NEW YORK HERALD. New Ttrfc, ?und?y, Drrmlxr a, 18U. yr?. tTr shall receive by the Acadia, and have for aale ii An office, all the loitirn papers together with the London illustrated pa[*r> all of yic latest data*. DefaixatIujis?in Wall street.?The recent defalcation in the .EuuL-lu?urauce Company, to the tune of 940.0U), has very naturally awakened a good deal >iMdFvrehen*um tbout the situation of pther insurance and banking companies. And wlio can jHiint l? nth* *me .?|'these i iu-i i t ?*Ti on57 mwTsTiV is safe?theje is no danger of defalcation thfre !" Every bauk and insurance company in. the city mayret'this moment be the subject of phinder. Nobody can tell how their Hfl'mrs are, with such culpable and shameless negligence have their very responsible duties been discharged by the men uplMimt?%l t*? look after the interests of the stockholders. We have not the shadow of a doubt, that if the hooks of some of these institutions were carefully examined, evidences of corruption and robbery would be presented on all sides, of the most astounding character. Nobody would have a right to be surprised if it were discovered that one-third of the property oi the banks, and other monied incorporations, had been eaten up and destroyed by their officers. And whyl The reason is very j.lain. livery body who has had the use of their eyes have seen how bank officers have been'living. In the absence of all profitable business, by the banks, we have seen, during the last few years, their officers living in a style of most unbounded extravagance? giving parties at five hundred or a thousand dollars a night?spending the season at th? fashionable watering-places?and indulging in all sorts of "riotous living." And all this 011 salaries of #lftt)0, or $1,500, or $2000 a year?sums about sufficient to pay the rent of their princely mansions 111 Wavcrley Place or Eighth street. It is not an exaggerated calculation to set down J the amount of bank plunder, during the last ten years, at five or six millions of dollars. There is no confidence whatever in the system. It is fraught with corruption* from beginning to end. And the robbery of the stockholders of these victimized institutions is not the only evil. The culprits, from their wealth and connexions, are enabled to defeat the courts of justice, and escape the punishment of their crimes. Let a poor starving devil steal a loaf of bread or n pair of breeches, and he is sent to the Penitentiury immediately. "But a man like Wyman, when he plunders a bank, can secure the services of Mr. Webster, and the first counsel in the land, take exceptions to the decision of the court, insult the judg?, set aside the verdict of the jury, and effectually elude the grasp of the law. It has been this state of tKinfffi 'jmnntTat r?alicoo u-Ktr<h Kae nr 1 a 1 nnt?>rl the new reform movement, and which, if properly carried out, will bring back the virtue and integrity of former days. The Musical Mama.?During the last week the musical mania has culminated to its highest point. On the arrival of Cinti Damoreau and Artot, there was a pood deal of excitement, amongst the French circles particularly, who endeavored with great zeal to make out Artot to be a very great artist, which indeed he unquestionably is. But then came Ole Bull, who cast Artot7altogether in the shade in point of genius and originality; the consequence has been that the French rtiqw have very foolishly sought to decry the merits of the former in order to elevate the latter. The French paper here has made itself most conspicuously ridiculous in this movement, setting itself up to be the sole musical censor of the age, as if no one knew any thing about music but the little set of which it is the organ. The enthusiasm, however, created by the only successor o4 Paganini, has been altogether unprecedented. His simplicity of manner and entire absence of all pretension and affectation, have gained for him the most flattering degree of public esteem and regard. The Park has been crowded to suffocation each night of his performance. On Friday night he api?eared for the last time, lie played with all his skill and enthusiasm, and excited a storm oi applause sucn as has indeed rarely been witnessed in any theatre. At the close of the performance, he made his acknowledgments to the house, in his own quiet, unaffected, impassioned way; and having with vetv great feeling handed to the leader of the orchestra, a wreath of flowers wnich had been cast on the stage, he retired amid loud and enthusiastic plaudits from all parts of the house. What is to be the effect of all this enthusiasm 1 It will certainly give an impulse to musical science in this country, which will give it un elevation and popularity, to which it has never hitherto approached. The public are heartily tired?as well they may?of the legitimate drama. They *"are wck of seeing .Shakspeare murdered and mangled, and even the best actors must soon exclaim with the Moor, "Othello's occupation is gone." And this change in the public taste is most gratilying. It is not easy te exaggerate the refining and.elevating influence of a love of music .amongst any ]>eople. _________ Political Movements of the Week.?These movements are becomme verv interesting, and ^uite amusing to a philosopher who likes to study the shifting scenes of the political