed boats, to c*uize against the pirates; the second, that the Chinese government should send Mandarins to the different islands to register and number the boats; the third, to proclaim that any boat found at sea, after a certain period, without a register and number, would be confiscated ; the fourth to warn all peisons Irom the present universal practice of purchasing passports from the pirates; and the fifth, from the Chinese government to visit all cases of [iracy, in which the parties mav he taken, with signal and instent punishment. As British ships of war. or vessels ringed in the European style are sure to alarm the pirate boats and enable them to escape, the Plenipotentiary is willing to purchase and fit out vessels of the build and rig of this part of China the moment a plan of proceeding is fixed upon, and the Plenipotentiary hopes, that even the most desperate characters would not long venture to show themselves against the combined efforts of the two governments. True Extract, Kichard Woosnam, Acting Secretary. Mr. Webster's Movements ?Mr. Webster did not return to Boston yesterday as he had intended Having heard that there was some fine trout-fishing down Long Island, he could not resist the temptation, but will proceed this morning probably down as far as Patchogue. A mess of fresh trout is delicious?better than the State Department at time*. Naval.?The United States brig Somers was at j Charleston on the 19th inst.. to sail tor Savannah and i the West Indies. Excursions and Watering Places in the Vj cinity of New Yohk.?These are the halcyon days of the whole year. Spring is now in its prime and beauty. The country never looked more charming, nor put forth more fascinations. To see and enjoy all, we recommend a visit to the following places:? Hoboken?For other reasons than being nearest, m?y be named first. Mr. John Ireland has a very neat place for ladies, gentlemen, and families. Mrs. Sweeney's Phcrniz Hotel is a beautiful place for a summer residence Statin Island?May be set down next on the fist. The Belmont House, at New Brighton, presents great attractions, and must not be forgotten. Bloomingdalk?Is one of the most charming valleys in the whole country. Burnham's is directly in the midst of its beauty. Prospect Hill?Is on the Harlem Railroad, two miles this side of Harlem. If you call at Nowland's Pavilion, you will see the most extensive prospec1 that can behad|jn all this region. New Rochelle?Is a little further off, but not the less beautiful. Fort Hamilton?Offers another delightful excursion. Stonington? Presents very strong attractions?an ocean prospect, the Pound, fishing, &c , See., and the best accommodations at the Wadawaneck House, Messrs. Blake and Reed. Fort Lee?Is a location that perhaps cannot be surpassed for salubrity and convenience?nine miles from the city, at the commencement of the palisades. It is a great place for military companies, and target excursions. Every accommodation can be had at the Pavilion, by Join A. Whitfield. Nihlo's Opera Fransais.?Last night a crowded tliootr* tout.f.oH ita jannrnhatinn nf mtiairal drama of ".Lei Memoirtt duDiable," which is rea'fy a splendid and highly interesting entertainment, and is announced for repetition this evening The dresses in the ball room scene were as elegant as varied, and the music is not the least charm of the piece. Mathieu, Le Court and Oternon played excellently. Every production of this truly talented company seems better and better appreciated than its predecessor. Mademoiselle Lagiere, "/-a Ja/neu.v rhantruieis to make herfitst appearance in New York to-morrow evening. Theatrical.?Mr. Grattan takes his benefit at the Park to-night, and appears in the character of Shylock. We have no doubt that the numerous friendc of this gentleman will testify ia a substantial manner their esteem and regard lor his character and talents. Mr. Trough's Concert.?The veteran Trough gives his grand concert to-morrow night. The merits of this celebrated vocalist are too extensively and favorably known on both sides of the Atlantic to need formal eulogy. He offers a singularly strong coalition of musical talent on this occasion, and he will have, most assuredly, a cordial greeting from a crowded and brilliant house. Chatham Taeatke?Ahasukrus.?This magnificent and gorgeous pageant was produced last night to an audience that filled the house. The piece is admirably arranged, and in point of scenic effect and representation, surpasses all the former efforts oi ibp manager, ana may ne saio 10 oc ine superlative of dramatic productions. It went off in extraordinary fine style, and received the enthusiastic applause of all who witnessed it. The characters too, are well cast. It is announced for repetition tonight, and we have no hesitation in saying it will have a run unparalleled. Military Garden, BrooklynMr. Hill, the Yankee comedian, gave a lecture at this place last evening, which was well attended. He will give another to-night, when the laughter-loving inhabitants of Brooklyn may enjoy a rich treat. Serious Accidint.?A man, whose name we did not learn, pawing along 5th street, near the corner of the 3d avenue, yesterday morning, fell into a well nearly fifty feet deep, by the caving in of the side walk as he was passing over it. Ropes were procured, and he was drawn out. He was seriously injured. Old TscrtMrn.?Col. Johnson haa bad an oration at ?t. I.onla. All parties united to givs him welcome Whin he left he wa? to pursue hia route homeward, through Indiana and Ohio Care of Commander Maekensle. Before the Hon. Edward King, President of the Firet Judicial District of Pennsylvania. Mat 30. 