We givma another column, a full report ot the J meeting held in Faneuil Hall last Friday, convened lor the purpose of giving Mr. Webster a public reception in Boston. It was furnished by our own re|K>rier, whom we despatched there lor the putpcee. The speeches and resolutions ol this nssemblsge, und those men comprising 'it, give the connfry some idea of the magnitude, respectability, aud importance ot the new movement, conceived in Boston and begotten in Baltimore.

This is the first powerful movement made leading to a dismemberment ot the exclusive and ultra whig party, and all its train of legislation on banks, tariffs, and land distributions, and the reorganization of new parties on new and comprehensive commercial systems that will restore peace and prosperity to the country. This movement has, in the first fortnight, attractted t^e attention ot the whole country, and of all parties The discussion has been taken up by the uewsp?|?er press, far and wide?and the journals of all pactions have actually woke uptnits importance. We shall notice these movements at large hereafter. Reporting ?The folly ol the "Tribune," in attempting to compete with us in in reporting speeches, and its falsehood in seeking to defame our efforts, are beginning to be well understood Almost every respectable paper throughout the country selects the " lie mid V report of Mr. Webster's speech lor publication, and gives us the due meed of praise. Among others, we find the following in the " Rochester Evening Po?t." Mr. Webster's Hritcn?" Niw York HmuLD'tt. the "Tribune."? We publish below the reply ol the'-New York Herald" to certain itatementaof the " New York Tubunw." W? had both re|>orU on our table at the Mtno tone, an I after a careful companion, decided on giving our readers the " Herald'' report. It was the speaking [>eech ol Daniel Webster. Tbe " Tribune"' report wa? a very gentlemanly, good sort of a concern, and doubtless contained the substance ol what Mr. Webster ktated, but the lauguaiie was that of the" Tribune" reporter, and riot Mr. Webster's. We have been delighted too frequently I'v listriiing t? the ((reat Daniel, not to be able to lorm some judgment on the matter. We could add many others, hut this is sufficient to stamp the Fourier concern with folly and falsehood, sufficient to supply a whole Fourier phalanx chock lull with these qualities of the new social system. The London Times.?This extraordinary journal, which |K)asesses a more extensive establishment than any other in the world, created no little stir in political circles some vears since,hv a sudden change of politics. On one day it was Whig, on the next Tory The price paid for the transmutation of this powerful engine was ?190,000 The advertisements of the Times, in a single day, trequMilly exceed $'1000,and every one is paid before insertion. Unlike the papers of this Continent, it lias 110 subscribers: it supplies the news agents, and they the public. There are two powerful steam engines on the premises, and the impression is made by double cylinder presses, lis circulation is the largest in the world ; there is not a town on the civilized earth, in which the Times may not be found. Itsreportera are to be met with in all th? quarters ot the globe, accompanying the expedition in China?and participating in the toils and dangers of the Indian campaigns. It lias correspondents til every land. Its expresses have traversed the desert. and anticipated the Indian Mails. Mr. John Walter, the late Member for Nottingham, is the principal proprietor, and lie draws from it yearly a revenue of ?80,000. It had formerly three regular editors, Messrs. Barnes, Liwson, and Delane, besides a large corps of occasional writers. Since the death of Mr. Barnes, this number has been increased.?Enghtk paper. Perhaps the next pa|?er, in i?oiut of magnitude, to the London Timet, is the New York Herald. By the return of the London stamp office, we know that the Herald has a larger circulation than the Times, and that it equally penetrates the whole civilised world. We may not have so numerous a torpt of editors, reporters and writers, but we are gradually growing in this respect, with the growth of New York and the increase of this country. Our reports, expresses, and original articles are equal in point of talent, to any in the Times, and have a far greater influence, because they are in favor of the popular movements throughout the world. We luve also two powerlul steam apparatus, one engine, four double cylinder presses, and six othei presses, on our premsses?and we are prepiring to erect an establisement for the manufacturing of our own gas lights, at about one-third of the expense we now pay. The great difference between the Times and the 1 lerald arises, however, from the difference in their political principles. The Times i?the great supporter of monarchical and aristocratic institutions and systems?the Herald is the supporter of republican institutions and principles. The former form of so< lety and government is gradually going down to decay and decrepitude?the latter is only in its inl.iuey and youth, with the prospect of a long and glorious summer of manhood and power. The issue c in easily be predicied Commercial Treaties. ?We call the attention of our readers to the "money article" in to-day's pal*r. It contains a view of the past and present commercial relations of England and the United States that will throw floodsof light on the proposed system of commercial tteaties. The statement has been compiled with great labor from the official reports of both countries, and may be relied upon tor its accuracy and comprehensiveness. Its conclusions, to every man of sense?every man of business?are sell-evident Here is a new policy devised and conceived, that will give, in time, the only permanent reliefto the States and the people, that may ever be expected.

