IVEW YORTTHEKALD. fc"aw York, U'rilnrmiij, May 31, IMS. Herald Literary l>?po(. All the new and cheap literary publications of the day arr for talc, wholesale and retail, at the Hibald Oinn, Eorthwcet corner of Naaaau and Fulton street. IC7- 8ie?< mstBschaiiging their residence, will please notily at this ottice, corner of Nassau and Fulton streets, where they want the Herald left hereafter. Tint Br nicer Hiu, Celebration.?We often find that in domestic circles, long distracted by the bitterness of family quarrels,the occurrence of some great event, either of joy or of calamity, resiores, for a ec ison at least, the departed harmony, and unites separated hearts by the strong influence of a common sympathy and common interest. And thus happily also, in great social communities, we occasionally witness a like harmonuing influence exerted by similar means. After all, the better principles of our nature, if they get a fair chance, arc more powerful than the evil. Patriotism is sometimes victorious over partizanship; and faction does not always triumph over loyalty to the general good. The seventeenth of June will be to our land, we would lain believe, one of those hallowing and peace-inspiring eras, when discord is all but exorcised, and men grasp each other's hands as brethren. He were indeed a demon who,on such a day, and within the influence of such a scene as that which the lairest city ot New England will present, should cherish political animosity, or party prejudice and hate. The present period is one at which such a national celebration?lor national, in the most extended sense, it may well be termed,?fnay reasonably be | expected to exercise to the fullest extent, its influeucx for good. This country has been for years torn and distracted by fierce political agitation. Like the unfortunate victim of the quack-doctors, it has been subjected to every variety ot maltreatment?its energies have been paralyzed?its vigor terribly impaired?its very existence put in jeopardy. It now wants, first of all, quiet and rej>ose. It wants the opportunity to recruit its impoverished resources.? It wants to be let alone. The great mass of the people?the industrious, the manufacturing and the commercial classes?are all anxiously desirous of shaking of! the disastrous influence of mere trading, huckstering politicians. The emphatic words of Daniel Webster, at Baliimore, express the truth in language which cannot be too frequently repeated, or enforced on the minds of all those concerned in the business of legislation?" De|>end upon it, it is hange, or the apprehension ol change, that unnerves every working man's arm in this country. Changes felt, or changes (eared, are the bane of our industry, and the prostration of our power." In the celebration of Bunker Hill, all true patriots will desire to perceive the promise of the advent of that day of calm repose which is so essentially necessary in the regeneration of our national affairs, and the restoration of confidence and security in all departments ol industry and honest toil. Eighteen years ago, the orator of the day saw the foundation stone laid, of that noble memorial of the most remarkable revolution the world has ever seen. We are not without a reason for the hope that is in us, when we trust that on the seventeenth of next month he may be enabled to lay the foundations of lasting national prosperity?prosperity built not on the shifting sands of political expediency or party intrigue, ! out on the enduring basis of reason, justice and ex- j perienced wisdom. Men of all parties will assemble j 11 thousands and tens of thousands, on that conse* crated spot; and the great movement, so auspi- j eiously commenced at Baltimore, will receive an ; impetus which shall cause itB vibration to be felt in every quarter of the Union. For what is the tendency?what the aim of that movement 1 Is it not to turn the minds of men from the petty schemes of sell-seeking politicians, to the enlightened policy of souud and disinterested statesmanship?from the unprofitable and ruinous pursuit of the mere interests of party, to the observance of the pure and wise precepts of jmtriotism and common sense 1 The monument on Bunker Hill has been reared to perpetuate the grateful remembrance of those heroic achievements which effected the triumph ot libery on this continent. The time has come when another revolution is to be completed, and another victory gained over the enemies of our prosperity and jiermanent stability. On Bunker Hill let the war commence. There, on the spot where foreign tyranny and aggression were made to bite the dust, let that accursed spirit of party hate, which threatens us with a more learful desolation, receive its first determined assault. There, on that appropriate occasion, let Daniel Webster vindicate those great principles for which our lathers successfully contended unto the death. There, let him woo back the patriotism of the land to its first love. There, let him still more deeply impress on the national mind, the urgent duty