NEW YORK HERALD. Xfw York, Monday, December 4, 1843. (Jra- We shall receive by the Acadia, ami have for tale at tbi* ottice, all the foreign papers, together with the London illustrated paper*, all of the latest dates. Opening or CoafrrM-Hcporti or thr Debates. Ate. Ac. Congress opens to-day. According to the best accounts, there will be no difficulty in the organization of the House, the Whigs having thought it beat not to oppose the admission of the members from the four recusant States, inconsequence of their having the " broad seal," the only prima facie evidence of authority. Such being the case, the election of Speaker and other officers will take place j as usual, and the Message will be delivered on Tuejudav. To-morrow night we expect this document. and on Wednesday it will appear in this j journal. In reference to the proceedings of Congress, we have engaged tt numerous corps of reporters and correspondents lor l?oth houses, who will give more graphic reports?daguerreotype reports?than can bp given in any other paper in the country. So our readers may prepare for nch treats during ; the winter. American Republican Party. The extraordinary movements of this new party, and the progress which they have made during the last few months, have excited a great deal of en- , quirv amongst the politicians of others, as to what their objects and purposes are. Almost every day | we have put to us such enquiries as these?"What j is the object of this party"?"?" What are they going to do?"?" Who are they in favor of for the Presidency?"?" Are they going to swallow up the whig party?" "Will they injure the democratic party?"?" How do they feel towards Clay?"? What do they think and say of Van Buren?" These, and a vatiety of questions are put to ns, which it may do very well to propose, hut which it may not be so very well just now to answer. Our view of the American Republican party we formed from what we knew of the condition of parties? from their past history?from what we see at present?from what we hear?and from calculation as to the probable tendency of the whole of the present agitation. We do not pretend by any means sav that our judgment is perfectly accurate, or that we. can distinctly see what results me coining. ' But wv suppose v. e liuve good a right and as i much ability to offer a conjecture as any person ; amongst them. First ol all, we may state that the new party in- ! tend to keep up a series of agitations in every ward j in the city?to take ground against all the corruptions, and follies, and vices of both th* whigs and locofocos, in relation not only to the city govern, ment, but in relation also to the State and (reneral Government?and particularly to keep united, to i sutler no elements ot disunion or disruption to en- I ter their ranks?but to keep together until they j learn their strength, as in one single, united bodv, i < they march to the polls next April. We know that j many of the whig politicians in this city nre regarding the movements of " Young Ame- j Tiea" with much alarm, and doubt, and uncertainty, and fear and hope. The appearance amongst the American Republicans of the Hon. Moses H. Grinnell, in the third ward, in shape of a Mentor, advising them what to do, and what to avoid, wan a very . igniticant event indeed. It intimated very clearly what that class of politicians think of the movements of this new and iKiwerful party. And, on the other hand, we are at no loss to know what the democrats think of them, their movements in two or three of the wards having thrown considerable light on that point. Both the old factions calculate a good deal on the chances of the occurrence of disunion in the new party. , We can assure them that they need not lay that i , flattering unction to their souls. There will be no ; , disunion. The party will be as unbroken as the phalanx of the victorious Alexander, until the spring election will proclaim that they have carried the city of New York?Mayor, Common Council, and all? by an overwhelming majority; and after that point has been obtained, what then'? Why, then, we have no doubt the party will be very far from retiring from their labors. Success of that sort is not very likely to lend a great political body to seek repose. The struggle will then he, not only to retain, but ( to extend their dominion. And, in order to do ho, they will cast their eyes abroad to see whether tliev cannot detect some points of coalition?of assimilation. They will endeavor to discover other masses of the people, in other parts of the Union, which they can bring into their embraces, and thus prepare for a grand, united movement all over the land. Well, are there any such points'! Are there any such masses of the people 1 Are there any spots which invitethe extent ion of the roots of this great organization? We believe that there are. According to the latest and best accounts, the present House of Representatives is composed of three parlies, or three bodies of men?the Whigs numbering about 60 ; the Locofocos, in favor of caucusses and national conventions, about 80?the remaining 50 or 60 being