Rear Sir :? 1 send you my rej>ort of the proceedings at the meeting held in Faneuil Hall last evening, lor the purpose of making arrangements for the reception of Daniel Webster, on his return to his home. The enthusiasm?the feeling?the unanimity manifested on this occasion by the large aad resectable assembly, I have rarely seen equalled. All felt as one I man, and it would be difficult to describe in terms which would not be regarded as exaggerated, by those at a distance from the scene, the electrical ellect produced on the audience by every mention of the revered name, and every allusion to the distinguished services of the man whom the meeting had assembled to honor. The speeches were, as you will perceive, singularly linnronriHte and ploniipnt Th??v p:<vh wnrfhv fi pression to the leelings which animated the au dience They must, 1 think, be read with pleasure all over the Union, for 1 believe that they do not contain one expression which can give offence to any man who loves his country, and is willing to render to exalted worth and talent the homage which they rightly claim. The movement of which the first public intimation was given in the great Baltimore speech, is, I find, the prominent subject of attention here. As you correctly stated the other day, it meets the most cordial concurrence of the influential men connected with the commercial and manufacturing interest of New England. 1 am, tec. J. A. H. TbeGrrat Meet lute In Fnm-ull Hall, Boston, on Friday la?t, for Hit* purpose of making arrangements for the Reception of the Hon, Jdanlel Webster. Agreeably to previous arrangements, a meeting of the Iriendsol the Hon. Daniel Webster assembled in Fanenil Hall on Friday evening last, for the purpose of making arrangements for his public rece|>tion on his return to Ins native city. At 8 o'clock the metting was called to order by Joseph T. Buckingham, Esq. At i his litre the Ilall was nearly hall filled, and the audience comprised most of the leading merchants and citizens ol Boston. Mr. Buckingham, in calling the meeting to order, said:?Fell?w{citizens, ihere are not quite so many [ ersons present us 1,and most ol us. I am sure, should nave been glad to see. But those who are here this evening may console themselves with the poetry of the pious Dr. Watts:? " Broad is the road that lead* to death, And thousand* walk together there ; But wisdom hows a narrow path, With here and there a traveller!" (Laughter.) [After the organization of the meeting a great accession was made to the |numbers assembled, and then, we presume, Mr. Buckingham found no reason to complain of the attendance ] The Hon. Martin Brimmer, Mayor of the city, was then chosen Chairman, by the loud acclamations ol the meeting The following gentlemen were then chosen Vice Presidents:?Robert G. Shaw, Edward Brooks, Jas. K Mills, Thos. B. Wales, James Clark, J. S. Sleeper. Secretaries?William Brigham, Philip Greeley. His Honor the Mayor, on taking the Chair, thus addressed the meeting:? We have assembled on this occasion, my fellow citizens, in this hall, not as is sometimes our wont, in the bitterness of party spirit, to make preparations lor a fierce political contest?to gird on our armour for the battle. But w? have come with calmiu-si hikI deliberation?free from all political excitement and party feeling?to this ancient and venerated hall, for the purpose of performing an act not leu grateful to our feelings than a duty solemnly incumbent. We have assembled to offer our respects'to a distinguished statesman?our fellow citizen? not especially because he has represented us with unwearying fidelity during five years in Congress, or that lor fourteen consecutive years, with consummate zeal, power and ability, he has supported the high interests of this State and of the nation, and defended the integrity of the Constitution in the Senatcof the. United State*. (Great applause.) But we have come together at this time and in this hall, to express particularly our high sense of the unsurpassed ability aud success with which he has directed the diplomacy of this country in its intercourse with foreign nations. (Thunders of applause.) We have assembled to express our high, our grateful sense ofthe prudence, the firmness, and the skill with which, nt a time of estrone financial embarrassment, he averted the niKBstroim BiroKe ?i wht which seemeu impending ovi'r our- head* by a single hair. (Deafening applause.) We have assembled to express our high sense of the coolness ?the prudence?the distinguished ability with which the treityof Washington was negotiated ?(Great cheering) ? setting! at rest, as we trust, for everj that long vexed question of the North Eastern Boundary,and placingupon the only safe and sure footing that difficult question ?the right ?f search and the right of visit. (Renewed applause.) By these deeply important services he has laid not us alone, but the whole country under the most lasting obligations of gratitude and esteam. (Loud cheers ) To make some effort at discharging otir share of these obligations, we meet this evening. We have seen that in the British Parliament that able and distinguished nobleman. Lord Ashburton, to welcome and to hooor whom we assembled not many months mo in this vary hal,? has received the unprecedented honor of a vote of thanks from both Houses by an unusual majority. And sh all we lie found wanting in the discharge of our duty on the return from success ul official labor, of our distinguished fellow-aitizen, Daniel Webster? (Thunders o' applause.) I say, on the return of Daniel Webster to the quiet of private life after one and twenty years of active p iblic service 7 Shall we neglect to offer him the homage of our respect and gratitude for the eminent services which he has rendered to his country 7 (Cries of "bo !" "no !" Hnd loud cheering.) For this puriiose we now meet ; and having thus brieflly stated tho objects of the meeting, 