NKN" VORk I>V.HALI). new York, Tnraday, Auijii.i 20 1843. Amekican Akt and Artists?Th* Wai-H^QION Monument.? Quietly, aud api^i^uily without the stimuli of popular pat-onage, the fiae art have been wnhin the last ten or fifeen years, growing up into s;rength and beauty in our land. In painting ai<d nulF!U'e. America has giveu to the world names which it " will not willingly let de." The tiering inquiry?" wh? reads an American book V h^s been long ago effectually tile need ; and we are now in ti e Uirway of making the same saiUlactory die jh'imm oi uie accusation that America lias no ta^e lor the fine aria?no ariuta, and no soul to cpretiate ihein it she had. latleed, already hate we repelled this calumny; and it ia only the stupidly ignorant who can dare to repeat it. The works ol Power, Brackett, Grernough, and we proudly add oi Crawford, ar? worthy to stand, aide by side, with the noblest productions of the artists of ancient or modern times in the old world. Amongst our painters there is a marked, and moat gratifying advance towards high excellence. It is true that circumsiances will prtvent the extension oi that liberal i*tronage to our painters, which their brt thren enjoy in the father-land ; and, hence, the progress of the art will be somewhat impeded. But that a refined and educated taste lor that art, and un inclination to cherish and foater it, are increasing among-t ub, is undeniable ; and true gouiua is not altogether without its reward. And where is there a better field for the development of a high order ot excellence in this art 1 Where else can the artist receive more winning invitations to thai close and intimate communion with Nature in all her aspects?from the wildest magnificence to the most softened and subduing beauty, which is so t?sentially necessary to the right perception, and healthy growth ot those principles on the knowledge and practical application ol which his success depends 1 In architecture, alsa, the evidences of an improved taste are very apparent. The ecclesiastical edifices ?public buildings of other descriptions?cott. ees and villus?erected recently, or in processor erection, display a marked improvement in thisim portani brunch of the fine arts. In reflecting ou this subject, it has occurred 10 us, as it doubtless has to many of our readers, that the proposal to erect a great national monument to the "Fa her of his Country," affords a favorable opportunity of vindi. cam g the degree ol perfection to which architeclure has been brought in this country, and even mure than tins, of greatly advancing the art. ]t is the uuivcrsal expectation and desire that 1 his great work fchou.d be as |>erlect at. possible. And we are assured that it the enter) rise be conducied in the proper iiutnner, neiilier gemu*, nor money adtq'iate to the completion of the work in a manner to satisfy that expectation and desire, will be found wanting. In publishing some time since a description of the proposed monument, we did not suppose or intend to lead thu public to suppose ih*t any particular plan of the structure had been yet sehc'? d ns tlte ap' roved one. It would be obviously upj'Jet and impolitic to give the preference to any plan, unless adequate means had hem previously employed, l?T the pur pose ot laiity asceitaiuing the resources of the whole country, I>eeirous then that the work should be one worthy of its object and of the nation, and anxious to 6ee the occasion irop^r'y improved for the benefit ol archi ectuml art and science,we would the "Ateocistion" the propriety of requesting plaus from all ci mpetent i**reon* throrgioutthe Union.