men who are disgusted with the intrigues and corruptions of both parties, and who wish for reform. We have no doubt that during the session events will bring about the development in a still broader light of this refonn party in the House, and pave the way for a coalition with the great refonn movement out of doors. And then again, if we turn to Albany, we find a very analogous state of things. In the House of Assembly I there, we have the same elements, and in about i the name proportions. Now with all these elements of reform?of the new movement, in embryo as it were,?just awaiting the moment when favorable circumstances will ! call them into vigorous independent existence, what is there, after the spring election in this city, to prevent the organization of the American Kepubcan forces all over the Union 1 And what then .o J.d be interposed with nny f?cc<*ps in the way of i - *T.;>lete and thorough Mom in a" our jH?litical systems1 l'ne elements of a great, independent omnipotent party, exist all over the Union?they j have been growing up for years paM?they only j awair the summons to coalesce, and mould themselves into one vast, overshadowing body. And | that summons will, we think, be given in the splendid triumph and proof of strength which awaits t the first embodiment of the reform spirit in the great metropolis of the Union next April. ~ Maoazinf Literati;**.? In no department of our literature do we more need the impression of a healthy current of substantial and original talent than in the magazines. They are for the most part filled with the vilest trash, 111 the shape of namby-pamby love stories?doggerel of all sorts? and stupid attempts at literary criticism. Occa- i sionally, indeed, a good paper is met with, but very j rarely. The IMmocratic Review, for instance in I which, by-t be-by, there Ir a Rood deal of transcendental and other 1 rash published,?contains now and then a very excellent and valuable article. We have seen sound papers from the accomplished and experienced pen of Major Davezac, which are something in the style and spirit of the article* which should fill the pm?es of our magazines. We think the time has coine when a carefully conducted |>e- i nodical,filled with solid, substantial pa|iers in the various* department* of literature, would succeed. The public are getlinx sick of the traah which hae lately inundated the country, and would gladly ex- I chin#1' ii f?>r something better. I^et the work of reform be then commenced in the literary world. | We have veiy excellent writers amongst us who are now atarvmff. <iive them a chance u> do some thin* toward* the creation of a national literature. Tiifc Missi no Man.?A man named Bernard Mealy, waa drowned on the Mth of last October in the liudaon near Went Point. Jfis wife has ju*.t beaid ot this di?aai? i to hej family. Calamities of Apthohs.?Park Benjami* ani> Lkwij. Fitz<.erau> Tasistko.?ll will be perceived, from our I'ohce reports, thai bome very carious 1 scenes, in which these distinguished literati figured, have been enacted at the Police oftice. It apjieurs, that inconsequence ol an abusive article in the "New World," accusing Mr. Taaistro?who was about to commence the publication of a paper in Michigan, of some unmentionable crime of some kind or other, Mr. Tasistro had Park Denjumin and Winchester arrested, and held to bail, to answer to the charge of libel. On the other side, by wayo f returning the compliment, Park lienjamin had Tasistro arrested on a similar charge, and hound over to answer; ho that there is now an encouraging prospect that the two distinguished authors will both appear us culprits, at the bar of the Court of Sessions?both be convicted?and sent to Hlackwell's Island, where they can study the geological formations of that interesting portion of our tertitory, under Mike Walsh. This is a most curious cas?. Of the origin of the controversy we have no idea, unless it be literary rivalry, and both gentlemen are men of genius, talent and cultivated intellect. Henjanun is the greatest poet?Tasutro the most accomplished critic, Both are very handsome men?possess tine phrenological developments?Imve a dashing and agreeable address?but probably, with less polish than his rival, Tasistro has more speed, and an equal |>ortion of bottom. The first attack between these gentlemen took place about a year ago. We forget who was the aggressor. Hut we published some of the articles, and amongst them a furious reply by Benjamin to one of his antagonist's attacks. To that Tasistro wrote a rejoinder, very respectably spiced and peppered, and which ap|>eared to disagree so much with Mr. Benjamin's digestive organs, that he wrote a note to us, threatening to prosecute us for libel of we republished it. Not at all ambitious of becoming mixed up with the belligerents, we did not interfere. Nor will we now. We shall allow them to tight it out, and enjoy the gladiatorial exhibition with becoming gout. In the meantime, however, we suppose the world will jog along as usual?the sun shine as benignantly as ever?the moon give her light?the stars twinkle?and cheap literature go ahead. Gentlemen, we wish youboth a very good morning, and a pleasant settlement of your little difficulties. Musical Mania in other Cities.?Throughout (lie. Union the enthusiasm which has been kindicu in this city is spreading rapidly, and can scarce keep within bounds. The "Philadelphia Gazette" thus speaks of the concert given by Cinti Damareau and Aitot, on Friday night, in that city:? The concert at the Musical Fund Hall last night drew together a very discriminating and enthusiastic audience. The entertainment wan of the highest musical character. The tinging of Madame Oamorenu exceeds any that we hav?