We present the New York Hfrsi.d of this morning, in a new typographical costume which for elegance, clearness ami beauty, cannot he surpassed in this, or in uny other country. This suit of type was furnished lir Mr. .lames Conner, of this city, whose taste and mechanical skill, to say nothing ol his high character lor integrity and punctuality, are not to be surpassed in the land. With these and other improvements, me. chanical and intellectual, which wo have recently introduced into our establishment, we believe that we begin a new era in the progress of society in this very remarkable and exuberant country. It is now nearly ten years since we commenced the publication of this journal?and during all that period Ui lime l UHM juuuiuu iu iiumr 11 tuv ituimui ui^uu and representative, not of cliqvtt or factions, but of the very age itself?the faithful chronicler of the times in which we live, in every department of liuman life and real business. lly starting with this comprehensive view, and adhering to it, amidst all kind? of opjiosition, We have succeeded iu giving to this journal, the widest and most comprehensive circulation that any newspaper ever enjoyed. During the last ten exciting years, the world has passed through the experience of nearly a century. Society, trade, politics, commerce, morals, religion, manners?have idl l>een in a state of effervosencc. From this day hence, forward, we believe that a new era has dawned?new impulses have been caught?anew spirit has come down from toeaven. We are now prepared to enter into the field of newspaper enterprise, armed and equipped in every point, and better able to give a daily history of events than anyother paper in New Yorlc. Intra ie, currency and commerce, a new system, and a new race have risen up, which ri^uire* different views, and a distinct mode of treatment to any here tofore in existence. hi literature anil religion?in morals and philosophy, a conflict has begun between the spirit of light and the spirit of darkness.

In politic* and public affairs, a new and extraordinary movement has just begun in thi8 metropolis, called the " American Republican party," which bids fair certainly to produce an entire civil, political and moral revolution before next year is pust and gone. lu all those great movement* of the age, with all their auxiliaries, in Washington and elsewhere, we are prepar ed to give clearer and more graphic histories, reports and sketches, than any other paper in this country. Our newspaper establishment, with the changes and improvement* we have recently made, and the impulses we have given, is now the best arranged, the most complete, and the most energetic one, in the United States. Our circn tuti'sn ! nuw luiiitcaat, atij Oi ury day and every week. During the last month this circulation has increased nearly two thousand. Our advertising business hi? also accumulated till it cannot be further increased without additional dimensions, either by the issue of a supplement, or a double sheet. With these few remarks, we thank our patrons for their past favors, and shall take care to merit a continuance and increase of the like kindness to onr dying day. JAMES O. BENNETT. N. B.?From ten to twenty thousand additional copies of the llcrald will be published to-morrow morning, and circulated throughout the country, containing the report of the first MONSTER MEETING of the new "REPTBLH'ANS." Advertisers should think of this fact. First Monster Meeting of the American Republican Party. The first great monster popular demonstration in favor of the new party takes place this evening at 7 o'clock, at the corner of Hudson and Christophei ftreets. Thousands from all the wards will In there, and the occasion will be one of the greates' possible interest. The ninth ward was the birtl place of this grand development, and the hall n which the meeting of to-night takes place will Ik henceforth known in American history as the era aie 01 uneriy m in?* wconci revolution. i weniy thousand persons will probably l?e on the ground. Manners, torch lights, the Ions procession, the loud hurrah, will usher in the advent of that spirit which will spread from one end of the Union to another, jind light up the whole horizon with a glory us ol old. The most popular speakers and orators! of thf party will he present; and several of the poets who have become inspired hv the new movement will be also there, and give utterance in patriotic strain; to the feelings of the multitud . Not the least relnarkahle feature of this mo c cut is the fuel thai it has ulready called into e xistence several excellent popular |>oets. We have no doubt that Horace (ireeley will soon be furnished with a satisfactory reply to thf* <juery, " Have we no Atnericai jMrt-tV' iu the development of some Burns or lie ranger, who will wed to immortal verse the lolt; pent inicnts and principles of the new movement, an< earn for himself an im(?*rishable name. This is i literary, a philosophical, as well as a politics movement. Jt rises far above the troubled arena of party |K>litic.?, and has its way in the pure and elevated regions of genuine patriotism, and true devotion to the sacred cause of universal freedom. All the original talent of the country will soon be en'i?ted in the cause And before the combined foreej of moral pintty and intellectual power, thf hosts of faction, corruption, and intrigue, will soor be scattered like chafl before the wind.