Unless this mode be adopted, it w ill be difficult to carry out the enterprise succes>fully. The Recent Revolution in hie Chuch or Scotland ?Tne secession of upwards ol five hundred ministers with their congregations, from the established church ot Scotland, is one of the most lemarkable signs of the times, and as may readily be supposed, has excited universal interest on the other side cf the Atlantic It is the first decisive blow against that accurced union of church and state, which has bem cemented by the blood of an army of martyrs to the truth and liberty, and been one of the chielest obstacles to the advancement of treedom in the mother country. More, perhaps than any other event of the day, has it struck terror to the hearts of the supporters of the oppressive institutions ot Britain. It has well prep*red the way tor the annihilation of the iniquitous church establishment in Ireland, which has for so long aperied been the prolific source of discord and bloodshed. Every incident in this great movement is interesting to the friends of human liberty, and the delive ranee of religion from secular bondage, all the world over. We rejoice much to find that the calls ot the. emancipated churches for aid, have met ...?U ?~-. ll- I 1 1 mi ? Trim nutu mi<i grnrrui response. 1 IIP p'Opie of Scotland have already contributed $300,000?the city of London upwards of $50.000?the North oi Ireland $40 000?and almost all the continental relormed churches have testified their sympathy in an equally substantial and efficient manner. Numerous acta of individual munificence to an extraordinary extent, evince the remarkable enthusiasm which exists. In our own city the feeling amongst our Scottish tellow-citizens is very ardent. James Lennox and John Johnstone, m-rchantsof great wealth and respectability, have each contributed $2,500, and other instances of great liberality might be mentioned. All this is surely gratifying. We cannot but rejoice in the destruction of eystema of iniquity " by law established,' and in ihc re-organizmon ol one <>t the m<>? important churches of Christendom, we would fain perceive the harbinger of a bi tter day, when Christians of diflertnt denominations will live in harmony, no longer disgrace humanity aud their faith, by bigotry, intolerance, slid fana'ic hatred ol each other.

Yesterday was the day selected by the Tammany ( Hall Gauniy Convention of Delegates lor ihe four'h, niuih, aud eleventh wards, to decide the result oi their recent contested meetings. The polls were oi>ened at 10 o'clock in the forenoon, and at and about the same time ginger rop,root beer, gin smashers, brandy cock tail* and quaker punches were also brought inio action to sustain the patrio'ism, fire and gli ry to be produced oh the occasion. In the fourth ward the Calhoun, or anti Van Buren ticket, containing the names of Joseph Murphy, Thomas D. Bukfork and Aledad Piatt, contained as many var* ieus captions as (here were languages in Babel, aud was therefore well adapted to catch many a floating I m .ut naiu, miivug uuicr oi inc capuoas 01 their ticket we not'ced:? " Repeal Ticket." " Free Trade and Sailors' Rights." "Anti Caucus." " Oppored to the Quarter Deck Clique." " No Sailors' Home Monopoly," and " In faror of the District System." The opposition ticke\ containing the the names ol Daniel C. Pewtt, John H. Tenure, and Henry Cornell, was far more significant and definite in its i mottoes, as one contained " Delegates in lavor of Mirtin Van Bnren," i And the oiher, "Anti Tyler Ticket." < " No Custsm House Dictation." i There was a large and crowded attendance at i the old Shakspeure, where the poll was In Id during the day, and John Amirall lead the forces en one i 1 side, while Tom Doyle rallied strength on the i oiher. After an enormous destruction of more hi I cotiol than has been destroyed in that vicinity 'or I many a day, the poll was closed at 8 o'clock, and ttte following annonuced as the result s? i Calhoun. ^ Van Bunn. ^ | I MVUIIB u- Ol^ftlUlU, ?UM I ^BUiriVilDUIt) in Joseph Murphy, 437 John H. Tenure, 447 Med a J Piatt, 440 | Henry Cornell, 446 The result, therefore, was, that one Calhoun and two Van Buren men were chosen. A small fight took place between D >yle, the Dock Master of the ward, and a man named tullivan, not "Yankee," in which Doyle came ofi the best kicked of the two. No other blottd shed. The Nin'hWard was the great eoene of conflict, as here ihe "Old Hunkers" and the "Young Democracy" were brought into open array. At an early hour the battled forces were marshalled for the fray, aiid a long, arduous and sometimes turbulent combat ensued. Old J? flerson Hall has rarely seen more excitement, and with now and then an ellusion of patriotism that skinned the sconce of some 0| pouent, all jassed off very quiet until ihe close of the day, when