world. The American Republicans are increasing rapidly, and arc daily adding to their numbers some of the most influential men of the day. The Hon. Moses H. Grinnell?one ?f the most distinguished members of Congress we ever had, and a man of acknowledged purity and great moral influence in the community, has joined this party. In fact, the new movement is triumphing every where, in spite of all opposition, and has produced very considerable consternation amongst the other parties. Already the locafocos, sensible ol impending danger, are waking up. and endeavor to arrest tW* 'Viae.r. torrent, which is to overwhelm them next spring. Thus has a most novel and interesting state of things been produced by the defalcations^ corruption, and rascalities of the political factions, from whom we now begin to see the brightest hopes of deliverance. Musical a*t> Theatrical Intelligence?Ry the arrival of the beautiful Signora Eufrosia Borghese, in the bark Rapid, from Havana, another star has been added to the brilliant galaxy which has dazzled our musical world for the Jasf few months. Madame Cinti Damoreau, with Mons. Artot, gave a Coneeri in Philadelphia, on Friday night, at the Musical Fund Hall. The Musical furor is evidently as strong in the Quaker city as with us. Mucready api>ears to-morrow night at the Park. He took his benefit at Boston on Wednesday night, in the character of Richelieu. Among the audience were the Hon. Daniel Webster, young Bertrand, and the Hon. Thomas H. Perkins. Henry Russell was at Charleston, S. C., by the last advices, drawin* full houw>H uaual Kv hi? original and eccentric style of song. burton wm filling hi* pockets with lard dollars at Cincinnati. Vieux Temps draws the magic bow at Washington Hall for the first time in the new world, on lo-morrow nmht week, with a grand orchestra under Mr U. C. Hill. Ole Hull will be tickling the hearts and souls of the Philadelphia^ at the Chesnut street Theatre to-morrow night. The Bostonians are in asomes wlule reading daily of the treat* we New Yorkers are nightly enloying. They api>ear to console themselves with the nope that tne sweet warbler and charming creature, Castellan, will pay them a visit and sing nm e or twice for tnem during the coining week. WalUck took his farewell benefit at Ihe Chesnut j x last night, prior to jtoing South. Dan Marble is tilling an engagement at the National in Cincinnati. Charlotte Cushman is announced at the Park to play with iMacready. What a welcome will not our Charlotte get! ^ Madume Lecourt and her husband, late of the French oi?era, at Niblo'a, were playing to crowdcd houses in New Orleans, at the French Theatre. Henry I'lacide arrived at Sew Orleans on the 22d, and was to appear at the St Charles Theatre i Hkmqioi s Movements in Xkw Yore.?We live ' in a glorious age?and are undoubtedly a great people. And while the devil is bui?y with one halt of J our tree and independent imputation, winning their sou la by Italian extra vsganias and enchanting | fiddlesticks ; the saints are busy with the other 1 half?and if there are but few stragglers along the 1 narrow path, it will not be for want of preacher*; ! all offering salvation, some free gratis for nothing, i sonic at six and a quarter cents a-head, some at a shilling, and some at whatever it may be considered worth, {iom a red cent to a Plaintield shinplarter; but atl inspired with the great and philauj thropic wish to save their fellow men, and to wear black coats, sleek chops, and all this with1 out dirting their hands,at an honest trade, or an honorable employment. To-dav a stron? effort wilt l?> nmrlo in uhnko <) > devil from his vantage-ground. First on the lift, the St. Jude's Episcopal Free Church offers to receive Episcopalians and others for anything or nothing, and the inducement offered is not from the Bible or from Den's Theology, but the word is Enterprise! Not the pure and orthodox religion of the protectant church, but the individual enterprise of a new school enthusiast, whose only aim is, pence and Dr. Pusey. The next invitation comes from a teacher of navigation and the sciences, connected with mathematics at Vocal Hall, whose price for a dose of natural science is six and a quarter cents, just seventy-five per cent less than a box of Brandreth'spills. Oh, Vale ! Vale! The next, inspired with a horror for babes and baby-linen, mounts the pulpit in Columbian Hall? a douce Scotch wench, fat, fair and forty, who preaches without breeches, and offers to show that the vile mass of lying, cheating, scheming corruption, in Wall street, will in time become as pure as Eden before Mother Eve bit that apple. The next is, a cry of Second Advent! Prepare or be d?d forever!?an opposition invitation?the one from an Elder, the other from a Brother?each,however, strenuous to prove by signs and wonders in heaven and earth, that the day of judgment is at or..I V?1, ...HI U... .. cinder in the heap of ashes and bone-dust to which this beautiful and bountiful earth, with its lovely women, its fruits, its flowers, its hills, its valleys, its streams and its steam engines, will be immediately, if not sooner, reduced to. Yet some entertain hopes, that our young men may see visions, and that our young women may dream dreams and become in time mammas of fair and hopeful little ones ; and that they may learn the wuy in