It is there fore ot the highest importance to loth that a reciprocal com uerce should '?e encouraged, as well on our par', for ihe comnirr< ial welfare ot tne people, as for the eucounigfrm rt ol ihe commercial marine. Since the close ot the last war the U States has become more coii?p euous on the theatre of the world, and his tnk? n its proper part in the movement ?t events. In 179 i the population of Ei g and iind Wales was 8 872.980, and the IT States 3 92i? 827 T? lfilllll,.,u.?.L.I.n ?f l,'?nl u n /I W* .

States suddenly appeared as a maritime power?fsuch strength and address,that she triumphed in every coi.fl ct The ministersol Great Britain, France and Russia, theu discovered on what theatre the relative power and dominion of nations mint be hereatier adjusted. From that m'tnei.t Eag'aud h*s removd from its shipping, restriction aiter restriction, in wrder that it may the better compete with foreign powers Tn'n country Ihs not been true to us own po'icy nor to its position in relation to the condition of the rest of the world. Under pretence of " protection," it has loaded the shipping with taxes, and tlien nought in discriminating duties a remedy for evils of its own creating Ddniet Webster, E*q . in his speech in the United Slates Senate, in 1829, on the tariff, remarked as follows The shipping interest of thi" country has made its wav t>y its own enterprize.

To suppose that two na.ion*, haviue intercourse wrh eacn o'her, can serure each to itself ? decided advantsg*- in that inttroourse, i* little le?a than an absurdity; and this is the abstir dity of di criminating duties. Still le*? reason is th-re for the idea that our ship owners hold the excluaiv. enjo>m-nt of the coasting trade, o <lyhy virtue oftfie law which secures it to their exclusive employment. The miblic mind in ho'h hemispheres has been gradually awakening to the whole list of ah?urd ti?s, one of which the honorable g-ntlenun (>ointed out While the United Slates have not only done nothing towards an enlightened system ot national intercourse. Great Britain fas made great tdvanceH in lree trade. Mr Pitt, in 1783, boldly recommend ed a system of reciprocity, which would Uave doubled tne resources of the empire, if it had not beeu lost sight ot in the wars which followed. His propo Bit ion with the United States was substantially that which VIr Wehiter ha-? rec-ntly brought forward; a treaty with Franc was actually concluded, embracing some ot th- staulesof the two countries,and receiving their reciprocal importation at duties of 1(1 a 12 percent ad valorem. Th* revolution which tol lowed put an end to the treaty. In 1815, the navi gation act was virtually abolished, and treaties with all uationagradu illy brought about; the emancipation ot the c-lonies followed, succeeded by a gradual reduction of duties, in which important step* have been taken during the past year In ali this time, the United States have shown no spirit of conces>ion. and it is to be h'?ped that reciprocity will now be ihe watch word FrKTHER News from RoMwcT.?Dr Forry, in his regular bulletin from Kondout to the resident physician yesterday, states that there were wily three cases of serious disease in that place at the hour of writing, and that since last Friday no new leases pauakmg of the character of the prevail ng epidemic, had been reported.

What his ultimate object la, wr hive already shown, and now we give his slanderous condemnation ol hit own countrymen, who have sought our shores as u better held tor their honest industry. From his Dublin Corn Exchange speech, Irom which we yesterday made some extracts, we copy the following passage:? " He would not liave dwelt so long on the nubject but for a calamity, which wit an exceedingly vffl'i-tmg one It wan that the Irish in America were sai<l to he themobt cruel ol rny clas* to the people of color, th-?t they behave, even tn>? hid? the free people ol cotor?with more roiiti-ui|>i huh nuri-niiesa man tali) nuicrs. \vas inat a ra lumny towards |rt-Un I.