- h<>nrd in this country, in exquisite and elaborate finish, in a truth and purity of execution almoit instrumental. It exceeds belief almoat, that the voice can be trained to such perfect command. This was most remarkable iu the last duet between the violin and the voice, by Mad. Damoreau and Mons. Artot, the effect of which was entrancing!)- delicious. The two sweetest and most ex Lurasive ut iiisiruineuis mui mum in exquisite concord, keeping pace with each other, a? it were, in every fantastic revel of the ornate taate of the composer, made such jelightful sound* aa rapt the hearer in Klysium. Loud uid rapturous applauae followed this wonderful display of ?rt. With nil this art, Mad. Damoreau combines alio great I ueling, remarkable and earnest expression, and a faultless astc. What she does, ii .lone as judiciously as skillfully. \ just knowledge of her own powers teaches her never < o tax them too much, and her discrimination keeps her < iviQiin bounds in her execution. In a word, her style is :aultless, or ?o, at anv rate, it seems to us. She received ' svery mark of appreciation from the audience of last uight. \ Mons. Artot's violin had, singly, no less power to more j he heavens. He is undoubtedly a great matter of his art. rhe thrilling, mysterious pathon of his tones, particularly ! in the adagio movements, in which he seems to u* to ex- ( eel, might mo\e one to tears. With such sweet air as this, Ariel led Ferdinand.?If Ole Bull, Vieuxtemps, und ' the rest are greater than Artot, we shall want words to tell | of their merits. Aa for the Bostoniant>, they are absolutely going crazy, and the strain is already at such a pitch, that unlets a little ran he let off by Castellan, we ex|>eet the entire city will be convulsed with the explosion, utid we cannot hold out to them the smallest consolation. The South is the direction to which tends the current at this moment, and our dear friends in Boston must content themselves with listening to thekmusic of the mail steamers until the spring, when we intend to exchangt?they shall give up the Cunard line to New York, and in return New York will condescend to allow < >le Bull, Oldffiines, andCinti . with Artot, to pay them a short visit?a very short one, as we cannot afford them too much, 1 for what they cannot keep from us. If, howevet, they cannot wait until spring, we ad vise tli?*m to come on here. The Aslor, Howard's, mul all our hotels, have plenty of room, and there is no fear of their being placed on short commons. I This is the only remedy we can devise; and if they 1 won't take our advice?which we give in the most i-haritable spirit pogsible?then?why let them burst, w? cannot help them. llut to what does all this enthusiasm tend T It is to produce a spirit of rivalry, of glorious competition; to kindle among'our citizens a spirit of refinement and elevated taste, which will do more than all the scheming, intriguing and B|>ecchifying of politicians, and heartless place-hunters; to build our institutions, our laws, and our free republic, 1 upon a basis more lasting and secure than the world has ever yet seen. Here is now a concentration of musical talent and skill, which cannot be found on the European continent. In song, 1 we have Madame Sutton, Castellan, Cinti 1 Damoreau and Borghese?while, on the in- ' Ktruinent, we have Ole Bull, Wallace, Artot, 1 Nagel, and the yet unheard Vieuxtcinps. What a galaxyWhat a host of talent, genius, ongi- I nality and excelling skill! Search the cities of L'.? I 11 If ? it . i.urui*-, *tihi cuii, 11 you can,sucn a musical noquei as we present to the world. With the exception of Grisi in song, and Sivori on the violin, we have all the master-spirits of the day. As if to mar the harmony of the whole, a net of silly, empty-headed Frenchman, through the medium of a small and obscure French paper, have been warping their brains by writing: musical criticisms, ns foolish as they nre illiberal, extolling Artnt, and depreciating OJe RnlJ. We recommend these French barkers to stick to the curling-to;.0.-, and not to meddle in matters of which they are as ignorant, as the genius of Hull is superior to the talent of Artot. Our citizens can judge for themselves, and have taste and discrimination, which this clique of contemptible |>seudo critics are lacking in. They can appreciate true genius, and while they award the wreath of glory to Ole Bull, they withhold not a fresh garland from the brow of Artot. l.atk l.ytet.uofnck FROM miroit..?