1 shall trespass no longer on your patience. But you will be addressed by other gentlemen, whom I know you are anxious to hear, md for whom I need hardly solicit your further snd deliberate attention. His Honor then took the chair amid loud applause. Chari.ks G. Lorino. Esq. then stepped on the platform and addressed the meeting. Mr. Loring was quite eloquent. He is rather a popular speaker, but his delivery is too hurried, and Ins manner somewhat disagreeable. He gave good utterance, however, to the feelings of the meeting, and was therefore much applauded. He spoke as follows:? Mb. Chairhux asd Fnn-owCmzicss :?We are assembled this evening for the purpose ol extending a grateful greeting to nn illustrious patriot and statesman, on his retirement Irom a life of most sucressfii) and honor. able labor in the service othis country; and to tell bimthat he comei heartily welcome to hi* home. (Thunders of applause ) I know ol no other occasion on which as citi. sent of Boston and of Massachusetts, we could convene withequal unanimity j with such unquestionable purity of metivt-,or with such laudable motives, and design. Admiration ot great ability, of steadfast devotedness to duty, of disinterested patiiotism, is an instinctive feeling of the human huart. It is most honorable to oar nature, that few of us cun refrain from feeling and expressing gratitude to those whose honest exertions have secured peace, respect, and honor to their country. (Urent cheering.) And so it must ever be. Men must always greet the return of public benefactors to their home, with expressions ol admiration and respect, if not with more permanent memo- ' rials of their gratitude. (Loud applause.) In past ages, most of those st) led public benefactors have been successful heroes -commanders of victorious navies and armies, and the wealth, genius and eloquence of the people for whom they havetought and conquered, have hern tasked to liirmsh tothem the insigniaof glory and the national exultation. I trust that a brighter page is to be opened in the history of nations ?that the cruelties of war and the glories of the sword? "JPlood bought and watered with the orphan's tears"? Are now to yield to the majesty of those eternal principles of justice and humanity, on which alone the safety and tru<- dignity of nations, as well as ofindividuals repose. (Enthusiastic and long continue 1 applause ) ? With no ordinary emotions I remind you,sir, and through you, this assembly, that the illustrious man whom we have now met to welcome home, has, with hit noble coadjutor?I call him "noble," sir, in the best sense of that word?noble in heait and mind, a? well as in rank and station?(applause)?hss been the first to illumiri'- this glorious page in characters of light, which, I trust, shall shed in all time coming, their brilliancy over the diplomacy of the civilized world. It is true, sir, that our fellow-citizen comes from scenes of bloodless strifa. He brings no trophies from the battle-field to feast the exulting eyes of o catien?no standards cap tured from vanquished host*, with which to decorate our ball* and feed onr national vanity. But he cornea from the equally, nay, the harder and longer contested fields of legislation and diplomatic conflict. He cornea hearing aloft the banner* of civil liberty and roaititntional law, which he hat ho bravely upheld and *o (irmly tiomefin ma ny a drN|iei ate tight. He come* with the fligol Iiis conntiy waving over hi* head more triumphantly than ever. Imm the fresh acci-nnion* he ha* made to its honor anu renown in the dirintereited vindication of his country's rights and liberties, and the profound exposition he has given of those principlesof international law,in support of which I trust that flag will be forever consecrated. (Thunders ol applause.) He come* to us, returning (rom a life of long and honorable and most successful service in the cause of bis country, and we?we who have witnessed his sacrifices and hi* toils?we who have long enjoyed the honor reflected on us by his patiiotism and learning, a* his constituents?and we who have shared >o largely in the benefits of the fruit of his public services,are met here to fulfil the grateful and natural duty of welcoming him on his return home Were it in my |iower, sir, nothing should give to me the sa'isfaction that I should enjoy in delineating his character and his services, and in holding him up, the true model ol on American Statcsman and an American Patriot. (Oraat cheering.) But I cannot. I have not the geniH* nor the Uill to design, much less to execute, the perfect statue before which the garlands of a nation's love would tie gratefully flung. My humbler and more fitting duty is simply to construct tha pedestal on which the statue may be placed; it is merely to lay before yen the acta of his public life. An humble duty, indeed, but it is otter ing the materials for a noble monument which must for ever stand firmly and high on the beaitsofhis countrymen. (Thunders of applause.) Before I proceed, Mr. < hairman, to allude to the service* of Mr. Webstar in the national councils, permit me to remind this assembly or one most essential service ho baa rendered to our toloved Common wraith. Those oi ut who remember the debate* in I8i* for the amendment of our Constitution, will well recollect the untiring zeal and fidelity with which Mr. Webster defined and illustrated the great conservative principles of the Constitution of Massachusetts, the profound forecast and discretion with which he liefended them from the insidious attacks made from some quarters, and the sound judgment with which he assisted in effecting those modifications which time and experience showed tone necessary And I detract nothing Irom the learning, and the patriotism of the moat eminent members ol that noble assembly of men, when I say that none surpassed Daniel Webater,although then but r new citizen amongst us, in his zeal, patriotism, and fidelity. (Great applause.) The first great public act of Mr. Webster, sir, was the introduction into Congress in 1816, while he was member from New Hampshire, of his resolution, relating to the collection of the revenue of the U. States? This resolution required that hereafter the revenue should las paid in the currency of the Union, in specie or the bills of specie paying banks. That resolution passed both Houses and was permanently useful in correcting the disorders and distresses info which the nation had tieen thrown by the depreciated state of the currency, at that period. 