Last evening we received our lirst package from our numerous corps of correspondents and repor- ; tcrs now stationed at Washington, giving us some of the most interesting intelligence relative to the ! first movements of the two great parties at Wash- i ington. It seems that Mr. Van Buren and his policy has triumphed throughout Out of 146 democratic' members now elected to the House, 1181were on the ground, went into caucus, and at the first ballut har? agreed uj>oh a Van Buren Spcaktr. A vote was nut taken on printer to the House. This was i to he done yesterday morning, but we have very 1 little doubt but lllair and Rives will lie the fortunate candidates. We also learn that no obstructions will be made to the admission of the members from the recusant States; objections to be taken afterwards, and re_ ferred to a committee. The President's Message therefore, will probably be delivered to-day, and published in this city to-morrow morning. Mr. Calhoun appears to have submitted to his destiny?the wliigs not heard of. Washington, Sunday, ) 3 o'clock. 1'. M.. Dec. 3. 1843. ^ Mr. Bennett:? The deinocrutic members held a caucus last evening; 113 members were present, 77 of whom voted for the election of Mr. Jones, of Virginia, for Speaker. All.tlie democratic cliques were present, Calhoun men, Buchanan, Cass, Johnson and Tyler men. No other business was transacted, although there was much talking. Intense interest is now felt about the election of Printer. The nomination of Jones is thought to look more favorable to Bryant, who is looked upon with less objection by the opponents of Van Buren. The President's friends reason thus:?The election of Blair & Rives ensures the nomination of Van Buren?Benton successor. This ensures j tlie election of Clay, because the op|>osition of the j Iriends of the anti-Van Buren candidates is so strong that they will prefer to have Clay president iu order to breark up all the old party organization, and prepare the way for nn available candidate, (which of course is John Tyler). Then run Van Buren?break him down by beating him?organize on new grounds and new measures. Tyler can rely on his Bank vetoes, Arc., and thinks he will be the most available candidate. He thinks Calhoun and others will never vote for Van Buren on the above grounds,each one of course, $oing,for himself. The President is yet feeble?lie is reading the Mvsteriea of Paris.

M., Dec. 2, 1843. 5 Javes Gordon Bennett, Esq. :? Dear Sir, The democratic members held a caucus this morning at the Capitol. The meeting was called to order by Mr. Hopkins, of Va., and Charles J. Ingersoll, of Pa., was appointed'ehairman. About j eighty members were present. Hopkins, of Va., i aud Brown, of Indiana, were appointed secretaries. 1 A committee of five members [Hopkins, of Va.. Steenrod, of Va., Payne, ot Alabama, l>unlat?, of) Maine, Strong, of New York, as nearly as 1 can | ascertain] was appointed to draw up a set of rules j for the government of future meetings. They th>?n adjourned to meet this evening at eight o'clock The action had this morning was somewhat of at< j informal character, and perhaps rather a conven- j tion to feel tl' p'ike relative to a caucus hereafter j It is nrettv certain that Mr. Tones, of Va., will be nominated and elected for Speaker. But it is doubtful if Blair Ac Hives arc elected Printers, i The southern members are most decidedly oppowd ; to their election?and should they be forced upon the party by the friends of Van Buren, a breach in the ranks, so far as the next President is concern* d, | seems inevitable. The horoscope at this present writing is altogether favorable to Mr. Bryant. The Calhoun men insist upon the election of Judge SturKis, of Georgia, for Clerk. There is such u multitude of opinions, and conjectures of .every hue and character, that it is hazardous to risk any expression of opinion beyond what I have already stated. Yours, ?Src. S. B. Washington, D.*C., Dec. 2, 1H43. ) ' 7 o'clock, Evening.