Imimktavi .Secret Political Movement in the State or New Yoke.?It has been well known to oven* person w lio takes interest in the movements of politicians, that during the last few months a diqxu of small brokers, partly bulls and partly bears, with a sprinkling of law, philosophy, roguery, and i other nineteenth century accomplishments?have been organizing in Wall street lor the purpose of making a prodigious demonstration of some kind or other in relation to the next Presidential election. ; Alter a world of cogitation, deliberation, cornering of bears, and payment of differences, this important knot ol political philosophers have at last decided : 011 a very amusing and somewhat curious plan of i o|>eration, to i\pset the Locofoco National Conven, tion, which is to meet in Baltimore next May. As is sufficiently known, the democrats or Van liuren | party in this State, took |>eculiar ground at the Syracuse Convention in relation to the selection of delegates. In order to counteract this movement, the Wall street cli</uc of small brokers have issued ten thousand copies ol a "confidential circular," addressed to electors in every city, town, and hamlet i in this State, of which the following is an authenticated copy, procured for us through the very respectable medium of Beelzebub?so far as we are able to judge, from a cursory'glance at his feet as he j hurriedly left the office:? Nrw York, Nov. 17, 1W3. Mr. Jorsox Smith, Lockport, Niagara Co. Sir?The undersigned Democratic Republican Central Committee of Correspondence of New \ork, in favor of the District System, respectfully request* your co-operation in the great political movement now in progress, of each congressional district in the State electing its own delegate to the National Convention for nominating can didates for the Presidency and Vice Presidency of the : United States?a movement so evidently democratic in principle, and so obviously necessary to "the future harmony and united action of the Democratic Republican party in the contest of 1?44, as to require no argument to j show its "equal and exact justice"?no special pleading to evince its propriety and expediency. Precluded by the approaching winter season, from holdidg a State Convention to consult with our democratic brethren from the State at largo, we are authorized by the Park Meeting in favor of the district system, in September last, and subsequently by the Central Committee, to present the following plan, as the one most advisable under present circumstances : 1. That cach Congressional District of the Staters ha 11 hold a convention of delegates from the several towns in the district in April next, whose duty shall be to elect, or cause to be elected, a delegate to the National Convention ' at Baltimore in May next. 2. The delegates so chosen from the several Congres- ; sional Districts, shall meet in Tammany Hall, in the city of New York, on Thursday, the 23d day of May next, and 1 elect two delegates for the State at large. I'pon the foregoing simple and democratic plan of pro- ! owding?simple because of it* requiring not the usual po litical machinery, and democratic because of its affording | a true means of giving effect to the popular will?we pre sume 11 is unnecessary iu um*r any cunimini, we nave therefore only to request from you an answer on the foli lowing points :? I 1. What prominent or active men do you know of, in i vnur couu'v, or iu iny other countv of the State, who are I favorable, (o the election of delegates by CougresI sional Districts I I'leasc give us their uames and nearest Port Offices. J. What is the general sentiment of the Democracy of your section of the State, in relation to the premeditated exueussed usurpation of the Syracuse Convention, in choosing thiity-lix delegates, no less than nine months hefore the meeting of the National Convention, in total disregard and open violation of the rights of the people ! 3. What are the probabilities and pros]M-cts of your district being inducefl to co-operate with the other districts, ; in choosing its own delegate to the National Convention t We cannot believe that a Democratic Republican Nuj tional Convention, constituted by direct representation, ' will countenauce delegates appointed by a State Conven; tion, and no less than three removes 'from the people ; and we are well assured that a decided preference w ill be given to delegates from the Congressional Districts, because this is perfectly consistent with the great vital principle, upon which our Governments, both State and National, are founded. We request replies at your earliest convenience. Mease address, frnnked or post paid, to S. A. Lawrence, corner of | Wall and New streets. Yours respectfully, S. A. LAWRENCE, F. T. FERRIS, F. BYRDSALL, H. 1\ BARBER, WM. FRANCIS. It will hp seen from this elaborate, circular, what I I a vast field of operation this little clique have chalkout for themselves.