1 look heck^on that hour, and everyone who has watched hit career will look back 011 it, as the signal 1 gnu of that war, which from that time till now, he has eve?y where waged against a depreciated currency. (Great applause ) Ami at all times, and in all circum- 1 stances, he has contended for a circulating medium lound- | ed entirely on a metallic basis (Cheers ) The inllucnce I of the measures or of the acts of an individual, sir, upon 1 the currency ol a nation, are of necessity so intermingled with others?so naturally imperceptible ol themselvis ? that it is difficult, it is hardly possible to shadow forth in 1 inu'i rrii?'i?iu \ iiiihuiio" iuiu mu^iuic uiiw ?rpiair r.\n i tence, the effect produced ?>y any one man. But 1 hazard 1 nothing in saying, that no man in the United States of America has done so m'ich as Daniel Webster has done to enlighten the public mind on this great and difficult subject?to disseminate throughout the country accurate and sound views on the currency? nnd to give action to those just views now so rapidly growing throughout the land, and which, I trust, will soon remedy those evils which have oppressed us, but which, had it not been for his efforts, would have oppressed us for years, if not for centuries. (Great applause.) The next remarkable aet of Mr. Webster's public life was performed while he was repre. sentative from Massachusetts, in his celebrated speech against the tarifl proposed in 1914. He opposed the tariff then, from a conviction that it was hostile to the interests , of the commercial |>ortion of the community, and that the prosperity and rapidly advancing interests of the coun try had hotter remain untouched. And because also he feared, and justly feared, the introduction into this coun. try of this tat ilf might create the evils which have accompanied that system in England and throughout the populous countries of Europe. [In consequence of an inter, ruptiou by a person who came to the reporters' table, and asked soma question, we did not catch the two or three succeeding sentences of this speech. We have just called ou Mr. Loring and requested him to sup. . ply the hiatus?but he very politely says?"Oh! you can't report my speech?and, besides, I'm very busy." We must, therefore, goon from the point where the disagreeable interruption ceased ] We have seen that he stood by it in the darkest hour of our history, in opposition to the most powerful of his political friends; and when his opposition to their measures threatened to him a ereat portion, if not the whole of his personal popula* rity and political influence. No man can forget his position at the time of the passage of the compromise act; or, j if any man hos forgotten it, let him go back and read the ] history of this time, and then, when he has read it, let him ask what Mr. Webster proved himself to be then? whether he was less than a political prophet. Why,the very principles and measures, which he then, in face of his party and his friends, opposed as being essentially destructive to the tiue interests of the American system, have been themselves abandoned at the very moment when it came into operation. (Cheers.) And, now, let me ask, without detaining you longer on this, if we cannot trust such a man to defend these great interests?a man who has proved himself capable of comprehending all their relations, and has proved at every time and place that he has courage and manliness enough to defend them 1 (Cheers.) I say, if we cannot confide to him thrse great interests, in the name af heavrn to w hom can we confide them ^ (Long continued applause.) I pass by Mr. Webster's celebrated speeches on the manumission question, merely remarking that they afford additional demonstration of that unilorm devotion to the great cause of civil liberty, and humanity, and public faith, by which his career has always been distinguished. I now invite your attention for a tew moments to the next great event of his life?for great it may be truly cnlled, and but lor the treaty of Washington, would be accounted the great achievement of his public service, and might well be deemed thefcrowning glory of his public life. The doctrine of nullificatioH has now become so universallyregarded as a jiolitjcal absurdity, and nonsensical chimera, that we can hardly realize the terrific form with which it at onp time reared itself, overshadowing the land,and threatening the dissolution of our Union, and the prostration of all our institutions. It grew up as we well know now, under the patronage and encouragement of some of th e most powerful and eminent states, men of the age. It enlisted the sympathies of a great j>ortionof the Southern community by appeals to State pride and State prejudices, supposed local interests, and above all, by pretences ol defence against the North. No event since the formation of the Constitution of the United States has so forcibly shaken the fabric on which it s'snds ns the promulgation of the doctrines of nullification? None has everithreatened our Constitution and our Union with such a deadly destruction as that monstrous theory; | and lor a scries of years, Webster csme lorth as the great , champion ot the Union. By the fotceof bis single arm. ] he laid that monster low. He drove it from the halls of Congress, hack to its native lair, and