He was attended by crowds to the boat, lie returns to-morrow, und gives another concert here at the Park, also to-morrow night, to he followed by a coneert on Thursday night at the Tabernacle. We understand that the following are the programmes on both occasions:?

S.?"Adelaide/1?Comjioaed by Beethoven, lung by Madame Spohr-Zahn. 9.?"II (.'amavaleldi Venezia."?Variation* by I'afcamni, performed by Ole Bull. The enthusiasm created by Ole Bull, not only among the public, but among musician*, is higher than anything we ever have seen. One instance, the orchestra of the l*ark theatre, after the close of the performances last Friday evening, waited upon the great "maestro," at his residence, at the Astor House, and, taking him quite by surprise, honored him with a serenade, in which several most exquisite pieces were executed, in a manner capable of being excelled by no other orchestra in the world. The Orchestra then, upon the invitation of Mr. Bull, adjourned to the dining room, where champagne flowed plentifully, and where wit of the rarecst kind enlivened the cheerful company for an hour. Several excellent speeches were made ; and those which fell from the accomplished artist, who was the theme of their praise, told excellently well for his head and his heart. Several of the Speakers were unacquainted with our language, and this circumstance gave rise to n-iii.iv a lou.l !r"igh. The following is a faithful report of one of the speeches made on the occasion; Oextlema* :?You have all of von drunk Ole Bull an one miuician. I shall not drink him or one munician?for a* one musician, he has been drunk all over the world for a very long time. But a? one man, I therefore, gentlemen, propose the health of Ole Bull, "No musiciuu but the one man.'' (Th? real ono-man power, said a critic.) The company dispersed much delighted with the scene, with three cheers for the Hull. As yet, no artist that has ever been heard in this city, has reached the genius, originality, power and enthusiasm of Ole Bull. Artot is a most admirable and finished performer, but is no rival and never can be. Wallace has genius and originality, but divides his soul in two equal divisions from the , heart out between two instruments, the violin and the piano. Vieuxtemps, who bus just arrived here from London, accompanied Ly his sister, M id'ile Vieuxtemps, also an accomplished musician and elegant woman, it is said, is the only nrtirt tha( :an enter into rivalry or competition with :he great Norwegian. Vieuxtemps is quite froung, is a native of Belgium, and is, thereore, half French and half German?a cross that sometimes produces wonders. He has a high repualion, but not so old or so extended as Ole Bull's Last summer, Vieuxtemps played in London bclore royalty, and was placed in the highest rank of artists?even equal, if not before Sivori. the Italian performer. After this awful week shall have pa**- j ed awov, we shall bo better able to judge, for on Monday next Vieuxtemps intends to give u concert at the Tabernacle, and to dispute the crown of music with Ole Bull himself. In the meantime, rvery circle?every "set?every soul?every heart, pvery being, are getting madder and madder after inusie?the legitimate drama was never so low.? May heaven in its mercy permit poor, unhappy, for- 1 :unate, extatic, miserable, wonderful, mysterious ' New Ydtrk to retain her senses for one month at 1 leant, we shall then pay our tailor* bills and die 1 contented. The end of the world must come. Wai.t. Street Gamblino?Stock Speculations. i ?The organization of the new Board of Brokers j in connexion with the line of policy adopted recently l>y the hank*, has undoubtedly created a ( great deal of stock speculation in Wall street, which seems to run very much into something like