It resembled the principle that actuated the Orangemen in Ireland of hating those whom they iijure. The testimony of Lord Morpeth would weigh him down until he would hear on undoubted proof that thai feeling was altered by their countrymen in *1mi rica It wasiiouhly base in them as Irishmen to act so. At home, they were pious, kindly, and affectionate; but th y would appear to lose all their generous feelings in the voyage across the Atlantic, and having denuded ihemseivek ot everything else on leaving tbeircountry,they shmid alio denude themselves ot Irish virtue. Titus he shows that 60 long as the Irish now resi deni in the United States confined their extriions to the promotion of Irish Repeal, in his estimation they will remain " doubly base," devoid of all " generous ( elinge," and " denuded of lri? h virtue."? Their proneness " to that absurd notion of aristocracy?the filthy aristocracy of the skin," must give way to an affectionate attachment to and an amalsamatisn with the " niggers," or the Dictator will continue to be " weighed down by the testimony ol Lord Morpeth." Irish Repeal and American Abol tton, must be inseperably united or Daniel O'Connell will remain very angry with his naughty countrymen. But to the credit of the Irish residents hi the United States, who have had opportunities to judge for themselves in these matters, they have thown a disposition not to submit to the dictation ot the Liberator, whereat he has grown wantonly rampant and scolds like a very drab. His temper partook strongly of the verjuice, on the day on which this memorable si?eech wasdelivered. He quarrelled With the slave owners nnd with slavery, nnrl vet lie exhibited tSe very gall ol bitterness because his antislavery speech was published in Americau papers.? He pouts with his countrymen here, and calls them hard names for not being abolitionists, and yet he averted that "for some of the American abolitionists he entertained the most sovereign contempt."? "William Lloyd (Jarrison on religious subjects appeared to be something of a maniac," and the Liberator solemnly declared he would not "belong to the same party with such a man." The Methodists iu England escaped not, and towards them and one ol their mo,?t distinguehed preachers, he indulged in the following bastard wit:? He u at not much attached to the Wesley an Methodists, who w?re another class ot abolitionists. They were the most decided fanatici ol tho present day. They appear in 'act to think that the high character they claim tor th-ir superiority over other men in the love of God gives them ar &ht to h-;te their fellow-man exceedingly (hear and laughter ) Jihez Bunting was the nanieol the Pope ol the Methodists (1 .ughter.) A fellow who looked exceedingly like his name. Tb?y had in fact to imag tie ? iihi kind of a fellow jahp / Bunting must be, and they had exactly the kind ot thing Uint he reallv was. (Lutid laughter.) But we have given enough of this tunny ebullition of tftc Liberator to amuse our readers for some time to come. We really must, however, counsel Him 10 cultivate more t ipianimity ol temper. J)a nit 1 must n?t Ix'c ni?* vixenish in his old age, or tit; ill disturb the -erenity ol his declining years.

Yes, the creat day which the tweniy-bix Bover-ign Slates had marked &j cue destined to carry hy iif actions, a political revolution throughout the land, has roll'd away. The 5th ol September, 18J3, if no more ; and now let ns chronicle th? political doings ot thisdav. At-loYlrrk tliis A. M., lli^ secret caucus brought out a direct answer to the <|uestionof endorsing Mr. Van Buren tor the next prtsidency. Ex-l>t>veriior Marcy und Samuel Young both came out, contrary to.their former expressed preferences, and sustained the measure to the utmost of their ability. Mr. 11. D. Davie, the " roarer," of Dutchess county, was by general concat made prime mover of the caucus, and drillergeneral ot the forces?(it is said Mr. Davis has lor the last six months expressed his preference tor Mr. Calhoun ) Altera whole night of violent manuvering the convention system ol appointing the delegate* to the National Convention was agreed upon. At 10 o'clock, A. M , the members of the convention besan marching oil' in squads for the Methodist Church, the building which had been selected by the Democratic Association, of Syracuse, for holding the convention. This church is a very beautiful brick building capable ot accommodating about one thousand people. It is situated on the suburbs ot the village, about half a mile from Syracuse House and Railroad Depot. At precisely 11 o'clock the Convention was called to order by appointing Mr. Hathaway, of Chemung county, chairman, pro tern., and Mr. Legar, of Or leans county, and Mr. Strong, of Renssalear county, secretaries, pro tem. The roll was then called over (from the Albany Argus,) and one hundred nnd twenty fivemembersanswered to their names. Tk r<were three absentees, viz: one from Rockland, one from Green, and one trom Couitland. The nexi motion was that ttie delegates proceed at once to hand in to the Secretaries their credentials. No sooner was tins motion made than some sixty members were upon the floor, calling out at the top ol their voices, "Mr- Chairman," says one, "I have no credentials, the meeting in my county was so slim they did not do their business up in parlimenta rytorm " Says another, "Ihavu't any credentials, but 1 was told by my neighbors that the tolks wanted me to go to Syracuse." Another, " 1 don't koow what to do, I have always attended to the Democratic interests ot my couuty without any meetings Similar excuses were given tor the non-possession ot credentials by about twu-ihirds of the convention. A motion was then made and carried that all memoers whose seats were not contested, should be ieceived ; this matter being settled, a motion was made that the convention proceed to ballot for Pre sident, and the following was the result ot th? vote: For WM L MAR T 79 votes. " SuMvt'L Yursu 40 " " JACOB SOUTHKRLAND 3 " " HIHAM DLHIO 1 " " Blank 1 " Total 134 Neceaaury for a choice 63 Mr. Marcy was. therefore, declared duly elected. Mr. Gardner, ot Saratoga, and Mr. Reynolds, ol C Jurtland, were sppointed a committee to conduct the President to the chair. Mr Marcy on taking the chair, offered a lew pertinent rt marks, asking the indulgeBce ol the Convention in sustaining him in his intricate duties, (tec. Arc. |A motion was then made, that a committee ot eight from each Senatorial district, be appointed to select and report the other officers for the Convention. The Chair appointed the committee, and on motion the Convention took a recess for one hour. Ai 2 o'clock, P.

