NEW YORK HEKALH. v?w lnrk, Wed it Oil ay. Jant 14. 1MJ. The Reception of Captain Tjrle*. The extraordinary reception of Captain Tyler by ihe peopled New York?ihe number*?the character?and the nccoinpamnv ntsof this reception, have astounded and puzzled every body, aud perhaps none more so than the Captain himself?his Cahine , and in* body-guard ;ar u. Here m a President without aparty, yet received in New York by the masses ot both parties, with a tremendous quantity of') net, gentlemanly respect, that puzzles philosophy aid makes the politicians stand still ia amazement 1 he Inundation of thissingular asd sensible movenit nt towards an amiable?not a great?chiet magistrate, may be found in the good feelings aud good i- use ot the oeonle?the mutual instincts ot the inn i? set lu motion by tnt* bhrewa mandgrrs 01 tlit* "democracie," who knew very well what they \v re about. This "democracie" has managed to take the recepiion out of the hands ol the T yler men per sr, and to create an impression on the minds ol the President and his Cabinet, that w ill be ?qu d to an entire revolution among the cilice-holders hpre, in less than six months, liedw ? od Fi-her once talked a great deal to Mr. Wick1 tl ol his eonimittee, with Major Noah at its head an Joe Smith at its tail, "who lived among the m i?s, am: who moved the masses." That was esregious JnitJaronaiie. Captain Tyler and his able c abinet have seen, lelt, shaken hands, drank out ol the same cup, and almost slept in the same bed w.th tin real movers of the niasstsol the " demccracie'' in New York. After having ins|>ected the C'roton Aqueduct, and taken a lunch at Nowland's on Prospect llill, the Captain and his nude leave town on their pilgrimage to Bunker llill, hut they will never forget the NewYork reception?its purposes and meaning?and the men w ho set it all in motion. The results we will know in less than six months. Candidates lor office will please to get their papers ready?"All those w hat havn't paid dere passanges will 6tep up to the Cap-aiu'e office and settle?deng-dong, deng dong, deng-dong." Tint Batti.e of Bunker Hill ?It is said that Mr Bennett, of the New York Herald, will be prosecuted for transferring to his columns the book of Rev Mr Ellis, on the subject ol the battle,the copyright ol which iaceeutedto Mr. C. P. Emmons, the publisher.?Borton Pajxr. This is very funny. The extracts (not the "book") we published w ere taken from the brocliwc, sent us by the publishers for the purpose ol noticing. That publication has done, and will do more to sell the book than all the other pulls and advertisements they have published and paid for. As Paul Pry says?" I'll never do a good-natured thing again during my whole life." The fuss also made id the Boston papers, will increase the notoriety ol the in-ochure, which is just wanted before the Bunkei Hill celebration, and thus also tend to increase the sales. We consider our original notice and extracts, with the engraving we gave, worth at least ?500 to the publishers?hut in consequence of the scarcity of shad, we will take ?251, which they will please to send us by the first chance?segars included. The Kev. Mr, Ellis will also be celebrated in this business, and will ulso become our debtor for twenty praters and forty benedictions. We may let him oil lor that?but not a breath less. Later Foreign News.?The steamship Britannia,from Liverpool for Boston, has been outten days this morning. She will bring sixteen days later news, which must be highly interesting, in consequence of the important subjects in agitation when the last steamer left. The overland mail from India will have arrived. The Great Mass Repeal Meeti.ng lakes place thieevening in the Park. Hour, hall past six o'clock. 1 the Irishmen iu New York will be there. A full in to-morrow's Herald. Influenza ?The prevailing epidemic attacks all ages and constitutions. The symptom are a great prostration of strength, sore throat, and a bad couCh. It is very obstinate, and requires prompt, rigid treatment to drive it away. The late sudden changes of the weather is very unfavorable to those that have it, and dangerous to those that have not had it. Ladies and children going out to ride in our warmest days, should follow the English custom of taking with them warm clothing to be ready lot the least change. Hunker Hill Pilgrims trorn this city, had bettet Jo>>k out now for comfortable quartets there. One of the best resting places is Stevens' Exchange Hotel, which is part of that magnificent building, Ui? Merchants' Exchange, State street. The accommodations are unequalled?the host and hosted the pink ol perfection ? the cook a lineal destviidani ofllde ? and tho bedding fresh, inviting, and irreproachable in every respect It i< the very spot for a pilgrim to rest his wearied limbs, an? ei oy lor a season the good things of this world. Ryan's "rktackpole House" is sufficiently kriowi to tame lie is an extraordinary artist, and has lately made some remarkable discoveries in the w orld of spirt's. He has made arrangements lor ac conunodatiug a large number of pilgrims The " Trernont House" is of course all in readiness. //k.n's American Hotel?The late additions, altera'ions, and extensive improvements have now been finished, and the establishment new furnished t hroughout. His marble floors, royal wilton carpets, bp'ad side mirrors, Acc., Acc., give one an idea of regal splendor and magnificence. We cannot at prefee-nt enter minutely into a description of the rooms, but shall do it at no distant day. Fort Hamilton ?This is indeed a truly delight ful spot. Mr. Curtis has his establishment in eapi tal order N? matter how warm the weather ma) be, yos can always enjoy a cool, refreshing breezi upon the wide extended piazza that surrounds lh< li .tel.