which to train them up, so that when they are old, they won't do no otherwise, the Rev. Abel C. Thomas proposes to give a lecture at the Brooklyn Tabernacle, addressed to young gentlemen, and in the evening, another to young ladies; but whether it is on Love, Courtship or Marriage, we are in the dark?perhaps it will b# a little on each, and on the whole, tor the collection which follows. The Rev. G. H. Fisher holds out the same inducements in this city at Market street Church, where he will deliver his fifth lecture, on "Preparation for the duties of life." of COlirsp. mari-iffl anrl single. If the " 1 iberal, moral, benevolent and philanthropic minds of all parties, sects, trades and professions" are not able to collect wisdom from each and all of these, then let them go to National Hall, Canal street, where they will be enlightened on a subject of paramount interest to the welfare of mankind; but whether it is to whistle and chew meal at the same time, or to rattle beans in a night-cap, we cannot inform them; but if they will only buy three cents worth of bad brandy at the bur on entering, no doubt the bar-keeper will afford them, every information ; besides, the brandy will excite the spirit, and give a zest to the dribhlings of 'some modern Fourierite.? Oh, Age of bronze, brass, and shinplasters, give us some circulating medium which cannot be shaved at the counters of Brokers, Bishops, and Jacksonville Bankers; and when you shall have restored that precious jewel to all honest christians, ihen we may hope to get rid of this canting crew of hypocritical, blustering, blaspheming revilers, who make man their monkey, and show him up to his fellow-man for coppers. Late prom CmA.?The packet Rapid, Ward, arrived yesterday morning from Havana. .She sailed thence on the 16th ult. There was no news of con-1 sequence. Gov. O'Donnell was conducting the go- | vernment of Cuba with an iron hand. The U. S. j ship Vandalia and brig Boxer were in port when the R. sailed. Among the passengers in the Rapid, we see the name of Miss Euphrasia Borghese, the vocalist. Steam Shu* Caledonia, Captain Lott, sailed from Boston on Friday afternoon for Liverpool.'? She had thirty passengers, 2<MK(0 letters, and the usual number of newspapers. This is the largest semi-monthly mail ever despatched from the Boston Post Office, by this line of steamships. Change of British Ministers at Washington.? It is said that Mr. F?x, the British Minister, is about to retire from this Mission, to be succeeded by Mr Packenham, late British Minister to Mexico. Accident to the Princeton.?This new steamer met with a slight accident at Philadelphia last Friday, which compelled her to return. Naval.?The frigate Raritan left Philadelphia on Friday for New York. Steam on Canals.?A line of steam Canal Packets is contemplated on the Pennsylvania Canal. Stock Speculation*. . Sir,? I sincerely thank you for the stand you are taking against the cruel and reckless conduct of some of the banks in loaning so heavily on stocks; and I would ask vour advice, under the circumstances, how I should act as a stockholder in one of the Wall street banking associations, to endeavor to check this alarming propensity of the directors to risk mine and others property*! I am aware of the very great difficulty that exists at the present time in employing our bank capital, and willingly excite the desire to increase the demand for it; and, for that reason, do not object to temporary loans of unquestionably sound stocks, such as Government [ Loans, New York Citv, or State Stocks; but I do object, and loudly will 1 complain, if my hard earn ings are jeopardized by loans on such Irish as Lone Island Railroad, Harlem Railroad, &rc. Look at the fluctuation* in the last twenty days on Lon? Island, advancing from 50 to 75 percent, and I say if it is a safe stock to loan money on at any rate; nay, would the directors loan their own property on it1? No, sir; but being placed in power, and having the control of other people's money, they thus abuse the trust tenosed in them for the benefit (in some instance?) of themselves. I hold stocks in on** of those institutions that I am credibly informed has loaned money to a large amount on upwards of four thousand shares of Long Island Railroad stock; and in another, that has loaned on Harlem stock. I disapprove of both transactions; but have no power to prevent it, however mnch I wish it. I would rather have two and a half per cent without risk, than see an announcement in thejiublic papers of three and a half percent as my half yearly dividend, obtained bv such means. Now, sir, mark the result; it is well known which -.r? .U- . r.?., Ik.l U .U..-I I -1 .... ..v- iiwiituuviw ?iia? i.o?c iiiuoiwninu uii: muiiry of their stockholders; and it is but a few days since it was publicly Mated in Wall street, that the certified checks of one of these hanks would not be accepted in payment, as such certification only bound the bank for that day, and not till the next; the very credit of the institution is thus placed in danger. Though I do not always aiTee with your paiwr, I hope you will find a place for these few stray hints. 1?mc; Imland Raii.road.?Mr. Bennett Can vou infonn a subscriber what brokering house in Wall street, has furnished the means to aid in the cornering of the Long Island Railroad"?