In an instant, Mr. Daniel B.Taylor trom the city of New York, rose aud offered a resolution, the purport of which was, mat the Convention recommend to the dcinocraiic electors ot the State, the " District System" as the proper mode of choosing delegates to the National Convention. The presentation of this resolution tully indicated the immediate approach of war. This resolution was laid unon ilie table lor the time being, in order to let if come up after the rejtort of resolutions was received. On ihe motion of it. D. Davis, the President appointed the following committee lo report resoiu tions (or the Convention :? R. D Davis, of Dutches Co.; S. Watetbury, of New York; J. Houck, Jr., of Schoharte: R. H Gillets, of il. Lawrence; H. Denio. of Oneida ; 3 T. Hathawav, Jr , of Chemung; Wm. Taylor, of Onondago; H. Gardner, of Monroe. The Committee, after an absence of about ten minutes, r'turned, and Mr Davis, the Chairman ol ?tie Committee, reported and read a long list <>f resolutions, endorsing Martin Van i}uken as (he pro ;>er candidate for the next President?approving ol the course of Governor Bouck, aud recommending the Convention mod" of appointing delegates to the Convention, and declaring the "District system" unjust, and assorting that it would work -erious injustice to the Empire State. The resolutions were received with tremendous bursts of a(>,.laust\ After completing the reading of the resolutions, Mr. Davis addressed the Convention in a most powerful s<rain, reviewing the various acts of injustice towards Mr. Van Huren, and expressing his entire conviction of the returning good sense ol the people in favor of Mr. Van Buren. Mr. Hathaway, >fChemung, rose and offered aft w forcible remarks in opposition to the resolufon in the report recommending the Conventional System of appointing delegates to th? National Convention. He was followed by Mr. Taylor, of New York, who followed Mr. Divis through his whole argument, and opposed ihe position taken by him throughout ? vlr. Taylor replied, in his argument, upon s atisfies and by them clearly showed that Mr. V*n Buren, , never in his public career had the popular feeling of the democracy with him. "That when he war. elected Governor of this State he ran tvso thousand 1 oeiiad the popular vote, aud in every State in the i Union in 1840, he ran greatly behind his ticket and the admitted strength of the party."And "what," said Mr.T does thegentleman from Dutchess mean! ?where does he fiud facts to sustain him in saying that Mr. Van Buren never stood so popular before the democracy as at the present moment 1 1 can i?ll k>m ti.ut I com#' from that metropolis ?hich enables me to know something of (he public feeling on line subject, and the position the gentlemun lakes is without fortification?'tin true the democratic prexb throughout the Union is in the hands of Mr. Van Buren's old friends. It was from his administration they last received succor, and to him they cleave for h renewal. Hut it is to the great m uss ol ihe|>eoplewe must look for popular feeling. And in tins light what do we behold ??wrang<iiig and discord pervading almost every section ol 'lie Union as well as in this Stale, and all upon the very question ol ^an Buren or no Van Burt n. The old arilul battle armory has been set in motion to secure Ina ie-nomination. Here, belore, me stands the undeniable proof. A Convention numbering one hundred and twenty eight members, ap|?earing here ?? throw the lasso over the 25(),0(W democ atic votes hi the Siate of New York. By what auilority? Why, oy their own confession, they appear here by an tuthority not exceeding nine thousand people.? And yei we are told they speak the sentimentsof niiie-ti nths ol the whole democracy ol the State. I bis in the very lace ol discord, such as was never nefor*1 witnessed in the Union I admit that President making his sectionally commenced ? Tne strings have been touched?the luie hith sent its no'es abroad, but Knn's lifirp haih yet to sound and'reem- voice !>r obeyed. Mr.T then reviewed ' length the great changes in public feelint in thi?? ^tate ouring Go* M'rcy'n administration, showing i change ol votea ol lO.tyxl in one y? ar. He clwsed* marks bj pTHMf the "district syetern," aud lnxHt'd (hat if we acknow.edge the law districting "Ui State, we must send delegates to Baltimore.