1843.?An application was mode to the Hon. Edward King, to coerce certain witnesses to answer under Letters Rogatory, from the Supreme Court of New York, requesting the Court of Common Pleas of Philadelphia County, to cause certain witnesses to come belore them, to answer certain interrogatories attached to the said Letters Dogatory, having lor their object the ascertainment frsm the witnesses, Captain Gwynn. and Commodore Reed (who are two of the members of the late Court Martial) the number of th? votes given for and against Capt. A. 8. iMackt nzie, on each of the charges and specifications preferred against him. The witnesses appeared, anJJtiled a written protest against testifying, insisting :? 1st. That there was ne adequate evidence that the sentence of the Court Martial had been approved by the President of the United States, without which their oatliB bound them not to testify. 3d. That ii there was adequate evidence, the Judge ought not te exercise his discretionary powers to compel them to testify in a matter (I) which might operate hereafter injurious to the service as a precedent; (3) hecause it dous not anuear that the testimony sought from them was relevant to the caiue pending in New York; and (S) became, under all the circumstances, it might be doubtful whether the Supreme Court of New York them elves would compel the witnesses to testify ; nnd in the argument, although not stated in the protest, it was insifcted tha? the suit was merely brought with a view to obtain the testimony. 3d. That the Letters Rogatory themselves were, according to the Statute Laws and Practico of New York, irregular. And 4th, that if all these reasons failed, yet inasmuch s this was an application to tho discretion of the Judge, these reasons would, if insufficient, separately be sutli cient, taken together, to induce the Judge to raluse to exercise the discretion asked for. In delivering his oral opinion, his honor Judge King somewhat inverted the order of these reasons, and commenced by observing u;>on the 4th objection, that although it was truo the application to him was made to the sound discretion of the court, yet, like all other judicial discretion, it was not to be exercised arbitrarily. It was a courtesy proper to be extended by all judicial tribunals one to the other, to aid in the administration of justice, and peculiarly to be regarded when made by the tribunals of sitter Mates. The several States ceuld not be regarded towards each other in this particular as foreign States? that the proper view was to regard the American people as one great whole, and to extend to the citizens of each State, as far as practicable, all the advantages which could he givea to our own citizens under our own lows. That such a course was, of all others, best calculated to maintain harmony between the several States, as well as between the citizens composing their communities ; to contribute to the perpetuity of the Union, and through that means to promote the work of civil liberty, which our Union was instituted to affect. After further remarks in me same spirit, ba concluded by observing that he lell himself bound to comply with the request of the Supreme Court of New York to its fullest extent, where such request was properly laid hefore him. As to the tirst exception, he remarked that it was a question of evidence, upou which he could entertain no doubt, from the proofs now before him. The proofs consisted, in part, of a letter from the Secretary of the Navy to Captain Maekenzia, informing him that the sentence of the court martial in hi* case had been affirmed by tha President, releasing him trom arrest, and directing him to consider himself as awaiting orders. That although the official communication in the "Madisonian" appeared informal, yet, taken in connexion with this letter, left no doubt in his mind upon the point; that therefore, on this ground, the officers composing the court were not pintected by their oaths from disclosirg the doings of the court when legally required. As to the second exception, the Judge remarked that however unwilling he would be to disregard the feelings of the officers now called to testify, or ta establish a precedent which might, in any way, woaken the naval aim oi the government, yet that he saw in all this no legal bar to the adduction of evidence to which a citizea is entitled under the laws. That in the administration of justice it perpetually happens thai individuals are compelled to testify as to matters which operate against their feelings; vet such a reason never avails against the rule which makes persons liable to testify in courts of justice; and all good citizens must yield their private feelings to the good of the community, as, in fact, a part of the price