ClTHEIIM. M AXWEU.,^0* Ahobtiom.?This woman, who resides at No. 34 LUpenanl j street, wan arretted on Saturday evening on a charge of cauaing an abortion. The circumstance*, at detailed in | the affidavit*, are a* follows The unfortunate girl, who 1 has been the victim in the case, is named ?ulma|Mara<-he, recently of No. 7 Thomas street, but who formerly resided with her mother at 90 Leonard street. Hhe states in her attidHvit, that on the 6th of November, 1942, she was se- : duced by a man named Napoleon Lareux, a fancy basket importer and, dealer, who then promised her marriage On the -iOth of the same month she says she discovered that she was pregnant, and she then communicated the fact to him. A few days after, he brought her some medicine to take, to procure aliortion,which she refused; and he threatened to poison her if she did not take it. He visited her at her mother's house at this time, and one evening, soon aAet. he brought a bottle of medicine for her to take, which he left in the yard until her mother had gone to , bed, when he got it, and |>ersuadud her to drink it. She again refused, when he put his arm round her neck, held heruosr with his fingers, and with the other hand forced liulf a tumbler of the medicine down her thnmt H? told her i that he had obtained the medicine from Dr. Abeille, ISA Heade street, and that it would kill the child and prevent exposure, lie then told her thut he would leave the medicine with Madame Catherine Ouetal, who occupied the second story of the house, and she would give her directions how to take it. Madame Ouetal called her to her room the next day and told her that she must take three wine glasses each dav. which she also refused, but upon threats that she woula inform Lareux, she consented, and continued taking the medicine until she had swallowed six wine l>ottlesol the nauseous, bitter stuff. This medicine of Dr. Abeille having no effect, except to make her partially sick, Lareux then urged her to take several warm w ater baths mixed with mustard, as he said that would do the business. This weakened her body to such an extent that she could scarcely walk ;but not producing the desired effect, he procured a vial of strong black liquid, which he said he obtained from Dr. Abeille. This she refused to take, and he then advised her to go to the abortionist, Madame Costello, 34 Lispenard street; and gave her $ 10 to pay for the operation. After much reluctance she consented?told her story, paid the $10, promised to pay more, and then allowed Madame Costello to operate upon her by puncturing her womb with a sharp instrument. This was on the 14th of February. Shu then went to her mother's house, No. 90 Leonard street, and the next evening was delivered of a still-born child, which she kept concealed in the rear part of her bed until the next day, when she rapped on the wall above for Madame Guetal, who came down and took the child away with the sheets, (ic. in a market basket. She got up the name day anil went into the roam above to see the child, and was afterwards told that Lareux had disposed of it. Her statement being confirmed in purl mv net wmowm sister, ACIIa rayier, 01 i i nuniHh street, with whom she lives, anil also by her brother, warrants were issued for the arrest of Madame ( ostello, Madame (iuetal, Dr. Abeille and Lareux. I ostello. Cuetal, and Larcux were arrested, but Abeille litis not yet been caught. Laruux, who ia well known as a fancy basket dealer, was locked up in default of bail in the sum of $1000. Justice Merritt took Thomas Maxwell and William Maxwell as bail in the sum of f 1000 for the appearance of Madame (.'ostello, to answer this offence. William Maxwell is the husband of thi* woman. Justice Stevens yesterday took George Ponsot as security in the sum of $1000 for the appearance of Madame Catherine (iuetal.and she was discharged from prison. Lareux was bailed last evening by Julien Droz in the sum of $1000. Thus stands this aflair at prevent. Arrest ok Park Bknjamin and Jonas Winchester kor Liiiel.?Mr. Lewis Fitzgerald Tasistro, with whom the above named editors of the New World have had a newspaper war for the past year, walked into the lower police otfice at a late hour on Friday evening, with a copy of " The New World" in his pocket of the 28th of October last, containing the following paragraph,which he alleged to Justice Stevens to be libellous :? ' 'Mr. L. F. Tasistro.?This notorious individual it, the papers snv, in Detroit, where he proposes to publish a paper called ' The Jeffersonian.' We warn otir western readers against any proposals of this sort. Tasistro is utterly irresponsible': nis character in this part of the country is as bad as it can be. Divorced from one wife on account of his open violation of the seventh commandment, he is said to be living with another, and thus subjecting himself to an action for bigamy. He began two or three papers in New York and Boston, which were utter failures, and existed a few montha only. " Tasistro is a gross slanderer, and unfit to tic trusted to write for a respectable newspaper." f On his entering an affidavit to the effect above stated, warrants were iMued for Mr. Wincheater and Park Benjamin. The former appeared yesterday morning, and ottered Mr. McElrath, or the New York Tribune, as security on his part, who was received by Justice Stevens, after some little difficulty between the bail and the magistrate, in which the former waa ordered out of the office for refuting to aniwer questions put to him by the magistrate, and a police officer itricken from the roll for refusing to turn him out when so ordered. The affair whs afterwards amicably settled. Shooti at a Cab Mai*.?A young man who gave the name of Robert Took, who has Men lodging at tne Howard House, engaged a cab driver on Saturday evening to take him to the house of Julia Brown, in Leonard street, and on arriving there refuted to get out of the cab, but requested to be taken back from whence he started. This was complied with, and on arriving at Howard's he again had altered hit mind, and desired to go back to "Julia's.'' This, the cab driver, whose name is Hugh O'Neil, refuted, unlms he was paid hit fare up to the end of the tecond trip, when Cook became a little boitterout, being excited from a little extra ntcam, but finally put hit hand in his pocket, and paid the cabman seventy-five cents. He thnn demanded to be taken back, whn ?h? cabman refuted. Cook threatened trouble, and said he would ttep into the houte to get a note changed; but on return inr, and the cabman ttill refuting to convey him to Leonard street, he drew a pistol and fired at O'Neil, who was more frightened than nurt, as the ball, if there was any in it, did him or his horses no harm. A watchman who nad been standing by, arretted Cook, and committed him to the lock-up watch house, from whence he was bailed out yesterday morning. The whole affair was caused from excess of drink while in company with some friends.