This circular, however, is exceedingly interesting and j valuable in one point of view. It exhibits in the I most intelligible manner to the great masses throughI out the country, the truth which we have sore|>eatedly endeavored to enforce, that mere scheming po; liticians of all parties never can, by any i*>ss?bility, | have a thought for the renl welfare of the nation. They plot, and scheme, and lay their heads together, and.expend time and money, and agitate, and employ all their energies?for what 1 For the attainment of any national object whatever1! No, not at all. They never yet had an idea beyond the achievement of some selfish petty object, by which they hoped to gain a share of the spoils. To what does all this project of Lawrence <k Co. amount 1? Why, to an attempt to cheat the people into a paltry quarrel about the district system. Rut what do the gn at mass of the people care about this? What 1 great principle?what moral sentiment?what na1 tional or even sectional interest is involved in this 1 1 | It is it mere party trick?a paltry scheme of a little* diquc of political traders, who have determined to try their luck in the grand business of plunder and corruption. The project of Lawrence ?fc Co. will end in ' smoke. The day has gone hy when the people are to he gulled and cheated, and set together hy the ears. We call on the people of theState?on all the friends of liherly and patriotism to organise themselves in every city, town and hamlet, on | the broad principles of American Re1 publican ism. Instead of allowing interested and 1 scheming partisans to lead them into quarrels about ' the district system, and this and that humbug, let them arise as one man?as brethren?heirs of the ' same great inheritance of independence?and strike boldly against the corruptions and rascalities of the heretofore dominant factions. And we are firmly persuaded that before next May we shall see a coni1 plete organization of the new party, not only in this " State, but over a vast portion of the Union. Great V is the truth and it must prevail. J We request that in every town where movements 1 take place, some correspondent w ho takes an inter' est in the matter, will send us the earliest intelli1 gencc for publication in the columns of the Herald.

Suppusku Dissknsions in thkCabinet.?The sui>l>osed dissension* or rather differences of opinion in tlie c abinet, are very generally believed, notwithstanding the denial of the "Madisonian." On this subject we lind the following passage in a letter from Washington, published in the "BostonMail." wllhikatok, Nov. ?, Vou will in that my account of u rupture in the cabinet is stouth denied l>> the Tj ler papers. And ) et I still utlirm that it ii substantially true. A great deul of pains is taken to conceal these dissensions; but the truth is. the John Jones's and the Bobby Tyler's who are fluttering about the footstool of power, are too excessively vain ol the coutidence occasionally bestowed ujion them, to keep their mouths shut. They are very leaky vessels indeed; and you might as well carry water in a wire seivc as entrust them with a secret in the hope of having it kept as such. 1 re|>eat, that the President's darling feature for his next Message is the annexation of Texas, and that hard words have passed between him and certain members of his cabinet on the subject. Nay more; I attirm that the breach is no"yet healed, and that it will not lie healed. The President has got the kink in his head that this will lie a vastly Iiopular measure, and that it will build him up a party?a thing which he has felt the need of very much. Spencer is too jealous of the influence of other memlier* of the cabinet with the President, to lietray the consciousness of his waning star by surrendering an opinion alter he has once advanced it. He knows John Tyler too well not to |>erceive that such a course, instead of healing the breach between them, would only expose him to the contempt of the President; and so Spencer will stand out against the measure to the last, although, as u matter ol principle, he cares no more about the annexation than does the man in the moon. He has given his opinion, and " never say tlie" is his motto. But his influence, at one time all-powerful in the cabinet, has ln-come undermined; and were it not that the country has already become disgusted with ministerial changes from bad to worse, the l aptain would give him his w alking ticket directly. The irum is, spencer na<i no personal popularity irom inenrsi, anil the President knew it. He htnl, however, the reputation of being an artful manager, and totally unscrupulous as to hi* means of success; and for this reason his services were sought, but the Captain has found out that, by some fatality or other, all of Spencer's schemes, however cunningly devised, fall far short of success; and with