returned himself victorious. (Qreat cheer ing.) It rallied its forces intoSouth Carolina in defiance of the laws, and of the Constitution. He again came to the rescue, and was the chief agent under the administration of Oea. Jackson in dealing its lost and final deathblow. I cannot avoid sifting the attention of this audience to Mr. Webster's disinterested patriotism and devotion to the country iu this case. It will be re membered that the "Force Bill" was a favorite measure i of Gen. Jackson's administration?an administration to ' which Mr. Webster was strongly and entirely opposed i from the beginning, and from which he had received nothing hut unmeasured hostility, reproach and abuse ? It might have seemed natural, and to many politicians undoubtedly would have seemed expedient, that Mr. Webster would have united himself to tbat strong Southern confederacy then led by Mr. Calhoun, ami supported by a powerful force in both Houses, in opposition to Gea Jackson. Such a policy a short sighted and selfish politician might have adopted. Such an one might have sought to make out of the mutual inluries inflicted on both parties, capital for himself; but this was not the narrow policy of Daniel Webster. He sa<v that the great cause of the Constitution and the nation was involved in that struggle. He therefore could not hesitate. He at once threw himself into the hottest of the battle, regar.Hess of csnsi quence.s to himself and the great party of which he w as the leader, if otherwise he could not save the ceuntry. And when as the favored ally of Gen. Jackson accomplished the victory, he came not hack to ask favor of that administration w hich ho had so signally served. He sent in no adhe- i sion to the powers that were. He made no pretences of reconciliation; but again he took his place and pleaded as faithfully and as resolutely as ever against the mea sures and act* of that administration. (Cheers.) Thus he evinced as in so many other acts of his life, that devotion to his country?that pure, unsullied, unfading patriotism which alone can account for his action during nil whole career: and by which his entire public life has been so signally illustrated. (Cheers.) I come now, sir, to a very interesting period in his history, and that of our country. The satisfaction with which we all hailed his position in the cabinet of President Harrison, and the griel and anxiety we found in the death of that illustrious patriot, need not here be recounted. They are quite too lresh in our minds, and the confusion, ds'rkness, distrust, uncertainty, and anarchy, which prevailed in the councils of the country, alter the accession of President Tyler, are still before our eyes. I cannot imagine any position for a statesman more rainful, distressing, and perplexing, than that of Mr. Webster on the retirement of nia colleagues from the cabinet. Of the propriety of that retirement I never did and never shall make any questionBut we all know that Mr. Webster's continuance was a subject of intense anxiety and doubt to his best friends, and a theme of much indignant reproach from many lormerly his most xea'ous adherents. And let me remind you, that it threatened to alienate from him the afflictions of that great party, in whose service he had fought during his whole public life. (Applause.) Vet he remained firm and unmoved in the consciousness of performing his duty. His patriotism was equal to the trying and painful exigency. He knew that it was his duty to remain there, seeing that there were interests of transcendent importance to his country under discussion and awaiting a settlement. He knew that the great issue of pease or war between two of the mightiest nations or the globe mus' soon bv determined. He knew that great and vital questions of international law must soon be discussed and settled. He knew that he had made preparations for entrance on these'great questions. He knew that peculiar and personal advantages, not always |wnpnr to he enumerated, rendered himself peculiarly qualified for tha discharge of the urgent duty which presented itself. And therefore, he concluded to remain at his post?to abide tha " pelting of the pitiless storm" of the preas and the people?to abide the temporary alienation of his friends, and to trust to time for the discovery ofthe purity of his motives aod the honor of his conduct. (Great applause) And here let me ask, sir, if there is a man within these walls ?if there is a man who has an American heart in bis bosom within the limits of the United States, ran lay his hand on that heart, and say that he dors not thank God that he was satisfied with the result of that disinte. rested determination? (Tremendous applause.) Time forbids, sir, any more than n very brief allusion to his labors while in the cabinet. Indeed, thay need no comment. His acts speak for themselves, in language which seems to defv the jiower ot exaggerated commendation Whpihpr WA look a! hit ililritaiinti nf th*? imrniinitic.q n( citixmm acting under the orders of their government*? or of the doctrine of imprisonment?or of the right of visit and search?or ol the various other questions included in the treaty he negotiated, we see everywhere, and in all of them a profound |>erception ?a prudence?comprehensiveness ot conception?an ability ? learning?patriotism ?genius?an I eloquence, most honorable to theceuntry, and most honorable to himself. In the result of that nego tiation we And the triumphs ol humanity and reason ? the complete vindication at tho same time of the rights of the nation with whose interests he was so fortunately entrusted. (Cheers.) Sir, the coadjutor of an illustrious statesman has returned home, fie has received the thanks of his country. In all this we rejoice and cordially sympathir.e. Ami shall we permit our representative in mat great work .to return from the scene of liis active labors and his glory,without a national welcome 7 ("No," "no," and cheers.) Sir, it may he, and I fear it will he, that no Congress of the United States "an he loiind with sense sufficient of its own truo dignity to render to Mr. Webster the reward rendered to his noble coadjutor on the other side of the Atlantic. Rut we. ss citizens of Be*ton, and of Massachusetts, cannot be silent. The very stem r in our streets would cry out shame upon us, if we should permit him to return without our expressions of gratitud. (Cheers.) We will not be silent. These walls shall ring with the name of Daniel Webster, and re echo throughout the lan ' the loud insurance that here, at any rate, there are people who know and appreciate his woith?that there nre here men who are grateful for his services, ami men with hands and hearts in them ready to grasp his with most cordial welcome to his and to our honre 1 'Most enthusiastic applause.) 