Mr. James Gordon Bennett:? Dear Sir :? Thinking perhaps a line from me at present ; would not come amiss, I will try and Rive a small but faint description of ivhat is doing here in the j way of business, amusements, politics, ?Scc. After my arrival in this goodly and pious city, which took place on the 3d instant, I took board at the Saint Charles Hotel. This is undoubtedly the most splendid und magnificent hotel in the United 1 States. Hoard here is very high. This house charges for board per week, from #12 to 920, according altogether to the r?om which you occupy, and other conveniences. Mr. Mudge arrived here j about a week ago. and gave a siilenaid party to hi? friends on Wedpesday evening last. Mr. Mudge. u is well known, is the gentlemanly proprietor of the Saint Charles Hotel, and spent most part of the summer in youf city at the Astor House. I suppose you have, ere this, heard of the great attraction here in the way of theatricals anil amusements. The St. Charles Theatre opened, several days since, and is doing a good business, a is also the Amefican: mask balls have commenced 1 in great numbers. Mrs. Sefton, who is manager of 1 the American, appeared in her beautiful character ' of Romeo, a few evenings since, and had a vefy j crowded house. A young gentleman from New York, is about to make bin uintrurnnr* nn the afu0i> in the character of Kichani the Third. This young man is well known by a large number of voting 5>eople in your city, and they will be much Mir-, prised to hear thM he is about to up|>earon the stage. i The ladies in Bedford. Hast Broadway, Suffolk, Ludlow, and many other streets, will be much surprised to hear this. He will appear on Sunday j evening next at the Saint Charles, in hi? favorite j character, under the name of or by the title of a j " Young (Gentleman front New ^ork." His rtnl name ia Chester H. Howes, who was well known | last winter as a correspondent of the Evening Herald that was started in your city, under the name of "Guzzleprut " A lot of fellows calling themselves Virginia Minstrels, are here at the , American ; they are, a complete humbug as regard' the Negro, Ethiopian characters, which they attempt to take, as they know nothing about it; if they do thev don't show any. Mercantile business is just upon the stir, and those acquainted with business seem to think there will be a good season. Sugar (new crop) is juM coming in; the levee yesterday had the most of ? ousinegs appearance it has had any time this sen son. The price is low at from 21-2 to 4 1-2 cents. Best new quality it* Helling on the wharf, and the brokers making Targe contracts with New York merchants to supply at 1-8 advance. Cotton ip coming down in tremeudout quantities. The wealthy concern of Dick & Co., hava now 13,<W0 bales on hand, holding up for prices. People are Hocking in from all parte of the country, and 1 may nay world, for in the winter this is the (freat rendezvous for the whole world. All kind of business is getting over done, There is too many in it, and trade is getting cut up, and there is now more real contention and opposition in trade than in New York city. The reason it. obvious and plain. Persons come here with a little money, and must at some rate get a livelihood, and, consequently, sell cheap out of their stores or send them to the auction room there to be sold at great sacrifice; this is the way in all kinds of trade, and in a few years New Orleans will be one of the " once was places." There are many young men that have been induced to come on acre with the idea that a fortune is to be made in one winter, and then go North and get married. This is the reason our streets are now lined and crowded with young men, many of thein very familiar to the eye, but not intimate with them. It is supposed that there is now about one thousand young and virtuous men in the city, seeking employment at something: some oi diem are running the streets as it they were up to tlieireyes in business, and they are just the ones that have nothing to do. Mr. Empie, the very polite and gentlemanly hook-keeper of the St. Charles, arrived in the steam ship Nentune, and has taken charge of his

appointment. Mr. Empie is one ol the most respectable young men that ever started from New \ork, ana by his industry and perseverance, has acquired quite a fortune, and will, undoubtedly be one of the proprietors next year of the St. Clurles. I wish you to give my best respects to Mr. W. H. Lewis, who, I am happy to hear, is about to take charge of a newspaper in this city. Mr. Lewis has talent of the tallest kind, and first order. Mr. Hughes arrived here in company with our young aud talented actor, C. U. llowes, and took board at the St. Louis Hotel. I am now going to dinner, and when I come back I will put a finishing stroke to this scrawl. I hayc just got back. I have only time to say, that the firemen are all out in procession; they present a noble appearance, but I hey are not the net of fellows that you have in New York. They have not /jot the bone and muscle, and strong hands and willing hearts among them that the New York firemen nave. Hut no more at present. Yours, Ramdom'ii.