$ This morning the weather was dirty, gloomy, and disagreeable; the stieets were wet, and the sky was overcast; every thin^ out of doors had an ugly appearance. To the equal astonishment and joy of all, however, about 10 o'clock A. M., the cur tain wae suddenly drawn upon this dampening scene, and the genial presence of a bright and slowing sun, cheered every henrt with the prospect of a visit to the " lions" of the Capitol. Shortly afterwards, " the beautiful ladies, (rod bless their souls," (as the Whigs sung of them at the Harrison election,) were out in all the pride of hlootn and beauty, and Pennsylvania Avenue presented a <la7.7.1 in? array of loveliness, grace and gayety. By the bye, there is at present a more brilliant display of female beauty and fashion here, than ever on a previous occasion, lent the magic of their presence to the Capitol, whether the romantic episodes in which Washington letter writers are apt to indulge, have attracted them to the scene, or they have anticipated the storm and fury which are likely to | characterize the session, now on its eve, and have come, by their presence, to cool down the wrath of the lords of creation, I cannot say. f must bid them adieu for the present, however. All the democratic members elect now in this city met in caucus this morning, to try if they could unite upon nominees of Speaker, Printer, Clerk, ?Vc. Tneir wish is, of course, to go into the House, on Monday, with the apjxaranct of unanimity. I his, although a very laudable pro- j l?Tt, it waa soon perceived, would he one of not so asy accomplishment. The fact is, the Van Buren j party, previous to the caucus, had committed an : ?*rror in their summing up. In conning over, nlii- ; losophizing upon, and working out the developments of yesterday, they concluded they could rally in caucus a majority of the whole democratic | votes. This error arose from their belief that they i might safely place the cabalistic letters, V. B., o|>postte the namesof all who were not acknowledged | Calhoun men. When they met, however, tinfriends of Johnson, Buchanan, and Cans, upset the i whole machinery in the Van Buren workshop, and brought the business of the caucus to a stand still. This might have been anticipated. Those parties i know, or believe, at any rate, that Van Buren is the strongest candidate, on the democratic ticket, i in the field, and it is their interest to prevent any I demonstration of his strength previous to the convention nomination. Calhoun they do not deem it j so material to oppose?they have no idea of him] receiving the nomination, and, therefore, in these ; lections, they would rather throw the weight into his, than the Kinderhook seale. The Van Buren leaders, when they saw how strongly this feeling ; manifested itself, all of a sudden found out that ' 'jome of the most influential democrats. Mr. Dromoole, of Virginia, amongst others, had not yet ar- i iiv< d, and that, therefore, it would be politic to nd-1 ii mpiI meet apaiil tlli* CVeniria T'>i? ur. .iiii.ioiHv n^rfi d ii|k?ii. Mr. Dromjjooie, and outer* ui uiv V irfftiiiA delegation, enme in tin- afternoon, and the rn?KU? will be held in f ull strength within one hour of the time at which I now write. During the day I have heard some curious atones about the virtuous efforts made by the several candidates tor Printer. Mr. Hryant, of the N'ew York Kvening Post, has found Mr. .lino* Kendall, of the Kxpoaitor, lutlier a uioiv dangerouscustomer than wa* dreamt of in his philosophy. Amos linn commenced upon another tack?he is working u|?on sympathy now; he has brought all hi* sufferings' under the Stockton A* Stoke* attair to hear upon the , mnvaj*; he talks about the bread and water?the bad bread and the stagnant wa er?that he miirht have had to swallow along with the judgment in thatnflau. Amos may overturn the coalition yet, 1 or at leant?become a partner. Meanwhile, the Wnigs have niiaen from their! clumber*, and are In have a caucu-i meeting to-night to see what '!,ev can do. It is idle to speculate. I shall furm-li you with the result of the meetings as soon as they are over.