el awaking to a full sense of threatening danger, and adopting the course to w hich cool deliberation and unprejudiced judgment point. There, let him carry out still farther the great movement for the redemption of his country trorn the destructive policy of mere politicians, to which he laid his colossal ehonlder in ihe city of Baltimore. This celebration will be the greatest scene of national rejoicing ever witnessed in the United States. The preparations are on a scale of un e.vamjjed magnitude. The President?the principal officers of Slate?the Governors of the sarin's States?the Civic Authorities ot many of our chief cities?have all been invited and have signified their intention of being present. Then the militia?the volunteer companies?the numerous patriotic and other societies of Boston, New York, Philadelphia, Albany, and many other cities, will pour in their thousands. It is estimated lrom intimations already received, that there will be upwards of 20,000 men underarms in the procession. The concourse of citizens from all parts of the Union will be immense. Indeed, already a great proportion of the accommodation afforded by the various Hotels iu Boston, has been engaged. In New England scarcely any thing else is thought of. The enthusiastic interest felt there in the approaching festival is perfectly indescribable. We shall take occasion, in due season, to inform those in this city who may wish to participate in the scene, how they can make the most comfortable arrangements for their visit. For the next fortnight all will continue to be bustle and busy preparation for the celebration. The selfish |K>litir ians, who drive their trafHic in the best interests of the country, are, of course,uneasy and alarmed They dread the influence of the scene. They dread the influence of the Great Orator of the day. They dread the effects of that vindication of just and patriotic principle?of sound statesmanship?of disinterested and enlightened national policy which he \iiil A _ II .1 L- I uvuuiiciv, uuuciuiKr. nuu wen may uiey oe j dismayed In their fears, however, are the surest mens of returning national peace, prosperity and triumph. Thk Next Presidency ?The State Convention of South Carolina have nominated John C Calhoun as the Democratic candidate lor the next Presidency. subject to the decision of a National Convention, to l?e convened in Baltimore in May, 1841, seIecUd on the district system, and voting per in/nla. The great contest in the Convention will undoubtedly l?e between the friends of Calhoun and those of Van duren. If Martin should get a majority on the tirst ballot, General Cass has the next best chance lor the nomination, and may probably get it. In that case. he will be nominated, elected, and be the successor of John Tyler. This is highly probable. The Chinese Mission.? Mr. Gushing, it is said, will leave this ctty in the Liverpool packet of the ltith of June, on his way,overland to Bombay, and there take a U. S. vessel forCanton He will study the Chinese language all the way. It km on* or Sir Baoot.?His remains arrived yesterday morning and were transferred on board the War^nte. Important from Washington-llfi* Views. We understand that great pr<q>arations are aiready making in Washington, for the construction and adoption ol a new line of policy, which will first make its appearance at the opening of the next Session of Congress The management of this important business, has been placed entirely by the President, in the hands of John C. Spencer, the Secretary of the Treasury, and it will assume the form of a new /inanrwl 11/item, especially adapted to the present circumstances ot the country?and founded on the right principles of finance. Mr. Spencer is now very busily engaged in collecting facts connected with this subject, ho as to be enabled to form a newsystem that will possess all the sound principles and advantages of the Sub-Treasury of Mr. Van Huren, without any ot its clumsy contrivances and nonsense. The Exchequer plan, formerly recommended by Mr. Tyler, and devised hy Mr. Webster, will be laid aside entirely In constructing the new tinancial policy, Mr. Spencer will have an esjtecial eye to catch aud to keep the next House of Representatives, which is largely democratic.? By this movement he expects to give a blow to the |K>sition of Mr. Van Buren that will puzzle his friends amazingly, and place them entirely lion du ronibot. Mr. Van Buren's only measure is the Sub-Treasury, and this Mi^Spencer will take from under his feet at once. With regard to thu recent movement of Mr. Webster, it is very doubtful whether Mr. Spencer will advise the President to adopt it at all. Its popularity is alarming?and the President and his Secretary wish to stand on their own measures and principles, like a tub on its own bottom, if they can get that bottom polished up in time for the next Congrees ? Mr. Spencer's great object is, with the whole force of the Administration, to break up the cause of Mr. Van Buren among the Democracy, and to open the door wide