which is paid for civil liberty. And that however reluatant he ever would be,and no w is, to compel gentlemen situated as these witnesses conceive themselves to be, to testify, yet he could not regard the rules of law as of any value, if he were to hesitate to assert them in a case like the present. as to tbo relevancy of the testimony, the Judge remarked that it was a matter exclusively for the decision of tLe New York tribunal. That he was bound to pre- j sume that the questions propouuded were considered by , that Court as relaVant; that were he to undertake to regu. , late his discretion by adjudglamupon the relavancy or irrelevancy of questions attached to the Letters Rogatory, it would mako the benefit proposed to be derived by such ( letters, in many cases, totally illusory. That it was his . intention and practice in doing this, or any ether ju Jicial j set, to do it substantially and effectually; and this object ( would behest accomplished by leaving to the New York | iribunalthe solution of the point, whether the questions which they desired him to cause the witness to respond ( to, were relevant or not. That if, as has been said, this was an action brought by Captain Mackenzie for a scan- ( dalous libel against him, representing that he had escaped , capital punishment by the vote of a minority, and that mi- . nerity was produced bv the tenderness, or pity, of a sin- J gleindividual.it was of the utmost importance to him to ( prove what was the true number ot votes given upun ( each charge. Upon this view of the subject, the ques- , tions were not only relevant, but indispensable to the pro- ( per investigation of the cause. The Judge, however, | imagined that there might be a case in which the testimo- j mony would be so manifestly inapplicable to the cause ? f j action, as to induce him to refuse to coerce a witness to . testify, but that it must be a gross case indeed, that would t justify him in taking such an attitude towards thecourts f a sister State in tne exercise of an act ot comity. t As to the doubt whether the Supreme Court of New York would compel the witnesses to testify, it was a doubt ( to be resolved by that tribunal itself, and one which be ( had no sort of right to decide for thein. As to the idea that ( this was a mere fishing snit and not brought for the object which it purports, and merely intended to pry into , the doings A the Court Martial, the Judge observed, that if it could have been proved to hit satisfaction that auch was the true character of the proceeding, he would at once refuse to act in this case; for no one has the right to use the process of the law for any such purpose, aud he would not permit himself to be used as an instrument in the hsuids of ary man, or set of men, to accomplish such a result; and he was quite satisfied that neither tne Supreme Court of New York, nor any tribunal in tbe United States, would for a moment permit inch an abuse of their authority. But nothing in tbe case showed that this suit was any otner than a bona fiit suit, and his impression wssthat such was its true character. Tbe sole remaining question, and tbe only one on which he felt any difficulty, was, whether the letters Ro gatory were issued according to the laws, and practice of thecourts of New York- The result of his own investigations led him to entertain seme doubts upon that subject; and while he admitted that he eught, in general, to regard letters Rogatory under the aeal of a court, as plenary evidence of their regularity, yet still ho had como to the conclusion to defer the final decision of this matter, to give the witnesses an opportunity to present the question to the consideration ot the Su preme Court ot New York. That if it was true, as al leged, that these letters had been issued contrary to law, undoubtedly the Supreme Court of New York would entertain a notion on behalf of these witnesses, or of any other persons compromised by tbe issuing ot the letters,to quash the proceedings. Any court would do so in vindi. cation of its own dignity ; nothing being more repulsive to a court of justice, nor grosser outrage upon it, than tbe unauthorised use of its process. That such undoubtedly would be its action, aimilarly issuing from his own court. He concluded by declaring, that if the Supreme Court declined interfering, thereby recognising the regularity of the letters Rogatory, all hia doubts would be removpfl on that cuhipr.t t find thi? txMtn<*scos must mm# nrn. pared, ob next Saturday, to aniwer the iutenogatoriei attached to the letters Rogatory. After the conclusion ot the opinion, the counsel re. i|ueated his honor Judge Kent, to reduce it to writing to which he replied tbat he would comply with the request, if the pressure of his public engagements would enable him to find time to do to.

Appleton k Co. have just issued Mr. Carlyle's unique work on Heroes, replete with thought,biography,literature, and the connected history of the general topics, which is now re-published in a neat volume. It is one of the most striking and graphical works that the author nas issued, combining with all its wildness, in some respects like iis flighty theme, much that is original and exciting.