1 hold In my band, Mr. Chairman, |a series of resolutions prepared by ome gentlemen, which they supposed might be expressive

(Deafening appiause.) ItesolveJ, That from all Itio pastof Mr. Webster's life, ive derive the assurance that he will approve himself qunl to every call ol future duty; that great tasks of pauotic statesmanship remain for him to perlotm ; thnt imong these, of the highest, most difficult, and most urgent, is the wot k of attempting to restore the currency, o uphold the credit,and reconstruct the commercial relaions of the country, and to secure to American industry, in all its forms and in all its fields, harmonized, adequate, and steady protection; and that we trust yet to see this jrand remaining labor rewarded by a still wider usefulness, aad crowned by a still more desirable fame.?(Long continued cheering.) Resolved, That a committee of seven be appointed to communicate these resolutions and the proceedings ol his meeting to Mr. Webster. J.T. Btkvsns, Ksq., seconded these resoluions in an inimated and eloquent speech. He is a very agreeable ipeoker, and much more pleasing in his manner than Mr. Loring. There was a natural and unaffected grace and ipirit in his style, which were quite refreshing. After referring, in a complimentary manner, to the speech of he individual who preceded him, and stating that he really could not restrain his feelings, and was therefore mpelled to address the|meeting, Mr. S. went on as follows:? We all know, sir, that when Daniel Webster went into ;he office of Secretary oi State, that the foreign relations >f this country were in a very precarious situation, and embarrassing to the commercial enterprizes of all piudi nt men. The value of Mr. Webster's services in placing hese relations on a peaceful and settled condition is in .aicuisiue. uiniug nis ruuiiauuii wiui mr .l iuiniimi n ion, and since the death?the lamented death of Prcilent Harriion, his master mind hai grappled wi'h wmn if the most important question* which can bo foun.l to hear on the real interestiof people. He hat overcome difficulties in Washington which At one time seemed insuperable. Ho has cleared away from these questions the rubbish which had been allowed to accumulate over them for years; and laid the real issues bare and open to the public eye. He lias wrought out and completed that master-piece of American statesmanship?the treaty ot Washington. (Great applause.) If the settlement of the north-eastern boundary question had been the only public act of that great man's life, it would richly entitlo him to our gratitude for the peace that he has preserved tous. And the result of all hii negotiations with Lord Ashhurton entitles him to the expressed thanks of every man, woman and child in the land, for the solid foundations which ho has there laid for the permanence of that peace between two nations which never ought to lee at war. (Cheers) Had he not at onu point of affairs directed his aim above all party considerations? had he iympathized altogether with friends?who, thank God, itill fully sympathize with him?(Great applause-)?had le not remained at Washington till ha finished that work, t cannot be believed that we should now have been able o stand here this evening with our national and coinnercial prosperity as it is. And shall not the citizens of Boston thank him? ("Yes," "Yes," and great ap iluuse.) No party, sir, can appropriate to itselt he results of his labors. They belong to the sountry, and to tho whole country. (Thunders oi ipploum.) We sometime* hear men and see presses callng on Mr. Webster to "define his position," and to tell us what platform ha stands on. Sir, the position of such ii man as Daniel Webster is always defined Hit aclt Atline hit pa ti linn. (The applause here was absolutely it-o.feuing, and exceeded any demonstration of feeling we have ever seen at a public meeting.) I say, sir, his acts define his position, and ins pla'form i.? his country. (Thun.1 ? ? ?f ov.nlotiafl \ Vf T cani 1 .*1 ex si 1a e cn w* <i rvi inn uc.

(This allusion was received with tremendous enthusiasm ) On motion of Thomas B.Curtis, the committeeof seven provided for in the last resolution, was filled by theeliction of th* following gentlemen: II. U. Otis, Patrick T. dsckson, William Sturgis, Charles P.Curtis, Nathaniel Hammond, Francis C Gray, ard Jonathan Chapman. BrsJAMis T. Rkm>, Esq., after a short end spirited speech, offered the following resolution, which was unanimously adopted : Reinlveit, That the same committee be instructed to invite Mr. Webster to a public dinner in this hall, or to meet his fellow citizens in such manner and at such time as will be most agreeable to himself. Three terrific cheers were then given for "Daniel Webster," and the meeting dispersed. The new District Attorney.?The County Court convenes to-day at twelve o'clock, in the chamber of the Board of Aldermen, to make the appointment of a new District Attorney for this city, in the place of Mr. Whiting, who has resigned the office. This appointment is one in which the people of New York have a deep and abiding interest. All the criminal prosecutions arising in our city, with its [>opulation of three hundred thousand, must be conducted, on the part ol the people, by this officer; and hence the.'importance of selecting a man to fill the station who is qualified, not only as being a sound and able lawyer, but he must also have great moral firmness, and the most ^unbending integrity. As a lawyer, he should be able to contend 'successfully with the combined talent of the New York bar; OinerwiHf" intr aumiiiisuaiiuu ?