Monday morning will bring together a full, active, and 1 trust, efficient body of Legislators. Hut there is a vast influx of new members this session, and, like every other sublunary vocation, however, legislation is a business that requires to be studied, and unless there is more prudence, more calmness, more of u conciliatory spirit,in this than preceding Congresses have shown, much of the members' time, and (what is more consequence) much of the people's money, may be spent in idle wrangling about matters of no earthly interest to any but the individuals engaged in it Ki.cvem O'Clock, P. M. The Democratic Caucus has this moment adjourned. It opened rather inauspiciously,the Calhoun members showing the suspicions they entertained of the rough riding intended by the Van Hurenites. The leaders of the Vun Buren taction, however, openly disclaimed any wish but to ascertain the irue feeling of the democratic party at large. And in order to show their sincerity in this matter, adonted a proposition'that not less than two-thiids of the votes of all present, would be necessary for the nomination. After much discussion, and a profusion of speeches, the vote was taken. The meeting consisted of 113 members?necessary to a choice 7tf. At the first ballot, Mr. Jones, of Virginia, a Van Buren member, got 77 votes. So, he is (or will be) the Speaker of the next House of K enresentatives. The nomination for Printer was not gone into, out another Democratic Caucus is to be held on Monday morning, for sundry purposes, one of which, doubtless, is to discuss and aecidc the fate of Messrs. Bryant, Kendall and Blair. J. K. Washington, 1>. C., l>ec. 8, 1843. I made hurried mention, at the close of my last night's letter, of the result of the Democratic Caucus, held in the Capitol, at 8 P. M. Late as was the hour, I had not then learnt the result of the Whig Caucus, convened at the same time, in another part of the same stately building. The whigs generally seemed inclined to think that there was but little for them to arrange, and, after a few 9ratorical bursts about the ultimate triumph of whig princi pies, and their determination to stick together like a baud of Spartan*, or a cluster of hedgehogs, they agreed t<? run solid ui>on all their old officers, from Speaker downwards. They discussed also the shape in which they should oppose the admission of those members elected hv general ticket, and finally agreed upon the plan to stoj> them at the threshold. Here will be another puzzling piece of business for the clerk?here will be another grand commingling of interruption, confusion, commotion and legislative indecorum. It is understood that Mr. John Quincy Adams is to lead off on the side of the Constitution and the act of last session, and judging from that honorable member's usual tenacity when he gets possession of the floor, and keeping in view that at that stage the House will be without rulers, it will be rather a hard task for the united democracy to get him down. The democrats, at their caucus to-morrow morning, intend to concert measures to push on the organization at all hazards, which, with their_inuncnse majority, they believe they can easily do. Their policy will be to leave all the oratory to the whigs, and content themselves with a share in the voting. Every day gives a new face to the state and prospects of political parties. Hut yesterday, and the democratic ranks were split up, broken, confused, disordered, and torn to pieces by faction. To-day they arc in solid tile, firm, united, and, ns they think, invincible. Yesterday, they were nil anxiety, all conf usion, all suspicious of each other's movements. To-day they are calm, collected, and loving as brothers going to church, like good citizens, after they have brushed all the cares of business off their heads, lint yesterday, and the whigs were revelling in the prospect that the breach in the democratic ranks was wide enough to allow them to pass through to an easy victory. To-day. they cast a chilling look upon the dissolution of all their hopes. But though disappointed in thin, they " don't give up the ship," anu they too have gone to draw consolation from the only pure fountain. The democrats have always received credit lor being ndmiruble tacticians, and the proceeding of Insi night sliow that they intend to preserve that cii ira' iT in the great battle of 1H44. They met ] lull of suspicion, jealousy, and bitterness towards each other, and they came away with new friendship and new love for the whole human race in general, and democracy in particular. Detail is useless; suffice it to say, that the leadingVan Buren men, the leading Calhoun men ! the leading Johnson, Buchanan, and Cass men, last night, freely declared, in the name of themselves and others, their determination to support the nominee of the convention, whoever might be their first choice. This is looked upon as equivalent to a declaration of union upon Van Buren, as it is the almost universal belief of the party that lie will get a majority in Convention on ttie first ballot. This great change in the democratic atmosphere has not been without its effect upon the patriotic candidates for Public Printer. As soon as the democrats began to enjoy the