It was not usual for the dog to be fastened in the shop, as he always slept in the room with Mr Smith. I turned towards the house and saw the east window broken out, and saw that the old man had not beeu in bed) I did not ?ee any mark on the cellar door; 1 then went in Iront of the house and saw a nowder cannister along side of the front door. I did not look to see if there was any powder in it: I then looked in the window, acd saw tho old woman lying on the fl >or, I then started and ran home, and told my wife, and then went and told Mr. Jellicks; he went t ark to the house, and staid until Charles Delsey came. We then went in the house and found Mr. and Mrs Smith dead, and Mr. Smith half burnt up; his head laid on the edge of the floor, and his legs were burnt; in tact he was burnt up to his waist: he was lying in front ol the fire; he generally sat in front of the fire place, with his feet up against the fender; he was generally drowsv in the evening; the old lady was lying between him and the window; she was quite dead; there were two places of blood near where she laid, clnse by her feef; 1 was in the house when tho Coroner r.ame;the bodies were in the same position as when 1 first saw them: I saw a hammer on the chest in the south east room where the old man slept; the hammer was always kept in the work hop, three rods east of the house; I never saw it in the east room before; the hammer now shown me it the same; I saw the de"k open; it stood in the southeast corner of the room; Giesler usually slept up stairs; we found i stock, a pair of stockings, a tobacco box, and a small io. k. They belonged to the prisonei; 1 do notknowof lis having any other wearing apparel Thp next I saw >f Giesler w. s in the custody of Sheriff Brush. Crnsi-examined by Joachimssos?The tobacco box was "ormerly mine, and I swapped wi'.h Giesler; I do not reiollect what conversation 1 hud with the prisoner; lean, lot say positively if the stockings belonged <o him; 1 did lot examine the desk, which was open ill the room, at ;he time; I have never stated in a former deposition that :he stockings, sic. were found a day or two afterwatds.

There were two other wounds on the back part of his head, which went into the substance o( the brain. Neiie of the wound* could have been inflicted by his tailing from his chair; it appeared to me to bo quite evident that he was sitting in the chair when he received the blows. The wound on the posterior part ot the head would be sutH^ieut to cause instant death. His countenance appeared mild and plw id, as if the first bio'v caused his death. Mr? Smith was lying on the floor, a f:-w feet distant from Mr. Smith She n.ii lyinp with her head on oneof her arms There ware six wounds on her head; her skull was iractured in four pUrer.

This witness whs cross-examined at great length, but nothing of importance was clicited. Adjourned until to-morrow at 9 o'clock, A. M. Despekation Occasioned by Gaming?The following paragrapli we give as we received it:? A few evenings ego, a young man, connected with some of our most genteel (amities, was fleeced out of a considerable amount of money in one of the fashionable gambling houses in the centre of our city. The money was lost at faro, and, excited by liquor, and maddened by the defeat, he snatched a pistwl, lying in an open drawer, and fired at his op ponent in play. Tne ball inflicted but a slight flesh wound, entering the wall opposite. We hear the affair has been hushed up by the interference of fneiids Another warning to young men. Qrj- The new Pantomime of the Ravels is still exceedingly attractive. The complicated machinery works with the rapidity of thought, and its effects are pleasure and surprise. Last night, notwithstanding the change in the atmosphere, the theatre was crowded as usual. The Bowery Amphitheatre was also well attended. There we perceived tome valuable additions to the company as well aschanges in the performances ol this neat and well regulated establishment. Rockwell, the Ducrow of this Western continent, we observe, has made a running visit to tnis city, leavirg his admirable company, now on its summer circuit, in charge of his partner, Mr. Stone. We hope the object of his visit is to complete arrangements for an American Astley's, which we must and we understand are lo have ? S'ich a place of amusement, we are inclined to think, will take precedence of all others for the ensuing winter. We are led to this conclusion by a consideration of preparations and pro|>ects elsewhere, which have not jiintifi^d expectation.