a few black eyes and bloody noses were passed round, as remembrances ot the contest. The poll closed at 8 o'clock, when the following was announced as the result:? Calhoun. Van Buren. JameiH Sujdam, 8M Berjimin F. Cornell, 702 DavitlC Broiltrick, 816 George L. Fradenbu*gh,7i'3 Utoige Gieen, 817 James Qogckenbush, 700 The three Calhoun delegates were declared elected by a majority of 119 on the two highest candidates. A body of watchmen assembled about the house after the p?ll wus closed, and a few introduced themselves into the room where the poll was held, as it was closing, but were immediately requested to retire, by order of the inspector*, as their services were not needed inside. They complied, c and perfect order reigaed until the vote was an- ^ nounced, when three cheers followed " lor Calhoun j, and the district system." v la the Eleventh Ward, the election was only for ? two delegates, one having been accepted by the J convention. One ticket was headed t ? reopiea iicaei." ? " In favor of ihe District System." ' " F?>r Prrsidtnt, Van Buren " And contained the names of Joseph Bit-hop ar.d Nicholas Fiaher, as delegates. The other was headed I "For Van Bursn," And contained the names of Charles J. Dodge and Nicholas Fisher. The latter name being on both | tickets, the contest was therefore between Dadge and Bishop, the latter of whom had avowed that it , elected, he would support any candidate the meet- | ing would recommend. The result was, that Dodge, | ttie decided Van Buren delegate, was choten by a | majority of thirty-three votes, and Fisher elect- , ed without opposition. The district system , was avowed to be applicable to the ( voting ior delegates by the districts of the' Wards, and at a mass meeting of the Ward. , Hundreds were no doubt deceived by this head- , ing, which to them was supposed to contain an expression of feeling in favor of the selection of delegates to the National Convention by Congressional districts. It was a small species of deception, as no , doubt a majority of the Ward are in favor of such a choice of selection of delegates. The county convention meets this evening at half past 7 o'clock at Tammany Hall, when much fun is anticipated. Reformation of tue Staoi..?We lave received the following communication from an intelligent ^ ; German citizen. He complains of a long-lamented j evil, and althcu^hthe subject has been so repeatedly < brought before the public, yet we cannot refuse in- t senion to our correspondent's article; besides, he | presents the matter pretty forcibly:? ? Mr. Editor?Dear Sir?I have read with plea- l Buru in your|?ai>er, an article headed "The state aud % progress of the Diama," and 1 will say that 1 tally ^ agree with the writer?but he forgot the greatest of all the causes which have contributed to the degradation of the drama.

The gallery adjoining the lobby generally is ti led with j> rsonsof both sexes and all agefc, the contagion ol whose presence is most polluting and dangerous.

Yours reepectlully, E. V. We bhall see whether, under the ntw rtgime at the Park, this evil will be permitted to exist. We learn from the N. 0. Diamond thatiduf | loon place on the 19 h injt ontheBnynu road, wiih small ewordi, between Mr. Jofeph Dyer and Mr. Labianc, in which Mr. Dyer received nineteen wounds, *nd Mr. Liblanc three, none of .which are mortal. t. * Yklijow Fstbr.?Thf> schooner V?ntU~reeentlv discharged at Aondout, Ulster county, sailed on Thursday lor Boston,uuder commit nd ol Capt Shute Captain Pierce, her previous commander, who was reported as dead of yellow fever, was in thin city an Saturday, looking as yellow as a doubloon, and ifter concluding his business, left lor Bangor by steamboat and railroad. He taid he had beeH laid up with some kind of billious fever, at Roudout, but whether it was the " Yellow Jock" or not he couM not say. Three persons have died in the vicinity where th< vessel discharged her cargo. One wxs hii IriehmHn who had been previously injured on the canal ai Rondout?the second also an Irishman who had been engaged in unloading the cargo of the vrhwl, and the third a clerk in a store nn the wharf near where the vessel laid. All these person^ had been indulging in eating pine apples that were on board the vessel while at Rondout. Dr. Vache, the Resident Physician, lelt this city on Sunday evening to vuit Rondout, and make lull examination into all particulars attending the death of these persons or others, il any have taken place since. In the meantime all further communication with Rondout is strictly prohibited, by the proclamation ol Alderman Purdv. the actinz Mnvnr. urnler the severest penalties of the law. Vessels arriving from that port are cut allowed to land at our wharves, and steamboats are forbidden to land passengers. Various rumors are in circulation relative to