Affairs at the Capital?Arrangements for Intelligence for the Herald?Indications?The Message ?Public Printer?Position of Parties, 4*''. The delegated wisdom of this model republic is now rapidly concentrating at the Capital city. Upwards of 150 national legislators are already on the ground, which is to be the scene of their future glory, if the fates have any of that commodity in store for them. Scarcely an hour passes without introducing to the broad walks of Pennsylvania avenue some accession to their numbers, and there is every prospect that on Monday morning next the campaign will be opened in the House of Representatives by a very full assemblage of the members. So far as they have yet displayed themselves 1 am inclined to believe the members of the coming Congress are generally working, industrious, practical men, with very little of the loafer and still less of the rowdy in their composition. They seem fully impressed with a sense of the arduous duties that are before them, and prepared to buckle up their sleeves, and begin the work in earnest. The prospect ahead seems charged with all the elements of distraction and strife, and it will be well if they are prepared to face their duties with that calmness and seriousness which have been so eminently dis regarded in the representative hall during recent sessions. The readers of the Herald may rely upon receiving full and faithful accounts of all the doings in the Capitol, as well as the earliest and most ample intelligence of what is going on in the more confined atmosphere of the White House. Perha|>s an opening of Congress never approached amidst such an utter darkness and mysteryas to what are to be the character and contents of the President's message. Of the contents, to be sure, it is impossible to prevent something being known, but what Mr. Tyler's recommendations are to be on the prevailing measures to which the message must refer, is a point upon which the most experienced caucussers and logroller^here seemed to be lamentably ignorint. In th? meantime, however, the great Done of contention among the intriguing, wire-working race of politicians is the election of Public Printer, whjlst those members who soar above the petty business of mere jobbing in poll tics, are dusv in speculation as to wnat is 10 ne the ground taken on the Texian and Oregon questions. The election of a printer, however, although it is ti matter in which the people have ah little interest as in the state of the thermometer at ] Titnbuctoo, will, it in thought, bring the Van Bu ren and Calhoun democrats into immediate collision, and thus throw light at once upon the question as to which of these parties is to be content to lay its back against the wall. Every member i.caugnt and canvassed with this view the moment he arrives, and the name of Francis P. Blair is the great locofoco watchword. Mr. John Jones seems to be nowhere. Fresh rumors spring up with every passing breeze, but they arc worth nothing more than to enable the oracular correspondents of some of the New York papers, to indulge the ppeculative fancies of their readers. This much is certain, however, that the question of the annexation of Texas will create ? tremendous sensation in Congress. A peat number of speculators in Texian lands are here ready to pour into the ears of members high sounding descriptions of the benefits that would accrue to both Republics by the union, and many elaborately prepared speeches are already cut and dry upon the subject. The general impression is that the President will recommend it very strongly in his message, and that a majority in both Houses will vote for it, which you are aware, will be sufficient to carry it through in the event of its coming up by purchase. President |Tyler is in his usual health, and attending daily to his duties. The clerks in the va i iwu? im-|?iiruu?-iii> ttic iiumv itiii uiiu uuy, wiui their copying labors, and all here are bestirring themselves to meet the very exciting and boisterous session of Congress that will commence on Monday.

Although gossip and slander, yet it was so curios I cannot resist the impulse to tell you of a genuine courting scene which took place to-day, in the cars, as we were coming on from Philadelphia. It commenced in jest, but as such affairs often do, enderi in earnest. The belle and beau took the same seal, and so zealous-wcre they, that this will doubllet* be the first notice they will have that their delightful tite-a-tHt was overheard by more than one curious listener. It was|a genuine t(tt-a tite, for the gentleman's head was not unfrequently covered by tne fair one's veil. In the first place she began by saying, that he was engaged to Miss , which he denied. After some furthei conversation he proposed to engage himself to her. A proposition, which, after the usual roundabout conversation, she graciously concluded toacccpt. That being settled, probably for the purpoee of testing her sincerity, he told her that he was only in just in what he had said. She replied, with some surprise? " Why, you said you were in earnest?I am sure I was in earnestwhereupon, he laughed heartily. Suddenly she turned her back upon him?put hei hn nil It prr h i ? # tn h#?r <>viHf>ntlv in irrput irri#?f "Hush that now," said he; "look here!" Suddenly she turned toward* Imn again. All the while the mother of the fnir girl, who sat about three seats in the rear, wan eyeing them very intently, and with mucli anxiety. " 0 r," said sh< to her daughter. "Had n't you better come anil take a seat over ny me!" "Oh no, mother. I have a vrry eomfortable peat indeed." Her motner saw it was of no line. "Look here," Raid he, "what will your mother say about it!" "Oh! I'll satisfy her.'" "Let me have your pencil." She gave it to him.