him, success is every thing. If, after the Senate comes together, the President linds he cun mukc use 11 the hatred of the Clay members towards Spenccr.i o l.ir as to induce them to confirm a new nomination, lie will dispense with his services at once. I have it from no doubtful authority that Messrs. Spencer and Upshur have had some hard words between them- I selves, since the llrst blow-up on the subject of annexation. They met casually in one of the departments; and the subject of the Message coming up, the question of annexing Texas was warmly discussed. I pshur called Spencer an " aliolitiouist," to which the latter retorted that Upshur was a "cringing sycophant." This raised , the southern blood, and I know not what Mould have been the conseimence if the meeting had not at this crisis been accidentally broken up. They parted, looking daggers at each other, but " using none." There will be some rich scenes growing out of this quarrel before it is done with, which, if they come to my knowledge (as almost every thing in " the government" does) 1 will transcribe for your paper. Meantime, keep dark.? " Mum," you know. We disagree entirely with several opinions in this extract?but we give it, as we do shinplaster money, for what it is worth. A dollar and a fact always carry their value on their face. There is strong reason to believe, however, that some differences of opinion, to speak in the mildest terms, have existed in the cabinet?certainly not as yet amounting to a breach?but a little coolness, to meet the contingencies of the seasons?just such differences as sometimes happen between that crony couple, "Punch and Judy." At all events, the annexation of Texas, and the taking possession of Oregon, will be the leading topics of discussion in the next Congress. President Tyler will introduce the question of Texas, and Mr. Benton, to countercheck him, will bring forward that of Oregon.? These questions may agitate and excite?but we doubt whether they will form parties, or divide the Union, or frighten the devil. The only popular movement that looks like a party, is that of the American Republicans in this city. This is a moral and political revolution that has been ripening for twenty years, and has at last burst forth like a volcano in this city. All other movements are " Trifles, light as air." New and Extraordinary Movement in Irish Repeal.?The recent extraordinary letter on American institutions which was issued by Daniel O'Connell, and published all over this country, begins to produce some singular effects. We perceivc by the Boston papers that the Abolitionists of that city, issued the following remarkable and instructive notice lor a Repeal Meeting in Faneuil Ilall, on Saturday last:? IRISH REPEAL AND AMERICAN SLAVERY! mnmin'i at hannviii 1um? m .-xi i ii in ay r.rrmng, jMorrmnir is, ims.

Irishmen! if you revere the name of vour great leader and champion,come to the Old Cradle of Liberty and listen to what he has so recently said of American Slavery, and of those, who, under theguiae of a pretended /eal for the welfare of your native country, are endeavoring to blind your eyes to the enormities oft hat diabolicul system, anil keep you from espousing the cause of mercy and justice in the land of your adopt ion. Several distinguished friends of Human Rights will address the meeting. KRANCI8 JACKSON, ) WM. LLOYD OA RKI SON, > Committee. OLIVER JOHNSON, > Boston, Nov. 1ft, 1843. This is a most remarkable movement. As we have reputedly said, we entertain for the oppressed people of Ireland the most profound sympathy. And the same feelings we entertain for the suffering people of England, France, and down-trodden humanity everywhere. The sufferings of the Irish people have been brought out in bolder relief, inconsequence of the mode of agitation adopted; and thus, perhaps, we have been prevented from seeing so clearly the various evils which alflict the lower classes in various other portions of Europe. In l.\,ika *--* ** ? - -* ?- 1_. stood; hut here it has hern mixed up and interwoven with other matters, that the greatest blunders and errors have been committed with regard to it by those who ought to know better. Of all the errors commit ted on the subject, none has been so gross as that of which O'Connell was guilty.? i Into it he was led in his violent denunciations of the institutions of this country. The effects of this now begin to be apparent. William Lloyd Oarrison, and his resectable confretrt, have taken the business in hand, fully determined Jo carry out Mr. O'Connell's views. And what are these views? Can it be possible that the gallant Irish nation are prepared to sanction the disgusting amalgamation proposed by O'Connell"! Is it possible that the nobly-proportioned Irish race?one of the finest, i! not the finest in Kutope?is to be united to the dusky tiibcs of Africa?