the existence of disease at Iiondout, and we understand that letters have been sent to this city giviag Dut statements of additional deaths. Ouo thing is certain, that the persons who ha/s lied from the strange disease, all partook, more or less, cf the pine apples that had been brought by her from Guadaloupe, where the yellow lever was raging. Nothing resembling a case of yellow fever has occurred in our city, which is more healthy than it iias been for several years past at this season of the pear. The vessel supposed to have introduced the jisease having left for Boston, and all communiculon between Iiondout and this city being effectually stopped for the present, not a particle of danger may >e apprehended by those anxious to return to their tomes, or Btrangers about to visit this city. As any additional information from Kingston will )e anxiously Bought, we subjoin another letter, which has been received in this city from Mr. Elomeyn, as follows:? Kingston, N. Y , Aug. 27,1W3 Among the cases mentioned in my letu-r ot Frilty lust, there was another death on that (Ihv, ['otal deaths three,) and in all, up to last evening, .welve to filteen cases, some ?[ which are yet crit | sal, while others are hoped to be out of danger rhis morning presents three additional cases, bin he fact, whether originating from direct communication witn the schooner or from other intercourse with the diseased persons, or the pestilential disease it that place, I have not been able to ascertain, in iruth, it is difficult, and I might say has been impossible to obtain particulars from our neighbors there respecting the matter. Vet I have been carelul in obtaining my information from reliable sources. The attending physician, however, has defined its character thus:?"In New York or the South, it would be yellow fever, but in the country it is billi3us " it is understood here that black vomit and yellowness have distinctly characterized the cases vhich have terminated in death. I should not have troubled you with this second 'ommunication were it not that the cases of to-day !in my opinion,) may furnish an important subjec of nquiry relative to this disease. Long experience las established the theory that yellow fever is not ontagious in the countr); but we have now tor the irat time a vessel bringing the virus directly to one f our populous villages, and there communicating i in itsorigiual form and character. It may be ot ast importance as well in relation to a review ot iur quarantine regulations as to the cause ot huma lity, that the fac's and circumstances should be ully investigated. TheBe are mere rude suggesions for your city Fathers, and ihe medical proleslion will be able to understand th'-m, although not :x, ressed in the latguage of the schools I am roure, fee. h M Kumkyn. P. S. One more death since this was closed. H. M R. The promptitude with which the city auihoritieB have acted is creditable to them, and although we yettorday morning. The testimony given on Saturday was mainly confined to proo't of bin possession ol much money, and the manner in which hec*pende.1 i?.

Carter-not sufficient, in our opinion, to warrant his committal on so serious a charge Hi' trial has hern proloniffd unnecessarily hj thu admission of murh irrelevant testimony. OO" Don't forget the inter-*ling performances a" Vauxhall to-night. It if the mo*t comfortable p| ce of amusement in tht city. have no yellow fever here, we do not the leaa hold Dr. Van Hovenburg blameable. Some of our contemporaries have misunderstood the course which we have thought proper to pursue in this matter. It is admitted on all hands that the health officer allowed an infected vessel to go to Kingston, in defiance of his legal obligations to the contrary, and lor that we held him respons ble, and fur all the mischief which has ensued. And we do so, because the permission for such a vessel to go to Kingston would lead to the same permission i? visit New York, and it is much wiser to prevent evil than to complain of it when it has occurred. And the result is exceedingly gratifying, for the comments which we and othere made, have aroused our Board of Health to greater diligence and watchfulness, and New York will oe kept free from so fatal a pestilence. No danger now exists; but we owe nothing to Dr. Van Hovenburg City Intelligence.

The public nrt well acquainted with tne particulars winch led to this meeting, and as they were 6tated in our ppp-r of Thurs-day, we do not deem it necessary tortUr lo (hem again. The parlies met at six o'clock, at "the oaks," a short distance trom the Geniilly road. The distance agreed upon was tony yard*, and the weapoub selected double-barrelled shot guns, t* be loaded with ball?the parties to tire between the words one and five They fought tour rounds, the tesult ol which was as follows:?