unanimity that prevailed amongst them, the whisper passed around that it was necessary to support "The (tlobe." Many of them thought that Blair was too uglv and too illnatured to swallow, and urged sympathy for Kendall. Blair followed up the opportunity, however, and convinced "the democracie" that for any man to start into extensive circulation such another newspaper as his, before the election of '44, was altogether ari I'topian idea. So far as the feeling is at present, he has fought the battle successfully, in.,;, ?.;n >?. <1,.. .. .11 to fall back upon his chance of getting something from Congress for the Stockton \* .Stokes prosecution ;and Mr. W. (J. Bryant, of the New York Evening Poet, will he knocked into a cocked hat. President Tyler is never heard of here. He is shut unto nil but a few sycophants, who are eating tin ir share of his official crumbs, and making him believe that at the next Presidential election.no man will have the shadow of a chance against him. J. L. Mr. CauioiVs Position and Prospects.?According to the irivings out of the different journals in the confidence of Mr. Calhoun, it really npi<ears to us that this distinguished statesman is in a very fair way of, in a short time, effectually cutting his throat. We don't mean this nhvsicallv. hut noJiti cally. His political existence certainly ajipears lo be on the verge of that suicidal termination. It seems that in* friends are preparing to make a separate organization at the Baltimore Convention, under the belief that he hus no clianee there. Indeed it was very foolish for any of his friends ever to have supposed that he hud any chance there. So, after having given hi* countenance to th?- Convention for three vearti pan, Mr. Culhoun in now to come out at the end of the day and attempt a separate organization, which must inevitably ruin all his future prosjiects! Pshaw! He is merely repeating the melancholy game which ruined,Crawford and himself about twenty years ago. Mr. Crawford was then the democratic candidnte, and Mr. Culhoun originated a movement to defeat him,which ended in the ruin of both, bringing as it did, new and successful competitors into the field. The present slate of aflairs is precisely similar, and if Calhoun persists in attempting to affect a separate organization, it does not require great sagacity or knowledge of parly movements in thin country, to foresee both Vn? Buren and ( alhoun unhorsed, and Mr. Clay quietly riding over the ground without a rir?l. This in the only explanation we can kivc " 'he prevent prosjiert* of Cnlhonn, and we firmly believe that the men who have charge of hi* interests in ihi>< region, are the most shortsighted and t??olii?li # ! of politicians, that ever attempted the not Very I trifling or easy work of organizing a party. It re f quire# experience, common sense, brains, genius, | to do that. It doe*. The Hon. Mukf.s II.

Post ("tffic* Rkform.?A ma** meeting in In- | vor ol reforming the present odious |>ost oHice ay?1 tern, is to lie he Id in liartford'thi* evening Another Great Wud iMtlngwi Ymtf America" In the Field for thti Week. Wc pcrceive from an advertisement in the " Herald"?? paper which we generally read in the couroe of the day?that -there is to be a great meeting of " Young Atnerictt" in the Twelfth Ward this evening, at the house of Mr. Mills. Yorkville. At this meeting, a full and lucid cx|h>bition of the principle* and views of the i?arty, will be given. This will on many accounts be a very important meeting. We believe that the Twelfth , Ward is the " mother ward"?the place where ! the wed was first sown, and where it first sprung up ! into vigorous existence. We expect that on tJiis occasion ground will be taken of such a brdail ami comprehensive character, as to embrace all the reforming spirits of the country, from one extremity to the other, so as to embrace all the friend* of the new movement in Congress and the State Legislatures. It is very clear that we are now on the eve of a very important political revolution, and ii is necessary for " Young America," in this | city, to enlarge the boundaries of its creed, so a* to make it extend beyond mere opposition to the impudent attempts of O'Connell and others to interfere with our institutions, or to organize troops of adherents in our land. The new party must embrace in their creed, opposition to all the rogueries of both parties, and the fixed resolution of redeeming the country from the tyranny of faction and all domestic treasonable influences. Now, with respect to foreigners, a great many ot j theui, it ia well known, and admitted to, l>y "Young America," are persons of quiet unobtrusive character, industrious and respectable citizens, not at all Interfering with our political affairs, and blending in a kind and peaceful spirit with the great American family. They are unquestionably advantageous to the country. But when you we a band of foreigners, of any nation, organizing themselves as such in our very midst, and attempting to control our political movements, then it is high time for every lover of his country to set his face against them. In this remark, we allude particularly to the Repeal associations in the United States. What are theyl Organized bands of Irishmen