I lis Kece|?tlnn?Ills ^ l?lt (o tile Arty \ aril?Uranil PrgctMoa, Alter the enjoyment ol several Iiourrol calm and refreshing repose, the President r?#e at an early hour yesterday m ruing, niid as lie looked out on the placid sky, and snufled the pleasant breeze, which comes with grateful welcome, alike to Presidents and piuper*. lie devoutly thanked Heaven that he had been so well sustained during tne exj citing scenes of the previous day. Then sinking in I the am;>le, luxurious, couch like cnatr, which the j kindness ot his hosts had ptovided, he pulled on his boots and pantalot .is, which his Excellency wears without straps. He then touched a spring attached to a magnificent wash-stand, and out gu.-hed a sparkling stream of pure, cold Croton water. Having thus filled u btisin?made for obvious reasons, much deeper than those used by ordinary inen?Ins Excellency dipped his face and nose in it, and lelt refreshed. With " A new Barcelona tied roudlii* nate ne:k,*' a vest ol a very modest pattern?plain dress coat, and a hat, a little the wor.-e for the wear, his Excellency hiring completed his simple toilet, gently stole out of his bed chamber. The very first he met was BIDDY, THE CHAMBERMAID. ~ ! who makes his bed, ami a very pretty, plump, rosyj cheeked girl she is. The President graciously winkj ed at Biddy, and as he was in a pleasant humor, chucked her under the chin. Biddy blushed, curtsied very low, and exclaimed, as the Captain disappeared? " God bless your Honor?I dunna cart what they say, you're a jewel ol a man !" The Captain then got out by the private entrance on Maiden lane, and quietly walked round to Jem Grant's?the State Barber and Perfumer. It was a fi :e study for a painter, that shaving scene! The easy, practised grace with which Jem seized with his leflindex and thumb that nose, whilst with the right he guided on it* rapid, gliding, wavy motions, a razor with edge invi ible to mortal eyes, could have been described only by the pencil of a Hogarth. In the simple act of applying the saponaceous com pound, vulgarly called " lather," there was more ol " the poetry of motion" than in the toes of half-adozen ballet-girls. Who but Jem Grant should he allowed to tweak the President's nose, and give to hischin the desired smoothness ? Who like Jem I can so nicely skim ihe expanded chops of an apo' plectic alderman 1 Woo like him can eo adroitly 1 glide round the sharp angles of a lank-jawed politician 1 Who like him can dig with euchmarvellous minuteness into the recesse- of a deeply pock-pitted countenance 1 " Am 1 shaved 1" exclaimed his Excellency in amazement, as the gentle operation was concluded. " Yes, your Excellency," replied Jem, with a low bow, end one ofhis blandest smiles. " And now shall 1 have the honor of shampooing your Excellency's head 1" asked the Grant. His Excellency signified his acquiescence, and the State Perfumer immediately commenced the process. The effect was remarkable. It was the celebrated "Magnolia Wash," prepared expressly for the heads of the " young democracie," which was used, and so powertully mesmeric was it in the present instance, that the Captain was in thirty-five seconds cast into the magnetic state, and was seized with an extraordinary disposition to be loquacious. But the State secrets thus revealed?the a-pirations ?the promises?the important revelations made on this occasion cannot now be given to the world. . Unlike other "State Barbers," the Hon. James Grant has the virtues of discretion and fidelity, arid what is better, he knows how to practice them. Jem is as silent as a mummy. Time, however, is the great revtaler, anil may soon tell what honest Jim will not. After leaving Mr. Grant's elegant saloon, the Captain strode back to Howard's. His step was more elastic than ever, and he looked up like a man? j " vult us ad tidera." What a pleasant smile ill ai mined the features of " honest John Tyler!" The 1 smile, however, was very evanescent, for ju -t as his Excellencyjurned die corner ot John street, he met A DISAPPOINTED OFFICE-SEEKER. The heart of the Captain wus moved, and as the " victim " seized on his button, and with n brill voice detailed the ?tory ol Ins |> tient enduraucc, a Urge tearcourecd down the furrowed cheek ol the President of the United States. It i? a fact. And who could be unnrnved at eight of^uch.a'npectacle as that winch our artist has ao rucceaafully portrnyrd t The Captain was about to whisper hope in tlie < ar of the "victim," when aa ill-fort uu? would have it l n \ LAP/flNG_)c I ONE OK T11E CODFISH ARISTOCRACY who call " honest John" a traitor, brushed past, al most driving his Excellency and the " victim" into the gutter. The Captain walked ofl indignantly, and the "victim" hurried to the "Pewter Mag," and forgot his sorrows over a pint of Major Joe's brown stout. Ey the time the Captain got back to Howard's,the oHice-seekers and ofiice holders had mustered in strong force in the lobbies. It was thought that he had not yet left his bed-room, and many an anxious look was turned towards the door of that apartment. One dMermined hanger-on