Imfortatt from Brrxo* Avbk*.?We have received news front Buenos Ayres to the 15th of .September. It is of an important character. Orders have been received by Commodore Purvis of the English ?|tiadron, for his government not to interfere with the operations of the Huenos Ayr<*an squadron. In consequence of this Admiral Brown, ol the latter Heet, hud given notice to the loreign authorities, of his intention to blockade the l>ort of Montevideo immediately. It was reported on the 15th that the blockade was iii force, excluding nr<ivikkiim of >11 kinds The ship Herald, sailing nnder theJAmorican Hug, and belonging to S. K.

All the Indians lemauiing in this territory keep tlic?iNelv<** j vary quiet. 1'roukks* of litkntiors Literattrnk.?We had thought that tin* publication of licentious literature had reached its culminating point. We had thought that the recent republication of certain English work*, und especially the late translation of Paul de Kock and other French novelists, were the last ste|?s in the publication of licentious books, which authors and publishers would venture to take. The llarj>ers have made a great stretch in the publication of works, at the best equivocal in )>oint of good taste and public morals. We had thought that Paul de Kock, Ninon de L'Enclos, the Mysteries of Paris, and other works of that class were of a character quite as licentious as public sensitiveness, and especially the nice and delicate sense of the moral and religious community, would bear. Hut we have been mistaken?deeply egregiously mistaken. The "world" huve elevated these licentious works to the highest |h>int to which they dared to go, and now the " church" have taken hold of the subject and thrown the " world " and its works totally into the shade. Within a few days past a book has been publish' ed by the Kev. C. Sparry, of New York, who announces himself, with rx iiithcdra authority, as having been for "seven years the agent for the New York 1*. It. S.," [New York Protestant Reformation Society,] which entirely eclipses in beastly?no, not beastly, but filthy?licentiousness, any tiling we have ever seen or heard of. It is so grossly and abominably obscene as to call for the interposition of the strong arm of the law for its immediate suppression. And we shall watch and mark the event with deep solicitude, whether eur courts of justice,1Ithe Recorder, the District Attorney, the tirand Jury, or any persons to whom the safe keeping of the public morals are entrusted, take any step towards the suppression of such vile

obscenity and such gross libels upon a large and respectable class of our fellow citizens. If we have any sound government, or if we have any efficient l>olice, or if there is any modesty or virtue left among us, we shall expect to see the administration of justice act in this matter. Yet this vile emission in edited?yea, and a copyright secured, by the Reverend Charles Sparry, for seven years an agent of the New York Protestant Reformation Society (if we are right in the interpretation of the initials "N. Y. P. R. S."), and of course a minister in good standing in the Protestant church. But does the Protestant church disown the man and repudiate the book ! No such thing ; she embraces them both?takes them to her bosom?recommends them to the people?advises all classes, young and old, male and female, wives and daughters, to read and meditate over the contents of this damnable cauldron. And under the auspices of the religious papers, the Reverend Mr. Sparry is not only now lecturing in this city on the subjects discussed in the book, but he is making his lectures the means of selling a thing of which he alone has the exclusive copy right. We understand that he lectured yesterday somewhere in the Bowery, and weknow that his lectures are dvertised in the daily papers. But lest it should be doubted that both book and priest are endorsed and recommended by the Protestant church, we will give two or three proofs from known aud established organs of that church. The first is from the New York Evangelist, which has been the leading organ of the Presbyterian church, new school, for fourteen vears. Last Thursday's pai>er, 16th inst., contains the following notice of the Rev. C. Sparry's book. Peter Dens was an eminent ami authentic Catholic writer on Theology, and his works have been recently published with the express sanction of the Pope. Whatever he states to be the doctrine of that church may therefore be relied on as correct. This little volume presents a translation of so much of his work as treats 011 Confession; and a striking specimen it is of horrible perversions and abominations, if anything were needed to coufirin the identity of Home with the accursed Antichrist of scripture, this would be sufficient to do it. The