The deep thrilling emotion produced by the brilliancy of his own peculiar songs, was happily relieved by ilie humor and choice w it of his comic interludes?the whole forming a rich feast of intellectual enjoyment.

If the statement of Mr. Whiting is correct, which wc doubt mot for an instant, what other important service did Thompson render the police, that he is now allowed to prowl through the streets of our city, and when his rascalities are exposed through the publ:c press, to havu the unblushing impudence to thrust his oarcase into a publishing office to uak the author of the article 7 As thu District Attorney has publicly avowed that he had no kuowledgeot the release ot Thompson Irom the six indictm -nts found against him, end also, that he refused to graut such release,on tho alleged confessions and exposures as made by him in the police office, it la presumed, and bis high and responsible station demands, that he should call for the re-arrest of this escaped thief, and pun* ish him according to his deserts. These questions are ask ed Irom a sense ol public duty that has always prompted ui to apeuk when such c rogue is set at liberty by ray sterioui influence. More anon. Honks iy is thk safcst Policv ? A day or two since a man named William Penlson, carpenter, of 282 Broome atreet and 4 Spring street, was arrested by a citizen, on ( uipicion of having attempted to pass a fa<) bill of the Charleston Bunk, South Carolina, in the pu>chaseol sonic trifling article. Suspicion was excited from the fact that several bills of the same denomination were passed in the same vicinity within thespaceof a lew hours, but upon investigation the one ottered, as well as the others, were found to be genuine. Their being some mystery in the nflair, and Penlson not being able to satisly the police Justice Irom whence he obtained the bills, he was held to bail to answer any charge that might be alleged against him. Since then it has Deen ascertained that eight $20 bills of the Charleston Bank were lost a lew days since iu a porkn wallet containing papers of value. The pre sumption, therefore, is that Penlson found the pocket hook and then passed otf the notes, as above stated. The offence is constructive larceny. A Black Woman Shot ?An affair came off yesterday at the house of Gerard Banson, tne black dog killer, No 345 Madinon street, in which a black woman, named Lydia Williams, was shot by James R. Livingston, also a black. 1 appears that be went to the house of Banson about noon yesterday for the purpose of getting some clothes, which Pnillis Banaonuasto washlorhim. He there met Banson and his daughter Lydia Williams, Janet Amison, Kllen Voorhies and Wm. Vandyke. While scuttling and fooling together, Livingston took up a shot gun, which was standing in the corner, with which Benson was killed raanyan unfortunate dog,and levelled it at Lydia William*, saying he would shoot her. He returned the gun to the corner, and the scuffling recommenced ? Soon after, he again took up the gun, leveiled it, and fired, and the contents entered the head of Lydia rear the ri?httemple, passed through the lower part of the brain and came out at the left eye, taking the eye with it and t>ait of the socket. All the parties were anestad and committal by Aldetman Nash. The woman was attended by Dr Archer and Dr. Charles Marsh, and at 5 o'clock last night it was thought she could not survive many hours Wheth' r the act was intended or not, on the part of Livingston, will be determined at the investigation which will take place this morning before the Coroner, should the womau have died, as was expected last evening.