"Next Wednesday night?haft past seven?I'll be there: and in the meantime arrange it with mother." Her mother again repeater her inquiry ifC. were not fatigued. | Oh ! no?noi in the slightest degree." C c raised her vail. Taking her by the hand, and looking her directh in the face, ne said?"Now I am in earnest.'" "And so am I," said the ha|ipy fair one. In great haste, yours, Arc, S. B. [Correspondence of the Herald.] Ann Arbor, Michigan, ) November 25th, 1S-13. ) Thai for Murder?Shaking IVeathrr. My dkar bknnrrn? A most exciting trial for murder has just termi- | nated in this place. The facU of the case are , theseSome time in the month of June, of last year, two| Irish laborer*, of the names of Churles ( Chorr and Patrick Dunn, had an altercation, which resulted in Dunn's inflicting several severe blows, with'a stick or club, on the head of Chorr. At the complaint of Chorr, an action for assault was commenced against Dunn, and he bound over to apI>ear at the following November term of the Criminal Court of the County. An affidavit, made by Dunn, influenced a postponement of the trial to the May term of this year. The parties were neighbors, and the quarrel was constantly renewed. In the month of April, of the present year, Chorr borrowed from a friend, for the purposes, as he stated, of hunting, a rifle. On the morning of the 24th of that month, the neighborhood was startled by the report of a gun, nnd the cry of murder. Several persons hastened to the s|>ot whence the cry proceeded, found Dunn mortallv wounded, and on being ques tioned as to who inflicted the injury, he charged it upon Chorr. A step-son of Dunn, at the time of tiring of the gun, was in a position to observe Chorr, and saw him raise the instrument, take sight, Are, iVcc.. although he could not, from his station, see 1 his father. The evidence of this witness, the repeated, earnest, and solemn declarations of the murdered man, who did not expire until the fol lowing day, accompanied l>v the corroborative testimony of others, formed tne proof offered by the prosecuting attorney of the guilt of the prisoner. The counsel for the defence put in the now fashionable plea of insanity, which they made every effort to establish. The physicians of the county were examined at great length on the subject, the prisoner's counsel being assisted in the framing of the questions by Dr. Denton, who, judging from the ingeniousness and |>eculiar fitness of the interrogatories to the witnesses, has a familiarity with the causes and effects of insanity which can only be the result of deep reflection and great research. The taking of the testimony occupied from Wednesday, 15th inst., to this week Thursday. On Thursday afternoon, the associate of the prosecuting attorney, C. Hawkins, Esq., opened on the part of the State, and wasfollowed by ? Sedgwick, Eso., for the prisoner. Friday morning, N. Ramsdell, Esq., the principal counsel of the prisoner, commenced his argument, which occupied the entire day, terminating at ten o'clock P.M. All the ability and eloquence of the learned gentlemen, one of the most popular and successful criminal lawyers of our State, was exerted to obtain an acquitial. He was succeeded to-dav by Governor Mundy, prosecuting attorney, in a speech of six or seven hours, distinguished for ability, fairness and power. He commented with much and just severity on the now prevalent custom of referring every murder to insanity. The Judge immediately charged the Jury necessarily strongly against the prisoner, the evidence being so positive in its character; and they, after a short absence, returned with a verdict of guilty. The murderer is apparently a shrewd but exceedingly ignotant man. His previous character, according to many witnesses, wasgood, and his |>eaceful habits and quiet demeanor were sworn to. He has a large family of small children, who, in company with the mother, were present to-day during the charge of the Judge. The boy alluded to as having seen Chorr fire the gun, who is th? step-son of tne murdered man, and some fourteen years of age, displayed the grossest ignorance. When questioned on the stand, he said ne did not know east from west, or north from south; did not know, but thought a second or a minute was more than an hour, Jcc. During the progress of the trial, a large number of ladies graced the court room with their presence; and so great was their apparent interest, as frequently to detain them until the adjournment of tne court late in the evening. ?We have had here much rain of late, and we have every indication of an open winter. There is much activity in business, an abundant harvest, and every prospect of successful results, to the various agencies of production.

This demonstration was made on the part of the American Bank I,ock Co.. who manufacture Andrews' Combination Locks, and are deserving of great credit for their perseverance in demonstrating the insecurity of locks. The Permutation Lock has claimed a rivalship with Andrews' Combination Lock : but this test will efler tually end that, esjtecially as the lock and money in tins instance, were put up by John Day as a challenge of the security of liis lock, and every possible security given it.