next if front the Baptist Advocate, a leading organ of the Baptist ehttrch, of five years standing, published both in New York and Philadelphia. Last Thursday's paper says of the same book:? We advise those w ho are ignorant of the devices and >h. Moil.. 1 of Harlots, to ii-iut tlila ivuk and if they are not sntislied that she sustains the character given her in lleveUtion. we know not what kind of evidence would convince them. The following is front the Christian Intelligencer of .Saturday, Nov. 11. This paper is of fourteen year? standing, and is, we believe, the leading organ of the Dutch Reformed church. It thus leads off its "Literary Notices:" [Giving the title page of the Book.] This little volume furnishes from the writings of Dens. accredited as standard authority by the Romanists, and used in their Theological Seminaries, a delineation of the true character of the confessional. The extracts are given in double columns, one containing the original Latin. MM) the other the translation. It contains a sad and humiliating exhibition of the Al>ominations of the confessional. We can scarcely believe our own eyes, that these prominent organs of the Protestant church should recommend to men, women, wives, daughters, children, all?all?and knowingly, too, ns their notices prove?a text book upon licentiousness. The truth or falsehood of the book is a matter with which we at this time have nothing to do. Houses of prostitution cotdd furnish an abundance of truths, hut their publication would be not the more justifiable either in the eye of law or of public morals. Hut we deny the truth of the book. It purports to be upon the " Nature of Confession," A'c. in the Catholic church. And we are not disposed to deny that there may be found bad priests in the Catholic church, as well as in other churches, and bad men everywhere. But to utter such a broad and disgraceful slander as this against a whole church, is an offence worthy of condign punishment. We have known the Catholic Church front our infancy, and have been initiated into its mysteries, but we pronounce these statements to he libels beyond any tliinnr we have ever seen or heart) of. However wicked the church may have been, in ambition and spiritual tyranny, it is within our own knowledgefto declare that thin hook is a foul and abominable libel. To show that we are not alone in our judgment of this mass of moral pestilence, whose author has the audacity, the unparalleled effrontery to come into our midst and advertise for polite audiences, before whose male members he can scatter his gross obscenity, his filthy licentiousness, and this identical book, we cut out the following article from last Saturday's (18th inst.) I'ottsville (I'a.) Liiiporium:? Rk?. Charlm Sr*Rnv?Om< ?.*>: Boom?Wc feci it a solemn duty to call upon every good citi7.cn in thin community. to aid in NUiiprvfiing u foul, diiguiting and <>t? cene liook, which has tnwu widely circulated in thiit place during the pa*t week by the K?v. I'harlei Sparry, of New York, put in circulation, too, under the garti of 11 reliiriou* teacher, and from the very pulpit of one of our moat reipectable churchea. The fact? are briefly theie:? Mr. Ppar.y made hL appearance here on Sunday morning loat. and i-xpreiuiod a dcNire to lecture in Nome one of our churchei ogaiuit the evila uf Popery. Thi? being a subject on which considerable feeling exist*, without much reflection he wu permitted to occupy the Methodist Church on Hunday evening; and although there wan a vein of coarseness in hi? language which disgusted Nome, he succeeded ill obtaining the use of the church for another lecture on Monday afternoon. This aecond leclure passed off w ithout giving any very serious offence lo the auditory?but at It* clone, the speaker announced that he " intended to set the town on fire -not by an) lecture," he added. " but I have ammunition under the l>ulpi( that will do it." Thin "ammunition," he said, was ;i small tiook maile up of extract* from the Theology of ll.,. II.... n..i.a n llnw.Uk ?!..?* it n?. venc lii )? placed iii the hand* of females or young lad*, and lir would therefore si ll il only to men, who must In no mean* sutler it to be read by either ?<11 In or Imys. This of course excited the curiosity of all, and a rush wax made to obtain the Hook. In the course of a vrrj few tninute* 11m1111 a 100 copies, w hirli nrohably rout the retailer about live rent* each, wan sold at twenty-five cents each, thus making a very handsome speculation. Although a inimlM r of gentlemen who were present, f?