gambling. During the last six months various efforts were made to produce an excitement in the stock market, but they wero unsuccessful until the hanks, by the policy of certain directors, went deeply into it. Since then very singular effects have been produced. Many persons have made snug fortunes who were formerly penniless; and several, i who had iust taken the benefit of the Bankrupt Act, have realized very handsome sums. We un- ' derstand that at least three or lour of the biokers in the new Board have cleared their #50,000 or ! $60,(MM); and that one of these fortunate person*, in order to prevent the unpleasant effects of u con- J tingency, has settled #20,(MM) on his wife. This ; stock gambling is a very serious and melancholy i business. Regarded altogether without reference | lo its morality, it is one dangerous in the extreme, i It may be profitable for individuals for a time, but j few indeed can come out of it safe. Those who i venture deepest mid with the greatest apparent skill 'and caution, generally lind themselves beggared in the end. llut then it is justly to be regarded as the chief Bource of those defalcations, and embezzlements, and robberies which have so often disgraced our financial circles. The stock gambler, in the maddened excitement of misfortune and Io.-m, cannot resist the temptation to attempt to retrieve his fortune by means which do not belong ( to him, and he plunders, therefore, whenever and vvhi rever he can. Wer.iuatsny that the policy of , tie 'a.inki. in uitk-avorir' f rc? up vain -hr* stocks, is very cjuestionable indeed. The stockholders of these institutions should take the matter i into most serious consideration, and be prepared to act accordingly at the next election of directors. , v? \,? a 7...... i iir.vrsrar&K i?i?ivp..ur.iis.?*a iriy ruiniurmwn newspaper development, or revolution, is faking place about these tinier. A new pai>er to be called the " True American," price cash, twa cent*, is to appear to-day, to support, among other things, the cause of the American Republican party. This new peper has been set on foot, we are informed, by the independent republicans who formerly belonged to the whig party, and who have heretofore supported the "Tribune." The singular course of the "Tribune," in relation to Fourierisru, a new *peei"9of galvanized infidelity piul mini' rility, and also in relation to O'Connellisni, having disputed the i sober nnd res|>ectable wings, they I.mtc reontl> 1 withdrawn in great nnmbers from the "Tribune." : and have now contributed to mart th?

A torreut of abuse ?as di.sguMing and contemptible as it? source?Imp been poured out by the Esjnttt against the estimable President of the St. Andrew's Society, Mr, Irwin, Itecnuse a report of the proceeding* at the annual dinner of the Society, last week, appeared exclusively in the Utrald. It seems that some person attached to the Ex)>rtu, who gets lus victuals by hook and by crook, at the different hotels and at public dinners, openings of houses of entertainment, and similar occasions, having, probably, failed in getting a plate at the Astor table, or some other table, onthat^day, hurried down to the City Hotel, and actually had the impudence tosend a dirty, almost illegible note, to the President of the St. Andrew's Society, requesting admission to the dinner. The note had certainly an awfully ferocious appearance, and doubtless the writer had an appetite for which a satiated alderman would willingly have given any price. We have no doubt the poor fellow was quite furious with hunger. He was, however, refused admittance, not by Mr. Irwin, who had, of pminii* lirtfhiriflr to (In UL'ith tko uM-uiu?in?ntu Imt 111' one of the stewards, who very properly regarded the note with a good deal of huspicion, remarking that lie