There in a sufficient sum in the treasary to meet all the demands likely to be made on it for the year ensuing. The action now had on this subject was suggested at the last annual convention of the church in this diocese. To-morrow (Sunday) being Advent, the solemn preparation for the coming of Christ will commence. In the Roman Catholic Church, the Friday in eac h of the two ensuing weeks, and the Wednesday, Friduy, and Saturday in the third week, will be days of fasting and abstinence. The Rev. Dr. Maclay will preach in behalf of the American and Foreign Bible Society, at Camden, N. J., to-morrow morning j|at Hadaonfield, in the afternoon, and at |Morristown, in the evening. On Monday, at Evesham ; Tuesday, at Medford; Wednesday, at Vincentown; Thureduy, at Columbia; and Friday, at Jacobstown. On the succeeding Sunday, (the 10th inst.) he will preach at Bui* lington, in the morning; Mount Holly, in the afternoon, and at I'emberton, in the evening. A clerevman from this citv will visit the N nnian Catholic Church of Saint Elizabeth, at Port Elizabeth, N.J.,011 second Sunday of this month, and subsequently, on every succeeding Sunday of every month. The solemn cwremony of the administration of the Lord's SupiK?r, will take nlace on to-morrow (Sabbath) afternoon, at the IJniverealist Church, Phenix Street, Kensington. The centennial celebration of the organization of the Second Presbyterian Church, Eighth street, near Arch street, will be celebrated to-morrow. In 1743, bv the labors of the Kev. George Whitfield and the ITev. Gilbert Tennent, this congregation was established. The Kev. Dr. Cuyler will conduct the services, which will be appropriate to the occasion. In St. Michael's Church, Kensington, a sermon will be preached to-morrow, and a collection taken up for the benefit of the Roman Catholic Ladies* Henevolent Society. A special meeting has been called of the Third Presbytery (new school) of Philadelphia, by the Rev. James P.

The exercises for to-morrow (Sabbath) evening will be extended and interesting in the different churches, and as far as I can glean, will be as follows :?In the First Reformed Presbyterian Church, the Rev. Mr. Webster will deliver a discourse upon " The Divinely appointed means for the overthrow of Romanism by appointment of the American Protestant Association"; in Saint John's (Roman Catholic) Church, Bishop Kendrick will lecture on " The Primacy of the Pope"; in the Church of the Evangelist, (Episcopal) the usual annual discourse will be delivered ; in the Western Presbyterian Church, divine service will take place by a sermon from Rev. E. J. Richards, the pastor ; in the Union Presbyterian Church, the Rev. Mr. Stewart will lecture unon "The Antiquity, Unity and Catholicity of then omish Church"; in the Lombard Street Universolist Church Rev. Asher Moore deliversa lecture "On the destruction of the soul," from Mathew x., 28 ,in connection with Luke xii., 4. 5.; in the Fifth Presbyterian Church, the Rev. Mr. Graves will discourse upon "Spiritual Lions," from Proverbs x,Kii., 13.; in the South Baptist Church, (Fifth street, below Carpenter,) the pastor, Rev. E. Covel, will administer the "Ordinance of the Holy Communion;" in the Phcnnix Street Universalis! Church, a lecture will be delivered on "The gift of eternal life," from first John, v., 11.; and in the i> ? n] u .i.? t> -vi. u?.r.l xcailll X irniryiniilll vuuitll, 11CI. iui< wuaiu* man will dehver his first lecture on "the Apostolical Succession," which was postponed on lust Sabbath evening in consequence of his indisposition. The South Baptist Church, under the pastoral charge of Rev. E. Covel, is steadily increasing. This congregation was recently organized, and have admitted to fellowship an unusual number of members. A revival prayer meeting will be held on to-morrow (Sunday) afternoon at half past 3 o'clock, and aa the pews are all free, strangers can attend without fear of interruption. Lectures on the "Second Advent of Christ in 1843," will be given by George Storrs, in the Saloon of the Chinese Museum, to-monow morning, at half-past 10 o'clock, in the afternoon at 3, and in the evening at 7 o'clock. Seats free to all. In addition to the Sabbath evening exercises given above, the Rev. Thomas H. Stockton will continue the sermon to voung men, at the Methodist Protestant Church, Eleventh and Cross streets, and the Rev. Thomas Taylor will deliver a discourse on the "Religion of the Bible," at the church corner of Filth and Gaskill streetjeach commencing at 7 o'clock to-morrow evening. Ole Bull is bound to make a great sensation here as well as in your city. Expectation is on tiptoe to see him. Notwithstanding the weather last night, there was a tremendous house at the popular National, the attraction being the King of the Mist, the most successful piece produced for a long time; it will be repeated to-night, in addition to the play of " Wallace," in which Conner will appear as the hero, a part in which he is immensely popular. At the Chesnut, for Wallack's benefit, he will play " Rover" in Wild Oats, and "Massaroni" in the Brigand. Our talented Charlotte Cushman will ap|>ear as " Lady Amaranth," and the beautiful Susan Cushman will repeat " Maria Grazia," a part she sustained on Thursday with great truthfulness and judgment. Howe's Equestrian Troupe are yet at the Walnut ; they have been doing an excellent business. A man named Patrick McGann was seriously injured yesterday by a fall; he was taken to the hospital, where proper care was given to him. The office of the Delaware coal company, Walnut, near Third street, was entered on Thursday night by boring through the back window shutters. The burglars attempted to open an iron chest,which resisted their efforts, and they decamped empty handed. The business of the week may be considered fair for the advanced season of the year.