-ll that it was h i(mM insult to all, particularly the ladies, and an outrage ii|>oii ever* thing lik*' decency, yet tin cool hiiiI confident tone of tlie speaker wan such (added lo the fact that this real character of the work was not known) ns to deter all from stepping forth and forbidding the disgraceful trattic. On Tuesday morning, it having licin ascertained that the hook, which abounds with notes and explanations, written in the most disgustingly obscene nnd fillliy Inngunge, was even worse in its character than the tender hail represented it to he, a warrant wan obtained, and Mi. Soarry was arrested just as he was stepping Into the Muitch < hunk stage, Iiurlng heard that proceedings had In-I ll instituted (gainst him. lie ?M? taken before JustinHeisler, where (the desire ol the prosecutor lieing only to suppress the vile and flntthsome hook) after giving a so limn promise that he would never dispose of another copy lo man, woman, or child, and farther that he would do all in his |Kjwpr to simpiess the work entirely, he ?uy discharged, '"8 "rtici- antl thin rommunit), which he hu* so much injured, with a Arm determination, it in hoped, never to suffer either hii zeal in whut he muy deem a good cause, or hib lore of lucre, to lead him into a similar error. In conclusion we would again call ui>on every individual having the leaat repaid lor moralit) , w ho muy have n copy of the book, to commit it forthwith to the Humes, and thereby aid in staying its pestilential effect. We have only to add, that we shall this morning send a eopy of this book to the District Attorney, and ask linn to bring the subject immediately before the grand jury. And if there is not moral power enough in the community tonuppresH it, then we shall from this time take it for granted that the public no longer look upon licentiousness as a vice.

DEAU SIK:? 1 am enabled to furnish you with Additional and Cull particular# of the confession of Augustus Mill?'r(wliose real name I now learn is Auguste Jacobi), I the supposed murderer of the Castner family, thai I look place in Warren County, New Jersey, on the night ofthe lirst of May, last spring. It will he seen that he now entirely denies the commission <>i the crime or anv knowledge of it, and if the statement below is to fie believed, the man is subject to weeasional attacks of mental alienation, ami that during the paroxysms of such an attackhe made the statement which induced hid arrest, and the implication ofthe man named Meyer,who it will be seen has boon discharged trom custody, i am indebted for the following to a Herman friend of mine, who obtained it from Mr. Wollrnweber, the editor of the paper eai>er culled "Iii-r Ljeiuokrat," and to whom Jncohi made thin confession now given. 1 give it to you literally as translated, and it is all that has transpired in reference to this singular and mysuri ous matter. Auguste Jacobi maintained on Saturday morning that he was entirely innocent of the murder ol the Castner family, and had no participation in it whatever. He declared that his first assertion or confession, was the consequence of a temporary or momentary insanity, with which lie had already been attacked twice this year. In this condition, being tired of life, and with a view to die he had concocted the tale, thinking thereby to throw the sum of one thousand dollars (the reward ollered or the detection of the murderers of the Castner lamily,) into the hands of a poor and needy man. As a proof that he never resided in New Jersey, with the exception of travelling through it once, he gave the following statement relative to his residence, so long as he has been in the United States. " My name is Auguste Jacobi; I was born in Oantzic, Kingdom of Prussia, and arrived in this country a'xmt two years ago, in the British ship Corregio, bound from Belfast, Ireland, to New York. I remained in New York J tortile space of two days, and then went to Philadelphia, and this is the only time that I ever passed through the State of New Jersey. At Philadelphia 1 remained two weeks in the tavern of Mr. Keinf, in Walnut street, between Serond aud Krvmt streets. From there 1 went to Montgomery County, and remained about three months with Messrs. Schuler & Moser, who keep a store, and live near the Hover Bridge. From here f travelled to Berks County with a letter of recommendation from Pastor Miller, of Long Swamp, to Martin Lands, a farmer. There 1 kept a school from about September of last year, until March of this year; then I was obliged to discontinue my school in consequence of illness. My illness consist...I ,.i.?r nf lif... nn,l n .l.niro ?o <ti.. I then proceeded to Dr. Herbert's, in Pike county, who took ine to Heading, where I was Heated medically by Dr. Jaeger, and with such success that 1 recovered about the end of April. During this illness I was frequently so violent that a guard was engaged to watch me. After my recovery, 1 returned to Martin Landis, in order to bring about a settlement. On the first of May I was in Lehigh county, in the Ixjardiug house of Stephen Bailey, aliout twelve miles from Allentowu, where 1 remained eight days, as I found a number of Germans there. 