>i inmiuai justice trntrusted to his care will be weak and inefficient; and his integrity should bejfirm, unbending and impregnable, for it will be assaulted by the machinations of all the rogues who are brought before our criminal courts for trial. We trust that a good selection may be made, whoever he may be. Concerts this Week.?Thi* evening is Sig. T. Lacarcel's concert, at Washington Hotel. Signor Lacarcel is prolessor of the guitar, from Spain. He will be assisted by Mrs. Loder, Timm and Ernst. To morrow evening Mr. Dem[ster and the Misses Camming give a concert at the Society Library. It will be a rich entertainment, and thedi3eived reputation of the performers must draw a lull house. There is perhaps nosweeter singer in the world than Mr. Dempster. Thursday evening Sig. Paggi gives his last aud only concert in America. He is very superior upon the Oboe, ol which instrument he is professor. He will be aided by Madame Sutton and other distinguished performers. Another Revolution in Texas.?According to the late news from Texas, which we have published, there is at present a very strong probability of another revolution in this new republic. Commodore Moore mid Sam Houston Beem to have become hostile rival*; but the popular feeling sets so strongly in lavor of the lormer, that it is very |w>ssible Houston may get kicked out ol Texas altogether. There is little likelihood ol Commodore Moore being molested by any foreign power. Sain Houston passing sentence of outlawry against Commodore Moore, i? something like Martin Luther passing sentence of excommunication against the Catholic Church - not likely to produce much effect. Naval.?The IT. S. ship Marion, Com. W. M. Armstrong commanding, arrived at Norfolk on Friday, in seventeen dayu from ft. Thomns. She has brouehf home ail composing her crew, with a single exception. . The Marion has on hoard eleven m^n l iken Irom the ship Metoka, whom she ba? brought home to he tried lor mutiny.

( More Counte*eeits?That old dealer in counter'e t , money, Elizabeth Campbell, was arrested on Saturday , for passing a five dollar counterfeit note of the Otsego f County Bank, on Oeorge Van Bremen, of 74 Suttolk street. , She left the note with Van Bremen, in exchange for one ? on a city bank, and promised to return a good note in the 1 evening, il the other proved to be bad. On inquiry, it 1 proved to be worthless, and Campbell not returning, she t was sought after, and attempting to snatch the counter- ( fait note, wasarreatad and fully committed. , Attempted Assassination.? Keating F. Lawrence, in company with a young man named Richard Cunningham, having arrived in the evening train from Thiladel- i phia, on Saturday, took lodgings at the Carlton House, t and knocking at the outer aoor for admission about one i o'clock in the morning, seme delay was caused before the watchman, I'eter R. Kortier could open it. On entering Lawrence found fault with Fortier for the delay, when , words ensued between them, and Lawrence raised his cane to strike Fortier, when the latter seized it and attempted to break it or wrest it from him- At this moment , Cunningham, who was being lighted to his room by jamei miey, capinet matter 01 me notei, rusueauomi the steps toward* the combatant*, and commenced rolling up hi* sleeve* to attack Fortior. A* he wa* advancing toward* them, Fortier seized him by the collar, win n Cunningham drew a Spanish dirk knife from liiacoat pocket and (tabbed Fortier in the back, near the margin of the right shoulder blade. Lawrence immediately (eparated them, and the Mayor, who has room* at the Carlton Heuse, ordered Cunningham to be sent to the City Prison, where ho wa* kept until examination on Sunday morning. Dr. A. K. Hosack, M D-, examined the wound, and stated before Justice Meiritt, that the knife had extended two or three inches into the muscular stiucture of tho margin of the right shoulder blade, but did not think it dangorous or calculated to jeopardize the life of Fortier. The testimouy of Fortier was taken at the house where he lies, and bail in the sum of $*1,600 being given by Cunningham, he wa* discharged until the ( meeting of the sessions. Cunningham in his dress and appearance resembles Henry A. Wise, and appeared at theipolice office in a guifl elastic Mackintosh coat, a grey slouched hat of the recent fashioa, and a head oi auburn hair, that bung in streamlets, not ringlets, over bis shoul- 1 ders. He took the whole matter before the police with great composure, and with the advice ol his counsel, David Orrham, Esq., refused to answer any questions put by the examining cleik. Caught us the Act?On Friday evening, as Tobias Wynkoop, clerk for John McKene, of 60 Sixth Avenue, was opening the store, a black fellow rushed into the street, but was caught and searched, when $3 in money, 100 scgars, several plugs of tobacco, and the key of the cellar door, that had been stolen several weeks since, were foundon his person. These articles being identified as having been stolen from the premises, the rogue was fully committed under the name of John Henry Johnson. Jealousy and Attempted Murdkb.?On Saturday evening, John Lawrence and Matthew McCaffrey, residing at No. '1 Hamilton street, met at French's Hotel, corner of Monroe and Catherine, and a dispute ensuing between them, caused by tho jealousy of McCaffrey for supposed liberties with his wife on the