Stcond round.?Both fired single barrels at intervals Mr. Ldbranctie's second barrel struck the pantaloons of Mr Hueston, and passed through the kne'sof them, without touching the fl?sb Third tourul.?Mr. Labranche fired both barrels at the same time ; the balls passed through the hat of Mr. Hueston, about two inches apart. Fourth round ?Mr. Hutston fired first. Mr. Labrant-he's shot took efiect in the left side, on the last rio, and passed out 011 the other side, ranging low down. lie threw his gun forward, and fell back at full length on the ground. The wound first pronounced mortal by the physicians in attendance The pdrties exhibited on the ground the utmost coolness and fortitude. Mr. Hueeton was placed on a liner and carried to a house near the ground. We art happy to state that at a late hour last night, hopes were entertained ot hia recovery. P. 8 lVlost sincerely do we regret the duty that devolves upon ua oi announcing the death of Mr. Hurston. He expired at half past 11 o'clock, in the fall possession of his mental (acuities Af?w days before the meeting, the fallowing paragraph appeared in a New Orleans paper, which may explain the immediate cause of the duel A Iracas occurred last night at the St Charles, between Mr. Hueston, of the Baton Rouge Gazette, and Mr. Librauche, member of Congress elect tiom the Second District, growing out of an editorial article which api>eared in the latt number ot the Gazette, reflecting severely upon the Congressional Delegation of Louisiana in the next Congress The parties were separated before Berious injury resulted to either. To the Editor of the paper in which this appeared, Mr. Huestou thus addressed himself:? I regret exceedingly that my good friends of th? Herald, should have brought my jirivate hfTtirs before the public. An editor tnough 1 am, 1 cannot conceive that my actions as an individual, or what may occur to me as an individual, belong more to the public, or ere more interesting to them, than what is done by, or happens to other men. But since it has been stated that I liad a difference with Mr. Labranche, I must say, this is a mistake. A person, in company with two or three others, did I'Otne and ask my name on Wednesday evening, while 1 was playing a game of billiards with a li end in the St. Charles Exchange, and when I nswered So it, one of the company threw his arms nround my arms and body, and endeavored to hold me, white the person who had asked my name struck me on the head with a stick. I threw the man who had taken hold of me, ditengoged myself from hi in, and turned to look for the one who had useii the stick. He was gone. I was informed afterward.-* that this man was Mr. Alcee Labranche, member elect to Congress, from the Second Congressional District, Louisiana. I state this to correct ihe error in the Herald, (an error uoiutentioual) and lor that purpo.-e alone. 1 had no dispute, or difficulty, or fight, or fracas with Mr. Labranche. He absented himself from the place too soon to allow me that pleasure. j. uukston. die following rejoinder was subsequently published by friends of Mr. Labranche:? To ths Public.?The undesigned have perused with surprise th? statement given in the Herald of this morning by Mr. Hueston, editor uf the Baton Rogue GrtZttte, relative to the chastisement inflicted upon bim by Mr. Alcee Labranche, for a false and shamelul publication respecting mat genMeman In that statement ot Mr. Hues-ton, there is not h single word of truth. He asserts that Mr Labranche struck nim while he was held m the arms ot one ol the friends who accompanied him, and that when he disengaged himself, Mr. L whs hurrying away The following is a true and correct aecount of .h. affair from beginning to end. Mr. ^aOr.u che intruded to leave to*n at 3 o'clock on Wednesday last, when one of his iriendb i>kioei! .n h;.J hands the pa|>cr containing the article from the Maion Rouge Gazette, in which lie was so infamously abused.? Hearing that Mr. H'lee'on, the editor ' { that paper, was in town, he immediately went in pursuit ol him, but was unable to find him till the evening, when he met with him in the billiard room of ihe St. Charles Hotel. The undersigned, perceiving the excited state of Mr. Labranche'd mind, and aware of his great bodily strength, accompanied him for no other purpose than to prevent him from usii,g 100 much violence upon Mr. Hueston.