1 then went to a man named Leech Owen, in Lehigh county, where I boarded for a period of aliout two weeks, and then (still in the month of May) proceeded to West Penn Township, Schuylkill county, where I remained until July, in the house of the Rev. Mr. George. From there I proceeded on my way to the Water (Jap, about twenty miles from Kaston, and there remained with Dr. tiasz, from which place 1 went direct to Kaston, where I stayed till the 11th of this month, (November.) About three weeks ago, while yet in Kaston, 1 had a relapse of my former illness, accompanied with the same symptom;?being tired of life and wishing for death; and it was also in this condition that I made the confession of having murdered the Castner family." Heyer, who lie first implicated, linn !>een discharged from custody. Jacobi felt sft ng enough on Saturday to make the above explan on, but yet he complained and said that he felt no t esire to live any longer. The letters found in his | <..-session, go to show that he is of a highly Napectdble family, and Mr. Woljenweber assures us that nis father is a kind of Provincial Governor in Prussia. He declined, however, to give any direct information as to his parentage or family connexions. He is also tn possesion of a testimonial from the Prussian Consul in England, in which he is very honorably referred to and highly spoken of. He stated that he J t-i: i i ii was lniroouct-u IIUU ftllUSUL-u lus iwujr i,y a V .11niHii with whom he had become acquainted accidentally, and that on the evening when he nindn the confession of i>articipution in the murder of the Castner family, lie had drank nothing hut one or two glasses of beer. Since the above has been written, Jacohi haw given a very detailed account of the t ime and place >f his r.-sidenoe from September of l?*t year until , the day of his arrest. \\ e publish that nortion ot the written document, whicn refers t<> the i>eriod about which the murder of the Castner family was lierpetrated. lie says;? " From the 19th to the 20th April, T was at the house o' Simon Voigt, in Berk Comity, from the 30th to the 24th April 1 was at Dr. Herbert's tavern in Heading, from the -25th to the 30th of A tail. 1 collected school money, and was with 1'astn llellfrich, preacher ot the Heidelberg church. On the first of May, I was with schoolmaster BerKmeir, of the lleiiiellierg church, and on the second of May, with the Rev. Mr. Uulw, in Lehigh county, aliout l'i mile* from Allentown." Jacohi was sent to Moymensmg l'rison thisniotning, where he will remain until the account rendered of himself shall have been coorrohorated. John McFall, a grocer, charged with committing a rape upon a young girl, sixteen years of ape. named iNancy Met auley, had a liruring-on rrmay afternoon hefofe Mayor Scott. After u prolonged examination, eliciting nothing of interest, the case was continued for a further hearing on Tuesday afternoon. The case of Charles W. Hepburn, the 3d street broker, m?\v charged with violating the person of Mary Ann Kcnsinger, was heard before Recorder Vaux on Friday evening, and as the worthy magistrate decided upon a private investigation, the result has not yet transpired. As I before intimated, there are circumstances connected with this caso that have induced strong sympathy in favor of Mr. Hepburn, and it is said sucn evidence will be adduced as will entirely cxculputc lum from the commission of the alleged crime. Patrick Looney, the keeper of a book stand at the north easl corner of (ith and Market streets, was brought before Mayor Scott yesterday, to answer the charge of having received valuable books from the young scatm* arrested during the week, know :i i i ?ri... i i. .

After a hearing he was bound over to ap|>ear again on Wednesday next. There arc yet at the I'olicc office a large number of annuals, bibles and other valuable and splendid works that have not yet been identilicd; tne owners may by calling recognize their property by the private marks. Messrs. I)esilvcr kV Muir, John W. Moore, McCnrty & Ihivis, Edward C. lUddle and other gentlemen in the book selling business, have already proved that a number of the books were stolen from their respective stores. The graceless you niters who perpetrated the robbery had also a hearing before the Mayor, and were remanded for a further hearing next week. An unsuccessful attempt was made on Friday ! night to enter the house of Dethencl A. Moore, 180 North Eleventh street, by boring through a window ' shutter in the basement story, jt is supposed the burglars were frightened by noise marie in the house, and decamped without effecting their purpose.