uuder the dictation of O'Connell, who calls upon them, oh the arrival of every steamer, to come out and make a prodigious attack on the institutions of the south, and thus make an opening for the wedge to effect the dissolution of this confederacy. It is against such atrocious foreign influence, that every true American should take ground. Then, again, in regard to religion, the Catholic faith is just as good as any other, considered in a mere religious point of view. That road may lead to Heaven just as safely and readily as nnv nfher Tlifi-f* mnv In lu> sum lip n great many more toll-gates to pass, but the traveller by that route can reach the New Jerusalem, as comfortably us he who takes a different road, just as the Irishman who sails lor New York, is as certain of reaching it, if no accident happen, whether he sail from Belfast or Cork. It is not against the Catholic religion, as a religion, that opposition should be directed; but against the attempts of the Po|>e and his Propaganda, and any number of his Bishops, who are appointed by him in this country, to operate on our legislation, or organize parties to interfere with our affairs. Such, for example, was that organization of a Catholic party, made by Bishop Hughes, two or three years ago, in Carroll Ilall. That was a visable outrage on (i ?;icy?on cur institutions?on the very religion itself of which bishop llughos protested to be a dignitary. Now, we have no doubt that this distinction will be perceived and respected by the new party. And, indeed, we have already seen evidence of that, for at one of their recent meetings, when allusion was made to a public school, with a cross on its roof, and one of the auditors called out, "Down with it," the Speaker very properly replied, " No: let religion alone?it is not to be disturbed in this country; but let us put down the principle"?meaning the principle which would admit the offensive patronage and sanction of any one form of religion more than another. This was in the right spirit. As to the present aspect of the new party, and its hopes for the future, there is no doubt that a large portion ot the members ot the Legislature at A I- i bany, are on the way to form n coalition with the j new movement. About forty or fifty of the Stale j Legislators?comprising many of the soundest and beit men in the .State?are pledged to carry out constitutional reform. Here is common ground on which they and the American Republicans can meet and fraternize. In Congress itself, also a large body of the members are prepared to cast eft the trammels of party. Po?t Oftice Reform, and a number of other popular measures of improvement, will aftord them an opportunity of exhibiting their desire to take new and patriotic ground. Thus on all hands we se?? the beckoning omens of future pros|>erity, strength, and usefulness of the new party. Let those who direct the movement see to it, that they improve the encouragement thus afforded, and that they linger and faint not by the way. Ot'r Foreign Relations.?We see it stated in pome of the Eastern pa|>ers, that on one occasion, when Mr. Macready visited the United States Court in Itostoh, .Judge Story stopped the proceedings, came down from the bench, and cordially saluted the great visiter, and entered into familiar and friendly conversation with him on a variety of topics?on the theatre in particular. This may he considered as an aspect in which to view our fo- i reign relations. In this country, dittingui&hed 1 foreigners have,'on all occasions, been treated wilh great regard and attention. And this has had a great deal todo ill the creation offriendly feelings between the two continents, in spite of the lettersofthe Rev. Sidney Smith and the refusal of Pennsylvania to pay her dchts. When FannytKlssler came here, she, an the greatest in her art, was received with enthusiasm and the homagt* of the whole jieople. She was visited by all the fashionable people and invited to their houses. Her career was one continued triumph, :ind the crowning scene was that in which she executed a few of her most elegant pirouettes and laid the cn|>-stone of the famous Bunker Hill Monument, thus uniting the |>oetry of motion and the spirit of patriotism m one graceful and comprehensive act. So it is with all the great foreign artists. (,'inti and Artot have been almost feted and idolized since tlx*ir arrival. So with Olc Hull?and ho with them nil. There in only one unfortunate exception against thin reciprocity Jof good feelingHut we suppoae that things have much altered ill Loudon since that time. We allude to the reception given to Forrest and Ilackett. We sup|K>ae, however, as we have just hinted, that if they were to visit Loudon now, they would meet a reception more adequate to their merit*. Hut there is do hope of Sidney Smith?all this is lost upon him. Hi* demands still stick in his throat, and will stick there for a loin; lime ><> eome, according to all appearance* from Pennsylvania. We are sorry for him. If we could relieve him, we would cheerfully. Would praise ami puffery do ! If bo, we will clear his gullet for him instaiiter. <>r.\np < oMTur.?A VLiy n herrhi riUoicftl entertainment is ottered at the Society Library Concert Hooin this evening.