thrust his hands into his breeches-pocket, leaned his shoulders resolutely against the wall, and thus stood ' WAITIN(5 F<)R A CHANCE. His Excellency, however, t-lipin-d in unobserved, nod after receiving the morning salutations ol the " guard," and gallantly paying his devoirs to the ladies, who looked as smiling and charming as possible, he stepped to the breakfast room, where, we are happy to report, he ate a very reasonable share ol the good things provided by Mrs. Howard. The President and suite left Howard's Hotel in Fome fisni or len carriages provurea uy me <>or poration. These were driven down to the Castle Garden, where the whole party embarked in the boats belonging to the Independence and North Caroliaa. There was not a great crowd present, but the morning was fine, the spectators pleased, and all seemed in high spirits. On reaching the Independence, the flag ship of Commodore Stewart, a salute of 21 guns was fired. The whole party were thrn shown over the ship, took u glass of wine, and re-embarked in the boats to go on hoard the North Carolina. On leaving the Independence, a salute ot 13 guns were fired. On reaching the North Carolina 21 guns was fired ; the same ceremony was gone flirougli with that took place on board the other ship; more wine was drunk and the party left the ship lor Brooklyn under a salute of 21 guns. The lauding at Br< okl>n was attended with nothing remmk.ibie ; the Common Council behaved in the most shabby manner. Tlx re w> re only three companies of Inlantrjr present to receive the President, besides the splendid com; any ol Citv Guards, who went from New Yoik t<> escort the President. These were the Light Guard of Brooklyn, Captain Pearson, the Nassau Guards, Captain Spraguc, and 'lie Union Guard under Lieut. Smith These all looked and drilled rrriiatkahly well ?There were also two troo|w of artillery from Gen. Storma's brigade, who were very tudely treated throughout But the great feuture of the day was the City Guard under Capt. James Mason. They looked supeib, and paraded inimitably. On reaching Prooklyn, there was a great deal of confusion and noise; and after much trouble, the President and two other gentlemen got into a carriage The Mayor of Brooklyn said a few words, and the President replied; but the noise was so great that nothing was heard ten teet from them; the cori tege moved ofl in this manner:? CARRIAGE Containing the President, Mayor of Brooklyn, and Mayor of Kew YorkCarriage containing the Cabinet. Twenty carrisgci containing all sort* of people whom scarcely anybody knew. These were driven till about the city and into numerous places where no one on foot would follow them The beautiful company of t.'ity Guards, marched down to the Navy Yard, and stacked their arms, and here crowds followed in expectation of that being the great tin aire of o;>eratione for the day Following the earring's, were the military; then the various Irish Benevolent Societies, numbering about three hundred, and about one hur dr.-d carmen mounted. A lew cheers were raised tor the President on his landing, but there was little or no mark of enthusiasm evinced throughout his r ute round tin- city It was worthy ofremaik that on going up F lion street, the President flowed invariably to the left aide of the slre< t, scarcely noticing the nglu side, al hough all the most beautiful women were on that side?an instance of iingallant conduct, very unusual for Virginians of the old school. The Navy Yaho The great centre of attraction, after all, was the Navy Yard Here all the loveliest women hi the neighborhood were congregui# d A platform was raised in front of the Naval Lyceum, carpeted and ornamented with wreaths and festoons in the most beautiful style. On this stage were assembled uboat thirty of the most charming ladies the State contains. On the long inclined plane leading from the upper part of the large slop house, there were seated about 100 young ladies,and as the men, with curious eyes gazed up the platform, they presented a picturesque, yet any thing but a graceful or modest appearance. Tlip Yard was in fine order. Indeed, under Capt. Sinds's admirable management, it never was in any other condition. All ti e marines were at their posts, and in a high state of discipline, under Capt. Lngliss, Capt. Douglass, Lt. Brady, Lt. Long, and L's. Young and Waldron. On the platform wiih the ladies were Commodore Jon-s, Captain Hudson, Capt. Newman. Capt. Carpenter, Capt. De Hart, and Lieut. Morris The latter is such * noble, g!<>rious looking lellow, that the tars in the crowd all declared that a man who could enjoy a laugh like hiin ought to be a captain. He had on hit arm the most beautiful woman in Brooklyn, by long oddsshe was dressed in black. The balcony waa crowded with lovely young girla, and si'was the yard, in every jmrt of it. And the s< < ne was equal to anytliine oen in New York the day b? lore. Atter a great deal of delay, caused by the stupidity and bad managi rnent ol the Brooklyn Marshals, not one of whom was fit for hit place, the music announced the arrival ofthe President.