enough for General Cass, (who has the best claim,) or of Mr. Calhoun, (who has the next claim,) for it seems that no one thinks of Captain Tyler except John Jones and the man in the moon. Mr. Webster's purpose, in his movement, is to demolish the chances ofMr. Clay among the Whigs, and to save the manufacturers from the consesequences of the indecent and suicidal turifT agitation. In such a position, Mr. Spencer and Mr. Webster are the master spirits?the one in the Cabinet?the other out of it?both regarding each other with fear, alarm, admiration, and a little jealousy. The only cool personages in these mighty matters are John Jones, who is too big a fooltoknow any thing, or Captain Tyler, who is too busy with his old bedfellow, John Botts, to know what to do?or ourself, who play ofl one faction against another, one great man in opposition to another great man, as wc would the pieces in a game of chess, merely to amuse the public?make the angels laugh, and the devils weep. Thk Message or Mayor Morris.?The annual message of the Mayor, presented to the Common Council,contains some valuable and salutary suggestions which, it is to be hoped, will receive the immediate sanction of the Legislative part of the Corporation. The recommendation of organizing distinct departments, in accordance with the letter and spirit of the charter, for the performance of all executive business, will meet with the concurrence of every good citizen who desires to prevent the secret system of log rolling and double dealing, that is, and always has been practised by members of the standing committees, who are vested with such immense power and patronage. This important change in the transaction of the executive business of the city has long been the theme of the liberal and honest members of the Common Council, and has as olten been defeated by those who were desirous of filling their own pockets or those of theirfriends. The adoption of the plan suggested by* the Mayor, in this organization of the executive departments, would decrease the city expenses, and secure to the public a full knowledge of its affairs under each department, which is not now to be obtained. The Mayor's suggestions relative to a temporaiy reformation in the Police of our city, until time will admit of definite action upon a general reform by the Legislature, are correct and in perfect accordance with the views and opinions that have been so oft'-n reiterated in the columns of the Herald. In discussing the street contract, he takes strong ground, Rnd insists that the Common Council have legal power and right to annul or alter said contract whenever they may think proper. His plan of compelling citizens to sweep the streets opposite their own uwriiingB ana places 01 uusincss, is noi practicable, and we have many reasons to believe that the only eflectual plan after all, is for the con?oration to sweep the streets on its own hook, and then the public can hold the members of the Common Council responsible for neglect of duty, in allowing the city to be in a filthy condition, and seek redress by refusing to re-elect them to perforin the public business. To this complexion will all the talk about street contracting corne at last, as with no other can the public he secured from disease, contagion and death that might ensue front continued neglect on the part of contractors to cleanse the streets, piers and slips inu proper manner. The Street Contract-?The present position of the business of cleaning the streets is in rather a complicated "fix." The Democrats say they have the power to repeal the contract?the Whigs deny the power to repeal. This is a point of law which will very likely reach the Court of Errors, before it is decided. Then again, the Democrats are divided among themselves as to what policy they will adopt in case of annulling the contract, which will of course be done. One party, at the head of which is Alder man Purdy, is for returning to the old system alto gether?giving the whole business into the hands o the superintendent ot streets?not even permittini Aldermen to interfere with the employment of sucl persons as the superintendent may think fit. Auw ther party is for dividing the city into sixtetT districts, and giving out the sweeping iu sixteei separate contracts. Another thing As soon as the contract is repeal ed, it is understood that the present contractor! will bring an action against the city every hall month?wnen the money becomes clue?to recovei pay (or cleaning the streets. And if it should turr out that the law is on their side, they may be ablt to recover pretty heavy damages; for they can brins plenty of evidence, not only from Mr. Bartleli Smith, but even from the speeches of Aldermen Leonard, Purdy, and other leading Democrats, tha' the work can be done for much less than $64,5<H) and if so, that their damages are eqaal to their pre sent profits. Then again, it may ,'|>erhaps be proved that the present contract, in its operation, is iniurious to the health of the city. If so, there can be no doub about the right to repudiate. For no Cummm Council can have the right to legislate away the health of the city. At all evenis, it is poeitivclj affirmed?and there will be plenty of evidence t? prove, too?that the contract has not been perform ed according to agreement, e specially in the mattei of sweeping the docks, markets, and many of the streets Such are some of the guntiotift vtxata now undei examination and discussion. And we greatly feal that the people ol this city will he as seriously vexed wiih continually accumulating dust and dirt as the Common Council are with the questions fordecision. The |>eop|e demand speedy action of some kind. If it were <ion?