could not think of admitting Tom, Dick and Harry, to the table, and therefore ordered one of the servants to inform the ferociously hungry applicant that the gentlemen begged to decline the pleasure of hiscompany at the table. Now, the steward was unquestionably right. The note itself was prima facie evidence that the applicant was not a proper candidate for admission to the company of gentlemen. It might have come from a boot-black or a barber; indeed it was not respectable enough to have come from a barber, for a barber can write a note which will present a respectable appearance. But the miseruble lazzaroni literatuut immediately hurried to the J?xj>reu office, and writes an abusive article, calling Mr. Irwin all sorts of opprobrious names, and attacking the reports in the Herald us imaginations. But did the boot black or lazzaroni, imagine for a moment, the credit he was thus giving us 1 If all these reports, which appear in our paper, be mere fiction, then we think that in a very short time we ought to be placed side by side with Shakspeare at least. But we do not make any higher pretensions, at present, than to he regarded as the faithful historian of the age. We are quite content with being able to give the best and most accurate and most comprehensive reports, as is admitted on;all hands. And as to the circulation of the Herald, which was also alluded to, every body knows that it spread the report of the proceedings at the dinner over ten times the space, and in an infinity of quarters where the Express was never heard of and never will be. It is indeed very funny to hear our circulation talked about by the Express?a paper which circulates a few hundred in this city, and is sold for wrapping paper at the small groceries. Common Council.?Both Boards of Aldermen meet to-night, the result of which meeting will be mnrl<? Lnnwti tn.mnrrnu' Tn tht> mpnntimp rmr Btreets, which for the past eighteen months have been the dirtiest of any civilized city, still are so, dud Ironi present appearances ever will be. Th? community is infested with crime and criminals; hud we have no remedy save the recent patrol police, established through the police magistrates, that lias exercised a most salutary influence in preventing burglaiieg. The report of Alderman Tillou on this subject, we understand, will beimadein a few Jays, and we also learn that it will exhibit a moat complete detail of crime, its extent and remedy; L?ut we fear he has collected too much for the body of city fathers to wude through before the next spring election But we shall sec what we shall see. In the meantime, we have merely to say that if the present Common Council does not carry out the measures of reform so long promised, the American Republicans will. The Cot:rt of Genbbal Sessions commences its December term this morning at 11 o'clock. Tub Hutchinson Famii.t.?To-night these sweet ninstrels, from "The Old Granite State," give their ast Concert at Niblo's Saloon, prior to their departure south.

They are a talented family, and deserve the warm sympathy of our citizens. City Intelligence.

Benjamin and Winchester, who were arrested on Friday, for a libel on Tasistro, h ive now turned the tables in him, and we shall have some fine fun in the Court ot Sessions, where the characters of the respective parties will be discussed by aome|of our learned, pungent,and sarcastic lawyers. Tasistro was bailed by the keeper of the "Croton Hotel." Rorbinh x Piitsician.?A colored man, named Timothy B.

Turner appears as the Courier of St. IVtersDunrh. This is said t-> be a very daring and 2 racefuiastof horsemanship. Mr. Serjeant ami Mrs. IJolc appear in a new extravaganza, called Pnlichinel and Joan, with a variety of feats of double trampoline, slack rope, comic singing, lie.