The TaOTTina Match between the horses Ripton end Ameiicus, two mile heats and repeat, for $1000 a tide, over the Beacon Courae, came oft yesterday afternoon. FiatT Heat?Ripton won the pole and kept the lend from the atait to the end of the heat, winning by but afew inchee, in 6m. 10a. Secopd Heat?Ripton had the pole, but broke up nearly simultaneously with the word " go," Americua taking the lead and the pole, which he kept until approaching the draw-gate ;on the last mile, when Ripton being a little in the rear, brake up and darted forward on the jump. Americua also broke, and tailing behin I Ripton, dashed forward aeveral anlkey lengths, and atriking for the pole, won the heat by about alength, in 6m. ijs- A dispute having ariaen aa to the violation of rulua by Ripton'a driver, in croaaing Air.ericua and taking the pole at the close oi the race, the Judges gave the heat to Americua. Thikd Heat?Americua took the pole and kept the lead a shoi t distance ahead, for nearly a mile Bnd a half, when c broke nnd llipton passed about two lengths on the lead, and then broke up. Americua closed the gap within a length, and waa kept at that diatance in the rear on coming out, Ripton winning the heat in 5m. 17a. Arrest or a Fuqitivb from Justice.?Theodore J. Marlin, who atanda charged with an aaaociation with Daniel L Patterson in obtaiuing several thousand dollars' worth of books, dry goods, groceries, dec., fr< m numerous llrms in Boston, by false representations, was arrested on Sunday evening by officers Gilbert, Hays, and Win. Ste. phens, and lodged in the city prison to await the requisition

of the Governor cl Massachusetts. The officers of police of our city and elsewhere have long been on the wakeofthis gentleman, and his arrest will no doubt give great satisfaction to the merchants of Boston who have been swindled by his practices. Cut his Throat in Prison?A man named George Stockman, who was temporarily committed yesterday at the city prism, while laboring under partial insanity, supposed to have been produced by intemperance, cut his throat with a pen-knile and stabbed himself several times in tho breast. The gash in the throat was about three inches in length, and extended through the ffesh part of the distance, slightly injuring his windpipe. The wounds are considered sufficient to produce death, ow. iug to the previous weok and diseased state ef bis body. Dr. Macomb, physician to the city prison, was imu.ediately in attendance and administered ever y relief to the distressed patient. Common Council. Boar* or Aldermen, Monday, Mar 22.?Present, Alderman Pitrdy, President, in the chair, and all the members except Alderman Bonnell, who is still absent by sickness. Puilit Printing.?A petition was received frem a number of citizens, in favor of having the pnblic printing done by contract. Referred to Committee on Laws. Private fountains.?The committee to whom was ro fprrptl (tin BnnliPtttinn of rnrfaiii riti'/nnfl fnr nopmiiiinn to erect fountains in Bowling Green and St. John's square, and other places, reported in favor of allowing one to be constructed in Bowling Green, at the expense of the ap. plicants, which is to be under the sole control ot the Croton Water Department. The application for permission to construct one in St. John's Park was not included in the report, as the Committee considered it private property, while Bowling Green belonged to the Corporation. Alderman Tii.lou moved that the report be sa amended as to include St. John's square. Alderman Lkk opposed it, on the ground that the square was not a public square. Alderman Waterman said he thought that each of these applications should stand by itself, as they presented entirely different points. The amendment was lost, by a vote of 6 to 9. Alderman Emmons stated that if the Croton water was allowed to be distributed free to all in the city, he should mpport the original resolution, but as he understood the water was scarce at times,he should oppose it. The original resolution was then adopted, by a vote of 13to3. The Fountain in tho Park ?A petition was received from C. Grey, to have the fountain in the Park play on Sunday, and every other day in the week, all day. Referred to the Croton Water Committee. Pitr JVb. 36.?A petition from the owner of one half of this pier, on the East River, and the owners of ships and vessels, to repair and extend said pier, was referred to the Committee on wharves.

Alderman Tillou stated that the committee had consilered it unnecessary to adopt the proposed amendment, to prohibit the appointment or men to office who were inrolrent in their pecuniary affairs. That this misfortune ofientimee befel men who were unable to avoid it, and there'ore they were no to be proscribed for such misfortune. He avowed that his object in preaentlng such amendment originally, was to prevent men from being appointed to nnhliA nlora Kb<) rnnon/loA he poor, and defrauded the community. He referred to :he caie of somebody who had treated the member* ol the ^receding Common Council, with an oycter (upper and ihampairne, for the purpoie of obtaining an ottlce, who ;heated the poor black man who auppned it, by afterward* aking the benefit of the bankrupt law. He asked if *uch i man should be appointed to a public office? He then ci:ed an instance ol seduction that had come to his knowledge while passing through the city prison, the victim icing only about 14 rears of age, and asked if the man that rail ruined her fair tame and reputation forever should be ippointed to public office ? He said his object in the inreduction of the amendments was alone to have men erected for public office, whose moral character an i virus would recommend tbrm to such place. Alderman Scolf.s stated thst he fully concurred in the ipiuions of the Alderman of the Fifth, and he believed that appointments had been made of men te office, who came directly under the proposed amendment of the Alderman, and he had before him a print in which the names of certain persons were published, coming within that amendment, and he intended to move for a res olntion of enquiry into tha charges.