Mr. Tyler replied, "Nt>, sir, I was once in New York tor about iTii hour, but never in Brooklyn " Carr. Sands then spoke n-. follows: ?

Mr. President, we stand en ground, I max say, emphatically and truly, on ground sacred to patriotism? on ground where lie the mouldering remains ot thousands of our countrymen, xh liv. a wero sacrificed on tne altarot patriotism ? here, sir, were the moorings ol the Jersey Prison Ship? here, sir, are the bones o( Iheru xvli > died on board ol her -as yet without a monument.

The Piiksidknt replied?The n wal deeds of the heroes of the revolution are among the proudest trophies of the country ; the recollection ol the battle between the Bon Homniv Richaid, and the Serapi*, will be imperishable, so long as this glorious Union exists ; and in connexion therewith, the name of John Pa :1 Jones, will survive the wreck ol ngrs. (Cheers). And so w ill the other great deeds ol our revolutionary naval warfare. A d so will the deeds ol those other naval heroes who shone so brilliantly in the last war. I have been with two of those gallant heroes to-day, sir, who caused the star spangled banner to float in triumph on every sea?the gallant Stew art and the gallant Jones. (Three tremendous cheers.) There are other names, sir, which time will not allow nte to mention,among "horn that of the glot ions Decatur stands out in b: ight relief.

Sir, I receive your hearty welcome with thanks, and with the same cordiality with which it is tendered. (Cheers ) The President was then taken to the Commodore's house, where Capt. Sands and the charming ladies ol the establishment had prepared a most magnificent collation. In the balcony of this house, the President exclaimed, "Stop.l have a small duty to perform here," and round he went to shake hands with the beautiful women there. Alter this he and his suite and tiie Mayors of boih Cities, h'otiert I/. weimore, m>i].,uiiu scvtrm uuit-r distinguished civil and naval men, set down to the collation. Captain Sands was in tjic chair, and filled his oflice most admirably. The President, the Cabinet,

and the Mayors and Corporations did eat ike good lellows. They were annoyed bv a few loafers who thrust themselves in, but this was the fault of the Marshals, who were more intent upon eating and drinking than their duty. Capt. " r\C-. ; ""'"C ) '1 lie tesn.itf were K<* >t u,> till an < arlyr nour, ?nd onr reporter left just as a (lietio?u;sed member ol the party had got up 'on a c'.uir, and .was ab outjtofpropose the health ol the ladie?, and l ~ I I11- I'K Mr. Hbnmett? The- respectable and pi?us portion of our citizens, ''specially men as noia ornce under tne aumimstration, together with those who art- making strenuous exertions to get office ot any kind, have been latterly inure tliari a little shocked anti mortified on account ot the levity of your language, or rather ihe language of your John Jones Towards Mr. Kobert Tyler There la not in the whole compass ol this mighty land, a nicer young mn lor a small pariy, 'han Pus same " Captain Hob."