\ when 1i? <lon?, then 'twere well It were done quickly. MovKveiNTS.?The lion Daniel Webster left foi Boston yenterdnyafternoon, in the steamboat Wor center. The lion. George N Hrtggs, M C.,of Berkshire Mass , in at theCroton Hotel. Ricumoif of tub President ?The Committee of the Common Council, of which Aid. Purely in chairman, have des|>atclied communications to Mr. Secretary Spencer, and through him to the" Pfesident, informing them of the recent action of the Common Council, and requesting to know, as early as i*>seible, the intended route of the President and suite, and the time of their expected arrival in this ; city. An answer may be received to day ; and as soon as it comes, the Committee will immediately select apartments tor him either at the Astor, the American, or at Howard's, and appoint his bedfellow?for which birth there are two promincnt candidates, his Honor the Mayor, and his excellency the President of the Hoard of Aldermen. In the mean time there are several cliques of olhce-seekers in a terrible stew as to who shall have i the keeping, of the President. The way they will urround him on his arrival, will be a caution to dignitaries. As for the ultra Whigs, they assert that the President is nogentleman.and have determined, therefore, not to call on him at all while in the city. He will doubtless be politely received by the moderate politicians of all parties. Messrs. French and Heiser have erected a landj ing-place upon the promenade outside of Castle Gar| den, where there is sufficient depth at low water for steamboats to land passengers. It will be an appro pnate place lor me i-resiaeni 10 ianu, anu win doubtless be selected by the Committee. Post Offick Movements.?We understand that the Postmaster General, at ihe instigation ol the Postmaster at Paterson, has prohibited the ltailroud Company from carrying any newspapers on that route. No previous Postmaster General attempted to interfere with the circulation of news, literature and intelligence, by the usual improved modes of communication, till the present able and liberal one came . into |>ower. The attempt made last winter to smug- j i gle through Congress, a despotic and abominable \ law on this point, was not successful?but it seems j . that the same malign influence still exists in the de- | parlment, and that this is the first trial to carry out the same purpose by a stretch of constructive autho| rity. i It really would appear that some of the officials of John Tyler, have a species of insane ambition after 1 the highest degree of unpopularity and public contempt. What can the administration gain by making such drivelling efforts against the circulation of | the press 1 The Stock Excitement in Wall Street.?The | rise of stocks in Wall street, continues to be quite extraordinary. Yes erday the old Grand Gulf and the Vicksburg rose from nothing to 5 or 6. It is supposed that this rise is caused by a decision of the highest court of Mississippi, in favor of certain cotton judgments held by these concerns. All stocks, however, good, bad, or indifferent are affected. Fortunes are making rapidly, and men are beginning to get crazy. By July we willbeallmad enough. The causes are generally attributed to the bank loans, and the competition of the two board of of brokers?perhaps partly from the general restoration of better times. The Bowling Green Fountain.?We understand that a most beautiful and picturesque fountain will oon be erected in the Bowling Green?and we learn that it may be ready to play on the fourth of July. The design of this fountain is quite original. The j basin will be about ninety feet in diameter, lined with marble, variegated with rocks, and enlivened with water foul sailing on the waves inside. The jet of water?or rather gush of Croton?will rise ninety feet up to heaven, from a formation of dark green rocks from the Pallisades, of twenty feet high, ; and jetting out their angular edges in every direc| tion. On these rocks the water will fall and form a i I circular cataract of the most beautiful and pic' turesque kind. j This conception is quite new, and originated with young Mr. Renwick, the son of the Professor. It j will be one of the greatest ornaments to the city, ' and will impress every traveller from Europe, as he cf*M)Q flfilmrt* in Nf*w VnrU with thp natural rrincrnifj. I - ? ' ?? , cence of the "City