Dear Bennett Yesterday was a beautiful day, neither too warm nor yet too cool The youth and beauty of our famed city formed themselves into parlies and visit* ed the delightful suburbs on the margin of the verdant Delaware and the banks of the sylvan Schuylkill. The steamers, both u,> and down the river, of which there were many, obtained a full complement of passengers ; and whilst we observed no unbecoming mirth or levity infringe on the solemnity of the Sabbath, yet the buoyancy of soul, so essential to health, and ao appropriate ia youth, beamed through every countenance. After a week's tedious confinement in the warehouse and manufactories of a large city, who will deny the hard-working mechanic the pleasure of engrafting upon the minds of his youthful family a just appreciation of the beauties of*nature?the works of the Subreme Being.? It Is not in churches and chapels alone that principles of morality can be inculcated. The reverse is too frequently thecase^ ^ ^ wiiuam t> uoran, rresiaent 01 me Jentereonian Temperance Society,was hauled over the coals at the police office this morning, for having indulged in a peculiar etvle of oratory, at a meeting in the market place last Friday evening. He denounced the whole body of tavern-keeoera in the city, as so many "thieves and swindlers;" and in consequence of this anathema a breach of the peaceensued, between the cold water legion and the disciples of Sir John Barleycorn. He was bound over to answer the charge of exciting a disturbance, at the next Quarter Sessions. A large batch of drunken and disorderly characters, of every sort and eize, were pulled up this merning, and were each und all very properly amerced in suitable fines for the gross irregularity. An interesting libel case was adjudged this morn ing. It was the affair arising out of some correspondence between Messrs. Monier and Knapp. The suit originated in a very indelicate manner. "Assignation houses," "doctor's prescriptions," medicines, cures, distempers, &c., were the ingredients. The case was unfit for publication- Judge Jones summoned up vety learnedly, and the jury returned a verdict for Monier, the defendant. The prosecution has the satisfaction arising from the fool of having to " pay the piper." Respectfully yours. Thorax.

M. The buainess at the stock board has been large to day, and prices generally on the rise. Kentucky 6's rose j, Illinois, 1 per cent.; Indiana, | per cent.; Ohio fi's 1 per cent.; Mohawk, 1 percent.; Harlem, 1}, Stonington, 1); L. Island, 1 per cent. At the new board the same degree of improved animation was exhibited. There were sales of U. States loan at 112}; Illinois Delafield bonds rose 4 per cent.; sales of Illinois caaal,81. The letters from abroad do not give much encourage, ment as to any movement in stocks. The disposition here is to let things take their course. The abundance of money is such that necessity for employment will keep stocks up for soma time. The same necessity may gradually send foreign capital here for investment. The Secretary of the Treasury recently gave notice of redemption of the Treasury notes. It is now understood that his views are to raise the means by issuing a five per cent stock, at a premium, which it is not improbable that he will get, although capitalists are not now disposed to give it. On tha other hand, an indication of the swelling tide of business is to be found in the fact that the inland insurance at many of the offices exceeds that of the foreign risks?a remarkable indication of the extent of the internal trade and the growing affluence of tbe Western States. It ii to be hoped that no more abortive attempt! will be mide to negotiate government stock* in Europe. The miaaion of Col. Robertson was ene of the most destructive to American interests that cauld hare been projected. It is stated that a half per cent premium was offered today for the Ohio 7 per cent stock. Let the contractors demand their stock under the law, and dispose of it themselves. If they trust any State officers or brokers, their interest will suffer. Demand the stock at once. The American Eichange Bank, it is stated, has subscribed to the Illinois loan $800,000, being the amount of canal bonds which it holds. There seems to be little doubt but that the remaining $1,800,000 will be taken up here and in Europe. In another column will be found the notice of the commissioners, to the effect that the books for the subscription will remain open at the American Exchange Back until further notice. It is stated that the Mechanics' Banking Association have lound their missing $4000 of specie. It was over paid to the Bank of New York. They ore very lucky; hut they had better take a fresh count, some more boxes may become locomotive. If the door is le't open, l>om of specie, like pig*, immediately spread all over the lot. The State Comptroller ha* notified the holder* of the United State* depoaitofnnd, of which a call of 3* per cent tru postponed to October, 1941, that tho?e who deiire to pay the initalment*, can do *o at New Orlesn*. The Commissioners of the Exchange Bank have filed in the District Court the tuSlrau of their proceeding* during the last twelve month*, by which it appears, that exclusive of apecie rcceiveil, they have collected $300,000 in the note* of the bank ; the circulation is consequently reduced by that amount. Since the public sale of Oa* Bank stock by the commissioners of the Bank of Orleans, the Orleans note* have fallen, and we now quote them M to M cent* on the dollar.