At this the President laughed right out. All rose and started for the Navy Yard wharf, escorted by the New York City Guard in admirable j-? u e w',a,l there were over 40 or 50 splendid barges cutters, g.gs. \-(. belonging to the U.

They gaveCaptaiu rtands's health with 9 cheers. Then they were escorted to the Ferry by the Nassau and Brooklyn Light Guard The City Guard this day was the best drilled, best dressed, most splendid looking body of soldiers that the city contains. They were admired by all who saw them. We must not forget to state thut great praise is due to Lieu', llrady and Lieut. Long, for the handsome manner in which they officiated throughout the day, and the courtesy and effi iency with which ilie-v administered to the wants and comforts of the ladies, the soldiers and their fellow citizens. Speedy promotion Htlend them. The party proceeded to the wharf about 3 o'clock, g ill.inlly escorted by Captain Sands, and other officers I .deed, the attention and politeness of Captain Sands, Com'r Hudson, and oilier officers, were the theme of universal admiration The sun during the early part of the day,ha f been obscured by clouds, but he now shone out brilliantly, adding greatly to the splendor of that gay scene. The government barges formed into double line, and presented a very beautiful appearance. As they were rowed rapidly down the river, salutes were fired from Brooklyn Heights. The boats soon reached Castle Garden, and the party landed. Tiie Battery was crowded with spectators, but thefe was no cheering. The Captain and suite then took their carriages and drove to the City Hall, where his Excellency received the greeiings oi a number of the citizens. His Exellency then returned tohisquariers?ate a capital dinner? quaffed a few glasses of champagne ?chatted quietly lor an hour with the "guard," and then took his carriage and drove to Niblo's. He was escorted by the Mayor, the Hon. Joi.n C. Spencer, Wicklift'e, Porter, Captain Gregory, King Caucus Hatfield, Elijah Purdy, and several other members of the Common Council The author of " Ahasuerus" was also among the party When his Excellency entered the gardeu a brilliant display of fireworks took place. When the party entered the saloon there was a dead pause. Some evil minded person in the pit began to hiss, but that was speedily drowned in a loud cheer.

Later rnoM Tk.x.,s.?By an arrival at New Orleans, we have received our files of Texas papers. The news is not of much importance. We make the following extracts from the leadiog papers:? The report is current in town, that Col. James Morgan has been notified by the War Department that his services, as Naval Commissioner are dispensed with. If it is true, we presume that the President must have directed it with many regrets, as we know that he is a devoted personal friend of Col. Morgan's, and in directing the performance of this duty,he must have been governed alone by a sense of official obligation. When he was appointed, we know that not only the President but the Head of the Department entertained the fullest confidence that he would carry out the provisions of the law, whatever might be its requirements We feel perfectly sntisfied that if it is true that Col. Morgan has been removed, the President has conclusive evidence that he lias either violated or disregarded his instruction.? Brazos Farmer?(Houston's official paper.) Capt.

In reference to the failure of Texas to negotiate it commercial ticaty with the UuitedStatea, the Hous" ton Telegraph says:? " We have noticed with regret that the general tana of the Executive journal! and the letters nf our Charge d'Affair* Bt Washington, indicnto, that the Executive und h? Cabinet, are completely discouraged, aud h-tve given up all hope of i (t'eeiinic an advantageous treaty with the government ol the United States. <Vere it not that the matter it ot too serious a character, ws should really be excited to merriment, by their whining and doleful complaints about the licentiousness ol the press, to which they foolishly attribute the failure ol the treaty concluded by Mr. Wehster and Major Reily, and which >vas rrj-cted by the Senate of the United States. If out poliiicians would examine the history of the United States, they would find that the causes of the defeat of tne treaty originated not Irom any writing or acts of the editors or people of Texas; hut trom the injurious teudency ot the treaty itself. Iu foiming the treats, our government sought to obtain advantages and privileges which thegoi or unent ol the United States had never accorded to any other nation. Our ministers also sought to obtain privileges for the cititeua ol Texas, that the Senators of the United hiatus had repeatedly refused to grant to their own citizens."