Tammany J lull and the A|>ollo were r<idiuiit with the beauty, weallii and fashion of " Young America." At the former place, the large bad room was crowded with a multitude, which in elegance, unaffected grace and genuine native purity, we never (taw equalled, much let* surpassed in this or any other city. The decorations of the room were in exquisite taste, and reflected the greatest credit on the taste and judgment of those to whom that part of the arrangements had been entrusted. At the Apollo, the scene was almost a.? nmiiHin uuu imposing, i n<* Dull Here was me nrsi given by a new association?the Neapolitan?one recently formed here for the purpose of creating in tlie fashionable world a revolution analagous to that which "Young America" is producing in the political arena. At Washington Hall, also, a large and brilliant company tripped it on the light fantastic toe. It is Very interesting to mark the change which ' is now going on in Society in this city. In the circlesformerly considered the haut ton, and who 1 arrogated to themselves the exclusive right and j title to be regarded as the only powwasors of all that i is elegant and refined in civilization, a great ' revolution has taken place. The cominer- | cial disasters of the last few years, and the re- i vulsions in businesH generally, have almost annihilated every vestige of this aristocracy. A few fa-: mily circles still retain their position, but they do not appear in public. Their "set" has been broken up, and they endeavor to make amends for the depreciation of public opportunities of display, by giting private parties of unusual magnificence, and affect a great contempt for vulgar amusements, as they style the theatre, the concert room, and the "assemblies" at the Apollo and Tammany llall. But "Young America" is coming into the field with all her feminine grace und loveliness. She is rapidly filling up the places heretofore occupied by a mushroom aristocracy, who have gone to the devil. And it was truly refreshing to look ui>on the gay ( and joyous throngs who last night fdled the now fashionable ball-room of the city. There was no affectation of European superfine elegance and refinement. But there was a charming republican simplicity?a natural and graceful propriety?and a , variety of beauty, from the blushing girl of sixteen to ihe matron in her full development of womanly charms, which showed that the native elements of all that is refined in civilization are amongst us in abundance. There were the blooming ranks from which our future elite are to be produced. No , sickly exotics, but the pure, fresh, healthful, un fading indigenous flowers of loveliness and elegance, brought into existence on the cash principle, i and destined like it to flourish in enduring beauty, after all the perishable materials of a corrupt and i rotten aristocracy shall have disappeared for ever, leaving not a trace behind. Blackwell's Island.?The atmosphere of Blackwell's Island does not appear to exercise a 1 salutary influence on the mind of genius. Mike Walsh seems to get worse and worse, instead of getting better and better. His last paper is a i>erfect embodiment of bitter and malignant feeling against the whole world. Now, Mike might have nude his paper very readable during his residence ! on IJlackwell's Island. If, for instance, he had studied the mysteries of human nature on that , beautiful Island, he might have found innumerable 1 subjects of interesting and amusing description. If he had looked on his associates, as Lugene Sue 1 has regarded the inmates of La Force, Mike ' might have given the woild a very entertaining, pathetic, instructive work. It is not yet too late 1 for him to redeem his eharacter in this respect. He has still tome time longer, which he may profitably employ in this way. Instead of pour- , ing out his vials of wrath against every body and every thing, let hitn take our advice, and J study the state of society on the Island, and j the progress of human nature under that peculiar i j code of laws and social regulations which have | been adopted there. Let him inform us whether Fnnrierisni Iisr ninile anv nrnercKs inimnifst the in- < habitant?, and whether any new and philosophic j views of the organization of society have been broached. The degree of civilization?the prevalent manners and customs?the peculiarities ol habit?the variety of character?the physical and moral condition of the sojourners generally?all ; these topics are eminently worthy of calm and philosophic observation. It would be very interesting to ascertain accurately whether or not there is in the aggregate a greater amount of roguery in a corner of? Wall street than on the whole island, from one end to the other, including even the buildings occupied by the officers to whom the administration of the laws, \rc. of the territory ha.1been entrusted1? Let Mike by all means give Uh information on these points, and thus give us some pictures ofBlackwell's, Island as graphic and interesting as we have occasionally given of Coney Island. Music anij Theatricals.?It appears that Ole [ Bull, made his rntrtr into'Philadelphia under rather 1 singular rircuiiiftances. We clip the following i paragraph from the Gazette :?