part of Lawrence, the latter drew a penknife and stabbed McCaffrey in the back, below the right kidney; under the nose so as to divide the cartilage at the end; also a severe flesh wound, six inches in length, on the right leg, and a fourth wound onfthe false rib, nearly two inches in length. The injuries are all severe, but not dangerous. The parties were both iutexicated, and Lawrence denies that he done ought hut strike the wounded man with his fist. McCaffrey's wife, after assisting Dr. Macomb in dressing the wounds of her husband at tho City Prison, tendered her aid to Lawrence by procuring lum a clean slnrt, and other little nick nacki for his comlort. PicTr.R Do?hs Escai-fd ami Cauoht?That old rogue, " Pete Dobbs," who was sent to the Penitentiary a few weeks since, on conviction for a petit larceny, escaped on Thursday last, and yesterday, Deputy Keeper, Michael Willertdorf, traced him to a place n Water street, and with the aid of otiicer Beckley, lodged him in the City , Prison, to be sent back to the Island. If any of the boys on the Island can keep out of Mike's scent, they are en> itled to the remainder of tlieir sentence. DuorriNu as Infant.?On Saturday morning two men callrd at a burying ground in the upper part of the city, i and deposited a coffin containing at female infant, for burial. On being informed that it could not be interred without a certificate trom a physician, they immediately hurried off, aaying that they would obtain one, and re- , turn. Failing to perform their promise, the coroner was sent for, and upon examination of the l>ody, the jury returned a verdict of death from natural causes. Scholars About.?Yesterday morning jabout daylight, as officers Joseph and L*unst>ury were on the look out for midnight prowlers, they discovered a man making preparations to enter tne dry goods store of John Hays, 369 Broadway, and allowed him to progress in operations until he had forced open the door with a piece of iron, that he used as a lever. They then secured him, aBd lodged him in the Watc^^^u, where he gave the name of John Hays, and from be was committed for ex amination. Lateand Important from Port au Prince ?By the brig Fai rfield, Capt Smith, which arrived last night, we learn there has been a reduction of duties in all the ports on the Island, of one half on the following articles:?Beef, |?ork, flour, rice, codfish, lard, butler, mackerel, and herrings, in the ports of Port au Prince, donaives, Cape llnytien, Port au Piatt. Aux Caves. and the citv of St. Dominzn.? The following articles are free?boardp, planks, scantlings, shingles, nails, tiles, flagging stone, paints, locks, hinges, and all articles such as are used in building houses. Vessels are not |>ermitted to go to only one port on the Island, to discharge their cargoes, but can goto other ports to take in their outward cargo. This took eflect on the 10th. _____ Movements and Doings.?The Hon. Daniel Webster arrived from Long Island on Saturday evening, at the Astor House, where also Mr. Cushing at present remains. Mr. Webster is expected to leave for Boston either to-day or to-morrow. Lady Bagot and family, five servants, Capt. Bagot, and ('apt. Colmondelly, from Canada, arrived on Saturday evening at the City Hotel. The remains ol Sir Charles Bagot are m route of the canal, and will shortly arrive. We perceive among the numerous arrivals at Howards', the names of Gov. C. Paine, from Vermont; Ex-Gov. Dickerson, of New Jersey; Mrs. Col Churchill and daughter, and Lt. W. H. Churchill, of the navy. North River Racing.?We havo received a number of letters from passengers on board the Empire, and the Curtis Peck, complaining in no measured terms of the danger and annoyance incurred by them in the racing of these boats. They say that no one one board Jdares to go to sleep, but that all are constantly in the fear of lieing blown up or sunk to the bottom. All we can say is, that if neither the owners nor the nnblic authorities will put a stop to this racing, the travelling public must patronipe boats that do not race. Common Councii..?The new democratic Council meet this evening. Instead of devoting all their time to the appointment of corporation officers, will they please to remember the shocking condition of the streets, some of which have scarcely been swept within the memory of the oldest inhabitants? also the shamelul and injurious waste of Crotou water?also the Park |?ond?and don't forget that we have had no police reform yet. Will Alderman Purdy take off his coat and go to workl Nibm>'s Tiikathk ?On Saturday night the performance commenced with the overture of "La iVluette de Portici," which was played in the most finished style by the orchestru, calling forth the loudest plaudits from the audience. The curtain then drew up to a drama vaudeville, in five acis, by Deunery, called "La Perle de Savoie, on la Grace de Dieu," in which Madame Mathieu, M. Bernard, M Dessonville and Buscher, (the first appearance of the latter,) sustained the principal parts. Mademoiselle Maria personated the heroine (Ma- i rie) with infinite grace and mnvetljr. We cannot forbear mentioning Hgaut the acting of Madame Mathieu, as Madelaine, which lully bore out the favorable opinion we have already expressed of that lady. This evening Mademoiselle Calvf-, the sweet songstress, will appear for the second tune, as Hen- < rietie, in L'Ambaasadrice; and attain do we expect anoiher crowded saloon to hear the charming prima 1 donm of the opera Franrait. Again will the uncq jul'ed orchestra execute the delightful music of Auher. ^ ^ Mr Ntblo, by the engagement of Mademoiselle Cnlve, evinces I hat Ins intentions to give us an opern, lull and complete in every department, are serious, and we ho|>e that a succession of such houses as last Friday, will reward his taste ami energetic endeavors to provide for the gratification of th public in general, and the lovers of music in p tit cular.