[CorrW]>on(]enc? of the Herald.] Washington, Dec. 1, 1813. The Congrtuional Snotr Storm?Public Printing ' ?lit humbug, aiul its Protpfrtt?II7io it to he Sjtraktr??Organization of thr House? liifflculties from the District Si/ttem?Opening of Balls, 4*c. 4"' The denizens oi the capitol were greeted, at * early rising, this morning, with a disagreeable and snowy prospect. When I emerged from my Gol-1 gotha, the streets bore evidence that a heavy snow-j 1 fall must have commenced somewbrre about "the wee short hour ayont the twal," and judging from the thick clustering of the flakes around the unfor- j tunate pedestrians, who exposed themselves to i their embrace, it had all the appearance of a "setin." The natives immediately recognized it as what is" called here, "The Congressional Snow Storm," and made up their minds to the enjoyment of a day or two of its cooling influence, at least. It continues, while I now write, without in- ( dilution ot abatement. There has not been a re- ( ' gular Session of Congress for many years, at the ' | mustering ior which the members have not met j with this same cool reception liere?and hence the I name. In this state of the weather, as might he ' expected, all the caucussing, begging, trimming, cajoling, and wire-working, has been carried on at i the bar rooms, and in other parts ot the hotels i where most' members were to be found. J (Jadsby's and Brown's were the two grand scenes of action, and if there is anything noble in the most indomitable industry 1 and perseverance, nobly has the work been carried on. But, if a patriot was to enquire, as naturally j he might, what great national question was pressing its consideration so earnestly upon these legislative coteries, he would laugh when he was told : that all the interest to the people, which was involved in so much begging, buying, bargaining and ' swapping ofinterests, consisted in whether the profits , of the public printing should go into the pockets of Mr. Francis P. Blair, into those of Mr. Amos Ken- ' dall, or into those of Mr. W. C. Bryant. It is, to be sure, a splendid piece of gammon, that is regularly \ played off about the choice of the printer, display- 1 ing the strength of parties, &c., and it ought to be treated with contempt by honest politicians. They should elect to the public printing a man whose honesty, sobriety, intelligence, enterprize, and perseverance, have stamped him an example and a model for others in his profession, and send these office hunting, would-be " public printers" home to chew the cud of regret, that they had not applied their energies to the pursuit of an open course of business, instead of loaiing so industriously around the public treasury. There would then be more honest zeal, more expansive patriotism, more real statesmanship, and less intrigue, less trickery, i.nd less corruption interwoven with politics. All is uncertainty as vet how the election of 1 Printer will go. None of the candidates have been idle to-day. Every member of the House of Representatives lias been attacked as to his vole as soon as he has been recognized, and nil the (>owers of delicate and fond persuasion, insidious argument, and open remonstrance, in their turn, brought to bear upon his opinion. The friends of the prominent candidates (the three before named), advance their interests upon somewhat different grounds. Kendall claims the prize, because he has fought, tricked, and manoeuvred, and flayed deeper ?ames than the others have done for the party. Blair foams ut the mouth, and shows them how much, and in what a rascally manner he has been blackguarded on their account, while Bryant displays more generalship than his competitors, by quietly working his way into the affections of all who comeB along, and impressing upon them the importance of the late democratic triumph in New York. So far as can be judged of the result of this day's hard plotting, it leaks out that Kendall, whom somebody funnily enough'christened " the old political war horse," will be sent to grass, and Blair will take Bryant into partnership to do the work in the office of the Globe. If Blair declines this arrangement, probably Bryant will be the successful candidate. But I think the oartnership concern will be the thing, as they all seem inclined to coalesce or do anvthins else to secure a part, if they find it impossible t? get the whole of the spoils. | If Bryant is elected, he will owe his success to Hlair's unblushing efforts to drive Mr. Calhoun ofl the field, without allowing him a chance to show , his strength. . i Amidst all this teiupcst about who shall be print- i er for the House, it is believed that (tales, of the i Intelligencer, who believes that half a loat is better 1 than no bread, will have little difficulty in pocketing the businem of the Senate; and John Jones, in 1 accordance with an opinion which he has long gloried in declaring, that "small fish is better than none," will content himself with picking up the crumbs of patronage that may fall from the Fresi- , dent's individual tattle. i The election of Speaker has been of secondary i interest; and