We know Justice Gilbert well, uud lm\r always considered hitu both humane and just?but how is this:? Hahlkm, Doc. 1st, lM.t. Mr. Kdiiuk :? An \uu have in the columns of jour paper advocuteJ, time after time, a reform ami thorough purging of our i> resent police system, I scud you the following, by inserting which, you ,will greatly oblige on? of your manyreaders. I called on Wednesday morning last at the Upper Police Ottico, to get out warrants ugainst two persons lor assault aud a trespass on my real estate at Harlem, and passing by the oltice on Thursday, I stopped in to inquire if the warrants had been issued. Justice Gilbert and Mr. Frye, the clerk, (whom 1 mistook lor Justice Taylor,) informed me that they had and had both been there and given bail, (whereas, as 1 afterwards ascertained, only one had up to that time been arrested,) and that there was also a ^ross warrant ont for me in an otticer's hands. 1 told them that I was not aware ot It. They then told me 1 must consider myself under arrest 1 asked by whom They replied, we the Justices arrest you ; and asked me if I was not provided with bail, which they said was required to the amount of *100. 1 told them that 1 was not; but that I should have been, had I known that a warrant had been ukiimI ncrains* n>? i ? ' V> oJ ?I dentally stopped ther?. I having been well acquainted with Justice Gilbert for upwards of thirty years, asked if my own liond was not sufficient. They replied, no ; that 1 must get that of some other person. I then osked permit sion to go out and get bail. They refused to let me leave the room in any wav whatever, even with an officer. 1 told them that 1 wished to step across the street to Mr. Lewi* Dotv's, who would willingly become my bail; at the same time my horse and carriage were standing in the street, unfastened, as I left them when I entered the office. They denied me this request, and Gilbert called an offi cer and ordered him to lock me up in a oell. As I was leaving the room, on my wav to the cell, in custody of an officer, a gentleman happened to step into the office with whom I was well acquainted ; 1 made known to him the situation in which 1 wns placed, when lie willingly became my bail, lor which 1 return him my thanks. Now, sir. had the worthy Justice a right to arrest me iu this manner when the warrant was in an officer's hands. And after they had arrested me, had they a right <o detain me as they did and prevent me from going out to ol>tain bail, even in the custody of an oftiber. Why, had 1 been the most degraded convict, I could not have been treated with more severity than I was by the Honorable Justice, with whom, as 1 before stated, I had been acquainted with for upwards of thirty years, and who well knew that 1 was a responsible man and a respectable citizen. Now, sir, w hether they had any ill feelings towards me, and wished to revenge themselves in such a cowardly manner,I know not, but whatever their object was, it wns certainly small business indeed; and I hope that if Justice Gurrit Gilbert or Mr. Frye should ever happen to be placed in such a situation, they may never have their feelings wounded us mine were by their ungentlemanly conduct. 1 remain, s'ir, Yours, See., ANDREW McGOWN.