of Fountains"?and "Miniature 1 Niagaras." Park Pon?.?Alderman Purdy positively declares j that something shall be done tor this poor foTlorn j pond, at an early day. In the meantime, a small | flock of geese will be allowed to paddle about the I pond by way of amusing the boys. Visitors, and the public, are, however, requested not to call it a geese pond, as that would be too vulgar. We thought we saw a couple of geese in the pond yesterday ; it was at a distance, however, and they might have been swans, or South American ducks. The question whether this is to be a fish pond, frog pond, goose pond, or duck pond, is important, and should be settled as early as possible. CHEAr Literati-re.?We should not be surprised to see this business burst pretty soon. Just stand from under. Fasiiionahi.e Magazines?Rather cooling down in these days. There is more puffery in them than any thing else. Watering Places.?Great resorts for slander, defamation and backbiting. Trembling.?The ultra whigs are beginning to get terribly alarmed at the movements of Mr. Webster. Well may they be so. A New Paganini.?We understand that Mr. Wallace, a young musician, who is on his way to Europe from a tour round the world, through Europe, India, South America, and the Southern States, intends to give a concert before he leaves , our shores. Mr. Wallace has performed at several private parties, and his skill and genius are considered perfectly unequalled?superior to any exhibij ter ever heard before. He is a master, equally on ^ the violin and the piano. 1 Concert.?Signer Paggi gives a Concert to-morrow evening at the Apollo Rooms. He will be as 1 sisted by Madame Sutton and other eminent artists. 1 B <?, k;? *i,.it i on die oboe, and will have a fine house, we hope. j Mr. Aiwott or thr Park Thkatre .?1ThisgenI tleman, whose sudden illness we noticed yesterday, r still lies in the green room at the Theatre, in a very , dangerous state. His physicians will not allow him to be removed, and say it ia very doubtful if he ever , recovers He ia nearly insensible, or wandering in I his mind, although he recognizes his wile. It is , his second attack of apoplexy. Mr. Shaw performt ed the part of Richmond for him last evening. The Gfkat was seen on the 27ih mat., in Ion. 66, going ahead in fine style, by Capt. I)oan, of the ship Cotton Planter, at this port Irom Havre. > . Fair, four feet, and fat?There is n little big t girl now exhibiting Tat the New Ysrk Museum, 6 i years old?4 feet high?and 240 pounds weight.? . Tom Thumb is going to make love to her, and, if i Ihirnum will consent, why, marry her?and join the , Kourierites. New Wi'm.-Harper <k llrothers have just sued "TheDays ol l^ueen Mary," in a 12mo. vol! u ne, with engravings, price twenty-five cents. It is a sketch of transactions which occurred in Eng' land during the reign of Queeii Mary, especially of ' the persecutions for llie sake ol religion, which were I so numerous.

' Chatham Theatre.?This house was well filled last night, to witness the humorous performances of Yankee Hill, whs seems to improve in his style of delineating the Yankee character on euch luccessive engagement. He appears this evening in two of his best pieces. Mr. Wood is alpo playing at this r theatre. 'Irf- The Hon. Mr. Fox, Minister of Her Hritanic Majesty, and suite, arrived in this city yesterday ' evening trom Washington, and have taken rooms at I the Exchange Hotel ?Hnltimore American, May'A0 HOSSISLK ATTCMrT AT Ml'HDKK AK? SUICIDE?The _ upper part of our city has been the scene of a strange and horrible nttenip*di)MS huabtul to murder hi* smite.* and commit suicide Fortunately lor his victim he did not g succeed fully, and there is every reason to believe that the wound indicted on himself will not prove mortal? " It appeared that the man, David McKenzie, a laborer, a ? native of Scotland, returned to his home, at tho corner of Tenth Avenue and Sixteenth street,where he rents a rear 1 basement in the house of Samuel Jackson, grocer, about e nine o'clock on Monday night, and shortly alter Mr. Jack- ' son heard the screams of the wife, lie hastened to her re- ^ lief,and met her coming from the cellar with her throat cut w in a shocking manner. She told him that McKenzie had (| attempted to murder her, and begged his assistance. He ran into the basement, and there stood the husbond in the H middle of the door, with a fearlulgash in his throat, from which tho blood itowed fast?he appeared perfectly calm 1 and told Mr. Jackson that he had cut his own and his a wife's throat. Mr. Jackson called the watch sent lor y Doctor Chatham, who soon sewed up and bandaged y the gashes, and had McKenzie taken to tho watch- 0 house. The wile lies in a very dangerous state, ? and her recovery is yet doubtful?shu was exceedingly | exhausted from the loss of blood. At the watchhouse the j unfortunate man conversed freely and composedly with 1 v the watchmen,and in reply to one of the captain's questions,he said, "yes I cut her throat?1 wanted to leave this g wicked world, and was determined