there are so many candidates named. ' with apparently equal chances, that it is impossible to name the man. Amongst the most prominent aspirants for the chair are Sir. Dixon H. Lewis of ' Ala.; Mr. Jones of Va.; Mr. Dromgoole of Va.; Mr. Beardsley of N. Y.; Mr. Campbell of S. C.; \ Mr. Wilkins of Pa.; and Mr. Johnson of Tenn. , These, of course, are all democratic nominees; j but although many members are strongly pressing tor the man of their choice, it is believed that no division of feeling amongst the democrats will be i shown in the House on this election. Some concessions will be asked and given in caucus, and the democrats will enter the Hall prepared to vote solid upon the nominee preferred. In tne meantime, the whigs, or, as the locofocos call them, "the coons," are last asleep. They seem to have nothing to do with electioneering at pre- i *ent. They will creep out i?f their holes to nominate the last SiK-aker, Mr. White, for re-election; 1 l>ut they will do so merely to show that the coon 1 is not killed yet?not with any hope of carrying ; 1 him. But before these elections are gone into, there is the promise of a bright Hare up in regard to the admission of those members who have been elected by general ticket, in violation of the law of last Congress, ordering the division of the States into districts. This will be a glorious subject for some of the members to constitutionalize upon. Thede: { legations from Georgia, New Hampshire, Missouri , ind Mississippi are in the dilemma. The repudia- ( ting delegation from Mississippi has not yet arrived. , (t will be a sad thing if, after all, their desperate , druggies in such a cause, they in their turn are re- j pudiated by the House. There was a grand ball given here last night, (or 1 the benefit of the i>oor. It was grand, but like ma- 1 ny things grand, alas, not productive. It was nn- J nounced under the patronage of the IIou. A. Up- , <hur, and other distinguished officials. The sceptre. | iiowever, hits departed from Judah. This exalted : patronage scarcely attracted enough to pay ex,tenses. J. E. Washington. [Corre?pondence of the Herald.] Washington, Dec. 1, 1M4H. J. Gordon Bennett, Esq.? Dkak Sir:? The Congressional intellect of Washington, ' ahout these days," is in rather a disturbed and unsettled state; and so loggy, that few things call he j <een with certainly at any great distance. A very I lanre delegation of members is here, already enough tor a quorum. The great questions now in agita- i tion are, of course, the candidates for Speaker and j Printer of the House. I cannot speak with confi- i lence, but at present it would appear that Mr. Jones, >f Virginia, the Van Ruren candidate, has decidedly the best chance for election. The friends of Mr. i Van Buren are confident that they have a majority 1 sufficiently large to beat nil opiwsition, even though ' the ('nlhoun men should unite with the whigs.? Judge Wilkins, of Pennsylvania, is a prominent candidate, but friendly to the nomination of Mr. ' Buchanan : and the friends of Mr. Van Buren, for ' the sake of conciliation, would be pleased to select 1 him ; but for fear his election, instead of being conrtrued into conciliation, would rather be construed , into the weakness of Mr. Buchanan, they willj>ro- , bably not vote for him. It appears likely, therefore, < 1U..1 Mr Imil's will be elected Tin* flfmncratic ' , nembem at first thought it best not to hol<l a mucus ' it nil, in order not to throw anv obstacles in the way of |>erfect union in their ranka; hot they have to-day resolved on holding a caucus to-morrow norning. Something definite will, therefore, he mown in season for my next letter. 1 need not <tate that Dixon H. Lewis is the prominent Calhoun andidate. Mr. Heardsley, of New York, and I>r. Davis, of Indiana, are also candidates. For the printing of the House, the most prominent 'andidatenare Blair& Rives, of the (Jlobe.

Next, and perhans even mote prominent in oint of availability, is Mr. Rryatil, of the JiveninK 'out, who is here. Of Mr. Kendall, I hear but litle said, although 1 believe lie is yet a candidate for he printing.

There is n letter in town intimating that a ninn inswering t!ie description of August .Tacobi, who is now in Moyamensing prison, left Warren county, New Jersey, on the night of the murder of the uaatner family. It i9 said he deserted his wife", who is in the Alms House at that place Since Jacobi's commitment, he is regarded as an insane man, yet I think it would not be singular if it were discovered he was somewhat acquainted with the circumstances of the murder, as he alleged. 1 presume there will be another investigation of the matter, of which, should there be, 1 will inform you. At*the Chestnut street last night, with a strong bill and tor Wallack's benefit, 1 am sorry to say tliere was an indifferent house.

A dishonest scamp ot n cab driver on Saturday took in his vehicle a gentleman at the Railroad Depot, a stranger here, with the implied purpose of driving him to a hotel; which instead of doing he drove nirn to an unfrequented part of the city and there attempted to rob him.