Gray, is a dry gond* dealer in Citharine street, and h-xl engaged the nlaintifl us a clerk, at a salary of $225, with board, washing and lodging, per auauti. The plaintiff was reengaged the aecoiid year, which wa? to terminate about March last, but a dixpute having arisen, in consequence of the defendant r< ijuning his clerks to sit down to their meals with his servants, the plaintiff, about the middle ot Jannory, was ordered to quit the stole, under pain of b?ing ejected by a Police officer. He complied; having waited for 3uch a proceeding, in order to have a claim for ihf hulnnca nf hia tolorw niKi?K .... , nuiv u naoiwuv ^4UVi V/U March 24th. he gavu an order to hii brother lor $100 worth of goods, which order wai accepted and paid. A subsequent order, for a similar amount, was presented and refined, and for thiithii present action i* brougM. For the defence, which was moat irregularly and slo venly conducted by the counsel, who occupied the entire day witn a case, which, as the Judge very properly remarked, could have bteu diapoted ol in one hour, offered to prove by an array of Catharine street dealers, a very pretty maiden clerk, and others, that the plaintiff as not worth the sulary paid him- -that be had forfeited all claim to salary by competing with his employer in the tra<le of window shades, he having had a quantity painted while clerk for bis own bem fit and ii?k;atid that his leaving his situation was *1 his own accord, and for improper conduct. The Judge held to the validity of the contract, inasmuch as the defendant bail accepted the tint order after the plaintiff had lelt his tore; that the salary earned by tbe plaintiff lor the balance of the year, in the employ of another merchant, should be accounted to the credit of the defendant, after deducting the price paid lor board, &.<;., and that the lact of clerks being hired by others for $100 per year, equal, it not superior, to the plaintiff as salesmen and general cl.ik", was no graund on which to rest a defence, why the 'Ull agreement should not be kept in the present instance. As regards the window shadts, it was ahown by tbe plaintiff that he had purchased the mnslin out ot hi. own money, with the intention of commencing business lor himself niter the term of his agreement had ended; that alter the separation, the defendant had Altered to purchase the entire itock ol shade* liom the plaint'H on condition, which was given in wiiting, that he ahouM not set up in the same business within the circle of five blocks The defendant not keepii g his part of the contract, the plaintiff open'd so opposition establishment, and hence the effort to withhold from him his salary.

The counsel for the plaintili produced several witnesses, vho proved that alter the race war. won, both l>oat* were nulled to the stairs landing; at the Castle Ourdt n bridge, the Chapman having the inside beith. On nearing, Robert* and Bavins were standing up in the stern sheeU; and Bevins accused 11 >l?et ? with hnving been guilty of uniairiieix in the race, which was denied, and Bevina teeing Roberts leaving the boat, sprnug at him, but missed his aim and fell into the water, Robert* gaining the step* in safety, though Charles l'lace Jr. one of the witnesses, swore that bsforo Roberts left tne boat, lie hhw uim receive a blow frcun the defendant. The landing of the rival crew* natunlly drew their respective fi lends to the spot to wel come the conquproi mid to hear fiom the conquered the history of their defeat The altercation between the par ties in this suit was thus continued. After Bevins had betn rescued, and had reached the platform of the bridge there, as Mr. Ingeisoll states, he reiterated the charge of dishonorable conduct in the crew of the Chapman, and made an attempt to assault Roberts, who told him not to strike him, as he had not done any thing to injure him? that he was angry only because he was defeated- IUibeits did nat attempt to return the blow, as all the witnesses stated. Bevius still charged Roberts with cheating hit boat out of the race, and followed Roberts into thea<*jicent boat house, where he was about changing his clothes. There the partie* met I'ase to face, ami Bevins struck Roberts two blows, seriously injuring his face, blacking both his eyes. This was witnessed by John T. Ward and John T. Rollins, who being friends to both, followed them in, nnd used their joint itfortsto separate them. In reply to a question, Bevins told Rollins that Roberts had pushed him into the water, and be came in to the room to have satisfaction of him?that the race was not (airly won, and he was ready again to run it over lor any|amount. Roberts did not appearto act at all on the defensive, timply contenting himself with saying that he would make Blevins pay for such conduct, and claiming the prize as his bv right of conquest. The defence offered to prove by the other persons com prising the crew of the Washington, that there had been foul play, the Chapman being steered in such a manner as to keep tha lead, and prevent her opponent from passing, without a collision. Several witnesses were examined on this |>oint, asalao to shew that Roberts made the ll'-st assault, by seizing Bevins as he Btepped from the Washington into the Chapman , in the struggle which caused Bevins to fall in the water. The Jury will return a sealed verdict, on the assembl. ing ofthe court to morrow. For the plaintiff, A L. and H . P. Allen. For the de. fence, Mr. Assistant Alderman Dodge. Court Calender.