to take her along with I g( me." They had been married for some time,and had u la- c mily of four children, who were sleeping in an adjoining I $ room at the time. On the following morning, olttcer J. 8. j Smith found the rszor in a niche over the oven in the hed j ' room, where McKenzie had no doubt hid it after he had i s committed the fearful crime. William E. Host?The case of William E. Ross, con- j victed last fall in the Court of General Sessions of aeon* g structive grand larceny, was yesterday argued in the Su- 6, preme Court by Mr Carpentier lor the prisoner, and Mr. ' , Whiting, District Attorney, for the people,when the ju.Is- y ment and sentence of the Court below was immediately 9 rtverted. , A Sailor Thief.?George Davis, a sailor boy, was yes- a tordav committed at the lower police othce, for breaking j. into the forecastle of thu schooner " Dodge," now lying at | a Cotfee House Slip, and stealing from tbence $30 in specie, I f, and a quantity of seaman's toggery, of the value of $4 7 ft. ' When asked why he did the act, he replied, that " he took the clothes because he wanted them but touching the money, " he had received it !rom a boy belonging to some < C other ship." He was fully committed on a charge of grand larceny. < A Email One, TaivriNo.?Otticer Stokely arrested a i " Nymph ol the Pave," named Rebecca Thompson, at the i v assignation house. No. 6 Elizabeth street, charged wi h a having abstracted from what in polite phraseology aro tl called his unmentionables, a bank note of the amount of Cl $100. The officer made a very diligent orid minute search Sl of her person, and at lust found the note cut in halves, concealed in her hair, as curl paper. She was fully com- ^ mittrd. A Bi ki.lah CaOoht?On Sunday night, as Mr. Wm. c Dealing was passing by his store, at No. 330 Wooster St., a he was surprised to find it open ; he listened and heard tl the noise of some person inside. A Mr. L. A. Cowling, > n who lived next door, coming to his assistance, they en- ! s tercd and secured a mini who gave his name John Brown, j p a musician from Philadelphia, where he bos a wife and | h family. He hud gained an entrance by means of false 1 ' keys, which were found concealed in a tub. ; 1 Another Nymfh Akrestfd.?Officers Relyea, Kellin- j * ger and Stokely, arrested Rubenia Green, ou the com- j 1 plaint of a lady from Philadelphia, whose name we learn . " is Ann Green, with having stolen from her a gold watch, ; v Sold pencil case, ring and breast pin, valued at $100. Mrs. ; 0 [arley took lodgings at a house in Dunne street, where I 0 this girl also had a room. As soon as the robbery was * 8 discovered, the girl left and took lodgings in Pearl street, near Broadway, in the house of John Young, whom she robbed of $19. The officers succeeded in recovering the . I property, and the girl was fully committed. 1 A Pick*Pocket Caught.?Yesterday morning while attending the auction of books, by Messrs. Gurlcy &. Hill, at f their rooms, No. 169 Broadway, Mr. James lieyatt of No. t 136 West street, had hispocket picked of upwards of $600, h consisting of a check on E.jC. Benedick, on the Fulton s i Bank of this city, for $300, and the rest in bills of the I p I Chemical Bank, of various denominations. Hefelttheat- j v tempt, and on looking round, perceived n man who gave | o his name as Timothy Hughes,alias Frederick Jonea. Of- | n fleer Joseph was sent for and arrested him. The money, ' d however, could not be found, as it is supposed the gang j ti were at hand and made ott, leaving Hughes to bear the : ? brunt. He wps fully committed. ] ? u I Niblo's Theatre?Last night the comic opera of ' Ji | " La Terruche ! ou Le Porteur d'eau," was repeat- ! d i ed, with mnch more effect than on the first repre- | 1' i sentation. Mademoiselle Lagier was in better j 4l voice, and personated the part of Madame Mar- * neuf with archness and vivacity. M. and Madame Lecourt, as Bagnolet and Coraltne, were reneatedly c applauded. The part of Bagnolet is the only specimen of M- Lecourt's comic powers we hive yet t seen, and if he could avoid a little of his stiffness, we rather think we should prefer Ins comedy to the more serious parts in which he has previously appeared. Apropos, we perceive that he is underlined for Robert Macaire, and that character may prove a test of his popularity ; for it must be remembered that we have had a Robert Maca're on the New York boards, since whose departure no one has been hardy enough to try the public feeling in that arduous character. After the opera the orchestra played the overture i d'Eanieralda, com|>osed by the leader, Mr. Prevost, j which called down the repealed plaudits of the audience. The vaudeville oi the "(Jamin de Paris," was then played for the first time, but the late hour at which the curtain fell prevents our noticing it more particularly this day. We cannot, however, help saving that it went off remarkably well and ik.t ;?>? ,?_i, ......?.i j iuai ?* uiua iciti iu i an/v aiuuu^ iuc outtti?iui uu?cr j I ties of the season. v !

His wife las been tor nearly two years troubled with an indolent welling under her tongue, which was so large as to imiede her swallowing, and much affected her speech. It ias frequently opened and Hit charged large quantities of (Pensive matter. She had al. j the Erysipelas, accompa >ied with cxtsnsive dropsical enlargement, attended with arting pains, so severe as to disturb, and much of the ime, totally deprived of her rest. One of her arms was o stiff and paiaful as to render it almost useless. Under 11 these afflictions, by the advice of her physician, she sed this valuable article, which almost immediately reieved the nain and lameness, removed the swelling and isease under the tongue, and so reduced the dropsical ensrgrment as to leave her dress nearly a quarter of a yard oo large around the waist; the swelling of the limbs, rhich was so distrcsssng and troublesome, has also been cmoved.

The South Carolina Banks that refused to accept the irovisions of the bill to relieve them frem the penalties of mspension, will now be obliged to wind up underthe t late decision of the judges of that State. We remarked lately that Maryland, following the eximple of Pennsylvania, had levied a tax to meet part of its Interest, and that its citizens in like manner had relhsed to pay it. A meeting of the popular party was held at Bui-Air on the 19th iust., when resolutions were passed expressive of the inability of the people to pay the tax, and also the inexpediency of selling the works in the man. ner proposed in the lata law. The resolutions conclude ss follows:? Resolved, That several of the counties have neglected ir relused to pay any direct tax, and that all the counties ought to opjiuse in a constitutional and legal manner the payment of the same. / Resolved, that the people of this country, at their next election, ought to express their disappiobatiou of this oppressive system of exaction, and come out openly for repeal. In our article of Monday, in reference to commercial reaties, we promised to continue the investigation of the iperation of existing regulations in relation to the trade with the British colonial possessions. Tho restrictions which existed between the United States ind Great Bri:ain, in relation to their general trade, led, as we before Navigation Act in 1816. The colonial trade was, howsver, excepted from thoie provisions, and mutual restric dons prevented this trade from growing, until, in 1830, >oth nations seeing the necessity of greater liberality, tho colonial ports, by British order* 11 Council, were nearly ill opened to the vessels of the United States arriving with produce irom the United States direct, and to clear jut lor any foreign country, on the same terms and duties is British vessels; also the same drawbacks, bounties, and allowances. In consequence of this movement of England, the Tresident of the United States,pursuant to a prior law of Congress to that effect, issued a proclamation opening the porta of the United States to.British Colonial vessels. So far, the reciprocity was apparent. It was contended, however, that British versels enjoyed superior advantages to those of the United States to an extent which would eventually drive the wbolo trade into British bottoms. The most material ot these advantages wore stated to bent, That American vessels could arrive at only one colonial port direct from the United Sta'es, and could not depart thence lur another British pert. ad, That goods could be warehoused in one port, end carried thence in British vessels to another colonial port, which United States vessels could not do. 3d, That the number ol ports to which United States vessels are permitted to trade is limited, while there aro many products of which gypsum is one, that can be obtained at the place of its production only in British vessels. It wns contended that these disadvantage to American vessels would give all the trado to British vessels. For instance, that flour could be taken irom the United States in British ve-sels, carried to the North American colonies, naturalized, and thence carried to the W. Indies rree of duty, as British flour, while American vessels could only carry it to the West Indies direct, and pay the duty. Notwithstanding the great disadvantage el having a new market for agricultural products, it was contended that it was bettar to close the parts altogether than to allow British vessels to monopolize the trade. Those regulations have now been thirteen years in operation, and we can clearly trace their effects in theTrcasury tables, in the first place, the progress of British tonnage is seen in the following table:?
